of the LexiDgton Gazette appears a long and
interesting article on Washington College,
from which we extract the following refer
ence to a new and striking feature, proposed
to be embraced in the scope and purpose
of that institution. The writer says :
. That feature of expansive liberality most
attractive and striking to an editor is the
proposal to appoint to scholarship and tho
college a certain number of young men who
propose to make journalism their profession.
This is the first distinct recognition ever
made by the so called Centres of Wisdom
of the true dignity and importance of the
public press; and shows a wish to aid in its
elevation by the education of those who arc
to serve in its ranks. It accepts it f.s a
coadjutor in public instruction , and frat
ernizes with those who perform its functions
as ministers at the altar of knowledge.

and the following boats were entered :
Teazer, II. Burkhimer,

The judges started the Teazer at 4:10, the
Vina 1 minute and 20 seconds later, No
Name 40 seconds after the Vina and the
Retta 50 seconds after the No Name.
The boats sailed up Motts channel round
a buoy and then down atrain. then down

starlog point on the sound, making a seven

given I taste of all varieties ot wind. They
passedthe stake boat at the starting point
on the cond run in the following order ,
"Teazer No name, "Retta" and the "Vina."
At thh' point the "Reta" got aground
causing a delay ot about a minute. After
getting into deep water it was discovered
that shi had broken the jaws of her gaff,
and theMbre withdrew. The "Vina" soon
got tired nd returned, leaving the race be

The "Teazer" came in winner at 5:47 p.
m. beating the no name by 4 minutes, and
28 secoods, and making the run in 1 hour
and 37 minutes.
The affair was a grand success, and we
now look for many more mch friendly con
tests. The very best of good humor pre
vailed and all went well. Capt. Burkhi
mer, who sailed the Teazer, seemed to take
his success as a matter of course and received
the . congratulations of his friends with a
nonchalance as though he " was used to

LETTERS FKOJI THE PEOPLE.I
letter no. 7.
Smitiiyille, Sept. 2, 1869.
Mn. Editor:-At the close of the war
iptclligent men at once saw the necessity of
inaugurating a thorough system of educa
tion for the South, to enable it successfully
to compete with the growing intelligence
and enterprise of the North. The South
had hitherto neglected this duty. The ig
norant masses had always been the pliant
tools of the large planters and landowners,
hiit tbp.v obtained an education for their
own children at the Nqrtb, generally, in
place of building up schools and colleges at
the South. To reuiedythdse evils it has been
the constant aim and untiring pursuit of
such men as General Howard to develope
the moral and intellectual capacity and
found a new element; f of power in the
people and to seek loyalty in the masses
where it was wanting in their leaders, by
laying the foundation of instruction in a
complete system of common schools, as at
the North. The much abused Frccdman's
Bureau, of which Gen. Howard is chief,
with other intelligent philanthropists and
statesmen, gave their unqualified and earn
est support, and constant attention and la
bor to the cause, for with fargeeing sagacity
thuyjat once saw that the entire salvation of
the 'new Mft'Mi'VWnKcV'ffieclasses
in the South, for they perceived that igno
rance might suit a state of slavery, but never
a! state of liberty. War filled up the
valleys and pulled dowti the mountains, and
graded the track for a new christian civili
zation that an enlightened education might
penetrate the remotest and secluded pine
forests of the Soutli, and drain the unex
plored marshes of popular ignorance, and
dispel forever the illusions and prejudices of
a bygone age. 1 The want of education was
lfelt and seen to have been the promoting
cause which ultimately resulted in the dis
astrous effects witnessed by the rebellion.
The same reasons that actuated these men
also governed the old hostile element at! the
South to oppose education in its practical
operation and general diffusion, for they
saw that the last shred and vestage of
their power and former- supremacy would
be forever swept away, which result is now
being consummated, because they abtised
the trust reposed in them by the people by
ueglecting education and schools for the
people when they had the power, and their
former influence will never be regained, for
t'hie .people can nowj see the selfishness of
their policy. It is therefore with gratifica
tion and pride that we look for the regene
ration and advancement of the new South,
and an elevation in every I additional school
house that is planted, as if a fresh battery
were placed in position, no longer with the
object ofdestroying ihen's lives and property,
but by moral force reclaim and build ' up
what has been secured and purchased at so
much sacrifice of life through the agency of
war, that good wheat may once more be
planted and grown in peace, and bring forth
ruits in abundance for the happiness and
prosperity of all. With but a few honora
ble exceptions the people of the South have
taken no special interest or concern in this
important enterprise, and the entire credit
of: this great undertaking; j. e. educating an
entire people has been commenced, carried
on and thoroughly organized to an unprece
dented extent by the public spirit and pri
vate expenses of the people of the North,
amongst whom the American Tract Society,
as representing the Churches, has done a
noble and imperishable work; and at some
future day when prejudice and hostility
shall have subsided from the minds of her
people, the South, will acknowledge and
appreciate the work which the Recon
structed State Governments have now
taken in hand to furnish and superintend.
No one in this State is better qalified and
fitted by an extensive experience and thor
ough education than Rev. S. S. Ashley, pur
present State Superintendent, who like most
benefactors of their, race, has been the sub
ject of constant abuse and calumny ; but the
children of those who killed the Prophets,
were the ones to build their altars, so will
an after generation honor the names ! of
such men, whose future monuments thev
have themselves, laid in the enduring grati-1
tude and love of the children who are now
growing up, ,and whose names they will
cherish and revere as Fathers and Saviours
to the country. But my object in writing
at this time, is to notice the opening of the
new school house previously referred to in
the Post, at this place, and just erected
through the active exertions of Sena
tor E. Legg, who obtained an appropria
tion of $500 from government of unexpend
ed funds left in the hands ot the Freed-
mens Bureau and appropriated by Gen l.
Howard for educational purposes at the
Southland with the valuable assistance ren
dered by the colored people themselves, in
performing the necessary labor gratis which
equalled an additional amount of $200
which shows their appreciation of what is
being done for them. In this way it is al
ways a pleasure to help those who show
such a determination to help themselves.
They are now subscribing money among
themselves and friends to purchase a large
steel bell to complete the edifice, for which
the money has already been secured and
the order sent off to have it funded, which,
with every thing complete, will cost deliv?
ered about $39. The dimensions of the
building are 24 X 35 feet, and will seat one
hundred and ten scholars. The school was
formally opened on the 28th ultimo, by
dedication services consisting of singiiig,
and addresses on the subject of education,
by Senator E. Legg, Mr..Soloman C. Smith,
Anthony Davis, L. A. Galloway, Wm.
Brown. John Davis and others. If
the colored people of Smithville will but
show an equal determination to help them
selves now they have the chance, to become
educated, they will do themselves and this
communitv credit, for they will be more
valuable and better citizens with an educa
tion than without one, and, no colored or
white man, who is indifferent to the educa
tion of his children, is worthy of the honor
ed name of father. Differing as I do with
many people of the South on this subject,
experience has proved it ; and considering
the end and detiny of man, with an immor
tal soul, it becomes a sacred and solemn ob
ligation of parents and others to advance
and elevate their fellow-beings far above
the mere brutes which perish, and help to
prepare and educate him for a higher, a
nobler and better state of existence. There
tore all good men should assist and en
courage on this good work and they will
not lose their reward.
The colored people of Smithville have
way of becoming useful, intelligent, honest
and industrious citizens with the same means
and opportunities as the white people.
Quietness and good feeling generally per
vades this community.
