LOCAL NEWS.
Senatorial Convention.?It will be seen
by the ootice of the County Conservative Sup
erintendents, published in to-day's Gazette,
that the Senatorial Convention for this District,
is to be held in Sercpta Hall, in this city, on
Tuesday, the 31st of August, at 11 o'clock a.m.
Meeting of the Conservative Commit
tee.?A called meeting of the Ward Superin
tendents of the Conservative party was held
last night, at which all the wards wjre fully rep
resented.
The Chairman stated that the County Super
idtendents bad decidcd to call the Senatorial
Convention to meet in Alexandria on the 31st
day of August.
It was resolved to hold a Convention on the
3lst day of August to nominate two candidates
u represent this county in the Legislature, the
convention to be held immediately after the
adjournment of the Senatorial convention.
After the transaction of much routine busi
ness the meeting adj turned subject to call.
The places for the ward meetings,to elect del
egates to the Conventions, and the hour, will be
decided upon hereafter, and due notice given.
Burning of a Stable.?A frame stable,
one and a-half stories iu height and about 15
by 18 feet, situated on a court equidistant
about 80 feet from Fayette and Queen streets,
was destroyed by fire this morning, between 2
and 3 o'clock.
The stable is on the rear lot of a frame house,
fronting on Queen sircet, occupied by Johu
Sipple, and was rented by Wm. iiccker, whose
horse occupied the stable, the whole property
beinir owued by Anthuuy Dugan.
About 2 o'clock this mornin? John Cole,
who occupies a house on the same court as the
stable, saw flames at the northwest corner, and
hastily dressiug himself, ran to the mouth of
the alley and gave the alarm. The police were
soon there, and the firemen came speedily, but
the light wood frame of the stable was m<re
tinder, .aud was half consumed before the fire
men reached the spot, cieatiug- a bright glare
in the sky, which gave to those at a distance
the impression that the fire wa? quite an ex
tensive one.
Only one engine could be U9ed, the Colum
bia, for want of available water supply, yrt the
skill of the firemen sufficed to confine the
fl.imes to the stable, which was nearly sur
rounded by light frame buildings. Indeed that
entire taction of the town is frame for .-quares,
and to prevent the spread of a confli^ratiou
there would seem almost impossible; yet,
while there was frequent danger, and some of
the houses near by caught, the firemen pre
vented the fire from leaving the confines of
which it was the complete master before they
arrived.
Mr. Keeker's horse was put in the stable last
nig tit, and the door securely fastened. When
the tire was discovered the door was npen and
the horse gone. The animal was found near
the house of its owner. There seems to be no
doubt that the fire was the work of an incen
diary. The court is opeo to ihe street, and
the building could be reached without opening
a gate or scaling a fence. The lots is about
*4oi>. The stable was insured lor $100 at Mr.
?Junney's agency.
A Daring Robbery. - Last eveuing a re
spectable looking man, who represented hitu
M-lt as a railroad oonductor, applied for and ob
tained board at the boarding house of Mr. Win.
Humphreys, oq King street, between Colum
bus aud VVashingioa streets. He was allowed
to occupy part of the room of Mr. Samuel Jef
fer.-on. This morning at an early hour Mr.
fferson miesed his room mate, and on exam
ining his pocket found that his pocket-book,
containing $50, was also gone. Information
was Kiveu at ouce to officer Julius Smith, who
started towards Washington, aud meeting a
wagon pressed it into service, and overtook the
thiol on the road and arrested him. The en
tin sum, one $20 with some smaller notes, was
louud upon his person, and he coolessed the

tending to his business at tho mail-boat whaif,
stw a small boat in the darkness passing the
wharf, and discerned two men in it, but could
not hear ihe sound of the oars. He at once
hailed the boat, aud asked what they had on
board. No answer was given, and Mr. P. sup
posed that it was, perhaps, an early market
boat, aud thought no more of the matter. Soon
afterwards, however, a boat lauded at the Mill
dock with an immense rope hawser on board
w >rth some fifty dollars, which, it was supposed,
had been stolen from the Baltimore and Ohio
barge at Shepherd's, ou the other side of the
river. Two men, John Meeks and John Mor
lisey, were arrested, charged with tho theft,
and the rope was brought to the police station.

New York July 31. ? The Post, in speak
ing ot Andrew Johnson's death, says : He was
a sturdy demagogue, who had run his race.
When we seek for t'hc qualities and achieve
ments by which to crown his memory with
houor we fiud them not in his term as Presi
dent, nor in these later years, but in his noble
course through the dark and dreary winter that
preceded the outbreak of the rebellion. Then,
indeed, his bcariutr was an inspiration to faint
ing hopes and sinkiug hearts. Recalling thoso
days, and forgetting many of the days that
have followed, we can unite with his friends in
laying garlands on bis bier.
The Commercial Advertiser says: In his
death tfie country loses one ot her most loyal
sous. The people of the couutry, however
much they may criticise the folly of some of
his acts, will give him more than this. They
will give tears for the loss of a man who was
always brave to stand fust by his convictions,
aud on his grave they will place garluuds of
patriotism that was often tested aud always
found true.
The Express says: Never abusing a trust,
he has adorned each successive position that he
has filled. In his life he was a true patriot.
