Editor Nebraska Advertiser: Being on a trip to England, I tho't on my arrival here I would give you a few jottings by the way. Leaving Jirownville " on Tuesday, February 12th, I crossed the Missouri on the stage for Phelps Station, and was; surprised to find such a stirrintr placo for so young a town. I think it would have been much better though, had the C. 1. & St. Joe road built their line nearer Brownvillo. I saw that a switch was being put in for Brownville, which I hope will be in runn.ng order by May (at which lime I hope to return to Nebraska) giving us connection to all points east, north and south. Going on the IJ. &. M. It. railroad through a section of country fine for agricultural nur-usts, though the soil is not etuial to Nebraska for fertility. Nejtherdidl find as good water for drinking as is found at home. I crossed the Mississippi at Burlington on a line iron bridge, a description of which I have not time to give. Sufiice it to say that what j has been done at Burlington, can be j done on the Missouri at Brownville. I cannot give all particular in one letter of what I saw and heard, on my trip here to New York. I cro.-s- tere at Bell- re of a bridge in the United States thence through West Virginia, along the Potomac to Harpers' Ferry. It is impo-sible to describe the beautiful scenery through this "oclion of country. I would ear nestly recommend my Nebraska frb'mls visiting the East, to ome on thJc route to see the Switzerland of America. This section of country is histori cal, and had great interest for mc; but for agricultural purpo-ps it i- poor! poor! indeed. I passed through Iowa, but I found no place where f would exchange mv home in Glen ltoek for tt nom'1 ay of tljL' states, - . I would like to yive yo-ir readers n description of tlie Works wl.Jch arc being done on He 1-Gnte, Astoria, Long Island, where they are at wtsrk drilling and hhvting the rock under Eat River, fur the purpose of blow ing up the rocks in the channel of t..e stream, giving a afe transit for stea mer rp File East h waking up to the ad vantage.-, of the West, and you may expect such an influx of btiaugera as Nebraska never saw. If you would wish me to write you from England, I will do so. My ad dress for two months will be Winstcr, Derbyshire, England. S. Wagstaff. .cr -s53 Here is an extract from the letter of a young lady in Chicago to her af fianced in Washington: We expect to have a new bouse built in u tew weeks, jut around the corner from where we formerly resi ded. I am very glad you did not come to this city when you intended, for then you would be like the rest ol" us half scared to death.

In the Normal Department, a dispo sition has been mauifesled to atteu pt far too many studies at a time, to too great detriment, alike of the thor oughness and mental habits of the student. This has been measurably corrected, and will beslill more fully corrected hereafter. The course of study will be revised, nnd made inpro adequately to represent the present status of the Normal education, in cluding moie professional training, as well as be more fully adapted to tho circumstances antl wants- of Nebras ka teachers. The students will bo thoroughly drilled to teach whatever is taught in the model school, and whater should be taught iu tho com mon schoo a of the Slate and by tho most approved methods of modern, normal scie. c-. Each of the clashes of the throo" years' course is represented in tho school. The senior class, however, is s nail, consisting of but two meuv bers, who are m iking gootl proficien cy in their studies, ami bid fair to graduate, re-pectably, in June next. The junior class is larger, containing someeightetn memln-rs. This is it good class ami will do credit to them selves and the school. The rest of the i students, though nominally in the first year s course, have a range ci two years' diversity of at'ainments. Many of them caunot enter upon ju nior studies next year, a.- proficiency, rather than the time engaged in study will constitute the criterion for ad vancement. Work upon the new building has been commenced, and it is expected that the building will be finished du ring tbe current year. It is much' needed. Already our need are great er than our supplies for them, and aij' ci-n-tantly increasing. If the build ing were completed to day, we should have use for tlie whole of it. The next term will cornmenco Thursday, April .", 1372. Rooms can b.. provided in the present building for ladies, at a rent of $4 each per term. Gentlemen find rocrns in private hou.-es in the vicinity, at about tho same co-t. Board, without room, three dollars per week ; with room, S,2" 1 1 So.50. Room- in the building are furni.-het! only with a box stove. No incidentals, nor other extra eharjf- , except for iiistiomeiital music. Many of the student-", both ladies and gentlemen, boa id themselves at an expense scarcely exceeding that oS living at home. Respectfully submitted. Alvin D. Villiam3, Prineibh.1. Vli'it'ii 111 n.
