Affairs at the CVy Post OJfUt ?Among the manv odd address* upon soldiers' letters, the following poetical Inscription, written In a delicate feminine band, was upon a letter that reached the Washington city post office a day or two ago: "Letter: hlr thee on thy mission; straight tf Camp Tennally go: Kf#n thVt?lf In ctaaM anM U* ?<? * gvw vvuVkl VU | ?V? ?W?

The following come* from some town "out Weit," of courae: "Way fiver to Washington quickly fly, To the brave Michigan Third, Company I; There let a gallant young aoldler, Alfred M Gardner by name, Be the flra* to unfold yoar contenta and read the ?ame " A letW reached the offlee the other day, a* thousands of others do every day in the week, ?o inde nitely add rented aa that no one could tell what to do with It It waa aent to some camp at a venture, and next day waa returned with the following peremptory and slightly Hibernian ln?*oriement, "Not for thla regiment. Don't aend it back again?mind that!" The following, received in thla city from a Kan*a? P. M , shows that the schoolmaster it not abroad in ?at country yet: "Oct 7, H*t. ?

To obviate thia thick pan en of glaaa have been aet In A groove* at the sides of tbe exposed apertures, ao constructed aa to alide up and down, the lower edge of tbe sliding pane having a piece cut out in a crescent shape, through which letters are delivered to applicants When large packages are to be delivered, tbe moveable pane Is pushed up, where It la caught and bHd by a aprlng until It is thrust down again. Thus tbe cold Is measurably excluded. A moat acceptable improvement for tbe benefit of the ladles has been achieved In tbeconstruction of an enclosed entrance or ante-room to the ladle* window, which la to be furnished with heating apparatus and appropriate furniture. The ladles window opens Into this ante-room, which is pri ??c, auu ior lue especial oenooi 01 iue lair sex. Gentlemen calling for letters for their lady frlenda receive them at the window formerly devoted to the ladle* When the City Post Oflcewti first built it was generally believed to be large enough for any possible contingency that might arise But the architect never dreamed that it was to be the scene of soch extensive postal operations as have been instituted there since the breaking out of the great rebellion, and therefore did not make his plan with reference to the receiving, assorting, and supplying of mail matter to an army of a quarter of a million cf men, to say nothing of a resident and floating population amounting to at least one half that number during the intermission of Congress, and added to that again the huge extra demands upon the office consequent upon the Congressional sessions Th* tremendous influx and afflux of mail matter thus dslly acenring, not only requires a large clerical force, which has been provided, but also an enlargement of the office, the necessity for which grows more apparent day by day Postmaster Clephane has promptly taken tbe initiatory steps towards effecting this important change, and asked the department for more room, and haa been assigned several convenient apartments In one of the adjoining wings of the Post Office building. With theee Increased facilities for serving the public, the Immense bulk of the mails now transmitted hither and sent away dally will be distributed and forwarded with proportionate economy of time All About a. Box*bt ?Last night, Patrolman Crown rushed Into the office Justice Donn, cUw*ly followed by several females, who w?re very much excited, and each woman trying to get the Squire's attention first The trouble seemed to be. when the case was sifted, that one of the UM U k,?A U??

It was exactly sucb an aggravation as that received by Mrs Ptlllcoddy at tne bands of Mrs Slmcox. Last night sbe went sgain for her bonnet, and could not get It, finished or unfinished In a moment of anger she seized upon a bonnet In tbe store, and remarked tbat sbe would take that If the other was not given up. One Samatag jumped up and seized the complainant, and took tne bonnet from her. Mrs White, tbe lady customer, accused the Germsn. Samstag, with assault and battery. Samstag then wanted to accuse Mrs White with stealing tbe bonnet, and Mrs. Behrens, tbe milliner, wanted to justify herself. Justice Doun ordered Mrs Bebrens, as sbe could not bring tbe bonnet herself to-day, (It being her Sabbath,) to end It to the office; Mrs. White to be present with the money to pay for It; and Samstag to kesp his tongue. The parties went off, not exactly satisfied, but determined to make thlnirs right in the morning.

On the ttth November a similar outrage waa perpetrated by aa army wagon while a lady was driving, reducing the carrisge to a wreck Most fortanataiy, the ladjr escaped uninjured, but the damage was such as to aalarga the expense of repairs As I am not the only sufferer by this reckle*s driving of army wagons, I would reapeetfully auggest that all who have been thus Injured 11* the coechmakers hill of repair*, with, vouchers, at the oHoe of Justice Donn, who will p%t the matter into a tangible shape for obtaining U??? fns waii9 anniiAft 1m I pecanitry mm < nwp*??, ?v. 7 ??- ??rrv,. ... securing a reit?edy for these manifest wror.n, 1 reroala very respectfully yours, H B A Bonnet roi Mrs Lincoln ?Tbe ladle* of New York city have been devoting their atten-1 tloe to a very costly bonaet, manufactured by Mr Higgles of that city, tod Intended aa present to Mrs. Llaeoln.

Cassell, paid a visit to the district night-school, Sixth street, (Island,) Thursday night The number In attendance was quite small, but the attention and order of thoae present were highly commended Although our city'a experience of night schools baa not thus far proved very exhlleratlng, we must admit that the order of the Fourth District night-school Is highly Indicative of future success The Trustees of the Fourth District are bestowing much time and labor in reorganizing the Island schools. This ts a good work, and though It may occasion a temporary inconvenience to tne teachers, It must In the end benefit them and their pupil* The life of a public school system is In the thoroughness of lt? classification?the having tbe right study pursued In tbe right time and place. Riser id ? An Interesting white girl, only 13 years of age, was rescued last night, by Detective Officer B<>st, from an assignation bouse kept by a y-llow woman. This is tbe third Instance within the last fortnight in which Officer Boas has been called upon by distressed relativesof girls (minors) to recover them from houses of ill fame, whither they have been enticed by procursses While our legislators are on the subject of judicial reform In this Dts'rlct, their attention may properly be called to the fact that there is no law here punishing tbe keepers of b?wdy bouses for harboring or enticing away gtrls under age from their homes. The fact that tbe victims of such villainy are white, will not disqualify them, it is to be hoped, ss candidates for redress at the hands of our law-makers. Polick Reports ?Yesterday, John C.
