" -" - ih>'j - .ur rmmwy i uo. was yesteraay aitcbarbed Tre??i the position in consequence of having been detected in scheming with a party named Smith, In Virginia, to communicate information to the letter concerning the secret of manufacturing a pecul'ar fuse It is well known that the se^r-ts of the pyrotechnic department of our Navy-Yard are guarded with great care from discovery, so much so that no titan employed therein is permitted to know more than one branch of the work on which he is employed. This measure is absolutely necessary in order that improvements continually made by Capt. Dahlgreen may not transpire to the detriment of the Government. It seems that several davs ago Martin received a note from this man Smith, who resides in Charlestown, Jefferson county," Va , asking for information in relation to the manufacture of different kind* or ruse, and promising an ample remuneration for the secret, and Indeed of communicating the fact to Capt. Dahlgreen. Martin kept the secret to himself, and went to work to find out all he could about the subject upon which the information was required. He was suspected and watched, and at last detected in a manner to warrant hia Immediate dismissal, which was done. Lictpkk'?Prof. Barnard delivered hia Hfth and last lecture at the Smithsonian last night Hla subject was, Circular, Elliptical and Rotary 1 olarization The lecturer illustrated the various binds of light?common light, plain polarized light, and circular polarized light?by means of apparatus difficult for us to explain. * After dismissing a few minutes the nature of the principles he Intended to illustrate, and proving by mathe wauuai uia* ou mc uiacrrucc in reiracuon and reflection, the room was darkened, and the various tlnta of circular polarized light were produced upon a screen. Circular polarized light can be forme* by rinsing a ray to mm through an ordinary quartz crystal, a glass tube filled with dissolved sugar, or through most of the volatile oils The next course of lecture* commence on Monday night l'rof. Alexander, of Princeton College, then givss a course of lectures upon Solar Eclipses, particularly that of last year. We are informed that the nature of the lectures will r?nd*-r them far mare interesting to the masses than any before this season. Cold Quart***.--It is well known that the ?.?u im i * ?kl. *V? - V..

Th- protection of property requires that these unfortunates should be cared for, and humanity suggests their con fiuement in the workhouse. where they may support themselves by their labor It it surprising that tbev would rather run the risk of freezing in the lumber-yards than occupy warm quarters at the asylum and pay for them by their laWr. The . reason is that whisky, which tbey cannot get at ,*the asylum, is as dear to them as life. %-r The Achievements o?

It was. however, finally agreed between tbe parties that upon delivery of possession to 1'urcell, and npon undertaking to pav the costs of tbe preceedings. the affair should end. and upon this agreement Coleman was dis- j charged On the next day. a demand was made i on Coleman for costs, which. It was claimed, amounted to ten dollars. Coleman's counsel, however, not agreeing with the justices in their legal right to make the demand, refused to pay anything until a bill apeelfying items was pre nrnica. a demand ln>wrlting wu mad.', but It | not appearing exactly right on lta face, was likewise repudiated, and thereupon Coleman was arrested. and committed to tbe county jail.

Davis was to-day commissioned as Colonel of tbe second regiment of tbe District militia, in place of Col. P. F Bacon promoted. E. C Carrlngton, Esq., was also commissioned as Captain of company A, Union regiment. Cb5tkb Mabkst.?This morning, the market opened with a fair supply of provisions in every department.
