The several articles of that Important instrument and the various clauses were recited word for word, with strict accuracy, although not called for in successive order. The first class merely excelled the second class in his torical information. At the conclusion of the examination, Mr. At Lee made a few remarks commending the bovs for their unflagging inter est in this hi anch of their studies, and assured them that they were already much better versed in that instrument than thousands of busy poli ticians who were so vociferous about a **rrtd rhnrtrr, not a sentence of which they had ever read He incul< ated the important e of virtue as well as of intelligent, so that they might be come good as well a? intelligent citizens.

Dr. McKim, after expressing the gratification of the Trustees at the manner in which the school had passed its ordeal, introduced Mr. Jefferson of the City Councils, who proceeded to make some in teresting practical remarks, concluding by re minding the pupils that, without correct moral training, all other knowledge would be power less to them, except for the accomplishment of wicked ends; .md that bv laying a foundation of goed principles, they would not only become good and useful men. but they would be happy Lere and hereafter. Criminal Cocht.?Yesterday, after our report rlosed, the case of the United Slates r.?. Zepha liiah Offutt, for assault and battery on Michael Corcoran, was submitted to the Court. The wit nesses proved the assault to have been committed, and Offutt was lined ?."> and costs of Court. Sev eral other cases wtre called, and in the absence of material witnesses were laid over. This uiorning the Court took up the case of the 1 nitnl Slates r?. Richard P.. alias Wrangy Jones, charged with assault and battery, with in tent to kill, on Rose Bell, at the County Juil, on the 17th day of April last. Mr Wharton, acting for Mr Key, the Distrirt Attorney stated to the jury that oa the day in question the said Rose Bell called on Jones at the jail, where he was confined, on a visit of friend ship and kindness; that the said Jones, on her parting from him. expressed a desire to kiss her, >he. absenting. I?ent forward to eceive the salute when Jones took a razor out c.f his pocket, and drew the edue a< rocs her throat, inflicting a wound which would have been mortal had it not >?een that her breastpin intercepted the weapon in its course. Mr. Ratcliffe, for defence, announced himself prepared to show a diseased state of mind amount- i ing to temporary insanity on the part of the pns- ' oner at the time of the committal of thedeed. The examination of witnesses lieing en ercd upon? Mr. Ward, the jailor, testified that on the day of the occurrence two girls came to the jail. Rose Bell and Elizabeth Staples, and asked for Jones; brought him down to them and turned away; a few moments afterward heard a scream; turned round and saw Rose Bell on her knees; ran up; the blood was running down; took hold of Jones and asked him why he had done that; Jones said he loved the girl and asked her to marry him, and she had refused, she had been there many times before. A ra7or was produced in Court, which Mr. W. identified as tin-one taken from Jones after the commission of the act. Rose Bell aha? Relieeca Martin was put upon the stand, and testified to the effect that Jones hnd frequently appeared as though his mind was affected; that she liad never refused to marry him; and that he was jealous of her. The case is yet in progress. A Street Sweeper.?The street sweeping ex periment, announced in yesterday's Star, as to take place at 6 o'clock yesterday evening, came off at that hour under the superintendence of the patentees. Messrs. King A Ilyneman, of Phila delphia. The locality of the experiment was Seventh street, between K and F streets north. The side walks speedily tilled with spectator* the novel looking machine made its api*?arance on the ground, and in a matter-of-fact way com menced moving up and down the streets, per forming, in its travels, the work of some dozens of ordinary brooms. Two horses drew the ma chine. to which a mammoth brush was attached which revolved as the machine moved and '? win rowed"' the dirt in the centre of the street in con venient shape to lie removed by c rts. The brushes for this sweeping machine are construct ed of a species of South American wood, the Paysavo wood The machine did its work faithfully and rapid ly at the point where it was tested, but we sup pose would not answer on macadamized streets, we presume that such a machine might find am ple employment on the Avenue.

A very charming address, delivered to Father Byrnes by a young lady ?quite unexpectedly to hi m. evidently?drew from that gentleman one of the fluest impromptu replies we ever remember to have heard This school which appeals so powerfully to the sympathies of the benevolent, numbers some 125 orphans (who are fed. clothed and educated), and receives, moreover, some 212 day schola s, who receivecaiefu! instruction semi-gratuitously.

Printer; C. II Munck, Gunsmith, and Mrs King, Milliner The fire is supposed to have been the woik of an incendiary, ami commenced in the fancy store. In a short time it communicated to Munck's gunshop, and the constant exploding of guns ami pistols deterred persons from entering the store to save the goods. Much<f the stock iu Reese's store was saved in a damaged condi tion, as also his tools in the workshop. D'I'nger's printing establishment is a total loss Messrs.

Thosk Canal Boats ?In the Alexandria Ga zette of yesterday we find the following in rela tion to the Canal boats lately purchased in New York for use on the Chesapeake and Ohio Ca nal :? "Alexandria, June30.?At the request of the party in charge of twenty Canal Boats, being part of forty-seven lately brought from New York, I certify that, having measured the width of the only cnnal I'oat in port, and which belongs to the Cumberland Coal and Iron Company, ami one whi? h was rebuilt late last fall, and has made one trin to Cuml>erland since. I tind the following re sult : Ten of the New York lioats are of a less width ; three correspond in width ; four are one fourth of an inch wider; and the remaining three selected without regard to width, have proceeded up the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, as rar as nav igation will permit The statement that they are three inches too wide is, therefore, erroneous?but not more so than that respecting their owner ship. as T understand the Cumberland Coal Com pany have no interest in them.

The above reward will be paid at this office on the delivery of the money. The Fine Alarm Hell of the Franklin Fire Company was raised to the bellfry on their new engine house yesterday afternoon, and a trial of its qualities made of a satisfactory nature. The company's building is not yet finished, but is far enough advanced to make it a decidedly orna mental feature in that neigldiorhood.

That Mysterious Truxk, mentioned in yes terday's Star, turns out to lie the property of Mr. Alexander Riley, who resides on south G street, Island, near Page's wind (or rather steam) mill.

Iti.mramt Glaziers.?For several days, in fact all last week and tins, our city has been swarming with I tin'rant (Hazier*, who have no interest in tins community, hi common with our own mechan ics, who thus by the employment of these men, are deprived of much work that of right should be given to those settled among us. Why are these interlopers employed.'' What claim linvc they upon our citizens.' None whatever. Surely our resident mecltanics, citizens who have all their interests of identity in common with the prosperity of Washington, are fully competent for the discharge of what work shall he given to them. Then why bestow patronage upon persons who make their exit frwm the city as soon as the occasion of the had storm shall not avail them further work? taking with them their earnings to spend in other localities than Washington. Itissanl that some of our leiuling citizens have employed these interlo pers to the detriment of their own settled mechan ics. If so, the more shame for it; and we hope that a sense of shame for so doing wiil cause them not to do so again, hi depriving thus their own fellow citizens from a share of their support. Again: em ploying these ttiiirrnmt glaziers is hut lessening i the standard of mechanical excellence, for in truth most of them nre hut " tr kippers is'' in the trade, having served no tune to learn their trade to qualify theiu to Income master workmen. We therefore hope that those citizens of Washington who wore " pelted l?y the storm of hail" during the past week, will have compassion upon their own neighbors in giving out their work, and not l>e so ungenerous as to prefer strolling workmen to do their work in preference to a regular meoluuuc, settled in their midst, who have been and are ever thankful for all orders in the line of their profession.
