LOCAL INTELLIGENCE* Pcblic Scmool EEAittiiATtorss. ?Yesterday afternoon we bad the plenaure of being present at the examination of Primary school. Second district. Male department; Mr*. K M. Ogde* Irrsf metres^. The examination was conduet?i by MMtn. Magrnder and Polk, trustees, assisted by Mr J?hn B. Tbomptoa, principal of the Fourth district school. The school-room was crowded to excess with visiters; parents, teacher*, and a large number of strangers, amooz whem we no ticed Mr. Hyde, trustee of Public schools in Georgetown, as well as several lady tear hers from that town. This school rank* among the first of Its clasa in the city. At the examination of yea terday the popils were, we think, put through a harder drill of questioning than we hare pre viously witnessed. But the ooys were prompt and up to tne mark on every interrogation. Tbespell iug was good, the reading very good, as also the writing and mental arithmetic. In the latter they wre examined by Mr. J. K. Thompson, himself an adept in that branch, and he, after a severe re view. as far as they had gone in their lessons, ac knowledged that oe could not catch the pupils at fault; and he certainly did put a good many powers, which would have staggered older per sons After the examination. Mr. Magruder introdu ced Mr. Hyde of Georgetown, who addressed the hoys in a' very happy manner. expressing his threat giatification at the examination just passed by the school, and congratulated the pupils on having so exitllest a teacher. ? Male Primary School No. 4. Mr. A. Edson, teacher. This school was examined yesterday by Mr. Z Richards of the I'nion Academy, and Mr. Henshaw, teactter in the Third District. The school exhibited proficiency. good training and fc,o?d order, much to the credit of their teacher, who has evidently done his duty faithfully and ? nccessfully. This school has some sixty'l?o\s f ??m eight to fourteen years of age. A correspond ent expresses regret that more of the municipal authorities were present at this examination, and says : '? Let not o?r city fathers be astonish- d if, not only the teachers of siich schools become dis hentened and uninterested in their work, but even tt>* boys themselves lose their regard for both scbeol. and school officers." Tnx River?In the absence of any thing more profitable in the way of business at the Long Bridge, the boys are turning their attention to eel trapping. La?t night a trap was set at the wharf, made of an emptv barrel, so constructed that their eelshlm after entering the trap inquest of the bait find themselves unable to take the back track, and in this manner the barrel becomes sometimes filled with the slippery, snakish look ing varmints. The barrel this morning contained between two and three hundred of them, who were placed in a half hogshead, and sprinkled with salt, which has the same effect wn their ten der skins that fire would have, aud very soon kills them. The mud machine from Philadelphia, which t?e?n lately cleaning out the docks at George town. came down to the wharf of Messrs. Magru der ft Stone this morning, where she has been set to work to deepen the water thereabouts. This machine works much faster than anything of the kiud we have yet seen, carrying about three loads to one of the machine i?o\v working in the city canal. It is much longer, and has a more nowei fnl engine. ai:d the loads of mud are towed out to the fiats l>y the screw tug Conestoga, which fit cilitate* the dredging operations greatly. To-day the steamer George Washington goes to Mount Vernon on her regular trip. A large number of passenger* were awaiting the arrival of the boat when we left the wharf. No, Sir-xe ' No. Maam-ee'?The Auxiliary Guards are pothered now and then, by the funni est demands for the performance of acts outside the programme of the A. G.'s official duties. Thus, a husband wants the officer to hunt tip his wife. who "has left her bed and board;" or a wife who demands that he shall go and bring her hn>band from this or that house on ? street. She knows he is in there, "and he ain't got no right there, neither," and she wants him to come Lome. Mr. A. B. who goes on a little u bust" and spends the evening at No. ?, loses his watch and Cket-book: is "sure he lost them there." but i't know which of the young ladies got it, thinks got it, on the whole. " Well," says the Guard, 44 we'll go to the station and get a warrant." 44 Oh. no," cries Mr. A. B. in alarm. ??I don't want my name mentioned in connection with it. Yon go and get the money for me with out a warrant.? Such instances are of hourly occurrence, and the officers can only smile at the verdancy of in dividuals who suppose they will lay them?elves liable to a prosecution by acceding to such de mands ? Ova SciDit Schools .?The Rev. Mr. IIol mead. of Grace Church. Island, on last Sabbath ?poke of the hopeful condition of the Sunday School of that Church, which from small begin nings has grown up to number some 1*23 pupils. It ha*, in Tact, increased so rapidly a* to cause the library of the school to be quite inadequate to its needs, and it is proposed to give a pic-nic and excursion down river for the t>enefit of the said library on the"thof July We have heretofore expressed our opinion in regard to the superior chances of enjoyment upon Sunday School excur sions over all others, and in this case particularly is there the added pleasure of aiding in an excel lent work. The excursion boat will leave her wharf at 44 o'clock a in , and return about sun- | d.-wn. visiting Fort Washington and the White House on her tiip Yor*e Me5's Literary Association.?We take pleasure in noticing the organization of asso ciations of young men for the purpose of mutual improvement Such an association was formed last night, at Central Academy, under th? title of the "Edward Everett Debating Society " With some of its originators we are well ac quainted. and know them to be young men of in tegrity and One natural abilities. We shall watch the career of the new Society with much interest The following officers were elected for the en suing v***r Win H Fr>well, President. t'harles Lammond. Vice President. James O. Cl^phane. Secretary. John C. Cornell, Treasurer. I\ the Navt Yaid?The "Plymouth" was t.->wed out into the stream yesteiday, from her moorings at the Navy Yard, by the steam tug Guv. and started on her experimental trip. At the same time the ??Fulton" was towed out by the Wide Awake, and her pilot managed, when at the spot the Minnesota was run aground, to steer also wide of the mark, and the "Fulton" i Wds run plump on the mud. was hauled off finally without much delay or damage. She goes down to Aquia Creek to try her new trailers and machinery : and if found to be all right, she will, afler returning to Washington to take on l>oard her officers and crew, procecd to Norfolk to await orders from the department. She is to be in the command of Capt John J. Alma. Bishop Btrne asu uis Successor.?We learn that the bull confliming the late nomination of the estimable and revered Father Byrne, of this city, to be the Roman Catholic Bishop of Pitts- { burg, has reached Washington, and that Bishop B is consequently preparing soon to sever his connection with his attached congregation of St. Matthews. Father Charlm W bite, of Baltimore, now the editor of the Catholic Magazine, is to succeed Bishop B a* lhe pastor of St. Matthews lie is a clergyman of high character and literary at tainments, second to those of no other ill the country, ills selection will doubtless prove a ! ?r*.mate one for the interest of the Church, and h<9 congregation also.

A Jew. named Henry Meley, was arrtsted yesteiday, by Officers Kemble, king, Watson and I'iggott, for stealing fancy goods, the property of a brother Jew named J M Cohn. who sells by the wholesale.

The only available comforts at hand Is a cool shade and a few bottUs of Arny ft bhtun's unequalled refreshing drink* PracTAToa A Seditk* Taics tookt Rid or his Pa*a Mors ? Hard Strettrimg on both Si4??.?Eight or ten days a^o we noticed a case of " tali swear lug,"' which occurred in the Police Court 1?efi?re Justice PafVuis. A man named James Bovte swore out a warrant for the arre?t of a woman whose name he gave v Julia Mack, who had. he said. robl<ed him of Boyle swore that la*t summer he, in company with the woman, left Greenpo't. Long Island, went to New Yo?k. came on to Albany, went to Troy, and then went to some town in oue of the northern counties; re cently, they returned to T.ov. and thea to th;? city; that they are not married, although livin* together as man and wife; that he has tw ichi,' dreu in Ireland; aud. finally, that while they were coming up from New York ia the cn< someeigh; months ago, he was robbed of 81-j, and that he never got any clue as to who took the lost money until about tea days ago. when h< found the pocket book, whieh was stolen with the money, in this woman's possession. On the'other side, the womau testified?^That last summer they were married in Grrenport, Long Island, where they were employed, ?ne as a domestic hi the family of Mr Moran, that shortly after they came to Albany; that they were married by Father McCarthy, the parish priest ot Greenport. and that John aud Margaret Burns were the witnesses; that she never knew the complainant to have so much money; and that he stole from her and destroyed the marriage certificate which the Rev. Mr. McCarthy gave to her. At this stage of the proceedings the examina tion wa? postponed until information might lie obtained from Greenport. Officer Clinton wrote to Mr. Moran, of that place, and Justice Parsons to the priest who the womuu swore had married thein Replies were received. The upshot of all this, says the Argus. Is. that Boyle got tired of his mistress, and thought to rid himself of her by charging her M'ith grand lar ceny. He swore positively to It. although, in all grohability, he never possessed the amount which e charged her with stealing. Although gailt j le-ss. fhe thought that the qaiete^t way to clear I he'self of the toils of the law won?d be to assert that she was Boyle's wife So she swore to the: marriage, and so clearly and positively as to de ceive everybody who listened to her. Thu* they both committed perjury. The case was dismissed ?/t/basy Atlas, 23d. Tiie FoarT-FootTii .Vstekoid ?A circular from Camb-tdge.
