Th* Citt Fitrui Visit th* Ahlm ?Yr Wday afternoou the Mayor and officers of the City Hall, the two Boards of the City Council, with tbelr Secretaries, together with several other gem tletoen, paid an official visit to the City Asylum, br invitation of the Conimisslc n-rs of that Insti tution, for the Durpcs* of observing its condition and wants. Ttiey arrived upon the place at four o'clock, and KM>?d there for several hoars, during which time tb* Asylum and its surround ing* underwent atbTi-ogh inspection .which gave mutual satlsfartlo-i to all parties. The Intenaant, Mr. John R Queea, during the time be has been tn charge there, has demonstrated to the full hi* ability to su per intend the Interests of the city at the Asylum with economy and judgment. Taking poMeaion of the place as be did, at a time when much was required of bim In reference to the amelioration of the condition of the farm, and ex periencing, shortly after his inauguration, the tire which consumed the old Asvlum. ?nd <uh?. quently having to set over the difficulties of pro Tiding temporary lodgings for the inmates pend ing the erection of the present building, his re sponsibilities have been great, and Liilabora ardu ous and unceasing. But be brought to the task **i?rgy and discretion, and has overcome all obstacles, however treat, in a most pra'ie worthy inanntr. for which the city owes him much. The Asylum and its environs will now compare with credit, with anv similar Institution in the South. The visitors tfok a survey of the building In detail, and fouud the wards neathy kept, the Inmates properly provided for. the sick well nursed, the food wholesome and abundant, and h>ard no complaints from any quarter They tben proceeded to go through the out buildings, visiting first the milk house, which Is built over a large, unfailing spring of pure water, and so con structed that a stream is constantly running about the cream vessels, keeping them at a uniform temperature. Below the milk house Is the cistern, supplied from the unfailing resources of no less than tourteen springs, which have their location til the immediate vicinity of the Asylum A pipe ltfcding from the cistern conveys the water to ttie vegetable room adjacent, where it is received by a Tari/? dppn trnuuk whoMtln -??vi ? o"-f ? UCIT2UI ?uc ^rwuiin grown on the farm are washed and prepared for the market daily. I ndex the same roof are two other larue rooms, one used as a repository of the utensils belonging to the place, and the otber 11 ted up comfoitably aa a lodge for Mr Kine, the excellent gardener employed by the Corporation under Mr C^ueen. All these rooms are kept in a neat, healthy state, and exhibit on all bands the presence of good mansgement. The wast* water from the milk bouse,cistern, and vegetable room, Is conveyed nnder ground to the octagonal tisL pond near by, which is thus kept filled, and tbe waste therefrom la discharged into a stream which meanders through the grounds at thla noint. The visiters expressed themselves ht^ulv pleased with the economy and good taste evinced in and bout the out-buildings, and went over the grounds, passing on th? right the stacks of rye and on the left the vigorous corn fields, to the river shore, where it is designed to erect a new and substantial ice house, capable of containing tbe entire yield of the large ponds near by In anniming up the improvements which have be?n effected, and in effecting wbicb the absolute necessities of each case have alone been consulted, several other necessities, not yet supplied, pre sented themselves for the consideration of the corporate authorities. The bams were found to he entirely inadequate to contain the hay, corn fodder, and other products absolutely requiring ucitri ui'ui iuc unuuyiDg mujences incident u> the winter season The erection of a new brick bam, coat ng 9-2.54)0 or f3 000, would be an economical measure in all respects to the Cor poration, in that much which is now rendered worthless for want of protection from the cause* above alluded to, would be saved and converted to valuable use, and it is estimated that the amount thus saved would in a frw years pay bark to the Corporation the cost of the expendi ture. Another want worthy ofhote is that of a good supply of water for the almshouse While the supply it abundant for the cut-buildings, which are situated at the base of the as;entto the main building, and thousands of gallons are daily and hourly running to waste, the alrnsbonse is not provided with water. With fourteen inexhaust ible springs within half a stone's throw, the en tire supply for the building baa to be conveyed in buckets up the bill, when at an expense of a few hundred dollars the waste from these springs might tie economized and forced into service by m?&ns of a hydraulic ram This is an important want, and yet susceptible of cht-ap remedy, and doubtless will recive the speedy consideration of the corporate authorities. .Much advantage would also accrue to the Cor poration In connection wi?h the services of Mr. king, the go-ahead gardener, by the erection of a botaouse for the propagation of early vegetables The coat would be but trifling when compared witb what would be galntd tn facilities for bringing the early productions of tbe farm Into our markets in competition with tbe early supplies of otber gardens Mr Ktng has selected wbat be deems an excellent site for a propagating bouse, a little east of tbe main building, should tbe Cor poration think proper to order its erection. After noting tbe various matters above-men tioned, admiring tbe vigorous appearance of tbe crops, and commending In high terms the good order and judicious management observable in ail dtrecMoii*, the visitors returned to the bouse, where a munificent repast had b^n re,d f< r them by tbe direction of tbe Commissioners, of which all partook with appetites edged by the previous exercise; after which, ttaev departed to their several houses, delighted with the Incidents of tbe afternoon.

His address was directed mainly to a review of the cours- of the democratic party with regard to the question of slavery, which, he contended, fully exhibited the utter want of consistency and principle on tbe part of all tbe leaden of the pirty.

AsmiCCLTUKK 1* THE AMXAXDKIA ClTT COUN CILS.? In tbe Board of Common Council, last ni|;bt, Mr Asbby, from tbe committee to whom was referred tbe application ef tbe Potomac, Pied mom and v alley Agricultural Society, reported la favor of a ljan of S to the Society; provided the principal and Interest be secured In a manner satisfactory to the Mayor and the President of the Council; provided, however, that said loan be first agreed to by a vote of the people, to be ascer tained by a poll to be taken on the 30tb day of August. Mr McKenzie submitted a report ad verse to tbe application, and recommending, In lieu thereof, S<MX> j>er annum for five years, to aid the Society. After considerable discussion, on motion of Mr.W blttlngton, the report was recom mitted, with Instructions to the committee to as certain definitely tbe terms on which tbe loan was asked, and tbe securities proposed to be given. In tbe Board of Aldermen there waa no quorum. Dischakgid ?Ephralm Halleck was veaterdav discharged from custody, and left Immediately for the North In company with bis father. Upon inquiry of the committing magistrate, we ascer tained that the discharge was not by him, but probably by the jailor, who was guided by the docket or record at the jail. Halleck had been held to await a further bearing, tt first charge being the abduction of a slave from North Caro lina Upon this be was taken before the court by habeas corpus, and remanded to prison, and three weeks time gven to obtain the evidence requisite from North Carolina The time has expired. He was also charged with offering to sell the negro in Baltimore and in this city. It is probable that the owner of the slave having recovered his prop erty is satisfied, and not anxious to prosecute the case further uoder the law of his State, where tbe penalty is very severe, amouuting to capital pun ishment. Assaclt Cask* ?Yesterday Catharine Burn hirdt was arrested by otflcrr Hugely and taken > efore Justice Johnson, on the complaint of Har riet Nicholson, who charged her with beatlug and abusing the prosecutor's children The evi dence showed that the parties live in the same hous*>, and the prosecuting witness being in ar rears tor rent, was a source of irritation to the ac cused. who, no d.>ubt, thought an occasional de scent upon the children would have a good effect upon tbe parent. As the treatment of the children wa? not very barah, and in cpnslderation of the old aire of tbe defendant, the case was dismissed, with an admonition that may prevent a renewal of tbe grievance. Patrick Doner was arrested by officer King for an assault and battery on Michael Johi s m, and was held to bail for peace by the same justice.
