Mate Convention of School Superin
tendent. A Stale Convention of County Superin
tendents was in session at Harrisburg for
several days last week. Representatives
from most of the counties wcio present. The
object wan to compare views in regard to
the administration of the school laws, and
endeavor to establish uniformity ic, the ays-,
tem of instruction through ttio State. For
Hal addresses were made by State Superin
tendent Vfickershaa and Got. Geary.
Man? aasjastloni at benefioial okanges ta
the school taws were made duriog the meet
lag. A resolution asking for the repeat of
the law exempting mortgages aud judgments
from scbeol taies wm adopted. At the close
f the tauveution Vr. Wickershnm made
another address, In which he promised nil
tbo aid in his power to the Comity Super
intendents. He had prepared a drnft of a
now law, which will bo submitted to the
next Legislature, a proper school system
for this Stato was .sine that would gather
into the school room children of all clashes,
colors and conditions. This wasr the only
just basis of public education. Academies,
high schools and colleges should be estab
lished and sustained by the Slate, with fa
cilities free to all. . We must look above
and beyond reading, arithmetic, grammar
and geography in our common school system
and next winter tho idea of progress In this
respect will be pressed to an isitr. This is
no new project In the mind of Mr. Wickcr
sbam, but has been the object ol his aspi
ration for years. His active and restless
disposition qualifies him highly as an
educational leader, nnd it will not be for
waLt of effort on his part if our public
schools do not rise higher and higher in the
standard of excellence.

Win, M. Lannhi nr, a stencil cutter, resid
ing at No. 06 Seneca street, suspecting un
due intimacy bctweon ono oi nis employes
named Georgo Stauiy and bis wife, who
boarded at the sarao bouse, wont to work
oarly tble morning, and returning found
Stttiiry In bed with his wife, no attacked
both with a kniie, indicting a wound In bis
wife's abdomon which will ntobubly prove
fatal, and severely wounding Stanry In the
Tiiottixo at Pa-KKALo, A circular from
tho Manageis of tho Hull'ilo Park Associa
tion, advises us of tho particulars of the
fourth annual meeting In that city, on the
10th, 11th, 12th, and 1 3 1 b inst. Tho suc
cess Qf tho previous meetings at this park,
has mado Ruii'alo a great trott'nj centre,
and the indications aro that this meeting
will surpass any of its predecessors. This
section will, doubtless, be well represented
at this tirno. The premium list amounts to
the grand total ui twenty -five thousand dol
lars, which Is larger than was ever before
offered by any association. Tho largest
puiso otl'ered is one of SlO.iiiO, and tho
smallest of $1,000. Tho prizes are arrang
ed to accommodate nil clarses of horses,
from thr o minuto nags to tho best flyers in
the coiiutrv. Among tho celel rated horses
that will probably be present, u-u may men
tion tho American Girl, cow tho nucon of
tho turf, Goldsmith Maid. Lady Tboru,
Mountain Coy, Bashaw, jr., Goorge Palmer,
Georgo Wilkes, Rhode Island, Danver'e
Roy, Tattler, Rolla Gold Dut, and many
other flyers. Among tho double teams are
expected Twang and Mack, Jessto Wales
and Darkness, Gen. McClellan and Gari
baldi, India Rubber Ren and Rosa, and old
Put and Honest Allen. Iu addition to hor
ses that have made their reputation, there
bids fair to be more than the usual number
of ''shady" animals, a very deceiving class,
which ate always developed in great trot
ting mitchos, like Dinver's Roy, ut Mystic
Park, for instance, who went in a racfl for
three minute horses and won a heat in 2 :2S.
K!he3. The principal ebargo against
Rsv. Mr. Linn, of Pittsburgh, tried tor
iniiaoral conduct; was that ho kissed one
or two young ladies. Is it bi,ij immwai
to kiss yoiQ ladies? Hero is a question
that might profitably engage tho learned la
bors of debating societies, if you ask tho
young ladies to decido tho question their
verdict will probably bo that if tho kisser
be a gentlemen, and the Uissec be willing,
there is no guile in tho ovent. But, as a
general thing, wo should be inclined to vole
in tho opposite direction. H depends
great deal, wo admit, upon the kind of kiss
administered. Wo have the kis3 paternal,
the itiss brotherly, tho kiss cunningly, the
kiss ministerial, probably Mr. I.iun used
this oue, tho k;ss conventional, the kiss
fo.-Mt oia't 1c, very much like an icicle, ihe
kin ol ilii lation, the kiss s oouey, ueil ever
so many other kisses which have been con
siden d alioM able, even if administered by
7uuug and iiutcl it-'d parlies. Tho suIpsI
way, however, is lu slick faithfully to tho
kiss matrimonial, and never to administer
or receive that unless tho church has set
her setl upon il. Such pyrotechnics
caluiuiioiis without sacred suleguards.
