KV'KNING 8TAR. I* o c a 1 I ntelligence.' Tbb Sti ret Casvass ?Ever since the a*ninaut party in oar munioip%l councils elected men of their own political stamp only ? jadgea of the approaching election fcr foor of the seven wards of Washington, an :mptes K? m ^Tn T!7t *?n,rV v*0** theit aoM Know Nothing fellow oUiiens, (hat it ia pro posedto carry the election by cross fr!ud The idea of preventing any considerable party ft0" Ket?d8 a representative in U"onerew each Precinct th?ht?lJr OCCMlon' ? tkin* unknown to L? i ?J7??l?Ur municil,aJ It being known that the?e commissioners belong to a ?eeret political society whose obligations re quired one of ita members who was a witness in a jury trial at Lowell, Massachusetts, to deny on oath, for three boura, his connection wir a it, which he admitted ere he was per mitted to leave the witness stand, and the fact that however worthy and respectable thry m*y be moat of these commissioners are compara tively unknown to those among us who differ from them in politics, are together aofflciont to acoount for the excitement at this moment ex isting in Washington agaiast the presumption that they design cmvissing the ballota in se oret, with the eye of no political opponent upon them If the obligations of the frater nity of which they are oath bound mem bers. extend half as far a* their opponents believe through the revelations made in the Lowell tnal, and by Mr. Rains in bis recent discus,ion with Judge Caskie, the p!an ot permitting its members to count the ballJti in secret, is simply a plan by which the [ eop'.e of this city may be defraudjd of their rights with perfect impunity, if the commissioners choose to do so. As for the oath whioh the commissioners take, if they regard their oaths taken in their lodges as su perior in its obligations, as the Know Nothing witness in the Lowell tria did, there is no other safety that at present occurs to us for the righU of the opposite par.y, who have been denied the privilege of a representative in the fonr wards, but by keeping a record of the rotea vf the anti Enow Nothings by trusty talis man outside of the poll windows, the statement of each such voter to be verified by the exhibi tion of his open ballot. The following preamble and resolutions were passed umnimously last right at the largest anti-Know Nothing meeting ever held ia this city: Whereas, the Know Nothing Councils of this city having elected for some of the Wards, boards of eleotioneommiaaionera. all of whom are members ?f an oath bound aeorei p?litieal association. refusing to those opposed to them the right and courtesy of a representation in thoae boards, whirh was never before done ia this community: And whereas, the Know No thing lower council aforesaid hive refused to pass a resolution requesting tha said election boards to permit one or two unofficial parsons of both parties to remiin in the room while they may be canvassing the ballots, which privilege has always heretofore been con:eded in every Ward of Washington: Beit there fore? Resolved, by this meeting of the Anti Know Nothing party of this city, That all who vote for the anti Know Nothing candi dates in the municipal election on McnJay next be requested to show the ticketB they vota, and jtve their names to be recorded by the anti Know Nothing talesman, to be sta tioned at each poll in this city; this course be ing deemed necessary by this meeting to guaid the rights ot tha anti Know Nothing voters of Washington against the possible perpetration of fraud. The propriety of this step will be obvious to all sincerely anxious for ihe prsservatioc of the rights of thecitisen, and that this elec tion m*y pass off without giving ri*e to the belief among a large portion of the Washing ton public, that it has been unfairly con ducted. We may add that the adoption of the pre amble and resolution above printed, was caused by the receipt of information, that a majority of the election commissioners of ona of the packed wards had peremptorily refuBed to permit any one but themselves to remain in the room as heretofo e, whilst the ballots were being counted In this content those who are not openly against Know Ncthingiem easy fairly be set down aa for it, and will be so regarded by their Anti-Know Nothing fellow citiisns, who have b?-en deliberately deprived by the ma jority of the present councils of any other safe faard for their rights, than the r lan agreed on y the meeting la*t night Bbllicosb ?In an artiole, yeaterday after noon, we alluded, briefly, to several reoent lights, and attributed the mo.ing cause to "whiskey and politics " We did not mean to say, aa the atrict grammarian would inter pret the paragraph, that aom? of them [the whiskey and the politics] were required to "give security to keep the peace ' Alia ion waa. of course, made to the combatants. However, had it not been for the rye" and the p litical excitement, the parties would, probably, have remained at peace?their tem ple of Janus closed?none bearing marks of physical violence on thsir persons. Ihis subj-ct calls to remembrance an inci dent whicn occurred in Philadelphia, some years ago. We were a spectator at the Mayor's Court, when a poor hat less and jacketlese son of Erin was arraigned for a petty offence against the Corporation statute,-, waich are vigorously prosecuted, more especially when tho weak and friendless are the transgressors. (RespecUtility is oftentimes a shield whiah the watchman's espantoou cannot dent nor splinter; and this we say by way of paren thesis, and of general application ) Tha Philadelphia Mayor, John Swift, ad dressing the heman sukjjet before him, re marked, "I'm sorry to see you here, sir." ' An faith, it's sorry / am, yer honor." ' You have been betuving b_ ily disorderly, making a ooise. "I assure yer h^nor yer wrong. 41 Why, bere is the officer wbo arrested jou, and brought you here ' "lints true, but I made no noise a: all. at ail."' "If yoa didn't misbehave who did'" ??Sure, th? %chi*l>y wiJin m-,for I nr. piccbl* when I mtob'rV This answer convc:s.d the assemblage with laugti er, in wh>*h ib3 'layer joined heartily; and he dismissed the prisoner with a friendly warning to av^il the enemy which had caused hi< arrest. As was the ca*e with this Son of Lrin. so with sons of this and of all ether countries 'Sure, the whiskey wilin" involves them in difficulties. [COM MUVIC AT ZD. Evbrt bight miuded citizen is disgusted with the palpable attempts of tho Know Nothing Council to keep themselves in power by compiling, if necessary, the ballot box. They have violated the commonest rule of hones y and deoency by packing the Commis sioners of Election for next Monday And when a proposition is made to give some show of fiirneso tu tho friends of the Union tioket by inviting two respectable citiiens to be present at the balloting, and at tho counting after the closs of the poils, the unparalled recklessness of the midnight conspirators is *jtnyWted ^eir refusal to request it offi t"*tbicalh ?

Music.?This is the afternoon for the eon cert, bv the Marine Bind, at the Capitol Ground*. According to a distinguished wri ter, 'Music says everything whieh the sonl feels and foretells, if most mysterious and nao*t elevated It is the manifestation of an order of ideas and sentiments superior to what hi man speech can expteis It is the revela tion of the infinite."

If the latter be their intention, it is net to be presumed that they will at once give them selves up to luxurious habits, but post wisely. [COM MT!* I CAT ED ^ ihere is A harmless little busy-body in the Common Council of Washington, whose futile efforts to bring himself into favorable public notice, we really pity. As the spokesman and ehief workman of the dark lantern party, he proposed that the votes of the citizens at the election to be held next Monday, shall not be counted unless the ballots were prepared on paper of a certain color! What is Know Nothingi*m coming to ? * Handsome Apparatus -?At the recent trial of the splendid suction built by Ives for the Franklin Fire Company of this city, we are informed that the distance thrown was one hundred and seventy feet, whioh quite satis fied the members of that efficient company. We regret that for want of room we cannot describe the splendid workmanship of the ap paratus, but will say that it is very oreditable to the builder. A Seniors Accident ?One of the men em ployed in the blacksmith shop of the work on the extension of the Capitol was etruck, this morning, on the temple by the lever ef the ste im-hammer, which got out of gear by the falling or flying out of a key.

Going to Europe ? Among the passengers by the steamihip Arago, to leave New York, on Saturday, are Mrs Alexander, (wife of Mr. John Alexander,) and their son and daughter, of this city, who intend visiting Paris. Dismissed.?Margaret Thompson was taken before Justice Bates, charged with stealing a pocketbook and money. After a hearing of the oase she was dismissed, because the evi dence waa not sufficient to held her for trial at court. Worse ?Fitipatrick, who was so badly wo jnded by Geo. Ragland, is still at the infir mary, and we are told his condition is more critical. A Card.?Mr. Editor?Understanding that there is ta repert in circulation placing Mr. D. W. Stewart in a wrong light before his fellow citizens about the iffair in front of Brown'* Hotel, on Saturday evening, I take the li'>erty of asking a place in your columns, so as to show the whole affair as well as the scene that occurred at the watch house. i was present in front of Brown's doriDg the time Mr. Wise was speaking, and when ho withdrew, and the cheers had mbsided, we were surrounded by a party of ruffians; when a cowardly attack was made upon Mr Stewart by some dcien or more, and Mr. S., in trying to defend himself, was arrested by two of the l>rave, chivalrous, heroie and never failing-to do their duty watchmen, who, instead oi ar resting the perpetrators of the assault, whom they very plaiuly saw, (as Mr. S was struck while in their possession,) they took him, as they said after the oase was stated at the guard house, "to keep him from being hurt." A gentleman pres nt at the guard house, after hearing the facts, romirked that it was a very impartial arrest, as it proved that there wts partiality exercised towards the perpe trators of the assault, because they were, in the language of the Organ, ' good Americans " When tbe respectable, polite, and gentlemanly Captain of the Watch called him a "liar' in the sanctuary of his office, surrounded by those who were under his command, but who, when satisfaction was required, retracted and beoame as submissive as a child. Now, Mr. Editor, these are the facts of the case as they ooourred ; and my objeot in mak ing them public is to place the friends of Mr. Stewart in the right light, as ho is known to a large portion of tbe citizens of Washington to be a young man of good monl character and gentlemanly deportment, and also to show my fellow citizens the manner in which the laws are carried out by the men having charge of their execution. This is not the first outrage that the writer of thi* has evi denced upon the laws by these very men who are not only being paid for defending them, but should be looked to for protection by every respectable oitisen under such circum stances Yours, Ae , May 29?It Am Ambrican.
