''Three Honrs School a Day." Mr. Editoe, In a former article, I endeavored to meet a few considerations urged in favor of the Three Hours plan. I wish now, more particularly to suggest a few ideas in opposition to the proposed ystem. A fundamental objection to the plan would appear to lie upon the face of it, but very little could he done by way of intellectual improvement in so short a time. Under the best arrangement that could be made, three, four, or even five hours a day, with recesses and necessary interruptions would be too little to insure & proportionate degree of mental culture. I refer to scholar generally for some, as for instance, young scholars, less than six hours might be sufficient, and would, perhaps, be better, in fact, the youngest scholars are not now kept in school, gen erally, more than four or five hours. On the other hand, some students can spend more than six hours in study, (in the school-room, if you please) not only without injury, but with much profit ; so that six hours is, perhaps, a proper me dium. The two elementary branches, reading and spelling, ought, in schools generally, to have about three hours' time each day, (what would become of them with only three hours' time in school for anything?) and the remaining three hours with a proper classification of studies, will allow a fair amount of attention to other things. I do not see how any practical teacher can think that this is giving too much time to mental improve ment. The "three hours" plan, as it appears to mo, supposes a state of things, which does not and cannot exist. If children were, in any respect, machines, if they could always be up at a definite time, do just such an amonnt of work or play, or what you please in just so long a time, if they could always be in the school-room at just such a minute, and at that minute, take their mind from every thing else, and be prepared to give their -uninterrupted attention, for three hours, to study or recitation, education would be a very different thing from what it is now. IJut who does not see that such a state of things can never exist ? As well might we expect that the weather might he always uniform as that scholars will always be what we might wish them to he. Under the best possible arrange ment, there must be more or less of in terruption in the attention of scholars, if not in the order of recitations ; and in very many winter schools, with half day sessions, but very little could be accom plished. By the time that many of the scholars would gut fairly engaged in their studies, and before there could be time to do anything like justice to the recitations, school would be done forth': day; and whatever might be done; by way of study or " thinking" out of school, it would al together be a broken up affair. "While there is, of course, a limit to the direct ratio of time spent, and improvement, still, to say that this is a case where "more requires less," seems to me absurd ; and while it cannot be denied that our school (system needs much improvement, I can not believe that a change in the number of school hours would be an improve ment. I think it would be decidedly detrimental to the prosperity of our Schools; A word in regard to " Manual Labor." I am by no means disposed to depreciate the importance of physical education, boys, (and girls too) should be taught to labor, but is it advisable to have a " man ual labor department" connected with schools ? Can we expect a plan of that kind to succeed ? It may be easy to an swer these questions in the affirmative, and to speculate upon plans ; but it should be borne in mind that theroyh one thing, practice, quite another. I am well aware that I have not, rhet orically, at least, done justice to the sub ject, but I presume that your readers will be of the opinion that I have " cov ered ground enough" for one communica tion. A TeACHEU. Gov. Eeeder in Eeply to the President. 3 "Washington City, Jan. 28. ; Gentlemen : The Special message f the President of the United States, communicated yesterday to Congress, as sails not only myself personally, but also my constituents, whom inclination as well w duty, imperiously demands of me to justify and protect. Entirely satisfied as I m with the course adopted, up to this te, by the people of Kansas convinced that is has been dictated by a desire to preserve the peace, the reputation and glory of our country-knowing that it has at every stage, been characterized by most conservative moderation and lauda ble regard for the rights of others hav ing seen at every step the plainest mani festation of an anxious desire to avoid even the semblance of encroachment or aggression, I should be false to every manly impulse and every sense of duty, if I allowed the aspersions of the Message t pass unnoticed. Unless the Message shall incite and stimulate to new invasion of our Territo ry and fresh outrage upon our citizens, U .'-" reduce to us no regret, as if hub caused no surprise. After having seen our people trampled on, oppressed and robbed, on the one 'hand by the invaders of their soil, and on the other by the in fluence, the authority and the officers of the present Administration; after having witnessed the cold-blooded murder of an unarmed and unoffending citizen by an officer of the Administration, who is not only unmolested by the laws and unre buked by the President who appointed him, but who has, perhaps, strengthened his ofHcial tenant and enhanced his chances of promotion by the act ; it is not at all surprising that we should, by the head of that Administration, be misrepresented and perverted: After having seen the Chief Magistrate, during five organized invasions of our Territory, unmoved by a single sympathy in favor of an unof fending people, innocent of all wrong, aed laboring only to carry out faithfully for themselves the doctrine of self-government, and to build up and extend the greatness of our country after having seen our invaders coming upon us armed (without reproof it not not with official permission,) from the contents of the ar senals of the United States, establishing a system of martial law over life and property regulated only by the ucon trolled will of vindictive and irresponsible men; a system under which life wa3 ta ken and property destroyed ; the high ways obstructed; travellers seized, search ed and detained ; all the pursuits of life paralyzed, and the destruction and ex termination of whole settlements threat ened and evidently intended backed up by the sanction and authority of the Fed eral officers, who pledge publicly the co operation of the President, and all based upon the fact that a man encouraged, per haps aided by his friends, had made' his escape from arrest on a constable's peace warrant after having thus seen our nat ural and legal protection joining in the most atrocious measures of oppression and wrong, it is no matter of surprise to see misrepresentation of our position and our objects emanating from the same soured. This is not tile mode nor the time in which to discuss the themes of this mes sage. Expecting, as I have a right to expect from the clearness of the exclu sive title I am prepared to show, that I shall enjoy a seat and a voice on the floor of the House, I am willing patiently " td bid my time." At the proper time and place, however, I pledge myself to medt and expose the mis statements of facts and the errors of law and logic which it con tains. I will show that there is nothing but cold cruelty and insult in the request of an appropriation to pay an army or a posse to prevent the people of Kansas frnn the commission of outrage and trea son. I Will show that tlifi mnvdmpnlo for a State government is misstated'as to the facts of its origin and proress. and all that wc have done in this direc tion has been under the sanction of the precepts and examples of all the great men of the country for the last fifty years of the legislation of Congress and the action of the Executive on repeated and well-considered cases, and of a deliberate opinion of a high and distinguished At torney General of the United States, and which, as it is a part of the archives of the Executive Department it is to be regretted the President did not consult before the delivery of the Message. If it is illegality and incipient treason for a new State to be formed without an enabling act of Congress, I will show that fourteen Senators of the United States hold their seats, and seven States stand in this Union by virtue of illegal and treasonable proceedings that Congress has sanctioned revolution, illegality and treason, again ; and that the rank and noxious weed has even flourished in the White House and the Executive Depart ment ; and having vindicated my people, I will also, with the utmost confidence of success, proceed to the minor and second ary task of vindicating myself in such a manner, I trust, as to show the attack to have been ill-advised and unfortunate. As to the discussion in the message of the points involved in the contested seat, I shall meet them when the case is heard, and as the House is the sole constitutional judge of the qualifications of its own mem bers, I trust that the minds of members may be kept open and unprejudiced until they shall hear the law and the facts of the case, and that whether the discussion by the Executive of some of the points involved, has been made because they were incidental to another subject, or aimed and intended to prejudge my claim, I hope in either case that both sides may be heard before a decision. This hasty note has swelled to an un premeditated length. Its object is only to solicit irom the House and the public a suspension of judgment, as to the posi tion and action of our peopleas to my right to a seat, and as to the charges against me in the message, until I can be heard. Very respectfully yours, A. H. REEDER. nrZZ7 ecchiastical council for the organization of n i i. t . under the name of the Union Congrega on Inursday last. v - SPEECH Of WM. H. SEWARD of New York, on the Central American Question, in Senate, Jan. 31st. .' Mr. Seward reviewed at length the history of the Central American question, including the proceedings of Great Brit ain in the island of Ruatan,and combated with great power the argument of Lord Clarendon on the points at issue between the two governments; and he arrives at the conclusion that the American posi tions are just, and the American demands right. He then asks, what ought the United States now to do? and proceeds to the conclusion of bis speech as fol lows: " I can now only glance at some of the circumstances which afiect the question. I regret that in any case it involves the possibility of war, although I believe war sometimes justifiable. I regard it always, nevertheless, as a calamity and an evil. I do not agree with either those who sup pose it contributes to national prosperity, or those who declare it a salutary disci pline of state. . I should therefore deeply deplore any war with any nation, and, more than any other, war with Great Britain. Its wealth and influence easily secure allies, for in such a contest the ad jacent American States at least would co-operate with us. It would therefore be a general war, and consequently more extensively injurious and widely demor alizing than any other in which we could be engaged. It would, moreover, renew and practically perpetuate an alienation between two fraternal states, on whose common guidance, only secured through their concord, the advancing nations largely depend. I deprecate a war, moreover, because it ean be avoided, unless there shall be fault on both sides or on one side, and therefore, in one sense it would be an unnecessary conflict; Notwithstanding the occasional occurrence of misappre hension and irritations, the world is yet wide enough, for both nations, and for all nations. We are the centre of one sys tem, an American one ; Great Britain is another one, an European one. Almost in spite of ourselves, we are steadily ex tending and increasing our control over those continents. Notwithstanding her tenacity, she is constantly losing her do minion here. This is within the order of nature; It wa? for three hundred years the business of European nations to col onisej discipline and educate the Ameri can nation. It is now the business of those nations to govern themselves. The decline Of European here practi cally began with the fall of Canada out of the control of France in 1763. It has steadily continued, until now only some relics possessing little vitality remain. Without any war on our part, Great Britain will wisely withdraw and disap pear from this hemisphere within a quar ter of a century at least within a half a century. War might hasten, but might also delay it. I regret also, that a war, if it must come, must also probably con cur with the irreat conflict which now convulses Europe; The British administration has Ion" been unfaithful to the cause of free in stitutions in Europe, and the French Empire is, in my eyes, a hateful usurpa tion; IN e vertheless, both of these admin istrations are temporarily and practically ephemeral, while the Russian Empire is an obstinate and portentous reality. I accept the oracular exposition of the first Napoleon, and believing that " Europe must become either Republican or Cos sack," I fec'bgnise beneath the monarch ical mask of the Allies, the Western na tions contending against an advancing despotism; Although nd duty and no propriety requires its to Intervene on their side, I should be very unwilling to engage my country in a combination against them. Nevertheless, a war with Great Britain is now among the possible solutions of the present embarrassment. We certainly can look for no moderation on her part hereafter, if we overlook her persistent refusal to fulfill this most sol emn and important of all bur interna tional engagements, it will be an idle dream to suppose ourselves free and safe, if we leave her to waylay us on all sides of our Isthmus passages from our Atlan tic region to the Pacific States. Nor do I fear a war, having justice and a high state necessity on our side we outnumber the population of the British Islands. Their dependencies de tract from, instead of lending strength. Although we have realized wealth, we have infinitely greater resources than Great Britain, and our revenues, suscep tible of large increase, are practically free. Our recruiting ground is ample, as Great Britain well knows; for she has tried to enter it clandestinely. If there was any deficiency of native v6lunteers, Great Britain as well as other European nations has supplied us with this clement of war. We have a ctirps of military officers unequaled, and we have the foun dation of an effective navy that can spee dily be brought up and put in motion. In view of the circumstances, it seems to me wise to adhere to our demands, and yet to cast on Great Britain distinctly the responsibility of deciding upon peace r war. Some would advise us to propose arbi tration, but I think we have passed that point already. It would imply doubt of the rightfulness of the position on which we have elected to stand. As claimants out of possession, such indecision would be equivalent to abandonment. Besides, I do not know where we could find an impartial umpire, in the present disturbed condition of Europe. I do not think that Great Britain will choose a resort to war. Her government, hardly loss tlian Our own, is a popular one. This controversy grows out of a caprice of her own admin istration. A war will embarrass her prosperous industrial system, and could bring to her in retnrn no adequate advan tage, even if she were successful. My counsel, therefore, is a notice to Great Britain that we shall interfere to prevent her exercise of dominion to South America, if it shall not be discontinued within one year, and also that authority be now given the President to execute that delayed purpose. Great Britain may propose to us a reference, or some other amicable adjust ment. I would be ready to hear and to go to the very verge of accommodation, but this disposition I think ought not to persuade us to inactivity. If the wisdom of Congress shall approve this course, then the intervening time can be well and wisely Improved. No sagacious nation will ever hazard all its foreign dominion or influence, or the integrity of its territory, without bringing all its power into exercise. A nation that strikes for continental suprem acy, must at once render itself sustaining and independent. Before we expose California and Ore gon to the hazard of a war with the first naval power in the world, we must at least begin what has too long been de- layed already the construction of rail roads from the western borders of the Mississippi States to our ports on the Pacific; Although the controversy arises on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, yet the field of contest will now, as heretofore, lie north of the St. Lawrence. Canada cannot be conquered against her wilL She cannot refuse, if you tender her an nexation on just terms, with indemnity for the struggle she may experience with Great Britain. I have thus expressed my opinions with frankness.- I am not tenacious of them all. I invoke equal frankness and the broadest patriotism on all sides of this chamber, and in all parts of the country. If these shall be fully exercised, this day will inaugurate a new and important, and yet a peaceful triumph over the ancient colonial policy of Europe, honorable to ourselves and auspicious io all nations." 6 The office of sheriff of New Or leans, it was proved in the recent contest, is worth $100,000 per annum. The saw and grist mill of Wm. II. Cummings, in Westport, was burned about 12 o'clock ou Saturday night. Loss $3000 no insurance. Withiri a few years no less than seven representatives of foreign govern ments have married American ladies. 31" The Grist and Flourinsr mills of John Mcintosh, at Ancaster in Canada, were burnt on the 12th inst., together with 10,000 bushels of wheat and a quan tity of flour.

CiT The State of Maryland derives an annual income of $21,000 from lottery licences, but the Legislature has wisely provided for the extinction of the whole system in that State, after the expiration of the term for which the present lottery grants were issued. C3T At a meeting of the Alton (Ohio) Horticultural Society, on Saturday last, it was stated by Dr. Hall, others confirm ing the statement, that on an examina tion of the fruit buds of peach trees in that vicinity, it had been found that the recent severe cold weather has destroyed the promise of a yield of luscious fruit the coming season.

The first an nouncement was made by the Vienna telegraph to the London Times, in these words " Russia accepts the allied pro positions unconditionally. This is au thentic" The announcement caused immense sensation. Funds frose three per cent, cotton dnc farthing, and a panic reigned in other markets. The next day govcrhment publij-hed a dispatch from Minister Seymour at Vi enna, as follows: u Russia agrees to accept the Allies proposals as a basis of negotiations." This qualified announcement curbed the excitement, and alarmists begin to fear that Russia merely seeks to gain time by deceptive negotiations. Mean time, funds remain steady. The War News .There is very lit tle other news. From the Crimea, nothing important. Numerous ambuscades of Cossacks are distributed around the allied camp, but vigilance prevents atrasrg'ers being captured. Several additional explosions had been made in the Sevastopol docks. The docks are now almost destroyed. r ranee and England each reserve one gate as a trophy. The Invalide Russe publishes a dis patch from Gortschakoff, saying that a party of French, wearing white cloaks to prevent being seen in the snow, advanced by night and surprised Baidar, bayoneted the outpost, and retreated when the Rus sian reserves came up. Sweden continues warlike prepara tions. The Copenhagen official journal denies the existence of any circular re pudiating the Swedish alliance on the part 6'f Denmark. St. Tetersburgh letters say that Mar shal Paskiewitch has bequeathed as his dying injunction to the Emperor, to make peace. He would never hav6 given this advice to Nicholas, whose battles he had fought ; but to the young Emperor, who had no hand in raising the war, he ured the policy of peace. The French council of war continues in session at Paris. Asia. Constantinople intelligence of the th reports Gen. Monravieff" advan cing in Asia. His advanced posts are within three hours march of Erzeroum. Omar Pasha's troops have begun to arrive at Treb'izond. The Egyptian con tingent has already embarked from Con stantinople for Trebizond. Omar Pasha tendered his resignation, but it is refused. He is in disgrace at Constantinople. The Turkish Government has pub lished an account of the fall of Ears, tending to throw the entire responsibility on Omar. He has sent Col. Simmons to defend him at Constantinople, but Sim mons finding himself supplanted there, has gone to England. Omar blames the Turkish Ministry, and especially Riga racha, tor withholding supplies. There w is some talk that Omar will be sent as Turkish Minister to England. Abdel Kader has arrived in Damascus, to occupy the place presented to him by the Sultan. Great Britain.
