MR. EDITOR :-
The repeal of the offied of County Superin
tendent of Common Schools is now tieing agi•
toted to some extent. I propose to consider
briefly whether the repeal of the law would be
ndvisable, and what the effect would lie sip in
the Cotnmon School system. The main objects
its establishing the law was to guard more ef
fectualiy against the employment of incom pe•
tent teachers, and to establish n better channel
of communication between the State Depart
ment and the various branches of the system.
It is well known than previous to the passage
of the law creating the office of County Super.

the !sewers of the youthful tided, nod cresting
within it a thirst for that which would ennoble
it and raise its possessor to the true position of
remolding, thinking, immortal befog, they
stupefied even the brightest intellects to such a
degree, that no after•training could repair the
evil. This lamentable state of affairs led the
true friends of education to attompt fe.
some meows be which to supply our sehouis
with persons more capable of discharging the
sacred duties pertaining to the office of teach

the result of their deliberations. That it has
not answered the expectations f.f its friends, in
every re!pect, no one will deny; but that it
large majority of the most intelligent and zea
lous friends of education out still its ardent
and unwavering friends, does not admit of a
doubt ; in fad, we have never seen stlything
bearing any resemblance to argument, against
it. The other recount suggested, as leading to
the enactment of the Law, was that the depart•
pent had no accurate means of aseertainieg
the operations of the system. It laud to

Sworn statement of David McCreary, of Na
tierTownship, Bedford county.
In April, 1856, as near as I can reinemember
a small pimple made its appearance on my up
per lip, which soon became enlarged and sore.
I used poultices 01 sorrel, and a wash or blue
vitro!, without effect. Finding the sore extend
ing I called on Dr. Ely, ul Seliellsburg, who
pronounced it CANCER, and prescribed a wash
of sugar of lead and bread poultices. Finding
these remedies of no avail. I called upon Dr.
Shaffer, of Davidsville Somerset county, who
also pronounced the disease Cancer and gavr
me internal and external remedies—the latter
consisting principally of caustic ; but all to no
per pose, as the disease continued spreading to
ward the nose. I next esed tt preparation of or
' scnic, in the form of salve. This fur a time
checked the disease, I tat the inflatumatiou soon
increased. I next called upon Dr. Statler of St.
t. tatrsvilte Bedlind county, who also pronoun
ced the disease to he Cancer, and applied a Salve
slid to be a never-failing remedy, but it bad no
effect whatever in checking the spread of the
sore. In December, of the same year, the dis
ease had eaten away a greater part el my upper
' lip, and had attacked the nose, when I went to
Cincinnati. where I consulted. Dr. IL S. Newton
of the Electic Medical College. He pronoun
ccd the disease ‘.a cutaneous Cancer, gamin
dueed by an inordinate use of mercury." He
applied mild zinc ointment, and gave me inter
nal remedies. Sly face healed up, but the in
!Imputation was not thoroughly removed, In
February, 18:4', he pronounced me cured, and
I left for Lome. 1i; April the disease again re
turned, and Sc, violent was the Dahl. that I could
not rest at night. Late in May I returned to
Cincinnati, and again placed myself under the
charge of Dr. Newton, with whom I remained
un,il September, during which time he used
every known remedy, and partly succeeded in
cheating the disease, but when I rot urned
home there were still throe discharging ulcers
upon city face. I continued using No wtou's
preparations, and also medicine that 1 got from
Dr. Ely, but the Caucer.continued growing un
