Editor Educational Column : Educational matters are attracting a large share of public attention at the pres ent time, and the whole world is inter ested and benefited by the educational movement of the day. A free interchange of ideas on this im portant question, cannot injure the great cause of education, and possibly may re sult in incalculable benefit to the great work to be accomplished. The great "Hoosier" State to-day, stands preeminently the peer of any ol her sister States, as regards liberal provisions for the ecucation of her citizens. Her sys tem of Common schools is a model one. The scliool fund of the State, one of the largest of any State of the Union. The number of children entitled to the benefit of free education, will comoare favorable with any of the older States. The num ber nf children between 5 and 21, who never aie in scliool is shamefully large, aud the number who are but little if any way benefited by the wise school laws, is appallingly great, aud some declare on the increase, year by year. Illiteracy o1 "Hoosiers." (whether light or wrong,) is a notorious concession amonic citizsns of other States. Our prisons filled with con victs unable to read or write; the saloons and doggeries growing in numbers, and gaining in patronage and influence, while our Common Schools are constantly loosing, in popularity with our people. Wiiy is this, and is it to coninue, or what is the meaning? is it that our scliool law provides no way to compel a regular attendance of btudciits at public schools, aud no adequate remedy against the fre quent employment of inferior teachers, or an inadequate salary, paid well qualified instructors Perhaps both causes tend t. produce the result complained of, with the fact that our public school teacher has no authority to enforce obedience; in many cases is forced to submit to insult ;.nd abuse, from b th student aud parent with no recourse; but object, submission, or resigning his position as teacher. "Why is it that our Slate is losing so many of our students from our literary institutions, and other States are gaining what we lose? Why is it that institutions of learning are being organized in every State about us, and taking our .children from their home associations, and be far removed into entirely st tar ire coimminitiev and , . - . educating them :it. tar greater expense, wliL-tl tliev could be edue-ited jit litiinf nil,-n "XW t,K,,u 1,0 euut.ueu at. nome, for its system of public schools, has no Academies, High Schools, Seminaries, . ..-T'-.; :.: VtiliCfJUO, Ul U III t UMI IUM 1L11U1 US OOr- (U'rs or that lir l"-'Ple distrust home' in- sat tions, and have confidence only in ed- ucatiimal advantages offered by distant States ? Our State has many Collegiate Insti tutes that vj inny feel proud of, and that would do honor to the cause of education to any State, or country. Yv'e have many colleges, whose diplomas confer as blight honors upon the possessor as any in the land ; because it was honestly earned by a complete mastery of the sciences and classics pretended to be taught in the in stitution, t at is the-equal of any of our country. We have professors in many of the colleges of our State, who are men of influence, educators who have national reputations for ability, morality and chris- tianity, whose names alone are worth hun dreds of students to any college that may be so fortunate as to secure their in fluence. Why is it that our colleges are not more generally prosperous, and filled with their hundreds up-on hundreds of students from our own State, if not from every State in the Union, as colleges in other States can boast of? Is it that our colleges are more under the control of churches, and repel students from their doors hecause of sectarianism and intoler ance, or for the fear that the institution may possibly endeavor to "proselite" among sUidents, placed under the care of sectarian Professors? Law colleges, m jdical colleges, or colleges of art are not utdMhe control of the church. Is it well then for our literary colleges to in variably be "conducted by a sectarian body? Why not the Free Masons, the Odd Fellows, the Red Men, or the Sons of Malta and Good Templars, organize colleges or in fact any trade or profess ion, and conduct them in the same man ner that is usually noticed in the manage ment of colleges, under denominational control. The secret h not here ; it appears to be elsewhere, as every one may discover in looking about with a critical eye. It has been said in these columns, that we have no lonirer barbar shops of the good old times ; but "tonsorial palaces," no stores ; but are "mercantile emporiums," no preachers, but "clenrymin," no school masters, but. all '"professors," and so on ad-naiueumlothe end of the chapter. So it is with many of our Common Schools of 'aakl lang Syne,,K they have been mys teriously transmogrified into colleges v nd universities ; but only in name, and with nothing connected with them that would induce any one at all posted in colleges, to, for one moment suppose that by any possible flight ot imagination, they could be construed into any thing but a Com mon School, and a very inferior Common School at that, in many Instances. We may look about on every hand, and see pretentious but insignificant schools, de nominated colleges, with nothing at all to make them what they pretend to the world to be : no grounds, no building, no students beyond a score or le9s, no Professors, except one or two poor, hal f educated school masters of ofhjr days.) no apparatus for demonstration of Knien tiflc subjects, pretended to be taught; no library or museum, no endowment fund and finally no charter, and no power to grant diplomas, or anything to give the pretended colleges any existence whalev er, beside the name, which is a fraud upon the public. Thus, often are really uierito rious colleges looked up"n with suspicion by the people in search of an institution for their children to enter, and graduate from, and our many meritorious home colleges are o-erlooked, and students sent from home and frienls.f ir abr.n.l to other literary institutions,' often less worthy of support, simply because the public mind has become distrustful of, and disgusted with horns "colleges"' that were not what they were represented, but notorious frauds. What can protect the citizens of our State against imposition, such as we have suffered from for years, and give our edu cational institutions all that recognition from the educated world they deserve? What give them thai reputation abroad, that they can olfer such superior induce ments.,, to students from distant States, that, tliail attract thousands of students from every part of our country to our col leges, that ate really colleges in every sense of the word, and not merely Com mon Schools, falseiy called colleges.
