facts, cr were influenced by other considera
tions than the merits of the application.
*' There are other matters urged by the re
spondents which we pass without expression of
opinion. We prefer to adjudge the case
squarely upon its merits. Having done so,
we are of opinion, that the petition be dis
missed at the costs of the petitioners. The
evidence taken iu the case made a part cf the
OPINIO!? or TUE SUPREME COURT.
The opiniou of the Court was delivered at
Philadelphia, January 7th, 1801, by Chief
Jnslice COWRIE, as follows :
The school law does not leave the Directors
without any discretion relative to sending chil
dren to the schools of an adjoining district,
and does not seriously impair the district di
visions. Each Board has express discretion
relative to the school i c it kin the district which
each pupil shall attend ; and it would be quite
absurd to leave them without it, when there
is a nearer school in adjoining district to which
the pupil wishes to go.
There must be great distance and great diffi
culty of access to the schools of the district,
before there can be any right to ask to be
sent to a more convenient school of an adjoin
ing district, and it seems to us that there is
nothing of the kind here. Whether the dis
tance or difficulty of access is to be regarded
as great or not, depends much upon circum
stances, such as the age of children, the den
sity of the population, and the customs of the
locality ; and therefore must be left, in a
great degree, to the discretion of the Direct
ors ; and cf course, their abuse of this discre
tion must be very clear, before they can be
adjudged guilty of official misconduct. We
must be liberal and generous towards this dis
cretion, iu reviewing the exercise of it ; for a
strict and jealous supervision would be fatal
to the discretion itself. We must not inter
pret the law so as to keep the Directors in
perpetual fear of the courts, nor so as to set
thein to guard against this law, bj so arrang
ing their school houses around the district,
that few or none can have a chance of claim
ing that any school of an adjoining district is
We think that the dismissal of the plain
stiff's petition is fully justified by the reasons
assigned by the learned President of the Ses
sions. It is well for the school system, for the
peace of neighborhoods, and for the securing
of discreet men for Directors, that he has so
treated the case, as to warn men that they
must be cautious in attempting to get the
courts to interfere with the discretion of the
Honorable and trustworthy men will rot
accept public positions, if they understand it
to be the rule, that all their official acts are
■abject to a suspicious supervision by the peo
ple, or by their official superiors. Real worth
is generous in its judgment and treatment of
and will always expect the same for
itself, and will resent the contrary, by refus
ing all public functions that arc subject to it.
Wo must here add, that this case ought not
to have been brought here without a special
Order affirmed at the costs of the petition
ers, and record remitted.
FACTS FOR TOOK FARMERS. —"Those farm
ers who have most difficulty to make ends
meet, always plough most and keep most stock.
Now these men take the true plan to keep
themselves always poor and bring little." So
writes John Johoston, in a letter to the secre
tary of our state society ; and he thus illus
trates his statement : "Itis a good profit to
raise three hundred bushels of wheat from
ten acres, but when it takes thirty acres to
raise that amount it is raised at a loss. So it
is with cattle and sheep—you will see the
thinking farmer making four year old steers
worth from sixty to eighty dollars each, and
his neighbor's at the same age not worth over
twenty five to forty dollars." His advice to
the latter is, "if his land is exhausted he
should plough no more than he can thorough
ly manure. Seed with clover and grass and
let it rest, and that field will not only pay
well for tillage, but it will furnish manure (i'f
rightly managed) to make another field of the
same size rich also." And then keep it rich,
do not run it with grain until again exhausted
or " the latter end of that land will be worse
than the first."— Country Gentleman.
NEXT THING TO AN ANGEL UPON EARTH —A
gentleman walking through Knightsbridge o.i
Sunday overheard the following conversation
between a man and a woman, who appeared
as if just come from some pleasure trip into
Woman. "Blow me, Bill, bow tired I do
feci ! I'm as miserable, too, as a starved her
ring. What a miserable world is this ! I
wish I'd never been born, that I cio; and now
that I am born, I wish myself dead again."
Man. "Why, Bet, what's the matter with
you now ? What arc you grumbling about ?"
Woman. "Why dou't I tell ycr 1 am as mis
erable as a rat ?"
Man. " Miserable, indeed ! Why, what on
earth would yer have? You was drunk Mon
day. and you was drunk again Wednesday,and
I'm blessed if you havu't had pretty near
enough to-day. If that ain't enough pleasure
for yer, I'll be blasted if I know what is. I
suppose you wants to be a downright hangcl
ere upon hearth."— English Payer.
A QCEER MISTAKE. —One of the ridiculous
mistakes which will sometimes befall soldiers,
befell a whole file of the snugly attired mili
tary of New Orleans on the day of the Twiggs
reception. They were drawn up along the
street in front of a building in course of con
struction, and close in their rear was a long
bed, two feet deep with that plastic
composition, ready for the workmen. The
space between the files, for the passage of the
carriages, being rather narrow, the officer or
dered his men to take a step back. They did
so, and about twenty feet of " sogers " instan- '
taneously disappeared from sight backwards,
the front file,in close order,preventing the rear
rank from rcovering themseives when their
heels stumbled against the mortar bed. They
were submerged, and every soldier of them
had his pretty uniform spoiled. They took
caps, and absquatulated iustanter.
WHAT IS THF. PALMETTO ?—The South Caro
linians have udopted the palmetto as an em
blem of their State. The palmetto is defined
as a cabbage tree. It attaius the bight of
forty or fifty feet, and is the tallest of our
palms. The 6umnait is crowned with tuft a of
leaves, varying in length aud breadth from ope
to five feet which gives it a majestic appear
ance. Flowers, small greenish, and disposed
in long clusters. Fruit about as large as a
pea, iuescolent. Wood of no value, except for
the construction of wharves. Iu short, it is as
nearly worthless as a tree can be.
