School of the Mechanics' Institute.
--The closing exercises of this school will be held on Friday night, in the school-room of the Institute
Similar occasions heretofore have been productive of much gratification to large audiences, and doubtless the public still feel an interest in learning the success of the instructors in teaching the young idea how to shoot.
This interest will induce a numerous attendance, and as the ladies are especially invited, they will probably honor the school by their presence.
The scholars will exhibit their proficiency in declamation, after which addresses will be delivered by Mr. A. M. Bailey
of the Institute
, and Col. Thos. J. Evans
The premiums will then be presented to the boys, with, an appropriate address, by N. A. Sturdivant
