EVENING STAR. N LOCAL ISTHLLIGESCE. Vegetatf)!i.?The concluding lecture ot? vegetation ?v delivered at the Smithaonian, by Prof. Asa Grav, oa last Friday evening, before a Urge and attentive audience. Mr tJray devoted tuii lecture to still fur* ther illustration of the relation of plants to the ?un; the vegetable was viewed a* a mv chine for 'rar.?forming mineral into organic matter, or earth and air into food, through an agency eat in operation by the eun When exposed to the sun, the foliage evolves oxygen gu. which ie an unerring index of the form ation of organic matter. Thia was shown bv comparing water, the food of the plant, with its fabric and general products?the difference in the two being represented by the oxygen gaf g-ven off by growing plants?thus vegeta tion serves to purity the air we breathe In every step of their growth, plants withdraw a portion of carboni- acid gas from the sir; when, if it aonmulaed, it would become del eterious to amm.l Jife, and give back oxygen, ? the element so need;ul to animal lifa. Thus the plants, while they purify *h? air, at the lime time tran-form air?water being a part of i'?into f od ; and this they do enly under the influence of the sun. lhe v*it amount of matter whioh hai b*?n organiied by plants, was then considered, in k J^the present vegetation, in deoomposing vege table matter, in m~uld. poat. and coal, and in the whola extent animal kingdom. lie explained what becomes of all this or ganized matter by showing the changes it un ,-ierg ea?firs-, in the plant itself after life has departed; then in the living vegetable; then when transferred as food to the animal. He then illustrated the reversion of organ ised matter, by decay, into the original inor ganic state, in which the plant took the mate rial ; then the decompositions which take place in living plants and animals, the mate rials in all being given back to mineral state in the form of carbonic acid, water, and acu mocia. vix: in the same condition the plane took them. Combustion of organic matter, as of wood *0., produces the same resul* ' De cay and many other proceses carried out in the living plant, and the respiration of .mi nuls, e shown to be equivalent tu combus tion, and to evolve just as much heal as would he evolved by the burning of the same .Mate rial , and the heat given out is absorbed by the foliage of the plant f otn the sun at the tune the matter become organised. In the plant and animal power is expended acd work is done as the mtitar decavs. Tho sua. in the production of organic matter in plants, has endowed itwitn force derived from i?e!f. which may be expended in various wayr, Bid which man variously direets. >o it is sun heat evolved by vegetable mat ter, seen in decay in hotbeds. or in fuel used to wans u*. cook .or u*. drive steam engines fjr us, <ic. In the case of wooi. the heat eame ITviii the *un a few years ago; that of coal many years ago So the light of a pine torch, ox camphene extracted from pine, re cently came f'oiu the sun. Out in coal ga<, >we light our hall to-night with sunshine stored up for this purpose by a vegetation which flouiished hundreds of years before ihc crea tion Of man It is the ssme, also, both as to the result and the source of the light, whether we bum a candle made of wax of the bayberry or cf wu made ou; of cugar by the bee, or a ta'l- w candle. or of materials made out of the herbage of the ex or sheet; whether we burn 01. ex* racted fr^m corn or feed that corn to a pig ar.d burn lard oil fbe:e is no longer room for doubt thin ani mai heat U <un heat, thai our bodies are warned b> ?uj heat, which nlso warms the earth s -urfice by direct emanation from the common source il* :t and light were then viewed as s force convertible into still other forms, among them mechanical power Every act of muscular ene gy deoompo?e? a portion of the muscle which food resupp'ics by the incorporation of new material. The lecturer closed with an original argu ment against materialise?against tb? idea that rn^t er itself may be so orgxnited as to think F-?r if even the forces which the wil' ??auses the body to exert be not forces inherent in the matter of the body, but derived from the sun. much more must the power or princi ple that wills be distinut from lhe body. If the one may be traced back to the sun, itself a created thing, may not the power that thinks ai d wills claim a higher origin, even in the nnderived fountain and source of thought and will ? Tut Ballet ?The Rou* ett*. on re-opening ?he National Theatre on Saturday night last, were received throughout their entire per formance* with such applause as is rarely ac corded by a Washington audience Their beautiful ballet ot the evening, the G'selle, wjs never better perfomed. Caroline, Ade laide, and Theresine. created each a perfect fu ror in thoir rtspecrive parts, while Clementine, too, came in for a fair share of the thunder of I the graiilied audicLce. Nothing in the way * of ballet, ever seen in our city, exceeded the graee of Caroline, the el^gmce of The esine. or the piquant agility of their charming sister eased in male attire, who is by long o>ds the best formed woman ever saw on tho s'age. Corby and Siollosy iu the after pi?cc, *ej t the house in a roar of laughter, both being c >mic pantominis's without equals elsewhere in the United States Corby is really the finest com e dancer we ever saw ; and, a trav eled friend, an enthusiastic connoisseur of the ballet assures, at this moaient, without his equal on the Parisian boards. His " makicg up'' is exquisite in its way ; while his j an'o unme ian*t to be described with the pen The man who can witnets it without a laugh, must have nerves of steel. To-night they re produce Giselle, and for the last time, with the side-splitting afterpiece of the barber duellist, Frisac. A Nov a i.

Night Police or the tfEcoftD Watn:?We have been urged by several oiti sens to request your particular attention to the ro?dyi~iu which occurs nearly every night betwean miduight and day break, on ? street, > between Inirteenth and the tneatre, to the grievous ann--yanc? of all dwellers in that vi emit/.

The Board of Managers of the Union Choir Association. baring hid the (abject of a ma fi:al son rent ion for some time pari under oon siderati< n, have decided upon holding such a convention in this eitj. which will take plaoe aa aoon at the plana <*an be felly matured Circulars will be addre.:aod to tbe various musical societies throughout the United States, inviting them to a participation in it; and we may confidently expect a large at tendance Such a convention will ro doubt reocive tbe countenance of our citissna of all claaeee; for, not only will it be a aouree of gratification to musical circles particularly, but generally interesting and instructive to those whose tastes are -fhat way inclined, hut wboie a roc at i ens debar them from partieipa-1 ting in this delightful art The plans are jet in a crude and unfinished state, but a* soon aa completed we shall spread them before our readera. Professor I B. Woodbery, of New York, will be the lecturer and director on the occaaion, and tbe aeasion will continue three or four days. Much go^d is anticipated to spring from this movement, aa it will tond greatly to improve the style of church musio pa.ticolarly, besides awakening an interest in regard to this h'therto much : eglected accom plishment. The committee having the matter in charge?Messrs. Potter, F. A. Tucker, Thoa. MeGill, Sheriff, and Wood?are energetic and indefatigable gentlemen, and we hope, in a short time to give a more minute statement. The " Bla< k 8was "?We understand that at tbe urgent solicitation of numerous pastors of churches in this city, among them the Rev. Geo W Samson Rev. Dr. Smith, and Rev A G. Carothers. Professors Scheel and Fisoher have ooncluded to assie; in the concerts which will be given on Tue-day, Wednesday and Thursday evening* of this week, in the Fif teenth street Presbyterian ehurch, to liquidate the debt incurred in the erection of that edi fi:e. By reference to our advertising col umns, it will be seen that the " Black Swan " is to be the principal attraction ; and, from the celebrity she has acquired, both ia this country and in Europe, ro doubt tbeso con certs will p'ove profitab'o enough to attain the objeet in view We derstand, further, that tbe mu-uc will be c i high order, and that the choir attached t he church are ca pable r! performing the ). at difficult mrslc, with credit to themselves jvd satisfaction to ' th .se who may attend. Trinity Church ?There was a large con gregation assembled in this sacred edifice yes terday morning. The Rev. Mr. Cummings took for his text: "Am I my brother's keep er" From this sentence, he showed that there was a responsibility attached to every one of us, and that it i? character that c?n?ti | tutes responsibility The influence of char acter, be said, was the weightiest a'l influ euees If a Demosthenes were to ascend the pulpit, and preach without character, who ?v< uld be influenced thereby ? The preacher ?hen cited various per-one to whom he attri buted this excellent quality, amongat others he named Wilberfiree, upon whom he passed a high eulogium, and ranked him next to St. Paul a* a possessor of this virtue A'ao, Sir Isaac Newton, Sir Matthew Hale, Mrs. Frey. and others. His personation w.ts truly sublime, showing vasf erudition, and carrying convic tion to all his hearers. Roprrt Heller's Wonders ?This modern Cagliostro appeared on bi3 magnificent stage, on Saturday evening, before an audience that filled the amnle space of Iron Hall. All that the ci y can boast of beauty and fashion was ihere. ani such an audience, appreciating as it did, the great and apparently superhuman eff'-rts of the great a~tist before them, caused tbe adven. of Mr. Heller to be ao era in the annals of amusements in Washington. Tbe mysteries were all beautifully executed, caus ing the audience to be more and more as tounded. as each succeeding experiment wia introduced. But we were more perplexed with the secon 1 sight mystery than anything else. Tbis is something new for the reflective j?ortion of our community. But, noiuvtrrons. we are going ag*in tc-iiight. and can perhaps tell < nr readers more about it in our next im jreaaion. - CaRI'SIK SALOOS? DoDHE'8 " DoDGBIt will bo seen, by an advertisement in another column, that tbe celebrated writer, wit. and vo alist. Ossian E Dodge, late editor and pro* prietor of Dodge's Literary Museum intend! giving a concert in our eity this evening. Our cit:zens will remember that this is the same Dodge who "dodged'! into the best seat at Jen ny Lind'a first concert in Boeton, by paying for a single ticket. Since then his suc cess. both as an editor and vocalist, proves him not on y an 4 artful" but an exceedingly fuccea.-tul dodger Having had tbe pleasure of hearing his talented company on several recaaions in the North, we recommend them to all lovers of mirth and good harmony. Choice Books.?Notwithstanding the lim ited circulation of money and the many amuse ments of the day, we are happy to learn that the extensive sales of Mr. J. W Rhodes, of valuable books, at fitz^eiald a Block, No. 474 Pennsylvania avonue. was most promising on Saturday evening last and we understand it is the intention of this gentleman to continue hi* .-ales every evening during the se???ion of Congress, so that our citizens, and strangers from tbe different States, by attending his Bales, will not only be amused by tbe tonguey wit of tbe crier, but obtain rich and elegant book- at their own pricea. Mr. Kbo.Ies says he has aea.'ered literature in almost every city from Maine to Oregon, and that the intel ligent eitizens of Washington must take a dcuble dose of at least five hundred thousand volumes before the4*hof March next. His business is praiseworthy, and merts tbe pat- j ronage of the reading community, which be now receives nightly at his sale* room. Fire.?We were in error in atatmg in Sat urday'e paper, that there was no fire on the night previous. It seems about two o'clook Saturday morning, Mrs Phillipa, residing at No 341 Twelfth stree'. between M and N, was awakened by the smell of (moke in the honae, and upon examination, it wa? found that fire had got between some rafters, which being discovered early, was extinguished without much damage. The alarm made through the streets that night, waa by a neighbor, who passed down Eleventh street, but the night be ing intensely cold, did not succeed in getting out many peiaona Scniuv AacsivBirri ?Our police offi:ors h?ve been informed cf o*rtain dances 'hat oocur <<n Sabbath evening* in a portion of tbe city rue-* disorderly conduce ia nothing new.
