! v lySINQ STAR. Local Intelligence. St. Joseph's Male Oaphae Asylum.?The cars and proteotion of the orphan are subjects which present themselves to the mind and commend themselves to the heart of every good Christian. It afford* as pleasure, there fore, to state that efforts are being made by come of oar moat respected citiser.s for the permanent relief of the large class of desti tute and friendless children whom poverty an i death have thrown upon the public streets. Already two large institutions are in existence having this object in view?the Protestant Orphan Asylum for boys and girls, and St. Vincent's Orphan Asylum for girls exclu sively. These two institutions have accom plished an incalculable amount of good, but another is still necessary. The many publio and private improvements undertaken in the city during the last few years, and now in progress, have necessarily brought here a large number of workingmen, who in many instances die off. leaving little children to eat of the bitter fruit of orphanage. It is for the relief of such as theae that St Joseph's Male Orphan Asylum has beon organised. Already considerable progress has been made, demonstrating the energy and peculiar fit nets of the gentlemen selected for the task. A charter has been obtained from Congress, a system of collections entered upon, and, so far, carried out most successfully; while to render the accomplishment of the object more secure, a kind-hearted gentleman of the city has, with great liberality, agreed to give a suitable l-?t of grounu upon which to locate the institution and for its general purposes We hope that every one will contribute his mite towards so noble and desirable an object The following gentlemen are the Trustee* named in the act of Congress chartering St. Joseph's Male Orphan Asylum, all of whom have ac cepted and are now actively and earnestly en gaged in the discharge of their duties, vis : Thomas Carbery, John Carroll Brent, Richard 11. Clarke, Gregory Ennis, Hugh B Sweeny, Thomas Feran, James L. Harvey, Willi m H. Ward, snd Nicholas Callan. [communicated ] The Ball op the Scott Guards, which took place at Carusi's Saloon, last evening, was truly a brilliant affair. The eye wa< first attracted, upon entering the hall, by the beau tiful wreaths of evergreen, bung in rich pro fusion around the room bearing inscriptions of all the glorious victories achieved by the gal last Seott during bis long and triumphant career. At the upper end of the hall, between two national flag*, was suspended a portrait of the "old chieftain," whose beroio deeds are indellibly stamped upon every American heart, and the brilliancy of whose achieve ments challenges the admiration of the world. A beautiful wreath, inlaid with flowers, made by some kind ladies on Capitol Hill, occupied a conspicuous place The ' stars and stripes ' were looped in festoons in different places, while the beautiful banner, presented to the corps by a kind and liberal friend, gracefully waved over the entranoe of the hall. The scete was, indeed, picturesque and pa triotic But we were roused from our reverie by the soft strains of the music, as it swelled upon the evening breese, and the light foot-, s'epsof the merry maids and gallon: beaux, skipped cheerily, merrily through the dance Throughout the whole evening, joy and mirth reigned supreme Our military triends turned out well, more especially the juvenile compa nies of Union Infantrv and Washington Hifl*6.

The 'ball was kept up with spirit, and nothing occurred to mar the festiv ities of the evening. S. Coxvict Labor?We have received from Mr John F C Offutt. Secretary of the House Carpenters' Society, the following, acd publish it for general information : "The House Carpenters' Society of Wash ington city take this method of returning their thanks to the fire companies that ha?e parsed, or may pass, the following resolutions; also, the press. City Councils, and citiien3. for the active part they have taken toward suppress* ing convict labor in our penitentiary : "Whereas, arrangements are now being made in the penitentiary of the District of Co lumbia for the purpose of furnishing work for the building of houses in our city, thereby coming directly into competition with our in dustrious mechanics, anl compelling them either to work for a mere pittance or seek work elsewhere, where they will not have to compete with felons and convicts; therefore, be it . That we the members of the Co lumbia Fire Company will refuse to work upon, or attempt to save from destruction by fire any house that may have any work up^n it exe cuted by convict labor. '?K'.tolvcd. That a committee of three be ap pointed whose duty it shall be to find out such boLding3 as may have any of said work upon them, and place the number and -location of such houses in the engine house, so they may be known by e?ch member of the company. "And b* it fwiker lie tolled, That a eopy of the foregoing resolutions be transmitted to each fire company within the District, and re quest their concurrence in the same." I. 0 0. F ?The semi annual grand visita tions ifor examination) by the officers of the Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows, D. C , were this week commenced. Mechanics'Lodge, George town, was visited on Wednesday night, and Friendship Lodge, First Ward, last night The other Lodges, we learn, will be attended to in the following order: Eastern. Friday, 13ih. Covenant, Monday, 16th; Excelsior, Tuesday, 17th; Union, Wednesday, ItSth; Co lumbia, Thursday, 19th; Central, Friday, 20th; Harmony, Monday, 23d; Oriental, Thursday, 0 28th; Metropolis. Friday, 27th ; Beacon. Mon day, 30th; and Washington, Tuesday, May 1. It affords us pleasure to learn that the Or der is in a sound oondition, and continues, as heretofore, to generously disperse its blessings among the objeotj of its care. The Cgecert. at Odd Fellows' Hall, Navy Yard, to night, by the Washington Glee Club and some of the lest vocalists of our eity, promises to be highly interesting; th* selec tions ot music having been made with a view to the development of the rare vocal capacities of those who will contribute to the entertain ment. Apart from this, the object is one which commends itself to every friend of re ligion and good order, namely, for the benefit of the Baptist Church in that part of our city. New Odd Fellows' Hall ?We learn that the Odd Fellows in the First Ward are earnest ly agitating the subject of the ereetion of a hall, for their own and other purposes, in that part of Washington, and have appointed a committee to select and report on a site, as a preliminary movement. The First Ward is without a hall for public meetings. Such an accommodation vould probably be furnished in the same building which is contemplated by the members of that popular and charita ble order . In a Bad Way ?Lost night, a white man, laboring it is reasonably suspected, under the effects of strung drink, was discovered in the street, acting as if he were endeavoring to escape from badly-inclined pursuers?but those were merely phantoms of the morbid brain. He was conducted to the watch-houae for lodging and dismissed this morning There was no other lodger there for the night ; a fact pleassct to rccord. PC?MPL!ME*TARY.?We learn that the clerks of the General Land Offije are making prepa fations for presenting to Dr. Charles S. Frai ey, late the ohief clerk of that bureiu, a tes fmooia! in token of their high respect for bim both as a courteous gentleman and an efli-ieut public officer iuk kuNKEl.v?It will be remembered that those favorites appear at Odd Fellows' Hallj on Monday and Tuesday evening? to give their farewell soiraw. Unpaid Letters?Sine* the flrtt of April, noout one hundred and fifty unpaid letter! have 'awn drbpped into the W&ahington oily post ofiice. In acoordanoe with the law, a list of them ia prominently posted in the veati bnle, for the information of all oonoerned. Although the law requiring pre-payment hea been extenairely published, and attention es pecially called to the aubjeot in all the newa- , papers, yet some people remain ignorant of | thia legal requirement. We learn that on Monday week, the aeeond day the law went into effeer, the drop-box waa closed, in order that depositors should present their lettera at the window, with at view to in sure prepayment And in thia connexion an anecdote ia related. A man offered his letter to the clerk, at the same time declining to pre pay. He waa aaaured that the law waa imper ative; still he failed to be oonvinoed. He thought that "the receiver of the letter should pay the toll." The clerk happening to tnrn hia head away from the window to anawer an inquiry addressed to him from the inside, the man, availing himself of the opportunity, slily slipped in bis unpaid letter, and waa in the act of departing, congratulating himself that he had triumphed orer the clerk, "on thealy," when he waa re-called, aMsreminded of his folly in attempting to outwit the wide awake official Hiram Powers ?To day, at*noon, in the sanctum of the Star, a fine bottle of Long worth's "Sparkling Catawba" waa duly opened and diapoaed of in compliment to our abvent fellow oitiien Hiram Powera. At the aame moment Mr. P. waa to have opened one of the same sort in his studio in Kome, in eompli* ment to his many friends of the American presa who aided him in getting the order given to him by Congress at ita laat session His old friend and patron, Nicholas Longworth, of Cincinnati, ever mindful of the fame and for tune of our talented oountryman, kindly aent u? the wine through the handa of S. York At Lee, Esq ; and haa, we presume paid a like compliment to day to all the editorial admi rers of the genius of Powera in Washington. Assault a?t> Batter v.?Yesterday after noon Augustus Fresh, Jacob Goverraaater. and George Staffney, were arrested by officers Wilson, Kemble and Westerfield, and commit ted to jail bv Justice Donn, for committing an assault and battery on Henry Seiti. Martha Staffney, the wife of one of the parties gave security for her appearance at court, and Mo ses fiiher was discharged on the same charge. Musical Cokvemtion ?The Union Choir Association of this city have, we learn, pro cured from Professor Henry the use of the Smithsonian Institution, for the great musical convention to beheld in Washington in May next. The Arrivals at the hotela are as numer ous as oould be expcoted at this season of the year, considering that there are neither ordi nary nor extraordinary excitements to attract strangers from abroal.

Astonishing Elopement "at d<ty last week, (says the Cneinnati Coiiimtrclal cf the 10:h,) a wonan named Suiser eloped from her husband's residence in Morgin Township, Butler Coanty, Ohio, v?itb a young schoolmsiter named Pease, who bad been teacher during the winter in the tho vicinity an I boarding at Super's bouse. The infatuated woman had lived happily with her hush and for rear twenty years, and was by bin: the mother of seven interesting chil dren. fche took with i?r. her y<>uages. child, an infant, (leaving six with her husband ) and about five tbous-tnd in cash and negotiable notes. She w? s th* da*:gh**r of a weilthy old :armer. who died about a year ago. leaving a very handsome property to her. The notes .&he took with her were givon by the purchaser of a portion of the land inherited from her father: and were drawn in favor of her bur band On the day after her flight, one of her brothers, who was sick in her house died, and it is presumed that the sudden and strange disappearance of his sister may have given the shock that proved fatal. The husband of tha guilty fugitive was ia the city yesterday, searching for a clue to (he whereabouts of the wretched pair who have robbed him of his peace. He is almost erased with grief, indig nation and a lamo, and is cf the opinion that the flight has been in the direction of New York. It is feared that Pease had soma of tha notes cashed in this oity, but the fact has not been a*oertained This is one of the most remarkable oases of elopement of which we have heard It seems wholly unacoountab!e. jet "the heart is de ceitful above ail things and desperately wi ek ed." At home she was in very oomfortable circumstances Her husband had jaat fin ished a commodious t>nd elegant new hon e, and the eldest of her children was a daughter foir'een years of age A more interesting and happy family than the one now dishonored and broken, was a fortnight ago, would ha bard to find.
