the different Thoois toassemble, in order to form

On Wednes#av last Lincoln Adademy, in this

EdWards, J. L. Demilly and James Smith, the
Leon County Board of Public Instruction, and
considered the finest building for school pur-
poses In the State, was dedicated with grand and
imposing ceremonies. After the completion of
the academy by Mr. John Green, the contractor,
a short time since, 'and which has been con-
structed for the use of the colored children of
-this city, the boajd, with commendable zeal, en-
tered upon the task of making preparations to
celebrate the dedication of the building in a be-
coming manner. How well they succeeded in
their efforts the grand demonstration in our
streets, and at the academnj grounds, on Wed-
nesday last, fully attest.
A general invitation had been extended to the
several schools throughout the county to join
in the procession, and, in addition, Governor
M. L. Stearns, the members of his Cabinet, all
State officers, all school and county officials,
the mayor, aldermen, and city officials of Talla-
hassee, teachers and pupils of public schools,

these gentlemen were present and took an active

cause of education than. was exhibitetby those

chairman of the Board of Pablic Instruction for
Leon, county:

pleasure and satisfaction that I now tender to

tion, I accept these keys, and receive from you
this building, which is thorough in its workman-
ship, perfect in its plans,and firm and substantial
in all its parts and particulars, witli feelings of no
ordinary satisfaction. It is the formal act of con-
veyance by which this noble edifice is now trans-
ferred to the "use and behoof" of the children
of Leon county forever. It is an occasion, sir,
for congratulation and joy, not only on the part
of the children, but of the parents and all the
people. Sir, your task is done, and well done.
Ours from this moment begins anew under in-
spiring circumstances. By this large outlay for
increasing the facilities for the right education
of tile youth under our supervision, we are con-
scious that new obligations and responsibilities
devolve upon us, and we cannot but feel that it
is incumbent upon us to endeavor with increased
earnestness to see that these new advantages arc
turned to the best account; to see that this in-
vestment is made to yield a corresponding return
in the improved, moral, intellectual, and physical
training and development of the youth of this
community. Each and every citizen also have
duties to perform in regard to this institution,
which is one of the great beacons that will light
up the pathway of many unborn citizens through
the mists of the uncertain future of our country.
God grant that the future of this academy may
be as excellent and beneficial to the rising gene-
rations as the services of him whose name it
bears was to our country and the race it is to
The chairman of the board then called upon
Mr. Joseph Bowes, the secretary of the board, to
read the following
SCHOOLS OF TALLAHASSEE : In conformity to a
long-established and very proper custom, we
have assembled for the purpose of dedicating
this building to the cause of free education. The
sounds of the axe and hammer have died away,
and hereafter the pleasant hum of the youth-
ful voices of the children of Tallahassee, in
sport or study, will be heard about these walls.
As superintendent of the public schools of
Leon county. I have been assigned the pleasant
duty of writing a description of this ach,,ol
building; and giving a history of the work now
brought to a successful termination. Thjs-1S'at-

members of the Bard ofl .Publc Instrtiction for
this county. The w.nl ut f means, however, pre-
vented any effort being made until last fall, when'
it wasthought that the state of the finances of the
board.warranted an expenditure ol money suffi-
cient to provide the children of this city with
something like suitable school facilities. Ac-
cordingly, on the 25th of last June, at a meet-
ing of the board, held at the court-house, it was
ordered that the chairman of the board and
the county superintendent be appointed a.com-
mittee, and instructed to procure a site, draw up
plans, and obtain estimates for the erection of a
public school-house in this city.
The committee at opce went to work, and at a
meeting of the board, held on the 28th of the
same month, reported that a site had been se-
lected, and that negotiations were pending for
its purchase. -
Then, at a meeting of the board, held on July
80th, the committee reported that they had pur-
chased from Mr. George Damon, and obtained
titles to, lots Nos. 58 and 65, in the northwest ad-
dition of the city ol Tallahassee, and paid for the
same the sum of $237.50. The purchase was ap-
proved by the board, and the committee con-
Following up their work, the committee sub-
mitted several plans to the carpenters and build-
ers of this city, but nothing definite was deter-
mined on until November, when the committee
obtained from Mr. John Green specifications and
designs for a building such as the board wished
to erect. These were laid before the board at a
meeting held on the 29th of November, and
adopted, and the secretary was instructed to fur-
nish the carpenters and builders of the city with
copies of the plans and specifications, and ask
proposals for the work.
This was done, and on Monday,,December the
6th, the board held a meeting, at which the bids
handed in were opened. The highest bid for the
work was $6,129, and the lowest $4,375. This
bid was made by Mr. John Green, and on motion
of Mr. Demilly, the contract was awarded to the
lowest bidder. Mr. Green immediately gave the
board satisfactory evidence of his ability to per-
form the work, and on the day following a meet-
ing took place, at which a contract was entered
into and signed by the members of the Board of
Public Instruction on the one hand, and Mr.
Green on the other, for the erection of the build-
ing in accordance with the plans and specifica-
tions previously submitted.
Ground was broken for the erection of the
piers on the.15th of December, and on the 1st of
April the work on the building was completed.
The building, as you see, is a frame, one story
in height, and is cruciform or cross-shaped. The
main hall, extending toward the north and south,
is sixty feet in length and thirty in width, and
has a heighth of ceiling of fifteen feet. The
wings, which lie at right.angles to the main build-
ing, are 82x22 feet, and contain two class-rooms
each, which have the same heighth of ceiling as
the large hall
The materials which have been used in its
construction are all the very best of their kind
that could be obtained in this locality. The fol-
lowing extracts Irom the specifications, upon
which the contract was based, will convey a
proper impression of the quality of the mate-
rials, and also of the substantial, character el the
work: The timber sills are all 8x8 inches, the floor
joists 2x12; all the studding is 2x6, and is sixteen
feet in heighth. All the doors and windows are
double-studded. The roof is what is known as a
truss roof, framed alter the most approved man-
ner, and is of great strength and solidity. The
flooring is of the best quality of pine flooring, six
inches in width, mill-dressed, and nailed to
every joist. The floors throughout the building
are deafened in the beat manner. This has been
done by nailing two-inch strips on each joist, two
inches from top, fitting in common boards be-
tween, and covering the whole over with an inch
and a half of good mortar, leveled off even with
the top of the joists. The result is, a double
floor; and the least possible noise is made by the

good white lime and .tad-, and a third coat of
lime and plaster of, ]taris making it a hard
finish. The plaster i6 i.1l on the best of sawed

The recitation roomiri.,r furnished with black-
boards, which run all' 6otad the rooms. They
have been made by I yin; on the plastering
three coats of patent iquid slating, green in
color. This method ol furnishing blacliboards
prevails in all the sch 'Is of the North, and is
the most convnient -iud inexpensive way of
supplying thi' indislenbable feature of the
school-room The twil front recitation rooms
havc alcoves, furnish with twelve dozen
double wardrobe hooks[for the accommodation
of the hats and caps of-Ie pupils.
The belfry is a neat a d, substantial structure,
and gives character to tihe building. It is sur-
mounted by a flag-pole, whichh will, no doubt, he
accepted as a snfficient4toof of the patriotism
of the Board, and will 'iveQ an opportunity for
the display of any amoaut of patriotic bunting
that may be desired. .
Comining ta the groun-again, we find in the
aorthwest angle of the ltilding a cistern with a
capacity of holding twW'hundred barrels. It is
cemented and arched in the best manner possible.

The last, and one of the most conspicuous
features of the building, is the furniture. It is
from the manufactory of the Sterling School
Furniture Co., of Sterling, Whiteside Co., Ill.,
and for elegance, comfort and durability, is not
equalled by any school furniture that we know
of. The desks are known as the Peerless desks,
and are made of alternate strips of black walnut
and white ash, riveted to an iron frame. There,
are one hundred and ten double desks in the
main hall, with a seating capacity for two hun-
dred and twenty children. They are graded to
accommodate children from thie age of eight to
twenty-one. Besides these desks there are twen-
ty-four wall seats,'which are designed for use
when the full seating capacity of the hall is re-
quired. They will sent forty-eight persons.
The Principal's platform is occupied by an ele-'
gant desk of ash and black walnut, and two
twelve-inch Holbrook's terrestrial globes, with
brass tripod stands and new iron horizon. One
of Estell's celebrated programme clocks is placed
convenient to the Principal, and can be used' to /
indicate any length of time a class may be al-
lowed for recitation. In the four recitation
rooms there are twenty-four recitation seats, ca-
pable of seating one hundred and forty-four pu-
pils. These rooms are also furnished with ele-
gant teacher's tables. Tle bell is a genuine old
Meneeley brass bell, weighing 506 pounds; and
for purity and richness of tone has no superior
in the South. The cost of the furniture, includ-
ing bell, was $1,498.25; to which is to be added
the freight, amounting to $117.15, and the cost
of placing it in position. t165.
The building itself, and everything in and
about it, has been paid for, with the exception
of $749.12, which does not fall due for ninety
days yet.
Such is the building ave have erected. Our
aim has been to supply a school house to the
youth of Tallahassee, approaching in some fair
measure to the standard demanded by the civili-
zation of the age in which we live. In the per-
formance of our work we have been actuated by
no motive but a desire to educate-and elevate
the youth under oar charge. We have attempt-
ed to win the children'by making the path to
knowledge a pleasant one, and by the influence
of agreeable external surcou tings, impress their
minds with the fact thtt-'ucation is not an
evil to be shunned or dreaded, but a valuable
possession that may b pleasantly acquired.
Whether we have accom listed our task or not,
we leave it with you to jdge.
After the reading of tl above history of the
academy a dedication hliu was sung by the
school children with finoeffect.
Governor Stearn' next followed with a short
address, which was rtcei-cd and listened to with
'the greatest attention hose present, iu which

His Excellency, on be'g introduced, spoke in
substance, as follows
My FRIENI5S AND FELLOW-crzTIENas: 1 hiast-
ened back from a pleasant visit south, where I
beheld every evidence of progress and improve-
ment among the people, and met encouraging
signs for the future development of our State, in
order to witness these imposing ceremonies.
Although suffering from fatigue and indisposi-
tion, 1 cannot refuse to respond to your call on
this most interesting and important occasion.
The presence of such a gp)geant as thi, the in-
spiring songs you have just sung, together with
the event we are all here to hail and celebrate,
would inspire any one, who loves his country
and the cause of eduqation, to thought and
I" rejoice with you to see and know that the
subj-ct of education bah a high place in your
esteem, and that you se4and feel, to a good ex-
tdnt, at least, the importance of our school sys-
tem. I rejoice at the opportunity of being pres-
ent to witness this grad demonstration-the
grandest of the kind I have ever witnessed in
the State of Florida. I w uld be glad if we could
have a like demonstrating, for a like cause, in
this county every year- ea, in all the counties
throughout the length and breadth of the State.
The State of Florida is making up and moving
grandly forward in the c use of education, while
all opposition is graduamy, but surely, melting
away. In no State of 14e South, as I believe,
according to our meanslis the common school
system more highly priced, or more efficiently
administered, i
What is the occasion this immense gather-
ing? It is to dedicate that fine building, that
magnificent structure, td the cause of humanity
and progress. There sl stands! the pride of
the architect and build, and a monument to
the energy and zeal of pur school officers and
the Department of. Education T school-
house is a landmark of our progress-a proof
that your educational acelirements and advance-
ment are such as to deniand increased facilities.
Your school officers havrshown their zeal in the
cause of education, and discharged their whole
duty by meeting with Itromptness the require-
ments of your education interests. I doubt not
but that you will apprechte and honor them for
their efforts.
It is, indeed, gratifyingto me that these things
have been accomplished md such progress made
in the right direction during the time I have
had the honor to administer the government of
our beloved State. Thin, difice has been reared
at the expense of the Government for your bene-
fit, and for the benefit of the community at large.
It is the settled purpostof the Government to
extend the privileges 'tftace schools to all as the
only sure and certain defense of our liberties
and safeguard for thd future. An intelligent
government can only be secured and maintained
by an intelligent people. The government must
have a care for the children of the State, and
protect them as its treascres, and then, when
they have come to the (nll years of manhood
and womanhood, it can/command, and will re-
ceive, its protection frori them.
This day is especially significant as the cen-
tennial ot the birth-day ef our nation, and while
we are carrying forward these interesting cere-
monies, the grand Cenunnial ceremonies, inci-
dent to the opening of the Centennial Exhibi-
tion, arc taking place at Philadelphia. That
exhibition is to last for sK months, during which
time the nation will shew to the world its mag-
nificent achievements i( the arts and sciences
during the past 100 years. But these proceed-
ings here mark the opening of a new future for
Florida, by offering greater facilities for the dif-
fusion of knowledge auong the people. Here

establishing a nursery ofktfowledge, from which

Everybody, says the Baltimore Swu.
has heard of Chesaneake R,....-tacked
ducks aa--- e--'.. o-ac'ed terrapins, and
great many people know something of
how'they taste when served up for the ta-
ble, but not a great many are acquainted
with the manner in which they are handled
by,thW'dealrs in those and other famed
gastronomic luxuries. There is an estab-
lishment in Baltimore which has been fitted
up especially for this trade, where canvas
backs and all kinds of game are kept by
the thousands in apartments where the
temperature remains at eighteen degrees

There are five large closets on the prem-
ises, built in the walls, similar to bank
vaults, and these, by a scientific process,
are arranged to keep their interiors at a
very low temperature, by the use of ice,
but in a different manner from the freezing
process of a refrigerator. In one of these
the canvas backs and other wild game are
kept perfectly 'resh; in another there are
all varieties of fish, including shad from
Savannah, white fish from the lakes, rock
arid perch from the Chesapeake tributa-
ries, and blue fish, haddock, and codfish
from the North. In another closet the
smaller and more common fish are ,
and all of the closets are filled with soi"
of the special products dealt in. For a
month past shipments of canvas backs by
the barrel have been made to London,
Liverpool, and Paris by steamships from
New York and Baltimore. The fowls are

The experiments of Profess& Kolbe, of
the University of Leipsic, in regard to
the properties of salicylic acid, and es-
pecially his discovery of its action as an
anti-ferment and antiseptic, has turned
attention to its use, possibly, as a preser-
vative of milk. Kolbe's discovery was
made only about a year ago, and although
the fact appears to have been abundantly
demonstrated that milk treated with four
per cent. of salicylic acid remained uneo-
agulated for thirty-six hours longer than
..milk not so treated, yet the question will
occur, Whether milk so treated Is harm-
-less as an article of food? In other
words, whether salicylic acid does not
contain properties which would render it
injurious or unsafe to be used in milk,
daily taken as food. From what has been
stated in connection with Kolbe's experi-
ments, we are led to conclude that it is
not ijurious when so used; still, more
e'-t,-,1.11.i 9xperiments should be madeoto
,i--r uI. point, so as to leave no doubt as
to its properties in this regard,
For several days Kolbe took daily, in
four parts, J gramme (solution in water in
the proportion of 1 to 1,000), without the
slightest bad effect. After an interval of
eight days he, for five successive days,
took double the former dose, and for two
successive days he took 1i grammes. In
the meantime his digestion was entirerj
normal; there was no feeling of oppres-
sion in the stonmaclh nor did he experience
any inconvenience whatever. Other phy-
sicians who, at his request, made the same
experiments, confirm these results. It
must not, however, be taken in the form
of a powder, for in that shape it attacks.
the mucous membrane of the mouth and
sesophagus ; it must be taken in solution.
According to an article in the Popular
Science Monthly, from which we gather
these facts, it is stated that eggs immersed
for an hour in a solution of salicylic acid,
were at the end of three months as fresh
as at first. Fresh meat dusted over with
the acid keeps its freshness for weeks..
When about to be used, the meat may be
dipped into water to remove the acid.
Kolbe has employed it as a wash for the
teeth and mouth, and asserts that it is
very effectual in purifying the breath. It
is stated also to be valuable as a means
for keeping water sweet on shipboard.
If all the statements concerning salicylic
acid be trustworthy, its use in the dairy
in various ways may prove of advantage,
and perhaps some of our dairy experi-
menters will make some tests with thigh
new antiseptic, showing its value in the
management of milk.
If any of our, readers 'have any facts
that go to show that salicylic acid is not
a safe article to uselfor the preservation
of-' foods, we should be glad to hear from
them and print their views on the sub-
ject.--ural ew NtYorker.

A long experience has convinced me

Every one who has seen a thermometer
has seen "7iro." The word is from the
Spanish, and .means empty, hence, noth-
ing. It was first used on a thermometer
in 1709 by a Prussian merchant named
-Fahrenheit. The Northern Christian Ad-
vocate thus tells the history of zero and
the man who first used it as a register of
the cold:
From a boy he was a close observer of
nature, and when only nineteen years
old, in the remarkable cold winter of
1709, he experimented by putting snow
and salt together, and noticed that it
produced a degree of cold equal to the
coldest day of the year.
And that day was the coldest day that
the oldest inhabitant could remember.
gabriel was the more struck with the
coincidence of his little scientific dis-
covery, and hastily concluded that he had
found the lowest degree of temperature
known in the world, either natural or
He called the degree zero, and con-
structed a thermometer, or rude weather-
glass, with a scale graduating up from
zero to boiling point, which he numbered
212, and the freezing point 32, because,
as he thought, mercury contracted the
32d of its volume on being cooled down
from the temperature of freezing water
to zero, and expanded 180th on being
heated from the freezing to the boiling
Time showed -that this arrangement,
instead of being truly scientific, was as
arbitrary as the division of the Bible into
verses and chapters ; and these two points
no more represented the real extremes of
temperature than from Dan to Beer-
sheba" expressed the exact extremes of
But Fahreliheit's thermometer had been
widely adopted with its inconvenient
scale; and none thought of any better
until his name became an authority; for
Fahrenheit finally abandoned trade and
gave himself up to science. Then habit
made people cling to the established scale,
as habit makes the English cling 'to the
old system of cumbrous fractional money.
The three-countries which use Fahren-
heit are England, Holland and America.
Russia and Germany use Bame'* ther-
mometer, in which the boiling point is
counted 80 degrees above the freezing
point. France uses the centigrade ther-
mometer, so called because it marks the

Novices in floriculture make frequent
failures with minute seeds, like those of
Lobelia, the Mimulus, and the Calccolaria,
and even experienced florists'do not al-
ways succeed with every sowing, as such
seeds are very delicate and germinate
only under the most favorable conditions.
Have the soil in the pot, pan or box (a
shallow box is the best), composed of
leaf mold and clean 'sand, two parts of
the former to one of the latter, sifted, or
otherwise made very fine; Make the sur-
face even and smooth, and press slightly;
then sprinkle it by holding a wet brush
over it and drawing the hands across the
bristles so as to throw a fine spray upon
the soil. On this prepared surface sow
the seed, and scatter over it the slightest
&possible sprinkling of fine, clean sand.
-Now cover the pot or box with a pane of
glass,.and keep it in the shade, watering
when.necessairy with a spray from a
brush as before directed. The soil must
not be permitted to get dry, nor must it
ever be deluged with water. If the seeds be
sown, as is generally the case, on a loose
surface, and then watered from a water-
ing pot, they are mostly carried down with
the water so deep into the soil that it is
impossible for them to germinate.
The Wild Goose plum has lost favor in
some quarters on account of a host of
spurious varieties disseminated under its
name. We have frequently spoken of
the Wild Goose-we wish it had a better
name-as a most desirable plum, and we
have spoken from experience. We have
said also, that, while we highly recom-
mend it, we do not wish to convey the
idea that it is equal in quality to a Gage.
Till we can more readily circumvent the
curculio, we cannot have the Gages with-
out more trouble and expense than they
are worth. Lacking them, let us be
thankful for the Wild Goose, even with
its absurd name, for though not exactly
curculio-proof, it will give us a crop
every year in spite of the "little Turk."

One of the dangers of the home-life is
this habit of disrespect-that which is
bred by familiarity. People who are all
beauty and sunshine for a crowd of
strangers, for *hom they have not the
faintest affection, are all ugliness and
gloom for their own, by whose love they
live. The pleasant little prettiness of
dress and person adornment, which mark-
the desire to please, are put on only for
4J, l .4-sf' those whose admiration
goes for nothing, while the house com-'
panions are treated only to the ragged
gowns and thread- a g e
hair and stubby beard, which, if marking
the ease and comfort of the sansfacon of
home, mark also the indifference and dis-
respect which do so much damage to the
sweetness and delicacy of daily life. And
what is true of the dress is truer still of
the manners and tempers of home, in
both of which we find too often that want
sof respect which seems to run' side by
side with affection and the custom of famili-
arity. It is a regretable habit under any
of its conditions, but.never more so than
when it invades the home and endangers
still more that which is already too much
endangered by other things. Parents.
and up-bringers do not pay enough atten-
tion to this in the young. They allow
habits of disrespect to be formed-rude,
rough, insolent, impatient-and salve over
the sore with the stereotyped excuse:
"They mean nothing by it," which, if we
look at it aright is worse than no excuse
at all; for if they really do mean nothing
by it, and their disrespect is not what it
seems to be, the result of strong anger,
uncontrollable temper, but is merely a
habit, then it ought to be conquered with-
out loss of time, being merely a manner
that hurts all parties alike.--London

A paper submitted to the Royal Artil-
lery institution on the subject of the
eighty-one-ton tun, by Major Maitland,
R. A., assistart-superintendent of the
Royal Gun Factories, shows that the
weight of iron ised in the production of
such a gun is 16' tons, of which more than
half has been cut tb waste, in turning off sur-
faces and ends ofeoils, so as to obtain a fine,
clear metal, free l'omflaws; but the metal
turned off is, of ionrse, used again. The
steel tube from vhich the lining is formed
weighs sixteen aid one-half tons, and its
manufacture isthe specialty of Messrs.
Firth, of Sheffidd. It is of crucible steel,
being melted in ,bout 240 small crucibles,
whose contents fre run into a large mould.
The object of tli steel tube is not so much
to afford transverse strength as to furnish
a good and impelietrable surface. In fact,
the Woolwich guns are constructed to
stand with safety even if the tube should
split. The principal of shrinking on suc-
cessive layers-'efwrdfubt iron coils affords
very great strength to the system, since
by its aid the strain of discharge is trans-
mitted to the very interior of the .gun,
which thus adds its quota to the resist-
ance. Ot the carriage designee and manu-
factured for firing the eighty-one-ton gun
on a line of rails, Major Maitland says. it
has proved very successful, having sus-
tained the shock of firing without any
material damage Speaking of the differ-
ent gunpowders employed with the gun, he
says that size of grain is the true coitroll-
ing element, and the three sizes tried rise
from cubes of one and one-half inch to
two inches, weighing from six to the
pound to five in two pounds. Powder is
not a true explosive like gun cotton and
dynamite, but a substance burning with
great rapidity. As a large grain will take
longer to burn than a small one, the larger
ones give off their gas with'deliberation
sufficient to permit the shot to move
quietly away before excessive pressures
can be set up. At present a powder of
1-7. inch cubes worked up from the old
large-grain powder has proved the best.

of expense were added in, it would be

making rnoney-over the left-by exclu-
sive cotton-culture. Live at home-raise

A t toy has recently been introduced
which when harmlessly used is of no dan-

of great injury and malicious mischief.
It consists of a rubber bulb, to which is
attached a tube and a small squirt; the
bulb can be filled with water, and by
pressing upon it the water is forced out
in a jet. Some rascals have, however,
used oil and other destructive substances,
and devoted their attention to ruining la-
dies' clothing. Tkis was done at the Rink
