The advantages or a paid fire depart ment are so manifest as to require little if any argument at our hands.

EDITORS GAZETTE: At the meeting of the Central Board of Educe thiii held on Tuesday, the City Superin-' terident, in his monthly report, stated that one of the Principals bad been in structed by his Local Board not to report to 'the Superintendent the number of pan ishments administered in his sub-district during the month. Thls information oc casioned some discussion in the Central Board, and the subject may now be con sidered an open question, whether or not corporal punishment should be contin ued in the schools . ? For the present I will pass the local question and consider the subject in its general bearings. - The first school of which we have any account was established In the Garden of Eden,—on the ~K inder- .Garten" plan, with the Creator as teacher and Adam and Eve for scholars. In those days, when the scholars were limited, books were not published—and there were, of coarse, no Wilson's Illustrated Readers. The lessons were afteethe modern style 'of ?'object teaching." The scholars being pieced in a beautiful and attractive gar den with no cruel directors to impose restraints on the Teacher, and to enforce barbarous treatment of His pupils, He was left in freedom to adopt merciful mike and to manage His school in a hu mine and civilized manner. As the children were orphans, or had no living parents, the Master could hive adopted severe rules without fear of complaint; but being of tender heart- and rational mind, He could govern by none but true anil just principles. He accordingly se leeted the most beautiful spot on the face of 'the earth, planted It with noble groves of shade and fruit trees, redolent with flowers, musical with birds and babbling brooks, and animated with flocks and herds of useful animals. Adam's first less& was naming the an imals and living things, and Eve's no donbt was naming the flowers and beau tiful objects that surrounded - them. Their conduct must have been very good —No. I, for their Xaster was so much pleased with them that he gave them .a clear title to the ground, and included all the . animals and improvements. But amongst the trees inhe middle of the garden the Master ha d planted one, dif fering from all the rest, possessed of ma gi Cal powers. This tree they were com manded not to tench, nor taste of the fruit, or if they did they would surely die! But how Were they to know the meaning of the word "die" when they had no dictionary, and had never seen a dead person, or any dead thing? So one day when Adam was dressing his shrubbery the Serpent beguiled Eve, and she disobeyed this Master's commands; and afterwards pursuaded Adam to _eat the fruit- also. The Master soon afterwards came along, and fonnd'Hisscholara hiding from Him, and suspected that they had disobeyed, and when He accused them they did not deny‘or lie about it, but "owned up." Some masters would have raised a "row," and giveh them a terrible welting, or enforced the "death penalty," but He didn't do either. But after giving them some good advice turned them otit— "expelled" them—and then set them up in!the dry goods and clothing business. Their, stock in trade consisted H of aprons. - They got along prosperously for a while, (though they could have had but few customers,) until from some cause, not stati3d in the history, they must hare had 'a terrible quarrel, for between them flay managed to "raise Cain." After that they made peace and lived happy, and in the course of domestic events Abel came along and joined the school. Now, it seems that he was a fa vorite with the Master, and that in those days they made presents to him. Cain was in the fruit business, and Abel raised cattle. It naturally followed that Abel made his present from his flocks: and Cain from his choicest fruits. The his tory further states that Abel's present of meat was the more acceptable, leaving us . to Infer that the Master was not a strict "vegetarian." This partiality shown for Abel raised the devil'in Cain, and as soon as they got off by themselves, he gave Abel a most unmerciful flogging. The fact stated, is, that he whipped the very life out of Abel. You see he had no ex perience, and didn't know when to atop! Imagination must supply the particulars of the circumstances. This is the first instance tf that kind of punishment on record. li, t the Master soon came a ft er Cain With a "sharp stick," and as a reward • for hie wicked conduct- gage him a "mark," and sent. him traveling to foreign countries. We have here the first record of '"marks" being given for conduct, and the second instance of "expulsion." • - From thia history it seems that the first Great Master used kind treatment, evento, ' his disobedient scholars, and dis cOuntenaneed Cain's , ' corporal punish mfent inflicted on Abel. Let the teachers of the present day, acid those especially in ourpublicachoola, snbstitute some kinder method of gov ernment than that now n common prac tice: "Use the sugar plum instead -of the rod," as .Beecher says, and it will not be long until they and r the commit nity, children included, will be happier and better satisfied with the "waye'of the world.". , • In next article will consider the Mo saic taw, "eye for an eye, and tooth for a tooth." -&moot.
