If there is such a eouuty as Winchester in Connecticut, »ve do not inter to that county. If pease are grown iu that imaginary eouuty we do not allude to the leguminous product. On the contrary we celebrate the Winches ter-Pease correspondence, less succulent than the pods of vegetable pease and as much infe rior to white paper as burnt peape aro interior to Uie Mocha berry. Connecticut has been stigmatized as the original land of wooden nutmegs, but we question whether anything more wooden than the letters of this pretty pair lias ever been invented by the ingenious lieopie of that thrifty Statfc Winchester and l’easc are two official gentlemen as much alike as two Peases, who were elected Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of State on the samp ticket with Governor Uawley last year. It is our duty and pleasure to inform our readers of the progress of the canvass in Connecticut this year, and accordingly to make some men tion of these two curiosities, who are as in teresting in their way as Postmaster Cleve land of Hartford was before he was forgotten, We find tlieir letters in the New York World, a circumstance which sufficiently de termines their claim to be considered Repub licans. It seems that two or three oi' the del egates to the Mute Convention at Philadel phia, having saiely returned and finding noth ing better to do have been writing letters to Messrs. Winchester and Pease to enquire how they feel since the Republican convention at which General Hawley has recently been re nominated for governor, and whether they wouldn't like to lie re-nominated too. Mr Winchester replies, “You ere correct in your understanding of the fact that I was not com plimented by the late Republican convention with an invitation to accept a renomination.” So Pease, “You aic correct in your under standing that I was not invited to accept a reuomiuation by the late Republican conven tion at New Haem” If the two letters had been taken trout that useful manual, the “Complete Letter-Writer,” the phraseology would hardly have corresponded better. By another singular coincidence, Mr. Winches ter had determined last spring not to be a candidate tor re-election, while Mr. Pease says he could not accept a renomination upon any platlorm endorsing the present Congress.— Mr. Winchester, however, declines to be the candidate of the Philadelphia convention peo ple, while Mr. Pease leaves the use of his name to the discretion of those “who keep step to the grand march of a restored, pros perous and happy Union.” These preliminaries being happily settled, the Twain proceed to dissect the Republican party with hearty unanimity. Both claim to be followers of President Lincoln, and are, as Andrew .Johnson is. Mr. Pease refers also to the teachings of the Apostle to the Gen tiles, “recompense to no man evil to evil, but if it be possible, live peaceably witli all men.” In pursuance of this policy of returning good tor evil Mr. Pease heaps coals of fire upon the heads of the Connecticut Republicans, who forgot to renominate him, by imputing to them “bitter and revengeful feelings” towards Southern rebels and Northern Copperheads. In his frautic effort to live peaceably with the men who elected him to office a year ago, he charges them with resorting to questionable measures “for the purpose, and the only pur pose, of perpetuating party power.” Not to be lacking in this good work, Mr. Winchester likewise observes that “the audacity with which the Radicals press upon Congress and the country the most revolutionary doctrines and disorganizing measures, is truly alarm ing.” The significance ofthesc phenomena is easy to unriddle. The Republicans of Connecticut are marching under their 'own colors this spring. The elective franchise which they refused to a clas3 of Connecticut men not long ago, they now tender to all classes and races of citizens. The pseudo-Repuhlicaus. who hesitate to grant to all Americans equality be fore the laws, are leaving tire party, and tire party is stronger for their defection. For ev ery deserter of the party of progress, we be lieve ten honest men who love fair play and ask no favors, will he added to it. Even if this result were not sure, the Republicans of Connecticut could better afford to he beaten oft this ground than to win a temporary ad vantage on any other. It is incumbent upon them first to adhere to their profouudest con victions of duty, aud nest to carry the elec tion if they can. The Induairinl C«llt|e. The act of Congress granting a donation of lands for the establishment of Industrial Col leges in the various States and Territories, provides that no portion ot the fund derived from the sale of these lands shail be applied in any way to the erection or repair of build ings. Tbe Legislature ot Maine has just ap propriated $L*UjXKJ to supply the needs of the College at Orono in this respect. In the ex penditure of this fund it becomes necessary to consider what mode of life will best subserve the purposes of the institution in forming the character of the students. Tbe buildings must evidently conform to the larger purposes of the college. The following remarks upon this point, are taken from the report ot Mr. Fred. Law Olmstead of New York, the well known architect and landscape gardener, to the trustees of the Maine Agricultural Col lege : An idea of the minimum of accommodation for boarding and lodging cannot be reached until a plan of government and discipline tor tbe College has been formed, which involves a duty that can hardly be definitely undertak en with much profit except by the person up on* Whom the chief resi>onsihility tor success in these all important resiiecto will eventuallv devolve. If the object were merely to accomodate tbe students at the least imssible expense, tbe more they were dealt with at wholesale, (that is to say, the more nearly the arrangements aproached in character to those which would be economical it it was shelter and teed tor so many head of live stock that was to lie pro vided,) the lietter. In that case, unquestiona bly the whole would he brought under the root of one common barn or barrack-like building. But it is absolutely essential to tbe success of the institution that during the four years in which students shall be subject to its direct influence, certain tastes, inclinations and habits shall be established with them. These tastes, inclinations and habits are such as ‘hey can afterwards continue to follow, exercise and gratify under the conditions which ordinarily surround citi zens who are actively and usefully and satis factorily engaged in the pursuit of the com mon industrial avocations of an American community, {jo tar as the College shall tail in this respect it must fail to accomplish the sole end had in view in its endowment. In mak ing a plan of arrangements lor the board and lodglug of the students, therefore, weare most imperatively lionml to consider the question ot economy, not as with reference merely to the least possible cost of keeping so much live stock, but with relerenee to the probable re sult upon tbe character, tastes, inclinations and habits ot youug men. i ne usenii, mnuentuil and suecessiul fol lowers of the industrial callings lodge neither iu barns, barracks nor monasteries. Mlnety uine limes out ot a hundred they lodge with a family which occupies a detached house with a domestic territory ot its own, in which each of the inmates of the hons- has his own sjieoial interest and eiyoymeut, while he also shares with all the others in certain common means ot comfort. It is true that a close similarity in all re spects to the ordinary conditions of family lilc cannot be expect'd to be secured to tbe students in tbe arrangements for their Ixiard and lodging. There are no necessities to be piovided ior similar to many which control the furniture and the method ot housekeep ing appropriate to the home of a lamily. In respect to internal arrangements therefore, the necessity tor something different must lie acknowledged, and must be met as a problem by itself. Hut in all other respects the ar rangements for board and lodging should, it api>ears to me, approximate as nearly as prac tioube to those which would l« considered models of healthy, cheerf ul, convenient tami ly homes. With regard to the internal arrangements, on the other hand, it must be considered that to a certain extent, the government and disci pline of the College is required to be of a mili tary character, of course there most be a military organization, it WtU r.r.a nTTT tound best to torui companies of d^m’y ,be It.will be absolutely atious of economy, that the officers ot W companies should Ire students themselves it follows that within certain limits the students must be a self-governed body, in all the mil itary schools of which 1 have knowledge this is tfic case. In one which 1 have recently visited, to which students come from all parts of the country and Irom abroad (the greatei part of whom are younger, of less orderly hale its, and less advanced in education than yours will unquestionably he), I found that the di rect government ot the students in their lodg ings. and generally iu respect to ail that which does not come within the care of teach ers ot our common schools, was entirely in the hands ot officers chosen from among them selves, and that the efficiency of these ollicers, and the loyalty of the students in respecting th®j.r a,,tbority, was ail that couid be desired. If the minimum number of persons to be accommodated iu each lodging-house he fixed at twenty, this will allow one commissioned officer, and one lull platoon of rank aud file to be quartered in each. The general character ol the houses might in that case be similar to that of the cottages commonly built tor officers' quarters in The cantonments ot our western military stations. The two cottages of one company might be pJucetl near each other, the gable ends to wards the road. In the rear of the ground between them might stand a house with its gabies at right angles to these, contain ing the company kitchen and mess-room, commissary store room and office, a sick-room and a study-room. To show the advantages of such an arrangement l must discuss still lurther the quesliou of a plan of administra tion adapted to meet the end designed to be secured by the national enuowment. It is very doubtful it real family government parental administration or domestic order Is possible in any large boarding-school or Col ■ lege, and, if not, is certain that any system ol management which assumes to be of that char acter must be lelt U. be lalse, and held in con tempt, concealed or avowed, by those who are expected to be subordinate to it It must consequently breed bad manners and immor tality. The students of the Agricultiu at Col lege will be generally of that intermediate age between childhood and manhood when, in h healthy natural development of the character, there is the strongest impulse to independent sell-control and sell-guidance, aod consequent ly tlie strongest inclination to question the right aud propriety of ail merely personal authority. For the same reason however that pupils at this age arc strongly indisposed to yield a filial subordination to Instructors wim have no claim upon their filial gratitude ami affection, they are most disposed to respeet any degree of authority which is sysiematiaal ly measured by the responsibility of those ex ercising it, because such authority implies en tire resjiect lor the personal responsibilities ot those subject to it. Now this is the ruling principle ol military authority. In the largest and most jiowerful military system of modem times it an officer neglects to return the salute ol a private,he can eomjiel him to be brought be fore a court martial, and to suffer pun isnment lor his want of resjiect to the rights of a sub ordinate. We have lately seen the efficiency of this system of discipline. In a three months campaign it has conquered an empire, and to day it holds every jiower in Europe at defi ance. It is clearly the intention of the act of Con gress to secure as an incidental advantage ol the national system ot Industrial Colleges, the preparation ot accitain number of young men in each State tor acting as officers and instructors of volunteer toives, and thus to save the nation lor ever again being so com pletely unprepared for the dutyotself-delence as it was tonnd to be at the outbreak of the rebellion. A careful study of the subject, which I made as an official duty during the war, led me to the conclusion that the element of their theo retical responsibility iu winch regimental and company officers at its commencement most failed: in which they most needed instruc tionin which they acquired instruction by experience with the most difficulty; and in which their ignorance caused the most misery, the greatest waste of Cite national resources and the most melancholy loss ol life, was just this of boarding anti lodging, d remember once being informed that n Maine regiment had been witlmut food for twenty-ibur hours, simply because the officers were ignorant ol the routine to be pursued in procuring it. I re ported the fact at the head quarters of the de partment, where it was received with appar ent satistaction, and 1 was told tha, nothing hut starvation would teach the volunteer offi cers their duty in this respect. That many men died in this and every other volunteer regiment on accouut of the imperfect provi sion tor main tain lug them in health and vigor which was at that time universal, there can be no doubt. I would respectfully suggest, therefore, that the arraugement tor providing Icod lor your students should lie as nearly as practicable similar in character to those of the army. There should l>e a supei intending commissary ol the institution who would ol course uot he a stu dent; but the students should each iu turn be required to perform the duties of an acting assistant commissary for their respective com panies. The forms required by the army reg ulations lor •obtaining supplies lor troops hi barracks should be used, and no student should be graduated with honor who could uot con struct and use a camp oveu and a camp kitch en, or who was uot prepared to undertake himself and to instruct others iu all the duties ol a regimental commissary officer. This plan could, it strikes me, be accomodat ed to the suggestions of Air. Baines in legard to the self-support ol the students better than any other. By establishing the company f und system, an esprit da enrps would almost cer tainly he developed which would supply the best possible secur ity for honesty aud econo my. As, therefore, each company, upon this [dan, would have its own commissary officer, 1 suggest that each should have its own com missary store-room aud office, and its own mess-room. Accepting the general scheme of adminis tration thus outlined, the economical mini mum pf accomniudation lor lodging and boarding may be approximately estimated as follows : Three (") cottages (odc story and a half,) each 5tixg(j tcet, including verandah and storm-house, for eaeli forty students; that is to say, twelve sueh cottages to be built during the hrst lour years alter the lirst class is or ganized. y As I have before stated, there is nothing in the military arrangement of the boarding and lodging-houses proposed which would be in consistent with a perfectly domestic character in their architecture and all their exterior ar rangements. it is desirable to give the latter this character as much as possible, and es pecially does this apply to the laying out ot the grounds about them. I can do no betier than repeat the advice I have already given to the Trustees of the Massachusetts Agricul tuarl College in this regard. Each house shouiu have a tittle lawn be tween it and the road, with a lew additions ol a domestic character, such as arbors, trellises, summer-houses, dove-cotes, martin boxes, bowling or croquet greens, terraces, hedges, ice-liouses, Ac.; constructions which would supply in every r ase real arid! I ions to the comfort and health of tke proposed inmates, and at the same time aid their education in the art oj makimj home cheerful and attrac tive. There should be (tops of window plants, a Wardian ease or two, cages of singing birds, and some not expensive musii-al instruments in each house; a bed ot hanly ferns and deli cate evergreens on the north side, and a few tender shrubs on the iawu, which would re quire to be laid down or struwed up for the winter. The care of these things—the mow ing of the lawn—the trimming of the hedges —the rolling and sweeping ot the gravel—the training of the vines on the trellises—and even the occasional painting, white-washing and glazing of the houses, should be a part of the duty and of the education of the stu dents. A squad from each platoon would of course be detailed ct a certain hour each day for po lice duty. Alter puttiug their respective houses ui order in all respects, those so detail ed should be allowed a certain time ibr tak ing care of their lawn, their gravel walks, and all the ground and fittings in connection with their quarteis and mess-room. An honora ble rivalry between companies would doubt less secure great care on the part of each to give the best possible appearance to the ground before its quarters, open to constant observa tion, as it would lie, by the public, passing along the road, and thus a most valuable sys tem of sell-education would be established. Among all the means of education which can be obtained tor this peculiar establish ment—we must constantly bear in mind, and I shall therefore be excused ior repeating once more that—means tor establishing certain tastes and habits are ol more importance than any other, because i,' the institution tails in this res|>ect, it tails in the primary object for which it is founded, the Hoard of Trustees fail ta meet their res|K>nsihiJity to the State, and tne State fails to meet the obligations which it assumed to the uatiou in accepting the land grant. The Following Resolutions were drawn up by Dean Swift, to be observed “when I come to lie old: Not to marry a young woman. Not to keep young company, unless they desire it. Not to be peevish, morose or suspicious. Not to tell the same story over auJ over to the same people. Not to be covetous,—the hardest ot all to be kept. Not to neglect decency or cleanliness, for fear of falling into nastiness. Not to be over severe with young people, but to make allowance for their youthful fol lies and weakness. Not to lie influenced by or give ear to the knavish tattling oi servants. N'ol to be too free of udvice, nor trouble anv but those who desire it. 'J'o desire some good friends to inform me which of these resolutions I break or neglect and to reform accordingly. Not to talk much, nor of myself— tery hunt ugain. Not to hearken to llatterers, nor conceive I <»'*•? beloved bya young woman. «ot to be positive or opinioimtivc. fnr ill i °P ,or observing all these rules, tor tear i should observe none? _r — • * --“■*•» unm assis tance came, insteail of racing frantically about, the number of those who perished would have’ been greatly reduced: You cannot indulge in a liealtby, manly Kastimc without some lisk; so skating should e, if it is not, a favorite amusement with all classes. Then comes the question—what pre cautions should be taken to save life aud limb? You may safely predicate of au ordinary Eng lishman that whenever a sheet of water is 1 ros tra over he will venture upon it; uud if a hoard is very conspicuously fixed upon the hanks and marked "Dangerous," the attraction seems to iucrease The dreadul accident iu the Regent’s 1‘ark in Loudon appears therefore to carry a moral w ith it which should he acted on all over the couutry. lYople will not be warned off water in auy public place. You may have your stall ol icouiuu aud policemen and Humane So ciety s ^ men—you may have your tents, your drags, boats and appliances to show t lie iniuli ucuce ol the danger, but you eauuot prevent people from venturing into danger. The ob ject then in all such cases should be to uiini imse the danger, and there is a way to do this, iu at James s Dark some year# ago, the orna mental water was drained dry, asphalte was placed at the bottom, and au uuiforui depth of irom three to tour feet was secured. No more lives, therclore, wiU be lost >n St. James’s Park aud we veuture to think tlie same course should have been taken in Regent’s Park,and all sim ilar sheets of water iu Loudon aud the country. Where this eauuot be done, soino measures should be adopted iu cases of possible immer sion. A rope stretched from shore to shore is the course takeu by the Royal Humane Socie ty; hut this rope Did fiat upou the ice not only trips up the skaters but is soou cut through by the sharp edges of the skates. We susjiect that this is pretty much what happened iu the Re gent s Dark, and that the loud complaints of rotten ropes really apply to ropes inpired and partially cut through iu the way we have de scribed. it would be easy, however, to keep tile ropes intact by stretching tuem from shore to shore, some feet from the ground, just as a clothes-line is stretched by the use of props, aud then the rope would lie always handy, aud might lie used without a moment’s delay in cases of emergency. There should never he skatiug without a rope elose by; and if two or three hurdle gates are close at hand so much the better. A hurdle gate upou the ice wiil support a body which otherwise would sink through, for it distributes its weight oyer a wide surlaee. We kuow the olyectious people often have u> take the most oruiuary precau tions; but those we have just suggested are so easily takeu, uud so inexpensive, that they ought never to be omitted.
