2396. EDUCATION, Higher.—[continued].

The greatest good [of
the people] requires, that while they are instructed
in general, competently to the common
business of life, others should employ
their genius with necessary information to
the useful arts, to inventions for saving labor
and increasing our comforts, to nourishing
our health, to civil government, military
science, &c.—
