We quote from a northern exchange an account of her visit to the Pope at Rome, which will be read with scarcely less interest by our fellow citizens generally than by her own especial protegees, the gallant f* Columbias,*' of Capi tal Hill: 4- Bedini. last month, presented to the Pope Mr?. E. H. Pendleton, of Washington, and Mrs M. L Barr. the daughter of the lament ed Senator Linn, of Missouri. Cardinal An tonclli first received the ladies as expected guc?ts. and with great cordiality devoted his attention to them, in the most varied and pleasing manner; he showed them, amongst* other things, the m<*t superb specimens of marble, brought from every part of Europe, and the rarest collection of precious stones, in cluding a black diamond ; a crystal ease of antiques of various kinds was examined and greatly admired by the ladies, who expre?scd their pleasure at this distinguished evidence of the Cardinal's attention. A signal from the chamberlain announced his Holiness as ready to admit the party. The Pope stood near a table, at the end of the long room, robed in a dress of white, with crimson slip pers, on which .-parklcd the gulden cross. M. Rodini introduced the ladies to the Holy Fa ther. as Americans ; he gave his hand to them, while a warm, benevolent smile, played over his expressive fa*-e, as he welcomed them to K"ine. On taking leave, his Holiness said he gave the hi-m esj e.-ial ticking, and again prof fered hU hand. Fr*DAY A*r.?EinwT?.?Our city, usually quiet on the Sabbath day, is beginning to be pestered by lawless youngsters from other cities, who comc hero exacting to practice their belligerent science without feeling the hand of the law. In addition to these Sabbath day emigrants, a numerous body of 4- cent ante"' gamblers occupy the unguarded public squares, and lose their fips. but claim to be w?.ll rewarded bv g? tting drunk. These go to thoir homes at night, bawling and screaming, to the great annoyance of the peaceably in clined. One row came off in an alley, usually called Soap allev, situated between Sixth and Peventh streets, near O. Some of the party were arrested, but being least in fault were let go. Another came off in the eastern section of the eity. What was the cause, or who the parties were, we have not learned. Coirtof Claims.?Additional attorney?con tii:u*. to be admitted to practico in this court. A question having been raised on Friday as to whether the solicitor or the counsel for the petitioners should hold the affirmative on a demurrer, the court resolved that the opening and clo>iug belonged to the solicitor. The court also resolved that a brief in such cases Would not be required. The court ann< uuced the following modifica tion of the second rule : That the u;tition. be fore l>eing filled by the clerk and entered in his general docket, must be sworn to by the claimants, or, where there is more than one claimant. b> one of them. or. in either case, by fvme credible person. Axotueu Robbery.?Saturday night or Sur.| day morning, some persons entered the tailor ing estahlisnment of Mr. E. C. Eckloff. on Pennsylvania avenue, near Ninth street, and r bbed it of about tw;> hundred and fifty dol lars' worth of clothing, finished and unfinished, aad of other valuable g-?>ds. The robbers likewise entered the cigar-store adjoining, and helped themselves extensively to all they c >uld lay hands on. They obtained ingress to the latter (kept by a nephew of Mr. Eckloff) thr u^h the door of the partition dividing the two establishments. The rogues must nave operated by means of a false kev, or a bick pick No clue has been obtained as to their I*rsons or whereabouts.
