I knew Jane, Duchess of Goidon,
intimately, and many pleasant hours
have I patted in her society. She
used to tay, "I have been acquainted
with David Hume and William Pitt,
and therefore I am not afraid to con

The Duchess told the following an
ecdote to Lord Stowell, who told it to
Lord Dunmore, who told it to me:
"The son of Lord Cornwallis ( Lord
Brone) fell in love with my daughter
Louisa, and she liked him much. They
were to be married; but the intended
match wat broken off by Lord C.

son's marriage with my daughter;
now, I will tell you one thing plainly
there is not a drop of tbe Gordon
blood in Louisa's body." With this
statement Lord C. was quite satisfied,
and the marriage took place. The
Duchess prided herself greatly on tbe
tucoeat of thit maneuver, though it
bad forced her to slander her owa
character so cruelly and so unjustly."

Who should be called to preside?
In your new book, "The Masonic
Code," I am a little surprised to find
the idea upheld that t ie Lodge
should always elect the same man to
the East, as long as he will consent to
hold the office. To this doctrine I am
opposed, and, with your permission,
w,n briefl7 S,ve my reasons
agk8 nothin8 from them in return for
I itself, but ao much as will render itself
fiermanent and seeure the olject of its
aws and principles. Now in order
that these laws, these principles, and
this charity, the chief corner stone,
should havj their perfect work they
must be always perfectly understood
Well, then. I ask any persou to visit
with me the Lodges of American Ma
sonry, from Dun to Beersheba, with
the sole view of finding out of se
lecting from each of those brothers
who are bright in the work and bright
in the law and, ray word for it,
ninety-nine in every hundred will be
fond among those who have presi
aeu ine,r wnoie year in tne jurist.
Nor cim this be supposed to have
arised only or chiefly from the fact
that of such are Masters made. I
will leave it to the experience of any
int dligent Past Master of a Lodge tu
say, if, in the performance of the
functions of the East, he has not re
ally learned more of Masonry than in
U other ways and positions together
When a zealous Mason is called to the
East, ihu very weight of responsibili
ty which devot es upon him who must
set the Craft at work toset it rightly
at work will cause him to redouble
his exertions in search of light; and

EXTBAORDIWART MbRRIAOX SCBBB.
The good people of Belfast, in Ireland,
were recently thrown into quite a state
of excitement by a marriage which
did not come off in that city. The
particulart are brieflj at follows:
On a certain morning a wedding
procession waa teen on the way to
wards a church, recruiting its number
as it went along. The gay lothario
was on the shady side of fifty, the
damsel had onlv heard it thunder for

his band and heart, and the pretty
bride's turn had come to utter the
usual rows, when, to the utter conster
nation of the spectators in general,
and dismay of tho bridegroom in par
ticular, she broke out with a most de
cided negative, lifted her feet, and
bolted out of the sanotuary a hard as
he could run. It is taid that a pre

Tough Story about A Lion.
Th following account of an adven
ture with a lion in the wilds of South
ern Africa, is extracted from a record
of an African sporting expedition, re
cently published in an English maga
zine: Whilst breakfast was preparing, I
proceeded to take a saunter down to
the pool, not without some faint hopes
of a bath, though I feared our horses,
to sar nothing of the other animals
who had visited it during the night,
might have muddied it too muoh for
that, However, I resolved to try, and
throwing my Minnie into the hollow of
my arm, and cocking my wide awake
over my eyes, lonoged down a path
among the bashes, now well beaten
by the feet of men and horses.
The latter I found up to their bellies
in the pool, enjoying themselves as
completely as the flies would let them;
but the water looking uncommonly
turbid, I thought ! would skirt along
a little to the left and look for a clean

yards of one of the finest male lion-. I
ever saw, and who was engaged with
a look of grave patriachal interest in
watching the movement ot the horses

breakfast. Have you seen Landseer's
catching of tbe lion in tho old Tower
Mansgerie? In exactly the same at
titude, still an unmoving, like a noble
statue, stood this neighbor of mine;
and, for a few moments, I remained
really lost in admiration of the grand
beauty of the "tableau" he presented.
It was, however, necessary to de
cide on some line of action immediate

chose to fire, but if I did not kill him
outright with one shot, he was so close

DXPAATMBBT OP PüBLIC InsTBÜOTIO,
Indianapolis, Feb. f., 1856.
C. L. McBKAr, Esq: Der Sir: In
reply to your favor af the 3 1st ult.,
just received, I am happy to say, it
will give me great pleasure to anawer
your questions in their order:
Question 1. Are the Schools regu
lated by tbe Township Boards to be
free to all unmarried persons over five
years of age?
Answer. Yes, and married too, if
they wish to attend. The specifica
tion of age, five and twenty-one, reg
ulates the - enumeration, but was not
intended to exclude any beyond that
limit. The exclusion of marrid per
sons under twenty-one years of age
from the school census, goes on the
assumption that their education is
complete, and that their domestic cares
would render their attendance imprac
ticable. If, however, any in the mat
rimonial state, find their education in
complete, and have the time and dis
position to enlarge their sphere of
knowledge, by atteuding the public
school, its doors are open to them,
and they are bid a hearty welcome to
its privileges. Some may from va
rious causes, find themselves at tbe i
age and stature of maturity with but!
little or no education. Tbe common- j
wealth is interested in their education,
and has made provision for all her
youth. Tho adult in stature and in I
years, in intellectual development and j
attainments may find himself a mere
youth, and therefore is a proper sub- j
ject of instruction, and a suitable per
son for admission to our free schools.
I respect the individual who esteems
knowledge so highly,
that he will en
j gge in ita "pursuit under difficulties," j
S B aw 1 S Ii
I ana would most cneeriuity
trj impediment tn hts pato. Our sym
pathies and th 3 -tat'ite harmonize, for
the 23d section recognizes the atten
dance of persons over twenty-one
years of age, without any intimation,
direct or implied, that matrimory is a
bar to their admission.
Question 1. Are the Townships
Boards empowered, in their discretion,
to qnarter the Teachers upon tbe in
habitants of the small districts to
board, without their consent, or ren
dering any compensation therefor?
And it not, does the payment of the
teacher's board come out of the school
fund proper, or out of the funds collec
ted in the township to defray the ex -

without any interference whatever on

may expect to be required to refund
every dollar. No excuse or apology
will Lu a substitute for funds thus di
verted from their legitimate object. If,
through ignoranoe of tbe law, they
have tinned in thit respect, the proper
mein -e oi penitence, and (lie appro
priate atonement for the fault, will be
they have been paid sinoe tbe passage
of the Revised School Law, for school
houses previously erected, or bave
been appropriated to school structures
now in progress of construction, tbe
authority for the aforesaid assessment
is undoubted, not merely unquestion
ed, but imperative, as the language of
the 9th section abundantly proves.
Errors in this matter must be correct
ed, and Trustee must not complain,
if they decline the statutory method
of correcting such mistakes, should
the reimbursement of perverted funds
be sought at their hands by the aid of
legal suasion "
Question. 4. Are the Trustees to
so divide and appropriate tbe school
funds in the township treasury among
the several districts or schools, aa
shall be necessary to keep up a school
for the same length of time in winter
Answer. Yes. bat this division of
apportionment must not be on the ba
sis of the number of scholars. It is
tin ir duty to employ a teacher for
each and all the districts an equal
length of time, with a wise reference
to the wants and wishes of each dis
trict as to the season of the year they
would rather have their school. The
Trustees, however, must exercise a
proper discretion in all cases. If there
are funds sufficient only for a three
months school, it must be at a season
that will best suit tbe older scholars,
for the obvious reasou that their school
period is rapidly drawing to n close,
and with many may terminate with
the current session. The law recogni
zes no numerical division of the school
funds, but requires the Trustees to
appropriate thera annually, so as to
secure to each district ao equal term
of tuition. If from an unavoidable
cause, no school should be taught in a
given district, it is just and equitable
that said district should have its loss
made up the next year. If Trustees
manage affairs wisely, such case will
be of rare occurrence, and when they
do happen, the necessary amount of
funds will be in the Treasury, for a
Board would be very indiscseet and
unwise to expend all the funds on the
schools in session, while one or more
districts are unprovided with teachers.
Question. Is it optional wiih the
Trustees to appropriate only a portion
of the funds to the continuance offreel'
schools, or is it their

Answer. The statute undoubtedly
contemplates nothing else than an an
nual appropriation of all the school
funds of every township, except in
. . warn . t tk a . . I
cases uescrirjeu. in tne answer to me
previous question. The Trustees have
no authority to defer the appropriation
abT ! J 4aeiaJ a k sbWAB SbheStematBatl Bja w 'ln e
of said funds to the succeeding year,
except in coses of unavoidable neces
sity, which will very seldom occur;
nor arc they required to appropriate
them in advance of their reception by
the township treasurer, which is the
policy pursued in many corporations,
an unfailing source of pcrp exity and
imbarrassmcnt to tho Hoards, and no
small detriment to the cause. This
custom of anticipating the funds should
be abandoned at once. Let tie go on

The Political Convention System
What has it Done f
It has raised up a power between
the Constitution aud the people, utter
ly subversive of tho spirit of the one
and the rights of the other.
It has substituted the decisions of
intrigueing politicians in place of the
unbiassed judgement of the nation.
It has paralyzed and discouraged all
high disinterested publie sentiment,
making petty management its chief
qualification for political preferment,
and closing the door against patriot
ism, atatesmaofhip and personal inde
pendence. It has offervd lha liivbeat rewards
of the nation lo him wnn should most
sucffco&fully conceal hie real opinions
bef jru the election, and most shame
fully disregard them after.
It has closed the executive office
against the true merit, and filled pub
lic places, at home and abroad, with
incompetent men, who reoeive their
appointments as a reward of partizsn
It has substantially transferred from
the President to Senators and mem
bers of Congress the whole appoint
ment power, even dragging the na
tional judiciary into the vortex of its
usurpations, and subjecting it to (he
degraded standard of its morals.
It has generated irresponsibility and
recklessness in the national legislature,
increased our expenditures, demor
alized public agents, squandered the
public money, degraded the govern
ment, and weakened tbe bonds of
