The city was rife witii rumors yesterday of the during
outrages of Thuggery, and the conduct of men beretofose {
leeugniaed an gentlemen and good members of society
tine report was that a I mud of noted Thugs In* I crossed ,
the lake on Saturday night, and, for want of better
amusement, shot a man who kept a coffee-house soiue- 1
where near Madisouville. and luauagod to eaeape the j
vigilance of the people of tliat neigliliorliood, and sucosed- j
cd in making their way to tlie city. From all the information
we can gather we believe the Madisonville outtage
is correct, and the '1 rings who per|>etrated it are now
iu tlie city. The knowledge of this tact does not tend to
a pacification of affaire. Another element of discord has
lieen thrown into the "boiling cauldron, "lied Bill,"
"Bill Ki-tl," or "Bill Bed No. 2," or by wbut name this
ubiquitous Htug is known, it was currently reported
early yesterday morning, was arrested by tlie authorities
of Carrol I ton, and immediately bailed out iiy Mr. Masou,
the mayor of Carrollton, and that he was subsequently
arrested in the first district by the present chief of police.
Colonel Jacques, and we presume be will be bailed out
again by some distinguished Thug behind the curtain.
These movements, we can tell the powers that lie, will
not answer. Tlie people want quiet. The authorities
ruust show their hands. The question is now narrowed
down to Thuggery v*. The People.
POLITICAL INTELLIGENCE.
The Sumter (Ala.) Democrat, which at first opjiosed
the conference bill, lias changed position and now sustains
it. expressing its "willingness to yield to the voice
of the majority, believing that it requires no sacrifice of
principle."
The Boston Atlas aud Bee recapitulates the vote of
Massachusetts for governor in 1857 by congressional districts,
and thinks that the whole eleven districts of that
State may be carried this tall tor the American republican
candidates The two doubtful districts, composed in )>art
of Boston, it thinks, can be carried if the proper course U
taken. Hon. L. B. Cumins has peremptorily declined a
re-election from the 4th district.
Charles Francis Adams, only son of John Q Adams,
is spoken of as. a candidate for Congress in the district now
represented by Mr. Danireil, whom ill health obliges to
decline being a candidate for re-election.
Wendell Philips, in his last abolition speech, said
"Kansas is off the table,'' and Mr. Buchanan wanted it
out of tne way ; and that new issues were coming up.
He remarked:
" The last year has witnessed tlie culmination aud the
end of the Kansas rjnest ion ; before we meet again it will
I lie Cuba, Central America, perhaps the slave trade."
Hon. John U. Pettlt has been nominated by the republicans

In the 8th congressional district of North Carolina, recently
represented by the Hon. T. L. Clingmau, Col. W. |
W. Avery is the democratic candidate to All the vacate j
ty, and Z. B. Vance the candidate of the opposition. D. j
Coleman, who was also a democratic candidate, lias retired
front the canvass, lest the success of the party
should be endangered by running two democratic candidates.
PERSONAL INTELLIGENCE.
It is said that the election of Htith as mayor of New
Orleans is to Ire contested, and that Mayor Heauregunl
lias been legally elected Many votes given for Beauregard
were rejected by the cturvaasers, because the names
of candidates fur other offices were improperly placed
upon tire same ballots, and the whole voted together.
All such ballots were wholly rejected bv the canvassers.
Hon. W. IV. Bhyce, of South Carolina, having been
solicited to iieiriiit his name to be used as a candidate for
the Coiled States Senate, declines on the ground that Iris
name is now before his constituents for re-election to the
House of Representatives.

Charles Dickens appears in his own journal, in denial
of the statements which have been published respecting

false ; that all the domestic trouble be has had has been
brought to an arrangemeut which involves no anger or ;
ill-will of any kind ; and tire whole origin, progress, and

The special order was then taken up, I sing an at-t imposing
taxes tor the year 1858 at the rate of 76 cents for
every hundred dollars of real ami personal property.
After a verbal amendment, the bill was read a third time
aud passed. This bill is in the usual form, except that
the rati; of discount for )>aymeiits within sixty days is
fixed at eight per cent., instead of ten per cent, as heretofore.
A joint resolution in relation to the bridges over the
Washington canal was -t* dyed from the lower board,
und read three times and passed.
The bill to organize a police system for the city of
Washiugtou, and to reduce the several acts in relation
thereto hit3 one, was received from the lower board, with
sundry amendments.
The first amendment was to strike out that clause
wb'ch provides that no |*?lioe officer shall be allowed to
l?uOBM or remain a member of any illegal or diaoiderly
l>olitical club, association, or organization; which was
not agreed to- yea* 6, nays 7.
'lire next ainerndment wan to strike out the word
" Marshal' wherever it occurs, and to insert "Captain"
in lieu thereof.
Mr. Moork moved to amend the amendment by striking
out the word " Captain," and k: t.Ung the word
"Chief' in lieu thereof: which was uar -_d to, and the
amendment of the lower lioard as amended was then
concurred in.
'lire amendment of the lower board in relation to the
summer uniform of j>olice'officers was amended by the
insertion of a clause that such uniform shall be such as
may he designated by the mayor. The other amendments
having been concurred in, the bill was again sent down.
After remaining for some time, waiting for the action
of tiic lower board on this hill,
Mr. 1'caunon moved that the board adjourn. He was
not aware that the city was on fire, or in imminent danger
of an invasion by a mob, that there should l? such a
desire to complete this bill to-night.
The question being taken the motion was not agreed
to. After a further interval,
Mr. Iiaowx came up from the council chamber and informed
the board that there was no probability that the
Itolice bill would be disponed of to-night, as the amendments
l>y the Board of Aldermen were pronounced by
them to he "not grammatical, and perfectly unintelligible."
[Laughter. J
On motion, the board then adjourned until Monday
next, at four o'clock, p. m.
Common Coi ncil. ?The board assembled at the usual
hour, and proceeded to the transaction of business.
Mr. 'I'mec, from the select committee to whom was referred
the communication of the Mayor in relation to the
reorganization of the polite, reported that, after full consideration,
they recommended the hills passed by the Board
of Aldermen. Although the additional police to be employed
would increase the expense, still the lawless spirit
which prevails demands the expenditure. The population
of the city now auiouuta to nearly sixty thousand
inhabitants, which in itself guaranties the expense, as it
is believed that the force at present employed falls short
of that of other Atlantic cities in comparison with the
population. Tire report was ordered to be printed with
the proceedings.
On motion of Mr. Wallace, the board then proceeded
to the consideration of the hill to organize a police system
for the citv of Washington, and to reduce the sev
eral acts in relation thereto into one. The bill having
been reail through, the board proceeded to consider it by
sections.
Mr. W?iu(t moved to strike out of the section in regard
to the appointment of police the words prescribing
that uo policeman shall be a meuilwr of any illegal or
disorderly political club, association, or organisation ;
.which motion was agreed to.
Mr. Lu>ri> moved to amend that section by inserting
the wonts "or of any political club, association, or organisation."
He believed the adoption of his amendment
calculated greatly to add to the efficiency of the
|K>lice. He wished to be understood not as interfering in
any way with the political opinions of any member of the ;
] wilier department.
Mr. WALLACRdid not want anything in the bill that !
would in any way cripple the Mayor in the discharge of
his duties. He was willing to bold the Mayor responsi- ,
hie for the men he apiw -inter!.
Mr. I&otb did not think hi* amendment would inter- |
fere with the power* of the Mayor
Mr. Omsk was surprised by the remarks of Mr. Lloyd.
He intended to have let by gones be bv-gones, but the J
gentleman said lay down our cudgels and have no party. ,
He recollected when the gentleman's party was in a ma- i
ioritr when there was not a single member occupying !
a wat in the board of Common Council who woa not a '
member of that party. Mayor TWers then turned out
every man, and left no man to tell the tale. He wm one
of the victim* of that proscription, but was after* an Is
elected to the Common Council with another gentle- (
man. They were not treated as representatives of the
city. I nt as foreigners representing a foreign jiarty. and
not -i,i American party. Cottld the gentleman find iu ,
the i ity a man who belongs to no jwrty * If lie could,
he would give him '> (laughter]
Mr. Ijsith said the gentleman had mistaken his remarks.
He had mid nothing about the appolntmeut of
men of any party, and all he asked was that certain men
should be removed.
Mr KowmmaoK Name the men
Mr. Ixotii replied that he would name them to Col.
Rerret at the proper tins. If he a< knowledge! all the
gentleman said to be tnie, this was no time for retaliation.
Tlit question viun then taken and the amendment rejected.
Mr. Wauai i moved to amend the fifth section to uu
to make the salaries of the magistratos all alike, at $400
pei annum.
Mr. Ohmk hojied the gentleman would not pre** the
amendment, as they hud not consulted the magistrate* m
regard to it.
Mr W?LUi't did not see why some magistrates should
receive larger salaries than others.
Mi. Onus replied that they did double duty. There
was veiy little service in the outakirts of the city.
Mr. Jonks im|uired whether these gentlemen would I*'
willing to exehuuge with those ou the outekiits.
Mr. Wallack said they were quite willing to do ao.
Mr. Mi l xiv was out; of the special eommittee. and
could not see why these magistrates should not lie put
upon the same footing.
The question l>eiug taken, the ainendment was rejected.

substituted for (k wunl "marshal," so that the office
should be that of "captain of police ''
Mr. Milu<y moved to ann-nd the eighth section, so
that if the rule* nud regulations for tlie Auxiliary Uuanl !
should be changed by placing one branch under the di- j
roctiou of the captain, it bhould lie the duty of that offi
cer to report to the mayor ; which amendment did not
prevail.
Mr. Wilson moved to amend no that the salary of the
captain of police, ehould the city police and the Auxiliary
Ouanl be united under one head, bhould not be more
than tl ,.'>00
Mr. Joxn op|?osed the amendment, on the grouud that
they could not get a suitable roan for less than the
$2,000.
Mr. Palmku Raid the expenses of the corporation would
not be increased one dollar by making the salary $2,000,
as the thief of the city |K>lice at present received $1,000.
Mr. Mrixor was surprised that Mr. Jones was desirous
of giving $2,00" to the captain of police, when he was
unwilling to increase the pay of certain magistrates $50.
Mr. .loses was satisfied that the services of a proper
officer could not be obtained for a less sunt than $2,000,
and it was the sentiment of the city that it should Is*
paid.
Mr. Hohsvk thought $1,500 would obtaiu a suitable
man, and In the present condition of the finauce* wax as
much as the corporation could aAord to pay.
Mr. t 'ANTuruAji said it was time enough to cousidcr this
when tiie two jiolicc force* should be united.
Mr. Obmb and Mr. Powell Isitli expressed themselves
in opposition to the amendment; and theu the question
was taken, and the ameudment rejected?yeas 10, uavs
10.
(hi motion of Mr. Wallace, the further reading of the
bill was dispensed with.
Mr. loom offered nn amendment providing that any
police officer found loitering in or around tuvenis or
other drinking establishments in the city, unless hi the
discharge of some specified duty, sliull be promptly dismissed.
After a brief discussion, the amendment was rejected?
yeas 10, nays 10.
Several amendments hi regard to the uniform of the
police having been rejected,
On motion of Mr. Mom s, an amendment was adopted
jierniStting the police to wear linen coats of the same
make of those now worn.
And then the bill, as amended, was passed.
The Hoard then took up the hill from the Board of
AMrrnwn simrdeitieiit.'il Li tlie Kill to iirimrii/c it notice
system for the city of Washington and to reduce the several
acts in relation thereto into one. Tne bill authorizes
the Mayor to employ an additional police foroe not
exceeding forty men at $50 each per south, to be placed
under the control of the captain of the auxiliary guard.
'Hie bill also provides that no person shall lie appointed
such policeman who ia a member of a Are company or u(
a political organization.
Mr. 'IVrton moved to strike out that |?art which refers
to political organizations ; which amendment was agreed
to.
Mr. Okmk said it was well known that the finances of
the city were in a deplorable rendition, and no man
could tell the floating debt of the city. He ventured to
say when they got this bill In the floating debt would lie
upwards of $250,000. The water question had been referred
to the citizens and they had voted it down.
Mr. Wallace stated that a majority voted for the proposition.
Mr. Okmk replied that out of the 6,700 votes cast but
350 voted for the proposition.
Mr. Wallace insisted that a majority had voted for the
proposition and that it waa lost, because two-thirds of the
people had not voted in favor of it.
Mr. Osmk charged that the object of that proposition
was to fund the present debt of the city.
Mr. Wallace said he expected this opposition, lie
knew the finances were in a very bad condition, but the
gentleman voted for every appropriation for the improvement
of his ward, and voted against every appropriation
for the improvement of other wanls. Were they to stand
back when their lives and property were in danger ? liesides,
tlie force was only wanted in an emergency. He
moved to reduco the number, however, to thirty, to correspond
with the number of the Auxiliary Guard.
Mr. Okmk inquired wliat was the present jiolice force.
Mr. Wallace. Twenty-eight men.
Or. Obmk said it was fifty-eight men.
Mr. Wallace insisted upon his statement, and added
that, under the bill just passed, the number would >*e increased
to thirty-three.
After further di?cunsion, the bill was pottpoued to il
Monday next?yeas 11, nays 8.
On motion of Mr. Obmk, a joint resolution was adopted
for the ap(M>intment of a committee of two from the
hoard of Aldermen, and three from the Common Council,
together with the mayor, to wait upon the Secretary
of the Navy and request him to cause one or more of the
new si oops-of-war to be built at the Washington navy
yard.
A joint resolution from, the Board of Aldermen for the
appointment of a committee to examine ami adjust
the accounts of Mr. McCalia, late collector, was then
taken up and passed.
The joint resolution from the Board of Aldermen authorizing
the city collector to receive in payment for purchases
made at the late tax sales by contractors and
other bona fidt holders the evidences of debt due them by
the corporation under authority of law, and directing the
mayor to give his directions' for such debts, when found
correct, to be paid over to the collector, and to be received
at the bank as money, was taken up, and, after considerable
discussion, postponed.
The hoard then again took up the police bill, returned
