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 aficwar.ls 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 ..arr.is-sed 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, , A .New Militia Uill.

It fixes the pay of privates, corporals, musi oiatn. etc.. at SI 00 per day for actual time served, and scrgean:s at $2 00 per day. The number of major generals will bo reduced to three, and biieadiers to flvo.

Jl'liY CIIMJllSSIUXl'.IiS. 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.

L, Corbett : 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 ken. 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.

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.

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.

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 tuo mercy oi tins nearness corporation.

''"eoy 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 with tho thought 1 11, 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. Suhsorlhn fnr Ihe Cni.iixiniiv. WASHINGTON LETTER. 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 debt. 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 u.band, provid-anti-Dlaino feeling are in constant intercourse cJ ho desires to read tl Hut he is citb- with Mr. Blaine.

Tho persons who made the investigation reported that the officer; against whom charges were made, wero inno cent. Secretary Schurz promptly removes them.

The Pott is so lively and so inte- resting, withal, that it is perhaps unfair to expect strict accuracy in all its statements, or to consider it serious in all it says. Seminole 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- crs aud thclofficcrs who fail to discharge their duty. 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 county, Instead of requiring a regiment of militia Oil tho Occasion Ol a disturbance Or outbreak tho citizens of thejeounty would make effectivo means to quell it themselves.

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?

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 110 curiosity to learn the contents of hi 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. Jailed by the orphans' Court.

This he frequently promised, but always neglected to do, until, tho pa tience of the new guardian wore out, whe a rule was appealed for and granted, calling upon mm to show cause why an attachment should not issue against him for tho recovery of the fund. Melvin failing to enter an an pearauce, tho rule was mado absolute, tho at tachment was put into tho hands of a deputy Sheriff, aud Melvin was brought to Wilkes- Rarrc, by order of tho Court, and lodged in jail, it being the bheritPs duty, under the law governing tho case, to seo that he ro mained in custody uutil the money wanted forthcoming, (See Tome's Appeal. 14 Wrigl page 285.) This, we believe, is tho first in ttanco in which tho Orphans' Court of Lu zerne has committed a person to prison, and tho circumstance is ono of uuusual general Interest on that account. Leaatr.

There is altogether too much disposition to litigate on tho part ol fire and life insur ance companies, No matter how great the caution practised in taking risks but, once taken, If a loss occurs, it should, as a rule with very limited exceptions, be paid. As It Is now, If a man insures his properly '. feels that If the property burns down ho as quite as good a prospect of an expensive, vexatious lawsuit on his hands as ho has of promptly recovering his insurance money itbnut any controversy about it. If ho In sures tils lite, his ncirs may experience moro annoyance in tho way of litigation than they III of profit out of the pulley. Fire risks should only be taken altera careful examination of the properly, and on sufficient knnwledge if the character of the owner, to leave no doubt about tho risk einir judicious at the rates agreed upon. Then In the event of a fire, the lo"s shoul.i be paid certainly, cheerfully, and promptly. nly In case nf evident arson or manliest fraud should payment bo refused. Insurance on lives we think should he paid, In the event of death, almost Invaria bly, The companies employ their own ex amining physicians, and if they make a mistake, it should be at the cost of the com pany. The policy of frequently resisting pay ment which is practised by some companies, not only entails upon them heavy expenses In the way nf council fees and costs, but It impairs public confidence in them, and they consequently inNs a great deal of business hlch would otherwise fall to them. Wo are not by any means certain that the great est opportunity for an insurance company would not lio in the adoption of a novel rule f business, namely, to pay every loss with out question. Such a company would save all the ex- pnse of defending suits. It could practiso so much caution in taking risks that the frauds upon it would bo few. It could ob tain higher rates for tho samo risks than ri al companlos, for the certainty of payment would go a great way with insurers ; and it would soon outstrip all companies managed in the customary way in the extent and profits of its business.

Tho mem bers of the returning board presented a peti tion to the superior criminal court, prayinj for the removal of the caso against them to the United States circuit court under section 11 of the United States revised statutes on the ground that the law authorizing the drawing of juries in and for the parish of Orleans in crimidal cases operates injustice to accused, inasmuch as it places in the hands of tho officers authorized by law to draw juries powers which enable them to draw such juries as they may see proper and in this instance out of the whnlo venire there is not n colored man, and for tho fur ther reason that the virtues of existence of great public prejudice in tho minds of the white population ol this city officers havo willingly or unwillingly drawn such a jnry as aro believed to be impressed by this prej udice.
