I be. lieved io a good many fallacies: among them, politics, Queen Elizabeth, and?echool-teach ing. You see, I had the sort of feeling common to very young teachers, that the cp >cial reason tor my being borti at all was that I sho.ikl dic? tinguieh myself by drilling knowledge into H>ecimens of humanity, who were more or lew perfect in the art of manufacturing choice spit- I balls, horribly spelled lova-lettera, and pict ires of people with impossible faces, potato bo-1 es, ana leg.- like a crocked hairpin with a pot-hook at the md. Strange to sav, that feeling Isn't so strong with me now, and J manage to get through the night* without lying awake and think ng how I could possibly join the ranks ag?iu; hut the feeling ?.f meek resignation grows especially -trong when I read the gush.ng epistle* in wht-ti tond mothers protet-t against the haldt of mak ing their darlings st i-iy their lessons at home At surh times 1 IVei like becoming a devout Catholic at once, just for the satisfa tlon ot crossing myself a dozen times or so to keep ms &?ay from tbe evil. THK TRlBCLATlOIfS OF THJ TEACHERS. I)o these ttfcder parents ever consider, my dear Star, that the teachers of our public schools have no voice whatever in the regula lion of studies, books, Ac ; but are m?re ma chines in the hands of the trustee* ? Let anr one take a school rei*>rt, and he or she will there Bml that the branches to be studied, the ground to be gone over in each, and the requirements geneiall.v for each year are mapped out for each grade with minute precision. If the school comes up to the mark well and good; if not, then woe to the teacher! Instead ot praise, she'll receive snubs of the most pronounced type, and will, besides, find herself minus em ployment; i.e., it she escapes being burnt in tffgy at once, tot a rebellions subject. There is a muddle of that kind now in the Wallach school. One of the teachers, who, for sixteen years has faithfully fillsd her post, had, during the past year, an unusually difficult set of boys to deal with. Punishment* were not permitted, except a detention for half an boar after school hours, and circumstances were therefore decidedly in favor of a pool show at examination; a result not dreaded without re% l son by the teacher. Well, her fears were veri t fled; the scholars did not, as heretofore, fullv reach the required standard, and the conse quence was that her loving friends on the board had a beautiful opportunity to humiliate hor by reducing her rank, besides bidding out the prospect of entire dismissal, for further en couragement. Yes, If twenty pupils were tbe number allotted to each teacher, then one might reasonably ex pect that the could explain every mooted p mr to the satisfaction of each individual piece of animated inquiry; but with sixty or seventy or the species on her hands, how" in reason can such a course be possible? The truth is that many parent* are perfectly resigned to delegate : all the care and trouble to a teacher, while at j the same time they jealous'y refrain from a id ii>g the spice of authority to the burden which might make the transfer a success. And to give the uninitiated a faint glimpse of ' the sort ot material our teachers have to work i oj'on, and show what lovely specimens of tine ) feeling and loving hindness some of these "mo thers" tern loose upon the community, ( will , ust relate a little incident which occurred a tew days ago: While engaged in a little private teaching ot my own, the pitiful yelping ot a dog right in front of my house attracted my at tention. I investigated the matter and found that a crowd of boys had played "dog catcher" with a little dog. They had chased, beaten and stoned him, had thrown him into the water, and then repeated their innocent amusements until tbe foolish animal fell over and thus ended iheir sport. Wei'., all frigns indicated that he "even wished that be were dead," if dogs ever do wish that: and coming to the conclusion that the only mercy which could be shown him was to Lave him shot, I gently entourag <1 a couple of boys to have it done at once. Then, if any one will take the trouble of keeping eyes and ear." open ncaro'irscbool,bc can find hundreds of these 'Mature rulers'' en gaged ?n drawn battles, tn which stones a*id cuises of the hardest kinds are exchanged with great spirit and uul>oum1ed liberality; an 1 one afternoon 1 saw a half brick, sent by one of these f. r.'s as striking argument, scrape ac quaintance with a colored woman who turned the corner, In sueh a touching manner that she grew ash grey in the face, and turned to m with: "Fo de Lawd. Mis*, dese boys Is de deb bils own. Where Civil Rights now * I wondah!" Ot course these unsophisticated com plainer devoutly believe that a teacher can convert a room full of these playful cherubs into studious, obedient children by 'mere force of will, even ir these s.4me parent* find themselves unequal t<< the task of ertecting that desirable result with the few they call their own, even when sup I<orted by full and unlimited authority; but some of as do know that the mere atmosphere of a schoolroom is not particularly noted for it. beneficial ertects upon tlie bump governing the study department; and as the putnD, by means of which knowledge is to be forced into the br&ius of children,ha- not yet been patented they must study, and study hard, in order to learn; and if they do not make use of thair tim ? during ibe day to do so, then th y mast mako up lor the loss m the evening, or?the trustees must reduce the number of branches to be strdied. &oi cover, one mav safely assert that a hun dred children will die of "eating green applns befoie ono will be made an ange' through ovar exeitirn in the study line; and usually it i? the naient* of children, in the formation or whose heads the front consists of a basement onlv. while the back sports three stories and a Fren ih roof, who have the greatest fear of the effect of mental exercise upon their darlings. But there, I'm afraid this is not "svo'etivtt long drawn out;" and I really beg pardon for saying so much; yet, when people do their be? to make chUdten believe that their teachers ought to do all the work, and that ronseqtenth the little people have nothing to do but am:ne themselves m order to become tine scholar* then I think that some one ought to paint the otheT side of the picture, even if it is only Miss Baoww.

New York and Brooklyn press and to sallv forth to make a i.utton-holdinp raid on the Tom. l?ick and Harrys of Brooklyi Heights, in order to learn their views on the Plvmouth moral mud-throwing. A reporter of the Brooklyn (N. Y.) Eigle called on Mr. Tracv. one of Mr. BeecherV counsel, on Satnrdav, with the special object to obtain an explanation of that portion ot Mr Mouiton'8 sUt?ment in which he charge* Mr B?echer with adultery with a woman other t'i an Mrs. n ilton. Mr. Tracv said the U3y reteri><l to 1 v Mr. Monlton is Mrs. Edna Dean Proctor and'the publication of her letter by Moaltan i> ore of the m??st atrocious and damning out rs.gt r that he had ever known to be perpetrated The l idy referred to had a l?n?iness ditlictlrv with Mr. Beet her fourteen year? sgo. and out of that d flictilty there was a very shaip auo artgrv corre.-pondence on ber j'irt wifti Mr Beecher. She sx-oke harshly and severely ol kim to others?to her friends; but Mr. Beech cr> letter-showed that she had mi?appreheuil??o bis action, ard while she accepted hi- explana tiot s and resumed triendly relations witti h:m she never quite felt that she hat not bsec wronged in that matter. Thia note, wuicb b now published. relates to that matter and U> that onlv; and was a simple statement that she n tertaihtd fourteen years afterward, when the note was witten. r-o harj-li or unkind feeling toward Mr. Beecher, growing out of that trans action. The note itself c'.eirly shows that it could have no reference to such a transactioa a? it is now brought forward for and us*d by Mr. Moulton Mt. Beecher turned this lady's private letters with others, over to Moulton for safe-keeping and now Moulton attempts to wrest it from lb true meaning and to make it evidence to prov? a transaction which never existed, and which never had any foundation in tact. No irapra per relations ever existed between this lady am Mr. Beecher, and they were never on even es Kciallv intimate terms. The frien ls of this iv, some days ago, hearing of the use Mr Moulton was av*>outto make of this letter, cause* to be madetohim a full explanation of its mean ing; and Mr. Beeclier's correspondence, which occurred 14 years ago. relating to this matter and tullv explaining it. was shown to Mr. Moul ton's intimate and confidential frlond, and the Injustice and outrage of snch a u?e as Is no* made of that note was clearly jointed oat t<. him. That this information was conveyed to Moulton, and that he fully understood it, hu own statement clearly shows, because he relert to the efforts of bis friend* to save her from 'hi great outrage, end that he knew and unler stood the facts. It is difficult for the imag.ua tion to conceive of a crime blacker than the one Moulton has committed on thi lady. MR.

ScAWPALora Chakkks Auaiict Thkii MiwiaTBRe?tv>rre*pon.1cnoe of t)ie N. Y.

O., |>realding. About 2Vi memlterv were pree ent. Three minuter* are on trial. Tbe Kev K. K. Kolterta waa yeatenUv etpelled from the ministry of tbe Methodm 'Episcopal Church tor conduct unbecom ng a Cbriatian minister. The Kev. B. Mat*teller had left his home for the pnrpose of attending tbe conference last veer and he had been seen on the car* with a woman ot doubtful character, and had never been seen or beard of since. Although a great deal of acandal * as connected with the above raaea, the conference kept them vtry quiet, not even di vulging what the charges were: but tbev mu?t have been ot tbe "Beecber sort ' in the i a?e o? Kobefa, who was expelled. Nothing haa been ?lone as vet in the raaeot the Kev. B. Marateller. Some people think that the woman be was laat seen with had "seduced turn" from the patbs of virtue, and that the minister was under ber In fluence so far that be dared not again return to the wile of bis bosom. Stilt others claim that be seductd the woman, a la Beecher. and left his borne with her and is still living with ber. It would not do tor him to return, a* he will, no doubt, be excelled It is a sail caae truly, but it froes far to t-bow that ministers are nit "Infalll ?le" by auv means. Another ca?e wee ; reaetited yiaterday. that of the Kev. K. H Proaser. The charges are not lully known as the conference desires to keep tbe matter secret as much a poesible: but I have beard that tbev undoubted ly cor.aisf of imputation* fmrmtlf h i con duct U>aafd the ?

KrKoreAin Tkavbl and T radi.?Five steamers sailed from New York on Saturday for Euro|?e, rli: the Kugland, Baltic, and -lava for Liverpool; the (ilympic, tor i.lnagow, and the Nocker, tor Bremen. Their cabin ptasenger lists made iti the aggregate about two hundred persona. Among the piasengera were Karon Von Telenski,T. Hauibleton, t*eu. K. F. Miller, and Or. B. Beverly Cole. The foreign steam ship lines running into New York are ?am-whet alarmed at the unprecedented decrease of their business The Hamburg line liaa withdrawn 'tWMl of its steamers, the Cremen line has fol lowed this example, the Baltic-Lloyd company has taken of* all its vessels, and the whole tieet is now lying idle at Stettin. This oompiny was obliged to disoontiuue bv an abeolate want <?t business. But all the compknlea are fufTerere to a great extent. None of tbeiu carry at preaent one-half or one third the usual number of ateer age passengers, while freight* are very light, and competition haa driven rato* down so tow that little money can be made. Much of all this Is to be attributed to the general stagnation of businesa, and to tbe tact that information oi the overcrowded condition of the lal>or market In thia country has been spread everywhere tbrougboat Europe. The Philadelphia Bulletin claims that aome of tbe damage has been done by tbe Euro|iean lines rannlng from Philadel phia and Baltimore,which carry heavy freights to and from both cities, while the American line also brings quantities of good* for we*tern importers who were ocne PQiwj-clleJ to bring their merchandise into New York. A M ad Wom AD'S Crtmb?A shoe king affair, says the Pall Mall Gazette, Is reported from N'ewcaatle-on-Tjne. A Jeweas, named Re becca Lewis, about forty years of age, the wife of a slipper-uiaker, suddenly made an attack upon her husband as be was'standing looking out of the window, and stabbed him thrice in the neck before he coulil wreat the kuife from her. He ran for a doctor, and his wife, whom be turned out of the house, rushed into the boose or a neigbbor namec Kaven, and. seizing a table knife, drew it across her throat. Mr*. Karen rau for the polic*, but on her return she found both of her owa children bleeding about the neck, and Mrs. 1aa is standing looking on. The eldest child, a boy about tso years aoc a fca f old. lay on hi* back on tbe floor with his throat cut, and an infant tLree monrbs old lay beatde him, bleed ing at the nouth from a wound apparently caused by the knife being thrust di>wn bis throat. Neither ot tbe wounds was severe enough to prove instantaneously fatal, but tbe chi'dien are in a dangeroas condition, and the infant Is not expected to recover. The infu riated woman, after having her owa wounds dreased. tore of? the bandage ana at tempted to stab ber*elf with a fork. 8be was too weak to be removed to the police station, and an offioer was left in charge ot her. It is supposed that she is insane. A Little Gikl Octraoid at a Car* Mirrine on thi Sabbath Oar.- Laat Sunday morning, when the assemblage of worshippers at Bond's camp ground.
