The business now being through with, President Andrews proceeded to deliver the closing address. He said that an ac cident had prevented him from preparing an address .upon any particular topic, and he would therefore call the attention of tho teachers of the State to a few thoughts which had suggested themselves during the sittings of the convention. Ho spoke of tho prevalent idea, that an educated man should not labor, and urged upon teachers the necessity of impressing upon the minds of their pupils, that labor is honorable, and conducive to health. He also called their attention to the ap parent want of thoroughness of instruction, particularly in the primary department of the public schools, and urged the attention of teachers to this matter. The lack of moral culture received particular attention from the President. Ho contended that we area christian people, and that our government is founded upon the only true guide the Bible. Our school system is an American one, springing from the hearts of tho early settlers of New England, and has ever since been a part and parcel of the government one of tho institutions of the land. From the first, tho Bible has been one of the text books in American schools, and tho speaker regretted that an effort was now being made to throw it out. He considered the Bible indispensible to tho good government of tho school room, and to tho future moral condition of the people. He warmly urged upon the teach- ers of the Stato tho retention of the Bible in tho puhlio schools.

It is "de voted to the development and affiliation of all American citizens of whatsoever nativ ity." JThe Mt. Vernon Banner, in speak ing of tho Stcubenville & Indiana Rail Road, says : By a note from Judjrc Jewett, the ac complished Vice President, we learn that this road will be completed to Newark the present month at present it extends to within a few miles of that place. This will afford to the citizens of Mt. Vernon, and the county of Knox, an almost direct connection with the counties East of us Cojhocton, Tuscarawas, Harrison, Jeffer son, &c. We predict that the S. & I. R. R. will do a largo and profitablo business.

Speaking of the possi bility of a collision between (he Mormons of Utah and the United States authorise?. growing out of the appointment of Colouel Steptoo to the Governorship of that Terri tory, the Louisville Journal says: "Terrible as a collision at this time be-1 . o , , ,, tween the General Government and the r , , , . . , Mormons nnrht, hn. wo onr imlinc fnf nN. w ' Ti A. lct it come, if it must. Let the legitimate authority of the United States be main tained in the treaty of Utah, even, if, in order to that end, tho whole Mormon pop ulation have to be driven out or annihila ted. All appearances indicate unerringly that, sooner or later, a conflict between the Mormons and tho lawful authorities of the nation must take place, and if so, surely the sooner the better, And it is especial ly desirable, and vastly important that, whenever tho conflict occurs, our Govern ment should be clearly and indisputably in tho right, as it certainly will be in assert ing and maintaining, by force, its right to appoint the Governor of Utah. Tho Mor- mons are a most pestilent people, and a . , , ?reatm!inv norMnna ins cttJi.it Hnn.l greatmany persons insist that the General Government shall put down polygamy among them. Wo have no idea that the Government has a right to attempt this, but it has a right beyond doubt to gov ern Utah as it governs other Territories : and, as a conflict at no distant day must, from tho very character of Mormonism, and the whole conduct of the devotees, oc cur from one cause or another, we are not unwilling that those horrible fanatics sho'd take ground for the maintainance of their profligato prophet as Governor, and bring on the issue now." fl&fThc Baltimore Clipper well remarks: "Tho Catholic clergy in the U. States profess to bo tolerant, simply because they have not the power to do otherwise. They live in a Protestant community, and are compelled to be cautious. But they can not restrain themselves within tho bounds of prudence. They attack our public schools, and insist upon banishing our Bi ble. They fear the spread of information, and would therefore destroy the sources of information. Give them power, and our country will soon be reduced to the degra ded condition of every Roman Catholic na tion, without a single exception. We would not trust any with power who would consider his duty to his country inferior to that which ho owed to a foreign prince or potentate. The history of the Popes of Rome is a history of fraud, violence, per jury, cunning aud usurpation. Did they claim spiritual jurisdiction only, it would bo comparatively harmless ; but they have grasped temporal authority wherever it was to bo had ; though the spread of intel ligence, even in Italy, will probably soon divest his Holiness of all power, save that of tho head Bishop of tho Roman Catholic VUUll'U.

Pre parations have likewise been mado to blow up the various works and fortifications as they are abandoned. It is this latter pre caution which will render the storming so bloody to the besiegers."

Mr. Walsh objected. A resolution was passed to terminate the debate on tho Pacitio Railroad bill on the 16th inst. Tho House then took up the bill to amend the act graduating and reducing the price of public lands. Mr. Dawson advocated his amendment incorporating into the bill tho main fea tures of his homestead bill, and fixing the , , . , , , I Pnce of wad at 14 i cents per acre to ac r . ' v tual settlers. Mr. Etheiidge gave notice of an amend ment limiting the benefits of tho bill to na tive citizens and thoso now naturalized. The bill was then laid aside.

Ho notices great increase of . . l'oh oeggary ana crimo are incident to it. He urges that wiso statesmanship should interfere within tho limits of tho constitution to direct, ameliorate and control these elements. He contends that tho dominant race must rec ulate tho incoming class, and recommends that all schools aided by the state shall use tho same language, that our govern ment shall disband all military companies founded on, and developing exclusively foreign sympathies, to retain tho Bible in public schools, and oppose every measure tending to tho union of the church and state. The message is particularly severe on imported demagogues, agrarians, red republicans and others. It is opposed to an easy mothod to naturalization, and holds that foreigners are entitled to enjoy all the blessings of tho country; but tho nation should continue to administer the laws ac cording to its own judgment. Ho recom mends an amendment of the constitution so that the alien eltetive franchise shall berostriotcd lo 21 years of naturalization. Chicago, Jan. 9. James Harlan, whiar. is elected to the U. S.
