Read by D. S. Sprhigs, before the Calais
1 Literary Association, Dec. 1S56. '
: If' a preference m the study of sciences
iii our common schools is due any one
branch, that branch is English Grammar.
We may search In vain the whole circle of
science to find another branch, a knowl
edge of which is so frequently called into
requisition as this. Whether we' are en
gaged in putilfc speaking or private con
versation, ' in i'eading or writing on any
su'-gecl,' of engaged in thinking, a know l
edge of this1 branch, is a matter of the
first Importance. ' ' '
We by no means wish to see other
branches of science neglected; for thev
are all highly beneficial in their respective
,. laces,, but; we wish to see a proper esii
na'.e put 'iijion this one that Is so wel'
ealeulaleTT to adorn all other intellectu.-1
acq'ilreineiits, and present at the same
time a iboiiudiess field for investigation
and thought; to see the rules which gov
ern (or shoulil govern) Our language ob
served, not only by the public speaker,
luit by those .engaged in private couver
saiiou, :also; then, and not till then, will
this important branch be properly under
stood ' arid appreciated. We will then
see carried out in practice, what is nv
taught, only Jn theory, aud behold as the
result the practical benefits that must .in
evitably follow such a course. , Consider
but for a moment the benefits that would
result to ihe student who is engaged in
the study of Grammar, to hear those wiih
whom he converses constantly apply the
rules and principles which he is laboring
to "learn; ' But instead of this, the child
is taught to "murder the " King's English "
as son.as, it can lisp a name, and thus it
goes on until, a practice is acquired which
is seldom, abandoned, though months and
years be devoted to the stud)' of rnhs by
which errors' in language may be detected
find avoided. ,. As a proof of this fact.
We need only, refer to the gross errors and
Jfidjcjron sMv nerslfft, freqqently.'coinnilt-
ted, not only by pefsons'engiVged in pri-;
vate conversation, but by the' public speak
er also. , ilow often do we hear the nom
inative' used iustead of, the objective, and.
'jviee versia?"' The -pronoun them instead
of the adjective those, and many-other j
errors , equally gross,, by those who have
devoted mouths and years to the study of
Grammar. f 4 L : :iT
' Now, ' what is the reason of this? It
must oe admitted' thai in 'many cases,' it is
not attributable to a want of knowledge
in this science, but it is because they, hare
been so- long accustomed to using such
expressions that they are'unable to over
come; ihe force rof- h.abit; or at least they
do not! ; But we will pass to the school
, i -
roonij where students 'are .engaged in the
study of ' English Grammar, and what do
w there' hear? 'The 'plainest rules viola
ted,' the i'lio'st sliiinieful and ludicrous b!un
ders. committed, 'and whole sentences spo
ken, the correc.t signification of which, i,
exactly the reverse of what , is intended.
Nor' will we: exclude the teacher from this
charge, for violations ' of the same kind
are almost as frequent with him as with
the, student, and, that too when engaged
perhaps in bearing the recitation of a
lessotr- containing;. un' explanation of 4he
very isame . rules he is violating.7' The in
qiiirv will naturally arise' how can these
faults (it Taults theyniay. be called; be
remedied,?.. The : answer t is easily given.
Liet'ns have Grammar taught practically
as well as theoretically let teachers and
: 1 ' .'. . .t .!.' j
parents laoor io impryve iiiemseiycs uuu
become , better, acquainted with the rules
: . .( v J ...... i - f .
of .laiiguage,-.and make aix application of
the same at all limes, in .'all places, and
under:aircircumstances. ' By So doing, a
great hmouiit of time and labor would be
saved,.; and- we. wouli have , much, better
Grammarians and, lnauy more of them.. ,.

Perhaps there is not :i more hn;:roising
region in our whole country for a people
to locate in than Uuh. ; Shut , out from
all iiitei'courte except such as may be ha-J
by the most trying privations devoid .of
almost everything like natural 'prod net
rigorous iu climate sterile in soil, com
parativelyremoved from all markets for
such products as the Industry of its in
habitants can force from the reluctant
earth without nnvagahle streams, and
inclosed by lofty and rugged mountains,
Utah is gradually and steadily Le?oniing
an object of fair greater importance; than
w. are for the most part aware of. Im
pelled by the most incredible .fanaticism,
and under. the must absolute typeoftheo
eratic government paying blind and
zealous obedience to the behests ' of their
leader, those people are literally perform
ing miracles. Their missionaries.are scat
tered over the world, and though frequent
ly repelled with scorn and derision, return
to their labors with the most astounding
pertinacity. But a few years ago, and a
handfull of refugee men and wonfen from
Missouri were wending an untrodden path
through the heart of a vast and unknown
tract.'' in search of some place where they
might shelter from the persecutions of the
world, and now that handful - of outcasts
have grown to be a powerful people, de
manding admission into the Union on
equal terms with the States, and setting
the power'and imthority of the American
Government at defiauce. ; , '
The rapid progress and colonization of
California can be.ac,counted for on natural
principles, but the advancement, of "Utah"
is almost miraculous.' Thousands are flock
ing to their standard from England, Ger
many; Australia and the .United States.
They ha ve their emissaries in all these and
others countries, diligently preparing the
way and making the paths straight for im
migration to their stronghold. The rev
enue of the Territory is freely expended to
promote this object, and instead of .being
diminished, is largely increased -by the
added population rfur industry is strictly
enforced, in Urah. Already they have as
sumed the name of State for their Teri
tory.'and have opened up every branch of
manufacture necessarv-to I heir subsistence
and .independence from the contributions
of other places. They manufacture all
sorts'of Iron-ware and cutjerv. ell kinds
of Tanning implements, carpets, raise wool,
and make cloth, cotton fabrics of all kinds,
in the same manner; paper, saddlery,; fur
niture, build steam-engines-ond - many
others things. They pay great attention to
raising the finest breeds of stock, pouitrv,
&c; they slso encourage the fine' 'arts and
! ai'iting,mnsic,tc.ore handsomely patron
ize d, and in several points they are in .the
advance of Califor.ua, with, all her .boasted
wealth and vast natural resources.
These are facts stern accusatory facts
