Some weeks since Tho following para Raph announcing the determination of the Utch government to reject the claim of cd inca Pap f 1_ a. Ii injuries Ai ged to have been sustained by him from Aid government first appeared in the papers. We have Given to the american governmental the particulars relating to this Natter and have insisted 011 this axiom inline Law of when a foreigner n our territory violates our Laws his crime nay justify his punishment but certainly lot his claim to we have from the first regarded this Jap. Gidson claim As we Are wont to re Ard every thing that smells of Humbug and it was our belief and Hope that it would and As speedily As it had sprung into being or government has abundant to do if it nil employ itself wisely without attempting o Settle All the disputes Between the restless adventurers of this country who leave their Rives and children it May be and go intone world to seek disputes and other Uncle Sain undertakes to just sol similar difficulties for his Prodi a sons we fear matters of far higher twill go sadly neglected. X let us advert briefly to the nature of this flair and Bee if it is not one of those which Promise to become site prevalent if the United suites government manifests a willingness to play the ands that ambitious and avaricious Avenir Casmay Deal out to it. Believing As inmates the whole affair to be a Humbug re confess we have not been very astute Inbe investigation of its history and have onto present a general outline As memory recalls the Story of the principal himself. A Pam w. M. Gibson is we believe Fiat Ives of Anderson District in this state. U any rate Jie resided there for a time Here was married and there buried his life not a great while subsequent to this utter event leaving his children in care of Lis father in Law he set out to try his Luck it adventure. After trying various Fields be at length became proprietor of a Small Shooner styled the flirt and started up a sea faring career. This was we think veral years after he had left his Home in Carolina and we Are not apprised that any me in this or any other state was acquainted with the incidents of the Captain s career or even of his whereabouts save those who might have been in his immediate Fame had not spread then a now. But to proceed. went on until be came within the jurisdiction of the dutch dynasty and subsequently within the Conine Sof a dutch prison of course the dutch contend that the is Uin. Violated heir Laws and of course the contain non Flaata err that Mynheer locked him up and seized his raft without cause. Tje question is there Reone of veracity Between him and the Utch Anthont Fec we Aio inclined to Ink albeit the Captain is one of our that tile statements of the tween Captain Gibson and Tho dutch Asci #. I � Toi Cut bum igers we Luik me Snoie Anair c cannot possibly result in anything More ii than a non suit. The accused pleads justification for his conduct and the accuser can i not prove the contrary. So the govern s ment of the United states must choose be a tween the respective statements of the Par t ties. If it accepts that of the Captain and t the dutch still persist in his dogged Bosti � Nncy a Chance May exist for another Grey t town achievement. T we would not be misunderstood. No f one can insist More strongly on the Protic n Tion by this government of its citizens a s Broad than we do. And at the same time to wis hold that when foreigners front any b country upon our soil tramples upon our p Laws lie should to promptly punished with c out regard to the strength or weakness to e til Tyor Friendship of that Power whose pro i Section he May claim lint we would al e Low other nations the same right to protect i their citizens and to punish ours when they to deserve punishment. Let the truth be t known before to undertake to enforce a v reparation of injuries which May exist Only t in fiction. N we would Iveigh in the strongest terms p against the idea of our government under p Vav Viii Iku Nav us Mich my u ventures without having first satisfied itself a beyond All question of the entire Justice of the ii claim. If it lends its ear to such stories eve t Ery time and its Strong Arm to the will of e every one Koszta affairs Borland com i plaints a Odinek frauds and Gibson to g Mances will be As plentiful As Golden med n als Gallant sea captains or thousands in the s Treasury. V poll Mojo Fluhr Tytla tiie subject of popular education has Long engaged the attention of every class of minds and is Well worthy of a continuance of such attention until t in glorious ends it contemplates shall have been secured. Very few have Ever had the audacity in a Republican latitude to question the propriety of general is a conceded a set tied Point. Upon the virtue of a people is sure y Laid the Corner Stone of a Republican fabric and general education is the Hist Means of polish and strength that can possibly be used in the preparation of that cannot believe that there is cite individual Bliss or National safety in in f Norance there May be a kind of pleasure accompanying a state of brutal in Norance but there is likewise a correspond ing degree of animal pain. Ignorance con attract disease and renders efforts to heal Only aggravate be of pain. No True philanthropist whose heart yearns to Sec the attainment of the highest destiny by his fellow Man a a race of beings can avoid being an advocate of general education. Yet As is often the Case in reference to momentous subjects it has not yet elicited that amount of labor. Win ii us importance demands and its fall development requires. In our own state it is True thousands Are annually expended for the promotion of this great work of popular enlightenment but sad to Tell As yet but Little Mark is left of the Progress made. One Hundred and seventy five thousand dollars it would seem annually appropriate might educate Ami substantially nearly if not quite All of the poor children in a South Carolina but yet few very few com to Parat ively examples can be shown of any o thing approaching a substantial education o from that source. There is nothing More t palpable than that Money will educate. The c children of the wealthy Are Abun Djit a Ron of t. This fact. The Money of the Rich will educate the children of the Rich. Then Why in nit that the Money of the Stato does not do More towards the education of the children a of the poor doubtless our reply will be c anticipated and it be said because the to 8 Ney of the state is not properly applied motive Power however Strong must be applied ratio Day or it will fail to move other to than its own weight. Money the. Motive w Power to the March Otain applied t in the right place and in the proper Way o else it will be naught but waste. O the present system offre schools is certain o by defective and in this the misapplication of the Means consists one of its greatest defects. The remedy we acknowledge n to be difficult of discovery and we w can hardly presume to claim the Honor d of having surmounted that difficulty we therefore have to remedy to propose at to present. But there is another cause which to must be removed before popular Educ Tion a can Advance As fast As it should Advant v. Tit to and it is by far the most formidable Obata Cle to its Progress. We Redan the Vapi of � a disposition on the part of parents torrid their children u has been said b and with considerable truth that where c Are the a Wicheta fam t lined re la r v re toe fourth of that class who might Bra the recipients of the Public Bounty and Tho Reau a that in very few neighbourhoods can Sua of Iii Xai and Ivill of of a Fanniah och i j n Wisp Vivus Wavu i iving salary be made and kept up it state will Only pay at a certain Fate for 1$ trial number of scholars who attend am lie Days they Are present and As this apr by exists on the part of Parent the Public school is almost always a killing business t he teacher. The result is few compete eachers will remain in the Field. If there re to could once arouse the grown u Nasses to a full sense of the weight of r possibility resting upon them in regard t he education of the Young the work woul in half finished already and its Early coir Cletion would be an inevitable consequent Ould to but get one generation of All Clasi s Well taught in the schools of commo English it would need no herculean Effort very year to keep the car moving Onward rom age to age. Having tasted and see lint education was Good the father and my her could not rest until sons and daughter Fere made partakers of the same great inf Mable Blessing. The work then must com Nence at the stump. Means to educate Ali Ioor must not Only be provided but the Ioor must be induced to accept the Benefit it ered them. It is a want of education Lone on the part of parents that causes the disposition to Send their children to schoo or no one need to too proud to accent Ai r education at the hands of Charity Mccaus be May in due time if he receive the git rat fully and improve it As he Shouk Tiro than ten fold repay the state in incr cd service to her interests by having the at Wantage of such gift.
