From the last Annual Report of the Commissioner of Common Schools, Wrn. E. Harvkt, Esq., we extract the fol lowing : "Our school system appears now to be fully in operation. The people are be ginning to read the law, and understand it; and those who do read it carefully, are ne-rly unanimous in the opinion that itn&e3 but little"amend eni to make it all that is to be desired. Had it not been lor defects in other laws that bear upon our school system, a much more favorable condition could be shown. For instance, in the Revenue Law, which extended the time for paying the School Taxes for 1860, until last fall, and under which lo cal School taxes cannot be made availa ble for something over a year and a half after they are levied, and then, there being no stringent provisions relative to distress and sale for delinquent taxest much of the tax remains unpaid, even after the long credit given, and, again, because there is not sufficient penalty, provided by law for neglect of duty, those county Treasurers who can make a prof it out of the school funds in the purchase of "seed wheat," or otherwise, cannot be compelled, at the proper time to eith er report the amounts collected, or to pay it over to the proper orders. In spite of all these defects and draw backs our number of public schools, and attendance thereon, has been much more largely increased than I had reason to hope for when my last report was made to the Legislature, as will be seen by the following: ABIT ACT Or COTSTT aWOitTS.

If the taxes are closed up the above estimate is a fair one. I have not in the above considered the amount that can be realized from the leasing of the school lands, though it will amount to a respectable sum after the first year. I cannot now make an estimate that will be reliable, but sup pose that $5,000 or 6,000 can be obtain ed the first year." 7 WAR NEWS. X0YALTY INCREASING! THE REBELS TIRED OP IT! GEN.

STRONG TJNIOII FEELING IN ABHANSA& Much indignation is expressed by the rebel ofScers at the retreat of Pillow and Floj'd. They are universally exe crated by the whole rebel command es pecially Floyd, who is denounced as a Thief, a Runaway, and a Coward. The rebel and federal officers frater nize with the best of feelings. The assertion made in regard to the strong Union sentiment -pervading the prisoners take here is much strengthen enedby subsequent intercourse with them The remark holds especially true of the Tennessee Regiments. The best officers among them are those who only yielded to the popular madness at the eleventh hour. They say they are sick and tired of this unnatural warfare; that they have been misled by the poli ticians first, and betrayed by the Gen erels afterward. They have become most thoroughly disgusted with the bogus con federacy, and desire to withdraw from it at once. General Grant is not idle after his vic tory, and, with his accustomed energy, is already arranging his command for moving onward to still grester victories. The Confederate officers confirm the statement that Bowling Green is evacu ated, and assert that General Johnston will concentrate every available soldier in hi3 commaud at Nashville, and make a desperate attempt there to retrieve the misfortunes of the past. The examination of the enemys works from the inside reveals even greater strength than was apparent from our lines. Their field works are immense, extending five or six miles, and laid out with much millitary skill. Twenty five thousand men ought to have held them against double their strength. The rebel surgeons with whom I have conversed, place their loss in killed and wounded in all the engagements about the fort, at from 300 to 400 killed, and double that number wounded. Caiko, Feb. 18.
