Setno Emphatic Statements ofa Con
To the Union and American:
Betne, myself, responsible for the spring-
ingot a question m uie "ivoman's iilDle
Mission of Na'hville,'' which I see treated
cf in an article iu last Sunday's issue of
the UXIOX and AMiimcAN-.over the si
nature of Mrs. D H. McGavock, I regard
it as myjhtty, both to the soalaty and the
public, to submit ibe following explana
Tlie qjesUon is : Does the law of the
M. E. Church, South, permit any society
within Ks pale to appropriate and send its
missionary contributions to special onter
prisee, tlirougli auy channel itself may
citoose, wiUHHit suumitting such coiitribu
tlons to be settled by the regular church
aatttorities, in Uic apportionment assessed
upon the charge in which the contribution
was given? 1 took the negative aide of
tlie question before the society.
This occurred on the Oth cf
last month, just one month
before the "recent action of the Board of
Missions," mentioned by Mrs. McG. which
"recent action"' was brought about by Dr.
D. C. Kelley, with evident reference to the
position lie had already taken months be
fore, in the handling of our funds. When
the subject came up before tlie Society, he
evaded explanation, but very emphatically
contradicted my statement; yet lie after
ward applied to the Board of Missions to
eraut a special privilege, in the form of
restoration, which, whether valid under the
constitution or not, might serve the great
eoa at maktug his contradictrau appear
truthful. Mrs. McG. does m t quote the
whole of Ait. XV, but leaves oil the lit
clause, which decides tbe point in dispute.
Art XV reads as follows:
"Any person or Sunday-school, or church
or conference may assume in whole or
in part, the support of a Mission
or a mission school established by tlie
board, and send tlteir contributions directly
to such mission or school, cf whieh the
General Treasurer shall be immediately
notined; 1'roviued, thai the oonierence m
whose territory such moneys may be given
shall Have credit for tbe same, fit settling
the apftorlkmrnetu of the General Hoard.
Please notice that tlte object in requiring
the reporting of a special contribution to
Uic conference ill which it isgiven, is clearly
eaf at f e Ka tLnf t9 twskrvo mai? Iia
given Msewmo the anportwrumnu dm
ded by said conference among its several
charges, according to Art. XIV. How the
question is: Can any power short of the
General Conference itself change this or
ganic law? Again,, if it can be changed, or
so construed as to admit the sense imputed
by this late resolution, will not the laymen
of the church, whose purse n to supply the
treasury, feel sorely atxrievedl It takes
from If m Ute right and power to give di
reciiou to his contributions, and at the
same time to support the credit of his
church a privilege he has enjoyed all his
lite, and one which bis fathers before him
beard sounded out from he pulpit in trum
pet tones, times without number. Now
the moment lie suggests what purposes lie
wishes his con'ribntion applied to, that
moment he forfeits the right to have it
credited on the record of his church.
Furtlicruiore, I claim that in the defense
of this negative position lies tlte trite in
terest of foreign missions, no less than of
the church at ltome. Our great missionary
system, as embodied in the constitu
tion, and acted out in the past.
is quite sufficient for all practical
purposes. It Is the grand bulwark
of tlte church the priceless lecacy

TEACHING THE TEACHERS.
a. onccossral Educator on Koruial
To the Union and American:
As tbe estabJishment of a normal school
in our State is a subject of much moment
to tue people, a word in its behalf just now,
while a bill looking to this end is before
tbe Legislature, would not be out of place.
True, we have beard from our educational
loaders, Drs. Sears, Lindaiey and others,
from our Governor aud many legislators
aim prominent cuiaens approving Ute en
terprise, yet i uesire to rpeair, adding a
word, from an intensely practical and ex
perimental standpoint, having spent years
in the country school rooms of our pub
lic and private schools in this State
awl in Georgia, before, and since
tbe war. All this Uine I have labored and
studied to learn how to teach studied
leacmug as an art and science, and every
day ant I more and mora convinced that
bail teaching is worse than no teaching, and

of inefficient teachers, are deprived of fitly
per cent, oi tne good that otherwise might
You may go to Massachusetts, Ohio or
elsewhere for systems, to this or that city
tor moueis, nut mey will all fail unless you
have thorough teachers in tbe school rooms.
It is directly under their manipulations and
superior skill Utot at y system will succeed,
its good points appear or any benefit result
to the children.
It is difficult, generally, for people to see
and apiireciate the ditfcret oa between ef
ficient and iuetBcbnt teaching. There k
nothing which concerns them so mock,
and yet about which they know so IHUe.
Hence tlie greater necessity for guarding
against imposition by giving to the country
proiesfrionat teachers from .Normal schools.
I liave known a cowiuuuity taught for
years by a feruling, routine, parrot-wo.'ded
pedagogue wkh only this result -lull chil

educator, in tlie same period, bring up, as
if by magic, a community of cLitdren to
the verge of manhood, bound tn each other
and to himself by the strongest fraternal
ties, sensibly polished in manner, refined
in feelins, sound and practical in education.

monument to ius memory.
Theoliectof the Noimal school w not
to add higher grades to tbe public school
course; not at all, but to give us masters
that can impart readily and fascinatingly a
tliorough, fundamental, Bugdieh education.
It is a sad fallacy that any body can take
charge of the primary department. Irre-
pairable evils have liad their source in this
mistaken idea. Defects and bad habits
have been contracted, resisting every effort
oi eradication in alter lire. Indeed none
but accomplished teacliers should take
charge of the pupil from tbe first to the
Now if so much depends upon teachers

THE MISSING MERCHANT.
Xo Cine Yeljns to His Whereabouts.
Diligent search was made yesterday by a
party of young men, composed principally
ot clerks in wholesale nooses, for Mr. II.
B. Allen, whose sudden and mysterious
disappearance ou Thursday has caused so
much alarm. The partv, mounted on
1 torses, commenced at tbe race track and
followed tbe river down stream as far as
they conveniently could with their horses.
They then abandoned their steeds, and
ttrooeedeu afoot, but after a long sea
and, after liaving reached Hyde's Ferry
without discovering auy trace of tlte miss
ing man, they letuntedto the city.
Telegrams were sent yesterday to Colum-
umbia, Franklin, Lyoaville ami other
places, but no satisfactory resiionses were

The Bad Fortaaes of an Overton
Yesterday's Ewxtmille Journal lias tbe
Among the passengers up by the omni
bus yesterd8V at noon, from Henderson
were an old lady named Ellen Hughes,
aged fifty years, and her son, a
puny lad of fourteen or fifteen. They
hailed from Overton County, len
nessee, and were en louta for
Worden Station, Madison County, Illinois.
When tbey took passage on a boat at But
ler's Landing, Upper Cumberland, tbe okl
lady had $50, of which site paid $10 for their
passage to Nashville. Dunne (lie first
night out site wag robbed of $86, tbe
money beinz taken from tbe
pocket of her dress, which she
liad hung up m Iter state room.
The $12 left raid their way to Henderson,
Leavinc their baggage at Uiat place, tbey
started on foot to Evansville. lhey were
overtaken a mile or two from Henderson
by the :bus wheu their destitute condition
being made known, they were taken up
and brougt to this city, the passengers pay
ing the fare of one and the driver bringing
the other free. When tbey reached the
river they had only one dollar, which
some kind hearted citiien of Henderson
had given them to pay their ferriage. The
lad offered the dollar to tlte purser of the
Uncle Buck, who, of course, declined to
take it and set them over Ute river free of
charge. They were directed to the Mayor
with the hope that he would have them
forwarded to Worden Station, where tbe
woman has friends in good circumstan
ces. The woman was plainly aresseu in
lindsey-woolsey.liome made, and expressed
a willingness to go to work if she could
find employment to earn sufficient money
to carr them through. In addition to
her money, tbe thief bad also purloined
her shawl, leaving her illy clad, but some
kind-hearted person, by Uie way, had
. . . rm
given ner anotner suawi. xiie woman
seemed to be an honest, artless old lady
and inspired the fullest confidence on the
part of those who befriended her.''
