There cannot be too mncli interest
felt and encouragement given in tlie
direction of perfecting tlie plan and
securing an efficient development of
our common school system. As
public enlightenment or education
is the basis upon which rest the
corner stone of Republican govern
ment, do effort should be spared by
our Government and State authori
ties to bring the opportunities for
obtaining a good education within
the reach of every child. Every
township in the State should be or
ganised into one or more, as tlie
population is great or sfnall, school
districts; aud in each of these a
comfortable school house should be
built, having an eye iu its location
to the accommodation of tlie great
est Mather of patrons. Then
teacher holding a certificate of qual
iticatiou trocn the County Superin
tendent should be employed in etch
iobool fura period of at least six
months in each year, and no tuition
should be charged for attendance.
They should be wholly free. The
whole expense of building school
houses, hireing teachers, etc, should
be raised hjr taxation. A whins

nances ami uttering in doleful tones
that tliey arc being misrepresented
and placed in a false light before the
people. Like Carl Shurz in bis
malevolent criticism on tlie Presi
dent. He hesitated not to indulge
the most freely in spleenish diatribes
and falsehoods in that direction, but
the moment the finger of criticism
began to point out the stains of self-
fchncss, nIignity, greed and dia-
honesty which mottled his political
character aud record like spots upon
the back of a zebra, he wilted down
and began to complain that he was
being persecuted. The same spirit,
not of cowardice, but of sell-abne
gation from censure or molestation,
was shown by the the Democrats of
the South iu their efforts to break
iro the government After they had
exhausted tlie national treasury,
dismantled our Northern forts, sent
out navy on long voyages to for-
eign ports, removed most of our
soldiery to southern camps and de-
feoot, hod passed their articles of
secession, assembled their militia
and (bed upon the flag ot the na
tion at-Fort Sumpter, their appeal
to the nation was : "all we ask of
you is, let us alone." A fraction of
a party that arrogates to itself so
high an endowment of superiority
over its brethren in other States, in
point of integrity, wisdom and in-
emtaisteney, as is the case with the
Democracy in this State, should
show a degree of dignity and self
respect eommensurate with W bv
fisted claims, and not like a cow

descriptions of the most wonderful
discoveries in natural scenery made
by them, and recommending that
the region in which these ctrrtoeifies
were found be set apart by the Gen.

visited this section ot tlie country
and have added their testimony in
omroboration of the first descrip
tions, and have fully approved of
the recommendation. The idea of
setting apart this portion of our
