As a spring or fall purifier it has given new constitutions to thousands, it is by its operation on the Blood that such surprisingcures have been performed in numerous diseases.

T; •; u ral consequence of the restrictions the u laid on education, is, that ve often f, i t same individual a learned head, but a dt i lit t. j body, and a neglectpd heart. Education 4 on', we think, be regard* d as the means of fi tii - t,.- for the i'Lch-1 ge of all Ins duties : it ~hoiild pr (luce vigorous and hardy bodies, trained to p -v, erfu! action, and inured to privation and f- - >7 . hearts formed to all that is pure and rob/.- 1 moral principle; and minds prepared for o. dent exertion in 1* .attever mar be rtn-ir ttv-p. meat in the ereat business of aeromplisliins t!.- purposes of human existence. Under these as pressions. v e shall give to physical edwc'l< • ti...- proportion of our attention which seems ih: : its importance. Mural education we shall c der as embracing whatever is to form the h and stamp the character. Thc infiuen. •: of *. ample in the sphere of daily intercourse, we re gard as the most powerful instrument iu tiie ! matioii of moral habits. In no light d ; v. c can- template the pi ogress of education with more- satisfaction, than when we view it as elevating and purifying the gient body ofthe comrmmit aud thus affording to the attentive and refleetin parent, thc pleasing assurance, that his clTor: with his children at home, will not he counter act. il by contaminating example abroad. 1’ar- ticular attention will be paid to domestic educatin'. or that which emanates from parental and tannh influence ; nor shall we neglectpersonrl educe tion, or that which consists in the voluntary for mation of individual character. The subject of female education is one which was deemed unspeakably important, he ban no hesitation in expressing our conviction that it has not yet received the consideration which it merits. Whatever concerns tiie culture of thc female mind, extends ultimately to the formation of aH minds, at that early and susceptible p rw<! when maternal influence is forming’ the impr< s ons which eventually terminate in mental am moral habits. But the theme is too full of impor tant and interesting topics to admit of disem-:'!: 1 in a prospectus. There is no department of oar labours, frofti which we anticipate a higher grab ! fication, than enr endeavors to aid tire iu.-'v \ tion ofthe fomale sex. j Our efforts shall be directed chiefly to ear’, j and elementary education, because it is, in cur | view, more important than that of any other p ! riod or department. At the same time, we sh - 1 not omit the higher branches of science and lit erature, nor the training preparatory to prof< ,: sional pursuits. In particular branches of in struction, w i have no favorite theories to obtrude To what is of old standing, we have no ho^tuitv arising merely from its being old. Novelty w shall always regard as an indifferent circut stance, rather than a. recommendation. But ex planatory, practical instruction, under ® iiatever name it may appear, we shall be happy al! time> to aid with our best exertions. As our pages are to be devoted exclusively to the cause of education throughout our country- an earnest and cordial invitation is gi- en to per sons in every quarter, who take an interest in our labours, to assist us by thc communication o’- useful and interesting matters.
