V?. XXIV. WASHINGTON. D. C.. TUESDAY. AUGUST 16. 1864. . N2. 8.577 S. T??1860.?X Persons c/ pedentary babita troubled with weah ltw isMitod*. palpitation of the heart, lack ? appetite, diatreaa after eatiag, tor*id liver, aon ttipetfon, Ac., deserve to auffer if they will not try the celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS, which are bow recommended by the highest medi cal authorities, and warranted to produce an im midiatt beneficial effect. They are exceedingly I agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all other tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant is required. Tb?y purify, atrengten and invigorate, Tbey create a healthy appetite. They are an antidote to a change of water and diet. They overcome effeeta of dissipation and late hours. Thoy strengthen the system and enliven the wind. They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers Tbey purify the breath and acidity of the stomach. They cure Dyspepsia and Constipation, They enre Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera Morbus, They cure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head aebf. They make the veak strong, the languid bril liant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer. They are composed of the celebrated Calinaya bark, wintergreen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all preserved in perfectly pare St. Croix rum. For particulars, see circulars and testimonials around each bottle. Beware of imposters. Examine every bottle, gee that it has D. 8. Barnes' signature on our pri vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate engraving on side label. 8ee that our bottle is not refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy any person to match the taste or character of our goods. Any person pretending to sell Plantation Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an impostor* We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person imitating this bottle, or selling any other material therein, whether called PlantationJBitters or not, is a criminal under the U. 8. Law, and will be so prosecuted by us. We already have our eye on two parties re-filling our bottles, Ac., who will succeed in getting themselves into close quarters. The demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies, clergymen, merchants, Ac., is perfectly Incredible. The simple trial of a bottle is the evidence we pre ?ent of thoir worth and superioritv. They are sold by all rtFpectable druggists, grocers, physicians, hotels, saloons, steamboats and country stores. P. H. DRAKE k CO., angl eo3m 302 BROADWAY, N. Y. C. W. BOTELER. JNO. W. BOTELER C. W.

Mr. McCathran introduced a resolution ask ing the opinion of the Corporation Attorney whether it is not within the province of Coun cils to prevent the departure hence of steam boat excursions on tbe Sabbath day. Mr. Pepper opposed the passage of the reso lution. We had better bring the blue laws of Connecticut here at once, and re-enact them. He did,, not believe any body of men had a right to say how a man sliould employ his leisure on the Sabbath, or stop him from traveling on that day, or from going away from the city. Mr. McCathran spoke of the excursions on Sunday last, and wanted to know who was to blame for this desecration of the Sabbath, and who had the authority to put an end to it. He did not wish to prevent any one from leaving the city. His resolution did not contemplate that, but he did not think it was proper to al low these excursions to start out by steam or rail. He wanted to know who could prevent it. If we had the authority to stop it he want ed to know it, and if tbe Board was blameable, let tbe blame rest upon it. He, for one, did not wish to remain ignorant of his duty in the premises. If he was to blam9 he had to ans wer to bis constituents, and he believed the Councils had a right to prevent steamers going out on the Sabbath day. As lor the blue laws of Connecticut, be did not wish to Introduce them here, but he did think a proper respect should be paid the Sabbath. Mr. Pepper said he had been much edified by tbe Alderman's remarks, but be did not believe in tbe right of any oiie to say where he should go on the Sabbath day. It was a perfect hum bug to pass laws of this character for they could not be enforced. He was out upon the psalm einglng, hypocritical canting people who insisted upon marking out a line of con duct to be observed on the Sabbath. He denied tbe right of any one to Bay be should go to church unless he chose to do so. He remem bered when he was younger tbere was a class of young men who were models of propriety and always at their places (apparently) In church. But he had known them to sit about in a grog shop until the hour for church to leave out, when they would hurry to line the curb-stones and people would say: what models those young men are ? always at church. Mr. Gulick? Where were yon at such times 1 Mr. Pepper.?In the grog shop with them; | laughter] but no one ever gave me credit for church going. Tbe resolution failed to pass, the vote stand ing five to four. The Common Council bill to regulate the weight of bay, straw, Ac.; and the bill making appropriation lor the general and contingent expenses tor the year ending June, 11865, were referred. Resolutions of respect to the memory of Robert T. Knight, a member of tbe last Board of Common Council, were then adopted and the Board adjourned. Common Council.?'The Board was called to order by the President, Mr. Lloyd, all the members present except Messrs. Dudley, Kel ly, Skirving, Wilson and Walker. A communication was received from the Mayor, announcing his approval of the follow ing acts: Imposing taxes for the year 1864; for placing a flag center in the gntter on the north side of Massachusetts avenue, from 9th to loth streets west; for the improvement of gutters on the north side of H street north, from 11th to 13th streets, and on G street north, from loth to 12th streets; for repair of alley in Square 234; to supply a deficiency in the appropria tion for the repair of certain gutters in the 2d Ward; authorizing the extension of the sewer in 9th street west. The following were introduced and passed: By Mr. Lamer: to relay pavement in Square 254; to make assessment for paving the car riage way on the west front of Square 362. By Mr Owen: to revive tbe act to set curb and cause foot pavement to be laid on the east front of Square 214. The following were reported and passed: By Mr. Lamer: (improvements,) to set curb stone and cause tbe paving footway on the west side of 9th street west, from N to O streets; to set curb and cause footway to be paved on south front of Square 829; to repair the bridge at H street north, between 1st street east and North Capitol street; to grade and gravel I street south from 4th street east to the canal; to tTim and gravel B street soath from New Jersey avenue to 2d street east.

Joint resolution authorizing the Bab-hoard of trustees of the Third District to organise two additional primary schools in lien of on* sec ondary and one primary; referred. The annual appropriation bill was taken up a> the special order, and alter some few amendments bad been made it was passed. Tbe bill reported by Mr. Kelly at a former meeting to Increase tbe fees allowed to weigh ers of bay, straw, See., was taken up, and Mr. Lamer moved an amendment making tbe bill incperatlTe daring tbe present year. He ar gued tbat it wonld be unjust to increase com pensation at tbis time, as had it been known tbat tbe prices were to be increased the prices obtained at tbe secent sale would have been better. Tbe amendment was lost, and tbe bill was passed. The bill providing for the removal of the re mains of Major Charles L. Enfant, and the erection of a monument to his remains was called up, and, on motion of Mr. Peugh, it was (aid over for one week. A communication was received from the Commissioners of the Asylum, submitting for tbe approval ot the Board the following reso lution adopted at the meeting on the 3d in stant: Resolved, That all females, inmates of tbe Poor House, afllicted with venereal disease, sball be subjected to a weekly board ot 95; all unable or unwilling to pay said board, sball be required to give tbe name or names of the keeper or keepers of the house or houses at which they boarded, and if said keeper or keepers fail to pay said board, they shall be reported to tbe grand jury as keeping disreputable houses. Referred to the Asylum committee. Mr. Moore called the attention of the Board to the fact that at the last ixeeting a resolution was passed calling on the Register for infor mation as to the state of the finances, and no anwer had been received. He thought that more attention should be paid to such requests, and would suggest that the Secretary keep a record of such calls as were made. Tbe bill to place a gravel footway on 1st street west, from B street to Indiana avenue, reported upon adversely by the committee on improvements, was taken up, and tbe commit tee discharged. The bill amending the act organizing the Paid Fire Department was taken up, and Mr. Wright suggested tbat the salary of S(V*0 to the tillermau be stricken oat, and insert ?250. He referred to Mr. Peabody's communi cation, in which be Btates tbat it is not neces sary for a hook and ladder company to be tbe first on tbe ground; that the pulling down of bouses was the last resort; and therefore it was not necessary for a tiller man to be always on duty. He moved that tbe vote by which the salary was fixed at 8000 be reconsidered. Car. ried. Mr. Marche, with all due respect to Mr. Peabody's opinions, believed thafca book and ladder company could do as much service as an engine company. The ladders were used to assist tbe hose companies, and the hook and ladder companies had hitherto done much ser vice in saving life and property. Mr. Lamer argued that the tillerman was as necessary as tbe hostler: if these officers were at the engine the truck could run and the members might meet the apparatus at the fire. The question was taken on the amendment, and it was lost?veas 2, nays 13. On motion of Mr. Edmonston, the bill was laid ever until next meeting. Mr. Marche introduced a resolution author izing tbe sub-Board of School Trustees of the Third District to sell the school building on the comer of 3d street east and D street south, and erect a frame building on its site; which was referred. Mr. Peugh asked that the bill from tbe Alder men, to pave the carriageway on the north front of square '284, be taken up. Aiter some discussion it was laid over. Adjourned. Atfaibh ik OBOKQKTowTf.?Sunday, a par ty of drunken men from Arlington" Heights paid a visit to Georgetown, nnd created con siderable disturbance in the most frequented part of the town. The police succeeded in ar resting the party?James McKey, M. T. Cline, and Daniel Knight?each of whom was fined S10.?.r) by Justice Bnckey. A Rottgh Customer.?Michael O'Connell was arrested by Officer Lipscomb for disorderly conduct. On the way to the station-house, the officer not observing his prisoner carefully, re ceived a severe blow from him, which laid tbe officer senseless in the street. Shortly after, O'Connell was re-arrested and taken to the station by Officer Thomas. He tried to beat Officer Thomas, but failed, the officer apply, ing his club with good eifect. O'Connell was fined ?10 for disorderly conduct, and held to bail for court for the assault ^Disturbing the Street Cars. ? Timothy Shea ?id Daniel Conner, from the Navy Yard, cre ated a disturbance in a street car, being drunk. Tbe conductor tried to get them out, and fail ing, called policemen Boreman and Cunning ham. They resisted and fought tbe officers, but were secured and fined each 95 by Justice Buckey. These disturbances are unusual in Georgetown on the Sabbath. The Military Department.?Major R. M. Littler, (formerly of the 2d Iowa regiment,) Assistant Provost Marshal, and commandant of Forrest Hall Prison, is putting things in good condition in bis department. The powers of the position are more extensive than those ol former officers in charge there. The office of tbe Assistant Provost Marshal is located at the comer of High and Prospect streets, and is well arranged for the purposeb intended. The Forrest Hall Prison, the receptacle or bounty jumpers, de serter* and stragglers, and other military hard cases, also in charge of Major Littler, receives his particular attention. The Pest Adjutant, Lieut. S. C. Davis, of the Warren County Kifles, has bis office there as executive officer. Major Littler has established a day and night patrol of infantry and cavalry, with a deter mination of strictly enforcing tbe orders of the department to which he belongs, and the bene fits arising from the energy with which this new arrangement is carried out, begins already to be seen and felt. The town is cleared ot I stragglers and disorderly soldiers, and the police will have the benefit of efficient aid whenever required. As the orders of the pat rols are very strict, enlisted men should be sure to secure passes before visiting George town. The streets of Georgetown are undergoing a decided improvement, a large company of con trabands are employed in removing the dirt and filth from the carriage ways, and under the command of Capt. D. C. James, they will succeed in thoroughly cleansing the main streets. A Bit op Romaics.?Yesterday morning, a sailor, named Wm. Coleman, belonging to the steamer Don, entered the agency office of John F. Callan, Esq.. near the Bank of Washington, in company with a young lady, and asked for a minister or other party qualified to unite them in the bonds of matrimony. Mr. Callan, seeing tbe fix the tar was in, Immediately lent him all the assistance in his power by sending for the Rev.~U. Ward, who has an office in the building, and giving them the use of the office in which to celebrate the nuptials, and in a short time Mr. W. appeared, and the twain ' were made one according to the rites of the Methodist Protestant Church. After receiving the congratulations of those assembled, and securing the certificate, the parties left the office, at peace "with all the wcrld and the rest of mankind." The bride Is Miss Catherine Watson, of Cleve land, Illinois, and we understand her parents are in good circumstances. The groom says that they have known each other from their youth up. Coleman entered the navy two years since, and during this period has kept up a correspondence witb the lady, who about nine months since went to New York to see him. He then took her home to her parents, and told her to wait until he had served out his time, when he would make all right; but it appears that the lady thought the time was too long, and came here to see him a few days since, and the result was that they were mar ried yesterday, as above stated. Coleman says that he will send her home to her parents, and when his time is out he will serve the certificate (of marriage) on the old folks and claim her. Sitddsn Dbaths.?On Friday last, Jas. Con way, a saddler, went into Fletcher's tavern, at the comer of 94th and G streets, and while Bitting on a barrel he suddenly fell and died in a short time?before medical assistance could be procured. Coroner Woodward held an in Juest and "a verdict that his death was caused ?om apoplexy was rendered. On Saturday morning an unknown soldier was taken suddenly ill near the Circle Bar racks, in the First ward, and died In a few minutes. The surgeon in charge of tbe hospi tal took charge ol the body and as a soldier had died in a very, similar manner the previous night it was surmised that poison had been administered, and Sergt. Hnriy, of the police, was sent for. An inquest was held by Coroner Woodward. Dost mortem wo held but no traees of potson Was observed, add a verdict was rwdmd tha?Ksnth was caused by intemperance and exposure to the sen. telegraphic news. . FROM EUROPE. Political flewi I"nimportant ? Amtricav Difficulty ?with the Kgyptla* Btrtri. nrat. Farther Poikt, An*. 15.?The steamship North American, from Liverpool August 4. and Londonderry August 5, passed Farther Point at 6 30 p. m to-day. The political news Is almost a blank. The U.S. war steamer Niagara arrived at Liverpool on the 3d in?t.. and was received with a salute from the British war stsamec Majestic. The Alexandria correspondent of the Times gives the particulars of a quarrel between the American Consul and the Egyptian Govern ment. An American, in erecting a steam en gine, partially destroyed an aqueduct for sup plying the town with water. The Consul, on being applied to by the authorities, stopped the works, but subsequently permitted then to proceed. The Government then forcibly interfered, and ejected the workmen. The Consul hereupon demanded satisfaction for the insult to the American tlag. He refused to accede to the proposal that each party should send an engineer to inspect the alleged dam age, agreeing to abide by their jilnt decision* and threatened to strike his colors unless sat isfaction was given within twenty.four hour*. Accordingly, after that time elapsed tbe fla?c was hauled down, and a dispatch from the Government, which arrived almost immedi ately afterwards, was returned unopened. The Col suI telegraphed to Constantinople, and the matter rests. Of the general European news, there Is an utter absence of anything of moment. Tfce English Cabinet have all dispersed for the rcMon. Lord and Lady Palmerston had been engaged in the ceremony of cutting the first sod of a new railroad. Nothing additional had transpired as to the peace negotiations at Vienna. INDIAN HOSTILITIES. Indiscriminate Murder of Whites?All tha Tribes lor War* St. Loris, Aug. J5.?The Atchison Press has news from Little lilue that the Indians on. Sunday last, commenced an indiscriminate murder of the whites iu that section of the stage route. The station keepers and settlers are all leaving. The overland mail coaches have stopped running. The Kokotah Union of the 2d savs that everything in the nature of crops in the Mis souri valley, from St. Pierre to Sioux City, wa? ruined in the short space of two davs by grass hoppers. It says the supply of food for the subsistence of the inhabitants for the ensuing year must be imported. The Democrat's Fort Leavenworth despatch says the Indian outrages continue in Northern Kansas. The people in the northwestern coun ties have been murdered, their crops destroyed, and stock driven off. The evidence accumulates that all or nearly all the tribes on the plains are banded together for war. Gen. Blunt has issued orders that no arms or ammunition be sold them, and has notified all officers having authority over the Indiana not to permit them to leave their reservations for the West, and that such acts will be taken as a proof of their hostility, and treated ac cordingly. Rhode Island Election. Pbovidbkce, R. I., August 15 ?Rhode Island voted to-day upon three propositions to amend the constitution of the State, viz: To allow sol diers to vote; to extend suffrage to naturalized citizens who served in tbe war; and to abolish tbe registry tax.

Connecticut Election. Hartford, August 15.?The vote to-day in this State on the amendment allowing soldiers to vote was small. The returns indicate a large majority in favor of the soldiers.
