But how. are th5 'enactmeats - they adto-
cate, if passed by tLa Legislature, :t be en
forced? Tbe editors explain this by quoting,
with approbation , ari extract from what they
are pleased to term a very able report re 1
before th8 last Convention; cf County :Sup r-
hrtendents- by-Jessa Newlin, Esq: r buperin- i
tendent of Schuylkill county. We should
like logive your readers this extracf in full,'
but find-it,would occupy too much space.
We will, however, ouote t. sintence "or two;
Mr. "Newlin after recommending a -com puF
sory enactment,, explains as follows how, it
is to be enforced : 'If the parent, guardian,
or uther. person fails to comply with tbeprqr
visions of this law. for the first onence be
shall be remonstrated with" by the teachers
or directors : and if he still neglects to send

fine, a commiimeniof the cJdld to 'sucli 'iiisii
tun on of instruction or house of correction as
m'ay be "provided for the purpose, for a period.
iwt exceeding one year,' f - ".!
.'And this proposition is made in-a Conven
tion of County Superintendents assembled in
the Capitol of our State, without any disap
probation, so far as we have heard !., .' ?
, here Mr, iNewlm was educated we go
not know," but wo hope," for' the honor of
Pennsylvania; it was not within ber borders.
If we were permitted te guess, we would un
hesitatingly say New England, . , But, be this
as it may, a better advocate of the ancient
Blue Laws' of Connecticut could 'not at this
day, perhaps, be found anywhere, 1 ' '
We, would ask: the editors of the'yidvocate
whence' the Legislature derives its power. to
interfere, in the manner suggested; with pa
rental authority ? Certainly uov from God,
or.God .cannot violate, much less authorize
the violation of, Ltis Iaw3 : and if our mem
ory, does not fail us we think there is noth-
lug mure tieiir m tue otiLicu oui ijjiui t-3 tuau
that God 'entrusted the care, education and
protection of tha child to the parents. Then
if the Legislature derive no such power from
God. is there no other source from which it
mayderive this power 1 iThe editors' may
answer, Yes J from , the people. .' How and
by what means'? By the people in 'their
collective; capacity, as; , electors. But how
come the people by, the right to violate tha
natural rights.of individuals ?. to punish pa
rents wheDLguuty of no crime ? to tear from
the bosom of the father and the mother, and
from the arms of the brother and the sister,
the innocent, helpless child, and place it in
a boute of correction ? If the people, then,
have no right to 'commit these barbarous
outrages and cruelties, how can they give
such a right to their representatives in the
Legislature?" "There is but one theory npon
wticn tnis Kina oi legislation could be sus
tained;" and that is that ' the people were
made for the government, and not the gov
ernment forthe people, Do the editors of
the Adcocaie adopt this theory ? , If. they do.
men. tn order to be logical, they mnst.show
tnat tne government has a creative, liie-eiv
ing power.-v- They: must, in short, hold that
the government 4s a deity. If it can create
the people, give them life and motion, then
it certainly can command and compel them
to do whatever it wills. This theory, it will
oe perceived, would oe in consonance with
the wont forms of paganism that ever ex
isted ; and although the editors cf the Ad
vocate would, we have no doubt, deprecate
the logtca result of such a theory as much
as any persons in the ' community! vet . it is
clear to us tbat the powers which they seem
to think reside In .'the Legislature of Dassine?
such enactments aa they nrge, would be to
mate cur government a. despotism of he
worst type that ever existed on the face of
the earth, r And it-is equally clear they can
sustain' the law;,, they.: suggest pn no other
.fif ths government possessed such jpowers
let ns see w bat limit, it ny, cnuid be put on
its legislation. If it could pass laws taptm- !
lsn parents ana children for neglecting to
embrace the opportunities of education af
forded them what law equally absurd 1 and'
tyranical cordd it not pass ? "Bat the editors
may say this law wpuld be for" the bepeSfrof
sdciety-if individuals ' should' in "certain
