OFFIWIAL J.I.OLNAL. -or TIHE STATE OF IO,()ITSITANA. --- s. t ntelligtnge. unarterly Beport of the Grand Jury, and Protest from Judge Abell Aainst the Re port of General Balrd. The Grand Inquest of the parish, at the close of its term yesterday, pretented the subjoined report to the First District Court, Judge Abell presiding, and were then discharged. It has been the lot of the citizens composing this Grand Jury to be called upon to perform inquisitorial duties, during a period of high political excitement and great public agitation, resulting in bloodshed, unparal. leledta extent in any local disturbance in the history of the country, and inducing the most atrocious calumnies against 'he people and the authorities, State and city. The investigations of the Jury were conducted under these cireum stances with a calmness, fidelity and intelligence .worthy of the highest commendation; and upon ordering the discharge of the panel, Judge Abell, in behalf of the city and State, and in behalf of the court, thanked them warmly and in fitting terms for the exemplary manner in which they had dis charged their highly responsible duties. The Jury was composed of the following gentle men: Francis Rawle, foreman; B. P. Voorhies, A. Prados, Jr., J. N. Philips, Philip Powers, J. G. Vienue, Chas. W. Hopkins, J. it. Couway, Joachim Viosca, Sr., Charles Aroyo, Victor David, V. J. For.tall, Henry Aubert, I. B. Florcs, L.. Char bonnet, S. It. Frost. NEw OnLEANa, Oct. 3, 1866. u ltto,. E. Ae1ll, Judge of the First District Court, Parish of Or anos: The (irand Jury of the parish beg leave to sub mit this as their final report: During our term of servree we have visited varioas public institutions In our report of Au gust 10, 18.c;, we made mention of an inspecting tour to the Insane Asylum, Parish Prison, City Workhouse and Boys' House of Refuge. A second visit to thloe named institutions is made a part of this report. The Parish Prison, in charge of Capt. Robert Swaine, contained two hundred and forty-five prisoners, of whom one hundred and forty-three were white men, eleven white womien, seventy four co!ored men, and seventeen colored women. Theres were fourteen sick persoso (one withl cholera) and three ltuatics. .lIost df ttest p. atients have been but lately admitted into the prison. The hospital is much in need of bed steads, mattresses and bed clothing. This subject has before been reported upon by this, as well as the ftrler, grandi jury, and we coneider that by this time tile city authoriti- s should have supplied the necessary ce,mforts for tie sick of the prison. The :condiltion of the prison isnorderly and cleanly, but relpirs are needed, especially to the flooring of the lower hell and to that of the officers' kitchen. Tieh Tr.:m, post, or Secrnd D)istrict lokupp in cboage eol Sergeanit LegIlrre. wics in a eliedition very creditable to Mr. Le lere. Some white woiagig and paint ng ieeded, and a fireplace should le repaired. Tie old poiice jail is at present occupiedl by the milltary. and we, thlerefrc, could ntot visit it. We would urge upon the city nulhorlties to use every ffort to regain possessleo of ther same. Tie hlaIe for IDestitute Singlre Wtoten and Widows, with their children, and the Home for Oldaned lelirm blen, are siteaeted near one anotler, on Labarpe street. They are both under the direction of the Ladies of Providence. The society has lmade such repairs as were in their power, but other and more extended improve ments are needed. In the two homes tiere were about one hundred persons. A great many appli cations for admittance hlave to be relesed, on account of thle want of room. \VWe weold recom mend that the teociety be supplied with is spriog wagon for tie purpose of sending to market and for-going alter any contributions that Omight be made. Inl wet weather the hionles are not easy of access, as the streets are unpaved, and there are no connectileg banq1uettes towardsothe city proper. We would recommend that banquettes be nmde from Laharpe to Esplanade streets, at least upon Jolnson street, as upon that street bath the homes could be ienefitted, tlhe Old Men's Hotle being immediately on the corner of Johnston street. The Insane Avylum is in charge of Capt. Justin Fremanx. Tiere were eighty-two inmates, of whom twenty eight was white me, twenety-eight wr iteo omen, eight colored n tn and eighteen colored women. This ansylum should be, and was intended to he hot a temporary depot for persons supposed to be insane. Abeont every tirty days, those persons who are decided inor by the medi cal attendants as being insane, should be sent to the State Asylum, at Jacksonn Twenty eight insane persons sent, on tiee lst August, 18(6, from this asylsm to thee one ie Jackeon, La., were brought back, the officers of tile asylum at Jackson, reporting that they were unable to ac commodate any more persons that they now have. We request thle State authorities to takie this emat ter into .conseideration, and would recommteend that more extensive accommodations be offered is theb asylum at Jackson. In the city asylum, some measures should be at once taken to enlarge the yard and building wherein are confined the negro wolen, erspcially, as we are ilefurneed that the naumber of colored inmate is increasing. Tihe main part of the asylum woul he snufficiently large, if from time toe time, some of tile tnsane sould be sent to ,lJakson: but nerss tihe Jackson asylum can afford this relief, Capt. Fremaux will be obliged to retuse admittance to any more per saons, his asylum being, at present, quite crowded. At the St. Mary's bsylumn for Orphan Boys, under charge of the Coemmanity of tile eoly Cross, we footd nearly five hundred inmates, all in healtlly condition. Of tile five classrooms, some need repairs, The boys are much in need of shoes and clothing. In the Asylum. of ile Immaculate Conception and elotlng. .th In the Asylum. of the Immaculate Conception cc there were about seveuty-five orphan girls, most io of them from eight to twelve years of age. No en sickness amongst them. Formerly, the girls ad- bt mitted into this asylum, were those who were to tc bce taught one trade, or profession, but now a a great many young girls hare to be taken, merely w to give them a home. The asylum requires many tb repaire to the floors and roofs, and there should be some painting and white-washing done. The in girls are much in want of shoes and clothing. We hi would recommend that the wooden bedsteads be w exchanged for iron ones, the latten- being more cc easily kept clean and less liable to insaect. ii, The Convent of the Good Shepherisnat present ac under the direction of Sister Mary of St. Ambrose, gc the Sister Superior having died of cholera not long since. There are seventeen Sisters having in rt charge the eighty-four inmates of the convent. o0 The women sew, embroider, do washing and iron- In lag, etc., for our citizens, and from their work rc name revenue is derived for the' convent. The roperty cost $25,000, of which amount about i. 800L0 are stilldue. We were informed that no ti appropriation has been made by the State, and n we would therefore recommend that one be al- b lowed, so as to assist this praiseworthy iustitutien n inits undertakings. A supply of clothing, blankei eta, etc,, is very much needed. There are butfew wooden ones should be exchanged for iron ones. o The grounds about the convent are extensive, but fe require filling up. In cconsequence of there being c no water pipes laid in the vicinity of this institua. tion, great economy in the exercise of the cistern c nwater ihas to be exercised. In thie cao- of a long continued drought they have had to send into tile I city to get water frome the hydrants. 'lie premises d would ihave to be better sunlclied ceitli water than tl they are now to permit baths at all times. We o recbmmend that ca fea meree ci.terns Ie furoishied. e At the ChaL~cty Hospital we were received by the assistant house surgeon, IDr .Jules Foet, the hotse surgeon, Dr. A.lW.Sccyth, being at tihe time absent frol tile city.

No. 94 OAMP SREET. TERMS-DAILY, .16: WE 1 ELYI PER YE aP. Ta VOLUME XVI. THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4, 1866. NUMBER 44. h The estahlishment i ao mio. , . . o .nn . a . .nl n ,ln . ,r . A .... .- - hay The establishment is admirably managed, and is kept in a neat and orderly condition. In the city Workhouse there were three hun dred and thirty-one prisoners, nnder charge of Capt. P. c I. Andress. Blankets and bedding Smsuch needed. If supplied with ticking and mosss, the prisoners could mnake their own mattresses, and we would request the eity authorities to at once supply Capt. Andress with those materials. The flooring of the cells require renewing, the cels being insecure in their present condition. SUpon mentioning to Capt. Andress the complaint made in relation to the sick of his establishment being sent to the Charity Hospital, he Informd us that they are sent by order of the city physician, t because persons who are very sick cannot be properly attended to in the Workhouse, In conse irquence of there not being suitable hospital ac commodations. Mr. Jules f tokey is the apothe cary of the house, and is represented to be fully competent for the position. He is kept well sup plied withdrugs and medicines. We recommend that a hospital be built upon the premises, so that the sick will not have to be sent out. We con sider it inhuman to be removing persons after they get into the conditions they have sometimes been when sent from the Workhouse to the Charity Hospital. The Boys House of Refugee, under charge of Major Win. Bosworth, contains one hundred and six inmates. There have been a few cases of cholera, but the boys are now very healthy. The premises are kept in a clean condition. One of the buildings is in good order, but those oceupied for work shops are unfit for use, and need much repairing, if not rebuilding. We sak for a dona tion of school books for toe refuge. We noticed a decided improvement in the quality of the bread made at this institution. Two additional cisterns should at once he given to guarantee a sufficient supply of water. The Now Orleans Female Orphan Asylum, in charge of Sister Mary Margaret, contains about two hundred girls. There are besides over eighty at a branch ofel thisasylum at Carrollton. The girls are in very healthy condition. We would recom mend that a canvass awniog he placed around the inner yard so as to protect tie girls from the sun while walking or playing about, and that a new zinc covered lioor be furnished the kitchen. At least one-third more room, is needed it this asylum, some of the girls hav4g, at present, to sleep upon the floor. We would urge upon the oity council to donate to this institution tlhe very soall portion of Clio -treet, which runs be tween the asylum and the triangular lot in front, which is the property of the asylus. This portion of Clio street being at its terminus, we do not con sider that the donation of it would be anything detrimental to the public interest, whereas it svii be a great benefitto the asylum, as it would ier mit the connecting of the asylum with their lot opposite. At the Girl's House of Refuge, there were thlirty-three inmates, l rs. Stokes is the matron, and Miss Gallagher the'teachter. Some repairs are being made, but the building is old, worn out and unfit for the purpose for which it is usted. We re commsend that the property be sold and iatl an otier house le built in the suburbs of the city. The St. Vincent Infant Asylum. under charge of Sister Mary Agnes, contains onte hundrel and aine children, all healthy. The asylum is, as yet, in an unfinislhed condition, and we would call upon the charlitably disposed of our citizens to contribute to tie fundsi a of the institution, no as to asistin completing tlle building. The yard seeds filling up wsith ealth. The St. Elizabheth Female Orphan Asyium., of which Sister Angelica is in charge, is one of the most extetnsive asylums, and we consider it most admnirably masnaged. There were one hundred and fifty-five children in the establishment. Wre were shown some beautiful specimens of needle work, emhroidery, artificial flowers, etc.. made by the girls, and some washing and ironing of dine linens done byjlthem. The St, Anna's Asylum, of which Mrs. Moore ie the matron, contains about fity inmates, most of whom are helpless old womlen, the balance being childreu. We regret its present condition, as re garde neatness, order and the general manage ument, which does not compare favorably with the Catiholic institutions under charge of the Sisters of Charity. To assist it in carrying out the benevor lent object for which it was intended-a refuge for indigent women-the grand jury feels that it cannot be too urgent iu alppealing to private as well as to public charity in its behalf. the Jewish Widows' and Orphans' Home.under charge of Miss Noel, contains forty-seven inmates, all of whom are children, and they are ver healthy. The management seenms to be very goo, but there is room for improvements as respects order and neatness. With regard to all of the many charitable insti tutions of the city, we ask that every assistauce be giveu them, both by public and by individual contributions. We would be pleased to have fee quent visits paid them by our citizens generally, as well as by the State and city authorities, so that every one could form an idea of the vast amount of assistance and protection affolrded, and of the magnitude of the necessary requirements. These visits would show that an interest is taken by tihe community in the success of tihe institutions, and would naturally encourage those persona ithaving the management of them. Much assistance could be rendered them by our citiizens employing them to do such work as can be done in the differcent establishmonts, The ruins of the Toouro Almshouse remind us of the great need of such anoasylumu, and seem to call upon the city and State to come forward to rebuild the edifice, and carry out the designs of the generous donor. It has come to the knowledge of the granid jury that our city 1council has had under consideration the subject matter of selling the different proper ties upon which stand some of our prisons, lock ups, etc., and of erecting more substantial buitd lugs in the suburbs-of the city. Moany of the buildings are old and dilapidated, and wholly inadequate for the purpose for which they are used, and some of them are scarcely sus ceptible of being altered to meet the modern isu provemunts without an expenditure equal to the coot of new buildings. The sale of the grounds, by reason of their valuation, consequent upon their present locations, would probably yield an amount sufficient to ereetbuildings in the suburbs, which, in architecture, would vie with those for the same purpose in other cities. We would recommend to tihe legislature to take into consideration the propriety of licensing gum bling houses. The laws forbidding gamboling within the State have never been thoroughly exe. cuted and are easily evaded. Lottery denalers are licensed, and a lottery is bat a game of chance, and a naeunn nn¢rtirlet invr in a Int.ta- a..nt·, lh, anaa a person participating in a lottery is actually gambling. Our laws at present permit betting upon horse racing which is but a species of gambling, often of a most extensive kind. Many of our citizens believe that the issuing of licenses to gamblers, requiring a gamubling house to be open to the in spection of the police authorities and of the pub lic, would not be as injurious to the community as the manner with which the practice of gambling is now earriedon. Avery considerable revenue could be derived from this class of our inhabitants, who now contribute nothing to the public coffers, and yet are daily practicing their "profession." We regret to see that the practice of carrying concealed weapons has increased very much in our midst. We hope that our people will soon not feel the necessity (as it is understood by many) of carrying weapons for self protection, and we would urge upon the police to use every effort to carry out the provisions of tlhe tlaw. We deeply lament the occurrence of the acts of lawlessness and violence which have taken place during our term, and we reiterate it as our ouinion that a set of onprincipled political trickstterso some Sof whom attempted to overthrow the State gov ernment, have been the authors of all the trouble. We have noticed a protest made this day by you, which protest we find upon lile as a part of the records of this court. We unanlilou-ly all prove of the propriety and joOtnesc of saidl prl test as being a trdttlli refutation of the report o. Matjor General Baird. PROTEST OF JUDGE AlBElILL. Subjoined is the protest placed on file by Jluge Abell against the relort of Major General Baird : In viudicatiol of the inteerlity of this court, 1. and the tpeopl of the city of h w Orleans and State of l.ouiiao I enlter this, lly prott, Sgainst the coerrectess of tile rtleot Inhde by ilGeneral Baird, in Auulst, 1sl6, rclativo to the hriot o e the 30th day o)f July. 10(61. d The general says : " Colonel-T leave the p honor to sulmit for the ioformlation of tile ilajn;r c general cunnilauding, the following reportL cou ir cefling tihe 30th ult.: a 'It was a matter of public notoriety tlatt the ieconvention of 1864 was to meet here oi that in date. i "Somee weekis previously it had been in .ension r- and had continued its meetings during several Ic days." Td his is not correct, because the convuention of ,i 1864 chased to exist upon the ratification of the is Constitution by the peopte on the first Monday in e. September, 1864. The meeting referred to by the is general was only a caucus of a few of the mem hers of the late convention and their radical i-friends, and no more. if Secondly-The general says: " On Friday g night, July 272lj a meeting of radical persons was hd at the echanics' Institute. All of the speeches, except those of Dr. Dostie, are said to it have been temperate. The words put In his 3, month were violent and indiscreet." Not correct, because the words were not put i into but came out of the month of Dr. Dotaie and it others, addressed to a large concourse of negroes, it such words as-"C6me to the convention on Mon s day next; come armed and if any white son of a Sh- molests you, kill him. You are as white as ethey are," etc., etc. Third-The general further says: "In the same category with the speeches attributed to Dr. Dos tie must be placed the charges of Judge Abell to y the grand jury of the parish, in relation to the rconvention." d Not correct. because Dostie asked the colored it people to come armed to defend the convention, and I charged against the advertised meeting and r file herewith copies of the charges, duly certified is to show that the assertion of the general is un e founded. Fourthly--The language of the general towards if this court is gross, prejudiced and made without a d single fact for a basis. f Fifthly-cBecause the general officially calls "e Judge Howell president," when the journal and f debates of the said convention of 1864, show that d he never was such. h Sixthly--Because after inserting the President's Stelegram, which is as follows: d" WasnHi..ON, July 2% 1866. S"Aibsert'Voorells, Lieurtenant iorernor Loulisiana: i '"The military authorities will be expected to iustain and not obstruct or interfere with the pro ceedirgs of the courts. A dispatch on the sub ject of the convention was sent to Governor Wt ells this morning. (Signed) y " ANDREW JOHNSON." The general says: " The authority of the dis patch 1 saw no reason to doubt, but it was ambi d guous as to the wishes of the government, in rle e tion to the convention." Ua nfortunate, because had the general under stood the dispatch and acted upon it, in good afaith, there would have been no meeting of the o so-called convention, no riot, and consequently no humain blood shed. Seventhly-The general also says, in the same paragraph: "Judge Abell, of one ef the State courts, had but recently, in a charge to tihe grand jury of his parish. denounced the convention of 1864 as onlawful." Not correct, because there is not a-word in the charges referred to against the convention of t864. as the charges which are made part of this protest will show. The charges, spehaking for thermselves, are an earnest charge cto tie grand jury against thie eonstitntionaliiy and loyalty of the adlecrtised meetinog of the 30th July, 1866, and a faitllhful wvarning against the danger of such an Sassenmblage to the public peace. Eighthlly--The general says (same paragrnph) : "Tihe question tlhen arose as between Judge Abeli dand Judge Shannon, which was the military au thority to recognize as the court intended by the e President." Not coerectr. because there is no such judge as lShannon. and I sad no controversy with Comimis esinner Shannon or any one else on thle sbject. aThe Hon. E. H. Durell is thie only United States I judge in this district, and I object'to the general's oficially makiing judges of commissioners, or Ipresidernt of a State convention out of an ex e member. t The officially dignifying, tby the general,:a cau cuse into a peaceably sitting convention the long conversations subject to dispute: the defending of Dostie against the incendiary language used by Shim : the assertions against the court without giv ing a single fact on which they are based ; the dignifying of Judge Howell into a president of a State convention, when journals and debates f show tlat he never was such : tlle assertion that I Scharged the grand jury against the legality of the convention of 1h64, when the charges here filed show the very reverse : the general's failure to understand thle plain words of :he telegram of the Presideit : the imaginary contest between "Judge Shannon" and Judge Abell, when the records of the contrr will show there is no such "Judge t Shannon"--leare no other conclusion than that the general was blinded by prejudice and swayed by passion. 'r This is a review of about one-half of the gene rals relport of six columns, which appears to be a special plea in behalf of an attempted usurpation, and for the geaeral's own neglect in failing to aid ' the civil authorities in preventing the meeting of the 30th July, 1856, and the riot of that day. It contradicts nearly all the records and con ceded facts of the times, and appears to be, in the ilaniguageof tie great Webster, " a report not fit to be nade." to Proceedings of the Pollee Board. t The board met pursuant to adjournment.

The regular monthly meeting of this board was held last evening, Mr. Bermudez presiding, iit place of Mr. aount, alset on leave. On motion of Mr. Shields, the members of the conmittee on education of the Common Council were invited to seats within the bar. whenever they may think proper to attend the sittings of the board. Mr. Parhsm, from the committee on teachers, presented the annexed report: Your committee on teachers beg leave to re port: The schools opened on the 17th nult., as per resolution of your honorable body adopted on the i0th of August. The teachers elected for the present year are all at their posts with the excep tion of Miss Brugniens in the Madison School, who has not yet returned, doubtless detained by good cause. Ont the Saturday preceding the opening of the schools, your committee received letters from Miss Falconer. principal of the bldison School, and Mrs. Miller, principal of Live DOak School, girls' department, resigning their respective post tions, having made other arrangements. Your committee, after consultation with the superin. Itendent, placed Mrs. McDonald, first assistant of Madison School, in the principalship vacated by the resiguation of Miss Faleoner and promoted to I Mrs. McL).'s position, Miss Louise Wagner, of the De Soto's girls' school, filling MiussWagner'splace by the appointment of Miss Polymenia Petard. SIn the principalship of the Live Oak girls' school, a your committee placed Mrs. Eagan, acting first assistant of the Mcglonogh school, promoting to Mers. Eagan's place Miss Auvray. of the Laurel school, and to Miss Auvray's place, Miss Weitz of - the Magnolia school, and appointed to Miss Weitz's position. Miss Blunt, one of the supernumeraries. t These ladies are all doing well as ascertained by personal observation, and by report of the super. intendent. Your committee, therefore, respect fully recommend that their action be approved, and that these ladies be declared elected to the respective positions as assigned by the committee. One position in the Laurel School, sixth assist anut, was not filled at the general .election, tie superintendent deeming that it would not be necessary to do so betore the present meeting. The very large number of admissions, howevver, rendering it imperatively necessary, your cam mitter appointed to the place Miss C. IReed, an old and experienced teacher, and that divisiun was opened on the 2tulnit. Misso Roe is giving entire satisfaction, and your comeittee recort metd the appointment of Miss Reed as sixth assistant, Lanurel Sclol, be confirmed. Your committee have devoted considerable time and attention to visiting tie schools in every part of the city, and are much pleased witll the man agement of the schools generally. The new ap pointees in the corps of teachers are mostly per forming their duties in a satisfactory manuer. Thle number of pupils is naprecedentedly large, particularly in the primary divisions, many of vwhich are so crowded as really to endanger the health of the teachers and pupils and to render it utterly impossible for the teachers to do anytlhing in the way of teaching. About forty divisions hGave each between seventy-five and one hundred children cramnmed into a space not large enough for half that number. One division in ilthe Frank lin school has 13 children in one room. One roome at the Chalniette School has the samone num ber, thirty of whom have to be seated on the dfloor. One or two divisions of the DeSoto School are in a condition just as bad. The primary divi sions of thle tagnuolia have over 1300 attendnets. Now, it is necessary for your committee to dwell upon this subject. The facts speak louder than words. We must appealto tihe cnuncil for prompt aid. We need, if it is possible to find Srooms for them to occupy, at least twelve to fif. teen teachers more now immediately. Yourcom mittee, therefore, recommend that the president of this board be requestedto lay the matter before the council at once and ask for relief. Two cases, at least, do not admit of any delay- two more teachers must be provided for the Franklia school, and two for thie Chalmette school. Your committee, therefore, recommend that the chairman of the committee on school houses be authorized and instructed to procure tihe neccesary yrooms, nand that the committee on teachers be authorized to appoint the four teachers required, tlhat these divisions may be opened without delay. Tiee superintendent's report will give you more detailed information on tlese points. Your committee have, in compliatce with rule t10, chapter 2, page 8, defining their duties, ap pointed 32 supernumeraries, two, and to some of the larger schools three to each of tIre sclhools. S Thcy have beet guided in the selections they d have made by the principle laid dlown by them in a Sformer reert. Respectfolly sulnlited. JtO. re. PARteuAo, Chairmau, t F.0T.ti (1R AN. (eeo.

Mr. Leefe, from the flniuee comnmittee, ant Mr. Brewer, of the toiaittee on library, sulmit ted reportswbich were adopted, The committle a on library reported that many books. not ex i- pected, had been returned, and advocated an in e crease of books and some modifications of the a present ibrary regalationa. Resolutions to carry e out the proposed changes were passed. Mr. Bermadez, from the committee on normal e school, submitted a report suggesteng a postpone e ment of such school ountil the financee of tbhe city e will justify it. The repoot woa accepted. o Mr. Parham, from the committee to which was referred a resolution providing for instruction in p the French language in the public schools, pr. Sseted an elaborate report o the aubjectt recom mending that the French be taught in all the grammar and high schools of the city. Mr. Kelly, of the committee, offered a minority 5 report, ar.utag that the introductionof the study of French-would serionsly inteiofere with pteseat Studies, andtogive that langusg ea preferBence a a foreign tonguewas ainrldios distinction in re Sgard to other foreign lang ages. A lengthy debate was had in relation tt the Imatter, during which it was elicited that the iten. lion of the majority was not to pant the new lan into immediate operation, but that Uae smy 01 French would not be introduced until the preseun intermediateclases were promoted to the high b echols, wich would take place next year, when, Swiththe promotions from the primary to the.ioter mediate departments, and the formation of nce classes, the proposed change would be made. - fAn ieffecttua attempt was made to postpone the solbject, to the next meeting, after which a resolution embodying the recommendation of the majority of the committee whs passed. Mr. Kelly asked what had been accompliahed by the passage of the resolution? Several members replied that, at the proper time, steps would be taken by an increase o. teachera, to completethe meansure. Ir. Rigers, the superintendent, made his monthly report. The number of pupils attenring the schools during thecmonth of September was 10.06 , which was greatlyin excesg of any pre vions attenedanc. More teachers are needed, and the school rooms are so crowded that the health of children and teachers is endangered. Branch schoole, IMr. Rogers says, are necessary to accom modate the-great increase of scholars. He esti Imates that two thousand children, entitled to the benefits of the school system, are prevented from attending, by reason of the insufficiency of room in the schools. The system of compelling pupils inr he high schools to purchase their text books, She suggested should be abolished, as a systemn calculated to cause offensive distinctions betwe.r the affluent and struggling. The anreliability of the clocks in the schools, he observed, was a eause of much irregularity ith both teachers and pupils. To prevent un abuse of corporeal prnishment, he recommended that teachers be required to make periodical statements in relation to such punish mients inflicted by them, reporting the particularo of each case. Thereport wasN accepted. IMr. Leefe introduced a resolution for the ap ' pointment of a caommittee of four to conmmunicte with the Common Council, on the subject of the in sufficiency of school room. Adopted. The superintendent was authorzed to purchase benches sufficient to supply the deficiencies in the schools. Roaster Richard Nugent, expelled from one of the schools in the Third District, in lMarch last, for a breach of discipline, was ordered to be rein stated upon apromise of amended behavior. Mr. Thienemen introduced a resolution to allow children from the right bank and from the parisise of Plaquoemies and St. Bernard, to attend the schools of the city, upon the parents making arrangements to pay such pro rata for instruction as may be determined by the finance committee. lRelereed to a special committee of one fromeach district. The superintendent was anuthorized to have an reliable clocks in the schools sold at auction and to purchase in their stead good timhe keepers. A resolution introduced by Mr. Brewer, passed, Sproviding that the popils in the schools of every grade shall be gratuitonusly furnished with all books and stationery necessary for their in -structions. A memorial was presented by Mr. Cronan fron twenty-five teachers, repreoenting the teachers o0 f all the schools, asking an increase of compensa y tion. They urge that nwhile their salaries are the csame as they were five years ago, the cost of liv Sing has been greatly enhanced since then, ano while the pay of all claasses of public servants has been enlarged, theirs has been left at the old rate and it is insufficient to support them with thi st docency and dignity becoming their station. The. Sdo not memorialize for a specific increase, leavinl al it to the wisdom and sense of jostice of the boar ,f to determine the amount. The petition was ap s propriately referred. An applicatisn from the officers of the Ladies Benevolent Society of Louisiana, for the use of th rLyceum Hall, on Mondaynext, fora generalmee1 ing of the association, was granted. Mr. Culbertson made a verbal retquest for th use of the MIoCarthy school house tfor a meetini of the Benevolent Sons ol Lonisiana, and, on hi motion, the application was referred to the cow mittee on school honuses. On motion of Mr. Stickney, a resolution passed requesting the city surveyor to examine the wall standing open the ruins of the Tonro Alms House which are reported to be in danger of falling, anu are in the immediate neighborhood of the Wash ington school house. Some other b.nsiness. of no sublic interest. hay ing been transacted, the board adjourned. Bensatlon Salt In she Third Distrlct. e An interesting examination was held yesterday rt in the Third District Court, in which the accused a- party, Sevarin Vigne, was charged with the same P offense that cost Tarquin his kingdom and which furnished Shakspeare with the theme for one of e, his youthful poems. Lest the reader should not of have read recently Shakspeare, or should be 1 badly posted up about Tarquin, we had, perhaps, better add that the suit involved the honor of a is colored demoiselle of the Third District, and is d one which is visited by the law with the severest - penalties. 'e The plaintiff in this case is a certain MIle. Marie a- Simoen, who lives on the Pandelly canal, in the 5e lower part of the city, near the U. S. Barracks. 0 She appeared in court dressed in black. Her looks were downcast, and her air and manner con to veyed the idea that the management of her case Cr was well attended to by an affectionate but some what noisy mother, who appeared, nextto herself, . as the principal witness. n- So far as we could gather from the facts, Marie it appears to have attended the wife of Sevarin Ce Vigne during her last illness, and it was there that _ she made the acquaintance thatresulted in her de oe plorable misfortune-a misfortune that seemed to tl be conceded by all parties. Mr. Vigne, conscious se of the approaching end of his past helpmate, ry providently commenced making advances for e some one to supply her place. But the accu d, sation of Marie Sevarin charges that his r wooing was of the most vio ent character; that he frightened away her mother from her house, le and perhaps would have frightened away her 1f brother too, who was in the same apartment, but o hat he happened to be at the time asleep. Her y mother ran for help to the next house, but staid as too long; her brother slept too soundly. The conduct of Vigne, meanwhile, was such as to induce her at the time to remain silent and war rant the bringing of the present suit. hy Tie plausibility of the charge will be best seen by the result of the iUvestigatincis of Recorder he Letten, who sent Vigne before tile First District of Court, charged with a simple assault and battery, nc. and under hond to appear and not to repeat the Ie offense for t500. tO During the examination an old negress, with a se turban which suggested the tiara of Cybele, and II. who was very black, and very honest, was sub ject to a fierce examination. It was to her house the mother of the injured innocent went, and er something like the following questions were asked nt her, to which she gave an unhesitating no : "Come now, old woman, did you hear any noise that a night? No screams ? See nobody enter the bd house, etc., etc." All of these she neither saw cd nor heard. " But how did in happen that you ser knew nothing of what was going on when you live cul the next door?" Her reply was that witness was ion that night in another part of town. She had ur- been relevant in her evidence, and explained ts. nothing until it was asked her. ,nd Acldent.

The loe te of important records, in this manner, whic n- has lately happened, must admonish custodians r such papers, of the impropriety and danger of th Be practice. Judge Abell, of the criminal court, i the firstto direct a reform in this respect. He ha of ordered that no documents be taken from th or clerk's.office, unless by legal authority, and othe Spublic functionaries may find it to their interestt w follow his example, for theloss or mutilation of es public record may prove ayery serious matter. g Beorders' u6wrts. e FIRST DISTRICT.-The charge against N.
