A WU!U FOI4 r-MlKXTS .'D TEA'intKS. BT T. S. AltTlILK. Incorrigible hoy 1" exclaimed Mr. Wilkins, addressing a lad who stood before him with (lush ed face, and eyes resting iit-on the floor. " Did I not positively f irbid this ?" To his fathtr's angry interrogation, this l-oy answered not. ' Did you hear me, sir :" Still no answer. " William !" Mr. Wilkins laid Ids hand, with a sharp grip, on the boy's shoulder. The latter raised his eyes, that were moist with fathering tars, and fixed them, with all appealing glance, on his father's lace. " Why don't you answer me, say ? Iidn't I I'sitivcly f.irbitl your going with those boys ?" " Yes, sir," was faintly answered. " And yet, aRer my p.rohibition, you went, thus acting from a deliberate spirit of disobedi ence." Mr. Wilkins was much excited. He was rath er a stern man ; quick in his conclusions, strong of will, yet not intuitive in his estimatesof char acter. William, his oldest boy, from his prone ncss to go wrong, had given him a great deal of trouble. To use his own words, he was " almost out of heart with him." His second son, Ed ward, was altogether a different lad. From his earliest years, he had been mild an obedient. If his parents forbade his going anywhere, the proliibition was never regarded as a hardship. Possessing an innate power to abstract pleasure from onlinarv surroundinirs ; content with the present good, whatever it might be ; he had lit- j tie temptation to wtimter irom rigm paui.-,. ov. aiKerentwastiieinuemeucii.ua..iei ei ni.a.u , Htcins. lie nau a quick unmi, aim a su-onir , imagination, with coyctousncss, excitability, and a love of sensual pleasures. Now, it neverscem cd to occur to his father, that the marked tlitl'ei ence between Wilhni and his brother Edward, was something forwhich the former was to be pitied, rather than blamed. He thought of the boy's iierverseness as acquired or deliberate ; not as the fountain sending forth bitter waters, be cause it possessed no innate sweetness. Every wrong act was set down as the olispi ing of a pnr-por-e to do wrong, instead of a yielding to tempta tion. And so, he had no patience with the lad, who, it may be remarked, was a better boy than he had been at the same age. The father was excited at his child's tlisobcdi ence, and, rejecting all excuses, punished liim with unwonted severity. The mother's deeper love for her cliiklrcn made her wiser. She better understood the ground work of William's character ; cotdd see farther below the surface. AVheu his father blamed, the only pitied ; for she saw that in the Ixiy's mind .r.K,f. ?nt.n Klm-rhs with he-.,,i;,nrv- ... ,..,..., ...v clinings ; and if heoftcii fell, he sometimes con- A ,',b Kdward. all elided on smoothie as a summer sea ; for his impulses w;ere to g.od rather than to evil. To'oU-y was an instinct of his mind. Often did Mr. Wilkins unwisely hold up Edward as an example for his oldest sou the effect was to sow seeds of self-righteousness in the breast of the former, and anger towards his brother in that of the latter. Very differently, however, acted the mother. She Clever repelled tor Ting toy ; but, even when gncycd aad of- funded by his worst faults, sought to draw hhn to her side and win his confidence. When he came weeping to her room, and angry with his father for the punishment inflicted, she said to him ia a grieving, not a chiding voice " IIow could you do so, William ?" " I wasn't in any harm, mother," sobbed the boy. u We only went over into Eailcy's wood for some nuts." " Still, you did wrong; for' your father posi tively forbade your going with those boys." " They're not bad boys, mother." That isn't-the point, William.

" Thee is danger in an associ ation with those boys," said the mother. " I never saw the-in do anything so very wrong." " What would you say cd boys who were guil ty of robbing orchards' and hen-roosts V A red spot burned instantly on Williams' face. "Would you call that very wrong V Yes, ma'am." " Of such wicked a-ts have these boys been guilty ; and into such wicked acts you may be led, my son, if you keep their company." " Why , mother ! Do you think I could be tempted to do such a thing ?'' You are easily tempted, William, too easily; and tliis is v.hy your father is so strict in his in junctions. If he permits you to keep company with boys who rob orchards aiid heii-roo.-ts. he has uo security that you will not be led astray into commission of the same evils; or, if m.-t ae tnnllv c-uiltv of such deeds, that you will be ad- dged guilty, because seen in the comp; J c ' " ilV of those who coiiintiL them. William looked serious, and stood for some time with his eyes cast upon the lioor. " Why didn't he tell me all this ?" heat length asked. "I'm sure, if I'd known they were thieves, I'd never been caught in their company. lJut that's just the way with father! lie's al ways saying Don't do tliis.or don't do that. But nev er gives a rer.son." " Hush, my son. It is not right to speak so of your father." " But it's true, mother. If he'd told me, when lie forbade my going with Mr. Jones' boys, that they had stolen apples, and robbed hen's nests, do you think I'd have been seen in their compa ny i No, indeed. He would have saved me from disobedience and punishment." Farther remarks, of this tenor, the mother did not permit her boy to make.. Their force came upon her mind with almost stunning ef fect. At school, William was no favorite with his teachers. Too rarely, indeed, do we find the in tellectual endowments, requisite for a teacher, oiiitiil wilb lhiistt looriil mi.ilitie-s that should ever , c Cii!ieJ by th0i,c t0 lQm ore committed , all.iiriporlaIlt work of educating the minds of immortals. Unfortunately for William ,,.. . A "iikins, his teachers were meu of no intuitive perceptions of character, and no uuscliish regard for the well-being of others. The natural impul ses of this wayward 'boy w ere rvnuUul hihiii. in anger, and prejudged as if they were deliberate purposes. Moreover, as he soon acquired the reputation of being a troublesome boy, lie was observed more narrowly, and censured and pun ished more frequently than other lads guilty of like offences. He grew reckless in consequence. His efforts to do right were never met by appro val, wliile his wrong deeds always brought a swift reaction. Punishments, complaints, and temporary sus pensions, marked the progress of his education, bringing with them additional punishments at home. Lnder such a system, the boy's life w as rendered miserable ; while, instead of growing better, he was daily growing worse that is, less hopeful of Ins own ability to do what was right. Never stimulated, tlirough encouragement, cx- ; .... i .u,. i:i.i ,1 1 j T U1S ioiiier-auu me i ine ..i -,,u had small power to overcome the adverse m Ido iiu- j ence exerted at almost every point-and soured ! towards his father and Iris teachers, ,.c was grow- ! ing more and nrore reckless, and really beginning ; to think himself what his father most unwisely j pronounced him "A boy doomed to du-grae-e both himself and family. Such was the state of affairs, when, one uay, wfiile a gentleman was in conversation with Mr. Wilkins, William came to him and delivered some message. " Is this your son V asked the gentleman " Yes, sir, that is 1113- oldest boy," was an swered. " A fine, bright-looking lad !" said the man. " I only wish he was as good as he looks," re plied Mr. Wilkins, in a voice that conveyed quite as disparaging a meaning as his words. Instantly the countenance of William, which had brightened at the stringer's remark, fell. A few moments afterwards, he w as sharply re proved by his father, for turning over some pape rs on his desk, when, with a Hushed and angry brow, he went hastily from the room. The ryes f the stranger fallowed the retiring firm f the boy with an 1 if wtwrr -it """for a ie .V In note acu- moments lie remained tiion-lului ami s:.u.t. tJ.is pau.-o, a i.ni came 1:1.

" It it.ay be, that the lioy is ll 't so mucli to. blame as his teachers," said the gentleman. :' Mr. Mellevilie 'a' school has the bc.-t reputation in the city." ' That doesn't make it the most desirable, how ever. Your son, I should suppose, from a glance at Lis fice, is a bright, active lay, full of impulse, and not very quick to think of consequences." ' You hit his character pretty well. Add, perverse, and always mure inclined to go w rong than right, and you have a fuller doscrijdion." " A bad school lbr such a boy," said the gen- tlemau. ' If lie were my son, I would remove him at once," - " Why so ?" " There are over two hundred in the school." " Yes." " And five teachers." "I don't know the exact number." I do. And each of these teachers gives in struction, in certain branches, ekiily, to each of those two hundred scholars. Now, it stands to rea.-on, thai rarliculr.r adaptations are out of the question. A certain routine of lessons is all that can possibly be expected. As to having special regard to the peculiarities of temperaments and mental activities in scholars, that is out of the quest ti'.n. i-.acii nas to io nuu upon a uiuu 01 Procrustean bed, ;nd, if too short, stretched to tho required dimensions if too long, .-horn of some fair proportions.

Troublesome b.ys arc rdways marked in" such institutions, and gotten rid of as quickly as possible. Now, these troublesome boys are, usually, those who have the greater force of character, whose hereditary impulses are strongest. If wisely led into the right way, they make our best and most cine ient men ; but if, through defect of education, they go wrong, the world kuows them as its worst ene mies. They need the wisest care ; the tenderer t and most considerate treatment. They do not commit oH'eiiees so much for a purpose to do wrong, as from hereditary impulses. These im pulses, when they appear, should not excite our anger, but our pity. We should do all in our power to trive the boy a moral strength to over come in his daily temptations to wrong ; and. when he does wrong, while we censure evil as evil, we should seek to inspire the youthful wrest ler with cheerful hope? of Until conquest " You startle my mind with new views on this subject," .said Mr. waL-iiii. " A bxht is break ing in upon me. But, where are teachers to lie found who will regard their scholars witn a wise and conscientious discrimination ? Who will take these active, troublesome boys, rnd in pa tience and long suffering, help them to overcome their constitutional perverseness ?" " Such men arc to be found," replied the gen tleman. " They are not many m nuniuer, How ever. One I do know, to whom I induced niy sister to send a lad who was always in trouble at Mr. Mellcv ille's, and w ho was finally expelled from the school."' " And with what result ?"' eagerly asked Mr Wilkins tween them. Deliberately, I am sure, my ncphew vould not, in anything, olfeiid his jierceptor.

He had now help and encouragement, j not angry repulse, ami worse than useless punish ment. He was no longer compelled to adapt him self to all surroundin-' circumstances ; but there was a judicious bending of circumstances to his case ; and a wise guardianship over him. looking to the repression of evil and the cneouiagcnieiit ol what was good. And so, instead of being warped and twisted through a false external pressure, he grew up into a goodly tree, beating, in manhood, fair fruit in rich abundance. LaJus' Wrtulh. rem Ilusirtss.
