int will soo the eminent propriety of
treating with contempt and scorn the
narrow-minded and vindictive spite of
some who pretend to express public
rentiment upon the groat question of
State education, the sectarian bigotry
and solf-interest of many others, the
barbariad folly of others still who op.
pose State education altogether, an.)
whill go straight forward in the work
of onlightoaing and developing the
State, and of building up our own
Stato capital to be an ornament and
centre of universal attraction. In the
last nu mber of DeBow's Review, there
is an article worth hooding upon this
very quostion of concontrating at a sin
gle point the higher institutions of
every description. Te writer, one of
the loading educators of the groat
West, states that oven in Germany,
where population is ten times as nu
nerous as hero, the universal sonti
ment now favors such concentration.
N'o states this simply as a fact with
out going into the reasons for it.
But we can give one reason that is
quite suflicient to determine the
whole question-the sti mulatiig effect
of the society of a largo number of
earnest and learned professors, each
anbitiousof fame, and the emulation
called forth by the presence of a large
number of earnest students mingling
in the same society, even when pursu
ing different courses of study.
We believe that, just at present,
the duty of sustaining the University
and of inaugurating a State Normal
Se hool devolves more particularly
'upon the fhegislaturo. But it would
require simply an earnest canvass of
the State by Colonel John P. Thom
ts and Colonel Alex. Haskell, or two
otiers like them, to get quite money
enough subscribed by the Survivors'
Associations and the Agricultural and
Meichauical societies, to reestablish
't'io South Carolina Military Academy
on a sure and growing foundation, and
to ong-raft upon it the features of an
agricultural and polytechnic sehool.
''uo apathy of our people is deplora
ble. But in the namo of sonic few
earnest men who griere over the de.
riorait ion of our education, and hate to
see our youth losing prido in their
State, in the naine of the orphan boys
of' our glorious dead rapidlly growing
up beyond the opportunity of being
assisted by a grateful peopie, we call
upon Colonel J. P. Thomas more par

Eight Thousand Dollars in One Nitlht.
The character of theit government
has ever influenced the oeharso and di
reot ion of the public thought of na.
tions, and the special attention being
given now to the material develop.
mont of the State springs from the
fact, that in that direction now lies thme
road to public honor and considera
tion with the best classes of our popu
lation. We are all in earnest about
It, and the subscription of over eight
thousand dollars for the next fair, on
the night of the third day of last
week's F~air, is a note-wyorthky event.
~Those who subscribed thmis money, are
'very pooa', and have shown their faith
by their works. Weo now feel assured
that material progress in South Care
lica has begun. The will Is manifest,
and will soon snake the way.

An Irish Land Commission.
Tenantry at the will .of the land
lord is the evil of which the Irish
peasantry have for many years com
plained, because it has over deprived
thorn, they perhaps justly allege, of a
just share of the produce of their la
bor. We can very well conceive it,
since we know that even in this coun
try land often rents for as much as
its cash value in the market, a fact as
singular as it is puzzling to him who
desires to find an intelligible reason
for it, yet a stern fact which proves
"there is something rotten in the
State of Denmark." To remedy the
present system of tenantry at will in
Ireland, John Bright has lately pro
posed a scheme, by which the govern
ment will purchase the estates of ab.
sentee land-lords, and rent them, at a
moderate rent, for a term of fifteen
years, with a prospoot held out of an
opportunity being afforded to the ten.
ant to purchase at the original cost
with incidental expenses added there
to. We have been struck with the
fact, that this is the South Carolina
,land-commission scheme precisely, the
only difference being . that land is
'plentiful and most easily rented or
purchased here, so that it is an unne
cessary, and in the condition of our
society, an expensive job, a mere land
speculation and political tub to the
whale, while in Ireland it has the ap
pearance of a practical measure to
meet an enormous evil.
A SENeJrn.s. IDEA.-Notwithstand
ing the bushels of nonsense which wo
man's rights conventions and "parlia.
ments" send out from time to time,
an occasional sensible idea emanatei
from them. The latest was that ex.
pressed by one of the ladies at the
'arliament meeting on Saturday, sug.
gosling that young women should be
educated to some useful busine
whereby they could earn an indep en
dent living, instead of devoting their
whole time to what they call domestic
duties and accomplishments. Thi
would be the true remedy for the
w wr of woman, and, if adopted;
reui . unnecessary the advocacy of
womn tu's rights agitators-female and
male. There are plenty of respeota.
ble and remunerative oocupations by
which young ladies, and adult ladies,
too, can make a good livelihood; bul
the trouble is that very few wome en
have fitted themselves to fill then
by a proper course of education. Tbc
limit of woman's usefulness in busi.
ness is not confined to the public
school on the sowing machine ; and yot
it is to these occupations that the3
mimostly look for a livelihood. Both
are laborious and are poorly paid.
The recommendation of the lady re.
ferrod to points to a great many more
branches of employment where wo
men ould be as useful and as well
p~aid as mnen,if they would only give
their attention in early life to learn,
ing some of these branches to proh

I ETnoc EssiONs or TEaniTonmY Fauoly
TuE Ursvrac.-The question of the
constitutionality of the retrocessmiotr
of Alexandria in 1846 to the State 01
Virginia is likely to comne up shortly
after the meeting of Congress in
niethod very little expected, and
should it be settled against the Old
D~ominion the question of the removal
of the capital will also be involved ii
such a way as to givo a quietus to th<
removers. It is said that a program
ine has been arranged to resist the ad
mission of Mackenzie, the lately elect
ed member from Alexandria, on th<
ground that he is not a constitutional.
ly elected representative. The mem,
hers who have arranged this plan wil
argue that Congress had no right, ii
18416, to dismember the District o
Columbia by the retrocession of Alex
andria ; that the attention of the eon
stitution was that the territory for th<
location of the capital onc havinj
boon fixed and accepted by Congress
not a foot of it could subsequen ty bo
-narted with without an amendment ol
the constitution. If Congress, on hav.
ing this point precipitated upon them,
should decide to deny Mack cnzie hm
seat, it will be something of a polni
gained for the people of the Dlistrioc
who oppose removal.

Not nmany weeks ago, a flatboat was
floating down the broad bosom of 4he
Father Of Waters. It was night, and'
all'on board save the pilot were wrap.
pod in slumber. Silence reigned un
broken for hours. But finally a faint
strain of musio reached the watchful
pilot's ear ; it grow louder, and a
cabin hove in view, through the open
door of which men and women were
seen flitting through mazy the dance.
The boat glided on, the figures disap
peared, and the sounds of music and
mirth died out. Meanwhile the stars
olimbed higher antd higher in the sky,
and another festive cabin succeeded,
and then another, and so on throughout
the livolong night. "Wall," ex
claimed the pilot, "this is the quer
est country 1 ever did see, where at
every house they have a fiddle and a
dance I" But when the day dawned,
and the pilot was enabled to rccog
nize landmarks, he found that all
night his boat had been floating in a
great circling eddy, and that he had
repeatedly passed the same house

IHEAvY ECnnTc AGAINST A RA!
ROAD COMPANY.-JJaltimoro, Nov. 10.
-In the Baltimore City Court, Chief
Justice Scott presiding, in the case of
Margaret Book and her four children
against the Northern Central Railroad,
for damages in causing the death of
Micheal Beck, husband and father of
the plaintiffs, the jury yesterday af
ternoon gave a verdict of $17,000
damages. The defendants moved for
a now trial. Beck was crushed and
killed between the cars of the defen
dants in September, 1868.
Mary E. Whalen, aged fifty years,
committed suicide yesterday, by hang
Ned 0' fallwin, the Irish giant who
was arrested wit h Joe \Vormald for prize
fighting in Lynnfield, Mass, in October,
1868, was aentenced yesterday to eigh
teen months, hard labor in the House of
Correction. O'Baldwin stated in his
defence that Wormall had dogged him
and assaulted him until be was bound to
light, lie appeared deeply afiicted over
tis sentence and said it was all up with
him now. Wormald eseaped some time
ago by givnig straw bail, his bondsman
being sent to jail for perjury.
Almost every person who uses har.
ness has been more or less anno, e I by
having them injured by rats. We give a
few hints as to how this may be avoided,
though every body knows or affects to
know, what is best. Thu receipts here
given are collected from different sources:
Take about a teni.poont ul of Cayenne
pepper, mix it thorontohly with a quart
of oil and rub the barntss thoroughly
with the mixture. This, it is chlinted,
not only keeps the rats and mice from
gnawing the harneess, but it will also
prevent hores and cults from chewing
the lines or halters.
It is a difficult task to suit every one.
The proposed revision of the leghalish
Prayer Book brings this fact ot pretty
prominently. Take the question of a
revision of the marriage service alone.
The Pall Mall Gaette says m substance
that some objuect to the phrases in it
(omitted from the A mericans version,)
which speak too plainly, and, -as soni.e
think, immnodestly, of the marriage
relatiotn. Others think that there should
be at least another form to be used in
the ease of personis to whom some of its
assumptionts (do not app)fly. Others find
it too religious, aind want the service to
recognizo mnarriage as a civil relation,
while others thiink that, as it stands, it is
not, religious enough.

It is decidedly the best Circus that
has visited this town. The audience in
the afternoon was largo-that at night
on account of the inclemency of the
weather was not so large. however,
they performed just as well as if the
canvass was filled to oveiflowing.
The acting was well done. IFine cos
We can say, without the slightest
hesitation, to our country and city
friends, that Stone and Murray's is
the best circus we over saw.
Was beautiful and bright, yet but
seventeen persons attendod the only
religious services (at the Episcopal
Church) that were held. We are in
elined to think that the time has past
when any civil ruler of any State or
of the Uinion should take any share
whatever in designating a day of
thanksgiving. In the Roman Catholio
Episcopal anid churches, it should be
designated by the Bisho.ps, and in oth
or religious denominations, by their
church authorities. In the present
stat-e of polities at the South, Govern
ors would do welt to take this hint.
But the suggestion applies equally to
the entire country. Partisan feeling
mingles -with everything that comes
from any politician whatever, an<1cer
taInly partisan feeling should be left
behind at the doors of our chures.
Let State and church, then, be still
miore entirely separ ated.

The Small Industries.
The change which has come over
the social condition of the South as a
consequence of the war of secession, is
in nothing more plainly manifested
than in the great attention now paid to
the smaller industries. Those are al
ways a great source of wealth to nations
when assiduously followed, and have
oeen one of the great causes of the
material success of the Northern U. S.
