f V h u- I dent Thc entire expense of the schools does sot exceed $300undy the present organization ; and the provisions made by the Board of School Trustees are adequate to supply the existing wants of the citv. From the ability of the teachers I have no hesitation in saying that as good an education can be obtained in these schools as in any in Texas with- out costing the parent or guardian one cent except it be a small school tax scarcely enough to pay the tuition of his child at a' private school one quar- ter. ' With the successful experiment oflast year and the experience of the Board in conducting the schools they have fall confidence that the community will sustain them under the present very small expenditure in conducting them compared with the vast amount of good they are calculated to promote in.giv- ing a good plain practical education to every child within the limits of the Corporation.

J"' K BF m Ui-T V8 w 5t m . t u . ner of Jesus will ware its hallowed and peaceful influence over that fine conn- try to which Nature has been ad boun- tiful of her gifts? Schemes of benevo- lent cnterprize are demanded to pene- trate these strongholds of superstition and error and subjugate them to the dominion of Christ. Trie immediate connection of Texas with tMajonfertunatc Republic urges an important claim upon her efforts in its behalf. Doty and interest demand the evangelization of a country upon ter borders as the interests of the two countries arc so closely identified that the moral condition of the one must ne- cessarily affect the other. Texas may be regarded as the door by which the Gospel is to pass into Mex- ico : the e idence of which imposes an important responsibility upon her reli- gious character and influence. A high standard of Bible religion is requisite which influcncc1ike a light shining in- to a dark place will tell powerfully up- on this now benighted Repu...

'Thou shall not snake vnio Usee any graven image? But where has the Sabbath departed and idolatry not entered! The reluc- tance of man to retain God in his know- ledge is notorious. It is only by the evidence of miracles and the moral in- fluence imparted by the Sabbath to di- vine institutions that the name and worship of God have been maintained upon the earth. The Jews previous to their captivity at Babylon were strong- ly addicted to idolatry; but after their return when the service of the Syna- gogue was established the Sabbath more strictly observed and the law of God read and explained every returning seventh (Sabbath) day they never re- lapsed into idolatry any more.
