I detuned the present system as a
I disgrace to the age.—[From report
; of proceedings of Bonbam Lyceum
' ill Enterprise.]
j We publish the above from two
1 democratic papers in North Texas,
I to show the drift of public senti
inent in regard to the present abor-
| tiou, dubbed the Free School law of
Texas. It has been practically test-
ed tor several months, aud the sys
tem is generally concluded to be a
miserable failure, and the law a bur-
lesque on the tree school system.
The nieru tact of only requiring pub-
lic schools to be taugbtfour months
in the year, should be of itselt suili
cient to condemn the present sys
tem, when we see the young States
Northwest, with not. halt theresour*
oes for a public school fund that
Texas possesses, conducting their
schools from seven to nine months
in the year. Wo are glad to see
the leading democrats disgusted
with the present law, for now we
have hopes ot an improvement in
the system, which will not make it
open to the censure and condemna-
tion of all who wish a liberal sys-
tem of free schools put in operation
in this State. We hope the legisla
ture at its next session will wipe
out this pretended system from the
Statute book.— Sherman Patriot.

The old ex-Emperor Ferdinand of
Austria having tasted some pike a
la. ina.tcl.lote, liked it so well that he
ordered a fres 1 supply. The mai/re
tPhotel sent up word that none was
left. "How much of it did you buy?"
inquired the emperor. ' Two hun-
dred weight, your majesty," was the
reply. "Well, then," muttered the
invalid potentate, "next time please
purchase half a pound more, so that
1 may have a second turn at it."
The wite ot A made us, Marie Vic
torie, Duchesse d'Aosta, is dying
at Turin; her physicians declare she
cannot live through the summer. Her
disease is an affection of the chest,
contracted, it is supposed, at the
time of her enforced night from Ma-
drid, when the gallant Spaniards
compelled her to make the journey
to Lisbon (thirty hours in thedepth
of winter) on the thirteenth day af-
ter the birth of her third child.
Mr. Charles Tappan, of Andover,
Me., writes to the Boston Trail-
cript that he once heard Aaron Burr
make this uncomplimentary allusion
to the tather of his country: "He
was a mean-spirited fellow, who
pretended to serve his country with-
out pay, while in tact he never
bought a quill for that country with-
out charging twice what it cost."
Mr. Tappan contesses that he had
hard work to keep from reaching
across the table at which they were
dining and smiting the "old repro-
bate in the mouth."
Two years ago, in California, one
Joel Mansfield fired a pistol at Miss
Mary Hein, with woman slaughte-
rous intent, and then with suicidal
purpose did the same for himself.
Recovering, he was three times tried
for the attempted murder of Miss
Mary, and three times did the con-
scientious and sympathetic jurors,
after the ordinary manner of such
functionaries in such cases, fail to
agree. f?o the court told Joe Mans
field to go about his business. A
short time ago he made it part of
his business to see Mary again. And
this time he had his heart in his
hand (so to speak-) instead of his
pistol. This mild manner ot address-
ing her mollified Miss Moll, and,
with or without the usual blushes,
she consented to become, and she is
now Mrs Joel Mansfield.
