THURSDAY MORNING-APRIL 19, 1866. CITY AND SUBURBAN. MrirfABT lysTiTiTE.—The Board of Visitors of Vina institution were to Lave met yester day in the Senate Chamber in the Capitol. Some four qi live member* were present—not enough to constitotoa quorum. They will meet to-day at 10 o’clock. Jasks River ani> Kanawha Canal Company.— The Board of Directors of this company are now holding a sewiion. There is nothing before them other than the ordinary current business. It was expected that a communication would have been received from the French company by tlie last mail from Europe, hut noue has come. Police Arrests.—Hally Parker, negro, charged with stealing one stove. Patrick Shay, charged with stealing iron, valued at #'>*», from the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad Company. Temperance. —An enthusiastic admirer of aqua pure sends us the following ‘ The state Council of Virginia will meet in Waynesboro’. Augusta county, on tlie‘24th of this month. The subordinate Councils should not fail to send ileleestes. tn interesting and profitable meeting is expected. Let the friends give the Tem perance movement, unmixtJ with politicv, a long push forward. The times demand it. • hir sober judgment ia needed in times like these. Forbid that drunkenness should be added to our ealamities so woefully accumulated.” Fire.—t*ti Tuesday night, about twelve o'clock. - Bowen ,V Page’s bakery, near Rocketts, was burned to the ground. The building was about 26x60 feet, two stories high, and was joined to the dwelling house occupied by Mr. Page. The dwelling occu pied the front of the lot, the bakery the reur. and some of the parties who first discovered the lire say that it originated in a stable and shed in a lot ad joining. while other* maintain that it broke out in tlie rear of the bakery, near an alley. Mr. Page's family (he was in the city himself, at another estab lishment of his.) were roused up by tlie neighbors, and the dwelling house was saved, bat in removing | the furniture and stock some thieves took advantage of tlie confusion and helped themselves liberally.— There was work done in the bakery that night or the preceding day. The shed in which some parties say the tire broke out is on the lot of a Mrs. MiWon. who keeps a groccy or groggesy. and whose pre mises had been attempted to Is* fired some two or three times. That the fire was the act of an incen diary there is no doubt, and suspicion rests on a ne gro who was recently brought Iteforc a county ma gistrate on charge of stealing from Mr. Page's store, but who was acquitted for want of sufficient testi lnonr. Tlie bakery was insured for sixteen hundred dollars. ___ Drs. Moore and Hopson.—The Rev. Dr. Moore, of the First Presbyterian Church, of this city, will leave about the first of May for Europe. The fact that the trip, in addition to the pleasure it will afford him. promises to materially improve his health, will reconcile his congregation to the separation. We also hear it rumored that the Rev. Dr. Hopson, of Sycamore (Disciples) Church, of this city, has an itk '** accepting a call to a tield of labor in the yfest We trust that such is not the case, as the church beR under his ministry has largely increased in numbs >n* and >nhueni:e. and so |)opular is he with those outs b'8 membership that we hazard nothing in s.
