KV-'NINij STAK. Local Intelligence. Dids't SkkthbLtdiass ?Itwaa announced bj the pester of Wesley Cnepel, yesterday morning, that, in the afternoon, Rev Pah. tab se ge, a Missionary Indian, and the cele brated chief Mecngwudans. and hia two sons of the Ojibwa tribe, would apeak and ring tc the pupils of the Sabbath tohool Both chil dren and tdultawere invited to be pre^jnt. Notwithstanding the jcicinees of the weather there was a tolerable large attendance of men women and children at the hour appointed They all wanted to tee the Indians?a raee oi people whose publn exhibitions are alwayi regarded with interest by both the risen anc the rising generation The scholars, in the opening of the axer cisee, sung several hymns; bat the Indian had not arrived. Every time the door ?a opened hundreds of eyes were turned thith erward, in the hope to see the entranoe of th< red men ; bat the disappointment oontinued Then a gentleman from New England prayed, and the children again sung in a mennei sweet and heart touching; the girls, as tuual excelling the boys in this delightful exercise. As if to oomfort the obildren for the absenc< of the Indians, the Rev. R. L. Dashiel saic that they had promised to sing for the Unioi Chapel congregation ater the forenoon exor cisee, and that the minister of that church ha<j promised to despatch the Indians te Weslej Chape) after dinner Mr Dashiel then related several iaterestin* incidents in the life of Peter Jacobs. (Pah-tat ee-ga,) as recounted by the Indian himself, ii a religious meeting on Thursday right; anc delivered a brief but welcome address to th< auditory Next, Mr. Paine, a New England gentleman wishing that he was an Indian for at least ai hour?in order that he might gratifv th< children with his appearance, impai .ed somi geod advice to the little ones However, the children didn't see the Indians It is unnecessary to fay they were painfull] disappointed. Tax Sale?The extensive tax *ale by th< City Collector was commenced this morning at ten o'clock, in the Board of Aldermcnl room. There wpi a large number o! persor present, nearly all of them provided witj copies of the advertisement, picking oat eucl pieces of property as they designed purchasing One must not suppose, from the numerou square, lots, and parts of lots offered for sale that many of oar property holders are bank rupt. The fs;t is, the taxes of non-resident or forgetful persons are pe\mitted to sscrue and the law demands that all arrearges shal te paid by a spcMued t'*ne, else the real es tate is put uo to the highest bidder, as no* The purchaser of any propeuy at public s?l is immedietsly required to pay the amount c taxes due on the property, with the amount c expenses of tho purchase money to be pai within ten days after the expiration of tw years from the day of sale to the City Regii ter, this reeidue to be placed in the city treat ury. where it is to remain subject to the orde of the original pioprietor or delinquent. J within two years irom the day of sale, or b? fere the reoidue of the purchase money shal be paid, the original proprietor or delinquer shall repay the money advanced for taxes an expenses, together with tan per cent, intere; thereon, be can regain possession of bis prop erty. The sale affcrds a fine opportunity fo the investment of surplus funds. Re6i*B!?tal Parade ?Although the firi of May is generally set apart for regiments parades, we have not seen any order froi headquarters in view of suqh an event lion ever, the companies composing the Distric regiment, n if presuming that so general pa rade will be ordered, have commenced inakin their own private arrangements for a militar display at that time. Ihe Washington Ligh Infantry, Capt. Davis, have determined t pitih their tents in some convenient locality the National Quards, Captain Tait, are like wise making arrangements for an excarsio daring the first week in May. Those compt nies will, probably, be followed by others, i their separate celebration; ?3 that, instead ( a general, officially authorized regimental pi rade, the several volunteer corps will be tost tered in various directions. Why cannot we have a regimental parade conducted after the manner adopted in th North ? There is no better material ther than here, and certainly no finer parad greunds than ?e have in the vioinity of tb city. We should have regular dri'ls sccordin to Scott's tactics. These suggestions we mak with due respect to those who are especial! entrusted with the general oversight of ot finely uniformed vcluotaer militia. Disorderly Cobdcct ?Wehsve freqaeatl noticed assemblages of boys en Church pn mises at night, whose conduct was not ent tied to the praise of orderly citisen*, an fc whose vocal performances wee not ealeulate r to advance the eau?e cf good morals. The may not have intended any disrespect to th religious assemblages, and. perhspe acted i the matter with the thoughtlessness of youtl However this may be, we are glad to stat that the police are exerting themselves t abate the nuisance to whioh we have iust r< ferred On complaint of members of wesle Chapel, comer of Fifth and I streets, th Chief of Police, John Davis, with three < four of tb? corps, last night arretted five of noisy party of javeniles who had congregate) near that church. Subsequently they wer severally fined in the snm. each, of five dol lars and coe'?~-rather expensive sport. W trust that this example will have its du weight, and deter the repetition of disorderl; conduct, not jn'y on church premises, be eUewhere in the city. Tbi Taylor Forgeries.?We hear of n efforts to caase the arrest of Lewis Littlepag* Taylor, the absconded forger The officers o the Goverment have no authority under th law to spend money for any such purpose, an no others seem disposed to make the expend! tare requisite to that end. We have no donb that he eould be essily traced up and secure* if any shrewd polioe officer would undertak the business. In the meantime an impressioi is prevailing in Washirgton that he bad a leest one aooomplioe who was privy to al hid forgeries This fact should be prosspt ly enquired into by our police officers. It i sarelj possible to trace up more concerning this affair than either the nublie or the poiioi Ere at this time acquainted with. Th Mario* RirLES will parade this Efter Roon. and at night givo their first annual bal at Carusi's Saloon. The lovers of dsncin( may expect a good time. From what we hav< heard, we jadge the entertainment will bi handsomely patronised. It eannot be of her, ^wtse. as the company have all exerted them selves to make it a grand affair. There will be a large turn out of their volunteer brethrei of the staff and other companies, as well as i prrfect avalanche of bcautifol, modest, and charming young ladies. Ah Alarm.?We learn that many person/ residing on the Inland are alarmed forth* security of their property, as legal proceed icg are pending affecting the title of seven 01 eight souares of ground in that section of th< city Not a lew of the persons directly inter ested are poor men, who, by seving a litth money from the wages of their honest 'toil have invested the same in humble homesteads Caccht at Last ?A few days since, w? mentioned the fact of s colored men escaping from the efficers by leering from the second story window of e house in which he was witb en unlawful Essembiege On Ssturday b< wes Errested by officer Martin End taken be fore Justice Mersell, where he gave his name as (Jeurge Jaoobs, and was ordered to pay five dollars fine End costs lie said be thoaght that his lesp ought to release him from th< law, bat the magistrate did not coincide in that opinion. ??
