itizions OF FOREIGN WAR.
• A rumor was circulated yesterday that
'.- cable dispatches had been received by one
-4". or both of the diplomatic representatives of
France and Prussia, stating that the rela
• tions between these two powers were about
to be disturbed by war. The. French lega
tion here regards this rumor
not worthy of serious consideration, nor
has the Prussian Minister received any
information to that effect. There is nothing
whatever in the relations of the countries,
&Bier as known here, to justify such con
clusion, and there is authority for saying
that no agents for the French Government,
as published, have been positively engaged
in different parts of this country in pur
chasing horses and forage for shipment to
ORGANIZATION OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
Letters received at the Republican head
quarters show that the organization. of the
party fot the campaign will be much more
thorough than ever before. The number
of auxiliary organizatid l its of different kinds
i g is unprecedented, and with a large part of
them correspondence has • already been
begun. It is expected that in a majority
of the counties of the Northern States the
names ot.every Republican voter wilt be
registerea,npon the books of some organi
ration, aridthat the estimates of the proba
ble result will, therefore, be very close.
The COngressional Committee have been
sending out about.twenty-five thousand
documents per week, and from this time to
the close of the canvess they expect to aver
age from fifty to one hundred thousand
weekly. They have a new list readymbich
will be furnished upon application.

ST. Louis, Aug. 18 .—X - lotter datad Ells
worth, Kansas, on the 14th inst. says: On
MoUday, the 12th, a band of some two hun
dred Indians appeared on Spellman's
Creek, about sixteen miles northeast of
Ellsworth; arriving at the house of a Mr.
Shaw, they caught and beat him unmerci
fully and drove him away. The devils
then caught Mrs. Shaw and her sister, and
violated their persons. Some thirty or
more of them continued to abuse these
helpless women until long after they bad
become senseless, and then destroying the
property left them for dead. They then
proceeded to the residence of Mr. Smith
and beat him in the same manner, and
violated the person of his wife, leavir,g her
in a. very critical condition. It is feared
that the women subjected to these outrages
will not recover. They met and abused
several other citizens by beating, and after
destroying all within their reach they left
for the north. Those poor woman say that
for five or six hours they were subjected to
ill treatmont, and they show marks of the
most cruel usage made by being beaten in
the attempt to defend themselves. A de
tachment of twenty soldiers were sent after
the Indians from Fort Harker, accompa
nied by fifty' or sixty settlers. On Wed
nesday might they sent for relnforoements,
and on Thursday a full csampany, under
the command of Col. Bentine, went over.
The latest report was that Col. Bentine has
come on the Indians; who had some ten or'
fifteen women surrounded in a house, and
that he had driven the red skins away, but
whether he killed any of them or not was
not known. These are probably the same
Indians who have been murdering and
committing other outrages on Solomon

Alliance College is situated in Alliance,
Stark county, Ohio. Two years since Rev.
A. B. Way, with a few of his friends, con
ceived the idea of building a college, and
immediately the conception was carried
into execution, and the result is a splendid
structure suited to all the - - purposes of a
first class college. The building is justly
regarded, alike by architects and educators,
as one of the m ost convenient and complete
in the State. It is 100x102 feet, four stories,
with eight recitation rooms, each 33 feet
square. The Chapolis 3.5x63 feet; I.Aabora
tory, 33x20;. Audience Hall, 66x100, with a
beautifully frescoed ceiling. It will com
fortably seat twelve hundred persons.
There are a number of smaller rooths for
offices, reception rooms, &c. A large board
ing hall, exclusively for ladies, is in pro
cess of erection, designed to accommodate
one hundred boarders.- the grounds
are sufficiently spacious for out door
recreations; they are very tastefully
laid out, and beautifully ornamented with
trees and shrubs.; The entire cost of build
ings, grounds, Philosophical and Chemical
apparatus will reach one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars. One hundred thousand
has already been donated and 'applied, and
a large portion of the balance provided for.
This magnificent result is largely if not
wholly due to the Indefatigable efforts of

It is difficult to indulge in novelties in

fore, be adapted to the subject and systems
of education; if rational, must be almost as
varied as the tastes, capacities and employ
ments of men. Mania emphatically a crea
ture of Education, not to the destruction of
accountability, but education modifies re
sponsibility. Man left to himself is a bar
barian. The soul of man is in darkness
and speaks not in the fullness of its power
until enlightened by the rising sun of
knowledge, when the latent powers are
warmed into life and activity. There is no
limit to the growth of the soul. We may
educate plants, fruits and animals, but these
soon find a limit, but man is the subject of
unlimited progress. Under the band of
the skillful educator no bounds may be set
to human progress and happiness. • We bavo
plausible theories of the goodness and capac
ities of human natureand of man's power,
unaided, to rise In the scale of existence,
but without foreign aid man is a savage and
remains a - savage. as all history attests.
Man rises only by help from his fellows,
who, under God, may be able to lift him
front degradation. In this we havo the
philosophy of all our educational effort;
hence our mission to bear an humble part
in the work of human progress, and to this
end we to-day dedicate this building, a free
gift, of a generous Christian people. Edu
cation does ,not destroy native powers
nor give new ones, but modifies what we
already possess. Education makes the man.
Man uneducated is the creature of circum
stances drifting on the ocean of life without
chart or compass, the sport of the winds
and waves, and can never reach the 'harbor
of safety. Educated, he controls circum
stances making them subservient to his
will. Whether, therefore, our children
shall bo controlled or control the circum
stances of life to profit7—whether they
shall be imbruted and walkiw in the
mire, or, ennobled, soaring heavenward
in their aspirations depends largely on
their education. But wo need increased
educational facilities for self-preservation—
not only as individuals and families, but as
a -nation. The nation meat be educated.
Tho large influx of foreigners, daily aug
menting our population, thrown among us
with false notions of men, society. God and
religion, must be educated, or they will
use their newly acquired privileges to our
injury and overthrow. NVe. must control
this element of the body politic, or it will
control us, and the only remedy in our
hands is increased educational facilities.
The' - freedanen likewise must be educated,
thht they may be proof against the:designs
of artful and unscrupulous demagogues,
who already seek to control them forsel
fish ends, in opposition to the public good.
Education is the only means by which this
largo class of men can be conserved
for the good of the nation. We
must, by increased and increasing
light, develop their manhood and loyal
ty, and lift them above the plane of
traitors. The question of self-government
Is yet an experiment, and if we would
make it a success we must educate
the masses. As.every man,woman and child
of the nation la In a sense a citizen to per
petuate our liberties, wo must scatter
broadcast the needs of knowledge. The

we must precede the- MissiOnary of the
Cross, by the educational instrumentali-
ties; we must make the aristocracy of let
ters, as well as the nation's domain, if we
would realize the nation's hope. • We need
not only the education of all, but of each
in every department of his nature.
We need Physical Education: The mus
cles are as much the subjects' of educa
tion as the mind. This department has
been greatly neglected; indeed, we are just
awakening to its importance, and begin
ning to realize its necessity. A false The
ology has taught us, if not to despise, greatly
to neglect the body and to believe that
neither knowledge nor goodness can find a
lodgment in a fully formed physical 4nan,
It magnifies the soul at. the expense of the
body. In the judgment of many, in order
to be a saint it is necessary to be afflicted'
with some one of the numerous diseases to
which flesh has become_heir; and to be a
possessor of wisdom, we must needs have
- cultured the mind at the expense of the
body, until. our phystcal powers are im
paired and we are in "feeble health."
This • condition of our physical man be
comes a passport to educated Society,
and the extent of our knowledge is
measured by our physical feebleness. This
building has been constructed and these
ample grounds provided with sn eye to
physical education. The day is past when -
we shallbe taught either to desisr ne
lect the bysical man. The bodpy e
is o God' g s
master piece of mechanism. It is fearfully
and wonderfully made and when sanctified
becomes the temple of •the Holy Spirit. Man
has also I an intellectual nature subject of
education; to, this department, in common "
with our co-laborers we will direct our at
tention. Efforts are_teing made, we appre
hend, In the interests of Atheism to give
undue prominence to the physical sciences
to the neglect of ancient languages and
literature. The study of languages may
have had too great prominence in our
schools' yet we cannot but regard the pre
sent effort to limit education to the demon
strative sciences as a step unwarranted
and wholly in the service of a sensuous
and Atheistic philosophy. Harmonious in
tellectual culture, demands that attention
should be liirected to man himselfas well as
to external nature, and to study man, to
know ourselves, we must become familiar
with man in all ages; and this can only be
attained by the stnclyof the language and
literature of nations. This will lead us to
give in our course of instruction a plac'e to
ancient and modern languages. We seek
no extremes, indulge in no specialties,
have no pet theories to which we wish to
bend a course of study, but seek a normal
and harmonious iuteilectual development.
It is folly, however, to educate all alike—
to give in every 'ease prominence to the '
same studies. Men should be educated in
reference to their business in life. The ed
ucation of a farmer and a lawyer should be
very different in order that each may be
fitted for his future position and duties. '
We shall have regard, In our courses of
study to the purposed pursuits of life and
shall modify them to suit individual neces
sities. Here I desire to invite to. these
hallscook ladies.book h T were thought a e time was when Bible

lin reading and arithmetic were regarded as
good education, but the signs of the
times clearly indicate a more ample field
of labor for woman. We are aware of the
many theories—extravagant some of them
may be—in reference to the rights ,and
wrongs of woman. Without espousing or
condemning any of these, we wish to say
1 -that woman has a peculiar sphere and mis
sion in life to which her own native in
stincts will laid her, and to fit her for du
ties and responsibilities she must have
education such as she needs. We
upon her no restrictions; we prescribe, for
her no special course of study. She is now
the educator of the race as wife, -mother.
teacher, author and editor. She has worked
her way without special encouragement -
from any to high, plaCes in the walks of
literature and science, and it is not for us
to proscribe, to set bounds to her aspira.
tions. We invite her to these halls. There
ism course of study nor field of labor but
which should be opened to her choice.
I But we need more. The complex nature
of man is not exhausted by body and mind.
Man has a'spiritual, a higher nature, which
must be recognized in a complete course of
education. We must educate the mind,
riot as an end, but as an instrument. To
limit education to the mind Is to prepare an
instrument but fail to provide motive
nower for its use. This motive power is
found in an educated spirituality---o
relations - to God and Eternity are
matters Of chief importance In life, and
should have due attention. We speak of
no mere sectarian instruction in the tactics
of any religions party, but of the culture
of the soul in all its relations and depend
encies. This is a field of labor into which
the State dere not enter. In public schools
meet the children of the various conflicting ..,
creeds of Christendom—which necessarily
forbids the entrance of an open and un- . •
tramelled Bible—even our best colleges
have, no doubt, for good reasons largely
neglected the culture of the soul, so that it
is not an uncommon thing for young men
to return from Collegedepply imbued with
a pantheistic philosophy entirely banishing •
God from the mind, heart anti life. Intellect- .-
ual Education without a knowledge of God .
is a curse an d not a blessing. To educate the
mind, leaving our spiritual nature in ruins,'
is only giving talons to the eagle and claws
to the tiger. We have educated traitors and
villains of every grade, men - who possess
intellectual strength, with depraied hearts;
such edUcation is a curse. Whilst therefore
we •seek to educate the mind much, we
