Editor Or mycburg Times :
I am glad that the Editor has
made some comments on mine of last
week. Others may have misunder
stood, as he did. I am much pleased
that he has given me space for setting
a few matters in a different light, but
I think, or expect to be able to show
that Dr.- Newell is not so far wrong
as might be supposed. The forbear
ance of the reader is asked, for the
continued discussion, because of the
vital importance of the question.
1 take it that Dr. N. had reference,
as I had, to country schools whore
only a limited and much interrupted
time is at the command of parents
and pupil. '1 he Editor has shown
where the diilicu 1 ty lies, in quoting
from Dr. Calkins of N. Y.
"Children from five toten should be
taught facts and train the percep
tion." This lib doubt includes the .
letters, spelling, reading, ike. Five
years schooling?"from ten to fifteen
train the memory b}' Geopraphy,
Declamation, &e. From fifteen to
twenty, Mathematics, Logic, Are."
This gives fifteen years schooling.
Why you may teach everything
reasonable in that time. We will
drop five years, (and then many here
haven't as main months oil'anil on.)
These gentlemen sticklers for thor
ough training evidently never lived
in a Southern pine wood. They
seem to take it for granted that
everybody has ten or fifteen years
continued tuition without off* and
Let us liken these ofls and ons, say
to candle ends, as everybody knows
what they are. TtiiS whole, spelling,
definitions/ and 'grammar can be
? learned faster, and much more pleas
antly by ^extensive reading, even of
the paper of the day.
Of correct speaking nnd writing, it
is certain that if a child hear noth
ing but pure Latin, he will not speak
?cannot speak or write anything
else. The same of French, the same
of English. But, if his parents and
associates speak jargon he is bound
efficiency with the labors of the ex
amining oommittce. He misunder
stands. Trie word effccichcy has
reference to the effects of the teach
er's labors in the school room. This
should be looked to by the trustees,
but isn't. The examining committee
is our surety as to tu>mpetnu;y-?sq far
rio complaint.-, have been heard. I aril
indebted to this committee for per
sonal favors, which 1 alii glad to ac
I am interested in the well-doing of
our schools, and the Editor is also, no
doubt, interested as Commissioner.
For that reason my paper was sent to
It is to be hoped that our school
fund will produce better results than
the $ 15,1)00 voted for the Tea experi
ment at ?Sumincrviltc. We learn from
Wni. Sanders that three hundred
dollars is the expense attending the
outlay of sixty dollars in value of
labor. We were about passing our
cups down for Summerville tea, but
will wait uutil the mansion is
renovated, the dry lake bridged with
iron, and other works so necessary
to the cultivation of tea be concluded.
They don't consider that the time
of children sent to a room where half
are in and half out alternately is
I really believe if there were no
funds, there would be more and bet
tor schools in some places.
Now, as to Grammar, 1 would not
be understood as objecting to it al
together; but syntax and prosody
require a very matured capacity; yet
it is some times, to satisfy some
fond parents, attempted too soon. It
is like piittifig a tough mouthful, into
the mouth of au infant without
'The writer does not profess to be
ah expert grammarian; and, alt hough
he thumbed the books as usual in
boyhood, in the limited way he is
speaking of, he was as ignorant
of the more abtruse parts as he was
of Greek. He does not object to the
primary study, if we have the candle
ends to spare. No doubt it develops
tin1 memory, arid like almost any
other study, has much to do with the
maturing of the mind.
Dictionary', well we used to spell
dictionary, bei n hing at A, and by the
time we were at, B, the end would
give Out and the next, teacher would
start us at A again. But. in the
mean time the "American," the par
ent of the blue back, saved us from a
dietionaryMcath. It is quite easy,
so far as spelling goes. First the
primary word, then one or other of
the. various terminations. But I
think it requires the whole candle to
learn definitions clear through.
For each let us allow a months tui
tion. With; o.no little bit of candle, we
conquer A, B, C?it ia certain wc
have to begin" at the beginning, no
matter -what stupendous terms may
be used in theories. With scvernl
others wc may be'allowed'to spell
and read, and with t|ie few ends we
have left, we certainly waut tb study
as hiuch arithmetic as possible, writ
ting and Geography; and now ! think
our light is gone. In fact more has
beeu allowed fliguratively, oh this
paper thdn many .Southern boys
What will the gentlemen do now
who"juirip'tip and vociferate for the
supcrstructure":tb rough the 'windows
of which ihc student may vinw the
promised land of erudition.
There are good schools that are
nursed by* patrons, and there are good
teachers, that are encouraged, ami
kept from year to year." These of
course could no'; have been alluded
to in mine of last week.
Now comes, the incucus?flic old
man of the sea, that weighs down
the school f?nd sufineness. A be?on
?our-l.neks-and?let the School-run
?itself?dream. "If they depend
upon the fluid alone; it is too small
to do the whole work," '(Kd.) They,

upon the public school until it is a
broken stick. They send fifty,'sixty,'
or seventy children to some poor, tor
tured, distracted, smothered school
marm, when a few dollars contributed
by the parents, would hire an assis*
tit lit and make the school a success.

A I'rophctie gpeoch.
A year ago I sat on the Gloriette
at the palace of Scbonbfann, near
Vienna, engaged in a conversntion
Which recurs to nie frequeiitly in
these days of our peril. .My Com
panion was aged 90, clear-headed and
still young iu his feelings. lie was
as keenly ajive. to all going on in the
wide, wide woi'Id as he had beeu long
ago in the days jylicn he had beeu
an active arid somewhat prominent
figurein politics and society. He had
entertained every eminent American,
including General Grant,, who had
visited Vienna, and few men at home
or study more carefully our institu
tions then did he, and does he to this
moment. We were talking of Amer
ica. It is possible that I was talk
ing a little boastfully: at least, it was
with much pride. The soldiers
guarding the palace entrances and
the body of the Emperor had sug
gested to me in contrast, sind happy
contrast, t?>o. our nun home simpli
city, and 1 told of how safely our
President went about without guard,
sometimes walking down Pennsyl
vania avenue quite unattended. 1
believe that I gloried ill the fact that
ho iiended no military guard. The
old gentleman 1 urued a serious face
toward me, and with a prophetic
note in bis voice, he said, ".Meine
Dame, your country Iihs need to fear
from this feature of which yon boast;
You seem to know not what you are
harboring. You inviteevei'ybo ly to
come to your country; you lake our
piurdcrers and robbers and forgers,
when they can escape us, and you
make them as yourself. 1 know the
Nihilists, Communists and distur
bers of pence w ho go to you. ami wdio
must work among you like a li tie
lenycii in the bread; I know the eriir
g.ant, always ignorant, and some
times vicious, who goes, pelhaps,
from my own estates, and upon whom
you thrust tin' ballot and political
power. If over a sovereign heeded
personal protection it is yours. Only
a good Cud has kept you safely. It
is beautiful in theory, but your Prest
dent and your country through him,
a eat t be mercy of any lunatic; any
?ndividunl crazed by your peculiar
?system. It will surprise me not at
.ill to hear any day of the assassina
tion of the President .of the United
Stilles; und you are blind that, yon do
not see this and protest against it."

of the,sessions is also increased to live

t>tead of live as last year.
A very noticeable fact this year, is
the intercut displayed in the Insti

In answer to a call to the teachers
to form a Statu Teacher's Assoein
tion, about one hundred ait.I tvVenty
fiye teachers assembled in the Opera
House on the afternoon of the Uth
inst. An Association was organized
with Dr. Carlisle as Pics., and other
prominent men as officers, and a
large number of members were en
rolled. Addresses were delivered by
Profs. Archer and Davis. Several
othci meetings of the association were
held which were addressed by Col.
Thompson,Pros, Townes, Prof. Dib
ble and Dr. Carlisle. The Associa
tion was started under very favorable
circumstances, but it is hoped that
by the aid of the teachers it ma3" be
made a useful, live, organization.
The Southern Educational Monthly
was chosen as the ollicial organ of
1 he Association.
Hut where are the teachers? How
many can slay at home ami feel that
they do not require instruction in dis
cipline and the science of
education and the common school
branches, and Indrc especially the
educating influence of social inter
course with other teachers, on which
so much stress is laid by our belov
If the teachers but realized of
what advantages they were depriv
ing themselves, if they were fully
aroused to the importance ami mag
nitude of the work, instead 'of the
two or three hundred now in attend:
'anee, there would soon be live hund
red, earnest in the pursuit of the
instruction to fit them for" future
work. It is not yet too late. Let
teachers i nine from all parts of the
State, and there will not be one who
will not return to his work with great

with a thankful heart for the Insti
