To all the talk crested by thla position of things s new Impetus was given this morning, by the announcement of the arreat of Mayor Berret on charge of disloyalty. It was at first supposed that the arrest wss sn Immediate result of hia refusal to take the oath of allegiance, but subsequent developments showed that Government bsd causes for his srrent quite independent of his action in connection with the Bosrd of Polity Commissioners. Mayor Berret left the Bitting of the Police Board about7 o'clock p. m. He was arrested at hia bouse on H street in the course of the night, but so quietly was the ar. rest effected that probably not a single resident of the neighborhood wms aware of the movement until long after the Mayor had been placed upon the teals, and was far on bis way to Fort Lafayette, New York harbor. a m esi as i iist to *b /ob* bbbbvt. About S o'clock thla morning a colored man was seen In the vicinity of the Tressury Building, Inquiring anxiously for ths residence of Mr John Berret. On being questioned aa to his pertinacious search for this party at so esrly sn hour, he said thst he was entrusted with an urgent message from the wife of Mayor Berret to his brother John, informing him that Mayor B "had been arrested at hia house at 4 a. m , and would be sent away by the 8 a m. train to Fort McHenry." ms. bbbbbt at thi cabs. , The person to whom the colored man communicated this Information hastened to the cars and met officer Yeatman to whom he said, '-They've got vour Mayor is quod, and are bringing him to toe cars " Officer Yeatman replied, "He Is not my Mayor," but took position by the station railings, snd on the arrival of the Mayor paid his parting adleux to his chief. Mayor Berrst reached the depot 10 minutes before 0 o'clock, and spent tbe time until the departure of the train in conversation with hia guards, (who were In citizens dress) snd with such of his friends ss had got scent of his arrsst In season to meet him at the depot. Mayor B. pat the best face possible on hia position, but it was quite evident to those who saw him that his cheerfulnes# was forced, and that he appesred "to have something on his mind " There were but few persons at the depot when Maytr Berret, accompanied by two gentlemen (strangers to those around) and an officer of the army, took their places In the csra. Shortly before the departure of the train, Mr. John Bsrret (a brother of the Mayor) arrived, vary mnch agitated apparently; snd s few momenta were devoted to conversation by the two, the substance of which Is snly ksown to ths officers In whose custody the Mayor sppesred to be. Upon the departure of the train, Mr. Jobs Berret turned away very much affected ; and to a suggestion thst the destination of the Mayor was probsbly Fort Hamilton, replied, " No, Fort Lafayette " paocaxsiBGS or ths coaMissiopsas or rout s. We are enabled to lay before our readers to-dsy ths fallowing very Interesting rsport of the important proceedings of the Bosrd of Police Comm s?loners during the week : Mondny?The board met in the City Hall at 10 o'clock a m , pursuant to the order of the President of the United Slates; present Mavor Berret of Washington, Mayor Addison of Georgetown, and Commissioners Waliacb, Tenney, Bowen, and Brows. Ob motion of Mr. Wsllsch, Mayor Berret was called to the chslr, and Mr. Brown appointed acting secretary. Mews. Addison, Tenney, Wallach, Bowen* and Brown submitted their oaths of office. Mayor Berret declined to do so, upon the ground that tbe osth which he hsd taken as Mayor of \\ aahlngton rendered the aubacrlblng to any new osth unnecessary, being s member of the board only by virtue of his office as Msyor of Washington. Mr. Tenney (of Georgetown) opposed thla view of the esse, st some length, and on motion of that gentleman the question was referred to tbe Attorney General of ths United States for his decision Ths Bosrd then proceeded to effect s permanent organization, when Richard Wsllsch was elected President, Jos. F. Brown Tressurer, snd ThCB. A. Lszenby Clerk. Oa motion, the salary of ths Clerk was fixed st SI,000 per sn num. Ob motion of Msyor Berret, the Csptaln of the "Anxlltsry Guard," and the members thereof, were continued In office nattl the 1st of September, 1861.

Tknrtdijr. ?The President laid before the Bosrd the following written opinion ef the Attorney General: opinion or tbb attobhbt sbikbal . Attobbbt Gbbbbal's Ornca,) ?i August, 1861 S Sir : Your letter ef the 81st last presents for my opision the question whether the members of tbe Bosrd of Police for the District of Columbls. crested by tbe set of 8th August, 1881, entitled ' An act to create a Metropolitan Police District of tbe District of Columbia." Ac., are required to take tbe osth of allegiance prescribed by tbe first section ef th* set of the ssme dste, entitled ' Aa set reqslrtsg sn osth of sllsgtsnce snd to support tbe Constitution of the United-States." The Metropolitan Pollee Act above referred to, Bee 4, provide* that Immediately upon Its passage, ths President ahali appoint oy and with ths sdvlce and conasnt of the senate, five Commissioners of Pollee, who shall be the chief officers of tbe said Metropolitan Pollcs Districts, snd who shall severally possess and perform therein tbe powers snd duties enjoined by this act. The said Commissioners, together with the Mayors of the cities of Washington and Georgetown, sx-srilets, shall form tbe Bosrd of Pollcs for the ssld districts, snd a matorlty of tbem shall conatitute a quorum of such board for the traaaactlon of business The Police Board referred to in your letter, constats then, of seven members, five sppolnted by the President snd ths Mayors of Wsshlngton snd Georgetown. Tbe Mth section of tbe asms act provides that the Board of Police aha 11 snsoslly, en or before the first Mondsy in November, report in writing the condition of the police within ssld districts to the Secretary of tbe Iaterlor. Ths set of August, 1681, requiring the osth of slteglssee, (see 1,) declares thst ltsball be ths duty of the beads of the several Departmsnts to casssto be admlatstered to each snd every offices, clerk, or emplo) a bow in their respective Departments. or Is sny wsy connected therewith, or who shall hereafter In say wsy become connected therewith, ths osth therein proscribed; aad f in her that essh sad every sach civil officer sad employs la ths Departments aforoaald, or la sny way connected therewith, 1b the across or eariptoymsat of ths United States, whs shall refnas to taks ths osth or laffirosstlea ths rain provided, ahall bs Immediately diamlanad aad discharged from sach asrvtea or employment The quaation, then, is, are tbe members of ths Boart of Police officers in tbe service or atnpioy st of the United Stales, is say wsy connected **? pf Oepsransr u referred to ? ara efitosrs In the service or employWa< the Usited taaan cannot well bs ques ** 4. Ths sffioa thsy held Is created and Ita | dutiee e<e dfined by act of Congress; ive of them ars appointed by the President, and tbe other two are declared members of the board because they bold certain office* which were created by acta of Congrees; their compensation and all the expense* which aaay be Incurred In tbe discharge of their official dntlee are to be paid out ef the Treaaary of tbe Ualted States; and, finally, they'are to make periodical re porta to the bead of one of tbe Departments of the Government. Tbe membera of tbe Board of Police are, tbea. officer* In tbe service or employment of tbe United Statea ( Are they, aa such officer*. In any way connected with any one of the Department* * The 24th section of the organic act, as we have seen, make* tt their dnty to report annually In writing tbe conditlon of tbe police within tbe dlatrlcts, to the Secretary of tbe Interior. By tbla provision they are certainly "connected" with tbe Detriment of the Interior, and I cannot avoid the concluaion that they are therefore directly within tbe letter of tbe statute which mafcea ft tbe dnty of the head ef that Department to cause the oeth in question to be administered to every officer or employ* in any way connected with his Department. The act doea not attempt to define what kind of connection with tbe Department shall bring the officer within its terms, out It is careful to extend tbe duty of causing the oath to be administered beyona officers who are * tbe Departments to theiarger circle of officers who are in any woy conntctid with the Departments, and it la too plsln for argument that the dutv of making an annual repOrt In writing of the condition or the police to tbe Secretary of tbe Interior, directly connects tbe-Board of Police with the Department of which be is chief, and imposes upon him the obligation of causing to be administered, and upon them the obligation of taking, tbe oath prescribed by the act. Thst tbe Board of Police are within the spirit of this set Is, I think, equslly clear. Tbe purpose of tbe act, as la well known, la to apply a stern and much-needed test to the fidelity of public officers entrusted with the administration of the Government in a time of great public peril;?a peril fearfully increased by repeated and shameful instances of official treachery and misconduct. And certainly it doe* not demand the liberal spirit of construction to which the wise nnd benifleent objects of the act entitle it, to bold that It applies to a class of officers who are specially entrusted by It with the conservation of the pesce and order of the National Capital, and upon whose integrity, fidelity and xeal the Government relies ss one of its means of support. Other reasons occur to me why the Board of Police sre of tbe class of public officers to whom tbe oath In question should be administered, but 1 do not suggest them because I think the proposition i* too plain to need further illuatratlon, and because the time within which this opinion Is required will not allow. Of course tbe duty of taking tbe oath attaches to every member of the Board of Police, whether he be appointed by the President or be a member tz officio as Mayor of Washington or Georgetown, since tbe act makes no exception of any class of public officer*. 1 do not here express an opinion on the point whether any of the members of the Board are exempted from taking the oath prescribed in the 3d section of the Metropolitan Police Act, becsuse that oath Is Included In tbe terms of tbe more stringent oath pre,cribed by the other Act of the same date, which we have seen that It la the duty of every member of the Board to take. I am, Sir, very respectfully, your ob't servant, [Signed] Edward Bates, Attorney General. Hen. Calib B Smith, Secretary of the Interior. Considerable debate ensued on the reading of this opinion, during the course of which Mayor Berret expressed a willlnj;n?s? to take the oath prescribed by act of Congress, but not the form sent from the Interior Department, which was taken by his fellow members and published in this paper. lie urged members to hesitate before they assumed the responsibility of depriving the representative of 60,000 people of tLs District of a seat in the Board. The Board not being willing to act in the matter without giving it due consideration, adjourned until next day at 5 o'clock p.m. Y?tt?rday?Mr. Berret submitted a lengthy written opinion of J. M. Carlisle, Esq , Corporation Attorney. This legal opinion, we understand, la to the effect that the Mayora being ex officio membera of the Board, were not obliged to take any eath of office to qualify them to take part in the proceedings of the Board. After read, lng this opinion, Mayor Berret declared his purpose not to take any new oath of office. Mr. Bowen then offered the following resolution : Whereas, the Attorney General of the United State*, in compliance with a request from the Board of Commissioners of "The Metropolitan Police District of the District of Columbia," has through tbe Secretary of the Interior given an opinion in writing that under the act of Congrees entitled ' An act requiring an oath of allegiance and to support the Constitution of the United states to be administered to certain persons in the civil service of the United States," all persons claiming memberahip in said Board are required to take and subscribe to an oath according to the form prescribed in said act; and, Whereas, James G. Berret, Mayor of Washington, declines for reasons fuliy aet forth in the official opinion of James M. Carlisle, Attorney for the Corporation of Washington, dated August *23, 18fil, to take said oath, aa well kb the oath prescribed lu the act creating the Police Board, and the members of said Board deeming themselves bound in their action in this matter by the opinion and ruling of the Attorney General of the United States, (tbe highest law officer of the Government;) therefore, Rtsolvtd. That the said Mayor, in the opinion of this board, is not qualified to act as a member tx-officio thereof. After considerable debate, tbs resolution was passed by the unanimous vote of Messrs. Addison, Bowen, Brown, Tenney, snd President?Mayor Berret declining to vote. The Mayor then delivered a speech in his best style, (of the nature of a valedictory,) and took bis departure. The written opinion of the Corporation Attorney was taken away by Mayor Berret, who promised that it should be hsnded to the clerk of the board to be entered on the journal We understand that It bad not been received by that gentleman at 10 o'clock this morning. The President laid before the board the following letter from the Secretary of the Interior, enclosing the opinion of the Attorney General: Dipaitmist o? thi Intkrior , > _ August 23, 1881. ? To Richard Wallotk, Etq , President of the Board of Police: Si* : Upon the request of the Board of Police, as made known to me on the 19th Inst , through * f Brown, Etq .acting secretary, although entertaining no doubt myself upon the subject, I submitted to the Attorney General the question whether or not the Mayors of Georgetown and Washington were required by law, as tx-officio members of that board, to take the oath of aliegiance specially prescribed by the act of the 6th lust, for all officers in the service of the United Statea? A copy of bis reply, dated the 32d Inst , is herewith enclosed, from which you will observe he is of the opinion that each member of the board is alike required to take that oath. Very respectfully, your ob't servant, (Signed) Calkb B. Smith, Secretary. The Opinion having already been received and acted upon, the communication w*s-fald on the table. Tbe President and Mr Bowen was appointed a committee to wait upon the Secretary of the Interior in regard to tne equipment of tbe police, and the Beard adjourned. Tbe Mayor, at his office In the City Hall yes- 1 fc^ay. seemed to be nervous, fidgety and dispirited, and his mental excitement was lncreaaed by every publication concerning him. One of ] his employes remarked at tbe City Hall this morning, in presence of s?veral gentlemen, that if Mr. j Berret had not beeii arrested, he would have been < awsy from here la less than two day*. Rumor say*, wekflow not how truly, that in the "contraband" correspondence taken from tbe Leonardtown stage a day or two since, were letters Implicating Mayor Berret and others . the occasion ob his albbst The course of Mayor Berret In connection with ' the Boerd of Police Commissioners, (Including his final refusal yesterday to take the oath,) , could not have been tbe particular cauae of hla i arrest, because the meetings were secret, and no 1 publication of tbe proceedings, even to Govern- i meat officers, was made until this morning. cam! too latb. A telegraphic dispatch, addressed to Mayor Berret, charged wttn a toll of fit 30, was received : in this city this morning, and was sent by Justice i Dona to tbe Provost Marshal to be opened. 1 who is mayoh o* washih0toh ! It is probable that Mr Wm T Dove, President < of tbe Board of Aldermen, will act as Msyor of i tbe city. It baa been usnal for tbe Mayor to deputise some one to aet In hla absence No such setectloa havlag beea made, Mr. Dove is rather doubtful of bis right to act; but Mr. Carliaie, the Corporation Attorney, we hear has notified Mr. Dove of the sbseace of the Mayor, and la of opinio* that be Is the proper one to aet I* bis stead. Mr. Dove bases his doubt as to belli ^ legally authorized to set, on th? ground that the charter provides that in case of the death, disability, or reslgnstion of the Mayor, the Councils must proceed to elect It is held by many that this Is a case of''disability." Sir iocs A ft* at ?Last night, sbont half put ten o'clock, an affray occurred at Hath-r's res tnnrnnt, Fourteenth street, near the amae, which came near proving fatal to the proprietor. While Mr Butler and two or three friends were standing at the door, Henry Turner, very much intox'cated, was talking noiaily and abusively Inside. Mr. Butler went to him and told him to stop It; be would have no such language there. Turner put his band in hia pocket, and Butler told him not to take out his pistol. He tpok his hand out, but the witness (Mr. Nugent) did not see any knife or pistol in his hand at the time. Turner lmmedlatelv ralaed his arm and struck Butler, and then the witness saw a knife in his hands. Butler ran to the door, and Mr. Nugent followed after Turner and knocked blm down. County ofllcer J. R. Williamson, who was on the pavement, rushed In and seized Turner, and after a hard struggle got the knife from his band. It was a pocket knife of an old pattern, with cork screw and other useful attachment. Nugent bad hla est cut entirely across one side in the severe scuffle. Butler was cut In the^ace and breast, and was at once put under surgical treatment. Turner was taken to the guardhouse, and this morning exhibited the usual Indications of a debauch He listened penlten#v to the evidence; offered no excuse, and appeared to be very much troubled. Justice Walter committed him to fall; but he remains in the custody of county officer Williamson until the condition of Mr Butler Is known, and If the wounds are not dangerous he will be admitted to ball. Summoning "Ppkrits" from thk vastt dkkp ?An old lady of plumptltudlnous proportions crossed the Alexandria Aqueduct at Georgetown yesterday, the guards finding her papers all right So far so good But after she had passed an unaccountable clinking was beard In or about her ample dimensions. The guards thinking something was wrong with her Internal combinations?like the boy In the Pickwick Papers who swallowed the buttons, and rattled when shook ? horrified the matron by proposing a search. This she strenuously objected to, Dut " mlfcht makes right" these times; the search was proceeded with, and resulted In the discovery of twenty-six pop bottles " all around her waist," tied by the neck to?what shall we sav? to the upper limb or rim of her crinoline. She claimed that this was mineral water for the soldiers. but on the removal of a cork, the aroma of whisky "warranted to kill at forty rods" was very perceptible. Taste confirmed smell; the bottles were conflsca'ed, and then and there broken and the old lady departed a sadder and' a slimmer woman. " Mineral water" la now held in strong suspicion over the riyer, and yesterday several sutlers were sent off with their stock. Thi Liquor Law Casks.?Yesterday afternoon the following cases, under the recent act of Congress to prevent the selling of liquor to soldiers', were brought before Justlce Donn within an hour: James Redmond, Patrick l^eonard.snd Patrick O'Bryan. Each was fined S25, according to the requirement of the law The two first very quietly submitted to the law, but O'Bryan's language in reference to the law and the law makers, and the government generally, was of a most offensive character, and called for the Interference of the justice, who stopped his month by the promise of a night's lodging In the county jail for contempt. The pleas that the liquor Is "not sold," "not sold by the proprietor," or is "given as a medicine," are all worthless Those selling, giving, administering, or permitting the same on their premises, are equally liable to the penalty. Affairs at the Arsenal.?Some of the employees at the Arsenal having slighted their work somewhat In the musket cleaning department, and complaints having been mad? that many of the arms would not go off, yesterday Major Ramsay visited the armory and made quite a speech to the men. expressing his belief that the Condition of the muskets was the result of negligence rather than of design, and declaring that If more complaints were made he should discharge the whole party. He was not willing to believe that there were secession emissaries employed there, but If such was found to be the case their punishment would prove severe.
