Abraham Lincoln,

Andrew Johnson,
Election Tuesday, Aug. 2, 1864.
We are without any definite advioes of the
exact whereabouts of the rebels who left Ma
ryland so precipitately yesterday and tht
night before. The raiders may yet possibl;
be hovering about localities in Virginia
whence they can suddenly emerge to rob anc
murder the defenceless Union men. who lir(
along their route of plunder, brit we really do
not .believe that their demonstrations
again amount to what could be estimated a:-
an assault upon either Baltimore or Wash
ington. Having faile. in their first great ob.
ject of inducing Grant to withdraw from be
fore Petersburg, Lee will not again trust an;
of his forces from his entrenchments, becanst
he cannot tell how soon he may need all hie
available strength to repel a sudden
attack by Grant. The siege and de
fence of Petersburg has now al.solutely
become the rebellion and the struggle
to crush it out. When Petersburg falls, Rich
mond will be deprived of its main line of de
fenee—it will literally become the subject of
the panic of its own people. Of course this
is all surmise, and may be regarded as only
valuable to insure the consciences of "peam
men," solicitous for the "end of the war,'.'
not that the authority of the nation may:- be
vindicated, but that "this wicked crusade on
the chivalrous people of the South" may cease.
Petersburg is now the point to which all eyes
will be turned. There the fate of the rebel
lion is for the present centered. If that city
can be carried by assault or induced to surren
der, then indeed may we look for short, cam
paigns in Virginia, if not actually for the end
of the rebellion.
As the excitement caused by the raid is al
layed, and we can clearly survey the path of
the plunderers, we are more and more con
vinced of the fact that there was scarcely an
armed rebel in Pennsylvania, and that our
people suffered little or no damage, beyond
that of the injury incident to a delay in cut
ting and gathering their crops, with the
damage to stock of various kinds in beinp
suddenly removed. The damage in .Mary
land was also light. Hunter in Virginia wai
ten times more destructive than was Early in
Maryland, while the bffeot of Wilson's raid
was of a character from which the rebels
will not soon recover. The rebels had, of
course, the opportunity to destroy vast
amounts of property, but they were too anx
ious to draw Grant from Petersburg by de
monstrations on Washington, to devote much
time to the work of destruction. Only after
they had discovered the failure of their pur
pose, did the rebels begin to rob and burn.
But then came the news of Banks' advance
with his forces Vora New Orleans—the fact,
too, that Hunter was Asa the alert with a heavy
force, all of whip warned the rebels hastily
to retreat. When they did begin to retire.
then also began their work of robbery. Never
theless, as a strategic movement or as a raid,
view it as we may, the plan which Lee at
tempted to have executed in Maryland must
be regarded as the worst failure of the rebel
lion. .
Tickets for the August Election—the Con
stitutional Amendments
We are authorized by the chairman of the
Union State Central Committee, to state that
at the late meeting thereof, it was resolved bc
furnish tickets of the Constitutional Amend
ments, only to the Union men of such coun
ties as have no facilities for printing. The
central committees of such looalities should
therefore lose no time in securing a full supply
of such tickets, by at once applying to the chair
man of the Union State Central Committee,
at Harrisburg. who has adopted measures for
the immediate filling up of such orders
Wherever it is possible, the chairman of the
State Central Committee deems it just that
the patronage of printing tickets for each lo
°silty should be bestowed upon the local or
gans in each district, with a view to secure
the amplest support of the local loyal press.
But where there is no loyal press or printing
office at hand, the necessary tickets will be
promptly supplied.
It is important that our friends in every
district should be aroused to the magnitude
of the issue involved in the August election.
The disgrace of being defeated by the vigi
lance or overwhelming numbers or our foes,
would be humiliating, but to be defeated kr
our own negligence or indifference would be
wofnl, deplorable, suicidal.
The Member of the State central Commit
tee from Clinton County.
The Chairman of the State Central
Committee has.appointetd .13 ; Kris)► Petriken a
member of that committee from Clinton
county, vice Charles W. Wingard. Mr. Petri
ken is one of the ablest men in that part of
the State. and a Union man of tried integrity
and undaunted courage. His appointment
will, of course, give great satisfaction to the
Union men of Clinton county.
The Philadelphst Preys of yeateiday, says:

Annual Report of the Superin

In eventful one. An immense army was moving
oward Hanistarg. All was excitement and
'reparation. The first week of July saw the
'abet invaders fleeing from the State. Agair

hospital purposes; and so used for months, te,

Braminations.—Early in July notice was
given of the time for holding the public ex
aminations in each district; which notice con
tained several important suggestions to teach
ers and directors.
Twenty-four examinations were held; 84
lirectors were in attendance and 396 citizens.
Al provisional certificates were granted; of
these 26 were renewed foreatisfactory reasons,
!Ind by sp-cial request of directors. Of 215
Applicants examined, 96 were under 21 years
i 7 between 30 and 40; 11 over 40 and 3 ore
This shows how great a proportion ii
he prime of life, young vigorous and ener.
mtic. Were the inducements sufficient, pc
mniarily, to retain in the profession, we would
soon love an active and efficient corps 01
sachem thronghout the county. The birth.
)lace of 127 was Dauphin county; 88 else
shere; 48 had never been examined; 139 in
end making teaching a profession; 137 had
:ead educational works; and 51 had been ex
'mined by other superintendents.. Certify
zates .were granted to 51 female teachers; but
LO applicants were rejected. Although ! have
lad the experience of years in the examine
ion of teachers, yet I always enter upon this
lelicate duty with a fall appreciation of its
faculties. I gave, briefly, my method of
ouducting examinations in my report for
Visitations.—Next to examination of teach
ire, the most important duty of a County Su
mrintendent is the visitation of schools:-
Imb school must be visited as frequently as
practicable; everything in awl around the
chool house must be noted; the method of
caching observed; suggestions made—some
times with great caution, to prevent unplea
.4ant Melings—at other -times with firmness and
lecision; complaints must be listened to from
directors, teachers, parents and sometimes
;rpm pupils. The Superintendent must act
judiciously. Having closed the public ex
aminations in September. I was engaged from
that time until May in the 'regular visitation
of schools, excepting two weeks, one of which
was spent with the County Superintendents in
convention and one with theleachers of the
county. The schools were all visited, 50 the
second time; average duration, of visits, two
hours. The traveling. was done principally
on foot, excepting when railroads could be
School Rouses.—ln the county there are 172
school houses, 205 schools, 209 teachers; 11
mhools are taught in rented. .rooms. Of the
school houses 57 may be considered good, 60
middling, .55 poor or unfit. But 3 school
houses were built during the past year. Al
)earitifnl franle in Susquehanna district;
Awn taken from school architecteire, 40 feet
33 feet. to ceiling 9k feet, then arched; 4 rows
f double desks, graded to seat 60 pupils; yes
ibrde of fri feet, entrance by 2 doors; cupola
end bell; on griod sized lot, surrounded by 'a
neat fence; lot donated by Rex-. James Colder,
warm friend of the common school system.
Another excellent frame. was erected in Jack
ion district, similar to those of this district,.
lescribed heretofore. A more suitable situa
tion should have been secured for this build
ing, as it stands on a bleak hill side.' The
teacher informed me that for many winters
there had been a great deal of sickness among
the pupils of this school, and but little the
)est. There can be no doubt of the injurious
ffect of small, miserable shool houses crowded
.vith pupils. Ic this were fully understood,
oich poor buildingiii would disappear more
apidly. A good brick school house was
built in Port Royal, Londonderry district.
rhe selection of the site for this house was
unfortunate. Lot low and small, elose to
;anal. The directors stated they could do no
cater, as they failed in securing a title for
the ground on which the old house stood.
The building of other houses was contem
plated in several districts, but was postponed
on account of the high price of materials.
The directors of Middletown purchased an
addition to the play ground of the North
ward schools; and had a brick outhouse
built, containing 20 apartments. There are
still school houses in the county that have not
suitable outhouses.
Furniture and Apparatus.—Furniture of the
best style was placed in the female secondary
Achocil of the South ward, Harrisburg. In
the North ward, 60 double desks of pine:
neatly stained, were placed in the boys' pri
mary school ; giving the room an entirely
changed appearance, and adding greatly to
the comfort of the pupils. Two of the effi
cient teachers of Lower Suntara were instru
mental in making a change in their rooms, an
entire alteration of desks, with other improve
ments. Seven sets of Cornell's outline maps
were purchased by the directors for the
schools of Susquehanna ; two sets of Pelton's
:or two of the schools of Lower Paxton,
bought by the patrons • a set of. Schcfield's
National Tablets was Placed in the primary
school of Dauphin ; also, a set in the primary
ichool of Union Deposit. Similar charts
should be in all primary schools.- One of the
-tobools of Derry presented a cheerful and
pleasing aspect; maps, charts, pictures, mot
toes and evergreens were tautgtfrtily arranged
around the room. Teachers might do a great
deal in this way to make school rooms at
tractive. There are several districts without
mapl, charts, &e.; in time, we still hope these
aids to teachers and pupils will be introduced.
Graded Schools, &c.—There are 66 graded
schools in the county. None were graded
luring the past year. The schools have been
traded in every town with more than one
school. The grading in many places might
be greatly improved. The schools ar all clas
.ified. The average grade of certificate was
For orthography, reading, writing and
arithmetic, the lowest number, 3; for mental
arithmetic. geograghy and grammar, 4; but
few received this number. The • Scriptures
were read in 150 schools. Many were opened
with singing and prayer. Though many of
the teachers were young, their general success
was good; in nearly every school found good
order, and an advancement of the pupils.
There was a difference in many, respects be
tween schools taught by experienced teach
ers. and those taught by. beginners. One evi
dence of the success of teachers was the slight
complaint made by directors and parents.
The directors of Middletown paid secretary
$75 for services as district superintendenV
Londonderry paid *lO. The schools of these
districts were benefitted by the regular visi
tation .of these active and efficient officers.
Nany of the secretaries of other districts are
compensated for their services, but are not
required to perform the duties of district Su
perintendent. -
District Instlttites.—But two distridts ,in
which Institutes were not held—Reed and
Rush. As these are small the teachers are
permitted to' connect themselves with adjoin
ing districts. The Institutes, during the peat
winter, were well attended, and the general
feeling of teachers and directors was favor
able. / would suggest that at the close of
every, train a report be forwarded to the
County Superintendent by each Secretary of
an TristAte. - givin,e, the method of conducting
it and ''the
of interest connected there
with. following was - reeeived from a
teacher of Lykene: "The Institttte was held
on alternate Saturdays, in the different school
houses of the diatrict. At each meeting the
President appointed teachers to conduot UM
tations of a portirn of each branch named on
the certificate, giving two weeks for prepare
'on, and to express their views upon the best .
method of teaching the branch assigned. 7 7:
Some question of importance respecting.
ichool government was then discussed. :The,
friends of education were requested to.
cipate in the discussions. An interest we
ore:►ted among the scholars, and many of them
prevailed on their prrents to attend. The
scholars and their parents felt that the teach
ers were endeavoring to improve themselves.
and that they were - preparing to - give instrno
tion in the best way.
Comfy Institute.—A County Institute was
h-id in Veeember. The exereisel were inter
esting, and were conducted . principally by the
teachers of the county. The thanks of the
Institute were tendered the State Superin
tendent and Prof. Bates,of the School Depart
ment, and otherP,Pory aluable ser vices. Eighty
our active and intelligent teachers were pre
sent; many more should have attended. Sev
eral very interesting Union District Institutes
were held in the lower end .of the county.
Phis movement originated with the active
and energetic teachers of Derry. Adjoining
districts throughout the county should hold
these meetings. Rendered interesting, as
they can be, their influence would prove ben
eficial. Evening meetings could be held and
addresses delivered.
Professional Certificrties.—At the county in
stitute professional certificates were given to
Y. B. Beam, James R. Schreiner, M. R. Alio
man, Franklin Smith, Daniel W. Miller, Amos
Zimmerman, Wm. J. Lawrence, Rate Horst.
Matilda Benjamin, Mary R Till and. Maria
Nolen. Although these teachers may not, in
every respect, equal the standard adopted, yet
I considered them entitled to the certificate
given. If teachers of acknowledged success
and ability are not encouraged, others Will
make less effort to qualify themselves. In
cluding the above named teachers, 28, with
professional certificates, taught last winter.
Teachers' Salaries.—The directors of Harris
burg and Middletown generously and justly,
in view of the increased expenses of living,
raised the salaries of their teachers. In the
rural districts and smaller towns, the best
teachers are seeking other employments on
account of low wages. Directors might pre
vent this, by giving good teaChers a living
compensation. An experienced professional
teacher of this county, who taught for years
in the upper end, engaged in °their bubinegs
in the spring. He says in a letter received
"When I am school director, it will lie-
good-bye to poor teachers."
Visits.—lt is to be regretted that, in several
districts, the visitation of schools by directors
was very much neglected.
Why do the clergymen of the county so 64-
dom visit our schools? Their visits would al
ways be acceptable to teachers and pupils.
Their influence for good would lie great.-:
Teachers. too, are always pleased to Seiftlie,
parents of their pupils. It the teacher's
duty also to visit the parents.
Miscellaneous.—The directors of the North
ward, Harrisburg, purchased a valuable li
brary for the benefit of their teachers. We
hope to see these libraries introduced into
every district. -
Many teachers Of. this county take the Pena
sylvania School Journal. It•is valuablly
every teacher, and worthy of , ericourage.ment.
It is hoped that the affidavits with slam*,
and the reports carefully filled'olat, will all e
forwarded in time to the County Superintend
ent by the proper officers of- eabh'' , board,„ac.
cording to instructions in the'May iitunb'er bf
School Journal.
The female teachers and pupils of Mari-
burg deServe praise for their effortsbeh f
of the sick and wounded soldiers. In mon y
and fancy articles their contribution t%,t, e
"Great Central Fair" amounted VA:Ivo - Snit
dred dollars.
I am unable to give the number of teachets
that have been engaged in' the service of flaw
country. Many, however, have nobly, re
sponded under the various calla- that haVe
been made. . ,
In concluding this report, may we not hope
that this unholy ret•ellion may soon be
crushed, and that again the angel of peace
may forever spread her wings of love over
our fair land.

The Enemy Fear Shernuin
WAsln*droN, July 1.51
The Atlanta (Georgia) APparlDf tllle 4th of
July. has just been reeeired here. It says:
A more probable sob/thin* Gen. Sherman's

and thus leave Atlanta uncovered. If such
be realty the design of the wily Yankee 'com
mander, we have an abiding faith that he will
be foiled in his purpose and brought to grid •

reason why it might not be transferred to this

the same thing; otherwise there is no alterna

domination of the invader."
From Washington:
Major General Gilmore was this morning
thrown froth his horse at the head of the
troops now following up the rebels. lie was
severely injured in the ankle and has been
succeeded temporarily by General Emery.
It is reported that the rebels were yester
day afternoon crossing their main forces at
Seneca and opposite to Poolsville, and that
their advance was this morning along the
roads in London county leading in the direc
tion of Ashby's Gap. •
Cannonading was heard in .the neighbor
hood of Seneca early this morning. Our
cavalry has been harassing and annoying the
rebel rear. No definite result of the opera
tions has yet been received, further than the
capture of a number of prisoners.
Nothing ip known here abOut General
Grant's reported occupation of. Petersburg,
npr of General Sheridan's -intentions. The
Wall street brokers seem to be particularly
favored with news.
Accounts from the Army of the Potomac
stale that on Tuesday morning the rebels
made a demonstration on the Jerusalem road,
apparently for the purpose of attacking our
troops, but being confronted by an ample
force•they changed their design. Perhaps the
rebels made their movement to feel our lines
ILIA ascertain our military position. The
body of Col. P. S. Davis, 39th Massachusetts.
was brought to Washington today. One of
the enemy's shells entered his tent on Mon
day, and after rolling under the chair in which
he was quietly reading, exploded, wounding
him in so shocking a manner that, he died
within an hour afterwards.
