W'm D. Colt, E?q.. in furnishing their steamboats to excursionists promptly and at moderate prices. The steamer Wawas^etcan be chartered fer excursions to Glymont and other points on the river, oa application at the office of the company, foot of 7th street. Citizens and strangers desiring a pleasant trip to Mount Yernon are informed that the Wa wasset leaves the wharf, foot ot 7th street. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings at 10 o'clock a. m., returning at 3.30 p. m. The steamboats ef the company still make their regular hourly trips between Washington and Alexandria, from 0 o'clock a. m , to 7 o'clock p. m. Tm Sanitary Kbuulatiohr.?Although tbe city is in a very fair condition, there are in various localities nuisances which, it not speedily abated, will become deleterious to health.'and others becoming dangerous to the safety of pedestrians. We intend by this brief paragraph to notify property owners and oc cupants to be prompt in abating nuisances exi?ticg upon their premises and setting their property in order. As tbe sanitary police are abont rommencing their summer inspections, and will continue them at brief intervals until Uie fall, by ceatributing to the health aa well as cleanliness of the city, at the cost of alitUe labor, they will save themselves considerable expense of fines, as the laws will be rigidly enforced. ? Ncisabcb Capbs.?Yesterday, Jno. Dono van and M.C. Williams, for creating a nui sance. were arrested by offloar Howes, mad fined the ftrst ft, and the last 93 Margaret Brltt was fined si by Justice Harper. The Nnr Offiobrs ? J. Rus???ll Barr, eleeteri President of tbe Board of Aldermen jesterday. is an old and accomplished mem ber, baring ?erved some thirteen years in the City Councils. Hit address yesterday *hows that be baa given thoughtful considera tion to tbe wants of this community and ttt? legislation required to meet them. John Tar ton, re-elected V ice President of the Board ot Aldermen. Is also an old and valuable mem ber. Mr. S V. Noyes, elected Secretary, has served in (hat capacity for some years, and most satisfactorily, a> shown by his unani mous re election, Mr. Kleiber, re-elected Messenger, is a sen of the late venerable Jacob Kleiber. who filled the same situation so many years. James C. Dulin, elected President of the lower Board, is perhaps the youngest member ever placed in that position, and the fact of bis selection bears testimony to his marked qualifications for the place. He haa ahown such qualifications, we'learn, as presiding officer of various organization*. The Secre tary of the lower Board. Major H. A. Hall, it known as a leading member of the Soldier*' and Sailors1 Union, and is well qualified for tbe duties. A colored reading clerk and col ore* messenger were selected by the lower Beard. J. T. John?on, tbe reading clerk, has been an employee of the House of Representa tives for some years, and seme of the members at the last session of Congress paid him the compliment of proposing to introduce his came as a corporator in an important com pany charter. ?. S. Atkinson, tbe messenger, took a leading part in the canvass pre ceding the late municipal election. Riot an? Arkutb.-Last night, two col ored men named G. W. H. Jones and Cufise Burley, started from the lower part ot the Seventh Ward to go to a meeting. Burley was assailed by a young; white man named John H. Rollins, find Jones, trying to persuade Rollins to desist, drew the attention of the as sailant to himself Several other young man rushed up to aid Rollins, and the colored men r;m, followed some distance by the assailants. Jones felt bis arm growing weak, and some thing trickling down which he supposed to be perspiration. On the chase being given up, Jones discovered that he had been stabbed in the arm. and believed that Rollins did it. Of ficers F. A Evans, Turn burke, James, and Mardere, with Lieut. Gessford, arrested Benj. Greenwell, Thomas Boyland. James Berrv, John Goldsmith, John H. Rollins, and Geo. Rowles. and took them before Justice Tucker. Rollins and Rowles were positively identified, and were sent to jail for court. Greenwell was also identified by the colored men, but there being evidence creating a doubt whether he or his twin brother is the right party, he was held for a further hearing. Boyland was used as a witness. Goldsmith and Berry were dismissed, and the arrest of other parties was ordered. Jones was not injured very severe ly by the stabbing, though the wound bled profusely. Tearing Work.?We hear that on Satur day afternoon last, during the absence ot the gatekeeper, a party of about seventeen men? Joseph Birch, Lewis Crump, two Ives, and others?tore down, carried off, and destroyed the toll-gare on the Washington and Leesburg turnpike, situated a mile or so below the vil lage of Falls Church, in Fairfax county, Va , eeroe eient or ten miles from this city. The ofler.ders were all residents of tbe village and vicinity, whese grievance was the bad con dition of the road, on which they object to pay ing toll until put in proper order. The com pany owning the road will doubtless prompt ly prosecute all concerned in the act. when f urther particulars of the affair will of course be developed. ? Presentation ?Last evening, at the meet ing of Harmony Lodge of Odd Fellows, a set oi resolution? were presented on behalf of the lodge to P. G. Rennet R. Lawson, of Thomas Wildey Lodge. Baltimore, in token of the ap preciation by the lodge of many and repeated eels of kindness to members of Harmony Lodge. The resolutions are in an elegant frame, in which are photographs of the six oldest past grands of the lodge. The presen tation speech was made by Past Grand Fred. Prosperi, to which P. G. Lawson replied, and other addresses followed. ? Fraternal Visit.?Last evening, George Washington Camp, No 1. Sons of Liberty, located at tbe Navy Yard, paid a fraternal visit to Lincoln Camp, of the same order, lo cated at the corner of 9th and D streets, being beaded by Heald's American Brass Band, in full uniform. The two Camps spent a very agreeable time together, listening to addresses, Ac., and separated at a very late hour. There are now, we understand, four camps in this city whose members approach a thousand, and a new camp is abont being formed. Salb of Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company Stock.?Cooper & Latimer, auc tioneers. sold yesterday $11,000 of Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company (preferred bonds with 15 years interest due thereon,) at 30 cents on tae dollar. Tbe stock was sold on account of the Franklin Insurance Company. As the ; stock has been held nearly worthless hereto fore, this saJe indicates that it is looking up: ' and some of our shrewd business men hold that tbe day is not very far distant when it will be held at par. ? SriT for Rent of Political Hbadquab I tubs.?Mr. H. S. Fant has brought suitagainst Charles Knapp, Charles Mason, Montgomery Blair. Ward H Lamon.John F. Coyle.Augus tus E Perry, Jas. R. O'Beirne. Samuel Few ; ler. and Cornelius Wendell for a balance of j ?P75 due for the rent of bailding on D street, i between 5th and <Sth streets, from June 3d, to November 18tb, 1966, used as the National Union Headquarters. Thb Presidemtial Party, who returned to Washington on Saturday, express them selves in the warmest terms of the kind atten ! tion and hospitality everywhere extended to them on the trip to and from Raleigh. Mr. ' Oeorge Mattingly, Agent of the Potomac and Aquia Creek Steamboat Company, and acting for the Southern railroad connections, accom panied the party all the way, doing everything in his power and unremittingly contributing to the comfort of the distinguished party. ? The Collector's Office.?Mr. A. G. Hall, the newly elected City Collector, has gone North, partly on business and partly In quest of health. it has l>een stated that he will re tain Mr. Samuel Cross in his present position as Chief Clerk. The experience and ability of Mr. Cross would make him a valuable acquisition, but we believe he has not heard of any such arrangement. Thb Jury Pavbl in thb Sttrratt Case ? It is rumored that the action of tbe prosecution yesterday in objecting to the jury panel, was from the belief that a considerable number of those on the jury list were of the same religions belief as the prisoner. As there are many ex aggerated rumors afloat, it is probable that this is not the cause of the action ef the prose cution. ? An Object of Pity.?This morning. Ellen Brown, (colored,) a helpless cripple, having lost both legs, was found at 4# o'clock in tbe streets of tbe Third Ward, and taken to the station house. She tells of having been wronged by a white soldier, and had a notion of making him marry her. Not so.?Through some confusion of names, Mr. S. P. Brown, coal dealer, 7th street wharf, and Mr. Robert Campbell were charged at a Republican ward meeting with having dis charged their colored employees after tbe election. We learn tbat the allegation is en tirely unfounded as regards these gentlemen. Suit Commenced?Tbe District Attorney has commenced a salt in tho name of the United States against James It. Hood and tbe sureties on his bond of 98,000. as Postmaster at Chattanoega, Tenn., he. it is alleged, not having faithfully performed the duties of the office. ?
