ADVERTISEMENT.

BEING early convinced that many advantages arise from the proper cultivation of the youthful mind, and that pious maternal care is the first step towards its accomplishment, I have occasionally, when reading, selected such sentiments upon education, as accorded with my own.

And when a leisure moment has offered, I have also penned some of my own reflections on this interesting subject. Having, by these means, made the following collection, I am induced to lay it before the public, with a hope, that it may, in some degree, promote the cause of virtue.

" To those who act from the noble motive of love, " and the animating power of the Christian's hope, the - exercise is the reward, the pern ission is the privilege, < and the work is the wages."

A. Morr. HICKORY GROVE, 1824.
