Ucaeoiia of awful liiarning are these to in

To have a thankless child."

could say the man that has 110 control of

thuso who would cling to this fatal priuc-i-p'o
look around them and they will soon
see that nothing is more common than lor
a mau who is abandoned to solf-indulg. uce
to boit of his liberty ; to exult in the riot
of lic'iise. The drunkard brags of bin
freedom with a tongue he cannot ooutrol,
aud with a thirst that drives him to his
cups. True 1 tho liberties may spurn the
restraints of virtue but he cannot escape
tho meshes of polution.
True liberty con-ists not onl in the
power lo do but in the power to lati'uiu
from doing. If parents, then, woald have
their children perfectly free aud uot boaud
as slaves to their wills, thoy must add
wholesome restraints and impose just com
mauds while the mind of tho child is ten
der, aud must enforce them with firmness
aud a true, not a false affection.
L.'t all tho teachers, parents and direc
torsapply themselves assiduously to the
performance of their respective parts.

wisdom of Oartltac offered up his vow ol
unrelenting hatred to tho Romans. Lot
us with bt tter spirit, but with the same un
doubling zjal devote oursulvcs to the per

In tho discharge of this our sacred vow,
all our earliest aud unceasing efforts must
bu dcvoied to the education ot mind ; with
out which even freedom itself would bo an
empty name. Knowledge is the only safe
protection of tho dignity, tho power, the
glory, the happiness, the virtue, and even
of the existence of tlio republic i'self.
Without it our institutions are erected up- ,
on tho saud ; defacclcts from the shocks j
ot ignorance caprice aud passion. With it
thoy are grounded on the sodd rock, and
will defy the btonns of foreign and domes

at daylight placed upon tho cars aud taken
