A Fire occurred at the Bishop's Lodge, King's House on Sunday night last, and but for the assistance of the Gordon Pasture women etc., the disaster would have been terrible to the new building, which is now costing the public at large many thousand pounds to erect for His Excellency's comfort in future. The hardships these people endure from time to time for the want of water for domestic use, etc. although the main pipe passes by their homesteads, ought now to call forth the Commissioners' attention to the great necessity that exists for the erection of a hydrant in a central place. These facts, we earnestly trust, will impress themselves upon the Government, and force them to do what is right.

The establishment of a Middle Class Boarding and Day School for girls chiefly, at Mount Moses about five miles from Stony Hill, advertised in our issue of this day, will no doubt be heartily welcomed by a great portion of our community. The Prospectus promises all the advantages of a fair English education, residence in England only excepted, with a climate quite as salubrious. We are informed that the Schoolroom is furnished with pictorial sheets of English History and American coloured Charts of Elocutionary Reading, Botany and Zoology besides the usual American and English class books; and that the various studies will be so graduated as to secure the best possible results. We learn that the School is under the supervision of Mr. J. J. Wood, an Assistant Government Inspector, of thirty years' experience in school work. The terms are such as will meet the necessities of the middle class in Jamaica. It does not appear that an "opening grant" has been applied for. Why such an undertaking should not be helped onward as well as some of the less hopeful attempts that have been "aided", we know not. The effort deserves encouragement, and in the absence of any direct aid given hitherto by the Government for the proper training of our daughters, there exists the greater need for prompt support from Parents to secure its success.
