- ifat the" Watchman end State Journal. Remkrii on tkt importmei 0 State Institutions far tkt qualification 0 Bttmmntrt, It may bo hoped that the importance of the idieet will redeem the following observations from eetire ncgiecu u i on v-- oat, thai a government, whose constitution re-..:. Hie rational freedom of its subjects. - .k ,1A knnn for nernetuitv. tvitho'U a due en- . ..imminent nf nratlical education, than that ". one should attempt :o lift himself up by pulling ' " at his own boot-straps, v Free government is, emphatically, one that emanates from the people, for the people's benefit and the only one which human icason - mm find nrmimcnts to ill-tifv. That government which is not adapted to promote, equally, the interests of all, is dis- carded by nature's impartiality, as an insult to Tier beneficence. It lacks an indiapensible attribute of good government ; that of promo ting the highest good of the reatest possible number. - - - t , The necessity in which letrislation origin atcs, together with the indtfiiriitc peculiarities and defects or human character ana circum. stihees. subicct it. somewhat, to the modifies. tions of expediency. A spirit of local legislation and the institution of monopolies, can, : however, searcely be indulged with impunity -". to national prosperity. ' The only true principle of legislation is, to . adopt its entire population as wards of its be-ni6cent guardianship, looking to the people's weal for testimony to ils usefulness, and to 'the commendation of posterity for the consuuv mstinn of its elorv. . Political education should not, therefore, consist of, merely, the chronology or the an 'eedotea of history, but of a thorough acquain tancewith the physjeal, moral and intellectual rharaetAi of man. as displayed in the va. rious relations he hear.1 his, fellow man. . Unnce the individual, who has not been dis ciplincd to profound reflection, upon human character and habits, is as unqualified fur legislation as he, who il yet ignorant of the pri-mative clement of arithmetic, is to apprehend the geometrical theorems of Euclid. Necessity or accident may have wrortght out a nation's freedom: but it can be prescrv- .,! nnlti. liv tho diffusion ami ne its citizens, nf that degree of practical edncation which shall vnahle them to appreciate its value. .. Virtue prepares man to relish the means of rational felicity, whilst education atone ena-nlcs him to distinguish tho genuine from the spurious. Even piety, itself, with all its re puted excellence, unaiual oy science, oegen crates to the most contemptible superstition. In fine, education not only contributes to the success of temporal enterprise, the elevation of moral charactci and tho improvement of human happiness, but is, apparently, in-dispensible to a felicitous appreciation of the glories ol a luture state. , What higher Fulijcct, thereforo, presents it. aelf to human contemplation than that of in tellectual culture that which bat beckoned mankind, Hep by step, from pagan iJolatty -and Jewish superstition, to the happy recognition of the illuminating and eali'lary principles of the gospel of peace. That which has re claimed our reverence from the basest pagan pro'titution, to its snhlimo association in the wonhi? of the diviuo Redeemer 7 And here the question importunately obtrudes itself: What has been, hitherto, accomplished, in our own country, by legislative patronage towards elevating the characteror improving the model of common school education 7 Will that legislator who has, upon this sub ject, been vehement in suggesting and urging measures of reform j and v, ho lias been most sanguine in his auguries and Ins hopes, with, hold, still, hit acknowledgement of total dis. appointment ; or attempt to sustain the sanity ot his reveries by a shameless allusion to antecedent legislative puerility? Will not every r fleeting Individual in whom conscientiousness predominates over adhesiveness, or frankness over dogmatism, lend hia voice tn'the general dissent from the utility of past legislation ; and point, indignantly, to the present illiterate slate of society, as an irrepressible evidence of the accuracy of hit o-4!rion. Fundi have been created hy charter reservation, and especial legislative enactments, which have been squandered with the mockery of utility. Notwithstanding our laws, relative to the the expenditure of school-funds, fiave required an imposing formality in their execution, indicative of tho deepest jealousy of the wisdom and integrity of tlio people, yet they have hern so imbecile iu their character, and so inefficient in their operation, that waste has been, neatly, eo'uruensuralc with I he amount of receipts. Has not the zeal of the warmest odvccalcs nf refurm, been cooled, at length, to the tero f iiidiftv-rcncc, from a consciousness of the entire failure of their most hopeful prospects: . and has not legislation, despairing of success, finally, anhandoned tho subject to ignorance and chance 1 Mature, in the creation of the human race has peremptorily declared that reason is not an instinct, bat an acquisition, but having still rendered it indispenrible to the consummation of herp'irpuso: is it not sacrilege to charge her with delinquency, in tho adaptation of means for its attainment? No gift of second sight seems to bo required lo prognosticate the regression ol human character, in the absence of unremitted cultivation. Means, therefore, adequate to the desired i ff el, should he sought for with the ml 'of inquisition and adopted with the avidity of parsimony. Wlnt, theo, constitutes the pivot rn which has, hitlicitn, revolved this systrm of legislative imbecility ? Is it deficiency of pecuniary resources, or misapprcheniion'ofa judicious mode of application. ? In the infancy of our local settlements, the former may hare beon an (Oiciont obstacle to tin surcoasful prosecution of common school education. Tho proverbial enterprise of the Ameriean, has, lmwever, long since, obviated this ohjer'inn, throughout tho early populated portion of our country, wail tho western pioneer lint been sharply pursued by mtiltilnilin ous emigration, competence and wiallh during most of the period which has elapsed since the establishment or our political independence. The latter, lien, would seem to be particularly implicated in die failure of our past r. rejects. At least, the subject presents itsielf, as not altorcthc.- unworthy of diecussion. And lo him, who weitld maintain the wisdom of past provisions, ihe contest is not only open, but the gauntlet thrown. In conclusion of these preliminaries, Ihe sentiment may he advanced without the far . of contradiction, that competent qualifications, in M'honlinastere, are indispensablo to successful instruction. Koine discrepancy of opinion existing, only, upon the subject of rompeicn- ' cy, itsolf. This includes, in its d. finition, not merely ihe attainment of what tha student is expected to as taught, hut every thing which, nn the part of the teachers, may facilitate com. monies 1 in. No teacher, therefore, at lent of rudinvMal acinic, should be considered e.nm. petnnliy qnalifiod, unices hii acquisitions, very rini.rloMblj, exceed what ha if required to commmicete. That tha eonn'rv has aver heen very imperfectly supplied with competent leacheis ia a truth, much less humiliating thin that no attempt, whatever, has, hitherto, been made to remedy the delect. Colleges and academies have given pledgee, iipoo th 1 subject, which have been but illy re-doomed, Jf0r ,ouJd it ever be expected that Ibsy will nrtet tlit tiocesrities of community, while the few graduates who possess genius and enterprizs are called, Is higher honors and compensation, by tho learned professioni of our country. 1 he poverty ol reputation and wages, heretofore, attached to school teaching, in New-England, though, perhaps, equivalent to its deserts, will infallibly render high academical or collegiate acquirements, altogether unavailable in Ihe business of common school instruction, where, more than in any other case, the public inlcreat requires them. The question, then, recurs, upon the subject of a remedy for Ihe universal evil of incompetency in schoolteachers, which is not likely lo be realized from anv oihcr project Ihan that of the institution of public seminaries, liberally endowed, upon the principle of gratuitous instruction, and judiciously conducted, as governmental engine. Willi these, our nation may soon realise the character which its egotism has, fictitiously, assumed, and, silting on a political and literary eminence, it may beckon, alike, both the Hottentot and the Briton to come up lo a participation of the honors and felicities of intellectual ascendency. -(To be continued.) - SENATOR FROM OHIO. It is well known that the Tories in Ohio have resolved to defeat, if possible, the reelection nf Thomas Etving 10 the U. S. Senate. The subjoined proceedings of Ihe Legislature nn the subject will be rea l with interest. Bost. Atlas. A resolution was parsed by ihe Senale by a parly vole, proposing lo the House of Representatives 10 meet 011 the IO1I1 insi. and chouse the Senator hy joint ballot ol both houses. On the receipt of the resolution hy ihe House, Mr. Kelly moved lo amend it as follows : Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives, ilial Ihe mcmliers be-Ion ins 10 the pariv, self-styled democrat ic party) otherwise known as the Van Bu-ren party, shall meet in secret conclave at the place usually known as the Tin-pan, or such oilier secret place as 'liey may agree upon, on t rnlay night next, between the hours ol seven and eleven in the evening, . ml then, and there, in accordance with the "usages ol said parly," designate, deter mine nn, and decree, who shall lie the Senator in the Congress ol the United S'ates, lo supply the place of Ihe Honora ble I liomas kwing, whose term of servt will expire on the 4ih ol March next ; and that all the members oi said partv, (accord' ing to the usages Ihereol.) be bound by said decree, Hut as the laws or the land require lhat said decree shall be registered in a joint meeting o,' the members of both houses of the General Assembly; and as the constitution of llis slate requires that two thirds of Ihe members of each branch shall be present to constitute a quorum ; and whereas the said party unforiuna ely does not include, within ils folds, two thirds of the members in either branch ; iliereiore, Resolved, Thai llie'whig members of Ibis General Assembly be required to be present at such meeting of both branches, not for ihe purpose nl having any voice in the tie lection of said Senator lo Congress, but for the sole and only purpose of constituting tne necessary quorum, in order to register and give legal and binding effect to the said decree of the most august conclave of the Tin-pan." A long, irregular, an-1 somewhat exciting neoaie ensued, to wdic'i but little mercy wai shown to the practice ofTin-nanninc. and wincn was not concluded until some lime after Ihe expiration of the usual hour 01 adjournment. 1 liose who DarticiDated in II, were Messrs.
