S UBOENT FOB THE PASSAGE
OF THE BLUR BILL,

the
Spread of Intelligence.
Te eh iitri ef tbe Appeal :
Theapeecti ol Seratir Jackson, de
livered a few months ago nlire the
Tanneeeee 8 a'e Association ol Teach
ers in Uvor of national aid tor educa
tion, stamps bim as a man of geoeroui
and etalMnjHnlike views, and one of
whom Americans may Justly feel
proud. W confpi" our snrprite at the
lHd position (aken by this Henry
CUy ol our lime. So frank and un
answerable are the arfruuieLti of the
8entor, eo lar-'eaching and patriotic
bis doctrine, Ut no fair-minded
iran can uccestful'y rtlute them.
If that h U becomes a law it will elim
inate the evils incident to the present
condition ( f the country. If defeated,
the inexorable necessities of the peo
ple will itil deiriiad a enbetitnte by
which they snail rescue themselves
from the bond(e of illiteracy and iti
immeiiWte influence. No man is so
Hind as not tokrow that the motive,
reason and end in view t f the bill is
in the interest cf pood government
and posterity. In this respect that
bill concerns the learned as well as
the unlearned, the rich as well m the
poor. It concerns all who fe la com
mon interest in the nation's welfare;
but it concerns also the benighted
and degraded wboie condition to-day
pleads for relief and amelioration.
While this is true, there are those who
grant the capability ef a certafil class
to acquire intellectual knowledge, but
Cfcestion the possibility of their high
moral development, and upon this
theory bise their objections asrainst
the education tf Ihe uismes. Hut to
concede to any man, all things being
equal, the ability to kP ll V"
lectual truth is a virtual acknowledg
ment of hi tnpacity to embrace and
practice all the virtues found in the
catalogue I human excellence, and
hence the development t f the moral
faculties. Kudowed with a moral nat
ure, man is eminently fitted to
discriminate between right and
wron, and I) ignore the capa
bility of any .taoe or people
to develop their moral powers, ren
ders them n. once irresponsible of
crime. But the law makes no such
exemption, and it mattersnt t in wi at
rondit a man may exist, there is no
human agency, do argument however
ingenious, t' at can alienate him from
the attribuies of a common humanity.
There is no power that can diepo-eeps
him of tliof e su linie instincte which
character m man and ally him to an
overruling divinity. We therefore
must iu reason acknowledge his right
to exercise and improve every grace
with which heaven has endowed Mm.
We concede that some men are more
susceptible of mind-culture than
others, but the inteivening ol tempo
ral canses too often serve as
a more ceitain barrier against
the mental growth of a people.
Only a lew yearn ago neither intellect
ual nor moral ( uliure win required of
the colored tnau in substantiation of
mental-lit a'muenls, but now be pre
sents himself u living example of un
compromising integrity and. merited
worth, lie is an American c.ltiien.
tie embodies the fxeliDgs and prac
tices ol American life, and all that he
is or shall be is wrapped up in the
destiny ol enr grf at and growing re
public. The presumption that he
ia either u Kol or a knave
doea not always make bim
, one or the other. Like In oft
men, lie is the creature of circum
stances, looking to bis government, in
common with the people, for relief
from the cond t oo of illiteracy in
which he finds himself at present.
Of the f lL'U.OOO.OCO propo ed to be ap
propriated for cemmoa school educa
tion. tJ be expended annually among
the Btates and Territories, according
to the number ol persons over the age
of ten years who cannot read and
write, let it be remembered that this
sum is to be applied indiscriminately
for the benefit of the people's chil
dren, and ni t alono for the colored
people. Under any circumstances,
popular edutstion is a mutter of abso
lute necersity t i a republiiau govern
ment. Withhold it from the miissef,
and the ftameao k may become
so remodeled as to ma'erially affoct
he fabric from We to apex. It la
with the Ihw-il uklng powers to adjust
Intel lor fortes, that they tend with
UDdeViating gravity toward the cen
tral idea on which the government
wai founded. If that idta ia made
commensurate with the demacds of
the ra'ion, every citizen and coining
generations ahull know the intrinsic
worth of our institutions, love nnd
revere them more deatly, and count
it naught to die for one's country'.
For if education means nay thing,
it means the development of
every iicnlty of the human
mind, eo that in its constituent pails
it is hardly piasible to cultivate one
wltboat impressing upon the cthera
come letsnn of moiul duty. But,
granting tt at a nrua may acquire in
tellectual knowledge lo the neglect of
the moral powers, we are, neverthe
less, compelled to admit that the
truths ol intellectual science are re
formative in them8ulves, hence help
ful in restoring man to a more ele
vated condition among intelligent be
luga. Though predisposed to error,
the human iiiind is not rendered more
vicious for wtnt it learns in the arcana
of najture. W littler that knowledge
be properly applied or not, the liult ol
evil doing rests rot with intuitive
truths in learned, but with an inborn
propensity t wander Irom tboie re
straints which aie imposed by the
teachings of intellectual science. A
devil from the beginning, though
guided by sn inward conncience, man
yields to t tie impulse ol pasmon and
becomes a very slave ta a thounnnd
vices. Had he no reftrainirg influ
ences, quickei.ed by the lifiht of edu
cation and gorerning his nature, he
might then be shunned as a dangerous
enemy to civilised society. Hut onr
present sjit'ua of education tsnds in
every respect to humanize and dignify
nian. It is ceitainly, then, tot fair to
conclude that intellectual educution is
detrimental to a people because of any
seeming deficiency in moiuU. With
out eduia'.ion and its progressive
tendencies to enlighten and qualify
the mind fir its eternal mission,
the grand work t f man and deity
would be forentalled. But educate
man. tra'n him in the school cf mor
als, instill iuti bis mind principles ( f
rectitude, imbue his soul with the
ennobling qualities of true manhood,
give him a living exemplification of
the golden rule a" he fhould practice
it, let the holier influences (I a pure
and honored life be irg'iifted in his
heart, and we have at once, re jardlets

only this should be the aim of
the true teacher. Intellectual and
moral education, then, is the need of
the masses, and upon this hangs the
safety cf our government.
There are those azain, who In defer
ence to the claims of justice, are will
ing to a-jknowledge the righteousness
of the bill, but argue that it would be
unconstitutional to make it law.
To dispute the right does not make
it unlawful. Let the right be disput
ed, let it be denied that Congress faai
power to make the appropriation, that
the application of the funds of the
nation involves the right of control,
the assertion cf Mvereignty ; that i ight
has already been recognized and con
firmed. For, save the great Henttir:
'In the early history of the Republic,
when an undivided public opinion
demanded aid, it came in the light of
a national necess.ty and was ratified
by a uniform practico of conceding to
the government its implied wants."
That tbe necessity for such a? appro
priation does exist at the prexeut
time, ciiutiOt be denied, llegardle.es
of any necessity for the sppiopriation
on account of one race or aco'.lier, the
greatest duty is tint which the rju'.ion
owes to itself and the world. itard
leEH of any desire on the part if any
particular race, it is the right of
this government to look first
after whatever concerns its beet
welfare, it beet existence. Net
that tbe nation mu4 perish
through a preponderance of illiteracy,
but that there is dinger in this super
abundance, which necessitates a fore
arming against the evils incident to its
x it fence. The States find it impossi
ble to correct these evils. Where shall
they seek relief except from the general
government? We all feel that this
government is a necessity to ourselves.
The desire to support and protect tbe
commonwealth is original in every
breast. To make that support efficient
for fcojd, a man must know how to be
governed, and they who govern must
know how to govern, that the princi
ple of intelligence shall reatth the
masses. For, mysthe gifted Moctss
quieu,"It is in republican governments
that the whole power of education
is required." It serves as a counter
balance against popular ignorance and
its concomitants; it gives capacity to
the people to assert their rightful sov
ereignty, while the tendency of illit
eiucy is to invite antagonisms and fos
ter the moat inveteiate animosities be
tween the representatives cf authority
and the non-governing element. Did
the fathers speak idly when they de
clared that in this republic their pur
pose was to insure tranquillity, provide
for the common defense and the
geneial welfare? Verily they meant
every sylablo of that declaration.
They felt, in their wisdom a strong
necessity to stay tbe outcroppings of
Intebtine strife, and they knew that
where intelligence and reason held
sway the demon cf treachery would
vent its spleen in vain. In the dis
cussions of the press and in the con
flict of parties it is only by correct
knowledge and comprehensive intel
ligence that we gather data and un
derstand and administer wisely the
operations of government. General
knowledge of the principles ol na
tional organization are as necessary to
national life as the structure of the
body. An intelligent administration
of the civil laws -is essential to the
dignity and high standing f our gov
ernment, and the youth of the
land ned it be fitted to as
sume the rigid responsibilities of
this more exacting citizenship. A
well-ordered admlnittrttion depends
chiefly upon the conduct of the peo
ple. All grants of power come from
the people. They determine what
functions are to be pen wined, what
duties are required, and what penal
ties are proviued in order to maintiin
a just and wholesome government In
all the eventful cinngos of thecountry
there is ua unceaiing demand upon
the people f jr wise decision. As tbe
circumstances and wants of the peo
ple change, special laws are required'
to meet the conditions. The gen
eral law guarantees to the State
tbe right to meet all educational de
mands within its own jurisdiction.
Can the general Government grant
powers tj others not exercised by it
self? Hai not the general government
power to make appropriations in the
same way to relieve itself as to grant
power to others to reliove themselves?
Can the State exercise authority
which the general government cannot
enjoy? What an anomaly indeed.
And how inconsistent with the com
mon sense of things! The cause of
this Republic is the cause of the
States, and In proportion as a single
Stale 1b ben 'fltetl bo ie the pnfoa ex
alted. But what makes a nation great?
What gives one country superiority
over another? Not the display of
mngniticant armies and navies,
nor the grandeur ol extended
territory. To inraphrase the lan-
guige of Sir William Jones, we AsV
agAln, What constitutes a $tto ? Not
low-raised imbeciles, doomed to illite
racy and bribes: not magistrates ruling
and courts deciding where ignorance ia
bliss and toiling millions f tel little care;
not idle-minded people, hard strug
gling rnediocres not these shall guild
a nation's natue.but men, high-minded,
educated men, who their duties know,
and knowing, dare maintain in the in
terest of humanity and the world.
When the despotism of the CVaars
as founded on the ruins of the Roman
republic it wit done through the
barbarism of an imbecile race.
It was done by those who had become
the willing tools of tyrants, showing
most conclusively that liberty a in
separable from well-directed knowl
edge, and that illiteracy is Us own de
stroyer. Khali the nation's Congress
throw away the opportunity to rescue
thiB central sun of civilization, the
home of Washington and Grant, from
the clutches of impending illiteracy ?
Rich in the resources of ua'ure, yield
ing whatever adds to our physical en
joyment or national contemplation,
our country is destined to be popu
lous. Onward, still seeking the purer
liuht. lit it not languish now. It will
redouble itself from period to period.
Like the shores which lookout upon
the waters of the Thames,
the Rhine and the Rhone, our
rivera shall vet be crowded with
mass of moving beings. We live pre
paratory to the enjoyment of ancther
cominu period from which shall be
raised a moral temple for the habita
tioo of a more hopeful posterity. Sac
riflcng every selfish desire and every
endearing sentiment to the caused
that Doateritv. it would seem a matter
of sublime wisdom that this govern
ment should exeit every effort to pre
serve unimpaired the blessings cf its
founders. Let, then, the bill be made
a law. Let us call in science and
knowledge to unlock the dcors
rf nature's storehouse that each
c.t'zm shall become the patron of
learning, paying homage to the benefi
rer.t author ol all wisdom. As an ad
vosate of that implied construction of
the constitution bestowing benefit
coicmensurate with the wantB of our
onvernmnnt. Mr. Jackson has ettab-
huhed. bevond all reasonable coatia
diction, the right of Congress to pass
the bill. Already ills nameiaaeo u.
with the grent rames 01 me couiiirj,
I and to this Illustrious son of Teune
see) owe give nnmeainred thanks for
loftv and patriotic endeavor. He has
spoken for the nation's future, for tbe
weal of the rising republic whose des
tiny is vet to be very miracle in his
tory. He has spoken for the civiliza
tion and the Cbrutianization of tbe
world's humanity. Tbe duty is sim-
file. Let the cation educate; let tbe
igbt of tbe more hopeful era break
forth on mountain and hil'top, whence
it rays shall penetrate the valleys
and illumine the path of the climber
rather then deal out stinted candles
whose feeble light may decoy ns into
uncertain fields. Let the broader
light of national education be
fait in everv Leme. that
the family and the nation
may become one grand mutuality
of intellectual and raoial design.
Bound by a pledge of sacred duty to
maintain couetttutional government,
let the people be educated to the idea
of the fathers, build upon the basis of
enduring wisdom and standing in the
g are ol our onward course, ccming
generations shall boaet the worth of a
pi iceles heritage, preserved to a grate
f il, intelligent and well-ordered peo

Another Fire an Ihe Kylaw Farm
Pirfiruot the Town.
lootanroxDiiics orrsi ArriAL.I
Wcoijvillk, TNt., February 13.
A fire broke out in Mr. Thomas Hays's
l ouse, at the Kylaw farm, owned by
Mr. J. T. Fargaaon of Memphis, last
Wednesday, and burned up one bed
and some of the furniture in tbe
rooms. This crakes the second fire oo
the farm this year. The above resi
dent seems to be very much troubled
with the sportsmen of the country, he
being an Eastern man who believes in
the rigid enforcement of the law in
every sense, and if not observed the
ones who violate it should be pun
ished to the full extent. With
this idea in view he Is about to
make it lively for the toys who have
been trespassing' upon his grounds.
The people of tbisiountry think that
such Is one cf the monopolies tf this
country, and should be legislated
ajainet, as the farm has a vast lot of
timbered land tl at serves as a retreat
for many destructive animals which
will at night prey on their stack and
poultry, and return to their dens in
the above wilderness.
Tbe lilt'e town of WcoJvIlle is mak
ing rapid strides; it now has tele
phone connection with nearly all the
residences in the place.
Tbe millpond cf W.J. Wilson broke
over the dam Thursday, and several
German carp-fish were caught meas
uring from twelve to eighteen inchoa.
They were put in the pond eighteen
months airo very small, and they are
certainly of a very prolific growth. All
who are prepared for raising them
should try them.
Mi si Dollin B 11 ford of Oxford, Miss.,
is very low with consumption At her
brotber-in-'awV, W. J. Wilson, and is
not expected to live long. Her mother
and brother are now with her. With
this one exception health is generally
good.
. Mr. Bf W. Fleming, who has been
in this place for two years, left for
Fulton, Ky., Thursday. The boys of
this town gave him a salute while
passing through by liring three shots
with anvils. c. n. j.

H. i. A. Library,
To th Editor! of the Appeal :
Being a constant reader cf your pa
per, and having noticed and admired
tbe featleesnesa with which you ex
poea hypocrisy a well as fraud, I take
the liberty of uading your attention to
a simple fact which should be of pub
lic interest. I have been a resident of
this city since last October and have
had occasion to employ several labor
ing men. Among others I have em
ployed two young men who have
proved themselves honest, diligent
and capable, and ready, willing and
anxious to work. As I could not give
them steady employment, they were
frequently very "hard up. They are
both temperate men and conse quently
had no desire to loaf around saloons,
so they used often to come to my room
to read such papers and books as tbey
might find. Cue aftornoon they went
into the free reading-room of the Y.
M. C. A. and spent the time in read
ing. Judge e f their astonishment
when, upon rising to leave the rooms
of this moBt Christian association, the
librarian informed them tbatthey had
better not come any more ai they
were not dressed well enough, at the
tame time telling tlum that it wasn't
his fault, as such were his orders from
the directors. Comment iti unneces
sary. I merely suggest that Moody
aid turnkey be recalled, ana mat tney
issue special ticketn to tne memDersoi
tais Young Men's Very Christian As
sociation, with reserved seats in the
front row for the presumably wen
dressed directors. I had always sup
posed that a free reading-room was
tor the benehtoi those wno ueairea to
improve themselves intellectually, but
had not the means wharewitn to pro
vide reading matter for themselves,
but it seems I was mistaken and that
it ia onlv a loafins place for wed
dreesrd loungers, and the word "Wel
come" which stares you in the face is
meant only for them. I would be
irrateful if one of the directors would
inform me what this society is good
for anywav.

A caBe of considerable I oca. celebcuy,
in which all t ie parties involved were
Marshall county people, has recently
been decided by our Supreme Court
at Jackson. We refer to the raw of
Belle T. McWilliaras (nee Means) et al.
vs. J. P. Noilleet and others. It was
a suit on the guardian's bond of W.
A. Roberts, former guardian of Mrs.
McWilliams and her two sisters, and
involved altogether $15,000 or $20,000.
The defendants, who were sureties on
a second toad given by said guardian,
denied that they were liable for any
default cf taid guardian, and denied
the Mi'idity of the bond. The Chan
cery Couit of this county, Judge Fiy
presiding, held that the bond was
valid, but that these sureties were
not liable for tbe guardian's default.
The Supreme Court has just reversed
thifl laitsr part of the decision, ad
holds that . defendants are liable for
the lo3. The sureties are amply sol
vent, so the siitais will recover their
little patrimony. The case was very
ably contested on both sides. Com
