of the 'school. The time which, other
boys spent'in pl-ay,lsiMa occupied in mak

"Tinya-ling-ling-ljng !—went the, little
bell on the-teacher's desk ' of a village
school one morning, when the_ Studies, ; - or
the early part of the day 'were abdut half
completed. It was well nhderstood. that
this was-a command Thr silence and 'atm.

the master spoke: _lle was a., Joiv' thick

The one to whom be spoke ,came for

of about, fourteen; and his face had alatigh:

the charge now praerred against lrim,and

stripling_stood before that Place 'Ofjudg

of heartless and coarse brutality, of timid
innocence confused, helpless ,childhood
outraged, and gentle feelings crushed,—
Lugare.looked on hip with a frowd which
plainly told that he felt in nu Very,pleas
antmood: . Happily a worthier_aml more

that schools can be better governed than
by lashes, -and tears and sighs. We are

"" No impudence!" exclaimed the teach:

evening. You Were seen, Tim Baker, to
come from under Mr. Nichol's garden
fence; a little after nine o'clock, Vith a
bag,thil: of something or other, over J your
shoulder. The...bag had every appearance
of being filled' fruit; and this' morn
lug the ,: melon-beds are found to have
been completely cleared. NOAV,.sir, what
was therein the bag 1 )1 ', itself glowed the face of the
detected. lad. He spoke not a word. All
i 'the school had their eyes directed at him.
j The perspiration ran down his white, fore
head like rain drops.
" Speak,- sir !" exclaimed Lngare, with_
j a loud strike of his ratan on the' desk.
The boy loOked. as ,
though he would
faint. But •the unmercifid teacher, confi
dent ,of hav ; ing - brought to light a - Crimi
nal, and exulting in the idea of the severe-.
chastisement he- should' - now be justified
in inflicting, kept working himself up to a.
still greater and greater degree:ofpassion: ,
In the meankime,,the child; seemed hardly
to know-what to - dobirnself. His
tono•necleaved-to . the roof ofhis mouth..
Either he was very much frig,h'tened, or
be was actually unwell. - - •
" Speak, I say !' again thundered . Lu

"I hardly can; sir s " - said the poor-fellow
faintly: His.voiee was husky and thick:
" I will. tell you dome—some

Glad enough of •the. ungracious permid
sion,.and answeriug not a sound,. the child
crept trembling to - his bench. - He' felt
Very strangely, dizzily—chore as if he wad
'in a dream than in real life ; And laying
his lulus on his desk, bowed down bid face
between them. The pupils turned to their
accustomed stridies, for during the ,reign
of Lugarein the Village-school, they had
been so used to scenes of violence .and'se-
Vere chastisement, thnt-such things made.'
but little interruption irk the tenor of their
way. ' -
'Now; While the intervening hour is
passing, we -will clear up the- -mystery 'of
the hag, and of young Baker being under
the garden-fence-on the pre - eeding night.
The boy's mother was a widow, and ,they
both had to live in the narrowest limits: ,
RN father bad died - when-he wag six years
old, and little Tim was left - a sickly, ema
ciated infant Whoin no one : expected to
'live many months. 'To' the surprise of all,
however ; the poor little child kept alive,
and sLeeined to recover his health, as he
certainly did his size and good looks.—
This was owing to the kind .offices of an
eminent physician who had a country-seat
in the neighborhood
,and who bad been
interested-in the widow's little
Tim, the physician said, might- possiblY
outgrow his disease ;-but everything was
uncertain- It -was a -mysterious -and
affiing mal a dy; and it. would not be. won
derful lf be should in some moment of
apparent health be suddenly taken. away.
The poOr. widow was at first in a continu
al state of uneasiness ; ',but- several years
hid now passed and none of the..impend
ingevils had fallen upon the boy's 'head..
His mother seemed to feel confident that
he Would live,. and be khelp and an hon
or to her old age ; and the Oro' struggled
an together,mutually happy in each other, -
and enduring much of poverty and dis- -
cornfort,without repining, each ler the
other's sake.
Tim's pleasant - disposition had made
hito.inany friends:- in ..the village, • and
amongst the rest a'yenng" farmer narned
Janes, who with his elder brotheriworked
a largeTirmin the neighborhood on shares.
Jones very frequently made Tim a-pres
ent'of a bag of•potatoes or corn,.Oi• some
garden vegetables, *Nell: he took'from
his own Stock; but as his partner was :a.
.parsimonious-, high-temperedLman, • and
had often said that Tim was an idle'. fel-.
low;'and ought not to be helped beeause
he did not work; .Joneif , generally made
his-gifts.n such Umaimer that - no one
knewanything about them except hiMself
and.the grateful object of his kindnesS. It
inight• be,. too, that the widow was loth :to
have it understood by the neighbors.Ahat
she received: food from anyone ;,for there
is often an excusable pridel in people -of
her condition:which makes:them - shrink
from being considered an object Of "'char
ity" as they
.wmild from:. the - severest
pains. , On the night in question,Tim had
been that,Jones:mou/4 'seiid• Ahem a

it was usual for Lugare to giVe'his - School
a joyfully received dismission, Now and

for at the end of the hour Tien remained
with his faCe completely hidden, and his

had. leaned himself whenhofirst*ent to
his seat.' . • Lugare looked .at the boy oc
casionally with a scowl which'seeMed_ . to.
bode vengeance for his :sullenness. At;
length - the last class:had been .heard; and
the last lesson reeited,.and Lugare seated
himself behind his' desk on the 'platform;
with, his longest and.stoutest ratan before
him: 7it

was as still as- the grave. Not - a sound
was to be heard; except occasionally a
long drawn breath.

" Tito ikasleep, sir," at length said one
of the boys who.:sat near him. . _
Lugare, at this intelligence, allowed his
,features to relax from their expression of
savage anger into a-smile, but, that smile
looked more malignant, if possible, :than
his former scowls. It might be, that- he
felt !pleased at the horror depicted : on: the
faces of those around him ; or it might be
"that he was glowing With pleasure on the_
way in .which he intended - to wake the
poor little slumberer.
"Asleep ! are you, my • young gentle

; This proposition which elicits thO ap.

on the occasion of the s enthusiast% 'recep
tion which they gave him on his . retttru
from Congress. '
The Journal mentions the, following as
one of the objections urged against the
Col►scription Jaw : • -
That, it takes from the State authorities
the right to commission officers to com
mand the drafted men. •
And proceeds to answer it as -fol..
lows :-.,,'
"It is undeniably in the power .of 'the
President, as commander-in-chief, to'
make such disposition of the-drafled men
as he pleases. This power is necessarily -
inherent in his office. But it does not
follow that because be has _this 'power
that he will exercise it,'or beedlessly.take
from -the o.overners of the. States any, of
the peerogatives they now . have, and
whiehhive been hithertp exercises with
unquestioned prudence and patriotism—
Thispower,.like others,conferred by the
bill, will be used discreetly; and wedoubt
not to the entire satisfaction of the - State
authorities." , : ' - -.
As to the first point Made by the Jour
nal—the power ofthePreSident--the Con
stitution expresslyreserves " to the StateS
.respectively °the - appointment of - .the-,
officers." -
As to the secondpoint,that the liresi- -
dent nifty not exercise this sower - of; ap
`pointing officers—the Conscription la*,in '
no way recognizes the rights of .GoVeri3- ,
ors to-appoint the officers, butt On - the
a •
contrary provides that all persons -I draf
ted shairbe assigned by the ,President to
military duty insuclreorps, regiments or
other branches of the service ,as: the 'exi:,
geneies of the service mayrequire.
President is placed in a strait: be
ths Constitution and the--Conscrip
tion act.. The first gives to the States the
appointment of officers—the last. evident- - '
ly contemplates taking that power ; from.
the States and assigning the- nip, by di-,

Of course, if the States, or the cities

the Conscription is avail end. If the old
mode of appointing officers is maintained, -
