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. '

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. The
work might be comnien.-ed, and carried
gradually forward without being a burden.

This language will apply, not inaptly, to
many sites in our county. But in grounds
as in bouses, the spirit of improvement is
manifest. " Boaras" are awaking to these
important subjects. That the place where

Our teachers have beenr -poorly paid. In
18U6, and 18f7 the average wages of teachers,
males and females, were as low iu Deiawa-e
county as iu any other County in Ohio bttl
one. In 1868 they show an improvement,
but ares ill among the lowest. JudgeJones
says our horses are valued higher than in
other ,-ouuties nametU- May the same be
come true of our teachers. 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. As we fix the standard of qualifi
cation of teachers, we regulate these dirers
ities in attendance, cost per- pnpil, and

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
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.

For some years past ; astronomers
have seen, when observing total eclipses
with telescopes, very, liua . notches . ol
light in trie contract of tbe edges of the
sun ami Moon, presenting ibe appear
ance of beads. . They were, for a time,
supposed to be inequalities in Lhe
Moon's surface. Mr. w arreu ae ia itue,

EXTRAVAGANCE OF THE DEM-

Some of the Democratio- papers,
among them the Ohio Statesman, re
present that the aggregate amount o
appropriations made by the Into Demo
cratic General Assembly -were less in
amount Ihari 'those! of the' preceding
Republican General, yVHsembly, and on
that ground claim that there was a sav

He Buvs : One of the ways 1q which

rently made the balance In tbeir favor,

Legislature appropriated ior to is pnr

During the years 18bb-7 the - Interest
m the State debt for which provision
was made amounted to 1,640,000, wbll,-
during. the years 186S-9 the ititerest
a mount d to 81.699.S94. From these
figures it will appear that the policy ol
the Republicans in paying off the State
ilebt reduced the amount' of Interest to
bt. paid in 1868-9 by one hundred and for
ty thousand six hundred and six dollars.
Iu order to veriiy the above state
ments I have compiled - the following
facts from the printed volumes of laws
for the years 1866, '67, '68 and 't9 : ,.
' Iu 1866 the General Assembly appro
priated $700,000 for the payment' tof the
interest ou the foreign aud ' domestic

amount appropriated for the payment
of the debt aud lntorest of the State by
the last Republican General Assembly
amounted to $3,548,630. ,
In 1868 the Gen-ral Assembly, appro-1
priated "(355,00; ior the payment pf jhe

tic debt of the State., Total amount
appropriated for the payment of the
piincipal and interest of the State ilebt
in 1863, $1,094,656, or 955,944 less than I
the sum appropriated for this purpose
by the Republican General Acsouibly
at its first session in 1866.
-III 18i9 the General Assembly appro

Of the interest on the irreducible d.-l)t
or trust funds held by the State ; $254,

propriated for lbs payment of the prin
cpal and ititerest of the State debt iu
1869, $1,198,429, or $209,601 lees than the
amount appropriated at the second scs
ion of the last Republican Legisla
ture. - ' - .
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

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

Statesman, It will be seen that tbe actu

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
more than did tivo years of Republican
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

We were surprised at the nomination

not divine, but we have leaders in Ohio
who profess peace principles, and Vet

as General " Sherman, General Ewing

to take the nartv to tbe slano-hter bo
often upon false principles. ,

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

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

We do not. by any means, consider
