The annual examination of the mil* department of the First District School was held yesterday afternoon, In the presence of a lar^e number of person* interested in education. Of the school trustees present wr observed Col Randolph, Messrs M H and A W. Miller, Drs Ironside and Walsh, Mr Hoimend, snd Mr Wlllett. The teachers tn our pablir schools were also present in considerable numbers. Mr. Hyde, of the Georgetown public arhools. our venerable neighbor. Mr. John Seaaford, and many others solicitous for the future welfare of the rising generation, evidenced that solicitude by their presence and participation In the exercises of the afternoon. We also note with some pleasure the attendance of Councilman J .T. Given, of the Seventh Ward. ThU school has on its list 44 pupils, all of whom were at the examination. It may be well to add here, that the usual attendance at this school during a grejt portion f the year Is front 55 to ft!) pupils. but as the summer approaches they drop off gradually, bavin* I'lunn vo anfna to; thereby materially afl'ecting the examination exerciscs, u It frequently happens that the school thus loses some of its best material Where all the pupils la a school are so well advanced a* those of Mr. S. J. Thomson, however, the distinction is not so great as inlght otherwise be expected. The scholar* were well classed, and exhibited great proficiency in their everal studies. They were examined In reading, spelling, arithmetic, grammar, geography. his1 tory, and the Constitution of the I nited States; In all of which their prompt and Intelligent replies and explanations gave high satisfaction to the examiners The classes were so constituted that no one class was shown oil' to the detriment of another; the lower classes, so far as they had advanced, exhibiting an equal amount of intelligence with the higher ones, and demonstrating the Impartiality and faithfulness of their excellent teacher In a bltfh decree Rnaetai u* _ ,r?v-.? ...VIIHWU UU^UI to be made or the classes in grammar, history, arithmetic, and the Constitution, whose examination was protracted and thorough, and must have Iwett highly gratifying to the tearher. as it was complimentary to the understanding of the scholars In mental arithmetic, particularly, the first and second classes exhibited remarkable readiness of calculation, and performed examples that many goot scholars would be puzzled to work out without the slate. As a whole, the examination was highly creditable to our public school system; and it is to be regretted that the parent or guardian of every pupil there had not been present to enjoy with them the commendatory remarks of the trustees, so justly and deservedly bestowed at the close of the examination exercises. Attimtios, National Rifles'?On Thursday next, a flag is to be presented tn Hi? _ . ? ? ? ~ -- *i? rv 1 Minute Men In a grove near Culpeper C. H . Va. The Hon. John S Pendleton, who does such thing* capitally, is to make the presentation speech, to which Capt Tazewell Patton, the commander of the corps, is to make the reply. Eight or ten Virginia volunteer companiesfrom Orange, Alberniarle, Fauquier. Alexandria, and perhdps from other counties of the Old Dominion, will attend, as well as thousands of both sexes from the surrounding country Great preparations have been made to bave " a hi?h old time," generally, tbe occasion being the lirst such extensive military gathering that has ever taken place in Virginia, we apprehend. Would It not be well for the National R:fl-s to attend from this city, to show them a specimen of the drill of the volunteers of tba Federal Metropolis? The point may be reached by taking the steamer George Page at ty a in , froin whence they will be tran*ferrcd to the railroad in Alexandria; to reach the grove after a delightful ride of between two and three hours The return trip will be made at night. We trust the Rifles will take the idea into consideration; for they could not pass tbe day inore pleasantly than thus, in tbe most beautiful conntrv ImaalnahU unrf "?<!? ,K- 1 -* 'L w n ?, ?uc nuauow Ol lUf towering Blue Ridjje Mountains The railroad < ompanv will doubtless put the fare down to the lowest possible notch. Joit.x Day Pakdoxkd?This morning the President pardoned John Day from the penitentiary, where he has been serving a term of eight years for thecrimeof manslaughter, which term would have expired on Monday next. The details i-f the crime of which Day was convicted are (till freah In the memory of most of our citizens The victim was hi* own young wife, and the cause jealousy At the time of his conviction the public mind was highly excited by the case, and for weeks it was a matter of discussion. Day was sent to the penitentiary. and from the time of his entry there took a sensible course, and became a tractable and useful prisoner. He was of great service to the Wardens in various instances where the security of the prisoners or the snfety of the guards was endangered His good de I - LI m " jwi wiirui uiaur uiin mc isvonif oi inc prison, and though his pardon is a gratification to the Warden and his officers, his loss will be felt by them. He could be trusted alone. insid# or out of the priaon, and in several case* of extreme nece??ity be has been called upoa to do service outside the walla, and never exhibited the least Intention or desire to leave. This pardon will have the effect to restore him to citizenship, and he will, we understand, leave the city with his uncle, to reside m the country. Blade^sbebo Academt Cask ?The esse of D Sber.tr and others net. B O Loundes and others, involving the right to the control of the Rladensburg Academy, between the "old board'' of trustees, successors to the original corporators, and the "new board,'' under an art of Assenibly of 1K3H, has been at last decided in the Court of Appeals in favor of the old board The academy was incorporated many years ago. the charter providing that the corporator* aho?M th-msHve . thev and their suo esjora to be trustees The act of made a change, giving the election of trustee* to the patrons of the school, and under thia act, trustees were accordingly r:ko?ea. The old board refnsiug to yield, the new trustees applied for a ma ni at nut, which the Court here, pro forma, refused to ^raut, from which the Appeal was taken, resulting as above. 1'he ground of the decision is the unconstitutionality of the act of 1658. the Court regarding the original charter as establishing a private corporation, and covered by the rulings of the Supreme Court iu the celebrated Dartmouth College case.

Thi New Yok* Amen Chvicb. now on th? I eve of completion, may be pronounced without hesitation to be an ornament to the city, already not 111 furnished with handsome public and private edifices The irregular-shaped tongue of Kround on which It had to be built was generally thought to be hopeless as the Mte of any church building moderately suitable and tolerably good looking It was a sort of ''ugly duck," more to be pitied than admired. But we ask the reader who has any pretension whatever to a sense of architectural fitness and beauty, if there can be anywhere found a better-proportioned building, or one in which all the requisites of utility, propriety, convenience, eorafort. and comeliness can be found better combined, thsn in that which rests on tbe trapezoidal wedge at the intersection of H street and New York avenue' Look at It from which way yew will, at anv distance, far or near, the eye la pleased with the symmetry and taste which displav themselves The aptre is faultless to look at externally, and on a closer examination will show the use* to which it, or rather lta bssement, ia pat, to be far more valuable than is to be met with in ninety-nine out of every hundred of such a'ructures On catering the building from the street, through a large and airy passage, you open into a sessionroom, with which any congregation might well be satisfied *s their place of service, so roomy, airy, and pleasant ia ft. and so thoughtfully furnished, both for Divine worship and for Sundayschool purposes.

But we intend this merely as a sketch and a stimulus to those who take interest In our public improvements We have only to add that the architect of this church is James C. Haviland. Esq., and that the total cost of the structure is but twenty-five thousand dollars.? Inttlligmrer. Chkmapkake and Ohio Canal.?The Cumberland Civilian had scarcely had time to announce In its issue of last week that the canr.l was in good navigable order Its entire length, when the editor iKBivra iniormauon that a Irak had sprung In the neighborhood of dam No. 5. When this leak will be stopped and the canal be again in navigable order is bard to tell. The Civilian says: 44 The prospect before us is of the gloomiest character e understand that nothing is doing at the dams?the water in the Potomac and Wills' creek la getting low, and there Is almost an entire suspension of boating on the canal. In the mean time several of our coal companies have large contracts to fulfil, and were about making others, but, from the uncertainty of being able to get it to market, will have to decline making any new rontracta. This is an unfortunate state of things for Allegany count); for not only do ?he boatmen iutfpr tPfinnslw *?" W ? 1 M ??-.j, out tug miners, ana, :noM(l, til persons engaged in businets In this city and ounty. Tbe canal Is tbe main nrtery through which tbe current of our monetary life Is made to How. and its ^ood condition is essential to tbe prosperity of all tbe interests of Allegany county." Ttie Baltimore Sun, r.oinmeniing on tbe above, says : '-This Is doubtless true. In a gre it measure, for while the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad also penetrates tbe heart of the Allegany coal region, and transports to market with the utmost dispatch, wben the emergency arises, great quantities of its mineral and otber products, the canal is at the same time an additional and bigbly convenient outlet for the coal fields, in the steady and extensive operations there conducted It would seem, however, that until *ome change is made by tbe State of Maryland, through legislation in of individual owners in the canal, ?? auch command of means or management can be ensured as will ensure a true teat of the capacities <f tbe canal for effective use and business At present it is only a machine through which to furnish a few small offices to a few small politicians. VV hat hope is there of better results under the present system ?" The Public School Distribution of Premium* ?Under the resolution of tbe Board of Trustees of Public Schools, tbe distribution of premiums will take place next week in tbe Smithsonian Institution, as follows:?Tuesday, July 24, tbe Fourth or Island District; Wednesday, 25th; the Third or iNavy-Yard District; Thursday, 26th, tbe Second District; and Friday. 27th. the First District, uuder such arrangements as may be prescribed by the sub-boards of the respf'Ctive districts. Monday was omitted In this arrangement for the eipress purpose of affording :-n opportunity to tbe acting Mayor. Board of amnukd. ana uonra or common Council to be present. It la understood that the programme of each district will this year be exceedingly attractive. We were to-day shown by Mr. V Harhaugh, Treasurer of the Board of Public School Trustees. the assortment of premiums and diplomas to be distributed. Tbev consist of llftv Deautifully wrought silver medala and twelve hundred elegantly hound books, of various deacriptleus The utedals designed for the male department are fashioned after the shape of a Maltese croM, having neatly engraved on the one side the words 'First Honor to , 18#50;" and on the reverse the inscription '-Awarded by tbe Trustees of the Public H hools. W. C." Those of the female department are of the form of a shield, tastefully ornamented, bearing the same inscription as those first mentioned. The diplomas, designed by Mr. J.U Bruff of this city, and executed by Mr. Dongal, of Georgetown, are of such a description as that they may well be prn?d by the happy recipients, as well for their intrinsic worth, as for being a reward of good scholarship Chi*T5*l CormT ?Yesterday, Patrick O'Donnell, tried for assaulting and resisting policeman McHenry In the discharge of his duty, was fully acquitted by the jury. Joseph Straining was charged with ?n unnit on a young man named Johnson, who had insn'ted the wife of tbe defendant. He was acquitted by the jury. To day ?The Court took up the rase of the United States agt Nicholas alias Dick Plumber, (colored.) iu which tbe prisoner was accused of stealing a wheelbarrow, the property of James Harris The jury found the prisoner guilty as indicted. Tbe case of the United States agt K. B Schnabel, which was set for trial to-day, was cilled, and Jos H Badley. Esq , appeared as counsel for the defence, ana made application for a continuance of the case on the ground of the absence of material witnesses The Court stated that legal reasons must be tiled in order to lay the foundation for any continuance. Mr. Bradley then produced an affidavit, signed by tbe defendant, in which be set fortb that be could not safely go to trial without the attendance of Mr Robinson, of 111., Waldo, of Conn , Wlnsluw, of X. C , and Covode, of Penn ; and that be experts to show by these abssnt witnesses that tbe prosecuting witness, together with others, were < onsplring together to destroy the character and damage toe usefulness of the defendant. The motion was being argued as our report closed. Fik Neg*o*s l!* Ma*ylawd ?Yesterday, detective officers Allen and B usher were employed to go to Bladensburg, Md., to release a colored girl named Deborah Conaway, and Inquire into the cause of her arrest From tbe Justice, John \V. S^ott, Esq ., they ascertained that she bad been brought before him as a nun-mi^mt negro, and the fine for aucb entering the Ptate la twenty dollar* The girl aald that abe could pay the fine If ahe would aend to her uncle. Waabington Tyler, for yearaa workman In McKelden'a liakrry A note waa aent, informing Tyler that the fine waa ?S0, which muat be paid or ahe would be aent to jail and aold to pay that amount, and alao requiring him to bring evidence of her freedom. Allen and Ouaher obtained her release, carrying a certificate from John A Ruff, Eaq > *? whom ahe had been bound when a minor by the Orphaaa' Court of thia District Allen took tbe girl and required her to *bow him where abe waa when taken, and ahe told him that ahe left thia , 11V with a little tin bucket to <rath*r anin? hlxk berries, that a man, who said his name 1* Urown. accused ber of stealing blackberries. and arrested ber in tbe woods not far from the Seventh street road, in tbe District He carried ber round towards the' railroad, and said be would sell ber if be could get to the road in time to take her to Baltimore But be went outside of tbe District line and took ber round to Biadensburg. Allen says be will try to seek a little further into this matter. Tbe law of Maryland was made with & view to prevent free negroes coming into that State to reside > But if it yields a revenue to all who bring a free negro before a Justice, It offers a strong Inducement to kidnapping negroes in tbe Diwict Cravikg Secceity roi Peace ? Yesterday afternoon John Ray, a German, was arrested ana i?ban Kafne* 'r ~ " v.. w*viv #uv?ii c uuuwu upun a cnarge ox aasauit and battery on Catharine Koone, and attempting to abdnct her daughter, and to extort money from her by a threat of proaecution for bigamy From the evidence it appeared that the prosecuting witness wu married to Ray In thia city about 13 year* ago by Rev. Father Alig. Since that time Ra? absented himself in the Mexican war, and did not return until lately. Not having heard of him, or receiving any Intimation of Di a existence, she believed him dead, and she married a second time After her second nuairtage, she amassed a little property. Ray recently returned, claimed her as his lawful wife, and the daughter by the flrst marriage as bis child, and the property as bis. Justice Johnson decided that though be regarded the seven years' absence equal to a divorce In the eye of the law, he had no authority to decide the question of the lrgality of the subsequent marriage, that belonir ' ftiPp^p>n^ \ \ SS* S J^w"* "utt<"' !

It turned out to be a common fight between two boys, and the case was dismissed with an admonition from the justice which will be of advantage to them If attended to. Mrs and Miss Mcpherson were charged with an assault on the child of Mrs. Schafiield. and Mr McPberson with assaulting and threatening Mr. Schaffield. It was a difficulty between neighbors, which the squire deemed sufficiently settled by reaulring the accused to give security for peace. James Welsh, jr., was arreattd for an assault on James Otter. The parties are hackmen. The father of Welch gave his team Into the care of Otter and left the stand. Otter got an engagement. and while passing up the avenue discovered that one of his wneels was coming off. and his passengers were In danger.

Kditok Staf :?In an issue of your paper a few days subsequent to the late city election, your readers were informed that a certain individual had been brought before a magistrate to answer the charge of inciting to riot at the first precinct of the Fourth Ward; that a number of witnesses had been summoned and were ready to testify .ts to the part he took in the stoning and shooting at that precinct, by which young Stirling was shot, (his leg having been since amputated;) and tbat an examination was waived before th?* magistrate. Now. sir, I am informed that several witnesses have been before the grand jury, but as yet no Indictment has been found Can It be that this case, by which the lives of those presrnt and of | persons residing in the Immediate vicinity were so greatly endangered by the arts of this person and others, and voters thereby intimidated from going ti the polls, (by which, perhaps, the result | of the election would have been changed.) is to nave the ' ro by," because the question put ly the yrand inquest, "Did you aee him ttrtkt any one ?" has not been altirmatively answrred byany witn<?s, when the charge is not o( assault but of innting to riot, or are we to conclude that politics c;tn be the shield of some in our community and not of others Fourth Ward.
