In the Supreme Court at Philadlphia, on
Monday a-week, in the case of Schoeppe vs.
Com'th in Error to the Oyer and Termin
er of Carlisle the court decided that, un
der the statutes, the Supreme Court caunot
review the evidence, nor can have anything
to do -with 'the guilt or innocence of the
prisoner, and therefore is compelled to af
firm the judguient of the court'. below.
.This left the- prisoner in the hands of the
Sheriff for execution. Upon hearing of the
4eeisiofl of the Court, the Penn'a Legisla
ture passed a law empowering the Supreme
Judges to examine into the facts pnd the ev
idence in criminal cases carried up on a writ
of error. The Governor vetoed this bill but
the Legislature passed it promptly by a two
thirds vote over the veto. This being the
law-now, it is presumed that Schoeppe's
case will be brought before the court once

Schools in that city by the board of Education-'
The Conrt decided agains the ru
ling of the Board : and has made the injunc
tion, restraining them from carrying it into

J to care fur the intuligence and morals of
I the people, aud that it is'nnlawful to strike
down any of the, means which the ; world
, recognize, or facts prove, essential to
good government It is difficult, says a'co
temporary, to meet this question in ' the
l ijrht spirit, on account of the intensity of
the feeliug stirred up by religona discussion.
But reason should prevail. We look upon
the deci.-ion of the Ohio courts as proper,
it docs not even hint at sectarian teaching.
This is left to enthusiasts,-' to those whose
reasons are not so free as their passions and
ptejudices.' By many it is supposed that
the question just decided is the percursor of
a Jiost which Catholicism threatens to drive
down upon Protestantism. It is not our
purpose to inquire whether this be true. If
it is, Protestantism should not lay claim to
this decision. If it, is not, Catholicism
shriiiti not repine at it. The State must
exist. . Religion is free to exist. - Let . this,
however, be said, the Bible should ' never
be driven from our schools of instruction
at the -command of any sect or any party,
In itself the Bible is not sectarian. It is
the focus of ll sects. AH cluster around
it ss Ihey would gather aronnd God in the
end. When interpreted by The lip lit of
sect, when preverted by perjudice, when
corrupted by ignorance, then complaints a
gainst its introduction into the common
schools miirht with some ' plausibility be
heard. But, looking upon it as a Divine
law given to assist our understanding of
the inner law which we are slow to discover,
early habits of perusal should become one
of the first elements of education Or, a
gain, looking upon it as a repositoty of
quaint history, as a cabinet of the purest
and best English, as a work unexcelled for
its poetry and pathos, it can never be over
valued as a text-book. Why, then-, should
it be expelled ? Reason cries out against
it. We suspect the obstinacy that insists
upon its removal. ' ' .

The "Border" Claims
The Bill, introduced into the State Leg
islature, providing for the "payment of dam
ages caused by Lee's invasion of Pennsylva
nia, is a somewhat suspicious affair. It au
thorizes, first, a loan by the Commonwealth
of $750,000, and provides also that the see-'
ond and fifth sections of the art creating the
loan for the redemption of over due bonds,
approved February 2d, 18C7, be made ap
plicable to this loan, in addition to the a
uount raised by the loan; the State Treas
urer is authorized to pay upon the claims
aforesaid out "of any moneys in the State
Treasury, five hundred thousand dollars on
the 15th of March, 1S70, and thrsc hundred
thousand in June and December each year
thereafter, until the whole amount of said
claims has been paid. It likewise names
certain persons in the counties of Adams,
Franklin, York, Perry, Fulton and Bedford,
by whom "the said claims i-haU. be examin
ed and approved." The appropriation of a
sum sufficient to pay all juxt claims of the
kind referred to.might possibly receive gen
eral approval; but the Bill before the Leg
islature has some features about it which
make it appear as if it were designed more
for the benefit of the lobbyists who have it
in charge than for those who had their
proerty destroyed or injured by the invad
ing Rebels. Be this, however, as it may, it
will do no harm to have it closely scrutin
ized by those who are running the law-inak-'
ing machine at Hanisburg, before they cast
their votes in its favor.
The Franking Privilege.
The bill lot .f,c repeal of the Franking
Privilege, in the slia? " which it passed
the House of Reprei?ntatir?8 at Washing
ton, provides that nothing be C."111111
ted free in the mails, and hence, if-it be""
comes a law, postage will have to be paid
on newspapers sent to subscribers residing
in the county where published, and the edi
tors of papers will also have to pay postage
on their interchanging publications. It is
doubtful whether a single individual, who
signed a petition for the repeal of the frank
ing pririrge, supposed that the bill would
be made so sweeping in its provisions ; and
the only exp!anati m that suggests itself for
the course pursued by the House, is, that
the members of Congress were in a pet about
the abolition of a privilege to which they
cling with unprecedented tenacity, and
therefore determined to make it as odious as
possible to their constituents for which
t Ley may possibly fiud themselves remem
cered in the future. The Senate, we are
glad to see, manifests a disposition to change
the Bill so that the free circulation of papers
to subscribers in the county where published
w ill be continued as at present.
The murder of Dr. Livingstone, the Af
rican explorer, which was reported a few
dsys ago, is not believed by the most com
petent authorities in England, Sir lloder
if i- i? iii i,
ic jiurciusou, nimseii an old African ex
plorer, publishes a letter iu which he denies
the probability of Dr. Livingstone having
been at the head of the Congo river, ninety
days journey from the mouth, where, accor
ding to Captain Cochrane's statement, he
was burned by the natives as a sorcerer.
From what is known of the eourse Dr. Liv
ingstone iutended to take it is impossible
that he could have biseu iu this locality by
the time indicated. . k 5
It is believed that the current investiga
tion, into the alleged sale of cadetships in
the Military and Naval Academies, will re
sult in clear proofs against nearly a doxen
members and ex-members. If the effect
should be to check an evil which has been
flagrant for years, the enquiry will be sus
tained by public opinion.
A Bill to) restore the Spring elections is
before the Legislature. The popular senti
ment is clearly in favor of the retention of
the present system. Otherwise; provision
must be made for spring registrations. Is
the repeal of the registry-law a part of the
Coalition'programme? The anoexed para
graph from the Bedford Inquirer very fair
ly expresses the opinions ot by far ths larg
est number of the journals of-the State.
The Inquirer says :
We hope there will be no interference
with the present law until it has had a fair
trial. .The people have not yet had time to
get accustomed to the change, but if it is
continued a year or two and t airly tested, we
do not. believe they will wish to return to
the old Spring elections. A vast amount
of time and money is saved by the present
arrangement and the elections fall at a much
more pleasant season. We can see no good
reason for a change at present and we hope
there will be none.

Somewhat Mixed.. Politics In New
Hampshire are getting slightly mixed and
muddled. There are four tickets in the
field the Labor-Reform ,Tem oerance, Dem
ocratic and Republican. The Democrats
are doing nothing for themselves directly,
but are quietly patting the Labor-Reformers
on the shoulder, while they keep their
own ticket in the field, as the best mode of
distracting and defeating the Republicans,
which is not likely to happen. But, should
the Labor-Reformers, with thu aid of such
allies as the Temperance men and Demo
crats, come out of the contest victorious, it
might be well for them to remember a cer
tain fable of the cat and monkey the point
of which turned upon who should roast the
chestnuts lest, perchance, they should find
a victory with such aid rather worse than a
defeat. - '
Nef.D8 Stampiso. Many persons sup
pose that after having received a letter ad
dressed to some friend or acquaintance, all
they have to do to make it reach the per
son (who has left the place in the mean
time) is to change the address merely and
drop it in the postoffice. The postoffice
Department has decided that all letters in
tended to be forwarded must, after having
passed from the custody of the postoffice,
be prepaid by stamps in the same manner
as though the letters had never been taken
in the mail. If they are not so prepaid they
are held for posatge and sent to the dead
letter office as unpaid matter.
Texas. It is gratifying, says the Wash
ington Clironicle, to see the vigor with
which Texas wheels into line iu the great
work of establishing impartial suffrage. No
other State has ratified the fifteenth amend
ment with equal unanimity the vote being
70 to 8 in the House and 24 to 2 in the Sen
ate. The work of reconstruction in Texas
goes harmoniously forward and will be com
pleted next Teusday (yesterday) by the e-
lection of United State Senators. May .we
uot hope that, should the Senate ever get
through with the case ot Mississippi, the
very clear record of Texas will secure her a
speedy admission ?
The House Committee on Ways and
Means now propose to reduce the revenue
form the tariff about $20,000,000, and that
from internal revenue about $30,000,000.
This action, it is said, meets with the ap
proval of the President, and will be received
by the people with universal satisfaction.
As the currency during the coming year will
be much more valuable than in the preceed-
ing, it is safe to say that the revenue col
lected would be fully equal to that of last
year, and, besides, the productive interests
of the country would be relieved to the ex
tent of at le-ist fifty millions of dollars.
Thk Question Solved. The warm
weather ot the present wiuter is accounted
for. The astronomers are responsible for
it. They have recently discovered that the
sun is actually four million miies nearer the
earth than was previously supposed, and
that, instead of ninty-five million, the ac
tual distance is only ninety one million miles.
But for the timely discovery of this impor
tant fact, we might have gone on in miser;
able ignorance and had cold winters for
ever. Let us give thanks to the astrono
