MR. EDITOR: -- I feel that it is due the Memphis Conference that there should be some statement in the ADVOCATE respecting the prosperity of McKenzie College. Its extraordinary success during the past year has been very gratifying to its friends, and has inspired confidence in all. The recent closing exercises showed that the principals had done honest, thorough work. The examinations were rigid, and were conducted in such a way that no student could pass who did not thoroughly understand what he had gone over. The local members of the Board have taken pains to examine the methods of teaching and governing, and express their unqualified satisfaction and approval. The teachers go upon the principle that there is not so much in the amount a student parses over as in the way he studies it The rules of discipline laid down in the catalogue are strictly enforced, and all students are kept under wholesome moral influences. There were about one hundred pupils in regular attendance during the last term of the past session. They were unusually diligent in their studies, and orderly in their deportment; and most of them will show their appreciation of the school by returning this fall. There are a number of young men in the College who are preparing for the Vanderbilt University, and we hope, erelong, to send up representatives who will do us credit in that noble institution.

Rev. H. M. Sears, who conducted the Young Ladies Boarding department so successfully last year, will continue with us. It is needless for me to give assurance to parents that their daughters will be tenderly cared for while under his charge.

The Board are gratified to be able to say to the patrons and friends of the College, that the Rev. E. B. Chappell, who is a member of our Conference, has given entire satisfaction, and has so worked himself into the esteem and confidence of the pupils and friends of the institution, that the Board regard him as almost indispensable. He has identified himself with the destinies of the College, and will remain with us.

Professor Granville Goodloe, son of Rev. A. T. Goodloe, of the Tennessee Conference, has been recently elected by the Board of Trust a joint-principal, and will hereafter be Professor Chappell's co-laborer. We feel that this makes our assurance of success doubly sure. Prof. Goodloe was for three years a pupil of the Messrs. Webb, of Culleoka and, to use their own words, “He was faithful and diligent in his studies, and preeminent in scholarship.” He afterward graduated with honor at Vanderbilt University, as Master of Arts, and is highly recommended by Bishop McTyeire, Dr. Young, and the members of the Faculty. The Messrs. Webb, whom he assisted in their school for one term, say: “He exhibited, as a teacher, that gentle firmness that always succeeds, and his classes made unusually fine progress.”

Mrs. Sophia A. Travig, one of the most successful and popular teachers in West Tennessee, will have charge of the Preparatory department.

Mrs. E. B. Chappell, who has been thoroughly trained in the Beethoven Conservatory, St. Louis, and has taught during the last three years in the leading Methodist College in the St. Louis Conference, will conduct the Music department.

The building will be thoroughly repaired and refurnished during the summer, so that every thing may be neat and comfortable. These advantages, together with the healthfulness of the locality, warrant us in predicting for the College abundant success.

The next session opens Sept. 1, and we look for a liberal patronage from our brethren. Respectfully, N. J. CALDWELL,

President of Board.

McKenzie, Tenn., July 21, 1880.
