The premiums will then be presented to the boys, with, an appropriate address, by N. A. Sturdivant, Esq.

The entire effect was admirably conceived and executed, and afforded high satisfaction to old and young alike. The next order of the evening was the presentation of the three silver medals given by the Institute to the three scholars most distinguished for punctuality, good conduct, and progress in study. The medals were quite pretty and handsomely engraved. The presentation was made by N. A. Sturdivant, Esq., in a neat, prettily conceived and admirable address. One to John R. Marks, the inscription stating it to be given as a reward of "application and progress," another to R. C. Burton, for "punctuality and good conduct," and the other to Bernard Remke, for "zealous devotion to learning." While the inscription did not so state, these medals were awarded only to those scholars who stood pre- eminent among their fellows for the three traits, punctuality, decorum in school, and actual

Miller represented to the officer that he was on furlough, and that his Colonel's commission was in his truck at home. The prisoner's counsel, N. A. Sturdivant, Esq. introduced no testimony yesterday; and, after examining the witnesses present for the Commonwealth, the Mayor remarked that if the accused was a Colonel, as he represented, nothing was easier than to produce the commission. As matters stood at present, he was not only liable to a charge of obtaining goods by false pretences, but forgery also. He would, therefore, adjourn the further investigation of the case to Friday, and remand the prisoner to jail.

Walker, having secured a good field battery, will receive the names of applicants for membership to the company they propose to raise at the office of the Life Insurance Company, opposite the American Hotel. They intend the standard of membership to be equal to that of Company F, of this city, and parties joining them may expect the same treatment they mate out to themselves.

Mr. Smith was induced to do so because prisoner had been introduced to him by a young Baltimorean, named Tormey, as "Colonel Miller," and no case of false representation on the part of anybody claiming to be an officer had before occurred to induce a suspicion of the trick. Prisoner was defended by N. A. Sturdivant and A. Judson Crane, Esqs., and prosecuted with his usual ability by Littleton Tazewell, Esq, Attorney for the Commonwealth.
