,. .'!, EDUCATION
Ed. HealdV Tbia is o old sub
ject, and much Laa been said and writ
ten upon it from .lime to time. Bui
because it i old, it is no reason thai a
Ire-discussion of it unnecessary or in
tbe least absurd. - Tbe .little spring in
the mountainsf: because it has sparkled
for centuries, is no . reason lhai it
should dry up and sparkle no more. j
Educaiijn. or rather the modu ojr
andi oi goerning a school, may proper
ly bae three classifications, viz; moral.
physical,, intellectual. On t.te latter
we' Wish to speak' at greater length,
touching lightly (?) on the two former.
The teacher, ere he has gone far with
his schbll, wiir find that ph-J of ;the?e
th?ee will govern it ;tp a great extent,
lie may : use the , moral and physical
and be parU'ally , successful ;. He may
use these but Utile, and use the intel
lectual and be partially successful. :
He may nse all three and be more sue
cessful. Or he tray use all three and
ignWiniousiy fail. A teacher maybe
possessed $tr.ongly of the moral aod
alstr'of the phyiicai) uhd if heMoes
not possess eniugh'of Uheintelleciual
K;iV,r,r1r,in.iB!lv"wilL bni a "hatd row to
hoe." He may 7 open-' hi , school with
nrvr in ih mnrhinifT and. close .it
wiih a very pathetic moral; lecture in
the evening, and if this fails, and he
fin JA-thatTuiT school is beoanungDirk-
some. resiless. and disobedien. he may
add to the moral the : physical (which
U lha :'Kirnh ' lld IliSQ DOWer, inttT-
mingled "sometimes with harsh epi.
thets) and etill.be. quite as unsuccessful.
In bur father s days, nchools were gov
erned more by the physical. Ir a boy
jiirrhi even wink, nz at another
. -i . ...
or ihtcwing a ': paper bill across the
room, he was' instantly "called out,"
and probably nothing thori of a dried
and twisted hickory worn out upon his
jacket say nothing of his smarting
back, for ' his disobedience. . Now
adays, the birch is rathr an uncommon
ihir.g in" the school room, which is. to
a great extent, as it should be. . Now
we wish to dwell ' mora exclusively on
ihe it tellectual. In our opinion, the
intellectual is the esstnlial classification
fr maU-ifirr ihe efficient teacher. Our
long prayers and sanctimonious moral
lectures will aid us but little in teaching
the text bock properly, if we know not
well how to teach what is coniaiued in
tbe branches required," by law, l-j be
taught. Do not understand me to con
demn the moral, or even the physical.
if necessary; but understand me, we
must, firt, have the proper education,
ihen the ability to impart instruction
to our anxious and inquisitive pupils.
It was once our p'easure (?) to know
a school kept by a person who gov
erned it almost by the physical. He
was extremely,,4strict," and always
woie an angry look. The pupil might,
jn this insunce, be well compared to a
hilinrr with fear under the
paw ot a savage lion. He had.
"quiet" school, we admit. But! alas
mrlA it o. We keol an eye on
rtUI a.auwwr - a w
its progress (?) and saw its end. Un
fortunately for that school,' they . knew
r,r mnrp if not less, than they did the
uv aa v y w
day school began.
It was again our pleasure to know a
school where the intellectual governed
it. The teacher was a superior schol
ar. On enterinrr. we soon observed less
order than in the former school, but in
stead of that pallidness of countenance
we noticed a rosy flush, full red upon
the cheeks of "every pupil, which indi
cated labor without fear, afcd reward
