Education Dependent on Immigration.
I'ho Prussian system of education,
the most perfoet in tho world, could
not be practised, any more than the
system of Now England, in a country
so sparsely populated as Fairfield Dis
trict. Our District must first acquire
a population of one hundred and fifty
or two hundred thousand people be.
fore It will be as thickly scttlod as
Now England or Prussia, so that to
expect either system to prove success
ful here at present is prepostcrous.
For schools to be successful, the num
ber of pupils should be sufficient to
create onthusiasm, and to command
the first talent in the country amongst
the teachers. The school-house
should be near the house of the pupil,
and the labor of the pupil should not be
required at home as an almost neces
sary contribution to the support of the
family. Let every farmer, then, that
reads this, resolve, "I will do what I
can to bring in immigrants. I wish a
school for my childron nearer home,
and a school taught by a superior
tocher paid well for his services. I
at) poor, it is true, broken by the war,
and tormented by faithless laborers,
but I will help others, nevertheloss.
I will help the District, for soon the
District will help me. if the immi
gration Socioly will assist me, I will
settle one family at least on my farm ;
and with the profits, I will oduonte
my boy handsomely, and sond my
girl to school."
But school eduontion, import.ant as
it is, is not all. Wo need another
kind of eduoation that Immigrants
alone will give us-education in the
idea of the dignity of honest work.
There are many tiings quito nceossa
ry to be done, and which own our pee
ph (can easily do, but which they
neglet, because it isn't customary.
Aloney could be saved or made by do
ing thenl, and that money invested ill
books for' the inistrucition, imIprovemelnt
and enteurtaimnent of the tamtily, or ill
furniture or oither coinflorts that would
relnne their tastos and elovato their
unorle of life. immi nigrants will teach

Again, ill our thinly sottled IDis
triot, there is not sufiiint variety of

bor of the State is to seourod. If
possible, the Western section of the
State, which feels able to manage the
negro olemeti, is to be conciliated by
separate schools for the blacks, and by
judicious participation in office and
plunder, to join in the conspiracy for
placing the remainder of the State
under the hool of the negro. The
operations are to be largo, so that the
oflices and spoils may be equally large
and may support a strong and numor
ous band of apparently public spirit
od politicians, but in reality, of veri
table thieves. We think it worth
while to call the attention of tax-pay
ers to what is going on. We counsel
a District meeting simply to record
our unwillingness that the present
General Assembly, pro. ton., should
pledge the credit of the State, so
far as we, the tax-payers, are concern
od, for any other purpose than simply
to maintain law and order and pro

Don't Exasperate Them.
Some of our friends wished to lose
one-half of the victory before going
into the light, to alienate the soldiers'
voto, and kill all enthusiasm in the
canvass by nominating Chase, ex
claiming "don't exasporate them," as
if such tactics ever conqiered a despo.
rate foe. Now that we have started,
right here in Winnsboro, the ball in

utterly insiguifioant and contempti

our General assonibly pro. tem.3
which will conpitely break its-power
for evil, and make its momnbor~s look

ito Resolved, That in the death of Col. Wm. ..
nd Alston, our political brother and much lot
nd ed friend, and fellow-citizen, we have re
er olved a lose that 'is almost irraperable.
fi. As a politioian he was candid, out-spoken
ly and consistent. As a gentleman, he was
re high-toned, just and honorable. As a neigh
or bor and oitizen, he was kind and obliging,
to and as a friend, husband, parent and chris
lie tian, true and devoted.
n- Resolved, That while we yield with mok
ad ness to the will of an Allwise Ptovidence,
- we together with his family and kindred,
ral deeply lament his sudden and untimely end,
he and as.an appreciation of his many virtues
at and general worth, a blank page be ree

ito It is at all times a mournful task to ehron
>rt idle the death of those we love. When,
)lo however, the old man, like a shook of corn
fully ripe, is gathered to his rest, we roeog
to nizo it as the consummation of the penalty
lo; imposeil upon all flesh : "Dust thou art, and
til unto dust thou shalt return." But when
the grim messengor suddenly comes in the
morning of life, before the preparation for
its active duties has well begun, and there is
a promise of a useful and honorable man
hood, whilst bowing in submission, we are
12 constrained to exclaim, "H1ow unsearchable
are thy judgments oh God, and thy ways
past finding out."
of Thus must we regard Willie's sad and un
in- timely death. lio was a remarkably bright
- and active boy; with a mind of more than
, ordinary capacity, lie was warm-hearted,
loving, devoted to his parents, eminently
on truthful, and thoroughly unselfish in his
r- disposition. This was manifested in a ro
of markablo degree while suffering from the
ud wound that caused his death.
en Whilst out hunting with an older brother,
by the acidental discharge of the gun in
so his own hands, he received a mortal wound,
nd -on being asked by his brother if he Was
of hurt, he replied, "Yes, but, oh I .Ira, how
Pa and Ma will grieve about this ; I am not
ho afraid to die, and I regret this accident
more on account of Pa and Ma, and my
brothers and sisters than m self. Tell
m- them to pray for me," he then knelt doen
w- and prayed for himself and all his loved
nt ones. Although from the terrible nature of
. the wound, his sufferings must have bon in
tense, yet with a manly fortitude, not often
found at his age, ho suppressed alt com
repanscsarce a groan escaping his lips,
ma ot h grie( of his weeping parents should
-be ineo'ease. Thus even in his extremity
i.manifesting that thoughtful care of others
and self-denying disposition which botokcens
a warm and ginerous heart.
hbe After twelve hours of suffering he was,
ar- released from paln apd the bright spirit re. es
re- turned to the God who-gave it,
n. Is seldom that we thus find blended in
oeperson hoome-nly traits of chqraoter
ayand mental encdewments, which, fired, as*
,they were in this~ ihsance, by a lau4ble
isambition to excel in all his undertak~ie
adgive such abundant promise of future use
safulness and honor. Whilst, however, we
deplore the aceident that has thus sufddenly
closed his earthly career, let. us rest in hope
allt that those talents, now indeed "angel
an- bright," are more aotiuoly omplod in a
,as higher and holier sphere.
