Man becomes degra ded in proportion as he loses the right of self government. Every effort might therefore ! and the great bulwark of seen.it is to he , found m ediicution-t.ie culture of the heart. : and tlie bend—the diflusion ot knowledge,. piety and morality. A \ irtuousaml enlight ened man can never submit to degredation; ' and avirtuousaml enlighted people will never j breathe in the atmosphere of slavery. Up- ! on education we must therefore rely for the I ouritv, preservation, and tlie perpetuation, of republican government, in this sacred cause we cannot exercise too much liberality, It is identified with our best interests in this world,and with our best destinies in the world tocome. Much indeed has been done anti we I have only to cast our eyes o' ei tlie state, nnd rejoice in the harvest which it lias alrea- ! dy yielded.

Ten thimsand three ; i, mu i ra i and eighty-three have been instruct- ! cd in the free and'ciiarity schools in the city of New-York; a number by no means pro portioned to the wants of its population, The students in the incorporated academies amount to about 2,083, in the colleges to 75.5. The fund for the common schools may he stated at upwards of <1,1 30,000; and its an j nual income at yja,0(K':to winch may be ad j ded the interest on tlie future sales of land and , : o.i tlie disposal of escheated property, the j proceeds of which latter item may be added ' to tlie capital. However imposing this fund may appear, it is sufficiently obvious tiiat it ought to be argunientcd. This stale is capable of sup porting fourteen millions of inhabitants. This appropriation will therefore soon be j f ulln( ] f ar behind tlie progress of population j a nd the requisition for instruction. j Deeply impressed witli the mom entions nature of this department of our social policy 1 to the cardinal interests of thc state, I cannot u ithhold one important fact derived from . llis j expérience.
