If there is any one thing that will remedy
nil the evils of which we complain, and
justly, it is the establishment of a more
thoryu^h system of public education. No
unng else win operato as a rentorativo to
thf prose?it diseased moral, social and political
system. Wo may enlist under the banner
of anti-license, preach temperanoc, talk
about prohibition, yet it will all "naught
avAil." The. same panorama will continue
to pasa lx?fore us, with all its disgusting
loathesomeness. until we strike ?t tlm
of the evil. Drunkenness, vice, and crime
arc but the effects of a cause. What, then,
is the cause ? We answer, unhesitatingly,
our system of public instruction is most miserably
defective. It is not our purpose to
point out wherein consists the defect, nor
suggest any new method, but- wo think it
has been proved to demonstration that the
proseqt system is productive of little, if any
t;onl at all. It would seem, from the action
of the Legislature, this subject is fraught
with difficulty. They can agree on no plan.
Mr. Tucker, of Spartanburg, with the disinterestedness
and zeal of a patriot and philanthropist,
has acted nobly in this matter.
Itisto Ir; hoped that those who object to
his plan will introduce a better at the ap
pronciung session of flu- Legislature,so tli;i*
some practical results mny Imj exjierienei'd
in this enterprise of liencvulence and charity.
It is high time the Legislature of South
Carolina should deal less in abst met ions,
iirtd endeavor to eft'cct something that is real
and tangible. True, the Legislature, with a
nohle State pride, has annually, since tin;
year 1817, appropriated $38,000 as a common
school fund, and for the last two years
the fund has been increased to $75,000.?
This sum, economically expended, would be
amply sufficient to educate all the poor in
the State, and yield a hundred fold by way
of educated and useful citizens. Here then
is the first, grent defect?the manner of its
application. The correction of lliis evil,
then, is the starting point on the compass of
reform. Will the,Legislature longer postpone
the completion of this good work??
The maiir and divprwifiml intoMok
I iug from this point loudly calls for immediate
action. ) It is paramount to all other
| subjects that can lie brought be-toh: ilio LegI
islature, prohibition or the Maine Liquor
Law not excepted. We do not wish to be
understood as objecting to the principles of
temperance. On the contrary, we endorse
them with our whole heart, by whatever
name they may be called?anti-license, prohibition,
Maine Liquor Law, or anything
else. We would simply say, with due deference
to those who think differently, that
' the leaders in this great moral reformation
> are mistaken as to the means to. attain the
end with which they are so much engrossed.
' Let public education be the burden of their
1 theme. Let them urge it upon the.Legislai
ture to take some decisive step in the premi
iscs; let them make as strenuous exertions
to educate and enlighten the masses; then
. they may expect them to become temperate.
