Now with the press of Britain, France, Germany,

in biiropc i At any rate, laying aside ail specula
tion, the people of the United States have a most
imxrtant duty to perform, in the education of their
oflfipring, and their thorough discipline in the his
tory, knowledge and practical and familiar exer
ciseof free republican rights, duties and privileges
under our Institutions. It is to this subject, with
great humility but anxious interest, I would invite
the attention of your readers.
Education in its primitive signification implies
that gradual process of leading a human mind
from the ignorance and greenness of youth to the
knowledge and 'maturity of manhood. In its ex
tensive and comprehensive sense, it includes the
instruction of tlie nursery arid parental discipline,
as well as that of the School Room or the College.
It may be physical, intellectual or moral, or all
combined and this last is tlie perfection of educa
tion. -By the first he has the blessing of a sound
body, by the second a sound mind, by the last an
enlightened conscience on the great duties and re
lations to God, to man to society to his Country.
And no man can be educated to any practicalpur
pose or benefit, who is greatly deficient in either of
these constituents of a good education especially
is this true. in regard to the two last, although the
first, or physical education is too much neglected.
' Whoever considers the fact, that man more dif
fers from inanimate nature and the lower order of
animals by the constitution of his mind than in any
other respect that two stones might be side by
side, and never be conscious of either their: own
or another's existence that an inferior animal
might go so far by instinct as to know how to break
up the kernel of a nut by the use of the stones
But to man alone is it competent to distinguish and
classify both the minerals and the animals to
break up the former and grind them to powder and
then reeompose them, and build houses, bridges,
canals and roads of them to cut jewels or carve
"statues, from them or o render equally subser
vient to his purposes all the orders and species of
the inferior animals. Reason then is the attribute
which exalts man above all nature's other works,
and the more highly it is cultivated and improved
brings tnm.nearer in resemblance and aflinity to the
ureat aupreme; as bpenser near four centuries
ago, sung with great judgment,
For God Himself, forwisdom most is praised,
And men to God thereby, are Highest, raised.
By knowledge, we do learn ourselves to know. ;
And what to man, and -what to God, we owe."
And when we inspect the operations Of the mind,
so to speak of a subtle spiritual essence, composed
of perception, imagination, memory and judgment,
and the principles of the will.and all the efFective
faculties ; the moving and melting forces, of the
most highly gifted of intelligent creatures how
from the light within, it comprehends and illumines
external objects and relations how it apprehends,
speculates, rememoers and reasons on them how
it separates and combines them, in analysis and

pursuit after truth, beauty, honor, and immortality,
it has overleap-! all human barriers and worldly
obstacles, and is only shut out from a view of the
blazing glories of heaven, by tlie resplendeut hues
and gorgeous tints which veil the supernal world
from the vision of a mortal how it peoples Heaven
with angeb and spirits of tried and purified virtue,
and enrobes them in innocence, bliss, love and
beauty how .haggard and hideous, fiow blackened
and horrible it mai.es hell, and its iafamous and

He possesses something of the Divinity a spark,
it may be, of the immense Eternal Mind, given him

A Good One. Tlie Buffalo Commercial says,
the proprietor of an intensive iron foundry in that
city Was complaining to a gentleman, 'one day,
that '-the people did not know where his establish

their engines, machinery, etc." "It is the most- na

"The-King and Court." A correspondent of
the Washington Union says, that he called upon
General Cass to congratulate him upon his nomi

that of tlie friend who accompanied me, I found
his reception room gracefully festooned "with
wreaths of flowers, and surrounded with bonquets
of great beauty and fragrance." This, the Boston

The peasant set off at full gallop, and on arriving
at the Mayor's said, "Monsieur le. Maire, as there

A T the conchiion of the first half-year of tjje Union
Magazine! the Publisher feels impelled :to make
some acknowledgment of his sense of the fa vrahie re
ception accorded to it by the public. I.ts success has
certainly been unprecedented; and while itl may ln
pardonable to ascribe this in part to the merits of the
work, it must not be denied that the public good-will
and kindness have been abun lantly demonstrated.
The press, in all parts of the country, has given its
voice liberally and heartily in favor of the new aspi
rant. To flag after this would be dishonorable indeed.
It is the hope of th publisher that the courage! and en
terprise which le!ing to sue ss will be foujid rather
to have stimulated thati slacicen d his" er-rtious. If j
there be tahi:t of a suiiul.e kind in the coimjjrv, In- is

The Collegiate year divided into two sessions
The first b g tis eight weeks after, and the second 21
weeks before, the 2nd" Wednesday in June. To such
as desiro to enter College, it is important that they be
in attendance at the opening of the session. A short
absence at that time may place a student under disad
vantages which will impair his scholarship throughout
the session. Our course of study is so arranged as to
meet the wants of young men wild desire to acipiirc
an extensive English education, without studvitnr the
Ancient Languages. The benefit to be derived from
the use of the Libraries aud from attendance on the
Literary Societies should strongly induce such young
men to prosecute their studies here. In order for a
student to enter upon the English course, be must be
thoroughly acquainted with English Grammar, Geog
raphy and Arithmetic. .
- The expenses of this Institution are as follows :
Board per session 40 ; Tuition aud deposite fee, per
session, 22 50, are"$125 for the Collegiate year, ex
clusive of incidental expenses, which include the cost
of text books, fuel, furniture, &.c, for room in College.
We respectfully advise parents that more pocket mo
ney than is necessary to supply the reasonable wants
of a student is injurious. The practice of contracting
debts with tradesmen, in the vicinity of College, is in
a high degree pernicious. A law of the State of Vir
ginia designed to provide a remedy for this bane of all
(Colleges, is to this effect: That any merchant' who
shall give credit to a College student, withvut special
authority Jrom parent or guardian, shall, upon
conviction of the fact, forfeit the debt, forfeit his .li
cense, and be fined .)00. Iet parents and guardian
have due regard to this law, and where it may be ue
cessary to open an account with a merchant, let the
individual be designated and the amount specified, and
the evil will cease.
Tlie primary object of the Preparatory School, is to
prepare young men for College, but the course of stu
dy is such as to jnett the wants of the neighborhoods
iii which they are located, and to qualify students for
the ordinary occupation of life.
The School in the vicinity of College continues un
der the direction of Mr.W. T. Davis, an able and
successful Teacher, and my own immediate sujHTvist
Its sessions and vacations are the same as those of
the College proper. The cost of board, &c., is a little,
less than a student of College pays. J

For the School at Gareysburg, N. C, we have ob

and for the School at Ridge way, N. C, we have en
gaged the services of Mr. W. C. Doub, A. M. These
gentlemen graduated a few years since at our Institu
tion, with a high reputation, and have been teaching
with eminent success since that time. The school at
Gareysburg wus opened ou the 3d Monday in Janua

Mouday in February, and are in successful operation.
The eholastic vear will be divided into two sessiou9 of

I shall give the necessary attention to those schools,
and expect, in company with oiie of the officer of the
College to attend the annual examinations grade a!J

Sjo important are the CPracfcnbcrg Medicinet to

should be immediately taken :
1st. Uoery neighborhood should hate its Graeft
