The Death or Yocso Throop ?The Balti more San of this morning says : " As wad an ticipated by the physicians in attendance upon Nathan H Throop, the young man from Wash ington city, who waa wounded in the late election riot*,. his injuries terminated fatally on yesterday morning about eight o'clook, he having shown signs of a speedy dissolution on Sunday afternoon, and continued to sink grad ually up to the time stated, when ho breathed his last without any apparent increase of pain. Coroner Chalmers was summoned and proceeded to bold an inquest over the remains, and there being no evidence direct as to the shooting, a post mortem examination waj mad* by Drs. Smith and Johnson. They found that the slug had struck the middle of the left 1 temple passing obliquely through the skull backwards and towards the other side, making j a breach through the substance of the part of , the left hemisphere of the brain, perforating the dura matis of the cerebrum and lodging under it, against the inner surface of the akull where it was found. This wound, in their opinion, caused his death- The jury thereupon rendered a verdist that his death was eaused by a ball from fire arms by some party to them unknown At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the remains were removed to the depot attended by his relatives and a number of friends, who left for Washington with them in the five o'clock train. His funeral will take place from the residence of his parents, No 500 Pennsylvania avenue. Washington, during today. Tnis makes the fifth victim of the disgraceful and inhuman riots of Wednesday last. The Visit or the National Guard to York Pa ?The National Guard, Capt. Jas. A Tait, of this city, hsving completed their arrangements, will start for York, Pa., on Saturday morning, the 15th inst., in the S o'clock train, arriving in Baltimore by 10 o'clock, in which place they will remain until 31 o clock p m. We understand they will be properly received and escorted by their bro ther soldiery in both places. We predict for them a delightful trip. The Homicide Charge ?Geo McNaughtoa was brought out for examination at the jail yesterday afternoon, before Justices Goddard end Donn. The testimony was substantially as was given before the Coroner's Jury, and the Justices decided that it was not sufficient to hold him for Court, and he was released. Messrs Ennis and Wharton appeared as bil counsel Sale or Real Estate ?The east half of square 555, containing upwards of three hun dred thousand square feet, was purchased on Saturdav by W.

Alarm ?The alarm of fire, last night, was ciused by a bonfire on Seventh street. [COMMUNICATED Mr. Editor I waa mucb delighted to see io your columns, a few days since, a commu nication in regard to the measures used in our markets. Your correspondent has touched upon the matter nearest the hearts of a large m-joriiy of the citizens of Washington, it is a notorious fact that the measures in our mar kets are continually growing " beautifully lees." I presume there is not one person in ten (excepting those interested in small meas ure^ but would be much gratified to have a law passed by the corporation, bringing into use scales lor the purpose of weighing suck articles as potatoes, apples, peaches, and ia fact everything that is not at present sold by the dosen or io this manner I sincerely hop* and trast that oar good Mayor. :>r some patri otic Councilman, will take the matter in charge. Ootofcer 13,1868. A Family Mam. I Tab Daatk or Yodka XafcOOP ?The Balti more Clipper of this morning almost goes into black over tbe death of Young Throop of this eity killed in the recent Baltimore eleotion riots, characterising him as a "young and promising American " and abusing onr for eign-born citizens in its well known way, of couree, in the same connection. The citizens of this city, many of whom knew the lawless and otherwise disreputable character of this young man well, will be sur prised to see the Clipper's statements Now, we have to say that the deceased was well known to the polioe of Waahington as one of tbe most desperate of a gang of young rowdies, thieves, and desperadoes, and had himself not unfrequently been in the hands of officers of justice under charges of stealing, rowing, Ac. On the day before tbe Baltimore election, be applied to a respectable citisen of Washington, who bad beon in the habit of hiring to him a gun for hunting, for a revolver, boasting th*t his purpose was to shoot a for eigner, and saying that he was going to Balti more lie was refused. He then applied to another citisen for one, who also refused to let him bare it on being cautioned by tbe per son who bad first refused him. Previous to being shot he was seen to fire two shots at the Democrats from behind a grating near the base of the Washington Mon ument. This we learned yesterday from one of the first citisens of Baltimore There is not a shadow of doubt of the truth of that fact, which will be proved beyond all question when the circumstances of the fight at the Baltimore election shall be investigated We repeat this city held no more disrepu table, mischievous and dangerous youth of his age than this "young and promising Ameri can" of the Clipper, who was pretty much such another as Washington Nailor, Ray, Croggin, Bailey A Co. In view of these facts, our fellow-citiiens, hundreds of whom are personally aware of their truih, will comprehend that this mis guided young man, who had been a nuisance and a terror here for years, has simply met the fate that is apt to overtake such evildoers. Bad Pavements ?Mr. Editor: Allow me through tho columns of your widely circulated and universally read paper, to call the atten tion of the proper authorities to the wretched condition of the footway on each side of Thir teenth, between ? and V streets. There are but few streets in the city of Washington more handsomely built up than it, and there cer tainly is not one where the pavements are so bad. The footways alluded to are rugged and worn out, and on the east side of the street in some places there is none at all. A Young Obntlkman of this city, called at an oyster stand a day or two since, and order ed a " dozen in the shell." The order waa attended to in a moment, and when he at tempted to swallow the first oyster, he felt some hard substance in his mouth, which he took out and placed on the stand beside him After the whole were disposed of, he examined the hard substance, which he supposed to be a pebble, and discovered that it was a large and valuable pearl. Various jawelers esti mate its value at from ten to forty dollars ' Syracuse paper.

No conclusive evidence was elicited One officer testified that he believed that John English, of Baltimore, waa the one that fired the pistol, but the slug taken froui the body of the deceased was entirely too large for the pistol found on English, disprov ing that charge. On the conclusion of the evidence a motion to discharge a portion of the prisoners on bail was argued, but District Attorney Reed contended shat they should be remanded for trial on the charge of murder and riot. The whole party?thirty three in number?were then commuted to jail. This decision has created much angry feeling am< ng the friends of the prisoners.
