Hn ictifu nad ihrou h icliom this can

present.: ' . '
That the views and conceptions of n
single individual, howerer hih he may be
accidentally and temporarily exalted, sho'd
be allowei to coutrol or determine this
question, cannot lor a moaieut be conce
ded. The Constitution provides that the
United States shall guarantee to everv
State in the'Uhion a republican form of
government and, where the will of the
people is the acknowledged law of rh laud,
it requires an extraordinary amount of
political eUroutery to assume that a Chief
Executive of tho nation, to any decree or
under any circumstances, is the United
And yet in effect or : substance, if not
in plain terms, this was assumed shortly
after the surrender of Lee and his armed
lorces, by the President; and he has
Continued to act on this assumption, even
to his late annual message, in which,
while claiming, in word unknown to our
toretblhers and our insiructious, to be the
'elecud defender" of the people, he
arrogantly ealls.ou Cougrejtj to 'immedi
ately t.:rike from tho statute bookss", its
reconstruct ion laws.
Thai Coiii: resH "will surrender its plan
of rec-oustructiou" to this inanitestly
despotic demand, cannot be even imagined
or to-jtctured. That plan, carefully
matured a- it was, and fully approved
when it wis a direct i&sue before the
people, is emiiieutly just, wise and patri
otic. It innists that men who were loyal
iu acts during the rebellion, or loyal, in
their feelings, should aiue participate iu
the immediate government ot iho ''insur
rectionary districts." lioing beyond the
mere t-utface, it rests ultimately on the
important dociritie that the deliuies of
(he nation can oly be safe "iu the hands

and motal natures remain sufficiently
puru to feel the impui-.es of patrotiaui

The County Institute.
The assembling of the County Institute
oa Tuesday, 7th instant, marked a new
era in the history of the common school-
of Cambria county. Hitherto, - our most
successful Institutes w re never composed
of more than from thirty to thirty-6ve
teachers. This year, although our county
had no Institute fur about three years
previous, t'le number rose at a bound o
seveuty five, and what is better still, the
whole number, with very few exceptions,
remained during the entire four d-iys re
quired by law. The number of teachers
in. the county is about one hundred and
sixty. 'Ihe causes of this renewed iotcr
est iu educational affairs are variou.
Amonj; them, we might name the follow
jug : 1. The returu of peace. Duiing
the war, that m;ghty contest dwarfed
all common uffaits into very diminutive
proportions'. Since its close, educational
matters are attracting that attention their
importance demands. 2. The law ol laid
winter authorizing County : Superinten
dents to draw on their respective CoULtie.
for funds to defray t:eeesary expenses of
Institutes. 3. The carne-tiiers and clli
ciency ot the lute Superintendent of .school
in this county, aud aUu ol the present in

of many of our teachers that Cambria

The smallest amount to which Superiu
te dents are restricted in drawing fund
from tfic county fur Institute purposes is
sixty dollais ; the maximum is-two hun

was HXty-threc dollars.

Gen. J. 31. Campbell.
We are in receipt of the second annual
report ol Surveyor General J. M. Camp

the pa-st year show an increase over for
mer yeais. Iu the opinion ot (Jen. Camp-
bell, this increase will probably continue
or several years to come. The clerical
force of the office during the fiscal vear

The County Acoitors are now engaged
in their annual task of passing upon the
finai cial affairs of the, county. It has
hitherto been the cusldm to present to th?
taxpayers a balance sheet of which the
principal feature was so many indefinite
debits balanced by so nrnny scarcely less
indefinite" credits ; but as to the correct
ness of either, no man could form any cor
rect idea from the published statement.
We hope this year a different course will
be followed, and a statement given which
shall clearly set forth to the people what
has been done with their money. At
the present, we merely call attention to
this matter. Wc shall again refer to it.
The South will not vote for Hancock

Southern Conservative j3urnal;sts recoil
from giving Hancock their support for
