The science of Music (like that of
many others), has not received the atten
tion which its importance demands ; for
not a few look upon many of the Arts
and Sciences as of small moment when
compared with the "Almighty Dollar,"
which appears to cling to them with the
tenacity of wax. Not a few who sus
tain the relation of parent, allow their off
spring, or those committed to their charge,
to grow up in a state of ignorance on the
subject of Music, even though they may
possess the advantage of an efficient in
struetor. How many voices are left uncultivated
and in a rude state, which might, under
proper management, even vie with that of
a Catherine Hays, or compare favorably
with the almost superhuman strains of the
Sweedish Nightengale, whose melody has
Wn the admiration of the music-loving,

Is it right, that there bhould be so much
negligence manifested in reference to a
science which carries with it so many
Every one has it in their power to lie
come a vocalist, if the proper means are
employed, and at the proper time. Now,
when is the time, ami w hat are the means

time to instill the lirst principles i. when
the mind is pliable and susceptible of im
pression, never to be cra-ed. Let it form
a regular Miuly in every school, from the
highest College fb the lowest District
School in the land, and ere long our coun
try will be noted for its musical talents, as
it is now for its Liberty. Then we might
expect some Moarts and Hoethnvens, the
productions of whose giant minds will long
continue to live in the songs of their na
tive land, as that of the memory of the
"Father of his Country" will be cherished
in sweet remembrance by every true heart
of this trlorious Republic, over which the
music of the stars and stripes have long
echoed and will wave, as "the laud of the
free and the home of the brave."
We have said that the science of music
slmuht form a regular study in every
school, and we again reiterate it, know
ing the happy results that would How from
such a course. Music alleviates labor
and cheers the heart. When the mind
has been overtasked by some intricate
problem in mathematics, or tin? transla
tion (if some of the more obscure texts of
Greek or Latin, how rcfrvhing to join in
full chorus in some enlivening melody,
and. fi f the time, throw aide the more
dull and difficult studies with which the
mind has been burdened for hours. Or,
when stilly twilight steals on, after the
labors of a summer day are o'er, to gather
round in a social group, and join in com
mon chorus in some favorite melody.
Does this not revive does it not enliven
does it not create a thirst for more
sweet strains ?
And when the long w inter nights close
in when the earth is mantled in a carpet
of purest white, and the .shrill blasts of the
storm-king 'are ever und iinon chiming
the reipiiem of the former, w hich has just
been wafted on the passing gale, when
without there is nothing to be heard save
fierce bowlings of the wind, is it not then
recreation, w hen housed up, to surround
the Mazing hearth, and break forth in
those harmonious strains which charm the
intuitive ear, and bid the clouds of des
pondency disappear which have, as it
were, dimmed the mental vision, and
cause the deepening gloom to bo trans
placed by the cheerful and awakening
countenance, as tho a beam of sunlight
had found its way through the darkness
by which the domicil was enveloped.
'Tis music of this sort which can alone
recall pleasing reminiscences, and carry
us back to scenes replete with bright anti
cipations, tho' a curtain is now drawn be
tween, and some of the voices that used
to chime are hushed in death, while
others are sejiarated by rugged moun
tains, rolling rivers, and broad extended
We look forward, and hope the day is
not far distant, when music, both as a sci
ence and as an art, will receive the atten
tion which its importance demands. Not
that it demands more attention than many
other of the sciences, but we live in a pro
gressive age, in an age when literature,
science and art are rapidly advancing to
ward their acme, and among the pleasing
arts wo class Music No. 1.; one in which
tho amateur finds scope to range, and
points in which to excel ; one in which
nature is not a silent and inattentive audi
tor ; one which does not debar the unfor
tunate whose eyes are closed to the light
of day and the beauties of nature, but
rather invite him to participate and call
forth all that is noble in his nature ; one
before which the wild beasts of the forest
are led forth as lambs ; one w hich has a
tendency to enervate, enliven aiid cheer.
Its powers are as various as the objects
which engage it. Is tho occasion one of
sadness, we go to the long list of minors,
and there call forth one to proclaim the
death-knell, or portray the feelings of the
forsaken, the dejected or the melancholy.
Does the solemnity of the Church make a
demand, the storehouse is full ample and
adequate. Does the gay circle of youth,
with bright and cheerful countenance,
wish for a strain to add joy to their mirth
fulness, or melody to their merry-ringing
laugh, take tho major key and unlock the
repository in which the musical composers
of both ancient and modern times have
stored their productions, .and they have
enough and to spare.
Any emergency can be met by drawing
from the musical reservoir. May each
and every one draw frequently and copi
ously from this fount, until the strains of
music shall echo and re-echo from every
hill and grove of the country diversified.

reports everything quiet and prosperous
throughout the Territory. Emigration is
pouring in from all quarters, and the
country settling up very fast. The Indians,
with whom treaties have been made and
reserves assigned, are disposed to reside
on their reservations, and have this year
done considerable in raising for themselves
corn for the winter's supply. The Paw
nees and Puma, who inhabit the lands
in the western and northwestern parts of
the Territory, never having made treaties
with the United States, and consequently
are receiving no annuities from the gov
ernment, are a little disposed to make
some trouble by claiming some of the lands

The Belfast Mercury gives the follow
ing in relation to printers:
"From high to low, they are the same
careless, light-hearted, clever, well-informed,
reckless fellows, knowing how to
act better than they do nothing m times
everything if the occasion requires, or
if the fit takes them. No sooner are they
comfortable in one town than they make
tracks for another, even though they
travel on "hair space" means. And to
what will they not turn their hands?
We have seen,' says an American Edi
tor, 'one and the same individual of the
craft, a minister in California, a lawyer
in Missouri, a sheriff in Ohio, a boatman
on a Western Canal, sailing u piivuteer,
an auctioneer in New York, and a press
man in a great printing office. Nor are
these characteristics of the printers con
fined to any one country they are every
where tho same. We have met them as
lecturers, actors, traveling preachers, ven
triloquists, in fact everything. We have
met on tram)) in this country, members of
this roving profession from all parts of
tho globe frenchmen, Spaniards, Por
tugese, Germans and Swedes and all
apparently as much at home as in their
own country. Ardent lovers of liberty,
king-craft and priest-craft find but little
favor in their eyes. They are always
with the people. When the Chartist ex
citement was raging in England, the most
eloquent leaders in the movement were
printers. When the barricades were
raised in Paris in '4S, the compositors
cast their type into bullets and fired them
at the royalists' troops. When the Ame
ricans were at war with Mexico, General
Taylor's regiment was composed almost
entirely of printers, and they were the
bravest of his troops."

Some time ago a girl who lives in ono
of the best and richest families in this

carry New Hampshire. Last evening,

she wheeled with her own li finds on a
wheelbarrow the barrel of shavings to his
door, alxiut the eighth of a mile. If the
public had known of the event, doubtless
the Amoskeag Veterans, the City Guards,

out to receive the girl with a barrel of
