J dustry, although very imperfect, has accomplish-
j ed all that the most sanguine social reformers
hove anticipated in this direction. So far from
the prognostications of the political economists
as to the universal level of misery )eing accom

of poverty are purely artificial. Tor five mon hs

with necessaries, and even many luxuries, supe

classes in England, at yet and prices within the

j a ball and assembly -room, w here, at a cost with-
j in the means of the poorest, entertainments were
j enjoyed, such as in real, significant beauty, I
i have seldom f-iun surpassed.
I The f j'.lowcr.s of Charles Fourier, who are in
; this country very numerous, seem to be chiefly
; of two classes those who regard the failure of
j this attempt and its forty defunct predecessors
: as owing to their Luiittrial poverty, and tho.-e

' absurdities and inconsistencies practised in its
. name. - -
! The intelligent portion of social reformers are
nearly all looking in the direction of " Modern
j Times." The identity of this movement with
J the Phalanstery of Charles Fourier, in the most
essential principles, is ljeginningto be recognised
i by the most advanced social reformers here. The
essential conditions of associative industry, as
! conceived of by Fourier, cither exist, or may be
J reasonably expected to grow up spontaneously,
; in the " i'.quitable Village." The orgauizatie.n of
i domestic industry, and the various economics
1 which constitute the very staple of the previous
j reformatory attempts, will here be based on their j
natural perhaps only possible foundation ;
; while, in regard to the social relations, this move
ment has advantages which must inevitably give
it the predominance over ell narrower schemes.
The fact is, that in this country it is just here
where the r. al difficult y lies. In the United
States, generally .labour is well paid abunelantlr

J the men and women who actually do the hard work
of society receive fr their own ci nsumption so !
i large r.n amount of its produce. And, further, :
i in no country in the world eb those into whose !
hands society commits the charge of its vast mas
ses of accumulated wealth, employ those masses
more fjr the- grneral welfare and progress of hu
manity. They arc satisfied with that which ex
ists ; they will not hear of any other. From time
to time effecting practical ameliorations, many
' of which contain, too, the germs of grand ulteri-
or develcpements, they feel tliemsr-Ivcs already

The field, then, of industrial organization, is al
! most closed against the reformer. But turn your
: glance towards social relations, and the picture
j w ill be very different. This is in reality the dark
j side of American life. I have been here now over
two years, and I kuow strangers cannot pene
'tratesofar. I do not hesita'e to s-ay that no
I w here in the world is there so wide-sprcaddomes-!

are n unline-il to an- locality. The Women's
Rights Conventions are attended as well in Ohio
a.i in any Eastern States. And they are not the
only symptom ; spirit-rapping itself is, I am well
assured from what I have seen, indicative of so
cial disease, especially in relation to the domestic
Social reforms, then, which limit themselves
to industrial organization, and studiously ignore
the existence of thedeepest and most wide-spread
the North American Phalanstery, is the want of
manly sincerity in the leading men.
But the vice is general throughout American
society. It seems to me a natural consequence
of the too-much prolonged attempt to believe
in the incredible," succeeded by a public profes
sion of what the mind is ultimately compelled to
recognise as " inconsistent with known facts."
The decay of real religious faith, indeed, is, I am
convinced, at the bottom of much of the social
misery existing in this country. The people
have lost their old faiths, and with them the ba
sis of their moral sentiments, and have found no
new ones. Hence the general decay of the moral
sentiment ; for it is Mrs. Grundy alone w1k
keeps society together here ! The moral senti
ment is low indeed : an unbridled selfishness rules
over all. Personal interest is, in these days,
coming to be regarded and not in this country
alone as the sole motive worthy of a rational
man. I am well assured that a man who pre
tended to be actuated by any other, would be
distrusted throughout all commercial circles.
Is it any wonder, then, that woman suffers ?
woman, our moral providence? With the moral
sentiments the human affections fall to a dis
count ; and Women's Rights Conventions are
naturally the order of the day. If the Modern
Times Reform did nothing but utter its protest
against the rampant selfishness which disdains
all considerations but that of individual interests
material interests, too it would merit cur
sympathy, and prove itself something far other
than the mere-ly disorganizing influence for which
Henry James has mistaken it.
Education in Russia
Very little is known in this country of the
habits, feelings, and state of civilization of the
Russians. We are accustomed to consider them
a benighted nation of slaves, inhabiting a coun
try into which the schoolmaster has not yet pene
trated; but the following statistical details,
drawn from reliable sources, may perhaps give
our readers a different Impression, or at least
enable them to form some idea of the actual state
of publie instruction in the ciupire of the Czar.
There are appertaining to the depart me-ut of
the Minister of Public Instruction : G universi
ties, 1 normal school, 3 lyCeums, 77 gymnasia,
433 district school, l.CGS town schools and 592
private schools ; in all 2,810 establishments for
education, under the care of 5.04 teachers, and
containing 11S,327 students. This is in Russia
proper. Russian Poland has, besides, 1,539
schools cf various kinds, frerrmritrd by P4.584
students, 183 of which are private institutions ;
and in the Caucasus are no less than 5 schools,
S of which are private, with 237 teachers and
i here are 21 theoloncal seminaries, nclongmg ;
to the Greek church, with 72 teachers and 1.2G1
students ; 14 of the Armenian doctrine, with 45
teachers and 72S students ; 8 teachers and GG0
students in the Lutheran establishment ; and 11
Mohammedan schools, 7 of which are of the Shute
order and 4 of the Sanniic persuasion, instructing
in all 5SG studrats.
There are 27 military colleges, all of which
are under the elirection of the heir apparent, the
Grand Duke Ciesar Alexander. They are supcr
intentleel by 8G5 professors, and are frequented by
In addition there are ten naval schools, with
3.920 students under the charge of 337 teachers.
The Minister of the Finances has S5 schools
belonging to his department. He employs 4G1
teachers and instructs 9,779 students.
The foundations of the Empress Mary are 40
in numWr 30 schools for girls, with Go'J tuto
resses and 5.S77 pupils, and 10 for boys, with 80
masters and 1,938 pupils.
There are two schools of civil engineering, with
S5 professors and 416 students ; three lawr scheols.
six institutions under the direction ot the lecre-
i cry eii State, with 9G profi-ssors and 993 student.
These are all, probaply, intended to fit 3'oung
men for official life. We must not forget an in
stitution devoted to tlse teaching of the oriental
languages, with SO professors and 207 students.
There are 2G agricultural schools, with 124
teachers and 1,591 students; and 2,096 village
schools in the domain of the crown, employing
2,783 teachers, and giving instruction to 14,064
males and 4,843 females. ,
Thus, it appears that in Russia 257,597 young
persons are receiving insirucuon 01 some waa,

instruction. This is a small proportion com pared
with thc United States, where, occording to the
last census repeirt, 4,000,000 of youth, at the rate
of one in every five free persons, arc receiving
instruction from 115,000 teachersin nearly 100,
000 schools and colleges. Nevertheless, 250,000
well-educated young persons, disperseel each year
in the different quarters of that huge empire,
cannot fail to gradually leave there mark upon
the national character, in good time.
We know more about the quantity than the
quality of these schools, as Russian publicists
have seldom anything to say on the subject ;
but it is generally admitted that thc military
institutions are of the highest order. The agri
cultural school of the imperial demain is said to
be admirably managed, and is under the imme
diate supervision of Nicholas. 250 peasants are
thoroughly instructed in theoretical and practical
cultivation, and are then sent to model farms in
various parts of the country, to 6et a reforming
example to the neighborhood- The tuition lasts
! four yearn , and is divided into three periods. In
the first year, the boys arc taught reading writing
arithemetic and surveying. In the second gram
mar, mathematics, and the elements of agricul
ture ; and durijig the third and fourth, agricul
ture ; practically as well as theoretically, and
mechanics. Besides these branches, they are in
structed in trades which mar I useful to the
farmer, such as tailoring, shoe making, cabinet
making, cooperage, blacksmiths, and carpenter's
work, and in the construction of agricultural ma
chines. A foundry, brickyard, a pottery, tan
yard, a candle and soap factory, and a windmill
are attached jo the school. It is not required
that each sttnnt shall pursue all these branches.
The teachers are to judge of the aptitude of each
pupil, and to direct him accordingly but every
one upon leaving the establishment is expec
to possess a thorough acquaintance with the gen-
cral principles and practice ef agriculture, and a
comoetent knowledge of the collateral branches.
At th" last exposition of the agricultural pro
ducts of RussU, at St. Petersburg' the various
objects sent in by this school excited great atten-
tion. The leathers, in particular, were of so fine
j a qulity that they were selcctcel for exhibition in

oldest in Ruia, and inl757 the Academy of

in 17G3, the college of St- Petersburg in 1772 ;
and in 1783, the Russian Academy, which now
forms the sectnd division of the Academy ofScie-n-ccs.
Paul established, in 1799, the Academy of sur
gery and Melicine. In 1802, Alexander created
t he office of Minister or Public instruction, ani
mateel by a dtsire to raise the moral level of his
people. In 1804, he founded an Engineer's school
and two unaersities that fKasaw and Char

give great attention to the subject of education.

that the men who are really the most fond of the
ladies, who cherish for them thc highest respect.

Worthy cf a Yankee.
A Jersey Tavern keeper who had become more
celebrated for the length of his bills than for the
abundance of his table, met w ith one as sSirj aa
himself on one occason. A Yankee happening to
pass through that barbarous region, stopped at
this min's hotel and ordered dinner. When fee
came to pay the bill he was astonished to find it
a retched out to the round 6urn of six dollars.
This rather startled the Yankee, and he demand
e-d to know what he had eaten, that such a bill
should be charged. The landlord replied, 44 the
bill will show you.' 0"n consulting it he found
e oral kinds of wines and extras.
" dl, look here ! I didn't have non of yonr
wines there w as none of that 'ere steuT brought
on for me, and I won't pay the bill !"
; " ''"i xvf" never wait for orders here we know
i our business, replied the landlord. 44 The wine
was on the table, and you could drink it or not,
tnal was FOKr business, not ours."
The ankee saw there was no use in quarrel
ling about the matter, with a broken heart he
paid the bill. Three months after that our East-
orn friend again made his appearance at the hotef
and called for dinner. When he sat down to the
table he laid a twenty dollar bill at the side of
his plate end ortlered all the delicacies he could
tui,lk of a1, thc wi,ics ,ie 00111(1 stomach. Whihr
eating his dinner he called the attentive tie

Prevalence op Baldness. From somecaus
er other, baldness seems to befall much younger
men than it did thirty or forty years ago. A
very observant Latter informed us a f-hort time
since, that he imagined much of it was owing to
the common use Of wearing silk Labs, which,
from their impermeability to the air, keep the
bead at a much higher temperature than the old
btaver structures, which, he also informed us.
went out principally because we had used up all
the beavers- in the Hudsin liny Company's terri
tories. The adoption of silk hats has, however.
given them time, it seems, to replenish the breed.
This fact affords a singular instance of the influ
ence of fashion upon the animals of a remote con
tinent. It would le more singular still if the
silk hat theory of baldness has any truth in it,
as it would then turn out that we were sacrifi
cing our own natural nap in order that the bea
ver may recover his. Without endorsing the
cI'ativo opinion of our hatter, we may, wo
believe, state it as a well known circumstance,
that soldiers in helmetted regiments are oftner
bald than any other of our heroic defenders.
QricK Repartee. Gov. Morris had ahighre
peet fr Bihop Meore, a roan noted not only for
the purity of his character, but also for the retir
ing modesty of his disposition, and for the general
favor in w hich he was held. As the story ran
a dinner was given by romo one of Gov. Morris'
friends, when lie was about departing for Europe.
Bishop Moore and his wife were of the party .
Among othar things that passed in conversation,
Mr. Morris ssid that he had . made his will in
prospect of going abroad ; and turning to Bjshop
Moore, said to him :
44 My Rev. friend, I have beque-athe-d to you my
whole Rteick of impudence."
Biihop Moore replied :
44 Sir, you are not only very kind, but very
generous : 3-ou have left to me by far the largest
portion of your estate."
Mrs. Moore immediately added ;
"'My dtar, 3-ou have come into possession of
your inheritance remarkably soon."
