The following opinion of tho Corporation Attorney upon the memorial of St. Mary's Church was read aud received : Alexandria, Va., Feb. 27. 1894. Tu the Honorable City Council of Alexandria : Whereas, By resolution dated Xovember 28, 189:1, the'mcmorial of St. Mary's Church congregation in referonco to tho opening of south I'itt street was referred to me to ascer? tain and report. First. When and how the streets passing through Ycates'sGarden were dedicated or condemned to public use. Second. When and how such dedication, if made, was accepted by the corporation of Alexandria. I have given this matter a great deal of consideration, and find that Pitt street has been been dedicated to the public use as far south as Jefferson street. The dedication was made by the owners ofthe property selling oil' lots and describing them as binding on I'itt street. This of itself is sufficient dedication and no acceptance by the City Council was necessity. I find that Pitt street south of Jefferson street has never been dedicated for public use. Every conveyance of this prop? erty from its original cewners down to the presenttimo inclndes the street. It is true that from the expressions and recitals in the deeds there was an evident intention to dedi? cate this portion of Pitt street to the public use, but the records du not disclose that this intention was ever carried out. Very truly yours, * Samuel <;. Bukst. Corporation Attorney. "The resolution that the (Vmmitteo on Streets confer with tho officials of the R. & D. and W.S. R.

Clerk More Oyster Troubles.?A dele? gation from Somerset county waited on Governor Brown at Annapolis, Md.. yesterday to seek redress through the executive of Maryland for recent cap? tures of Maryland oyster vessels in Tan? gier Sound by the Virginia authorities. Hardly had these proceedings taken place before Commander Howard, of the oyster navy, received a telegram from Marion, Somerset county, Md., asking him to come down at once, as they were having another oyster war, this time in the Annamessex. The telegram was signed by Jno. S. Thomas, deputy commander in charge of the Helen Baughman, located in PJastern bay. Gov. Brown immediately ordered Commander Howard to proceed to the scene of trouble in the steamer Gov? ernor Thomas, which is armed with breech-loading cannon and breech-load? ing rifles. The ship has on board a good stock of ammunition. It was not kuown to what extent the new warfare had developed, but it is known that great excitement exists among all the Somerset oystermen. When we take into consideration the quality of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup and read from the pages of its history the record of the myriads of cures it has effected in the past fifty years, all veri? fied and attested by innumerable un? solicited certificates from reliable citi? zens all over this broad land, we cease to wonder that it has become the stand? ard remedy in every household.
