claring that the amendment has been duly rati?
fied by three-fourths or all the States, ir this is
done.it will first be necessary to obtain au onlclal
statement of the date or the ratification by each
State from the StKtc Department. Republican
members say that bills will be at once Introduced,
by virtue of Ute power conferred on Congress by
thc second section or the amendments enforce
the provisions of the first. New Hampshire will
bc tho first State to hold an election under thc
amendment, but ia Connecticut it will have more
practical illustration, as the members from that
State estimate that it will add over a thousand
voters at thc April election."
Thc University of thc Son t li.
It has long been admitted by thinking men
at the South, to bc a material defeat ;jf our
domestic civilization, that we have uo
great intellectual centre which may serve
both as the expouent of Southern thought,
and as a nursery for thc cultivation and de?
velopment of the Southern mind. It may be
safely laid down as a rule, that where the
mental stimulus of a people is drawn from
sources outside of itself, where the edu?
cational impressions made upon the plastic
minds of its youth are foreign in their nature
to thc genius and spirit of the popular type,
it is impossible for that people to attaiu any
marked national individuality, or to com?
plete in any adequate manner its own pecu.
liar development. This proposition i3 too
plain to need" argument or illustration. It
would probably be impossible to over esti?
mate the influence of Oxford and Cambridge,
not only upon the Anglo-Saxon mind, but,
through it, upon the world; and the great
Northern colleges of the American Continent
have hada hardly less marked effect iu their
sphere. Now, more than at any previous
period in her history, the South needs pre.
cisely such an institution. The battle of
hands has been tried, and has fuiled to make
us an independent people; henceforth our
only reliance must be upon the battle
of mind and thought. And, in the long run,
that is the only victory worth haviug. Un?
less we can achieve our intellectual indepen?
dence, mere political freedom will avail
This necessity has been provided for by
thc establishment of tthe University of the
South. Originated by the foresight and pa?
triotism of thc late Bishop Polk, of Louisiana,
the young institution was ably fostered by
the watchful care of Bishops Otey and Elliott,
whose loved and honored names are in?
separably connected with its growing for?
tunes. It ls now under the immediate super?
vision of the Bishops of Mississippi and Ten?
nessee, and bas before it the most favorable
prospect? of achieving uti the vitally impor?
tant euds for which it was designed^ It is
admirably situated at Sewanee, Tennessee,
upon an elevated mountain plateau, with
complete railroad communication, and a
perfect climate. The number of pupils has
increased, in less than a year, from thirteen
to eighty-seven, and all that stands in the
way of its farther unlimited Increase is thc
want of means and accommodation for the.
The trustees aro now before the Southern
people asking for twenty-live thousand dol?
lars to complete their invaluable work, and
to place the future nursery of Southern
thought upon a sure and finn basis. Du?
ring the late visit of the Bishop of Tennessee
lo England, the University of Oxford gave a
most practical proof of its recognition of the
importance of thc enterprise, by presenting
thc infant ersity with four thousand
volumes of rare and valuable books towards
thc establishment of ita library; - nd a large
pecuniary contribution was also obtained
from England towards thc same end. Sure?
ly the people of the South will not be behind
strangers in such a matter. It is not over?
stating the case, to say that it is vitally im?
portant to thc futuro of the South that thc
mind of its youth should be withdrawn from
the baneful influences which pervade the
whole Northern system of education, and be
nurtured iu a more truly catholic and
oational school of thought. Again lei us
repeat that it is the only, as it is the surest,
way of accomplishing our true indepen?
dence. If thc South is ever to exert her le?
gitimate influence upon the spirit of tho age,
she must do it by perfecting her own in?
tellectual training, and by bringing to the
struggle a mind unhampered by New Eng?
land scepticism and superficiality, and bear?
ing the thorough impress of her own indivi?
Wo may say, flnallj'. that although the
University of thc South is under the nomi?
nal control of the Protestant Episcopal
Church, it is intended to exert no sectariau
nor proselyting influence upon its members.
Its spirit, like its aims, is catholic aud cos?
A Word to Congress.
Thc National Legislature has done much
to commend itself to thc Southern people, by
the evident earnestness with which it has
gone to work to purge itself of the miserable
dogs who have been trading in thc appoint?
ments, which, in virtue of their official sta?
tion, the law ha3 vested in their hands.
Now, let the investigation only bc thorough,
searching (as far, at least, as the senators
and representatives from the reconstructed
States are concerned,) general, and let lha
official guillotine fall without mercy or de?
lay upon the necks or all who may bc round
guilty, and Congress will, in one instauce,
at least have done its duty nobly to itself,
and dealt out justice to thc wronged and
shamefully misrepresented people of the
But let no single scouudrel be made the
solitary scapegoat for a score of bis equally
guilty fellows. Wbittenore and H?ge arj
not the only representatives from South
Carolina whom this investigation should
reach. There is, ut least, one oilier, an! he
will not bo far to seek. Nor need the State
official who, according to common report,
paid heavily fora cadetship, be difficult to
lind. Let the committee inquire aa to the
residence of the parents of each West Point
or Annapolis cadet appointed lately from
thc South, and thc result will give a clue to
venal doings of which they have so far heard
but thc begining.
The Cost of tho City Government.
The Committee of Ways and Means of thc
City Council estimate the expenditures of
the city for tho current year at 8771,000, in?
cluding $320,000 for interest on the city debt.
Last year thc expenditures were $417,748,
and if the city government keep within
bounds, and spend no more in each depart?
ment than is appropriated to that depart?
ment, the result will bc a saving of nearly
one hundred thousand dollars in current ex?
penditures, notwithstanding thc appropria?
tion of $6000 for thc Orphnnhouse of the
Sisters of Mercy and $5000 for the Old Folks'
Home. But the saving of one hundred thou
saud dollars-in estimates-is not all that can
be accomplished if the Mayor and Aldermen
are heartily in earnest in pushing on the
good work of retrenchment and reform.
Tho cost of thc Police department is set
down ut $70,000. This is at least $10,000
too much; for $60,009 should give a city of
this size a guard as strong and as efficient
as is required. Thc estimate for Streets is
$70,000, and for City Improvements $35,000,
making in all $105,000. This is far too
much, and public opinion points to about
$75,000 a?tbe proper figure for streets and
improvements for twelve months. And we
believe that this amount, carefully and hon?
estly spent,-will give the city all the mending,
repairing and new work which arc indis?
pensable for the convenience of thc mercan?
tile and general public- Then, it is pro?
posed to spend $30,000 on the Health de?
partment. Thi3, although less than the
last year's expense, is far too high. For
this department $20,000 should bemad ?to
Throwing these figures together, it will be
seen that the City Council can make their
already low estimates at least $50,000 low?
er, and this is about equal to a tax of one
fourth of one per cent, upon the value of all
the mal estate in the city. This is surely
worth saving. What says the City Council ?
THE New York Commercial and Ft'nan
oial Journal, of Saturday last, republishes
the main points made in the report of the
South Caroliua Railroad Company, and
concludes its comments by saying: "This
"paper briefly, but explicitly, expresses the
"financial condition of the company at thc
"close of the year, and when the heavy loss
"es, and still heaver obligations they have
