It was filled at the postal card agency at Springfield, Mass., and last eve ning .Mi,00of tbe new cards arrived, and in leas than five minutes after their arrival were on sale at tbe stamp window "in quantities to suit." As soon as the fact that they had arrived was known, a rush was made for tbe stamp window, everybody being desirou* of obtaining at least one of the new cards. Most of tbe crowd par chased from one to twenty-five cards each; some went as high as fifty and one hundred, and A few wanted fire hundred or one thousand. Muiy l?ught cards to send to their friends in different parts ol the country; one man send ing one thousand to a friend in Maine. S<> great was tbe demand for them that .luring the evening about 12,000 were sold. Tbe de mand continued to-day, and up to noon 35,000 cards were sold, and at 1:30 p. m. the number had reached about 80,000, and the cry "Still they cone One order for 9,000 ror a gentleman la New Jersey was filled to-day, and Adams A Co.*s express seat word that tber wanted 6,000 to commence with. of course almost everybody who bought a card at once "wrote a letter" and dispatched It to some distant friend.

The ur finished business, the settlement of the bills of Mr. Guinand, coal contractor, was then taken tip. Mr. Hfxt stated that the bil^ amounted to ?3.444>.*1, from which the board had ordered a drductioriof lu*er cent. He moved that the hills, witti the above discount being made, be approved; which motion was adopted. Mr. Hart reported that the difference be tween tli-; bill of Mr. Marlow for coal furnished during t ic holidays, when none could be ob tained from Mr. Guinand, was ?47, and moved that the amount be deducted from the bills of Mr. Guit and. Mr. Scott moved to amend by striking out the ?4" ami allow the bill to stand as rendered. Mr. Ctamplin ottered an amendment, that the ?47 be allowed, less 10 per cent, deducted. The amendment w as adopted and the motion agreed to. Mr. Woodward stated that he understood It was prop Med to have a second trial of spelling matches in the Intermediate schools. The s:ib l>oard of the second district had decided against the repe? itloo, and brought the matter before the board for consideration. Mr. French said that there had been no intention of repeating the spellHg matches. Mr. Hat desired to make a personal explana tion. He said that there appeared in the print ed statement of Mr. Guinand the following: "When the board met and the bids were opened, uiy bid was opj>os<d by Mr. Hart, al though 1 was the lowest.no doubt with the view of benefiting his district and his friends. He could not. however, get over rnr bid, and it ivas awarded to me for the whole city. Mr. Duliu felt quite jubilant over the matter, and Mr. Hart rcmurk( d to him, 'Your friend ha" the contract at last.'" Mr. Hart challenged any member to assert that they had ever heard him make any bucli remarks either in committee or the board. After waitiug for a response and receiving none, he pronounced the statement an infamous lie. Adjourned. Washington m. D.'s at St. Loris Dr. Woodward, of the National Medical Museum, delivered before the recent National Medical Convention at St. Louis the lecture on cancers, etc., which he prepared and delivered as one oi the Toner course in this cityduring last winter. In regard to the lecture there, the St. Louis Kt puNtcan says; "The audience was large. The lecture was a complete success. The Meaker began by ex plaining the reason why it u termed the ' Toner lecture.' It takes its name from the fact of its having first been delivered in Washington city before the Toner association, an association that makes a specialty of tumors, cancers and like diseases, and which was lounded by Dr. To ner, who set aside a large fortune for its support. He did not pretend to account for the origin of this terrible disease, that carries over 5,OX) vic tims to the grave annually within the United States alone. The day has not yet come for medical men to account for its presence. A large screen was arranged on the stage, upon which micro-photographs were projected by means of a magic lantern, magnifying full 5,000 diameters. By means of these ne illustrated his subject, showing the caucer in all stages of the disease. Dr. Woodward is a man of pleasing address, and makes a decidedly favor able impression upon his auditors. He has had a large experience in the treatment of this class of diseases, and his lecture last evening wa? an evidence that he haa ably qualified himself upen the subject. The lecture occupied fully an hour and a half in delivery, and was listened to with marked attention." As IsrAMors Octbaob by For a Rcrruil One of the most infamous outrages recorded in the criminal annals of this District was perpe trated on Saturday night last upon the person of a respectable widow lady named Agnes H irt nett, who resides with the family of officer Fitzpati ick in the northeastern portion of the city. It seems that on Saturday afternoon last she went out to make some purchases of arti cles on 7th street, and on her return home wated to make a friendly call on an acquaint ance living In Jackson' alley, directly ea>t of the government printing office. While there a vouug man. whom she had seen before, (a friend of the family whom she was visiting,) came in, and on ner arising to go home he offered to accompany her, a* it had grown dark, She accepted his otter, and while they were crossing an open commons, three other young men approached, whom she soon found were companions of her escort, an I all tour seized her, and after gagging her, commit ted repeated outrages npon her person, keeping her OH the commons until 3 o'clock in the morning, when they left her and start- d to the city. She groj>ed her way home as best she could, and told the story of her wrongs to the wife of the gentleman in whose house she was Hying, and on Monday morning she went to the Police Conrfand gave information against one of the parties whom she knew, but it is thought they have all left the city. It is hoped they will yet be caught and identified. CinsAPiAKE asn Ohio Caval?Jfrtti >o of Directors?The board of directors of the Cuesa peake and Ohio canal oompany met at Annapo lis yesterday. President Gorman submitted his report, showing that the revenue during the month of April amounted to 9fl9.*91.9ff* r tou ditures 317,888.22; net revenue, f .2.233.73 The number of tons of coal shipped during the month wasOf..f78, a decrease of 10,33o compared with April, 1K72. The decrease in revenue from tolls and rents, by similar comparison, was >2,174.63. while the expenditures show a de crease of f?25. The decrease In coal tonuagc and revenues is attributed to the destruction of the Borden shaft, the strike among a portion of the miners, together with a decrease in ship ments of one of the companies which has. In the past two years, furnished over one-fourth of all the coal which passed over the canal. Ship ments will be increased generally this month, however. The board aajourned to m*et on Monday, June 2d, when also the annual meet ing ana election will take place. Wall's Opsra Horse?Messrs.
