(COMMUNICATED. 7H? PUBLIC SCHOOLS One of the city newspapers, in its la*t issue, after quoting from the memorial recently presented to Congress by the Board of Trustees of Public Schools, in dulged in a strain of exaggerated remarks which, without explanation, may do in jury to the cause they were doubtless in tended to benefit. The simple truth ij mighty, and all that the friends of the Public School system desire is that it should Ve fairly represented: that what it has done, and what it has failed to ac complish may be fully understood. Ti.e writer of the article says, "almost ever, application for improvement vitally ne cessary for the prosperous continuanceof the nucleus of a system which we have at present, is met with the objection, ?wait till Congress doeo something fcr us.'" In point of fact, (or many years iesr:y every application, with the single excei - lion which wil! be noticed beiov. that has 4>een in ade by the Trustees to U c City Councils for appropriations fit school purposes has been grants. The past and present Councils ha'. : manifested x most praiseworthy libera - lty in co-operating with the Trus-ees in the improvement of the Public School*. Every request that has been b? ? hern, which was accompanied by an es timate, lor the establishment of ne* schools, for more teachers, for increase in rheir compensation, for new furnituri. ar.d to pay higher rents for better scb.x I rooms, lias been granted, and it is be lieved the estimates of the Trustees have been always passed without reduction. Within twelve years the annual ap propriation for schools has ii-en from about $1,700 to more than $17.(K>0?an increase of more than one thousand pir cent. Wc challenge any city. North or South, to show, within the same time, a greater per. centage of increase in its ap propriations for Public Schoois. % The memorial states that 4-in 1842 the expenditure by the Corporation foi school purposes was j 1,755. There vrert at that time but two schools, two teach ers, and about two hundred pupils. Tlit expendi * ures for the year J 853-'4 amount ing to $17,63?J: theie are now twenty four schools, thirty-seven teachers, and about twenty-two hundred pupils." ' This statement, which will not be de nied, shows conclusively that we have not been, as stated by the writer, " vain ly depending upon Congress without our making an etfort cither io build school hous'jj, provide first iate teachers, or, ri short, do any thing more than move along with the current of events.'' With in a lew years we have built two new school houses, and la>t year purchased one school-house and added a second story to another. In regard to the statement that "hun dreds of children are crammed into school rooms that should not contain fifties, ' it is answered by the fact that not, one of the public schools numbers more than a hundred and forty pupils, while the usual number is seventy, and thoaveiage attendance does not exceed fifty, which is the proper number for one teacher. It is true that Congress was memorial ized at its last session ou the subject of gtaniing aid to the schooli. The trustee would have been derelict to their duty, if, after the manifest interest exhibited by the President and the Secretary ol the Interior lor the advancement of the pub lie school system cf Washington, they had neglected to second the efforts o: the Executive and to press their recommen dations upon the atteution of Congress. The writer says, 44 the regulations of the trustees in regard to text books and studies are daily and openly violated." In a few instanced this may have been true; but the teachers have been recent ly notified, by direction of the trustees, that such violation of the rules wdl no longer be permitted, and it is net appre hended there will be any more complaint on this score. 44 >ome \oung female teachers," it is said, 44 have seventy pupils crowded into their narrow rooais, while others tiave less than one-hall that number." Only two schools, it i- believed, '? haw le?.s than one-half that number"'?one, tie female departmc ii cf the First district school, and the oilier a primary johool on the western bi rder of the city. The great want at present is new school-houses, and this went has olt^n been brought to the attention of the Councils by the trustees. The present B ird has not bet n neglectful of their duly in this respect. They have pre pared a report on the subject of school houses, which will doubtless be laid lore the Councils this evening, in which they earnestly renew the recommenda tions which have heretofore been made, to erect new and substantial school houses, to be constructed m the best manner, and on the most improved plans. It is to be hoped that the city which has. heretofore been so liberal, will no longer neglect this important matter. The writer says there is no uuifoi m system of instruction in the public school in this city. We trust there never will be! We hope there never will be a Procrustean system of instruction estab lished, to which all must conform. All good teachers have some peculiar quali ties, either natural or acquired, by which they are distinguished, and which lbuy stamp inefl'aceably upon their pupils, ard thus give a maiked and distinctive character to tlicii schools. The same is true ot sc1kk>1 disci] line One teacher whom we have in mind, has acq.ired much reputation for the order which prevails in his school, and which has been secured by a liberal use of the strap Another teacher has quite as good cider, but never u>es corporeal punishment. Thi uuc g .v . lis t.y ftfti the other by love. A tbiid lacier se cures diligence and punctuality by re i wards, and a fourth attains the same ob jects by a cultivation of the moral pr:n ? ciplcs, and by "nspiring a love for what is true and right. Another charge is 44 the want of sys tematic organization that causes the six teen thousand doll irs our citj' annually ' appropriates for education to be really less valuable than ten thousand properly expended." Let us look at the fa<*ts as presented by the lest anntnl rej>ort cf the Trustees. Amount paid for salaries of Teachers and assistants, $13 23H ?3 Tlie writer would scarccly wish this sum reduced. Rea s of school rooms, $1-138 32. Books and stationery for indigent pupils. $257 41. Repairs of school houses and contingent expenses, ?1 010 22. Pur chase of new furniture, 72 Fuel and stoves, $43f? 22. Premiums and continent expenses of B ard of Trus tees, $213 36. Silary of Treasurer, S20<\ Salary of Secretary, $'200. *i * n ? well set how anv re !uction culd he male in any of the above i?c:r?s wi'liou? injury to the schoo's, unless, j. n*h*nce, ihe exorbitant sa'arics psid to tha Trea surer and Secretary. It appears, by the samn repnit t' at the cost to the city for instructing each pupil in the public schools, was six dol lars and nire cents. Wc should like to knox wh^rc such instruction vs a child receives fur a year in many of our public sc'tooL can be se cured for less money. We had occasion to inquire at two private schools in the city th ? price ot' tuition for a child about twelve years old and found it to b? $100 for the school year, about forty-four weeks, and if in struction was given in what arc called 44 accomplishments," it would amount to more than two hundred dollars March 10, 1855.

B< ing directed to it, he burst in, and presenting a double barrelled pistol at the gay Lotha:io, at tempted to discharge it, but tailed. The scuttle being heard by others, as sistance arrived, and the weapon was ta ken from him. lie was taken before a justice and examined in the afternoon, and in an interim of the trial, while stand ing at the doorway, he levelled another pistol, which he had procured *ubsequent to the first attempt at the destroyer eif his peace, and discharged it. The b:ll missed the intended victim, but the in | jured husband, supposing it had proved effectual, declared that both were r ow ruined, and he was satisfied. Subse quently he seemed convu sed. and avowed that he had taken poison, but whether this is actually the case, is not determined. Both parties are from J'enn sylvania. British Rw;i lar> ?Capt. Marryatt. speaking of the military strength of this country, s:?id that twe nty thousand lirit ish r-^uiars could march from one cm el e>f the L'uion to the other without nntv;:i >c | rious resistance: but he added a most ; important hint -and it was, that he 1 doubted whether a single one of the 1 twenty thousand would ever get back. His idea was, that being without a ?tan(i 1 ing airny, the country taken without sur prise. with no time to conceit plans of resistance, the twenty thou*ani regulars might, by rapid movements, traverse the whole length of the Union; but in at tempting to letum they would find the aspect of things materially changed.
