LOCAL NEWS. fCT Though Til Sta? U printed on tbs fastest mm pre s In an truth of Baltimore, lto edition ie so lu(? ss to require it to be pat to preee at aa early hour: Urtrttttments, therefore, should be eat la before 12 o'clock ; otherwise they may may no' appear until the next day. Yrr Anothbb Dacisios on thb Liquor Law. From the various and nryla| decisions which or maglatratee give, daily, on the liquor law paseed ny the late Congress, we are led to infer either that oar national law makers are extremely careless In their legislation, or that oar Justices? well, that they differ aa widely aa the poles In their understanding of the I?n*uasre of the act. That It may be aeen what a hard nut they have to crack, we quote the law: "B? ti *nacted, f* , That it shall not be lawful for any p?r*on in the District of Columbia to aell, *i?e or admim'stir to any soldier or volunteer in tbe service of the United States, or to any perton wearing the uniform of such so Id If* of volunteer, any spirituous liquor or intoxicating drink ; and every person offending against Ihe provisions of (his act shall be deemed gnllty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof, before a magistrate or ccurt having criminal jurisdiction, shall be punished by a fine of twenty-flve dollars or Imprisonment rer thirty days " For fear such plain language might be misunderstood, an explanatory act was passed. The very last decision we have heard of is that of Justice Johnson yesterday. A man waa Been tn one of the public streets giving intoxicating drink to a number of soldiers, and acknowledged that the liquor belonged to him. He was arrested and brought before Justice Johnson, who decided that giving sway liquor In the street is not an offence againat the law If such a decision holda good we may expect to see queer sights on our thoroughfares, such as convivial parttea ranged along the cnrb, passing the bottie, patriotic bummers hobnobbing across the avenue, aoldier guests being Invited by our citlxens to come out on the sidewalk and take a amlle, Ac. Between the decisions of Judzee Merrick, Walter ard Johnson, the area for liquor drinking is widening in a manner that must be exceedingly refreshing to thirsty suckers. Lxvr Cockt.?The Levy Court mat on Monday. The Chair laid b-fore the Court a communicat on from the Treaaurer, stating that alnce the last meeting he had Issued forty six licenses to peddle in the county. A communication was received from the Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, asking that provision be made for station-houses for the police of the county, and the sum of $250 was appropriated for the rent of suitable places, and for fuel and llgbta A form of warrant to be used by magiatrates, was sdopted Licences to keep ordinaries tn the county were then granted tn Mr. Rider and Mr Arth The President was requested to notify Judges of the Circuit Court that the office of county surveyor bad become vacant, and aak that the place be Ailed. Messrs. Crawford and Loughborough were appointed a committee to prepare a bill, to be sunmi tied to Congress, to facilitate the collection of county taxes. It was ordered that a discount of ten per cent, be allowed to all tax-payers who pay the levy of 1S61 in the month of October, eight per cent, in November, and six per cent, in December, after which no abatement will be made. The president was requested to appoint a committee to ask Congress to give this court the power aad authority to tax wholesale and retail dealers in gooda, ware, and merchandize, Including intoxicating liquors, wine*, snd lager beer, ana the weighers of live stock outside the citics of Washington and Georgetown, and to declare all roads In the county public highways; and alao allow the court to apply to the use of the county the proceeds of fines and penalties. Should be Rbvobmsd ?We call the attention of the corporation officers whose duty it is to keep the streets and pavements of the city free from obstructions, to the lumbered up condition of Eighth street, between Pennsylvania avenue and the Post Office, with almost every coneeivsble kind and condition of wheel vehicle. This part of Eighth street Is rendered almost impassible to foot paasengers, and particularly to ladles and chllderen, by ths filthy and neglected condition of thecroaslug or entrance to the stables The standing, watering, currying and cleaning borssa on the pavements, and the washing of borstrs and buggies In such positions as to sprinkle the unsuspecting passer by, is a nuisance which should be abated This necessary work about a stable ought to take place back from the street, where it would neither render the pavement a terror to ladles and children, nor frighten horses aa they are driven along tne street. A visit of the corporation officers to this locality will, we have no doubt, produce a much needed reform Tm PnovosT Gvabd Hitch thsib Horses at Madams Dcpbbzs ?Madame buprn keeps a wall-known fancy bouse in Marble Alley The Provost Guard, (or some of them,} in performing their duties of keeping things straight, have the (doubtless) unpleasant task devolving upan them of spending a considerable portion of their time at this and similar bouses Onerous as the labor Is, the Provost Guardera are noticed not unfrequently to kiss their hands to the fair frail ones on leaving their premises, the gallant fellows doubtless thus taking occasion to snow that they bear no malice. On Monday night, a squad of the Provost Guard stopped at Madame's and grounded arms, and something later Sergeant Allen, of the Metropolitan Police, found the officer commanding the squad la bed within and the men cutting up high for their own amusement either at Madame'* or elsewhere about the neighborhood Officer Alien reported the party to the officer on duty at tbe station. Eiplosto*.?Ab the First Regiment of Pennsylvania Artillery, Col. Campbell, waa returning from the grand review yesterday afternoon, and bad arrived opposite the President's House, tue contents of one of ths ammunition boxes exploded with a loud report. The box was shattered, except ths lid, which waa thrown off, and the men seated on tt thrown abont ten feet into tbe air. Three of tbe men were insensible when taken up. Two of them were taken to tbe Union Hospital, Georgetown, and one was well enough to go on to Camp Those at tbe hospital are B. 8 Cowden. badly burned aboat the face and left hand, and probably Injured Internally; and D W. Taylor, burnt and bruised, but not Injured seriously. One of tbe horses had nls tall shorn of ita fair proport ons by singeing.

These flag* had been procured at the expense of the employees, snd at the appointed hear were run up, greeted with the bea;ty cheers of tbe crowd below upon tbe sidewalk. A short snd appropriate speech was then made by Mr G H Randall, an employee of tbe office, aad after a round of' cheers tbe crowd dispersed.
