tee called upon the President of the United
JSutes, yesterday afternoon, at 1 o'clock, by ap
piintment. They were separately introduced
to the President by the Hon. Montgomery
After the ceremony was concluded, w H.
Ptrnell, Esq , chairman of the committee, de
ji'ered an eloquent address, in which he said.
?>?bey rejoiced that the people, by an almost
mammons and unp'ecedented majority, had
acain elevated the President to the proudest
aid mott honorable position on earth, and had
eidorsed his course of action. They fflt under
dtep obligations to him, because he had ap
preciated their condition as a slave State. It
vwi- not too much to say that, by means of the
eiert ise of a rare discretion on hi* part, Mary
l*.d occupies a position in favor of freedom,
bivlng forever abolished slavery by the sov
en-igti decree of her own people. They desired
Hat his Administration in the future, .as in the
mst, would result in the restoration of the
1'nion, with lreedom as its immutable basis.
after further remarks of a like appropriate
, taracter, mr Purnell expressed the hope that
tte Pr? siden', on retiring from his hieh and
inportant position, would receive the uni
> *rsal approval ot man kind: and may Heaven."
he said, '-crown your days with loving kind
ness and tender mercy."
The president, in reply, said "He had to
confess that he was fnlly notified ot the in
tention thus kindly to call upon him. and by
:hat means be had a fair opportunity ottered
to be ready with a set speech, bnt he had not
prepared one, having been very bnsy with his
pabiic duties: therefore, he could only speak
as the thoughts might occur to him. He would
rot attempt to conceal from them the fact that
he was gratified at the res alt of the Presiden
tial election, and he would assure them that he
baa kept as near a.- he could to the exercise of
his best judgment, tor the promotion of the in
terests of the whole country; and now, to have
the seal of approbation marked on the courae
tie had puraued was exceedingly gratifying to
his feelings. He might go further and say that,
in as large proportion as any other man, his
pleasure consisted in the belief that the policy
he had pursued would be the best and the only
one that could save the country. He had said
before, and wonld now repeat, that he indulged
in no feeling of triumph over any one who
thought or acted differently from himself.
He had no such feeling towards any living
man
When he thought of Maryland in particular,
It was that the people had n>"re than double
their share in w hat naa o iurred in the elec
tions He thought the adoption of their free
s^ate c-nstitutio! wa- a bigger thingthan their
pa:' the pr-'ldential election. He could,
^iny d!-v, anva siipu.^ted to lose Marylaud in
the" Preside nial e.ection to save its free con
stitution, because the Presidential election
cmes every four years, and the adoption of
the constitution, being a good thing, could not
be undone. He therefore thought in that they
bad a victory fer the right worth a great deal
more than their parts in the Presidential elec
tion. although he thought well of that. He
01)11- before said, and would now say again,
?hat those who had differed from us and op
posed us would see that it was better for their
own good that they had been defea-ed,rather
than to have been successful. Thanking them
for their compliment, he said he would bring
to a close that short speech."
The company then entered into a free and
pleasant conversation with the President, who
was in the best poss.ble spirits, ard the com
mittee took their leave, well pleased with the
interview.
i ike.?Abont half-past nine o'clock last night,
fire uas discovered in the feed storehouse of
mn hael Green, in the square between l >th and
lJth st. and L street and Massachusetts ave
nue The patrolman on the beat hastened to
the alarm box, No. 37, corner of Pith and I
> re?-u, and gave the alarm: but before the fire
men were able to reach the spot and get to
work, tne storehouse and coutents were nearly
d?-;-troyed. The fire spread to a number of
wood and coal shed-' adjoining, and these wsre
socn destroyed The more valuable property
around was endangered by the rapid spreading
of the flames; but the firemen succeeded in
getting water from the plugs, and prevented
serious damage. The loss will fall heavily
upon Mr. Green, as we learn that his store
ho> s- was well filled, and in addition to that a
earri ige valued a' several hnndred dollars
wa> destroyed. The origin of the Are had not
oeen accounted for.
The loss of Mr. Green is estimated *-o be
o 0. A horse and cow were burned in the
stable connected with the feed house.
Stkalim* macuimbrv.?Last Saturday, a
colored boot-black, named Albert Foster, went
to the store of Wheeler jc Bro., corner of 7th
street and canal, and offered for sale, impor
tant parts of the machinery of aprinting press.
Mr. Wheeler took the pieces and told him to
? oine back and get the pay yesterday. The boy
returned as directed, and offered mote of the
same sort of machinery. Mr. Wheeler had him
arrested by Roundsman Kelly,of the Ith Ward,
who succeeded in finning out that the pieces
?were stt-len from Tower's priuting pre>s, cor
ner of i?tb street, and Louisiana avenue. The
boy is held f?>r a hearing by Justice Giberson.
i orsi) ami- Se< ci:BD.?Last Wednesday, the
young man Douglass, who took lodtrings at
Mrs Hayes' boarding-house on street, aad
was missed soon after with a lot of valuable
clothing lielongmg to other boarders, as stated
in the .star of that day, was caught He was

missing man, though he gave the name of

Garrett vs. Hoorv?A few days since, in
the Circuit Court, (Judge Olin,) the ciseof
."Milton (}a?*i*tt against John Hood was tried
Mr. Hlunt for plaiutiff and Mr. M. Thompson
lor defendant.
The suit was to recover the amount of sev
eral notes drawn by Hood in favor of R. B.
Ironside, and endorsed by the latter. The de
fendant pleaded non astumtif, the statute of
limitation and usury. The plaintiff testified
that he had purchased the notes from Iron
side, and that they were free from nsurv Mr.
Thompson argued that the case of Thompson
ajtavrst Bowie (decided a few weeks since by
Chief Justice Cartter) and this case were per
fectly analogous, and, although he did not ac
quiesce in that decision?which be thought
would be overruled by the TTnit?d States Su
preme Court?he considered it for the time
being as the law of the court, and he desired
that his client should have the benefit of it. As
in Bowie's case, evidence had been allowed t?
go 1o the jnry that th? pave eot the notes kept a
gambling honse, and none other: that Bowie's
propensity, when drunk, wis to visit gambling
bouses and play; that he (Bowie) gave a not??
bearing the fame date with those in the suit to
another party?he proposed to offer evidence
that. Garrett kept a usurious hoase ;
that he (Garrett) was engaged in a
usurious business and none other; that when
sober his propensity wastoengage in such busi
ness; that on the same day of the date of the
noes in this suit, Garrett discounted other
notes at usurious rates.
Mr. Thompson argued that there was no dis
tinction in principle between the twocases, and
that 11 the evidence was admitted in one case it
ongbt to be admitted in the other
Judge Olin overruled the offer.
Col. Thompson took exceptions to this ruling,
and the defendant and Mr. Ironside were put
on the stand, ^the law now allowing parties to
a suit to testify in their own behalf,) and testi
fied that the notes were made by Hood, and en
dorsed by Ironside, at the request and for the
accommonation of Hood, to enable him to raise
money. Garrett discounted the notes at nsn
rions Interest, with a full knowledge of all the
facts.
Judgment was given for defendant.
Granp Larceny.?Yesterdavofficer Howard
arrested John Shea and James Fox, for the
larceny of a suit of clothes, the property of
Kate Bennett. The accused were taken before
Justice Giberson and sent to jail for court.
The same officer arrested Wm. Haislemau,
for the larceny of a suit of clothes from Henry
Amstag. The property was recovered, and
the prisoner lodged in the Fourth ward Station
to await a bearing before Justice Giberson.
