|OCA I, INTELLIGENCE. Hoard or Trustees of PcblicSchools ? An adjourned ^meeting of the Boaid of Trustees of Public School* was held at the room of the Board of Aldermen, City Hall, yesterday evening, at 5 o'clock. The President, 5*. Y. AtLee, In the Chair. Present, beside the President, Dr. S. A H. WC Kim, (Secretary.) Messrs. Magruder, Pendleton, Polk, Wilson. Pearson and Harkness The Board was eallcd to order, and the Secre tary read the minutes of the preceding meeting, which were approved of. Messrs Atl.ee. Davis and Polk, the examina tion committse. reported on fourteen candidates, of whom Miss Abel. Miss Terry. Miss Reed, Miss Thompson and Miss Ball were favorably returned to the Board. Mr. Pearson asked 1f it was understood that pupils who have been in the Public Schools are to (k* considered as members of the schools with out being provided with tickets. Mr Magruder moved to get over that by giv ing all old pupils who are present on the first day of the new (tension admission without tickets, requiring all tardy pupils to go through the usual formula Mr. Wilson supported this motion, and thwight it the most prudent plan, but suggested that all pupils who may mike application on the first day of the session have a right te admission whether old pnpils or not. Mr. Pearson said that that xrnn what he desired, as. if all the old pupils were admitted without certificates, children who had been waiting for vacancies. perhaps for months, would have no chance to get into the schools. Mr. AtLee moved that all those pupils in good standing at the close of the scholastic year, with those on the register, be admitted. Mr. Wilson thought that it would be better to l.-ave the whole thing to the sub-Board, who Wc.e perhaps the best judges of the claims of pnpils. Mr. l'ramon move*! to amend the rule so as to read. '?that all children at the beginning of the \?ar in* admitted on a ticket only, without regasd to the register.*' Mr. Pendleton said that the use of the Public Schools was to perfect the education of pupils of the Primary Schools, and. if children were to be indiscriminately admitted into the Public School*, without regard to their respective posi tions therein, it would be suicidal to the Public S?'!iools. Mr. At I.ee modified his resolution so as to read (!> follows: Kesolval, That all pupils appearing on the first d iv. at the commencement of the scholastic year, shall be received by the teacher without a written ]>ermit. and that should there thereafter be any vui ancv. those previously registered shall be en titled thereto. The lesolution was then adopted. The Board then went into the election of teach ers to till the vacancies which were leftsyp^u at the last meeting; aud Miss Anna N.

About 11 o'clock last night, the neighborhood of Louisiana avenue and Sixth street was startled by the cry of '? Murder!" 44 Watch!" Ac. Offi cerst WPrt. early at the scene, and found that a tn< lee was in progress, participated in by three brothers of the name of Pollock, in company with "i not her person, who assaulted a man named Bay. Eggh-son, who was quietly walking home. One or more of the party are clerks in the Depart ments. Eggleson was knocked down with a ? ane by one of them, and another snapped a pis tol at him. He then ran for the officers, and. coming in contact with one of the Pollocks in List's Saloon, made an assault on him, but fur ther diffi ulty was prevented by the interference < f Justice Donn. With the assistance of the A uxiliary Gnanl, order was restored, and the 1'uiiix ks started for their lodgings, and the other parties sepa'ated. Iri a few minute* Edward A. Pollock was ob served eoiiiing fiom his lxtarding-hou.se on Penn sylvania avenue and walking with his brother toward the club-room on Ijouisiana avenue, ut tering words calculated to lead to another diffi culty They were followed by Messrs. Twotney and Drummond of the Auxiliary Guard : knd the Poilo? ks, coming in contact with Eggleson, who w is w.th Justice Donn and others talking of the atlray, they asked Eggleson if he was the man who coin in itted the assault and battery on one of them. Eggleson replied "Yes," and Kdward A l'olloek drew a California bowie-knife, with which he had just armed himself at his board ing-house, and ran at one of the Guards, who re treated a short distance on Louisiana avenue, when the Guard tired at Pollock, who imme diately turned and ran down Sixth street. Two pistol shots were tlred at him as he ran, and the crv to stop him was raised. C.ti-tain Mills, of the Auxiliary Guard, coining up the street, ran across to intercept him, and 1' < k made a cut at himwith his knife, but the captain was a few inches out of his reach. He ran t > his boarding house, where he was arrested, he Laving hurriedly defied his clothing and got into l?d He was taken to the office of Justice Donn, ? i?o. alter hearing all the evidence, held Edw d A i'oi'.ock to l<ail in R3MI for his appearance at the next term of th- Criminal Court. <?*her a-rests will be made. At the instance of Pollock, Eggleson was put !' security for the assault made at List's ?a 1 H?fl The weapon which Pollock tried to nse on ' ptain Mills is iD the magistrate's possession; its weight is one pound five ounces. The force of t(.e blow at the captain was so great that Pollock whirled u> ar!y around as the knife missed its aim. 1 me V. r?rkkWham vie* ?That part of our ' >. designated as above, is constantly the scene of bus:nes* activity and progress.
