The motion and the points of law on winch it la baaed was very elaborately argued, and the ruling of Judge Cadwallader. of Philadelphia, who issued oa Injunction in a somewhat similar case, referred to as entitling the plaintiffs to the Injunction cow sought.

Mr. Hknrv Mrmuv (who was not present at the last meeting of the Board) explained bis vote, and in so doing aalegtaed the democwMe party. He ticoght that It would be eetiibliKhing a bad precedent, to depart, from the cuetora of Cnnp'se and all legislative bodies, by talcing the power of appointing tbe committees out of tbe hands of the/President. Tlie customs of tbo demo cratic party should be observed, and be asked to be ex cused from voting. Before betook his seat Mr. filacom approached him, Hr. Hartman meantime occupying tbe attention of the Board. The necessary light hav ing been given, Mr. Murray withdrew his objections amid tbe ap plause of the lobby, and voted In the affirmative. Mr. f-'rsrmcx Rohicrts, la explaining his vote, said that he considered that the introduction of this resolution was nothing but ? threat, oud he would vote to sustain the President If tbe power of appointing committees were taken out of his hands, the Board could make a change every week if the proposed precedent were es tablished. Mr Gllmore changed his rate before tbe result was announced. Mr. O'Brien's resolution was adopted by a vote of 16 to H. Among tbe general orders adopted was a resolution Appointing nn assistant sergeant-at-arms for the Board, atasalarvof $1,200 per annum. While the vote waa hcinc called. Mr. W. B. Roberts observed that he did not see the need of the additional officer. Mr CiijtoKR (to whom tbe greet ?'democratic party" awarded positions on Ave committees) said something about not wanting to deprive an old men of the place, and voted in favor of the resolution, which was adopted. Tbts lathe first swindle passed by the Board, fbr It is well known that the sergeant-at-arms has nothing to do but to recline In hi" comfortable chair during tbe pro ceedings, and as the belligerent members hare resolved to let "by-gones be by-gones," the main reason which conld lie assigned for the appointment of aa assistant sergeant-at-arms falls to tbe ground. o<>von* son tbs first cavalrt muoxpr. A resolution was adopted granting a stand of colon fo the Fin' brigade of cavalry, VaMoc.d Guard. A resolution was adopted directing the clerk to far nish the members of tbe Board with badges, inkstands, stationery, and all other con venlonces and requisites, to suable them to discharge their official duties during the jcar. The Board tdlourned till Monday at fbur P. M. BOARS OF SUKRVSIOftt The Board at Supervisors had a meeting <m the ?iilt i>f December (Ml. In the official minute* of that meet - Intr is a record stating that $19,878 was appropriated and ordered to be paid to lnaentoll, Watson * da for fnrei lure for the new county Court House. The strange feature ahoot this if, that, it did not pass the Beard in en audible manner, but war entered upon the minutes as a part of the proceeding*.

This condition Ivung complied with the money war accordingly paid in the manner a'Htre described; and tbe reason of all this was Hist the Boant of Supervisors desired to create toe impression tt Albany that tin- tmlldinr is neeriy flnislied in order that the appropriations inserted in the levy tor ils completion would be fully allow -l one! an oonor ,unity afforded for ha- ng them repeated u*xt year, riiedc are understood to be the tacts in this ma'ier.'

By this bill the preaent Board of Education la abolished, aa are aleo the inspectors and the twenty-two ward boards of tratoaea In the place of all thane officers, a oomaataaiOD el eevea members la established, styled the Metropolitan Board of Public Instruction, with full power to manage the schools, and appotnbell the necessary teachers and other employee, and generally to perform such acta aad make such expenditures aa they shall deem necessary for the schools The members of this commission are to hold office for eight years, are to be nominated by (be Gov ernor of the State. and ere to receive e salary of to,Odd per annum. The change la sweeping. It remotes from office * body of man, many of whom are freah from the people, end very many of them citlaena ef the tint standing lw the community; It takes away from tho peopB all wtoda in the management of the schools for wbleh they pay ae liberally aisd cheerfully; and it amnmea thai eerea men, selected in the manner proposed, will manage with greater purity, efficiency and economy theee great la terals which for twenty years hare been cared fbr by the present system, modi lied end improved after wcooea a v e periods or trial. When any class of men seeks so radical a change a* this there ought to be grave reason* for each an inter ference. The interests of Common Schools ought not to be disturbed for slight or sordid reasons. They touch deeply every number or the community. With them everv other interest is more or less closely linked?the family, the church, the market, the courts of law, lbs Tery purity and ex.stence or the government itself. It is this cause of free education thus Intimately connected with the popular welfare, and arrested for party par poses midway in its career, that now stands before the bar of public opinion and asks to be heard in its defence. ITS PAST HISTOUT. The beginning of common school instruction in thie city reaches back inlu the history or the Public School Society. As early as tbe year 1805 De Witt Clinton, with such men as Brockbolta Mtidvm?b, Hubert Bowne, Archi bald Grade, Leonard Rleecker, Daniel D. Tompkins and twenty-one other well known citizens were incorporated as a society for "estaollshing a free school in tbe city of New York, for the education of such poor children as da not belong to, or are not provided for by any religious society." Tbe school organized under this act of Incorporation was essentially a school for the poor. But instruction aa a gratuity did not meet with fat or among thoaa it was la tended to reach. In spite of Uie self-denying labors of the incorporators themselves, and of tho catholic and libera) spirit with which the school was conducted; in spite of tbe deep interest that the rich and cultivated and philan thropic took in its success, tbe people hesitated to accept education given as alms. Tbe school was nto well at tended. In the year 1838 the name or the corporation wee changed from Free bchool aocr ty to Public ttcheoi Society, and tbe doors of tbe schools, which had been gradually increased in number, were thrown open to all; the poverty qualification was dropped and theme who could pay were permitted to do so. This was a tonas distinction quite as marked us the former feature, aad did not meet with greater popular favor. In the year 1829 tbe Legislature enacted that a tax for common schools in the ritv of New York should he raised on property, and the school svsiem became, from that time, to all clasps, generously free. Managed with singular judgment and economy, and String from year to year In popular favor, the system I Ita enemies. It was on one baud charged with anti Catliolic tendencies, in iu boo'ts and in ilatoachinca It was, on the other hand, veh mently denounced a* man aged by a body of men removed fr m and indupendaai of the people, who paid the taxes tor public education which the society controlled. In 1842 the Governor of the State was moved by She a* oitemeui which the contn>v?i.-:y l>od produced tu ufge upon the Legislature, in his annual mensagn. some change which should bring tbe school syiitosa nearer te tbe whole people. In this recommendation are found these op-meratos words ?-"1 submit, therefore, the expediency ef vesting in the people of the city ef New York what I am sore the people of no other part of Hie State would, upou any couudeiatlon, relinquish?tlie education of their chil dren. For this purpose it is only necessary to vest tho control of the' ommon Schools In a Board to be composed of Commissioner- elected by tbe people, wbleh Board shall apportion tbe -c.hooi moneys among ail the schools, including those now existing, which shall beer Clined and conducted iu corf u mity to Its general reg<> Kmnandthe laws of tbe .Staia, in proportion te lli* number of pupils i us true ted. It Is not left doabtfol, that tbe restoration to lbs Common Schools of the city ot thia simple aud equal feature of the Common Schools of the Piute would remove every complaint." In accordance with this recommendation, a bill passed tbe Legislature the some sea-Ion?1842?placing the management ol tbe school* utid<-r Commissioners, True ices and Inspectors elected hy the people, but allowing the Public School Society to retain control ef ita own reboot- aad to partic.pate in the public moneys. Thence forwird. for eleven years, free edecatioa moved in two separate channels?inn Public school **? eiety and the ward school sy*tem. Tbe movement was incongruous. It became plainer aud plainer tliat Iba two systems could not live trgcihor in the same com munity, and in 1853 the schools of the PubMr Kchool Society passed, by ionpent ot thai tiody itaelf, under the care of the Board*of Education aud tbe members or the society became merged m the Boaid of Education, or the local Boards. Tbe infusion of this new element was of groat value. The experience of a hotly of self-denying men, Identified for so long a lime with tbe sc'iool*. found a fitting plane in the new arraugf meni, which at uuce assumed a ?on. m.mdiug place. Tben followed a |>eriod of rrnduai consolidation aad adjustment. Prom time to lime modlfr-ation- were made In the law. Tbe flist difficulty that manifested ifelf wh* in the powers of the local bo?r<'< Much of their a-tinn was independent, separate aud contradictory?one an ef rules prevailed .u cue ward and another in the next ad jarent. The expenditure of money was unequal. The system of instruction was different as well astbeeub jerts taught. It woe necessary to harmonise these, and Una could only bo done by placing them under general reputations. This wv< accomplitoed by plaemg ail the local boards of trustees under reneral mice adopted to Che Beard of Education. Flowing wot of these naturally came systematic supervision?a general system of in struction and exiwnditure* within apportioned hmile After theee improvements had lawn mils there was gradually developed aa inequality of repmantauna m the Board of Bdneation Used. The lower birtww wards, with few schools aad a small number ef scholars were equally repre anted with the ward# that edaeatmt thousands of children. To remedy tow tho laa was panned n tbe shape that M uow -lauds. This ke known aa tbe law >rf 1844. This law divides the city fbr arbooi purpose* rute seven dtotricta and twenty-two ward*. These districts unite the wards en a* to divide the school population as equally aa poos ibis Each of lb see districts send* three Hommteaioner* to .the Board of Education, which is thu* composed of twentr one members The Commissioners hold office fur three years, one going out of office each year. Ou-third ef the Board?seven member**- in this manner goes bofore the people annually. By this law Hie local Board' of Trustees were redcoed from eight members to five?one member being elected annually ? and holding office for live yuan. The Inspectors were created with new and enlarged powers are iiiyreata-d to an equal number with tbe com win-toner*, ere io hold office tor the same time end rep resent corresponding districts; but in place ef being ciectod by the people are nominated by the Maror and eVcted by the Board of Education. It will thus to seen that the ay stem has been one of gradual and true growth; that it has, step by atep, ntted itaelf to ibe in creasing and standi I v developing wants of the-rbiiols; that it has been modified from lime io time so ?- to se em* unitv and conformity; and that the system is not a dead fungus, but a real, vital force and en energetic life. It is tbhi system elaborated with groat care, hardly yet In lull opt ration, and the beueitr al effects of whuh are already beginning to be felt, that the present bill before tbe legislature would sweep away. Certainly the sub ject should have a lull consideration. It is still to be said tbst, waiving tutirely the riiwt us sion of the general question of commissions; nay, even granting, lor the aske of argument, that when great cor ruptions under popular vote may have increaard. they may he proper, yet it,baa been shown that these cor ruptlons do not exist in tbe present case; tbat the sup port oi the school system by the people is an intelligent support; that they have repeatedly broken ewav from party ties te unite on proper men, and that to disregard all this by the passage oi eucti an act as la now be.ote t he Legislature, would be a moat grievous wrong No words csn more appropriately conclude what hs? been written than that meet weighty utterance of the Governor of Hie State, under whose recommendation tbe preeent school system was organized in 1842:?
