CITY SCHOOL ITEMS.
The examinations this week, we un
derstand f >m tho superintendent, are of
course to bo rapidly made, and arc meant
to determine only approximately in what
grades, or classes, pupils belong.
Pupils will he further and more
scorchingly examined upon their en
trance into the schools, Sept 1st—these
examinations to begin at once upon the
opening of tho schools. Hence pupils
holding entranco cards will need to re
port promptly on tho opening day to
their respective schools. The space is
limited, ami first, comers will be first
served to desks.
No list* of hooks and materials will bo
issued to pupils until after these final
entrance examinations. Pupils will be
by this time most nearly where they are
best prepared to be, under the system
adopted by the board.'
The schools are graded schools—are so
of necessity, and hence tlioy are organ-
Ixe-' by grades, and not by localities. It
is determined, however, to divide the
lower grades if these prove sufllsiontly
large, and to put one section im a down
town building and the other in an up
town building. This can be done only
after the schools have been opened.
It is not supposed that everybody can
be satisfied with these preliminary ex
aminations and assignments to grades
and schools. If under the pressure of
circumstances any matters are overlook
ed by tho auporintaiident touching the
disposal of pupils, send pupils in for an
other examination without delay.

limes it has keen learned that y
terday the second chamber of the
supreme tribunal ol Ibis state took
up tbe case of A. K. Cutting, and,

This makes it cettain beyond
doubt that the acntenco which fal

agreed e t among tbe attorneys.
Thucase was heard with closed
doak*. The court holds that Judge
Calender and Judge Zuhia were
exactly right in trying and sentenc
ing Cutting, but under the circum-
staurra, think* he has now, by two
months’ confinement, suffered
enough, and they will order hia re
lease, to take effect probably by
Tuesday or Wednesday of next
The (6io fine is also to be remit

a'l that has been aaid in lavor of the
right or Mexico to try an offense
committed in the United States.
Tncrefore, the status ol tbe case as
an international question, is not and
will not in the least be settled by
the reha-e ol Cutting. It will come
