Oae concerning the building of the new angina house for the Franklin Fire Co ; also, the monthly report of the Inspector of the Fire Department for the month of March last; also, one from the Corporation Attorney, explaining the necessity far a tho roagh revision of the laws governing the in* apeetion of kmber; also the report of the In tendant of the Asylum for the month of March last Also, a communication from the Trustees of the Public Schools, asking for an additional S:imary school in the third district? 5th and th wards. Petitions were then prasented from T M. Brush, lienry Sit*, San I Armstead, and fey- j ton C. Beardaley?were ssverally read and referred. Bills from the B^ard of Common Council iuakin* an appropriation to grade and gravel New York avenue, and for cleaning gutters and alleys iu the First Ward, were passed. Also, a bill making an appropriation to pay the healer of Weights and Measures the in crease of salary authorised by the act ap proved January 25, 1865, w< s passed. A bill amendaiory of the en toorganisa tho police system of the city of Washington?re pealing the existing provision of law requiring the police magistrates to live in Wards for whicn they may be elected?was read twice Mr Pepper advocated the enactment of this bill on the ground that there are nut at this time magistrates residing in the Wards in which the police justiceship) are cow vacan', lit to be elected to those vacant offices. It was opposed at some length by Messrs. Bayly. Borrows, and Fitspatrick, who urged that the presenco of the police magistrates were particularly needed in the Wards in which they serve,in the night time, and that to leave any Ward in the city without a police magistrate at night would cause interminable trouble and embarrassment Mr. Pepper conceived that it mattered very little where the police justice resided, as it waa easy to travel a block more or lesj to his residence at night in case his services were re quired Mr. Pearson siid the night duties of a police magistrate could as well be done by any other justice of the peace Mr. Hill suggested the propriety of re ferring this bill, insomu?h as it could not be oome a law (requiring the Mayor's signature,) in time to meet tba cu e in hand this even ing?the election of police juiuces for the Second and Third Wards. Mr Bayly moved the reference of this bill to the police committee; bill referred?yeas 6, nays 5. as follow?, vis: Yeas?Messrs Layly. Borrows, Fitspatrick, Johnson, Heed, and Hill. (President) Nays?Messrs Clark, Evans, Houston, Pear I in and Pepper. Mr. Borrows reported a bill from the im Srovements oonnnittee appropriating $561 ad itional for oonveying water along 10th street west and I street, north ; pasted A bill making provision for tha redemption of certain paving stocks was thon considered Mr Hill addressed the Board at length against this bill, on the ground that its pro visions released certain property holders from the tax for increasing the width of tha pave mn^ on Pennsylvania avenue six feet, in ac cordance with the agreement on the part of the city una?r which Congress regraded, light ed, set new euro?, *?d caused trees to be plant ed along the said aveCue. Mr. Pepper contended that the change of the grade of Pennsylvania avenue without the previous petition cf the property-holders upon it made it incumbent on the Corporation to re* frain from seUing this property for arrearages of taxes, as above explained. He conceived that Congress had no moro right In justice to change the grade ot the city's streets without the consent of the majority cf the property holders immediately interested, than the Councils had Mr Hill urged that the improvement in question by Congress had increased the value of the property along that portion of Pennsyl vania avenue, (between Seventeenth and Twenty-second streets, in the First Ward ) fi/tv per centum Mr Pepper?Soils of the holders of that property are not getting one per oentum per annum interest on it. After further debato? The queetion was then put on the third read ing of this bill?providing that the Corpora tion shall borrow $1,600 to pay the balance of tax in question due from delinquent property holders, between Seventeenth and Twenty second streets, and charging the said sum to the account of the First Waid; read third time t end passed. The lower Board's joint resolution postpon ing the sale of property on Pennsylvania ave nue between 22J street and Kock creek, f^r paving tax due, was taken up and rejected, after debate. A bill in relation t? surplus earth in First street east, was then pissed. The lower Board's amendment to the bill amendatory of an ait entitled " An act pre scribing the duties of collector of taxej, and fixing nis compensation," approved June 3, 1853, was agreed to. Mr. Clarke reported from the public fohools committee an act authorising the eetabiiah aent of an additional primary school in the third district; passed. The lower Board having come into tho Al dermen s chamber for a joint meeting, Mr. Hill was elected chairman, and Chas. F L jwery was chosen secretary Tbe joint meetiag then proceeded to the election of the five codifiers. Mr Fitspatrick nominated J. M. Carlisle, Walter Lenox. P. it. Fendall, Peter Force, and Chas. Abert. Mr Donn nominated Josiah F. Polk, J. H. Bradley. E C Carrington, J. M. McCalla, and Samuel Chilton. Mr Lay!/regretted that ths party in power had chosen to select only lawyers for these places He preferred to have one business man and one mechanic on the ticket. He thought the ticket in ques'ion peculiarly un fortunate, insomuch as three of the lawyers on it were aurely ignorant of the secotsities of the city. Mr Pspper trusted that he (Mr. Baylj) would make a nomination of some machanio. Mr B. rejoined, saying that ho should pre fer to have Mr Jamea F. Haliday and Mr. Jos. Br;an on this board, but as he was so largeiy in the minority, it would be useless for him to make a nomination They next b.U lotud with the following re ? suit, vis?whole number of votes cast, 2o. k. For the ticket (Know Nothing) nominated by Mr Donn?14 For the ticket nominated by Mr. Fitspatrick (anti-Know Nothing;?4 Messrs. Fitspstrick and Donn acted as tel lers. The chair next announocd that tbe j int meeting would proceed to clect police magis trates f<*r the Second and Third Wards. Mr. Borrows sail that he had uniformly voted for Messrs Mycn and Urubb for these places, while the Mayor when in the Councils uniformly voted against them Mr B. then urged the evils of Koiw Nothingism, dis cussed the antecedents of ilr. McCalla and Mr J t. Polk, and condemned religious intol erance with vehement earuejtnesa ? Mr. Pearson called Mr. Borrows to order Mr. B continuing, discuaacd the claims and vents of Messrs. Gsubb and Myer#, holding tuat their present identification wl'h Know Nethingism justified this forfeiture of all con fidence in them He had also lost all confi dence in the whig party with which he had so 1ob| been identified. Mr. L fur.her argued at length to show the essential folly as well as isjui.ioe of relifieus intolerance, more espe cially in government affaire Mr Kvans here called Mr B to order. Mr. Kvans urged that Mr. Borrows had slandered the Mayor, in asserting that he bad been hitherto opposed to Messrs Urubb and Myers, and insinuating that he went to tbe President and set him sgainst those gentle man. Mr. ?? eulogised the Know Nothings, and con tended that he was as ready as any other man to defdbd tha Catholics in their rights under the oenatitution and laws. He would not, however, on any terms, consent to the civil equality of the foreigner with himself' la this country. He denounced in a very ex filed tone th? manatr U which, noo? Jose last the Know Nothings had been disease*! In the Alderman's chamber. Mr Hill called Mr. E to order. Borrows explained that Mr. Evan* had misrepresented his remarks wiih referenoe to the Major, [Mr. Towers] He had by no aeans charged him with going to the Presi dent on this matter; but he had said that if the President had aaked the Mayor relative to the qualifications of Messra Grubband Myers, his old position on the subject would have compelled him to advise that functionary (the President) that they were unqualified for po lice magistrates in hit judgment. Mr. B also intimated that the protestations of Mr. Evans, of his peeuliar disinterested public spirit in *11 he did in the waj of poli tic, pounded rather funny to him after hear ing him say in the pulpit, years ago, that he would sooner occupy the position of an itiner ant Methodist preacher than the offlce of Pres ident of the United States. [A laugh 1 Mr. Evans, in reply, explained at length the circumstances under which he bad left the pulpit for effiae, sayiig that he did so only after having made many facrifioes for the Church, and after serving it nine years, when, besoming engaged to his late wife, he was compelled in honor, by hia oircumstancas and Sin ?**t,0n!!to u*r' ??-?ooePt offer of an 5?v>0 effioe under the Government. The balloting then proceeded for police jus tices for i he Second Ward, with the following result, vis: ? Whole number of vote* oast, 27. For Paul Stephens 20 J. D.Clark, 3. Wm Thompson, 1. .Blanks, 3 The feint meeting then balloted for a police justice far the Third Ward (Mr. Borrowshav iag nominated Chas. P. Wannall,) with the following result, via: Whole number of votes cast, 25. For John L. Smith, 16. Charlea P. Wannall; 3. Blanks, o. L.Johnson, 1. Mr. Busey raised a question of privilege (faying thai he had voted a blank.) contend ing that ihe election of Mr. Smith was illegal, as be was a member of the Council when elected. But the Chair overruled the point of order as Gomiuz too late. The joint meeting then adjourned at 15 min utes to 11 p. bo. Common Council.? The Board met at the usual hcur.

Ins Ball op tub Columbia Firh Com part, last evening, waa a delightful entertain ment, indeed. JaeLaon llall was crowded with youth and beauty. Louis Weber's new cotillun band was the theme of the praiso cf all preEent It struck us as being a great in*.

A similar brooch, of ailver, was worn on the lappel of each member {resent. Dancing was continued until a very ate hoar, the oompany separating only as day was breaking. Thb Kpnkbl Opera TBours.?We regret exceedingly to annonnce that this talented and mirth-inspiring troupe will give their last performance but one thia evening. In the present dearth of rational excitement and amusement, their charming vocal ism and wit ty performances delightfully supply the want. Anew pitee de occasion, written by Mr. C. W. Tayleure, of the People's Theatre, entitled "Mysterious Coutta, or a Romance of Mario and Grisi," will be produced for the first time. It is said to be laughter-moving and witty. A new song?"WbrU'a the matter ?"?abounding in popular allusions and ((home thrusts" at folly will be repeated. It was received last night with soreams of laughter. Let a crowd ed house to-night attest the estimation in which they are held by oar oitixens. They visit Alexandria next. Thh Ball of tibYagbbb at Carusi'a last night wca also a delightful affair. Though not so numerously attended as that of the Co* lumbia Fire Company, all present appeared highly do'.ighted. The proportion of beauti ful young ladies was remarkable.

This was a joyous ball, indeed; and all went eff m happily an could be deiired. "IIctmbcq "?Folks are liable to be ham bugged at times, but it is very unusual for of ficers to be assisted by humbug in the enforce ment of the law. Last night, however, a part; of colored gents Were assembled in a room on Ninth street,amusing themselves by gambling. They were a caution* set, Laving a password to be given at the door before any one could enter. About 9 o'clock, three raps were given at the door?the gamesters played on. Again the raps came; still no answer; but on the third signal, the question was Hiked : ''Who comes there V "Humbug!" said a low voice without. "All right?let him in." The door w.u opened, and, to their inexpressible amaze ment, there stood the chief of police, with officers Boss, Allen, and Martin. They were taken to the guard house, where they were or dered to pay the fine imposed by our city law. The gamesters say they were humbugged com pletely, but have determined to secure them selves against humbuggery la future. Yesterday afternoon. Charles Wallace, Sid ney Brown, Lancaster Parker, and Wm Ellis were arrested by the ohief of polioe, with of ficers Allen and Martin, for a like effence. The place in wbloh they wore assembled is en Pennsylvania avenue, between 3d and 4} streets. Activity secured the above named; tat one seeing no other way to oscape, leaped from the window, and thus eluded the officers. His companions were taken before Justice Morsell, who ordered each one to pay the fine and coats. Thb Drama at Iron Hall continues toattrsot large and discriminatiog audiences, and a most marked improvement in their efforts has been visible during the past wrek, and the effectiveness of the compsny has been in creased by tho addition of several popular actors thus rendering it one of the most de serving tbat has ever vinited Washington We would say one word in commendation of Mrs. Atwood, whose "old women" are given with a quiet, lady like effectiver.eaa, m refreshing as it is true. Of Miss Wyctte and Mr. Taylor, praise from us would be a work of scpereroga tion. They are artists in every Eeuse of the word. Go,'and judge for yoaraelvea.
