Hcspect to the Ute John W. Maury.?Tb? two boards of City Councils were convened, yes terday afternoon, in pursuance of a call by the Mayor of Washington. The following communication wan read in each, chamber: Mayor's Office, Ftb. 3, 1855. To the Board of Alder mau and Board of Common Council: Gentlemen : I have requested you to assemble to-day lor the purpose ot officially communicating to you the denih of ex-Mayor John VV. Maury, in order to afford you an opportunity to pay that pub lic tribute to his memory whi.-h is eminently due for his long, faithful, and valuable services in the councils of the city, and as its former chief magis trate Many of us have been associated with him in the councils, have enjoyed the pleasure of inti mate intercourse with him, and been honored with hia friendship. There are tew who have had belter opportunities of forming an estimate of his char acter and services, public and private, and I am confident by none will bis loss be more deeply deplored. I shall be ready to unite with you in those sen timents of respect which you may deem to be due to bis memory. Respectfully, JOHN T. TOWERS, Mayor. Messrs. Iiill, Magruder, Pepper, and Houston, in the Board of Alderman, and Messrs. Busey and Duncanson, in the Board of Common Council, severally delivered addresses suitable to the oc casion. The following resolutions were reported from the joint committee of the two Boards, and unan imously adopted: Whereas, we have learned with profound sor row and regret of the decease of our lellow-towns man, John W. Maury, formerly Mayor of thia City; therefore be it Resolved, That we tender to the family of the deceased the heartfelt condolence of the authori ties and people of this city. Resolved, That we sympathize with the people of ibis city in the mournful sensaiions caused by his untimely decease. Resolved, That the Mayor, Board of Aldermen, Board of Common Council, and officers of thia Cor poration, will attend the funeral in a body, and wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty day*; and that the people of this city be requested to unite with us in these melancholy ceremonies. Resolved, That the Mayor be respectfully re quested 10 communicate a copy of these resolu tions to the family of the deceased, and cause the same to be printed in the city papers. The Reception at the President's House, on Friday evening, was, as heretofore, largely at tended. To say that there were many handsome faces, would be but the repetition of a general remark. Fashion was exhibited in and on vari ous forms ; plainly indicating that the modiste had been consulted in many instsnces; and, too, vari ous tastes were discernible, from the most simple arrangement of costume (we refer to the ladies) to the most elaborate; from the plainly arranged hair to that adorned with ribands, and feathers, and flowers; from the high-yoked frock to the low; or, it may be, in the latter cases, the gar ments slipped Irom the shoulder fastenings! There was no instrumental music, as on a former occasion. The East Room was too warm for comfort; there being a dry and oppressive tem perature from a subterranean furnace. However, the atmosphere added a ruddy hue to many a cheek, and ihus served the purpose of beauty. In the glsre r>f gaslight, the company prome naded. They who were not present to be seen, had the satisfaction of seeing those who attended the reception to be admired, if we may be so bold as to venture the assertion. If beauty ia worthy of admiration, it should certainly be exhibited to the best advantage. Intelligence, cultivated minds, on such an occasion, is a commodity not especially in demand. We say nothing as to the gentlemen, further than ibis?that it was evident they had not " fixed " themselves to be contemned. The pride of appearance is not altogether discouraged by the male sex! The while servanta in the vestibule were kept busy receiving hat*and over-ooats, forming a kind of breastwork with the garments; and when those were returned, in succession, to their respective owners, we were reminded of a wholesale cloth ing establishment, with its five or six clerks, neatly dressed, and performing their duties with marked politeness. The reoeption was evidently of an agreeable cbaracfer; an innocent recreation: Citisena and atrangers, distinguished and otherwise, alike par ticipated in the promenade, and M strutted their brief honr" in the splendidly furnished East Room. Temperance Convention.?Wo publish, to day, a copy of the proceedings of the temperance convention, recently held in this city. The object of tho delegates ie to procure the enactment, by Congress, of a Prohibitory Liquor Law, to ope rate in the District of Columbia; and they have begun their movements to effect this object. Their work, however, judging from pretest pros pects, will be like that of the doomed man Sisy pbna, in the mythology, rolling a huge stone up a hill! Tho efforts of temperance men, unfortu nately, have accomplished but little good in this community; and the large number of drinking establishments, licensed and unlicenaed, is a la mentable proof of the fact. We wonld encour age rather than condemn all properly arranged plena for the reformation of drnnkarda and the suppression of the evil of intemperance, but we are of the opinion that e Maine law is, under present circumstancea, impracticable in thia Dis trict i in other words, even should one be passed, it could not be enforced, unleee, perbapa, by aa armed police, for, as long aa there ie aa appetite for strong drink, the thirsty will obtain the meana for ita gratification. Justice Long Delayed. ? Twenty or more years ago, four laboriag men preferred a claim agaiaet the General Government for work per formed on the Cumberlsnd road. Their bill hav ing been disputed, the subject was referred to General Gratiot for arbitration, and he awarded, et that time, one hundred and forty-eix dollars as due to tbem. It is known thst two ot those la borers bsve since died; another has wandered away to porta unknown, and the fouith resides ia Zaneaville, Ohio, a very poor man. Thie lest named lact was ststed to the House yesterday, ia connection with the reporting of a joint resolution appropriating thirty-six dollars and llAy cents? one-fourth of the amount of the award?for his relief; aad it was passed. Even this small sum will be a comfort to tho old msn in his poverty. Justice hss ir. his case been exceedingly slow, but sure, though it will never overtake his former companions. The Fair,?The pfficers of the Metropolitan Mechanics' laslitnte were basy, yesterday, in re receiving many articlea of utility and fancy, for exhibition during the approaching fair at the Smithsonisa Institution. Judging from the pre liminary prepsrstions, snd the number of offerings already entered, the fair will bo of a highly inte resting chsracter. That it will be handsomely pa tronieed, we havo no doubt. Private Clslasants.?The House of Jlepre?en tatives, yesterdsy, passed thirty-seven private hills, which were considered the dey before ia Commit too of the Whole. r Robert Helton?Iron Hill luu been the scene oi considerable excitement during the pn| week, end, indeed, we find it Mill on the inference.
