It is the well established axiom, that the strength and permanency of republican institutions depend upon the intelligence of the people, that gives such deep interest to all educational questions. The mind must be judiciously cultivated before it can properly estimate and comprehend the value oi our liberties, or pursue the best means of maintaining them. Ig norance has, in all ages, been the victim of tyranny and superstition; while knowledge, education, in telligence, have paved the way and sped the march of freedom and true religion. These remarks have been suggested by the peru sal of a report made to our House ot Assembly, on the 10th iustant, by Mr. Ludlow, from the com mittee on colleges, academies and common schools, to which was referred that part of the Governor's message relating to public instruction. This re port is chiefly directed to the question which has been raised by the petitions of sundry persons praying for the repeal of thj act creating the office of County Superintendent. It is adverse to their prayer, and gives proofs of the'beneficial practical workings of the present system. The office under discussion, was created by chap 260 of the laws oi 1341, which gives the most liberal powers to the in cumbent " to promote sound education, elevate the character and qualification of teachers, im prove the means of instruction, and advance the in terest of the schools committed to his charge." By a subsequent act, passed in 1843, appellate jurisdic tion was conferred upon these oflicera in all school district controversies; and they were subjected to removal by the State Superintendent, upon mal couduct. The effect of this system upon education, throughout, was admirably described by Mr. Young, the State Superintendent, in his last an nual report " Seventy county officer!, possessing the confidence of | Heir fellow citizen* generally, distinguished their fellow citizens generally, distinguished by their devotion to the cause of educetion, for their scientific attainments and moral worth, acting undor tho imme diate direction and supervision of the State Superintend ent, and each within the jurisdiction assigned to him, carrying into efficient operation, a system of supervi lion, instruction and discipline, sanctioned by the moat enlightened experience of tho ago, aided and sustained by nine hundred town officers, imbued with the same spirit, and participating in tho same generous emula tion, and operating directly or indirectly, through tho agency oi the trustees, upon the teachers of olaveo ; thousand school districts, necessarily exert o powerful , influence in carrying forward the spirit of improvement, in diffusing knowledge, and promoting tho advancement | ol sound learning." Yet, notwithstandingthe evident excellence of such a system?notwithstandingthe beneficial experience we have had of it?repeated attacks have been made against it by a small minority of those concerned m the matter. Petitions were presented to the Legis lature for its abolishment in 1842; but the committee on literature, to wtiich they were referred, unani mously reported against them, and the House con curred in the report by a very large majority. At the session ot 1842 another assault was made, but the same committee again reported adversely to any change in the existing system. The present attack has met with the same fate, at the hands of the com mittee to which it waa referred, and there can be no doubt but that the Legislature will sustain the re port. The great advantage which our school system has over any other,will therefore be still enjoyed,and the complimentary tribute of admiration paid by Ho race Mann, the distinguished Secretary ot the Mas sachusetts Board of Education, be fully justified, when he said that Ths great Stats of Mew York, by mesas of bar county superintendents, State Normal Sohool, and otfcerwi**, U oarryiog forward the work of popular edu cation, more rapidly Itu ?u? otter State in the TTuiob, ???????Hfomin the or any country'in the world." It is indeed the pride of the Empire State that in education, no lesa than in commerce and agricul ture, she bears the palin from her sisters of the (Juion. In this, as in all other things, her motto is " Exceiswt"?she has accomplished much, but her inarch is still onward. The report under notice states that " The course of instruction pursued in our common schools hss become more elevated, in addition to or thography, English grammar, geography, and arithme tic, which a few years since cenetitnted foe mo?t promi nent details of common sohool education, there ere now taught in a large msjorty of foe district*, algebra, che mistry, astronomy, end vocal music, natural philosophy, aud not unfroquently physiology, surveying, book keeping, and the higher branches of the mathematics. As a further atop in the march of improvement, the Le gislature of this Siate.in 1844,established the State no-mal school, as a valuable auxiliary in onr great educational system. From this source is destined to flew an efficient and capable corps of teeohera, versed in ail tho most im proved methods of imparting instruction, and thus dis seminating tho benefits ot education into ovary sootfon of our State, and throughout foe bounds ot foe Union." After contemplating a system so excellent in every 1 particular as that of New York, it is painful to a friend ot popular education to witness the misera ble abortions wbicb, in some of the States, are digni fied by the name of school-systems. The recent re port submitted to the Legislature oi Louisiana, by the Secretary of State, is a just illustration of the in judicious manner in which the public money may ?e squandered,and utterly wasted by an ill-contrived system of edncation. It appears that " In Points Coups*. 61 pupils cost th* Stat* $800 ; in .St. Martin, 01 cost $000 ; in Caldwsll, 49 cost $060 ; in Livingston, 93 cost $000 ; in Carroll, 130 cost $800 ; in Natchitoches, 07 to 78 cost $800 : in St. Tammany, 103 coat $800 ; Jefferson Callage, which coats $10,000 a year, is rapidly on th* decline. Its scholars dwindled from 33i, in 1843, to 63 in 1840. Its debt is $00,193 43; its asset* are valued at $130,004 70." It is astonishing that such extravagance and gross mismanagement could have ever taken place. The New Orleam Tropic, in the course ot some very just remarks upon this subject, says : " That $48,430 war* distributed by th* Stat* last year to.31 parishes, for purposes of jiubiio education; which, with the sums to Jefferson end Franklin Colleges, make* $00,930 70?money that, except in soma part* of th* State, has been lavishly expended to comparatively little purpose." We fear that Louisiana is not the only State that ia cursed with a defective system ol public educa- | lion, and the beat remedy they can apply ia to adopt i that which, as we nave seen, ia in such successful I operation in New York.

The above is an accurate likeness of Orrin Wood ford, who murdered hia wile in Connecticut, in the summer of 1845. The prisoner was tried in the Su perior Coart ol Hartford county, Chiet Justice Wil liams aud Judge Hinman on the bench; but the jury could not agree upon a verdict, and the case laid over till February last, when the prisoner was again tried. From a report of the trial, published at Hart ford, aud lor aale in this city by Messrs. Taylor ?te Co.; Hurgess, Stringer and Co.; Mr. H. Graham, and George Dexter, 30 Ann street, we extract a few of the circumstances connected with the murder and the trial.

More of the Freshet*. [From the Beef or Whig, March 31.] The weather is now foggy, warm and muggy, and eats away the snow and ice very rapidly. The nver is ris ing, and at this place, where the nsaal ebb and flow is nbout a dexen feel, it doe* not now esoeed three feet: of course the river is much obstructed with ice. Fears be gin to be entertained of a great freshet. We hear this morning, that the bridge spanning the river at Oldtown, twelve miles above this city, has been carried away by the ice and freshet. We have no particulars, but credit the story, as we know that the bridge was yesterday in great peril. [From the Haverhill Oaxette.] Esev Basoroan, March 18 ?Last Sunday l.irhi renew ed the scenes of March 8, 1818, with appropriate addi tions. About eight in the evening, the ice began to move and crowd upon the shores : but lay still for most of the time till about 1 o'clock in the morning, when the whole jam from above came down, Ailing the river with water and ice, te the depth of 30 feet, and at the bend of the river, near Mr. Gree cough's the ice was shoved up on the shore near FO feet above low water mark, it soon stopped, Ailing the river with a Jam of ice, from the Ferry to Currier's shoels. From this time the water rose gradually dating the day, making the whole rise of the river, by measurement twenty-two feet above common high tide. The water eeme over the prin cipal floor in the dwellings of Moses Cole, E. J. Hardy ?. Co. T.

Oreeoough's. The water wee from twelve to fifteen inches higher than in March, 1818, which was then high er than memory or tradition had recorded, sines the set tlement of tho town, it did somo damage to building*, fences and trees, end fell away between 7 and 8 in ta* evening, leaving many traces of its ravages, end piles of ice, much ot wnich is from one to two foot thick, which will bo worth looking at for week* to coma. He mains of buildings, bridges and fences, were scattaied among tho ice, and many men might be seen elT on the jam of Ice, near iho middle of the river, to gratiiy curios ity, or secure tho wrecks. The roof end other parte of a barn were cnt np and brought to tho shore here, and Little River bridge, Irom Hev.rhill, lay ueer CarUteoO Crek all day, and man ware seen at work upon it Pro bably, faw now living will avqr see the river at an equal height. [From the Boeton Atlas, March 33 J In Athoi, about fifty feet of the sow dam recently erected by Mr. Lyman Kendall across Miller's riv*r, just above the bridge between the centre and lower vil lages, was swept away, and a new channel cnt between the bridge and canal on the South aide.

Yesterday morning a hat,tat corput waa procured, and Henrietta brought forthwith oefiuo Justice Daly, whan upon, hearing tha caae, and taking the testimony of eeveral physicians, who decided she was insane, the juoge ordered her to be taken to tho Bloomingi'do Lunatic Asylum.

A mo tion is now made to dissolve the injunction The mfftter seems not to bo very important now, as the property re maining produces only $200 annual rent Hie honor said that the equity of the bill was so far donisd that he would direct an order to bo entered dissolving tho in junction. Char lee A Jackeon, vs. Simeon Lease.?In this case an attachment is prayed for against the defendant-flsat, for an alleged violation of an Injunction; and secondly, for not signing a consent, aa ha was required to do by the order of the Chancellor. His honor thought that thers waa not sufficient evidence to adjudge the defendant guilty of violating tho injunction; but ho come to the conclusion that ha was bound to sign tho consent drawn up by order of the Chancellor. A refusal to do so is vir tually a contempt of Court, and his honor ordered him to be committed until he sign* the content, and that he pay all such costs as his refusal to do so has occasioned. John Maodinger, vs. Jacob F. Ruckle el alt.? la this case a motion waa made for an attachment against the defen dant, for not executing an aaaignment. It was adjudged to be a contempt oi court for not executing the assign - ment, and the attachment waa tbetefore granted. Tula order, however, was not to prejudica the rights Of his wife, or her children by a former husband. Afary Kennarde, vs. Barbara Scatt et ale.? In till* cesa a mo ion was made to appoint a receiver. The difficulty aroae from the construction of the will of the husbaud of the plaintiff, and tha question iu dispute was whethar she was entitled to more than oue third of the propeity. Bhe claims to have a right to one third of the property besides her dowar. Tha daiamU ants, on the other hand, claim that she is only en titled to one-tbird ot the property, in lieu of her right of dower. Hi* honor thought it was doubtful if she was entitled to any more than one-third, and if a receiver w?? appointed he could not give her any more. He, there fore, ordered that the pray ar of the petitioner bo denied. Common Plena. Before Judge Ingraham. March 34.? Charlce Rnwa'd and Lauita hit wife, vs. Ileniy Beck.?
