Cl.ii. itn Wcrti Pr an How I lie German SrliooN Heroine tni a I'OHrr in Ihr l.and. The Germain have ever ?1 iotin^uisheJ tlieuisclvus in certain attributes of the human . character. They have that remarkable steadi- _ ness which carries them through difliculties very easily overpowering the impatient, tleetiug character. Many a thread is broken by jerking when tangled, hut a steady hand takes hold of every loop, removes every obstacle, and saves the thread. They are persevering. Steadiness and perseverance go well together. A man might be steady and yet not persevering. He might lack that continuity which makes men hold on even if they see no end to the work. They are full of determination. Ditlieulty after ditlieulty may arise ; continuity has de- termination by its side. They continue to be ~ determined to carry the work through. Jf the rest of the world lias failed and takes another course, the Germans fight it through as they > think experience anil careful study teach them. With all the foregoing goes strictness. They not only intend to finish the work begun, hut every part must he so well made that the whole shall he as nearly perfect as ,, possible. ' .< Any people having these characteristics will not bury its talents. The Germans arc therefore faithful students. No task is too ilitticull lor mem i<> uniieriuKc. It is thus easy to believe that the Germans must be well prepared before entering upon their duties as teaeliers. They do not care so much about the tune spent in a normal B< school, as abaut the finishing of a comprehensive course of study. In Saxony, for instance, children leave the public school at the age of fourteen. If a youth wishes to ^ become a teacher, he must have stood well in his class, must pass a fair examination, and must be able-bodied besides. Then lie remains in the normal school six years be- PI lore lie enters the field a-- teacher. Such young men go out to work without experimenting in half a dozen different ways before they can teacli successfully. There is also more uniformity in their plans and in the results of their labors, than where teachers get all sorts of training or none at all. The children, being naturally rather studious, ac- I complish a great deal even if they do work slowly. The German school laws give the teacher immediate advantages which we do not have. First, he can rely upon pretty regular attendance, for the law compels children to come when they are able. In places the law must l>e enforced very rigidly, while other localilies scarcely need the law : the children go to school almost as they do to their meals. If the teacher begins a subject with a certain class he need not stop to think whether he will be obliged to teach a part of the class $" the same subject next year or not. All will he present the whole time, and when one A subject is finished another is taken up. \Ve would scarcely think of allowing young men to enter college to stay six months, then tinuc irregularly for eight or ten yearn. We we want them to go through a connected, systematic course of training. If this is the true philosophy of education for young men who have perhaps learned to think for themselves, much more is it good for children, who are as tender plantlets, to Ik1 trained systematically. The compulsory law evidently works well in Germany, hut whether it, would work well with us is a question. We do not have the influence of monarchy. Young America is inclined to do no good under any force system. At nil events, we can accomplish much more in six months with pupils coming because they want to learn, than in one year with pupils coming just because the law forces them to he present. Therefore it is of vital importance lor us to send ' well-trained men in the Held, and to continue inspiring the public mind with the importance of education. The results of the teacher's 4| work should he such as to cause parents to take the deepest interest in the training of their children. If we fail in these things we will be inclined to take recourse to the compulsory law, and then will Ire the very worst t time to do anything of the kind. Secondly, every ungraded German school J cause cliildrrn enter at - even and leave at ' At fourteen, making a difference of no more than 1 seven years in tlie school ago. Then tliev 1 must go from forty to forty-four week- |>ti , year, in this way the teacher need uot have j f so many classes even if Uie number ??f pupils j ttl" a very large, couseipiRiitlv he can do more am] better work. He e.ui take time to hear his classes, and will have less trouble in j J1-1*' speaking to the youngest in the class without j wearying the oldest or the most intelligent; for he w ill be more likely to have pupils of the same ago in his <la>- than where they go front five to twenty-one. Thirdly, the pupils are obliged to study all | the branches prescribed by the law. There i ?; | are slight objections to this, hut there are ; j,;,, also many arlvantagcs. One of these is that s We seldom timl German children knowing; 11K nothing about geography, or grammar, oi j t arithmetic. Their knowledge is not always | extensive in one direction, hut includes all the essential studies. Klemeutaiy iiislruction, at least, should be so everywhere. Exercising the well-developed faculties only, is ' detrimental to the rest, and does not projierly {*' prepare the child for lile's duties. , "'? Thus tlie German schools become u power | J*4' which is felt throughout the land. All re-1 rf* ceive more or less instruction. All kuow*, to | ' some extent, at least, what is meant by lile's , j> , duties, ami how to ]>erforat Uiein. They do | not wander in the dark with regard to the ; political movements of the day. In a rcpub- ; lie, where self-government is the "center j uronud which everything else moves, men i areespected to know these tilings: but where the people are subjects the tendency is re- ? versed. France, for instance, has suffered j ?'' severely for this very reason. Let an Amer- j jrQtl ican travel from France to Germany and lie i the will see more t learly than [ever what cduca-' the lion has done for the latter. 1 attei irlopmmt Theorj lo Practice. e arc engaged now in developing a, mo for growing kid glove# upon the ; inal animal.

Atf.R'S llxia Vir.oa, by long and extensive use, has proven that it stops the falling of the hair immediately; often lews the growth, and always surely restores color, when faded or gray. It stimulates the tritive organs to healthy activity, and proves both the hair and its beauty. Thus tshy, weak, or sickly hair becomes glossy, able, and strengthened: lost hair regrows ih lively expression : falling hair is checked d established ; thin hair thickens ; and faded gray hair resume their original color, lis ration is sure and harmless. It cares dandT, heals all humors, and keeps the scalp cool, :an,and soft?under which conditions diseases the scalp are impossible. As a dressing for ladies' hair, the Vigor is nise I for its grateful and agreeable perfume, d valued for the soft lustre and richness of tie it imparts. Prepared by Dr. J. C.

I 0',j At home the struggle for Freedom seems over I j The last slave has long been a citizen ; the last ' I opposition to emancipation, enfranchisement, . j- , equal civil rights, has been formally abandoned. ' No party. North or South, longer disputes the result of the War for the Cnion : all declare that _ i these results roust never be undone; and, with a whole people thus united on the grand plat- ? ' form of All Rights for All, whereto our bloody h struggle, and the prolonged civil contents that followed, have led us, the Republic closes the j' records of the bitter, hateful Past, and turns peacefully, hopefully, to the less alarming be- ' i cause less vita! problems of the Future. To whatever may elucidate the general discussion re or action on these. The Thiiu nk gives antple-t ca space and most impartial record. Wliatever ! ; parties may propose, whatever political leaders j may say, whatever officers may do, is fairly set ' down in its columns, whether this news helps or w; hinders its own views. Its readers have the | <tjright to an honest statement of the facts ; and this they always get. But as to its own political principles, Tin: Tkibcxe is of course, hereafter as heretofore, I sti the champion of K.jual Rights, irrespective of to Race, Nativity, or Color. It stands inflexibly to by the Amendments for the permanent security sn of those Rights, which have been solemnly in nu corporated by the People, in the Constitution of th ? the United States. Independent of all political nn . ! parties, it endeavors to treat them all with in li >f ? cial fairness. It labors to purify the adminis ag | tration of Government, National, State, and 1 th ; Municipal, and whenever those in authority, i *b whether in National, State, or Municipal affairs. | tin '9 take the lead in this work, it will therein give tie theni its cordial support. But it can never he th the servitor of any political party; nor will it j surrender or even waive its right to criticise anil i I condemn what is wrong, and commend what is w right in the action of any parties or of any pub- t . lie men. Now, as always, Tin: Tribcvr labors with all its heart for the promotion of the great ma , *n ? terial interests of the country. 1 lie progre < wj of Invention and of Labor-Saving, the uevelop I j ment of our resources, the preservation of our j Land for the Landless and its rapid subjuga- ! j4* tion to human wants, the utilization of our vast 'r underlying Ores, tho extension of the facilities for bringing Producer and Consumer nearer together?whatever tends to swell the ranks, inry crease the knowledge and better the condition he of those devoted to Productive Industry finds j jW ia mention and encouragement in our columns. is- ' The Weekly Tumi xk, now more than thirty 11, years old, has endeavored to keep up with the o- progress of the age in improvement and in enterprise. It devotes a large share of its col- ! CR a- limns to Agriculture as the most essential ami ' or general of human pursuits. It employs the L nt ' ablest and most successful cultivators to set fol he forth in brief, clear essays their practical vows Li of the Farmer's work. It reports public dis- , : cussions which elucidate that work: gathers! j. n<r from every source agricultural news, the re- j. n"! ports of the latest experiments, the stories of T the latest successes and failures, and whatever 1 ;,! may tend at once to better Agriculture, and to 1 commend it as the first and most important of \ progressive Arts, based on natural science. u. | Tiie Weekly Triboe appeals also to Teach- 1 ' era, Students, and persons of inquiring minds, ;os S by tho character of its Literary contents, whit h 0f | include reviews of all the works proceeding re from the master minds of the Obi or New },{ , World, with liberal extracts from those of J especial interest. Imaginative Literature also i claims attention, but in a subordinate degree. "Home Interests" are discussed weekly by a V1 sl ' lady specially qualified to instruct and interest l,r, 1 her own sex, and the younger portion of the other. No column is more eagerly sought or perused with greater advantage ami profit than j hers. The News of the Hay, elucidated by ! ' l brief comments, is so condensed that no 11 ()f rendt-r can deem it diffuse, while given sufn, Gciently in detail to satisfy the wants of the be average reader. Selections are regularly made Id from the extensive Correspondents of Tiie f't rfi Daily Tribute from every country, ami its sc ill editorials of more permanent value are here g;( reproduced. In short, Tiie Wekki.y Tkircne j commends itself to Millions by ministering to , : their intellectual wants more fully than they ts ' are met by any other journal, while its regain rer?ort-s of th?- Cattle. Country Produce, an 1 ' ur other Market*, will of themselves save the ^ b- farmer who regularly notes thern far more than fj" hia journal's price. . For the family circle of the educated farmer ' J:'( a or artisan, Thf Wffki.y Tkib? vf ha* no su- ; y perior, as is proved by the hundreds of thou* | |nf sands who, having read it from childhood, still i j (4 cherish and enjoy it in the prime and on the | r)C <Iown hill of life. We respectfully urge those tj|( to who know it* worth to commend Tbk Wekki y | io 1 hiB' sk to their friends and neighbors, and w? pi proffer it t?i clubs at prices which barely pay the f ar cost of paper and presswork.
