Mr. Miller, from tbe committee on text books, reported in favor of the adoption of Hilliard's Reader in place of those now in use, and their introduction into all the public schools of this city. Also, that the new edition of "Losslng's His tory ot the United States" be substituted in the place of Uuackenboss &ud the "First Lessons," now in use. That "Lippincott's Pronouncing Gaxetteer of the World" be placed as a book of reference on the desks of the several grammar school teachers. Tbat "Mason's Mannal of Gymnastic Exer cises" be placed on the desk of every teacher, and that the daily practice of some of the phys ical exercises there recommended and exem plified be encouraged and promoted by every proper means. That the "Song Garden,'* by Lowell Mason, be substituted as the text book of vocal music for the "Concordia" in the intermediate schools; and that the "Nightingale," by W. O. and H S. Perkins, be substituted for the "Golden Wroatb" in the secondary schools. The committee also believe that a better op? portnnitv would be afforded for testing the practical utility of certain maps, apparatus and articles of school furniture, sought to be introduced if an opportunity were afforded, to place such articles for a time in some school for that purpose, and therefore propose the adoption of the following resolution : Resolved, That the committee on Text-Books he authorized to introduce into any appro priate school such maps, apparatus and school turni ture as the proprietors or inven tors may seek to introduce, for the purpose of fully testing the practical utility of the same. Tbe report was adopted with the exception of that part proposing a change in music books, which subject was reterred to the committee on vocal music. Mr Miller stated that the books now In use had been literally sung out, and the children wanted something new, while Mr. Wight. Mr. Hitz and others held that it was better to learn a few pie.. - s well tnau to ramble over several books and not at least get a proper education into the elements of music. Ou motion of Mr. Miller, it was jif solved, That the Oommittee on Text-Books be authorized to make all necessary arrange ments lor the introduction of "Lippincott's Pronouncing Gazetteer" and of " Mason's Manual of Gymnastic exercises" into the re spective schools.

Geortetwn. D. C , Aug. 27,1>U.4. Those citizen? of the town who are subject to the approaching0raft to furnish soldier? for our army, end who desire to avoid that service, are in vited to join in the following seif insuring scheme : Every citizen who is liable to be drafted can de posit the sum of One Hundred Dollars in the B?nk of Commerce. The whole som so deposited will constitute a fund for the etc! isive benefit of those of thedepositors wbn may he drafted The scheme will work thus : Should there be one hundred depositors, for instance, and only twenty of them be drafted, eighty wool?' be protected from service by paying one hundred dollars each, while the whole ten thousand dollars would be distributed in sumsoffive hundred dollars each to the twenty who were dra'ted. With that they could obtain substitutes or keep the mouey and go into service, at their own option. Of course the real result will be so varied from the one here given as an illustration as to make it more or less beneficial te the drafted parties ; but there is this absolute certainty about it: that every drafted man will g?? ? whole of his money back, with the almost equal certainty of more than deuble that sum, and a probability of his re ceiving a suns of notb ss than five hundred do'Jars. In this achem?; there can be no juggling, no pre cedence of favorite individuals, or truks played off upon the unsuspecting. There will te* but two well ascertained parties: those who escapo the draft and lose their hundred dollars, an! these who are drafted and get all t?e money deposited by the whole association. _ rhould tbis scheme fail of a faverable result, or work any particular hardship to one of the de positare, the subscriber has in view an adjunctive ssbeme which will afford the necessary relief with ont any additional cost? to the association.
