ccembcr 101 " wo
Uicisms" aud'-'ti
of the Columbia county
held at OraiiReville, Dcco
find some "uiigrammaticisms
aicuracics'' of Orthography that should
not have occurred. Also, somo in Punc
tuation of which wo will not make men
tion. These palpablo deviations from first
principles, appearing in the Record of tho
transactions of a "Teachers' Institute," do
not look well.
"Ingrammaticisms" aro the following :
Pages 0th and 12th, "And by this means
learn theni(pupilu) exactness and rapidity,"
should read, ''tcath them, &c."
Also, "Of our present system otlorrow
" Wo never borrow. For instance iu
Subtraction, wo add 10 to tho upper col-
umn as a matter of expediency, and to
mako up tho deficiency tho lower column "I hero must be a very strong attach
has thereby sustained, wo add 10 to tho mcnt between you then, certainly," Ire
lower column. joined.
Pages 8th and 19th, "Of which their
growth aud perfection depcivh." "Health
and happiness depends," should bo depend.
Pago Mth, "Care aud patieuco is neces
sary, He. it sliouiu reau, are necessary.
On the same page, "Tho time and place to
teach Spelling, is in our primary schools."
Should read, are in our primary schools.
Pago 15th, "Thcrcforo, when an indi
vidual has determined to crose teaching as
a profession, &e.'' It should read, to
cliuoie teaching, &c., as cho3o is the past
Unse of tho verb choose.
Pago ISth, "They aro liable to loose
their appropriation, Ac' Looso means to

fies. to forfeit, or bo deprived of any op
portunity or thing. It shoulil rcau, lose
their appropriation.
Pago Wth, "Ho found neither teacher,
director or citizen." Wrong in two re
spects, Neither requires as its correspond
ing connective nor, and not or. Again,
neither and nor require tho uso of two
uoutiJ oii,as neither teacher nor director,
and no neither ttaclicr, nor director, nor
Orthography. Page 5th, The word
"leveller ' occurs. It should spell, lovclcr.
Pago Gth, " Substracti jn." It should tpell
On sundry pages aro found tho words,
"dovclopcinent" and "develops. " They
ihould spoil development, dovelop.
I'aKo 10th, "Unskilful." It should spell,
Pago 13th, "Dcvitlcd." Should spell,
Pago 10th, "A very small pittanco is
generally grudged teachers.'' It sounds
as if grudgud teachers nro ft very small
pittance. Ambiguity of languago should
bo avoided, except where it is uicd pur
posely. It should road, "a vory small
pittanco is grudged lo teachers."
On fuch occasions as Teachers' Insti
tutes, thoro bhould be appointed, as Re
porters, those who are familiar with the
principles of Grammar, Orthography and
Punctuation, or else blunders will, neces
sarily, occur.
A Eonnarkablo Dog.
AntuotaUot lBiiil tnado a journey
front central New York down through the
eastern part of Pennsylvania to tho city of
Philadelphia in a lumbering stage coach.
To mako matters as disagrceablo as possi
ble, it chanced that early ono evening I
wai aroused from a sort of traveling doze
by a sudden crash and jar, and tho set
tling down of the front part of tho vehicle.
Tho fore axle-tree had broken eloso to the
off wheel, and until it could bo repaired
wo could not proceed any further.
"Theio's a small villago back hero about
threo miles," said tho driver, "whore I'm
going to take tho horses, and you can ei
ther come with mo or get lodgings at a
farm house closo by.1'
As I was tho only passenger, and very
much fatigued with the ride, I preferred
tho uearcst uartors ; and getting tho drii
ver to assist me in removing my luggage
tinnier, i asueu entertainment ot tuo tar-
mcr who assented in a cordial manner ;
and in less than an hour I was seated at a
table, and doing ample justice to tho good
cheer before mo.
The family of Mr. Mansfield for such
was tho name of tho worthy farmer con
sisted of himself, wife, pretty daughter of
fourteen, and a largo English mastilf. I
havo included the dog, because his won
derful sagacity entitled him to a rank much
higher th;tn an ordinary beast. I
Rcfore I knew anything of tho remark
able qualities of this animal, I was pecu-i
liarly attracted to him by a certain air of'
stately dignity combined with gentlouess,
and tho almost human look of intelligence
that beamed from hi-i cj-es. It seemed, I

"That is a vory fine dog you have Mr.
Mansfield," I o.isually remarked, as 1
drew back from the table and stw the an
imals eyes fixed so gently and comprehen
sively upon me. "At what price do you
value him V
"His weight in diamonds could not pur
chase him sir I" replied the farmer, with
"Indeed I"
"No, sir ; ho is ono of us ono of our
""'ly 1 1113J' say and I would just as
i think of disposing of my wife, or my
daughter Ilattio there, as ofsclling him.
"Indeed there is a bond of union that
nothing but death can sever. A most ex
traordinary animal, sir, is Bruno ; and to
him I am under God indebted for tho life
of my darling child ; only for him, sir,this
would long fciueo been a houso of mourn
ing." "You excito my curiosity; will you not
favor mo with tho story ?"
"Presently I will, sir. But first let mo
show you how much Bruno knows and un
derstands. Where did you place the can
dlestick last night when you went to bed,
Ilattio !"
"On tho table, father."
"Is it thcro now?"
"No, I brought it down in tho morning.'
"And tho extinguisher 1"
"I left that on the table."
"You may go and get it- Stay I" ho
continued, as sho aroso to obey ; ''you may
not bo able to find it in tho dark, and
Bruno can. Go and get it Bruno."
Tho dog, who had been looking at us,
soemingly listening to the
quietly arose, and going to a door wuicu
opened upon a stairway, he stretched him
self upward, lifted a latch with ono fore
paw, pulled tho door open with tho other,
and disappeared. In a few moment he
retu.ned,with tho extinguisher in his mouth
which he carried straight to his master.
J "aire il to Ilattic," f M the httar.
The dog nt onco advanced to tho girl.
"I think mother wants it," laughed Hat-
Tho dog immediately went to Mrs.
Mansfield, who was busy drying Fomo
dishes and placing them upon an old fash
ioned cupboard.
"Poor Urunol" sail hia mistress with
a smilo ; 'they aro only trying you ; but
if you wilt go over to tho firo place, and
take a scat till I am done, I will relievo
you of your charge."
No human being could havo shown more
ready comprehension of everything spoken
in an ordinary tone than did that sagacious
bruto ; and as ho valkcd over with a state
ly step, and seated himself as directed,
with tho extinguisher in his mouth, I ut
tered an involuntary exclamation of sur
prise "I suppose you think this a very pleas
ant trick which ho has been taught?" ob
served tho farmer, turning to mo with a
triumphant smilo, but I assure you, upon
my honor, I never asked him to do tho
same thing before "
Of course I was all amazement. What,
save the power of speech, was tho dividing
line between this bruto and the human
species !
After trying him several limes more, in
different ways, and thus proving him to
have a knowlcdgo of all that was said to
him, 3Ir. Mansfield proceeded to relate
tho following exciting and interesting in
cident. "Six years ago last summer," began tho
worthy farmer, "on a. dull drizzly after
noon, I drovo down to tho village to cot
: my horso shod, and being detained till
near dark, Ilattic was sent by her mother
I to fetch tho cows from a distant pasture.

t,irne(iFrom the verv moment of beins
told whither -he had gone, I f.'lt a itrangs
unea-inn-s about the poor girl j (or the
night had then set in inten"ly dark, and
her way lay over a rugsed hill, through a
pitch of woods, and over the neck of a mi
ry .swamp, where I had mado a safo foot
path by sinking some logs in tho treach
erous ground, and constructing a rudo
bridgo across a sluggish stream. But
should either she or the cattle miss this
bridge and get into the swamp, thcro was
danger of being mired and suffocated ;
and therefore it was with a good deal of
nervous anxiety that myself andwifo.light-
j cd by a lantern, hurried over to t
ous spot, hoping to meet Ilattio on
I A fino- m'lity ra!n was steadily
tho peril-
tho way.
and the clouds hung about tho earth liko
a fog, so that it was impossible to see only
a few feet with the aid of a light, and not
an inch without it. Judging from a caro-
fill in-pection, that tho cattle had not yet
cr .sscd the bridge, we went over to ihe
pasture in search of tlicm, calling' Ilattic
loudly all the timo. Wo found the ani
mals at no great distance, but two were
mising and tho poor child was not to bo
discovered. Then wo became alarmed in
earnest, and commenced a soareh for her,
hurrying from one point to another, and
j shouting and hollooing continually. This
wo did for a couple of hours ; and then
my poor wife sat down aud wrung her
hands in dispair. I suggested that Ilattio
might even then bo at homo and alarmed
at our absence i and this suggestion inspir
ed her mother with sufficient hope and
strength to get there, where sho suuk down
under a new disappointment, helpless as a
Ah, sir, that was a timo of tcniblo trial
to me my sweet child lost, my wife utter
ly prostrate, and not another soul near to
give mo aid and sympathy. I could not
stand it alono, and I at oneo hurried to tho
nearest neighbor. Tho man immediately
set off lo rouso other neighbors, and his
family accompanied me homo. By mid
night quite a party had assembled at tho
houso hero ; but it was decided not to bo
gin tho search for Ilattio till tho following
At daybreak seven of us wont off in
quest of Iho poor child, taking along a
couble of dinner horns and somo threo or
four rifles, in hopes of reaching hor by

Wo took tho regular cow-path to the pas

and bushes, and we were several hours get
through with that; and then wo spread
off in different directions, and occupied the

myiclf down wishing death to relievo mo
of my misery.
It was on this evening that a younger
brother, who had been away a coublo of
weeks on a journey Up the country return
ed with Bruno, who had been his solo trav
eling companion. Tho sight of tho dog,
whoso sagacity had long been tho wonder
of all who know him, excited a faint hope
in my breast that he might yet find his
youg mistress, cither living or dead ; and
with this idea uppermost in my mind, half
insane, a3 I was, talked to him of tho sad
affair, just as if ho were blessed with tho
understanding of a human being. Never
shall I forget tho sorrowful but singularly
comprckensivo expression of his brown
eyes as ho kept thorn fixed upon mine all
tho whilo I was speaking to him ; and
when Iliad done, ho turned away with a
mournful whine,and suddenly disappeared.
Early next morning my brother shoul
dered his riflo, and announced his intcn
tion of trying hh fortune in a fresh search
for tho poor child ; but all tho men had
gone homo, and I was tco much broken
down with grief to accompany him ; and
so calling tho dog, and not finding him ; he
set off alone.
"It was somewhere about the middle of
tho day that I was sitting by tho bed of
my nearly distracted wife, trying to soothe
and console her as best I could, when sud
denly Bruno, whom I had entirely forgot
ten meantime, came bounding into the
room, looking soiled and fatigued, as if
from a long journey, and at onco began to
bark and whino in a strango, peculiar man
ncr, running to and fro between mo and
the door.
" 'I do bcliovo the dog lias found the
child !' exclaimed I, starting to my feet
with rt new hone.
" 'Rod grant it I' cried my wlfu, vrring-
' mg her hands.
' Try and bo calm af least until I re
turn,' said I, feeling a new life in all my
' I hurried out, tho dog preceding in
and barking joyously. lie then struck oil
in a direction different from any wo had
taken in our search for tho girl, barking
excitedly, looking back at every few steps
and thus seeming to urgo me to follow him
This I did, as fast as tho naturo of tho
ground would permit, running the most o
tho way. Into and through a deep, dense
wood, down along a gloomy hollow, and
up the steep sides of a wild, rocky moun
tain, the faithful dog led mo to a distance

to invade the other, was almost amusing

scene on an occasion when tho Shanghai
