Wore Ahont the Now Help io
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

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

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

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

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
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

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
