The injured man, whose name is Joseph Smith. was evidently attacked by burglars, who it is thought mistook the Mayflower for the yacht belonging to the Americus Yacht Club, and intended to get the silver plate recently presented to the club. They broke open the close's and searched them, leaving Smith sense less with his head horribly crushed. He was brought oft this mortii'ng. T>r. Boarman is of the opinion that the wounds are mortal.

Protections or the Park*. Ac. so** sro?K8Tioir* or ma-ior hii-hard*. Major Richards, superintendent ot police, in answer to a resolution of the Housa of Dele gates, calling his attention ta the act for the protection or parks in the streets and avenues, has addressed a letter to the House in replv, iu which he states that the law has been found to be inoperative to a certain extent, for the rea son that it applies only to parks "on the tul- or tid*f of any street or avenue," excluding the nuiceroiis public parks and reservations, mtny of * Inch have been recently improved aud beautifully ornamented, from the scope of its operations. The attorney for the District ha? I given an opinion, stating that the law cannot be enforced as against trespassers on other than parks "on the tide or tides of any street or ave nue," also any persons who are "owners or oc cupants of the lots lying on the same street or avenue, and fronting on the parks," Jtc., are virtually exempt from the restrictions and pen alties provided in section one of the act inques. tion. It is necessary to prove the trespassers upon grass-plots are not members of the fatui ties ot "owners or occupants of the lots lying iu the same street or avenue," and that they have not the permission of such "owners or occu pants" to enter on them before thev can be held amenable to the penalties provided by the act. The right of owners or occupants of lots to "enter, care for and use them." and also the placing of the " grass plats" under the imme diate "care and keeping" of the "owners or occupants of lots fronting thereon," renders the enforcement of this law difficult and un certain. Under this " care and keeping" pro vision, owners or oceupantscan permit not only their children and servants to enter these parks, but also the children and servants of all their neighbors, and the " rest of mankind"?not to sav all the cows, goats and geese in the District uricaptured by the Board ot Health. OTHKR DRTKCTIVE LAWS. He also calls attention to the coritoration law, inoperative in many instances, where snow is allowed to remain on footways or sidewalks, for the reason that it provides no |>enalty for a fail ure to remove snow from sidewalks where there is not " a building bordering" on the street and binding on the sidewalk which may be encum bered with snow. Under this section the own ers of vacant lots cannot be compelled to re move snow from sidewalks fronting vacant lots. The isth section, page l(tt, iu reference to ice, is more comprehensive, and includes the side walks "nrtfniviiig buildings or lot* of grounds," ?lc..This M C .on lb cdective except in instances where the owners of lots reside out of the Dis trict, (such instances being Suite numerous. > or when the persons having the care of such lot* cannot be found, which is often the case, as there are no records showisg who may have the care of such lots when the ewner resides oat of the District. Again. I am l^rnied that the Police Court has ulcil t*. ?' '? i bat is not used in playing at ye gaiu< m > in the Streets, such opera tions <lo not constitute a ?'game" within the meaning of the law, and therefore no ottence Is committed. This law should be so amended as to Include the tossing, throwing or impelling of a ball or missile In the streets, avenues or alleys, in any manner whatever. Accidents and dam ages are of frequent occurrence, arising from amusements with balls in the streets.

Section S pro videa that a photographic ropy of all seals used at any electien, for ballot-boxes, ahall. before the cloaing of the polls on the day of any election, be de posited with the clerk of tbe Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, t* b- by liiai kept until required by some lawful authority.) Mr. Cross . ailed up Council bill No. 13, TO ESTABLISH A SORMAL SCHOOL in the city of Waahiugton; which was read for in formation. Mr Golick moved to amtnd the second aection, which establishes tba amount to l>e paid tbe in structor, by adding a proviso that uo further ex pena?- shall be incurred than ia appronriab-d for the support of the public schools for tbe fiscal year end ing June 30, l?74 Mr. Gullck explained thnt under the present pressure of finances the Diatrict eh >uld not increase tbe expenses, and after a consultation with some of the trmstees and the superintendent of achools, it was thought that there ?a? no m-.-d of using the ?lJ0ns?*t apart for the instructor the first year. It wits an experiment, and it would take *ne year at least to organize the school. Mr. Buker thought tbe bill as it stood contradic tory in ita terms, as section two appropriates SI Jut) for salary of instructor. Mr. Uulick said the bill does not appropriate any money at all. but aimply names the amount of salary. Mr Buker thought that nnder the term* of the bill a teacher might sue and recover from the Dis trict?lie thought the aection fixing the salary should be stricken ont. Mr. Gntick said the ob*?rt the first year *a? "imply to get the school organized and in ruuniug order. Mr Golden moved to strike ont the clause fixing tbe compensation. Mr Thompson thought it should remain?the amonnt was email enough, and th- teacher can and

should claim it under the terms of the bill, if passed. Mr Gulick said he had drawn up the amendment knowing well what he waa doing, and disclaimed that the fl 50" could be used ?nd?r tbe proviso. The superintendent of s, he "is had seen the amend ment, and approved of it. Mr Brooks was not satisfied to let the section re maiu under any verbal understanding that the monoy shall not be expended a- provided, as it might cause trouble heteafter. The amendmt nt was agreed to, Meaars. Browne, Brooks, Bnker au'i Biley voting in tbe negative. On the passage of the bill Mr. Browne said that he should vote for it, although it had defects; in rela tion to the charge* of fraud agaiu't s<>me of the trustees and contractor* he had alluded to at a former meeting of the Council, b>< now stated that the peisou who had given hnn the information in writing, had couched It under the bar of "private,'" thereby preventing liini from giving it tbe publicity he desired to do. Mr. Buker was opposed to the bill, on the grounds that they should not vote a dollar for experimental purposes w Idle the finances are in such a state ss at present. The law confinesonr expenditures toour re. eipts, and the amount is too great to be used 1 >r experiment* and entirel) too little to carry aut the purpose* proposed, of establishing a Normal School. The bill was then passed, Mr. Buker Toting in the negative. House bill No. 8?, for the collection or delinquent taxes, was read a first time. The President laid before the Council a communi cation from the Governor, Inclosing a r-'port from General O. E.

The Evbhism Star has repeatedly protested against this nuisance, and it Is hoped will do ao again.

The Mean Whistle M aisaaee. t<lu\ r Star?Sir. 1 wish to call the attention of the authorities through your Influential paper, to the very great and " unnecessarv an noyance which the people of the nonheakern Krtof the city are subjected to through the *seant blow ing of steam whistles and ring ing of bells by the employes of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad company. 1 say unnecessary, because the blowing ot the whistle is unreason ably prolonged, often lasting over thirty seconds. Surely some system of signals could be devised which would do away with this eternal ana exceedingly unpleasant noise. It is more try ing than usual at this season, when, through the heat, i>eople are compelled to have their windows open. If the whistle is blown before crossing Boundary street It can be heard along the line and at the de|*ot. What more is neces sary? We think the |>eople are entitled to some consideration at the hand* of this monopelv; but instead they treat us with the utmost con t -n.pt. They lay tracks where they please with out the authority of law;thev comply with the grades of street" or not. ss it suits their con venience; and they disregard the law of our legislature regulating the speed of steam cars within the city limits.

W. B. CCDLirr. Decoration Day at Ball's Bin IT. While the graves at Arlington were being decked by loving hands, and orators with elo quent words were recalling the brave acts and generous sacrifices of the bovs in blue w ho fell in defence of Union and Liberty; the grave* of those who fell in the terrilde disaster at Ball's Blaft were not forgotten. Nor have they been neglected since the war. Every Spring caine to their secluded resting place, those who ha 1 lost friends, perhaps sons or husbands in the same cause they had fought for, or those why through the k ng tad war had lived in its very vortex ami hoped and prayed for the Union's victory. The ceremony has not been neglected since Its institution, and has been conducted with loving earnestness and quiet simplicity that gives it added significance, when the remoteness of the place from the nearest town, and its almost utter inaccessibility are taken into consideration. On the present occasion a numerous party had gathered from Water tord, Leenbtirg, Wash ington, and Falls Church, with their choicest flowers to celebrate the occasion. The orator of tin' day was Col. S. E. Chainberlin, who ha> I beiieve. not only led the movement from the tirvf, but been the most active assistant at each succeeding anniversary. He gave a short ac count of the advancc,' the tight and the di>-a? trous retreat. He reviewed the cause they suffered for, and its final triumph, closing with the hope that the unity secured would now be enjoyed in harmony' by all. Appropriate remarks were also made by John B. HutMn and Edward Nicho!s. The flowers, which were of the choicest varieties, were then laid by tender hands u|>on the graves. Hollywood. ? ? - THE VOIKTB. CIRCUIT COURT, Jttdtt ?To-iIit, Hugh*-* agt.
