tha manner jn which tbe bonds wars de-

against the school honse, sod almost the
entire membership of tbe cborches were

surprised tbst tbe saloons opposed a
school-bonse, for the more we hsve of
them the less will wliitbey dens be pat
ronized. Bat we are both surprised and
erjrry to know that zealons chorcb mem
bers, and friends of temperance and law,
worked for the same object, when their
effort should have been exerted io the op
. posite direction. Saloons thst are now
, under license granted in violation of law,
were kept open on an election day, in
.gross violation of a distinct provision of
law, and men were openly taken ioto

Directors wanted to steil a portion of the
money asked for! Tbe members of the
Board have hitherto passed in the com-
annuity for honest men. They have been
giving their best efforts, without psy, to
keeping np as seapectable a school as cir
cumstances would admit of. Tbey bsve
been compelled to procure the U6e of a
room for a portion of tbe school, that was
actually dangerous lo the health of tbe
children, and to which many who voted
against tbe bonds refused to send their
children. Yet, when these Directors
naked for means to build a good bonte,
'tbey were refused, and told they wanted
to. steal the money! The District Tresi
nrer is required te give seffioieat bonds
for tbe faithful discharge of his duties;
and when an additional amount of money
ia to pass into bis hands, be is required
to give additional bonds. Besides, the
annual school election would have ocsur
Ted before tbe bonds could hsve been
issued; and if Ibe present Directors were
.not deemed trustworthy, men could bave
been chosen who were so.
. We have men in our community, who
Ibave bstn sending their children away to
school, because we hal no school here fit
to send them to, and have paid for tbeir
'schooling, in one year, as mucb as tbeir
lax on the bonds would beve been in
three years. Yet'wben an oppertunity
offered to secure a school that would
meet their wants, and would bring pu
"pils bere, instead of driving them away,
.they voted and worked sgainsl it. It
was also pictured to Ibe people, bow men
of capital would be driven from town by
.voting such a tax npon them. Capital
lists who loan tbeir thousands at nsu-
'rlous interest, and return to the assessor,
ft , - -
under ostb, for taxation, fewer hundreds

would be driven out by the heavy taxes!
Heaven save the mark!

Aa Ioaporlant Law.
Our Legislature has made one decided
step in tbe direction of legal reform. We
refer to the passsge of tbe act allowing
persons accused of crime tn testify in their
own cases. It will be seen that the scope
of tbe law is even wider tban this, and
allow husbands, wives, and other parties
heretofore exclnded; to testify. We copy
the law Iron yesterday's D'i'y Common
wealth. It will not be in force until af
ter its publication in the weekly edition
of tbat paper, on next Tuesdsy:
An Act lo amend an act entitled "An act

tion; or by reason of being tbe bmband
or u lie of tbe accused; bat any ofsucb
facts may be shown for the pnrpoe of
affecting his or ber credibility; Provided.
Tbat no per'ons on trial or examination,
nor wile or husband of such person be

belislf of the person on trial or examina
tion; and provided further, that the neg
lect or refusal of tha person on trial to

in tbe case, nor aball tbe same be con
sidered by tbe court or jury before whom
tbe trial takes place.
Sec 2 If the accused hll not avail
himself of his right to testify in any case,
it shall not bo construed to affect bis inno
cence or guilt.

Thionville, where I now write from,
was nearly wrecked by the bombardment.
Twenty thousand shells tell in town, and
there was hardly a bouse but wasstiurk.
Strange to ssy, but one inhabitant was
killed. The fortress is of immense
strength, and every precaution was taken
to render it impregnable. Thoosands of
beautiful trees were cut down that they
might not interfere with the range of the
gons, yet toe lorliucations have hardly
been touched; they are as strong as 'they
ever were. Tbe Prussian shells went
right over them, and by tlu devaatation
they wrought in the town compelled tbe
commandant to yield.
The Chicsgo Tribune discusses the
alarm which is felt at the andden tri
umph of Germany. It says:
"It is Q significant fact when England
stands appalled at tbe unfurling of tbe

nation which hss born that flag farther
and more ruihlesaly tbsn even the Roman
Empire itself, and whirb has never al
lowed it to be fnrled in a very largo part
ol tier dominions, stand in no good light
to rebuke Germany for having ended a
war of self defeoca by annetiog provinces
which she claims as necessary to her fu
ture defeace and security.,. We are not
wholly prepared to admit tbat tbe rising
power.of Germany may bave an inju

of Gteat Britain. It will cause th aris
tocracy of Englsndto feel its independence
on the workiog masses of .bngland and
Ireland more, for on their bone and brawn
alonecan she depend in her hour of dan
ger. vNJsuslIy the peiiods of Englad's na
tional extremity have been those in which
her people, and especially the Irish peo
ple, have npproaclied nearest to a t
isfactory adjostment of their rights. fA
three months' war with Germany wonld
lay bare as much weakness, rottenness,
and fraud in England as it has done in
France, and might bring tbe aristocracy,
land monopoly, suffrage monopoly, and
legislative monopoly, by which Great
Britain is governed, into as condign con
tempt as now overwhelms tbe receot
Bonspart Empire. War is a grevous
