f 0 Pro Occasional Correspondent. I vh pleased, Mr. Editor, to see your notice, Ih tha last issue of The Mercury, in refcreucc to .the State Educational Convention, to be held in HuntsTille, on the sixteenth of June. I most heartily unite with your sentiment, " that the cause of education is all-important." The cit- izens of this town, and county, have manifested their zeal and interest upon this subject. But it ought not to stop here. The ball is onward,. n<t should r be kept rolling. This effort, of course, was local in its character; but yet it ¿Tincas a high order .of appreciation of intellec- tual And moral excellence. The prompt action, here, upon this interesting subject, has had a most happy efti^t upon the citizens of other sec- tions of the State. This county loosed her purse-strings to the cultivation of mind, and the elevatiop of moral sentiment, and she has been compensated four-fold. Intelligence and morals shodld be twin sisters, ever going hand-in-hand, if you wou...
