FRIDAY EVENING. OCT. (1, 1871. KEEP IT BEFORE TIIE PEOPLE, THAT UNDEH THE FUNDING KILL THE TAXESOF THE STATE WILL Bl NOT LESS THAN ONE DOLLAR ©POM THE HUNDRED DOLLARS' VALUA TION, OR DOUHLE WHAT THEY That under the Funding Hi it* not a dollar in money will kver reach the State Treasury at pre sent RATES, AS THE COUPONS ARD made receivable for taxes, and will all uk bought up ivy the County Treasurers at a discount, and turned over to the state in libu of money ! ! Wedefy Treasurer Rye, or any'olher mini, • deny these proj>ositions. Why is the Richmond press silent on this question t THE "RICHMOND WHIG" MILL SOUND ON FINANCE. The Whig of yesterday morning, allu ling to our standing ol>jcction against the Funding Bill, to wit: That it will double the taxes, and that the payment will be nade iv coupons instead of money l>y the ocal treasurers, says: "The objection* lo he Funding Bill here presented are those chick were, urged from day to day by the Whig when the bill icas pending." We iresumc that it still entertains the same views, and we can pardon the little out- I ireak of ill nature which precedes and fol- | ows, in our pleasure at finding so able an j ally as the Whig in the field. It asks, "What was the Statu Jour- i nal doing?" and answers: "Actively co ■perating with the stock-jobbers and ! irokers in support of the bill." We can- j lot speak conclusively as to the State | Journal before it came into our bauds. The present management hits been hostile to the bill from the first moment when its terms were examined. And to us it does not matter if every member of our party voted for it; we recognize no right of dic tation from any man or party, as to what we shall advocate, or what we shall de nounce, as against our own clear convic tions of right and sound policy. While we accept the principles of the Re publican party as our political faith, and believe that if faithfully and honestly ap plied, all the blessings of good government will be realized to our people, we do not always agree with specific measures, which may command, for the moment, a majority of the party vote. We will not sacrifice the position of an independent journalist for party favor. No true friend of the party can desire us to do so ; for with free dom of opinion all real power ceases in man or newspapers. There is a legitimate field for criticism insido the party, as inside the family, and he is no true friend of a party who covers up its faults or fails to" point out its mistakes, which may be injurious to the public welfare. The State Journal desires to stand for the good of the whole people in every issue, as against the privileged few, and it will try to bring its party to its own views of right and policy, as well as the people at large of all parties. Parties arc for the people ; not the people for tiie parties. They should emulate each other in dis covering and applying remedies for every wrong, and removing every possible obsta cle from the path of human progress. They should be prompt to seize upon every good measure and make it their own wherever it originates. Otherwise, they are enemies of the people, and deserve on ly condemnation. They are frauds and conspiracies against mankind, and will speedily come to ruin as they deserve. While we are not the slave of party, neither are we the slave of consistency. Indeed, we make no pretensions to that kind of consistency which forbids us to see to-day's duties by to-day's sunlight. All who do not expect to be stereotyped must change with the changing light. If we are wrong to-day and see it to-morrow, we are not afraid to say so. AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE SCRIP. The disposition of this fund should be fully discussed by our agricultural friends at their meetings during the State Fair, shortly to be held in this city. It was fully developed "during the discussion before a joint committee of the two branches of the Bral Assembly, that the true intent of rant by Congress, was not brought inently forward, or received with much . This fund consists of the proceeds of sale of 100,000 acres of public lands ; which, at the rate of ninety cents per acre, (the price lately realized by l/misianii,i would amount to sjs'27o,ooo—the State is made trustee of the fund, and security that the principal shall be preserved intact; the annual interest being available Etc expeudi !e from year to year ; this, even nt eight cent., giving only (91,000 as the an il available fund lor the purposes of tho I Congress appropriated these pi*'. M ils for the purpose of establishing in each te one or more institutions, in which Un cial objects of instruction should be ed tiou in the different branches pertaining The special, leading intention, was that instruction in all that relates to agriculture and niechtt!nics shoulil have prominence and preference —other studies bting permitted as incidental. I'niversities and college-, devoted to purely scientilic and literary education, w«v est_blished and flourishing in every settled State. Their object—and a noble object—to (jtialify pupils for pwfeMimml life, as lawyers, doctors, min-. _ten of religion, or as politicians and M_M-ntisls. These institutions were admira bly adapted to their legitimate purp.'-c, but were not desirable, even if accessible, for the education of the sons of the great and growing middle class of farmers and mechanics. Apart from the cost of defraying the heavy college dues and personal expenses of his sons, at one of these universities or colleges, the farmer or mechanic feared, and with good reason, that the tastes of the Sooked to as his help and successor, c diverted from the loss attractive, substantial pursuit which it was 1 he should follow, to the bril )iit too often delusive career of >r politician. "College-bred" was :u Upon as essentially resulting in distaste for labor; hence, parents who de pended upon labor for success themselves, feared their sons should look away from, or down upon it. Yet analytical science is now a necessary adjunct to agriculture, as mathematical science is necessary to the skilled, and es pecially to the inventive mechanic; and to supply the recognized need of an institution where labor and science can go hand in hand, was the purpose of this appropriation of public lands ; that fanners and mechan ics, who created the national wealth, Ruld have some equality of opportunity 1 those who sßhply administered thai he appropriation being clearly for the efit of those engaged in agriculture and the mechanic acts, the immediate represen tatives of those interests should certainly have a voice, if not entire direction, in the lisition of it; and no time will be more er and opportune for the full discus of the subject, than when our agricul ts meet our mechanics during the Fair week. In every State the established tuiivcr.-i --ties have made plausible argument, and UM_ persistent effort, to control the fund. They say with a show of propriety, "the fond cannot be used for erection, of build ings, and it is too small to found a new in- X.ion of magnitude suilieient for useful- We have our buildings ready, our re-rooms and apparatus are at the ser vice of agricultural students; and in addi tion they can avail themselves of our strict ly literary or scientilic advantages." This may be all true, but tho purpose of the fund was different, aud we suggest that the legitimate object bo kept in view—the fund used n a nucleus to attract donations by public-spirited, wealthy men, until it has reached sufficient magnitude to found a college devoted to agriculture and mechan ics, separately, or combined; which may be not only a fountain-head of prosperity, by wedding labor to science, but a public or nament and an attraction. As Deucalion is said in fable to have sown dragons' teeth, which sprang up armed men from mother earth, from her bosom, must spring the power which shall confront and destroy the demon o poverty which stalks over Virginia. It is now an idle boast to say of her fields— "you may tickle them with the hoe, ant they will laugh corn." Too often ayear o steady toil finds the farmer poorer on the la-t, than he was on the first clay. Labor alone will not succeed ; science must go afield with her, and together they wil bring home a more profitable harvest. A practical mode of proceeding in this matter, and not only practicable, but sim ple and effective, is that a special conven- I tion of agriculturalists and mechanics meet ! during Fair week, and thoroughly discuss I what shall be done with the fund ; choose a strong commission from those assembled, or who, though absent, are known farmers friends, and authorize them to investigate the matter thoroughly and practically, and, as the result of their investigation, prepare a bill to be presented to the next Legisla ture, and ui'ti.e upon the people at large to I instruct their representatives to support I the bill. This commission would also be charged with the task of canvassing for do nations in aid of the College. These wil be forthcoming when it is once decided thai the fund will be properly employed ant practically managed. Then we shall have a College, and a College which will fulft its proper mission, and become a grant success. ELECTION TICKETS.
