ATTrRSrr, ) January 19,1867 J Br. \a Sir . I return herewith the act levying a tax on stalls In tfce Northern Market for tfce n?e g" I am of opinion that the charter does not ?.u tborlie such tax I entertain no doubt that the ?treeta mav be lighted by pas, and a special tex imposed for that purpose, all In th* same way as In respect of the old-fashioned lamp post*, though I understand objection ba? been mad* to ?"?h taxee But the d' ??uity Is that the power la con lined to the streets. While, however, I deny tfce power to lav a sp-clal tax upon stalls already rent?d, or to add any new charge except upon content cf th?? re spective part ea I have no rfoubt of the power to introduce gas Into the market house, and to re quire those who chocse to use It to pay for It, leaving the others to their tallow cand'es until the present letting* run out, when tbe diacultv ca i be obvl?ted before n< w '?ontracta are entered Into.

Permit me, Mr Kdi t(ir, through the attractive columns of the Star, to say a few words relative to the merits of the present accomplished manageress of I tbia establishment?Miss Fanny Morant?ana her excellent company. In order to form a good idea of her power as an actress. one should see her in that beautiful drama, bec ond Love." We were particularly with her rendition of the character or tlmor Mowbray ; a capital piece of acting, in which grace, dignity, earnestness and pathos were in an uncommon degree combined Much praise is due to the members of the company, who. without exception, act will their parts. Shall not Miss Morant be sustained by our citizens in her laudable effort* to establish for their entertainment the legitimate Drama in our metropolis? We really trust that the lady manageress may be well patronized and en couraged, and that the fact may become gen erally recognised that we have a Theatre among us. ??? ** Officeks Elected ?The following gentle men were electcd officers of the Washington United Fire Department at the regular meet ing held on the 25th inst : I're'ident?Thos Marcbe, of the Columbia.

The ver dict of the jury was, that decease 1 came to hie death by some cause unknown to them.
