The London Times today has an edi
torial „on „,ttie article, in, the" Atlantic
Monthly, re.l3tosve, in relation to
Lord and! y Byron: The writer,
• after coma= g on: the character- and
position of Lord Byron, considers "Mrs.
~ Stowe's story a faithful reproduction of
Lady - Byron's statement to her
1 solicitors. The latter do not hesitate In
manifesting a desire to discredit,
but do not contradict the- story. 'lt is
"impossible that Mrs. Stowe understood
once and forgot afterward the substan
tial part of the statement, but it Is per
t .fectly•possible and probable that the wife
Was a victim of. delusion. •We can find
nothing incompatible with such a hypo
thesis: - Cht the contrary, the story unto
• tentially confirms' it. :We have vainly
searched to see what Lord Byron•said
and did to confirm the suspicions of
guilt, and only find vague expressions
that < tfie4 wife was.: :fully - convinced..
, The fact is startling, but not
5 •OA less so when we
_remember she
tirought• him insane. We cannot con
} Jo:Rare hqw the wife came to entertain
the suspicion, but can' easily understand
how come entertaining , it, brat imposed
onheivelf. and then on-Mrs. Ste.
" would only be What thousands of unhap
py wives have done before. To have
suspicions of exceptional enormity, this
quite accounts for the doubts of her hus
band's sanity and - he low opinion his own
confessions may have led her to form of
his mofedity." -
The. Pall Mall Gazette says on this sub
ject : "Whatever Tray be the reasons that
determined Mr. Wentworth and his sister
Us postpone the publication of Lady By
ron's papers, Mrs. Stowe cannot be such
a serious offender. 'Lithe grand children
seriously thought of printing them, the
solicitors. in their letter' recently pub
- fished, make no charge of inaccuracy,
but of incompleteness. Theinference is,
Mrs. Stowe'e etateMent is correct, but
thatmore remains to be told."
The Atersing /bat also has an article on
the question, wherein the writer says:
"As Lady • ByTOIL'S will committed her
papers to the care of trustees; under cer
tain conditions, and as lidre. Stowe was
not, her story is entirely gratuitous and
nuanthorized. .She has committed a
breach of - confidence reposed •in her.
and the offense; by her own showing,
toes not admit,of extension. There Was
no error of judgment in the matter.' L
• is for Mrs. Stowe to explain her motives.
It does not signify whether Mrs. Stowe
was ignorant of_ the terms of the will or
not; the violation of confidence, the out
rage on the dead, the disregard of the
feelluzz of the Lvirtg, arethe same. She
ought to know that the public conscience ,
cannot be so offended with impunity."
A correspondent in to-day's Times;
speaking of the ,thilamity in the cotton
trade, says it was owing to an increase
of consuming power at a time when the
raw material•was. eleereaeing. He - ar

Inauguration of the New Fifth Ward,
• Allegheny, Public - Smoot Houle.
At 7X o'clock on Thurirday evening a
laige assemblage of the parents and.chll.
dren of the Fifth ward, Allegheny, filled
to overflowing the, capacious andltorluin
of the exhibition hall, which is so fine a
fealore of the building. Several clergy.
men and other friends, of educatlon, to
gether with the Popular Quartette Clubof
Allegheny, were on the stand. The Rev .
Dr. J. B. Clark having consented t. pre
side, called the meeting to order and.
commenced the" exercises with prayer,
whereupon tie Hon. John E. Park, Pres;
ident of the Local Board of - Directors,
read the following
Under the act consolidating the bor
ough of Manchester with the city of 41-
legheny, approved 12th March, A. - D.
1867, and the subsequent division of the'
wards by ordinance of the City Councils,
the first board of . Directors was organ
ized. The ordinance erecting the Fifth
and Sixth wards provides that the bOr
ough of Manchester, together with a
portion of the First and. Second
wards, Allegheny, lying west of
Allegheny avenue. be 'thrown to.
gether, and the whole divided by a line
running west through the centre of Ham
ilton street and Locust avenue to the
Ohio river, the portion situate south of
that line to be designated as the Fifth,
and the portion on the north side of said
lino the Sixth ward. This division left
the principal school property in
the. Sixth ward, and consequently
the Filth ward without school
property. or school directore. To
remedy this evil. and in accordance
with, the instructions of this State Super
intendent, ono member of the Board
of Directors of the Borough of Manches
ter and Second ward, Allegheny, each
realding•within the limits Of the portions
of these districts to be detached and be
come part or the Fifth, were delegated
by the several Boards to take charge of
tae interests of the Fifth, ward school
matters. These gentlemen met on the
4th of October and 2nd of November,
A. D., 1867, and fully- organized the
first board by the appointment of four
gentlemen, residents of the ward, who
met from time to time, but did not feel
themselves authorized under the cir
cumstances in assuming the responsibil.l
icy of ;purchasing real ,estate and the
erection of necessary buildings; conse
quently nothing was accomplished until
the election and subsequent , organiza
tion of the board on the 20th of Jan
uary, 1868; 4
In September following school s' were
opened with '620 • children. These chit- .
dten were taught pertly hi the old Man
chester eetelusol building %-(now aban.
and to - the numb* titl2o by favor of the
Directors in the First and Second Wards
to ,which they formerly belonged. In
March, 1868, .eleven iota of ground,
area 2241 by 132 feet, were purchased
at •a cost of 1110,400. 'The ground was
broken on the seventh of May, 1868, and
the work on the- building has steadily
progressed towards completion.
The building is 134 by 68 feet, with a
center and two cress halls—stairways
from each ball. There are fourteen
school rooms, each 34 by 26 feet; height
of ceilings fourteen feet. The reception
and high school rooms are respectively
40 by 34 feet, with fourteen feet ceilings.
The auditorium is 68 by 36 feet, with a
gallery on either aide, and with a twenty-
two feet ceiling. ,
The rooms axe severally provided with
dressing and cloak apartment.
The whole building is heated by a low
pressure steam apparatus furnished by
Meagre . . Bourne & Bros.
There are tablets in each main hall, yizt,

The total cost of the building and fur

How far the Board has met the wishes
of the taxpayers of the ward is for them
to determine. Their endeavors have al
ways been to erect a building suitable
for all time to come and creditable to the
citizens ot the ward.

All which is respectfully submitted.
&so. E. PARKS, President.
Since the tablet was inscribed Messrs.
Crowtherr and Shea have withdrawn and
their, places taken-by Mr. D. L. Patter-,
son and Rai. D. I. K. Rine.
The. Chairman then introduced the
Rev. Mr: Moore, who made an eloquent
auctimpresenve exposition of the power
and value of Mental and moral an well
as of physical discipline and culture in
order to the highest and noblest devel
opment. He said no really great or de.
sirable eminence) can be attained by an
untrained or uneducated man or woman.
Some of the noblest-and mightiest intel
lects that have distinguished our race
have indeed sprang from obscure parent.
age, and have attained to ai- great emi
nence, not by Inheritance or from lin
eage, but either fn)m a thbrough training
by the masters in. the schools, or from
their own persistent and laborous eel:-
culture. Mr. Moore was followed by .
Rev. W. Mellyar, whose address was
replete with sound common sense, ap
propriate toy the occasion. He spoke of
the school building as surpasiing any
thing he hadever seen In permanence, ca
pacity-, and adaptation , and in these
respects illustrating the high state of ad
vanoement in all the appliances 'and fa
()Wiles far education at, the present day
as compared with twenty years ago. He
believed that such noble temples were
worth their whoie cost,' for their eleva
ting effect upon the oorionunity, and es
pecially urion •• the 'young, who shall be -
taught in them. The Rev. Speaker closed
by an earnest plea for moral' as , well
as mental culture in t irese schools.
The Rev. Dr. ,A. A. K. ~Bell .Atititi enter-
Mined the atediekce with some-amusing

to-day, and then with his accustbmed
earnestness enlarged' on the value and
significance of, the means now at work
for the diffusion of lcnowledge among
the people. _
A. T. Douthett, Esq., the County
School Superintendent, was 'the-peat
sneaker. Mr. Douthett's remarks were
laudatory, and justly-e% of the sagacity
of the local Board and thepeople of the
ward, in providing ad nobles building
with every needful appurtenance, 'and so
admirable in plan and arrangement, and
large enough tortthe future as well as the
present. - He also certified to the good - '
Judgment bf the Directors in the cholas'
of Principal, and the assistant Teachers.
The Betakes closed with an eloquent
commentary on the value of a good ed
ucation and of good school-houses
and good teachers as essential means to
that ea.
The next speaker Was a kentlethan •
from the First ward.-we beliesp. Our re-.
porter being temporarily off .duty,. we
ave no notes of his speech. We 'doubt
irhetber any more reference is due to
it. The speaker himself, we know, is , of
that opinion.
Prolessor I), L. Eaton =was the laat
speaker. He _discussed the - subject of
schools and education briefly, but; w#ll
marked ability, as he always does. .
We have said that the Allegheny Qciar
tette Club was on the stand. They
contributed largely to enliven andplease •
the audience by rendering in their ' , usual
capital style. during the Intervals of
speaking, various sentimental and comic
songs, such as "Dawnin Day," "Beauti
ful Bells " Many, Year s Ago," "Laugh
Boys, Laugh," and , "Land of Dreams."
The musical exercises were closed, and
the audience electrified by ' , Kingdom
Coming," exquisitely rendered by Erri ,
fessor Korner of the Quartette. ' •
A vote of thanks was then carried by
acclamation 'of the citizens present to '-
the Board of Directors for their disinter
ested and untiring efforts and their com
plete success in providing a schoolbuild
ing for the ward, so ample in size and so
vrpri adapted to its educational ,wants.
Also to the ReV. Dr. Claxk for kindly
consenting to presideon this oecaisian.
