Mr. Com missioner Wise informs us that, along the north* side of the canal, where he has been operating with the mud machine, a large proportion of the work of dredging will have to b? done over ayain. From Seventh street up to Twelfth, the channel which had been cut out so as to furnish a depth of live feet and upward at low water was so fllltd up during the heavy rain of Tuesday week, tbat the channel was found on examination after it was over to be but one and a half feet; the wnshlngs from the main sewers actually tilling in to a depth of three and a half feet. This extra sand will be removed the first thing to make room for a large fleet of Cumberland canal boats,which are expected to airlve in our canal with coal in a few days. At the Third street junction of the canal with the Tiber creek the rain washed something like ?J.imju bushels of sand and gravel into the canal, making a bar across which no canal boat could pa>s light, much less when laden with coal. The New Police Rcle?The ruleof keeping the Central Guard-honse open all day Snndaya, and of trying the cases in the afternoon which are brought in during the day, has been but re cently adopted, but seems to work beneficially. At any hour during the Sabbath day or general holidays an officer can be found at that station, and all complaints made there will be promptly attended to. On the Sabbath, the cases brought In the night previous are tried in the morning, after the Auxiliary Guards report for the morning roll call; the case's brought in during the day are tried in the evening before the Guards report for diitv. Yesterday, the complaints were not very numer ous. The following cases were disposed of in the trial room bv Justice John D.
