reported in the published proceedings of their
last meeting, where it was said that he hai
m '..mated that there were no magistrate.-* in
tae second or third wards who Were competent
to the proper discharge of the duties ot police
magistrates. On the oontrary, he hai merely
supposed theexistence of such a state of things,
and made remarks upon what he thought
l?kely to be the public necessities in that ewe
He knew well that in the second ward there wac
a magistral (N. Cailan) competent to the
discharge of any duties whatever, that mi"ht
be confided to him. ?

oommitteo a bill fcr the relief of Francis
Hutchens; passed
Mr. Reed reported from the fire department
committee a bill to provide for tbo purohase
of oertain apparatus for the American Hook
and Ladder Company.
Mr Magruder moved to amend this bill by
adding an appropriation of $600 to purchase
apparatus for the Western Hose Company.
Mr M explained that the members of the
Westaru Hose Company had raised and ex
pended $^00 of their own money for the pur
chase of machinery at the North, and that;
they bid fair to make one of the most usetul
companies In Washington, Ac.
Mr. Clark opposed the amendment as likely
to delay the enjc:ment of the original bill -
smeadment agreed to?yeas 7, says 4-s? fol
lows:
?Ve**?Messrs Borrows, Dove, Fitipatrick,
M *g ruder, Pearson, Reed and Hill (President )
ays.?Messrs Clarke, Houston, Marks and
Pepper.
Mr Houston oppoeed the bill as amended, on
tie ground that it was taking too much money
?$1,000?from the city treasury.
Mr Pepper explained that he had voted
against amenameat only because its adop
tion, he thought, would delay the enactment
of the bill lor the Hook and Ladder Company.
He would gladly vote for the appropriation
em traced iu the amendment in a separate
bill. 1
Mr. Clark addreesed the board expressing
views on this bill similar to those of the last
?peaker. Both these speakers complained of
the indisposition of the insurers to provide a
rKirtion of the fire apparatus necessary for
Washington, and urging the propriety of hav
ing the corporation lasure property.
Mr. Borrows advocated itie idea mentioned
last above, on the ground that if the property*
holders gonorally know that they would be
taxed to make good the damage dene by ftre
here, they would be more active to put out and
prevent such conflagrations. The adoption of
the practice would (he explained how) prove
an insurance against the insuring of property
here above iu real value
Mr Hill explained his position on this in
formal proposi tion
Mr. Fitspatrick, after a few remarks, moved
to reconsider the vote by which the amend
ment had been agreed to.
Mr. Hill made a few remarks against the
tolicy of estaoliahing hose companies distinct
from the engine companies, and at the same
time complimented the Western Hose Corn
paey for its efficiency. He explained that
each separate hose company would cost the
corporation nearly as maon as what the cost
would be for the m tintenance of the double
company, if attached to and ocoupying part of
the house of an engine oompany
Mr. Fltapatrick again addressed the Board
in favor ot the position urged br Mr. Hill.
He was also for compelling the insurance com
panies to bear a portion of the expenae of the
fire apparatus and ?ystem of the city
Too debate on this amendment and bill was
further continued by Mr Pepper, who urged
that the insurance companies were perfect
Shylooks
Mr. Dove urged the necessity for making
the appropriation for the First Ward, proposed
by Mr. Magruder
Mr Magruder again advocated his amend
ment with great earnestnees, showing its expe
diency and necessity
The motion to reconsider having prevailed,
'ha quer ioa was again pat on Mr. Magruder's
amendment, It m again amd to: and aa
thus amended thia bill paased^^
Mr Fits patrick introduced a b01 making it
penal to aell bread nnder weight, and pro

Thb Ball Last Night?The ball of the
Marion Rifles last night, at Carusi's Saloon,
was a gloTioUs entertainment, beiDg one of
the best attended of the season. There were
aoy quantity of most interesting pretty girls
there, whose bright eyes, intelligent counten
ances and charming figures were admired by
all the gallant young men present. The ball
was duly opened at 9 p. m , with the hail
comfortably filled; in an hour it was crowded,
and the young folks were all engaged in the
merry dance. Among those present we per
ceived Capt Towers, Lieut Sutton, Lieut.
Tait, Lieut. Sheokell, Sergt. Egan. Sergt.
Buckingham, Corp'l Grimes, Corp'l Maguire,
and privatea C. W. Grimes, F. Johnson, and
F. Fister, of the National Greys; Messrs

landers; also, aeveral membera of the junior
companies All of these military gentlemen
appeared to fine advantage, indeed. Danoing
was kept up until a very late hour?until near
day light?when the guests retired, highly
delighted with their sight's entertainment.
Orphan's Court.?A case ia now occupying
the time and attention of thia oourt, and ia
likely to do so for aeveral days. Some years
since, Hon. H. May Administered on the
estates of Thomas and Edward Law, formerly
of Illinois, for the purpose of oarrying on a
suit in the cirouit ccurt of thia Distriot. A
branch of that suit has since been determined
in the Supreme Court of the United States.
A Mr. Rogers has come into the Orphans''
Court and asks to have Mr. May'a letters re
voked, on the ground that being a relative be
is entitled to the letters of aaminiatration.
Upon the queation of heirabip much testimony
has been and ia being examined The wifc
nessea are generally old reaidenta. Among
them are Maasrs Galea A Seaton, General
Weightman, and a number ot ladies Many
thouaands of dollara are inrolved, and the
iriginal owner, Mr Thomaa Law. (the grand
father of Thomaa and Edward,) formerly of thia
city, was the brother of Lord Ellanborough.
The oouncil for Mr. Rogera are T. Parkin
Scott, of Baltimore, and R. S. Cox, eaq ; and
for Mr May, R. J. Brent, eaq , of Baltimore
Thomaa Law was in India with Wanes
Hastings, and it has always been said in
Waahinaton that he waa aent to this country
to save Heatings, aa if he had been examined
in that celebrated trial hia teatimony would
have convicted him. The examination of wit
neasee waa continued to-day, inoluding the
identifieetion of handwriting, ete.
Thb ArpaoacHDiG Gbkat Salbi.?Thoeein
want of furniture are reminded that J. C.
McGuire ia now aellieg at auction, daily, the
atock of the late J. D. Brown, eompriaing
every article ef "furniture" to ba obtained in
cabinet ware rooms The atock ia equal in ita
variety and atyle to that of any eataolishment
in New York, being worth an aggregate of fif
teen to twenty thouaand dollara It ia thoug&t
that it wiil take the reat of thia week to get
through with it The articlea aell at moat en
ticing prices, indeed. Be sure to attend, if
you want anything in the way of furniture.
Mr. J. C McGuire also oommenoes. to-day,
the great Hall A Brother sale, in which quite
fifty thousand dollars' worth of dry goods are
to be disposed of in lots to suit the trade. It
is to be, by long odds, the moet important sale
of the kind ever ooourringin Washington, and
occupying some daya aa it probably will, it(
will, douotleaa, attract many merohanta hither
from the surrounding towns and country.
Librr Weight ?On Saturday evening last,
the police of the Third distriot seiaed about
forty loaves of bread, under weight, offered
for saio at the Northern Market. As fleer is
?elling very hixh, bakers make but little by
the old rates piis ia their own look out. The
law cf the corporation only regalatea the
wei?ht of the loavaa, not the price, whioh ia
left to the bakera. All bread under the legal
weisht, offered for aale, is liable to be eeiaad. {
Tn KvmaiL's Farbwrll ?To-night at
Odd Fellows* Hall these birds of song ring
thai! lMt lays, for this season at least, and to
?aj they will receive a bumper at parting,
we bat echo the with as wall aa the opinion
of the people of Washington Possess injrevsry
claim that talent and gentilitj oan give thote
who eater fbr the amotement of the pablie,
their raooett it always tare. This evening,
at Odd Fellows' Hall, let all remember, ooonrs
their last soiree.
To-morrow, Wednesday evening, they ap
pear at the-Nary Tard Hall.
A Bxllicosi Spirit.?Two white men.
named, respectively, John Ryan and Daniel
Reardon, were brought before Jnttioe Sofltta,
this morning, to antwer to the charge of fight
ing. They stripped themselves for the battle,
and, in the olatsioal language of a gentleman
tresent, "fought like ball dogs." They were
oth braised and bloody, presenting a tad
speetaolecf beings of bellicose pattiont and
practices. They were committed to jail, where
they will have an opportunity for reflection on
their eonduct.
Yesterday, two negroes were arrested for
striking a white man on the Island. Their
names are John F Ferguson and George Wil
son. The first named is from the North, and
expressed much indignation at his arrest,
loudly vociferating that he wts good as anv
white man, aooompanied by language whion
plainly evidenced that his associations bad
been of the most depraved character. Justice
8mith committed them to jail, but, on their
way to prison, they attacked the officer in
charge, Mr. Davidson, as we hare been in
formed; and at the jail exhibited suoh fighting
propensities that the keepers had to check
them. ' 'T
Jail.?Last night, a man under the influ
ence of liquor, attacked a lady who was walk
ing with her husband on the publio street.
The offioers being near interfered, and arrested
the offender, ana in order to convey him to
the guard house called a hack. Offioer Bar
naclo supposed that he would go without
treuble, got into the coach with bim alone
As soon as the vehicle started, the fellow seised
the officer and a tussle ensued that lasted un
til they reached the guard house door. The
fellow used his teeth like a cannibal, and the
officers hands are likely to bear evidenoe of
the desperate biting for weeks to come. As
soon as ne was brought out for trial, a colored
boy, also a prisoner, laughed at bim, when he
seised the boy and commerced beating him ;
hut the officers stopped his fun by ohaining
trie hands behind him. He is a German, gave
gave his name as Christoper Covansal, and
was sent to jail by Jutice Morsell.
The Corporation Tax Sals, commenced
on Monday, *fts continued, to-day by Collector
Roche in the room of the Board of Aldermen.
The attendance of bidders was net more than
one-fourth as large as that of yesterday. Not
withstanding, the sale was conducted with
spirit, and muoh money invested in city lots.
The collector, to meet the demands of an
imal appetite, had spread a table with such
solids as loafbread, crackers, cheese, and
ham, of *hich any one was at liberty to
partake t . J
Latu ?The train of cars due here a* seven
o'olock last night was detained considerably
past time by running over a cow that had got
on the track. This is the train that brings
the heavy mails to the city.
It was only a {ew nights since the express
train on the 3aH?more and Ohio Railroad was
thrown from the track, near Tunnolto*n Pta
tion, by running over a cow The mail trai*
over the same road was thrown from the track
and detained some hours by running into a,
tree that had fell across the roacUp
Pricbs OP Fisft.?Yes'erday, at the wharf
in Alexandria, shad were selling at 410 per
hundred, and herriDg at $8 per thousand. In
the centre market this morning, shad were
37i cents per pair, rook and perch 25 cents
per bunoh, and herring 12} cents per dosen.
This decline of the prices is evidenoe of an
increase in the supply, whifh will be hailed
with pleasure by all.
Abandoned.?The case of the young man
who was arrested under the minor law for
running with the fire apparatus, was aban
doned by the officer who made the arrest It
was proven to his satisfaction the young man
was over twenty-one years of age.
Slander Suit.?The case ofWm T. Dove,
against J. H McBlair, for alleged slander,
will, it is expected, be tried in the Circuit
Court during the present week.
Circuit Court?For several day! past
there baa been pending in this court a suit in
volving the freedom of three oolored persons,
but it is not yet decided.
Proprrty Sal*.?The house and ground
on ? street north, between Ninth and Tenth
streets, belong to the estate of the late Charles
Davis, was sold yesterday afternoon at public
aection, for the sum of $4,250, one of the
neighbors being the purchaser.
Union Guards.?A delegation of this fine
military corps, in full uniform, went to Balti
more in the five o'olock train yesterday after
noon, for the purpose of being present during
the night at a military ball in that city.
