First, Second, Thi.rt and Fourth, bring designated by their rib bons of blue, red. pink, and green, respectively Before speaking of the performances of the pupils, it may be proper to state that, in conse iifme of illness, one of the punils from the First istrict was compelled to go home; and that a little girl of the second class had been snbsti tuted in the Third district representation for the pupil at first assigned to the place, who was after wards taken sick. The da** was examined in geography. mental and written arithmetic, algebra, dictation, read ing. grammar. Green's analysis. Ac , and passed a creditable examination indeed, particularly in grammar, mental arithmetic, ortnograpby and dictation In the latter branch four lines of poetrvcontain ing twenty-six words, amounting to &B> to the ?lass, were given to the pupils to be written on their slates, which afterwards being examined showed? First District?On&word mis-spelled; Second District-?-Do., and punctuation marks omitted in two instances; Third District?Two words mis spelled; Fourth District?No error. In orthography, fifteen words were given out, or a total of 75 to each school save the First, where one pupil was absent, with this result: First dis trict, t? words were missed iu 60; Second, 1 in 75; Third, fi in 75; Fourth. U in 75. Several pieces of music were sung with good time and harmony bv the pupils, who have prof ited by the instructions of Messrs. Daniel and Glenrov in a commendable decree. Rev. Mr Samson was called upon on the con clusion of the examination to address the pu pils, which he did most acceptably, expressing lii* gratification at their progress as evinced there, and especially his delight at the music performed l?v the children. Pythagoras, the ancient philoso pher and teacher, always opened his school with music. In the speaker's opinion, those old fellows understood some things as well as we The ex cellence of the iwrformance in dictation was s|?o ki n of. He dia not think there was in the whole country a class of girls who could have done themselves more crcdit in writing, which accom plishment, he hinted, wonld be Invaluable when flu v eaine to corresj>oncl hereafter with intere:4 ing young men This concluding sentence of Mr. S delighted the very little girls of the class beyond measure, as they evinced by their shnll shout of laughter, while it was amusing to note the gravely reproach ful look cast upon the juveniles by the biggir girls, who, just entering upon their sentimental seemed to think the subject one not to be treated with such shocking levity. The Grand Exccrsios axd Pic Ntro* Ct?. i rM'a Lodge. I. O. O. F ?In another coiuratl will be found an advertisement giving full par ticulars of the fine excursion proposed to be taken by this Lodge on Tuesday, August 1th. As a mat ter of special interest to the ladies, and toothers who wish to be secure from rowdyism on such trip*, we call attention to the announcement that *? no liquor of any kind will be allowed to be sold either on the boat or at the Pavilion."' Another consideration?the moon is just at its full on the night of the 1th, and all excursionists well know what a delicious Ingredient a little moonlight is in these affairs. Then. Withers's Band is to be along, a good caterer has been secured, and an efficient committee designated to maintain perfect order and see that all hands enjoy themselves to the fullest. There will lie morning and afternoon Imvii*. and omnibuses will be stationed toconnect with the boat*. In fact, nothing wili be left un done to secure perfect comfort and enjoyment to all participators Treasury Extexsiox.?The immense base ment columns of the south front have l>een set. and workmen zre busily engaged in arching over the first or basement story. Next week the work will have been so far completed as to allow the long pilaster* to lie set up for the second story; Ibfse pilasters are of great size and weight; their length is thirty-two feet five inches,and in width they are three feet two inches, and two feet and ten inches deep. They weigh each fifty tons, and number two hundred around the south front. In the work of erection "great care is taken by those in charge of it, to make everything sub stantial and durable; this care is necessary, in the construction of a work like this, which is de ? igtied to endure for ages. The western wing is going ahead finely; ano ther month will see the work of excavation com pleted; and it is supposed that, by Fall, the en tire founda ions of the west wing will be laid, and the basement story erected by the close of ? the present working season. The MnjirjtEST Board is evidently in the throes of parturition, having held two meetings this week, with yet another meeting announced for Monday night. The mountain in labor biough* forth a mms and the eff.irts of the Monu ment Board seem very likely to result in a miff, too. At each of their meetings we hear that Mr. Al L*-e. late Secretary of the Board, has i>een sum uiomd to give an account of certain books and papers which, it seems, they cannot lay their hands on Mr At Lee ha- informed them that his resigna tion and the keys of the office were long since placed In the hands of the Mayor, and lie refers them to that functionary for satisfaction. Never Ihtl?-ss they have again summoned Mi A liefort tl ??in at the adjourned meeting on Monday. .Mr. Allirr. W" believe, replies to their affectionate invitation, that any communication h?

The workman have made considerable progress in laving down the bricx pavement under the n? w pait W ould it not be a good plan to have some of the l?aks -topped hi the roof of the old building itself ' There is great need of some such expenditureof the Corporal ion's fund* uj>on tlia" ilasshal structure The money should not b? appropriated re< klessly,however; thereshould toe some regaid paid to the venerable n> Id of moss which grows so luxuriantly upon that roof It has been there ?o long now that it* right to occu py the elevation which it has assumed, would hardly lie disputed by anybody. If .heleaksare to lie stopped, we adiure the person who may be appointed to the task, to spare that uioss. Tue City Farm ?I'nder the management of the active lntendaiit. John R. CJueen, Esq.. the expense of the farm is likely to decrease; the im provements made without cost to the city, and the levenu** from the gardens are evidence of his attention to the duties of his position. At present the Intendant la*>ors under disadvantages The want of proper buildings iu which to confine the prisoners after their work on the field has been concluded, inert?ii. the difficulty of keeping them safe, and with all the watchfulness of the Intend" jint and his assistant prisoners fri-quentlv escape The poor are coiupaiatively well provided for; the building for their accommodation though Miiaii is very clean, well ventilated,and sufficient for the present numiier.

Tiik River.?It was found, on examination of the Long Bridge after the connection was made between the two broken parts, that other portions of the bridge, between the draw and abutments, were very weak, and at one point positively dan gerous. One section, which was repaired in !-.r>3, was discovered lo have been very superficially executed. Some of the stringers, which were rotten at that time, and should have l>eeu taken out and others sul?stiiuted, were found lo have been strengthened up by three-inch joists The old stringers by this time having all rotted away, left the whole weight of the planking to be sus tained by these joists. \\ hen it was discovered by Mr. Church that this section was in so dan gerous a condition, it was a difficult matter to get the men to go under the bridge to repair it It"is almost int tedible how the set lion has held up so long, with so slight a sustaining power. Mr Church expects to have the work finished, or nearly so, to-day.
