The friends of the hill i.a>e:i number of reasons tor the passage of this bill, among others, contending that the 1 "1**!'v!_?^""1 ?n was not in accordance wrh the ibarter, and that the charter tiad not IxpfrMj formally accepted. It won Id *eem. from what we heard of the proceedings of Saturday's meeting, that since ne meeting first noticed there has been consid. ei .mie change of opinion, for on Saturday the corporator* formally accepted the charter for ili? first time. Alter considerable conversaM.. al debate as {o whether the charter had be- i compned with, and the propriety of ha v. ii - gentlemen at the head of the institution, th?- % t.ended to revise the charter, with a view to suggesting amendments to Congress, and ai.*o to request Congress to select male trustees for the institution. A re-oln'ion was adopted declaring that a man and his wifecould not sit upon the board at the same time. It was stated during the meeting that the proc??-d? of the Mains and Massachusetts tables at tile tair. which have been withheld since the lair, will te paid sver shortly. 1 he lad es do not propose, in recommending - appointment at male trustees, to give uu the nianagnment themselves, but to attend to the domes'ie maiagement of the Home, the tri sfees to at :te head of it. As all parties '"em now to havecome to a good understand, inc. it is to i* toped that the "Home"' will enter upon a longcareer of usefulness. Orimwo or in* Skatiho Pown. ?

Ad addre - was delivered by Mr. Wra H riagett. the pre?ilent of the club, urging the mrnibers to do all in their power to carry out tb? rules and regulations, in order that the pond might be maJe a popular place of resort duniig the skating season. The refreshment -aloon. under Meisrs.

The lanterns and rr-flectow were put in position today. and hereafter the pond will be kept open during the afternson and evening. Judging from rue opening lay, the Washington skating park is destined 'jo be a decided success, and no doubt will be patronized by the elite of the city The officers and members seem deter, mined to do all in itoeir power to provide every convenience and have the place properly eared for. m Nkw Mail A?ras?bmki(T.?On Tuesday morning next the tew postal railway cars will be put on the route Irom the city of Washing, ton to Kichmond, Va., via Aquia creek.
