KM.iiujKMKNT or th? Capitol.?In our 111 at
number we expressed ? hope that the Presi
dent in oarrjrug out the law of Congress in
lvlntion to the enlargement of the Capitol,
would, if possible, avoid interfering with the
beauty, symmetry and harmony of our venerated
Capitol?oonceived by the great Washington,
and executed by Thornton, llallet, Hudfield,
llobnn, Latrobe, Bultincli, Andre, Franzoni,
Jardellu, Bouaui, Mariiini, C?usici, and other
nrtisis of distinguished merit. We have since
then pondered over the subject, and sought
further information in regard to it, and the
result has been to establish us more firmly in
the desires we then expressed: that a proper
respect for the judgment of our first President,
nnd a just appreciation of the fair fame of the
distinguished artists employed upon this noble
structure, should forbid the destruction of its
fair proportions, either by the addition of wings,
or by an eastern extension, or by " gutting" the
interior and mutilating the exterior. At the
same time we expressed our preference for tin
President's Inst suggestions, of an entire new
building for "the senatk," and one for "the
IIepuesektatives' Hall"?the former to bt
placed north of the Capitol, and the latter at
the south, distant therefrom not less than fifty
feet, and connected by low and subordinat*
galleries and corridors, so as to produce an ap
peavaucO' of individuality and distinctness in
each structure, and not to attempt " to establish
one grand massive structure" by making the spaci
between the old and new buildings only twent?/
feet, ns proposed by one of the architects. To
construct the new buildings upon this plan
would utterly destroy the fine proportions 01
the old buildiug by making it too long for its
height, and would likewise destroy the sym
metvy of the new buildings by the attachment
of the old structure to them in the manner
In order to gain sufficient space for a suitable
Representatives' Halfand surrounding galleries
for the multitudes of visiters who will pour into
Washington'from all parts of the country t<
, hear our distinguished orators on special occa
sions, it appears to us that the size of the inte
rior of the south wing building for the Repre
sentatives should not be less than 150 in length
by 150 feet breadth, which would produce an
area of 22,500 superficial feet; from which will
be deducted 11,250 square feet, occupied by
desks, seats, aisles, lobbies, &c.; and the re
mriining area, 11,250 feet, being divided b\
nine, the number of square feet which each per
son will occupy shows that the hall and galle
ries will not comfortably seat more than 129(
persons, including members, officers and visi
ters. These dimensions should in truth b<
doubled, in order to meet the increasing de
lininds of our rapidly increasing population;
but this cannot be done without producing dis
proportion between the wings and centre build
ing. The Senate wing must be as large as the
Ilouse wing, to produce uniformity. Fortu
nately the site is sufficiently large without pur
chasing more ground, being upwards of 1500
feet wide, as we are informed.
Cabpentkr's Wages in Philadelphia.?The
journeymen house-carpenters have been on a
strike for five weeks?struggling for an advance
of twenty-five cents per day. They have not
been paid their full wages at the end of the
week, not more than five dollars being given t<
each journeyman weekly, the balance remaining
in the "bosses'" possession, and in too main
instances, says a writer in the Ledger, " it if
never paid at all, and there have been cases it.
which journeymen house carpenters have been
discharged for simply asking for their ful;
wages." This is a sad state of affairs, truly,
but we hope it is now near its end. The writer
whom we quote goes on to state that "an or
ganization is being commenced, which will give
the journeymen the entire trade of Philadelphia
City and county. A carpenter's shop belonging
to the journeymen themselves has been estab
lished, and to it they refer builders, architects,
owners of property, and others who may want
work done." We sincerely hope they may be
nided in this just and honorable enterprise bj
the working-men of this and other cities. The
prosperity of our country is dependent upon
the just reward of labor, and tiiis can never be
obtained but by the concerted action of the la
borers themselves. We are all interested in
this thing of making a day's labor represent '
the largest possible amount of property, and they
who do not approve of such a thing can take
their only remedy, and do their own work.
Capital, being the augmented product of labor,
is as powerful as many laborers. Many labor
ers must therefore unite to defend themselves
from its oppressions. There used to be some
talk about " the criminality of combinations,"
bnt we hear nothing of the kind nowadays, and
probably never shall any more. The sons of
toil have been slow to learn their interests, but
they are getting the lesson pretty well now,
and will not again forget it.
Medical Prescriptions.?A correspondent
of the Philadelphia Ledger says that if physi
cians were compelled by law to write all their
presciptions in English, we should not so fre
quently hear of medical manslaughter.
We think so, too, and that responsibility
should be made to rest upon any physician
whose prescription should prove defective, or
ambiguous to the plainest English scholar. It
is the pride of enlightened medical men of the
present times, that pedantry and mysticism are
not needed to sustain them in the public es
The Erie (Pa.) Commercial Advertiser flies at

Appletor's Mechanics' Maoazine and En
gineers' JorRNAL, for Juno, has been presented
to us by Messrs Taylor fit Maury. This is the
sixth number of the first volume. It is edited
by J alius W. Adams, C. E., and published by
1). AppletoD ft Co., New York, at twenty-five
cent? a number. It is worthy the careful ex
amination of every scientific man and intelli
gent meoliaftir.
It it stated that Senator Sonle, of Louisiana,
intends to sail for California in a abort time.
Organization or i hk City Councils.?The
Councils assembled to-day at 10 o'clock
Th# board of Aldermen organized, by the
re-election of its old officers, B. B. French,
esq., President; W. U. Magruder, Vice-Preai
dent, and E. J. Mlddletou, Secretary.
The Board of Common Council, also, re-elect
ed the officers of the lust year: Silas II. Ilill,
President, and Hichurd Barry, Secretary. Jacob
Kleiber was chosen messenger to the two Boards.
A joint resolution was ottered in the BOard
of Common Council, by Mr. Pepper, directing
the Mayor to cull a meeting of the citizens, to
make arrangements for the celebration of the
approaching fourth of July: adopted. This
resolution was luid on the table by the Board of
Mr. Wilson, of tlio Second Ward, introduced
into the Board of Aldermen a bill appropriat
ing $500, to be expended by the Board of
Health for cleansing gutters, &c. ; which was
read three times, and passed.
Mr. Morgan, of the Seventh Ward, submitted
n resolution, asking the opinion of the Corpo
ration Attorney as to whether Councils have
any power to prevent the erection of a gas man
ufactory near the Capitol grounds, which would
iend to the depreciation of the value of public
and private property in that neighborhood:
The two Boards subsequently met in joint
meeting, for the purpose of examining and
counting the returns from the several wards ol
he votes for Collector, Register, and Surveyor,
<nd the result was declared as follows:

for two years from July 1, 1851.
A joint resolution was passed in the Board

Council proceedings in the American Telegraph.
Monday, June 30th, was fixed as the time
for electing police magistrates.
Steamer Champion.?The new steamer Cham
pion, Capt. Strnndberg, arrived on Saturday
?veiling from Washington city, aud will to-mor
row commence her regular tripB to Annapolis
uid the Eastern Shore. The Champion was
ouilt at Washington at the ship-yard of Mr.
vieorge Page; Mr. Win. Smith, of this city,
ioing the work. Her engines are of one hun
dred horse power, and were built by Belknap,
?jf New York. The Champion is a comfortable
ittle boat, and looks as if she would be a fast
die. The captain informs us that she run six
'een miles on the Potomac in fifty-one minutes.
She is not yet entirely completed, the finishing
touches of the carpenter and the painter being
yet required.? Baltimore Sun of this morning.
About one hundred and sixty feetlong, twenty
four feet beam, eight feet hold, and three hun
dred and eleven tons capacity, is not so partic
ularly little, good neighbors of the Sun. We
admit the skill and taste of your mechanics to
put on finishing touches, but at the same time
assure you they cannot excel some more of the
<iime sort among us. Mr. Wm. Smith and hU
sons have done themselves honor, and had it
not been for Captain Page's desire to meet the
demands of his Baltimore customer, we would
have shown you embellishments and finishing
touches your folks would have looked upon with
idmirution and delight.
But we have a beauty under way, of which
more hereafter.
The Pi'blic Gardens.?We have often had
?ccasion to comment upon the good behaviour
>f youths and others visiting the public grounds
of Washington. Wo yesterday, however, were
grieved to notice a couple of exceptions to this,
in which rude young persons attempted in the
| way of taunts and ridicule to give offence to
I unoffending visiters. The boys and young men
| of this city are interested in preventing such
things. They enjoy privileges worth preserv
ng; and any sign* of unruly and indecorous be
haviour may lead to the restriction of their privi
'eyes. If rowdyism shall once find a foothold
here, we shall all suffer alike. But the admirable ,
order preserved in past times induces us to !
hope that the transitory forgetfulness will not j
Moonlight Excursion.?To-morrow after
noon, the steamboat Columbia, Capt. Guy, will
leave this city for Indian Head, forty miles
down the river, passing on her way Alexandria,
Fort Washington, Mt. Vernon, and other inter
esting points. This excursion is gotten up by
the Washington Light Infantry Band, whose
.ielightful music will lend a charm to the pleas
ures of the occasion. We are assured that every
possible care has been" taken to provide for the
comfort, safety, and gratification of as many
passengers as shall desire to unite with the
Band. Mr. Eckakdt will supply the substantiate
and luxuries of the table, and no better com
mendation can be given to that important de
partment. Good order, beauty, sociability, and
a safe return beneath fair Lnna's smiles, are all
most confidently predicted.
City Lots at Auction.?Mr. A. Green, auc
tioneer, will to-morrow afternoon sell a large
number of valuable building lots in different
sections of the city. Sale at his rooms, Penn
sylvania avenue and Sixth street.
The Rights or Labor.?It often becomes a
matter of grave necessity in our cities for the
operatives in particular branches of industry to
: " strike" for increased pay, limited time, or
some other desired change or regulation ; and
at such times groat inconvenience and often
privations are experienced by individuals who
' cannot be tempted from the line of good faith
with their fellows. Would it not be well in
each city to hold a select council of deputies
from all the trades, to whom might be sent, in
every case, a statement of facts, and by whom
should bo assessed and collected a tax for the
relief of the "strikers." whose cause the council
should approve ? Injudicious " strikes" might
be thus in an advisory manner prevented, and
good ones rendered efficient. Working men and
women might both be protected and benefitted
i by this arrangement.
Kosciusko Cab* in Chancery.?The argu
ment in this important and interesting cane whs
opened on Saturday last, by Major Tochman
for the heirs, and he addressed the Court from
10 a. m. till 3^ p. in., when the Court adjourned.
It met agaiii this moruing at tin, to hear the
further argument of Maj. T. lie is still address
iug the Court, (nt2? p. 111.,) and his argument haft
been throughout exceedingly interesting, is well
arranged, and delivered in admirable style und
taste. All who hear him, amoug them some of
our best lawyers, express their admiration and
surprise, that a foreigner could have acquired
so profound a knowledge of our law and prac
tice as he evinces by his argument in this case.
Major T. said on Saturday, that the preliminary
| question which seems to require to be settled,
before all others, was : " Have the complainants
' such interest in the estate of Gen. Kosciusko
' as would entitle them to such a decree as i
' prayed for?" In other words, "are they or ie
j either of them the next of kiu of Gen. Kosci
usko?" To prove the heirship of his clients,
Maj. T. produced a decree of their pedigree,
given on the 7th day of May, 1843, by the Court
of Assembly of the Nobility of Grodno in Rus
sia. After he had established the authenticity
of that decree of pedigree, he proved by depo
sitions, taken under a commission, that sucl
decrees in Russia fall within the scope of decreet
in rem, and biiul upon all the world, lie thei
proved by numerous English and American au
thorities, that such decrees have the same effect
in England and in this country; and, f'oiuidin;. j
uis argument upon this law, hoshowed that lieri ,
as in Russia, the decree of pedigree of the heir.
of Kosciusko is conclusive evidence against al j
j the world to prove their right and title in all !
j civil cases having for their object the recover '
of Kosciusko's property, in whatever country is
may be found. It was also shown, that (Jen.
Kosciusko made four wills; that the first an
I second, 17'J8 and 1800, are void, and have beei
I revoked by his third will, of 1810; that by flit
! fourth will, of 1817, he disposed of property, only
| therein specified, and the will of 1810 is also it
' full force.
Major Tochman also showed that Gen. Kos
ciusko's domicll at the time of his death was in .
I France, as had been conclusively shown by Hon.
Reverdy Johnson before the jury in Armstrong's ;
case, tried last week; and the Validity of tin j
will of 1810 was also made manifest?revokiiq j
all former wills, according to the law of Kosci- I
usko's domicil, and as such must take effec j
upon the personal property disposed of by it ;
The property disposed of neither by the will o. j
1810 nor 1817 must also dcscend to the heiif |
under the statutes of distribution in wliatsoevei
country it may be found.
At the time our paper goes to press, Majoi
Tochman is arguing that the securities of Coi ;
Romford, deceased, (administrator of Kosoius
ko,) the present administrator de bonia non o.
| that estate, and the administrator of Col. Rom
I lord, are liable to account for the assets of Kos
ciusko. We will hereafter notice the points o.
his argument in this respect. The case con
tinucs to excite great interest, and among tin
audience on Saturday and to-day we noticeo
I several distinguished ladies.
Upon inquiry to-day we learn the Hon. Rev
erdy Johnson will reply to the defendant's coun
sel probably on Friday or Saturday, when it if
expected that this protracted case will be sub
?nitted for the court's decision, which, however,
will probably not be made at an early day.
The Lynchburg Tragedy.?The death o
i Mr. Saunders was communicated through tin
papers of this morning. We are permitted t<
copy the following letter from a gentleman o
nigh respectability in that towu:
Lynchburg, June 5, 1851.
1)kar Sir: We are in the midst of a tre
j menuous excitement. A rencouire took plac<
this morning, just iu front of tlie market-house
oetweeu James K. Saunders (the son of Doctui j
James Saunders) nnd A. W. C. Terry, the edi
ior of the Viryitfian. Mr. Saunders made tbt j
attack by striking Mr. T. with a stick; where !
i upon Mr. T. drew u revolver, and fired?Mr. S. |
J arawing oue nearly at the same time?and three !
lires were exchanged, oue shot taking efl'ec> ;
upon the person of both parties; and, remark j
! able to tell, both were shot nearly in the iden
lical same place upou the body?tlie ball enter
iug just about oue inch above the navel. Tin
wounds are considered by the physicians to b>
mortal: neither can recover. This difficulty
J grew out of some strictures which appeared in
die Virginian of this morning, upon the cours.
I of Dr. Saunders (the father of James R. Saun
?Jers) in the convention. 1 send you the Vir
giman of this morning by the same mail that
conveys you this letter. In haste, .
P. S.? Four o'clock, p. m.?Mr. T. ami Mr.
d. still linger, but there is little hope of then
recovery. This is an awtul and appalling oc
currence?a most unfortunate and distressing
circumstance. Our community is overwhelmed
with sympathy for their families. In the death
of these two gentlemen we shall lose two wor
thy and much respected citizens. Such is tlu
state of feeling amoug the citizens generally,
that business is almost suspended.
Masonic.?The 24th of this month is the
anniversary of St. John, and will as usual be
celebrated by the Fraternity of Free and Ac
eepted Masons. We are informed that the
brethren of this city, with others probably, will
charter a steamboat and make an excursion to
Mount Vernon. An oration will be pronounced,
a sumptuous dinner prepared, and every ar
rangement made appropriate to the festive oc
The Patent Office Building.-?We stated on
Saturday last that the special commission, ap
pointed at the instance of the Commissioner of
Public Buildings, to examine into the adequacy
of the external walls of the new portion of this
building to sustain the arches of the gallery,
made their report on that day, recommending
additional strength to these walls.
Important Arrest.?Benjamin F. Brown, a
few years since a respectable nnd reputable J
officer in one of the public departments of the i
U. 8. Government, and afterwards a candidate
before the House of Representatives for the
office of Doorkeeper, has been arrested and
brought to this city, where he is now in jail, in
default, we believe, of $20,000 bail, charged
with a fraud committed upon the General Land
Office by means of forgery.
?'The Student, a Family Mueellany and
Monthly School Reader," is edited by N. A. Cal
kins, and published in New York by Fowler &
Wells, to whom we aro indebted for the June
number. It is an instructive pamphlet.
" Notks ok New Mexico, by Ilenry Hardy,"
in the course of publication in the Washington
Aews, are full of interest, and worthy a tnore
permanent form than the columns of a news
paper offer. As soon as completed, they should
be collated and put forth in book-form by some
influential publishing house.
Gone Home ?George Davis, about fitly years
j old, a baker by trade, was taken up in the
! streets this morning by Officer Handy, for being
! drunk mid disorderly, and sent by '?><juire J. L.
Smith to the familiar scones of the workhouse.
: lie was obfuscated and obstreperous; and,
j when they were about to fasten his hands, made
! sorao remark about tying h?11 in a band-box.
, \et the "ruffles" were put on his wrists.
Interesting to the Agitatku !'?The great
I " Agitator' fancies his pursuits in this country
?><? well, that he is to return and dwell among
as. The New York Tiibune Bays:
" George Thompson, M. P., according to an
nnouiicenient in the Liberator, will take his
leparturo lor England in the steamer which
leaves lioston on the 17th. We understand that
ic will resign his seat in Parliament and return
to the United States in the fall?probably to
alee up bin permanent residence here."
Mr. Webster.?A call for a mass meeting 01
'lie citizens of Massachusetts to nominate Daniel
Webster for the Presidency is in circulation at
Mr. N. Ha/.kn, of Cincinnati, jeweller, was
| 'obbed last week of $0,000 worth of gold ami
silver watches.
Gold Hunters?We see it stated that hun
Ireils of men are leaving the cities of Gardiner,
ilallowell, Pittston, <S;c., in Maine, for the gol<
?nines lately discovered in Somerset county, in
that State.
A paragraph going the rounds of the Eng
'isli press gravely states that President Fill
