rITY INTELLK i ENCF,
" UiouLT Com win i> a blk.?A petition in before ? ongress for the incorporation of a society to es tablish houses of industry and refuse?the first to save, the second to redeem from crime. The ob ject* will doubtless meet the approbation of the right-minded as being just what is needed. Some regard this an the greatest necessity existing amongst us, and propose to assist the society in purchasing suitable places for preparing those who may be committed to their care for good homes, where their labor is needed, where they will be well treated and instructed, and faithfulness will be encouraged by a fair compensation, to be paid at the end of their term. Courts and juries will be relieved from the painful necessity of so often tending at large those who need restraint, because confinement with hardened criminals will make them still worse. Regarding the trustees as worthy of public confidence, and approving their plan, we hope Congress will grant them a charter, and that thev will find a liberal public encouragement. " N." Highly commendable, indeed ! Just what is needed in Washington. The conservators of the public weal owe this much to the future. The queHtion is, nre the vicious and depraved young of our city to he redeemed and made useful in the future, or are they to be allowed to follow up their wicked courses, corrupting those of their own age with whom they come in contact, and entailing upon society all the ovils flowing from an educa tion of ciime and debauchery? "An ounce of preventive is worth a pound of cure." Take these youths away from the society of the educated thief and burglar, and introduce them into the company of the industrious and moral, learn them good trades, and by the time they are twenty-one years of age, they will have u ceased to do evil and have learned to do well." Criminal Comr.?The court amounted on Wednesday evening with the jury sworn and ready for the trial yesterday of John W. Demaine for larceny in having stolen certain articles the property of Mr. John E. Latham, dry-goods mer chant in the First Ward. The first witness called yesterday morning was Mr. Latham, who proved the losa of three pieces of calico, five pieces of de laine, several pieces of Irish linen, bleached cot tons, a large quantity of tilk handkerchiefs, rib ands, and sewing silk, his whole loss being from $400 ty $500. The property recovered by him he valued at S<9ti. Thes<^ article were stolen from him on the night of the '24 th of March hut. They wore found by officer Handy partly in and under the honse occupied by Ray and Croggin and part ly in possession of * young man named Charles Steele. It was proven tiitt Steele got them fiom one Harvey Belt, who in his turn gpt them from the prisoner Demaine. The testimony as to character adduced the day before was repeated, and instructions were asked by confine), the desired effect which was to re duce the crime from stealing to the receiv ing of stolen goodtt. Mr. Key urged that the finding of the good* on Demaine laid on him the burden of accounting for their coming into his possession ; as he had made no eftort to show this, the law held him as the fe? lonious taker. The Court sustained this view of Mr. Key. Messrs. Svvann and Wharton addressed th? jury for the defence, Mr. Key replied, and the jury, af ter nearly three hours deliberation, brought in a verdict of guilty. 4?hn W. Demaine was then put upon trial on a third ?fcarge of larceny upon the goods and chat tels of Mr. Geo. W. Hinton on the 19th of October last. When wrested for this on the 8th of April and confronted with Mr. Ilinton at the watch house, the latter immediately recognised the pan <atocn* then on the person of Demaine as having been made in his (Hinton's) store for acertaiu cub iomer whose name lie stated, and on examination that customer'* name was actually found written on the watch-pocket. Brides this, a vest, marked " John Espey, October, 1865," was found in De niable'* bed-ioom ; which vest was also made by Mr. Hinton, and the name written on it by him. A pair of pantaloons and a silk umbrella, found in the same chamber, were also identified by the same as bis property. At the time of the preliminary examination be fore the magistrate, Demaine charged Bailey with having sold him the above articles, which Bailey instantly anil before Demaine's face denied. The prisoner's counsel, Mr. Stone, made every effort ror his client by way of argument and the moving of instructions to the juryand the other counsel, Messrs. Swan and Wharton, made considerably lengthy addresses. Mr. Key replied, and the jury in a very few minuted returned with a verdict of guilty. We hear that there are eighteen more indict ments against this unhappy young man. In the course of the sitting the court called up Wm. D. Bell, convicted a day or two ago of an ag gravated assault on Dr. Henry Haw, and pro nounced sentence on him of two months' imprison ment in the county jail, and a fine of $30. The other person, Edmund J. Ellis, implicated in the same matter, failed to present himself in court, as ordered, to receive sentence, and his recognisance was accordingly forfeited. Biddy Macnnmara, for an assault on another wo man, was likewise fined $10.?Nat. Intel. Eiur.? Last evening, about half-past eight o'clock, a fire broke out in one of the five frame houses at the. corner of Thirteenth and L streets, by which the wholo five wero destroyed. Three were owned, as we loam, by Mr. Cooper, carpenter, residing on Twelfth street, aud two by a worthy colored man, named James Thomas. The fire originated in one of the new frame house*, and was doubtless the work of an incen diary. A man, named Thomas Steele, was, we fear, seriously injured at this fire. He was standing upon a ladder, endeavoring ta enter a window in the second story, and, being blinded by the smoke, made a misstep and fell to tha ground. He was carried away upon a shutter. Anotbkr.-?Soon after the above fire was extin guished, Sanies were discovered in the attic of the building on Seventh street, near the corner of Pennsylvania avenue, known as ike " Steamboat Hotel," in the occupancy of Mr. Davidson. The firemen were quickly on the ground, and the Canal near at hand affording a good supply of water, the building was saved, with the loss of a portion of the roof and of the attic story. The furniture of the house was, of course, considerably Injured by hasty removal and by being deluged with water. Packets.?A now line of packets has been put on the route between Alexandria and New York. Interments.?The Alexandria Gazette of to-day says, there have been fewer interments in the grave-yards of this place this summer, than in the same number ol months at the same season for sev eral years past. The health,of Alexandria is a subject of general congratulation. Pcbi.ic Schools.?In the proceedings of the Public Schools, published in yesterday's Organ, in the vote of thanks given to the President and others for their assistance in the exercises at the puMic anniversary, tho name of Mayor Magroder was unintentionally omitted. It affords us plea sure to acknowledge the zeal manifested by our Mayor in the welfare of the Public Schools, and the mover of the resolution assures us that his name was omitted in the printed proceedings by a mere oversight. We request the daily papers which have published the proceedings to notice this. New Orleans, commercially, appears to be grow ing very rapidly. The domestic exports to foreign and coastwise ports, for the fiscal year just closed, amounted to $110,853,436, %hich is an increase over the year euding the 80th June, 1855, of $26, 681,010. The increase in exports to foreign coun tries for the year reaches the extraordinary sum of $24,859,411, or within a few hundred dollars of $25,000,000, and an increase over the great year of 1858 of $12,749,839. The domestic exports from New Orleans exceed those of New York for the same period of time. They are given as fol lows: New Orleans, $80,547,968; New York, $75,026,244 ; or over five millions greater from New Orleans than from New York. This does not ? : ; look like New Orleans losing her commercial pro* per it.v, iu consequence of railroadH over the South aud West diverting trade to other Atlantic porta. From the Cleveland Plaiudealer. Bennett, Beecher, Greeley, Webb. The Mariposa claim is at the bottom of all this furor and fusionism of the New York preachers and press for Fremont. There is no doubt of it. The celebrated stock-jobbing firm of " Palmer, Conk, k Co," New York, ,is composed of Cook, Palmer, aud Fremont Nobody denies this.' Their principal stock in trade is the " Mariposa claim," although the firm have other land claims id Cali fornia to a large amount. Although this MaripoM claim has been hurried through <yOngre#s and the Departments, and settled so fir as the title is con cerned, vet it is well known that possession cannot be got from the indignant deu'xens now reposing on that claim, aud probably will not be without bloodshed. It is said that California!)* look upon said claim as a humbug, and they do not care about installing in that State a system of landlord and tenantry like unto the patroon estate in New York. It is supposed to conuin untold riches in gold mines. It is estimated to be worth from eight to ten million* of dollarI; that is, if peaceable possession can be obtained. Of course, if Fremont is elected President, with power to fix the heads of depin tments, and be commander-in-chief of the army and navy, all questions about this grant will be quieted. He can afford to give one-half his interest in it to secure this result, and he has, no doubt, agreed to do that same. How is it that Greeley, who was a Seward man, Bennett, who was a George Law man, and Webb, who was anythiug but an Abolitionist, should all jump Jim Crow aud go fot Fremont?1 How is it that Buechcr, the divine, should suddenly see, as did Saul of Tarsus, a light from Heaven shining upon him, directing him to reverse the preachings aud practices of a religious life, and go for rifles aud revolutions ? These babblers are all bought?bought with a price?and here is no doubt the consideration ; Mariposa claim, represented by stock estimated worth - - - $10,000,tMMj One-half reserved to Fremont A Co. - 5,000/100 The balance distributed as follows : Bennett, in consideration of the Her ald's support r ? ? p - '290,000 Bcecher, for enlisting his paper and the churches - - - . * 360,000 Webb asks in stock ....

A large fund is of course reserved for other electioneering purposes, such as " I^iycs of Fremont," sold for a shilling, songs, speeches, etc., distributed iu car loads throughout the country. Dot's not this look possible, yea, highly proba ble ? Is not Mr. Fremont the largest land specu lator in the world ? Hu \i$ not been to Europe to raise money upon this stock * Is ho not the land partner of Palmer, Cook, & Co., aud does he not reside In Hew Yoik among these stock-jobbers and land-brokers? How phpuld such a man be thought of for the Presidency, much less supported by these leading presses, if there were np moneyed Mariposa consideration* it) flit) case? Let him who is wisest penetrate thiu mystery deepest, and he will find gold at the bottom of ijt all. " "" ?Mwiow'iyiji.tM'i' GRAND EXCURSION! or .
