yluB.jiiiii is. Charlestown, Jefferson Co., W. Va. Ornci (■“Jimasox Building.’ Saturday, May 10. IS79. The bill t<> prohibit military interfer ence at the polls was reported to both houses «>f Congress oo Tuesday. It passed the house by yeas 1* •, r.avs DO—all the greeubackers presect voted with the democrats. (Jen. John T. Morgan, Unitorl States Senator from Alabama, an orator of splendid abilities, and who was a soldier of distinguish ed services, has accepted the invitation to deliver the oration in Winchester oo Memorial Day—June G:h. The jury in the ease of Cox at Atlanta, f< r the killing of Col. Alston, rendered a ver <.ict of guilty, and recommended imprisonment for life. Judge Ilillycr then sentenced him to imprisonment and hard labor for the term of - liis natural life. A motion for a new trial was made, and a stay of execution of the sentence for twenty days ordered. A nuinlHT of gentlemen, Directors, Re presentatives of Mock, and others, who were in attendance open the meeting at Winchester of the S. V. R. R. Co., on Wednesday, upon teaching Charlestown boarded the ** Fairfax ” and made a tour of observation of the com peted line from ti e Clarke hue to Shepherds t jwn, returning to Charlestown in time H r sup per. Maj. Hunter, of the Winchester Times, was of the number, arid we shall expect to see o paragraph iu his ntxt paper concerning the beauty of the country and the rich promise of cr os that were presented to his view. Noth iug like it cud be seen elsewhere iu thi* State or Valley we are sure. The editor of the Sheplienlstown l\e<j Kr declares that the Free Press has show n u malicious persistency in misstating him on the Free School question, and he also says: ••We have announced our opposition to the /Vec S-kwtl I aw of llt»l rirjiaia, and still adhere to it, as being pregnant with uianr injustices, which we apprehend arc apparent to every reasonable and reflecting man.” There has been no issue between us as tc the law. We l are no doubt in our own mint! of its teed of improvement. But we deny that we have at all mis-stated him. lie is vul nerable enough without misrepresentation — D;J ho stigmatize the theory of free school* as embracing the “germ of socialism"? Probably corno)or.Urn is not a subject of condemnation in bis estimation! Annual Mooting of the Stockholders of tho Shenandoah Valley H. K. Co. The annual imvtingof ihe^tx-kholtltTs of the S. V. R. It. Co. was held at the Taylor Hotel, W inched *r, Va., on Wednesday, the Tib ia-t. There was a full repres -at iti >o of stock and an unusual interest manifested in the road now in progress of construction. Col. Mann Spitler of Page County, Va., was appointed Chairman and llaj. R. \V. Hunter and Jos. T. Wright were ap pointed Secretaries of the meeting. The report of the President and Board of Directors briefly reviewed the results attained during the past year, and presented the ground of belief that there will be a vigorous prosecution of the work during the present year. The subject of an out 1 t to the constructed road was referred to as owe that had claimed the earnest consideration of the Board of Directors, and the route from Sbep h TUiVwn to Meddington, on the Martinsburg and Potomao Road was indicated as the connection to be made at an -arly dav. The belief was express ed in the report that this link would be made in time to transport t» market the abundant crop to be harvested duriog the coming Summer in the lower valley of the Shenandoah. Tho stockholders re-elected Hon. Wm. Milner, Jr., President, and the following gentlemen the Board of Directors of the Company during the ensuing year: W. II. Travers, A. R. Bolder, Mann Spitler, U. B. Davenport, l.ogan Osburn, David BilimYer, U. L. Boyce, W. D. Smith, J. T. i.ovell. A. Boyd and II. B. llansburgrr. Ala meeting of the newly elected Board held Immediately after the adjournment of the stock holder* meeting, CoL 1. L. Boyco was re-elected Vice Pre*ident, Jos. T. Wright was re-elected Secretary, and A. K. Jamison, of Philadelphia, Treasurer. the following is the text of the bill agreed upon by the joiut Democratio caucus, an 1 presented to bath housi** of Congress on Monday : “Whereas the presence of troops at the polls is contrary to the spirit ot our institution* aud the traditions of our pc pie, aud tends to de stroy the freed ui f elections, Therefore, be it enacted, &c.. tbit it shall not be lawful to bring to or employ at any place where a gen eral or special election is t<eing held m a State any put of the army or uavy uf the I'uited States, units?. such force be necessary to repel the armed enemies of the United States, • r to enforce Secti- n 4, Article 1 of the Constitution of the United Slates, and the laws made in pur-n »uce thereof, on appli cation of the legislature or Executive ol the Sia'e where such force is to be used, and so much of all law* as is inconsistent herewith is hereby repealed.’* From Dr. C\ Clark, Oswego, S. Y. I hare nisde sufficient experiment "f Col dtn's Liebig's Liquid Extract of Beef and Tonic Invigorator to cuabl*' me to say it is by far the b*-?it .»t all the preparations ol the kind ( food and tonic that I have ever used. To the suiTerer from chronic diseases, or th • convalescent, it is iov* la able, being b >:h nourishing and strengthening. A few days ago a man named Freeman —a second adventist,—during a freak of re ligious frenzy, killed ids five year old d»tigh tcr. lie claimed t > Lave received a revel ition —that the L rd had directed him to sacrifice his little daughter, and that she would rise *4*iu in three days. He stabbed her with a butcher knife, and her blood was p «ured out np*>n a table, which was an improvised alt*r. The strange part of the matter is that the mother of the child participated, saying that *' it is ail rigid and Abraham would raise her «p next Sunday.” 15. th 1 »ve been arrested.

A neighbor inf ruses that his wife never keen i ,|iii, t night until the duct* r prescribed Dr 15-. li»t v Syr p f r her little one. A Response to “ Looker On.” It would seem from the rejoinder (which we ■ priut ou first j age) of “ Linker Ou ” to our strictures ou his first article of sweeping con demnation ot the public school system, that he is trying, like the Sbepherdstowu Register, to back down from his first position, aud now would confine himself to the abuses of the present system aud the imperfections of the laws which govern it. So fir so good — we do Uot deny that imperfections aud abuses exist. Every earthly iustilution is more or less abused —more or less imperfect. Would “ Looker \ Ou 1 abolish the whole sy stem and let the masses live on tu iguorauce aud degradation because of these defects ? The institution of marriage, for instauce, is olteu abused, lie cause a man takes advantage of bis authority 1 over bis wife to beat her, shall we move the eutire abolition of the institution of tuatritno } ny ? The administration of the laws of this i mighty Lepublic of ours—this " best Govern ment the sun ever sboue upon ”—is capable of improvement—has been greatly abused, as * has been recently demonstrated beyond the shad «w if a dou t. iSLal! we, therefore, move that the whole Lepublic be abolished—be de molished ? There is not more* absurdity iu these pr positions than in the i lea of “ L >oker j Ou ” that, because the flee school system — in itself a g i d and beneficent institution—issub 1 ject to similar occasional abuses—it must be pitched into even to the extent of ** blooded I noses." There is no compulsion about attendance on free schools. 1’arents who are afraid of cm tammatiou to their etiildren need uot send i them; but with proper care on the teacher's part, and careful instruction at home, we bc j licve that even such instances as are cited by 1, « Ktl V'U lilll l»C K/l UU consequences. The manners and morals o' 1 children are iu uu*t cases dependent much more on the example that is set them at borne than on the chauce associate of a. half hour’s play-time at school in the presence of a score <>r two of scholars at.d often under tho super vision of the teacher. Besides, as is well known* such instances are rare. Public opinion is ar rayed against characters of the kind spoken of to such an extent that they seldom venture to ptese.*t themselves as pupils at free schools, and if they do the patrons of the schools have the privilege of expressing their opinions eery 1forcibly on the subject. If the “ pegs are set” for abuses to come ns he prophecies, (and in his first article he speaks | of the “ disgraceful scenes that ore enacted,” ,Stc., and of the “school fund being regarded as a legitimate provision fer poor relations and 1 broken-down relics of antiquated gentility ”) I —if •' the school officers will be elected iu the Fall wit! a view to having certain parties ap I pointed whether riyht or wrony," then it be cenies the p*trous of public schools—those who are most deeply interested and concerned —to rise in their mig t and forbid these abuses by a voice at the polls, and if that fails, by re fusing to patronize schools wrongly officered. The argument of “ Looker On ” that mur ders, robberies, house-burnings, ,Vc . an* cata 1 gued in fearful array and are attributed to tho great aversion to manly toil superinduced by the education of the masses—or at least not hindered thereby,—is a flimsy one in the ex 1 treme. If the churches iu the land, ami the (b»spel preached in them, and the pure life an*l cea- less elT>rts f good men all over Christ endom d < n"t “ hinder ” thc-=e things, can pub lic schools be exj*ected to put a stop to them ? We believe that they are a power for good — not, however, to the extent of hindering all evil, but let “ Looker On ” tell, if he can, huw much less would he this “ fearful array of crime ” if the masses were left in their native ignorance and all e.T >rts to educate and en lighten them ceisel History and biography tell us of mvny eminent men r;scn from hum ble life by the aid of free seh >o!s ami as they are yet comparatively of recent date, we may confidently look forward to having the list of such nam*'s greatly lengthened. Th ' pnrs>*i ilitics in which we indulged were simply thrown out in the dark, deemed ap propriate to the author of a very mischievous article. His, in return, are intended directly f *r us, who consider it our duty to uphold the cause in.u we y ociK’ve 10 ue j right, arnl to come out boldly in behalf of truth. Knowing as we now do who “ I- ickir | On" is, we feel it incumbent upon us, while not disposed to bo lenient upon his Opinions, to treat him personally with respect; but at the same tim i we do not consider the harsh terras u- 1 in 1 is second communication 1 y j any means consistent -v:th his private letters to Os on the subject. As he di l.i’t like the /error of "Ur article, hut rather condemned it as baxc injustice to himself, wo presume he will not object to our taking middle ground—a Ihtrn/ !’tie. f>r instance—in deference to bis greater experience in the things whereof he afiirms. 0 ir i Ivocacy f Free Sch < rls is not base-1 on a mere sentiment—though we would do violcnc to the memory of the Founder of this paper if we di! not have a word in their de fence, in sea> n and out of season. He was t .e j . nctr f free scliools in this county—the Cr-t county in Virginia that made such ample pr vi«: >n f r the education of the masses—and in hi- capacity of editor and legislator did m re than any one man for the introduction her,* of th • fre* s.'h ' d system. By experience he ku w the needs of the p«x>r in the matter of cdui iB n.

What puzzles them 1 Whence the vast amount of vain nod pointie-s writing on tbe subject of finance and currency ? Is it ignorance or insincerity? Who cannot see that the distress and impoverishment la-t eating out the substance and hearts of the people comes from the colossus Monopoly which best: ides the land? Nearly use less are our exuberant crops, favorableeachangcs, abundant (but hoarded) money, and profound peace. Monopoly nullities them all. liut a Mon opolv of what? Why, a Monopoly of the power to furnish a circulation. Only those are permitted to do this wim will do it on the basis ol govern ment credit. No mailer what the extent or ex cellence of lands, the number of houses, the greatness and value of factories, mills, ships, or any property whatever, even gold and silver; nothing but government credit, bonds, bond-, bonus, wi! I do. This is the trouble with the "times”; this is why they are so bad and daily growing Worse, notwithstanding the elicits of tbe newspapers, ever and anon spurting forth, to make the suffer ing people believe they are going to be bappyand rich very soon. The circulation founded on gov ernment credit has been amply tried ai d fouud to be decidedly H’anit’ag ! Tbe country is starving to death upon it. Even therich are growing only relatively richer; that is, they are only higher because the bulk of the people are sinking lower. A circulation founded ou bunds ouly is uo more adequate to the necessities of this great -wide spread people, than would be the flow from the Washington aqueduct to water all their wheat and corn tields. The people’s own wealth can alone furnish a suf ficient and suitable supply ot circulating medium. With this for a basis, anil a good system ol bank laws, regulations, and restrictions to keep things In order, and nothing more would be ncidtd lor general recovery. The first practical thing to do would be a re peal of sections 2112 and 21111 of the Revised Statutes. This repeal would be a more than loos seniug the fetters that bound Andromeda to tbe rock. Short would be the time before a returned 1 prosperity would indeed be “booming.” The American people suffer only because their energies are artificially cramped ; set them fieeand they will forthwith help themselves.
