REPORTS OF LOCAL BOARDS. Reports from the various Local Boards exhibited the schools in a flourishing condition. In most of them there was an increase in the average attendance dur ing the month. Good order and atten tion to their- duties generally prevailed on the part of the sonolars. • Mr. Eaton, from the Committee on Colored Schools, presented a report, which exhibited a very encouraging con-` dition of these schools. Mr. Francis, Secretary of the Board, read a monthly report, embodying a statement of the attendance in the schools during the month, from which it ap peared that the - average attendance was as fellows; First ward, _634; Second ward, 1,084; Third ward, , 1,169; Fourth ward, First precinct, 428; Second pre cinct, 513; Fifth ward, 375; Sixth ward, 608; Eighth ward, 154; Colored Schools, 137; total, 5,102. .Mr. Lea:from the Cdmmittee appoint ed to consider the expediency of eatab ' fishing a High School in the city, stated that at the last meeting of the Committee there were just enough members present , to conatitute a quorum, and no action was taken in the matter. ( Mr. • Mont, from Committee ap 'pointed to take into the consideration the matter of the Seventh ward independent school district, reported progress, and thought they would be able to report finally at next meeting. Mr. Trimble presented a petition from two tax-payers in the Sixth ward, asking to be exonerated from the payment of the school tax assessed upon them. On motion, the exoneration was al lowed. Mr. King presented the following : WIERREAS, To a Committee consisting of one frOin each ward in the city has been referred the duty of investigating the matter, and reporting at some future time to this Board, with regard to the propriety or need of establishing a High School and electing a City Superintend ent; and whereas, said,Committee, by an unanimous vote of this Board, hitherto given, is to name the candidate for the position should one be chosen fix his salary, and define his duties, and as the whole subject is yet in an immature, state and not decided upon, and believ ing that especially in such cases as' this, the position should look for the man:and not the man for the po.altion, theiefore, Resolved, That the members of this Board refuse as yet to entertain applica `dons or pledge theanseivesto supixat any one *lib may ask for the position. Mr. King moved the adoption of the resolution. Mr. Lea asked `if the passage of the resolution would transfer the matter from the hands of the Committee back to the Board? Mr. King said such was not the intent of the resolution. It was merely inten ded to act as a check to any persons seekingsition , the po by button -holing the member either of the C'ommittee or Board. Some further discussion followed, after whicib a vote was taken on Mr. King's motion to adopt the resolution, which re sulted in a tie, the President voting in the affirmative. So the resolution was decided by the chair as lost. The Secretary read a commanication from the Sixth Ward Local Board. stating that Isaac Stewart had resigned the po sition of tax collector for the ward and that R. Dilworth had been elected to fill the position. On motion, the action of the Board was confirmed. The Secretary read a communication from Senator Graham, requesting the Board to take some action in regard to two bills accotnpanying his communi cation. The first bill- was : in relation to the formation of Reserve township into a ward of the city and. making adjust ment of all claims between the township and city, arising out of said arrangement. The second was in relation to giving the old wards the right to compensation, from new wards created out of them, for school property. ,Considerable discussion ensued in re lation-to the matter, some of the mem bers contending that the Board had no authority in either case, the local boards of the different wards interested being the only proper parties to whom the bills should be referred. On motion, the bills were finally re ceived and approved. Mr. Walton moved that the Secretary be instructed to notify Senator Graham of the action of the Board in regard to the bills. Carried. • Mr. Lea moved that. an assistant music teacher be employed in the schools. Car ried. ,Mr. Lea then moved that Prof. Harry Horner be employed in that capacity for the remainder of the present year. Car ried.

Sloan was allowed ten minutes to, ex hibit an astronomical apparatus showing the movements of the earth around the sun. . On motion, adjourned. Exton!'lire Robbery About six o'clock Monday evening the jewelry store of H. Knceble was robbed of jewelry to- the amount of $3OO. Mr. S., it appears, was at supper and had left his son in the store during his ab sence, when two men came in and re quested him to show them some watches, After elfamining the watches for some time they went out without purchasing. Subsequently one of them returned mid asked to see some rings. A tray of rings worth about three hundr h the ed dollars was sot out upon'the counter, from whic man selected one, and asked the price of it. The boy, not knowing what it was worth, went to ask his *father, and when he returned his customer had disappear ed, taking with him the tray and its con tents. No clue to the thief. PITTSBURGH GAZETTE: WEDNES]AY, MARCH 3, 1869 4 S . Min Shot--.l7lltainous, - Assault on a Peaceable Citizen—The Whiny Sel lers' Ring. A most villainous assaul t ' teas made upon Mr. Jno. Carvill, a quiet ai4peace able citizen, yesterday, by David Ainlie ,I a notorious character who, it would *- pear, is in the service of the whisky sel lers . of this city. It appears that Mr. Carrill; on Sunday last, was arrested for drunkenness; and during the time that he was in the lock-up the Mayor diScov ered where he•had obtained the, whisky and compelled him to make information against the parties selling it, which he did, much against his own inclination. The parties, who are whisky sellers in the Diamond, were arrested and fined by His Hotior, and Mr. C., who, under the law, waS entitled to a portion of the fine as informer, refused to receive it. Yes terday morning, while engaged at work plastering in the third story of a house on Liberty street, Al legheny, Audio came in and de manded of him a , portion of the money he had received for making the information referred to. He replied that `he had not received any money and that he not expectations an information with the of getting any. Audio then asked him what he made it for, call him a d—d informer, and pulled out a revolver and fired two shots at him, the first of which took effect in his right wrist, inflicting a serious wound, andthe other passed through the breast of his coat and vest, slightly cutting the skin. The villain thinking that he had killed Caryl% which was doubtless his Inten tion, fled, leaving the wounded man alone in the room. Mr. C. on recovering from the shock repaired to Mayor Brush's office and made information chargingi Audie with felonious assault and battery. _ A war rant was issued. This incident is another evidence of the fact, to which we referred some time since, of the existence of a ring or league among whisky sellers, the object of which is to prevent the enforcement of the laws relative to selling whisky, by just "such proceedings as these related above. It is only a few weeks since a man who had " ma de information against a whisky dealer i was attacked by three men and beaeath, for no other reason ter thanalmost that to of d having made the information. It is time these gentle men should know that they, with all other classes of citizens, must either obey the laws or submit to the punishment their violation of it entails. The matter should be investigated. There are. doubtless, men dealing in whisky who have no disposition to break the lava', yet the,public makes no discrimination in its censure, condemning all whisky dealers on account of the doings of a few rogues. _ Sunday Liquor Selling. Notwithatanding the fact that in addi tion to the act of Assembly prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors on Sun day, the violation of which is punishable by fine and imprisonment upon convic tion in the Court of Quarter Sessions, there is also in existence a law imposing a penalty of fifty dollars upon the of fender, one halt of which goes to the in former there appears to be . a disposition upon thel part of many of the liquor dealers to disregard tee laws, and the authorities are unable to enfarce a Strict , observance of thorn. ' That liquor is sold in this city on Sun day, and at divers places, is clearly evi slent from the number of drunken men found upon the streets on Sunday and Sunday nights- The police on; seem to be vigilant in the performance of their duties in arresting the poor, degraded, drunken creatures, many of whom, per , haps, had but a few moments ; prior to' falling into the officers' hands, paid their last dime over the counter of the ruin seller for a glass of his “double distilled poison," and, having no more money, is kicked out of the rum shop, and is picked up by the first officer whop asses ' con• ducted to the lock-up, where he is furn ished with lodgings for the night, and, at the Mayor's Court the next morning, having no money to pay the fine imposed upon him, is, committed to jail for ten or iwoiaty days, while his family, depend ent upon his labor for their daily bread, must beg, starve or steal, and the whisky seller, the only person who has violated the law or committed an offense of which the Courts takes cognizance, is allowed to remain undisturbed in the enjoyment of his ill-gotten gains. Mayor Brush has expressed a deter mination to prevent the Sunday liquor, traffic, and will doubtless use all the means in his power to accomplish that end, and every citizen who desires to see tile laws strictly enforced, shOuld feel it his duty to aid him in this work. The police might, if they so desired, aid the Mayor materially in his under taking. There are no persons,, except the man who sells whisky to the unfortunath wretch whoi drinks it, know so well who it is that sells liquor on Sunday as the policemen. They may not possess that personal knowledge of the fact as to 'enable them to testify to it, but when it is once ascertained that a man sells liquor, it is no difficult matter to obtain the evidence requisite to convict him of the offense. We are not sure that it is not the duty of the police officer, under his oatti, to hunt down these violators of the laws of both God and man and üb ject them to that punishment which, s we regret to say, is inadequate to the offense. Laying 1u a stock. ; The ice men are busily-engaged in lay ing in their stock 'for the coming season. The cold weather of the last few days has been quite a fortunate turn for them, as they will now be enabled to get a pretty good supply on hand, which other wise would not have been the case. Some parties have purchased the ice at the Union Park, which is said tb be quite solid and of a superior quality. This of course, stops skating at the Park, which' is regretted by all the skatorial fraternity. We have been informed that other par ties have contracted for ice, which is now being delivered at the Allegheny Depot of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne it Chica go Railway at six dollars per ton. One of our prominent dealers, whoa( ice house is located near the banr - of the river, succeeded, during the cold wheath er in Dticember, 1868, in storing one tou sandifour hundred tons, at Boost of about thirty-five cents per ton. Comparing the figures, if they are any criterion, he has on ample cause to congratulate himself making such a lucky hit. A Delinquent Husband. A warrant was issued by Mayor Drum yesterday morning for the arrest.of John Sbober, charged with desertion by his wife, Mrs. Phi'omens Shober. Mrs. Shober says the accused has for some time past spent all his earnings in drink ing, refusing to do anything toward the support of herself or their children.• She dended for a livelihooupon the du p c e t of four Cows, but th i s source of rev enue, she states, has been cat off by her husband) who, during her absence on MolgilfrY afternoon, sold the animals and expended the proceeds for liquor. Her case, if the statement•made be true, is a sad ono- Indeed,. ani), the • delinquent wretch should Wpiadto to feel severely the effects of his anutioominga. Real Estate Transfers. .

The unfortunate man was, fireman on engine No. 14, which at the time was at tached to a train of twenty-one coal cars. Re was engaged in throwing coal in the tire, standing with one foot on the tender and the other in the, cab, when the coup ling pirr or king bolt raised sufficient to allow the coupling to slip out, when the engine -immediately parted from the 'train causing him 'to fall on the track, and the entire train of twenty-one cars and the tender ,passed over his_ body. The engine was stopped as soon as possi ble, and the conductor and engineer went back to look for Nesmith, whom they found over a hundred feet from where the accident occurred, the body having been dragged along by the train. The body was shockingly inutilated;lone leg having been severed at the knee, one arm torn from the body at the shoulder joint, the head crushed and the remain ing portion of the body crushed and bruised. The remains were gathered to gether, placed in a sheet and removed to:. Connellsville where he resided, when cti an inquest was held by. 7 tice'Benjamin Prichard. The jury foun . a verdict in accordance, with the facts The deceased was abo, t thirty years of ago and leaves a widow - and one child. _.........--- Interesting OcCasion. Mr. J. \V. Drury, the popular and effi cient conductor of the McDonald accom modation train on the Pan Handle/Rail way, was made the recipient, a few/even ings ago, of athandsome and elegant gold. watch and chain, the gift Of his friends. The ceremony of presentation took place at the house of Ildr. S. H. Cook, at Mc- Donald Station, the speech of the occa sion being made by Mr. J. N. McDonald; Mr. Drury appropriately responding. An elegant supper was spread for the guests, and ail were heartily pleased with the affair. The watch was one of the best Howard Chronometers, with compensating I balance, adjusted to heat, cold jtnd position, and was as splendid a time piece as any :wan t need desire. It was obtained of Messrs. J. R. Reed ez Co., No. 6g Fifth avenue; whose time is the standard all of l roads. It is afor noticeable our facteadin thag tr the übli Co.?s fullk s w n a o t w c , hes w en well t t h h e ey m a e r r e it s o e ti e ß ct r g for railroad officials, as nearly all of the presenatious we have recorded of late have been of selections made at that pop •ular establishment. , Leisure Hours. -We have received. the March number of "Leisure Hours," our ably conducted home Monthly magrOne, published by Messrs.
