gKVKNINO STAR. Local Intelligence. Th* first dat or April bu been long cel ebrated u a day of amassment The name i? from the Latin word aperio to open?as the ?pring season then bursts upon us The Sax ?ns oat led it Kostermonath. aa it vii the period of their worahip of the Goddess Oeater. The Romans consecrated the firat daj of April t Venus Hone quotes from an al manac printed 95 years since. in England, among otheri the fallowing line : 44 The firat of April some do My Is set apart to: All-fuoU day, But why the people call it so SNor I, nor tUcy U?*nk*lve*, do knew; ut on Hue day are people tent n {.nrpo?e for pure merriment. ? ? ? ? ? But lis a thing to l>e disputed, Which is the greatest fool reputed The one that innoc>TiUy went. Or he that bun designedly sent." The disappointment of the satyrs, who want to a river to see Venes bathe, as related by Grid, may have had something to do with the <(foola" part In eonneotion with it, and that part attributes to this story the origin of the ceremonies of the Roman ladies, 11 who per. formed ablations nnder the myrtle tree, crowned themselves with its leaves and offered sacrifices to Venns " " But soon with myrtles she her beauty veiled, Front whence this aacual ce?tom was entailed.'* 7orty.five years ago, the coming first day of April. Napoleon married Maria Loaisa, Areh Duchets of Austria. With the Hindoos all foola day occara on the 31st March, and Mus selmen of the higheat rank participate in the ?pert. Alc**i or Wasbibgtob Sim* art.?Some twenty.five or thirty years ago, the Alnmni of this Seminary were students of a highly re spectable school in this city, and a nobler bet of fellows never was before or sinoe collected within the walls of a similar institution. The Washington Seminary was the chief literary institution in this District, and its pupils were the children of many bonest, worthy families Hi the District and vicinity. A quarter of a century has passed away. The teachers hare nearly all gone to their long account, and the "boys," no longer such, have been aoattered in every direction to seek their fortunes upon the obeckered theatre of lifa?no two of them punning the identical occupation, but each one independent ef the other. When we look around us as we daily do, and obaerve thoee who were our early com panions?when we meet them one by one, and interchange the "how de-do" with them, we wiah to enjoy all the happiness again as we used to do?to turn boy again, and to greet all our old compeers once more en masse?that we may recognise their familiar faces?reoount our old jokes and tricks, anecdotes, wit, and fan. The very anticipation of suoh a re-union delighte us. We now observe these who used to be boys with as occupying posts of honor and distinction, refleotiDg the highest credit upon themselves and upon their Alma Mater; and why should not those, who, years ago,' ware 'young fellows" together, now be again associated? With this view, therefore, the Alumni of the Washington Seminary have agreed to associate themselves nnder that Bams, and meet annually at the old Seminary, and there, interchanging salutations, revive the good old school* boy days. A meeting ot the old students of Washington 6eminary will be called in a few days, and it is hoped eur old Seminarians will not fail to attend. An anneal meeting day will be ap pointed, and arrangements made for a future celebration. Officers are to be appointed, Ac. ?of which due notice will be given. A Niw Stba* Ewoiwb ?Our neighbor ef the Union has jast put into operation a new ?team engine, manufactured by Wm. M. Ellis A Co , of the Eagle Iron Works, of this oity, aad for efficiency, simplicity, elegance of woekmanship, aid beauty of finish, we do not thlR that its superior can be found in the eouatry. It was exhibited at the late Metro Clitan Fair, where it deservedly attracted th attention and admiration. Tne engine is of twenty-horse power; length of stroke, Id inches; diameter of oylinder. 9 inches. Our eotemporary says: It drives with per* fact ease 13 large printing praises, and has sufficient power to drive double that number. The new bailer is what is commonly called <4a locomotive boiler." and for economy in the consumption ef fuel, accomplishes even more than the gaarantee of the builder. The old boiler consumed about twenty-five hundred dollars worth of fuel every year. With the new boiler, the coat of fuel will not exceed eight hundred dollars a year. No father ever watched the virgin movements of his first-born with more unspeakable satisfaction than the foreman of our press room watches the swift, ?ilent, and oertain movements of the beautiful S'ece of mechanism intrusted to his guidance, e firmly believes that no such engine ever was or ever will be built, and aa his experience in these matters is not inoonsiderable, we will BOt undertake to question his judgment. Tan ConiricATioa or tbb Laws.?It is to be hoped that our observing, experienced, and well informed fellow oitiaenswill not hesitate to lay before the board obarged with the duty of codifying the laws of the District of Colom bia, their views of the legal reforms they may think necessary. It is to be sincerely wished that the labors of the Board in question will result as beneficially aa possibly for the pub' lie interest; and that good result is only to be accomplished by and through the joint labors of all oompetent to advise wisely in such mat tars and those of the Board themselves The axperience of nearly every active businese man in the District of Columbia will enable him to make some suggestion or other to the Board from whioh the latter may draw infor mation likely to assist them in the successful discharge of their duties Tairr ?On Friday morning, about two o'eleck, the auxiliary guard while ob their beat on Pennsjlvania avenue between Third and Fonr-and a-half streets, discovered a man whose movements excited their suipioions that, he either intended to break into a store in that vicinity or commit an aot of incendiarism. As ?oon as he perceived that they narrowly watched his ooaduct he slipped around the corner and outran the guardians of the night. On returning to the place where the man was ffrst seen they found a champagne basket con taining six fine hams, which, it was oertain under.the circumstances, did not come iato his possession honestly. They were taken to the watch-bouse, where, this morning. Mr. J. H. Caldwell, a dealer in the Centre Market, identified them as his property. The rogue kad prised off a plank of Mr. Caldwell's cov ered stand, and by this means took his pick of the bacon Cabtbts.?Those in want of these indis pensibles will find just now at Clagett A Dod son's indaeements to buy, suoh as are very rare, indeed. They are actually selling new carpeting of all qualities, from the most ale gant and fashionable down to the ingrain, at piices as low as one has to pay for similar goods at anetion, after having been worn more or less. These goods were purchased for cash in New York, during the late tight times when maay importers and jobbers were forced to sell at any prise to raise money to save their credit, liecce the prices at whish Clagett A Dodson are enabled to cell them.

Koiawat.?Yesterday, the pedestrians on the avenge, between Ninth and Tenth atreeta were sooffewhat alarmed for their safety by the rapid strides of a horse, attached to a car riage. The large glass windows on the avenue were endangered for a time, but luckily the runaway was arrested before serious harm re* ?ailed. Ext**s^Bwibdli5??We stated reoently that t xaiif^Rping himself Thomas Donuj, had been taken from this city to Baltisoore, by Offloer Graham, of tha poll50 firm of Potaa, Graham A MoKinley, upon ft requisition of the Governor of Maryland, charged with ob taining merchandise of inn dry merchants of Philadelphia and Baltimore, amounting to Mren or ton thousand dollars, andor falae pro tenses. Since that time, Offioor Graham has twice visited Washington, and, within tholast three days, with the aid of Officer Kimball, and Mr. David Ilarrover, of this city, at least $500 worth of the goods have been roooTorod. The accused, kept a store on Louisiana avenne, in ono of tho beautiful storos of the block recently erected by Silas H Hill, Esq His name appears on tha sign as Dalany, but in the Seventh Ward, where ho likewise ear ned on business, as Dunaney. The goods consisted of grooerios, including cboioe wines, and almost every article which enters into that trade. Procuring them for nothing, or under false pre to noes, he under sold the respectable merchants, retailing teas twenty-five per cent., and hams, in some cases fifty per cent, less than other grooers; and, consequently, he was fast obtaining a fine run of custom It was ascertained, as we learn irom officer Kimball, that, ia his wholesale transactions, he sold five hundred dollars' worth of goods for one hundred dollars These goods were recovered, on the repayment to the purohaser of the last named sum Between one hundred and fifty and two hundred dollars' worth oi groceries were found teoreted in a stable, or outhouse, where they had been clandestinely oeneealed by thi* man. In one instance, thirty dollars' worth of teas wore found oon coaled under the bed of one of our residents, who stated -hat the article had boon presented to him by Mr*. Dulany, the wife of the ac cused. On breaking open and entering the store on Virginia avenue the offioers found a quantity of goods, the names upon them having boon erased to avoid identification We learn from officer Kimball that six cart loads of goods, whieh Dulany had procure! from the Philadelphia and Baltimore mer chants were recovered in various places in this city. There are others in the store on Louisiana Ivenue. The aocused has been oommitted to jail, in Baltimore, by Sheriff Hindes, in default of se curity for his appearance at Court. Markkt.?The market prices this morning were such as were calculated to oause much sad feeling among those who have to work for the money that buys their provision. Beef sold at 10 to 18 oonu per pound; mutton, 12 to 15; and salt boef, 8 to 12} Fish--rock aod perch?37* cents per bunch; herring, 25 cents per dozen; shad, $1 per ptir, for the larger kind.
