ad 4 a,t the meeting of o10
C typSeb Commissioners gin 4
h?vo voted with 1."l
Radical ipongthegn, and against the
Domocrats, on4he question of asking (
aid for our free-schools frpm Congress. t
w Iiu weicome a appropr iation
of several, millipne ofollprs to the
Southern States for that purpose as .
}otg entuitabl,e gg diotate4 by ,gpod r
spohOy4l Fed6rAl armies have dopreis- i
od.owr ;asourcs and. crippled our im
mediato capacity for inaugurating the
Freo School system, which is the ne
cessary complement of free labor anI
free suffrage. Therefore Federal
Legislation and the Federal Ticasuiy
should furnish us with tho means of
education. And no matter by what
foolish conditions the grant migh5 to1
restricted, we should hail a% lurgo aud
liberal appropriation by the general
government for Southern Free scho.>ls
with uninitgled pleasure. it could
not but do us all great good.
As to State legislation, 'we approve 0
of what has been done by the party in
power upon the subject of free-schools,
and are certain that they will do very s
well, if let alone. 'Tihe Stato cannot I
afford to pay a million dollars more Y
of taxes per annum at present, and s
they have wisely, therefore, limited
the expenditure to about $200,000 y
per annum in all. But this we will
say, that, if the County School Com
mist-ioners were hereafter electel
from the Free-school teachers of each
County, it would become quite feasi
ble, even with that small appropria
tion, to have a very superior Free
school in each County town ; because
the two salaries would then comforta
bly support a superior teacher. We
will also say, that if one-fourth of the
aid which has been extended oy the
State to most abominablo jobs and
distionest purposes, as, for instance, to
the land commission, that most rotten
fraud, had been extended to State
education, it would have been a far
wiser expenditure of mouey,-a bur
don, it is true, but not, as at present,
an unmitigated curse.
Iow It Will Come.
Few who refleot upon the prover.
bial. indisposition of an Agricultural
f population to change, and espeoially
upon the peculiarly immovable char
actoristicsof the Planters and Farm
ers of the South, will believe in a rap.
id influx of immigrants. Yet immi- t
gration is certain, and will com, not
so much by the effurts now being
made to bring them about, as through
the certain action of material causes t
in the future. A larger cotton crop,
for instance, Is a certainty, and a fall
in price of cotton in consequence ;
which will awake attention to the ex
podioney of carrying the, mnanufactur,
ing process one step farther than sim
pyginning the cotton to the spinning
and weaving of it at a proilt of from
200,000,000 to 300,000,000 dollars.
T1hero is, too, more capital and too<
large a number of people engaged in
mn ehand ize at present in the South,
which rendcers it unprofitable for thoseI
who make money by it to enlarge
their business in that line. The fall
of cotton will prevent their going into
cotton-planting with it. W~hat then ?
They will buil factories .and foun
dries with it. All which will bring
in population, create demand for I
farms, raise the price of land, and
stimulate immigr-ation through the
irresistable prompting of self-intorcst.

The Only plausible pleafor a land
Lrant to build a Paciflo railway on the
30th parallel is that the North has re
eived two or three hundred millions
if acres for railways, including one
to tho ..P%oifi, and it would b9 unfair
to the South not 'to give her the same
advantage. - This plea will go a great
length toward continuing the outrage,
until the public dowain shall be en
tirely swall:owod up, gd the oontident
afford no refuge for the poor.
The trouble with our people is that
they do not look much beneath the
surface of the hour, and they take
but little account of the momentous
mortal considerations involved in any
policy that we are pursuing or propo
ing to pursue. Hence, the leAding
citizens of the southern and central
sections speak contemptuously, as it
in fact deserved, of those of the North
who, having gorged themselves with
land swindles, now oppose the sanie
advantages to a section in which they
are not personally interested. These
sharks do not oppose it from a high
moral standpoint. They merely echo
the objections of the more just-mind
ed in order to secure to themselves
more exclusiveness in their monopoly
An intelligent and candid estimate
of the question of continuing the land
grant policy would convince any one
that these grants will within a quar
ter of a century make nmanifest the
fact that they are an unmitigated
abuse, and the people without dis
tinction of clas: will curse then and
the authors of them.
To estimate the comparative results
to the two sections of the monopoly
policy of the North, and the policy of
securing nil the balance of the public
lands to actual nettlers only, we must
take into view the character of the
people and the society that will be
produced by the two policies. Sup
pose then that the land grant policies
be at onice stopped and no acre should
hereafter be allowed to any one who
will not personally occupy it, and no
one be allowed more than 160 acres
neither by the general government
nor the States themselves-what will
be the character of the people North
and South a quarter of a century
hence? Who will constitute the mass
of the people along the Northern half
of tihe Ropublic? They will be the
most ignoranit,the least njanly,the most
vicious, and the least civilized of our
whole population. Such only are the
pereons who will constitute the serfs
and servile elsses which monopoly
ainkes ubsolutely indispensible to its
support and for the aggiandisement of
the monopolists. Those also will own
the northern half of the Republic
who desire tihe servility of the three
fourths or more (of people --the more
tihe better for thetdh, ta they think
inl.nrdar tht.hy n4ay.flourish aLtie
expense of the manhood, the virtue
'id the independence of the masses
Judge of the character of such a so
ciety ; mean, miserable, merciless anO
Now reverse the picture. Who are
they that will settle the public do
main of the southern half of the Re
public under the now policy? The
charcter of the people in such sec
tions oif the country as have acciden
tally been settled on this pr-inciple,
in contrast writhi monopolized beotious,
tells the story, especially in sections
that have been settled some years.
The best of our workinmg classes wvill
settle the South under this policy.
Ilio whole country wvill be gleaned of
the superior class of young poor men
who aspire to independence. On the
contrary,- the opposite class will -be
drawni northward under the old and
maqnl/icenit policy. in respect , to
miorals and intelligence there will be
five hundred per cent, difference in
favor of the Sotith. In respect to
civilization, all travelers will rank
the North as semi-civilized as compar
ed with the South. in respect to the
grand aggregate of wealth there will
be two to onme in the South in propor
tion to the number of the poptilation.
In respet to numbers the e'outh will
tell the highest in the census. 13e
sides this they will have two Pacific
Now, gentlemen wise men of the
South, which do - you prefer ? The
new policy would be a "god-send" to
you, and it would be seen that the
monoply policy will have become the
Devil's curse to the North. No man
can deny the justice of these conclu
sions. While Rome acted on the
proposed policy-for four or five hun
dred years--she gave the world a his
tory that will continue to be the' ad
miration of all time. When she
adopted the monopoly policy she be
gan to degenerate, and corruption
seethed up in proportion to the in..
crease of her magnificence;/
The change of policy evoked for
her the doom that, made Behaazar
tremble. Macaulay described in his
Horatius the policy that made the
noble character :
"Their lands were fairly portioned,
Their spoils were fairly sold,

Two Brothers Taken f;om a Kantuok
Jail and Hanged.
The Louisville "Journal" of Tues
day says Our readers are familia
with the partiultrs of the blood
tragedy enacted last Tuesday a
Glasglow Junction, ninety-one mile
South of this city, on the Louisvill
and Nashville railroad, in which tw
estimable citizens, Walker R. Procto
and Samuel James were mortall
wounded, and H. C. Stacker danger
oqsly wounded, by two desporadoce
John and Levi Shy, whom they wer
endeavorimg to arrest in respoiie to
summons of the Shotiff. James die
at 1 o'clock Sunday morning.
The 8hys, after their capture, wer
placed in jail at Glasglow, ten tmile
distant trom Gla.glow Junctiol
There was a strong disposition t
lynch them at the time of their arresi
but wiser counsels prevailed. Th
desperate deed excited the greate.
indignation in the cor munity, an
Sunday when the death of James wa
announced, the excitement was in
tense. Yesterday morning some tim
after 12 o'clock, a party of abou
forty mounted men quietly enterei
the town of Glasglow, surrounded th
jail, forced open tihe door, and too]
the two Shys out. There was no on,
at the jail except the Jailor, ano
resistance was useless. They thei
forced open a store and got a piece o
rope, took the muiderers to the edg
of town and huig them on a tree
where they were found shortly afto
daylight 3esterday morning. T6
operations were conducted inothodi
cally, quickly and quietly. Indeed, s
little disturbance was created that bu
few of the cizens of the town knew an,
thing of the ai.ir until the bodies wer
found. After hanging the murderer
until they were dead, the crow(
quietly dispersed. Tho Shys wer
bold, bad men, and openly boastei
of having killed several inen ii
Tennessee, and had sworn to kill thos
who had aided in their arret.
There is a woman in Joliet with 1
few emphatic ideas on the topic
which agitate the bosoms of a portioi
of her s.x, and she talks in this way
'1I just don't believe in these new we
men notions. I raised six bos-fou
of them vote now, and the others wil
soon be old enough. Then I will hav
six votes. Now these good-for-nothiii
women who have fooled their timn
away, and never raised a single +oy
come arout.d and want every woman ti
vote for herself. I don't. believe ii
such nonsense. I hnve raised my si:
boyi, and am going to have every on
vote for me. Those women who g<
lectut ing around tlic country instea
of raising boys, have no business t<
vote anyway. And when they sU
that they are just as good as I anu
and have a right to vote thenmtelveF
ij thoy have no boys to do so fo
t,u0m, it is not true. If they are a
smart as I am, why don't they rais
some boys to vote for them? I tel
you I don't intend to be cheated ou
of my six votes by ariy such good-for
nothing folks. I guess that the woili
would come to a pretty pass, in
mighty short time, if the women tool
to goin' around lecturing on wimmii'
rights, instead of raising boys."
