A CONSTABLE SHOT. .4 H'nmnn f.'nes for One Uublipn TTItlt a Shot-Gun. Constable C. AVT. M.Hubbell yesterday, in attempting to eject Mrs. J. J. Sowders. whooccu pied rooms in house C22 Pennsylvania avenue as a subtenant of Messrs. F. Brinkman A Co., eigar dealers, for non-payment of rent, was shot in the thigh by that doughty female with a shot-gun land of peas. Officer Byrne arrested Mrs. Sowders. and she was arraigned in the Police Court on the chargo of assault and battery with intent to kill. As Mr. Hnbhell was not able to appear, the court postponed the case indefinitely under S300 bonds. The counsel for the defendant claims that the action of the constable was illegal, as the process should liave been against Brinkman & Co. She was only a sub-tenant, and not respon sible to D. W. Mahan, the owner of the property, by whom the warrant was sworn out. Tlubbell is the same officious meddler who recently figured in a similar case on Capitol Hill. He will take his meals in a standing position for .a day or two. r. District Contractor for Xcxi Tear.

Mr. Bobert Ball, special agent of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ; fa the District, has been in correspondence with ' Mr. Henry Bergb, or New York, in reference to the practice of butchers to bleed calves twenty-four hours before they aro killed for veal. Mr. Bcrgh pronounces the practico " barbarous and cruel,'' and concludes as follows : ; Every effort has been made by this society and ' kindred organizations to suppress this needless and cmel practice, hut up to the present time without sne- eess-forjikennto the daysof tbe dark ages, tho victim and the executioner are the only ones present In the torture chamber one soon to be silenced by death , the ether silent through fear of being condemned by the voce or an outraged public; and punished as a viola tor of the laws of the State. The Tree Doelor Wanted. Is there not a tree doctor in the em ployment of the District government, who is paid an annual fee for looking after tbo health of the shade trees planted along our streets? If such a functionary exists, the authorities would do well to look him up and ask him whether the young trees will not thrive better if the suckers are cut from around them. Nearly all the trees in the snb urbs of the city are dividing their sustenance with a healthy mass of undergrowth, which much re tards their development.

The Increasing Importance of Iron Ship Building Practical Suggestions HcntaLand 3Ioral Science and Other Studies at the Academy Discussed. The board of visitors appointed to at tend the annual examination at the United States Naval Academy, Bear-Admiral C. R. P. Rodgers, president; Hon. John F. Miller, vice-president, and Lieutenant C. Belknap, secretary, have sub mitted to the Secretary of the Navy the following report: "In consideration of the great importance of seamanship, gunnery, and navigation, the greatest possible weight should be given to them in determining the final standing of members of the several classes. The increasing importance or iron ship building renders it highly desirable that SOME ADDITIONAL MODELS in iron or steel of the longitudinal system of fram ing, stem framing of iron clads, and the different keels.showing methods of uniting them to stem and stern iorts. should be furnished to the de partment of seamanship. In the depart ment of gunnery we find that' only the old and almost obsolete smooth-bore muzzle-loading guns are provided for in struction of the cadets in this most important branch of professional studies. We feel that the eminently sensible recommendation oi the head of this Department, that a battery of breech-loading rifle guns of proper calibre, with the most im proved carriages, to replace a portion of the eight inch smooth-bore guns, should at once be carried into effect. It seems to us absurd that the navel cadets of this great country should continue to be instructed by methods and means WHICH THE EXPERIENCE of the rest of the naval world has laid aside as things of the past. The hoard recommends that a suitable steam vessel of war, to be armed with rifles and smooth-bore guns, be provided, in order that gunnery may be taught the cadets from vessels under way, either under steam or sail, or both, and that instruction in seaman ship in combination with steam may be practically taught. The department of steam engineering fchows improving thoroughness and efficiency. By the recent introduction of what is known as the Russian system of instruction in practical mechanics a notable advance has been made. THE DEPABTMEXT OP PHYSICS in all its branches evidently keeps pace with the progress of modern science. We have no recom mendation to ofTer with regard to the course of in struction pursued in mathematics. The board has no recommendations to make regarding the department of mechanics: the course appears to be ample and the instruction thorough. The work of instruction in English studies and the modem languages is well performed, and the results, con sidering the amount of preparation required for admission into the Academy, are not only equal to any just expectation but are in a very high degree creditable to the heads of the departments and to all the instructors whose work has COME UNDER OUE NOTICE. Considering how limited is the time which can be given to English studies, and how great the diffi- culties which instructors encounter in thedefective early education of many of the cadets, it would seem difficult to enlarge the comprehension of English studies: but it would be a most desirable addition to this course to bring into it more of study or the Government, whose servants they are. and of the people, whose rights and honor they are appointed to defend, and we would EMPHASIZE OUR CONVICTION that elementary studies in mental and moral science cannot be excluded from the education of the youth here assembled without damage to the proper harmony of their education and to its completeness for the purposes of command, for which they are in training. We would respectfully submit as worthy of in quiry whether the standard could not be supported in a higher interpretation by making fifteen years the lowest age at which a cadet could be received, or whether the standard might NOT KB ACTUALLY RAISED. even if in order to this cud it should be found nec essary to provide for a temporary sub-cadetship to insure that those who enter the prescribed course shall in no case be deficient at the beginning. To raise the standard of admission would be only to put the Naval Academy in harmony in this re spect with the colleges andpther advanced schools of the country, whose terms of admission are steadily rising with the general advance of educa tion. We are clearly of the opinion that the in hibition of THE USE OF TOBACCO among the cadets should be inforccd. The board gives its unqualified approval of the general con duct and management of the Academy.and of the admirable system under which the effective discipline of the cadets is maintained. The annual appropriations for the support of the Academy are strictly applied to the objects contemplated by the laws making them. There are now upou the shelves of the library about twenty-three thousand volumes. We would rec ommend the enactment of a law to secure to the library free of charge all Government publications as they are issued. Iu the opinion of the board IT IS NECEJfcARY that only enough cadets shall graduate from the Naval Academy to make good the annual wasto of the navy, and that Congress should by careful legislation provide against the accumulation of midshipmen and cadet engineers to grow old in those iuferlor grades, to the manifest injury of the naval service, its discipline, and its usefulness. The present sys tem seems to the board very fruitful of evil." A BUSINESS BOOM. Organization uta Bis -Uanuractarins En terprise. A certificate of incorporation of the Potomac Manufacturing Company, providing for an existence of twenty yeara and a capital stock of 51,000,000, divided into ten thousand shares of S100 each, was filed in the office of the Becorder of Deeds yesterday.
