LOCAL NEWS. AMUSEMENTS TO-NIOHT. Fonn'll Theater.?The military romance ??The Three Guardsmen," has met with an immense success here, and consequently it will be repeated to-night. Miss Susan Denin will *?ing in fine Myln the sou* ?' Whack-row-de dow." Monday night will close the present season at Ford's, and during the hot months ensuing, there will be a cessation of perform ances. (Jeovke's Thbat*e.?This is the lau night of -the equestrian drama of "Dick Turpiii," wherein Miss Kate Vance appears as the high woymsn, and her trained horse D>n Juan, a3 ? 'Bcnuie Bess." These entertainments have proven immensely popular, aid the maiitge mint would do well to continue them. Cawtbkrcry.?At this ever popular hall a -varied bill is afforded, but th? main thin-; is the new local drama, "Beau Sickmau; or, "the .Bushwhackers of the Potomac," which is per formed in a style to comm-ud the a.lmiratiou of all in attendance. SAHF0RT) BTR0rrK are still at Odd Fellows' Hall, and we would certainly aavise till who -would laugh and grow fat to visit them, for a more amusing performance was never given in this city. The bill announced for to-night is a splendid one. Fair.?The delightful fair and festival at island Hall, by 'he ladies of Grace Church, is about closinir. and we advise all to visit it and enjoy a pleasant hour in the company ot the agreeable assemblage gathered there nightly. 'The display of articles is superb, and the re freshments in particular, cannot be excelled. Pi'blic Sckcol Examtwatiows.?The ex amination ot the public schools was continued yesterday, as folljws: Secondary No. I. (resale,) taught at the cor 2?rof llth street and New York avenue by Miss Fannie Hoover, was examined by Mr. "Wilson. Miss Hoover has sixty scholars, all of whom were present yesterday, and the rolls *how that they have been very punctual throughout the whole year, which will account for the creditable examination through which they passed. This school has lost many of its frestscholars by transfers, twenty.three having been transferred during the past year. There are others sufficiently advanced to be trans ferred. and Miss H. has some ten or twelve applications for admission. Miss Hoover has made a speciality of her reading classes, (three in number,) and her first class in eeadlng can not be surpassed by any secondary school in the city. The second class was examined in spelling before the first class, and they ac quitted themselves tolerably well; while many answered with promptness, others lagged, but this appeared to be from bashfulness. The first class was examined next, and Mr. Wilson put this class to a close examination, testing it by some of the most difficult words to be found iu the text book, and the answers were inmost cases satisfactory. In cyphering on the black board the first and second classes showed that thetr instructress had not been unmindful of ! this important branch of education; but the third class, which was examined In mental ! arithmetic, are only new beginners, and they seemed somewhat confused. There are two ! editions of the arithmetic in which these ! scholars are instructed, and either the old or ' r.ew should be ruled out by the trustees, for in looking for lesson eighteen it is to be found on page22 in one edition, and in the other on page oG. Thi*. as may be readily supposed, works disadvanNigeouBly. This arithmetic is known . as "Colburn's First Lessons." When the hcur arrived for examining the ' glasses in geography, it was found to be so late : that Miss Hoover suggested to Mr. Wilson to emit that portion of the exercises, but Mr. W. remarked that perhaps the scholars were de- ; flcient in mis ttudy, and for that reason he j could not comply with the request. Mr. W. ' examined the three classes together, and ex pressed his surprise at the progress they had ! made. He examined the scholars thoroughly in this branch, using several large maps which ! bung upon the wall; and upon the conclusion f"* "^cise, Mr. W. informed the scholars that he was pejfectly satisfied with the results In all the other branches tanght the pupils showed excellent progress. Miss Hoover isan educated and experienced teacher, and devotes her whole time and energy to the welfare of those who are entrusted to her care. The order during the examination was good. This school is held in the ground floor room ! of a brick building on the northwest corner of 14th 6treet and New York avenue. It would do very well for a small school, but Miss Hoover has so many scholars that there Is hardly room to turn around in the room when they are all present. The desks are arranged -very badly, fronting towards the street, along which the street cars pass, and the attention of the children is thus attracted from their -books. We think it would be advisable to re Terse these desks. Srcnvd District.?The Female Intermediate School, in charge of Miss Emily Billing, was examined yesterday afternoon by Messrs Mil ler and Wight, in the presence of Mrs. Myers, Mids Thomas, and several other teachers and friends of the pupils. The classes, three in number, were examined pretty thoroughly in arithmetic, geography, history, Ac.. exhibiting in some ol the studies great proficiency. The neatness and accuracy of the dictation exer c?ee was particularly noticeable, and the read ing in concert was excellent. This school is taught in the second story back room of the old Medical College, 10th and E street*, and for the greater portion of last year was full to overflowing?indeed until very recently quite a number have been waiting admission?but at present numbers -15 scholars, all of whem, with the exception of two, who were sick, were present. Some good scholars have left during the past month?their parents seeing proper to take them away just prior to the examination, when they should have been ?Allowed to remain, to do credit to themselves, as well as to the teacher and the school. The examination took place In the school rcom of Miss Boggs', adjoining Miss Billing's, which was handsomely decorated with mottoes, flags, evergreens, Ac. The singing of the school was remarkably tine, indeed this is looked upon as the banner school ol the intermediate grade, as regards singing, aiid th#scholars passed a fine exami nation in the elements of music. Several music pieces were sung with good effect in chorus, and "The Mountaineers Fare well" (quartette,) by Ida King, Isabella Hall, i lorence * rench. aiu Addle Kandall, was well rendered, the solos ?? Bright Eyed Little Nell," by little Emma Hvatt, and "The Flag of the Thirty-four stars'" by Addie Randall, was also, excellently sung. Theorder of the school was exceedingly good. Miss Billings has been teaching several years and her scholars show that her endeav ors to lead them in the way of knowledge are not in vain. The general appearance of the school was creditable and the examination throughout was a suooess. At the conclusion, Mr. Wight, who had con ducted the examinatioa principally, (Mr. Mil ler being indisposed,) congratulated the schol ars on the results of their studies during the year. Third Dittrict.?The Male Grammar School, Mr. W. W. McCathran teacher, was examined by Messrs. Welsh and Hitz, of the Board of Trustees, and by Mr. Z. Richards, in the pres ence of a number of pupils of the Female Oram mar School, and of teachers of the schools in the District. The examination was a very excellent one, and showed that Mr. McCathran had faithfully done his duty and endeavored to impart the best instruction to his pupils. There are 31 boys on the roll of this school, and of the 30 present all acquitted themselves exceedingly well. In reading, the enunciation was such that each word could be heard all over the room, and the voice appeared to be perfectly instructed as to modulation, Ac. The mental arithmetic, grammar, analysis, and written arithmetic classes also displayed great proficiency, and it wis evident throughout that while Mr. McCathran had some sluggish minds, yet he endeavored to imbue all with a desire for knowledge, and his z-!al in teaching -was well rewarded by the evidences of im provement on the part of his pupils. At the close of the examination It was announced that George Lasky, Michael Tuoly aad Geo. Felger wore selected from this school as the contestants for the scholarship in Columbia <Joilege. Fourth District ?Primary No 2, (male,) Mi?3 Seville Davis teacher, was examined on Thurs day by Mr. Ellis, trustee. This school is held on the ground floor of the 6th street Presby terian Church, and was last year on a common lioor with the female primary school taught by Miss Josephine A Lee. It is now divided from that school by a partition, and this while affording more seclusion for the schools has a back In the way of deficient ventilation, otherwise the room u not badly adapted lor school purposes. Of the 60 on the roll of this school 59 were present; oae being absent for sickness Mr Oassei, (for a long time an efficient trustee' himself in this district) was present, as was also many parents and friends of the pupils The examination showed very satisfactory progress on the part of the pupu?, and the froveroment of the school was noted as credi. table lo Miss Davis. Some 40 pupils were at the commencement of the year transferred from her school to the secondary school, lea vine it pretty much an A, B, C, school, yet she has now some 3?i more pupils fully competent, in the opinion of the trustees to be transferred to the secondary schools, leaving a large opening Jor the admif-sion ot primary scholars This lact tells well for the teacher Secendary No 1, (mixed) Miss Annie U. Adams, teacher, was examined by Mr. Mar tsgb on Tbursdar. The school is held In one of the "shed structures, ? for which the city is lamons in the way of school buildings, bat through an abundance of doors and windows opening opposite each other, has at least the ad vant&zes of tolerable light and ventilation. The appearance of the school room and of the pupil# was creditable to the teacher. This school, from various causes, held a position in ite grade rather under thi average of last year, bat has very considerably improved witnin 1 Wcondary No. 2 (female), Miss Mary Ann Lee wecber, was examined yesterday pysnr. Jobn E. Thompson, in the absence of tne ex amining trustee, Mr. Holmead. who is still suffering from severe indisposition. w<e :r?*r to ?ay. The school room prrsent^d a^v y pleading appearance, heantifnlly tnmm. it was with evergreen?, and decorated w srsas? saw jss I'rffhjt.rian Cb?rcb; .? 0? i( ^ we S5S?Sif "? cheerfol, animated am^arMce of the pupils may be traced to th ncreeable nature cf their surroundings The nn^drawback to the situation is its contiguity ?o a business street, along which there s a con. tinual clatter of vehicles. Of 49 pupils on the roll 46 were present, 1 being sick. A? with the nrevious examinations in the Fourth District, there was a large attendance of parents and other visiters. Miss Lee insists upon two things at her ^ xaminations?first, that the pa rents of the pnpils shall be present; and sec ond, that the examination Bhall cover sufficient time and be pushed with sufficient earnestness to do full justice to all the classes and all the pupils. The examination yesterday was for some five hours, and being conducted by one of the most thorough practical examiners in the District, the test was sufficiently severe, we should imagine, to satisfy even Miss Lee. While the answers were almost uniformly correct, the classes in mental arithmetic are especially deserving of notice for the clearness and readiness with which solutions to difficult problems were given. The class In dictation was also noticeably good. The vocal music exercises were also superior, and one piece especially, n solo?"I love the trees, the brooks and llowers,"?was delightfully sung by Miss Mary Taite. Mr. Thompson and others present gave tne school and teacher warm commendation at the close of the exercises. Secondary No. 3, (mixed,) Mrs. Mary E. Mar tin teacher! was examined yesterday hy Mr. Ellis Of the 54 scholars on the roll 53 were 8resent, one being absent through sickness Irs. Martin we consider one of the very be6t teachers we have, and herschool certainly has no superior of its gride In the city. In nume ration and arithmetical exercises the proficien cy of the pnpils was especially marked. This school-room (on 4* street, between M and N south,) iB also of Washington's choicest shed Bcbool-honse architecture, but is kept so bright and clean by Mrs. Martin that |it passes mus ter for much more than its intrinsic value. "When, however, 40 or 50 visitors, as yesterday, are added to the occupants of the room its mis erable cramped proportions are pretty well demonstrated. ' The singing by the children was exceedingly rood, especially some songs by Master J. Wt?it raore. A recitation by Wm. Hall, Lizzie Beau and Charles Crump was given with much spirit also. Mr. Ellis, in concluding the examination, complimented the school and teacher in warm terms as being always up to the mark, and every year showing fresh progress. Mr Cassell said it gave him great pleasure to endorse all that had been said in favor of the school. _ Center Market To-day.?Beef, best cuts, per pound, 30c.; next, 208S5C. Salt Beet, 15c.

There is some question, however, whether the office is now necessary, in view of the fact that the Steam Fire Department is ex pected to go into operation within a few months. The firemen contend, however, that they are an organization until the Steam De partment is fully organized, and they will likely remain In service until snch time.

Rookwood, or Dick Turpin the Highwayman," will be produced at this comfortable and fashionable theater to night, for the last time. This piece has en joyed a success rivaling that of the imposing "Mazeppa." Miss Kate Vance is a charmics yonng actress, and exceedingly popular, and the credit which she has gained in this city by her performances are jnstly due her. In ?'Rookwood" Don Jnan evinces even more intelligence as Bonnie Bcxs than he did as the Ukraine steed of the plains of Tartary. The performance will commence with the "Spectre Bridegroom." On Monday next "Mazeppa" will be re peated, and for the last time. This is truly an excellent bill, and will attract an unusually large audience.
