National Education Not U11- "
The education of the people is ne- V
cessary to the perpetuity of constitu- ti
tional government ; hence it needs no ef
special grant whatever of power to 01
odueate, to authorize measures by ei
the general government for the educa. ti
tion of the people. Besides, it is b
time for Americans to begin to look d
upon the constitution of their country, U,
in the light of the progress of civili- se
zation and the necessities of fact z, as t<
capablo of expansion development i
and progress to suit emergencies, and i
not simply as nsterootyped and rigid a<
procrustean form. The wisdom of
our fathers may have been very pro.
found, for "they built far better than u
they knew," but all of their notions u
of justice and of law were not correct, 01
and to permit them, by a writtn I b
docunit, to clog the wheels of na- b
tional progzess, especially in a matter
so important as the enancipation of
the people from the bonds of ignor- t<
ance, would be to sacrifice the end of
good government to the means. ti
The Southern States are not going .,
to educate the poor whites and the
blacks during this generation, if left a
to themselves. They must Lo made
to do it, and must be assistcd in doing
it, for they need assistance. The only p,
saourity for permanent good order r<
aid progress in our society, is to pro- tc
mite universal education. The
Southern whites are unwilling to pay g
taxes for the purpose, but they will
lose much more in prosperity, if they t
do not. Tho national governmenth
alone can save them fronm their own
shortsighted economy in this matter.m
It has tremendous power, and ought i
to exerciso it. Ilow foolish is the
jealousy of the blacks that prevails I
l'hey can never rise to a level with ad
~he whites. Tfhey can never jostle i
~he whites out of their way, and a
'pread out, where the white man now Kt
aands. They can simply build up- fe
ward to heaven, as we all should try st
to build, and be willing to help them ;,
build, for there is ample room above al
us for all. No one is injured by his ha
neighbor becoming a more intelligent, ed
and( hence a more industrious, skill- di
ful and thrifty man. The time will Tj
soon como, too, when the blacks will f
be shorn of their shortlived political fr
power. imagine, then, their sullen
disoontent and their obsequious de- If
gradation and meanness, why, a ne-b
gro will be but a very dog, if they are ef
mot educated. Picture to yourselves
their filching and stealing, their pov
irty and wretchedness, their brutali
ies and their crimes. The condition y
>f the ancient criminal with a dead n
>ody chained around his waist, will be t
nuch to be envied in comparison withfo
ho demoralizing and terrible condi- ~
