jlfr. Editor : I seo that the two aruend
njjents to tho Constitntion, submitted by
tie legisratnre of 1879 to the voters of the
State, for their ratification or jj-ejectiou,
has been ratified bv a- inaiontr of the
good people of the State, and by:. the pro- '
ctamation of the Governor they jare parts
cf the Constitution of ; tlie State. As to
t)o amendment in regard to the fraudav
lent debt of the" State, that is final and
peeds no legislation to make it effective ; .
but tho amendment in regard to tho Deaf
Mntes, Blind aud Insane of theJState, this'
Legislature has the powerj and 'tis its
doty by wise action to iuake.jt both eco
nomical and a blessing to the tax-payers
of the State witrwut-jinfiiugiiig on the'
Welfare of those' unfoVtuhate'beingsas
was intended by the mover of said amend
ment in the session of 1879. ! And the
tnovcr of said amendment feels it his du
ty, although he can expect butlittle ben
efit therefrom, being close on the "home
stretch" of tin eo score years aiid ten, to
ktate, for the benefit of after generations,
that some of the most potent reasons that
iproaipted said amendment are the follow
iing: i -
Under the Constitution as it was, the
Legislature had no power to restrict ex
penses within proper bounds and the
outlook being so gloomy as regard the
: Insane--onen to fraud most iiicantic and
when the prospects of the State would
have been completely damagejl by these
galvanized philanthropists, the jcost in the
near future would have been a quarter of
a million of dollars yearly ; that the limit
of taxation would have been entirely in
sufficient for State aud county need, and
I here say that these . pretending philan
thropists will not be easily choked off.
They have a hand in and they! will fight
a deadly fight to keep their Isold. The
present amendment puts it entirely under
the control of the Legislature jvith regard
to tiie indigent insane, and cits olf all
those able to pay, as well as tho Deaf
Mutes and lilind. We shall tiass by the

lut not so with the insane. Kot going
far back, but beginning with the Asylum
at lialeigh : At tlic sessions of 1677 and '79
there was appropriated $00,000 a year,
for two vear, and for 1878 there was a
dsQcienev of $3,000 for about 270 insane.
Say, tho last named year, $0)00, at the'
rate ot two luuulteu and utty uollars a
money, when, if it takes 17 silver dollars
to weigh a pound, she lias grabbed 5,000
pounds, or five two-horse loads of silver,
1,000 pounds to a load.
We ask will you make the Insane wait
till they are dead T It seems so. The
money is what they are after. What da
thev care for the Insaue? ' SA.nd now. let
me advertise, that these same galvanized
philantrophists will twist, wrangle and

laws nudcr the Amendment, in their favor.

The General Assembly should recur to
first principles if they do. (The grabbers
occupation will be gone, and in the near
future it will save to tax payers at least
50.000 dollars. The Legislature should
enact laws m.vking each I county pro

required tor their maintenance, and remit
the amount to the sheriff wheu they make
their returns of taxes collected tor tho
vicinity, are now makjog active prepara-j
tions for constructing a hew, and much
larger school-ouildiug near tho site of

no doubt, afford the ahf pJes accommoda

contribute, either in ihoneyniaterials, or

intend that this school shall, like many
other in the country, go down, but that
it shall be perpetuated:; and, with annu
ally increasing educational facilities, ex

The writer of this was most agreeably
impressed with the evidences of profound
interest in the school manifested by the
people of tho neighborhood.; All, even

power to alieuate them from a common
brotherhood in the great cause of educa
tion, the only true foundation of enlight
ened Christianity. There seem to be two
elements essential to the success and per
petuation of any school. They are these:

There is little safety in locking
doors when professional burglars are
in town. If the key be taken out of
the lock they quickly fit one to it. If
the key be left in the lock, they use
a small pair of nippers, of the best
steel, with a sliding ring, graduated

land can unlock the door as readily as
if the real handle were outside." The
best protection is a thumb latch, with
a nail above it, the latter to prevent
its being raised by a long, thin blad

fasteuing the window with a nail, un
