For the Herald.
The question of thoroughness ia one
among the first which demands the
thoughtful consideration of the teacher,
yet is one among the many to which a
large proportion of educators in our
common schools give but little attention.
By the term "thoroughness" we
would not he understood to fay that the
etudent of our common school shall
master or understand everything con
nected with the different tranches of
etody pursued, but rather that he shall
be required to approximate, at least a
commendable d.'gree of thoroughness.
How very often do we visit many of
. oar schools and perhaps the first recita
tion to which wo liten id one in Eng
lish Grammar; the class close books,
andthe teacher with book open before
him (or her) asks the questions which
the members of the class have commit
ted to memory ; answers are all given,
perhaps, just as they are printed in the
book ; "the lesson was well recited,"
says the teacher, and dismisses class
with a great deal of praise. But after
awhile when class id about through the
book, Mr. Thoroughness steps into the
schoolroom aud applies hi3 "test."
Hiss Mary, apparently the most intel
lectual and intelligent of the class, is re
quested to name the "parts of speech"
in a scutenco ; Miss Mary hesitates,
stammers, and finally, with a melancholy
smile, says "I can't." Now the fact
is Miss Mary told tho the truth, and
more, she was not to be blamed for the
failure. She, innocent though she be,
no doubt entertained the idea that "she
was good in grammar," as many aspir
ing pupils do, when in reality they know
nothing scarcely of the simple rudi
ments. Thoroughness itself, implies a slow
and labored mental effort to acquire
knowledgo. The mini must advance
by degrees ; especially is this true of
the younger pupils.
This fact is illustrated in the history
of man from birth until tho decline of
life. The uiinl of a child may be com
pared to a "blank" ; when the little
stranger enters the world it brings this
"blank" along, upon which to take im
pression while it sojourns in this, its
temporary bonis. The great work of
education is to fill this "blank." "Im
pressions upon it are made as i o on as
the chill can form a mental conc:ption
of an object." External objects are
presented, and impression after impres
sion is male upon the "blank." Grad
ually, and by degrees, the mind is open
ing out this '"blank," possessing in it
self the philosophical property ef ex
pansion is constantly receiving acces
sions, while its capacity remains undi
minished. The great "Book of Nature"
supplies the child with lessons for the
first few year. of its existence, and in
learning from this "Book" its progress
is only by decrees. After the lapse of a
few year?, the law allows tho child to
enter the comaiou or public school.
The same slow process of education is
then and there initiated. Step by step,
by degrees the child advances; first the
eimple souads. then a combination of
sougds, then words, sentences still up
ward on the ascending scale, until
finally the student receives a "degree'
which ever after entitles him to a claim
to scholarsuip. lhe euucaticn must
then be by degrees, and that education
maybe practical aud beneficial, these
degrees muot be degrees of thorough
ness. Injudicious haste must be avoid
ed ; "whatever is done huniedly is never
done well." Time must be allowed the
mind to dwell on difficult principles and
abstruse problem?. But the teacher
says : "Row C3n I hope to be thorough
during a term of three montLs?" True,
this is a pertinent question, and one
which school boards and parents should
address to themselves. For the teacher
we can venture an answer. No teacher
can hope to be thorough and advance
his pupils "through the book," as many
parents seem to desire, during so short
a time as three months; nor can he
succeed in this in six mouth?, nine
months, or in a year ; it is the work of
years, Right hero the diflculty arises
with the thorough teacher. The mania
to "go through the book" is almost uni
versal; many teachers are not exempt
from its contagious poison.
The thorough teacher is employed to
teach a three months' school. Ho be
gins with first principles with elements
or rudiments ; he advances the pupils
by degrees the natural method ; the
degree method is a slow one, it is a la
borious method ; time is required to
work out the "how" and "why" ; soon
the three months have passed ; pupils
did not "get through the book" they
are yet in the rudiments. Remunera
tion is 60 comparatively insignificant
that teacher cannot afford to teach an
other term of the same school, and
school board thinks it caDnot increase
wages, perhaps cannot pay so much ;
and the thorough teacher, or the
teacher must go elsewhere to bo
come perhaps a party to the repe
tition of the same. Presently another
teacher comes along and offers his servi
ces to said school board "cheap."
"Cheapness" is the great object with
the school'hoard.and soon Mr. "Cheap"
Pedagogue is duly installed in the p'acc
of the thorough teacher. Mr. Cheap
is one of the lightning sort of teachers;
he reaches the en l-of Hie bock by the
saortcn route; principle., raW prob
lems, theorems, axioms practiracduea
tion, all, are set aside to enable th fly

bad habit of "haste study" has been

Let school boards and parents through
out the County and State take this sub
ject under serious consideration. Let
them remember that if they would
build up the character of their schools
if they would have their children, and
those in whose interests they labor, re
ceive a substantial education in our pub
lic schools if they would thus add their
mite to the well being, prosperity, and
happiness of society, they must attend
to the select.on of these teachers, who
advance the pupils by decrees; who aim
at thoroughness, and whose primary ob
ject in the school-room is, to teach.
This class of teachers can not afford to
employ their time and tax their ener
gies without a just compensation. They
cannot compete with that class who seai
occasibnally adopt the teacher's profes
sion only for the purpose of replenish
ing a depleted purse ; and they cannot
hope to be thorough io mental discipline
unless they be employed in the same
school for a longer period than one, two,
or three terms. Fidelis.
TThat Caic-s Aries is Like.
Ames is large in stature, with a head
something like a gourd, the principal
feature of attraction to a stranger being
the evident disposition of his nose and
chin to meet and shake bauds. A cold,
sellfish. grayish-blue eye contributes to
make up the countenance, which, backed
by a little mind, form the enti;e map.
The only di-positon he has evinced to
ward the oltairs of the House, a side
from the Pacific Railroad, has been an
unsuccessful attempt, in usurping the
o lico of d' o.-keep r: to keep tie
page boys steadily at work, and prevent
the pranks of those younersters. I was
once a witness of a "conflict of jurisd
iction" between the venerable Ames and
a paio. As the Hoase had adjourned,
the boys commenced a little play on
their own hook, but Mr. Ames, who has
a great aversion to anything but business,
undertook to reprove them. "Boys,"
said he, " don't you know that you are
in the presence of members of the House
of Representatives, and that such con
duct is entirely unbecoming ?" The
impressivenass of this sermon was entirely
lo.-t, however, tor one otthe boys replied :
