Evening star. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ? ar.ovjrn, akocsi). "?Yesterday] afternoon, between four and five o'clock, a well-dressed man waa seen on Pennsylvania avenu?s. near Twelfth street, uuder rather ex traordinary ciicumstances. If bis life had de pended on "walking a chalk-line," ere this he w. u!d have been numbered with the phy sically dcfanct. Broad as 13 tho sidewalk, it was n"t to'; wide for his style of locomotion. Either fr-Jin r>ftcr-dinner indolence, or over fatigue?charity would incline to the latter? he made iig-i*ig paths : pitching first toward the houses, and ihcn diverging to the curb, with extreme difficulty prvvrrving his equili brium. We question whether any eold-watcr advocate could have better performed the feat cf thus ''bobbin' around,'' and avoiding a lun h into a cellar, or a "spill'' into the gutter. It sttmed that the j-erforincr on this occasion de bribed his figures with mathematical pre cision. and with a due regard to the centre of gravity! The movements of the individa.*!1 attracted marked aUontion, particularly that of the crowd of 'cntoicon on the ticjisi of the Ki"k wood Uot^e. and <>f ibo numcrat'-i " whips," poll to and nrmpt. always in waiting in that ?icinity. But the m???t :imusing part of the perfortuar ??????, or the scccnd act, was in reser vation. Our hero. after his "bobbin" and pit:bing, apparently uacorsci<m* of the largo crowd of spectators in attendance, came in contact with a lamp-nost! Convulsively he ciasped it. and then illustrated the falbity of t ie poetical axiom, L- Many dangers do environ The man that meddle with cold iron ;: for in this case the meta'lic upright " stoo-l bit htm ' ?? ?*> fiicnd in need.

"Table tuning'" was not a circani-taj re to it, though "spirits" in this tvttfrob-.tbig lui much to do with the per formance. Fvr S.-een minutes or m>i3 he wheeled r -and the (lamp-post) axis, when his uength tr aporariiy ! rt ?-k 1 ?n;. and down he fell to tij groand. hij arm; btill clasping hn mute, metallic friend, llis legs sprn-ldlcd, and hor iiucUl to the sidewalk, his figure described the Ktti r T reversed ?*ch to the regret of all tctotallers.
