tio Seymour, dcc.«4ce.
Leaving Pittsburgh on Iberia, 20 p. M
train on the Central, reached Harrisburg
in time tor a good night’s rest and ipvig
orated for a day light tide up the Basque
banna to this place. I need not speak oi
the beauty and grandeur of the s cenery
so well known as characteristic of this
route, nor the safety and comfort of these
reads, now, I believe, entirely controlled
by the Pennsylvania Central, as this fact
is a sufficient guaranty that n«> expense
Will be spared to secure these ends to the
immediate object of my visit here
at this time is the 13th Annual meeting
of the National Teachers’ Association.
Xour readers may gain some idea of the
Importance of the gathering, when in
formed that twenty-nine of the States are
represented in this meeting. The array
of talent gathered hero has nevp| been
equalled at any former session of the As
sedation. Possibly larger numbers have
attended at some former session, yet I
learn thht the enrollment of members has
never been so large. Another improve
ment observed "la the heartier co-opera
tion of College and Public School men,
and the larger attendance of the former.
The General Association is presided
over by Prof. B. H. Northrop, of Conn ,
one of the best presiding officers this or
any other gathering ever possessed. In
the afternoon the Association divides it
self into four sections, meeting in differ
ent portions of the city, namely, the
Normal '. Department, Department of
Higher Instruction, Department of Ele
mentary Schools, and Department of
Superintendence. Carefully prepared
papers are read by distinguished educa
tors, in each of these followed by discus
sions on the points presented in the pa
pers. By this plan much more is accom
plished than if the Association met as a
while all the time. General meetings
-are, however, held in the morning and at
night, where a similar order is pursued.
This arrangement gives to each teacher
tbp opportunity to be present and take
part in the exercises of department
In which he is most interested or desires
A paper on Upper Schools, by Dr. Me-
Cosh, of Princeton College, elicited con
siderable discussion, and was fail of prac-
thought. The Dr. pleads for
the fostering of Higher Schools, that shad
form the connecting link between the
Common School and the College proper.
One of the sharpest papers that 1 heard
in the Normal Department, and one
which was severely handled and as ably
defended, was read by. Miss Delia La
throp, Principal of the Training School
at Cipmobati; subject, Training School—
tbelr place in Normal School work. She
plead earnestly for more distinctive pro
fessional training, on the part of the
schools, and less attention 'to the study of
the branches to be taught, claiming that
the candidates for these Normal Schools
should be required to pass rigid examina
tions in these branches before admitted to
the} Training School.
Dr. Wickersbam, Superintendent of the
of PennsUcania. addressed the
/Association at different times, and is al
ways happy ia his remarks. Prof. Atkin
son, of the Institute of Technology of
Boston, Mass., read a paper on “A Liber
ral Education for the Nineteenth Centu
ry,” in which he look ultra ground against
the study of the Classics, hut failed to
carry the Association with him. The
view in which the most strenuous admir
ers of the Classics harmonize is that their
study should be used as one of the means
for securing a liberal education. The
Prof, is one of the finest speakers in the
The first morning utter I reached here
slopping at the Ralbban House, the wail-’
er seated me at the head of the then near
jy empty table. Soon he seated on my
right the Superintendent _of Education
from Loui i ma, and on tny left Prof.
Langston, of Howard University, Wash
ington, D. C., both colored, yet intelligent
and, 1 may add, accomplished. The lat
ter Is a graduate of Obeil n, and is the
first colored lawyer admitted l<> practice
in the Supreme Court of the United
Hon. J. C. Gebbs, a very dark negro.
Superintendent of Education ia Florida,
read an interesting paper on the “Caus- 1
of Education in the South.” These col
ored men were as warmly received and as
highly honored as any men of the same
culture, and occupying the same pub ir
and responsible n >silions, and why not?
All speak hopefully of the South because
of the interest taken in the cause of edu
lion. Horatio Seymour, one of the pur
est and noblest and accomplished penile
men of the Empire State, accidentally in
town, addressed the Convention yester
day in a very happy mariner, and whs
warmly rec« ived Rev. Titos. h. Beech
er, younger brother of Henry Ward, and
“a chip oft the same hl-ick,” is pastor •'*
a flourishing church m fl.ir place. He
was called nut for gome remarks last eve
ning, and responded in a very earnest and I
impressive manner. He was a teacher
for five years, i Sunday evenings he
preaches in the Opera House sin the win
ter, and in the afternoon at this season, in
o-Eldredge’s Park. He draws the crowd,
whereupon some ot the conserva f ive min
isters who hi Hove in saving people onlv
i i accordance with prescribed methods,
proper to make violent attacks on
| him, especially one Knox, not John, h 8
been giving some heavy knock# on the
pi irate character of Dr. Bldridge, who,
fosootb, is not a church member, bat has
spent $309,0)3 on bis park, and throws it
open to the city, and befitted ap a bean*
»itul stand for the ministry, with comfort
able seats for 5003 persons. Ha seeks to
bring the people there at an hour when
here is no service in the churches, and
invites the ministers of all denominations
to preach m them.. Surely every one
possessed of the true spirit of the Great
Teacher will say G *d bless him.
The Dr., who is s*id to have been in
the old Brie Ring with Gml 1 and Pish;
bus added 200 acres to this park, making
400 in all, which he is going to fit up in
the best style and preseat it to the city;
This is a beautiful town situated ou the
Chemung river,~a branch of the Basque
banns, and contains about 20,000 inbab
Hants. It has not been my privilege to
visit a town more “beau’iful for situa-
tion” in respect of extent or expansion
and beautiful drives tbau this one, about
tea miles from the Pennsylvania Hoe.
The ci'izens have vied with each other to
render the stsiy of the Convention pleas
ant, while the local committee, with the
Mayor at its bead, has proved very effi
The results of the Convention cannot
fail to be widely beneficial. E locators
will go down from this place, having
listened to sturdy thoughts on their call
ing, and many a teacher will be lifted out
m| the “rot” into which he had uncon-
sciously Mien. The cause of popular
education was never of more importance,
nor was it ever dearer to the great Amer
ican people. May God speed the day
when broader views shall be entertained
and when everywhere there shall be found
the disposition to foster with a liberal
hand our educational institutions, the
conservators of our liberties, and the
sorest means of elevating and blessing
the race. Yours,
R. T. Taylor.
