J Faulkner and Latcson JSotts, Charleston,
la: John Brown, leader of the insurrec
tion at Harper's Ferry, and several of his
family, have resided in this county many
years. Insanity is hereditary in that fam
ily. His mother's sister died with it, and
a daughter of that sister has been two
years in the Lunatic Asylum. A son and
daughter of fail mother's brother have al
so been confined in the Lunatie Asylum,
and another son of that brother is uow in
sane and under close restraint. These
face can be conclusively proven by wit
nesses residing here, who will doubtless
attend the trial, if desired. (Sigued A.

Captain Brown, in bis insurrection at liar
per'a Ferry, is devoid of truth. We have
the best authority for stating that 'the
company has never iuvesti d a dollar in
cannon or titles, in powder or lead, or in
any of tbe implements of war,' for use in
Kansas or anywhere else." But Brown,at
close of the Kansas war, got hold of many
of tbe arms sent in to aid the settlers in de
feating tbe Border Ituffians.

UNIM COUNTY STAR
j Tlie Public Sclnols of Union County.
The duty of examining the teachers of
this county, is once more performed. The
number of persons who manifested their
willingness to serve as teachers in our
public schools, was One Hundred and
Twenty-Three. Fourteen ol those, bad
County Certificates ; and ninety-seven of
those examined received Provisional ones,
varying from No. 1 to No. 3. Thise ap
plicants whose attainments full below the
I medium, received none. I was obliged to
j take this str p for this reason : heretofore,
; nearly every ono who had a certificate, no
j matter of what grade, was almost certain
j to got a school, iu some district if not
, oa the merits of his certificate, because he
j was willing to "keep school" for a small
compensation, which iu some parts was
considered of more importance to the tax-
payers, than the qualifications of the school-
master, liesiues this, tbe teacher s low
, d(J was enera!Iy rec0ncikd with the
j common opinion that a "very poor or ne-
j glected school required but little skill or
ueugrapny nor urammar, mcreiore mc
t ''teacher didn't oce j to kuow nothing of
those branches neither." But this fall I
' found but one.
j The average of tbe grade of certificates
' granted this fall, proves that the tcaohers
generally have improved very much in
their attainments during the past year, or,
that the examinations have been less rigid.
, None Lave openly charged mo with bav-
I nig too low a standard. JJut a numner ot
j applicants after looking over the list of
: questions, Ac., intended for tbe written
part of the examination, seemed to say by
their action that they considered them "loo
hard," and therefore concluded to leave
teaching to those who could answer aod
explain them. If the most experienced
and efficient of tbosa who applied for
schools in this county, found employment
in our schools, we will have reason to look
for much improvement in them during the
present school year. I hopo wo may not
be disappointed in any of them.
In looking over the field of labor, and
summing np all the evidences for and
against the improvement of our schools,
we find the accouut stands decidedly in
favor of progress and progress, too, that
will stand investigation progress, tbat
will be moro appreciated by the next gen
eration than by the present. We have
not claimed Railroad speed improvement
in our schools, for we wore obliged to
build the road first. Every person who
has given this sulject auy close attention,
will have observed that tbo schools, not
