Fast driving. --The danger to pedestrians from the practice of fast driving has grown so imminent as to attract the attention of the military authorities, and cause them to take measures to preserve the lives of our citizens, endangered by the wrecklessness alike of white and black jebus. All people here about will rejoice to know that the dangerous practice has been interdicted, and orders have been issued by Gen. Winder that all white offenders shall be arrested, and all colored ones strikingly reminded of the impropriety of their conduct.

lly in all their peculiar glory in the lower courts, the advocates of dubious and uncertain rights, and who as such obtain from the follies, vices, and crimes of their fellows the means of a precarious subsistence, and who, entirely innocent of law, give birth to the most astounding legal propositions, the coinage of their own ingenious heads. Unluckily the Bill of Rights, Constitution, or some other paper, has given these gentry a sort of constructive right to badger witnesses, and bore courts and juries to a degree that would seem insufferable to ordinary comprehension. It seems a pity that Gen. Winder did not have the power to draft into the army some of the hundreds of worthless characters now in this city. Were the legal limbs included in such a conscription, we are sure that the Commanding General would see at once the propriety of putting them in the front ranks as dangerous weapons. If as dangerous to the enemy as they are to their clients, they would soon kill them off.
suffering the terrors of famine in consequence of his ill-considered proclamation, and to beseech him to modify it, at least so far as the groceries are concerned. Resolved, That another committee be appointed to visit the hospitals, to inquire whether there are not more men there now than at any previous period; which if found to be the case will prove that no whiskey at all is more injurious than a little once in a while. Resolved, That another committee be appointed, to visit Gen. Winder, and ask him if this law was really made for gentlemen and vagabonds, or for vagabonds alone. Resolved, That we deeply sympathize, as brothers in affliction, with the various barkeepers, grocers, and other small dealers in whiskey, whose business has thus been foiled at a single blow; and that, as a mark of our respect, copies of these proceedings shall be sent to them, if living, and to their assigns, if dead. After some suggestions as to whether it would be proper to make spee
Mayor's Court. --The proceedings of this court on Saturday were not especially interesting for extent or variety. Bill Scott, free negro, arrested for feloniously receiving $30 from Elizabeth Brown, was committed for further examination.--Frederick Eheart was fined $5 for employing his dray without a license.--John Fant, a soldier, charged with drunkenness and an attempt to act as policeman, was sent to Gen. Winder.--Martin Sullivan and Fred. Nunnally were fined $3 for disorderly conduct and attempting to throw stones in the street — Daniel K. Whittaker, was summoned up for refusing to give the list of his taxable property to the City Assessor, when called on to do so. The case was continued.--One man was summoned up for "for running twelve wagons on the street," but the case was continued at his request.
The Price of marketing. --We intimated a few days since that the price of marketing would soon be regulated by the Provost Marshal, and prove a death blow to huckstering and extortioners. We learned yesterday that Gen. Winder would soon have the matter at tended to at an early day.
Sundries. --Thomas Jones, member of Caskie's Rangers, for some days under arrest for gtting money by false pretences, was sent before Gen. Winder by the Mayor yesterday. Wm. Hutchinson, who was charged with violently entering Dan Murphy's house, with the supposed design of assaulting that individual, had his case continued until to-day. William Irwin, a lad, charged with purloining $29 from some unknown person, was sent to jail in default of surety for his good behavior.
Would not work. --A number of persons employed at Col. Duncan's lithographic establishment, on Government work, hoping to increase their profits, yesterday refused to strike another lick unless their wages were considerably raised. In recording the sequel the reader will remember that these persons were getting good pay at the time. They slept, by order of Gen. Winder, in Castle Godwin last night.
In prospect. --We understand that General Winder has it in contemplation to issue an order prescribing the price by which certain articles of groceries, dry goods, cotton and woolen cloths, shall be sold. The outrageous exactions of holders have necessitated this order. Woolen cloths that used to sell here at about one dollar and fifty cents per yard, and cost fifty cents to get up, is now sold at $10.50 per yard. Cotton cloth, that cost perhaps three cents per yard to get up, is sold for 62 cents. Similar swindles might be mentioned in the grocery line. The General commanding this department will do the people an essential service, and will be sustained by public sentiment, in putting the "heavy hand" on all extortioners, in whatever "line" they may operate.
