"The human mind is as ground; which is such as it is
made by cultivation.'
I.lerbert Spencer says, 'The suppress
ion of every error is commonly followed
by, a temporary ascendency of the con
trary one; -and it so happened, that after
the ages. when physical deyelopeinent
alone was, -alined at, (there came an age
when the culture of the mind was the, sole
solicitude; * * and the getting of knowl
edge the one thing needful." -
The truth of the above is evident to
every thinking observer; and it needs no
argument to prove- that. the latter is. the
age in which we now live. That the '.ed
ueatien of. the intellect is of great impOr
tance cannot be denied.:.itis 'when eon
ducted without regard. tOlthe -sentiments
and affections in man's nature that it con
tributes to the sours perverseness. While
those philosophers :and philanthropists
'who have labored so assiduously in the
;cause of education, haVe in latter years ac
jeomplished results which entitle them to''
be regarded as benefactors of their race,
their ideas of education seem to have - been
deficient in sonie_particulars, among which
is tHe'affeciionel nature in - man. This.has
been left-eornparatiVely without any spe
cific culture or direction, to remain, tar
ren Or to develope under incidental and
miscellaneous influences, and to blind 49-
pulse while the treat and. almost only
object has been the mere education of' the
intellect, as if this were almost the Only
good to be obtained: 'ldeality, Venera
tion, friendship, fraternal and filial airee
tion receive but a small share of attention
compared with the all-absorbing question
of "disciplining the intellect."' Yet 'this
comparatively neglected 'department of
the_physical man is the most fundamental: -
ly.important of all others. It embraces
the sympathies and loves, and these Con
stitdte the very life. No imaginable
amount of intellect can compensate' for
the dearth in that man's soul who can
contemplate :without erhotion, the many
tender, beautiful and sublime 'aspects of
thought that lie within the sphere' of
his comprehension. There is 14ing
death, when the pulses of life beat tinin
teruptedly, when the body lives likd a'
mere vegetable, and 'soul is enshrOud
ed like selfish darkness ; j reaching out to no
ardent friendship, seeing no sights of beau
ty, feeling no hearii-threb or sympathy,
aspiration, or faith, destitute of charity,
and ini:lifferent to the Welfare of human
ity. _ '
The affections are the controlling pow
ers. - They influence judgment and
stimulate:and direct intellect ; - and if
their intensity they rule misdirected and
perverted. to evil, the life of the man
so far as they have inflUence, be necessari
ly a life of evil, which 'the developeinent
of intelleet can only serve to give
ed potency. , -
The human affections are requisite as a
foundation 'of 'all true developemek--- . i
Without them man •cOuld put forth 'no
special efforts for the attaigment of spe
cial ends; for one thing- would never be
valued above another. ; and all individual
and social. conditions would be the dame.
Hence they asa the piaster faculties,i and
their cultivation and right direetion be-
Comes the highest duty of parent and'
teacher. We sometiznes tamp ourselvei
generous, and,tind, until' we go out into
the world where 'there is need to

Olie fine morning in the summer of 1830,
a handsome, but pcibrly dressed boy called
at the-door of a rich mansion in,
square, in New York - city, and offered
some .basket4 s of stranberrios for 14#1e.—
Havirigt disposed of the -fruit, he was
about to depart, when his attention was
arrested by the. appearance of a beautiful
girl, some twe,tve years old, who Crossed
the hall near tbe door. She was the,ouly
daughter of the gentleman of the house:.
The kind' look which she bestowed on
him struck a chord in, his heart, which tratil
that moment, had never Vibrated.
I" She is very lovely!", he exclaimed,
mentally, but she is the (laughter of a
great millionaire—she can be nothing to
"I am young," he' continued to himself.
"Would-1 Could make myself worthy of
her ;" and his thought,_though it did not
banish the feeling, hushed it.. •
• A week passed ; and. the little.boy again
stood; With palpitating heart, at the -rich
man's door. His fruit was - purchased as
before,.and he received the money from
the white hand-of the fair being, whom
fro& the moment he first saw, be dared to'
love. She spoke kindly -to him and bade
him call again. -
Ile did, not forget the order. 'He called
again, but,the season was advancing, and
the fruit had become a scarcity.
"I shall not be able to bring you any
more," he said one mornilig. - , 'I am sor
ry, for it was a great pleasure for me,, to
call here, but, we may meet hereafter. -
The youngheart that fluttered in, the'
bosom ;of' that young girl was touched at
the musical, though somewhat melancholy
tone in which' this was uttered, and she i
timidly replied that-she-would remember
him. , r - • -
"We shall meet again Miss, when I
promise you shall not be ashamed to ack
nowledge the acquaintance of the pWir
strawberry boy. ' -
Three years elapsed. The tide of spec :
ulation which Vas Then swelling in our
country had not reaced the flood, and the
man of Wealth, with his beautiful -daugh-,
ter, rollea in his, elegant carriage on their
way' to Trinity 'Church. , Charlotte was
just " j sweet sixten," and- the bud• was
changing to the open rose. -- She was fair
indeed. .1 ,
The service had ended--the magnificent
carriage I stood at • the church door; the
elegant caparisoned horses pawed the.
ground uneasily, a liveried footthan - held
the dOor and the Wealthy-wrchant,hand
ed bis daughter to the coach, amid" the
low OheiSapce of her - gay admirers;
' Why doesisbe not observe the. homage
'of her thousand butterfly admirers?

A blush tinges 'that bright' cheek—she

chamber; she was unhappl—but surely
the stranger wassliothing to her, or she
to him. -
Time Toned on. It waS the coldest night
of'the nneommon 'cold Winter of 1835,,
and the Memorable 16th of Dectnber. A
fire had broken out in the evening in one
of tho- - principal streets of the business
part 6flhe great comihercial metropolis.
It raged' violently, and at early morning
on the succeeding day a great portion of
the city lay in ashes;
The millionaire was comparatively_ a
beggar; his furniture was sacrificed, his
mansion disposed. of, his splendid horseS
and - carriage passed into other hands, and
even Jesse, Charlotte's coal black tavorite,
was dobmed to pass from them under the
'Poor Jesse!" sighed his mistress, "I
hope he may fall into good hands." _
But nobody wanted Jesse, and he. was,
finally purchased and thrown'a,way on a
stranger.. . • - „
1 ‘ Who didlon say was the purchaser?"
inqiired Charlotte of her father.
"A Mr. 'Manly, I. think;' said her fa
ther. .
Andther year had fled.. Misfortune had'
followed in rapid succession, and_ the
revulsion of 1837 had finally redneed
nian of _wealth to, bankruptcy. The fol
lowing advertisement appeared in;ille pa
per oethe day. _ _
P Will be sold at auction, on Wednes
day nest, on the premises, the right of re
demption to that beautiful cottage, with
about an acre of land adjoining, laid : out
in a garden, well stocked with fruit trees
and- shrubbery, situated on Staten Island,
and mortaged to John Jacob Astor for
the sum of - ten thousand and three dollars,

- The rich man, that was, in vain appeal

must have security—the times were hard
people sometimes would live too fast—
it wasn't their fault—very sorry, but could
not help him.
From bad to worse he succeeded, and
now, reduced to the last extremity, he had
retired to his beautiful retreat, with the
hope that rigid economy anirliresh appli
cation to his "mercantile affairs would re
trieve his rapidly sinking .fortune. put
his star was descending, he had no securi
ty to offer, and the cottage was. sold.
It was a bright day in auttimn—the
iP '
urchasers were few • there was but little
,competition, and the estate passed into
other hands. The purchaser gave notice
that he should take possession forthwith.
And what was to become of the lovely
child? His last home had been taken
froth him, and that fair girl was mother
less. The heart of the fond father mis
gave him when he received information
that the premiies must be immediately
He had been a proud man, but his . pridc
was .now humbled, and calmly he resigned
himself to the last stroke of - affliction.—
He, too, wept—it was a fearful sight to
see that strong man weep !
But his troubles were nearly at an end.
The day following that upon which the
sale occurred had well-nigh past. The
afternoon was bright and balmy, the fa
ther sat with his daughter in the recess of
.one of the c'ottage windows, which look
ed out upon the high road. ' He had re
ceived a note from tiie purchaser. ot the
cottage informing him that he should
upon him in the afternoon, for the purpose
of examining the premises more fully
than he had 'before had an-npportnnity of
doing. They awaited his visit..
"0, father!" shouted Charlotte, for
getting for .the moment her sorrows;
'look, there is my darling Attie Jessie,"
and a knock at the door calleckher at once
to recollection. -
- The door was_ opened by the " once
princely proprietor of the prutieely man
sion in L-,=--'sqtiare.- Before him_stood;
curious looking young man, who inquired
for Mr. -
"114 is my name,' sir, and I have the

stranger entered the parlor. " This is Mr.

Manly, as, e took her extended hand.

to-day not to take possession of this love
ly. cottage alone, but to lay,My fortune
at the feet of worth and beauty, and to
offer this fair being a heart which exists
but for herself alone.'
Charlotte loved, and shortly after gave
her:hand to Manly. They remained in
the cottage, which was newly furnished;
and many times afterward did oho mount
her favorite ''Jessie,' - at the side of her
fond and devoted husband, and roam thro'
the_ romantic- scenes which abounded in

a STORY FOE Tau Tousci.
There, was a very nice looking girl, who
Was called Laurette 41rmand. She was
generous, pleasant and industrions. But
she had, one fault, and that was she want,
OA° have her own way with her brothers,
sisters, and all her young friends. She
carried it to such an extent that they gave
her the name of Miss Lcopsinand.
.She was never satisfied with.anybody
else's ideas;ideas;
but her own she thot',
were always excellent. As she was ilk
genious, and also older than her sister 4
they yielded to her invariably when she
invented new sports for their amusement.
And to one could be kinder to a little
child than - Laurette was to little. Angus
tine, her younger brother. - '
Alphonso, was two years older than
Laurette, a;nd very naturally he did not
want to be governed bilerin-everything.
He went to college, and was a very dilh
gent student, but did not think it beneath
his dignity to enjoy and share in tbe
'amusements of the children. He loved
his brothers and sisters very dearly, but
he very much' vexed at times when
Lahrette always wanted him to subteit to
her will.
'One day Madame Armarid told the chil
dren that they might 'chobse some day
out of the next week to go on an excur
sion into the country. So they all met
together to select the time: that suited all
the ,best. _Caroline said Tuesday would
suit her the best, and Helen saidthat was
the Very best day that could..he taken,„for
she had something fixed for all the rest of
thg week.
Just then Alphonso came in, and the
two girls clapped 'their hands froni glad
ness, ,and said they knew he would' agree.
with therb. But Laurette did,not give
him time to say a word; She said 'that
no' Other day would suit her as well as
Thursday. She had arranged all her plans
for that day, and she.was deternained not'
to alter them.
"I won't go on any other day," she
said in' conclusion
Alphonso said : "But don't you see, Lau
rette, that Tuesday suits us better than
any -other time? I, should think you
would have arranged your matters to suit
us a well as yourself? '
"Yell, Alphonso," she' replied, " If
you are going to make things your own_
way, you can do it-. I won't go at all ;
and with.that she went out and slammed
the door. •
Madame Artnand heard the converse
tions growing quite lona. So she came
down stairs after she heard the noise of
the door - which had been slammed so vio
lently. •
" What is the matter children ?". she
asked: , They all cried: out at. once that
they wanted to go out in the country on
Tuesday, but that Laurette wished to .go
on Thursday. lifo're than this, that she
declared she wouldn't go at ill.
Laurette was inimethately Called down
and 'ter =Aber began talking with tu ber:
I will not tell the,w - hole of the corryersi.
don that pissed between them.' 'But the
Onbfstatiee Waitliat Laurette was inform
ed - by'lladime Animitid-that• she wiltd.
not onlrbii depriyea of going into the
country thecorn'week, mg; but ' th at -e
shoUld iaot, go on the monthly excirsion;
-for four months. • • _
- Laurette's mother . was 'one, of those
women who, when they make a promise,
knew very, well how to keep it.--But the.
Punishinerit was very good for her . dmigh
ter. I.4erette did all she cOuld i to'get rid
Of'her Overbeering '
spirit. Avery day she
eaked..Geribr strength tb4 she-might be
siibinii'sive, and she promised her mother
that she - would:never" command her broth
era and sisters agin. •
So when the four - months had passed
by, and the children left horne for - the '-
country, there was no better. girl who
rode out'of Paris 'that morning,than Lan
`rette Armand. People soon forget, to
call her Miss kcommand; and everybody
knew;her onl,y as the mild and'yentle'Lou.
