TIIE STATE AND THE FREE-SCHOOL*.
While tho Free-Schools arc on trial by
the people of Virginia, it seems to ns very
important that all elastics should clearry ap
prehend the interest which the State has in
their maintenance. Many intelligent and
influential persons even regard this institu
tion as an interloper and not a legitimate
pensioner upon the public bounty ; some
thing to be tolerated, rather than cherished ;
a privilege and a charity extended rather than
a right guaranteed. Something subordinate
and iinconsequcntial which may b.- post
poned to make way for other claims ami
This view of the matter is wholly false,
and dangerous to the best Interests of the
The right of every being born into the
world to the best education of which i_
faculties are callable, is as sacred as its
rightH to live. Society is bound to pro
tect the physical cxistenco of children.
By severe penalties, it guards against in
fanticide, that it may not be rdbbed ot
its natural increase, aud that the right of
every child to live may be protected.
But the child is not merely a physical
existence. Its bod)' is only of value as the
transient dwelling place of an immortal
mind. What food is to the body, eihtcati.r'.i
The State provides against starvation of
cliildren, intcrferring against the thriftless
ness or parsimony of the parent, to protect
the young life from extinction or enfeeble
incut. -Equally imperative is the obligation
to sec that the minds of its children are
not dwarfed, enfeebled, or corrupted by
imperfect cull ore; that, on the contrary,
they are furnished with the appropriate
food, to secure healthy ami symmetric
growth, into the noblest proportions of
manhood and womanhood. The State
cannot omit to do this, without justly in
curring censure for a failure to protect the
feeblest of its subjects in the enjoyment of
their just rights. The highest and mott
sacred otiligalimt imposed upon the Stati is
Us jurisdi'-lii.n. To neglect this duty, is a
crime of such magnitude as only Stati B

<!<tle urn::! ~lii.;il, ~, Ihe jienple will be ig
nfiuil. By virtue of its police power tlie
late hi given jurisdiction over the whole
übject of the prevention ami punishment j
f crime. As it is the duty of the State, so
t is clearly its interest that all subjects of
uv should be made sulliciently intelligent
p understand the hue. To rear children in
ignorance of their duty to society, and then
punish them as criminals is monstrous.
No fact is more folly established than the
favorable cll'ect of education in diminishing
crime. While there arc many cases of ed
ucated men becoming criminals, the vast
majority uf cases conic from that ferocious
and barbarious class who had no education.
The statistics of the Stato prisons and
criminal courts show that three-fourths of
the criminals are uneducated.
If we sluily ut all the causes that lead
to crime we can moro readily appreciate
the preventive value of education.
No one can doubt that a very prominent
cause ol crime is extreme poverty, and
rvcrty is the child of ignonhCC. Give
ticalion to a youth and his quickened
powers are never at a loss for expedients to
make a comfortable living. If hy unfortun
ate circumstances he remains poor, he sup
tlemcnts his limited physical enjoyments
)y intellectual pleasures, and so is content.
It i.s always true that an intelligent man or
woman will live upon far less than an
gnorant and undeveloped one. intelli
gence teaches line economies, which multi
ply all blessings, like the loaves and fisho
which Christ blessed for his disciples.
Thus education diminishes crime by less

by tilling the mind with nobler aspirations,

justifies all measures to prevent evils against

All old colored man of this State, who
had followed his young master throughout
the war, and who, when the young soldier
was wounded, amid shot and shell rushed
into the very jaws of death, rescued the
wounded soldier and bore him to the em
brace of his devoted parents—waa naked
to vote for that young master, iv preference
to a 'Va: pet-bagger," who was a compara
tive stranger to tlie old man.
We listened to appeals, so eloquent, from
the young master and his friends, that they
drew tears from the old man's eyes. He
declared his devotion to the boy he had
nursed, and whom he loved as his own, and
at the same time was determined to vote for
On being pressed for a reason, he an-
Iswored: "Mass GeOTge is my friend, I
J know, but he says if he is electetl to the
convention, lie gwine to keep me from
voting ; de udder man say he gwine to let
me vote; and, gemuien, whether right or
wrong, I want to vote, and I gwine to go
for de man dat say 1 shall."
Will the writer of the article in the Whit/

cere in tlie language quoted by us, read aud
remember the words of this old colored
man? If he will do so, and reflect for a
moment, he will be satistied that "carpet"
baggers" have had but little to do with the
colored people being "handed against us."
A few white men in this State, of whom
we were one, upon ascertaining, that the
power which had stricken the manacles of
slavery from the limb; of the black man,
had wisely determined to invest him wilh
tiie franchise, in order that he might really
enjoy his new condition ; accepted in good
faith that which we know to be irresistible;
