THE DAILY APPEAL
::::: Editor. Tmdir Morntnc. Xt. 19. 1BJ A PLEA FOS THE SCHOOL CEILB3IN We tinted at a matter which has rluimed our attention for some time past, th other tiny, in or.r semi annual addrea?. Vt'c mean the public school question. The Misses Clnpp and Euri cuck keep an excellent private school, and we are glad to see that thej are en joying a sufficient decree of prosperity to enable them to make some needful repairs upon their Seminary betiding. 3'r. Lawlor kept a pood school, we be lieve, while his Institute was in exist ence ; and we have no doubt that Lieut, limns and bis assistants are proving themselves fully competent to perform the requisite duties at the Public School. Bat while private enterprise is sus taining and improving the Sierra Sem inary, and while the teachers of the town school are ail that could be de sired, tbe accommodations for public scholarj are meanly and lamsntslily de ficient. Ins:ead of having tbe most rommodious and test arranged public school house in the State, as we eu-ht 19 have, the children who see free tuition are compelled to scramble fur it. as it wete, in a crowd, so limited end insufficient are the dimensions nnd ar rangements of the old stone structure. The very larpst and most liberally ar ringed school house in the State oucbt to b here, instead. Such an in-tim-l ion, as we believe, would prove, pecuniarily, the very best investment that cor.Id be made. There are hun dreds of families living in San Fran cesco whose main reason for residing there is because of the superior educa tional advantages which that city affords their children. Excellent schools bate kept cp the importance of Itenicia and compensated its property owners for the removal thence of tbe State Capitol. We have bad our terni-occ.ision-il growl over this matter, pretty much in tliis strain, ever since the Api'Ial was etarted and the " influence of the press" is beautifully exhibited by the result tbe public school has only fallen little short of holding its own ! Dur ing all this time, we have proposed some remedial plans of our own, and bve given all others that gave any signs of eucces., our support and en couragement. We have ecolJed and pleaded and tried to be pathetic, all in vain; the tax-payers have said " no " to every proposition that amounted to anything ; and the non tax pijing children who are most interested in the matter didn't Vote at ail ; and the swarm bo) j au I giris ii3 kept oa increasing until, at ri'iess time, the old stone chebaag looks Iik; a gref.t, cgly, over grown beehive. Njir we believe that toe case is not altogether hopeless yet. In a place where it hag provea so easy to raise the means, by voluntary contribution, to build three churches which must kave cost, ii the aggregate, not less than fif teen or tweaty thonsand dollars, there 'I'ljat ta te public spirit enocgh remain ing 13 ecccurag; a scheme which will increase the school fund without levy ing an additional property tav. Sup- posa we pet together, eoue of us, and I organize a I.ycenm, such as they Lave -i the New England towns, and have a series of k-rtuies from tbe competent ones here ia town. A lecture once a week or so, and an admission U of ; t, . , ,, , , , I i t cents or a. dollar, would afford ns , . , .1 m irli entertainment during the commc i '"t, winter ni-hu, and, tnavhe, lay tbe rest SC for a hanlsome school building f ind, which would enable the Trustees t erect a good, larg?, substantial edi fice, fit to ercoraniodme every one of! the several hundred children of alleges that need n 1 are anxious for the advan tgs which a well regulated, "gradu ated school " would offer. Perhaps a better an J more promising plan than this of our suggesting could he deeised, if meeting could be convened of tbe more practical and sagacious of onr, townsfulks. Who will giro a helping ! hand toward getting this mailer into j shape ? Th Preidkst's) Coll.

Eebli, November 15. The Third North German Parliament was opened to-dav bv the King of Trussia, who congratulated the members in general, and gave a cordial wel come to those provinces now for the first time represented. The conflict with the two States of Sutith Germany now allied against Prussia was no longer to be feared. In set tling the future relations of the Sou'h Ger man States with the Confederation, Prussia would studiously endeavor to reconcile the views of their Catholic sut jects with the in ternal and international interests of the Fatherland, lie con luded his speech with a declaration of the peace of Iv.irope.

TSOH XEZICO- Xew York, November 16 The steamer Georgia from Vera Cruz, October 12, brings several gentlemen on business connected with financial negotiations for the Republics of Mexico and Bolivia. Salm Salin has chosen Vera Cruz cs the place of his confinement. The Princely style in which the New York bloods make reparation fur any mishaps which their snorting proclivi ties occasion among their d-pendents is chronicled ns follows by Sat inells, the Snn Francisco Call's New York correspondent : The fashionable thing of the dty. the Jerome Park races, did not com mence last week, as was expected. The gloomy weather occasioned a post poneuienl. Yesterday, though, they began, and an immense crowd of peo ple, chiefly of the better class of our p ipulattnn. attended, in nil t:ie glory ol tine clothes arid fine t-q'iipnges. A melancholy accident tnrew hti ftir ot giooui. however, upon the whole day's proceedings. The lending attraction of that day .' a hurdle-nice, and as it is a regular break-neck e ii'rir, of course curiosity was at its higbt to see xvbo would be thrown, what horses would fail in leaping the hurdles, and which one would bolt the course altogether to avoid th leaps. And a fall ih l ta!;e place : for the horse ' Ncgrita." in t;ilving the second hurdle, went down iieadiiin,;, throwing his rider Hud till ing on him bodily. The rider's skull was cru-bed ia au instant. Still the poor fellow lived about twelve minutes, durinn which time the race continued, and the horse that was third in leaping the first hurdle was quite ahead in leap, the last. TLe dead j tckey was a pjan employed in the stable of Mr. Jerome, an 1, had beirged permission to ride in the race. Mr. Jerome esteemed him much, and, like a generous man, mnde the widow a present on the spot, of a house and lot worth ten thousand dol lars. A subscription was also taken np on the race course, and the owner of the lucky horse decided to sell him and give the proceeds to the widow. Altogether the poor woman will have about eighteen thousand dollars to con sole her in her bereavement. Of course there are not people wanting to add that she ouabt to remirry and lose an other busbtnd ia this manner, since the m-:aucboly event has proved so irofitKb!e ! A bandimp followed the burdle-iace, and two additional races, one i f them a sweepstakes, closed tLe dav's entertainment. Tre Pbopiral's Rktcr. The San Francisco Call alludes to the recent arrival of two celebrities ia Sun Fran cisco in the following strain : In the list of passengers who left New York for San Francisco on the fte.tiiT of the 1 ltb instant, we notice the names of Calhoun Benban and Elder Jacob Knap. Tbe latter is tbe famous reviv alist preacber, and tbe former is the prodical son, who, fix years ago, de serted the fatness of California lard to feed on the busks of rebellion. lie has bad his fill of tbe Initcr, and now comes back, humbled, if rot penitent : out there is no fi'ted calf to be kild for him. We wonder if Benham re members tbe famous propecy te made in lStlo, to wit : That in case of civil war, grass would grow in the street of New York within a few months ? He was partially right, but not in tbe sense he intended it. Grassis green, and so is tbe money which Hooded New York as tbe result cf tbe Rebellion. If Ben ham will make a proper use of bis un doubted abilities and good qualities, be may notwu'ustanding his shortcom ings become a useful citizen of this State. He w ill be three weeks tinder the holy rninist.-nt ons of Elder Knapp, and if be is not "revived" at the end tf that time, salt will not fcave him. Srr-PosKD Sharp Practici. Several weeks ago Secretary McCullocb received from an anonymous scource a package postmarked Crbana, Ohio, containing 19,000', the larger portion of which was in 1 30 bonds. The money was placed to the credit of the conscience fund. Recently a letter was received from a t.ian in Wisconsin, claiming tbe money to he converted into other se curities, such as tbe President might thick proper to send, and gave as his reason for forwarding no signature to his communication, that he was very sick at tbe time and notable to write. Tue officers of the Treasury are of the opinion that the letter is from some party who saw the publication that $19,000 had been received and thinks be can claim the same. An Americas Acthos Abroad. Mr. llnncrtfi is in clover at Berlin. The Crown Princess, instead of waiting for court etiquette, " being, snya a cor respondent, evidently desirous of hav ing a personal ii.terview with Mr. Ban croft, broke through all forms and got herself presented. And ' ber remarks were most flattering and complimentary to Mr. Bancroft." It would seem that there has been no such royal tribute to literary genius in Berlin si non Voltaire visited the Court of Frederick.
