But its per lorrnance does not do away with the regular concert ball entertainment, which has ever been so popular with amusement-seekers at the capital. SA^roRP-Sanford's inimitable Ethiopian Opera Tronpe is still giving concerts to full and delighted houses at Odd Fellows Hall. iSanford has opered an entire new budget or comicalities on his present visit, aud all lovers of genuine fun and sentiment should go and hear him and his tronpe.

The display of fancy and useful articles is superb indeed, and all are dispensed ?with as cheaply as possible, and with a grace lor which the Island ladies are famous. Public Si-bool Examinations.?'The ex amination ol the public schools was continued yeF#male Intermediate, First District, taught by Miss A. K. Lowe, is neld in a one-story and a bait building, on the southeast corner of G and 11th streets The school room is a large airy one, well lighted and ventilated, but is somewhat out of repair, and needs the atten tion of the plasterer and white-waslier. This school is one of the largest in the city, and has a good reputation, and there was consequently a large attendance of teachers of other schools and the relatives and friends of the pupils, -who manifested a deep interest in the exami nation. Miss Lowe has her school well divi ded into three classes, which were very thor onghlv examined by Messrs. Wilson and Brown in reading, writing, spelling, composi tion, dictation, grammar, geography, history, and mental and practical arithmetic, in all of which the scholars showed creditable progress. The class in geography, which was subjected to lengthy examination by Mr. Wilson, acquitted itself espscially well. A large globe was placed immediately in front of the scholars, upon which Mr W. illustrated his questions. The first and second c lasses in reading read to gether. in order to save time. The reading was -very good, and the pronunciation ot words by the scholars usually correct. As some of the scholars ot these classes took their seats after readn.g a versa aach. the examinersexpr^eu.1 their approbation by such remarks as "Good," i'Verv good." The writing books of the scholars shew good improvement, and the compositions were also good. The answers to the questions proposed at the written examinations were opened and submitted to the scrutiny of those present. The questions were mainly correct, and were very neatly written. Pro* Daniel, who wa3 present, has trained the pupils well in vocal music, as shown by the exercises. ??I Love the Brooks, the Trees and Flowers," as sung by Miss Bettie Dunn, who was joined in the chorus by the whole school, is worthy of special mention. There are sixty scholars on the rolls of this school, fifty-four of whom were present, the others being detained by sickness. There were eleven transfers to a higher school during the month of January, and ten for the present month. The school room was tastefully decorated vnh the national flag aud evergreens, and pre sented a neat and pleasing appearance. Second District.?Secondary (female) School Ko. 1, held in thebasemnet of the Assembly's Cbarch, corner of 5th and 1 streets, was ex amined yesterday afternoon by Mr. Miller, la the presence of ' we are glad to note) quite & large number ot the parents and friends of the scholars?a larger number than we have yet seen at any of the Second District schoq; exam inations. Particular attention had been paid io the decoration of the school-room for the oc casion. a large flag being displayed behind the teacher's desk, with a number of smaller ones in different parts of the room. Conspicuously displaved was the motto of the school, "We live to learn," with a large heart in evergreen banging below It, and numerous wreaths of the same on the wall, this school numbers 33 scholars, of whom 43 were present, and is in charge cf Miss Jane Thomas. The examining trustee pretty thoroughly examined the three classes, in orthography, punctuation, arithme tic, geography, tables, ic., and right well did they acquit themselves, although there was some little backwardness on the part of some of the scholars, and a few wrong answers were given. The recitation of the tables in concert was well done, as well as the ciphering and dictation exercises on the blackboard; indeed some of the girls could not bs surpassed on the blackboard. The geography class were, in addition to answering t&e questions propounded, required to draw small maps on the black-board and give the relative position cf places, resulting in the drawing ot several maps in admirable manner indeed. The arithmetic class also worked out theirproblems on the black-board, and the for mation of the figures and neatness of the work va> noticeable. The dictation exercises, the ciphering, and also the drawing of a globe on the beard by Miss Kate Grant surprised all present by their excellence. ('lr.se attention appears to have been paid to *c>cal music, and during the exercises the scholais sang several pieces with fine effect. Thii school wa= formerly taught by Miss At ton. who was obliged \o relinquish it on ac count of sickness, and in February last Miss 'Thomas took charge, bringing some of her ""holies (from No. 3.) Miss Thomas deserves ^.reai credit for the fine appearance of the school, which was highly complimented by Mr. S|iller at the close of the exercises. Thirt Jjistrict.?Secondary School, No. 4, JMiss Catharine 3Iorphy teacher, was exam ined in the morning by Mr. HiU. Miss Mor phy has had a number ot years'experience as a teacher and therefore it was to be expected hat her 'examination would be a good one. Ihere are 60 puolls on the roll, of whom jj ?were present. Miss Morphy has had a draw back t? contend with from the fact that the first class in her sohoel this year was the first class In the Primary School last year, and therefore she deserves the more credit for the attainments of her pupils. There are three schools in the TOutn occupied by Miss Morphy?the old mar toi house, corner 3d and A streets?and she has a general supervision over the order and de portment of the entire number, and therefore much attention which her immediate pupils should have received was necessarily divided among all present in the room. The deport ment of all the scholars throughout the entire day was excellent, and so far as the examina tion was concerned, the reading, spelling and mental arithmetic ot the pupils oi both divi si ns of the second class is pronounced very good. The other cla?ses, nrst. third and fourth, a ;0 conducted themselves so well as to elicit the praise ol the examining trustee. The sub * beard of the third district have ever consid ered Miss Morpby's school one of the best in their charge, and the examination of vesterday undoubtedly sustained thena in that decision Secondary No. 3, Miss Kate Sanderson, was eramin?d in the afternoon by Mr. Hitz. Mr. Ferguson was present a portion ol the after noon. The school room is a pleasant one, at the corner of 2d and K streets, and yesterday w:u tastefully decorated with wreaths of flow ers and evergreens. There are 53 pupils on the Toll, of whom 50 were present, the others being detained by sickness. The deportment of the j>upils throughout the long examination was ucellent, Indeed, and the teacher evidently has fPDod control over those entrusted to her care. Where all classes did so well it is impossible .to particularise. In spelling and reading and in the rules of orthography; in punctuation and the use of capital letters, thev cannot be excelled in any secondary school in the Dis inct; good as many of them are. The enunci ation of all the readers, with but one or two excc'pUans, was admirable and each syllable and wcrd could be heard distinctly in all por tions of the school room. The first class in this I study have gone entirely through the third .reader. The opinion was expressed that many |hi:d classes ox the intermediate schools were luferior to the second class here. In the ex amination in spelling the examiner did not i unfi le himself to the book, butga%e out mis ?eUar.eoufly a number ol hard words, and with tevr exceptions they were correctly spelled. Tl e exercises in dictation were also admira U !?* as to proper punctuation of sentences, ,%ti"v?ranhy and orthography, and in this the ?pviond clas* was equal to tne first. We ob t &i*0? (*? we b*Te at other schools,) f ?na. tb? |fjTj3 yrpre somewhat ahead of the ' Tlle c?py bocks of thoes classes are rr.ou is of n-atness, and great care has evident ly tx-ea taken to teach them to write well. In secgrnpfcy and written arithmetic, the aa lar'7^,*, ? riven, and the work as jprctrp>.y correctly done. ? There was bat one ?tudy i* wbicU the p*pAU : w?r* at all deficient, and that wfca mental arithmetic Even in this they did compara fj^Tweil but the questions were answered ^^rTndnotuntrequentlyincorrectly, This hare been owing to the fact that the pnpiU restless by reason of u?Jth of the examination. However, even 5? he atttSnoe^s of this class Miss Sander- ! son deserves credit. The fourth class so far as tt bad studied, was deaervin* of equal credit wtththe flr*t. At the closaof the examination Mr.Hiu addressed the pnpils, and expressed himself unusually well pleased. The only cause of regret he had was that the proficiency of to many of the punils would compel h m to make rnpil end teacher part, ns he would be compelled to transfer a very large number to schools ol the intermediate grade. _ Fcmrfh District?The Fourth District Gram mar School, John E . Thompson teacher, was examined yesterday by the sub-board of the lH&trict* by Mr. Z. Bich&rds* Mr. X. M Wilson, of the Second District Grammar School, and by other gentlemen present. The examination was held in the large and airy school-room of th < Female Grammar School of the District. Mr. Thompson's high reputa tion as a teacher, causes his examinations, as well as those of the l?male department of the same school {Mrs. Amidon's), to be largely at tended bv visitors from *11 parts ol the city, as was the case vesterday. Among those present were ilr. S. J* Thomson, ot the First District Grammar School; Mr. Wilson, 01 the Second do.: Mr. McCathran, of the TMra do., and many leading teachers of the female schools also, Mr. Z. Richards, Dr. Croggin, M. John E. Norris, Wm. Thompson, Esq., Mr. I. T. Cassell, Alderman Noyes, Mr. W.Galt, Mi F. Fillings, and many others interested in t?e cause ot the pnblic schools. In accordance with the expressed wish of the teacher, the examination was rigid, and admirably did the beys stand the test. We have witnessed many sharp examinations, but none where the questioning was so vlgilan* outside of the usual routine of questioning, and none where the answers were more satisfac tory. This was well demonstrated in the tests in written and mental .arithmetic, analysis of language, geography, Constitution and history of the United States, written spelling (in which the corps of examiners and visitors racked their brains to produce unfamiliar and oddly spelt woTds) and extemporized false syntax. Two of the scholars, F. Franklin, (11 years,) and Wm. Hart, received special mention in the course of the exercises for their proficiency. The answers (written) given to the questions propounded at the written examination were exhibited yeeterday. They were almost uni formly correct, and told well for the style of penmanship taught at this school. These boys will make good business men. This school, like others of the male grammar schools, has sull'ered much from the number of older pupils taken away by their parents, in consequence of the abundant openings during the year for re munerative employment for them. We think this is a wretchedly mistaken and short-sighted policy on the part of the parents, but they do not seem to see it in that light. ?
