Chuhb Brothers acknowledge the receipt of 87 from the workmen employed in the nary yard, collected through the exertion* of W. 1*. S. Sanger, for the relief of the distressed. From "A Lady" the same house had received 515. We would here repeat, that as the two cities of Norfolk and Port.-iuouth are alike necessit ous. pors.?nc or societies making contributions would do well to es|>eeially de.-igi.atc the di rection which they desire the tunds to take, and if designed for the distressed of both places it sh ?uld be expressly stated in tho let ter transmitting the money.

Mockabee, Staniey and Thomas, of tho auxil iary guard, were passing about their beat in the northern section of the city, they entered an alley known a* Hor. -hamp alley, located between L and M street, their attention was attracted to a man who was rather suspiciously engaged. The guards watched him closely, and saw him in the act of filing a building lo cated in the alley, the property of Mr. P. Mae key As t.ocn aa they discovered what he had done. Mr Thomas went to the pjm t and extin guished too firj, while his associates, after a short race, succeeded in arresting the incen diary Oa tho way to the guard hous?* the prisoner dropped something, wbi.'h one of the guards pieked up : it was a bottle containing spirits of turpentine. A ball of lampwick w?s found upon him. which, in addition to tho testimony of the guards, was rather strong evidence of his nightly vocation Upon ex amination before Captain Birch, he ^ave his name a-John Tont.*\ but upon being reeog niitd by several persons he admitted that his nauie wis John Jones. lie is abcut ?wenty twn years of age. rather good looking, is mar ried, and hiitsfroio Baltimore, but has been living in Washington for a year or two. lie denied that ho set fire to the house, though he did not deny his connection with the bottle of turpentine and the ball of Inmpwick : Lc said ho was in t the only one. lie wa* sent to jail by Capt.
