FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 1, 1867.
DEATll OF J. D. B. DcBOW.
Our citizohs -will bo grieved to see tho announce?
ment, by telegraph, of tho death of the abovo named
distinguished Charlestonian. Mr. DEBOW was
born in this city about the year 1819; received hi8
elementary education chiefly at some of the free
schools of that day, and was for some time a clerk in
the wholesalo grocer}' house of Messrs. E. & J. B.
DELANO, well known at that day. By his own indus?
try and the assistance of Borne relatives ho was
enabled to enter the Ookosbury Institute, in Ab?
beville District, S. C., whore he prepared for col?
lege. Ho then returned to this city, and ontcrod
the College of Charleston, where he graduated in
the same class with the Hon. WM. POBCHER MILES
and the Hon. W. H. TRESCOT.
The next few years he spent in the study and
practice of the law in this city ; but being more in?
clined to literary pursuits-and especially every?
thing connected with statistic and economic sci?
ence_ho soon relinquished tho bar and com?
menced the publication of the Review, which has
been identified with Iiis name from that period to
tho close of his life.
In 1849 ho was appointed Superintendent of tho
wo have ever had in this country.
As editor of the Review be was ono of^the best
known, as he certainly was one of tho best inform?
ed, of cotemporary public writers in America.
He has been cut down in his prime ; at a time,
too, whon the country and State ho loved needed
his, wisdom and experience. In privato life be en?
joyed the friendship and esteem of all with whom
he came in contact, and tho announcement of his
untimely death brings a pang to many a heart,
already surcharged with public woes and private
griefs. m----^^--^^mmm '
SCHOOLS AND SCHOOLMASTERS..
That education is a boon, knowledgo desirable,
and even a littlo learning not a dangerous thing,
all tho world believes. But all the world is not
agreed as to tho best method of imparting this
privilege or.blessing. Some hold that the surest
way of educating tho masses is by addressing our?
selves to thom directly, establishing common
schools, sufficiently numerous, to reach all, and
thus dt least to impart tho rudiments of scienco to
the rising democracy of tho land.
Othors, and among them some of tho wisest and
most thoughtful of our'public mon, have all along
held that education cannot be forced, any more
than refinement of manners, and the various otbei
social graces, characteristic of a high state of civ?
ilization; and that, in order to ensure a real and
rbiding interest in the subject of education-a full
appreciation of its blessings-wo must first en?
gender and awaken a desire for it-a thirsting aftei
knowledgo-and that this can only be done effec?
tually by raising the standard of education among
tho upper classes. It was held, furthermore, bj
tho advocates of this view, that by increasing the
i faculties for tho attainment of a liberal education.
a number of competent teachers would be secured
i whose mero presence in the State would contribute
; much toward oreatiug an interest among the peo
t pie in favor of education. This, in the main, wai
, the opinion of Dr. THOBJTWEIX, SO ably advocated
L in his interesting paper on Common Schools, pub
t lished about ten years ago in the Southern Quar?
terly Review, and in his letter on this subject, ad
. dressed to Governor MAN?OSO. ----
. to reside exclusively either on the one side or th<
other. It is so, in our opinion, with tho two theo
. ries just stated. Each contains truth, but neithei
, is perfect, or altogether practicable, in the exist
, ing state of things. We . will speak of the las!
first. Tho objections to it are in tho fact, that bul
very few of the graduales of our colleges make
, teaching their profession in after life. Teaclrnf
. is a laborious pursuit, especially so when there is
. perhaps, no natural fitness, no training with thif
special object in view; no real apprenticeship oi
practice. Itis "taken np" generally tfll something
else presents that will "pay better." It is consid?
ered a "stepping stone? merely to something mar?
' congenial, less laborious, or more profitable. Thie
has been the rule to such an extent, that while il
is considered quite in order for a young gentleman
to teach a year or two after leaving college, his
friends are not pleased, if ho is contented to wield
the ferule beyond that time. Teaching is badly
paid; not, perhaps, as compared with other coun?
tries, ii the mere number of dollars aro taken into
consideration; but inadequately paid, when com?
pared with the reward of monta! and physical
exertion that awaits men in other walks of life;
men of the same natural endowments, and equal
or perhaps inferior scholastic culture.
Hence teaching has never attained to the dig?
nity of a profession in this part of the world ; nor
have teachers enjoyed the social recognition due
to so useful, honorable and intelligent a class.
There is no reason why the teacher of youth should
not have the same consideration that is readily
awarded to the clergyman, the lawyer and the
physician. His status is still in the formative
stage. It should be determined. His pay should
be equal to the average pay of members of the
"liberal" professions. With such inducements,
the community would then have a right to look for
a man of character, ability and fitness, to fill the
position. Until then we have little hope of the
reflex influence of the higher educational institu?
tions on the character or intelligence of the people
at large. . . .
? We think the first stated method,-that of free
or common schools,-preferable as a means of dis?
seminating the elements of knowledge. True, the
fi?d, and the system a^^t?d"t?~ Massachusetts
may be ont of place in South Carolina. We are of
those who think that systems of theology, philoso?
phy, or even school-teacliing, aro not like shoes
and hats, that may be manufactured in Lynn or
Albany to suit given "numbers," whenever a foot or
a head of the prescribed size may bo found, ihium
cuiq?e. If every man is a law to himself, certain?
ly every nation and every State has aright to claim
as much individuality; and could we read the pro-,
tests of the' native teachers Of China and Japan,
of Turkey, Algiers and Hindost?n,-we doubt not
we should hear objections very similar.to those we
hold ourselves. : The French, Dutch and English
traders, soldiers and teachers are doubtless aharp
er than tba aborigines .of those countries; and Eu?
ropean civilization to our eyes may appear prefer?
able, to the effete state of Asiatic''society. But
this, in our opinion, does not settle the question of
right and propriety in regard to forcing our sys?
tem upon them by a holy cn-usade. Chango is not
always progress. Mulato nomine de le fabidd
narralur. ?'. _
Much has been said nf 'the Prussian system of
education, and very often by persons who know
notting of it. This system now obtains all over
Europe, or very nearly so ; and its corner stone is
I in tho faot that the Minister of Public Abstraction,
j a mern bor of tb e Boyal Cabinet, is the head school?
master of tho State. Attendance at school is com?
pulsory. The school is aa muon an institution of
the State as is the Church. Teachers are carefully
trained, undergoing a preparation iii government
schools, for five or six years, during which time
they pass annual examinations, thus ridding tho
graining school every year of such as ara deemed
unfit for the carear they had catered upon. It is
only thus a competent body of school teachers,
can be secured: only thus thai a vivifying esyfrii

cognized as a liberal profession. Theteaeher

usually an assistant in some village schcol, . if
there he gives satisfaction .' fcTthe?people ?wh'ani he',

is slow. After some years ho becomes tho princi?
pa! of a common schcol; ho may then riso from a

positions in Bociety, with a very respectable salary.
He may even rise to be a "Master" in the "Semi?
But it novor entern his head to ab indon his pro- I
fession, and " tako up" this or that employment,
with a '.??cyr of bettering his condition. Indeed, if \
tho truth must bo told, bc is not altogether at f
liberty to do BO. In tho countries of tho old world,
a man cannot lay down one trade or profession and
tako up another as ho docs his coat or bis carpet.
To obtain "tho mastery*' in any pursuit, prepara?
tion is necessary and this fact has a strong tenden- j
cy to mako a man content with whatsoever con?
dition he finds himself in. He must either do that,
But is the Prussian system tho all-potent educa?
tor it is claimed to be ? There is an ancient
proverb saying that a Mercury could bo made of
every tree ; but there wero thoso who made bold to
sav, that a Mercury could not be made of every
tree. There is a homely old English proverb, cor?
roborativo of tho lattor positior, arid declaring
that a silk purse cannot be made :>ut of every kind
of material. The Prussian system is the best for
tho State, but takes little account of the individ?
ual ; in this respect resembling the Spartan train?
ing. Tho "apt" can learn, and have every facility
aflorded them for progress, the sluggard, and he
who is less gifted by nature, receives cuffs and
blows, but no other "aids' to reflection." Hence
wo not unfroquently meet, oven in Prussia, boys
and girls of seventeen or twenty, who can norther
read nor write, notwithstanding they had attended
school from the ages of six to thirteen, or from
seven to fourteen. However curious or even in?
credible such a statement may appear, it is strictly
But compulsory attendance at school has here?
tofore been hold at variance with the . Constitution
of the United States, and with the spirit of our in?
stitutions, and very properly so, we think. ' Liberty
of conscionco, perfect tolerance m all matters of
religion have ever boen held among the chief and
most characteristic privileges of American liberty,
and those would soon bo found incompatible with
a compulsory system of common school education.
H the State prescribes who shall teach the young
on Monday, it will soon extend this prerogative
and designate who shall teach them and their
ciders also on Sunday. If the State appoints
teachers of science and of tho arts, why not of
morals and religion ? The experience of every
country has proven this. ?
based upon the principles of our government, as
it was. They do not apply with the same force to
tho existing stato of things. We think it not un?
likely that after wo aro militarily and civilly recon?
structed, we shall bo put through a similar pro?
cess, morally and religiously, and bo taught tho
three B's by a gentleman nominated by the Presi?
dent of tho United States, and confirmed by the
Senate in Executive Session, Quien sabe ?
The PEABODT. FUND, it is suggested, should be
devoted exclusively to the education of teachers.
We fully approve such use of the donation. Our
educational wonts aro perhaps greater now than
they have boen for years, and our State is not in a
position to do much at presont. Assistance from
abroad is welcome therefore ; and it should be put
to the best uso ; and this we unhesitatingly say is
in tho cducatioa of teachers. Proper precautions
should perhaps bo takon, however, that the per?
sons educated for tho purpose, should carry out
the design, and make teaching their profession.

EVafnfyFafif.""1'"" ?* how "Mlgrim" is esteemed
? What great poet ever wrote his poem in prose ? or
where is there a good prose poem to be found ? Tho
Pilgrim's Progress indeed has been called one, and
undoubtedly Bunyan had a genius that tended to make
I him a poet, and ono of no mean order, and jet it was of as
ungenerous and low a sort as was compatible with so
lofty an affinity, and this was the reason why lt stood
I where it did. He had' a craving ofter beauty, but not
enough of it in himself to echo to its music."
[Leigh Hunt's "Imagination and Fancy."
" The author or Telemachus had a sense of tho beauti?
ful, but waa prevented by the ? cold and feeble spirit of
devotion' from giving it expression. He (Fenelon) was
not ono who, ir he had had a wife and children, would
I have run away from them as Bunyan's hero, did to
I get a place by himself in Heaven."-Ibid.
I ABSTRACT OF LECTURE.
I (1.) Defence of the hero of the Pilgrim's Progress.
(.'.) The Pilgrim's Progress os a prose poem.
I (3.) Bunyan's conception of the heroic character com
I pared with that of Homer.
I (4.) The Pilgrim's Progress as on allegory. Bunyan
I compared with Sponsor ; contrasted wita Milton ; his
I affinities with Shazfr^are.
I (5.) Bunyan as a writer of the English language His
I book the only instance of written speech.. .His doggrel
I verses not in constatent with his poetic endowments. His
I want of learning no misfortune to the literary world. .
I (6.) Bungan os man and Christian, the'hero of his own
allegory ; of whom, like Cowper and Coleridge, " we ask
I to be forgiven for praise." March 1

quality of the Sonne OB.:
Wrr.MTNaTON, N. C., 31st December, 1866.
Sm: I have been using your "Soline ??" for some
time in a night lamp, and find it the safest and most
economical burning fluid I have ever used. It gives a
steady and beautiful soft light, and I can say from expe?
rience that the article obtained from yon is not explosive,
but is perfectly safe in the hands of any one.
