The session of this flourishing aoademy closed last week and the oustomary school "exhibition" so fat as relates to the junior class and-the little 'minims" took place last evening. The exercises were highly interesting and novel and were witnessed and enjoyed by a very large and appreciative audience who testified their interest by close attention and fre- quent applause. To discriminate where all were meritorious would be unjust. The little ones acquitted themselves ored- itably all through and received their hard earned and long anticipated "prizes" and tokens of merit with beooming grace and modesty. Muoh credit is due the faithful and indefatigable sisters tor the pains they have taken in the intellectual and moral training of the little ones and their profioiency amply testifies ...

D. 8ayers Congressman Martin ex- Governor Lubbock at the Hood's Brigade reunion Monday were not only valuable as displays of eloquence but also histor- ical effusions. The history of Hoods brigade as sketched by Major Sayersi stands out on the canvass as a picture at once startling terrible grand.

The description of the part taken by the brigade at the great Battle of Gettysburg where the Texans led the assault on Cemetery Itidge one of the most desperate charges of the war was ably sketched and attention drawn to the fearful losses the terrible carnage of that rnost bloody engagement.

The sayings of Henry George when found in his weekly paper the Standard have only the weight of a one-man opinion as expressed in paper originated and owned by him; but when as this month the North American Review dignifies one of his artioles by placing it on the first pages of its July number then hie views gain the added importance that such a recognizedly able monthly can give them. His subject as usual is 'The New Party;" bis treatment of it conclusive of its won- drous growth and future power; I. e. from his standpoint. He predicates the inevitableness of his party's success on the faot tbat.as between the democratic and republican parties.th'ere is nothing at this time to choose and "the process of disin- tegration and reconstruction is now going on."
