During the year 1872 there were 11,764 different names enrolled in the School Registers, and twenty-seven weeks is the avera re tine each pupil attended school. The closing of the Ohio Street School, and two rooms in the basement of the Bishop School, a' d the school time occupied in building the Lincoln and in rebuilding the Houghton Houses, and the opening of free schools by the Catholic Church in the western part of the city, hive reduced the enrollment somewhat; and the alarm created by the measles and small pox excitement during last term, seriously interfered with the school attendance.
