Owing to the day, there was sorae rather mulfy riaying on both sides; but the battint; was excellent, and the fielding quite "tollybur" Pope, Hines. Maal, and Fisher, of the Pythian, all did their parts remarkably well, and l)odson, Newton, Colt, and Faherty of the Potomac, showed excellent and sprightly playing.

We append the score: Pjtntffar Putk mmm tectioh For It is frequently tbe <ase that weeks and probably months elapse before the action of a grand jury can be bad in those States to make the necessary demand for the rendition of criminals Tbis does not correspond with the action of the authorities in Maryland, who recently remanded to this city a German who robbed his employer of ?G00, notwithstanding efforts was made for his release. It fs to be ho|>ed that more congeniality of opinions will exist between our Circuit and Criminal Corn s, as it has long been u byword in this community that what is law to-day will uot be law to-morrow, as Is evidenced by the decision of Judge Crawford in August last, and the decision of Judge Merrick (bound by the decision of the Circuit Court majority) of to-day. Should tbe decision of the Circuit Court judges stand as ttie law in the District of Columbia, this Federal metropolis will be the receptacle for thieves to a greater extent than it now is for runaway slaves and free pauper negroes.
