Communications from the Mayor were re ceived. and, with various petitions, were ap PrIjnrmot!Jn^Mr4 Smith, the Board took up the resolution in relation to the late police of Mr. kusey moved that the question be port ioned in order that the Mayor ? nominations might be taken up ; postponed. Prior to proceeding to rote on the nomina tion*. Mr. Busey stated the eourse of action he should pursue on the nominations. He should make no factious opposition. The competency of the nominee would be the main question In deciding his vote, with one or two excep tions. He would not rote for any man who bad changed his politico a day or two before the election for the purpose of getting office. The rote being taken on the nomination of James M Carlisle, for Corporation Attoroay, he received 14 rotes, and was declared to be confirmed unanimously. h. J. Klopfer was confirmed as Bookkeeper by a rote of 10 to 4 The nomination of Andrew J. Locke was rejected by a vote of 10 to 4 Mr- Dove inquired what the objection was to the nominee ? Why didn't tha opposition come out openly and state their grounds of opposition. He objected to this fighting in the bush. Mr. Busey said no threats of chastisement, which he understood had been mado, would intimidate him. He understood that the nom inee was in bad health, and ha was evidently unfit for the office Mr. Dove said it had been the custom here tofore, when changes have been made, to have a committee of investigation, and contended that it was the proper course in this case. He would like to hear a repetition of Mr Busey'? remarks about ''threats 1 Mr Busey replied that he didn't allude to him, (Mr Dove ) Mr. Dove gave notice of a motion of recon sideration of tbe rejection oi Mr. Locke at the next meeting. The nomination of Joseph E Rawlings, as Commissioner of Improvements in the first dis trict was rejected by a vote of 10 to 4 Mr Dove gave notice of reconsideration at the next meeting. Mr Buoey gave as a reason for voting against tbe nominee that he had changed his politics lately. Mr Smith said he would very frankly state that he objected to the nominee on the ground that he had belonged lately to the American party. He might make a very good officer for aught he knew. Mr Miller objected te the past crime* of the nominee being raised against him He thought he was not so badly tainted by his late associations but that be might reform (Laughter.) Mr Dove stated that Mr. Rawlings bad withdrawn from the Know Nothings some time ago. The nomination of R B. Owens, as Com missioner of tbe Second District, was rejected by a vote of 9 to 5 The nomination of Thomas (J Barrett, as Commissioner of the Third District, was re jected by a vote of 9 to 5. Mr Busey said he had no charge of incom petency to make against Mr Barret, but he considered it an outrage to bring a citisen from another Ward to fill the most important office in the Fifth and Sixth Wards Mr Moore expressed a hope that some one who had voted in the negative would make a motion to reconsider in the case of Owens, and Mr. Houston thereupon made that motion. The nomination of James Espey, as Com missioner of the Fourth District, was confirmed unanimously, whereupon tome laughter en sued in consequence of an intimation upon the part of the anti-Know Nothings, that the vote looked suspicious, and as if Mr. Espey must be a member of the Order. Oeorge H Fulmer was confirmed as Com missioner of the Washington Asylum by a vote of 8 to fi W Bruner, for the same position, was con firmed unanimously, Mr. Smith being excused frcm voting. Mr. Busey gave notice of a motion to recon sider tho vote by which Mr. Fulmer had been confirmed. E F. yueen was confirmed by a vote of 8 to 6. Mr. Evans asked and was excused from voting on this nomination. Mr. Bayly moved to excuse him for the bal ance of tbe evening.

William Wise, do., was confirmed by a vote of 8 to 6. Mr. Emery, having voted in the negative on Mr. Wise's appointment, asked leave to change his vote, he believing Mr Wise to be a good man and well qualified for the situa tion. Mr Emery's vote being changed, the vote on the confirmation of Mr. W ise was an nounced as standing 0 to 5. Hiram Riichey was confirmed as Sealer of Weights and Measures by a vote of 9 to 5. Jos W Martin was unanimously confirmed as Inspector of Fire Apparatus. The question coming up on the nomination of James W . Baggott, as Chief of Police, Mr Smith said that the bill before the Board wruld, if passed, materially change the police system, and he thought the nomination had better be laid over Mr. Miller thought they Lai better confirm Mr. Baggott, and then legislate him out again if necessary. Mr Busey thought it was necessary they should elect somebody. Tbe question being taken tbe nomination was rejected by a vote of 8 to 6. Mr. Dove gave notice of a reconsideration.

This fate be.oil a very elaborate monumental transparency from the Seventh Ward, on which the Genius of Liberty, in a blue gown, represented in a bent position, with her hands pressed upon her stomach, with an ap pearance of acute agony, as if she were suf fering from the summer complaint and was in the last stage of collapse. A sailor, on the reverse side, was represented straddled like the Colossus of Rhodes, and with legs dis tended at so obtuse an angle as terribly to threaten the integrity of the seat of his pant aloons. The meeting was presided over by Mr. Jos. U. Bradley, who made a few opening remarks, but he was evidently not in the enthusiastic mood, nor was the audience. Gen. McCalla defined his position and read U!** r99oluti<jD$ (Alienee still out of spir Senator Crittenden was brought forward, but he too was laboring under the prevailing blues, and failed to pump up any enthusiasm. Ao ill'ftdfiscd imitation of th6 Dcmocrftt ic meeting, double-stand speaking, resulted in a failure, as the meeting, though respectable in point of sue was not large enough to bear dividing. W e have no doubt the Know Noth ings will rectify all these little errors in fu ture ; and bv holding their mass meetings iu some school-house make a pretty rospectable show* ?? Disgraceful Know Nothing Riot.? The Mayor wa3 promptly on the ground at the Know Nothing meeting, as was his duty, to preserve order, and while in the exercise of this duty he came across a party of boys, and boyish men whe were gathered on the steps in the vicinity ef the speakers stands, drinkirg whisky from a bottle, and making a general disturbance, being a portion of the same party of Sam's followers whom Mr. Bradley had oc casion to rebuke so pointedly for disturbing the speakers by their mandlin rowdyism Ihe Mayor very properly attempted to check tho disturbance, and while doing so, was as saulted by these rowdies, who wero encour aged by men standing by, who, too cowardly to incur the odium of the dastardly act them selves, *gged on these boys and rowdies to attack the Mayor. The chaste rallying cries of "Gumballs" and "Chunkers" meantime was raised, and a large crowd of these pre cious specimens of humanity gathered round the Mayor, striking him with fists, stones aod slung-shet, shouting hurrah for " Sam," and swearing like so many demons. The police officers, and members of the aux iliary guard, who endeavored to penetrate the crowd were resisted by the gang of rowdies. The Mayor, while endeavoring to seize and carry away a person who had struck him, with a ston?, was disabled momentarily by a stroke from a slung-shot upon tho back of the neck. The Mayor, accompanied by some of the officers, made his way with difficulty towards the guard house, and on reaching toe market was joined by Captain Mills, whereupon the skulking slung-shot rowdies made way for him to pass. A fellow with a fiddle now followed the Mayor, scraping away, at the instigation of these brave " Samites," whereupon Captain Mills attempted to arrest the fiddler, but was struck on the back of the head with a slung shot, and the prisoner escaped. The crowd continued to follow the Mayor until he entered the Kirkwood House The rowdy gang lingered here, shouting, throwing stones firing pistols, Ac., for a while and then dispersed. The Mayor reached his own residence about midnight. He is at his office to-day in the exercise of his duties, and though somewhat bruised is we are glad to hear not seriously injured. The disgracefully lying reports which the rowdies have started to shield themselves will injure none but themselves Several officers were bruised and beaten, among them Officers Cooper and Reynolds. The names of the most prominent actors have been obtained, and others who were there can be identified as soon as seen again All will be reported to the Grand Jury, without re spect of persons, and it is the sinoere wish of all good citizens that they will be punished to the extent of the law. Mr. Wm Palmer, well known to the ma sical professors and amateurs of Washington, died suddenly yesterday at Liberty Hall, Pennsylvania avenue, near Fifteenth street He went into the hall about one o'clock, and, attempting to sit down, fell upon the floor. He was helped to a seat, and appearing to bo unwell. Mr. Hammack, one of the proprietors, helped to move him to a refreshment room, where he could rest himself without being disturbed. In this room he remained until his groans again attracted the attention of Mr. Hammack, who sent for physicians and at the same time had Mr. Palmer removed to a bet ter position in the passage. He was taken with convulsions, and after a relief from them he died before the physicians arrived. The physicians in attendance decided that the death was oaused by disease of the heart. The deceased is not, as stated by a cotem porary, Prof. William H. Palmer, (Robert Heller,) but an uncle of that gentleman. Court or Claims.?Yesterday, Justice Scarburgh delivered the opinion of the court on the reargument of the case of Sturges, Burnett, <k Co.; favorable Bill ordered to reported. Judge Blackford dissenting. Chief Justice Gilchrist delivered the opin ion of the court in the case of Thomas Phoe nix, jr.; unfavorable to the olaim. Ali?o, in the case of Rhodes A Austill; fav orable. Bill ordered to be reported. Also, in the case of William Neil and oth ers : unfavorable to the cluim. Robert C. Gilchrist, of Charleston, S. O., was sworn an attorney of the court. The Solicitor being unable to attend oourt, no further business was done ; and the court then adjourned to Saturday next. Fooli8u Wager?A young man named Cavilland, from Iowa, made a bet that he could drink a pin? of whisky and walk from the lower part of the Seventh Ward to the City Hall without staggering. A young man who was with him said that he walked straight enough until he got within two hundred yards of the bridge on Seventh street, when he fell and had several convulsions. He recovered sufficiently to walk home, helped by his friend. We predict that he will not make another wager of the kind shortly. Comb, why will you suffer all the ilffe of bed bugs, cockroaches, moths, ants, and every other species of insects when Lyon's Magnetic Powder will surely rid your house of all such pestilence.

After considerable drumming up yesterday evening, the Know Nothings mustered quite a respectable procession to attend the mass ratification meeting in your city. Being a lit tle anxious to know how many old line Whigs (those who had not long since united with the Know Nothing party) would accompany them, we watched the line pretty closely as it passed out Bridgo street, and we confess if there was any in it we were unable to discover them. We did, however, to our utter surprise dis cover borne in the line the old Whig banner. This trick, bj the old tars say, "took us all aback." We wondered how it was possible that they would consent to march under the banner of a party which had been denuunced by one of their pet leaders (the Hon. H. W. Davis) as " the rump of a dishonest, and broken down party." The glorious old em blem of other days seemed to hang its head and blush as the light now and then fell full upon it and soliloquise thus : "Oh, Doolittle, Doolittle, yon have brought your pigs to a fine market at hut." Thev also carried in the line quite a multitude of transparencies. Decidedly the cheapest and most desirable excursion which we have have seen advertised for the Fourth, is the- one which is going to Harper's Ferry on the fine packet Arago. Every inducement is offered the seekers of pleasure of recreatiou to avail themselves of its advantages Only think of it; for the email sum of f3 50 you can have the pleasure of riding over one hundred and twenty miles, seeing beautiful and romantic scenery, the government works at the Ferry, feast upon nil the delicacies of the season, and that, too, without any fear of being blown up or run off the track. The pupils of Mr. P. A. Bowen's mathemat ical and classical academy are preparing to give us, on Thursday, a rich literary treat in the way of an exhibition. From our personal knowledge of many of the pupils and the teacher, we havo not a doubt but it will be somcthirg well worthy the attendance of every admirer of youthful talent. In addition to the Sabbath schools already noticed by us that intend publicly to celebra ting the Fourth, we have learned that the West Georgetown Methodist school intend spending the day in the woods of Mrs Dashields, where the Declaration of Independence will be read by Mr. James Calhoun, and an address suit able to the occasion delivered by the Rov. Mr. Gotwalt The day will also be celebrated at the old Georgetown College in their usual appropriate and interesting manner. Notwithstanding the extreme heat of the last week or so, the health of our city continues excellent; never better, to our knowledge, at thii season of the year. The flour market continues firm, with a brisk demand for shipping and other purposes, at S6 23 for good standard brands No change in the grain market since our report of Satur day. S. GA8 HEATER, OR NATURAL LAMPS. Seventy-five Cent* each at Retail. Patented by W. F. Shauf, Botlon, Massachusettt. The following is tfckcn from the Boston Transcript: Gas and Aip. Suwmkr Cooking Stoves, in vented and patented by Mr. W F. Shaw, of Boston, who after experimenting in this line of inventions the past six years, ha* finally succeeded in indenting a most perfect appa ratus, which for utility, comfort, neatness, economy and uniformity of results, surpasses any before invented or offered to the public Mr. Shaw has letters of approval of the scien tific principles adapted by him to his different styles of gas cooking and heating apparatus, from some of the highest professional chemists, who not only approve of those stoves, but have adopted them in their familes. Among the patents which have been granted Mr. Shaw, three have been for gas and air heating and cooking apparatus. As other in ventions have been introduced which are in tended to accomplish the same object, it would be well to state that every invention of Mr. Shaw's has his name and date of patent affix ed to it. and that he will refund the money for any of his apparatus that does not fully ac complish all they are represented to. Hither to the objection to the use of gas and Atmos pheric air mixture as fuel for culinary and heating purposes, has been, that as the mixed gas and air is inflamed on the surface of the wire gauxe, part of the product of combus tion escapes laterally from the wire gauze surface and mixoa with the surrounding atmospheric air, thereby forming not only noxious odors, but those deadly poisom, form ic acid gas and aldehydo, which bocoines ab sorbed by the food, thus rendering it highly deleterious. Mr. Shaw's invention consists in part of surrounding the wire gauze surface with fine ly perforated tin, by which the flame and the products of combustion are supplied with at mospheric air at a very high temperature which he has discovered is actually necessary for a complete chemical union or perfect com bustion of the mixed gases and the entire pre vention of the formation of the above named poisons. As the apparatus is now construct ed, the most sensitive tests cannot detect the least trace of their presence Incommunisa tions received from Prof. A A. Hayes and J. M. Wightman, Esq , the absence of these objections is attributed wholly to surrounding the wire gauxe surface with finely perforated tifi, operating as above stated Messrs. W. F. Shaw A Co., No. 174 Wash ington street, opposite Bromfield street, are making extensive preparation for manufactur ing these apparatus. The most convenient article we have ever used is the cone cooking stovo, which they connect, and leave in ope ration in any room, for the sum of $10, includ ing oven, tea kettle, steamer, pans, flexible pipe, Ac. They have also flat iron heaters S2 75 each, and gas range and stoves from $5 to 80 each, all of which they are happylto ex hibit in actual operation at their Gas Fixture and Gas Fitting WareroemB.

The steamer North America arrived her* this ???Ding, bringing Liverpool dates to Wednosday, the 18th inst., four days later than the Asia s ad rices. The most important feature of the news is that there is now a prospect of the pending difficulties between Great Britain and the United States being soon amicably adjusted. In the Hna?e of Lords. Lord Claretidon stated, in reply to a question from Lord Der by, that it was not the intention of the Govern ment to adviae the Queen to sus|*nd diplo matic relations with America This announce ment was loudly cheered Lord l>erby expreaae-l his satisfaction, but ?aid he regarded the Government's course ea humiliating, and an acknowledgment of error. Lord Clarendon appealed to the House nit to j oin Lord l>erby in pressing the question and the subject *a? then dropped Tbe fund* immediately rose in censequence of the announcement that Mr. Dallas was not to be dismissed Consols for money are quoted at ?4iatf4i.

The preparations for the celebration of the coming anniversary of our national indepen dence are few and far between The Mount Vernon Guards leave the day before for Win chester ; and we suppose private pic nic par tita, amid the green wood shade; fishing par ties, beside the river's brink; excursion par ties to Piney Point, the White llou.-e. and elsewhere, will occupy most of our people, a considerable number of whom will, we pre sume, imbibe a moderate portion of the ex cellent fait df rt> for which ourcity is famous. Last Sabbath was an occasion of consider able interest to that large portion of our cit iiens that worship in the Protestant Ej iscopal Church. At Christ Church, on bunday m>m ing. after an unusually able discourse from Ephesians iv, 24, Bishop Johns adminiHertd the rite of confirmation to thirteen persons, of whom a considerable number were young la dies During the past week there have been services at either Christ or St. Paul s church every evening. The collection on behalf of the Kansas em igant movement proceeds but slowly. We hope that a more commendable feeling will ere long be exhibited on this subject, and the funds come in rapidly. We hear that it is in contemplation to es tablish a new Catholic diocess, the See to be at Washington, and to comprehend within 'ts jurisdiction Alexandria, the District of Co lumbia and the lower counties of Mnryland, and to be called the Diocess of Washington. It is said that the present Bishop of Rich mond. Rev. John McGill, D. D., will be tran^* ferrcd to the new diocess, and that Rev. Mr. Byrne, of 6t Matthew s, is te succeed Dr. M.-Gill at Richmond. Most of our schools have closed St John s Academy closes its seventeenth session with an exhibition at Liberty Hall The weather continues intensely hot. Trade is quite moderate, and our city never more healthy. Am Green uinoer fur fkk?i.h\ in? and pickling, and Celery and While, and Brown and Black Mustard Seed*, for sale by J AS H SH t K F.LI'.
