Excerpt from The Metropolitan Third Reader: Carefully Arranged, in Prose and Verse, for the Use of Schools Instructions in natural history or natural science, as chemistry, mineralogy, geology, quadrupeds, birds, fishes, or bugs, may be very interesting, but they form no part of education, and tend far more to materialize the mind than to elevate it to God, and to store it with moral and religious_ principles, which may one day fructify, and form a character of moral and true religious worth. A book may contain much useful instruction on nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, par ticiples, and other parts of speech, very proper in a grammar-book, but quite out of place in a, reading book; but all these lessons belong'to the department of special instruction, and either have no bearing on education preper, or tend to give to education a dry, utilitarian, and materialistic character. The' aim of the reading-book is not instruction, save in the single art of reading, but education, the development or cultivation in the mind and in the heart of those great principles which are the basis of all religion.
