j properly, but if they neglect their duties
It is probable that no one will deny the! jn this matter, they have" no ground of
assertion, that, next to religious institn-j complaint against others who haveauthor
tions, those ot education .should occupy j i;y t0 i0 what they themselves leave nn
the highest place in the interests of the i tionc. Another duty which parents owe,
community. Those founders of States. not only to their children, but to those
who may with any degree of propriety be j w,om they employ as teachers, is that of
regarded as wise, have made provision, in j visiting the school-room. If this was
the beginning, for both the religious and : f.,5 mily performed, many of the coin-f-ccular
instruction of their children. Fol- j plaints now made would be seen to be
lowing the example of the Puritans, wher- groundless. Then we say to the parents

side by side. Ar.d the people of this State
have not been negligent in this thing.
Notwithstanding a variety of adverse in
fluences, there have been those who have
lelt a deep interest in, and have labored
faithfully to promote, the educational in
stitutions of the State. How far they have
been successful every man is witness.
Much remains to be done, to secure the
perfection of our School Laws. This may
be said of older Slates, hence no censure
of past legislation is implied
Fortunately ior the citiz-ns of this eitv. i
they have secured the right to legislate
for themselves in school alfairs. and hence
are not comnellea to await the tardy ac
tion of legislative bodies. Willi this pow
er in their hands, ard stimulated u effort
by men who feel the worth of education,
they have been gradually advancing the
grade of their public school-;, until in con
sideration of the recent act of the City
Council, it may be safely said, that there
are no public schools in the State, which
oiler greater advantages for securing a fon,nva statement of facts concerning the

for equal rank here. V"e are not among
those who believe that our schools have
reached a state of perfection, and that no
more can be done. We believe that very
much remains to be done. 1'ut when we
con&ider what has been accomplished dur
ing the last two or three Years. m;d:r the
of tin
nporintendent una j
Principal, we find much encouragement.
The lines have been distinellv drawn be-
tween the different departments
pupils are not allowed as formerly to pass
from one department to another, as they
chance to be pleased with the teacher.
One great object has been secured, when
the children have been taught their places
and made to keep them. A toirit of em
ulation has been awakened, by a course
of rigorous examinations, with certiiieates
of honor for those who are successful, and
in due time graduating cards, by the au
thority; and under the seal of, the city.
Those who have attended the examina
tions at the close of each of the last two
qiiar'es, testify to the interest awa-
kened by them- an interest which could
not have been felt without them. We are
well aware that some complaints have
been made in regard to the general man -
agement of the school. It has
that there are loo many pupils lor the !
number of teachers. Hut every teacher j
of experience knows that in a properly
graded school, til'ty scholars can be taught !
as well as thirty. It is said that large
numbers are deprived of the privilege of j
attending school, through lack of aceom i
raodation in the school-rooms. Pat the ;
recent acted the Council, the provisions!
ot which are to be carried out. as soon as j
they consistently can be, removes ihis
difficulty. Besides, if these children, who
cau find no place in the school rooms had
been scat to school, as ihey ought to have
been, there cm a bo no doubt but that pro
vision would have been in ado for them

lav as it is necessary, the real objects t
try. the real objects to
be gained ia attendance upon our schocls
are defeated. Parents should remember,
that although they may live in their own
homes, without exercising but little re-
St mint over their children, vet v. hen forty
or fifty children are brought together in a j
school rocm, they must be subjected to
the most rigid discipline or nothing .of
i worth can be accomplished. Besides, they
I should remember, that the common law.
i if not the statute law, recognizes the fact,
that when they commit their children to
j the care of a teacher, they virtually dele
gate to that teacher for the time being pa
rental authority. If. therefore, they would
keep the discipline of their children in
their own hands, they must exercise it
that position, you must do this in the most
effective way, by properly training your
children, interesting yourselves in the
progress which they make in their studies
both at home and in the school-room, and
then if you feel that you have just cau-e
for complaint, go to your teacher, as you
would to your servant and seek a remedy
in the most reasonable way, and not go
about uttering indiscriminate censure con
cerning matters of which you know noth
ing at all.

Mr. IVngra and .Mr. Henderson both
called upon the Yreka Journal while in

from an account of the conversation with
Mr. Pengra that he was consider.! blv con
fused. Mr. Henderson crave a straight
ex pressed, see another column, whilst he
stood a solitary mourner at the grave of
a loved brother upon the heigh 's of Arling

like Sylvester Pennoyer, whose very
heart is bl.ifk witn the dern d lem-itirm of
foul treason, can appreciate the feelings
of a man in such a position, or have the
least sympathy in common with the
and relatives of our Nation's llon-

An excessively happy couple passed
through this city on Siyidoy last, in search
of some congenial clime in which to spend
their remaining days. This is all proper
enough in a general way. but the story
we hear told of this couple leads us to
fear that the happiness they seek will not
be found ti'l they reach some spot, where
they can bury the recollection of those
they left behind" them. The story is as
bllows : A young woman of prepossessing came aboard of one of the
P. T. Co."s boa's at an up river town, and
procure ! a ticket, to Portland. When th..'
boat arrived at Salem she was visited by
a well dressed gentleman who lived in
j the same neighborhood with her. Soon
; afterward4 she left the boat and preeeed-
e l to
note! in Salem, and secured a seat
in the stage. A former neighbor of hers,
happening to be present when the stage
started, was surprised to see the husband
of another woman take his seat beside her.

message to his family. Xo. keep your

The last number of the larmer
thus illustrates the good effects of
railroads upon agriculture: . Very
lar-e amounts of farm products
are hauled from the upper portion
of the Willamette Valley to Port
land. Say that it takes a farmer,
livincr within ten miles of Eugene
Citv eiaht daysto make the round
trip to Portland and back, with a
load of three thousand pounds.
Ten men in charge of a railroad
freight train would deliver one
hundred times that amount, or one
hundred and iifty tons at each end
of that route within one day, and
that from day to day, that is, the
ten men's labor, combined with
railroad faclties, would move as
much freight between Portland
and Eugene City, as could eight
hundred men and sixteen hundred
good work horses. Here is the
saving of the time and strength
ot all those men and horses at
least seven days out of each eight
that it world take them to move
the farm products of the country
over the distance mentioned.
Say that the farmer markets his
crop by railroad at a saving often
cents on each bushel of wheat, this
would be equivalent to an enhance
ment of the profits upon his crop to
the amount of two dollars per acre
of 20 bushels per acre, and that is
equal to a rise of -sK'per acre upon
land that will yield an average of
20 bushels per acre, besides leav
ing hint seven davs out of the
eight to prepare for another crop
that is as certain to yield him a
greater profit as that it costs him
less to get it to market.
