Ex-part*.?Julia Elixa Plumscll, on habeas corpus This case, contrary to general ex pectation, came to an abrupt determination on Friday last, before his honor, Judge Mor sell, in the City Hall, by the withdrawn1 of the complaint of the mother of the child in ques tion. which had been taken l'rom her by its father, and to recover which she had institu ted proceedings. Consequently, the writ of habeas corpus was dismissed, and the child re main3 in the custody of its father.

The City Council!of Washington, yesterday evening, passed similar resolves, ana, together with the bar of this county, will further testi fy their respect for the deceased by attending on the funeral services and following his re mains to the place of sepulture. Sportsmen should not fail to look at the beautiful stock of fowling and fishing appara tus which e Tucker & Co., Pennsylvania avenue, nearly opposite Browns1, have lately received from the North. Flattering ourself that we are not a little of a connoisseur in such matters, wc confess that wo never before saw fo complete and interesting an assortment of choice implements for sport on land and water in a city of the size ef Washington. Much of it was very recently imported, and it embrace? specimens of all the latest improvements for fishing and fowling which h-vc turned out to be worth adoption. Complaints of thr Police.?Wc are re qucfted by several police officers to inquire by what authority the commissioners or the Asylum turn prisoners out ?>f the Penitentiary der-ar.ment. They contend that it is useless to irnpote the expense on the corporation ot" conveying the prisoners to the work house if they are 40 be discharged the next day. This course tends to destroy the energy of the po lice ofiiccrs, an evidence of which might be soen at the guard hou-e this morning, where prisoners wno might have been committed were d;-missed by the magistrate. Where the ? ommissioncrs got the authority is a mystery tithe police. Arrests, ?tc.?William Shepherd was ar rested and taken before Justice Bates, and ac cused of attempting to pick a gentleman1;! pocket at the railroad station. Though the circumstances were suspicion", there was no evidence sufficient to juxtity a commitment, and he was discharged. Daniel Connelly was arrested yesforday for an assaftltand battery on august us Bos?e. He w.w hold to bail for his appearance at the criminal court by Justice Bates. Mechanical Cub.?This association of young gentlemen will give their first grand ric-ric at Arlington Springs, to-morrow. The ooat will leave the Fourteenth street bridge at S9ven o'clock in tb"i morning. The arrange ments are such as shall insure to tbc company a very pleasmt time. Music, and dancing, an l good eating, and an exuberance of chcer ful spirits, constitute the elements of a happy entertainment. Mr. John L. Wrioiit, one of the an'stants of the Doorkeeper of the United States House of Representatives, is said to have been un ceasing in his exertions at Burlington, New Jersey, to those who wero there recently wounded by the accidcnt on the Camden and Amboy railroad. Mrs. Botce.?We heard, several days ago, that this lady had died of the injuries received by her in consequence of the re?ent Camden and Amboy railroad accidcnt; but it is now our happiness to state, on information which wo believe to be reliable, that she is in a fair way to recover. * Rich'd nap.nincton, who was severely in jured by falling from the gable end of a house on C street, where he was at work on Satur day, is slowly recovering. He foil a distance of over thirty feet, his face striking on the pavement. ? Georgetown Roddies.?Mr. Editor-. Will you allow me, through the columns of the Star, to call the attention of the proper au thorities of Georgetown to the act of a gang of young rowdies, (half grown boys.) who ar? a great nuisance to the neighborhood in the vicinity of Forrest Hall. Dtr'ng the day they make themselves conspicuous by staring in ladie3 fa?es, and insulting little girls. At night the neighbors arc disturbed by their yells and very profuse uso of the foulest lan guage. Their place of rendezvous appears to bo in the neighborhood of the Telegraph Office, and in this eonnsction it may be proper to in vite the attention of the president or superin tendent of the Morse line to the fact, and be tween them and the authorities perhaps the nuisance may be abated. All these persons are well known, and their names could be given ; but psrhaps, this will be sufficient. Your friend, Puelicola.
