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. J. P. WICKERSIIAM, Superintendent Public Instruction. CHRISTMAS, 1879.
