The Board then adjoured. Thk Oas MovoroLT?Mr. Editor: Many just complaints are made against the company supplying this city with gas on account of the bign price charged for it, and of the inferior gas famished us. My gas bill for October was $2 80, and although I burned no more gas, my bill for November was S7 20 Anx ious to know what could have produced this difference, I inquired and found out, that ga* made of coal will hnrn twice as long as that made from rorin. and the latter will give n*t more than half the light of the former This solved tho mystery We pay more for ga? than any other city in the Union, and we allow ourselves to be imposed upon by any * kind of gas the company cho?e to furnish, and we must pay m ten days, or have the gat shut r.ff. Was there ever such a monopoly suffered elsewhere Yet where is the remedy' I say let a new company be formed ; let the Corpo ration supply gas a* they do in Philadelphia whoee it cost? about hslf of what we pay for it Or let a City Inspector be appointed to tee that good materials be used The poor country woman forfeits her prints of butter of if they are a grain below weight; the baker the same, and every thing except gas has to be weighod. measured or inxpectod. Qas is imposed open us at any price the company may please and we must quietly submit toit. All the meters in our part of the city weie froten because the company put them up without liquor in them, and each family was put to the expense of two to four dollars to thaw them and fill them with spirits. I say u ia high time to put an end to this monopoly. *?? 4 Habitual Accuracy " ?'1 Mercury" says ia yesterday's Baltimore Sun, in describing the funeral obsequies of Commodore Morris that " the approach of the procession to the Congressional Cemetry was announced by the firiri of minute guns at the Navy Yard," which would have been very correct only that Commodore M. was buried in Georgetown instead of at the Concessional Cemetery. However, he was within four miles of the tratb Mors Sport.?We hear that some fast horses have been brought on from Baltimore to take part in the Corporation race* this after t? reoon ; so Moscow, Teal, Old Snaffle, Poor ?

By the way, gentlemen, it is whispered about that the offi cers are on the look out to day, and that the fi?e dollar fine will be levied upon all offen ders However, it is not supposed you will mind suqh a trifle as that. XaTio*AL Thbatrk ?Our realers will not forget that Mr H Fairelough makes his first ?ppearance before a Washington audience this evening. In the northern cities, his per formances have !>#en highly praised, and we doubt not that the admirers of the legitimate drama will enjoy this evening's performance. Haniioifr Hall was last night tbe scene of festive enjoyment, as the Ben Franklin Tar gel Company gave one of their (topular cotil lon parties which was well attended. We learn that this corps intends 44 doing the hoa ' rs" to a target company from Philadelphia, which is expected here. Tub Boo* Clc? hud a pleasant fancy ball '**t night, at the Washington Assembly rooms ? E??ry one present appeared to enjoy them selves, and the witticisms of "Mote" were capital. Fight.?We hear that yesterday afternoon, shortly after the House adjourned, the Hon Mr. Rust, of Arkabsas. (who was in the com-, panjr of. Messrs. Bocock, of Virginia, and tliwrww)d, of Arkansas,) wA* overtaken in the Capitol (irounds by the Hon. Horace (Jreeley, of the New York Tribune, who. in that journal of Monday last, hud published a letter over his initial*, in which ho had re ferred to Mr Rust in the following terms "I hare had some acquaintance with hu man degradation . jet it did seem to me to day that Rust's resolution in the H<>use was a more discreditable proposition than I had ever known gravely submitted to a legislative bodv." . Mr R. thereupon stepped np to Mr. Gree ley, who was walking between two friend*, and accompanied by more, and taking him by the lapel of his eoat, remarked to him, "You are anon-combatant' Mr Greeley replied that he did not know. Mr. R. then asked him whether he would resent an insult? To this Mr Greeley replied, "Well, I don't know." Mr. Rust then slapped Mr. Greeley with his open hand, and the latter returning the blow, received several blows from Mr. Rust before the bystanders could stop the collision. After they wcro separated, Mr. Mr. Greeley repeatedly said he "did not know that man, ere Mr. Rust moved down the Avenue. He was subsequently again overtaken by Mr. Greeley, who, as he was pausing within a foot or two of Mr R., the latter, on his approach so near, asked him, " Do you know me now He replied " Yes; 1 understand your name is Rust, and you have treated me very ungentlemanly." Upon those words being uttered, Mr. R. struck at him a blow with a stick, which being parried with Mr Greeley's arm, was shivered (the stick) by the blow Some of those with Mr. Greeley protested that he was not a fighting man, when he replied that he "did not shelter him self behind that plea." Mr. Rust approached him again, when Mr. Greeley said tnat " ho bad nothing to fight with."' Mr. R. then said ?'Get something, sir." Mr. G. rejoined, ?'No, I don't (or won't) fight." Mr. Rust then left him. We understand from a gentleman to whom Mr. R. communicated his purpose, origi nally, that be stopped Mr. Groeley to remon strate with him against making iusulting com ment# on him. (Mr. R ,) while he was a pro fessed non-combatant, and that he was induced to make the assault, by what he regarded in Mr. Greeley's answers as an intimation that be was ready and willing to repel any attack that might be made on him. We hear that the blow on the arm with the stick, bruised and lamed it very sevorely, and that one of Mr R 's blows on the back of Mr Greeley's head, with his fist was, also, very ?evcre in its effects. We abstain from making commcnt* on this affair, merely presenting the public with an account of it derived from a gentle man who witnessed it from first to last. Mas. Ordway was very much scandalized yesterday, by what she deemed a very irreve rent expression made by a oockney Englishman (now resident in Washington) who asked at the Star counter, to have the paper left at his hou?e " on Seventh street, between H?1 and M." The " Britisher" meant to say between L and M, no doubt, but did not seem aware of the glaring impropriety of "exasperating" the "H" in pronouncing the : L."
