THE PERRYSBURO vol. nr. PERRYSIJURG, OHIO, SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1855. KO. a. Lost National Ships. Our navy, as at present organized, dales i from the year 1794, and it is perhaps not a little curious that one of its first priz-s thould have been the first vessel lost without tiy mi'.; baling able, to say how she was lost. In 1799 the frigate Constellation, then under the command of Captain Truxton, captured the French frigate rinsurgeiue, alter a very gallant action. This was during what was called the quasi war with France, caused by the depredations that were made upon our commerce by the cruisers of that country, which we very properly resented. The prize wus taken into the navy, and was first com manded by Captain Murray, who was suc ceeded byCqptain Fletcher. The latter offi cer sailed on a cruise in July 1800, with a sort of roving commission. Some letters were received from persons on board of her, sent in by vessels thai she spoke ; but, though the was to have been absent only ...

58 TUB PERRYSBURG JOURNAL. Reform in School Houses. We see. it staled tliut an effort is making in the eastern states to bring ubout a very im portant change in the length of time during which the public schools are taught. The proposition is to reduce the number of hours of daily instruction one-half that is, form tsix to three hours ; devoting the three hours thus snatched from wearisome attention to lessons by scholars, to nientnl exertion in the open air. The movement is one in the right direction undoubtedly, and the reform has already been introduced into many pri vate 6t:hools in western New York, and in Ohio and other western states to some extent us we understand. The change of hours, however, is not so great in any instance that has come to our knowedge, as that recom mended at the east. The reform consists in holding only one session of the school, five days in the week, say from nine o'clock in the morning to one in the afternoon in soma instances commencing us early as ...

THE PKRRYSBURG JOURNAL. Kansas and Gov. Reedf.r. It seems just ns Gov. Reeder was starting on his return to Kansas, the President took occasion, through Mr. Secretary Marcy, to say, that, in view of his speculations in the. half-breed Indian lands, " apparently in violation of acts of congress," he, the President, felt " embarrassed to see how, consistently with li is conviction of duty," he could allow the governor, and his co-speculators Judges Johnstone and Elmore, and Mr. District At torney Isaacs, to longer retain the places they had filled ! This is prompt and effi cient very. The governor has confessed the facts, admits the. charge, brought against him, implicates clearly the judges and dis trict attorney, and attempts justification, yet the President is "embarrassed" as to the line of duty! Prompt magistrate honest ruler 1 But the governor has gone on his way, and promises to attend to the insinua tion of the President, formally communicated through, the secretary, when he g...

THE PERUYSBUIIU JOURNAL. Virginia in 1772-1855. over history, our attentiou lius been arrest ed by an account of the efforts made in Vir ginia, just before the Revolution, to get rid of the curse of slavery. Bancroft says the legislative halls of that slate "resounded with eloquence directed against the terrible plague of negro slavery." But his majesty, king George III., instructed the governor, " upon pain of his highest displeasure, to assent to no law by which the importation of slaves should be in any respect prohibited or obstructed;' and the people were obliged to endure the curse in obedience to the com mands of a tyrant monarch. Jefferson, Lee, Patrick Henry and other of Virginia's no blest statesmen united in condemnation of an institution " which," to use the words of the historian, " though the law sanctioned, religion opposed ;" and her patriotic sons petitioned and pleaded to be relieved from the " terrible plague." A refusal to sanction laws by which Virginia might ge...
