The major pen-, ral commanding says it is simply to assist civil authorities in ivamtsining tbelaw. M?).ir General Wood baa been romplimentarily addies?ed by the graad jury of Marion county, Mi-a, for Impartiality anil jaitle* in the e*ecu'icu of bis dnties, to which he replies it is tbe desire of the army that the civil authorities stonld be altogether entrusted with the e>ecution of the laws. | A special convention of delegates from thirtern Orthodox Lutheran synods in the Lulled States and Canada* met jeslerday evening in the Trinity Lutheran Church in Philadelphia. Over one hundred delegates are present, whom are a number of the tuo*t promtn? nt?lerpy of this denomination The object of ih?* convention is the consideration of proposinoiic for a basis of union between tbe various Orthodox Luthnau synods in ton conutrv, and the proceedings are looked to wita aousiderable interest by the denomination. , I'oth bons?s of tbe Virginia' Legislature were occupied yesterday in au animated discussion ot the bills amending tbe stay-lawThe House bill, whi.-h propose,! to (five <l??b'ors six months more time, tney to pay interest on suspended incebteduess, was rejected by ten majority.

StNATB?Yesterday afternoon, the bill regola u g tbe ele- -f\e fr nchise in the District oi Columbia he np tinder consideration ? Mr. Sprague said that the South r??re?ent?d aristocracy, tb* North < ??ocracy. Let no Ob?tacle stand in the way .,i .-a.,,?i,? iut- p^^pie from a more desperate strnit^le than had yet b*en witnessed. Mr HucWalew did not consider that voting a? the amendment was voting on the question of the extension of suffrage. He was opposed to extending ?he electoral system here or elsewhere, it on ght rather to be restricted. As& choice between it and the counter proposition he would vote tor the amendment. Mr DooHuIh stdd the amet>dtovnt opened a very grave question,' upon which the ablest minds were divided, but upon wnich thev were otUiett noon to votj?. He would vote :ijr\iu-t the atueiidmeut. He had arrived nt th? conclusion tha^lhe true fouuda'ion upon which to rest suffrage was the family?the head of the tnmily. We were Caucasian#. Hi-f?rv. ednc-?t|?n. and experience taught tliai iii-tmen ot thnr rare were competent The hi.- ory ol <>iher races showed that they were incompetent When he was told that the Indian <?r the African was competent, he was told v h it lie could not bflieve, though some few ot ihe latter might be. It would b- a bur1^',n-1 itpon republican Institutions. To s?y thai hesH who h'ld laely been slaves wre competent was. he though*, contrary to reason. Tiieie were exceptions, but no law could be lormed to recogjuiz* Uiem. >o with the Chinese in California and elsewhere. Here, where all the negroes conld flock from the Setttberu Suites, it was preposterous to talk of It. At the lute election this issue was avoided everywhere, with the exception, perhaps, of Massachusetts. To say. then, thai the people weie in favor of it was folly. He learned that il was proposed to offer an amendment attaching a qualification. He might support such a measure, but he could not support either this bill or tbe amendment. Mr. Pomeroy was tor this measure earnestly and for that reason he would vote against the amendment, tx lievir.g that it was merely Intended to defeat tbe bill. The yeas and nays were theu taken wii tbe amendment of Mr. Cowau?9 vowog in tavor of 1', to 37 against. Mr. I>ixon ottered tbe following am?ndm?nt. to come at tho end ot the first section ot the bill reported by tbe eommitte<e. I'rvridtd, That no person who bae not here, tofore toted in this District ^trail toe permuted to vote unless he shall be able, at the time of offering the vote, to read, and also to wnre his owu ntitne Mr. Dixon briefly s?nport?d his ameudrmnt. and called the yeas and nays. Mr. Hendricks was not in favor of placing ?ulVrttge on that basis, but as a lesser ev;l he 1 considered it his duty to vote for it ^ Mr Sanlsburv believed that the never satis- j fed abolitiwn element wonld flood this District wi*h negroes so as to get control ol the corpo- I ration government. With a view to evade :is far as possible this catastrophe he had thought of voting lor the amendment of Mr Cowan, ] but that it included the negro women He con Id not vote lor the proposition of the Sen- i ator from Connecticut. [Mr. lMxon.1" What in- ' telligence was implied in the ability to read and write a tr.nn's name ? The power given to Congress was not to set np a mortal government in the District of Columbia. If Congress sustained tbe same relation to this District as the Legislature of a State to its people, wonld anv I<e?i*lnture give similar rights to the ?i? gro race if there was -och a majority of the wbite- against it? Senators la snch eases would not vote fur It nnlees they intended to make political martyrs ol themselves They were the legislature'of the District of Columbia, but would not confirm their action to the will of the people, endeavoring rather to set op a model for the States to follow. He denied that, as alleged, the Southern States would follow that example Nothing could so sting a proud soul as dishonor, and he trusted that no son of a Sou'bem State would so degrade himself as to accept a seat here on such terms. As to tbe equality ot races in the sight of God. and the claim ot the Senator from Maine, (Mr. Morrill,) that all who denied it ucL were the case tnen all those wboin he revered were mtidels? nay, the author of the Pentateuch was an infldel. If tbe Senator believul the Bible be believed they were descendants of Ham, and. therefore, set aside as servants. He would refer hint to th#original for the term "sen ant or servant*;" he would find thai it meant -a slave of slaves," or "a slave forever." Ami the same with the correspond- ! ing word in Greek. Did a?iy Senator believe that gi\ iug tbe right uf suffrage to the blacks i l this District would result In any improvement of us Oovernment, or in ib* happiness of rlie people I Was there any great wisdom recently discovered in thes? people.' If so, if was a wonderful discovery, lude^d He would not 1 occupy tbe time of the Senate further, hut wotiKI content himself with simply voting aft m?-i the amendment.

Address ( PrnMoi eirrrtt. The regular monthly meering of the Board of Diryors ol the Baltimore aud Ohio ttiilroad Company took pthce yesterday at Oamdea Station, j. W flamu, . hnkenu in the cbair. After tbe organization of the lizard, tin* President withdrew, calling Jonu Siiear N icbols, Esq , to the chair. On motion, the Board then proceeded to the election of i be Fresideut, wlieu it wu found

thai John W. Garrett, h?<|, wu uauimuuilT elected President of tfce Company for the ?nsinng year Mr Oarrett, upon taking tbe chair,addregsed the Board, stating for funeral luforuiati jn the leading acts, the progress of the work?, nud the deveiopements of the policy of tae Company and ol its prospects. He said tba! the^ntire nne irotu Baltimore to Piedmont (a distance of 2ne mile*) will be completed with a superior double track dorian the next year It it enp?*;ted the blading of th* tunnel of Pom* ui Kocks will b? through at an early day, ami that, t>y August noxt.the double tra 'k can be la d through this tnnnel. and the exposed line upon tb* banks o! the canal at this point be atanaoued. The rock from tbw excavation, which Is exceedingly tmrd and durable, i* broken chiefly by an improved steam balla-t crush* r. and is u?ed in talla-uing the Dew second track. I o avoid the sharp curve near the canai at Williams' Point, west ol the iuuoei described, it will be necessary to contract an additional* tunnel. Preparations are being made to com tnence this work, and large forces will bplaced at all pom's along the (me of th? canal as soon as the navigation thereon ceases. Since the destruction of the wooden and other bridge* upon its line during the war twelve first-class iron bridges, aggregating 3,4.5 feet. with ?7 spans, varying from 78 to '(? feet ill length and of very costly character have been built at the.Mount Clare workshop*' placed upon superior masonry, and are now in successlul use. At. the clitse of rbe war the Winchester and Potomac Kailroad Company was entirely without equipment, without m?an; to complete its road Into Winchester, or ability to work its line. I pon the solicitation of that company and in order to aid it and the people of Winchester aud the Valley of Virginia, this Com* pany uudertook the reconstruction of its bridge-, and the construction of the r.?ad fro Stevenson's .station to W incbester. and to tun ply buildings essential for the "onyenience of lis business. It arranged also vnth that com pany to supply the requisite machinery an* work that road. ry and Much work has been done npon the Wash ingtou Couuty Kailroad, leading from the Main Stem at Weaverton to Hagerstown-a distance of twenty, three miles. Ibis Company has thus far contributed to the payment lor the work upon that road SIM'.i Uu. I am gratified to state, upon informa lion recei ved from the officers ol that Couipany, that they confidently expect tnat the road will be opened prior to the dedication of tne National t.emetery at Antieutm. 011 the 17th of September next. As this road passe-, tnronzh that classic battle ground, it is anticipated tnat its large facilities, in connection with the Baltimne and Ohio Koad, will enable the great . oncourse expected on that interesting occaik n to reach the Cemetery with convenience atid comfort. The work npon the Pittsbnrg k. ConneJsville Kailroad has been gradually pushed forward, and the heaviest portion of it?the Sand Patch 1 unnel, through the summit of the Alleghanies?w well advanced towards completion Hut lor the delays which a vexations and unwarrantable litigation has caused, the direct communication by rail, between Baltimore aud 1 itisburg, would now be m actual operation. r The Company's engineers bate located two routes lrom the P.wnt of Kocks to Wtsbington? one , .? Kiadenebur;-, and the second directly into the city of Washington. By the latt-r ronte th. distance will be bat \i miles being a reduction of the distance, compared with that by 1 he K, lay Hon^ of p. miles the la ter tocauoa was made by the solic.taUon ol hi? H 'lior the Mfiyor. and other leaJiur citizen-ol Washington. liming its last s^'-ion. Congress refined to authorize any additional lm^s 0f road frotc \\ ii-hington to Baltimore, and. af er thomn-n examination, the Committee ou the District of ( oimuhia recommended tb"? passage of an act in .Inly last, whtok became a law on the jjth of that month, autlionziug the entrance ot the Metropolitan Branch into the District of Columbia. and to the city of Washington, under ar> agreement to be made with thai city. The authorities of Washington, appeared desirous that the more direct route should be selected u stei d Of that Her Kladensburr, and thetr councils have now this subject under consideration. If they adopt satisfactory legislation, the Mayor of That city has been a^sureo, in ad corasnce with the views entertained by this board, that ike hi** which they prefer pfeall bp Morvc Much eflort has been made by parties connected with rival interests to arou.-e prejudices against the Baltimore and Ohio Katfrod Company among the citizens of Washington, by the grossest misrepresentations and the most positive misstatements. I am very sure that 1 represent the unanimous sentiment of this Board and 01 this community in stating, as 1 Have done on other occasious.when auoh statements have met universal approval, that not the slightest jealousy exists on the par'of Baltimore as regard* the progress of the city ol V, ashington Our interests are common, and m this connection it Is clearly double to Washington that Baltimore should also ad\nnce to such a point of commercial importance as shall make it as their most convenient and economical commercial centre npon the coast?the leading point lor their business intercourse In effect, Washington is so closely allied in every form with this comiuauilv, that it is and will continue to be necessarily identilied largely in business and commercial progress. As regards tne Baltimore and Ohio road, its labors have been as an here are aware lor the m'erests of Washington, as one of its' two great and important termini for the main stem and branches, and for then- connections It the desire to misrepresent this company it is as astonishing how mischievous to the interests of \* ashington have been those parties who have published articles in that cny alleging it to be solely dependent for Its support npon a single mismanaged railway." That great city is dependent upon no single line. Few commerctnl seats of great populations have more advantages lor the economical and convenient transportation ot supplies than the city of Washington. It has draining iertile regions?the Chesapeake and Ohio canal?extending it to the interior 1?4 miles: a work which has cost more than twenty millions of dollars, and which contributes ail it* advantages to that city and her sister cities of the District. It has the noble Potomac river, presenting a navigauou unexcelled bv aav river on the continent?a river by which it lias not only easy and cheap commnnicatiou with a large portion of Virginia and Maryland, but by which it enjoy s the most economical possible onilet to the Chesapeake, and the cheapest practicable navigation to all the cities 01 tW seacmst and abroad. It ha* also the Wash, ingtou and Alexandria railroad, coaneoting with the Orange aud Alexandria,and, through tnat Important road, with all the net-work of railways tamifylug through the State of Vir. ginia and the South. It possesses flrst-claas steamers running to Aquia Creek, at which point they connect with the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac railroad, and thus offer another superior and excellent line of communicatlou with Uichmond ami the South. As to Its road betwixt Baltimore and Washingtnn, the thonsauds who constantly pass npon its line with speed, regularity and safety, can best atirst regarding its management. Fourteen first class passe.'.ger trains per day pars betwixt the cities of Washington and Baltimore, aQordlng every character of accommodation at moderatear.d equitable c U arises jor passengers; and treigh' trains are furnished constantly to any extent they may he deoired at a taiitl which will compart* favorably with the tariffs of roads of similar length in any par of the United Slates. As it is very clear that, with the faet that the present double tra^k road between Baltimore and Washington affords abundant facilities for more than twenty times the amount of traus portation now Offering or to be obtained for th route, rtiat no public lateresr require* a par el. lei lin* to he bunt, it isaMII believed, as grva public interests will be sarved by the construc lion of ih? direct line from Washington u> the Point of Bocks, that Congress will m^iutam the views heretofore hMd, by refusing it* au rbonty for each lines, and continn* thus to en courage the large expenditure of in on y br this Compsny required lo complete the Metro, pofitan Branch. Duriag the past niae months a large porttoa of the heaviest work npon thin im? at P irr's Kldge bus been executed. The hue has also beeu located, and arran rem eats perfected, should tae authorities of Washington legislate satisfactorily lor th? entrance ot the road info ifcat city, to cotnawaw there at once. and I'TOffftii* ihe work with rapidity, #o as to Jiwn till? 11op from Washington to Bocktille for local and other purpose* at tbe earliest prtcicable period. It ia also preparing to ctDnnin at various other points npon tbe line, so tbat the entire work can bo vigorously proMcatMl. By ibe completion of ihe Pittsburg and Steuben vilie Road, in connection with tbe Steuben III# and Indiana Railroad, tbe Pennsylvania Raliroad Companr ba* been enabled to reduce itadistance trom Baltimore to Cincinnati to 64? miles, and from Washington to Cincinnati tofcK mile*. Tbe distance of onr line viaGrafton and Parkersbnrg, from Baltimore to Cincinnati, is y<t miles, and from Cincinnati to Washington, via tbe Kelay Hoose. tW- miW. It will be thus seen that tbe rout* via the Marietta and Cincinnati Road is ?i miles less to Baltimore, and 79 miles less to Washington Ihsn by tb# shortest line of the Pennsylvania Kaiiroad. It has been determined by the Marietta and Cincinnati and Baltimore and Ohio Roads to mTail fully of these advantages, by Establishing, during the next season, first-class independent trains, to run through inauch time as cannot fail to command tha: business for this superior route, I'pon tbe completion of The Metropolitan Branch, the advantage* of this route to Washington, as compared with that by rhe Pennsylvania Road, will be increased to 121 miles.

Charge t# the f>rand Jury. On the opening of tbe l>ecemt>er terra of the Criminal Court, Judge Fisher, who is nolding tbe present term, delivered the following excellent charge to the Grand Jury Gentlemen ol the <irand Jury. In conformity to an immemorial usage, both in tbis country and in lhat from which we have derived our system of jurispruoence, and in obedience to the laws enacted by that body in which our Federal Constitution baa ves'ed tbe power to rxercue exclusive legislation over this District, yon have appeared here to-day to take the oath ot office and enter upon tbe dutcharge of your duties as conservators jf the pnblic peace and morals ot this community. You have taken that oatb. and in bo doing have called God to witness that you will diligently inquire and true presentment make of all sack matters aud things as shall be given you iu charge: to keep secret the counsel ot the Government, your lellows, and your own: to pr? sent no man for envy, hatred, or malice; and to Have no man unpreseuted for lote, fear, favor, affection, reward or the hope thereof: all which you are to do according to tbe very best of yonr knowledge and understanding. Tbe office which yon have assumed is a solemn and important one. it has been very properly observed by an able jnrist. that, in the annals ot the world, there cannot be fouud an institution ?o well tltted 'for avoiding abusts, whicb might, otherwise, arise troin rigor, trom malice, Irom negligence, or trora partiality in tbe punisbmrut ol crimee. No matter where the supreme authorry is lodged, it is easily seen that, unless a tribunal, removed from popular iniiueuve on the oue band, and executive dictation on the other, is stationed between the prosecuting power and th* citizen, the latter will be subject to whatever a.-saults, mistaken /.eal or de^berau- spite mity choose to subject hi in to. Whilst ibis was doubtless the great object aud purpose f.?r which grand juries were instituted by our ancestors, who bad tell the hard oppressions of kingly power,yet r. must, by no meant, be supposeo that this admirable institution was iutended, in any measure, to sanction immunity from puni-brm iy. lor crime when actually committed, and '.He nffeuder ascertained. It is uot lets the duty of the grand )ury to conserve and protect the peace and morals and health ol the public, than it i.s to sbield the ludividual trcm toe wrongs and abases which malice or spite might intiict upon bun. i.ach oue of your body, from this time until ano'ber w of grand jurors shall have be^n returned and empauueivi^ is a conservator of the public peace and health and morals. So Is yonr District Attorney and so is your Judge, by virtue of the offices which w# hold: and as such, each otieof us is bound to notice and bring to ihe attention ot the Oritnd Inquest every matter wblcb. in our knowledge, may occur in tbis District, violative of onr social order, health or morals. Should any on# of you, of your own knowledge, be aware ol tha ta<^ tha any crime or misdemeauorhaa been committal within the limita of this District yon will communicate the tai l to your teilows In conncil. f^o, if 1, or the District Attorney, should be cognizant of any matter violative at the law, we are, equally, bound to give it properly tato your charge. \ our office will be found to be no sinecure. Yonr immediate predecessors in their iQvestigations, passed upon nearly nine hundred cafes, and. in all probability, you may be called upon to examine quite as many. In all oat-es where the parties accused have not been held nuder recognisance lor their appearance to this Court or committed to prison in default of bail?that is to say, in ali casts, where you shall act, in the first instance, without complaint fearing been previously made to a committing magistrate, y#u v?ill briag th# matter to the attention of the Court and the District Attorney, by bills of presentment, a form of which, should yon re. quire It, will be given yon by tbe cl#rk. In cases brought beiore you on complaint made be tore a committing magistrate, that is to aay. cases arising upon recognizances and commitments, bills of indictment will be prepared and sent to yonr chamber bv the District Attorney or his deputy, with the names ol the witnesses swora in each case, endorsed thereon and marked "sworn." You w.ll call and examiue those witnesses, and if upon that eaamiuadon you shall be satisfied that there is probable cause for the accusation, a reasonal-ls ground lor the complaint preferred, vou will then have your foreman endorse ihe woids. ' a irue /.?//.*' thereon, and his own sigautnre. and return the result ol your day a labor at the close ol each dally session. Should you not be sans fled of such reasonable ground of complaint. but believe that tb# case is th# offspring of oppression or malice, or th# machination of lalsehood and fraud, you will, k?r the words "a true bill."sabstitnt* tbe word "ignorami;- " and \pith yonr other work. TheGrand Jtury is not, as somepeople vainly suppose, an irresponsible inquisition, with uu> limited powers and jurisdiction, under the shelter of whose secret operations private malice or political animosity may harrass and persecute tbe thoughtless or tbe unwary, the ignorant or tb# unfortunate. The wicked and guilty offenders against law are the only objects after whom they are to make diligent inquisition. Their duties are coatined, in the main, to the in vesugauon ot such matters as may be given them in charge by the Oonrt or preferred by the proeecutingofllcer. or of these which their own immediate personal knowledge and observation may authorize them to present in their official capacity. You will, therefore, gentlemen, regard with suspicion all anonymous communications, as well a* those special and frequently petty complaints which could as well have been, and onght to have heen. made, in the first instance, before tho?e primary tribunals established for that purpose, which are always open to the complaints of tbe in jnred or oppressed, and in which the accused may be confronted bv the witnesses against bim, and be put in a po? ti >n that will enable him to prepare lor his defence There are, bowever, some matters of general public importance and notoriety which, trom their very nature, operate ou the enure community and of the injurious effect of which the immediate victims are loo often naoonscibue, isometimes willingly so,) or too al? lured by their icious fascinations, or too sensitive to sham# to mak# special complaint against. For sack matters, it is yonr duty to mak# honest and thorough inqnisiUou.
