The present mode of rr^iin* it with horse manure and spreading it ^h??djoioing fields to be hardened in the *nn and impregnating the atmosphere with deleterious gases, to be distributed through ,hi cftT certainly is not a good arrangement. The e resent location for the manufacture and ??*? in this odious stuff la the worst that SSdE relied, tKiDgon tb, .id. of . r?. rine on Seventh, nesr Boundary street, the itresins of water eminating from which con *" WIth them these heavy gases to the heart of the city, agisted by the prevailing north erlr breeies ILe location of Washington is beautiful in the extreme, surrounded by hills forming a b*-*'11 diversified by the waters of the Pot mic. The view must be seen from a proper point to be appreciated. The pecu liarity of its situation requires that the north ern environs should not be used as receptacles of filth and offensive matter, carrion, Ac., tbev are the lungs of the city and should be kept pure As the air in the basin in hot weather becomes rarified that of the hills is constantly pouring in and keeping up an equi librium. When the weather is temperate the prevailing brceses from the north and west pass over these environs and carry with them health or disease to the city. Keep the envi rons of Washington free fVom the materials that carry death and disease in tbeir train aid there is not a healthier city in the Re public. If the citiiens are willing to permit the present sanitory regulations to remain as they ir< ?considering that some, by the excrement traffic make fortunes, while others are ruined, and it is merely changing from one individual to another, and those who are killed, by the exhalations, merely make room forthose more fortunate who havo constitutions like bus tards?still, for the sake of the large body of ?? journers. it is hoped the evil will be reme died The cititens proper, are only a portion of those affected by impure air Washington being the seat of Government, ftie officers re quired to conduct the business, must reside here. These officers are very properly taken {rem all parts of the nation. Surely they are cot to ne brought here to he deprived of pure air and made subjects of disease that a few may grow rich on the manufacture and traffic in excrement. Our Legislative halls arc filled with men from a distance, who represent the local interests of each part of the Republic, many of them venerable men who have been accustomed to breathe the pure air as nature provides it. To them, a del eterious chansgo, if not fatal, deprives their constituents of the full power of their representation. Foreign ministers and agents as well as individuals, whose presence is required at the seat of Government, and those who come froia a de sire to see and understand, by personal ob servation, how so great a Republic is con trolled and provided for, and numbers who er.j ij wealth and leisure, spend much time in Washington enjoyingthe refined society of other nations whose connection with the Gov ernment locate them here swelling the num ber of sojourners to many thousands?to pro tect the health of whom it is a duty as philan thropist rfelf preservation, nature's first law, urges to the effort?preserve our friends and they will protect us Do not rely on the seat of government being located where nature has, with a lavish hand, arranged so many beau ties and substantial advantages, or on the saiulrity of the climate which the father of our country and his friends selected. Be faithful to the duty assigned you. See that your sanitary regulations are good. Art is now filling the spaces which nature has pro vided for the display of the ingenuity of man The legislatives are progressing cautiously but rapidly towards the completion of the gov ernment buildings to be worthy of the age and the gTeat republic of the western world They are the monuments that we are to pass on to posterity They mark the destiny of kings and ncbility, and yet no traces of them can be found there. They are the monuments 6f a -elf-governcd people, born with equal rights and willing to make any sacrifice to preserve tbeir compact. Surely, those who have the privilege rf living in such an era will exert every effort to be made that will tend to the prosperity of the seat of government of so mighty a people. r. S ?Since writing the above it has been suggestel to us that the M.iyor can remedy the nuisance by requiring all the excrement to be removed a reasonable distance be yond the city limits, and there emptied in trenches of from four to five inches deep, and then sprinkle a little earth over them, after which it will not be effensive until again moved, which should only be permitted du ring the months of December, January, Feb ruary and March. By this mode the entire strength of the fertilizing properties will be retained, and agriculturists will have a bettei article, at a less price, yielding an equal profit to the trader, as all the labor of spreading on the ground, drying in the sun and gathering t getber into heaps again will be saved In deodorizing a portion of the fertilizing prop erties are destroyed To deodorise properly requires a class of men who can rarely be i: ? duced to engtge in the traffic, hence the stench arising from the deodorizing procegs as prac ticed in our city. Cobosku h Ixyi'EST ?On Saturday last, Coroi.er Woodward held an inquest, at Beck ert s li .tel, over the body of Capt C W Bell, alias Casper Kohrinan, who was killed in the riot at the Park on the evening of the 4th in star t A post m rteni examination was made by Drs. J. II Jordan and Johnson .Elliott, who stated that the fatal wound was inflicted in the back near the tpine, severing one of the ribs ai,d a principal artery, and entering the right lung About twenty witnesses were examined, whose testimony was very conflicting. It wa? stated that \\ m Sullivan and John Eggleston had each said they had inflicted the wound ; that one ot them. Eggleston, we understand, displayed the knife in a tavern on Seventh street; that they went to Kggleston's home, where Sullivan said to Egglestoa:8 brother-in law that he (Sullivan) had killed a Dutch man Other witnesses proved the riot, and named some who were engaged in it, among them Daniel and Isaiah Stewart The jury, after a long consideration of the testimony, returned a verdict, the substance of which i?, that from the conflicting testimony they are unable to say who struck the fafctl blow, but are satisfied that it wa-i done cither by Wm. Sullivan or John Eggleston during a not in which several persons were engaged, among them Daniel and Isaiah Stewart Officer Keese explained wiy the deceased came to take the name of Bell It appears that some years since, when the deceased fol lowed the sea. he was accused of being en gaged it? the slave trade, was tried and con victed, but subsequently pardoned. He then quitted the sea altogether, and in order to re gain his former good name he assumed the name of C. W Bell Many witnesses are yet to be summoned at tae further hearing. The two Stewarts have been re .eased on $1,000 bail, the evidence not ?iirectly connecting them with the killing of Bell. _____ Kksionatiow AMD Pbomotio*.?At the last mtctirg of the Board of Trustee's of the pub lic school/, the resignation of Miss Hattie R. caker, principal of primary No. 3, of first district, was accepted, and a vote of thanks parsed for her attention in the duties of the school, Ac Miss Jane M. Thompson, the ac complished assistant in that school was pro mud to the position vacated by Mis? Baker, and Miss Richey was chosen assistant in place cf Mus Thompson.

The Annual Exhibition of thh Washing ton Seminary wis held to-day atCarusi's Sa loon The annual exhibition of this school, it is well known, is a public event, and never fails to draw a large assemblage. The exei c ises of to-day sustained the high reputation of this school, and the handsome manner in which the pnpils acquitted themselves elicited the warmest approbation from the large au dience present. We have only room to-day to give the order of these very interesting ex ercises: Prologue?Latin by Geo. P. Murray, Eng by"Wm. A Hayes; Rest?Andrew Jack son ; The Holydays?Jno. F.

Ferris; Address to the Students, by John C. C. Hamilton, Esq. The exercises concluded with the distribu tion of prises. Celebration of the Fourth ?The Assem bly's church Sabbath school spent a delight ful day in Clendenin's grove, near the Glen wood Cemetery. At an early hour a large congregation assembled at the church to wit* ness the presentation of a most splendid ban ner, painted by the renowned artist, Stanley. Mr W. H. Powell delivered the presentation address, and was responded to on the part of the school by Mr. J T Hoover. This banner, costing from 80 to 90 dollars, and richly orna mented with silver lacing, Ac , has on the front an angel, over which are these words, "Our Guardian," and below " Assembly'* Church." Oa the opposite, " Presented to tl ? Sabbath School of the Assembly's Church, July 4, 1856. The procession, numbering more than 200. was now formed. First came the pastor, elders and trustees, and a fire band of music, then the school and congre gation, accompanied by the children of the Protestant Orphan Asylum, who were present by special invitation. At the grove the band played several national airs?the school on* pitted in singing, and after prayer by the Rev. Mr. Carothers, the Declaration of Inde pendence was read by Mr. W. M Robert-on, the Farewell Address of Washington by Mr. John E. O'Brien, and addresses were deliver ed by the pastor, Messrs. Jordan, Radstrake, McL&in and others A sumptuous dinner was m>w enjoyed. Aftsr an address to Mr Clen denin, thanking him for the use of his woods, and giving him three cheers, the school re turned to tho church and were dismissed. This was one of the most spirited and success ful celebrations of the Fourth. A Rare Chance. Indeed ?The adminis tratrix upon the estate of the late John H. King, offers for sale forty five acres of the farm on which Mr K resided, and which he improved so remarkably The part for sale ombraces the highest land in the District of Columbia, being four hundred feet above tide water, though within half a mile of the Po tomac, all the windings of which, from the Falls to Fort Washington, are within the range of the observer's eye from it It con tains a grove of some twenty acres of fine natural timber from which this magnificent view, including the whole of Washington and Georgetown, may be seen. The tract embraces also a young orchard of about a thousand choice apple and peach trees in full bearing. The buildings on it are a very comfortable cottage, containing six rroms and a kitchen, with sufficient out-houses. The price asked for this property, which lies but about a mile and a quarter from the Georgetown omnibus stand, is very moderate indeed The roads leading to it are the finest in the District, and are not toll roads. Alto gether this property is really the most de sirable for a rural residence in the neighbor hood of this city, now obtainable. The Western Prembtterian Church Sab bath School.?An error having crept into our original account of the celebration of the Fourth by this school, we now present our readers with a correct statement of tbeir doings on that occasion. Thus, they celebrated the day very agreeably at the Gen. Van Ness grounds by invitation from its very generous proprietor, Mr. Thos C Green, whose magnifi cent mansion, spacious and beautiful grounds, ad well as his attentive and well trained ser vants. were all assigned to the use of the school and its friends from morning until night. Nor were the usual and appropriate ceremonies en tirely omitted. Mr J. W. Easby read the Declaration of Independence, and appropriate remarks by Mr. Wilson and the Pastor preceded the singing of some suitable hymns. The school was dismissed at tundown at the resi dence of the superintendent At night, the gayer portion of the assemblage adjourned to the house of Dr. Van Patten, where, as on former Fourth of-July occasions, they and and other friends fared sumptuously. Arrest of John Egoi.kston.?Last night, a posse of men, detailed from the auxiliary guard by Captain Mills, in connection with a number of the city police, all under the direc tion of Captain Baggott, went in search of Sullivan and Eggleston, charged with the murder of Captain Bell, alias Casper Kohr man. When near Mr. Samuel Tanner's (Eg gleston's brother in laws's) house in the First Ward, they were seen by Tanner and Eggles ton, and, finding that they were entirely sur rounded, Eggleston decided to make good bis retreat to the jail, and, in company with Tan ner, succeeded in getting to the jail, closely followed by the posse. The warrant was served by Officer Williamson, and the prisoner committed for a further hearing by Justice Daniel Smith. Eggleston said but little, and was apparently not much affected by his ar rest As he left the guard room he remarked " this is a bad business " Our Public Schools ?To day commences the interesting annual examinations of the public schools, and which will be continued from day to day up to the 28th inst. The fe male primaries are to be examined by a single trustee ; the male primaries by the sub-board of each district; and the district schools by the whole board. The examination closes with tho distribution of medals, preurums, Ac., *nd with a psocessiun to tho Capitol grounds, where they are to be addressed by Joseph H Bradley, Esq ,'and other gentle men The friends of the public schools and the public are invited to attend the examinations, which will generally commence at 3 o'clock on each afternoon, except Saturday, of the next two week?. It will ao much to encour age the teachers and pupils if there shall be a good attendance on the part of those who support and patrjnise them. Death or a Stranger ?Mr. W T. Bales tier, of New Orleans, arrived in this city by the Stuthetn boat, at six o'clock on Saturday morning, and was conveyed in a weak and dving condition to the Kirkwood House The Messrs. Kirkwood, with their accustomed kindness of heart and indifference to trouble or expense, where the calls of humanity are concerned, were unremitting and devoted in their attentions to the dying stranger Dr. Berry and Dr. Miller were immediately sent for. the former of whom remained at the bed side of Mr Balestier until his death, which took place at one o'clock this afternoon. The M asonic fraternity of this oity, of which the deceased was a member, have taken tho body in charge, and are now making suitable ar rangements for the funeral ?Union, Sutur day evening. The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, for the week, up to the letting out of the water on the Georgetown level on Thursday evening, did a fir<e business. The Lonaconing Company's aqueduct was tested on Friday t>y letting in water to the depth of five feet, and answered well.?(Jntun, Saturday evening. Funeral or Bell ?The funeral of Bell, who was murdered at Beckert's on the 4th, took place from that point yesterday. The body was followed to the grave by a long pro cession, including thirty two carriages. Arrest of Sullivah.?About four o'clook thia morning Officer Keese and a detachment of the auxiliary guard, detailed for the pur po e by Captain Mills, succeeded in arresting Sullivan, one of the party concerned in the murder of Bell. Sullivan was traced to his own residence last night, and the premises were closely watched by the guards; this morning they found him concealed in the house He was taken to the county jail, and committed by Justice Qoddard. Sullivan and Eggleston are both young men, neither being apparently over thirty years of age. Eggleston is married, and we believe Sullivan is also. We are informed that Eggleston is a butcher by profession, and Sullivan a carpenter Montoovrry Guards.?We are pleaded to learn that this company is in a prosperous con dition, and that at a meeting held a few even* ings since, Nicholas Callan, one of our most esteemed citizens, was unanimously elected first lieutenant, to fill a vacancy occurring. Mybrs, the German who was so badly beaten at Beckerts, when Captain Bell alias Eohrman was killed, is still confined by his injuries, and yesterday some doubts of his re covery were entertained. Thrkatbning.?Yesterday a man namod Bailey was arrested on English liill for rush ing into a crowd of persons and threatening their lives. He had in his hands a double barrell gun. He was sent to jail by Justice Smith, and released this morning. Thb Fugitive Bay.?It is reported that Ray was seen yesterday in the First Ward ; and that a party of citizens entered upon a chase, which terminated unsuccessfully. Watch Retitrhs.?Daniel Batson, fugitive slave; jail. Georzo Welch, assaulting his wife; jail. Wm. Ball, drunk; reprimanded and dismissed. James Moran, disorderly ; dismissed.
