Esq., in the chair In taking his seat, the chairman gave bis views briefly, of the impression made upon him by the Breckinridge and Lane ratification meeting at the City Hall on Monday night. He said that, notwithstanding, all the government aDDllanrata there was but little genuine enthusiasm. and the shaft* of the orator*, instead of being directed against tbe 'fommon enemy," the Republicans, were clneflv aimed at Douglas and bis adherents He referred also to wbat he railed the scene at the White House, the President and one of his J*eoretsriea entering the political arena in behalf of the divided ticket, the former acknowledging that there was no regular Democratic nomination, and *~k?-latter concluding his harangue, not with an argument, but a sneer at " Abe Lincoln " On motion of Mr. \V. B Gary, it was Httoivtd, That the club would attend in a body tbe Bell and Everett ratification meeting, to be held at Karmington, Md , on Tuesday, the 17th inst , and m committee was appointed to make arrangements for the trip. Dr Thomu G Clayton reported that a committee bad waited on Joseph !*egar. Ksq . a distinguished member of theVirginla Legislature, and Invited him to address tbe club A prior business engagement prevented Mr. Se^ar from complying with the request, but be desired to assure the club that tbey had every reason to persevere in their good work: that Virginia might be relied upon for Bell and Everett by a handsome majority .the rank and Hie of the democracy being no longer willing to follow their scatterfd leaders Dr. C referred to what he termed the extraordinary fact, unparalleled In the anna)* of the rountrv, of the President of the United States derending from his high position to take part In the political strife of the aay. He had graciously k issued an indulgence,"' proclaiming to "the faithful-' that as there was no regular democratic pirty nomination, they might vote for either of the candidates' How gracious! how condescending !! Mr. J S. Gallaber remarked that his friend I)r. ( C , had omitted one Item connected with the Presidential 'Indulgence." It had been said of the Kmperor Napoleon, when a vote was about tn Ka ?r" ?? ? *' " .v w ?*cn III najitc UJWII vac qilPlllOn Ol A ruler, that it was proclaimed that "every man might vote as he pleased, but it was expected tbat he would vote the Emperor's ticket " The President gave a like privilege, but every day's new* informed us that every postmaster or other f>nblic officer, known or suspected to be a Dougas man. was decapitated, and the guillotine waa ready for further execution Mr. G did not like to be uncharitable to ward* hit democratic friends, in this, their dark hour of affliction, but he could not help remarking that it looked very much as if there was a design on the part of the aeceders to elect Lincoln President?for the verv purpose, perhaps, of having an excuse to dissolve the I nion At all events their movements were tending to tbat result, unless the masses should disregard their counsels, and rally for Bell and Everett. He was happy to say, in his capacity of Corresponding Secretary, that be bad information which satisfied him that the Union ticket would be ahead of all others in the electoral colleges, and he exhibited statistics in suonort nt , - ( I?? ? his opinion As a farther evidence that the aeceders were bent on mischief. or were '-hoping against hope," Mr G cited the fact that the President's branch of tbe democracy In Illinois had nominated Thos. M. Hope for Governor, against James C. Allen, (late Clerk of the House of Representatives.) the regular nominee This was evidently done to tike the State from Douglas and give it to Lincoln Mr. G. also referred to the fact that the seceders were fighting for an abstraction in their platform, whilst their Senators had dodged the issue, when Mr. Brown, of Mississippi. invited them to intervene" for the protection of slavery in Kansas Only three democrats voted for a practical test in regard to Kansas, whilst thirty of theiu voted in the negative. This proved that 1 they merely kept alive the issue to inflame the public mind in the South.

Tbe people were tired of being ruled by tbe demagogues, and on this occasion would act for themselves He felt perfect confidence that it now only needed a united effort on the part of the oppoisitlon ill Virginia to carry the State for the f'nion ticket by thousands. Three hearty cheers were then given for Bell and Everett, and the Club adjourned iu fine spirits, to meet on Thursday evening next. The Bkkcki*X:dgk and LAS* MIITIIG IN Alexandria. Last Night.?

Suttle. utjon wfcoae motion David Funsten wai called to tile chair. On motion, the following gentlemen were appointed vice presidents ana secretaries : Vice Presidents?Turner Dixon, XV. K.

The meeting was tben addressed at length by Hon. I. I Stevens, of Washington Territory, who was loudly and frequently applauded. Railroad Matties ?A letter from HarrUouburg, Rockingham county, published in the Richmond Dispatch, says:? The operations on the .Mmassas G lp railroad are nearly suspended. The prospect is truly a very poor one, and complaints are getting very numerous, and if there should be a decapitation of some of the heads of the concern, it would probably be of advantage to the company." Now, from all we can learn, these complaints are most unreasonable; and the accusations, if not threats, against some of the heads of the roads have nothing to justify them. We believe that > the officers and directors of the company do all that they can to expedite their work, in spite of every dimculy. It is their duty and their Interest t? do so. Those who are best competent to judge, and wbo know all the circumstance*. do not hesitate to accord the meed of praise. Instead of Indulging in censure, on the manager* of the road They should be encouraged, not spoken against?Al*xan<Jrui Gazette.

A Prwjc feraooL fe**J?i5ATiow ?The annual nam;nation of the female department of the Fourth District school took place last Tuesday afternoon The number of visitors?parents and others interested in education?was unusually lirg??, evincing that more Interest bv the people Is felt in that part of the city (Island) for the education of their children than in any other porlion. The manifest benefit arising from tU**ir active Interest and participation lu school matters, is attended by a corresponding energy and attention given by the teachers to their daily duties Of the Trustees present, we noticed Messrs Miller. Walsh. Fort. Randolph, Wlllett. Wbyte. and Ironsides Mr John K Holmead, one of the Trustees of this district, was prevented from attending by sickness Dr Samson, of Columbia College, Richards, of Union Academy. Hyde, of th? naAnr**Ats??? * ? n uwu, una iiimi 01 tne public school teacher* were also present The examination consisted of the best classes In Knglisb composition, grammar. reading, orthogiapny, mental and written arithmetic, familiar natural science, history and geography On the school roll 55, present 53. The school presented a science of neatness, good order, ana attention, and excellence of scholarship and intellectual discipline was manifest throughout the exercises. If It bad t-een desirable to ead to tbe established excellent r'putatton of Miss Margaret Milburn, tbe, the occasion we refer to would have amply accomplished that object. The reading, tnat prime test of careful and able instruction, was admirable,?much attention having been paid to clearness of enunciation, correct pronunciation, and a true expression of the sentiments of the text. The grammar classes analyzed and passed most creditably a short extract from Goldsmith's "Deserted Village," and promptly detected and debited the errors in the ungrammatlcal sentences read to them, gave the reasons for the corrections, aad other satlrfactorv exhibitions of their familiarity with the principles and usages of our language. T Has ?*L * ..n.^uvu, uiiuu^rapoy, ana writing or tbe dictation exercises were uniformly excellent In mental arithmetic (Prof Davits' excellent graded system) the proticlency was more than remarkable?It was extraordinary. Theanalyaea was tborougfc. and tbe problems long and very complicated, so much ao tbat doubts are expressed as to the propriety and beneilt arising from so severe a mmial operation as is Involved in the classes of questions given in the recent publications on this subject, of which, It is claimed by some of our most competent teachers, the book committee of the Trustees Las lately srlrcted the most objectionable?Ureenleal's last edition.

The usual course of public examinations in written arithmetic as conducted in our public schools Is to "give out" a sum. and let tbe pupils get the answer correctly the best way they can, while the theory or principle upon which the operation is performed never sees daylight. Such a system Is downright folly, and we say, "reform It altogether ' We are glad to Bote that at this examination the teacher desired to avoid, and succeeded in departing from, tbe stereoty |>ed process in this respect. Dr. Samson in bis remarks to the pupils, said that, in bis opinion, tbe pupils of the school were receiving a more substantial, thorough, and disciplinary education than could be obtained at most of what are termed "fashionable schools," ?a remark referred to and concurred in with additional emphasis by Gen. Randolph, who al?r> addressed the pupils at the close Mr Ric hards also made some highly commendatory remarks, and the general expression of those present was extremely complimentary to the scuool and its energetic and judicious instructress For our p.irt. we adopt the sentimeut of Lord lirougham, oue of the few great men who have condescended to say something encouraging to that useful, but kept humble class, called teachers?" Their calling is high and holy; their fame is the property of nations?may they sleep under the not inglorious epitaph, commemorating one in whom mankind has lost a friend, and no man got rid of an enemy."
