Washington, 218 thn "base of sup.
plies," to the immense Army of the
Potomac, furnishes many glimpses that
convey some impreSsion of the magni
tude of the job, as some term it, of
carrying-on the war. The phases of'
the times arc a study, and often amid
the crushing turmoil that marks this
ago of contliet, one finds things pleas
ant to look into, as showing that the
ill wind of war blows good in soap a
its eddies.
The streets, urowded with busy
forms, aro an entertainment, for more
leisure hours' than we bin Often spare.
The picturesque abounds to an eye
trained to the monotonous current that
fills the streets of other cities; striking
scenes attract constant attention, and
awake thollglitS that are hardly arous
ed by merely reading of the war. The
long trains of 8111 btII:I9I.WS, that yrter
an engagement wind through the ave
nues, carrying the ktifferin;: from the
trains to the hospitals, send to the
heart a thrill of pity, that ends in a
prayer for peace. -
Tho trains of artillery that thunder
at full speed over the stones, stir the
heart to a quicker boating, and the
fierce animal sensation of active cour
age .carries the mind to the battle-field,
arousing sympathy with those who
storm again and again linos of fire and
Prom the ponderous, slow-moving
wagons conveying supplies, drawn by
patient,•long enduring draught horses,
OHO is impressed with a proud con
sciousness of the profusion that loads
and reloads these seemingly endless
processions with their burdens of mu•
unions of war, and alloy pro\•isions
and comforts.
The space not occupied by these
more conspicuous objects, is full of
spirited forms. Horse/non dash here
and there; officers with gaily lined
capes, followed by well mounted . or
derlies, gallop by - , side and side with
the contraband who caries his all in
doubtful ter.ure on his back. Ladies
riding boldly, hurry timid pedestrians
on the crossings, and boys catching
the spirit, carry - apprehension to all
well regulated minds.
The horse that takes his grain from
It 1)811'd-head, and puts back his cars
at all passers-by, is V. more Inlet pie

This well kept look . of these beasts
is very notieaffie here, and the strength'
that next to steam aids man, seems
guarded and rewarded with care.
By the kindness of Capt. Tompkins,
a member of one of the New York
hostorical families, we have had an op
portunity of i»specting thoroughly the
system that protects, and economizes
army horses, arid we are delighted, as
well as surprisod, this i11111)00$0
branch of army care.
To give some idea of the extent of
the corrales and horse hospitals in this
city,.wo will commence with some sta
tistics to show the capacity demanded
fu the protection of horses in govern
ment use in the vicinity, and for the
rest and cure of those that are disabled
by hard service. The number of hor
nes for which preparations aro com
plete, is thirty thousand. the force of
men required to manage them, includ
ing ambu la rice and team drivers, smiths
and workmen, is about fourteen thou
sand, a body larger than the United
States army three years ago ; and the
monthly expenditures about two mil
lions of dollars. All this huge business
is reduced to a system under the Man
agement of Captain Tompkins, and it
is one that is accomplishing great re
sults in ninny ways.
We will, if the reader will follow us,
carry hint through, as well as we may,
these stables, that old Hercules would
have despaired of keeping in or!./er.----
Landing from a comfortable ambu
lance, drawn by two of Uncle Sam's
army horses, a pair of beautiful bays,
in front of one of these stables, we go
in a door, opened by a guard, and find
ourselves in the medicine rooms. On
shelves, as at a druggists, in perfect
order, stands rows of bottles, jars and
cases, that contain the remedies for all
the diseases of horses. The care evi
dent, shows that wr mg prescriptions
aro unknown, and one would not mind
trusting health to the skill that is so
apparent. From this office eve go in
to a yard, surrounded by rows of long
low buildings. Some aro the stables,
some are sheds that shelter wagons
and ambulanees.
The construction - of these hastily
erected 'buildings is admirable. The
plans are simplo, but every requisite ;
is secured, while no piece of timber
is unnecessarily used. The outside
walls form the heads of the stalls, the
braces that support the rooPt make the
divisions between them, while
. the high
space under the roof is clear, to per
fectly ventilate the whole. The floors
aro made by mixing limo wi,th the soli,
and aro white, firm, but elastic), and
absorb moistaro readily. They aro
kept clean to a nicety, so clean, indeed,
that a Congressman would hesitate
before spitting on them.

thinking, if horses meditate, that their
coltish days were happy ones, when
they }licked up their heels in Northern
meadows. From them they are led
to a central place, where by forcible
but kind means, medicines aro given,
and where they are waslied and clear
ed from parasites. This and a walk
to the water trough is the amount of
the exercise of these invalid beaSts.
All the di,ciplino shows the military
training infused by the superintending
officer. His quick eye detects instant
ly any deviation from regularity and
order, and such orders as "Pick up
that broom, man," "Take up that hay
from the floor," &c., were not often
needed, Am rarely is anything out of
Tito capacity of the larger stables is
four thousand horses each, requiring,
of course, a large range of buildings.
In addition, where ambulances are
kept, sheds aril mado for the better
classes of th,ml, while long rows of
those less worthy of' care stand in or•

Tho employees at each 13 tablo live
in the place. A house for the purpose
has a dining-room and kitchen where
the men are comfortably fed. Anoth

to a certain extent, as guard-houses
and other little military fixtures show.
All these thing:4, and many unmen
tioned, form a stable, with oyery con
nection perfect, and one feels that they
are merciful men, who show so much
mercy to their beasts.
From one lumens!) establishment
we go to another, all similar, but at
each something new strikes our at
tention. At ono we see a fine steam
fire-engine, and learn that there are
three of thesei -stationed to protect
these buildings from fire, sided by wa
ter buckets constantly full, and axes
always ready.
At another wo find 4 NM of mills,
twelve run of 60110 each, driven by
eight horses, and tended by a lot of
contrabands, all whirling away, grind
ing corn and oats, and cutting hay, to
prevent waste. Again we see arrange
ments for branding horses and mules,
where a row of three are shut up so
ingeniously thatthey cannot kick each
other, or aiQ, Cling else.
Prom all this we turn to a shop.
where a busy sound of hammers fills
our ears, an pdor of burnt horn comes
to our smell, and smoke dims our eyes.
Peering through the latter wo Elea a
long row •of torges surrounded by
smiths, half visible by the dim day
light, aided by the glow of the tuna
cos. Above them hang hundreds of
horseshoes, strung as housewives string
apples to dry, from which they are lte•
lug token to be fitted to the horses that
stand in long rows tied to ropes.
A fancier of horse physiognomy
would study with delight the row of
hoods that hang over the ropo. Old
stagers look sleepy while shoes aro be
ing nailed to their hoofs; thorough
breds show some nervous feelings, but
are to brace to yield to the uneasiness
that renders so restless the colt that is
strtiggling against iris first salt of iron
Passing between these• handsome

wagon surgeons, and come out for ac

The Teacher's Authority, Outside of
the School Room.
In a former issue of our monthly,
"an afflicted teacher" propounded the
following questions: .
1. "Does the teacher have charge
of the children from the time they
btart in the !Doming till they reach
home at ni g ht 7"
2. "If they quarrel on the way to
and from school and persuasion thils,
who shall correct them•?"
3. "Suppose the little ones, by per
mission of parents, get dismissed half
an hour before the close of the school,
who then shall have authority over
them on their way home? - the
case be any different from what it
would be, if they remained till 4 o'-
clock? I ask for myself and several
other afflicted ones. We want to know
oar duty, and then are willing to do
Thoso questions involve one of th - p
most important and difficult points in
school management.
Tho "Jaw of tho State, that Is the
Statute Law, throws no light on the
subject. Indeed the Statute does not
so much as define the length of the
school day; so that by that law the
toucher does not know when "his day
is done." Many such matters aro de
cidod by general usago, or special a
greement, or the order of the agent or
committee having jurisdiction in the
premises. The principles of tho "Com
mon Law," and the decisions of the
courts upon special cases tried hoforo
thorn, coustitnte our guide in such mat
Ono of the oldest and beet establish
ed principles of the common law, is,
that the teacher stands fit loco parentis
and for the time being is invested with
the parent's authority. Thus, while
he is in school, the child is lawfully un
der the teacher's control, and is not
subject to any petty interference of
parents, Hero, as elsewhere, however
the courts, interpreting the common
law, are governed by what seems rea
sonable in the promises. A parent, for
good moon ; would doubtless bo justi
fied in requiring the child to leave the
school room even against the orders
of the teacher, and the courts are com
petent to decide between them. This
point, however, the nature, of the tea
cher's authority in the school room, not
being raised by our "afflicted" friend,
we pass to the point of greater diffi
culty, viz: Does the teacher's authority
extend beyond the school room, and if so,
how lar Here, too, the principle.of
reasonableness is to be consulted. Is it
riot reasonable that the teacher should
interest himself for the welfare of his
pupils when they aro outside the
school room ? When they aro in the
neighborhood of the school room, com
ing or going or pia% ng around' the
door at recess, or within a reasonable
distance of the school ro o m , ; it, nny
other time or place, does not tire Pa
rent expect and desire that the teacher
should hcye r> watchfid care over the
child ? Is it not a reasonable' expee-,
Lotion ? ktid if it is reasonable that
the timelier should exercise such a RI:
porvision of the children, in behalf of
the parents, is there not. a reasonable
ness, nay, evbn a ne&.ssity.thatllle tea
cher be invested with authority to the ,
same extent? And if authority is
given him to take care of the children
so far as he can, even when beyond
the school premises, then ho must
have authority to restrain and punish
if need be. In a word, while a teach
or, guided by his OWn sense of duty
and a regard to the wishes of the 'pa
rents, seeks to exercise the wisest and
kindest control over his pupils, ho
must be invested with a corresponding
But our questioner [tilts whether the
teacher has rightful charge of the chil
dren '-from the time they start, until
they reach home." Let us apply the
principle of reasonableness again. The
parent is not less interested in the care
of the child than is the teacher, and
must be supposed to know more of the
child's conduct when near home, than
the teacher can know. When, there
fore the child comes within the, pres
ence, or near to the premises of the
parent, he naturally passes from the
control of the teacher to 'that of • the
But again, there may bo more or
loss of the way in which the child is
under the immediate eye of neither,
parent nor teacher. What then Is
there such wiring as a joint interest
and a joint control, a control not con
fined to one party or the other? This
seems to bo the reasonable understan
ding. As idust be the ease with the
father and mother - in the management
of their children in the family, so as
between teacher and parent, there
may- be a joint jurisdiction.
Either party or both may, with pro.
priety, watch over, restrain, or punish
the pupil, as the nature of the case
may demand, It is not always clear
in which party the major authority
resides. But if one party has taken
any matter in band to' investigate, or
discipline, thceothor party may wisely
