"Small pox is a pest. It is worse
than the plague ; for if not kept in sub
jection it is more general sparing
neither young nor old, rich nor poor, and
commits greater ravages than tLe plague
ever did. Small-pox ia a disgrace to
any civilized land, as there is no necessi
ty for iu prcseuce. If vaccination were
frequently and properly performed, small
pox would be unknown. Cow-pox is a
weapon to conquer small pox, and drive
it ignomiuiously from the field. My firm
belief, then, is that if every person were,
every t'x n geari, duly and properly vac
cinated, small-pox might be utterly ex
terminated. But as long as there are
such lax notions on the subject, and such
gross negligence, the disease will always
be rampaut ; for the poison of small-pox
never slumbers nor sleeps, but requires
the utmost diligence to eradicate it The
ly advocated the absolute necessity of
every person being vaccinated once every
seven years or oftener, if there were an
epidemic of small pox in tbe neighbor
hood." These eminent physician also
aver that very few fatal cases are re
corded as occurring after vaccination,
and these may be considered as only ex
ceptions to the geueral rule, and some of
them might be tiaced to the vaccination
not having taken effect They moreover
say that persons who take small-pox af
ter vaccination are seldom pitted, and
the disease assumes a comparatively
mild form. The necessity, therefore, for
a compulsory vaccination Ian aud its
utility is also demonstrated by unanswer
able statistics, coutained iu tbe report of

the way of providing rood school

teachers for our children, and we have
yet much to do Lu this direction ; and
then supplement our present voluntary

First. A judicious truant law.
second. A judicious law preventing
the employment of children in mines,
manufactories. Sec., without some provi-

Third. A law authorising Boards of
Directors in cities and large towns to ap
point and pay, when needed, a tchool
mittiimary, to visit the parents of cbil
dren not in school or attending irregu

tendance. Fourth. A law 'legalising, if not re
quiring, the establishment of a home for
friendless or neglected children in every
county iu the Commonwealth, and giv
ing the hoards of directors of the several
school districts power to send to these
institutions eut-h children as the safety
of society might justify beiug disposed
j themselves, they should place them iu
i a useful trade. w
A compulsory law, even if fully en
forced, cannot bring iuto the schools
children suffering for want of food, cloth
ing or shelter, children who must work
or steal in order to live, children who
have no parents or friends to care for
them ; and a large proportion of those
growing up in entire ignorance are of
this class. The county home is just the
place for them, and tens of thousands
might by its means be plucked like
"brands from the burning," and made
good members of society. I have almost
nubounded faith in tbe effect of good in
fluences upon the character of the young
I believe molt firmly that if all the ig
norant, vicious boys and girls in Penn
sylvania, could be at once brought into
properly managed homes of the kind
just spoken of, nineteen out of every
twenty could be made good men and
good womrn good members of society.
If society is ever reformed, it will be
done in this way. If the evils we com
plain of and suffer under, arc ever remo
ved, rooted out, it will be effected by
tbe right education of the young.
It is in favor, also, of the plan propo
sed, that it does not disturb the sacred
n'?s of the family a matter so dear to
the Anglo Saxon race. The S'ate wo'd
not be called upou to overrule or break
down parental authority, but merely
step in to take the parents place where
children either have no parents or none
that cared for them
I cannot too earnestly press this sub
ject upon your attention and upon the.
attention of all good men.

After leaving the West ia the Spring,
we remained at onr paternal home at
Spruce HilL Juniata county, during the
summer, awaiting the abatement of the
Yellow Fever in Charleston. We left
your county Nov. 27th, and came by Bal
timore, taking tbe " Bay Line,' as it is
called. This route has the advantage
over all others, because you are taken
down the Bay from Baltimore in one of
their beautiful and commodious steamers
to Portsmouth, opposite Norfolk, Va.,
having the advantage of a good night's
rest and warm breakfast. At Ports
mouth we took the cars for Charleston
by way of Weldon, Wilmington, Charles
ton and Florence. Tbe railroad fare
from Patterson was $26.50 each. We
left Baltimore on Tuesday at 4 o'clock
P. M., and were in Charleston at 8 A.
M., on Thursday.
Here, then, is our home for the pres
ent. What a contrast between this great
southern city and your quiet village on
tbe banks of tbe Juniata. But we must
not here tell that difference for fear we
shall anticipate some of those subjects
about which we intend to trouble you
in the future. We live in the heart
of the city in the midst of its noise
of business There is no danger of our
becoming lonesome. Our house is large
and pleasant, giveu us, with its furniture
free of rent. We want for nothing
have all that heart could wish, we have
health and strength plenty to eat,
plenty to drink and plenty to wear.
God has granted us at least one great
blessing our health was never better.

This is the first Saturday evening since
the new year commenced; 'tie cold, cloudy
and windy, but in the heavy clouds there
are great big breaks through which shine
the bright stars.and seem all the brighter
by being along side of the heavy inky
colored clouds. If tbe great dark and
heavy Republican cloud that has come

in it so that a star or two of tbe Andy

How good it would make me feel to

Southern stars went down and sunk
forever in a bloody rebellion, aud our
Northern stars were so much attracted
by the sinking rebel stars that they
followed them down almost into the gnlf
of Rebellion, too. That was the time
when I said, "By the Eternal, that's not
the way Andy Jackson used to do things,
and I ain't agoing along." And I didn't,
and Pvc been mighty glad a thousand

Democrats gave v. the Republicans the
Speaker so that the business of tbe Leg
islature might go on. They are agoing
to try and make a good thing out of it
for their party. If the Democrat and
Reguter don't come out heavy on how
a great a thing the Democratic Senators
did when they told Charley to vote for
Rutan, then the region about the Seven
Stars will be surprised. It wants feed
of this kind The Democrats are good
at getting their fellows to look at a mole
hill, and then presto change, come right
along, and they imagine it a mountain.
Our party already think they see a big
mountain in what Charley did, with an
icy capon it that you fellows can't crawl
over. If Andy Jackson could be heard
from, I'll bet high he'd call it a small
mole-hill, not worth looking at. When
our fellows told Charley to do that, they
only did what was right. No man who
is fair and knows that tbe State is
Republican and that tbe election in the
Fourth District of Philadelphia, to fill
the place made vacant by the death of
Senator Connell, can go no way but Re
publican, which would give the Senate
to your party will ever dare to claim
that our fellows did more than tbe fair
thing when thaw. told Charley to vote for
Rutan. No fellow tliM hasn't a cracked
head would expect you fellows to give
onr fellows the Speaker when yon are
entitled to him, and can get him when
tbe election in the city is over. Charley
is wise, and he saw that it wouldn't do to
play the mule in this case, and keep the
Senate out of a Speaker one month, and
keep the expenses of that month on the
State, and all for doing nothing. He saw
too that oar party would lose ten or fif
teen thousand more votes next fall if onr
fellows would do that wrong. Now I'm
willing that Charley Buckalew shall have
Iota of credit for lots of foresight ; just
enough to keep our party from acting the
mule again, and losing us many thou
sands of votes next fall. Tliat was like
some of Audy Jacksou's generalship
Oar fellows should give Charley a vote j
of thanks. But when oar fellows claim j
anything else than mere foresight, through
