bUOAL INTELLIGENCE. Tut. New Cope.?A public meeting held at Temperance Hall, last nigbt, pursuant to the following call: "Mtthmnies, Workimgmtn, and all others in favor of the New Code of Laws sre invited to at tend a meeting at Temperance HaU, on Wednes day, Feb. 3. at o'clock. Eminent speakers have been Invited to address the meeting." The meeting wm called to order, and John C. Harkncss, Esq., was chosen Chairman, and Jos. H Bradley, Jr., Secreta.-y. Mr. Job Angus stated the object of the meeting and Invited those present w'uo had any objec tions to the proposed new Code to state them, and they who were prepared to defend them would endeavor to do so. A voice.?Mr Chairman, how can a man object to the new Code who has never had a sight at it ? Mr. Cunningham understood that all who had objections could state them. Any one who had not seen the Cede was certainly placrd in an un fortunate position, hut doubtless the community was in possession of its main features. He was in favor of the Code as a whole; he bad looked through the book and fonnd that all the labors of the codifirrs had been directed to I he advance ment of the bent Interests of tbe jieople. Mr. Stewart would like the speaker to show how the new Code would benefit the mechanics' Mr. C said that be was showing how the Code would benefit all classes of our citizens. After some further discusaioii. tbe question was taken as to whether those who bad objec tions should be invited to slate th vn, and was carried unanimously. Mr. Stewart then put the question, how many volers was there in Washington and George town ? Only 2.UJ0 copies of the Code had been printed for tbe use of S.wiu voters, not one fiflh of whom bad got a sight of it. A Voice??*l am down on that part of the Code thar relates to divorce." [Cheers ] Mr. Stewart proposed to have the book read from title page to Jini? to-night. [Laughter l Mr. Clayton moved that this be regarded as a meeting of tbe citizens to consider the Coder, and that those who were in favor of it slate anything in relation to its acceptance. Mr. Clayton stated that he saw the advertise, menf, and as It was an Invitation lo tbe friends of I he Cods, he moved that those friends discuss the matter. Cries of "order.*' Tbe Chair??? That Is not the question. Ob jectors have been invited to state their objec tions." Mr Clayton?"I shall keep Ihe floor,and I now move that we resolve ourselves into a meethi" t-? consider the new Code." Mr. Wood proposed to amend the motion so as not to interfere with the previous motion. Mr. Bradley appealed to Mr. Clayton to yield to the wishes of the meeting, and let the former ?notion be discussed first. [Applause ] Mr. C. was willing to yield Ihe floor to those who could explain the matter properly, but now we were two parties. A Voice?move to lay Mr. Clayton's motion on the table." Mr. Stewart moved that Mr. Ould be requested to take the stand, and read the new Cod. paia grapb bv paragraph. [Laughter ] Mr. Wood took the stand, and said that be was going to vote for these laws anyhow; but be wished to state several objections to them. One principal one was that part which related to the eunday law. which was, in his notion, in contravention of the Constitution of tbe United Mates If a roan chooses to go a Ashing on Sun d?y?which Is Ihe working man's only holiday? this law lines him. while the rich man. who ran afford lo d-ess well enough to attend our fashion able churches, can drive to church and keep his footman waiting outside, and be may not be fined. Mr. Merrill stated that the first law of nature was self-protection One of the laws imposed a levy of fifty cents on every male citizen when ar rived at the age of twenty-one years, to pay for keeping up a military system; he objected to that One act provides that the Marshal may re tain in his possession anv, money collected bv him. He objected to that. Mr. Bradley refuted this positiou by reading from the Code. Mr Merrill then went on to state a large num ber of objections from a list which he held in his band; to all of which Mr. Bradley replied by reading from the Code, and showing that the objections were not in any respect sustained. Gre*t confusion here prevailed through tbe at tempt of a drunken man to speak, in a very inco herent manner, foi a short time, but the contu sion was at last quelled by tbe semi-oblivious individual being seized a id hustled out. Mr. M. then slated his objections to the ?unday E revision, which he contended was made for the eneflt of the rich and not of the poor. When the speaker had concluded the meeting was addressed by? Capt. E. B Robinson, who stated, that while he did not oppose the Code as a whole, yet sev eral serious objections occurred to him. The Code contained several most absurd chapters. He then went on for some time to state his objec tions, but modified them by saying that he was almost disposed to take the Code and trust to Providence for a reform of that portion of it that is unpalatable to the citizens. He closed by call ing upon Mr Robert Ould, of Georgetown, one of the Codifiers, to address the meeting. Mr. Ould took tbe stand, and stated, in open ing, that he held in his hand a copy of the pre posed new Code. If he bad brought the laws by which we are now governed he would have brought a couple of cartloads and at least a wheelbarrow full of dust He knew that there were many interests operating against tbe adop tion of the Code?the united interests of the gambling portion and the lottery agencies were dead against it. He then went on to explain the popular bug bear?that one of its fea' is imprisonment for debt, and stared that the same law now existed lu the District in full forcee. He spoke at some length lo this point, & i<i showed conclusively that tbe provision of the new Code was confined expressly to imprisonm ent for fraud Objection had been n ade to the Sunday provision. He wou.d state that the present law was fifty times more objectionable than the proposed new law ; the proposed one was largely a modification of the present one. The point about expulsion f? o"i school, which had been object* d to, related particularly to the cou.ttv, and had nothing to do with our city school system. L' nder the present Sunday law all Sunday amusements we;e unlaw ful. Let the objectors do thecrd tiers the justice to read arid understand that tbe Code only rela t?d to those Sunday amusements which were nuisances and an anuoyance to the public. In re Jation to the law of divorce he would say that but one S'ate in the Union bad a total divorce law? namely, South Carolina. The law only provided in this respect for the reasonable wants of the comm inity. The points were as follows: First, for anyeause which, by the laws of this District, renders a marriage null and void ab initio; and also, when it is voidable, as before provided, by a person marrying ahovetheageof twelve years and undr fourteen. Second, tbe Impotence of either party at the time or the marriage Thirdly, for the adultery of either party during the rnarrlag.. Fourth, where either party Is sentenced to con finement In the Penitentiary for tbe term of life, or seven years or more, where no pardon granted to the party so sentenced shall restore such party to bis or her conjugal rights. Fifth, where the female, before marriage, has l>een guilty of illicit carnal Intercourse with a man, the same being unknown to the husband at the time of the mar riage. Sixth, theabandonment by the party com plained against, of tbe other party for tbe uninter rupted period of three years, where the court shall he satisfied that such abandonment is de liberate, final, and unattended by any reasonable expectation of reconciliation. Could any decent man, said tbe speaker, object to such a law as that' In regard lo the usury law. the speaker con trasted the prexrut usury system With the pro posed one, showing the advantages of the latter most strikingly. The proposed law of admitting an infidel to equal privileges uim>ii Ihe witness stand with tbe t tiristian, b ?d been objected to; our present law would permit a notorious liar to be a competent witnes*. and was not an honest infldel entitled to as much privilege in respect to bis oath, as the degraded liar, who. for purest** of his own, would profess to believe in a God. It tbe jury h. li> Vf that tbe infidel i? ||ar| |( for t|,rni trt determine whether be shall be entitled to any credence Mr Ould spoke with great animation for a considerable spat e of tim-, sustaining every position which he assumed In a most triumphant manner, an<l was frequently Interrupted With loud eheers by the large . ..mpany assembled in the Flail, and on concluding, was hailed by a most vo< if rons outburst of applause. One point which the speaker tiMnhe.l ujx.u. we had forgot ten to mention, and that Was in relation to tbe law of slavery. The speaker stated that that law remain* d precisely as it existrd at present in the District It bad been deemed wise by the Cod.flers to let that matter remain untouched, for obvious reasons. Mr. Joseph II Hiadlcy was call'd upon, and ?poke in favor of the new Code, as a whole, and after a m wt careful scrutiny of its every chapter and sentence. He was f.ank, however, to say that he was totally opp?m*-d lo the divorce of inau and wife for any cause so that they might b? marrt d again; nevertheless be was willing lo bow to the overwhelming majority in favor of this law He alluded to tbe lien law, showing that It was infinitely more beneficial as a whole In tbe poor m m than the law now i* force in this District. In every respect the new C?d* was In finitely better than the cart load of laws now ia force In this District. In regard to tbe usury laws proposed by the new Code tbry were caI i ula'ed to do away with a vast d-al of fraud and pe<jury A man m* cou'd borrow his friend'* money to ielleve his necessity, and then aft?r agreeing to psy over interest could turn about cn his le-nefactor and prosecute biiri for charging him on-?-fourlh per cent more than the legal fate, and thereby avoid the payment ot ?u honest d"W Tbe speaker gave an illustration of our present usury laws by relating an incident of a man who recently came into his ofllce and stated that he had borrowed the sum of ome hundred dollars a on thS i'nm ? within the rnr Mid Interest twrntr H. the amount of one hundred and t? IL U Ur?' and ?nn owed tbe principal. ? char*cteri*ed the present infamous v*tem in proper terms. He entrested the pro ^ rairlf and candidly by the new Code, and see if on tbe whole they did not believe it was worthy of adoption. It bad been objected to on the ground that it Was made for the bene! t or tbe lawyer*. The beat answer to that objec tion was the fact that four out of every six law yer* were down on the Code because tbey thought it calculated to do away with their practice? every man by it being his own lawyer The Chair read two resolutions, a* follows ; Rnolrrd, That the Chairman of this meeting bs requested to call Ward meetings of tbe citi zens generally for tbe discussion of the new Code RtflvU, That the opponents of the Code are invited to select some of their number to attend ?0!* ?,f1et,nK? and discuss the provisions of thia Code fullv and fairly with others selected by the friends of the Code. y ^r*?,ution? adopted unanimously: and then the meeting adjourned.

Tbe unfortunate criminal will be remembered by all who have bad occasion to visit the City 1 ost Office, a* a young man of fine appearance and pleasing address. His fall from the paths of rectitude is said to have resulted from his association with a bad woman; and this woman, it Is rumored, was brought back to Washington this morning by officers Boss and Allen, who have been North to obtain further evidence in J0?"" of th<r robbery.
