The second annual report of the super- I
intendent of Public Schools for this city,
J. H. Binford, Esq , is on our table \
through the politeness of its author. The
schools are represented as being in a flour
ishing condition. Tho total number of
schools is 72, divided as follows: Prima
ry schools, 39 ; intermediate, 1" ; gram
mer, 9; advanced grammar 1. Number
of teachers 72—white teachers, CO; colored,
12. .The average sttendaneo of the white
schools is 37 to each teacher ;of the col
ored schools 43 to each teacher.
Tho total attendance is 3,400. Total
coat of schools $21,500 during four months
from October Ist, 1870, to January 31st,
1871 —showing the cost per scholar to be
only $0.32 for the half year.
Upon night schools, tho report ia not
encouraging. Four colored and two white
were opened, bnt only two aro now in
operation—ono colored, with 20 scholars,
the other white, with 9 scholars. The
report wisely concludes that tbe night
schools must bo established on the same
priuciplca as day schools. Mr. Binford
closes ns follows:
Much, very much has yot to be done before
our schools can be said to have reached the
desired efficiency. Let us not be discouraged
by seeing what is to bo done, but rather let us
feel encouraged by looking at what has been
done, and determine "to labor and to wait."
By a continuance of tho enlightened policy
which has characterized your action during
the past four months, our schools will gradu
ally become better and better, and finally reach
tbat standard of excellence wbich will be the
pride of our city and State.
Amnesty Bill.—The House of Repre
sentatives yesterday afternoon, by a
vote of 144 yeas to 47 nays, pasted a
bill removing the political disabilities from
all persons who wero engaged iv tho rebel
lion, except those who were members of
Congress, officers of tho army and navy
who left to join tho rebellion, and mem
bers of State conventions who voted for
the ordinance of secession. The bill was
supported by all tho Democrats and many
leading Republicans, among them Messrs.
Banks, Dawes, Eames, Farnsworth, Gar
field, Lynch, Hale, Scofield, Kelley, Fin
kelnburg, anl others. Three of the col
ored members, Messrs. DeLarge, Turner
ar.d Walls, voted for tho bill.
The Nokth American Life Insurance
Company.—The promptitude, energy aud
fidelity of this company to the interests of
its patrons, has become a matter of noto
riety, to which, however, it is justly enti
tled. We take pleasure iv calling atten
tion to a letter iv another column which
gives the particulars ol a praiseworthy act
deserving commendation. The officers and
agents of the company in this city are
polite, accommodating, efficient and ener
getic in the discharge of their duties', and
tho financial ability of tho compauy is
without question, as an appendix to tba
letter referred to fully shows.
Clieaapeake and Olilii Railroad — Its
Immense Mineral Ilesources.
The iron ores of Virginia and West
Virgiuia are considered among tho best in
the world, and exist in unlimited quanti
ties upon tho immediate line of tho road,
in connection with every natural facility
for their profitable working into superior
qualities of iron and steel.
Within one hundred miles of the richest
and most valuable and abundant of these
iron ores, are the celebrated coal deposits
of the Kanawha Valley, which in quan
tity, quality, and varieties exceed those of
any other portion of the United States.
These two deposits, so important aud
valuable to each other for their mutual de
velopment—hitherto isolated and unavaila
ble to each other, and shut out from the
great markets for tho consumption und
distribution of coal and the. manufacture
of iron—are brought together aud made
accessible to each other, and introduced to
the markets East and West, by the Chesa
peake and Ohio railroad.
The iron furnaces of southern Ohio,
near tho western terminus of the road, are
feeling the imperative need of an available
substitute for charcoal, for tho manufac
ture of tho best qualities of pig-iron, for
which they are celebrated.
The peculiar Splint Coal of thu Ka
nawha is a superior fuel, in its raw state,
for the manufacture of pig-iron, and
affords the only known substitute for
charcoal for this purpose.
It exists in great quantities along tho
line of the road, is so situated that it can
be easily and cheaply mined aud loaded,
14111! can bo transported over 100 miles of
the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, and de
livered at the furnaces above referred to,
at prices which will rendor it much more
economical for tho manufacture of iron,
than the charcoal, upon which thoy must
now mainly depend.
This variety of coal is found no whero
else iv the United States in quantities and
under circumstances which render it as
available for practical use as that of the
Thia region also coutaius Canuel Coal in
great abundauce and of superior quality,
Baid to b* equal to the bist Scotch aod
Welsh, of which largo quantities are now
imported into this couutry, aud of which
the consumption would be enormously in
creased at a reduced cost.
Imported canuel coal now costs to New
York from $18 to $20 per too.
Tho canuirl coal of the Kauawha re
gion can be mined in unlimited quantities
at $2 per too, can be profitably transport
ed to Richmond by tho Chesapeake and
Ohio railroad at trom 1 cent to 2 cents
per ton per mile, and laid down in New
York at a total cost of $8 to $10 per ton.
Or it can be delivered at the Ohio river at
a total cost of $3 to $4 per ton, for distri
bution by water transportation to the
markets of the West.
The Bituminous Coals of the Kanawha
ate profuse in quantity, accessible at a
low cost for mining, aud unsurpassed in
quality for fuel, steam, and manufacturing
purposes, and the introduction of the rail
road will givo them n wide and unlimited
market Eaat aud West.
The Baltimore and Ohio railroad is now
transporting, over its heavy grades, moro
than 1,300,000 tuns annually of bitumin
ous coals, from tlio Cumberland coal region
Tlio lighter grades of the Chesapeake
and Ohii) railroad will enable them to placo
the bituminous coals of the Kanawha on
board vessels in the dames river, at Rich* '
mond, at less rates than those received by
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad for tho
transportation of Cumberland coal to Bal
timore, and earn a liberal profit on tho
Large quantities of bituminous coals are
also shipped to the West and Southwest,
from tho mines of Western Pennsylvania.
Over 1,500,000 tons of bituminous coals
pass the mouth of tho Big Sandy, on the
Ohio, annually, mostly from Pittsburgh,
315 miles above the terminus of the Chesa
peake and Ohio railroad.
Tho boats conveying this coal are obliged
to traverse Ihis 315 miles each way, or an
aggregate of C3O miles of tortuous and un
certain river navigation, which can be en
tirely avoided when they can receive from
tho cars of the Chesapeake and Ohio rail
road the supotior bituminous coals ofthe
Kanawha 316 miles lowordowu tho river,
at a point from which the navigation is
easier, more reliable, and more continuous.
In consequence of the drouth in Iho
summer and ice in winter, the navigation
of the Ohio river, above Iho mouth ofthe
Big Sandy, is uncertain, tedious, and at
tended with delays, loss of time, and dan
gers which render it expensive and unreli
able ; and often, for several months In the
year, it is practically unavailable.
Por Ihi.t reason much loss and waste is
frequently experienced in tho transporta
tion of coal for tho western markets ; and
the premature closing of this uncertain
navigation has at times left this part of the
river thronged with ice-bound or stranded
coal bargis, while Western and southwest
ern markets, for which their cargoes were
destined, were left throughout the winter
to sutler from scarcity, and consequent high
From tho mouth of the B'g Sandy, the
navigation iscunstant and reliable through
out tlio greater portion of tho year, and is
attended, comparatively, with no risk of
los 3or unexpected delay.
These considerations render it apparent,
that after the completion of the western
division of tho Chesapeake and Ohio rail
road, bituminous coals for the west and
southwest can be drawn from its line with
grenter economy, certainty, aud regularity
than from any other source.

were separated, and Mr. Conuer sent to jail for
contempt of court. He was, however, shortly
afterwards released, having apologized to thu
court. I.aler in tho evening the difficulty was
renewed. I'age and Conner were on their way
to Richmond, and when near the , Danville
railroad, some words passed between them,
and considerable tongue-lashing took place.—

no farther difficulty was had.
Judge Cox's court was opened at 12 o'clock.
S. M. Page and K. M. Conner were required

wished the matter settled, ami that they be

Dr. Wm. tl. Withers, general agent North

Main slieet, Richmond, Va.:
Dear Sir—You will please accept my sincere
thanks for your prompt payment of tho policy
of insurance on the life of James J,. Bradley,
lately deceased, of Manchester, amounting to
$1,025 72, including profits for 1870. This
transaction shows the great benefits of life in
surance and the importance of every man hav
ing a life policy. In this case both father and
mother were taking away by death the sani*
week, leaving six orphan children. Tho total
cost of this policy since November, 1808, is
less than $100. The promptness of tho "Norlh
America," in paying fitro months bof'ore mala
rity, and your oourtesy and sympathy, com
mand my hearty thanks, and I feel that I can
not too highly recommend the North America
Life Insurance company, as worthy the confi
dence and patronage of our citizens general
ly. Very respectfully yours,
Jas. A. Clarkk, Administrator.

Waskinoton, D. O, April 10, 1871.
, Friends of tho Union here feel glorious
over the condition of things in the politi
cal akies, generally, throughout the coun
try. Those who were tho most sanguine
that tbe Republican defeat in New Hamp
shire was only temporary, did not daro to
expect such a victory in Connecticut. The
Democrats both in and out ot Congress iv
Washington, feel very, very sore. They
say "Jim Nye did the j )b. If he. had only
kept away from Connecticut, all would have
been well." Doubtless, had not Senators
Buckingham and Nyo (who have had the
best opportunity of witnessing the exhibi
tion on the Sonato floor of personal spite,
of a certain small few, against the Presi
dent) gave tbo Connecticut people some
wholesome advice, they would havo
strayed from the fold.
Tho Territorial election which is to come
off this mouth in the District, will be
much affected by tho recent elections in
Connecticut and tho West. No stone will
be left unturned by Iho Democrats, bow
ever, to wiu. It is pretty generally well
understood that much money is being
raised by them to purchase votes with.—
Even colored men are askod to vote with
tho Domocracy, they being assured that the
issues of tho past aro dead, and no more
will they need the protecting hand of tho
Republican party. But the colored people
hore in tbe District remember 100 well the
iron hand of the slave holding Democracy
of the South, and can not bo coaxed or
Senator Morton, in his remarks in the
Senate on Tuesday, made one of the best
campaign speeches for tho Republican
party of tho District. In referring to the
allegation of Prank Blair, from Missouri,
that the people of the South wero willing
to givo negro suffrage, Mr. M. said : "That
Is, they are willing to give it a trial under
Democratic auspices, and then if Ihe ne
groes will not vote tho Democratic ticket,
their exercise of the right of suffrage will
bo declared subversive of good law and
ordor, and It will be taken from them.
The Senator may deny it, but it isindis-.
putable that tho Democratic party, if it
gets into power, will deprive the negro of
the suffrage. It is ouo of the issues upou
which they will go into tho next Presiden
WHICH PARTY ?
Ten years are but a point in thu Nation
al cycle ; yet that is the duration, so far,
of Republican control iv this country. Iv
that brief period, Republicanism has de
veloped the true principles af government,
established the national unity and suprem
acy, restored a dismembered empire, de
6ned and defended liberty, abolished
slavery, reformed the constitution, opened
up tho interior of a continent, challenged
tho respect and admiration of civilizid
government everywhere, organized and
disbanded the largest and most powerful
armies and navies known to history, pre
served tho public honor and credit and laid
tho foundations of national existence in tho
imperishable granite of tho popular affec
tions ; and this is tho giant which is about
to bo assailed by a crushed, but desperate
loe ; this is the party whoso mission is sup
posed to be obsolete. Shall this grand
history be ignored ? Shad tlio progress of
a whole people bo brought to a dead stand?
Shall the work of the decade be blotted
out? Shall the nation now coinmcuco a
backward, movement ? Tho throes of an
attempted revolution have left but two
parties on thesurface ; the parLy ofthe re
bellion and oppression, and the party of
liberty and progress. Let tho people
choose which they will serve.

Letter from Petersburg.
Petersburg, April 11
To the Editor ofthe State Journal.
As the spring elections approach tho
Democrats developo their nefarious schemes
to deprive the majority, of tho legislative
branch of the city government. We will
not make any comments upon their spy
system, as it is already discovered and
won't work. All we say is, never take

Already the over-burdened tax piyers
have been put lo an expense of nearly
$1,000 to remove the street oommisssioner,
from the Fifth to tho Sixth ward, solely
for fear ho might cast his own vote, and
influence others, for tho Republican can
didate for council, in a ward where the
two parties aro numeric illy about equal.
I am informed that a tobacco manufac
turer in tlio city has, through au agent,
driven Republican voters from a whole
row of houses, for the purpose (t vaiu
hope) of saving the ward to flits present
0 riiucil. So extremely (modern) Demo
cratic is this body, that iv a year's admin
istration not a single law lias been enacted
to benefit the woikiugman or ameliorate
the condition of the poor ; while a well-

Aa this paper will bo read by many of
our citizens, [ would impress them all
with the folly of permitting any one to
turn them or their friends out of doors,
without due process of law. While I
would advise all to pay rent promptly, and
treat the landlord or agent with all proper
respect, do not in any iustanco allow the
whip to.be cracked over yon, nor be terri
fied into leaving yonr homos, by those act
ing in defianco of all law and custom.
If you can stand firm and retain posses
sion, you have the law all on your side,
and it will require at least three months to
remove you, and you will find after elec
tion, thoy will have no objection to your
remaining. Our political enemies are
desperate—a virtual acknowledgement of
their weakness—but they will not dare bj
far to transgress the law as to make them
amenable to tbo courts. Stand fnm, Be*
publicans! Yonr ranks are filling Dp
daily ! Yigilaueo will secure success !
Several of our prominent tobacco factories
will suspend operation this week for tbe sum
mer season. A great many workmen will then
be thrown upon the public for a support. \Ve
would suggest to theui the propriety of seek
ing work upon some of the railroads. Many
roads aro now in nood of hands.
The object of tho abovo item from Iho
Petersburg Index of the 10th, is well
understood. We are soon to havo an elec
tion, and this is tho commenc-mient of an
attempt to intimidate Republican voters.
Who ever heard of closing the factories
duriug the summer months when, of all
other seasons, they work to tho bat pecu
niary ad vantage. Such action would bo
unprecedented, and all Interested parties
may rest assured that no policy so suicidal
will be pursued.
You may bo approached and told that if
you do not vote for your employers work
will be stopped, (a' flagrant violation of
law, and one they do not intend to make
themselves amenable to). So havo no
fears, but continuo true to your principles,
as wo know you will ; and power, greater
than that of capital, will sco you protect
ed in the rights intended to ty) secureel you
by the Stato and national constitutions.
From a hint given otu in the above, you
may soon look for labor agents to eutice
tbe more credulous to leave under promise
of heavy wages, &o. Bewaro of them !
