Invest, and Don't Hoard,-It is Folly.
Thousands of dollars, which could
be most usefully employed, aro oow
lying idle i the South. The want of
confidence in the futura of tle coun
try, considered politically and social
ly, has a great dcal to do with this
State of things, but want of informa
tion uponi politicl economy and the
principles of finance has much more.
Now we kn)w how absurd it is to
hope to exhibit, to the comprelhcnsion
of the Agricultural class-, the truth on
this subject, (one of the most diflicult
in tihe world) and we beliove that the
only remedy is time dissipat ing fool
ish fears. The lorsses sustrined by the
Southern people, through the Con
federate cur renlcy, are too rcevnt, and
too feelingly remembered, for thenm to
put. faith in flinanciers or in Govern.

ourselves to-day by quoting the bes
articlo we have seon on the sul'jct
from the Augusta Constiltutionals0
promising our readers a view on thi
subject, inl our noxt issule, which possi

"We donot know liow' much influ

Now we go further and assert, that
what is physically true of more

of beliefs of every kind. If but one

the success of hsis school than he is

therefore, miay not he amiss.
I There are in Fairfiehl Distrid, rens

- dies simiultaiseisly ednieneAl , before
war, at Monticello, Dolko. Winnsboro
and else wh ere, over two iunidred
young ladies, whoso eelin tion has
r been, during tie pnst few wretched
years,grossly neiglected or impe rfect
ly attended to, wlose parenits alc noe ,
- by reason of ite presont crop,fit//
s aible to be economeel and smve nmney by
sending then to a well v-cnd u.ted

f ble the town patroia age Imay be nioV,
f and may becoime hereafter (for
Winnsboro is certainm to grow) the pa
1. tronage froi the sut rro'nl d iig country
, is far higher game. If Mir. Stuirt at
s tracts a portion of it, he will have in
f jured no one, and will heo content.
- Just so, to', ill fixiiig upon rates of
tuition, Mr. Stu art looked furtler
0 than Wiinnsboro anud its execelleit
r schools. His j udg meit being con
vinced that a chango of social condi
e tion called for a change in the rates of
g rates of several other tehools similar
t to the one he designed to estallish,
, and after a caroful com Pa risol alnd tn
0 exercise of his-owin ju dgiment approv
- ed by that of two most sober and judi
cious friends, ie published his rates.
t Let the continility recollent that h
ri took the in iteative in lessenin1g the
o price of tuition, to sut their poer1ty.
a Whether voelunta rily or by comnpul
I sion, every otlher school, inchlutling Mt.

Mr. Stuart, from long expeiicneo as
f a teacher, has returned tothec good old
3 practive of a morning and an evenming
session, so miuchi bet ter for the I onslt h
-of the teahoe.m and progssc of the pn
I pil. Let the conimiunity remember
that HET JIAs tN'fnODUCED this whole
I sonme reform, andlP pi t~y-thirough his
I example and earneust advice, it is not,
r improbable that his warm friend, the
Principal of Mt. Zion Inst it ute, may
return to the good old enstoui.
) Lastly, when it is dlesired andi reruest
'ed, but not of hesr wise., Mr. Stun rt will
teach either Lamt in or French without
C extra chavgo. Hie is surprised that
a gentleman .hould have asserted, thmat
lie had refused to teach his daughter,
Sunless allowed to teach liar French,
Latin or Greek. What an unmitigat
ed absurdity ! Iliw thick must be

or than shoe-loather what passes in

Iinsane 1 Has lie tanght fourteen
years, and not kinow how wretched the
- spelling, bow disgraceful the writing,
I how abominable thme punctuation, how
confused and jnmbled thi a matheimati

grammar, mn these deplorablo (days ?
And does ho propose sulocido at thme
start, by nogleotinig thceeessentials,~ and
cramming a brasin unfit for it with
Latin, Greek, anid Frenchi ? And lies
Mr. Stuart shown so little public spir
it, that any Inhabitant of Winnsboro
could hoar such a mnisrepresentation,
and then cirCuIthIe it / I f his dlog had
beon so misrepresented, Mr. stuart
would have said, "Sir, this is a is
take. I cannot believe oven my pup.
py such a fool. I must hoar him
bark out the absurdity, before I be.
hieve him oapable of it,'"
But though hoecannot but take this
view of this misrepresentation, Mr. S.
It not irritated overmuoh thereby, and
has no little resentments to fosteor,
but calmly and confidently gonmm'its
his reputation for manners, character
and ability to teach, to the ket ping
of thosO young ladies who have begun
to give him a fair trial, and his on
terpriso some little encouragement.
