For ibiadistrict northeasterly followed by
warmer southeasterly winds, fair weather.
Deaths.?Air. Edward Powell, a well
known river roan, and who for some time
past bad been steward on the tug Hercules,
of Baltimore, died at his home on Prince
street, near Fairfax, in this eity, about ?
o'clock this morning, after a short illness of
pneumonia. Mr. Powell yesterday com?
plained of feeling badly, and left Baltimore
in the evening for his home. He arrived
here about G o'clock, but did not go to bed
till about 9. In the meantime he bad ap
plied a plaster to his side, and had taken
some medicine prepared by Dr. Jones.
Shortly before S o'clock this morning he
awoke bis wife, who was asleep by bis side,
and told her that he wna dying, and in a
short time breathed his last.
Mrs. Maud Tacey, widow of tho late Jef?
ferson Tacey, died at her home on lioyal
street, uear Prince, about C o'clock yester?
day evening, of congestion of the brain,
after an illness of about two weeks. Mrs.
Tacey was born in England, and came here
with her husband several years before the
war. She has three brothers living in Eng?
land, but leaves no relatives in this city.
The Lamp-Lighting Question.?The
Committee on (Jas of the City Council held
a meeting last night in reference to tiie
lighting of the street lamp--. It was deter?
mined that the police shou'd continue to
light and extinguish the lamp- as they have
always done, but that the time for so doing
shoufd bo regulated by the committee, act?
ing in conjunction with the Superintendent
of Gas ana the Mayor, who would prepare
a schedule. This morning when the Mayor
reached his office he found a paper on his
desk, signed by all tho men on the force, in
which they stated that they declined to fur?
ther light the lamp3. Iu a short time, how?
ever, the paper was withdrawn, at Iheunan
imous request cf tho men, and tho lighting
of the lamps will continue as at present, till
Council meets, when it is probable the
matter will be called up in that body for
Diving fos a Body.?Divers were em?
ployed yesterday in searching the river for
the body of the supposed suicide, Waiter M.
Lawrence, of the third auditor's office. The
ice was cut at the draw of the Long bridge,
near I be BPOt where the watchman saia
that Lawrence bad jumped in. Diligent
search was made for tne body, but without
result. a brother of the deceased was pres
eut and superintended tho work of the
divers. Repeated attempts w ere made to
find the body, and the divers searched thor?
oughly the bottom of the river below the
draw and around the piers, and went us far
as their liues would permit. EQbrta will
a^ain be made to find the body, a brother
of the decmsed having visited this city to?
day at d otlered a ieward of |100 for it - re?
Tue River ?The continued low tempera
turn b.n completely closed the riv?r to
navigation and today a solid -heel ( f lee
extends from shore to shore. None of the
steamers have attempted to run to-day and
with the exception of the transfer lug and
barge w hich w ith difficulty made a trip from
this city to Shepherd's, nothing was moving
on the river. Tho steamer Jane Mosely was
ordered to leave Norfolk yeeterday evening
and assist the New York steamer John (lib
son up the river, but nothing has been
heard of either at this city. The ice now is
heavier and more solid than at any lime
during the winter and it is feared that navi?
gation will continue closed for some time.
Fire.?The alarm of fire about U:00
o'clock this morning was caused by the par?
tial burning of a small building attached to
the residence of Mr.T.I). Fecdall, at the cor?
ner of Fairfax and Wilkes streets, and used

of the fire is unknown, as there was no

tiugonthe ground, but extinguished the
dames, which were couiined to the interior
of the building, iu a few minutes after cet
