The report of tho council proceedings
published this morning crowds us dread
fully. It is as long-winded nnd not a
whit more interesting than our dally re
port of tho pollco court proceedings.
Tho locturo of Prof. Ktugcr, Tues
day night, was tho ablest lecture on edu
cation over dolivorod In this city.
It should bo repeated in tho hoaring of
every person In Cairo who is intcroatrd in
tho public school system.
Wm. McUalc, Esq., held nn Inquest
on the, body of James Turner, who died
yestcrdav at tho wharl of this city, in n
skiff in which he and his father wero en
deavoring to reach Now Orleans. Exposo
uro was tho causo of tho young innn's
death. His father, an old man, Is now in
tho hospital, and is not expectod to livo.
Chlof Myors stormod Windsor Castlo
yesterday, and captured tho Dutchess
Doughty, who rules in Its halls. Tho
Dutclioii was lined $10 and costs. Tho
police seems to bo determined to muko tho
castlo know its lords and masters, and wo
adriio It to capitulate at discretion. Rut,
(bo tho polico mindful I) if their cruel per
secution is longer continued wo shall let
looso upon them tho merciless Mnrtha,
who occasionally decorates our columns
with her scinctillating thoughts.
Mr. J.D. Allen, representing Zuck-
riegel, of Owensboro, Ky., Sculptor nnd
General Tombstone Manufacturer, is now
in the city taking orders. If Mr. Alloii
will call on Mr. Munn or Col. Popo, the
Radical leaders in this part of Illinois, ho
will, no doubt, obtain an order in anticipa
tion of tho result of tho coming olection.
That party will then yield up tho ghost,
and its friends, in commxn decency, ought
to compliment it with a tombstone
"Sacrod to the Memory of Grnntlsm,"
and Zuckriegel is the man to promise it.
Some of tho inoU beautiful sets of

Messrs. Tabors ilros., consisting ot

Tho local of The Bulletin has en
dured the Insults of tho 'Sun' until endur
ance is not a virtuo any longer, and thorc-
foro ho warns Davis to prepare for tho
bursting of tho gathering storm. Ho says,
docidcaly, that if Davis of tho 'Sun' says
that "rich peoplo of leisure. ' do not live in
Cairo and indulgo In river excursions, that
Davis is what Greeloy called Raymond.

NORMAL SCHOOL.
THIRD DAY. MORNINa SESSION.
The attendanco yostorday morning was
about thnsamo as the day preceding. Thero
wero sixteen female and four male teach
ers prcsont.
Tho subject of tho morning's lecture
was "Teachings."
Professor Kirk dilated on tho following
points :
The first inquiries that should present
themselves to every teacher upon entering
tho work of the school should bo, "Of what
spirit am 1 made?" ""With what motives
do I enter tho profession 7" and "What is
my ntness Tor tho work I nssumo to do?"
Tho toucher must understand tho naturo
and scopo of education, its objects and
appliances by which results are attained.
Education us a scheme may bo consid
ercd both as science and an art. As a
sclonco it considers tho physical, mental
and moral condition of man and ids rcla
tlon to tho moans by which ho is Instruct
led and cultured. As an art it considers
ho means by which man is instructed
and cultured. With both its features tho
teacher should bo familiar, for tho science
of education furnishes a large and produc
tive field for knowledge with which tho
teacher must bo incompetent to begin the
work. An acquaintance with man physi
cally, mentally and morally furnishes a
foundation for tho Intelligent perception
of the moans and process by which lie
shall bo educated and trained to become a
useful citizen; and to answer in u practical
way that most pertinent of ull questions,
"How to live."
