AGENTS WANTED FOR THE
The School Question.
The closing of the public schools
lost week by order of the School
Commissioner Iri- attracted our attsn
lion te this subject. That nur schon 1
authorities need wisely in this mat
ter is proved hy the lh':t that in
Orange Township alone there is a
debt from last year of s.nne $i>')0 ad
dt d to the already large debt in conse
quence of the schools having been
run longer than the appropiation
could meet, and the consequence is
that ? number of I etchers who work
ed faithfully perhaps cannot l)e paid
without extra appropriation.
The object of our present school
authorities is to guard against this
difficulty, and. if the funds admit, to
reopen the schools earlier in the fall.
This is certainly the best that can be
done under the circumstances; and
under our present free school system
Bui we would ask, cannot the
whole system be changed for the
better? To a< complish much good
the schools must be kept open a
longer time. The utilizing, an 1 in
some degree perfecting the school
system is a subject worthy the atten
tion of our best thinkers. For a eh ild
to go to school two or three mouths
and stop nine or ten is almost useless.
When he returns in the fad be will
have to commence about where be
started at lirst.
To us it seems that it would be
better to have fewer, larger anil bet
ter schools, well graded, and kept
optn the time required bylaw, than
to have so ninny schools kept open
only three months. We are aware
that the ditduncc to water will be
inler| osed as an objection, but we
would ask if this disadvantage would
not be compensated by the greater
advantage ot better teachers and the
long?-*' JufiiloH oi'niaiiuvaiuii, Uwcli
of which n o unmey .*i| proprio cd
would then procure.
There is too much effeninacy
nowadays, in bringing up children
If an education is appreciate! a
moderate walk will n it. become a
barrier. We kn >w of gentlemen
whose f>>!H and daughters are now
regularly talking four mile 1 to at
tend our private schools in town. If
the Townships are too large he school

It i.-> difficult to liod competent
teachers to accept a situation for
tbi-'-e month . hut they will lor nine
\V? know wi have some good teach
ers, but we waul all good.
Reduce tb<" number nl schools ti
the Township, instead of the number
of mouth? taught; incorporate lb.>
graded system; keep them open nine
months, and emp'oy the best teachers,
and we arc inn iucd to think liiat the
cause of public education will be
reformed in the State.

The Democrats can well iiflbrd to
go to the country on the evidotic :
taken by the Committee. They can
do this, because the evidence, assum

equally credible, will satisfy every
body who can be satisfied by any
evidence (1) that both the Radicals
and the Democrats hud the means of
voting fraudulently; (2) that tickets
which could have been fraudulently
used were polled by both parties; (.'> i
that no irregularity is even indicated

was no maiming or killing, either

An Un;'X#a>?eil Race.
Pompey discovered that these races
were on die tapis, und ho resolved to
enter his mastcis horso on his own
account, for hcj felt sure that old
Morgan could teat anything in the
shape'.of horseflespthat could ba pro
duced in that^"T^ter. So on the
very next SundayiOvontng he hid th a
bridle under his jacket, went out. into
the pasture and caught the horse, at.d
then rede oil'town ds the spot where
the wicked ones] were congregated.
Here be found Siine dozen horses as
sembled and the Hieing was about to
commence. Pomp]mounted bis beast,
and at the sigi.nl he started. Old
Morgan entered into the spirit ol the
thing, and cumwuut two rods ahead
of everything. JWrVoinp won quite
a pile, and beffo? dark be was well
initiated in horser?c:ng.
I omp succeed d in getting home
without cxcithi?>ny suspicious, and
he now longed for the Sabbath after
noon to come, for he was determined
to try it again, lie did go again, and
again he wori; and this course of
wickedness lie followed up for two
months, making his appearance upon
the racing-roil lid every Sunday after
noon, as soon as he could after
"meeting was out." And during this
time Pompey was not the only one

No, for old Morgan himselfhad conic
lu love the excitement, of the thing,
tun, und his very motion when upon
the track showed bow zealously he
entered into the spirit of the game.
But these things wen; not always
to lemaiu a secret. One Sunday a
pious deacon beheld thin racing from
a distance, and straightway went to
the parson with the a 'arming intelli
gence. The llev. Mr. Ridewell was
utterly shocked. His moral feelings
were outraged, and he resolved at
once to put a stop to the wicked
During the week he mad; many in
quiries, nud he learned that this thing
hud been practised all sunt nor on
every .Sabbath afternoon. Me bide
his parishioners !?eep quiet, and he
fold lliehi that on the next Sunday
ho would ina'.e his, appearance 0:1 the
very spot and catch them in their
deeds of iniquity.
On the billowing Sabbath, after
dinner, Mr. Hi dcwell ordered Pomp
to bring up old Morgan and put him
in the stable. 'Ihe order was obey
ed, though not without many misgiv
ings 011 the part of the faithful negro.
As soon us the afternoon services
were closed, the two deacons and
some others of the members of the
church accompanied the minister
home, with their horses.
"It is the most fragrant pieco of
abomination that over came to my
knowledge,' said the indignant
clergyman, as they rode on.
?'It is. most assuredly,"answered
one of the deacons.
''Horse-racing on the Sabbath!'1
uttered the minister.
"Dreadful !" echoed the second
And so the conversation went on
until they reached the top of a gentle
eminence which overlooked the p'ain
where the racing was carried on, ami
where some dozen horsemen, with a
score of lookers-on, wert: assembled.
The sight wns one whudi chilled the
good parson to his soul. He remain
ed motionless, until he bad made out
the w hole alarming truth, then turn
ing to his companions:
"New, my brother-," said he, "let
us ride down and confront the wicked
wr tches, and if they will down upon
I their knees and implore Clod's mcroy,
and promise to do so no more, we will
not take legal action against them.
?, that my own land should he
desecrated thus !" for it was indeed a
section of his own farm.
As the good clergyman thus spoke,
he started on towards the scene. Tlie
horses of the wicked men were just
drawing up for a start as the minis
ter approached, and smiic of the riders
who at oucerecognized "old Morgan,"
did not recognize the* reverend
gentleman w ho rode him.
"Wicked me.,!" commenced the
parson, as he came near enough for
his voice to he heard, "children of sin
"Come #>p, old In ss," cried one
of thejoekeys, running towards the
minister. ' If you arc in for the first
race, you must stir your stumps. Now
' Alas ! O, my wicked?"
"All ready!" shouted he who led
in the affair, cutting the minister
short. "And off it ,V
And the word for Etarting was
given. Old Morgan knew that word
too well, for no (sooner did it full up
on his curs than ho struck out his
nose, and with otto wild snort he
started, and the rest of the rr?oors I
twelve in number, kept him company .
"Who-oal whoonoa!" cried the
parson, tit the top of his voice.
?*By the powers, old fellow, you're
a keen one !" shouted one of the wick
ed men. who had thus far managed
to keep close by the side of the parson.
"You ritle well."
"Who ho ho o-o ! who a oa !" yell
ed the elergyu.au, tugging at the
reigns with all his might.
The Conference of the African
Methodist Church he'd here last
week was in striking contrast to that
ihu < vjlorc.l brauu h of the Noi'lh"
crn Methodist Church held at Green
ville at. the same time. The former
was a qui el, orderly body, dealing
only with religious su hjects, doing
and saying nothing that savored of
politics, while the latter was just the
coutrary. Bishop Gilbert llaveu,
Dr. Fuller, Dr. Webster and other
whites present did all they coul 1 to
tire the negroes' hearts against the
whites among whom they live. The
Greenville Nctct states that Dr. Ful

of Atlanta, addressed Ihe Conference
Saturday. Speaking of the lato elec

field; said the whole population of
that County, male nnd female, was
only about 7,000, yet the Democrats
claimed n majority of 7,000 This
the re\creud doctor said was "a
wicked, huge aid stupendous lie.''

The Straggle for Wealth.
Tho great struggle with civilize 1
people in this world ia for wealth.
This is called prime good, the one
thing needful, the great dis:deratum
of life. So meu toil for it; deceive,
cheat, defraud for it. Give time,
strength'and'ofte u good health for it.
The truth is, the estimate put on
wealth is too high. Its good, its value
is over rated. It is not the best thing
men cau have. It does not confer
peace of mind nor purity of the heart,
heartfelt happiness nor contentment,
no home joy, no social blessedness,
nor any of the solid and enduring
enjoyments. Wealthy homes ara
ofteu lappier than those of the
poor nnd comfortable livers. Poverty
is always an evil; but a lair supply of
tbe neaessarics and comforts of lire ia
quite as apt to confer real peace a*
great wealth. It isnotgoid nor good*,
therefore, that make men really
wealthy. The best wealth is.of the
heart, an enlightened niird, a loyal
conscience, pure affections. Hi is ths
wealthier who has the larger stock of
wisdom, virtue and love?whose heart
beat with warm sympathies for hin
fellow-men?who finds good in all
seasons, all provinces and all mon Thi
generous man who pities thennfortu
natc; the poor man who resists tempta
tion; the wise man who orders well
his life; clings closely to his family
and friends; the Btudious man who
sceki instruction in all things, are
the truly wealthy men.
Poor and Proud.
Yo ung men out of business are fre
quently sadly hampered by prid*.
Many young men who go West take
more pride than money, and bring
back all the pride and so money at
all. A young man who works for
his board, no matter what honest
work he does, has no reason for
shame. A young mau who eats broad
of idleness, no matter how much
money he has, is disgraced. Young
men starting jn life ought to Vim first
of all to find a place where they can
earu their bread and butter with hoe,
axe, spade, wheel-barrow, curry
comb, blacking brush?no matter
how. Independence first. The bread
and butter quest'un eettled, let the
! young mau perform his duty so faith
fully as to attract attention, and let
him constantly keep his eyes open for
a better chance. About half the
poor, proud young meu, and two
thirds of the poor, discouraged young
men are always out of work. The
voung'uiau who pockets his pride and
carries an upper lip as stiff as a cast
iron door-steps scraper, need not
starve, and stands a good chance to
Sherman at Atlanta
Tho N'tcs and Courier thus com
ments upon the circumstance of Gen.
Sherman's visit to Atlanta last
The placid indiffereuce with which
the people of Atlanta have treated
the visit of Geu. Sherman to their
city is worthy of all praise. They
have neither sought him nor shunn
ed him. They-have not even taken
pains to couceal their very natura
curiosity to behold the man who has
played a very conspicuous, if not an
altogether honorablo, part in tho his
tory of the times, and especially in the
history of their city. Atlanta, in
this instance, is tho representative of
the South, and the incidents of Gen.
Sherman's visit to that city are a
striking illustration of iho fact that
with us the war is a thing of the p?st.
which, although it will never be for
gotten, will also never be revived.
There is no doubt that in tho fat
daj s of Radicalism ono of tho great
est sources of fraud was the printing
appropriation. It now appears from
Maurice's testimony before the Teller
Committee that Swails and his Re
publican Printing Company of Wil
liamsburg were making a good thing
of it among themselves.
