j?riday, January 5th, 1877, HOLT COUNT r CEaSUg. On the third tago ol the Sentinel lo d:xj' wc present our readurs with an elaborate Lible showing the census of Ilolt county, jast completed by Jlr. Kershncr. county assessor. ' A very slight examination will show that, so far as its value for reference is concerned, it is worthless. It purports to be a census showing the population a"d products of the county; but the figures given are so manifestly inaccu rate that no reliance whatever can be placed on Ihcia. For instance, according to this table (I) the popnlatiou of Holt county is on ly little over thirteen thousand ; (2) there .arc only one hundred , colored people in county which is oue hun dred mid fifty less than was shown by ihe census of 1870; (3) the city of Ore gon has a population of 85G which Is is an increase of only thirty-two iq six jcare ; (4) there is not a single white female child under the age Qt ten years in the town ot Bigelow (this m.ay pos sibly be correct) ; (5) there were only a little over two millions bushels of corn raised in the county during 187C-rwhch is just about halftt)c amount actually raised, eta, eta. These are only a few of the errprs shown byji cursory glance, but they in dicate the character ot the whole. It does not necessarily follow that the officer makiug the report has bceu derelict in his duty. The cxperiepco of other assessors throughout the State durinjj the past three months has con clusively demonstrated the fnultiuess of the law which requires one man to do two men's work. Other counties show up quite as badly as ours, ana there is scarcely a doubt that the legislature now in session will make some provl eion for having the census retaken, in a more thorough and systematic man licr. Next time, too, let it bo taken by municipal townships, instead ot by con crcsslonal townships. Meanwhile we surest to the citizens of Oregon that they consider the pro p.icty of having the census of the city taken at their own expense. It would cost but a trifle, and it would bo a source of satisfaction to every resident 10 know just what onr population real ly Is. Besides, it might very material ly effect the city's jntcrests in the way of public Improvements, as, by law, cities witba'populatiouof one thousand iind upwards are allowed greater lati tude in the matter of taxation than cit ies with less than That number. PBQF. H1XTS ADDRESS. The Address delivered before the State Teachcis' Association at Jefferson City the full text of which was pub lished in the last issue of the Sentinel created, as we expected it would, quite a buzz about Professor Hill's cars. The trouble with it was that it con talned quite too many unpalatable statements for the consideration of the Solons who have recently been lo in"; to doctor oar free schools to death. Moreover, these statements were nn answerable, as each one of them wis backed np by figures taken from tne census report, Professor Hill proved conclusively, as our readers will re- nicraber. that those 'Slates had prosper ed Most in all enterprises, which had most fostered and encouraged the dis semination of free education among the people. In doing, so ho was naturally forced to' make comparisons between Iowa and Missouri, Ohio and Kentucky, Massachusetts and Iowa, etc., and these comparisons showed the lately slave- holding States in a very unfavorable. light. This aroused the ire of sundry teachers, male and leruale, who at tempted (o break the force of the argu ments by saying, that those Suites which produced Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Cluy were quite good cnongh for any body. Thlo was very silly, and reflected lit tle credit on those who thus allowed their prejudices to get the better of their reason. The true course for both teachers and legislators to pursue is to recognize Incontrovertible facts and go to work, earnestly and honestly, to brins about a better state ot affairs. Professor Hill was right In promul gating the idea that just in proportion as free schools arc promoted, so will be tho prosperity of the State. The schools are the foundation of every thing. To cripple them is to cripple every Interest In the State. THE STATE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. Tho teachcts of Missouri held their an nual session at Jefferson City last week, commencins on Tuesday and con tinuing until Thursday night. The proceedings were opened by the Rev. Dr. CoanofSt. Louis, after which Dr. Shannon delivered the address of welcome. Mr. IL C. Xorton, assistant princi pal of the Normal School at Warrens burg, presided. During the session of the Associa tion, essays were read on the follow ing subjects: "Is it Oppression that Hurts il:c Professional Teacher?" By Proi. J. S. McGhee of Pierce City. Kducation of Individuals." By Prof. IV. D. Dobson of Trenton. 'The Future of Education." By Prof. W. F. H&hlmnu of "jVarrcnsburj. Language Lesson." By Prof. R,l Rider of Cape Gfxard cau.

"The Truth in Relation to the Edu vaioi'a Work." By President 6. S. Iiwr of Columbia. Tin. Kiilifwt of Kthool Supervision yvaa discussed at considerable length. I JW- JIJH of Oicgon. Mo., thought. wc should have legislation to brin or der out ot chaos. Under the present system almost any one could obtain a certificate to teach. There were those having certificates "in the Xort Invest wlo could not work examples in com pound numbers, or knew not whether there were seven or nine parts of speech in the English language. Tho officii wanted to be elevated, to be more high-toned, and it shonld be by statute made more than It Is. Numerous resolutions on the snu- jectof education were passed, which our limited space prevents us from publishing. Officers were elected for the ensuing year, and Scdalia was selected as the place for the next meeting, which was appointed to be held on the last Tues day in Jutjc next. THE "LATEST RAILROAD SLAUGHTER. A terrible accident occurred on tho Lake Shore railroad at Ashtabnla, Ohio, op Thursday night of last week. The west warn bound passenger train, consisting of eleven cars, was precipi tated through the bridge a few rods cast of the Ashtabnla depot and tell to the water seventy-five feet beneath The cars at once took fire and the scene which ensued baffles description. Many persons were so caught in the wreck that it was impossible to extricate them and they were burned to death before the eyes of the hundreds who had flock' cd to the scene to render all the assls tance in their power. ppwards of a hundred persons per ished, besides abQHt sixty who were more or less bodily wounded. The bridge was an iron structure.the strength of which had been repeatedly tested, and what caused it to give way on this occasion is involved in mystery. LITERARY NOTICES. THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY.
