Yesterday morning at 4 o'clock, a Are broke ant In a row of eight frame houses on t'uion street, near rbe fish wharves, which communicated so rapidly that they were all consumed before the lire engine* could be got to work Tbey were all occupied, and a part of them are said to have be longed to Robert Jamieson. Esq Th* Great Gcaso Ship.?We have jit*t paid a visit to the ship John E Thayer, at her wharf, Alexandria; and, besides being courteously re ceived by her commander, Capt. Poosland, (who Is as hearty and gentlemanly a specimen of the homo as ever walked the decks of a sub ntantial threc-ina*ter.) we had the pleasure of a walk throughout the largest merchant vessel that ever plowed the waters of the Potomac. The Thayer was built in lw54 by Paul Curtis of Bos ton for the Liverpool packet service, and is regis tered for 1 .(Jill passengers. The tonnage is up ward of l.SIUOtohs, but her cargo is about 3.0UU tJns. She is -JM feet long and .11 feet hold.draws ?Ai feet water with full load, and Is in all respects a crack craft. Her cabins are more like our me tropolitan drawing rooms than anything else, lieing finished in the most beautiful style, of ma hogany and papier mache, and furnished with ? very comfort and convenience that modern inge nuity could devise fhe is a first-rate sailer.and being lightly sparred, works admirably in a heavy breeze, answering her rudder readily, and flying over tiie waves like a prize yacht. She was managed by thirty hands on her home pas sage; something under her complement. >?*veral hermaphrodite and other brig* ariived at Alexandria during Saturday and Sunday; also a Boston packet schooner, together with various river craft. About the coal wharves quite a large number of Philadelphia and New York schooners lay at anchor, waiting for return cargoes of coal. About the wharves there seems to be every in dication of a brisk business, notwithstanding the general depression and the tightness of the money market. . Disorderly Conduct.?On Saturday night, a number of rowdies armed with guns. pistols.&c. went to that portion of the Fourth Ward, known as ',Swauip??odle." built a bonfire, and commen ced stoning house* tiring pistol* and guns, and to mislead witnesses, using the names of the Franklin. Colunibin. ami State* Hose Companies as rallying cries. Those companies did not as semble or go out. it was evident, from the fre quent attempts to create an alarm during the night, that it was the purpose of those rowdies to get up a fi'e riot, for they were armed for such a purpose. The material for the bonfire was a stack of hay belonging to Mr. C. Wendell, in the ileid adjoining the Government printing office. Several police officer* and guards got among the crowd and disarmed several of them, bul could only disj>erse the crowd without being able to secure their prisoners, and carry them to the guard-house: the number opposed to them being too great. Among the weapons taken is a very tine double-barrelled gun, heavily loaded, and capped, taken by officer Mcllenry from a man who was preparing for a shot at one of the officers. The police force must be enlarged. Cacoiit htm XarriXG.?On Saturday last, a man. O. Shunger, met with a slight mishap at a place called '? Bull Frizzles,'" just above George town. on the Falls road. He had got sleepy from some cause or other, perhaps from the cigars which be had been smoking. and lay down nti a stone wall near the a>*ovt* house for a nap. How long he slept he not know, but when he awoke he found hirr.?elf minus a very fine gold watch, some small change which was in his p<?k?t. and triakats a# ?"tne value. He Im mediately charged the inmates of the house with the theft, but a strict examine on was in stantlv* instituted by the landlady of the house upou tLe pr son* of sundry boys attached to the premise*, and nothing turned up to substantiate tue charge* ; so t!.e v. anger sleeper was advised to o to Georgetown ..:id communicate with the constituted atithoriM** there with a view to the recovery of the abst: sr led property. W hethcr he did so or not is not known, but the probability is that feeling rather fool. <1: at the manner of losing Li* valuables, be has pock.ntd the !t>*s quietly, and will look out for a better sleeping place when next ne becomes oppressed with cigar smoke Bcrqt arv?La*t night. Mr. AlvaDenharr,re ft.ding on F street north, near Thirteenth,discov ered a colored man in L.s house, concealed.

ImuvMnTf.?Among the noticeable pri vate residences in the cour?eof erection is a three story brick, iu process c.f construction by C. F.

The morning service was interesting and impressive. Sermon from the text "I ask, therefore, for what intent ve have sent for rat '-Acts 10th, ^Jth. The Rev.'Doctor, in his discourse, stated that he wished to have a fair understanding between the pastor and the people of his congregation at the start: h? stated that it was not his intention to preach from eclec tic culling* of the Scriptures: tnat he should, ac cording to his strict line of duty, preach every thing in the -'Word," and nothing which was n.?t; lie should expound no strange or erroneous doctrines, for if strange they were erroneous He dwelt upon the fact that he had parted from a congregation over which he had presided for up ward of twenty rears; that his parting from those many of w'ooui he had known from their earliest infancy, was a duty of a painful character; he gave the congregation to understand that he had not sought them, but they him; that he should, with Divine assistance, discharge all his duties faithfully for the good of his flock. The congre gation present was very numerous, and deeply interested in the eloquent and strightforward words which were spoken. The Chnrch is now in a very good condition as regards members, some ?fry-two news are rented, and applications come in every uny. In a short time the seat* will scarcely be sufficient to accommodate the wants of the growing congregation. Doubt is kxteesseo If sufficient time will l>e allowed the people of the District to read and de li Iterate upon the new Code of Laws prior to l>e. lng called upon to vote on them; also, if the twenty-five hundred copies to )>edistributcd wll[ s.iffic-to effect the object of the law which re quires that su. h " a sufficient numlier of volumes of said code oe printed and bound as may be ne cessary for the amplest distribution of the same among the people of said District, and for the preservation of said code; and a copy thereof shall he furnished to every justice of peace and every jud-re to each court, to each clerk of said court, to each coroner, to the levy court, to each public school, to each public llbiary, toeach public De partment of Government, and to the Mayor* aid each of the Councils of Washington and George town.'' Street Improvement.?A large number of men. under Commissioner Espey, aie grading N street south at its junction with Sixth street west, near the newly-purchased mansion of Mr. John Miller. The old and rusty-looking locust trees, which have stood the test of time for a long space, alonir the line of the street, have been cut down, and the grade lowered six to ten feet below the old grade. This will furnish one more con venient approach to the Sixth street wharves for many citizens in that vicinity. About Mattinoly's new Wharf soiii? com plaints have been made that the proprietor is ex tending the wharf out beyond the point which the law specifies. Mr. M., to settle the matter, has requested the Commissioner to bring an au thored Surveyor and have the place surveyed, to prove to those complainants that he has not exceeded the bounds required by law. The new wharf is a commendable enterprise on the part of Mr. Mattingiy. who has done much during the last eighteen months, to improve this portion of the Seventh Waul. Littlk bots sometimes ask droll q nest ions.

Not withstanding. it inav he possible, from what we have gathered of Mr. Custis' intentions in rela tion to this proj>et ty, he may 1 ave provided in his will, If he left one, for the citizens of the three cities using It as beretore. Still the absence of the venerable former owner will tend in no small de gree to lessen the pleasures of those who may hereafter visit this very popular place. Several colored youths, among them one named Ma:tin, and another Brooks, supposed to have i>een concerned in the violent assault and battery on young William* were arrested on Saturday and taken before Justice Reaver For the want of sufficient evidence, however, to implicate th? m in the matter they were released.
