THE SOLDIERS ROST 10 RELIEF.
The snbject of providing a fund in each coun
ty in the state, for the purpose of relieving
such of. the families .ot volunteers who were
regularly organized into companies or regi
mente 'within, the limits of Pennsylvania, and
whose Officers hold commissions issued by the
Governor of the Commonwealth, has been one
attendetrwith great solicitude, requiring spe
cial legislation to enable the Commissioners in
each county to disburse such relief, and de
manding the utmost viligence and care to pre
vent an `undue or lavish waste of the public
money iii. this Particular. The law enabling
county. commissioners to borrow money, for the
purpose of extending this relief to the families
of abient volunteers, is exceedingly stringent
and e4Piteft,l4 all its provisions'. It provides
simply.to „relieve such families whose natural
proteetors are absent in the service of the Fed
eral geverament, in regiments and companies
orgardiXl by the state authorities. Those who
leave,the state limits and enter the organiza
tion On:other 'commonwealths, however worthy
they may'have heen while residing in Penitsyl
verde, however patriotic and commendable the
service they render the nation in the army, and
howeverneedy and pressing may be the wants
of their tatellies,, they are rigorously delxtrrtd
from, all relief, simply because the fathers of
suctrfamiliet are fighting in regiments not re
cruited'Or retognized by the authorities of Penn
sylvezik,t; Of this we have had ample proof by'
correspondents writing from different parts of
the state,'-some of them giving, in detail, ac
cough cifthesuffering Of families thus situated
by the fact of the fathers serving in regiments
other than those belonging to Pennsylvania.

mop' well, as otliers which we could mention,
are ,obvious. The families of many absent sol
diers must continue to suffer, unless the rule is
chaloge4-and all companies and regiments re

SCHOOL TEACHING
In the midst of the current war excitement,
the details of preparation for battle, the rumor
of victories and defeats, a very intelligent and
a very unassuming body of professional men as
sembled in the state capital of Pennsylvania
last week. There was neither ostentation or
display about their proceedings. They met
without a flourish of trumpets, and adjourned
without even so much as a parting salute from
the many frowning brass cannons which line
capitol hill, and make the old Arsenal assume
such a horrid front of war. Under the auspices
of the State Superintedeent of common schools
in Pennsylvania, Hon. Thomas H. Burrowes, this
convention of plain school teachers assembled
to discuss the manner and the system of train
ing and educating our youths in the common
schools of the commonwealth. We must all
stop to admire such a work, and we can all pro
fitably partite before and Ponder over such an 451 . ).
ject, because it is one in which the future power
and glory of this nation are as much involved
as they are. in the contest of arms we are now
waging ; and, perhaps we may add, had the sys
tem of education in the south been of a charac
ter to instil more love of liberty and less calcu
lated to engender haughty- and aristocratic
demeanor and notions, the struggle in which we
are engaged, instead of being:_wle of arms and
death, would have been. one
,of generous
rivalry in the paths of peace while
pursuing civilized and refined objects.
From the proceedings of the Educatio nal
Convention as printed in the TKLBORAPII, our
readers doubtless observed that the desire to
promote the cause of education was sincere.—
This we all admit is one of the most important
and proudly glorious features in the state gov
ernment Pennsylvania. The tax for the sup
.
port of common schools is of the most liberal
description, paidpromptly by the people, and we
believe, fairly and carefully disbursed by those
having that portion of our finances in charge.
But there is one great point 'in our present sys
tem which escapes the notice of all except those 1 1
who are personally acqainted with the teacher
in primary schools, and which, of itself,is qui
etly obstructing that general success of the
system which its great expense and greater
merits demand it should achieve. • We allude
to the lack of disposition on the part of those
who are at the head of primary schools to make
the pacfession of school teaching a businesS.—
In nine cases out of ten, every primary male
school teacher in the employ of the directors
of common schools throughout this state, are
themselves studying some profession. They
are either ' aspiring to briefs and fees, or they
are preparing to administer Ipecac and quinine
the.moment they can raise funds for the pur
chase of the necessary parchment which confers
the ciegree of M. D. Of course, when this is
done in the primary school, the head of the
stream of education becomes polluted, the
waters necessarily muddy all along its banks,
and that which was designed to be a. pure
, and living fountain of knowledge, becomes in
the end a stagnant end murky pool. And the
neglect which is entailed' on the sichobia: bY the
pursuit of a profession by the teacher in the
primary branch, is transferred to the higher
claims, simply because we generally notice that,
whenever a young doctor or lawyer fail in prac
tice with patients or clients, he reaches back to
his school teaching, and because he has degrees
in law or physic, he claims a higher grade of
teaching, and thus gets possesaion of our higher
branches of common schools. And after he has
been fretted and disheartened by his profession
al failure he is the most unfitted of all men to
mould the impulses of youth, to open and illu
minate their minds br the inculcallon of lofty
knciwledge, and guide their hearts to virtue by
a self-virtuous and self-controlled demeanor.—
The fact of the business ,is obvious, that the
teacher cannot understand, boys or young men,
unless he make them his- study and the busi
neis of their training and teaching his profes
sion. He mustdo tide from the primary school
up to the higher departments, of, education,—
Eas t improvement must keep , pace with_, the
learning of his scholars, always so far in ad
vance as to make him the ,recognized superior.
the school room, not 'becautte ,he wields the
fertile, but because .he peateXonts the intellectual
ability, the claim which.wins by its suasive
power of intelligence, and not its brute strength
and physical force. By these means, the pro-,
motion of the teacher would, be of, . a character
'at once to command respect. His proiession
would become his business, with its grade,, its
honor and emoluments as well defined and set
tled as are thosaof_ any, other .profeasion where
the highest merit and success are only secured
by the force of intellect, integrity and. indus
try.
Perhaps we are intruding thus , to refer to
this subject, but as we are indebted for all we
know to the same system of common school
teacidng,. we are anxious that,those who,are to
come after. us should know fax more and derive
greater benefit from the same system. All this
can bft aremplisl , nu, 1 2 vilien-j-we plevate school
teaching to the grade'aUdfrimoluineni-of a :re
spectable business or profession. If we curtail
the Wary of the teacher,it it,riatftyal that: the
man will constantly - be on' the alert fOr more'
profttable_businetss.
~ But if the pay is made axle
qUate to the service, and'theProfession of teach
ink is thus encouraged and elevated, its vota
ries will devote their lives to the business. Our
friends, the teachers, Understood this' subject.
The next ,effort must be to impress the subject
.
on the minds of school directors. This we leave
,
to our cotemporariesMthe rural districts, and .
in doing so, we Lespesk their earnest efforts in
behalf of a system and its objects, next inad
vantage and importance to the success of that
qruggle in which we, are no.,.engaged for the

place to fight, but the struggle should take
place on the banks of the Susquehanna.
Gen. Wool also dispatched a flag of truce to
Norfolk with a number of letters and considera
ble clothing for the Union prisoners at Rich

NOVEL MODE OF CAPTURING REBELS,
Eight Rebels Killed and one Prisoner
Col. Leonard of the Thirteenth Massachusetts,
telegraphed - to General Banks, yesterday, that
his men at Hancock Shelled and dispersed a
party passing Westward, too small for attack,
but large enough to incite rumor. For some
time past the enemy has sent out daily, from
Fairfax Court House, a scouting party of 1,000
or 2,000 men. It breaks up into squads of 50
or 100, who attack smaller bodies of our men.
They have been very troublesome to our picket
guards of late, one of whom, composed of
twelve of Gen. Blenker's men, were captured
the other day. Another, or as a prisoner says,
the same party, had worse luck last night.
Lieut. Knight, Company B, 3d New Jersey,
went with fitty-five wen as far as Burke's Sta
tion on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad.
They stretched two telegraph wires acrosi Old
Braddock Road, one as high as the forehead of
a man on horseback, the other lower, and
awaited the results on this side. Presently half
a company of rebel cavalry dashed up on a charge.
The wires unseated two or three, and threw the
rest into confusion. Our men rushed up, emp
tied six saddles, and took one prisoner. Eight
of the party who were in ambush completed the
route, and emptied two more saddles. Eight
horses galloped within our lines. On the return
of the party, another prisoner was taken, W.
EL Johnson, of Company D, First New York
Cavalry, who had deserted the night before.—
We lost Stephen Tompkins, Company B, New-
Jersey 3d, who was wounded with a pistol
shot and is missing ; Newberry, shot in the
arm and side, who was brought into camp. The
horseman taken prisoner was Orderly Sergeant
T. H. Dunham, of the Sixth Georgia Hussars.
He gives information respecting the enemy's
scouting expeditions. He says that the post
office, hitherto at Fairfax, has been removed to
Manassas. Among the papers in his pocket
book was a slip from a southern paper, contain
ing the following telegram :
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 23.—Over twenty-eight
thousand troops were reviewed to-day by Gov.
Moore, Major General Lovell and Brigadier Gen
eral Ruggles. The line was over seven miles
long. One regiment comprised 1,400 free color
ed men. The review was one of the greatest
affairs ever witnessed on this continent. One
company displayed a black flag, whose motto
was, "We give and take no quarter."
