9IORDK T LEWIS, Chairman,
To School Dlrectora.
A circular has bt-en sent to me from the
State Department respecting the education
of indigent children, made orphans by the
war. It is denrous to know the number
there are in this County, thai provision may
be made for them, should it meet with the
approval of the Legislature. The Secretary
of each board of Directors is requested to re
p rt t<> me the number and age of those in
their respective districts at or before the 15th
of April neit. By prompt action this can
be d me ; we all have an interest in so hu
mane a tneusuie.
I take this occasion of complying with a
request made by several of our citizens to
call attention to an article in the School law
requiring Directors, to post up at least teii
written or printed hand bills in the most
public places in their respective districts,
gi r ing an account of the moneys received and
disbursed for school purposes etc. Should
the notices be sent to tue publishers of our
County papers, I doubt not but that they
would cheerfully insert them as they are of
interest to all.

The folio wing is the C rcular referred to
dueatious Respecting the Education of In
digent Children made Orphans by the
war, to be answered by Secretarial
of School Hoards.
The Governor, in his annual message, urges upon
the Legislature] the claims of " the poor orphans of
our sulaiers, who have given or shall give their lives
to the county in this crisis," ani expresses the opin
ion, " that their maintainance and education should
be provided for by the State." Of the justice of
tnis claim no one for an inst .nt can doubt. The
first step toward carrying out this hunane sugges
tion of his Excellency, is to ascertain the number ot
■ ch children in the State.
This can best bo accomplished by the officers of
the school boards, in the several counties and cities.
It will be an act of benevolence that will result in
good to those who have been made widows and or
phans by the war. You are, therefore, requested ot
forward to this Department, answers to the follow
ing questions, vis .
Ist. What is the number of indigent children in
your school district, whose fathers have been killed
or have died in the military or naval service of the
United States ?
2d. Are there anv institutions of learning in your
country, that will undertake to provide lor the main
tainance and education of a number of said orphans
if security be given that all reasonable expenses
shall be p>id by the aitate?
3d. If there are any such scl ools, how many chil

It is highly important that this circular, with the
questions answered, be returned promptly by the

matter- They may thereby bring joy to many e

A V\ ashmgion correspondent of a New,
York Journal whose statement is ccrrobora
ted from other sources, writes as followes :
"The effort made by the humanitarians to
get r d of a cargo of free colored people has
been eminently successful. In April last—
under the banner of Lincoln Colonization
four hundred and fifty of these unfortunates
were shipped to the'lsland of A Yacte. and
yesterday afternoon three hundred and sixty
eight were returned to this District. The
total i imi V r ctsinjid by ltd treatment
was eight}-two, and tie w i o'e of them
testify that their sufferings have been indes
crdable. The amount appropriated by the
last Congress, f..r putting down the rebellion,
bv means of this littlo speculation was six
hundred thou-and dollars. How much of
the money remains unexpected, how soon an
other of these humane and profitable experi
tnents will he made, and who of our excess
ively loyal citizens will have the fingering of
the money, sre questions not yet decided.
