LANDS FOR SOLDIERS.
The land law or July 15, 1870, pissed
by-Congress at its last session, which
grants lands along railroads to soldiers
and sailors, reads as follows :. •

There are other sections in the law

Jules Favre's Second Circular•
In his second circular to the French
diplomatic representatives, dated Sep
tember 17, M. Jules Favre says :
- Twill-atm up our (entire policy. 'ln
acceptingllie p6rilous task ,which was
imposed upon us by the fall of the Im
perial, Government we had but one
idea—namely,. to defend our territory,
to save-our honor, and to give back to
the nation the power emanating from
itself, and which it alone could exer
cise. We should have wished that this
great act might haVe been completed
without transition, but the first ne
cessity was to 'face the enemy. We
have not the pretension to ask disin
terestedness of Prussia. We take ac
count of the feelings to which the great
ness of her losses and the natural exal
tation of victory have given rise.
These feeling.s explain the violence of
the Press, vdhick. we are far from con
founding with the inspirations of states
men. These 'latter will hesitate to con
tinue an "impious war, in which more
than 200,000 men have already fallen.
To force conditions upon France which
she could not accept would only be to,
compel a continuance of the war. It is
objected that the Government is with
out regular power to be represented. .It
is for this reason that we immediately
summon, a freely-elected Assembly.
We do not attribute to ourselves any
other privilege than that of giving our
soul, and our blood to our counrty, and
we abide by its sovereign judgment.
It is, therefore,. not authority reposed
in us for a day. It is immortal France
uprising before . Prussia—France di
vested of the shroud of the Empire,
free, generous, and ready to immolate
herself for right and liberty, disavow
ing all political conquest, and all viole
propaganda, having no other amb' o
than to remain mistress ofterself, a
to develop her moral and material for
ces, and to work fraternally with her
neighbors for the progress of civiliza
tion. It is this France which, left to
her free action, Immediately asks, the
cessation of the war; but prefers its
disasters a thousand - times to dishonor.
Vainly those who set loose a terrible
scourge try now to escape the crushing
responsibility by falsely alleging that
they yielded to the wish of the coun
try. This calumny may delude people
abroad, but there is no one among us
who does not refute it as a-work of re
volting bad faith: The motto in the
elections of 1869 was peace and liberty,
and the plebiscitum itself adopted it as
its programme. It is true that the ma
jority of the Legislative Body , cheered
the warlike declarations of the Duke of
Gramont, but a few weeks previously
it had also cheered the, peaceful decla
rations of M. 011ivier. A majority
emancipating from personal power be
lieved Itself obliged to follow docilely - 1
and voted trustingly ; but there is not
a sincere person in Europe_ who could
affirm - that France freely consulted
made war' against Prussia. I do xi6?t
draw the conclusion from this .that we
are not responsible. We have been
wrong, and are cruelly expiating our
-having bril9rated a Government which
ledus-to ruin. Now we admit the ob
ligation to repair by 'a measure of jus
tice the 'it has done ; but if the
Power with which it has so seriously
Compromised us takes advantage of our
misfortunes to overwhelm us, we shall

Will remain well understood - that it is
the nation, properly represented in a
freely elected Assembly, that this Pow
er wishes to destroy. This being the
question raised, , each one will do his
duty. Fortune has been hard upon us,
but she is capable of unlooked-for revo
lutions which our determination will
call forth. * Europe begins . to be moved,
and sympathy for us is being rewaken
ed. The sympathies of foreign cabinets
console us and do us honor. They will
be deeply struck by the noble, attitude
of Paris in the midst of so many terrible
causes for excitement. Serious, confi
dent, ready for the utmost sacrifices the
nation in 'arms descends into the arena
without lookink back ' and having
before its,eyes this' simple but great
duty, the defense of its homes and in
dependence. I request you, Sir, to en

sentative of the Government to which

idea of our disposition.

I have noticed two articles in your columns of
late--one entitled " Girls Allowing Themselves
to be Handled," and the other, " Hands OM"—
The writers of both, no doubt, think that they
are doing a great work for the "girls ;" but I do
not like the manner
r and style in which this ques
tion is discussed. -i The spirit of both articles
holds woman in the;position of a slave to the re
quirements and dictation of man, instead of !res
ting her as an equal. They call upon girls to be.
modest and discre4 as though these were virtues
that our boys did not need to learn. I'ho groat
mass of teaching that our yoting of both sexes
receive, is, that a boy is at liberty to lead a girl
astray, if he ean, and the responsibility of doing
,right is'all with the girl. Oh, for shame upon
such a civilization. If man is the stronger in
intellect, as all - of that class aver, is it not his
duty to protect and defend, instead of being the
instrument of 'destruction to. the weaker vessels 7
,And now I call upon every parent, upon every
teacher in our land ; to help mitigate these evils,
by teaching the young of both flexes that they
were created equal; that the, girls, of America
have right}, which it is the duty of the strong
minded men to respect; that if wo desire the good
of humanity, we must seek to )make women and
men equal. A FRIEND.
Editor Agitator: I have always felt
a deep interest in our Common Schools, and have
been so much interested in the Teachers' Insti
tute, lately held in your place, that I cannot for
bear sending a few of my thoughts to be pre—
served in ink. I was there only a part of the
time, but heare'and saw enough to amply repay
me for my trouble. I was surprised to find so
largo an attendance at the Institute, when your
Fair, races and theatricals were in session; so
many anxious faces straining to catch every
sound that fell from the lips of those who were
older and more experienced. I was present when
Mr. Wickersham gave his lecture. If the Direc
tors and other school officers treasure up what
Mr. Wickersham said, and put it in practice, it
will be of infinite benefit to our schools.
I was gratified to hear Mr. Wickersham speak
so highly of our Representatives. And let me
lay hero that the report of the Institute does
both Mr. Wickersham and Mr. Niles injustice.—
Not intentional on the part of the reporter,for he
cannot be expected to catch every word that falls
from a speaker's lips, or make each. soutane° read
as it was uttered. •
kr. Wickersham, after speaking of the hearty
support ho had always received from tho mem
bers from this county, said very near the follow
ing words :
" I see that one of your members of the Legis
lature, who resides at this place, is not present
this evening, and I can say. to you, what out of
modesty I could not say if ho were here.. In
him I have always found an ardent supper* of,
any measures intended to promote the cause of
education. I feel myself greatly indebted to
him for his efforts to obtain proper legislation for

of Mr. Wickersham did not put in his report.—
