EVENING ST Alt. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Sevp*th Vaid Ball k<?r the Benefit <?r the Plh>r ?We would call the particular at tention of our citlseus to this hall which comes off at Island Hall on Tuesday evening, Feb ruary ^th The managers have done every thirg iu their power to make it a successful affair, and tho?n? who attend will haw the double satisfaction of a line evening's enjoy ment. ami of having contributed something towards mitigating the sufferings of the needy. The managers by their generous individual contribution- of five dollars cach, have demon strated with what earnestness they have entered upon their work, and they should be met by a like spirit upon the part of the citi te?? at lance- it is to be hoped that allclose fisted mortals who generally interpose "con scientious scruples" when asked to contribute to charity balls, will kindly forego their scru idos on this occasion, in consideration of the nenevolent object of this ball and of the urgent need of just such relief as this ball ia designed to afford. We are requested to state that the committee, desiring to save all possible eipsrsc, have de cided not to issue Indica' invitations, but a general invitation to the Indies is cxteuded. Hav* we ah OnnEit or Nobility i* our Pi blic Schools ??This question is asked in eonseouen^e of the following facts : A son of one oi the Trustee? of Public Schools, attend* ing the district school on the Island, having violated some of the rules of discipline, was assigned a trifling ta-k this week, as a pun ishment- The youngster, instead of perform ing the exercise at recess, as required by the teacher, ran home to his parent, who endorsed his disobedience The teacher, seeing tho authority given him by the General Board set at defiance by h single Trustee, suspended the topil. TheTrUftee has applied to have his 'jj re-instated, and has called a meeting of the sub board of the school district for that purpose, and also to prefer charges of par tiality. etc., against the teacher. It is expected that if the sub-board decide against the teacher he will appeal to the Gen eral Board to sustain his decision Th? investigation is assigned for next M"n day afternoon, at four o'clock, before Messrs. Yorke AtLee. Theodore Wheeler, and Peter >1 Pearson, sub-board of the Fourth school district.

The thaw of yesterday cime, damping alike streets and prospects of sleighing, but the ice still keeps its blockade on the rirer, and it will require several day-; of warm weather to start it from its present position. The Know Nothings, in council assembled, have adopted as the new " basis principles'' ofthe American party in Alexandria, the Phil adelphia platform, with the Lynchburg hole in it. Dr. Bayne, of Prince George's, the great truit rai.'er of this vicinity, announces in a letter to one of our city papers, that Prof. Page is incorrect in his opinion that the peach blos soms have been seriously injured by the rocent freeiing weather. Dr. B. bases his denial on an examinationof the extensive peach orchards opposite our city The Alexandria. Loudon and Hampshire railroad are miking extensive preparations for a renewal of the work on the lino of their road. The chief engineer, C. P. Manning. Esq , advertises for the cross-tios necessary for the first fifteen miles The alarm of fire, last night, proceeded from the ringing of the bell of the Friendship Fire Company. It was false. The Mount Vernon Guards, with the intent of placing their corps upon a firm basis, have re-organized upon a new plan, admitting, upon the payment of a small sum annually, honorary members, who assist in the control of the com pany without being subject to the active du ties of volunteers. This corps ha? long aus tained the military ardor of Alexandria, and well deserves the cordial support of our eiti ten*. Ami. PERSONAL .... Hon. Joseph L. White, counsel for the Nicaragua Transit Company, in its r?cent difficulties with the General Goverment, is in this city. .... Gen John C. Crump, for many years a Senator in the Virginia Legislature, died at his residence in Nansemond county, on the 2ftth of January ....Mrs Mulloncyheld her annual levee on Monday evening last The tables groaned under the following delicacies Two smoked herrings, and a cent's worth of pipes. The company was received by Mr O'Donncll, who varied the amusements of tho evening by a l>rush wiih Mr Floyd, in the back yard. ....l>r Loring, of Salem, delivered an ni tres:?. on the 8th inst , before 11.a Columbian | Society of Marblebead. and it ha' '>ccn pub ' lisbed. Its title is " Constitutional Freedom, the Genius of our Government." 11 is writ ten in a clear and flowitg eiylo. an i 1 a truly eloquent tribute alike to tho memory of tho immortal patriot, the hero of New Orle.in?. and to the grand constitutional principles which he defended on civil anl military fields. .... Lucy Wolcott. who merely carried out the free love doctrines and chose that the father of her child shouldn't be her husband, has been sent to tho Connecticut State prison for two years, and takes with her her little boy, who is about a month old. Lucy's hu."? band, rather an elderly man, consented to her living with her younger friend, but the law is sterner than he, and Lucy is a convict It must be remarked, too, that Lucy, when she left her husband, had the modesty to go to another State to practice her wrongdoing, but was pursued and brought back.
