Evening Schools.
Besides the day schools above mentioned, the board of
directors keep open for four months each year, a sys-
tem of free evening schools. These schools are de-
signed to afford the privileges of education to such
of the youth of the city of both sexes, as are neces-
sarily engaged in some useful employment during the
day, and thereby prevented from attending day
schools. The usual attendence of these schools each
year is about one thousand scholars.
