Esq . and gave seasons against granting the request Various seeches were made by the Commissioners, and Rev. Drs. Smith, Danforth, Sunderland, and Rev. Messrs. Eva, Dunning, Jewell.

Tub Wasuixstox Aqueduct is now receiving daily large numbers of additional hands. Still there is room for several times as many as have come, for it is the purpose to set not less thau two thousand men to work this winter, il'they can be had The des< riptiou of men most wanted are qitarrv-m??n and stone-masons, with a proportion of ordinary lalvorers. With these tbe object is to d-> all that can l>e done in the winter time, and so to put the woik in readiness for an at my of bricklayers and stone-masons all alou^r the line at the opening of next spiing.

In concluding this notice we must not fiiil to mention the acceptable manner in which tbeSig iwra was supported by Mr. Crouch. Forthe first tiiue we heard hint siiuj Irish ballads, and we imlst do him the credit to say that his peiform aisce of them was the very best we ever listened to. Re-arrested.?C. A.

A few days since he reported the brig Fidelia in the river "e? route to Georgetown, from the city of Cowes " The Fidelia has. for some time past( been ninnlng between our city and New York as n packet, and Is. we believe, now in New York, awaiting a cargo.

We saw one this morning in the possession of Mr. Win. S.'Jones, bearing date lTc-'J; which shows that it has l*en in circu lation 74 years. The oldest building prsbably in the District is the warehouse now q,wned and occupied by W. H. Edes on Water street. It was erected in the Iear 17T2; four years before the signing of the kr-laration of lnde|tendcnce,' and has therefore been standing (45 years. For many years, it was the i?rincij>al hotel in Georgetown, and was the headquarters of General Washington when visit ing this city. Mr. W illiam S.
