Ilomc Influence. I
The social and moral character of Us scholars is one
of the clement, of the school-,- The formation of that
character is, to a very great degree, in the hands of pa
rents and it is a work which they are perforrAing dair
ly, hourly , unconscious of it, though they may be,-
for good or evil. The silent influence of their lives, rrke
the hand oL4he artist, is adding (line after line to toe
delicate engraving, which is to be reproduced and raul
tiplied until the material into which it is wrought is bro
ken into fragments. That influence may make the
child a blessing or a curse to himself, to the school and
to the world. Surely, then, it if not to be trifled with,
nor slightly regarded. - if ;
The .effects of home influence ajc never more perce
tible than in the school room. So apparent i. it there,
that it is tlie frequent remark of teachers, thai! the de
meanor of the child furnitshes a criterion by which they
can determine, with a remarkable degree of accuracy
the character of its parents. The home where rude
ness of demeanor, harshness of language, neglect o
"wholesome restraint, are the distinguishing traits in the
character of the parents, seldom furnishes gentle, cour
teous, orderly subjects in the Bchool-room ; " men do r ot

teacher looks in vain for respect from those who have
never learned to respect their natural guardians, or 'or
obedience from those who have not been taught frx m
theii infancy that obedience is a virtue. The lessons
conned at the .fireside are sure to be recited at school,
and the voices of home find there a fitful echo Thtse
considerations, which cannot fail to receive the asstnt
of every reflecting father ajid mother, should operate as
a sufficiently powerful inducement to the exercise of a
proper parental influence, for their own reputation, if
for no other object. But there is something mpre, -t le
welfaic of their children. They are sent to school with
a view to their mental and moral improvement- Th ey
should go there with right views of the object and of
duty ; with the conviction stamped deep upon their
minds and their hearts, that the violation of the laws of
the school, disobedience of orders, disrespectful conduct
toward their teacher, unkind or uneourteous treatm nt
of their schoolmates, inattention to study, falsehood, y ll
garity, profaneness, truancy, are morally wrong 4 tl at
the commission of any one of these offences will subject

THE GRANITE VILLAGE.
The following interesting remarks in rela
tion to ihe town of Quiney (Mass.) are from
one of the editors of the New York Express,
who has recenlly been sojourning in that thriv
ing village :
"Quincy is one of the most thriving ot the I
New England towns. It deals lacgely in two j
of the principal exports of Massachuseiis, gran-
ite and shoes, and would export the ihird, in !
the article of ice, if it had not a harder and ;
more profitable material to act unon in ihe
miQ rriaa fw m Vi 1 U t M A rrM
quarries lor which it is so famous. These
quarries are ihe gold minesof ihe regions where
they are, and one of ihe most valuable products
of the soil. They give a handsome livelihood
to more than a thousand persons, and labor
prospers abundantly in their midst. Many
more could find employment ihere if they would j

the less comfortable requisitions of a villase

" A day's work here means a day'awork.
ages are according to labor and capacity.
Tho quarrymen earn in the commonest labor
from $1,33 to $1,50 a day, and the stone ham
merers from 81,50 to 82,50 a day. The toil,

by letter, denying the impeachment, and plead

not interfere in the matter, but cannot help
wishing that the Governments of Austria, Spain,
and Naples, had sent the Pope a consignment
of food and raiment, in place of armed troops
and the material of war. Religion, humanity, the
Roman people, and Holy Pontiff" himself, would
all have been better served. As for the French

FROM THE PACIFIC.
The Editors of the Baltimore American are
indebted to Henry Lareintree, Esq., of ihe U.
S. Navy, who has just arrived from the Pacific
for late papers and the annexed items of news
from that quarter.
Mr. Barton our Charge at Santiago de Chili,
having been unable to obtain from that Gov.
ernment the amende held to be his due, in con
sequence of tho course taken in reference to
his marriaire to a ladv of that country, had
closed the Legation on the 27ih April, and was
to demand his passports fortwith.
The U. S. ship Dale was expected at Val
paraiso, with 81,500,000 of California gold
a portion of which was for the Atlantic Slates.
The ship Ann McKim, which arrived at
Valparaiso on the 15th of April, in 45 days
from San Francisco, had 8300,000 in gld.
We find nothing of special political interest
in the papers. The Comercio of Lina contains j
an account of the execution of Col. Winoendon, I
of Bolivia, who was shot at La Paz on the 17ib
of April. The crime was a poliiical offence,
for which he sufR-red the extreine penally of the
law. Col. Wincendon was, wo believe.edu-
cated at St. Mary's College, in Baltimore.

THE CRY OFPROSCRIPTION'.
A good sound rap on the knuckles, 'at &
time when a gentle and encouraging pat
upon the back was expected, isas a gen"
eral thing, intolerable, TcTbef deserted
by ones friends in the hour of necd,;arid'
to see them joining the enemy instead of
fighting under the banner their leader has.
raised, must bring a sickening weakness
to the heart, and unnerve the purpose
greatly. The Washington Union, every'
one will admit, has labored zealously, and
has manufactured woe and wrong out of
a - if.-"
ever' Pll,ca removal, while shedding.
&t the same time, an abundance of tears
over" the objects of its sympathy. Such

bor and ability, should, according to all
common usage, procure universal admira
tion from the party it assumes to repre
sent ; but there are always . ungrateful
spirits, who cannot be touched, and 'who
in a mood of stubbornness most strange
ad unnatural, refuse to consider that
" the game is worth the candle." Of such
is the Cleaveland Plain Dealer, which
says: :- ' '
There are crying times in Washington
about these days. m The Union brings the
mostsickly accounts of whole departments
assembling, and joining in a general boo
hoo at the fate which has overtaken them.
The old man Ritchie is chief crier. ; His
heart is full (as well as his pockets) and
it overflows like the inundation of the
Nile. He knows no democracy but the
PP suckers at Washington, and he thinks
. - ' . . . -.
y puuusmng meir inouiaiions me wnoie
nation will be melted to tears."
This is downright ingratitude, and quite
sufficient to make the Union fret for; a
month to come ; but not content with this
blow, the editor, after a sharp thrust !at
the Union's mourning for Cave Johnson;
goes on to administer the following modi
cum of very sensible advice to all per
sons concerned :
Now if Father Ritchie supposes the
people care one fig about such kind of
troubles at Washington, he is greatly mis
taken. They do not spend their mpney,
time, and exertions, simply that a few cor
morants can fatten on the spoils. ' Tho
great mass of the people care nothing a
bout office. All they want is a good go
vernment, and these accounts in the would
be government organ of the groans of of
fice holders in Washington, are sickening
and disgusting. Somebody must hold the
offices and discharge the duties, and un
der a' Democratic Administration1 we1
claim this should be done by Democrats.'
But when the people have, in a constitu
tional way declared for a change, die
game, submit like men, and not go out of
office blubbering like a lout."
The character of the Cleavjeland Plain
Dealer, as a newspaper of the most radi
cal Locofoco stamp, is too marked and.
decided to permit its political brethren to
turrf away the chalice it commends to
their lips. Phil. N. Amer.
Electioneering.' The following good
hit at the practice of candidates for office
playing agreeable to the families of those
they visit when on electioneering tours, is
from the Vicksburg : ..
A few of the candidates for district at

Hinds county not long since. Crabb nurs

able to one of the grown girls and the old
! JHdy at the same time, white Hooker talk
ed in an agonizingly affectionate manner
to the sovereign. Buck, in the mean time
was making himself useful by helping one
of the small boys to get his dog over the
fence. Duflield, it is said, twisted the cat's
tail with a perseverance which would have
done credit to the bad boy in the primer,
and pleased the baby so prodigiously that
it came very near going off in a spasm of
, laugUler, when all tlie candiaates rusned
to its rescue and made such hullabaloo
with their kind exertions that a setting
hen under the house was scared off her

' day to this. At latest accounts tend! the
