The first annual report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction was rendered in January. Some of the facts stated in this report are worthy attention. The date of the returns from the different counties was Nov. 1, 1847. There were at that time in 18 counties, 41C organized school districts. Iu 22 counties, were 20,-888 pupils over 5 and under 21 years of age. In 10 counties were 2439 pupils at school. In 6 counties, $1742 31 had been paid for school purposes. 74 was the highest number of school districts in any county, and they were in Van Buren. The highest number of pupils, under 21 and over 5, in any county, was in Lee, and was — - v,r    * rMtfriisgton is the *«*»t of justice for Des Moine* •eauntr. *nd coa tains about 3500 inhabitants.

The permanent school fund, Nov. 1, 1847, invested in mortgages or real estate by the Fund Commissioners, w'as $44,031 i0.— The amount of permanent fund not invested was $9,958 10. In Dcs Moines Co. $8,615 77 was invested, and $51851 was not invested. The highest amount invested in any county was in Mahaska, and was $16,770 39. Of the school sections, the 16th in every township, 17,3S5 acres have been sold for $33,674 04. The lOili sections have thus, it will be seen, been sold at $1 93 an acre, on an average. Mr Harlan adds $75,792 25 for sales of land from the $ million acres donated to this State by From the Baltimore Patriot. TAYLOR AND HARRISON. On reading the late letter of General Taylor to Captain Allison, I was forcibly impressed with the similarity of the <(great cardinal principles” therein avowed, to those advocated by General Harrison in 1848. The hero of Buena Vista stands now precisely upon the same ground then taken and maintained by old Tippecanoe, il the nominee of the Whig national Convention. Let us institute the comparison: First—President should not be the slave of party. geh. tatlor,—“I am a Whig, but not an ultra Whig. If elected, I would not be the mere President of a party. I would endeavor to act independent of party domination.”—(Letter to Capt. Allison.) gen. iiarrison.—“Iftlie opinion I have given of the motives of the framers of the Constitution in giving the veto power to the President, is correct, it follows that they never could have expected that he who was constituted the umpire between contending parties should ever identify himself with the interest of one of them, and voluntarily raze himself from the proud eminence of a leader of a nation to that of chief of a parly. I can easily conceive the existence of a state of things by which the chief magistrate of a State may be forced to act upon party principles; but such a course is entirely opposed to all the obligations tchich the Constitution im- iied States.” your support?

Harrison'* patriotism or party devotion, because he refused to give pledges,or “impressions upon matters of policy, which may be right to day and wrong to-morrow:” why then should you object to Gen. Taylor for pursuing the same course? He has declared that he is a Whig. You know* that he is honest, and as sincere as he is brave—will you then hesitate to believe what he has assertetll And if yo^believe it, what further pledge do you require? Gen. Taylor stands upon the broad platform of true Whiggery and sound republicanism. If elected, he will be the President of the country, not its Dictator. There will be no usurpations of executive powers, no vetoes of bills for paying the just debts of the nation, or of measures demanded by the interests and the wishes of the people. The will of the nation as expressed by their representatives in Congress, will not be stifled by the caprice of the Executive. We shall have 110 more Presidential wars made without the authority of CongTess. How eloquently did the patriot of Ashland, in his address delivered in 1840, to the citizens of his native county of Hanover, warn his countrymen against the “encroachments and the usurpations of the Executive branch of the Government.”— If there was alarm then, how much has it given of tbese gross blunders, to the amount of hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. The committee on Ptlbliè Expenditures on Wednesday, presented an elaborate re- narge mage by Mr Rockwell in his second speech. From the discussion, it would appear that this report has been in the possession of the Department for about two w*eeks; but no explanation or denial has yet been made. A report of the minority of the committee is now promised. If that report fails to furnish a full and satisfactory explanation of these discrepancies and mistakes, the condition of the Treasury will présenta most serious question for the consideration of Congress and the country. 1    1    r ,1 „„ 1, in nil I    of    undergoing    a    great    change from soon have a school fund, adequate to nil .(#    ^    inl    opiuioM ol F.

Within, too, what a scene! No amusement, employment, or pursuit of man on earth, but, w*as here being carried on with a vehemence that excited his unutterable amazement. “There the young and lovely still swam through the mazes of the giddy dance! There the panting steed still bote his brutal rider through the excitements of the goaded race! There over the midnight bowl, the intemperate still drawled out the W’nnton song or maudlin blasphemy? The gambler plied foreter hi* endless game, and the slaves of Mammon toiled through eternity their bitter task; whilst all the magnificence of earth paled before that which now met his view.” He soon perceived that he was amongst oldacquaintances,whom he knewtobe dead; and each, he observed, was pursuing the object, whatever it was, that had formerly engrossed him, when finding himself relieved of the presence of his unwelcome conductor,he ventured to addressghis former friend Mrs D—whom he taw sitting, as had been her wont on earth, absorbed at loo—requesting her to rest from the game, and introduce him to the pleasure* of the place, which appeared to him to be very unlike w’hat he had expected, and indeed an extremely agreeable one.

On the 11th of May Mr Rockwell made a second speech, in which he pointed out numerous other errors of the Secretary of the Treasury. The following are only a portion of these mistakes, as shown by the report of one of the Committee on Public Expenditures, (Mr Strohm,) referred to by Mr R. in his speech: “The discrepancies shown by bringing down the statement to the 1st December, some person, had held out great promise in his boyhood, and raised hopes which had been completely frustrated by his subsequent reckless dissipations. One morning, after returning from the annual festival, Mr Archibald B. having retired to bed, dreamed the following dream: He fancied that he himself was mounted on a favorite black horse, that he always rode, and that he was proceeding toward his own house—then a country seat embowered by trees, and situated upon a hill, now entirely built over, and forming part of the city—w hen a stranger, whom the darkness of night prevented his distinctly descrying, suddenly seized his horse's rein, saying, “you must go with me!” ¿‘*-1    ovo    tn.iS”    exclaimed    the 1847, in relation to these Treasury notes ! “And who are you issued under the two acta ot 1846 I young mail with a volley of oaths, whilst and 1847, arc as follow»:    i he struggled to free himself. “As to the amount of stock issued under “That you will see by and by, relurn-theact of July.1846, the report of the Sec- ! cd the other, m a tone that excited unac-retarvand thi statement of the committee , countable terror in the youth; who plung-differ $115 200.    i !**s sPurs *n*° h|S horse, attempted to “As to the stock issued under the act of j fly but in vain.

The Siamese twins are living in North Carolina, as fanners, and are both married. A correspondent of the Richmond papers, who has recently visited their home,writes some interesting details in relation to their domestic life. The twins can chop wood remarkably fast, four hands being an the axe at the same time. They also shoot at a mark or game with their four hands resting on the gun. They drive their horses forty miles, to Wilkes, themselves, and do any kind of work about the farm. Mrs Eng says her husband is very kind to the negroes, and that Chang is very severe with them. Mrs Eng is also belter disposed than Mrs Chang, and is the prettiest. Mrs Eng is very close anti saving, anti Mrs Chang is disposed to indulge in dress and various other expenses. rlhe tw ins rarely differ about dress, but often diiler in their ideas of purchasing negroes or land. The opinion of Eng is always the law, and Chang readily acquiesces. Eng does all the writing including the signing of notes and other important papers. Eng is one inch taller than Chang, anti C hang s wife is taller than Eng’s. Some old lady in the neighborhood, a few days ago, asked Eng which was the oldest? and he replied that he was just six months older than his brother. Well, says the old lady, I thought there was about as much difference, for you are purty considerable bigger than yottr brother. They are good on a joke, and the old lady was in earnest. They have a blacksmith shop on their farm, and a shoemaker's shop also. I saw a good sized frame house that they made, without any assistance, from foundation to roof.
