EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Niv Gas Csmpaxt.?We hare been shown the document*, Subscription paper, petition, Ac., for the getting up of a new Gas Com paoy to be callcd the " Mutual Gas Light Company of the cities of Washington and Georgetown," shares twenty-fire dollars each and not aubjeot to assessment beyond aaid p i:e It is also made a condition of the subscrip tion that the Company shall be based upon the mutual saving principle to the stockhold ers thereof, in both price and quality of gai manufactured, and that said price shall not be to private consumers over S3 per 1.000 cu bic feet, and to the use of the city not over S2 50 per 1 000 cubic feet. It also being an other provision of said charter that adiscount shall be made to each stockholder upon his bill semi-annually for gas consumed, of two und a half per cent upon the amount of stock so held by him, equalling five per cent. j>er annum dividend, in addition to the largest discount made to cash consumers who are not stockholders, and in addition to such divi dends as shall be made from tho earnings of thecompany The stockholders likewise agree to use the gas of the company on thoir own premises for at least three years after said ? mpany is put in operation. The petition addressed to Congress repre sents ''That there is a general dissatisfac tion and well-founded causo of complaint pervading this community in respect to the poer quality of gas manufactured and dis tributed to the public lamps and to pri vate consumers by the existing Gas Light Company, of this city?as also in respect to the large price exacted by said company for the gas supplied by them?as also in respect to the negligent and unsatisfactory manage ment of tbe affairs of said company in its re lation to public and private consumers. The undersigned, for these good and substantial reasons, respectfully pray Congress to grant a charter for a r.ow company to build gas works and extend their pipes through the cities of Washington and Georgetown, etc , etc. The movement seems to be undertaken in a business-like way, as if it meant something ; and we suppose the old gas company will feel it their interest to make an exnibit of their position, together with explanations of the grievances complained of, to show cause why the petition should not be granted. Fourth Ward Charities ?Tho Visiting Committee appointed by citiiens of this ward report that they have visited three hundred families and given relief to two hundred and twenty-one. They gave one hundred and seventy-two orders for wood, one-third of a cord each ; and one hundred and seventy-four orders for groceries, about two dollars each, making in all $395.11 expended in wood and $136.10 expended in groceries Tbe amount collected wm ?758 45 : there is, therefore, a remainder of S27 24 The committee also acknowledge from Mr. Washington Young a cord of wood, from Messrs. Pepper and Berry eighteen pairs of shoes for children, and from Mr. Silas Hill the gas on the occasion of Mr. Poores lecture in aid of the fund Of the two hundred and twenty one fami lies relieved, about thirty or forty may be considered regular residents of the city, and a vast majority are strangers, who were enticed or invited hither by the demand for labor upon the public works, and thrown out of employment in poverty at the approach of winter. In conclusion the committee repel the charge that the citisens of Washington are unable or unwilling, to take care of their own poor.

Adjourned until Tuesday, tbe first day of April IsrAfTiciDK ?The body of a new-born white female child was found day before yes terday ia the lot of Messrs Kiggs X Co.'s banking house An inquest was held at the ofiee "f Paul Stevens, Esq , corner of Fif teenth and F streets, by Coroner Woodward, and from the evidence before the jury there can be no doubt that tho child was born alive and died fiuiu exposure or foul means Th? child was wrapped in a fine white fianntl woman s under jacket We are glad to learn that energetic search is being made for the perpetrators of the inhuman deed. Cases of infanticide are multiplying with terrible rap idity, and are not likely to be diminished until justice is visited upon some of the trans gressors. * First Rorx Fish of the Seas^-v via the P j what as .?ThegaRant oldPowhatan breast ed her way triumphantly through the ioe . dowa the river and returned to her moorings aboat half-past six o'cleck last evening.

The ice on the river is fast decaying, and sanguine hopes arc entertained of a speedy renewal of navigation. Xhe steamer Powha tan ploughed her way to Aquia Creek yes terday, returning in the afternoon, and leav ing an open channel in her wake. The Orange freight train ran into a wagon on Union street and completely demolished it; fortunately, however, neither horses nor driver wero injured. The new Council bill, raising the salaries of the Mayor, Auditor, Superintendent of Po lice. Ac., is far from giving general satisfac tion. Tho largely increased expenditures of the year past are said to be too onerous upon an already burdened community, and calls for retrenchment and reform are loud and earnest. A run off on the Central Railroad delayed the Orange cars on Tuesdav night, and on Wednesday an accident to the engine of the Orange train caused another detention. The Young Men's Christian Association of our city are making preparations to give our citisens another intellectual feast in a lecture from John B. Gough. A number of our cititens, opposed to the present oath-bound oligarchy that governs our city, have called a meeting at the Ex change Block, to-morrow evening, for the pur pose of uniting upon a citizens' ticket for the ensuing municipal election. The Know Noth ing majority at the last city election was nearly six hundred, but it promises to fall slightly below that next Tuesaay. Ami. Parisian Scandal.?We find the following bit of gossip in a letter from Paris, about Miss Smead, tko celebrated Irish beauty, whose portrait was painted by Healey and exposed at the great Exhibition: Two years ago, when Miss Smead first came to Paris, the Emperor paid her marked at tention. The consequence was, that when ever afterwards Miss S.'s name was seen on Lord Cowley's list for an invitation to a ball at tho Tuileries, the Empress Eugenie was eareful to have the name stricken off. Miss S. received no invitation, and soon discovering tho nature of the difficulty she conceived a violent hatred for the Empress, and deter mined to have her revenge. A few nights ago the Emperor and Empress were present at a sotrc* at Lord Cowley a. Miss smead was also there The Empress parsed through a room where Miss S. and other ladies wero seated, and all rose as ller Mnjesty passed but Miss Smead. The Em ?ress noticed the act, and felt the insult iler [ajesty has become notoriously irritable with in the last few months, and every care is taken to avoid violent emotions. The good of tho country, of posterity, of the world at large, but especially of the Bonaparte dynasty, de Bends upon it. An officer of tho household of [er Majesty approached Miss Smead and re monstrated with her for her conduct. Miss S. replied that it was not the habit in England to rise thus for the Queen, and certainly she would not do It for the Empress of France. What passed between the Emperor and Em | press in another room, may be imagined, for soon Napoleon entered the room where Miss Smead was, and seeing her standing on the floor in conversation with a gentleman, he ap proached them, and bewing coldly to the lady, stepped between them, turned his back to Miss S , and engaged the gentleman in con versation for some minutes. It must have been a great saorifice for as polite a man as Louis Napoleon, and as great an admirer of beauty, but the interests of the dynasty mount above the caprices of the in dividual.
