Txcstkk* or tbi Prauc Schools ?The regular monthly meeting of the Treaties was held vrsterdav afternoon, at the usual place and hour. Present Messrs Wbyte, Wlllett, Lawren*on. Fort, M H. Miller, A W. Miller. Abert. Ironside. MrKnew. Holrread, Walsh. Treasurer Harbaugh, and Secretary Rieketts. Monthly reports were received from ths various teachers; which were ordered to be placed on fl'e. Tbe application of M'ss Anna Evans for a situation at teacher was received and referred to tbe committee on examinations A communication was received from J. H. Daniel, tescher of music in the public schools, requesting permission to give certain concerts, permission was granted &g requested. Mr A V\\ Miller, from the committee on rules, to wbicb was referred tbe subject of making certain changes in tbe regulations, staled that the eon mittee was not ready to report at the present meeting, and asked for further time. Tbe committee, he thought, would be prepared to make tbeir report at the next meeting. Mr Abert. froir the committer on examination*, reported tbe camt of Miss L. B. Allen, Miss Mart* Y. Davit and Mits Maggie E.Flenneras quai;fl??d for teachers place*. The report wu accepted. Mr. A be rt addressed the board in relation to the public school fund He considered this fond as one sacredly set apart for educational purposes, and not t? be otherwise applied. If custom hai sanctioned a perversion of this principle, it was a custom which, In bis opinion, ought speed!! v to t>? broken up He was led to these remarks by tbe numerous applications which had recently come t>efore btm from creditors upon tbe school fund in his school district He did not know how the subject was to be reached, but alluded to the matter in order tfcjt these more PTrwflfnrcH in ? , ..'...WW th* affairs of tt e school might suggest some remedy for the evil; thit son? plan might be suggested which would secure such legislation as would keep the school fund from being used for nil sorts of purposes of the Corporation Mr A. in an endeavor to meet the object above alluded to, offered tbe following resolution : H'solctd, That a committee consisting of one member of this board from each acbool district be appointed by the President of the Board to consider and report a plan to prevent the school fund from beln^ mingled with the general fund of the corporation, and to secure its use solely for tbe purposes for which it is intended. Mr. Holmead agreed with tbe gentleman with regard to tbe object of the resolution, but desired to kiow whether it was competent for this board to take such action. Mr A. tho'igbt it was The committee might fix upon such plan as would, with concurrent legislation by the City Council, cffect tbe object in view. Mr M H Miller proposed tbe following as an addition thereto: And that said committee be directed to inquire * > ? * iuiv unu reuon ai me next meeting the facta connrvtfd with 'Le collection, defxislte, and draft of tbe school fund of tbiscity, indicating particularly the amount of special * bool tax pud to the city collector thus far in toe current fiscal year; the amount drawn during tbe irniie period by the Treasurer of this Hoard, and tue amount that should now stand on demwlte to the credit cf the school fund. Mr W illctt thought both resolutions out of time and out of place, the lust was an indirect impeachment of tue Mayor. Such a resolution might emanate from tbe City Council, but wasdecidrdly out of place in tbis board He was opposed to casting anv rt-flt?tion on tbe Mayor. VI- ? ftr tfiti ? 1 * * * * " ii. ?? .Miner coma not look upon this matter ia any such light as that in which it was viewed by the last speaker. He thought the resolution of the gentleman from the First Ward appropriate. and would vote for it. Mr. M. H Miller denied any design to impute wrong to the Mayor. Mr. Abert could not see by what logic either resolution could be distorted into an attack on tbe Mayor. If hi* character stood upon so ticklish a foundation a* that, the sooner it was knocked from under him the better. Mr. Willett thought this resolution meant something, and went ou to say what he thought it did mean. There was an indirect charge agaln6t somebody. It would have the effect of drawing the attention of the public to the Mayor, because the a bid not been paid their salaries Mr. Abert defended his resolution, a d thought it important tout the Boards should have this information, in order that they mi^ht know how to set uniltrstandingly with refereuce to the sch-?ols Mr M H. Miller thought the Board In duty bnund to know the facts, in view of the relations of the schools to the Trustees. Mr. Ironside said that a resolution similar to that of Mr M H Miller was :.t I*.- ?? - quest of the Mtyor some time during tbe early sessions of the prevent board He (Ironside) thought it the duty of the board to know what amount of fuiius tbere is to tbe credit of the schools. Tbe Mayor bad evidt-utiy foreseen this very state e.f affairs at the time be requested that res-ilntion to be passed He did not believe either of the gentlemen, in ottering the resolutions, had intended any disr"spe<t to to tbe Mayor. Mr VYiUett still insisted tbat the resolution, or rather the addition, wes Impolitic. He would vote for tbe first clause. On motion the resolution wza adopted, and the rbeir appointed as tbe committee thereby authorized. Me'srt Abert,M.H Miller, A. VV . Millet. and Holmead Mr. lro*wlde offered a resolution calling for a committee to make arrangements for tbe next examination; famed. The chair appointed Messrs. Ironside, Fort, M. M Miller, and Whyte. At.b.tasdbia Affair* ? We glean the followInn items from the Alexandria Gazette: Mr Uruce, in charge of the United States mall, went through to Lynchburg on Monday, and re. turned to this city yesterday. He was not molested at any point on the entire route. During the month of March there were at this port, exclusive of small oyster and wood craft, Ac , seventy-six arrivals, as follows: Steamers, 17, brigs, 1; schooners. 58. This ts a small decrease upon March of last year, when the arrivals were as follows: Steamers, 10; ships, 1; brigs, 4; schooners 79?total 00 This decrease has been owning to the fact that during a considerable portion of the month navigation upon the canal was snspei ded, and the demand for coal vessels lets tbaii last year. A very deep religious feeling in several of the congregations of the churches tu this place is said to exist. Protrarted services have recently been beld in the Methed'st Church South, the Baptist Church, and, we believe, others We noticed a few days sine? that up to that time the Clerk of the County Court baa vranted but one marriage license, expressing '.he hopettnt the number would be very speedily increased.

Jt ia probable that C. F True will be given In 1 uiu-dy of Detect!v* Allen, to be brought to Washington for trial immediately. PavsiDEHT Likcolv at the Navy yaid ?Yesterday the officers of the Navy Yard were pleasantly surprised by a visit from President Lincoln, who with his f?iuily dropped in upon them entirely ooexprctedly.
