Kernan vigorously opposed its passago

provides for improvements that tho states

When llnvcs finished his ndministra

Garfield would spare tho country tne iiii
miUation'of a renewal of tho nomination.
5ut no! The name has been sent in, and
as thoSciiato with Mahono is republican,
it remains to be seen if Matthews can bo
confirmed. Judging by tho expressions
of tho nowsnaners, the lmrchaso of Ma
hono and tho confirmation of Matthews
would give this administration a send off
which would send it even below that of

they havo often been equaled in previous

did no business at all except to pass three

applauded ono speaker and hissed anoth

WASHINGTON LETT fill.
Washington, D. C March 22, 1SS1-
Tho President shows signs of yield
ing to tho radical pressuro for an
extra session. I speak of it as a radical
pressure, for it is that and nothing else.
Thu real object of thoso who desire an
oxtra session is to send committees of
extremists into tho Southern States for
tlio purposo of upsetting tlio Congress
ional elections in that section. In short,
they desiro to re3toro the condition of
tilings tliero during tho Grant adminis
trations. Anarchy in tho South means
Radical Supremacy in tho North. Iff is
said that Mnhone, who seems determined
to earn his price is importunate in his
demands for Southern investigations.
How completely this proposed reopening
of the "Southern Question" is opposed
to tho letter nnd spirit of Garfield 8 in
nugural,will bo scon when wo remember
that ho asks us all to forget sectional ques
tions of fifteen years ago. If ho shall
yield, as ho now seems likely to do, and
call tho oxtra session it will bo almost a
clear n caso of bulldozing as was that of
Tho Senate did yesterday what was
hoped of ic confirmed by; a unanimous

was not among them, and a unanimous

Tho Republican Senators hesitate to
attempt to elect new Senate ollieers. This
is at least in part duo to tho fact that
Homo respectable Senators object to Geo.
C. Gorham as Secretary of tho Senate,
and it is known that no other Republican
can get Maliono's voto nnd bo elected.
Mahono and Gorham nro as inseparable
as tho Siameso Twins. It was under tho
tainted auspices of Gorham that Mahono
first como in personal contact with Re
publicans witii President Garfield and
others. If Gorham wero satisfactory to
tho bettor class of Republicans tho Sen
ate ollieers would havo been elected
when tho Committees were. Hut, then,
if Gorham was tho kind of man ho ought
to bo tho trade with Mahono would nev

Senators would bo m control ot tlio ben
Secretary Ulaiue has been compelled
to limit tho number of olllco-seekers ho

him. He has had ns innny callers as tho
President, and in his caso they did not,
as with tho later, fold up their tents at
the close of uttstiicss hours and steal
away. On tho contrary they mado night
hideous for tho Secretary. Thcro is a

and the question arose whether Fayetto

Green county having been attached to it

Dumbauld and Roberts,not being learned

which, like the latter should depend up
on privnto support.
The J'utriot is grossly in error, l ho
'Colleges" we have in this State (aside
from tho strictly medical and theological
institutions) are mere academies or high
schools high only in pretentions and
their graduates arc of no value as teach
ers. 1 hey nro not instructed in nnd do
not understand the business of teaching.
In a long experience we have constantly
observed them as failures iu that respect,
partially or wholly. On. tho contrary,
the Normal School graduates rarely fail
as teachers. Their instruction in that
direction has so far at least been thor
ough and most successful. This is tho
leading purpose ot tho Normal oehools
and the other instruction their pupils
receive is only incidental, but equally
thorough. This gieat commonwealth of
Pennsylvania expends from eight to ten
millions of dollars annually upon tho
Common Schools alone, ono and a half
million of which is paid directly from
tho State Treasury. It would bo the
height of folly to spend this enormous
sum upon tho Common hchools and yet
not provide them with tlio most eoinpe
tent teachers obtainable, and they must
bo produced in abundance. There is
yet not a sufficiency, much less an over-
How. When this latter phase occurs,
County and City Superintendents may be
dispensed with, and a great saving thus
effected. The efficiency of tlio Normal
School graduates as teachers will also
greatly reduce expenditures, wliile.impart-
mg superior instruction
The State appropriates largo sums of
money annually to relonnatory and
charitable institutions, to Legislatures
and to office holders, and it would bo at
once tho extreme of folly and of mean
nes? to refuse tho comparative pittance
it gives tho Normal Schools that the
most efficient of teachers may bo sup
plied to its Common Schools. If tho
Legislature, or the J'atrht, should be
possessed ot an economical lit they can
easily eavo tho amount appropriated to
tho Normal Schools in tho reduction of
tho number of ollico holders and uiirea
souablo sahuies, ten times over the lat
ter to point out and tho former to enact

Tho past legislative week was inaugu
rated by tlio usually noisy, uninteresting
nnd equally unprodiictlvo'sessioii of Mon
day night, but tho week taken us n whole
hns been n rentarkablo one. Tho Senate
ransactcd its usual amount of woik. but
tho House 1 bellevo did not pass a single
bill finally. Two days wero consumed
iu n most ridiculous manner. It seems
that a correspondent of thu Pittsburgh
Commercial Gascltc. a very reputable
Inily, had Incurred lho displeasure of
Speaker Hcwit, by publishing strictures
on his nction in referring the" Pittsburgh
riot bill to tho goncrnl appropriation com
mittee, instead of tho ways and means
committee, wliero ho had referred the
order raid bill. Tliero was no ground
for blaming tho Speaker in this action.
for tho liot bill was by its own terms so
manifestly nn appropriation bill that it
could not with propriety havo been ro
ferred elsewhere. The Speaker was very
angry nnd justly so when ho saw tho
criticism iu tho newspaper and his friends
immediately instituted proceedings to
havo tho rcjxirter expelled from tiio lloor
1 tno House. Uiavc doubts of tho
policy of such a movement as this wero
entertained by many of Speaker 1 lowitt's
friends, but nevertheless a resolution em-
odymg tho expulsion of tho reporter was
introduced into tho IIouso, nnd naturally
majority ot tho members were desirous
f seeing tlio Speaker vindicated and fa-
orcd tho icsolutioii. A bitter contro
crsy, however ensued, many of the
members from Allegheny county espous
ing tlio causo of tlio reporter. The ses
sions of two davs wero consumed with
tho matter and tho reporter was finally
expelled on Thursday by n voto of 91
eas to 82 navs. l he Allegheny lncin-
icrs wero very angry over tins little af
fair and ns the sequel shows will tako
every opportunity offered to vent their
pite. The lirst opportunity was on ln-
lay when the repeal of tho Philadelphia
Recorder's act came up for consideration.
The friends of this measure sought to tlx
a day certain lorits consideration and so
moved. To vent their feeling ngainst
tho Philadelphians who voted for the
expulsion of tlio reporter of tlio Com
mercial the entire Allegheny delegation
voted for tho repeal bill, and from pres-
nt appearances it the iro ot the Alle
gheny delegation is not appeased au im-
lortant ringothco in I'iiiladelphin lslike
y to bo the sulTeicr. From present ap
pearances I say this bill will at least pass
the House, but it will likely be retarded
somewhat in tho Senate, but whether
ufiicicntly so to prevent its passago this
session i cumins to be seen, btrenuous
fforts will bo mado to defeat it, and to
that end, it is rumored tho forcing of nn
early adjournment of the Legislature Will
be attempted by the Governor's agreeing
to nil extra session next year, and that he
will do that is bv no means certain.
Among tho important legislation
touched during the last week, I note the
following: The bill providing for tho
appointment of a commission to revise
the revenue laws of tho State to consist
of a number of Senators and Members
and State officers. This has been re
nortcd favoiablv in tlio Rnnntn. Tn likn

Tho lato chango in tho head of tho
