" " ? nd the "National Volunteers" be;;an to collect ii little uroupsand converse in low tones, glancing :ver ana anon towards us, with that expression f fare which signifies distrust all over th* world. 'Ites" begun to think he wasn't wanted there, ['hat Idea soon be/an to receive confirmation, in hupe of confidential whispering* into his repororial ear by certain personal friends, (for be It mown that "Ites" has several very gortl friends imong the "National Volunteers~") "Itts" felt |fueer. He had been invited to attend, bad pur" sea to be present, ana was present. He liad lso purposed to give to the world a fair, imparlal account of the proceedings of the "National Volunteers" at that meetinir. held in th?t h?n er that stable. The more tie wanted to do this, be more it became apparent to Mm that the National Voluutetrs" had that to say and do rbich they would much rather should not tee layligbt. It really looked like tbe old timed (lira political associations used to meet and conoct political schemes with closed doors and seniaels and passwords After a while,when It becam^necessary to go to work, or go hoine without doing anything, our ourteous friend Cleary, the President of tbe National Volunteers, came to us and said that, as >ur friend he felt bound to say- that, while so far is he was concerned, he should be most happy to ?ave Itea" stop and take notes, yet there was a leclded majority of those present positively opposed to any reporter for the Srar b?"ing present.

Some caucusstug took place, and t was decided that It would be Injudicious to lave any report of tbe proceeding* j;o out, not >ven at colored by the friendly band of tbe Cohtitution. Dr. Boyle salil be hoped no report would be made; that tbe National Volunteers did lot wish any report of the proceedings to be pubished. Everybody again said ' aye " The Contitution inan was, however, invited to remain in iomnounton, as " friendly to tbe cause." Hoes says that at this point one of the sentries ip stairs happened to halt in bis rounds, and planting bis big hoofsdl'ectly over the convenient :rack of courss shut off all observation.

I uluuh ui unosc*. in designing a uriage, tne , engineer Is usually bound by certain 1 mita, such I aa tbe height of tbe roadway on top. and of the headway underneath. The approaches sl*o require consideration, and they are sometimes m re (tiAcult and expensive than tbe bridge structure Itself A careful study of the stream Is also necessary to determine the action of the eurrenta. and tbe danger to be apprehended from freshets. Tbe supports, usually of masonry, at tbe end of a bridge, are callrd tbe abutments, and when the saK im * t. ? ?*? ? ?? *- * >?vu i* u?cu mcj iiiuii ur uruuk ruou^u 10 rmiss tbe tbrust. Tbe supports in the stream, called pias, are built of stone or iron or even of wood, and as they have to resist a virtual pressure only, they may be much smaller than tbe abutments, and should be, to obstruct the watei way as little as possible. Many methods of forming tbe pins In tbe water are iu use, adapted to tbe various circumstances which present themselves The lecturer then described at some length the forms of coder dsms, caissons, and piles In use, mentioning especially the pneumatic pile, of Iron, which has been used in Kuropean examples, and in this country on tbe Pedee river in North Carolina. When tbe superstructure is of wood, it Is in thu form nf th? truss Af trti Iron, in any of the form* before described; when of atone, in the form of an arcb. Suspension bridges of chains or of wire ate rapidly gaining favor, and have been mach improved In strength and stiffness. The lecturer described by the aid of diagrama the suspension bridge?tbe method of anchoring the cables and tbe manner of stiffening by trussing and by wire braces. The tubular iron bridge built fey Stephenson over the Menal Strait was then described and compared with the suspension bridge over the Niagara by Roeblini; This , engineer Is entitled to the credit of having built the flrat railway suspension bridge of long span i (ttOO feet) after it haa been pronounced to oe imDossible bv thf> K.null*h Miirlnxn Several other forms o 1 Bridges were then described and illustrated by drawings. [commcsicatrd Columbian Tkachkks' Association.?Has it ( been abandoned or suspended, or has it died a I natural deith. I learn nothing of its action of late. Tnere is doubtless no better method for the teachers of this cily to secure their just influence in the great educational movements of the day than by regular associated meetings. Community t has a right to demand this of them. Whether a 1 public or a private teacher, the amount of money : paid them is sufficient to justify the people of the District In requiring an efficient Teachers' Asao ciation in this city. .As a patron of our achoois and deeply interested in their aucceM, I would 1 request that if the association of teachers long existing in the city has been abandoned, that a | convention of teachers and others interested in education be called for the purpose of forming an association which shall hold.its meetings evenings, the better to accommodate *11 interested. < "#15.00 pes Quarter or Tis Wkeks." \ l A Floral Compliment ?This morning, Hon. John Cochran, of New York, received from the American Institute, Baltimore, a beautiful vase or basket of flowers, as a complimentary acknowledgment of bis able address there last 1 night. The base of the vase is decorated with 1 thirty three diminutive representations of the stars and stripes. Above the base ft a large basket of rarest exotic flowers, exquisitely arranged, and around its edge bang small baskets tilled with the delicate and fragrant products of tbe green-house. A staff arises from the baudle from which floats tbe star-spangled banner, and ! on the top sits a dove bearing in its beak a spriu i of olive. The vase some three feet high, and 1 altogether is a floral achievement more elegant and significant than anything of the kind we bave ever before seen. i Arrest tor Larceny?Some time ago a gen- j tlemin stopping at Wiilard*' lost a quantity of money from his room The suspicion of larceny rested upon a young employee named Patrick O'Neil, but there was no positive evidence. The , honesty of the waiters and servants at the hotel j has been seldom questioned, and tl4cy. with the proprietors, were anxious to discover the oflender. A quantity of money was marked and put in a ' portinonnaie and iefl in one of the rooms A war- ( rant was then issued by J ustice Hazard and placed i In the hands of policeman Ward,charging O'Neil i with the form r larceny. The marked money 1 was soon taken, and O'Neil was arrested snd ' carried before Justice Hazard last night, and the marked money was found upon LI in. He was sent to jail for court. Somnambulism.?On Sunday morning, W. P Boteler, (son of Mr. C. W Bottler.) aged about 1G years, got out of his bed while asleep, and ruined thewli.dow of hit room, in the third story ( of his father'! dwelling, and stepped out, falling , a distance of 20 to 25 feet, to a porch below. One i of the family fortunately heard him moving about and the window raited, and consequently relief was soon afforded the unfortunate youth. He was verv badly hurt, and the extont of his injuries could not be certainly ascertained. It is feared his spine is Injured.
