The Carondelet had not ascended Old river,

was Iron-clad, her brave commander and crew

Although It bos occurred at a time when bis

to-morrow the oara will commence running
from the Capitol to the Circle. Mr. James II.
Upperman, who for firteen years has beon the
popular and efllcient agent of the omnibus
ooach line, has been appointed agent for the
Washington starting point near tha Capitol.
Complaint lim often been made In other cities
nn account of the Injury which the rails prn.
duce to prlvato vehicles. The trouble has been
that the carriage wheela when crossing tho
track diagonally would get caught between the
rails, and In some Instances an axle liaa been
broken by this means. This waa the complaint
against Mr. Train's oelebrated'rallway In Eng
land, and whloh caused It to be taken up. Dut
the rail here Is an Improved pattern not so
deep, and beveled on the Inside so that little
resistance to carriage wheela la felt. They
have now been laid long enough to test this
matter, and aa we bare heard no complaint ou
this score, wo conclude tbat they will operate

A certain owner recently presented claims
for an old woman seventy years of age, subject
to phthlsla and otherwise Infirm, recently de
ceased. The commissioners candidly told blm
thtt ho need not trouble himself about her
value, for they could attach no value to tbe
services of suoh a slave, much to tbe chagrin
of the late owner.
Jnl.n Homier, a German, was arretted last
evening for riding at a furious rate down
Seventh atreet, In the Seventh ward. He told
the ofhoer tbat he waa a messenger for the

the officer considered reckless driving endan

Being somewhat " boozy," he reslstsd; but the
officer forced bim along to the station-house,
and locked him up for a hearing In the morning.
Quite un excitement waa caused, in the neigh

We understand tbat the commission of N.
Callan, Esq., aa commissioner nf deeds for the
