Bailey, and others, for grading and paving an alley in square 570; referred to the improve ment committee. Mr. Pearson moved to discharge the claims ci mm it tee from the further consideration of the petitions of M. Fceney, for a remission oi a fine, and of John Callahan, also for the re mission of a fine; committee discharged. Mr. Emery reported, from the committee on unfinished business, a bill amendatory of an act entitled "An act to organise a police sys tem for the city of Washington," approved March 11, 1851; referred to the police com mittee. Mr. Pepper reported, from the improvements committee, a bill to grade and pave the alley on Mjuare 52<J; passed The lower Board s joint resolution, changing the location of the Western Market, and lo ca on ^ street north, between Eighteenth and > inctcenth streets west, in the First Ward was passed. On motion of Mr Bayly, Mr Ten Eyck had leave to have a eopy of his paper* which were ocforc the Board at it* l&^t session. Mr. Emery reported, from the committee on unfinished business, the petition of Francis B Lord, commissioner of the Third and Fourth narus. referred to the finauce committee. , *; ??v?ns reported, from the committee on ? lotions, that Samuel C. Busey is entitled to seat as a member of this Board. J* moved to lay the said report on the table until next meeting, to afford the gentleman of the committee who did not agree to the repor, an opportunityito make the mi nority reporihe designed making. Mr. Houston was oppo?ed to any delay in ?cling on this report. He could see no Rood reasons for it. Mr. Evans explained that this motion was in accordance withran agreement in the commit tee, whereby it was determined to make this report now, ami to leave the matter lay over for a week, to enable Mr. Miller to make his renort. Mr. Miller explained that his objections to action on this report arose from the fact that he, a member of the committee, had not been allowed to have su;h access as he desired to the papers in the case until after thev should be returned with the report. Report laid over for one week; yeas 7, nays 5; as follows : 1 ea^-Magruder, Bayly, Miller, Evans. Bu eey, Marks. Pearson. Nays?Tretlcr, Pepper, Emery, Houston, Smith. Mr Houston moved to make the subject of Ihcse contested elections the special order for Monday next; agreed to. Mr Bayly moved that the minority of the committee have the free use of the jyipcrs which were before the said (election) commit tee in this Fifth Ward case. Mr. Houston opposed this motion, on the ground that the original papers should not be allowed to go from the custody of the secretary of the board. J Mr. Busey desired to refer, aa a member of the-Board, to these papers, and therefore was opposed to letting the originals go out of the tne custody of the a?retary. Mr. B^yly then modified his motion so that ft should direct the clerk of the election com mittee t 'furnish such copies of the papers in the contested election ease, as any mcmoer of the Board might require ; agreed to. The lower board's bill authoriiing the curb stones to be set and the footway paved on the cast side of I'Jth street, west, from C to 11 rtreets. north ; passed. Mr. Pearson remarked that a majority of the committee (the two Know Nothings on it? x??.) had voted that their investigati<?us should be private; so he hoped that that obligation would be duly observed with reference to these papers, until the suMect matter cau?c duly before the board on Monday next. The Board then adjourned. Co-nimon Council.?Several petitions were presented by Messrs. Abert. Clements, Walker and Peters, and appropriately referred. Mr. Clements reported a bill to changc the eite selected for the Western Market to one a square further west; and stated in support of the bill that the present one would cost the *? ity -1'^?? more than the one proposed, aud that no citizen in the vicinity would be injured by the change. The bill passed. Mr. Clement? from the ways und means com mittee. reported the usual bill making the ap propriations to pay the expenses of the city for the current fis.'al year, and moved that it be printed. Laid on the table, and made the special order for Monday, and from day to day until it be disposed of; which was agreed to. Mr. W alker. from the committee on improve ments, reported a bill to pave the footway on L street north, between Twelfth and Twenty fifth streets west; also, one to pave the foot way on M street, from New York avenue to Boundary street; wuich were passed. Mr. Ball, from the committee on unfinished business, reported three bills, which had been passed by the former Board of Alderman : the first, authoriiing the delegation from the Sec ond AN ard to purchase a site for the Franklin lire Company to locate their engine bouse, was referred to the fire department com mittee ; the second, relating to horse racks and other obstructions in the streets, was reftofred to the police committee; and the third, to pave the footway and set curbstones on Nineteenth *roUi ^ street?, was passed. Mr. Huff, from the police committee, re ported adversely upon the petition of J. H. xeaton and others, grocers and butchers, who had petitioned that their wagons be freed from taxes, like job wagons. The bill frvia the Board of Aldermen to grade Twelfth street from Marylaud to Vir avenue, on the Island, was referred to the committee on improvements. A joint resolution from the same Boavd. in structing the Mayor to execute immediately the act passed to improve Fourteenth street "est, waa referred to the committee on ways and means Mr Lloyd offered a joint resolution instruct ing the appropriate committee to petition tongre.4 f,,r the lighting of all the streets and avenues running across and about the Mall, by was passed A joint resolution offered by Mr. AtLee, rc pealipg all tuat portion of two acts of the cor poration which prohibits any member of either v?? *o hold any other salaried office under toe corporation, or tho situation of police mag "f*te, was refercd to the police committee. The sneeia] order for the day was taken up - was the resolution of Mr. Jefferson, offered *1 the last meeting of the Board. *? ' moved to strikeout the 2J rcsolu lon. (This provides for the appointment of in spectors or ward commissioners, in equal num ?*r from the chief opposing parties, by a new power asked for in the resolution, f lie thought " would be undignified for this corporation to *** them to meddle in our own affairs, and eay wnen we shall have party inspectors; he was not for that. 1 Mr. Jefferson <tated that no one con'd tell "hat issue wo0td hereafter divide the public f! ;L Heretofore, except at the last two elections, anew issue had arisen every year, c j t"*t the time would come when the pre sent maj >rity would not regret the p^sago of ? re?olation as it stands.

Mr. Abert remarked that in tho dimnesi and uncertainty of political parties, that wise and gxxl discretion should be exercised by all when in power. In the future both parties might see the prudenco and foresight in pass ing such a resolution at this time. It did not refleet upon the judges of the late election at ? ? \ u ^ r98o,Dti?n? ind as much to be desired by the majority as the minority. . Messrs. Walker and Clement? thought that Congress had already interfered too much fur us. The motion to strike out prevailed by a P^l.rty vote?15, nays 6. Mr. Clements moved to strike out of thefirst JE?tI i? th?KTvWon for two election pre cincto in each Vard, stating that he would vote to establish another Ward in the city, but did not wish to open an avenue for "double voting. ' **-. Jefferson replied that it was working well in New York where they are eminently practical, and no more double voting could be dune then than now, in going from one Ward to another, the poll iist being made out for each precinct. After some discussion, Mr. Clement's motion was-lost?yeas 10, nays 11. The resolution was then passed and the Board adjourned. The Western Presbyterian Church, dedicated on Sunday lust, is situated between >inateentfc and Twentieth streets on II street. The session room, where the services were celebrated, was beatifully fitted up for the occasion The pastor, the Rev. Mr. Haskell, preached the morning discourse, from Isaiah, chapter 64, verse 11?"Our holy and our beautiful bouse, where our fathers praised thee, In the afternoon, the Rev Byron Sunderland discoursed from Nehemiah, chan ter .. verse 1R, the latter clause?14 let us ri.-e up and build: So they strengthened their hands for the good work. -' At night, the Rev. Jir. liaskell delivered an eloquent sermon from the book of Revelations, chapter 4, verse 18, latter clause: "Holy, holy Lord Gcd Almighty! w hich was, and is, and is to come." A collec tion was taken up both in the forenoon and in the evening; but, we regret to say. the amount contributed was small. Though the membership comprises few per soiif? tho enterprise being oi comparative rocent uate?there is a good prospect of build ing up a large congregation in that part of the city in which the church is loeated. The Fireworks.?In accordance with pre ? ous notice, the fireworks prepared for ti e iourth ol July, but the ignition of which was postponed owing to tho rainy weather, were uuched off last night. Thousands upon thousands of spectators?men, women, and children?were in attendance, on the Wash ington National Monument grounds, in the vicinity of the President's house and the Treas ury Department, and other localities; but the best point of view was the first named place, from elevated positions in Georgetown, the people enjoyed a tolerably good view of thee*, hibition. The injury to the fireworks by the rain, on the fourth instant, was much greater than it was anticipated. However, those pieecg which were not thus affected were truly gor geous and delight-inspiring, especially the showers of rocket*, the inarron batteries and the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. W hitped.?Jack Holloman, one of the three who were concerned in the attack on Butler, which resulted in those dreadful wounds upon his lace and tongue, was taken from the county at eleven o clock Iwt night aixi conveyed to the watch house, where he received his re ward for the improper conduct. Jack bciii" a slave, the justice was obliged by the law?to order him to be whipped, and the excellent character which he has always sustained u-(| urn off with fifteen stripes on the baie back; a ightpunishment, considering the offence with which he was connected. Tasker, the other one arrested with Jack, and who i? charged with inflicting the wound, is still in prison, and would doubtless be glad to escape with fifteen ishe*: but being free, has to receive his re ward from tho criminal court. The Indians, to whom we alluded yester day, are ol the Kaw tribe, of Kansas 'lerrito ry, who came hither for a " big heap of money to carry home," and to have one of the num ber made "a big chief, with a military coat ami cp;iulet?. a horse, bridle, spurs, and a pair \t "^''die-bags." The acting commissioner, -Mr. Mix. di?i all that lay in hut power, telling them that he would give them a paper to their father the agent, to take homo with them ; that their Great Father would pay their ex penses this time, but they must not come again without being sent for. The Indians were not particularly pleased at the refusal to comply with their unreasonable request. Look Ol*t.?One of our city officers informed us this morning, that there are white persons in this city who are ready to pass other people's slaves out of the city without authority. Those who have control of the roads are probably deceived at times by black persons. A oaso of tho kind has recently occurred. If the case goes to court, the evidence will be inter esting to slaveholders here. Wo would also say for the benefit of slaves, that an old Jus tice or the Peace informs us that a slave steal* ing a slave is liable to be hung, under one of the old laws of Maryland by which we are governed! Some People will have their Sport COST WHAT IT MAY.?It will be recollected that in the programme concerning the fire works, as published yesterday, it was stated that, if the weather should prove rainy, and thus cause the pyrotechnic display to be again postponed, three guns would be fired at seven o'clock, as an indication to that effect. At half-past seven, three guns were fired, in, it is supposed, the neighborhood the Capitol, by individuals evidently bent on sport?not by authority of the gentleman having direction of the fireworks. It was emphatically a false report, deceiving many. who. otherwise, would have proceeded to the vicinity of the fireworks to witness the brilliant display. Pickpockets in the Market?Mrs. J. Towles had a portmonnaic containing several dollars, stolen from her pocket while attending to business in market this morning. She sus picioned a boy who was standing by, and asked him about it. He gave no answer, but pushed her from him ami left immediately. The offi cers are on his trail, and he will have to ac count for his conduct Criminal Cocrt.?The trial of George Rag lan. charged with the murdor of tho white hostler, Fitzpatrick, which was c< mineuced yesterday, was continued to-day. All the tes timony on both sides has been given ; aud when we left the court-house, at one o'clock this afternoon, Mr. Katcliffo was addressing the jury in behalf of the prisoner. Jordan's White Sulphur Springs opened for the season in June last. A more delightful watering-place is noi to be found anywhere. Contrary to tho gent rally received opinion, "Jordan is ' not "a hard road to travel. ' The access is both easy and agreeable. Hisorperlv Conduct.?A fellow was taken before Justice Bates, yesterday, for disorderly crnduct in the streets. As the accused would give no name and pay no fine, the justice seut him to the workhouse under the name of Bill Drinkhard. He paid his fine and was re leased this morning. Wins Whippino.?Brian O'Connor was. yes terday, charged by his wife with beating her. He was taken before Justice Goddard, who held him to security to keep the peace. The justice also gave the wife a lecture she will not soon forget?subject, 44 The proper treatment of a hard-working husband. Boarding.?We refer those who are in want of go, 4 boarding and lodging to the advertise ment*. respectively, of Mrs. Duvall, Mrs. P. G. Murray, and Mrs. Bates. Their houses arc eligibly and pleasantly located, commanding a view <>f that great thoroughfare?Pennsylva nia avenue. Georgetown College.?Very many of our citismis visited Georgetown College to-day, to attend the interesting cert monies of the an nual commencement of that time-honored in stitution of learning The Montgomery Guards announce their animal excuiaiwn for Thursday, the 21 of Au sat.

' ? *' [COMHUSICATEO " Mesdtour Ways "?Mr. Editor : Being obliged to pass Maryland avenue (what is gen erally called the Bladonsburg road) daily, wo havo to say that the part of it which lies be tween Sixth and Twelfth streets cast, is at present in an awful condition?the road being extremely narrow, and bounded by ditches on each side, makes it a 44 hard road to travel." For instance, one carriage uttempting to pass another is generally precipitated down one of those ditches or banks. Of this, we have s^en several instances. One of theso ditches ex tends about fifty yards on one side of the road, and is at leaot yevon feet deep. We saw an accident no less than one week ago, in which a wagon, drawn by four horses, laden with pro duce, together with a buggy, were thrown into this ditch. The wagon and occupant* of the same got off as well as conld bo expectcd, but the buggy was smashed to atoms. Now. this was a severe loss to the owner, but we were thaukful it was no worse, for it wa<3 the must narrow cscapc wc ever noticed. This is only one of those numerous accidents on that road. Now, Mr. Editor, our object in stating theso facts, is first, to forewarn passers over that road; and second, to call the imme diate attention of the corporate authorities, who have never yet done anything to remedy this evil, notwithstanding sundry complaint4. But in the name of justice to the tax-pavers of that portion of the city, it ought to be done forthwith, and we hope the city councils will tike the matter into consideration, and make some provision for the much needed repair of that truly awful road. It would be but proper to relate to you that, prior to the recent mu nicipal election, it wan understood that they were to repair that road immediately; su^ qucntly wo have heard no more of it. 4 Your?, Traveller over ? that Road.
