local irrgtlicgyct. liLwwinATio* o? tii* N?^ Hor?* Hall.? The writer of tUi ?u one of a rather numerous party who, per Invitation, werr present laat night to witness the trst lighting up of the new Hall of Representative*. The light was put on at 8 o'clock, and previous to that there vm some funny phllaiinering alone the dimly, tallow candle lighted pn**age* by benighted parties, who Mgi'ntrrrd their way with considerable solicitude, lest they should '? slnmp through'' a sky-light or something of that sort. Imagine the porty fairly a-te tabled in the ball, the ehill gloom of which put an efltrtual stopper on all efforts at the cheerful, ar conversational The flickering light shed down from a single torrh or two in the hands of the operators high ?ip in tne ceiling, served to obscurely outline the r*?t proportion* of the hall, and to bring out In ?ague relief the groups of spectators who stood silent and motionless in patient, half avre-strnck, ex re *tat ion Tt>?n. while all was grim, forbidding. PI uton Ic. at a signal, as if a higher power had said, ??let therr be light," the hall was suddenly tilled with a flood of the richest golden rays; every tongue waa loosed, and the walls of the great room la irly rang with shouts of delight At another *ign*l every light was extinguished, and the hall, by contrast, seemed darker than ever. And again the torch was applied, and by the singular process now for the ilr?t time introduced, the flre was seen leaping along the jets eddying in a thousand graceful <inuositiea until in the mar vellously short space of twenty seconds the en tire round was ignited And now for a few matter of fact details. The squares in the ceiling. 45 in number, are disposed in Ave rows, containing nine in each. Fach square (three feet in dimension) contains ?> burner*. or 1,360 burners in all. But In addi tion to this magnificent fund, the curved carrier* which lead the light to the squares are provided with jets to the immense number of 45.0UU. by which the light furnished by the square* can be almost indefinitely augmented. The carriers are ? obstructed of brass, and are not liable to cor rode. This novel and most successful mode of lighting is an idea of Capt Meigs The carriers and squares are each supplied with a t-inch mailt aud stop-cock To ensure a uniform flow two lengths of 4-inch inaius are curried round the entire sky-light, and froin tl?c*e run I '{?inch pipes connecting with and supplying the carrier and sqnares. Provision has been made for the expansions and contraction!! caused by the intense heat gen erated. The allowance made is aimut 4 inches on each line The whole I* suspended from the iron rafter* In such a inauner that a change of temperature cannot affect it. The length of the skylight is H., feet by lo feet wide. The gla*? (not yet in) will shield and ?dd greatly to the "beauty of the light. It being enamelled, and the centre piece* containing the roats-of-arms of each Slate, richly stained. The disagreeable glare consequent iipbn the use of exposed chande lier-btirners will thus t>e obviated, and the ettect at the same time much liner than by any other method. The lighting apparatus was manufactured by Cornel in* & Baker, of Philadelphia, from plans and tracings prepared under the direction of Capt. Meigs^and the difficult work of fluting this exten*ive apparatus through the entire build ing has been executed by the firm of J. \V Thompson, of this city, who have succeeded most satisfactorily, as all must admit who were present last night. The party present availed themselves of the opportunity to examine the details of the new Hall, though the time afforded was necessarily too short to enable them to obtain anything more tnan a cursory survey. Young America, who wa? represented there, is an imitative animal. He seated himself in the Speaker'* chair, threw his leg over the table, and squirted tobacco juice upon the delicately polished marbles with ail the easy ?elf-poosession of an old legislator. Tbcstiks <?r Prune Schools?The monthly meeting of the Board of Trustees of Public Schools was held in the Aldermen's room. City Hall, yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock. Present: The President, Col.

Bills of expense* of the First School District were presented and approved, and the Treasurer was authorized to causr them to be |?aid.

Mr Price presented the bill of the Washington Branch Railroad for transportation of furniture for Primary S hool No. I in the Third District; accepted. Expense Mils from the other School Districts were presented bythe Treasurer; and after being read, were ordered to be paid. Mr Ironside called the attention of the Board to bills of expense for keeping some ot the school house* in orner He *ugge*ted the fixing by the Board of a definite priM for such work, in vleyr of a disposition manifested by some of those em ployed to raise the price f,.r cleaning, and build ing fires, each succeeding bill being larger than the preceding one It was stated that there was an appropriation for each school, and that the charges made could not exceed the amount ap propriated A bill of Jacob KMber's for service* rendered as messenger of the Board was ordered to be paid. Mr. Wilson reported that Primary School No. 1 had l?een removed in consequence of a demand for higher rent from the own*-r. It was moved to go into the election of an as sistant teacher In Primary No. 1 in the Fourth Di*trict; carried. Mia. Mary Ague* Skidmore was nominated and unanimously confirmed. Mr. Ironside moved that the hour of meeting of the Board I* changed from 4 to 5 o'clock, p. in. Vote was taken upon the question, and there wa* a tie vote. The Chair suggested a compromise, and proposed half-past four; carried. And then the Board adjourned. The Coxc rat of the \Ye?ley Chapel Choir, la?t night, was successful, both In a musical and iu a pecuniary point of view The only fault to be f uind was in the length of the performance Twenty-four piece* i? rather a long programme, e?pe?ially when the performance of many of them ha* to be repeated, as was the case last night We suppose that the object was to give the audience the worth of th-ir money, and they certainly got it. | Among the liest of the performances by the | concert** r> wa* a l*eautiful duett by Miss'.\|et cher and Mr Daw*on ; solo (bas*ol by Mr Daw ?oa, one of Mozart'a sweetest Song*, called "Who """l" 'he path of duty" It was rendered by Mr. D in a style equal to almost any perform a ace of the kind we ever heard "The Mesarn-.i ger Bird.'' duett, by the |Mi**es Daniel, was ej rellent, of course.
