Broadway, in New York city.
-It ls stated that In the villages of New Eng?

-Disraeli's new novel, "Lothair," ls to be pub
Ushed In this country by the Appletons. It ls
said to treat of the political and social questions
of the day.
-A native Hindoo reformer ls creating a sensa?
tion In London, by denouncing idol worship and
preaching in support of the slugle deity theory,
but without embracing Christianity.
-Mrs. Lynch, who was captured with the Lo?
pez family, ls said to be a beautiful French wo?
man, who acquired considerable wealth and re?
nown in Paraguay, and whose husband was aa
oil cor ia the English navy.
-The government of Porto Rico has levied an
Important tax of twenty-five cents per copy on
all newspapers from the United States. Compe?
tition is therefore very effectually prohibited,
and the Porto Rico Journals win nourish.
-General Bragg has been removed by the New
Orleans authorities from the office or controller or
the water-works or that city, and a few days ago
he turned over to his successor, a mulatto, public
property to the value of two millions or dollars.
-The Toledo Blade says that recently there ar?
rived in that city, In & freight train on the Wabash

each car 125 barrels, oc875 barrels in all. Allowing
120 dozen eggs In each barrel, there were 1,280,
000 eggs on board that train.
-A Key West special contains the following
news from Havana: 1 Count Valmaseda and the

ders from the Captain-General and from Madrid. 1
The Governor of Castle Cubanos, also declines to 1

ored to take possession of the fortress yesterday.
The Spaniards have been routed by the Insurgents

the Cinco Tillas district ls Immense. The Cap?
tain-General was expected to return to Havana

-The records or births, deaths and marriages in
Massachusetts during the past year develop some
curious facts. A comparison between the mar- '
rlages of American and foreign-born persons In
the State, and the births la the families of the
sam1 extraction, show that while there were ;
twice as many "American" as "foreign" marria?
ges, there were more children bora of the latter '
parentage than of the former. In Boston, the '
two classes of marriages were about equal lu l
?amber; but the births or foreign were as 7 to 3 ?
of American pat ?ntage.
-The reported ' interview" with General George
E. Pickett and the reporter of the New York Sun, 1
turns out, as most of the reported "interviews,"
to be untrue. The General, in a letter, says that
the fellow was either imposed upon by some one ?
who passed himself off aa General Pickett, or
else made up the story out or whole cloth; nor
baa the General gone to Egypt as was stated, but 1
Ison his way back to Richmond, not having a
desire to quit his native State, while he can find
a home within her borders, which lt ls hoped she
win always be able to afford him and all her gal?
-A New York letter or Monday last says: "The
steamship City of Brooklyn, from Liverpool, this
afternoon, brings twelve hondred and twenty
nine passengers. The succeeding steamers of the
same line are said to have like numbers engaged
for four or five weeks ahead. Since Wednesday
last, the arrivals at Castle Garden have been be?
tween eight and nine thousand. It ls gratifying
to have a semi-official assurance that these new
comers, as a general rule, have a larger share of
this world's goods than usually falls to their lot.
A large proportion of those brought by the City
of Brooklyn are English and Scotch, who are
going to Virginia as farmers.
-A singular incident took place at the last re?
view by the Emperor Napoleon in Paris. Just
when the Emperor had reached the last rank or
the troops, an indlvidnal In rag3 rushed forward
in front of the gate, and vocirerated loudly in a
threatening tone, "A Cayenne.' a Cayenne I"
He was Immediately apprehended and taken to
the nearest police office. Upon being searched
1100 francs were found in an old leather purse in
one of his pockets, an inscription of Rente to au
amount of 30,000 francs, and a knife poniard. A
perquisition made at bis residence led to thc dis?
covery of a large store or arms of all sorts, and
of a Bum or 60,090 francs in gold. Being asked as
to his motive for insulting the Emperor, he re?
plied that his patriotic heart revolted at the ac?
clamations or the multitude.
-Some rich developments are likely to be dis?
closed In the Wood-Howard Freedmen's Bureau
Investigation befare Its close. The witnesses ex?
amined thus iar, according to their own state?
ments, have given testimony which is anything
but favorable to Howard. It ls not denied that
he, as commissioner or this ornamental ratber
than practicable piece or government furniture,
disposed of millions upon millions or the public
money. The prosecution think they have clearly
shown that he was largely Interested In
the manufacture of the patent brick out
or which the Howard University is constructed;
that the money far these brick was paid out or
the Bureau funds and put Into the pockets or
General Howard and his associates. It is
also apparent that at the expense of the Bu?
reau he erected a private residence upon the
ground purchased for the University. Builders
and architects have testified to the fact that the
material known as the patent brick, out of which
the university building was constructed, ls .worth?
less Cor building purposes, and that it would not
answer for private dwellings, much less for a large
public building. It was also developed in the exam?
ination yesterday that the general had given ten
thousand dollars' worth of church bouds to a
private colored school in Richmond, which school
had no connection whatever with the Freedmen"s
Bureau, and which bonds had no marketable
value, but represented real money which be?
longed to the bureau. lt rs said the prosecution
has evidence of a si ill more damaging character,
which they will produce in due time. Howard's
friends are making a desperate effort to exonerate
him. How successful lt will bc remains for the
future, as the investigation will last for some
The College aad the University.
Considerable attention and remark have
been excited by the Baptist Educational Con?
vention which has just had its session in
Brooklyn, and in particular by Dr. Ander?
son's paper on the Modem University, which
the secular press has published in full. This
address displays the widest and nolJest
range of scholarship.
Dr. Anderson contends that the peculiari?
ties of our higher system of education, as
distinguished from that of England and Ger?
many, are so rooted in the history, expres?
sive of the spirit demanded by the cir?
cumstances of American life, that a radical
change is not to^be expected or desired.
Upon the American plan lie would, howerer,
engraft the system of fellowships from Oxford
and Cambridge, and of the lectures upon
literature, history and the like, in connection
with professional studies, as in the great con?
tinental universities. With us, the first three
years of college drill represent, in a feeble
wa}r, indeed, the splendid discipline of the
German gymnasium ; the last year the am?
pler scope of the university.
The lecturer, in the course of his remarks,
elaborately criticised the sophisms which
Mr. Lowe has urged against the collegiate
system. To the objection of that gentla
mau that, now-a-days, things should be
taught rather than words, the reply is that
any science is acquired and held in posses?
sion only by a mastery of its terminology;
that philology is itself the most magnificent
of the sciences, and that the words of every
language embalm the thought and life oj the
people who have used it. To the objection
that things practical, not speculative, ought
to be taught, the reply is that whatever most
powerfully influences practical life, controls
nature, perfects laws and shapes the charac?
ters and the?ii3tory of men, comes from the
region of ideas. To the objection that the
educator must leach truth rather than false?
hood, ihe reply is, that truth is never ade?
quately appreciated except when viewed in
contrast with its opposing errors, and that
some of the most instructive monuments of the
social and political li''e of nations, are preserv?
ed in their ballads, legends and mythologies.
To the objection that a'knowledge of the
the present is better than a knowledge of
the past, ^the reply is, that the two cannot
be separated, for the origin, history and laws
of growth of the present must be found in
the past. And oftentimes, as the lecturer
might have added, the past anticipates the
present, as the struggling Greek republics of
Thucydides throw light upon the recent civil
contest in which the provincial wars of
Athens and Sparta were renewed upon the
battle-fields of a continent.
According to Dr. Anderson, the "college
curriculum should bo completed at the age
of twentj'-one; the university course should
not extend beyond the age of twenty-five.
But whether his programme can be embraced
within these limits may, perhaps, admit of
doubt. Forhe advocates the introduction
ot the scholastic Latin into which Christian
thought introduced so many new words and
idioms, and of the Anglo-Saxon aad Norman
French, among the ancieut lunguages; and
the addition of various modern languages
with their etymological connections, the
English, of course, having the first place,
as a necessary part of the collegiate instruc?
tion. He would have more attention paid
to Christian literature and to art culture,
with illustrations of casts and photographs, j
But the physical sciences, to which so much
importance is now attached, he would prefer
to have taught in their general principles,
without overburdening the memory with de?
tails which the material investigations of the
tige are multiplying so rapidly as to put them
beyond the grasp of the non-professional
student. We do not altogether coincide with
the lecturer in this conclusion; but we can?
not withhold our admiration for tho schol?
arly enthusiasm and fertility of argtinietti 1
and illustration with which he maintains bid
In conclusion. Dr. Anderson justly insists
that the best men tn the country should be
its educators. The book or the course is less
important than the instructor. No expense
should be spared to secure competent teach?
ers. It is wrong that a professor t>! the high?
est reputation should receive a smaller sal?
ary than a confidential clerk. With us, the
university depends, for its support, upon the
voluntary principle, and the only condition
upon which we can enjoy that high intellec?
tual, moral and professional education for
which the President of Rochester pleads, is
the ample endowment of such institutions.
There is no nobler use of wealth, whether ita
favored possessor aspires to preseut useful?
ness or enduring fame. The point ?3 so well
taken that we can but wonder at the oppo?
sition to it by a thoughtful contemporary,
the World, which contends that to pay
teachers well is to injure the cause of educa?
tion. It may be that, in this ca3e, persons
who are not qualified for teachers will aspire
to the emoluments of the office; but will not
the same principle apply to every other pro?
fession as well ? Surely our critic forgets
that the editor is also an educator, as well
as the student whose face thins and blanches
iu the rays of the midnight lamp.
Dana to Meet his Match.
We are heartily glad to anuounce that
John Russell Young, the ablest and most
brilliant of the rising journalists of the day,
is about lo start a daily morning newspaper,
to be called The Neve York Standard. The
new venture, we are told, is amply backed
by "cash, brains and experience;" and we
are much mistaken if Mr. Young does not
make things lively for his merciless and ma?
lignant persecutor, Dana, of The Sun, whom
he will now bc able to meet on something
like equal ground. The very notoriety which
Dana's abuse has given to h?3 accomplished
adversary, will help to make The Standard
aa assured success from the outset.
On? More Unfortunate!
The sprightly Winnsboro' ^eicssays: "We
"are singularly constituted in not immedi
"ately accepting the merely plausible view
"of almost any subject, and have found our?
selves iu a minority of one iu approving of
"what our contemporaries have unanimously
dubbed 'the infamous coin-bill,' in protest?
ing against the State press, in the matter
"of University and State education gene?
rally, not being satisfied, and not letting
"well enough alone; and now, in pronounc?
ing the law exempting manufacturers from
"taxation for live years the very worst law
"of thc last session, and a very Pandora's
"box of infinite corruption and evil, we be
"lieve that we stand alone. If manufactures
"cannot grow up spontaneously and profita
"bly in South Carolina, artificial props and
"aids will not assist in their healthy devel?
opment, any more than stimulants and too
"high a diet will contribute to the vigorous
"growth of childhood."
It is so pleasant for THE CHARLESTON
NEWS to be thoroughly in acconl with the
Winnsboro' News, that we are tempted to
remind the sage of Fairfield that this is a
Freo Trade paper, which argues that South
Carolina can become a manufacturing State,
for the simple reason?that yarns can be made
here more cheaply than iu Lowell or Lan?
cashire. The exemption of manufactures
from taxation is direct Protection to the ex?
tent of the tax which is remitted, and is, in
tho same degree, a tax on the whole people
for the benefit of a few manufacturera. In
this matter, the Winnsboro' ?vetos docs net
stand alone. _____
TUE Union Times shows that the present
cost of the State Constabulary system is
$31,500 a year, including the salary of Chief
Constable Hubbard. This large amount is
paid by the whole Slate, the counties which
have no resident State Constables paying
for those which, in this particular, are more
favored, if less blessed.
MR JAME? T. WELSMAN, of this city, has
been elected by the Board .of Directors the
Treasurer of the South Carolina Railroad
Company. Mr. Welsmau is a gentleman of
large mercantile awl commercial experience,
and will strengthen materially the manage?
ment of the company.
The Union Times promises that it will
soon be one of the most valuable and inter?
esting papers in the country. We can very
well believe it. The Times is at this mo?
ment a flourishing journal, and i3 gaining
every day in strength and worth.
