The Bjard then adjourned until Monday evening next at 7 o'clock. Almost a Homicide was enacted last even ing in the chamoer of the City Hall occupied by the Board of C maun Council, and during toe session of the same Mr D. A. Watter pton, a member of the Council from the Fifth W *rd, had offere d a petition on the subject of abating a nuisance in an alley in bis Ward, which Mr John Id Peters, a member of the preceding Couneil, then within the bar, char acterized aloud as containing falsehoods Mr. Waiterston turned upon him and seised him by the two cheeks, scratching them consider' ably This brought other members around the parties and caused their separation But Mr Watterston said that the two could not occupy the same room, and he would retire. | In so doing he was followed by Peters, who, it is aaid, when outside of the chamber at tempted something like an apology, but im mediately followed it by a blow with the fist. Thereupon Mr Watterston drew a sword cane and Lursaed Peter', who retreated with great rapidity into the chamber. When just within the gate at the bar Watterston made a lunge with his cane, and with such determined vim that every member of the Board represented Peters's life to have been in tbe most immi nent danger. The blade of tbe weapon ap pears to have touched Peters on the right side, and ben ling round his body so as to pro duce the illusion, happy as it fell out, that Watterston had completely run bis antagonist through. Peters was not armed- Captain Mills of the Auxiliary Guard, being in the chamber at the time, arrested the combatants, and took them beforo Justice Thompson, who was also casually in the building. On an in vestigation of tbe case tbe J ustice deemed it bis duty to bind both parties over to answer at the next term of tbe Criminal Court, and also mutually to keep the peace for the next six months. The Counoil took the matter up, and a committee ef three was appointed to examine ink) and report upou the matter ? Inttlhgtnrer. * I'jriAWPFL AasFM?i.AO?. ? On Saturday night, the members < f the Auxiliary Guard on duty in tat Fourth and 1 ifth Wards, made a desoent on a bou*e near the "Old Depot,'' and captured some five or six colored persons there assembled after hoars and for doubtful turp<*es They were taken to the guard bouse, and in the morning were released on raying the fines and oosts. The guards in formed us that the house is kept by a white man, and has been suspected a long time as a rendecvous for colored persons of this eity and the adjoining States Cbstrb Miaaar.?The fruit dealers who have been so much disturbed at the Centre Market by persons robbing tbeir wagons sod stands, have come to the determination to en force the law against every one arrested here after. Last night, a young man was arrested on this charge and taken to the guard house; but he wa? dismissed by the complainant with a lecture from Captain Mills, which he will be likely to remomber.

We have heard during the last few days quite a multitude of inquiries from the oppo sition as to what our council* had done with the poll tax atd suffrage bill. We would in form all suoh inquirers that tley have dis posed of it in ju*t such manner as the Mayor directed, viz : referred it to Recorder Ould, whoro we will guarantee it receives all the consideration its merits may entitle it to. Wc presume, however, that if the Recorder should propose an ordinance for carrying out the pro visions of the bill, that it will be labor for nothing; a*? the very party whose petition was instrumental in securing its onactmcnt by Congress, must necessarily, if they would mako anything like the slightest show of consistency, vote against its ever going into effect, if it should bo again submitted to the pooplo, for it is a fact known to every man in our commu nity, that when our councils, only two years ago, prepared a revised ehartcr for our citv embracing identically this provision, and sub mitted it to the people for their decision, that the very party which now appears so arxious for it, almost to a man came to the polls and voted egaicst it. And that too, if we are cor rectly informed, after they had solemnly re solved to do so in their secret council meetings. The garden farmers in attendance at our market this morning arc rejoicing over the fino shower3 of last night Nothing could have been more opportune; and from present indications we are destined to be blessed with a considerable quantity moro before it stops. We loam from some persons that the drought in some sections southwest arid west of us (con tiguous to tho District) has been almost un precedented Many stroams, which have never been known to fail, were recoutly on tiroly dry Many farmers also found much difficulty in carrying on their seeding opera tions in consequence of it. A fracas occurred on Market street, near I Bridge, on Sunday night about twelve o'clock, between a party of young men, who had doubtless been dealing too freely in something stronger than water, which resulted in one of the p irty, a young man from Baltimore, by the name of Douglass being considerably cut by a knife in the hand" of another individual I named Thornbury. Youn^ Thornbury is rep resented as a very peaceablo young man ; and it is aaid that he used tho knife after his as sailant had thrown or knocked him down and was on top of him. Thornbury was held to bail by Justice Reaver, in the sum of $266, for his appearance at court. Keep better h .>urs. youug men, and you will avoid all such scrapes.
