THE MBMHPIS XJA-IXIT -FBID AY. 11. 1875.
ftESPMS APPEAL FKIDAY, : : JUNE 11, 1875. School examinations are now in or Jar, and Hie boys and Riila are iu a llnlter oi expectancy over prizes and averages. Those wlio attend the free scuoola are especially -worked up be cause there is neither glitter nor show, llowera nor music, nor prepared epeech e3, or genuflections, but honors to be at tained on feolid merit alone. Not that flowers and speeches and "all eech" are not all right in their proper places, as, for instance, when tho pupil has closed his or her school book to open the broader and far more intricate one of the world. It is all very well that the graceful graduate, in the simplicity of white and tulle and flowers, should majce her exit from among her mates in a shower of bouquets that emblematize her beauty and purity; but to the lit tle ones.whosejwork is not yet half donr, who have not yet earned the wreath either of beauty or merit, the stage should never open, and commencement should bo as a sealed book. This is the plan cf our public schools, and it is a plan we heartily indorse as not the least among many that make those Institutions our pride and our boast. It Is within the limits of the eternal fitness of things that the children of the ieopIe of a free State should bo well grounded in all that matures .the solid judgment before an appeal is'made to the pride of ascend ancy that is so hurtful and is so often generated by school displays. The graded schools are having their exam inations in quiet, the last of them to oomo olT to-day, and the high-school graduates will make their final bow on the stage of the Theater to-night, evi dencing, as we are prepared to believe, aw amount of schooling and training that will reflect the utfhoat credit upon tho teachers. Of course there will be a crowd present, and the honors of the oc casion will be conferred with becoming c&al at the hands of those who have the capability to appreciate all the bless ings of our public school system. The fact is, however, there is no dis position among the former slave-holding classes of the south, which consti tute the controlling elementofthe Dem ocratic party there at present, to sustain the free schools. Bo far from being will ing to make any sacrifice to maintain the system, there is a very decided tendency to abandon it altogether. Chicago Tribune. We answer the above unjust and un true statement by the following from the Charleston Hews and Courier, which, referring to the attempt in Ohio io secuie a division of the school fund, so that each religious denomination shall receive its quota and apply it to tho support of its own schools, says: The agitation of thi question has pro voked h bitter discussion, and the State Republican convention meet it squarely in tLcir platform, which says: "We "stand by free education our public "school system, tho taxation of all for "ila support, und no division of the "school fund." It IS thought tlialtfan Democrats will dodge this question with tho hope of gaining tho Catholic vote. This would be a grave error. The divis ion of the school fund, as proposed, would ultimately break up the common school system, and no party that advo cates or consents to a policy which threatens that result can long be suc cessful. The yews and Courier is right, and in the above speaks for the pres3 and people of tho south. Tho Appeal in dorses it. We have always been ardent supporters of the free schools, and al ways will be, and we speak for the Dem ocrats of Tennessee when wo say that they never will allow any attempt to be successfully made upon their integrity in this State. Incompetent legisla tors, and ignorant, may assail and even cripple for a while the means of educat . iug the children of the people, but the Democratic parly does not countenance them and will not be held responsible for them. We are for the schools, for public education as the antipodies of vice and crime and prisons and peni tentiaries and selfishness. We are for the schools on tho old Democratic prin ciples of the greatest good for the great est numler. Will the Chicago Tribune print that? The liostonians have all but com pleted their preparations for tho centen nial celebration of the battle of Bunker Hill. All the world will be present or properly represented, and especial hon ors are to be paid the southern military companies which propose to lend them selves to the occasion. The newspaper reports of the procession, the speeches, orations and poems, too, are being fore stalled by the publishers at the "Hub," who have issued a half-dozen books about the battle which all historians agree encouraged tho colonies to perse vere for freedom and separation from the mother country. Among those books Mr. Richard Frotbingham's is re- commended as "still the best," and, as Little, Brown & Co. have just published & new edition of it, tho general reader need have no difficulty in getting it. Its full title, which sufficiently describes its contents, is: "The Battle of Bunker Hill, with a view of Chaileston in 1775, Page's plan of the action, Komaue's ex aet view of the battle, and other illustra- tioiM." Along with this comes another " of Mr. Frotbingham's careful ruono . graphs, "The Life and Times of Joseph Warren," a very interesting biography. Mr. Samuel Adams Drake, the pains taking antiquarian whose " Old Land marks of Boston" is, or ought to be, well known beyond the "Hub,"has published, through Nicholls & Hall, of that city, "Bunker Hill: the Story told in Letters from the Battle-field by British Officers Engage," with an introduction and sketch of the battle, and an illustration from an old engraving never before pub lished in this country. This enables us to hear the other side, and between the new books and the old ones nobody can complain that the battle of Bunker Hill has not been sufficiently expounded. The two great orders, whose mission is to do good, and that continually, are to give their annual picnics the Odd Fellows on the fourteenth and the Ma gona on the twenty-fourth. We have already called attention to the fact that General Banks is to deliver an address before the latter, which will no doubt bo such as will challenge the admiration of his hearers, and sustain the claims of tho Masons for the preaching and pos session of a charity that vaunteth not itself, and yet is full of all good. The twenty-fourth is to bo to the MaEons a day marked by an unusual demonstra tion. The fourteenth with the Odd-Fellows is to be quieter. They will have no procession or ceremony, and will con flue their observance of an old and hon ored custom of tho order in Memphis to a basket picnic at the grounds of the Lealh orphan asylum, which we need hRrdly say, are as eligible and beautiful as any in tho vicinity of the city. That it will be a pleasant aflair we are not left room to doubt when we remember previous Odd-Fellows' pic nics. Odd-Fellows though they be, in many good things they are not unlike the rest of the world when they come to the enjoyment of the dance and such merry-making as a picnic usually af fords. We remember their last year'g picuic at Bartlett as one of tho best of a season remarkable for the number of such pleasure parties, and we argue from it that tho occasion of Monday next will be one long to be remembered by those who are privileged to participate. Con ducted with exceptional good taste and almost a private affair, we regard tho basket picnic of the Odd-Fellows on Monday as one of the first of the gath erings of that character this season. Here is an important decision affect ing life insurance companies. The court of appeals of Maryland, sitting at Ann apolis, has decided the case of the Knickerbocker life insurauco company against Magdalena Peters, under an ap peal of the company from a decision of tho lower court. The company defends its action under the clause in tho policy which makes it void, " if the assured Bhall die by his own hand or act." Tho court says it is now-too well settled to admit of question that the clause is not to be construed as comprehending every possible case in which life is taken by the party's own act. For instance, all authorities concur in the view that an unintentional or accidental taking of life in not within the meaning and in tention of the clause. Thus, if by inad venturo or accident a party shoots him self or takes poison by mistake, or in a sudden frenzy or delusion tears a band age from a wound and bleeds to death, in the literal sense of the term he dies by his own act, yet all tho decisions argue that a reasonable construction of the proviso, according to the plain and obvious intention of the parties, would exclude such parties from its operation. The act of self-destruction in this case was by hanging, and the court, having examined the record, could not say that there was no - idence legally sufficient to authorize a jury to infer and find that the deceased killed himself in a fit of insanity. The judgment of tho court below (tho court of common pleaa of Baltimore), which found for the plain tiff, was affirmed. Four years ago a contest was begun for the location of the county seal of Prairie county, Arkansas. Tho people then located it at Hickory Station by a majority of two hundred and thirty eight votes. That was before Lonoke county was made, and Hickory Station was near the center of the county. The people were defeated by tho use of a corrupt county judge in the face of all law and right. A little over a year ago more than two-thirds of the voters of the county petitioned the legislature, then in session, to remove, by act, the county seat of Prairie county from De vall'fl Bluff to Dea Arc. This was an swered by a bill leaving tno yiiuio mat ter to the people of the county, who have at last had their choice ratified. As we learn from the Des Arc Cilizcn of the first, "the supreme court rendered a decision last Friday in tho county seat matter, deciding that the county seat of Prairie county ia legally located at Des Arc." Now let the people of Prairie county dwell together in unity. TnE Chicago Times's Washington correspondent, treating at length of tho recent robbery from tho treasury of forty-seven thousand dollars, says that no special dexterity is required in the ac complishment of such a crime. Tho worst bungling thief in the world, if once installed as a clerk, would have no trouble in stealing bis way to a fortune and avoiding discovery. Tho treasury department is criminally careless in making up packages of money each day without retaining the numbers of the bills. If the department only had the numbers of these bills, it would be ren dered an absolute impossibility for the thief who has them to get rid of them. Tho Bank of England never allows a package of money to be sent out without retaining the numbers of tho bills so sent. This action has served as a very powerful check upon theft in that insti tution. In the United States treasury no such precaution is taken, and in the case of the late robbery there is no pos sible means of identifying the bills stolen. The United States Economist, an au thority on railroad matters, states plainly that the Erie disruption and bankruptcy has brought the inevitable Jay Gould to the front onco more, and he is credited with any amount of in trigues and plans for recovering hi3 lost place in the Erie management. It is be lieved that tho natural tendency of events will contribute to this result. The connecting lines now operated by the railroad syndicate, of which Jay Gould is the master-spirit, are the Central Pa cific, Union Pacific, Kansas Pacific and the St. Louis, Kansas City and North ern railroad lines. This completes tho route from San Francisco to the Missis sippi river at St. Louis. The control of Erie is all that is required to complete the missing links from the Mississippi fb New York and the Atlantic secboaid. A combination of this kind seems to be only, a question of time, and it now looks very much as' if it were destined to be clTected at no distant period under the auspices of Jay Gould. The Montgomery Advertiser and Mail informs its readers that the large county meetings, and unexceptionable character of the candidates selected, show that there is a determined opposi tion to the present constitution of Ala bama, and a desire to have it amended by the best and purest men in the State. If the manner .n which it was thrust upon the State, at the point of the bayo net, is entirely left out of the calcula tion, it contains enough that is oppress ive and cumbersome to cause every person, white and black, to wish to eeo it changed.' The expense ia nothing. The new constitution will be submitted for ratification or rejection. There can be no doubt on this point. The vested right of no man will be interfered with, and no qualification upon the'Wght of suffrage will be attempted or thought of. Here is something worthy of imita tion : "Since the burning of the Catholic church at Holyoke, Massachusetts, Can ada has a law requiring outward-swinging doors in all churches, theaters, halls, schools, and other public buildings." This law affixes a largo fine for its non observance, and has been rigidly en forced. It ia ceitainly worthy of imita tion, and would frequently savo lifo and limb in case of fire or false alarms in t u. i.-ii- itrsit ah. iliufMi Tannin puunc uaiia. ui uui uiwi-u v-r and owners of public buildings think of this? The new postal treaty goes Into effect on the first of July next. Between the United States and nearly all the coun tries of Europe a single postage will carry a letter weighing fifteen grains, or a little more than half an ounce. The adoption of the metric system of weights in international postal matters will prob ably lead soon to its adoption for domes tic letters. At least we hope so, for two systems would, to say the least, be in convenient. The health of our city was never bet ter than it is at the present time. In Elmwood, our principal cemetery, Mr. Lenow informs us, there have been only eleven interments from Juno 1st to June 10th. From May 21st to May 27th, a a period of six days, not an interment was made in that cemetery, which has not happened in twenty years. The great failure of the legislature was not in prohibiting tho use of re deemed bonds or coupons as collateral for State loans, but in not having the courage to provide for tho payment of the debt of the Slate, and by its neg lecting so to do, stabbing the credit and good namo of the State. It is asserted upon good authority that two million five hundred thousand people have emigrated from Ireland to this country in the last twenty-five years, and that out of a population at no time within that period greater than six millions. The crop report of M'Killop, Sprague &Co., in another column, will challenge the attention of our merchants. It is aa late aa the fifth instant, aud embraces the greater part of Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. It is the Chicago Tribune which says that Ohio postmasters, to the number of fifty-five, have risen up and called Gen eral Grant blessed, but at the same time signified their opposition to a third term We trust that all the voters of Missis sippi who are opposed to Radicalism will fight under the Democratic banner, and put an end to all this child's play about names.
