We devoted a part of two Dys the latter part of the week to visits to the grammar schools and Ard the High school and were highly pleased with the appearance of the schools and the Prog Reaa which the pupils Memed to have nude in the attainment of knowledge. The first school we visited is the one kept by or. J Charles Milliken on Cedar Street. This school has Toen under or. Milliken s charge or a Nuu her of years and in the manage me Tofit he has gained not Only the love of his pupils but the conf Jence and esteem of the Community. The present Examina Tion did not detract the reputation he in just it enjoys. The answers of his pupils in the Trio us branches of their studies were prompt Clear and Shew that or. Milliken Hud not forgotten to impress upon their minds the 1 necessity of thoroughness while their Gen eral deportment was most satisfactory. The grammar school kept by or. Hiram 11. Brogdon on Sullivan Street a school similar in Grnde to that kept by or. Midi in Jet not so favourably to no Irwin Good class of scholars was next visited and Here too we were agreeably surprised with the Good order and promptness of the school. Or. Bragdon appears to to a very successful teacher and the school under his charge promises to be if it is not already equal to that kept by or. Milliken. The in his school Are m t perhaps Quito so far and j Vance us in or. Milliken s school but so fur As they Hud Gono there was manifested an equal degree of thoroughness and was equally As creditable to the eff it of the teacher. We were present Only a portion f the time during the examination of Tho scholars in the High school under the charge of or. Horace Piper. Or. Piper has the reputation of being one of the most Succes Ful eachers in the state and to certainly takes unwearied pains with his pupils. The examination on this occasion was it most satisfactory and alike creditable to both Schou a and teacher. Soto of the exercises in the higher crunches of Flo mathematics were inheres ing showing As they did the attain a ments of the scholars to he unusually Good. We were also struck with the Merit of some of the Pic s of composition which were in the presence of the Corn Mitten. Bidder Ford maintains a Good Ion abroad for. The excellence of her Public schools and he i deserving of it. There is no town or i j in the state which has exceeded her in the amount of appropriations for schools and there is no place where the schools Are under wore successful or popular teachers those who Havo had the management of them in times past and under whose direction they have grown up into usefulness while they hate the pleasing satisfaction of seeing them in a prosperous condition Aro also entitled to the warmest thanks of the people. As the schools Are now arranged not Only can a Good English education be obtained by pupils from ill tanks in ?, but even the poorest boy can receive such instruction As shall fit him to enter College or make himself acquainted with the higher branches of study there is nothing that pass so Well in any Community As Public schools. The Money appropriated for Tacui is u Good investment yielding the greatest and most desirable dividends a Rich Harvest virtue intelligence and happiness a Community can hardly do too much for them or respect too highly the efforts of the teachers to whom they Are entrusted. Our English difficulties. We publish in Ano her column one of the articles from the London times lit More notable one which has called out an uneasy feeling in the commercial circles Here As Well As in great Britain relative to the state of affairs Between that and our own government. It is qui e apparent not Only from Thi article but from the tone of the Washington correspondence of the n. Y. Papers that some difficulties have occur red Between the two governments which May Lead to lengthened correspondence but can hardly Lead to More serious consequent i Cea. The Clayton treaty has we believe owing to the different construction put upon it by the two governments Given Rise to ome diplomacy and letter writing Between Lite authorities of Oach. If the Clayton treaty is really no treaty at All it having been practically repudiated by both govern munis thin Are not by Weie and we hardly know Why England should complain or interfere with our Central America or Range no. We wish to reach California in the most expeditious Way and without being subject to Petty vexations and a it it a More convenient just now for our peo pie to Crosa the isthmus or through Cen ill Aro in the or i Lurt full it can Dri i h the authorities of Central America i t one that we Ough to be it Liberty to take provided it affects no real rights of foreign Power. We Are not aware that there u any disposition on the part of great Britain to prevent this but to Way the least the aug mentation of her Fleet in the West indie at this time looks a utile like menacing it is said by some that their exists a secret in Partite treaty Between England France and Spain guaranteeing to Spain to the last the Possession of Cuba. England and France want a Spanish legion in the Crimea. Sain wants to keep Cuba hence it is in Fenell that the Fleet in the Gulf of Mexico a a net tits to the army in the East. In re pm to lie american fillip a luring which no much excites the lie of the time it it difficult to Tell from in time article what particular portion of her Mii jetty s do minions it supposes a in the Moat danger. I it a hinted that " aware Ireland a the oh-1 Jet aimed at by the till busters they Are Iriah filibusters and the time talks of intercepting them in " my Ocean if they Are not prevented from sailing by learning the fact that great Britain Haa a Fleet upon the look out for them. As to the idea of invading Ireland if John Bull a troubled about shia he May Dismus the notion at once. All this spluttering of the time is lost. Undoubtedly there Are go to Many Irish " patriots " in the country who would not Caie " divil a bit if there wan a 10 kicked up some How. And some them be trying their hand in gelling up one but that their efforts will Avail any thing a All mistake. We suppose that i he Story of Nii Iii a invasion in made out the operations of the Mataya Culetu Iri i Emigrant Aid society who issued ail Edresa to their fellow countrymen in Auguat last telling them to hold on and orm in each city1 and town of the United ates auxiliary Loci Eticy for the purpose of living a grand scheme of revolutionizing Reland when the scheme comes along. Rhe address is Wordy and plan of operations j beautifully vague. 11 we do not counsel you 10 lorm a Oil Buster Inu be Aljue or raise an army of inva lion under the Shadow of the Atara and to Ripe where we have found shelter and Protection. We deprecate the violation of nov Law in the land in which we live. You will torn time to Lime be advised of the course of action to pursue. We now a a you to form in each City and town in he United slates a Branch of the Riith Emigrant Aid society a semble in each locality at once avoid All Titei ape Ching go to work communicate with us we will Forward no Charters and in tru Tiona to form 1 auxiliary Aid societies elect your own officer appoint the most in ods Ible men in your locality a treasurer. Avoid All useless expenses and Parade. Work diligently and earnestly. Report to us Tho names of your subscriber and amount of Money paid in. We in turn will report to the supreme directory when elected and thus there will to a Unity of action and we shall at All times know on h and re our and when the moment for action comes our leaders will not be working in doubt and Dai Kuess the general impression is that this enter Orize is cot Unia Aoi Iutta it of. Randy out of Hia earnings for the Benefit of lasy Ayi Salors. It is altogether too absurd to sup pose that this Irish affiliation is at the Bott pm of the movements of the British govern ment. The real trouble is in something else. Something has stirred up Tho British lion but what it is we cannot Tell until fur ther developments. Our people Are for peace if it can be maintained with Honor and to believe the same May be said of the people of great Britain. If the authorities of either nation needlessly create trouble in the expectation that the two countries Are to engage in a War for the fun of the him or to Subserve their personal selfish Purpo a and be sustained in such work they will find themselves disappointed. The Purchase of Cuba. We find in the new York courier n letter from London which peaks very confidently o the possibility of acquiring Cuba by Pur Chase. The or incr admits that lord pal Merton will talk of the necessity of pre serving Culm to Spain lest the United state acquire undue preponderance in the West but adds Tho letter if the United states will give two Hundred millions of dollars of four per cent Stock Ono half to be applied to the liquidation no the foreign debt of Spain and the o her half to Tho liquidation of the Home d by his lord ship s objections go for Tho Fol lowing financial statements will serve to show the feasibility of Tho undertaking about three years ago Spain decreed without in any Wuy consulting her bondholders. That As she had nut Phi i any interest for Many years that Slio would not pay it except by reducing Tho interest on the Capi Tal 1mm five per cent Down to three per cent., and by funding the arrears into a Pas Ive debt to Liacomo Active in proofs of Ticino it now i represent i thu -c9.000 000 Active Throe or cents j730.s. Justice to Tho agent requires us 10 a that so far As the statement related to him it was incorrect. The fact occurred us we Rel item them but the Young lad our apprentice upon whose authority the fact were Given Matook another person in the counting room Lor the agent and it is al so fair for a to say that we Are convinced upon enquiry and investigation that no in Ference prejudicial to the willingness of the agent or any other Poison in the counting room to do a a neighbourly kindness would be Correct. The refusal was thu result of a misapprehension or inadvertence which is perhaps As much regretted by those who gave it As it was a matter of Surprise and irritation to us when the facts came to our knowledge. We Are glad to know and feel that partisan bitterness and the remembrance of political strife has not placed us As we supposed it had out of the Way of receiving from political opponents those Little acts of kindness which recognize a com Mon humanity and a Universal brotherhood and without which the life of an editor Lia ble As he is to be misrepresented and his motives questioned would be hard indeed. Under the circumstances the correction is no less a duty to others than it it a pleas ure for us to make. ? Mem Marcus Staples land Salk. The land advertised for Sale by or.

A Small lot of land situated a shia i Trust be equal in value to a farm to he country of the common aide. We inst hat the Aale will be Well attended. For Torii Cultra As to the Tine of the Day Van it will take place &o., see the Adver moment in the paper. Product of the United 8tatee, 1655. According to Tea speech a of Iloa. Edward Everett and Ion. Or. Winthrop there were raised i oat year in the United state 400 nillion i Zabela of Oala 175 million Hua Hela of whet 1000 million Bushela of Corn 15 million tone of Hay 1,600 Mil Mioc i Ounda of motion. At present Price it will be perceived that Cotton i of minor importance when com pared with various other product. The Talue of either oat or Hay a nearly to co that of Cotton wheat three Timea and Corn eight Timea the value of Cotton. And yet with the Cotton Cracy of the North and i to Aveo Crecy of the South everything Mutt yield to the Cotton interest. The free Domain Muat is free no longer the Righta of Man Are a nothing when weighed with the Aham democracy Ootton and the Union. Hat against Cotton. Not. Urt Gniady that the grata crop of of the country i not properly appreciated. No crop he Hui. Ipp Roncari to cur a spontaneous yield and none yield to urge a profit. The Hay crop of the United states in 1850 was Orer 13. Q00 000 Tona that for 1855 he estimate at 15,000.000, which was Worth $150,000 000 while the whole Cotton crop is valued a Only $120 000,000. Of Thia crop More than nne Hull it produced by Tho four autes now York which yields one fourth of the whole Ohio and Illinois. The grass crop which is used for pasturage is at least ii that Thi single Herb a Worth annually Over three Hundich million dollars i few pipe a Linro that them of new i York is Worth Moro than its wheat and yet statistics Chow that such is the Case Novark Mercury if these statistics Are Correct the grata crop of the country is Worth s23.000.000 adore than the Cotton crop it ii therefore in reality much the largest and most in portent interest of Tho two. The Only Dif. For Ceis that one is Tho product of slave al alter and the other of free. To Seo no reason therefore Why we should not have an aristocracy of Hay Lor a a we have now of Cotton. There a nothing More Respecta he in producing Cotton Thun there it in grow in gnat. Both Are the production of the soil and the latter is As necessary to the Comfort of Man and the Prosperity of ii country a the for nor. It May be thut the fast that one is Tho product of Tho labor of a c Una of men held in Honda go in violation of the Lawa of nature and of god and who receive no compensation for their toil while Tho other is Tho product of free labor invents the occupation of the Cotton grower with ii dignity and " reaper ability " which or its growing does nut possess. But to doubt whether it will to so considered when men s Paa Tiona become Calm enough for them to look upon the institution of s Avory in Ita True Light the world will one Day mos certainly learn to consider it quite a inn Ruhle for Man to earn his own Sunna Tevice by the sweat of Hia brow a to a Baitt upon the unrewarded labor of Wihera one receives the Sanction of Providence and the other a three Itene with its Curto. Those i who contribute the Moat to the wealth of a nation and the happiness of the people Are entitled to and will receive the highest i ice of Honor in to opinion of All Good Mon every where. By we know of no reason Why the Democrat should complain hat we nit rep resent its views in Rogard to the propagation of slavery. We have been speaking about territories belonging to the United Stater not of states. territories Are now Iree they Are Tho common properly of Ivio Union and subject to such Laws As con Gress May choose to pass for the r govern ment. To assert that the citizens of these territories have Tho right to form site constitutions and determine that slavery shall exist in the states so formed is practically placing upon an Equality with free Dom and squirm As Tho Democrat May it Sinnot get Over Tho Arguin ont. We understand perfectly Well the sophistry of the Democrat and the manner in which it tries 10 Fet Over the Point by its advocacy of so latter sovereignty. We hold that con Gress has the right to prohibit slavery in the territories and further that the right should be exercised Ond we have nothing for Tho person who advances the idea that any people May establish slavery. The Man who does Ihus believe and at the nine time asserts that he i a Democrat is not such a Democrat As was Thomas Jeffer son. Commerce or the United states. The Secretary of the treasurer has completed the statistics of Commerce and navigation Tor the fiscal year ending june 30th, 1855, and we find a summary of it in the journal of Commerce which remarks that a care Ful study of it will a Floral the Best possible Relief for Tho foolish panic which has prevailed in some Parta of our country during the Lam few the imports at All the ports of the United slates including of course California and Oregon for the i Cal year ending Juno 30 a 1855.
