The Board of Education.
The Board of Education metl yesterdiy
afternoon., at the Court House, subsequent
to the( adjournment of thj meeting !of the
Boardj of County Commissioners, present,
VV. L. Smith, Chairman, and Messrs. H.
A. Bagg, A. J. Grady and J. A. Mont
The Chairman submitted the annual
report on Schools and Sehooi Funds,
which was ordered to be printed with the
annual statement of the . Committee of
Audit and Finance of the county.
Report of Mr Walker Meares, appoint
td to take trie school census for Wil
mington Township icomprising School
Districts Nos 1 and 2-j was received add
ordered put on file: !
lo the B.ard of Education
Gentlemen: I beg leave to submit
the censuti'of the school children,) of both
races, in the city limits. You are aware
that I have been engaged in takingj iu
addition to the school Census, a complete
census of the city. At the time, two
years ago, when Wilmington; School
District was most judiciously dividd into
two distr.cts, the Board of Education,
with the best lights before them, made
Market street the dividing line, supposing
that the line chosen would about equally
divide the population. The school census
taken in 1877, by the present School
Committee, showed that there! was
la considerable preponderance of school
cnildren in the rirst District,
viz: in the territory north of
Market street The result of taking the
census of the tilth e population of the city
of-Wilmington reveals a great disparity,
both in population and as to the number
of school children. I, therefore, respect
fully suggest the importance of altering
the lines at one?, before the next! appor
tionment, so that the law may be com
plied with, as near as possible. 1 would
also suggest that the order extending our
districts two miles beyond the city limits
be! rescinded, inasmuch as it will if per
mitted to remain a law only add to the
inequality which already exists between
the two districts.) Ihe extens:on was
made with a view to accommodating the
children in our vicinity. It is doubtful
whether it has proven of any benefit. It
will, for reasons above stated, prove a
great injury to our schools in the SeGond
District. You will! find that in making
an equable division of the city some diffi
culty will arise, but it is nevertheless im-
perative that tne line: snouia oe altered.
The following is tho school population
of the two districts, viz :
White Males' 490, females 490; total
980. Colored Males 803, females 957.'
total 1,760. Grand total, both races, 2,
1F7 "Males 434, females 482; total
016. Colore Males 557, females 708;
tdtal 1,205. Grand total, both races, 2,-
181. t 1 !
It was. ordered by the- Board that the
school limits of Districts Nos. 1 and 2 be
reduced to the present city limits.
The census reports from Districts Nos.
5 and 6 were received and ordered to; be
filed. - . .
The annual report of the Treasurer for
the school funds was received, examined
and found to be correct, and ordered to
be spread on the minutes and put on file
'A. R. Black, Eq , was re-elected
County Examiner for the ensuing year.
On motion, the Board adjourned.
The New Postal Card.
The new two-cent postal card has
made its appearance.. It hs two stamps
one at each end and space for two
messages. The; sender occupies one of
these, and the return correspondent the
other. One stamp is canceled at the
office from; which it is sent, and the
other from the office at which it is return
ed. The cards will soon be in general
circulation. : ' !

Publishers of newspapers are requested
to furnish postmasters with the number
of papers mailed by them within the
limits of time specified.
Froet seems near

will most likely be many more warm days

and nature commences preparations for
the wintry season. Amateur florists should,
however, see to the plants which they
wish to preserve through the winter, and
have them potted ready to take into the
bouse after short notice. j
Perilous Condition of two Yachtmen
all Night in the Water.
Last week two of our citizens, who are
fond of aquatic sports, betook them to the
catamaran boat of; Mr. S. G. Northrop,
built and owned by that gentleman, for a
sailboat. The wind was fair and 'the
skies were clear and the tide ran smooth
and our amateur sailors, while watching
the ripple of the waves near the boat as
she glided aleng, and enjoying the cool sea
breeze as it fanned - their cheeks during
the heat of the day, took no note of time
or distance uutil opposite to the historic
ground of Fort Fisher, when a visit to

been filled in', the nautical twaia lingered
until nearly sunset, before they embarked
again for their return. But; without a
thought or care for the night, as! long as
the heavens were free from! clouds and no
gathering or threatening storm appeared
upon the horizon, our heroes started with
light hearts and a self satisfied feeling of
a day's pleasure for. home. But. oh!
horror of horrors! when ! dark
ness had fairly j closed in
the siilor yachtmen 1 discovered their
craft had sprung aleik. Immediately
the catamaran was! put about and headed
Lr the shore, but they could only tell by
the dim starlight in which direction to
head; they could not be sure about steer
ing for any particular point, and when
within 250 yards of the beach, bump,

friends spent the night, only they were

it was, too, without a drop of fresh water
to put in, their thirsty mouths. It can
better be imagined than described how
anxiously dayl ght was awaited. With
no place to rest, and no opportunity to
stretch their wearied limbs and with no
drink to slake their thirst the cjndition
of the pleasure seeking couple was pitia
ble indeed. But all things hare an j end,
and so did that long and wretched night.
The dawn at last appeared, revealing
the subjects of our sketch clinging to the
mast of their sailboat, standing in an up-
light position I and in about six inches of
water, waiting for as?istance. The balance
of our story is soon ended. Cantain Dick

A week or two since one of the super,
intendents of the bands engaged at the
Rock Quirry, about three miles from
Rt.cky Point, in Pender county, found
the egg of a terrapin concealed beneath a
fragment of rock. He secured the egg
and handed it to Mr. (Thomas Williams,
Chief Superintendent; for examination.
Mr, William, being busy at the time
put the egg in his pockea until be cou!d
spare the time to constitute himself an
'investigating committee" on the subject
(of terrapin eggs. Being thus pigeon-holed,
in accordance with general principles,
the matter was forgotten until after; the
Upse of many days, and was then only
brought to notice by his - searching his
pocket for some article that he usually
carried there, when he discovered, not a '
terrapin egg, but a terrapin, alive and
kicking. Whether Mr, Williams feels
any very strong maternal regard towards
the terrapin or not, we are not prepared
to state, i ' !

A friend has kindly furnished us with
a record of the mean temperature of the
weather from the 1st to the 16th j of
September, for the past three years which
was obtained from the Signal Office in
this ci y. The record stands as follows
From Sept. lstt 8apt 16th. 1877--78.
From Sept. 1st to Sept. lth 818 76.8
From Sept. 1st to Sept. 16tu 187972.5
By this it will be seen that the mean
temperature for the first half of the pres
ent month falls considerably lower than
in the first half of the corresponding
months in 1877 and 1878.

The New Vicar Apostolic.
Rev. Mark S. Gross, pastor of St.
Thomas' Catholic Church, of this eity;
has been designated Vicar Apostolic o
North Carolina, by His Holiness,; the
Pope, and will, as soon as may be after
his induction into office, enter upon the
duties and responsibilities of his new po
sition. This position is that of a Bishop
of the Catholic Church, of equal power,
dignity and authority with any Bishop of
the Church, theonly difference being that
the field of labor is not elevated to that
of a Diocese, there not being a sufficient
number of Roman Catholics within
the limits of North Carolina to came
it to be made a Diocese. !
Father Gross is a native of Baltimore
Md, and a brother of Bishop Gross, of
Savannah, and is about 35 years of age.
He was educated at St. Mary's College, a
Catholic institution in Baltimore, where
be fitted for the priesthood. He came
to this city in 1868, which was shortly
after his ordination, with Archbishop,
then Bishop, Gibbons, and has been the
pastor of St. Thomas' Church ever since.
His duties will frequently call him to difa
fercnt porticos of the State, but will not
necessarily cause his removal from this
city. He is held here in the highst esti
mation as a God-fearing and Godaserving
man, a true Priest, and one who fearless
ly, truthfully and unceasingly fulfils
the duties to which in youth his life was
devoted. His elevation in the Church is
a pleasing surprise to all.
Hucksters complain that the Review
in a treasure prevents them from keep
