Persons of sedentary habits troubled with weak ne a, lassitude, palpitation of the heart, lack o appetite, distress after eating, torpid liTSr, con stipation, &e.. deserve to suffer if they will not try the celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS, which are now recommended by the highest m?di> eal authorities, and warranted to produee an iw? mtdiais beneficial effect. They are exceedingly agreeable, perfectly pure, and- must supercede all ether tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant is required. , They parify, strengten and invigorate. They create a healthy appetite. They are an antidote to a change of water and diet. They overcome effects of dissipation and late hours. They strengthen the system and enliven the Kind. They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers They purify the breath and acidity of the stomach. They cure Dyspepsia and Constipation, They cure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera Morbus. They eure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head ache. They make the weak strong, the languid bril liant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer. They are composed of the celebrated Calisaya bark, wintergrcen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all preserved in perfectly pure Bt. Croix rum.

An adjourned meeting of the Board was held last night, all the members present except Messrs. Gulick, Lloyd, Morgan, Pep per and Utermehle. Tne chair, Mr. Brown, laid before the Board a communication from the Mayor, announcing the approval of the bill to grade and gravel K street south, from 4th street east to the canal; bill to take up and relay the gutter on the north aide of K street, between 12th and 13th west; bill tc grade and gravel K street south, from 3d to 7th west, and bill to erect a horse-rack in the Northern Market-house. Also a commanir cation nominating William .T. Herbert, Peter GallantfJobn G. Robinson, William Douglass and Sanrael B. Beyer for inspectors and meas urers of lumber. Referred to committee on po lice. Also a communication enclosing a com munication from the city surveyor, relative to the reassessment of the cost of constructing a sewer in the alley in Square No. 431, to connect with the sewer on Kh street west. The cost is fixed at SL.tK.iO. Referred to committee on im provements Mr. Plant presented a communication from Dr. Thomas Holmes, embalmer, in answer to the communication of Mrs. Bannerman and others complaining of the establishment of said Holmes as a nuisance. He denies that his place can be considered a nuisance. He has been prosecuting this business ever since the begin ning of the war, at different places, and was never before complained of, and he asks a com mittee to investigate the subject, as be is desi rous of obeying the laws, and he never uses his business so as to make it a cause of objec tion. He further says there are a number of other embalming establishments, and all near dwellings, and he believes he has been selected as an object of reprobation through some sinis ter feeling. The communication was referred to the spe cial committee, consisting of Messrs. Noyes, McCathran and Barr, to whom the petition of Mrs. Bannerman was referred. Mr. Barr presented the petition of John L. Brown, and it was referred to the committee of improvements without reading. Mr. Noyes presented the following petition of George Lea: To the Honorable the Board of Aldermen and the Board of Common Council of the City of Washington:?Your petitioner, who is the pro prietor of Canterbury Hall, having read a pe tition published in the proceeding of Councils at their last meeting, from Mr. Fitz Simmons, as proprietor of a music hall known as the Va rieties, asking for an abatement of taxes on the aforesaid Varieties, on account of change of management, begs to offer to your honorable body an objection to such petition, unless others are favored likewise. In the first place, your petitioner has good and sufficient reason for believing that the sale of said Varieties was made in order that the former proprietors might evade the debts of the establishment, and is therefore a sham sale. Your petitioner believes that he can pro duce suitable evidence to substantiate this opinion; therefore, if your honorable body grants the prayer of Mr. Fitz Simmons, your petitioner will claim, injustice to himself, the abatement of a like sum from his taxes, al though he is perfectly willing to pay the de mands of your honorable body, but thinks it nnjust that flesh should be made of one and fish of the other. Respectfully, George Lba. Washington, D. C., Aug. 20,la04. Referred to committee on finance. Mr. Barr, from the committee on police, re ported adversely upon the nomination of Jos. L. Williamson for police constable of the Sec ond Ward; and the nomination was not con firmed. Also, from the same committee, made a similar report upon the nomination of Chas. Hurdle for police constable of the Third Ward. Mr. Lewis desired to know upon what ground the committee asked the rejection of this nomi nation, and the Chair (Mr. Brown) said he also would like to know the ground of objec tion. Mr. Barr stated that when the nominations were first received by the committee they made inquiries as to bow the nomination would suit the people of each ward. It was some time before they could get an expression as to this case officially, and he went among the people of the ward and found scarcely one in favor of this nomination. The ground of objection was a constant neglect of duty, and also that tne nominee kept a restaurant, which took up nearly all his time and attention. Mr. Barr further stated that if he was not much mistaken he thought there was a law prohibiting police constables from engaging m any other business. The Chair stated that the Third Ward dele gation had looked into the matter of the fitness of this officer, and as the Mayor had re-ap pointed him after a trial of one or two years the ward delegation were of the opinion that he onght to be confirmed, and therefore he would call the yeas and nays upon the nomination. Mr. Lewis said before the yeas and nays were c alled be would ask that the further considera tion of the subject be laid over one week. The Chair would unite in their request as there was barely a quorum present Mr. Canfield stated that he was Informed by the Chief of Police that Mr. Hurdle had not performed his duty fully. He was required to report daily and sometimes would not do so for two or three days. Besides he had been as signed to special duty at the Market House and it was his duty to be there at an early hour, whereas it was after 10 or 11 o'clock before he got there. The subject was postponed until next meeting. Mr. Barr, from committee on canals, to which had been referred a large number of sugges tions, relative to cleansing the Washington Canal, introduced a bill authorizing the Mayor to employ an Engineer who shall examine the several plans proposed and report the best one. To carry out the law 81,500 Is appropriated. The bill was read three times and passed. The bills from the Board of Common Council, to set the curbstones and pave the footway ou the west side of 9th street west, from N to O streets north, and the bill to pay for paving the carriageway on 9th street west, from Pennsyl vania avenue to B street north, were referred. The bill from the same Board, for repairing and painting the gutters and roof of the Wash ington Asylum, was pajsed. The Chair asked leave to withdraw ?ertain papers on the files of the Board relative to the erection of a new school house in the northern part of the city, with a view to their reference to the committee on schools in the Board of Common Conncil, who were now considering the matter. Permission was granted. Mr. Plant introduced a resolution authorizing the President of the Board to purchase a new carpet for the Aldermen's Chamber; to have the desks cleaned and varnished, and to fit up the room adjoining the Aldermen's Chamber aa a committee room for the Board, and for the purpose of having cases put up in order that the archives of the Board may be properly filed away and preserved. The resolution was adopted. Mr. Barr, on behalf of the 2d and 31 Ward delegations, to whom had been referred the bill to trim and gravel New York avenne, from 9th to 15th streets west, asked to be discharged from Its further consideration. So ordered, and the bill was laid on the table. Mr. Turton, from the committee on drainage, reported favorably upon the bill authorizing the construction of a sewer in Square No. 190, and it was passed. Mr. Canfield introduced a resolution author izing the secretary to have fifty copies of the journal of the last Councils printed for the use of members of the Board. Adopted. Adjourned. Affairs ih Georgetown.?Highway Rob lery Case.?Yesterday morning, the case of the United States against Daniel O'Brian, James Coleman, Wm. Young, and William Garrett, charged with robbiag a soldier named Owen McGuire, of $200, on the 18th Inst., was taken up for trial by Justice Bnckey. Eight wit nesses were summoned. It was proven that Garrett, Young, and Coleman were with the complainant on that day. The complainant i was very drunk, and was taken by them to a lane west of the College pond, which leads to Johnson's slaughter house. They were seen lying in the grass there with the soldier. No one saw either take the money, but Yonngtold officer Hurdle that Garrett took it, and gave him a portion of It Coleman being with the party is charged with them. Coleman was not present at the trial, but is said to have left the District The bond wbieh be gave for hi? further hearing goes to court, and his security, Wm. Fowler, has gone after him to save him self from the enforcement of the bond. There being no evidence against O'Brian, he was dis missed. Young and Garrett were held to bail in *500 each to appear at court. Arretted.?Chapman Dele, a boy of K years of age, was arrested Monday eVettlng upon the charge of t he robbery of a-soldier named Dan'l W Uey.

Georgbtown Public Schools.?The Board of Guardians is preparing to open the ensuing scholastic year under more favorable auspices than at any time since the establishment of the schools. Among the first acta for the coming year was to increase the salaries of the teachers, -which a more liberal fund, now under its con trol by act of Congress, enables it to do, and by a most praiseworthy and unanimous appropri ation by the Councils for the purpose, the Board has just ordered from Boston, entire sets of new furniture, of the most approved make, for the four old schools, the old break-back desks heretofore used having been there eince long before the oldest pupd rand perhaps teacher) was born. The new schools, opened last year on High street, were thus furnished -when opened. In addition to these improvements, great changes for the better have been made in the school house on Montgomery street. Those -who are in the habit of attending the interesting public exercises there will learn with pleasure that the inconvenient steps, used as a gallery when the building was a church, have been removed and the entire floor levelled, and that the inconvenient, narrow stairway leading to the upper rooms have been removed and an entrance made from an outside portico Into each separate school, so that each school can be approached without passing through and dis turbing the other. The Potcmac water has been brought into each room, in both houses, and the rooms furnished with every desirable facility for personal neatness, to which increased atten tion will hereafter be paid, and the rooms are now being thoroughly cleaned and white washed, so that they will compare favorably with any school room, public or private, in the District, and such an opportunity for receiving the mo6t thorough instruction in useful knowl edge has never before been presented to the people of the Town, which they will no doubt, avail themsplves of by an early application to Mr. C. W. Magee, who will grant permits to those entitled to them, through, which, if the applicant is qualified, they can go directly into the grammar schools, both of which are now supplied with most efficient teachers. Those in the schools at the close of the last tprm. I understand, do not need permits, but if they are not present or otherwise heard from on or before the first Monday (5th) of Septem ber, they are liable to be shut out by new comers. As these schools increase in efficiency do prejudices give way, and they are fast assu ming, in fact have assumed, a position which commands the respect and support of our best citizens, and give hope of the near approach of the time when, as it is now in more favored places, children will be drawn into these schools by reason of their efficiency in impart ing substantial, practical and useful knowl edge. Each house is furnished with a fine melo deon, the property of the schools by private subscription, and Prof. Daniel will continue to teach music the coming year; and the whole establishment is commended to public confi dence and support. It might be well to state that, under a late law of Congress, every one having the care or control ot children of suitable school age is obliged to send them to some school for at least twelve weeks in each year, under a penalty of not over twenty dollars, which will probably make it necessary to open new schools. H. An Exciting Scbnk.?An Officer Cowhidet a Citizen.?A considerable excitement was occa sioned at the ferry steamboat wharf this morn ing as the nine o'clock boat was leavingtheslip, by an assault on the part of Capt. William M. Gwynne, A. D. C., on General Slough's staff, upon the person of Mr. L. Palmer, lately a liquer merchant on King street. Capt. G. used a cowhide in the assault until the contest came to close quarters, when blows ensued, and re sulted in Mr. Palmer's being overpowered. The above is as we have it from an eye witness. We learn that the affair grew out of certain charges which Palmer had preferred against Captain Gwynne, and which charges were brought before a Court of Inquiry, convened at the Captain's request. Mr. Palmer gave in his testimony yesterday, and as we are in formed by one of the officers comprising the Court, failed to substantiate the charges. This morning Capt. G. procured a cowhide and start ed in quest of Mr. P., and finding him on board the boat, about to proceed to Washington, to attend as a witness at a Court Martial, the above scene ensued.?Alexandria Journal, 23d.
