Educational Department. BY R. M'DIVIIT. Monthly Decisions, Explanations and Instructions by the State Superintendent. 1. Directors not to he contractors : It is a violation of the school law and sound policy, for a Board of ^Directors to enter into a contract with one of their own number " for the erection of school houses. Such contracts are wrong, upon principle , and the Superintendent cannot hold them as otherwise than illegal and void. 2. Directors not to be teachers : No person can serve as Directors and Teacher at the same time. One office or the other must be surrendered* 3. Houses built by adjoining- districts: Under the 23d section, division IX of the School law, it is the duty of the directors of adjoining districts to provide school houses , as well as tuition, for pupils who cannot be otherwise properly provided for in their own district.

War witli Spain. The repeated insults" that our citizens receive daily from the minions of the Spanish Government , and the searching and firing into of our mercantile marine, by Spanish ciuisers, has caused a sensation of hatred to beat in (he brea6ts of the American public , against that nation , that a war to chastise their insolence, outrageous and un-christianlike proceedings , would not meet with much opposition. We are opposed to war , and deplore it as a great curse and- evil—but we have an honor to maintain; and it must be maintained at all hazards. The Washington Union of last Saturday has a long article on the state of our affairs with Spain- It states that the President regards the recent bring¬ ing to and examination of American vessels as violations of international law; indignities to our flap, and aggressions upon our right which will not be tolerated. Commodore McCauley is not to argue with the Spanish cruisers as to the right of search or visitation, but say to...

From the Phila. Daily News. Tlie Anti-License Law. The singular and ridiculous character o f the Act recently passed by the Legislature , for the purpose of restraining the sale of spiritous liquors, is attracting marked attention throughout the Slate, and we notice in a Reading cotemporary. the following opinion in reference to the Constitutionality o f the law from the Hon. Jacob Hoflman, of that city. The inconsistencies of the law are well developed by the letter of Mr. H.: Legal Opinion on its Constitutionality. Reading April, 19th. 1S55. Gentlemen :—In reply to your inquiry of yesterday, as to the constitutionality of the late act of assembly, entitled " an act to restrain the sale of intoxicating liquors," and what remedy, ifany, the people have against its enforcement, I can only say that I do not think its provisions are in conflict with the Constitution of the United States , or that of Pennsylvania. It respects and protects all persons having paid for and received a...

Terrible Tragedy in Beloit, Wis. From a private letter at Beloit, we learn the following particulars of a dreadful tragedy which occurred iri that place on the morning of the 23d inst. The wife of a citizen of that town was awakened from her sleep on the morning of the 23d, by a noise which she heard in an adjoining apartment. In a moment more she saw a gleam from a dark lantern, held b)' a man in that room, and screaming with affright awoke her husband, who was sleeping at her side. As he sprang from the bed the intruder fited at .him with a pistol, the ball just missing his head and burying itself in the pillow. Snatching a double barrelled, gun from the wall he discharged both barrels at the intruder. The contents of one barrel entered the man's head. and the other his body, killing him instantly.

His history illustrates the glorious advantages of our system of government, inasmuch as some twenty years ago, he entered Mauch Chunk from Susquehantia county, with his plane and saw upon his back, having walked that day over forty miles without a shilling in his pocket.
