to the 13th September. “ The first class, is divided into two sections. The first section containFirst Class. ing four boys were candidates for the junior scholarships.
The second section was examined chiefly by written questions, proposed by the head master, Mr. Smith, and approved of by the Local Committee, who superintended the examination. The
of this section, consisting of ten boys, are from thirteen to fifteen. The answers of three, were bad, four, middling, and three decidedly good. Should certificates of proficiency be awarded, these three are deserving of them, and they would prefer them to book prizes. They are placed thus in the order of merit1. Durga Bar Mittra.
| 2. Ubhoy Churn Bagchy.

1. Ubhoy Churn Bagchy. | 2. Shamanand Sen, deserving of prizes.
“The second class consists of twenty boys, out of which four were Second Class. absent on sick leave. Their respective ages are from
eleven to fifteen. Mr. Chapman examined this class, assisted by the head master. In history, geography and arithmetic, nine boys passed a very satisfactory examination; Mr. Chapman was sorry to observe that several failed in grammar. It is to be hoped that, by increased exertion on the part of the master, a better result will be exhibited on the next examination in this subject, as well as in the explanations of prose and poetry, which also were not good. The following boys, however, are deserving of prizes : 1. Tara Bar Mittra.
4. Indro Bhushan Bose. 2. Umesh Chunder Sen.
5. Anand Lall Sen. 3. Ashutosh Roy.
6. Kishub Lall Bose. "Babu Upander Chunder Nyaratna considers this class to have acquitted itself very well in Bengali, and recommends as deserving of prizes 1. Anand Lall Sen,
| 2. Ashutosh Roy, the former having obtained the full number of marks in all subjects.
" The third class, in which there are thirty boys, from eight to sixteen Third Class.
of age, (seven boys being absent on plea of sick
ness) was examined by Mr. Hampton, assisted by the head master. Mr. Hampton forwarded the following report
“Some of the boys read tolerably well, but their parsing and explanation of their reading were indifferent. Their knowledge of geography was middling, and of arithmetic decidedly good: one boy worked correctly ' and readily all the six sums that were given, and several of the boys did 'five and four sums out of the six.' The prize students are 1. Anand Lall Sen.
3. Sustie Cumar Ganguly. 2. Basant Cumar Mitter.
4. Tarak Candra Sen.
5. Hari Mohan Roy. “ Babu Upender Nyaratna, who examined this class in Bengali, was satisfied generally with the progress of the boys. Sufficient time is evidently devoted by them to the study of Bengali, and the result has been good. The examiner has adjudged
1. Sustie Cumar Ganguly, | 2. Anand Lall Sen, a prize each, they having obtained the full number of marks in all subjects. “ The fourth class, section A, contains twenty-four boys, whose ages
from 6 to 11. Seven were absent, sick. It was Pourth Class, examined by Mr. Beaufort, in the absence of Dr. Palmer, Section A.
who was prevented, by severe illness, from examining this class as he had offered to do. From the tabular statement forwarded by Mr. Beaufort, it appears that, with a few exceptions, the whole class passed a fair examination, considering the tender ages of the boys 1. Bholanath Sing.
4. Juggeshar Roy.
6. Rajnikant Bukshy, have been considered entitled to prizes. Upender Chunder Nyaratna considers this a very promising class in the Bengali department. Out of seventeen boys who were able to attend the examination, two gained full
marks in reading and spelling, some four-fifths of the aggregate marks, some more than one-half and a few less than half. This reflects great credit on the pundit Nilmoni Nyaratna for his pains in teaching this class so successively
1. Bholanath Sing, 1 2. Rajnikant Bukshy, the two best boys, are deserving of prizes in this department. “The fourth class, section B, contains nineteen boys, from six to ten
years of age, twelve were absent from sickness, seven Fourth Class, only were present on the day of the examination, which Section B.
was undertaken by Mr. Beaufort, and scarcely any were present on the day fixed for their examination in Bengali. No statement was therefore forwarded by Babu Upender Chunder Nyaratna, the examiner of the Bengali department. Two boys
1. Tarni Churn Mitter, | 2. Rajinder Mohun Bose, passed a fair examination in English, in reading, spelling and arithmetic, and are deserving of prizes. “A few books were added to the library this session ; all are in good
condition, with some exceptions, owing to the humidity of Library.
