Mr. Ruff offered an amendment. Mr. Burey opposed it, a-d thought all the scalar in the city ought to be purchased, if "7 n Mr. Donn also opposed any amendment, deprecating any opposition to this bill. Mr. Buscy opposed the bill in toto; the larrs were now concise enough upon the sutjsct; this new bill only increases the patronage of tha Corpora*, ion, without conferring any iiddi tional benefit. Any maifoasauce which bas been discovered, km net been the effect of the law, but of the weighors. He offered en amendment inserting six, in the place of three scales. Air. Duzicacscn desired the objects of the bill to be attained, bat disliked the creation of three new offices, and gavo notice of an amendment ho thould effer at some future time.

MrsiCAL Coxviktio.i?1'mu.i CaoiR Asso ciation?The regulsr monthly rehearsal of tha Union Choir Association was held last evening in the Tenth street Baptist Church, tha Conductor, Mr. F. A. Tucker, presiding Sevaral choruses wero well sung, and the meet ing, thovgh not so well attended as usual was a very pleasant cue. The Conductor an nounced that the plan for tha holding of a music el convention in this city had been com plete!, and that circulars were in course of preparation, letting fvrth fully the design and ot-jecls to be attained. 1L j convention will probably number several hundred delegates, and tha association will duly provide for their antertainment during their ttay in the city. Tha convention will assemble on luasday, the 8th of May next, will hold three se.'siocs a day, and adhurn on tha succeaJtng Fiilay, to close witn a grand concert, in which all aoaoerned will participate. The anniversiry of the Choir Association takes place on Mon day, tha 7th of May, when they give a concert, thus serving as an opening of the convention. Tiekets for admission to tuo l*otaras and dis cuBton in tha convention, and to the evening concert* will be prepared, oosting probably on* or two dollars for tha co-irto, or twenty, five cents the single ticket. Thus it will be seen that a new era is beginning to dawn upon our musical community, which, it is hoped, will ere l'>ng, from this metropolitan center, cast its rays over tbe entii* I wen. Professor 1 B Woodbury at* New York, will preside ovc the c^nvetuon and deliver tha lectures. We siecerel; Lope the commit tea of arrangements teill secu.e the Smithso nian Institution, as it is tht only place in oar city that will aeuommolat* the vast number thai undoubtedly wish to attend.

Nather country 9f relifion wm $sotionf<f Metropolitan Fax* ? Much excitement ?u crested among the dmorlton, yesterday, on perceiving a number of handbills distributed throughout the Fair, announcing il>%t they would net be admitted on Thursday next with* I out a "pay ticket," that day being set apart for the benefit of the poor, whilst numbers and Othert were requested not to oae thai r privilege on that day It waa this partial aonouaeemeot that did not please the depositors, for had tbey bsen all ptaeed on a similar footing, no objee tion whatever would have bean raised This having ooma to tba ears of soma of the man agers, a meeting was oonrened, when it wai stated that tue announcement made by the Recording Secretary was never iniended to have such a construction p?t spon it, bat merely to apply to a very large number of Krsons who bad plased articles in the Fair of tie or no utility with the object of obtaining j a season ticket. UTimately, it was resolved to exLunge the offensive sentence, which was at one* carried into effect. We hare no doubt that the Recording Secretary was prompted in his action by the best motives, as tba receipts of admission to the Fair on Thursday are for a oliaritable purpose. We regret, in oonneotion with this, to announce a rumor in eirculaion, this morning, that the indefatigable and ex cellent Superintendent, Thomas C. Connolly, Esq , intends to resign his office in oonnaotion with the Institute. Mr. Baldwin's Lecture.?Messrs Edi | tors: I hive attended manv of tha lecture* whioh have been delivered, from time to time. | at the Smithsonian Institute; but I hesitate not to say that I have nevar heard ona which, [ for vigor of thought, grapbio description, pu rity of language, justness of sentiment, or j graceful eloquence, was superiar to that de livered by Mr. Oliver 11. Baldwin this even ing. It was, indeed, an intellectual feast, and I can only regret that one of those larga au dionces. which frequently attend there, wi not in the lecture-room Can he not be in duced to repeat this lecture ? The subject is [ one whhh is very interesting, and it has been treated in a manner well calculated to take the -mote" out of the popular aye of the North and South. The subject was the North ern and Southern charuoter, the popular idea I of which was contrasted with the real. The J caricatures ^vere held up in ona hsnd. to the great amusement cf the audience, while the sterling qualities cf both were pointed out and delineated wi h graphic eloquonce. Ii. February 26, 1S55. Bastardy Cass. ? Yesterday, a colored man named Wm Jones was arrested on the oath of Mary Qr&tidison, charging bim with bastardy, "ihe parties have lived together for a number of years and have a family of sees, ral children. Jones deserted Mary, and she hsd him arrested on the above oharga for the youngast child. Jones being nnable to give the required security wa* sent to jail by Jus tice Clark. Mary's kind feelings would not allow him to remain long in prison, and this morning she has been looking for security that he may be released. The Market.?This mornirg, we had rather a slim attendance of fanners at our principal market, caused, we have no doubt, by the piercing oold of yesterday and last night. Of course, there was a general rise in the price of articles offered for sale, and in oonsequence purchases were small. We learn from one of our hotel managers thathewss obliged to pay sixty two cents per dozen for eggs by the quantity, for use jn the kitchen ; and we know a gentleman who was rejoicing that he had the good fortune to purchase a few at fifty cents. ? Philharmonic Society's Concert ?We re mind our readers that this concert will take place at Carnsi s Saloon, on Tuesday evening next, the 6th proximo. Let all attend, and we assure them of a rich musical treat, such a? is soldom cff--red. Mrs Franklin will sing is. me of her choicest selections; and a nc.v j candidate for public favor?Mrs. Burns, fn ci New York?will also lend her assistance ia giving a pUoeing variety to the entertainment. Gold Pess ?Messrs. Reed A Son, of Phila delphia. handed our reporter a fountain gold pen, with the request that be would try it tie has triod it. and found it invaluable He | can write half a column with but one dip | of the pen in the in k As a usual thing, he is willing to return borrowed articles ; but he requests us to inform Messrs Reed A Son that they can't have that pen again; and that ha won t give it up without a fight or a foot race. Smithsonian Institute ?The lecture to be delivered td-morrow evening before the United States Agricultural Society, by Oeorge Wash ington Parka Custis, Esq , will, at the request of this eminent s&gs, be enlivened by some ex i cellent pieces of mu3;c cf the National Brass Band. Selden, Withers A Co?It is announaed in the Globe that this firm have lately com pounded with some of their depositors for eighty thiee cents on tho dollar?that is, they have paid the depositor eighty-three cents for every hundred cents deposited with then.-. United States National Agricultural Society.?The annual session of this socie'y i will commence to-morrow, at the Smithsonian Institution. In the evening. G. W. P.

The thief hurt tbe boy ? hand by pulling the pistol from him. ?? Service During Lent?We are requested to state that there will be divine service at St. Matthew's church on Wednesiay and Fri day evening daring Lent, at 7 o'clock, p w. A lecture will be delivered te-morrow (Wed nesday) evening at 7 o'olock. Watch Returns.?There were no trill casei in this morning. There ware three youths in for lodging: one fifteen, ona eighteen, and the eldest twenty-two. Articles at the Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute. It is our intention, under this heading, from day to day, as space will permit, to give a description of tba many useful, ingeneoua and excellent articles on exhibition. Throughout the Fair this invontive genius of American art and skill may be seen, and a short deli neation thereof cannot fail t> interest the reader. Wade's Cylindrical Valve. Lubricator ? Here is an invention of considerable nceri>, and which no establishment, wherever an en gine is employed, should be without. It com bines throe most important properties : a sav ing of oil, ia preventing any loss by leakage, the eertaiaty of its reaching tbe desired places, and one, not tho least important when applfed ?o tbe engine of a looomotive, averting all daFgor. To railroad oomponies it is invalua Lie ti it enables the engincor to supply the rt*am cylinders with oil without leaving hit > stand, either while the engine is running or standing, and that without any danger of tbe cii being blown ou' by tbe steam. This is effeeted by meant of a rod attached to the crank cf said cylinder, a?d which extends to the engineer's stand, thus placing the opera lion ul the lubricator entirely under his con irol. In the machine room there are three of tham a tachei to the engines in use there, and on asking the parties in ebarge of then , how they were {leased with them, they spoke in tbe highest praise of their utility anl profit. We have ona attached to the engine in our establishment, and find it to work to a charm StvriHP Machine*?To be jonvinoed tha* s'eel anl iron are jetting to be pretty tho roughly mixed i;p with human bram< in those davs where novelty is not now, you have only to examine Howard A Davis s Hand Sewing Machine, whioh, having nothing aire to do like rocking a crsdle or warming the ears of olden babies-u?ci a needle in each hand and threads such at every Witch, without com plaining of over strained eyes.

Qboebitowh, Feb. 27,1855 Up to about two c'clsok yesterday our elec tion moved on j orderly and quiet. After that boar, however, the interral Area of eeae of the hangars on about the poll* began to ex hibit itself in something like volcanic erup tion? ; aud from that time until after the re sult was announced, (about three o^oloek this morning,) oar streets resounded with shouts, hcsiat, the loud bellows of a baby-waker, wbich bad been provided for the oooasion, and a few lights of small import, Aj. We are happy to say, however, that nothiog of a ?s rious character oeeurred. One man, by the name of Offutt, was slightly cut with a knife aero s the abdomen : but the injury is trifling. From the following result, it will be per oeived that the entire Addison ticket was elected by very large majorities. Number of votes east 6C0: FOR MAYOR H. A M.son 382 , R. P. Dodge *28 COUNCIL.

From the remit. it will be seen that Addison, for Mayor, has 164 maj >rity, and that the low est oandidate upon his ticket beats the highest on the opposition 81 votes. While the eleotion was going on yesterd4y, the roof of a hyuse on High street, occupied by Mr. 11 uddlesion, took fire from the burning chimney of the adjoining house, which would doubtless have resulted in a serious conflagrs. tion had it not bean for the timely eff >rts of | the bystanders. The damage, however, was very trifling. The Sabbath School Fair for the benefit of tbe Briantown mission, will be opened again this evening, and continue daring the remain der of the week. We would advise all who wish to spend an hour or to very pleasaotly, and in the society of some very handsome and agreeable young ladies and to contribute to wards a vory laudable objeot, to pay them a visit.
