In view of all the k eir< umstaaeev dismissed them. The facts w?-re that the gentleman called a driver and told him to ^rran^e to carry hia family and baggage away in the afU-rnoon. In a moment be was surrounded hy - whips,and to rid himself, threatened with a forcible remark to use bis cane. One of the hacknaen replied In an equally orthodox style, which was all the ground of complaint. Lieut M< Henry, as soon as he beard the complaint, remarked of the backmen "that they are really an annoyance to strangers, and he had told the officers orer and over again to keep them back to tbe curb." He further remarked that, as the btckmen are so tenacious of tbe law wh?n strangers olT-nd, the} sbonld expect to be dealt with as strictly. Passxxocks r? Stzaxek Mosticxllo fob Niw Yon.

I have to requeat the favor of you to ifive a place in th? Constitution to tbe resolutions and the correspondence between Mr Hall and inyaelf, ao that my fellow-citizens generally may have an oppo'tunity of determining whether 1 have merited tbe censure pasa*d upon me Very respectfully, your obedient aervant, John B. Blah [Correapondence of the New York Tribune ] libkktt at tub fbdbral mbtbofolis W athi.\utoi Citt, July W7, I860. The following resolution* were unanimously pused by the Republican Association of this city, at a meeting held at the "Wigwam" on the Wth Instant Whereas the United states Commissioner of Public Buildings, John B Blake, has withdrawn th? permission previously granted republicans of Washington city to erert ludi 11 berty pole as would have been a credit alike to the great republican party- and the metropolis of the Union, and from which was to float an ensign bearing thirtythree stars and thirteen stripts? our country's flag?an emblem of the union of the States : Therefore? Rrsolvrl, That we regard this withdrawal of permission heretofore granted to all political and other parties as an act of petty tyranny and proscription, which could only emanate from a mere partisan, and an agent of such a corrupt political party as now governs the nation. Ketolrtd, That the attempt of the Commissioner to hide bis act behind the shadow of late is only a nol timl and ku ht??rfni/?? mrxti mnk*?a th#? act of prescription more palpable from the fact that inch a low (if any) has to long been allowed to slumber or to be violated with impunity, the evidence* of which we have had and still have all aiound us Ke.'olrtd, That, whereas such permission has been denied RsHMinw hv the United States Commissioner of Public Buildings, we, the iiiemi?ers t f that party in Washington, wishing to prove ourselves law and order abiding citizens for the present la tbis esse, waive our kiohts in the national capltol, and deem it advisable to erect no LIBEKTY pole until the inauguration of that n*tioial partt which shall establish in this city tiuk libxety and the equal rights of the nieml>ers of all political parties, and who shall regard the l>istrirt of Columbia as the property of the satioh, and not a section of onr country Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be furnished the press for publication^ \ Washing to* Citt, D C., July II, I860. Sir : At the request of several gentlemen who are desirous of erecting a liberty pole on which to hoist a flag, 1 take the liberty of addressing you, to aak your permission (as Commissioner or Public Buildings) to erect one near the ranter of the open npiice in front of the Bank of Washington, at the intersection of Louisiana avenue, 0 and Seventh streets His Honor the Maror has given bis consent, as far as his power extends over said streets. Should \our permission be given. I can assure you that, if they go ahead, they will erect a pole that will be botn safe and ornamental. An early reply is req nested Very respectfully, your most obedient, G. A Hall. J B Blakb. Esq , Commissioner of the Public Buildings, Washingon, D. C. Orrirx Comxi?sio5ei or Ppblic IIvildixgs, i July lb. ls?o. < t*ir: Your lrtt?r of the 11th'inct . requesting permission to erect a Ul??rty pole near the centre of tbe open apace In front of the Bank of Washington, waa handed tome whilst at dinner, which prevented nie from Kivlug it the consideration to which it was entitled. As yo^ mentioned that tbe Mayor had given his consent, ] requested the hearer of your Tetter to state to you that I had no objection. fMuce then I have bed an opportunity of examining aa to the extent of my authority over the matter, and 1 find that, so far from being authorized to grant the permission yon requested, it would be my duty, under law, to remove tbe pole, if erected. I therefore have to recall the verbal acquiescence, in the permission you obtaiited of tbe Mayor, which I communicated to you through the nentletnsn who delivered to mc your letter. I shall refuse all similar applications, come from what source they may, very much regretting that a sense of duty will not allow me to gratify my fellow-citizens In a request which wfias so harmle** and unimportant Very respectfully, your obedient servant, JoH.1 B.

CoMVlKri AND AoKlCCLTrRK i* THE ALBXiMiki* Cit^ Councils?At a called meeting of the Alexandria City Councils on Friday night last, in the Hoard of Common Council tbe Chair laid before the board a communication from the Mayor, enclosing: n communication from J M. Vernon, which statwi that Mr. V. was m rout? for F.nrope, for the purpose of making arrangements with a company in Bclgi um to furnish the capital to but Id vessels tor direct trade lie wanted an expression of opinion on the part of this city as to the feasibility of the project, and desired to know if it would meet the approbation of tbe people He did not want money, but wanted friendship iu tbe undertaking. The communication also suggested that an appropriation of 9/ysi would be i)nite acceptable. The communication was laid on tbc table. I John A Washington, Ksq , President of the Potomac. Piedmont and Valley Agricultural Society, was introduced to the Council, and (the Board of Aldermen having been invited into the chamber of the Council) addressed the meeting Mr Washington said that he appeared as the organ of the society, of which he was president, to ask a subscription of foW?i or f 10 UW to aid the association in opening an agricultural fair here this fall. After the city bad expended vast sums to constructing railroads, this was but a means to render available and to realize the benefit of those large investments. The crowds which would visit this city, and the trade which would flow from their coining, would speedily repay such an outUy. It was estimated that this fair would bring L3,?Xi people to the city, whose expenditures would be at least S75.000 The interchange of couitesies the openings of trade between the visitors and citizens of the town, would leave valuable business in its wake; it would secure an annual flow of people and money into the city, which would be not for one year, but for all time _? + ^ ? ? ? * i v iuuw we numiK pia< e?l on these fair* by other cities, he mentioned that Richmond had given *50,000 to the Central Agricultural Society, and Petersburg 937.000 to a similar institution, whilst Wheeling had offered the Central Society 815,000 to bold one meeting in that city. He hoped the Councils would take such action as they believed the interest of the town dem^uded. On motion of Mr Ashby, a committee of two was appointed to consider the communication, and Messrs Ashby and McKenzie were appointed said committee. lu the Board of Aldermen, after they returned to their own chamber, the action of Council on the communication of J A Washington, Ksq., was concurred in, and Messrs. Armstrong and Hryan appointed a committee on the part of the Aldermeu, to take the subject thereof into consideration. All Aboct Ducxs ?This morning a colored man. for years a huckster in the Center Market, and well Known to our citizens as Goodln's Ben,was arrested by officer King and taken with a basket of ducks to the uffice of J ustlce Donn It appeared that live of the ducks were of another person, and B?n wa? not aufborixed to sell them Ben wax required to accouut tor bta possession of tbem. He came to the city laat night. and atopped at his mother's on the Island; while there Ben's ducks, bv some means, got out of the basket, and got mixed up with the other ducks. It it very d fflcult to identify duck* that are so much alike Ben couldn't do it, and so they were put together In the basket. This morning, however, the owner of the fire ducka managed to pick his out of the flock Ben waa perfectly willing to give them up, and the case was dismissed. ________ Columbia Aixoit and thb Volv.ntbkbs? The volunteer companies which quarter at the Columbian Armory are in want of light, it would appear from their complaints It seems that tue Gns Company has cut oil' the gas because of the bill which remains unsettled. This bill is chiefly the cost of gas used during the time the volunteers stayed at the armorv by order of the department or President, while the Harper's ferrv excitement existed. Though a company paya its proportion of costs, <he gas is (till cut off because the whole is not paid. This shows the neceesit y of some kind or general organization, that will insure an attendance to the*- minor detail*. It la otily since the disorganization of the regiment tUat these things have been neglected. A* Unlvcky Cut?By an Important improvement in the vicinity of the Bank of Washington, the drainage of that lot was seriously affected, | the improvement cutting off a drain that was constructed from that lot. The consequence Is the filling of the ceL'ara under the bank property with water, which, during the prevailing hot wither, la not ve.ry conducive to the health of the neighborhood It waa an object of curiosity yesterday , and to-day men are employed in pump mg o.u iiit wtier preparatory to a drying-up" arrangement.

Mr Editor . I am glad to see tbat tbe captain of tbe National Rifles denies that he or anv of his corps has anything to rto with tbe current diacuasioa in the Star relative to the military. Certainly. I could not suspect tbe Captain of ridiculing bis own tine corps, or anv other of the companies of tbe District. No one who ever possessed a spark of military spirit w?ld do so. Now, that the letter-writers are burlesquing i our military companies may be proved by the , following passage relative to the National Rifles ! in the article signed " A Military Man" In tbe Star of Thursday laat He " Tbe feet of the case Is th'=it there is a young [ company just beginning to bloom cut into the proportions of a full and well-drilled and wellbred organization of men, who. by tbeir eu< rgies and unremitting endeavors to have an exception to the " poor apology for military" In this city, have excited the envy of some of the more sensl tlve of (1 suppose) a certain company of inftntry, ' who ace clearly now that to have any place among good toldttT* they must pay greater attention to their tactica, which seems qnite sufficient cause for the envious slur Intended only forthe National Rifle* contained In hit communication." That the corps he refera to la beginning to be ' " well drilled I claim as a fact, but that they are i Just beginning to be " well bred" I deny. The* ! and all the companies of our city are comp scd 1 of already originally well-bred gentlemen. The uncalled-for attack upon other companies is beneath the dignity of a soldier; and the captain of , the National Riflrs may well Inform the public i that he and his corps are not guilty- of it, j though the public knowthem too well toattriliut* It to thein. In order to save all other companies from like aaperfions, I now declare that I am not | connected with anv infantry corps in Washington. With regard to the remainder of 44 A Military Man's" ?ffort, I have only to say that walking 44 arm in arm*' with a member of Congress does not increase bis capacity to judge of military performances; and as for his having that44 honor" be alludes to, It Is probable that tie and myself occupied similar positions at Vera Cruz, and the service oi uom of lis aian t anord material ior camp chat at Vtrgara. I only wish to save our military from the extravagant acrlbbling of letterwriter* like " A Military Man." Oxs OP TBKX. WSSLIY CbaML aud the ?lavibt C} cannon?The male membera of Wesley chapel, of this city, have, generally, signed a " calm, but eariieat protest," against the action of the late General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church on the slavery question ; expressing the j Opinion that all interference with that subject can ! be productive of no good, but much evil, and fraught with danger to our national prosperity. ' They recommend that the members of that | church, while deeply spmpathiilng with their brethren of lf the border," patiently await the session of the Baltimore Conference, In March next, having confidence that that body will so act as to subserve the true interests of the member* within the bounds of the latter organization. As we understand the matter, the General Conference was under the control of ultra anti-slavery delegates, j and have given offence to the membership in j slave-holding States bv the enartment of anew chapter on slavery. or Allkts.?The paving of the alleys in the squares No. 77 and '214, the hills for which j have passed the Councils, will soon be commenced. as we learn from the proper officer. It would 1>e of vast benefit to the health of every square if the alleys were all graded and paved. Tney are the receptacles generally of the flltb of every square, and the sleeping apartments of many families open into them llnpaved alleys are not effectually reached by the police regulations. and consequently are seldom cleansed. The stagnant water, decomposing vegetable substances. &.c., serve to poison the atmosphere ( which families residing around such alleys | breathe, and sickness must ensue. The alleys should be as carefully attended as the streets ? they are the air passages of the squares.

A letter from there says: * 11 wa* rumored here, a few days since, that tbe republicans were about to memorialize Gov Letcher for perini*sion to erect another pole. It Is also said that J C l'nderwood has ceased to elalin to l?e a citizen of Virginia, and refused on Saturday last to exercise his commission as a justice of the peace. His commission expired on Tuesday He has closed his establishment, and declares he will bave no more work done in Virginia. Some of the republicans are still anxious to raise the pole ayain."
