Withoutthe to use, pine-if the people are'able ra se tlie ta x and not be too much op- rjresse4'lh*i'ebyjHt i-' better to build now. Before we\ Build there', is one Question to be decideoV andl that is Where sh?U-webuild?' V The .present sel jool how's D site, is a lot 5 roSftfront by 10 rods bacl:, and entirely inafteauate to the want i of the cistrict t^ pirjE a ;new r houss Opon. If we i%tain thsoldsi.te Mr. Nightengale's place 1 or the Purdy place, nowownel'byM-r. At water, must be purchased and paid foi, to maki s a proper site. Either one of these pla ;es, added to the present sit J, w'onid, with jthe> d vantages of the public park for a plaj ground, make a g i>od site; and perht ps it may besafe to jalculate that the VJ due of the pres- en ;schoolproperfy, which would rle- cessarily h^/e to i>e shcr|flced to build anew, woull be sufficient to, pay for the neces'saiy enh.rgerient of the pres- ent site, particularly if the district should con slude to buy i the Purdy place. ) ikany say that all money laid out on the old! hui ding is si > much money thJown awiy, inasmuch as we have got to build 7 sometime. But this is not strictly, true, At the h st annual meet- ing of the di strict it wi is voted to givje the Board o\ Educati( n discretionary power to rai le $800, to make repairs on the prespn, house, if sdid Board thopght hes;, and thep the cry was, \MJoney thiown away.\ But when we look at tl te matter tare see that tihis is not so. ]V: x>aey, beyond question, is worth seven per cent, per annum. The\ interest on ihis $800 jvould be $50 ai year, makin» the eosn o| the repairs $56i Allow; ng the new house to cost ,$16,000, the i nterest on this sum would be $1^120, fr< m which iwe readily see that, by tak ng $856 from, fl, 120 a sav- ing of $264 par year would; be realized so ling as w ? were able ta use the old house repair KI.\ Hencje, so far as the mere questic n of dollars and cents, di- rectly by taj ation, |» concerned, noth- ing jjan be 1 )st by repairing the old .building, if epair or build walmuSt; and that it i i our imperative duty to make room 1 or more se iolars and more teachers is a i plain as f unlight. in mid- day, to tjio se who h ive an under- standing of the present condition of our School; and if, bj making such repairs, we can delay tie buildiing of a n.eW house f< >r a few y€ ava, perhaps, in iihei'course of time, the district may be in a better c<indi|ion t > bear the bur- den df the tas than now. The assessed yaln^tion of the district will probably increase som a, and par ;ies ma|y' in the futur^ be bet ter able to stand the tax than now. ' Chough-all may feel that the irjvestnK bt of a pre per sum, if we had the mon jy to spar<, in building a school-buildi ag» structure in our vil- lage that woi ild ne a blessing to it and our di strict, t he question still is, Had itbett it be d( ne now, orJiad it better be del lyed a while longer ?

Our election passed off'very quiejtly,' considering the ; revolution that has oc- curred in polities within three months past. Politicians appear to mak.e_ themselves ridiculous By undertaking\ to show the causes of this change. They seem to evade mention of ithe true cause of the defeatof the Bepu|)li- can jparty in this,, and other Stages, Which every reflecting man knows; to be the dishonest professions which the leaders of the Republican party have for three years past made to the tem- perance element of the party. It has invariably been found that no sooher were these Republican office seekers elected by temperance men's Votes to Hie 'offices they aspired to, both State and National, than, they went backion their promises made for the suppression of the universalsystein of license. The consequence has been that in the great States of Ohio, ijndiana, and Pennsyl- vania, afe#rst, together withthejStaites »of New York, Massachusetts, andNew Jersey, at the late elections,', a perfect disgust to Republican *ule has been ; justly evinced by the ctemperance vo- ters oJf the partj*4 resulfing in the over- throw'of that party. Now, is this any thing strange? ] In my opinion it; is nothing, simply, bat the operation iof cause'and effect,dn politics, as well as in everything elie in which the peo- ple are interested. It shows that djs- hpheslty in professions made by atoy party in power is the sure cause of its downfall,—and so mote it be. C. SI FROtf; BBASHJSB. Correapoiiulenceof tlieiCoinmerclal Advertiser.
