"iVe read an article a few days ago
in relation to defects in our present
system of education, one of which was
that we need more of practical train
ing in our schools than now exists.
This is a truth that experience is prov
ing more and more every day. Our
schools turn outvoting men and women
by the hundreds, all of whom have
what is called a good education fitted,
as some say, for the duties of life, but
the truth is thev do not know how to
apply it. As soon as a young man
leaves school and has acquired a thor
ough knowledge of the different
branches taught, he begins to stick up
his nose to smell out what profession
he will pursue whether law? medi
cine or divinity when, in fact he is
not fit for either. That is the reason
why the country is filled with quacks
in all the professions. They mistook
their calling, and went so far astray in
their choice that, unable to provide
for themselves, they go back to their
parents fit for nothing at all. Had
such young men been properly taught
in school, and shrwn how to apply
their education; they would have been
useful members of the community, if
not in the several professions, in some
It is a crying shame that so many
of our young men are indisposed to
learn a trade. A false education has
taught them to believe that it is dis
honest to be a mechanic, or at least,
that it is not high-toned. What con
summate folly ! A thorough mechanic
is as far above a bungling lawyer, a
qiack doctor, or illiterate preacher, as
the eminent statesman is above the
brawling pot-house politician. There
is many a young man who, had he ap
plied his education to the development
of mechanical genius, insteid of the
mastery of legal subtleties, would have
attained an eminence among his fellow-men
..far above the foolish pride
that scorned his pursuit. The youth
of this country have been put upon
the wrong track. They have been
taught to love too much that bastard
aristocracy which iuvitts poverty aud
disgrace, and the sooner our schools of
learning take in hand to instruct to in
struct pupils how to apply the educa-J
tion they are acquiring, and disabuse
the miud as to the character of me
chanical pursuits, the sooner will the
evil be corrected.
We know of a gentleman, who long
served in Congress, and is eminent as
a lawyer, when his son, having fin
ished his collegiate education, asked
him what he should do, replied :
"My son, now go into a machine
shop and. learn to be a machinist, and
then you will be fitted for the duties
The advice was followed and that
young man is next to a railroad presi
dent, and his mechanical genius, fully
developed as it was during the time he
served his apprenticeship, now is the
strong power that makes him "master
of the situation." That is what we
call applyiag education to a practical
purpose.' Education assisted in de
deajiaf a asechanical genius that, had
the advice beta followed, wonld have
to him by his Creator in

For sornc time past this famous peal
of hells one of the finest, if not the
finest, in the city, of London, hai
heen undergoing examination in the
public interest, and before long the
familiar chimes which captivated or
consoled a Whittinirton, and have
since ehnrnied many more from time
immemorial, will ring out as before.
The Church of St. Mary-Ie-Bow,
which, if not originally a Roman
temple, as generally believed was one
ot the earliest churches built by our
Norman conquerors, has been destroy
ed more than once by storm and fire.
It was at one time garrisoned and
besieged, aud was afterward the scene
of an assassination. It was first men
tioned as a Christian church in the
reign of William the Conpueror.
Stow says it was the first in the city
built on arches of stone, and that it
was, therefore, called St. Mary de
Arcuhus, or the Bow, although he
elsewhere says, hut with less apparent
possibility, that it took its name from
certain stone arches supporting a
lantern on the top of the tower. By
the way, the Court of Arches was
formerly held in this church, aud de
rived its name from that circumstance.
During the reign of Wiliiam Rufus,
the roof of the church was blown off
by the wind, and four of the rafters
were driven into the ground with such
violence, that, although they were
each 2G feet long, little more than
four feet of their length was visible,
the ground in the neighborhood being
then a mere feu. About one hundred
years after this event a tumult of a
serious nature occurred in the city,
which led to the assault upon the
church before alluded to. The ring
leader was William Fitz Osbert, sur
named Longbeard, who was almost
worshiped by the lower order on ac
count of his exertions as a professed
advocate of the poor against the op
pressions of the rich. An attempt
leing made to seize him, he took
refuge in Bow steeple, together with
various followers, and being well pro
vided with ammunition and provisions,
was able for a long time to defy the
authorities. In order to drive him
out the steeple was fired. This had
the desired effect, the rioters were
made prisoners, and after a hasty trial,
were hanged in the Elms in Sraithfield
at that time the usual place of execu
tion. It appeared that Fitz Osbert did
not lose his reputation among the
people with his life, for it is said that
after his death, vast numbers of per
sons resorted to Smithfield, expecting

We must exclaim, with all your fault,
what a noble, self-sacrificing woman you

Another one is gone, another of the fair
ones of Varrenburg has passed away. No
more is she to lie found with brothers and
sisters, gathered under the parental roof, or
in the social circle, enlivening it with her
bright, happy presence. She has gone
gone to cheer and make glad the heart and .
home of one who found that life, without
this fair one to share his j--y and to cheer
and comfort his heart in times of adversi
ties and trials, would, indeed, lie desolate
and dreary. For a time thi young man
hid hl-s feelings don deep in the retired
receft-es of his own bosom ; but, ever ami
anon, there would an?e hetore bis vision a
sweet face a face so lovely, pure and sweet
as to engrave its image upon his heart so
indriib.y that Time could not efface it.
And though separated from the object of his
affections by hundreds of miles he resolved
that win her he must ; we. therefore, tind
him wend.ng his way from the State of
tsuckeyes to the Quarry City of Aestern

the hands of her whom he so dearly loved.

The bride was dressed in a beautiful suit
of ahes of rost-K gro grain silk, trimmed
with black lace, and had her.hair dressed
with a beautiful wreath of flower.
Without particularizing nulSce it to say
that all the ladies very dressed very becotu

who were judges of good victuals. The fair

it seems egotism to attempt a description of

warrant at the central station had it
served upon the runaways at the house

after a talking from her mother and
relatives consented to a compromise
by which she is to remain in this city
