limeade of Flogging
Thii maker Of a grammar-school ofi
burgh in the central district of Scotlaticl.
about seventy years ago, was a worthy"
TrOja4 of the name of . Hacket, a com

stories! which were ;told of this man's

severity, or believe that such merciless
punishment could have been alloWed to
takf place , in a country -ii ) c) far civilized,
as burs then was. ' Heavy and repeat
ed application's of a striped thong, call

of a table, and thrash as long as he could
hold with one hand and lay on with the
other , s! Horsing was one of his highest
indulgences of luxuries, and he had an
ingenious. mode of torture peculiar to
himself, by causing the boy to stride be-
Wen two distant boafds, while he en- .
deavdred to excire the thifiking faculties
by bringing a force to bear frogs behind.
Thomas Lord Erksine and his broth
er Renry were brought up at his schmol,
and remembered - Racket's severity
throtigh life, coMplainiiig particularly
that it was all one whether you were a
dullor bright boy, for ,if the' fornier.you
were thrashed for yonr own proper de
merits., and if you were bright, you had
a monitorial charge aligned to you over
the rest,'.and suffered for all' the short
comin of your inferiors. We wonder
at this now; but the wonder is very su
perfluous. The w hole system was bas
ed on a prevalent notion that severity to•
children was salutary and benficial, nay,
indispensable, and that, if yon at all lov
ed your son or pupil, it was - your first
and iniist solemn duty towards him to
give him a sound strappation on all pos
sibhi occasions. ; Flogging was simply
one of the bigotries of our grandfathers..
/*angst Racket's pupils was a boy
whd had come from a distance, and was
boaded with' a family in town. His
name for the present s Anderson. This
youth, placed far -from his friends, felt
the !ruthless severity of Hacker very
bitterly, and, as he was by n,o means a
genius, he .Was both well stfapped him
self, and prdbably the Cause , of much
strapping in others. Naturally of a re
served and reflecting character, he said
little of his sufferings to any of his com
panions ; but the stripes sunk into, his
very soul, and, secretly writhing under
a' sense of the injustice' and indignity
with which he was treated, he conceiv
ed -the most deadly sentiments of re
vengeaagainst his master. To get these
wreaked out in present circudistancewas
impossible .; but he determined to take
the first opportunity that ()tented, and
in tithe mean.trine to nurse his wrath, so
that time should not interfere in favor

serve the utmost vengeance that could:be
A-Anderson. like "so'many other.Scot
tikh youth, was draughted off at an early
age to India, where he served for twen
ty-five years, during whiCh he never
once was able to revisit hik native
shores.—Having now attained 4com-
Petency, and settled his affairs, he re
lurned to , Scotland, in order to spend
there the-remainder of his , life. It will
scarcely be believed that he still cher
his? scheme of vengance against
!Racket Racket; but the fact is that he did. so t
and this indeed is what gives any value
to the anecdote we ,are relating—it is
curious only as a genuine instance of a
feeling persevered in much beyond the
term usually assigned to human feelings.
He came home—he purchased a short
but effective whip--lielourneyed to the
tpwn.where he had been educated, and,
establishing himself at the inn, sent a
polite message to Racket (who was still
in the vigor of life, though retired froni
active duty,) inviting hini to dine that
afternoon with a gentleman who bad
once been his pupil. All seemed now
in train for a retributory visitation up
on the epiderm of the old gentleman;

key into his picket. Then, taking
down a whip from the mantle-piece, .
this gentleman came sternly up to the
venerable school -master, aneasked if
he' had any recollection of him. allo,"
said - the teacher. •i• Then, sir, I shall_
insure that you remember me forever
after. Do you recollect a boy at your
school twenty-five years ago, of\the
name of, Walter Anderson ?" "I dare
say I do.?' u Then, sir, I am that
Walter . Anderson. I have now come
to punish you for the many unmerited,
thrashings which you gave me at
school. They Were .savage, sir,- and
Only something of the same kind cant
expiate them. All thd time I was in
India, I never allowed this design _ to
lie dormant for a moment, and now the
time kir, its execution Strip,

sir, this • motoent, and let, me do full
justice.upon you- Resistance is alto-,
gether in vain, for the people here are
all in my pay. Entreaty is ; equally
vain, for nothing on earth could induce
me to let you escape."
Ilecket, it may well be believed, was
in a dreadful panic, for he saw that he
was in the hands of a man not to be tri
fled with. He was, however, shrewd
in human nature,. and possessed plenty
of presence of mind. Well, well,"
said he; thisa a bad business ; but I
suppose it is true that I was rather se
vere long ago stith my , boys, and so
must just submit. I see, however, that
preparations have been made for din
ner, and as I believe you to be a gentle
man, I cannot suppose that you invited
me here to that meal without intending
to give ;t me. Now, if it is the same
thing to you, I should much preler hav
ing dinner first; and the licking after

The man of vengeance was taken by
surprise, and assethed, though inward
ly resolving - that nothing should in the
long iun..baulk him of his purpose.—
They sat down, and the dinner and
.wine proved excellent. Hacket began
to talk-of old times, and of \ \ miler boys
who had been fellow pupils with his
host; also of many spats and frolics
in which Anderson, amongst others,
had indulged. He told—what he had.
learned of the subsequent fortunes of
many of these youths, and gradually
engaged Anderson in a relation of his
own history. The whole bearing of
the old man was so 'cheerful, so sympa
thising, and so entertaining, that Ander
son, like the gloomy sultan, felt him

The utility of printing, as far as re
gards the progress of truth, is counter
acted, by the great expense Of setting ;
type; for as all, books sell best which;
flatter.prevailing opinions and support
vested interests, and as they are' printed;
chiefly at the risk ofiraders, .who print
for sale and profit, so few (very few)
printed hooks contain the whole truth,
and nothing but , the truth.
Before the art of printing, books
were of incredible price. From. the Oth
to th e 13th century many bishops could
not- read,.and Kings were scarcely able
to sign their names ; and hence the use
of seal and sealing. In the year 1471,
when Louis XI. borrowed the worki of
Rasis the Arabian physician. from, the
faculty of medicine in Paris, he not on
ly deposited in pledge a considerable ]
quantity of-plate, but was obliged to
procure a nobleman ] to join with, him
as security in deed, binding himielf
under greatforfeiture to restore t. When
'any person made a presentof a book to
a church or a monastery, in whichwere
the only libraries during several ages, it
was deenied a donative . of such value ] ,
that he offered it. on the altar, pro rent
edia animce euw, in ordir to obtain the
forgiveness of his sins.: These were
the ages in which superstition, witch
craft and priestcraft obtained so univer
sal an ascendency. From 500 to 1200
all learning was in the hands' of - the
Arabs, Sarasnec and Chinese. It is
supposed by many that the art of print
ing originated it? China, where it was
practised before , it was !known in Eu
rope. The Romans had the possession
of the art long before they were
scions of the rich- possession. , And it
is a curious fact, that-a, Well known Ital
ian, to whom learning ]owes ac
tualiy published a treatise on the art of
reading a printed book, which Was ded
icated to the higher and more jenlight
ened class of society. Copying was
in ancient Greece and Rome, a product
tive employment, b l ut it afterwards fell'
into4he bands of monks, who copied
chiefly theolog,y.. A good cotiy of the
bible, on Vellum employed two years; .
and the works of either of the Fathers
still more time. Jerome states, that he
had ruined himself by buying a copy of
the works of Origen.
Books were originally boards, or the
inner bark of trees. the word being de-'
rived from Bench a Beech tree. The'
Horn-Book, now used in nurseries, is ,
a primative, book. Bark is still used
by some nations'; skins are also used,
for which parchment was substituted.—
Papyrus an Egyptian plant, was adopt
ed in that country, and an article of
commerce, thin plates of brass. were
also used ford the,church service'. The
Papyrus and' parchment books Were
commonly rolled on round sticks, with
a ball at each end, and the composition
begat at the cenlre, the other fold being
its termination ] ; these were called vol.
nines.' The ouisides inscribed just as
we now letter books.

writings are chiefly on leaves. There
are several copies of Bibter written on
palm leaves, still preserved in 'various'
collections .in Europe.. . The ancients
doubtless. wrote on any . ' leaves they
found 'adaptekl to the purpose.'
