Eng lish & Co, died on Fiilay last at Rawley Springs, Virginia, which he had recently visit ed in the hope of recuperating his health. He had been at the Springs since the 12th ot July, and was improving iu health when an exposure about two weiks ago produced an at lack of typhoid, ending fatally notwithstanding the skillful efforts of three physicians. He was en tirely conscious at the time of his death, and quietlv arranged his business affairs. He was s member of the Baptist Church, and held a prominent position io the membership of the Seventh Baptist Church (Rjv. Dr. Brantley's) of this city. The remains of the deceased were brought to Baltimore oo Saturday evening by his brother, Johu A. English, and removed to his late residence oo the Frederick avenue, Baltimore county, from whence the funeral will be held this morning.

C., subse quently settling in Baltimore about the close of the war and establishing the house of English, Paul & Co., which was chaugod in late years to that of Z English & Co., his partners being Col.

Some months ago, Mr. Eoglish'6 health becoming impaired, he went to Rawley Springs, Va., to recuperate, if possible. He gradually grew weaker, however, and oo Saturday last he died, aged forty-seven. At the closing of the war of the rebellion be came to this city from Alexandria, Va., and had been engaged io business here ever since. ?American. Mr. Z -ph English, of the 6rm of Z. Eoglish & Co., wholesale grocers, No. 8 Commerce street, died yesterday, io the forty-seventh year of his age, at Rawley Springs, Virginia, whither he had gone in hopes of benefitting his failing health. Mr. English came to this city, shortly after the late war, from Alexan dria, Va., where he had been engaged for years io the same business. Since his removal to Baltimore his courteous manners, energetic business principles and upright conduct have combined to gather round him a host of friends, among whom his death will cause deep and heartfelt regret.?News.

B Z icharias, which braoch of trade they energetically and success fully pursued. ? Sun. Oyster Law.?A case of some interest to oyster dealers was heard before Justice Pad gett, this morning. It has been the practice of the steamers plying od the Potomac to bring oysters to this city in barrels, which have been usually taken by the restaurants and oyster ?dealers, the only profit to the steamers being ?the freight of 25 cents per barrel. The State inspection laws require that all oysters bought -or sold in the State shall be measured io the pre scribed half or bushel measure. V esseis bringiug oysters to this market are required to conform to this law, but steamers bringing oysters in ^barrels have heretofore evaded it, by selling by (the barrel. Captain Henry Beach, who duriog the sea son is engaged in the freighting of oysters in his vessel, wishing to subject all other persons to the same regulations as are imposed upon him, sued out a warrant to day before Justice Padgett, charging the officers of the steamer Sue with an infraction of the Inspection laws, by seliing by the barrel,instead of by the bushel, and the parties having been summoned,the evi dence was heard and the case dismissed, on the grounds: Frist, that the section of the Act requiring oysters to be sold by the bushel, pre ferred no penalty for its violation; and second, that the information against offenders must be filed with the Commonwealth's Attorney by the State Inspector, and as there is no State, but ooly a City Inspector here, the information was not formal. The warrants were dismissed at the cost of the plaintiff, and steamers will continue, as heretofore, to briog oyesters io barrels for the accommodation of their patrons. Wedding ?To morrow evening at 6 o'clock Christ Church will be the scene of a brilliant wedding, the parties to which are Stratford Fendall, esq., a popular youog member of the Washington bar, and Mrs. Molioaro, nee Rob inson, of Baltimore, the widow of an officer of the regular army. The ceremony will take place promptly at the hour named, and will be performed by Bishop Jobns, of the Episcopal Church, who was a olass-mate of the groom's father, assisted by Rev. Dr. McKirn, the pas tor of Christ Church. The bride elect is well known io the District, Virginia, and Maryland (of which latter -State she is a native) for her piquancy and beauty, while the groom is a son ?of the late William Y Fendall, and favorably known throughout the city as a youog gentle man of brilliant talents and high culture who ?haa sometimes been a welcome contributor to ?the columns of the Suoday Herald. The mar jriage ceremony over, the couple will leave on the 8 p. m.
