The year 1SC3 will lon be remembered
for its settlement of the boundary question
between Aristocracy of Color and Impar
tial Human Liberty. The War of the
Rebellion being closed, wo have now to
decide whether the fundamental idea
which impelled and justified theRebeUioa
shall dominate over our whole country,
molding her institutions and shaping her
destiny. It it be true that liod has not
created all men, but ouly all White men, in
Hi- own imae, and uvjdc them equal in
political aud civil rights, then it is a
world-wide calamity that Grant did not
surrender to Lee at Appomattox: and
4,The Lo.-t Cause," trodden into mire uuder
the hoots of Sheridan's rough-riding cav
alry, not only should but will be regained
in Constitutional Conventions and at tnc
balhu-box. It the Black race, because
they are Black, should be excluded from
the jury-box and repelled lroui the ballot
box, then Stouewail Jackson ought to
head the roll of American martyrs, embla
zoned high above the nanus of Warren
and .Mercer and PuLski j of Elkvrorth,
Ljon, Raker, Reynolds, Wadaworth, Kear
uy, Sedgwick, and McPherson.
it is difficult tn argue with a blind,
besotted prejudice, grounded in ignorance
and tortiued by te:i-conceit. uevoiu oi
rtasou, it ii hardly amenably to reason.
Rut millions vho would listen unmoved to
appeals ba?ed ou Justice and Humanity
can be btirred by tacts which aff ct tlieir
own iuterest and satety. The naked truth
that every Southern State reconstructed
on the White basis i to-day a Rebel
State shaped and ruled by men who ex
ecrated Lincoln's reluctant aud tardy re
sistance to the Rebellion as a causeless
aud criminal aggression, and profoundly
rejoiced over Bull Run as their victory
will prove invincible, if we can but bring
it home to tlie apprehension of every loyal
voter. There it no paramount question of
good faith or gratitude to the Blacks.
Their votes are as necessary to the pre
ponderance of White loyalty to their
own protection and security. Reconstruct
the South cn the White basis, and every
one of the lte:u States which held slaves
in 18G0 will be inteusely, overwhe'uringly
Copperhoad thenceforth ad everm-re.
Allow to-day the pica that the Blacks are
ignorant and degraded, end thoe whom
you theu-by ciothe with power will take
good care that the plea shall ba vidid
and well-groundud a century hence a it
now is. ruuiie uuucaiion ana uivii xwinis
for the Freedmen can oaly be achieved and
maintained through the ballot. "We arc
for Negro Suffrage the way they suffer
ed it Ne A'-Orleans," was the inscription
ou a banuer borne in a lute Cnserative
or Democratic procession in Baliimoio ;
and the spirit which dictated that avowal
is stiil rampant in the South Rut lor
what i-stigma'.ized a- Military Despotism,
it would daily avenge by uutrage and
infliction what it deems negro treachery to
the Southern cause.

Following is the material portion of
the. ao passed by the Legislature of this
State last winter providing for the estab

tendent of each couny in this common
wealth is hereby authorized and requir
ed, once in each year, at puch time aud

committee of teaohers, acting with him,
may deem most onvenint, to call upon
and invite the teachers of the common
schools, and other institutions ot learn
ing in this country, to assemble together,
aud organize themselves into a teachers'
instiLute, to be devoted to the improve
mecif teachers in the science and art of
cdritjtion, and to continue in session at
least five day, Including : hnlf a day for
going to and a halt day for returning

stitute to be presided over by the county
superintendent, or by pome one designa
ted by him, and subject, in its general
management, to his control.
Sec 3. That each county superinten
dent, upon the assembling of the teacher's
institute of his county, shall cause a roll
of members to be prepared, which roll j
shall be called at least twice every day,
during the se.won of the institute, and
all absentees carefully marked, and from
which, up-n the adjournment of the insti
tute, he shall a-certain the exact numbers
ot teachers who were in attendance, a:d
the length of time each atteuded; aud
upon the presentation of a certificate, at
the close of the se-sion of each anuual
institute, setting forth these facts and
signed by the county superintendent, to
the freasurer of the proper county, he is
hereby authorized and required to pay
immediately, out of any money in he
couuty treasury not otherwise appropria
ted, to the county superintendent, one
dollar for every three days spent by teach
ers of the couuty in attendance at the
iustitute, for that year, or as much of it
as may be needed; such money to be ex
pended by the county superintendent in
procuring the service ot lecturers and
instructors for the institute, and in provid
ing the necessary apparatus, stationery
and books, for carrying on its work.
Provided, That the amount which may be

and upholds the equal political as well as

good, sharp, buiicss ideas, aud, as a gen

all the merchants who have retired rich
the true secret of their success ; ask them
what it was that first brought them intu

a judicious system ot advertising. But
the question fiist to be solved by all who
intend to advertise "is what is a proper
aud profitable mode of using the priuterV
ink ? Aud before answering this, we must
know what class of custom you intend to
reach. If you are doing an entirely city
trade, of course it is only a waste of mon
ey to advertise in country papers; and
the same may be said if you arc cngaccd
exclusively in a couniry trade it will
only be throwing moaey away to make
use ot the columns of the city dailies.
But if your trade is with the country
people generally, then use the best coun

which you desire to trade, and give them
a goou auvertisement not sucn as you.
sometimes see in the papers, making a
great deal of fuss when they have but
very little to sell. Advertise just what
you have to sell, and keep it always be
fore the people. Above all, don't do
your advertising spasmodically that is to
say, don't advertise a few days, and then
stop a month, as most people do, arguing
that it is no time to advertise in a dull
season. A greater mistake was never
made, for it is during the dull season that
pf ople have the most time to read the pa
pers, and by so often reading over the
advertisement ot a firm, the. buyer begins
to think ho is acquainted with the same,
and very uaturaliy finds himself wending
his way to the house whose advertisement
he has seen and read so frequently during
the dull winter or the hot summer months.
Some men fully understand the use of the
printer, and make him lend a helping
hand toward gaining The fortuue wc aro
all looking for. Why may not others do
the same? Surely what has becu den
