Ftiir Xcw Year's Iorn ! thou spuakest not, Yet Hum art oloquent to 1110 ; Tlio scenes e;in never he lbrot, Which h:tve been -witnessed oft by thee: Oil, no ! remembrance will not part "With what it once too dearly prized ; The bosom can not cease to smart, Whose leelings have been sacrificed. Years have gone past, since thou didst sec My heart's but too expectant ilame; Changes and grief have altered me, But thou art smiling still the same. A little longer I must brave Life's stormy cares and deep repining; Then thou wilt shine upon my grave, As sweetly as thou now art shining. Fair New Year's Morn ! since, young and bright, Thou lirst disclos'dst thv golden rav, Millions have gazetl upon thy light ; But they are gone ! and where are they ? Where are the myriads ot bright eyes, And glowing Hps, that gave and took Pledges ol love 'neath distant skies, 'Neath thy serene and placid look ? Oh, where are they, and who were the" For thou didst light their splendid halls Who reveled life's bright hours away In Balbee or in Tadmor's walls? Or they of Home the stern, the bold Who saw her glory and her wane, And deemed not time would e'er unfold Such glory and such power again ? Oh, where are they -whose couneil-fires Glowed nightly by yon sweeping tide, The eagle sons, the warrior sires, That proudly ranged the valley's side? The bow and arrow, where are the' ? The lonely cot the light canoe The mvstic rites the hunting frav The war-dance, and the wild halloo ? Alas ! their homes are swept away ! The tribes are gone and now no more The forest bands tire seen to stray The-Jo proirios mid thcau mountains o'er. They are not, and no more shall be ; But thou, fair Morn ! undimmed by time, Still risest on thine azure sea, And shed'st thy beams on every clime. Thou gleamest on the Arab's eye, Chcerest the Hindoo with thy ray. Lightest the Indian's western sky, And rude Siberian's lonely way ; By Volga and by Gambia's shore, By Plata's broad majestic stream, And where Niagara's waters roar, Thou pour'st thy mellow morning beam. Fair New Year's Morn ! thou art to me E'en as religion's holy light, Calm shining from eternity, Through nature's dark and dreary night ; And as thou oft art dimmed by clouds, While rising on heaven's vaulted scope, E'en so the gloom of doubt enshrouds The trembling light of faith and hope. The vision now changes! the future appears, All radiant in smiles, all unclouded by fears, Like an ocean of bliss, -with no storm on its breast, Keposing in grandeur, and beauty, and rest; While o'er its calm surface hope's fairest beams play. Like the fresh twilight-giow on the bosom of day ; And ambition sees mirrored her stars in its deep, And rich gems in its caverns for avarice sleep. Oh, ever thus bright may the future be found, As time rolls its seasons in joyfulness round; knowr May the hopes which tve cherish, the enjoyments w& Leave no shadow behind them, no sequel of woe ! But around us forever, to greet the New Year, Be innocence, friendship, and plentiful cheer; And music's soft strains, and fair poesy's tale, To rival Parnassus, and Tempe's sweet vale. To enhance every pleasure which earth ha3 in storo, Tho "Republican" has called every week at the door Bearing news from all nations, their raptures and pain9, With a chart of their business, their changes and gains. Its pages unsullied by falsehood or strife, Like the robe which encircles a virtuous lifo, Will show to its patrons the course they must steer. To make this and all others a happy New Yrear. The discussion between Revs. Long and Osborn, the former of the Advent, and the latter ot the Christian church, which had been going on at the Andrew school bonse for some time, closed on Tuesday night. A deep interest was manifested on both sides. Worth Co. Times. Weed Earls must make a specialty of. Harness, Saddles and Bridles, as" he . ells them very low.

Institute met at 7 o'clock p. m., President Matteson in t lie chair. Opened with song, "Greeting Glee." Prayer was then offered by Dr. Cruik- shank, and song, "Go and Seek the Little Wanderer.'1 President then introduced Dr. F. A. Simmons, of Rochester, who entertained the Insti tute for some time with a very inter esting lecture upon Physical, Moral and Mental culture. After a song, ''Wake the Song of joy and Gladness,'5 Dr. Crulkshank moved, and it was carried, that the Institute present a vote of thanks to Dr. Simmons for his able and entertaining lecture. Next the Institute was favored with a selection in reading bv J. Wilker- son. He gave us "Roll Call" in a vcrv neat and workmanlike manner. Then came discussion of contents of Query Box : "Should Legislative Enactments be passed compelling children between six and sixteen years of age to attend public schools ?" Dr. Cruikshank affirmed, excepting the public school, but thought that those between the ages mentioned should attend school, either public or private. W. W. Booher and oth ers, also took the same position. But the discussion was not all like a jug handle, for Mr. Wilkcrson, Mr. Her ren and Mr. Boyce objected, and the debate was somewhat mixed, and the question still remains unsettled, and we shall continue to go on as hereto fore. Report of critic, J. Powell, was then received, and report of commit tee on Programme for to-morrow morning, and a song, '"'Good-Night," when Institute adjourned until Wed nesday morning, Dec. 30th, 1874. Dec. 30. Institute met and opened in the usual manner President Matteson in the chair. E. J. Petti t appointed critic. Dr. Hough presented map drawing in a plain, practical manner, and his method is the best we have ever seen given. After some discus sion upon this subject, the Institute took a short recess, and then proceed ed to elect an Executive Committee for the ensuing year, viz : E. T. Per tit,Wm. Hunter, John Wilkerson arid Wilson Daily. The Rev. Mr. Smith offered the use of the Presbyterian church, but upon consideration, the Institute voted thanks for the offer, but did not consider it expedient to accept the offer. Then came the query box. 1st Why do our best teachers quit the business of teaching iu such disgust, as soon as something else offers that will give them a liv ing? 2d Should teachers require their pupils to walk on their toes in the school room ? (query) their own or the teacher's toes ? Critic reports, and committee on programme, and. Institute adjourns until 2 p. in. 2 P. M. Institute met, and it is pleasant to observe the increasing in terest manifested. President Matte son in the chair. Minutes of last sos sion read and approved. President appoints G. E. King as critic. Class drill in written arithmetic, conduct ed by Mr. E. J. Pcttit. After a short recess, the Institute was favored with a selection of in strumental music by Miss Cook, of Savannah. Mr. George E. King then presented his views with regard to spelling, showing how he conducts that important part of educating the youth of our land. Mr. N. II. Greg ory also favored us with some inter esting exercises in etymology. A motion was made and carried, that after this evening's session the Insti tute proceed to final adjournment, to meet again at call of Executive Com mittee. After reports of critic and committee ou programme, Institute adjourned until 7 o'clock p. m. 7 p. fli, Institute met, President Matteson in the chair, who appoint ed Mr. E. Ward as critic. Choir sang Toiling on," and oraver Avas offered by Rev. Dr. Cruikshank, and another song, "T-'will all be over soon," when President introduced Mr. F. Knicker bocker to the Institute. Mr. Knick erbacker was very much embarrass ed, or at least claimed to be, and re marked that he hardly knew whom to address whether "the Institute as a whole, or the schoolmasters, or tin; schoolwwrnis. His address was gootl and practical, and the Institute en joyed it very much. At the close of his remarks, the choir sang a song, "The Last Commission," when Mr. II. S. Gardner favored the Institute with some select readings, which were v eil rendered, and gave univer sal satisfaction, as was evident by the applause from all parts of the room. Henry is an able and excellent elocu tionist, and it is a pleasure not to be enjoyed every day, to hear him read. The query box was then taken up, and first came this question: What relation do parents sustain to the common schools? One teacher con cluded that the originator of thi3 query was, anil must of necessity, be a genius, to supposu that the parents of those sent to the public schools, sustains any relation to the schools. The point was well taken. 2. Is it pro per for teachers to hold out induce ments to pupils, that they may be come presidents, governors and other high ollicers ? On this question there was considerable discussion, and some very pertinent remarks. 3. Ought prizes to be offered to pupils as in ducements to study ? Both sides of this question had its supporters. Committee on resolutions being called on for report, reported as fol lows : 'Mr. President and members of the Institute: Your committee ou Resolutions would respectfully sub mit the following: Resolved, 1. That this Institute has been a decided success, notwithstand ing the absence of many teachers whose presence we had reasons to ex pect. 2. That those teachers who have absented themselves from this Insti tute, have deprived themselves of much professional profit, and intel lectual and social pleasure. 3. That we, as teachers, tender our unfeigned thanks to the citizens of Fillmore for their courtesy and gen erous hospitality bestowed upon us during the sessions of this Institute. 4. That we respectfully ask our present Executive Committee to be more prompt than has been customa ry, in their call for the next meeting of our Institute. 5. That we, as teachers, will use our influence to make the next meet ing of our Institute both pleasant and profitable to all in attendance. (Signed,) Robert Ckuikshank, j) E. J. Pettit, Com. Jabe Powell. 3 There was a motion made and car ried that these resolutions be adopt ed, as a whole.'Moved that the thanks of the Institute be rendered to those who have furnished such excellent music, vocal and instrumental, for the Institute. Carried. Report of critic. Mr. Knickerbackcr made the follow ing motion : That, on behalf of the citizens of Andrew county, a vote of thanks be tendered to the Teachers' Institute of Andrew county, for the pleasant and profitable entertainment now about to close, which was re sponded to quite unanimously. An other song, 'One Last Hymn at Parting," and the President declared the Institute adjourned, to meet at the call of the Executive Committee. E. T. Pettit, Auditor. Kansas Sufferers. Mr. Whitakcr, just returned from Southern Kansas, says the people of that vicinity are actually suffering for the want of clothing and provision. He says while lie was in Hutchinson there was some tears as to tne welfare 01 a family living on the west side of Cow creek", as they had not been seen in town for several days. There was a commit tee sent out to ascertain their where abouts ; and on the arrival of the com mittee at their residence, the family.con sisting of man, wife and child, were found lying cold in the arms of death. The said family were destitute of pro vision, and, from all appearances, tho family had actually starvwd to death. The citizens of that vicinity kindly laid them in the silent grave, and their suf fering was at an end. But there are thousands of others who are actually starving on the prairies of Kanstis destitute of anything to eat and no teams by which to get away, and un less aided by those who have plenty, they must reniaiu where they aie and starve. Is it possible that we will let our fellow men starve to death, in two days' travel of a land of plenty? I say, certainly not. Rally, then, one and all. and bring something to the Aid Com mittee, which meets at Savannah on tho 7th day of January. All turn out and help the suffering poor. Small favor kindly received, and Jarger ones in pro portion, JACK.
