A teacher might as well scold
chili tor being near-sighted as for
being naturally dull. Some chil
dren have a great verbal memory,
others are quite the reverse. Some
minds develop early, others late.
Some have great powers of acquir
ing, others of originating. Some
may appear stupid because theii
true spring of character has never
been touched. The dunce of a
school may turn out in the end the
living, progressive, wonder-working
genious of the age. In order
to exert the best spiritual influence,
we must understand the spirit upon
which we wish to exert that inSfra.
ence; tor, with tlie human mind;
we must work with nature, and not
against it. Like the leaf ot the
nettle, if touched one way it stings
like a wasp ; if the other, it is softer
than satin. If we would do justice
to the human mind, we must mid
its peculiar characteristics, and
adapt ourselves to individual wants.

a friend, who is now tlie principal
in one of our best grammar-schools,
