" rwede," the Washington correspondent of the
Cincinnati Commercial. says :
The respectability of the country will experi
ence a common satl-faction in lieverdy Johnson's
alpointment to the Euglish mission. In like man
ier r ill it appreciate the generous and promot
crt;filnation of the Senate, led by Senator Sum
ner, who is so little given to panegyric upon his
political opponents that on this occasion his ea.
cgy had more than the merit of its hearty good
taete; it rose aouve scholarship to m-nlihoes.
TLat there are gentlemen in Maryland it Is not
row treason to say, and both Reverdy Johnson
and Ge(;rge Vickers are worthy of the htste's good
breediug. loth were Union men when the ear
hest drums beat: neither, to any recollection of
n ine, ever opposed fractious or frank resistance
to the perfect sunciess of the war. After it was
over they fell back to the State's conservative
place, butReverdy Johnson has been favorable
to the recocntructton measures of the ltopnbitcin
party. and wri il. therefore, not have been re
turned to the Senate on the expiration of his term
1i, 1;I:. H1e is the o!des, senator. Seventy-two
years, says the directory of Congress. but seventy
seven says ran or. ItH was born at Annapo)!is
at me years before the death of Wnhingt,,n, and
has served his State in every hard working ca
lacity, for the past sixty years. He is probably
the best constitutional lawyer living, and his per
sonal dignity of character has deeper foundations
than the law : it is built in honor, patriotism and
cheerful circumstantial conviction.
reverdy Johnson has always had, to me, the
look of one of the inmre voluptuous Ionian em
ierors. Perhaps I get the idea from a remem
trance of G;erome't picture of the Colosseum.

know that it is often a mistake to julae public
tmen by these facial marks. Mr. Johnion slis be
ide, lost one eye, and, while this does not make
I im at all unsightly, it gives a humorous esugtes
tion of the arena to his face. His ears are large,
like thoseof nearly all senators. Politicians have
ashitually big ears. H:s head is elid and larg.-,

A contemporary wisely asks the council to im
mediately consider the necessity of appointing
some apt and reliable person to inspect the meats
sold in the various private markets of this city,
and suggests the name of Mr. Claverte, an old
butcher of this city, who has applied for the podi
tion a a ailtable appointment. The selection of
Mr. Claverie would be an excellent one, hot wh ,
ever the choice may be, the council should
awaken to the necessity of having these markets
sie-ted eaily and rigidly inspected. Many lives
might be saved by timely action.

tesclution paused a tirt and e, or! reading.
Mr. Kaiser gave notice that he would move a
recunslderatun at :he next meeting.
A motion to adjourn was lost.
The metlon to go into the election of chairman
of the itanre cormmittee was then ad pted. Mr.

i pon the suggestion of Mr. O'Brien, who remarked
that the nice should seek the man, and not the
man seek the office.
A first and second ballot failed to elect, neither
of the candidatea receirving a majority of "he votes
cast. The result of the third ballot was: Poy
not 4, Zacharie 3 and Shields 2.
Mr. Poynot now moved that in case no election
should result from the next ballot, that the candi
date receiving the lowest number of votes should
be dropped. Adopted.
The result being the same as before, Mr.
Shields's name was dropped.

Shields voting blank). No election.
A motion by Mr. Poynot to compel members to

At this juncture Mr. Brady absented himself
with permission from the chair.
Another motion to go on with the election was

Another motion to adjourn was lost.
Two more ballots with no satisfactory result be

was subjecting itself to the ridicule of the people
and the excorlatsons of the press, which he ex.

therefore, move to adjourn until this evening at 5
These timely remarks seemed to allay the ex

THE PUBLIC s8lO01. EXAMINATIONS
THE BECOND DISTRICT SCHOOLS.
It is not unfreqnently the case that labor looked
forward to as arduous and unwelcome suddenly
becomes transformed into a p'easant duty. SuBochb
has certainly been the case thus far, as regards
our attendance upon the various exercises of the
public schools, now daily in progress. In place
of the weary dull children, dreary school rooms,
aistere instructors and a meagre knowledge of
studies, which Dickens in hls stories is wont to
portray, we have encountered at every step in
telligence and thorough comprehension of the
branches pursued, teachers loving and beloved,
fresh lowers and evergreens adorning the school
rooms, andl hundreds of bright, happy boys and
girls, with the light of life and youth sparkling in
their eyes, the dawn of the coming generation
btnamped upon their brows, and ever present
smiles upon their lips. It has been everywhere
the same. The children happy, the teachers
proud of them, and underlying all their Inter.
course a discipline such as can only be
maintained by mutual affection and respect.
We could go on in this strain, and write much
more than our space will permit; we could dilate
upon the system with wh:ch the schools are con
ducted, the adiirsable attention which they re
ceive at the hands of Superintendent Rogers,
Prof. Dimitry and the School Board; we might
tell how Assistant Treasurer Mouney rode around
in a carriage yesterday to all the schools he could,
carrying with him tin immense bundle of city
money for paying the teachers, and foding at the
close of his labors that from $12,000 to $156,000
had been disbursed; but all these little matters
must be passed by for the present as, alighting
from the Rampart street car, we tind ourselves at
the entrance of the
RAMPART OTlIIIT (GIRLS') SCIIOOL.
The exterior of the building gives no indica
tion (I its use as a school house. It differs not a
whit from a dozen residences on either side; but
eeping in through the gateway, lo-a human
bee-hive is before yoi. The pa ved yard is swept
east and clean as the deck of a fiigate,and under
the sheds at one side are benches and chairs In.
dlcative of the school ronoi. But on the left is
the building; long galleries, from which doors
open at intervals into the different departments;
broad stairways leading up at either end to the
hscond floor; hundreds of children up stairs and
down stairs, moving or se ,ted, all dressed in white
wlth red and blue and scarlet sashes, all happy
and contented, while over all is heard a busy hum
and buzz, rc.mindig one of the whlispersin distant
plie trees. the front room, which opens
upon the street, is occupied by the classes
thLich come under the control and tuition of
hMrs. Dubois, the principal. Here we found this
lady, about to examine the first class in arithmetic.
S ihe room was decorated with dlowers and ever
greens, and over the foding doors openinog into
the adjoining room wai draped t·atetully a lace
curtain, with cords and tassels. Upon the black
hoard surmounted by a garland was inscribed the
Ifllowing, viz: "Roll of honor- entire school:
Anna El zaTracy. First atnd second classes: Misses
F. Marette, C. Muniter. M. O'D)nnell, L. Martin,
A. Murphy, L. cllierman, S. sasinoti. . Barnett,
J. Burt st, in, M. Davern, C. Glesser and L. Grieff."
liI the atithmetical examination, Misses fracy and
Murphy particularly distinguished themselves at
the hard. acd lohses Clara Klemm and Lizzie
Grie!abo wed lu some examples in compound frac.
tli u worked correctly and neatly upon their slates.
'I len Miss rabsinot. first assistant, ex mined her
French classes, the first of which read in
turns, Voltaire's " Famine de Pa is," and the
oscond, some siiipier sentences and phra.
cc.. We were particularly pleased with
Miss Hilari-t's accent and pronunciation
in the former reading, and could in all sincerity
corpluenu t Miss asscinot upon the profiiency of
her pupils in the French grammar as well as elo
cutuon. Mlas King, third assistant, who hts
clarge of the primary department, welcomed us
royally to her apartment, and exhibited some
.;,ry creditable specimens of writing by her
pupils. From this room we departed baring a
bouquet as a pleasant remembraccer of its occnu
pants. Then there were some very interesting
dialogues and declamations by the little ones,
preceded by music upon the piano by Misses
Grieff and Hilariut. From Miss bchliermaun's
islent class came a pretty little blue-eyed girl
ornly five years old, Miss E. Kesler, who recited
" You'a scarce expect" with a cuaning sweet
ne-s; Miss B. Parlongue sang a French song;
Miss fillariot recited very prettily a poem called
" Now-a-days''"; Misses O. Jont6 and B. Par
longue, very drolly and well, a dialogue called
" A Rat or a Mouse"; and Misses M. Deloney
and J. Washington another entitled " The Old
-late." The -chool numbers about :l0 popi's, at
the head of whose roll of honor, by the unani
mous vote of her ltllow-studeuta, stands Miss
Anna Eliza Tracy.
It was with no little reluctance that we flnally
took our departure from tits interesting scene,
having first partaken 01 a handsome rcpa.t,
sp read f,,r the entertainment of guests, under the
auspices of Mrs. Grieff.

again in coming years. The lower departments
are well scstained under the Misses M. L. Gaule

F. Boiron. We must now acknowledge our oblI

to pilot us through various winding ways to the

Mr;:J. B. Soraparn, principal, who also has a

which she won for it in former years. aMiss J.

are in charge of the lower departments, and are

close our review of this school and not notice a
slight want of discipline. which a visitor would
not expect to meet on examination day.
THE tAVOI ROAD UIIRL' Clil)OL
ls a mode! of the public school system, and the
very entinently qualiiied lady who presides as
principal over the studies and moral training of
the pupils committed to her care, is a very para
gon of what a teacher should be. She has been
identified with, and tasnght the principal schools
of the city. Sbe is at present instructiog the seo
cud generation, having taught some of the moth
t re'of her pretent pupils, and yet she is compar
itively neglected-the rooms are, tO say the least,
tutirely unsuited for instruction, being too small,
badly ventilated, alnd uncomfortable for teachers
and echolars. 0, for a tongue t i bless the man
who could rise above radical corruption and re
der m our city monrey from brokers and the geu
works. to build such schools as are needed here.
But under all the disadvantages, she has a bright
little army of learners, among whom we noticed
Mary McCollough, who declaimed so feelingly
that she won the last rose from our button-hole;
and a composition by Miss F. E lwards, is worthy
o' all prain. The rooms were so filled with visitors
thai we were unable to gain an entrance to the
other departments; but the success of Mrs. Bigot
as principal, is enough to guarantee that her as.
sletanta are ladies of no ordinary attainments.
Two hnndred pIpsl are on the rll of this schoo',

of a Brirtish i ficen and an American hostess,
v hich could not be excelled by any children of
any country, andt we take it as testimnny of the
great interest which Prof. Dilnutry has maintained
for the colored schools. We niet him at the Du
main Street Colored School for Boys and
Girls, where he exatined the popils very
c irefully, and expressed his unbounded
appreciation of their prgress under the present
