SOUTHERN ILLINOIS NORMAL SCHOOL
Xcrcaalty for Prompt Action.
Tho Southern Illinois Normal School
Bhould bo placed In working order Im
mediately. The building abandoned by
tho Southorn Illinois College will serve a
temporary purposo, arid, perhaps, ac
commodate all who may wish to enter
tho school during the first year of Its ex
Istence, Last year tho normal depart
ment of tho S. I. College contained over
two hundred pupils, and tho opinion is
expressed that there are accommoda
tions for at least three hundred.
We should not be importunate lu this
matter were it not that there is a deplor
able lack, in Egypt, of educated teachers.
Directors of schools are compelled to
send abroad, !n many instances to the
East, for competent teaobers. Surely, in
this condition of affaire, it is not pro
posed to delay the opening of the school
until buildings can be erected! If this
Is the purpose, tho extinction of the
Southern Illinois College is an evil which
the delayed, work of tho Normal will
scarcely remedy. Thnt institution would
have furnished us teachers at the rate of
two hundred per annum during the two
or three years that will be employed in
the erection of tho new buildings. But
we can scarcely believe that the commis
sioners contcmplato such a course of pro
cedure. They are sensible meu,audsee
the necessity for Immediate action. The
Normal can be organized Immediately,
and, when tho now buildings stand com
pleted, the institution will be lu effective
working shape. To postpone everything
until buildings arc erected Is to arrest the
progress of education during the samu
term of time. Tho people aro anxious
to see the school organized Immediately
this year. The condition of affairs
among us demands It; and there is no
good reason for delay.
The Rev. Clark Brad en was doing a
good work, but he has been stopped. He
had two hundred pupils preparing them
f elves an teachers. With these aud such
others as may desire to enter, the Nor
mal could commence Immediately.
Such are our convictions. What say our
Egyptian co temporaries?

A telegraphic dispatch over the signa
ture of General Burnslde, brings us the
welcome. Intelligence that a contract has
been consummated that insures the early
completion of tho Cairo and Vinceiines
railroad. Genoral Burnsldo's relations
with tho road will remain, unchanged;
and the work, which nover, or a mo;
ment, has been abandonod, will go for
ward with greatly increased vigor; the
funds necessary to meet estimates due,
boing, we uudctstand, in course of trans
mission. Tho friends of the road, and particular
ly the citizens of Cairo, havo occasion to
rejoice' over this consummation. The
project is one of vital consequence to tho
country, and one upon which Cairo
bangs her highest hopes.
The Cairo directors, Messrs. Hurd and
Halllday, speak In tho highest terms of

llday and Hurd, ih tho numb direction,
were persistent and unflagging. They
devoted many weeks of their tlmo there
to, and incurred an expenso of several
hundred dollars, with no prospect of a re
turn, other than that in which ovcry cit
izen will participate. The publio should
bo, aud no doubt is, duly grateful; but
