There is considerable said about en- acting laws compelling the people to ed- ucate themselves and or in other making education and telligence a test of the rights to partake in the affairs of government. While we agree with the first we would oppose a law that would fix a standard to which we should attain before we could eujoy the rights of and while it would seem in direct opposition to that we boast so much yet we believe we must educate or per- ish. A nation is justifiable in taking such measures as will preserve and per- petuate its civil and religious liberties. There is in this nation enough EDITORS me to sug- gest ttte name of J. W. Hammond a probable candidate for representative from this county in our next legislature.
