EVENING STAR. LOCAL iwtzlligxhcz. ? ? Cosyictio* or Raglan.?On Monday a mu latto man named George raglan wu arraigned before the Criminal Court, charged with hav ing, towards the cl?>*e of May last, instigated by the Devil, inflicted blow- on the head of Francis Fitxnatrick. with ?? swingle-tree; front the effects of which. several day* thereafter, death ensued i t tho Washington Infirmary. It appears that Raglan had gone to the stable in which Fitxpatrick was employed aj n hostler; an altercation ensued between them and a personal rencontre, when Raglan seiied a swingle-tree, and with it inflicted the blows on Fitxpatrick After the latter had been re moved to the Infirmary, m-iyiin a pvtu scixed upon him, mortification of tho wounds ensued, and he died. It wa? supposed by one of the physicians that death was produced by the joint causa of the drinking habits of the de ceased. and the effect of tho blow. We were not present during the trial, but such we learn ed from a gentleman who was prcw;nt arc, briefly, the facts. Mr Key conducted tho case for the United states, and Mr. Ingle made a speech on that side of the question. The prisoner*was defen ded by Messrs. Ratcliffe and Maury. Much ability was displayed by tho respective counsel. The arguments having been closed yesterday afternoon, a few minutes after throe o'clock, the ease was given to tho jury, with instruc tions. They were not absent more than a quarter of an hour, when they returned with a verdict of %HiUf?as iadioted?of murder in the first degree. Mr. Ratcliffo demanded a poll of the jury, -whereupon their names were called, and each one responded "guilty John Cruickshank. i-wac A. Montrose, Jesse Lipscomb, Samuel C. Espy, Thomas Tanner, Jeremiah M. Smith. Walter Stewart, Joseph Lyons. Aaron Divine. Jacob Barker, Richard Harrison, Theodore Meade. There was a large attendance of spectators throughout the trial, and much interest was manifested to learn thtf result. The verdict of " murder' satisfied that curiosity, and rov eral inquiries, in a low tone, were made: 44 When is he to bo hung ?" The prisoner was remanded. Sentence deferred. Mr. Ratcliffo has moved for a new trial. Taxation?It may be interesting, just at this time, to publish tho following extract from the official report of the proceedings of the late Board of Common Council: "The bill imposing taxes for the year 1855 being under consideration, Mr. Busey moved to amend the bill by striking out the word ?'seventy" wherever it occurs in the bill; and inserting the words ?-sixty-five." "Mr. Smith moved to amend tho amend ment by inserting the word 'sixty" and stri king out the words '-sixty-five," which amend ment was accopted by Mr. Busey. "The question being taken thereon, it was decided in the affinnativo by tho following vote: "Yeas?Messrs. Newman. Smoot, Donn, Walker, Duneanson, Ball, Clements. Buscy, Killmon. McCauley, Ruff. Smith, Gill, and Davis, (President)?14. "Nays?Messrs. Barr, Plant, J. W. Davis, and Bamberger?4." The result was, the taxes were reduced from seventy to sixty cent3 in the hundred dollars, just before the late election; but on the meet ing of the new boards, a majority of Know Nothing members having been returned a bill vu rushed through the Board of Common Council restoring the taxes to seventy cents, and is now pending in the Board of Aldermen. City Ordinances.?Tho polico officers are frequently made busy by violationsof our aiu nicipal laws. Offences of this sort seldom oc cupy the attention of the polico generally at the same time; but for months fix wards of the city may be quiet, and the officers not making returns of cases sufficient to pay their wages, while the seventh will furnish more than the officers are able to attend to. At the present time, violations of tho city laws are numerous, and some of our officers are very busy. Whisky causes many of them, and the police have to watch "the Captain" cloecly. in order to prevent greater mischief. Captain Whisky's orders have produced strange occur rences during the fix months past, some of his follower? have lost their lives, others their liberty, and many their property. Growth or Wicked.xess.?Ann Talbert, colored, was held to bail for court by Justice Morscll, yesterday, for enticing a girl fourteen J ears of age, named Adel Williams, to a awdy house. We noticed a case of this char acter two dnjs since, and which has not been disposed of, but is for tri?l to-lay. The en jereemeut of the laws will break down this tendency to evil, and that course should he strictly pursued by thoso whose duty it is to protect the community from harm. Ann Talbert was also made to give security for her peaceful behavior for twelve months, she having committed an assault aud battery on Ann McGuirc.

Crampsey. of the Second Ward of Washington city, asks ns to sny that he spent one evening in a Know Nothing lodge in the course of the year 1S51 ; that he went there only through being deceived as to the character of tho meeting he was asked to attend ! And that finding the objects of the association such as heeould not approve, he declined having anything to do with it, and has not since been at one of their .meetings. Understanding that the free manner in which he expressed nU disapprobation of tho Know Nothing-', thuir aims and organization, had induced them long since to expel him. lie had taken no thought of his single visit to their lodge in tho Seventh Ward of Washington, until Saturday last, when he saw the name of an ancestor of his in the list of the dwellers in and frequenters of Nineveh, 2,709 years ago. lie makes this disclaimer in tho belief that the name like his published a few days since is the Nineveh list, was intci.de 1 for that of his ancostor. Nineveh.?Air. Editor: In looking over the list of names of the inhabitants of Ninc veh? I find that my name is registered as one living in the Seventh Ward of that ancient city. I deem it due to my friends to give a plain statement as to the cause of its being there. Upwards of a year ago I was seduced into the order, with many other young men, with "come. lc?'? take a walk." I took a walk, and was initiated in the order, but that was all, and God knows that was enough. After I fot home, I be^an to reflect what I had done. found that I had taken an oath or obligation administered by one not authorised by law, to degrade my own kindred?yes, even my own flesh and blood; but that was not all. I be came a part of the party that was. as I believed, plotting against or premeditating treason against tho constitution and laws of my country. I came to the conclusion to re sign, but was deprived of that privilego by one who is famous for hatching lies. The charge was, that I was seen in the Smithsonian lot in close conversation with Mr. , a noted Anti, at twelve o'clock at night. That charge must havo been very grave and unpar donable, as I was notified of my expulsion and delivery from a band of secret conspirators. Very respectfully, July 11?It John L. Marcero*. ALEXANDRIA CORRESPONDENCE. Alexandria, July 11, 1855. Our City Councils were in session last night, and transacted, among other things, tho fol lowing business: Taxes were refunded to R. G. Violett, C. Schaffer. and W. R. Glascock, and the petition of T. 0. Urien refused. A bill in relation to nuisanccs. and another concerning theatrical and other performances, were reported from the committee on general laws, and passed. The committee on general laws reported ad versely to th?> Sunday liquor law. denying the right of tho Council to legislate on the subject, and recommending an application for nn amendment to the town charter in that re spect. The application of P. D..Icy concerning a five dollar Corporation note lo^t. was referred to the Auditor for final settlement. Improvements were ordered on Wilkes street; a new gutter in front of tho Firu Insurance office, and D. P. llooe's residence. G. W. Nelson was relieved of taxation, in conscquenco of services rendered by vacci nating the poor. Two hundred eophs of the nuisanco bill were ordered to be piinted; and the Councils adjourned. The pic-nac of the Methodist Protestant Sab bath school passed off most pleasantly. The exercises of the day commenced with prayer by the pastor, followed by an oration by Ilio rome Gpie Claughton. and recitations by Masters Roxburv. Plain, Warfiold, and Price, interspersed with beautiful hymns by the chil dren.

Attempt at Scicike is Couht.?Yesterday afternoon a man uauied Charles ILiiing, alias Hitrfiog, while confined in tho lock-up of the Criminal Court room, stabbed himself in the right side with a butcher knife, which ho had used in eating his iuod at jail, and had brought .'o?reted on his person into court. Drs. Morr n and Riley were called, and found the wound not at a'l daogorou-*, the blade having struck a r**?- w'" be remembered that Harin^ was indicted for arson, in setting firo to a hou>c which he in part occupied, belonging to Mr. George W. Bowers. Uu the alarm, persons entered the house, and found Hiring gagg( d and his hands tied, ami he was arrested on suspicion of having set the fire, and tied and gagged himself?although he stoutly protested that it was the work of robbers, who had been in tho house and fled. Yesterday, as stated in our court report of that date, his caso was cal l?d in the Criminal Court for trial, but w;is afterwards ordered to be continued till the September term lining a German, and una ble to speak English. Haring. while the ques tion of continuance was pending, conversed through an interpreter, Mr. Fncsc. and re marked : "Life has no charms for me; I would as soon die as live with tho weight of suspicion resting on me;" and ho added that he bad already been confined in jail a long time. This created no apprehension on the part of others that he was about to do self-violence, and noi.n knew that he had a weapon; but he had hardly been placed back into the lock-up when ho drew the knife and committed the deed?threw the knife intoabuckct. and fell back, exclaim ing, in German.
