Let the child read what it feeU an interest in, andjt will read an correctly at a eonver$e$, tB ,y ijftjn, a- gain, (for we dp think' this fireat evil of compelling children to pronoucea arords for years to which tbey attach .no meaning whatever, too much ' neglected,) never let cnuaren read wbat tbey do not understand If there are words in the . lesson of which they do not know the meaning. let the dic tionary, or lb a Itached glossary, ot the teacher deSne them, Never let the- vounir reader pronounce a word without obtain- ing the meaning the author attached to it. The teacher should Trvouentlr Question his clars on what has been read, that he mar know how far the readers have comprehen ded their author and ascertain what mean mg they connect with the indivvdual words. If we should ask adults, and evcu liberally educated men, to dense some worlds of the most common use, tbey would besate, and probably be unable to give any thing like a concise, correct definition. Jn .this, the sys tems of instruction in all our 'literary insti tutions are rniseiably defective Educated men arein the constant habit of using wad 10 wnicn tbey rttach a connective raeam indeed obtained from usage, but to wh they would be unable to give a concise ijiimun. mis evil is universal inouriMK tnary schools, and ia seen to a greater oricss extent ia all -our higher institutions up to the professional college. It n no wonder that men mafc auch an imwmrwrJotce of words, that they use many that are equivo gbI, and that they are so frequently isisun ders'ood. Ignorance of the correct mean ing of words does not permit them to select su.-b isexprcas what tbey intend to commu nicate. There is in our district schools another bad practice which sives almost alt. the achooU . vei y.unnaUiiaL and., disagreeable habits. I refer to that high, uniform pitch of voice the young reader is sure to strike into. 1 do not remember ill it 1 ever heard a ktll read jm natural conversational tone of voiCTiiamMtiticti ieacl era should , be. caicful to .have their pupils rean m natural lone?, and to nave tne tones varied according to the sentiment.. Teach ers seldom pay any attention to articulation; and the consequence is that but very few an liculato well. It is very rarely that we hear a reader or speaker give each It-tier of the word its full sound. Very frequently indeed one-half of the word is dropped, or clippod, or in a u di My " ii it IcredT" This d fe ct in articula tion 'keeps the mind 'constantly directed to the wuida, that it may make out what they arc, and the attention is diverted from the subject. This practice is also very unpleas ant lo the car. Teachers should make their pupils give each letter and sj liable its diMmct sound. hen this is done, there is a force and inctning in I ho word which is never felt when half uttered. If I was asked what rules I would give to children in our common schools, that they might loam to read with ease, coirect nejs, and imprestiiveness, I would say, only three, and these aro ver. rirnple. I should not exulain the philosophy of I ho human ,iccf -r-wwuiuiiui spenx of empnasis, inrtex ion,or cadence; neither of pauses, accents or intonations. Hut 1 would aaj, undenttmd what you read rend in a natural, convr. Jtallmal tone of voice, and read often. If teachers will see that their pupils practice these three plain rules, they will have the pleasure of bearing good readers. pulrxcl School. rHlLADftreiA WOtftM; -V VSUte'of Virginia.5 I hava '".V exeurt'lto smmsVa.1 -talJ L .

Ulrica M ires, LEARNING TO READ. The teacher should confine his pupils but a short time to words mar shalled into ranks, as tbey stand in the col. urns of the spelling book, conveying not one idea, of any meaning whatever. There is too much mere verbiage in our district schools- Childien are confined to these unmeaning words for two or three years. Teachers should see the folly and the ty ranny of this; tbey have seen difficulty; for it is with great labour that they keep the minds of -the pupils on the lessons. As 60on as children have learned some of the powers of letters, and (KMscsses facility and correctness in joining syllables into words, they should be permuted lo read easy sen tences. These sentences should be com posed of words of one or two syllables, aud contain a familiar and pleasing idea. Now, for the first , tune, the child begins to feel pleased with its studies; all before this has been unintelligible aigaaaad combiuaUou of signs. But now it finds these signs con ductors of Uiuugfitof sojnethfftf that in structs and pleases. The child is now gratified with its book; for wttitifl iWeff- sufficient to draw and fix" the attention. At presnt there are a few books whtt-h are simple without being filly, and well adapted to children Such should be put into their hands. After the pupils are familiar with the Unsuae and contents of tiiese books, others containing senttnet-s more complicated, anJ words co uponed of a greater number of avllalilcs should be giv en to them. When the child can pronounce words of two sytla1i.1efc" irput into-the Lugtish Reader. A fi; book for a literary tnau, but entirely unfit for children. If the pupils, at ihis stage ol learning, ar nolsofoitunatcastobo exlulted into tins 'class of honour.' they are privi leged by reading in the back, purl ol the spullingbook, or in the Columbian Orator; reading equally unintelligible as fiat in the English Reader. Thus the child, from the time it commences goin" lo school, till its parents require its constant labour at borne, spells and reads, wiites and rehearses words and sentences or words, and whole volumes of words without ever trying to obtain a clear, distinct, useful idea from them. The ihill r.vr ftiinbtf rkf lifirifr miiiBti,- what it has just r-d- If q-" of this nature -hould be put, the child would bo as incapable of answering as if H had been reading hieroglyphic. The pupil at school does not think that books are read because they have a meaning, but because they have words to be pronounced and sentences to be radensed or emphasized. TUu whole effort consequently is not to find out the meaning of what he reads but to finish his verse without 'missing a word.
