Pab? o opiui?Q in Cms S tato does* not
appear to be. any longer . divided upon
the importance of''the subjects of educa?
tion, manufactures, .'and immigration.
?Indeed, it cannot be over-ostimated.
from this quarter mast oome relief from
tho oppressive and multiform evils which
weigh us down. The key to it is popu?
lar enlightenment, improved moral tone,
diversified-, industry,! and thrifty ml
tooming population. Wide spread iguo
ranoe Isi bad enough in itself, but nni*
versal 'suffrage baa made it pernicious.
The first great educational duty, Iben, is
to diffaso knowledge ?s 'widely, and make
it*'S?? thorojis$L. is "possible^ W^jare
?pl^jed ? to1; lie liblB to recognize some
groping in this direction of tbe B?publi
? -can party. ' It'rightly judges that tbe
foundations upon which it rests are inse?
cure, and, wo would fain hopo, that it
sees with similar clearness, that they ate
equally unfit as supports of the publi?
institutions and the public liberties. It^
is working ita way ?iidly, through many"
?obstacles-, and by Buoh remedial measures
as arO at ita pummaud, ^from tho dnrkhesa
in which it had its birth. It has dona
well, tint it hag planned more wisely than
it. has executed. The system of free
pribh'6 schools which it has endeavored
to establish here, was jast the thing
needed*.5,r It was never fully practicable
before the advent of tho republican party
to . power, because j of the sparse
n?ss,. of... the population, and the suf
floionoy of other schools then in existence.
Iu carrying out this system, it bus been
baulked t?y ignorunoc, incornpotonoy and
fr^du'ient pe|t?T?i?p of the funds. The
Superintendent of Education has worked
faithfully, we believe, but tho .founda?
tions aro hardly laid yet. Publie inte?
rest is not awake to the greatness of the
undertaking. Sohopls languish, the
Btfrie BoargJpf' Education is not" con?
cerned enough to hold their annual meet?
ings, teachers are unpaid, fit men de?
cline the positions of teachers, and we
have only the travesty and mockery of
education. The pain trouble in this,
as in other branches of the public ner
- vice, has been to introduce conscience
and somefsense of moral responsibly
into itlr* wording*. But we hhall Ijjfepe
better things hereafter. We inoline to
-believe that a stricter accountability will,
in the future, be required of those
. oharged with this stewardship, The
?conservative interest desires to strength?
en the hands of tho aaoro intelligent Re?
publicans, ill providing ways* and means
of carrying on the public schools. So
far as publio institutions go, the State is
now well provided with them. And to
these will soon be added another?the
State Nprmal School. Faithful adminis?
tration, of the trusts, honest haudling of
the funds, good and earnest teachers,
abreast With the progress of the times,
and active with energy and enthusiasm,
are now the difficult, conditions to fill.
Manufactures wilt spring up in no great
while. Capital and labor will son tho
advantages of the invitation which we
are about sending out to them. The
obief difficulty iu the way of a new
awakening will' have been overcome
when the bill, which proposes to refund
tax on capital employed in manufactures
for a term of years, his boeomo a law of
the land. Accessions to population will
oomo.in the train of manufacturing capi?
tal, iu connection with busy looms and
whirling spindles. Farmers from abroad
will next learn the value of our lands
and climate, the ?uffioienoy of our rail?
road Hues and river navigation, and tarn
their steps in.this direction. Why should
foreigners prefer the bleak and frozen
regions of the North-west to this balmy
land of ours? The a coo ants of loss of
life there, recently, to the number of
hundreds, from the severity and sudden?
ness of snow storms, are terrible and ap?
palling. Here we can grow almost any
crop, and two in a year. Oar lands may
be bought at? moderate prices; our
streams are never impeded by ice; our
mills Can bo operated every day in the
year; fuel is abundant; cattle can winter,
without other food, upon the grassesaud
cane of our swamps; and markets are of
easy access. Besides produots of tho
soil, water powers, soft climato, railroads
and timber, wo have in our upper coun?
try rioh gold, iron and copper mines, and
limestone in abundauce; and on our
coast, tho finost and most extensive phos?
phate deposits in tho world. Think of
such a country having but twenty inha?
bitants to the Bqaaro mile! We sadly
need population, varied industries and
new developments. And all these blossed
improvements will saroly come, if we be
but wise, and offer proper inducements.
The produotive industry of each good
emigrant averages $1,030, and his influ?
ence will be promptly felt in inoreased
agricultural productions, in bridge, road
jaad ?ilyad building, mmi ia e???oti ol
Bohools, ob a rohen and other humanizing
and refining institutions.

Tub Sak Domingo Lntkiouk.?The;
ohronioler of the San Domingo expedi-1
tion describes the island as a land where
all tho frnits and flowers of the tropios
unite in dazzling profusion in the lap of
perpetual summer. Bat it is shrewdly
saspeotod that in this Eden of the West
Todies lurks a serpent, whioU is already
on the ufert to strike the intruder with
its fangs. Tho American'company whioh
.recently leased Samana Bay from Baez
is seemingly a very innocent affair; but
! despatches lately reoeived from the West
Indies tend strongly to oonfirm tho sus
! picion that the lease of 8amana Bay 1 b
really designed to prepare the way for
tho President's pet sohume of Sun Do?
mingo annexation. The New York Tri?
bune has private advioos of a new move?
mont of the insurgents in that island,
which itUiinks may prove serious, not
only to Baez, but to the infant colony of
Samana.* The two revolutionary chief?
tains, GabralandTjuporoo, have'hitherto
been hostile toward each other, butkave
now arranged a conference at Port-au
Pricae, audit is their intention, probably
with^ho aid of the Hay tion Government,
to make a united war upon Baez. Now,
these petty San Domingo chiefs aould
easily be bribed to make war upon ecoh
other; by Abo distribution of money and
? fow military suits and trappings; and
after " they had began their Mexican
modo of warfare, the Government oould
be called upon -to send ont troops to
protedt the Samana Bay Company, and
finally tramp up a treaty of annexation
with the warring ohiefu, any of whom
would soil the island and. its negro popu?
lation for a consideration. The next
stop would be to organize the island into
a State, whioh would Bend two Senators
to Washington to vote upqn questions
affecting tho welfare of New York, of
Ohio, and the other States. Such u pro?
ceeding would hardly be acceptable to
the people who gave the President's an?
nexation f.ohome the oold shoulder every?
where; and it will be well for them, in
view of the trouble indicated, to take
care that they are not inveigled into it
by politicul triokery.

day evening, Major Robert Biugbum
stated that to a North Carolina states?

Graham, then Secretary of tho Navy
under President Fillmoro, contrary to
tho wishes of the Cabinet and almost
against the orders of tho President, sent
Gommodoao Perry to forco commercial
relations upon tho Japanese, who hud
not only closed their ports absolul-ely for
200 years, whioh Gov. Graham hold thoy
had no right to do, bat who had mal?

The Recoup of the Bonaparte Faiji
IjY.?A correspondent Bonds to the Lon?
don Times the following cutting from a
Fron oh newspaper, dated July-23, 1802:
"The register of the Imperial family,
on which has been inscribed tho proces
verba* of the birth of Prince Napoleon's
son, ia a large ; folio volume, bound-.in
rod Velvet, and having at the corners
ornaments of silver gilt, with the family
cipher, 'N,' in the centre. It was begun
in 180(5, and the first entry made was the
adoption of L'riuco Eugenie by the Em-,
peror. The second, mado the same
year, relates to -tho adoption of tbe
Princess Stephanie'Beauharnais, who re?
cently died Grand Duchess of Baden,
and who was cousin to tho Empress Jo?
sephine. Next comes the marriage of
the Emperor Napoleon I, then several
certificates of the birth of princes of tho
family, and, lastly, of the King of Rome,
which closes tho series of tbe certificates
inscribed under the reign of the iir^t
? "This register was confided to the care
of Count Rcgnuult de St. Juan d'Angeiy,
Minister und Councillor of State and
Secretary of the imperial family. It
was to him, under the First Empire, as it
is now to the Minister of Stnto under
tho Second, that was reserved tho duty
of drawing up tho proces-verbaux of the
great acts relative to Napoleon. At tho
fall of the First Empire Count Regnault
do St. Jean d'Angeiy carofully preserved
the book, which, at his death, passed
into'the bauds of tho Countess, his
widow. That lady handed it over to the
President of the Republic, when Louis
Napoleon wns called, by universal suf?
frage, to the imperial throne.
"In this same register, continued.by
tho Second Empire, may bo soon the
certificates of the marriage of tho Em?
peror Napoleon III, and of that of the
Princess Clotilde; of tho birth of the
Prince Imperial; of the death of tho
Prince Jerome; and, lastly, of tho birth
of Prince Napoleon Victor Jerome
Frederic, just born. Tho name of Na?
poleon commemorates that of the head
of the dynasty; that of Victoria in' tbe
remembrance of the House of Savoy;
Jerome is that of his paternal grand?
father; and Frederio was given in com?
pliment to the family of Wurtemberg."
O?b National Debt.?"Why the na?
tional public debt has increased," is a
question that is exercising the gentlemen
at Washington who are always "account?
ing for things.'" ' When the December
statement was published, tho reason
given was, that the Treasury had not re?
ceived as much money as it had paid
out. This*.is plain enough for one to
understand, for it refers to a point in
tho eoonomy of finanoo very often expe?
rienced by private persons, us well as by
oities, States and nations. Since tho
January statement was published, there
is another explanation for that month,
and this one is not po agreeable. We
are told that the January statement
would have shown a decrease of the
debt, if the Treasury hud not paid oat
about $1,800,000 as interest on the bonds
loaned to the Pacific Railway Compa?
nies. To this it may be added, that the
Pacific Companies cannot pay this inte?
rest, but oompel the Government to pay
it, because munificent "subsidies" voted
by OongresB to tho companies wor.e
squandered upon the "Credit Mobilier"
and other railway rings in profligate
contracts, barefaced plunder, "special
expouBea" and "dividends," to procure
"more friends in Congress."

Sale op a Fire Engine.?A city
cotemporary gives the following descrip?
tion of a valuable machine recently com?
The splendid ton horse power portable
engine, which Major John Alexander bus
just completed, was sold yestordaj*, to
Mr. Alexander Honser, of Suniter. The
drawing from whioh this engine was
madu was drawn by Major Alexander,
and contains several novelties of his own
invention. So accurate was tho draft,
and so porfect was tho workmanship,
that when the various parts were joined
together, each fitted perfectly, and when
the fire was built, tho engino started
with two pounds of stoam, and was
fouud to bo in completo order. The
principal features of novelty is the con?
struction of the two cylinders cast in one,
and the double crank shaft, so that tho
one crank boats tho other ono-qnarter;
when one crank is passing the dead cen?
tre, tho other is getting full steam; thus
avoiding tho rocking motion usually
connected with tho piston ongiue. The
valves aro worked withsoparate eccentric
rods and rockiug arms, so that if only
half tho water is wanted, (say five horse,)
it is only necessary to throw out the one
eccentric rod; thus giving tho engino an
advantage over all other portoblo en?
gines, in a saving of fuel, whoa tho full
power of tho engine is not dosired. At a
slight additional cost, it is claimed, this
engine can be adapted to propelling itself
nloug tho road, and hauling freight in
cities. It is tho intention of tho in?
ventor, Mojor Alexander, to build one
for that purpose, constructed on the

Bubyi.su the Empire. ? The last Eoene
of all in the btrangc, eventful drama of
whioh Louis Napoleon was the central
figure, is described at so much length
and with such a firmness of diction by
the London correspondents of the New
York journals, and seems to have been
so imposing and grand, that one would
hardly think from its reading that the
obsequies were those of an uncrowned
and exiled monarch, surrounded by bnt
the shadow of his former splendor, and
with barely a remnant of the power he
once exercised. It is, perhaps, a strong
proof of the man's greatness in life,
that his death should summon snob a *
host; but it is also true, that with him
was interred his dynasty. The corres?
pondents agree that the Bonapartea, the
Fleurys, Bonnedittisnnd Boubers buried
the empire with the Emperor.

What Time Has Taucjht Us.?It h*b
takon 2,000 years to tench the world that
to sustain the body in its conflict with
diseaso, not to help disease by weaken?
ing tho body, is the truo end of medi?
cine. We have tho lesson by heart at
last, however. Wo know, for example,
that tearing doses of nlpcs, salts jalap,
oroton oil, calomel, ooloynth, &o'., aro
the best allies that a debilitating malady
can have in its assaults on tho human
frame; and that a medicine like Hostet
ter's Stoinnoh Bitters, which strengthens
all tho bodily powers and rallies the
Binking constitution, is the moat power?
ful antagonist of the morbific principle,
whatever it may bo, that lies at the root
of tho complaint. This knowledge has
.been a long time in reaching us, but it is
invaluable. We can now control and
cure*) dyspepsia, bilious disturbances,
constipation, rheumatism, nervousness,
and many other painful complaints once
considered incurable, with this admira?
ble corrective. - Fi/fDJ1
