gleets asst rabl-'d, >esterday afternoon, at the
rooms cf Mr. M. Geary, in Grover'a Theater
Biildng, 'o witness an exhibition of superior
billiard playirg by the distingnshed perfor
Tner, Mr John I>Bery, assisted by Mr. Cleary,
tii' proprietor ot the establishment.
They played one game ot the French carom
ardoueof the American carom, twenty-five
points ot the termer, and four hundred and
eigb t j of the latter.
Subsequently Mr Deery executed a number
of Hergpr's remaikable masse shots.
Among the gues's pr?sent were Senators
Powell, of Kentucky; McL>ougal, of Califor
tia; Brigadier Generals Terry and Caldwell,
and Col H. F Llehenau, of the 25?h New York
ca>alry. A letter from Major General Han
cock was received by Mr. Geary, declining the
invitation to be present, in handsome terms,
stating that business engagements would not
permit his attendance.
In the French carom game, tc-scores were
as follows : - ?
Deery?0, 4. 0, 1, 0, 0. 2, 0, 0. ('?, 0, 1, I, 0, 3, 0, 0,

Located from thk Cells.?Last nigh', a
female named Sarah I. Hamilton, of very in
temperate habit*, was jpcked up by the Third
Ward police so drunk ar ..thinlyclad that had
the not been taken to ue station house It la
possible the coroner would have been required
to attend her this morning. During the night
ehe attempted, or leigned an attempt, to hang
hereelt Jn the cell, but was pr? vented from
doing hersell any harm. She has several times
been sent to the workhouse from that station
boose, and fully calculated upon "going the
?oyage" this morning. Unfortunately, the
Colored boy who attends to the cleaning and
arranging of the cells afforded her an oppor
tunity which sh-? profited by and escaped,
baretooted. bareheaded and almost naked.
Upon all former occasions, when sent to the
workhouse some person appeared to pay her
line and release her, showing that intemperate
ns she is ehe is 110' altogether friendless. If
they will ca*-e for her adequately the corpora
tion will be saved much trouble.
District Matters in Cosgb2&3?In the
Senate, yesterday, Mr. Orl'nes presented a
memorial from the Washington Gas Light
Company, ashing for the passage of an act au
thorizing them to increase the price of gas in
the city, which was referred to the Committee
od the District of Columbia.
In the communication lrom the Secretary of
the Interior, relative to the appropriations by
t*>e city author.ties of certain public grounds
tor use as ranrkets and for other purposes, the
becretsry calls the attention of Congress to the
?'L ug Bridge" across the Potomac, and sug
whether it would not be wi-e aisd prudent
t > direct ibe transfer of the rails thereon (it not
b -lag c? signed tor a railroad) to the new bridge
h orgside erected by the Washington. Alexan
dria ai.d Ltcrgptown Railroad Company, and
t p*i ttie f r the repair of the former so as to
fl it again for ordinary travel.
Akkbsts kok Grand Larceny.?Last
tx ght. John Schult* was arrested by the Me
tropolitan Detectives on charge of stealing gas
ai.a water fixtures, soda fountain machtnerv,
lead p pe, Jcc , to a large amount, from the
Capitol, Patent Offi e, Smithsonian and o'-her
places. He was captured by the aid of the
jur.k shop keepers on 7th street, to whom the
articles were.sold. Pawn tickets for clothiug
weie tound on him. Heis now held by Super
intenaent Richards for further investigation,
and portions of the property are now at the
police headquarters to be identified.
The detectives also arrested Nancy Gaines,
a colored ser\ai:t 111 the house of M Lullay,
4&>. K street, for robbing the house of clothing
ard jeweiry. A portion of the goods were re
covered aud identified by Mr. Lullay. She is
held by tae Superintendent for iurti. r exam
ination in order to recover the balance of the
1 roperty stolen.
Not Used as a Synagogue.?In the case
of Martin Ellei burger and Ellen Ellenburger,
1 barged with k-ep:ng a house of prostitution,
tried before Justice Handy, a wi ness, nam^d
Margaret Holmes, stated that "Mrs. Ellen
burger came up to the Synagogue oa D street '
to e> t and another girl to go to her
house as boarders We are requested by mem
bers of the Hebrew congregation to say that the
bouse in question has not for a long time been
occupied by them as a synagogue, bnt is used
as a drinking house; hence, the designation
used by the w tness is a misnomer. We may
add, in this lomiection, that the new syna
gogue of the Hebrew congregation, 011" *th
street, is one of the finest church edifices in the
city. _
