Tcaclicr'tt Instil ate al deovfjia. A Teachers Institute under the direc tion of Mr. A. E. Itankin, pecretary of the Board of Education, assisted by Mr. Jonathan Tennoy, of Albany, N. Y., commenced its scs&ion at Georgia on Monday evening by a lectuic fit m the Secretary. Notwithstanding . be heavy condition of the roads, the remoteness of the place from railroad accommoda tions, and the sparsenc-s of the popula tion, the attendance on the lecture was good. To the credit of the people of Georgia it may be said that an educa tional lecture always would dnwv a bet ter house there than a puppet show or a troupe of negro ministrels. The ad dress on the first evening of the insti tute is generally understood to be more particularly for the IcneiU of the people generally, than for the teachers, as a class, and the attendance of teachers from abroad wa quite limited. We noticed, however, among the audience Mr. C. D. Mead, of the Swanton Graded School, and some few individuals who-o names are unknown to us. We confefess that ..'o entertain an in tense dislike for some of the features of our institutes and for none more than for that which, in utter disiejard of the in dividuality of the teacher, and of his so cial relations, masses all, teachers and people into an audiendo ( ) be talkers in discriminately. We arc not of that class who believe that the things of the past are much better than these of to day. "Wo believe that this is an age of progress and that in nothing is it more manifest than in our educational insti tutions, as a whole : but we at the same time believe that up in this little cor ner of the laud, known as Vermont they have been for some time under a dark cloud which we had hoped will; the new Board and new Secretary to see mensuaably dispelled. Here are toucher.-) from the different towns of the co mty , and possibly from tovn3 not in this county, and (he great o." part of them w.ll go away without having learned so much as the name of any other teacher beside the two or throe who.by special appointment, have been set up to talk at them. "Wo have have the fortune to attend institutes in several different States, and in many counties of our own State, and wo have somehow acquired the opinion that by far the mo jt valuable element of a suc cessful institute is that social clement which, in our Vermont institutes lias not only been discountenanced, but has been absolutely crushcQ under the iron heel of the one-man power. Wo do not have so much as a roll to which wo may resort for information. But we had forgotten that our old fogy notf ns ought not to bo ventilated in this progressive age, and have madu a tad digression, for which we hope to be pardoned. The first day of the institute was occu pied mainly in the usual routine of the Vermont Institute, somewhat diversi fied, however, by tlm introduction of some miscellaneous exorcises by Mr. Taylor, of the St. Albans schools. The second evening was occupied by Mr. Touney, in the reading of an instructive lecture. Tlio first hour of tho second day was occupied by Mr. Tenney, in tho discussion of tho method of getting up an interest in the study of geography. Tho second hour was occupied by Mr. Mead, of Swanton, in what ho was pleased to call a class-meeting, Ho said lie was not brought up in a Methodist pursuasion, but ho had a high respect for tho class-mectting and he hoped all the teachers piv-ont would bo frcv to give in their experience, all would be able lo draw tome consolation aad pro fit from homing experience of one another m scouring attendance, in over coming difllculties in olas exerelics, etc., etc. Mr. Taylor followed in a scries of routing and remarks full of good hit nnd practical MtggcHUtint, anil withal, Fonie severe hits at thopeop.oofj the town for letting the old brick relit ol house, where he and many olheiv, who have made their mark in t he world, had received their elementary training. The, afternoon was occupied by Mr. RiuUin and Mr. Tonncy. .Ai iiaii-pii'M null, (me ui uieniiisi in (cresting and profitable institutes ever held in the County, wim appropriately closed. The number of tone icrs p resell i was about forty. We belive that the senti ment of the people of ("Jeorgia is het ex-pr.M.-eil in the plain homely phrases, Thank you come again. 0. S. Ii. The Meetianics' of Atji'ieitllitve J'.-'. Soil E.rlHtitHlioii. The New York World says that the late gieat improvement in the median, ies of agriculture, while it has given ease to the human mmclc, docs nothing to wards replenishing tho soil with the ele ments which are yearly taken from i t by cropping. It says: It is a far more cheering sight to see a line of sturdy reapers swinging tho cra dle on wheat fields that will yield .'!.. bushels to the acre, than to watch the motions of one of those automatons, a MeCormick, or a Buck-oyo, or a Clip per, doing its swiit, clean work, in slen der, scutered, half-filled gram, that will not average it) bushels to the acre. Less ingenuity, we say. and more true tiirm. Those came, and rods, amijour nals; these conical rollers, steel cranks, and cutter bars, have no ellecc on the soil. They do not make thestand good, nor persuade the wheat heads to fill out. There is ground lor general alarm when we see all over the country, from the Hudson to tho DcsMoines, from the head waters of tho Chattahoochee to ls- iska Lake, a steady annual decline In the yield of our wheat fields. The aver age for the past year Int. not been over rJi bushels. in the great, lertile, and boastful fcr'tato of Ohio, they have raised kss than lour bushels lo the acre : and on tho virgin soil of the Northwest, on sod just rotted, in a tilth as full as na ture over niake-i it of thertime constitu ents of fertility, they have produced less than hall tnoaveiago that England gets from fields .hut have been tilled ever since the days of Agricola.

Mr. Canlield spoke in opposition to tho bill, llewasopposedto introducing a police regulation, to intorefere when the goon sense ot patents and guardians should prevent. J t would do no good, practically, lo lorco children to sehoo, in this manner. It ope: s the door for litigation and expense. Every feature in the bill was objectionable, 'flic State had peiibr.i cd iis luty when it pro vides the means. Mr. Dale explained iiis vote on the substitute bill, S. U7. lie was friendly to the general purposes ol tho bill, but was aware there were many objections to it, as urged by the Senator fro 'ii Bennington. Its intentions are to pick up vagrant children, and compel their attendance upon school.

Mr. Grout, of Barton, said ho was in favor of a pait of the bill, but was oppo sed to the part of it which made it ob ligatory on the Governor to remove at least two of the members of the board each year. He moved to amend so that instead of tcquiring the Governor to ic movo two members ea.ii year, ho shall be required to re-appoint at least three members of the board, at tho discretion of the Governor. U on inquiry of Mr. Miner, of Man chester, xilr.

Mr. Conant, of Grafton, moved that tho bill bo dismissed. Mr. Fisher, of Westminster, demand ed tho yeas and nays, which, being tauen, wore as loi.ows : i oas, Io j ; nays, .'.. bo me bin was dismissed. Mr. Minor, of Manchester, moved to reconsider tho vote, lor the purpose ol pioposingan amendnnint making the legal rate of interest seven and three- U nths percent. Mr. Fisher, of Westminster, and Mr. Landon, of New Hnven, oppo.-cd tho re' consideration ot tho vole, as they wore opposed to any change in the legal rate ol interest. Mr. Glced, of Morristown, said tho proposed omendmont was simply an at tompt at tinkering. lie said that the rate of interest would regulate itself, let tho law fix what rate it would. The demand and supply would alway. regu late the price ot money tho rate that should be paid for the use of it and any statute relating to tho matter would bo simply a dead letter. Mr. Converse, of Woodst ek, fully concurred wit.i mv. uiced in his re marks, only that he would go very much further. Any limit to the 'uto of inter est was detrimental to tho interest of tiie Sta'e. Mr. Bri 'ham of llydopark, said he thought it a mistaken policy to limit the rate ot interest, it the object ot recon sKlering tho bill was to propose an amendment fixing tho rate at seven and three tenths per cent., or any ot.'.er rate lie hoped it would noc be reconsidered Other States have passoil similar bills and they have worked well. lie was sorry that Vermont could not see the advantage ot the pa&sagc ot this bill. Mr. Fisk, of Isle la Motto, hoped the rate would bo reconsidered. Mr. Grover of Wells, thought the mutter was pretty well settled by tho decisive votejust taken. He was of the opinion that the rate of interest ought to bo r lseu to maice an uniiormitv in this and other States ; but lie could not consent to open wide tho doors; and leave stiu wider uiiieronccs man now Bettor have tho rate remain as it is than to try the experiment of an uu limited rate. Money is not an article of commerce, but simply a medium of exchange in tho business transactions of tho county. Tho identity or scarcity of money did notregulato the rate of in terest that must be paid lor it, but tho amount of profit that could be derived from its investment. Ho would seek a medium and middle ground, and hoped rato would bo reconsidered, and that an amendment would bo adopted fixing tho rato legal rato at seven and three-tenths per cent. Mr. llolton of Jamaica, opposed any change in the rato of interest. Mi. Fislior of Westminister, said that now the poor man can purchase a farm and give security at six per cent. In tho vicinity where he lived tlioio was no difficulty about tho present rate, and he thought the State ought not to aiil tho speculators by allowing them any higher rale of interest. Mr. Baldwin of llinesbuttrh, hoped that the vote would not bo reconsidered, Mr. Glced, of Morristown, Mr. Grout, of Barton, and Mr. Miner favored reconsideration. Mr. Underwood, of llardwiek, said he could got all tho money in tho State of Vermont at six per cent, that i ho could give security Lor. He said; tho money-lenders of New York are as over-reaching and grasping there with the legal rale at 7 per cent ; n we raise the rate hero it will not change the over-reaching and grasping disposition of the money-lenders. iir. converse, ol woodslocic, said no was glad there was a place in Ver mont whore mo-iey could be had at six per cent. Ho supposed, that like tho price ot nutter and cheese, tho rate of interest would be governed by what it would bring. Our ban Us and our money-nitm, witli comphcenoy and with "impunity, violate the law every dai', and then lay down and sleep sweetly, with no compunctions ol conscience, uc said the poor man could not buy the necessities for his family at old prices, but must pay much higher than ten years ago. it lie wants to hire money to meet pay ments on his farm, lie cannot get it at six per cent of his neighbor, but must pay higher. That is tho rule; there may l;o a few exceptions. If we cm enforce the six per cent rule, ho was opposed to any change; but it cannot be done. Money will go to oili er States where it will comma ida high er rate. If wo keep 1c as ii is now, tho poor man must pay not only a nignor rate of interest, but a premium above the rate for the risk tho money-lenders take in breaking the law. Special iloticcs.

I would not wish to assert anything that would do i jus lice to the atlllcted, but I am obliged to sav that although it, may bo produced from excessive ex haustion of the powers of life, bv laborious em ployment, unwholesome air and food, profu-e menstruation, tin- use of tea ami cotl'ee, and fre quent childbirth, it is far nftener caused by di rect irritation, applied to the mucous membrane of the vagina itself. When reviewing the causes of these distres sing complaints, it is most painful to contem- iM.iui me luieuiiani evils consequent upon tliem. It is but simple illstico to the siihlect to miuni- crate a few of tho many additional causes which so largely affect the lite, health, and happiness wi minimi in an classes ot socieiv, anil wlilcli, consequently, affect more or less diiec.lv, the welfare of the entire human familv. The mania liiat exists lor precocious education anil mar riage, causes tho years that nature designed for I'lupiuum uovoiopmciii to no wastcil anil per verted ir. tho restraints of dress, the earlv con linenient of fcchool, and especially in the un- iiuiuuij e:uHcuiciii oi mo nan-room, inns, with the bodv half-e'othed. mid tho niiml inulnlv oxeitod b. pleasure, perveiting in midnight revel the hours designed by natuie lor sleep and lest, tho woik of destruction is half accom plished. in consequence ot tlm early strain upon her system, uniieceseaiy efibit is required by tho delicate votary to retain her situation in school at a later day, t ins aL'L'r.ivatiti!,' the evil. When one excitement is over, another in piospcctive keeps the mind inoibidly sensitive to impression, while tho now constant restraint of fashionable dress, absolutely forbidding tho t xereisu indis- pensaoio to tno attainment and retention ot or ganic health and strength; the exposiuo to night air; the sudden change of temperature; tho complete prostration produced bv excessive dancing, must, of necessity, produce" their legi timate effect. At last, an early marriage caps tho climax of misery, and the unfortunate one, hitherto so utterly regardless of the plain dic tates and remonstrances ot her delicate nature, becomes an unwilling subject of medical treat ment. This is but u truthful picture of tho ex perience of thousands of our young women. Long before the ability lo exercise the func tions of the geuerutiv. organs, they require an education of their peculiar nervous system, com posed of what is called tho tissue," which is, in common with tho leinule breast and lips, evid ently under tho control of mental enotions and associations at an early period of life ; and, as wo shall subsequently see, these emotions, when exerssivo lead, long "before pubcrity. to liabitu which cap the very life of their victims rie na ture has self-completed their development.
