Slater has written a letter relative to the character and extent of the clerical work of kis office, and expressing the opinion that at present he deems any and all attempts at retrenchment bv the reduction of the clerical force of his otace, or the diminution of its present standard of excellence and competency, to be perfectly futile. He suggests, as the laws regulating the enforcement ot the collection of tke revenue by sales of property for taxes, and Sot .ding for the purchase of such property by e Controller Ui all cases where there are no other purchasers, are inadequate, impracti cable, ami to some extent inoperative; that certificates be Issued annually for the amount due for unpaid taxes upon each ?eparate piece of property, with a jonaity attach- d, awl tear ing interest, for two years, when the property unredeemed may be sold at the request of the bolder ot the certificate, the Mine as under a deed ef trust, thus embling the government to at on<*e at the end ot eaeh vear the entire revenue from the taxes lev is*! for the year. Tbe collector suggests that it would be economy for the government to employ, in addition to the present permanent force of his office, two or three peiman^nt cam{>etent clerks, to be employed alternately as needed ia hisrMceand that of the superintendent of a*pcs*BM.-nt?. ? ?

I be Normal and Illirb School Qac*. tions. E-Ut,.r of Iks Star: Highly appreciating the Intelligent interest in the welfare oi our public leboo's evei manifested by vour paper, 1 ask the space necessary to permit me to point out what appears to me a fallacy in ysur brief argument against tho establishment of a high or normal school. Vou cay "the work needed is really at the base of the structure: the primary schools," and refer to the opinion of those who ?? advocate the selection of the most capable and most experi enced teachers for those schools." For precisely that rcaaon the establishment of I normal school is urged, lu order to have the ?e*t teachers, we must educate them for their profession. Experience comes only from prac tice; and the most valuable experience from practice underthe most skillful superintendence. How are the teachers of primary schools to icquire experience? Not by first learning in he higher grade, for the processes employed In he latter are very different from those which ead to success in the former. Those who would iccomplisb much with the youngest pupils thould devote their energies to this particular vork from the start; and that their early labors nay not prove failures, they must commence tith correct metho<ls. A normal, or more itnctly a training school is necessary to teach hem these methods and enable them, be lore nterlng on otherwise untried duties, to prac ice ui.der tbe direction of a skillful super ior, who can suggest the right aud correct the rroag. I would not disparage the primary teachers >f our city. They deserve all credit for their liligent efforts and their readiness to receive n tiuction. Yet, to a great extent, they must "'gin bv groping in the dark, and must devote heir early labors to almost exclusively tentative ?rocesses. They have had little or no opj>or unty of becoming acquainted with the im proved methods of teaching which the past few 'ears have originated, and must rely upon their >wn crude ideas, instead of the systems that iave grown from the mature experience of .thers, and their efficiency is limited by their nexperience and consequent Ignorance. Now, a training school Is needed to supply the issistance which our young teachers need to lit hem for tbe most successful discharge of their luties. It would enable them to receive in duction in the theories of teaching and gov rning, and in connection therewith afford prac ice in applying these theories under the watch ful oversight of an experienced preceptor. The expense of conducting such a school would ?ot exceed 92,000 per annum, while the cotme luent withdrawal from the grammar schools ?r those who remain there to wait for positions is teachers would make room for promotions, bus making vacancies in the intermediates, to >e filled by those now kept out by insufficient ic com mod at Ions. The experience of other cities ?rove that by establishing a training school the fficiency of the primary teachers is increased nore than 25 per cent.; indeed, it is claimed hat not less than 30 per cent, more is accom plished in unfolding?not simply cramming he minds of the pupus. The salaries paid to the sixty-one primary eachers of this city amount to S&.000 annually. ?oes not true economy demand that the value if tbe product be so greatly increased, if it can >e by so slight an addition to the outlay as rould be the cost of a training school ? As to the ett'ect of a high school upon the ower schools, let me quote from tbe last report if the superintendent of the St. Louis schools, dr. Wm. T. Harris, one of the best practical *1 ucators, aa well as one of the most accom plished scholars In this countrySome hold hat a democracy should undertake to provide inly an inferior sort of education, and exclude ill higher courses of study aa being only for hoee who are w ealthy enougb to pay for the ?me. Free schools held strictly to this prin ciple become 'ragged schools,' and it soon >ecomts the practice of all people who c in af ord It to send their children to ? pay sc .iool ' }y this arrangement the distinctive advantages if oar public school svstem would be lost." Is not this in a great measure the fact in this ity? He says furtherUnless a single tandard of measurement la furnished by which he work of the lower schools is measured and r?*lat<d. a city cannot be said to have anv hfng like i ?v?tem. The annual expense of he high school djpfirtBWnt (of 8t Loils) Is, ierhaps, ten per cent, ot the ?uUro ftDWllut ex tended for the whole system. Its effect id I"*' ?roving the value of the work done In the lower ;rades must be reckoned at three times its ac ual coat If one were to compensate for the rant of a high school at the head of a >ystem if schools, he would Cad it necessary to pav oat n increased salaries and other appliance* at east three times as much much money as a ugh school would cost." "If a community does tot educate its own directive power, it must mport it, and pay a high premium for it/' or, te might have added, suffer from the want i it To a very great extent these remarks are rue, even as applied to as modest and lnexpen ?ve an addition to our system as the proposed Normal Schools.

The marshal explained to him that the law makes no provision for pay of witnesses in the Police Conrt when the tines and costs are not paid by defendants If the facts are as stated by Mr. Yoaag, it looks like a small business to dcrtuct pay when the carrier was absent attending to a case in whirl) he was assaulted in the performance of his official duties.
