EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Police Istellise*' e ?In consequence of a telegraphic dispatch received by Capt Da vit. Chief of Police, yestarday. a P*rty of travellers from the South were arrested as they were about leaving for Baltimore, by Officers Davis, Handy, Allen. Boss, and Mar tin, on charge of having robbed a fellow pas senger of two trunks and a carpet bag at Rich mond The despatch was from the city of Richmond and was sent by the gentleman who claimed to have been robbed, and whose name is Captain McDonald, of the ship uAm bassador,'' now lying at New Orleans The bag*a?fe described by Capt. McDonald in bis dispatch was found upon the parties ar rested . but on the examination before Justice Hollicgshcad tnere appeared no proof of crim inal intention unon the part of those arrested It appeared rather, that they had been acting as his friends in the matter, in attending to bis baggage when he had accidentally misled the train on his way from Richmond after it been checked thnugh The prisoners were accordingly di?mis*el. and the 1 agtrage is now at the office of Justice Hollingshead, awaiting the arrival of Capt. McDonald The affair was managed skillfully and promptly by our police, and though it occa sioned some inconvenience to the innocent parties, it demonstrates the alertness and vigi lance with which a case of real mischief would be tracked out. Mercury s despatch to the Baltimore Sun, in relation to the matter was, of course, incorrect. '?Pilot" '-Padd* "?Baltimore Chal mf.ts Washixoto* ?It will be seen, by the following note. that our Baltitiore friends do not acquiesce in the opinion tuat they were beaten on the occasion of their late visit to Washington ; and Mr Byrne proposes to back up the Baltimore vijw of the case by a thou sand dollar wager. We give the owners of fast nags the benefit of the proposal: Baltimore. Feb. 2. 185? Mr Editor Sir?In the local columns ol the Star of the 1st inst., in your report of the sleighing, you say according to the estimate of the W'ashingtonians, who may have been somewhat partial to home in forming their judgment in regard to the trial of speed on the avenue the day in question I can only lay that I think you could have said, without the slightest risk of being mistaken, that they have been very partial to home, for in regard to my horse Pilot I say that no horse beat him, nor aid I think that any person present was nnder that impression Having gre.it respect for Washingtoniar.s. and being one myself by birth, nothing would afford i7>e more pleasure than to have a match with Paudy for SI.<>00, or any other horse that was on the avenue that day ; and I will agree to drive Pilot from Baltimore one day, and trot the race the next. We thank you. sir, for the compliment you paid our party in your report, and hope to nave an <pportunity to reciprocate the many acts of kindness we received durin? onr short stay in jour beautiful city. By giving this a place in your local columns, ynu will confer a /avwr on yours, respectfully. ? Ww. Brows. The W bather?Oh' the Weather!?
