The School Fund and tho Bible.
In a telegram dated tho 21st of
October we are informed that "the
great hall of the Cooper Union was
filled, with people who desire that
the school fund shall not be used for
sectarian purposes, and that the Bible
shall.be read in the public schools."
What a contradiction! They insist
that the school fund shall not bo dis
tributed among the denominational
schools, and then say that the Bible
must be read in every public place
of learning. Is not this the very
quintessence of sectarianism? They
lay down the law as to what the sect
shall be, and then say that all other
religious bodies must adapt them
selves accordingly. In other words
they say, only those who believe in
the Bible shall have any of the bene
fits derivable from the school fund.
If this is not a sectarian appropria
tion, and an appropriation on a grand
scale, then we admit our ignorance
concerning this much mooted sub
ject. Catholics, Hebrews, Unitari
ans, and the various skeptical
creeds, cannot in conscience accept
the Bible, and these fanatics at New
York insist upon ramming it down
their throats, and upon keeping all
the school fund for their own partic
ular sect. In this matter of church
and school, there are but two courses
which can, with justice toward all,
be followed. Either we must have a
complete secularization in schools,
or else religion in every shape must
bo entirely eschewed in the school
room and left to the fireside and the

Yesterday ft representative of the
Bulletin was admitted to the rooms
of the Central Pacific building on
Towuseud street, where the superb'
collections of Pacific coast specimens
for exhibition at Philadelphia are
being stored away and classified.
For the past 18 months the land de
partment of the corporation has been
industriously seeking out and gath
ering together the finest mineral,
cereal, ornithological, and zoological
collection ever secured on this coast.
Besides this, the exhibit will em
bracein fact, already embraces
some of the largest collections of
marine, land and fresh-water shells
ever shown. Moreover, specimens
of all the coals of the Pacific region
hare been secured. They represent
fully 100 different grades, from the
finest shasta to the commonest slate
mixed fctoue. The timber of the coast
is represented by specimens, green,
2)olished and petrified. There are
also cuts from old monarehs of the
forest, whereupon approximate esti
mates of the rainfall for two centuries
past are made in tho rings which in
dicate tho yearly growth. "To con
vince the incredulous ones of the
accuracy of estimating the moisture
of past decades and centuries by this
method, a butt cuti.s. shown which
was taken from a tree planted 17

thereon engraved compared with the
annual registers preserved on paper
by official meteorological societies.
It ia an easy task to satisfy the ob
server that the variation in the esti
mates is hardly perceptible, and on
this basis the amount of moisture in
the past its approximated. It wouldl
require the space of an ordinary vol
ume to mention the full list of speci

they represent birds of every plum

Almost every day tne telegraph in

Badical officeholder, or the unearths
ing of some great Badical fraud.
For ten years Pennsylvania has been
under the control of a Badical ring
that in its magnitude is excelled by
nono in the United States. Bill
Mann, ex-District Attorney of Phila
deljdiia, is generally looked upon as
the Boss, while every Bepublicah
officeholder. throughout tho State is
a servant of his "during good behav
ior." Being. an astute criminal law
yer, he is foxy enough to cover his
tracks; but tho following dispatch,
bearing date of the 21st inst., shows
to what extent his robberies have
been successful, and how closely ho
has been tracked to his lair.
cThe committee appointed by the
Pennsylvania House of Representa
tives to investigate the affairs of the
treaty, have agreed upon a report,
stating that their investigation has
developed the following facts: That
from 1801 to 1874 there appears to
be a yearly overcharge on the interest
account on the public debt, the dif
ferent treasurers taking credit for
paying more interest than the State
debt owes. The aggregate thus un
lawfully taken from the State treas
ury in eleven years would amount to
$1,123,301. Second, that from 1870
to 1874 there appears to have been
an excesB premium charged in pur
chases0 of gold to pay interest on
gold bearing bonds, amounting to
$121,420. Many other minor frauds
come under the notice of the com
mittee. In referring to the action of
the ex-treasurera in refusing to ap
pear before the committee, the report
says: Certainly it is fair to assume
all the charges are true, as the treas
urers do not appear when lawfully
subpoenaed, and explain or deny

Tlie Great Anti-Periodic.
Tho certainty and promptitude with
which Uotetter'i Stomach Bitters con'
quer the most obstinate cases of mala
rial disease, and tha complete protec
tion which they afford the system
against the miasmatic poison which im
pregnates the air of low-lying, marshy
localities, stamp them as tho foremost
of American antiperiodics. Wherever
ton tins continent lever and ague is a
regular visitant in the bottom lands
of tho South, the new clearings and
mining districts ofthe West, and in all
localities in the Bastern and Middle
States where malaria prevails, the let
ters aro recognized as the only true spe
ciil'j for the disease, and its most relia
ble proventivo. They are, moreover, a
safe and agreeable as well as a certain
remedy, and on this account are im
measurably superior to the preparations
of quinine arsenic, bismuth, and other
mineral poisons mistakenly adminis
tered as curatives for maladies caused
by miasma, and which if persisted in
work irreparable injury to the consti
tution. Unfortunately, fiiver and ague, and
tho other febrile complaints generated
by miasma, aro not theonly evils which
result from it. A great variety of dis
orders are superinduced by tlie irrita
tion which it causes. Among these are
neuralgia, rheumatism, gout, eriodi
cal headache, palpitation, painful affec
tions of tho hipleon, and various de
rangements ot tho Mtomach. When
traceable to malaria, tho above affec
tions are apt to assume, like the disease
which originated them, an intermittent
typo; that is to say, thev recur at regu
lar intervals. Jlostetter's bitters, how
over, obviates them all, by banishing
tho miasmatic virus from the system.
Tlie Word "Sozodont,"

"SOZO DON'T" a preserver ofthe teeth.
