Scnoot.. 7 -,One of the 'first things which'
strikes a foreigner—says an -exchange—
con templiting ourcom mon schodl system,
is the variety of Objects' taught "in our
schools. A hasty glance 'at.the common

growing generation would form a nation -
of scholars hut . npon reflection the question
naturally arises, "How can the - young

erous studies thrust upon it almost in in '
!Experience has shown opkt they who
have passed through the instead of
knowing the variety of topics, know com
paratively little, and that minds instead of
being , stored with knowledge, etre simply
clogged with a bewildering array of hazy
ideas about a thousand different thing.—
This is the result of cramming learning
into young minds—a system so common
in .our day, not only in common schools,
but in academies and colleges. Adaptation
for study is never consideredliy the guar,
dials of children nor by the teachers.
There is the curriculum and there is the
child. The latter has got to run up the
scale as if it were a musical instrument
whether the 'notes are comprehended or
not, and more studies the former contains
of course the better the school. This is the
popular fallacy. People think It a great
thing to have their children - learning to
spell, read, write, study_grammar r geogra
phy, philosophy, astronomy, Latin, Greek
German, Choctaw and mathematics all at
once, while the fact is that they cannot give
an intelligible rendering of an ordinary
' There is a depth of wisdom in the wor.]s
of the philosopher who said he leered "the
men of one book." It is by far,preferable
to be perfect in one study than to have
wasted a lifetime in studying the -title
pages of various volumes on innumerable
topics. The strain upon the capacity of
children in the upper grades of our schools
are far in excess of their available resour
ces. Children have not the judgment to
assimilate the mass of information that
graded courses of study usually prescribe.
There are two periods in mental pro
gress, namely, the mechanical and the
thinking period. Too often a grievous
mistake is made by trying to anticipate
the latter period. Certainly, children
can be taught to do wonders, but their
minds must not be overcrowded, nor their
efforts paral7zed by an amount of analysis
and classification for which they do not
possess the faculty,noi the material where

periencelo guide them in such excreise.:—
"It is a faculty to shake the tress before
the fruit is ripe, or to strike the iron be

The application of this trite expression,
was never more opposite to anything than
to our method of endeavoring to extract
from the unripe .mind that which it has
been debared from acquiring, by forcing
up m it a crowd of 1 r inches of h a ning.
and not giving it time to contemplate the
beauty of one branch. By all means, if
possible, let every branch be taught in its
place, let us have common sense in the
management of our common schools.

from the effects up to a late hour in the
evening. The cattle were being driven
to the Station tq be tarred for Baltimore.
Mr. Simon Mickley who was in the vicin

also prostrated with two of his horses, but
fortunately escaped any serious effects
from the - Shock. The loss to the Messrs.

HIGHWAY ROBBERY.—Several days
since an attempt at highway robbery oc
cur red near the village of Leitersburg in
this county. Two young gentlemen whilst
riding quietly along the road were sodden
ly accosted, by two disguised men who de
manded their money, at the same time
presenting pistols at the heads of the un
fortunate riders. Of course in a case of
that kind all that remains to be done is to
put your hand in your pocket and surren
der the stamps or run the risk of being
shot at. Now, these two gentlemen did
not wish to shuffle oif this mortal coil as
yet, so they produced their pocketbooks,
containing respectively (and respectfully)
sixty-five and thirty-nine cents. The
highwaymen could hardly realize the fact
that those sums were all'they could ob
tain - from the parties, so they proceeded to
search for more, but found none, when
they incontinently marched off into the
woods in disgust. No clue has been ob
tained to the perpetrators of this high
handed, but low paying act, and it is. the
general opinion that the disappointment
of the ruffians was punishment enough
for the tommission.of the clime.— Twice

WORTHLESS GuAnA.XxxEs.—Under the
most solemn treaties, the United States
guaranteed to the Sioux Indians, the pos
session of a reservation along the boun
dary line of Wyoming arid Dakota Terri
tories. By the usage of the - government
since its foundatibn, the Indians have
been regarded as the rightful owners of
soil ; and as they have been pressed west
ward and restricted in their ranges by the
irresistible progress of the white people,
tracts known as " reservations" have been
set apart for them, upon which they are
guaranteed immunity from intrusion.—
In these districts they are supreme rulers.
Having been recognized as separate na
tions, United States troops have no more
right to enter their territory in time of
peace, than they have to invade Canada
or Mexico; in addition, it is provided in
every treaty, that no troops shall trespass
upon their reservation without, their con
sent. In spite of these guaranties, the gov
ernment has seen fit to authorize a party
of United States soldiers, under: Gen. Cus
ter, to explore the Black Hills, a small
system of mountains in the Sioux reserva
tion. What the object of the exploration
may be, no one has been able to explain,
as the country is not open to settlement,
'nor is it large enough to furnish much
geographical - inlbrtuation. The restil t earl
,hardly fail to be art Indian war, for (yep.
Custer's men are spreading reports of au
abunclaoce.of gold, .combined ;With fertile
valleys, xich pasturage, and good water—
a series of. attractions bound to allure
thoutands of restless ? adventurers from
every section of the Union.. The Sioux
are brave and warlike, and will not be
wanting in defence of their homes and
their lauds. They Will have justice and
law upon their side, also, yet we doubt if
the government, having already violated
the plain stipulations of the treaties, does
not add another wrong to the many done
to the red men, by driving the Sioux
from this reservation, to a region even
more remote and inaccessible.
