Bills for the relief of Wealthy M Hanson, James Addison end William B Jaekson were passed; also a bill for the erection of ashed at the west end of the Western market. The police committee was discharged from the consideration of Council bill changing the line of the election precincts of the Third and Fourth Wards, and the bill was rejected. A bill was passed granting the use of a por tion of Centre Market space to Cornelius Shawn for equestrian purposes, from Decem ber 24, 1864, to March 5,1557, and permitting him to ereot a temporary wooden building thereon, providing he deposit $100 weekly in advance, and that the structure shall be re moved whenever the Mayor shall deem it a nuisance or in the way ef the market. Mr Basey, from police oommittoe, reported Council bill regulating markets, with amend ments; one of which proposed to raise the price for license of butchers in the Centre market from forty to sixty dollais, and making the license of butchers in the other markets uniform at twenty-five dollars; the amend ments of the committee were adopted. Mr Evans moved an amendment giving the Commissioners of the Northern Market a sala ry of $100 He went on to explain what im provements had been brought about at this market, mainly through the labors of these Commissioners, and the increased revenue thereby accruing to the city treasury. The revenue of that market was increased from $1,500 to S3.150 Mr Bu*ey denied the correctness of the fig- i ures The present revenue he learned was only SI,100 and the increase was only pros pective in cade the stalls should be all rented and the licenses increased, when it was ex pected that the revenue would amount to $2,600 lie thought if the salaries were al lowed the Commissioners of markets it would be requisite to givo salaries to Trustees of Public Schools and members of the Board of Health. The amendment was further debated and rejected Mr. Houston moved to strike out $60 and in sert $40 as the license te be paid by butchers in the Centre Market. He thought this enough to pay for the wretched accommodations af forded. The amendment was adopted: after which the bill was perfected ?nd passed Bills for the relief of Benjamin T. Beer-, Ann Smoot and Phillip Kraffi were passed; also a bill authorising Nicholas Acker and others to u?e a portion of the pavement of North Capitol street. Joint resolution authorising the Mayor to test the utility of the iron pump manufactured by Foster Henshaw was adopted. Tho appropriation bill was received from the lower Board. Mr. Ruff moved to strike out the appropri ations for compensation to the commissioners of the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Six*h Wards, and the Intendant and Physician of the Asylum. The amendment was lost?ayes 6, noes 7. The appropriation bill wad then parsed ? ayes S, noes 5. Council bill, providing for th? improvement of Eleventh street west, across 51 street north, passed. Mr. Evans introduced a bill appropriating $500 for the purpose of ceilirg the Northern Market- passed. The B.<ard then adjourned. 5t John 3 Association fob thb Relief or tbb Poor ?This Association held its ninth annual meeting on the 5th day of the present mouth. (November,) when the managers re sumed their labors of love and mercy, which justly reflect so much credit upon both head and heart. They report that during the past year they have aided and relieved 110 fami lias, and distributed 178 garments. Their parish school contains 50 children, though, owing to sickness and the severity of tho wea ther, the attendance has not been so regular during the last year as usual They have a regular teacher, who instructs these poor little Iambs of the flock in the utsful and necessary branches of an English education. Thrice a a week they receive religious instruction, and on the Sabbath attend school at Saint Jwha'a church. The following report of the Treasurer (Joi Smith, Esq ) will show how the funds of the Society have been obtained and in what man ner expended during the year ending October 31, 1854 : Receipts?Alms at the Holy Communion, $632.61 ; weekly collect'ans, $641 50; sub scriptions and donations, $331 50 ; from the treasurer of the parish, by vote of the vestry, $200; total during the year, $1,805 61 ; bal ance from last year, ,$106.35; total assets, SI,911.97.

Tbb Plblic Schools in Washington Cocntv.?At a meeting in W ashington county, at Hopston, November 24th, Ada Whitney was appointed Chairman, and J. C. Lewis Seore tary. s Alter a very full examination of the pro posed School Law, it was unanimously? Ke*olveU, That we consider the propoced School Law objectionable in several respects First It makes the amount of tax impera tive whether it be needed or not. Second. That it does not allow the inhabit ants of the districts the privilege of selecting the location of their own school-houses, or of electing their own officers That we therefore objeot to the proposed law, but will use our influence to procure a 1 iw more in accordauoe with the wants of the inhabitants of the oounty asking Congress to be as liberal towards us as to the inhabitants of the States and Territo ries. In view of the importance of common schools? Keto'vrd, That Joshua Pierce, Charles G. Page Henry Naylor, Chas. Fletcher of Kalo ratea. and Asa Whitney, be a eommittee to eali a general meeting of the inhabitants of the eounty, at such time and place aa they may deem proper, to take into consideration measures neeessary to establish a desirable school system tifsa That the proceedings of this meet ing be published iu the Washingtou city pa pers. Asa Whitmby, Chairman. J. C. Lewis, Secretary. Fob Ft rther Ubarii>?.?Watchmen Nor wood and Bird succeeded yes'erday in arrest ing Wm Johnson, John R >e and John Bark man. who are charged with being concerned in the robbery of the market stand on Monday morning. A lot of bacon was found in John sou's poeeesaion, and another lot obtained where they had sold it Johnson is about forty years of age Roe is well known to the police, and is about seventeen Barkman is apparently nineteen years of ago, and a new beginner They were all sent to jail for a fur ther hearing by Justice Honn. Cbhtbb Mabket?We noticed this morning that efforts are making to afford more coir* f< rtable positions fer persons who occupy stands in (he market. The r'?of is being re paired and new tin gutters placed upon it. The contractors for laying the payments and setting the curb on the south side of market space are now arrangiug their materials for the work, and the dealers are expecting that they will be eared for during the ioolemeney of the winter. The sapply this morning was very good in all the departments of the mar ket Rkmembsb the Bail of the ,Boone Club to night, at the Assembly Rooms. National Theatre ?The performuw. last night, went off in a blase of glory, ana the audienoe?which, bj the way, wu one of the largest we ever saw packed within the walli of a theatre?expressed the most extrav agant demonstrations of delight, now at the rich fan developed in one portion of the pieea, and now at the gorgeous scenio display be held at another In the latter respeet, we {resume, it surpasses anything ever before ex ibited in this eity, and as such is a splendid triumph for the artist, Mr Charles o. Gets. The " Amaions" are exceedingly pretty, but they need a little more drilling for perfection in their military evolutions, which wo have no doubt they will take to day, and that the {ieee will be rendered with even heightened rillianey of effect in all its departments to night. We mutt not fail to give credit to Mr J. ?. Phillips for the finely arranged dramatio tab leaux ; to Merars. Gardiner and Smith for tho well-managed mechanical effects; and to the exquisite music for the piece, performed un der the direction of Prof Jamison; and, above all, to Manager Ford for the splendid perform ance altogether. Fcn Spoiled. ? Information having been given to the Chief of Police that a large num ber of colored persons were preparing for a dance and drinking party in that portion of the Fourth Ward known as Goat Alley, tho ehief detailed a number of officers to attend and arrest all concerned in the unlawful as semblage Many colored persons were seen going in that direction in the morning; but the party did not assemble, probably because they learned that the officers were awaiting their arrival. Permits are sometimes granted to colored persons to hold parties when tbev are known as respectaVle citisens; but such as know that permission will not bo given them, endeavor to evade the law by giving parties in the day time. Up fob Profanity.? Last night, something of a disturbance was created at Schadd's res taurant on the Avenue, in consequence of a breete kicked up by two colored persons from New York whom the bar keeper had refused to supply with liquor. These wen, named Win and John Wedge?having used some profane and insulting language, an attempt was made to put them out, and a fracas en sued, which resulted in the arrest of the bar keeper, Jas Plats, and the two above named. They were taken before Justice Hollingshead by Officer Reynolds, and after a hearing of the evidence Plata was dismissed, and the two Wedges made to pay a fine and costs of $3 ly eacn for profanity. The Democratic Celebration oh Thi'Rr pat Night.?Very general preparations are being made by our citizens to participate in the procession and illumination of Thursday night, and all the indications point to a page ant of much more than ordinary effect It is of importance that the illumination should be general, and that concert of action should be observed as to the time of the display. Our country friends in Maryland and Vir ginia are. we hear, preparing to be present in force on Thursday night, and, should the day be a fine one, there will undoubtedly be a must effective display. Prevented ?Yesterday the police officers were notified that an attempt was to bo inude last night to rob the grocery store on Third street, near Trinity church, belonging to Mr Birth. The cfficers arranged to watch for the robbers during the night. The proprietor having also been notified kept a light burning in the store through the night, which proba bly gave the alarm to the depredators, as the night passed without any attempt at break ing in. Mrs Steele, the lady whose advertisement appears in another column, we are assured by disinterested judges, is nn artist of rare ex cellence, and one meriting the patronage of an enlightened public, who ever regard with favor the high manifestations of talent, enter prise and energy, which, to the honor of our country, have of late been so often developed in various departments of literature aud art by American women Ball op the Marion Rifles.?Dropping in at Temperance IIall, last night, we frund a very pleasant company gathered there and all enjoying themselves vastly. We were es peciaily pleased with the good order main tained?a feature not always observable at a military ball The Grand March, composed for the occasion by Prof. Esputa and dedi cated to Capt Shekell, was performed with brilliant effect. The New Railroad.?The regular travel over the Washington and Alexandria railroad commences to-day, as will be seen by an ad vertisement in anothor column of the Star. It will reduce the time required for the trip here tofore by omnibus more than one half, and as it offers many convenience?, will doubtless be extensively patronized, as it should be. Watch Retcrns ?Isab a Thornton, drunk; di?mifs<?d George T Gaines, colored, out after hours; fine and costs Win. Easton, Joseph Plant, James Plant, and George Dover, colored, disorderly ; security and costs. Prettt Tough?An exchange stys that " Daniel C Angner, of Woodbridge, Vermont, raised, last season, four bushels of California potatoes from a single po ato." Salt in Texas ?It is stated in the Texas papers that salt works have been established in that State, about fifty miles above Austin, on the west side of tho Colorado. The salt is said to be a superior article, and the best of fered in that market This is a fortunate dis covery, as all the salt for that region was wagoned from the coasts. English Idea of American Live ?A New Yorker who tired a revolver in the streets of London, was let off on a light fine on the ground that it was a common practice in tho United States, where nobody thought any thing of it The Lord Mayor said it was a very surprising state of society, but he was not prepared to dispute the fact.
