Remark* of Mr. Wasson of Surry,
IN HOUSE OF KEPUKSENT ATIVES Feb.
on t!i#* motion to rt*< onai(b-r the vote whereby He
solve in favor of Wilton Academy wan pMaed to
be eugiot^eil :
Mr. Speaker :—When this resolve was
under consideration on Wednesday last, 1
was wiving soine of tin reasons which
would influence my vote, when,as doubtless
arranged by the programme, the previous
question was spnmg upon us to stifle de
bate.
Before resinning the thread, broken by
the fall of the Speaker’s gavel, I say,
that I do not believe in the hasty use of
arbitrary parliamentary rules simply to
gain some petty advantage, lively such
movement mince- a tear, that something
which does not appear upon the face of the
proposition under discussion, may lie dis
covered and exposed by the light of de
bate.
The first reason 1 assign for my vote
to-day, is that the State is too poor to go
out into the '‘highways and hedges’’ to
look for objects of charity.
The gentleman from Augusta lias
told us in most vehement tones that
the "Stan; is rich, and not at all embarrass
ed.'' With our 'hipping interest destroyed,
our forests swept away, our public lands
gobbled up. our Slate shackled with a
debt of inure sM.OoO.UOO.our municipalities
with enormous balances againstthem, and
our i>. ojde groaning under the weight of
onerous taxes—where is our wealth ?
Where <?/v our riches’:*
lo-tmy W" an- running me government
on money borrowed, lor which we are
paying an minimi interest of nearly a half
a million dollar-1. The very money we
propose to donate to these institutions, is
not ours to {five. It is borrowed, every
dollar of it. ,\i the close of this session,
after rv c have {.iven our time and labor to
the Mate, because she is too poor to pay
for it—the little pittance we may receive
to liquidate in part our board bill, will be
borrowed. 4\ by, a few days since the
State was too poor to afford us even a few
portage stamp—too poor to donate a few
dollars to n dying member. Has any
••heir-loom" hut that ufpoierty descended
1 tO Us?
I hear it reported ‘‘that the State is rich,
and can afford out of the abundance of its
riches, to gi\ e to these ttatcment-of-j'act
acadeviies, a liberal share.” Let us
examine the estimated expenditures for
the year upon which we have entered,
and see if the “circumstances of the peo
ple authorize” tiic endowment of these
intermediate seminaries. The people of
the State must be assessed $97,000 on the
sinking fund of 1805, $80,000 on that of
180,s, ooo for indigent soldiers, $59,
('00 for insane persons, $14,000 for the He
lium School, $ to,000 for the Agricultural
College. $490,000 for interest; or $1,909,
940; equal to $ 1.81 to each inhabitant in
the State.
Talk about the State's being rich, when
the Treasurer i- issuing paper currency by
the cart-load, when our Statu bombs are
under jiur \alue, and holders are com
pelled to sell them at a iliscmtnt.
Gentlemen tells in “that we must speak
these things softly—it must not be heard
beyond the coniines of the State, else air
railroads will not be extended and our
water power utilized." Let us, i say, tell
the truth, and back it up by business like
evidences of financial sanity.
We are poor—the evidences are too nu
merous iu shin-plasters spread all over the
Mate—the utmu-t farthing of which must
be redeemed by excessive taxation. Wo
have been told in sneering tones that
“taxation was not so very burdensome.'’
Those who at ail themselves of the doubt
ful honesty of investing in government
In nds out ol the way ot and i eyoml the
reach of taxation, may escape the burden.
Hut to tins sweating mows anil oiisterea
hands, tugging and toiling to earn an
honest penny to meet the inexorable de
mands of the tax-collector, it becomes no
“play-dav dream.” And we have thous
ands' in our Sine to-day who have not
solved that most trying > ruble in of their
lives, lnov to raise money to pay their tax
es. And that \ cry money which some of
them hate mortgaged their last cow to
raise, we are u-h< d to give to institutions,
which purposely created a debt for the
State to wipe out.
Let us look at facts as they are. To pay
the Stal tax for 1S7U, requires a per capita
tax oi ifl.lis. The county tax will inert use
it to sjtl.oo—add the municipal taxes, and
we have a tax of tJ.VJtl to every man,
woman, and child in the State, or a tax of
Sct-MiO p-r family, yet guiltless of the act
of fashionable murder.
Supi rintendout Johnson has been quoted
'as “backing’’ these claim- by his ojficiai
endorsement. Says the Maine Farmer,
“when he rolled up Ids sleeves and enter
ed upon his ilulithe resolved not to em
ploy his time in n lining over the different
1 luises of spoi ial culture.” 1 can blit hope
lie hits not abandoned that resolve, and
“rolled down his sleeves," for if so, our
common schools are w it bout a head.
It is said by tin* advocates of these State
aid institutions, “that we need them to lit
teachers for the common schools.” 1 re
ply, that we want them for no such pur
pose. Our district schools have been
with this class of unmethodical, unskilled,
and superficial “masters” and “mistress
es,” long enough. We have had enough
of this kind of teachers, too many of whom
possessed but lew accomplishments be
yond that of patience to worry through the
district term, distribute “rewards of mer
it” at the close, and pocket our money.
\gain, the necessity, did it exist, of cn
dowitig such seminaries, is fully met in
the Normal Schools, which are answering
: all almost universal call for a class of
trained teachers, practically and seientifi
, fully acquainted with the best principles
of teaching,
The method which the friends of these In
stitutions have chosen to push their pet pro
jects through this House, is open to objection.
No one -lands on its own merits. When,
a few days since, we were cajoled into the
belief that the Female Seminary had a le
gal claim. 1 suspected, what is now to bo
seen, that it was only the “billet-head" of an
“omnibus” bill, halt of the body ot which is
now before us. Within the last few day* a
perfect shower of “statement of facts" has
