We guess at the contents, for the reason that the Board repairing to consider it in secret session it was withdrawn without being read. But a resolution offered by Regent Estabrook adopting the child appropriiting $1,600 toward its support sustain "our guess." The subject was tabled. The session of the State Teachers' Association held in this city on Tuesday and Wednesday was largely attended, and we hear old teachers pronounce it the most successf ui session ever held. The exercises were conducted in accordince with the very full programme published by ub last week (with slight variations), and the addresses, papers and discus8ions were spirited and practical. Official engagement, occupying full time and strength prohibited us from attending and has also prevented the preparation of au abstract of the proceedings. Another week we will endeavor to draw upon the dailies for the best points. Officera ior the ensuing year were elected as foilowa : President- Prof. D.

A correspondent writes us from Dundee, aud 8uggests that we " blow our hom for a narrow gauge road until we get it," and expresses a belief that nine out of ten wül be in iavor of it. What say others interested? Our columns are opeu to a discussion of the subject. Moanwhile we hope that the directora will take the subject into consideración and inaugúrate some method by which the views of the stockholdera niay be obtuiued. If meaus can be obtained to build a narrow gauge road we say let a narrow gauge road be boilt, and that immediately. Will not the directora sound the advance as soon as the holidays are over 'i Prof. McKnight is to bnng out the Opera, " The Flower Queeu," for which he has had a large number of children in gratuitous training tor some three months, at the Opera House, coramenciug on Tuesday eveuing, January 13th, and continuing four evenings. Wherever Mr. McKnight has given his course of vocal lessons and haa brought out this Fairy Opera, both he and it have been commended in the warmest language, which leads us to predict that a rare treat is in store for our people. Mr. McKnight certaiuly ueaerves a liberal patronage. We gave the Argus to our readera last week in advance of Christmas, but thinking it unseem'y to play the same triok again, we take a back seat thia week, giving precedencu to the New Year. And instead therefore, of wishing our readers the usual Happy New Year, we may express a wish that a year already happily commenced may be so contiuued until the end.
