[p. 147] virtuous principles & kindly feelings—where profane vulgar & obscene language is discarded, and selfishness—pride—anger—wrath—malice—hatred—revenge, and all the baser passions are by law shut out, and forbearance—meekness—patience—brotherly kindness & love are the acknowledged principles of action. A little Republic prescribing its own rules—enacting its own laws—judging its own causes—and punishing its own offenders,—The Teacher, a mere executive officer to enforce the decisions of the majority against the lawless & disobedient of this self-governed & happy community. Such, should be the high school—to such a condition it is rapidly approaching—and to Teacher & pupils we award our unqualified praise.
