Of all the things which are really "handy to have in the house," believe us wben we sincerely assert that the roost useful and most valuable is a 50 cent bo ttle of Radway's Roady Relief. We say this deliberately, conscientiously, and without fear of contradict ion on the part of any one familiar with the extraordinary virtues of that popular medicament. From a bruise to a pain in the bowels, from a oat to a cholic, from a sprained ankle to an attack of dysentery, from a mere cold to severe convulsions, from a sore finger to the rheumatism, from diptheria down to deafness, and from a pimple on the face up to a paralysis of the limbs, there is no case ill which Radway's Ready Relief will not remove the pain as soon as it is applied, and remove the disorder altogether in a manner most surprising as well as truly oxpeditious. Rubbed on the afflicted part the relief exponeneedisimraediatc. Taken internally in sweetened water, (say a teaspoonful to a wineglass of water), it instantly annihilates a pain in the stomach, quickly cures a diaiThtca, destroys all inflammation, and re. tores heal th.

The Richmond Dispatch of Thursday thus announces the reizuro of the Examiner, before announced by telegraph: The Examiner newspaper was suspended by military order on Tuesday night about 1 o'clock. An ofiicer, with a file of men, appeared in the office and took possession of it —the officer seizing upon proofs and manuscripts then in preparation. The Examiner, therefore, did not appear yesterday. It i- known that the Examiner had discussed sectional questions with considerable freedom. Speculation was rife during the day as to the motive of the order, and whether it caino from Washington or not. It was reported that Mr. Pollard, the editor of the Examiner had sought an interview with Gen. Terry, but that that officer bad declined to grant it, intimating that if Mr. Pollard did not know why his paper was suspended, he could not enlighten him. Mr. Pollard left the city for Washington last evening, to make an effort there to obtain relief from the order. The event of tbe suppression of the Examiner was announced by a telegraphic correspondent of tbe New York Hera Id, who states in that paper of yesterday that it is understood that the order emanated from General Grant. The New Orleans Times of the oth instant gives the verdict on the Bagdad raid more in detail than the despatch already received by telegraph. The Court found that the attack was inaugurated and carried out by R. Clay Crawford, representing himself to be a major-general in the Liberal Mexican service, assisted by other adventurers; that several United States soldiers were seduced into the enterprise by these men, did so without the knowledge or consent of any officer of the United States, and that every means in the power of those in authority was used to prevent the soldiers from engaging in the affair. Our officers employed every precaution to prevent the carrying away or destruction of property, and seized all goods brought acrops the river. Not only did the officers of our Government discountenance the raid, but refused to help it many way. The Commission was unable to implicate any United States officer in the affair- At the urgent request of the proper authorities of the Republic 01 Mexico, troops were sent to Bagdad to preserve order, and their presence alone prevented promiscuous pillaging. in no other way were our offioiala concerned in nffaif! at Bagdad, NEWS OF THE DAY. .

The religious services were conducted by Rev. N. Head, of the Virginia Conference: after which. Rev. Bishop Early addressed the Conference, stating that they had taken a stand independent of tho Northern branch of the church, and that there were evidence; of their being successful as an organization in their new church relations. He alluded in feeling terms to the trials of the ministers, many of whom were compelled to work at manual labor for their sustenance during the past four years; and he was thankful that now they had brighter prospects, although, even since they had been at the Conference, some oi the churches had beon wrested from then;. After paying a tribute to the people of Alexandria for their kindness and hospitality, lie said that they (the preachers) are going to take up their crosses in the hope that Jehovah will open the way for them to work successfully. lie advised tho members not to meddle with politics—keep them out of the pulpit. None of the official bodies of the Church South have meddled with politics. They can claim their rights of citizenship and do all they arc able to accomplish to restore the peace of the country. Ho had taken the amnesty oath.- and intended to wait on President Johnson and ask him to restore tho churches which have been wrested from them. In conclusion, he prayed that they, while enjoying their rights of citizenship, would not get into the political arena, and never allow political questions to enter the pulpit, but use their efforts for the advancing of the cause of Christ upon tho earth, as did the fathers of Methodism.

REIMBURSEMENT TO THE CONSUL AT BLKTA. Mr. ( handler made a favorable report on tho bill to reimbu-3o Mr. Wilson, United States Consul at Bahia for his property destroyed by a riot. Mr. Harris would ask for an explanation of this bill. Mr. Chandler said that while tho pirate Florida wa< in the harbor of Bahia a mob in the night attacked the residence of Mr. Wilson and destroyed his library and other property: that Mr. Wilson had proved himself a brave and loyal man, and was entitled to compensation. Mr. Grimes said the Senate should pause before acting in this matter. Much property had been destroyed by mobs in this city, Baltimore and .New l ork, and they might be called on to pay for it. .Mr. Ciark said that the Committee on Claims had recently made an adverse report in the case of a woman whose propertj had been destroyed by tho rebels at Norfolk, because she had given valuable information to the U.

The regular order of the day being tho joint resolution fixing the basis of representation was taken up, upon which Mr. Hendricks, of Indiana, was entitled to the floor. Mr. Hendricks said that the boast of tho people of the Umted States were that they were in tho enjoyment, of constitutional liberty. Our Constitution was made by men well qualified for tho work. No one questioned that. The Fathers of the Republic met and formed a government, under which for threequarters of a century we had lived and prospered as no people had prospered before. A war came in 1861, a war most unfortunate; and now, sir, after a war against no common enemy, in which the men of the North hero fought against the men of the South, when wo havo learned to hate each other as 110 people hated it is proposed to amend the Constitution. Eleven States were absent from our councils, and yet the men of the North propose to make a constitution for whole the country. The Committee on Reconstruction was appointed solely to enquire into the condition of the late Confederate States, and had given them no power to enquire into any other question but whether the representatives of Southern States should bo admitted into this and tho other hall of Congress. Passing from this duty the Committee had seen proper to report amen dm its to the Constitution. Mr, Fessenden — I Tbe Senator is very muoh mistaken. The House of Representatives referred a resolution introduced by one of my colleagues in that body (Mr. Blaine) to tho Committee, and it is weil known that 110 matter how a Committee may be organized, it can report on any subject which is referred to it. Mr. Hendricks—This is not a Committee of the House or of the Senate, but of both bodies, arid neither can add to its jurisdiction but by join: resolution. Mr. Fessenden—The custom has always been different. It is every day practice. Mr. Ilendrieks eaid, if it wuh tho pr notice, he aid not believe in it, and it should be abolished. The two bodies had been made separate and independent by the Constitution, and they could not even alludo to the action of the House in this body. 'J'ho purity of legislation required it. lie would now speak of the first of tho propositions which had been offered. It came from the Senator from Massachusetts, (MI. Suumcr), and proposed to apportion representatives, according to the number of male citizens over twenty-one years of age, qualified to act as electors for tho most numerous branch of the State Legislatures, and no opposition had been offered to it, until its effect was shown by a speech made in the oihcr House (Mr. Blaine's) New England would lose too much by it, and now not a man was in favor of it. Ho tuen discussed at length tho proposition to base representation on voters, declaring that it was a question of party policy, the object being to secure tho permanent predominance of the Republican party, and especially of the New England States. He then spoke of tho plan of tho President, and said lie knew no more of it than what he saw in the papers, lie was not of the President's party, but ho did give his support to his plan. Ilis policy was not under the war power, Mr. Wade—Would tho President have power to appoint a Governor for Indiana? And if not, why for those States if they aro still in tho Union? Mr. Hendricks —Of course the President has no power to appoint a Governor for Indiana, but in chose States </< facto governments had for a space taken tho place of the de jure governments. Mr. Howe asked what right had the Senator to assume that tho people who elected Governor Orr were dissatisfied with Governor Magrath, and as according to the Senator's opinions these States were intact in form, what right existed to remove Magrath. Mr. Hendricks said he would not be diverted from his argument. That question was before the Supreme Court, ile did not tnink it fair to interrupt a Senator to say something smart or sharp. Mr. Howe—No, no, Mr. President. Mr. Hendricks—l refuse to be interrupted any further. Mr. 11. read from tho resolutions of Congress and the proclamations of Mr. Lincoln, that the war was only for the restoration of the Union. Secretary Seward had announced tho passage of the slavery amendment by tho votes of the Southern Legislature?, and only the other day, i thad been declared that only under that amendment had Congress the power to pass the Freedmen's bill, <fcc. Was it right to exclude these States from all representation, and yet pass law? affecting them which, it was acknowledged, could not bo enacted but for their action? He then spoke of the desire for vengeance wfcieh seined to possess the ininds of certain Senators, and alluded to the blood-letting letter of Senator Chandler in 1861. The Senator from Oregon wanted these people punished. What did he or his people know about the war ? Tho sound of the cannon had not overreached that far Pacific slope. His colleague was not willing fur these States to come back, "until the traitors met the felon's doom." Why this clamor for more blood when these people were on their very knees before theiu ? Mr. Howard said ho would like to know upon what grounds the Senator charged honorable gentlemen on this floor with thirsting for blood. He (Mr. Howard) had brought in a resolution calling for the trial of Jefferson Davis, who had been charged by tbe Secretary of W.r witfi complicity m the assassination of President Lincoln. He asked the Senator, and ho wanted an answer, whether he would bring Jefferson Davis to trial for his crimes ? Mr. Hendricks said if he was an officer of the Government, charged with the execution of the laws, and believed that the charges made by the Senator against Jefferson Davis wero true, he would bring him to trial, and if found guilty by a oourt having the proper jurisdiction, he would execute the sentence of the law. even if it was death. Mr. Howard —The Senator admits that he would tako blood himself, and upon what grounds has ha tho assurance to charge other gentlemen here with thirsting for it? Mr. Hendricks—Mr. President, the Senator has used u word Wilich is not for the Senate. lie asks upon what ground have I the assurance. Sir, if he was twice as old as ho U, I would fling the word back in his face. [Applause and hisses.] Ido what is right,and have discussed this question in a fair manner. I was alluding to the remarks of my colleague just now. The President had suffered mcro wrongs than any of them. Andrew Johnson had been an outcast from his home for two years: had been reviled and persecuted, and yet he could be kind and forgiving and they could not. In conclusion, he drew a picture of the happiness and prosperity which would attend a united country, and tho assurance it would give to foreign nations that we could not be trifled with. The discussions of this Congress would form the most important pages of tho country's history, and their decision would be the most momentous since the foundation of the Government. lie exhorted them to extend the hand of brotherly friendship to those who had once been in accord with them. Why could they not let these States come in? [Laughter on the floor.) Had they not guarantees enough? As for himself, he should do all he could under his duty for their restoration. Mr. Chandler said the Senator from Indiana had referred to him as having written a letter in 1861. lie had been arraigned before on this subject. He been arraigned by the traitor, John O. Breckinridge, und after it that traitor went out of these halls into the rebel army % lie had been arraigned by another Senator from Kentucky, and by other traitors on this floor. He had written that letter and he stood by it. A Democratic traitor was in the Presidential chair, Democratic traitors were in all the offices. The Democratic party had ordained that tho Union should be destroyed. If that Senator was willing to go down to posterity on his record, so was he, (Mr. C.) What was the condition of the country at that time ? A Democrat c mob was drilling here every night, under tho name of the American rifles, to break un the Government. The Democratic traitor. Robert E. Lee. was in the War Department. He had written a letter to the Governor of his btate, that if the Union was t 0 be preserved, blood must be let. He knew he would live in history after the Senator and his party had d 9s n . t(J infamy. (Applause and hisses.) The Chair (Mr. Pomeroy) stated that these demonstration of applause and disapprobation had become too frequent. Ihey had been repeatedly checked, and if persisted in, the galleries would be cleared. On motion of Mr. Trumbull, it was resolved that when the Senate adjourn, it he to meet on Monday. The Senate then went into Executive Session, and after a short time spent therein adjourned. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. REIMBURSEMENT TO LOYAL STATES. Mr. Blaine, from the select committee on the subject, reported a bill to reimburse tho loyal States for expenses incurred in suppressing tho rebellion. It was ordered to be printed, and recommitted. Mr. Ferry, of Mich., introduced a bill to exempt the Gettysburg National Monument Association from taxation. Referred. Mr. Baldwin, of Mass.. offered a resolution that the Committee on the District of Columbia be instructed to inquire into the expediency of repealing the act passsed Aug. 5,1864. relating to the paving of certain streets in the city of Washington. Agreed to. _ _ , , THANKS TO MR. BANCROFT. Mr. Washburne, of 111., from the committee on the subject, reported that they had placed the resolutions ot Congress, of thanks to Hon. George Bancroft for his recent oration, in his bands. Mr. Bancroft replies that be values the distinguished compliment contained in the resolutions, and complies with the request to furnish a copy of his address. The correspondence was ordered to be printed. Mr. Rogers, of N. J., asked the gentleman to print Drcd Scott decision with Bancroft's oration in order that both sides might be beard. Mr. Washburne. of 111., said that the Drcd Scot* case had been finally decided, and there was no oce. sion to renew the controversy. Mr. Wentworth. of Illinois—And the Dred Scott decision died with its author. Mr. Laflin, from the Committee on Printing, reported on the resolution heretofore referred, and in favor of purchasing one thousand copies of the work entitled the "Memorial Record of the National Tribute to Abraham Lincoln, together with tho address of Mr. Bancroft." Disagreed to. PAYMENT TO CAVALRYMEN FOR HORSES LOST IN THE WAR. On motion of Mr. BromweP, of Illinois, a resolution was adopted instructing the Committee on Military Affairs to inquire into tho cxpedienev of providing by law for payment to non-commissioned officers, musicians and privates, who served in tho volunteer cavalry during the late war. for horsefurnished by the Government t , 1 lost without the fault of the soldier. Mr. Lawrence, of Ohio, introduced a bMI providing for the punishment of any person for throwing cars Irom the track. Also, a bill to establish United States Revenue courts; which were referred. PENNSYLVANIA CONTESTED ELECTION CASE. Tne House then took up the contested election case of Cofforth versus Koontz, of the 16th district of Pennsylvania. Neither party is a sitting member. Ine majority report of tho Committee on Elections states that neither claimant has any prima facie right to a seat in the House under the Governor's proclamation. The certificate of tho return judges transmitted by Mr. Cofforth a? required by law, being the official certificate of his e'cction, which, ; n the omission apparent on the face of th~ Governor's proclamation, would seem tp, prxma facie, entitle him to the seat. The Committee say the certificate of Mr. Koontz being signed by persons not legal return judges, is wholly illegal and void. The minority report is in favor of Mr. Koontz (Republican). Mr. Upson, of Michigan, spoke at great length, entering fully into details in support of the majority report. Mr. Paine, of Wisconsin, replied on behalf of tbe minority, and contended that Mr. Koontz was clearly entitled to the seat. The subject was then postponed till Monday. Mr. Orth, of Indiana, asked but failed to obtain 1 avo to introduce a constitutional amendment, prohibiting any person who has held an office under the so-called Confederacy from ever holding any office or receiving any emolument from tho Government of tiio United States. On motion of Mr McKee, of Kentucky, a resolution was referred to tho Committee on Foreign Affairs, calling on the Stato Department, for any information as to General McDowell's order, issued Nov. l i, 1865, relative to the prohibition of the transportation ot munitions of war into Mexico. Adjourned. FROM WASHINGTON. PEBT3 OP THE LOYAL STATES. w ASHINGTON. Feb. 16.—The report mado to tho House to-day by Representative Blaine, of Maine, from the Select Committee, on the debts of the loyal States, includes data upon tho subject from all the States excepting California, Oroßon and Nevada The sum total ot such debt", ®o far aa fl a ccrtaiaod, is $467,954,364. The reports of Governors of States were not oxact or in full but approximate, and it is believed that the total amount is not leas than $475,- 000,000. The dohts of tho States as reportod aro us follows: Maine, $12,632,580; New Hampshire, $13,125,000; \ ermont. $8.806.759: Massachusetts. $47,809,827 : Rhode Island, $6,500,772; Connecticut, $17,386,151: New York, $111,005,953: New Jersey, $26,786,421; Pennsylvania, $53,527,395; Delaware. $1,140,000; Maryland, $8,656,448; Western Virginia, $2.00030-'t; Ohio. $64,867,813; Indiana, $22,334,967: Illinois, SBO.- 000,000: Michigan. $12,000,000; Wisconsin, $12,240,795; Minnesota, $2,518,361; lowa, $2,200,000; Missouri, $9,446,575; Kentucky, $2,15(1,537; Kansas. SBIB,OOO. This does not include the amount, raised by State taxation or l>y individuals Tho committee recommend a reimbursement of States in part upon the basis of tho proportions of men furnished by such State. It was deemed too burdonsomo to tho general Government to require more than a fractional reiin burseraent, which would not impair the national credit. Twenty-five per cent, of the average expenditure throughout the loyal States, or $55 for each man furnished, is recommended. This would produce the amounts as set forth in the following bill: Whereas, the State? that furnished troops to the Union army during the late war were subjected to very heavy expenses, amounting in tho aggregate to $475,010,000, alarge proportion of which has assumed the form of oppressive debt, and whereas thw entire outlay was made for the common cause of the Union, and therefore constitutes an equal claim on the common Treasury cf the Nation, therefore he itenactedby the Senate and House of Representatives of America in Congress assembled, that there shall he reimbursed by tho United States to each of the States that furnished troops to the Union army and also to tho several Territories and the District of Columbia, n sum equal to tiftv-five dollars tor each man duly enlisted into tho military or naval service ot the United States during the lato war, the total number boing reduced to a uniform standard of three years servic viz:—To the State of Maine for 566 595 men. $3,112,725; to tho State of' New Hampshire for 30.827 men, $1,695,485, to the State of Vermont t> 29,052 men, $1,597,860; to tho State of Massachusetts for 124 844 men. $6,811,420; to the State of Rhode Island for 1, ,BiO men, $9&U290: to tho fctato of Connecticut for oilmen. $2...

In response to an application to-day Secretary McCulloch has decided that no general permit can be granted to importers of hides, and that before a cargo can be removed from a vessel undoubted evidence must be produced that the hides have not been taken from animals that have died from the effects of the cattle scourge. The Reconstruction Committee, it is said, will soon report in favor of admitting tiio Tennessee members, — A pretended assistant assessor at Pithole, Pa., has collected much money by taking bribes for promised low assessments. The victims did not dare to complain. —The musicians in tho orchestra of the Roy al Op era of Paris lately struck for higher salaries. Instead of leaving their places they agreed to play pianiasima, so that hardly a note was audible, aud the effect was laughable enough. They obtained the advance demanded. The Fenians in Ireland are manufacturing pikes. The London Examiner says: "What would be thought of a people bent on revolt who busily employed themselves in the manufacture of bows and arrows? and really bows and arrows may in present circumstances hare the advantage over pikes, for the arrow is a missile, though a poor one. Here they are where they were in 1798. and there is not a head tuuong thetu but the pike bead," The News from Europe. FRANCE, MEXICO AND UNITED STATES. THE FRENCH "YELLOW BOOK."

FRANCE AND THE UNITED STATES —THE "YELLOW BOOK/' Tho official "Yellow Book," containing the diplomatic correspondence of flic hreach government with foreign powers, was laid before the Coups Legislatif on the 2Uth ult. The despatches exchanged between brancc and the United States on the subiect of Mexico arc in conformity with tht declarations'made in the Emperor's speech at tho opening of thr session, and in the account of the condition of th„ injure. A dispatch from M. Drouyn dc lMTuye to tho .Marquis dc Montholon. dated January 9th, replying to a.communication from Mr. Seward, dated December loth, alter announcing that this reply had been subilie Fmperor, expresses the conviction that AU (Bvwgonce of views between the two cabinets is the resui of an erroneous appreciation of the intentions of 1' ranee." Drouyn dc l'Huys proceeds to state that France seeks the realization of no ambitious ideas, and adds: A\OW that there is a regular government in Mexico, the legitimate object of our expedition will be attained. VVe are endeavoiog, while satisfying our inferes.i ana our dignity, to make arrangements which will enubie us to consider the mission of our army in Mexico as terminated." t despatch of M. Drouyn de l'Huys, dated oanuary 2D, 1866. and to the French Minister at aching too. relates a conversation of the former with Mr. Bigriow. On that occasion M. de Lhuys ueclined ill official controver-y upon the measures rak< n by the Einneror Maximilian, stating that he eouid only receive Mr. Bigelow's communications on that subject as simple information. This reservation establhhed, the French Minister observed, in the course of conversation, that the measures pointed out were of a purely administrp.tive order, and did not appear to him to constitute any of those exceptional derogations that might perhaps sometimes justify a government in interfering in the interior alums of a neighboring state. lie could not admit that the Federal Government, not wishing to recognize as legitimate the de facto government of Maximilian, and considering ft illusory to address itself t< Juarez, had any ground to apoij to France, in order to escape from this embarrassment, and request explanations from her relative t<> acts emu rating from the sovereign authority of a foreign government. M. Drouyr.de l'Huys continues: "IV o return to the principle of non-intervention, and from the moment wo accept it a? our rule of con duct, our interest and honor require us to demand it? equal application by all. Relying upon tho equitable spirit of the Washington Cabinet, wo expect from it the assurance that the American people wiii conform to the law of non-intervention, which they invoke by maintaining a strict neutrality with regard to Mexico. When you shall have informed me of the resolution of the American Government in this matter, I shall be in a position to acquaint ;ou with the result oi our negotiations with the Emperor Maximilian for tho return of our troops." SPAIN—CHILIAN CRUSF.RS In tho sitting of the Committee of the Cortes on January 27th, on the address to the Queen, Scnor Cassatnera requested permission to bring forward a protest in favor of the temporal power of the Pope.

The ordinance provides, however, that it shall be specified in, and as a part of such subscription, that the money shall not' be payable until tho commissioners of Washington county, Md., shall have subscribed for three thou sand shares of said capital stock, and that the mon. arising from the subscription by the city shall he expended in the construction of tho Western Maryland Railroad from its present terminus at Union Bridge to the line of division between the counties of Freil crick and Washington. It further provides that tho subscription shall bo paid in such instalments and at such times as tho same shall be called for by tin President and Directors of therailroad, provided they shall not have power to call for more than $15,000 in any one month, and as each call shall be made upon the Mayor ho shall immediately notify such call to tho Commissioners of Finance, who shall, wilhinun< ! week after such notification, issue certificates oi stock to the railroad company for tho amount of such call, bearing interest at the rate of 6 per centredeemable in Juiy, 1890. Tho ordinance was read and ordered to ho printed. After the adjournment the members of the Council assembled in the r irst Branch chamber tojhearthe remarks lrom a committee of gentlemen from Vlash ington county, Maryland, interested in tho extension of the Western Maryland railroad to that county Daniel Harvey, President of the Second Branch of the Council, was called to the chair, and stated the object of the meeting. P. 11. Irv/ia, President of the Western Maryland railroad, returned thanks for the courtesy of the Council in giving them a hearing, and introduced Mr. Kepler, of Washington, who presented a communication from the County Commissioners of Washington, in which they state that some time since they made a subscription of $150,900 to the capital stock of the Western Maryland railroad, upon condition that the city of Baltimore subscribe $200,000 to the capital stock. Their action had been legalized at the recent special session of the Maryland Legislature, and they now asked the co-operation of Baltimore so as to enable them to further aid this enterprise which promised to much of mutual benefit. They also set forth many of the advantages to bo gained by the construction of this road to Washington county, and finally to the coal fields of Allegany. Mr. Kepler, in a few remarks, also urged action by the city, as ho did notthink such a course was likely to entitle them to tho appellation of "monomaniacs" upon tho subject. Addresses were also made by Mr. Brumbaugh, A. K. Seyster, Mr. Grovo, and Judge Wason, of the delegation, in behalf of the citizens of Washington county. It was stated that this is the third largest wheat producing county in the United States; that upwards of 200,000 barrels of flour are annually manufactured for exportation from the county; that minerals of all kinds, except gold, abound in the greatest quantities within its limits; that coal could be brought to this city for nearly $2 less per ton than a* present, and that upwards of $200,000,000 worth of goods are annually imported into the county for consumption, not one-fourth of which are purchased in Baltimore because of the want of facilities for transportation. Various other considerations were named why Baltimore should make this movement towards securing a large and valuable trade, which legitimately belonged to her, but which for yen r , past had sought other outlets because of the g reat difficulty in reaching here by rail. May;, r Chapman, in conclusion, was highly complimented for the decided stand he had ttLkcn in favor of the extension of the W eatery, Maryland Railroad, and about eight o'clock the meeting adjourned. LARCENY. —On Tuesday last a colored man named Thomas Garner, was taken into custody by officer Ilynson, of the county, charged with breaking into a house and stealing therefrom a revolver, tho property of Dr. Prentiss, of Govanstown.

THE STATE TF.MPERA#CE CONVENTION.—The State Temperance Convention, which was announced to commence in this city on the 22d instant, has been postponed until Tuesday, April 10th. PERSONAL. —Madame Le Vert and her daughters, of Mobil*, are in town and stopping at the Eutaw Beuie. THREE CENTS. PROPOSED CHARGE IS THE MANSER OP OPENING BTRKETS. An important ordinance was last evenine reported the First Branch of the City Council, by Mr Foreman, of the Twentieth ward, which provides , ll "ax Court shall he relieved of the duties which have heretofore devolved upon it in connection with the open in? of streets, by the appointment of three commissioners to serve at a fixed salary. In making an assessment for the opening of any street, only those persons will bo assessed for benefits who reside upon the line of the street, ar.d the remainder of the expense is to be paid by the city.

Phelps for interesting public documents. AMFSKMEN'ra. THE MILTONTAN TABLEAUX AT THE MAKVLAKD INSTITUTE.—AS yet there is no abatement of interest ill this exhioition, though it would seem as though every person in the city must have visited it already. F.very evening the nail is fiiiej to its utmost capacity, and no better evidence of its merits could be offered than the fact that our ve-y best citizens, accompanied by their wives and families, are its patrons. Illustrating, as it does in a most vivid manner, tba grand conceptions of one of the most celebrated of poets, and calculated to inspire the mind with sublime ideas of the creation, it attracts the attontion of a class of tho community whose sense of proprietv and right and wrong, would deter them from attending the common shows that ars trumpeted through the country. A refined andmoral exhibition is a means of publia instruction as well as innocent amusement. It improves the public taste and removes prejudices, and by presenting at a glance what cost years ofstudy, and effort, and skill, lifts tho mind at onee to ihc noblest conceptions of genius. Many of the scenes possess a considerable merit in an artistic point of view, and all of them at onca direct the mind to the contemplation of tho sublime theme which inspired Milton. In this respect their attractiveness is unsurpassed. The rebol angels, led by the Arch Fiend, are represented a* making war upon the hosts of Heaven, led by the Almighty, and finally defeated, are cast out of Heaven and thrust down to Hell, and even here they resolve to continue the warfare. Satan departs from the infernal regions, after having erected the palace ol Pandemonium, and traverses the realms of Chao3 until he meets an angel from whom he learns of the Creation, and finally discovers the earth, and enters the gardens of Eden, where he accomplishes his diabolical purpose, and causes the fall of man. The Bible account of the Creation is vividly represented, and the landscape views of Eden are charming. Some of the scenes, in which the sun. and moon actually rise and set, are marvels of mechanical and artistic ingenuity and skill. All wo could wish of scenes is, that the stars might be set to represent the constellations, which would greatly enhance the pleasure of the views to ihosswho have studied the geography of the heavens. An exhibition will be given this evening and every evening hereafter until further notice, and a matineo this afternoon, at 3 o'clock. Doors open at THF. OPERA.— The operatic season closes this evening. with Mozart's great opera of "Don Giovanni,'* which will bo given with a powerful ca*t, including Johannsen.
