KVt.'NIN<; STAR. Local Intelligence. School o? Dssio* ?The closing exercises of the winter term of the Metropolitan Me ebonies' Sohool of Art and Design took placs em Friday evening An appropriate addraui vu delivered by Prof. Whitaker, the prinoi pal of the school Ho Ant spoke of his own relation to th< sohool, of the unusual interest manifested bj tbo vtpils, and said that, although the nam her in attendanee had been less than the pro eoding winter term, yet the result of their bors had been of a highly satisfactory an<i pleasing character, displaying, in many tu< stances, a rapid advancement in individuals who, hitherto, had knows little or nothing of art. lie next spoke o( the relation existing be. tween Scionce and Art, and showed the de pendenoe of one upon the other; said that al though Science may make deep ressarches may develope many hidden mysteries, maj disoover new truths, yet when she wishes te delineate theee facts, sho must eall to her aid the manipulations of Art; whether it be tb? geologist describing the struotnre of the earth, the machinist exhibiting his skill in meohan lsm, or the astronomer with his far-seeing eye stretching outward through infinite space. On the other hand, Art is dependent upon Science for mueh of her sucoess, as in the preparation of eolor by the chemist, and in the manufac ture of suitable instruments to perform her labor with. In short, they are twin-ohildren, bora of the same parent, and essential to each other's growth and development. In speiaking of the past and present of Art, and of the enthusiasm manifested for works of ancient times, he said that the productions of that period were not adapted to the wants of the present age; inasmuch as we live under a different government, and in widely different oircumstance?; that they had their use, per formed their mission and ehonld be rather our study than subjects for imitation. Then, art was was for the few?the aristocratic portion of the community and the artists were few also, confined to men of ran genius only. For modern times, and for this country, it most be for the people and thoroughly demooratio in tuehareeter. To us, as a people, It is neces sary in every department of life We need it in the workshop, in the manufactories, in our plaoes of worship, in our halls of legislation, and especially in our homes. Hew much more valuable become even the commonest things of use, when art, with her magic wand, invests them with bith beauty and eleganoe How mueh more delightful and happy are those homes which teem with works or art. How powerful the influence of some quiet scene, perhaps, of the home of our childhood, to quell the fury of passion and soothe the disturbed spirit. Who oan estimate the influence the picture of some dear departed friend may ex art over our minds and hearts, reminding as of happier scenes and happier days. Ho was not afraid of makin ; art too common Let the people be edueated in it, let it enter the school-room and become a regular branch of study, and the tastes of the people will be a roved, and the artist will find sympathy support. He may be obliged to make greater proficiency, because tho tastes of tho people will demand it; but his works will be appreciated, and himself become great and noble through his effort He thou closed by urging upon all a more careful attention to the elements of art, and to a greater proficiency in their calling rathei than to a desire to produce great pictures, whioh only few might possess. Among the geniuses of the present time he most happily alluded to Clark Mills as an example of what may bo done by genius and perseverance com bined. He was a man in humble life, a me ?hanio by profession, stepping forth from hi* obscure position and solving for the world the long-contested problem, whether a self-sup porting statue might not be made. This ii bet one example of what may be done by America, with her wonderful power of inven tion, her indomitable verseveranoe, her exten sive country with its sublime and varied scenery and almost unlimited resources. After the lecture, a distribution of awards from the principal took place. Specimens ol the work of the pupils were exhibited in va rious parts of the room, and certainly told well fer the sohool; and we -vere heartiiy glad to see some notice taken ef these truly merit orious productions To Miss Lydia Kesley, for water oolor paint ings, was awarded Canova's Graoee Master John Key, for drawings from the model; Ra phael's Head of Christ.

There was, as it happened other pending indictments lor the same offence, in one of which so remaining another jury bad been sworn this morning The Court concluded by directing tho name of the said William Wise to be stricken from the list of petit jurors for the remainder of the term."
