KVKNING STAR. local inte llige\c e. I Bocoht aid " Sold' "?At about i p m. yesterday, a crowd of two or throe hundred persons collected on Sixfi street, between D ?ad Pennsylvania avenue, attracted bj the effort# of three or four stout oolored hostlers t? *eke a hone draw. Armed with small ?witehea, they were laboring manfully to coax ? high spirited black pony " What would'nt jo," to draw a buggy. The more .hey la*h*d. the firmer pony stuck his hind heels into the crev ices of the stone pavement and bore on the breeching. The contest seemed to be one of endurance. Handkerchiefs were placed over his eyes and hi* tail was daly twisted, while all sorts of stable persuasive language was retorted to in vain, to induce pony to be rea sonable. But it was no go. The boys had a freat time, indeed, over the fun. Ibis re doubtable steed is siid to htfi been kl pat on our esteemed friend Levi Pumphrey, than whom Washington hardly holds a more famous expert in hone flesh! Though a " good 'un to look at," he teas emphatically 11 a rum 'un to co ' It struck us that be will make a cap ital *teed^ te let oat to Sunday-busters who, when hiring a horse, invariably seek to get M mueh as porsible out of him for their m iney. There was something so essentially ludicrous in the fact thst a dealer had been shockingly taken in in a horse trade?though we have no more prove bially honest and truthful man in this oommunity than the dealer aforssaii?as to make the sport on this occasion more keenly enjoyed by the bystsnders, than any thing else of the sort we ever witnessed. Tea Exhibition or the Jcriob Rbchabites. We had the pleasure, last uight, rf witnessing a rehearsal of the pieoes that George Wash lagton Tent, No. 2, intend giving on next Wednesday night, in the basement of the Sixth Presbyterian Church. Island, and among others we were muoh interested in "Jonadab, the Son of Kechab, or Washington in 1S65," a moral temperance drama that was specially written for them by a gentleman oonnected with the senior order, who takes mush interest in the tem prance movement among the juveniles. The character of the pieces are strongly drawn, and were well rendered. Altogether the oare ful training of these youths in their respec tive parts will do no discredit to their worthy Shepherd, who has the welfare of youth muon at heart; and we anticipate that on next Wedneeday night all who shall go to their exhibition, will receive many instructive les sons, and will go away much gratified. The object for whicb they give the exhibition is a worthy one?to raise means to liquidate a small debt consequent upon their organisation. We would advise all to go. andeQcourage them? especially those who wish to see youth do well, and who take interest in their moral training. Intemperance is a great curse, and we can never begin too soon with youth, in striving to stave off its blightiog and withering influences. Lbctvbe at Columbia Hall, Ac.?Dr. 3. C. Busey lectured on Thursday evening at this popular place of resort, before quite a large and intelligent audience, bis subject being the " Marriage Divorce." Th* points elabo rated were, that marriage is a divine institu tion, and cannot justly be regarded as a civil contract, to be annulled by the will or pleas ure of either or both of the parties; that its responsibilities are of the mightiest aud ut most importance, both as to time and eternity., The Doctor enforced his views by adducing scriptural and other high authorities, and dwelt with much earnestness and beauty upon the moral qualities essential to happiness in the married state The spirit of Catholicism seemed to breathe throughout the lecture,? the doctrines and opinions enunciated by the speaker being in striking conformity to those maintained by the Catholic Church upon tbe subject. On tbe whole, the lecture was a highly creditable production, and was received with much favor by the intelligent au litory. We are glad to see the new chandliers of the Library ef the Company in a blase of glory. They add mueh to tbe appearance of that handsome apartment. We were also re joiced to hear again the sweet and command mg voices of Messrs Grennup and Bonnet', who entertained the company with some fine rmgs. Railroad Car Bbake.?We eannot at this time creeent tbe statistics of the number of lives that have been sacrificed by the travel on railroads since iheir introduction Nor would we tike to do so, even if they were in our possession, for the picture would indeed be frightful. But if, in the future, these calam itiescanbe averted, as we think they can after an examination and practical demon stration of a railroad car brake constructed by Wm Lc ugh ridge of Washington county, Md., we say that those companies who fail to adopt this new improvement, should be beld ac eeuntable hereafter to the full extent of tbe law for all damages that may occur on their road. We gave a description of this invention on Wednesday las', and we recur to it to-day after satisfying ourselves of its usefulness. All who desire to see it wonld do well to call at the Hational Hotel this afternoon, at 4 o'clock, when the inventor will be present with a model and explain its principles. Mtebs A Mapioah * Cmcns ?This splen did troupe appeared at the Nstional for the second time, last night, to a fashionable bouse, and were greeted with the most enthusiastic applause throughout their performances. The Cieful riding of M'lle Kosa delighted every y, and each night increases her populsrity The witticisms, comicalities, and songs of the three clowns kept the andience in a roar , and the beautiful athletio sports of King snd Le ?m were truly surprising We advise our eitisens to go and see this cspital equestrian troupe. ?? The Ball Game Escape ?In justice to Ofioer Kimball, we are glad to be able to say, that after be heard of the escape of Irwin and Howard, he went immediately in pursuit of them, and followed tbem to Bladensburg Mr K. says he thinks he would have arrested both of them, if he bad not been knocked in the head by a man named Suit. Mr. Kimball and his friend were the securities for the ap pearance of the prisoners at the next term of the criminal court; and we regret such active and useful officers should be victimixsd in this way by pickpockets or their pimps. Fibb at Roc* Cekek Focsdebt?Abrbst or tbb Supposed Ieceediarv.?About eight o'c'.ock, last uight, Rock Creek Foundery, owned by J L Cathcarr, and occupied by Weed A Smallwood was discovered to be on Are. Tbe firemen were promptly on the spot, and succeeded in saving a considerable poTtiou 0f the building and materials. Circumstances led Offioer Hurly to saspect that tbe place bad been fired by an ineendiary, and that William King, who bad formerly worked there, was the person. He obtained a warrant and went to K ag's house and arrested him after a bard strangle, in which the officer's clothing was much torn King was taken before a ja*ice of the peace, and, efter an examination, was fully committed for trial at the next term of the Crintinal Court RewDrisa ?A number of young msn living in the Sixth and Seventh Wards, who for years have eouducted themselves with propriety, have jast begun to engage in rowdy worha stening house-, assaulting females, and creat ing riots wherever they can Last night, a number of persons were assaulted by them, end will not prosecute them on account of their respectable connections The earliest way to prevent this conduct is to break tbeir bottles A Paerxsr ?On behalf of all the good look ing bachelors, not omitting ourself, who prom nade at the Fair, we have to enter our protest against the declaration made there yesterday by a very interesting young lady, who, after having had her name wrote by Mr W.

In the evening, there wae another fall attendance, and the playing of the band, and the excellent sing ing of some young ladies, aocompanied by the piaao ferte, gate a oheerful appearance to the whole aeene. ? .

Tbb Pia.ho Forte War at the Mechanics' Institute Fair.?Editors : Perhaps the most exciting, and at the same time indec* orous controversy upon the subject of compe tition in the Fair, is that in the musical de partment, wherein, among other instruments upon which judgment is to be pronounced, the piaao fortes are of the first importance. The depositors of these instruments yesterday sent a remonstrance to the Committee of Man agement disapproving of the competency of tboae appointed to give opiniona upon ao im portant a subject. 1 be result is that some trifling change has been made in the Com mittee; but unless fair and equitable arrange ment is made, and fully competent and untn. t*rest*d persons are seleoted to fill all the posts of judges of piano fortes, the depositors will at once withdraw their instruments. Aa it is, private interest is too strongly at work to leave a doubt as to where the premi um will be awarded But let the authorities beware how they trifle with the public, by hasardingJudgments announced by interested parties.^ it ia not the piano that makea the mo?t noiae that ia the beat instrument. In conclusion, let me inform the manage ment that there ia one in thiacity whose opin ion is worth more than perhaps that of any person in the country : and the muaieal com munity will invite his judgment in spite of all authoriUtive committees. Trusting you will find a aorner for this com munication in your paper, as it is of material importance to the honor and integrity of more than one that I give the above hints. I have the honor to be, your obedient ser vant, Musicus. March 2. ? Watch Riturib.?There were no oases for trial in the guard-hi,uae this morning. There were ten lodgers in last night, who took their departure this morning." Washington, March 2, 1855. To V. Ellis, Esq., Editor of the Americin Organ: Dear Sir : I heard that a recent number of I your paper contains a list of the names of cer tain clerks employed in the Department tf I State, some of whom are alleged to be of for l eign birth and all Roman Catholics. In this list I understand that my name appears As I am very firmly of opinion that a man's religion, or place of nativity (just oonsidei, sir, for a moment? That, by the simple accident of birtli, i'ou might have teenbigb priest to Mumbo Jumbo!) have in reality as little to do, as the color of | his hair or eyes, with his fitness for official position. It seems hardly worth while for me I to deny that I am either a foreigner or a Roman Catholic. And yet, just as I would deem it j important (merely for truth's sake) to contra dict the statement, if any body should be fool ish enough to publish it, that I had the mea sles, or that I waa very rieh, er anything else as unlikely and unimportant?*'eo do I answer you." I am, then, neither a foreigner (unleaa my having been born in the State of New Jersey makes me one) nor a Roman Catholic In re gard to the latter question, I may add. with truth, that my anoeatral tree has never borrn fruit of that description. A oertain " colony of pinched fanatics " whose bones moulder in the soil in which its roots were planted, I sus pect had sometbicg to do with the indication of its branches And yet, sir, though I im no Roman Catholio? Dolls I can see in Virgin-like array, Not for a quarrel with the idols hanker, Like crazy Quixitte at the* puppet n play,? II their 'offence is rank,' should mine Ixi rancour? Yours, very trulv, R.

On passing al?ng Bridge street some deyi since, we were induced to go in and examine the improvement of Mr. R. S. T. Cissel, apoth ecary, on the corner of Congress street. The building has been considerably enlarged by extending it back twenty feet on Congress street, and placing upon it an additional story; the first floor divided into two apartments, petitioned eff with stained glass and mirrors; the room franting on Bridge street is intended for a general drug business and soda water establishment; and the room fronting on Con gress street exclusively for a prescription room. There is a night bell attached to every door, and every thing conneoted with the in ternal arrangement, is fitted up in the most admirable manner. We do not exaggerate when we say it is one among the handsomest establishments of the kind in the country The second story is occupied as offices, and every room is supplied wi'h gas, and water from a large reservoir on the roof of the build ing. The brick work was done bv Mr. Jones, of your oity, and the carpentering by Wm. Morael, of your city, and Wingate, of oura Tbe store was fitted up under the direotion of Mr. Thos Cissel. tbe painting by Messrs. W. fl. Godey, Jas Goddard and John Fowler, nnd the upholstering by Mr. C H. Rodier. The establishment is an ornament to Bridge street, and the workmanship reflects credit on thoee who executed it The funeral of Mrs Donoghue, a vary esti mable lady of our elty, took plaea yesterday morning, at 10 o'clook, from Trinity church. Every portion of the spacious bailding was crowded by sympathising friends of the fami ly. The Rev. Mr Lynch, Vice President of tieorgeutwn College, delivered a very solsmn enl impressive funeral disoourse. The Rev. Dr. Stanton will preach in the Market street Presbvtarian Chapel, at 11 o'clock to-morrow morning. The publio are invited to attend. The steamer Union broke a track through the ice yeetarday afternoon, and towed to our wharves the packet brig Ann Elisabeth, of Mr. Grimee's line of Boeton peokets, and the Salem left this moraing with the schooner Fulton, Capt. Small, in tow, bound for New buryport The sohooner A. V. Bedell, of Peter Berry's line, is hourly expeeted from Mew Ye*k. Tbe weather hes considerably moderated, and hope? are entertained that navigation upon our oanal and river will be open again in a few days. . AB ,, .
