'J' 1 1 1 Vmvh::: liSDAY : ::: lrt, 1H07, TEKEI'IT til" LIFS INSURANCE IL1US T?ATD. A cotcni crary luniilics us with the following iiriiolo in relation to Life In surance. Life Insurance is the cliiM of bencfi It may hnvc a coMmercial. basis, ns all monetary schemes must hnvo that arc intended for hutnan benefit when unsus tainctl by aims, nevertheless it is a con trivanco id rich origin, and could only emanate Irom a mind thoughtful to im prove the habits ol tlu wliulo family ol man. Surely that must be esteemed a magnificent e.-uabliMimeiitthrough which we can purchase a 'ortun.i by small un- uual contributions, so that when the contributor dies he can bequeath that 4..fhiti - M-h.-ipv.-r lie lnnv dpwirn fn possess it. Kvon in the first year of this arrangement, and if the insurer should have made but a single payment, the slinuhitLd fortune is still at Ins dis rosal should he die. In fact, it fre quently occurs that a man thus purchas cs for a few dollars a sum that it would take a long lile of industry to amass, se curing a provision for his wife and fam ily wholly beyond hi reach but or such a regenerating medium. We reuard Lifo Insurance ns part ot the morality of life, ami when a young man arrives at the a;;c of self-support one of the first uses that he should make of his surplus earnings is to secure a lifo policy.. It should be t!i2 initial net ol voluntary prudence, for the rates of premium arc much less in youth than in maturer life, and he who insures thus early will have good leason to congratu late himself upon his position when he may have assumed the responsible obli nations of husband and lather. It is true that prudence sometimes cxemplilies itself in other forms as well ns ;n a resort to life insurance : but there is no svstcm by which man can so thor oughly a:id so immediately make a pro vision for his family as through tho in estimable channel. Let us assume, for instance, that a young man twenty-six years of fure, with a wife, little family and 8-000 per annum, finds that, after discharging every claim upon him in an honorable manner, he is able to put aside 8200 per annum as a sinking fund, in case a premature death may make his wife a widow and his children orphans It will take ncaily a quarter ot a centu ry of such uniform prudence to amass the sum ot ?000 ; but a policy ot lusu effected for a similar amount upon pay nieut of no more than 03, oO yearly The great triumph, however, io such a contract is that the insurer secures at once a dower to his wife and a provision for Ins children. 1 hus.it the insure dies at thirty two years of age, his wife uud family secure from the policy the lull sum ol toOOU ; if the same calamity befalls the uninsured, who has pursued the other course ol prudence, aud he al no is called from life at thirty-two, he cannot ocqueatli to Ins widow oncdourlh the amount of him whose judgment taught him to insuio, although he has expended double the money in tho at tempt. No one will hesitate in pro nouncing which path it is most jiroji ta ble to follow. It is not only incumbent upon every man to provide for his family during his own life, but as a good citizen, as a worthy christian, and u man of feeling, to make such arrangements that it shall not become either, a burthen to his friends or to society after his own death. The means are within his reach to effect this great and noble object it is affor ded him by life iusurauce, a means of dispelling poverty and desolation scarce ly known to our fathers ; but which, iu the progress ut society, is introduced to us iu such a benevolent form, thut the American people are lapidly enlisting beneath its banners. Au affecting anecdote was narrated to us the other day in relation to this subject, which we will hear repeat. A o'ergyman was recently attacked by sickness, and soon was made aware that his malady was f a fatal character lie was only thirty. three, but had a wife And four children. lie had insured his life at au early period, and though siuce his marriage his means were uarrowed, lie contrived to discharge tho aunual premiums on his policy. The day be fore his dissolution he remarked to his wife, " Mary, it rejoices me that you aud my little cherubs will escape the penury with which my poor mother had to struggle as a widow. For this you are indebted to Life Insurance. I can not describo to you the grateful feelings I feel towards these institutions. The J?0000 which you will receive will be a fortune ia such able hands as yours. I wish my poor congregation could appre. t'iatc the principle upon which my wid ow will be made rich, for many of them ( re as needy us I, and might be bcuefit- d by my example." The pastor, who was s much belov ed, died, and we are told that nearly all 5:;s conuiVLMtioH insured the'r lives as a i lli'ilcto his memory, so iihic.1i did they i v"re his dy'ni;; vvoi js, and the course I out he recommended.

Knmm: A writer under the signature of "Acer" (Advocate Jan. 3d complains ot tho management ot public schools, because Qui many ol leni ot least,) there is an attempt to give " moral aud roligiom instruction. 1 his he reirards as eutirely outot place, objecting cen to the reading of the Hi- ble and the ottering ot praycl. ioi but that these things are well enough iu their place ; but hu is opposed to hav ing them iu the public schools, lie says " if wo must have moral instruction in our school, let it be entirely free from tho suspicion of sectarianism." Even moral instruction he would pre fer to exclude, npparently for tho rea son that something ho would call secta rian may creep in. iNow, Mr. Editor, it is tiuio that the public school is a secular institution : and it is proper that auy moral or relig ious instruction given therein should oc free from sectarianism, l$ut is there not reason to suspect that tho fear of sectarianism is only a pretence, to cover a real opposition to the Christian reli gion ? Tho Bible is received by all nhriRtinns as the word of God, and the morality there taught cannot bo obuox? ious to the charge ot sectarianism, un less th charge comes from those who either deny or dislike tho Christian re- ligion. We hope there are none in Elk couuty who thuy the christian religion, though we have too much evidence that there ore many who dislike it. liut if ltistVteit ought to bo believed, aud taught to our children, aud no man need fear iti influence. I do not propose to discus the ques tion of i idigious instruction iu the pub lie schools : but would suggest the iu ouirv whether nny better text book of morality can be found than the J$ible; and whether the religious instruction re- ported by our County Superintendent is any more than Moses required of the Israelites ? " These words which 1 com mand thee this day. shall be in thine heart, and thou shult teach them dili gently to thy children, and shalt tails of them when thou sittet in thy nousc, and when thou walkest by tho way, and when thou liest down, aud wheu thou risest un." Deut. G, G, 7. It does notse3iu to have occurred to your correspondent " Acar" that thero is a uiuerenoe oeiwcon sectarianism uuu Catholic Christianity: and that while the former has no right to enter our pub lie schools, the latter to a certain ex tent belongs there, and is essential to tho highest welfare of our youth, for time and for eternity. And it will be my endeavor in a series of brief arti cles, (if you can afford the space, and do not fear the charge ot " sectarianism, ) to set forth the leading doctrines of tho christian church catholic, ths.t those ig norant ol thcui may be enlightened - - J -II .1. .u ... i' that teaches these doctrines ought to bo shut out from our schools at least on the ground of icctariunism. And shall be my endeavor to manifest that degree ot candor which becomes a oath olic christian, who has no sectarian ends to promote, no sectarian prejudice to overcome. Ii any ol your readers shall at any time fai! to understand my state mcnts or to he convinced of their truth I wish them lo use perfect freedom in asking explanations of offering objections J. will try to observe the golucn rule.

Whit the Fourth of July is to tho American, Christinas to the English, and the opening of the lager beer season to the Germans, ht. Patrick s day is to the Irish. It is their day of days, when smouldering sparks of the nationality they are so proud of is blown into flame afresh, and devotion to tho "sweet little isle of ihosca"is sworn anew. No Irishmen but glories in the day, and rises to the full extent of his inches when lie thinks that some time it may be kept in tho ancient kingdom, as it never has been kept before with no Saxon official to intcrefero with the wearing of the green and the fr.'endly breaking of heads. Saint Patrick, the patron saint ot Ireland according to tho generally re ceived tradition, was born in Scotland, near tho mouth of tho Clyde, in the year 372, and died in county Down, in the old Kingdom of Ulster, about 4(34. When a boy he was captured by a band of Irish marauders, and carried with them to Ireland as a slave. Alter a captivity of six months ho was fortunate enough to escape, and made his way back to Scotland, only to be again made prisoner by the satna parties. Kscaping for the second time, he resolved to bo- come a missionary to the Irish, and after long preparation, was ordnmed in Scot, land, and afterward consecrated bishop. Having, says tho old record, visited Gaul, and perhaps Italy, he passed to his chosen field of labor, about 432, and preached the gospel with such extraordi nary effect that, although not absolutely the first to introduce Christianity into that country, he has received tho credit of its general conversion, lie baptised the kings of Dublin and Munster, nnd the seven sons of tho King of Con. naught, with tho greater part of their subjects, and before his death had converted almost the whole island to the faith. St. Bernard testifies that ho fixed his Metropolitan See at Armagh, and it appears that ho appointed other bishops, with whom he had councils to settle the discipline of tho church which he had planted. In his old age he wrote his "(.lonlession, tho authenti city of which, however, is doubted It maybe louna in bir James wares edition of the works of St Patrick(8 vo., London 1G58. ) Tho lloman Catholic Church keeps his festival on March 17th.

Wheeling lieyuter, March 13. The woolen manufacturers of Rhode Island have had two bites at the oho rry lately.

Un the way they met llammcll, who had a gun on his shoulder. He was ordered by the guard to lay down the gun, and on his refusal they fired on him. The ball struck him in tho breast to the left of the right nipple, and came out near tho shoudcr blade. Tho woun ded man died in three hours.
