EVE NIN G ST A R. I LOCAL INTELLIGENCE j Edccatiosal ?Washington is well provided ?with many good institutions for tb.e instruc tion of youta and the time is fast approaching ?when the sch<d.istic duties will be resumed. In addition to those especially mentioned by -oron a previous occasion are the following ' Rittenhouse Academy, corner of Third street iir.d Loui-iara avenue?O. C Wight principal, ?nd R T. Taylor assistant. Tho ac?demic tr.*ar will commence on the 3d of September The institution has a deservedly gooa reputa tion. and the system of instruction is such as "to elicit the commendation of those mure im mediately interested in the arrangements. Cottage llome School, for young ladies, Mas sachusetts avenue, between Tenth and Elev enth streets ; the sixth academic year to com mence on Monday, the 3d of September. Miss M A. Cox principal. A very excellent insti tution. and such as parents desire for tho edu cation of their children. The Union Acadcmy, the fifth annual sr - t>ion of it. and the sixth of the Union Female Female Academy?will open on the first Mon day of September. These institutions, wo are happy to testify, arc so organized and con structed as to secure the mental and moral iraining which will best prepare the pupi's for the realities of life. % Thistles.?Thea;t making an appropria tion to defray the general expen- is 01 the Cor poration for the year ending Juno 30, 1S06, contains the following item : " For the extir ?? ution of thistles, one hundred and five dol ars." At this time there are abundant crops of the thistle in various parts of the city, but, as they ar^ not -'ripe for the harvest," the work ?; uexurpation" has been delayed' Instead <>f '-extirpating" the weed btfore it comes to ?ced. and thus effectually destroying it, the work authorised by law is not commcnced until after it comes tose->d, which are naturally deposited for the next year's growth. It seems to be conceded by the law-making power that the annual appropriation must continue to be niaJe. in all time to come , and hence, to ex pend the money, there must bo thistles to up ioot. to cut down, or, in the legal phrase, "ex lirpa'c!" We repeat, the work is always delayed until they come to reed, instead of its being com mence 1 as soon as the wi id peeps iuto day light. It may be that the thistle is considered or namental daring its vigorous bloom, and that the "extirpation'" is peifoimcd in its decay ing state merely because the law ea"< for tho appropriation! Attack bv Higowaymeh.?As Lieut. Bush T-id W. Hunter. U. S. N., was returning to "his home in Alexandria county, last night, about dusk, and near the junction of the Alex ::airia and Columbia turnpike, two ruffians *n Ideuly mado their appearance; ore of whom seized the bridle reins, while the other, calling ?nron 1dm to 41 stop,' jumped into his carriage. The lieutenant seized his gun, the pointing of which at the highwayman on toe ground cau?el the scounurtl to relax his hold; and then, with the butt of the gun, he knocked his companion from the carriage. The villains took to their heels, finding that they had en countered an antagonist equal to the emer gency. But for the dissuasion of his son, who was with him. Mr. Hunter would have fired CD his villanous assailants. Ahotiier CosTBiarTio*.?On Saturday last, the intelligence of the jrreat suffering, which ?t present exists at Noriolk.

The tin %!fi) Ext tbsioi or run Amebic ah Kiflkmes will take pi j ;e to morrow, and the splendid stsauier B.tltimoic will take the company to that favorite wateiing pla;e, Pi ney Point. Arrangements have been made to be there at 3 o'clock, p. m , when th<?sc who wish to partake of tne hospitalities of the mansion, the invigorating bath, or the deli eacie- of the season, can be gratified But, ap.irt from the means of enjoyment thus af forded, the pioceeds of the excur-iou are tc be applied to the relief of the Virginia tuffer ers by the yellow fever, a fait that should not be forgotten. Qi'iCk. Ketcbh.?A very well-dre*?:d man applied at the guard hou.-c last ni?bt for lodg ing He was accommodated, and tbis m jruin^ di charged at the usual hour. Whiie the offi cers were awaiting the arrival of tpe jastioe U try the corporation cases, the same lodger wa: brought in so beastly intoxicated a-; to requir< the labor of tw.j able bodkd police oficeis U rut him into the cell. He must have Wanted t home daring the u dull season''?a home when he could be well employed- He was <?nl t tne farm, where he can find plenty of woil ue *er the direction of an able overseer. Repbehehsibi.e.?On Thursday, wiiilo a number of the children who attend the . hooi of the Young Catholic's Friend Society, in th? Northern Liberties, were pea -eably walking along the neighborhood of St. Patrick'? Church a gang of half-grown lads assail' J them with rude language and with stones. The presence of a police officer, at least o-jca sionally, is required in that vicinity, to rc rtrtin thevisciou* propensities of the juveniles in question, who are a terror to the neighbor huol. Such Northern Ub*rtit* should not be indulged with impunity. Mavli>'0 OrriciAts.?This is an offeree that seldom eoeo unpunished in this District, but still we hear of its frequent tccurrence. A short time since, an officer had bis entire clothing torn from him by a female ; anothci had his head cut by a m:in; and, yesterday, another in the discharge of bis duty met with a resistance that he will not soon forget. A warrant has been issued for the offender, and he will probably be made to suffer more than the officer. Bridal Parties.?Yesterday, Brown's ho tel accommodated two of those happy compa nies. Mr. John D. DeBell was married to Miss Anna Daniel, both of Virginia. The eeremmy was performed by the Rev. Joha C Smith The happy couple departed this morn iag for their future borne. The other pair were married in an adjacent county of Mary land, and are about starting on a tour through the Northern States and Canada. ICOXmXICATED.

His rendeiing ot Scotch song, especially, is sweet, simple, ani plaintive beyond expression. A tew evenings since?very late?when none of his u-ual listeners were 'awake, (save, in deed. the stars, for they do seem to listen, tea.) he poured forth up>n the still calm night air the rich wealth of melody, which he has h'Qg so lav isblyj bestowed upon those in this immediate neighborhood.

A*gu<t Jl Ittai Explanation.?'We stated, yesterday, that 4- the Marion Rifles, in worthy imitation of the Franklin Fire Company and the Ameticac Rifles, intend, next week, to give an exclusion down the river?the proceeds to be applied to tho relief of the Portsmouth, Gospott, and Norfolk Bufle rs by the yellow fever." A member of the Marion Ilifles, however, has informed as that their benevolent enterprise is not in "imitation" of the other companies; named, but was projected at least as soon a^ those of the Franklin Fire Company and the Marion Rifles. We willingly make the de sired explanation; bat, at tho same time, woald say that all of them arc eaually entitled h public commendation for their benevolent efforts in beha'fof the distressad. The Alarm op Firb, near li o'clock last night, was caused by the burning of a stable located in the First Ward, and belonging to Mr John Wilson. We arc informrd that .? :v eral stables have been burned on and near the same spot during a few years past The fire men were on the ground, and went speedily to work. But with all their efforts, they could nat save the building, a frame one, from de struction.

Georgetown, August 22. 1855. The advertising columns of the Star will give to persons abroad some idea of the num ber and extent of the excellent seminaries of learning with which our city abounds. The first on the list is the Georgetown College. Th is time-honored institution is situated upon the b'gli ground immediately on the western extremity of our city. A more appropriate I spot for such an institution could not, proba I b!y, be found in the Union. Its elevated pi I sition affords an unobstructed view of nearly I the entire District of Columbia, besides por-, I ti >nsof Maryland and the Old Domini*-n. From I the upper stories and dormitories of tho main I buildings, the National Metropolis, with its I Capitol, President's House, and other public I buildings. Navy Yard, Arsenal, and Wa?;hiiig I t'?n Monument, together with portions ?f the I high lands of Maryland aud Virginia, a p irt I of Alexandria, Arlington House. Analostan Inland, and s??iuo twenty mile.-of the beautiful I Potomac, lies full in view Indeed, in every I direction in which tho eye is directed, the most gorgeous and romantic s.:euery, natural I and auificial, lies spread out before it in per I fcetly enchanting loveliness. As aa evidence I of the superiority of its location, in point of I healthiness, but a single death has occurred among its students since it was founded Of I the efficiency and usefulness of the faculty, it I is useless for u* to say anything. The scores I aud hundreds of brilliant scholars which have I be?n sent forth from it to adorn the various I positions, both in church and state, medical I aiculty, and tillers of the soil, at home an-l I abroad, has given to the Georgetown Colk 'c audits faculty a world-wide fame. Wc learn from the Georgetown Advocate taat Wm. H Edcs, Esq., has resigned his scat I in trio Board of Common Council. The time j for an election to fill the vacancy, has not yet I been made public. Wo have also h?*ard it I rumored that James Goddard, Esq.. will more j th:m likely be the Kuow Nothing candidate j for the vacancy. Wc regret to learn that the call upon ?>ur I citizens to assist tho suffering at Norfolk and I Gosport. ha3 not been responded to at was I hoped and anticipated. Up to yesterday morn I ing, but a very small amount indeed had been I contributed This omission, we arc satisfied I does not grow out of a want of benevolence I on the part of our people, but forgetfulness. I We. therefore, renew our notice of last week. I All mms of money, whether large or small. I left with Mr. W. II Erie?, will be promptly I forwarded to the above named point.;; arid I we sincerely hope that our citizens generally I wid come forward immediately in their usual I libera! spirit, and contribute an amount which I s mil do credit to themselves and the place of , I the?r residence.
