As w e Like up tbe pen lo begin this article,
"the rain, the rain, the g ntle rain' is coming
down upou the dry and thirsty earth. It is
sweet to look upon the summer rain when all
things are EufT'-iiag for its ministry aud re-
juice under its refreshing influence. Let us
hurry through these hasty paragraphs, and
from the opeu window watch it as it falLs.
The Ga?'tte. Such of the public as may
chance ti glance at the Gazt'le without read
ing it, must not think that our neighbor is
going to discuss the splendid little platform
of the Union party because he takes "The
Enforcement of the Laws"' as the subj.ct of
his leading article. He merely means to
show what "Judge Guolsox of the Virginia
Circuits" said about the enforcement of
"them thing-?" iuhis address to one of the
grand juries. A large majority of cur read
ers would no doubt like to know the general
drift of what Judge Giioi.son said to that
jnry, and also what the jury though about it
alter he had said it; but we have'ut got room
enough in these columns to tell people all
they want to know, nor half they ought to
know; and so, for further particulars wc
must refer them to the Gazelle Vol, XVII,
No. 537 S.
77"ie I'tiuii. With the tenacity of grim
death to a deceased African, the Union still
clings to "Mr. Dell and his pa.-;t hi.-tory con
nected with the public service." We prom
ised iu our last to do the reader the kindness
to leave this subject in the hands of our
Ereckiuridge contemporary, and it is not our
intention to violate that promise. The
Union's last article on the subject is about
three columns long, and, from a rough calcu
lation, contains 700 lines, 7,000 words, and
30,600 letters. And yet, with all this mag
nificeut display of dictionary and printer's
materials, aud although the article is very
gracelully written, its true value is not above
that of an attempt to establish the theory
that the moon is made of green cheese. It
is a melancholy spectacle to see so much la
bor expended to so little purpose.
The Iliinmr. The Lrcckinrioge newspapers
aud speakers are "charging disunion senti
ments upon Joun Cell," and the Dtmner
writes a leading article about it. We tha i
do nothing of the sort. It is u't at all neces-
sa-y. It ail tue Lreckiandgc Democrats
fcru th of Mason and J).xon s Line were to
3-vear that Mr. Cell entertains the shadow
of a disunion sentiment, they wouldn't be
lieve it themselves. There is not much
danger, then, that they will make anybody
else believe it. Au attempt is being made to
prove that Mr. Dell is also an Abolitionist.
According to the same authority,
In 1S40, Gen. Harrison was an '-Altoliliouisi;'
la 1844, Henry Ciay was an "Abolitionist;"
Iu 1S4S, Gen. T;ylor wa an Abol tiouist;
In lS.V2,Gcn. Scott wasan "Abolitionist;"
la 156. Mr. Fillmore was au uAIol:tion:.-;t;"
and it would be a little singular it Mr. Bell
were not an "Abolitionist" too. If to be
made the in.-trnment in the bands of Heaven
for the abolition of the Democratic party is
to be aa Abolitionist, why, then, it can't be
dented that Mr. Cell has become very obnox
ious to the charge. Cut it is not his fault
it is merely bis manifest destiny, the accom
plishment of which will w in for him

They "shall be elected by the Board ot Mayor

Mr. Pearl was appointed Superintendent
November 11, and began his duties' Decem
ber 9, 18.14, and six days after a law was
passed, "That, in order more effectually to
enable the Board of Education to put the
system of public schools into operation, the
public school funds should be placed at the
disposal of the Board of Education." "The
Board shall make semi-annual reports to this
Board (of Aldermen) of the amount of mon
ey expended bv the Public Schools, and how
expended." Has this law been obeyed? Is
there a penalty for not obeying it? January
lo, ltoo. "No elm t whose parent or guardian
does iioi live within the corporate limits ol
the city ot Nashville, w hether the parent or
guardian owns property and pays taxes there
on or not, shall be received in any of the
Public Schools, that are or may be establish
ed in the city of Nashville."
b -c 'i. "It shall be the duty of the Super
intendent to examine every child, as to
whether its parents are nou-resiilents or not.
and to reject all whose parents do not resid-
wiihiu the corporate limits of the cilv." I
have shown what is well known, that this
law ha3 been almost constantly violated, and
the Board have tacitly sanctioned the viola
tions by re-electing one who had resorted to
deliberate tricks to deceive them. Whv is
there no penalty for violating this law? Why
was tuts taw pusaeu it tue superintendent can
disregard it in so many dozens of ca.ses? Will
it rut op n the way tor bribery?
Aug. Z3J, 16JJ. - "No child shall be receiv

I have thus ljoked at 6omt cood laws that
Lave been repealed aud other absurd ones
that have been parsed in their place, but
have not looked at the great want ot other
laws for that would be to make the organ!
z ition what it ought to be, aud that would
be useless till the people see the present one
as it really is.
If the boys that have been studying Latin
111 these schools tor tbe last five vears
should coutinue the study seven years longer
tuey win pei naps not only understand Hie
Latin grammar, but they in 1? perhaps read
about some stables thit were hard to clean.
So it is tweuty times the trouble to remov
tae last five years work in this school busi
ness that it would have been to make it what
it should tie.
By the law last meutionrd. the Board is
el. cud in June, but their course in tkc ing
a superiuteudt ut is au inconsistency without
taw or precedent, that it behooves the people
to look iuto. Their official duties begin the
urst 01 Juiy, one 01 which is to elect a sa
perintendeut for the year lor which they are
tiecieu, out iney nave not been content with
tbis, but a day or two before their term of
oflice expires they have been in the habit of
electing a Superintendent for the next year,
thus extending their oCiciai acts over two
years, when they were only elected for one
year. Tnis is without law a precident What
right or power have they to control and fill
subordinate ollicesa year after their own offi
cial life expires? The idea is an absurdity,
and his acts a nullity. If they could control
the office one year after their term of cilice
ezpires then they could for ten years. I am
aware that by that absurd set ot "llules for
the government of Public Schools," by w hich
neither the Board nor the Superintendent,
nor the teachers are governed, he is to be el
ected ia Jane, but I am also aware that when
the new Board come into oflice, thiy, and not
the former Board have a right to control those
subordinate to themselves. But a serious
question for the people is, what was the ob
ject of the Board in thus seeking to control
tbe administration of the schools for two
years when they were elected but for one
year? 1 i:ia is so singular that the Doard owe
it to themselves to explain it. It has long
been known that the present Superinteudcut
is very unpopular with the people, so much
so that few persons would be willing to be in
the Board if tbe present incumbent were to
lie retained as superintendent. Have the
Board availed themselves of this state of
thiiics in order to continue the present man-
agemeut of the Schools? ' If liot, what bus
been the object? "
Aug. 2 J, !&, another law was passed
that the Supeiintendent should uot receive
pupils from the country even if they boarded
ia the city, but neither this nor the previous
law on the subject has prevented the Super
intendent from receiving large oumbeis from
out 01 the city, simply because no penalty
was attached to tbe law. It is a pity that
some one of legal attainments was not call
ed on to dralt a code of laws on the subject.
Had that been done tbey would have had the
form and force or law, lor a lawyer never
thinks of a probibatory law, without connect
ing with it a penalty for its violation. These
thiQg are done quit , differently ia other
States, and it is never thought that the pen
alty is derogatory to the office, but'that the
violation of the law is derogatory to the o'h-

of which work I can pet done for less thau

any member of tbe Board would dtry this,

have misunderstood the President. Besides
wbat silly nonsense it would be to make
such a denial, when by a law passed at tbe
request 01 the Doard, "Ihe Public school

ands ot dollars bad been wrongfully used.
It was also stated tbut they received no com
pensation. Granted. Yet nnder similar
powers and privileges a future Board and
Superintendent may use fo.OOO in bribery,
and yet pay themselves liberally, and tell
the people, they receive no compensation,
ask a committee or investigation, and even
defy the people unless it is investigated in
that great school of human liberty and rights
tbe duily press,
In New York fbey do business rather dif
ferently. They do not trust the great cause
of education to one set of men. Tbey not
only have different sets of officers but tbey
bold every man to strict accountability un
der oath, and if be is found to be in any way
interested in the expenditure of rroney, or is
neglectful of duty he is removed from office.
Bv tbe New 101k law, "It shall be the duty
of the said Doard to remove from omce any
Comtui-sioner. (member of the Board) In
spector or Trustee, who shall be. or become.
directly or indirectly interested by way of
commission or otherwise, in any contract or
undertaking for the furnishing of any snp-
plt s of books or materials, or for the per
forming of any labor or work, for auy of the
schools or buildings under its cnirgc? ' How
would tbe Board iu Nashville have been af-
f, cied by such a law, when they were giviug
work to tbemselvt s?
"No teacher shall be employed in any of
the Ward schools who is within four degrees
of relationship, .either by blood or marriage,
to any school omcers entitled to act upon
ihe question of the employment or pay meat
ot sucii teacner."
These are specimens of the prudencial
laws by which every thing connected with
th : sciiools is guarded in other cities. The
result is the cost ot the schools is about one
third of wbat it is iu Nashville. I wander
how they would answer in Nashville. When
I suggested to one of the Board the proprie
ty 01 some prudeniial course, be replied
withau air of disdain, "We wonld not em
ploy a man we could not place confidence in."
I have shown that "confideuce" has been ra
ther expensive to Nashville. The Philadel
phia Board say the economy ot their seboole
is due to extreme industry and constant su
pervision or the ofheers and "strict account
ability to which the controllers hold every
person they employ in each department."
Would this do any barm in Nash ville?

The following communication was presen
ted to the Board of Aldermen on Tuesday
evening last iu conformity with a resolution
adopted at a previous meeting requesting the
opinion of the gentlemen whose names are
affixed, as to the power of the City Council
under existing laws to prevent the N, & N.
W. R. R. Company from coming into the cor
porate limits of the city.
Oa motion of Aid. Cox, the opinion annex
ed was ordered to be published in the city
To llie Honorable Doard of Aldermen for tlte
City vf 'Nashville: Ia answer to the resolution
of your Board, passed on Monday, the 30th
of July, 1SC0, referring to us the question as
to the power ot the City Council under ex
isting laws- to prevent the Nashville and
Northwestern Railroad Company from com
ing into the corporate limits of the City of
.Nashville, wc reply as iollows;
The supreme Court of Tennessee in the
cxee of the Tennessee and Alabama Railroad
Company against Adams, at the last term of
the Court, decided that the right of the leg
islative power to authotize the building of a
railroad within a town or city, or upon a
street or other public highway is not now to
be doubted, and refer to the authority of cas
es decided by the Supreme Courts of New
York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. The
Court in that cae also says that the power
to come within the city of Nashville carries
with it, by implication, the power, if need be,
to locate the road upon a street or alley. So
me power iu cuter iuc tny oi uevessuy gives
the right to locate the road somewhere, and
if need be, upon a street or alley,
A city is a public corporation, an auxiliary
of the Government in the important busi
ness of municipal rule and the Legislature
bas much more control and power as the
trustee or guardian of the public interests
over a public than over private corporations
or individuals. By the power of eminent do
main, the L"gi-Iature cau authorize the tak
ing of the property of individuals, turnpike
companies, bridge companies, and other pri
vate corporatious for the constructions of
railroads or other public uses, much more
can it authorize the property of a public cor
poration to be taken for the same uses.
The net of 1&52, chapter 151, sec. 16, gives
to all railroad companies specified in that
act, and all other railroad companies hereaf
ter incorporated in the State,, tbe power to
construct their roads so as to cross erch oth
er, if necessary, by the maiu trunks or brau
ches, or to unite wilh each other or with the
branches thereof, etc. The act incorporating
the Louisville and Nashville Railroad autho
rise it to construct said railroad from the
Slate line to a point within or convenient to
the city of Nashville. The act incorporating
the Nashville and Northwestern Railroad
Company, declares that it is for the purpos
of establishing o communication by railroad
between Nashville and the Mississippi river,
beginning at Nashville, etc. In tbe act of
November, 1855, chap. 51, sec. 2, the Louis
ville and Nashville Railroad Company was
required to extend their road to some point
iu the city of Nashville, and for that purpose
within two years to build a good and sub
stantial bridge acn a 'Cumberland river. 1:.
By the act ot 15th of Decemcer, 18)5, c. a,.
7, sec. 2, the Edgefield and Kentucky Rail
road Company bad tbe right ot extending
their road from their depot in Edgefield so as
to unite with the Nashville and Chattanooga
railroad, or tbe Nashville and Northwestern
or the Tennessee and Alabama Railroads.
Section 7 of the same act requires theEdge-
Cll 1 T , T" ' 1 a
ueiu auu jveumcay xiauruau company
to cross the Cumberland river at Nashville.
The act of the 15th December, 1855, chapter
227, section 9, gives to all tbe railroad com
panies chartered or to be chartered, full pow-
pr to nnito in the nnrrhnso of crrnnnil r!rht
of way or other privileges necessary for, and

upon, in the construction of a common
bridge, Ac, and in tbe erection of aoy build
ings and fixtures useful for the convenient
transfer of passengers and freight from one
road to another. Tbe 11th section of said
act appropriates money for building the
bridge over the Cumberland, &c .
trom all these acts, it appears to be tbe
policy of the Legislature not only to au
thorize but to require the union of these rail-
