EVENING STAR. > Local Intelligence. A n*N*ns .MK Pai:tino (iirr?We had the ploasure of witnessing on Tuesday evening at ihe Library Hall of the Columbia Fire Compa nr, i very beautiful andinterestingceremony, it consisted of the presentation to that exsellent and popular company. by their esteemed ben efactress. Mrs. 1". II l'>:ndleton, cf a series, (four in cumber) of very handsome er graving? elegantly framed, portraying exciting scenes in the' Lifecf a Fireman." The offering was intended ax a parting gift?the generou* donor bring about to bid adicn to the brght and endearing scenes of home to sojourn for a "ori^f season ia soma of the gay aa-1 interesting cap itals of the Old World, 1 he presentation w.*9 accompanied by a very beautiful and ploasirg impromptu address, in the course of which the amiable sneaker express I the warmest fsntiments ef friendship for the company, dwelling, iueloquentTertBs cf cottucerdali -n. upon its high character, and encouraging the members in their philanthropic causo, by word.* ef kindness, gcntlene-3 ftnd twec'ners. Cap* Tait accepted the beautiful prcsjnt on behalf of the Company, expressing their end his luost ferven. wishes that the t >urof their esteemed patrcnesj might proro to bo ono of unalloyed delight ard | leo uro. and that the would soon return to *ladlenthe he*rf< and meet the cordial welcotn? cf thoso to whom she had ever bter.a guiding star. Capt. Tait olosed his neat mi appropriate address, by calling on Mr T. MeNV-hany to express more felly the sentiments < 1 he cump.tny. Mr. MeN responded to the cr.ll. and in tho course of his address remarked that though, in other f*ir and snnny climes beyond the rolling deep, ?heir f*ir benefactress wouidsee mcch to gratify the eye ard please the fancy ? though she wonld linger with delight amid scenery tho most beautitul and rtmantic. and Cjoteiuplatc with emotions o: j >v some >n the grandest works of Nature and of Art?yet he was sure that her thoughts would often g<> back, on the wings of inomory, to the brignt, and glorious land she had left behind?to the sweet home of her childhood and maturer years?to the picturesque and happy scenes cf Capitol liill?*o the familiar and favored II all of the Colombia! lie closed wit a the expression of the hope that her pathway, while abroad, might be strewn with ll^wcrs ? that bright skies might be ever above her, and true hearti always aruund her After these interesting cercmonies the fair donor was complimented by a splendid sere nade. composed of vocal and instrumental music, gotten up by tho grateiul members of the Columbia We had aimsst forgotten to mention that Mr. Grencup favore ! the company at the Ila'I with several delightful soegs, executed in a j. Biirable style. Rcgbt AcADc:rr ?The Hoard cf Alderman at their la?t meeting did cct finally act on tho bill of the lower Hoard. for the purchase of this property fcr public school parpowes. which measure is ba?ed on the recommendation of the Trustees cf the Public Schools. It was submitted to the Eoa-d cf Alderman, a week before their udj lurnment. ftsd accidentally was not referred to the Ccinmtttce on Schools On being reached at their lost moeting, it was ef course so referred. Mr Iieed, cn Monday cven-ng last, called the attention of the Eonrd to the fact (previous ly unknown to us) that tho privilege wairh the Corporation had of purchasing the academy was limited to the 24th ias; A note wjs also reaj from the Secretary of tho Tru3 ces of Public Schools, requesting the President to restate to ti*s Boar.i what he had mentioned at the mee'.iag on the 19th inst, namely, that tLo refusal of the propsrty to the cit/ was limited to the 2tth. and alio *hat another p-*r'y in be half cf several indiviiew, fcad obtained the refusal cf the property at $lb.50O from tho 21th to the 2d pros , and a!so that it had been stated in the daily newspapers that asocnait tee had been appointed to wait on Mr Mori*on, with proposal Cor the purchs-e cf the proper* ty for a Me'hodist Onllese. Tha L'a jrd, how ever. adjourned without*actic;; on the subject. We trust that tho Board of Ald.irui?a wiil legislate cn this subject with daa caatit?a. The sum 'hat wiil be required to pay for this property is quite larga ; 'and. though we have great respeat for the judgment or the School Tnutees. we hear so many of our fei!or*oiti sens advocate the plan of using ihe money to build two or mora tchool house* of mods.'t dimenstms aad preu>uaiont>. in d.ffsrent farts of the district to be supplied by the pr-poscd purchase as to ineline us s'rooglyu* ibe opin ion that due caution should le exercise* in this matter. Even though other parties may bare the refusal of tue property, for some tisie. at $1G 500. it does net strike us u* being likely that the corporation will be deprived of another chan^a at it, if, after examination atid reflection, it shall be uiiie apparent that the investment is the be t tha: ean be made under all the circumstances of the ca-e. Abbital ExraaosDiNAar ? Yeotarday no le<i than eight org m-grinders, bringing with them their instramcnts, arrived in this city, by the railroad cars It was a mvel sight to ?ce tLem, ens after another receiving their instruments from tho baggage mi-ter. and slinging <hex across their baoks, and hurrying away in various di recti)cs. In the course of five tuinu'es, ? unj ning locking dark-eyed little fellow, wearing a SDustsohe and a blue jacket, had '-grnun* out'' several tune3 and received afewcen*?in exchange for his music Owing trt tho arrival of th<-3e orgmirts, the <-ity was s>oa checrcd with that description of malocy.
