Canterbury.?This is a most delightful place for fun lovers to pass a pleasant evening. The acts are varied and short. and theaudienc* is never wearied by dry, long and tedious per formances.

A Fair and Festival, for the benefit of the Fourth Presbyterian church, is now being held at Odd Fellows' Hall, and the agreeable ladies in attendance offer a splendid display of fancy and u cetul articles and confectionery, which will be disposed of c heaply. Meeting ov tubCarpbntbeb and Cabinet Makers.?An adjourned meeting of the Car penters and Cabinet makers was held last night at United Hall, 11th street, Mr. H. Hillyard in the chair; Mr. F. W. W. Letourm&n, secretary. Mr. Harmon, chaliman of the committee ap pointed to draft the by-laws and constitution, arose and reported the same, which be pre faced by remarking that It is not expected that every one should mink alike. Therefore they should come together with the determination that the maiority should rule, and the minority should acquiesce in the decision of the majori ty. The committee had prepared the rules to the best of their ability, and the meeting could amend them if they saw proper. If the mem bers differed, let them reason together and not think evil of each other. Mr. Harmon then proceeded to read section first, of article one, as follows : " This association shall be designated by the name of the Carpenters and Cabinet Makers Association of the District of Columbia.'1 A gentleman here remarked that he would like to know who were to be members of the association. Were they to be regular carpen ters, or was the association to take in all who came along! Mr. C. W. Dashiel, cabinet maker, was op posed to the name, because if a man wanted a carpenter he did not wish a cabinet maker. He ?the speaker) suggested that the cabinet makers iorm an association of their own. Mr. C. Woodward said that at the la -: m eet ing they met as mechanics, and it was resolved that they should unite together. If th9y smar ated they would fail. He was in favoi of sticking together, and getting what they w? re entitled to, and if they did not he would recom meud that they quit work. Mr. Dorsett remarked that a good carpenter could make a great deal of cabinet ware. They were all mechanics, went to the same markets, and should therefore stay together. Another speaker suggested that it was best to have two associations and both work to gether with unity. A motion was made that the cabinet makers decide among themselves whether they would go with the carpenters. The vote was taken, and the cabinet makers decided to ferm an association of their own. On motion, the words "and cabinet makers" were stricken out of article one, and as amend ed was adopted. The remaining articles of the by-laws and constitution, as reported from the committee, were adopted without any material amend ments. Article 5 requests all journeymen carpenters to join the association within one month after going to work, and if any journeyman fails to comply with the provisions of this article, all the members of the society are compelled to cease work in the shop where said person is employed. Article S provides for the appointment of a committee to investigate all charges made ag&inst members. Article 10 prohibits members from working lor a less sum than the rate of wages attached to the ccnstitution. The committee reported the following scale of prices for the action of the society: First-class hands t3 tOper day. i>econd-class hands 2 75 " Third class hands... 2 50 " The isquiry was made as to what constituted a first-class hand. Mr. Letournan suggested that all who had eervtfi-* regular apprenticeship at the bnsinesa be declkPKl first.ciass carpenters. When he (the speak' r) signed bis haute to t*i?i constitution he put himself upon a level with all his fellows workmen. Mr. Harman, from the Navy Yard, said a man came to him for a job, and he put him to werk making a frame. After repeatedly ask ing for informatien, the workman succeeded in finishing it; and when completed, remarked that that was the first time he ever made a frame. The man should have been a good hand, for he had served his apprenticeship with his brother: and the speaker would like to know if such men should be placed along side of first-class workmen. Apprentices would idle Uteir time away, for they knew well enough they would get as much as a llrst-class workman. Mr. Dunnetty said that in the Treasury De partment where he worked, there were some who hardly served a year's apprenticeship, ar.d they were working as first-class workmen. Alter some further dlscnssion, the classifica tions were stricken out, and the rate of wages fixed at S3 per day. Mr. Hay moved that the demand for *3 be made from the 1st of May. Carried. On motion of Mr. Harman, a committee was appointed, consisting of workmen in each s hop to get signers to the constitution. Criminal Court, Judge Fisher.?Yesterday, after our report closed, John Farrell, indicted for an assault and battery, submitted, and was fined f 25. This case grew out of the defendaut driving a buggy across 7th street and the Avenue, and knocking down Com. Montgo mery ttnd a lady in his company. Julia Dean and Molly Matthews, indicted for keeping bawdy houses, submitted their cases, and the first named was fined 8300, and tne latter ?200. In passing the sentence, Judge Fisher remarked that from what he had ob served, lie had but little doubt that much of fhis business was owing to the landlord, who, for the take of lucre would rent their property to these parties, and he forthwith requested the attendance of the grand jury, and stated that he desired to suggest the propriety of Inquisi tion against another branch of the bawdy house business, viz: against the landlords. He had understood that in some parts of the city it is difficult for a respectable person to rent a bouse, because of the high rents which can b" got from this class of persons. They should strike at the root of the evil, the landlords, who, in many cases, were tar more to blame than Uie wcmen thstn.'elves, and h<> would have no compunctions in sentencing them. The Dw.kke of Ke&ekah was conferred upon twenty-five ladies last night by Harmo i j Lodge, No. 9, 1. O. O. F., at the lodge room i:i Odd Fellows' Hall, Last Washington, iu tiie presence of a large number of members. About e o'clock the ladies were introduced ar:d initiated into this honorary degree of Odd Fellowship for the wives of members of th<* Orders. After the ceremonies were over, and preliminaries suggested for an organization of tue listers of the Degree of Kebekah of East Washington, the company were invited to an :<dioinmg room, where a bountiful supply of ice i ream, cakes, Jcc., &c., was dispensed by a u mminee having charge. Altogether, the eve i..cg's entertainment was one of much pleasure, asd will not soon be lorgotten by the members cf No. l? and their many friends. 1<ai> for the Colonel !?T'other day, when v. ar news was rather scarce, and the news boys were slightly "stuck" on their merchan dise, one of them planted himself bv the Metro politan entrance and shouted, "Extra .Star' Oreat battle in Alabama!" so lustily tha'he speedily found a shoulder-strapped customer, vbo ran his eyte eagerly over the columns for ? hat battle in Alabama. He didn't find it. and ( ailed out, ?Ycu little rascal, I can't see any i attl;? here!" "No," answered the boy, as he widened the gap between himself and the of ficer, " I reckon you don't, and you never will s. e one if you loaf round this ere hotel!" ?veryb<dy laughed but the colonel, and the t* v went singing up the street. " Extra Star' ?. uther grtat battle in Alabama!" A> kkowledoment of a Donation.?Oapt. D.*A.

Dr. LIQHTHILL, from 34 St. Mark Place, New Tor*, Autnor of -'A Popular Treat is? on Deaf a ess," " Letters on Catarrb." Will make his third visit to WASHINGTON, On MONDAY, May 9th. and can be consulted at the Ebbitt Hopsb for own wsbk until Saturday evening, May 14th, on DEAFNESS, CATARRH, ?xd all the yariou^diseasee of the EAR, THROAT, AND AIR PASSAGES. From the Rev. Fred. 9. Jewell, Professor ?f State Normal School, Albany, N. Y. This may certify that I bare been, since 1814, subject to violent periodical attacks of catarrh, marked by a highly inflamed condition of the lining membranes of tbe cavities of the head, producing a most distressing species of bead ache for days at a time, wholly incapacitating me from business, and during the paroxysms confining me to the bod. In some instances tbe inflammation bas extended to the teeth, occa sioning toothache ; tr the threat, producing hoarseness and partial loss of voice ; and and twice It bas 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 symptoms; by stoppage ol tbe head, and, in the first stiages, by watery discharges from tbe nose, subsequently becoming acrid and yellow, and towards tbe close of the attack becoming bloody and purulent. I have tried medicines of almost every kind; external ap plications to the head, such as camphor, gin ger, hot bandages, and fomentations of hot vinegar; snuffs of some half a dozen kinds, and other catarrhal preparations, together with in ternal remedies, such as alteratives, cathartics and emetics. These bave 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 practically beyond either cure or material alleviation. Under theee circumstances I was led some five months ago, to make a trial of Dr. Light hill's treatment. His method at once approved itself to my judgment, as simple, philosophi cal, and likely to be effective. Notwithstand ing the disadvantages under which he labored, in dealing with a disease of such long stand ing, aggravated by nervous debility and dys pepsia, and constantly induced by the acci dents of my professional labor, I found the treatment reaching the disease as it had never been reached before, and producing such a modification and alleviation of its character, as I had supposed impossioie. I chronicle the results thus. Although I have been situated several times, so that I should formerly have believed a severe attack of my catarrh inevita ble, I bave escaped thus far; the symptoms of threatened attack have been very light, and have vielded to the remedies employed by Dr. Lightbill, without need of recourse to the old hot fermentations, or emetics; and the dischar ges from the head have resumed the original and natural condition. I count upon a com plete cure. That I bave been able, however, to obtain so material a relief is to me a cause of gratitude. In that alone, I am repaid for whatever the treatment may have cost me. I make this statement unsolicited, as a means of acknowledging my obligations to Dr. Light bill's method of treating catarrb, and with a view to aid any who may have suffered from that dipease, in forming a just opinion of its merits, and its probable utility in their own case. Fbbdk. S. Jewell, Prof. State Normal School. Albany, N. Y., March 14, 1864. Catarrh Cured. From Rtv. R. P. Jlussrll, Lynn, Mast. I have been much troubled with Catarrh of tbe worst type for some twenty years. It gradually grew worse, producing cough and hoarseness, destroying the sense of smell, and breaking down my general health to such a degree as to compel me to resign my pastorate, and suspend public speaking. I made diligent use of tbe useful remedies, such as snuffs of different kinds, nitrate of silver, tar water, olive tar, and inhalations, but without any salutary effects. Last sum mer I beard of Dr. Lightbill's successful mode of treating catarrh, visited him, and put my self under his treatment. 1 began immediate ly to improve, and this improvement baa gone on to the present time. My catarrb bas gradu ally melted away, my cough has disappeared, my voice haa become natural, and I am once more able to preach the blessed Gospel. Let me advise all troubled with catarrhal difficul ties to apply to Dr. Lightbill. P. R.
