Ihe society had its origin with Frederick Loui* Jahn, a.- early as the spring of 1810. llis first Turn flat z (Gymnasium) was begun in that year at the Haienkaide, h large pub lic house near Berlin, Prussia. Dr Jabn was a man of profound learning, an ardent patriot, and his memory is dear to thousands and tens of thousands who have erjoyed the benefit of his arduous labors In 1H)9, the French were masters of Ger many. Jahn, who was a prominent and ac tive patriot, was for a long time employed in devising the best means for oreparing the Ger mans for a contest with their oppressors Hi* clastic mind hit upon the idea of restoring, in seme degree, tho ancient qymnana, as better adapted to congregate the young men of Ge; many where the more readily tneir patriotic impul-es might be developed and nurtured. In 1 10. he reduced his plans to pr? :ticc. Abuses having crept into the societies in a few years the Government ordered their sup pression. Taey were, however, again organ ized by the impetuou3 Jahn. and the revolu tion of 1>30 again aroused their liberal tend encies They Nvere denounced a3 a revolu tionary society, and again suppressed The first regular Turner Society was estab lished in New York in 18IS In the same year a society was organized in Cincinnati, and" one likewise in L misville Since that time it has expanded very rapidly, and its ramifications now embrace tho whole Union, from Maine to Texas. Militark?At the annual meeting of the Washington Light Infantry, held on Monday night, the following members were elected to fill vacancies occurring in the Company : Third lieutenant Jas. Kelly promoted to sec ond lieutenant; third sergeant Jus. Power to third lieutenant; quartermaster's sergeant Wm. Morcoe to ensign; corporal II. Warner to uuartermaster's sergeant; fourth sergeant B. F. Beers to third sergeant; corporal M P. Fisher to fourth sergeant; C. Nelson, Isaac Beers, corporals, and M. P. Fisher, ordnance officer. Civil officers? B. P Beers, secretary, and L D. Williams, treasurer. Ths National Thkatre ?The fine com pany which closed its engagement at the Na tional Ja.-t evening goes to Richmond, and its place is to be supplied by the celebrated Laura Keene troupe, which makes its first appear ance on M mday night in the exciting scenic French drama of '? Camille," and concludes with the great extravaganza of "Noveltv," in which the troupe were so successful in New York city, the piece having had a run of fifty consecutive nights. Rowdyism.?Last night several young men who were, or pretended to be, intoxicated, parsed up the Avenue insulting ladies and conducting themselves generally in a most dis graceful manner. Unfortunately, the Auxil iary Guards were at the time on another part of their beat, aud the rowdy scamps escaped arrest. They wore well-dressed, sported gold ehains and mustaches, and doubtless claim to belong to " first families." Ili.-Treatisg a Wirr.?The bearing of Jas. iiagan for ill-treating his wife, aroused the indignation of all who were present at the central guard house this inornii-g Fr< m the evidence it appears that this brutal husband beat his wife so severely while she was near her confinement that miscarriage followed, and the unfortunate woman gave birth to three dead children llagan was sent to jail; and tD"0 say we. ?

Call and see. A* Bxnxinra Wood and Coal Establish ***T.--Our evewas caught yesterday by the sign displayed at one of the carriage entrances to . the coa establishment of Messrs. T. J. A W. M Oalt, corner of Twelfth street and C street, announcing that the coal on ?i?le there was housed completely from the weather, and thus supolied to customers in the best possi ble condition. Thia struck us as a new feature in the coal business in thia city, and on enter ing to make inquiries we were surprised at the extent and completeness of the enterprise car ried out by the Messrs. Gait. . These gentlemen hare erected on tho wett side of Twelfth street, at the corner of C street, a building for the storage of coal, one hundred feet by forty, at the carriage entrance of which is a Fairbank's scalo, by wnich in bad weather the weighing of coal is performed under cover. On the opposite fide of Twelfth street, between C and D, they have a yet larger store-house, one hundred and fifty feet by forty, and which like the one on the east side of the stroet, is partitioned conveniently for the separation of different varieties of coal; red-ash whito-ash, Lehigh, Ac. The two buildings are sufficiently capacious to store 3,000 tons of coal entirely under covor J The other department* of this establishment consist of a large wood yard at the corner of I !*.enA 5 *nu C?treet? J ^ ? coal and wood depot 100 feet by 60 on the canal wharf, and Uf ivi l? wharf on the river at the foot , ? , enth street, known a3 " Lennox's wharf, and which the Messrs. Gait havo leased for a term of year.-!. At this wharf they nave provided storage room for all descriptions oi merchandise, and teams to convey goods to any part of the oity We have no doubt our citizens will avail themselves largely of the facilities afforded here for storago and cartage in the transportation of any goods by tho way of the river. The Messrs Gait havo expended much money in the improvement* they have carried out, but they will undoubtedly havo an abundant re turn in the patronage of aU who wish to pur chase wood and coal at a low rate and in ex ccllent condition. Ladies especially, who may be in pursuit of coal, will find the dry floors of these con venient storehouses of vast convenience, en abling them to examine varieties and insko their selections dry shod, and entirely under cover in the worst weather. v th?

Am P " ^'LD Cat " I^ajik Operator ?Asa t lork, who was arrested at Manchester, N. ?1, for bavin? a large amount of 44 wild cat money in his possession, was examined on C0Inui,ttcd in default of bail in vVl i i ,u'tJr mar8hal Lowell testified that xork t jld him fiat the " Potomac river Bank," whence the bills (18,000 worth) purported to do issued, was a new bank recently started at Georgetown, D. C , and that be was out raising money , and that tho bank was not yet started, only tonda paid in. Sail he had put fcsoo into the concern, and ho wanted to get it back. He said that this would ruin it. Ho said the Dank was reported in the detector, and that tbe man who issued the detector would blow It ap without he received more inouey. He sm 11 fce was going to Concord to raieo money on these bills. From the evidence introduced it appears that York made no secrct of having t em with him. The prisoner's counsel con tended tnat if there was ni such bank as the 1 otomac River Bank, as the prosecution eon tanded, then there was no counterfeit.

That all lands, the claims to which should be finally rejected by the commissioners, or final ly decided to be invalid by the district or Supreme Court, and all lands the claims to which sLould 1 i j presented to the said commissioners, should be teem d, held, and considered as part of the puhlic doirain of the United States 6. "that all claims flnallv confirmed !>y the commissioners, or b" the District or Supreme Court, a patent should issue to the claimant, upon his presenting to the General Land Office an au thentic certificate of such confirmation, and a pl.it or survey of said land duly certified and an pr2v^.by the 8Urvpy?<" general of California. v. i j "fke of the claimant to such land should be contested by any other person, it would be lawful for such person to institute process, for determining such conflict of right, in the proper district court of the United States; such court navlng power In that case to restrain, bv lnjunc tion, the Issue of any patent to the party claimant until the right should have been a^termined by competent judicial authority. 8, Shat the A'-al decrees rendered by the said commissioners, or by the District or Supreme Court of the 1, nlted States, or any patent issued to a claimant in virtue of *ich dccrees, should be conclusive between tfce United States and siun c.almant only, and should not afl'ect the intere Is of third persons. ? rtaf, tnev.-ry case In which the commis sioners should render a final decision, It should be their duty to have two certified transcripts pre pared of their proceedings and decision, and of 'ho papers and evidence on which the same were founded; one of which transcripts to be filed with the Clerk of the proper district court, and the oth er to be transmitted to the Attorney General of t e I nited States, and the filing of such tran scripts with the cle.'k aforesaid, to operate ipso facto, as an appeal for the party against whom the decision should have been rendered. 10 That, If such decision should lie against the private claimant, it should be his duty to file notice with theclerk aforesaid, within- lx months thereafter, of his intention to prosecute the ap p? al; ard If the decision should he against the Unib d States, it should be the duty of the Attor ney General, within six months after receiving said transcript, to cause a notice to bo filed with the elerk atoie>aid, that the appeal would be prosecutcd by the United States : On failure of either party to file such notice with the clerk aiOK'vaid) the appeal to be rc^ard^d as dismissed. Such is an outline of the provisions of statute regarding the examination of private land claims In the State of California, in so far more espe cially, as concerns the clliclal duty of the Execu tive of the United States, The commissioners, providi d for that purpose, entered upon, and have now completed, the dis charge of their appropriate functions, havin;' heard and determined upwards of eight liundreu cases, presented by parties claimants of land un der Spanish or Merican grants in California; and transcripts in the several cases have, from time to time, as they were determined, been transmitted to the Attorney tJeneral. Of these transcripts, the first was received at this office on the 3d March. 1KV3. a few days be fore the present Incumbent of the office entered upon the discharge of its duties. In the whole course. of the first year, however, only twelve transcripts reached this office, and they'did not aflord adequate m>-ans of coming to a general de termination if the subject-matter. Thus, of ne cessity, there could be no delinite action in any of these cases during the first year During the ensuing yearala rge number of trail scripts arrived; but, on examination <f tb*m, it was found impossible, with due regard to the In terests f t the United States, to decide lu what caws to abstain from prosecuting r.p,eals to final Judgment, until s.iti*f.ictcry rules of decision should have been obtained by the trial of a num ber of leading casp* in the Supreme Cou*t. For this caiise, It became necessary to file noti ces of appeal in every case, r.ot with any purpose of subjecting the parties to the expense of a trial In the district court in'every en.se but only to sus pend the cases there, and thus avoid tte conse quence of otherwise losing the right of appeal, in cases, where, bv application of decisions of the Supreme Court, it should in the event be found thit a rehearing was requisite, in justice to the United States or to parties claiming under tte United States. Efforts were made to carry through the distrlcl court, and hring to the Supreme Court, as speedily as possible, some leading cases lor decision there Fcur cases reached the Supreme Court in Decem ber term, 1S53, but in season to take up only one of them, and that on a question of form not affect ing its merits In December term, la54, two oj these cases were heard ai d determined cn theii merits, so as to settle sonre general principles, bul not enough to nrake It safe or convenient, then tc proceed to re-examine cases in order to dismiss appeals in the district court At the present t< rm however, which commencrd in December, and w'll have been continued by adjournment tc the end of May next, it Is conceived that In the numerous cases which have n< w reached the Su Ereme Court, a sufficient body of decisions will ave been had to justify the final disposition, witLout further trial, of no inconsiderable portion of the eases still [ ending in the district courts el California, on appeal hy the United States. I propose, therefore, on the 1st of June next, to commence th" re-examination of the transcripts, with a view to the discontinuance of appeals, in all cares where justice requires it, and It can Ik? done without manifest prejudice to the United States The cases will be resumed in the order of the f eueral calendar of ^ commissioners, and wher ever no sufficient reason to the c ontrary appears, notice of the disc ontlnuance of the appeal will be transmitted at once to the clerk of the proper dis trict court. Where objections appear on the face of the re cord, or may be suggested by written notice, duly fi'ed In this ? ffice on or before the first day of Auguft next, such objections will be deemed suf ficient to prevent the discontinuance of appeal, when ihey appear to involve rights or interests of the United States, and not otherwise leaving third parties to pursue the remedy, which the statute provides for them, of petition before the proper district ccurt, and Injunction to restrain Issue of patents by the Commissioner of Public Lands I nm, respectfully, C.
