excuse presents iiself for his absence. Whatever may Je the imperfectioris-of our school tuilion this defect is rather to be attributed lo a want of taste and consequent neglect of practice of grown up individuals than to any defect in their elementary training. - There may -be a di(ki-.ucy of good models; but the main evil arises from the uutquul value which seems to be attached to good reading as com- pared with music dancing painting aod other fashionable acquirements. Why it should be so we can discover no good cause but on the contrary see many substantial reasons why reading aloud should be cultivated as one of the most vuscful and attractive of domestic accomplish- ments. 'To young ladies for example the habit of reading aloud has much to recommend it. As mere exercise it is highly beneficial on account of the strength and vigor which it confers on the chest and lungs; while the men- tal pleasure to be derived therefrom is one of the most de- lightful that can adorn the famil...

In some of the Soutbprn States this evil is obviated by planting the potatois under straw or loose litter. They are first planted in hills about three feet ap-trt and covered with earth two inches deep a layer of straw seven or eight inches deep is then strown upon them and a little earth is sprinkled oruhis with a hoe to prevent the wind from blowing it away. This straw pro- tects the potatoes from the sun keeps the ground loose and moist and also by its decomposition affords nourishment to the plants. The potatoes raised in this manner are far supe- rior to those raised by any other method and the crop is very abundant. It has been tru d with complete success in this neighborhood and would doubtless succetd well in any par of Texas. The Virginia planters often plant rows...
