To accomplish objects of aucb great importance, it is neceaanry that the agent, by wIuim; iiui rumen lality Ibis work is lo be commenced and perfected, sb.aild hnve a correct knowledge of the principles of human nature, ami of the laws which regulate heir ooerationa a due conception of the cajxibili tiea id" the mind, ami of its source of enjoy menl." Thus it aptears that the important work of ed ucation does not deiend wholly upon the lencher, ImiI that the learner shoiild bv, in a great degree, his own iuniructer, and the process of education be a thorough c.ajrse of self-instruction. It v, in a word, llm partial application 19 children in a stale of pupillage uf Ihe very maxims which, in a free country, we address to our fidW-Citiiena, such a " let tha peopla tkua , &A. maxima,! which if judiciously (dlowed out, according to cir canislancea, ia I ha educatioa of children, would nke mea and uaeiul aaaa C tbem mocb tooert than leaching them to rely Implicitly oa tbe in structions of other. It is, in (act, tha kind of ed neat ion best adapted to the geniua and institutions of afire people.' We lit accustomedvIn our mis erable systems, lo lord it over children "too Ion. and ty force the mind by threat and castigatiuo, 1 wboa all that U requirea for the) highest progress is to be led gently and tenderly forward. We for.fmuch to the satisfaction of both parents and pupils, get that cbitdren are thinking and reasoning crea lures, aod that in wit and wisdom, they often sur pass) their ' mast erav,,. We iorgot that ihe mind grows like tlie body, and that all which the facul J ties require for their health and increase, is whole some and well prepared food. YVe forget that the chief object of education ia, lo teach the mind how to go alone." We act as if we expected it always to go ID leading-strings, and, like a good child, to do mamirMe. bidding- We curb and fret and. en slave it by hard) words and harder Mows, and then wonder that it does not soar and shine like ISew. ton's. We cripple, maim, and fetter it, ami then are surprised that it does nof'inove forward with a firm and oroud StCD. and exult in its own libertr. The consequence is,' that for all tlie. purpnatM-rif knowledge and manly acquisition, children ofn remain children to the end uf their livasanil never know what is meant by second childhood. It is true, that in some lew instance, nature is stronger than education, and tbat when the child arrives at the long wiabed-tof ert, when tt becomes a free ta in; according to law, the native energies of the mind assert Ihe mastery, and ftae above the errors and follies of early instruction. But in nine exam ples out of ten, this is not tbe cose. 1 he old sys tem exerts its despotic influence the mind ia man ufactured into a mere tool, and the man never rises to the positron fat which God and his own powers designed him. And in tha expected cases, who shall say that the moral and iiiteHcctunl progress of tlie individual would not have been for greater if his mind had received a proper impulse and a just direction at the proper period, that is, at the bej einmnff lining of the counw I 'Wa Americans of tha.premit generatai are ve rilv cuilt in reference to tins matter, and our til contrived, methods of developing, informing, and nurturing the minds of children, stand greatly in need of reconsideration and ttiorongn reiorin as much so; in fact, as do the rotten monarchies of Europe.

We may depend upon it, such a change would be found to be very consistent with the spirit of civilization, snd tbe natural progress of tbe mind towards maturity. We know at least one city in our country a city where education ia certainly carried to a higher degree of perfection than lu any otUat Mt 4b (mted Males we mean Boston, where the alteration has been introduced snd greatly to tbe advancement of the interests of science. If the body, for the sake of the soul's health, to be duly ercijed, and we do not deny V the circulation of tbe blood will be much better promoted by the exeroisse of the gymnasium, than by Ihe application of the rod to tbe back, or of the ferule to the fingers. The principal business of the inst meter is to op erate, not upon the body, but the mind. The mind is susceptible uf impressi'sis. It greatly require light, and being destitute of the aids which experi. eoce minitttera, is utterly unable, at once, to strike out for itself a wise. and JMlfe cgursej. li. requires help, and h.ippilv, assistance is al hand. Minds brought together in collision wilt ' act upon each other. It is impossible that it should be otherwise. The inst meter's mind will act upon the child's and the child's act upon the instructor's. But although the mind is thus susceptible, it is not like (what Locke says it is like) a piece of blank white paper, upon which you may make whatever impressions you please. It is more like tlie active moving ma chinery by which the paper is itself manufactured. It is a living, controlling power, endowed with sur prising tendencies, and capable often even in the infant, who can scarcely lisp a syllable, of producing strange sensations. Il should ba guided and en couraged this is tbe sole prerogative of the in truder and after that is done, il should be left at liberty to pursue its own course. It should never be forgotten that the child's mind U bis own mind, and not the property of his parents ; and the parent should learn to respect it as such, and to watch over it with Ihe deepest solicitude.
