A Valuable Endowment.
The extensive and valuable Library of our
late honored citizen, lion. C. L. Ward, has
been donated by his heirs to LaFayette College
Easton, Pa. This library is one of the must
valuable in the Slate, and its late owner gave
to it many years of his life—all the culture of
his liberal mind and excellent taste gathering
it together. It is a monument to the memory
of its late possessor, and' while we greatly re
gret its removal, yet it is a satisfaction to know
that it is to adorn the Shelves of an institution
th it stands so high as LaFayette College. We
shall miss is absence, as it has ever been open
,to the public, and its rare and quaint volumes
of almost 'forgotten lore," were the admiration
and boast of all lovers of literature. We have
lost in this bequest, what in all probability will
never again be secured to our town. It is to
be known at the College as the "Ward Collec
lion," a name synonymous with classical
knowledge, fine literary taste and unprecedent
ed philanthopy, and everything that personified
an old time gentleman and scholar. Such gen
erosity as this, coming as it does from the chid
dren of tne late C. L. Wanl,reflects credit upon
themselves and honors the memory of their
fat her. —Bradford A rgos.

Not that I agree with it in polities, for I am a

consider it a paper worthy id perusal, by any

There are many things which should interest
the people of this country, and particularly of
this cold northern climate wherein I am loca

wish to go to 1.40 pity of Watertown from
Binghamton, to be sure fuel go by the Utica

of force and energy, whodo not allow snow to
impede their trains any liinger than it requires
A heavy force of men and steam power to re
move it. The mercury quite otter, tails to 35
degrees below zero. I have been informed by
some friend from Susquehanna county that
snow is only lour or live incites deep there.—

A Betting Law Suit
MILFORD, Ps.,February 3.—A law suit grow
ing out of a bet made during the Buchannan-
Fremont presidential campaign, has been
brought in Pike county by one of the parties to
the bet and will come up in an early session of
the county court. Major Colvin L. Seymour,
being confident that his canclidate,Fremont,was
to be the winning man, offered to bet several
hundred acres of land he owned in Shamokin
township against an equal number of acres up
on that rtssult. Abraham Weettall, ademocrut,
took up the offer, and the two made out the
deeds of their respective properties and placed
them In the hands of Daniel M Van Anken,the
district attorney of the county. Buchannan
being elected Van Aitken gave Westfall the
deed for Mr. Seymour's property, accor(ling to
the agreement Since that time the whole sec
tion of country around the tract has become
celebrated for its quarries of blue stone, several
large co:is - mations operating at different points
between Port Jervis and Shobola. The tract
is now very valuable, although it was original
ly purchased at a tax sale for $7. It is at pres
ent in tiossession of Mr. G. P. Heller, one of
the associate judges of the pike county court,
and rival companies are trying to get the land,
large prices being offered for it. Mr. Seymour,
claiming ttilitt the whole transaction between
himself and Mr. Westfall was illegal, betting on
elections being against the laws of Pennsylva
nia, and that no title ever passed front him to
Mr. Westfall, brings suit to recover the land.—
As $15,000 or s2o,ooo'are involved in thatresult
it is awaited with great interest. The suit will
be on the (slender of the May term.

Taxation for &Awl Purposes.
Professor Wickersham, superintendent of
common schools, takes issue with Judge Elwell
who in a case before him decided that ten mills
was the maximum tax which could he imposed
for school purposes. As the subject interests a
large number of people we append the views of
the state superintendent : •
1. The amount of state and county tax now
authorized to be assessed is thirteen mills on the
dollar, although real estate is exempt from a
portion of this tax. It is 'exceedingly doubtful
(section 28, act of May, 1854, P. L., 923,)wheth
er a board of school directors can levy a tax of
one amount upon one kind of property, and a
tax of another amount upon another kind of
property—ten mills on real estate and thirteen
mills on personal property'. They are required
to "determine the amount of school tax which
shall be levied in their district ;" that is, all the
property of the district. Besides, the amount
so determined is not only to be levied on "all
objects, persons or property made taxable," but
on all "to be made taxable," for state and coun
ty purposes, and real estate may be made tax
able for state purposes at any time. It certain
ly never was meant that all the irregularities
and inequalities of state and county taxation
fear school purposes ; and, if they should be
made to do so, the levying and collecting of
school taxes would be practically almost itd
2. The act of May, 1854, P. L., 623, compels
hoards of school directors to levy such taxes as
shall,wittr the money received from other sour
'Aie sufficient and necessary to keep the
schools of the 'district open not less than four
nor more than ten months in the year." The
penalty of non-performance of this duty Is loss
of state appropriation. The act of Apr 11,1866,
P. L„ 62. The minimum school term is now
five months ; but a district that is able to keep
its school open only four months with the max
imum tax allowed by law,is not subject to the
penalty inflicted in other cases. Tho law, how
ever, positively enjoins that every school dis
triCt shall keep its school open four months in
the year, and That every one that can do so
with the maximum tax allowed to be levied
must extend the length of term to five months,
or loose its state appropriation. A board of
school directors, too, neglecting this duty can
be removed from office. See act of May, 1834,
P L., 419. Now, in 186 d, there were hundreds
of school disc ices in the state utterly unable to
keep their schools open four months in the
year with a less school tai than thirteen mills
on the dollar ; there are as many unable to do
so to day. Can we suppose that the legislature
in taking the tax from real estam meant to cut
these poorest of our schools off from all state
aid, or to subject the members of their boards
of directors to the disgrace of removal from
otllex ? Do wise men commit the dolly of re
quiring a thing to be doe° under heavy penal
ties and then take away the means of doing
it ? If Judge Elwell's decision is to stand is
true interpretation of the law, three hun
dred school districts, badly need It, will lose
their share of $1,000,000 now appropriated by
the sta'e for school purposes—lose it, too, not
because they have broken but because they
have obeyed the law.
3. The financial necessities of school districts
are not in any way naturally depended upon
or governed by the financial necessities of the
state or of the counties. To place them in this
position is to 42. ripple the whole work of public.
educe lion. Hence, we cannot suppose that a
sane mother would strangle her own child, or
a sane body of men notify their own enact
ments, the law makers in 1854 in legislation
on taxation for school purposes must have sim
ply meant to fix a positive minimum rate 01
school tax equal in amount to the state and
county taxes then authorized to be assessed.—
They certainly never could have designed to
weaken ur destroy their whole work by pro
viding that the school tax should go up and
down in response to the nps and downs ()Nile
state and county taxes.
What bus been stated above will enable school
boards to learn the position 9f 114 e department
on the mooted question concerning the maxi
mum amount of tax that may be levied for
school purposes. With all the light that can
be obtained upon the subject, 1 am still of the
opinion that it is legal for school boards to levy
and collect, if they see proper to do so, thir
teen mills on the dollar. An appeal has already
been token from Judgc Elwell'u 4eCtSkirt*d
the question will be decided by the supreme
)loved by the confusion 'that has been crew
led in so maw school distsricts, and the con
flict of opinion among judicial anthonties, the
legislature may remove the cause of the trou
ble by an eractment fixing positively the rate
of taxation for school purpostu. But, meantime,
school boards are advised as follows :
1. Those in judicial districts where decisions
have been given limiting the maximum tax
on real esta:e for school purposes to ten
mills on the dollar should make their tax levies
conk , rm to them, whatever may be the result
ing difficulties or disadvantages.
2. Those In Judicial districts where no such
decisions have been made should proceed with
the collectlm of the full amount of the tax
levied In excess of ten mills unless they meet
with persons who absolutely refuse to psy It.
3. In ease of such resistance to the payment
of a tax for school purpose: In excess of ten
mills, hoards of directors should seek the ad
vice of the judge or Judges of their own judic
ial districts. As public officers seeking light in
regard to the discharge of their duties this ad
vice will he everywhere freely and cheerfully
accorded to them. A, copy of this circular
placed in the !voids of the judges consulted
may save the purpose of giving information In
regard to the present status qf the litiefttlcla.

youngest daughter of P. H. and S. E. Tiffany,
aged 91 years, 6 months, and 17 days.
This is the first time death has invadta this
family circle and it falls heavily upon thud:—
Vine was a young lady of much promise. She
was naturally of a livery turn of mind and her
presence was hailed with satisfaction by all her
companions. Her lite was brief but long
enough to win the respect and love of all her
aNuaintanees. She possessed a kind and qen
ial disposition and it was her aim and delight
to make all her associates happy.' She felt sor
ry for the afflicted every where and sighed that
so much dissentinn and evil was in the world
and longed for the time to coma whoa sin
should be ended and sorrow unknown.
That time has come to her thus early but not
before she deserved It. Her death has cast a
shadow over her family, that nothing but their
trust in God's fatherly love could brighten. Her
funeral was attended at Brooklyn, Feb. Bth, by
a very large audience of relatives a..d sympa
thizing friends. A. 0. W.
