no jpjrr-paratory JHxLitary School.
Tl i? distinctive feature of this Institution
is to bo found in its adaptation to the
.finis of a school preparatory to the regular
studies of the Arsenal and Citadel Academies.
The absencc of any prescribed course
*?t' studies preliminary to entrance into
' .the classes ol" the Academies, incident,
doubtless, to the charity feature, and the
\vi;ry low standard of education which was
adopted at the outset by the Board, have
jusiiy been regarded as very serious errors
in the management of these institutions,
livery applicant for admission is received,
"provided he is able to read and \vrit? with
any facility, and liis ability to pursue the
entire course is determined during the progress
of the session. The consequence is,
that at least two-thirds of. the young men
are dismissed on account of their nbsolute
inability to keep pace with their classes, and
are sent back to their homes without reap-.

Boiue pains been taken to provide a preparatory
tuition, nothing would have preveuted
thera froui the successful pursuit of the
entire course. Although undertaken by
individual enterprise and having no direct
connection with the Academics, the Preparatory
Military School was designed to
remedy this evil, and, as far as passible, has
been fostered and encouraged by the Board
oi visitors in order to this end. The course
of studies has been arranged mainly with
& view to subsorvo this purpose, and the
school is so conducted as to afford the opportunity
for the complete and adequate
preparation of the young men designed for
the Academic course. It might not be

Exercises in Defining, (^proposition and
tlie Drill of Squad and Company, will be
conducted throughout the course.
During the present year, until suitable
buildings can be erected for a regular gar- ,
rison school, pupils from abroad will board !
in respectable families of the town, under 1
the immediate supervision of the Princi- 1
pals: so that parents need apprehend no :
want of attention to the habits and correct '
deportment of their sons. Thn disrinlSno !
of the school-room and the boarding house
is very strict, and, ns far as wo are able to '
learn, rigidly enforced. The young men are *
required to keep regular hours and to pur- !
sue a regular habit of study and exercise, !
and being constantly under the super- '
I vision of the Principals arc prevented ''
from running into any of thos hurtful cxces- !
SOS which ton riffMi fliripni'tni'i/" 1
of the ^oarding-sehool. We have had sevcrnl
opportunities to observe the deportment ]
of the pupils, and we liavo never known
| hoys to conduct themselves in a more order- '
lv manner, and with a more strict regard to
11lie rules of decorum and propriety. The '
physical education of the pupil is rightly
deemed an important point in the, course of !
instruction; and the routine ot' drill ami
exercise is amply sufficient to provide n- 1
gainst an inordinate development, of the f
I mental over the physical constitution, and '
to secure, as far as can l><?, that very rare
yet indispensable condition to suecesa? 1
anno twits in no no cornorc. The militm-v '
exercises embrace from ono to two hours in '
each day, and are conducted in accordance !
with the regulations of the Citadel Academy.
The principals have purchased a beautiful j
plot, of l.-md in a retired and pleasant por-j.
ti<iii of the town, and are now putting lip v
temporary buildings until the. erection of
the larger and more commodious buildings '
can be effected. As soon as this desirable *
end is attained, all the pupils will be re- 1
quired to board in Commons, and to under- *
go the regular duties and he subject to the
discipline of the garrison. By this arrangement,

and very many improvements will be put |
in operation which, at the commencement .
of the enterprise, cannot readily bo effected.
We need scarcely repeat what we have j'
said on a former occasion as to the qualifications
of the Principals, ami their fitness **
for the task laid to their charge. They are

tlieui the most flattering testimonials of ,

of high tone and strictly correct deportment,
and we cordially add our testimony as to .
their qualifications for the responsible duties .
they have undertaken to perform, and their 1
fitness to direct aright the moral as well as 1
the mental and physical development of the j
young men phiccd* in their keeping.
It might not be amiss to say a word iu
rearard to the location nf
the past two or three years our town has ?
not been exempt from those epidemic diseases
which are common to every section
of the State, but, with this exception, there
is not a more healthy locality in the upcountry.
Situated exactly on the summit /
of the ridge dividing the waters of the ^
Hro:id and Catawba rivers, it is almost en- t
ureiv irco irom trie usual diseases of the *
Spring and Summer ; and persons need be ||
under no apprehensions of'the pestilences
which now and then afflict the larger towns
in the State. We have now 110 licensed
retail-shops or other vicious places of resort,
in Yorkville, and habits of intemperance are ^
indulged, if at all, clandestinely and in
violation of law. The inhabitants of the rj

Effects of Newspapers upon our Literature.
Extract from a Lccturc on JJaf/ml Poetry,
hy James Russell Lowell, at Boston.
Mr. Lowell continued: It was worth thinking
of whether the press, which we have a
habit of calling such a fine institution, be
not weakening the fibre and damaging ttio
sincerity of our English and our thinking,
^uite as fast as it diffuses intelligence. Consider
the meaning of expression?something
wrung from us by the grip of thought or
passion whether we will or no. But the
wiuoris quite as otten compelled to write
that lie may fill an empty coining as that
lie may relieve au overfilled brain. And
in a country like <>nrs, where newspapers
ire the only rending of the mass of people,
there is danger of a general contentedness
in common place. For we always become
what we habitually read. "Weletour newspapers
think for us, nrgue for us, criticise

r?araj;raplis, or items of this or that journal.
Wc are apt to wonder at tlie scholarship of
uon of two centuries ago. They were
scholars because they did not read so much
is we do. We spend more time over print
hnu tln-y <li?l, 1 ?ufc instead ofcommuning
villi the choice thoughts of choice spirits,
md insensibly acquiring the grand manner
if that supreme society, we diligently inform
nuselves of such facts as that a fine horse
belonging to Mr. Smith ran away on Wedlesday,
and that a son of Mr. lJrown Ml into
lie canal on Thursday, or that a gravel
?anlc caved in and burii-d alive Patrick 0'
Callahan on Friday, (Laughter)
It was us that were lt?*ttinir "caved in"'

Trial of Negroes.
JuutiE O'Xkal, whose opinions we always
highly respect, tlius spejiks on this
subject in a letter to the Southern Patriot,
sent from Charleston :?We
are to-day trying a question of caste.
Why does not the Legislature pass some act
regulating these cases? Uevond all doubf,
some rule, definite and certain, ought to be
adopted. In Louisiana the rule is. that one
eighth of negro blood is not enough to
make :i person mulatto. In all such eases
the party is entitled to rank as white!
The truth is, it is high time when thcro
ought to be some point fixed at which even
slavery should cease where the negro blood
is reduced so low that, the person is white,
to all human appearance.
I regret, deeply, that'our whole eo<le has
been suffered to remain for a hundred years
liable to so many revoltingobieetioiiR ?? <>
really to he foun<l in it. I hope that Rome
of the mouthers of the Legeslaturo will set
about, this work of reform. Let onr negro
law lie conformed to the principals <jf humanity,
anil then, T think, we may safely
oppose our institution of slavery to the challenge
of the worhl. There is one prominent
idea, which 1 trust, as a citizen, I may be
a'lowed to suggest: that is, that, the mode
of the trial of slaves and free negroes slum Id
not exist any longer. Trial by a magistrate

House, in ii court \vliore a judge, and some
magistrate appointed for that purpose, should
preside, and where a jury of twelve men?
to he selected, with the right of challenge,
from a pannel of twenty-four?should be
charged with the case, and in which the prisoner
should have the light of appearing and
defence by counsel.
I think, too, there is a great necessity for
a law making legally valid the marriage of
a slavo man with a free negro woman, so
that the issue may take from their mothcr
as her heirs. Beyond all doubt, too, intermarriages
betwween slaves belonging to the
HftJKf. master or mistress ought to be declared
good, and that they and their infant children,
under tfie age of fourteen, should
never be separated by sale.

Rules for the New 7car.
The following rules arc intended, mainly,
for the guidance of young men and women.
1. Get married?if you can ; hut look I
before you leap. Love matches arc roman- 1
tic?nice things to read al>out?hut they
have brimstone in them, now and then : so
says Ike Marvel I, Esq.
2. Unite in overt hrowing the fashion which
translates civility into love.
3. Go to church at least once a week.
4. "Whenever you sec a lecture advertised,
set the evening upon which it is to he delivered
apart for reading fifteen pages of a
i/ood hook. '
fi. Circulate no scandal. i
U. Avoid all kinds of spirits?particularly t
7. If in the theatre, or other public place i
of amusement, do not level your oppera glass- 1
os at strangers. *
8; Never notice the clothing of persons
attending divine worship, nor stand in front
of the house of trod after services. 1
9. Never ask a man what his business is c
?where he is going to?where he came ^

go back, or the number of his dollars. You s
may inquire as to tlio state of liis health, 1
and that of his parents, sisters and brothels 1
?but venture no further. n
10. lh'feuil the innoeent, help the poor. 11
ar..i cultivate a spirit of friendship among 1
all your acquaint uuees. ;l
11. Never speak disparinglv of women, s
and endeavor to conquer all your prejudices. ''
lielieve all persons to be sincero in the re- s
ligion which the)* profess.
l'J. 15e economical, l?ut not parsimonious '
nor niggardly. Make good use of your !i
dollars, but not idols. Live within your '
means, never borrow money in anticipation 1
of your salary. 1
J'ltici: of Lauoii at the Noutii ash
South.?It is strange that while there is n
such a decline in price of white labor at the :i
North, there continues to be a scarcity of ^
slave labor at the South, where juices are 1
exorbitantly hi?jb. The last Norfolk Armis o
"In both town and country, servants of diff- J1
erent ages bring very high prices. "Corn- 1
field" hands readily command ?125 to $150. J
In the city, cooks and house servants arc in 1
great demand, the price being ?50 to $75." c
tl.o. xt/*... v 1. t? < ' -
inu iitn iuik ij.xjni?s reiers 10 a late v
6alo of slaves in Virginia, where a woman, c
and a child eight months old, brought v
$1,310, and says it is like house rent in I
Broadway, "running the thing into the v
ground," and must produce a re-action. It J
adds: "$1,310 for a negro woman and J
child gives an interest, at? per cent., of $91.70?ai\d
this w ith life insurance, 3 per cent.
$39 30?taxes, doctors' hills, and clothing, .
and food, must run up the cost of such a f
negro to at least $225 per annum. Now we J
U:iv for our womnn sfirvnnta frnm
month which averages only $72 per annum. ?
Children we would not take with the woman J
if they were gi veu to us. The South cannot,
then, it is certain, stand for any length ''
oftimo tliis sort of competition in labor,
and the cost of negro slaves must come ?
down, decidedly down ; and hence wo give
the warning, to 'stand from under.' n
