Close of the Sport—The King Shot- Prizes Won—Larger Attendance. As was anticipated, there was a considera ble Increase in the attendance of visitors at the Schuetzen Park yesterday, the dosing day of the tenth annual festival of the Sa vannah Schuetzen Gesellschaft. The danc lng pavilion presented a scene that remind ed one somewhat of former times, when the festivals of the Schuetzen Society were attended by all classes of our citizens, and the occasion was known as the American-German festival. Daring the afternoon numbers drove out In private con veyances or came by the cars, and in conse quence there was no difficulty in obtaining partners, and dancing was enjoyed with more than usual zest. The Guards Band played several very popular airs ou the ground, the music for the dancing being furnished by a string band. To the members of the society, of course, the shooting gallery was the centre of at traction, and the several contests were entered into with spirit. The shooting opened at 11 a. m., and continued, with slight interruption, until half-past five o’clock. There were quite a number of cur well known riflemen pres ent, who took part in the shooting at the Creedmoor targets, two and three hundred yards, several of whom were fortunate in win nine prizes. The King’s prize was won by Jacob Kai ser, who secured this distinguished honor among the Schuetzen last year, and there fore is to be doubly congratulated.

About quarter past six o’clock a large table was placed in a shady place In prox imity to the sbooting gallery, and the vari ous prizes were arranged thereon, and other preparations made for the presentation. The members of the society, headed by the Guards Band, formed in procession and marched to the table. This was the signal for a general outpouring of the merry throngs that filled the dancing pavilion, and in a few minutes the grounds presented a very attractive sight, a pleasurable ex citement prevailing in the crowd, as there was curiosity to learn who had been the lucky ones in the general contests. When everything was arranged Judge Wm. D. Harden, in a few forcible remarks, announced the winners and distributed the prizes, which was attended with considera ble meriment. After the prizes had been awarded, the band played a lively air and there was a return to the pavilion, where dancing was resumed and continued until the bell was ruDg announcing the departure of the last cars, and thus ended the tenth annual Schuetzenfest. AN ABMHD STATEMENT. The Import Duties at Savannah. Ia yesterday’s News appeared a tele graphic dispatch from W&sbiDgtou stating that certain gentlemen Interested In Port Royal, and desirous of having a naval sta tion at that port, had represented to the President that the import duties at Beaufort were in excess of those at Savannah and Charleston combined. The absurdity of this statement is apparent, and we were in clined to let it pass, as it seemed probable that the gentlemen had been misunderstood. As, however, it was an Associated Press dispatch, and has hence circulated generally throughout the coun try, and as our special corres pondent from Beaufort, during the session of the South Carolina Press Association, mentioned that a similar assertion had been made by the Mayor of Beaufort, It Is but proper to give it prompt and emphatic contradiction. A reference to the books of the Collector of Customs at Savannah shows that for the year ending the 30th of June, 1860, the receipts from duties at this port amounted to #70,154, while, for the same period at Beaufort, the duties were only #6,766. The duties collected at Savannah from July Ist, 1880, to May 10th, 1881, amount to #366,881. As these figures are official their accuracy cannot be questioned. A dispatch correct ing this misrepresentation has been sent through the Associated Press. Matrimonial. On Tuesday evening, May 10ih, at the Methodist church, in Blackshear, Ga., by the Rev. N. D. Morehouse, Miss Mattie F. Knoles, daughter of Captain D. £. Kcoles. to Mr. Wm. H. Belden, of Houston, Texas, A correspondent says: “The church was crowded with the friends of the bride, who was elegantly attired in a uress of white satin, orange blossoms, etc. After the cere mony many of the friends of the happy couple assembled at the family resi dence to effer their congratulations. After remaining a few days the groom will take his fair bride to his home in Texas. This marriage has been the event of the season in our quiet town, and it will be filled with regret when the time comes to bid good bye to one who, by her many virtues and amiability of character, has won such a warm place in the hearts of all who know her. Ihe parties are well known In Savannah."

We are Indebted for the following Inter esting facts connected with the history of Massie School to a distinguished citizen, noted for his Interest in educational mat ters. We present It In two parts, giving the second in our issue to-morrow, and feel assured It will be read with much Interest ; The Massie School building was erected from the proceeds of a fund, the charitable bequests of an old Scotchman, for educa tional purposes. Originally #5,000, it ac cumulated by judicious investment, until It reached the sum of #15,073 13, and for years was borne on the books of the City Treasurer under the head of “resources.” The bequest of $5,000 was paid over to the city in 1849. In compliance with an appli cation made by Messrs. Anthony Porter, John Stoddard and others, School Commissioners for the county of Cbatham, the City Coun cil of Savannah, by resolution of the sth of April, 1855, ordered that #9,000 of the above fund should be expended in the erection of a building, to be known as the “Massie School House.” The work was commenced In December following, aud to meet the cost of construction there were sold and turned over to Mr. Stoddard, the Treasurer of the Commissioners, the proceeds of twenty-one shares of Central Railroad stock (#2,248 50), two thousand shares of Savannah Gas Light stock, amounting to #5,397 88, #1,292 25 accumulated dividends on the above, and one coupon of r. Southwestern Railroad bond for #35. There remained In the custody of the city 188 shares of Savannah Gas Light stock, and one bond of the Southwestern Railroad, which balance was also transferred to the School Commissioners, by resolution of Council, for educational and other pur poses connected with t.he erection and equipment of the Massie Bchool House, making the total amount paid over to Mr. Stoddard #15,073 13. The edifice was completed on the Ist of October, 1856, and the school organized on the 15'h of the same month, opening with about 150 pupils in attendauce. The num ber soon thereafter increased to 225—45 of whom paid a tuition fee, and the rest in attendance without charge. The building was calculated to accommodate 280 scholars, to be presided over by 6 teachers, the whole system to be under the control and manage ment of the Bchool Commissioners hereto fore cited. Two years later, in 1858, the Massie School was placed under the entire man agement of the city authorities, with a Board of Commissioners, consisting of the Mayor, four Aldermen and four citizens, Instead of three School Commissioners, as heretofore. The Massie fund having been entirely exhausted in the erection and equip ment of the school house, and the Scnool Commissioners in debt, the City Council on the 24t.h of December, 1857, appro priated #3,000 per annum for the future support of the school, and author ized the Mayor to pay the out standing bills, amounting to #1,258 52. The further sum of #3,247 59 was paid for teachers’ salaries, stationery and sun dries. The scholastic year of the Massie Bchool closed on the 30th of July, 1858, with an average number of pupils dur ing the year of 270. Under the third rule adopted under the new organization for the government of the board, Dr. Richard D. Arnold, Thomas M. Turner, Mayor, and Edward C. Anderson were appointed a visiting committee “to super vise the school generally, and to visit it when each or all may think necessary. At a meeting of the School Commissioners, held on the 6th of August, the following teachers were elected for the year; Princi pal, Bernard Mallon: Senior Department, Mrs. Charlotte L. Wilson, Miss G. E. Thompson; Junior Department, Miss G. L. Butler, Mrs. V. J. Brown, Miss Belma J. Jones. In 1859 the city appropriated for ihe sup port of the Massie School #4.300 09. Amount received from paying scholars, #579, to be deducted from the above. In 1860 the appropriation to Massie School, #4,385 55, less #384 55, received from pay scholars. Ia 1861 the appropriation to Massie School, #4,613 82, less #405, received from pay scholars. It appears that #560 43 was appropriated iu aid of ‘'Primary School,” an institution separate and distinct from the Masrie School. In 1563 #4,099 44 were appropriated to Massie School, less #3 .5 30, received from tuition fees; also for Primary School #747 12. In 1863 #4,395 56 for Massie School, less $339 59 for tuition. Primary School receiv ed $519 76 In 1864-5 the schools seem to have been closed by the war. The want of a j üblic echo- i -ystem with a uniformity of discipline and method hav ing lorg been felt in the community, appli cation was made in the early part if Feb ruary, l w oo, to the State Legislature for a local act incorporating a Board of Education for the city of Savan nah. Under this act Dr. R D. Arnold, John Stoddard, Solomon Cohen, Eiward C. Anderson, John C. Ferrill. John William son, John L. VillalongJ, Henry Williams, and Alexander M. Winn were appointed ou ihe part of the State, acd James B. R ad, Syivams Landrum and Bernard Maiion, were chosen under an ordinance of Council to represent, in connecrion wi:h the State Board, the interest of the city of Savannah in the Massie Common School, the three last named gentlemen being added as pity members, appointed by the Mayor, in con sideration of the city’s interest in the Massie building and of the support hitherto ap proved by the Board of Aide)men in the maintenance of that school, and the expec tation further that the municipal authori ties would coniinue to make an an nual appropriat'd), to be paid in monthly installments, in aiding the sys tem of public instruction iu Savannah, which amount, together with the special tax levied for educational purposes by the Justices of the Inferior Court, and the fund from the State or the county of Cbatham, it was thought would be sufficient to meet the estimates made for the Inception of the plan under the recent act of the General As sembly. The cost of the system was esti mated at $14,000 for the year. Every prepa ration was made to render the project a thorough one, and, under the aid looked for from the city, it was proposed to make the schools free of tuition. The contribution from the Board of Aldermen for the year 1866 was $2,265 27, paid as follows; Sala ries of teachers, $1,237 50; books and appar atus, #500; furniture, repairs and insurance, #537 77. In 1867 seven hundred and five pupils were admitted into the schools, with an av erage attendance of five hundred and fifty. Two hundred applicants were rejected on account of want of room for their accom modation. The expenses for the year amounted to #14,638, and the estimated cost of conducting the schools for the following year was #20,500. In the looked for income for ’67, the School Commissioners expected to receive four thousand dollars from the State. In this they were disappointed, and it became necessary in order to continue the schools tp llie end of the scholastic term to impose a small tuition charge upon the children. This was accordingly done during the months of April, May and June, and the sum of #2,330 realized therefrom from the pupils in attendance. There was still a deficiency at the end of the year of #1,600 to pay the salaries of teachers, and application "was made to the City Council for relief, which, under a resolution of the 10th of July, was advanced as a loan, to be refunded from the first money which should come Into the hands of the Board of Educa tion. The appropriation p-oper made by Council for tne year was #4 500. [(A mcltided tomorrow .] The Harnett House. We would refer the attention of our friends in the interior to the advertisement eltfS* where of the Harnett House, under the pro prietorship of Mestro. Harnett <& George, the firm beina Mr. M. L.

A Quarrel Between a Negro Man and His Wife Results In His Death—She Stales He Fell on n Katie and Killed Himself. Shortly after midnight Policeman Kelley encountered a colored woman at the corner of St. Julian and West Broad streets who was covered with blood and appeared to be very much excited. She was accompa nied by a small girl named Emma Walker. The woman, whose name Is Anna Williams, stated that 6he had a difficulty or quarrel with her husband. He fell upon an open knife she had in her hand, and received a wound that resulted In his death a short time afterwards. The tragedy occurred In an outhouse on Bryan street, between Lumber and Farm streets, at the rear of a house occupied by \ enus Walker, colored. From the infor mation that could be obtained, it seems that William Randolph and Anna Williams, who was living with him as his wife, got into a quarrel about midnight, the origin of which is not known, and a scuffle ensued. On a table in the room lay a large pocket knife, the blade of which was opened. Iu the scuffle Anna seized this knife and was tripped to the floor by Randolph, who fell upon her, and a rough and tumole fight occurred on the floor. In the same enaDty lived a negro woman, Louisa Lan drum, who was aroused by the noise, enter ed the room, and states that she then saw Randolph sitting on Anna Williams, endeavoring to take the knife from her. He was apparently cut in the breast near the heart, and the blood gushed over his person, and in a few minutes he tumbled over dead. Venus Walker, the woman who occupied the main house, also heard the noise, and stated, it Is said, that “she bet that woman had killed William,” but she knew nothing whatever of the occurrence. The woman Anna Williams and Louisa Landrum were arrested aud lodged at the barracks, the former on the charge of kil ling William Randolph, aud the latter as a witness, as it is believed from her inco herent statements, made at the barracks, that she knows mure about the affair than she has yet divulged. The Coroner was notified, but iu conse quence of the late hour and the difficulty of obtaining any information the inquest was postponed until to-day. Tne above comprises all the particulars In regard to the tragedy that could be as certained. The woman, Anna Williams, when brought to the barracks, appeared to be utterly unconscious of the magnitude of the crime with which she was charged. She as serted positively that Randolph fell on the knile, and that she had made no attempt to cut him. He must have bled profusely, as her clothing was literally saturated with blood. WESLEY SUNDAY SCHOOL. Pleasant Celebration of tlie Four* tceutk Anniversary. The Wesley Monumental Church was fill ed to repletion last evening, the occasion being the celebration of the fourteenth an niversary of the Sunday school. The church, and particularly the altar, was very handsomely decorated with choice flowers. The Wesley Sunday school is claimed to be the largest white Sabbath school in the city, numbering over two hundred and fifty scholars, and a corps of eight officers and thirty teachers, and the exhibition last evening was exceedingly creditable and gratifying to all interested in its future. The exercises were opened with the song, “Welcome to AU,” very happily rendered, after which prayer was offered by Rev. C. A. Full wood, of Florida, followed by the school singing, “Bless the Lord, O My 8oul.” The salutatory was delivered in effective style by Master Eddie Sauls, and was fol lowed by the reading of the scriptures by the pastor. Mr. Samuel B. Adams, the zealous Super intendent, then read his annual report of the school for the past year, which showed flattering progress and increased usefulness. A song by the infant class, which was next on the programme, was a yery pleasing feature. The infant class room is at the rear of the church, separated by glass par titions, which were 6lided apart, reveal ing the bright, happy faces of the dear lit tle innocents, standing in line. As their sweet voices gushed forth in the melody of song, the entire vast audience turned about to get a good look at them. This class is the pride and delight of the school. The recitation by Miss Bena Adams of the poem written by Mr. Barton Hill and dedi cated to a little deaf acd dumb girl followed this song, and waß exquisitely rendered, and the large audience, forgetting the proprie ties of the occasion, could not refrain from loud and long applause. The song, “We Praise Thee,” was very sweetly sung, and was followed by a charming and interesting dialogue between three little girls, representing Faith, Hope and Charity. Tnese little mites spoke with wonderful distinctness, and were heard with ease at all parts of the building. “Work to Do for Jesus” was then sung by the school, after which a collection was taken up, realizing a handsome sum, and a very interesting, brief and appropriate ad dress was delivered by the pastor, Rev. G. G. N. MacDocell. The 6ong, “He Shall Reign Forever,” was then given, after which, according to the programme, an address was to be delivered by David Porter, Esq. This orator proved to be a little bright four year old chap, son of Mr. David Porter, who acquitted him self most handsomely, and in conclusion wished the audience “good night,” nis ad dress eliciting the greatest merriment. The exercises were brought to a close with singing “To God be the Glory,” and with the benediction. The singing, under the leadership of H. H. Sassnett, Esq., was very fine.

A Grand Excursion from Jackson ville. We learn from Mr. Geo. A. Gemunden, formerly of this city, but now of Jackson ville, and who Is here on a brief visit, that a grand excursion from Jacksonville to Sa vannah is projected. It is proposed to leave Jacksonville on a Saturday night, arrive here on Sunday morning and spend the day in sight-seeing and visiting, on Monday to have some entertainment, dancing, rifle contest, and other amusements at one of the resorts around the city and return home Monday night. Such a programme could easily be arranged here as would afford the visitors Interest and pleasure, and the necessary steps will be taken to carry out this idea. The people of Jacksonville are enthusiastic in regard to the excursion, and all the arrange ments, it is hoped, will be completed in time for the trip to be made this month. It is thought that two of the military com panies of Jacksonville will come in a body, and will enter in any rifle contest that may be arranged. We trust the movement will prove successful, and can assure our Jack sonville friends of a hearty greeting and a pleasant time. No better period to visit Savannah could be selected, as the city is looking beautiful. Railroad Stocks. On Tuesday evening the market closed weak for Central common at 146% bid and 147 asked.

Bee advertisement, myl3-lt A Charming Entertainment. The fourth and last of the series of musi cal and literary entertainments by Mrs. E. S. Gustin came off in the lecture room of the Baptist Church last night before a large audience. The duets for the organ and piano in cluded an “Adagio from Beethoven,” and the ever popular “Miserere,” the latter by request. Mrs. Gustin’s faultless execu tion and exquisite expression brought out all the beauties of these masterpieces on the organ, while all her efforts were ably seconded by her fair assistants, Misses But ler and Webb on the piano. The piano solo, “The Daughter of the Regiment,” was brilliantly rendered by Mrs. Rabun, and the piano duo by Misses Proctor and Haltiwanger, and delighted the audience with its beauty and precision. Mrs. John Purse and Mrs. Berrien each gave a song, and closed the programme by a song, duo, very tender and sweet. The dialogue between Mrs. Hough, per sonating the “Widow Bedott,” and Mr. Kempton as the “Elder,” was inimitable, the audience frequently testifying to their appreciation of the fine humor so quaintly brought out by this lady and gentleman. Miss Lilienthal’s recitation was very fine, evincing great histrionic power. To the prolonged applause from the audience at the close of the recitation Miss Lllienthal very gracefully bowed her thanks. Lastly, the children were up to the mark, decided hits being made by little Carrie Dixon in her sweetsong, “Maggie May,” and the perfectly charming recitation, “A hint to Mamma,” by Ellie Morgan. The chil dren’s chorus, “I Love the Merry, Merry Sunshine,” was strong, forcible and happily given, testifying to the successful schooling of their gifted teacher. The following is the programme in full: PAST FIRST. 1. Organ and Pianc—Adagio, from Bee thoven, Jules Laboureau, Mrs. Gustin and Miss Butler. 2. Pieces by the children Recitation. “The Best of Husbands,” Miss Lee Sweat; Piano solo, “Primrose Polka,” George Frierson; Song, “The Soliloquy of a Loaf er,” Charlie Morgan. 3.

The success of the children’s carnival ball at the Exhibition Hall on Tuesday eve ning has been generally commented upon, and many have expressed the desire to see it repeated. The fancy dress inarch of the children, the dance around the May pole and other fancy dances were certainly cal culated to call forth the highest admiration, and the excellent training of such small children reflected great credit upon Professor J. B. Sherwood, their instructor. Their execution of the various difficult figures and the May pole dance without a single mistake, was unmistakable evidence of the great care and patience which must have been exerted to bring them to this high degree of perfec tion. We doubt not that the exhibition could be again given and would attract a large attendance. Think Of It, And act on it.
