Judging from the following ex-,? tract onthe all-important subject of education, it is'a production of no ordinary merit; we copy it from The True Colonist, October 9: The, public institutions for affording education 'o the youth of the colony generally are wofully defective.

In these schools the youth are supposed to receive bene 'fit; when, in fact, so,far as mental culture goes, they receive none. The mechanical operation of repeating, day...
