J Mka-ure for Cleamxo the Canal?A petition has been presented to the Senate (and referred to the District Committee) from a large number of leading citizens of Washing ton, including many of our most prominent I>hys:riaus, asking an appropriation for clean* sine ard improving the Washington Canal. Th?j estimates in the petition are made by a gi*n'ipman who has had more experiencs and Is tKttor posted soncernlng the canal than any other citizen, and can therefore be lully re lation. As a sanitary measure, the improvement Is ? r the first importance, and especially as re lieving the Whit-? House grounds from the ma laria prevailing there in the summer and autumn months; and it will be seen by the pe tition that a large amount of valuable ground cm be reclaimed ior Government bv the im provement at a small expense. The petition is as follows: To U.e honorable Senate of the United States in 9 o*frrrtt assembled ??Whereas the Washington canal, for several years last past used as a riaii sewer, has become filled up with a de posit Irom the washings of the lands contigu otis to i\ as well as from the several sewers ? mpty irg into it, thereby becoming, during cer tain seasons, detrimental to the health ol the ?ity : Therefore we, the undersigned, citizens ol Washington, respectfully petition your honor able body to make an appropriation for the re moval of said deposit, which can be done at a com; aiatively tntling expense to the Govern ment. And we would respectfully submit the fol li^wii s suggestions as the best and least ex pr m lvemode of performing th? work, by which this object will not only be accomplished, but a are at benefit will accrue to the United States, tiy n-aking with this deposit n^w laud on ttte swamp or marsh in the rear of the Pies dent's mansion, which is more particularly set forth on a map dated December I, IR63, a copy of -which, dated January 1, 1S6I, is also respect fully submitted. The objects to be attained, if your honorable kod\ eraiits the prayer of your petitioners, are: 1st Tne cleaning of the canal, somuc# needed jts a sanitary meisure. ?id The filling up of what is now a dangerous Xnlasmatic swamp, which, in its present con diticn, is bsre two-thirds of the time, and the noxctiE exhalations from which, during the si<n.mpr and early autumn months, has made th< 1 residential Mansion so notoriously un l.eal'i y as a place of residence, and which, to n ve y great extent will remedy this evil. Yi'ur petitioners believe that this obj??ctalone, V. ltl out tckir.g into consideration the other toeneri s herein tismeil, should be a sufficient ind'i .?ment to your honorable body to grant the f? propriation. Ry giving more uniformity to the topo graph y of that part of the city, rendering it much easier to embellish the grounds as a mall c r i a>k, lor which the surrounding: grounds nre intended 4t!i.

By creating fifteen acres of new land for the I'uited States, adjoining the Washinzton JMci.ument grounds, greatly improving the taire. 0 b By greatly improving the interests of con merce, and making a saving to the Gov cri ment and citizens of Washington. Since the taking lor war purposes of the aqueduct bridge at Georgetown, the coal which Jorm^rly arrived at Alexandria via the Ches apeek>? "and Ohio canal was brought in the canM O^rges diroct to Washington The taking of said bridge by the Government necessarily compels the unloading of the barges at George town. and the coal is carted thence to Wash ington at an expense not only to the Govern ment, but to the citizens,of one dollarand fifty cents per ton. B;, cleaning the canal to its original depth, l>aig-s can ariive direct trom Cumberland to "Washington without unloading, thereby saving: this additional expense. Your petitioners estimate the cos: of removing the material lrcm the caflal at forty thousand dollars. Fifty per cent, additional cost for piling and building a sea wall will make the proposed improvement, adding th^filteen acres c;f lac d &t an expense (including the forty thou sand i ollars for cleaning) ol four thousand dol Jais per acre, less than ten cents per square loot, while priiate property in the vicinity is tov; -elling ai from twenty-five to fltty cents j*?r -quare foot. This deposit would otherwise be carried to Hie river, to be to some ex'?nt reconveyed by floods to the canal. The estimate for removal Is bused upon the supposition that the material will be used for the improvement ol Govern ment grounds, which, il carried to the river, v. ill increase the cost. Aside from the important fact that a positive jiecessity exists for cleaning the canal, a great pi blic benefit will be derived from this mode of di.-j of tug of the material. A i <i your petitioners will ever pray. Mkstiko ok thkCakpentebp ashCabixkt IN*AKKB8 ? Last night the carpenters and cabi net makers of the Treaiui'y Extension and ??onnected with private shops met a: Tempi, r *iic?> Jiall, pursuant to adjournment. '1 he meeting was called to orderby Mr Hill yard, Mr. Letourno acting as secretary. Atter ieat'ing the minutes, the "Tetary, for infor mation, read the communication from Secretary Cna.-e, before reported, in reply to th^ request ol the hands upon the Treasury for an increase of per cent, upon their wages, in which ttie XecTetarv expresses his readiness to give the advance "when he shall receive satisfactory ev lileti e that the employers and contractor* not Ju Government emp'ov are giving the increased ?wages. 1 he committee to obtain certificates of con tra ors and bosses who are giving and are -wiling to give per day alter the 1st of May, rej orted the certificates of the following em ployers: John R. Hunt J. W. Scroggin, Del linger A. Downing, J. Moran, Chippie A; Grind, H. C. Holmes, Win. King, J. J. Birch,' Edw. ^?h emak-r, J. J- Fit/.hugh, Harvey & Co., J. A. Hiau fin motion, ihe report was accepted. Mr. Ferguson, carpenter, reported that, as directed, he had waited on Mr. Mullett, ol th# Trt aiury Extension, and exhibited the c^rtifi Mr. F. thought them satisfactory evi dence, .but Mr. M-Ulett did not. Mr. F. esked the meeting what would be satisfactory evi dence T Mi . Dasbeill, of the cabinet malters, reported tha* he bad waited upon Mr. Roger?, sui?er visirg architect, and the result was substan tially as in the case ol Mr. Ferguson. Mr. Jloge:s said he would willingly do what be rould to get the pay advanced soon as the *au?f:.ctory evidence re<iuired was obtained. Th? reports were accepted and the commit* lee thanked for its attention. Mi Sweeney, trcm the Arsenal woodwork ers, ret orted that acommittee had waited upon < apt Ben'on wiih a similar reqn st, and Capt. D. ex, rested his willingness to give the work men highest wages given. The workmen there are fully tan-fifd that il an advance is given hey will get it. Mr- Fergu-on taid that Mr. Mnllett's reply was that he wanted to.-ee a more general ex pression on tte part of private contractors and I ove-<. Some of the bo-ses say they are giving $3, others ^ay they are willing to give it. Mr. Keed asked what was the feeling of the journeymen. Mr. Ferguson.?The private journeymen, to far as I have been able to learn, are with the jneetlcf. Mr Py!e said he a-ked journeymen what they *x>uld do il the bo?see refused to give the a<l ?ance. Tbey replied (hat they wonld quit; but it ubwquntljr tpprtrfd tint tfte hands were pf rtectJv ready to do a* th? bos#**? said. A young man in amilitary overcoatremarked that be was working in a tfcop with but oae other band, aad was not anxious to throw him self out of employment; bat if it was the gen era! agreement., he was willing to <luU ** ouce if the increase was not given. Mr.C Leach called upon the private work men to speak out and tell their feelings, so that co-operaiion and concert of actioB may be had. Mr. Le'ourno contended that theobject of the meetir.g wss not to experiment?it was for de cisive ai tion to obtain (in Increase of wages. The Government agents want for evidence the certificates of steam mill proprietors, as well as contractors; and as for the steam tnill pro prietors, who expects to get their certificates ! Tliey have no sympathy with mechanics. No mechanic is found sneaking away in a steam mill. Forbearance has ceased to be a virtue; but if one stone remains unturned by which we may honorably obtain the advance, he was willing to take the pick in haud to turn it up. A motion was made by a young man near the door that mechanics comprising the meet ing strike at once, and '-stop work from to morrow morning." The Chair said before the motion was put he would say a tew words. He was in favor ot immediate action, and for a positive assertion ol their claims. Unfortunately for mechanics, they allowed those who have no sympathy for them to fix the rates of prices. Legislators fix the price of labor for all time, without regard to change, never locking to the mutability of circumstances. If they can fix the prices of labor, why may they not also fix the prices of living to correspond with them ? He declared that it had always been the fault of mechanics that they placed too low an eetima'e upon th<nnei\e6. Now the mechanics here have exhausted every honorable means to put down the combination against them, for there is a combination. It Mr. Rogers and Mr. Mullett, :u.d the sash factory man, he did not know him, and did not want to. [Voices?"Baldwin," ?? Baldwin !"] Chair?well, if they who have grown wealthy by the labor of mechanics, were asked if there is a combination, they would say yes! He might be discharged to-morrow. The sv ord of decapitation might descend and cut off his heed, but let it come. He did not fear it An elderly gentleman rose and asked for a moment of attention. He said that he put his name to the paper with the other workmen, not with a view to strike, but to obtain an in ct ease of wages. He had confidence in Mr. Chase, the Secretary ol the Treasury, who had always acted toward them as a gentleman, and from the first had requested them not to strike. Mr. Chase bad not refused to give the advance, nor had Mnllet. All they ask is sufficient proof that outside workmen are receiving those prices. Let a further effort be made to obtain the proof required, and Mr. Chase, who Is not unreasonable, will give the Increase. A Young Man.?This meeting is not a repre sentation of the carpenters of the District, but ot the Treasury only. I can live without wor k six mouths: but if we are to strike, let us strike together. Another spoke of the poor show of interest on the part of outsiders and Treasury hands. Nothing can be made by a strike where nothing can be gained. Mr. Chase has said he will dis charge every one who strikes. We who are voung. and those who have no families, need not b^ frightened: but there are-aged men atn?ng us who have families, and cannot leave this citv. Another young man said he was opposed to procrastination, and would vote to strike for their rights. Procrastination will always bring unsatisfactory answers. Mr. Retd thought that a reconciliation might be effected, by which inside and outsld* hands can obtain ?;! per day before the 1st u* May. He was in favor of postponement until a full ex pression cf journeymen can be hid. A cotn picmiee can be effected between those for and apain6t an immediate strike. Mr. Letonrno held that Mr. Chase would not be bcbered with the matter, bat had left it with Messrs. Rogers and Mullett. Oil motion, it was ordered that notice of the next meeting be published in the S'ar, and tne meeting adjourned. Tadi?v Lincoln's Thkatku.?Tadd Lin coln, the sprightly, Intelligent little fellow wLoisscgrtat a favorite with all visitors at the White House, has fitted up room No .1- of the Presidential Mansion as a miniature the ater, in which manager Tadd gives theatrical psrlormnnces once or twice a week, his com pai y consisting of mem1 ers of the Bucktail regiment now doing duty in the vicinity of th* Wbne House. The theater has a handsome stage, with gas foot-lights and appropriate scenery. On either side ol the stage, at the top, are placed hand some vases filleH with artificial flower?, while in ihe center is a bust ol the lamented Colonel Raker, (a great friend of Master Lincoln's) who was killed at Rall s Bluff. Immediately in front of the stage is a space partitioned off by a wicl>et fecce. That portion of the hall set apart for spectators is furnished with settees, sofas, and cushioned chairs, sufficient to ac commodate quite an audience. Master Tadd lias effected arrangements with manager Gro ver by which he is enabled to obtajn such cos turres as are necessary to give due effect to ihe pieces produced at bis little theater. llis audiences are general composed of such of his nurneious friends, both male and female, as he may see proper to invite: and occasionally the President ar.d Mrs. Lincoln honor the perfor mers with their presence.

OEAFXEH, CATARRH, wid diaeaaea of the EAR, THROAT. AND AIR PASSAGES. Dr. LIOHTHILL., from 34 St. Mart Place, New York, Autnor of "A Popular Treatise on Deafness" " Letters on Catarrt," will make his second visit to WASHINGTON, MONDAY, Aran, 11th, and can be consulted at tke Ebbitt Hocs? for oki wsik until Saturday evening:, April 16th, on DEAFNESS, CATARRH, and all the various diseases of the EAR, THROAT, AND AIR PASSAGES. From the Rev. Fred. S. Jewell, Frefesser ?f State Ktrmal School. Albany >'? V. This may certify that I have been, since 1811, snbjeet to violent periodical attacks of catarrh, marked by a highly inflamed condition of the lining membranes of the cavities of the head, producing a most dietreeeing species of head ache lor days at a time, wholly incapacitating me from business, and during the paroxysms confining me to the bed. In some instances the inflammation has extended to the teeth, occa sioning toothache ; to the threat, producing hoarseness and partial loss of voice ; aud and twice it has so affected the left eye as to con fine me for a month or more to a darkened room. These attacks have been accompanied by strong febrile symptom?; by stoppage of the head, and, in the first stages, by watery discharges from the noee, subsequently becoming acrid and yellow, aud towards the close of the attack becoming bloody and purulent. I have tried mM|icinesof almost every kind; external ftp flpations to the head, such as camphor, gin ger, hot bandages, and fomentations of hot vinegar; snuffk of some half a dozen kinds, and other catarrhal preparations, together with in ternal rvmediea. such as alUsiatives, cathartics and emetics. Theee have produced no change in the occurrence or character of the disease, and, in most cases,'with little or no temporary relief. I had come, at length, to believe the disease to be praztlcally beyond either cure or material alleviation. Under these circumstances I was led some five months ago, to make a trial of Dr. Eistht hill's treatment. His method at once approved itself to my judgment, as simple, philosophi cal, and likely to be efiective. Notwithstand ing the disadvantages under which he labored, iu dealing with a disease of such long stand, ing, aggravated by nervous debility aud dys pepsia, and constantly iuduced by the acci dents of my professional labor, I lound the treatment reaching the diseas9 as it had never been reached belore, and producing such a modification and alleviation ol its character, as I had supposed imnossioie. I chronicle the results thus. Although I have been situated several times, so thai I should formerly have believed a severe attack of my catarrh inevita ble, I have escaped thus far: the symptoms of threatened attack have been very light, and have vielded to the remedies employed by I)r. Lighthill, without need of recourse to the old hot fermentations, or emetics; and the dischar gee lrom the head have resumed the original and natural condition. I count upon a com plete cure. That I have been able, however, to obtain so material a relief is to me a cause ot pratitude. In that alone, I am repaid for whatever the treatment may have co3t me. I make this statement unsolicited, as a means of acknowledging my obligations to Dr. Lijjht hill's method of treating catarrh, and with a ?view to aid any who may have snttered from that disease, in forming a just opinion ot its merits, and its probable utility in their own case. Frkdk. S. .Tewkll, Prof State Normal School. Albany, N. Y., March 11, l*Gl. Catarrh Cui fd. From K'v. A*. /'? Kussell, Lynn, Mat*. I have been much troubled with Catarrh of the worst type for some twenty years. It gradually grew worse, producing cqugh aud hoarseness, destroying tne sense of smell, and brtaking down my general health to such a degree as to compel me to resign my pastorate, and suspend public speaking. 1 made diligent use ot the useful remedies, such as snuffs of different kinds, nitrate of silver, tar water, olive tar, and inhalations, but without anv salutary eff'Cts. Last sum mer T heard of Dr. IiightbiU's successful mod* of treating catarih. visited him, and put my self under his treatment I began immediate ly to improve, and this improvement has gone on to the present time. Mv catarrh has gradu ally melted away, my cough has disappeared, my voice has become natural, and I am once more able to preach the blessed Gospel. Lift me advise all troubled with catarrhal difficul ties to apply to Dr. Lighthill. P. Ii. Rr?8KI.L, Lynn, Mass., Feb. 1, 1^<i*2. mh :j|-eo;;w BALLS, PAP TIES, &c. SK C O N D G K A N I> It A L I.
