1II.AIK 1IH. I.,
We have been fiivnral.iu coninuin with
the press generally, with a copy ol this
Kctitleman's circular addressed "to the
friends of free schools in the South." ll
is the expression ot an earnest philan
thropic sentiment that the blessing of ed
ucation shall reach to the humblest child
in the country; a sentiment in which
every thoughtful man will unite. The
question is as to the means and agencies
to reach that desirable end.
Mr. Curry admits the willingness, in
fact eagerness, of the South to provide
for its illiterate of both races, with a no
bility of impartiality and generosity '
sacrifice that ennobles the people of this
section, and saves them from the re
proach of parsimony or prejudice. Tais
maybe illustrated by the statement in
the circular, in other connection, that ol
the illiterate voters in the South (i'.l.S per
cent, were negroes. Also, that since tin
war, the South has paid nearly or quite
S"o,0(n,nili for the education of the ne
groes; and (icneral Armstrong, principal
ot the Hampton colored school says
"Southern taxpayers are doing more
than any others for the negro by main
taining Kt.fHIO colored schools at an an
nual cost of over $;!, (KMi.oilii. (if every
$1 00 paid in Southern taxation. $!H.."ii
are paid by white people."
Surely the white people of the South
cannot be reproached with disregard to
the necessities of negro enlightenment, or
want of generosity in providing tlu
means to bring it about. We doubt
whether Northern taxpayers would sub
ject themselves to such discrimination
against their own pockets. We wish to
call attention to one error of Or. Curry
erroneous at least as regards North Caro
lina, lie says "prior to ISO? there was
not any general or elk-dive school sys
tems in tile South ; there were academies
and colleges, hut no adequate provision
tor the education of the masses." That
is only partially true. In this State, a
general common sehoi il system was put
in operation about ls.'i'.l-'f-O. Taxation
and the interest from the educational
fund provided a partial revenue supple
mented by the State to make fair, though
not abundant, support for the system.
The trouble was then, as it is lamely tlu
case now, that sparscness of population
in many py'ls of the State made aid in
applicable. Schools cannot be maintained
where pupils cannot reach them. This is
one cause of illiteracy no present remedy
ik'forc the war, the subjects of educa
tion were all white, ami the proportion
ate aid was greater than now, when it is
distributed equally among the children ol
the two races, oneof whicheontributcs to
the fund ; the other tloes not.
U tile white children only were to bt
provided for, with the increase of wealth
all ditlieulty of providing amply for them
would vanish. If there be not enough
now. it is because taxpayers fire bur
dened with the provision for a race which
contributes n -thing. And thus it comes
to pass that chiefly, almost solely, to en
lighten negro illiteracy, we as well as all
the South, are called upon to subscribe
to an unconstitutional doctrine, and
welcome the Hlair bill.
( lur friend ot the New s-( Ibserver agrees
with us "that the Federal government
has no right to raise taxes for any such
purpose a proposition that we entirely
agree to." This gives away the whole
question; it is the very point tit issucT
the question of unconstitutionality, the
question of authorizing and inviting I-ed-eral
interference with our domestic af
fairs. Yet after such admission, the New s
(Ibserver says, after saying that much,
"hut which we think is straining a gnat,
for the government has always been car
rying in its vaults an idle surplus about
equal to the amount appropriated in the
bill; and secondly, the government hav
ing annual overplus of revenue of $100,-
0011,1)00, lias disbursed tnat sum an
nually in ways that are hurtful to the
South, rather than beneficial."
In other words.it admits a great wrong
but proposes to correct it by the com
mission of another. It says that taxes
will continue to go on without reference
to the Hlair bill, that the treasury will
continue to receive more than it lias use
for; consequently, there will always be a
surplus to le disposed of, either usefully
or wastefully. Hut we have asserted
that this surplus is wrongfully gathered
in, it is the exaction from the people of
money practically stolen from them
through the internal revenue and a high
protective tariff. It the government
should lie authorized or compelled to
pav back any portion of that surplus to
the people or the States, it would be only
just return ; or if it lie given back in aid
of education or other pretext, it would
lie only robbing Peter to pay Paul ; the
people will only have taken out of one
pocket to put it not all by any means
in the other. The surplus has no just
or legitimate existence ; and to legalize
its character by consenting, as a condi
tion that we share in some ol its abund
ance, to the perpetuity of the sources
from which it is derived, is making our
selves parties to a stupendous wrong,
originating a question of morality as
well as constitutionality.
We would direct attention to an ad
mission of the News-Observer which
shows condition attached to the "do
nations" under the lilair bill, not in har
mony with a disinterested generosity,
though by no means inconsistent with
large appropriations out of the surplus.
"The sum given is to be expended in the
common schools on the right and health
ful condition that no greater part shall
be paid out to any State in one year than
the sum expended by that State out of
its own revenues."
In other words, while the people of the
South are still to be enormously taxed to
keep a fat surplus in existence, they must
go on taxing themselves to raise an
amount equal to that which the govern
ment shall give back to them out of their
previously extorted earnings.
line argument of Dr. Curry in favor of
government aid through the work of the
lilair bill is that "the aid proposed, if
given in bulk, is not as much as is given
everv vcar to soldiers and claim agents
in the way of pensions."
And that is so; but no one believes that
pension distribution on its present ex
travagant ba. is is just or honest. The
argument ol lb. Curry does not prove
that two wrongs make a right.
The Blair bill is unconstitutional, be
cause the constitution makes no pro
vision for such use of the public moneys;
it is demoralizing, because it saps the
independence of the people by making
them lean upon other resources than
their own, and it is offensive, as making
the strongest appeal for violation of the
constitution in favor of a race to whom
the ideas of constitutional liberty are ut

of lIic direct influences of the high pro-
'ective tariff, that comes home to every
coffee pot in the country; every good
wife and every man who needs the cheer

the beginning or the end of the day's
work feels it. Like the shoddy question
of which we spoke the other day, it is
strictly and emphatically and universally
personal in application.
Both of these grievances grow out of
the present protective tariff.

The venerable Hugh McCulloch, cx
Secrelary of the Treasury, is well ad
vanced in years, but his mental powers
remain in good working order. The fol
lowing statement of the difference be
tween the Republicans and Iiemoerats
on the tariff question is admirably clear
and concise :
"Both parties believe that the govern
ment must, as has always been the case,
be mainly supported by duties upon im
ports, but beyond this they are at vari
ance. The Republican party, according
to its generally approved platform, be
lieves that duties should be imposed not
only tor revenue, but also, and mainly, to
proU t home manufacturers fromforeign
competition. The Democratic party, ac
cording to ils platform, from which there
are few dissenters, believes that duties
should he imposed for revenue, not for
protection ; that Congress, imderthe con
stitution, has no authority to impose
duties to protect manufacturers in the
I'nited States against the manufacturers
of other nations; but while it lielieves
that duties should lie imposed for reve
nue and not for protection, it believes
also that duties .should be imposed
mainly upon luxuries and upon such
goods as lire manufactured in the I'nited
States, so that home manufacturers may
have the incid ntnl advantage resulting
therefrom in their coin)etition with for
eigners. On this point it now stands
where the Whig party stood when Henry
Clay was its leader.
"The question, therefore, immediately
and prominently before the country is:
Shall duties be imposed niainlv for pro
tection or mainly for revenue for pro
tection as the object and revenue the inci
dent, or for revenue as the object and
protection the incident."
