THE EDUCATIONAL TEST
There is a stirring of the waters in England,
as regards Education. It is admitted there,
that the working-classes, to whom instruction
is so necessary, do not, because they cannot,
receive it. What manner of education can
be given to children who are drawn away
from school, by the demands for agricultural
and manufacturing labor, at the early age of
ten or twelve years? It is contended, by po
litical economists across the water, that manu
factures stand in the way of educatiori—that
a great manufacturing system and a highly
educated people cannot exist together--that
England cannot undersell all other nations and
command all markets by means of cheap
labor, and yet educate her people sufficiently—
in a word, that the education must ho improved
only within the limits of England's commer
On the other hand, there is no doubtvithat,
in the groat manufacturing districts of York
shire,and Lancashire, (woollen and cotton,)
the constant improvements in' machinery, are
increasing, throwing woman and children out
of employMent, and' that they will aeon libe
rate two or three more years of the child for
the purposes or education. In other words,
that as the demand for javenilo labor decreases,
the child may remain at school until the ago of
thirteen or fourteen, instead of being drawn
away, to earn some small wages, at ten or
A child who leaves school at the ago of ten
to twelve does not receive what can be fairly
called education. He but receives a prelimi
nary to it—a koy to knowledge, as it were.
Being taught to read and write is as much as a
child of ten or twelve can arrive at. Reading
and writing are not so much knowledge as the
means by which knowledge is to be obtained.
These means, in fact, may chiefly be estimated
as valuable not for themselves but because
they enable youth to proceed onward into
education. Ho is placed thus at the portals
of the great treasure-house.of knowledge—to
pass forward if he have ability, perseverance,
and ambition, and gather mental riches from
the whole garnered stock of the ideas of the
So in England, not so with us. We really
give education, not the mere basis of it.
Every child in this State, for example, has
the opportunity of being educated sufficiently
welt for the general purpose's of life—so well
educated, in fact, that, no ratter how lowly
his original condition in life, his capacity is
cultured sufficiently for all ordinary purposes;
ho is qualified for almost any position to
which lie pleases to aspire ; and, in that po
sition, be it even the highest, his conduct and
bisi manners will not be beneath the station
he has arrived at. But then, the children of
Pennsylvania are not drawn from school, to
work in the cotton mills or woollen factories,
at the ago of ten or twelve.
For such an education as we do thus sup
ply, liberal provision is made; well-qualified
to echos are selected ; the profession of teach
in g is respected ; and the ablest minds of the
country are induced to throw themselves into
composing books of instruction. Our ele
mentary school-books are the best in the
world, and the inducement to make them the
hoist is this—the demand is necessarily so
groat, among a people all of whom look on•
etucation as almost as necessary as food and
clothing, that a successful school-book is an
income for life.
Proth the causes we have assigned, the
poor in England must mainly rely on self
-rniftifinkrft hits beat siftedvertia
that they may bo'assistod in this, and libraries
to use, lectures to listen to, rooms to study in,
aro arising in most of the cities and towns of
England. Public examinations, with the dis
tribution of medals to the most deserving, are
stimuli of no ordinary power and utility. The
most recent idea, on the part of those who
desire to extend education, to give such a
premium to intellectual culture as will add
prudential to ambitions motives.
The suggestion is to open the Excise, Cus
toms and Post Office to all qualified persons,
and offer all the subordinate posts irpthese de
partments for competition. As far back as
"within the memory of the oldest inhabitant,"
(contemporary, no doubt, with the benevolent
quack physician who advertises that his sands
of life have nearly run out), these offices have
been reserved to reward, by providing for, the
constituents of such members of Parliament
as vote with the Government. No doubt Lord
PALMERBTON and his colleagues would greatly
miss these means of agreeably helping and
obliging their friends—but the public would
gain, and we suspect that a higher set of of
ficials would ultimately bo obtained.
The proposition is to distribute the offices
among those of all classes who have most suc
cessfully passed through the ordeal of public
examination. There are, on the whole, 12,018
,arch offices, (of from $260 to $4OO a year,)
supplying nearly 800 annual vacancies, besides
a higher set of appointments, of from $3OO to
$6OO a year, producing annually 300 vacancies,
which could be thrown open to the public.
The number of prizes is very largo, and the
quantity of emulation it would create very
considerable, as a great many more persons
than those who won the prize would have their
energies stimulated in the contention for it.
Let it be remembered, too, that small as the
above incomes may appear, two advantages
aro connected with them—first, that the Eng-
ish Government appointments are psi-maned,
nvariably held during tho good conduct of the
official and, secondly, that, except in the
highest (and politically removable) situations,
there is an annual increase of salary and au
ascending scale of promotion, arising chiefly
out of seniority, which may ultimately place
the lad who enters the office on $250, in the
receipt of $5,000 a year. This is a powerful
stimulus to self-education.
As a test for fitness for office, the mode of
publicly ascertaining a candidate's fitness is
excellent, and, it must be confessed, is vastly
superior to the method so largely in practice
among ourselves, of estimating not the' fit
ness of the man for the office, but the fitness
of the office for the man. We look through
party-spectacles, and too often estimate a can-
didate for office chiefly by his politics. If, as
indeed appears likely to happen, the bulk of
official situations in England be thrown open
to public competition, with merit and character
as the only qualifications, John Bull, It Is
clear, will steal a march upon us, very greatly
to his own credit and advantage.
English Compliment to an American.
On the occasion of Mr. J. E. CRosKEY re
tiring from the American Consulate at South
ampton, in which he has hems succeeded by
Mr. W. THOMPSON, the merchants and trades
men of that town (we learn from the London
Time,') aro about to present him with a testi
monial in appreciation of the services ho has
rendered to the shipping interests of the port
front time to time, during the number of years
he has acted as Consul. An influential cons
mitt9o has been formed, with the mayor of the
borough as chairman, the town-clerk as trea
surer, and one of the borough ;justices as se
cretary. The Time, adds : "Apart from the
personal compliment intended, this presenta
tion possesses an interest as forming another of
the numerous manifestations of international
friendship and goodwill existing on the part of
this country and the United States." Thie
compliment has been well earned, for Mr.
CIIONCEY, while performing his responsible
duties as American Consul at Southampton,
had the good fortune to conciliate the favora
jdo opinion of all classes, whether English or
:foreigners, with whom ho was brought into
communication. In his own person, this cour
teous and active gentleman was a sort of con
necting link between Americans and English
men. lie strictly performed his duty, and,
while doing so, won the favor, as an impartial
and lonest man, of all. The Testimonial, we
doubt not, will represent the liberality of Ur.

THE BOSTON POST ON KANSAS.
From the Boston Post, of Novombet 214 f s
we take the following striking view of the
•, , ,
present aspect of affairs in Kansas: • -, ji .
KANSAS AND HER CONSTIITTION, Th e e 01;4
and doctrine of tho able article we printed yot , e!l
day from the Albany Argus on the Kansas VINO
tion, would seem to onineide with the avowod pup
pose of the national party as to Kansas, ivate4
elected President Buchanan. This was, in a *rota.'
that the bona fide settlers of this Territory ShOultl
be protected in the exercise of the same rights,. Ai
to the making of their State Constitution whiat
the citizens of other States havo enioyett
point of the article, to which we desire to,e
attention, is, that Congress should not be , ' 1
an instrument to force a Constitutron ontt4
untoilltng people; but should have eliar gvp,
dear, that any Constitution it endows rttle Op
validity of law has their sanction. . ~,,,
This question, as to Kansas, seems likely to 's:
an important one, according to our present ksio .
ledge of the doings of the Kansas Convention wig"
was cailod to frame a Constitution: This
seems to haver resolved to submit only the sltz!io
Maus* to the people of Kamm for their aptror A
and to present the other portion of the Constitp,
to Congress without such submission to the no el
and hence Congress will be without evidenee
such a Constitution reflects the will of the may) .
Governor Wiser, in a letter just published, bat
discriminating view of this great point. Ile, saw
" Tho true doctrine is, that the powers rt e s doff.
gated by the people arc reserved to them. T
way p,rant such a power to the Convention; bp ,f
not grunted, it is rest, red that a Constlttati‘
formed and proposed by a Convention, which ,4 i
a representative body, shall be submitted to -
people, who alone are sovereign. The Coavink
lion to form a Constitution is not sovoreigket
supremo. The sot of making a State le !holt' • 'I.
AO of sovereign power, and is the act of bum Ay.
next highest to that of Deity, in making
. u,• , g
of any sort. The act is no less Chase to e'roo ~
toversitinty itself As a Democratic Repalgie '
then, I would never delegate conventional pe f
to any body of agents to create a State, wtt .
requiring them to submit the act to their ii,
pals, the people. In 1776, an unauthorized ..•
of patriots assembled at Williamsburg, oonst
themselves a Convention, and formed and ,
claimed a Constitution for Virginia, without, =.
witting it to the votes of the colonists. NAT '
lotion began in that way. There was no time .
no opportunity to poll votes, in a moment of ri? , 7
lion, under the domination of British acme.'? , ,
Tho case of Virginia in 1776, cited by Gov, r
Wise, was a most remarkable one. This wan t _
first Constitution for a State ever framed; mitt IA
not strange that the mode should have beetide 9-,
tive. The great founder of the Democratic ,
Jefferson, always spoke of this Constitution ad*
ing en essential element—the sanction and a
rity of (ho expressed will of the majority. Atli
are his words,las to this first of Constitutions, wfil
ton in 1824: . .„
. . . • .„ .
" To our Convention no special authority had Vein
delegated by the people to form a permanenttaii
stitution, over which their summon, in logielti w
should have no power of alteration. They 'ad'
been elected for the ordinary purposes of le Pt.
tion only, and at a time when the establishing of
a now Government had c ot been proposed o CM
tomplated. Although, therefore, they gave Os
act the title of a Constitution, yet it could ; ,,gto
more than an act of legislation, subjeot, ae eit
other acts were, to atleration by theist,' Ole..
emote. It has heen said, indeed, that I.s4':eie
quiescence of the people has supplied thO whip" of
original power. But it is a dangerous leiWto
say to them, "whenever your funotionarles tiger,
ciso unlawful authority over you, if you did pot
go into actual resistance, it will be doomed 00,
°scene° and conformaron. Besides, no authority'
has yet decided whether the resistance iscullf-be
instantaneous; when the right to resist coseetWer
whether it has yet ceased. Of the twoitffiltr,
States now organized, twenty-three have dsitip
proved our doctrine and example, antr, Or,
deemed the formal authority of their pa ett
necessary foundation fur their Condit it."'
Virginia has also twice Rated 00 6 CarnAl I.lOn •
since 1821, once in MO, and again In 1850.501 ad
in both instances, the Constitution framed, th.l. a.
Convention was submitted to the people ; evOi - as
Governor IVise says, " to the new voters itateil
ho the new form (*fore itself was adopted," atad
dorernor Wise weft remarks : " That thiCp6efile

no other conditionis imposed by the Yeleeirat;
saltation on a State, in order to be admitted into
this Union, except that its Constitution shall be
republican ; and that the imposition of any other
by Congress would not only be in violation of the
Constitution, but in direct conflict with the princi
ple on which our political system rests."
* Ik * The submission point is so worded that
the Constitution, excepting on the one point of
slavery, is not submitted at all to the people. And
if Congress gives validity to such a political
sovereignty as this will be, according to the sche•
dole, it will impose this Constitution on Kansan
until 15151, and then there can he no alteration
except by a two-thirds vote of the Legislature !
Is not Governor Wise entirely right in his remark
that, if Congress should aid and abet a Convention
in doing this, it would be Intorvoning against non
intervention ? Is he not right, too, in the position,
that a constitutional form ought not to be Imposed
on the people of Kansas? And that their soya
reigq power, as a Ofate, ought not to ho snatched
away from them even for a moment?

paper or 1V laconsin) of 201.1) November.)
In this number of the "News" we print the
" schedule " which has been Attached to the Kan
sas Constitution. It is a remarkable document.
By it we are enabled to infer the character of the
Constitution itself—which its framers do cot eon
descend to submit to a vote of the people. This
schedule, our readers will understand, is necessa
ry, if the Constitution is to be adopted, for without
it no government could, in regular form, be or
We do not lay this document before our readers,
believing that it will ever effect anything, one
way or another, but simply to post. them in cur•
rent events; for, as the people of Kansas ore not,
by the Convention which drafted the proposed
Constitution, allowed to say whether tbsy will
adopt or reject it, it is not to be for a moment sup
posed that Conjreee will accept it, and form upon
Kansas a Constitution which her people devise.
It will be observed that this "schedule"de
clares slavery to exist in Kansas, and assumes to
take away from the people the power to abolish it!
The Constitution also, independently of Melange
that it is proposed to submit to the people, would fix
slavery upon the Territory. We will not to-day
treat this subject atlength. Indeed, our vitas have
already been sufficiently indicated. 'We will say,
however, that Cowen cannot accept this Manta
tion without repudiating the principles andpledges
of the Democratic party for the lroWithree years--
without being the instruments for consuatmating
a great outrage upon the people of Kettles, and
upon the mon who stand pledged to the funditmental
doctrine that " Tire PEOPLE SHALL RULE. „
On the aide of the PEOPLE of Kansas, agoinst the
framers of the proposed Constitution, is tie Presi
dent and his Cabinet, the entire Democratic press
of the North, and a respectable share of tie South

Of Harper for December, commenting the
sixteenth volume, we have received two copies
—one from Parry & McMillan and the other
from T. B. Peterson, who continues to sell it
at fifteen cents a number. It opens admirably,
and seasonably, too, with a Christmas Garland
of American Poems, consisting of cipico ex
tracts beautifully illustrated by the firit artists.
Among these are sundry established favorites,
such as Simms's "Blessings on Children ;"
0. W. Holmes's " On Lending a Punch-Bowl;"
Whittier's "Maud Miller ;" Bryantls "Song
of Marion's Men," and a fragment on Connec
tient, by Halleck. These specimesa give a
favorable impression of Harper'a fotthcomtng
gift-book, " The Poets of the Nineteenth Cen
tury." An account of Madras, and some fur
ther portion of Abbott's French Revslutionary
history, arc also illustrated; and, btsides the
Maidens, is a series of sixteen sketches, (comic,
yet with a moral,) entitled " Insagindon versus
Reality." With the exception of an article on
"Cur Daughters," by the same Navy hand
which executes the didactics of this Maga
zine, almost every page has somcthirg good. A
great deal better even than this ii the com
mencement of is story, called "Jack of all
Trades," written expressly for Harper, by
Charles Rustle, the popular English novelist.
It opens well, and promises to exhibit its
author's ample knowledge of ever t . day life.
Hero, also, are the opening chapters of
Thackeray's new aerial " The Vi'ginians."
Precisely as we anticipated, a month ago, the
heroes of this story are the two Warringtons,
grandchildren of that Eamond, Wtose quasi
history Thackeray gave five years ago as a
romance. When the story °pone, !ferny, the
younger of those, is introduced its having
arrived in England, in 1756, 'with the
belief that his brother, Ge&ge, had
been killed by the Indians, in the pre
ceding year, for re he would gi out with
General Braddock, on that dresdful busi
ness to the Belle Rivitire," it looms—and
this is a defect in the story—the young elan
will turn lip, in duo come, alive if not merry.
Henry Warrington goes down to the family seat
of Castlewood, in Hampshire, whire he finds
(and we are introduced to) a family party,
among whom rather prominently 'figures the
Baroness Bernstein—well known t6the readers
of "Esmond," as the free-and-easy coquette
Beatrix. The narrative is in Thackeray's
quietest style, and reads pleasantly, though
much of it is devoted to a sort of sum
mary of the leading events in "Esmond."
Here, we think, is a great defect. This intro
ducing old figures on the new canvas, (a favor
ite practice with theauthor,) necessitates one of
two thins—either that you hare read and re.
membered tc Esmond," or that you must read it
to' learn the ibmily antecedents of the family
paity who are to figure in tt The Virginians."
There is some good writing hero, however,
and here, as a specimen of word-painting, is a
tiewitiful passage which, no doubt, will
speedily bo• illustrated, in water colors and
oils, by a score of artists: '
"With a boating heart Harry 'Warrington
walked from the inn toward the house where bis
grandaire's youth bad boon passed. The little
village-green of Castlewood slopes down toward
the river, which is spanned by an old bridge of a
Anglo - broad arch, and from this the ground rises
gradually' toward the house, gray with many
gables and buttresses, and backed by a darkling
weed. An old man sat at the wicket, on a stone
bench, in front of the great arched entrance to
'the house, over which the earl's hatehment was

Immediately above the ancient sentry at the gate

mourning, and the girls, when they came out had
As might have boon anticipated, Mr.
Thackeray has fallen into sundry local blun
ders; speaks of Madam Esmond (who
'premises, In her way, to be quite a character) as
having bad words and a S evon a scuffle or two, as
we gather from her notes, at tho Governor's as
aemblies at Jamestown"—but Williamsburg,
not Jamestown, was the seat of the Govern
ment and the residence of the Governor for
many years before and after the alleged
,datei of :these acullies. .Again, Castlewood,
Maklartilr tanond'a estato, ,is mentioned
its'' being "in Westmoreland county, in
Virginia." She is represented, about the
year 1751, as consulting with "her young
friend and neighbor, Mr. Washington, of
Mount Vernon "—though, if George Wash
ington be meant, he was only nineteen years
,Old it the time; and Mount Vernon must have
been seventy to eighty miles distant from
Easllowood, which circumstances make "Mr.
Washington" ilirtoo yonng to be 'consulted on
important business by such a self-sufficient
woman as Madame Esmond, and far too distant
to be considered by her. Highness as a neigh

COMMERCIAL CRISIS IN EUROPE.
[riton. MVO ItECZIVISD BY TNA ATLAYrre" AT
PARIS, Monday, November o.—The intelligence
from London, of the elevation of the.bank rate of
discount to 10 per cent., and the heavy failure at
Glasgow, has naturally increased tho uneasiness
here; for it is felt that the Bank of France can no
longer dolly raising its discount at least 1 per
tent., and that Government will be compelled to
adopt some atringdut measure. The state of
French finance is not, however, of a character to
justify the gloomy apprehensions which seem to
prevail in commercial circles. The three per sent.
,which last month was 60 50, is now quoted
at 67, whilelthe specie reserve of the Bank of
France is 200,000,000, against 150,000,000 at the
corresponding period of last year. Fresh advice'
from the United States are awaited here with
anxiety, and India is completely forgotten.
In Paris, on Tuesday the 10th, the funds closed
at 60 85 to 67 francs.

remedies for the monetary crisis: Firstly, To de

to reduce the bank rate of discount to six per cent.

A circular was addressed yesterday, (Nov. 10.)
by the manager of the Western Bank of Scotland
to the various agents of that establishment, noti
fying its stoppage. and explaining the circum
stances which led to the disaster. It is admitted,
that for some years past, under the late manager,
a system of overtrading has been carried on
through the facilities afforded by the system of re
discounting. Reckless credits were given to cus
tomers in Glasgow, and a correspondent In New
York was allowed to make advances on securities,
and to draw bills on the bank. Lately, on an in
vestigation being instituted into some of the
largest advance accounts, it was found that the
houses to which they bad been made wore utterly
insolvent, and that a large loss to the bank Me
inevitable. The debtors went into bankruptcy,
the American pause cameo on at the oasis time, de
posits began to be withdrawn, and. finally, when
the hour of pressure arrived the usual re
sult leas witnessed, and the firms in Lon
don who bad hitherto promoted the financial
system of the concern, suddenly found it
expedient to discontinue the re-discounts on
which it had relied. Application for assistance was
then made to the Bank of Scotland. The Bank of
Scotland consulted the other Edinburgh banks,
and the Union Bank of Scotland, who declined
granting any aid until an appeal had boon made
to the Bank of England. The Bank of 'England,
of course, refused to interfere. The Scotch hanks
then offered .£boo,ooo, but on condition that a
winding up should take place. This was peremp
torily resisted, and the £.590,000 was ultimately
Iranted without condition. During the delay,
however, many of the customers of the hunk had
begun to withdraw their deposits, and an applica
tion for further assistanee was soon found neces
sary. This mot with a decided negative, and the
stoppage accordingly took place. The directors do
not give up all hope of the possibility of a resump
tion, and a general meeting is to be held in tilas
gow at an early day. Meanwhile, arrangements
are to ho attempted for the retirement of the note
circulation, and if puNsibie of small deposits.

THE AMERICAN PANIC
[From the London Times, Nor. 11 )
Our Transatlantic neighbors take the convulsion
of their money market with their accustomed
coolness. Their trade is, for the time, indeed. al
most dead Could peoplo, upon the failure of a
circulating medium, fall back immediately upon
the original principle of commerce—exchange in
kind—this need not be the result; for why should

people cannot fall hack at once from an artifi

former is the ecsbanon of exchange ; it is tanta

the railway concludes to piths its dividends

This coolness is, whop we es - amino it, the result
of a constant atmosphere of risk, in which the
American tradesmen, even in quiet times, lives.
Ills ordinary system is pitched to a higher point in
the sealo of risk than that of the European is.
This is ono of the remarkable disclosures in which
tho present panic has resulted; it has brought this
fact—familiar enough to the %sorb' of trade and
the well-informed world—prominently forward,
and put it before tho oyo of the whole public; so

ferent States comes in to make a factitious and
arbitrary difference, even when there is none on
really commercial grounds. The shops and hotels
of St. Louis rejected the notes of Illinois—even
the cab drivers and omnibus men would not . touch
them—at the late State cattle fair. "Irby? The
notes were based en the came stook, funds, and
deist of their respective States, and the Missouri
stock was every bit as good as Illinois Meek. The
reason was simple State rivalry. There was bad
footles between the two States. The consequence
was that nobody in Illinois would pay the oomph--
meat to Missouri which is implied in that trust
i n Missourian stock, which trust in Missourian
stock is implied in taking bitwoertati meta Or,
what is the same thing, everybody in Illinois
thought that everybody else would look at Mime
rian notes In this light, end therefore nobody would
incommode hinmelf by taking what be thought his
neighbor would trot acknowledge. A general idea
is the same as a renlltyr4 such cease.
Now, in al/falai° of thingsqg course, the mono
polist erompanies take the law into their own hand,
amid reject every thing but bullion. They do this,
because they can do lt-ebecause they can compel
a public, unable to do without them; to submit to
their own terms; though thil is ilemetitnes tried
without success, and the Miasisetppi Steam Qom=
pony a ft er its announcement thet it Would only
'take curreeey," obtained no cargoes. But the
claim is sueeteisful in some cased. First of all,
the Federal Government insists upon specie,
and will not touch a single note of any bank in
the United States. This excites the wrath of
the high-smiled Amesicatellnancier, who looks upon
this Government rule as an unfair, moan policy—
the view that a schoolboy would take of an ex
treme nod ungenerous pressure of the rules
of the ,game. This government clabn, which I
simply amounts to a claim for the exact sum,
and no more or lees than what is owing
to it, is etigtnatised as " the excess of cynic
ism." The popular feeling in America
r oots with
the paper circulation, and jeslouslf watches all ate
tempts to bring it into diffioulties or to charge it
with its extreme resporeabillties. It him bred a
set of conventional rules, a sort of code of honor,
in connection with the paper system. If these
rules of the game are violated, the sneak and des-
tard who wante to have money for his notes is
rightly " served out." The "aesorter," which is the
name of a person who connote in one State the
notes of another State, and sends back these tra
vellers that have wandered to a fortunate distance
from their responsible source home again: the
"snorter" is regarded in America rather as a
a geldeweater would be here. He is looked
upon as playing unfair tricks with the cir
culating medium. An agent with a carpet-bag
full of these exiles found on his arrival an in
dignant crowd, summoned by a hostile telegraph,
swishing him, and very wisely returned with bin
carpet-bag unopened, and his own person not tarred
and feathered, as it would certainly have been had
he attempted a visit on the bank. When once a
note has gone abroad it is oorsidered en exile for
life—not an unhappy. but a blissful emigrant Into
a region of perpetual freedom and joy—the trim
negative paradise ef the bank-note, a state of
transcendent annihilation—total disconnection with
payment. The American bank, on dismissing its
.£lO note, sends it away with the paternal blessing
of the Welsh father : "My lad, never let me see
your face again;" but does not accompany Its
blessing with the traditional lialf-crown which is
popularly appended to the Welsh one.
It Is easy to see how such a circulating medium
must affect trade. Government and the great mo
nopolists can insure specie, but the ordinary trades
man depends on a fluctuating, slippery medium, of
which he never can know the exact value, even
when substantially safe, and which be is never
sure is safe. How is a tradesman to regulate his
profits under such circumstances? The whole is a
risk front beginning to end. And this atmosphere
of risk is the regular atmosphere of the Amerman
tradesman. No wonder that with such an educa
tion he takes the convulsions of his money-market
