THK AOttItiVI.TWRAI. WHABO—I
Tlio donation of lam! scrip by Con
gmi to tlio States for Agricultural and
Mechanical OoUegtt, >>«« everywhere pro
voked a contest between the various edu
cational institutions for its control.
Everywhere the widest difference of opin
ion seems to exist as to the precise mode
of organizing such a school as is con
templated by the terms of the grant:
somo claiming that a simple polytechnic
school will meet the case ; others that a
model farm is needed.
Without, discussing details, wo are pre
pared emphatic-lily to state our conviction
that this fund should not be placed under
the control of any one of tho existing in
stitutions of learning. As a rule, then is
among theso institutions no clear percep
tion of the special work that needs to be
done, in the educational field, to fit men for
the business of farming. It has been gen
erally assumed that anybody would do for
a farmer. Farming, as an art, gleaning
tbe whole field of physical science for its
knowledge, has no general recognition.
So with mechanical industry. The trade 3
doomed to empiricism. Tho pro
fessors have kidnapped the sciences from
the mass of mankind by their exolusive
ness and technicalities. Labor grim, and
sooty, like Tubal Cain at his forgo, feels
tho wrong, and gropes like a blind giant
for relief. Sturdily, with rude words it
may lie, yet with an emphasis that will
make itself heard, it demands a share in
tbe common heritage of knowledge.
This great interest of Agriculture, which
gives so much and receives so little, which
has been put out of the pale of gentility
and turned over to mediocrity ; whoso
serene face has been cuffed for centuries
by professional conceit; this primitive
child of labor, whoso brawny shoulders
bear up the burden of civilization ; this,
too, is calling for its share in the world's
We assort that its claim is just. That
evou farmers havo rights which the pro
fessors aro bound to respect, and we say
to them when they roach out to seiz) this
fund, "Hands off!"
Let us suppose a grant mado to establish
schools where doctors, lawyers, and divines
wore to be trained for their professions.
Suppose, farther, tbat the farmers and
mechanics of Virginia had established nu
merous schools of special discipline for
themselves. What would bo thought of a
proposition to tack a theological seminary
upon a model farm, or a law and medical
school upon a Mechanics' Instituto ? We
cannot deny that such an arrangement
would greatly improve the professions in
mental and physical vigor; but how would
this incongruous arrangement strike the
professions and the general public 7
Just imagine tho whole body of tho far
mers and mechanics, already in possession
of the best schools, rushing to seize and
divido between them the work of training
lawyers, doctors and clergymen !We
think there would be a discharge of pills
equal to Captain Bra'gg's grape, and a
cannonade of Biblical exegesis, Latin,
Greek and Hebrew, mingled with es
says on constitutional rights that would
drive hack the intruders to their farms, and
work shops discomfited, and lead them
precipitately to resign the education of
their voluble and unpromising pupils.
If it be claimed that there is in all edu
cation a common preliminary discipline,
we grant it. And for this, there are schools
established all over the land already, not
as numerous as they should be, to be sure,
but still so that any vigorous, aspiring
youth can get an education if he will
But the scope of this grant is clearly lim
ited to specialities of training. Whatever
of science relates to mechanical industry or
farming should be so taught that its appli
cations to the daily occupations of men,
shall be made clear. Those of us familiar
with the curriculum of studies in the
schools of Virginia, or even in the ordinary
colleges of the North, know how superficial
and general is the instruction thero given
in applied science ; aud this, not because
the professors are incompetent or unfaith
ful, but because they do not undertake to
teach specialities of science or art.
Now, what we want of this fund is to
found a school where tho object shall be,
not general discipline of mind, but thor
ough training for special pursuits. This
is our mite of the vast provision for edu
Justice and common sense alike suggest
that the farmers and mechanics should be
consulted upon this matter. Let a com
mission of this class be appointed, with
ample time to mature a plan, and either
put it in operation at once, or submit it to
the Legislature at a subsequent meeting,

TESTIMONY OF FRANKLTN STEARNS.
The testimony of Mr. Steams be'ore tho
Houso committee of investigation, yester
day, states clearly tho motive which has
influenced himself and the gentlemen as
sociated in their liberal offer to the Legis
lature. The character of these gentlemen
aud their large interest in the prosperity
of Richmond and tho whole State, fur
nishes an unimpreachable guarantee for the
proper uso of any control which they seek
to obtain over the stock of tho Richmond
and Petersburg railroad.
TESTIMONY OF MB. FItANIU.IN STEARNS.
Franklin Steams sworn:
By Mr. Hill:
Q. —Did you hear the evidence of Mr. Elly
A.—Only a portion of It.
Q. —Are yuu cognizant 0 f anything about
the arrangement in question here; do you
know anything not stated by Ellyson? '
A.—A party of gentlemen, tearing that the J
interest of Kichmond was to be greatly dam- |
aged in case the Uichuiond and Petersburg ,
railroad was placed in tbe bands or under tbe
control of the Southed, consoUlation, we
agreed that we would buy thii stock if it conld
he fold and hoid it in trust for the people of
Kichmond, without, Bonptfttatloß Of profit to
Q. —During the discussion of the amendment
in tho House of Delegates, known as the Wood
amendment, were you at any time in conversa
tion with Mr. John Lyon or Mr. Hridgers?
A.—Yes, sir, with Mr. Lyon. I never saw
Mr. lirldgers till just this minute.
Q.—Were you aiding Mr. Lyon in securing
the defeat of tho amendment known as the
A,—l wasn't able to give Lim much ; I did
what I could. I spoke to some friends in tbo
Legislature, and urged them to vote against it.
That was about all.
WHAT MR. STKARNS THINKS 01 IT.
By Mr. Graham:
Q,—Mr. Steams, don't you think it would
be a serious injury to this city for this road to
fall into the hands of the Atlantic, Mississippi
and Ohio railroad?
By Mr. Budd :
Q. —Ho you think it would be a strious in
jary for the road to fall into the hands of the
Wilmington and Woldon road ?
A.—l do not think that will bappon. There
would be no through connection, and we hoped
to control the roaa.
Q.~Did you think of making any combina
tion to purchase the State's interest in the
Kichmond and Petersburg railroad until after
the passage of Wood's amendment?
A.—l did not, for the reason that I did not
think the amendment would pass.
By Mr. Hill:
Q._As one of the parties offering to purchase
this interest of the State, is it not your under
standing that if the purchase is made upon the
part of yourself and associates, that it is really
in the interest of Wm. T. Walters ?
A.—No, sir, Ido not, I have not seen Wm.
T. Walters for several years.

Females, owing to the peculiar aud Important re
lations which they sustain, their peculiar organf/b
--tion, and tho offices thoy perform, are subject to
many sufferings. Freedom from these contribute in no
small degree to their happiness and welfare, for roue
can be happy who are ill. Not only so, but no one
theso various female complaints can long be suAVr-J
to run on without Involving the general health oi
the individual, aan ere long producing permanent
sicknoss and premature decline. Nor is It pleasant
to consult a physician for the relief of these varion*
delicato affections, and only upon the most urgent
necessity will a true woman so far sacrifice her great
est charms to do this. Tho sex will thon thank us
for placing fn their hands simple specifics which will
be found efficacious in relieving and curing almost
every one of those troublesome complaints peculia
to the se
HELMBOLD'S EXTRACT OF BUCHU—Hundreds
suffer on in silence, and hundreds of others apply
vainly to druggists and doctors, who either merely
tantalizo them with the hopo of a cure or appiv
remedies which make them worse. I would not wish
to assert anything that would do Injustice to the
affllctod, but lam obliged to say that although il
may be produced from oxcessive exhaustion of the
powers of lifo, by laborious employment, unwhole
some air and food, profuse raoustruation, tho use ot
tea and coffee, and frequent childbirth, it is far of
tener cauaod by direct irritation, applied to the mu
cuo membrane of tho vagina itself.
When reviewing tho causes of these distressing
complaints, it is most painful to contemplate the at
tendant evils consequent upon them. It is bnt sim
ple justice to the subject to enumerate a few of
many additional caußcs which so largely affect tbe
life, health, and happiness of woman in all classes oi
society, and which, consequently, affect moro or toss
directly, the welfare ef tho entire human family.--
The mania that exists for precocious education ond
marriago, causes tho years that nature designed for
corporeal devolopement to bo wasted and perverted
in the restraints of dress, the early confinement ol
school, and especially in the unhealthy excitement of
he ball-room. Thus, with the body half-clothed,
and the mind unduly excited by" pleasure, pervert'
Ing iv midnight revel tho hours designed by nature
for sleep and rest, tho work of destruction is halt
In consequence of this early strain upon her sys
tem, unnecessary effort is required by the delicate
votary to retain her situation in school to a later
day, thus aggravating the evil. When one excite
ment Is over, another in prospective keeps the mind
morbidly sensitive to impression, while the now con<
slant restraint of fashionable dress, absolutely for
bidding tho exercise indispensable to the attainment
and retention of organic health and strength ; the
eXposure to night air; the sudden change of tempe
rature, the complete prostration produced by exceri
sive dancing, must, of necessity, produce their loglti
mato effect. At last, an early marriage caps the cli
max of misory, and the unfortunate one, hitherto
so utterly regardloss of the plain dictates and remon
strances of hor delicate nature, becomes an unwill
ing subject of medical treatment. This Is but t»
truthful picture of the experience of thousand** o
our young women.
Long before the ability to exercise the functions of
the generative organs, they requiro an education of
their peculiar nervous system, composed of what is
called the tissue, which is, i common with the fe
male breast and lips, evidently under the control of
mental emotions and associations at an early ported
c_ life ; and, as we shall subsequently see, these emo
tions, when excessive, lead, long before puberity, to
habits which sap tho very lifo of their victims ere
nature has self-completed their development.
