sked to allow them to be printed. It is fair to presume that he would not at that meeting state his facts any less strongly or clearly than he did to Brooks on that long voyage, so that we may regard these statements as being those on which Brooks based his enthusiasm for the Prussian system. Remarks on the relation between Education and Crime in a letter to the Rt. Rev. William White, D. D., president of the Philadelphia Society for Alleviating the Miseries of Public Prisons, by Francis Lieber, Ll. D. To which are added some observations by N. H. Julius, M. D., of Hamburg, a corresponding member of the society. Published by order of the society, Philadelphia, 1835. The well-known-and since Mr. Cousin published his interesting report-far-famed Prussian system of national education went properly into practice in the year 1819, and has three fundamental principles and supporting pillars. First, the creation of seminaries or schools for teachers in the elementary schools, o
A small mistake in the date. --Dr. Francis Lieber, editor of the Encyclopedia Americana, in 14 volumes, and formerly Professor in the South Carolina College, stated at a late meeting of the New York Historical Society, to honor the memory of Mr. Pettigrew, of Charleston, that the Nullifiers in 1832 had prepared to massacre tanation and turn of the difficulty the battle would have been tolled in Charleston and the bloody drama would have opened. All these facts were related by Prof. Lieber as occurring within his own knowledge. Unfortunately for his reputation, a Columbia paper (the South Carolinian) asserts that Prof. L. was not in the State during the nullification excitement, and did not remove there until 1835, when, through the influence of General Hamilton, he obtained a chair in the College. Dr. Lieber resided fourteen years in Columbia, and in 1849 voluntarily signed the State Rights Association, the object of which was to protect slavery from Federal encroachmen
The Yankee martial Code. That Yankee Grotius, Francis Lieber, has been enlightening the world upon the laws of war, as will be seen by reference to another column. Among other things, he tells us that slaves are property only by virtue of the municipal law, and that if they escape during war to the belligerent opposed to their masters they become free: "Therefore, in a war between the United States and a belligerent which admits of slavery, if a person held in bondage by that belligerent be captured by or come as a fugitive under the protection of the military forces of the United States, such person is immediately entitled to the rights and privileges of a freeman." So, after all, the Confederacy is a belligerent power, is it? How long has it been since Yankee-doodle threatened to pitch into John Bull for acknowledging us as belligerents?

There was evidently a stir in the rebel camp for a general movement. The Yankee Mode of carrying on the war officially published. The Yankee War Department has officially proclaimed the instructions in the government of the armies of the United States in the field, prepared by Francis Lieber, Ll. D., and revised by a board of officers, of which Major General E. A. Hitchcock was President. Having been approved by the President of the United States, he commands that they be published. Among other things the instructions set forth that a place, district, or country, occupied by an enemy, stands, in consequence of the occupation, under the martial law of the invading or occupying armies, whether any proclamation declaring martial law, or any public warning has been issued to t
ty dollars. B. F. Perry, Provisional Governor of South Carolina, seven hundred and fifty dollars. Lewis E. Parsons, Provisional Governor of Alabama, one thousand dollars. James Johnson, Provisional Governor of Georgia, one thousand dollars." And in reply to inquiry, whether any person was filling office not authorized by law, says that, in August last, an office was organized in the Adjutant-General's Bureau for the collection, safe-keeping and preservation of Confederate archives, and Dr. Francis Lieber was appointed chief of that Bureau. The reason of this appointment was the necessity of having archives collected by a publicist of known character and reputation, in order that they might be available to good, without delay. He has received the sum of two hundred and forty-one thousand seven hundred and eighty-four dollars, out of provost funds in charge of Adjutant-General. It was his expectation that if this appointment should be considered one not authorized by any existing law,
