The report of the ConimLv-iorers of the Fire l>epartnsent. sent to the Legislature yesterday, covers the period ironi April 1. 1*72, to March 31, 1*73._ New engine-housesare a>ked tor com. Ciues No*. 3 and 5, the former on account of s extension of the Capitol grounds, and the latter an account of its untenable condition and unfitness tor the use to which it is devoted. A new engine company in the northern section of the city, and new book and ladder company at the west end. are urgently recommended. The reconstruction and extension of the lire alarm telegraph is also urgently recomuiendcd. The report ,-avs: " Saving of valuable time by the use of thn electric tire alarm effects the rescue of millions of dollars worth of valuable property from the flames every year, without it the best organized force is comparatively in efficient; with it, the usefulness of the depart ment is increased in a ratio which makes the expense insignificant in comparison, i >ur city was one of the tirst to adopt the Are alarm tele graph, but that was many years ago. and now a large portion of the mo>t valuable property in Washington and (ieorgetown iseutdde of the limits of the area guarded bv the wires. This may result at any time in a" disastrous confla gration. Worse than that, is the fact that the area covered by the system is very inefficiently protected, ard mi-placed confidence in the alarm boxes may lead to worse results, even, than the absence of the telegraph. * * ? The tarring in ot a wrong number bv these old boxes, by which ttiedepart ment is misled, might cost our citizens ten times the amount re quired to do the needed work." The following are the estimates of expendi tures for the next fiscal year:?Salaries,*58,40*; repairs to apparatus, *t>.i?*i; horse feed, *<i,unn: aopplies ot all kinds, *3.u?i: repair-to houses. 92.<NK>; lire-atarm telegraph. *2,500; repairs to harness. *700; washing. ?*?*>-, fuel and gas, ?2.3IO-, horseshoeing, aouo; eight thousand feet new hose, *12.s?i0; six new horses, ?2.W?; re building houses for companies No. ;i and 5, fJO MO; deficiency for 1?72, ?14,61C; deficiency for 1*73, total, #I3t?,81?J. 3 The commissioner* a-k the pavage of an act by the Legislature requiring the construction of Are-walls in all rows of buildings. Especial at tention is called to the necessity or uaking the appropriation a-ked, both for the corrent ex penses. and to pay the indebtedness already in carred, as one of the causes which go to swell the cost of running the department is the fact that dealers who furnish them are compelled to wait for a yea- for their money. The hose of the department is stated at a)<ont 4,Mo feet, aiost oi which is well worn and not able to stand the pressure. The chief engineer - report shows that the whole number of alarms during the year were 192, of which !? were false, 4 from chimneys, and 3 test alarm*. Total alleged loss by the other 13*; fires, *lt.2.1on; insurance, *125.000. Of this the loss by the fire at the National Theater and at the G street wharf is put down at 9l-2-*s.<ww>. leaving the loss by the other 131 fires but *30,100. The number of fires as compared with the aver age of the past eight years shows an increase of ?, and the losses as compared with the same averages show an increase of *W,oon. The superintendent of the fire-alarm telegraph YCtOmottnds the reconstruction and extens;on of the telegraph and the substitution of 100 au tomatic for the 55 crank-boxes now in use. He **?'?*!*? the cost of the work, including 3 new bell-strikers, 1 ttuV?-dial repeater, loo auto matic alarm-boxes, 5 gOflg* io? ?r.jine-hottse-?. 1 switch board, l<tf> ce'l* additional battery.

Mr. Brown here made a state lent to the conrt. denying any Intent to defraud, at said that Mr. Coombs followed him np fur davs > solicit him to take his case, representing that his aim would amoast tn millions of dollars; that he lefendant N as persuaded to believe that he hail some >rt of fro homo p?hhro claim, but he had made no Use r*presentations.

The court states that he tw no intent; it was usual for attorneys iu such sses to charge a retaining fee before commencing tits, and he would dismiss the case.

The com littee to whom tlie subject has been referred eclare that- the relations between intemper noe and crime are so significant that they can ot be ignored. They assert that four-fifths of II crime* In that country can be traced to in -mperance, fortifying their position by the act that ot 28,289 commitment* in Quebec and Ontario last year 21^236 are to be traced direct r to Intoxication. They also cite the opinion of B physicians, who testify that aloohol is pro ocative of disease and death, being In fact a ealth destroying agency. They are Inclined d test prohibition, and are seeking to frame a effective law. There la a strong feeling tn be Parliament on the subject, and a stringent iw, if not one absolutely prohibitory, will be Sighs or Dkath?l>r.

The welters Save had their pockets enlarged, the cock roaches are unusually Bveiy and well trained, while the bedbugs have formed associations, by which net more than three rettelh of 1 tuckers will prey npon guests la one night. From all Appearance* Um farmer and fruit grower will bare to contend the coming season with an on usual number of noxious lute*. It ie, therefore, necessary to take immediate steps for defence against them, as moat apeciea pro duce several broods in the mason, multiplying by the thousand fold, making all work in ex terminating the first comers an exemplification of the adage "a stitch in time saves nine," only reading instead of nine, nine hundred. In the first place, every one has noticed the vast num bers of cut-worm in the ground, both in sod and stubble. These will, u not killed or kept away by pungent mixtures, do Incalculable in Jury to the corn crop. Indeed, I find them very troublesome ui the vineyard and In the young asparagus beds that have not yet been dressed with salt. I have found thirty in a space not larger than my hand. There are many devices for securing the corn against its attacks, and these should be hunted up, and the best adopted. Rolling the seed in coal tar (a very little) may keep them off; Punching holes in the ground be side the corn-nills, and the use of some very odorous and odious superphosphate may repel them. Salt Is very useful in repelling this and other Insects, but must be applied sparingly, and in connection with lime or plaster. It is an error to suppose that salt is sure death to corn. To a certain extent it is beneficial, but too much ef it will kill the plant. Perhaps the surest way to get rid of the cut-worm is to gather them by hand and feed to the chickens, thu* (figuratively) killing two birds with one stone. See how manv you can get in half an (more or lest.) he will have done wetland you will have done better. ^Bfttherdestructive insect i< the tent-cat?rpil lar, which molests the apple and kindred trees. They are already producing their second broods. Every worm's-m" it in valuable tree or worthless should be at one destroved. Cutoff and burn, or if on a large limb crush out or burn tkoronyhly (which is difficult) with a torch. I had just liea'rd of starving them out bv throw ing sail* on the wtbs.but 1 should prefer some surer method. The curculio* are another great nuisance, hut I can not yet see whether they promise to be more plentiful this summer tliati usual or not. Study up the different methods of warfare, and adopt the simplest. Some strong, bad smelling application is useful, as the *'Turk" has a deli cate nose. A valuable plum or apricot is worth taking care of. The thrip, a small tly that Infests the grape vines, threatens to do us great injury. Take care of them, tor thev are more dangerous thiui most insects ot larger size, and have ruined many vineyards in the west. Trv soap suds showering, sulphur, torches, carbolic applica tions, ami report as no successful meth ods for ridding the vine of this pest are yet i?op ularly known. The blister tly, or potato beetle, was plentiful last year. Drive them oft' the viue with straw whisns and stamp them out. In bis warfare against these pests man should seek other aids than his own hands or ingenious methods and contrivances can give. Tho birds will do tar more work than he in saving his cro|?. Protect thf birds if you mould exterminate the inmate. I would even spare the crows, tar ring the corn to prevent them from gormau dizu.g. but letting them come to feed upon tna cut-worm, caterpillars and chinch bugs that silently and in concealment work more ruiu than can all the genus carous. In conclusiwn, remember, as some fruitgrower has before re marked, as eternal vigilance is the price of lib ertv, so is it also the price of fruit May 15th, 1*?73. SiNortAR Hakoino ok a Lai??Coroner Young has been notified to hold an inquest at 120 1st avenue, on the body of .lohn Steue, ag--d fourteen years. He was employed by .1. \V. Houghton, importer, 706 Broadway, and this morning was found partially suspended by the check-rope used at the hatchway. The hatch way was closed, and the loop In the rope was a short distance above the floor. When discovered the head of the boy was through the loop, and the ro|>e pressed upon the windpipe, lie was dead. Whether or not death was caused by strangulation can only be determined by a post mortem examination', which will be maae by Deputy Coroner Beach. The deceased was very delicate, and it is supposed was suffering from heart disease; he may have been playing with the rope and was caught in the noose, or he may possibly have been suddenly seized with pain and fell forward, and was thus caught in it. His relatives do not think he committed suicide. His legs and one hand rested on the floor X. T. Sxprest. 20'*.
