F.T1 CATIOSAL SURVEY OF DEL- y aware count y. BY CHARLES MORTIMER JANES. Read before the Delaware County Teachers' Institute, at Sunbury, Thursday Evening, July 29, OCR COLLEGES. are a pride, and a glory to our county. Many ot our sons and daughters have sought their advantages. In nearly every village and township may be found persona of both sexes enjoying the privileges of liberal education re ceived in their halls. The Ohio Wes leyan University and the Ohio Wes leyan Female College need no praise. They speak for themselves. But we deplore the breach, the almost im passable gap existing between them and our "Common Schools." Beingin our midst ought not our schools really to feel their presence ? Is it a fact that they , dot By a comparison of our Common Schools and those of other counties containing colleges, -with those of ot her counties not having such institutions, do not the former rather suffer 1 From, careful examination -we incline to an affirmative answer. Such should not be the ease. Common Schools are the basis, the substratum of higher institutions, the pillars on which their foundations rest. Perhaps the members of college faculties have not given that immediate attention to the schools of lower grade in their re spective localities which their import ance demands. If this has been the rule, in our county we are happy to ob serve there are now noble exceptions. PTJBLIC SCHOOLS OF DELAWARE. These are yearly attaining increased celebritv and eificienev. Thev were organized tn 1860 under the-tichool law of 1853. There are three general class es into which they are divided, denom inated respectively the District, Inter mediate, and HLibi Schools. -There is one school each! in the two - hUhest grades. -. The District schools : are di vided into seven grades designated bv the first letters of the alphabet, 'A, B, C, &c. These grades are more clearly j distinguished by the general divisions Primary, District, ana intermediate. There is one colored school. The age and advancement-of pupils are" the conditions of transfer. Advancement i in reading is-the condition of promo tion in the Distt ict schools. The num ber of different teachers employed is thirteen. Thanuruber of pupils enum erated in September, 1807, - were 1600. N amber enrolled in schools Hot), near ly. : Average number in daily attend ance, 600. The whole number of pupils enrolled for the month ending January 29, 1869, .was 880.. .The average daily attendance-for that time was 670. A glance at these figures shows the ad vantage of these schools over our un graded country District schools to be in the number of pupils taught by a single teacher. " Another advantage is the incentive fo pupils, afforded bvthe opportunity for promotion, Much of the emciency ot tne PuDiie schools ot Delaware is due to the" labors of the Superintendant, Rev. James S. Camp bell. Me is also principal oi the Misrh School. The school buildings of Dela ware are undergoing, marked improve ment. A superb new structure with modern improvements is projected on Lincoln Aveoue. The City Council has appropriated the City Turn for the Bite of another new edifice. !.- S The private schools and' 'teachers 1 of Delaware deserve more than a passing notice. Of one of the latter One of our Examiners said, " he never examined her pupils in reading, because they were all nood readers." What more glowing tribute could we pay to any teacher ? " ! Sunbury, Ostrander, Galena and "Ashley, as well hs Delaware, have eai-h graded schools,-with three departments -Isl each. All are of comparatively recent origin. The Sunbury Union Institure,- at the former place, is due to the energetia- efforts of Col. G. A. Framhes. We should not. neglect, to noi ice the successful labors of H.IL Straight In the school at Galena. Graded schools will luoltipiy in our midst before we see tbe highest results of educational enterprise. In every village in our county, or at leastin each township, should be a school where young ladies might enjoy the opportunity ot studying the higher branches, and where the young men would surely go, in the long winter months, lather than spend their time in smoking and in ' playing check ers" at the ' corner grocery. ' ,; . COJCMOS SCHOOf. JO-OVSMA ' ' " in Delaware county have chronically been reported "good." Those which realiy have the modern improvements in ventilation, desks, and arrangements are the exceptions to the rule. The total number of school houses in this county in 1807, was 156. Of these 3d are ortcK, m stone, lot frame, and f log. These log school houses are all that remain of our pioneer school edifices, in which benches without bac K s, desks arou nd the wall, and puncheon floors were "the " con venieuces'and which were erected by the "settlers" of a neighborhood in some central locality, amToecapied fey a teacher who could "read, write and cipher as far as the single rule of three," who taught for seven dollars per month and "boarded round.'" Although improvements in ur school houses have not kept pace wii h oth er departments of public enterprise, rapid strides have been matte. In 1867, thirteen new houses were erected at a cost of Fifteen thousand dollars. In 1868, we see an in creased expenditure, and a better displtiy of taste in architecture, and inclination to convenience. Houses ior graded ' schools have been erected in Galena. Hunborv and Ostrander. In the fall of last year Harlem township built a fine brick structure in sub district No. 1, Harlem village, 28x00 feet in size, with a verandah 12xh. feet, containing doors openingintothesoparate rooms. This is probably the finest ungraded school house iu the county. In the same year Dis trict No. i, in Kingston township, erected a nne structure at a cost or twelve huuured dollars. Orange township erected two flue brick structures at a cost of nearly two thousand dollars. Tills year the work tou tinues unabated. Delaware and Delhi Ad vertise for proposals for imposing buildings. In several of the townships houses are in course of erection. Trenton township .was the first whioh fully availed itself ot the "new law" to provide . houses at the ex pense of the township, feilie long since had a comfortable house . iu each sub-District, and we hear no complaint. A geutleman living in an adjoining township, but own ing real estate here, said, "he had helped build, houses in both, and he considered the money well Invested." Many of the po.r houses are due to the aversion of Boards of BIducution to comply with the law to provide better ones.

Perhaps they have received all they asked and in many instances more than they were worth. Tiw practice of engaging the lowest bidder is certainly Injurious to both schools and te-chers. " The practice of giving all appli cants a hearing, at a special meeting, as adopted by a certain board, and then de ciding upon the merits hefore fixing. the wages, is more commendable. The highest average wages paid teachers In any township in 1867, both male and fe male, was Raduor, and yet the total cost of ber schools Is less than several others. The township having the largest number of schools, with the greatest total cost, and tbe dtghKtaveraite wages next to Radnor 1 Scioto. In other townships ranging next in total cost of schools, the averane wages of teachers is still less. They have a iarge number of cheap schools. An examination of tne attendance shows a grout diversity in the cost of tuition per scholar iu the differ ent, town-hips and sub-districts. It is prob ably worth as much to teach one scholar another.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN THE GREAT SOL.AR ECtlPSE. ' - From Packard's Monthly. One of tbe singular problems whleti demands solution is the beautiful au reola that adorns the little Moon at tne time it eenpses the mtghthy snn. , justasme crescent of light on the eastern margin of the Sun is about to vanish from the ' sight, rays of encir cling neni appear ; ana the next mo ment, when all tbe bright Sun is h'drten ihe pretty Moon rubs onr central orb of light una Hie ot its golnous crown, The Sun, far in the background t)f the cpiesti.il picture, is thrown into the shade by the little, dark Moon Inter vening in the extreme foreground- Bat the Sua is not extinguished. Its face is hidden, but its tlory is Btill manifest in the wonderful halo. ' Tbe Corona is the Sun's such at least has been .the award of astronomers. Tbe Moon made feeble efforts' to claim it for her own, but the Sun' has car ried off. the . prize. ' Yet this Ihtltj onanne bodv incaoable of sheddinir tny light of its own had fo thrust it self in oetween men ana tne great in ninary, 1rl order that tbe Corona might spring forth and .be pictured in the heavens." Even a grain of sand may be necessary to understand a moun tain. ..... Tnus much, then, has this little Moon done for uu. And this is not all. In the Corona, close to the edare of the Moon, are seen through the telescope sometimes Dy the naked eye- little rose-colored protuberances of various forms. At the time they wore first no ticed arose tne quatton : do tnev o long to the Sun or to the Moon f This question, too, seems to be sett led. " Just as the Moon was getting roundly be- ore the Sun the Corona and promin ences started into view, ana as it sped icross the disc or the aun it was seen to cover the eastern and to uncover the western prominences, some of which nad also been seen entirely separated from the edge of tbe Moon. Pnoto- iraphy. too, has helped to answer: tbi queBiion by the coincidence of the urominences in the superposition of two pictures taken at different epochs or totBiity. . The Corona and the reddish emana tions may, therefore, be put down as belonging to the Sua. : THE CORONA. We are not yet informed what the beautiful aureola is. If it indeed be longs to the Sun it must be about eight hundred thousand miles brnad, for it has been sven nearly as wide as the Moon'edisc. Streamers of light have lso been seen extending" beyond the Corona. According to the accounts given by tbot-e who have seen total eclipses within tbe last few years, the Corona sheds about as much light as u liven by tbe full Moon. By some It is described as a silvery light ; by other as i presenting prismatic color. It start out in rays from the dark edge of he Moon just as totality is about to begin, and dissppeurs. when the bright Sun burst forth again in a line of light at the western ede of the Moon.

I imagine that no one will be found so anxious for the success of his pany as to say that the money used by 'the Republican Legislature in tbe pavilion: of the State debt aud the interest there on was money thrown away, but that It will (at generally acknowledged that It was money wisely invented. " ' Take the amount appropriated by the Fifty-seventh General Assembly for tha payment of the interest ami "piin cipal of tne State debt $3,543,630, from the total nmounl of its appropriations fas figured bv ihD Statesman), $9,656,8112 -01, aud it will ba seen that the actual expenses or the State Government for two years, under a Republican Mdmln istratioti were $6,108,232. 01. By deduc ting the amount appropriated by the Demooraiij Legislature lorlhe payment f tbe Interest and principal of the State debt, Iroin tbe total auiouut of in appioprlatlons. s figured by the Statesman, It will be seen that tbe actu al expenses of the Slate Goemment under two years of Democraim admin. titration amounted to $6 832,077. B2, iwoyearsof JJemorratic administration ooat two hundred and twenty-four thous- and acven hundr&Jixnd fortj-Jive dollars j NO. 20 more than did tivo years of Republican legislation. lu ibis connection I will repeat the weil-known fact that the per diem and mileage of the officers and members of the last Democratic Legislature, and the expenses of itscominittees, amount ed to $250,500, while tbe same expenses ot the last Kepublicao General Assem bly amounted lo only $118,824. 60. From this it will be seen that in this matter alone tbe expense of tbe State Government was increased by the sum oi f ioi,o,a. -so. In the defense of the Fiftv-eiehth General Assembly, which the Demo- cratioS'ate Convention was 'compelled o set op in its platform on account of tbe masterly speech of Governor Hayes, it is asserted that large expenditures were necessary for the rebuilding- oi of the Central Ohio Lunatic Asylum, the building of anew asylum for the Blind and the establishment of other benevolent institutions. It was the evi dent intent of the Convention to make the people believe that the Democratic Legislature had provided the money for the establishment of these institu tions. The fact in reference to the Cen- ral Ohiti Ltfhatio Asylum is that tbe General Assembly provided that it should be built at a cost of $450,000, but appropriated onty tfiui'.uuu for this pur pose, thus sad rtting $360,000 on the Leg islature mat snail succeed. The truth in reference to the Blind Asylum is the same. A law was enacted Drovidine that the asylum should be built at a ot of $250,000. This done, the Demo cratic Legislature magnanimously ap nropriates 850.000. and sealn saddles 200,000 on its successor. The-se things were done for a purpose. Tbe Demo cratic campaign document, the Appro priation bill, mustsbow that the Fiftv- eighth General Assembly appropriated less money than did the Fiftv-seventh General Assembly, and for this pur pose tne Legislature to be elected this fail will be compelled to nav a debt of $550,000 authorized last winter. ' A DBJIOf RATIC PAPER ON RO SECRANS. From the Cincinnati Commoner July iutn.j We were surprised at the nomination of General Roseerans by the Democracy of Ohio, and we presume he will be equally surprised, and decline the hon or. What hidden impulse it is, we can not divine, but we have leaders in Ohio who profess peace principles, and Vet (ly to such rulers and representatives as General " Sherman, General Ewing and General Roseerans. Ofoarse.it Is a surrender at discretion cf rtll that we have struggled for ever since the separa tion. We know how the itch for suc cess, office, money aud power besieges nany oi our nrst men, oi men honor. our wara ana township poiitleans. That Itch is very contagious, and may oe saia. io oe almost universal., "suc cess at all "hazards" has become the motto of certain gentlemen iu th rront ot the Democracy, wbo should ne contented with principle . and waiting till they can make it prevail. Certainly thev ought not to be allowed to take the nartv to tbe slano-hter bo often upon false principles. , General itosecrans is not anv more s representative of tbe peace Demoeracv han uenerai otranr, nor or the worklnir masses, more than General Cary. We want all the voters we can get again.) General Hayes; but what do we gain by electing another; General T It would ate -been only .judicious and logical for the Democracy to have nominated a civilian who would have polled the strength of the party of al shades. Mr. Pugh. thought Mr. Allen was such s candidate, and wa thought well of h t-eeonimenaation ; out wa learn tha' Mr. Allen remsed to run. If Genera Roseerans declines, we will have the question over again; and then probably better "selection can be made. Judge Rinney has no qualifications for anv thins but the routine of the Governor ship; and we are long since past the ege of routine. It will be a oplendid change to get a few thinkers instead of a parce' of bura-drnm lawyers and cross-road sters into onr Governorship, and onr Senate and other State and. Federal offi ces. - , .. General Rosecrns has never done anything of not" bnt his grevioun purf in the war, for which he will he fffectn atly remembered by thousands of Dem ocrats at the polls.' He is an everlast ing talker and correspondent. bn knows very little of constitutional law or poli'ical eoonomv. He has with hi aword violated all the defenses of liber ty for all tb States,. Tt ig true he is in imical to General Grant, which ill opinion i rectprotiated, but that ia a very slender ground fmrhis selection. He was not the candidate of tb En quirer, which is besotted with Carr. and got him so badly bea'en that bo will -not- reappar s a Democratic politician. The indifference of the En quirer o General Roiecrans is not go-d around for supportinir bim. In short, ha is not any true reprosentati ve of Democracy, and our leaders who never had an idea, nor the slightest estimat" of one, will be surprised to find bow many will refuse to vote for lhe nomi nee for Governor if he runs. It Is true hat the Statesman, as usual after nom inations, is very extravagant, but that is chronic and signifies nothine. T calls. Itself the central organ of the nartVi Judge Gtlmore will make eood member of the Supreme Cowrt. and he has considerable acquaintance with sound political principles. There 's great pleanre ia suopnrttnsr snch candidate. Tbe Attorney General, Mr. Cnnnell, is an inconsiderable pprson who might well represent the party, if we had had no war, and if be had not been In it, and fu'mlnaled hack home bis aversion to Copperheads. Of the rest wa mav speak hereafter. We do not. by any means, consider the ticket settled fw far as tbo- bead nf it stands.' General Roseerans may choose to make the canvass as a candi date for Governor, bnt wo are at a loss to know what ho nan say, -ov how an swer the boneat objection to his public oharaoter and his military antecedent". We shall posse wi-nnrselves in pafienca till Ihe General has spoken and tbe voters taken a serious view ot tbe pros peets before them. , From tue Jiew Xdrk Tribune , OUR FINANCIAL, TKHJMPIf. One year agoj we were "making np progress in the redaction of oiir"i-Na- tionul Debi, had madenonp formnmhs, and were- likelv to make none for moiiihs to como. ' Mr. Alex. Del mar, the leading Copperhead Free " Trado statistician, had recently pot forth a manifesto, at the solicitation and with fhe emphat ! indorsement of Messrs. WiHon w. iinnt, iienry irmiieii Co., showing, by elaborate computa tations and marshaling1 of long col umns of figures, that there would baa Treasury deficit of $175,000,000 on the nrst nay or this present July. Ana as nothing but a Kcixil victory' ever ex hilarated Sham Demooiaov Hks a pros- ptc of National Bankruptcy, The world had surrendered many columns io Delmar'a exhibit, and Ihe letocrat ie pie bad everywhere bailed it with exultation as a snre premonition of a future National distrocs, discrvdH and humiliation. One ver has psed, and with it the rule of Andrew Johnson.- The whole sale thieves whom he Installed in pow er over oar great Custom Houses, with the leaser villains to whom he largely confided Ihe collection of Internal Revenue, have been dismissed to the, obscurity for which thev should feel no I grntelul, and Republicans appointed to! till their placea. The laws are Ihe same as ever there has been no change cl- i dilated to increase the Iteveuue or es aHutiaily reduce the Exp'-iiditurea ; ot the Revenue is increased, while the Expeuditurt a are reduced, so that we are paying off nearly Ten Millions per mouth ol the princij'al of our Debt, af ter discharging every current obliga tion, Includiug the payment of over Teu Millions per mouth of Interest iu coin. Meantime, ths goncral thrift la qutte beyond precedent. We, are building nevr Railroads at the rate ot aoo: thotisauds of miles per annum. We are Improving and re-laying many old ones, in many cases with at el ratla. We are erecting lactones aud furnaces by huudreda, mainly In the Went and South, where they h-tve hitherto been deficient. In i'te of a too prevalent louduesH for Trado and Speculation, we are bunding many new farm-houses anH rv n u I i . r . I i.iin. mfi.ril f 1 T, H who travels in h never din otion musi observe.

In spite of onr heavy Debt, and of tba formidable State, Connty, City and Towmbip War Debts which we are more rapidly paving off, this country Including her sfatetj lately desolated by Civil War, ia in creasing its productiveness and wealth as no country ever did before. The achievement next in order la the funding of our Debt at a lower rate of interest. We are now paving six per cent., which is entirely too high for a state of peace and prosperity. We made the oclk of that Debt redeemable alter five and within twenty years ex pressly that we might, after the return of Peace, be at liberty so to fund it. We ought to begin the process of fund ing directly and complete It within G-n. Grant first term. If the Ftve-Twenties-oould be funded iu a new Four pee cer t., lhe saving ia interest would be some Thirty Millions per an num, which of itself would extinguish the Debt within a lifetime. We trust, therefore, that the Peopla will turn a ctaf ear to all projects ol essential Tax Reduction till the work of funding is cotnpleie. To effect it, the Treasury most be in the receipt of a large surplus, and must be cotiHisntly paying off (not merely converting) Debt. So long as it shall persist m buying and putting aside or luirnbi r f ive to Ten Millions per month, it will be master of the situation, and may dictate terms to the holders of its l ive Twenties. Let every citisen who be lieves in National bonestv realize that every dollar abstracted from too Rev enue now will cost many dollars In keeping up tiie interest of our Debt, and the schemes of open or covert re- pudiators to deplete the lreasury Dy reducing taxation will be repelled Riiil rejected.
