The Legislature of Pennsylvania, has in
consideration a Supplement lo the Common
School law ol this commonwealth relating
to the maintenance and education of desti
tute orphan children and brothers and sis
ters of deceased soldiers and sailors. It
provides that the school directors of each
scbool districMn this commonwealth, fhall
within ninety days after ihe passage of the
act, and annually thereafier a ihe State

Interesting Qaestions and Answers relative
to tne 7-20 1'. 8. Loan.
Mr. Jay Cooke, of Philadelphia, who for
0 long a time hnJ the management of the
popular 800 million 5 20Loau, ha, just been
appointed'by Secretary Feasenuen, the Gen
eral Agent to dispose of the only popular
Loan now offdrecf for sale by the Govorn
ment, viz: the "SEVEN THIRTY."
.In entering upon his duties he desires to
-answer plainly the large number of ques-
tions daily and hourly propounded to him,
so that his fellow-countrymen may all on.
derstand what this "Seven-Thirty Loan" is
what are its peculiar merits, how they
can subscribe lor or obtain the notes, &c
15 Question Why is this Loan called the
( "Seven-Thirty" Loan 1
Answer. It bears Interest, in currency, at
(be rale of Seven Dollars and thrrty cents,
eacb year, on every hundred dollars ; mak-
king the interest as follows :
One cent per day on each
T o cents "
S 0 note.
When and how can they be
. Answer. They are for sale, at par, and
accrued interest, by all Sub-lreasnries. Na.
tion'and other Batiks, and all Bankers and
3d Question. When is the interest payable
and how can it be collected I
Answer. The Coupons or Interest Tickets
are due J5lb ol February and 15th of Au
gust, in each year, and can be cut off from
ihe rjote, and will be cashed by any Sub-
Treasurer, U. S- Depository, National or 6th
er Bank or Banker.
4th Question When must the Government
pay cfl these 7,30s ?
An-icer. They are die in two years and
a half from ih l5th ol February, 1865; viz:
on lb" 15ih of Ausust, 1867. '
bth Q'les'wn Must I receive back my
money as soon as 1867 ?
Auitccr. Ao not unless yon yourself
prefer lo do so-the Law gives you the right
to demand from the Government, at that
time, either your money or an eqnal Imonnt
at par, of th famous and 5 20 Gold Bearing
6 per cent. Loan.
6th Question. How much do yon consid
er this privilege of conversion, into 5.C0
Loan 10 be worth ?
Answer 5.20s bearing Gold Interest from
1st of November. are to-day worth 9 per cent
premium. If they are worth no' more at
the end of the two yeaTS and a fialf, when
you have a right to them, ihan' ihey now
are, this premium added to ihe interest you
receive, will give you at least 10 per cent,
per annum for your money but the opin
ion is that they will be wor:h more than 9
per cenl. premium at that time.
1th Question. What other advantage is
there in investing in the 7.30 Loai ?
Answer. It cannot be taxed by States,
Counties, or Citie, and this adds from one
to three per cent, per annum to the net in
come of the holder, according lo the rate of
taxation in various localities. All bond
and mortgages, &c, are taxed, not only by J
the Government, but by States, Counties
8'h Qiestion. Ifow does the Government
raise the money to pay he interest, and is
it sale and ture ?
, Answer' The Government collects, by
taxes, internal revenue, and duties on im-
I port, fully three hundred millions each
) ear. This is r.early three times as much j
as is needed to pay the interest on all the j
debt, and as soon as the war is ended,
the amount not needed to Dav the inter- !
est will be used in paying off tbe debt. I
Our Government has twice paid off all its
debt, and can easily
do ko aain. -j j,e
interest is sure lo
me debt itself is lhe very safest investment
in the world. It is as safe as a morrgage on
a good larm, and pays a better interest 1
it is in facta first Mortgage on all
atl incomes, all railroad and caualbouds, :
and bank or other stocks, mortgages, &c. j
Nothing can be safer, lor we are bound j
for i:,' and all that we have is firmly held
for Ihe payment of principal and interest, j
Howlootifh those people are, who keep ;
their gold and greenbacks idle and locked !
up, or purchase mortgages or railroad j
stocks ar.d bonds, which pay only 5 or 6 )
. wuw,. .uB.c..n.in.r- ,
ues pay (counting ine premium on rive
Twenties ) over len per cent., and are so
much afer and sorer.
9th Q'cfs.'i'yn How many Seven Thirties
are thrre, and how much remains unsold ?
i.su-er. There are only about three
hundred and twenty five millions 'author
ized by law, and only about one hundred
and ninety millions remain unsold.
ICi Question. How long will it take you
to tell the balance 1 .
Answer. There are about 800 National
Banks all engaged in selling ihem ; also a
large nnmber of the old banks, and at least
three thousand private broker, and spe
cial agents will be engaged in ail parts ol
ihe country in disposing of ihem to the peo
ple. llth Question. How long will ii tak) lo
sell ihe whole ? . .
Answer. In less than three mouihs they
will be all sold, and will no doubt then sell
at a premium, as was the case with lhe old
Seven Thirties the first Twenty-Vear Loan,
and lhe. Five Twenties.
The above questions and answers, it is
believed, will give full information to all.
It not, tbe General Sobecription Agenf,or
any of'the Banks or Bankers ernplojed to
sell the Loan will be glad 10 answer ail
questions, and 10 furnish the Seven-Thirties
in MQall or large snms (as the no.es are is
sued in denominations of SjO, SlOO, S500,
SI 000 and S5.0G0,) and to render .il easy
for all to subscribe thus fulfilling the in
structions of Mr. Fessenden, who earnestly
desires that the people of the whole land,

The Cnptnre.cf Charleston.
, The steamship Fulton brings news to the
18th inst., corroberaliqg the fall of Charles
ton and its occupation by the Federtl forces.
The evacuation of'CharUlon was -first dis
covered by our. forces under Gen. Schim
melpfinning, from James Island. Exactly
at whai lime is rot yet reported, thonsth
the occupation of the city and of be fortifi
cations look place at about 10 e'clock in
the forenoon of the 18 h instant. The de
parture, of the Confederates from Forts
Sumpter and Moultrie was, it is understood,
seen from our pickei boats which reconnoi
tre the harbor at night ; and ihe operations
of the Confederate garrisons began about
twelve hours before the evacuation was
completed namely, at 10 o'clock on ihe
evening of ihe 17th. Early in the morning
of the 18th, two terrific explosions in.
Charleston were observed from' our fleets
Fire, smoke and burning fragments fii'.ed
the air lor a great distance ; and the shock
was severely felt by all our vessels, Soon
afterward, asd before daylight, fires were
sel in oiber places, and extended tbroagh
oul the upper part of the city. Il has since
been ascertained thai many thousand bales
of cotton were burned inconsequence ollhe
explosion of the warehouse?, and other
public buildings that were fired by the con
federates. Our forces took possession of
the city in Ihe forenoon, as already report
ed Gen. Schimmelfinning was unoppod,
the Confederates leaving a ihe Federal
troops came in sight. There was not even
a show of resistance. The population of
Charleston consists entirely of the poorer
classes, wiio were unable lo gel away; ihe
j rich, had for several days been removing
The persons who remained were in want;
ihey had nothing to eat, and no means o!
obtaining anything. Their situation is de
scribed as much worse '.haw the inhabitants
ol Savannah after the capture of that cay.
The lower part of the city within reach of
our guns was in effect a ruin, and was al
most uninhabited. Compariti ve!y few per
sons dared lo.remain there. Some of the
houses were knocked down ; bricks and
limbers were lying every where, and the- ret
in particular were strewn with fragments, in
many places entirely obstructing tuvel.
Shplls were laying among the ruius. The
appearance ol ihe ci:y the lower part un
inhabitable and the upper part in flames
is described as dreary and desolate in Ihe
extreme. There is information that the
evacuation of Charleston bean nearly three
week;) ago. A Confederate officer, who
deserted and was examined at Port Knyal,
gave some ol the details; bet they were not
believed. Since lhat lime the Confederates
have been at wojk removing stores, though
all the heavy scpp!ies wee left. The only
information in regard to the Confede rate is j
that the direction taken by them in their
flight was northward, and lhat their num
ber was about 14,000 Day Hook. j
