FRIDAY JULY 7, 1871 Richmond and North Carolina. * The trade of North Carolina shouh mainly come to this city. Our market ex actly suits her product#. We can grind in all her wheat of the went and middle dis tricts, and of course all her tobacco come here. Indeed, we gel the P*' of her tobacco crop now , and near > " ( wheat of the western p.''rt ?' ,,l? fetate There is no pood rea?on why wo should nol have it all. ? There is ovorv ^ i<irjfc distill in? force in this city, which would con jttime the euro crop ol the eastern part o the State. North Carolina has no port of her own Hurt must seek an " outlet " through a sistci State. To which one of all the States issb< more attached by every tie, social and com mercial, than Virginia}' Contiguity, goot market*, warm sympathies, all favor tin selection of Virginia as her market ami place of shipment. Richmond and Norfolt can conduct all her business to the be>t ad vantage. With these conditions we should suppl) North Carolina w ish all her goods and irro scries - or the greater part of them. Oin merchants have suffered from odious dis criminations against them and from higl. charges and transhipments with commis sions to forwarding agents that were enough to destroy their trade and cut their oft from all intercourse with North Car olina. Hut tbere has been a great change, and further improvement In the facilities ol our trade with the North State will .soon take place. Upon the route via Petersburg and Wei don I here is now plain sailing, ltates art moderate, time quick, and cars are inter changed between the roads on the line tc Wilmington, and also on that to Raleigh, Thus is 6i>cncd to our merchants a vcrv productive and extensive part of Nortl Carolina. All that our bnsinessuien havetc do is to cultivate Intercom ?e and trad< with that part of the "State. They wil gain a very large trade in that way. W< again invite their attention to the subject They ought not to permit so bright an op portunity to p;iss by without benefit to tlx trade of Richmond. When the illibera and selfish policy prevailed they bitterlj complained. That policy is abolished ami the door is thrown open to them. Winl shall w e think of them if. after such com plaints, they now tail to avail Ibemsclve: of I he liberal regulations that now prevail' Narrow-Gauge Roads. The Iwo-and-a-hulf-leet-gauge road has been much discussed among engineers ir this country, and, as fyr as we can learn, they are in the main opposed to it as un:id visable for a great many reasons, the chiel one of which is that there must always be a break of bulk at the point of connection of such roads w ith those of wider gauge? the matter of intcrch raging ctrs-and run ning them from the point of loading them to the point, to whic h their freight is des tined being considered every day more and more important. In answer to this objec tion, however, if may be stated that the narrow-gauge road is calculated to accom modate narrow intervals between great lines of railway, and to take that produce to those lines which would otherwise have to be transported on carts and wagons drawn by oxen or horses. So we consider that there must be >t longer objections to the cheap narrow-gauge?cheap in con struction and cheap in running ? be fore tin- decision Js against them. Take a watering-place, for example? one that is I within Jive or Itlii.cn miles of a great line of railway, it might he advisable to construct a very cheap line on the narrow gauge for the accommodation of that spring. Its Ajucsts would fiml the conveyance rapid and easy enough, and if would answer as well as a more costly line. The business and profit ol the owner of the spring might justify him in building the cheap narrow- 1 gauge line, but would be utterly inadequate to the outlay for the moi e costly road at per mile. - i W c imagine the engineers and the public will have to compromise on some fair ground. The country intervening between the main lines of travel and transpoitation mu>t have some railroad accommodation w hieh has not yet been afforded to it. The system of transportation by railway has left such locality s in a most unfortunate condi tion, and il* they are not to be provided for the railroad system will be imperfect and unsatisfactory. "What is exactly the best gauge for these intervals is not yet fairly settled. "VVe sup pose we may assume as true tliattbe costly broad-gauge is impracticable for this pur pose, because there is not enough money in the legion Interested, nor enough pros^ rective business, to induce capitalists to supply enough to build the costly broad gauge roads. To confine them, then, to ihese costly roads, would be to deny them the use of railways in the transjiortation and travel across these sections. This ctHi not be. Some gauge that is economical and sufficiently effective will have to be deter mined upon tor the use of the people left out of the immediate range of the great railway lines. The British Government appointed a commission In 18G9 to ascertain what guuge should be adopted for the " Indus Valley," and other projected railways. The report of this commission has been adopted by the Indian authorities, and it is thus decided that three feet three inches is the width for all the State lines. This gauge will be ap plied to lines extending nearly 10,000 miles in length. This is a very decided step. Still much experimenting will yet have to be gone through before it will be settled what is the best gauge for the limited (lis tricts where money enough to build costly roads cannot be had. The subject is one of very great interest.' It is indispensable to society, since it hss been brought under the dominion of rail roads that they should become searching and thorough, so that all territory worth cultivating shall be accommodated by them. Hobacs Gbeelky has been accused of having spoken eulogistlcally of General Lee during hiB late northern tour. At a New York Henry Ward J the personal character of Lee in very high terms. Mrs. Kcekley , the colored servant of President Lincoln's famHv who w rote a book about her lite at the White House, says in this book that on the very morning of the assassination Mr. Lincoln took up a portrait of General Lee, bcanned the lace thoughtfully, and re marked : *' It is a good face ; it is the face of a noUle, brave man ; I am glad the war is over at last." Gbeelby on Dabwinism.? In a recent public address, ilr. Greeley said: There are those who talk sonorously, stridently of law? of the law of develop ment or progress?as though they had found in a word a key which unlocks all the mysteries of creation. But 1 am not silenced by a word: I demand its meaning, and then seek to determine how far tliui iucanlutf bridges the gull' which the word was Invoked to overleap. To my appre hension, law is tlio lUctatc of an ihtelliyeiU will, of it is nothing. LOCAL- MATTERS. Baptist Educational Convention. THIRD day. Morninir Sennfon. The Convention was oj>ened with singing :iiid pravcr by Rev. G. M. P. King, of Wash ington, I). C. They then took up the or der of the day, , ADV ANT AGES OF ASSOCIATION IN THE PROMO TION OK EDUCATION. The essayist on this subject being absent, several gentlemen were eallcd on aud ex cused themselves. Professor S. S. Greene, LL. D., of Brown University, spoke of the great advantages of comparing methods. IJu did not believe in blindly following the methods of others. Each institution and each pro fessor can best me his own methods. But we conn- herewith a desire to get and carry away with n? the experience aud wisdom of others. If they had at the North anything that was good, they wished to give it to the brethren here ; and ao they wished to carry away the many good things which they heard here. He spoke of the good to come of the mingling of brethren of the two sections. The brethren of the .North had been cour teously and kindly received here, and they would" be glad to "welcome southern breth ren there. Kev. Dr. Reynolds, of South Carolina, thought that one great advantage of this meeting was the minding of men from the sections and the comparison of views. He alluded t*> the discussion of yester day, and spoke of the very admirable spirit shown by the brethren from the North. lie wanted the two sections to know each other, and this could be best accomplished by such meetings as these. "Rev. l)r. Parker, of Washington, replied to what had been said by Dr. Reynolds. He appreciated the misapprehension that had existed between the sections; hut lie hofn-d that this was passing away, and these meet ings would greatly help u> to nee eye to eye. lie had wide opportunity of observing the condition of things from the Potomac to the Gulf, and lie desired to speak ot the great courtesy with which he had been evervwhere treated. Professor O. T. Mason, of Columbian College Academy, spoke of the very great advantage of this Convention, as fixing the metes and bounds of the academy and the college. He had now learned how to bound an academy, and keep out " little Charley " until he is large enough. He also spoke of the advantages of seeing aud getting ac quainted with these educators from all parts of the country, lie had taught Gieene's analysis all his life, and was now glad to meet and know him. Dr. ('urry called out Kev. Dr. S. .S. Cut ting, the originator of the educational com mission. Dr. Cutting spoke of the educational commission under which these conventions have been held. It was a uir'qne body, consisting of about thirty gentleman, who paid expenses without calling on the de nomination at large. He gave an interesting sketch of the great gathering at the convention .'it Brooklyn last year, aud <>1 the happy influence of this and" the local conventions since held in forming a public sentiment in the denomi nation in lavor of the highest standard of education. lie believed that there was a great work to be done, not simply in building up exist ing institutions, but "in forminga healthful public sentiment all through the country. lie wanted that the .Stares should all be stirred up lo a generous rivalry in the pro motion ot Christian education," and he be I lieved thaj this as?ociition would bear a mo.-t important part in hi ingiug about this j grand rc>ult. He wanted another national educational meeting, and suggested Philadelphia as the place. He thought that the influence of such a convention would reach not only all parts of our own denomination, but would ex end, also, beyond the limits of our own lines. RELATION OF SCIENCE TO COMPLETE EBUCA * TION. The order of the day was announced to t>e the address of Rev. Dr. Alvah llovey, ol' Newton Theological Seminary, Massa chusetts. The reputation of this gentleman as one of the most distinguished and successful ??ducators iu the country made I ho Conven tion very anxious to ho^ir him, and lie was listened to wiiJi profound attention and deep interest. Tlic address abounded with beautiful illustrations, and sparkled with tfoms oi thought and beauties, of diction, of which the following abstract, for which only we have space, gives only a very im perfect idea: The topic of this paper was the relations of science to a complete education. After stating that afulland satisfactory discussion of the theme would require a careful analy sis of the various powers and susccptii>ili ties of man, and then an examination of the influence which the pursuit of each great branch of learning has upon the>c powers, and so upon the complete education of the inau. the author of the paper selected for comparison, as to their disciplinary and ed ucational value, the physical sciences, and the ancient language of Greece and Koine, ought more time to be given in tbe college to natural science than to the classics? Or, ou?ht the natural sciences to be sutlcred to exclude the classics from the regular curri culum of college studies 'i A>.-umiug that the latter question ought to be answered in the negative. two argu ments in iavor of giving the lirst place in a course of liberal study to scieuce, were ex amined?viz : 1st. That the sciences ore particularly attractive to the youthful mind, affording an iulinite variety of facts, a phe nomena to the inquisitive intellect, keeping the curiosity of the pupil ever awake, and leading him to more vigorous mental exer tion than linguistic inquiries arc able to se cure. This argument was deemed unsatisfac lory for two reasons. The youthful mind has" a natural tendency to language, and finds enough to stimulate curiosity in the phenomena of a new language, especially if it be one so intrinsically noble and peculiar as that of Greece or that of Rome. More over, the value of a study for discipline is j uot to be measured altogether by its power to attract the mind. The reading of fiction may be peculiarly interesting to our youth, but its educational power is more than questionable. It was noticed? - 2d. that science is said to unite the ad vantages of utility and attractiveness. The knowledge of the natural .sciences is of great service to educated men in the work of hie. and such, studies ought to hold the lirst place, as do most, other things being equal, to furnish youug men with the in formation they will need in life. It was admit ted by the writer that this argumeut is not without force. The principles of natural science have been so largely applied to the industries and acts of modern life as to give them a certain claim to precedence on the ground of utility. But the primary object of liberal culture can never pe utilitarian , it uiuot be the development of manhood. Hip formation of character, and this end is, on tlie whole, best secured bv study which ha6 no conscious reference to pecuniary results. In favor of assigning to the classic tongues the first nlace in a course of liberal education it was Lhen ur?'ed: 1st. That language is the nat ural organ and means of thought ; that the nrocess of learning to think well and speak well is a great part of education, and that on this account the 3tudy of a fine language must contribute directly to the work ot education. But it is conceded by those competent to judge that the Greek and Latin languages are unsurpassed as media , for the expression of thought. 2d. That language is the great storehouse of know ledge, and theretore deserves a high place iu liberal studv. Every great language has treasures of its own? treasures of wisdom, philosophy, history, experience, and song; and the student who masters a new lan guage takes possession of a new world. Uut'no languages are in this respect to be placed on a level with the Latin and the Greek. They also pervade the lite rature and science of our age. 3d. That the i-tudy of language reveals man, and man is the apex of creation. No object on earth Is worthy of so much study us the na ture of that being who outranks all others bv virtue of a higher intelligence. Man is also the only moral being on earth, and tbe study of his actions is always bringing the student afresh to the ideas of right, auty, responsibility, virtue, and especially to that ot a persoual God. And, finally, classical study enkindles a love for the best litera tare of the world, comprehending in itrelf the finest sentiments; the purest taste, the ripest fruits of reason. imagination, and moral character which the race of man has furnished. For these and RimUar rttwonslt was urged that the classics ousht to haw the first place in a system of liberal studies, nnd science be remitted to the second place, if, Indeed, mathematical studies should not be honored with that position, and physics referred to a yet lower one* The address was referred to the Commit tee on College .Education. Kev. Dr. Sears desired to express his hieh satisfaction at the views of the address and the manner in which they had been brought out. He would exalt the importance or mathematics and tho physical science, and have them fully and thoroughly taught , in the schools and colleges. But on the other hand, he would never allow ? fake the place o? the classics. They treat of man and his history, and furnish a train ing and discipline which nothing cne can. JIc would nave in the colleges a place for both the classics, and for mathematics and the sciences, and did not believe in any onesided svstem. He defined a " liberal education " to be that which teaches the knowledge of God, man, and the universe. He considered that no course could reach this standard without mathematics to un lock the physical science? these sciences to teach what is in the universe, and the classics to discipline the mind and te:u:li the history of man. Each has its peculiar value which cannot and should not be dis pensed with. These two branches are the ?reat pillars upon which all true education But he argued that we must, meet these questions, and arrange our schedule of study, not as wc could wish, but as we find the necessities of the age and our colleges demand. He would not tamper with a dozen sciences, but would rather lay deep foundations in mathematics, natural philos ophy, and chemistry. He would have the elements thoroughly taught ; and so with the classics. What he would aim at would be rather thoroughness tliun extent. Ho urced that the number of studies is a great curse to our schools and colleges. lie thought that many fbinjjs niust bo tauglit incidentally, and that the different depart ments of the college should help each other. The professors should, by consultation and cooperation, dove-tail their coulees into each other, and keep up a constant and active cooperation. lie illustrated and enforced his views at some length and with an ability and earnestness which com manded attention and excited deep interest. Lie would have all of the parts fused into a , common, harmonious whole-? each helping the other aud promoting tlic interests ot tiie 0tjicr. ? Pr. Jeter had been deeply interested in the discussion, aud had had his conviction that there is something in the universe be sides matter. Mind is of far more import ance. , lie recalled some very amusing remi niscences of a teacher he went to school to in boyhood, who proposed to teach (but none of the boys learned) the arts and sciences. , , , _ Dr. Jeter desired to hear from Rev. Dr. Toy, of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. , , bev. Dr. Toy had likened to the discus sion, and wished to dissent from a part of it if he had rightly understood it to take the position that there is not great dis ciplinary power in the study of the physical scicncc. His studies for some time had been in other directions, but he insisted that there was very great disciplinary power in the accurate study of physical science. He thought that the mind could be dis plincd by the facts of science as well as by studying Latin aud Urcek roots. lie would not have the study of science and that of language arrayed against each other, aud he would have our Christian colleges teach more thoroughly the sciences. He had given most of his time to the study of language, but he iusisted that ihe natu ral sciences should have their legitimate place in anv course of college study. He gave some illustrations, and ably and earn- | cstly argued that we can study man through science as well as t hrough language. Rev. Dr. Samson wanted these discus sions to take as practical a turn as possi ble, and was making some suggestions in that direction when the hour of recess ar rived. METHODS OP RELIOIOITS TEACniNO AND IN FLUENCE IN ACADEMIES AND COLLEGES. After the recess this subject was taken up, and llev. Dr. A. B. Brown, of Virginia, led off in the di.scu?sion. After some fac;e rious allusion to the circumstances under which he was called out, l>r. Brown said that lie thought that the best wvy to teach religion in the sehool-j was not so much by direct means as by making our teachers' " Living epistles, known and read of men." He would have the teacher and professor so pervaded with the spirit of Christ that each one would sec him cacn/where, and make his pupils see Him. He would have the teacher thoroughly alive at the same time to science and to Christianity. He traced the history of Christian education, and said that there was strong presumption against the churches taking charge of edu cation in the example of Christ and his apostles, but argued to show that just as we are not now required to hug the shore, as did Paul in hi* mis sionary tours, so we may, and must prepare to meet the demands of the times in which we live, and be prepared to meet error in all of its forms. He elo quently argued that the Gospel has been ihe great conservator of the classics ; that literature and science have received great blessing from the Gospel, and that, in turn, these should be pervaded with the spirit of the Gospel. He would not oppose what is beina: done bv* the State for education. He would rejoice that she han us up at Char lottesville a great luminary, and that she is now having drop-lights which go into all the cottages, and even the cabins of the sons of Ham." But the people of tho Living God cannot consent to take off their hands from our educational system, lie argued that there is an intimate connection between Christianity and the higher branches of lite rature and science, and that we should put at the very fountain of each the conserva tive salt of* the Gospel. Literature and science had wandered away for want of this conservative princi ple, "and he eloquently urged that we should bring them back by having them taught by men in full spirit with the Gospel. We need the Christian geoloeist, astronomer, historian, and man of .science, to imbue everything with the spirit of the Gospel. HeTd not want the sciences barn-strung, but be wanted tbcm free to walk as the hand-maids of the Gospel. The Church has need of literature and science, and cannot safely trust them to be taught by others than those who have the spirit of the Gospel. He would have us get as near as possible to the origiual truth of the Gospel, and he would have our teachers go from their elosets to their classes. He would have a nucleus of divine truth in all of our schools. He would have more or the spirit of the Gos[?cl to pervade all of our schools. 11c paid a glowing tribute to the ei poor whites" of Virginia, (of whom he was proud to be counted ones) and said that he wanted them taught, and especially led to Christ, in the schools. The above brief outline gives but an im perfect idea of this splendid effort. which enchained attention and has elicited the highest commendation on all sides. BKPORTS OF COMMITTEES. The Committee on Enrollment reported the list of delegates as published In the Die patoh this morning. Kev. Mr. Peterson, of the Methodist Church, and Kev. J. T. Whit ley, were invited to seats. Prof. Toy read the report of the Commit tee on Education in Colleges as follows : *' The Committee on Education in Col leges beg leave to report: That they have examined the papers re ported to them, viz: That of Professor ilart, on 'The Question of Proscribed and Elective Studies in Higher Education.' jiud that of President Hovey, on 'The Relation of Science to Complete Education,' and without endorsing all the positions and statements, regard them as careful and use ful discussions of the subjects assigned. The results of the discussions may be briefly stated as follows: 1. The college mi^st maintain its own plan and do its own work distinct from the academy and the university. 2. The training of the college must be both disciplinary and technical, and the course of study must embrace the -Greek and Latin languages, physical sciences, j mathematics and philosophy, history and I literature. 3.

C. II. Toy, of South Carolina, read this address. He proposed to consider rtvst the necessity of an increase ot minis teS which he showed by comparing the ?t itistics of the Baptist denora:-1 lion with those of others. The Bap tists of the South have only one muiis- j tcr to two churches, and when we add to this the number who are engaged in other avocations, the deficiency is still greater. Tie would not have the ministry increased t)V secular considerations. The schools and Slle^ cannot make preachers.

Under the head of ministerial support, be KtachS minister himself ? should tcach his people their autv. There should be a sustentation fund to aid feeble churches, and also a fund tor tbe widows and orphan* of deceased ministers'. The address was able and eminently prac tical. Kev. Dr. Cutting believed in seeking out individuals and providing them with the means of education, but be would have mure and belter academies, where the power of tbe Gospel is felt, where our sons will be converted and led into tbe ministry, lie gave interesting statistics on this point, mentioning one academy where out of sixty converts at asiugle levival forty were led into the ministry. , . . 4 Kev. Dr. Jeter spoke of having heard that in Montreal alone there are more young men preparing for the Roman Catholic priesthood than for the ministry of all the | Protestant denominations in all the l> Jilted ? Slates Do urged that the yreat need ot ' our churches is men. They are very sc'irc e? bipeds are abuudant ? but we want earnest, well-qualified, self-denying men. We should pray for these. When God calls preachers they are preachers indeed. We want more prayer and more of sue 4 God-sent men. Dr. Toy's address was referred to the Committed on Publication. Kev. Dr. Cuttins moved that it is desira- J ble to establish an educational magazine. Dr. Cuttiuu thought it very desirable that we should have a common medium of com munication. Dr. Jeter was in favor of such a maga zine, but doubted whether it could bo sus tained. The resolution was adopted. Rev. Dr. Green read the report on ACADEMIES. The report urges the establishment of n number of these under the charge of our best men? that the churches and pastor* should encourage these academies? and that they should be feeders to the college and the theological seminary. Dr. Greene explained and urged the points of the report. The existence of colleges necessitates the suspension of academies. He urged that the primary schools and academies should bo carefully adjusted to the college. Prof. C. L. Cocke desired to second tbe report and the views expressed in the ad- ' dress of Dr. Greene. lie thought that the Baptists of Virginia had been guilty of bad policy in having too many academies, which have broken down --until we have no system. He urged that we should have two academies and one college among the Baptists of Virginia. Prof. John Hart endorsed the views of | Prof. Cocke. He did not think that the public schools could possibly meet all of our wants, es])e cially in l-eligious instruction. We want two academies to stand between the pri* mary school and the college. Kev. W. D. Thomas reierred to the fact that whatever may be true now, we had j had in Virginia a system of high schools i doing far better work than the academies could do. He did not believe thit wo should com mit ourselves to the policy of denomina tional control from the primary school to the University. Rev.Dr.Hovey believed in, and earnestly urged the policy of, denominational schools and colleges. Before taking his seat lie desired to re turn thanks for the courtesy shown him and his other brethren fro*r? ihe Worth. | Kev. N. W. Wilson O.ouvled whether the Convention shotrtd exprew itself in fuvcr of the public-school system. education op cofoaan pxomb. Rev. Dr. Poindexter read the report on 1 this subject. The report takes the ground that the free schools provide for the pri mary instruction, hut that we should en courage hfgh schools and seminaries for education of colored preachers. Tho committee do not agree with the Idea of the address that the time has come for a great univcftdty for the colored peo ple, but they do believe that irion of all sec tions should give their sympathy and aid in all suitable means of giving instruction to cotured pre?ehers. Dr. Jeter very heartily approved of the report. , Dr. Poindexter explained that his speech the other day was made for two reasons : 1. There are southern Baptists who think that northern Baptists oueht not to do this work. 2. There were northern men who did not appreciate their obligation. He wanted each part*- to recognize and act upon their obligation. He had no inten tion of wounding tho feeling of any one. Rev. W. D. Thomas, of South Carolina, regretted that he could not vote for the re port. Ho did not think that we could give a general endorsation to these seminaries ? that we could fully cooperate with those engaged in it, or that we should unduly maunifv, as the report does, this work. Mr. Thomas earnestly and ably enforced his views. Rev. Dr. Jeter again explained and ably urged his views. Rev. Dr. Caswell desired to say for him self and for his northern brethren, that they should carry away a grateful remem brance of the Christian courtesy with which they had been treated. Dr. Cutting spoke of tho interest in the reliaious instruction of the colored people which he had found all through the South, tie wanted a clear expression on the sub ject from this Convention. Dr. Sears had the most painful solicitude as to the religious interests of the colored people. Ho gave a gloomy picture of tiie character of many of the colored preach ers, and said that unless we do something for them they must sink very low. Rev. TV. D. Thomas wanted it to be un derstood that he warmly favored givin" the very best instruction he could to tWso people. He only wanted proper methods pursued,, and he could not endorse all of these seminaries or the principles upon which they are sometimes conducted. Dr. Poindexter moved to amend the re port so as to make the endorsation to be restricted to such of the seminaries as are conducted in such manuer us we can ap prove 1UVU. The report, as amended, was adopted. The usual vote af thanks was passed, the President (Dr. Boyce) made some earnest and touching remarks; and at half-past 11 o'clock the Convention adjourned with prayer by Judgo Runyon,of New Jersey. Meeting of the Academy of Medicine. The regular semi-monthly meeting of the Richmond Academy of Medicine was held last niyht in the City Hall. The subjcct of the use of chloroform and chloral-hydrat in obstetrical cases was discussed until a late hour. Personal.? Hon. D. A.
