*VENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A Hor*? or lticrr<ia Wakted?We are glad to see the disposition manifested by our City Councils to establish a Houm of Refuge for the reformation of juvenile delinquents. Alderman Smith, at the last meeting of the Board, represented tho ardent need of such *n institution in a very forcible liffbt, and though there was aome difference of opinion expressed among members as to the beet mode of supplying the want there seemed to be none a* to the necessity. In noticing cases of juvenile crime heretofore, we hare had oc casion to apeak of their growing frequency, and, Indeed, it wu only yesterday that ten or twelve boys, many of them most respect fully connected, were brought up before Jus tice Hollingshead on eharge of taking arti cles from the Unitarian Fair and of destroy ing property at Odd Fellows' Hall. Not long ago the same number of children, of resoect r able parents, were brought up before Capt. Birch for breaking into a grocery store When the restraining influence of moral and religious parents is found so ineffectual, it cannot be doubted that the character of a , large portion of our youth is such as to excite the most serious concern, especially when we consider what numbers of reckless, ignorant, unprincipled youths there are in our midst who hare had no oontrjl whatever, parental *r otherwise, exercised over them. The in . fluence of this dangerous material upon those L.yet uneontaminated. is of the most delete! rious nature, and self-preservation alone de mmds that the virus should be withdrawn from the juvenile grades of society as speedily as possible. A large proportion of these ju venile offenders could doubtless be reclaimed if they were separated from the temptations to vice ard placed under proper instruction and discipline. The penitentiary where they are thrown into eontaot with hardened and ir roclaimable convicts, is certainly no place for them. All convicts under sixteen years of age should certainly be placed under some guar dianship. where they may receive religions and intellectual training; and many who would otherwise end their days upon the gal lows. or within the walls of the penitentiary, may thus be trained to become useful mem bers of society. So noble and philanthropic an undertaking ought not to want supporters when we are willing to expend so much time ' and money for sinners on the other side of the globe. In New York, the several institutions of this description, such as the " Society for the Reformation of Juvenile Delinquent?," the '-Alms House Institution' of the i?i? na ture. and several other similar organisations, have been operating with the happiest effect. The children are usefully employed in man ual labor as far as possible; shoe-making, wire-weaving and wire-work generally. The children in the female departments are em ployed with the needle or at housework; with the physical labor a wholesome system of in? struction is incorporated. A large number are indentured to farmers Baltimore, the " Monumental city," has raised the proudest and most enduring of her monuments, in the erection, at a e?st of $120,000, of an admira b'y-arranged House of Refuge, with neat and oomfortable rooms for four or five hundred persons, with ample provisions for work shops, school rooms, chapel, cook room, bathing apartments, and an abundant supply of water to every part of tho building So extensive *n institution would n^t be requisite in our city, but tho need of one commensurate with our population is quite as urgent as in any city in the country. We hope the City Coun cils will not suffer the matter to rest until a House of Refuge is established. A First-class Piaso.?It will be seen by reference to our advertising columns, that we have not only a Bourbon, but a first class Piano '-among us," and we hope that all in terested in musical instruments will call in at the Depot cf Mr. Hilbus and examine it. The pianos manufactured by Haines Brothers, (of which this is one,) are said to possess all the excellencies of both the iron and the wooden frame, without the defects of either. Pressing a rioh, powerful tone, without jing f ling, or rattling, when the keys are forcibly struck, and an action and beauty of finish un surpassed. they have the great additional advantage of being remarkably durable, and at n.ding well in tuno in every climate. From among a large number of recommendations, by professional men of eminence, we select tne following: I am happy to say that I have used Haines Fr<>tbers Piar.os. at Musical Conventions, and find them excellent instramenU in all respeo's. Oao. F Root. New York, Jan. 17, 1858. Niw Yoke, December 20, 1856. Messrs Cook A Brother, 343 Broadway. <tents : You ask my opinion of the Piano Fortes manufactured by Messrs Haines Bro thers. of New York I am happy to state that having used thein in several of my Mu sical Conventions, I have been highly pleased with them, and have heard no expression re girding them, from the many musicians in attendance, but that of admiration. For purity and fullness ot tnne. and elas ticity of touch, they deserve the highest praise. Indeed, I am anxious to have one of them to use in the great National Convention which I am to hold at Washington in February next. Yours, very truly, I. B. WooDBfRT. Criminal Court.?Yesterday, after we left the Court, Alex Moore, (colored,) who was indicted for assault with intent to kill, was v found guilty of assault only and sentenced to thirteen months in jail. Vandorah Oterre was found guilty of an assault with intent to kill one Henry B. Robinson, and sentenced to four years in the penitentiary. Joe. Johnson alias Jos. Parrish, who was indicted for as sault with intent to kill John H. Wise, was f^nnd guilty of assault only, and sentenced to cine months in jail. Wm Baker was found guilty of an assault on John H. Wise, and sentenced to one week in jail. Miss Darling, on Friday evening. i? to make her appearance at Odd Fellows' Hall, 'Q Indian costume, and relate Longfellow s beautiful legend : 41 LI? ten to these wild Traditions, To this Song of Hiawatha!" The poem is spoken of as a very curious and highly original production, not yet appreci ated as it will be when better known, and fitly spoken by one who. it is believed, pos sesses talent closely allied to genius, with the aid of scenic effect and appropriate c<>stume, "moot fail to make up a very pleasing enter tainment for persons of cultivated taste. Maujihe Strrrt Swrepiro.?We under stand that r proposition has been submitted tc the Mayor of Washington, looking to the employment of the newly invented street sweeping machines for cleaning the main > thoroughfares of this city The Washington \gents ot the proprietors of the patent under which thev work, ask that f 100 will be ap propriated by the eity government to bring a machine from Philadelphia and operate it here?to show the Councils and others inter ested what it is capable of accomplishing A Grand Rally?At the meeting of the Know Nothing lodge of the First Ward of our city one night last week, called to endorse the course of the Hon Henry Winter Davis, it is said there were thirty-tnree of the brethren present, twenty eight of whom voted for the resolutions in favor of Mr D 's course en the Speakership, which have been since duly fotwarded to his lodge in Baltimore. The re naming five protested against their adoption. Tbr L-jsq Bridge.?We have been re qoestcd by the Commissioner of Publio Build ing; to notify travelers across the long bridge, that two spans thereof are so much damaged by the ice as to demand slow and cautious driving. The damage, however, is not yet so great, in his oninion, as to justify him in stop ping the travel altogether. Br ViaiLAHT!?The citisens of the Seventh Ward are requested to meet at Island Hall this evening, at half-past seven o'clock, to take measures in relation to the recent incen diary acts, and concert some plan for their prevention in future Mr Dempster has been earnestly entreated t' give another coneert, and will again gratify his many admirers. Natio*kL Trbatbb.?It will be aeen by the advertised programme of this establishment tfcat Mr Eddy hu a benefit on Saturday eve ning. when he will appear in Judge Conrad'a tragedy, "Jack Cade," so familiar to the ad mirers of Edwin Forrest. Mr. Jeffarson also appears as D'ggory in the farce of "The Spectre Bridegroom." Mr Richings and hi? daughter, who have been performing at Rich* uiond, will appear here next week. City Dispatch Post?This important de sideratum. the want of which has been felt by citisens, strangers, and the business com munity. we learn, is now about to be supplied. The gentleman undertaking it is one whose business energy and capacity will be a suffi cient guarantee that all matters sent by this mode will be faithfully delivered. We have not yet learned the charges or particulars, ex oept that the arrangement will go into opera tion the latter part of next week. Firbras's Fuseral.?The different fire companies of the city are making active pre parations for this afternoon's parade, on the occasion of the funeral of their late brother, J. Q. Anderson, who met with so sudden a death while in the discharge ef his duty at the late destructive fire. There will doubtless be a large attendance at the funeral. Tbb Coxcbrt on Saturday evening will doubtless be well attended, as great attrac tions are prssented. Watcb Rbtcrhs ? A middle-aged German woman was brought in last night, miserably ill and weak. No information could be got from her as to name or any thing about her, although some Germans wore cabled in to in terpret for her. A rather handsome oloak ana the materials for a couple of shirts were found in her possession, which, it is thought, may not belong to her, and they have been retained at the guard-house for identification. The woman was sent to the work-house for thirty davs. Conan Dorsey, (slave,) was brought up for larceny; dismissed. Tho usual number of lodgers were received. ALEXANDRIA CORRESPONDENCE. Alexandria, March 13,185? Our report of the recent municipal election here, it seems, did not please our dear Know Nothing friends. One of them puts on the garb of his dying master, gets hold of the Organ handle, and turns away at a terrible rate, calling the Star and its reporter a varie ty of names, and at last vents its spite on that harmless bundle, which, failing as it has beer, according to Know Nothing authorities, for j*? years pa9t, has, in sixteen months, out lived, in the hands of a single agent, (being quite as large now as at the commencement of that period,) ten Organ agents. Now the Alexandria reporter, whatever may be his party predilections, endeavors to give a fair statement of every case that falls within the purview of his reports, and is ever ready to disavow unintentional error, by prompt corrections, but the report of the 6th of March, though hastily written, contains no misstatement; and, however unwilling to bandy epithets with " Sam," he is more than reauy to review the article in question, and test it by the facts. We reported, 1st That a majority of the commissioners were Know Nothings , this " Sam does not deny ; mere ly pleading, in mitigation, that the Democrats had one-third of the commissioners. We reported seoond : That the commission ers and officers in charge of the polls were in many cases candidates We give now such as we recollect. First Ward?Conductor John Thompson, candidate for re-election as watch man Among the oommisnoners, G. II Man E'2Q . a candidate for Council. Second V> ard - Conductor Joseph Padgett, candidate for re-election as police officer: Commission ers Henry Mansfield, candidate for assessor' J. T Armstrong, for Council Third Ward Conductor, W. L Penn, candidato for super intendent of police. There arc others, but these are sufficient to demonstrate there was no misstatement there. We reported third: That oitiiens, natu rained within two years, were denied suf frage This n Sam' sustains saying: "The commissioners believed that they must reside two years in the State after they are natural ised before they are qualified." When the Know Nothings of the Commonwealth se lected a candidate for the highest law office in their gift, it is fair to presume that they selected the most c tjpeter t lawyer in their organisation, and yet th?5i; iecont candidate for Attorney General. John jf. Patton, agreed wuh the State Attorney General, our circuit court, and the circuit court of Washington county, that the constitution requires no such additional residence; that the commissioners were united on this subject is not true. We are authorised to say that the Dem<)cratio ?ommNsionnrs did not agree to place tho >/?> turn of H W. Davis above judicial decision.*, and the plain words of the constitution. ?a r?l>0rt*'l fourth : The cithens.long res ident natives, whom misfortune had obliged to accept a pint of soup or a load of wood, were ola?sed as paupers. This was by far the meanest of Know Nothing developments?an other ex ample of that spirit that makes alike the Washington National Monument and the Alexandria munioipal soup house the instru ment to uphold its falling power. In these oases insult was sometimes added to injury and one of the commissioners threatened to leave the polls if such browbeating were per sisted in Didn't " Sam ' see (for wr under stand he was there) thifr example of " the harmony." We reported fifth : That the opposition, ex pecting nothing, made no rally. Whatever may have been the attempts of individuals among the opposition, " no rally was made." The larger portion of the Democrats preferred to give the present government rope enough to hang itself, and opposed all union against it. The meeting at Exchange Block, whioh, if it were in the " cock-loft," was an op^i one, and no man went from it sworn to deny that he had been there. But it failed to unite the opposition, and on the day of electioh, whilst the Kaow Nothings had one ticket, the opposition threw away their votes among four hence we said truthfully, no rally was made by the opposition. We had not the slightest idea that our dear Know Nothing friends would get so angry at the truth ; but if we have given " Sam" an opportunity to show his zeal on behalf of his new masters?alike candidates and commis sioners?and thus increased his chance of keeping his place, we have done a good doed meriting, we are sure, more thanks than he has given us for it. The winter course of lectures before the ioungMen s Christian Association, were ter minated on the evening of Tuesday, by a B Johnson Barbour, of Richmond. The theme selected, "The Rela *?t,reen J.hriatianity lnd Human Know sSff'? manner whioh * rT LnM th? ,lter#ryfame 0f th?

The association under whose auspices these lec tures have been delived, deserve the thanks treats the ?erie* of intellectual treats, with which month after month thev have entertained our people. T*? military spirit of our young cititens excited by the relations with Great Britain' begins to display itself. A new corps of Vol unteers, "The Alexandria Riflemen," has just been organited, Capt W. W. Herbert and is making ample preparations to insure a fine corps of citiien soldiers. Our City Council met on the evening of Tuesday, appointed committees, direoted the city printing to be awarded to the lowest bid der, and an inqniry into the expediency of a public hospital, and transacted some other business of minor interest, Navigation below us. notwithstanding the skim of ice on the morning of Tuesday it tolerably clear. The Baltimore packets arc about to resume their trips, but the Alex andria and Washington ferry route is yet un opened. Am. A violent and somewhat personal con troversy it g)ing on in New York between the Vestry of Trinity Churoh, and the Rector of St George's (Rey.
