An Historical Incident.

to an incident in the - history of Eng
land which is but little known, and
which you will not find in books, bu
one which nevertheless had a Brea
effect on her destinies
About the beginning of this cen.
Wry, while the revolutionary wars
were raging, communication in ci
pher was naturally very prevalent :
and ingenuity was taxed to the ut
most on one hand to invent, and on
the other to detect, the medium used
in secret correspondence. , As a rule,
the decipherer had beaten the cipher,
and do known method was secure -of
detection. If conventional signs
were merely used, the recurrence of
the different symbols gave a key easi
ly followed out. Some ingenious
spirits Corresponded by reference to
the' pages and lines of particular pdi-
Aions of -.bcioks—methods, although
they might preserve the secret, 'dii-,
dosed' what was often quite as . dan-'
prow : there was a secret. lam
about'to tell you of a plan which for i
a long time was not only undetected,
but unsuspected. .
It - we& atthat time when the first
Napoleon had assembled 'his fleets
and transports at Brest,' with the os

- My uncle, Sir George Trevor, was,
as ell the world then knew, high in
the : Admiralty—and as it was from
shim that I—heard this anecdote, its
•xeincitymy be depended on.
The dispatches to and from the Ad
miralty were the subject of the grav
est vigilance, and the most stringent
regulations. The clerks were not
permitted to send or receive letters
, which were not first submitted to the
1 chief clerk ; and it w ' believed that
letters addressed eve toprivate resi
dences were frequentl opened at the
At the time I speak 'of, the chief
clerk was an elderly man of the name
of Parker—a wizened, wiry, dapper
individual, so imbued with the offi
cial tincture of Whitehall that it had .
become second nature to him. He
lived and breathed And thought and
slept solely for the Admiralty, and
knew no other pleasure or care. He
was withal a getual i ruid kindly soul,
keen and energetic 'in the affairs of
his office, and ~' all others a mere

" What is wrong?"
" Theietteralare wrong. There• is

for a long time, now I am quite sure;

Parker went on to explain that he
had for , some time suspected that
some one in the office communicated
their private information and dia.
patches outside. He had redoubled
his precautions • but, more than ever
confirmed in hi s suspicions, wits en

marks which bunglers use to guide
them in writing the words were en

deception is effected is this : The cor

a sheet of paper and cut holes in it,

exactly correspond. They each take
one half sheet, and when the letter is
to be written, the writer so arranges

' The Walks:dual education of man
being first in order, must first, receive
a small share of our time and attah
tion. If we were capable of thinking
correctly on this subject,' we should
find -without doubt a wide range for
our thoughts in this part alone: But
as we are not expected to exhaust
either of the subjects above mention
ed, we shall hire to be brref.
The education of our intellectual
faculties is certainly , of great interest
to students and should receive much
r ',l".A., i , ./
' * '
more attention from all mankind. I
is evident that by educating the in
tellect, as a first result •we make it
stronger, more elastic, and more ca
pable of receiving impressions from
the external world and the internal
world: of thought within us. ,
By cultivating the intellect we may
make rapid progress toward that-per
fection and strength of mind which.
so much distinguishes man from the
lower animal creation.
• But the intellectual power of great
men is not usually acquired without
great labor and exertion Of-mind, arid
also that men as a rule do not achieve
their greatest intellectual victories
until they have attained coraiderallle
age, or it may be termi4d more prop
erly, experience. This wonderful
mental foresight, strength and dis-
erimination of mind is often the re-
.suit of long years of study and appli
cation. This is a reason why we
have not more men and women of
.strong _ intellectual calibre. Young
persons who are but just at the start
ing point of an education, are too apt
to expect too soon the reward of study
and discipline of the mind. It re
quires patience and time to bring
about great results in theintellectual
as well as in the physical morld.
Therefore we should:nol be daunted
or discouraged if we do not at once
" pluck the golden apples" or acquit
ourselves as being full grown in the
region of intellect.
Let us think that what has been ,
done may be done again by those
who follow after the great lights of
east ages. It should be a prominent
idea to hold on to what we have learn
ed, and making energy our rule of
adtion, keep on making new 'attain
ments in the cause of an intellectual
education in, all the days we may
hope of a long future.
• While eager in our efforts for the
glories of an intellectual education,
we should not forget. that there are
other faculties of the mind - which
should not be neglected.' These are
nothing less than those of. our moral
or spiritual natures. We are prone
to forget the fact that we are observ
ed by Him who is above - all, and that
we are held responsible for -all our
actions. This but reminds us that,
we should live as seeing Min who is
invisible and from Wheat all power,
goodness, mercy and truth originates:
Last, and perhaps not least, in im
portance to many of us, is the educa
tion of our physical nature, -viz : The
sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell,
and the organs of locomotion which
are called muscles, with the general
framework of the body. • However
important and desirable.. it. may be
for us to study and toil in the " mines
of knowledge,"we may do so at the
expense of al the pleasures of a phy- ..
sisal existence. There ere but few
that need to restrain their ambition
for devouring the contents: of books,
In such cases =Aeration and pru
dence should be consulted lest we en
gage too earnestly in the strife for
larger draughts from the fountain of
never failing wisdom. The maxim—
a sound mind in a healthy body—has
not lost its force as a • " twice told
tale." After all that can be said or
written under those heads, taken se!),
arately, do not go to make up any
thing but a part of that being God
made of the " dust f the earth."
But, when these three e united, the
intellectual, moral an .physical, in
all their beauteous an sublime pro
portions, we have tha - wonderful, in
telligent and godlikebeing called by
the Creator man.

from the Yoonited States to Cnby, ez
they did across the Detroit river.
Then agin, ef Canady is annexed,
where kin gentlemen in Noo York
who combine burglary with politics,
find refuge 'after- the venchers they

The intense burnin desire nv the

wich is the precise article 113% Demoe

. • There is but one hope for Ireland,
and that is emigrashen. Let the Fe

money on raids, build ships and give
all their countrymen-free passage to
this country. Let them wich desires
to waitat hotels and black boots and
sich, settle in Noo York, and them
wich is-agricultoortilly disposed, come
here to Delaware: Let em abandon
Ireland forever, and erect their shan
ties in.' this new world, where they
are not only ez good ez natives, but
a. good deakhetter.

Why I hev seen em git offli ship the

coed they git so high a price for the

We want the agrieultoor i al portion
uv em here in Delaware to offset the

emigrashen kin we retain control nv

niggers. The cusses are learning to

We havo no free skools to bother em,

SUGGESTIONS TO PARENTS. •
1. Do not permit your rhilaren t o.
come; late to school. Tardiness and
absence ere destructive to the best
interests of a school, collectively . , and,f
of its pupils, individually. The school
is constantly interrupted and ember
assed by, the intrusion of delinquents
at unseasonable hours, its exercises ,
are disturbed, its order is broken and
the burdens of its teacher' ate greatly
increased. The pupil 'is demoralized,
his interest is diminished, an 4 his
habits are rendered irregular.. ' The
child who is allowed to be habitually .
late at school, inevitably becomes the
adult who fails to pay his notes and'
to meet his engagements generally.
Such children and such men and wo
men ate usually too late for the cars,
too late at church; And by force ' of
the same habit it will be strange If
they are not too late for II the day of
death. • ITO element in a k4 - i7re char
acter ought to be more cArefully cul
tivated than a sacred regatd for meet
ing his engagements promptly and
fully. Will you aid us nillus work,
by doing your share to - secure 'the
prompt attendance of your children -
at school ?
2. Encourage, and if need be, -re
quire your children to devote a regu
lar portion of their time to a prepara
tion of their lessons and such other
school work asumy be assigned them
out of school hours. It is obvious
that without such steady Co-operation
by the parent, the teacher, will be
poWerless and his efforts to advance
your children will be to a great ex
tent in vain., It is of the first impor
tance that your chiblku should feel
that they are. response both to the
parent and teachet ; otherwise they
will not put forth that full measure
/ of effort which alone can insure ordc
cess. Every child of sufficient age
to study profitably out of School will
have his work assigned. ' Will yon
aid us -in the effort to secure his at
tention to it? •
8. Visit the school often and con-.
fer with, the teacher. Give a reason- -
able amount of attention to, the school
relations of your children. By per
sonal inspection assure yourselves
that the teachers of your children are.:
faithful to their trust.' See that they
understand your children :and that _
you understand both. Be net satis
fied with f..r parte complaints, but lis
ten to the teacher as well as to your
child before you form an opinion. or
pass a judgment.
4. Finally, remember that without
the restraints of order and discipline,
no good school can exist, and hence,
no pupils can be properly instructed
and trained. Obedience next to
love, the first law of childhood.. There
must be prompt obedience and a
cheerful acquiescence in all just mea-
sures for securing good order.—Pmf.

A gentleman ordered a suit of
clothes from , a tailor, and specially
enjoined him that they must be glade
by the next Tuesday, and must be
made in the finest style, and that-un

to a certainty beyond a pendventure

fully that. they would be finished.

THE Lrrrix Osis.—Do you ever
think what a work a child does in ;a
day? How, from sunrise to sunset,
the dear little feet patter around—to
us—so aimlessly ; olimbing up . hero,
kneeling down there, rimming to an
other place, but never still, twisting
:and turning, rolling and reaching and s ,
doubling, as if testing every bone and
muscle for their future uses. It is
very curious to watch it. One - who
does so may well and easily under
stand the deep breathing of the little
sleeper, as with one , arm tossed over;
its curly head it prepares for next'
day's gymnastic& A busy creature
is a little child.
