There was a very good exhibition of work done by the children, at the School, on Saturday, May 11th, and the number of parents and others who looked in, in the course of the afternoon, to see the collection, shows that a proper interest is taken in their doings. The specimens of writing and sumwork were very neat; the collections of pressed specimens were varied and interesting. Of the merits of the needlework others are better qualified to speak than myself, and they have pronounced it worthy of all praise.
