The Circtjs ?The circus of Joe Pent/and. bow exhibiting in this city, bears off the palm irvin all similar entertainments that we have had in Washington for many jear.^ f!1? performers are all highly skilled and ambitions, and exert themselves to please! while their appointments are well got up, anu to their credit be it written, kept scrupulously clean. The ring horns arc all young, activc and well trained. Frank and William Pastor, the boys who perform the trapaaec, Sherwood and his wife, the leading vaulter, the trained d"^'. and, indeed, all and every thing intro duced into the ring, arc of the very first oider, all being far superior in their way to any thing ut the kind exhibited here for many years past Joe Pentlaud is the very Prince of Clowns, relying apon genuine wit alone for the amusement of his audicnccs. Not a word was uttered, in the whole course of last night's Sertormances, offensive to the cars of the most elicate lady. This is a.- it should be. To night is their last one in Washington, and we ?dyise all to attend who know how to enjoy a ?isit to the best circus in the country at this time. . Riot a.vd Fightiig ?Yesterday, officers fanning and Goddard arrested Cfcas. McGib bon for fighting at a houso on Twelfth street it appeared to be a rather serious encounter between a mother and her son, when the of ?cers made the arrest. McGibbon was taken to the office of Justice Clark, where evidence was produced which proved that the Witnesses were not less in the mud than the principal in the m:re. The justice committed tho party; and then came from the madarne a speech, which we do not feel disposed to give to the publie. We regret, though, that she should villify the Sqeirc by calling him a "d?d Knew Nothing," with the extras. It is proba ble that she will discover before she shall be discharged from the county jail that she made amuuke. Ta.vsKStsE Block or Marble.?We are authorized by Mr. William Dougherty to state, in relation to the charge in the Organ of yes terday, of his having mutilated the Tennessee block of marble, forwarded from that State to be plaoed in the Washington National Monu ment, that if the present acting board of man agers believe what is there asserted, they know how to obtain redress ; and that ha will he ready at any time to meet the investiga tion. He likewise wishes them to know tnat he not onK has a specimen of the Tennessee block at hut residence, but one of the block from every State in the Union. Tub Bodies or Cait. Bores and his daugh ter Emma, victims of the late Camden and Amboy railroad disaster, have be?u brought to Georgetown, and deposited in the vault at Oak Hill Cemetery. While thepersons having the bodies in charge were on their way hither, they received, it is said, tho melancholy intel ligence that Mrs. Boyce died after they left Burlington with the remains of the abeve named members of the family. Msae Robbery ?An old colored woman, a slave, seat to market with produce to sell, and furnished by her in arte r with fifteen dollars to make purchases, was robbed in the market by some worthless villain of every cent. The fobs and tears of the old woman aroused the anger and sympathy of all who heard her re late the story. It is a pity the worthless scoundrel who stole the money was not caught in the act and punished on the spot. Tme Electio* to fill the vacancy in the Georgetown B^ ard of Common Council is to be feeld on Thursday, the 6th instant. , V ~W?1 ?tho comoiUM for lb* second Wajfd, anp*Dtcd by (he Merchants' hx^haiige, oolleeted, yesterday, between three and four hundred dollars. Wo have not heard roin the other committees, but presume that tney hare been equally successful, as the peo ple readily contribute for the relief of the suf ferers by yellow fover in Norfolk and Ports mouth. Many persona are ready to give, if called upon by responsible parties; therefore we hope that all the gentlemen composing the committees will endeavor to wait upon our citiiens for that parpose. They will, we as SUJ!u a* Jabor is not in vain. ijf,.r*s"lt1of the performances of the Camp, bell Minstrels was twenty-fire dollars, which with ten dollars from Oriental Lodge, I. 0. 0.

Mr. Pricc was badly cut about the head and neck, and his statement of the affair would make it a se rious case. Mr. Morgan was held to bail for court by Justice Clark. John T. Reeder was sent to jail by the tame magistrate, in default of security for neace; he having threatened the livej of an entire family. NVrsingthe:Sick.?Mr. Joseph Ferguson, barber, on Eighth street, will leave this city this a^rnoon, on his way to Norfolk, where he i^Leus to volunteer his services as a nurse, lie has a family in Washington. He is about to engage in a dangerous though a noble work. e V' and Jackson, of this city, left for No,folk on Thursday evening last, on the nob .e mission of offering their service* to the ack of that city. False Alarms.-?The fire companies were called out last night by two alarms. One caused them to drag their heavy apparatus to SuA Ward;, the other to the Seventh '? ard, but there was no need of their services.

Jervis; State Prison Inspector?Pat rick H. Agin." Ti e following me among the reijlutioti which they passed i Resolved, That the national administration has our hearty concurrence and commendation In its management of the public finances, in the exercise of the veto poire; to protect the treasury from being made the spoil of specu lators and to arrest improvident and corrupt expenditures?that tho system of rigid ac countability to which disbursing officers have been held?the scrutiny with which defalca tions have been detected, and tho altitude as sumed in support of the American name abroad, as well as the important treaties with foreign governments, extending the system of commercial reciprocity and freedom of trade are marks of an honest and faithful adminis tration. Resolved, That we regard the Invitation put forward by the enemies of the Demooratic P,artJ j.11 lb'8 to the Democratio doctors tucreof to form new coalitions, or fusions, un der a new and deceptive party title, as the devise of politicians who only aim to perpet uate their ascendency in the State government for selfi?h ends and corrupt purposes. Resolved, That we recommend to the elec tors In the several Assembly Districts of this istate to choose one delegate from each District to attend a State Convention on a day and place to be designated by the State Central committee, for the purpose of selecting dele gates to the next National Convention of the Democratic party to be held at Cincinnati. R'solved, That we congratulate the Democ I "iC7 u v Vnion upon tho signal victories which have recently been won by their politi cal brethren in Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas, and that we eaf?iirLa^ ^ lb*s success against the old leaeral Whig party in its last disguise and under its new name to hope for the success of the united Democracy of this State against its traditional enemy, under whatever organisa tion or form of coalition it may present itself. Mr. Cassidy offered the following resolution: lxtsolvtdy That we regard the organisation of bands of armed borderers, and their intru sion into the territory of Kansas, not as bovi fide settlers, but for the forcible subversion of the rights of its legal electors, not only as a violation of the peace of the Union, and the rights of the community assailed, but as dis tinctly subversive of the intent of Congress, as declared in the bill orgniiing the said territo ries to leave the people free to form and regu late their own domestic institutions, in their own way, subject only to tho Constitution of the United States, and that all the power of the federal and territorial government should be exerted to redress these outrages and to vindicate the rights of the people thereof. Oa motion of Mr. Van Buren, (John,) this resolution was amended by adding a clau e, iV1*']!10 ^euiosracy of New York will taitiiiully adhere to all the compromises of the Constitution, and maintain all the reserved lights of the Mates; and that they deem this an appropriate occasion to declare their hostility to the extension of slavery into free territory This amendment being agreed to; as amend ed; the above resolution was also passed.
