EVENING STAR.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.
The Joist Committee on the conaolidation
of Washington End Georgetown met lest night
at the Citj Hall, and was called to order by
the president, Dr Miller.
After reading the journal, Mr. Tyler of
Georgetown, corrected an omission of the name
of Dr. Joshua Riley,'a member from George*
t)wn.
The President reported that the Washing*
ton committee would agree to the 1st tnd 2d
sections of the proposed basis, and the 3d see
tion with the exception of the words, " forf
the purpose of paying the principal and in
terest of said dent," x'of Washington) end all
the remainder except the 7th scction which
they propose to strike out. It is as follow? :
44 The present western or Virginia channel of
the Potomac is not to be altered or any way
affected, except by the people resident in the
aforesaid two new wards, or by a majority of
their representatives in each of the branches
of the Corporation of Washington "
Mr. Tyler asked if the 7tb section could be
amended to meet the views of the Washington
committee
Mr. Miller said that he thought it would be
best to leave the entire section out, and let the
subject remain for the future action of Con*
gresa.
Mr Ould said that in preparing that basis
they had purposely avoided mentioning the
bridge in that section All that Georgetown
asked was that the natural outlet for their
trade should be preserved. If a majority of
the citizens asked for an improvement of the
channel, be had no objection, but he wished to
prevent any corporate action in future by
which the people of Georgetown would be
obliged to submit to such alteration whether
they were for or against it.
Mr Smith said that the question with him
was, does not the section permit the two wards
to control the seven in regard to this matter ?
lie certainly eould not yield to this. And,
further, the section implied a desire on the
part of W ashington to alter the Virginia chan
nel, and that he would not admit. He could
not see the necessity for the seventh section.
Mr. Ould explained that the alteration of
the channel was not a supposed case. There
was now on the files of Congress a proposition
to oonstruct a wall from Mason's Inland to
wards the Maryland shore to divert the water
from the Virginia channel.
Mr. Smith stated his objeot to be to secure
the interests of the consolidated city to make
the interest of both identical
Mr. Ould said, give us the power over that
channel which we have, and you may retain
all the rest. We only wish to prevent corpo
rate action without tho consent of the two
new wards.
Mr. Smith was not willing to permit the
minority to rule the majority, but he would
stand for the interests of Georgetown.
Dr Tyler did not think the proposition of
Georgetown unreasonable. Georgetown has
an influence with Congress, inasmuch as their
people could make out a good ca^e, the chan
nel being the outlet for tho commercc of
Georgetown. If annexation be not consum
mated it may be that she will go back to " old
mother Maryland ;" and it would be difficult
to affect the channel then.
Dr. Miller said the consolidation would
sweep away all antagonistic interests, as his
friend |Mr. Smith] had said The peop'e
would be interested in the protectioncf George
town interest*
Mr. Smith said, if the seventh section were
retained, be would ask to add the fulhwing
two aeclions:
" 11. The present site of the Long Bridge is
not to be changed, or in any manncer affected,
(except aa hereinafter provided,) unless by
the consent of a majority of the seven old
wards ; but, on the contrary, every effort will
be made by the entire consolidation to pro
cure the erection of a permanent structure on
the present sito of ?he Long Bridge.
*? 12 That it shall be the interest, as well
as the duty, of the consolidation, as far as
practicable, to keep open the channel on the
Washington city side of the Potomac, and;
with that view, to advocate and procure the
passage of a law erecting a sea wall along the
entire line of the Potomac, from the extreme
west front of Monument Square to the ex
treme east front of the arsenal."
Mr Towles explained the causes of the
filling up of the river and the action of the
three channels He urged that the time would
soon arrive when the alteration of the channel
would be desired by Georgetown and W ash
ington. and saw no reason why any obstruc
tion should be placed in the way of easy leg
islation.
The argument was continued by Messrs.
Ould, Abert, Tyler and Smith.
Mr Ould proposed the following as a sub
stitute for the 7th section: "There shall be re
served to the people of Georgetown or to a
majority of their representatives in the cor
poration of Washington, the same power of
resistance, remonstrance, and protest to auy
change or alteration in, or obstruction to the
present western or Virginia channel as is now
possessed by the corporation of Washington."
The discussion upon the substitute was con
tinued until 10 o'clock, when Mr Smith offer
el the following :
Whereas, Tho committee of Washington
cannot accept th* basis with the 7th section
or substitute, and that as the committee from
Georgetown have refused the consolidating
without said 7th section or its substitute
Therefore,
KesolveJ, That when this committee ad
journ it adjourn sine die.
Mr Tyler aross and said that although it
was a matter of regret that the annexation
could not be consummated, the committee had
nothing else to regret They had met as
neighbors in the moat friendly manner, and
haa mutually received information which
would be beneficial to them hereafter, and they
could now separate as they had met, as warm
friends, without angry feeling
The resolution was adopted
On motion of Mr Ould, it was ordered that
the clerk ahould be paid So and the the ucs
s.nger 92 per night for their services.
Mr. Tyler stated that Mr David English had
been absent from the meetings of the com
mi'tee on account of ill health.
On motion, the joint committee adjourned
sine die
Chestsits ?The Norfolk Argus states that
in the seaboard counties the chestnuts are
ripening and opening fast. Many of the trees
are very full, and Die boys and girls, squir
rels and darkies, have already commenced to
gather them. The trees grow to a very large
*ize A gentleman recently obtained 500
fence rails from a single tree The wood will
not answer for fuel on account of the constant
-napping, cracking and sparkling whila burn
ing The fences made of chestnut rails are
very valuable, as they do not decay for near
ly half a century Cutting down the trees
greatly increases the growth, aa from 3 to 7 er
ft will spring up and grow rapidly from the
roots of the parent tree. This tree does not
irow in the vicinity of Norfolk; but thrives
nely in the upper counties of Virginia, and
in many parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania
In the mountainous district* of North Caro
lina, alao, it may be found flourishing.
Judging from the appearance of the trees in
the vicinity of Washington and from the large
quantities <>n sile in the city markets, the
ci est out crop in this part of the county 14 an
abundant one this year
Parrv Larcbxies.?Within a few days, we
have heard numerous complaints from variou*
ci-liens of larcenies of harness, axes, an 1
other articles usually left in stables, wood
houses Ac The perpetrators are seldom de
tected, and when caught escape punishment
thr ugh the lenience of those they have
robbed- It is now more necessary than ever
tha? owners of property ahould make their
ttible* and woodshed* safe The same in
ducement* are not (ffcred at this time to arrest
r (fenders that were offered a year ago, and
citizens should be cartful that their property
is secure from the inroads of petty thieves
Gives Bail.?Messrs. Samuel Strong and
Robert Strong gave bail this morning m the
sum of $900 each to appear at the Criminal
Court, lo answer the charge of assault and
battery on John M Smith and J P Tims on
Tuesday night Mr S Strong was arrested'
by Officer Wataon and taken before Justice
Donn. who required him to give the bail, and
he then gave bail for his brotberand pr< miaed
to biinK hint before the J usii?;e to acknowledge
the bond.
The Death or Yocno TaEOor?The fol
lowing is an extract from the article in the
Baltimore Clipper of Tuesday last, which de
?olved on us what wa regarded to be a duty to
criticise it as it was criticised on the same
day in the Star :
"Death of Young Tkroop?Nathan II.
Throop, the victim of a depraved and big
gotted mob of Irish, died at the residence of
officer James Morgan, No 85 Rom street, at
Iaarter past eight o'clock yesterday morning,
t will be recollected that this young man, but
little over nineteen years of age. was standing
quietly in the neighborhood of Mount Vernon
Place on' election day, when the Irish, with
all the fury of their illiterate and demon
hearted race, rushed up the street, and find
ing nothing mora formidable to heap their
vengeance upon, one of them fired at bim,
and he fell wounded in the leg Whilst in
this helpless condition?a condition which
would excite the oommisseration of any man
with the least spark of human kindness in his
breast?another Irishman approached, and,
placing his musket within a few feet of him,
fired a slag into his brain, and, as he fell over
upon the pavement, the Irishman pierced him
through the arm with the bayonet attached to
his musket, and riflad bis pockets of all the
money they contained. There were five bul
lets in different parts of his body. It seems
too shocking for contemplation. A young and
promising American shot down in the streets
of his country by a band of transported and
beggarly foreigners, and whilst gasping from
the effects of his fatal wounds to be robbed.
This murder is almost without a parallel in
heinouaneM."
This article, embraced as will be perceived,
sweeping and unjustifiable charges against a
large and worthy class of our fellow-citiiens,
as well as false statements as to the circum
stances under which the unfortunate yoath re
ceived hit death wound.
This morning, we are informed by a citisen
of well known character and deserved influ
ence, that the unfortunate youth had for the
last two years been almost immediately under
his eye, and had given, so far as he could per
ceive, every promise of making a useful citi
sen, notwithstanding his more youthful ab
be rations. We publish the fact with more
true pleasure than we can express, because
though impelled by what we thought to be a
grave duty to the public involved on us, our
sympathy with the parents of the deceased
was and is as active and sincere aa that of any
man in this community.
We deplore that the unfortunate youth failed
to be guided by what we learn to have been
the earnest advice of his elder brother given
on the morning of the sad affair, to keep away
from the scene of the contest.
Family Jars.?Yesterday, a couple of good
looking young married ladies went before Jus
tice Donn to testify in a case where the hus
band of one had laid hands on and abused the
other. One was galled to give evidence, when
both began talking so fadt that the Justice
could hardly slip in a word edgeways. The
Justice and constable both demanded order,
but the females were now under full head of
steam, and either could not or would not hold
up till his honor rose and expressed in unmis
takable tones his determination to have order.
The case was heard at last, and it appeared
that the difficulty arose from some wood having
been placed in a position by ono of the women
to raise the ire of the husband of the other,
who accordingly seized his fair neighbor by
the hair and called her a highly improper
name This was an assault in the eye of the
law, and the Justice, after expressing a hope
that they would be able to seUle their little
difficulties in future with less trouble, hold the
accused to security to keep the peace
National Theatre ?A more satisfactory
performance than that of the Keeno company
at the National, last night, cannot well be
imagined. We regret that the unprecedented
political excitement prevailing last night, to
gether with the expected arrival of the Pres
ident, caused a thinner house than the merits
of the company deserved
To-night, another excellent bill is offered.
See advertisement.
Arrested.?The eolored man. Win. Fen
nail, who so horribly maimed another named
Butler some days since, was captured last
nignt by Watchman Norwood. Fennall is a
slave, and we are informed that his owner in
tends to sell him
Ckbtre Market.?The supply in the mar
ket this morning was smaller than usual, but
there was no change in prices worth mention
ing The weather was cool, and the country
dealers were occupying rather unpleasant po
sitions.
Watch Returns.?During the night the
cells were occupied by lodgers, most of them
from abroad. There is but little disturbance
at night and the Auxiliary Guards report the
city unusually quiet.
GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE.
Georgetown, Oct. 16, 1858.
The additional news in the morning papers
from the election in Pennsylvania, has served
to increase the excitement which has pervaded
our city for the last twenty-four hours.
We are informed that the quantity of water
upon the upper levels of the canal, is improv
ing, and that boats with a full cargo are again,
by dint of good management, enabled to pass
the most difficult points. Quite a number of
boats from Cumberland and other points have
arrived during the last twenty-four hours
Among the private improvements which
have been made in our city this season, we
notioe a very handsome one (first class frame
dwelling) on Fayette street, in what is known
as Bryantown, by our fellow-oitisen Profassor
Schadd. It is really an ornament to the lo
cality in which it is situated We discover
that the antiquated front of Messrs. Welch ?l
Wilson, on Bridge street, has also been super
seded by one of the most handsome modern
fronts to be found ou the street.
No change in the markets since our last.
