the ii:i(oiiiin.i,ly three attacks to which it had

pardens! lan antsy t<> " a wiso ead Indielona sya
Liu of general edumtton bf ndequsle appropri
Btioa from the National mveaaos vrhenever thc
gams is seeded."
That Rational pledge was not for a new ned
lint ned policy, but for one in accord with thr
conns..is of oar pr. at. statesmen from Washington
to Lincoln. Grant, and Garfield, and with n
line of Nnti mil preoed nts which ni I ide
ts of hnni. land-scrip, and money. The mem*
<r.iLlo division nmorj tho Stales in 1 Ul of thc
aargdaa af *tte\aag,eag was an allagasent fraught
with advaatag* pronoaaead mid puBsaaaat to
thu Behool System of the Statis, and Milmiland
thc inti Iii gent j.ride and energy of ths people
iii its behalf. Tho RepahBeaa pledge was also
in accord with a Inter grant of moneys amount ina
lo gii.l.ou.ooo to the Free. Ima us Butene, nnd
still more recently of $100,000 to the institute
nt Hampton ead Carlisle. That pledge has been
forgotten neither by tho country nor by the
Southern States. It, was sure to bc recalled in
the Bpaanaehiug Presidential canvass; nnd to
be compared with tbe malua nf ths party on
Ibis bill. It certainly seems regretable when
"The Evening Post" iu Its Ingenious, persistent
nnd skilfully arrnnged ssaaulta inion the bill,
had advised the Northern Republicans to oppose
it, that Bepublleaa Senators should have been
led tor auy reason to adopt the (nurse so recom
no lided, erass it branght them int-u eoaJUm with
the settled policy and the National pledge ni
the Republican party.
Thu Senate bill, ns Mr. Evatts showed in his
recent masterly argument, accords in its character
and in the wisdom and regulation of its methods
with the judicious and successful sehesae of tho
Peabody fund. It. has had the advantage of
a stngumrly thorough seruttay and revision by
the most u. < omplisln d BtateaSSOU of all s.-etions
aivd of both parte*! iii Ike Senate, and of sdueu
1i.>n.il BS perte throughout, the land. It stands
as the perfected embodiment of the Republican
plod ga te all sections ,f the Republic. It- was
pledged first to thc South, which is appealing for
National assistance against the illiteracy result?
ing from slav -ry, but made a double burden and
n National dfingtr by (.ur conversion of the slaves
Into ettlsena with aovexeign power. Next, it wan
a pledge to tho North. East nnd West, which
nro viewing with solicitude rising sometimes
olmost, to dismay, tho mult it udo of foreign il?
literates representing inferior forms of cvili/.a
tion, which, with tho vicious and un-American
heresies based on ignorance, despotism, and super?
stition end defying American principles, laws
nnd constdutions, threaten to vitiate and under?
mine Ihe American civilization which Mr. Orestes
A Broarnson pronounced " the fiirthest point
in sdreni ? m yel reached by any sgc or nation."
In the great Christian Conference held at
Waahiagton, in December, leprcaentlng million*
(,f our most InteRigent, far-sighted and thought?
ful citizens, native and naturalized, no opinion
WM hulled with more perfect unanimity than
that, our prevailing illiteracy nnd Ignorance,
whether nilen ot domestic, unless corrected, puri?
fied and Americanized in the children by out
common schools, will convert, the suffrage itsell
into the Bama daagemus nen poo arith which
the foes of American liberty, who are now so
desperal -ly attacking our common school system,
gan Uadenaiae our press and our institutions, and
overthrow mir civil nnd religious freedom.
The pledge of thc Republican party to favor
an adequate appropriation from ths National
?avenue had hal one condition, " Whenever the
same was needed* ; and that flint time had come
?was shown in the Menota, especially in the latter
part of January, by proofs of willoi, it would
seem as if thc learned and diminguisbed college
presidents had never boca advised, for their
nrgum nts seemed to proceed on the assumption
that the Soutb was in uo need nf assistance and
only required to bc left alone, to educate every?
body >>y self-help. F.very auggestieu and opinion
in favor of the ability of the South to cojic with
illiteracy alone, nnd anion;; them was the rather
guarded opiates cf General Ai anal nmg as to " tho
evident ability of so-called border States to edu?
cate, pot .it the present time, but in a reasonable
time, all tlnir children," were Completely an?
swered nnd swept away by the testimony of the
highest edumttenul czparta and the most intelli?
gent and well-informed citizens throughout the
Southern Staten This testimouy was confirmed
by the frightful statistics of the last census,
showing tint illiteracy matead of being arrested
had Increased1 and was increasing, lind thal South?
ern States with tb' ir best efforts pushed to the
extreme limit of ability could not stay the pro
gross of illiteracy and of tho barbarism which at?
tends it without the aid of the Nutional Govern?
ment.
" The Charleston (S. CJ News aud Courier,"
Deeembet, l?s7, say* of the Rlair bill:
Every dav shows nioro and moro the need of
some such law. every year that is lust means
mi many mete ignorant and da ti (.'or* ms voters who

Dr. Curry, long distinguished as tito agent of
the Peabody School Fund, nud now our Minister
lo Spain, who may rank as thc very Idgheet au
tborVty on the subject, says, and be Ls Blanking
of thg children, not of the adults:

Mr. Henry Coleman, a county school odnmilv
stoner, writes from Eastman. Ga.: " Unless Na?
tional uld is given the public school system is
iu danger.'1
Mr. C. D. Nieholns, of Mobile, Alfi, writes
that the States uro doing as well as it is possible
for them to clo, but that "their inability to meet
the di mauds upon lln-ni is Very plainly shown by
' tho fact that there is no diminution in the num?
ber af the illitor'to in proportion to our growing
country, but nit br an increase."
Mr Prank J Wise, re'irately of tho c hool
Board of the City et Pun IllulT. Arl;., writes:
The annual increase of jilin racy In the country.
particularly ra the ud-ton-growtng States. js bj
Hiv opinion an Indisputable and lamentable fuel.
I believe the census .>r 1880 will show it. . . . If
it be true that igaornnoe is displacing intelli?
gence, which is tbe basis of our institutions, it la
a question paramount to all others.
From Texas, of wins,, ability and BMBWdfteunt
school fund so mu ii is saul, Professor Hogg of
Fort- Worth says:
Illiteracy is increasing nt a fearful mle even
among the white cit i/..ns of Texas. In
ism them wera only 17,605 illiterate
white vol. rs bin in I SOO then were 83,085.
Them you hive thc stnrtling increase of white
voting Texans of BO p"r sent. The colored illit?
erates number 47,285 voters in ls70 und 66,498
in 1880, an inereese nf ZO t?er cent.
This evil.nc and stat isl os show thal al this timi
the aid pledged hy the BepubllcuB patty is needed,
the pledge is binding; and tho Southern people
erith .singular unanimity demand the promised
assistance. Cue objection that might, perhaps
have been raised at an earlier period with some
plausibility, that the South had nd- yet learned
to appreciate the public school system, and that
the funds given them for the local management
might be wasted or misused, is now c*duded by
tho clear teat iinony ol Gem ral Armstrong to " thc
Vigar; of sentiment existing in ibo South in favor
of the public school system:" to "the important
devotion to it of many cx-Conf. derate slave holders
urhteh I have personally witnessed:".te '' tho fact
1 that it is hopeless and ratal for any politician,
I whatever his standing, to oppose it, the negro
: vote Hading rta chief excuse In the solidity with
which it goes for free schools."
'J'liis settles tbe question that there will be no
misuse of the fund, aid it helpc to dispose also
I of the singularly unplnlosopinial argument that
tho temporary national aid proposed by the bill
will demoralize the South, discourage self-help,
' destroy their ScB-reHsnee, humble them to n tow
I level of mendicancy, impair the State manhood,
and injure instead of benefiting tbe cause of ed
I oration. Congress voted a gold meda] to Mr.
I Peabody for Ins gift of fifteen millions, and of the
I great goodelready accomplished sad now going on
from that private charity, Hie Hon. M. C. Win?
throp, a strong advocate of the Dlair bill, has
written; and Cnn, ral Armstrong wrote that it
had toni for negro education " a tn mendoua mere
tal and moral result." Thc methods of the Bleir
bill welt fmmed on those of the Peabody lund . its
annual quota to each State cannot exceed the
amount rasied by that Stan-, thus encouraging
self-help by doubling its results. The payment
Judiciously arranged with a view io Bole State
support alter temporary assistance ol eight year*,
conns not, from private charity, but from the
national treasury from which New-York nnd Mass?
achusetts ami the other Suites have diawa their
quota of sasistanee not as modicums but as equal
Statis, with no diminution of Slate pride, no
abatement of life and energy and effort ni behalf
nf ta munni schools, but with great advantage
in their rapid and permanent Improvement,
lt does not. sci in tu have occurred tn tb'- Hillside
assail, rs of the Blair 'nil who in succession have
fud ard it "a lull to promote medicancy," that the
taunt, and sneer so defiantly Hung al the Southern
States burdcued with their millions of ignorant
blacks whom tho nation has placed among the
sovereign rulers of the Republic, and whom we
lisle them, exhausted as they have been, to educate
at their own on peii.se?that the sue -r was not only
unjust, ungenerous and un-American, but tina if
it could have had the slightest force as regurds
the South, it would be a sarcasm, ju-t and bit
tai and crushing, to every Northern State winch j
had perfected ita common school system by tho
assistance of th* Nation.
Will either the North or the South appreciate
the argument that the grunt in this ease would
be unconstitutional, when that (mint, is urged by
Senator* or Representatives, by editors, or by col
Use presidents belonging to States whose citizens
poiut with pride to their admirable school houses, i
trained teacher* and improved methods; all as- j
skated by hinds and money under similar grants; j
accepted spain nnd again without a suggestion !
that thc grants were unconstitutional ? Arc there ;
to be two rules for the construction of the cou- j
stitution, ono by which the North has been as- i
Steted and unother by which the South will be
made lo bear ulone the education of a race tu- '
franchised by tbe ii it.ioL P
It is true that some distinguished friends of
American education have hastily and at the last :
roment joined in Ihe sraaade against the bill; '
it has without doubt been chiefly due to a com- I
perte misunderstanding of thc belpteesaeas of the I
Sooth, of the impending dancer to the nation, and
of the very guardid nnd Judicious provisions of
tho bill. Others more familiar with tbe fact may
las honestly govern**! by a desire to correct at I
whatever (Dst what they hold to lie crrouoous j
theories of government, without regard to the j
practice of the nation. But the chief opponents
Sf this auenipt to aid to thu establishment of !
the common school system in tho South are those !
who desire the destruction of the common school
system as the bulwark of Che republic aud ol its j
civil and religious freedom.
Thc war ugainst the bill will bc continued;
and as one argument, fails others will bo invented. !
Winn the Northern people find that tho consti?
tutionality of the bill has been proven by Southern
Senators from thg works not simply of JciTorsou,
Madison, Mourne, Stroll;.', aud Kent, but even
of Calboun, they will probably be met by appeals
to save hhs Southern States from having their
I right* invaded and overthrown by thc encroacdi
i mentis of tho National Government seeking to
| chauges and control their established systems of
j common schools. Those who have read on this
I point Hie speech of Mr. Li arts or that of Mr.
Pugh, of Alabama, a member of the commilU'C
i who reported the Bluil bill, will understand tina
! Inst dosi],:, and il.as. who have not may perhaps
j trust the Southe ia State* in their jealousy of
! aattonal centralization nnd evn;roa*?hnient ut?on j
j Stat* rights, and recall the leading provision of
; the bill that each State cnn ncoept or refuse thc '
amount* ol the quota; whmh avonis the aiigbUst !
pressure upon any one of them. Can any one j
suppose that American orin, iph* will permit I
sucb un unequal gRine; that rugged American
common sense cnn bc ut all confused or misled
by technical glosses on so plain a point; that
Aincrieun pride will tolerate a policy so double
tooed-and so singularly ignoble, tit st, to tl?e rooe that
Lincoln cuv.ncipatcd, and whom neither Lincoln
nor (Irani would have lett in iKnoraiiCe.and next to?
ward our Southern countrymen who are doing
their best to stem thc tide of illiteracy, and ask
thc national aid that WO ourselves have received'.'
Thc history of t-tnaiicipaUuu torbul* such a blot
upon its close; u vast majority of tim American
|x opie will resent a policy which by ll* sLabbiucas
impugus their honor.
Let the House of Representative* pass the bill
and let every Repnblicnn share that honor willi
its Democratic supimrters with tho feeling that the
duty rests especially upon thc Republicans, glace
thc Democratic party docs not rest under the
same rcs ponai In li ly for thc elevation of Otu colored
moe. If ttof oousliUitiiaiaJity of the ucl is qos
tiona bio let the donleen, teat the queel mu iu the
Supreme Court, the proper tribunal for it* de
cisiou, und when that court shall decide we shall
not have one rule for the North and ila reverse
for the South, one for ono decade and its op?
posite for unother, but wc shall have for all sec?
tions and for all time, the same rule of equal
justice atiiioumvd with decent dignity, without
invective., taunt or jeer. Should the law lie de?
feated In the House ot Representatives by Ke
publican votes, where will tho Republican jmrty
stand-when they again face the issuo in the com?
ing Presidential rlectiou presented by a largely
united Mouth, inxl by millions of tbe Northern
masai-a, who propose thai SouUu.ru children elute
and black and the children of foreigners through?
out the land shall all enjoy Hm right to nu Amer?
