CHARLESTON, FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 6, 1871.
EIGHT DOLLARS A YEAR
* EDUCATIONAL REFORM.
THE IMPROVEMENT OF OUR SYSTEM
OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
The University of South Carolina-So. 3
The right to tax for educational purposes
having now been Indicated, all citizens have
right to demand of Ihe State government that
the money shall no longer be squandered,
heretofore, to no purpose. They have a rig
to demand that less be attempted and more
performed; and that the really large and mu
niflcent appropriation made for education shall
prove a benefit to the people, and not the prey
of incompetent teachers and idle official",
during the last two years.
Let us begin at the head, the University
South Carolina. It is now a pitiable mendl
cant for students, instead of rejecting, with
impartial justice, every applicant for admission
Incompetent or unprepared to enter its en
closures, and thus lifting up the standard
education, and stimulating to their true mis?
sion the high schools ot the State. It is not an
honor uow to be admitted into the classic
walls of Alma Mater-babies will be accepted
If they come, and certificates of merit can be
expected by children, In the most lavish pro
fusion. The standard for admission and gradu
ation, (having been lowered under the in
fluence of the public men who carried the
State imo 'hf Charleston Democratic Conven
Aion, which caused the spilt that defeated
Douglas, elected Lincoln and brought on the
fBjaJgrar, and who, as cause or occasion, are re
sponsible for most of the mischiefs existing
continues ?ow and tends downward. At the
same time that the humanities are neglected
the grand name of university ls assumed, and
the institution professes to be able to turn out
first-rate doctors and lawyers. Neglecting its
true mission of directing and Hiting up the
high schools and academies, and of laying the
bases of a liberal culture of young men as men
and not tor any special calling, but for human
Life and for all callings, it parades Its medical
-school and its law-school before a sceptical
public, and claims great consideration for not
doing what it ought to do, and for doing what
lt ought not to have attempted. Political
causes, and the putting of colored men on the
board of trustees, and the fear of a mixture
of races among its students, may have excited
some distrust; but the South Carolina College
In changing Its name, has changed its nature
It has departed from its legitimate mission
.proven unialthtul lo the educational require
rp^nts of the State, been converted from a
good college into the worst university In the
entire land, and this ls the chief reason of Its
present most patent and signal failure. If lt
can command no more confidence and draw
no more support than at present, would it not
be a good thing to rent out Its tenements and
professors' houses, convert its recitation halls
into livery stables, and abandon the attempt
at higher State education altogether ?
The catalogue of 1871 is before me. The
long list of medical graduates numbers four,
and their graduation cost themselves four
hundred do Maxs apiece, and the State, In the
shape ol salaries to the medical faculty, house
^.oorn, ?c., over ten thousand dollars, or over
twenty-five hundred dollars each. Have the
people looked at this thing fairly? Twelve
thousand dollars to graduate four young doc?
tors; and how many lues lt will, in the course
of time; also cost, the day of judgment alone
can disclose. This same twelve thousand dol?
lars, over five-sixths of which was paid by the
State, could have educated, at medical Institu?
tions with better apparatus and facilities for
dissection, observation, ?fcc., twenty-four
young men, giving them live hundred each.
If we must pay for men to kill us acientiflcal
I ly, let us show common sense about lt. Let
Y the Legislature abolish the medical faculty of
% the university, or make lt dependent upon
its tuition fees, and appropriate five thous?
and dollars to pay for the education of the
young men in the killing art, at five hundred
dollars each, say in New York or Philadelphia,
anti they will do exactly more than twice as
; much as the medical faculty ot the South Caro?
lina University have done, at a cost ot twelve
thousand dollars, during the last two years.
And why keep the professorship of law ? The
professor of history and political economy
should surely find it in bis exact line to lecture
w as much on constitutional and State law M
there is any necessity for in a scheme of libe?
ral education. These branches of study are
not needed at present in our highest institu?
tion. The very name of University, with Its
shallow pretension, should be abandoned,
and the South Carolina College should
again address itself to the glorious
work of leading the education of the State.
Let five trustees, and five only,be elected, and
?o? a politician or colored man among them,
but such men as C. G. Memminger and George
S. Bryan, whose earnest zeal for the education
of our colored people ls ao well known that
the colored people wlil trust them. Let the
institution return for two years of the course
to a prescribed and compulsory curriculum,
and bring up the public high schools and pri?
vate academies to its standard, and let the
.^ptlor and senior classes alone pursue elective
?tudies. But this paper is already too long.
Beginning our examination at the head, we
find lt, as we shall find the whole body of the
state educational system, unsound and full of |
wounds and bruises and putrefying sores.

ALL ABOUT THE STATE
-There was a frost in Spartanburg on the
29th ult, which ls about ten days earlier than
-Murphy, shot some days ago at his store
at Lynchburg, is recovering from bis wounds,
the balls having been extracted.
-The gin-house, with six bales of cotton,
belonging to Mrs. Swittenburg, near Jalapa,
was burned to the ground on Monday after?
noon. Tbe gin was running at the time the
fire was discovered, and it is thought the fire
was caused by friction.
-A large meeting was held in Spartanburg
on Monday, In the Interest ot the contemplated

attended, and the deepest interest manifested
in the success ot the enterprise. The Spartan

TBE NEW MOSEY ORDER S TS TEM.
The British international money order sys?
tem, under the new convention, has already
gone Into operation. The maximum ls fixed
at ten pounds sterling, or fifty dollars, when
issued in this country.
The services of the postal money order sys?
tem between the two countries ls to be per?
formed exclusively through the agency of of?
fices of exchange. On the part of the ?nlte?
States the office ot exchange is In New York,
and on the part of the United Kingdom the
office is in London.
Until the two general postoffices shall con?
sent to an alteration, it is agreed that in all
matters of accounts relative to money orders
which shall result from the execution of the
present convention, the pound sterling ot
Great Britain shall be considered as equiva?
lent to $4 86 of the gold coin of the United
The lees for the issue of international pos?
tal orders are as follows: On orders not ex?
ceeding $10, twenty-five cents; over $10 and
not exceeding $20, hlty cents; over $20 and not
exceeding $30, seventy-five cents; over $30
and not exceeding $40, one dollar; over $40
and not exceeding $50, one dollar and twenty
five cents. No other currency than United
sutes or national bank notes can be received
Any person wishing to send money to Great
Britain or Ireland must go to the general post
office In this city, and fill up an application
stating the sum the order is required for, to?
gether with his own name and address and
that of the* person to whom it is to be sent.
The order is then sent to the postoffice at Lon?
don by the postmaster here, and from London
lt is sect ;'on her Majesty's service" free of
charge to the payee. IVo charge is made In
Great Britain. The payee receives his order
Irom London, goes to the nearest money-order
office and obtains the full amount. If more
than $50 are required to be sent, separate
forms must be taken out. Any person can
send any amount from $1 to $1000, If necessa?
ry, by paying the requisite premiums. The
orders are payable in Great Britain and Ire?
land, at every village, town or city, where
there is a money-order office and savings bank.
A THRILLING SITUATION.
An Unromantic Danger and Narrow
The Detroit Free Press of the 29th ult. des?
cribes an adventure by a German named Henry
Osster, of Nankin township, who, in hunting
a missing cow, got mired In apiece of marshy
ground. The narrative continues:
To his right, about ten feet away, was a
knoll of solid ground, on which grew a thorn
apple tree, one of the limbs extending almost
over the man's head, and about four feet be?
yond the reach ot his arms. Thinking that If
ne could get possession of his gun he might se?
cure the limb, Osster took of! his suspenders,
tied them together and made a noose on one
end, and alter careful and tedious wor'i las?
soed the rifle and dragged lt to him. luis was
alter he had been In the mire nearly too hours,
and quiten while after dark. He was Induced
to believe that he had not sunk any for the
last Itali hour, but the extra weight of the gun
as he held lt un sunk him nearly to his hips In
a moment, and he quickly laid it down.
Little tufts ot grass, growing up from spot.?
of solid ground not much larger than his hand,
were all around the man, but the moment be
took hold ot one of them lt would pull away
having no real support. Osster had a pipe
with him, and he got this from his coat and
twisted off the German silver ring around the
stem. The ring be broke between his teeth,
bent it up like a hook, and then fastened lt to
his suspenders, determined to make an effort
to reach the limb. Time after time he made
the throw, but the book failed to catch, or
slipped off or bent out straight, and at ten
o'clock at night the victim was up to his hips
and slowly settling. Placing his coat and vest
on either side, he pushed thym down with hts
bands, and in this way kept his body from set?
tling as fast as lt otherwise would. He ceased
trying to shout, knowing that he could not ex?
pect help before another day.
A? Osster did not return at dark, Starks
feared that he might have shot himself or met
with seme other accident, and walked a mile
or so la the direction irom which the man
was expected, and stopped within hall a mlle
of where he was sinking down to death. Re?
turning home, he agreed to make a further
search In the morning, and when the time
came got a neighbor to go with him. They
took a direction quite distant from where
Osster was to be found, and, to be brief,
searched the woods until nearly noon, ana
then determined to go to the hamlet and see
lt Osster had been there. In coming out
of the woods they passed within for?
ty rods of Osster, and were nearly
a ball a mile away when one of them fired
a shot at a squirrel on the fence. All night
long Osster had been slowly sinking, and when
the sun marked noon he was up to his should?
ers In the mire. Hearing the shot, he put
forth all his vocal strength Into one grand
shout, followed by another, and his voice wr >
heard and recognized. Even alter his Irlends
were within fifty feet ol him he had to shout
to ?rulde them, as his bead was below the
grass. It ls needless to say that they instantly
Bet about the work of rescuing him. Logs
-nd brush were plied into the swamp until
they could reach him. Finding that they
could not pull bim out by the arms, the mire
was scooped away from his body, and he was
literally pried out by a lever Inserted under

This government having asked the Czar to

acceded to this, wishing to show friendship to

has been inlormed by the Secretary of State
that if, when the visit is over, he shall not be
recalled, his passport will be sent to him; and
further, that the President will not receive
him unless accompanied by the Duke. Nor
will he at any time hold conversation with

KEW YORK, October 1.
When the Democratic State Convention
meets at Rochester, the proceedings of which
you will have by telegraph before this appears
in print, tbe issues of the campaign of 1871 in
New York will have been made up. It is per?
haps too early to speculate on the probable re?
sult in November, but. trom present appear?
ances, the Democrats will win even if Tam?
many makes trouble over its non-recognition.
Three sets of delegates go from this city, and
Tammany Bends one of them. It ls composed
equally of reputable persons and old party
hackB-tools of the ring. Neither Tweed, Con?
nolly nor Hall are numbered among the dele?
gates, but their well-known, faithful hench?
men are there.
The quarrel between the two Radical fac?
tions hos by no means abated. The Tribune
accepts the State ticket nominated by the
Conklingltes, but demands the bead ot Collec?
tor Murphy as the reward ol its acquiescence.
It is not improbable as the canvass waxes
warm thal Grant will listen to the demand
hopes of regaining the State to the Radicals
If the Radicals were harmoniously united they
could carry New York, but. as it ls, even the
Tammany exposures will not help them ma
Next week Hie elections take ulace in the
great Stales of Pennsylvania and Ohio. In the
latter the Democrats have virtually abandoned
the struggle for State officers. Colonel Mc
Cook withdrew from the stump several weeks
ago on the plea of ill-health, but, doubtless, he
aud bis political friends were satisfied that
was useless to waste their time. There ls a hope
o? carrying the Legislature and ol thus electing
an United Stales senator in place of John
Sherman. This hope is based on the pros
peet of carrying Cincinnati, in which the Ger
mans are terribly Incensed against the Radi
cala for enforcing the anti-lager beer-sellin
on-Suuday laws. The political complexion
the Legislature will be determined by the re
suit in that city.
From Pennsylvania, however, the advices
are ot the most cheering character. Hon
William A. Wallace, chairman of the Demo?
cratic State central committee, after a caretul
canvass of every township In the State, feels
Justified In pronouncing the election of Gen
eral McCandless by at least ten thousand ma
jority, with Democratic majorities in both
branches of the Legislature, thus partially io
Buring the defeat ot Senator Cameron for re
election. The Pennsylvania Democracy were
the first to lead off with, the so-called "new
departure" (anticipating Valiandigham by
couple of weeks,) and have been getting along
very harmoniously, making a great deal of
capital out of the Evans-Geary frauds, which
were unearthed Just about the right time. Be
sides that, the Democrats have been helpei
by the condition of affairs in Philadelphia
There is a Radical ring in possession of that
city quite as wicked and corrupt as the grand
Tweed-Connolly combination here, and they
have made very bad local nominations. The
respectable portion of the party are In open
Over in Massachusetts two conventions are
to meet, and fresh candidates for governor
will undoubtedly be put in the field. These
conventions will be held by the betrayed labor
reformers and prohibitionists. The rage of

The unconscionable rascal bad promised to

almost stunned them. At last they gave vent
to their (eellngB in such expressions as "con
temptlble coward/' political swindler" and
"traitor." They accuse him of "selling them
out." Wendell Phillips has reversed his opln

It is regarded os rather a significant circum
stance that Tweed is selling his real estate in
this city. He exchanged about $350,000 worth
of corner lots for so much hard cash last week
The threats of the citizens' committee to lnsti
tule suits against the ring masters to make
them disgorge a part of their plunder has
something to do with this appearance of the
"Boss" as a seller In the real estate market
Mayor Hall gave singular evidence yesterday
ot the soreness he feels over the attacks of the
press. A sofisation weekly paper published a
cut representing Hall ana his friends In the
striped uniform of the Sing-Sing gentry, and
suggested In the same connection that this
waa the style in which the people honed to
see the members of ihe ring eventually hab?
ited. Upon the appearance ot tbe obnoxious
sheet the mayor issued orders to the police lo
revoke the licenses of all newsvenders selling
it, on the ground that it was "obscene Utera
lure." The proprietors appear to be In ecsta

To-day was a red letter day in the church
annals ot'Brooklyn, (or Beecher reappeared IQ
his pulpit at the Plymouth Conventicle. The
theatre-I beg pardon-the church, was Jam
med willi au expectant audience, and at least
thirty newspaper reporters sat beneath the
sacred desk. Halfan hour before the orchea
tra betrau the overture, "standing-room'
could not be obtained within the edifice. Mr.
Beecher appeared on the platform, looking
Jolly and Tull oPhealth. He escaped his annual
catarrh this year by fleeing to Hie White
Mountains, and therefore returns to his
labors unimpaired by his customary battle
wilh the-demon. The season which begins so
auspiciously to-day, will no doubt prove re
muneialive. Mr. Beecher opened with a blast
against the Tammany ring, and preached quite
an effective political sermon.
Everything ls ready for the reception of the
Russian Imperial cub, who?e arrival may be
expected any lime within the next two weeks.
The most novel feature of the proposed festivi?
ties will be the yacht reception. The vessels
connected with the three great yacht clubs of
New York-over a hundred in number-and
probably a couple of hundred more private
yachts, will await the approach of the Russian
frigate in the lower bay and escort it to ihe
anchorage off the Battery. This will be one
of the rn'st brilliant sights ever witnessed in
our waters. General Shaler will have all the
militia out to escort the Grand Duke up Broad
way to his quarters at the Clarendon, and
there is to be a torchlight parade of the fire
department, a breaklast and races at Jerome
Park, a sall up the Hudson to West Point, and
a graud banquet al Delmonlco's. Our Imperial
ally in St. Petersburg is lo have, by this token,
evidence of our gratitude towards him lor
sympathizing with the North during the late
war between the States.
Ntblo's Garden is preparing (or a revival of
the "Black Crook," which ls to be done willi

-We have already reported the failure ot

to be verified. It appears that Vezln has de?
camped to Brazil in" one of the steamers from
New York. The deficiency ol' the company is
about $340,000. and several trusls have been
victimized lu large amounts. The greatest
po!^nt?fUle "abilities are owing to French

gentlemen, selected as the most entertaining,
'.AVLONA," -TEMPTATION," and "THE LOST
