L 0 C A kJ N T ? M' !?JtN ? E The Co*ck*t or thk tfiecTH I)i*TRtf? Sc?<*ol ?Let us have nrrasic m tbe publicschoole, bj al! manner of tnean* Sueh, Wf are hum, wan tbe mental ejaculation of the audience last night, at the Smithsonian Institution. There were the little witches of performers, in their white ilreuses and green ribbons, with their red cheeks and bright eyes and graceful ringlets, all going "to show that the Seventh Ward maintains Its old reputation as tty? baaner ward for pretty girls, as well as tine.looking men. And amongst (he au dience were the prond papns and mamas?and who would not he proud. indeed, under the cir cn instances' We cannot, for want of spare to-d ay. enumerate all the fine performancesnt the evening, hutmen t on the following as particularly weii done for mere children :?Cborusand Solo. "Hark ' hai k ' we come with song." Miss Mary Whiting; Choms. "Neva Boatmen*s r?ong;"' Trio "Praiw? of Music. Misses A. Linton/sl. Tbonip?oo. A Kellv; Chant. "The Lord is my Shepherd;" Duett and Chorns. " Mv happy home." MUses L Thomas, V. Jones. Song and Chorus, '-Origin of Yankee Doodle." Miss M Thompson. This was* d'-livered with much archness by a little baanty of a rul, and brought down the house. It was worth while to see how enthusiastic and love lorn the little fellows in the roundabouts were, and no doubt thev dreamt all night aftewards of the fairy songstress in the ** pink body." Echo Chorus: Double Duett, " Beautiful Star;"' Miss, s M Garrison. I.. Thomas. J. Lee, a. Linton; Chorus. " The frost looked forth one still, night;" Duett. " The Farmer Girls." Misse* F. and A Wright; Chant. "Abon Ben Adhem; Hound, " Hark ! 'Tis the Indian drum," Misses Mary Ainidon. F. Wright, J Lee, C Magee. A hell v. M Thompson; Canon, "May. lovelvNlay;"' Doett, "Sister Fay."- Misses M Arnidon. M. Thompson; Obligate Solo* and Chorus, '? Greet lug to Spring," Misses M Arnidon, A Kelly. M. Thompson. Comic Duett, "Mr. and Mrs. Jones," Misses V Harbaugh. M. Thompson Prof Scbeel presided at the piano, and in the course of the evening pe. formed, in an admirable style, a Grand March composed by him and ded icated to the Public Schools of Washington. \\ bat struck us as most remarkable in the per formances of the children last night, as also at the concert of the First and Second District Schools, was tbeir singular clearness of articulation ; and our impression is, that bv commencing their mu sical training thus early, and while their organs aie flexible, the buskihess and indistinctness of utterance, noticeable frequently in adult singers, inav tie entirely avoided The somewhat demonstrative mode of indica ting the time by the performers at the late concert was adopted, we are informed, by the accom plished gentleman who bad charge of the pupils at the suggestion of musical friends, in order to show that the pupils had a thorough understand ing of musical time. The success in thia respect was perfect; quite as much so however, was that of last night, when the mechanical movement was not so apparent, and here again we feel called upon to notice the advantages of early musical training We are certain it wonld be no easy task to teach the same nmntx-r of adults such admirable ?time" as was exhibited by the schoolchildren at these concerts of Messrs. Daniel and Glenroy. W e shall again take up this subject of music i in the public school*, rsutlice it to say that the j ? oncert of last night, like the preceding one,con clusively established the advantages to be derived I from sneli a department. Iaanyfuure ci nee,-t, it would, perhaps, be jn- \ diciou> .o curtail \e performance of any pupil 1 -omewliat who from defective ear. or from not being accustomed to sing with an instrument, cannot keep up to concert pitch. Such a dntv, we know is not pleasant to tne leader or the per !ormer, but it is kindness in the end to all parties. In conclnsion we heartily congratulate Messrs. Daniel and Gleuroy upon the success of their generous efforts to establish music in the public schools, and hope the day is not distant when they will be re:nunrat?d more substantially than by thanks. . The Momcmkxt Boakd Auaii?The special meeting of the Board came off yesterday after noon. per announcement, at the City Hall: Pres ent?Messrs. Ellis. Bradley. AtLee (secretary) McCaila. Craig, and Knight. The Board wm called to order by Mr. Ellis, tirst Vice President. The following letter was received and read : ?*T? tk> Pr,?,*,nt of Ik0 IF J* A notiat.on Si * : The undersigned, a writer for the pub lic press, desirous of being present at the session of your Board, for the puipose of noting its pro ceedings, respectfully asks that be mav lie per mitted to occupy a >eat near the labia of the Sec retary ; he has the honor to be, your ob't serv't, '? Thomas C. " On motion of Mr. McCaila. the following reso lution was adopted: ?? HdtolveJ. That Mr Connolly lie informed , that the Board respectfully declu^s to accede to his request to be present at tbe del i I ?e rat ions of j the Board, but that after the Board shall have ad- I joumed be shall be at tlie liberty to inspect the ! minutes of tbe proceedings, and make such ex tracts as he shall think proper." A letter from James Adaius was taid before tbe 1 Board, excusing himself from the duties assigned t to him by tbe Board, in common with Messrs. S> id?ii and Farnham. W bereupou. on motion, Messrs. Matjruder. Mc Caila and Craig were appointed a cominitte to wait upon these gentlemen and request them to proceed in the investigation Mr Ellis, from tbe select committee to whom had l?een ieferred sundry resolutions submitted by bun at the last meeting, made a report which was otdered to be published in the .National In telligencer ?^r- Crui^ then called f ?r the reading of a reso lution adopted on his motion at the last meeting of?be Hoard ealling upon the Secretary to set f.'Mh, in writing, whatever charges he had to make against tbe Board. The resolution having been read by the Secre tary? ' Mr. Craig asked that officer whether he bad complied therewith. i he Secretary replied that he was not prepared to do so at this time. Mr McCaila thereupon moved the following preamble and resolution: ?? V\ hereas a committee has been selected to in vestigate tbe proceedings of this Board, and i Whereas tbe Secretary. Mr AtLee, has avowed hi- intention to prefer charges against certain of | Its officers or members at some future time, there- i fore? Reiolr'.J. That it is due to the course of jns fu*e. and the security of the innocent, that the whole of the w-coids and papers of the Society be taken out of the bands or control of tbe Secretary a!*^. i'5*!*1 ^ 'n kands of a committee, who shall also take charge of the rooms now used by Ihe Secretary, and held until the further action of the Boald " The resolution was sustained by Messrs. Craig and McCaila. and the question was about being taken on the adoption thereof, when it was fur ther m idibed by strikiug out the word ??com mittee and inserting "a person not a memlter of the Boa: d, nor of the American party, to be se lected by the Klrst Vice President.' As the q: es.iou wxs then being put, Mr. Ellis arose and earnestly expostulated against the af firmative action of the Board, and pointed out, in tbe most foi< ible manner the detrimentary conse quences which must follow *orh a cow;# d'ita: ; that be ?aw no reason to believe that the papeis would >?e unsafe with thi' present custodian, and ?rated that he bad always l>-en and was still anx ious that the most thorough investigation should ??e had into the procerdings of the Ixiaid. Mr Bradley afterwards ex messed his assent to these views and Mr McCaila thereupon with dr> w his resolutions and the Board adjourned. The monument remains unfinished. Kivks IsiElLloMt* ?Toe ellects of the late rains on the current of tbe river are very apparent this morning, the tide sweeping down large (quantities of drift wood, scruff, etc. The prospect of anything more being done at the fisheries this season is entirely past Several men yesterday went over the river from the tang Bridge to the western shore to try tbe fishing giounds; but, after remaining there all day, they came back, having only takeu about l.UU) herrin" and forty to fifty shad. The season may be Con" sidered over. Captain Page brought down from the wreck of the old steamer Salem, which was burnt on the river near Georgetown last winter, a scow-load of old irou. including her builer?uone of it of par ticular value, except the anchor and chain cable Tbe schooner which weut ashore the day before yesterday at the bluff, below Alexandria, was got *. tt yesteiday evening, and towed up to tbe Alex andria wharf by the steamer Guy. rihe is a top sail West-lndiaman, of some i50 tons register.

John Chubb adium intra tot uf VVarrmgtm Mr. Badger made the closing argument for the claimant, and then the case was NMMUcd. Mr. Badger resumed anrl concluded the argu ment in benalf of the claimant In th? ease of Jas. Thompson, and the cane was submitted, i TheCouit then adjourned until Monday at 11 a. in. Thw I<onc> Bridob.?Why do not the bnslneaa men of Washington directly Interested as they are la the matter, take the work In hand forthwith of putting the Long Bridge to rights? If Con gress hereafter chooses to liquidate the expense well and good ; if not. the amount will not be a very crushing one for those called upon to bear it. We believe that there Is no other cltv In the Union of half the size of Washington that would not finish such a Job off hand If time Is money, the citizens of Washington have already spent many times the cost of repairing the bridge in idle declamation and in the getting up of memo rials and li resolutions.?? The Navy Yard?The sloop-of-war Ply mouth is taking on board provisions for her coin ing experimental trip along the coast. It is supposed that she will be detained for some time yet on account of the scarcity of sea men. The assertion Is made, we know not with what foundation in fact, that one cause of the scarcity of seamen is that the jolly Jack tars dislike the substitution of Hues for Hoggings, is provided by the late law doing away with Hogging in the Navy, The Fulton Is having her standing rigging set up. and being repainted She will be ready for sea in a few days. Bad Behavior in the Public Grounds ?A correspondent complains bitterly of the insulting demeanor of certain females who at times attend the promenade concerts of the Marine Band in the grounds of the Capitol and President's Man sion towards ladies unprotected by gentlemen. These entertainments are for th? benefit of those wbo know how to conduct themselves with pro prietv and respect for the obligation on all present to observe in all things a spirit of due comity to wards all others. The Police of the Public Grounds should promptly make examples of anv of either sex who may foil to behave themselves there. Biot.?Last night, a number of young darkey rowdies assailed the dwellings of citizens of the Seventh Ward, throwing stones fiirb. Ac., against the houses, breaking windows and doors. The Auxiliaiv Guard made a descent upon them, but caught onlv one of the party, who resisted, but was taken to the Central Guard House, and this morning was ordered to pav *?> 41 tine and give security for trial at court! The dthers en gaged in the row will propably be arrested before night. CiacrtT Court.?Yesterday, Mr. Carlisle fin ished his argument for defence in the case of Gardiner vs. s?nelling, and the Court adjourned without hearing the closing argument on the other side. il'his morning Mr. Bradley commenced the closing argument on the part of the complaint at Kt o'clock, and was addressing the Court when this report closed. Elegant Improvement. ? We enjoyed the pleasure, yesterday, of visiting the tasteful Im provement in the Piano Store of Mr. Bichard Da vis, which has been much enlarged and l>eauti fully fitted up. It is filled with a large and superb stock of Pianos. Among them we noticed an elegant Grind Piano, that has been purchased by Lord Napier This instrument is a model of American art, and worthy the reputation of the Chickerings, who are almost as well known as Piano makers throughout Europe as in this coun try. Orphans" Court.?To-day the case of Adams administrator of J. Law. rj. Bogers, is to come up for a hearing before Judge Purcell. Many in tricate law points are said to be involved in this case, and very able members of the Baltimore bar, as well as some of our own citv. are engaged by the parties On Tuesday last the will of the late John M. Clayton, of Delaware was proved before this Court, and ordered to be recorded. New Uniform.?The National Greys, a spirit ed volunteer corps of the volunteer regiment M. D. C. are about to dispense with the grey coat, a portion of the present uniform, and adopt the nine frock-coat instead This, it is thought, will t>e a great improvement, and will add to the ap pearance of the battalion when on parade. This is the next oldest company of volunteers in the District of Columbia. I Horse Overboard ?At an early hour this morning a horse, turned out to grass on the field between Sixth and Seventh streets, south of the canal, wandered too near the brink and fell into the canal. Efforts were made bv the Auxiliary Guard to rescue the poor animal, but liefore they could obtain sufficient aid it drowned. For Fcrtiier Hearing.?Maryland Bateman, the colored boy who was wounded by Buck Hall, on L street, Monday night, was taken to the guard house last night and required to give security for a further hearing. He is wounded in the ankle, and the wound i.^ painful but not dangerous. Register A Webb, of Baltimore, are prepar ing to cast a bell of 1,000 pounds for the Bev. Mr. Alig's (German Catholic) church of this city. Tax Sales.?There is quite a large attendance to-day at the annual sale of lots advertised for taxes. Watch Betlrns.?Maryland Bateman. as saults; security for further hearing Edward Burke, throwing stones, fine and costs S6 41; riot, security for court.

When first used, the pills may occasion griping, and even make the patient feel worse; this must be borne with for the good to come afterwards.
