The Superintendent asked leave : ?? j.:: t
i,i- annual repott to the B wrd in advance of
its presentation, w hich was granted.
Superintendent Came ."aid (hat the mat?
ter of paid Substituts teachers wa3 alrea ly
I'efore a committee <>( the Board and he
would, therefore, made no proposition, hul
would statp, as a suggestion from thrs prin?
cipal of Washington School, one to employ
subsli utes at a very small fixed salary, ??ay
jl") or $2') a mouth, an' placs them in
chsrge of encb children as were waiting f r
admission to the regular schools, while not
employed as substitute*. Ha though' con
petent persons could bo engaged at that
ptice in the t xpectation of getting regular
p ice- Bhould they prove their competency
Col. Smith moved that Miss Mattie Brew?
er be elected a teacher at a f alary of $25 per
Sup'. C.rr.e objected that tbo teacher
mentioned was, he thought, the very lowest
in the examination, and that the custom of
the Board had always been to vote on all
CjI. Smith said the Board had power to
elect any licensed person.
The Sipt. said certainly; he had only
spoken of fitness and precedent.
S vi ral trustees said they saw no occasion
fur baste in the matter, and Mr. Vincent
moved lo lay over the resolution until the
next meeting, which was lost?ayes, Me.-srs.
Vincaur, L?ad heater, Carne and Fendall?4 ;
noes. Messrs. Stuart, Smith. Sweeney,
- iiiss, Bryant, Marbury,and Mankin?7.
The chairman moved as a substitute for
the resolution, one notifying Miss Florence
L Chapman that her services would not be
required after Dec. 15th, and Gliingherplace
by the appointment of Miss Brewer. S.ipt.
Carne said she was one of the best colored i
female teachers and asked the reason for 1
desiriug her removal. The chairman re
plifd tba! the board had reserved the pow- ?
f- of removing teacher- without cause. Mr.
W F. Cutneeaid that sucn action would
injure the reputation of a teacher and be, 1
lb. r< I ?re, unjust. The substitute was then I
withdrawn and Mr. W. F. Carne moved an j
amendment appointing Miss Lizzie AI brand
h paid substitute for white schools. In an
nwerto an enquiry by Mr. Sweeney, Supt.
Carne snid that Miss A. was a graduate of
Lee school, had passed higher lor several ;
years iu succession than any other substi
tute, and had exhibited marked capacity in '<
governing schools. The chairman moved
tosubititute the uamo of Miss Ada Crump, ;
which was carried, unanimously, Mr. W. F. j
Carne, who had alone voted in the negative, I
changing his vote before the announcement, '
as he had previously promised to vote for j
her as a candidate. As she had not been
examined, tho question arose as to her
eligibility, when the Superintendent said he
would examine her if the board wished, ;
though it was not customary to examiue af
ter election. Col. Smith's motion, as
amende!, wat then adopted without divi?
sion. Mr. W. F. Carne moved to appropri?
ate $250, or as mucn thereof as may be ne?
cessary, to fit up two rooms for the new
teachers, which was carried. Ho (hen
moved to appropriate two hundred dollars,
or as much as may be uecessary,
to fit up new closets, aa the special school
must be of both sexes. Au informal debate
here arose as to whether they should be so
mixed, and in reply to a question the Super?
intendent said there was no law to prevent
it. Mr. Carne's resolution was tben rej?ct
ed and tho Chairman moved to reconsider
the resolution to appropriate money for fit?
ting up rooms.
Mr. Sweeney said if any child was cut of
school ii was the duty of tbo Biard to pro
vide for it.
Supt. Curue explained why children were
out of school and said that the same thing
happened in every city; but that if tho
substitutes wereuot required to teach, they
would be paid for doing almos: nothing, as
there were not moro than two or three days
a month lost by the whole corps of teachers
Finally the motion to reconsider was lost,
and $50 was appropriated for tho closets.
A re:-olutiou was adopted authorising tho
B 'ard to dispense with the two newly elect
id teachers whenever it was found their
services were not needed.
The Superintendent preseutod a petition
froto Charlts Brown, janitor of tbo Seator:
building, forextra compensation for work in
eideut upon the repairs in vacation, and
-aid that Brown had probably done more
work than any other janitor, yet was the
only oui- who bad not been paid for it.
Mr. Strauss moved to pay him $10.
Col. Wraith said be was sorry he could not
vote for it, but he was opposed to paying for
Mr. Lea?beater said he had always op?
posed u ; the pay should be raised if insuf?
Mr Vincent said he had also, but ss all
the re-it had been paid, if. would be unfair to
except Brown, who had done more than the
Supt. Carne said ho had, also, always
beep opposed to paying anybody oxtra and
that he would now move that hereafter no
puch pay be allowed, which motion being
unanimously adopted, aod Col. Smith hav
1(>g withdrawn his opposition, the extra pay
w'as granted Brown and tho Board ad

j j mrnment, elect a Judge of the Corporation
j Court of this city, in place of Judge N. b.
I Men e, whoss term expires on January 1,
1SSQ Tt 13 learned that a meeting of the
j bar of die city will bo held in a few dayB to
! decide upon a suitable man whose name
' will bs presented to the legislature for elec
i tion. Judge Meade will not be a-candidate.
j There are already several namts mentioned
j in connection with tho judgeship, among
I them being Messrs. L. Marbury, J. K. M.
' Norton, K. Kemper, 8. G. Brent and w. E.
Fendall. The salary of the Judge of this
Court is now ?1,400, and under the law
Judges receiving salaries of $1,000 and over,
aro not allowed to practice in the State
Courts. It is understood that the legisla?
ture will be petitioned either to reduce the
salary to $1,000, In order to allow the in?
cumbent to practice, or else to increase the
salary to $1,800 or $2,000, which sum it is
claimed the office should pay. In case a
change is made in the salary it is said that
some of the older members of the bar would
accept the position, and among those named
in such a contingency are Messrs. c. E.
Stuart, G. A. Mushbach and J. M. Johnson.
A FaSIIIONABLE colored wedding.?
The Baltimore Sun of this morning says:
Mr. Charles Caldwell, the wealthy colored
stevedore. wa< married last night to Mies

of a large crowd, among whom were many
white persons. Rev. Geo. T. Pinkney, pas?

FlOHT with iJredoers ?A spirited en?
counter took place in Fishing Bay, uear
Cambridge, Md., on Saturday night between

Commander Tyler, and three dredging ves?
sels. The dredgers are said to have been
surprised by the State sloop while working
above the prescribed line. They Bhowed
fight, however, arid shots were exchanged
with repeating rifles for a considerable time.
Capt. Tyler then brought his cannon into
