Meeting of the Scheel Heard. , A stated meeting of tlie beard of direct ors of Lancaster school district was held in common council chamber last evening. Tlie following named members were present.

Mr. Baker, from the superintending committee, reported verbally that the schools were opened September 1st and referred te arrangements made te accom modate pupils, as has been hcietoferc stated in the Intklt.ickn'cei:, Mr. Evans, from the finance committee, presented the following bills, which were ordered te be paid. Abraham Maxwell, whitewashing, &c, fc3; Gee. "W. Beck, whitewashing, and cleaning, $10 ; Jeseph Samson, brushes, $15.30; Samson Rush & Sen, hauling ashes, $1; JehnB. Reth and Edw. J.

Senscnderfer, whitewashing, $25; Widmyerand Rickscckcr, repairing desk, 75 cents. On motion of Mr. Evans, A. K. Warfcl, the present collector, was unanimously re elected te collect the unpaid school tax. Mr. J. I. Ilartman, from the school prop erty committee made a verbal report that the necessary repairs had been made dur ing vacation te the several school houses ; a lire escape had been attached te tlie sec ondary school building at Prince and Chest nut streets, and the stairway hadjbeen re modeled with a view te the greater securi ty of the children in case of lire, or ether sudden danger, lie also moved that tem porary partitions be placed in the Lemen street shoel houses, te avoid the confusion incident te the recitations of the several classes. This prevision is made necessary because of the demolition of the class rooms of these school houses, te make room for the new building new in eourse ofxicctien. The motion was unanimously agreed te. Mr. D. G. Baker made some objection te the recent improvements of the Prince street school building and suggested cer tain alterations which he thought would make the building meic safe in case of a fire or ether cause of excitement. He ob jected especially te the outside doers be cause they did net open outwardly. Mr. Ebcrly asked if it was net a fact that the outside doers of the high school building, all of which opened outwardly, were net all kept locked, except one. Mr. Baker said if such was the case it was wrong and should be corrected. Mr. J. I. Ilartman, from the special committee te purchase a site for a school building in the northwest division, report ed that the committee had purchased from E. J. Zahm and Jehn B. Reth, i let en West James street for the sum of $2,100, the let being 13CJ by 150 Teet. On motion of Dr. Lcvcrgoed the action of the committee was approved, the thanks eftthc beard were extended te them and the committee was discharged. Dr. Lcvcrgoed, from the committee en rules, reported that the manuscript of the rules adopted at the last meeting of the beard was in the hands of the printer, lie stated that the committee had been at con siderable trouble in hunting up the several laws relating te school atlairs, which the beard had directed te be printed with the rules, and there were se many of them, extending ever a period of thirty years, and many of them having been repealed, that the committee had come te the con clusion that it would be impracticable te print them. lie moved therefore that the action of the beard ordering the acts of Asscmblyte be printed in connection with the rules be rescinded, and that the rules of the beard be printed without them. Mr. Ebcrly said that there had never been a resolution passed by the beard that all the laws relating te the schools should be printed. The resolution passed provid ed simply for the printing of the act of 1850 and the amendments thereto. These arc net numerous, could be collated in half a day, and would net occupy many pages of the pamphlet of rules. Mr. McCemscy speke at some length, giving a historical sketch of the special school laws passed by the state Legislature for forty years past, and showing that nearly all the previsions of the special laws had been repealed or embodied in the general school law. 3Ir. Ebcrly stated that if any previsions of the law of 1S50 or its supplements had been repealed they would be indicated by a star. He regarded it as important te have the law printed in connection with the rules of the 'beard, se that all might knew what the law was. Messrs. Baker, Ilartman and McCom McCem sey speke against the printing of the act of 1850, and in favor of a codification of the school laws. After further discussion the motion te print the law of 1850, in connection with the rules of the beard, was reconsidered and rescinded. The resolution presented at a former meeting of the beard previing that Lan caster school district join with ether plain tiffs in a suit against the Inland insurance aud deposit company, te recover money lest by the failure of that institution, was taken up for consideration. Mr. Wilsen opposed the resolution. lie said the debts of the institution at the time of its failure were $122,000, of which sum 43 per cent, had been paid. The claim of the school beard was $1-1,611. Most of the ether claims were small and divided amongst a great many depositors, some of whom were net financially respon sible. If a lawsuit were commenced the school beard would be obliged te pay most of the costs. He believed the money was irredeemably lest aud there was no hope of recovering it from the directors of the defunct institution, nearly all of them being cither dead or insolvent. Mr. Jehn I. Ilartman moved te refer the resolution te the judiciary committee of the beard winch will be appointed under the new rules recently adopted. Jlr. D. G. Baker thought it would be useless te engage in the proposed suit, which could result in nothing but costs te be paid by the beard. All or nearly all the directors of the Inland were dead or insolvent, except Mr. Nisslcy and the es tate of Gen. J. L. Reynolds. It could net be shown that the beard of directors in office at the time the Inland)failcd,had ever been legally elected, or that they had com mitted any official wrong. If they were guilty of any offense it was an act of emis sien te faithfully perform their official duty, and for this emission they could only be reached by an action of tort ; and an action of tort will net held after the death of the defendant. There had been a won derful fatality among the Inland directors Boyd, Reynolds, Muhlenberg and ethers are dead, and the only one living whose estate is worth anything is Mr. Nissley, and he did net believe that a suit against him could be successfully maintained. Mr. Morten speke briefly in favor of pushing the suit. The school beard and ether creditors have lest large sums of money through the mismanagement of the directors of the Inland. These directors, or their legal representatives arc responsible for the losses. There can be no harm done in trying te recover the money due. There will be no costs attached te the suit except office costs, as one of the best lawyers at the bar is willing te prosecute the suits without fee or reward, unless the money is recovered, in which case he wants 30 per cent, of the amount recovered, and this 30 per cent, can be paid out of the interest that has accrued en the money claimed. The office costs would be light; and a due proportion of them be berne by the ether claimants, some of whom he knows inti mately, and knows them te be responsi ble. Dr. Lcvcrgoed moved te lay the whole matter en the table, and the motion was agreed te all the members present voting "aye" except Messrs. Harris, Johnsten, and Morten, who voted "no." The secretary was authorized te have certain blank forms prntcd for the use of the city superintendent aud teachers. Mr. Wilsen read a letter from Dr. Brown in which he asks permission te examine free of charge the eyes of the pupils of the pub lic schools with a view of ascertaining the proportion among them that have defective vision and te ascertain the causes thereof. Dr. Brown enumerated the diseases of the cycte which children are subject and showed the disadvantages under which salesmen, lilread conductors, (engineers and ethers labor under by being near-sighted or color blind. Mr. Wilsen offered a resolution granting permission te Dr. Brown te make the ex aminations suggested, providing they did net interfere with the pupils' studies. Dr. Lcvcrgoed opposed the resolution. If permission were granted te Dr. Brown ether professional gentlemen would make similar applications te examine their tceth,thc bumps en their heads, their corns and ether parts of their body. He moved te lay the resolution upon the table. The application of Mr. Smcltz, joint owner with the school beard and the Evan gelical church, of a pump and well en North Mulberry street, asking that the pump and well may become his exclusive property en certain conditions, was referred te the property committee with instructions te report. Adjourned. Onr Rural Public Schools. Fer tllC iNTKLLIOKXCKIt. " Frem education, as tlicleadins e.iu-e. The public character its color draws." While fully appreciating and prizing our popular system of education, knowing what a great blessing it is te 'countless thousands " of peer girls and boys all ever our land, realizing what a bonanza it has been te past, is te present and will un doubtedly be te future generations of youth, laying for them the foundation of education they would net receive but for it, yet ene cannot help observing, if wc tike the trouble and it is a lamentable fact that se few de take the trouble te examine and study the workings and results of enr country public schools, that they will frequently be found defic ient; and we will often be surprised te find se little geed coming from seme of them, from which we expected no mere than they ought te produce There arc no doubt various causes for these evils, seme of which should only be seen te be removed. Others there are per haps that arc parts of the system itself, as 'nothing is perfect ;" and if we would un dertake te cure them it might have te be done te the undoing of some ether parts that were worse than what we improved. But it is net these little incurables that we fear, although wc should watch and guard against them. It is the diseased pails that can be cured, that are se much diseased often because of inattention, te which we wish te apply the balm and scalpel.. Our school directors are nominated te the office because the party ewes them some little mark of distinction for seme lit tle service they have done the party.heping some time te be thus rewarded. There is no pay in being a school director, but it is that incstimable prize a public a Hair. Then our directors arc elected because they are Republicans or Democrats, net because they are at all interested in educa tion or arc likely te labor with honest zeal for its advancement. When I used te be a school boy (but a few years age) the direc tors of the township paid us a yearly visit. On these momentous occasions the teachers would ask them what classes they would be pleased te hear recite, whereupon tlie learned body would held a half audible consultation and reach the conclu sion that it didn't make any difference. Then our teacher, exercising the rules of performing in going te class and reciting, which we had heard nothing of since the "first day of school" when they were made and were broken regularly each succeeding day, would march us te the platform an awful judgement bar then where we would be "put through" in a manner ' tirely satisfactory," as would be the en-cx- pressteu et the impression made upon our judges, who kucw as little about the les les eons as we did. Next our copybooks would be collected for their inspection. Leaf after leaf would be turned ever, without a leek at the beautiful curves, perfect shad ing, uniform height, and the many ether points that characterize geed penman ship, ns long as no blot was seen, and when ene was found hew they shook their heads, pointed their fingers at it, looked en the back for the name of the boy (it always was a boy's and often mine) who had dared te make such a blot ; his prospects in life were very dark indeed. Something should be dene for that boy. They had no praise for the geed it de served no credit, only censures for the blot it could never be excused. Then one of them would give us a short address where in would be set forth all the advantages of education we had and didn't prize ; the geed books wc had and didn't value ; the kind teacher we had and didn't love ; the comfortable (?) school-houses we had and cut them all up with our knives ; hew wc would regret the time wc were wasting when it would be tee late ; that ours was the worst school he had visited ; that al together we were a set of ungrateful, in apprcciativc little wretches whom he feared would never "amount te a hill of beans." And would leave. Who has visited our teachers' examinations and has net re marked the youth and general seeming in aptitude of the ones who propose te teach our youth? The girls have scarcely ceased te lisp although they have been te 3Iil lersville. What the boys lack in brains is made up in conceit. They both knew tee little te knew hew little they de knew. I am net speaking of our exceptional teachers we have a few but the general class. They have no knewledge eutside their book backs ; no experience in the world ; they arc net fit for anything else, se are made into teach ers ; their characters are net formed ; they can set no example ; they cannot rcalize the responsibilities of the position they seek, nor discharge them if they did. These are the gardeners who are te tend the nurseries from which we transplant into life. These are the early trainers of our men and women. "In the education of our children lies the hope of our nation," and these our educators ! We pay pretty geed wages se geed that is one of the most paying occupation in the country, but if it will bring us better teachers let us pay mere. Our schools are net what they should 1k. Can we reform them? Drumeuk. Minnesota's Mines. An Inexhaustible Source of Wealth. Correspondence New Yerk Sun. A few days age I attended a meeting which had been called te organize a new beard of trade in this city. This had been rendered necessary, in view of the rapid and unprecedented increase in the grain production of the state. Competent judges estimate the wheat crop in this state for this year at 36,000,000 bushels, valued, at a low estimate, at $28,000,000. This is less than 80 cents a bushel. The present price is 85 te 87 V, according te grade. It may go higher. Less than 1G0 days age no part of this great wealth existed. In the words of ene of the speakers of the occa sion : " Little mere than ninety days age, a bushel of grain placed in the fruitful soil, by dew and rain aud sunshine, and that unknown and incomprehensible process called life and growth, has developed te twenty bushels. The seed sewn in Minne sota in April has matured in August into ever forty mil liens of bushels of golden grain. Out of the generous soil from darkness and obscurity and mould has been lifted ever thirty millions of dollars' worth of property that actually had no cxistence ene hundred days age. I doubt whether California aud the golden slopes of the Pacific have ever in a single year lifted se much of the yellow mctil from outef their mines." Anether speaker said that "we have only begun te dream of the future of the great Northwest, and it is only necessary for the beard of trade te work with one accord and it will be but a short time when St. Paul, as the natural outlet of the northwestern states and territories, will take her proper place in the estimation of the country at large." This is interesting reading, because it is true and because it is a most gratifying exhibit for astatc se yeungand se sparsely settled as Minnesota. There arc new about :;,()()() miles of railroad in the state and mere arc building constantly. St. Paul handled last year 1,000,000 bushels of eats, 2,000,000 bushels of corn, and nearly amil amil lien bushels of wheat. This year it is said these figures will be nearly doubled. New elevators are being erected among the rail roads in this immediate vicinity, building in the city is very active, a magnificent Union depot is new being constructed for the use of the railroads centring here, and as the last and best evidence of a healthy activity in business, all the hotels are crowded te their utmost capacity. The population of St. Paul is 41,457, while her sister city Minneapolis, six miles west, beasts 4S,201. Nearly a hundred thous and people in two cities that could beast but a few years age net ever 70,000 be tween them. This rapid and continuing increase in population is based en the ma terial prosperity of the state and the grow ing wealth of the peeple. I was very forcibly impressed with a doubt expressed in one of the speeches at the beard of trade meeting, whether the Pacific slope had ever in a single year pro duced enough money from its mines te buy this year's Minnesota wheat crop. As a matter of fact, the Pacific coast has in ene or two years produced sufficient money te buy this crop. But at what a cost in money, in manhood, in moral character, and what wrecks have been left in it wake ! The lessen of Minnesota suggests a moral aud a contrast. It shows what may be ac ac cempliscd in a very few years in a virgin county. Hundred of foreigners whom I remembered ns coming into Minnesota nearly ten years age, with barely enough money te bring them here, are new the owners of fine farms ; they have money in bank, they have catlc and a house and barn, and are en the high read te fortune. Rough, uncouth, unlettered, and unlearned when they arrived here, they arc new exerting nn inflnence in local affairs. Many of them held offi cial positions in the counties where they reside. They arc all bright, enterprising lrugal, hard-working and geed citizens. Each knows that he is a unit of the whole people, and ns geed "as any one." Am bition spurs some of them en te be a little better. If Swedes, Danes, Germans, and Norwegians can de this, why net some of the thousands of our native-born citizens who are holding en by their eyelids te chance in New Yerk, with every prospect and an cvcr-prcscnt fear that they may at any moment drop into the gulf of hope less and helpless bankruptcy? Minnesota offers rare advantages. After an exper ience of very nearly llve years in travel through the West, and a residence of ever three years in California, I recognize the coming greatness of Minnesota. As a wheat-raising state it will undoubtedly surpass California in a few years. In the latter state there is never any assurance from one year te another that a full crop will be harvested. A dry winter upsets all calculations. In Minnesota a fair crop may be depended en with absolute cer tainty, and an extraordinary yield very frequently. The organization of the St. Paul beard of trade had for its object, among ether things, te secure te this city all the advan tages arising from the grain field. Bat I am sorry te note an apparant intention of the Milwaukee & St. Paul and the .Chi cago & Northwestern railroads te convert St. Paul into a way station. The policy of these reads is and always has been te drain the products of the whole Northwest directly into Chicago, and there is no present help for the evil. If New Yerk capitalists would ceme te the rescue and construct a read from here te New Yerk, and retail! control of it, St. Paul would reap all the honors and seme of the profit that new gees te Chicago, and New Yerk would eventually get the Han's share of both. This is a subject worthy the car nest thought of the gentlemen who make and unmake commercial kingdoms in Wall street. " AE. McCANN, AUCTIOMtKR OF REAL. . Estate and Personal Property.
