The amount already appropriated, ($'J,500,) for the paymont o? clerks In that office, wu i entirely too small, and tho highest sa lary only amounted to $800, and from that down to $^50.

On Tuesday afternoon last the admirers of tbe trotting turf were favored with a moat capital race between b. m Rose of Washington and b. m. Lady Moscow, mile heattt, beat three in five, to wagons, for $1,000. Five heats were closely and excitingly contested, before the judges gave the race to Rose of Washington. Lady Moscow was en tirely too llnely drawn for a long race, and lost from want of itrength alone. Her owner, not satis tied with her defeat, offered the-owners of Rose a match for 92,000 aside, which, however, was not taken. Roie of Wash ington In the fourth and fifth heats of the race, proved herself a good and reliable nag for her backers. Sho im proved in every beat as the race progressed. Previous to the start the betting was 100 to 80 on Roso of Washington; bnt after tbo second heat 100 to 50 ran the other way. Thero was all kinds of hotting dono on tills race, and in all kinds of ways. Betting on t 'me wan also prevalent; and those who took timo Id preference to the horses, were generally fortunate. Tbo weathor was very sultry aud prostrating, really dangerous both to nmn and beast. Still the race went on, as follows First Ileal. ? Rose of Washington won the polo. At the first attempt tliey got off at a tremendous rate of spo?d; but in less than one hundred yards from the stand Moscow wont up and staid up so long that it was thought she never would come down again in that race. She landed, however, about ono hundred yards behind Roso, anc again went to trotting. Rose passed the quarter pole in forty secc nds, and took It very leisurely down the backstretcb, reaching the half mile polt in 1:21 >?. At that time Moscow was near upon her, when the bob tailed nag again made an ascension a la (<illey, and was up along time. She saved her distance, in 2:43. Si lfrat. ? Moscow took the lead In a moment after the word was given, and opened a gap to the quarter pole o! thirty yards. Time, thirty-seven seconds. Sne weut to the hall mile pole in 1:17, and came home an easy winner in 2:36. Third Heat. ? This was nearly a counterpart of the pre vious heat, only that Roso kepi closer to Mus ;ow all tbo way. Time ? first quarter, 39 seconds; half, 1:20; and the heat, 2:36. The last half mile was finely contested, and was performed in 1:16. f 'tnlirth Heat. ? One hundred to forty was offered on Moscow, without takers. Moscow took the l?ad, aud went to the quarter pole in thirty eight secon ts, with Rose on her wheel. Down the backstretch the little mare could not get away from Rose, aud on tbo lower turn they wero neck and nock. Then Moscow broke, aud then Rose came to tbo score ahead in 2:35; and then ttioro was a call lor the judges to go down to the turn and see a great dral they could not see; and then the judges [rave the heat to Hose, and called up the uag* for the Fifth Heat. ? Moscow, as usual, went off ahead, and lay "there until sho swung on the homestretch, when Rose, alter a line struggle, beat her home. Time, 2:39. Tlin following is a summary : ? Ti Emmy, July 15. ?

About 12 o'clock on Tuesday night the saloon of the Metropolitan Hotol was the scene of a great deal of coufusion,aad excitement, in consequence of an affray between Mr. John Stan wood, of Massachusetts, and Burford W. Vlx, a South Caroli nian, brought about by the manner in which Mr. Stan wood denounced tho late attack on Senator Sumner by Congressman Brooks. Tho gentleman from Massachu setts took occasion to say that the conduct of Brooks on the occsion referred to was most brutal and cowardly. Mr. Vlx, wno Is either a relative or personal friend cf llrnoks . refuted the charge made against the latter, and, as is alleged, followed up the argument by blows Willi a walking cane. One of the Fcurtnenth ward police was called in to que, I the difficulty, when Mr. Vlx was arrett ed and taken to the station house for tho remainder ot the night. Yesterday morning the accused was brought before JostiecBronnaa, at the (bird District PoUooOirart; but the rottiptatnam not ? ppearing again jt bias be was discharged from custody. In the courso of the day Mr. Stanwood hearing that Mr. Vlx had been discharged, proceeded to the police court above mentiouod and made an allidavlt Hgamst the gentleman from South Carolina, charging him with assault and Lattery. A warrant was issued for tho arrest of tbe accused party, but up to last evening it had not been executed. Mr. Staiiwood received a pretiy se vere beating at tbe hauls of Mr. Vix, as his apponraaoo can plainly testify. Fooo for Tons Law thus ? Borne twenty five unfor tunate women, residents of the Fifth ward, were arrested and locked up In tbe Fifth ward station house on Tuesday night. Yesterday mornirg they were taken to the lower I wilier court at tbo Tombs, where, sfter a short detention (ion stid a still shorter reprimand on tbe part of tbe ottlci sting magistrate, they were discharged from custody. We would like to kn<>w what good can be effected by ar resting those miserable creatures and then dls -har'^lug them in less than twelve hours afterwards. Tombi law Vers alone are benefitted by such a proceeding, and hence It ought to be discontinued. Caam.sor Pnicsv. ? Charles A.

The rom|4aiuant, Charles 8.

Ore at South Day? Fish and Fiihing, rfe., de. One pretty hot day h*st week we asked somebody whoro we should go to cool oil'. Somebody aald " Fire Island." Tlie name Htruek us as a misnomer? ' Fire " Island certainly could not be a cool place. But we loolced at the official chart " from Gey Head to llenlopen," and found that Fire Island wiu tit great South Bay, and that one side of it was bathed bj the Atlantic surf. Come now ? that must bo cool; and ao wo set off. How dooa one get tliere t By the Long Island Railway, from Brooklyn to Deer I'ark la tblrTyeight mlhu; ovor to Babylon, about si* miles fartbor, In a stage, and thcuce by steamboat to the island, say six miles more, and we buy a through ticket which costs us $2, and, alter being plunged Into an unpleasant tunnel, are rattled through a pleasant country, stopping at small stations every two or three miles. Alter two hours' riding In the cars wo arrive at Deer Park, seeing numerous stages ? all dear enough ? and are soon en route for Babylon, quite a different place, we apprehend, than that from which originated the scarlet woman, about whom our Fillmoro friends are so much exercised. Wo flod that the railway company, with that pleasant style so com mon to corporations, baa made a l'alse representation about the steamboat. She had been taken off two weeks before, and we have to put up with a soil boat instead. We think Eevero things about the railway company. In the lir.t impulse of our rage we pronounce it a swindle to lake a penon's money fcr a passage in a steamboat wU?n there is not ft steamboat. But as the gentle sea breeie steals o'crfour fevered brow something whispers to us. ?' they always do it;" and, reflecting on the long Lite of travel leta who have been similarly plundered, wo reflect that we art in good company, and we feel calm ifils We are veiling in the great 8outh bay, on the Atlantic side of Ixnig Irland. The bay commences at Hempstead, about twenty mile* from Now York, and continues to South Hampton, sixty miles to the eastward. It has nu merous pleasant inlets, and its shoro is dotted with scores of the prctUest of marine villas. That light house is Fire Island light, celebrated in the annals of disasters by sea; and the waves that dash upon the long, natural break wat> r, sing tho requiem of many a gallant heart whose puliation* are now stilled forever beneath the deep, deep sea. Hereabouts occurred tliat terrible disaster to the pilot boat K. K. Collins, the details ot which must bo fresh in your memory. Here on this bar she weut ashore. It was one of the bitteres; nights of last January. Six lives were lost, and the only soul saved of her company was a boy, sixteen years old, who remained in the boat Im nierssd In water during thirty-six hours. Ho saw liis brave comrades die, one by one, before his eyes, and mo mentarily expected a similar fate. A sad story, truly, and you seem glad that tho passage is ovor? albeit it is a pleasant one. Now we are lauded on the island, and are hospitably received at the Surf Hotel. This house was recently erected by Mr. Sammls, of New York city, at a cost of $3,000. It is well lifted throughout, and thecw&irw is the best that we have ever found on tho sea shore The fresh fish and oysters, especially, challenge competi tion. It is a refreshing exception to the general rulo or summer hotels, where one is usually charged a great deal and gets nothing to eat. Fire Island Itself is a little larger than the Tark; it* shore is washed on ooe ixle by the douth bay, and on the other by the Atlantic. The surf on the Atlantic tide, even in calm weather, r'lit very high, and the bathing U mug nificent.? have never seen, even at Newport or Capo May, ?Uflh nsagnitkrenl breakers as those a'. Kirn Island. One muit be navicular indetd to swim in tlicm. On the I>ong Island a here, opposite Fire Inland, we have a splendid country, I im Wilted with creeks and dotted with little fresh water lakca or ponds, as tbsy call them here. That part oflsllp called Soutbnldo, b a favorite lunimer resort. It is on the .'bore of South Hay, and includes many pleasan summer residences. George H Barrett, the well known actor and manager, has a very comfort able little cotugo here, and reposes quietly on hit laurels. Tho drives about here are very plea seat. You may go over a pleasantly shaded road, fbur miles to t*ie?lioor's, or seven miles to Baby loo? either way you will ice something to amuse yon. We do not have any fever and ague or mosquito** here. The geological format too of the Hlaml at this point pre vents the jiossibllity of fever and sgne. We have no granite formation, like S rates Island ; no rock crovioo* wherein water lodges, sad fro? the evaporation of whtob the atmosphere ts filled with mutsma The ponds are fed by s lyings, which take their rise in the heights toward LonjfflHand Bound, nearly forty makes away, and Dud their outlet In these natural reservotrs, which are Just upon the sea shoro, and form the most beautiful contrast to the bold configuration ma?le by the b?ys and the in lets and the great natural breakwater which drives back the surf and makes the great South Bay a most delightful yachting ground. In fttrt, from the Has of leaving Brooklyn npou this excursion the eyo is constantly fiwtsd with the beauties ota magnificent natural panorama, in which tho ghutea of rursl and seaside life are alternately presented to th? eye. While we have such sowisry within forty or fifty miles of us. there is no oucmIob weary ourselves with long jaunts to Newport, Cape May, Saratoga or Sharon Springs. To the sportsman, this v.cinity present* peculiar attrac tions Indeed, long befinro It became a resort !o# the general public, certain cbelce ? pints were wont to ren dssvous at Isllp. and fiw? tbsace disperse ? some to tlsh sol-HiUcaJIy lor trout. whaA atxsuxl in th" lakes and -trenau ? oUiTS t? troll for hi us fisb tn the hay, s most ? selling spurt.

No old stager would have written ?icb a letter ? it ts to* plain, too practical, and too committal. It is like the author's papers wh*a contracting for bridges, railroads and steamboats ? i". says jast what it wants to aay, and stops there. It is a style of law's owe, and u very properly protected aga.ust by the Van Buren school of politicians, as an tnnova* tion of their long cherished method of puttlig thoughts on paper. You ci*?'t but lutve observed that the press of Washington bw left unnoticed this last document of lAw'g; but or all this, it ha.- made a stir, and Oio(autlior is charged with bitlding high for tho martyr's stake.

They say that lit* steamers are woru out, and that h? would not object to having them destroyed while- at the Sowth, as a punish ment tor hU extreme abolition eihortaUMM, by a gang of' drunkards or Southern tauallcs. While suib outrage would finally ]>ay a handsome per c>-ntage on the de stroyed properly, the aot itself would excite the North te tradnca.-, elect Fremout, and make law tlie man of the nation. This lb, cor'ainly , good calculation, if made by Mr. I-iW; but he will be surprised upon finding tliat the secret is out. and that further a bono of the South and her institutions by him, will be so rattoh labor thrown away. The South, through their representativse, complain that the fortune giveu by them to law, have been re|Kud by treachery and abuse. No. Mr. law iaay rest assured that fcis Bteainers won't be do.- troj-ed by the South, and that hit person will be aafe In conii^j and going frees Washington.

Dr. Cbaflee, from the Committee on Patents, has pr^ pared a very able report, which he will submit to ths liouae tn a few days, ou a reciprocity patent bill, whtek it is believed, will meet the approbat< >n of that body. % It ts Just such a bill as is required to meet the ciigeaetoa of the times. The report was made tn compliance with s memorial of John I.. Hays and others, praytng for tho application of the principle of reciprocity to th* patent laws of the United States. The report goe? on to aay that, in the high condition of the arta in this country, and present ability to compete with all foreign nations, asft the sentiment new prevalent among all the enlightened nations of the world that there ahould be among the n an equal and noble rivalry tn industrial activity, demand that the prosebt restrictions preventing foreigners from availing themselves of the patent laws of this country upon the tame terms as our own cilisens should be re moved. According to the 9th section of the act of 1434, a ctlt r< n of the I 'nlted States, la order to secure a patent, shall pay into the Patent Office the sum of thirty dollars; If ? subject of the King ol Creat Britain, the sum or five hun dred dollars : and yet the application ol a forotgner ocas stons no more trouble than that of ac4Uen of tins cons try.
