Special to the Appeal. New Yobk, Novemler 16, At morning aerY.ce yesterday Rev. Dr. Talm&ge preached a nervon on the "SUnghu-r of Young Men," t j king for hia text the 22d verse of the 7th chapter of Proverb, an ox to the daugh ter." After expouD'Hug a chapter of the Book of Proverb lie pave out the hymn "My Mul Ik on thy guard, Ten tfouaul tints rie, The hiMtaiif flin urn ;t hard To draw tbev from the akics." Th r mois "Sla u t li t r or V on off Hon." Tkare i nothing in the voire or manner of the butcher to iiidk ite to the ox that there Is dtvth ah4ait. The ox think it it on the way to the tru.- ture l-eld of clover where he will all day revel in ih herb, c t uxurtance. Hut after n while u group of t it -t i mihI boy clom In arountl Mm and with t L and stoneannd ahi-iit, drive him through ibnn :U'i iuui tt door, when' hf la tied, and with well-alined ulow the ax fell Mm. and ao hia expec taihm oi (1m rudeluat iiftur is diaappoiatad.

When young men are ruined we are apt toblxinc them, when v.- ought more vehemently to bUraa their drstntyen. rtooiety lUnghu-ra a great loany young men with the Wheat: "You must kep up " r u.c - It makea uo difTereuce vhat your aalary la. you must dreaa as well as ethers, give aa eoatiy cnteruimn-ut5, amoko as ex pcuftlve ctRara, wine and brandy m maxy frlenda, tind live Iti as fanhionable a boirdiuKhoue. If you crsr.not do thtsou your salary' borrow it. Make a wrong entry or take an occasional bill out of the ouudlcof bank bill; you will be ablefto pay It some future time. You will have to cover it up only far a few month'' or a year." By that process a hundred thousand voung men have been slaugh tered. Suppose you borrow. There an a thou sand clreumntanees tu which It is right to borrow. There are few men who have not some time been obliged to borrow money . The largest estate have txen built upon a borrowed dollar. But there are two klnde of borrowed mo icy money borrowed to sturt or keep up le gitimate enterprise, and money tnirrowed to get things that you may do without. Tbelrirst kind Is honorable, the Hecond blasting, jf you have money enough of your own to buy a plain yet re p pec table coat and you borrow money for a dan ay's outfit you sre one revolution of the wheel on the down grad. To borrow for the necessities may be well: to borrow for the luxuries tips over your proeet the wrong way. The bible says the borrower is servant to the the lender. It la a bad sign when you go down some other street to avoid meeting some man to whom you owe money. If young in- n knew th. despot I in of being In debt more of them would keep out of it. What did it do for fxrni Haeon.witha mind towering above the eenturies? Induced him to take brines and convict himself 'M'foreall the" ages as a criminal, What did it do for Walter Srotl? broke his heart at Abbottifordand kept him writing till his hand gave out In piralyrds to keep the sheriff nwavfrom his picture and .statuary, better, if in its highest sens', he had observed the two words he had chis eled over his kitt beii fireplace at Ahbottaford: "Waate n d, want not." What did it do for Kobeit Burns? atom him to hard drinking and to beg ging forseveu pounds ami four shillings to pay for a volunteer's uniform. W'bat did it do for LORB BYRON. and his mother he died in a fit from rage at readl.ig tht-"flphtNtrer,a bills. William Iitt. able "to manage the nnaueca of England, could not manage hi - own and was in constant mortification, and niter his death parliament voted $200,000 to pay his debts, although his annual salary had been at least tsu.oou. The trouble is that men donotuu dcrstand the ethics of debt, uud that if you borrow money or make purchases with no prospect of meeting your obligations you steal just that amount. If I buy sugars, dTecs and meats at a corner grot-cry with no tOM-ibillly of compensation, I am more dUhouost tlian if 1 went In and, while the grocer was looking the other way, I filled ray pockets with the grocerlt-s and ran off with a ham in one case I take lew time In waiting on me and the time of hit messenger in taking the articles to my house. In the other case I take none of his time iu the purchase and I carry the thing home myself, vt saving him ih trouble. In other wonls, the sueaL-t hief t not so tad as the contractor of debit which he know he cannot pay. Yetltlia well-known faet in our eiticH that there, are families who move every' spring so as to get into a new neighborhood of groceries, meat shops and apothecaries. They owe everything within a quar ter of a mVc around where they now live, and they will go next spring clear over to another part of the city, so as to And a ucw lot of victims. For the next three mouths after you (the honest family) have moved luto your new house, there will be a kno"k every day by some, disappointed baker, or b i-.ier r - - dealer, or paper-carrier, to knowwhenj i t.. r bus goue. You don't ijnow It was so arr-nge t that you should not know, or hai BjBsasj wniie, your oniinguisnea preueccs be 'un hl ravatres In smother iieitrltrhood.

I counsel such people, if they have any re spect for their couvenicuce to mow a sufficient dis tance off. I. for Instauea, you live in south Brook lyn, move toiCaslera DUtiiet. or (.ireenpoiut. Or if Iou live in these central parts of Brooklyn move to oisoy City or New York. It in nuch a pity that you should have not only the trouble of consuming the articles bdt the additional trouble of being dunned. If you recognise this picture as your own photo graph, though you may be soated in church, really the place for you is the penitentiary- No wonder that o man of our mercnauta fail. They are pwindlrdlnto bankruptcy by these Aldi V"DKR1N0 AKAB.S, these nomads of city life. They cheat the grocer choseUs one green applos that make, them sick, anfl th doctor who attend them in th -lr ditrcs. and the undertaker who fits them for departure from the nelghlwrnood where they owed everybody woenthey paid the debt of nature, the only debt they aver do pay. Amid such a depraved system of morals our vonng mou are starting out. and I en warning, there are a thousand things you cannot - affard uu a , but be patient, indtutrlous nud houct and you can afford th.m after awhile. Certain lines of good couduet Lead to cer tain nucco4. reat lawn control thofl.t thlng which seem haphaXird.

Herscbel made his living by playing a violin at partJ-a, but In the Intcrstlci-s of the playing he went out to look ut the midnight heavens, the field on which he made his immortal eonouests. Quenlin Mat, as a hard-working blacksmith, sought tbe hand of a painter's daugh ter, and wa refused. But, not -!i-ueariened, he re solved to excel as a painter, and succeeded, and so won tbe hand of art and the hand of the painter's daughter.

But all this mechanism of the body iH squalid us compared with your more wonderful soul. This makes me the more solid loti?. My anxiety is not because pu have no little to do with, but bceau-e you hare so much to risk and loose. There Is no clast of puople that so excite my sympathy a! young men In great cities, not quite enough salary to live on, and all the temptations that come from the 'deficit.

When I said protect yourselves, I proponed for you noth ing so weak a mere human resolution, which may dbwrirc in toe foam cf the wine-cup, or be blown out in the first gust of temptation .

L -t Sabbath at the close of my sermon f saw the gold watch of the world-renowned aud much-lamented violinist, Ole Bull. lie died but Mimnier in hi- inland horue off the coast of Norway.. He wound up his watch day by day during his Illness, saying to his comiuilon: "I want to wind it as long as I can. ami then you wind it and keep it go lug till it gets to my friend, Dr. Doiemus, in New York. And then he lunat keep it wound up till his life Is done, and the watch taases to his young sou, my especial favorite.

MoMTCoMinv, November 13, ImtO. To the ileneral Assembly of Alabama: GgNTLBMEN I herewith baud you a brief corre- sioulcnee between Senator Morgan und myself which explains itself. I have alao conferred with Hons. Toomaa II. Herndon, If. A. Uerocrt, C. M. Shelley, Thomas Williams, W. II. Forney and Joseph Wheeler, who unanimously conenr in the opinion that the August election should 1 ehangitl back to November. I could offer other weighty reason in addition to those set forth in the above notu, bat all of these will readily occur to any ob serving and reflecting lsdnd". In order that these suggestions may certainly reach you, I ask thoir publication In tbe .tdterftscr. A bill to accomplish the desired obiect Is In charge of Hon. C C Lang don, of Mobile. WM. C. Data- MoNTooxgRvTBf., N'ovcmlicr 10, 1880. General Johu T. Morgan, United States Senator, etc. : My DiAR Sip. Under our Suite constitution our elections of State and county olliccrs arc held on the first Monday In August, every two years or bicnnlnllv. and the election of elector.- of President and Vice-President of the I'nited States and repre sentative in congress, is held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday In November, and i Axea by congress and cannot be changed by State legis lation. Tbe separation of our State electtoii from that of Presidential electors and congressmen was made by the frnmers of oar State constitution to avoid the menace of Federal bayonets at the ballot-boxes. But it Is provided In the constitution that tbe time of hob ling the State election may be changed by a majority vote of the general assembly. It is nothing more than a mere statute. Most happily for the whole country, troops at the pollsare no longer tolerated. This is. 1 trust, apart of the past history of the country, never again to be repeated. One cam paign and tbe excitement incident thereto is enough for auy people in any one year. An elec tion in August and another tn November of the same year Is too heavy a drauehl upon the time aud attention of our people, united State- depu-ly-marshals can only he appointed la' cities of JU.OUO Inhabitants or upwards. I'nited States su pervisors can be legally appointed only from the qualified voters of the beat, precinct or ward In which they are bi act. These produce no terrors to honest voters now. Anil not right? What ia your opinion" You have engaged In both cam paigns tlii year in different parts of the State and have had ample opisirtunity of observing. It It not a fact that the people In the November election this year and in is7s were so apathetic as to endangar the success of the Demo cratic (party? If such waa the fact there must have been some cause for it. Tbe people arc not wauling iu patriotism. I am of the opiuiuu that it resulted chletlv from the fact that the No vember election come on so early after the excite ment of tbe August election that the people take but little interest. Such freuuent election! are a source of annoyance and if continued will result in great evil, we should therefore have but one election In any one year; hence it would be wise, expedient aud economical lor the present general usseiublv to change the time of holding our State election from August back pj November, Let that be done and provide forscrtarate inspectors tickets, poll Hats and huTlot-boxei, if deemed necessary. No I'nited States supervisor would have any right to interfere with the insisjclurs of the State election In tbe performance or non-performance of Iheir duties in conducting the State electiou. Will you give your opinion in such form that it maybe placed In the hands of each one of otir legislators, as suggestions for their eouataeraliouv That some change will and ought to be made In our election Ian s. at the present session. Is obvious. Let tbem consider well and act wisely. Yonr olK-dlent ser vant, WM. V. OATKS. MuNTGOimv, ALA., NoTrmbcr 10. 1880. Hon. W.

The Morement that tTiw Ori-innted in York Last Week by Influential Capitalist, Looking; to a Concen tration of the Capital aud En ergr of this Country For the Derelopnient of Kailro i Con struction and Trade In and with Mex ico Sensible, Liberal and Poiuted Speech by General (J rant Opening for the South. On Friday morning wo published a brief statement, received by telegraph, of a dinner -given at Delruonico's to General t irant by Henor Romero, of Mexico, late minister to this country. From the New York Tribune we copy thia morning a full report of the speech made by General Grant, believing that any development of the trade of this country witli Mexico must eventually la? more profitable to the south than any other section of the Union. The gentlemen in vited to meet General Grant were principally those interested in railways. Among them were General Palmer, Mr. Coolidge, of Bos ton, Jay Gonid, C. P. Haotingten, Samuel Sloan, Mr. Woerishoffer, Charles Crocker, of San Francisco, and Kusaell Sage. As soon as tbe dinner waa over the host made n speech. General Grant responded, giving the result of his travels and observations in Mexico. At Hie close of the meeting a com mittee waa appointed to ascertain and report if there is a basis upon which all the per sons interested in Mexican railroads may work in concert. The committee is com posed of General Grant, chairman, Mr. Rom ero, General G. M. Dodge, Jay Gould, C. C Woerishoffer, General W. J. Palmer, Edward D. Adams, Thomas Nickerson, F. J. Cool idge, J. ilenry Work, C. H. Honore, Russell Sage and others. General Urant's Speech. I lrtve not arranged anything that I am olng to say In order, and It may be that as I go ou. some questions will suggest themselves to your minds. It they do, and if you will ask inc. I will answer them u, the be-t of my ability, or confess that I know nothing in the shape of an answ er. I went to Mexico last winter for two objects. One was that I bad been there a good many years ago. in the war which this country- unfortunately had with that notion, and I have always felt an interest iu the country from that day to this. And then I went there with the further object nf seeing, if I could, how posalblyhre might establish relations of friendship and commerce between the two nations. 1 wus led to that from facts which I became aware of in reference to this country. I found that we were large consumers of tropical products Rnd that the amount was Increasing in a double ratio first by an increase in our population, and then again by an iucreaae In the wealth of our inhabitants. All those products sugar TOffee and tobacco being the leading articles we derive from countries that trade but very little with us, countries that collect their revenues to a large de gree by levying duties on their exports, which we have to iy. and then forcing us to ship our pro ducts to a Kuropcan market to cet the sterling in exchange with which to pay these bills. If I re member correctly four years ago I could huve told you accurately but if my memory serves ase right, are are paying out annually X, 000,000 in current exchange, nearly all of it in sterling ex change for such products. 1 believe, and was con vinced after toy visit to Mexico, that that countrv was capable of producing all that we have to im port now of this character and wdth a large surplus to provide for our increase! consumption. It is a neighboring republic, with institutions like our own, and her wants, which must be sirpplied from abroad, uro just such as we eould supply If Mex ico were develoncd. so as to have an tneenltv.. to cultivate her soil, she would want agricultural im- tuemcnis unu many sucn articles. As the people IV o-i came wealthy they would want carriae-es and wagons, all sorts of machinery, all of tho rolling stock for railroads iron would probablv come from Kugland, because they could get it from there cheaper harness, boots and shoes, clothing, and a thousand and one other articles we could furnish, so that wc could pay largely for what we received in tbe produce of our manufactories, thereby add ing to tbe commerce of our countrv and benefit ting the two republics alike. HOW THE PEOPLE KEEL. While I was there I was met with this subject all the time. I found the people there very much In terested iu the development of their own resources. I was told that there was a good deal of hostilitv on the purt of some people to a connection with tbe I'nited States, they having in their recollection the result of the unfortunate incidents many years ago. when our Americans settled up Texas part of Mexico at that time that afterward led to a seces sion of that State from the Mexican republic, and finally a war with the L'nited States, which result ed in the loss of yet more territory. There has been tn this nation a feeling thut the Mexic an people were not a class to develop their countrv. ana that they have gone through a long series of years here without making many advances. The assertion Is made without any jiartieu iar examination of the subject. From my observation, and looking at the history of the country. I think that they have done remarkably well. 1 think that Mexico is entitled to a great deal of credit for the position which she now occupies among the civil izcw nations oi tne eann wnen trials, her difficulties trials and earth when you consider her I difficulties which it was imiiossible for her to avoid. ITp to 1810 Mexico was a province of old Spain. She was gov erned a great deal aa Stiain governs her provinces now for the purpose of getting from them all tbey could possibly collect, and keeping their subjects entirely ignorant of how to legislate and bow to govern, simply making them prnducers. hewers of wood and drawers of water. Mexico, up to 1S10. was governed entirely. from old Spain. She was prohibited from producing anything fnun her soil which Spain could produce und ship to her, and all of those products had to pay a large duty when they went into Mexico. They prevented tbe Mexi can people from having auy part in their govern ment, sending their own sons there to rule and to enrich themselves by large salaries and public plunder. I do not think I am overstating it. am I, Mr. Romero? Senor Romero No, not, at all. WHY TOE COUNTRY REVOLTED. It at last became so unbearable that In lsio Mex ico revolted, and the war continued until ls.'t "before she gained her final freedom. Then she was a people without legislative experience, with out cxi-cnenee in governing but free, and with a country to rule and make laws for. The firt ihing t Lev did was to adopt a constitution something like nun-, establishing a United .States, when there was but one State. They had to go to work and curve up the territory and make States so as to con form to the constitution. And having uo people to make lawn for them, they adopted the laws which were in force the lawti of Old Spain. They prohib ited the cultivation of certain articles, and so did the lawn of Old Spain. They prohibited the culti vation of tobacco to one or two K-etions, where it was farmed out, and where the government became the purchasers of the crop after it was zaised, the manufacturers of the to bacco aud the Mil omen of it. That per quisite waV transferred U the government of Mexico instead of tbat of Old Spain. That was all the difference, or the reform, that was worked. The priests were the most eduated men in the country, and had a nearer experience in gov erning than any other class of tbe iepVe, and as any sect or anv party or any kind of people would do under a' like circumstance, they availed them selves of the advantages which they had. and took entire control of the government, political as well as spiritual, and so managed as to absorb all the revenues of the State and pfetty much all tbe Val uable proia-rfy of the country into their own hands. And wnen that was becoming intolerable, so that the people were about ready lo rise up in their might to overthrow the church party not the religion, but the claims of the clergy to the right of governing our war wth Mexico set in, which threw them back for a long period of time. Finally, after gettiug over that ami the ef fects of it, in lfvW, they made war upon the 'church to free themselves from their aomina f'.onin civil matters. That war was going on and had almost reached a successful cluse when our rebellion set in. Then there was an In tervention on the part of European pow ersparticularly France which gave tnem another war . that continued as hmg as ours did and a little after, so that really all the time that Mexico natt naa tor advancement m republican institutions and republican government to count really w ell Is wince 1WS7. They have thirteen yeurs really of growtn, und considering that they have been Impoverished by wars, foreign and domestic, I think they have done remarkably well, and i am perfectly satisfied that with the building of rail roads and telegTaphs there need be no more appre hension for the safety of capital invested iu Mex ico than lu our own country. RESULT OF BUILDING RAILROADS. The building of railroads will give employment to labor and will give them rapid transit from one part of the country to another; the telegraph will give them Instantaneous information of what is going on iu all parts of the country, and anything like an uprising can be suppressed at once sup pressed in the bud. I Uak for a bright and pros perous aud rapid future for Mexico, and it must result in a very large commerce with some part of the world. If we take advantage ofthetime.it will accrue to the benefit of the United States more than to that of any other country except Mexico, and Mexico wijl be necessarily the moat 1 netitcd of "ant other country. At -present, owlug to the lack of railroads, they have very little ;o cnort that will Var tranbrtafion, except their bullion. Their exports now, as I learned while 1 was there, amount tu about 000, 000 a year. Of that sum unite or near 93o,uou,tiQ0 a year is in bullion, and only about 000,UQ0 of all her exports are from the product of per "oli Kven that is raised some where near the eoast, when they cay easily get tmii-tortation. As 1 have said. I have no doubt that with the building of railroads they will b able to export tCOO.OOO.iJOO, not a dollar of w hich will he bullion. DEVELOPIN-. THE O H'NTRY. N -w. as to the people. Mexico has a population of about 9,000, 000. as 1 whs informed while I was there, of which probably 7,W0.00O are of the old Aztecs. They ere a people who are wedded to their homes. They do not like to leave with tbeir families their places of birth ahd the hot.ie of heir ftneeeton. They probably occupy the same localities Uiat their ancestors did a thousand years ago. But they are peaceable, ouietf innocent, inoffensive, very religious and virtuous people, and they are w illing to work, and very industrious when they can see the w ages com ing iu Saturday night They are a good class of labor for developing the country around near where they live, and the men ure willing to ko a distance of twenty or thirty or iorty leagues from their homes to work, leaving their fatuities back. With this small export, the land having no special value, the revenues of the country are very limited Indeed, about SlS.000,000 being the maximum re ceipts of the government foroue year at least that was the maximum when 1 was there; but Mr Ro mero inform- ine that it hat now inereaistd to lil.- Cjo.ooo. ft I. ilin.ilnej I .Vmsten at it $is,ooo.ioo was about the extent of the revenues, of the nation, w itb a very h-eavy rate of taxation and with every ctlort on the part of the government to get all the reence, it could. -With th'4 Ite OWJ government, including the army there is no navy to speak of has to be maintained. Hence it Is impossible for Mexico, no matter how willing she may be. to pav LUarthtna in her present state toward tin- buiUUiiRof znirroads. and It has luukl'it 1 looked to mc as inouer. reopie tne as tliotiel'.

We used to build some then Very suddenly, and ton them up, and we naked for no subsidies and war paid nobody tor their w. :k. But then I should think, if 1 were going lo build a railroad myself 1 would rather own the ruad and regulate It after It was built than to re ceive a subside and then have the per son or nation subsidising ms control me au4 tell mc how to run It. talnfe, however, thai la a mallei a raua.ad. msti can tell much better than 1 can Persons who expect to build railroads lu Melro and avail themselves of thesubaidies wfcMfc Hie government promises them, arc dtsmie.l to dia appointtnent, or elae they have got to build the roads very slowly. Sir. Houston How u It as pjpiocurlug labor: etauersl (.rautAheut that! wtll say that these eevvnjnllllon ot Sxtoas furnish as food labor as van bs to uud as ludnstrlsus and wiiung workuieu a ran !c found anywhere in the world and the men will go a considerable distance from their homes and -tayatwork, without moving their fam llies from their homes however. But then, aa they arc scattered all over the country, as you advanced you tuuld gel a ucw.. act of workmen. You could not cnrmncni-o at the northern border of Mexico with a set of workmen and keep them until you got all through Mexico, but you could get new sets in the villajres as you went alone. Labor is now very cheap. It will of course enhance in value, and very rapidly as tho country develoja. I visited, while I was there, soineot the mines, and the labor is all performed there by na tives. A Mexican mining camp Is a very much plcasanter sipht than one of our mining tamps. There is an entire absence of the drinking saloons and tin. gam bliug-liousc and theaters aud the ab sence of bowie-knives and revolvers is verv notice able. Mr. Houston What would be the cost of labor as compared with here'.' (ieneral iram As it is now, labor would varv from thirty to fifty cents adriy in silver. But It will en hance. Then, when you come to the lalatr In the terra cat icafas that Is. in the low land where there Is the yv-llow -fever, labor would be scarce and it would not do half the work itdoes on the tshlnlsndl above. Bad you would have to pay a dollar a day. It would not average over fifty cents a day prob ably not a much us that. Mr. Dillon It would be more desirable for capi talists here who might be interested In the con tlUttJMi oi roads in Mexico to receive liberal char ters and legislation and build without any expec tation of subsidies? General Grant I say that Is a matter which rail road men have to la1 the judges. But if they want Pi build the railroad radidly, thev would have to furnish the money to build It at first, and trust to the development of the country enabling it to pay tlie subsidies. Thev cannot expect to build the road with the subsidies. In getting your Pacific road built, you built twenty miles of road and turned that right In, and that could tie used In the construction of another twenty miles. You had to furnish the capital only for twenty miles of roud. If I were going to build a road there I should say get a right of way without charge, exemption from taxation and the introduction of all material iu the construction of the road free from duty for a certain number of years, have the entire control of fixing tarlha, etc., after it was built, and let the government come iu only when the road paid more than 10 per cent, over cost, and say how the surplus of 10 percent should he divided 'between the gov ernment of Mexico and the owners of tbe road. THE TEACHERS' INSTITUTE For the Tenth Congressional Diatriet Held at Soinervllle Last Wee a. -The Work Dane. The Only Iter. ret In Connection With It was the Absence of so Jinny Teachers Colonel Trooadnle Indorsed. The State naperintemk-nt'ti inRtitute and convention of teachers for the tenth congressional district convened as per programme at Sonierville, 1'iyette county, Wednesday, the tenth instant, uud utfjourned sow? die on the following Friday. The absence of many of our best teachers, whose presence would have enhanced the interest of the oucasion, waa due, perhaps, to circumstances they could not control, aud, we i rust, wus not the re sult ot a luck of professional interest or zeal. The teachers in attendance, it is but lust to say, from the Interest manifested in the subjects presented und discussed, seemed to discern the true dignity of their profession and the mutual relations they sustain to parents, to children and to each other as co-laborers iu a cause the importance of which, when fully realized, will enable the profession to take its position where itjnstly belongs. To their credit, be it said, that nothing but the purest and highest motives, the ttprUducorp, tho desire and determination to labor for the advancement of the great cause of education, could have induced these teachers, and leaders in the educational field, to leave their homes in different and distant parts of the State ami unite their efforts in a manner le lilting a body of earnest men and women seeking to help one another in a most important work. This U due to the leadership and direction of our efficient 8tftte superintendent, whose devotion to the cause he so ably represents has won for him the universal commendation of educators and scholars throughout the State. The sessions of the Institute were harmonious throughout, and highly interesting and instructive, developing, as they did, the most practical views ami conclusions formed from observation and ex perience of mme of our best teachers and school oiti. -. While there were no taditHM or lengthy discussions, und no attempts made at oratory, the obieet was rather to suggest the most pnictical need- of the schttol, and the best methitd. of sup plying them : to excotinge views, and awaken nev intercat( by endeavoring tu elevate public senti ment iu behalf of the public school system. In this res.iect we can hurdly believe the institute will f : ii to accomplish much gio 1, as it has always done; and the only regret was that there was not a more general attcadarioe of the teachers and school di rectors of the district. iu response to the superintendent's circular, the citizens of Somerville uot only lent encouragement by attending all the sessions Of the instftnte, but by actual -.participation in almost every part of the programme. They are zealous and euterprisim; in the cause of education; as an evidence of which, their schools aud institutions of learning speak for themselves. A people only of such literary tastes and attainments, of such general intelligence ami reilnenieut, actuated by kindred feelings of Inter est and enthusiasm in the obiect for which we had convened, couldjhave extended such a cordial w el (umc as tlid they to all those who were so fortunate as to be their guests. Che local ituumittees deserve especial notice. The conunitU-c uf reception and eutertainment, consisting of Rev W. D. F. Haffc.nl. Messrs. W. S. Cochran. Frunk Tiimble. H. I. H-b-.n. Stephen Carnes and Joseph IU liortah, discharged their duty iu such a highly satisfactory manner that they challenged the admiration of all the visitors to the Institute at Somerville. So much were we made to appreciate und enjoy their generous kind ness and hospitality that we could have prolonged our visit, and it was not without feelings of regret that w e took our leave of them. The committee on music, consisting of J. B. Ful ler, Mrs. Dr. Mcl.ellan, Mrs. Dr. Robertson, Miss Hallie Peebles aud Miss Amelia Pulliam, assisted by the sw eet voices of many of Somerville's favor ite singers, added exquisite delight to the occasion. Everybody seemed well pleased, and manifested an Increased interest in the teachers and their work. At the close of the institute, the committee on re solutions repotted the following, which were unani mously adopted: Whereas, The great re-i-onsibility resting upon us. representatives and leaders in the educational field, demands our united action and earnest efforts iu the promotion of the groat cause of public in struction ; and, WBaOntAB. Experience and observation in our resiiectiee fields of labor from time to time .sug gest certain needed amendments to the school law ; nnd, Whereas, The interests of the public schools can be materially und successfully advanced only by wise legislation; therefore, Rrsotrtd, That we earnestly request the next legislature, through our worthy State superinten dent, to make some needed provision for the main tenance of normal schools in the interest of our as piring young teachers, believing that tbe highest Interests of our public schools will thereby be sub served. . ' Retolretl, Chat the State superintendent be re quested to considet the feasibility of any proposed amendments to the school law, and, if approved, ask the next general assembly of Tennessee tor the needed legislation. Rrtolvefl, That we express our appreciation of the efficient servics of Hon. Leon Trousdale, superin tendent of public instruction; that in him we find tin earnest advocate, a warm supporter and a true friend of education, who will employ every avail able means to foster and further the great cause we are endeavoring to advance ; and that we teu der him our cordial thanks for the able and gen tlemanly manner in which he has presided over the meetings of the institute. Jirtivtd, That we tender a vote of thanks to the officers of the railroads for reduced nites, to the proprietors of the hotels, and to the good jeople of Sonierville for the kind reception and hospitality they have extended to Us during our stay with them. ssMlsed, That we express our high appreciation of, and lender our sincere thanks to the young ladies of Somerville for the excellent music they have given tis, and which bus proven tbe most pleasing and highly entertaining feature of the programme. Also to Prof. W. H. Thorp for the use of the institute. Krwlvrd, That the secretary tto requested to fur nish a eopv of these resolutions to the Somerville papers and to the Memphis A weal for publication.

A most atrocious assault upon a child of seven years was brought to light to-day before a north side justice, by the ex amination of John M. Tester, a cigar-maker, twenty one yean, of age, who tor -some time past has been a boarder in the famllv of Thomas T. Fletcher, residing at No. 22 Larribee street. The victim of the outrage Is their only daughter. Elmi ra. On Saturday night Mr. and Mrs. FTetchoj went to the theater, leaving the little girl In charge of Texter. The brute took advantage of his opportu nity, promising her a new pocketbook if she would keep still. The result of his conduct was that the child became afflicted with disease. This fact was discovered yesterday, when, .on being closelv questioned by her mother, the child told the -story of the outrage. A warrant was at once taken out for his arrest, w hich took place late in the evening. After a prolonged and thorough examination this morning, the court bound him over to await the action of the grand jury. Bail was axed at foUOO. Boy Burned by an Electric Flame. 8aK Antonio, Texas. November 12. Yesterday evening Fred Badcr, eleven years old. son of Constable Bader, went home from school and fouud his parent- gone. He went to the cup board to slice off a piece of bread, buttered it, then went in front of the house, sat down on a gate-post andrbjegan eating. In a few seconds he was envel oped In a flame, which passed around the house to an irrigation ditch and was lost. Freddie's sister, near by. raw the flame and describes it aa a ball of Are. Freddie's hat was burned, alao his shirt-bosom, and hia eye-brows singed off, and tho hair w here not protected by his hat. To-day he is unable to see. and can scarcely hear. His fare ia swollen and ridged as if by a abarp instrument. The boy Is in great pain, and may lose both sight and hear ing. There was no one near him except his little nine year-old sister at the time. The burning is said by physicians to have been produced by an electric Are. It is the occasion of universal wonder and comment here, being an unusual case. Two Brothers Killed In a Saloon. St. Louis, November 15. Last night Jos. P. Flannlgan, keeper of a saloon at 2G01 Bmadwav, shot and killed one man and mortally wounded another a few- minutes before midnight. It ap pears that four railroad men went into Flanniganlr saloon about half-post 11 o'clock and ordered drinks, which were aUd tor. Shortly afterward more drinks were taken and. the party started to leave the saloon without settling for them. Flan nigan asked for his pay and a row ensued, in which Flannigan drew a revolver, shot Tobias Laurhlin dead and sent a laall through the lungs of his brother, Daniel Laughlin. The dead body of To bias was taken to the morgue and his brother sent to his boardinghonsc, 1700 Broadway. Tobias Laughlin was an engineer on the Wabash railroad, and has a wife and two children somewhere in Canada. later Daniel Laughlin, who was wouudeil in the liar-room last night at the time his brother was killed, died this morning. Statements as to the origin of the difficulty are vers' conflicting, and tbe facta in the rase wtll probably not be know 11 before to-morrow, when an inquest will be held. The Murderer of alia lilld-W ir. . New Yobk, November 13. A brief dis patch was sent out yesterday, announcing the shooting, by William Urovcr, of lied Bank, New Jersey, of hia wife, a girl aged thirteen. The fol lowing are full particulars: Gniver, who is fifty years old, six months ago married Jcinia Chambers, aged thirteen. Tbey lived unhappily together until hut Saturday, w'hen Grover's abuse caused her to leave him. On Thursday night she returned to the house for the purtiose of getting some cloth ing. G rovej refused to let her have the clothing. She Insisted upon taking it, whereupon Grover shot her In the head. She is reported In a dying condition to-day. Grover has lost two wives, w ho were sisters. Jemla's mother is said to have favored the child's marriage to Grover, who had been Jemia's father's comrade in the war. The mother, a widow, had remarried, and waa Mrs. Ammack. Grover is respectably connected at Red Bank. He Is a son of James Grover. formerlya member of the legislature from Monmouth. It is thought he is not of sound mind. He was a sergeant in the Fourth New Jetsey volunteers. When he married Jemla he had a little home at Cranberry Brook aud $1200 back pension money. The clergyman who performed the remarkable marriage (a child under fourteen cannot be lawfully married! was Rev. Ja bez Marshall, of the Baptist church, Eatontown. Jcmia was at the head of the stairs when Grover shot her just below the left eye. She reeled and fell headlong to the bottom of the stairs. Grover tired again, tbe ball crashing through the back of the skull, making a fatal wound, Grover, after his arrest, said: "1 did it in fun; it's all right." Gro ver was discharged from the army after the battie of the Peninsula for physical disability, by reason of sickness, aud his mind was affected, 'nia first two wives were supported by his father. If Jemia had lived she would have been thirteen next week. A Murderous I narrate. Syracuse, N. Y., November 12. A lerri ble deed was committed In the eastern suburbs of the ctty last night. Mr. 1 nomas u cflen, a well-to-do produce dealer, uud his wife, weVe hprribly beaten on the head by burglars with a carpenter's hammer. Mr. Q'Br(en's skull, at' the top of the head and slightly to i,he right, in a direet line with the ear. was crashed and splintered and the scalp was badly otmiUMed. The lame just over the right eye of Mrs. O'Brien was broken and split in the s line manner. The deed. It proved, was commit ted by two young men named Ben Halm, aged twentv-threc, and Alexander Barlo, aged nineteen. The intention of the two was to rob Mr. O'Brien. After securing twelve dollars in silver the two rob bers hHrrled to the ceuter of the city, and after drinking aud playing billiards, boarded a train at 4 o'clock to go to Buffalo. They were arrested just as the train was leavingthe depot, Ota suspicion. Barlo, thinking the police had fastened the crime on them, at once confessed. This was a complete surprise to the officers. The two were examined this forenoon . and pleading guilty, their case w as turned over to tbegrandjury. Both are rough characters. Iabn's home is in Syracuse, and Barln'e in btewart, Ne braska. Hahu ollen staid'Wlth the O'Brien family, and he repaid their kindness by robbing and nearlv murdering them. Mr. O'Brien Is forty-two years old and his wife ia forty-three. Jt does not seem possible that Mrs. 11'Brieii can survive, although tier husband may.
