Or Kruge presi Jent declares himself powerless to pre vent the incursion. The recent Eire at Brooklyn. New York sunday. It has been discovered that 70 of the children missing at the recent fire at the Brooklyn orphanage Are quite Safe. The others Are supposed to have perished. Inter colonial news. New South Wales. Sydney monday. Eutre s telegrams the smallpox patients at Moss Vale Are pro Gressing very satisfactorily. The Orient . John elder which left Here for London took 1610 carcases of Mutton. Great dissatisfaction is at the pro feedings in connection with the Clifford Beach number of strangers Are in town from various parts of the country for the holidays. The Industrial exhibition at 1 Prince Alfred Park is better attended. I the new preceptor for St. Andrewes Cathedral will arrive by the Austral. Orphan Asylum Mittee. A special meeting of the committee of the above institution was held last evening at the orphan Asylum. Or John Ferguson president occupied the chair and there were also present messes Josephs Scott Richards Macaw Fitzgerald. Hickman Dyte Mkee Lakeland Martin Molloy and Fitspatrick. Appended Are extracts from the inspector of charities a report with replies from the committee to snug Estinos and allegations 1. There were 111 inmates 68 boys and 45 girls All under 15 years of age. The boys generally were untidy especially about the head four or five had nits hair which was excessively Long. Matron informed the House committee that the boys were constitutionally liable to the nits As pointed out by her to. The inspector previous to his examining them the children All appeared to be in Good general health. No comment. 5. Education. The at Tendance of children from outside is not general and i understand it is not encouraged. This appears to me to be a mistake As i think a Good healthy stimulus would thus be introduced. 23 children hold certificates. Five were obtained during the preceding week and the remainder last year. I suggest for consideration the Wisdom of getting situations for these Chil Dren As soon a3 possible. Mittee had special arrangements with the education department for the system of school ing and conceive that it is advantageous to the institution and the committee usually found situations for children when they have obtained certificates. were not by any Means in a creditable condition a general want of care and tidiness was visible. The bed Linen generally was not clean. The bed clothing for Many of the Beds had not been shaken before the Beds were . dormitories were regularly swept and dusted every morning and scrubbed once a week and when the in Spector called it was Early morning. Particular attention should be Given to no. 6 dormitory. It is difficult doubtless in this particular Ward to keep the bedding Sweet but a very great improvement could be effected. Reply no. 6 dormitory is occupied by boys afflicted with a certain urinary complaint and every care was taken to keep the place Sweet and clean. The commodes require attention and l would suggest that As far As possible they should be used As night stools Only and not As common urinals. Reply every care was taken As to this matter. 9. The Hospital wards Are under repairs. The Wall in two places appears very Damp. Not Only does this Render the Ward unsuitable for Hospital purposes but decay will set in. Re pairs then will be costly. Mittee had often drawn the attention of the government the the necessity of a building Grant in order to keep the building generally in proper order. Lavatories the lavatory at the exact end of the upper Flat was very dirty and a most offensive smell issuing therefrom. The Matron informed me that she had endeavoured to subdue the odour but was unsuccessful. This requires Early attention. The girls lavatory was in better order but not what it should be. superintendent had found out the cause of the offensive smell and the matter remedied. Towels the roller Towel system in use is bad and i recommend that child be required to use a separate Towel. opinion of the committee was that the roller system was sufficient for the children who were free from physical taint. Schoolroom requires to be thoroughly put in order. The approach near the Boot cleaning room is excessively bad. schoolroom being leased to ins government. The repairs ought to he done by the education department. The Boot cleaning room was in a very dirty con n d0 �. Reply since the visit of the inspector the trails had been whitewashed and the place thoroughly scrubbed. Closets the closets were duty. Dulse duplicate pans were provided one half of the accommodation should be closed at a time. I think special accommodation should be prodded for Small children. Reply re Comenda on Are being carried out. Pig Styes a. These were very clean and the gardens and grounds were exceedingly Well kept. to be a suitable scheme but there is no scale of quantities but the amount issued for the staff and the inmates depends upon the discretion of the Matron. Stores. Is Matron has charge of the provisions stores Linen &e., and the inspector recommended that Stock should be taken. to be r n a coup t o books and accounts were carefully kept and throughout showed evidence of careful supervision by the committee. 25.the superintendent is also Secretary and collect r t doubt if a can properly perform All he duties appertaining to Buch office.
