Police HegulatiuiiR.?The regulations for the
government of the police department oft he cor
|mn-ation of Washington, prepared by the Mayor,
and which await the approval of the city coun
cils before they can become operative, have just
been published.
1 he preamble properly states that ".the great
object to be attained in the establishment of a po
lice is the prevention of crime, and to this end
every e/ibrt should be directed; nevertheless
every person violating any of the laws should be
promptly prosecuted and punished. This should
be constantly kept in mind by every jiolice officer,
and they must endeavor to distinguish themselves
by such vigilance and activity as may render it
difficult for any one to commit u crime within
their respective districts, and go unpunished."
In order to enforce this principle, the rules pre.
scribe, first: The duties of the police magistrates,
audnexi those of the chief of police, and of his sub
ordinates; the last having li fenced otT" for them
narrow and straight ways, a deviation from which,
unless under extenuating circumstance*, will be
visited with prompt dismissal.
These regulations compromise fifty-four sections;
11 length which precludes their gratuitous inser
tion in our columns.
The public, however, may be interested to learn
that neither a police magistrate, nor a police C0I1.
? table. Khali charge or receive any fee, or com
pensation other than his legal salary. With re
gard to the latter, an exception is made of such re
ward as may from time to time be publicly offered
by the authorities of any other municipal corpora
lion, or State, or by the authorities of the United
Stales. The chief, too, is prohibited from charg
ing or receiving aiiy fee or compensation other
than his salary, nor shall he receive any present or
reward, unless with the consent, in writing of the
Mayor.
The " headquarters" of the police to be at the
office of the chief of police, in the City Hall,
.very police officer shall devote his whole time
and attention to his business as such, and shall
not be engaged or follow any other business or
calling. He "must be civil and respectful to the
public, and upon all occasions execute his duty
with good temper and discretion, and must not at
nny time make use of violent, coarse, or insolent
language, or use any weapons except in cases of
obvious necessity." While on duty he '? shall not
use aiiy kind of intoxicating drink, or enter any
tavern or place where intoxicating drinks may be
sold, nor enter any house, except in the immediate
execution ol his duty, nor stay in or about the of
fices of the police magistrates, except when re
quired to be there in the discharge of some duty "
The last section reads: "Sobriety in every police
? officer being considered absolutely essential, a sin
gle instance of intoxication will be promptly fol
lowed by dismissal."
The rulers are not altogether popular with the
police officers, on account of their excessive and
in several respects unnecessary stringency. Even
the luxury of a soothing " smoke" is prohibited in
a guard or lock-up house, or in the office of the
chief of police; notwithstanding tobacco clouds
would often serve a healthful purpose, in fumi
gating the quarters of the vagrant prisoners, espe
cially in midsummer. So far as we know, the
police officers are sober men, and are not, there
lore, disposed either to procure drinks at taverns
or supply themselves from straw-covered pocket
pistols. From our personal observation, extend
ing through a period of twenty years, we have
never known a more intelligent and respectable
force of police officers than those who are now
employed by the corporation.
New Centre Market House.?The commit
tee of the city councils, together with the mayor
of Washington, have selected a plan for a new
centre market, from the twelve or fifteen sets of
drawings which have been offered by artists both
here and elsewhere, in competition for the three
hundred dollar premium.
The councils have yet to pass upon this choice,
which, by virtue of his Office, the mayor will re
commend for their approval.
The plan agreed upon by the committee was
furnished by Mr. Win. H. Ranletf, of New York,
who, if we do not mistake, is the architect and
superintendentof the San Francisco custom-house.
It proposes, we learn verbally, that the entire
( entre Market lot shall be occupied ; the buildings
to be two stories in height, with a bell tower and
dock 011 the Pennsylvania avenue front. An ex
tensive conn for vehicles is a part of the arrange
ment. The lower story to bo devoted almost exclu
sively to market purposes; the upper to the uses of
the Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute, to armo
ries, and offices. On the southeast corner there
are to be watch-house accommodations. The ex
pense of such buildings has not been estimated,
but it is guessed that one hundred and fifty thou
sand dollars could be economically expended in
their erection.
Maryland election.?The returns of the con
test of Wednesday, as published ill the morning:
papers, yesterday, not being complete, much
anxiety was everywhere exhibited in this city,
during the day, to ascertain the exact result?ihe
names of the successful candidates for the popular
suffrages.
We contributed our might towards satisfying
public curiosity, by the issuing of an extra.
Mr. Henry May. formerly of this city, is elected
to Congress, on the democratic ticket. Ilis merits
as n man, eloquence as a speaker, and attainments
ash lawyer, cannot fail to be appreciated in Ihe
national legislature, which, we take pleasure in
stating, he will adorn.
The writer hereof cannot fail to unite his con
gratulations with those who elected Mr. Vnnsant
to a like honorable position. We knew him years
ago when he toiled as a journeyman hatter. In
telligent, honorable, and democratic, his merits
have ever been appreciated by his lellow-citixens
of Baltimore; and this is substantially reiterated
by the vote of Wednesday. And particularly are
we delighted, when we see in this result another
evidence of the glory of our republican institu
tions?the road to honorable distinction open to
ul), irrespective of birth or fortune. "Art well
your part, there all the honor lies.''
Key.and Banner Presentations.?<>11 Wed
nesday evening, the members'of "the Brother
hood of t Union,a patriotic and benevolent
association, together with others, assembled at
Temperance Hall to witness proceedings previ
ously arranged. First in the programme was the
presentation of a golden key to Mr. William 11.
Batim, the treasurer of Washington Circle?Mrs.
Pendleton gracefully performing that office. The
recipient modestly replied, in brief but appropriate
terms. Next, the same lady presented to Wash
ington Circle a beautiful banner?the design re
presenting the rising sun, enclosed in a pictured
wreath of dowers; across tho glittering beams the
word "Brotherhood;" the foundation material
white silk, with gorgeous blue and gold trimmings.
It is said that this Is the gift of ladies. Mrs. Pen
dleton delivered a remarkably chaMe and well
worded address, and was followed in an accepta
ble manner by Miss Bradley, (who resides in Ihe
Seventh ward.) Mr. William F. Austin, on the
part of Washington Circle, returned thanks, and
then proceeded to ?peak to the audience on the sub
ject of "Brotherhood." Aller a doling tide, the
assembly dispersed
Masonic.?The annual communication of the
Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Ancient York
Masons, took place on Tuesday night, when the
following named gentlemen were elected officer*
for the ensuing year: M. W. G. M., William B.
Magruder; M. W. D. G. M., P. H. Hooe; G. S.
W., Joseph W. Nairn ; G. J. W., Y. P. Page; G.
Secretary, C. Frailey; G. Treasurer, Robert
Clarke ; G. Chaplain, ltev. Charles A. Davis ; G.
Marshal, H. H. Heath; S. D., G. Powell; J. D.,
Samuel Cropley ; Grand Tyler, Samuel Jack.
The returns show that the order is iu a nourish
ing condition.
All Omission Supplied.?Our citizens have
seen the poster at the corner of streets and else
where, reading thus: " Wanted, a wife, every
evening by T. Bishop, at Odd Fellows' Hall."?
This popular singer took occasion, recently, to say
that such was not the fact; but that, by an over
sight of the printer, the word '? song "as a preface,
had been omitted.
Congressional Cemetery.?The paragraph in
yesterday's paper, on this subject, was rendered
obscure by the accidental transposition of a single
line. It should have read thus :
"The Vestry of Christ Church having pur
chased additional ground, on the west, for the en
largement of the cemetery, workmen are now en
gaged in improving it for burial purposes. A new
pavement is in the course of being laid on the
north side of the front wall. We trust that these
movements are preliminary to the l?etter care of
the ground vrithin the old enclosure."
Washlugton Navy Yard.?We learn that the
concrete foundation of the new ordnance foundry,
laid under the superintendence of scientilic men,
has been condemned, and that the superstruc
ture will, as a consequence, be erected on piles.
Mr, Bishop's Entertainments.?We were
much pleased lust night to see so large an attend
ance at Mr. Bishop's entertainments. His exhi
bilious are various and very attractive. His good
qualities as a man, nnd his fine talents as an artist,
entitle him to the support of the community. We
wish him a brilliant run.
Ole Bull, assisted by Maurice Strakosch nnd
Adelina Patti, is to give a concert on the 7th inst.
The reputation of these artistes is too great to re

Crossing the Ocean in Mix Uayiu? We have
received a lelter from J. W. Griffiths?the able
nautical architect of the " William Norris," the
steamship which is now building to cross the
ocean in six days?ill which he says, we should
give the formula? tor the opiuinu we have ex
pressed in allowing thin vessel eight and a hall'
days to cross the Atlantic. lie says, " if you will
lc?ok into the matter you will discover that the dis
tance between New York and Galway in aliout
one day's less sailing than to Liver|?ool, and how
could the 'William Norris' l<e entitled to the
broom if she required a* much time to make the
passage as the Collin's steamers in runuiug the
same distance." From the statements which had
been made about this vessel, we understood that
Mr. Norris had said that it would make the voy
age from New York to Liverpool in six days; or
more than four days less than the Collin's steamer*,
wliieh would require an average speed of twenty
one mile!* per hour. To iiiMke the passage to Gal
way from New York in six days, it will require an
average speed of eighteen and threu-fourths miles
per hour. Tho '? William Norris,'1 Mr. Griffiths in
forms us, " will have forty percent.less resistance,
and her load line but one-quarter of that of the
Haltic or Pacific, while the steam power will be as
high.'' The steam power, theiL according to the
tonnage (seven hundred and fifty tons) will be four
times more than that of the Collins steamers, with
forty per cent, less resistance lieside.
There is certainly a very great difference of
opinion among engineers res|>ectiug the ratio of
power required for every increment of a steam
ship's speed. Some maintain ? Scott Russell
among the number?that it only requires a quad
ruple iucrease of power to double the speed, that
is, according to the square ; while others maintain
that it requires an increase of eight tunes the pow
er?the cube?to double the speed. According to
the first formulae, the " William Norris" will be
able to make the voyage to Livcr|>ooI in five days.
To make a voyage of six days, this new steamship
will have to use more than half her tonnage of
coal, namely, 433} tons?or over 71 tons i?er daj*.
There are so many items to be taken into consid
eration in calculating the probable tiiue iu which
the " William Norris'* will make the voyage across
the Atlantic, that we anticipate an addition to our
stock of information by this vessel's performance,
and await the result to confirm or confute the pre
eonceived opinion* we have expressed?opinions
which have been founded ou some experience and
observation. If engines of six horse-power to the
ton were placed in a ship of the same size as the
Atlantic, we certainly would have far greater
hopes of such a steamer making the voyage in six
days tiiau such a small vessel as the " William
Norris;" the wave resistance is much greater in
proportion to a vessel of small than one of large
tonnage.
The swiftest boats ou the North river, when
urged to their greatest running speed, never go
faster than twenty miles per hour.

Attempted Suicide. -Oil Sunday evening a

the rirer. Ah the boat was being fastened |o lier
moorings, the captain overheard oneofthe females
exclaim, "1 have stood it Ion? enough," and,
throwiii^ aside her shawl, rushed to the edge of
the platform with the evident intention of precipi

her and prevented her from consummating her
rash purpose. A young man, stepping up to his
assistance, the young lady said, "leave me, sir,

Application of Electricity to Weaving*?
An iin|>ortant improvement has recently been an
nounced in Italy, consisting of the application of
electricy to the Jacquard loom, uniting greater
simplicity with economy. The inventor of this
method is Signor Honclli, the general director of
the Sardinian telegraph. It is described as fol
lows :
111 the Jacquard loom, the figures arc produced
by a movement on a pedal operated by the weaver
himself, instead of employing children, as in the
old way, to draw the threads under the loom.
By the application of electricity, however, the use
of complicated mechanism, of cartoons, and in
fact, of machinery almost altogether, is entirely
avoided, uud the expense greatly reduced. The
threads are raised by a pedal, and by means of a
fine copper wire are subjected to a current of
electricity which docs the work at once. The
necessary steps to procure a patent for his inven
tion in Europe and the United Stales have been
commenced, and as soon as they are completed
the electrical loom will be exhibited to the public
at Turin.

Rescued from Infamy.?On Sunday night, a
girl named Emma Thompson, about fourteen
years of nge, applied for board at a house of infa
my, in Mercer street, kept by a woman who.
through some motive only known to herself,
declined receiving her, and guve information to
Captain Turobuli, of the eiglith ward police, who
dispatched officer Payne to bring her lo the station
house, when it was ascertained that her parents
reside in Philadelphia, and that she had absented
herself from their roof without their consent. A
passage for Philadelphia was procured for her by
Captain Turnbull, and he saw her snfely on her
journey yesterday morning. She expressed sor
row for the course she had pursued, and seemed
anxious to return home.?N. Y. Sun.
(irlnnell's Arctic Expedition.?Letters have
been received from England, announcing the ar

to the head water* of Smith ? sound. Cnpt. Ingle
field, with the screw steamer Phoenix, with stores
for Sir Edward Belcher's squadron,'reached Uper
navik three days after Dr. Kane's departure, and
reports that Dr. Kane had secured the services of
Peterson, the Esquimaux interpreter, who was
with Penny on a former voyage. Capt. Inglefield
states that all were as well and prosperous as pos
sible.
Dispatches and letters from Dr. Kane, officers,
and crew, may shortly be expected by way ol Den
mark.
Bad Instruction.?In the case of the woman
and her daughter who were arrested a few days
since, the former for inducing her daughter and
another child to nick pockets, and the latter for
committing petit larcenies ot that nature, an ex
amination has been had before the mayor of New
York, which resulted in the woman being loeked
up for trial, in default of $1,000 bail, and her
daughter being committed in default of bail to the
amount of $500. Nearly all the articles which had
been stolen and secreted at the house of the woman
have been identified by the parties from whom they
were stolen, and restored lo them.
Oliver Wendell Holmes delivered the first
of a series of lectures before the New York Mer
cantile Association, on Fridny evening, 2Sth nit.
The Mirror says : " The subject of the letter was
the poet William Wordsworth, of whom Coleridge
usea to say that it ' made him happy to know that
Wordsworth lived.' The distinguished lecturer,
after a witty introduction, proceeded to sketch and
analyze the character and poetry of his subject
with a master hand. His criticisms were sharp,
and. in the main, just; and ho closed with an orig
inal poem of his own, that has more wit, pathos
and beauty, than any equal number of lines that
Wordsworth ever wrote.
Frightful Scene at an Execution.?Thomas
Board, who was convicted of the murder of the
Barbor family in Virginia, was executed at Rich
mond on Tuesday. When the trap was knocked
from under him, the rope broke, and the unfi 'rui
nate man fell heavily to the ground, Much ex
citement followed. The sheriff finally readjusted
the rope, and the criminal was again placed on
the platform. He seemed to be perfectly frantic,
and jumped off the platform. Another scene of
intense excitement ensued. The prisoner was
again secured, and the sentence of the law fully
carried out. _
New Fire Arm.?C. W. Bontgen, of Newark.
N. J., has invented a breech-loading pistol, on
which he has applied for ft patent. The improve
ments consist in furnishing the revolving laueet or
chamber cylinder, into which the charge is placed,
with a spring, in order that it may fly in the posi

Mysterious Affair*?We have a relation from
a gentlenian 0f Wetael county oi' a singular char
acter, ami give it for what it is worth.
The aifair to which we refer is related to us by
a man of fair intelligence and honest belief.
Some throe years ago, as I he story goes, two
men, named Gamble ami Messer, residing near or
on Peyton's island, started to cross the Ohio river
in a skill'loaded with barrels, aliout sunset. They
were a little tight, but iterhaps not so tight as their
barrels. One barrel fell overboard, and lor fear of
upsetting the sk iff they dragged the barrel to the
shore from whence they started, and Messer,
thinking of some business aliout a mile lielow, as
he re|>orted, went down to attend to it, leaving
Gamble with the skill'. A little boat coming up
about the time, found the skiff capsized, and the
barrels floating. Mcsscr only said that he had leli
Gamble. Some suspicions attached to Messer, but
he was never apprehended. These suspicions
grew out of the fact that he had lx>rrowed money
of Gamble and had given him anoteagaiust a man
as security. During the afternoon previous he had
asked Gamble to give him the note, but was re
fused. A few weeks after the note was presented
to the drawer and paid, for the benefit ot Messer.
Some four months after, a body was found iu
the river, sup|>osed to have been (ramble's, and
the whole matter died away, until some weeks
since, when, as the story goes, since some gentle
men from in and around New Martinsville, with
whom was Mr. Hindinan, a very respectable tav
ernkeeper there, had been across the river to a
husking party. Returning home, they agreed, l?e
fore getting to the river, to have a race, the one
getting there last to pay all ferriage. Mr. H. cut
across a field, and. iu passing through it, he met a
hatless man, who told him that he was Gamble,
had been murdered by Messer for this note, that
his body was buried in such a place, that he must
have Messer apprehended, and he would confess
sufficient circumstances to have him held over to
a circuit court term, where he would be convicted
of murder. Hindman had never seen Gamble;
but it is said he described him*accurately. Mea
ser was apprehended ; circumstances soon trans
Sired that it is thought would serve to convict
lesser, who was to be tried l>efore a call court,
on Saturday last, at New Martinsville. We shall
probably hear the result one of these days. In
the meantime we say nothing more to the reader
than we have heard, and we do not suppose it will
kill anybody but Messer if it is true; and, further,
that we cannot believe in the statement unless we
can lie privileged to have ocular demonstration,
though it is reported that it has had a bad etiect on
frieud Hindman?that he looks as though he had
had a Hong sick/' and could not get over it.

a large majority.
Third District.?Vansant's majority over Pres
ton it 599?the couuty still to be heard from.
Fourth District.?Partial returns give May,
democrat, -132 majority; he will probably be
elected.
Assembly Ticket?The Maine-law ticket is
elected in the city by a large majority.
The vote for t lie oilier officers wan badly cut ii|?.
Harford county has elected the whig ticket by a
majority of 50 to 100. In Frederick district, Ham
ilton, democrat, is elected to Congress.
I.ater.?The following was received by tele
graph at-1 o'clock: The dis|>atch states that, owing
to the vast numlier of candidates, the counting
proceeds very slowly. The returns we have re
ceived lor assembly and other otficcrs are too
imperfect to justify au opinion as to the result
The majority lor Mr. Ligon lor governor will
probably exceed 3,000 in the city, but the majority
for the other democratic Statu officers will not be
so large. Mr. Vansant has 509 majority tor Con
gress in all the wards except the first. Tin
county is yet to hear from, but Mr. Vansant *
election is thought to be secure.
In the-1th district Mr. May is 432 ahead, with
the Pith, Kith, and 19th wards to lieur from. 11m
election is probable by a small majority.
The Maine-law ticket tor assembly and shcritl
has obtained a very heavy vote, and its success in
whole or in part is regarded as very urolmble.
In the few wards Irom which we have returns,
Mr. Bouldin, the independent candidate tor sur
veyor, made important gains upon Mr. Chilfelle,
and the result is exceedingly doubtful.
Moor N. Falls, democratic candidate for com
missioner of public works, and Wm. 11. H. Tur
