Wednesday Morning, February 5,187 3.
We have examined the bill introduced
into the Senate by Mr. B. P. Whit to?
rn ore, which pas Bed its second reading
on Monday, to establish and support a
State normal school. Its several aections
seem to na to be consistent with each
other, aud well adapted to aeoure the
cuds which are sought. Teaching is an
art whioh requires special qualifications,
chief among whioh is teaobing itself.
Experience only can perfect the teacher
in the acquirements, aud in the taot and
patience, which ere ihdiapeheable tc his
ekill and success^ We havo always been
surprised tbat.po little has been, learnt in
this country from the admirable treatise
of Professor Pillaus, Rector of the High
School of Edinburgh, in whioh the bene?
fits of the monitorial ' system are
thoroughly demonstrated, and illustrated
-by ten years of distinguished success in
that school. According to it, as boys
become oapablo, and show aptitude, they
are advanced from one position to an?
other as instruct ore of their youuger and
less advanced associates. .The habit of
teaobing is thus gradually acquired, and
becomes as much ingrained in their nien
. tal constitution as the learning itself
which,they acquire. With the exactness
and fullness of knowledge which are in?
separable from the capable teaoher, the
sense of responsibility and the habit of
pucotnality in al] things, arc. developed ;
by thi?_ayatum -moxo satiafaotorily and '
completely than by any other. The bill
undoiv coneidoraUop. contemplates a
courae of epopial instruction and training
whioh shall qualify teachers for their
calling. It is not stated in it whether
the valuable feature to whioh we have
alluded is to be incorporated in it or
cot. Perhaps this is to bo left to the,
option'of the inBtrnotors who are to be
employed. It is worthy of their con?
sideration, or of the regents, who, we
suppose, are to be charged with the duty
of seleeting them.
. Just hero wo think tho bill defective.
The mode in which the regents are to be
constituted, their number, officers, spe?
cial .functions- meetings and general
duties are prescribed. The class from
whioh they are to select the pupils of the
school is defined. Lectures in chemis?
try, anatomy, physiology, astronomy,
the mechanic arts and agriculture, are to
be provided for. Visitors are to be an?
nually appointed^ and-, to mafco annual
. reports upon the condition, organisation
and management of the school, with
each suggestions as they may think ex?
pedient. But nowhere do 'we find any
seotion or provision whioh points out
bow the teachers are to be selected. This
is a matter of extreme importance,. The
principle of competitive examination,
by a thoroughly competent and accom?
plished board of examiners, should be
applied to them, and ^favoritism in their
appointment rigidly excluded by strin?
We sincerely desire the success of this
new educational movement. Entertain?
ing this feeling, we look with some ap
prehension to the seventeenth section of
the bill, whioh gives authority to the re?
gents and the State Superintendent of
Education to appropriate whatever build?
ings and grounds of the University they
? shall think fit and neoessary to carry out
the soheme of the normal school. Un?
fortunately, there is room there, it is
trne. But we think it of doubtful expe?
diency to enoroach npon an old
institution, and to divert any part
of its domain to other uses. It is
. consecrated in the affections of our peo?
ple, who look upon it with much interest
oven in its present deoline. They ap?
preciate the considerate aotion of the
Board of Trustees of the new regime in
its government. We believe that, if let
alone, they will again rally to its sup?
port, banishing from their view and re?
collection certain untoward circum?
stances whioh have caused their distrust.
We do not ohoose to enlarge npon these.
The Legislature, if it be wise and really
desire this institution to revive, may do
much toward it, by appointing, in a
proper spirit of conciliation, a fair pro?
portion of the trustees from the con?
servative clement, selecting men of edu?
cation and oharacter in tho State, non
partisan in their views. Such an infu?
sion would toud to harmonize the con?
flicting interests and feelings of our
people, and produce other good results,
without in any way compromising tho
party in power. It is a matter from
whioh any political feeling should bo ex?
We fear that a school of the kind con?
templated in this bill will not flourish
in Buoh oldse proximity to the Univer?
sity. Some conflict of authority on the
part of the governors of each, some col?
lision of feeling among the pupils, may
impair the efficiency and usefulness of
both. Other diffloultiea whioh we will
not moutiorr are no* anlikely.to ooo^r.
Possibly, as a temporary expedient,^t
may do. But justioo to! the normal
eohool, if designed to become a power
and influence, will require thai it have
ita own home. And the same may be
said of the University, whioh may yet ro
vivo and flourish as of old. It is not the
first time it has been under a oloud.
The people who pay the taxeB for its
support are willing to wait and work for
ita renaissance, and would justly grieve if
the opportunity should bo denied it.
ItcutoreU to the Pension I.ist.
There is some little oomfort in think?
ing that the spirit of Radical injustice
oaunot last forever. The bow of bitter?
ness and' alienation cannot bo kept
always bent. Time and the souse of
justioo will at last relax it. Under an
Aot of Congress, passed in 13G2, the
names of soldiers of the war of 1812, and
of their widows, who live in the Confede
rato States, were struck oil the ponsiou
list. They saddled all applications for
pensions from Buoh persons with the con?
dition that they must prove their loy?
alty;. By a bill whioh has juBt passed
the House of Representatives, this con?
dition haB been removed. Ex-Governor
Uawluy, of Connecticut, opposed it with
the usual staple of denunciation, but he
failed to make any serious impression.
His speech met no echo. Messrs. Wil
lard, Bingham and Farnsworth sustained
the reoommendatious of the bill, and B.
F. Butler?mirabile diclul?asked Con?
gress to discriminate between tho New
Orleans soldiers of 1312 and those of
1862. He "was loudly cheored, the
strangeness of his sentiments, no doubt,
contributing to the favor with which they
were received. Tho'bill passed, and a
small measure of justioo has beon done
"The Ohickasaws, one of tho few re?
mainingrepresentative tribes of the once
populous and prevalent red denizens of
the forest," says an exohange, "have
sent La a protest against the measures
now pending in Congress looking to the
division of their, fair lands among the
whites. Poor Lo! one can't help feeling
very sorry for him, bat his fate is inevi?
table. The march of civilization, whioh
meanB the white man, oannot be checked
or stayed, and the broad fertile prairies,
so bonntifally watered, oannot much
longer be left to an idle and thriftless
race to be used as a hunting ground and
weeds pasture." If by "civilization,"
you mean lying, we are afraid that poor
Lo, sure enough, is about to bo deprived
of the land, whioh the solemn faith of
the United States is pledged that he
shall enjoy in perpetuity.
Rev. B. M. Palmkh Again Bereaved.
The New Orleans Times, of the 2d, says:
"A large oircle of friends will be deep?
ly pained to learn of the death of Miss
Marion L. Palmer, a daughter of the
eminent divine, who expired yesterday
at the early age of seventeen. Twioe
within a year has the grim aroher visited
tbie bereaved family, and the truo hearts
which have ever throbbed in sympathy
for the sufferings of others, now need the
all-powerfnl hand of a beneficent Provi?
dence to sustain them in their owu great
affliction. In common with the thou?
sands who have been obeurod by their
teachings, and encouraged by their shin?
ing example, we tender the sorrowing
parents our siaoorcst condolence."
A Blind Confederate Hero.?Gene?
ral Adam R. Johnson is a man vory well
known in tho WeBt. Hois a Kentuokiun,
and has been familiarly called "Stove?
pipe Johnson," from a little incident in
the late war, the particulars of whioh wo
extract from the Galveston News:
"During the year 1862 be captured the
town of Newberg, Iodiana, garrisoned
by 400 men, he having with him at the
time but thirty. The manner was novel.
He plaoed stove-pipes upon wagon
wheels, and planted these sham cannon
ou one side of the river, and commanded
a surrender. The Federals, supposing
that they would be torn to pieces by theso
wide-mouthed monsters, surrendered,
and marched out and paroled."
The Baltimore Gazette adds:
"We have heard of Quaker guns at
Manassas and near Washington doiDg
efficient service, but this occurrence ia
new to ns. General Johnson was after?
ward severely wonnded. For a time it
was reported that he was dead, and ho
had an opportunity afforded to but few
men?that of reading his own obituary
notice.-). When he recovered he was
blind. He has Binoe devoted himself to
the aid of his fellows in misfortnne. His
last venture in, wo believe a novel one.
Ho proposes to publish a paper in raised
letters for the blind. He testifies Jrom
experience that none but those who
grope their way in utter darkness can
know how mnoh real pleasure such a pa?
per wonld afford. General Johnson re?
sides at Barnot, Texas, and is seeking
aid for this enterprise."

Niagara Falls Dry^qj% a T__
winter o& 1848- bad been inis??ely cold,
ted fee fee fornftd op Lake Brie ?u
very thiok. This -was loosened-aronn .
toe shores by the warm days of early
Spring. During fcho day, a stiff Eestorly
wind moved the whole field op the lake.
About sun-down, the wind chopped sud
denly around and blew a gale from the
West. This brought the vast tract of
ice down again with auoh tremendous
force that it filled tho neck of the lake
and the outlet, ao that the outflow of
the water was very greatly impeded. Of
course, it only needed a very short space
of time for the falla to drain off the
water below Black Bock. The oonso
queuoe was tbot, when we arose in the
morning at Niagara, we found that our
river was nearly half goue. Tho Ameri?
can ohannel had dwindled to a respecta?
ble creek. The British channel looked
as though it bad been smitten with a
quick consumption and was fast passing
away. Far up from tho head of Goat
Island, and out into the Canadian ra?
pids, tho water was goue, as it was also
from the lower end of that island, out
beyond the tower. The rocks were bare,
black and forbiddiug. The roar of
Niagara had subsided almost to a moan.
The scene was desolate, und but for its
novelty and the certainty that it would
ohange before many hours, would have
been gloomy and saddening. Every
person who has visited Niagara will re?
member a beautiful jet of water whioh
shoots up out of the water about forty
rod) South of the outer Sister in the
great rapids, called, with a singular con?
tradiction of terms, the "Leaping Bock."
The writer drove a buggy from near the
head of Goat Island out to a point ubovo
and near to that jet. With a log cart
and four horses, ho had drawn from the
outside of tho outer island n stick of
timber, bowed, twolvo inches square aud
forty feet long. From the top of the
middle island wis drawn n still larger
stick, hewed on one side, and sixty feet
long. There are few places on tho globe
where a person would be Ibas likely to go
lumbering than in the rapids of Niagara,
just above the brink of the Horse-shoe
fall All the people of the neighborhood
were abroad exploring recesses and cavi?
ties that had never before been exposed
to mortal eyes. The writer went some
distanoe np the shore of the river. Large
fields at the muddy bottom lay bare.
This singular syncopo of the waters
lasted all the day, und night closed over
the strange scene. But in tho morning
the river was restored in all its strongth,
beauty and majeety, and we were glad to
welcome its swelling tide once more.
Old Leadeus of the South.?The
New York World, referring to the cor?
ruptions in Oongress, advocates the re?
moval of all political disabilities, in order
that the South may "send her old leaders
to Washington." It Bays:
"Let Davis, Stephens, Toomhs, Chest?
nut, Wigfall, and the rest of them, bo
not only allowed, but enoouraged, to re?
turn to Oongress, and then tell them it
will be considered as a vory speoial favor
if they will deteot and expose the rogues
and jobs therein. It is charming to con?
template the alaority with which they
would enter upon that tusk. It is human
nature to hit back, and how glorious an
opportunity for poor, beaten, despised
rebels and traitors to provo one after
another of their conquerors and revilers
an immeasurable hypocrite and thief.
For years, those old leaders havo been
ground into tho dirt, spit upon, branded,
put upon record as compeers of Benedict
Arnold and Judas. As a matter of
course, they resent all this with concen?
trated fury, and so much raw material

effect* of gaa of .*n inferior 'quaUty, es?
pecially that whlphis rioh in sulphur,
impounds, is not,g*nerally realised. In
most cases, it is simply regarded as an
inconvenience, and -.possibly in some in?
stances as iDjurioaa to the eyes; bat
these ere not by any means its most
harmful effects. In the evidenoe taken
in England before a parliamentary com?
mittee engaged in investigating the qua?
lity of the London gas, facts were given
to show |ts deleterious effects upon silk
and other goods. One witness, from tho
woU-known establishment of Howell &
James, in Regent street, testified that
during the winter months, when muoh
gas was burned, it destroyed some of tho
more delicate colors used in dyeing silk.
With regard to metal good.-, he stated
that tho gas deposits a thin film upon
them, and unless this is removed every
day, it eats into tho metal, so that the
article must be regilded. This ncoosai
tutos the use of air-tight oases for sauh
goods. A Regont street boot-maker gave
evidence as to the effects of gas-combus?
tion products on leather, which, he had
found perfectly rotten, after having been
exposed for a period. The witness ex?
hibited boots so acted on to tho commit
teo. Tho sulphuric acid, ho said, could
bo tasted on applying the tongue to tbo
leather. He gave two inches out of one
pair of boots to Dr. Letbeby for analy?
sis, and bis report was, that the piece of
leather contained ten grains of commer?
cial oil of vitriol. Ho had also teen
wood which had beeu under tho action
of gas for fifteeu years. It wus so rotten
that it could be picked to pieces with tho
finger-nail. Ho believed gns exerted a
deleterious influence ou pictures, the
back part of the canvas being rotten.
Now, while this produces such effects
upon the.-o substances, it cannot bo
otherwise than injurious to the tissues of
tho human body. A drop of sulphuric
acid upon the hand will iustautly disor?
ganize the flesh. What must bo tho
effect upou tho more delioalu tissues of
tho lungs of a constant inhalation of this
acid? Good gas is not only a couvo
nience, but an absolute, necessity, and
inspections of its quality, not only illu?
minating powor, but purity, should be

The True Bams of Success.?Falla?
cies and frauds are short lived. They
may flourish for a little while, bat the
sober second thought of the people con?
demns them and they perish. It would
take even the "Lightning Calculator" a
long time to count the imitations and
counterfeits of the supreme tonio of the
ago, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, that
have been brought out since the first in?
troduction of that celebrated remedy.
They have collapsed one after another,
but the great vegetable preventative and
curative is still on its disease-conquer?
ing march. At this season, as the air
becomes more and more chilly, and
searching vapors affect the integuments
and create unwonted pains in the sto?
mach and bowels, it is of the utmost im?
portance to tono and regulate tho sys?
tem so as to enable it to bear up against
tho uncongenial temperature which pro?
duces these disturbances. Fever and
ague, rheumatism, biliousness, nervous
prostration, coslivoness and chronic in?
digestion are a few among the many dis?
orders whioh yield readily to this fam?
ous restorative. F2f3Jl

A most melancholy thing recently
happened to a young gentleman in Paris,
He had been dining out and wining
pretty freely, and as ho was going to the
bal d'opera, he submitted himself to the
operations of a strcot shoe-black. Lean?
ing back in his chair he was. asleep be?
fore the polishing was conolqded; bat
when tho juvenile artist fonnd oat the
condition of his ooBtomer he hastened
to improvo it. Ho gently drew off the
boots, added his victim's pnrse and watch
to the booty, gathered np his brashes,
and departed. The gontleman was at
last aroused by his cold feet, and igno
minioaaly made the best of his way home.
Thoro was no dancing for him that night'.
Prohibition.?The experience of
Maiuo and Massachusetts really does not
look aa if the drinking of spirituous
liquors can be stopped by legislative en?
actments. The Boston Advertiser says
that thoro are 2,768 places in Boston
whore intoxicating liquors arc sold in
defiance of the prohibitory laws of that
Stato. Notwithstanding this fact, the
prohibitionists are applying to tho Le?
gislature to forbid tho sale of malt
liquors also, and to enlarge the pro?
vision of a law which is a dead letter on
the statute books.
