COMMUNICATION. NO. II. Mr. Editor : In your Inst I pave nn ex 'tract from Mod. do Stncl's Germany, rx 'hibiting the national fondness for music, and their skill in it. It will nnturnlly be 'inquired wlint this love of music and uni 'vcrsal cultivation of it, docs for Germany whether it improves national character nntl odds to tho 6iim of individual and social happiness ? Instead of attempting to answer this question, I Bhall present somo fact? nnd suggestions to your readers. In look ing over the report on Public Instruction in Prussia by M. Victor Cousin, the schol ar, Ihc philosopher, and the legislator, to 'Count do Montalivct minister of public in 'etruction in Franco, I find singing classed "with reading, as a branch of instruction In oil ecIiooIb. The reasons of it may be 'found in the following extracts from ihc ubovc nomcd work, "Singing is introduced 'to improve Ihc voices of tho children, and to elevate their hearts and minds, to per fect and ennoble tho popular tongs and church music (.r psalmody." "The singing Icesons shall be attended by all the pupils not only with a view to form them to that art, but to qualify them to assist in the scr. vices of the church with propriety nntl sol cmnity, by singing tho psalms or choral music with correctness and judgment." The discipline of the schools is very se. verc. Thus music, so natural and so dear to tho Germans, ia cultivated with great ossiduity; but the government docs not -Buffer the students to regard this require 'ment as a eonrce of mere amusement, nor allow them to display it in public concerts, which though innocent, arc of a light char. ncier. 11 permits muni uj jum juuni.ijr church music alone. I find this restriction in a ministerial circular of the 8th of June 1014. "Music ought not to be cultivated as n mere gratification of a sense ; it ought to help to ennoble and refine the heart, and to 'form tho'trmral taste." "In primary nor mal schools, music ought not, nny more Hhan reading, to bo the principal object ; il must be regarded and treated os a means towards a higher end, which is, education and moral culture." "The mnsl immediate and Ihc most important aim of all instruc. 'lion, is to train up and complete the man; to ennoble his heart ant! character, to awa 'ken the energies of his soul, and 10 render 'him not only disposed, but able, to fulfil his duties. In this view alone can knowledge and talents profit n man; otherwise, in plruc'.ion, working upon sterile memory and talents purely mechanical, can he if no high utility." Whatever i- believed to con tribute to litis perfect in of character, the) Germans have introduced ihlo tin ir niition. nl system of instruction, one distinct and prominent branch of which we havo seen 'to be "vocal and instrumental music. C. Notion or A Maniac. Mnumec, (O.) Advertiser. lolls us of a flighty merchant in that city, who imagines that the Rev. Mr. Burns, a Presbyterian clorjiyman, is no other than his Satanic Mnjes'y himself This antipathy to the reverend gentleman, it is said proceeded from the fact that Air. Burns was prrs cut at the death of ihc un fortunate man's wife some 15 months ago. nntl was first to nnnounce to the husband that her spirit had left its earthly tene ment. Since lhat afflicting event, the gen tleman has been perfee'ly rational on every other subject, except this devilish notion relative to the clergyman. How admira bly does this illustrate the beautiful lines of Shakespeare "Vet the first brhtgprof unwelcome mews, Ilalh but it losing office, and hi tongue Sounds ever after lik'i ;t sullen knell, Remembered, tolling tome departed friend." A Washington correspondent of ihc New York Courier and inquirer, has the follow. ing scrap of gossip. An elopement extraordinary took place here this day, which occasioned great ex citement among the parlies. A young and beautiful creature, the daughter' tf a Che valier d'intluslrie, ran oway with another of the same liberal prnlossiun occasioning I he 'deepest grief to her ofilicted parents. The 'father of the young lady was literally do tanged for some time, declnring, with pis tolsin his hands, that no d d gambler should marry his dnughter. llulbro the parents, however, could overtake the delin qucnte, the hymcuial knot was tied, and the happy lovers were made one. Most Four. Vit.i.a.nv. On the night of tho last Fast, some villain went onto the Farm of Saml I). Torrcy, in the town of Milbury, with an nxu or' hatchet, and cut down over 100 choico Peach, Pear, Cherry, and other Iruit trees, in the or chard; and all the grape vines in the gar tlcn. Tho trccB were from three to fivo years old, and they had been selected with great care, and cost tho owner over $1000. The Bcoundrol richly merits exemplary punishment. lie ought to be confined in a solitary cell, never to look on hud or bloBsom acain until his crime is fully ex piated. Host. Trans, Buried Ai.ive.- A correspondent of the East India Magazine relates a singular ac count of a man who suffers himself to be buried for weeks and months, by any per son who will pay him handsomely for the exploit. The first timo tho writer saw him viae at Jaisulmer, in the East Indies, where lie wbb dug out alive from a grave, o tomb, in which he had boon voluntnrilv in terrcd a month. He is about 30 years of age, and travcla about tho country suller. iu" himself to bo bur ied for a week or a month, or less timo, in proportion an he is paid. He is sewn up in a bag of cloth, and tho cell is lined with masonry, and floored with cloth, that tho wild ante out! other Insects may not easily bo oblo to mo lest him. Tho place in which ho was bur. led at .Taisnlmcr is a small building about 12 leet by fl feel, built of stone; and in tho floor was a hole about three I'cct long, two and a hnlffcol. wide, nntl the snmo depth, or perhaps n yard deep, in which ho was placet! in o silting posture, sewed up in his shroud, with his foot turned inwards low. ards the stomach, and his hand also point, oil inwards towards tho chest. At tho ex. piration of a full mouth, the walling up of tho door was broken and tho buried man dug out of tho grave. Ho was token out in a perfectly senseless state, his eyes clos. ml, his hands cramped and powerless, his stomach shrunk very much, and his teeth jammed so fast together, (hat they were torcco to open ms mount wun uo uuu inn. turnout to pour a little water down his throat. He gradually recovered the use of his senses, and the uso of his limbs. At first ho was laughed at for nn irnposler, but a Cornet of n British Regiment proved his powers of abstinence by enclosing him without food in n wooden chest for thirteen days, when ho was taken out alive. Pork Trade. Tho Cincinnati Chronicle savi, that not moro than two thirds of the Pork exported from the West is slaughter ctl at lhat place. Value this year from Cincinnati is over three million!! of dollars. Tolal number of hors slaughtered this year in that quarter 130,000. At Cincin nati 105.000. Shocking'! A dwelling house at Wes tern Bay, on the island of Newfoundland, was recently burned down and six children perished in the flames ! ! ! ! Shipwrecks. During the year 1036, there were lost, on the coast of tho United States, 5G ships and barques, 97 brigs, 121 schooners, 12 sloops, 20 boats, & 820 lives Hanks. The whole number of Banks in Massachusetts, in 1001, was six, having an aggregato capital of jg3,050,000. In December, tsiau, the number hail increased to one hundred and thirty eight, and tho capital to gl0,(130,000. A young wife remonstrated with her hus band, a dissipated spendthrift on his conduct My love,' said ho, 'I am only like tho prod, igalson, I shall reform by and by.' 'And I will be like the prodigal son too,' she re plied, 'for I will arise and go to my father ;' and accordingly off she went. At a debating club not far off, the ques Hon was discussed, whether there is more happiness in tho possession or pursuit of an object? and decided no doubt in favor of the following;--'Mister President,' said the orator, 'sposc I was courtin' a gal, and she was to run away, and I was to run after tier, woultl'nt 1 be happier when I cotched her than when I was ruiinin nrter her?' A Frrncli officer, quarrelling with n Swiss, reproached him with his country's vice of fighting on either side for money, while wc frenchmen, said lie, ' tight lor honor." Yes, sir," replied he, "every one fights for that lie most wants." .n'otici:. The Riirliiision Teiiincraiire Society aio noli- lied m men tit die Couit House on Tliursd.ty next, II 7 n'ClocK r. M.
