The London Daily News, in an 'editorial
on the subject, says :
‘•The Fenian movement is confined chiefly
to laborers, idlers and tvaCilercra of low de
gree. The intelligence of the country, and
above ull tbs Catholic clergy, is ou the side
of order. It will soon appear what the gov
ernment means to do. It is clear there hno
time to be lost. There will be no question
on either side of the Irish Channel of put
ting down this movement. Asa work of
mercy it must be done. There must be
prompt, careful and complete prevention
and repression of the rebellion, whether
weak or formidable. It would ire a great

8Y EDMOND ABOUT.
Now-a-days a good father works, even
though he be rich, to secure his children po
sition. He loog3 to make a dowry tor his
daughter ; he plunges into politics, and per
forms Hercultss twelve labors to gel a good
S'uecure lor his sou. It is to be marked tlmt
: the fathers of our day do not reckon a greut
• deal on the activity of their sons. Michael
I Leteliier reckoned on his sou's activity ; he
1 made him work like a yeoman—so the sou
became Louvois. Colbert did not spoil the
Marqui-de Seiguelay, who became under
. his eyes an excellent minister. At present
! tlie ideal of provident fathers is a quiet, well
j paid place, a sub-treasurer’s or deputy sub
! treasurer's place. This does not require a
| great effort of education. Ail that is neces
sary is that his sop should enjoy good health,
j aud reach his twenty-first year iv knout eni
! barrassraent. The father struggles, strives,
| intrigues, pushes, runs after favor, reaches
: it, retains it, and returns occasionally home
jto see how his son is getting on. I know I
| am exaggerating; hut if you have a disease
j in the blood, 1 will not show it to your naked
j eye; I will take the microscope. It is through
a microscope, you may say, that I have secu
the earliest education of young Parisians
abandoned to the servants.' I need not tell
you that tlie race of servants is greatly’ modi
fied in Paris. Where are those old servants
, of the good old time who belonged so part
and parcel oi the family ? We might have
confided a son or even a daughter without
| fear to them.
] They loved 1 their yoitng masters; they
, surrounded those ingenuous eyes and those
j virgin ears with llie tendercst respect and
! the most jealous care. Children in turn
felt something like affection for those old
1 pieces ot furniture of the paternal mansion
; who were so faithful,and intelligent. They
' looked upon them as poor kin who felt neiih
;er jealousy nor~bitterness. These old ser
j vauts have not disappeared from France ;
! they have moved, that's a'l, and now they
) live in the provinces. But at Paris neither
: masLers nor servants have the time nor the
j desire to know each other. They live un
der tj;e same root, they quit, they give each
I other reciprocally eight days notice from
j one year s end to the other. Some masters
| dismiss all their servants every summer to
,go to the country. There is scarcely a ser
• vant who is not iu quest of a better place, I
mean a place which is more lucrative in
j wages and profit?. The order of the day is
j lor many of those wretches to levy black
' mail on the tradesmen, toswindle at'market,
to make money every possible way. to stake
their savings on change, wait for the capital
prize of some lottery or of the Emperor Maxi
millian's loan-fortlietr hearts to be filled with
eopidity-forthemtobe cynical of speech; for
money in all their talk to lie everything for the
best place to he given to the man who gives
them the largest vails and the most valuable
presents. lam not so insane as to be scan
| dalized by this. They are what fate and cd
; ucation has made them. But that a father
I should abandon bis daughteis and sons to
I these preceptors in livery is a tliiug I cannot
I bear with so much patience. Great stress is
i laid that young ladies should attain their
I marriage morally blindfolded. The ancients
j thought differently, never mind that. I ac
cept our French and Christian manners, and
; I admit that angelic ignorance is perfection
; itself. But then, O pretty, sprightly, and in
teresting mothers, walk your daughters your
j selves, and don’t send them to the Garden of
! the Tuiiteries under the cate of a nurse who
, goes there to meet her svveetheait. I know
perfectly well that sometime afterwards
, w T hen your daughter is twelveycars old, you
will send her to the convent. I ngrec the
convent will teach litr nothing ; but do you
think it will make her forget what she has
seen and heard ? I touch, Ido not press this
poiDt. It is useless to give statistics of nurses
•qd governesses who give rendezvous in the
chamber of a well-fvatched child. Os this
be sure, that there are very few infantine Im
' aginations which have not been more or less
\ tarnished by the remarks or actions of your
servants. The great precautions of the con
vent come too late ; it is locking up the wolf
In the sheep’s fold. I wonder at those mothers
who refuse to catty their daughters to the
gymnase, when the latter have been to the
Case des Avengles with their nurse.
A young lady whose family is more than
I millionaire has told me that she danced for
money in the Garden of tlie TnlHerfea ; her
nurse's produced her in public and pocketed
the sous. It is in the -company of servants
that future feminine spendthrifts learns the
stupidest vanity of our epoch—the vanity of
money. Servants teach them that a rich
man is better every way than a poor man,
that the best things are those which cost
most money ; that nothing is so honorable
as to spend a good deal of money. Girls
now-a-days still have doll-babies, but it is
not to play with them. It is to show them
off, to rejoice in their possession before
other girls, to say wbat they cost, to humil
iate every girl who has not so handsome aud
so dear a dol'. Bring two little girls to
gether each having in its arras a patent doll;
the doll which cost 40f. will humiliate the
doll which cost 80f. ; in the first place be
cause it has articulated arms, but above ail
because it ci>.i I6f. abr* than the other. A
little girl elegantly dressed, eved from top to
toe a little girl who was jumping, clad in a
linen blouse, but the latter soon took her re
venge by asking : “Hasyour father horses?’
“No.’’ “Mine has four horses in bis stable, ‘i
No reply can be made to this; the little
girl in a blouse must take a precedence of
the other. Interrogate all the servants and
rich children in Paris 1 Two little girls were
talking together a bout tbe boys they knew.
One or them said : ‘1 have four sweet
hearts.” “Which ono will you marry ? for
you know, yoq esn poly marry oni.” "One

shall not marry him, but I will love him none
' the less." Six years later you may hear the
; same young girl murmur this praver at tlie
altar of some fashionable convent: “Holy
Virgin ! So be 4 be rich, noble, and let me do
what I please, I will ask nothing more of
Thee!" Among the corrupters of youug
girls must be included the friends of tbe
family. Formerly as we gave trifles to the
children of our triends to please them, now
we give them to show ourselves tick and
generous. I still see my old schoolfellow
Ede V , all marquis as be is, running
about the Boulevard ou the 3lst of Decem
ber with a great basket which he filled at the
little booths. I especially see the delight of
the little girl he dazzled the next day as he
drew forth two hundred toys, each different
from the other. She stared at them with
eyes wide outstretched, she inspired them
through her mouth, and she could utter but
theft: two words: “What! Another?” The
same child five years later could be amused
by nothing. Tahan's little boxes, illustrated
books aud jewels had satiated her. A little
Parisian girl has a casket by the time she is
ten years old. The friends of the family
amuse themselves covering hei with gold
upon every occasion, not ouly upon mar
riages, but at her festival day, at her birth
day, at Easter, at New Year's Day, &c. No
body yet gives girls of this age diamonds,
bat mey will soon be given them, yuu may
I seem to decry the present to the advan
tage of the past, but I appeal to you, man or
woman, if you do not remember the respec
ful terror with which in your childhood you
looked on a five ITauc piece. Before our day
children were still more modest. One of my
nodes entered the uavul school of Angoule
me with a two-franc piece which his moth
er gave him. He kept it for two months in
his pocket without daring to break it. Chil
dren uow-a-days who have gold and bank
notes in their pocket-book will shrug their
shoulders. Well, dear children, the school
boy who had two francs in his pocket has
become a good and true man, and he has at
tained au excellent position in life. There
are in this life a great many things won by
merit, and which caunot bo bought. Your
servants never told you that ; it is a pity. It
seems to me wc were not misers despite our
superstitious respect for money. But we
looked on it for a rare and costly article
which one ought not to spend wantonly
when oee is incapable of earning it ourself.
We likewise thought that a child owned
nothing, that his ten sous were as much sub
ject to his parents’ will as the money they
tiad in their purse. Now-a-days a little girl
feels no hesitation to say to her mother :
“Ah ! you won't give me that dress ? Very
well, 1 have a hundred francs. I'll buy it."
In eight or ten years tbe same little giii will
say probably to her husband : “I do not ask
you for that river of diamonds. I buy it;
haven’t I my dowry ?"
What think you of Ibis picture of Parisian
It will lie remembered, says the Nashville
Dispatch of the 22d inst., that about a week
ago a highly colored statement of the burn
ing of a froedmen's school by ex-Rehcl sol
diers, was published in a Nashville paper,
and afterwards telegraphed all over the
country. It furnished a welcome text to
many for intemperate moralizing ou the in
herent fiendishness of the “unsubdued Re
bels " It is conceded on all hands that out
rages occasionally occur in the South—is the
North an exception—but conceding all this
it is manifestly unjust to charge a laden foe
with abuses and outrages of which they are
altogether innocent. The following is un
doubtedly the true version in connexion with
tho burning of the school, aud it is to be
hoped that it will receive equal publicity
with the other report t-
Winchester, TisNN.,Sept. 14, 1855.
To the Editors of the Louisville Journal: I
write to you to ask the correction of a state
ment which appeared a few days ago inyotir
paper, and about the same time in the Nash
ville papers, and since in the Chicago Trib
une and other papers. The statement is sub
stantially that “Rebel soldiers, on Wednes
day night, burned tlie freedmen’s school at
Dechard, Team, Mr. Schultz, the teacher,
had to flee for his lite."
This is wholly untrue. The whole com
munily at Decha’rd, two miles from this place,
disapprove the act of burning the school
house, and afler investigation by Mr. Schultz
stnd Mr. Ogden, an agent of the Freedmen’s
Bureau, they relieve the community, includ
ing Rebel soldiers from any complicity what
ever in the affair. Tlie only conclusion to
which 'all have come who know the facts, is,
that some bad man—whether white or black
is not known—is responsible for the crime,
hut ihe people have uo sympathy with the
deed and stand ready to do all in their power
to discover and punish the perpetrator.
Permit me, after making this statement,
to say that I have lived in ibis county many
years, and, although there was little or no
division in the war after it came, yet the
people were never more disposed to be law
abiding than they are now. \Ve, with one
voice, accept tbe new Condition of things.—
We made the fight upon slavery, and having
lost it, like meu we yield it. Besides, there
is no hostility among the intelligent dosses
toward fieedmeq. We want them to have
justice, and believe their improvement if it
can be effected, will boas much to the ad
vantage of tin; white race who have to deal
with mem as to themselves.
Truly, A. S. Colyar.
Pkchard, Tenn.—l cordially indorse the
above statement, hoping that Chicago pa
pers may copy it to prevent further misap
prehensions, and so contribute to mutual
understanding and harmony for our coun
