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." THE COTTON TRADE. - 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.

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. reined 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, -1863. 4 Board of Directors: John E.

The total cost of the building and fur nishing is estimated at 170,000. 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. _-r l -- 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 lemeateoenee of old-trine schoolhouses Or ' - dablieit,i;sehool. masters` and school 6hlldrea, oontrastleg them itith"theet'of 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. Also to the several speakers rep - their . eloquent, appropriate and edliVink help. Also, last but not least, to the Allegheny Quartette Club fonts welcome' and vat; liable service. - - • - . - We cannot close without commending the School House in the Fifth-Ward, se- • a model well worthy of inspectio&,and ••1 imitation by other Ropidous district& The completeness in quantity indadap tion of the furniture is especially:, nottt worthy; it was manufactured by Guy Freeborn, and is said to t ife the best' finished school , furniture in • the: State.::•";!
