THE SCHOOL SYSTEM.
Mr. Suliot, tho writor of the following, is a vet'
eran educator. His suggestions are worthy of
v........v...,.u , ui Sum svoouis,
Salem and elsewhere. Tho most successful mcth-.
od of enlisting persons in any employment, is to
gire them a pecuniary interest in its success, and
an interest which shall increase ill the ratio of
SALEM, February 28th, 1854.
Dime Sir: I was surprised ami sorry to hear,
that thero was some uncertainty, not indeed about1
the efficiency of the Salem School, not about tho1
xeal and talent of its teachers, (for these rccin nn-!
spntcd,) but about its permanency on account
of the heavy pressuro of the school tax
As well wisher to Kducation all over tho world,
and partimiuirly in this the land of my adoption,
'I should lie sorry indeed if any modification should
be made in the system of tho school for any other
piuposu than for establishing it nn a firmer basis
and extending tho rango of its usefulness.
I surely need not waste words to show that all
the Inhabitants of this locality are deeply inte
rested iu its continuance in order that they, and
thoir children aftor thoin, may enjoy the advantage
of living in the midst of a well informed popula
tion, trained in habits of method, industry and
self-rclianco. Apart from appeals to motives of
duty and philanthropy, even as a mntter of mere
rclflsh calculation, it must bo evident that the
money thus cxpciucd is more than repaid by tho
absence of thuso instances uf waste, disorder und
crime -whaih generally ayminuiy ignoracc.
i'o 4well long on such views would bo superflu
ous in a ccuntry like America, so distinguished by
the liberality of its provisions for securing, even
in the wildest districts, a good education to the
poorest white inhabitants. Alas! that there should
be such ft restriction!
But in addition to tho general benefit which all
derive from such a school as yours, the jmrtnti of
children havo a mure peculiar and direct interest
in its continuance and prosicrity.
1 have too hitoly como to this country, and I am
as yet too imperfectly acquainted with its laws
and customs, to know how far my views aro in
accordance or opposition with them, but it appears
to me that, in order to secure to any school not
only a paramount existence, hut the means of
adapting itself to tho increasing wants and expand
ing views of thu community, it should be, in a
grout measure., Solf-Supporting.
My experience iu Kngland (und human nature
is much tho same everywhere,) has also taught
me that what scoins to be got for nothing, is seldom
properly valued, aud that uoithur parents nor chil
dren will ever feul the same interest in a school
which is open Ui them as matter of course, as
if they had directly purchased the right of at
tendance. I would therefore suggest that the general school
tax be lowered so as to silence the com pi

ffnlrm, Ohio, IHnrrh 11, 18.14.
Our papor for several weeks past has been occu
pied with tho Nebraska nuostion, to the exclusion
of much else that Is of the first importance. The
proceedings of tlie Massachusetts Anti-Slavery
Society, wo passed almost unnoticed. Many valu
able and radical speeches too, have been neglected,
especially one by Mr. Garrison, delivered in New
York, which by the way, has been yery neatly
printed In small pamphlet form.
Mr. Sumner's spcoch, which will be found in the
paper to-day, is capital. Its history of the aggres
sions of slavery is most graphic Its argument
unanswerable, and nobody of course, in the Senate
or out of it will attempt an answer and its classic
eloquence has not been too highly extolled. There
is, howcrcr about portion of it, sort of Irg-
ijour-jtardim air, which we do not like. Mr. Sum
ner "speaks not as ono having authority." A
bolder look and more defiant tone, would better
suit our tlcw of tho proprieties of tho occasion
and the place. But every man in his lot. Mr.
Sumner' manner will commend his cause
many among the people who would not bo reached
by other means. And the people, are thoso wo
would gain. As for the unprincipled compromis
ers and compromise breakers who compose the
majority of tho American Congross, there ia no
hope of them. They truly estimate themselves.
when for office they sell themselves as the tools
the most debasing wickedness for kidnappers and
seryile lackeys to slavoholding despots. The win
ning gentleness of the beloved disciple, and the
'anathema-maranatha " of the son of thunder,
would be alike unappreciated and ineffectual npon
them. Tho motives that moved Benedict Arnold
and Judas Iscariot, aro tho only ones effectual with
them. And such motivos will probably carry the
Nebraska bill through the House, as it has through
Tue Warren Chronicle a.so Transcru t, Free
Soil and Whig, have been united. Tho new paper
is large and well printed, and will be every way ono
of the first of inland papers.
The editors in their salutatory, speak hopefully,
and say that tho union nicots hearty response
from tho progressives, and from anti-slavery men
generally in the county much more so than was
. i ins union is an indication of the tendency
the publio desire for union and co-operation, and
will doubtless tend towards such ft result. The
whigs arc ready for it. Thoir party is gono. The
southern whigs going for the Nebraska fraud.
seems quite liko finishing it its restraints are
such of its mcmliers us have any anti
slavery, can breathe it forth without fear. The
Whigs, at least those in Northern Ohio, ro mak
ing s real progress. Thoy are taking an advanced
position, so far as the denunciation of slavery, and
the slave power are concerned. And so far as
can see, the free soilcrs, who limit their anti-slavery
by the anti-slavory of thoir party, have no prin
ciples which are conceded or compromised by
union. Tho whig in his progress has no change
to make in his constitutional opinions, in ordor
get up to tho free soil level. The union that
sought is therefore perhaps well enough, and is
real advancement on the part of the whigs. And
ir the combination will ior on, all ia well, and
will eventuate in a real progress to all, and in val
uable results to freedom. But our hope is not
very great. Past experience loads its to fear
retrograde, rather than an advance. Nevertheless
we will wait, and heartily rejoice if the result
The Democrats being now in power, are desirous
of maintaining thoir identity. They aro therefore
bauds off, from any such union as the whigs arc
ready to muko. This is most manifest in regard
to somo of the movements we see made in opposi
tion to the Nebraska plot. As a general thing,
the opposition of the whigs seems more anti-slavery
than that of the democrats ; it is apparently
moro comprehensive in its character (to this there
are exceptions) as well as numbers. Some demo
crats are as outspoken as anybody. iisuniouists
and conicoutcrs aro indeed porfoctly tame in their
presence, and thoir fanatical declarations are but
milk and water compared with tho denunciations
of these new born railers against slavery cxtonsion.
Of such we expect little but present denunciation.
They start with such speed that their wind will
fail in the race, and they will soon collapse Into
the passive servility of the old lino democracy.
Ia sovoral places tho Democrats have called
meetings against the Nebraska bill on their own
hook. In Xcw Lisbon, for instance, we observe,
one was called fur the citisens generally, aud an
other subsequently fur Democrats. This may
well. It is porhaps policy to iufluenco thus
they con, tho dominant power at Washington.
But wherever politics are concorncd, our suspic
ions are always instinctively excited. They are
this case. It is oaly in anti-elavcry communities
that the Democrats thus move. And we have
doubt they will quote thoir anti-Xebraska action
at tho next election, as the best of evidence that
the Democratic party is antilatery enouuh. and
thus cheat unsuspecting anti-slavery democrat
to support or party democracy, how servilely pro
slavery soever it may be. We confess we much
prefer to see the people come togothor a one, with
union and hoartiuoss, rather than to witnoss this
separnte action, whatover may be its motive But
perhaps we ought not to complain if Democratic
sub-leaders will seem to do aiijthing in opposition
to slave extension, when the wholo controlling
power and leadership of the party is prostituted
to that work. And so, on the score of gratitudo
for very small favors, we will drop the subject,
hopiug tlmt all will ere long be eompelled to
against slavery, either party wise, or otherwise,
they can. The people would unite, uninfluenced
by party tactics aud prejudices.

NOTICES OF THE PRESS.
Tn froriVe Joirjai. for March, contains
sixty-one engravings. This is ono of tho cheapest
and most valuable publications we receive. It
communicates an immense amount of knowledge
of things, curious, Useful, common and uncommon.
Three volumes are published in one year, at M
eenta per volume. Alfred E. Beach, publisher, Ht

Household Words. The last Quarterly Xo. is
full of spirit. Doomed to reading as an editor Is,
till reading is a drug a bore we confess to ft do-
sire to read this number right along, without
sketching or skipping. We give our readers a
specimen of Its quality in "A Defence of Fleas,"
on our last page.
Graham's Maoaxi.ne has swelled Into a book
and one valuahlo as well as interesting. The March
number Is excellent, and brilliantly illustrated.
Gxxiis or the West for March appears with
an improved appearance. It is quite up to the
Koatorn Dollar Monthlies, and the publisher says
his list is growing.
Moore's Western Lauv'e Book Is a new Mnza-

an interesting and valuahlo number. It should
have a wide circulation among the friends of edu

by the State Woman's Rights Convention, held at
Albany, February, 18A4. Prepared by F.lizabktii

spirited document, for which the author will'please
accept our thanks.
Rhode Island Frekvan. Some sectarian Free
Soilcrs of Rhode Island, who could not endure frco
speech, attempted to "crush out" the spirited organ
of the party in Rhode Island. They have failed,
and the Freeman has now an insurance of lifo for
twelve months to come, during which it will do
much good service.

Tho Colonisation Society, two or three years ago
made tho most vigorous efforts to secure an appro
priation by congress for tho establishment of a line
of steamers, to run between this country and Lilio-
ria. Its especial object was to carry missionaries
for tho conversion of Africa. For some cause or
other this Missionary enterprise failed of success,
and the line of Ebony Steamers tins not been cstnl
lishcd. And tho cargoes of Missionaries annunlly
shipped, are compelled to trust to wind and tido
alone, for their progress during their voyage. But
this slow process does not answer in this fast age,
and tired of waiting upon Congress, Sir. Ralph
Randolph Gurley, advertises for donations or loans,
to build a steam ship for this purpose As an in

END IN THE SENATE.
Tho bill extendins slavery ovor Kausaa and Ne
braska, has passed the Senate. Thirteen oy to
vote against it. The Congressional report says
fourtoon. Mr. Boil sinike ngninst it. bnt did not
vote. The little handful of opponents have contest
ed the point stoutly to the last. The cause of free
dom owes them as hearty thanks as though they
had been successful. Tho bullying southerners
and thoir ruffian overseers from tho nortli did their
worst. But these truo friends of freedom boro a
defiant front throughout.
If tho north would arouse in accordance with the
emergency, It would yet be defeated in the House.
out t.io cnorts will be desperate to carry it through.
Party cords w ill be tightened to the utmost. Trai-
tor will bo branded upon the forehead of the Dem
ocrat who dnies resist. The timid will surrendor.
And Presidential patronngo will buy up the mer
cenary. Thus it is proposed to consumate the deed.
Let the men of the north back tho little handful nr
heroes in the House, on whom the fierceness of the
fight will como. w e believe they ore equal to the
emergency. But their constituents At home mus
sustain them. Dou't cense to remonstrate. Make
yourselves heard. Carry the war into Africa. Instruct
your Representatives to come home if the
bill passes. Resolve to have no furthor govern
mental union with slavoholding compromisers nd
slavoholding compromise breakers. They have no
claim upon your confidence. Their purpose is
execrable, as are also their measures.

Remonstrances. Mr. Postmaster Wilson of this
place, forwarded a fow days since, to our Repre

remonstrants against the Douglas villainy. Mr.
Wilson accompanied the Remonstrances with the
assurance to Mr. Stewart that he would do tho
will of his Democratic constituents in Columbiana
only by the most vigorous opposition to this con
teniplated fraud and perfidy.
We hear that Mr. Stewart has been writing to

THE SUBSTANCE OF IT.
The correspondent of tho Xow York Tribune
gives tho following ns the "substance" of the speech
of Stephens, of Georgia, on the Xcbraska bill. H
is tho "substance" of the thought, and tho ground
of hope of the whole batch ofsouthern overseersand
northern slaves who go for this infernal iiicas'tire.
And they are probably not mistaken. The Tribano
"Well, gentlemen, yon make ft good deal of
clamor over this Nebraska measure, but it don't
alarm us at all. We have got used to tlmt kind of
talk. You havo threatened before, hut you never
pcforrmcd. You always caved in and vou will
again. You are a mouthing, white-livorcil.set. Of
course you will oppose tho measure: wo expect
thnt but we don't care for your opposition. Vim
will rail, but we are used to your railing. Yotl will
hiss, but so do adders. We expect it of adders',
and wo expect it of you. You are like the devils
that were pitched over tho battlements of heaven
into hell. They set up a howl at their discomfiture
and so will you. But their fate was sealed, and so
is yours. Yon must submit to the yoko, so don't
chafe. Gentlemen, we hnio got you in our powert
You tried to drive us to the wall in 1M0, but things
are changed. Then and before you were imperious
and grasping and would not njnee to run the line
of SV 30' to tho Pacific and take all the tho terri
tory to tho north of that line, lou were grerdy
and wanted more. But now yon will lose the
whole. You went n-wooling and have como home
fleeced. Don't be so impudent as to complain.
You will only bo slnppcd in tho face. Don't re
sist. Y'ou will be lashed into obedience. The
legislatures of Now York, of Rhode Island, of
Massachusetts, tho Northern divines, the oppo- -nents
of Xebraska everywhere are merely adder
whose vocation it is to hiss they are simply howl
ing devils who shall all bo sent to hell."
Aftor this sort the Honorable Stebhens ran on.
It was very much liko a lecture Mr. legree might
go out and doliver to ft plantation of his slaves:
i inicnu io give you more ot it. llon't matter
about revenge. I havo heard nil that beforo. I
am your master, and you hnvo pot lo submit."
We trust tho pooplo of tho North will exhibit a
proper degree of humility nnd manifest an nl.!!.
ent temper toward their new rulors. Let them be
prepared to submit with good grace to the dom
ination, utter and complete, oi the slave niirr. nr
else let them riso in their might and grind every
.oriucrn tioiiguiace and trn.tor into powder.
