A special meeting of the I* ard of trustees of colored st ho.>ls was held last night to consider a report from the building committee recommend ing repairs to certain school structures. Tin* committee was authorized to make the repair* alluded to. Mr. Lewis then read A KIKIU OF KEfSOLVTJOyg, declaring that every member of the board in dignantly spurns as false any allegation of in gratitude or hostility towards Senator Sumner, whether covert or avowed; that even if doubts had not existed as to the legality of the lat*) board's proceedings in this matter, the existing financial condition of the schools imperatively demanded their reconsideration by the present board; that any steps having tor their object a maniftstation "of honor and resjiect towards s? nator Snmntr. without necessitating a viola tion of duties under the law. will meet with tho hearty approval and concurrence of the board, ; ml, as a proof of their sincerity in this matter. t?sev pledge themselves to initiate and carry o:it a ->lanthat v. ill see ire. as a decoration for tli?* Suuner school building, such a portrait of tli-? ?*at sman whom every colored man. iruDi'i and child in the land delights to honor, as was origKiaily contemplated, and that, too, witho it having recourse to the funds intrusted to their keeping solely for educational purposes; and further, that a committee of three members I.; appoiiiti j to realize this plan at the earliest practicable moment. After speeches complimentary to Mr. Sumner by every m niber of the board" the resolutions were unanimotisly adopted. The resignation of Miss Charlotte L.

The Chair >tatod that a- the question had been raised as to the legality of repealing an act of the tornier board, he liad through the Govern ir r?*<inested the opinion of the attorney ot t:m District of Columbia on this point. Mr. Wa. A. Cook. attorney for the District, says in his opinion that the trustees ol colored schools cannot expend any part of the mini ? v appropriated by the Legislative Assembly ex cept for educational purposes, without violating the act of Congress creating the present gov ernment of the District, and the art of t!i<? legislative Assembly making the appropria tion. He further savs that its use for any oth-r object, however meritorious or laudable, would be entirely unjustifiable, and that it was, there fore, a mistake on tlie part of the old hoard to attempt to apply five hundred dollars of the school funds for a portrait of Hon. Charles Sumner, and the present board acted wisely hi promptly correcting the error. How bipsles Kettle Tlicir DlftienltioH. A FIOHT llKOKEX CP BY THE POLICE.

The quarrel resulted iu a set tight, ac cording to tbe rules of the ring. It seems th tt ou Wednesday evening seven additional bands came into camp, some from Virginia, some froiu Maryland and one lr<>m Florida, and that in the jollification at meeting alter an absence ot several months, someof them got liquor at Fox's Puiev Branch tavern, and among them th-se' two brothers, who. after drinking, renewed an old quarrel. and this resulted in tisticutis, each STB1PPIKO TO THK WAIST before "going iu." This was in front of the Piney Branch tavern, and daring the great est excitement, Officer Bains appeared on the ground. This was just as the younger of the two was getting the worst of it." The officer or dered the gipsies to pack up and leave, and they at once commenced to hitch up th sir hor'ses. and tbe officer left. The father of the two boys said with an air of nride to the officer that he bad three boys, ami tliev '?AI L HAD A BIT or riOHT IK *EM." On going his afternoon rounds, Mr. Bains was astonished to tind the whole caiup at tbe same place he had left it in the morning, and to learn that the iiuarrel had l?een going on at in tervals during his absence. He asked them why they did nut leave as ordered, and one of them, pretty full of liipior, said they would "Go WHKBK THEY D PLBASBD.*' The officer reported the facts to Sergeant Bedway. who went to Mr. Shoemaker, the owue! of tbe tavern, and ascertained tha' be had given them no leave to remain there. S-r gtai.t Kidway then went to see Mr. Fitch, the a^ent of the property on w hich their camp is located, on the Piney branch road, and got an order from him to remove them, and this morn ing Lieut, .lobnson detailed a squad of mounted men to proceed to tbe camp, ami the gip?;es were started oil towards Mar viand, making al together <jl'ITB A CARAVAN. Old Crabtree told tbe officers that th-*v never went to law about their difference*, a sl they might just as well let them tight It out thire. as they were bound to do it somewhere.
