Fortunately the Diuei were ext.ima>sbed with but little damage from the fire, bnt during the excitement some thief stole ?<o from the money drawer. An attempt was made to turu in an alarm for the fire from box t?3. but as one or two occos.ons recently the attempt was worse than a failure, for C was sounded instead of til. sending the firemen in a diflerent direction. Thie relying ou our used ap fire alarm apparatus may "yet lead to a dis astrous couflagaratioii.

On Saturday evening the *p?!cial coin unit tee ai>i*uinted l?v the Board oi Tnwteesof Public Schools held a meeting to inquire into the alUgation* of miamanagement, Jt.. made by Mr. A. K. Browne, iu the Council, on the authority af a member of the b>ard of trustees. Mr. Browse waa present, and stated that the substance of what had passed between Trustee Scott and himself was about as follows: When the normal achool bill waspend.ng in the Coun cil he met Mr Scott, wno, in conversation, estreated hir^elf somewhat dissatisfied with th - prevent management of tk? schools, and be s>fs?a* several transact ions in connec tion with the third district. He made no cha-ges of fraud, but said that there had been (according to his recollection) a reckless ex penditure of money, and hegare an account of several transactions inhis(thH third)district. Those etatements were not mac* in contideuce, and he (Mr. Browne) had referred to them in the Council. Subsequently be requested Mr. Scott to give him the statements in writing, and lie had done so, but marked "private 'on them. When he (Mr. Browne) was asked for the letters in the Council, they lielng so marked, he mused to give them up, bat. after what had passed he did not think he woull be justified in withholding them. Mr. Browne now submitted the letters referred to. In'one of tbem Mr. Scott states r? refer ence to the normal achool bill that "Such a school is much needed for the training of teach ers. Coakl the means be had to start a high school 1 should prefer to see that done; but the finances of the District will nor allow it." And he also suggested: "By dispensing with the tour sub-assistants in the Female Grammar schools *1,800 could be saved, and by dispensing with the German ?1.400 more could be save. As now taught in the schools the German is worse than useless. 1 am not opposed to the Oerman being taught in the schools wr te. But It should be proi>erlv regulated and properly tanght, neither of which is now done. When the time comes (and that will be when we shall have a high school) let the Oerman be taught iu the schools." The "private" letters are as follows: "Mr. Brofmt The matters I referred to iu mi casual interview, a few daya sinco, relate wholly to tbr sub board of the third di-trict. and should not be allowed to Interfer- with the pa?age of Ute bill new before the Council. 1 know Mr.ll.; well un derstand him, too; and can show, even to his eat is faction, that wrongful expenditures nave been made, and. too, in direct violation of the rale prescribed for the government of tlie sub-board. But as I pro Kt in a few days to sever my connection with the rd. I do net care to trouble myself or my friend* with tbe matter. I know when and where to app>y a remedy, and will, at tbe proper time, do so." '?Mr. Broimt: Bill- allowed, which 1 feel confl dent are far ia excess of what any prudent bu-uue-, man would allow or pay: 128 feet light iron fence ia fiont of the McCor mi< k Buildidr 9 "<S3 9U Repairing and setting up 17 stoves 00 W bitewashing fence aud rooaaa ia Wallach Building... 171 Ou Varnishing the d*eks and a few other things at same building, including an item of i) gallons varnish, at #3 per gallon 3ul 00 , Here are foar bills, and I feel confident Ui*\ lay man of sound ji:<Igmeut will say that $???). if not 47i?, would be a liberal sum for ih-.- ?h >l?. But these are not all. ' A M. 8." Mr. Browne was questioned by Mr. Scott, and ?said that he could not recollect whether the word" reckless"or "extravagant" w.?s used, but the idea conveyed was that there had been a criminal expenditure of money. Mr. Scott said he used the word excessive/' In answer to other questions, Mr. Browne said that Mr. Scott had not mentioned other members. The construction be put upo-i the conversation was that there were other frauds in other districts, but no cases wen specific. Mr. Scott made uo specific charges except as to his own district. Mr. Detrlck suggested that there was a dif ference between extravagance and fraud, and be was led to believe by the remarks made by Mr. Browne that gross frauds were being per petrated. Mr. Brown said It was bis inference from Mr. Scott's language that frauds were creeping *nto the board. Mr. Scott, however, did not men tion the names of any trustees. Mr. Scott then made the following statement: Feeling a deep interest In the normal school bill. I was anxuws to show where tbe money could be saved to carry it oa. I mot Mr. Browne and be asked me how the schools were getting on, and I said well, and expreeeed the hope that the normal school bill would pas*. He said the difficulty would be to And the mtstr to carry It ou. 1 immediately remarked a* to the sub-as sistants and the Cerr an, ard stated that there re bills <? expenses la excess of what thev should be .(Mr. Browne soys I said "reckless and criminal.") and 1 mentioned the bills nowhere, and said I had investigated them and had not mr^Jirt'd ln ^ sub-board or tn the genual board. I made no charge of fraud hgafiist any member of the board In any maa ner,shape, orfsrm. I simply said the bills were excessive, aatravanatithr the charge of fraud and corruption had never entered mr mind It Is probable that the coamiltteeVu ^eport the testimony only. 1 Raimoad Eluctiox.?By an order of tbe town council of Harrisonburg, Va., an election will be held to-morrow upon the question ot the town subscribing an additional t2S,ooo to the Washington, Cincinnati aad St. Louis Narrow Goage railroad.

C UAROS or JCDOR MACARTHUR TO TO GRAH 3 ion. To-day the June term of this oourt ?n con vened by Judge Arthur. The grand and petit Juror* w$e ciJled. Twenty on the grand and twenty on the pStit jury ana we red to their "mtIo.A.Behrirwascheeen foreman of the grand Jurr and sworn, and the other jurors were sworn ee fbllows: Jfohn Stahl, B. J. Chamben, Wm. Clabaugh, Ed ward Green, N. C. Draper, WTfc. Croggon, L. Neomeyer, A Eberiy. Deraey Carter, F. Douglas, jr., J. E. Miller, T. Evans, R. Eichorn, C. A. Appell, 4. G. Bowen. G. W. l>onn, D. Uellagban, and L. W. Guinand. nrt .rrc>GR s chakor. Judge MacAithur addressed them as to their dutiee, stating that it was their duty to examine and present those who are charged with the transgression of the law. The dttrlct attorney would prepare all formal indietments. It was necessary that fifteen should be present at the session, and twelve are required to acquiesce in finding a true bill. It his been the duty of the grand jurors, for a few years past, to act on the most atrocious crimes, but the ermmnnity could congratulate Itself that the perpetrators had been brought to speedy punishment. Since the last term of this court the people had been shocked by the commission of anocions homi cides. It would be well that these cases are acted on promptly. We were not alone, tor throughout the country the commission of these cnmes seems to be epidemic. If we ever ex pect to free the District of such crimes, the cases should be acted on promptly, the perpetrators presented, tried, and if guilty be made to suffer the extreme penalty of the law. In these cases, however, they should act carelully, for it has sometimes happened that parties have been made to wrongly Buffer the penalty of the law. a i?f afterwards the guilty party was discovered. He then defined murder, and called their atten tion t? the statutes relating to gambliug. duel ling, and elections. Mr. Stahl was sworn a? bailiff, and then the grand jury retired to their I room.

A Mixed Up Case.?A few days since Jus tice Walter had before him a case which excited considerable interest among the colored people. Louisa Jones, colored, charged Frank Boll with being tho father of her illegitimate child, born on the ilth of January last. Bell having been recently married added more to the interest of the case. Mr. Hagner appeared for the defend ant, and Mr. C. P. Harman for the prosecution. Quite a number or witnesses had been sum moned for the defendant, but two only ap peared, and after the prosecuting witness had testified positively that Bell was the father of the "kid," these two were called. Henry Wil liams testified that he had been with the girl on the 11th of April, of last year; that he knew it was the 11th of April because he had been paid off at that time, and was then engaged in watching a peach orchard when s?uie of the fruit was ripe.
