Wo take tho following from a capital article in a late number of the American Quarterly ; A r e our Children E d u c a t e d ?— W e mean the children of the people of the United States. A n answer to this inquiry may be ob­ tained in various w a y s : as, for example, by a visit to a manufactory, or a me­ chanic’s shop, (we care not where,) and an examination of lhe children and youth who ave laboring there— who “are done going to school,” as they say, and are now preparing themselves for the ac­ tive business of life. Suppose we go in­ to a newspaper or book printing office in New-York, or Philadelphia, or Pitts­ burg, or St. Louis, and select an intelli­ gent lad of fifteen, who has just been in­ dentured, and who has had a fair chance at an ordinary school in town or c oun­ try, public or private. Let him read the first paragraph of the first column of the paper he is folding for the mail. Here it is ; *f N ew-York and Philadelphia Packets, by sea, AAItOX B. COOLEV’S LIKE. “ The subscriber respectfully informs the regular shippers and the public gen­ erally, that he will continue his line of packets by sea, as heretofore; and in conjunction with Mr. G. O. Yan Am ringe, agent for this line at New-York, will endeavor to render every facility to t h e s p e e d y t r a n s m i s s i o n o f m e r c h a n d i s e to and from New-York. “ B y this line goods will, if de­ sired, be insured at a h a lf per cent, p r e ­ m ium on an open policy for the season. This advantage, and that of the vessels having all possible despatch, with prices of freight much less than can be afforded by any artificial navigation, offer induce­ ments to the shippers above any other mode of conveyance. “ For fright, apply to “ A ar o n B .

Then let him write two or three lines of it, at your dic­ tation, and observe the orthography, points, capitals, &c. &c. T h ese exer­ cises embrace the three elementary branches of the most ordinary education in reading, spelling, and writing. But, as h is education is completed, w e may properly pursue the examination.

Let him tell us w h y artificial nav­ igation is printed in different looking let­ ters or type ; what that different type or letter is called, and why % W h y JYo. stands for number, and Co. for company ? W h at is meant by the phrase “ by sea ?” W h at course a vessel sailing from Phi­ ladelphia to N ew -Y o rk takes! In what other w a y packets pass from one port to the other ? and what is meant by h a l f p e r cent, prem ium ? Those questions involve no other branch of instruction than the three a- bove named. They all relate to com­ mon subjects, which it is the very pur­ pose of common-school instruction to en­ able a boy to understand ; and one who has been properly taught, at the most se­ cluded and ordinary district school,might be e x p e c t e d , one would think, to answer nearly or quite all of them. Is there any th in g ultra or visionary in this viewl Sure­ ly not,unless the whole subject of popular instruction is ultra and visionary.

The next, as he continued silent, and he; looking glass spoke the change, a rueful one, she began for once to think she had done rather a ^foolish thing. Nothin.y more ever transpired upon the subject, until the duke’s death, when she found her beautiful ringlets carefully laid bv in a cabinet, where ho kept whatever ho held most precious; and at this point of the story she regularly fell a-crying. P o w e r o f the Im a g in a t io n .— An liomvt New England Farmer started one very cold day in winter, with his sled and ox­ en into the forest, half a mile frorn home, for the purpose of chopping a load of wood. Having felled a tree, he drove the team along side, and commenced chopping it up. By an unlucky hit h <4 brought the whole bit of the axe across his foot, with a sidelong stroke. The immense gash so alarmed him as to near­ ly deprive him of all strength. Me feh the warm blood filling his shoe. W ith great difficulty he succeeded in rolling himselt on to the sled and started the ox­ en for home. As soon as he reached the door he called eagerly for help. Hia terrified wife and daughter with much effort lifted him into the house, as ha whs wholly unable to help himself, say­ ing his foot was neatly severed from the leg, lie was laid carefully on the bod, groaning all the while very bitterly. H is wife hastily prepared dressings, and re­ moved the shoe and sock, expecting to see a desperate wound, when lo I tha skin was not even broken. Before go­ ing out in the morning he had wrapped his feet in red flannel, to protect them from the cold; the gash laid this open to his vjew, and he thought it flesh and blood. His reason not correcting tho mistake, all the pain and loss of power which attends a real wound followed.—■ Man often suffers rnore from imaginary evils, than from real ones. A Shocking bad I f a t and a Shocking bad H e a d .— A newly married lady, residing not more than 10 miles from Boothe Gross, has, during her honey-moon, been the annoyance of every family circle in­ to which she has been introduced, by her incessant praises of the perfections of her excellent husband. About a week ago, however, after holding forth in amatory and laudatory expressions a full hour, she said to a friend at the opposite side of the room, “ W eil I think it must be a, wonder to you all, as it is to me, that my husband, with all his excellence, should wear such a shocking bad hat.” “ per­ haps not, madam,” replied tho interroga­ ted, “ for w e think it fits his head I”—- This gentle hit had the desired effect. Cheap Travelling .— A friend has given us a bill at a tavern in the western part of Wisconsin. It reads thus Mr t o Dr. To 2 suppers, 2 lodgings, 2 breakfasts, 3 pecks of oats, $6 . 0 0 “ \What said our friend, “ only six dollars 1” * Oh,” replied the landlord, “ as W9 had no hay for your horses, and as you slept in the bed of our black man, who has gone out to buy some dogs of tho Indians, I have been rather moderate,and hope you will say a word in our favor when you get in the vicinity of the news­ papers.” “I wonder how any one can eat hia breakfast before reading a newspaper,” said an old borrower of this article. “I A D u tch e s ? * R e v e n g e . — Sarah, D u ch­ ess of Marlborough, had still, at an ad-- vanced age, considerable remains ofbeau- | ty, most expressive eyes, and the finest wonder how any one can eat his break­ fast after reading a borrowed one,” eaid his more consciencious wife. A Fragm e n t o f Arabic Poetry .— A n Arabian having brought a blnsh to a maiden’s cheek, by the earnestness of his gaze, said to her, “M y looks have plant­ ed roses on your cheeks, w h y forbid ma to gather them 1 The law permits him who sows to reap the harvest.” It is very difficult to draw the line be­ tween impertinence and honest boldness, yet every man of correct feeling can dis­ tinguish the one from the other. Per­ haps the best definition which can he given of the former is, an assumption of the courage when it ia not legitimately called into action— where there is no oc­ casion for bravery, and where audacity is calculated to work no good purpose— where a modest deportment would an­ swer quite as well. ________ The French legal reports state that 20,000 persons were arrested in that country during the past year, for politi­ cal offences alone,
