A scene took place in a boarding and lodging bouse on Pennsylvania avenue, on Wednesday night last, which occasioned great excitement among the octapunts of the houw. It aeeiis that about one o'clock yesterday morning a hack containing two ladles drove ?p to the bouse indicated, and the occupants hastily alighted and rang the door bell excitedly, to which prompt attendance was given by the ser vant. and a request oa the part of the visitors to see the madam. The ladies proceeded to the sitting-room, up stairs, and the housekeeper, who was ill in Ded, was aroused, and in due time appetfted on the scene. One of the vis - tors inquired if there was a gentleman named Mr. stopping there. The landlady replied affirmatively, adding that he and bis wife had been occupying a room there for several day*. First lad v.?"His wife! I am his wite 1" Landlady.?"That cannot be; he engaged t ?e room for himself and wife, and she claim* to he such. Thev are now in their room, and I have a note from him enclosing his rent for the room and giving directions how to fnrnish it." (Pro duces the note, with full directions a* to huw his wife desired to have the room arranged, &e., the .writing of which she at once recog nized.) First lady "I wish to be show;ii to h!s room; lie is my husband and has no business here with any woman but myself." Landlady.?"Oh, this will not do. I am wu rled. You cannot go there, his door i? locked, and yon can't get In." First ".Then get me a key, I mn?t and

will go in." * , Landlady.?"I have no key but the one winch thev have, and that's inside the door." Hire the female servant suggested a plan she had a key to a room which communicated with the room the couple occupied. In a twink ling the wife had possession of it, and witli her friend had the doors unlocked, and here she tonnd her unfaithful husband with a flash wo man, well known in sporting circles. Here a scene followed; the wile overwhelmed with anger and sorrow, and the husband with con sternation and shame. On recovering from his astonishment he ordered her to leave the room iiistantly, pretending to be in great anger at the intrusion, and it Is stated that he drew a pistol 011 her, threatening her life. The whole house was in commotion by the excitement?the w'fe crying and her female friend commiserating and trying to console her, while her husband was suily, and hi* companion insulting in lan guage and demeanor to bis own wife. To cut the matter short, after a lull in the ex citement, the new boarder, after making his toilet. a?compan;ed bis wife to his home, in the northern sectiou of the city, but after ward* returned to the house on the avenue, where he and bis com|>aijioii remained until yesterday atternoon, and it was not until t he landlady-threatened to have them arrested that thev w? re prevailed bjioii to leave. The w ife of this faithless husband is repre sent :d to be handsome, accomplished and mflfC tionate. The husband is young, prepossessing i ,i ap|iearauce.andd?lng a successful rest euraut business in this city. They have one child, about tour years of "age and nothing prior to this has occurred to mar their conjugal rela tions. The ense seem* to be one of great hard ship for the wife, and it is to l?e hoped that th>3 trnant husband will, for the sake of al! r.iti cerned. turn from the evilof his ways and nave further exjicsure. ?
