EVENING STA R. *" ? ? ? Local Intelligence. Tbb P pes est Anon or Plate.?At two' o'clock yesterday, the time fixed upon for the presentation of a memorial by the clerks of the General Land Offioe to Dr. Charlaa S Prailey on his retirement from tha office of Chief Clerk, the Commiaeioner of that bareau, Chief Clerk, and Clerka of the office mat at the room of the Cbief Clerk, when Col. Irvin, in a brief and feeling manner stated the objeet of the meeting, and introduced Col. H H Heath, who, with a chaste and appro priate address, presented to the Doetor a beau tiful silver pitcher, pair of goblets and salver, m a token of friendship and appreciation of hia moral and olerical worth. To which ad* drees the Doctor responded in appropriate COL BBATH'S ADDBESS. My Dear Sir: The severance of long sob aisting friendly relations between men, has never failed to produoe emotions of regret. Indeed, the oocasions are not unfrequent, in which ?orrow is added to regret at the change even of unpleasant associations, when the re flection steals upon us that the relaions oaoe sustained to those objeots will never again sabeist How, muoh more then, my dear sir, most the appreciating sympathies of eur na ture be affected at a change in which those relations have been not only of a pleasing and friendly eharacter, but those, too, in which, as many of us can with safety arer, of a na ture highly Taluable in an offloial as well as | social peint of view. In thia latter and moat pleaaing condition, my friend, do we now stand with reference to yourself The hand of ohange haa been busy recently, and it has taken you from amongst us, with some of whom, and with the places of all, you have been associated for nearly or quite the fifth part of a century?the third part of man's I Allotted career. To yon, as the Chief Clerk of this offioe, whilst the ohange was one of | ohoice as well as ne eeaity?made so by a de sire to repair an enfeebled constitution, it must have been, at the same time, one of no ordinary character. Prom the office you hava departed as from an old and esteemed friend; ftom ua and those connected with it, aa from colaborers whe oould be naught but friends. From a position of dignity, honor, and great] responsibility, you have receded, to occupy ona more quiet, as respectable, and highly important; and may the results of the change efiected be as satisfactory in their character as our regrets at parting are sincere and un affected. I have, by the kindness of my fellow clerks | in this office, tn which you have, for so length- j aned a period expended your highly acknow ledged abilities, and upon whose enduring records have been left the impress of your genius?been deputed to perform the pleasiug task of presenting to you this testimonial Our offering ia dedicated as an humble tribute which friendship has heretofore sough*, as the medium of ita appreciation of worth, a?d will hereafter 6eek, a' tho feet of the object of it* devotion Accept it, sir, as an earnest of our exalted appreciation of your charactsr, both as an individual and aa a faithful public ser vant. Acc-pt it from ua, sir, as from those, who, though separated as to the daily aeaocia tions once aurrounding us, ye: not as from those who, severed, forget. Aocept it, air. as a pledge of the paat. and as a token for the comiog time?and may the decaying health which took you from amongst us be rejuve nated whilst pursuing the more pleasant walk cf official life cho3en, that you may long live to anjoy the pleasures of a beautiful world; the sympathetic warmth of your manifold friends, and the endearments of a cherished and undivided fireside. I>E. rBAILET'S RIPLT. Kind friends and former efficial associates? The ocoaaion which brings ua together this day, within the walla of that cffice in which, for nearly twenty yeara, I had been associa ted with a few of you?al&a how few!?and during the whole official life of the reat of yon, and the kind terms whieh have been used by your organ in conveying to me those palpable evidences you have deemed it proper to exhibit of the kind feelings you have en tertained of me, as a nsn and an officer, awake in my breast emotions to the full ex pression of which I Cad my powers of mind totally inadequate, and where any effort at clothing them in language befitting their tru? character w uld be ta futile as an attempt on the part of the mariner to control the boister ous, but natural and salutary, commotions of the mighty sea skirting our extended shores. Fed by ita thousand sparkling rills and hun dreds of broad rivera some gliding silently, others bounding with joyfulness to their ulti mate destination in that vast ocean, its bosom tumultously responds to causes affecting its tranquility and stirring up its silent depths? mine has been filled wiih streams of your kindness and consideration and the breath of this last approval (coupled with causes, on my part, whioh afforded its exercise) had crea ted a storm therein, leaving me no other than the mariner's resource, to scud before the blaat and await the subsidence of the elements now controlling me. What a myriad of images ri->e up before ona in taking a rstroapec: of a period of twsn ty years of official life! What a host of aa axiationa, of a varied character, crowd upon the heart, as those images bring to view those associated with auch a one in the commence ment of that period, but who hava successive ly dropped by the wayside, leaving you to toil on?the official life of some having been brought to a close, and their talenta and abili ties freed to seek other channels for their ex erc:se; or, more Badly, the natural life of 1 others having terminated, leaving their friend* to grieve, not osly for their personal loss, but alas' too often, for the destitution and help lessness of wives and children left behind!. What reflection a are forced upon such a one In being compelled by declining health to ae ver ties Unking him wiih the p*at. binding him ao strongly to the few whom time and tri al have spared of his early companions, and connecting him with f'esh bonds to those who have successively taken the places of the lal len! To feel, with zeal unabated, with in dustry unflagging, with mind unimpaired,, that, without abatement of the exercise of theie powers, the physioal fr?me must yield, the ebbmg sands of life receive an increased impetus, and the ahadows of evening, natur* ?lly approaching, sooner end in tha darkness night, and that even with such a respite, it will be ^with the highest anticipations in re lation thereto realised) but a postponement for a limited period of an event which my lata position among you was greatly hastening. !o f??i this, * iid mora, whisk has bee a re* i cently forced on my mind on the subject of Work of the rtlentles* one, brings with it emotions of regret, connected with the sever ance of the relations between whioh greatly enhance the poignancy of an event previously ooo empla'ed only as likely to end with life Itseif. if left to my own volition. At inch a time and under auch circum stances, do you, my friends, stand forth with sympathising hearts and voicss to chaar, by your endorsement of the past, the reu.nant of a life jet devoted to the publio service. In ?very relation of that efficial life, I have en deavored to discharge my duty with frankness of -rharac er, hoaeaty of intention and firm ly ot ?Bd ?n my lata position, wneaevr: I nave at any time been brought in apparent colhsiGo wjtb ?Dy of you, lam grati J , ? oofl'ictiou. cf which my mind haa neen well assured, that none of you believe t hut a conscientious diacharge of Oi??that personal conaider ations ever for a mom* nt swayed my judgment voai more of JOO I deemed your duty required, and that in the latter the requirement was one, not of precept merelv, but one enforced by example v r'\ For tha mere expression of your approba tion I am deeply sensible It is always a fit ting and grateful tri bute, and to be ooveted bv Wary one who cherishe* any regard for the opinions of those he holds in este.-m For the particular manner you have chosen to give it ?tterance?by i-s public expression, in terms highly complimentary, by a valued friend whom yoe deputed for that purpose, within the walls of that " old and intimate friend * as he has feelingly likenad the placaof my former lat>ors and by an aooomcanlment of a valuable ani enduring memorial, constantly uttering in '? silvery tones " by the graven characters thereon, the act an?i its cause i cannot but be protonodiy impressed, a^surim* you that whilst in this heart tbsre throbs a pulse i shall not fail to regard eaoh one a ? ? 70a with the feelincs due an old assoeiate sad friend, cherishing thia your gift m one of my f4iatfM and keeping it before my eyes, amidst the solacing oomforta of my home, M a dally remembrancer of your kindneaa and regard, and leaving it, when time to me ahall eeeee to exist, aa a preeiona legacy to my children, to whom it will at all times aet as aa Ineentive to the praotiee of all the dntiea of life by the extern pi ati on of that whioh the partiality ot their father's frienia acoorded nim for the plain discharge of what he had andertaken to perform .

The presentation consisted of a Silver Pitcher. Salver, and two Gobleta. with inscrip tions on eaoh. On the Salver?Presented to Dr Charles S. Frailey, upon hia retirement from the chief elerkship of the General Land Office by his fellow clerks Washington, April. 1855. On the Pitoher?Presented to Dr. Charles S. Frailey by the clerks in the General Land Offloe. On each Goblet?To Dr. Charles 8. Frailey The artioles are very beautiful, costing about one hundred and thirty dollars. They were purchased in Baltimore, and the engrav. ing was executed by our fellow-townsman, D 0. Hare, EngTtver. The oceasion of presentation was one of a highly interesting nature, and the testimonial itself was well worthy the objeot of bestowal, for never was there a more faithful and de serving public servant. The Soiree and Gift Concert took place at Carusi's Saloen, last night, according to the previous announcement. Madmoiselle Rosa Smith and Miss Ellen Morant sung several songs with marked ac ceptance to the auditory, and the distinguished pianist. Mr. Palmer, performed elegantly on the piano forte After the ooncert was over, the drawing for " the splendid laees, valued at $1,500," was proceeded with About two hundred tiokets, we learn, were purchased in this city at one dollar each, and upward of seven hundred elsewhere. Several gentleman, well known in Washington, superintended and conducted the drawing, and therefore no doubt oould ex ist as to the fairne s of the proceedings. This was some comfort to the losers The number of prises was small as com. pared with the large number of tickets; but in lotteries of that kind, they who invest their funda, must philosophically be oontented with the result of their adventure. Thk Races, yesterday, over the Columbia course, were largely attended by lovers of equestrian sports, from this city and the aur-1 rounding country First heat, both horsos got well away together; Dutchman soon ob taining the lead of Ned Hunt. Second heat, the first nams I also led the way; and there fore won the race Dutchman was entered by Mr. George Smith, and Ned Hunt by Henry Martin Time: first heat, 3 34; second heat, 3.09, as we learn from a gentleman who witnessed the sport. Enlargement of the Post Office Depart mbnt ?We stated yesterday, that the ground had been broken preliminary to building op erations. To day we noticed tha^ab>utsix teen hands are employed, excavating and haul ing away the dirt; while others are engaged in removing the piles of wood and stables on the premises?on the northwest corner of the square. Ne*t week the demolition of the four houses?three bricks and one frame?fronting F street, will be commenced Mr. A W Denham has been appointed su perintendent of the laborers, and has entered upon the performance of his duties. A Controversy.?Just at this time there appears to be a matter for controversy existing between the Franklin Fire Company and members of the City Councils. The company by a vote at a very full meeting, decided to erect their engine house on a lot south of Penn sylvania avenue; but certain members of the aldermen said it would be better located north of F street, and one gentleman introduced the word "shall" among his remarks To this, an officer of the company replied, that tbey ne/er were taught the meaning of the word " shall," and the company would be likely to stand upon other law than the will ef a single member of the board. How this matter will end remains to be seen. Christy and Wood's Minstrels, at the People's Theatre, again attracted an "over, whelming bouse" last night; delighting, aa heretofore, the dense auditory with their mu. sio and comic ao'icg They are truly''exten sive" in their performances. As their stay is limited the lovers of such diversions will, of course, avail themselves of the opportunity which will be afforded this evening, to attend the entertainment. Crois Firing ?This morning the oase of M. Hariison. charged with assault and bat tery on H. T. L. Wilson, was brought before Justiee Morsell and Captain Burch Harrison immediately demanded a corporation warrant against Wilson for profanity. When it oame to this point, the parties withdrew their war rants, got to be friendly and went away. The cause was a bill for bouse rent A Dangerous Mae ?Las: night a complaint was made to the captain of the guard against a oolored man nauied Lewis Kennaday. who was said to be a dangerous person. Officer Martin went for him. and brought the accused to the guard house, and it was clearly proven this morning that ex.reue old age would pre vent him from being a very dangerous person. He was dismissed immediately Kennady was so old and weak, that he was barely able to walk with the assistance of another person. Fight ih the Lumber Heaps.?Last night, aeollixon took place between Mr. D. S Potter and K C. Copelani, on the Avenue, that ended in a long and severe flu fight, or aa the b'hoys sail it, 4,old Virginny rassle," between Mr. Copeland ard Mr W. Woodward. The parties selected the lumber yard on Sixth at, near the Canal, as the place to settle the af fair There the> fought until they were ar rested by Capt. Biroh and taken to the guard house, when Messrs Porter, Copeland and Woodward were held to bail to appear at court and answer the charge of riot. Correction.?We have been requested to atate that the Button named in the Star of yea terday, is not Jacob D. Huttoo, 175 D atreet. Watch Returns ? Thos. Edwards, drunk; dismissed. E Crown, oolored, drunk; work, he use 30 data. Ice to Liverpool ?The Portland State of Maine mentions that the British ship " City of Montreal" has received a cargo of ioe for Liverpool?rather a new export from Portland to Europe. The ice was prooured from Scbsgo pond. Figure Versus Face.?A young atockbro* ker having married a fat old widow with $100,000, saysit wasn't hia wife'alace that at. tracted him ao muoh at the figure. [ADVERTISEMENT. A CARD Mr. Editor:?Your report in yesterday'a Star is inoerrect in regard to my brother J Wm Button being injured with his own pistol in stlf-drftnct; furthermore, it was not lor rioting that he was arrested. The feots are these: I reside io New York?my husband, P F. Harris, was formerly editor and pro Erietor of the Broadway Bell* in that oity ome tea daya aince we came from New York on a visit to my brothor'a family, Jaoob D Hut tun a in thia cuv, at 175 D street My young*r brother, J. Wm Hutton. has been married some six months to a lady with whom I am not on good terms. Therefore our viait was hoi extcuded to the boarding house of J. Wm. Hutton, aud I did not see hit wife until iMt Tueedaj evening. the day before we were to return to New Tork en route for aoontemplated visit to Europe Mrs J I). Hatton end myaelf end e little aister, in the ebeenoe of otlf hat* bends, were sitting at the door, when my little ?later aays. " There oomes Billy end Fanny," meaning J Wm Uatton and hia wife Hooked ap and aure enough they were appro lohing ua, I waa astonished for I did not suppoae they would oome where I waa. I aaid to Mra. J. D. Hatton, 4,What do I behold! oan I believe my own eyes? " At this time they were op posite the door, end in the twinkling of an eye he dropped hia wife's arm and hit me in the faoe, knocking me from my aeat, and be oommenoed kicking me in a brute like man ner, until, with the assistance of my sister-in law, Mra J. D Hatton I fled into an adjoin ing room. He then left. I told him that Mr. Harris, my husband, would oowhide him for that; his answer was, "Tell Mr Harris I'll be back in ten minutes M Hii wife all this time stood at the streeUdo r looking on. Lie then took her to the next hoase, Mr. , where she was harbored Until the next night, as her husband did not dare return for her, or fulfil his engagement in ten minutes With my husband, who returned a few minntes after the assault and waa in waiting for him with oowhide in hand In the meantime a warrant waa issued for hia arrest and placed in tho hands of officer Stoddard for execution, but the officer was unable to find his whereabouts, and my haaband went in search and foand him secreted in a gentleman's store, on the avenue, but not being empowered with autho rity to arrest him, he feigned friendship and told him that if he would call that evening and ask my forgiveness, he thought the charge would be withdrawn. My brother pra miaed Mr. Harris that he would oall after dart. My husband then returned and man* aged to have the officers in readiness when he should call in the evening. About 9 o'clock, he made his appearanoe, and entered the house where his wife was secreted. In a few moments he came out the back way, where his litte brother and some other boys were at play, and deliberately aimed a pistol at his little brother and fired, bat missed his brother and shot his own hand. He then ran into the house next door again, and in a moment a very large crowd collected who were eager to administer lynch law on the spot, but for the timely interference of my husband and the officers who, after a mo ment's refusal from Mr. . gained ad mittance to the house and took him into cus tody and oonveyed him to the watch house. The next morning Mr E C. Eckloff came to me and desired me to withdraw the charge siying that it would go very hard with my brother, as there were two or three other charged pending against him, and that my charge was a very serious one?I having been under the doctor's care from the kicks and in juries received. He said my brother was very badly hurt, and was truly sorry for what lie had done. I told Mr. Eckloff that my brother might call himself, and in the meantime I would ooniult my husband and we would weigh the matter between us Soon after, my brother oalled and asked the forgiveness of myself and husband, eaying I that he was truly sorry for what he had done, and that if we would forgive him this time he would henceforth become a quiet and better citiien Taking all things into consideration, my husband wrote a note to Capta n Birch, stating that in tho case of the People against W. Hatton, wherein I was the complainant, (the defendant was own brother to theoom plainant,) and that he had proved to us that he was truly sorry for what he had done?that he waa penitent, and promised to profit by his paat conduct, and henceforth become a peace able, worthy, and respectable citisen?and under the existing circumatances my husband solicited the lenity of the court in his behalf . His honor, on reading the note, dismissed the case; and I hope my brother will profit by the past. These are the plain facts in the case without exaggeration Makgarbt A Harris, No 175 I) street. I trust the public will consider me justified in asking the lenity of the court in the above case when they consider that the defendant was own brotktr to Mr* Harris, and that it would have been hard for us. when in another country, to think that our brother was in durance vile, and that perhaps we should never return to see him alive P F Harris.
