A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Hefrld itn thehigbest respect ram

The law in reference to Free
Public Schools provides that each
County Board of Examiners shall
divide their county into convenient
school districts for all purposes con
nected with the general interests of
education, and re-district the same
whenever, in their judgment, the
general good requires it. Every
school district so organized shall.be
numbered, and shall be a body cor
The Board of Examiners have
never divided our County into
school districts but have adopted
the townships as sbhool districts.
In some respects this plan is con
venient, but It does not commend
itself for anything else; and the
general interests of education as
well as the public good demand
that the county should be re-dis
tricted ag soon as practicable. This
matter was called to oar attention
by one in whose judgment we have
confidence, but, apart from that, we
feel that the suggestion is wise and
Smaller and more convenient
school district would give us better
schools by developing a. livelier in
terest in them and promoting a
heartier co-operation- between the
school trustees and the School Com
missioner. The law lays it down as
the duty of the trustees to call
meetings of the people of the dis
trict for consultation in regard to
its school interests. Owing to the
size of the districts, these meetings
could not be held conveniently,
and we believe that they have not
been held. If, however, the lines of
each d-itrict embraced a particular
nejgiborhood large enough to sup
fjort two schools, one white and one
colored, the trustees would feel a
%w personal interest in their schools,
and the people could confer easily
L and conveniently in regard to
school interests. The school trus
tees are expected to work, without
compensation, for the general good,
and it is a mistake to extend their
authority over so great a scope of.

This towjiship, which is also a
school districts, is divided by a
river. Is it not plain, that it would
be both wisr: and more convenient
to divide it into at least two school
districts ? Township Eleven isq an
other examp)le. It is washed by
*the waters of Broad River, some
twenty miles from Newberry, while
one extremity of it lies within three
-- miles of town. It is unreasonable
to expect three trustees to manage

Daily has long been first class and
as such has spread over and entered
into all ranks of society, until it
has come to be looked on as great a
daily need as one's regular daily
meals, and se in a lesser degree
does the great weekly stand, the
only exception being in its lesser
visits. The Sunday News par ex
cellence, is the pure cream, and

While "UDcle Sam" is spending
his money with a reckless disre- a
gard of his children's rights and
interests, we feel called upon to
make a suggestion, which, of course,i
will never reach his ears.. The t
suggestion grows out of the fact '
that the post-office has been dis- .
continued at Liberty Hall, and no
Dne can be induced to serve as post- t4
master in the absence of a salary.
The office is needed, and the neigh- b
borhood wshes its continuance, but
it Irill not pay a post-master. The ,
country store at which the office b
was formerly kept, has -been closed,
and country post-offices cannot live
apart from country stores. The
store keeper consents to keep the
post-office, not bedause there is any 6
pay in it, but because~'h& -expects
it to draw customers to his store. s
We cannot see why the govern- e
ment refuses to give small salaries
to country post-masters. It has
established a postal service which t
ought to carry its blessings in the
shape of the mails to country peo
ple. This could be done'with greater
satisfaction by giving small salaries;
and the outlay would not be felt by
the treasury. Even South Carolina,
poor as she is, is more generous
and business-like ; for does she not
give a salary of twenty-five dollars
a year to each country trial justice ?
How much abler the general gov
ernment ; and how much more im
portant are country post-offices!
A MAGNIFICENT ENTERPRISE.
Savannah's new Hotel, although
not a brick has yet been laid, is
assuming the proportions and de- I
scriptions which a bona fide capital i
of $500,000 is calculated to do. It
will be a magnificent structure and
as well a pride to its stockholders,
as to the city of Savannah. No
expense will be spared in making
it first class. We hope that the
new Hotel talked of for Charleston
will not fall to the ground.
A Southern Immigration Associ
ation is looming into prominence,
and Charleston is spoken.of as be
ing a favorable depot for this Castle
Garden. If this be accomplished
the South will no longer be subject

THREE GEORGIA ELDERS ON A
-Fron the Elberton, Ga., New south.
On Christmas day three old gen
tiemien, one a Methodist, another a
Baptist, and the other a Presbyte
rian, all met at the little Town of
Bowman, on the Elberton Air'Line
Railroad, and being old friends re
peat.edly joined in a social glass
until the spirits so animated them
that-one of them suggested that
they shd all do something to
enjoy Christmas, in which all three
readily concurred, provided they
did not transcend or violate the dis
cipline of the various churches.
The Baptist said that there was
nothing in the discipline of his
church that prohibited "singing,''
the Methodist said that he knew
nothing in the discipline of his that
prohibited "patting," and the Pres
byterian said that his church had
legalized dancing, and so the Bap
tist commenced singing, the Metho
dist patting and the Presbyterian
dancing, and thus enjoyed them
selves in the streets for an hour or<
more, when they mutually agreed<
to suspend in order to join in an
other glass and sweet repose in the
srms of Morpheus.
