VOLTAIC PLASTER VOLUME XIV For the Sentinel. Our System of Education. There is a fault In onr svtcm ot ed ucation. Thouch in many ways good and ennobling it contnins sonic cus toms which work Illy. Our system not unfreqnently takes from tho student more than it eives. It robs him ofthe knowledge he gets by observation.aud gives him in place mcrcoi n great many facts jumbled together In aheap This mi bstittition will not do; cduca tion has for its object the full and healthy developement of all the pow ers of mind and body, instead of mat ing mere calculating aud conjugating machines. The future race should bo practical, virtuous and indiistrions. rather than book-wise, Intemperate and idle. r have seen people in whom memo ry was so gieat that they could almost tnomorize long articles the first trial; great linguists, also mathematicians of prodigious and almost snper-hnman power, and yet they were of little ue to society and not much to themselves. This mass of names and dates cannot take the place ot originality, or serve ivcl' the purposes of the world. Ave should rather stndy persons and things in their relation to ns aud to the uni verse, than mere words and events, as wc do. The one system Is parrot-like, the other strongly calls for original thought. Anything which causes thought is the very gist of education, and in pro portion as the thought " produced is pure, and based on general moral prin ciples, jnst In that proportion is the edncntion broad, liberal and moral. Ttcre are very few pupils who ever take up a subject (outside of their reg ular course of study) and give It thor ough thought and investigation; yft no one has ever succeeded in science, art or literature without boing an original schemer, (theorist to n certain extent) and thinker. There i another peculiarity in our sysNm of education, or. rather in our ideas ot education. We think too much of look-learning and trust too little to ourselves, and thus looso health in time. Horace Mann says: 'Hope cheats the tamest sliutei'l; he thinks if he can xludy note he can eil wags ttudy. Here is the ock upon tohice thousands are dashed to piec es." Mr. Mann was himself dashed to pirccs upon this rock and therefore knew whereof .he spoke. For twenty years he hardly knew what health wa; he resorted to various means of restoring his health.; at the end of each hour he took esorriee In order that he might keep well; betiire prolonged la bor at study he invnriably took Iolent physical exrrc.isc. and each evening that great man might be esen with his coat off, rnnning ns though deamons were in pursuit. In this way he was enabled to live, and perhaps partially counteracted the evil effor's of over study In earlier 3'car8. How many students there aro annn- ally carried lo premature graves on account ot tho violation of sanitary laws! How many more are there who. as Plato says, "tee one long death." Even it a man snrvjvcs wild poor health to oppose every act in life, (though he be blessed with a good ed ncation.) ho is n greater evil to him self aud to the world than a benrly. illiterate dividual. The one normally developed will do more in every field of labor, and in time surpass the en fecbleu in the field of science and liter ature. John Foxe. who lived in the 16th century, h an example of a man unednrated, but possessed of a native visor unsurpassed. Ho succeeded quite well as an anthnr. Gcorsrc Foxe, the founder of the vect of Quakers, is another example Uneducated, in the common accept icn of the term, he 8tndicd thing", and was a powerful writer in bis time. I might give bun dreds of examples of men who wilh ordinary education have made lilea success, and I might give thousands of examples of the lives of educated ones who, as Sydney Smith says "are ten thousand times worse than nothing." Emerson, iu his quaint stylo, says a good pulse surpasses any art, train ing or concert ;" again he says: "Our education is pedantic and over-fine Dr. Mandriey says: "Our system of education augments insanity ." If these are facts are wo not wrong infur ideas of education? Many stu dents confine themselves within college walls until they debilitate their conti tutions by ever work and from want of tal rest and oxercisc, when they might have been useful to the world with a more limited though practical education. Ambition is tho great urometer of study, and when once kindled soon becomes a flame wlricb burns awav all that preserves mi lure and gives them power. Health is the great fountain in which all de sire to remait, as fishes in water, ft is the mine from which kings and pa triots have drawn their noble deeds and their liberty, the mine which contains all man's pleasure, and which wo must guard If we guard our lives, our power and our happiness.

Tbc Charso of Falsehood ns r-xplnfneil by Sirs. m nt. A Saratoga letter fjora the Thiladel phia Times, giving an account ot a conversation with Judgo Hilton, says: "Nothing Injured Grant so much in the minds of gentlemen as his alleged bchaviot to President Johnson in breaking bis word to Johnson about the war office, which he promised to de liver back, but let Stanton rcsnme in stead. It was that which disgusted Commodore Vandcrbilt. Mr. Grin nel said to me: "That man is not a gentleman." It is still the subject of tbo principal criticism on Grant's in dividual honor. Now," continued Judge Hilton, "in that matter Grant was not a bit guilty in any way, and Stanton exercised a coup d'etat on the office, but Grant, though incensed at Stanton, would never open his mouth to explitin. In one ot thoso spells of silent obduracy or obstinacy which seem to reach tho depths of his character Grant let mankind rail on and closed his lips. Not even John osn got the bcucfit of an explanation and abused Grant without answer un til he died. I went to Washington, and in the course of general conversation with Grant and bis wife, touched on the incident ot Stanton resuming the war office, and said if there wai an expla nation of it no time ought to be lo?t in having it published. It was one of those things impugning tho personal honor of General Grunt, which was doing him barm in lofty minds. 'His wife, who was oncol the tru est women and wives In the world, a woman all over she had more infln. ence with that mnn than all the states men In the country said to me: Yon aro right. Judge Hilton. It ought to be published. But Gen. Grant will not allow a word to be said about it. Now I want to tell you, be fore him, the circumt-tancc ot that taking back of the war office by Mr Stanton." "Giant sat perfectly immovable whilo Mrs. Grant told the story Grant hud only taken the war olllee lo keep peace in tho couutry and prom ised Johnson not to give, it to another without telling him. Grant was a trong friend of Stanton, and went to Stanton and told him he had thought it right and a duty to take tho war of fice. Said Stanton: "Gen. Grant. there is not a living man I would give it up to bnt yon,'" and he did give it up. Time passed on. and tbo Radical senate resolves to put Stanton back. One evening Gen. Gran, was about to go out of his house with some ladic to spend the evening, when a messen ger met him at tho hall-way. Grant had his hat and coat oa ; the ladles were behiud him and the carriage ready. The messenger said: "Here is something for Gen. Grant." Grant took the parcel. He was then receiv ing papers and all sorts of things by the multitude, and he incrrly saw that it bore the inscription: "Senate of the United States." He thought it a matter to be looked into next day, and went out with his Indies. Next day no arose and breakfasted, and along toward official hours took up the pa Dcrs at his dwelling. He found the thing he had laid down the night bo fore was 'a resolution ofthe senate non-concurring in Stanton's displace ment. This was equivalent to Stan ton being the lawful s cretary of war. Grant walked riarht up to the war of fice, where he found that Stanton, from an early hour of the morning. had strongly installed himself and was prepared for a fight. Ho bad iu fact taken advantage of Grant's Inloknowl- cdgof litb subject and took the office byastrategem near daylight. Grant had no alternative bnt to go away Mrs. Grant, finUbing this story, said : "Judge Hilton, thoro sits tnat man (Grat) who knows tho story lo be true,nd he will not let it bo told to acquioKim of any duplicity with Presi dent Jcmnsou !"

May 3t, l:y THE OLDEST PAPEF IN THE COUNTY OREGON, MISSOURI. TUB VANI1EKBII.TS. Onrsous Hevclntlons. In Will Case. tbo Great Condensed from the New York papers. In the great Vandcrbilt will case, now occupying the attention of one of the New York courts, Mrs. Lillian Stoddart, widow of Dr. Charles An derson Stoddart, testified that she first saw Commodore yandeibilt at a Spir itual meeting in Boston. This caused some discussion us to the admission ot tcttimony to the belief of the Commo dore in Spiritualism, bnt was finally admitted. The witness then said she next met Commodore Vandcrbilt on the oast t-ido of tho city, at a meeting at which Dr. Stoddart and some of his lricnds were prcrent. Dr. Stoddart was a clairvoyant ph3-s!cian, or medic al clairvoyant, and the doctor was in troduced to the Commodoro as snch. Witness saw tho Commodore at his office, nnd on Fourth street, near Mc Uongal street. Witness here said she knew Wm. H. Vandcrbilt nnd pointed him out in court. On one ocea&ion Dr. Stoddart and herself met the Com modore on Fourlh street, at the park, and spoke to him, and after the Com modore left, she noticed there was a man watching them. The man watch ing them was Win. II. Vnndcrbilt, and he came back and spoke to them when the Commodore was out of sight. The conversation was in September, 1874. in Washington square. William II. Vandcrbilt on coming up said : "That gentleman you were talking lo is my father, and you aro his medical clair voyant. I wish to have .n prlvato con versation with you." Wo agreed to meet him next day at 10 o'clock at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, Chambers street nud West Broad way, aud wc did so. Mr. Vandcrbilt seemed surprised at my being present, but Mr. Stoddart said, that's all right." Mr. Vandcr bilt said, "I want you to control the old man, as you have power over him, and he believes in you. I want you to influence him so ho will think more of me." ' "I don't know about that." aid Mr. Stoddart. "I will let you know about that to-morrow." Tho next day we" met him ntthe eamo p!are, and Mr. Vandcrbilt band ed Mr. Stoddart a lollot bills. Mr Stoddart counted them, and said: That's all right and satlsfactory.Now I am ready for business." William II then said: "I want yon to call oa the old mau at bis office, and say to hln yon have a message from his dead wife now in the spirit world. Tell him the message wa to make his will in favor of William II., and abo impress on tho old man that ail the rest of tho children hate him." Mr. Stoddart culled on the Commo dore next day and told him ns directed. It wns also agreed that William II . was to como iu at the moment and say: "I also havo a message," but the Stod darts were not to recognize him, Mr. Stoddart thin wont into a trance. While In the trance Mr. Stoddart said. "There is the spirit nf an elderly lady around me." It was the Commodore's dead wife. Mr. Stoddart said the spirit told tho Commodoro to make his will in favor of William H.. as he was tho only ono to bo depended upon to do the business, as all other chii dren bated the Commodore.and wished him dead. The Commodore appeared lobe yery much excited, nnd saloh "William shall have all." He then drank a glass of water. Mr. Stoddart then came out of the trance, and Wil liam H. entered at tho moment. Mr. Stoddart exclaimed : "Who is that ? That is th man I saw in tho trance." The Commodoro seemed greatly sur prised, and William II. said he had al 60 received a spirit message Some two days afterward the wit ness and her husband saw the Commo dore at his office. The Commodore said that he would do as directed by the spirit, and would make his will in favor ot William 1I aud mako him his mrccstor. Tho Commodoro re peated this several times. The last lime the witness and Mr. Stoddart saw the Commodoro was In January, 1875. She could not say how much was in the roll of bills given her husband by William II. There wcro fifties, tens and fives in it. She always believed thoro were about $1,000 in tho roll. The European news continues to grow more threatening, and the settle ment by tho Berlin treaty will proba bly be only a truce. Russia claim- to consider herself at war with Turkey until the final compact is concluded, which is regarded as an impossibility. In Asia the omecr of Afghanistan is preparing to resist tbc invasion of English troops in India and is trying lo raise a icligions war against Eng land nmong tho Mohammedans ot Central Asia. The Afghanistan war is doubtless destined to be one of great magnitude, and if England and Russia are involved tho struggle In Europe will be renewed, and the end cannot. be foretold.

FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 1 A Kcmnrkalilc Trial. From the Boston Advertise. The trial of Jesso Billings, Jr., at Ballston. N. Y.. for the minder of his wife, which has jnst come to n conclu sion attcr more than a month of hear ing evidence and arguments, is one of the most remarkable and interesting criminal trials rf recent times. On the evening of June 4, Mrs. Billings, while seated near a window in her own home, in the town of Northumberland, was shot through the head anifinstant ly killed, the bullet coming through the window-glass. In the room with her at the time was her daughter Jen nie, and in the house was a female ser vant. The fatal act was committed abont a quarter liejbro 9 o'clock. Mr. Billings had gone out alter supper to attend to some cattle in a field, and re turned home about half an hour after the shooting, having been told at a neighbor's that his wife was hurt. En tering his houso lie tnrew uimscii on tho floor beside his wife, aud appeared to be greatly affected. After some ex-pre-slons ot grief he became apparent ly unconscious, and iu a few moments wns takcu to his own room. He made no effort himself to discover the assas sin ; but when it was suggested that nn officer should bo employed he nssented and offered to furnish money for the expenses. The next day Billings wns arrested. charged with the murder ot his wife. Tho circumstances which fastened sus picion npon him. and which were sub sequently developed In the evidence on the trial, may oc oneny summcu up. For many years he and his wife had boon estranged, not occupying the same room or eating at the same ta ble; and lastly, his wife had been ex tremely jealous on account of his at tentions to a Mrs. Curtis, who occupi ed rooms over a bank which Billings owned, and took care ot it. Mrs. Billings had publicly proclaimed her opinion that her husband's relations with this woman were Improper, and on account of this the Curtis woman had instituted against her a suit for slaudcr. It appears that Billings and his wife have constantly quarreled for ycars.ind that she accused him of hav ing twice attempted to kill her once by means of clorolorm and once by saturating her room nnd the adjoining one wilh kcroscno and setting fire to tho house. On the day before the mur der Billings had vi-itcd his wife's mother and attempted to induce her to Intcrfero and prevent Hie trial for ecandal that was threatened ; but she had taken sides with her daughter; arcus- d Billln.o of adultery, and sent him offatmry. It appears, also, that on Sunday, two days before the mur der, Billings asked one ofthe men em ployed by him where his guns were, saying he could not find them. The man told him that one of the guns, a Ballard carbine, which was in an un used store mom, was useless, as the bore was of a peculiar calibre which he had never been able to find a car tridge to fit. After the murder this gun was lound in an old well In afield, and In the barrel was an exploded car tridge shell which the bullet taken from Mrs Billings' hoa J fitted. The night of the murder wns stormy, nnd tracks were found about the yard and In the vicinity of an office building near by from which it U thought the shot was fired, and nlso leading to the well where the gun was' found, which were fitted by the rubber boots worn by Billings that night. The defence was tan alibi. Billings' ory was that ho went out that nlgth oftcr supper to salt some cattle in n field ; that finding it so stormy he went back and got a horse and wagon; that he then went to the field, attended to the cattlo, after which he went to tho house of a neighbor. Justice Wash burn, where lie expected to get some legal papers; that while there talking with Mrs. Washburno, Justice Wash- buroe came in, and, calling hl wife aside, told her something; that bo in quired what it was, and was informed that his wife had been hurt. He im mediately rushed out to his team, fol lowed by Washburne's boy, who found him fallen under tho wagon, helped him in and drove him home. Fiom consideration of tho time when the shot was fired, of the time it would take to go to Wnshburne's over the routo Billings said ho took, and of the timd he said he remained at Wash burno'e, according to tho story ot Mrs, Washburno, whoso husband said he wound 'p his watch, as it was two minutes past uino, just m Billings left for home. It would havo been impossi ble for him t havo fired the fatal bul lot within five or ten minutes ot the time when it was said to havo been fired Tbu weakness of this defence wns the possible disagreement of time pieces at the two houses, and tho lia. billty to mistake as to the length of time Billings was ut Washbume's house. Some testimony was introduced to show that Billings treated hla wife kindly, and that her suspicions con cerning relations with the Curtis wo man were unreasonable; but iu regard to his relations with his wife .the evi dence was weak compared with that on the other side, and although no crimi nality was proved regarding his IntI macy with Mrs. Curtis, it was shown tbat he had been on Intimate terms w ith her. A remnrkable feature of the case was the appearance on the stand of 1878 the daughter of the accused to give ev idence against her father. She testi fied in great agitation, and on the first day, after being on the stand two hours and a half, she tainted, and for hours was in an hysterical condition; but the evidence she gave was clear, intelligent and very important. There was no doubt that she believed her fa ther gniliy. Shu testified to the wrctchcdjlifc her father and mother had lived together for eight or ten years, and believed, as her mother did. that he had twice before attempted to kill her. She also testified to efforts her lather had made to get her to jivc hin. aid in getting her mother placed in tho jnsano asylum. When hor father came into the house after the murder she accused him directly in the pres ence of others of the crime, having ex pected that he would sometime kill her mother nnd perhaps herself, nnd she had said that, in case of her moth er's death by his hand, she would ex pend every cent ot her fortune in pros ecuting him. Sillings is a man now fifty-two years old, born and brought up in that neighborhood, ns was bis wife. Ho has made his own fortune in business, and is reputed to be worth a quarter of a million ot dollars, while his wife had a separate fortune of" sJHO.OOO. During bis imprisonment nnd the long trial, which began on the 10th ofSep- mber, he has borno himself with much firmness, but nevertheless shows plainly the marks of anxiety. . His a2cd father. aphyslciaB. was with him In court daily, and, while believ ing him innocent of the charge brought against him, was overwhelmed with the shame ot it. The case, after arguments of coun sel extending over several days, was iven to the jnry at 4 :40 r. u. last Friday. They were discharged yester day afternoon unable to agree. They stood eleven for acquittal to one for conviction. To Tell the Age of Fowls. It a hen's spur is hard and the scales ofthe legs arc rough, she is old.whcth- cr you see her head or not; but her head will corroborate yonr observa tion. Ifthe underbill is so stiff that you cannot Demi it uown, anu mu comb thick and rongb, leave her. no matter how lat and plnmp. for some one less particular. A young hen has only the rndiments of spurs; tho scales on the legs aro smooth, glossy and tresh colored, whatever the color may bB. the claws tender and short, the nails sharp, the underbill soft, and the comb thin and smooth. An old turkey has rough scales on the legs, callosities on the soles ofthe feet, nnd long-strong claws ; a young one the reverse ot nil these marks.

'NUMBER 20 ! FREEMASONRY. The Crisis in tbe Order Cnnard by tbo Urnnd Oriant of France. From Use PhlUilelpnU Prou. The actual disruption in the gener al Masonic Brotherhood, which has been expected for some time, must soon tako place. The Grand Orient of France may be discredited with this disintegration. The facts of tbe case nro not without interest. With out reference to earlier Masonic in.ti- tutinns in France, we may state that in 1771 the Ancient Grand Lord of France declared extinct, was former ly replaced by a body called the Grand Orient of France, but continu ed to "work" separately until June, 1798, when it was solemnly incorpo rated with the Grand Orient, which has continued until tho present time, though it has been placed out of com munication with many Grand Lodges for some extraordinary durations, from established rule ono Dr. Mackcy, a well known Masonic au thor, says, being "the recent aboli tion of tlic office of Grand Master" the duties being performed by the President of the Council of the Or der. Several months ago the French Ma sons (i. e., tue Urand Urieni or France) solemnly resolved that they would no longer recognize tbe ex istence of a God in any Masonic rites. Considering that Masonry-is eminent ly a religions inslitution, wholly nn- scctariau (Christians and Jews being members with equal privileges) this repudiation of the Deity was so ex traordinary that tho Grand Lodgo of Ireland immediately severed all fra ternal relations with the Masons of F ranee In due course tho Grand Lodge of Scotland aud England, and some of the American lodges, took similar action. The Grand Orient of France aro about to ifsuc a general invitation to their brethren in England, Scotland, Ireland and the United States to take part in n "convent" (or secret con vcntlon) to be held in Paris, in order to rcvie the decision of the English speaking lodges, which havo literally read the French Masons r.ut of all fraternity, becanso of their repudia tion of I he Deily. Ifthe Anglo-Saxon Mason,'as tbey are called, adhere to their resolution, or even if they decline to accent tho invitation to join a secret conrcntion, the Grand Orient of France have resolved to de clare themselves indi pendent, with power nnd dctermitation to issue warrants under their ssparate seal. constituting branch lodg's in Eug land, tho United Stales, and other countries. A few membcrs.constitu ting the old section, will probably maintain Masonry as a religious ele ment in France, but the newer and more numerous revolters will contin ue to ex hide all referenco- to the Deity in their ceremonials. Such is tho latest aspect of an affair which has a tendency, of course, to annoy Masons in English speaking conn- Irlcs. But the separation which ha already taken place do facto must tend rather to strengthen rather than weaken the ancient craft. The Fate of a Flirt. From the Youngstovrn RrsfeUr. The Pittsburg exposition Is over for thels year, bnt there Is one thing con nected with it that will be read with interest here. Rather a good looking couple from the country boarded a train here the daj' beforo the exposi tion closed, and with a number of oth ers went to Pittsburg. Arriving the girl met an old acquaintance, with whom she soon became uncomfortably (for the other chap) frmedly. She and her Pittsburg friend stnck.together like wax all day, viewing the sights. apparently oblivions ot the fact that her escort was around. When the hour cama for starting home she went with tbe Pittsburg friend to the depot, and hung upon hi arm until just be fore tho train started, the escort, the while, looking very much displeased Tbcv boarded the train, she taking a seat just behind him. The conductor tapped her on the snonlder for "tick ets." She leaned timldlv forword and "Tickets. John." 'Tickets be d d 1" said John. "Get yonr licket from the fellow yon trol- iopeu nrounu wun an aay." This was followed by loud laughing from a number sitting near, some 01 whom had been watching the girl's movements during tbe day, nnd she had to go down into her porkct for the necessary wealth to pay her fair to this city.
