The Fystem— Methods Fmployed— lts The
ory and Practice— The Results Ob
tained—A Teacher's Views
The nmmi belief obtains in the minds
of some residents of this city that the school
known as " Ucgraded School No. 4," situ- i
ated at Twenty fourth and R streets, is a I
Kindergarten. This has i>ecn c&uaed to a j
great extent by a want of information as to ;
Ihe methods used in teacuicg in thie school, j
and incorrect impressions made by reason of '
a recent publication in other co!u:iiEs tliao ;
thete. The school i 3 the out?rowt!» of the ]
agitation some three years 6incj coucerning !
th.. pricey syttem. That is a system !
in which object teachiug is the j
m.»t prominent feature, objects being «std !
almoßt exclusively ia the earl'c.* yeirs of a
cbild"a traiuing. When, oi.e jvar »l'O, the I
Board of Education established the Twenty
fourth Btreet kc'.i > 1, it was ordered that it
sh'.u:ube"a simi-kindergarten and an ob
jective school." In accordai-c* with this
order some of the features and methods of the
kindergarten have b-en introduced ir.to the
lowest, or the eighth j;rade. It in believed by
the Board and it. ..-•.■ iutrusted with this
school, that the mode of instruction used in
the kindergr-rten system is conducive to the
ends to be atti.ined ia the process of primary
instruction, v'z : to arouse the attention, and {
to cultivate habits of accurate obser- I
vation. While there is no " class in \
kindergarten," thera is a veritable srhooi
consisting of tho four primary grades, which t
an required to ba taoght the bwe branchts
as those taught in scho !-i i.f < orreipondirg
grades tlsewhtre in the city. It the method
cf instruction difif=rs from that of other
■ehooltj tiie aims are the eanje, iind it 13 be
lieved th*t the recalls obtained from tie
woik will bear out the assertion that the ad
vaace in th>»e ciitscs has be n more ra: ii

The subject was fuund so prolific of eug

been _ multiplied almost indefinitely ; but
si ill -itiit has been given, probably, to indi

! be added that after one year's experiment the
t«a.:Lers of the tchool and the Board of Edu
cation if the city are entirely satisfied with
tha progress made. In mat.y respects it has
; exceeded expectation, and ou the results at

Hi: Kuw Am. About Comets.— The

few evei-in^s since one of the employe* at the
Stnta Capitol concluded, after hearing si
much about the comet and its beauty, that he
would like to see it for himself. Accordingly
he made his poxpoan known to seven] of his
acquaintsnren, and they all agreed to stay
jup and watch for the comet. During
! the intervening hours he entertained
j his companions with a history of tho
comet of 1812, of which he had a distinct
I recollection, that on oi,e oocmlob it ti»rte.l

About 375 people assembled at the new
Armory Hall on Sixth and L streets last
evening, to hear the addresses announced to be
delivered by Attorney- General Hart »Dd V,
A. Greg?. The meetini? was called to order
at 7:45 o'clock by J»hn Rider, Chairman of the
Republican Coaiity Control Committee. \V.
A. Anderson was chosen to preside. The fol
lowing list of Viej-I're-i.Jenta was then read :
X. L. Drew, Samuel Gottleib, A. S. Hopkins,
Nate Webb, O. P. Goodhue, William Bsck
!•■:.••, Stephen I'r-.n, S. H. Gerrian, Dan

Mr, AndersoD, io i i.« opening remarks, said
I that tha remark with which the Rotuau
orator Oat.i used to always open his ad
dresses, " Ddaidti ttt Carthago" — Ccrtha^e
mudt be destroyed — would, with a slight
change, be applicable to the present- occa
sion — The Democratic p»rty must be de
stroyed. The Democratic parly, the con
muaistic party, the party of treason, must be
destroyed, ila siij : They tall us there is
no difference between the Republican parcy —
the party <f pn^ress, the party which is al
ways right — and the party that utruck down
the flag, the party thit shot our soldiers — the
Democratic party. To cay there is no differ
etco between .he two parties he believed to
be an insult to the intelligence of every Re
publican y >ter in the land. The Republican
party, with its ftca always to the front,
sometimes loees a man from the rear, and he
U picked np by the Democratic party, which
is cs near as ihat party ever comes to being
right. That party reminded him of the buz
zard, which 1 ever wants anything until it in
rotten. But, as the people bad axsembied to
luten to other ept-akere, be would not tii-cuf i
those Bnbjects.
Attorney General A. 1,. Hart was than in
troduced. Ho lajkdu some remarks on the
history ond traditions of th"! two nnoiocnl
parties, then dim-i urs.-i on tha Sunday law
question to considerable length, dwelt on the
c;uei"tion of monopolies, revtrtcd to the Chi
nese question, atid closed by an addrees on
the s;raod record of tin Republican party.
He sh.ike or.^ hour ami fifty minutes to an
attentive audietca. There was ei>nHi!e Table
enthusiasm duriDg the cutiie speech, but the
beaten*: areou:.t of applause at any o: c time
was called forth by a remark the b'.ibstanca
if which was that when he was ridio? through
X! Dorado conoly on a rugged ufajecoocb,
thr null 0 drerchiis raio, h? was very glad
to reach Shingla Springs, at,i* he said t) a
ffllow-trawlfr, " Civil : z»ti-n has rMc'afd
th's \Aicz — the railraad managers have fo'ud
this plac, and Gid b)e=R them for the com
forts they have given the people."
Following tho ftddie-ES r,f General Hart the
President el th> craning ir.ade a fnw reniatk",
in wl: ; ch he «sJd that during the French rev
olution 01 17'.^, while the iVmetiuniats aud
mob were t neaped in their destructive octa,
the leaders proclaimed that they would de
stroy all the temples aud cathedrals ana
everything that reminded than of God acd
religion. Then tail an old Nationalist,
"You had better tear down the stirs of
heaven." It was so, he said, with the Dem
ocratic party; they say they "will destroy
every vestige of cur Christian Sabbath ;" and
I say they had better tiy to "pull down the
etais." The meeiing w»s then declared ud
journfd. Owing to the lateness of the hour
Air. Grege did not speak.
The meeting was the first political meetir.t;
that has been held in the new Armory Hail.
The ' ;.ii is certainly admiraMr a i.inted, and
it is understood that it will be u-ed for this
purpose oa future occacioci. The mtnatic

New Yokk, October I, ISS2.
The "Openings" in the retail dry goods aud millinery houses are
overshadowing to a great extent other local interests in the Great
Metropolis. It cannot be expected, in the face of a new costume or a new
hat, that the fairer portion of the body- politic would give attention to con
cerns of less personal importance ; and as the fair sex are supposed to give
flavor, if not pith, to all matters involving the social local situation, they
must be excused if, for the present, the absorbing idea is that connected
with the " wherewithal shall we be clothed ?" Openings do not occur
every day, aud as they answer the question of tha moment they cannot be
neglected. We must say in passing, however, that they were tadly inter
fered with by the late equinoctial Etorm. The atonn of two weeks pre
vious had left the impression with many, both in and out of trade, that the
equinoctial gale had spent itself, and that nothing more, for this season at
least, was to be feared from it. But not so. True to the instant it b-trst
upon up, gently at lirat, whilo increasing in strength and violence, until
leaving wrecks, disasters and deaths never to be forgotten in barometrical
remembrances. To face the raia, underneath waterproofs, cloaks and
umbrellas, to see the novelties and tha beauties in the stores, seemed a
small etl'ort on the part of ladies wont to keep track with "the newest
fancies out; " but to face the wind blowing with unprecedented fur}', with
umbrellas wrenched from tlie grasp, and danger from falling chimneys,
torn away ei^ns, aud the broksn and flying limbs of trees, and
also, perhaps, from falling walls, or bio .vn over buildings, was of
more serious c nsiJeratiou. Therefore, after the Wednesday of the
late equinox, the Openings of th*t week, in our city, were
charily attended — even the attractions of the various distinguished
inesdauits and mademoiselles in the millinery business, fail
ing to eiiirm tlxe more timid of Fashion's votaries from tha security of
hoaip, while the tempest shrii-ked or wailed in the streets. Yet, notwith
standing, there were thoee whern duty impelled to follow very cloaely in
the wake of the atorm, for instriuti'jn iv what Fashion is doing or intends ;
and of thosa thus impelled, there was, Messrj. \Y. and L , your corre
spondent. Aad, according to promise, the interests, especially, of the
prospective belles, or of misses and half-grown young ladies, were inquired
ef. As ha 3 been this cisc, for the la-it several seasons, the disposition on
tho part of the mode, in thj dress of misses, ia to keep children, children
indeed, in tbtir drC33 just as long as pDsaible. Thus we find a repetition
of tha Kuglish robe, or of the frock iv a single piece, instead of the two
or the three pieces which, ia soniD models, eater iuto the costume. In
many of the models shown, p%rtkular!y for small school-girls, the roba is
of the Trincesse style — all tho ornamentation and drapery being applied to
the long three-iourtln titting aaoque which is thu foundation of the frock,
l'retty models are perfected with from one to three or four plairings, or
plaited flounces on the Bkirt, Bnnneanted by drapery, thus form ; u^ p»naiers
which run into a bouti\uit arnngement o.; the biek ; a little carved
apron with the baok drapery, oi- a scarf of several close upward folds,
Is.rg3 enough to form into a groat Lip*, with shurl ends ou the back. In
somo madels the sacque is cut oil below the line of tho hips, and the deep
plaited llauoce forms a pUited a'.drt or k-.lt — this sewed on in a Beam to
the eicqae. Shirring and p'.iitin^ oa (he svaist, oi in ths waist, alter
also extensively in the fashioning of dresssa for girls. Tns fitting of
the waist, in some models', is aajompiished ia the shirring or iv the plait
ing, which ti'.la the center of the fro.it and of the bi;k, while ia some
models it is app'iod r.3 a plisiron ; an I w'.ien ia a widi single, double or
triple box-plait, it is sometimes set with buttons or is covered
with braid embroidery. The styles noticed encourage the
use of a single material, or of a combination of materials. \Ye
have examined very beautiful little frocks, for girla of fro-n G to
12 year?, of which the p'.aits in the kilt were ait3rnately of
plain flannel, cashmere, or cam^l's-hair cloth, and Raided or checked
serge ; plaided, checked and stiipel sluff} serve as relief to plain gooda
as the substantial portion of the costume, and vice versa, tha fancy stuff
serves as the foundation, with the expressive appliances of the mono
chrome materials. Contrasting colors of plain materials are frequently
combined in the miking of girls' drc3J3s, and plush and velvet, in both
the plaia-colured and the faacy varieties, are employed for relief
effects on tho plain and the fancy woolen stuffj, and on
plain gros-grain silk or satin. Aa hinted in a previous
letter, in advanca of bringing out to general observation, we
were shown tho pleasing costumes for MIMM aud half-grown girls, em
bracing the kilted skirt— some with simple drapsry on the skirt and tbo
basque waist, and some with the pjloniise, a3 the ovor-dress — tho plaits ef
the skirt overlaid with a narrower strip of some relieving color— blue on
red, or rel on blue, or brown on ecru, for example. More elegant crea
tions strip the plaits and make the expressive appliances of velvet or
plush of self-color or contrasting color ; an.i in some models tho cos
tume is complemented by a pelermn or c:u,:Vnan's cape of velvet or plush
— the latest csprics running out the ri^ht side of the cap?, and in several
plaits confining it on the left shculdor under a knot of ribbon. Kibboa
bows, in fact, still constitute tha fanciful iinish to many of the more ele
gant of the costumes for yoang gills. We have been pho-^n suits in both
plush and velv-.t, the skirt kilted and set to a waist yoke, wiih the panniers
canght up in front under a bow of satin ribbon, and bows garnishing the
waist and the sleeves ; or I'ac pnloaiise beiag thi overdress, t'.ie looping
at the sides is confined by a low of ribbaa or a knotted taaselled cord.
Acd tasselled cords and coree-embroidery constitute favorite ornamenta
tion on costumes for both young girls and grown-up women.
The .Girondin hat, or that with the semi-conical crown and the
wide brim, seemi to be, for the present, the most popular of all the
fashionable shapes for th-j young folk: though in girls' hafa all the
shapes extant are repeated ; acd poke ehapea in bocnata will again be
worn. Smooth felt has precedence of beaver, while beaver hats are
continued ; and beaver-brimmed and beaver-edged hats and bonnets are
at election for girls, as for their mammaa. A simple and becoming
method of trimming — in which, by the by, there is nothing new — con
sists of a row of silk pompons around the crown of the ha:—supple
mented, it may be, by a little tuft of ostrich tips or a stuffed bird on
the left side— and on the edg^ of the brim a band of chenille plash in
little balls, or of ridge 1 chinelle plush cut bias — the tffoct being of a
heavy rope of plash. We have also noticed girla' hats prettily trim
med with satin ribbon enfinei in plac3 by small gilt pins with faceted
or pearl heads, supplemented by a staffed bird, a tuft of tips, or a
pompon of cock's feathers on the left side ; while full ostrich plumes,
with or without asaistanca from staffed birds, and plumes of fancy
feathers, do abundant doty in the girnitare «f head-dr£sses|for the
young, and in certain models, draperies of velvety plush and Batin are
in requeat.
