From the very first age of Christian ity. the commemoration of our Saviour's suf ferings has always been observed as a day of the strictest fasting and humiliation; "not that the grief and affliction they then expressed, did arise from the loss they sustained, but from a sense of the guilt of the sinaof the whole world) which drew upon oo r blessed Redeemer that painful and shamefid death of the oross."

[CUlfMClUCATBD. t,aitor: Mr. Richardson in yesterday's star has replied to my inquiry of a few days previous, in relation to stopping 7 tens of mailable matter at a velocity of 700 feet per second. I am obliged to Mr R for his reply ? at the same time I must say that it is alto gether unsatisfactory, and so much at rariar.ce with all laws of acienoe, that, with ycur per mission, I will show you and your one hun dred thousand readers, that the Atmospherio Telegraph, as exhibited in Mr R s book, and endorsed by the Senate Committee, is not by any means adapted for practical purposes on the scale that he proposes. Mr. R says that the mile of contained air In the tube next to Washington will be em ployed a? an elastic buffer, to resist and over come the momentum of the load, (he does not say how this mile of air is known to be there ) whether more or less, and that this eompressed air will b ? allowed to escape through the safe ty valve at a pressure of 40 lbs. to the square inch, which amount of resistance will nearly overcome the momentum of the 7 tons, and after it has passed the valve it will be an nounced by the ringing of the bell. Now, fir. 7 tons, at a velocity of 700 feet per second, pttams a momentum of nearly eleven millions of pounds; in other words, his mail bag of 7 tons moving from Baltimore to Washington at the rate of 700 feet in a second, will require eleven millions of pounds to arrest It at Wash ington In his book, he nor his Senate com mittee do not say anything about stopping it; an,d' J2 10 first qweition. he offers enly 18 000 lbs. to stop it. You will readily P*rfe,v? that his 40 lbs to the inch of pressure will not answer at all. Hence the necessitv of some other reply to satisfy ? Iago ' and the public. There will, X opine, be something more than the ringing of the bell to announce \r"w ? ba8g "f 7 10118 wc'gbt at Washington, and I would say to the post master " stand from under ' at its arrival! >ow. ty taking his book and explanation, endorsed by the Senate Committee as data and fccas a guide, his tube, 2 feet in diam eter and 40 miles long, with a capacity of 640,006 cubic f*et, and his 2 pumrs with a capacity of *8,000 cubic feet, will be found entirely inadequate to exhaust the tube in 27 revolutions, or it is* 27 revolutions. The first revolution will perhaps exhaust 43,000 cubic feet, and the air remaining in the tube will become sufficiently rarefied aa to fill the tube and the second revolution of the shaft will ex haust a far less quantity of air at a pressure of 14 lbs tc the square inch, and so on with evcrry subsequent revolution the air will be eoine more rarefied end less of it will be ex hausted Now C hope that Mr. R. and his committee will be enabled tc see why his load will not be able to reach Washington af ter leaving Baltimore as soon as the shaft hss made 27 revolutions Now, sir, I must beg leave most respectfully to differ with Mr. R, and his book endorsed by that committee. I have with all the light at present in view arrived at the eonclusion that the Atmospheric Telegraph will never be of any great practical utility. I shall feel prond to see his 7 tons of mail beat a 2:40 Uurse on the courso from Baltimore to Wash 'ogton. I feel no little interest in thesucce** of Mr R's invention ; at the same time that I feel to be impracticable. I am, however, open io conviction, and shau be much pleased to have my objections removed by Mr Rich ardson, Most respectfully, First Warri, March 20. Iago. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Oaor.uEToyx, March 21, 1856. A fire occurred at about nino o'clock last night, in a frama stable, situated on Mont gomery street, opposite the public school house The stable was the property of a col ored man named Wm. Lewis, and it, together with a quantity of bay, Ao , was entirely con sumed. At the time the fire occurred there wore several fine horses also in the stable, one of which was burned to death. Lewis's loss will be about $500. S.?me suppose the fire was the work of an incendiary, wnile the gen eral impression is that it was caused by some one of a number of boys, who are employed about the stable, going among the bay with a lighted candle or while smoking a cigar This building was situated in the midst of a thickly settled square ; and but for the fact that the surrounding buildings were all very damp and a dead calm was prevailing at the time the fire occurred, much destruction of valuable property would have resulted. This is a warning to our Corporation to enaet at once a law to prevent stables, in the future, from being built alongside of dwelling booses. The vigilant Fire Company and several from your city were promptly on the spot with their apparatus, rendering good service. Trinity (Catholic) church, last night, was literally crowded to overflowing to boar the discourse of the eloquent president of George town College, Rev. B. A. Maguire. Mr M. is a very pleading speaker, and generally at tracts large crowds of all denominations to hear him. His subject last night was an ex fdonation of some of the more important points n the Catholic faith. Fish, in considerable numbers, are begin ning to make their appearance in our market, but the prices which are asked for them are beyond the bounds of reason and the capacity of our pocket. Spectator. Norfolk.?The Rt. Rev. Bishop Johns vis ited Norfolk on Wednesday last, to preaoh, in St. Paul's Church, the funeral sermon of the late lamented pastor of that congregation, the Rev. W. M J<*ekson, who fell a victim to the fatal epidemic, while in the performance of the Christian duties of visiting the sick and the afflicted. On Monday night, the Rev. Mr. Plunkett lectured on the 44 Life and Mission of St Pat rick," and treated his audience, (says the Ar gus,) " to one of the most eloquent displays of pulpit oratory ever enjoyed in this seotion. Uis allusions to the life and services of the veuerab'e and revered Saint, were beautiful, tna-terly, and impressive; and his description of Irish character very able and instructive." iV Some men are like cats. You may stroke the fur the right way for y?ars, and heai nothing but purring; but a03ideutally tread on the tail, and ail memory of former kindness is obliterated. iy The father of a lad 16 years of age, was yesterday called upon to give bonds for his soa's appearanoe to answer a charge otluctns jtne coneibitu, preferred against him by a serving girl in hii father's house.
