TO SCHOOL OFFICERS.
"The School Commissioners deem U impor
tant to call the attention of Local Director,
Township Clerks, and Boards of Eduction, to
certain duties imposed upon them by the School
Law, ana to the inconvenience, losses and
penalties which mutt inevitably accrue if these
duties are neglected or vureasonably nottpon-
I. By section 8, it is made "the duly of the
directors in each sub-dislrict to take, or
csuse to be taken, annually between the first
and third Monday of October, (from October
2d to October 16 in 1854.) an enumeration of
all' the unmarried white and colored outb,
not ng them seperately, between the ages of
fir and twenty-one years, resident within
such sub-district and not temporarily theie de
signating between male and female, and re
turn a certified copy thereof to the Township
Clerk." . .
2.. If the directors fail to make and return
the enumeration, thu Township Clerk must
employ a competent person to do it and collect
the expenses irora the directors individually.
3. "The Township Clerk shall make an
abstract oi the enumeration, so returned to him,
designating the number of youth in each sub
district, and transmit such abstract duly certi
fied to the County Auditor within twenlydays
alter the return made to him by the Directors
or the person appointed to take such enume
4, By secion 19, it is made the duly of
the Board of Education "to prepare, or cause
to be prepared, and forwarded to the County
Auditor, at the same time when the return of
the enumeration of scholars is required to be
made, a statement exhibiting the number of
children in the township between the ages of
five and twenty-one yeara, distinguishing be
'ween male and lemale; the number sfschools
specifying the different trades; tbe number of
teachers, male and female; the number of
children mala and female, who have attended
school during the past year; the average at
tendance, the length or the terms of schools
compensation of teachers' male and female.the
number and condition of the school bouses
and furniture, and tbe estimate value (hereof;
the number and condition of the books in tbe
school libraries, the number of libraries, tbe
kind of school books used in the schools, the
number and value of school apparatus, and a
full account of the expenditures for school
purposes, together with other statistics snd in
formation in relation to schools as (he Slate
Commissionersof schools mav require.
5. Section 40 directs the County Auditors,
"on or before the twentieth dsy of December,
annually" to forward abstracts of "all there-
turns of school statistics made fiom the town
ships to the State Commissioner," and attach
es a penally of fifty dollars for the neglect, be
sides making them responsible for sny loss
thereby suslsined by any township or county,
asin.ilar liability for damages follows upon a
fail a re by a township cleik to "make ana re
turn the abstracts and enumeration required
by the act."
From the fprepoing summnry, the duties of
the different officers are appaient; tnd it now
remains to consider the consequences of neg
lecting their performance. The State Audi
tor apportions the school fund among the coun
ties, "upon the enumeration'andreiurnamade
o him by the State Commissioner," and ''the
County Auditors shall annually, immediately
after th-ir annual seltlementjwith the County
Treasurer, apportion the school funda for their
respective counties, according In. the enumer
ation and returns in their respective offices;
and no township, or other district, city or vil
lage, which shall hsve failed to make and re
turn such enumeration, shall be entitled to
receive any portion of the common school
fund." (Section 37.) '
- Still more explicit and imperative is the
last clause of Section 67, to wit: - "It shall
not be lawful for any County Treasurer to pay
over any portion of the school fund toany Je
eat treatarer, -board of education,' or other
schoofoflicers of any city, township, or Tillage,
organized as to schools either under a general
er a special law, "except on the order of the
auditor of tbe proper county; and no such
order shall be drawn by the county auditor,
unless the local treasurer, clerk, recorder, or
secretary of such board, or other school officers
shall first deposite with said auditor, annually
an abstract or the enumeration ofscholart.and
other statistics relative to the schools under
their charge, as required of this set of Teach
ers, Local directors and Boards of Education
As the reports required of the several grades
of school officers follow each other in a sort
of ascending series, with nearly the same
length of time . a Hotted to each grade for ma
king and reporting their respective abstracts,
it is highly important that these reports be
promptly made within the lime prescribed.
This is indispensible not only to avoid Josses
to school districts, and penalties to school of
ficers, but also to the hatmonious and efficient
working of the whole school system.
The reports required of those school officers
whose duty is to take the enumerations of
youth, should not be delayed beyond the 20th
day of October, nor those required of Town
ship Clerks and Boards of education, beyond
the 20th day of November. Ifthese reports be
promptly made, then will the -County Audi
tors be able, on or before the 20th day of De
cember, to make out and transmit to the com
missioner of Common Schools, an abstract of
all the returns of school statistics made to them
snd the Commissioner will be able to appor
tion, at the proper time, the common school
funds among the different Counties."

assert that 50,000 Russiana had entered Dob

U. S. Post-Office.
The ooerationa of the Finance Bureau of
tbe General Poat Office Department for the
current vear. discloses the fact of a rapid in
crease in the business and the importance of
the dead letter office. In the first quarter of
1862 the number of dead letters round by the
openers, which contained money, was, 1,701
the amount, tlO,23S; second quarter, 1,730
letters, and 81 1,176: third qanrter, 1,781 do.,
nd 810.8G9: fourth Quarter. 1.842 letters.and
811,713. In the quarter ending the 3lsl of
March, 1854 two years afterwards the num
ber of valuable dead letters reached 1,323,
containing 814,401. The second quarter
yielded 2,487 letters, and 814,32'' in money.
We have from the third quarter ending 30tli
September last 2,354 letters, in which were
found 814,088 in cash, v lieu it is recollect
ed that these do not embrace the dead letters
from foreign countries which are all returned
unoiened the progress of this branch of gov
ernmental service is more apparent.
Under the present prompt and efficient Ad
ministration, all dead letlera so discovered are
from day lo day, returned to the receiving
clerk, by whom they are duly registered the
correspondence prepared and the whole trans-,
milted by the outgoing mailt to the places at
which the letters were originally mailed, by

A man named Theodore Cngias wasarreat
ed in the third district, on Sunday night, charg
ed with stabbing and seriously wounding a
woman named Mary Roach, in t'aulphin
street. ll appears that the prisoner had some
spit against the girl, tnd went to her room
and induoea bertgO'tA bed with-him.
While .then he placed a handkerchief, (Mu
rated, it is supposed, with chloroform, to hef
mouth and nose, and when he bail ; reduced
her to a state of insensibility, he, proceeded,
with Ihe most deliberate and fiend-like cruelty
to rip open her abdomen, which he did in
three places. She is thought to be mortally
wounded, and Cagias is in prison awaiting
the result. Th above particulars were rela
ted to ua by a police officer; and we hope, for
the honor of human natuie, that they may be
exaggerated. Tbe same person informed us
that a relative of the prisoner's, sometime
since, attempted to poison the same wouian.iu
rrvenge for her having him arrested. Arie
A Word to Democrats.
To the Democracy who have firmly stood the
brunt of the battle who have vhrunk not
under the shock nf passion and persecution
who have been true to their country and them
selves,' we say that lime will vindicate their
course. Their patriotism will be the admira
tion of all who love their country, do fealty to
the Constitution, and venerate the examples
of the fathers of American freedom. We tell
them to be of good cheer. Not a year will
elapse before tbe Toe, now so exultant, will
"fall before us." With every possible com-
binstion against us, the old and true Democra
cy has accomplished wonders. It is the only
political party that possesses principles which
are acknowledged from tbe forests of Maine to
(he golden sands or Ihe Sacramento. N.ioiher
party has an existence, and our defeat is at
tributable alone to an unnatural fusion that
must explode by its incongruous elements.
we will not upbraid the Democrats no, not
even the foreign-born citizens who forsook
us in the hour of nee. J hey are our fellow-
citzens. They must prosper or perish beneath
the same genial skies or freezing blasts that en
compass us. We are sure "there's a good
time coming," and the sooner it Hoes come the
better for our country, and tbe better for those
who were once, and will be again, with tbe
Democracy. Cin. Enquirer.

A Problem Solved—The Fate of Sir John Franklin
For a number of years the civilised world
list bean painfully excited in regard .lo tht)
unhappy and mysterious fata which had be
fallen the hardy English laviptor, .Sir John
Franklin, in hia exploration of the Polar Seas.
His expedition lett England it) 1846, for the
Arctic regions, tnd never retained. . The ut
most exertions hive been made, both In Europe
snd this country, to aertin the fat whjca)
had befallen him, but, until recently, without
success. His wife, with a devetloa nd teat
almost unpsralled in the annle- of (rmela
heroism, won for herself an undying immortal
ity by ber efforts lo that end, and the unfal
tering hope with which she elung to the faith -
that lome true or him tnd hi men oiignt yei
be discovered. ' Several expeditions have been
sent from the North on a voyage of discovery,
but tbey all returned as barren of inforroorjna
tionasthey weut, in regard totha naturaoftht .
disaster which had befa.lea him, and ihe vea
selsondcrews under bis eemmand.' Soshroud
ei in mystery wt the dreadful secret, ao vain
the exertions to penetrate it, that nearly every
one had become convinced that it would never
be diaclosed, until that great day when the
ea should give ap its dead. - Whether the
Terror snl the rliihsd foundered beneath
the terrific gales of the Arctic oceanwhether
they had been wrecked upon the floating ice
bergs, and their craws plunged in a moment
into a watrry grave, or whether the latter bad
perished by the intense told, or had fallen
victims to guant famine, was left to painful
conjecture and terrible uncertainly. But the
veil, it -appear-, ha at last been raised. Sir
John Franklin and bis men rtarved to death
in the sterile regions of Fox river, in Jbo
spring of 1850, about four years after they had
left England. ...
, The most dreadfu.' fate which imagination
could posaibly conceive, it it rendered certain,
was that of Ihe hardy navigators. It is very
possible some memorandum of their desperate
atruggle with the climate and with starvation,
in tbe shape nf written parchment, may ba
dtscovcrid: and if it ts, it will be read with am
inexpressibly painful and melancholy interest.
It is lo be hoped that th ssd fate of so many
gallant men will hereafter prevent the tending:
to (he extreme north Ibek Arctic expeditions
of discovery. There are no objeo'a thai eanj -possible
be gained by sending an expedition)
to that quarter commensurate with tbe terri
ble hazards lo life to lie encountered b those
persons connected with them. Nature fc in
scrutable purposes, has erected almost isipas- -impassable
bairieis to the approach of man iu)
those latitudes, which are vast fields of sterile
frigid desolation. - ' . .' :-'
