Mr. Norton and the Public Schools.
Editor Statmman: I am one of the many
who profess to appreciate the excellence of the
pnblio schools of oar olty. I am also one of
those who most willingly bear my share of the
burthen of their support. As a community,
onr olty bai regarded no expense a burthen,
whrch In any dcgreo conduces to the moral or
Intellectual advancement of our children and
youth. The hepinnacled edifioe on Broad street
and the nondescript on State are monuments oi
the generosity, if not of the taste of our citl
sens. It is not surprising, then, that our com
munity Is sensitive to whatever affects the util
ity of our schools or the reputation of those
connected with thorn.
No event which has oocurred In our educa
tional history for many years, fias oreated such
a sonsatlon as the reoent removal of Mr. Nor
ton. Our city was taken by surprise. No man
In Ohio bad a better reputation as a teacher
than he. No man had done more to win the
hearts of the children or the confidence of pa
rents. . A thoroughly educated man, be devoted
himself with the zeal almost of an enthusiast
to the profession of teaohlog. Early and late,
at a saoriflos not only of ease, but of health, he
was always at his post, and no duty that could
be rtatonably devolved upon Mm, did he shirk.
The writer of this has known Mr. Norton
tor years; and would think himself reoreantto
every obligation of gratitude, as a parent and
patron of his school, did he not bear his testi
mony, in common with hundreds of others, to
his confidence in bim as a man, a citizen, and a
teacher. It Is not strange that the friend) of
our schools were surprised and indignant when
they learned that, without any charges having
been preferred against him, so far s the publio
knew, and with no form of trial, and no oppor
tunity for defense, he was unceremoniously dis
charged in the midst of a term. Not even the
privilege of the meanest criminal was allowed
him of pleading "not guilty." First the ax,
and then a trial. Nay, not even was a trial
granted after execution, that people might know
if he wore entitled to Christian burial. I under
stand he earnestly petitioned the Board for an
opportunity to prove that tbey had been mis
informed, or were laboring under a mistake.
But no. The autocrailo ukase had gone forth,
and was not to be annulled. The nnanimons
and respeotful petition of the members of his
late school, and the not to be mistaken wishes
of parents, were disregarded. Private and pub.
lie calls for an explanation have been mideand
patiently waited for; but our people are yet In.
the dark.
I have yet to learn of one parent, teacher or
child, who did not regret his discbarge. In
deed, not a few expressed their Indignation in
terms not to be misunderstood. The High
School was thrown into a state of chaotlo dis
order amounting almost to rebellion. Some
members have since been expelled for an indls
creet perhaps, though honest expression of in
dignation. ' ,-
Now, for this state of things who is to blame?
Either Mr. Norton is not the man he is univer
sally believed to be, or an Inexcusable act oi
Injustice has been done. In the absence of an
explanation by the Board, we are left for the
formation of our opinion to onr knowledge of
the man, and to the generally reliable instinct
of the children. The little folks have a short
but very sure way of coming at what is just and
right.' We do not doubt the honesty of the
members of the Board. We betieve them to
be honorable men; but we do not know them to
be Infallible. - In the nature of things, facta In
reaching their minds may be more or less re
fracted or discolored by the media through
which they come. Like other men, tbey may
have their minds poisoned and be nnconscions
of It. We shrewdly suspect this to be the oase
in this Instance. If the suspicion be well found
ed, the object of it would find Instruction In
reading the story of a scheming gentleman of
olden time who achieved some prominence a
reooid of which is found In the book jf
Bsthef. ,.
It is no trifling thing to disgrace an honora
ble man In the eyes of community; to destroy
bis business prospects, and sever bis social ties.
It should not be done from caprice. Especially
it should not be done in the abrupt and uncere
monious manner that characterizes this ease.
I believe the members of the Board admit the
excellence ef Mr. Norton as a teaoher. Then
did not self intercft, not to say courtesy, de
mand that be have an opportunity to explain,
before be be unceremoniously "kicked out?"
Even after bis expulsion, should not the oppor
tunity whlch,he requested, to f row At ttatemtnt
to bt correct, have been granted him? This
method of treating teaehers has beoome by far
too common within .the. last few years. '. Too
many Instances have occurred where teachers
have closed their term and gone to their homes,
without the slightest intimation that their 'scr
vices were notacceptible, and tbey have re
ceived notice just at the commencement of an
other term that they were not wanted. Wheth
er the fault may lie with the Board or the 8u
perlntendent in euoh cases, I will not undertake
to say j but all will admit that it Is a custom
more "honored In the breach' than In , the ob
servance." -, ' ' '' - :"'"''
Before closing, I desire to exonerate a respect
able minority pf the Board from the blame oi

Williams's Colombo Dibiotom tot 1861.-

General Porter, to whose division the party
belonged. He sent forward tbe Ninth Massa
chusetts, Fourth Michigan (Griffin's) battery,
and two more companies of Colonel AveriU's
Cavalry. At dusk all the troops returned.
Before the reinforcements reached Capt. Bell,
he was again attacked by the enemy, who at
tempted to cut bim off. Shots were again ex
changed. The rebel commander was shot and
fell f.-om his horse, who galloped within our
lines and was captured. About a dozen of our
men dropped, and were necessarily left on tbe
