F. Ring, (or King,) re mains uncalled for. At Magrudcr A Stone's wharf?Arrived schrs Mahlon, Nortwel, from Philadelphia, with 00 tons of coal; Havilah, Meekins, from Philadel phia. with 110 tons of coal. It becomes our melancholy duty to record the I suic de of a valuable horse, iielonglng to one of the teamster* at Riley's wbarf. The animal in ' question was of a melaiw holy turn in his youth, supposed to have been caused by the fact of his having gone blind at an early |*ertod of bis his tory. Being of* family of horses denominated in sporting circle* "thorough bred," and having t?een doomed by misfortune to the menial em ployment of carting oysters from the. wharves aWut the town, bis morbid state of mind grew upon him until one day recently, being in an ec centric mood, he al**olutely and Katly refused to work No persuasion or threat could inducehim to draw. He ruantcd his hoofs tlrmly in the mud, and said, as plainly as a horse could say it, that he'd see his master siuged before he'd draw an other oyster. He was accordingly let loose upon the commons, where he roamed several days, in aristocratic idleness; but being this morning com pelled by hi* master to convey from the wnarf a cart containing 9** bushels of oysters, he was observed to look desperate, and. Anally, without giving previous notice of his intention, he walk ed deliberately to the edge of the wharf, and turning his sightless eyes in the direction of his late disgrace, he plunged Into the muddy Poto mac. A few short struggles, a characteristic switch of his tail, and all was over! Thi?is the second horse suicide we have had occasion to record within the last year.

The G cart..* and Special Police have frequently of late had their attention drawn to the vicinity of the Capitol, by the reports of pistols in that neighborhood. By closely watching, they dis covered that the pistols were tired in the Capitol Grounds after the gates were clo-ed The Cap tain of the (iuards reported tbe circumstances to the proper authority, and was informed that the Capitol Police, after the gates were closed, fired the old losds from their pistols. This accounts for the reports of riots in that direction. Tin Fraxklix's Sec-oxd Ball comes off on Monday (light next, in their new Hall on D street between 12th and 13th street.
