Each year improve ment* are being made in models, ami the speed in some of the regattas of last year will compare favorably with tnat of yachts of the same class in any water*. Not coutent with the size and modelsofthe production of our naval architects, a number of gentlemen in the Treasury depart mentorganized the Washington Yacht Club, and contracted for a sIood yacht, to be built by Mr Munn, a celebrated Brooklyn builder. She will undoubtedly be the finest specimen of naval architecture in our waters. Modeled after the celebrated yacht Datiiey, winner oi the Cape May cup ot" 1#72, her owners ex.]>ect sj ut that will astonish the native hereabouts, lirr length of deck is k> feet, keel, 40 feet, with i , leet beam. According to contract, she w ill lie ready for delivery by _ May l"?th, but as rhe is now nearly completed, it is probable that rbe will be home, or on her way, ere that time. Ca| tain Wesley Davis, of Alexandria, accom panied by several members of the club, will proceed to New York for the purpose of bring ing her home, and the adventuresome party an ticipate a pleasant return voyage. Several of the yachts of the New York and Brooklyn clubs will'escort them oil Sandy Hook, and it is to be ho)>ed that her speed and the skill of Captain Davis may leave a favorable impression upou Gotham's yachtmcn. After leaving the Hook, no port wlil lie made, unless from stres- of weather, until Fortress Monroe is reached, from which point their safe ar rival will be telegraphed. It is pro po-ed that our vachtmcn shall meet them Ixlow Fort Washington, and escort them to the city, giving them a genuine and hearty wel c? me home. The beautiful vacht Americus.ot the Americas club, will, with her new cabin at d suit, make a line apj>earanee. In size she will be the only rival of the new yacht, and from the pluck of the Americusian* we may ex|*ect some lively sport ter the championship ot our waters. A* new club Is about to be or ganized, and it is said that a tine 24-feet yacht bas already been ordered from a Philadelphia builder. The yacht Tarboo. nearly completed, under the superintendence of Capt. Smithsun, will soon be launched, and her owners enter tain the highest hopesof her proving more than a match tor anv yacht of her daw on the river. The Witch of the Wave i* owned by the same gentlemen, and thev hope to occupy a jsmition with the Tarboo which could not be attained with the Witch. The Kxcelsior Yacht clnb have purchased the Mariah, winner of the first prise in the Glymont regatta of laat year. We understand that they are alao having a new vacht built. The l>olphin, East Wind and Dauntless will, a* usual, spread their canvas and gallantly respond to every attempt to take their wind. " The Dolphin is probably the fast est vacht of her sir* (21 feet keel) on the Poto mac. Fannie Bell, champion in eight oat of ten regattas, and holder of th? St. James* hotel cup. is being newly painted and fitted out in a substantial manner with wire rope for standing rigging. Capt. Bell ha* no fearot her losing her enviable reputation. General Whipple ami Dr. Barnard, of the War department, are having their yachts, the Hesperus ana Blue wing, put In first-rate order In anticipation of lively sport. The Spray, | Gertrude and Kcho will be soon launched, swelling the numbeT to a respectable flotilla. They are each fine yachts, and with skillful management are matches for CTaft* of much larger si *e. The Kcho, owned by Capt. Gaaa way, although having participated in several regattas,* has never occupied the position which is evidently entitled to. It h> doubtfal whether the Little Ella, so long the champion of the Potomac, will again be fitted up. However, it is rejwted that some of the officers on the I'nited States receiving ship New Hampshire, at Netrfoik, Va.. are about to buy her for the pnrpeee of runuing the yacht Atiams. aa old rlyal of the Klla, owned by the cadets at Annapolis. There are numerous o'her smller yachts, many of which are know u as swift sailors.

Mr. Richards |irtwntM A CoXMFKICATIOH Fr.nM *R. W*. Ol l5**D, ssNMttnK ? mode of wttlfment which,'' be tbiaks, "will be more acceptable than a legal adjudication." In hi* communication, Mr. Guinand expresses hi* amazement at the report of the committee, an, in hit humble opinion, it was not justified bv the testimony. The com mittee Mid that be "malt have known that there was a law governing coal weighing. He amwers that he dia not know of the provisions of that law, and that it is impracticable, and there is not ? coal-dealer in the city that complies with it. He never supjsssed that the hoard would act on mere presumption and would pass judgment of condemnation on the actions of one of its servants for acts not actually proven. He was a tared for a censure for not supervising his ness better, but certainly was not prepared to have his bills mulcted to the amount of ten per cent, in addition to the scathing rebuke of the committee, and he therefore very naturally, at the instance of his counsel, protested, and gave the board a notice of his intention of appealing to the courts. Divesting the subject ot all legal forms, it reduces itselt to a simple business proposition, viz: how much coal has the board lost? It is for the board to find out? not pre.-ume? and th?n make the demand, and, It' found just, restitution must be made. That is the pro|>osition he made to Mr. Hart on the night ot March #, when be was sent for by him to meet the committee on accounts, which did not meet that night, and that is the proposi tion which be now renews to the board. He will pay for all the coal found short. It has been sliown that at diflerent times and in differ ent districts four loads of coal have been weighed for him and found correct. He had therefore as much right to presume thit all the rest of the coal that was weighed was correct, as for the board to presume all the rest incor rect because they found some few loads short that had never been weighed. He does not offer this as a compromise, hut as his original proposition. In conclusion, he repeats the statement made by one of the trustees at the last meeting, vi*: If the board will take the trouble to look into their coal bills of the last two years and compare the number of tons and the amount of money expended, besides taking into consideration the addition of the Jefferson and (.'ranch buildings, coupled with an almost unprecedented winter, they will find that there has . been a less number or tons and less monev invested in fuel than for the last two vears, al though the winters were mild, and that Guin and has not cheated them so bad after all.

Mr. Richards moved that the bills on which there is anv dispute be laid over to the next j meeting. He would not like a snap judgment to be taken by the hoard. He had, since the ! last meeting of the board, heard some state- | ments in reference to the coal contract*, which, it ti lie. placed the affair in a different ph;ise. | He urged that the board should not act too | hastily; that they should not ru.-U headlong into the courts, where they will surely lose the case if thMr insist on a deduction of 10 j>cr cent, be side the amount actually proved short. He did not know Mr. Guinand until the investigation i was commenced, and from what he had learned j no man stood higher than he as a business man before these charges wire brought.

From otlier sources he had obtained the following figures: School bills actually paid, ?45,746.14.

That we deeply sym pathize with the teachers in their unreeom pensed labors, and we thank them for the zeal and fidelity with which, under neculiarlv try ing circumstances, they discharge their duties." After debate, Mr. Hart moved that the suh je-t be referred to a special committee of tour, with instructions to report at the next meet lug. agreed to, and Messrs. Harris, Khees, Scott and Cliampliu were appointed. THE PRIZE nrsfWES*. Mr. Harris offered a resolution, which was re jected, ?'that if It shall be shown to the satis faction of the committee oil prizes and exami nations that any teacher has violated the first rule governing the award of special prizes, the said committee be directed to exclude the xctiool under control of such teacher from participa tion in the competitive examination.''
