Daring the pant year six inmates left the asylum at thiir own request, nine went to servioe, one to the Almshouse, and eight returned to their fiiends. A conference was had last evening be tween the Fire Commission and the Com mittee on Fire of Councils, which resulted iu tLe committee agreeing to report an ordi nance on Thursday next for the repeal of the part of the law which prevents the Cammis Bioneis leasing real estate they cannot have absolute control over and entire possession of. Very many of the engine houses are rented in part to societies aud for school pur poses, and under the law as it no stands nme such can Le leased forthe usewf the new depurtment. At a meeting of the Board of Public Edu cation held yesterday the Committee on Sap plies asked to be discharged from the con sideration of the petition of A. B. Justice & Co., setting forth that their bid for slate pncils was twenty-six cents lower than that of J. B. Lippincott ifc Co., to whom the cou trHCt was awarded. The committee say that A. B. Justice & Co. did not comply with a rule of tho board which necessitates the making of affidavits on the part of all bidders for supplies, so their bid could not bo enter tained. The wish of the committee was com j.lied with. Mr. Green offered a resolution calling upon. City Councils to make the yearly appropriations to the board as soon as pos sible, as the schools were suffering from the want of supplies. Adopted. A resolution was then adopted authorizing the framing of a bill on compulsory edtna tion, and the meeting adjonrned. The Assay Commissioners prooeeded yes terday with their labors at the United States Mint. -The assay was completed, and the coins from the Mint and branches found to be fully tip to the standard, both in purity and weight. The weights used in the depart ment of tho Chief Coiner, Chief Refiner, and others were tested and fonnd to be accurate.

Addresses were made by ex-Governor Pollock, Director of the Mint, Judge Cadwalader, President of the Assay Commission, and Takoi Foukoutsi of the Japanese Commission. Domeatlo Affairs. The ltepnblican8 of Chester county met yesterday in convention. The snow-storm of yesterday extended over a great range of country, despitohes from California saying that it was rugiag on the Pacific coast. Foreign AfTtlrs. Many Bouapartist agents are at Bordeaux. A committee to negotiate peace has been selected at Bordeaux. Premier Gladstone denies that the Prus bians placed obstacles in the way of provision icg PhHs. The Orleanists held a canons yesterday, and tbey believe themselves to possess a clear majority. It is stated, on good authority, that Ger many will never restore to France thi terri tory covered by the city of Strasburg. In the departments of France where no German troops are stationed the Franos tiieurs are committing great depredations. Minister Cremieux has ordered the libera tion of Berezowbki, who was imprisoned for attempting the life of the Emperor of Russia. Ihe Italian Chamber of Deputies has, by a vote of 204 against 13'.), approved the policy of the ministry relative to the inviola bility of the Papal residence. A portion of the Paris war contribution has already been paid. M.EKKEliCIIOIi BAL MASQUE. The seventh annual bal masque aud carni val of the Mtcnnerchor Singing Society came off at the Academy last evening, aud was a grand success. The Miennerohor surpassed itself, and the months of labor the committee of arrangements have spent with the ohject of making the carnival a success have been more than repaid, for the grand entertain ment even exceeded the expectations of the most sanguine. Never did the Academy pre sent a more brilliant or animated appearanoe. The parquet te circle and balooDy were filled to overflowing with spectators, consisting of portly paterfamilias, stately dowagers, bright eyed, blusLing maidens, and gay aud gallant young gentlemen attendants. The dancing floor presented a scene that the pen of a Dickens could scarce do justice to. Every imaginable character was repre sented. The Academy was beautifully decorated with hanging -baskets, evergreens, and flags 'of different nationalities, and the music wai very buperior. It was a scene of joyous, healthful fun and morriment, and the oooa bion will long live in the memories of those who had the good fortune to be participants. As a pecuniary sucoess the affair exceeded expectations. To tne lasting creait or tue M&'nnerchor Society, It may be mentioned that the managers have resolved to appro Eriate one-half of the net prooeeds of the all to the sufferers by the French-German war, and no mean sum will be realized. The Mas Daiulas Comariaalea. A Washington despatch says that previous to the sailing of the San Domingo Uomuiis- bion, Allen G. Burton, their secretary, stated that the plan for the landing 01 the commis sion, w hich be should submit to the couvnis bion for their consideration, waa to land op posite the City of San Domingo back of the ibland. The reason for this course, he stated, was to avoid coming in contact with such persons only as should be sent by Baez, it Leing more desirable, in order to obtain a truthful condition of the facts to be ascer tained, for the commission to consult with the people as tbey might find them. It is believed that the commission have adopted Mr. Burton's plan. If so, ten or twelve days would elapse, in addition to the time contem templated, before hearing from them.

A correspondent furnishes the New York Iribune with the following interesting item: (Sir: One of the peculiar attractions t students and men of letters ia the cultured city of Edinburgh is an antiquarian book-shop which, for the past forty years, has been known as "The Head of Sir Walter Scott" for some sixty yean previously, simply as "Stevenson's and the history of wnioh is identified, to a greater or less extent, with that of nearly every Sootchman noted or dis tinguished in the various branches of litera ture during that period. It was a favorite resort of Jeffrey, Murray, and Sydney S mtb; of Brougham, liorner, and Thomas Brown; of Lord Cock burn, Sir Henry Raebnrn, and Sir Walter Scott: later, of Chalmers and Guthrie, Tjtler and Allison, Lockhart, Motherwell, and "Christopher North;" after them, of Hallam aud Aytonu, Gilfillan, Bell and Liing, Alexander Smith, the brothers Chambers, Burton, Maid men t, and Carlvle. Here was the proposed hdinburgli Jieview talked over, in the ii ter of 1801-2; here was the Bunna tyne Club discussed just twenty years after wards; here have been published hundreds of volumes, original' works, and rare reprints, illustrating the history, poetry, bibliography, and antiquities of Scotl ind; here have been executed the most perfect printing on vellum, the most accurate replicn of old folios in the rich blaok-letter text, tho most faithful fac-si miles of ancient MSS., and here have been distributed catalogues and other gratuitous ptmphlet publications now worth their weight in gold. The same family have owned the shop and carried on the business for generations. The present proprietor, Mr. Thomas George Ste venson, a ripe scholar and courteous gentle msn, is the only son of Mr. John Stevenson, a Hie-long friend of the author of "Wavar ley." Among the treasures of the shop there are preserved some fifty letters from this illustrious correspondent, all unpublished, and handsomely bound. The present Mr. Stevenson whose' recollections go buck to the early part of tho century is assisted in tne Discharge of bis duties aud the extension of his hospitality by an only ton, Mr. John A., himself the accomplished editor ot several works. During one of the delightful conversazioni here a few months ago the Rev. Dr. Rogers spoke of a project to erect a monument in Edinburgh to the Bruce, which had been undertaken by a num ber of bcotch noblemen, who had requested his friend Mr. George Crnikshank to model a design. Of this model the Doctor had just received a photograph, whioh he allowed the party to examine. This called forth some close criticism and some merited com pliments to the veteran artist, and was the means of bringing out some clever anecdotes of him. One of the gentle men present mentioned that one of his ear liest pictures represented the combat between the patriot King and the three assassins; and this picture, he stated, initiated the move ment in favor of correct costume, not only in painting but also in dramatic representation. Another stated that there could be no doubt but that be originated the now prevalent style of book illustration that of late years there had existed a mania for the collection of his etchings, which brought, wherever found, a large price. A number of these, with some rare volumes containing wood-cuts de signed by him nearly sixty years ago, were shown by Mr. btevenson. An American gentle man present declared it to be his belief that the reputation of Mr. Dickens' early works was in a great degree attributable to the admirable illustrations of this artist accompa nying them, whereupon he was assured that Mr. Crnikshank had illustrated one or two only of Mr. DickenV works. This led to a discussion, which resulted in a wager by the American that Mr. Cruikshauk had illus trated no less than six of Mr. Dickens' works. It was taken np by a publisher present, aud a note was at once addressed to the artist, at London, explaining the circumstances. A few days afterwards the following answer was re ceived, disclosing some singular facts in regard to Mr. Dickens. The veracity and honor of the writer cannot admit of a doubt: "263, PJaMrSTEAD R0AT, N. W. (LONDON', Nov. 12, 1870. Dkak bin: You have lost your wager! lor I did not Illustrate the works of the lute Mr. Charles Dickens to the extent that most peop,e Bupoosw; but I am not surprised at the factor ttieir being mlsle 1 ; tor the dUer artists employed upon his works imt taU d my style as cioaely us poHainie, and hence tue public supposed as Dlckeus wrote uuilur lite name of Boz' tlmt 1 designed and etched under the nanieot 'Phiz,' but who waa a very clever artist of the name of Hablot K.

McClellan, Esq. An Odd Physician. Dr. Monsey was one of Garrick's most clever and most three-cor-nertd friends. This Abernethy of his day was odd enough to leaven a whole century. This good-natured bear, the scourge of fools, fops, and fatuous persons in general, was a Norwich physician, who, coming to London m d attaining eminence, became resident phy sician to the Earl of Godolphin, and after ward physician to Chelsea Hospital. Monsey, who had seen the great Duke of Marlborougti when imbecile, and had been a boon com panion of Sir Robert Walpole, lived to be come Garrick's intimate. friend, and to brow beat the terrible 'SVarburton. Garrick nsed to tell a story of how be first ktew Monfcey. . lie was at an Old Bailey tiial, when he heard a gentleman ask a big rough fellow who stood before nitu to stana a little on one Bide, that he might see the Btncn. Ihe churl obstinately kept his plane; the gentleman repeated the request, and at last he said in a loud voice, 'Tf I were not a coward I wonld give you a blow, even though it is in a court of justice!" Garriok thought this observation must come from a singular character, and made bis acquaintance. Nothing could equal Mousey's rougn eccen tricity, which was coarser and more resem bled the bearisbness of Swift than that of Johnson. Bnt Monsey was more merciful and better-natured than Swift, who spared neither man nor woman in his wrath. Monsey once chided Garriok for not having asked him to dinner to dine with the Duke of Ar- gyle and some ladies of distinction. I would t nvH iikl-.ed r.-i. 4d trr!:'- 1 "but jou were too great a blackguard." "Why, you little scoundrel," said Monsey, "ask Lord Godolphin, one of the best-bred men in the world, if I do not behave as well as the politest of hia visitors." "Well," replied Garriok, "if you'll promise to behave properly, yon shall come." Monsey promised and duly came. All went on well till Mrs. Garrick began to neglect Monsey and load her noble visitors with ceremonious attentions. The doctor bore this till he found Mrs. Garrick paid no regard to the plate he (Monsey) held out, until at Inst, losing all regard for common deoencv, the doctor thrust it at her, exclaiming, "Wilt yon help me, yon beast, or not?" Garrick fell back in his chair with laughter; the Duke, though prepared for Monsey 's oddities, was somewhat surprised, but Mousey, not a whit abashed, shamed into good humor, plunged into a career of whimsical anecdotes.
