FOR SUPERINTENDENT OF EDUCATION:
Our Free Education.
The State is taking much inter
est in the subject of free education.
There are signs of it on every hand.
Some of these signs are: 1, The
nomination of Col. Thompson for
Governor ; 2, The reopening of
the S. C. University ; 3, The re
opening of the Citadel Academy;
4, The Normal Institute. Are the
practical resalts commensurate with
all these outward signs of interest?
Is not the free school .system in
this State theoretical, rather than
practical? We believe it is. We
believe, farther, that the children
of the State do not derive one
fourth the benefit from the free
schools that officers and teachers
do. Look at the results, and see
if we are not correct. The school
fund may be roughly summarized
Poll Tax................ 175,000
S. C. University......... 12,500
Citadel Academy......... 15,000
With this large fund of over half a
million, has there been that general
diffusion of learning and that ad
vancement among the children that
would rightly be expected?i Where
are the fruits of thisgrand system?
It is a grand system-in theory ;
but in practice it has been, and still
is, deficient. The people should
not be satisfied with glittering gen
eralities about free education. Fine
speeches,- high-sounding eulogies
count for naught. There is no
doubt that a thorough reform is
needed ; and the watchword of that
reform should be, the greatest pos
sible good to the children. The
school system is managed honestly;
but in too much of a slip-shod style.
We need fewer and better schools,
as a rule. We need only so many
schools as will give all the children
chance to'attend. We -need the
w out of all teachers who are
Snot fit morally. intellectually and
by training to teach zaccessfully
the free school system shotzld not
be made an infirmary, nor an asylum
for men and women out of a job
we need competent teachers. We
need a Superintendent of Education
that will overlook the whole field;
will post himself as to every portion
of it, and will know It as thoroughly
as a railroad Superintendent knows
every mile, every trestle and every
cut and every employee on his road.
and who wlll see that every teacher
is competent and that he does his
duty, and that there are no more of
them than necessary. There is no
sense in paying ten men to do work
that five men can do. We need, as
a general thing, a better class of
School Commissioners throughout
the Counties ; especially do we need
School Commissioners who will see
to it that there are not too many
schools and that no unfit teachers
are employed. We need, as a rule,
a better class of Trustees ; men
* who know what constitutes a good
teacher, and will see that there are
schools enough, but not one more
than is needed. We need that free
S schools should be made in fact as in
name free. We ne%d that the free
schools should be run on strict
principles of business economy. A
man who would run his farm in the
loose, slip-shod style upon which
the free schools are conducted might
be able to make very pretty speeches
at grange meetings and agricultural
fairs and write nice articles on
farming for the papers ; but he
would soon find himsel.f without a
farm. _ _

At a meeting of the School Com
missioners in Columbia last week
tha following resolution was unani
mously adopted : "That the Legis
lature be petitioned to appropriate
annually $300 from the poll tax in
each County for the maintenance of
County Normal Institutes."
The Legislature should do no
thing of the kind. The Legislature
already appropriates-or has done
so for the past two or three years
$1,500 out of the school fund for a
State Normal Institute ; and to take
still further $10,200 for County
Institutes would be running the
Institute business too far entirely.
With all the school fund used for
running the schools we have not
been able to get free schools yet.
If County Normal Institutes are
worth $300 a year to the Counties,
which we very much doubt, let the
appropriation come from some other
source than the school fund.

the Fourth Circuit, has been nomi

plan in other Counties besides

a urnited front.

could wish. A sufflcient amount ot
this crop has, doubtless, been, planted
, to defray all expenses, if it coutin:e
as it now proniises. We cannot say

s We have a very fine school at this
d Academy, consisting of fifty-eight
bright-eyed boys and girls. These
childreu are never better pleased than
when they hear the sound of the bell,
calling tbern from play to engage in
r the more weighty duties of the day.
Who, after becoming acquainted with
little ones, can say that it is not a
' delight to labor with and for obedient
b and dilligent children ? We are al
ways highly pleased to see a scholar
poring over yet unknown lessons, while
others spend their recess on the play
dground whether lessons are prepared
or not. Now we do not object to play,
but rather encourage it at the proper
p time, but we love to see the old max
im, "duty before pleasure," carried
out. These children have before them
a certain point for which they are
r aiming, and a particular day which
they they eagerly await-especially
e the larger ones. This day when fully
decided on shall be known to the Ed
tors of HERALD, and if they will be
pleased to favor us with their presence,
both or either of them, they shall have
ra warm reception.
Now to sum up. We have been
wonderfully blessed this yeaa in every
respect. Therefore, what manner of
persons ought we to be ? Should we
not attribute all the praise and honor
to Him who has preserved us from
evil, while others have suffered many
calamities elsewhere ? Whether we
t have a day of thanksgiving appointed
or not, is it not our duty to send up
an offering of thanks to the Giver of
all gifts from the altars of our own
r hearts for blessings received ?

fThe Greenback General.
e An Interview with Mr. W. W. EusseIl, of
From a Staff Correspondent of the News
SENECA CIT, August 17.-I had
aan interview with Mrs.W. W. Russell
this evening about the condition of
the Greenback party and its plans.
rHe sai; "In Oconee County we
have nine clubs, organ iZedor abot to
a be organised, of which one is a colored
sclub. This club was organized with
e twenty members, but I learn that its
e membership has been increased. We
,expect to pall from one-half to two
thirds of the white vote of Oconee
County-this much has been conceded
by some of the Democrats. We have
not yet undertaken to organize these
people, but have so far only orgized
the disafiected throughout the State
in order to hold them in hand until
after the State nominations are made,
when we propose to put a full State
rticket la the field and make a canvass
of the State from the mountains to the
jseaboard. In our State nowinations
we will make our seleetoin from the
Demoerapie State ticket and that se
lection will be Cal. J. N. Lipscowb.
-The rest of the Greenback ticket will be
selected from the best material we can
get in the State, men, if possible, who
have not been connected with politics
in tihe State, and young men if we can
tget them. Circumstances tvill have
to direct us in our choice of a nominee
for Governor. - Unless we can nomi
nate a man who will promote the best.
and truest interest of the people, so
far as I am concerned the position of
Governor on our ticket may be left
blank. I think very well of Mr.
Campbell's nomination, but do not
know any thing abog it.
The basis of representation in our
State Convention will be one delegate
fr,m each club. No estimate of the
strength of the clubs can be given,
but we have organizations in every
county in the State, with the exeep
tions of A bbeville, Newberry, Laurens,
Union and York.
e vwill nomnnte a candidate for
Congress in each of'the Congressional
Districts. Mr. Baskins will probably
get the nomination in the Black Dis
trict, Col. Cash in the Fifth, Mr. J
Hlendrix McLane in the Fourth, Cal.
D. Wyatt Aiken in the third. I hiave
not Shougt of who tha'caiiiatei way
be in the other districts.
I asked Mr. Russell if there was
any truth iv the story that he had re
ceived $30,000 with which to make
the Greenback canvass in South Car
olitir. He said : "No, there is not one
syllable of truth in suiob;a epor.t. 4t
is altogtheffalse. If youi Want to
know who is furnishing the money to
conduct our 0ght I can tell you that
it is thirteen Carolina farmers. Ask
the National Bank at Anderson and
they san tell you how much I am giv
iug to the cause. I only wish some
body would give us $2,000, for with
this a'mount we could organize the
We will make a vigrous, active, en
ergetic campaign. The nominees on
our State ticket will make a thorough
canva-is-a regular 1876 an,p:tign. -
We hope to have aid in speakers from
outside the State. and will divide time
with the Demucrats if they will allow
it. My impression is that the Demo
crats cannot affol to divide time be
cause there is a bulldozing set in every
county who can't tolerate opposition."
Mr. Russell is in a very comfortable
frame of mind, and seems to think he is
in earnest. The Greenback clubs in this
county are weak in numbers and re- ]
source. and the Democratic leaders say
that the new party will not be able to
vote more than one hundred and fifty
white men at the November elections.
