Later: The Fore fliU find the Bounty Bill were defeated in Congress before adjournment. Wore Ahont the Now Help io Wnryvillo College. From the Knoxvilie Chronicle. In your issue of the Oth inst. thcra was an announcement of a successful trip to Ne w York in tho interest of this cullege. Let me add a word. Two years ag) last summer that princely Christian merchant, Hon. Win. E. Dodge, of New York, made a liberal conditional tubsenption to wards securing a philosopnical and chemical npptralna for tho benefit of Maryvilla College. Oilier amounts bad been contributed from various sourcos, so that it seemed possible, even in these pinching times, to raise, among iriv acquaintances, the amount to $2,000. On such a mission I darted, but not without somo mis givings as to my success. In a few days tho wholo sum desired was wnrcd. ' Somo superior instruments were purchased, and contracts made for oonipleto sets for the different departments of science. To tho honor of that old meftora 'lle firm in Cliff street, New York. Phclpi, Pod go & Co., it should be fltjated that more $.ian one third of all I sccurpd was, contribute by that finURj. inn eon suiting with oiv of the most disliii!tfvibed mUh'Hlei'H in Jfew - - - at - Yoik ancto my best course, he said : "Go to the Dodges ;" '-that is jnet what I fchould do, were I to raise tlie money." T!y will ),c'p you." It will cheer any mato meet with such greetings ns.'ere extended to rnyseit in fRo'iiiaiiSiOu on Murray Hill, ocru piad bv those noblo Christian people, Mr. and Mrs. Win. E. Dodge, Jr. Then, in that same firm, r.re others who are not rained Podge v. !io have tho sario noblo gtneroain -Jarues and Stokes. All tho men in this honovablo firm demonstrate tho genuineness of their religious professions, by tho nolable fact that they go into their pockets and disbars) to tho noedy. It seems easy for them to respond to the calls of bencvolenco. In a few minutes checks for hundreds and fifties were put into my hands. Honorablo mention should bo made also of Messrs. Coming, Hyde, Carter, Hawkins and llalsey, who responded liberally to our requests. Tho wholo amount has been invest ed for the benefit of this institution, and will bo held, not by the corpora tion, but by a few friends of the College for future use. From what has been told me, this is the most extensive and complete apparatus that was ever brought into East Tennessee. Many of tho articles will be nicer than is found in many of our old, rich colleges. A fino telescope, upon an equatorial mounting, .fcc, having an object gla::s of 4 inches in diameter, has been purchased of II. O. Fitz, tho builder of that huge instrument owned by the celebrated Mr. Rutherford, of New York. Somo of the instruments will be formed nfter new models, and will be much hotter than thosa in the old styles. A. spectroscope has been ordered, of gior.ter power than one of Brown ings', which cost several hundred dollars. Wh-vu the apparatus arrives it will bo exhibited to the public in connection with lectures upon various scientific subjects. It is our purposo to give all our students an opportunity occasionally to witness illur.trat.ions of many beautiful scientific facts. No words can express our gratitude to tho liberal donors who have re sponded so generously to our wants. We hope to merit the confidence of all our friends in all sections of the country, and make this College a still greater power for good to all who cornc to these halls to receive instruc tion. r. M.

EDUCATIONAL DEFARMT. S, Z. SHARP, Editor. A Card, EniTons BtrcsLiCAX : I desiro spaco in your columns to to state, for tho information of your readers, especially of this county, what to mo is tho most gratifying intelligence that th noble and res olutj manner in which the people, in co operation with the Directors of the difi'.-'icnt school districts of tho conn ty, are prosecuting the work of build ing school houses, leavo but little doubt that during tho present year every school division in tho county will lie supplied with a comfortable and commodious school house. The determination with which the people liavo entered upon this work is such, that even in districts where the late freshets have swept away saw mills and in some cases the lumber intend ed for building schooMiouses they have not changed their purposes, but nro still resolved "to go ahead as soon as possible," and secure, what our school law guaran tees to every district that will provide for itself, good houses and other appliances, a good school for at least ''live months in the year." Indeed the spirit in which the people have entered upon this, tho first work un der our school system, has assured mo that onr public schools will very soon bo ample and competent to accommodate every child in the county. As section 45 of tho school law makes it "the duty of the County Superintendent to report to the Chancery Court a list of tho school districts" in his county, I will, before the first day of June, visit every school district in the county, J'roci dSiive pcrnittinq, for tho purpose of ascertaining the boundary lines of the districts, and suggesting any cL'n:ges thp.t may bo desired- by t!.e people, so that personam any district, who may be more conveniently situ ::U u to school horrrs in other dis tricts, and who deoire it. rosy, by the. usent of tlie Directors of their own districts, be transferred to tho other district, and may have tho privilege of aiding and 1 ..ving a vcico in the erection of said house.
