PEACE ON EARTH, TO MEN OF
We have before us parts of a sermon
about to be published. It is from lhe
Right Reverend G. W. Doane, Bishop of
New Jersey, and has reference to the
question of peace or war between the
United States and Great Britain. The
Bishop, it will be recollected, was in
vited to preach a dedication sermon in
He aocopted the call, and
ably discharged the duties which it in-
eluded. The sermon seems to contain
much of his observations on that country;
and on the question of national peace, he
brings his observations to bear with good
We make a few extracts illustrative of
the author's views:
Let me say more upon this. You

In vain may Santa Anna strive,
To lay young Texas low;
Her infant stroke he can't survive,
Bat falls beneath its blow.
This raging despot's vaunting band,
Has once before her fled;
And beg'd at her forgiving hand,
His rescue from the dead.
Ungrateful Tyrant, now to rise,
A deadly war to wage;
Well may he fall a sacrifice,
To injur'd Texas' rage.
While Texas ask's each Freeman's aid,
To fight in freedom's cause;
And worthless fees her land invade,
Regardless of her laws;
Will we, her Friends, stand idle by,
And see her banner fall ?

As to a sister's call,
And join that little valiant pow'r
Which brave's a ruthless foe;
And aid in danger's darkest hour,
To stay the tide of wo.

Messrs Editors :
The lime is approaching when it
wi I he necessary for tha Directors
of the different seho. 1 Townships
orgnrizd under the act of Februa
ry 9th 1839, to malio their repiits
to the Cleik of the County Court.
Iy reference to the Law, it will be
seen that these reports must be made
between the first day of June, and
the first day of September. Mo re
ports were made during the last year;
or ifnnde, never reached the Super
intendant of Common Schools, at Jef
ferson. In consequence of this, eve
ry township in the county failed to
receive the portion of '"Slate School
.Monies" to which it would have been
entitled, if these reports had been
made, as required by law, imd the
sum of near $19,000 revertrd to lhe
principal of the Sta'e Si-hocd Fund,
instead of being distributed among
the School Townships of tho State.

ests to secure its portion for the ensu
ing year. This can only be deno by
a rigid performance of duty, on the
part of the officers of the Township.
and the County Court Cletk; and il
not done, they become liable to the
penalties of the law. Another stimu
lus to efficient organization is, the
County School Fund. This fund, fir
the current year, amounted to about
.320, and was divided among four
school townships ono receiving as
high as .$90. These two funds add
ed to the township fund, will, in many
townships of this county, and in the
State, relieve lhe pcoplo of the bur.
den of tuition, to a very great extent ;
and if the children of our county are
not educated, the fiu't will lie at our
own door. We have only to tax our
public spirit a little, and be careful in
the selection of efficient, and active
officers, and teachers, and education
will be universally diffused through
out the community.
liet mo recommend then, Messrs.
Editors, to the Directors of the differ
ent Townships, not to postpone malt
ing their repjrt, to the latest possible
period when it may be done, but to
have them prepared and in the pos
session of tho Clerk of the County
Court, by the middle of June, at
farthest. They will then have done
their duty, and the fault will bo the
Clerk's if they do not receive a por
tion of the County and State School
monies for the next year.

It is that generous expansion of mind'

both sides of the question; and never al
