A very Interesting puMIc meeting Look place
yesterday at tho Fcmalo Teachers' Institute, at
tho northirest corner of-Tonth and E street,
ta this city, Tho occasion that brought tho
teachers together was to listen to a familiar ad
dress from ex-Gov. Boutwell, (M. C.,) of Mass
achuattti, who Is considered a prominent man
In educational matters, ns well as politics, he
having always manifested great eoltcltnJo lu
these thlnga In his own State, and ho feels
anxloni to give tho benefit of his long, Invalua
ble, and profound experience toothers. Amontr
the guecta prcaent were Surgeon McQowan, of
huo army, a msunKuisnoa scnoiar, froi. iienry,
of the Smithsonian Institute! Her. Dr HIscox.
ltastor of the Stanton street IlantUt Thrush
I New York, and the Rev. Mr. Grey.
I Z. Richards, Esq . the conductor of the In
stitute, presided. Tho exercises wero opened
Eromptly at two o'clock, the hour appointed,
y a warm and earnest prayer by the Rev.
Grayj after thcro was Mnglng by twelve young
ladles.nnder the direction of Prof. J. II. Uanlel.
Miss Flannery presided at the piano-forte.
I Ei-Govcrnor Don t we II was then Introdnced
to tho andlcnce. Ho said It had been a loog
time since he had spoken on educational mat
ters. He complimented tho promptness at
which tho meeting was called to order. He
fonnd In tho world people aro prompt, Just In
proportion as they aro earnest In the work,
theme, or subject they are engaged In; henco,
when they make an appointment they should
bo there just on tho minute. Promptness Is
the key of success to tho farmer, mechanic,
and professional man or woman.
In teaching one of tho first matters to be
attended to Is promptness, punctuality and
regularity! for without tho possession of these
qualities, thcro can bo no great snecess In life.
I They might go along tolerably well, stumb-
i ung tnrongn tne world, but decided success
was doubtful. These were called tho minor
morals, with others that he had not named,
lie saldonr schools generally undertako to
l teach too ranch. He was always shocked
when ho hears of a new study Introduced Into
our school) when ho did. he felt very much

I There Tore tho first duty of tho teacher Is to
teach the art of reading well. Thcro aro fow
persons that can read well. Keadlng Is la
Itself to bo classed among tho most liberal
t endowments: It Is to be ranked among the flno
i arts arts, like sculptnro or painting, music or
J orator) perfection In them Is glicn to but
few persons. To read well, requires the care
ful training of the voice. Thcro aro always
physical facts to bo considered In doing this.
The lungs aro tho motive poncr or machinery,
and tho force- which Is used to read and speak
' Is atmospheric air.
I Ho then gave a fow rules for tho training of
, tho volco, its inflections, articulation, enuncia
tion, acctnt, emphasis, and pauses. He showed
that good orators coma from good readers, and
that good reading la one or tho most efllclcnt
I aids in advancing the causo of moral and rell
i glous Improvement! hence a correct and taste
ful elocution Is necessary. The speaker then gave
i his views In tho manner of toachlntr urammar
and history the former by Illustrations on tho
blackboard, and the latter by reading those
portions relating to tho hlslory of our people
and nation. He said of dictionaries, that, on
the whole, Worcester's dictionary was con
sidered tho best authority) It has uhat ho con
siders tho best pronunciation, and the usago
and Illustration and derivation of each, and
what tho pronunciation of tho nord ought to
bo. He then gave examples of true and false
pronunciation as occur at tho present day.
Ho thought that our public school system Is
better than any private system can be. There
tho children meet their future associates and
learn each other's natures aud habits. Thcro
aro many adrajHages of tho public school over
tho prlvato one, which tho speaker fully ex-
filalned. One was self-reliance, Ithout which,
n somo degrtfo, thero Is no real success. Ihe
child of poor parents Is more Ilkoly to learn
his lessons well than the child of rich parents,
Just In proportion as they are taught to lu
self-reliant and act for themscUcs.
Ho said our present system of putting voung
and Inexperienced teachers our our primary
schools Is wrong. The best teachers that can
be had should bo placed over them. If there
were to bo experiments made In teaching, they
should not be made In the primary schools.
Ho then gave a lucid plan for teaching arithme
tic, and Illustrated his arguments by putting
questions to thoso present. His remarks
throughout, and of wblch the ubovo Is only a
synopls, wero familiar and practical. Tho
company present could not but havo been edi
fied. At the cXise of Mr. Bout well's remarks, thu
choir of young ladles sung the song of tho
"Bravo Boys," with excellent effect, which
showed they were ln the hands of a skilful
Prof, Henry then made a short but eloquent
address on tho office of the teacher. Exercises
ln reading were then given, and thu exercises
closed with prayer,
A Swaup Full of Ksssl Disketeks. Tlie
