I- v f NING STAR. Local Intelligence. Tai Prauc Sciools ?At the monthly meeting of the Board of Public Schools yes terday afternoon, the committee heretofj-e ,prointed to. examine the applicants for teazh tri reported the following naUM of persons who ia:isf*Ctorily answered the thirty fcai questions propounded to them; Mary A Mi nek, Ellen E. Janney, A. V. Bates, Maroia J. Baker. Lava R. Hilton, Frances E Hoover, Elisa T Ward Kllen L. Hawkins, Lacy Ellen Moore, Mary A Brash, Elisabeth Ellen Ash down. Rachel A. Adams, Henry Henshaw, Mtasie Turpi n, and Annie V. Shaw Font other* failed to answer' all ths questions, in cluding thoae on tha aubjest of teashing, spell lag, reading, geography, history, arithmetic, composition, a*d parsing, ths lssson in the last csss being as follows; * " Thus, with the year, j?easons return ; but not to me returns _ Day, aor the iwwt approach of even or morn, Nor tight of vernal bloom, nor summer's rose " Tha names of those who passed the exami b at ion altogether satisfactorily, are to b* placed on tha reoord, and from whom teaoheri may hereafter be selected. During an incidental debate, tha remark was made, and acquiesced in by tha memben of tha Board, that tha appointment of teachers should always ha made from among the mos' competent for that responsible post; and, fur ther, that the persons recently examined wars far superior to some of thoso now teaehing in the public schools. The lattar should under stand that the position of teacher is not to be held for life. A resolution was adopted to tha effect that I communication be addressed to the Mayor, suggesting that he direct the ward physicians to see to the vaccination of such children as have not been vaccinated, in such districts as the small pox may prevail. Action was taken with a view to providing some of tha schools with suitable furniture and educational facilities Augustus Edson was elected a teacher for the junior department of district school No. 2, and Miss Eliia T. Ward assistant teacher in primary school No. 5, ii the same district. This young lady was eduoated in one of the public schools The following is the summary of teachers' report for the month of February: Whole number of pupils, 1,169; entered, 74; sus peoded. 1; withdrawn, 77; corporeally pun ished, 92; present every school day, 547; waiting admission, 138. of whom 91 are in the third district; average attendance in each sehool in the first district, 42; in second, 49; in third, 50; in fourth, 47. Aggregate of pupils' attendance, in first district, 6 911 days; in second, 6,384; in third, 10,354 ; in fourth, 5,647 ; total, 29,296 ; tetal of pupils' absenoe. 8 377 days, aoie than one fourth of the whole school time thus having been lost In conse quence of sicknees and death in the families of teachers, an unusual amount of time was lost by them : In first district 9days; second 23 days; third. 6 days. Number of visits made by trustees and teachers, 86; the best attendance was made by the pupils of the second district, and the wont by those of the first. In the first district the best attendance was In Miss Middleton'a school; in the sec ond in Mr Wilson's; fourth, in Mr. Thomp son's; and in the third in Miss Moss's; the average attendance of pupils in each being respectively. 24, 50 . 67. and 57; and the time lost, 68, 144. 177, and 244 days. Tw* Ouuak akd re? Moxxur.?Recently a man of small stature was seen slowly trudging along, bending undsr the weight of an organ, which, in the usual fashion, was slung on his back Behind him followed his confederate in business with a monkey under one arm and a stand (for the animal; shut up like a camp stool, under the other. The movements of tho^e itinerant vagabonds were narrowly watched by a score of young sters, who seetred to be in quest of street amusements. To their ?reat delight, the man with the organ reverted the position of the in strument, and his companion erected the stand. After a ' voluntary," a lively tune was played, and, quick as lightning the monkey leaped to his work. There it was, dressed in a scarlet slip, with a cap and feathers, ready for mischief, and prepared to show its learn ing Ob! how ths bystanders rejoiced, and how their eyes sparkled with joy. la every di rection. children, both white and black, were seen running at their utmost speed Soor hundred or more human beings were on ground surrounding the performers, and da. vers ofoarts and hacks reigned up, fascinated. Juveniles, out on "airing" in their nurses' arms, were held forward and aloft, that their little peepers might behold the cunning, di minutive "old man" in the scarlet slip, (with a long black tail banging a half yard below the hem) with a oap and feathers on his ven erable head. A few genteel-looking adult whites walked slowly along, feasting their eyes on the amu sing ?oeno The monkey, it is needless to add, was tha "bright particular star," and, to say the least, a funny monkey it was. The organ man continued to "crank" ma sio as an accompaniment to the superior per form acces of the long tailed animal, which in the course of five or ten minutes, won for it self a reputation for smartness exoeeding that of all his many predecessors oombined. The ring-muter, or trainer's face, was ex travagantly covered with balr and his dsrk eye* flashed with joy a* his pnpil performed the required task *uch as Srst, dancing polka*, next playing with a wbirlagig, and going through "broad sword" exeroises, aad jump ing through a brats boop. Truly wonderful! But before all these things were done, a third perron, the "Barnum" of the concern, passed through the crowd, collecting pennies. In this connection it may be remarked without eur incurring the charge that we reflect on the generosity or the poverty of the spectators, the small change did not seem to be plentiful. Aa if to superinduce a more liberal spirit, the foreign vagabonds caused the monkey to perform other diverting tricks, among them that of firing a pistol! This was, indeed, the crowning act of greatness?in the opinion of the ignorant adults and the juveniles, who ac tu*lly saw the monkey, after examining the Are-arm, pull the trigger ! A bright oooaaion, indeed, it was. But see! the chief of police approaches the man sweat ing and toiling at the orank; he tolls him he is violating tha corporation law, bv obstructing the street, and attracting unlawful assemblies, threatens that if be has to speak to him again on the subject for a similar offence, he will next take him before a magistrate to he com mitted as a vagrant! The organ-man, in bro ken dialect, says he has done no hsrm, and looks sad. The orowd, their attention for the time drawn from the antics of the monkey, wonder what is the matter; and but the sport is, temporarily at least, over. The organ man cloees his trap, and re-slings it on hit hack, his companion shuts up the stand aad effect* in the manner as we first deeeribed them, the adventurers, with elongated viaagu and reluctant strides, take a direction diflb ect from that of the chief of police?the one pro ceeding westward, the other east. The or gan man and the monkey man look back oe ca*ionally. aad aee the form of the ohief re ceding in the distance, until it is lest. The snaoc is new so wiis that music and "rounds of applause" at the monkey's performances eannot reach his unmusical ear. The danger is, for the present, past. The srgan-grinder dumps bis instrument, and the monkey-man spraddles his stand. The mop key, lively a* ever, leep* to the platform of bis former tri umpQa. and re-perform* it* wonderful feat*' Nobody is bow near to molest and make afraid Crowd* gather a* before, and the collection exercises are repeated. But on this ocoasion there ia no pistol firing by the monkey, for the reason that the contributions have not been liberal. These things took place on Satw-dey. The wind blew too high on Monday for out door performances, but on Tuesday morning, the weather pleesint, the adveaturers at the mar ket house square amused hundreds of persons aad without the fear of the captain and hi guard, suffered the monkey to fire the pistol !s This last named act was in violation of a law ?>f the corporation, but we have not beard of an arrest of the offender Decidedly, these performances are popular among ''the million." Of their refining ten dencies, however, we are not at this time pre .pace* to axpeess our opinion, although we Mr* free to admi t that the monkey ia the smart m( and' conningest" animal of his lit* and hind that we have ever behold. { Tu Tatxo* Foae salts?Taylor (Lewis Little page) was teen In Baltimore on Banday< night last, and not on Monday evening, aa we erroneously stated yeeUrday.

The gay young folks of Washington and ? I Georgetown are all agog over the approaching > balls, there having been, for the m^st part, a 11 month's cessation of all snoh amusements in I the istriot of Columbia Judging from the : I numerous inquiries concerning those to come 11 cff on Monday night next, it is very eleax that 11 oar blythe lads and lassas havn't forgot how I to trip it on the light fantastic toe, and are most eager for the sport. There ean be no i doubt that eaeh of the balls to oome off on Monday next will be vary numerously at tended. Everj possible preparation to render I them agreeable has been made by the active I j and attentive gentlemen seiaoted for their I " management So all who ean attend one or I mora of them should by all meant go, and "dance all night till broad daylight, i And go home with the gals in the morning.n Again, lait night, Miss Morant gave I unalloyed pleasure to a fine audience, at Iron I Hall. 44 Ingomar" was much better played I on that occasion than some days sinoe, as the I company had evidently in the meantime mas- | I tered the piece thoroughly Mr. Allen was I repeatedly encored, fairly sharing with Miss I M- the applause of the night. | This evening they play the "Stranger," the I I favorite piaoe, of all plays, in Washington; I so there will doubtless be a orowded house The afterpieoe is the Blue Devils," in which I no one ean oreate more genuine fun than Mr Norton. To-morrow night Miss M. takes a benefit. ? j Ton Hiqhlaxdxrs were out on parade las: night, accompanied by Bergman's brats band. | I They marched through the streets under the command of their eaptein, John Reese. The I corps performed a number of tapid evolutions, I I and so oo'rectly as to gein the applause of m&nr experienced officers who had an oppor- I tunity of seeing them. After the company I had deposited their arms they proceeded to the I El Dorado House, where they passed the time I merrily with the song and glee and an occa sional speech. During the evening the sub- I ject of the Russian war was started, and H E. I Orr, Esq , formerly of the Portsmouth (Va.) Pilot, arose and addressed the oompany upon that subject, giving a very interesting account j of the rise and progresss of the war and its probable oonsequences The entire oompany appeared to be interested in the speech, en deavoring to catch every word that fell from the speaker's lips; and when at two o'clock this morning the oompany dispersed, it was evident that the glorious aocount of the young orator had made an Impression on his au dience. The oompany dispersed in excellent order. ? Compliment art Baairrr.?A number of gentlemen who have witnessed the perform ance of Miss Fanny Marant in Washington, have proffered her the compliment of a benefit, J which will doubtless take plaoe on Saturday night, when she will appear for the last time I Few ladies, coming here as she did?a stran ger?unheralded, would have won themselves mare reputation than this talented young I lady, and we hope that her benefit may prove both complimentary and profitable. j Starlet's Wsstxr* Wilos.?This beauti ful panoramic work of art was exhibited at Odd Fellow's Hall yesterday afternoon, and at night. On the first named oocasion four or five hundred pupils of the public schools were in attendance, and, at the last, there was quite a large of both adults and children. To mor rom afternoon, at half past three o'olock, the juveniles will be again especially accommo dated at that place. Combination against Mayer Wood. We learn from the Jonrnal of Commerce and other New York papers, that on Sunday (?) last $20,000 was raised among the lottery policy dealers, gamblers, and grog-sellers amenable to punishment under the laws, and persons interested in the profits of houses of ill-fame, to be expended in Albany to procure legislation which shall suooessfully prevent Mayor Wood from prosecuting to a triumphant completion the excellent reforms he has in hand. There o<in be no m'stake in the truth of this statement. On all hands we find Mr. Henry J. Raymond pointed out as the man who is relied on by the disreputable parties mentioned above, to oarry their schemes through the legislature. He has long had the reputation of being slippery, and seems to be 1 in a fair way of earning one for being infa mous, on the back of it. Peoria, Illiioit ? In 1-820, a report was made to the Government on the titles to certain classes of anoient settlements in the village of Peoria, embracing in lots" and " out lots." A case arose recently in whioh a party had clahnad before the register of the land offloe of that distriot a two-arpens out-lot there. The act oi Congress confirming these classes of titles recognises a certain class for notexoeed ing 10 acres. The question arose in this case, i whether the party olaiming was entitled sim ply to the two arpens he olaimed, or the max imum mentioned in the law. The Secretary of the Interior has confirmed the Commissioner of the Land Offioe's deci sion, that the party is confirmed only to the extant of the area he claimed, and nothing more. The objeot of the " maximum" provision of the law was only to rest! iot the granting of more than that quantity under any claim? not to secure parties more than they do claim.
