An Educatrbnal: Essay In broaching this subject, we feel a certain degree of embarrassment, because we do not know what to say that has not been repeated over, at least a thousand and one times. We wouldnot review- the thousand and second time this worried theme, were we not exceedingly impressed with its importance in our. neighborhood particularly. We do not even hopo that we can present anything new to tho attention of our readers ; but, we do hope that our vesture of old truths will be so fortunate as to attract some regard to this subject. The country generally is fully alivo to its importance; but while all around us is moving for-' ward to a state of improvement, we fear wo' are that part ol the stream near the shore that rolls sluggishly along, uncaring for the swift middle current. It is an accredited axiom that man's nature differs from that of the lower order of animated creation , insomuch that his powers of mind do not exert themselves intuitively in ways that hav...

, The Exemption Law. We give below the act recently passed by the Legislature, to exempt three hundred dollars' worth of personal property-from sale or execution or distress for rent.- .It has been erroneously called the "Homestead Exemption Bill,".from the fact that It was zealously supported by Captain Small, the author of the Homestead bill, and because the amount of exemption in both acts appeared, at first sight, to be the same. The Homestead bill was designed to exempt real estate not exceeding, in annual value, the sum of three hundred dollars. It wis reported adversely upon by the Judiciary Committee of the Senate, and did not become a law. The act now published was introduced into the Senate by JUr. Johnson, of Erie.

The Weather. The weather on the 18lh inst. was out of all propriety. While it Was simply cold, and great coats and p inched noses, were of the general wear, thero was no lack of excuses for the nipping and unseasonable visitor. Icebergs were coming down the Lehigh, thought many, and the chilled atmosphere is owing to that cause — but a whoie army of icebergs could not, so lar as we are familiar with the records of tho weather, produce such a snappish, violent and flurrying Buow-stortn as that which raged Wednesday afternoon and night. It came down with a sort of Lapland-witch ferocity, as if it know the dismay it caused, and gloried in its power to create discomfort. It was no merely temporary gust, but a Steady and protracted down-come, showing amp lepess of snowy treasure in the clouds, and giving rise to distant and further suspicions that it might not be a thing altogether impossible to jingle sleig h-bells once more, and draw out the sleig hs from the retirement and the d...
