OUR GRADED SCHOOL. A First-Class Principal Chosen, and Preparations Being Made for its Opening.

The board of trustees of our graded school has at last selected a first-class principal for the school at this place. Last week we announced that Professor KIDD was the man chosen, but, owing to a disagreement between the professor and the county board of examiners in regard to the correct answerrs to several simple questions, he concluded he would not accept the school, which was generally conceded to be a very judicious decision upon his part. The board immediately tendered the principalship to Professor TIMMONS, a young man of high merit and qualifications, and he accepted it.
