THE

Ohio Journal of Education. .

COLUMBUS, JANUARY, 1856.

Introductory.

T the dawn of a new year, the first number of a new volume

of the Journal goes forth to meet its patrons and friends, and tender to them and all the friends of our cause the customary greeting of the season ; would that our kindly wishes, emanating as they do from the heart, could reach the heart as well as the eye of all who are laboring with us in the cause of education.

The fifth volume, how suggestive the thought! Since our work commenced what changes have occurred ! During the last four years some 200,000 of the youth of Ohio have reached their majority, bave passed from our schools with such preparation for the duties of life as these schools have afforded : they have become part of our citizens, their suffrages are deciding the most momentous questions connected with the welfare of the State, and their influence affecting, favorably or unfavorably, all by whom they are surrounded. Within that time a still larger number have become entitled to the privileges of our schools, and are now yielding to the moulding influence of the Teachers to whom their training is entrusted.

The great object for which we labor, and which has heretofore been clearly set forth, is still the same; the means by which it is to be accomplished remain unchanged. We come with no new revelation on this subject : we have no brilliant experiments to exhibit, no novel theories to propose, no startling discoveries to announce. It is still true, as in time past, that there is no royal road to learning : knowledge must still be acquired, fact by fact, item by item, by patient and persevering toil. In the same manner only can mental discipline be acquired, by the continued exercise of each faculty and susceptibility of the mind. Perception, consciousness and reason, understanding,
