Is it not too lamentably true, that our systems of education have hitherto had chief, if not ex. ' elusive regard to the culture of the intellect? The moral nature has been left to take its course) and (d shape itself according to the impulse that was in it,oraccording to the undirected and objectless influence that sur rounded it. Of this I hardly need adduce examples or illustrations. , For it has been justly asked, " Who ever thought of inqui ring into the capabilities ot a schoolmaster as a moral trainer of youth?" Who ever questioned him beyond his mastery of the aecideuce, his power of conveying the re quisile instructions in Latin and Greek, his acquaintance with the sciences T While attenticn has been laudably devoted to de veloping, expanding and storing the mind with knowledge, no systematic culture has been bestowed on the conscience and the moral feelings : nay, scarcely an antidote provided against the impure but fascina ting influence of classical literature. How generally has the birch-rod betrl the index of moral discipline? Happy the youth who could find the requisite culture at home, in the instruction and example of a Christian father, or in the teachings, the example, and prayers of a Christian mother.

'r the celebrated uannah More tells a beautiful story of an oh) clock, which sud- denlyicame to the resolution to - sioptiek- nig, in consequence oi Having inougnt over the vast number of ticks which jt would be obliged to make in a given time ; but which was induced to resume its accustomed la bor, on learninc. that although it was re jjuircd w iMakc si'ch tin incTwlihlo jiumbXT of strokes, yet a certain amount or"Time 00ld-1wyb3iy though a tliQusand strokes rmgfit be thought of in a moment it would not bo required to accomplish them in many hours. Now it has often appeared to mc that 'ourig' men are discouraged from making! those exertions which are necessary to suc cess in playing the great drama of life, by precirely the same reasons which governed the farmers old clock. When they look forward to the toil, privations, and nialwhich arejequircdto ;.obtaia kwiwl edge and distinction, they are startled at the sight, and, . although jfhany of them set out with the best intentions and the most praiseworthy ambition, yet as soon as they find that knowledge is not obtained by in tuition, but is the result of hard and inces sant toil, they weary in'the way of well do ing, and, like the old clock, soon become tired of tickitig. Thercrts another class of young persons who seem to be impressed with an idea that the mantle of greatness, like the dew of heaven, falls upon the gifted sons ofgeni us unasked and unsought that it is not so much tliCyrcsult of effort as of fortunar-nnd, dochungit.te nut frrtl thncn nYOrtinna vHifH flro aKca. I 1 lutely requisite tef success, and without which they can never attain to any high de. gree-of excellence however:JibeTOlry-they may have been endowed by nature. This is a delusion which cannot be too soon dis pelled; An honorable distinction is pur chased only by" toil and self-denial by painful vigils, and persevering efforts. It requres tho 'same steady and unceasing ap. plication which was exhibited inthependu lum of the farmer's clock, and, like . that clock,, it will be well for all our young friends to-ieflect that although many ticks must be made before they arrive at the consumma tion cf their hopes, yet a moment will al ways be allowed for the accomplishment of each tick. I know many complain tlitfTthcy have not time that they arc obliged to labor for their hrcadt -that Providence has denied to them the means of -Storing their minds with knowledge. But is this really true ? Is it not-Tatlier trtie that mostyoung fnen Twasfe the time which has been abundantly provi ded for the cultivation of their minds, in the polluting haunts of dissipation in scenes of idleness and - self-indulgeneein ; the vanities nnd follies of fashionable life ? Is it not true they squander their time in a most wanton and wasteful manner with out any just appreciation of its value or any apparent know ledge of the mighty results which wouTdToliow its careful improve ment? Look at the example of that persevering young man, William Cobbett ! Born of poor and obscure parents, he was brought up without education, and at the age of twenty was scarcely able to read intelligi bly. " At this time, or soon after, he ran away from honie, and found himself in Lon don with only half a crown in his pocket He however fortunately found employment, and devoted his spare moments' to the im provement of his mind, and at the end of a frear had read all the books of a circulating ibrary, to which be found means to sub scribe, and had made himself a very fair writer. After this he enlisted as a soldier and came to America, where he underwent nately persevered in the cultivation of his mind ; and in the tumult and bustle of a camp, commenced and completed the study of the English Grammar. ' By such means it was thai Mr. Coblctt became one of the most powerful and volu minous writers of the age ; and finally, rais ed himself to a scat in the - British Parlia- ment. . By such means the poor unlettered boy, without relations and friends, whiles private soldier, and on a pay of. sixpence per day, laid the fouhdatioiiof a name which is not soon to be forgotten. His bed was his study, bis knapsack was his book case, a board laid across his lap was his wri ting desk , his time the hours redeemed from the duties and bustle", of a camp. Even to buy a pen or a sheet of paper, he was obliged to forego some, portion of his dally food, already narrowed down to a scanty pittance, and to obtain light for tlte evening was utterly., impossible ; yet, amid all these difficulties,-Mr. Cobbett found means to progress in his pursuit- after knowledge and toJay the foundation of his subsequent fame: Tlie example of Dr. Franklin is but lit tle less instructive. Bred to the trade of a printer," and, from a boy, obliged to labor With his hands for his subsistence, he con trived so to redeem his time, by applying to some useful purpose the hours which others throw away in idleness-: that lie be- came one of tho most distinguished men of his own or any dlhcr age. And the cir cumstances of Franklin are the circumstan ces of thousands. He was apprcticed to a regular business, with no other means of support jihan his daily employment He felt the same disposition which other young men fee,l to'spend his time and. money "in the pursuit of what is commonly called pleasure ;"but the example of men who had , under every , disadvantage, , raised them, selves to respectability, stimulated him to exertion : he denied himself these pleasures I lie boi'ght books with his scanty earn- nigs jmu spent ins nours in reauing. ins industry, punctuality, faithfulness and knowledce, brought him into notice, and .al though for many years he continued to la bor with no better prospect of distinction ;vT.cherfulm.-s3. aad-hap. pintWr and-at 4enUv eame-to-igtlie woa dend'adiniratibnbrthe world. The case of the celebrated Dr.. Adam Clarke affords another instructive example "for the encouragement of young men under difficulties, tins evtraordinary man was of poor but respectable parentage, .and started in life without, friends or education, and the early part of his course was a con stant contention with the difficulties of his position : but the poor and unfriended boy, by diligence and a choice economy of time, skm became" the" Tornrraniorrof -thewise and great, and besides being one of the most learned men of his age, was also one of the most extensive and usefal au thors. .'...' Now if men under such very discourag ing circumstances have pressed forward to tbe attainment of an honorable- distinction, why should not dthcrs do the same ? It is true that, like all the farmer's old clock, it requires a constant ticking a constant vigi lance lest the half hours and the minntcs run to waste ; but let no one complain that he has not the time ; and especially let him be careful that he docs not throw away half J an r.our in idleness, becausc-hc has not a By a proper improvement of time, there is not a young man in ourbroad and beauti- fut country, who might not oblain an ex cellent education, without neglecting his daily business or any important duty ; be sides laying up for himself a sure and cer tain store of happiness on which he could draw at any moment of his life and proVi ding for himself and family an ).onorablc name and a comfortable liveliliood. Let the application, the unwearied pcr-severance-and noble example -of thors-,-sti. mulate them to excrtionrThcjr facilities of acquiring knowledge arc tenfold greater than those of ClarkcoxFjnklin, or Cob bett. Many pf them have access to tlie richest libraries, the most useful and in- structive lectures, pnd liring mrsl?y-re'''"pi- eu only ten hours OI tne day in their regu lar business, have abundant leisure for the cultivation of their minds. It is almost impossible to 3Wate the amount of lalier which nay-beperformed even in flic course of so short a time as is allotted to human life. Witness the vol umes of Johnson, Addison, and especially, of Sir Walter-Scott 1 Look at the immense results which were accomplished by the en ergy, industry and genius of Napoleon contemplate the unceasing application of Wesley,. or a Brougham, er a Cromwell, or a Clarke, then ask yourself if vou have a Tigtitto; complain of the'wanTbt "time. Let me say once more, then, to my young friends, that the path of honor and distinction is before them, and that the con siderations are strong for inducing them to walkthrein. In our own country, indus. try never goes unrewarded ; and a proper improvement of time, while it furnishes you withthc means of constant enjoyment. Will also, if accompanied by virtue and' honor, certainly carry you forward to tliat dis tinction which you so earnestly desire. But VOU mflst, among all your discouragements, remember the example of tho" farmer's old clock, and not get tired of ticking. 1 - . . - Boys hear you this ?-T1ic GIoIjc at last acknowledges that there is a possibili ty of the election of Gen.

Some marry for conven ience. as widowers with families of small children; some marry for beauty in the hope, of deriving happiness from a conncc tidn with a person w ho outshines associates ; some marry for money, apparently regard, less wlicther the heiress is .a shrew or a fool ; some marry for love-love at first sight nomatter whether well founded or not -Now ifqrly all such marriages are wretched o flairs. Many a man and woman too, "have cursed ttietr day, because they rushed thoughtlessly into a connection as unfit as possible, without any reflection as to consequences, when without half an-eyr; I the consequences might have been fore seen... Somehow or other we have a habit of forming a sort of mathematical estimate of a man s sense and general character (and Use world we believe tacitly does, the same) by the choice he makes in matrimony'; nnd when we sec a man with his eyes wide open,' marrying beauty without solid worth or attainments, or joining himself for life to a fool on account -ot some pecuniary expectations, or forminc. a connection which can promise nothing from tlie put ture of the case but, disappointment and wretchedness, white we ought to pity hirti from our heart, we always set him down somewhat below jwt. Wo know some men whoJiavc survived uch on error, and have afterwards shown that they had some ener cy, but men rise or fall within their choice of a wife, and it Is generally beyond their power to control euectually all the circum stances with which they surround theiri selves by a false step. e know many men who have been struggling a whole life against the influence of an unlucky, or rather foolish nianage connection, and vet the world seldom overlooks a folly of tlus sfrrt, and all the struggling in the wqrld can never enable the subicct to rise. j Aacnsiltoaalea is-not tlie most exquisite beautv, the most sprightly. wif 'oF'flie largest fortune"", nor all of thorn together, nor a hundred other accomplishments, if such there were, that will make a man happy in a partner for life, who is not endowed wtth the(two prin cipaf accomplishments of uoVti ' stfS'SE and GOotfN'ATCRE'. If a woman, has not com. mon sense, slteean be in no respect a fit companion lor a reasonable man. uu me contrary, the whole behaviour of a fool must be disgusting and tiresome to every orn; that knows her, especially to a husband who is obliged to be more in her company than, any oneT?lse7who therefore must sec more of her folly than any one else, and must suffer more from the shame of it as being more nearly connected with her than any other person. If a woman has not some small share of senses what means can a husband use to set her right- in any error of conduct, into many of which she will naturally run ? Not reason or argu ment, for a fool is against thnt. And if she have hot a little good nature, to attempt to advise her, will be only arguing with a tem pest or rousing"a fury !

Hartford Ct., Aug. 10, 1810. Rev. J. Marsh. As you wish to obtain what information you can oil the subject of IcmprrancCi I will give a history of mysell in u few words : i" Iun au old man, nearly .eighty-five yeac of age. In the early part of tny life, it was tlie fashion to use spirits occasionally ; like others I followed the fashion , furnished my self with good s?pres of spirits, brandy, gin &zc., and sometimes wine. I made use of ing of any ill consequences from the use of them, as l meant to use them moderate bj. This course I pursued between 60 and 70 years, certainly long enough to give it a fair-trial; Aboufr44year-ago4y aeei. dent, without forming any resolution to abstain or signing any temperance pledge, I omitted using any spirits for ten or twelve days, and on reflecting a moment., I thought I felt as well or better without than w ith' them. From that time to this, f have not used any kind- of ardent spirits. Occa sionally I took a glass of wine, though not often, and used cider with my dinner. For twoTcars past, ! ha c"dnm1mo wiric,-snd no cider since September, last, (eleven months.) During, this period of nine years, though far advanced in life, I have enjoyed l)etter health than at any .'former period of my life, irom the experience 1 have had .ofrflflarly . seventy years, I am convinced that no jierson in health receives any ben cfit from the use efany intoxicating liquor ; as for myself, I am confident I should have liad mpre real enjoyment if I had never used a drop of spirits, and shoutd have saved a good deal of money, which I con sider now worse .than thrown away. It has been said, and believed, that people in the decline-of life need some stimulants. At eighty years of age, I find myself not old chough to need them, and am deter mined not to use any kind, unless prc$crib cdly a physician. Were I to live my long life over again, I would make no use of intoxicating liquocs of any kind; and my sober advice to young people is, if they wish to enjoy' the good things of this world, to preserve their health their reputation, and their money, to ab. stain from intoxicating drink of every kind. ! GEORGE GOODWIN. POLITICS OF THi: DAY. Jbia Tyler of Virginia. It is not a little remarkable that in the ex cited political contest which has for several months past been sleeping over our whole oministration papers so far as we have been able to learn, ' has ventured to assail the Character of the Whig candidate for Vice President. Why tl lis has been the case, we are not prepared to say. True his cliaractcr is al together out of the reach of just censure, nut so is Gen. Harrison's, yet he has been the subject of tlie most foul and constant abuse from the present party in power. We give tlie following sketch of Gov. Tyler which is taken from the New York " Log Cabin," and from which our readers will see that the People's candUhtoJor the ice Presidency, is quite a dmercut man from the candidate of the Van Burcn party, it indeed thoy have a candidate. . " We .wish every freeman in the Union were acquainted even so slightly as we arc, with John Tyler, the Reform Candidate for Vice President of the Unitj-d Stales. A nobler representative of a nobler raej, the frank warm-hearted; hospitable-Planters of Virginia, we never hid the good fortune to meet. Simple and unpretending in lux man ners, all his habits and tastes lor ined from bis life-lonir intercourse with his brother tillers of tlie soil, though often at the call of his country mingling ih"1ier Councils with the loftiest, Gov. Tyler is just such a man as anv farmer would rejoice to have for a neighbor or companion,- and witl whom anv plain citizen would enjoy a so. cial evening, discussing the affairs of the .Ti..i'f-lylw.i.h.w.l-y-l. ?Rt i.m thi lw(t IIWW 1 - to tluLse vUlaiiioasfl.iai tunes '" Mr. Tyler has been honored with the highest stations in tlie gift of his native State' among others those of Governor and United States Senator. To the latter, he was eleeted over John Randolph, ousting that eccentric genius" in tlio fullness of his fame, by a vote of 115 to 110. Since that time (1828) he has been prominently4efore the eyes of the Union. Yet who can recall one act or vote throughout his Senatorial career w hich justly subjects him to a cen- sure? None.11" 1 - " Gov. Tyler was educated in the strict est scliool of Jelfersonian Democracy, and has ever been an ardent disciple .of that scliool. He came into the Senate a decided supKrtcrof tlie election of Geo. Jackson, and of course of his Administration. He did not hesitate, hdwever, to oppose and defeat such measures of tlie- Executive as his judgment pronounced pernicious and his, vote and influence w ere cast-against several of tlie President's most cherished yer but exceptionable nominations to office. It was doubtless unpleasant ithuV to provoke the wrath of the potent chi-ttaiu wlo ruled -j-tlie-Natiottend -was thedolof theyominutrtr party, but duty left no alternative. After Gen. Jackson committed his great error of permitting himself to be oflered a second liTfieTist cimdidntrturHlte 1'residencyf Mr: Tvler perceived tiiat the tendencies of the Government. to deviate frrhn the Republic an track became day ly dav stronger and more controling; and when the Dcpos'itrs of the public money were removed from the National into fifty State Banks by the simple edict of tlie President, in defiance ufa direct" Congress, o tlit formal opinion of his own Cabinet, and of the strenuinis' resistance of tlie officer chrriisf." ed by law withthc keeping of the Public Moneys, Mr. Tyler pronounced the act most desjtotic in its character and dangerous its cunupiencwf and oppoiwd it wrtn all his powers. The attitude -he then a.ssumed he has since firmly maintained." " This resistance to the first of an invin cible chieftain, was by no means the first fcvidei ice fiorded- of the steTnindrpcndence of his cliaracter. In the preceding year, the measures of Gin. Jackson against the attempted nullification of South Carolina' were under discussion in Congress, warm ly supjKrted by the great mass of the peo. pic of oil parties. Mr. Tyler was.opposed to nullification, and had done all in his pow er to avert the impending crisis, but he de precated the passage of the Force Bill as TataT to" The independence of the States. His .single, solitary vote stands recorded on the journals of the Senate in oiHsition to. the passage of that bill. It may have been a mistaken one, but the prineipjes which governed, and the feelings which dictated it, will commend ifrcinsclvcs to every manly breast." "InlS36, Mr. Tyler's indi k .-ndencc and.integrity were subjected to a still stern er trial. The senate had deliberately voted that the president, in causing tlie removal oftlie deposites, had assumed powers not confided in tjieni by the Constitution -and Law. Anew Legislature of Virginia, di rected the senators from that State to vote for the expunging of this nsolution from the journals of the Senate. Mr. Tyler deemed compliance with this mandate an abject prostration of the dignity and independence of tne Senate at the lootstool of executive power. He was a republican, ahd could not vote as he was directed; but he was also a firm believer in the doctrine that a representative is bound by the wishes of his constituents, and' lie could not vote against what appeared to be the commands of his- wtnnia. uui rn? course rimin-i consistent with his principles and honor; he resigned the station to which he had been recenllyjbr a term of six years and retired to the "shades of private life. I Ie has since represented his county in tlie legislature, having bcen.electcd by a unanimous vote ; and he has received the votes of tbe whig members for L. S. Senator, but he has not sought office ; and he was the only member of the National Convention at Harrisburgh Isst winter, to whom his nomination to the second office in tlie Union was a source of embarrassment and indifference. Bv all besides, his acceptance under tlie delicate circumstances in which he was placed, was received with a burst of enthusiastic joy and thankfulness as the bond of nuion, aud the assurances of a glorious triumph.'" "Such is JOHN TYLER, tlie Peoples Candidate for Vice President of tlie United States. . To the Ingenious'.
