Tiik accounts of Stato Treasurer
Raines of New York, supposed to be a
delaulUr, aro found to bo all right
But though bis accounts nro not de
ranged, he is, and be is now iu the
Utica Insane Asylum to get cured.
A man named Tom Murphy has
baan stealing cassimcre by tlm bolt, over
in Charleston, Missouri. The difl'cr-
ence between this fallow nuJ tho other

that the Missouri Murphy has been scut
Tiik lower houso ol congross bus be
como ao busy and industrious that it
puses tbo same bills over two and three
timet. There is somo comfort in
knowing that this sort of legislation
can do no mischief. If the bills arc bad,
they will do no mo.ro harm than
if passed upon only once
Till democrats of Oregon havo tri
umphed orcr tbo republicans, the Inde
pendents and tho "pcoplu'o paiiy" and
hare elected their entire stale
, tiokct. Of course the repre
sentatives of the "grand old
party" feel good. It is now in order
to say "a rose by any other namo
would smoll as sweet" and if the dem
ocratic administration elect of Oregon
give the people an honest and efficient
state government, the people will no
doubt be satisfied.
Tiik peoplo who aro in favor o t
turning ovor to the government the
management of the telegraph wires, may
take a little hint of what the plan
would lead to from the working of the
same plan in Kngland. In the begin-
nieg, the government waa put to great
expense to get tho system in working
ordtr ; the estimated cost of the lines
to tho treasury was two million, two
hundred thousand pounds, or eleven
millions of JolJarbut tho real cost was a
sum immensely larger than this thirty-seven
millions of dollars. A table
ot the roceipts and expenditure of tho
telegraphic department to January
lS73,sbows a deficiency of its revenues
to meet the interest on stock for the
year of over five hundred and sixty
eoven thousand dollars. The interest
paid is only three per cent, instead of
five, which tho UnitoJ States would
havo to pay as a borrower.
The government charges for the
transmission of words have been at tho
rate of a shilling for tweutv words.
Thia la apparently cheap telegraphy for
the people, hut is In reality dear, since
they havo to pay for tho cxponvivo fail
ure in increased taxes. A like fail
ure in tho United States would have
to be paid for, by tho peoplo in like
TIIK COMMON SCHOOL QIJJIS
TION. A not inconsiderable amount of non
MHe has bee said and written on the
common school quostien. Among this
may b classed, without fear of suc
cessful contradiction, the expression of
the opiion by the 'Western Free
Tress,' published at Capo Girardeau,
Mo., that Mm "public school aupportod
by taxation should adopt an educational
course as comploto and thorough as
that adopted by tho best colleges in the
land ; that "there should be no noed
of sending tho youth of America to
' ny other ttian the public schools to
be educated in languagos, literature,
acienoo or any other branch of a lib
ral education." Tho "Frco Press" as
the climax of this absrdity
declares that "in truth all schools
W the publio schools hhould
be closed and tho youth of tho
land comp tiled to be educated at said
publio achools." Merely stating that
the newspaper wWoh tavB. this poi.
Hon elating to bo a domooratin
paper, we will let the last assertion go
... wvuii worm, it is a litt0 too
"advanced" for even the most ultra
worshippers ol tho common school
yaUrn to do other than smile at.
lbehloathata thorough education,
brums knowledge of literature
-.icUbo, the languages, dead and alive
. "bould bo taught i our
OMtaon Hhooli, in based on the other
Hothttauch. P'm is a benefit to
tie poor man who cannot aflord to cd
ucato his children at expensive "pay"
schools or colleges.
Lot us tec how nearly wo arrive nt
the truth by putting this idea into
practice, Thcro are, iu this land of
the free and home of the bravo,
when all men arc popularly said to bo
equal, roally three classes of society '
tho poor class,tho middle class, and the
realthjr class. Tho poor man, if he
owns a home worth a few hundred dol.
lars, pays a school tax. Tho comfort-ably-off
man of tho middle class who
owns a fine farm or houses and lot.- in
town, pays a school tax. Tho man who
is rich iu lands and houses nud stock
in railroads and banks pays a school
tax. Which of these three classes re
ceive.') the full benefit of our common
school system ? Xot tho rich
man. llis children frequently nro nev
er sent to a common school ut all
Their education is begun by n govern
ess or tutor or at a private school and
completed iu a BCtnitiary or college.
Not tho children of tho poor man.
They are sent to pchool ut the ne of
six ticrhnnj. and kent there until at ten
or twelve or fourteen years ol ago, tho
nucositicsof the parents compel their re
mom) (roin school the boys learn
t radon, thn ktirl-
are kept :it home to assist tho over
worked mother of tho generally lari'c
family. Neither girls nor boys havo
acquired mote than n knowledge of
reading and writing, a slight acquaint
unco with geography, mid cuf
ficient one of "ligiiies-' to
answer tho most ordinary
purposos of life. Occasionally a
"bright" boy or girl goes a little lar
thcr and leaves school with the con
ciotuncfs that if futo had been kinder,
he or hhc might have pursued with ad
vantage tho studies now general
ly comprising our common school
Which class is it then that ireceivos
the actual .benefit of our public schools
as they are now conducted? It is the
ohildren of the well-to-do mid
dle class, of the men who
can afford to buy books and clothing
for their children and keep them at
school until they are eighteen or twen
ty years of age. The school tax is not
considered a burden by these
men because thev feel that
it inures to their advantage many fold.
But as the common school course is
enlarged and improved and made to
embrace all the brauches comprising a
"liberal education" the school tax in
creases iucrcasce for the poor mau
whose benefits from it do uot increase
i ... , ,
uu uucuuics a grinuing ouruen in
creases lor tno rich man who never
takes advantage of its benefits, and is
oiieu lolt by Jam to bo an unjust bur-
ucu. Hence we see that tho two ex
trcmcs of society, tho poor class and
the rich class, endure the burden of
tho school tax to educate the children
onho middle class. The remedy for
mis manliest injustice lies in reducing
the school tax, which necessitates to
ducing tho expenses of tho common
schools and is arrived at by making
tho common school course embrace a
knowledge of reading, writing, aritli
metie and the rudiments of other prac
tical branches. These, if well taught,
will enablo the children of all classes
to become well informed citizens, will
lay the foundation for a "liberal educa
tion," which may bo acquired by other
meana u.u ai tne public expense and
will reduce tho school tax so that the
poorest man will feel it no burden and
the richest no injustice.
