From tho tlmo of tho Baltimore Con

havotaked a bold nnd outspoken posi

I stood by, defended and supported him.

mo that your correspondent does not
fully appreciate tho responsibilities de
volving upon Its devotees. Hut wo will
not bo too forward in presenting our ob
jections thus, since wo Judgo merely
from worth, not from actions,, which
havo not come directly beneath our no
tice. Hut tho general rule, nccordlng to
nature's laws, gives Individuals of ,tho
masculine gender, a moro limited field
than tho other sex. Tho superiority of
tho latter for teachers is Indisputable ;
an established fact, which nono but nn
Idiot will attempt to deny ; slnco God
hns endowed them with those qualifica
tions best adapted to teach "tho young
Ideas how to shoot." Tho gentleman
speaks of political warfare, and party
faction. It is an established fact that
politics are out of order In a Hoard of
Directors, and that capability Is tho cri
terion by which teachers aro selected.
It is often tho caso, however, that such
porsoual matters arc mado the basis of
appointments, but that docs not alter
the question of succiM witli tho teacher.
That lucky Individual has nothing to do
with tho manner in which tho school
has been obtained for him, provided ho
is honorably awarded It by tho Board.
Ho Is now In tho school, nud success de
pends on himself. Forn certain period
nf tlmo it is his field of action, and
should occupy his attention to tho far
thest limit of duty. There is no doubt,
of courso, If, like Napoleon, bo bellows
In himself, and wills It so. "Will It
pay?" our friend nsks further. It is
well always to count tho cost beforo en
terlng upon any new undertaking, nnd
if, pecuninrily, or otherwise, it will bo
a loss, better then not run tho risk,
Hut, a profession so responsible as that
of a "peduyogue" should novcr bo sub
jeeted to n query nt onca so doubtful nnd
insincere. Tho school law asserts that
naught but Immorality, incapacity, or
negligence, nro sufficient grounds for tho
dismissal of a teacher. Some aro so de
ceived in themselves, orso Inflated with
conceit, that they deem themselves ca
pablo of holding such a position, when,
intrinsically, they lack every necessary
qualification, nud, therefore, fail In tho
despcruto attempt ; but such nro unfor
tunate, and command out pity, notour
censure. As for Immoral or negligent
teachers, such aro n crying disgrnco to n
civilized community, and should not bo
tolerated. And nono can deny that fe
male teachers nro superior, naturally
to those of tho other sox in theso mat
ters, sinco thoy find no attraction in tho
rioters, who sink themselves bolow tho
lovel of common humanity, by their
indecent nnd sinful carousals. Some
small minds Intimate to their compan
ions in intellect, that women, asnclass,
can teach but poorly, and but tho sim
plest rudiments. We do not feel any
egotistical flashes when wo assume that
l;i circles, and among minds of a com
prehensive order, tho opposite idea is
indulged, nnd women nro awarded their
The gentleman again implies that it is
rather lowering tho standard of tho pro
fession to nso it ns astopplng stone; and
wo agreo with him in thinking It a
very common thing; but tho law of
progression is unaltorablo, nor would
wo havo It otherwise. Many young
men gain a livelihood by teaching, bo
cause their hours nro limited, and moro
time is given to dovoto toother pursuits
which they hopo to follow when thoy
hnvo conveniently used tho schoolroom
annnald for a certain period; others
tench ror awliilo to obtain funds to pros-
ecuto their scholarly attainments in n
wider sphere. This, however, Is no ob
jection, provided they attend to their
duty conscientiously. It Is eminently
pralswortliy, Education is no mean at
tribute to n man's ndvantuges ; and our
best citizens nro tho self-tnndo ones. But
I assert that women" aro herein superior,
slnco most of them enter upon their la
bors with no future aim, save tho per
formance of their duty, and tho ulti
mate Improvement of their pupils.
Women aro pot expected to bo lawyers,
or politicians, nnd havo no prospect of
becoming anything but good teucliers,
and can therefore alford to devotonll
their time, Ingenuity, and ability to tho
cause. omen nro not often renegades,
and will seldom stoop from the dignity
attendant on their sphere, to visit nnd
"plaster" tho Directors with promises,

complimentary to tho able bodies of

Districts, to Inslnuato thatj thoyTcan bo

led by all selentlilo observers to bo tho most tltu-cl
Uevlco for gathering clover seed yet discovered,
A meio glanco at it Is suillclenl to convince ti

It strips tho clover head fiom tho stalk leavmi
the straw standing 111011 tho ground. It Is easily
drawn by one hoise, and requires but one man 'I
boy to work it.
It is compact, simple lusttucturo, and not lia
ble to get out of order, ami can bo cheaply got up
Tho great ndvantago in this machlno is, uf

length of limennd lalwu of mowing, handling nita
