The examination ol the lower de

yesterday in the presenco of many of the
parents of the pupils and friends of tho
schools. Miss Wal bridge's and Miss

greatest satisfaction U expressed by all
who were present with the progress
made by tlie pupils and the eiQciency ot
our system. At the conclusion of the
examination In Mis) Walbridge's room,
that laJy was the recipient ot a handsome
gift Irjm her pupils. The gift
consisted ot a handsome vase
and some other articles. Mr.
W, H. Morris, at tbo solicitation of
some of the scholars made the presen

most appropriate manner. Miss Wal
bridge was taken completely by surprise,
and in return made some feeling re
marks acknowledging the pleasure it
gave her to know that the children under
ber charge appreciated her eflorts to in
struct them; Miss Walbridge is one cf the
best teachers in our schools.
An election tor three members of the

early in April. The members whose
terms expire are Mr. F. Korsemeyer and

exists. Whether Cant. Halllday and
Mr. Korsemeyer will consent to stand
tor re-election we do not know, but if
they will there is but little doubt that
they would be elected without serieus
opposition. Both gentlemen have given
much time and attention to the afiairs
ot our public schools, and to them in a
great measure is due tho success which
has crowned our schools, and the good
name they bear abroad. Who will be
selected to till the vacancy In the board
cannot be foretold. In this connection
we will state that it Is reported that the

Some time ago a petition was elrcul
ated In the city and received the sig
natures of some two or three hundred
citizens asking the governor to pardon
the man Tom Kills, convicted at the
May, 1877, term ot the circuit court on a
charge of horse stealing. While there is
little doubt that Ellis Is guilty of the
charge on which lie was convicted, there
are some circumstances surrounding his
case which make it one worthy the at
tention of the governor. Ellis was not
alone in the transaction for which
he was sent up. ' There was
a man by the name ot Abcrnatby impli
cated in the matter aud they were indict
ed jointly lor the crime nnd no distinction
was made. However, when court came
on, they demanded separate trials which
were granted, and the result was that
Abornathy was acquitted while Ellis was
convicted and sentenced to the penitent
tiary. It is certain that it Abernathy
was innocent so was Ellis, and he should
not have .been convicted; but it Ellis
was guilty so was Abernathy. and he
shonld have been convicted. Ellis has
been In the penitentiary now nearly a
year, and It is said that his health is
failing fast, and that unless pordoneed
out he will die before his term, expires.
Ellis' friends are moving in the matter
and believe they will succeed In securing
hit release. - .
