LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Princ Schools ?The Fourth District School, male department, John E. Thompson principal, yesterday. Among the large num ber present we noticed several of the late Board of Trustees, as well as of the present Board. The niKh reputation attained by this school invariably induces a large attendance at its examinations. especially of teachers. Among those yesterday it was a gratification to her friends to number Miss Jane M. Thompson, one of our most promising feniale teachers, but who by severe illness has be-.n detained lately from her charge. The female department of the Fourth District school. Miss M Milburn principal. was present at the examination and occupied seats in the rear of tne punils. and during the exercises thev kind ly faforrd the audifnrf with tone tociI mu^ir. which was performed with great taste and ex J?ression. We he** to hear more of the same sort It'in those little giils before long The classes were examined in tne following or der viz: I. The first. second and third classes in reading and oral spelling; 1 Dictionary, by all the pupils except those who have entered school ?ince **eptember last; 3. Correction of false syn tax, ami punctuation; 4 Analysis and correction of sentences, their classification, elements, trans position and equivalents; 5. Mental Arithmetic tColburn's), second class: 6. Constitution of the I nited States, first class; 7. geography, second ? lass; H. Mental Arithmetic, first class; 9. Eng lish Grammar, second class; 10 Written Arith metic and geography, first class; ll. Written Arithmetic, second class; 12. Geography, first class. " The examination passed off according to gen eral expectation, with great, and we may sav. perfect success The classcs in English gram mar were examined bv Mr. Hardv. and the class on the Constitution of the United States, by Mr. At Lee; these pupils exhibited the most com mendable proficiency, and gave unquestionable evidence that they clearly comprehended the true intent and application of their studies as far as they had progressed. The reading classes, as also those in echography, dictation and punctua tion, were put to a searching test in which their acquirements were shown to be of the first order, and their promptness in replying to all questions propounded as remarkable as was the correctness of the answers given. In Urography the pupils were subjected foa rigid examination at the hands of Mr. '/. Rich ards, of the Union Academy, and in this branch the progress had been very great and the ground well and thoroughly gone over. In Mental Arithmetic the whole school was ir"od The pupils were examined in this branch by Mr Abbott, who made a searching and ex tended examination upon figures and quantities, which the pupils endured, and out of the search ing fire of which they caine without the loss of a sm^Ie arithmetical hair. We noticed among the vistors the venerable and esteemed friend of. the Public Schools, Mr. J<?hn Sessford. his snowy locks presenting a very strong centrist to his clear blue eye anu almost wiwrinkled face; also, Mr. Jefferson, of the City Councils, and Messrs. Donoho and Tree. Chair men of the Committees on Public Schools in the Uoard of Aldermen and Common Council. At the close of the examination, Mr. At Lee ex pressed. in a few remaiks. the high gratification felt by the Board of Trustees at the great success ef the examination just parsed through with, us far as given ; he said that it was impossible f,>r the Hoard to review the studies of an entire year in the short space of three hours, and averred that, in his opinion, the greatest progress of the pupils had not been shown for the reason above given; he remarked in complimentary terms upon the great results which had come from the persevering and devoted attention of the teacher t > his school, and gave notice that, in the coming examination of the five best pupils of each school in the city, the pupils of the Fourth District School might be expected to take and maintain a position which should lie second to nr?ne. Mr. Abbott, upon i>eing called upon to address the school, said that he felt sure that when he ex pressed his unqualified gratification at the suc cessful isjue of the examination of the school he expressed the feelings of every person present; the; large company gathered together at that place bad come there knowing the high reputation that the school sustained, and had come with great expectations; he had come with these feelings, and he h<id not been disappointed; the examina tion had exceeded the largest anticipations of not only himself, but, he felt confident, of all. He alluded to the excellent order which had been maintained throughout,and the neat and scholar like appearance of the pupils. He sjioke of the excellence of the classes in reading, and the per fect training which they had given evidence of in the proper inflection of the voice, and the dis tinct utterance, and observance of the marks of punctuation The grammar classes were, said the sp-aker. superior to any he had ever seen. I both in a correct knowledge anil proper anil ready utoplication of the principles governing its use. alluded to the several other branches In which the pupils had given decided signs of rapid ad vancement. and -slid that this was not only to l?e aifBbiited to the effort* of the teachers, but that fjBD?ethin^j was due to other influences; nuchas fcpr?ug a large and convenient ri>om in which to mtvdbr, and spacious play grounds, plenty of f.csh other concomitant conveniences. -Thai speaker then went on to give, in b"ief, a J of the public schools of Washington had been a resident of the city, staTing 'U he first came here he was struck with unt of money expended by the govern iii providing such excellent and comfortable Wbodations for the criminals, and their ne glect in respect to providing proper means to pre MaMhpir own children f. um becoming criminals. ? Miserable school accommodations which were furnished for the sons and daughters of our ofMcrns was put in strong contrast with the acts ofTne Councils in voting $3.j.(uu for a spacious airy workhouse, and at the same time per ing their sons and daughters to tie educated -Be.-son's stable, where the rats were so nu js that they frequently stole the dinner of ripils while they went up to the teacher's h< recite their lessons. J^he sp aker expressed the hope that in future would be a great deal mo;e attention paid eomfort of the se hoe>l children, in order to them educated properly; as, for example, 4fef??omy, comfortable, airy, clean house they Jgm and the excellent teacher before them; TIBU let the criminals lieca'ed for according to deserts. He spoke of the ii:tie. badly-ven d suuare rooms and church basements, damp and d.nfc, where the most of our ladv teachers "*t?pardize their lives almost daily, as well as of leir pupil*, and the frequent interruptions thus oicasioned in the different schools from sickness uf the tea- her; and suggested to the Secretary of Boaid of Trustees the propriety of keeping a .pp-ord of the number of days that each teacher is ?feent from the school from sickness thus caused. d*d the amount of school time thus lost to the This course would perhaps awaken in ti.e minds of those whose business it was to rem ?Ir the evil, the impo. taiwe of appropriating money for new and comfortable school-houses for the accommodation of their sons and daughters, where they might be instituted without danger fo the lives of their te.wrhers as well as them selves. CtiXlSAl Cocit.?Yesterday, after our report closed, the case of Patrick Cahill, charged with assault and lottery on Bridget Higgius, was closed, and the jury, after a few moments absence, returned a vcrdict of guilty. Sentence of the Court was that of imprisonment in the county jail for the term of two weeks, and to pay a fine of #10. ^ The Court then took op the Co'dHIa Ann Hay rell cases, commencing with No. 1*1. on which the defendant had heretofore been found guilty of grand larceny, and which verdict had, on re consideration. been changed to petit larceny, and fioin which verdict Mr Ratclifle. for defence, again appealed, on the ground of improper flnd lug in the Indictment. The property in this iu stance was a breastpin found in Delia's posse sion, which she purchased for a trifle of a boy. Mr. Ratclifle defended his client with much earaaataeas, and after considerable sharp shooting ix-fween counsel for prosecution and defence, the case was given to the jury, who found Delia not guilty on this count at least. The jury in the Gerhardt case having been out some t went v-five hours, sent word again to the Court that they could not agree and asked to be d'seharmed, which request was conceded by the t'ou-t, tuere appeariug no prospect of their coming to an agreement. I be jury from the first stood eight for acquittal and four for conviction, the questiou being with the differing jurors ,t? to the sufficiency of the faets fo show justifiable homicide. By agreement of counsel, the new trial in this east was assigned to be entered upon this morn ing To-day the Gerhardt homicide case Is up fo. again The following jury is sworn : Ja* Fulalove. Thos J Williams, John L. Maddox. John E Neale. John E. Kendall, Daniel t*tott, Aaion Divine, M Taylor. It. II Harrison. Daniel Light foot, R H. Wat kins and Francis B Lo-d.

Nicholls Ciooch.?From an interesting memoir (published by WiUlg, of Baltimore,) of Mr Crouch. who, as is well known to our read ers, a* the couduetor of 81. Mathews Church Choir and of the newly-organized Academy of Music In this rlty, we gather the following par ticulars : F Mr Crouch was born in England, 31st July, and descended from a line of ancestors of musical celebrity. At the early age of nine years young Crouch played the bam at the Royaf Co boarg Theatre, erected In honor of the marriage of the Princess Charlotte, only daughter of George IV. From the Minor Theatre, mail are designa ted on the Surrey side of tbe river, he worked him self into His Majesty's Theatre, and played a solo on the violoncello before Rossini. Bochsa, then In the zenith of his glory was conductor of the Opera, and was so pleased with the boy's devo tion to his profession he made him his pupil At the age of twenty, strong indications of vocal ex cellence manifested themselves; then it was that Bochsa transferred his pupil to William Hawes, master of St. Paul's Cathedral, W eliminated Abbey, and the Chapel Royal boys. Here young Crouch studied the Episcopal High Church ser vice, and the mighty works of Handel. In IttM, ? body of English nobleman, with King George IV as high patron, established (he Royal Acade my of Music, in Hanover Square, London. To iKTorne a royal student was tbe next aiin of our ambitious balladist: but the princely fees de manded, to most minds, woula have precluded all hope of success. Not so with young Crouch : he wrote a plain statement of his' position, and the love he held for his profession, demanded of the board of managers and the piofessors of the institution a patient hearing and an examination. That examination terminated in his being en rt lied a royal student the week following. While at this academy he, with the students of the College were in frequent attendance at the Royal palaces, after which he was appointed to Queen Adelaide's private band. This continued until the introduction of the fa mous English Reform Bill; when the Court ex penses were reduced, and with them, the leduc tion of the household band Then it was our Balladist l>ecame principal Violoncellist at Drury l.aue Theatre, under old Sit/'htH Price's management, of American re nown; and here he wrote his first Ballads? ' Zephyrs of Love," for Miss Anne Tree; and ??the Swiss Song of Meeting," for Madame Mal ibran. After a servitude of years at the Patent I heatres, he embarked in mercantile pursuits, was ruin d bv liis comn.ercial par.m rs, and again turned Lis attention to iiiumc, and com posed his "Kathleen Mavournecn," and his Irish work, "Echoes ^?f the Lakes." At the death of William IV., he was com manded to attend the co.onation of Queen Vic toria. This he did; and while in London, the tirm of D'Almaine .V Co., Soho Square, ollWcd hun the snpervisorship of the establishment at a yearly salary, and to contract for all his compo sitions for the following seven years. This was agreed to. and he left Devonshire once more for the metropolis. At this particular period of time Captain Maryatt was editing The Metropolitan Magazine; Howard, sub-editing ; Mrs. Crawford writing her autobiogiaphy. The popularity of Kathleen Mavournecu created a password anion-' the above named writers: an introduction was sought aiul the warmest friendship made between all paities. Our Balladist became the musical reviewer on the magazine, and through its me dium became known t > all the reigning poets and lyrists of the time, and from the pleasant unions of these kindred spirits at our Balladist\s soirees we date the crcation of his list of English works. In 1310 he left England for the continent of A me. ica, in quest of matter and material where on to build a national work, to he entitled 11 Life in the West," as understood by the English peo ple; which means the whole continent and not a section. This labor of love has considerably ad vanced toward completion; and during his so journ with us he has published very many beau tiful specimens of vocal writing, besides a woik entitled ?? Select Drawing Room Ballads." Mr. Crouch is a married man, devoted to his family and the education of his children. His eldest daughters are perfecting their studies in France, and report peaks highly of theii attain ments. Bible Society.?The monthly meetinj of the Board of Managers of the Bible Society was held last Wednesday evening. Among other proceed - ings, under the resolution " that the pastors of the several churches of this city be requested to present the Bible cause to their respective con giegations, and have contributions made duriu" the present year, at such time and in such form as may be most agreeable to themselves," the Sec retary was requested to ascertain at what particu lar time each presentation cau conveniently l>e made in each chuich, and report at the next meeting. The report (for the Third Ward) of the explor ing and distributing agent was presented, read, and. on motion, accepted as satisfactory, and or dered to be filed. From this report it appears that 1.300 families were visited in that Ward, of which r,7 were found destitute of any portion of the Sat red Scriptures; of these 3f? nave been supplied, II by sale and '22 by donation, for which earnest ex pressions of giatitude were returned, and 31 re fused to receive, generally avowing as the cause that they had their prayer books, and these they considered sufficient. Number of Bibles sold :v\, Testaments, 33; amount of sales. jf.J7.15; amount of contributions received, Sly To; total of cash re ceipts. S7tt.00; number of Bible* distributed gratuitously, 13; Testaments, 0: cost of Bibles and Testaments thus distiibuted, SI 72. Of the ?>7 destitute families visited, 41 were white and ?1 colored, embracing 23!) persons; twenty-three of these destitute families habitually neglected the house of divine worship, the avowed cause of neglect in most cases being family cares and troubles. Some of these acknowledge their fault lu this respect with shame, and promised to ex ert themselves in future toovercoine the obstacles in their way and attend the reading of the Word of Ood. 1 it reference to Sabbath schools, the agent re marks??? It is gratifying to state that owing to the facilities afforded by Mission Schools in lo calities remote from churches, nearly all children in destitute families visited, were in attendance upon this impoitant auxiliary of the Church ;" twenty-seven children only were found not so attending. and some of them promised to com mence attendance. The third is one of the central Wards of the city, in which Church fa cilities are numerous, and the people are gener ally Church-goers. The reception of tbe Agent was cordial, and the friends of the cause rejoiced in the work prosecuted by the Society. There wa? fir less of open infidelity, and a great de crease. as ( oinpared with other localities, of mere wilful and ignorant rejection of God's word: while a vast field still lies open to the labors of the Christian ; yet all the agencies employed are prosperous, and doing much to remove hin drances and impediments in the way of the Gos pel " 3 The A?ent. Mr. Win. J. RerlstraKe, was In structed ?o continue the exploration and supply of the First Ward, the only one now remaining to the completion of the work. The Chairman and Secretary were appointed a committee to supervise the publication of the an nual report, which will shortly be ready. Donations of Bibles and Testaments were, on application,made to the Washington City Orphan Asylum, to the Sabbath School attached to the Thirteenth street Baptist Church, and the Chair man was requested to visit the present temporary alms house, and provide such supply of Bibles and Testaments for the inmates as might be found neeessary under existing circumstances.

I am proud to sav it wul srand, and it ciiaileii?;es the closest and *e verest aerutim. From Mr. Rlioads' circular, just now published and circulated. I make the subjoined literal extracts " I will convince any man who will appl% to me for the lacts that a most villainoua impoaition has tieen carried t?n in tins city and oilier planes where certain ljglitninx-ro-.l points have been put up. We have the inof.t positive cviileuce that men were never more thoroughly hnmbui?<?d or swindled than those who have pureliasrvl some of theae pewter lichtuinic-rod points.

I'rom the greatness of windy words and latere J eilortsata scientific disquisition upon the subject of electricity which make up the inajor part of Mr. K1.. sads* circa la r I have called and quoted the fore going rxt.-acta 111 order that I might give then: s plain aisl con.prehcnsive contradiction. I manufaet ure and put up lightning-rods with points of various de scriptions. as they may Ik; demred or ordered by those w!k? engage me m the matter, but 11. no in stance have I ever put up ?ii?-h rrortk h ?.? or t" irtt r lightning rod point* as Mr. Rtioads d?seril?ed.

Mr. Rho-.ds may do Ins work for less *mns than I charge, and I should think he could afford to do so. My work isditferent from his, but I do it as low as tontf tcork and goo?# materials ean t>e done. Mr. Klioad* furnishe* statements from gentlemen that they have employed him to take down points from their lightmng-rud? and put up his am in the<r stead. So I have been engaged in several instances to take down his point* and put up in) own in plaon of thein. I have not gone to the trouble in thus promptly repljing to Mr. Rhoads's circular 'put forth to injure me 111 mv busine*?i to procure and p.iblish certihoateK from leading and men in this community of the superiority and eflioncy of im svstcm of light ning-rod* and points ; Init I can ?lo so at any time, and will, if I shall find it proper to again take notice of what Mr. Rho&ds is donuc to injure ine in in* business.
