" 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
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
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
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

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 ;

One-half reserved to Fremont A Co. - 5,000/100

Raymond, New York Times, going it

National Era, going it blind * - J 50,000
Other papers in other cities come in tor tlieir
yliare of this Mariposa stock pro rata. 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

and land-brokers? How phpuld such a man be

by these leading presses, if there were np moneyed
