Tl e opinion that a failure to supply
the rising generation with proper and
adequate facilities to acquire a common
school education is rapidly gaining
ground, and we are glad to . learn that
the legislature at its late session incor
porated into tlie school law of the Ter
ritory an article requiring parents,
guardians and others, who have control
of children between the ages of
and to keep them at a public or
private school at least months rin
each year. The system of compulso y
cducatiou is not new. It existed in a
most ritriiland thorough form in the
ancient Grand lie-publics, aod iucluded
physical as well as mental culture. The
high literary and intellectual eminence
and the splendid physical development
attained by them is attributed, by manj,
to this system. It. has also for m:ny
years teen the settled policy of Prussia
and other European States. At first
thought it may be regarded as an inter
ference with the reserved rights of the
people, as an unwarrantable exercise
of power by the state or a nation.
JSut the slightest reflection will, we
think, satisfy everyone that legislative
authority constitutionally and rightfully
embraces this subject.
Among the reasons that exist to sup
port legislation of this character may
be mentioned, that all governments pos
sess the power not only to punish but
to prevent the commission of crime.
Jnorance is a fruitful source of crime.
Criminals, in a large majority of cases,
ure ignorant, and.it being one of the
plainest duties of the government to
punish crime, it must necessarily have
the power to remove or destroy the cause
by any means which will not infringe
the inalienable rights 01 the citizen.
If, 'therefore, ignorance produces crime,
it is proper for the government to pro
vide that ignorance shall no longer ex
ist. Taxation is imposed on all for the
support of free schools, whether the tax
payer has children to be educated or
not, on the frinciple that, the whole
jgtato is one family, and that education
should be provided for all alike. Tho

slate stands in loco parentis, so far as
education is concerned, and if parents
or guardians neglect or refuse to pro
vide educational advantages, the govern
ment, having regard for the interest and
welfare of the whole people may compel
the performance of an obligation rest
ing upon those who have, by the laws
ot nature or otherwise, the custody of
the rising generation.
The right of parents to keep their
children in ignorance is subordinate to
the rights of government to make them
good and valuable citizens. In every
well regulated government parents are
compelled by Jaw to support and main-
tain their children during minority if
they have the ability to do so. If, then,
government ean compel parents to pro
vide food and clothing for tho bodies of
their children, by parity of reasoning,
it can compel ihera to feed and clothe
their minors : as the law referred to
directly aGects a large majority of the
citizens of the Territory and imposes
penalties fur a non compliance with its
provisions, we will publish the' amended
school law in full, so soonas we can ob
tain a full copy. ,

Perfecte Lopez, a patriot captured
by the Spanish volunteers, was tried by
court martial on the 2Gth ult., and grrr-
roted on the morning of the 27th, at
the Castle of Principe. He saluted the
brutal crowd, showing the shackles
which pinioned him, when at the foot
of the steps leading to the platform,
and the officers in charge of him vol
unteers. of course fearing that he

YVhtni he sat down on the bench, it wa?
found to be too low to allow .is neck to
come 'up to ihs fatal irpn collar. 'J he
second time he sat it was too low. At
last, after the: filth attempt, 'the garble
was adju-ted round the throat. The
brutal instrument, retained solely by
modern Spain, was h badly arranged
that it broke on th" first twist given to
the screw by the executioner, aud then
the victim h;id to be lilted up, whi e
with his bend hanging in the collar, the
"3i rote was repaired. When Lopez
sat down the seventh tirue beseemed to
.-train bis nerve for one supreme effirt,
aud lifting his hands to heaven yelled
forth, in a voice hoard by the whole ns-
semblcd crowd, ' Death to Spain !"
What followed is conceivable only of
cannibal"?. Two volunteer officers as
cended to the p'atform, and, to prove to
the blood t hi sty volunteers, tji t their
victim was really dead, they lifted him
from the bench several times; they'
made the executioner give several more
twists to the sctew, and took the fae'e of
the corpse which was an nndisfin
guishable mass of bloody flesh, with the
eyca protruding from tho sockets in
their hand-, turning it toward the peo
ple. A brutal yell in favor of the honor
of Spain put an cud to the terrible
The report of thn horrible massacre
of the whole Town Council of Jaguani
committed by Canizalcs, by direct order
received from Colonel Canizalcs, by di
rect order received from Colonel Val-
maseda, has been confirmed. Colonel
Canizalcs, as soon as he took posssession
of his new command in that town, had
all the members of the Municipal
Council brought to. him and told them
to prepare to die, for they would all be
shot withiu two hours; and, without
any accusation being brought against
them, or even the farce of a trial, they
were all taken out and shot.
From Manzanillo some three hundred
persons have been sent in exile to Ja
maica. Ihey were mostly old women
from GO to 80 years of age, and young
children. The majority havo been
brought in from the town of Bavamo,
and the sole crime imputed to them,
was suspected sympathy with the pa
triot. Apart from the dread which
such barbarous measures prove 13 en
tcrtained by tho Spaniards of the vital
ity of the revolution, this wholesale dc
portation of people looked upon as
criminals by the Spaniards is likely to
breed trouble. Jamaica has already
loudly protested against being made a

of laud. About one-third, say 33,000,

estimated that 89,000000 acres are
suitable to gome kind of husbandry.
Of these 40,000,000 acres are fit for the
plow, and 49,000,000 acres for grazing,
fruit-growing, and other purposes. The

"We call the attention of our readers
to the following from the Pacific Count
Advertiser, a journal published in the
interests of advertisers, aud wholly in
dependent in politics, n bile it is di
rected mostly to the Legislature ot Cali
fornia, yet it shows the feeling of many
influential journals concerning the re
election of President Grant:
' If the Republican party fails of
success iu the coming Presidential con
test, it will be .because of its own
blunders. The great danger to the
party arises from its own magnitude,
which present the great possibility of
errors in policy and in its selection of
executive olliccrs. The remark applies
to the party iu this State, as well as to
National organizations. It is natural
that there should be opponents to the
President, as well as that he should
have varm supporters iu his own party.
General Giant evidently appreciates
tins state of things, and is anticipating
the danger, by the course pursued iu
his annual message A more judicious
document has rarely been presented to
Congress, or laid before the people. The
document cannot fail to meet the ap
proval of clear-headed Republicans,
and can but satisfy a large portion of
the Democracy. It presents no issues
that will produce dissension iu Con
gress, and contains trB opinionated dog
mas for party guidince. It is sugges
tive rather than mandatory or even ad
visory, and is calculated to inspire
greater confidence in the administration
throughout the country. It is to be
hoped that the differences heretofore
existing between the friend of Senator
Sumner aud the Executive in ry be
healed by ygt re-instating that gentle
man as Chairman of the Committee oti
Poreiirn Relations, which position he
lad graced lor many years, with credit
o the party and honor to the nation.
This would be an important step that
would greatly conduce to the harmony
ot the partv even where.

From an Kastcm exchange we clip
the following :
44 After hearing a most Munchausen-
like story about a man who was blown
into miuufe fragment, Charles Lamb
thought it was a pity the man could not
have been collected and preserved, he
would have been such an ornament to
society. What that 4 collected ' man
would have looked like is possibly man
ifest in a mutilated mariner now on oc
casional exhibition in London, who is
inscuiounly and elaborately tattooed
from head to foot. The story rutis that
this sailor is one of three similarly or
namented and ornamental individuals
who alone escaped after this tattooing,
which was done by tho Chinese with
poisonous coloring, calculated to produce
a slow but terrible death. Tho question
naturally arises why, when tho death of
the sailors was the main object, such
extraordinary efforts should have been
made to convert them into elaborate
works of art ? And it will be new to
most travelers and readers that tho
Chinese are given to tattooing for any
purpose. But the surviving sailor is
said to have shown himself to tho 1)U
rectors of tho British Museum and to
have sold his skin, to be taken off wheu
he has uo further use for it, to that in
stitution for tho delight and instruction
of tho yonth of England. Meanwhile,
with the privilege, probably, of private
ly exhibiting his hide, for a considera
tion, not for commiseration, the sailor
enjoys tho annuity granted by tho
Museum in return for the' skin to be
delivered by-and-by. This, as a finan
cial transaction, beats the closest shav
ing, and this literal discounting of one's
own skin is ahead even of the two per

A New Railway I'kecaution. A
Michigan railroad compauy has attached
to thirty.four of its locomotives a new
style of alarm bell. The bell is m at
tached that when the engine goes, the
bell rings, being struck by the hammer
once at each revolution ot the driving
wheels. Being placed directly in front
of the boiler, the sound of tho bell is
seldom heard by the engineer or fire
man on the engine, and cannot be heard
ou the train; consequently it is no an
noyance to passengers, while, it is
claimed, its position causes the pound
to be thrown forward, and conducted,
by the earth and railroad track or rails,
so that it can bo heard a considerable
distance in advance of the train, thus
giviDg timely warning. The General
Superintendent of the road thinks some
recent accidents would have been cer
tainly prevcuted by the use of this in
vention. How to Put the Children to

reproof for any of that day's sins of
omission and commission, lake any
other time but bed-time for that. If
J you ever heard a little creature sighing

never do this. Seal their closing eye

rosy youth. Nor need this involve wild

so mistake my meaning. If you have
ever met tho man or woman whose
eyes have suddenly filled when a little
child has crept trustingly to its mother s
breast, you may have seen ono in wnose
