L'.V KNIXG star. Local Intelligence. Tbb Exhibition of the Sunday School at tached to the Methodi?t Episcopal Church South, which took place lMt nigh;, vu highly interesting. The church was filled to its ut most capacity, and the Dimb?r of spectators wee composed, for the greater part, of ehil ren. acoompanied by their adalt friends Wa caa oonceive of bo entertainment mora inno cent ia its character and mora heart-improv ing in its affects The exercises vera opened with prayer by tbe Ear W W Bennett J Master John Clary delivered tbe opening address, and Miss Mary, his sister, pronounced one to tbe girls, both performing their recpee live parta creditably Misa Virginia Edinon ?ton sang sweetly and plaintively "Tbe Djina Child" and "Mary's Dream '* Julia Teal and Shepherd Ilandy each recited beautifully Archibald Bennett Zimmerman, fuur years old. waa among the performers. The auditory ware so much pleased with hie oratorioal ef tort that they oompelled the little fellow to repeat it. We were unable to learn the namea of all the children who participated in the exhibi tion ; but all of them acted well their several parta in the recitations, dialogues, aoloa, and the singing in Conoert Sixty dollara were collected, as much aa the teachers required to purchase library booka for the interesting juvenile* under their charge. Cost or Livmo ?Tbe prioea of all kinds of produce in thia eity are eo well known to bouse keepers, that they need not be men tioned in print. The mere announcement cf tbeai bv the various dealers causae many a one to heave a sigh and wear a lugubrious countenance The present oppressive tax oa gastronomic necessities might be borna with I hilosopby if there were even a prospect that the tariff will shortly be reda ed. But our citiaens are not the only people who complain. The Baltimore American says that tbe coat of living In that eity is fully one hundred per cent, higher than it waa ten yeaia ago. All kiada of meat are held at rricea far beyond tbe meana of tha poor, and fish, which hereto fore haa been the chief living of a large ciass of the oommunity, are now put beyond their reach. Ordinary aised perch are sold at 6* cents each, and proportionate rates for other kinda Except in meata, our cotemporary saya. there ia nothing which doea not pass through the poeeeraion of two, three, and sometimes four Craona before it reaches the consumer, who a to pay two, three and four profits, so that tbe ooet ia enormoua, besides the loss occasioned in many ioataccea, through falae weight and measurement The N Y. Evening Posi aijs that prices continue enormously high, and that some of the butchers sold porter house (tender loic) steaks at twenty-five centa a pound?though the average ia abcut twenty one Butter ia held at twenty-nine to thirty-six ccn's a pound, and cheese at fourteen. Tbe cold weather baa operated against the fish market, and in consequence tbe stock of all kinda of fish is very amall. There is a limited supply of fresh shad from the south, for sale at fifty end sixty two and a half cents each. Tbb Poisoniso Cask ?Tbe trial of Delia Haael and Pharnella Skiaker, charged uith joiaonirg Caasy Williams and her family, commenced yesterday, was concluded thia morning. It waa proved, by the teatimony of Mr*. Williams, that a week before the poison ing Delia Haael, during a difficulty between the parties, said ch* would have satisfaction, even if aha went to tbe penitentiary for it, and by pther witnesses that on a Thursday night, tv<> weeks ago, Pharnella Skinker waa with tbe little bey, living in her family, who bought the poiaon. 'Ihe fact that arsenic had been sprinkled on the meat, a part of whioh Mra. Williams and her family partook, was proved bv a chemist, who made an examination of i'. There waa no direct evidence tending to impli cate the accued parlies The jury, though they bad been absent two hours, had not agreed upon a verdict at the time oar paper went to preaa. Bbacbs Wantbd?Several of our eautioua fellow citiaenj have requested us to call the attention of the corporation authorities to the propriety of bracing tbe iron bridges over the Washington canal Iba idea is a good one, and abould be promptly attended to. The omnibuaee which cross the Twelfth and Four teenth street bridges, are often much heavier laden than the one under the weight of which the ia street bridge gave way. The Tenth street bridge, too, though but a way for foot paaaergers, at times baa upon it a much heavier weight than the other bridges named above sustain. Wa rater to the timei when the erowd attending the leeturea at the Smith sonian Institution are returning into the heart of the eity, when it is now and then covered with a dense mass of human beings?tbe heaviest load that ean be put on it. Pioplb's Tbbatrb ?Miss Fanny Morant will, this evening, appear in tbe celebrated drama of "Guy Mannering," and personate the character of Meg Merrilea; Mr. J. 11. AU*b will perform tbe part of Dacdie Din fflont, and Mr. W. H. Norton that of Dominie Sampson, The laughable farce of the "Spec ire Bridegroom" will conclude tbe evening's entertainment Meg Merriles is understocd to be tke character on the performance of whieL Misa Mcrant prides herself most She has won higher fame in it than any other indeed, many of her admirers insist that her Meg Merrilea is quite eqaal, if not superior, to that of Charlotte Cusbman, of whioh the Washing ton public will have an opportunity of judging this evening. Thb Fishsribs.?1 he weather is very mush agaiait the interests of the fishermen upon tbe Potomac river. It has been to cold that theahadand barring turn back and go into deep water,,or pa*s up other rivera. We are informed that the long seines at the largo landing have not been dipped, there not being ftsk suffi dent to pay for the labor. Many of our experienced hands at the landings are prediotiag an unprofitable seaaon, and fiah are sdling at high prices wherever they reach the market. Kbyisiox and Codification op tdb Laws At a caucus of tbe know Nothing members of tke City Councils last night, we learn that the following tieket for commissioners to revise tha contemplated codification of tbe laws of the District, in accordance with the late act of Congress, was agreed upon, to be voted far in the joint meeting of tbe Councils on the Vth of April, via : J. H Bradley, E C. Carrington, J M McCalla, Samuel Shelton, and Josiah F. Polk. Two Qbrbabs having recently got into a difficulty about business affairs, one of them mad* out a bill against tbe other for four dol lars; and the lat er, as an offset, presented a kill for three dollars and eighty four oents Kaoh party swore to his account. In this con dition of affairs, Juatice Smith waa compelled te diamias the case, boing unable to decide between them During the investiga ion, one of theGermana said tbe other called bim a dishonest man, and this epithet was retorted. Tbb Concndbcm ? We learn that the silver piteher was awarded, last night at tha Circus, to the following so-called conundrum : " Why is Ham Duvall like a pig catcher?" " Because he caught the pig Aeeording to the announcement in tbe tills, " the applautc of the audience was to decide the winner " If this was the best, we should not aare about bearing tbe worst. RoteDnsM ?The residents of the Second Ward are greatly disturbed by the outrareous conduct of number* of boys who meet at vari o?s places, shocking the ears of passers bv with their profane and indecent language The arrest and puniahmeut of a few of the wurat would no doubt tend to the breaking ud of theae corrupting acboots of vice, Tbb Q band J car. were formally discharged yesterday, by his honor Judge Crawford; they' Laving completed the business which was brought before them.

Fiske, editor of the Trans oript, is said to be the Know Nothing candi date for Mayor of Portsmouth, Va. Taking Advantage of Female Confidence. A rather interesting German girl appeared at the Mayor's office a few days since and pre ferred a complaint against a German man, named Robert Edmund Theele. From her affidavit it appears that Theel and her became acquainted in September lut, who three days alter his first introduction to her proposed marriage*which she, in good faith accepted. Subsequently she says that she gave Theel sundry sums of money amounting in all to $60, fur the purpose of purchasing furniture pre paratory to getting married, and going to house keeping After the above amount had been expended, he proposed to her that she should give him sufficient money to establish a cigar store at 170 Sixth avenue, to which proposition she acceded, and the store waa ac cordingly opened on the 3d of November last, at an expense of $540, which money she fur nished him. In addition to the above amounts of money she states that she lent him a gold watch and chiin, one gold ring, one pair of gold specta cles, and one silk umbrella, in alt valued at about $110.50. She also swears that Theel did not contribute any capital towards establish ing the cigar store, above alluded to, and that she never received, in re'urn for the money advanced, over $17, whieh wu out of the pro ceeds of the store. It now turns out that Mr. Theela real name is Schneider, and that he is a married man, living with and supporting his family in Seventh street, in this city, out of the proceeds of her store and bu*inesa above named. Immediately on hearing of these facts sho closed the store; but the s?ock on hand with fixtures, will not exceed $100, leaving her out of pocket about $600, by the speculation. Upon the above facts being sworn to, Jus tice Osborn issued a warrant for the arrest of Schneider, who was arrested on Tuesday mor ning, and taken before the Judgo, who re quired him to give bail in the sum of 1500 to answer for the charge ?iY.

Thirty-five buildings were dutroyed, including the court-house, post office, Central Georgian printing office; Ma soniC; OJd Fellows, and Knights of Jerioho Lodges, with their records. Many families who were possessed ef competence have lost all. Not a store of any description is left in the plaoe. Lccirxn Matches?The assistant secretary of one of the largest fire cffices in London, says that the introduction of the luolfer match hu caused it an annual loss of ten thousand pounds sterling !
