Dear ccntlenif n, between the ages of "Is and
45," listen to ft few words of gratuitous advice.
When yon make a social call of an evf nitiir on
a young lady, gn awny at a reasonable hour.
Say ynu come at eight o'clock, an hour and a
half ia certainly as long aa tha most fascinating .
nf ynu in conversation oan, nr rather ought, to
desire to use Ilia charms. Two lionrc, indeed,
can lie very pleasantly spent Willi uiusio, chest
or other games, to lend vitality ; but, kind sir,
liy no mi-inn stay longer. Make shorter calls
mid come oftrnor. A girl that Is, a sensible,
truehearted girl will onjny it better and really
value your acquaintance more. Just conceive
io agony ui a girl who, well knownic the feel
ings of lather and mother anon the subject,
hears the cluck strike ten, and ret most sit on
the edge nf her chair, iu mortal terror lest papa
should put his oft-repeated threat iutn execution
that of coming down and inviting Hie gen
tleman to breakfast.
Ah ! tie girls nnderstand it all by experience,
and know what it is tn dread the prognostic of
displeasure. In such case, a sigh of relief gen
erally accompnnies the closing of the door be
hind the gallant, and one don't gut over tho
feeling of troiiblo till safe In the arms of Mnr-
beus. hveti then, sometimes, tlio dreams nre
troubled with some phautoin of au angry father
and distressed (for all parties) mother, all be
cause a young man will stay lunger than he
ought to. - "

what w o girls will do. For an hnnr and a half
we will ho most irresistibly charming and gra
ciously fasoinating ; then, beware! Muiioeyl-
luhiu responses will be all you need expect :
and if, when the limits shall have been paat, a
startling query shall he heard coming down
stairs : "Isn't it time to ctore up !" yoa must
consider it a righteomvpunishiiiont, and. taking
your hat, meekly depart, a sadder, ami, it is tn
e hoped, a wiser man. Ln not get angry, but
the next time ynu come be careful to keep
within just bounds. We want to rise early
these pleasant mornings, and improve the "shi
ning hours ;" hut wheu forcfd to ho op at suoli
unseasonable hmiri at night, exhausted nature
will sneak. And, as a natural conseniience,
rith (lie almost speed in dressing, we can txiril-
ly get down to breakfast in time to escape a rep
rimand from papa, Who don't believe In beaux
as though bo never was young aad a mild,
reproving glance Irom mama, w ho understands
a little better the poor daughter's feelings, but
must still disapprove outwardly, to keep up
appearances. And now, young men, tuniK
about these things, and don t, fur pity a sake
don't, throw down your paper with a "pshaw,"
but remember the safe side of ten.
What Hkcomks or Dead Horses. Some
people will no doubt be astonished to learn that
larfffl fnrtuiiAa have been made everv rear since
tho ooiiimeucenient of the war, out of the dead
horses of the Army of the Potomac. The pop
ular idea is. that when ltneinaule yields up the
Shost, he is buried in some field, or left to moul
er Into mother earth In the woods somewhere.
Not so. lie baa made his last charge, and
gnawed his last fence rait, but there is from
20 to 140 in the old fellow yet. A contract for
the purchase of the dead corses in the Army ol
the Potomac for the ensuing year, was let a
few days ago, to the highest bidder, at $ 1 76
per head, delivered at the factory of the con
tractor. Last year ICO.000 was '-ared on the'
contract, and Ibis year it is thongtit $100,000
can be made nn It. The animals die at the
rat of about fifty per day at the lowest calcu
lation. At the contractor's establishment they
are thoroughly dissected. First, the shoes are
pulled off. They are usually worth fifty cents
a set. Then the hoofs are cut off. . Tbey bring
about two dollars a sot. Tben oome the cau

Again I feci tempted to raise a warning voice
nbnut ttie disparity of the armainentnn board
of the English and American navies. ' It is Im
possible for those w ho have been many months
absent from England tn ho well informed as to
the actual ituto of public opinion at the pres
ent moment upon this vital suhjeot. But, judg
ing from the officers of Her Majesty's navy,
who have at rare Intervals brought Vessels nf
war into Confederate appears still to be
held thut tho 08-poundor or 8-inoli smooth bore
is England's best weapon of offenso against
iron clnd vessels. The eipertonoo gained at
Charleston enables me to affirm that as well
might yoa pelt one of the Yankee unuitors or
Ironsides with peas asexpeot them to be in any
way damaged by 8-inch shot.
Another disagreeable question forces itself
upon the Englishman's attention wien he is
onguizantof the terrific broadside thrown by
the eight 11-inob guns of tho Ironsides one ol
the most formidable broadsides, in the opinion
of the defenders of Charleston, which has ever
beeo thrown by any vessel upon earth. Have
we any ship in existence, tvhloh osulr success
fully resist such a broadside and respond to it
with anything like commeuiurate weight and
vigor I I should be faithless to my duty if I
did not mention that it is tho universal opinion
of all the English officers serving ir, the Con
federate army with whom I have onvereed.
that England is behind America in tini weight ,
and power of the guns scut by both nations to
It Is still a matter of greatest surprise to
those who are cognizant of the endless experi
ments in gnus and projectiles which are every
day made bv tho Federal and Confederate
States that Englaml has not thought it worth
while to attach to the armies of both nations
such.n commission as MoClellan had in the
Crimean war, with a view to their gaining such
Information with regard to ordnanoe and pro
jectiles as at this moment can be gained no
where else on earth. It is my conviction that
from both lections such commissioners would
receive uothing but courteous and unreserved
information upon all that It Imported them to
know. It is souroelv oreditablo to our govern
ment that they should be blind to the importu
nities fur gaining information which this gigan
tic conflict affords, or that from Old W.orld
pride they should refuse to avail themselves of
the experience to be derived from a continent
destined henceforth and evermore to play no
secondary part iu the drama of tho world.
(7 An excellent London contemporary, The
Bookieller, gives the following biographical
anecdote concerning a very popular foreign
author, and bis most successful work of no
tion :
Not very long ago, wheu M. Victor Hugo
thought of disposing of his now famous work,
"Lea Miscrahles," lie entered into negotiations
with an eminent Paris house, to which he offer
ed the copyright for three hundred thousand
francs, or twelve thousand pounds. The sum
was tl-.ouglit exorbitant, which ltd tn the break
ing n IT of the negotiations; not without sumo
secret sneers at thu extravagaut demands of
book-makers. This came, to tho cars uf a
young publisher of Brussels, M. Lacroii, who
nn sooner heard of tho matter than be set nut
for Guernsey, demanded and obtained an in
terview with Victor Hugo, was allowed to
read a portion of the manuscript of the "Misor
ahles," and, having done so, offered at once to
Cay the threo hundred thousand frunos. "Yoar
usiness is not a large one," remarked M. Vic
tor Hugo. "No ; but I intend making it so
by your book," was the roply. "Then, you
ure licli." suggested the poet. "No, lam not;
hut I hope to acquire wealth by your book.
To publish it. 1 stake my whulo fortitue.".. It
ia uunecessnrr to say that the stake has proved
an exceedingly good ono the sale of the "Mis

An Enav. Read at the Late MeHinr nf the Slate
Teacher' i InttUutcISy Miei S. A. Cornell.
In those favored lauds first cheered by the
beams of day, and first illumined by the light
of reform, a few thinking minds are waking up
tn the necessity of ono important change in our
present system of education. Against firmly
established oustom, they labor with fourfold
difficulty; yet tho Justness of their cause will
surely make their efforts appreciated, and final
ly bring tho desired triumph. Presuming that
the few thoughts we have to utter In sympathy
with these reformers, may find a response in
tho minds of our fellow-teachert, we beg leave
to present the following theme of inquiry:
"What it the proper length of time for confin
ing in tohool our youngor classes of pupils J"
including in this number all under twelve years
of age. , ,
Long established custom has fixed tho term
of six hours for all ages, and so strong are its
fetters that we soaroely hope to seo them bro
ken, injurious as wt believe lite system to be.
Though many are ready tn boast that the days
of "iron rule" in our school rooms have passed,
this praotioe it a relio of the tamo dark age.
And sinoe those who are mos, wronged by it
have no meaus of pleading their own cause,
ours be the sympathizing voice raised iu their
lit. We maintain that this long imprison
ment aadly interferes with the true develop
ment nf both mind and bod)i. It is physically
injurious,-toecansn It requires the enntinuanoe
nf one position of the body far too long for the
health and growth of the frame and muscles of
the ohild. The order of the day is to tit with
book ia hand during almost the whole period,
varied by occasional recitations, during which
"toeing the mark" is io striotly enforced thnt L
very little rest it lounu. And all thii in the
face of tho distinot assertion of physiology thnt
a long continued position tends tu heud aud de
form the comparatively suit bones of the young.
Granting that we may slight the painful weari
ness, whioh it nature's first intimation thnt her
laws are violated, shall we overlook the life
long injuries whioh must fn'low I
2d. It is contrary to the uuiversal instiuota
of the young, cither of humanity or of the an
imal creation, to remain quiet for any lengtli or
time. Watch their playful aud varied gam
bols whou free, and then place yourself in a
position to restrain them, if you would know
the force of this instructive activity. The laws
of muscular development are must faithfully
uliojed, itr the various diversions whioh they
choose, but we fear that older heads are sadly
slightiug those lawt, when they diotuto to long
a term of study.
Another soriuut evil is the vitiated air of the
school room, aguinst whioh very few of onr
buildings are properly guarded. We do not need
lo be told the sad results of this method of poi
soning the blood aud stupefying the braiu.
With all the hygieuio improvements in the con
struction of school rootus yet devised, the.teu
der body- is not too well protected. W hile
many are lacking, hmv inoolV lucre intolerable
it the imprisonment ! I . i .1'
The long, weary afternoons, which "drag
their slow length aloug," tell in painful Hum
bert that the vigor Willi which the earlier duties
of the day were performed, hat been exhausted
in the prolonged pursuit. Our experience, at
pupils aud as teachers, need only be questioned
to detail the history of anxious longings for the
closo of school. Doubtless the whole secret of
the tenacity with which this system is adhered
to, lies in the fact that the evil results of abuset
o. the physical frame, are not always immedi
ately apparent. .
The objection will be made that children
have endured, anil still enduro tho evil, and
therefore, no injury oan be therewith connect
ed. Let the objector rust assured tha'. the
violation of nature's laws will, sooner or later,
biing the penalty. If tho elasticity of youth
suspend it for a lime, it will yet fall upon man
hood or old nge and enfeeble or shorten life
Hut tho muiiileet results may now be seen in
the sleudur growlh of some of our bri .blest pu
pils, whose intellectual development so far ex
ceeds tho physical, that it is painful to behold.
L)a we see no "rouud shouldered" students
among our college graduates t And who shall
say that tho sad work was not conimuuaed iu
childhood, when the weary frame sought relief
by resting the elbotvt upou the desk I Or If
the injury iu their case was afterward contrac
ted, might nut thu euuiu results be inure readily
produced upon the lilllo ones 1
True, as teachers, wu acknowledge it our
duty to guard against thu bud habit of leaning
forward, among onr pupils, but shull we nut be
wiser to look for the cause, aud remove it, if
possible I . -
Of the mental injuries, still more grievout
complaint may justly be mado. Frequently a
dislike lu school ia induced iu the minds uf chil
dren, from this unnatural confinement. They
must then he driven to study as n tusk, iustuud
or being lurcUjliy the tleliglita of the pathway
of knowledge. This disliku is not wholly from
innate nerverseuoss, but aa these unfortunates
will tell ynu. something acquired from actual
experience of tlio unpleasant tusk of silling still
so long.
Have we never sympathized with tome hon
est friend, iu mature years, who lamented his
want nf mentul culture, assigning au uncon
querable aversion to school, when young, as the
oausul Perhaps ho has been blamed, rather
than pitied, but sorely the fault is not all
his own. Even congregations find them
selves wearied afler listening two hours to an
eloquent lecture nr thrilling sermon, liy whut
analogy, then, do wo require oliililren tn give
attention to some theme, often one difficult fur
their comprehension, fur a much longer period I
Many may say wo do not expect tlium to study
all the lime iu school. Thou why not. by all
means.giVM them their liberty out uf the school
room I What ail vantage is it to them or their
teacher tn be inaotive at their desks longer than
necessary to learn aud recite their leasnus I
The truth is that but a very small uuuiber do
study, or oan ho made to study this length of
tune, and then what solieniea of nnshiel em
ploy their restless minds !
As teachers, we ure familiar with many try
ing misdeiiienuors, which, by school discipline
are capital crimes, yet, a right view of thu case
would exaulpate the active, fuu loving offend
ers. What wonder that in the conflict between
childish nature and school " order " they fre
quently fall victims to the rod I They tltns are
annual unavoiauniy contracting nanus oi aisn
liedienee, and the moral injury overbalances
all that may be supposed to be gained from the
six hour system.
On the other band, suppose that, through
hope or fear, a few are indnoed to apply their
minds during the allotted lime, we question
much whether this stimulus nf the brain is not
an Injury, rather than a lienefit. Memory will
doubtless he burdened with a load, with which
the ohild's understanding oan But dispose, and
a sort of parrot wttdom will He Uie result.
Hut allowius: that the intellectual lacnlliea
are harmoniously developed, it will then be at
the expense of vigor. We venture the asser
tion that these hot-lioiitc students will not many
years stand in advance of those who have been
directed tn ttmlirt according to ineir capacity
and have b'lilt npon a itrong physical fouinln

it is an extraordinary faet there it now no act

the only complaint is, that too much hot been

fugitive slave law. Then I ask what excuse
