Technical Education of the Agricultural
Tho interest of the State \\hieh bus
suffered moat from neglect, or rather
from positive injury infiioted upon it
for nearly ton years past, is thut of edu
catien. The corruptions which have
prevailed, the odious and terrible wrongs
in which ? they have culminated, have
been, perhaps, moro provoking; but
nothing has been so bad as to contem?
plate the overthrow of schools and col?
leges, the deprivation of proper training,
uohooling and breeding on the part of
our youth. The BtreomB have dried up
cr poisoned at the fountain headr. The
master sham of the day. is the public
sohool system, for which the property of
the State has been so heavily mulcted.
The monster outrage upon true culture
is the prostration and defilement of the
State University. It is enoouraging to
notice, however, and pleasant to acknow?
ledge, that in several sections of tho
State this great interest has maintained
its importance in the minds of tho peo?
ple, and that a considerable measure of
success has, notwithstanding nil tho
drawbacks with which they have had to
contend, beSn aohieved in this matter.
It is a subject of unfailing importance.
We have, on several occasions, taken tho
liberty of suggesting to tho only efficient
and organized body of substantial citi?
zens in the State?the Grange?the ne?
cessity and advantage of their moving in
behalf of the technical education of tho
agricultural class. In connection with
this branch of a topic of buoIi deep and
wide-spread consequence to tho people,
wo have observed somo thoughts of
merit in a series cf articles published in
?? the JPenn Monthly and issued from Phila?
delphia, a few of whioh we will notice.
A scientific agriculture, tho writer
says, is about the last thing that any
people acquires; and yet, in view of tho
relation of tho life and happiness of tho
people to the fertility of tho soil, one of
the most important. It demands, also,
the still more general training of the
faoulties, even by branches which lio
outside of the farmer's own work, and
whioh shall bring the profession, as a
whole, op nearer to the level of liberally
.educated men?alive to the large material
responsibilities that rest upon them as a
class, and fully awake to the discovery
of every' possible means of discharging
-them. Unhappily, by a most "unnatural
?selection," the agricultural class in our
country is steadily drained of its most
promising elements, by a sort of emigra?
tion to other industries. Its profession
is carried on in a traditional plodding
fashion, which gives no opening for
.youthful ambitioh, no scope for intel?
lectual energy. The farmer's son sees
no future before him in agriculture
worthy of his striving?no ideal worthy
of absorbing his life. The only offectual
remedy is to be found in the elevation of
agrioulture to the rank of a scientific
profession, through the gradual but
thorough training of tho agricultural
class in the scientific principles
which underlie the art. But the
Agricultural College will come far
short of its great end, unless it can
form a class within the community who
are at once enthusiasts for the work they
bavo to do, and fully awake to the diffi?
culties they must encounter in doing it.
They must meet prejudices, which they
will cither intensify or overcome, accord?
ing to the wisdom or unwisdom of their
aotion. They are called to become tho
educators of the whole farming class, to
carry home to it tho conviction that sci?
entific knowledge is the key to its highest
success and prosperity, sud to gradually
amend traditional methods or supplant
them by better ones. By agricultural
societies, farmers' newspapers, State and
Connty conventions, and all the other
methods whioh bring that class into
thorough contact with itself?if the ex?
pression may be allowed?this educated
leaven must be mixed with the meal
"till the whole is leavened."
The Louisiana Compromise.
Tho frantic despatches of Marshal
Packard, complaining of a violation by
the Conservatives of Louisiana of tho
Congressional award aoccded to both
parties, and the reply of Congressman
Frye, of Maine, are calculated to mis?
lead the judgment by a porversion and
misrepresentation of the facts. The Au?
gusta Chronicle and Sentinel presents them
in a shape to throw another and dearer
light upon the whole affair. It is clear
that the Democrats have not violated, or
attempted to violate, the terms, of the
compromised They have done only what
they had o perfect legal and moral right
to do. Our contemporary says that the
Messrs! Burkhardt, Delamaine, Vorhiea
and CoUlns were elected members of the
Louisiana House of -Representatives at
the last general election. Their seats
were contested and their eases went be?
fore the Kellogg Returning Board. This
board was organized for the purpose of
Eving the Radicals a majority in the
egislature by ousting as many Demo?
crats as possible. Yet, even this board,
vile as it was, did not attempt the vil?
lainy of expelling the four members
whoso names are giver* above. The Con?
servative*, .?rdeote^ ,ip St.
Martin, and returned Afegsrs. Dolamaino

and Voihiea by a vote of 921 to 704? a
majority of 217. The Kot urn ing Board
conld only reduce, this majority to 167,
and, accordingly was compellod to gtvo
tho Conservatives certificates of election.
Mr. Collins was returned from St. Helena
by a majority of 86, and the Returning
Board could not disturb theao figures.
In Orleans tho majority was simply over?
whelming. These men took their seats
in the Legislature under tho certificates
which they held, und no attempt was
made by Grant or Kellogg to oust them
with the bayonets of Detrobriand. When
the Conservatives retired after the Houso
had been invaded by United States sol?
diery those four members went with the
In their absence, the Badical rump
elected a Speaker?ex-Governor Huhn ?
and other officers, and pretended that
they constituted the legal Houbo of Bep
rosentativos. Acting under this absurd
pretense, they expelled Messrs. Collins,
Delamame, Vorhies and JJurkhardt, dur?
ing their absence and without a hearing,
and put four BepubUoans in their places.
.This action was clearly unwarranted.
There was no legal House and no legal
Organization. Tho whole proceedings
were a patent nullity. Tho compromise
recognized this fact by seating excluded
members and providing for another and
a very different organization. When
this organization was effected, tho in?
truders were ejected, and the duly elected
and legally returned members "restored
to their places. Has there been any vio
lotion of the compromise by the Con?
servatives? Most certainly not. Tho
ostensible object of that measure was to
seat tho legally elected members of the
This view is further fortified by an ex?
tract from the New Orleans Picayune. It
Tho Conservative claimants were de?
clared elected by tho Returning Board.
Tho sitting Bepublicons were admitted
by resolution of tho Houso during tho
session at which ex-Gov. Hahn presided
over its deliberations. Thut body hnd
as much right to exclude all the other
Conservatives declared elected by the
Returning Board as to unseat the four
gentlemen who are about to be re-admit?
ted. The same process might have been |
applied to the whole Returning Board
list of Conservative members, and thus |
forty-nine places accorded to these Con?
servatives might have been awarded to I
on equal number of Republicans who
were never elected. In such an event
the effect of the award would simply
have been to seat twelve Conservatives
from among the number of those whose
cases were considered by tho committee,
and these would have found themselves
lost among a crowd of 09 Republicans.
It is clear that such a result would have
vitiated the award and the adjustment?
would, in fact, have made it a burlesque
instead of a serious decision. The final
condition of the compact of adjustment
is that the House, as constituted by the
award, shall remain undisturbed except
by such changes as might result from
death or resignation. But what is the
?'House?" It is clearly not a body
created by the fantastic rulings of the
quorumless body of which ox-Governor
Hahn was Speaker. It is the Houso as
constituted by the Returning Board, and
as modified by tho committee's award.
The basis of tho whole agreement is that
those Conservatives declared elected bj'
tho Returning Board, were, and are, un?
questionably entitled to scats. To these
wero to be added such members as the
committee might decide to havo been
elected, but whoso places had been
WTongfuUy withheld from them. This
is the House as constituted by the

A portion of tho performance at Wood's
Theatre, yesterday afternoon, was not
announced in tho bills, and there is the
best reason for believing that it would
have been better if the performance in
question had not taken place. During
the past week, it has been n part of the
I programme for Mr. Frank Fravne to per?
form a little of tho "William Tell" busi?
ness by shooting an apple placed on the
top of his wife's head. To perform this
feat, Mrs. Frnyne takes her position at
the front of tho stage, in the centre of a
line between the two proscenium boxes.
Mr. Frayne stands at one of the boxes,
with his back to his wife, and discharges
the gun over his shoulder. The ball
always goes with unerring aim through
the heart of the apple, and is flattened
against on iron plate, about two feet
square, suspended from the proscenium
box on the opposite side of the stage.
Most people who have witnessed this
remarkably daring feat are inclined to
believe that thero is some trickery about
it, and that in reality there is no bullet
fired from the weapon. All doubts on
this point was removed at the matineo
performance yesterday afternoon. The
"opp*1o business" was successfully ac?
complished by Mr. Frnyne, but tho bullet
did not "flatten out'" as intended. It
struck the iron plate all right; but
glanced off, and entered the foot of Mr.
Charles Clifton, an employee at the
theatre, making a terriblo wound. The
ball entered Mr. Clifton's foot on the in?
side just forward of the instep, and then
passed through the ankle-bones, coming
out at tho heel.?Cincinnati Commercial.
Passional Cant.?There was a merry
fellow who dined at Plato's some ages
sineo, and the conversation turning upon
love and matrimony, he said:
He had learned from a very ancient
tradition that man was originally created
male and female in one, each individual
being provided with a duplicate set of
limbs, and performing his locomotive
functions with a kind of rotary move?
ment, like a wheel; that man became in
consequence so excessively insolent, that
Jupiter, indignant, split him in two.
"Since that time," said the merry guest
to the philosopher, "each half mnB about
the world in quest of its other half, and
if the two congenial halves meet, they
are a very loving couple. If the con?
trary, they are eabject to a miserable,
peevish, nagging and uncongenial matri?
mony. But the quest is rendered diffi?
cult by the fact'that ono man alighting
upon the other half that never belonged
to him,: another necessarily falls into the
some error;.and thus, in the conrso of
many centuries, society has been thrown
into irrotriovablo confunion."

tiesThat abe Not Ykt Quoted.?Tho
Hon. F. Ii. Gardozo, Treasurer of South
Carolina, is visiting this city. ' About a'
year ago, he was formally presented to
the readers of the Sun. At thai time he
had offices in the Astor House, and was
trying to persuade the owners of $12,
000,000 South Carolina bonds that their
beet course was to accept $6,000,000 con?
solidation bonds in lieu thereof. This
time the dusky financier is quartered in
the Westmoreland Hotel, in rooms that
look out on the wintry bleakness of
Seventeenth street. Mr. Cardozo was en?
tertaining another eminent financier
when the writer entered his apartment*,
and the visitor bore part of the burden
of the conversation that ensued.
Mr. Cardozo does not carry the cork?
ing cares of office in hi*; face. In fact,
he has grown more portly and his face
shines more unctuously, and is wreathed
with smiles betokening even greater self
contentment than marked it a year ago.
He is affable to the point of volubility,
and ho expresses himself with almont
perfect purity of English.
"Has your visit any financial import,
Mr. Cordozo?" the roporter queried.
"Not at all," he ropliod. "You soe, I
was called to Washington by business,
and having finished that, I took a little
run on to soo your city. Relaxation from
tho cares of State, you know," he con?
tinued, with a nod of lofty condescen?
"How have you succeeded with the I
conversion of bonds that made your last |
"Finely, finely, I ensure you. The
bonds have gone rapidly, although the
conversion is not yet complete. You
see," said he, with the confidential air of
one who announces an indisputable pro
?osition, "confidence is hard to restore,
ou may destroy it in a day, but it takes
months, nay, years, to complete its re?
storation. Wo are succeeding, I may
Bay, well, nevertheless. The old bonds
are quoted at 23 in tho Stock Exchange,
and the consolidation bonds at?well, I
believo thoy aro not quoted yet. But they
will bo in a month or two." the states?
man finished, in a tone of hopefulness |
bo reassuring that tho reporter could
hardly refrain from terminating the in?
terview at onco and hastening to the |
Stock Exchange to buy a million or so.
Another consideration checked his en?
thusiasm, however, and prompted the j
Spiery: "Have they ceased Belling hinds
or arrears of taxes?"
"Hem! hem!" the great financier's
throat needed clearing, and ho did not
respond so readily or volubly. "Oh, no;
we liave not ceased forfeiting lands yet.
Tax sales happen everywhere, I reckon.
You'd be surprised to seo the readiness ]
with which tho taxes are paid, howevor.
Oneoollector, in making Ihb report to me,
remarked the gratifying fact that he had
$75,000 on his books, and all bat $200
or $300 were paid up without a process.
Reports from many other districts arc!
equally gratifying. Republicans and
Conservatives aro equally cheerful, nay,
anxious in paying up. It all grows out of
the hearty accord and good feeling among
j the officers of the State. We at la6t have
' a Governor who is both able and honest,
j There's no discord, no bickoring. Re
Jvublicons and Conservatives aro alike
lopeful and alil-J hearty in their support
I of the State policy."
'Was there not considerable discord
I at the late election, even in the Republi
I can ranks?"
"Oh, yes. Governor Chamberlain was
elected by only about 10,000 majority,
but his inaugural set everything right.
He in it laid down his policy, and the
people who heard were wild with enthu?
siasm. Even the bolters shouted 'That's
the man we voted for, only we called
him Greene,' alluding to Judge Greene,
the Conservative candidate, you know.
They support him heartily now in his
policy and in his vetoes. He's the most
popular man in the State.*'
'How do the State officers stand on the
third term question?"
'Well, the fact is, we. haven't much to
sav about it. Tho Governor always
tlnnkH twice before he speaks, and he
has his hands full in regulating the
affairs of the State. We want to get
it straight first, then maybe we'll think
I about turning our hands to mending the
I nat ion."? Neva York Sun.
