A communication was received from the Major, announcing hie having signed various bill' The Chair then announced that petition! were in order from different wards. Mr. Pepper presented a petition from S. B. Stewart, in relation to sewers; referred to Second Ward delegation. Also, one from Jonas P. Levy , referred to police committee. Also, from Francis Wheatley, in reference to paving alley in square 517; referred to im provements committee. Mr. Emery presented a petition from A. Hurdle; referred to finance committee. Mr Houston presented a petition from Wm. Aikin and others; referred to improvements committee. Mr. Pearson, from claims committee, re ported back without amendment, a bill for the relief of Je. se Williams; parsed. Mr Busey, from the special committee to whom was referred the Mil regulating the s.tle <>i poisons, reported a substitute, which Mr. B said met the views of the Apothecaries' A?sociation ; passed. Mr. Busey, from the police committee, pre sented a resolution authorising the Mayor to offer a reward of five hundred dollars for the apprehension and conviction of Washington Naylor, who was arrested for burglary, ad mitted to bail by Justice Birch, and has es caped. Mr Miller offered an amendment, instruct ing the Mayor to investigate the circumstances of Nay lor'? discharge. Mr Busey hoped the gentleman would with draw his amendment, lie was in favor of a strict investigation, but thought it should be carried on by the Council. Mr. Milier inquired if the Mayor had not the power to appoint or remove the Captain of the Auxilary Guard ? If so. he had the power to investigate the matter, and was the proper person. Mr. Busey urged that the Mayor, as havinf the appointing power, was not the proper per sun to nave charge of the investigation. The Coun ;l Boards were impartial tribunals, and before or.e or the other board the investiga tion should be conducted. Mr. Busey proceeded to speik of tho differ ent statements published in regard to the m&tter. Mr. Birch's card instead of relieving him, bad impressed him (Mr. Busey) with the idea that there was something wrong about the matter. The card had n.ade a very un favorable impression upon his mind He pro ceeded to read some statements of the card which he thought contradictory. Mr. Miller withdrew his amendment and the re olution of Mr. Busey was adopted. Mr. Pepper offered bill for paving alley in square 517, which wus passed. Mr. Houston, from finance committca, re ported a bill making appropriation tor cleans ing alleys in various wards of the city ; parsed Also, tor the relief of Mathew Trimble and Thomas Bain. A lengthy debate followed when, upon motion of Mr. Marks, the bill was laid upon the table. Mr Pepper, from canal committee, reported a bill making an appropripation of six hundred dollars to repair breakage in canal wall at Twelfth street; parsed Mr. Pepper, iu itk improvements committee, reported a bill authorizing curbstone set and footway paved on east front of square 353; passed. Also, one authorising the construction of a resorvoir eorner of C street south, and Thir teenth street west; referred to improvements committee. Council resolution authorising gutter on Fourteenth street west, between H and I north, to be taken up and relaid, was referred to improvements committee Council bill for the relief of B. W. P. Bal main was passed A concurrent resolution, grading G street north, between Twenty-first and Twenty-sixth streets west, was referred to Second W ard delegation. A bill for the relief of John W. Stevens was passed Mr Busey, from police committee. Intro duced a resolution instructing the poliee oom mittee to inquire into the circumstances re lative to the arrest and admission to bail of Washington Naylor by the Captain of the Auxiliary Guard. Mr Miller offered a substitute instructing the Mayor to institute a critical examination into the circumstances which led to the dis charge, upon insufficient bail, of Washington Xaylor, charged with being concerned in sun dry burglaries and other criminal offences, and if, upon fair and impartial examination, it should appear that the Captain of the Aux iliary Guard, or any other officer appointed by the M r, now in the employment of the Cor poration, conr.ived at, cr was in any manner accessary to the escape of said Naylor, or that the said Naylor escaped from any remissness or neglect of the Captain of the Auxiliary Guard or other officers iu the employment of the Corporation, or if the Captain of Auxilia ry Guard admitted said Naylor to bail know ingly or wittingly, or without having properly informed himself of the character or suffi ciency of the bail offered for the appearance of said Naylor, the Mayor be, and is hereby requested to take the ncoessaiy steps to have the said Captain of the Auxiliary Guard and others to be discharged from the position which they may hold under the Corporation or appointment fr.m the Mayor. Mr Miller stated that he bad just had an interview with the Mayor, who informed him that wi'nesies had been examined and an in vestigation > f the matter entered upon. The Mayor, the Corporation Attorney, and the Dis trict Attorney were now investigating it. Mr Smith was opposed to prescribing what the Mayer should do. The Mayor would very naturally a-t according to the evidence be fore him The substitute would prejudge Mr. Birch without trial. Let us proceed like men possessing that most beautiful attribute? charily ; and if we find him derelict in duty icake an example of him Mr. Birch had hitherto maintained an unblemished reputa tion in this community. Mr Miller said be did not design to argue the question. He thought the Council had no control in the matter. The captain of the Auxiliary Guard wa* not confirmed by them, and he might refuse to appear before the police committee. Mr Pepper said if the Board had nothing to do with it why meddle with it at all? Ho believed the Board had all to do with it. The oalj difference betwoen that officer and those made by the Buard was that he was paid bj the I nited States. He thought there waa ''inething about the matter which should be looked into. Mr. 1/jve explained why he should vote ig*iu*t the substitute. The resoluti'of the V lice committee had received his consent be f re being reported, and he could not now con sistently do otherwise thau sustain the resolu tion Mr. Smith stated that from h>a knowledge Captain Birch, he had no duuot he would cheerfully appear before the police committee Mr Houston said it was due to that officer, Jii i to the c >mmit:ee, and due to the commu that the subject should be investigated tie objo<*ted to the substitute as pre-supposing 'hat the M-iyor would not do his duty. Mr Miller expressed himself as indifferent at<,ut the adoption of the substitute since he 'Sarncl that the Mayor had taken the matter up After some further debate the substitute **s rejected, and the resolution of Mr. Busey ?Jupted. Coaacil bill fur the relief ot B. K. Morsell *** referred to elaims committee. Mr Clarke presented an amendment to the prescribing the order in which reports fr^tn committees should be received ; which ?as adopted. Mr Miller offered a bill for repairing pave u*ents iu square 254 ; passed. Mr I> presented a communication from tUe VV estern Commissioner of Canals, in refer ence to *?v?nteenth street wharf; referred. , ' ?*y'y offered a resolution requesting Jne Mayor to report the bank accounts of the Corporation; adopted. The Board then adjourned ^xjtbx Market ?The principal market opened this morning with a much smaller show than usual. This was probably caused by prospect for rain last night Til Gbbat Salb -?The reader in want of ornaments for the parlor or chamber, of ex quisite design and artiatio finish, at very low rates, should carefully read Mr. McGuire's advertisement of his great sale of artielas recently imported by the celebrated Philadel phia house of Vito Viti A Sons, who haYe so often disposed of large quantities of their beautiful wares in WMhington in the same way. For, perhaps, twenty years past, the house of Veto Vite has been at the head of the business of importing Italian ornamental work, of all descriptions, into this country. Their importations are already scattered orer the United States from Maine to California, and are to be found almost wherever persona of ^ood taste are themselves to be found. Their faoilities in their business enable them to be content with what are really very low prices, indeed, for their beautiful articles, all of which are precisely what they are repre sented to be. We say this with confidence arising from the well known character of the house, which stands as high in Philadelphia as any other mercantile establishment whatever in that emporium. Supreme Court?Yesterday, James C. Carter, Esq., of New York, was admitted an attorney and counsellor of this court No. 138. The New York and Virginia Steam ship Company, owners of the ateamer Roanoke appellants, vs. George Hotchkiss- Appeal from the Circuit Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York. The matters in controversy having been agreed and nettled between the parties, it is ordered that this cause be dismissed, with oost*. No. 80 J. W. Goalee et al., owners of the steamboat Autocrat, appellants, vs. Theo. Sbute et al., owners of the steamboat Magno lia. The argument of this cause was com menced by Mr Sargent for the appellants and continued by Hon. J. P. Benjamin for the ap pellees. Adjourned. Fights.?The neighborhood of Third street and Maryland avenue was visited last Sun day by a number of young gentlemen, who considered it no disgrace to get into a fight with men and women. It was quite boisterous for a time in that vicinity; but the officers were engaged at the time in another part of the ward, or all the parties would have been arrested. Another fight came off near the same place, on Maryland avenue, shortly after. In the last men only were engaged It was unfortunate that the officers were so busy at the time, as all exhibitions of this disgraceful character ought to be put down. Watson, who wai sent to jail for swindling, and attempting to swindle, various members of Congress, has been charged, since his ar rest, with obtaining money in the same man ner from Hon Mr. Woodworth, of Illinois. The amount he got from this gentleman was 560 From the letters found in his possession we presume that he has a list of aliases. Those found upon his person recommend Jno. H C. Johnson, Jno. Henry Watson, Mr Geo. W. Taylor. He also had a certificate, pur porting to come from Dr. J Dunbar, of Balti more. Court of Claims ?Yesterday, Hon E. Louis Lowe, of Maryland, and Samuel E. Guiloe, Esq , of Boston, were admitted to prac tice A3 attorneys in thia court. The argument in the case of N. Ward, claiming the payment of certain loan-office certificates, vs The United States, was made by Mr. Rockwell, who was followed by the Solicitor, who argued that the case might go upon the trial docket, and that all questions of law and fact should be heard and decided at the same time. Adjourned. Something New.?On the way to the Post Office this morning our attention was called to a new and handsomely arranged Restaurant on the corner of E and Seventh streets. Having looked through and sampled the establish ment, not the leaat attractive feature of which was an assortment of terrapin, canvas t.ack, asparagus, Ac., and finding all things about right, we take pleasure in reoommending it to our readera. For prices, Ac , see advertise ment ?? Peddling ?Officor Hurly of the first dis trict police, yesterday arrested a young woman for peddling goods without license. She was taken before Justice Stevens, who released her on security for a further hearing to-day. The gooda ahe was selling were valuable silks, shawls, Ao They were left with the magis trate until the case is decided. The young woman appeared to be ignoranfrof the require ments of the law in relation to peddling. Depositions.?We understand that various depositions to the drunkenness of Washington Naylorin the early part of Thursday night iact were taken yesterday before Justice D. Smith. We have not yet been able to ascertain the names of the parties who came forward to swear in this case, or the nature of the case in which they were sworn. Be Careful.?Persons arriving by car riages in the city after dark, and passing through the streets where thero are no gas lights, should be careful to drive slowlv and keep a good look out. The streets are being repaired in maay places, and persona are re ceiving coal in other places. The banks of stone and coal, and the hollows in the streets, might cause severe injury. The Escapb of Natlor ? From Captain Birch we learn that Mr Hammack had a hearing last evening, and the witnesses, Messrs. Owens and Abbott, testified that they did not see Hammack and Washington Nay lor together on the morning of his escape, but Hammack was with William N aylor. Wasbington Lodge, I. O. 0. F , accom panied by Mount Nebo Encampment and members of the Grand Lodge, yesterday after noon conveyed to Oak Hill Cemetery the re mains of their deceased brother, Edward Godey. The funeral rites of the order were conducted by P. G. M. John T. Clement!. Superb Pickled Oysters are those pre pared by Mr Julius Do Saulea, and of which r.e baa sent us a delightful sample. Mr. De Saules' establishment is at No. 294 Pennsyl vania avenue, corner of Fourtetnth street, where all who are in quest of delicious bivalves put up in the most approved style will find exactly what they want. Fire Alabm ?The alarm of fire at ten o'clock last night brought out the firemen, who had a long run with their apparatus to wards the First Ward. There appeared to be some belligerent feeling among those who fol lowed the apparatus, tut it created no diffi culty. _________ Navy Yard, ) Washington, April 14, 1H56. J Editor of the "Star":?The enclosed letter was received by mi late last evening; so you see I have but a short time to remain in Washington.

We understand that the manner in whieh the work has been conducted upon the Wash ington aqueduct, under the direction of Capt Meigs, and the progress which has been made, gave universal satisfaction to those members of Congress who made an excursion to the premises on Saturday last. Even some who have heretofore been rather indifferent in re gard to this great and important improvement, give it as their opinion, after having surveyed the progress which has already been made, that it ought not to be retarded a single day in consequence of a want of means to puah it forward. The excursion was made on beard the beautiful and popular canal packet M C. Meigs, of the Mesars. Bitter's line. W U. Ritter. Esq., accompanied the party, and gained for himself no small amount of praise for bis accommodating deportment and seal oue efforts to render the excursion one of real pleasure to his honorable gueata. Mr. Qau tier, of your city, wrved up the refreahmente in his own peculiar style?not to be beat The M C Meigs is constantly in readiness for excursions to the above named or other points. The leak at the Seneca lock, which caused a suspension of navigation upon our canal, having been repaired, business begins to wear again quite a lively and cheerful aspect. The quantities of flour, grain, wood, Ac., now arriving, are very considerable. Friend Shoe maker, and his efficient deputy W Q. Cla baugh. inspected yesterday about 5,000 bbls of the first named article, all of which ar rived the previous two days Several boats from Cumberland, with coal, have also ar rived. Business along our river wharvea also looks quite encouraging. Though the author of the acurrilloua and vu'gar communication which was sent to our city councils on last Friday night may yet be Tanning at large and mingling among respec table people, the fact of his having forged the signature of one of our most respectable eiti E9ns to said communication, proves conclusive* ly that he ought to be in tne keeping of the General Government. We would suggest that the gentleman into whose bands the letter wee placed for presentation, make some effort to trace it to the real author, that be may be placed before the community in hia proper light, or pointed out to some of the Washing ton officers. Fishtown is in full blast. The supply is fully equal to the demand. Shad are selling at f8a$10 per hundred, and herrings S6aS7 per thousand The flour market this morning is rather dull; holders are holding on, and buyers are holding off. to see the effects of the foreign news on the Northern markets; held at S6 75 a$7, as in quality.
