Ireland has been for centuries a land
of reproach, of suffering and of folly.
Wrongs were so numerous that they
were supposed to be, and were, indeed,
accepted as a justification for murder.
The earth is man's inheritance; but as
land was limited and production unequal
to the food of the inhabitants, the Leg
islature excused itself for the perpetra
tion of this horrible condition of t-ociety
by ascribing all the evils of the country
to the follies and wickedness of tho peo
ple. The Legislature never thought
that God is in other places as Weli as in
Ireland, and that Liilaud has Colonics
which, rinhtlv coni lered. are mere as-
ili!icalion of the mother country. In
antioue times popul-tiom emigrated to J
less populous places voluntarily or in
obedience to political poiicy; but in our
day, and long before the present day,
the Government never took into con. i l
cration the immense Lenefits which
would accrue from removing labour
from where it was redundant to places
where it was in great demand, and would
be for millions of years to come. 'I he
working classes, as they are called,

their wealthier neighbors. They have

Scotland. A moment's reflection would

In discu--sing the eju.ilifieaiions of j lMtoks fL,v ,,..;,. children, without know
teachers. I have named four thing: j j,, w!ietiior there is another look iu the
1st, a purpose to make teaching a per- st.hool like it. We often hear it urgeJ,
mr.nent husiue-s; 21, careful and thor
ough training for the work; 3rd, warm
sympathies for children; 4th, rlrmne.-s in
l-.olding children to the school room,
"getting I 'S oris," storing and training
the mill.!. Let mo now name a oth
eiualiiicatk'ti- a demand for adequate j
pay. Teachers cannot afford to make ;
antee of fair suj port. To prepare
themselves for their work they must
take several years for study in tl.e Nor
mal M-hool cr some equivalent school.
These years are generally the very best
years of a young man or womMi's life in
which to lay the feuti dationsofa suc
cessful business career, to learn a trade,
to begin to accumulate. Now the young
rcan who propose s to faun gets his land
broke and fenced. Jhis lit tle house built, hij
team and farm implements, and is ready
to make his way in the World. The
clerk in the store serves h;s apprentice
ship, and is established as a partner in a
responsible Grin. The apprentice to a
trade gets that trade and his stock of
tools. All these expect the years of
preparation they have spent will tell
upon their subsequent success, will give
them a corresponding increase of pay,
and they ought. The merchant knows
that if is ibr his advantage to pay a good
accountant, and book-keeper and sales
man good wages, even thouirh he miht
hire cue wit boat experience for half the
money. But when we come to the iui-
mea.-uiuoiy more important matter ot
mouldimr the intellectual life of our
children we seem to !oe our common
sense and common prudence. We don't
ask which teacher has the highest fit
ness, but which will work for the least
m ne. Two tcaehers last winter ap
plied in one of our Southern counties for
a fchool. The directors were men of
real sagaeiiy. They a-ked the young
men their price. One rcplieel $') a
month; the other offered to teach for
$ :o. '1 he directors asked the first if he
could not lower his term, lie promptly
replied "No." The diiectors as promptlv
engaged h:m, to the great surprise and
disgust of his competitor. But th? re
sult justified the s-ehoo! directors. Their
man t.iutht the best school they ever
had, and the other man made a misera
ble failure in a neighloiing di.-tiict.

THE M(r.ii: (JtLSTIOS,
Editor IIkr.VI.D: A great deal has
been said about ordinance No. C. passed
lately by our City Council, an ordi
nance lieenlng all business in the city.
Now, Mr. LUitor, I fur c ne think it a
good move. Our draymen have been
icensed fur five years, and neither you
nor I, nor anyone else, have heard a

(the draymen) are poor men, and have
paid their license all this time, and no
one ever thought of repealing it. But

Don't you see that the tax-payeis wero
paying three times over for work done,
all for want of funds? Besides, anyone
could ccuic and begin business under the
old law, in the early part of the year,
and their goods woul 1 not be assessed
until the next year, and then they would
not have to pay a cent for taxes for four
teen or fifteen months more; and if
thine did not suit them they could leave

A man to be a coo 1 teacher must have
ambition and judgment. What man
possess log thoe qualities would take
teaching as a profession ? The few who
teat h in towns where dwelling houses
may be rented rea l.ly, can support
their families and accumulate something
besides. But the great majority who
must teach in the country, in oi ler to
make anything more than a living, mu.-t
remain single, and like the restored beg
gar, be ready to take up their bed and
walk. It is often said that in this coun
try the majoiity of teachers are very
poorly qualified to perform the duties of
th.ir voeition. It is too true; yet the
same is true of lawyers, doctors and
clergymen. Much of tlie blame rests
upon the parents aud guardians. Not
one in ten visit their district tchool once
a year. If they should put as many

Coal A I. rati Mrurlt .e.ir Kioi:x 'ily.
The present prospect is decidedly fa
vorable f' r the development of a rich
coal mine in the near vicinity of Sioux
City. Capt. J. W Young, oY this city,
yesterday informed us that a fine vein of
coal, two feet in thickness, had been dis,
covcrt el u the lan l of Mr. Brughier,
near the mouth of the Big Sous river,
not more than three miles from this city.
We were further informed that Mr.
Young had arranged with Mr. Brughier
for a thorough examination of the
groutiel, and also perfected an arrange
ment for mining, if the prospecting
should result favorably. Mr Young,
accompanied by o:peiiei:ccd miners, wiii j
go out this mormng 'or the. purpose ot
commencing operations. lb appears to
feel confident that rich coal discoveries
have been made, and he apprehends
tint mine wiil soon be opened rivaling
those ed' Fort Dodge. W'e trust his
h q.t s May be well founded, and that all
iii-anticipa'ions may be speedily realized.
