An Axusino Plat rros tbb Names or MllMRERS or THE iJoCSB or RePBBIBNTA vivaa.?Our friend Oobright, Congressional reporter, gets off a good thing, occasionally, as will be seen by the following jeud'esprit from his pen, which we fished up yesterday "float ing around loose" in manuscript, among our brethren of the press in the House hall: Kefeshing Wood, Grsenwooi, Underwood, Are prominent In the long range; Therefore, that Branch and Soppare found In this connection?nothing strange ! Here may the bird In safety Psck, And Savage roam as he may like, Or take a Knapp In shady dell, None to dispute his sovereign Wright' All Ready for the grand display, For which we owe the people thanks, In Lojci and Rivers swim the Pike We stand upon the sloping Banks Let's have Child's play, my friends Here 1* a Broom , quick, sweep the Hall, And ring the Bell?for merriment We'll have a stirring game at Ball.' Ah ! this Is Bliss. I love the Knox, They're pleasant In this Valo below, Th?y nerve the limbs with manly strength ; We jar.ay like medern Samsons drove ! But let us now approach the Goods Things which the Congress have in store, We'll cook them Dunn with Mart and Sags; Of Porter, Firry, drink the Moore : "Oh! Hey and Knight, 'tis wondrous strange,'' What wild confusion have we here ; Albright, here shines the sterling Orr, And here doth likewise Rust appear! A Ktnc stands out in bold relief? A Packer in the industrial throng ; A Barbour, Spinner, several Smiths, And Whseltr, too, to help along ! Tiiough sport doth move the multitude, A peaceful Havsn may be theirs, If they but list and profit by The Dean and by the Bishop's prayers ' National Thbatre ? English Opera.? Don Pasqualo drew an excellent house; and it was a-uy to see that its performance took the audience completely by surprise. First, it was new to most present; in the next place the music wag just of a character to be com prehended by a popular audience; and, final ly, the opera was acted, as well a* 3ung with remarkable spirit. Miss Luuisa Pyne displayed comic capabili ties heretofore undeveloped?another surprise ?and as with her becoming widow's cap and prudish half-mourning dress, her veil, and her timid air of bashfulness and rusticity, she humbugged the susceptible Don Pasquale into signing a marriage settlement, and afterwards by a demonstration of first class vixenism, frightened him to a consent to her marriage with his nephew, the delight of the audi ence was exhibited unmistakeably. Mr Jlorncastle as Don Pasquale"gaTe us the highest idea of his capabilities we have yet received, both as vocalist and actor. Hia look ?I ludicrous discomfitment when, after his cuffioga from the fair hands of the Tartar of a widow, ho diaoovers that she has absolutely made an assignation in the garden with ?? somebody else on the very marriage night and when advancing to the foot-lighta he groans? " Oh, I shall lead a pretty life: A female Beel*?bub for a wife'' is a thing to be remembered. Mr Harrison was in exquisite voice last night, and made naturally a fine representa tive of the part of Ernesto. Mr. (iuilmette as Dr. M?latesta was gentlemanly and corrcct making the most of the part. To-nigat and we say it with regret, the lasl of the engagement?the favorite "Som nam.tuU ' is to be performed, an opera num bering we presume more admirers amongst a!l classes of the citiiens of Washington than any other that could be presented In addition, a fine concort will be given, the occasion beinir the benefit of Miss Pyne and Mr. Harrison. Errata. In our yesterday's notice of the opera the types make us say "eruditional qualities instead of " emotional qualities " " LrudUional" may, in the language of the elder Weller, be a "more tenderer word " but ?t is by no means the one we intended.' Cass Dismissed ?Yesterday, a boy about fifteen years of age. named Thomas Robinson was arrested for an attempt to rob the money drawer of Mclntire's drug store, on Seventh street. He was taken before Justice Donn, who examined the witnesses. It appears that when the drawer opens an alarm bell aoands The young man who attends the store, beine near by, heard the bell, and went into the store and saw the prisoner standing near the drawer; the drawer was not opened, but 'Ap parently an attempt had been made to open it, but failed because of a catch underneath No one saw the prisoner make the attempt nothing was missed ; and, in view of this tes timony, and the fact of the prisoner being the son of a widowed mother, the Justico lectured him severely on the danger of such conduct and dismissed the ca3e. Centre Mirket.?The supply was not very great in the principal market, and purchasers were namer jus. As u?aal at this season of the year, prices are becoming higher, as the de mand increases. The quality of the provisions offered is very excellent, and the dealers are kept busy by the rapid applications of pur chasers. The improvement of the south front of the iquare has been commenced, and the country dealers expect that in a short time they will be accommodated with more comfortable standa than at present Scgpicioi'8 Cibccjsstabess.?Last night a man named Thomas Soden was arrested by Officer Coope- for offering certain papers a't the Dexter House which were supposed to be forged. The papers purported to be written by J J. Jonos, and made him responsible for the boarding expenses of the bearer. Soden after hi* arrest, tried to conceal one of the papers, but was prevented by the vigilance of the officer He had before been a lodger in the Central guard-house, and being unable to give a satisfactory reason for his eonduct he was committed U> the workhouse for sixty days.

W e have rarely seen so little pork coming into our market by wagons at this season of the year. Doubtless the unusually mild tem peraturs of the weather thus far is the prin cipal cause. So far, but little if any of what might bo considered prime quality ha9 boen offered. We presume, however, that as the gloomy spell of weather is now over, the sup ply will be more plentiful The qualities now offering command? from ffl 25 to 86.50. One of the black fellows, Gates, shot by Jackson on Monday night, is, we learn, very badly injured. Jackson has been committed to jail by Justice Reaver. We have been requested to call the atten tion of the police to the disorderly conduct of a parcel of colored boys who are in the habit of gathering on Lingau street, near Second, on the >-ibbath day, for the purpose of play ing handy and other dangerous games.
