Tne cause of this unfriendly act does not appear, but it may in some way be connected with the recent tri umph of the Liberals, or tbe just remonstrances ai'H n.-t the open help render?d tbe Imo-Tial Government in the shape of arms, mauiuous and provisions.

Damaqeh Claimed fob heino called a Nkoho.?A suit is pending In the Fourth Dis tiict Court, the decision ol which involves some novel points in law. A man named Tyos was expelled from the Hackman's Benevolent Association on the ground that he was of African blood, and he sued a member of tbe association named Marphy, for damages in the sum of live thousaud dollars, as the party who movrd the expulsion and alleged that he was of Air can descent The damages were claimed upon the ground that tte assertion was false, and that he is of Caucasian blood. In tbe changed condition of our social and political organization, result ing from the war, it is probable tbat the Courts will not regard it as any more offensive to c- li a mnn a negro than it would be tocall him a Frenchman, an Englishman, or an Irishman, but other considerations enter into this case. Tyos marri'd a white woman in this city many years ago, who has borne to him several children; and to say tbat he bad negro blood in him would be equivalent to saying tbat bis childien were illegitimate; for at tbe tlmeot his marriage, matrimonial relations between th- two races were prohibited. The decision of tbe court will be looked for wi'h interest. The testimony showed beyond doubt that the plaiutiff was born in Nova Sco tia, and tbat his progenitors, traced as tar bark as his grard parents, were of the Cauca sian stock, both grandfather and grandmother having emigrated from Ireland toNwvaSco tia.?iStw i/rltans Cresccnt.

He gave notice that at the next Convention, special or otherwise, be would ask leave for the erection of the diocese of Washington, with such boundaries as mav then be determined The tellers ot the vote for standing com mittee reported the following as elected: Rev. Drs. Pinckney, Nelson, Rankin, Crosdale, McKenuey, Mahan and L*win. The memorial of the clergy and lay mem bers of the Eastern Shore, for the division of the diocese and ih* erection of a new see. was then read by the secretary. After a state ment from the Kev. Dr. Lewin. the Kev. Dr. Nelson moved that the request of the petition ers be granted. Mr Daniel Clarke moved, as a substitute, that it be referred to the commit tee on so much of the Bishop's address as re fers to himself and the episcopate Alter debate, Kev. Dr. Hall moved the pre vious question on the substitute of Mr. Clarke, when the substitute was declared lost. The question then occurring on the resolu tion of Mr. Nelson, was passed. On motion of Rev. Dr. Mahan, a committee of four, consisting of two clerical and two lay member*, was appointed to communicate to Bishop Whittingham the action of the Con. vention In reference to the division of the D ocese. The committee is as follows: Revs. Mason and Crossdale, and Messrs. Adkinsand Burnett. Rev. Mr. Christian moved the adoption of the proposed change in the 5th article of the Constitution, which at present requires six months' notice to be given of the election of an Assistant Bishop. The change, as pro posed, requires enly three months' notice. The vote was taken bv ballot, resulting as follows: Clerical vote?yeas 31, nays 3P. Lay vote yeas 42. nays 21.?Baltimore Commercial. Thibd Day.?The Convention reassembled Friday morning, and prayer was conduct ed by Rev. Messrs. Miller and Parkmau. Kev. Dr. McKenney, president pro tern., took the chair and called the Convention to order. Rev. Dr. Mahan, from the committee on so much ot the Bishop's address as refers to him self and the episcopate, presented a report stating that there were two modes of relief tor the diecese discussed by the Bishop?one be ing the appointment of an Assistant Bishop, to which the Bishop is opposed. It is a meas nre of doubtfu 1 propriety, and, if adopted by the Convention, would result in the resigna tion of the Hisbop The committee agree with the views expiessed by the Bishop, and recom mend the 6econu mode proposed, namely: the division of the present diocese into three dio ceses. one t? be the Eastern Shore, the second to consist of the city of Washington, with the Potomac counties, and the third the city of Baltimore and the upper countries The com mittee further unanimously recommend the appointment ot a committee of nine, com posed of clerical and lay delegates, to con sider the outline ol the divisions proposed aUo. a committee or three to consider the best way of dividing the episcopal fund among the dioceses propoe?d, to be made In their re port. An additional resolution to the report was submitted by Rev. Mr. Olds that the Conven tion give its cousent to such further division ot the d ocese a- will make Washington city the see of a separate diocese. The reading of the repoit gave rise to gen eral discussion, participated in by R?v l>r. Hall. Rev. J. V. Lewis, D. Clarke, Mr. 1'er ine, Col. Hughes, and Mr. Marbury The lat u r gentleman, in opposition to the adoption of the report, claimed that the clergy aud laity of the d'ocese desired the present Bishop to resign, and that the diocese of the whole State could be properly superintended and regu lated bv one efficient man in the episcopal office. The speaker claimed to be supported in his views by a large number of gentlemen, both clerical and lay Kev Mr. Olds addressed the body, and con cluded by withdrawing his amendment. Tiie question upon the adoption of the report of the committee and resolutions was sailed for, and the resolutions were acted upon seri atim. and adopted. Kev. Dr. Mahan offered a preamble,with an accompanying resolution, that a committee be appointed to consider some plan, in accord ance with the constitution and canons of the General Conference, by which common coun sel and unity of astion might prevail among the dioceses proposed to be made, and report the same to the next diocesan convention. After some discussion, the resolution was adopted. Rev. J. E Grammar, from the Committee upon the State of the Church, submitted a lengthy report, in which It was stated that the confirmations during tne past year amounted to nearly 1,000, and that hopes are entertained that there will be a large increase in the fu ture. The report was accepted and ordered to be printed in the jonmal. Rev. Dr. Nelson, from the committee ap pointed at the last Convention, on Freedmen, reported in tavor of educating thefreedmea ol ol the Church, as it was certain, he said, that they would have schools of some ?ort, and if pastors did not see to it they would be brought under influences this Church could not sanc tion. The report, which was also in favor ot the clergy supplying them with holy adminis trations, until they can provide for them selves, which was also accepted and ap proved. The Chair announced as the committee on the lines for the new dioceses. Revs. Mr. Olds. Hutten and Stryker, and Messrs. A. B. Davie. Clarke, Tinges, H. S. Davis, Somer viile, and Brougban.

After the usual religious exercises, the Con vention adjourned sine die.?Baltimore Com ??< rcial. ThbWokkiko Peopl*.?The Connecticut Legislature recently referred the eight-hour question to a committee. The majority of the committee, it is said, have agreed to report a bill providing for the eight-hour system in all cases except where the employers and work men make an agreement to the contrary. The minority of the committee, however, intend to report an eight-hour bill without this excep tion, and the latter is said to meet with the greatest favor among the workingmen. The New York plasterers, who some time ago agreed to strike this week for the eight-hour system, on Tuesday, at a society meeting, re considered their resolution. It was discussed for some time, and a letter from Springfield, Illinois, was read, which stated that the eight hour system would subside at the West until fall, and that the men had generally con sented to work ten hours a day for an increase of pay. When the debate was over, the reso lution that the plasterers of New York strike tor the eight-hour system was defeated by a very heavy vole. This will probably influ ence the other New York trades not to strike for the new system at the present time. In New York new co-op?irative movements among working men are constantly an nounced, and these that are in operation ap pear to be working successfully. The Re8?a* Army.?A French newspaper states thai the strength of the active army of Kussih, which to 1853 consisted of 58V,'too men, is now 8oo,ooo.

The meeting will be addressed by several well kiiown (Conservative citizens ol tbe city and waro The voters are invited to come, kfir, arliberau, and then form their own conclu 8,2?.f ? ?y order of the executive committee." 1 be call excited some cariosity, and quite a nnmner of white Republicans were present. a? well as white Conservative*, bnt owing to some cause unexplained the colored people of ^lie Seventh Warn, for whose benefit the rais tionsiy effort was specially intended, did not appear in any appreciable numbers. Early in the evening a large fonr-horse om nibu?, bearing the placards, "Mass meeting of the colored voters," was started out witu a food cornet band to drum up recruits, and it parsed through Oowtown, Fredericksburg, and other localities, from which it was ex pected a crowd wonld be drawn, but tbe col ored voters did not fall in to the extent expected. About 8.15 the buss was driven up 7th street, and by D street to tbe hail, tb? band playing "Wait for the wagon," and a number ef persons of both sexes and colors, and all ages below twenty, following it sing, ing. Perhaps fifteen colored persons were in this crowd, but they remained outside, with the exception of one, who peeped in the door, and not liking the complexion ef things backed ont in a hnrrv. By half-past eight there were some fifty or sixty whites in the ball, who greeted the appearance of three colored men with loud applause. At ~.45 the omnibus, with band, having been seat on mother drumming-up tour returned witb quite a number of persons following, and the parties in the hall being notified that the meeting would be held outside, and the speak ; ing take place from one of the windows the crowd gathered on tbe north side of the build, ing to the number of two hundred. There were on the outskirts ot the crowd some 25 or 30 colored men, understood to be dissatisfied 1 with lorae of the .Republican nominations, while in another part ol the crowd were nearlv the same number of colored Radicals, who came to "see tbe fun." The first missionary who came forward to address the "heatben" was Rev. Chas. Allen He sa.d that the meeting was held for the pur pose cf informing the colored men In regard to Conservative principles, and he expressed his regrets that more were not present, but this could be accounted for by tbe fact that ever since the meeting had been called the Radicals had been going round notifying colored people not to attend. He desired to address tbe col ored men, and asked if they did not have minds of their own. or were they going to submit themtelves to be moved about like awheel barrew. They should hear both sides of the questions and decide for themselves. In this contest, are yon going to stand by those you have Known for years, or will you be led by those people you do not know ? How long have these pretended friends been in favor of suffrage. Mr. Boswell opposed it in the Phil adelphia convention. They never thonght of suffrage until they saw an opportunity to use them. Recently he overheard a conversation between some colored girls, cne of whom re marked that she bad been collecting for some benevolent object, and that Squire Boswell gave her *2 50, and another of the party said that he did so to get votes. This party adepts the motto. "Tbe greatest good to the greatest number,' but the greatest number to them is Pio. 1. These men do not give employment to the colored people: most ol them are migra tory birds?squatrers?here to-day and oft' to morrow. They charge that all the rebels are with the Conservative party, which he denied, and said that of those from the District who ,tuf,Un,on "my during tbe war, tbey with but few exc*ptiens were in the Con serv ative ranks. Mr. J L. N Bowen, (colored) secretarv of 'he Seventh Ward Radical Club, canu- lor ward and asked Dr. Allen to explain the mean ing of the word "Conservative.'" and whether they were in favor of universal snffrage Dr. Allen replied that those who consider well, and deliberate on the questions of tbe day, who are rot changed ab^ut by every wind ol doctrine, were Conservatives, and tbey held that every man, white or black, who had the requisite qualifications had the right to \ote. They were law-abiding people and were not opposed lo colored suffrage. At one of the Radical meetings a speaker said that if any colored man voted the Conservative ticket the city would be too hot for him. The Con servatives held that every man cbould vote as he pleases, and one thing he was sure of. and ttoat was, that every colored man who vot^s the Conservative ticket will be respected and recHye the support of the Conservatives thronghout the city. lie concluded by givme notice of the meeting to be held to-night Alderman Thomas- E. Lloyd followed, say mir that although he was a candidate, he did net solicit votes, but had come to place the issues before the people. Every intelligent colored man knew that the hordes of contra bands have no right to vote; thxttbev bave no interest here, having come to get refuge: and they were here in such numbers that they would drive off the old resident colored peo ple. Much had been said of bis remarks n the Board of Aldermen, and he had been mi? repreeented, what he did say was that these people had no more interest here thaa the gornla. and he was willing to let the old col ored residents decide whether he was right or not. Had the election franchise been extended to colored citizens who have been with its and raised among us. all good citizens would have rai.-eti no objection. He objected to giving tbe right ef suffrage to the contraband on the same grounds mat he would object to a parent giv ing his child a dangerous weapon to play with Tie question now is will the colored people take up these men professing to be their leaders but few of whom were known, and a few years ago none of whom were in favor of suffrage.

Mr. Lloyd.?No, sir Why, there were but thirty-three votes cast in favor of suffrage, and now 300 claim to have so voted. No, these men never thought of suffrage until Congress granted it. Did his competitor, (Mr. Wheeler,) bsfore the passage of the law, demonstrate in any of his meetings that the colored men should bave suffrage 7 No; It didn't pay then, but it pays now, and hence his lotid denunciation ot the Democra's [Applause ] Rev. Tom. Florence was next introduced, sad after saying that he considered it a duty to speak, he remarked that the Radicals who now professed friendship for the colored men were mostly strangers in thi6 community. He would give Mr. Hall the credit of being what he professed to be, and he " was able to give a reason for the faith which was in him." Mr H. had been consistent, at least, and he re spected him, but he could not say as much for the others. As for the school fund, It was given wi thout Uxe aid of the parties claiming to have obtained it.

Mr. Florence proceeded to charge that this was the kind of tactics taught by the Radicals who pretended to?friends of free speech. He andother Conservatives had been to Radical meetings and offered no interruption, and they expected none at tails meeting. He knew who tbe parties were?they were some of the Rad ical leaders, and the colored men (pointing to the left, in which direction were some colored people;) knew how to conduct themselves bet ter than these who pretended to have so much intelligence. He again charged that the Radi cals were using theee men for their own pur poses, and urged that My man, white or cot ored, who had an interest in this city, shoald not vote the city into the hands of the so-called friends of the colored race. The meeting about 11 o'cMck hdjoarned. SnywrH WabdBifcbucaxs?Last night. Ward RepublioanOlBhiaettn the **? ?*??**?. tf the eesusitt* oa : tie distribution of tickets, reported that the arrant;* menu will be completed on Sunday next, for distribution of ticket*. Dr. Boyd Hoped tbe committee will see the receselty of promptness and cau'.ioa Tin their distribution of ticketts. Dr. Boyd moved that the money be placed in tbe hands of Mr. Manning,s ubject to tbe order of tbe chairman of the committee on the ratifi cation n^eting; agreed to. Mr. Watson offered a resolution "Tha: all Kepnbliean candidates, and those elected in Georgetown, shall constitute a District Com mittee on Appointment*, to inquire into the loyalty of persons employed at tbe Govern ment Printing CMllce, the Assessors of Inter nal Revenue, tbe City Poet Office, the Smith . soman institute, the Public Buildings aud Gronads, and tbe Washington Aqueduct; aud tbe rusult of snob inquiry to tbe loyal press of tbe city at as early a day as convenient; and also to report to Congress at its next session. And we request every ward elub in tbe city to adopt this resolution.' Mr. Watson reviewed tbe resolution and gave bis reason lor it. Tbe Republicans in th# District have been wronged, not by their enemies, because they bave not the power, but by their friends. He reviewed tbe various in stitutions named in tbe resolution, and alleged that tbe Republicans have not received tbe Sortion to which they are entitled, and re ?rred to tbe Quartermaster's Department, and tb? court-bouse and court. Tbe lack of heart in tbe Republicans is the primary cause ot much of tbis unfair distribution ot tne benefits of these institutions, in which dis loyal men hold places which should be occu> pied by Republicans. Dr. Boyd moved tbe adoption of the re solution, and in a brief address endorsed the sentiments expressed by Mr. Watson, and enlarged upou tbe perfldity and mean ness apparent in this metropolis. He bad been recommended for a position in the Treasury. When he went to apply for a position there it was whispered In bis ear that it was worth $200. He replied if two hundred mills is to purchase the position he was the last man to get it. Tbe lioctor alluded to the probability that in Sume places tbe leading position is held by compromise with copper heads, and expressed contempt for all such as make compromise with rebels for the sake ot position, and concluded with an appeal to the voters of tbe ward to begin on Monday and clean out the city. Dr. Boyd said that tbe secretary of tbe club, Mr. Myers, was employed at tbe L>ong Bridge. It was smelled ont tbat be was a Radical, and for that reason be was dismissed. Tbe reso lution was adopted. Mr. Dyson (colored) hoped that tbe colored men will, when they go to tbe polls, and have their tickets in their bands, if asked by a white man to let him see it, tell him to mind his own business, and it be insists upon it turn to an officer and bave bim arrested. The law re quires tbe officer to do it, and rather than lose his $90 per month he will do justice. Rev. Mr. Bowen (colored) spoke of the con servative meeting where he bad bean, and had asked several questions, whicb had not been satisfactorily answered. He spoke ot Mr. Lloyd, who a week or two ago regarded the colored race as gorillas and monkeys, as be ing so tar reconstructed as to meet them as gentlemen, polite as a dancing master. Mr. Lloyd speaks of the right of old residents to all the immunities of citizens, but tbe contra band? have come bere, and to these be ob jected. Mr. Bowen regarded such exprejsions as an insult to all colored men. He condemned all who would yield to the advances of such men as Lloyd, Allen, and others, who bave been so lately reconstructed; men who so lately regarded them as beasts and monkeys, and who now insult them by telling tbem tbat the resident colored man is entitled to the franchise, but contrabands are not. The colored citizens are all contrabands. The same act tbat treed the slaves of Virginia freed the old residents of this District, and they occupy the same position as freedraen, notwithstanding a portion came from Vir ginia and other Southern States. Dr. Boyd offered the following Rftolifd, That the only true friend* of the colored men are tho*e who have worked for his emancipation, his equality before the law. ana hi3 fnll and impartial enfranchisement. Resolved, That no man who at any time de nied the right to persons of color to testify against a rebel for aiding the rebellion can be a friend to them, no matter what his profes sions may be. Adopted unanimously. Mr. M. T Parker, uominee for Common Council. ar;d others, was introduced, and ad dressed the club briefly: after which, the meeting adjourned Real Estate Kales.?Cooper &, Latimer, auctioneers, made yesterday the following impo: tant sale of lots :?Small frame house and lot on 4th street east, betw een A and B north, to INelsou McNeal, for #1,210; lot adjoining, to toe same purchaser, at 21 \ cents per square foot; frame dwelling on 13th street west, be tween New York avenue aud I street, to Al fa rr P.

Improvements ih the First Wabd.?An imi>ortant bill was recently passed by tbe City Councils providing for the commencement in several ot the principal streets in tbe First Ward, of what has long been needed bere?a general pystem ol sewerage. The work in the streets already provided tor is part of a gene ral Plan for the whole city, prepared by Mr. Foisytb, the City burreyor. Bills were also passed for tbe paving of tbe carriageways of H and I streets, from 14tk street to Pennsylva avenue, in a manner similar to F street. Tbe contractor fer H street, Mr. John Eascbbaugh, has commeneed operations from H street to Lafayette square, and has about fifty work men employed. Tbe work is making flkir pro. gress. The material used for puving is a sort of bine gneiss from Rocs Creek, as bard and durable as granite. It is in irregular blocks, which are rough enough to set firmly in their beds, but present quite a smooth surface. We trust pains will be taken to bave tbe work done in tbe best manner, and tbat those en trusted with its supervision will see that it is done well. All gas and water pipee should be laid down, and the excavations carefully filled and puddled, or otherwise settled, previous to pavlug; otherwise the work will not stand. If there is no sucb disturbance, pavement of tbis kind ought to last fifteen years withoat re pairing.

As Important Impbovkmbxt.?At present, in consequence of the dilapidated condition of the outlet lock at tbe mouth of Rock Creek boats cannot be passed from tbe Chesapeake A Ohio Canal into tbe Potomac, except at Alexandria.

AUIxahdbta ahd Vicihitt.?'The <ki:ei'e of 3 esterday says: Three United States soldiers, early on Wednesday night last, entered Reynolds* tav ern, at tbe south end of tbe Ix>ng Bridge, and after drlnkiog as much liqnoras they wanted, paid for tbe same by knocking down tbe bar tender (Wm. Ray) with a billy, and robbing him of about fifty dollars. A farmer from Loudoun county, named Johnson, was also, and about the same time, robbed by these same parties ef his coat, containing valuable papers. After committing these outrages, the soldiers entered a skiff lying by, and crossed the river in tbe direction of Georgetown. It is thought tbat the desperadoes are known. Tbe locomotive Rapidan was drawing a heavily loaded freight train slowly up tbe grade near Fairfax Station, bound tor this city, Thursday afternoon, when tbe cab portion of tbe boiler blew out, taking with it all that pari of tbe engine, and killing tbe engineer, George Lvncb, and the fireman, Henry Rose. No other persons were at all in jured. Mr. Rose's body was not ranch diefigr.red and was merely knocked down, while that of Mr. L>yncb was horribly mutilated, being tern into fragments, scattered over a large space, and some por tions blown a distance of two or three hun dred yards from tbe scene of tbe accident. His bead had not been found at last accounts. M. K. Jones, tbe soldier stabbed last Wednes day, Is, It Is thought, likely to recover. It appears that Jones and Monlden had a quar rel about a female, which resulted In Jones making a violent attack on Moulden, beating and bruising him quite severely, wbereupuu the latter produced a two-bladed pen-kuife and inflicted two ugly stabs on the person of Jonee, one in the left side of the abdomen and the other in tbe hack, below the shoulder blade.
