We do uol know exactly what course the Udi. s of this town intend to purtuo in their recently urg.iuu.il movement in be half of temperance, but, from- the charac ter of the ladies engaged in- it, we feel *s aared that there will be no attempt made to Imitate the mode of warfare pursued by the "Western Cruaadvrs." Our hotel keepers need be iu no apprehension of visits from "iriyiug banda." From tho remarks of several of the participants iu •he movement we gather that their object i* to do ail they can te prevail upon thoso in>authority to so use their power, as to prevent, as far as possible, the increase of the hated traffic. All over 'he State there are grogshops, or pi. res for the salfe of spirituous liquors, other than liutrls, where cheap liquors, or liquid poisons, are dispensed in large or «mail quantities. Some of these places are licensed, and others are selliug in open violation of the law. It is to these pieces that the poorest and most depraved resort and spend their earnings, which should be used for the maiulninanee of their families and thoee dependent upnu them for support, for poisonous drinks bringing untold misery upou their houaholus. Against such places opposition cannot lie too strong. Again and again have effmts been made to break up these places, by presentation to tho Grand Jury and other moans, but through a mistaken tbmency those ctforts have failed, and the evil has increased rather than diminished. If the ladies by a proper use of their iu fluewca witli the other sex can so arouse publie opinion to a sense of the evil doDe by these places sa to cause tho whole number of them to ho closed and utterly broken up, they will confer a lasting bless ing upon the entire community. Con ducted in this manner the ladies' ment should receive the cordial endorse ment and hearty co-operation of every law abiding, order loviug citizen. Wc have ever protested, and shall con viante to protest against the unfemiuine and fanaiieal course pursued by the west ern crusaders, in iaiting saloons and low groggeries anil under the preteuce of prayer hurling unnthemas and bitter de Rweeiarmns ngimist rhe heads of licensed liquor dealers, but wc know the vast in fluence that woman can wield when she wakes use of the proper means, and if the women of Delaware unite in a deter move mined effort to use tbe influence which tbe,- have over men in. a proper and be soming manner for tli« abolition of this miserable traffic, no estimate can be made -( tbe amount of good which they accomplish. Intemperance in the uae of strong drink i* universally acknowledged, even by liqtinr dealers themselves, to be a great evil. On all aidee are teen men, too often of the brightest intellect and brgbeet tal ent, whose min is have become impaired, their may property »quamJered, prospects blighted and themselves nervous wrecks— pcrinaturc tJd men. All brought upon Iben» bj tba iimnoderate use of strong drink. How often do we aoe men possessed of lalsnl of tbe must exalted nature, who might bste become bright aid leading stars in their «ountrj's bretorj, sunk to utter degradation through an inordinate love of atrong drink !

Statk Finances. —George B. Dickson, Eaq., Clerk of the Legislstive Commit tee, will please accept our thanks for a copy of the "Journal of the Legislative Committee tDd Report of the Auditor of Accounts." It is .n seknowled fset by lesrned men that education in Delaware has been sadly negleeted. That children who have had the mental ability to become prominent cit izens and an honor te the State have nov erhad an opportunity to develop their mental powers, and consequently have been thrown into the world a detriment rather than an ornament to society. While there are a few enthusiastic snd learned men in some parts of tbs State, tbe greater part is almost totally wanting such enthusiastic workers in a cause for which God lias intended them. That Delawaie is far behind the rest of the Middle States is, indeed, too true.— Even New Jersey s few years ago showed a lack ot interest in education equal to that now exhibited iu our owu State, but now. with ber numerous and well-conduct, cd soboois, she is far in the advance of Delaware. Now, why do we net awaken to a sense of our duty and make a prodigious effort to bring our little State at least on s phr with New Jersey, and not be guided hy a few "old fogies," who, when spoken to soncerDing the education of their children, reply that they intend te give them an ed ucation equal to their own ; that they have prospered, and think tkeir children should iuherit similar success. Such "old fogies," who in our opinion deserve the censure rather than the praise of the community, are held up by the ig norant classes as examples to their chil dren and subjects ; and thus institutions of learning and refinement are jeered at rather than encouraged ; and even when such institutions are started, they obliged to struggle for life for tbe want of patronage. Now, if a child is an idiot, then it is useless to try to educate him ; but if he exhibits the slightest sign, of mental abil ity then do not spare expense or trouble to give him all mental aud moral culture pos sible. If you have not the means, and have friends ready to assist you, do not hesitate to avail yourself of their kindness, for the investment is proper and profita ble. Your child will be a pleasure rather than a drawback to you in your olJ age. It is true a man may cut a coat or shoe a horse without a knowledge of Greek Calculus. But if a man is well educated, whatever be his occupation bis education will surely be no drawback to progress. If be is thrown into learned society, tbeB a good education and refinement liai to his happiness We notice that great interest has.recently been manifested in the proposed county fairs. Now, while wc encoursge in every respect such exhibi tions, we certainly do not think they should receive more attention than insti tutions of learning and refinement. Y'ears ago it was the prevalent opinion that students were generally dissipated and intemperate. This opinion, entertained without foundation, still prevents parents from sending their sons to college or even away from home to school, which is surely a great mistake. Besides having instilled into their minds, while there, a knowledge of books, they are thrown iu constant con tact with all kinds of characters, and are better nbls to judge individual character hi after lifs. If it ie your intention to devote your life to a learned' profession, to teach ing, to journalism, then a thorough edu cation will insure your suceess. If you have abundant means, the best investment you caa make is in your edu cation, for whatever happens to you pecu niarily your education will stand by you. How are wo to bring about a radical change in our school system is naturally the first question which arises in the mind of tbe reader. It must he accomplished by degrees. Wo would suggest that we, in some particulars follew the example cf other States which have established such a thorough sehool system. Id the first place there should be elected or appointed a superintendent for each county,by whom all teachers in our public schools should bt examined thoroughly in those studies which should be taught in every public school io the county. The superintend ent should then give to each applicant who passes a satisfaetery examination a certifi cate tu that effect. By means ef this com petitive examination our acheoli would in a short lirno be stocked with competent in Julius. For the Transcript. Education in Delaware. arc »r are essr-n structors.

There seems to be no diminution yet of the Louisiana floods. Advices from the Teche county report the waters still ris ing, and it was thought on Monday that portion* of Morgan's Texas Railroad would be overflowed. At Brashear City, the railroad embankment is the only ground not submerged, and the storekeep ers have built bridges between it and their stores, os it is the only thoroughfare left. Small boats are in general use as a means of communication. While five men were walking on the track of the l'ennsylvunia Railroad, Cresson, l'a., Wednesday morning, thev met a freight train coining east. They stepped on the other track to got out. of the way, and were struck hy an express train going west, which killed four of them and seriously injured the fifth. Tho killed were Edward and Amos Fardee, Jacob Bowdcr and F. S. Chain. Tho in jured is William Chain. All lived at Cherry Tree, in Indiana ennnly. At the village of East Meadows, Long Island, recently, a lady who had just bee married, was leaving the house where the ceremony hod been performed, when the horses attached to the carriage in which she was seated, took fright, and threw the unfortunate bride. Her feet tangled in tho reins, and she was dragged a considerable distance. When foBud she was quite dead. The attorneys nf both the Arkansas Governors ore now iu Washington, and will submit written arguments to the At torney General in support of their respec tive sides. After consideration of these arguments, the Attorney General will pre pare an opinion for tho guidance of the Executive. The crops in Southern Georgia damaged Wednesday by a severe hail storm.
