We are requested to say, io reply to itquiries in reference to tho routes of travel from the Metropolis to the great West, that the route presenting the most immediate and palpable advantages is tbat which begins at the foot of the Capitol itself, und extends its iron arm il*? t?vth* ??io with?at break or joint. Itis w the Baltimore and Ohio rail road, whose agent here furnishesthe traveller with his through ticket to almost every city and town west of the Alleganies, and who checks his baggago (no small advantage) as far as Cincinnati, Indianapolis,and St Louis The hieU rical and natural scenery that envi rons th:s great railway adds so materially to its other attractions that the westward-bound traveler who has not yet beheld its interest ing features has yet much in store for him . The Ohio river between Cincinnati and Lou L? . ?cd below- is 8ai<l to be again naviga te to the passenger steamers Should thi? not be the case, howe\er, the railroad con nection? of this route are now so extended and ?r ram,bed that there is searcely any place of th?

A Noisv PBigo!fBK.-Last night, ? iittle fellow namej John Smith was ukon to tie guard house for throwing atones and usis* profane lungnago in the streets. His yells and oaths attracted a large crowd around tj? station. On the arrival of Justice Hollinw head, this morning, be was sent down to the ?? farm ' for thirty days. r D# Th? Fk* Ststim ?The recent develop ments made by the Grand Jury of this Die trict, through its 1?U presentment to Congress, in regard to the operation! of the msgistraoy and constabulary f thie oity will, we appre hend, induce a general overhauling of what id railed tbe 44 fee system " Tho presentment states that the labors of the grand jury have been greatly increased, and the United States subjeoted to enormous costs, by reason of the magistral* of Washington sending to the court some cases of a frivolous oharaeter, others upon defloient testimony, and by gen erally summoning an unnecessary number of witnesses to establish those facts to "bich they oould testify. The grand iury, which has just closed its sittings, has investigated the large number of two hundred and ninety one eases, and examined more than seven hundred witnesses, but made presentments in only one hundred and fifty-si* of the oases. The practices of the magistrates and con stables have swolleu their accounts against tbe United States to enormous amounts. The Comptroller of the Treasury states that the total amonnt paid and claimed by magistrates and constables, in this District, up to Decem ber 31. 1865, to be $64,526 14 ; that from May 17, 1848, to June 30, 1854, (a period of six years.) the amount paid was $36,196 33; that from July 1, 1854, to December 31, 1855, /a Eeriod of eighteen months only,) was $28,325 0?being but $7 857 25 less than the amount f >r the first six years the law was in force If tbe amount charged for the half year ending 30th inst shall equal the amount paid for the half year ending December 31, 18d5, then tbe expenses of the two years will exceed the ex penses of tbe ill years preceding by the sum cf $4,821 85 ; that the number and disposition of the oases before the magistrates lor the hnlf year ending December 31, 1155, was 6, 798, (at tbe rate of 13,596 par year, or nearly forty per day ;) 44 that 3,821 were discharged on bonds to keep the peace, and 1,959 were dismissed. So that 5,785 oases out of 6,798 were shown to have been so uuimportant as to demand no punishment. Of tbe balance of tbe cases there were nominally 637 committed to jail, 315 bound to appear at court, 61 pun ished?in all, 1,013 ; but in reality tl ^re were but 695 different persons affected in the 1,013 different cases, for several warrants were against the same person in many instances." Mr Riggs, in the presactment in behalf of his associates, gives one or two examples of the process by which such a large number of cases are sent by tbe magistrates to the grand jury, and so many witnesses summoned, and ouoh expenditure of time and money incurred, cf which tbe following is one : '?JucticeB K Morsell, on the complaint of , Catharine Williams, issued twenty-five war rants on five persons, for attempting to poison five persons, on March 15, 1865 The justice ' charged his fees at $1 75 in each case, or $43 75 in all. He charged for swearing 275 witnesses, e'.even in each case, where there were but nine witnesses in oil, being the five poisoned persons, one constable, and three other witnesses These warrants were divided between Constables Allen and Woilard as near as the number would admit of, one haviig thirteen and the other twelve warrants to serve. They charged for serving 225 sum mons, yet there were but nine witnesses in all, and Woilard was charged as a witness in the case sirred by Allen, and Alien wss charged aa a witness in the ease served by Woilard, in order to inako up the nino in each case Upon a reference to the original warrants in these twenty-fir* oases, filed by the constables as vouchors for their fees, the following facts were developed : That instead of twenty-five warrants baring been issued on Mirch 15, as specified by tho aocouuts of Justice Morsell, there wero but sixteen warrants issued, Ac The constables' fees are charged at $70 53; the aggregate cost*, $114 5s Other and, if possible, more flagrant cases could be cited." As a remedy for the evils stated, the grand jury express the opinion that a properly or ganised magistrate's or police court would greatly facilitate justice, nnl result in a large saving of cost to the United States Sbstenpid ?Judge Crawford this morning sentenced Wm. D Bell, butcher, to the county jail for two months, and to pay a fine of $30, in the case the United States vs. Bell. Bell's offence consisted in striking Dr. Henry Haw with his fist The parties are neighbors, and the trouble between them grew out of alleged abusive language to Bell's wife. The Maris a Bakd ?Mr. Mallory presented a petition in tho Senate yesterday, from citi zens of Washing.on, urging some additional compensation to the members of the Marine iiand for their services in ministering to the gratification of the citizens by their musical Eerformances at the Capitol and President's louse. I*fK!??iARY Attimpt?About 12 o'clock last night an attempt was made to fire the blacksmithshop of Mr Wilson, corner of Ma ryland avenue and Seventh street, Island, and the stable of Mr. Indenneur, in the neigh borhood. Fortunatelv the fire was discovered and extinguished before it had done serious damage Thb CovrtAi5T Books are now opon at tho Mayor's office.

Pinet Point.?A few days of pleasure and enjoyment at this delightful place baa induced the writer, through your widely-circulated paper, to make known that the charges and complaints whioh have done so serious an in jury, are without a shadow of foundation I went there with every prejudice. The va rious kinds of fish, oysters, crabs, and las', though not least, (with many,) the contents of the bar were to bo dreaded. After taking a delightful trip in the steamer Columbia, com manded by the steamboat veteran Kava naugh, in company with some of the m<>st charming ladies, we landed at the Point about six o'clock. In a moment my eyes fell upon a cumber of acquaintances, and after exchanging a few words we repaired to our different rooms to prepare for supper Anticipating one of the charges. I made a careful examination. Everything was in perfect order, and those varmints were no where to be found; the bell soon summoned us to supper, and being prepared for a good stor age, I hastened fearing the principle of 4'?rst comc first served;" but, like the bug story, imagine my surprise when I psssed along a mmotuons table as I wae directed to my seat. We had abundance of sheepshead, taylors, croakers, soft and hard crabs, oysters?in fa^t, erery delicacy of the season. 1 was then con vinced great injustice bad been done the pro prietor of this old and pleasant retreat for Wathingtonians. Those little bumming birds (mosquitoes) were said to be devouring all human kind. What will those kind friends say when 1 inform the public during fire days visit I saw but one mosquito. But to return to supper?after eijoying a most delightful repa?t, in company with a number of ladies and gentlemen, we repaired to tbe parlor where we were moat delightfully entertained with rocal and instrumental mu rtc by MissO Miss C Miss T. and Miss B. from this city. Ita'ian music seemed to reign, but occasionally interspersed with some sim ple ballad. It was soon announced the ball room was >P?n, the merry dance was going on as we en Leud, and I can conscientiously say a greater jisplay of beauty and attraction I have sel iom witnessed. It was kept up until a late jour, when I left them to enjoy a pleasant ?est. which I did to my entire satisfaction. Tnaae few lints art written in justice to tk? proprietor, who feels much grieved that those discontented gentlemen did not make known their greivances previous to their departure B PERSONAL. .... hue Adams, Esq., of Boston, and Maj.

It is not commonly known that the re mains of that immortal artist, Raphael?the prince of painters, whether of nnoient or mod ern times?lie entombed within the walls of the Roman Parthenon Raphael, while living, often reveled in the beauties of its architec ture, and requested that his bones might be there deposited. Upon his death, his body, together with his last and noblest work, the Transfiguration, were exposed for three days in the Parthenon, and were visited by crowds His remains were afterwards deposited in a niche formed in the walls and the spot is now marked by a slab suitably inscribed. .... A New York brother reformer of Hor ace Greeley, in a fivo column notice of l,H G , "as manifested by his mateiial organic conformation," says: " Mr Greely is often es dissatisfied with the positions his organization forces him into, as his opponents are; but having once taken them, his conceit makes him defend them He loves find hates his works at the same time? loves them because they are hid own ; and hates them because they are no better?be cause he has no unitary purpose to accoin plish by them, and because he is obliged to defend them, whioh he cannot help doing, as long as he continues to place so high an es timate on his intellect?so little on the power of God. This self-esteem or conceit iu Mr. Greeley is, by many persons, mistaken for firmness, in which he is finite deficient. Mr. Greely is a Dodger. Dodgers are artful?not firm. If Mr. Greely had firmness he would not be running from one extreme to another, and changing hi-! pinns so often. A man deficient in religion and conecien* tiousness can have no fixed purpose. ' Do right, and leave the result to God,' is not Mr Greeley's motto. 'The Tribune and the Ta riff (now, Abolition) first; God and the right next ' When Mr Greeley does seek the truth, he looks for it in the wrong way?through his intellect, instead of to God directly." POLITICAL ITEMS. The York (Pa ) Advocate, heretofore Whig, has hoisted the Fremont and Dayton flag, Mayor Wood, of New York, positively re fuses to be a candidate for Mayor this fall. The Courier of tha Toche, a Whig print, published at St. Martinsville, (La.) has run up the Fillmoro and Donelson banner. The Straight Whig is the title of a campaign paper Just started in Portland, by Charles D. Bearcc. Mr. J i?. Scruggs has become the proprietor and editor of the Piedmort Whig, and that paper will continue to support Mr Fillmore. Why is Fillmore stock looking up? B^'ause it is so flat on its back that it <Mtn look to no other direction ?Memphis Appeal. The Prairie du Chien Courier, Wisconsin Free Soil paper, hoists tho namo of Buchanan and Brcokinridge. Among the guests at Long Branch, N. Y is Judge Dayton, the Republican candidate for the Vice Presidency. A sympathetic correspondence has taken place bet woe n Hon Chas. Sumner and the 44 colored boarders'' at Cape May. The Constitution is the name ot a new Dem ocratic paper whioh has just been started at iJrbana, Illinois. It gcoj for Buchanan and Breckinridge. It turns out, after all, that Greeley and Ben nett don't go for Jessie Fremont. They go for Mary Poxa, whose metal is of an entirely different character. The Vincennes (la.) Gaiette, the Munch Chunk (Pa.) Gazetce, the Plymouth (la:) Banner, and the Daily (Pa.) Times, have all hauled down the Fillmoro and run un the Fre mont flag An exchange says Mr. Buchanan is by trade a printer, and the first one of the craft who has been nominated for the highest offi?e in the gift of the people, although many of them have become famous in other ways. Mr Hubbard, the able editor of the Logan Gazette which has until recently been a Whig paper, says that there ere at least five hundred Old Line Whigs in Logan county who will vote for Mr. Buchanan. The Sumter (S. S.) Watchman says :?44 Let Preston S Brooks be our next Governor with out a dissenting voice ?not as a reward, bat as a testimonial of our high appreciation of pat riotism, firmness, dignity and statesmausnip Henry Ward Beecber's paper is very mum in regard to tho report that the mulilto girl, who was purchased one fine Sunday morning in Plymouth churca, sold her purchasers while they were buying her! The story is. she ran away after getting all she could out of her dupes. We notice that fire men have been tried and convicted of disturbir g a political meet* ing and fined in sums varying from 910 to S6. The Cincinnati Times says : ?? The pun isbment meted out is just All men have a right to assemble for political discussions, and an interference with a quiet pojitical gather ing can be justified under no circumstanoes " The Boston Courier has the following cut at the New England clergy : "One of oar friends was coming from New York in the oars the other uight, and was amused at an interview between two persons, who seemed not to have met for some time before. 4 Well,' said one, alter the first salutations, 4 what are you up to now?' 'Oh, I don t know,' replied tho other, 4I think I shall take to religion.' 4 Re ligion !' cried his friend, 4 what do you mean ?' 'Why,' said the other, 41 think it's going to be a good business; the ministers are all leav ing it, and I tell you what, I believe there's to be an opening there !'
