Yesterday, Mrs Chatain was arrested by watchmen Norwood and Ward upon suspicion of stealing *l"u, the property of Harriet V. H.Me, who boarded in the same hou-e with accused.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE i Giokqetotvjj, Feb 7, 1857. I Our City Councils were in session la*t night, but transacted but little business of moment, j i\lr. English presented the r.ecountof ii. Hea ver; which was read and referred. The same gentleman reported from the com mittee ol ways and meanj a resolution in re lation to the Corcoran charity fond; which passed both Boards. A resolution in favor of Sara'l Smash passed both Boards also. Mr English, from the committe of waji and means, reported a resolution establishing the salary of the clerk of the commissioner? of the sinking fund Mr. Cropiey offered a resolution of instruc tion to the committee on market hou?e Both Boards then adjourned. Our city politicians (both parties) rxro all astir mustering their forces for the coming municipal election. It is generally conceded that the present incumbent of the Mayor's of fice, 11. Addison, Esq , will again be the can didate of the opposition or Know No'hing party, and we were informed this morning that R. R Crawford, E.?fj , was nominated by the Democrats and anti-Know Nothings as their standard bearer. Tbe contest will doubt* less be very warm one Neither will be like ly to leave anything undone that seems to further their cause. The beautiful warm weather of the last few days has pretty well cleared our streets of tho high banks of snow, and business is again be ginning to show signs of revival. Spectator .
