very sensibly says:
A GOOD SYMPTOM.-Thin nation
has within tho past five or ?six years
made marked progress in good taste.
It has voted speech-making a bore.
The gift of gab ie in low repute, lt
has "been found to be more often the
accompaniment of shallow brains
than otherwise. Genuine eloquence
of course will always be admired, and
will always be a power. But the?dis?
position to listen to more ready talk?
ers, who have nothing in fact to nay,
but who iusist on rising to articulate
the air on any and every public occa?
sion, is dying out. It has been
found that the greatest doers are j
seldom ready talkers, and vice versa.
the greatest talkers are seldom good
for anything in actiou. There are
some occasions and some kind of as?
semblages, such as political conven?
tions for instance, which, in the na?
ture of things, would seem to be
necessarily talking bodies. But it
has been found even that a political
convention can despatch business
much more rapidly and make a
deeper impression upon the country
bj' ref raining f rom long speeches alto?
gether and quietly and promptly
doing its appropriate work. The
Philadelphia Convention inaugurates
a new era iu the history of such con?
ventions. It contained orators and
pnblic speakers of unquestioned
power, but they wero wisely reticent.
Not a Sir Jabesh Windbag was pre?
sent, or, if such an one was present,
he did not dare to wag his tongue. In
these days of diffused knowledge but
few men can give any information to
an intelligent crowd. But, unhap?
pily, those who are least likely to do
it are most forward to speak. Pic?
nics and social occasions aro made
dreary and dismal by the necessity of
listening to or uttering in the form
of a speech a certaiu quantity of
common-place platitudes. The more

KLEPTOMANIA.-The Sew York
Tribune, of Tuesday, publishes the
following with evident glee:
Yesterday afternoon, a fashionably
dressed woman entered the store of
, A . T. Stewart, at the corner of Broad
X way and Tenth streets, and while
J?*' there attracted the attention of one of
* the clerks, named Philip Condell, who
thought her movements rather suspi?
cious. He soon detected her in the
act of stealing and secreting a hoop
skirt, valued at $3.40, and at once gave
h?r into the custody of officer Burke,
of the Broadway squad. After her
arrest, the accused admitted she had
stolen a piece of silk, valued at ?20,
from the establishment on Friday last.
She was arraigned before Justice
Led with, at the Jefferson Market Po?
lice Court, mid there gave the nanni
of Mary S. Kerr. She was committed
for trial by the magistrate, in default
of $300 bail. It is stated by the police
that the husband of the prisoner is Mr.
J. M. Kerr, a commission merchant
from New Orleans, who is temporarily
stopping at No. 19 Bond street, while
engaged in purchasing goods for the
Southern market. Tho woman ad?
mits she luis an uncontrollable itching
for other people's property, and can?
not restrain her desire for taking
what at the moment strikes her fancy.
The report of the harmonious pro?
ceedings of our grand National Union
Convention was circulated over the

tion that our five-twenties went up on
the next day to seven-and-one-fourth.

Southern Teacher? for the SoTxih".
There is. no fact" relating- to the
present condition of ibo South, and
having the most important bearing
upou our future,. moro, ?triking Or
gratifying than the general interest
manifested on the snbjec' >f popular
education. .At no "time heretofore
have there been so many announce?
ments of schools, academies and col?
leges through the press of the South
as at tho present moment. There
?may not be, i? fact, a greater num?
ber of these Institutions, but the ad?
vertisements of them are more nume?
rous. Thc almost universal interrup?
tion ""suffered by these interests the
last few yea?s has awakened a general
and eager anxiety for their restora?
tion, which is positive and imperious.
The same spirit is shared by the
freedmen, at all our contres of popu?
lation to a certain degree, and. will
gradually diffuse itself. among the
negroes to the remotest districts. If
the desire for knowledge is not iunatc
with him, it will b? impressed upon
them by artificial forces.
To iuit>rov*?, and mould and render
"beneficial this spirit, to direct its re?
sults and to niako them effectual for
good to the individual and our city,
requires Southern teachers for the
.South. This is one of tho primary
and essential reforms in our future'
educational/ system. The South has
never undertook to Drake its own
teachers, as a general thing, but 1ms
sent t?> the North for them, where
they are made, like shoos, boots,
hats, Sec*, by tlic wholesale. They
are made for the pa/trpose there, and
aro well made. They cannot be de?
cried or under-rated, while so many
of them have performed so admirably
for us. lt is nonsense to speak con?
temptuously of "Northern sehool
I masters and New England school?
marms," while wo are bound to con?
fess their excellence as instructors.
Few schools of the South have made
reputation without some of them
being employed. They often come
to us with false or insufficient notions
of our people and institutions; but
despite these objections, and because
of their proficiency as teachers, wc
have employed them, anti arc conti?
nuing to do so. Wo pay them our
money, and when they behave them-'
selves, they? give us value received.
The only reason why v\e have hereto?
fore done so, is found in the fact that
wc have not furnished our own
teachers from our own people. Those
who have enjoyed the advantages of
liberal mental culture have refused to
enter the school-room as teachers
preferring other pursuits. Besides,
there is a difference between being a
scholar, an educated person, and
j being lit ted for thc voCidion <f ''ach?
ino/. The North lias made teaching a
j speciality in tho business of life. The
South has neglected it. In rare in?
stances, you find a gentleman, who
i has devoted himself to it from youth
' to old age; but these are exceptions
. to thc rule.
The. changes recently wrought in
i our social and domestic institutions,
; we trust, will bring changes in this
! matter. The indications are that way
i at least, and they ought to b*o encou?
raged. Gen. Lee left the camj> for
j tho teacher's desk, as Jackson had
. laid down the ferule to take up thu
! sword.- tien. (Justis Lee has just
! been chosen to a professorship in the
University of Georgia, which wo
hope he will accept; while hundreds
of Confederate officers and soldiers,
of less general fame, are tending the
fountains of learning at the country
and village school-houses in many
places in the South. A noble, battle
scarred Mississippi soldier is teaching
: a colored scJtool in that State, in the
j midst of threat.-; to tear down tho
? house and expel him from the conn
; try; while a young lady, raised in all
the affluence of Southern luxury and
wealth, in the same State, with less
opposition, teaches a primary school
of her father's late slaves. The
widow and daughter of one of the
greatest of American soldiers, Albert
Sidney Johnson, are teaching in their
home on the Pacific; while the widow
and daughter of the illustrious Chris?
tian hero, Gen. Folk, are similarly
engaged in our own State. Mrs. (icu.
Hansom, of North Carolina, an
; nounces the opening of a female in?
stitute in Wilmington. These are
: shining examples, and should inspire
j imitation throughout the Southern
States. Let the business of teaching
be pursued as a vocation, and let the
teachers prepare themselves for it as
j such, and very soon there will be no
j occasion to bring teachers from other
1 States, or to hold up to the public
tho importance of having Southern
: teachers for tho South.

Wo collect from the laid volume of j
Whitelaw "Reid-the Agate corres?
pondent of the" Gazette-entitle*!
"After the War-A Southern Tour,"
the -following relation, -which, a few
years ago, would Lave afforded the
means for a very tolerable picture in
an Abolition al mun ac-, to illustrate
the degrading effect of slavery upon
the African. Mr. Reid is now en?
gaged in the business of cotton
planting, in Louisiana; but whether1
the incidents occurred on his own
plantation or on another, is not re?
lated. Tue circumstances arc briefly
aa follows: .Tho wives of a couple of j
negroes "became discontented with
the society bf wlmt they called the
: "low down niggers" on tho planta
'tion, and induced their husbands to
j refrain from work. After sending
them all ta jail together, the naen
relented, promising to go back to
their work, and were released. There?
upon, they began begging to have
"Wc's make 'roi wuck. If ?ley
don't, we's whip 'cm good. You jus
try us. riease, Missah Cap'n, pleas?'
do. We's whip 'cm mighty hard, an'
make 'cm wuck."
"Finally," says the relator, "on
these conditions-on the condition
tliat these colored gentlemen should
whip their wives mighty hard- the
women were released and turned over
to their husbands." Upon which,
the author moralizes:
"Tho men all claim this privilege
to beat their wives, and thc women
freely concede, it. In fact, they sc.'in
to have less affection, for a man unless
ho occasionally establishes his supe?
riority by whipping them. Thc men
actually believe that a woman loves
her husband all tho bettor fur un oc?
casional beating; and certainly the
facts would scorn to warrant their
theory. I huve known cases in which
the whole force vras urouAl at night
by thc noise iu sonic cabin where a j
man was beating his wife-she resist?
ing, screaming, threatening, und
finally seizing a knife and rushing
after him. Next illuming I have seen
such couples as loving and bright as
though their honeymoon was just be?
(lau such things bc, and overcome,
us like a summer cloud, without oar
special wonder? Do all these relics
ot' barbarism remain, after th,- bene?
ficence of the Government in sending
holy men to re-nnite the negroes in
tho bouds of hymen, according to
God's ordinance, and expound to
them the sacredness of the marital
relation? And wiatt arc we to think
of those gentlemen who promised us
that the sound of the lash cutting
iuto human lle.sh should no more be
heard in the laud, when we lead the
story which tells us that, for the want
of somebody else to whip, tin- ne?
groes-the freedmen ami the freed
women-have turned to whipping
And then the tranquility and cool?
ness, the matter-of-eonrsc style in
which the thing is related-and byan
Abolitionist! Horrid! Whipping is
a negro-wc beg pardon, a colored -
institution, It is one of the incidents
of God's holy ordinances, the sacred
marriage relation. The men claim it.
the women concede it and the philan?
thropist stands by, accepts the condi?
tion, and finds tho practice in har?
mony with the order ?d' nature. Does
tho world move?
