The forenoon was devoted to the et-

the High school building. The exercl-vs
were ot an Interesting and entcrtaialnir

the large number ot visitors present with
satisfaction and delight. Tin? teachers

the afternoon, rooms three and four
tan sr hi respectively by Miss Foss and

and as iu i no Thirteenth street school on
the day pre Vious, the examinations were
most thoron and searching. The
pupils were pu to the hardest tests ; and
the readiness anvl ability with which they
gave their answer to all questions must
be accepted proof ol tho
thoroughness of the course ot in
struction they are .revolving. Where all
do so well it Is perhaps unjust to single
out any particular department or teacher

from paring Miss Pattiaou .aud the pu

saying that the manner In which they
acquitted themselves was creu'ltable in

The examination ol the grammar de

took place yesterday. As the exercises at
the various departments ot the scheols
were all in progress at one and the same
time, we had to divide our time between
them, and hence spent but a short time
in the colored school. But from what
we saw, and others . have told us,
we are able to say that the examination
gave proof of great progress on the part
of the scholars in this department. The
classes in algebra, geography and arith
metic were examined thoroughly, and
to all ot the numerous questions put
them by the white visitors "present, they
answered promptly and correctly iu ev
ery instance. The school Is one of the
most orderly and attentive we have ever
had the pleasure of visiting, and the
scholars all seem to be Imbued with a
single purpose that ot making the most
