The question being on Its third reading - Mr. Pepper moved its amendment by add ing a clause directing that this hose should be provided with Falconer's coupling.

The board then adjourned. Captcri or ? Sscbbt Socibtt?Last night, between nine and ten o'olock, informa tion was given to the police that a number of male colored persons were meeting, in secret conclave, in the cellar of a house on D street, between Ninth and Tenth streets, which they bad rented of the white proprietor of the premises. Accordingly, a police possee pro ceeded thither The door was opened in obedience to the rap of one of the officers, wben he and his companions made a forcible entry. The members of the society exhibited much alarm when they saw the white faoes rushing into their midst; and the officers of the association at once removed their glitter ing regalia, and hastily gathered up their books and archives. The entire party were, without ceremony, escorted to the watch house. Placed in the partitioned enclosure in the business office of that establishment, they presented the spectacle, not of a company of loafers but apparently genteel colored men. Captain Birch read to them the law which firohibits free or slave blacks and mulattoes rom assembling unlawfully or meeting in score'; the smallest fine for which offence is five dollars. The municipal statute likewise subjects police offioers te a fine of fifty dollars in the event of their failing to enter and break up such associations. The fact that ;he prisoners bad assembled in secret or private meeting was proved, and also that all those who were present at the watch-house were in the cellar in D street, with the door locked. The Captain having asked them whether they bad anything to say, one of the blaoks requested the examination of certain books which be placed on the desk, whioh consisted of the Holy Bible, Seneo*'s Morals, and Life in Earnest Among the private papers was one in the form of subscription for the pur chase of a slave woman named Elisa Howard, the virtue set on her by her owner being$650 To the liberating fund, Hon Gerrit Smith paid $30 and Hon W. 11- Seward $5 ; lion jT It Giddings was " down" for $1 00, but the cash was not paid. Several cf our respectable cit izens had likewise contributed There were scraps of poetry in manuscript, including " Tbe Lone Indian's Dream," and the printed constitution of a society called " The Daugh ters of Jerusalem." similar to one the ( col ored folks" have in Richmond, Va., the object of which. ?? stated iu the preamble, is to 4> re lieve tbe sick and bury the dead." The con tents of a paper box was also examined by the Captain, consisting of sets of handsome regalia fur the officers of tbe society. At the tu?ge?'ion of an effioer tbe negroes, twenty-four of them in number, were sever ally searohed, e*ch one in turn going down ?tairs for that purpose; but nothing tending to implicate them in erime was found on their persons. Acoording to their own statement they had met lor benevolent purposes. Some of them were released last night, and the other cases were disposed of this morning Tbe following are the names of tbe persons arrested: Slaves?Walter Clements, Charles Mason, Rich aid Henry Sanders, and Joseph Jones. Free?James Williams, Joseph Johnson, John E. Bennott, Chester Taylor, Chat. Brown, James Curtis, Henry Dunlap, Wm. Simonds, Geo. W. Gaines, Lewis Norton, Daniel Wil liams. Peter Uempsley, Aaron Jones, Reuben Doss. Edmund Duckett. George Sands, Jame^ Clagett, George Lee, Grafton Johnson, and Aquilla Barton Bennett, Taylor, Lee, and Barton were sent to tbe work-bouse. Joseph Jones reeeived six lashes, and the others were released on the payment of the fiae and oests?$5 58 each. The occurrence to which we have above re ferred created this morning quite an interest among the colored population of the eity. Spbisg Fasbiorb.?With the incoming of spring is tbe reception of new stylet of dress suited to that ever welcome season, and in the pursuit of the fashions our fair ones can never be charable with aloth. Our readers will find at Mrs. Hill's, south side of Pennsylvania avenue, between Ninth and Tenth streets; at Miss Morley's, north side of Pennsylvania avenue, between the same streets; at Mad. Delarue's, No 338, Pennsylvania avenue, north side, between Twelfth and Thirteenth streeu, Miss J. Thompson, at Hutchison A Munro's, Pennsylvania avenue, between Ninth and Tenth streets next door to Walter Har per's; and M. Willian have all opened very recently excellent stocks of spring millinery goods John T Evans, tbe fashionable and go-* head hatter, has a large and varied stook of spring bonnets for the ladies, to be made op by the ladies at home; and Maxwell A hears a stock of new style Paris mantillas, such as bat rarely been seen in Washington. All these goods are well worth seeing even by those ladies who do not wish to buy. Nothing superior to them were ever iaported into this market ? Tib Frail Sistbbhood.?We have hereto fore published accounts of the arrest of many abandoned women by the local authorities of the oity of New York According to a state meat et the Commercial so established an in. alitution bad street walking by abandoned wo men become, that those persons seemed to have acquired a proseriptive right to the prin cipal promenades after sunset, and oertainly ? zeroised it with very determined impudence and rudeness. In the lower parts of tbe city, a gentleman could not esoort a virtuous lady past the prineipal hotels, or the crossings of oertain streets, without a most painful oertain. ty that her eyee and ears would be saluted with behavior and language most revolting aad disgusting We publish this statement for the purpose of saying, in connection, that, as appears by the New York papers, a lady residing in Fair fax eounty, Va., has written a letter to May or Wood, in which she offers to take one of the frail women and reform her. She desires the girl to be sent to herself and husband. The IitUr is said te be a respectable butcher. The letter was sect by the Mayer to the Mag del an Asylum. Cautio!* ?It seems that some maliciously disposed person is in the habit of tearing the atre and other bills posted around the city. It is presumed that the individual who in dulges in this practice is afflicted with ?ome such mania as impelled the New \ork vitriol man to the eonrte whieh has probably con signed him for a lifetime to a prison, or at least in the charge of keepers The offenee to wbiob we first above refer is severely punish able under the laws, and many persons inter. ?Sted, as weU as all the police offioen, are keeping a sharp look cut to eateh the offender. This woid to Um wm shoald be tiUBtiMt People's Theatre ?The play of Guy Man. nering wu repeated last sight at this popular place of report?Mia Morant sustaining the character of Meg Merriles. Not only this lady, bat moct of those who (attained parte I* the play, acquitted themselves in a manner that highly delighted the large number of spectators in attendance There was evidently ao improvement in the acting, as contrasted with the prerioos representation of that beau tiful drama. To night, Miss Morant plajs the part of Juliana in the deservedly favorite comedy of the "Honey Moon." The out is a strong and excellent one. "Fortune's Frolic" oonoludes the evening's entertainment. There will, in all probability, be a full house. The worthy manager deserves the patronage of the pnblio for his efforts to preeervo an innocent and in structive means of enjoyment Dar Qoons.?Riley, in ' Dry Goods Square," at the oorner of Eighth street and Louisiana avenue, has just opened a capital assortment of spring goods, embracing something of every thing one might expect to find in a Metropoli tan establishment of the kind, of long main tained reputation. His store has been well known for year* as one of the very bestplaoes in Washington in which to purohaae staple dry goods of all descriptions. He has for many years monopolised a large portion of the cus tom of the farmers in the country surrounding Washington?the people who are quickest and shrewdest id finding out where they will be sure to get full returns for their money in vested in any purchases whatever they make. Bu on roua Goaad.?A well dressed man has called at the residences of some of our oitiiens in the West End, within a day or two, asking, in every oase, for the ladies, refusing to give his nhme when demanded by the ser vants, and behaving in other respects in a manner to create suspicions of his objects At some places, he appeared as the friend and companion of a mute who prepares visiting oards; at others, as the bearer of a letter of introduction to the family, which, however, he refused to deliver exoept in person to the lady. This individual, or these individuals, have been playing this game for some days. Look out for him or them. All Fool's Dav ?Mr. Editor:?If your correspondent,41 Query," is really igaorant of the oiigin of April Fool's Day, and desires in formation, I will throw a ray of light on bis mind, hoping at the same tine to benefit other similarly benighted querists. I read in Roman history that the first of April was the day dedioated to Venus, the, goddess of love and beauty, when the young persons from tbe country came into the city to participate in the enjoyment of the scenes. As they were unsophisticated in many oity sports, they became the subjects for the tricks of th" oitisens These playful jokes increased At each successive oelebration, until at length they were so prevalent on that day as to in elude the oitixens also, and thus finally the day?first of April?roceived the title of " All Fool's Day " If not satisfactory to "Query," I would reoommend tbe reading of the history, as I write from memory, and may not be entirely correct in reference to details. W. W. ?. Franklin Bcilmng Association ?There was much eagerness manifested, last night, at the first monthly meeting of this association, to secure stock, and with the stock previously taken there were more offers than could be ao commodated, tbe shares being limited to two thousand; many had to go away disap pointed At the salesof money much spirit was evinced, and bids were quits high?50J, 50. 4^4. and 51 oents being tbe rates al which it sold. We understand it is in contemplation to organize another association at an early day. Robbbrt.?Mr. A H. Voss, jeweler, Seventh street, second door abovo II, was robbed last ni^bt A glass in tbe show-window having been broken, the thief, provided with a hook, attached to a stink, "Gsbed' all the valuable articles within its reach, and es;.iped with them So intent was the rogue in the pursuit of his business that he evidently cut himself with the glass, as stains of blood were thia morning discovered on it and the sash. The Ioes falls heavily on Mr Voss, an industrious mechanic, who has but recently oommenoej business. ? Fire.?The residence of the Misses Chisemj on Maryland avenue, near Sixth street. Island, took fire, yesterday afternoon, by a spark from chimnev catching in iheroof and beitig fanned into a blme by tbo high wind that was pre vailing. A neighbor, fortunately, discovered it before it bad made much progress, and with commendable promptness and energy put it out without even the inmates knowiDg that their house had been on fire. The Great Salh or Washington Citt Property.?The reader is referred to our auction sales column for the card of Mr. Chaa. j W. Boteler, auctioneer, for the project of a general sale of all lots whioh Washington city property holders are willing to offer. Mr. Boteler has a high reputation as an effective salesman, ani will, aoubtloss, dispose of a large amountofvaluablo property in this novel enterprise of his, whioh is well worthy of pub? lie attention. Double Trick.?Among tbe Sunday amuse ments?first of April?a young gentleman tied m string to a bright half dollar, which ha plaoed on the pavement, and as one passer-by after another would stoop to pick it up, the trickster, concealed from public view, would pull the string towards him, thus changing tho locality of the silver; but an old gentleman who had seen that game in his early days, put his foot on the money, out the string, and pock eted the treasure. Merchant's Exchange ?We direct the at. tention of such of our readers as wish to know what are the objects sought to be accomplished by the Merchant's ?xehange, to the circular to day published in tbe Star. Mr. Thos. C. Mae;ruder the clerk, will visit Georgetown with a view to solicit the merchants and oth* erdof that oity to become members of the as sooiation. Western Wilds.?Stanley's beautiful, muoh adorned, and truthful Panorama, will be exhibited at Odd Fellow's Hall, commeno ing to morrow afternoon, at half-past three o' clock, and aL&o at night.
