THE STATE UNIVERSITY. From our Daily Edition of November 6. The State University under the manage ment of its present Board of Trustees, has been a subject of much discussion of late by tho press throughout Georgia. To say more upon the subject at this time might at first appear unwise. But owing to recent results in the?college showing most conclu sively, that no discussion whatever, can likely do halt the harm the present ruinous policy pursued by the Board of Trustees is doing, and may perchance serve the pur pose of bringing the necessary reform in the management of this institution by call ing the attention of the people and of the Legislature to that course on the part of this body for the past two years, which is fast dragging down the college, wc are in duced from none other that a high sense of duty again to speak, to speak plainly and to speak continuously until the present mismanagement has been corrected, our endeavors to raise the curtain, and bring to the public attention, the great damage now beihg done onr State Uni versity, we claim hut the one purpose, the welfare and protection of our great educa tional interest. We are fully aware, that those whose positions as a matter of course, forbid their agreeing with us, have and will term our notices of the college, attacks upon the University. But let it be remetn bored that onr comments, onr criticisms and our censures arc directed altogether, and entirely at the Board of Trustees, not the College. Let it also he remembered that the feelings of an outraged common wealth will fully justify our course and sus tain our efforts in this direction. In regard to the most unjustifiable Secta rian considerations or influences which un questionably have found their way, to some extent, in the University, which are so vio lative of the spirit and letter oi the law un der which the College was founded, and a continuation of which can but prove an in evitable ruin to its prosperity, we do not now propose to speak, but will confine our re marks to the more recent action of the honor able Board of Trustees, the effects of which are now beiDg so seriously felt at the Uni versity. First we shall notice that action of the Trustees last August towards Dr. W. LeRoy Broun which was the true cause of his resignation as professor in the State University and President of the State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. It will be remembered that one year ago last August owing to the action of the Board of Trustees in regard to the use and distribution of the fund arising from the land scrip appropri ation by the General Government for the purpose of establishing our Agricultural Col lege, Dr. Jones of the Southern Cultivator presented in his journal an article fully re viewing the whole matter, and which arti cle greatly excited and disturbed the minds of the State Agricultural Society. The Society believing from Dr. Jones’ article, that there was some use being made of the land scrip fund which was not in accordance with the spirit and intent of the act of the General Government making the appropria tion or the act of the State of Georgia award ing the appropriation to the State University determined to call Dr. Broun the President, before their body that the matter might be fully investigated. That the State Agricultural Society had a perfect right to investigate this matter, no one for a moment will gainsay. ThatDr. Broun voluntarily went before this society and made any statement whatever, wc have never heard charged. That what he did state when called before that body was any thing more than the facts, wc presume the Board of Trustees themselves will not deny. That so for as the statements of Dr. Broun went to justify himself against any charge of neglect of duty, we apprehend is a right and privilege, which none will dispute. That President Broun aimed at any thing more than his own defense, and the . success and welfare of the College, which had been given into his charge, or for one moment intended his remarks before the society as the slightest reflection upon the Board of Trustees, oannot justly be claimed or sus tained by the Trustees or any one else who would do him justice. What, then, caused the offense which induced the Trustees, last August, to hold the rc-election of Dr. Broun in abeyance, until they could arraign him before their body upon the charge of having greatly offended their honor and respectability of position t Thereby forcing the President of the Agricultural College to protect his own self respect by resigning his position as such. It was a resolution of the State Agricultural Society calling the attention of the Board of Trustees to their probable misappliantee of the land scrip fund, and requesting that this be corrected and the fund be untouched for any other purpose save that for which it was intended. This and nothing more, seems to have been the great cause of offense to those Trustees yho are required both by the act of the General Government and that of the State of Georgia, to strictly guard this fund against any other than the purposes for which it was designed. Was Dr. Broun responsible for this resolution, or in any wise to. blame for the action of th^Agricul- tural Soctetjrjp ^ ~ ' ' 1 poning his resignation uutil the openiug of the term, unquestionably he should have tendered his resignation imme diately aftei his re-election or what would have been better still, he should have refused to let his name go be fore tbe.Trustees for re-election, -w ..al- Again in regard to the course of Dr. Broun in this whole question, as to the ap pliance of the land scrip appropriation, it is but just to make the following presentation of facts which are fully within onr own knowledge. During the session of the legislature in 1874 the question was raised as to the equita ble adjustment of the claims of the colored race for a portion of the proceeds of the agritultural land scrip. The agitation of this question seriously threatened the division of the scrip os awarded for the establishment of the Col lego at Athens. The special joint committee appointed from the House and Senate to examine into and re port upon this matter, stood almost unani mously in favor of giving the colored race their pro rata out of this found, rather than appropriate its equivalent from the State treasury. Dr Broun was telegraphed for and upon arriving in Atlanta, went before -lie committee, and atler most able and earn est appeals in behalf of the State Agricul tural College, citing them to the require ments of the act of the general government, by way of scientific prof essorships and certain scientific appliances in this College, succeed ed in getting the committee to recommend that the laud scrip be iefl in tact, and that the equivalent of the pro. rata belonging to the colored race, be appropriated from the State Treasury, but not until exacting from Dr. Broun a solemn and bona-fide promise that the land scrip should never be used either directly or indirectly for any other purpose than was strictly provided in the act of the General Government. This promise, Dr. Broun unhesitatingly made, as it was the strict requirement, not only of the General Act, making the appro priation, but of a Special Resolution, passed by tbe Georgia Legislature at its previous session, giving specific direction to this fund. Senator Hillyer, chairman of this special joint committee, embodied this promise in bis report to the General Assembly, which fact no doubt secured the passage of the bill, “ to equitably adjust the claims of the colored race for a portion of ti e proceeds of the Agricultural Laud Scrip.” Approved March, the 3d 1874. The Governor also, before approving this bill as passed by the General Assembly, we are most reliably informed exacted the same promise from Dr. Broun. In the meantime, ike special Congressional Committee appoint ed to look after the land scrip appropriations to tbe different States, learning that certain irregularities had obtained as to the proper ap pliance of thefundsarisingtherefrom, through their Chairman, addressed certain inquiries to the various Presidents of these Colleges Dr. Broun simply referred the committee to the resolution as passed by the State Legislature in 1873, and the bill passed by the same body in 1874, also citing them to his promise in behalf of himself and the Board of Trustees as contained in the report of Senator Hillyer to the General Assembly. Now we ask in all candor, have the Trus tees complied with these requirements of law and promise? Was not Dr. Broun, after such a promise or. his part, perfectly justifiable in defending himself before the gricultural Society, or any other body, tor any seeming or charged failure of compli ance with the requirements of law and his bona fide promise to both the Legislature and the Governor of Georgia ? The question is now daily going the rounds, who in the Board of Trustees instituted this charge against President Broun ? Was the attack made upon him so much on account of any real offense offered by him to the Board of Trustees, or was it owing to the fact, that perhaps Dr, Broun’s longer cod tinuance with the University might jeopar dize the position of Eome special favorite? We will have more to say on this and other matters pertaining to the University at an other time. welfare of the people and State which he has so outraged and dishonored. With the presentation of the e facts as regards the present management of the State University, wo a ain appeal to the people and to the Legislature to speak out in behalf of that reform and reorganization which ia so needed and which must obtain before the State University is what every true friend and Georgi.ei must so much d sire it to be—the honoi and boast of our State. earnest well wisher of Georgia’s best •rest ? Why did'this* inetkiJer, if not of the most prominent and influential mem bers of this Society, that he was the father THE STATE UNIVERSITY. From our Dally XZidtion of November 8. To resume tbe consideration of that ac tion of tbe Board of Trustees which caused the loss of Dr. W. LsRor Broun to the University, who was beyond all question the great strength to the institution, and having clearly established the foot, as w think, that Dr. Broun was in no wise responsible for the supposed offense to the Trustees, why than, we ask, was this attack made upon him? Why was this honorable body so long coming to the«on elusion that they were offended? The supposed cause of offense had, as we under stand, obtained some considerable length of time before they became so sensitive, of their honor, and so self-important in t eir position as Trustees. Why did a few particular members of the Board (whose names we may yet give), select this partic ular occasion to become so antagonistic to Dr. Broun ? Was it a sectarian feeling which was at the bottom of the whole movement? Were they jealous of the strong hold which Dr. BfeouN had upon the whole people of Georgia by reason of his being the most prominent Educator in this Southern country ? Why did one of the most prominent members of the Board, he who was leading this attack upon Pres! dent Broun, when importuned to desist from his purpose, upon tbe ground that no possible good coeld oom# of k, say no—it was no use talking, to him, bis njimJ was made up, and no reasouiDg,or, persuasion could win him from Jbis purpose;? 1 Would We were informed quite recently, by one. it not ; have been wiser and more in the spirit of justice to have first acquainted himself with air tho facts in tbe, ease? and interest ? Why openly and positively,-aHeast negatively, oppose the man whon» ,J hfe'had always be fore, claimed as the gre t pillar of strength to our State inStitatiofis of learning, the “ brainiest” man now engaged in the cause education ? Why was it, that when a meeting of the Board of Trustees was called at the open ing of the present term, to provide aga*ns : the greatest calamity which had ever be fallen the University, lliat not one of thos Trustees, whose very actions had driven Dr. Broun from the University and State College, was present to look after the in terest of those institutions, over which they pretend to exercise Trusteeship? These are significant and iuq>ortant ques tions tor tiie whole people ut Georgia. The thorough investigation of them in their fullest and strictest bearing will begin to 6how the ruinous drift of affairs hlou State University. What must the people oi Georgia think f that policy on the part of the Trustees oi their State University, which not only permits the loss, but even drives from our educational ranks such men as Drs. Lipscomb and Broun, to till positions in an institution of- a neighboring St. tc, whose connection therewith must necessarily draw no inconsiderable patron age from our own borders ? When we consider how faithfully Dr. Broun had labored among the agriculturists ot the State to popularize that institution which was established lor their benefit, aud how successful he had been in winning favor for this College at the same time, necessarily, bringing that popularity to the State Uni versity which it so much needed, we can be gin to appreciate and fully realize the injus tice done both him and the educational interest of Georgia, by this most unjust, unwise and inconsiderate action ot the Board of Trus tees. Having reviewed at considerable length that administration of aff.iirs in the State University which resulted in the loss of Dr. Broun the President of the State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, let us again devote a brief space to the consideration of the sumptuary law as to board at Universi ty enacted by the Trustees more than one year ago and the enforcement of which at this time, is destined to drive many young men from the College. What could have been tl e inducement with any set of meo claiming common sense for introducing into the College a law which is not only unjust in the highest degree, but which they must have known could not be enforced without requiring the Students to board where neith er they nor their parents were willing that they should, and which would result uuques tionably iu their leaving the College? Did not Trustees who favored this most un wise and arbitrary rule, say themselves, that they could uot nor would nut board Students or any one else at twenty dollars per month ? Do the Trustees claim that they have the right to say where a gentleman shall board his son and wh t he shall pay for the same ? Has not this Board of Dictators just as much right to fix the priceour Grocery Mer chants shall charge for their provisions, as to determine the price of board which shall be charged by those who are dependent upon these Merchants for their supplies? Would it not be just as lawful and wise for them to say that our Livery Stables should not charge the Students hut one dollar au evening for a horse and buggy or that Showmen visit ing Athens should not charge them but fif teen cents for admission to their entertain ments? Do they expect to gaiu patronage for the College by forcing the sou* of gen tlemen to board in crowded houses and sleep in crowded rooms without regard to comfort, joonveuieuce or sauiury Laws? Or do they intend to make the poor will ows of our city, whose ou!y mean* of sup port is by their ( boarding houses, sacrific the pitiful sum ft is st» bard for them to earn even at the present rate of board, to DAVIS RECEIVED THE HIGHEST AWARDS AT TIIE LATE STATE Tutt THOT O ATHENS.

A vOTHER BARRIER TO HIE SUCCESS OF OUR ALREADY GREATLY OUT RAGED STATE UNIVERSITY. Great heavens, in the name of Georgians, and in behalf of the educational interest of our State, Georgia’s best interest, we ask when will the B .aid of Trustees of our State University learn to be wise aud cease to bang millstone after millstone around the neck of that institution, the downfall of which seems to be an inevitable conse quence under the present injudicious, un wise and ruinous administration ! Tiie agitation amongst some of the students yes terday, caused by their being required to swear that they are not pitying more than twenty dollars per month for board, many of who it have paid the.r board for several months in advance, also have had stored at their boarding houses their winter’s supply of fire wood, is destined to drive many of them away to seek educational advantages els.- iv here. What other can be the decision of the parents of these boys, than to take tin-m away from an institution where such an unjustifiable and arbitrary rule is en forced ? No common sense, i o practical exper ience, aye and no true interest of tiie col* ' g.- can justify any such ruinous establish ment of sumptuary law in the State University. The universal expression, botlt at borne and abroad, condemns this Law as unwise, unjust and ruinous to the University. Then, why do the Trustees pers : -t in its enforcement?. Is it mere stubbornness on their part, or that self conceit which makes all oih<>r men appear less wise than themselves? Let the true fritfids of‘the college cry out against this arbitrary and damagin. rule. Let the attention of all Georgia be called to this unwise administration of tiie affairs of in- State University. Anil then let the Georgia Legislature, as it values our educational interest, make it the first duty of its next session to reorganize the Board of Trustees of the State University. A. CHALLENGE. wn.wN vs. mean. Owing to tho great state of perfection to which the Wilson Sewing Maoliine has been advanced, and the fact that employees of the “ Singer ” Agency at Mem phis have misrepresented tho Wilson in iii.uiy ways, we therefore issue the following challenge, an 1 invite the proprietors of the Memphis Agency, or uuy oue repre senting them, to compete with the Wilson Machine in any public hall iu tho city, on the following points of merit, and the decision to be left to eleven first class mechanics, six of whom may be selected by opponents, and none to be selected who" are now or have heretofore bo-n in the employ of either party. We propose to demonstrate clearly that the Wilson Sewing Mitcuiuo ia-fiaperior to- tue linger in the follow ing points, viz: First—That Use Wilson Machine has the best feed, it being made to work on the right of the needle as well os on the left, so the Machiuu will stitch over seems or gathers with ease. Second.—The u Uke-np” movement for drawing up the slack thread is a “nositiYe movement,” and uses no check spring, and tnna prevents the missing of stitches ana dolays by breakage. Third.—The three principal movements in tho Wilson Machine, vix: tho shuttle, the Eeed and the needle, are all worked by one short shaft, instead of two long ones, thus doing away with one long shaft, also the tw r o cog wheels, and thus’avoid friction. Fourth.—The Wilson is much the easiest and lightest running Machine of the two, and has more speed. The difference in fa*or of the Wilson is ten thousaud stitches in one day of six hours’ work, the tnotious made with the feet being equal. Fifth.—The wearing points in the Wilson Machine are all made adjustable so that play room or lost motion can be taken up when necessary. (Therefore our war rant f r five vears, which we comply with, and other companies refuse to give.) Sixth.—Th<* tension i» not affected by the Bizc of the thread, ahd remains the same from 150 down to No. 10, and the screw for regulating retains its position. Seventh.—The large balance wheel being located in front and outside the frame, can not soil the dress of the operator. Eighth.—The adjustable oone* on the balance wheel spindle prevents the rattling and clicking noise so ob jectionable. Ninth.—The adjustable bushcsos on the needle bar of the Wilson insures durability, prevents noise and the breaking of needk s. Tenth.—The Wilson Machine, by a slight motion of the operator’s foot, is thrown out of motion when the bobbins are being wound. Th ! s gives four advantages: 1st. It saves the Tabor of driving the machine when you are not sewing; 2d. The unnecessary wear on machine* ry; 2d. Tiie tucker or any attachment in use can re main in position without moving (which stops the wear and tear), and with the work in the machine; 4th. Be ginners or others cannot break the thread should they turn the machine baedward, and the belt or band re mains in position and always ready.
