'MISS BROWS" 1POM SCHOOL
TEACH ISU.
"Btlortd Star:"? Years ago, before Dame Kx- !
perience had tried ber hami upon me. 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

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

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

The White Lsauukks in Louisiana.?A

Orleans Picayune publlabes an address, signed
by fifty persons and business firms, calling a
meeting at the Clay statue at 11 o'clock a m to

private firearms by the state authorities. It is
understood that messengers yesterday notified
the white leagues to attend, as it is lotended to
make a demonstration in force.

The latest statement of Mr. Moalton 1* the
signal for a new start for the report?rial inter
viewers ot the. 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.

unbearable stench proceeding from the insur
ance and law office of Carson & McFarlaud.
on South Adams street. Both these gentleman
had been oat of tbe city K>me days and their
office closed. On breaking in the doors a hor
nble sight met the view. Suspended by a slen
der cord trom a hinge in the office door hung
the body of Herman Niehaus, a young Lai
abf'Ut 14 years old. employed by the tirm as a
copying clerk. The b?xly was bloated and de
composed, and had probably been hanging

charge of the office, and had probably hanged
himself in the manner described after the de
parture of bis employers. No possible cause
can be assigned for the act.

conference ot the Methodlat Kplaoopal Church
met for It# thirty-ninth animal aeeaton tn thia
city on Wedneaday I act, Biahop Jeaae T. Peck,
"? 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

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.
