A most stalwart Republican organ, as
Its localty idicates, the Rutland (Vt.)
Herald , under the head "Victoiious
Cowards" speaks in the following words
of the temporizing of the Republicans
with the greenback question.
"The Republican party never behaves so
badly as when it has won a brilliant vic
tory by doing right; it always seems
• scared by its own success. After Meade
had won a great victory at Gettysburg lie
found Lee at Falling Waters; the swollen
river, waambehind the rebel; his troops
were so inspirit that two Vermont
Regiments beat a rebel brigade at Funks
town; every corporal in the army knew
that his commander ought to attack Lee:
but Meade was fearful that he might lose
his laurels, so he halted, and that fatal
halt added another dreadful year of blood
to the war, when it ought to have ended
there. To this temporizing spirit, which
is content to let well enough alone, we
owed the slaughter of the Wilderness,
Cold Harbor and Petersburgh. The
political mood of the Republican party to
day seems to be the military temper of
Meade; it seems so astonished at its own
financial success that it halts when it
should push its victory If the Democratic
party had a tithe of the intelligence that
they have courage, they would follow the
lead of Bayard to-day and rob the Republi
cans of the initiative for 1880."
IKir IMPORTANT TO SCHOOL DIREC.
TORS AND TAX PAYERS—The fol
lowing decision of the Superintendent of
Public Instruction is of great importance to
tax-payers as well as directors, as violation
of the law upon the subject will deprive di -
tricts of the State appropriation, and subject
Directors to severe penalties:
DEPARTMENT OK PUB. INS., I
Harrisburg, Pa., Dee. 1, 1879. )
There is but one time in the year when di
rectors can adopt a new series of text books
for the schools under their charge, or change
old ones, and that is between the time of
electing teachers and the opening of the
schools. Section 23, Act of MLV 1,1854, says:
44 That immediately after the annual election
of teachers in each school district of the state,
and before the opening of the schools for the
ensuing term, there shall be a meeting of the
directors or controllers and teachers of each
district; at which meeting the directors or
controllers shall decide upon a series of school
hooks, in the different branches to he taught
during the ensuing school year; which books,
and no other, shall be used in the schools of
the district during said period."
Such is the law. with this exception, that
hooks cannot now be changed more frequent
ly than once in three years.
