1 ►earing a rod, and auotbcr with him who
had a tabic-cloth, which, afier they had both

kneeling again they both retired. Then came
two others, one with a salt cellar uud a plate
of bread; when they kneeled as the others
had done aud placed what they had brought

last came an uuuiArried lady (we are told
she was a Countess,) aud along with a mar
ried one, bearing a tasting-knife; the former
was dressed in white silk, who when she had
prostrated herself three times in the most
graceful manner, approached the table and
rubbed the plates with bread and salt, with as
much awe as if the Queen had been present.
When they had waited there a little while
the yeomen of the guard entered bareheaded,
clothed in scarlet, with a golden rose upon
their backs, bringing in at each turn a course
of twenty-four dishes, served in plate, most
ot it gilt; the dishes were received by a
gentleman iu the same order thev were

the lady taster gave to each of the guard a
mouthful to eat of the particular dish he had
brought tor fear of poison. During the time

The magnitude of events that have oc

Protect thf. Hospitals. —We learn that

Hospital was stripped of everything. This
is very unfortunate. The hospitals through

are yet to pass through the country on the
way to their homes, and many will perish by
the way, unless they receive the care and at

after this matter.

There is a good deal in the Northern pa
pers about the plot to burn Philadelphia, but
the subjoined article seems to contain all the
facts, and pretty much all the speculations.
(From the Philadelphia Age of Tuesday.)
Rtunored Plot to Burn Philadelphia.
Information was received from Washing
ton on Saturday afternoon, setting forth that
there was an organized plot to lay our city
iu ashes, the same as had beer, attempted in
New York. Major Gen. Cadwakler and the
Mayoi were officially notified and toots every
precaution to guard against any such calami
ty. The various government establishments
were placed under double guard, and the
whole police force detailed for duty during
Sunday night. The hotel proprietors were
notified, aud suen measures immediately
adopted that if there had been any such de
signs meditated the incendiaries would have
been most certainly foiled.
The new-s of the alleged plot spread like
wildtire, aud wa9 announced during the af
ternoon from several church pulpits. In one
church in the Eighteenth Ward the an
nouncement caused the greatest consterna
tion. Several females fainted, and the con
gregation were dismissed. By ten o’clock
on riunday evening there' were very few who
had uot heard the news. Still a request was
made by the authorities that no mention of
the affair be made in the public prints. This
ilemaud was complied with, aud yesterday
morning, much to the astonishment of our
citizens, not a Philadelphia paper alluded to
the subject. The news would no doubt have
been excluded even to-day from the Phila
delphia press had not the silence been broken
by the New York dailies, which appeared
yesterday morning in full display, informing
the public ot the whole affair. To is of course
renders it necessary for the city papers of
to-day to state what they have learned iu
regard to the matter.
From what we can gather It seems that
th£ plot was to have been carried out on
Sunday night. As we have stated, every
necessary precaution was taken, although
the autuorities were inclined and still con
sider that there is no foundation whatever
for the report. Still howover, they acted
wisely and timely, making every arrange
ment anu preparation as if they "knew the
thing was actually to occur. One or two
suspicious individual, were arrested,and after
being subjected to a strict examination were
found to be ail right, and consequently al
lowed to depart. From the reports made by
the police and military yesterday morning,
nothing occurred duriug" the night, to verify
the belief that any such organized plot, as
stated, was really in existence. The only
thing ot a really suspicious character, and at
the present time an unexplainable mystery
that occurred, happened at the Schuylkill
Arsenal. Here, as at other government
boiklings, an increased guard was put on
duty, under the command of Captain Mo
Between 2 and 3 o’clock yesterday morn
ing a suspicious individual was discovered
lurking in the neighborhood ot the building
occupied as the knapsack department. The
fellow was hailed twice by the guard, but re
fused to answer either time. The guard then
fired two shots. The intruder retreated,
jumped a fence and got into a brick yard,
when the discharge of a pistol was heard.—
This, it i3 thought, he fired at the guard.
An attempt to cut off’ liis retreat was un
successful, aud he escaped. Whether his in
tention was to rob the place or to fire it has
not yet been ascertained. The authorities
will still continue to exercise tlia precautions
adopted on Sunday night, and if any suen
diabolical design has been concocted we
feel confident that it will just so surely be
An association has been formed here for
the purpose of erecting in this city a suitable
monument to the memory of the late Presi
dent Lincoln. The following are the officers
-wf-the association : Richard Wallacli, Mayor
of Washington, President; Crosby S. Noyes,
Secretary, and George W. Riggs, Treasurer.
It is proposed to raise for this purpuSe a sum
of at least one hundred thousand dollars by
subscriptions, to limited in amount from one
to ten dollars per individual contributor.—
Such is the general solicitude to contribute
for such a purpose, that it is uot doubted ti e
amount requisite can be promptly raised, and
the monument erected Immediately. Per
eons throughout the country desiring to con
tribute are invited to scnd theircoutrlbutloua
to the treasurer of the association.
La3t week Gen. Patrick, Provost Marshal
General at Richmond, summoned Mr. Smith,
of the Whig, before him, and ordered him at
once to remove from his paper the Virginia
coat of arms.

No. 53. j
Hereafter, no private buildings, except sufh ns aro
abandoned or coufiscab'e, will Tie used for miNtarvor
Government purposes within this Department. It D
believed that there are, at all the Military Posts, suffi
cient public buildings and abandonetr or confiscable
private ones, to answer all the needs of the service.
The use of buildings owned by loyal persons subjects
the Government to claims for rent, and thus becomes
an unjustifiable source of expense.
Each Post and’ District Comm. nder will forthwith
report to these Headquarters, all buildings used by
hlmseif or the officers of his command, with mil state*
meets of the location and size of sued buildings, the
number of rooms In each and the name ol the owner
or owners, with such information as he can obtain aa
to their residence and loyalty or disloyalty.
