A corrected report of tlio late boat raco

passed Camp's .bridge, only ,two lengths

'speed before reaching the bridgo by which
they gained ,abput .threo-quaterH ,of a
length. Tlio' Judge declared that the
Harvards were only a halflongth of clear
water Jrlhjr1pnjat'tho end pf the rtce,
At tho dinner in which both crews Joined,
tho Oxfords confessed that tho race, If
not tho hardost'w'us .at least as hard'as-
any they over had, rowed.
The Harvards considered that their
steering was rather 'out, makings poss
ible dlllerence of half a length to a length,
l.orlng was rather, unwell, owing to over
training. Tho Harvards are satisfied

one of those happy triumphs In which
there is peculiar honor to tlio victor,
without humiliation to thot vanquished
Tho 'Telegraph' says tho interna
tional boat race was as gailent
and good a display of manhood
as was over witnessed iu tho history
of rowing. The Americans have lost no
honor. Good Judges think more highly
of the Americans than they did before the
race. .' , . . ( ,
Tho Americans hoped for a good race,
and they had It fair and honest from the
start to tho finish,
It Is estimated that at least one million
persons witnessed the race.
Hon. Newton Bntcinau for many years
a resident of Jacksonville, and now su
perintendent of public instruction for the
Htato of Illinois, bus boon tendered tho
Presidency of the Normal L'ulvorslty of
Indiana, located at Indianapolis. It is
not believed he will accept It.
I'o '1( vato the degraded, in the mission of
tho school teacher as well a of tho mlulstor
of gospel of Christ; and, indtied, the missinn
of the latter would be almost futile if the
former did not go before biin. It is true, the
croi-s has been carried by bold bands into
heathen lands, whvre the night of ignorance
was not illuminated by the twinkling rays
of the smallest star, and its p-jtunt pover has
worked wonderful results; but, wherever the
school teacher, upon who. mind christian
civilization has made Iu mark, has gone with
or preceded tho missionary, the lessons of tho
gospel have made enduring imprcIons,
which time cannot efface.
Ho tins Is true, no one can deny that the
schrol teacher has never yet made manifest
the spirit of self-denial and devotion to bit
calling which has characterized tho christian
Missionary and has been tho glory of bis
calliug since the day when the Apostles cpa
rated and weatout into the highway and by
way of the werld. On the contrary, the
teacher has been too indolent In bis later
bus drifted with tho current. There are, of
course, exceptions to this rule; but they are
not numerous, and only prove it soundness.
Seine tnon how few tho number I devote
all their time, all their talents, all their ener
gies to the profession of teaching, and to these
men the world owes a debt difficult to com
pute, iinpesslbh) to pay. Tbey are the fore
runners of refinement, the right-band of
science nnd the brain of religion. It is their
labor which baa made It possible for the poor
est nnd bumbjost of this land to. obtain infor
mation, which in times past not the richest
and proudest of the world could sucuro. Their
labors havn oponed to all duties of aeciety
tlio rich mine of modera and even ancient
literature. They have introduced abstrsuo
clenco into the homos of peverty, and havo
mado n lovo of art and nature' common in all
the walks of life. At their touch history hn
opened its door, so that all the multitude may
piiM through and admlro tbo wondor. of tho
past, even as the command: "Open Sesame t,"
opened tho door of tbo mysterious cave, and

Kuloirv cannot say cnoueh in praiso of

grentor is causo for rogret. Why I it so
many men give their liyo to tho professions
of law, medicine, thoology, and so few to tho
profession, of schopl; toapblng? ,Mnny, xnun
of ability begin life as school teachers, but
nearly all soon abandon tbo buslntss-aban-
don it just when thoy are beginning to becomft
proficient educntors. Only a fow make teach-
ing tho business' of life, nnd n majority of
those who do, aro not possessed of any of tbo
olements of mind and churacter which make
tbo flnlskod'teswher. It is not enough, that a
teacher is erudite, has his ralnd stored with
nil tlioleubria tnuglit in the college, is tho
qwner of a "glib tongue, ' und enn hino brll
linntly among men who lny claim to tho titlo
of scholnr. Tho moit learned of men mny bo

Thero enn bo no doubt of tho truth of thla
assertion. Thc wnywaril Wn, though a fool
may neo ovidoncs of it truthfulnosson every

truth, It Is), that ininny born-tenchort mnnu-
Cxcturo thcmsolvcj into something olso be
come hidlflVrcn. lawyers, doctors, prenchcrt
or tuechnnlbs. To nsk uhy this Is a fact is to
ask a question to which the nruiHir amnvcr is

tcr.tlio teacbecba cultivated, tho toil with
skill and healthy plants aro beginning to
spring from it, I'cnuriousness refuses to pay
him the worth of his labor, and Prejudice or
Ajigyyidi him away into nouy.lkldslu,
search of employment, where ho will nguln
pais through thn experiences of tho pui-t. Our
country can novsr boaH a system of educa
tion, n nearly perfect as possible, until touch
ers who have ability are proporly appreci
ated and liberal v remunerated. A well-
'paid teacher, in every way competent, is
worth a whole regiment of cheap follows,
who know just onougli of tho scionco to sum
mer through its olemcntary principle!, and
who would b doing more for posterity
sawing wood ton they can em.do while
bringing dlsrepuU on reputable teachers by
attempting "to teach the young idea how to
shoot." The abln lawyer soon commands a
host of clients; the able physician In a little
time is patronized by a croud of patients,
and tbu abl divine seldom ever waits any
length of time for a desirable call ; but too
many competent and skillful teachers aro
overslaughed by incompetent boors, and fre
quently in the majority of caicj, the public
refuse to pay to merit in teaching what it is
really worth. Tho consequence is, too often
the "born teachers" indignantly seek othor
employment; and the publio complain at u
Inek of ability in teachers when thoy are to
blamo. "Tho laborer is wortby of his hire,"
but the UUorr in the vineyard, .of education
Is, hi a general rule, ldrtd at u pittance which
entitles bis employer to little consideration
and is disgraceful to the spirit of the age.

Tlio Illinois Teacher's' Institute, held at
IMoomington, adjourned on August 20tb, the
eleventh day of tho icsaiau. On tlio last day,
oho hundred and fifty inumbor wure present.
The total number during the session was two
lmndred and ninety thirty-four moro than
it any previous session. Tho Institute for

Mr. John Stunrt Mill would extend tho
boundaries of actual information to bo givon
to the young very far beyond' anything now
recognized a essential; Mr, Carlylo would
imbuo tbo young mind with Iciions to be
drawn from biography and history; 31 r.
owe is of tbo present, and instead of old his
tory, would put Into the, band of youth
modern history, science and languages ; Mr.
Proude felicitously includes all tho valuable
and avoids all tho questionable suggestions of
these earnest men.
Tho Du Quoin 'Tribune, In calling atten
tion to tho first annual meeting of tho "South
ern Illinois Educational Association," to bo
held at Mattoen, commencing 30th Inst., raps
tho teachers of Perry county over tho flngors
in u very lively mannor. Thoy nre, tho 'Tri

so, far behind It us U bu totally iudill'ereut to
tho lilffh Intero.tt Intruded to them, iho
peopo of Terry county ought to loso no tlmo
in gottlng rid of It teachers that is to say,
if tbo 'Tribuno' has not spoken of them in
auger, and allowed its wruth to somewhat
warp tho truth". Tenchors, of all pceplei
should not lag behind tlio times. Thoy should
walk in tbo van of events lend, not follow.
