evening star. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. rim Pbogbbss.?We copy, with great pleasure, the forty-fifth annual report oa the city >f Washington, by that venerable and ??termed citiien. John Sescford. It is an in teresting and valuable document There have been built-of brick, S four story dwellings, 70 three-story, 48 two-story, and 1 one-story ; of wood, 10 three-story and 122 two-story?in all 154; with 33 additions, and ,8 shops. The total number of dwellings ?n the city is 9,920. and the estimated number r,f inhabitant? 59,801, showing an average of between six and seven inhabitants to each house. There hare been 27.291 running feet of brick pavement laid, of whioh 15,9V0 feet were in the Second Ward. The accessed value of all kinds of real and personal property, including bank and other stocks, for the year ending June, 1850, is $25, ?jfl8,703. The rate of the assessment is sixty cents oer $100, and will yield, when collected, after deducting the discount for prompt pay ment, the sum of $142,412. The true interest of the city requires the assessment to be in creased. as heretofore, to seventy-five cents on the $100, which would enable the Councils to make tb j necessary improvements and in crease the sinking fund. hirst Ward.-? A neat and well-arranged new market-house, with iron supports, has been erected on north K, between Eighteenth and Nineteenth streets, having thirty-two stalls for butchers, all of which have been taken at an average of over $78. There are also convenient benches, all under shelter, on each side, some of which have been taken at $50 each. The building is well covered# i? paved inside, and is two hundred feet in length. The old unsightly market-house ha* been pulled down to make room for an angular enclosure of iron railing. Se -ond Ward.?With the exception of the grading and graveling of some streets in the lower portion of the Ward, the most important improvement is the curbing and paving of Fourteenth street, from K to the northern boundary, on both sidee. with flag crossings a part of the distance. The street itself has also been graded a part of the way. The footway on the east side of Vermont avenue is laid to O street. The grading, enclosing, aiid paring of the circle intersecting Massa chusetts and Vermont avenues and Fourteenth ?nd M streets remains to be done, for which there is an appropriation. Other improve ments have been made, but not of much mag nitude. On the Baptist church, on Thirteenth at root, has been crected a lofty steoplc. with u fine-toned bell. Third IVar^.?In this ward less than u;ual has been done from ward funds, but some good improvements have been aiade in the north east portion in the extersiou ot" footways. A large engine-house has been erected at the in tersection of New York avenuo and Sixth street. The Centre market square is witiiin Mic limits of this ward, having a length ot 500 by 279 feet, (being 1,558 feet circumference,) of which only 530 feet is now built on. The present building is only thirty-four feet wide, including walls; it? elevation inside is sixteen feet. It has a projecting shed of twenty-six feet, divided into two parts for country use. An extension of the building is much wanted to supeisede the present unsightly fixtures. One of the wing? might be erected with a ball above, similar to the one in Balti more. with the Mechanics' Institute above. That hall was built as follows : 9,019 share*. at $5 each 15,095 6,100 do do 32.000 Taid by city (market) 25,000 $102,095 It is 365 by (50 feet, and 05 high. The long room is 256 by oO Fourth Ward.--Somegeneral improvements have been made in various portions of the ward in grading and gravelling, and the carriage-way of C street pebble-paved from x our-and-a-half to Third street. Fifth Wc/d.?Not much has been done in general linirovements. The raiis for the lino of railway from rhe Baltimore depot have been laid, crossing New Jersey avenue to Fir*t street, down First to Maryland avenue, thence down it to the canal at Third street, and con tinuing along Maryland avenue towards the Potomac Bridge, Sixth Ward.?Much has been done in re ducing the grade of streets, making the incline more gradual, the accomplishment of which has necessarily caused the proprietors of prop erty in some eases to underpin their houses seventh JV/\rd.?But little has been done to improve streets, Ac. A new place of wor ship has been erected on square o35. The extension of the Treasury building has commenced, and a considerable portion of the cellar foundation walls laid of hammered granite, thick and solid work. The extension or the General Post Office has all its founda tion and part of the arching laid, with a small e-?m"ieucement of the marble work The ^est win^ of the Patent Offioe will ?oon be ^omp.eted A portiou ?>f it is already occu pied by the Land Office, and soon the Whole of that offioe will be removed to it The eastern room on Seventh utreot has been completed, fi tted up. and is occupied by models of patents, arranged in handsome The work on both extensions of the Capitol has been ex peditiously progressed with, on its exterior, and, as progress has been made in the iron roofing, some of the rooms have been finished and fitted up in a beautiful style The cen tre lome has been removed preparatorv to the erection of the new one, according to the model "?

It is situated on a beautiful site overlooking the city, having around it ample grounds, no portion of which ou-riit ever to be diminished by sale Additional accommodations have been made by the erection of a new building for the steward.

Miss Linie Weston la< ke l as Lvjy Teaxle, and Miss Devlin re peated the part of Maria, but failed to throw sufficient animation or ca^e into the oharactei.

To all whom it ma.t Co*crRjiSom? day? *gr> an article appeared In the Star mention ing a letter received in thia oily, making en ?juiriee in relation to the heirs of Jno. White, who emigrated to thia oountry from the county of Armagh, Ireland, and who, it if believed, left two sons, Abner and William, and to which heir*, when found, there was coming the snug sum of a million and a half of dol lar* From the numerous enquiries made of us in regard to this matter it would appear that there are a great many Armagh de scended Whites in this country, and it is pos sible there may be "a few more left," we would state for their information, individually and collectively, that the matter has been placed in the hands of Henry M. Morfit, coun sellor at law, Four-and-a-half street, Wash ington. D. C., who will give them all desired information in relation to the interesting pile of money. We hope they may get it. Sleighing, Slidihg, aud Sliding.?The sleet has pretty effectually vetoed pedestrian exercise, inflioting bumps and oontusions with a vengeance upon all undertaking it; but it bas given a wonderful sest to all sorts of mo tion upon runners. The long vistas of ice which sheet our broad avenues are oovered with vehicles, from the gay sleigh, with its comfortable arrangement of furs and mufflers, to the old crockery crate hoisted unon runners and crowded with don't-care " b'noys." On they go, with the chiming of bells, clatter of horses' hoofs, and shouts of merriment! Here they go, and there they go, up and down, and across and around ! Hurrah for this buggy and Bleigh race ! Whew-w w-w ! the sorrel wins! More sleighs, more bells, more pretty girls! Can't stand this ! where's our hat ? Daring Outrage.?A ruffianlv, disreputa ble looking individual, who has been noticed lately lurking about the public buildings, this morning watched his opportunity and availed a respectable elderly gentleman in this man ner : u Why is Odd Fellow's Hall thu week like a bachelor orphan ?" The gentleman naturally alarmed at such au unexpected blow, replied that " he did not know," where upon the miscreant added, ( Because it has no pa-nor-a-ma nor any ladies fair (Ladies' Fair!") and instantly taking to his heels, fled with suoh precipitation as to elude all pursuit. ?? Acknowledgments.?The compositors of the Star office present their acknowledgments to Mr. B. Adams of u Social Hall."
