The oyster shuckers have succumbed
and gone to work at the rates offered.
The bivalves will be dished up in bouu- ,
tiful supplies at the usual price.
England lias a growing appropriation,
now amounting to one hundred
thousaud jiounds, w hich is expended in
teaching music or singing in the public
schools.
There were 12,487 people in attendance
at the several Churches in Cincinnati,
on Sunday last. On the previous
Sunday the count at the theaters
amounted to over 10,tKX>, aud it was not
a good day ior theaters either.
Two yot'no boys of Wheeling growth,
drinking to madness in a Wheeling
slum shop, the one at eighteen years of
age, stabbing to death a comrade of
nineteen years, furnish a sorry comment
011 Wheeling morals, and a solemn text
for a Wheeling Talmaue, if we have
one.
Tire question of the power of either
House of Congress over a member of
the other will probably lie thoroughly
debated, and it is to be hoped, detinitely
settled by the action of the Potter Committee
in presenting Stanley Mathews
to the House for contempt, for having
declined to appear before that Committee.
An attempt will be male to induce
Congress to make an appropriation for
lighting the Capitol with electric laiu]?.s.
It is claimed that this could l?e done at
small cost by using the engines employed
for ventilating the building, in
generating the electricity, while the
glass ceikngs would afford s|?ecial advantages
for the use of the light.
Alexander Stephens is of opinion
that the Democracy needs letter holers.
It is either that, or it nets Is to be
more I callable. Perhaps fs-ttor leaders
would give it the necessary tractile disposition.
There is a good deal in what
be says, too, that the greatest leader it
ever hail was Stephen A. I>ouoi.ass. A
man who would attract the masses as
IVu glas did would remove every element
of donbt out of the result of the
next Presidential campaign.
The proposition to retire small notes
in order to introduce more silver does
not meet with much favor. The Cincinnati
(jhizetk thinks if silver cannot
stand with notes it is very lame. To
try to force it, is t-? s|?ot it. If people
choose paper at par in preference to
specie it is hccatts ? they find it more
convenient. The s nail bills arc more
necessary than the large, for large sums
are mostly transferred by checks.
Bob Ixceksoi.i. is lecturing to the
people of Cincinnati on "Some Mistakes
of Moses." The comments of
the press of that city would indicate
that Boh. was guilty of some mistakes
himself. But they excuse him with the
reflection that it is hardly to be exnected
that a man who pronounces
Homer and Dante humbug*, and who
sneers at Milton because lie lielieved in
Christianity and embodied Christian
ideas in his verse, should ho a more
oouipetent oritie of sac res I than secular
literature.
THE BIBLE IN THE PUBLIC
SCHOOLS.
An attempt was made a few days ago
? to induce the New Haven Hoard of
Kdncation to substitute a kind of liturgy
for bible readings in the public schools
as a compromise between the churches.
The action of the Board was seven to
one in favor of continuing the usual
mode of bible readings.
We are not. informed from w hat particular
denominations the proposition
came, nor the exact motives which
prompted it. The prevailing impression
is, that w henever opposition of this kind
is made it conns from the Catholic
Church, though in ttiis case one of the
Board, a Catholic, votes 1 for the Bible
rather than the substitute.
It is not true, however, although generally-so
understood, that the objection
to the common schools by the Roman
Catholics is based wholly upon the fact
that the Protestant Bible is read therein.
Such objection is disclaimed by the
highest authority. The Catholic Hbrfcf,
the mugnziift of the church, arul published
under the sanction of the Pope,
ought to be authority in the matter.
lTpon this subject it says:
''The exclusion oi the Bible would I
not help the mattei. Hum would onlv
make the schools purely secular, which
were worse than making them purely
Protestant; for, as it regards the state,
society, morality, all the interests of
this world. Protestantism we hold to l>e
far Iietter than no religion."
"If some Catholics in particular local- i
ities have supposed that the exclusion j
of the Protestant Bible from the puhlic j
schools would remove the objeetion to 1
them as sehools for Catholic children,
they have, iu our opinion fallen into a
very great mistake. The question lies
(lecher than reading or not reading the |
Bible in the schools, in one versiou or
another. 01 course, our church disapproves
the Protestant version of the
Bible, as a faulty translation of a iiiuti- j
lated text; hut its exclusion front the
puhlic schools would hy no means remove
our objections to them. We <>1>ject
to them not merely Itecansc they .
teach more or*Iess of the Protestant religion,
lmt also on the ground that we
cannot freely and fullv teach our religion
and train up our children in them to be
true and unwavering Catholics." i
This is the church view of the subject.
Their demand would not he satisfied i
with the exelusion of the Protestant I
Bible, but they hold it to be a duty to
teach their religion to their children as .
a part of their daily education; and to :
this end they want Catholic tdchers in 1
the schools who will instruct the schol- i
ars iu the faith of the church. Tlie '
regulur course of study may 1h* taught J
through the usual school hours, hut be- t ,
fore and after that, they want the pnv- i
ilege to drill their children in the eattA ( ^
chisms and devotions of |he church.
Hence, as we understand their poai- j
tion, their war is not made specially on S
the use of the Protectant Bible. The ?
Protestant Bible thejr hold, to be better j
than uone, and they will allow Protes- a
tantstouseit, butthey want the exclusive e
privilege in the schools to train their 1
children to be Catholics, and for this ?
purpose to have than taught by Catho- n
tie teachers out of Catholic books. '
-
TAXATION OF MOBTAOE8.
The same uattle is brewing in*'our
Stttfe that hM so often l?en fought in
?0mes over the matter of taxing mortgfcges
or deeds of trust
Cndero'nr laws the State looks to tlie
proj>erty itself tOT an income, whether
it l>e real or personal, and without reTerence
to incumbrances of any character
whatever. Its demand must be satisfied
first, ami the party in possession i
must i*av if he desires to maintain con- !
trol of the property. The question of
title must be fought out between those
having claims. The State only wants a
j*er centum on its market value, and to
this extent is the owner of all property
within its jurisdiction, and will ofler it !
for sale irrespective of any other title or
titles, to satisfy its annual assessment.
The question between the mortgagor, j
the mortgagee and the State is not one
of title. The State does not respect the ,
title of the one more than the other,
and if it collects the tax by sale of the :
land it takes the title of the one us much
as the other. The disadvantage is in
the possession only. Whether the title
be in the possessor or not, he must ac- j
count to the State, lie may waive all '
claim to the property, other than the \
right of possession, but the agent of the j
State will take his personal property to
satisfy a tax on the real, if the one is
found upon the other.
The whole controversy resolves itself
into one as to whether the State, instead
of looking to the property itself for a
revenue, should he compelled first to
hunt up the owner or owners of each |
piece of property, determine the legality
of their titles, and assess the tax
upon their respective titles or Interests,
in proportion to their several values.
This is the question so far as the State
is concerned. Now, as between the
mortgagor and mortagee, it is claimed by.
the former that when lie Dorrows a sum
of money, giving his land as security, lie
depreciates the value of his title in that
land to theamountof thesum I mr rowed, :
or, in fact, teuilKirarily. parts with the
title to that amount of value in the land. |
But he must continue to pay tax on the i
whole original title, as well as interest on
thesum borrowed, while the mortgagee
is invested with a part of the title, 011
which he is receiving an income and i
pays no tax.
In one case, at Irtist, such a system
works hardship to the mortgager, and j
that is when the mortgage is given to !
secure purchase money. Here the [
mortgagor is in possession hut has not
yet acquired absolute title to the propertv.
He has title only to the extent
of the actual payment made, and the
mortgagee has in etfeet never parted
with more, although purporting to have
eonveved the legal title. Yet the mortgagor
being in possession, is subject to
the double liability of paying taxes on
what he has not yot acquired, and iii- !
terest on the debt to that extent.
But when the mortgagor has once j
acquired absolute title to a pieee of
land, and chooses to encumber it with a
loan, the ease, in ourview, is essentially
different, lie has simply elected to in- j
vest the value of his land, or a part of it, \
in something that will yield him greater
profit, and which perhaps by certain j
manipulations, will entirely escajietax- !
ntion. It is at his own option whether
he shall pay a single tax to the State on
his land, or the additional interest to j
a capitalist who gives him the !
temporary use of Jus capital. It is a 1
great consideration for a man to lie able 1
occasionally to turn u permanent in- '
vestment tcin|?orarily into cash and
rire rerwt, and it is oneJ'or which most |
men are Milling to pay. And it i* only j
when he has acquired a clear title to j
the projHTty that lie can do this, which !
marks the difference lietween a pur- I
chase money mortgage and one made |
upon a loan.
There is a very apparent hardship in
the one ease, but in the other it cannot
tie said to lie oppressive unless the oe- I
casion for the mortgage is one of neees- |
sity and not of speculation. Then* have i
been and always will Is* u difficulty in i
tixinxr a system of taxation that will .
work exact justite to all parties in this I
connection.
The capitalist has the advantage and
w ill maintain it in despite of any statutory
regulation. If his mortgage is
taxed, he will increase the rate of interest.
And if the law limits tho interest
he shall charge, so that he cannot obtain
his demand, he will tiiul some other in- ;
vestment for his money, so that in any I
event the hardship will fall upon the j
man who must borrow. We do not setthat
the matter can lie any better arranged
by law than now, unless it be
upon the question of possession. There |
might I* changes made in this feature
of the law that would work relief in
many eases where it ought to U> given,
and which lit some future time w e w ill
endeavor to point out.

THE WHEM
Atn erica." Mr. Woodlorif rendered this
Selection in his usual good style.
The next performer, Mr. LftwheadL
delivered "Influence of Public Opinion'
in a masterly manner, and it was justly
said to be one of Mr. Lawhead's best
efforts.
Decision in favor of Mr. Woodford.
Second Class?Essay.?Mr. Chancellor

giving the peculiarities of his character
and writings. He quoted several criticisms
front Macauley and others.
Mr. Hall next road an easay on "How

given much thought to the subject, and
convinced his hearers that his ideas
ui?on the subject were not all theoretical.
Decision in favor of Mr. Hall.
Third class?Oration?The jterformers
in this class were Messrs. Yates and
Ogden. Mr. Yates was absent. Mr.
Ogden delivered an oration 011 "Collissciiiiis."

it would have been the crowning
performance of the evening.

Kellev and Waters; negative, Henry
and ('ox. The debate was good, considering
the-eircunistances. Decision in

that something extra will l>e
given in the musical line and also that
the performance w ill be short and spicy.
Charles Davies, Ksq., of Harper's
Ferry, will deliver a lecture on "Richard
Hrinilslev Sheridan, the Wit, the Orator
