The with recent events, bo interesting lo the public i and strictest sccresy was enjoined, thai their enemies so far as it goes, furnish an answer to the question, should not git wind of ihcir preparations! For a Why are the Morm ins, whether in New York, Mis- few days this had its desired (fleet all was peace, souri, Ohio, or Illinois, subjected to such violent op-1 unity, and spirit. Hut so far as I could learn, cither position anu uaireu, wuue me ouauers, iviiuag tt.ii- gious tenets are equally obnoxious, arc permitted to live in peace, wherever ibey locate? After the expulsion of the Mormons from Missouri, their hea l-qtiarters were established in Kirtland, Geauga Co., Ohio, some 20 miles fiom Cleveland. At the time my acquaintance with them commen ced, they had recovered from the effects of that disas ter, and their whole system or scheme was iu full 1 1. Some time previously, their leadcrs-or, operation as iney ier.ncu incni.iiieingii council, or rrcsiucn- or Jcr wcio soon in a more violent agitation, than cy had obtained ihe exclusive possession of a tract CVcr. of land tvvo miles square which was regularly sur-, At'len-th.

Tho cry was sound ed for all true believers lo flee for safety, and come up to tin- " Hill of Zion." Conventions wcie called, and oposiles" wcro actually st-nt forth by sevenlie-, whorallied tho dispersed, and hastened iho faithful lo the great gathering of "Loiter Day Sninis." On the arrival of a proselyte, wilh a hiile money, tho first thing, of course, that ho muif do, was to purchase a lot. Then, if be had any thing left, the leaders had important objects for which his means were urgently demanded s if this failed, ho was called before the High Council, where every thing was cal culated to inspire nwc a id reverence, and in the most ceremonious and solemn manner informed that a rev elation, from lbs Lord of hosts, had been made that his money was required, in some particular w ay, by his servant, ihe prophet. The poor fellow, being thus situated overawed and confounded had cither to yield up his purse, or deny bis failh, in the pres ence of men at whose call he had left bis home, and on whose veracity he had even bung his hope of sal vation, nesides, Smilh wished only to borrow iho mooey, nnd would givo bis note, with all his broth ten as sureties, if desired. Could he refuse ? I never heard of one Ihnt had tho courage to do il. This was the usual mode of receiving cash members. Proper ty was not held in common. After being thus hiitia ted, he had full liberty to take care of himself ns he saw fit, and to speculate upon his building lot, or count up the interest on his note against the high council! j Up to about 1835, tlio Mormons bad pursued n course of policy in their dealings with Ihe world's people, that had established for themselves, especially at a distance, a high reputation for punctuality and fair dealing. They had purchased small quantities of poods in New York, several times, and paid for them with a punctuality that would honor the broad brim ofaqusker. Ilerevvas ncipital onda meanj.toopre nous to be lost, nnd on this credit they swung to the full length of the rope. An nssuciaiion of Iheir principal men tho aforesaid Presidency was formed, and a very large stock of goods purchased. Itefore putting the goods into the (.tore, the leaders divided among themselves such quantity as they pleased enough to supply ibeir fam ilies (or years. I was told by a young lady a con nection 'f the Smilft's, and who at the tirno lived in Hiram's family ihnt he took seven large looking classes, and that his garret was literally filled with cloth and other articles in proportion, and that, in her own language, "it seemed almost toa bad."

The fever of speculation lit lots . . " !,. 'lnt' had abated, although the half acres of the holy city wcro sini valuc-U al from 200 to 5,000 dollars each, according to location and proximity to inc " House of the Lord." Sumo to or three thousand of Smith's followers were collected together, on the limits of the ullage, and in tho immediate vicinity They had entire control of the town elections, by n largo majority, and consequently had tho office and management of town afT.nrs. They boasted ol exer cising this power so as lo irritate the feelings of the citizens, and to retaliate upon them fur wrongs which the Mormons alleged they were subjected to while in the minority. Tho village had more the appearance of the temporary residence of a wandering multitude, than the abode uf civilized men. JCut less than 100 families passed the following winter in the most sim pic shanties that could be made with rough boards, and many others, in unfinished bui dings, scarcely more comfortable. The people were i lb They came there to sec the "glory of the Lord," not to trouble their beads or inIll3 about what they should eat or drink, or wherewithal! they should becloihcd or sheltered.

As specimens: A woman from I the province of New Hrunswick, one day walked into I the house of Joseph .Vniiih, seated herself, and very deliberately combed her hair, nn I otherwise improv ed her outward appearance. When Smith came in, she demanded, by authority of revelation, the "keys of the kingdom," and mi account of his stewardship, pariieulaily in relation to the four hundred pounds 1 that had been ruiinted fiom tho saints in that prov jiuce. .Siiutli, not so tasily dclhionrd, told her bho bad a devil, and must hae the housj. "If you put vour hands on mo," said tho sister, "'you will fall dead at my fict." Smith, notwiihstan 'ing, put her uutjof the houe, and shut iho door, when she drop ped upon her knees, and prayed long and loud that heaven would avenge her cause. Ono morning, just ' beforo daylight, a stout brother, wilh powerful lungs, i ran through the streets crying wilh a loud voice 1 "The glory of tho Lord is coming forth, awoke, je j nations uf tho earth." He said tho devil had got pos sesion uf the town, and ho was trying tu scare him out. Hut net only wcro such wild enthusiasts, as these, dissatisfied, but llicre were men ofinlluence, and even one of the 'J'leclce, who showed symptoms of a rebellious spirit. It was very cudent that sniio jibing must be dune, nnd tbr.t quickly; but what, I could not imagine. I doubted whether the tint t,,fi,iln. T . r,,,l.tna I. .... !.:tl A!

Tho surrounding inhabitants had long before determined not to be guilty of violent measures, however strong miaht be Ihe provocation jvery sagaciously perceiving that the fear of persecution from without, was the great bug bear, by which (he incongruous mass vviihin, was kept in subjection. Alld. indeed, ibn Rlrnt.Kn.tii u-n. so apparent, and had been so often tried before, thai it had but a temporary effect. The elements of, lis- 111 collision " said Jo Smilh, " vv liich shall we obey " 1 ne decision was unanimous. The bank went into immediate operation. Its history need not be detail ed. Wilh no capital but a few hundred dollars in specie, and in direct violation of the laws of the state, the only object was to dispose of the bills lo the Lest advantage. To help along the operation, they pur chased a broken bank in .Monroe, Michigan, left 11 small amount of funds :n the Hank of Lake F.rie. Cleveland, and caused notice to be extensively pub lished thai Monroe money was redeemed nl iho Cleveland bank! And so, indeed, it was, u day or two, until iho funds were gone, and a degree ofcon fidenceintho bank established. Then ihe Mormons commenced the redemption of their Jvirtln,l itt. with those nf ihe broken but resuscitated Hank of .uonroe. All tins action was accompanied wilh any quantity of bragadocia. An enormous iron chest was placed in the counting room, ond all manner of sm. nes, as to iho hoarded wealth of the Mormons, of which tho temple was often spoken as evidence, were set in moiion and trundled as far as possible. At this lime, il will bo recollected, banks generally ...tu cu.vuueu specie payments ; was it strange, llien, that tho "Kit Hand SaMv Fund BanlanjnsHtu lion" should follow suit? I can hardlv credit mv memory as to the currency this money obtained, for months, scattered as it vis by no nigiardly bands. The "Saints" with their pockets well filled started in all directions, and disposed of a very largo amount in somo manner. Thus was business and means for the winter fur- mailed, confidence in thelo'dcrs rcslorcd, nndconse. qucntly no more was heard of the threatened muiiny. wvuu in History of holy warst may not ibis wilh uuo ,1 equal jusiice be termed a holy speculation ? The leaders had undoubtedly, (mm their com mencemcnt in Kirlland. intended n . ,,t,. ,1... . porary location only-looking, i ,i,0 .ile, lo tho .a.m. m ino west, as Ihe proper field for ihm operations. Hence their policy in purchasing ,,e land as they did nn long crrilil. Ilefore I lefi Kirt. land, such intention was openly nvowed. Tho loca lion of Nauvoo had been purchased, and the Presi dency vvereeellini village lots there. The next season there was n general breaking up in Kirlland. To pre vent Ihe printing office falling into the hands of the disaffected, it was "purified by fire." Smith left se cretly, ond a general dispersion immediately succeed-ed-a great majority, however, went to the new city of N'auvoo. Tho five thousand dollar city lots, ihe buildings (hereon, Iho streets that had been graded and fenced, all reverted back to tho original owners, or to those to whom their mortgages had been assign- 1 -. -11 .in ""V 0" "" f M""n"y ' bclloo,,'ou'f- lh, too, by un- believers !

During the summer of 1837, and but a short time before ho left Ohio, Juscph Smith was arrested at the suit of a citizen of Kirlland, based upon iho disclo sures of two individual Mormons, for instigating an attempt upon his life. The name of ono of theso wit nesses is S. V. Dsnton, that of the other I have forgotten, and am not positive! as to the name of the prosecutor, but think it was Kimball. Dcnlon had been a high priest was a printer, and worked in the office during tho winter I was in Kirtland. He is now, or was a year ago, a proprietor of a nowspapcr in Michigan. The other witness washy trade a black smith, lieforo commencing the suit, they both ngreed as to the facts to which they could testify. The cause was tried before tho county court of Geauga county. Denton tesl'ficd that he and the blacksmith, at the instigation of Smith, Denton, then being but a boy, and conscientiously supposing bo should do fSid service by putting a persecuturout of the way went, aruvd with pistols and knives, near the dwelling of Kimball, and laid in wait for thcpurpocof despatch ing him as ha returned from some place wheru be had been seen that day. The object was not accomplish ed, as the man had returned sooner than was antici pated. The blacksmith, when called upon the stand, unexpectedly refused to testify on the ground of crim inating himself, and was excused by the rourt. The ' , , V" """" "' u ...,9 one., ue.u.i cd the circumstances of tho case, from thecourso pur sued by the other witness, and from some other tri fling corroborating circumstances, there is not a doubt in my mind that these individuals wcie induced by Smith to attempt, and actually did attempt, the aw ful crime of murder. This attempt upon the life of a comparativily ob scure citizen of Ohio, 1 havo never seen exen noticed iu our public journal., while n similar attempt upon t lie life of Governor Hoggs, of Mo , which, from what I luard of their fu lings towards the man, I havo no doubt was instigated by the Mormons, cr atcl nn ex citement lint Ins threatened the peacoof iho Slate, and may not bo satisfied and quieted even with the death of the prophet and bis brolher. A JOUR. PRINTKlt. MR. CLAY'S SPEECH, LCLlVLltED IN T1IK CITY OF RALEIGH, AriilL 13lh, 1811. An Uxlract relating lo the TariJJl Pulicy. This is a groat practical and administrative question, in which there is happily now prevail, ing among the Whigs, throughout the whole Union, a degree of unanimity as unprecedented f, as it is gralilying. From Now OrVans lo this . . . . . . doe es nut assent to the justice and expediency nl I a principle of a tariff lor a revenue, wilh (lis- criminations for protection. On this interesting I r..itn... . : : ... -.1 iiui--.-utii, tuiiiMi -..iiiti'ii", 11 is tiiv itirutisu iu mi- Jruss V(1U, wit, ,1C mIuM fa,ej('n BncorU ty, and with as little reserve as if I were before an auilience in the State of Kentucky. I have long given to this subject the most impartial and deliberate consideration, of which my mind is capable. I believe that no great Nation ever has existed, or ever can exist, which docs nut derive even within itself, essential supplies (if food and raiment and the means of defence. I recollect no example to the contrary in ancient cr modern times-. Although Italy itself did nut alliird all those supplies to Ancient Rome, the deficiency was drawn from her subjugated prov-iticc.--. Great lintain, although her commerce encompasses the world, supplies herself mainly from the little island under her immediate do minion. Limited and contracted as it is, it fur. nUlics her with bread and other provisions for the whole year, with the exception only of a few days; and her manufactures, not only sup. ply an abundance of raiment and moans of de fence, but afibrd a vast surplus for exportation to foreign couutiies. In considering Ihe policy of introducing and establishing maniilacliiresiu our country, it has always appeared to 110 that we should take a broad and rr ensivo view, looking to seasons of war, as well ns to peace, and legarding the fu- tine, as well as the past and ll.o present. Na - tion il existence is not to bu measured by the standard of individual life. liut it is rmiallv true, both of nations and individuals-, that when I . Besidee I'm advantage resulting from domes, it is necessary, wo must submit lo temporary l'u minufaclures iu producing an American and present privations, for the sake of future and competition with tlio European competition, permanent benefits. Even if it wero true, as I augmenting ihe supply of manufactured articles, think I shall bo able to show it is not, that tho!,ml lending consequently to a reduction of pri encouragement of domestic manufactures would c'-'e' io ""l S,- advantage, great as that ii. produce some sacrifices, they would bo coinpen- ' double market is produced both it the ;;iir. sated, and more than counterbalanced, by ulti- j c,'."c "f fabrics for consumption, and in the ! mate advantages secured, combining tivether "' productions of Agriculture. ,tud hmv supe- seasons nf peace aud of war. If it wore Irue that the policy of protection enhanced the price of couiiiioditics, it would be found that their cheapness, prevailing iu a time of peace, when the foreign supply might bo npwn to U-, would be no equivalent for tho dearnnss in a period of war, when that supply would bu cut off Irogi us. I am not old enough io recollect Iho sull'erings of the soldiery and population of the United Hutes during the war ol the Independence : but history and tradition tolls us what they wore ; they inform us what lives wero sacrificed, what discomforts existed, what hardships our unclad and unshod soldiors bore, what were retarded or paralyzed. Even, during the last war, all of us who are old enough to remember it, know what difiicullics, and a', what great cost, tho necessary clothing aud means of defence wcro obtained. And who does not feel con scious pridu and patriotic satisfaction that theso sufferings, in any future war, will bo prevented, or greatly alleviated, by the progress which her iiitant manufactures have already made. If (Im policy of encouraging them wisely, moderately, and certainly, be persevered in, the day is not lar distant when, resting upon our own internal resources, we may be perlectly 6ureof an ahun. daut supply of all our necessary wants and, in this respect, put loreign powers and foreign wars at defiance. I know lhat. from extreme suffer. ing and the necessity of tho case, manufacture!-, in the long run, would arise and sustain tliein selves, without any encouragement from Gov. urninent, just as a i unaided infant child would learn to risu, lo btand, and lo walk ; but In bolh instances, great distiess may bo avoided, and essential assistance derived I10111 the kir.dness of the parental hind. Tho advantages arising from the division of tho labor of the population of-a country are too manifest to need being much dwelt upon. 1 think the advantage ofa hnmc, as well ai for. eign Markets is equally manifest ; hut tin homo market can only be produced by diversified pur suits, creating subjects uf exchanges, at home as well as abroad. If one nortiou of tho noun- lalionof a country be engaged in t'te business ' lnanufi":luri"2. It must derive ils means of subsistence, from the agricultural products of the country ill oxchane Tor their fab., cs Tbr 1 amkkets undek a TAF.IFF. s ,. . . 1 he great law whitm regulates tho price of commod.tiC, i of supp y and de naml -, the price exceeds tlio demand, tlio price falls ; if tliu demand exceed the supply the price rises. Tins law will bu found invariably true. Any augmentation of supply is beneficial to the con sumer; but, by establishing manufactures in the United Suites nil additional supply is crea ted. Airain, another principle, universally ad- milted tu bo beneficial to consumption, is tlio principle of competition. If Europe alone sup- ply the American consumption of manufactures, ! ..tiii'fiu tin, unj'ijr a iiiuiiuJuij' ill Mink alii.)'!-' That monopoly, it is true will bo subject to the competition which may exist in Europe ; but it 1.'. ......... .... ......... n t .. l.t ... ........ ' would be still restricted to that competition, Ilv the cxisloiiccmf manufactures-, in the United State?, an additional competition is created, nnd this new competition enters the American Mar-, hot, contending for it Willi previous European I conipetit 'rs. The result is-, an increase in the aggregate of supply, and a consequent reduction in price, ttut it has' been argued that the la. brics manufactured in America take tho place only nf so many which had boon before manufac tured in Europe ; that there is no greater con sumption in ronseiiiioncu of the home mantifac lure than would exist without it ; and tint it is immaterial to the consumer w bother the theatre nf manufacture be Europe or tho United State". Hut I think this is an cxtremly contracted and fallacious view of the subject. Consumption is greater in consequence nf iho existence of man ufactures, at home. They create a demand for lalor, which would not exist without them, and tlio employment of labor cieatea an ability to consume, vv liu h would not exist without it. (low could the American labor employed 111 minli facturos, at home, supply ils consumption of European conimnd.ties, if it were deprived of that employment 1 What means nf purchase would it piw-soss ! It is iu vain to point to agri culture: for every department of tint is already producing siipeiabumianlly. It cannot be ques. tinned that the chief ctusc of the! reduced price of Cotton in the excess of production. The price of it would rise, if l"si wero produced, by ilivei tniLf a portion of the labor employed 111 its cultivation to some other branch of industry. This new pursuit would fuiiiish now subject' of exchange, and those who might embark 111 it, as well a tho.-o who would continue in the growth of Cot'ou, would he both baneliltcd by 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ,1 1 exchanges. The day will coum and is not far distant, when the South will feel an nn peralivi! neies.ty voliiutari'y to make such a di vers on of a por ion of ,ts labor. Considering the vast water power and other facilities of manufacturing, now wasting and uu- I employed, at Mm south, and its possession at home, of tho choice of the raw 111 Unrial, I believe the day will come when tho Cotton region will he the greatest manufacturing regiouof Cutlou in the world. The power nf consuming manufactured arti c.lus being increased, in consequence nf the do-ine-itic establishment of 111 inuf.ictures, by the wages nf labor which they employ, and by the wealth w Inch they create, there is an increase also in tho uc and cnnstimpation nf'Cottnn and other raw materials. Tu the extent of that in. tere.-t, the Cotlon grower is directly and posi tively benefitted by the location uf manufactures al home iii.-teadol abroad. Rut suppive it wore true that the shifting to a certain extent, of the theatre of the manu factures, from foreign countries to our own, did nut increase consumption at all, and did not augment tho demand for Cotton, there would bo no just ground uf complaint with the Cultnn planter, and tho most ho could say is-, that it would bo a matter of indifiurcnri; to him. ,111 tint would happen to him would be, ;i substi tution of a cerlain number of American cus tomers, for an equal number of European cus tomers. Hut ought it to be, can it be, a matter of indifference to him, whether any portion of Ins inllow-citizons 111 Hie United Mates are 111 a state of prosperity or ndvursiiy .' If, without prejudice to him, his own countrymen can ac quire a pirtoftho wealth which arises out of the prosecution of inaniifacturinj industry, instead of Ihe foreigner, ought ho not to rejoice at ill Is it to him a matter of no consequence that a certain amount of wealth, created bvunnufac- turos shall be in his own country, instead of being 111 foreign cuu itres ! If here, i s intlu. once and rffec's will be felt, duo'tly or indi. rectly, in all the departments of human busi ness, and in a greater or less ilegr'c in all parts of the country. It becomes a clear addi tion to the aggregate wealth of the nation, in creasing its icsources, and forming a basis of tax. ir""""'1 T 111 u-01 war or poaco " uoccssary. A "Ari:r-T- 1 n"r ls llle '"'y n,ll0r murkoWn tlio con dttions of ils proximity, its boing under our con trol, ami its exemption from thu contingency of war ! Il has been argued, however, that wo sell no more linn vvo should do if wo wero deprived of tho homo maikct. I have shewn that to bu otherwise. Tlio importance of opening nuw markets is universally admitted. It is an uhiect of Ihe policy of all nations. If vvo could open a 1 new market for '1(10,000 bales of cotton with any foreign power, should wo not gladly embrace it! bvory one owns the benefit which arises out ot various markets. All who reside iu the nuigh- borhood. af largo cities or market towns, are sensible nf the advantage. It is said that our nnnufactures absorb only about 100.000 bales of cotton, which is a very smill part of the total crop, liut suppose that wore thrown upon the market of Liverpool, already overstocked and glutted! It would sink the price far below what it now is. Franco consumes also about 100,000 hales. If thu market of Havre were closed and that quantity were crowded into the market of Liverpool, would not the effect bu ru inous to tho cotton grower! Our American market is growing, annually increasing', and, if the policy of the cuuntry can only become firm ly fixed, the imu will come, I h ivo no doubt, when the manufacture of cotton in the United States will exceed that of England. I do not desire to see any market closed, domestic or foreign. I think it our interest to cheriili and cultivate all. Uui I believe it to be our indis pensable duly lo afford proper and reasonable encouragement to our own. Hut it must bo borne in mind that, although cotton is by far the most important of our agr. cultural products, it is not Iho only one. Whore should vvo find a market for our Indian com, if it were not for the existence of our inaiiufacto. rios! Wo Rhnuld ubs..lulely have none.

Il was hut the other day, I heard one of these freo trarlo orators addressing an audience, and depicting, in the most plaintive and dolclul lcnn, the extreme burdens and op. pres-ive actions arising out of the abominable Tariff.

Those ingenious and indefatigable theorists, not only hold all facts and experience in con tempi, but they arc utterly inconsistent with tlieiii-elve'f.

The Government wishes to derive a certain amount of revenue from foreign imports. Let us sup. po-e the total annual amounts of imports to be 8100,000,000 anil the total annual amount of revenue lo be raisid from it, to ho S'-'O.OOII.OOO. Is it at all material, whether that S'iO.ODO.OOO be spread, in the form of duties, equally over tlio whole, lliu.wi'j.lKtu, or that it be drawn from some 50,000,tlt)0 or more of the imports, leaving the rest free of duty ! In point of fact, such, has boon the case for several years. Is not a compensation found, or the duly paid upon any article, by the eveinptiou Iroin duty of another article: Take the wearing apparel ofa sin-rlo individual, and suppose you hive a duty of 8- to raise upon it ; is it of any consequence to him whether you l.ivy the whole 82 upon all parts of his wearing apparel equally, or levy it exclu. sivcly upon his coit nud his shirt, leaving the other articles freo! And if, by such discrimin ations as I have described, without prejudice to the consumer, you can raise up, cherish, and sustain domestic m iiiufar.tiires, increasing the wo 1 It Ii ami prosperity, and encouraging the labor of tho nation, ought it not to bo done ! 1 the result 1 widely different.

Iu respect 10 the tariff (hern arc two schools ho'dmg- opposite and extreme doc trmcs. According to one, perfect freedom ju our foroign trado with no, or very low duties, ought to prevail. According to the other, the restrictive policy ought, on many articles, 10 bo pushed, by a high and exorbitant Tariff, lo the point of absolute prohibition. Neither pirly can hold itself up as an unerring standard of right and wisdom Fallibility is the lot of all 111011, and the wisest know how little they do know. Tho doctrine of freo trade is a concession to Foroign l'ovvers, without an equivalent, to the prejudice of homo industry. Not only vv.lhuul equivalent but in tho faro of thuir high duties, restrictions and prohibitions applied to Amen, can products, by furoigu powers, our rivals.jeal. tins of our giowth and anxious to impede our onward progress.

It is a cuneesn'on to those who aro bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh, and who in somo other beneficial term do miko equivalent concession to us. It is still mare , it is a concession by the whole to the whole ; for ovory part of the country possesses a capari. ty lo uianufacturJ, and every part of the coun try more or lets docs manufacture. Some parts have advanced farther than others, but the pro. "ress of all is forward and onward.

And yet that Irish peasant, in addition to the expenses and outlays above enumera ted, had a church lax to pay, and to be at the expense of purchasing his own seed, and maintaining n family of four besides himself and wife.

Br.lVi Weekly Messenger, Thn Globs says tho election of Polk se cures the Immediate Annexation of Texas. True enough. The tob Is lo secure the flee. lion of Polk. A. 1. Tribune, will be so also. It is the business ol a wisu system of education to remedy this evil. 1 lie young should lie tauulit to entertain a healthful self-respect, which lies half-way I ('tween fatso humility and foolish pride. No less should a generous desire nnd digni fied pursuit of distinction bo inculcated, which again keeps the middle course be tween a stupid indifference to thu opinions of others, and a vain-glorious passion fur shining. In these respects the habit of the popular mind will present no small obstacles to education. Thu virtues of active or business life, by means of which property is acquired, aro industry and economy, midway between drudgery and a passion for dissipation, and avarice and prodigality. Thn young should be taught to value la bor and property as means for ihe supply of wants, and never to regard them as the end or the object of life. The importance of these considerations to our thrifty and money-making community is frequently recog nized by writers anu public speakers who have the good of the public nt heart ; but still the mighty throng rushes on in the pur suit of vvealih, and the voice of the preacher is scarcely heard amid the buzz of the eager multitude. It behooves, then, the educators of youth to assail this evil at its root. '11 connexion with industry and economy, the young should ho lialiiliuled lo a lovo of order, which comprehends regularity and punctuality, and occupies middle ground between rude insubordination and a listless pliublenoss. indicating a total absence of an independent will. ln theso highly important concerns of hu man culture, the example- of the educator should furnish the most suitable and efficient process of education. Without this neither instruction nor admonition will be of any avail. The earlier you begin wilh habitua ting the young lo these virtues, the more easily and completely will you succeed. Bad habits in these respects, are not easily shaken off in later life. To the proprieties of life, which compre hend personal cleanliness, posture in sitting or standing, nnd to politeness, thu young should ho accustomed in early childhood ; but nature should never be sacrificed to thn conventional rules of politeness, or, in other words, artificial forms or affected manners should never usurp the place of that grace fulness of deportment, thai sttidiousness to gratify and anticipate the wishes of others, to promote by even the most trilling atten tions to their comfort and enjoyment, which are dictated by 1111 amiuhlo disposition, or more correctly, by a thoroughly and well educated heart. Iu this particular also, px amplu and habit will bo effectual. But, from what has just been said, it is evi dent examples should bo chosen with care. The notion that by with society the young should ho educated for society, is an absurd prejudice. It is a business of good education 10 raise the young above th follies and caprices of fashionable life, and to give them strength and independence ot character, to adopt such manners as are dic tated by a sound judgment and an elegant taste, however those who are slaves to con ventional rules may sneer. Tho design of ibis general culture for lifo is insensibly to habituate the 011ng lo thoso virtues which ronslitufo the basis not only of the culture necessary lo any particular pro fession, but of every higher dcvclopeniont of character. As the stibjret here discussed is, in gener al, well understood, we have considered ourselves justified in treating it quite briefly : the ntoio so, us it is one on which much valuable matter may be found in tho writings of Dr. Franklin, Blair, and others who havo labored for the general improvement of men. Female Education. Hannah Moro has truly remarked that "to kmtw how to grow old gracefully" is one ot iho rarest attain ments of life. "When admirers fall away," continues Miss More, "and fl allerers become mini', the mind will he driven to retire into itself; and if it finds no entertainment at home, it will be driven back aeain upon iho world with increased force. Yel, furgelling ibis, do we not seem 10 educate our daugh ters exclusively for the transient period of youth, when it is to malum life we ought lo look 1 Do wu not eilucile them for a crowd and not fur themselves ? fur show, and not lor usu J" Tlio following sensible remarks upon this subject, we abstract from the 'Port Foli..:" " When a man of senro comes to marrv, it is a companion he wants not an artist. It is not merely a creature who can paint and play, sing and dance: it is a woman who can comfort and counsel him j one who can reason and reflect, and ft-H and judge, and discourso nnd discriminate ; one who can as sist him in his alfurs, lighten his sorrows, purify his joys, strengthen his principles, and cducato his children.
