The coarse of lstretin Is deJiged with refer
ence to the teachber' vocation. An intention to ab
teach is a requisite for admlsslon to the school. D.
The elementary studies of the scheole are ne k. a
viewed, under experlenaed teaso who a re
quired to llustrate the mosts a l methods of M
communeatlng knowledge to the young. The by
history of education forms a dtinetcdepartPlest I
of the school. and the dimoreht saytems of mietro- we
tios which nve marked the progress of the C
morning, from 9 A.x. to Lro. , and on the Of
ternoon of each public shoool day, from 4do b} PI
F. x. A number of the members of the shooat re
are actively engaged In public or private schools, ap
and several come from Jefferson City. The at- be
tendance is good, the rtue being strictly enforced
with respeot to memberbhip. A desire to avail ye
themselves of all the privileges ooered by the
school ia characterbtic of many who attead, sad ye
whose seal sad Intellectal sability, re and pre. Pc
vione cultivatioa relieve the teachers from the ne- wl
oeesitlee of diselpline, which me often make the an
drudgery of the schbeolroom. v
Ihere are eight professors sad lady teachers
connected with the schoel, all of them of skill and ab
proficiesy In their calling, and ooupytag premi- oe
sent positions an conaection with the poubi N.
schools. There are also two additional teahers
of the modern languages, who are not included ia LI
the carps of Instrator, but whee ases are ge
formed in the school.
Before the late war the Noarmal hol was he
aided by anunal appepriordis from the State, re
with occasional saieatnoe from the city Common tic
Council. Since then the Leglature has extended
no aid. The city achool board has never had suf- 01
ficient funds at command to employ teachers at at
stated ealariee, or assume meeh pecuniary oblige- *
tios as would place the Inatitoton speo the same
basis with the city schools. ]very encourage
meat, however, has been extended to the enter
prise. The fine bliding aon Brgady street,
when not required for the Osetral High School- 1
the furniture and apparatu necessary for the se
of the teachers, have bean placed at their die J
posal. There is a setndiag committee of the
, of which E. Bermudes, Moq., has recently
been unanimously re.leoted chirmua, charged
with the general administration of the arhool, sad
the reports of the committee from time to time '"
have exhibited the efficient and auooeesfl work
ing of the sebool.
The services of the proatesorsand teahers have
been given gratuitously-a fact which speaks
much io their praise. An appropeoaton of two Pt
thousand dollars for the encouragement of the
school was made last year. by the general pent
of the Peabody educational fond, madly through
the exertions of R. M. Luaber, Esq., local agent
of the fund, whose interest and labors is the cause
of public education are too well known to need
comment here. This amount ($2000) has been
lately reduced, but all the pecuniary assistance
given to the school has been thus far derived from
she Peabody bequest. The money so obtained
has been paid to the professors and teachers.
The superintendent of the city schools, W. O.
Rogers, Esq., Is charged with the supervision, al
so, of the Normal School, under the general ruies
of the school board.
The importance and luflende a the Normal ,
School In ceanection with our peeral sstem
of public education can be easily shown. Teach- a
ing, lke myA a
systematto to . winr y c
a knowledge of the facts contlned In the text
books, but an ability to reader their application t,
of the greatest benefit, both in the Instruction sad b
education of the youn. Voluntary uassoations p
for these ends, are always more efficient than a
formal and compulsory Institutes, where certain d
precise emssys and carefully prepared debates are
the chief agencies for eliciting Information or
awakening profeassonal skill. A school of young
and ealonus techers, directed by experlenced and
capable professors, is destined to exercise an im
portant influence, wbever preference is given in
the selection of teachers, to those who are :most
competent, and display both preparation and apti
tude for their calling.
We think there should be a primary depart,
ment. or "school of practieo," connected with
the Normal School and placed wader charge of
one of its lcher. L ati primary school, meany
of the dleaulilee meeantered by those who
often gain experience at the expense of their
pupils, would be aveded. Under a more liberal
financial escoaagemet than is now give, we
should expet to se the Normal Sohool takidg a
