The whole amount of ground owned by the proprietors Is ninety acre*, of which thirty acre* are now under improve ment. At tbe entrance stands a beautiful Grecian Lod^e. erected at a cost of >5,(XX), through which the visitor passes on entering the grounds; its front is appropriately embellished with figures representing Pepitence. Love. Faith and Time A high fence surrounds the entire grounds, which lay in natural undulations, admirably adapted to the purpose for which they have been set apart Within, the grounds are beautifully and inge niously laid out with winding walks of suitable width, and finely via veiled, to an extent of four miles These walks are lined with evergreen cedar, while a natural growth of oak and chest nut overhangs, giving a sweet and rural quiet to the whole scene. A mausoleum ha* been built of granite, with a tasteful marble front, at a cost of 110,000, and of sufficient site to contain one hun dred coffins On the thirty acres now in use some $60.0110 have been expended. The number of lots laid out is 2^4. which, av eraging at earh. which is a fair estimate of the large and small lots, would give room for inter ments to the amount of S20.C02. The manner of laying off the lot* Is a good one. and should Ik* adopted in all our public cemeteries A ?paco of two feet is left lietween all the lots for walks, as in the case in Greenwood Cemetery, in New York, upon the plan of which Glen wood Cemetery is laid out. In addition to the capabilities of the grounds above mentioned the "strangers' I.ot," for whirh pur pose a large spare is reserved, is capable of receiving interment* to the amount of UUI more The Lodge at the entiancecost the company the sum of ?5.0H>. The Cemetery has been open since August, 1354, during whirh time upwaids of4U>dead ltod ies have been deposited within its enclosure*. The distance of this rural Cemetery from the business portion of the city?one mile and a half? secures for it that serene quietude, wanting which any burial ground, however beautiful, has a pain ful air of unfitness. Tit* Disinterred Infant.?Yesterday after noon, Coroner Woodward summoned a jury to inquire Into tlie cause of the death of the child whose disinterment was mentioned in yesterday's Star. Various witnesses were examined, but nothing was proved upon the unhappy mother but ex treme poverty, which had compelled her to deny her babe the usual rites of sepulture. The mother was examined by the jury, and her appearance and touching story made a deep impression. She was emaciated; had evidently been sufiering from sickness; was very poorly c lad, and had in her hand a little bundle.containing bread enough for a small child's breakfast, lier name Is Catharine Kehan. Her husband is a poor laboring man. The child was taken sick suddenly, and was very hoarse, and the mother was advised to get some cough syrup, which she did. and adminis tered it the child on going to bed. When she awoke she attempted to suckle her bal>e and found it cold ; it was dead. She waked up her husband and told him, and he said they were too poor to have it buried as it should be, and proposed to take the child before the people began to ctowd in upon them, and bury it. and not having money to purchase a cof 11 n. they broke up an old cradlc and buried the child in that outside St. Matthew's burial ground. The child was near three weeks old. To the question of the Coroner?"Whydid'nt you apply to the Corporation to bury the child she replied "We wanted to hide our poverty as long as we could." The jury immediately made tip a small sum of money for her present help, and dismissed her. They then made up a ve:dict in accoidance with the facts. Centre Market, this pleasant morning pre sented a lively, cheerful aspect, and the attend ance, as usual on Satiuday, was large.

She is a propeller of one and a half hor?e power, thirty five feet long and six feet Win, and draws but two feet water. The greateM curiosity afeuit her is the engine, built on an entirely new plan, most compart in its form, and working with the regu larity of clock work. The Sun says: " The whole affair was built fo: a gentleunn of Washington, we ar? told?a nephew of President Buchanan She left Philadelphia with Mr Gard ner, Jacob Shubert and another at 6 o'elork on Monday evening, coming through the canal, and rro>?ing the bay during the strong southeaster of W ednesday?the highest speed attained was*eveu miles an hour Much time was loot on the way from various causes. She burns wood and can carry but a small amount of fuel, consequently has U> find a harbor frequently in order to obtain fuel. She in called the " Atherton." She started yesterday afternoon on her trip to Washington '' Th* New Asylcm.?The joint committee of the Boards of Aldermen and Common Council, having under consideration the plan for a new asylum building, met last evening, and agreed to report the plan of Mr. Charles Haskins, arid rec ommend its adoption by the two Boards. The entire length, by this plan, will be over 130 feet, extending north'and south, with a cent re building and portico fronting west, and projecting 48 feet beyond the line of the wings. The building is to be entirely lire-proof,arched floors and Iron stair ways. and calculated to arcommodatc240 inmates. The estimated cost is about 835.000, and the beauty, compactness and means of ventilation of a building built upon this plan, will probably indure its immediate adoption by the Boards. Should it he adopted, we learn that the advert 'ce ments for proposals will be publiihed next week. Thk Hkcond Exhibition of the Sunday School connected with the First Baptist Church, Tenth street, passed o9 last evening, In a gratifying manner, to several hundreds of persons. Among the most prominent pieces were?a duet sung by Miss Porsons and Miss Marion Brown; a hymn, by Miss Mary and Miss Marion Brown, executed with much feeling; and the beautiful hymn entitled "The Sunday School Army," sang b'v Master Walter Clarke, a lad about live years of age.

Fire.?Between H and 9 o'clock this morning, a woodshed, owned by Mr. Cripps, In the rear of Green's row, on E, lietween Tenth and Eleventh streets, took tire from some ashes which had been deposited there, and was burned It caused con siderable alarm iu the viriuity, but the damage done was not great. The firemen were promptly on the spot, and rendered such service as was necessary. Incendiary Attempt.?About II o'clock last aight, an attempt was made to tire a row of frame houses on Twentieth street, bet ween M and N. It was discovered and prevented Ik-fore much damage was done. The houses belonged to Mr. R utherfoid. Under the spot where the tire was seen a mineral water bottle was found, which had contained turpentine or cainphine oil. CaRCsi's Sai.oon was just comfortably filled last night, and theenjoyiueutto the spectators was enhanced by the better opportunity to witness the v'racefol performances of tbechildren Where in the world does Mr. Carusi manage tft^llnd so many beautiful children as are seen at bis May Balls?
