Aksivkrsary Exbrhsks of Lafaykttk Institute.?The entertainment at Willards' Hall, j last evening, stands, without exception, as the first of all the school exhibitions ana closing exercises in the city this year. The hall was densely crau-ded, and the audience gave the most positive indication of their interest, approval, and appreciation of theentire performance by the breathless stillness which pervaded the room Prof Loom Is stated that the exercises of the evening were not to be regarded ** iti?ram fffmt but rather the result of a desire on the part of the young ladies to have a private entertainment for tbeir own pleasure, in the school-room, unknown so htm. On hi* part, unknown t?> them, he had secured this hall that the friends of the young ladies might be better accommodated Of the thirtv-ti ve pupils wbo were to appear as ?peakers, nearly all were entirely unaccustomed tosj>euk in public, The composition of all the parts was remarkably good, and most excellently delivered. Tbe enunciation was clear, distiuct, and slow. No examination could have better brought out tbe real characters of the principal and teachers of this institute.

The examination of Primary No. C. originally intended for the lwth of the month, was necessarily postponed until the 27th, in consequence of the death of the teacher, Mrs Margaret Freeman, a lady who has been engaged iu the public scboolsof our District since 1-51, and whose worth iu that eanaritv *?????? tfder.t of not exaggerating when we state that a more competent, energetic, and scrupulous person in the discharge of her duties cannot be found. The little subjeeta of her care manifested, on the day of examination, that something bad occurred to interfere with the usual routine; the customary relief of the tedium of the exercises (the inerry song) was omitted, and, dressed in tLe habiliments of woe, the pupils of Primary No. 6 rather submitted to than enjoyed the operatious of the evening.
