the American ship Newkirk, several years

where the vessel was becalmed, in an attack
of ten days duration, by the Islanders, from
the cuiet of the attacking lrib., and waa
presented to Mr. Price by the chief engin

a desperate looking weapon, and otus of
sufficient power, it skillfully handled, to

PROF. L. J. P0W' uailkis.
Following are a few iteis from lecture
on oublic schools, by PrtV- L' J- Powell,
Superintendent of Public nstructi .de
livered at the Cojrt HouseV Wednesday
The common schools are thl- means by
whicl the ireat m-.isses are d&fH,,')l If
these schools are neglected, or irA'sifed,
ou youths will not receive thst cdftuje
ncessar- to make useful men and women.
The idea that tin-re can le too much edu
cation is fui e There cannot lie too much
culture uuioiig the young. The directors
and parents should interest themselves in
these schools to attend ihetn frequently
and see how the pupils are advanci. g, and
ascertain whether the buildings are kept
in proper cone it iou. The success of schools
rest on the matter of means. Competent
teachers must be pa'd or thi y cannot per
form the duties successfully. There should
he unn in unity of sentiment regarding the
regulation of public schools. The schools
i-aiinoi be conducted according to lashion
and wishes ol each particular individual
Every one shout I conform to the general
wish. There are imiw rlecnons in the free
kIi.miI system, but il is the best that can be
devised at present, and we should, work
under it with unflagging z-al. in all re.
siects. let us nave the schools possi
bly under the circumstance. The olj -ct ol"
public wihools is to place education within
i he reach of every you'll. It is the object
not to eiiurate the youth above labor hi. t
to it To furnish the'yoitth, wiio are una
ble to attend) colleges, with liberal culture
Is the design ot the free -cliools. To do
this, there must be money to support he
schools. The Legislature should provide
a school tax. The people would endorse
such a measure. There must e citiu e
tent teachers and a live Omu'v Superin
tendent. Toe time of the Suiieriiitendeni
should be devoted xclunive y to ihe duties
of his office. A salary should l urovided
that he may do this. Lei the people re-
memiter thev must sustain these schools.

Wanton Waste.
Every Sunday a number o boys and
men congregate at the mill dam south of
this city, and spend the day killing salmon
for sport, and after the fish are h -oked nr.d
drawn from the water they are thrown
upon the sand and there allo vnd to thp
themselves to death and af erwards rot.,
Xea'ly every on of the fish dest royed are
thus stopped before they reach the soa fil
ing grounds; and in this way the n'iiber
of fish that otherwise would be found in
our rivers and smaM streams is decreased
immeasureably. This is wrong. A sinyle
sensible man would not ergitge in such
want in was. e of future reliable food.
