Orrica Trustees or Ppblic 8chools, ) Washington. Aug. 1, 1856. j Gentlemen:?I beg loave respectfully to tender my resignation of the office of Secre tary of the Board of Trustees of Public Schools, to take cfiect at the close of the present month. The duties of my present vocation, the care and education of my own children, and the impaired state of my health, prevent me fr^m viiitiDg the schools so frequently as their in terests demand, and from giving then that attention which is properly required of the Secretary by the rules of the Beard In taking leave of the Board, with which I have been connectcd for nearly twelve years, it gives me great satisfaction to believe that the discipline of the public schools was never Letter than it now ia, nor the system more suc cessful and efficient in ita operations, its hold upon public opinion stronger, nor its future prospects more bright and encouraging. This measure of success is due, under Prov idence, to the careful superintendence of the Irustee?, to the icalous and unwearied exer tions of faithful, laborious and accomplished teachers, the earnest and cordial coo ^ration of the City Councils, and the healthy influ ence of a sound public opinion Accept my thank? for the aid and encour agement which jou have given me in the dis charge of the responsible dutie.- of the office with which I have been nonored ; and the ex pression of my confident belief that the pub lic schools of Washington will continue to be, as they heretofore aTways have been, schools for the people, without distinction of class, seot, or party, and, which, with the liberal patronage of Congress, are destined to become the model schools of the Republic. Wirh my best wishes for your continued success in the discharge of the important trusts confided to your care, and for your individual prosperity and happiness, I remain, gentle men, very respectfully, your obedient servant, G J.

During the afternoon, the handsome silver cup which had been procured by the teacheis was presented to Mr Edes by the Rev. Mr. Brown, on the part of the teachers, in a neat address, and received by Mr Edes iu a short, but very felioitous and touching manner. Every thing passed off very hand somely, and nothing seemed to contribute more to the real enjoyment of the party than the gentlemanly conduct of Mr Hitter, the 4>wner of the paoket M C. Meigs, which con. vtyed them down, and bis uniting efforts to contribute to the pleasures of the day. His kindness will not soon be forgotten by the Dum barton ftreet Sabbath School.
