LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tut P cblic 5*chools ?An adjourned meeting oftbe Board of Trustee* of the Public Schools held at the City Ilall yesterday afternoon, to take Into consideration the animal report of the Secretary. whirh had lieen read ami referred to a special committee for examination at the last meetiug. _ There were present, besides the President,!*. Yorke AtLee. and the Secretary. S. A H. Mc Kiru. Messrs. WlUtii, Pearson. Polk, Magruder and Pendleton. The report was read and adopted. Mr P?*ir<on noroinHt^d Mi** i*arah Re kv off a* sub-assistant cf the femal- department of tbe Fourth DMrict School; confirmed Mr McKim spoke upon thesubjer.t of a musical text book to he adopted and u*ed in the Public Schools. He stated that he bad examined a book which Mr. Daniel had proposed to introduce into the schools oxer which be had charge, and found It to tie in every respect a proper and thorough ru dimentary work, lie proposed to have the said wot k adopted Into all the schools whe e music was taught. Mr Magruder objected to the proposition as being preuiature. Mr. Wilson thoucht that the adoption of a wo'k on music in the wlionls of this city was highly improper, inasmuch a* the City Counoils had not ret mnde any provision for the establishment of music as a branch of education; he suggested that no more be done with regard to tl;e subject until tbe Corporation should take some action in the matter. So tbe subject was dropped informally. The Chair railed the attention of the Hoard to an error which appeared in the list of books, pub lished in a city paper, stating that he knew not who gave the editor of that paper the authority to publish au imperfect list. He pointed out the f.k*t that Worcester's S|*ller, which appeared in that list, wxs not yet published, and would not I** oflt for six weeks He thought the committee on books should have examined, with a view to correct such errors in the list contained, he did not understand bow lie committee could have made a decision upon the list in the face of all the facts; h?? thought the committee could not have examined it xrerv searchingIy to have overlooked ?o essential a point Mr Magnifier thought the most Important duty of the Bon d consisted in a judicious selection of IjOuka for the use of the schools; if the liook w u? ou the list, and not yet published, it surely could not have l>een examined l?v the committee; he moved that Worcester'# Speller be strickeu from the list; carries!. ? Mr Pearson wished to know what the und?t stand nji was in the Hoard In relation to the Dic tionary which had l?een adopted bv the Hoard to be used In the schools. lie knew that the Board bad formerly decided npon the u*e of Worcester's school edition, but he had learned that Worcester's book was used in the primaiy schools only, and the pupils were taught to prouounee according to that standard, yet when they were admitted into the district schools they were introduced to Web ster'# Dictionary, which in many respectsdiflVred from Worcester's. The Chair stated that Worcester's was used a* a pronouncing dictionary in the district schools, and that Webster'a large Dictionary was provided for all the diatrlct schools as a book of reference, it Ivlng preferable to Worcester's in the number and precision of the definitions. Some discussion here arose upon the sobjeet of the list of books to be used in the public schools. Mr Peudleton stated that the committee who had beeu appointed to examine and report upon the list had never done so, according to tLeir own statement; he thought that if the committee ne glected their duties as members of the Board, the only working man on that committee who had rU/ne his best to examine the list and report "p<>n it should not be censured by the Board. The Secretary, who was the only member it seemed, who had interested himself in the matter suf ficiently to make any examination of the list was. it would seem, under the imputation of having transcended his duty The Chair made reply that the question of the liat of books was now decided, but that he and others. members of the Board, werestrnek t;t the tme the list had been reported upon by the words of the Secretary, who had used the term "the committee u*nmmou?l^ i>yort." It now turns out that no member of the committee except the Secretary had anything to do with the adoption of the list. Mr Magruder said that be had not made any remarks In relation to the matter which were un called for. But he was satisfied that the commit tee had neglected their duty. He knew that tor merly the committee of examination used to meet and consult as many as four or five times upon the adoption of the list, and it was considered an Im portant function by the Board. He did not defcire to reflect on any individual of the committee.but a duty of this nature should be properly dis charged. . ... Mr. Polk moved to reconsider the vote by whKh the list had been adopted, and have It referred again to the committee The Chair stated that no one now found fault wuh the list; but the discussion had arisen bv a member wishing to vindicate another member from an implied fault. The thing was now deci- | tl. d. and the Boaid satisfied. Ti e Chair then presented tbe report of the pro ceedings of the Board of Trustees of Normal Schools, and tbe regulations adopted at the first meeting held at Madison, Wisconsin, July 15th, 1-67, together with the laws creating the same. Tbe Clair stated that the Legislature of that state had pas-ed a law giving '23 pe- centum of the p:oeeed* of thesaleof swamp lands granted t'ueui by Congress to establish noriii.il schools for the ediualioa of teachers lie said the proceed ings of that board would be useful hereafter to tiie board, in many respects. The report was put on file; and. on motion of Mr Pearson, the Boaid adjourn, d w/i< Jit. Firks.?About two o'clock this morning a de structive flre occurred on the corner of t ^ and I streets. Island, which entirely consumed the shoe slureitf Mr. Spates, standing on the corner, and the dwelling house of Mr. Poulton, next floor, t>e*ides destroying a he* unfinished building, which was being biilt by Mr. Tell Tbe store of Mr. Spate* was a small one-story frame, and h>s loss is estimated at$7lio. The loss ta $l,(Jut>. covered by ;:n Insurance of {*600. Mr. Tell loses 964RI, and is uninsured The lire cora|>auies were ou the spot very soon after the fire bioke out. The American Hook and ladder Company were active in extinguishing the flames, and also other fire companies that re mained on the ground until tbe flames were en tirely extinguished. About 12 o'clock an alarm was caused by the burning of a f'ame dwelling on M st eet. near the Navy Yard. The house belonged to B. Glrer, and was occupied by a German family. The flreni^n were called out early in th<* night by a false alarm that originated iu the Fifth Ward, uear the Capitol. Thi Rivxs ?T he schr. Commerce arrived yes terday at the mouth of the canal from Port De posit, freighted with lumber. At Gait A Young's wharf, arrived schr. F.ldo rado. Capt.

At Riley's, arrived schr Ready, Capt. Call* ?* ban. from Philadelphia, with "5 tons of cool for 11 Fowler The steamer Maryland arrived up at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, bringing one bundled and thirty passengers The Old Dominion Guards who were expected to arrive by tbe Maryland, did not coiue up; the caune for the change in their p'.ans is not stated. The Maryland passed of) Nanjeiuoy Reach, a la-ge square rig, upwaid boui.d Also, off White Point, passed upward bound, a larg- brig under full sail. The Powhatan in her passage up the river last night, |?a.s?ed a targe numl<er o: r-oasteis, and a large three-masted schooner, bound up. A ContosiTT ?Some days since we noticed that a type founder at Buffalo had completely en cased a ripe jear in a cout of copper by the elec tiotj pe process, and expected to preserve the f. uit for future generations We have now before ns a singularly beautiful specimen of this nature, being a pe.' r with its accompanying foliage o peifectly encrusted with the metal as loappear like acopper pear, and yet with every feature of the fruit and fibre of the foliage represented with the accuracy of a daguerreotype. It was executed some three years ago by Mr George Matblot. electroc bemist, Const Survey ofllce. Curiously enough, a worm enclosed in the pear at the time it received its me tallic bath, managed, not only to survive, but to eat up the fruit and make his eiit at the blossom end, waving tbe thin shell of copjier.

IMPROVEMENTS A BOUT THI Kxkcctivr Max. siojt ? la pursuance of an appropriation madeby Congress, at it* last session, for a corservatoiy and stable ai>d various other improvements about the President's House, the plan* of the said im provement* made by Mr. Clark, architect, were adopted, and the new stable has been erected in the south end of the old flower gardens. The building is large and commodious, having sta ble room for eight horses, a large room capable of containing four carriages, an extensive harness room, wide passage through the centre, and hav ing oil the second floor a large room to contain hay. besides two rooms fitted up in comfortable stvle. to accommodate the President's groom and coachman. The building is constructed in mod ern style. and is fitted with every con veil ieu< ?* that the ingenuity of mart could well conceive. Great regard is paid in its construction to ventil lation, by the construction of a cold-air chamber, which conveys the air from without through an iron grating fn front of each horse, while through narrow windows in the rear, the air. an fast as used, passes out. The floors are puddled down in clay cement: and. as an experiment, oneof the floors is to be of gutta percha, which is said to be well suited for such purposes, when made of the proper consistency. The water is conveyed froin the old stable pump by means of lead pipe to all the rooms, and, passing off underneath, is con veyed away by a sewer leading into the main sewer of the grounds. It has been feared that the construction of the stable at this point would mar in some degree the beauty of the flower gardens ; but the constrnc tion of the new conservatory at the western ex tremity will give occasion for the removal of the flower'gardens from the present locality to the grounds adjoining the new conservatory, and now used as a vegetable garden, and the old flower garden will be converted into a vinery and fruit garden. The new conservatory is in course of construction under the charge of J. B. Turton, builder, and is to be one hundred and seventy feet In extent by thirty-two feet wide and eigh teen feet in height. It will have a main and pri vate entrance from the west end of the Presiden tial Mansion?one leading from the Congiess dining room ai.d the other from the private rooms of the President. It Is intended to have this con servatory filled with the choicest green-house plants that caa tie obtained from all parts of the world. It is to be heated by means of a steam apparatus, from the manufactory of Nasun, of New York, who furnished the furnace last year for the Piesidcnt's House, which has given en tire satisfaction?being self-regulating and eco nomical in point of consumption of fuel. The grounds surrounding the Kxeeutive Man sion never looked in lietter condition than at pres ent. giving evidence of the taste ami wood judg ment of Air. John Watt, the President's ga.dener. Thk Tti.kr ahd Scott DirticrLTT.?Mr. Walter Lenox ha* issued the following card in relation to an aifair which has occasioned some talk : '? Having heard sundry versions of a personal difficulty between Major Henry B. Tyler, of Washington city, and Mr Robert E. Scott, of Fauquier county, Virginia, in which I am named as the ajjent and responsible friend of one of the parties, I think proper to atate that on the Pith of August last, at the request of Major Tyler, 1 waited on R. K. Scott, F.sq , and informed hiin that Major Tyler had placed in my hands a note to be delivered to him. and that it was induced by the course which Mr. Scott had pursued towards Major Tv'.er in his speech before the Criminal Court of the District of Columbia in defence of the rioters at the municipal election held on the first Monday of June past. Without p'esenting or announcing the spec ific character of the note which I was authorized to deliver, but in the exercise of that just discretion claimed by myself as due to ail parties concerned. 1 deemed it proper first to express to Mr. S. a regret that any hostility should exist between gentlemen of their hign standing and friendly relations, and that it was my earnest wish to prevent but serious issue >>etweeu them 1 then informed him that Major Tyler felt deeply aggrieved at the course pursued by Mr. S. on that occasion. Mr. S. expressed his surprise and re gret that such was the case, and that lie was uot conscious of having transcended the privileges of counsel; that if Major Tyler would point out any offensive remarks .ie would cheerfully witlidraw them. I remarked it was the general tenor and manner of his address of whichiWajor Tyler com plained. as injurious to his professional and per sonal character. Mr. S. then said that he dis claimed all purpose of intending to reflet t inju riously or unkindly upon the character of Major Tyler as a gentleman or his conduct as an officer; and that in his speech he had aimed to exonerate the officers of the Marine Corps from censure, as they acted under the orders of their superiors. It it proper to state that Mr. S. distinctly stated that in making these explanations of his purposes and feelings, he by no means intended to ai>audon or abate his rights or avoid his duties as counsel in this particular case.

Mr. Editor: The remarks in your paper of Monday touching the organization of the public schools of Washington, prompt me to say ??f those in Georgetown that they have commenced with a greatly augmented prospect of usefulness. The fine rooms of the old church, and tbeschool furniture have been handsomely cleaned and painted ; and order and system are to be the future watch-words of the teachers and guardians. Those who have heretofore stood aloof from the schools, are seeking the advantages of the new order of things ; and the guardians have deter mined to order and maintain strict discipline, and to dismiss from the schools all who are un worthy to enjoy their benefit, that those who are worthy, and are desirous to enter, may come in ; and thevare neither fr-w nor far between. The application of this determination has already caused the dismissal of one. A visit froin any of our citizens who feel an interest In education, will amply re[>ay them for the trouble.

The family were startled by the report of a p.stol. aud kuId); to his room found him in the agonies of death, from theefiects of a l?a!l which had entered the left breast, under the heart The party had h.ul this pistol (a Colt's revolver) with them on their excursion, and on their return young Voss had plar-?d it in the left-breast pocket of his coat It is supposed that in detaching the pistol from the p*s ket. the trigger (which was a light one) caught, resulting in an accidental dis charge w ith this deplorable result. The deceased was in his2Jd year. Serimmaok at Brow*'* Hotel ?Last night, soon after the arrival of the 7 o'clock train of cars from Baltimore, two travellers entered the door of Brown's Hotel together, engaged in a dispute a?>ont some money which traveller No I claimul to have loaned traveller No 2 for the purpose of gambling on some southern steamboat. and which money had not been returned to No. 1. They soon afterwards clinched, and commenced a ?ruitie. both parties making free use of loud and not very choice expletives. After the parties weia separated, No. 1 discovered that in the melee some adroit thief had managed to steal his watch. He think* Washington is rather an unpl -asai.t city to stop in so far as his experience goe<, aud enunciates a fixed purpose to go "hum" as speedily as possible Tin WAs8i*fcTO?i Vaoeri are to have a pic nlc and target tiring at Ruppera, next to fhe Park Hotel, on Monday next.
