The Garbage lioseTion?The Roardor Health met last night, and Dr. Bliss, from ibe sanitary committee, made a report ou tbe proper construction, size, material, Ac., of the barrels to be nsed for the removal of garbage; referred to health officer. Mr. Marbury, from the spcclal committee to wbicb was referred the communication from tbe garbage collector in relation to the matter of requiring housekeepers to place tbe vessels conta'nlng garbage on the side walk in ftt?nt of tbeir premises, and asking that such a regulation be made, made a re port that in the opinion of the committee the duties of housekeepers regarding the dis position of their garbage are sufficiently de fined in existing regulations, which provide that "housekeepers shall put their garbage in vesse's, tbe capacity of wbicb shall not exceed cne bushel, and said vessels shall be I laced at a point ou the premises most acces sible to collectors; provided always that wherever carriage alleys exist In rear of dwellings raid vessels shall be placed either on or In close proximity thereto." * ? ? Tbe ecrrmlttee are also of opinion that tbls regulation. If rigidly enforced, wblch is here by recommended, protects alike the inter ests of the citizens and the contractors, and without passing upou the question of au thority vested in the board, they believe that further action Is neither nrce ^ary nor desirable.

H. yirhtAt superintendent of the a*ylrrrt p*ve idrther testimony in regard W? ibe Van K>w?u case, reading a Dumber of letters (covering a period ot three years) which =td between htm and the mother of tbe patient. Many of tnem acknowledged tbe receipt, of c'othlrg, furniture, picture*, Ac , at tbe asylum, from Mm. Van Kewan, ?iid were the letters referred to In her testi mony. Dr Nichols said be had no evidence that Mr*. Van Kewan ever contributed to ward* paying tbe expense* of her son,ex cept f2. There was no clothing sect by her from Jsnusry 6, 1871, to March 10, 1873. On tbe latter date received from her 9 shirts, 2 r air drawers, 2 pair woolen socks, collars, handkerchiefs, and reading matter, one coat, pants, vest and suspendera, for her son, which clothing was given to him. It. Nichols said a large number or appli cations for pensions had been referred to him for.examinatlon, and that he bad pre vented tbe government from wrongfully pay ing ont a large sum of money. He was frequently applied toby tbe Pension office for advice, whicb he gave freely. Inspeak ii g of Mrs. Van Kewan's testimony, h? said Gen. baker did not send h physician to tbe asylum aid make an examination into tbe treatment of patients tnere, though be re membered that a physician who was em piojtd in tbe Pension office did come there acu lrqolie in regard to the Van Kewan c*^e. Tbe physician called on a Sunday, at <1 his assistants remembered the visit very well. l>r. Nichols said the reason he l>e? ame a member of the Levy Court was to | have a road built to the asylum and toes- i lahlisb schools In that n-elgbtorbood. Tbe Levy Court met but once a month, and was in session bnt tvro hours. Ceased to be ? mem t er in 1WA. Became a member at tbe feitonal request of President Lincoln n regard to being appointed a member of the bca.d of police, which position be now holds, be said he took tbe position at the re quest of President Jobr.sou. His m lin rea son for serving was because he could have j telegraphic communication with police i headquarters in case of fire. He had a great < deal to do with tbe reorganlza.ion of the po i lice force, and placing it upon a military ! footing. Tbe police commissioners bold a meeting once every two weeks and remain In session lor several hours. Don't receive any salary for his services on the police board now. It has been decided that a gov- | en mint official cannot draw two salaries. When a member of the Levy Court, did not j draw any salary, tbougb tbe taxes ou some property be owned in the county were ex- j empted on account of his serving ou the Levy Court By Judge Boone:?When the institution furnishes clothing to patients It is paid for by tbe government,Congress making appro priations annually for tbat purpose. Van Kewan was partly clothed by bis mother, and if tbe record shows tbat be was clothed by tbe institution, it would not be correct. 1 Tnink be was well supplied with clothing when Van Kewan was first sent to tbe asy lum. Hid not intend to say tbat Mrs. Van f Kewan did not furnish him with any cloth ing irom January, 1>71, to March, l -7 J. In. tended to say tbat tbe letters do not show tbat any was received during tbat time. Judge Boone here read a letter of Dr. , Nichols, dated June 5th, 1972, furnished by Mrs. Van Kewan, acknowledging the receipt of a trunk full of clothing, and in reply to a question Dr. Nichols said be had no record of it. Neither bad be any record of a trunk full of clothing being received on February 14,1873, or February 19,1873. He had no rec ord of ary clothing from January, 1871, until March 10, 1873. If packages of clothing were received daring that time be bal no record of it. Always acknowledged the re ceipt of all clothing. Dr. Ni^bols was requested to produce bis books before the committee showing the re ceipt and distribution of clothing, which he prr mised to do. W itress bad no reco'.lection of Mrs. Van Kewan sending persons to see him and ask- | mg him if ber son needed auy more clothing, and bis replying that he had plenty. Can not call to mind any other case thaa that of Van Kewan where he informed the pension office wa? not a proper person to draw a pen sion. Has no recollection of referring Gen. Baker, Commissioner of Pensions, to other penons with the purpose of stopping tiie pension in the case, but may have shown him a letter which be received from the hoy'8 grandfather in relation to Mrs. Van Kewan. What he did cannot be fairly called aii ehcrt to stop the pension. The question was not whether the boy was entitled to a pension, but whether his board at tbe asy lum should be paid outof tbe pension, to the asylum. Instead of his mother receiving It. Tne further testimy of Dr. Nichols was po. tponed. C. A. ./. WtftfamMn, the carpenter of the asylum, denied the statement of the witness, Maber, that they both saw a patient kicked 1 the stomach by an attendant. l)y Judge Booue:?Tbe roof in several ; places of u>e asylum leaked, and sometimes , tLe patients' rooms were wet from water leaking into tbem. in such cases the pa tients were removed from the rooms into other rooms.

The Centennial Exposition at Ph!la deljhia ha* attracted to that f latter city hm.tlreds of thou-ands of people from all sections of tbe country, but li remains for | onr friend Prigg, tbe enterprising proprietor of the Jewelry store No. 4o7 Pennsylvania j avenue, by bis ban isome display of fine goods In his show window, to attract the mafsfs of Washington to his establishment. Mr. Prigg's present eiroris far surpass any thing In the past In the selection and display of novelties In his line, and proraenadors on the Avenue find it difficult for them to pass his slore without examining the fine display of Jewelry at his establishment. Among the novelties just received at Prigg's we noticed a choice selection of English lockets and crosses, with gold fronts, at from 92 to ?10: Lake George diamond solitaire studs and earrings and full sets of Jewelry, and the rerherche No. 50 Lake George diamond soil tairedropin earrings at #?, together with an elegant variety of silver filigree sets In Mr-rings, breast pins, chains, balls and crosses, acd bracelets to match. ?

Some excitement was created In tbe circuit court for t? e county yesterday, by Mr. O. W. 3imms, the Independent candidate for commonwealth s ettomey. He was counsel in a case In which he was also the defendant, and the Jury havirg rendered a verdict In his favor, he, <n a loud tone, asked permission of the court to invite them down to a psocery. The Judga at first not understanding tbe nature of t'ie request, a.?ked for its repetition; but when it was repeated, and he caught its meaning, well might It be said of him that never yet hath day beamed upon a brow more fierce than his, and the attorney, seeming to just realize his remarkable breach of decorum, hasterrd to apologize R*vej*ge ? Mr. H. 8. Johnson had some difficulty with the colored laborers he em 1 ploys at hiR hriek yard in tbis county, last | Saturday, while he was paying them off, , during which he seized a wagon whip and | tbraxhed ODe of them soundly. Soon after wards his revolver was stolen from hlsotn?e, i and that night tbe ricks of utiburred bricks, ! put tip to dry, were knocked down, and other , df mage done to his property. Col. Wm. Kilgocr left here to day for j Annapolis, In response to a telegram from 1 Governor John Lee Carroll, of Maryland, to I examine tbe signatures to the original act incorporating the Consolidation Coal Com pany, and determine whether or not they j are genuine. The colonel was secretary of I tbe Maryland senate at the time tbe act is said to have passed. j Fish Rifokt?Since yesterday's report | there have been received at Klshtowa 3,600 shad ai d 80,000 herrings, besides a quantity of sturgeon and other fish. Tne shad sold at from Sl.5 to ?17 per hundred, and herrings from tlO to 911 per thousand. Several more of tbe larger shore have cut out for the 6eason. Laborers Discharged.?One of the material tValna on tbe Virginia Midland railroad having been taken off, the bands who were employed thereon to tbe number of about seventy-five, came down to the pay master's office this morning for payment and discharge?[ Gazette, 16 th. The End Justifies the Means-a Very Remarkable Question and Answer i, 1 an Awembto of Mrihaiist Ministers.?At a meet ing of the Methodist preachers in Newark yesterday the discussion drifted to a ques tion whether it was righteous to do wrong iu order to accomplish great good. The ques tion grew out of the ease of "Rev." George K. Woodward. This person lately appeared In Newark as an agent of the Temperance Brotherhood, which Is countenanced by most of the clergy. His brslness was to enter saloons on Sunday, procure drinks, cigars, Ac., and then ou Monday cause tbe sellers to be prosecuted for violating the Sunday law. Should the church sustain Woodward, htm self aSatihatb law breaker? was the ques tion raised. To bring matters to a focus a clergyman present afked if, In order to ob tain evidence to prosecute and break up a bouse of ill-repute, a minister should visit the place and commit sin himself.' Blank amazrment was depicted on every one's face present. Rev. Mr. Graves alone had courage t?answer the most extraordinary question. He raised his voice and boldly declared that a ministerial transgressor in such a case would be justified; that he himself would not scruple to sin a little that great good might come; and he believed that God would approve the act. Tbe clergymen were abashed before, but now they were shocked outright, and the whole subject was quietly dropped. The reporters were warned not to make any mention of the discussion.?LV. Y. Herald, I (Uh. He Inbdi-trd Her Pet Dog The Haiti more correspondent of the Chicago Times says:?Miss Juliet Hawthorne, a young and pretty woman,armed herself with a cowhide this mornnlg. and sauntered leisurely down R road way. Arriving in front or the store of Joseph J. Fay, she sent In word requesting or.o me clerks named Strauss to step out for a mrmert. ftrauss responded, and upon ap proacftlrg Miss Hawthorne the laiter drew her rawhide ard applied it briskly over his head and shoulders, exclalmingl oudly at the time, "I'll teach you to throw a lady's pet dog overboard, I will." A crowd gathered as the young man skipped about to avoid the b'ows, ai d the neighborhood was in perfect nproar when a police officer came along and stripped the fun. Strands refused to have his assailant arrested. The lady suspected Stranss of having thrown her p.t dog over board. "I Wii.i. be a Rebel Until I Die."? Tbe revival work of Mr. Moody In Augusta, Ga., has met with a drawback. When he first bngan holding his open-air meetings the negroea mingled so indiscriminately with the audience that It became disagreeable to the whiten, and a dividing fence was put op. Mr. Moody did not like thla, and spoke of it, when one of the pastors informed him that It waa Impossible for the blacks and whites to mingle, even In a religious meeting. Mr. Moody then said: "I see you have not gotten over your rebellious feelings yet." "No." r aid the minister, "I am proud of my rebel lions feelings, and will be a rebel until I die." A correspondent of the Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution describe* tbe Incident, and says that as It becomes known "Mr. Moody will have very few to hear him among the whites." Archbishop Wood, of Philadelphia, th? venerable Roman Catholic prelate, says it would grieve him very much to see the Ex position openallday on Sundays. But be adds, after an able argument, that "among the means of Innocent relaxation of soul and body I can see none more barm less tban aD afternoon visit to tbe Exposition, where the poor and the laboring classes (and they are most numerous among us) may enjoy a few bcurs of rational pleasure. * # * In deed, I believe that it will have a most bene ficial efflect; that it will tend to prevent many disorders, and to check to a great ex tent that desecration of lite Lord's Day which is, unhappily, a growing evil In the com munity." The Great Statlk for New York Harbor?A Paris dispatch to the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, dated April 28, says: The casting of the gigantic bronze statue of Liberty, to be erected at the entrance of New lork harbor, has recently been begu'i here. Some idea of U>e dimensions of thia monster may be convejed by the fact that the should ers are more than twelve metres broad, and the head seven metres high from the cbin to the top. The legs measure several metres in circumference. A man can easily ensconce himself In many of the folds of the drapery; and the light which the statue holds In its hand is such that two persons can walk round it and pass each other, or take a chair and sit down. The inauguration of tbe new Courier Journal building in Louisville, Ky? and un veiling of the statue of Geo. D. Prentice, took place yesterday afternoon in tbe pres ence of an immense crowd. ?^"The governing committee of tbe New York Stock Exchange have agreed to place Louisiana bonds on the eall list of tbe ?x cbange, from which they have been exclud ed for the past two years.
