Rev. L. N.. Bradshaw, Principal.
THE session of the Institute will com-

sorship of the Rev. J. M. Bradshaw, who

The Trustees In making this announce
ment would most especially appeal to all
citizens who have daughters to educate,
to send to thl3 institution. Mr. Bradshaw
has had charge of the school for the last
ten months, during which time he has
rendered ample, and we might say, uni
versal satisfaction to the Trustees, pa
trons and pupils. There never was a bet
ter time for men to educate their daugh
ters than now money is plenty every
thing a farmer raises bears two prices,
and the tuition to this school is the same
that it was when everything was at low
figures. What excuse can there be now
for a man who neglects to educate his
daughters? None. Because here in
Cleveland, a healthy locality, we have an
Institute, with tjn excellent instructor,
aided by a sufficient corps of assistants,
to Instruct all who may favor it with
their patronage. Let one and all put their
shoulder to the wheel and build up such
a school as will be of incalculable benefit
to us and an honor to our town. We have
the building and we have the teacher
tha hnlnnptt dnvnlvpa on the DeoDle. We
hope they may nobly perform their duty.
The Trustees are thankful to the citizens
for the patronage bestowed upon "Mr.
Bradshaw heretofore, and are glad to
know that under his administration the
Institution has not lost any of the envi
able reputation it sustalnled in "the bet
ter' days of the Republic."

Aug. 8,
Col. Revere, of the Seventh New Jer
sey regiment, has recently addressed a
letter to Governor Ogden, In which he
points out the folly of forming new reg
iments when the old so greatly need
filling up. He nays:
"With all due respect to the opinions
of others, I am In favor of Immediate
drafting from the militia, en masse, and
the Ailing up of our shattered regiments
now In the field, so much reduced by
the ravages of war, In preference to
raising new regiments, which cannot be
prepared for the field in less period than
six months.
"It would be most unwise to send
these raw regiments, without drill or
discipline, even If they can be recruited
In time to enable the armies now In the
field to assume the offensive, to meet
the rebel regiments of trained and val
iant troops, who may be ranked among
the best soldiers in the world, as all our
army can testify who have met them In
the recent great battles of the Penin
sula. "The best composition of a jreglment,
In the view of military men, is probably
one-fourth of old soldiers, both by ex
ample and precept. Thus constituted,
the regiments of the army of the Po
tomac would be irresistible, and its
force and power in war be far superior
to any force the rebels can bring Into
the field.
"The officers of that army have now
field of war and any lack vihem can
be easily supplied from theraJks of the
volunteers, which contain a ( plentiful
supply of active, Intelligent and am
bitious young soldiers, Inured to the
hardships of campaigning, an imbued,
In a great measure, with the" epirit of
military Institutions. Besides, we have
the traditions of the regiment ? already
to excite the ambition and prKte of the
new recruits, who would mur rather
belong to a regiment wklch (inscribes
'Williamsburg,' 'Fair Oaks,' 'Malvern,'
etc., to Its colors, than to a new1 one, en
tirely unknown to fame.
"The superior advantage already ac
quired by drill and discipline are too
apparent to be recommended, vrhile the
saving to the government in every way
is something enormous, as one regiment
of veterans filled up with recruits in
the proportion of one In three or four cf
old soldiers, represents a military power
of as one to two, as the least, When
compared with a force composed en
tirely, as our new regiments cannot fall
to be, of raw officers and soldiers, en
tirely uninured to war, and who have
not received th baptism of fire."
"The saving of the number of officers
is also to be taken into the account, un
less the country is more plethoric of
wealth than would seem to be the case
at present."
The last Is a point that does not seem
to get proper consideration. The regi
ments now in the field, have In general a
fair, if not full complement of officers,
who draw pay whether they havr men
to command or not. JTo fill up their
comwiands would be to make use of
these experienced and valuable officers;
bu instead of that, It seems to be pre
ferred to create a new army list of in
experienced men, coating the govern
ment double what It ought," for half ser
vice. The nation has a right to demand
that no such waste of means shall be
pvrmittqd. :'
Col. Revere says that to prepare a
new army for the field will require six
months. Have we much time to throw
away? To recruit the armies now in
the flld is a work wWeh could be done
in one month, with proper efforts. The
80,600 men already said to be twilisted,
and most of whom are. we fear, waiting
for refclments to be completed, would
be of gret and lasting "value If they
could at once be sent down to Pope not
as freeh and distrained regiments, but
In the shape at recruits to join Ms vet-
erans and be mixed with them. Thirty
thousand men, healthy and vigorous, In
the hands of an enterprising general,
might serve to turn the tide of victory
airnln In our favor. Rut If they are
kept at home, If they enter the field a
mass of undisciplined recruits, with of
ficers as Ignorant as theclmvses. if they
must be painfully and tediously drilled
for months before they can bo taken
Into action then the generals who
want to push on the war must do so
without counting on the new levies, and
the brave fellows who have already
born the brunt of the contest must bear
It yet longer dissatisfied.
Every consideration of Justice to
those in the field, the encouragement of
those about to enter, speedy reinforce
ments of jur armies, economy in means
as well as time everything points to
the necessity of using the new levies to
fill up the regiments now in the field
and yet, though time Is precious and
the enemy presses, our state authorities
do not seem to realize the necessity of
the hour, but continue a mode of enlist
ment which wastes both time and
cd. They cannot get back to their
homos, and never will. If the war was
ended, and arrangements made for
their return, they could not live here.
They would be looked upon and treated
an torles.loathed and despised, forsaken
even by the cowardly wretches who
pursuaded them to. leave their homes
and dear ones for a situation In the
Federal army. Those of them that
have left property behind have forfeited
It to their government, and their fami
lies will be bereft of It. Who Is respon
sible for this state of things? Such
men as Andy Johnson, Horace May
nard, Bill Brownlow, and the smaller
lights of lorylsm, who were suffered to
run over the country and preach trea
son to the people. In this county such
pettifoggers as Mitch Edwards and Dr.
Brown were applauded for their treach
ery, while men who were older and
wiser were scoffed and hooted at for
their loyalty. These vile mtscreants
are now receiving their Just reward at
the hands of an Indignant people.
There never was a more Just retribu
tion visited upon a corrupt set of men.
They sowed the storm let them receive
the fury of the whirlwind. They de- 1
serve It. They have no home, and are

(From the London Times.)
By this time the battle before Rich
mond has been as fully discussed as the
meagerness of the news received by tel
egraph will allow. The Impression
which this great military event has
made on English society is not to be
luisutkeii. if inert-' were un beliro .who
thought that the resistance of the
South was likely to be overcome by the
exploits of General McClellan's army
before Richmond, they are now unde
ceived. It cannot be doubted tlxit a
battle of the highest Importance has
been fought, and that the Federal army
has been thrown back - a considerable
distance several miles Indeed from
its former position.
But if the Virginia campaign has end
ed in a manner which shows that the
Confederates are able to carry oh a long
war, the fighting at Charleston shows
that, even at isolated points, they 'are
prepared to receive an enemy. The
ambiguity of the telegraph prepared us
to believe that the battle before Char
leston ended In a victory Tor the South.
The thing is now made clear. A Fed
eral general, plainly Ignorant of the en
emy he was to attack, and the defenses
he wjas likely to meet, advanced with
some 1,200 men to the attack of a bat
tery, and he seems to have been as
completely defated as the British were
at New Orleans, and perhaps much In
the same manner.
The moral to be deducted from these
events is clear. There is probably at
the present moment, In Europe, but a
single society where the defenders of
this hateful and atrocious war could
nike themselves heard. The impartial
opinion of every civilized nation Is be
ing more and more strongly expressed
against the enterprise in which the
Federals are embarked. The orators of
the Northern States may Inveigh as
much as they please against the inter
ference of-England, and the mob may
shout scorn of England advice and de
fiance of English arms; but English
Kopinion is, after all, the opinion of the
world, and we may hope-.that, in spite
of affected Indignation and highllown
