One of the leading Irishmen In this coun
ty said to u-, jeterday, "that in predict
ing that the Irish would vote the Demo
cratic ticket the Beacon was talking ol
soiuetiilug that it knows nothing of." He
gave it as bis opinion that a large number
otthcIiNh voters in this county would
vote for Illainc aud Logan and that Demo
cratic leaders no longer carry the Irish
vote In tbelr pockets. The Irish people
feel that their race has been mistreated
and enslaved by the government aud aris
tocracv of Knglaud, and the Democratic
party has nlvvajs been ready to join in with
them in singing their songs of freedom
about election time, but when it conies to
rendering nnv substantial aid to the cause
or the oppressed Irish people the Demo
cratic leaders have been conspicuous by
their silence. The Lthiopcau can not

everj thing mut be true to nature. It is
not the nature or the Democratic party to
favor liberty and lender assistance to
the lowly and oppressed. When the three
millions of colored slaves In this country
cried out in their agony for assistance and
sent up their prayer-, to a merciful God Tor
dcl.vcrance Irom their terrible bondage, it
was not tho Democratic party that heal d
their cries and prayer, but tho Republican
party in tho vigor of its youth reaffirmed
the doctrines or the fathers or the Republic,
"That all tnen are entitled to lire and liber
ty." The voung party pressed foivvard
with this noble principle inscribed upon its
banners, it obtained control of the gov
ernment and to-day the colored race, that
at the time or the formation of the Republi
can party, "bad no rights that a white man
was bound to respect," are to-day citizens
of the greatest Republic ou earth. In this
movement the Republican party was bit
terly opposed by the Democratic parly.
The wouder is that the brave Irish people
in this country did not long ago discover
that the Instincts of tbe Democratic party
would never lead it to favor and support
the freedom and independence of the Irish

HMory was recited very rapidly, a were
all studies, yesterday. The mbject vvas
the most important event from Andrew
Jackson's time until the present. Tbe
electoral commissions, civil ervlce reform
and omc other important points were
brought out during the i icu--ion of the
questions lu history and constitution.
It Is arauing to imtice the political Ideas
that crop out in all directions. Yesterday
there vvas one Grecnbacker and some Ite
pablican. but the Democrat were visible
to any one that cuuld understand the signs.
In Geograph Mr. Ilalleck's class finished
upAU, giving the elimate, soil, rivers,
mountain, and the products were discuss
ed and it i a larye country to trav ere in
one day as there 1 surh a variety of matter
to mvc!iateaud put together soas to give
a connected description of the country.
In Mr. Hammond's class Geography took
up the continent for the subject, naming
the largct ai d mllet, alo rivers and
mountains, and other Information of great
branch. There used to be a great amount
of time thrown away on geography, but
like every other branch, there Is a marked
improvement noticeable, I oelicvr, owing
to the institute.
Mr. Jay's class tirt discussed emphasis,
accent, and secondary accent. Pitch of
the voice was next discussed and a great
diversity of opinion vvas u.anlfested by tbe
class. That is a good sign with small boys
and girls and I believe it Is so with tbe
larger one, it shows that they have an in
terest and are getting wakened up to the
subject and wish to know more about it.
Primative and derivative words were next
taken up and definition given for suffixes
and prefixes, after which the Misses Cox,
Cummius, Hudson. Smith and Dougherty
read pprtlons ol Anthony's oration and
King Henry of Navarre.
Philosophy was nextvlsited and hydro
statics were placed on the board and solved
by Mr. Vausenden, after which the subject
of thermometers was revived and discussed
and compared. Mr. Barry and others tak
Mr. Tear explained the rainbow in a
manner that showed that he as well
as come ot the young ladies understands
the question of beauxs.
Phpsiology had tbe question of combustion
and what is meant by it. The fuel vvas de
scribed as ultrogenous food. Tbe muscular
and nervous forces and their origin was a
step beyond our comprehension; we know
some things, but the amount that we do not
know I wonderful. Wc know that a persou
moves, thinks, acts and lives, but bow we
do these things is beyond our knowledge.
Misses Hays, Dougherty, Gibson ami oth
ers gave us some Ideas that were good, but
when wc get tbe mind on reasoniug pow
ers we are lost and might as well say we
don't know anything about it. Darwinism
can be eutircly ruined by physiology if we
believe in the question of combustion as
presented, and I think all physiologists
agree on that point.
In arithmetic, partnership and corpora
tion wns explained by Misses Graham,
Hudsou and Guyer; also by Messrs. Collins
The cash book, sales book and bill books
wereexplalneJ. Posting was again brought
up as an important part to be retained. A
journal day book or explanatory Journal
was discussed to tbo satisfaction ot all.
In constitution, tbe constitution of Kan
sas vvas digested until tbe question of
the qualification of a Kansas voter came
up, there being some doubts. It goes over
foi discussion to-day.
At 11:45 the class In music had a short

grand piece called "Herein is Love," the
class sang it with good effect for the short
time they have been under bia cbarge,
showing what could be done. After chant

by request, sang "Tbe Trundle Bed" and
another song that had some terrible words
in it that I cannot call to mind now.
