Report of the Truant Officer.
Mr. IL P. White, Truant Officer, made his
annual reportrto the City Council last Eve
ning. From it we gather the following tacts.
The total number of persons entitled to at
tend the schools in this city, between the ages
of 4 and 21 years, is 11,023. 01 these, %££2
are between the ages oi 4 and 16 years.
The whole number attending schools the
summer term was 4,397; leaving 2,826 who
did not belong to any public school. Making
all due allowances for those attending private
schools, and those engaged in some lawful
business, It leaves the number of, probably,
1,000 who do not belong to any school and are
not engaged in any lawful occupation; most
of whom are left to gro v up in ignorance, or
are learning lessons of vice in the streets.
During the past year, Mr. White has inves
tigated over 800 cases of truancy. There have
been 83 arrested and returned to the schools
to which they belonged. A larger number
have been induced to return to their several
schools, without being arrested. Seven, who
had previously been arrested three times, yrere
complained of ta the Municipal Court as ha
bitual truants, six of whom were sentenced to
the Reform School and one put upon proba
It is evident from the report of the officer,
that his duties have been very arduous. But
we believe he ba3 performed them not only to
the satisfaction of the School Committee and
teachers, but also of parents. ^ "■ *

the tar famed Tom Thumb, who will now be
obliged to abdicate his office of Generalissimo

A Shining Example.
Constitutional Government, as administer
ed in Prussia, certainly exhibits some peculiar
features. Free legislation must be attended
with a degree of difficulty in that happy coun
try. The latest Prusian advices state that the
Chambers had suddenly been closed by order
of the Crown on the plea that the proceedings
of the Deputies in opposition to the Govern
ment tend towards strife I This summary
plan of dealing with the representatives ot the
people whenever they manifest a disinclina
tion to bend to the royal will, seems to he a fa
Vorite one in Prussia. Several times already
during the administration of Count Bismarck,
have the Deputies been scolded and sent
home like refractory schoolboys, because they
refused to legislate in accordance with govern
ment orders. Each time the people have sus
tained their representatives, and, in the new
elections, sent back men as firmly disposed to
stand for tbeir rights as those who were dis
missed. But Bismarck is a “man of nerve.*—
He considers himself, single-handed, a match
for the nation and its popular representatives,
so he once more shuts the doors of the Legis
lative Chambers, and sends the members
about their business.
This convenient method of administering ft
Constitutbnal government is undoubtedly
one of the most brilliant discoveries of our
age. In this country we have not yet got
quite so far as to put it in practice, though
there are indications that we have among us a
few master intellects capable of appreciating
its advantages. The recent suggestions of the
Cli cago Times to President Johnson, the con
tinued maundering of the New Yoit World
about the “Hump Congress,” the late Remark
able speech of Mr. Garrett Davis, in which
that gentleman delivered himself of some quite
new views on the Executive prerogative, with
other equally significant facts, show that this
heroic way of doing things i3 getting to be ap
preciated among us. It is not to be suptwseiT
that this new example of energy on the part
of Count Bismarck, will be lost upon his ad
mirers on our side of die water.- We tridy ex
pert to witness its happy effect in a notable
increase of confidence on their part, if not in
some other ways.

This little volume is one of the “Sunday School
Series of Juvenile lteligious Works,” and we do not
hesitate to pronounce it the very best ot that series
which we have yet seen. Tt is, to begin with, a fresh,
bright and truthful delineation of the characters and
thoughts of actual children, not of little prodigies;
and In addition to this it presents some charming
pictures of the scenes, habits and ways of lite belong
ing to the romantic Green Mountain district in which
the action is laid. Hetty is a dear little girl Whose
struggles are with the ordinary temptations which
children encounter, and whose growth in all the ele
ments ot a lovely character Is happily portrayed. We
advise all little folks to read “Hetty’s Hopes,” for it
is a dtory from which they may derive not only
pleasqre but profit.

The Constitutional amendment on the sub
ject of Representatives, was then taken up.—
Mr. Fessenden spoke at length in its favor,
regarding the accomplishment of negro suf
frage by indirection, as far better than by
Mr. Sumner replied, characterizing the
amendment as two-sided. The Senator frem
Maine sees in it only the limitation of politi
cal power of the South, while he, (Sumner)
sees in it the disfranchisement of a race.
Mr. Wilson made a few remarks. The
question was then stated to be on the adoption
of Mr. Henderson’s amendment, to substitute
for the pending amendment, the following
words “No State in presenting the qualifica
tions requisite for election therein, shall dis
srimlnate against any person on account of
race or color.” It was rejected, yeas 10, nays

manner reeoginizing any distinction between
Citizens of the United States or any State or
Territory on account of race or color or the
previous condition of slavery, and hereafter
ail citizens without distinction of race or color
.hall he protected in the Ml enjoyment and
exercise of ail their civil and political rights
including the rightof suffrage.
Mr. Clark moved to amend the above by
adding the following: “provided that when
ever the elective franchise shall be abridged
in any State, or the election of Representa
tives to Congress, or other officers, State or
National, on account of race or color, or de
scent, or previous condition of servitude, or
by any provision of the law, not equally ap
plicable to all races and descent, all persons of
such race, color, or descent, or condition shall
be excluded from the basis of representation

submitted to the legislatures of the several
States next hereafter to be chosen. Bejected

Mr. Sumner moved to amend the Commit
tee’s proposition by inserting a proviso that
there shall be no denial of the elective fran
chise on account of color. Bejected—8 against
Mr. Sumner moved to amend the proposi
tion of the Committee by inserting “ that all
persons denied representation shall be exempt
from taxation of all kinds.” Bejected.
The question was then taken on the propo
sition of the Committee.

ment, and the joint resolution as it came
irom the House was lost, there not being two
thirds in its favor. The vote was as follows:

Stockton, Sumner, Van Winkle, Willey, Yates
The Chair announced that the joint resolu
tion having received less than two-thirds of
the votes had failed.
Mr. Henderson moved a reconsideration of
the vote, which prevailed.
This brought the joint resolution again be
fore the Senate, and Mr. Doolittle offered the
following amendment:
“ That the following articles be proposed to
the legislatures of the several States as amend
ments to the Constitution of the United
States, which when ratified by three-fourths
of said legislatures shall be va'kl as a part of
jaul Constitution, namely: After the census
to be taken in 1870, and each., succeeding ceu
.us, representatives shall be apportioned
among the several States according to the
number in each State of male electors over 21
years of age, qualified by the fews thereof to
choose members of the most numerous branch
ot its legislature, and direct taxes shall be ap
portioned among the several States according

Mr. Stevens moved to raise the tax on bitu

ine Rogers, Capt. Yeaton, from Providence,
R. L, with 290 tons of coal, from Elizabeth
port, for New York, went ashore in a gale, on
Cornfield Point Shoals, off Westbrook, and
sunk. The captain and crew were saved by
heroic eflorts on the part of Capt. Man war
ring and his men of the Government light
boat stationed on the shoals. The brig will
probably be a total loss. The Catherine Rog

and hailed from that port.

The news from the frontier indicates po
cause for eitfaordinary movement, but the
military authorities and the whole people ap

the hubbub is got up for political purposes to
unite the opposing taetiohs so (hat confederar

If this is really the object of the Government,
it probably will be successful, for all parties
