We feel it is due to Mr. HUGH LYNCH, who is the Master of this School, and to the National Board of Education, whose officer he is, thus publicly to testify that he is a most painstaking and successful Teacher and a very well conducted and respectable young man.

The answering of the Boys in every branch, was prompt and satisfactory, evidencing to us that they well understood their business, and rendering it extremely difficult, if not impossible, in many instances to decide upon the comparative merits of the Competitors. On the whole, the Examination was very creditable indeed to the Teacher, and to all the Boys abovenamed.
