Many of our readers may remember, (and
weeirtatnly do with pleasure) our schools
til twenty ycit uro The country district"
In many cats were tnilts in area,. md teach
er and scholars trudged dally through snow
and storm with .1 basket or "bllckey" con
taining the cold buckwheat cakes and mo
lasscs.or the ponhausund "spec" or sausage
and other c.ild victuals, Tne school house
was often ft log hut. (put where It was out
of tho way),small, cold,andJwlthout vetitlln
line, with a continuous dek running around
three sides o' th room, and the level side of
a slab, with youn saplings in augur holes for
legs formed sets alike for the six footer of
21, and the child of six The ptlncipil ac
complishment of the teacher was muscle,
and tho accessory ones n lrnrwledi;e of "the
three ll's" "Hen 'in', ftilin' and ltithmetic,"
Urammar was unknown, Oiuijripliy sung,
and riobb's spe'lin bmk, 1) iball's Arithmu
tie, and I'mrrson's reader, were tho school
books that taxed the brain of both teacher
and pupil.
No county superintendent bothered the
teacher, nor did director or parents ever as
tonish tho scholars. Tho teacher was con
tnt to cut wood and build his own fires at
$12 00 a month, and "board round," and the
pupil was happy at tho chance to bring wat
er aud "pass It .round." Nevertheless these
schools turned out many able men and many
u woman who creditably filled her
i-pjprc In life.
Grand improvements haro been made all
over tho couutry in educational subjects
sinco then, which we will not pause to men
tion, but in soma respects it seems to us the
matter is being overdone Tho object of
our Common School system was to ijlve ev
ery child in tha U tiniivuiwe.ilili a fair Hng
lish education, such as would lit them for
the ordioary busincs truncations. Those
who deiro more than this can go to our
academies and colleges. Tho State gives
our Common Schools about $1,150,000,
which of ciiiraj tho State gets by taxing th"
people aud the Districts in list p ly over $9,
000,000 annuilly.
Xow what i'i tvtghl t Not the branches
the law Uesigned,bec.iiise they nra practical
ly ignored as belngvufy ir. 1! it children of 8
and 10 years are obliged to rack their brains
in llotany, about Monognia, llepiandria,
Cuyophyleoui, and alter a while our chil
dren wtll not know the common name ior
dandelion. And then como the mysteries of
Physiology, and incipient men and women
aro asked questions which the leachen may
understand, but parents would uot like to
answer if they could. And, again, what is
the use of teaching a child that does not
know the multiplication table, the exact lo
cation of the medulla oblongata, or the ap
pendix termioriiui.
And then these infants are required to
know history. They might tell who killed
"Cock Hbiu,"and describe "Jack-the-Oi
ant-Killer," but why worry them about
Greece, or 'Alcibinde, ZTxes, or Cleopat
ria'a needle, or any of those things.
Again there comes tcientifie music. lit
believe that vocal music at proper times U a
relief to a pupil. llut why should a School
Distrist purchase expensive pianos or or
gans, (to oblige an tgent) and then let the
children bo with the distinction
between A sharp "nd B flat, when it would
bo mure to the purpose to tell them the name
of the county they live in? Our citizens
should'think over these questions,

Adjutnnt General Lalta has prepared a bill
for the leorganization of the militia of the
State which will lie intioduced in the Senate.
It fixes the pay of privates, corporals, musi

A 13111 has been introduced into tho Senate
to aboli-h tho ollice of jury commissioners,
and havo that duty perform -d by' tho county
commissioners. This was formerly tho law,
but the ofHee of jmy commissioners was crea
ted, and luinor't'y representation provided
for to obviato tho selection of partisan juries
as was tho custom under tho old law. Hut
this reason has no longer any force, as the
minority are now repre-cuted in the llosrd of
Commissioners Tho office is a Useless ex

Dn.xtt Sin : A general statute authorizing
the niganization of iij-o lino corporations
conforms to the policy of tho Constitution as
to raihnsds and telegraphs, declared in the
llith and 18th articles. Facilities for trans
portation of products of wells, mines, manu
factories anil farms must be provided by gov
ernment. To this end highways ol all sorts
are established, and the State's right of cmi
runt domain imparted to the municipality or
piivate corporation by which they arc con
strutted ; and for tho transportation of news
by lightning lines similar action his been t.i
A special mode of transporting or convey
ing petioleum and its products to market
seems a necessity, aud if tho coniinou inter
ests of tho producers, and consumers are to
be consulted. Cheapness of conveyance and
speed are secured, with, as I suppose, addi
tional safety. Now a highway of transporta
tion under tho surface of the soil occasions
less of inconvenienco to tho public and of in
jury to private property than one upon the
surface. In tho tho caso of telegraph lines,
every ono is gratified to learn that they can
be placed in the earth instead of bciug eleva
ted above its surface.
You may understand that I am for one, in
favor of tho euactment of a proper pipo bill,
which though of special interest in your own
section of the State, and will tend to promote
tho common prosperity of tho people of the
whole State, will carry more fully into ope
ration those principles of equality and free
commerce and communication which arc do
clared by our Constitution of 1874.
Very truly your fnend,
Communicated., Texas, Jan. 13, 1S78,
KuiTons Columbian : I am here at pres
ent spending Sunday. I came to Texas about
one mouth ago, looking at tho country with a
view to locate and make farming and stock
raising my future business and so far have
been very agreeably disappointed with Texas.
I have bought -1,134 acres of lands. To illus
trate what kind of laud and the general ap
pearanco of n great deal of tho state of Tex
as, tho lands are such as you see in Lancaster
and Lebanon Valley. They have plenty of
limestone, good springs and a soil that canuot
be excelled in the United States. Those that
I consider good aro gradually rolling The
northeastern and southwestern part of Texas
is not good farming land ; but choieo land
may bo bought from $1.50 to ?5 per acre.
This may seem low for as good laud as
havo described, but you must bear in mind
that Texas is a very largo State, as large as
Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New-
York aud has nioro acres of good lands in it
than thoso four States combined. They raise
rem 15 to 10 bushels of wheat, 30 to 05 of
corn, 50 to 118 bushels of oats to the acre
they can raiso all grains that can bo raised in
the north, and also any kind of crops that
they raise in tho south, and successfully,
t'astures are unlimited, ihero are many
armors who have from 300 to 7000 horsus
and cattle, and many men have as high as
10,000 sheep, tho feeding costing uothin,
winter or summer. Sheep and cattle aro at
air prices but horses arc low and a mail who
comes hero with say $500 to as much as he
can .brin? can make money easier and faster
than in any other Stato in tho Union, but
my advice is to any one who would come to
Texas dead broko ho will seo misery and want
such as ho never experienced in tho North or
l'.ast. Poor men arc not needed or wanted
l'imber is plenty for tho wants of tho State,
Lumber is cheap and lands arc advaucin,
rapidly; towns aro springing up in ono jear
from 1000 to 3,000 in population. From
200 to SOS grown persons nre arriving daily
at one junction of two railroads and no chil
dren included. The estimation of arrivals in
Toxas monthly aro 100,000 persons, commen
cms on tho 1st of September 1877. Tho bos
county that I havo seeu in Texas is William
son, but thero aro plenty just as good. My
auvico is to thoso who have a view of cmi'
grating west or soulhwet to fir M seo Tex
as. I started from homo with a view of loca
ting in Kansas, but any man who will firs
seo Toxas belbro locating will do as I did
Ono aero of laud in Texas is worth two

Legislative Correspondence.
llAitltlslURO, Jan. 21, 187R.
Legislation has progressed rapidly during
the last two weeks, and already HO bills
have been Introduced In the Houe anil a
largo number of these have been acted upon
by tho arlous cmitnittees to which they
wcro referrrd. The liorder Claim Hill,

tth the elephant that it has upon its hand
The judiciary committee have no further ue
ir him, but for some reasmi or olhcr don t
seem in a burry to report upon his case.
So he remains in the nominal custndv of the
Sergeant at-A rm, occupies his nM seat and
looks as big as the rest of the members.
Onu of the leiidii';,- topics of discussion
hero and tho one exciting the most interest
is the Oil Pipe liill. The oil business has
become the most important in the State, the
nnual receipts thcrelrom being over J.10,-
000,000 and exceeding in value the entire
anthracite coal production by $8,000,000,
For nianv years thero were numernus indb
idual refiners and shippers, thus affording
the producers of Petroleum a free open mar
ket. Hut a dire chance has been wrought
in this respect. The Standard Oil Company
originally n Cleveland Refining Co., have,by
means of rebates and draw-backs granted
them by Railroads, been enabled to crush
out all the individual shippers aud refiners
leaving the whole of this vast business vir
tually in their own hands, and now they can
give producers just what prices they please,
as there are no other buyers in the market.
Tho producers have from time to time ap
pealed to tho various railroads for equal
hipping rates with the Standard, but in
ain, and now as a last resort they come to
the legislature and ask for a free pipe bill so
they can get their product to the seaboard
ndependent of this monoply. The oil which
s demanded by and has become a necessity
to the whole world is only bringing at the
wells about $1.30 for a barrel of 42 gallons,
which the producers claim is a starvation
price. There are fifty thousand people who
ave to get their living directly from the
nusiiiess 0! producing on ana they are all at

one the produce's are being crushed out as
the refiners were before them, and it is only
question or a little time when the Standard
will gobble up the whole thing, body and
reeches. Surely the oil men are entitled to
some protection. It seems tho main oppo-
ition to the bill comes from the Railioads,
(prompted of courso by the Standard Oil
Co.,) on the ground that they have invested
large sums of money in cars and machinery
for carrying oil, and now they want to re
alize on their investment, which they could
not do if the oil is carried to the market by
pipes. Hut they have constantly refused to
give the producer a chance to compete for
the trade and now they are compelled to this
last resort, not to injure the railroads, but
because the railroads refuse them justice.
When will tho people of this Commonwealth
teach these grasping corporations that they
aro the creatures aud servants of the public
and not their masters V
Tho Aguew tltslet contested election
case which was decided last session in favor
of Agnew (rep.) does not seem to be entirely
settled yet. Fraud is alleged and auumber of
affidavits have been presented in the House
in support of the charge and a committee
of investigation is asked for. The iudica
tions are that tho House will vote for an in
vestigntion. Certain it is that somebody
deserves to be punished, the pepetrators of
the fraud, if fraud there has been, or the
falso accusets It there has been no fraud
As the season advances and the cares of
State weigh heavily upon our law-makers,
they feel tho want of somo relaxation when
tho burdens of the day are cast aside and
anilshuutsot evening come. A pauacoi
Is needu for the weary brain and nothing
seems tn fill the bill so well in the eyes of
the festive legislator as the fascinating game
of draw-poker. Hence it is that tho mid
night gas Is burned and the rattle of chips Is
beard In tho land and we hear of how the
gentleiuenn from- , raked in a big pile
on a pair uf trays, or how the gentleman
from , lost a big pot on two pair of
sixes. Legislation is often a game of bluff,
and should wo deny our statesmen the ad
vantages of such a noble schools. Away

Murder in Luzerne County.
Tho most brutal murder that has occurred
in the Luzerne coal region since the flourish
ing days of Mollie Maguircism was commit
ted early on the evening of the Kith, near
II unlock Creek, ten miles south of Wilkes
Barrc, on tho western side of the Susque-
bauna river. Mr. Philip Callender aud his
sun had been to Plymouth during tho day,
atteudlug a lawsuit with a man named Con
uells, The suit was decided In Mr. Callen
der's favor, and he started to drive home
with his son. Whcu about n half a mile from
Hunlock's Creek they were fired upon twice
by some unseen persons. Mr. Callendar re-
ceived a load of buckshot and a bullet In the
back of bis head aud fell from the carriage
and died a few hours later. His son rccelv-
ed a slight scalp wound, most af tho load
going through his hat, Ho looked back
and saw two men running from them. It
is the general opinion that the Councils, who
haveabad reputation, were the nernetra-
tors of the deed, and It Is feared if they are
caught they will be lynched, as the excite-
incut in the neighborhood Is great. One
member of the Councils family Is now serv
ing a term In the penitentiary for the mur
der of a police officer some years ago. Mr.
Callendar was a highly respected resident of
Madisonville, Ross township, was a promt-
nent member of the church and a traveler
aud geologist of s-ome repute.

Washinoton, D. O., Jan. 22, 1878.
Congress did absolutely nothing in tho way
of publie business last week. To-day It if
raid a voto will be reached In the Senate on
the silver resolutions of Senator Matthews,
While the vote may not bow exactly the I
strength of those who will vote for tho re-
monetization of Bilrer, thero is n general bo-
lief that it will do so, and accordingly much
Interest is felt in it. If the resolutions ro-
ceive a two-thirds vote your readers may be
suro that silver will be reinonctized, whether
or not Mr. Hayes shall eto tho bill to bo
passed. A decision one way or the other is a
public necessity. I
There aro timid hoiiIr who defend the di-1
honest public debt statement nf SccrcUry I or a Republican meeting. Is that atmos
Sherman on Iho ground that if a full and phere all Jowlsh f Analy It, and you will
correct statement were given the peop'e would
not understand it and wonld believe the coun
try in a worse finaneial condition than it re
ally is. Others bold that the debt not re
ported by the Secretary, and which he refus-
oi to pay when it becomes duo, will by and
by become I'oullawed" and not havo to bo
paid thereby saving the amount to the Gov
eminent. Their first ground of defense is
not one fit to bo used In connection with
Secretary, n icrvant of the people. Ho has
no right to deal dishonestly with his master.
The other shows equal dishonesty and if pos
sible, a tnoro contemptible trifling with tho
Secretary's duties. The Si-cretary has not
lade one full or fair report of the public
In the absence of any exciting discussion
in Congress people naturally enough turn to
uch affairs as the proposed appearance of
Mr. Hendricks in tho politics of his State,
and tho speech of ex-Secrelary Bristow nt
lioston a few days ago. Spite of Hlaiuo's
great popularity in New Kngland, Hristow
has many most earnest friends in that sec
tion, tlo has strength among the masses
too. There wero in all tho New Kngland
States largo numbers of people who knew tho
insincerity of Blaine, and who would havo
thought the chances about even. if ho had
been elected, that ho would gone farther than
Hayes to please the South or farther than
55ach. Chandler to strengthen and consolidato
the Republicans of the North. Distrusting
Blame, and seeing the hopelessness of a
fight if Conkling or Norton was made candi-
ditc, these men turned to Hristow, who was
not only of good reputation as a reformer but
was a now man. His appearance in Boston
is significant, and not unnaturally people con
nect it with political combinations to extend
into the future. It may also be noted that
the men who in New England represent tho to 'how htr letters to In r 1, provid-anti-Dlaino
feeling are in constant intercourse cJ ho desires to read tl Hut he is citb-

Onoofthe innumerable institutions over
which tho Secretary of the Interior has charge
is the Frecdmen's Hospital here. It is sup-
ported almost entirely by Government, and
its officers aro responsible to the Secretary,
In a recent investigation though tho investi
gators found nothing wrong, Secretary Schurz
finds nothing right. Tho persons who made
the investigation reported that the officer;
against whom charges were made, wero inno

to consider it serious in all it says.
The bill introduced by Senator Holben, of
Lchich county, to secure compensation for
losses caused by mobs and riots is indicative I
of a disposition to extern! rather than relax
the provisions of the act of 1849. Mr. Hoi-
ben's bill provides that persons whoso prop-
crty shall be injured or destroyed may bring
suit against the county tn which tho riots, oc-
cur, and that tho amounts awarded shall be
paid out of the county trcasury'on warrants
drawn by tho commissioners. Hut damages
diall not lie awarded if the persons or corpo-
rations injured do uot use proper precautions,
or if they fail to notify the proper authorities,
If the shsriff or other official shall neglect his
duiy during a riot or outbreak he shall be lia-1
bio to the party injured if tho latter elect to
bring the suit against t ho officer instead
of tho county. It shall also be lawful for the
county commissioners to prosecute the riot-

1 his bill contains some excellent provis
ions, it would make communities more vig
ilant in suppressing riot on its first appear
ance when held by the law responsible in dam
ages for all the injuries and losses that might
be inflicted, and it would make them more
cautious in the selection of their sheriffs and
other peace officers. These officials would bo
exceedingly .prompt m their treatment of a
mob if they knew that thoy would bo held
responsible for all tho injuries caused by their
timidity and neglect
There is one amendment that might be
added to this bill of Senator Holben, and that
is to compel tho county requiring the prcs
enco of troops to mcll riots and protect prop
erty to pay the expenses for transporting
and maintaining tho troops while in that

Has a Husband a Klght to Open Ills Wife's
Domestic happiness Is never assured unless
there is an absence ol all suspicion on the
part of both 'ho husband and wife as to the
conduct and motives of each other. If they
do not so proceed as to leavo nothing to be
kept concealed, trouble Is likely to ensue In
the family ; aud where all should bo har
mony and peace, strife and bickerings enter
In, changing what ought to bo an abode of
happiness into a household blighted by sus
picion and toru by discontent. Still, there
is a due and proper courtesy which ought to
be observed by a husband toward a wlfe,and
a wife toward a husband, which reasonably
respects the rights of each and gives to each
that liberty of action so highly prized by
human beings.
Theso thoughts arise on reading the fol
lowing quest! ins submitted to The Sun by a
vexed husb.u.d :
Sir : Has a nusbahd a right to open and
read his wife's letter 1 Ought not a wife to
show her husband Ihe letters she receives?
I would sayyts to tluse questions, but I
would like to know if I am siugular in my
views un this mil j, ft, or if every husband
has a right to ixi ut his fo to show him
her letter'. HtisnANl).
Unquestionably a wife uu'.bt to bo ready
er a very rude or a -wry su-picious man if
he insists on opening Ihrin before they havo
reached her hands. The person to whom a
letter is addre-sed ought to have the privi-
lege of breaking its seal ; and if the person
happens tn be woman and u wife, that fact
linen not impaii hir rnrht receive her cor
respondence untoiichi o. The mere fact of
prying into the emitents of her letters be
fore she has herself read them, implies a
lack of confidence in her which must bo ex
tremcly offensive to the most loyal wife
In the first place, a decent husband has

wife's letters before she reveals them to him,
hO more than she tCt rpflll U'bnf Ma Sfirm.
pendents write to him. He is not a detec
tive employed to hound her stens and steal
cr thoughts, but her trusted friend, protcc-
tor, and companion, who should so inspire
her confidence that sho will be even readier
to tell him what her friends write to her
than he to get tho information.
We fear our correspondent is one of those
jaundiced fellows who so worry their wives
with suspicions that from mere sport they
creato mysteries to give their husbands food
,or jealousy. Doubtless the letters lie is so
auxious to open aro merely epistles of the
most ordinary ana commonplace sort, which
he would hardly have the patience to read
through, and which, if ho was not so suspi-
cious, she would turn over to him as a mat-
ter of course.
A wife, however, ought to have no cor-
respondents whose letters sho is not willin
to show her husband j and if sho has such
it is a baa sign, bhe naturally aud rightly
claims the privilege of opening her own let
tcrs, provided she has not empowered her
1 husband to do it for her; but she does this.
not because sho has any eecrets to keep, but
because sho feels that bIio ought to bo trust
el so far, and that though married she is
"ill an individual.and entitled to be address
e,l 88 such.
o advise our correspondent to give hi
wife her letters unopened, and to display no
foolish curiosity about their contents, even
though the handwriting on the envelope
,nay he a man's. Perhaps thoso letters
which have caused lyra his present unhap
piness were written to her by tradesmen
with whom she was negotiating for her holi
day gifts, and, therefore, as he was himself
to get the chief one, she preferred that he
should not see them. However, uuder or
dinary circumstances, a wife ought to have
no hesitation in showing her letters to her
husband. jV. I". Sun.
