The attack matio by the heirs upon the will was chiefly bamd on tbat clause, us will be seen by the fol lowing extract from the decision of the Supreme Court in Washington, given by Chiei Justice Story:? This objection is tliat llio foundation ol the college upon the principles and exclusions prescribed !>y the testator is derogatory ana hostile to the christian re ligion, und is so void, as being against the comtnou law and public policy ol Pennsylvania, und this lor two reasons?lirst, ueeuuse ol ihe exclusion of ull ecclesi astics, missionaries and ministers ol any sect trout holding or exercising auy station or duty in the col lege, or uven visiting tno same; und secondly, uecuufo t limns the instruction to be given to the scholirs to pure morality .mil general benevolence, and a love ol iruth, sobriety and industry, thereby excluding by Im plication all Instruction in tho Christian religion. The Chlof Justice said:? Hut the objection itself assumes the propo sition that Christianity Is not to be taught because ecclesiastics are not to bo instructors or oilicers. Hut tins is by no means a necessary or legitimate in:creme from the premises. Why may not laymen instruct in the general principles ol Chris tianity us weil as ecclesiastics f There is no restric tion as to the religious opinions ol the instructors and oilicers. They may be, and. doubtless under the auspices ol the city government, they will always be, men uot only distingushed lor learning and talent but lor piety aud elevalou virtue and hoiy lives ana char acter. And we cannot overlook, tbo blessings which such men, by their conduct as well as their instructions, ' may, nay must, impart to their youihlul pupils. Why may not tho lllble, ana especially the New Testament, without note or comment, be read and tauvhl as a divine rev elation in the college, us general precepts expounded, its evidences explained and its glorious pnuciples of morality inculcated ? What is there to prevent a work not s^ciarian upou tho geueraleviduu.es ol Cdristi uuity from being reud a.iu taught iu the college by lay teachers? Certainly there is nothing in llie will tliat proscribes such studies. Above all, tho testator posi tively enjoins "that all the instructors and teachers in the college shall take pains to instil into the tuinds of the scholars the purest principles ol morality, so that on their entrance Into active lile they may, lrom in clination und habit, evince benevolence towaid their leilow creatures and a love ol truth, sobriety and lu dustry, adopting at thu sumo time such religious tenets as their matured reason may enable them to proler." Now, it rnuy well bo asked, What is there iu all this which is positively enjoined inconsistent with the spirit or truths ol Christianity 1 Arc not these truths all taught by Uhrisiiuuiiy, although it leaches much more? Where can tho purest principles of morality bo learned so clearly or so poriectly as lrom iho New /Testament 1 Where are bouevolence. the love ol truth, sobriety and iudustry'so poweriuliy und irresistibly in culcated as la the sacred voiume? i'he testator lias not said bow these great pnuciples are to be taught or by whom, except it be by laymen, nor wnat boons are to bo used a explain or enforce them. All that we can gather from ills language is that lie desired to oxcludo sectarians und sectarianism from the college, leaving the instructors and oilicers free to teach the pnresv moral ity, the love of truth, sobriety aud industry by all ap propriate means; and, ol course, includ.ng the best, the surest and tho ni. si Impressive. The Chief Jus tice concluded with this significant paragraph:??'We arc satisfied that thero is nothing in the devise estab lishing the college, or in the regulations and restric tions contained therein, which are inconsistent with the Christian religiou or aro opposed to any known pol icy of thu State ol Pennsylvania." That the Supreme Court rightly interpreted the will or Mr. Girard wag evidenced by the conduct ol th0 Hon. William J. l>u.me, tho writer of tho will, who was a co-director of the college with ine lor many years. He gave bis cordial approval of all the means usod to Im part religious instruction and to train the chlldreu in habits of Christian virtue. Mo know that God's bless ing was nuJibly invoiced at each meal, that tho boys were in the habit of attending religious services held In tho chapel every morning and evening, and also that on Sundays special discourses were prepared for them and dellverod by the President and otuer eminent lay* men. Mr. Ouanc know that tho Bible wad freely road and taught, and that the boys were trained in tho habit of praying beiore they wont to bed. To avoid sectarianism u service book was proparod solely lor use In the Sunday worship, thus far con ducted In ono of the rooms in the main college build ing. A beautiful chapel will, however, bo erectod this season, as In six or seveu months the number ol pupils will bo increased Irora 650 to noarly 800. The new cbapel will accominodato 2,000 boys, being the number that can be maintained and educated on the forty acres that comprise the col lego property, unless tho Ahabs ol Philadelphia succeed In despoiling tho widow and thoorphan of their Inheritance. Mr. Girard trusted his estate to tbe old oity of Philadelphia, In tho nment joAoUof which there were in bis timo no politt* cal changes, and of which he was once a counciimsne But whon all tho adjoining districts In tho couuty wer consolidated Into tho city the character of tho trustee was radically changed and tho Integrity of tho trust Jeopardized through the vlrulcnco of party politics' Therefore, nearly seven years siuoo, by a determined effort of Independent and Influential cltisei.*, the charter of tbe city ot Philadelphia win so amended as to authorlzo the Judges, acting as a Board of Appointment, to elect for Jilo or good behavior twelve citizons to act as directors of cltv trusts, who. with the Mayor of the etty and the presidents of tho Select and Common Councils for the lime being, "aro charged with the exclusive control and management ot all properly dedicated to charitable tisos or trusts, the charge or administration of which nro now or shall hcrealter be vested In or confided to tho city of Philadelphia." This Board controls a large nuin berof other charitable trusts, such as the Wills Kyo Hospital, kc,., bat the Glrnrd estate is by far tho most Important trust. After maintaining the Girard College, witn its 550 orphans, at an annual cost varying from ? ISO,ooo to $190,000, the surplus Income ranges from $175,000 to $250,000 a year, which is expended iu pro ductive Improvements on the real estate. TliU surplus will steadily Increaso for tho next fifty years at least If the csiato Is Intelligently ami honestly managed. Most of tho surplus ol tins year will l>e expended in the erection of an appropriate chapel and lour twin dwelling houses, with a largo dining ball and kitchen, all ol marble, into which, bo fore the olose ol the year, 240 additional boys will be received, maintained and edncnled in families of thirty each. Ii the family system proves on tho whole lo be beneficial, as in my Judgmont it will be if properly ad ministered, then tho number of these houses can be gradually increased, and tho live original buildings usod lor school rooms lor over 2,000 pupils. Thas far the college has been as well managed as it c iuld lie under what Is known as the community or congregate system, tho unnatural and dwarfing effect of which system lias ol late years received much consideration. The boys nu entering the college arc, when out of school, under tho care of a govorness, of whom thero are five, each having a section of forty bovs. As ihn orphans advance in Intelligence they pass to the care ol a prelect, who has a section of ."evenly Itoys. Th> ro arc five prclect section#, and each boy p.Msc* up from section to section. When any large number aro trans ferred at one lime, or a new protect enters upon duty, there is, of course, the usual contention for the mas tery. With so large a number of pupils In one section room tools and other Implements for acquirins a handi craft aro ol necessity excluded. So many of tho boys lake their meals in onn riom that to avoid disorder silence Is enlorcod; therefore tbe children, during a sojourn of eight or ten years in the colleges never there enjoy a social meal. Not withstanding a rigidity of discipline rendered ne< esaary by the congregate system, the result lias been so favorable upon the 1,1152 boys admitted during the tncnty-eight years of the existonee of the college that It reflects much credit upon the ofllcers. Many or tho graduates are eminent cltiiena, nearly all or them look back with pleasure to their sojourn in tho college, and they will ooatraat favorably in moral* and religion with the graduates of any similar institution. The roliego grounds are high and well drained, and tbe institution ha* thus far been remarkable for the health ol the pupil*, who leave It before their eighteenth year, an are usoaHy Indentured to acqalre suitable trades. Under the will a preference iaadmlasio* is given !?.' to poor white malo fathering children bora within t limits of the old city ol Philadelphia, second, in tho State ol Pennsylvania; third, In the city of New York; fourth, in New Orleans Ac. As It la hardly likely that thia .State will furnish 2,< 00 audi children between the ages of six and ten?tho period limited iu the will for ttielr admission?the ctty of New York should make some preparation lor claiming its rights to this bed quest. There is, however, a persistent effort made, mainly, < or, perhaps, solely, by speculators in real ectalo and in j city passenger railroad stock lo cut streets through the 1 college property. The injunction ol the will that It should remain intact and in one inclosare will be pro f tccted by the Hoard of City Trusts unless the Supreme ! Court of the United Mates sanctions tho violation ol i the will. > The opening of streets will be latal to the interests of the city of New York, as undor the term* of tho will of Mr. Girard the income Ironi* his estate Is to be used for municipal purposes, except so far as it Is needed to erect buildings* and maintain orphans on the specifia college proporty winch Mr. Girard purchased and set apart lor that purpose. A law was passed by the leg islature of this Stato authorising, under certain re strictions and undor the sanction of the courts, tin opening of Twenty seeond street through tho coilcg? grounds. This, if effected, would rut the property into two pieces. The same law authorized, under like re strictions, the opening of Girard avenue, which would divtdo one of these portions Into two scute triangles. Tho bed ol these streets would reduce the area fout acres, and it' opened, they will, by tho building ol additional walls, largely decrease its accommodation! for pupils. The lirst jury of view decided adversely to the opening ol Twenty second street, and the Court conflpnied their decision. Being divided as to the ex pediency of opening Oirard avenue, another jury was appointed, which reported adversely to Its being opened. The Court refused to confirm this decision, owing to some legal technicality: therefore still an* other Jury has been appointed. Tho citizens of New York may rest assured that the Directors of City Trusts will be vigilant and persevering In protecting these sacred interests of latherless children and wid ows. Under one or the provisions ol tho will the val uable co*l mines ana all other property outside of tha city ot Philadelphia pass to the Commonwealtn of Pennsylvania for purposes ol internal navigation II tho trustees knowingly and willingly violate any of tha conditions ol the bequest, one of which is that Urn Girard College property is to bo kept entire. There ii an additional incentive to the exercise of the greatest caution, lor the heirs of Mr. Girard are watching closely every movement of the trustees, hoping that they will in soino way violate tho trust, and thua giva the heirs a claim upon the largo ostato.
