These asso ciations are designed to impart instruc tion to teachers in the modern sciences', in a condensed form, or a review of the attainments of te sobers in the departments they have previously studied. It ia'not to be expected that teachers can acquire, in the course of one session of our Institute, all that is important in the qualifications of a teaoher. They must devote untiring application to study previous to attending a oourse of Institute exercises. The prom inent features of the oommon branches of English are-discussed in these associa tions. Although he may not comprehend many of the propositions here discussed. yet his mind may be fixed upon them in such a manner aa to be examined at hia leisure points that had not hitherto enter ed into his literary labore. We rrgret too muoh change among teachers has hitherto characterized the meetings of our Institute a large num ber of former membra being absent, and their plaeee supplied by new onea. It is desirable to see accessions to these meet ings, but the former members lose ground by not attending regulator. The course of instruction should be progressive, and those who may be absent will lose the con nection in the course of instruction. Let every teacher in the county be well post ed in the following departments of etudy: I. Elements of the alphabet; 2. McGuffey's Fifth Reader;1 3. Physical Geography; 4.

Vaughn, Indian agent from For' Peirre, arrived in town yesterday evening. lie atates that the Indians on the plains are in a very unsettled condition: in tact assuming a hostile attitude. The Black I'eet, Apaches, and Sioux; Manacunques, bansare, and Yanctnoa, banded in a mighty host, and scoffing existing treaties. have unbuned their hatchet, and bid defi ance to the powers that be. . These tribea combined with the Brulaya and Ogalalie of the Platte, numbering at a email ealcu lation three thousand warriors, have thrown up fortifications on Draining Bull, at the aource of Grand River, and are not only ready but anxious to meet any force that Government may aend against theml Emboldened by the ease with which they killed our soldiers in the late skirmishes, and remarking the terror ever sinoe man ifested by the whites in their necessary intercourse with them, and a scoffing at the powers of the United States to dis charge them of their stronghold! The Asinabianes, . Riccarries, Covatrea and Mandatnea, having the fear of the four new regiments before their eyes, hv told their agent, Uol. Vaughn, in council, that they will not only aid and ahet.but furnish ma terial assistance in subduing their refrac tory brethren.

Coirecpondeuce et the Leudoo Times. Full Details of the Attempted As- sassination- Paris, Sunday, April 196 P. M. The attempt made on the life of the Emperor last evening is, as may be easily supposed, the most interesting topic of the day, and for a while the siege ef Sebaa topol snd the Conferences of .Vienna are lost sight of in the horror excited by auch an act of villainy, the contemplation of the consequences to Europe had it takes effect, and the general satisfaction at lis failure. ' J he statement of the principal facts as published in the Moniteur of this morning you will have received, 1 trust. long before the hour at which I write; the particulars which are not noticed in that paper, but which I have reason to believe authentic, I now communioate. The Emperor, acoompanied by two of his household, Colonel Ney and Colonel Valabreque, in plain clothes, loft the Pal- ance of the Tuileriea about 5 o'clock to take his usual ride in the Champs Elysees, and join the Empress, who had preceded him, and wa9 at that moment in the alley Dauphine, in the Boie de Boulogne. Hia Aiajeaiy on these ocoaaiona is never ac companied by an escort, and waa only followed by two grooms at aome distance. the weather fine, and the grand avenue of the Champs Elysees, through which he passed at his ordinary alow pace, as well aa the aide alleys, waa thronged with peo ple, who shewed the usual courtesy and saluted him respectfully. As he approach ed the Barriers 4e L'Etoile, and when nearly opposite the well-known place of amusement, the Chateau dea Fleura, a man, apparently about thirty-six yeara old. of dark complexion, and a little under the middle size, advanced forward from the throngs that crowded the pathway on the right, and approached to within five or six paoes of the Emperor. He put one haBd to hia hat aa it to salute his Majes ty, who was in the act of replying to the jcompliment, when he drew a pistol from underneath his gray paletot, deliberately presented it at the Emperor, and fired At the same moment Uol. Ney, who wae on the Emperors right hand, but riding a little to the rear, advanced his horse, when the assassin, supporting his pistol on his arm, fired a aecond ahot. At the first re port the Emperor's horse shied a little, but it was probably that movement which saved the rider, together with the tremulous me tien of the assassin's arm. occasioned by the failure of his first attempt. Neither shot took effect. The second ball is said to have grazed the Emperor's hat, or even passed through it, but this is not known with any certainty. The shot were very sharp, and the re port loud enough to be heard on the third floor of the houses on the side of the ave nue. The assassin waa at once eeized by two Masons who were working at a house hard by. end who had left tne building to have a sight of the Emperor as he passed. He was thrown by them on the ground. A police asent named Alexander, a native of Corsica, whose duty it is to follow the Emperor when riding or driving without escort leaped out of a amall carriage he occupied, to the spot where the assassin waa struggling with his oaptora and pre vented him from drawing another pistol. The polioe agent took hold of him, and aa the other made the most violent at tempts to shoot those who detained him. inflicted on him, in sell-defence, two wounda with a poniard cane. The Ser- gent-de-villb aiding the police agent, suc ceeded in maatering and disarming him. but it required all their efforts to prevent him from being torn to pieces by the peo ple. He waa hurriedly taken on to the Octroi atation at the barrier, which was not far distant, and there sheltered from the popular rage until a carriage could be brought, in whioh he waa conveyed under the guidance of the police to the Conoi ergerie. After the first shot was tired the emper or bent his head a little, either by an in voluntary movement to avoid the bullet or owing to the horse shying. When he saw the assassin in the hands of the people. and his clothes torn he called out to spare him, and I am assured his words were 'Kparvnexlene le tuex pat, le mitera f The Emperor did net lose nis presence ol mmq lor an instani. ne gratefully replied by frequently taking off bia hat and bowing to the thousand accla mations with whioh he wae at onee saluted as he still slew! y advanced toward the Triumphal Arch. A measenger had oeen sent on ei a gallop to inform the Empress, who waa at Porte Dauphine, Bots ae Boulogne.; oi what had occurred, and to reassure her aa to the aafety of her husband. In less than half an hour the Empreaa returned from her drive in an open carriage, wi:h the Emperor riding close by. The sight wss touohing in the extreme; Her Majesty wae deeply affected; teara nowea in spue of her: she in vain essayed to dry them and ahe sobbed convulsively amid her efforts to smile with joy at her husband's escape from the murderer. Evidently she could not subdue her emotion; she leaned btck if hef oarri,ge. end relieved her . . noontrol heart in an uncontrolled burst ol tears Then, indeed, it waa that the people who throne-ad the way gave full vent to the more generous feelings oi our nature The sight of the young end lovely woman, unable to restrain the agony of her feel ings, produced an instantaneous effect; the shouts at once rose irom ins inousaae who beheld her. end hundreds of work mm who 'were employed on a row ef bouaee constructing near the spot from which the assaaain fired, lined the hall- fin iahad walls, the window sills, or clung to the poles of the soaffolding, and rent the air with their acoiainauons. nooom neniad bv these manifestationa of popu far feeling, the Empress proceeded to the Palace. in S inon lima mm nvwa waa spread abroad, end the members of the . . . . .. .. j Imnarial lamilV. tne Amoessauors, ine Minister of the Emperor, the high funo tionariea of State, and the membere the household, besides a eonsiderabl number ol other persons having no func tiona under that Government or in ih Palace, hastened to present their congrat illations The Emperor had previously snnounc ed his intention and that of the Empresi to be preaent at the Opera Comique on the Boulevards Itsliens, nearly opposite tha Ree Laffitte. . He and the Empress notwithstanding what hod occurred, were punctual to their word; ., Thev arrived at the theatre about o'clock.- but lone before that hour an im mense crowd had collected on the Boule vard. from the Madeleine to the Rue Vive una, te manifest their sympathy at his escape. It is oalculatad that there could not have been less than 200,000 people of every condition collected. The reception was most enthusiastic as the Imperial car riages, attended by an escort of Guides, drove up the Rue de la Paix and Boule vard until that stopped st the door of the theatre; and on their Majesties appearing in their box, the whole house rose and uttered the warmest acclamations. For a considerable lime it was found impossi ble to commence the piece,, and during tbe performance the audience, aa if una ble to keep down its feelings, rose three or four times to give vent to them. 'The Ei.nperor and Empress left tho house ai 124, and even at that hour the multitude still lined the Boulevards; the shouting wss enthusiastic, as before, and followed them until they entered the Palace of the 1 utlieries. - The assassin, 'on his arrival a: the Con ciergene, was at ouce examined by the Prefect of Police, and then bv the .Minis ter of Justice. The examination is kept secret, but it appears that the man's nam? is. according to hi owl account. Livarany. He professes himself to be a shoemaker from Rome, where he statea he suffered much from the French bombardment of that city; and that since then he has sworn a personal hatred to the Emperor, and waa reso'ved to kill him. This story ia not credited, and it is supposed that he is but the instrument of aome higher hand, and the agent of those conepiratora whose ideaa of liberty are inseparably associat ed with asssssinatiou. He ia said to be Piedmontese, and to have come from London. His hat snd the revolver which he used in the murderous attempt are also described aa Enulish manufacture. He remains, ef course in close custody. It was intended at first that the morning papers should not notice the attempt, and it was at 10 o'clock last nieht. when the popular manifestation was so enthusiastic and ao general in favor ofthe Empress.that the communication which has appeared waa sent round to them. There oan be no doubt that among people of all classes there is but one opinion that of indigna tion against the murderer, of admiration at the cool courage of the Emperor, and of tender and affectionate sympathy for the Empress, The assassin refused to tell the names of his aooomplioes, it he has any. He haa reaidad for aome days past at the Hotel de Rome, on the exterior Boulevard Pigale, near Monmartre. The proprietor of the Hotel and the porter have been ex- lamtned. Archbishop Kenrick's Letter. The concluding paragraphs of the late Paaloral Letter of tbe Arohbishop of Bal timore to the Biahops and Prelatea of the Province of Baltimore, are as follows: Beloved brethren ofthe laity, we em raoe you all with paternal affection, and ntreat you to walk circumspectly, for the ays are all evil. You know what man ner of precept we have given you in the ame ot the Eord Jesus, for this is the will of God your sanctifioation. Be pea ceable, sober, just and faithful in the per formance of all duty towarda all mankind ractice patience, forbearance, charily towarda all. In the exercise of your rights as free citizens, remember your responsi bility to God, and act aa freemen, but not a having liberty as a cloak for malice. but as the servants of God. Respect and obey the constituted authorities, for all ower ia from God and they that resist the rdinancea of God, purchase for them selves damnation. To the general and atate governments you owe allegiance in all that regards the civil order: the authorities of the churoh challenge your obedience in the things ol salvation. We have no need of pressing this distinction, which you fully under stand and constantly observe. You know that we have uniformly taught you. both publicly and privately,, to perform the duties of good citizens, and that we have never exacted of you, aa wa ouraelvea have never made even to the higheal eo olestical authority, any engagements in consistent with the duties we owe to the country and italaws. On every opportune occasion we have avowed these principles, and even in our communications to the ate pontiff, we rejected aa a calumny the im nutation that we were in civil mattera ubject to hia authority. a 'Be not disturbed at (he misstatement ol bur tenets which are daily made, or at ef forts to deprive us ef our civil rights, and of the confidence and esteem of our fellow citizens. Formidable aa is the combine lion for this purpose, we do not doubt tha't the justice and good aenae of the na tion will aoon disoover the groundless ohar acter ofthe suspicions thrown on the fidel ity of catholics, whose religion teaohea them to respeot snd maintain the establish ed order of society, under whatsoever form of government they may be placed. . Tarnado in Michigan. A correspondent of the Detroit Times writing Irom Dexter, statea that on Tuea day evening, 1 5th inst., about six o dock, the towne of Linden and Waterloo, the former in Washtenaw, and the latter, en adjoining town in Jackson, were visited by one ofthe most destructive tornados that waa ever experienced in this section of the country. 'It seemed to come from the west, and though 1 have probably heard but of part ofita ravages, it has undoubt. edlv been rife with great deatruotion. ' The house endbsrn of Hon. M. Uordon, on the edge of Jackaon county, were com aletely leveled with the ground, aa ware elao thoae of John L. Youcum, of Linden, in thia county, whoae family were severe ly injured end many ol whoae oattlo were killed. The reaiaence oi Mf.Lown ena Washington Bemen were deetroyed in ite wake, having passed on the edge of the dwelling of John McGinns, but only des- strovms a portion oi nis timoer land. These are only a few instances in one lo .-. . cality of the destruction of the tornado, . . . ... i . . i and probably a nine nas not yei oeen learned. So powerful waa the wind that on the farm of Patrick McfJumes, it took a large oak atump out of the ground and carried it at Least sixty rods. Jogs were carried at an immense distsnce. and the water of a email lake near Mr. Youcum'a waa blown entirely out ofita bed Fenoes and atanding timber were completely de inolished. I fear the effect in sections not vet heard from. In the east of Linden it seemed to fork off the main track hav ins been about thirty rode wide, and in some places blowing up the ground in the most decided manner.

This article has excited much in terest, it being regarded in the light of iNapoleon a defenoe or his oonduct. - - The points which the explanation under takes to discuss are: What were the gen eral causes of the war? What interest had France and England to carry an ex pedition ao far from their own shores? - At what point do the different interests of the different Statea of Europe touch upon the question of European order? Hew are the four guarantees to be accepted on either side as a basis for negotiation?.. Is it just, is it useful to limit the power of Russia in the Black Sea? Will the Vien na Conference result in peace or war? The object of these inquiries ia to en lighten publio opinion, so that on the eve of the decision for peace or war, now about to be made, France may be ready to accept peace or war with equal confi dence. The . article proceeds to discuss these various points. 1 he original oause of the dispute waa a small religious olaim of the Latin Chrunans. Kussia seized on the pretext to acquire political power in the Eaat the question cea?ed to be religious and become political the French Gov ernment aaw the danger England C first did not. but afterwards did, and fell in with the viewa of France, and as all Eu rope waa threatened by the aggrandising policy of Russia, -'uothing," aays the Moniteur, "was more legitimate, more just before God and universal conscience, than thia resistance by France and Eng land." Arriving at first at the theatre of war, those two powers confidently await ed Austria and Prussia to join them to re store the --equilibrium of European order.'.' Austria and Prussia did, to an extent, iden tify themselves with the intereata of the West. In the protocols signed at Vienna, they recognized the rights of Turkey, and rejected the advancea of tbe (vzar. Whet they wanted was not courage, but confi dence. Napoleon endeavored to re-as sure them by declaring that France did Hesitation I not desire eggrandizement continued in the oounoils of the German powers, end the war commenced. Final ly Austria asked the Allies if they would till consent to treat on the basss of the four guarantees. Tha Allies thought they had a right to exact more, but to gain over Austria they consented, and the treaty ol Deo. 2d, 1854, waa made.. Buttwothinga were possible as the result of this treaty, either that the negotiationa, therein pio posed, would auoeeed or fail. If they sacceded. rood terms were secured, if they failed, Austria's alliance became an armed and offensive one. - Tbua, in either case, it was well to necotiate et Vienne while continuing to fight in the Crimea. As to the propoaad terma ol peace, they are just and equitable, coes into a long and It is absolutely neoessary to curtail the Russian oower in the Black Sea. All tbe power of Europe will unite to restrain the ambition of Russia, but no one wiahee to humiliate her. What ia asked from her. Europe haa a right to expeot.
