General John A. Glecson of Xew York

Treasury on Saturday, was an olllcer in
the famous Irish brigade of tlio Third
Corps during tho wliolo of tho war, and
at tho .surrender was colonel of tho Sixty
third New York and a major-general by
brevet for distinguished gallantry. An
Irishman by birth, his great size six feet
eight inches made him as conspicuous
throughout the Army of tlio Potomac
(whero ho was known as "Rig Jack") as
his ready native wit and impetuous gal'
luntry in action. Sinco tho war business
reverses dissipated u comfortable property,
and ho recently came hero for employ

THE SEASON OPENED.
llusy Sunuiior Scenes Along tlio Wharves
For the first time this season tiie steam
boat wharves presented this morning the
appearance of real summer weather. Tho
Arrowsmith. which left her wharf at 0
o'clock for Colonial Reach, carried a largo
crowd to that popular bathing resort,
while the George Law, which left at the
same hour, was equally crowded with
people, for the high fulls at Chape! Point,
where the mercury seldom crawls up
above seventy degrees. Tlieso were the
only, long distance excursions which left
The most desirable trip of the dav
seemed to be on the Corcoran, which
made two trips, ono in tho morning and
(lie other in tlio afternoon, to Marshall
Hall, and carried large parties down on
cacli trip. Jfarsliall Hall is hardly recog
nizable this season. Tho resort has been
purchased by tho owners of tho Corcoran
nnd has been so much improved and so
many additional facilities for pleasure
added that no other neighboring resort on
the river can compare with it, Tlio
trees in the apple orchard which
shade the place have received an im
maculate coat of whitewash, and show
oil' to great advantage to tlioso on board
of the steamers passing.
Those that went down on tlio Thomp
son also enjoyed a sail on tlio river as far
down as Quantico. Xo landing was made.
A quiet, orderly crowd was on board, tho
olliccrs were exceedingly accommodating
and a no more enjoyable trip could have
been made. Thc'Mary Washington, as
usual, carried tlio largest crowd. Tho
delightful breeze that blew across tho un
obstructed decks and the music from the
instrumental baud lundo those on board
enjoy extremely tho twenty-live miles
down and return. The Mary lias recently
received an overhauling, and is more in
the shape of a steaniboat.this season. Her
"turtle" appearance no longer exists.
The season on the Potomac has now
fully opened, and daily excursions will
bo imufe to almost all the re.-orts with the
exception of Lower Cedar Point trips,
which commence next Sunday.

Justice MacArthur said that some of
those men excused wero physically the
healthiest looking sick men that he ever
saw. It seemed to him that the organiz
ing of a Jury in this District developed a'
remarkable number of unhealthy people.
He was unable to understand how sick
certificates could so easily bo obtained
and thought It must bo by patients im
portuning their physicians. There was a
looseness about it which should be cor
rected. It appeared to him that there wnia com
mon indisposition upon the part of the
citizen to avoid jury duty, and every con
ceivable pretext was taken to evade it. It
was the duty of a good citizen to assist in
upholding the law, and ns they neglected
to pcrionii ii, ne nopcu uereatter tutu tncy
would shut up and cease their complaints
about Juries In this District.
If they would by every excuse possible
try to shirk their duty, they should here
alter make no complaint of the Jury sys
tem, and if their lives and inoncrtv are
endangered they must blame no one but
themselves for the consequences. It was
useless to attempt to enforce the laws
when the citizens in everyway try to
evade their share of the responsibility lu
having them executed.

on tlio driver of tlio car, Charles it. West.
West was charged with threats of violence
to Ktigenu Sullivan, a passenger, and Sul
livan was charged with threatening tlio

the trouble grew out of the driver de
