of the Old World have them in abundance,
and also the cities of the Union?New York.
Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Ac. Then
let ns have a chime of bells, too, Mr. Corpora
tion; and if you cannot do it yourself, call
upon Uncle Sam Hercules, his pockets arc fall,
an-l he has as much interest, lo-ally, and more
nationally, than you have, sir! "Items" has
more to say on this interesting subject, Mr
Header, but he is done for to-day.
b'l/it, Unat Built ami Launched hy Hous?
The bridge at 11 street yesterday afternoon
being crowded with people, attracted the at
tention of "Items," who, on approaching,
found two boys with some assistance, prepar
ing to launch a boat about sixteen or eighteen
feet in length, and five feet in width. On in
quiry we ascertained thu' the two youths, who
are named respectively George Flctcher and
Benjamin F Throop. agcl fifteen years, were
tho builders. They had built it in a back
yard on the avenue, and conveyed it to the I
canal on whttlbnrrourt. She is built in modern !
ftyle, sloop-rigged, painted, caulked, with I
oars, rudder, Ac., and is as complete a little '
craft as many of those that win the almira- :
tion of observers on the Potomac. All this !
wi>rk was done by the two boys ! Presently i
however, the launch came, the word was given,
che was propelled from the walls of the canal. I
named "The Yankoy Notion," and away she
went into the water, amidst the shouts of the
crowd, music, the tiring . f guns, and as lively
a demonstration, in mihiu-in, as there might
be at the launch of a frigate. She sets the
water handsomely, and doubtless will be ad
mired by all who visit her as she lays made
fast under the 41 street bridge. Such i3 a
specimen of the youthful ingenuity of two
boys of Washington. They are sons, it is un
derstood, ot J. \ . N. Throop, ?er|., engraver,
and Captain Fletcher, lately a clcrk in one of
the Departments.
" ?
A Son of Erin tu tkr ?A good old
?ong says something about "Paddy on the
eajiawl, but there ha* none been written j'et,
a.- we wot of, about his getting into the canal. I
^ esterdny, however, it w:;sverified in truth if j
not in poetry, which difference between truth
and jwietry reminds us of a test once made be- ;
tween an Irishman and a German. Tho bet I
was which could make the best rhyme.
iJtrui.111.?"I, Miles Fister.

Our Irish friend looked a little angry at !
this, hut gathering up his wit, he exclaimed ; ;

Kis;'d your wife. "
'? t?h, ' says Mynheer, - dash is notboetry!"
To be Mire not." says Mick,-but be dad its
tJirnr though, in} boy!"
Such was tho case with our friend, who truly
tell in the ea-.al and no mistake or poety about
it. He had just returned from a pleasure ex
cursion. and attempting to land, his foot slip
j el, the water was U>o strong for the whiskey,
and down he went, coming up however, pretty
II pooled off, but like a good hearted Hiber
nian, a- wo -appose he is, laughed as heartily
a* Any of (he lookers on. when he found him
self -ate on turn ft> tun. Father Matthew,
though, never beheld a better looking eold
water man than was, wo must now say, our
Sou of x\t'rj>inue.

jue-ts us to publish the following explanation
of the circumstances com ccted with a certain
police report appearing recently in the Star.
We do so with pleasure, adding, however, a
-hort extract from the Chief's books, which
shows that our reporter simply presented the
ta-e as it appeared there officially :
-?Wo are requested by Justice Thompson to
state that although it w;ts published in the !

head of Poli o l?v;M.ris," that a prisoner had I

Centre Murict ? Our market this morning
was plentifully supplied, and the prices wc
think very moderate, considering the condi
tion of things. We would not blame the far
mer for demanding a very ki%k price for his
produce, if he was unfortunate enough to be in
our principal market on such a day as this.
We think it a most pitiable sight to sec poor
women standing shoe deep in mud and water
with the rain pouring down, offering a few
chickens, a lew lumps of butter, or a few
vegetables topcrsons who are disposed to jew
them down to a penny. It is shameful that
men and women are obliged to stand on the
side-walk, under a burning sun or pouring
rain, without shelter of any sort, to furnish
provisions to the citizens of this ?? ^reat me
Holes m the Avenue.?Some months ago a
portion of the carriage way of the avenue?was
taken up for the purpose of facilitating cer
tain improvements. Since there is no neces
sity for the holes and breaks, it would add
greatly to the safety of persons riding or dri
ving along this our principal thoroughfare to
have them filled up. Wo have heard many
complaints from various persons, about the
danger of crippling, men and horses, and break
ing carriages in those gaps. Will the worthy
Commission oblige the public
The Condition of the City Hall?Though
exceedingly fair to look upon from the street,
our City Ilall is really internally in a .state of
woful dilapidation. Its brick pavements
(within) are worn away, and in many places
dangerously loose; while its walls show plain
ly a great need of the services of painters,
plasterers and carpenters Would it not be
well for the Levy Court or the City Councils
to have the necessary repairs put upon it,
looking to Congress to re imburse them for the
expenditures necessary to put in order the
portion of the building used for the Courts of
the United States and their various offices ?

brought on an immense stone for the base of

17 feet long by 7; is 27 in hes thick in (he
largest part, and 13j in the smallest, making
the average thickness 20 j inches. The weight
is 17 tons and was drawn on wheels by eight
fine horses to its destination in Lafayette

base of the Monument. It is fr?m Syming

Wise Move.?On Thursday night a colored
woman went to the watch house and demanded
to bo committed by Captain Birch. She
charged herself with having been fighting,
and being otherwise disorderly ; and said she
wanted to be cifnfln*d In the cells for fear ,
that, meeting with her opponent, she might
be forced to do murder. The Captain thought
sho was sensible, and gratified her. Yester
day morning she was sent to the " Farm-' for
safe keeping.

Alexandria Correspondence
Alkxakdria, Va., July 23, 1853.
Messrs. Editors:?The rapidly increasing
circulation of your paper in Alexandria proves
clearly that a discerning public will most as
suredly bdstow their patronage on that paper
which has the most merit. The columns of
theStor, ??editorials," Ac., since its appear
ance among Tts, have evinced a determination
to outstrip all competition, and must honestly
do we wish you succcss in your endeavors to
promote the interests of cheap journalism.
Allow uie to suggest to the good people of
Alexandria the propriety of doing away with
that discordant noise, produced with the
?'horns'' by the 'corporation musicians" eve
ry night at 10 o'clock. If it s an air they
try to perform, it seems to bo an unpopular
one with the darkies. A stranger, who had
never been here before, and who was iguorant
of our ancient practice, hearing those strange
nasal sounds the other nighr, ran for dear life,
ok though a thousand furies were after him;
bolting, with remarkable flcetness, :n a store
loroe off. Ill3 Teaia were quiutcl by
the kind proprietor thereof, who assured him
that it was only the '-Gabriels*' of the watch
liis Honor John Muir, Mayor, is are;1! veri
table, temperance Mayor, as will be seen by
his letter against that growing evil to the
Christian Era. During his experience as
Mayor of our city, ho has had many cases be
fore him growing out of tho evil effects of
??Hum." In his letter, he portrays skilfully
the pernicious infiuences which it has had on
those who unfortunately have become victims
to the bottle. We esteem him for such sonti
inonts, and hope that, while in his present ca
pacity, he may be tho mc:?u of doing infinite
good for the poor drunkard's family. T. S.
