OriMiaoF Tax Nbw^boyh* Hons.?Last eiiiny, the Newsboys' Home, in Armory Square lot, which has oeen in course of erec tion lor some time, was formally opened. The Heme is a frame structure, two stories in height, with a depth of 75 feet and a widith of 25 leet. To the left as we enter is the bath room, supplied with hot and cold water bath tube; and alto sink, wash-basins, towels, loo It log-plaseee, brushes, combe, Ac. To this room the newsboy, on entering, is introduced, and undergoes a process of wholesome ablution that makes a sew newsboy of him. To the right of the entrance, and of the main office, is the office o1 the matron, Mrs. Mary Flagg, which also contains the ?? Newsboy's the shape of a table perforated with apertures to the number of sixty, each aperture letting into a correspondingly numbered com partmentin the drawer to the table. On coming in at night the newsboy can deposit in his com partment such of his earnings as he has no im mediate occasion to use, and receive Interest on his deposit at the rate of five per cent, per year, payable monthly The " bank" is the gift of Mr*. Hon. Sam'l Hooper, of Mass. Passing on, we come to the boys' reading room, the walls of which are ornamented with pictures, and which has also a good-toned melodeon, the gift of Miss Alice Hooper. The ?'lockers" under the benches that line the walls, are numbered and furnished with lock and key, serving as receptacles for papers or such articles as the newsboys may desire to store in safety. The newsboys' dining-room, which has tables to accommodate sixty or more persons, comes next, and this room is surrounded by closets, pantries, wash-room, laundry, A c ; and a dumb waiter communicates with the kitchen below a convenient room, -having a fine cooking range, boilers, &c. Coal bins, closets, sinks, and other conveniences, find a place in the basement. Mounting to the dormitory, we find a spacious room, well lighted, well wVffied, witfe that d<SldW&tn?3 'or ft sleeping apartment, good ventilation. This room accommodates fllty neat comfortable cot beds; resting places that mnsi seem almost beatific to tbe little fel lows after their heretofore sleeping experiences in dry goods boxes, on market stalls, &c. The bojs? snch of tbem as are able to pay anything?are to pay 10 cents per night fqr lodging and 15 cents lor meals, two of which will be furnished each day?breakfast about 7 o'clock, after the early sale of morning papers; and dinner between 5 and 6 j>. m., between the sales of the city afternoon papers and the New York papers coming in by the evening train. Tbe Horn", which was erected under tbe supervision ol Dr. I>. W. ltliss, (surgeon iu charge of Armory Square Hospital.) chairman ot tbe building committee, shows in its various departments that close attention has been given iu its construction to the welfare of the boys, ar.d, at the same time, to the question as well ot the economical and judicious management ot the concern. It wl!l be in charge of the ir.atron, aided by two servants; and a police man will be stationed at the Home dtiring the night. Yesterday afternoon, the boys, to the number o: a do/en or so, were treated to an opening dinner by their kind friends; and lat ?r in the eveninir there were some interesting exercises at the Home. At eight o'clock, Prof. Henry called the mtetu.g togeiner in the reading-roo.n. t^uite a number of the patrons ol the newsboys were present, and lift en or twenty of the boys were there seated on their benches. Midway of the row, sitting bolt erect, and with ;,n air ol severe gravitv, as if the responsibility of sus taining tbe dignity of tbe profession rested upon his shoulders, was Mr. Aleck Dough-rty. Everybody knows Dougherty. He is a char acter amongst ^he bovs. He wpars his hair short, and sports a coat of military cut, with immensely long sleeves, which keep his hands warm in cold weather, and wheu the air Is balmy, he turns them up our ot the way in a gracelul kink, quite indescribable. Dr. Channing opened the exercises with pr;tyer, invoking the Divine blessing upon the " Home" enterprise. The tjpys dropped their hehds in their hands with a aevoutness a little too good to last: and presently one little scamp, peeping at his fellows through his lingers, overcome by the oddity of the situation, gave a perceptible "snicker, ' which proved infecti ous to all the party save Dougherty, wno en deavored by frowns and becks to make them sensible of the impropriety of their conluct. Not sncceediug, he gave a sharp dig with his elbow in the r:b! of his left hand neighbor, and admonished one to bis right by a pull at his back hair, "hat reduced them both to tearful solemnity. And the moment the prayer w-is through, Doupherty, to put a stopper then and there on such practices, called out qnite audi bly to his < omrades: "^ess limine catch yon laillii in prayer-time agin, and I'll punch yer heads fer ye, see if I don't!" After which there was no levity. Various reports were read and accepted, showing tbe satisfactory manner in which the tru^i had *>een administered by those concerned in the institution. Up to March 1st the receipts had been SI,792 27, expenditures 4,051* 00 leav ing a surplus of S~3I in the h*ud.> of the treasurer. This surplus has However .-in.* hfccu exhausted; add some *sa was last night contributed by tlio.-e prison* in the way of an tuai dues (*-/) for membership, Jcc. In the reports it wa: stated tuai the benefits ot the He me would not be confined to news boys; that hoot-blacks and other uncared for children may enjov us privileges. on motion of H. M.Stade, Esq., !>r. Bliss wes constituted ;ui honorary member of the Newsboys' Home, iu recognition ol his ser vices. Dr. Channing made some remarks congratu lating the association upon the succossful re sult ot their labors, lie suggested that the secretary should taUe down thu hist ry of the news-boys; their expediences',& ;. Soni" of these boys won Id doubtless rise to places of honor and trust, perhaps reach the Presidential chair. Records of a juvenile lie form Association within his knowledge, showed that some of its inmate-had risen to b ? member* ul Cou press and Governors ol" State?. If boys thus tsinte<< with crime could thus ri-e, what hope there was for these boys who were so much more favorably sitnated. T<io examples of Gen. Banks, Theodore Parker, Abraham Lia coin and others who have risen tro:n an hum hi? position were referred to as worthy of emulation. ... l)r. Channing concluded with some good ad vice to the boys, recommending them to form an association among themselves, making re gulations to govern themselves by. Mr. Slade here caused the boys to sing * My s*ul is marching along," accompanying them on the melodeon. The boys sang the pie.*e ex ceedingly well; and we need hardly add that (with their trained lungs lu lull play) the ??chorus was effective.''* Rev. E. W. .Tacksou, chaplain of Armory Square Hospital, followed in some remark apropos to those of Dr. Channing, urging th > boys to big* aims, illustrating by numerous and interesting examples. Mr. Head ley, of N. J ., then made what we call a nlodel speech for boys, right from their platform and every word of which they ,xmld comprehend. And as showing that 4,a touch of nature makes tb? whole world an in, ' it is a ta< t that bis familiar anecdotal remarks were quit** as interesting to tti^ niont Its i.ner a* to the untutored youngsters them selves. Mr. Headley knows how to talk to boys?newt-boys. Dr Macgowan (the well known lecturer on China and Japan) also made some pletsant ar d interesting remarks; and was followed by Prof Henry, who made whut we conceived to be si rne most jadiclout suggestloi s in regard to the education of the?" boys. - He thought case should be taken not to hold up to them the idea of being or,:U "a?*n? bnt ra'.her of being <l men. Not one in a million could rii8 to the Presidency, but all eouhl be good. And let whatever greatness, they attalu**d be found ed on their goodness, tie thought well af tihe suggi stlons regarding the taking a record of tlie boys' history and of their forming an Or ganisation for their own g<3vernmeot: and he concluded WHS some remarks npon the pre?
