Peuu*>>l\anin l'rre-l.ovfn in WmB Iokton. AN rSPAlTHTI'I. VUSnAMD AND AM ISKAOIO wir*. About :> o'clock last night quite a scene took place at a l.onse on Market Space, between *th ard yth streets, in which the principal actor was an erraeed wife, who caught her husband, Mr. D. W. Smith, in the company of another woman, with whom the wile alleges he has been living on terms of improper intimacy for some time past. The wife, who resides in WiUiams Cort.Pa.. arrived In this city last evening, and y some mean* ascertained the whereabouts of her husband, and proceeded to the house pre viously indicated, and. finding him enjoying the society of another fair one, commenced de molishing the furniture of the room, which she did pretty effectually. The offending Benedict subsequently retired to the National hotel, where he boards, while his wife went to the Metropolitan, where she bad previously secured quarters. The cause of the row is a Mrs. Lip pincott, a Wi'V.amsport widow, who plead* that she is a convert to the Woodhull free-love doc trine. and that the gentleman In question is the only man she ever loved. She says she came from Wiliiamsport two months ago. and has been living with him ever since, and that as soon as he can secure a divorce, application for which has already been made, he will marrv her. She says that her people in Wiliiamsport are under the impression that she is employed in the Treasury. The truant husband is well known In this city, and has been engaged in the business of furnishing to contractors here the blocks necessary to lay wooden pavements in the District. There are no new developments in the case to-day, other than that Mm. Smith left the Metropolitan hotel this morning for Wil iiamsport, Pa., where the f.itnily are living in good style, being very wealthy, leaving the other dear -harmer and her husband to them selves. It s said by his friend* to-day that he says he don't care a d?n about it, and only regrets not having put a head on " that re porter" last night, it is also rumored that be intends to apply for a divorce from his wife. North Arlim<;tom Heights The most de lightful, healthful and desirable homes in the world are in the country, near acity, where the advantages of both city and country are com bined. The little "seven by nine lots of the city will do for store*, hotels and place* of busi ness. bnt to render the home of a family in ?very way all that it should be, it requires a few acres of ground instead of a few feet, where there is room for a lawn, with shade trees, a flower garden, and where there is room for out-door exercise and amusement, breathing the pure Invigorating air of the country, incon taminated aaln the crowded city; and where one can have their own orchards of the apple, pear, peach, qnlnee and cherry, border* of grape*, strawberries, r as berries, blackberries, currant*. Ac. A rare opportunitv is now offered by Mr K. A. Phillips, 613 15th street, to secure a most desirable site fer such a delight ful home, with a few acres of land, combining everv advantage we have named in hi* recent ?abdivlsion of "The North Arlington Heights," which is the most attractive sect ion of the coun try surrounding this city, especially for its un ?qualed view* of this city and surrounding countrv, its position being "high, dry and per fectly healthy, making some fifty small farms of from"one to twentv acres each, as will be seen by referring to our advertising columns.

Ihe T?ent)-lir?l DIMrirl Republicans Mav? a Lively Time. A meeting of the republican club of the 21st district was held last night at the new market bouse comer of fith street and North Carolina avenue northeast. The market-house has re cently been completed, with the exception of placing the stalls therein, and afforded ample snare tor a rousing big meeting, such as the club managed to gather there last night. In the north end a Urge platform had been elevated some three feet above the level ot the floor, in front of which a large number of American flag* were arranged in festoons, presenting alto getl-er a pleasing appearance when lighted up with gas. The National brass band. Choral glee club (consisting of six member*), and in vited speakers took seats on the platform, and the meeting was called to order by Mr. A. Campbell, president of the clnb, who briefly statf d the obfect* to be to endeavor TO HARMONIZE TBI CONFLICTING ELEMENTS In the district, complete the club organization, and hear the reports of committees. He al luded to the rumor that certain disaffected members of the party had withdrawn from the regular club, and were banding together for the Erpose of disorganizing the good old party, called upon tliem to return to the republi can told before it was too late. The first busi ness would be the election of secretary, and he called for nominations. At this point George H. McReynolds, colored, rose to make some remarks, and the chair railed him to order, be being one of the disaf fected ones, and not a member of the club. The chair said he must renounce his allegi ance to rebel organizations and Join the regular clnb. in order to receive recognition at their meeting*. Sidney Herbert (mounted on a chair.)?"Do I understand the chair to rule out any citizen of the 21*t district who desires to speak his mind at this mas* meeting." The Chair.?"It i* not a mass meeting, but a regular meeting of the republican club of the 21st district." 1HTBR. TBI FOLIC*. Here a confusion of voices followed in the rear of the hall, where Herbert hail his followers posted, and the sadden tamalt became so loud that Lieutenant Austin and a posse of bis police filed into the room, which so alarmed a dozen or two spinsters of both colors who bad taken seats in front of the staDd that they gathered up their skirts and fled. A number of motions folio we. 1. "I move the proceedings of the last meeting be adopted," shouted one. Several voices in response: "They are not the proceedings of the last meeting, at all, but bogus proceedings." "Clarence Barton has them in his coat pocket." "I move we adjourn, ?&e., &c." The hubbub was kept up for sometime, the confusion gaining headway, and the president vigorously rapping with a "hickory stick on the table. MfSIC HATS CHARMS. McKeynolds occupied a chair in the middle of the room, standing up,and gesticulating violent ly .although nothing of what he was saving could be distinguished for the general hub-bub; final ly the chair winked to the brass band to strike up and in a few minute* Mclteynold* dried up, but kent his position to "renew his harangue" when tne music stopped. This was noticed and the band received instructions to prolong their strains, which they did, mnch to the disgnstof McKeynolds and his sjmpathizers. At the conclusion of the music three cheers were given for "Sid." Herbert, which were followed at once by three groans. This amusement alter nated for some time, until the crowd ISELLOWKD TII KM SELVES HOARSE. The chair called again for nominations for secretary, and John Thomas Johnson was nom inated. W. H. Brown got the floor and stated that it was impossible to have a fair vote by acclama tion, as be saw men there from the steamboat wharf and all other parts of the city. Here cheer after cheer was given for "Sid." W. Herbert in the rear of the hall. McKeynolds having recovered from the strain of bis last futile efforts to be heard mounted the chair and again commenced beat ing the air. his arms turning around like spokes | in a wagon wheel. Just then music by the i band was called for and the lively McKeynolds | was again compelled to subside. A SECRETARY ELECTED. < When the band stapped the vote was put on .John Thomas Johnson's nomination for sccro tarv, and he was declared unanimously elected. T'he uproar was renewed and the brass band was called in to restore quiet. The band was here complimented by three cheers, and three more were given for the new market-house. Mr. Pearson, secretary pro tern, to the club, here read the constitutiou and by-law* prepared by the committee, and the report was adopted. W. H. Brown here made a motion that all present be allowed to participate in the meet ing, but the chair ruled it oat of order, as this \v as not a mass meeting. Mr. K. T. Bowers submitted RESOLUTIONS, WHICH WERE ADOPTEO: "That it is the duty of all republieans to stand by the action of the central executive committee; and we hereby request our dele gates thereto to support the plan of primary elections, to be held upon the same day In all the districts, believing this to be the only prop er and Just method of deciding nominations; and that any man or faction refusing to acqui esce in or support the nomination of the party is a bolter, and not a republican. That we hear with regret or the formation and movements of the 'Equal-rights League,'of the District of Columbia, and trust that it Is not a correct statement, or, if founded upon Tact, may be speedily abandoned, believing that It will mili tate against the best interests of oar citizens; and farther, that we frown down every attempt that is made to *tlr up discord in our ranks by basely instilling into the minds of the colored voter* of this city the idea that thev are ignored. That we tender to the Board of Public Works our hearty support of Its policy in improving the city, and earnestly urge oar request for an 3ual share of Improvements within the bound* the 21et district, and also that some of the prominent streets in course of improvement in said district, having long been impassable ou that account.be speedily opened and paved. That the republican club of the 21st district hereby tender to the Hon. A. K. Shepherd our thanks for the use of this fine structure, the Eastern market, for the purpose ot holding this meeting; and also do hereby earnestly urge upon the Board of Public Works that thev complete and open it for the uses for which it la designed at the earliest possible moment, thereby con tributing to the material wants and interests of the people upon the Hill." FINALS. Mr. Richard Good hart then came forward by invitation, and made a very sensible speech, counseling harmony and denouncing divisions. At the conclusion the Choral glee club sung a *ong called "The men who stand by u*;" which was loidly applauded. At thi* point two tur bulent men in the crowd were led off to the statiocbouse by Lieut. Austin's police. Breeches followed bv Mr. E. T. Bower*, John Thomas Johnson. Mr. Pearson, and Mike Shiner. Before the meeting closed the chair invited Mr. B. F. Peters, president of the Herbert Tac tion, to come forward and state his view*; but he was not forthcoming, and at 11 o'clock the meeting adjourned. iliatlon of the Twenty-second atrlet Republican Clnb. Last night a meeting of the republican clab of the 22d district was held at Odd Fellow*' Hall, navy vard, for the purpose of reorganiz ing the clnb, and it was largely attended. Mr. Vi . L. Ugwu called the meeting to order. Mr. Cowan was elected toaaporary chairman, and Mr. Francis Wood secretary. Mr. Edwards moved to go into an election for permanent officers which was agreed to, and the following were elected without much opposition: W. L. Cowan, president; John Morgan, viae president; Andrew Neville, second vice president; Edward Casey, treasurer; W. L. Oakey, financial secre tary The club then resolved itself Into a ma** meeting with the same officer* in the ehair, for the purpose of nominating a candidate for the Legislature. Mr. Gates offered a resolution which was unanimously adopted: "That the citizens of the 28d district do cheerfully Indorse the action of our delegate, W. E. Vermillion, as being worthy of our confidence and our respect." DELEGATE VBRMILLIOH KBHOXIHATSO.

At the "Long" committee's session yesterday, after our re|*irt closed, the testimony ot Mr, Lewi* Petree was taken. He Mid: I rented a i house on G street that Iran ooid while I was Its occupant under a deed of trust, a few days be j fore the end of the month. Paid that month's reat to the party that I rented it from. I stayed another month In the house, at the end of which time 1 received two letters; one from Lawyer Hine, >ayiug that I must pay the rent to the Surchaser, nnder the dyd ortrust, and another ?on Lawyer Fendall, saying I must pay the party I rented from. I was willing and anxious fo pay either, but both threatened. The original landlord summoned me; the purchaser told me to pay no attention to it, and he would see me through, which he failed to do afterwards. When the crisis came judgment was taken against me, and Constable Kunmel sent two ofliis sattei 1'tes and carried away a sewing machine, which ?R" f"lly paid for. I was introduced to N. J a 'r'end as ?n honest man, and paid him a fee or *10; also paid him a fee of *16 to replevy said machine, which was the sum it would take. I could not replevy it in rav own name, because my title to the machine was not good, as I owed Mr. Steer *'25 on it. By great pressure and promising to pay all expenses I got Mr. Steer to sign the replevy papers. Constable Kimmell had come very near break ing np this arrangement by offering to p?y Steer the twenty-nve dollars and keeping the machine to himself. Having finally procured the papers. Mr. Miller and my wife called on the marshal to get the machine, but Kimmell knew nothing about it.and refuvd all informa tion nntil Mr. Sharp threateqed him. He had either sold it or loaned it out by the week. However, an officer accompanied my wife to some house on 21st or 22d street, and after a deal of trouble found the machine, and dis covered It liad been so roughly used that since then it has not been worth much, the material found upon it?piece* of thick rough cloth being unsuited to such a machine. Miller rep resented to me that he could recover the re plevy money, which I find he will 1iot do, but put* me oil with execuses every time 1 see him. He gave me so much information about con stables and their doings that I thought it would be bad policy to invest any more money. I suppose I will have to remain a victim between Miller and Kimmell. When constables make presents to lawyer* you cannot expect justice, and that is how it stands In this case; and why It was not prosecuted to a close I can only guess. TO-DAY. I This morning, H. M. C. Danaher appeared, and testlged that Thornton Smith (whose testi mony was published yesterday) placed in his hands in December, 1871, an execution, on which tliere was *?; due, and offered him half if he would collect It. Deponent collected the money, and applied part of it on a judgment against Smith, and the balance to an account against the Abbott estate, but the amount was not sufficient by ?15. Smith knew that he had made the proper application of the funds col lected, but subsequently he called on several lawyers to have him presented, but they re fused. T. J. Bickslcr testified that in August, 1871, Smith placed in bis hands an execution against Chase for #60, saying that he had placedit in the hands or four different constables, but they ""Returned it nulla brma, and agreed to give fV5!f it was collected. Deponent succeeded in collecting the money, and the marshal attached ?*..0 to satisfy a balance of a judgment in the case of Holioway agt. Smith, and deponent took the receipt of Kimmell as agent for Hollo way therefor. This, with his fee of *25 and the balance, S10, made up the total. Smith ap peared .satisfiedwhen tliereceipt was shown him with the exception that he professed to believe that he (de]>onetit) put up the job?that U, had arranged for the Holioway attachment.

I notice in to-day's wot' of voor Tslnable paper that oar Board of Public Works in taking the initiatory stepa toward! building new lire-alarm telegraph lines, Ac-t ami ? few suggestions as to how the work should be done, will, I think, be In place. First of all, I hope that they will use poles for supports, and abandon the use of chimneys altogether, for here or In the latter mode ofsupporting wires, lies the root of many evils. The boxes or trans mitters hare often been blamed for false alarms, while in fact the wires were lying across some tin roof, having blown ofl the chimney brackets, and the current was thus grounded. Again. I have frequently noticed tnat wires running across a roof were used by housekeepers as clothes lines. Under such circumstances of course the wires cannot be expected to work. There may be some objections to the use of poles, but nobody ran deny that they are the only reliable support*. If painted, tbey are not so ?ery "unsightly," a* some persons are trying to make them, besides the wires can then be properly Inspected and repaired. Let them be painted red some ten feet from the ground, and marked ??Fire-alarm telegraph," so that every body will know them, and then let the Legisla ture pass an ordinance imposing a heavy fine upon persons interfering or injuring wires or poles, holding, also, parents responsible for allowing their children to fly kites in the streets, as the latter become frequently entangled with the wires, causing much trouble Tn rainy weather by forming connection between the several wires on a pole. The old crank boxes should also be abolished and automatic ones purchased instead. To show what other cities nave expended in building reliable fire-alarm telegraph lines. I will just mention that the city of New York paid S850,00<> for refitting her old "worn-out lines" a tew years ago. They put up 2,650 poles, 625 miles of wire. 2,500 feet sub marine cable, and 549 additional automatic street boxes, and the result was that her lire alarm system is in this respect ahead of any other af present to be found in the United States. Thesum appropriated by our Legisla ture (I think P80.000) will hardly be found ad equate if the work is to be done well and every part of our rapidly-spreading city to be in cluded in the network of wires. Our citizens seem to be unanimous on this question, and de sire to see a first-class system that will do credit to the city. Hoping that these lines will meet the eves of the " powers that be," 1 remain yours, tie., W. T. B. Washington, August 27, 1R73. [The appropriation by the legislature was only (45,000, an amount inadequate, it Is feared, to give us such an enlarged and improved sys tem with the requisite number of alarm boxes and alarm strikers as the growing needs of the District cities require; but it Is hoped that the Board of Public Works, who are entrusted with the work, will, with their usual public spirit and forethought, give us the best system and enough boxes and strikers for the protection of the property of our citizens, even if they have to rely upon a deficiency bill to do so. It Is a work that should be thoroughly done, or not at all.?Ed.J MB. F.ditor?Sir .?

A Tebriulb Cam?The handsome bar keeper at one of our hotels has unwittingly betn the cause of a serious atte mpt to commit a terrible crime, by one of the waiting maids of he establishment. For some time she haa felt the tender emotion of love lor htm ripening in her jouthful bosom, and (it Is said) has not kept from htm the flattering secret. But he. like an honest fellow as he is, has given her no encouragement, but coldly frowned upon her affectionate demonstrations. This morning, driven at last to the verge of madne**, she made a desperate attempt to kill him with a carving knife. So furious was her frenzy that the whole hou*e was aroused, and it toot seven of the clerks, porters and boarders to secure her. But for the young man'sdoor being locked, she would probably have accomplished her object. Body Identified?ft Is rumored that the body which floated ashore near the mouth of I'asspatanzy creek a few days ago has been Identified as that of Ireorge Shepard. who was supposed to have been drowned while fishing off Jones' point, during the latter part of July, and on whose life the Insurance policies fonnd'in the possession of hi* brother Joseph, now in Jail weretaken out. The description given by Mr. C. G- McClelland, of Chattrrton, answers to that of Shepard: "He was 23 or 30 years of age, about 8 feet 8 Inches high, dark hair and sandy whiskers." From the appearance of the body It had been floating In the river some time. A Probable Impostor?A genteel looking white woman, hailing from Washington, ap jieared at the station house this morning.
