terrified to proceed - in removing. the traces
of the deed, and in the morning, to their hoe

turned, and -the news of ,the great , rob ert
spread like wildfire through the town: What
was-tnore,natural than that the nedirest:ho*
. ea would bd searched I The w ool-spidner'it
was the very-next. and the board's were stilt
wet with blood, and the corporal's corpselay
in thebellar. This must be prevented, and
suspicion cast on some one, till they 'found
tine to remove the traces.'
. The wool-spinner's wife had the honor of
~ devising the devilish scheme, which seemed
to 'save them. The Blue Dragoon might be
- the cuiprit,for he had:so eftediseeretly elim,b
-,6d over their hedge.. At the same time be
h a d flirgOtten a handkerchief 'in-ter home;
long before, 'which she had not returned him.
Both circumstances tallied. The handker
-ale( might' be laid somewhere hi the neigh,
hoilioed, and suspiekm would arise 'apontane
,ously. The baker's inventive talent came to ,
'' the woman's aid, and one idea. produced the
-other. One„sigtt was not sufficient; a - see,
„bid must betray the' dragoon's presence. in
;.the louse. On a market-day the 'baker had
: completed a bargain with a-peasant just be
' fore the Blue ,Dragoon's house. Ile had to
settle with the peasant, and asked, the
lord fora plebe of paper. The latter. gave
:hirnan old declaration to, wntc his accounts
on theback of it. This. paper the baker still
_had in his . peckethook. - His name, howev
erovas on the. back, and" the account and
~,his name were burned off. The baker fol.
_lowed the police into the heuse, threw. tins
.paper. into a. corner, and then was 'the first to
piek lit• bp‘and hapd it to' the oilmen. They
. had, howevek acted too cleverly, and their .
.extreme caution brought about the discove
". ..ry, as is so frequently the case with critui
nals. Had they let the wool-spinner's wife
write the letter to the burgomaster, as she
..offered—she went afterwards to. Rotterdam
.ito oast n—suspicion would hardly have been '
:aroused against them. The deaf and dumb
boy betrayed them, and their fear soon drew
.the;most ample confession from thein. On

, . ,plices were hanged; the game Elite befell the

Prof. Richardson said a young teacher la
bored under great difficulty on fiiit 'going in- .
to sehool from not having very clear ideas of
Ithe proper management:and government ofs
I school: . ..' - - ' . 1 ' - -
Every teacher should understand the phys.
leal and moral constitution of the pupil, as.
well as the intellectual, and the -best filode of
edueating.tbem; and they would thereby six
ceed much better in government. 1 . -' ' -
I ' No 'scholar could be expected , to sit upon'
l a bench which has no back, and where his feet- -
cannot reach the floor, without feeling an tin- ~
easiness which is almost sure to esss.iftst , - iv
self in, mischief and disobedioce. . - •
- S. 'W .
. Tewksbury said he liked moral sua
sion much better than _legal restraint—teacb
ers should always be - plelistint 7 :-should gain
the esteem of their pupils—vMuld use his in
fluence to have a refractory pupil expelled
from school.., - I '• -
Z. E. Loomis said he had had-butlittle ex.
1 perience in te.achingj and had - hardly formed
i , any definite opinion in regard to government.' -
Said he had taught in Illinois, but that the
school system of that:State was not equal to
that of Pa. ' • -. ' -
JAVoix l said he preferred moral su4on to *
anything else as lOng as, it.did good - , ea& then
tsjectnielit from the - school rather than 'a re
sort to corporal punishment. That the , best
mode Of instruction was that which would in-
terest _the pupil most. .3. F. Tewksbury .
said that as mind: (=trolled 'all the move;
meats of the physical system, and as • : it-was.
necessary to
, govern". the Mind in order'to .
Control the phytal. actions, and as mind -
could - only be act upon and governed by •
mind, therefore all governments, in the true
and - most exalted sense,otthe term, could be
' nothing mere thin the control whith superior
exercises over inferior, mind. :If a scholar is
refractory,. the cause is-to be founifin his or.
gnnization; either natural or cult'vated, and is
no more snseeptiveof being whipped out, than
kindness and benevolence is of•being whipped
into him. ! Like 'begets like: We should be
