!?Ir. Peabody's Gift.
The Richmond Dispatch, is not
very highly elated as to tho probable
benefits the South will receive from
this noble contribution for education.
What can wc say of Mr. Peabody's
munificent gift for promoting educa?
tion in the more destitute portions of
tho Southern States? It is a large
donation, and education is a very
good thing. Neither is it to be de?
nied that some parts of our Southern
country are so impoverished that
children can scarcely be supplied with
food, to say nothing of schooling. It
is quite true, also, that tho people in
the Southern States have need, like
Massachusetts, of more and sounder
education than they have. But with?
out saying a word to disparage the
liberal donor, or to depreciate his
immense gift, it may be permitted,
perhaps, to question whether this
endowment, and the action of these
trustees, will altogether answer the
intentions and wishes of the worthy
Mr. Peabody. The trustees he has
named, are, in a great majority,
Northern men; and it is provided
that on the death or resignation of
any of them, they shall elect another,
"having in view equality of repre?
sentation as far as regards the North?
ern and Southern States"-that is,
such proportions as he has himself
adopted in his first appointment.
Certainly Mr. Peabody had a right
to keep all this money in his own
safe; and if he wished to give it
away, he alone had the right to dic?
tate how it should be used. He
might have vested in Wendell Phil?
lips or Horace Greeley the right to
appoint all his school teachers and
professors, and compile all his school
And this is substantially what he
has done. Thia is a fund for bring?
ing up children at the South as Yan?
kees; and the teachers placed over
them, and the school books prepared
for them, must necessarily be such as
to make them abhor the principles
and denounce the actions of their
own fathers. It is also observable
that the generous founder ol' this in?
stitution provides that its benefits are
to be "equally distributed to all,
without other distinction than their
needs." And this, of course, is per?
fectly right. But probably Mr. Pea?
body knows-certainly his trustees
know-that in these Southern States
white children and black never attend
the same school together. Practi?
cally, then, this endowment is a fund
for the education of negroes; and so
let it be. They certainly have great
need of some teaching if they are
ever again to become an useful ele?
ment in our population. They will
have the entire benefit of this fiue
endowment, aud we heartily wish
they may derive much benefit from
it. If they really rise by this moans
to the rank of intelligent and respon?
sible citizens, they will surely have ?
reason for generations to come to
bless the name of Peabody.
The Savannah News says the plant?
ers in Southern and South-western
Georgia have adopted the plan of di?
versifying the crops, regretting that
they devoted so much attention to
cotton last year. They have come to
the conclusion that they cannot raise
cotton to the exclusion of breadstuff's
and sell it at thirty or thirty-five
cents a pound, when they work freed?
men, aud pay twenty-five cents a
pound for bacon, Si.50 a bushel for
corn, when flour is SIG and &19 a
barrel, and when every necessary
article is at equally high rates. They
believe that the only help for the
present terribly depressed condition
is to be found in raising as much as
possible of the necessaries of life
thus not only saving expenses, but
contributing to the general prosperi?
ty of the country. Plenty of food is
the first condition of improved times
at the South. ... .^..^

Thc following appears in the Lou?

LotrxsvrxjoE HOTEL, February 0. |
Tb the Editors of the Louisville Jour- j
Permit me, in all kindness, to make
a correction. Your correspondent at
Frankfort, writing * from that very
pleasant city ander date of the 5th
instant, in a kind notice of my mixed
'up lecture for a worthy object, in that i
"Brick lectures for the benefit of tho
Southern poor, and his agent takes
subscriptions for the LaCrossc Demo?
crat. lu fact, Brick has business
talents," &c, <vc.
The inference is, that, like some
politicians, I am "wafting"' on two
horses. Tho letter is correct in all j
save this: My agent did not take
subscriptions in Frankfort.
I have no agent with me, and have
not had on this or any other trip.
Instead of taking subscribers for my
paper, let me add that I never, in
my life, asked a man to do so-took
nono in Frankfort, but on being of?
fered subscription money there de?
clined taking it, and referred people \
to the post office aa a means to reach
the Democrat office with their orders.
I do not know how many friends
were acting as agents, but such acts
were without my knowledge. Thc
inference of your correspondent
would place me in ibo category of
New Fngland benevolence, which
seeks self moro than others, and I
am not doing business that way. My
trip South is to learn the wants, sen?
timents and sufferings of that deso?
lated country, and my lectures, by
the way, are to help her suffering
poor. If it was to benefit myself, I
should lecture on my own account,
or remain at home attending to a bu?
siness which demands all my time.
Presuming that your correspondent
was misinformed, or misinferred, and
with kindest wishes for him and yon
as the editor of the paper which first
gave me my sobriquet I am truly
and fraternallv thine.

GKN. R. E. LEK FOE GOVERNOR OP
VIRGINIA.-We have never seen it an?
nounced, says the Richmond Eva
miner, that General Lee would refuse
to serve, if elected to the office of
Governor of Virginia. Wo., do not
believe that, if the people, who honor
and revere him as their ancestors did
Washington, were to ask him to re?
store to our highest Executive office
the dignity, honor, importance and
respect which it inspired when Jef?
ferson, Henry, and other great men
of that rank, were our Governors,
that he would deny them the priceless
blessing of his great executive abili?
ties. And there never -was a period
in our history whee, Virginia stood
more in need of this great man's ser?
vices than now. Before the people
of Virginia bestow a moment's atten?
tion upon the pretensions of any
other prominent man, let the fact be
distinctly understood, that even if
elected by a spontaneous, irrepressi?
ble outbreak of popular will, General
Lee will not accept the office of Go?
vernor of Virginia. No one asks that
man si? Illustrious and so enshrined
in the affections of avery mau, wo?
man and child in Virginia as General
Lee, shall declare himself a candi?
date. In the name of the people of
Virginia, (before we notice the
"claims" of others,) we ask, will
Robert Edmund Lee accept the grate?
ful homage of the unanimous support
of Virginia, and, by becoming our !
Governor, recall the grand memories
of tho days of Henry and Jefferson?
There was a time, when his splen?
did genius had hur'ed army after
army of Federal invaders, broken,
defeated and demoralized, from the
soil of his mather State, and when
our success seemed assured, that ru?
mor attributed to this great man the
modest admission, "that he craved
no higher honor than to be the Go?
vernor of Virginia."
Until he speaks, we trust that no
inferior man will dare to outrage
public opinion in Virjfrhia by ven?
turing to solicit au office, which Lee
may not feel authorized to decline.

READ THE CERTIFICATE OP
REV. R. T. FLVUIN-To Br. BTos
letti r-DEAR Sin: This is to certify that I 1
was taken with tho dyspepsia a year ago
last March, and. for a period of eight
months, was one of thc most miserable
creatures you ever beheld, not being able
either to eat, drink or sleep, and was com?
pelled to walk the floor incessantly. I was
nearly deprived of my reason, and hope
had entirely left me, all the efforts made
for my recovery having proved fruitless.
By thc first of November, 1865, I had
become so weak arid feeble that I could
scarcely stand alone, and, to all appear?
ance, would soon die. At this time, (hav?
ing read your advertisement,) my wife
prevailed upon me to try your Ritters. A
bottle was procured, and, strange to say,
I soon commenced recovering. I have
taken four bottles, and am enjoying as
good health now as could be expected for
ono of my agc, (about sixty years.) I
nave no doubt that it was your Bitters
alone, under- Divine Providence, that
effected elna wonderful euro.
