EVENING STAR. "local intelligence. The Late Attempt to Dm* Gr ace CHntcH. The many inquiries which have beeiu made of ututo the a't?mpt, on the night of tho 11th inst., to burn Grace Church, and tho wide ?prea<l interest which is felt upon the subject, hare induced us to make inouiry of the pas tor. Rev. Alfred Uolmead. who has kindly lur r.Hh*d u? with the fallowing particulars': "That Grace Church was fired on the night of the 11th, is lamentably true. That It was the act of some incendiary admits of no doubt. That the incendiary act was fully premedita ted and most carefully devised is e iua'ly cer tain. The point at which the cumbu.-tible ma terial was deposited must have been selected in the day-light. On either side of tho church there are fix wooden buttresses. The case ment to these, with a single exception. reaches the ground, and could, therefore, ufford no convenient place of deposit for the combusti ble material unless the earth beneath was re moved or the plank forming the casing torn, in part. away. Unfortunately, however, in a single instanco the casing did not extend to the ground, by some two or three inches. This point, therefore, was selected. A ball of can dle wick, thoroughly saturated with turpen tine. was inserted underneath the casing of this buttress and lighted. Thi3 ball of wick, r.nd a portion of the paper in which it was wrapped is now in the i*>sscssion of the vestry of tnc church. *' The flame thu? lighted in the buttress, quickly communicated with the laths and other wood work at the southeast corner of the church, and in a few moments the destruction of the whole building seemed inevitable. But in the good pTovider.ee of God, by tho active exertion of a few faithful men, the flames were kept under, until the firemen arrived, when they were exlingui.-bed by the almost superhuman effort - of those brave men, and best guards of ?ur eity welfare. As to the motive which could have instigated so diabolical an act, it is, al most, impossible to conjecture. The rector, vestry. and congregation of the church have given no cause tor such a display of fiendish ness on the pnrt of any one. The acceptuble mmof the services of the church is fully attes ted by the facts, acknowledged of all, that here, up?>n the Island, where a few years ago. but some three or four church families were t< und. without a place iu which to worship, now a 4? beautiful und holy house" is teen, with one of the most important congregations, certainly the second in size of the six well or ganized and in active being So far as is known, with all these we have lived and moved upon the mo?t harmonious and grateful term.-"- Never, to our knowledge, has one act been done, or one word spoken by us. or our people. to give offence or to create heart burn ing The work of God has been dene by us and our people, quietly, peacefully, and lov ingly towards all. To our brethren of all other denominations around ui. we hesitate not to make the open appeal in behalf of tho truth ef the above statement. Had the work of the incendiary been accomplished, to the full ex teat of his hellish purpose, and our church burnt to the ground, our conviction is. from the tokens of sympathy already in our iiossescion, that^the other congregations on the Island, without a -ingle exception, would have fell the shock of the sad event equally with our peo ple '? But will the fiery blow whieh has been struck be repeated ? shall the flame again be Hghted? We hesitate not to say we have our fears and misgivings. On Sunday last, just bcli re the church was lighted for evening ser vice. and while our heart-strickcn people were making ready to seek God's altar, already de faced and charred by the flames, the chancel windows, by # me ruthless hand, were par ti*?.!y destroyed Up*>n the assembling of the e mgx^ation, when this second outrage w.xs kn< wn. the righteou-- indignation of the peo ple could scarce be suppressed. The perpe trators of this second act of vandalism, it is believed, may be discovered. It is also thouaht that the ball of wick, together with a portion of the paper in which it W!?s folded, may yet lead to the detection of the church burner, for whose arrest and conviction the most searching investigations are already en foot. One cannot help connecting the firing of the ehurch with tho breaking of the windows ?f God s sanctuary under sueh ?ggravatid circumstances. The result may yet declare that to one and the ? tme sonree they are at tributable. Tho prayers of all good people will be for the detection, arrest and conviction ef doers of deeds so foul.*' .

Al though notice of ih'j contemplated event Was published from five of the city pulpits, and by advertisement in the newspapers, not more than twen'y persons were present?one-half of them ladies. Suitable speeches were made. It is to be regretted thst the nuuiber of audi t >n was so-small. Either the weather was too warm for our citizens to attend, or there is a prevalent indifference to the good cause. We inspect that both these causes operated to keep people away. ? Mr-sir.?Professor W. H. Palmer, the dis tingui*hed organist of St. Matthew's Church, beitg now absent in Europe, the congregation or that church were delighted, on Sunday last, with the performance of the accomplished Mrs Blanchard. who presided at tho magnificent "rgaa. accompanied by our iellow-citixen, A.

Having reach ed the roof, where be had near aeeesj to the ohambvr of the jeeond story, he cautiously opened tie blinds, which were merely bowod, and standing on tho outside, took from the gentleman's pantaloons, which were lying on a chair within immediate reach, a pocket-book containing S22o.

Mr. Hopkins would have put n ball from his revolver into the intruder ha I he seen him. having a five-barrelled ihooter within reach.

The examination was chiefly conducted by the teachers above named, and Mr. Richards, who has rendered valuable assistance. The school appeared to advantage, especially in the more advanced parts of arithmetic, problems in in terest, the extraction of root*, in proportion, itc., were worked out with much facility.
