1REPLY.-Our correspondent at.ke us
two questions, and as he evidently ex.
pects a reply, wo give it, to the best
of our abihajy.
In the first place, we cannot under.
stand what business a School Commis
aioner has with six hundred dollars'
worth of bookson hand, or even ten
dollars' worth. What has he to do
with school books any way ? Such
things are usually kept by merchants,
or stores engaged in that kind of trade
but we cannot conceive what a Sohool
Conimissioner has to do with them, as
an offioer. Tf ha keens them as a
source of profit, then we submit th.at
it it his own personal matter, and
something with which the State has
nothing to do at all. He might aa
well ask the State to furnish him with
a stable to keep his horse in (if he
has one), for the roason that he has to
use him to visit some of the schools
under his control. Let those who
want books go to the proper places
for them, and let the School Commis
sioner attend to his legitimate du
ties, if there are any. Keeping
schooL books Is certainly not one of
"Shatll h'e olosri oflice and follow
somne other calling to the damage of
the schools of his county ?" To this
we answer, that in about three-fourths
of the counties in the State-judging
fronm the commnunioations which reaoli
us from oficeors of this kind-we are
decidedly of the opinion, that they
had better close their offices and go to
plowing, or chiopping wood, or some
other congenial emplIoynient, for we
candidly believe the schools in such
counties could not possibly suffer any
damage by such a transfer.
How in the name of reason a school
co mmissioner can be kept busy with
seventy-five schools, with less than
twenty children to ech school, beats
our coinprehension, and why he should
bo provided by the State with an oflico
whore he could "receive reports from
teachers," also passes our understand
We are glad to be able to agreo
- with our correspondent upon one point
and that is, that "Commissioners
should be paid in proportion to what
they do."- Columbia Un ion,
Mark Twain writes the following
answer to a correspondent: "Young
Author-Yes, Aga'asis dhoes recom
mend anthors to eat fish, because the
phosphorus in it makes brains. So
far you aro correct. But I cannot
help you to a decision about the
amount you need to eat- -at least, niot
with certainty. If the specimen com
position you send is about your fair
usual average. I should judge that
perhaps a couple of whales would be
all you would want for the present.
Not the largest kind, but almply good
middling sized whales.''
"Ma," said an intelligent, thought
ful boy of nine, "I don't think Solo
mon was so rich as they say lie was."
"Why, my dear wvhat could have pal
that into your head ?" asked the as
tonished mother.-"Because the. Bi
ble says he slept with his fathers,
and I think if he been so rich he
would have a hed of his own."

Have we accounta of obligations
that were to b tmet at the end of the

we a borrowed book or umbrella in

% ith us it is expected that we all
settle accounts ut the end of the

things, in the meeting of an obliga

tile whole vow. "Pay thy debitv."

we be not thoughtful of every right

"'COMlNQ EVETs CAS-r TruF.lR H A n
ows REFORE."-Truly the ills of
our Congressmen do not come singly,
anid at long intervals. Hon. C. C.
llowenm, a Representatives in~ Congress
from this State, comes in for his due
share, which is the lion's shmare. A
few days since the telegra ph informed
us thlat this honorable gentleman had
been indicted by the grand jury of
Washington City for Bigamy, in that
he hlad a wife living in Louisville,
Ky., we believe, wvhen lie was married
to Mrs. King, in August last. Oni
Saturday Iast, another wife than the
Louisvlle one, whloso namie we believe
was Ta bitha Pakre, put, in an~ appear
atnco at Charleston, and petitioned the
court for alimnony, claiming that she
was the lawful wedded wife of C. C.
Biowen, hlaving been joined in nmatri
moniy on tile 8bit (lay of October,
1853, and that said mnarr-iage contract
had never been dissolved,.1This lady's
mnaidlen lnme was Franceis Hicks, as
shIown by tile marriage certificate,
which we have seen. -
'lhe stories of tile correspondents at
the Prussian headquarters are not
reassuring to the apprehensions of thle
stock exchange. One0 is that Moltke
has already preparedI a complete p.lan
for the invasion of England, and the
P'russian oflicers assure thmeir English
friends that its execution will not be
at all difficult. Around P'ai is the rieh
furniture of hundreds of' villas has
been burned to warm the soldiers.
"Nothing burns so well as piano wood."
At Versailles thley are eating all the
cows, and the destruction of every
young animal s soon ais born will
mnake famine in tihe future. At one
point we are told of fifty thousand
men sleeping in the op en air on a
frosty night, warming themselvyes from
time to time at huge fires of untllresh-t
ed wheat, which added their glow to
the fires of burning villages.
