Persons c/ pedentary babita troubled with weah
ltw isMitod*. palpitation of the heart, lack ?
appetite, diatreaa after eatiag, tor*id liver, aon
ttipetfon, Ac., deserve to auffer if they will not
try the celebrated
PLANTATION BITTERS,
which are bow recommended by the highest medi
cal authorities, and warranted to produce an im
midiatt beneficial effect. They are exceedingly
I
agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all
other tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant is
required.
Tb?y purify, atrengten and invigorate,
Tbey create a healthy appetite.
They are an antidote to a change of water and
diet.
They overcome effeeta of dissipation and late
hours.
Thoy strengthen the system and enliven the
wind.
They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers
Tbey purify the breath and acidity of the
stomach.
They cure Dyspepsia and Constipation,
They enre Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera
Morbus,
They cure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head
aebf.
They make the veak strong, the languid bril
liant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer.
They are composed of the celebrated Calinaya
bark, wintergreen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all
preserved in perfectly pare St. Croix rum. For
particulars, see circulars and testimonials around
each bottle.
Beware of imposters. Examine every bottle,
gee that it has D. 8. Barnes' signature on our pri
vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation
scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate
engraving on side label. 8ee that our bottle is not
refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy
any person to match the taste or character of our
goods. Any person pretending to sell Plantation
Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an impostor*
We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person
imitating this bottle, or selling any other material
therein, whether called PlantationJBitters or not,
is a criminal under the U. 8. Law, and will be so
prosecuted by us. We already have our eye on two
parties re-filling our bottles, Ac., who will succeed
in getting themselves into close quarters. The
demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies,
clergymen, merchants, Ac., is perfectly Incredible.
The simple trial of a bottle is the evidence we pre
?ent of thoir worth and superioritv. They are sold
by all rtFpectable druggists, grocers, physicians,
hotels, saloons, steamboats and country stores.

Mr. Pepper opposed the passage of the reso

He did,, not believe any body of men had a
right to say how a man sliould employ his
leisure on the Sabbath, or stop him from
traveling on that day, or from going away from
the city.
Mr. McCathran spoke of the excursions on
Sunday last, and wanted to know who was to
blame for this desecration of the Sabbath, and
who had the authority to put an end to it. He
did not wish to prevent any one from leaving
the city. His resolution did not contemplate
that, but he did not think it was proper to al
low these excursions to start out by steam or
rail. He wanted to know who could prevent
it. If we had the authority to stop it he want
ed to know it, and if tbe Board was blameable,
let tbe blame rest upon it. He, for one, did not
wish to remain ignorant of his duty in the
premises. If he was to blam9 he had to ans
wer to bis constituents, and he believed the
Councils had a right to prevent steamers going
out on the Sabbath day. As lor the blue laws
of Connecticut, be did not wish to Introduce
them here, but he did think a proper respect
should be paid the Sabbath.
Mr. Pepper said he had been much edified by
tbe Alderman's remarks, but be did not believe
in tbe right of any oiie to say where he should
go on the Sabbath day. It was a perfect hum
bug to pass laws of this character for they
could not be enforced. He was out upon the
psalm einglng, hypocritical canting people
who insisted upon marking out a line of con
duct to be observed on the Sabbath. He denied
tbe right of any one to Bay be should go to
church unless he chose to do so. He remem
bered when he was younger tbere was a class
of young men who were models of propriety
and always at their places (apparently) In
church. But he had known them to sit about
in a grog shop until the hour for church to
leave out, when they would hurry to line the
curb-stones and people would say: what
models those young men are ? always at
church.
Mr. Gulick? Where were yon at such
times 1
Mr. Pepper.?In the grog shop with them;
| laughter] but no one ever gave me credit for
church going.
Tbe resolution failed to pass, the vote stand
ing five to four.
The Common Council bill to regulate the
weight of bay, straw, Ac.; and the bill making
appropriation lor the general and contingent
expenses tor the year ending June, 11865, were

Resolutions of respect to the memory of
Robert T. Knight, a member of tbe last Board
of Common Council, were then adopted and
the Board adjourned.

members present except Messrs. Dudley, Kel
ly, Skirving, Wilson and Walker.
A communication was received from the
Mayor, announcing his approval of the follow
ing acts: Imposing taxes for the year 1864; for
placing a flag center in the gntter on the north
side of Massachusetts avenue, from 9th to loth
streets west; for the improvement of gutters
on the north side of H street north, from 11th
to 13th streets, and on G street north, from loth
to 12th streets; for repair of alley in Square

stone and cause tbe paving footway on the
west side of 9th street west, from N to O streets;
to set curb and cause footway to be paved on

dermen Relief of Newman A Bro.; referred.
To grade and gravel Maryland avenue, from
1st to 2d east; passed. To trim and gravel B

ondary and one primary; referred.
The annual appropriation bill was taken up
a> the special order, and alter some few
amendments bad been made it was passed.
Tbe bill reported by Mr. Kelly at a former
meeting to Increase tbe fees allowed to weigh
ers of bay, straw, See., was taken up, and Mr.
Lamer moved an amendment making tbe bill
incperatlTe daring tbe present year. He ar
gued tbat it wonld be unjust to increase com
pensation at tbis time, as had it been known
tbat tbe prices were to be increased the prices
obtained at tbe secent sale would have been
better.
Tbe amendment was lost, and tbe bill was
passed.
The bill providing for the removal of the re
mains of Major Charles L. Enfant, and the
erection of a monument to his remains was
called up, and, on motion of Mr. Peugh, it was
(aid over for one week.
A communication was received from the
Commissioners of the Asylum, submitting for
tbe approval ot the Board the following reso
lution adopted at the meeting on the 3d in
stant:
Resolved, That all females, inmates of tbe
Poor House, afllicted with venereal disease,
sball be subjected to a weekly board ot 95;
all unable or unwilling to pay said board,
sball be required to give tbe name or names
of the keeper or keepers of the house or
houses at which they boarded, and if said
keeper or keepers fail to pay said board, they
shall be reported to tbe grand jury as keeping
disreputable houses.
Referred to the Asylum committee.
Mr. Moore called the attention of the Board
to the fact that at the last ixeeting a resolution
was passed calling on the Register for infor
mation as to the state of the finances, and no
anwer had been received. He thought that
more attention should be paid to such requests,
and would suggest that the Secretary keep a
record of such calls as were made.
Tbe bill to place a gravel footway on 1st
street west, from B street to Indiana avenue,
reported upon adversely by the committee on
improvements, was taken up, and tbe commit
tee discharged.
The bill amending the act organizing the
Paid Fire Department was taken up, and
Mr. Wright suggested tbat the salary of S(V*0
to the tillermau be stricken oat, and insert
?250. He referred to Mr. Peabody's communi
cation, in which be Btates tbat it is not neces
sary for a hook and ladder company to be tbe
first on tbe ground; that the pulling down of
bouses was the last resort; and therefore it
was not necessary for a tiller man to be always
on duty. He moved that tbe vote by which the
salary was fixed at 8000 be reconsidered. Car.
ried.
Mr. Marche, with all due respect to Mr.
Peabody's opinions, believed thafca book and
ladder company could do as much service as
an engine company. The ladders were used to
assist tbe hose companies, and the hook and
ladder companies had hitherto done much ser
vice in saving life and property.
Mr. Lamer argued that the tillerman was as
necessary as tbe hostler: if these officers were
at the engine the truck could run and the
members might meet the apparatus at the fire.
The question was taken on the amendment,
and it was lost?veas 2, nays 13.
On motion of Mr. Edmonston, the bill was
laid ever until next meeting.
Mr. Marche introduced a resolution author
izing tbe sub-Board of School Trustees of the
Third District to sell the school building on the
comer of 3d street east and D street south, and
erect a frame building on its site; which was
referred.
Mr. Peugh asked that the bill from tbe Alder
men, to pave the carriageway on the north
front of square '284, be taken up.
Aiter some discussion it was laid over.
Adjourned.
Atfaibh ik OBOKQKTowTf.?Sunday, a par
ty of drunken men from Arlington" Heights
paid a visit to Georgetown, nnd created con
siderable disturbance in the most frequented
part of the town. The police succeeded in ar
resting the party?James McKey, M. T. Cline,
and Daniel Knight?each of whom was fined
S10.?.r) by Justice Bnckey.
A Rottgh Customer.?Michael O'Connell was
arrested by Officer Lipscomb for disorderly
conduct. On the way to the station-house, the
officer not observing his prisoner carefully, re
ceived a severe blow from him, which laid tbe
officer senseless in the street. Shortly after,
O'Connell was re-arrested and taken to the
station by Officer Thomas. He tried to beat
Officer Thomas, but failed, the officer apply,
ing his club with good eifect. O'Connell was
fined ?10 for disorderly conduct, and held to
bail for court for the assault
^Disturbing the Street Cars. ? Timothy Shea
?id Daniel Conner, from the Navy Yard, cre
ated a disturbance in a street car, being drunk.
Tbe conductor tried to get them out, and fail
ing, called policemen Boreman and Cunning
ham. They resisted and fought tbe officers,
but were secured and fined each 95 by Justice
Buckey. These disturbances are unusual in
Georgetown on the Sabbath.
The Military Department.?Major R. M. Littler,
(formerly of the 2d Iowa regiment,) Assistant
Provost Marshal, and commandant of Forrest
Hall Prison, is putting things in good condition
in bis department. The powers of the position
are more extensive than those ol former officers
in charge there. The office of tbe Assistant
Provost Marshal is located at the comer of
High and Prospect streets, and is well arranged
for the purposeb intended. The Forrest Hall
Prison, the receptacle or bounty jumpers, de
serter* and stragglers, and other military hard
cases, also in charge of Major Littler, receives
his particular attention. The Pest Adjutant,
Lieut. S. C. Davis, of the Warren County
Kifles, has bis office there as executive officer.
Major Littler has established a day and night
patrol of infantry and cavalry, with a deter
mination of strictly enforcing tbe orders of the
department to which he belongs, and the bene
fits arising from the energy with which this
new arrangement is carried out, begins already
to be seen and felt. The town is cleared ot
I stragglers and disorderly soldiers, and the
police will have the benefit of efficient aid
whenever required. As the orders of the pat
rols are very strict, enlisted men should be
sure to secure passes before visiting George
town.
The streets of Georgetown are undergoing a
decided improvement, a large company of con
trabands are employed in removing the dirt
and filth from the carriage ways, and under
the command of Capt. D. C. James, they will
succeed in thoroughly cleansing the main
streets.
A Bit op Romaics.?Yesterday morning, a
sailor, named Wm. Coleman, belonging to the
steamer Don, entered the agency office of John
F. Callan, Esq.. near the Bank of Washington,
in company with a young lady, and asked for
a minister or other party qualified to unite
them in the bonds of matrimony. Mr. Callan,
seeing tbe fix the tar was in, Immediately lent
him all the assistance in his power by sending
for the Rev.~U. Ward, who has an office in the
building, and giving them the use of the office
in which to celebrate the nuptials, and in a
short time Mr. W. appeared, and the twain
' were made one according to the rites of the
Methodist Protestant Church. After receiving
the congratulations of those assembled, and
securing the certificate, the parties left the
office, at peace "with all the wcrld and the
rest of mankind."
The bride Is Miss Catherine Watson, of Cleve
land, Illinois, and we understand her parents
are in good circumstances. The groom says
that they have known each other from their
youth up. Coleman entered the navy two
years since, and during this period has kept up
a correspondence witb the lady, who about
nine months since went to New York to see
him. He then took her home to her parents,
and told her to wait until he had served out his
time, when he would make all right; but it
appears that the lady thought the time was too
long, and came here to see him a few days
since, and the result was that they were mar
ried yesterday, as above stated. Coleman says
that he will send her home to her parents, and
when his time is out he will serve the certificate
(of marriage) on the old folks and claim her.
Sitddsn Dbaths.?On Friday last, Jas. Con
way, a saddler, went into Fletcher's tavern, at
the comer of 94th and G streets, and while
Bitting on a barrel he suddenly fell and died in
a short time?before medical assistance could
be procured. Coroner Woodward held an in
Juest and "a verdict that his death was caused
?om apoplexy was rendered.
On Saturday morning an unknown soldier
was taken suddenly ill near the Circle Bar
racks, in the First ward, and died In a few
minutes. The surgeon in charge of tbe hospi
tal took charge ol the body and as a soldier
had died in a very, similar manner the previous
night it was surmised that poison had been
administered, and Sergt. Hnriy, of the police,
was sent for. An inquest was held by Coroner
Woodward. Dost mortem wo
held but no traees of potson Was observed, add
a verdict was rwdmd tha?Ksnth was caused
by intemperance and exposure to the sen.

The Alexandria correspondent of the Times
gives the particulars of a quarrel between the
American Consul and the Egyptian Govern
ment. An American, in erecting a steam en
gine, partially destroyed an aqueduct for sup
plying the town with water. The Consul, on
being applied to by the authorities, stopped
the works, but subsequently permitted then
to proceed. The Government then forcibly
interfered, and ejected the workmen. The
Consul hereupon demanded satisfaction for
the insult to the American tlag. He refused to
accede to the proposal that each party should
send an engineer to inspect the alleged dam
age, agreeing to abide by their jilnt decision*
and threatened to strike his colors unless sat
isfaction was given within twenty.four hour*.
Accordingly, after that time elapsed tbe fla?c
was hauled down, and a dispatch from the
Government, which arrived almost immedi
ately afterwards, was returned unopened. The
Col suI telegraphed to Constantinople, and the
matter rests.
