THE HLAIK 1UI.I..
I'nitt'd States Senator Evarls in spcak
ing of the Suutlicm situation says:
The talk about education Ik-mir a do
mestic right, and therefore a Stale in
c imniunal concern, was specious. Tin
t'nion is only the lugger Slate, compre
hending the wisdom and forcsiglit ol all-
Mr. Evurts has fallen into the line o'

CJation in comparison with "the I'mon.
only a bigger State. The States are only
a family group of little sisters, overwhon
a big bullying brother, horn after tin
laughters were grown, petted, pain
p.'retl and indulged, until he has taker
control of the household as the rightful
master. Now Mr. Kvarts knows tin
much of the constitution of the I'nitcil
States not to know that lor matters ol
convenience and efficiency, the I'nior,
was created to act as agent for the fam
ily of States with powers and rights si
clearly and el.iscly dclined and limited,
that the States might act vigorously as
one body in affairs that called for unity
of action, but were left in sole control o
which thev did not choose to part with.
Now education was one of those things
for which each State holds, or ought tc
hold, itself solely responsible. Kael
State must be the judge of its ncccssi
tics, and also of its capacities. No State
North or South, is justly chargeahli
with neglect, least of all the Souther
States, which, in proportion to thcii
means, making allowance tor the pov
erty and desolation in which the wai
left them, have done more than all tin
other States to provide for the wants 01
education. We feel ourselves cpiite a
competent as Mr. Blair or Mr. Kvarts t'
estimate the value ol education. Wear
unite as sensitive as thev can be to tin
blight of ignorance. Hut we do not pn
pose to set about the enlightenment '
mental darkness bv the methods they
propose. Apart from offensive national
intermeddling with the internal affair?
of the sovereign Stales, there is anothei
question to be considered. liaeh State
has its modes of thought varying widely
from, thought not materially inconsist
ent with, those of others. Kadi Sum
hs its noble historic traditions which ii
wishes to maintain in its school histories,
its memories of its great and good incr
it wishes to preserve, fresh and holy, its
associations with its own historical lib
it dues not wish to sever. The Klaii
system of education is
workings; everything i
or lopped off to be h ! i
standard. Southern I ; " ;
taui'hi again, as I'ete in.-.,
teach us, that the whole country, all its
history, all its associations, all its inter
ests, centre upon New England, just as
Hoston is made to be the Hub around
which the universe revolves. We must
be taught again that l-'anueil Hall was
the eradleof liberty, and remain ignorant
that Mecklenburg county ever had a
voice in the matter; we must have dinned
into our ears the skirmishes of Concord
and Lexington and never learn that th
tight at Alamance, equally a blow struck
for freedom, had long preceded them. Wi
must sing the gloriouscxploils of ltuukei
Hill and Bennington, but be silent in tin
shame of ignorance when Moore's Creek,
or F.utaw or Guildford are named. And
our Black and Smoky mountains must
hang their diminished heads when tin
great Mount Washington is named,
though correct information would show
that at least twenty peaks in North Car
olina tower several hundred feet higher
than the New England idol. And we
shall continue to be taught that in the
late civil war that our people were in re
bellion against the great consolidated
central government instead of asserting
rights guaranteed under their construc
tion of the Federal compact; that our
soldiers were all rebels and to be so stig
matized through all time; that our gen
erals were all traitors deserving of death
bv the halter: and that the South is a
conquered territory, enjoying only pre
ent privileges not rights through the
clemency of the conqueror.
These are some of the incidents of the
Blair bill as it will lie applied in its Ren
The whole is based upon that idea ol
paternal government to which we referred
yesterday, to take under its wing an
army of men willing to lie fed out of the
public treasury, and to barter their liber
ties for n mess of pottage. It is full ol
dangers to our liliertics, because it saps
the very foundations ot manly indepenit
ence. It teaches the people to look be
yond themselves for help from sources,
which, after nil, are drawn insidiously
and indirectly from their own pocket.
It is dire mischief in disguise. Mr. Blaine
himx-ir. in an address at Bethlehem, N
H., has said :
"This bill is a more economic measure
than the tariff: and to the' North even
more vital than to the South."
Why? Not because the North needs
more facilities for, or aids to, education
their people claim they are amply pro
;drd: hut because, oucrattmr upon a
large distinct element, it is expected to
shape a political sentiment that will for
ever establish the fortunes of the Repub
Representative Browne's explanation
of the weeping Democratic victory in
Hw InHianaoohi election is that "the
votes went the wrong way."
DEATH OF MA J. li. I.. VAl'tiHS.
We publish elsewhere the notice, taken
from the Statcsville Landmark, of the
death of this gentleman. We learned
it with very sincere sorrow; for in Ire
qiicut legislative service with hini. we
learned to estimate properly his charac
ter and abilities. He will be remembered
with resncct and regard by several dif
ferent bodies of legislators, for he was
more than once a memlier of the House
from Alleghany. Ear from Ix-ing a
learned, or even an accurately educated
man, the soundness of his views, the
strength and clearness of his arguments,
mil the force ol his character gave him
ihe power of leadership in many impor
laul questions; and such was the regard
,.,,! f.,r liim that he was often called to
be L-hair. and one session was elected by
the House as the regular protein speaker
(If him the Landmark says, and it i
Maj. Vaughn was often spoken of in
ouuection with the congressional noini
latiou, and his ability and capacity lor
cgislalive work marked him as a hi man

.he politics ol his district. Nolwilh
standing that he was held in excellent
stcem bv the public, we have always
elt that he was rated liclow rather than
ibove his real capacity.
The Statcsville Landmark conies with

he inllucuee of the press. If its voice is
lot always at once heeded, yet surely
nul silently it sets influences at work
.vhich someday will bring forth good
ruits. Men arc set to thinking, and
.hev deliberately compare the operation
if reason and passion, of deliberation and
lastc, and they will reach the conclusion
ccrv safclv as to which will be the wisest
.'hoice. Let the press close up its ranks
mil press on vigorously in the the battle
