In accenting the duties of the office, and in assuming its responsibilities, I am happy in feeling assured of your earnest desire to hold up our co-ordinate branch of City Gov ernment as a model, and to further the cause of education by an earnest and active zeal in its behalf. We see from year to year the noble structure of pubbc education becoming more and more nrmly rooted in the affections of our people, and yielding in due season fruits which can be measured by no financial scale, harvests ot such abundance and great national value that the crowned heads across the waters are even now through their envoys sedulously Inquiring into the causes of the intellctual pro- fri'H of inur TXtonle. and these envovs miitrrincrlv point to the Public School as the mam spring of our prosperity. But jet, gentlemen, while we may proudly realize the truth of all this, we must bear in mind that the institution is in its infancy, and still needs teader care and judicious culture at our hands. Let us well and duly measure every step we take, and carefully avoid nasty legislation, ai wavd nnivl.A n,l ! rain n tvlrl 11 n 1 II tr t.tlA TlPAfl ed reform.

Tho Chamber then proceeded to the clectlcn of Messenger, which resulted W. S. Ruff, 17; Peter Lang, 8. Mr. Iiurf was declared elected. A motion was made to elect an office boy, which gave rise to a discussion which took a wiite range, and li.troduced a variety of political subjects not exactly approprliite to the body. An amendment to too motion suggested that the appointment of office boy be placed in the hands of the President and Secretary, which was lost. A motion to postpone the election ws made Mr. Ncbinc-er. and was loct. George E. Prentiss was elected by acclamation. The olT.cers clnct were introduced.

ThcKnoxville Whig, of December 20, says: "An important trial came off last week in tha Federal Court. John E. Gamble, ot Blount county, was arraigned and tried tor high treason strains t the United States, and after five days trial, was acquitted by a ury. He was an en rolling onicer uunng ine aays oi it e Dei ruie, and enrolled the conscripts oi his civil district. lie was also appointed agent to collect guns, and i erformed acts under that agency. "The defense was that there was no guilty intent. It was admitted that he was an enroll ing officer, and that he enrolled the conscript i of his district, but It was denied that he did so with the view of aid in e the Rebellion. On the other hand, it was insisted by his counsel, O. P. Temple, that he was a Union man, that he accepted the office by the persuasion of Union men, exercised it in such a way as to favor Union men and protect them, and that, in fact, he never seized a single gun, or put a single conscript into the Rebel army. After the exami nation of about thirty witnesses, and lengthy arguments on behalf of the Government by u. W. Hall, District Attorney of the United States, and O. P. Temple on behalf of the defendant. the iurv were chareed by Judire Trigg, and who. after retiring and consulting, returned a verdict of not guilty. This caee was novel and important, because it was tho first regular trial for treason against the United States that had ever taken place m the State, and the first that had taken place in the United States since tbe commencement ot tae late Rebellion, if not for the last forty years. It was earnestly insisted by the counsel oi defend ant that it be could be convicted, turee nunareu known Union men in East Tennessee, who had held this and similar offices dnring Rebel rule, could lilewixe be convicted of nigh treason. while the instigators and leaders of the Rebellion were sheltered and protected by amnesties and pardons. The defense was based on the broad ground of not guilty in intent, and not on techni cal points. The dclendant refused to apply for a pardon, because he insisted that he was never guilty ot any crime to do paraonen." t Younir Ketchum ! said to be looking very badly pale, eves bloodshot, limp, and re morseful. G'eneral Sheridan, having been requested by the Governor of Illinois to discharge all the Illi nois troops now in service in his department tnat coma De consistently sparea, reiurneu toe following reply: "Nothing would gratify me more than to be able to discharge all the volunteer regiments vbn have, served Krt well and tuithfullv through out the war, and I trust that Coneresa will order an increabe ot the army whlcn win at once ena ble the Government to dispense with the service of such volunteer regiments as circumstances beyond oor .control have compelled us to retain. I fully appreciate the feelings of officers and men of such of the regiments as we still retain in tho service, and I am doing all in my power to ra duoe my command consistent vith the best inte rests of the General Government. I know that you are constantly importuned by the triends of me emcers ana men still remaining in tne ser vice to secuie their discharge, and can fully ap preciate your feelings in this matter, and assure you 1 will do all 1 can to relieve you by muster ing out your troops at the earliest practicable Tiinmpnl." REDUCED PRICES. FOURTH EDITION LATEST FROM WASHINGTON. DEPARTURE OF MR. SEWARD. The New Year's Reception1 of the President. Special to The Evening; Telearrnpb. Washington. January 1. By the advice of physicians, the Secretary of State, accompanied by the Assistant Secretary, Mr. Frederick W. Seward, Mrs. F. W. Seward, and Miss Wharton, sister of Mrs. Seward, em barked on Saturday afternoon on the United States steamer De Soto, for the purpose of a trip into milder latitudes. It Is uncertain what points the party will probably stop it, possibly some in the Gulf or in the West Indies. Their voyage will occupy from ten to fifteen days. Mr. Hunter, Chief Clerk of the State Depart ment has been commissioned Acting Secretary during Mr. Seward's absence. A large crowd was present to-day at the first public reception given by President Johnson. Among the distinguished visitors were nearly all the Foreign Ministers, who were presented to the Trcsidcnt by Acting Secretary of Stato Hunter. Mrs. Patterson and Mrs. Stover, daughters of the President, assisted him in doing the honors to the guests. Colonel Johnson, the President's son, and Private Secretary, was ill and unable to be present. Piogrcaa in Turkey. The National Intelligencer publishes an extract from a letter received in this country relative to recent improvements of a commercial character in the interior of the Turkish empire: "On the 6th of November last the Macadam ized road which has been in construction tor two years between Ghemlnk on the sea of Marmora and the city of Brusa, in Asia, was formally opened for travel. Brusa is about nine hours' travel from Constantinople, five of which are by steamers to Ghemlek. In the winter season this important city, which contains a popalation of seventy thousand Mo.3SVhnen, Greek, Ameri can, Jews, and Franks lor want ot a good road to the seaport, has been almost entirely cut off from ccmmunication with the capital. It is the scat of an extensive trade in raw silk, as well as manufactured silk and woo;len goods, carpets, velveta, sallroo, turpentine, wool, wine, etc., and possesses an extensive trade with the chief towns of Northern Asia. The new road will secure an easy and more economical means of transportation of its rich and varied products, and vtill be serviceable at all seasons o the year. "A tew weeks since a railroad was completed from Smyrna to the city of Magnesia (Manisa in Turkish), about forty miles in length. This is a flourishing city of thirty-five thousand inhabi tants, about one-fourth of whom are Greeks and Ameiicans, and has largely engaged in the manu facture of cotton and silk Bluffs and goat's-hair shawls, and is on the great road between Smyrna and the most productive regions of Asia Minor. It is also one of the most ancient cities of this part of Turkey, and was a large and opulent city to tbe latest period of ihe Roman empire. It is intended to carry the road to Cassaba and Ala Cheir, two important seats of trade further in the interior. "Tbe railroad which has been in operation for more than a year from Smyrna to Ephesua, a dis tance of fifty miles, will be finished to Aidcn, some thirty miles tuither, in the coming spring. Hitherto tbe wool, silk, carpets, tobacco, etc., have been transported at such heavy rates from Smyrna as to greatly enhance their cost prices the freight of a ton of tobacco costing about a dollar between these two points. The completion of this road to Aidcn, and of that to Magnesia, will be the source of additional prosperity and commeree to the thriving city of Smyrna, "An active competition exists between Russia and Turkev to secure the transit trade from Russia to Turkey and Europe. The Russian Government, taking advantage of the utter absence of serviceable roads between Trebisond and the Persian frontier, has recently com menced, with its usual vigor, the construction of a paved road from Poti, on the Black Sea, by way of Tanris, Tiflis, etc., to the Persian fron tier, and has built a port at' Poti. A portion of this road is already in use, and has diverted such a large amount of trade from the old route between Trebisond and Erzerounl and Persia, as to oblige the Turkish Government to enter upon the construction of a ermunent and well-built road from Trebisond to the Per sian confines, about thirty-five days distant by the existing route, and wnich is next to impassa ble in winter. A corps of competent engineers and a large working force are engaged upon this road, the completion of which, some five years hence, will be ot immense Importance to lioth Turkey and Persia." , The merchants of Chicago have recently heldpublic meetings to adopt protective measures against losses in the shipment of goods through express companies. There has been a larger increase in the num ber of inmates of the Charlestown State Prison in Massachusetts during the last month than for any corresponding length of time since the prison was opened. Many of the new convicts are "garroters." The Newark (N.. J ) Advertiser says: "There ia just now a great demand for stores and factories in this city, and as a result, rents are advancing. Stores which have been rented for six hundred and seven hundred dollars are now eagerly taken at one thousand dollars, and even hicrher rates could probably be obtained if in sisted upon. There is also a great scarcity of dwellings, but we do not. hear that rents are likely to be increased. A new English book, entitled "Drafts onniy Memory: being Men I hrve Known, Things I have Seen, Places 1 have Visited:" by Lord William Pitt Lennox, is dismissed by a London literary journal with the following bit of model criticism: "The author, or compiler, for he is as much one as the other, of this dreary book was born in the last century, and has small ap preciation of the taste and requirements of the present one." The total product of the fisheries of the United States, according to the returns in the new voiume Of the eensus, was upwards of thir teen millions of dollars ($13,604,805). More than oue-balf of the amount, or $7,749,300, was the proceeds of whale fisheries, and $4,183,503 representing the value of cod, mackerel, ami htrring, etc. . A piece of gossip is afloat in Paris to the eflect that Madame de BoUsv, formerly the Countess Guiccioli, has placed in the hands of Lamartine the letters that passed between her and Byron, with notes ol her reminiscences of the author of "Childe Harold." It is said that M. de Lamartine receives forty thousand francs for the life of Byron, and that the proprietor of the Cbnsri'rwionnrt agreed to give tne writer thirty thousand francs for another work entitled "Ma Mere," which has been in their bands tor two years, but with the understanding that it should not appear till that period, at3east hud elapsed. . FINE CLOTHING. From Baltimore. - Baltimore, January 1. New Year's Day is being more generally observed here than ever before. Business of all kind, except in the news paper offices, la totally suspended, and our citi zens are engaged in making calls and exchang ing congratulations.

Jury out. MATTEES OVER THE RIVER. ' The New Year. Tbe noise and btulle incident to the observance ot the day com menced at an early hour on Sunday evening. Guns, pistols, etc., were fired off at intervals; and the clatter, wnicn increased aDout li o'clock, was kept up till daylight, much to the annoy ance of thoso who desired to sleep in quiet. Bands of hall-crown bovs. and "boys of larger1 growth," were strolling about till daylight, with horns, kettles, and other noisy instruments many ot them dressed as clowns, some of them as negroes, with painted faces, and other foolish decorations. They sought their homes drenched inside and out, and with a fair prospect of patro nizing the medical profession. To-day the snop windows make a handsome display of articles adapted to the holidays, drawiug crowds to the windows ana counters. umDrcitas ana over shoes find a ready sale in consequence. The usual church ceremonies were observed, espe cially oy the Methodist Episcopal congregations, where the "watch meetings" were kept up until the hour ot twelve announced a new-born year. ' Akotheb Night Boat. With the com mencement of the new year the Camden and Philadelptia Steam Ferry Company will start a night boat, which is to ply between Market street, Philadelphia, and their new ferry depot, in Camden. This will be a great convenience to Middle and South Camden especially. Tbe want of an additional night boat has long been felt, and we are glad to find Caotain Fia.ee so prompt in conlormlng to the wishes of the peo ple. CITY INTELLIGENCE A Bold Bukqlabt. Some time durhlg this morning a daring burglary was committed at Ninth- and Chesnut streets, at the saloon known as pelmonico's, of which Robert Fox, the manager oi the New American Theatre, is tho proprietor. The bartenders having it in charge closed at 11 o'clock last night, and went home. The mode of entrance adopted was ingenious and skilful. The windows on Ninth street are enclosed with blinds up to the middle of the win dow, the upper part being simply stained glass. The thieves cut ith a diamond a pane of glass in this portion of the window large enough to admit a man'B hand, ana by slipping a bolt succeeded in lowering the upper section. The door was then forced open flora the inside and the con federates admitted. Fortunately there was only some $10 or $15 in the till, which was all m postal currency. This the thieves appropriated, toge ther with about $150 worth ot fine brandy in bottles, and a liberal 'supply of cigars and tobacco. The noise and "iconfunon incident to the incoming year rendered the act of robbery one of small difficulty, but it indicates tbe bold ness ot the knaves, that on our most public street, and within call of tho two principal hotels ot the city, so bold a burglary could be committed. The block bounded by Eighth and Ninth, Chesnnt and Walnut, has become the stamping ground of thieves and scoundrels, and we trust our new Mayor will pay particular at tention to the dens of infamy with which that locality abounds. The closing of a few of the groggeries in that vicinity would add very much to the profit of those resident there. New i Feeht Faciijties The New Steamer "Camden." Tho Camden and Philadel phia Steam Ferry Boat Company have lust com pleted another handsome and capacious steam ferry boat, which has been christened the Cany den. She is a consort of the Delxusare, and is built irom the same model, but is ten feet longer. The hull was t constructed by Taylor & Mathias, of Camden; keel, 1U0 feet; length on deck: 142 feet; breadth of beam, 2'. feet; extreme width over decks, 49 feet; depth of hold, 9 feet. She has superior engines made by Neatie & Levy, ot Philadelphia; ber cylinder measures 32 inches, with 9 feet stroke. The joiner work was done by Thomas Jones, of Camden; and the painting by James H. Denny, of Camden. The Camden. made her trial trip on last Saturday afternoon, having on board Messrs. Gatzmer, McKnight, and Mark ley, Directors of the Company, with a large number cf invited quests. The trial was eminently successful. Alter partaking of re freshments, speeches were made by several gen tlemen amonc the most interesting of which was that of William H. Catziuer, Esq., who gave a history of the Delaware ferriage systems for the past thirty years. The Company have erected new slips; have two first-class boats on the line; have arranged for running a night boat during the new year, etc. They deserve great credit for their endeavors to accommodate the publlo with cheap aad comfortable ferriage, and will doubt less receive a proper amount of patronage.
