The bringing up. as of a child: instruction: formation of manners. Education comprehends all that course of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, cultivate the taste, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. In its most extended signification it may be defined, in reference to man, to be the art of developing and cultivating the various physical, intellectual, aesthetic, and moral faculties ; and may thence be divided into four branches-physical, intellectual, aesthetic, and moral education. This definition is by no means complete; but it is used merely as indicative or the manner in which this subject has generally been discussed. Under physical education is included all that relates to the organs of sensation and the muscular and nervous system. Intellectual education comprehends the means by which the powers of the understanding are to be developed and improved, and a view of the various branches of knowledge which form the objects of instruction of the four departments above stated. "Education is not that which smothers a woman with accomplishments, but that which tends to consolidate a firm and regular character-to form a friend, a companion, and a wife."-Hannah More. "Though her (Lady Elizabeth Hastings') mien carries much more invitation than command, to behold her is an immediate check to loose behavior; to love her was a liberal education."-Steele.
