J. SIMPSON AFRICA,
WEST TOWNSHIP, April 12, 1861.
MR. EDITOR havo seated myself
for the purpose of answering your call
to correspondents. It has been sever
al months since I wielded my pen for
the columns of the GLOBE.
Locals ars scarce. If you doubt it
Mr. Editor read the productions of
that high-toned, literary apparatus of
Mooresville, whose gaseous effusions
appear in the Journal & American,
signed " SYKESY."
It is very strange that a little learn
ing makes fools of so many promising
young men. What volumes of unsul
lied truth the following lines contain :
4 ' A little Insruing Is n dangerous thing—
Di ink deep, or tante not the Pierian spring."
How true ! " Sykesy" has not im
bibed enough of the sweet waters to
enable him to know that ho knows
nothing. If he had he would not come
out with language as egotistical and
sarcastic as the following :
" Why the man (Farmer") must be out
of Ms mindl It is a greater job to re
flect on or silence "Sykesy" than Hercu
les had to clean the Augean Stables and
it seems to strike me as being over sensitive
in a man of " Farmer's" capacity to un
dertake the job."
Again he speaks of his (" Sykesy's"
of course) "consistency." And in the
same would bo communication says :
"Partner" you will have to post
yourself better in newspaper corres
pondence before you can compete with
your eye-sore "Sykesy."
What sentiments to be placed in the
hands of our youth for their perusal,
by one who pretends to be a teacher—
a literary man if you please. A model
man after whom the rising generation
may copy. Such men should not be
intrusted with the instruction of youth.
The teacher should bo a model man.—
Self praise is no recommendation, and
when we hear men boast of their own
abilities. We want no better assurance
that they are men of very contracted
minds, and as a natural consequence
Such correspondence is an injury to
society; it is not looked upon by think

than that of a nuisance, calculated to
foster a spirit of contention and ill feel

schools in this county, and am sorry
to say that in many townships the
great cause of education is spiritually
A great number of the teachers are
unfit to teach. Not particularly so
with regard to the subject matter to
be taught but the ability to communi

is no system of school government.—
System. and order constitute the first
law of Heaven. And they are as es
sential in the school-room as in the
The people appear to be laboring
under that mistaken idea that if a man
can only " read, write and cipher" he
is fit to teach. They overlook the
great leading principle which under
lies the profession of teaching—the abil
ity to impart instructions. It matters
little how well a man may be versed
in the branches to be taught if he has
no system of instruction and govern
ment he is still unqualified for the res
ponsible duties of the teacher.
But I wish to speak more particu
larly of the condition of education in
this township. First, the salaries given
in the district will not secure good
teachers. No man who has devoted
time and expended money to acquire
an education will teach for twenty-five
and twenty-eight dollars per month.—
While those who aro not qualified and
teach only for want of other employ
ment will offer their services for a
The directors and patrons take no
interest in the education-of their chil
dren. And the result is that there is
no spirit in the schools.
The parents instead of visiting the
schools as they should, are disposed to
find fault with their teachers and in
some instances, quarrel with them
sometimes without any just cause.—
The parent and teacher should work
If a man go into his field to plow
and one of his horses goes forward and
the other in the opposite direction he
will not get much accomplished. The
same principle is true in all depart
ments of business where two parties
are concerned. Fathers and mothers
should often be found in the school
room; instead of that they scarcely, if
ever darken the door. And we have
heard some respectable citizens in this
township, contend that they had no
business there. That the school law
has provided for the election of six cit
izens in each township for the purpose
of directing the schools and therefore
the parent has no right to enter the
school house door without an invita
tion from one of the directors. What
an idea! And yet we have beard
men thus express themselves. The
church and the school room are places
the parent should be found frequently.
' There is no other method known
to me by which any Board of Directors
can do as much for their schools as
that of appointing an efficient member
of the board to act as district superin
Every board of directors should
meet at least once each month during
the school term. And if at each of
their meetings one wits appointed to
visit the schools and take a note of
the condition of each school in the
township, and make a report at the
next meeting. • The teachers, pupils,
and patrons would be awakened to a
sense of their respective duties, and
our schools would grow in interest,
and cease to be what many of them
are—useless fixtures in which children
idle away their time.
Mr. Editor, I should like to dwell
longer upon this important subject but
time will not permit. Perhaps I may
give you my views in detail at some
Yours as UBual,
COFFEE RuN, April 13, 1861.
FRIEND LEWIS :—As our last com
munication seemed to create some sen
sation amongst the literary men of our
locality, RS to who or where the "Moun
taineer" might be found. I will en
deavor to augment their wonder by
writing another Epistolam. Nothing
of great importance has transpired in
our mountain home since our last, ex
cept we have had a very agreeable
change in the weather.
The industrious population of our
neighborhood seem to have run out of
work, from the fact that they have
commenced digging for oil near the
mouth of Coffee Run. For some time
the prospects for " daddy's ile" seemed
to be flattering, and the repeated cry of
" 0111" seeme almost intense. But
the excitement has all died away, and
they again content themselves by
"pounding away." We wish them
speedy success as we also burn the oil.
The GLOBE seems to receive the
praise over all the papers sent to our
" loco." We have frequently heard it
asserted that the GLOBE is the largest
best and prettiest paper in the Co.—
Friend Lewis, you must not bo sur
prised if you receive a list of about a
dozen subscribers, some of these " odd
co m e-shorts."
We confidentially say all our other
Co. papers dwindle into insignificance
when compared with your magnificent
sheet. Let any one deny this and we
will be about at the proper season.—
FRIEND LEWIS :—After a brief silence
I would again resume my pen to give
you the most important news. First
of all, for I believe everybody should
know it, the Cassville Seminary is in
full blast. It is under the supervision
of Prof. Hughes & McLain. The youth
of both sexes would do well in coming
to this institution of learning, where
they can breath the fresh mountain
air, and drink as pure water as ever
bubbled up from the earth. This is
the cheapest and the best institution
in this section of country. If sterling
integrity, substantial worth, and pro
found intellectual attainments, form
the qualifications necessary for the vo
cation of teaching, then no one is more
pre-eminently qualified to fill that high
station than James W. Hughes.
In looking over a late Herald, I saw
a communication over the signature of
" Potter." Now Ido not wish to mis
construe him in any way, but evident
ly to believe what he says, our little
village and vicinity is a perfect-pande
mominn. He writes thus :" A man in
this vicinity made an attempt to cut
his throat with a razor, and to mur
der his family." This happened in
Bedford Co., some 20 miles front here.
Secondly : "A man and his son caught
a Frenchman in this vicinity, and beat
him over the head with a lath till they
had pretty near killed him." This
happened some fifteen or sixteen miles
from here. Now Ido not wish to ex
cite "Potter's" anger, but he should
not make Cassville and vicinity worse
than it really is.
The crops look well in this vicinity,
the farmers have taken to liming which
is a good step. They have commenced
to work their ground, preparatory for
the spring crop. More anon.
A Penitent Secessionist
(From the Evrning Bulletin.]
Among the most enthusiastic of se
cessionists in the West was one Ogilvie
Byron Young. He was full of bluster
and bombast as the best of them, and.
he made speeches everywhere, trying
to stir up the people of the Border
States to secede. Finally, he went to
Montgomery to give moral, intellectu
al and material aid to the Government
of Jeff. Davis. After watching and
waiting a long time, he has at last been
disenchanted, and now openly secedes
from secession. He has written a long
letter to a lady of Louisville, which is
an extraordinary specimen of compo
sition. We have no room for the
whole of it, as we find it in the Cin
cinnati Commercial, but a few passages
will illustrate Mr. Young's views and
penitence. Here is his announcement
of his conversion :
"You will be as much delighted as astoun
ded to learn of my conversion and redemp
tion from the bonds of political death and in
iquity. My conversion has been as sudden,
but no less genuine, than that of Saint Paul,
who declared himself the greatest of sinners'
—such am I. ' But the scales have fallen
from eyes,' and I now see this most unnatu
ral and unnational Monster, SECESSION, in all
his naked ugliness and hideous deformity.—
It is a splendid cheat—a magnificent humbug
—a stupendous lie—a gigantic deception,
destined to dissolve before the light of reason
and good sense, ' like tho baseless fabric of a
"I would to God all men could see and
comprehend this movement, and the aims
and purposes of its originators as I do now ;
then would they be swept off ' in the twink
ling of an eye.' by the irresistible decree of
one united voice. But like the arch deceiver
of mankind, they present not themselves
nor their true light.'
This, it will be acknowledged, is ra
ther "tall writing." Mr. Ogilvie By
ron Young uses strong language, and
indulges in lofty flights of fancy. Such
a genius must have been invaluable in
the ranks of the Secessionists; for ho
excels in all the traits that have mark
ed its most distinguished leaders. Ho
will not suit so well among the Union
ists; so that we are not inclined to ex
ult over his conversion. We want
men to act and not to bluster. But
hear 0. B. Y. again. A little further
on he says :
" These Southern traitors dare not reveal
themselves to the people in their real char
acter. They dare not unmask their purposes
—were they—they would be hurled, instant
/y, by an avenging populace, to the Guillo
tine or the Bastile."
"Hurling" the Confoderators to "the
Guillotine or the Buetile" is a new why
of disposing of them, which, we pre
sume, has not yet been suggested to
President Lincoln. He goes on to say
that Jeff. Davis designs to create a
monarchy with himself as king. Then
" he will re-enact the coup d'etat of
Louis Napoleon, and the country will
emerge from anarchy - under a bloody
sceptre and an iron crown." He asks,
in view of this, "are we drifting on
the Bosphorus or the Danube ?" To
which we cannot give an answer,
unless he explains whether he means
to say that Jeff Davis is to be the boss
for us. Better the Danube than that.
But hear once more how Mr. 0. B. Y.
describes the condition of the nation.
"The alarm of civil strife now rings its
discordant notes throughout this once happy
land, aye, with electrical rapidity, it has
flashed athwart-the Atlantic, and while it
has surcharged the once bounding heart of
Freedom's toiling host, in that land of tyran
ny and oppression, with unutterable sorrow,
it has re enkindled the flickering rays of ex
piring hope, in the black breasts of guilty
despots, that even here, in the land of Wash
ington, Freedom, in her own household—by
her own hand—will find an early grave, and
despotism a lasting throne."
This is grand, but not so grand as
the passage in which he formally re
pudiates the Confederate Government
and its leaders. Ile does it thus :
"Of such a foul set of unconsecrated trai
tors, be it written upon my tomb, that I lived
and died in nothing their debtor. I have
washed my hands of them forever, sighing
that my country ever should have been curs
ed by such inhuman monsters of turpitude
and depravity. They are a band of hydra
headed, tripled.tongued r -eloven-footed, hell
begotton, Heaven-forsaken set of unmitigated
traitors—whom, if the entire earth was a ful
crum, and the wh_l Heavens a lover, Al
mighty God could tW, in the space of a thou
sand years, elevate to the level of common
culprits. If there is rolled up in the caligi
nous sheets of hell a more exquisite place of
cold-blooded, black-hearted treason than Jeff.
Davis, the Devil himself would abdicate his
throne, and fiends would run howling from
the infernal shades, to escape the presence of
a monster of depravity too hideous even for
the damned to look upon. A monster—who,
living every patriot breast should abhor, and
who, when his career of mischief is ended,
should go down the tide of time with Arnold
and Burr, to infamy everlasting. Fur him
there is no redemption—there is no interme
diate purgatory—nothing less than damna
tion awaits here and hereafter."
We have no word of comment to
add to this. But Jeff. Davis and his
confederates have reason to lament the
loss of such a partisan. Such eloquence
as his has done much to build up their
government. We don't need it in the
North. We can simply commend to
our Southern brethren this advice of
" 0. B. Y.'s," and beg them to construe
it "0 be wise." Then they, too, will
repudiate the Montgomery Govern
The Reinforcement of the Forts.
Whatever may be the future policy
of our Government, lifter . the Ameri
can people have fully considered all
the questions which are connected
with the existing complications, it is
clearly its duty for the present to pre
serve its dignity, and to hold possess
ion of all the important posts that have
not already been wrested from it.—
There is an extensive and desperate
rebellion organized in a portion of our
country, which may succeed in forev
er dividing the Union,.or which may
possibly be-eheeked4lLut whether the
schemes of the conspirators prove in
the end successful or unsuccessful, it
is still the imperative duty of the Ex
ecutive now to employ all the availa
ble force at his disposal for the protec
tion of the public property—peaceably
if he can, forcibly if ho must.
If the ramparts of the Confederacy
are all to fall, let it not be said that
the mere sounding of a few secession
trumpets caused their destruction, and
that the Federal Government submit
ted to every imaginable indignity and
every unreasonable exaction without
striking a single blow in self-defence.
No one favors a cruel and revengeful
war against the comparatively feeble
States which have been as audacious
and aggressive as they are weak and
defenceless. But, certainly, if they
are eventually to be permitted to sever
their connection with a nation which
has showered benefits upon them, their
people should have ample opportuni
ties for calm reflection and for clearly
and unmistakably expressing their un
biased wishes, "while full guarantees
should be secured for all jeopardized
interests of the loyal States, before
Disunion becomes a legal finality.—
Even ordinary business partners, or
married couples, between whom dis
putes might arise to render separation
desirable, would not be justified in re
sorting to such summary and criminal
proceedings as have disgraced every
step of the Southern Confederacy, and
the strong arm of the law would speed
ily be invoked to arrest them until a ,
full investigation could be made and
impartial justice administered.
The military movements which have
recently attracted so much attention,
are supposed to have three objects:
To furnish supplies, and, if necessary,
reinforcements to Fort Sumter. To
render Fort Pickens impregnable. To
protect the citizens of Texas from the
assaults of their Indian and Mexican
enemies, notwithstanding their seces
sion, and, if necessary, to sustain Gen.
Houston, the legal Governor of the
State, in a contest against the usurp
ing Administration set up by the Rev
olutionists. It is said that nothing
but a humiliating surrender of Fort
Sumter, would satisfy General Beaure
gard and the South Carolina authori
ties—that a simple evacuation of that
post would not be permitted, and that
the supplies were cut off from Major
Anderson for the purpose of starving
his garrison into submission to this ar
rogant proposition. If blood is shed,
it will be because an attempt to fur
nish him with necessary provisions
and fuel is forcibly opposed; and if a
contest is forced upon the patient and
forbearing people of the north on such
an issue as this, a terrible retribution
will await those who inaugurate it.
The importance of Fort Pickens, in
a military point of view, cannot be
over-estimated. In the possession of
our Government, it may become a
base of operations from which our
fleets can be fitted out to blockade any
of the Gulf ports, or to seize the ma
rauding expeditions which the humane
Montgomery Government threatens to
organize, and to keep open a pathway
to any of the C. S. A. which become
excessively haughty and aggressive.—
On the other hand, if Fort Pickens is
taken by the Secessionists, they can
make Pensacola their great naval de
pot, and have ample opportunities for
realizing their favorite scheme of send-
ing out privateers to prey upon Amer
ican commerce in the Gulf of Mexico
and the Caribbean Sea, while Pensa
cola Bay, with its entrance guarded
by the guns of our fortress, will afford
them a safe shelter. Their object in
assailing it is, therefore, perfectly
plain, and the very reasons which
prompt them to attack it render it im
peratively necessary that we should
defend and hold it, at all hazards and
under all contingencies.
Every patriot should rejoice that
such signs of vitality and energy are
now being exhibited in defence of the
national interests, by the Administra
tion, which is the only authoritative
symbol and embodiment of the Gov
ernment of our country. If it were
to abdicate all its powers, and to neg
lect all its duties, we should be com
pletely at the mercy of as treasonable,
reckless, and tyrannical a band of con
spirators as the world ever saw; and
the confidence and respect of the truly
loyal portion of the American people
will be increased and strengthened
with each new proof it gives of a de
termination to faithfully and fearless
ly discharge all its constitutional du
ti es.— The Press.

A portion of the Sunday-Wool Times is occupied with
Narratives and other matter particularly interesting to
young perms. Teachers will find in it much that they
will like to rend to their classes—lnteresting matter pre
pared to their hands, and such as they cannot find else

The Sunday-School Times has every week a report of
the choicest matter, selected from tho Noon Prayer Meet

Besides a largo amount of general religious intelligence,
the Sunday-School Times contains all the moat recent Sun
