in response to the solicitations of the
County • Superintendent and many
other members of the Teacher's' As
sqciation, who were present at our
late meeting in Herrick, I transmit
you a transcript of notes, taken in
long-band of Mr. LANDoN's address
on the occasion. It real:y seems too
bad to tame down and mutilate a
speech in this way, but many of the
ideas are original, and
_even in their
logical nakedness cloguent, and hence

worthy of Perpetuation by tho press
I give yen a mere epaciation of the
address, but your Aadeis are suffi
ciently acquaintea fivith Mr. L.'s
spefehes, to imagine the proper rhe
torical bloom.
After a few preliminary remarks
not of public intek.esl, the lecturer
t . .
proceeded substantndly as.follOws :

the relation, to whatever is desirable,

have great things for the laborious;"
and the master of eloquence being
asked what were t her three ' principal
elements - of , oratory, replied : " Ac

question differently. and ask what
are the 'elements: of great success?
Effotlf ! t:trort ! Eirorr ! • He who

'to accomplish your objects. Culture
should not be confined to any class

grades, conditions and colors have a
right to, and should be eiincat:ol.
The lower the individual, the taici
need of these elevating influences. In
Pennsylvania or in South Carolina,
wherever we find= the ignorant and
degraded, there is our field of labor.
This is the broad, idea upon which
rests the fabric of our government:
the education of the people, the secu
rity'of the nation. Human scultnre
is noinzcornruandin,g more attention
than in anv other' age of the world.
Greater eff Its are being made to'
make it thorough and universal. The•
best minds of onr:times are enlisted
in its cause, and the facilities for its
general diffusion are great and mul
tiplied. What is the grand object of
human culture ? Not the mere end
of getting a living with less labor,
but the elevation of every individnid
to complete manhood or womanhood.
It is a great thing to be a true man
or , woman. • It is'-the coronet of all
human aspiration:. Hence we would
have nen ,Cultivated simply because
they .are men. We should make our
information as extensive as possible,
.and gather it froth all sources, re
, teembering that all we learn or can
I learn, may some day come into ser
vice. There is nothing that man is'
called npotii to do, but that may be
made the means of - education. The
carpenter may edgcate hirusell by of '
forts to make each item Of work more
perfect than its predecessor ; the
farmer by improving his. farm and

character. .The man who aims to ex
-1 cel can educate himself laying stone
wall or ',tilling Pine stumps. The
lady who aspires to cif tune, can con
summate her wishes by waking good
batter or bread, or by economy in
house keeping. All the skill you c in
acquire in yonr work, all the mental
culture you may attain, will. s9me
lime come into reqnisition. ' Like an,
odd quarter, each item of knowledgtt
may serve to make mental change
Zvi h in after, years. Nothing that
we learn is superfluous, but all know
ledigti,should be acquired with a vete
to the proper influence upon character
I make this declaration : The atter
character of every individual is to a
very great extent the result of early
surroundings. This may be modified,
it is true, by his own free volition
and efforts, but rad cal changes sel
dom occur.- Take the infant.. Sup
ply its physical wants, and care for
it, in all other respects, but never let
it bear the sound of the human voice,
and when that child attains the age
of twenty-one, what will it be? Sim.'
ply an idiot—so many pounds of
flesh and blood-no more intelligent
than whale-blubber. Take the mune
child and teach it ; open to it- th ,
door to intelligence and moral eni
ture, and abut out from it all evil
communications ' and wben it attabs
its majority, what will it be? The
embodiment of intelligence and good
ness. Let the c.bild be brought up
under Catholic influences, and -be
will almost inyarieebly cling to the
Church o Rome ;, let him be sur
rounded by . the institutions, and
trained by Protestant .direction, and
he will seldom wander from his early
impressions; let him be brought tip
in the bar-room, and if he, don't
ewe ar he will be a mental stint:only.
Our subject this evening is culture.
We shall treat it under two heads--z
Child-Culture and Self-Culture. -•
The mathematical student has this
problem fur solwion : Given the two
sides and included angle of a triangle
to find the other side and angles.
An application of the proper ge.omet
iical principles will instro him the
correct rcsnit. So the parent. has
given him 10 pounds of flesh and
blood, cartilage and brain to find the
fully developed wan or woman. If
there is any problem in the cotepass
of- human .ic:4ponsibility that de
mands skill, it is this. Out of this
tangled skein, of stu‘ceptibilitics. we
are called upon to build up a man or
woman sytometirical in mind, body
and character. We, may Oink it dif
ficult to build the ship, bat what is
that compared to educating a • child
to a .proper , manhood or wo;uanhood?
Hoed shall we aceoluplish this cotu-
pies and difficult _work ? First, we
must study careful y the child's dis
position. No two children have ex
actly the same temperament.' Hence,
the same treatment will not knit all

With some a frown, *ith others a
smile, is the power to incite the
proper effort. Kindness gives wings
to feet to fly up the shinteg; hilt of
duty.. We must adapt ourselves to
all natures, surrounding children at
home with gracious and congenial
influences. Kindness moriii suision,
is the key to success in home govern
ment. Scolded and puui,hed at home
by father and mother, we cannot ex
pect the child to attain a symmetri
cal o.rowth. You might as well ex
pect flowers to gro.v in the sands of
Sahara, or auiong the icebergs of the
Poles. pointing out error,'
we should direct in the right way.
Never whip or punish children fur
making mistakes., If your little child
is led into - telling a lie, don't make
him a consummate liar by the use
of a hickory. When we suspect chil-
dren's veracity, and threaten, we are
nt•iug the very means to teach them
*to . prevaricate Don't' charge chil
dren with falsehood. ; They make
blunders and distort facts, but don't
know what lying is, or how to he,
until you teach, them. Surround them
at home with the gracious influ..neti;
of_ trash, let them grow up under the
mother's eve and lore, and they will
he flowers pure enough to adorn the
breast of Deity. When they attain
the age of twenty-one and are ieady
to enter upon the duties of life, they
will start wore half 'way to Heayen.
Take the opposite course at home,
and it is a marvel if at twenty , the
child does not look at you throngh
the grates. Pot your cbtldren to
school under a teacher with heart
and brain,, and let the associations
and surroundings be beautiful; pore,
and gentle. It is no wonder that our
children sometimes "raise thunder."
,The appointments of our school
rooms are not calculated to interest
them. The school-room, like the
theatre, should be made attractive.
Don't whip and• cudgel for trivial . l
causes. but weed out bad habits by

around your child's naked soul. Put
,into your children's hands proper
arid• interesting reading. The r secret
of suttees is to awaken interest—not
only in home . goverritneat but - in
school government. Parents can tell
the - successful school from the nn
successful, without visiting it.. They
merely have to feel the mental pulse
of their children when they come
home from school at night. If rim
child's mental pulse beats strong
and quick, yOur nimbi is a success ;
if it is sluggish and weak, your school
is a fizzle. Don't punish the child
for negligemw,. but show him the
benefits and necessity of carefulness.
Illustrate - day by day by your oan
example before the child the charac
teristies you wish him to posse-s.
The child's clia_racter is nothing but
the impress 0,1 your own. As Son
can see your own picture reflected
in the camera, so you can -beh6ld
your own charaeter reflected in that
of the-child. Teach your child by
your example, industry, vetacity,
magnanimity, self-control, justice,
and respect for humanity though
poor and degraded,
.and 'they will
find a lodgment in his heart and
blossom forth in, his actions.
In our moral instructions of tilt
young, we should no longer commit
the , egregious blunder of impressing
upon them the idea that to be virtu=
ous or religious, man must - make sacri
fices.. This is
. the general tenor of
nine sermons out of ten, and yit it
radically shortsighted and wrong.
The child'sliould never think that it
must make a great sacrifice to be
good, when the facts are that, man
only wakes sacrifices when he cm
braces - wicfcstiness and sin. - "The
ways of wisiThin are ways of pleasant
ries% and all her paths are - peace."
Don't, tell my child that to' be good.

don't like the custom of fixing for

Ina not arbitrarily to Beale for the
