R*LK?l?rs ?On Sunday tbe congregation* at tbe van., ji cburrbes were quite lar^e, especially during ibe morning and evening services Id the afternoon a high wind prevailed, wilt tbe usual accompaniment of cloud* of dust, which prevented many from attending that portion of the diy'a service. Foundry Cknptl ?Dr. Kdwards (tba putor) pre*ched In th* morning from 5th verae of 1Mb chapter of John: "I am the vine, ye are the brancbea " The Doctor began by atating that union with Ch'lat ia the leading Idea contained In tbe text, hat that the apostle Illustrate* this vital Idea by figures different from tboae emploved by Christ 'For example?the connection between the head and body, or Wtween the foundation and the varlons parts of the building; bat bare the Divine Being, beholding the golden vine which overhung the gate of the temple, or pointing to the beautiful vineyards which skirted hia wav between the temple and Mount Olivet, exclaimed is tbe language of the text, '-1 am the viae, ye are' tbe branches" by which iiiustratiea he ihowi the dependence of the branch on the vine; or that of man upon hit God. The Drvtor then proceeded to Inquire in what this union with Christ consists Itiacloaer than the relation of disciple and teacher There can be no CbriitUuity without Chrlat; h" la the center whence Ita life flaws Aa Ood did not. after having created the universe. launch it ont into apace without any unport. but was hi mself in it to rule it. ao he did not complete the ayatem of Christianity and give !t to man thna, (of itaelf.) bnt he himseif was In It. farming its very center and life. Then,again, thia ia something more than a mere tactual relation. It ia not something which depends on our ^4^ mere co^ita't with a^cr:imenta, ma some think, but it ia a spiritual uniou? something bv which 1, as a moral being, can (eel that I have sinned, and that there is no human power that can ave me from that heavy load. 1 must be pardoned br that being whom I have offended, and have tne evidence of thia pardon written upon iny soul Then let u? obaerve the evidences of thia union. Thev can all be found in the expression b?*reth fruit,'" for the deud branch beareth onlv a nominal connection with the*rin? Socne or theae consist in a renewed heart, indi cated by joy. peace, forbearance. gentleness, patience, lore, kr which all form a diadem, glit terin^ and smrkling with beauty. Ther- are also practical fruits which flow from thia union, for Christ did not remain in inactivity, bot went about doinac good Conduct ia tbe beat exponent "f a man a character, after all; for Chriat s*ys Keep my commandments Finally, let ua observe some of the means by which thia tin on is pre?e-rvcd By faith, by the means of grace, aad by all tbe virtue* which constitute a Christian chjr?cter There ! ? salutary discipline to which God subjects all thoae who are members of bis bndv. and he often employs special providences irj this respect. If God sees something in me which divide* my heart or affectiuus. by his providence he will take that soimthin:; away and prune me (so to speak) For instance. Job. after be pasted t nronjrti that long, dark ordeal of suffering. wii a better man Tbe doctor, after enlarging wpon this point, closed with the inquiry, bow many of tboae present would to-day ask bod to prone their heart*, and a brief exhortation to his hearers to become faithful friends of Christ At ike Capitol ? Re* Thomas H Stockton, Chaplain to the House, delivered tbe fourth sermon of a series from tbe same text:?"For he h'th made him to be sin for as, who knew no to,"' Ac. On this occasion the principle of tornpm\ation for tbe suffering of the Innocent on account of tbe guilty waa further illustrated . first, from the Bibliral history; and secondly, from the history of the church since the close of the Scriptural canon. In C9onection with the Bible the speaker proceeded to consider the distinctive natural and spiritual characteristics of this life at four epochs, or under four dispensations: ? !, of the antediluvian patriarchs, 2, of tbe postdiluvian patriarchs; 3, of the Jewish worthies: and, t. of tbe Christian apostles and disciples Then, In connection with the rhttrck, the cas?-s of the primitive fathers, the medieval confes?ors, and the Lutheran reformers, with others earlier and l-?ter, w?re reviewed In like manner. So the conclusion was reached th-tt life, regarded as a true and fall compensation for the goffering of the innocent, must he pnnt?mnij(?^ ?? ?'- ? earthly and temporal, but also a* heavenly and ettnu. Rising, therefore, to a vision of the better conntrv and the better city, their natural and spiritual (glory and social communion and blisa. the real and abundant compensation was fonnd there, and the congregation was exhorted to and secure a proper Inheritance in that sinless. sorrowless. deathless, home At the rloee of th* heavenly vision it was said : -'O, if in some pause?If we c?n suppose a pause In rich felicity?we ecnld break the silence with a voice just from the earth, and ask them if life be in truth a sufficient compensation for the natural s ill rings of taeir ttrst but brief estate in the fl?-sh, how would they answer' Nay. we could not ask them; could not think of asking them We would look upon them and tremble. We would look upon Him and fall prostate and adore And wa*-n with His blessing ?M1 brightening our f-ices, arid glowing like all heaven in our souls, we should find ourselves again, by some saintly or angelic ministry, broughtdown to the sunshine a.?d down to - he cloud-shadow, and down to the earth, and should tread once more on this hollow ajunding and s-pulchral mould, ruethinks even he tombs would look like porcbee of peace, aud ' h? vale of tears' would glisten like a morning paradise, with all lt? dews just waiting for the A'lnrlse; and universal thanksgivings, like the warbling of a world of happy birds, would ceaselessly rise from all hearts and froin all lips, for the ineffable privilege cf passing through the sufferings of 'the life that now isT to the immensity andtternity of felicity In that'which is to come.' " Trinity Ckirtk?In the morning the Rev. Dr. HutXer. r-rtor. discoursed from a part of the 21st *ef? of the 10th chapter of St. Mark ? Come, tike up the cr<>*a and follow inc." There wm great ?i.jniii:anre in the expression. Take up the r r?ss They must not only bear the cross when it wa? laid upon them, but they must take It up when It w?a placed by their aide. Christ's wn* not an Indispensable surrender to the eross '*1 laid down my life of myself," was his declaration. He came to the cross, he gave himself to the cross, and so must they, if tbey would follow him By the sides of each of them lav the cross. The question was put to each, "Will you comr and Uke it up, or shall it be laid upon you." Those who refused to take it up might, for a time go forward and seem to br-tr no cross, but at last It would be laid upon them in a way that it would become a sailing burden It would then bo a dead weight on the unstrung muscles of the soul; but when it was taken up, love seeing Jesus L^ whom it followed, going forth with the glowing H> ciergies of the soul, it would press on steadily ?ind-r the burden it fainted, but it did not <f!?, " It staggered, but it did not fall Then the eroea did not gall the soul.

Concurring generally in the improvements suggested by the warden, and esp?;lally as to the danger and want of economy in the mode of lighting the premises, the board beg leave also to urge the prupriety'of an appropriation by Congress for introducing water into the pemtentiary from the Potomac aqueduct The pipes for transmitting the water extend to the walls of the prison, and can be mad"1 immediately available A liberal supply of this pure and refreshing element will conduce In a high degree to the physical comfort and health of the convicts, ana thus %ucu a?uprrfliivfB 11 Will IlKf wise prevent tbe accumulation In tbe offices and conduits of the buildings of matter offensive and generating disease. promote the convenience of the kitchen and laundry, chicfly of tbe latter, where water decomposing soap and unfit for washing,isnow u*ed?be a* efficient safeguard against tbe destrur tion of life and property by lire, and a souh-?of power in it* application to machinery In closing their report, the board take pleasure iu expressing their approbation of tbe ital and energy of the warden in tbe discharge of his duties \ ery respectfully, your obedient servants, Fetrr Forcr, ) Gkohgk Pabkib > Inspector* R.

On taking possession of my office I regretted to notice an almost entire want of discipline; not that I wish to cast any imputation upon the gentleman who preceded me as warden, for the want of capacity or competency, but the uncertainty of his retaining his office, with some other causes, became known among tbe convicts, which rendered them reckless and insolent to an alarming extent. I immediately issued my orders to the deputy warden and tne officers under Ms direction, which they very promptly, resolutely, and humanely carried into execution; and it became evident in a short time that we Lad obtained a strong foothold toward a proper and safe discifiine In this part much credit is due to my son, tie deputy warden, and the guards, for their fearless and gentlemanlike conduct, fearing no consequences, as it has appeared, in the faitufui performance of their duties in many trying moment* The labor of the convicts is at present under the contract system for a term of years \V ith all due respect to your legislation on this subject, I would say that not only the small amount of compensation is insufficient for the daily support and maintenance of the convicts, but that tne system of contracts in this prison Is Incompatible with a perfect and prcpe; disci pi ne.

It will be obeerved by this statement that my expend, tiire* have exceeded that of some former "year# For fear that I, a? the disbursing agent, should Le accused of extravagance, an imputation which I have striven against with all the energy I poKsess. I would respectfully otter the following explanation in extenuation for my conduct. On the 1st of October, l#js, iny predecessor made out bis annual report. On the 1st of January, Is59, 1 entered up?Q my duties as warden of this Institution, and from that date up to the present month I paid accounts presented against the prUoa of the former year of "twelve hundred dollars," which have been included in my expenditures. I found the convict* much in need of clothing, having to wear their winter clothing for eight months in the year without change; and the in?tertal being formed of stout, cheap woolen goods, It is almost an impossibility to make them last, even by repairing them, for the following winter The rapid increase of prisoners, some unexpectedly arriving from the neighboring States, make a larger number than ever befoie conflned at one time in this prison The nature of the laboring work of a portion of the convicts renders absolutely necessary a change of clothing Many of them were accustomed to undergarments bef >re their couviction, ai.d in the want of which seemingly suffered from any slight change of the weather, so as to prevent them from workiug; therefore. 1 i? it necesaarv with th* * of the physician, to furnish each convict with cheap, coarse cottou underclothes, which, In a short time, had Its desired effect These all tend to the increase of my exp?nditures. Immediately after 1 took possession, I ordered a thorough renovation of the cells, the beds and bedding tn be removed, and cleansed of the bed vermin These, however, are, in a great measure, to be attributed to the wooden I*dsteads, the most of them made by the couvicts themselves, from the old material gathered around the building. and are rough and imperfectly put together, as they are insecure and unsightly; then again, the wooden galleries that surround the cells. In the rrsivices of which the vermin find a safe and comfortable harbor, rendered It a herculean task In order to keep the entire bnilding in a state of cleanliness daring the summer months, the ceils were cleansed weekly, and some oftener. To do this, I have had to reserve a large force of hamIs from the workanops, a number sufficient for a much larger prison, thus making another great drawback Ufy>n the income of the prison. Theee men are principally sent for ashort period, and are wholly unfit for any branch of trade. lu the year IKt5 the warden commenced the manufacture of Iron Bedsteads, and completed about a doses. Sim ? that time to the prt*ent It has beM abandoned hot **m in this aiim 11 number we perceive that, after they have received a coat of paint, they are but little infested with reruitDi And, in my opinion, if the prison were emirrty provided with Iron bedsteads, the great rll would bo removed. I therefore moat respectfully uk an appropriation to purchase 14) Iron bedsteads. The means of lighting the building are very expensive, and are dsngerour. We are at present light'.ng with pine and etbenaloila,tbe expUsUe nature of whirl. readers tbem Mfnfully taugerous, owing to the heaVy wooden gaiter ts surrounding the cells. In case of lire every convict would misersbly perish before they could be rc? , L -ased from their cells 1 therefore would respectfully ask an approprl* i a iou for lighting the building and yard with gas. 1 The gas company have already extended their gss pipe* down Four-and-a-baif street. and intend extending them to the northern boundary cf the arsenal ground*, adjoining tl>e prison; ao, with little expense, we would be relieved of this great danger attending our present mode of lighting, and greatly reduce the expense. The pact rammer proved to *?e the moat trying and disastrous, in consequence of the amount of tckness prevailing. wL cb raged for a time to such an alarmhig extern aa to alnr><*t cause an entire so* pension of business. I spared neither Isbor or expense In this trving moment, and. through the goodness of Divine Providence and the unceasing aklllful attentions of the phvsician of the prison, Dr. Garnett. we conquered the diaeaae In regard to the other portions of the prison, f would refer you to the reports of the physician. 1 matron, clerk, and chaplain * Before closing, allow me. gentlemen, to return yon mv grateful thanks for the many acts of r.ourtear and kindneaa shown me. Respectfully submitted by r P To be published hereafter Tub Amytal SchoolExamination* ?Theannual examinations of the public schools commenced on Monday by the Trustees. Second District, Primary Sohool No 1, Miss Isabella Acton, teacher.?This school, taught in one of the upper rooms of the public school house in Judiciary Square, is composed entirely of girls, who appeared in such neatness of attire and manifested such propriety of deportment ss to elicit in the very outset expressions of admiration from a number of the visitors The examination was conducted chiefly by Mr. Miller, Trustee of the Second District; the'Mayor. Mr. Ober. of the City Council, and their accomplished teacher, also taking [tart. Mr Daniel, their instructor in vocal music, was also present, and aided in that exercise; of their proficiency in which delightful accomplishment he may well feel proud. After some words of encouragement, intended and calculated to relieve all improper embarrassment, and to give needful assurance to diffidence. the school, which is arranged in five class**, was examined in reading, orthography, (including illustrations of the various sounds of the letters.) selling, punctuation, abbreviations, exercises in dictation, arithmetic, geography, English grammsr, and history. The tediounness of th?*?p ?>*?* cises was relieved. at suitable intervals. by a sweet song. cither nolo, duett, or full chorus, and though necessarily extending throusrh some live hour* they evidently maintained their interest to the close; and afforded moat gratifying evidence of faithfulness and efficiency on the part of the teacher, and diligence and rapid improvement on the part of the pupils. The copy-books also exhibited that neatness and progress which would naturally be looked for In such a company. The presentation ol beautiful boqueta to the Mayor, to the examining trustee, and to the teacher, formed an appropriate episode and conclusion to these gratifying exercises As might be expected, this school has its full complement of 6<) scholars; and there have during the year been, at one time as many as 14 registered applicants more than could be admitted. It was gratifying on this, as on so many former occasions, to see the city functionaries manifesting such practical interest in this mreat cause; and that those whose duty it is to legislate on this subject, as well as prrents. guardians, other teachers, and friends, were found encouraging both teacher and pupil* by their firesence; the only regret being that the very limted and contracted space occupied by this school did not afford sitting or even standing room for a considerable number who sought admittance. It has long been the impression of the trustees and others that the entire second floor of this building hould be devoted to the female department of the District School; and the necessity of providing for Primary No I a more spacious, better lighted and ventilated room will at once be apparent to all who exaiuiue the premises Primary No '2, flrst department, (male.) Mis* Lucy Randolph, teacher, was examined by Wm. S. Fort. This school Is located on Mass avenue and Fourth st At the commencement of the t?rm (September, l*Sd#,) the first and second departments of this school-house had crowd"*! within Its walls 1KJ scholars.which was 43 more than the number prescribed by the rules. By a rearrangement of the school, and the formation of Primary No i>. the number was re?lur.e<l tr, mi in ? ?-> partment. The school-room being upon the first floor, i* subject to much annoyance from the unruly boys in the neighborhood who do not attend any place of instruction. The school numbers on Its roll 62 scholars, ranging from 6 to 15 years old, most of whom were present at the examination; thev are divided into five classes, and are taught r-ading. writing, spelling, geography and arithmetic. The progress made by the pupil* during the past year i* highly creditable to scholars ana teacher. A readiness was evinced to answer promptly and correctly the varlou* questions proposed to them. In geography, arithmetic, and orthography; the reading was generally very good.

Her testimony reflected upon respect- I able persons, who she said visited the house. The Justice remarked upon the closing of the | evidence, mai it waa dii auly to send the case to court. It was notfor hlin to suppose what might be the motives of the witness; the jury would weigh testimony at the final bearing. The defendant-was required to give bail in for court.
