    HUTCHINS SCHOOL.
    The half-yearly examination of the pupils at the Hutchins School terminated on Thursday, having continued ten days. For the first six days the examination consisted of writing answers to questions on paper, which is perhaps the best test of what a boy really knows; and the viva voce occupied four days. The Bishop was unable to be present, owing to his engagements on the other side of the island ; and the Warden of the College did not take his usual share in the proceedings in consequence of his recent marriage. Mr. Arnold, the Inspector of Schools, assisted for a short time at the examination in History; but, with this exception, the whole was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Buckland and Mr. Kennett. At the close of the proceedings Mr. Buckland addressed the boys, expressing his satisfaction at the marked improvement in the manner of answering the questions, and with the general conduct of the boys throughout the half-year, and then proceeded to read the marks of the half-year, and the result of the examination, by which the places of the boys are determined, and mentioned the names of those who would receive prizes.
    During the half-year, a valuable set of the maps published under the superintendence of the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge has arrived from England (having been procured through the good offices of Mr. Gell), and they are now hung round the School. It is perhaps not generally known, that those pupils whose parents wish them brought up for commercial pursuits are taught book-keeping, etc., and that French ¡s now made a part of the regular routine of the School without any extra charge.
    In the Mathematical Department, in order to meet the great difficulty of procuring books suited to boys, Mr. Kennett has written, and had printed, a small book on the Mensuration of Superficies and Solids, and the Rules in Plane Trigonometry, which has been found very useful in the School. He has also received from England a number of Logarithm Tables.

    ODD FELLOWSHIP.-The pretty little township of Green Ponds was visited by a few brothers of the Ancient and Independent Order of Odd Fellows for the purpose of forming a branch lodge, called the "Kemp Town Lodge," which was duly opened by Brother D. Pro. G. M. Palmer (in consequence of the absence of Brother P. G. M. Brewer through family bereavement), assisted by A. C. S. Kennett and other brothers. There were several persons initiated into the mystery of Odd Fellowship, and there would have been a much larger attendance if the weather had been fine. Brother Jones presented the Lodge with two handsome silver jewels of the Order. The first anniversary dinner on the occasion of the opening of the above Lodge took place in the evening. The chair was ably filled by A. C. S. Kennett, supported by D. P. G. M. Palmer, and V. G. Dandridge. The vice chair was filled by N. G. Pross, supported by B. G. Bush and B G. Brown. About twenty brothers and friends of the Order sat down to a very excellent dinner provided by host Ellis. After the various toasts had been given and some good singing, the company broke up highly delighted, and wishing success to the newly-established Lodge.

    THE CONSTABULARY.-Of late, public attention has been called to the alleged delinquencies of members of the police force, who about Christmas time became particularly zealous in making captures of several of the citizens, upon charges of disturbing the peace, and subsequent resistance of constables, &c. Some of these were proved to be illegal and unfounded ; and, in consequence, the tables were turned, and the constables were proceeded against by information, with various results. Constable Gardiner for taking Messrs. Barclay, Kennett, and Wilkinson into custody, was fined £3. Then came a charge of Capt. Collins against an acting district constable for not refunding the money said to have been taken from him on being brought into custody, which fell to the ground on account of informality in the proceedings. A few days afterwards, Mr. Frederick Moore complained of Serjeant McNamara for illegally apprehending and detaining him in the watch house. Mr Knight attended for the policeman, and pointed out an error in the information, the charge being so laid as to make it doubtful whether it was the complainant or the police magistrate that had been captured. Under these circumstances the case was dismissed, and Mr. Moore filed another information which came on for hearing on Tuesday.

    An immigrant servant of Mr. Kennett, Battery Point, named, Bridget O'Brien, yesterday charged a man named Mor- gan, and his wife with an assault. Mr. Wynne appeared for complainant, and Mr. Knight for defendant. The case for the prosecution was that the male defendant went to Mr. Kennett's house after a step-daughter, where she had gone for protection against her parents, who had been severely beating her, when Mr. Morgan struck the servant, and shortly afterwards on the servent going out, Mrs. Morgan struck her. Several witnesses underwent a long examination in support of the case. Mr. Knight, in a lengthened address, commented upon various alleged discrepancies in the evidence, and contended that as the complainant had denied that the daughter was at Mr Kennett's house, Mr. Morgan had only endeavored to brush past her to fetch his daughter home, and he proposed to call a witness to prove that Mr. Morgan committed no assault. The witness, a little girl named Ann Hennesty, having been examined, Ann Riley the daughter (most stylishly dressed) was sworn, and deposed that on the occasion in question she was shut up (hid) in Mr. Kennett's pantry; she had been beaten by her parents for speaking to a man over the fence. The justices found Mrs. Morgan guilty, and fined her 10s and costs. The male defendant was acquitted.

    Not so bad.-In his place in the Parliament Mr. Gregson alluded to a case which he insinuated had occurred in which D. C. Downham had "squared" a charge of drunkenness against Mr. Kennett. In consequence of what fell from the member for Richmond an information was laid against Downham by the Chief Constable, and the insinuation of Mr. Gregson entirely disproved. It will scarcely be credited that this serious affair-so serious as to be worthy of parliamentary notice-arose out of "a lark" of the hon. Member's own begetting. "Kennett said that Gregson and he had been drinking together, and that Gregson gave him in charge for being drunk out of a lark!"-and then he brings the matter before Parliament! Gentlemanly conduct this! No wonder the Daily News studiously avoids publishing the police enquiry in its entirety. They might well be ashamed of it! It would have done Mr. Gregson good to have witnessed the disgust which it occasioned in Court.

    Before Messrs Burgess & Elliston.
    Charge against a District Constable.-Symons v. Downham.- This was a charge preferred by the Chief Constable against D. C. Charles Downham for misconduct, in having on the 20th of December last admitted to bail a person confined in the watchhouse in the name of Henry Thomas on a charge of drunkenness, but whose real name was Matthew Kennett, which he well knew to be the case at the time.
    D. C. Morley deposed that he was on duty on the night of the 20th, when Constable Hayes brought in a person and charged him with being drunk. He had always heard that person called by the name of Kennett, and he believed that he was one of the masters of the Hutchins School.

    D. C. Downham had relieved witness about three quarters of an hour after Kennett was in the watchhouse. Kennett was rattling at the gate and making a great noise, and he, Morley, told defendant, that it was Kennett, but that he had given his name as Henry Thomas. Witness said: "what is your Christian name Mr. Kennett ?" when Kennett replied "you are a b----y liar, Morley, my name
    is Thomas." He entered the name Thomas because he still persisted in asserting that that was his name. When he (witness) returned to the watchhouse Kennett had been bailed out by Mr. Lazarus of the Waterloo. Witness did not know whether Downham knew Kennett's name but he should suppose he did.

    District Constable Holton proved also that Downham had appeared for Thomas, and paid the fine of £1 imposed by the Magistrate. Mr. Lazarus had become bail for Kennett. He had known him for 5 or 6 months. He did not think his name had been mentioned at the time he bailed him out.
    Cross-examined by defendant. The bail bond had been read over to him. He recollected that Kennett did say his name was Thomas; Kennett had no money to pay for refreshments when he went from the watchhouse to the Waterloo.

    Mr. Lewis Riley (Victoria Tavern.) He saw Kennett at his House on the 20th December last. Kennett borrowed a pound from him stating that he had got into the watchhouse and wanted it to pay his fine.

    Cross-examined by defendant : Kennett stated to him that he and T. G. Gregson had been drinking together; and that on the way home they were making a great noise when Gregson, out of a lark, gave him in charge for being drunk. He had never received the pound back from Kennett, nor did he ever expect that he should.
    In his defence, Mr. Downham stated, that although he had known Kennett for a long time by that name, still he had no means of disproving his assertion-oft repeated-that his name was not Kennett, but Thomas. Besides, his name had been previously placed on the charge sheet as Thomas by Morley. A person named Burt, had asked him (defendant) to appear for Kennett, and plead guilty, when he told him, that the Magistrates had given strict orders against the practice, but that he would if he could. In the morning he had asked for and obtained the permission of Mr. Giblin to plead for Kennett, or Thomas. The defendant further stated, that if he had erred, it was from good feeling, in wishing to retain Kennett in his situation. He had examined the witnesses, in order to show that he had no other motive to actuate him in what he had done.
    The Chief Constable said that he was sure of that. Mr. Burgess, after consulting for some time with Mr. Elliston, said that they dismissed the case. He would, however, caution the District Constable in charge, for the future. It was their duty to put down on the sheet the real name of the party, where they know a wrong one had been given. Nor would he ever consent to a third party appearing on behalf of any persons charged with the offence of drunkenness-no matter how respectable they might be. He thought no difference should be made between one man and another. He did not believe that the defendant had been actuated by any improper motive, in adopting that course; but, at the same time, he would caution him against pursuing it for the future.

    Mr. Elliston fully coincided with what had fallen from Mr. Burgess. It was evident, he said, that the matter had not been what was usually termed "squared," and, he was convinced, that the error, which had been committed by Mr. Downham, was one of judgment-that he had been led into it, indeed, from kindly feelings towards Mr. Kennett.

    Alleged Misconduct.-An information laid by Mr. Symons against D. C. Downham, was heard before F. Burgess, Esq, M.P., and W. G. Elliston, at the Police Court on Wednesday. D. C. Downham was charged with misconduct, in admitting a person to bail, in the name of Henry Thomas, whereas his real name was Matthew Kennett, which fact was well known to him. Several witnesses were called. D. C. Downham, in his defence stated that he admitted Kennett to bail in the name of Thomas, because he positively insisted that such was his correct name. Moreover, knowing that Mr. Kennett held the responsible situation of second master of the Hutchins School he thought that in all probability he would lose his appointment, if it were made public that he had been fined at the police court. The bench dismissed the information.

MR. SIMPSON, on behalf of the road sub-committee (which consisted of himself and Messrs Lakeman and Thompson), submitted their accounts and the vouchers for moneys paid by them, and gave a detail of the work that had been done. On the motion of Mr Ollis, seconded by Mr. Fielding, the reports of the treasurer and the road sub-committee were adopted, and the thanks of the meeting were awarded to those gentlemen for the manner in which they had discharged their several duties. The chairman then called upon the secretary (Mr Kennett) to read the committee's report which was to the following effect :- "It is now exactly twelve months since the destitution existing amongst the agricultural population in this district, caused by a succession of bad seasons, first attracted the attention of the residents in general. A public meeting of the inhabitants of Camden and its vicinity was accordingly held on February l6th, 1864, for the purpose of devising means to alleviate this distress. ……….. As the winter drew near, the attention of the committee was called by the clergymen of the district to the great want by the settlers of bed and other clothing for themselves and children. Accordingly, a quantity of blankets was purchased, and awarded to those who principally needed them, whilst, upon an appeal to the ladies of Sydney, a supply of useful clothing was readily obtained. The master bakers of Sydney most kindly likewise came to our assistance, and for several weeks forwarded very considerable quantities of bread for distribution. Weekly grants of corn meal, with sugar, have been made; regard being, of course had to the number of persons in each family. The committee also seeing the danger arising from the district depending almost entirely upon the growth of one cereal have encouraged the sowing of various seeds, and have distributed seeds which have hitherto been but slightly tried in this locality-such as flax, tobacco, &c.; arrowroot is also being cultivated in many places. Although the district embraced by the committee was very large, including the entire police district of Camden and Narellan, the working expenses incurred amount to only £17 2s. In conclusion, your committee rejoice to say that although the present harvest is certainly below average, yet the prospects of the agriculturists are much more cheering than at this time last year; and express a hope that the day may be far distant when a committee may again be required to perform similar functions to those which this committee now resign."
    On the motion of Mr. FIELDING, seconded by Mr. Cross, the report was adopted. And on the motion of Mr. BURRETT seconded by Mr. SIMPSON, the thanks of the meeting were tendered to Messrs. Kennett and Ollis for the very efficient manner in which those gentlemen had performed the arduous duties of secretaries to the committee. The meeting then terminated.

The following is a brief summary of of the proceedings:- Rev. H. Tingcombe having been voted to the chair it was proposed by Mr. Chisholm,
    seconded by Mr. Barker,: and unanimously resolved- "That this meeting learns with pleasure that it is proposed to do honour to the late James Macarther, Esq. by erecting a memorial window in Camden Church, enlarging the chancel and completing the church."

Tincombe and T.Hassal, Messrs. Barker, Oxley, Downes,, Chisholm, J.B. Martin,J.M. Antill, E. Martin, H. Lowe, E. Simpson, M. Kennett, T. Burrett, C. T. Cross, F. Ferguson, J. Lakeman, Dr. Chisholm,.Dr.Jenkins, withpower to add to their number.". Carried unanimously. 3. Proposed by Mr. Martin, seconded, by Mr. Simpson, and resolved-" That Thomas Barker, Esq. and John Oxley, Esq,, be joint treasurers ; and that J. K. Chisholm, Esq., and Matthew Kennett, Esq, be the secretaries". Proposed by Mr. Downes, seconded by Mr.Kennett, and resolved- "That an account be opened with the Bank of New South Wales, Camden, to be called the Macarthur Memorial Fund." A vote of thanks to the chairman having closed this meeting, the committee held their first sitting, and preliminary arrangements were made. A subscription list was opened, and a considerable sum was promised in the room. It was also mentioned that the churchwardens intended to request the Rev. H. Tingcombe to hand to them, for the purpose of publication, the manuscript of the sermon preached by him on the Sunday succeeding Mr. Macarthur's death, having reference to that gentleman’s sudden decease, the profit arising from the sale to be appropriated to the Macarthur Memorial Fund. The committee then adjourned until Monday, 17th instant, at 4 p.m. It is confidently expected, from the very high esteem in which Mr. Macarthur was universally held, both in this colony and in England, that a large amount will be collected to carry out the above named object.

    SCHOOLS-We understand that the Presbyterian and Wesleyan denominational schools in Goulburn will not be re-opened; and in order to supply the want that will in consequence be felt until the intended model public school is in operation, Mr. Welby has announced his intention of taking weekly pupils till that time. We have heard, though we do not vouch for the fact, that Mr. Kennett, B.A., of Camden, is likely to receive the appointment of head-master of the model school. Mr. Kennett was at one time second master of the Rev. G. Mac-arthur's school at Macquarie Fields; and his mathematical abilities and his skill as a teacher are spoken of in the very highest terms.

    THE GOULBURN PUBLIC SCHOOL - Considerable anxiety has been felt by parents on the subject of the opening of the public school, which many now begin to doubt will ever take place. In the meantime of course the children have to be sent some- where or other; and if their parents be satisfied with the progress they make they will probably be continued where they now go; and hence the public school will start under much less favourable auspices than if it had been commenced with something like promptitude. Some two or three weeks ago a letter directed to "C. H.. Walsh Esq., secretary of the local board" was received containing plans and specifications of proposed alterations, and suggesting that if approved of tenders should be called for the necessary works but Mr. Walsh is not secretary of the local board, and this for the very obvious reason that no local board has yet been appointed a fact of which surely the council of education ought to have been aware. Of course no one felt justified in taking action with respect to the alterations; and (illegible) secretary of education has been ill and unable to attend at the office for nearly three weeks past. It is now stated that the school will be opened on Monday, the 6th April; but if so it will necessarily have to be commenced without the necessary improvements being effected, whlch will be much to be regretted. It is said that the teachers may be expected to arrive in town in a day or two. As already mentioned Mr. Kennett will be the principal master. This gentleman's qualifications are spoken of in the very highest terms; and many persons go so far as to regard him as the very best teacher in the colony. His attainments are of a very high character. We believe that there will also be an assistant teacher for the boys' school. Miss Eliza M. Wright is appointed mistress of the girls' school. Miss Wright has been assistant teacher for two years, and was previously a pupil teacher for four years. She has passed her examination with considerable credit. The infants' school will be under the charge of Miss Annie Collins, who has been trained under the council and has for some time past been acting as assistant teacher in an infant school with a view to the present appointment. She was a pupil teacher for four years. So far as the appointments are concerned there seems every reason to be satisfied with the selections made by the council.

    THE GOULBURN PUBLIC SCHOOL.-The local board have received official notice of the appointment of the teachers, who have been instructed to commence their duties on the 4th May (Monday next). The names of the teachers are--Mr. Matthew Kennett, master of the boys' school; Miss Eliza Wright, mistress of the girls department; And Miss Anne Collins, mistress of the infants' department. By advertisement in another column it will be seen that Mr. Kennett will be in attendance at the school on Friday and Saturday next from ten to one o'clock to enrol the names of pupils; and it will facilitate operations much if parents will make it convenient to send him particulars of their children's names and ages during that time.

    THE GOUBURN PUBLIC SCHOOL. The breaking up of the classes attending the Goulburn public school took place yesterday, when, pursuant to invitation conveyed by advertisement, a large number of parents and of the friends of education attended. The first department visited was the infants'. There are here 80 boys and 60 girls, in all 130 chil- dren, on the roll, their ages varying apparently from between two and three years to seven or eight. The infants are under the care of Miss Collins and Miss Forster, and their orderly and attentive demeanour, and the ready answers given to the various questions put to them by Mr. Mclntyre, the inspector, showed that great care and attention had been bestowed on them. Several little songs were sung in a very pleasing manner, and the children were shortly examined in elementary geography, tables, scripture, and general subjects, giving answers with much readiness. After a few remarks from Mr. Mc Intyre, the proceedings in this department were concluded by singing God Save the Queen. The visitors then proceeded to the girls' depart- ment. This is under the charge of Miss Wright. There are 68 girls on the roll. What was most noticed here was the display of needlework and fancy-work. It was stated that but a very short time had been devoted to preparing this; but notwithstanding, it was all that could be desired, and evinced an amount of care and neatness most creditable alike to the girls and their teacher, The girls were examined and gave satisfactory evidence of careful in- struction in reading, arithmetic, geography, scriptural knowledge, &c. They also exhibited their copy- books; and the neatness of their writing was much admired. Several songs were pleasingly sung. Mr. Mc Intyre stated that it was in contemplation to give prizes, He announced that the school would re- open on the 4th January. The boys' school was next visited. This is under the charge of Mr. Kennett, head master, and Mr. McCredie, assistant. The number on the roll is 126. Mr. Mc Intyre and Mr. Kennett examined the scholars in geography, grammar, mental arithmetic, and Euclid. Several recitations were very well delivered, and songs pleasingly sung. Some specimens of drawing exhibited on the walls gave evldence of considerable ability. The boys were orderly in their behaviour and answered the questions put to them with great quickness. Mr. Mc Intyre, on behalf of the local board, the teachers, and himself, thanked the ladies and gentlemen present for the interest they had manifested in the school. He explained that the examination of the children had extended over several days. The institution had but a short time been established, having been opened in May last; and in each department peculiar difficulties had to be contended with; but he hoped that these being now overcome, in future the progress that the children might make would be more satisfactory.

    A Worthy Australian Schoolmaster. THE REV. G. F. MACARTHUR. The Rev. George Fairfowl Macarthur, who lately retired from the headmastership of the King's School, Parramatta, is a son of the late Hannibal Hawkins Macarthur, who was a nephew of John Macarthur, "the father of the colony," as he has been called, and the importer of the first merino sheep. Mr. H. H. Macarthur was for some years police magistrate in Parramatta, and resided at Subiaco. The Rev. G. F. Macarthur was educated principally by private tuition, was ordained a clergyman of the Church of England, and, for several years, was rector of St. Mark's Church, Darling Point. He subsequently established St. Mark's College at Macquarie Fields, between Liverpool and Campbelltown; and this almost at once became what might be fairly termed the ideal school of the colony. Masters and boys alike, of whom (the latter especially) there are so many now occupying positions in the colony, remember St. Mark's and its principal, and know that the school approached more nearly to that described by Mr. Hughes in "Sam Brown's Schooldays" than any similar institution in the colonies. This was entirely due to the strong personal influence of Mr. Macarthur. The old King's School, which had been so long an institution of New South Wales, was by this time falling into desuetude, and was at last closed. The trustees, however, made arrangements with the Rev. G. F. Macarthur, by which that gentleman shifted his whole teaching establishment to the King's School in Parramatta. This institution at once entered upon a career of success which has continued up to the present time. Mr. Macarthur's retirement occured more than a year ago. When it became known that Mr. Macarthur was about to leave the King's School there was an instantaneous movement among "the old boys" to recognise their old master whom they loved. The "old boys" of the New England district took separate action; and they and the others raised a handsome sum of money, which was duly presented to the retired principal of the school. This was accompanied by a portrait which cost £200. Mr. Macarthur is at present the Church of England clergyman at Bodalla; but his name is one held in reverence and affection in many households of New South Wales, and by many men fighting the battle of life, for which they were prepared by his admirable example and teaching as a Christian gentleman.

    HUTCHINS SCHOOL
    Official History and Record Written by an Old Scholar
    The Official History of the Hutchins
    School, by Basil W. Rait, published by J. Walch and Sons, Hobart.
    The history of a school, that is an old school, is enclosed in the history of its surroundings. The reverse view of this might be taken, and the history of the surroundings be contained in the school. Something of this may be the true version of the Hutchins School which is linked closely and permanently with the growth of Hobart, and in its influence has materially affected that
    growth.
    Mr. Rait, in his treatment of the subject, has made it history, and he has very exactly and clearly told the story of one of the two oldest schools in Australia in such way as to make it carry strong appeal to all those old scholars now scattered over tho world. Beginning with the foundation of the school in 1846 he traces the stages of its existence step by step to the present day.
    There are many interesting points in this work, apart from its purely historical aspect. Who, for instance, would guess that the famous Dr. Arnold of Rugby had influenced the founding and administration of the Hutchins School? Yet we find that in 1841 Dr. Arnold, in a letter to Sir John Franklin regarding the association of the school with the Church, laid down the principle that tho headmaster should be in Holy Orders. There are many such incidents and in establishing the links with the past, is also established that relation- ship that exists with British thought and tradition.
    The book is a complete record of almost, if not all, persons associated with the Hutchins School since its foundation. Old scholars will find in it much perhaps, that they did not know or had forgotten, and to all it is likely to be- come for them what the Regimental Colour is for the soldier, the emblazonry of past victories, and the promise of further conquest, and with them the memory of achievements.
    Bound in stout black covers with the school crest on the front, and illustrated by numerous photographs this his- tory deserves the full support of old and new members of the school.
