Wi/JiVrm W Tmker, sworn.?Was standing on the opposite side of the caoal, just below Nor nient s lumber yard: was attracted by a disturb ance at Mr. Gerhardt'*; turned and saw a crowd r?.* persons whQ appeared to be scampering. one from the other, in front of the lot; some little girls who were passing down Maryland avenue, going west, when they saw the fracas, ran ofl as ra^t as they could; in a moment afterward noticed two men approaching toward the canal, aloug the pavement; one of them was In his shirt-sleeves, and was a stout man with heavy whiskers; sup posed him to be Mr Gerhardt; he li ed a pistol in the direction of those persons on the side-walk with whom he was in conflict; immediately after he fired, the persons turned and commenced throwing stones. (Question by the Coroner?Did von. at the time the pistol was flred. see any one fail, or hear anv exclamation or complaint ?* An swer?Did not hear any one exclaim, nor see anv one fall; a number of stones were thrown toward the house by the parties, who continued throw ing until after the sccond pistol was flred; could wot tell who flred the second pistol; the rrport seemed to come from the same direction as the flrst one did; it appeared to come from some one outside the hou*e, my impression is that the par lies were going froin the house when the flrst pistol was flred; did not notice any female going toward the crowd. Arthur S Wt*t. sworn ?Do not knowanvthing about the bring of the pistols; heard pistol shots fired, but do not know whoflred them; was look ing that way, but conld not see the parties who flred. from the fact that the parties were between me and those who were In the conflict; the first that 1 saw was Mrs. Gerhardt forcibly ejected from the house; she was backing from the door; five or six men, whom 1 recognised as the party who had passed by my son's house some ten mill- 1 lite-* l>ef?rc. who were drunk and had attempted to have a difficulty with a man who was inintling a cow near he corner of First street, were crowd ing upon her as she l>arked toward the curb stone, when I saw the use of a stick in the hands of Mrs. Gethardt. opposed to two of the party, whom I recognised as being very much inebria ted: she struck at one or both of them, when he. o both of tnem, struck her on the top of the head with a ?tone; she screamed, of course, when Mr. ?ierha-dt came out of the house: whether he fl'ed or not. or had any fl'carms, 1 do not know; could recognise the parties in conflict as those who had passed my son's house some ten minutes previously; have seen the deceased; had seen Mr. Gerhardt several times before that day: did not know him nor the barkeeper personally; am a stranger in the city; the barkeeper seemed to be contending with two or three men; one of the men | had his hand in a sling, and have no doubt but that he was the mostTiolent one of the party: he was the most active one in throwing stones at the windows.

Dorotka Gerhardt, sworn?Heard a noise; came in the bar room, and saw Ave men coming in; sat down on a chair; three of the fellows drank and ran out the bar room door; iny husband asked them who would pay for the drinks; they said it was all right, it was all paid for; two of the men were in the bar room, dancing and jumping around; my husband said: "this is no dancing school," the two fellows called the other three fellows in again; the three came in and commenced to curse my husband, calling him a G?d d?d Dutch son of a b?b: jumped ofi' my chair when they said this; told them to clear out of the house; they said they wouldn't go out for me; one little man shook his tlst in my (ace; told him to get away from me; he says ??

The examination closed with this testimony, and the jury, after consultation, returned the fol lowing verdict, viz: '?That the deceased. Henry Sehoulte, came to his death from a pistol ball fired from a pistol in the bands of Joseph Gerhardt. at parties who were assaulting his house and wife; which par ties the said Schoulte was driving from the prem ises of the said Gerhardt. by whom the said Schoulte was employed as bar-keeper. We find that the ball entered' the right breast of the de ceased. about one inch from the right nipple, and after passing through the breast came out near the surface of the skin just under the left arm. We also find that the deceased was a poor man and had no property.'' Thf River?About 9o'clock this morning the wharves at the Navy Yard presented a lively scene. Tbe steamer Water Witch arrived up from New York, via Norfolk, with about one hundred and thirty seamen, the crew of the Ply mouth, which is about to proceed to sea on a gun nery practice cruise, as announced yesterday. I'be men were immediately transferred to tile Ply mouth. Tlie steamer Collyer reports the arrival at Al exandria of two sea-going schooners, having the appearance of the regular eastern packets. The only a-rival at the city wharves was that of the schooner Advocate, Captain Adau 8, from Salisbury. Eastern shore of Maryland, with lum ber for J G. Smith & Co. Repairs upon the Long bridge have not yet been commenced, owing to the strength of the current, but as the pile driver and timber are all upon the spot, when operations once commence but a shoit time will elapse before the work will be completed?a result "devoutly to be wished*' in view of the present extortionate price* of coun try produce in our markets. We learn that Mr. Chai les Church has beca appointed by Commis sioner Blake to superintend the operations?a sure guarantee that no time will be unnecessari ly wasted. TLe steamer Engineer, lately purchased by Mr. Lynch of New York, from the' Government, is to be plated on the Rappahannock river, under com mand of Capt. Geoige E. Mattingly. The ter miuii of her route will lie Fredericksburg and Tappahannock. At nine o'clock, the steamer Washington left her wharf with the Sabbath school of the Foundry church. The excursion party numbered about three hundred. The steamer will proceed to the W hite House, where most of the day is to be spent in the usual manner, stopping at Fort Washing ton on her return. The lowering skies prevented many from availing themselves of the antlcijnud pleasures of the occasion. For the first time this season, we noticed the tug Guy idle at Page's wharf. She will, however, during the day proceed to the Navy Yard, and take in tow the " Kngineer," for Alexandria. Tbe steamer Mount Vernon is still upon the ways at Alexandria, and her owners apprehend her repairs will not be completed under four to six weeks. The steamer Maryland left Baltimore yesterday morning to take in tow from Chesapeake City a large nurnlier of boats for Alexandria The current in the river has considerably sub aided. but the water is aliout as ??clear as mud."

John Robinson, of this city, held the previous day for an examination, was discharged, nothing appenring in the testimony to implicate him in the riot. Accidkst.?Yesterday,a young man named F. Fridley went into the workshop of S Flynn, coachmaker, on D, near Twelfth street, and ex hibited a pistol. One of the workmen, named Michael Armstrong, took the weapon, not know i ing that It was loaded, and fired it at Fridley, the ball passing into his arm, Inflicting a famful flesh wound It is another warning to young 1 men to discard such dangerous playthings.

Th* Cocntbr Meetiko ?'We alluded inoiu Issue of yeaterday to a call in circulation, for a public meeting of "all citizens of Washington who desire a full and impartial judicial intesti gation of the outragw perpetrated at the election in this city on the 1st instant." This meeting was held at the City Hall last evening, and we presume the persons who partic ipated in if, will admit that we do the meeting no injustice in saying it was sparsely attended. Richard S. Cox, Esq., presided ; and Mr. Robt. T Knight was appointed Secretary. On motion of Mr. J. F. Polk, a committee of three was appointed 011 resolutions, and the chair designated Mr. Polk, John G. Adams, and Mr. John M. McCalla. Mr. Adams and Mr. McCalla having declined serving, Messrs. Jonathan T. Walker and F. A.Tucker were substituted in their places. The committee reported the following resolu tions : Whereas at the first precinct of the Fourth ward, while the election was going on in this citv. a large number of our fellow-citizens were killed and wounded by discharges of musketry fired npon them by the United States marines, then and there under the command of their officers, and such acts can be justified by an imperative neces sity alone ; and as various and contradictory state ments have been made as to the causes which led to and the facts and circumstances attending the said shooting, in the main affecting a large and respectable class of our fellow-citizens, and no public investigation or judicial inquiry has been nad to ascertain the truth in regard to the same, and as we l?elleve that such investigation should be open, free In the face of the world, and placed above the suspicion of interested or party mo tives : Therefore? Resolved, That a committee, to consist of seven members, one from each ward of the city, be ap pointed. without distinction of party, to elicit the whole truth as to the origin and progress of the events resulting in that dread tragedy. Resolved. That the said committee take such steps as may in their judgment be found most ex !ent to bring to the bar of public opinion and judicial punishment all and every person who shall be found by them chargeable with any dere liction of duty as a citizen or disregard of the law In the premises. Resolved, That the said committee be and thev are empowered to fill vacancies as they may occur in their number, and to increase that number if they should see fit to employ such aid as they may deem necessary, and that we will contribute our full share of the expenses of such action Re sol vfd. That they oe requested from time to time, if not incompatible with the coursc they may think best to pursue, to publish their pro ceedings. Resolved, That until the truth shall be ascer tained,or the investigation we propose shall have closed, we forbear to express censure or approval of any person or persons, officer or officers, asso ciation or partv, whose names have been con nected with thfs terrible sacrifice; and we advise all good citizens to bear and forl>ear from crimi nation or excitement, but calmly to await the re sult. and then when it shall be known let the full weight of their displeasure fall upon the guilty. The resolutions were unanimously adopted. On motion of Gen. McCall",-i committeeof sev en, one froin each Ward, was appointed to inves tigate the causc of the recent tragedy in the Fourth Ward. Mr. Cox and Dr. Clayton addressed the meet ing briefly, urging the necessity for a searching investigation into the occurrence of the first of June. After which the meeting adjourned. These gentlemen will dfmbtless be accommo dated with tlie investigation they ask 011 the sit ting of the Criminal Court next week. Real Estate Sales.?Yesterday, Jas C.
