inr i n lggsggggBs EVENING STAR. Local Intelligence. Ubaath or tii City.?Although Washlng ington has enjoyed remarkably good health for several months past, the season has ap proached when cholera morbus and other dls easee usually attendant on summer. may be antieipatad. The utmost care, therefore, should be taken to avoid them- Clean sheets and alleys are not among the least prevsp tives of disease, and disinfecting agents should be freely made use of to promcte or to pre serve the public health. The Set'itt'Jio American oontaina an inter esting article on the subjsctof aunltory sub stancea. and it ia as folio*! : " Aa the warm woatber ia now at hand, It will no doubt be very useful information to many persona to be told what are the best eub stanoes for removing offensive odors from sinks, Ac. Copperas, or aulphate ot iron, in a very exoelleat substance for slushing drains and siok3 By dissolving half a pound of it in a pail of hot water, and throwing i: into a eink once per week, it will keep down all of fensive odor; and from the situations of many houses in all our cities, it would greatly tend to heahh and pleasure for the inhabitant* of eaob to do this The chloride of lime, or the chloride of zinc, will answer just as well, but these are expensive substances, in comparison with copperas (sulphate of iron ) Lime is also very useful, and is no doubt a cheip deodor. iter, but ia not a very good one; copperas, tbere'ore, ia preferable to all these substancaa. But there is another substance which is far superior to either copperas, the obloride of lime, or sine. as a deodoriser, both as it re spects its qualities and ita economy; we mean charooal powder, made of ground wood char coal. Charcoal powder possessed the quality of absorbing ammoniacal, sulphuretted hydro gen, and carbonic acid gtises in a superior de gree to any oiher substance. Placed in the vicinity, or spread among decaying ar.itnal or vegetable matters, it absorbs all tbe offensive and hur ful gases, and keeps tbe air sweet and wholesome "We really hope that charooal powdor will soon come into extensive use as a deodorizer and disinfectant. It appears to us that u can be ground in mills in tbe timber regions where wood is cheap, transported to our cities, and ?old at a vry moierate price We are con vinced that a pientiful use of fresh ground wood charcoal for sinks, damp floors, and the drains of cellars, would greatly tend to prevent disease in many places, by the absorption of miasma." Public Scbools ?On Tuesday, 2*>ih ultimo, the senior department of Public scho<. 1 No 3, first distriot, Miss H. A Biker, principal, passed the usual examination, there being present trustees Polk, Bennett and Magruder, and a number of tetthcrs, with the parents and friends of the children. Of the examina tion as a whole we may say everything was in order, and exhibited a highstiteof im provement. Tbe singing was executed as children only, when properly instructed, can ting. The classes acquitted themselves cred itably to themselves and their teacher The history class did themselves honor. Arithme tic and geography are well understood. It is gratifying to the fnenos of public schools to see that they are teeing so high a position in respect to moral and intellectual culture. Ibursday. the 2S.h ult, tbe primary cchocl of thet'ourtn distriot was examined by the t us tees Messrs Magruder. Pearson and AtLec, who were assisted by Mr Tajlor, ot Kitten house aoademy, an ardent friend of the Public Schools This school is in care of Siiss A Adams, and consist* of seventy scholars The examination was very satisfactory, indeed, and proved what cosld be do^a by patienoe and industry. The children of thii ?3hool contribute eaah a penny monthly to the nati?nal monument, nnd this practice has obtained for the e;hool the came of Monument School On Fr day, tbe male primary school or ii* fourth diuxict passed through their examina tion. Thfs school is under tbe care of .Vr. John ?. Thompson, who has succeeded in making it one of the best primary school* iu the city There were preaint Messrs Magru der, Polk, and Pearson; Col. Randolph, an cfi'-ent me iter tf the late board; Mr. Thempsoa, of the fourth district school; Mr. Edson, junior department, second district; Mrs Oglen. Mrs. Myers, Miss McCarthy,Miss Lowe, and Miss llenahaw. primary teachers, Miss Milburo, of the fourth district school, and a lar<? number of parents and others. The examination was not oaly satisfactory to the examiners, and creditable to the ins rce tor and pupils, bul surprising to many who had no expectation that a primary school could be advanced to the condition in which this was found Firb ?Early yesterday morning, the large and commodious dwelling-house near "the Circle," in the First Ward, was destroyed by fire. It was formerly occupied by Mr Fox, at one time the Briti&h Minister near the Gov ernment of the United beaten, and subsequent ly by other foreign diplomats. The loss is es timated at from five to eight thousand dollars, on which, it is said, there was an insurance; and, further, that the property belonged to the estate of the late General Gratiot, and was latterly owned by Saiuuel Chooheaci The horn-e was unoccupied; and,from certain ciroumstances, there is little or no doubt that th^ fire was caused by an incendiary. Tne fire companies of Washington andGeorgetowa, with their customary promptitude, notwith standing the beat of the weather, were on the ground as early as possible, but their good in tentions were frustrated by a scarcity of that essential liquid in such cases?water. The good order of the firemen, aud their mutual efforts to suppress tue flames, are worthy of the highest commendation. Honor to the noble band. Irving Lvcbcm ?The reader's attention is called to an advertisement in another ool umn, of the Irving Lyceum, invitiug the pub lio to attend a celebration, on to-morrow even ing, at the Smithsonian Institution. It f rom iaea to be an affair well worthy of public at tertion, and from ithich both entertainment aid inetruotion will be derived.
