Lad t?een withdrawn by .w. Whyte in the committee and in presence of Mr. Thompson. Mr. Whyte ?uu-d that the words he made use of st the lime the letter was received were uttered uoder a condition of excitement, and without reflection. He b.-id freely withdrawn them, as he .Lad not intended to be offensive to any one. The report was accepted and the committee discharged. Mr Abert, h? connection with the subject just disposed of, but not as a member of the late committee. submitted the following resolution : R'solrfd, That when any teacher or aasistant teacher ahall have any complaint or charge to make against any member of the Board of Trustee*, it (ball be made to the sub-board of that tracher or assistant teacher's district; and should the sub-board neglect the same, or fell to give it such attention as the teacher shall think DroDer and necrsaarv under the clrrnmitanm it it'll be the duty of such teacher or assistant teacher to present the nine, and all the facta of tb?- c?ae, to the ireneral board, in writing, within two months after the caute of such complaint or charge; and if such complaint or charge shall be against the whole sub-board, or a majority of them, It shall b* the duty of the teacher or asaistant tencher to present the same, in writing, to the geatral beard not later than at its second regular meeting after the cause of faid complaint or charge, otherwise the board will not entertain them. The revolution was unanimously adopted. Mr. Ironside ottered the following resolution, which was adopt- d : Httolced, That the Secretary be directed to make application to the Mayor to set apart a room for an office of the Board of Trustees of the Public Schools, in accordance with tbe provisions of the Vnth section of the act approved November 12th, life. Mr. McKnew, from the select committee to whom was referred tbe letter of tbe chairman of the committee on the public schools in the Board of Aldermen, transmitting a communication froui Mr. P. J SUser in ref reuce to the establishment of a sewinrj machine system in the public schools of 'ti^::ty, reported that the committee deem it lexpeiuent to give the quest-on favorable tons'deratlon at the present time The repcrt was accepted and the. rommittee ordered to be discharged, aud the Secretary was instructed to transmit the action of the board in the matter to the chairman of the committee in the Board of i Aldermen. Mr. Wlllettsti'ed that the chairman of the select committee to which bad been refsrred the 1-tter of Mr. Thompson, preferring certain charges against the sub-board of the fourth district, had ' submitted a report stating that Mr. Thompson's letter contained live charges against the sub-board or individual members thereof, which live chataea tbe report sett forth, but It give* no opinion a* to whether the charges are maintained by tbe evidence or not The letter of Mr Thompson had been spread before the public through the column* of the Star, and he would now like to have the committee or board sty whether these five charges or any of them have been sustained or not. The report of tbe committee dies not My. Charges have been made and souae^od v is in the wrong, and ought to be censured If it is the sub-board, why censure u*j if it is the author, then censure him Mr Ah#rt taiJ ftklt MiimlltM called upon to ezpreaa any opinion, only to investigate and report facts it was not for the com lutttee to decide for the board whether the charges are sustained or not, but the board itself. The gentlemen can certainly read the report and judge for thematlves. Mr. W'hjte said that he had taken the mrjor rnrt of Mr Ti-oinpson's letter to himself, because is name waa mrut;oned directly All his old companions of tne former board hadthoogntso also. So far as the charges coutalned in the letu-r were concern* d, he fell bound to aay the only one be admitted to be true was the one charging him witb showing his political preferencea in relation 1o school maitera. He was fr?e to cduiit that be was bound togoforhia part/. He tad helped to elect Mr. Ma-rudrr, wu turned out tbe old Know Nothing board wnich turned out a teacher . from tbe public achoolauf tbe Fourth Diatrlct, because ab? waa a Catholic. It waa through Ma ? ruder'* election that this teacner waa rtaiort-d to tr aituation aa te.icber, and aU* cornea forward now to prefer charges. He admitted having carried politics into bis government of tbe schools. If Mr. Berret bad not been elected not one genteman here would have been a member of this t board, and we ongbt to auatain our party. Why. tbe Mayor bad aent for him (VVbyte) to come to tbe City Hall to chide bim for giving employment to Know Nctotuga, saying that it would ba injurtoua to oar party' Mr. \ViU<-tt aald that acme one ought to be cen urea, mat me c barges in io? inter were either true or untrue, and he wanted to get at some expression of opinion about them. Mr Abert neld that the coiimiittre bad no right to < xpr?* s an opinion The sub-board had the report bef?re them, and certainly were capable of coming to a judgment upon it. It was not for the select committee to attack or to defend the sub-board of the fourth district. Mr. Wlllett to Mr Abert ?"l)o you think the chirges are sustained ?" Mr Ab<rt would auswer the gentleman, beeanse be nerer shrank from answering a question when called upon. Still he did not think the gentleman had a right to ask for his individual opinion upon a que-tion like this In answering Mr. \V. he would begiu with the last charge in Mr. Thompson's letter, namely that of political favoritism That wusa mere difference of opiuion betwte# himself and Mr Whyte The speakrr rr<a dra itii? cuirge^stue iiion itioiii o:ie in the whole M'er; but whether it it to be confined ?r appl*n<ird ttepeiida upon tbe individual views of individual members of the board 80 far as the speaker w?s concerned, te certainly differed with Sir. W byte as to tbe propriety of introducing party matters into tbe management of tbe public schools. Tbe speaker certainly was of tbe opinion that it waa highly improper to introduce party predjndicea into tbe schools. Mr. Whyte thinks differently, and is honest iu his belief. It is a m>re difference of opinion between men. As to tbe charge tbat transfers were made in violation of the rules, tbe speeker did not tbink there was any culpability at all. On investigation, there was only one transfer found to bave been made in violation of tbe rule, and be bad no doubt this transfer could have been explained satisfactorily. p As to tbe charge of admitting suspended pupils into snother school of a higher Knd>., to tbe oet i riment of meritorioua pupil*, It was la evidence In Ibe eoauiiUre IbM Air Vviilett Inadvertently iaaued t jro ticket* of adulation to auapended pupil*.

Aa to the charge concerning the night achool of I . the fourth diaUict not being kept in fall boura, Mr. A did not think there waa any cnlpebiltty there; there waa no evidence of antMr VV hyte aaid that, an far aa be waa concerned, he waa aatlafled with the report of the committee I He felt couecioua that he had done bla duty, and ahonld continue to do ao, rev a dieea of aoy aucb charge* He felt no ill will toward* any one. though perhaps be bad aome reasons to f?l hurt at the maimer in which tUa caarge had been the cineral board Mr. M H Miller moved that, as this matter bad been adjusted, the rote by which the general board at its last meeting had continued the su?penston of a pupil, who had been suspended by (be lub-boud of the fourth district for Improper dtpvrOuent, be reaitidtd lie did to b-oaute be thought the ^ib-board of tte fourth district capable rf attending to the business of their own d strict, aad a* far ?s be was crtutcrued If It was a ease that h id <?j urred la bli own District be sjould not have jfelt at all coiiii>l.m< uted by its L Wing takeu fr-in trie control < f thesqb b^ard and I referred to the general itosrd He thought the |L sab-board better judges of the rroper tlute to reI a state the suspended pupil than tbe general board.

RoctkoP the President Elect.?Mayor Berret. of this city, having addressed the following letter to tbe 1'resldent of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company. John W. Garrett, Esq :? Sir: 1 learn that the President elect until very recently contemplated passing overyour road from Wheeling to this rMy. and that, owing to rumored intentions on the part of citiiens of Maryland and Virsglul* to inWf-rr with bis travel to our Capital, you were Induced to make diligent inquiry as to the truth of these threats If correctly informed, will you do me the favor to state the result of your inquiries touching this matter? Mr Garrett replies, that he understood sometime since that Mr Lincoln designed tn tr> Washington bv tbe western road, but In consequence of apprehensions that his progress might b?* Interfered with by thecltlz*nsof Maryland and Virginia, be bad givVn up this purpose, and should travel by a more northern route. Mr Garrett assures tbe Mayor that there bas not bjren the least foundation for any of tbe rumors to which the Mayor refers, but that they are simply inventions of those who are agents in the West for other lines, and are set on foot for the sole purpose ef interfering with the trade and travel on tbe shortest route to tbe seaboard, that thev might secure It for thems-lvrs. lie says tbe safety of the President elect would have been perfectly assured from tbe Ohio river to Washington, and he can only regret that tbe purpose of Ihe President elect to travel by another route should seem to give countenance to stories w hich are In every respect unfounded.

In tbe initiation of the Government that same voice was heard and complied with, and tbe results of seventy odd years bad fully attested tbe wisdom of tbe decisions adopted. Tbe urgency of her call was no less great then than It was years ago. He referred in an eloquent manner to tbe promptness with which tbe States had responded to tbe call, and expressed tbe trust that they would prove themselves worthy of tbe great occasion.

Much feeling was manifested by the Convention during his remarks, and at the conclusion the members flocked sround him with words of congratulation and confidence Mr Chase, of Ohio, assured Mr. Tyler that they "were ready to follow tchen Virginia led, a* sk* pursued only the path of virtue and honor;''' itnd all expfeised themselves as being confident of ShAAA*.

They are Roger Balwin, Chauncey S. Cleveland, Gen. Jas. r *Pratt, Robbins Bartell, Andrew S. Treet, and Judge Chas McCurdy. It was believed tb.it the Convention will, to day, discuss the propriety of employing a phonographic reporter, to take an accurate report of tbe debates; and, also, the propriety of havlnsr a carefully revised report made up by one of "the secretaries, for publication, in order to prevent garbled or one sided statements from going abroad to prejudice the action of the Convention in the mlndi of the public, as well as to allay public excitement on the subject of their deliberations.
