I am pleased to see an ably written com
munication in the 'Globe of last week, cal
ling the attention of teachers to - the subject
of ventilating schoolrooms ; the subject is
one of vital` importance to both teacher and
pupil ; one That demands the attention of ev
ery philanthropist and friend of education,
and Lain happy to see it introduced in com
mon-with others. I hope hereafter to see
this 'Subject - . Urged more strongly' upon the
minds of parents and school directors, I need
not say teachers; for I am persuaded that they
are fully awake to its importance the sad
experfen*ce of.one at least Might fill a vOluMe,
if Iliad any idea that it would be enteitain
ing or instructive. • I admire the spit it and
tenor - of -the author's -remarks, and believe
that, he has taken - a proper view
,of the sub
ject,_but I must be . allowed the privilege of
calling.his'attention to one or two facts which
he haS overlooked.
He says, "do not the teachers knoW of the
great effort to reform the whole .system of
education in this respect, (physical training)
in some of the New England States, and the
success attending that effort 1" I answer,
most assuredly we do ; and I would also re
fer him to the proceedings of the late meet
ing of the Pennsylvania State Teachers' As
sociation, which may be found in the Janua
ry No. of the Pennsylvania School journal,
to prove that this effort is• not only not con
fined. entirely to the New England States,
but that our own State is,. in this one partic
ular, - actually - in advance of any other ; this
has been conceded by a committee from Bos
ton on this subject ;it will also - be seen that
this-.subject was there taken into consider
ation, and regularly discussed. I would also
refer him to the report of the committee ap
pointed by that body at their late meeting on
the "Study of Physiology in Common
Schools," and "the Best Mode of Ventilating
School houses," which, together, with some
other articles on this subject, I expect to pub
lish rs 'soon - as arrangements can be made for
so' doing ; in the meantime I shall be happy
to have any suggestions which may occur to
any of the friends of education
. on this, of
any other subject connected with the cause ;
any communications addressed to the Educa
tional Editor of this paper shall cheerfully be
published in this department. I would also
recommend to Sehool directors, parents and
guarcliaris,LaS well as teachers, the Penna.
School Journal, edited by Thomas H. Bur
rowS, Lancaster, Pa., it is invaluable and
should be in the hands of every friend of ed
, It may be well to remark that the want of
properly ventilated schoolrooms, in this
county is generally felt in country schools :
our schoolrooms here, though not perfect in
this respect, are far superior to those gener
ally found in the country ; a better system
of heating - might be adopted, and also a sys
tem of ventilating, which would be better .
adapted to all kinds of weather ; but further
suggestions will be made on this subject here
after. EDIT. ED.
Read by Miss ANcy - IVIIDIVITT, before the Hun_
tingdon County Trachers' Institute,
December 522, 1851.,
There are few subjects which have elicited
more observation and discussion than that of
education, yet comparativoly few persons ap
pear to comprehend the ful, meaning of the
word. Education does not innsist merely of
a knowledge of Belles Letters and the differ
ent arts and sciences of the day. If we were
7.ncroly intellectual beings, we would only be
capable of improvement intellectually ; but
as we have been created with moral as well
as intellectual faculties, we are capable of,
examining the laws of morality, and the-at
of the Creator from whom such laws
are the emanations. And if we act simply
as intellectual, and not as moral beings, we
act contrary to the highest and most noble
principles of our constitution.
If parnets consider their children educa
ted when they have been taught the rudi
ments of what is commonly called learning,
with little, if any attention given to their
moral education, they will discover, when
perhaps too late for amends, that they are ig
norant and unlearned. Although a literary
education is of much importance. when uni
ted with morality and virtue, it is fearfully
to be dreaded when linked with-vice and im
morality. Learning, where the heart, the
temper and the moral frame are neglected,
only gives power to do evil : and when
the heart gravitates the wrong way, it draws
along with it. the understanding ;
duping and perverting that noble faculty,
Its possessor is capable of perpetrating
any crime which might promise a pecuniary
Nov as childhood and youth are the peri
ods in life which materially influence all the
following ones it is important that moral cul
ture should be early attended to ; this mo
mentous work should bo commenced while
the mind is capable of indelible impressions.
A lifetime of school discipline cannot fully
eradicate the bad habits formed in the nur
sery. it is there, ere they start out upon
the thorny pathway of life as responsible
creatures, that they tnust be prepared with
an outfit for the journey. The duty of pre
paring this, has been divinely entrusted to
their parents ; and demands that they use
their utmost endeavors to secure to them
health of body, vigor of intellect, and cor
rectness of moral feeling.
Children, before they are capable of re
ceiving instruction by precept, may be ma
terially influenced by example. The pro
pensity of. imitation is very stiong in them,
and, often ere parents are aware of t h. 13 bud
ding of the intellect, they are watching and
trying to imitate what they hear and see; for
like little monkeys, or canaries they are al
ways trying to mimic what is said or done
in their presence, - especially the words and
actions of their parents or . instructors. There
fore it_ is. not a matter -of minor importance,
nor even of secondary consideration, that
teachers should be of a sound moral educa
tion, and good moral courage, for without
this they are as unfit to go in and out before
our youth, and cast their_ unhallowedinflu
ence over their unsophisticated minds, as
though they were ignorant of the first rudi
ments of our language.
Though "precept upon precept" be given
to children and their minds stored with mor
-aleand religiouS lOre of the purest kind, it
will avail nothing; unless a corresponding
example be daily set before them. They are
quick to detect any inconsistency especially
in those to whom they are taught to look for
-instruction, consequently it is not by precept
alone, that the principles of morality are in
culcateCi : but by this with the continual act
ing out of' those principles.
By the constitution of our ,nature, there is
such an intimate -connexion between action
and motive; between the performance of,an
action, and the principle from whichit eman
ates, that - one cannot long exist without the
other. The theory of morality= , would soon
become effete if unaccompanied by the prac
tice. Its existence is known only by. this,
and by this 'alone can' it be successfUlly cul-'
It is a proverbial saying that,habit becomes
a second nature ; . it was with reference to the
almost invincible force of habit, that the wise
man penned this worthy aphorism. "Train
up a child ;n the way he should go, and when
he is old - he will not depart from it."
Habits either good or evil always become
more inveterate bytime; the longer they are
indulged in, the more closely they become
entwined with the nature.
Though this is an irrefragible truth, yet
infatuated parents vainly hope that the faults
of their'ehildren will be cured by time, while
they, by a cruel indulgence--a false tender
ness, are cultivating those very faults, and
in so doing securing to themselves a' store-of
grief and bitterness, and to their children a
life of wretchedness and misery-.
Time may indeed correct the errors of in
experience in those whose hearts are not
wholly corrupt, those in whom the true prin
ciples of morality and religion have been
early inculcated, instead of ill tempers insub
ordination and all the corriipt.promptino-s of
the human heart ; but time. alone will not
enre that vice and immorality which must
arise from 'a want of the proper culture of
the mind and heart ; in that period of life
when the human faculties, are most suscepti-:
ble of cultivation.
'Again, the education of 'our youth .should ,
be adapted to, the nature of our government..
And as we are under the protection of a re
ptiblican government, it is of vast importance'
that we look well to the moral, as well as-in
telleetual training of the rising' generation,
those-who, -at no very distant day, must be
come the rulers of our nation..
Some of those whom we now 'serve in the
humble capacity of teachers, must soon fill
this responsible station, and as it is impor
tant that we should be under the jurisdiction
of wise and just laws, so is it that we give
to our youth such an education as will secure
their adoption. This momentous truth claims
of every lover
. of our country much more
,a passing thought. Every true hearted
American should consider it a privilege, as
well as a cluipto aid in the great and worthy
enterprise ) of uniting morality and literature
until they are constellated forever ; and as
literature is rapidly advancing, God forbid
that morality should be suffered to recede.
Worldly knowledge is a dangerous -leader,
and should never be permitted to go in ad
vance of- morality and virtue.
There is now a loud cry in our land for
moral reform ; we hear it from our prison
, houses, we hear it from that wretched hovel,
the home of the drunkard's family, the tears
of that heart-broken wife and mother cry
aloud for moral reforn'i, the welfare of our
country demands it, and we must obey. We
must arise and battle against the great evil
which, by setting at naught the law of our
country, and sacrificing to avarice and pas
sion all the better promptings of the human
heart, threatens to destroy our existence, as a
free, moral, and federative people.
And how shall we more effectually and
thoroughly eradicate it, than -by striking at
the-root, undermining the foundation, which
undoubtedly is, neglect of good moral train
ing'in early youth.
It is not alone in the power of the wealthy
to give to their children a thorough education
in this important branch, but all have equal
advantages ; all have within their reach the
means which would enable them to accom
plish this great end : the poor as well as the
rich, may instil into the minds of their chil
dren the great principles of morality and vir
tue, It is not only their privilege, but a
stern duty ; duty to their children, duty to
their country ; and duty to their Goddemands
Teachers,• as well as parents, all whose sit
uation or calling in life, leads them where
their influence is cast upon the rising gene
ration, have much to do in this work, and
should consider well the great responsibility
devolving upon them—should examine care
fully. ever y thought word and action, remem
bering that they are speaking and acting for
eternity, and eternity alone may reveal the
amount of good or evil proceeding therefrom.
We as teaehers, have a great work, one in
deed that is worthy of the most arduous la
bor. Ours is no ordinary business ; we may
with propriety adopt the language of Dr.
Cumming ; used in reference to the work of
Christian, "The painter paints for a gene
ration, we forever ; the builder builds for
a century, we for eternity." And as the
statuary takes so much pains in hewing out
the marble which soon perishes, so let us be
far more careful in the forming of those
minds which are to endure forever; ours is a
far nobler work, that of adorning and beauti
fying those temples of the living God.
1:1* A new tomb has been erected over the
remains of the late John MeDonogh, (the Lou
isiana millionaire) with the following among
other inscriptions found among his papers of
ter his decease. We commend it to the at
tention of all who are about embarking in
"Deprive yourself of nothing necessary to
your comfort; but live in an honorable sim
plicity and frugality. Labor then to the last
moment of your existence. Pursue strictly
the above rules, and the Divine blessing arid
riches of every kind. will flow upon you to
your heart's content ; but first of all, remem
ber that the chief and great study or our
life should be to tend by all means in our
power to the honor and glory of our Divine
Creator—John McDonough, New Orleans,
March the 2d, • 1804. The conclusion to
which I have arrived is, that without' tem
perance there is no health : 'without virtue
no order; without religion no happiness:
and that the aim of our being is to live wise
ly, soherly and righteously."
