Lfet ey ery obe get a good an education as he can, put not neglect the rudiment of bis native tongue to study foreign languages, which at beat can be, of comparatively but Ititle use to mm in the common pursuits of life. The interest manifested in the hie-h schools of the country, such a 'colIct?es j . . . . '.' . . . . ana seminaries, with imposing titles, and chartered privileges, far exceeds thamken in commoa schools ; but it ought not to to o. : i. If the wealthy, who ' are able ta send their children away from home to" be edu cated, and fake no interest in the 'common schools around, they will mo3t probably be disappointed, for t is most likely they will get an education- which, u httlc or no better than they could have procured at home, and for a trifle of the expense. Let common schools be elevated in char, ncter, and let competent teuchers be em. ployed, and a sufbeiehf number of assist. ants, and then the excuse for sending scholars from homo will fall to the ground. Colleges, academies, and seminaries should all be supported, but not to the exclusion of the common schools. There is an error with regard to young men designed for business men, but which ought to be avoided, which, is the neglect of a proper English education to learn Lat io. . No matter how much they learn, but letjhem first attain knowledge of the branches which they arc obliged to use dai ly, when they go into business, and after that, let them become as learned as Lord Brotgham if time will permit. There should be an increased attention to common schools in Ohio. We have a tolerably stood school fund, (thanks' tc the surplus revenue,) and if that could he applied faithfully and to the best advantage, together with a tamair tax on the people"; ft condition of things could be brought about, wlu'ch would be an honor to the state. ' ' . : i But tlie change must commence with the people ihamselvcs-thoite who are directly nte rested to give their children good edu cations. ' Let them take this matter into their own hands and see to it that it be done. Let them attend to it as strictly as to their farms,' or stores, or shops ; and then their schools will prosper, but to how many will the charge come with force, that they " care for none of these things.". Again I say, see to your common schools, show by your presence that you take on interest in them : cherish them by every means in your power, for from them is derived, the great mass of education in our country. Do this and they will flourish, but leave them to themselves to take what direction whim or caprice may chance. to give them. neglect them and they will languish and die. From Abbott Family at Home. - i Accidents. . . In a world like this, where accidents are continually occurring, every person should cultivate such habits of presence of mind, as will enable them to know what to do them selves, insleod of depending upon other JKPPle In case of an accident by water, the greatest security is in lying still on the back till assistance can arrive ; and by strng. giiogin their fright, people only hasten their sinking, aud greatly increase the dif ficulty and uncertainty of rescuing them. I once read a very pretty letter I received from a young lady at a distance, thaoking a gentleman for having taught her this Ies. son, and saying that, throuch the mercy of God in preserving to her presence of mind to act upon it, her life bad been saved when she waa opt$ in a boat on the Thames where the water was twenty feet deep. She caught bold of a pole that was thrown to her j bat the stream was very strong, was whirled down it at a very rapid rata. With great difficulty she managed to keep her face oat of water ; for her bonnet filled slipped. off . her. bead Jh u ng and iJ'c)ij me a terrible weight round her neck; but she knew that very means of assistance would bo afforded her, and that her only hnpe was in keeping herself quiet and composed. The goodness of the Almighty enabled her to do this ; and after floating about twenty minutes on he back, she was taken out aud restoted to her friends, who had witnessed he accident, and altogether dispaired of her life, A poor lad watt once fishing on the tow. ish-path of a canal t somo barge horses. came up, and the boy not getting out of the way in time, was carried by the barge rope into the stream. It was some minutes be. fore he could get out, and the by .slanders concluded lie was gone past all hope.- then soma were for holding the body up by the heels to let the water run out, and some wanted to roll it on a cask, or to rub it with salt; but a gentleman present had sotne rules, printed on a card, which, he said, came from the royal Humithe ""Socie ty, in Lfondon, set up on purpose to find out and practise I lie best method of doing things ou these trying occasions; and these rules be strictly followed. He caused the lad to be placed in a warm bed, and had him gently rubtx-d with warm cloths and fluniKli,epcwUf tui.the k'lly and chest i when,. py.thescnns,JthMK Larly one morning, as a gentleman was at work in bis garden, the clergyman's footman came ruuniug, o e great flight, and begged to borrow a horse to fetch tlie doctor to his master, who had taken a dose of wrong medicine, and was in a most dan gerous stater fwo-htals. same size and color baa been sent over Bight; one was a caught to be taTe nearly in the morning ; the other containing a f-uaaulyeJT Ul a""K u"u "- " WVU BVIH VllI II . I amno, aua mo iw miinio-aicomiuna. bie sleep. .All this took place before the composing medicine, of which only a few drops were to be taken at night. ' Theser- vaut-wba-adminLatcrcq the medicine, either could not road, or neglected to read Ihe 1.1 bel, and gave the wrong' medicine, the whole of which his master swallowed, be. fore tbe mistake was perceived ; and a no one in the house knew what should be done tbe only resource was to send for tho doc tor ; 'as he lived three miles off, soma time must needs ejapse before he could arrive. The gentleman readily lent the horse, and then hastened himself to the parsonage. io found the clergyman sinking into a stu por, and perceived that inn very short timo he would be too fur gone to take any thing.. So, not having a propper emetic at hand, Jie got a .large spoonful of flour of mustard,' which he mixed iu a glass of vine. gar and then suddenly dashed two or three basins or cold water at tlie patient s head. This aroused him a little, and lie was pt r- suadedlu awullow the uiualsrd and vinegarvf hich soon made him very sick ; and then i ho principal danger was over. When the doctor came, he, of course administered the proper medicines ; j but he said live cure would have been hopeless, if nothing had been attempted before he arrived. In like manner, presence of miqd was once the means of saving the life of a poor man, weo fell over a hatchet, and cut his leg io a dreadful manner. It burst out a bleeding at such a rate, as if all the blood would flaw out of his body in a few min utes; but a gentleman who was standing by, took a fold of linen, dipped it in vine gar, bound it round the wound, and then tied hi handkerchief firmly over it, taking care to kep the edges of the cut closely to gether. L Then he had tbe.tpan carefully lilted into a cart, nnd so placed that the foot was higher than tha knee, and so he was carried away, to a surgeon, tt tne bipod had been left flowing, tbe poor man would have bled to death before be couia ouglily dry, and somewhat warfldT ho had! it put into a warm bath for five minutes. If th'-rc had not been hot water at hand, he .... T . saidlhat brewers graines would answer lite same purpose; or hot sand, or ashes out of a bakers oven, or even hot bricks, Or bladders filled with hot waterapplied to lbe feet, hands and armpits; or flannels wriinj out of liOlwatcr, anitchanged-as they begin to cool, I. is a good maxim, "If you have not got at hand the very thing you wa nl,nt.istehe " What a pit v ! but think promptly of the next best thing that is at hand." After the warm bath, tiie body was again put into the bed, thoroughly heated. All the time of thus trying to restore warmth to the body, the bellows were applied to one nostril, the other nostril and the mouth being kept cl Jsc shut, and a gentle pressure was biado- oh the chest ; thus the lungs were made to let out and take in tho air, as they do in natu ral breathing. After a long time, and when almost every body gave it "up for a last case, tbrenpneared some signs of lanaih:.ifl Thn n"trill.. tyre then gently touched with a feather dipped into ua I vol atile; this made the poor fellow sneeze; ffierubbi ngwar hen -coot iiiued sonwL 1 ime longer nnd as soon as the lad could swallow they gave him a - little warm wine.' by a'l itpouiiful at a time, nnd continued to do doctor arrived j for he lived three miles off, and, when sent for, he was gone out in one direction, and his assistant iu another; so iLnalMrig had been done till their arrival, man-servant got the family safely out of the ,. window, including a poor .old woman, who ' waa bed ridden, and who, as every body concluded, must perish in the flames. . The house was not very high, to be sure, but the danger was great, on account of the thatch, ed roof; and hod not some one been at. hand, to take an active part, and to direct others,' the family would have lost their lives; end the flame have spread much farther. . , . After that affair, tlie same gentleman , taught tho young men a number of clever contrivances ; how to fasten sheets togctho er, and to make knots that will not slip, for the purpose of persons letting themselves down fi-jm a window. He also offered a little reward to any one who should invent any likollr method of picventing mischief, anA especially of saving life in case of any future a'atrm.

From the Banmr and Pioneer. Illegible Coiumnniratlns. We have various papers on file purport ing td be letters on business which doubt less contain very important matter, but which are too illegible to invite a reading niuch'less a publication of their . contents. Our eyes arc too defective, and our time too precious, to be employed in 'puzzling out faint marks, and enigmatical cliaracters. Sonic months since, wc gave some ycry plain and reasonable rules about the pre pn ration of matter designed for a public? paper, which, as it commonly fares with " rules,1' are observed by some of our Cor respondents, and w holly neglected by otb crs. For the special edification of the lat ter class, e will herewith append a few very simple regulations, which, if duly ob served, will save us the trouble of reading, and our compositors the labor of handling " the type. Our readers miy feel assured that a compliance with any of these regtt lations will answer t'.io purpose as fully as Tftlie whole were duly obscfvedT Rules lo be observed tehen correipondmls da not wish ir expect tftcir camnlunicaLumt to receive notice. 1 . Write wittTvery pale ink, so as it can not be read without great difficulty. 2. Commence so near tlie top of the shift as to leave no space for a head orjl lie. 3. Write abreviations, as, ass. for as sociation, ch. for church, and br. for broth., er. In writing about any benevolent er -literary society, be particular to write a string of capitals, as A. B. II. M. A. B. C. D. A. S. S., and so on through the al phabet. ' - 4. Interline frequently, and be sure to .411111 1 111 I" lltiu ifuill unfile nu .iiuif oirirai.i .

If a chimney is ou fire, instead of throw, ing open tlie doors running about alarming the neigh boa hood, and destroying the fur niture, close all the doors, keep the house as quiet as possible, and carefully and in stantly put out the firo in the grate, , and then that in the chimney will soon go out, or burn itself out without injury or danger. ylt4rson s clothes catch fire, how fool ish it is. to run screaming Into tlie n stead of that, if the person, or those around, had presence of mind, to wrap him closely up in a cajpet, blanket, or thick quilt, or even to roll him on tlie floor, the flames might be easily subdued. There was once a house on fire in our village, and as it happened in tbe dead Of the night, and 1 most of tho people were frightened out of their wits, in" all likelihood several lives would have been lost, if it had not been for one person s presence tf mind and activity. When he arrived at the spot, all was terror and confusion, the people running against one another', a hd pouring thcwater over themselves and each other. But it was just as if an officer made his ap pearance and gave the word of command. Ho arranged all the people, gave them. something to do, and charged each o stand to his post. Instead of letting the men run backwards and forwards to the river tor water, he made them nil stand in a line, to hand the fall buckets from-one to another, and a line of women d nd boys to hand back the empty .backet. Meanwhile iteaad bis write one word into another .and then blame the proof-reader. 5. Write proper name as obscure as possible, and make no distinction between m, n, u; i, c, and c, as it will puzzle both the compositor and the proof-reader, and lead. to curious mistakes in names. -. 6. Be sure and write some private mat ICf "5A" thc"Tbarkside-if--TtiioiHink lions ; or which will he far preferable, put your communications in the middle of a private h-tter, and expect tho editor toex-. tract it. But tatter still, writejiour article as illegible as possible; blot if, scratch it. and cover it with nil manner of obscurities, copy it and prepare ii lor tne press. . uo Hoi fail to apologize by saying you have no time to copy it, and arc in great baste, ana wish it printed immediately. 7. II 3 surn to leave no space in tne mar canniuyT7urrht,-wafer on sot important word nnd entirely obliterate it . 8. Above all, never pay postage when you write on your own busin3ss. Always remember it is very convenient for editors aud mnn of business to pay for your bene fit. They are used to it. Jfow, how con venient it will be. for a clas of letter-writers to observe these rules.
