Tiia Foikdrv Chubch?The corner-stone
or tbe new cburrh edifice to b? erected on tbe
site of tbe "Old Foundry," which was built in
1*16, was laid yesterday by the Masonic frater
nity. Tbe occasion drew fortn a lar.ee assem
blage of ladies laid gentlemen, among whom
we noticed some of tbe oldest Methodists in
Washington, and a number of ministers, among

merly in charge rf the Foundry;) Kev. Mr.
Thrush, of McKendree: Bev. Dr. Edwards, of
Imntarton street. Georgetown; Rev. Dr.Tus

fine affair, and will accommodate several hun
dred more persons than the old one, while it

and accomi anted by McKelvey's bind, at
tached to tbe Veteran Reserve Corps, stationed
in Alexandria. Tbe procession proceeded up
Pennsylvania avenue to G street, and tbence
to tbe site of the church, where the lines were
opened and tbe Grand Ledge gathered round
tbe stone, which, In compliance with the Ma
sonic requirements, was placed at the north
east corner of the founda'ion. The chaplain
of the Templars, Rav. H. N. Sipes, (of East
Washington M. E. Church,) offered an appro
priate pra>>r. which was fallowed by the Ma
sonic ode, "When earth's foundation first was
laid," snug by Messrs. Ball, Hodgson, Tabler,
S evs-d and" Sheriff, accompanied by Prof.
23.hell on the seraphine. The officers then ap
proached tbe stone, and, alter applying the

S , tbe Emamipation > roclamation, likeness

Grand Treasurer, C. Cammack, Sr., after which

Grand Master, J. E. Holmead, using the gav
el with which Washington had the corner stone j
of tbe Capitol, now the property of Potomac f
Lodge, No. 5, of Georgetown, pronounced tbe
stone to be "well formed, true and trusty."
Rev. Dr Ryan, tbe minister in charge of the ,
cburch made a bnef address complimenting
the order and thanking them for their work,
and also returned the thanks of the church to
tbeaud ence. The church had determined to
build tbis edifice and as it were they would
bave to build it with tbe trowel in one band
and tbe sword in tbeotber, bat they bid faith
that tbe Lord would succor them. He ap
pealed to tbe audience for pecuniary help and

quite a handsome sum.
Another ode was sung and the procession re

semblage dispersed.
A large and beautiful Ameican ilag was dis

The handsome design for this fine new
cburch edifice, was made by Messrs. Class and

Landlord a*d Tbsaht.-'Tuesday after
noon Justice Reaver, of George'own, "had be
fore bim tbe case of W. B. Latwlsle against
Mary Jane Burns?an action to recover pos
session of premises under the Ia'e law of Con
gress C M. Mathews appeared for plaintiff,
and J. Carter Marbury for defendant. This
case was brought under the third section of
the act, which provides that, at tbe expiration
of a tenancy, the owner has a right to bring an
action to recover the premises.
The first witness called was W. H. Godey,
who testified that he sold the premises recently
to the plaintiff; that tbe defendant bad occu
pied tbe bouse several years, and bad paid
him (Mr G.) monthly, but they liad no specific
bargain as to whether he was a monthly or
yearly tenant.
A Mr. Powers testified tbat he served the
notice, but could not testify that it was on tbe
day specified.
Mr Marbury argued tbat the tenancy was |
not sufficiently proved t j mstify a thirty days'
notice; that payment of rent by the month did
not imply that it was a monthly tenancy. Such
payments were often made for convenience;
and the service of the notice had not been prop
erly proved.
The Justice dismissed the case.
The following is tbe bill as it passed Cou
gress:
Tbat a tenancy at will shall not arise or be
created without an express contract of letting j
to that effect, and that all occupation, posses- j
?ion or holding of any messuage or real estate,
wubout express contract or lease, or by such
contract or lease the terms of which bave ex
pired, shall be deemed and held to he tenancies,
and all estates at will and sufferance, may be j
determined by a note in writing to quit of !
thirty davs, delivered to the tenant in hand, or
to some person of proper age upon th?- prem
ises, or in absence of such person or tenant,
then such notice may be served by affixing the
same to ? conspicuous part of tha premtses,
where it may be conveniently read. The at
tornment ol a tenant to a straneer shall be
Toid, and shall not effect the rights oi the
landlord, unless it be made with the consent,
e>pre?s or implied, of the landlord : Provided,
That vo part of this section o'her than that which
relates to attornment of a tenant to a stranger,
shall apply to contracts ma e or to an j tenancy ex
isting pnor to the pissage of this act, eccept in case
cf waste or refutixt to ply rent.
Sec. *>. That wlie e f orcb e entry is made, or
where a peaceable entry is made, and tbe pos
session unlawfully held by force, or where
po?sfssion is held without fight, after the es
tate is determine.d by fie terms of the lea-e by
its own limitation, or by notice to quit or other
tti'f , or written complaint on oatb of tbe pe?
toa enti led to the premises to a justice of the
peace charging a forcible entry or detainer
of real es ate, as a'oresaid, a summons
may b?- issued to a proper officer, commanding
the person complained ot to appear and show
caus" v by judgment should not be entered
against him. which shall be served like other
writs of summon?, at least seven days before
bis appearance. If it appear, by default or
upon trial, tbat tbe complainant is euti'led to
the possession ot tbe premises, be sball bave
jnil|tmi>iit and execution for thr poa?i-a?lnn and
costs. If tbe complainant becomes nonsuited
?nd (ail to prove hU right to possessi-m, tbe de.
tendant shall have judgment and execution for
bis costs.
Sec 3. Tha* IT upon trial defendant pleads

p-reon under whom be claims the premises, be

TQeni is tendered by a Justice of the peace ma v
appeai tr.m surh judgment to tbe Supreme
Court of the District of Columbia in tbe same
manner as appeals are taken to the said court
but in case of an appeal by a defendant, he
shall, in addition to the bail required in other
cases, recogin/e in a reasonable sum to the
complainant, to be fixed by said justice with
