Tri Firi Companies ?In a recent commu nication of the Mayor of Washington to the City Councils, he invites their attention to the statement of the Board of Trustees of the Public Schoolf in relation to the sehool-room in the Northern Liberties engine house?it appearing that " the room is used as a sleep ing place for persons who do not wake up early enough to let the school in at the proper hour," and that " the room in the second story was appropriated for the school by the late Mayor, and the room in the third story desig nated as the meeting hall of the fire company, and that this arrangement was at tho time satisfactory to all parties, but that since then, indeed, during tho holidays, the fire oompany has removed the furniture of tho school and taken possession of tho school room, either forcibly or surreptitiously-'' The Mayor concludes with the following re marks : " The habit of meeting nightly in the engine houses and of sleeping In them is full of de moralizing tendencies as well as a piolific source of false alarms of firo, and even of in cendiarism, and ought by all means to be broken up. Tho powors of the Mayor have been exerted to accomplish this object, but are too limited with the present police force to keep such order as w>U insure the preserva tion of the public peace and the maintenance of the supremacy of the laws. Jealousies have sprung up among some of the companies which lead to rioting and violence in almost every instance they are callcd out, and these difficulties *111 increase unless promptly sup pressed. It is, then, highly Dropcr, as well as necessary, that the responsibility be met at once by those whose duty it is to see that the laws are observed and that the public oeaco is maintained as well as good order estaolished and npheld. " Fire companies are established for tho nurpose of engendering a feeling cf security in tho public mind as well as for the purpose of preventing tho spread of fire, when it has, eitner by accident or design, been communi cated to buildings, and they ceaso to accom plish either object efficiently when, instead of emulating each other in a commendable zoal and promptness in repairing to the proper sccnes for their operations, they meet together for the purposo of trying who can throw most stones and show tho most utter recklessness of law and decency In other cities the powers of districting and closing have been given to tho Mayor, and its judicious u?e has proven beneficial If it should be tried and fail here it will then become our duty to look for other and more potent means of obtaining efficiency and harmony in our fire department. '? I have been thus earnest becausc I am induced to believe, from my own observation, that unless some change be mado in the pres ent system its demoralizing influences will re sult in more injury to the class of youth who hang around fire-erginea ?nd engine-houses than will be compensated by all tho good tho firo companies can ever do." The Excursion of the Light Infantry to Old Point, Portsmouth, Norfolk, Ac , offers a fine opportunity for thc-so of our citizens who desire a trip to the salt-water region. Tho party will leave Washington on Friday after noon, at 2 o'clock, in the steamer Powhatan, and reach Old Point by 8 o'clock on Saturday morning, thence to Portsmouth and Norfolk ; roturning, th?y will leave Portsmouth on Sunday morning for Old Point, and remain there until 12 o'clock m., departing at that hour for Washington, where they will arrive on Monday morning about fi o'clock,?thus giving excursionists time to be present at the gratd reception of the Infantry by tho mili tary of Portsmouth, to visit the Navy Yard, big ship Pennsylvania, Norfolk, tho Marino Hospital, Ac., Ac ; and a day-light view of the Chesapeake Bay, on the return trip. National Theatre ?The play of "Dreams of Delusion" wont off admirably last night. Miss Laura Kcene was as usual charmingly accurate in her delineation of the fine part of Lady Harleigh, and Mr George Jordan per formed the part of Sir Bernard Harlcigh in a manner evincing careful study Mr. Dickin son also acquitted himself handsomely as Dr. Pungent. The following piece, 44 Two Can Play ;>t that Game," went off with spirit, as did the con cluding one of 41 Novelty." To-night, 'L Tho Marble Heart" and "Novelty" will be pre sented Women in Men's Clothes ?A great buzz was created on Twelfth street to day by the appearance of two young women in men's clothes, who had been arrested on the street and were taken to Justice Clark's office. They said they were from Philadelphia, and gave their name? a. Charles L Moore and Charles Walters One of them concealed her fa?e while at the office, as if with some sense of <>hame ; but the other was quite talkative, and seemed rather to glory in her position. They woro committed to jail for further examination. Fatal Accident ?Thomas Connaught, a waiter, recently discharged from the National Hotel, where he had been employed during the late busy season, fell from an upper window of Shadd's boarding house on Tlnrd rtreet near the Avenue, about half-pas: two o'clock this morning, and died a few minutes after he was taken up.
