On Saturday last two more planes of glass, were broken, and after the whole of the school children had denied iaall knowledge of the affair the same two infant ajccfased each other of throwing the stones which broke the. windows. Mr Stevens, the headmaster, visited the parents, but was received in anything but an amicable manner, and finally beat a retreat.— At a managers' meeting on Monday he asked what course he should take.
