RK4LLY,one of the most beautiful specimens of workmanship in the jewelry line we have seen of late is a crown mariuCartured at the e* uMWhment of Mr II Semken,330 Pennsylvania a rem re, and which whs ordered for the Grand Tournament hall in Piecatawav. on the 19th of .November. The knlgbt who is the victor re ceives It, and crowds his lady with it. It is made of solid eighteen-carat gold, and Is sur moulded by a golden star, in the centre of which |lisl*w a diamond of '* purest ray serene." - This beautiful affair can be seen at the store of Mr f*~mkea. ?? Ctacciy CuCkT ?The hearing of the evidence la the of Joaet r< Dennett was closed yes terday: and his mom tug Mr. Robert J. U ent. for defence, is making a prayer to the Court fo> instructions es to the law la the case The argu ments oa both sides are expected to lie lengthy. Potne of the moat talented members of the bar are engagtd on each aide, and there will no doubt be a masterly atiuggle ioi Uw ownership of the ia qwstloa sttoftg northwest breeze prevailed on therleer, of which Captains of various vessels at the wbarves ware taking advaatage to clear a Tho coal a?wop begins to draw to a close, and the yard* of the several dealers show a plentiful supply of the nrnwary article of fuel, both veg e table and mineral, w domatlr consumption during the coming wfnter. The price* are rea sonable too, a great blessing to those whose means are too limited for high rates. An exciting race came off this morning be tween two rival long boat*, named the "F.ye Openor" and the "Wooden World." The occa sion was the opening of the pastern draw of the Long Bridge, through which both vessels were to pass, and the two having a fhlr start from the mouth of the Caual, crowded on all their canvas, and the struggle commenced, the cLaae being con ducted with great nautical skill on the part of both commanders, one white and the other col ored. The Wooden World went through the draw first amid the loud applause of the crowd of spectators on the bridge; and Captain S returned thanks to the compliment paid him in a neat flying reply, composed principally of ges ticulations, wholly uaintelligible to the audi ence. The steamer Baltimore was detained last night on her down trip at the half way tree by grazing a downward bound schooner. She. however, made her trip in good time, and arrived up on her return about the usual hour. The damage sustained by her was not sufficient to render any great repairs necessary. She will make her regu lar trip this evening as usual. Oysters.~Soine time since we remarked that the oysters now brought to this market are Infinite ly superior to those ever before sold here. Subse quent experience with them has satisfied us of tbe fact more firmly. A day or two since we weighed them, by the gallon, and find that they cost about four cents less per pound than good cuts of beef In the market. \\ here the house keeper buys them by the bushel, and has th^m shucked at home, they cost not more per pound than half the average cost of good oeef. We throw out the foregoiug hints for the benefit of those who would enj >y the good things of this life, and yet economize. I?*st night, we enjoyed a dozen roasted oysters at Benter's, on C street, (in the rear of Brown's Hotel,) which, take them all In all, were never surpassed in New York. We paid for them, with tbe accoutrementa,25cerits?about one-third a* much as we have invariably paid for oysters of like size and flavor in N-w Yora?Saddle Rocks. Tbe dozen, uncooked, would have weighed more than a pound. The explanation of the remarkable excellence of the oysteis be/c this reason is, that the '* bed din::" of the last two or three years for this mar ket ha* just come fairly into use If one doubts the fact, let him pav our old friend Bent >r ? visit, for practical proof. He knows how to set an oyster table. to a charm. The Cextrk Market opened this morning with but a slim attendance of country dealers.

B. Latta A Co., to furnish the city of Washington with a steam fire-engine was com municated to the Councils last night hy the Mayor. The proposal is to furnish this city vfith a steam flre-entflne of tbe third class, complete, for the sum of $fi,50?. Tbe apparatus to be capa ble of generating steam in five minutes; and will throw a stream of water I \ inches in diameter 200 feet horizontally, or two ^-inch streams 175 feet. The machine is to be drawn bv two horses. Tbe manufacturers agree to keep the whole in order one year. They say they can show a great saving of property by their new arrangement in Cincinnati, Ohio, sufficient to support six such fire departments as they bad, beside-* destroying the moral influence wblc's naturally arise from the present system. Tbe entire expenses will be from S3.5<N) to #4,000 per year. Such an engiue as they propose will be capable of doing the work of th ree hand engines. ?t No Man Gus:?ixq F.xrEMTtoxs ?The bill In relation to deadly weapons, passed by the City Councils and signed by tbe Mayor, Is as follows: Ax Act to prevent the carrying of dangerojs weapons in Washington City. B' it tnacttJ. |"c., That it shall not hereafter be lawful for any person or persons to carry or have about their persons any deadly or danger ous weapons, such as dagger, pistol, bowleknife, dirk-knife or dirk, colt, slung-shot or brass or other metal knuckle* within the city of Wash ington; and any person or persons who shall l>e dirty convicted of so carrying or having on their persons any such weapon shall forfeit and pay upon such conviction not less than tweu'y dol lars nor more than fifty dollars; which flu s shall lie prosecuted and recovered in tbe same manner as other peualties and forfeitures accruing to the city are sued for and recovered; provided that the police officer*, tbe member* of the auxiliary guard and the military, when on duty, snail be exempt from such penalties and forfeitures. Tri P?<>posxn I.aw.?Mr. Brown, In the Common Council last night introduced a bill (which was made the special order for Monday next) to regulate the weight and the quality of bread. ? ? Section 1 re?fnires bread to be sold by weight, esch loaf to wejj/b not less than 16 or more than 18 ounces; and the sales in all cases to be reck oned in the Tnited State* currency. Section 2 requires all deale>? in' bread to keen legal scales or weights, and to weigh out all bread to their customers on delivery. ?*ection J reouires bread to be composed-of the l?est quality or pnre sweet superfine flour, free from all adulterating ingredients. Section 4 makes it the duty of the clerks of tbe markets and of police officers to enforce the law. and provide* that bread forfeited under it shall be sent to the alms bouse. Section 5 designates fines at not less than five or more than ten dollars for violating the law. Uanecessart Alab*.?Last night, tbe report of a number of pistols near the Railroad, caused a rumor that a riot had taken place in that vicin ity 1'pon application to tbe officers, a strong posse of wh'un had been stationed in that neigh borhood. we learned tbat a compaay of German Amateur Thespians were performing in a saloon near that point; and, in tbe course of one of the pieces, several pistols were fired, which caused the alarm. It was also said that a riotous gang had visited the Se'-ond Ward list night, and wereconsulting abwut a display of their rowdy powers. The best authority assures us tbat no Hitch demonstration w u? me?le. ?? The Pibat Cases under the law against carry ing deadly weapons, came off this morning at tbe central guard-house. Two colored men named Smallwood and Brown were arrested for dlsor de?ly and p'ofane language in the streets. When they were Uken to tbe guard-bouse It was dis covered that each w;*s armed with a pistol, but tbev Iteln^ of that class of persons unable to pay the heavy penalty of the law, were only fined *20 and costs each. They of course lose the weapons. This prompt enforcement of the law has been bailed with the liveliest satisfaction, as giving promise ol a better state of things.
