Mow the American child is ikwloped
into iho true American style of character
in die I'otnniiiii school is far more easy lo
lie seen than to be -escribed. The teacher
cannot nuT-esliniali' liis olficc ; the bnanl
of education cannot be 100 wise ; but, after
all, the great thing is done when the child
ren of all classes ami types of nature are
compeflod to spend six yean together un
der one roof. The very essence of Ameri
can life is, that under our constitution ami
laws we are obliged to work all our life in
perpetual contact with our fellow-men, re
specting in them all rights we claim for
ourselves. This involves us all in many
exceedingly disagreeable phases of experi
ence ; especially does it grate on the taste
ami sensibility of all orders of highly ethi
cal. <1 antl superior men. It is a great trial
for a Seward or a Simmer to reflect tliat
the vote of a scavenger counts as much as
his own ; that James Fisk, Jr., has the
same legal right to be President as Abra
ham Lincoln. Hut this is just the "tight
place" into which America intends to put
every suiK'rinr man or woman—surround
the best people by the worst, ami compel
them to go to work and regenerate the com
munities in which they live, in self-defense.
The most shocking thing in English society
to me, as 1 saw it, was that so many
wealthy, educateil, respectable families
could live unconcerned, almost unconscious,
in a charming content, in a country where
every tenth human being is a pauper, where
Ihe lower regions of society are a seething
pandemonium of all that is most hideous
and violent in this world. Thank heaven,
the best people of this country cannot get
off into a little social clique and live in
this dreadful oblivion to human want and
wo.'.
The development of the American char
acter demands, also, that opportunities
should be offered for the higher education
at public expense. Our high schools, free
libraries and art galleries are not. an excre
scence on our educational system. It is
just as important to the welfare of the
country thai a poor child of genius should
have the means of becoming a statesman,
artist or author, as that the child of ordi
nary gifts should be made an intelligent
citizen. The charge that these schools tax
the poor to educate the rich, is absurdly
unfounded. The vast majority of pupil's I
who arc found in these higher schools are
superior children at parents who otherwise
could not give them a good education.
They are there lit ted for teachers, and the
various posts of skilled labor and profes
sional service, or enrich private life wilh
their culture. To abolish these schools and
compel every child of poor parents to rely
on private charity for a superior education,
would be to back down upon the most of
fensive system of Kuropcan society—a pro
cess we shall not undertake, even to ap
pea.se the discontent of any number of
wealthy nnd educated men, who, in con
spiring against our system of American
schools, are aiming at a wholesale change
in A merican society.
The common school is chielly valauble,
not for the little knowledge it conveys—lit
tle enough, (Jod knows, of the infinity of
truth—but for its function as a rehearsal of
American life. There the bright buy is
compelled to endure the dull boy ; the lit
tle idol of a wealthy home obliged to bear
wilh the girl of her mother's servant; all
orders and conditions of little ones daily
held by a law that represents society and
government, to live together, sec each oth
er's g.iod and evil, adjust themselves to
each other's rights, learn to manage and
conciliate and generally to get on amid this
daily conflict, and thtis to develop a char
acter for practical sagacity, character, cath
olic judgment forbearance, tact and firm
ness. All the temptations of the common
school room are the temptation of ordinary
American life to which every man or wo
man is exposed. There is danger here for
our little ones ; but we have fought 2511
years to place ourselves in just that kind of
peril in our whole order of society. It is
too late to retreat now in one section unless
we would give up in all.
Destroy the common school and place
one generation of our children in the sole
care of the family, the parochial and pri
vate scoools, and you have ft generation of
people that cannot live together as citizens
—a hot bed of revolutions. Our only
safety now is to establish the people's
in all its grades, on immutable foundations,
in every State, county, township in the
land ; make it the best that can be made in
the present circumstances of the people ;
watch it with that eternal vigilance which
is the price of liberty ; make it so good
and powerful that it will compel every pri
vate and religious school to be its rival in
excellence and national spirit. Then place
our children there, just as we give our
youth everywhere to' life, doing our best to
aid them in using its opportunities and
avoiding its temptations, praying all tlie
time that we may be able to establish a
republic on the divine foundations of reve
rence for God and justice to mankind. —
Rev, A. I). Mayo.
Tin-: announcement comes from London
that arrangements have been made by As
sistant Secretary Richardson to dispose of
the balance of the new four per cent. loan.
The whole matter is to be taken in hand
by the London house of Jay Cook & Co.
As a matter of fact, however, our hard
working Uovernor lias, with his other mul
tifarious duties, been arranging with the
clear-headed, persistent Secretary of the
Treasury all the minute details of this
great undertaking. These details were
completed only three days ago and tele
graphed to London, where the necessary
arrangements were concluded by Mr. Kich
ardson.
The firm of Jay Cooke agree to purchase
$10,(100,000 at once, aud pay the cash, antl
then to dispose of a specified amount each
month till all are taken. National hanks
will have reasonable opportunity to pur
chase so much as they may desire in ex
change fur live-twenties. "The balance is
all to be provided for.
Thus again this great firm comes to the
aid of the government just at the right time
and in the right way.-— Washington Chroni- i
The New York Tribune says : "Thus
far, the evidence elicited by the Hoard of
the iron was good, .nnd that it was very
bad ; that the water was low, and that it
wasn't low ; that the engineer was neglect- I
ing his duty, and that he was giving u mi
and sufficient attention to his boiler ; that
He- initial fracture at the moment of explo
sion occurred at a point opposite the lower
range of Hues, on the 'port' side, and that
it was at a point near the 'man-hole'on top ;
that the steam was escaping through the
safety-valve and that it wasn't ; that 'gas'
did it, and that 'gas,' didn't. <)n Iho other j
hand, there has been an absolute iinaiiiiuitv
on the point that the explosion was caused
by 'over-pressure.' That phrase, in this
case, means anything or nothing. To us it
looks like an ample admission that all thaw j

Moreover, I hero is no clime to which it has not

I rally. It Is admirably suited for every race of
men on the face of the globe.
It is a very significant fact, that notwithstand
ing ihe long period of years lhat Ihe "PAIN
KILLER has MM before the world, it has
nc\er Mfl one whit of its iv.piilarity, but, on the
contrail, ihe call for it has steadily increased
from its first discovery, and at no previous time
has the demand for il licou so great, or Ihe quan
tity made been so large, as it is to-day.
Another significant fact is, that nowhere has
the "PAINKILLER" ever been in higher re
pute, or b«a more generally used by families
land individuals, thnn it has Is-en here nt home,
where it was first discovered and introduced.
That Iho "PAIN KILLER" will continue lo
