"Four things are neeeshary to tho
Common Schools : First, That educa

men of all political faiths to unite in
the system. Third, That it shall unite

That by its intrinsiu merit it continue

ruder the first head, he nsscrls tlmt
a common education should lie given
to rich and poor, whites and negroes
lliiiinuliiiut the whole Vniud Slates.
I'riiler llio fourth head, he argued that
children should be taught not only
reading, writing, arithmetic, and geog-
raphy, but tbo mica of heiihh and
bodily purity, and the law sol morality,
so as to prepare them to boeonio vigor
ous, onergetie, and useful citicens. He
held that tbe Stato ought to mnko its
system compulsory upon parents.
His remark upon the second ami
third heads are subjoined :
"Secondly. Our Common Schools
must lie so constituted as that thev
shall enable all political parties to unite
in their maintenance and in tho ea
thusiasin of them. Their existonco

great public interest from becoming
a memo ot consideration ; nut it does
not follow because every party will
first or lost, he culled to" act on tho
Common School question, therefore the
party will attempt, by its own machin
ery, to act upon Common SchooK The
work can be put into departments, nnd
that which I say Is that the depart
ments must carry it forward, but must
nut belong to s party. Above all, po
litical influenco should" not bu snln-rod
to officer and control the school. It is
an olitrtgo for the sakoof political re
ward lo put into the hands of incom
petent men the care of children. Tl

send a wet nurse, tn do it ; and if a bubo

phemy against tho Holy (iiiost ol in

sidcifd as having committed, not a
blunder, but a sacriligioiis crime, thai
attempt lo givo tho sacred fire of edu
cation into unpriestly hands, into the
hands of men who themselves have
foul mouths and foul hands. And
when I think of some of the iinrevealed
revelations ; when I know that in
nlaces not far from Ibis men who havo
been appointed to the general conduct
of schools havo made their lust the
prico of advancement; when 1 know
that blackmail nnd favoritism have
wrought by those who havo been put
as high priests of culture, I am
glad that it was enough only to
lilt tho coroor of thu screen, and
let tho moginntiion tell whnt was

healed. But that which was done in
the dry tree may bo done In tho green

to the dnnger of putting the great in
terests of Common School education
into the hands of men with no other
qualification than that they are casta

Part of Dr. Creel's history is a mat

that ho was ono of the jurors In tho

1807. So fur as our venerable friend
knows he is the sole man remaining of

States. There is probably no' doubt
that ho is the only one left, as ho was
ono ot the youngest of the jurors, and
he is now over ninety years old.

there wns most perfect silence in the

nnd splendid in all ho did or said. Kv
ery word made a most profound im
pression on tho jury. 1 shall never

"Was he so eloquent?''
"No, ha w as ma eloquent ut all, in

wns not a bit flowery in his language.
It was just clear, jneciso and simple,
with no ultempl whatever ut orna

clearly that they had lo soo it."
"What was tho lamination about

Was a charm about him that no hu

had risen to those giddy heights,
Among those who recollect tho bril
liant career of tbo great chess king,
there are tery low who could tell you
anything about bis existence during
tbe past ton yean, or, Indeed, wbothor
be lives or Is dead, .
But it it safe to assume that tho ro-
vival of the subject bore will prove a
matter of much Interest to tbousandi
ibr although Jlorphy dropped from the
world's view many yoara ogo lie has
not by any means been forgotten;
and tho Very mention or his name, al
most anywhere, will snflicc to awaken
a curious desire to know whnt has he
come of bim, and what has boen his
history since ho resigned his crown in
tho domuin of chess.
Wilh the wonderful and dnz.ling cu
lver of Morpby in 1KS9 and 1800 all
men are familiar. What led lo it will
here be recited. Ho was born in New
Orleans in 1840, of a creolo family,
rich and respected. When a mero lad
ho evinced un aptitude for chess, and
in six months niter having played his
first gumo ho developed Into a ninrvel.
out player. Ho not only beuC his fa
ther and his teachers, but vanquished
the best chess players in tho city, and
in throe months more had so progressed
that among the most skillful pluyui-s
ul Ihegumciu New Orleans and there
were many good ones hero nono could
even approach him.
At this time his fitmo bnd traveled
not only to tho North in his own coun
try, hut to Kiiropo, and then his star
began to riso until it becamo brightly
conspicuous on two continents. Ilis
entraiM-e upon llio lileol a public chess
playor wos effected against the remon
strances ol his parents end bis kindred
who saw somethine irnoblo in the nub
lie parade of young Morphy't talents,
and tuo cultivation ol the notoriety
which would necessurily follow. Bui
Paul was charmed ut tho prospect of
becoming faniout, and no argument
could turn mm Irom tho conmc upon
which ho had set his soul. So ho bo
camo great, but it will bo hereinafter
seen that as the price of his fame, was
bis family's sorrow, it enmo homo to
bun in alter years, and made bim a
morbid, melancholy man. It has at
Inst reduced him to a nientul wreck,
and ho is now an inmate of a private
asylum, where ho has resided ibr tho
past three months, and whence he will
perhaps never emerge alive, as he is
considered to be hopelessly insane.
When Morphy relumed from Flu
rope in 1800, alter bis magncent tri
umphs there, it was not as a conqueror
that he en me, but at a man who, line.

F'rom tho hour of las arrival here ho
declared he had done with chess for
thu rest of bis life, and be not only
vowed never to play or look upon a
chess board more, but bo expressly en
joined upon all who knew him to never
allude to tho subject of chess in his
prceonco, save under pain of bis severest
displeasure, it came to be generally
understood that , he had - thus set
his fuca against what had onco been
his pride and ambition, bocauso to its
indulgence ho charged not only a re
morseful feeling at having crossed the
wishes of his parents, hut likowise llio
forfeiture ot brilliant prospects. At
all events ho despised chess as much
as he had once loved it, and ho stead
fastly refused to mingle in tho world
beyond the confines of his own kindred.
Thus ho lived a secluded and morbid
existence here until the outbreak of the
late war, when, in comiiniiv with sev
eral members of his family, ho went
In 1RUC ho returned to New Orleans
and renewed his life hero under the
samo conditions which had prevailed
boftire his departure, save perhaps I but
he was moro retire ! than ever. Slill
ho wns a conspicuous character, ah
though no oneexcept his mother could
lay claim to hit friendship or his no
tice. Hit daily routiue of existence in
volved a wnlk nn Canal street every
morning, where his dapper littlo figure
always scrupulously well dressed
became as well known and as regularly
looked for as the noonday bell. Alter
his daily promcnado ho retired from
public gaze until evening, when he a
prnrcd in ids box at tho opera, where
it is said bo never missed a night, ll
is further related that during theso
years he permitted unfriendly acquaint

with anybody but his mother, nnd ver
sistently repelled advances from those
who, having boen friends nf hit carly
youtb, desired lo renew their associa
tions. He liveilasti-nngelifcastrange,

Twelve months ago, he began to
show tho first positive symptoms ol a
breaking down of bis mental faculties,
snd he soon manifested tilt h eccentri
cities of disposition in public life, that

alarmed about bim.
This concern, as it proved, was not
without warrant. Ho continued to
manifest increased symptoms of men
tal aberration, and alb vainly striving
to battle with the inevitable, his mo
ther sadly recognised the tact that her
son was Insane, and three months ego,
as already recited in this article, he as
placed iu an asylum.

Mr. Alexander llyibt, a well known
agriculturist of Massachusetts, com
municates to the Now York 7V)iu some
useful suggestion., in regard to keep
ing apples through the winter. One
method in to wrap each apple in n bit
of newspsper, tho paper serving both
to Iti-nn mil I Im i,i-i,,-i.i it tl,..
applet from bruising in trsnsporfuliim.i
A method mom illecinul still is to till1
the barrel nearly full of apples, and j
then put in some line, dry sand or pow-
dered plaster, and shake it down gent-
ly. 'J'li it will lill up all interstices be
tween tho apples, and keep lln-in fresh
indefinitely. Another inode is to put
the apples in some dry, sandy or grav
elly soil, just as potatoes nro pitted.
On this point Mr. Hyde save: "They
will keep splendidly through Iho win
ter when tints pilled, hut must be used
speedily in tho spring after they are
dug out, as they will rot soon alter ex
posure to the light and air. In order
to pit apples, select somo dry spot
where there is no possibility of water
filling the pit, and dig a hole three or
four li-et deep and of uny reouired size.
place somo clean, dry straw on the
bottom, and on this the apples to the
depth of two feet, covering the whole
with a layer of straw nnd then a layer
of ilrv earth, raising tho latter above
the geuenil level of the ground and
sloping it root-bisbion, so that it will
shed rain. The apples will como out j
in the spring as crisp as cuubugu when
pitted in this way. .
A Sinoi'Lar ArFAilt.- We learn that
within the hist two weeks :. aniirular
discovery has been unulo at the house
of Jesse tiartli, lor many years deceased
It is said Unit a distinct and accurate
likeness of Mrs. Garth, who has men
dead for twenty years, can be seen on
a pane of glass in tho tipper sash of
one of the windows, presenting very
much the appearance of a photograph
negative. The discovery is said to
havo been made by a woman who was
washing clolhet in the yard, w ho im
agined somo one wns watching her
through the window, ond went Insult'
to too who it w us. Wo gut her. these
facts from Dr. Charles liroun, who
has himself seen the singular picture.
Dr. Brown remembers thai about twen
ty years ago Mr. (iartb told him thut
Ins wile, whilo standing nt that win
dow, was stunned by a sudden flash ol
lightning, and the doctor's theory is
thai the outlines of her features were
photographed on the window pane at
that time. The youngest daughter ol
Mr. (j'nrlh and others, who were well
acquainted with Mrs. Curth, havo seen
the picture und pronounce it a striking
likeness, ll is said tu be more distinct
about nine o'clock in tho morning and
llireo In tho allernoon than at any
other timo of tho day. ChirhUf( 'a.)
