Editob: A fowdgyi ago, I took it into my hood to vieit Indianapolie, and concludod, aa I was out on a tour of obaer vntlon,;thrtt I would call at fifholbyville and examine their graded tchool, and alto the building which they have erected for that ptirpoat). Thia I waa induced to do, that I might obtain all the information I could for the benefit of thoao who nro try ing to get up a home for that purpose, and school of that kind, In this placa. If you nro willing, I will give the result of my ob servation to you for the use of the public. The poo pi o of Sholbyville have, by taxa tion, built them a house, and are now sup porting a school of about flvo hundred children. The house is about ninety feet long and and sixty wide, three storied high, with eleven large rooms, one of v, hielt is the hall, in the third story. I spent one entire afternoon, oxamming the building, and witnoMing the operations of the school. The Principal, Mr. Moore, I found to bo very much of a gontleman. He took me through the apartments, and gnve ma nil the Information I uked relative to their modo of conducting the school, and also pointed out any defects which ho found to exist in the arranagement of the house: some of which were, the mode of warming i, the sire of the hall, which la too small, the want of sufficient ventila tion, and of a suitable place to deposit the hats, cape, cloaks, Ac. The preaent plan of warming is by stoves. It is thought that n furnace would bo preferable, both aa a matter of econmy and comfort I was much pleased with the arrangement and ot dor of the school. There are six grade, in which are graded all tho pupils in the school, according to their advancement in thoir studies. The highest department is taught by tho Principal, and at present consists of but a few recitations, separate ly, but he it all tho time, when not thus employed, in attendance in other depart ments, giving instructions and watching over the interests of the tchool. There is, in addition to those departments named, a German department, whero the German language is taught for accommodation of the Germans who wish thoir children to retain their vernacular language, and oth gem who wtsB theirs to acquire it This department is not graded as ara the others. Thia I think is wrong policy; while I think tbe German language should bo taught in our institutions of learning, I think that all children should commence and go regu larly as in tho English, but not to havo a distinction of nation kept up in different lutrta of the name community, in our sys tem of education So far at that particu lar locality it concerned, there is no blnme of course for this, their object in adapting it is only good; yot I think it will be found lo be an error, and one which they will ul timately change. It is certainly the worst of policy for tho Germans to desire to kevp their children exclusive. They will never bo able to do it Their children wilt not consent to it but will of their own accord, adopt tho language and habits of tho country; and tho more impediments aro thrown in thoir way, tho worto it will t be for them. Lot thorn acquire them through tho schools.nnd thoy will get thorn correct and puro, but deny them this, and thoy will get them through thote outer and surrounding influences which aro cor rupt and vulvar, and in so doing will iin bibo nil the poison with but little of tho Rood. With tho ordor In thii tchool I wm high ly deli mited; thoro laonobalf hourdovot od to each rucitation leaa flvo minutot for recoM; and all tho departments are under tho tame rulei, so that all recite at tho tamo time, and all have recess atjthotamo time; and the whole is controlled by tho sound of the boll. Thoy have no general roces?, when all the school go out upon tho play grounds, at It mott commonly tho caao, but can walk out and in, and enjoy tho freth air, and a relaxation from study of flvo minutes every half hour, which is all sufficient, and, I think, much better than tho ordinary way of confining them for an hour and a half, and then giving, them a longer time to romp and halloo out of door. They havo mora children in their school than thoro living insido tho corporation that are of lawful ago to attend; the ex cess is from the country. Thia speak well for tho intelligence of their commu nity, and also indicates their future, and I should hope would remove all grounds of fear as to their continuance, which I learned to bo. the case with some when I and aro looking up to them'.for a model. and pleading them as an oxample. Tho (township trustees of Lawrence -burgh township have introduced.tho tyt torn in our township for a term of flv e months, which is as long as tbey ba7e funds at presont) to justify. Sb far, t'ae school is doing well.but at there is.no hou se , largo enough to accommodato all, th ey . harve to bo divided into different 'houses, and scattered all through tho town; this- of course makes it moro difficult to carry out tho system. Thoy hope, however, to bo Letter from Her. I'eter Smith. Some of my friends appoar to think I am not in earnest in wanting a collage ti tle. They may, for aught I know, bo of the opinion that I am already groat enough man for my abilitios. But I am in earnest about this matter, for, at my present ago I find I am getting gray havo lost tovo ral 1 teeth, and besides, I havo had tho rhenmatit somo too, and I am really begin ning to havo troublesome fears that I'll dlo in my neat tomo of these nights, and I will bo forgotten in lett timo than I have livod. All our P. E.'s in this Conference save one, are A. M.'a and wo joor fellows who woro educated iu log ichool-hotitet,inttoad of in largo three story brick collogea, will have to hang up our fiddles, or else con tent onrtelvee, liko poor folks at a frolic, in occupying some dark corner where we may be called for only whon we are want ed. Hove smart men, and especially smart preachers, and would like mighty well to be amart mysolf, if circumstance allow ed it, and I think they would if I could succeed in getting a title, so the pooplo would call me "Dr. Smith" intteud of just aimply "Brother Smith." The people wouldn't know any better, for I know that once when I waa trnvoling with one of our ' Doctor" Preachers, wo stoppod with a good old clatt-leador to stay oil night and about midnight the good broth er came to our aleeping room, and ap proaching the bod, he asked, "Doctor, are you awake?" "Yea; what's the matter?" "Why, our baby's got the cholic awfully, and I thought may be you had tome med icine in your saddlebags that might help it" "Ob," said my bedfellow, " I'm not a baby doctor, I'm only a Preacher Doctor." The poor brother thought tho Doctor was a great man, and of course ' ho oxpected to have hit baby cured. Now, lam convinced, Mr. Editor, that the peoplo have the idea that the men wlio.have all these big titles have ynat ca- parities, nnd that if they can't cure the cholic in babies, tbey can do a good many other big things, and if moro of us had them, no doubt a vaat amount of good might bo done. I knov old Father Havens contends that it is necessary for those titled gentlemen to have thcte degrees, and theso editorial and Conference attentlont in ordor that thoy may pass muster in tho ministry, and havo equal rank with their brethren. In deed, he is said to bo of the opinion that, without theso honors and polito notices, many of kthom would scarcely over bo hoard toll of. But such old men who wero raised un der tho old dispensation, seem not to be aware of tho fact that the times aro chang ed, and that the peoplo don't now, like they usod to, think "laming rt dangerous thing." They havo changed mightily, and now nothing tickles thorn moro than for you to call thorn intelligent, nnd to tell them that you are glad they aro dis posed to appreciate learning, talents, and titles. Such a change will go hard with us poor fellows, who came into tho minis try too early to bring with us any titles, and too late to reap the re ward ofnatitr.il ability. Now, I want to remedy tho matter so far as I am personally concerned, by get ting you ami n fow moro of my old friends to obtain for mo n title of somo kind, ao that whon I go to Cincinnati, my good Uro House will give mo oue of hit prettiest little notices, and that I may havo somo hopo in my lifo time of being a P. E., and of getting a few invitations, at least, to dedicate Churches, &c, dec. I was telling rt brother the othor day, that I wanted to obtain thodegreoof A. M. "Why," said ho, "dont tho people know you are u inin Itter now, without that? A. M ," he con tinued, "only moant 'a minister,' and I think 'Reverend' it just at good as A. Ml" Well, thought I, if that la all that is sig nified by that decree, Ibeliova I will atriku in for D. D. I know tome tay this means "Dirty Dog," hut that it only its political moaning. It has a different meaning am ong preachors, mid Icant(wcll gctit out of my head if I was culled "Dr. Smith," or if the world would see my namo in the papers tho Advocate, for instance, as "Rov. Potor Smith, D. D.," everybody would Uv lieve at onco that I was a great man, and it is quito probable I would bo spoken of as tho successor of Dr. Curry, of the Atbury University, and I might bo culled upon to dedicate at least two churchot ovory year thereafter. I confoas, Mr. Editor, I felt a little mor tified that you didn't notice my first latter with nn editorial. This I think yousho'd have done, that is, if you had any deairo, for mo to obtain any one of tho desirod honors, Hoping you will do better for tho future, I pardon you for the past. Respectfully, yours, Rev. Peteb Smith. Letter front Ilev, W. W. Murder. Bro.. Good win.

Were you to give $25,000 for thit purpoto, you would be better off after giving than before. Tho graded schools will only increase the demand for schools of a higher order. All are awaro that tho languages and ornamental branches, cannot be taught iu the gradod schools. Within a year, there will perhaps be 40 in our school that will have to go from home to graduate. Now, that you are beginniug to turn out graduates, the friends of your institution will rapidly multiply. You havo already given au impetus to educa tion that begins to dovolop ilself in brae tieal results. The "Moore's Hill Collegi ato Institute" is the legitimate daughter of Brookville College. The little money that ono of your agents took from that place, roused thorn to resolve and to act in behalf of home. A Sue buiiding, and a good school is the result.

But the place of Mr. Sumner tili de- talnod at homo by dangoroug illness caus ed by murdorous and cowardly blows which that dead arm had inflicted was vacant; as if to remind all spectators of tho groat cri me against ordinary manliness, against th Constitution, against tho digni ty and rinht of a sovorcign State, of W ag which tho decoated hod been the instru ment. Over all the acene, too, hung the a wo which death, sudden and fearful as the intervening haud of God, Dtutt natur ally inspire. The example of silence, if not of forgetfulnest, was given in the pros euco of the personal and political friends of the Senator whom Mr. Brooks had so cruelly injured, and of the State whoso representative he had feloniously stricken to the earth. And yet in spite of all these circumstances there was found a man to call up there, ovor that poor dead body, the recollection of tho assault on Mr. Sum ner, and, with loud praise of tho deed, to flout not only the solemnity of the hour, but tbe very Ilouso which had left its proper business, and granted its Hall to the performance of tho funeral. Is Mr. Sav- nge a fool or a madman thus to violate all propriety? Did ho mean from behind the defense of a coffin to hurl a tafo insult a the friends of Mr. Sumner, at the Republi cans in Congress, at the House, which had cxpellod Brooks, and at tho deliberate judgement of the whole country which justified that expulsion? Or was it a wrotched piece of bravado, uttered by one of thoso who woro privy to tho crime be fore it was committed; who, indeod, put its commission upon Brooks, and who feel that its shameful responsibility still clings to them? On these points wo shall ex press no opinion. Whether Mr. Savage is a fool, a madman or a braggart is of little consequence. His words of yestorday woro nn on tragi to tho sacred doccncics of death, and a dcfiauco to tho common eense and tho public opinion of the world. They havo raised hini for a moment out of the obscurity of his habitual existence; but they raiso him only to be tho tnnrk of universal disgust and contempt. iV. Y. Tribune- Political Mormons.
