Ahet officer of the day reported that, on vis.

Upon this information, Gen. Jackson or

to surrender his sword, alleging it should

Nicholas Biddle and Common schools
Among other wise and liberal expedi
ents to raise money to payvttur foreign debt,
Nicholas Biddle recommends the with-
drawl)! of the annual appropriations for
supporting the common schools, as a prop
er retrenchment. On this the Boston Post
remarks: We do not know how an infa
mous proposal could well come from a more
intimous source. It is a noble principle
that every child should have an education
and that property should pay for it. Penn•
sylvania has been making exertions, within
a few years past, to have this something
more than a dead letter in that State, And
now that she has hardly commenced, it is a
piece of impudence for such a man as Bid
dle is—who runs clear of the penitentiary
merely by the skin of his teeth—to end.'av
or to put a strip to it. Biddle has earned
the execrations of thousands of widows and
orphans for reducing them to beggary by
his financiering: every' poor man in Penn
sylvania will now join them in heaping cur
ses upon hid head."
In urging this scheme, Nicholas Biddle
is but carrying out the opinions which have
been steadfastly ad.'anced by him, and
which have governed his every puliti.:ll
act. He has repeatedly dec'ared that "our
first duty is to foreigners," and he still de. I
sires justice, honor, and public c3n venience
to bend to this dogma. To carry it out he
is willing that the children of the poor shall
grow up in ignorance, and the curses which
follow in its train. He has been educated
in contempt for the masses—he inherits a '
hatred for them which he has frequently
expressed;but never more boldly nor point
edly than in his Princeton speech, where
he designated them as a "servile route, who
m wouldAsoon be scourged back to their cav
erns." Is it any wonder that lie should re,
commend government to withdraw from the
children of this "servile route" the benefits
of common school education? fhe sugges
tion comes appropriately from one who
perverted the benevolent intentions of Ste
phen Girard, who would have educated the
poor and friendless orphan: it comes forci.
Ibly from a man who has on all occasions
i spoken of the poor as if they and their off
!spring should be treated as beasts of bur.
