(nrU. INTELLIGENCE. Mo*? Akotrr the National MonnKft ,f germs that daring the remarkable mating o lbe Board on Thursday. Mayor Magruder moved that the resolution of Gen McCldla abolishing the salary of the Superintendent be ^ffrJTf'?nSf . mamittce Instructed to inquire into the "J tbe Assoc iation generally, financial and otherwise, nd report on the next meeting of the Boa.d. Mr Bradley stating that he had already pre. "?h a rcoialToo. Myor Mwrmle. ,l:ew his. as he said he did not wish to be ap pointed on the committee. Mayor Marjnidcr then called for the reading, l.v the Secretary, of the last clause of the report made by the committee on finance al the meeting held early in February last; which clause inade it appear that the committee had examined the books and accounts of the Secretary and found them all correct, but had been unable to obtain a statement from the Treasurer of the moneys re ceived and disburse*! by him; on the contrary, ? he committee hoped to obtain such a statement bv the time of the annual meeting of the Society on the :KM of February last. Mayor Magruder then asked whether that com mittee had succeeded in obtaining the statemen . hut was informed that they had not. He next ln nuired whether the statement required by the constitution to 1* made to the Society bv the Board of Managers on the *2Al February last hart Wen made? An exceedingly politn fh<. returned that there had been no . 23d of February A third ^2h?0/n0t The by the persevering Mayor, wheith . statement alluded to had which KjStfS, no rrport'of ,h. TOSSPM?*- .b. Treasurer, who anxiously d&larcd that he was not aware of any irh constitutional provision I11 reply, the Mayor remarked that bethought it was high time, tben, that an investigation was made when so important an officer as the Trea surer'did not know the duties required at his li.tnds bv the constitution. Subsequently Mr. Bradley submitted his reso lution to appoint a committee to inquire into the pcrations "enrrallv of the society since they'd of February. 1=55, at which time the present Boa'd of managers was elected. Mr McCalla (the treasurer) objected to the adoption of the adoption of the resolution for the present lie stated. in substance, that it involved a very important question, upon which he was not not now quite ready to vote; and therefore moved that it be laid on the table until the next merlins? ; which was done. We undf^tand that Bradley, McCalla. and Crais acknowledged during the discussion Kilt they"had nothing to allege against the integ rity of tbe Secretary, and thai the only objection t.. be urged against him was his assumption of responsibility in paying out money without the authority of the Treasurer. The Secretary, in reply, showed that his course in this respect had been fully sustained by the Board .. , . We understand further that Mr Craig s wit ness, watchman Hilton, who was to prove such astonishing things against Mr. AtLee, was dis missed without even an examination, so much an affair of smoke did the whole thing turn out to be By the card of Mr AtLee. which weappend, i? will be seen that he doe* not rest on the defen sive. but ?' carries the war into Africa " To tk* Members of the Waskmgtom National Society : ladies and Gentlemen: The undersi-ned elected at a regular meeting of the Board of Man agers of the Washington National Monument So ciety. Secretary thereof, and to whom, at another regular meeting, was awarded an annual com pfnsation. ha* vcMerdiy, at a special meetinjj of 1 he Boani. been deprivfd of his entire salary ac cruing from and after the 1st day of the ensuing May On motion of the same individual, the rse? retary can no longer receive money contribu ted towards the erection of the Monument, but the Treasurer has been, on his own motion, con stituted the unchecked custodian of the finances. The purpose of these proceedings was. no doubt, intended to force me into resignation. Had I consulted, exclusively, my own feelings. 1 should long ago have withdrawn from a position which has always been a source of vexation and chagrin. But I considered invself one of the guardians of a s.*red trust. 1 did not seek the office. 1 was nominated without my knowledge, and was elected without a breath of solicitation. I entered upon the discharge of my official duties with an express disavowal of all partisan obligations, and solely with a desire to promote the consummation of the patriotic enterprise for which you have so "enerously contributed. ~ 1 found the affairs of the Secretary's offiee in the mrwt lamentable confnsion. and 1 devoted myself with assiduity to restoring them to order. For a time the Board appeared to sympathize with my views and encouraged inv endeavors, but there -soon succeeded a series "of emlarrassments bv which my efforts have lieen continually thwarted. A crisis now exists in the affairs of the Monu ment Society which ought to be met with prompt energy. The constitution authorizes the President of the l nlted States who is. tx officio, the chief officer, to call a general meeting of the Society whenever he may see fit to do so; and immediate applica tion ought to be made to Mr. Buchanan to avail himself of this authority. Without intending to*assail the personal repu tation of any memberof the Board I cannot refrain froin asserting that the carelessness with which their management of your interests has been con ducted. ought in one instance at least?not in re lation to myself?to suggest reflections involving deep self-reproach. I regret the necessity for saying this; but, if the members of the Society wilF procure me a fair opportunity for doing so. 1 will lay before them the reasous which have induced me to pro mulgate this opinion. a committee of intelligent and impartial men. outside of the Board of Management. l>e ap pointed. with instructions to receive testimony in ?u? h a manner as shall be open to the public eye, and I shall be perfectly willing toabiae the is/ue of their investigation On my part. I invite the iimmI scrutinizing review of my official conduct. 1 shall not resign, to gratify the Board. It will afford me pleasure, however, should a general meeting of tne Society at large lie called. ,tltd a thorough exposition made, to surrender inv aflairs into thetr hands; and I take the liberty of advising the B<?xd to go with ine, thus, ?? to the country.'' Very respectfully, your obedient servant. Samcel Yorke AtLee Washington City, April ;M, 1*\?7. The Tempeha.nce Cause seems to be revivin j in our city at the present time, vigorous ettorts to that end having been made recently by tbe Order of Rechabites and other temperance organiza tions Kagle Tent.

Rr?l KstatkSali.?Mc'iuiro sold yesterday at auction, Hogan's place, near lhe toll i#*le to j. U. Ward, Esq , for W Secret Doctst*xT?.?1The following extract from a secret circular issued by the usurping management of the Monument Society, and ob- | tained by as no matter bow or at what expense, sives a T,'ch an<* instructive development as to '?culvert movements about that time. The allu sion to the Pope's stone is suggestive. It is but fair to add that the italics are ours. The cirrular is accompanied by another from 4i Charles C. Tucker. Secretary W. N. M. S." in which he says: *' By the action of yonr brethren in the District of Columbia, our Order stands pledged to the country and the world to complete tne Monu ment, and the glory of success, or the disgrace of failure, will be ours alone." Brethren of the American Party: For twenty years past a voluntary association has existed in this city, formed for the puipose of raising funds to erect a monument to W ashusgtos. It was founded on the scheme of voluntary contribution^ among the people of the United States, in such sums as would enable every citizen to contribute towards it. After years of patient waiting, a suf ficient amount was accumulated to justify them in adopting a plan and beginning the work* A plan was adopted of .1 single shaft of white mar ble of four equal sides, having a base 55 feet ITS*,t0 Jh?,,hei?ht of ",x hundred f* ?* ^?1n'"h,nR gradually from base to top, and to be fflI feet square at the (op The base is to be a, ^ i f??\ "nrrourMl?l by columns and orna m> nted by statues. The interior of the Monu chaml*[i the walls, fifteen feet Ik! I. f""* "1 Of the-solid blue stone of the I otomac in large masses; faced on theont ?rmiW?'h white marble eighteen Inches thick, firmly bonded at every course into the blue stone I be corner stone was laid on the 4th of July I84g' The structure has reached the height of one hun ,-1 j "er9mtT ?t ? cost of upward of 230,. dollars And it appears to be firm as the ma terials of which it is composed. Last year the contributions were wholly insuf ficient to keep up the ordinary progress of the work, and the managers were constrained to ap ply to Congress for aid. In the course of its con struction they had thought it expedient and pro per to receive not only contributions in money from every quarter of the globe, but they invited contributions in ornamented stones, to be placed, under the direction of the architect, in the face of the wall of the chamber. Among others, a stone was sent from the Pope of Rome, and teas receiv ed by the managers, to be plactd, as the others, in some conspicuous place. It was an American monument, and its con struction and management was said to be mainly in the hand? of Catholics and Foreigners Coin plaints were also made of the administration of the association, aud of the expenditures and losses in the collections of funds. For these and divers other causes, the Americans of this District re solved in their respective Councils, that this work ought to be. typical of their government, com pleted by the free act of the People, under the di rection and by the handsof the natives. Accord I inglv, at the election held on the 22d of Febru ary fa^t, they nominated and elected a ticket of their own Order, who now have the control of the work. It will require at least one million of dollars to complete it as it was originally designed, and that sum must be raised by the Councils of our Order, or we must suffer indellible disgrace, and b-come a by-word. There are enrolled in the Order, at this time, not less than two millions of fieemen A contribution of fifty cents from eacb, a sum within the reach of every member, will ef fect it There may be some too poor?there can not be any too mean or too insensible to the obli gation upon them?to give this sum. If this shall be so. we have adopted a plan by which that difficulty may be met. For every contribu tion of one dollar, a certificate of membership is to be issued to the person in whose name the sub scription is made. It is therefore proposed that collections shall be made in each Council through - out the nation, in such manner as each may deem most expedient, and the money remitted to John M. McCalla, Esq., Treasurer of the National ( .Monument, accompanied by a letter addressed to I Chas. C. Tucker. Secretary of the National Mon ument, stating the amount thus forwaided. and j transmitting a list of the names to whom a certif ! icate for each dollar, thus paid in, is to be sent. For each single subscription of five dollars a handsome engraved plate of the monument, of large size, will be sent. But, brethren, while the sum of fifty cents from each member of the Order may be barely suffi I cient to complete the structure, it will take as much more to finish the work and the grounds, and leave a surplus to be invested, and yield an , interest to keep it in repair and defray the inci dental annual expenses. We have pledged the American party to this work. .We have taken the great step of over , throwing, on this ?pledge, the administration which has preceded us, and which not only failed, but went as l*-ggars to Congress to ask j legislative aid for that which loses all merit un i less it be the free-will offering of grateful hearts. I Have we done right? [The response seems to have been " No."J Thk Circuit Cocet.?The ejectment case of Weightman & Webb vs. Frederick Ringgold, that was taken up in this court day before yester day. was yesterday continued until the October term. The ejectment case of William H. Winter rs. Mary A Anderson was then tried, and decided in favor of the plnintiff?damages merely nominal. Carlisle and Maury for plaintiff; Devlin for de fence. The next case was that of John and Mary Ma honey r*. Charles H Van Patten, for wages of said Mary before marriage. Verdict for plaintiff* #113. and interest from June 1, 1S51. Stone for plaintiff; Giberson for defence. The points of demur made in the case of Jones r?. Dermott. are held under advisement by the Court until next Monday week, when they will deliver their opinion on those points. This morning, Caustin Browne, Esq., of Massa chusetts.^ was introduced to the Court by A. Smith. Esq.. and admitted to the bar to practice at the regular Courts of the District of Columbia. Judgments were obtained in several inquisi tions against Messrs. Hayward & Wilson. The Court then took up the case of B I Reed vs. Win. I. Smith, (491) on docket.) in which the plaintiff brings action for damages on grounds of trespass. Stone for plaintiff. Correction.?We were in error, yesterday, in stating that the plaintiff relied on a tax sale of the Cornoration, ana under a deed to Allison Nailor by the Corporation. Whereas it should have read that the defendant claimed under the taxsaleand deed by the Corporation in favor of Allison Nailor. Whereupon her counsel asked leave to amend his declaration, which was granted on payment of the costs of the term, and the jury was discharged. At Cestee Market, this morning, the prices were pretty much as usual.

Bible Societt.?The regular monthly meet ings of the Board of Manager* of the Bible Soci ety was held on Wednesday in the Central Acad emy, comer of E and 10th street. Among other proceedings, reports were pre sented from the exploring and distributing agent of the society for the 4th, 5th, and 7th wards of the city, which he had completed. Froiu these reports i' appears that he has visit ed in the wards named 4,020 families, found 218 destitute of the Bible, supplied 55 by sale, !M by donations, and that 69 destitute refused to receive; entire number of Bibles and Testaments fold 277, number distributed gratuitously 94. Seventy children, of suitable age, were found not attending any Habbath School, of whom forty were induced to commence attendance. The agent reports a cordial reception every where. and in a number of ca*es much gratitude and thankfulness expressed on the part of recipU ents, and considerable liiierality on the part of citizens in contributing funds to carry forward this work throughout the entire city and district. A committee, consisting of Rev. J. G. Butler, Rev G D. Cummins, and Rev. P. D. Gurley, D. D., was appointed, to make arrangements for the anniversary of the Society on the last Monday of May. lii the interim, it is understood that the citi zens, especially former contributors, will be called upon by the agent, Mr. Win. J. Redstrake, who carries with him evidence of his commis sion, or by officer* of the Society, who are knofem as such, for aid in this important work. In view of the foregoing facts, the Society re spectfully asks that the usual or even extended liberality be manifested by citizens in their con tributions. ??? The Cosceet To-Niobt.?Madame D'Angri left a most favorable impression In this city on each of her visits, and every lover of music will be glad to renew the acquaintance. She has fair claims to rank with Alboni as a contralto, and not a few judicious critics give D'Angri the prefer ence. She is to be supported to.nigbt by other peiforiue.s of excellence.
