THE DAILY TIMES.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18,
Southern Education for Southern
We have perused with no little delight, a recent
address of the Hon. William 11. Stiles before the
Cherokee Baptist College on the above theme,—
Filled with rich classical illusions, the question is
discussed with ability and animation. It cannot
be doubted, that the subject of education is engag
ing the minds of the people of Georgia more than
at any previous period. The fact that the State
Road is paying handsome dividends into the trea
sury has directed public attention towards the dis
position which should be made of the surplus reve
nue and no enterprise speaks louder for btate in
terposition than that of education. All agree as
to its importance and the only difficulty lies in
maturing a plan which will command success.—
For ourselves, we have long since dispaired the
completion of a Common School system, so
widely different are the views of the people and so
impracticable is the idea, and have turned our at
tention towards a University Education. We be
lieve a plan could be developed, which would not
only carry the means of high Intellectual ad
vancement to the door of every humble cottager,
but would reflect honor and credit upon the law
making power of the State. We will not stop to
inquire into the great advantages that willa ccrue
from the endowment of a University in Georgia.
Let it suffice to say, that the growing wants of
advancing society demand it—that the increasing
spirit of sectionalism warns Southern parents a
gainst the adulterated streams of knowledge which
low from the doors of Northern Colleges—that the
strongest bond of union which binds a man to his
native land is that ol education—that no influ
ences so wean his affections from his home as the
attachments made and associations formed in a
distant country whose institutions are inimicable
to his own—that Georgia has the ability and pow
er to build up an institution suited to the progress
of the age/where Southern youths may attain the
maximum of Scholarship—a University which
would give education at the South an independer <
ty of the North— a University.which would com
plete the great system of Educational agency ot
which the College and Academy are respectively
integral parts—a University, whose graduates,
Georgia could point to with pride, as Cornelia to
her children, as her jewels.
Then let us remove all obstacles in the way of
so grand an achievement. Let us no longer hold
the doors of the State Treasury .with “hooks of
eteel,” when so mighty a project is within our
reach. Let one months earning’s of the State
Road or the interest on the purchase money for
which the whole or a part of it is sold be appropri
ated annually for this glorious enterprise. Let
tuition be free, so that the humblest may compete
with the richest boy in the race for worldly honors
and golden prizes. Let the genius of learning no
longer sit on her mountain throne, but let her be
courted and wooed, that literature and science
may comedown and walk radiant with truth and
loveliness through every grade of the communi
Such an enterprise we would advocate with all
the zeal aud ability with which we are possessed
on the Legislature. And such an enterprise, if
successful would be a monument to the wisdom of
the peopl e of Georgia.
According to the New York Heraldihe regalar
opening of the Atlantic Telegraph will not be
delayed beyond the first of October. At the last
accounts. Professor Hughes had two instruments
with him in London, and was preparing to leave
with one of them for Trinity Bay. It was ar
ranged that the cable company should send a
special steamer from Liveepool to Trinity Bay on
or about the 10th of this month, to convey the
Professor and his assistants, with all necessary
instruments and other fixtures for working the ca
ble. He will arrive there about the 20th or 25ih
of the month, and will of course require a few
days for preparation and the adjustment of the
machinery. This will occupy him until the 28th
of September, or perhaps to the Ist of October,
but certainly not longer. If, therefore, ho suc
ceeds in his calculations, we may count upon be
ing placed in the full enjoyment of the fruits of
his labors by tbe latter date.
The Caloric Engine —Ericsson’s caloric en
gine is entirely successful, as high as five horse
power. It is becoming extensively used fo r do
mestic purposes, and being free from danger, easi
ly managed,cheap, and requiring very little fuel,
is frequently preferred to the steam engine.
A Letter from “Looker On.”
We give place in our columns to-day, to the
communication of our esteemed friend “Looker
on.” The remark to which he refers “that Steph
ens is no better than Douglas,” was first made by
this paper. It was made on the hypothesis that
Mr. Stephens said what he was reported by a
Cincinnatti paper to have declared, to-wit.* “that
he was in favonof the re-election of Judge Doug
las to the Senate of the United States.” At that
time it was generally supposed that an Adminis
tration, Lecompton ticket for Senator would be
brought out in Illinois; and hence, while doubt
ing the authority of the rumor, we had the right
to infer that the remark, if made, was an expres
sion of preference for Douglas over any and all
opposition. The truth, however, being as stated
by our correspondent tfiat Mr. Stephens preferred
Douglas only in the event that the race was con
fined to Douglas and Lincoln, we could not be
supposed to have intended to class him with Mr.
Douglass tor that opinion.
Fever in Mobile.
The following report shows that the yellow
fever is on the increase and affords very clear evi
dence that it is becoming epidemic. On yester
day there was a very brisk breeze from the east
ward and northward, while the skies were over*
cast by sweeping clouds which afforded occasion
al showers’ Tbe atmosphere was temperate and
gave no indication of causes of disease. The
spread ot the disease, therefore, is owing to its own
peculiar but unknown modes of progression.
Both the thermal and meteorological condition of
the air are as favorable, apparently, to health as
possible; yet the great and almost only maledy of
our community is upon us.

FOR THE TIMES.
September 14th, 1858.
Messrs. Editors : I was glad to receive,
a few days ago, the “ Daily Times ’ in
place of the Tn-Weekly “Times & Senti
nel,” and from the neat and sprightly ap
pearance of the “Times” together with the
evident increased watchfulness and labor
expended in its management, I cannot but
hope you will be amply compensated for
the change, —I am sure you deserve it.
I must say. too, that I atn also gratified
to see that you have “ignored” the subject
of“ Douglas and Illinois politics,” except
so far as to give the news in relation to
the same, as it is passing. With all due
respect to the opinions of various Editors
of the Democratic press, I must say, that,
I think they have wasted a vast deal of ink
within the past few T weeks, with very little
good or profit to their own principles, their
cause or their party, in writing so much
about the imputations of their “enemy,” if
they were untrue. It did not seem to
these gentlemen, that if any prominent
public man commences the system of no
ticing and denying the false stories, related
upon him, of any or every irresponsible
newspaper Editor or writer, that may
choose to manufacture them, that he would
soon have his hands full, and that he might
as well give up his attention to public
business or his own private affairs, for
there are plenty of rascals in this world to
keep him busy in correcting these false
hoods, and who would thus draw him off
from usefulness. Nor did it seem to occur
to these Editors, that, if a distinguished
gentleman once commences this practice,
he must keep it up, else when he stops it
may be supposed that the most outrageous
stories are true, because he does not deny
them. Then, how unjust was it towards a
friend, to publicly call upon or expect Mr.
Stephens to notice a story got up by an
Illinois Editor, whose character we know
nothing about, cfc. Is it not trifling with
the character and position of that friend
thus to treat him ? I think it is.
Mr. Stephens’ name and opinions in re
lation to Mr. Douglas and the Illinois elec
tion, were spread before the public and
misrepresented through the givings out of
his enemies. He has not, from first to last,
said anythin; or authorized any of his
friends to come out in the newspapers as
to his opinions upon this subject, simply
because, (as I have every reason to believe)
he does not consider it proper for him thus
to come before the public and meddle with
the matter. While on a visit to the Wes
tern and Northern States, this summer, he
refused to have anything to do with the
local politics in these States—he refused to
make speeches, or to express himself pub
licly in any way. And was not this all
proper and right ? But while on a visit to
Chicago, on private business, upon being
asked by his friends, in private conversa
tion, how he felt towards Mr. Douglas, his
reply (according to the Illinois Herald , Ad
ministration paper) was, that “he would
prefer Douglas to Lincoln, but would pre
fer a good Democrat to either.” And
having been thus drawn out, could he or
any other, the most intensely Southern
man, have made a better reply ? Never
theless, out of* this remark the enemy mis
represented him, and misrepresented him
further, by representing him as saying the
administration, in opposing Douglas, were
acting “wickedly foolish,” a remark that he
most certainly did not make. Then, 1 re
peat, have not many of our Demueratic
friends done Mr. Stephens injustice in con
necting his name so much with this Doug
las controversy, when he, himself, both in
Illinois and in Chicago, has tried so
hard to keep out of it ? I think they
have. That Mr. Stephens may prefer Mr.
Douglas’ election to that of Mr. Lincoln, the
oul-and-out Abolitionist, is not strange.—
Other Democrats, well known for their de
votion to Democratic principles, and to
Southern Rights, have expressed a similar
preference—among this number is Senator
Green of Missouri and Mr. Orr of South
Carolina. And more recently, I find the
Hon. M. S. Bonham, the gentleman who
was so intensely Southern, that together
with Gen. Quitman, he would not vote for
the English bill—expressing a similar pref
erence. In a speech delivered by him at a
meeting of his constituents on the 2d inst.,
wherein he gives his reasons for voting
against the English Conference Bill, and
after endorsing Mr. Buchanan, and saying
the course ot President Buchanan last win
ter, after the dismissal of Walker, was all
the South could ask” &c., he thus speaks
of the election in Illinois, viz :
The election for Senator in Illinois ex
cites general interest. Could Judge Breese,
who is said j to be an Administration Le
compton Democrat, be elected, it might be
desired. But running two democratic tick
ets before the people may give the Black Re
publicans a majority on joint ballot of the
Legislature. As between a Black Republi
can who says all free States and down
with the Supreme Court and the Dred Scott
decision, and Judge Douglas , who, how
ever wrong he was on the Kansas question
manfully opposes those views, we can but
prefer the success of the latter.
And for this expression o'* a preference
of Douglas, over Lincoln, which is similar
to the language of Mr- Stephens on the
part of Mr. Bonham, do you really think,
Messrs. Editors, that Mr. Bonham is “no
better than Douglas !” I hardly think you
have such views. There is a very wide
difference between preferring the election of
Mr. Douglas to that of Air. Lincoln, and the
endorsement of Air. Douglas’ past course
on this Kansas matter. Air. Wise may be
said to be “no better than Douglas,” be
cause he is nol only Douglas’ supporter
now, but he endorsed Douglas Kansas
views, and his course,” last winter, &c.—
On the contrary, Messrs. Green, Stephens
and Bonham, not only did not endorse
Douglas’ views or approve his course, but
they did all they could to defeat him and
they still condemn his course—and I am
sure you did not intend your remarks made
in response to the Savannah Republican ,
sometime since, to be construed as the op
position presses have construed them.
I do not wish to be understood as being
a Douglas man—on the contrary, I am far
from it. He was once ray favorite above
all others out of Georgia, but he flinched
last winter, and it will take many years of
most devoted service to the good of the
country, and the Democratic party, for him
ever to get back near the position he once
occupied in my estimation—l don’t think
he can ever occupy the same place again.
I care nothing for him, at this time, then,
except so far as we may be able to use him!
Bad as he is he is preferable to Crittenden or
Bell, Southern men, but I never wish to see
the day when the South will have to take
any such men to rule over them. Although
ihen, at this lime, I have not, myself, any
care or preference in this Douglas and Lin
coln matter, because I am not sure as to
what course Douglas will hereafter pursue
‘owards the Democratic party ; still, as I
see Southern Americans lauding to the
skies Crittenden, Bell, Alarshall and others,
who are not as good as Douglas, and as I
do not see that any of them are quarrelling
with each other about their preferetices—as
I see the opposition to the Democracy
throughout the country arranging to coal
esce in 1860 to defeat the Democracy and
put a Black Republican, in principle, if not
in name, in the Presidential chair, and as
we may need, and want Douglas and his
followers to aid us in whipping out this
coalition, Njrth and South, I can but deem
all this sick-spelling in Georgia, as to
who of the Democrats in Georgia prefer
Douglas over Lincoln or Lincoln over Dou
glas, as childish and worse than a humbug,
—for it can have no good effect, but may
work harm in the future. Therefore, I
cannot but be gratified that you have ig
nored the subject, and I trust all others
will do likewise. And as there is a perplex
ity with some to determine who we ought
to prefer, and as there is no principle in
volved in the matter—let us all agree, that
it is immaterial who prefers Douglas over
Lincoln or Lincoln over Douglas or who is
*• on the fence.” And let us agree, that,
so long as Democrats support the Admin
istration, and abide by the usages of the
artv and support its nominees, they are
our brothers and we will have no dispute
Let our friends do this, and our Ameri
can friends will soon have something to do.

An Anti-Slavery Candidate for Gover
nor in Virginia.
The New York Evening Rost attaches
the above startling caption to the following
To the people of Virginia: I hereby
proclaim myself a candidate for the office
of Governor of the State of Virginia, and
shall urge, with whatever ability I possess,
the wisdom of accepting one hundred mils
lions of acres of the public land, the money
accruing therefrom to be applied to the
gradual extinction of slavery, by purchas
ing the young slaves, and their migration
beyond the United States. Had Virginia
applied the hundred millions of acres that
she gave to the United States in 1787, to
this purpose, the banks of her majestic
rivers would now be teeming with a thrifty
white population, and strewn with cities,
villages and cottages. She would (among
all of the States of the Federal Union)
have been first in agriculture, first in com
merce, aud first in manufactures. Give
me but a fair field to combat my rivals—l
ask no other favor—and the triumph shall
be mine. Your servant, ever faithful and
true, HENRY ABRAAI.
The Post informs us that this card ap
pears among the advertising columns of a
Richmond paper—we presume the Dis
patch. It is evidently a hoax. We have
never heard of any such individual as Air.
Henry Abram. If* such a person exists, he
is a lunatic. The Post may be assured
that if Mr. Henry Abram or Mr. Anybody*
else ventures to canvass Virginia for any
such purpose as is indicated in the above
proclamation, he will be brought to a sud
den and sharp settlement.
Mr. Yancey’s letter to the Richmond South.
We find in a late number of the Rich
mond Enquirer, a letter from Mr. Yancey
to Mr. Pryor, the Editor of the Richmond
South, vindicating the principles and ob
jects of the Leagues, against the attacks
of the latter. Mr. Pryor has charged that
the League is a movement of the Know
Nothings and disaffected democrats, to over
throw the democratic party , is a prema
ture blow against the integrity of the
Union ; and is based upon a policy insult
ing to Virginia and the other border States.
Without assuming to advocate the cause
of the League, we are satisfied from the
perusal of Mr. Yancey’s letter that the
above and other similar objections urged
against them are altogether unfounded.—
Mr. Yancey shows very clearly from the
various presses of Alabama, that the Know
Nothings and disaffected Democrats are
not the authors of the League, and that
their constitution does not contemplate a
dissolution of the Union unless in the event
that the Union fails in protecting the in
terests of the South. The members of
the League are chiefly of the Southern
Rights Democracy, whose primary object
is “to create, by the use of all proper means
a sound public opinion in the South on the
subject of enforcing the rights of the South
in the Union.” Failing to obtain justice in
the Union, their object is then to withdraw
and assume those powers which have been
delegated to the general Government. The
league is designed to act not as a political
party itself, but with a view to influence
other parties in the advancement and pro
tection of our constitutional rights.— Tus
In to-day’s paper will be found a com
munication on the late decision of the Su
preme Court in the Bank cases. Our cor
respondent, without impeaching the in
tegrity of the Court, joins issue with it re
lative to the legality of its decision, and ad
duces many authorities in support of his
side of the question. For ourselves, while
we are not competent to determine as to the
laio in the case, we are satisfied that the
Judges in making their decision w T ere ac
tuated by none but the purest motives. If
they have decided contrary to law, it w T as
nothing more than an error of judgement;
and if they have decided according to law,
they have merely done their duty. For,
however odious and unjust any particular
law may be, the Judge has no discretion, as
it is his duty to expound and not make the
law. It is, therefore, unjustifiable to insinu
ate interested or dishonorable motives with
regard to either Judge Benning or Judge
McDonald. Their lives have been sans peur
et sans reproche —they have lived above
suspicion, and public confidence in them
cannot be shaken by noisy demagogues
and petty scribblers.— Macon Stale Press
