J Cullu fix it has been very truly observed serve to Mark the Triumph of society Over the devices i mischievous violence of recalcitrant citizens. Por some months past until j Quitel recently it was generally feared that society would Tonias the Opportunity of parsing Ner Inu Manover the person who stole the �1,306 from the Bank of new Saath Wales. Week after week passed and the detectives Wiere i unable even to propose a theory yet the propounding of theories is a Branch of their profession in which they Are. Usually no Means unskillful. Nor is it at All Clear that the authorities would Ever have succeeded in detecting the thief bad not happened to a perfect Tyro in the Art of thievery. In Short. Victor Lewis Tott Send unconsciously perhaps but no less certainly gave himself up to Justice. To take a Large portion of the boils to a Bank in the same town where the robbery was committed was certainly not the act of a calculating rogue. The subsequent conduct -0f this miserable Young Man was even More eminently calculated to serve ffie7 ends of Jii Stice if he had not confessed his guilt the Case against him would tit have been stronger than Many in which juries have returned verdicts of not guilty whatever his state of. Mind before he made him self the object of suspicion it seems Clear that when he found himself in the hand of the police became a prey to great mental perturbations. He not Only accused himself but made a tote meet imply Active of a wholly and. Obviously innocent fellow clerk. He could scarcely such an unmitigated coun Drel As to do this latter of simple malice. A More National hypothesis is that he was. Overcome with Surprise stupor a sense of utter inability to beat alone the Brunt of the charge against him. To have a companion in his Guilfu is the controlling desire of the Young criminal As witness the Schoolboy who convicted of some breach of discipline whimpers out Tommy Jones Billy Smith didst too \ we have no wish to extenuate of palliate Townsend offence but merely to put it before the Public in what we conceive to its True Colour. Robbery of employer is undoubtedly a Moat heinous crime it is much More common we Are afraid than the criminal calendars would Lead people to infer and in whatever form it is found whether As embezzlement larceny it should put Down with1 a firm hand. The Peculiar condition of modern civilisation renders it necessary that the Rale of Mem it Tuum should very strictly enforced As Between employee and employer. Almost every Man is in either one position . The other a great Many Are in both. A commercial society like ours would collapse if Bankers merchants and tradesmen could not Trust their employees. No doubt his honour the chief Justice took certain facts of this i kind into consideration in passing sen tence yesterday on town end. It can hardly said that his honour erred on the Side of mercy. Seven years penal servitude is not infrequently As much a is allotted to a More hardened criminal. The last Bank defaulter fore the Brisbane criminal court received nine months imprisonment and the crime of which he was convicted was Cdr mainly Opal Black a character As in the present Case. It would appear in fact that our judges Are not guided any very close Rule in this matter of passing sentences and this is All the m Oro to deplored since the executive Are thu8. Often Givon an excuse for inter Fering with sentences and interferences of this sort Are Apt to grow into a dangerous practice. The second annual report of the Secre tary for Public instruction is a comparatively ponderous Tome the contents of which can hardly said to commensurate with the bulk of the volume. The leading impression after perusing that when the Colony is peopled up to the school machinery therein Laid Down it will have advanced very considerably beyond its present state of population. It must allowed How Ever that the reports themselves contain More amusing Reading than is usually to met with in such papers and however frivolous the impression May Beem it is impossible to resist the idea that the erudite and estimable gentle men who furnished them in default of facts wherewith to fill their pages have been led irresistibly into a moralising vein. Indeed a great portion of some of the subsidiary reports Are simply directions and advice to the teachers in regard to their walk and conversation. It surely is scarcely necessary. To set in motion a whole department to enable those in charge of scholars. To learn How to demean the Basel ves and we presume that no one is desirous to dispute the fact that the Quality of. Tho teachers is second Only in importance to the regularity of the pupils we Are gravely informed that a teacher is not merely the keeper of a grammar shop a calculating Mill Bat that he must a Man of Strong will Force of character sympathy patience Hope and Many other excels Lent Virtues that the official who Drew the picture must have sighed to think How Small a Chance he had of meeting with a teacher after his own heart.

Wholesome remarks Are made upon the failings into which As a class they Are Mot prone to fall. They Are exhorted to humility the solemn Assurance that constant con tact with children is Apt to make them childish ii Stater client which might entertained if schoolmasters never spoke to any but their pupils but still More awful and alarm ing is the warning that the Man wh6 is. All pedagogue delights to hear him self talk Andi bores one this com plaint it is said to think is not confined to professors of the three e From a general View it would appear that there Are a very great Many schools but not Suc Havery satisfactory suppl of scholars Strnot that sorne1 of the sch ools do not seem to Wiell attended for under the. Heading of average daily attendance in the one school Inay to the cheering Rumber of 215 but also the less Gratifying total of nine five boys and four girls. The grand total of the average daily attendance is Nineteen thousand nine Hundred and forty five but As this includes Testate schools. The non vested. Trovi Binal schools it does not explain the somewhat Small appearance of the average. There is a great Deal of room it would seem for modification in the system system in carried out in one place a complaint is made that in consequence of the spelling Beitra taught orally tote word saw on paper could not distinguished from the word Wab fact which seems to denote some sort of confusion Iti the juvenile Nii Iii. to difficulty seems also to. Be experienced. In the process of teaching Reading a difficult which is probably familiar to All who Hayes Auto conduct beyond the Alp Iab to. I nere is no get Ting the pupils to speak out the Curi Ous timidity which often deprives the briton of the use of his Tongue seems to have descended with unusual virulence on the Young colonials. Again1, lamentation a made Over the fact that grammar is taught and Learnt but not talked a phenomenon which May noticed among Sharp lads in the Rural districts fit ,.wtio not infrequently have two dialtect.8,tone for use before the master and theother for the playground. The object lessons also Are not quite what they should but of this Point Wear not in a position to give an opinion j As object lessons Are the outcome of quite recent civilization and Are scarcely More than on their trial but if the course described is the one usually adopted it can scarcely expected to successful. It is hardly fair per a haps to criticise the various min Utiss too narrowly but a bran Cliff the go Hemment that has grown portly must needs draw upon itself inquisitive and sometimes not Overr respectful scrutiny. The report is tool Long to taken figure figure to treated in a single article but As we have said it is hard not to draw the1 inference that the Mill is too huge for the grist that goes through it. Even with the consideration ? before our eyes that some of the schools Are Over one Hundred and sixty Miles apart there certainly is but slender evidence to show that All thebe 135 pages Are necessary rather that the very considerable outlay described therein is required to keep in working order the schools which valuable and indispensable As they Are have surely not yet grown to ? such Dimen Sions that it is requisite to add another portentous department to the grievously denied Public resources. There Are Many other considerations suggested . The report which Are Worth noticing. Such As the Standard of. Examination for the masters and the number of teachers.
