evening stak. Local Intelligence. "Panne th? Pip**."?At the clo?e of an election oonte^L, the triumphant party always feel disposed to honor their succeeaful candi date* with a serenade; r.nd hence. recently, the afreets were, at night, enlivened by the sounds of instrumental melody. A young man, named George Wataon, on Monday last, without consultation with any person, ("aotmg on his own book," as be al leges ) got up a subscription, in order to pay the expenses of a serenade, as the heading of the list expressed, to Dr Magruder, Dr M<!ler, I respectively eleeted Ald?rmen frcm the Firs' end Second Wads.) and Mr. Hoc he, the Union candidate f)r re election as City Collector, lie, nich this view, called upon numerous friends of these gentlemen, collecting variona amounts from one te three dollars; bnt a con tributor. suspecting tbat there was fraud in tke young man's movements, took the paper from him, and thus put an end to a further prosecution of the badness. And the aforesaid contributor, who had promptly paid two dol lars, threatened to hare Watson prosecuud. unless he should return the money assessedcn the subscribers, which he did not do. Pa*sing by Justice (soddard's o(L *e, on Sit urday afternoon, we noticed a la ge crowd in attendance; much good nafn-e prevalent. There w;is young Watson, arraigned bef :re ;ie Justice, charged with obtaining money under false pre ences. Mr. John Wilson be ing tbe pro;ecMtor. Fourteen of tbo gentlemen who had sub. scribed were severally examined. to the fol lowing effect: Justice?Did jou subscribe to the setonade? Witness, (smil ng)?Yes sir; leave adollar.

Tbe prisoner, on being interrogated, did not deny having collected money, but said all the ribscribers did no' pay, and 'hatonly twenty six dollars cai;e in*o Lis bands and he pro duced a witness, who said that, about euht o clock, en Monday night, he heard Mr Wat acn at Iron 11 all, engaged in a conversation with Mr. KicCher, tbe leader of a band, as to employing his musical for es for the serenade; but that the term? were too high, as Mr.-Wat son informed Mr. Fischer The question was asked by one of tho sub ?cribera to another, " When is the to take place?" and tbe an&rcer wis, "I don't know." Many jokes were cracked, and the victims indulged in immoderate laughter a' one another's expense. All but the prisoner were in high glee Tbe j stice leqaired the young man to give bail in each uf tbe fourteen cases, in tho sum of $100 ; in default of which he was committed to appear duringtthe present term of tho crim inal court.

Thomis C Donw's Statijmkut ?Mr. E litor: A communication signed T C Donn appears in the Organ of tbe 15;h iustan', in which he characterize-, as wholly inoorrect, the state ment of the S'.ar. in rega. d to the action cf the Fourth Ward C >mmissioner8 concerning cer tain perrvns whote right to vote .?as awaiting the decision of the circuit court Tho lan guage of his deciil fully substantiates every word's of the Star's statement. He says " tho second billot box or hat was to be u-ed, pro vided we received tba docision'of the court." Now if the court decided that certaCp persons were legal voters, and that their bailor ought to be revived. what neei was there for a sec ond box? Was it that the commissioners ar rogating to themselves supreme ju isdiction in the cjse intended to receive the decision un der protes* ? Or if. hs they so loudly protested, they ir.tonded to act honestly and fairly, why did they distinguish between legal natural ized and native votes in the manner of receiv irg theDj ! That they had anobjeo' and design in thus separating the votes none can doubt. Mr Donn etate3 the let er referred only to the privileges of pardoned convicts. Dies ho sup po^e the public to silly as to believe that Mr Jirai'ey would insult a tnazistratt, by icstruc ir.g him upon a law familiar to every school bey ' Or doe", any one. conversant with Mr. C?ad!ey's stylo, believe that he would waste ink and paper in writing three paragraph? or m jre, in slucidatirg a law so generally knowii, when a< nuny <fc:de convey his meaning ? It is a libel upon the public undemanding to hint such a thing Mr Donn partly believed so too, for bo expresses a doubt whether he re id ail that was in tbe le' :er. But if he did, he iiw no knowledge of any other sul j^ct be ing toucheJ in it. Ij not tuls equivocation and doubt, evidence cf certainty as to the tiuth of Lii era statement. He makes but a 44 poor out of it," and hu communication will but serve to strengthen the yublic, ei it his me, in the absolu'e trtth of the supposition that they had a other than honesty and fair deal ing, and that mere was contained in that letter than applied to convicts Mr. Donn rolled the certificate up, and ban led thein to me. His supposition of my having the letter will not, J fear satisfy the pn^lic; he shou'd be more careful of official documents when the lit>cr:y of the people is involved. It is duu to the public that e'ther the author or receivershould produce that let ter. R. B. OWENS, ill* Assessor.
