- - Fur Me Journal.
A few weeks ago, a simple statement
appeared in the Journal in reference to the
County Superintendent. It contained no
offensive language, and was published to
the hope that, if incorrect, the Superin
tendeet would avail himself of the lirst
opportunity to place himself right before
the people. For the truth of that state
Meta, we have authority. We never had
nor hove we now, any disposition to misre.
present the Superintendent: tor Heaven
knows, his consistency, personal and offi
cial, is pitiable enough without any ntisre•
presentation. To the charge preferred,
the Superintendent has given us two re_
plies; in neither of which. however. dues
he even attempt a denial of its truth.—
But believing, it seems, that recrimination
is argument, he justifies himself by accu.
stilt; us of the same wrong of which he
snouts self.convioted ! This is logic with
a vengeance Mr. SupePintendent, “thou
reasonest well."
This controversy hes taken a course un
sauulti and unexpected by us. But its the
;-uperintendent has given “the stoke, he
must take the scorpion." An eye for on
eye," dm
The Superintendent proposes several
questions which we proceed to answer;
sorry, bowever, that we are compelled to
disappoint him in his estimate of our dis
cretion To the first, the fourth and the
sixth interrogatory, we reply emphatically
in the negative. The second and the third
we answer in the affirmative. As IV?
have no ' , darling institution," the fifth and
seventh "go by the board," As to the
eighth, we would say that even if our ar
ticle aoes contain errors, we very much
doubt the Superintendent's ability to de
tect them. Are the above answers satis
factory I If no, Mr. Superintendent will
please give us the catecl,ism. We indulge
the hope that the Superintendent will bear
this change of position with his usual
equanimity. Why does the Superinten.
dent,in making his charges against us,
shield himself behind the innocent it ? Is
not the Superintendent extremely anxious
that the people should know that he has
read Father W hately ? Would the Super.
intendant hold the office he does, had he
not made the basest misrepresentations I
Did not the students of a "certain institu
tion," in which the Superintendent was a
teacher, sign a petition for his dismissal 1
Has the •uperintendent any "conscten
ions scruples" about his late "Norinal
School" enterprise ? Did the conduct of
the superintendent toward a lady teacher
in n certain instituti in, contribute to his
respectability ? Did not the Superinten
' dent, a few months ago, grant a certificate
zei , hout examination, to a person who
had serer taught school an hour ; and
ten., that the-way to correct abuses ? Do
the people of this county believe that the
Superibiritendent is competent to dis
' charge the duties or the office he now
holds ? We may add to the above, if it be
. cornea necessary.
We are the "whispering advocate" of
no schools. But when the educational
servant of the whole county, labors to in.
J • r the educational interests of any part
of the mainty, it is our right—ay. our
duty, to expose his treachery. Against any
attacks made in consequence of doing this,
"the blood of Incog can defend itself."
The superintendent is. evidently in
trouble ; he becomes desperate; and as,
, men catch at straws," he
cries "Help one, Leroy. or I sink." Let us
examine the superintendent's logic. He
is the fri nd of all our literary institutions;
hut one of our literary institutions it a
'swindling instillment ;" therefore, he
is the friend of ' , swindling instruments."
Shades of Blair Protect us! In justice to
the Superintendent, we acknowledge that
his conduct adds force to his logic. We
will now make the superintendent "glad' ,
again by putting some inquiries to him as
to the correctness and construction of parts
of his last article. Does he not know
that his first sentence is palpably incorrect?
Is he so cruel as to think that we would,
for one moment, entertain a private antip
athy against him T Shall ''our name,"
or our self, be "a law se udent?"
If the former, when will tt be admitted?
Is it really so that the Superintendent
tends to give a newspaper review of each
with which his knowledge will justify ?"
Do the bands of some persona "work to
injury ?" Whose injury ? Will the
"Superintendency," or the Superintendent
