Self Education. The education, moral and intellectual, of every individual , must be chiefly his own work. There is a prevailing and fatal mistake upon this subject. It seems to be supposed that a young man must ba sent first to grammar school and then to cp. llege, he must of course become a scholar; and the pupil is apt to imagine he is to become the mere passive re¬ cipient of instruction, as- he is of the light and atmosphere which surrounds him. Bui this dream of indolence must be awakened to the important truth, that, if you aspire to excellence, you must become active and vigorous co-operators with your teachers, and work out your own distinction with an ardor that cannot be quenched, a perseverance that considers nothing done while anything yet remains to be done. . Rely upon it that the ancients were right. Quis que suos fortunos fabor—both in morals and intellect, we give the final shade to our own characters, and thus become emphatically tho architects of our own fo...

From the Providence Journal. The Father of Commodore Perry.. South Kingstown, March 21, 1855 There are living in the south part of this State, all in good health, ten 'persons , the children of the same parents, and the only children they ever had, whose united ages amount to seven hundred and eleven, in the following order : 81, 80, 77, 75, 73, 70, 68, 66 , 63 and 58. Their name is Tucker, and they belong to one of the most numerous families in our State. The family have for a great many years occupied a tract of laud in the western part of South Kingstown, known as Tuckertown.. There is a carious Revolutionary fact connected with this family, which few of your readers have ever heard. One of the uncles of the present children, by the name of Simeon was a quiet and conscientious farmer, who did not believe it right to do military duty, even in "the times that tried men' s souls. " A corporal was sent with a file of men to distrain his cow. A man by the name of Burt commanded th...

Amusing Duels. A work on " Duels and Dueling " has " recently been published iri" Boston, which contains far more amusement than one would expect to find in such a volume. The case of Major Hillas and Fenton, in Ireland, in which the former gentleman was shot, is an illustration. The Judge, in' summing up the ' evidence, said to the jury : "Gentlemen , it is my business lo lay down the law to you. and I will. The law says the killing a man in a duel is murder, and I am bound to tell you it is murder; therefore, in the discharge of my duty, I tell you so ; but I tell you, at the same time, a fairer duel than this I never heard of in the whole course of ' my life !" Two physicians, by the name of Mead and Woodward, fought in England, and the latter slipping, his opponent exclaimed—"Take your life. " To which the prostrate Galen replied, "Anything but your physic. " "Old Put," one of the heroes of ourrevolulion, was very odd also in his ideas of th'e code. He agreed to meet a Bri...

The Care of the Eyes. Until one begins to feel the effect of impaired vision, he can hardly estimate the value of eyesight, and consequently from ignorance or carelessness, he is apt to neglect a few simpie precautions, by the observance of which, his sight might be preserved. We are aware that the columns of a newspaper do not afford the space, nor is an editor qualified to treat scientifically of the injuries which accrue lothe organs of vision ; but certainly the knights of the sanctum ouget to have some practical experience upon artificial light, more of which they consume than falls to the lot of other men. Let us then give our readers a few- hints upon the preservation of sight, which we deduce from our own experience, and if we are incorrect, our medical friends, and particularly opticians, are welcame to our columns to correct our errors. We are not about to interfere with those who have resorted to spectacles, for the optician alone can benefit them ; but there are mult...

Value : of Wives in China. Not long since, a young English merchant took his wife with him to Hong Kong, China, where the wealthy couple were visited'by a wealthy Mandarin. The latter regarded the lady very attentively, and seemed to dwell with delight upon her movements. When she at ' length left the apartment he said to her husband in broken English,- worse than broken China. "What give you for that wifey-wife of yours V "O," replied the husband, laughing at the singular error of his visitor,, " two thousand dollars. " This the merchant thought the Chinese would consider rather a high 1 figure ;¦ but he' was mistaken. "Weil," said the Mandarin; taking out a book with an air of business, " s ' pose you give her to me ; I give you Jive thousand. " It was difficult to say whether the young merchant was more amazed than amused but the very grave and solemn air of the ChL naman convinced him that he was in sober' earnest; and he was compelled therefore'to ^ refuse ths offer with as...

THE UNKNOWN GUEST A REMINISCENCE OF THE LIFE OF WASHING TOW. One pleasant eyeing in the month of June, in the year 17—; a man was observed entering ihe borders of a wood, near ihe'Hudson river, his appearance that of a person above the common rank. The inhabitants of a country village would have dignified him with the title of " squire," and from his manners pronounced him proud; but those more accustomed to his society, would inform you that there was something like a military air about him. His horse panted as if it had been hard pushed for some miles; yet from the owner ' s frequent stops to caress the patient animal , he could not be charged with the want of humanity, but seemed to be actuated by some urgent necessity. The rider forsaking a good road for a by-path leading through the "woods, indicated a desire to avoid the gaze of olher travellers. He had not left the house where he inquired the direction of the above mentioned path more than two hours, before the qu...

NO GOD J The following verses by that sweetest of American poetesses, Mrs. Ly dia Hcntlet Sicourney, suggested by the words in the 14th Psalm of DaviJ, " The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God ," is one of the finest things in the language : ,, '•No God ! No God! " The simplest flower, That on the wild is found, Shrinks, as it drinks its cup of dew, And trembles at the sound ; " j\ T o God"—astonished Echo cries From out her cavern hour, And every wandering bird that flics Reprove the Atheist-lore. The solemn forest lifts its head, The Almighty to proclaim, The brooklet, on its crystal urn, Doth leap to grave his name. How swells the deep and vengeful sea, Along its billowy track, The red Vcsuvious opes his mouth To hurl the falsehood back. • The palm-tree, with its princly crest, The coacoa's leafy shade, The bread fruit bending to its lord, In yon far-island glade ; The winged seeds, that, borne by winds, The roving sparrows feed, The- melon on the desert sands, ...

The Teachers High Vocation.—If that man deserves well of his country,- who according to an ingenious sta-tesman 's observation, makes three spires of grass to grow where only two grew before," what praise does he merit who multiplies intelligence, who expands the slumbering faculties of the human soul, who calls forth' into exercise powers capab'leof increasingthepublic stock of wealth, of virtue and happiness, and of exalting the possessor lo his proper station of usefulness and importance?

Educational Department BY U. M'DIVTTT. The following extracts from a work entitled "Three Hours School a day, " by the late Wm. S. Crandal, we publish by request.— We do not of course , endorse the sentiment entirely, some of the ideas advanced however are good, and—in certain localities—might be beneficial. Variety is the spice of life, and we are quite willing that all sides shall be heard. Health is Wealth.—A strong arid sound body—a body capable of not only endurance, but capable of resisting external influences to disease—is a capital for life, the value of which cannot be computed in money. It is perpetual wealth—it is perpetual pecuniary independence—it is perpetual ability to aid others in the kind offices of friendship and love—a perpetual source of contentment and happiness. This, I say, is the first object of school education—of any education fit to be called education; while ths fact that it is made neither ih.3 first nor the last, in our present system, proves t...
