An institution for Iho I inker education of females ought, IniuAi, to be ordered dlf fert utly from the Krse Academy. Tliu ancient kMci aui iIm higher mathematics, for example, wonM no* be rwjuirad.

Such an institution U most Important sa uifontmg protection to morula and iliil'using among the people a liner toue of feelings. Tli.- daughters of the people, in turn, become the motlu-i a of the people ani govern ilie very heart of society. In the next pla> e, it la uo h-na obvious tliat one free acads mj which w e now have must very soon prove Inadequate to tlie wuuts of the younc men of thin city, nwi other Institution* Of the same kind will need to l>e established. Th < institution symbolizes more and more to the Kuro)>can schools known as gymnasia. Now the city ot llerllu alone, with half the popu lation of New York, maintains seven ot tlies.- schools, contain lug together aliout three thousand live hundred pupils, when" those who are able to pay, pav about sixteen dolla "in year, and where those who are unable to pay are educated gratu itously. The democratic city of New York ought utK to be be hind the despotic eity of Berliu. Mut the froo academies, and every grade of school. require ?t tills moment, rtiosl of all for their successful multiplication and ilevelopeinent, the presence of the highest grade of educa tional instruction. Such an Institution would edurate teachers ot the highest grade, who would educate teachers of a lower grade; that In, the l' uiverstty would educate teachers for the free academies and normal schools, and the free academies sud normal schools would educate I. achers lis- ail the subor dinate grades. Tims would our system be completed and main tained in healthful action. The creation of the University at once would, by its necessary influence mud provisions, call all the others into being. IJut. beside this, the university would do just that whic h 1 have before Indicated as a popular right. It Mould atl'ord the means of the highest education to all the son* of the people who felt disposed to attempt it. Here in the university we could collect books and apparatus, establish museums and galleries of art, and call together eminent si bolurs In every branch of knowledge, to give lectures on the principles and the practical details and applications of science. J'lie tree academies would furnish students for the university, ss the university would furnish teachers for the free acade mies. Students ? oald also flock to the university from the differ ent colleges of our country after graduating there The twe hundred now found In foreign universities would thus be pro vided lor at home. The number of university students would be inotrased oy the very fact that there would a university to receive t!. cm. The passion for attending the lectures of Itinerant leciurers in the community, generally, proves con clusively that many persons besides the regular students of thn university would be Inclined to attend the lectures of the professors lu branches for which they might have a predellc tion. 'I his, indeed, is the case in European cities where uni versities exist. It is evident that a t.istc for knowledge an I self cultivation would thus prevail mor? and more, and our society be mi'matcd by ati intellectual and tasteful life. New York now our commercial emporium, would tins lie rome the wri.it seat ot le iming and tho arts; and would, like Paris and other European cities, attract uiultttii !es by the < liai ins ol Its literary a Wantages, and its all-pervading re iue mciit. It Is humiliating to reflect how generally the great cities of Kuropc arc the seals of uiiivtrsairs, of museums, andof gal leries of ai t. while > ? e reinuin a mere city of traders. We pay enoi uiotis taxes a:id get lu returs material bench's. The pen ii e have a riv'h to demand som^lim-,' more li.au till*. Were I ' treating this uihject merely as a political economist, I night say that It w<mi'i add vastly to our wealth, an 1 might aiduce Paris and M nalch as examples. Now, Anierlni'is, efter havtrg made their wealth In New York, resort to Kurouean cities^for what New York might it s' ii be ma de to all ro them, old we make tho same provision tor Intelk etual ati.l tasteful t ulllvatlon. Ker an otyect flf such paramount ..ul vital moment the cost would be comparatively inconsiderable, especially if exlsthig institutions of I irnlng were made adjuncts; and nt the eost, whatever It would be, should be decmet of minor cousiicra i. on, in view ot the las'ing beneiits to be derived. Xlie cost of the introduction of the t'ro.on Water appalled many at tlr-t: btt' who now counts the cos:, while daily and hourly experiencing the bleitlngs of tha1 great work* What the people now ask for Is the Introdu? ton into the city of a purer and more vital strewn the stre iui of knowledge, full sud overflowing brought to every man's door, a , 1 offered to every Man's taste. It would be lite crowning work of our generation, and con i ect us with all fuiiiro generatkins In grateful and honors I re metnbrances With these views, and deeply Impressed with the great nation . I want of such an insBttslon, I propose that the corporation establish the (.'Diversity and Academy of Hcl i nee ami Arts o! the "ity of New York, as well as a I re,- Aca demy Ki inaVs. In uiy judgmoiit, llr- people deni uid these asthe cuUnniatltig part of a system of pulillc edu -ation not now perfected, 'fiio great Untvenrtty I propose Is Just as naturally and properly the work of the eMnr as the pntnary s<'ho<ils and the exlslng 1- rec Academy.
