then, .by sending Governor Senter as
United States Senator to Washington, he
becomes Governor by virtue of his
Speakeiship, and the Executive as well
as the Legislative branches or the gov

supremacy in the State, and the above is
likely to be their policy.

breaking up his plans for organizing a
McClellan ticket. While PErrox was
true to the Union, his son was forced into
the Confederate service, and was killed at
Mill Springs under Zollicoffer. In the
fact that a citizen with whom the rebel De

we can form a correct idea of the. actual
lack of cohesive sympathy among the ele

There will be thousands of hungry
Democrats demanding legislation and of
fleas. The soreheads among them wiU
soon multiply, and we shall soon have
the pleasure, within six mow he, of wit
nessing as great heart burnings among
the Democracy as we have suffered our
selves. There will be divisions between
the "old citizens" and the Irish; between
Democrats who would conduct publie af-
lairs honestly and•those who would pros
titute every thing je personal and parti
'san gain; between-those who would dis
franchise and oppress the ,blacks, and
DelnoCratE4 who would redeem their
pledges to do justice to them and elevate
them; between the narrow minded and
proscriptive and the liberal and progres
sive elements. There will be plenty of
bones of contention over which the 1/e
-mocracy will find themselves hating each
other, even more bitterly than they ever
bated the Radicals.
We predict that the people of Tennes
see will become so disgusted with two
years of corrupt Democratic rule, that in
1871 that party will be. voted out of
power by a larger majority than that with
which they go into power in October.
THE REPUBLICAN JRNSION
Political parties. like individuals, are
more accurately judged by their general
tendencies than by particular acts. Pa.
triarchs, prophets and apostles—phlloso
inters, jurists and statesmen—persons in
every department of human enterprise—
under stress of peculiar circumstances 9r
inducements do • things which are ..purely
exceptional to the whole bent and pur
pose of their lives. To judge them by
these, would be to fall into most serious
Nobody pretends that the Republican
party. Is immaculate; that it has made no
mistakes—and never confounded right
and wrong. Much less is it affirmed that
its leading men are all disinterested and
patriotic, constantly preferring the com
mon good to their own personal aggran
disement. Public men are just as liable
as those who restrict their efforts to pri.
rate projects, to be swayed by consider.
ations relatrig to their own advantages.
Ratably to numbers •there are as many
scamps in public employments as in
private pursuits. It is certainly desirable
to root them out wherever they appear,
and no reasonable pains' ought to be
spared to that end; but, practically, it
will be found, let the best possible be done,
hat the millenlum is not yet.
Judging the Republican partY' by its
general course, both in respect to princi
ple and conduct, impartial critics.. must
admit that it occupies a muelthigher level
than any other large party, that has ap
peared in this country, i, not in any
other.: It 'has consistently espoused ,the
cause of the oppressed and down-trodden;
it has labored to extend equal rights and
protection to all classes of the inhabitants;
it has resisted the demandsof passion and
prejudice; and has steadily evinced a dis-
Jposition, even at the largest sacrifices of
convenience, ease and enjoyment to have
exact and impartial justice meted out to
all men. It has not primarily sought its
own advancement, but has uniformly
stooped lowly, that they might rise
The mission of this party isnot fulfilled.
True, it has accomplished much. The
records of the Republic for the last few
years al'e crowded with the most wonder-
Ail events, and the &rope and import of
the while is for the development of liber
ty, the promotion of happiness,- and the
enlargement and preservation of popular
government: If there have been email
sions,, the criminal reaponsibiliti does
not lest upon its slioddr* but **litho
ithotldeire of those who' sought To - !lain ,
taro traditional inequalities and wrong,,
to institute new Ones, and to transform
a power designed for the amelioration of
the world into a gigantic engine of caste,
and cruelty and despotism.
However much has been done by the
Republican organization, in the direction
indicated, a vast deal more remains to be
accomplished; and this it must do or it
will not be done at all. Liberty has, in
deed, "been proclaimed throughout all
the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof."
In a nominal sense this liberty has been
secured ; that is, the shackles_ of
slavery have, been stricken off. Human
beings can no longer be made articles of
merchandise under the flag of the Union
and with the sanction and aid of tribunals
ordained to establish Justice and promote
the public- tranquility. But, as yet,
the degree of liberty actually attained by
the liberated Millions is, in many of its
aspects, rather negative than positive.
An individual or a class may, in the view
of abstract law, be endowed with all the
immunities of cititeriship, and still be in
a condition of intolerable hardship.
Aside from this special consideration,
there are broader ones, which even apply
to the whole population, touching closely
the welfare of all. It would be absurd
to deny that there are many persons in
the Democratic ranks of most estimable
character as men and citizene. How
they contrive to stay there may be a
mystery, but that they are there is a fact.'
Perhaps nothing illustrates the power of
habit more forcibly than the obstinacy
with which they preserve the connection.
If they are advanced to middle life, they
have seen their party abandon _all the
principles it once held sacred, discard all
the measures it once esteemed of the ut
most consequence to the national well
being and to individual enjoyment, and
embrace all the ideas and policies it for
merly repudiated as injurious and abomi
nable. Still they cling , to it as if their
very existence depended upon retaining
the identification. But, notwithstanding
the presence of this well-disposed minor
ity, the Democratic party is a reservoir
Into which about all that is most, putrid
and dangerous in the population of the
country flows in virtue of an irresistible
What remains therefore, unfulfilled, of
the mission of the Republican party is
first to consolidate what has already been
achieved. For it to allow the shadow
on the dial to go backward so much as
by one degree, would be an offense'
against all mankind. The evil effects of
the retrogression would instantly be felt
'throughout all civilized nations, and be
obliterated poly by the moat
persistent of exertions extending throligh
a long series of years.
While we write this we have no fears
of such a disaster. What has been
wrought out at infinite cost, will not be
idly sacrificed, but will ba zealously
prosecuted to the

American Institute of Instruction—An.
Waal Meeting in Portamontn, N. H.
(Correspondence of the Pittsburgh oagette.3
PORTSMOUTH, August, 1869.
This venerable institution, which has
regdlarly held its Conventions for forty
yearsi the oldest and best of the kind in
our country, having numbered among its
Officers and lecturers many of the best
frien& of learning and choicest scholars
of 'ortiland, has just closed a session of
three days in this city. The published
proceedings and lectures of this Inistitute
form valuable library for the teacher.
It halted a great influence in awakening
an interest in education and developing
the best methods of teaching. The vast,
change we everywhere see in this cause
is attributed in no small degree to this
organization. To it we owe'lhe first
normal school in this country, of itself
reward enough for the time and labor
given to it. Its Constitution has recently
been so amended as to admit ladies to
membership. The lectures, essays and
discussions have been interesting and in.
structive. In discussing - the question of
"Tub Supervision and Inspection of
Schdo)s," a wide difference 'of opinion
was seen, each speaker' evidently having
been governed in forming his Opinion by
the kindef supervision he had seen—in
some cases valuable, in other cases worth
less:•• Much feeling was exhibited in &-
ousting the relative value of high schools
The lecture of Prof. E. B. Morse of the
Peabody Institute. on the "Principles of
Clbsification in Zoolugi," commanded
the Closest attention of the = audience.
He stowed how the subject should be
prtsented to the minds of children. He

markably simple, and his faculty of
gaining the interest of children very
happy. lie stated that several leaders in
the Boston schools had carried on musical
exercise by the aid of musical instruments
without being able to sing a note. Prof.
Thompson of Worcester stated that a
lady sr bo was absolutely unable to sing a
note or carry her voice:' through one
measured degree, had, with theassistance
of Mr. Mason and a small instrument,
succeeded in making her pupils good
singers. This discussion and the facts
brought out were exceedingly inter.
The most interesting and important ad
dress of the Convention was by *of. C.
O. Thompson, of Worcester. who has
had great experience with the schools of
Europe, mainly on oral instruction. The
great object of the teacher is, be odd, to
excite thought, to communicate knowl
edd "set to work the inductive ma
CIM47. Of the Wadi" not to MI It
merely, by committing tb memory words
and rules. He world as lief have a
dumb man for teacher as one who relied
wholly on books. The most abstract, dif
ficult and repulsive sdbject may be made
interestingto youth by stirring their sym
pathies. The only text book on arithmetic
that was allowed in Saxon schools was a
collection of problems arranged in the
philosophical manner which ever charac
terizes the German mind.,The true par
. pose of education is frustrted if a teacher
is restricted to a text book. The warm
heart, the active mind and earnest purpose
of the living teacher are necessary to sue
cess. Now they do not learn what they
ought to learn and what is learned is of no
I use. He would not have a text book on
grammar inside a school room. He objected
' entirely to "cramming children with-text
book chat."- Every teacher of experience
knows well there is much truth 'in these
utterances. There are teachers who re
quire their pupils to commit verbatim
their lessons in history, or physiology, or
philosophy, or their rules to arithmetic,
watching, with book in hand all the time,
to.see if any word', however unimportant,
hi omitted, or by the good sense of the
pupil changed. We have, however,
teachers who would allow nearly any
rule to be given for the solution of aprob
lem, but the one in their books. The
mind of the pupil is not educated by this
process or the judgment strengthened,
only a disgust and loathing of all books
produced. If, as Bain contends, the
memory has only a certain capacityi then,
in this way, it will soon be filled with
words which, to the pupil, convey no
meaning. Principle's are not fixed; the
lemons are learned simply to be recited,
and then all forgotten. The method of
instruction advocated by Prof., Thomp
son, which is the European method,
would make it necessary for teachers
theniselves to know what they claim to
teach, and would, if adopted, in a pleas
ant manner, rapidly advance the pupil.
We are not prepared to say that all text
books should be removed from our
schools, but that they should be less de
pended on in education than they have
I been, that the instructor in teaching his
classes should' not follow the text, and
1 that moral instru..aon should be given.
Hardly less in interest and valde than
the lecture on oral instruction was the
lecture of Prof. Woodman of Dartmouth
College on drawing. Our limits will not
permit us to speak of this as we desire.
It was one of great ability. The itripotr
ance of this branch of education was
clearly shown,, and the• ignorance of
form, is this country, was severely com
mented on. - Americans have no opinions
of their own as,to 'form, bat are wholly
governed by others. Delicacy of touch

The accomplished scholar and veteran
teacher, 'George B. Emerson, pronounced
an eulogy on Kr. Sherwin, author of
some.valuable mathematical works, and
for very many years Principal of the
High School, Boston, expressing in the
strongest language he was able to use
his opinion, of his integrity and fitness
for the office of teacher.
/si the: evtning various addresses on
the subject of education were given in
the church:- Fcir those who remained an
excursion was arranged tor Friday. The
attendance was large, the. most of whom
were ladies. Many other aubjects'were
discussed and other lectures were given,
besides those I have spoken of. The
session was one of unusual interest.
How Democracy Remember' the So
In 1863, when Chambersburg was smo
king and the decisive lines were drawing
around Gettysburg, the Democratic party
of Tennsylvanis were in council at Har
risbufg. Many of the very men in ses
sion last month were there, and, under
the vary bayonets of the Confederate ar
my, they remembered the Union soldier
by advising compromise--wmpromise
'when the colors of rebellion were profa
ning the soil of the State.
In 1864 the Democracy met in National
Convention at Chicago. The fate of the
nation was in the balance. Sherman was
gone on hie brilliant but desperate march
to the sea. Thorns); was battling in ,front
of Nashville. Grant was struggling in
the Wilderness amid the graves and de
,./eats of successive campaigns.
mocracyi'met - and remembered the sol
diers—How ? They explicitly declared
the war, after three yaws of trial, to be
"a failure," and demanded that irnme
date efforts be made for, a cessation of
hostilities. Every plank, too, of this in
famous platform with one exception, was
a stab at the Administration which was
keeping the soldiers in the field. Is it
any wonder that this shameful assemblage
has passed into infamy and history as the
in ItiB6, wheikthe war was just over,
and the soldiers of Pennsylvania were
coming home, tired and wounded, with
their dead b ehind them, their business
and occupations gone, to commence, per
haps; a yet more desperate struggle for
livelihood, how were they welcomed by
the Democracy of Pennsylvania ? In
convention assembled, under the leader
ship of Judge Black, still an honored
name in his party, the Democracy of the
State deliberately and officially declared
the his'oty of the war to have been "debt,
slaughter and disgrace." That was only
the Demoted° remembrance of our
struggle aid sacrifice 1
These platforms and resolutions,which
make the blood of a soldier to leap and
pis chinks to tingle, are all yet in full
force and , vigor. T hey are art of'the
creed of a Democrat. They have never
been rescinded, repealed, or apologized
for. A vote for Packer and Pershing is
a specific endorsement of their very word.
This is whit D 4. °crude remembrance

modifies the re! stration of persons
"boarding at any hotel, tavern, sailors'
boarding house, o . restaurant," has un
dergone constructi i n by Judge Brewster,

will be learned tha the fact of a tavern
being in a boardin! house building does
not change the status of a boarder and
make his registry objectionable, provided
the business of tavern keeping be sepa
rate from the business of keeping boarders.

The Lycoming Gazette, the oldest Dem
ocratic paper in Northern Pennsylvania,
is not entirely satisfied with the proceed
ings of the late Democratic Convention.
In referring to them it says: "We live
in a progressive age and political issues
arise and are settled speedily. The great
civil war brought about many changes—
the status of one race of people was.
entirely changed by the arbitrament of
the sword—old political issues are now
dead and buried—to attempt to revive
them is the sheerest folly.
"The great trouble with the Democra
cy, and one of the principal causes of
their repeated defeats, is loading their
candidates down with old issues. This
ruined McClellan and Seymour. There
is no disguising this fact.
"In the nomination of Judge Packer
for Governor we would have preferred a

rake up old issues—but accepted the situ
