EV ENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tpb exercises of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, which were to hare taken place at Carusi s Saloon last evening, were postponed until to-night in consequence of the unfavora ble weather. The supper of the D. K E. at Gautier's last night was a magnificent affair, and was done ample just'ce to by all present. Hon. Mr Orr, of South Carolina, presided at one end of the table, aud W N. Starke, of Eta Chapter University, of Virginia, at the other. The first regular toast was the ''President of the Lnited States;" which was responded to by Hon. Mr. Orr in his usual felicitous manner. " The Senate of the United States'' was re sponded to appropriately by the Hon. Mr. Russell, of Arkansas, as was the "House of Representatives'' by Hon. Percy Walker, of Alabama " The Army." brought up Gen. Quitman, of Miss , who responded to the toaet most hap pily, paying, in the course of his remarks, a high compliment to Gen Scott. ? The Navy" was met by Hon. Mr Max well, of Fla., in a speech replete with wit. In responding to " TheaJudiciary," Judge Caskie, of Kichmond, Va., paid a handsome tribute to Chief Justice Taney. The ''Collegiate Institutions of America" answered to by the eloquent and classical i>imitry, of Louisiana. "The Literature of the I'nited States" and the 4D K E. fraternity ' were responded toby J R Thompson, of the Southern Literary Me^enger, and B R. Wellford, jr., of Va., in a manner which gave rich promi.-e of the treat in -tore for those who may listen to the poem and oration to be delivered by them at Ca rusi's to-night. Each Chapter of the fraternity was then toasted, and replied to by their respective delegate:-; alter which 41 The Ladies" were given, and W. T Starke, of Virginia, being railed on, replied to it in the most felicitous manner, as was the 41 Washington Bar" by A. Austin Smith, of this city, and the 44 Uni versity of Virginia" by Lambert Tree of Wash ington. The volunteer toast? following, elicited much eloquence, wit, and humor, which we regret not having space to chronicle. The celebration this year is under the man agement of the University of Virginia Chap ter, which deserves much credit for the hand ?ome manner in which the affair has been con ducted. Reconnoiterinq a Fence ? Two gentle men, who clerk it in the Departments from 9 a m. until 3 p. in , and then drive out to their country place? to ruralize overnight, are ore?, ty good theoretical farmers, but mu?h bewier practical jokers?and 44 thereby hangs a tale." For shortness we will call them Messrs Smith and Brown. Smith had been the last sufferer intLe matter of some ,4 pure Shanghai ?ggs. bought kt a high figure from Brown, and which, when hatched, sent forth a brood of ordinary feather-legged bantams. Smith said nothing to speak of, thought the more, laid Jow and wait* J Brown had been building at considerable expense, an oak post and rail fencc. upon which lie rather prided himself, but which had some how sprung a leak, through which the vag.i oone pigs of the neighborhood made their way "rooting up things," and playing old scratch generally. So one morning, ju^t as be wag starting for town, he called ?? Dily"? the old blaek servant?and said . ' Now. Dilly. I wan1 you toreconnciter that feiwe thoroughly to-day and report progress when I come back," and off be Uiove. It is a peculiarity of Brown's to use rather grandiloquent language, to Dilly's great per plexity, but this time the word reconnoitre 4 bothered him intirely." Pretty soon, Smith came ruling by. on hi* way to the city, and it struck i>illy that here was a chance to get en .lightened. Smith pondered a moment, with a queer grin upon his faee, and then cheer lully told Dilly how to proceed. "Recon noiter," said he, 4?is from the French 'to get lid off. \ our master wants you to pull down that fence, throw it into piles, and burn Duly immensely relieved, but a great deal puzzled at ?? Mas'rs curus notions." went to work on the principle of obeying orders if he broke owners, and being a strong fellow he was soon reconnoitering that fence with a loose ness. When Brown returned he called on iW refc?rt progress." "Well. Maa'r, said Dilly, "I ve pilel it all Up and set fire to most all the piles, but deed. Mas'r, they burns turble slow;" and then seeing the puzzlod look upon Brown s face, he hastened to interpret it with ' Deed, Maa'r. never should have known what reconnoiter was but r Smith told me " Brown was inclined to be very anifry with Duly, until he heard that Smith /eMhun " and teen he thought better of it, but is since very careful in giving orders, to use language adapted to the most ordinary capacity Scpreme Coirt.?Yesterday, J. Young Scaminou, Esq.. of Illinois, was admitted an attorney and counsellor of this Court. No. 19. David Bush vs. Maborn Cooper's administrators. In error to the High Court of Errors and Appeals of the State of Mississip pi. Mr. Justice Curtis delivered the opinion of the Court, affirming the decree of the said Court in this eause, with costs No 24 The United States vs. Catesby Ap Roger Jones. In error to the Circuit Court of the UnitedStates for the Distr'etof Columbia. Mr Justice drier delivered the opiuion of the Court, affirming the judgment of the said Court in this cause. No. 119 Isaac Hartshorn, plaintiff in error, I-*. Horace H Day. This eauso having been prematurely docketed by the defendants in error, it was ordered to be stricken from the docket. No. 33. Robert A. Parker et at., appel lants vs. William Overman The argument of this cau*c was continued by Mr. Lawrence for the appellee, and concluded by Mr. Bryan for the appellant". No 33. Edward C. Richards et at. appel lants, vi. Sylvester Holmes et a/. The argu ment of this cause was commenced by Sir. Bibb for the appellants, and continued by Messrs Fendall and tracy for the appellees. The Court then adjourned. Election ok Okfiprrs.?At the annual meeting of th?? Northern Liberties Fire Com pany. held lait evening, the following gentle men were elected officers for the ensuing year Middleton Birkhead, President, Chas. Gooch, Vice President; John T. llalleck, Secretary. Jobu H Goddard, jr., Treasurer; James Suit, Captain of Engine Division, Oliver Wade, First Assistant; Remegius Birch. Second As sistant; Frank Truxall, Third Assistant. Thos. J Dawson, Captain of Hose Division; James Slatford First Director. Jerome Columbus, Second Director Van S. Johnson, Third Di rector. Criminal Coirt.?Yesterday, after we left the court, Margaret Bruce was acquitted of receiving stolen goods ; Ratcliffe for de fence Charles Hill, (colored.) for an assault, was found gudty ; not yet sentenced ; Dev lin. jr., for defence. David Y. Moore, for an assault, was found guilty ; not yet sentenced ; Devlir jr , for defence To-day. there were no trials; met for Grand Jury. Lxap Year ?We understand that some of the ladies determined to exercise the privil ege of the year, are getting up a ball, to which they intend to invite the gentlemen. " May 1 have the pleasure of the next waits, Mr Locals'" '4 I am sorry. Miss, but I am en gaged for that and the next one. The third, Mii^s, i will be pleased to dance with you." Accident. ?A boy named Nolan, who was skating this morning in the First Ward, lost his equilibrium, and fell directly before a passing carriage By the promptness of the driver the horses were ohecked in season to prevent the wheels from passing over the pros trate lad, who made his escape from beneath the hoofs (lightly bruised, and doubtless cured of any desire to skate in the streets again. Beau Hick man, hearing a gentleman quote the New \ ear's s..rig beginning "King out, wild bells,' modestly remarked that he would prefer to " ring in " r Central Lodqe have their levee tc-uight at Odd Fellows' llill Addresses ate expected jrvm several members ol Congress. The Odd Fellow's Levbe. by the Colum bia Lodge, last night, notwithstanding the very inclement weather, was well attended, there being a large number of ladies present. Captain Wm. W Moore, a Past Grand Sire of the order, delivered an able addreaa, where in he dwelt upon the object* and aims of the fraternity, and the duties of its members The oouimand? to an Odd Fellow were, to relieve the sick, bury the dead, comfort the widow, and educate the orphan, and these 'nandates were obeyed. After the conclusion of the address, each of the orphans of the Lodge were presented with a beautiful book. The refreshments were furnished by Ridenour; and the instrumental music by Marsoletti's band. Messrs Cooley, Jones, Bennet, and Fruit also*f&vored the company with some beautiful qnartettes: and the exercises of the evening passed off in the i pleasantest manner to all concerned. A Local position, this morning, was hard to keep Once, while endeavoring to walk se dately. we slid off at a two-forty gate, then lurched, then saw the toes of our boots on a perpendicular line of vision, then experienced a fundamental concussion, and then saw my riads of twinkling star?. Then, with a woi'ul countenance, we arose, and looked at the spot where we had measured our length. The pavement was injured. Wao wants a Good Collector '?For the last two years Mr George W. Swain has been the colleetor of accounts for the Star office. We have found him in all respects faithful, re liable. industrious, and attentive to his busi ness; and without his knowledge state these facts for the benefit of those who, having ac counts to collcet at this season, may require the aid of just such a man. lie caa be seen every afternoon between two and four p. m , at the Star office A Portrait of Prnfeesor Henry has just been finished by Mr. Wood, whose studio is at the National Hotel. It is an admirable like ness, executed with boldness and effect. Watch Returns.? John, (colored.) charged with being a runaway, sent to jail. Philip Lucas, profanity, paid fine and costs. Alex Wright, J no. Hamilton. Jno. Armstrong, Thos. Casady. and Bridget Carlin. were accommo dated with lodgiogs. Washington's Birth Day is to be cele brated in several cities with unusual demon strations. In Boston, the city government have ordered the bells to be rung, and salutes to be fired. In Ciocinnatti there is to be a great celebration, and special invitations have been sent to President Pierce, Gen. Scott, G. W. P. Curtis, Esq., Hon. L. Cass, Hon. Sam. Houston, Gen. Butler, Gen. Shields, Gen. Pil low. Gen. Quitman, Heads of United States Departments, Governors of States, Mayors oi Western citics, Board of trauo in the Missis sippi Valley. Officers and Society of Cincin nati, the Veterans of the Mississippi Valley, the Veterans of the war of 1812- '13, prominent military companies in the ^veral States, and associated bodies civil and military in this and other State*.

Job Printers are also notified that we are prepared to do every description of presa-work that can be executed on double cylinder and Adams's power-presaes So, also, has tne Star office a book-bindery connected with it, equal in its capacity to turn out book-binding of all descriptions to sn^ other is the District of Columbia. To Mail Contractor*.?We find the fol lowing advice in the New Orleans Courier, but think after all, that the " saccharine fluid " may have been distilled from the papers them selves. Many of our exchanges from the East came to us yesterday saturated with mola?ses, by which their legibility was by no means impro ved We would suggest to parties engaged in the combined 'justness of transporting the mails and the aforesaid saccharine fluid to put treacle and new-papers in separate bags, for they dou t mix well. Burning or St. Mary's College.?On the 27th of December the building of St. Mary's College, a Catholic institution, located about a mile and a half south of Dayton, (Ohio,) was deitroyed by fire, which originated in an ad jacent carpenter s shop The edifit 3 consisted of a main building and two wings, was of brick two stories in height. It answered at onoe the purpose of a sch<iol and a monastery, and in it were accommodated twenty.four pupils and sixteen brethren of the order of St Mary, be side" tea.-her-, assistants, Ac A large portion of the library was saved and most of the furn iture The loss on the building is ten thous and dollars, entirely uninsured. Death op Editor.?Wm M. Overton, Esq , sometime since connected with the Washington Union, but recently one the editors of the Washington Sentinel, died on Tuesday, at the residence of his father-in-law, Col. Kobert M-Candlish, in Williamsburg, Va He had been in declining health for a long time, anl his demise was not unexpected. He was a gentleman of fine talents, varied accomplish ments, and a vigorous writer. Eclipses di ring 1356.?There will be two eclipses of the Sun, and two of the Moon, this year. A total cclipse of the Sun will take place on the oth of April, and an annular eclipse on the 28th of September, both invis ible here. There will be a partial eclipse of the Moon on the 20th of April, which will be visible early in the morning; und a similar eclipse on the 13th of October, also visible in the evening. tjK'There were 10,581 deaths in Philadel phia last year.

A simple friend desires to know whether the abolition of flogging in the navy includes " spanking breezes." iy The large number of vessels now in the harbor of Norfolk, is a subject of remark. Ac cording to the Herald, the city never pre sented a livelier aspect than at present. (y On Saturday last, at Fairfax C. 11., men servants hired at ?90 to 5125?women, iit) to S7Q?boys, $40 to $H0 At the hiring, yesterday, at Catts', West End about the same rates were obtained.

CT Our crop of Indian corn, if we v?*ue it at but one-half the present market price, amounts to more than h1! the gold from Cali fornia ; and our wheat crop, at the most moderate estimate, is worth as much as all the gold iu the country ; while the moderate growth of oits. with all reasonable allowances for exaggeration, more than equals any two years produce of the California mines. i jJT* Letter from Hon.
