The commemoration service, in
honor of the four hundredth anni
versary of Doctor Martin Luther's
birth took place at Kort St. Church
on Sunday morning, the building
being crowded. The. church had
put on its festive garb, the pulpit
and choir being a mass of roses and
Prayers and Testament readings
were given by llevs. Cruzan, Mcr
ritt and Hyde. The service opened
with a violin and organ voluntary,
.'Schumann's Traumcric" by Mrs.
A. P. Judd and Mr. Varndlcy. The
Church choir-sang "1 waited for the.
Lord," the solo parts being taken
by Mrs. Cruzan and Mrs. Handford.
The rest of the music, by congrega
tion and choir, consisted entirely of
Luther's beautiful hymns "All praise
lo Thee, eternal Lord," "Good news
from heaven the angels bring," ''A
safe stronghold our God is still."
Dr. Damon delivered a very in
teresting commemorative sermon,
dwelling upon the1 salient points of
Luther's life. He said that the day
was celebrated throughout America,
that the Emperor of Germany de
dared it a legal holiday and had or
dered Commemorative services in
all German Churches.
The service was under' the an
spices of H. P. Glade Esq. German
Consul, and the German residents,
a larcc number of whom were pre
sent. ' Mrs. Judd played all the
accompaniments, and contributed
greatly to the success of the service.
FORT STREET SCHOOL. "
We had scarcely reached the door
of the room of the principal (Pro
fessor M., M. Scott) before that
gentlemau met us with hands exten
ded and fricndlv ercetinc. Provided
with seats on the dais we -were
struck with the very bad light in the
room, the work on some of the
blackboards being invisible from the
professor's point of vantage. There
were 21 pupils present; three
belonging to the high school course,
were engaged in another room, and
three were absent. The class of the
ninth grade we did not sec nhwork,
so that our remarks arc confined to
the seventh and eighth. Silence,
order and. attention pervaded the
loom, though a few wandering eyes
wondered what we were "up to."
We were told that the three more
advanced pupils were "in the first
year of the high school course,"
and had been ''eight years at
Instruction in Algebra was the
order of the hour, and, though but
beginners in it, the pupils, as a
whole, did their work well, showing
a thorough knowledge1 of the plus
and minus signs, and inaptitude for
the arrangement of the various
powers of x and y. The principal
regretted that the "Course of study"
compelled iilm to teach Algebra, as
he ''did riot believe in its general
utility," and he said that he would
prof er"dcyptihg' the time to "geome
try nnd,'nrithmetic ;" at present lm
luufctbigo: through arithmetic "in
one term." He. also explained that
promotion was "based, .on monthly
reports' and j'carly examinations,"
He did not "teach music, singing or
drawing;" he advocated the appoint
ment of one teacher for instructing
these branches in. all the , public
rcIiooIs, and, with that idea, ho
"had called upon Mr. Yurndlcy to
learn if that gentleman were willing
to undertake that branch." He
taught natural science "at odd
times," when he had an opportunity ;
leaBoh's in physiology wore taught
1 '.verbally" and he was better able
to" instruct "from charts than from
The pvofesBor then explained "Ilia
Hobby," and a good one it is. He
had, "after years at school and
collego," found out from "his own
experience" that he was unable to,
write a "decent composition," he
.rjjjliad neve? been taught bow to "ex
it, ' press WBthoughta in writing," 'and,
when called upon to do
that he "couldn't doit.",
foro mnkes it
a special object to
give his pupils a. subject
them to write it brief ossny thereon,
or j,c reads them an extract from a
book and asks them to reproduce
their ideas of what he lias read to
them. A number of these composi
tions were handed to us for inspec
tion, and they wcro decidedly good.
Two of them, taken promiscuously
from the work of the whole class,
wc have already published.
The seventh grade were then
asked to write, on blackboards, a
sentence dictated to them. The
sentence was a very difficult one and .
produced some ludicrous mistakes.
"Symmetry" was written "ceme
try," " harassed " appeared as
"barest," "unparalleled" and ."em
barrassment" were distorted, and
one boy told us that it was "an
amusing circumstance to perceive a
pedlar gauge a cemetery," as if he
were selecting his last resting place.
The following information was
also supplied by the principal, in
answer to various questions. Ho
objected to his classes "learning
Latin before they knew English,
spelling and composition, thorough
ly." He did not instruct them in
"patriotism or clemcuts.of a national
character" as set down in the
"Course of study" (of which he had
not a copy). All lessons and.classcs
"were regulated," they knew the
"exact time in each week of their
work." He used "his' own judg
ment" in regard to their instruction,
and it was "not compulsory to get
books from, the Board of Education ;"
"no members of the board or par
ents of the pupils had visited the
school this term;" he ".courted
inspection, but didn't get it;" his
classes were "not" taught- Geog
raphy." The bell rang, the pupils went
through the regular course of drill,
compulsory before their departure
from the room, and marched out
quietly and regularly in single file.
They had a vacation for a few
minutes, and so had we.
To be Continued.
LORD DERBY AND AUSTRALIA.
The impression gains ground that
Lord Derby has made a great mis
take in refusing to allow the annex
ation of New Guinea. In the first
place he has rendered possible an
estrangement between the mother
country and her greatest and most
independent dependency. We have
no desire for this : on the contrary,
we would go a long way to avoid it.
such an annexation might increase
our imperial responsibilities, but it
is pretty certain that the'bulk of the
nation would rather accept a new
burden than quarrel with its promis-:
ing child. Lord Derby has clearly
failed to understand British feeling
in this respect. It seems probable,
too, that he is still much in the dark
as to the advantages of annexation.!
New Guinea, according to latest ac
counts,, would richly repay colonisa
tion. The most glowing descriptions
are now published of the resources
of the island ; its 'prolific; although
still, unexplored, mines; its rooks so
closely resembling those of the Aus
tralian gold fields; its fertile soil
clothed with primeval forests, and
capable of the finest agricultural
development. The natives, are,, ,it
seems, a splendid race, still untu
tored savages, perhaps, "but not
evilly-disposed cannibals, and they
would not object to our ascendency,
provided we recognised their in
alienable rights in the land. If these
reports arc to be depended upon,
we may be sure that Lord Derby's
objections, however plausible, will
be eventually overruled. Extension
is the manifest destiny of the Aus
tralian colonies, and it must and
will proceed, in epito of all difficult
ties. If the colonists are really in
earnest in this matter they will as
suredly have their own way. It
will only be necessary for them tp
express their unanimous opinion in
favor of tho annexation policy to
obtain a complete if tardy and some
what grudging approval from home.
Lord Derby's views will bo consi
derably modified when ho has to
reply to a renewed request forniu
lated by tho whole of the Australlas.

Speaking? of. a recent Welsh
musical festival, TAfc says. The
vivacity of the audience reached its
climax on tho concluding da' of the
festival. Directly tho doors were
open a grand scrimmago took place
for the best scats. The people who
had only paid for the promenade
made their way over all obstacles
into the first reserved scats. Ousted
from thence, they clambered into
the orchestra, from thence into the
scats for the choir, which they
monopolised so completely that the
1,200 singers were unable to get
into the hall at all, and the great
choral concert had to be proceeded
with minus the chorus, in tho
manner of Hamlet without ,thc part
of Hamlet. , - '
