Tun HuiiTicutrumsr, for .March, lias an arti cle on School Houses, in which the: editor in sifts upon tho good moral influences of order and bounty in tho rxtcilur of these Litiil Jllips. Ho gives the following interesting description of a school house in the neighboihood of his own residence: " Nothing is so convincing on those subjects as example. We saw, last summer, in Dutchess countv, New lork, a Iter tchml, erected tofnllil r..l!,- ll,,. ,.,! inn rifnll r.nli 11,1 r,' ,11 ,ncl f'c)0l hoe, which hail been built by a genllcinan whose lato ami oenevolencc seem like sunshine to warm anil irradiate bis whole neighborhood. It was a building simple enough, alter all. A projecting roof, with slightly orna mented brackets, a pretty porch, neat cfiitnncv tops ; its color u solt neutral tint ; these were its leading routines. Jl tit n single glance at it told, in a moment, that the nil syuV7 laid been nisi on, and the good spirit h id taken its place. Tho utmost neatness and cleanliness appeared in every part. Beautiful lincMind creepers climb ed upon thu walls ami hung in festoons oer tho windows, tiroups uf trees and flowering shrubs were thrhing within iN inclo-ure. A bit of neat lawn surrounded the building, and wa- evidently an object of care and upert with tbe pupils thein-clvos. Altogether, it was a picture of a district school-house, which, compared with that we before described, anil which one everv day sees, was a foretaste of the luillcmum. ff any stubborn pedagogue doubts it, let him come to us, .mil we will diiect him on a pilgrimage to this .Mecca, which is only eight miles from us." There ar several excellent articles on horti culture of practical value in this number. Among them is one cm " Select l'ruits for tbe North," principally made up of Utters from the .State of .Maine, from which it appears that not only excellent apples, but linu pears, plums, and cherries, and some arieties of peaches, are raided in that severe eliurite. Tho goorcberries of .Maine are particularly large and line. Maine has also its grapes thu lluckminstcr cream. colored, of which we never beard before, ripens there, and the J.imington grape had its origin in .Maine. 1'rom an article on Special .Manures for l'ruil Tree, we take the following extract " Tor old iii p'o orchards, upon soil deficient in lime, wu would leciiminond a ton-droisiiii; of lime for thu lir.-t time of two hundred bu.-bels to the acre. This w ill, iisii.illv, it the laud is in L'ood condition, bring the trees into oood bearing condition again. In some soils the effects will be immediate, and in others it will require one or two seasons lor the lime to produce it effect. " l'or middle-sized bearing trees, a peck of air-slacked lnno to eaeli tree is utlicient. It is, perhaps, best applied in the autumn, but it will answer very well in tho spring. .Scatter it I evenly over tbe surlace of the ground, as far a the root.- extend.

Tbe same quantity of spent ashes as ol lime may be used lor each tree.

Passing through Kigbth st. at Philadelphia, a few da ys since, and seeing St. Andrews Church 1 open, 1 went in to revive some plea-ant as-ocia-' tions connected vv ith that sacred place. That building has to me a hallowed interest as Ihoj monument of the sainted Hedcll. It was erec-1 ted for him: there bo spent his best years and1 his fragrant memory fills the place. As 1 look ed acro-s tho silent Church, I could, in imagi nation, see the good man li-c in tho pulpit once more, jiistas he appeared to tho crowds that 11-cd to throng that building fourteen years ago. I could see again the pale emaciated form, tho mild and beaming uye, and Iho almost heavenly glow tint lighted up hi- sweet calm face vvheii bo opened the wold of (led, and read in tones so troinuluiis that you felt how slight a bold ho had on earth, and vet so devout that you felt how much ho had imbibed ol llie spirit orthat place whither he was golnj'. In repo-e that I. ice was one ol llie most plain, almo-l lorbul ding: when be was wanned into a spirit or rapt devotion by some genial theme in the pulpit, the same face glowed like a seraph's. Night alter night, crowds gathered in to listen to his win ning tones ami lender appeals ; the ai-les were , full ; tho doors wero be.-ieged, and while ho I spoko with feeble tone-, like the notes of a bro I K'li harp, the hoiiso was still as the giave. One evening, a ihotigbllessynuth vvasnis-ing Iho door of St. Andrew's, and saw a great throng gathered about it. Ho inquired what was go ing on, and w.im told that a 'famous preacher 1 was holding lorth.' ' Well," said be, ' 1 would ' not go in, if Christ himself was going to preach." 1 Ho was picvailed on, however, to go in, and I was awakened under the powerful sermon that 1 he heard. I Dr. Hedell was eli-tinguished for his clear ex positions oT simple und sinking pis-ages, and lor his pungent apneals to the con-cience.

A'. V, (Jiserter. Tinsels jiy TMEia HkiiiT Naiics. Avarice has often been mentioni-d as a characteristic quality of tho peoplu of New llngland and the l'reo Stales. Tho chargo was eloquently re pelled by William DwiMir, of Sprinufelil, in thu following extract fiom a speech recently de livered in Iho legislature of .Massachusetts, III reply lo .Mr, llryant, of llarre : I suppose ho means lo charge ignoble avarice as 111 j leading passion of New Ihigl.uid. I deny il. 1 havo beaid tho taunt from oilier quarters, It often comes to us from the South. Hut 1 de ny il, coming Irom wb never quarter it may, Avarice is not New llngland's vice.

Iler wealth is hardly won and wisely senl. lint I can tell the gentleman where he will find avarice, and something more where it is not often sought nmong the allies or the Noith"rn democracy, thu slaveholders, in Ibe sunny, indolent, unenterpris ing South. A New l.'nglaiid laborer brings home his diy'.s earnings, wrung rrom his own mu-cles, and it is avarice. Thu Southern slave holder biings biime another man's earnings, and it i what? The New I'nglander sells tho product of his day's labor, and it is avarice. The Sutitliori'cr sells human lle-b rai-ed in bis own house, iit.d it is what The New I'ng lauder pursues tbe whale in tho Pacific, and hunts the beaver in Oregon it is avarice. Tho .Southerner gets up th" S-'cininoIo war, (hat ho may, at goveinmeiil e.vpen-e, hunt slaves in llm everglades of Florida, and annexes Texas that he may sell his negroes at a heller price, and it -is extending the area of freedom.
