EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Bovun or Alokrmbn ?The Board m*t at the usual hour; the President (Mr. Clark) in the chair A communication was received from the Major, calling attention to the condition of the streets, alley#, and gutters of the city, and usking for an appropriation to have them cleaned oat; referred to finance committee. The Council araondmert to the bill regu lating the sale of lottery tickets, and which amendment reouireathe Mayor to call the at tention of the Chief of the Police and Captain of the Auxiliary Guard to the violation of the law in relation to lotteries, was taken np, and after some debate, w;u, on motion of Mr. Pepper, indefinitely postponed. A resolution from the fower Board was adopted, allowing Messrs Rogers and Spalding the use of the southern portion of Centre Mar ket space for equestrian purposes. Mr Pepper presented the petition of B. B. French, asking for the draining of east Capi tal street; referred to improvements commit tee. The Chairman presented a petition from John W Stevens; referred to claims commit tM Mr Pearson introduced a bill for grading T> street south, between Eighth and Ninth streets west; passed. Mr. Smith presented a resolution instructing thecommittee on claims to examine the con dition of the canal bridges, at Virginia ave nue and L and M streets, and ascertain if tbey were in a dangerous condition ; passed. On motion of Mr Pepper, the bill for dredg ing and walling the canals, was taken up and passed Mr. Houston, from the finance committee, reported a fell authcriiing the Mayor to an ticipate the revenue of the Corporation to pay for the new fteum dredging machine; passed. Mr. Houston, from the same committee, re ported a bill making an appropriation to pay the salary of Conyi.ia3icner of Health to the end of the fiscal year; parsed. Mr. Pepper, from improvements committee, reported Wk a bill making an appropriation for grading and graveling Fourth street east from Pennsylvania avenue to A street south. Mr Lusoy moved to strike out "A street pou'b,' aiid insert " to East Capitol street." The amendment was adopted, and the bill passed Mr Houston called the attention of the Boaii to a new pump called Policy's Patent pump, and which he desired should bo exam iaed by the Mayor with a view to having it introduced in place of the pumps now in use The patentee offered to place this pump in any well, however deep, at the rate of fifty cents per foot. Mr. Houston proceeded to draw up aresHu ti?n to effect his object, and meantime Mr. Magruder presented tho petition of John 0. Dwyer asking rt mission of a fine, which was referred to claims committee Mr. Houston introduced a resolution re questing the Mayor to have Policy's pump tested, and trfaking sn appropriation of one hundred dollars for that purpose. Mr. Busey opposed the resolution. If the invention was a good one, and the inventor really desires to introduce it, he will tc*t it at his own expense. He was surprised that his colleague, who was generally "so anxious to save the public money, should offer this resolution. A protracted debate sprang up, participated in by Messrs Miller. Pepper. Magruder, Hove, Smith, and others, in which a pretty sevore overhauling of the present pump system of Washington was gone into. Mr. Miller said that in the First Ward the hydrants were indeed ' hydrants," as they were always running. Page's pump had worked well on trial, but from that day to this had never yielded one drop of water. Mr. Magruder moved that 'the matter be referred to a special committee, who shall ex amine this ttnd all other pumps offered to them and report to the Board Mr. Smith expressed his opposition to the whole system of dragging in patents. If the improvement was a valuable one it would make its way in the community, and then it could be adopted by the eity. This practice was opening a door and establishing a prece dent that would be vexatious to the Corpora tion. The question being taken on Mr. Magrudcr's amendment it was rejected. A substitute for Mr. Houston's resolution was proposed by Mr. Busey authorizing the Mayor to examine Polley'a pump and other lifting and forcing pumps, and report tho re sult to the Board with his opinion as to any pump being superior to those now in use Mr Magruder offered an amendment that a "ommittee of one from each Board should act in conjunction with the Mayor. The amendment and substitute were agreed to. The chair appointed Mr. .Houston on the committee on the part of the Beard of Alder men And then the Board adjourned. Thb District is Congress.?The De ficiency bill being up in the Senate yester day, Mr. Hunter moved the insertion of an appropriation for tho repair of the Long I Bridge. He thought it would be an act of Kreat injustice to leave that bridge unre paired when road3 had been made to connect with it. He contended that to leave the bridge there unfit for use would not remedy the evil complained of by the people of Georgetown, while it would of necessity '?ut off all the avenue* of approach to the city from the people of Alexandria and tho adja country He denied that the filling up of the mud fists was occasioned by the build ing of that bridge, and exhibited a rn~.p to show that these flats were causes of cirplaint as long ago as 1790 ; and that so far f oai any injury having been inflicted upon the people of Georgetown by the building of the bridge. r - ad really benefitted tbem, by beirg the means of deepening the main channel and en larging their avcnue3 of trade. If injury haj bef-n done to the navigation, it was by the citiaena themselves in connecting Analostan island with the main land; and he insisted that the evil complained of could not be remedied unless that correction was entirely removed He quoted from reports of dis tinguished engineers to show that the bridge had not causcd the evils so much complained of. but that if any existed it was owing to their own a;t in erecting the causeway Mr Brown considered it high time to stop patching up the old bridge, and that any ap propriation to repair such an old rickety con cern wou' i be worse than useless. It would stand there aaadisgraceto the nation. He spoke of the flata occasioned by it, which at the ebb ing of every tide were exposed to the rays of th? sun, causing a sickly malaria to arise from them He thought if the commerce of a Urge and growing city was obstructed from such a structure that it was time to cease makinff appropriations for it* repair. Mr IbUik avowed his intention to sustain tc.e amendment of Mr Hunter, being satisfied from the renarks of that Senator and the map he had shown that there was nothing to coun tenance the opinion that the flats had been occasioned by the bridge On theotherhand, he could very well understand that connecting Mason's Island with the main land had been the means of throwing the mud on the Mary land shore, and th-reby occasioning the flats. He thought it out of the iuestion^hat the people of Alexandria an 1 the adjacent coun try should be forced to go three or four miles out of their way to reach this city He saw that it might b? considered a very convenient thing for Georgetown to have all the travel of the country made to pas? through it. George town was a component part of this District, and he wna entirely willing to appropriate any necessary improvement for its benefit; and when they came here to ask that the peo ple of Waahington, Alexandria, and adjacent country should be forced out of their direct communication with cach other, he should opDo^e it. Mr. Pratt opposed the amendment at some Georgetown was the place of his childhood and ho could well reco lect the in jury sustained by its commerce owing to the erection of the bridge, and the cons-quent filling up of the channel. He could well re flect when vaiicls of the largest claas came there to load with tobacco; and what was now AniJ .J Lat Tes?el? "flight draught only could approach their shores, lie pointed > the state of the President's mansion, abso lutely rendered uninhabitable from the ma laria ariaing from the flats during a greatef portion of the fall, and asked if such a struc ture was to be retained, to the ruin of the commerce of Georgetown and detrimental to the health of Washington ? Mr Ilunter replied that the city was quite as healthful now, and more so, than it was in preceding years, and that the channel had not been affected by the bridge; that the river was becoming shallower at Georgetown as at other places. In days by gone large ships had been loaded with tobacco at Dumfries, and at Bladensburg, and at other ports. Tbo question was taken on the amendment of Mr. Hunter, and decided in the negative, as was an amendment offered by Mr. Pratt appropriating five thousand dollars for the re Sair of the Nary Yard and Eastern Branch ridges. ?? Natiojal Thkatrk.?As we anticipated, tho appearance of Mr. Forrest, last night, in the part of Richelieu, draw a very large au dience to the Theatre. As the Theatre is likely to be crowded during Mr. Forrest's en gagement, we would suggest to the managers the propriety of having a larger outlet for tLe audience at the end of the first piece. Last night, when probably three-fourths of the audience passed out at the end of Richelieu, they were detained unpleasantly long by the narrow single-file exit, which precludes the possibility of rapid disgorgement. There was much grumbling among the goers out at the delay, and the opinion was generally expressed that it would be a terrible position, so cooped up, in ca-~e of a fire. This, however, was an unnecessary alarm, as we learn that the means of exit aro really very abundant ia case of necessity; but the public will scarce'y realize this fact under present appearances, and the spirited managers of the Theatre will, we have no doubt, apply a fpeedy remedy for the evil. Mr. Forrest sustained the j art of the crafty Cardinal with his usual power; and, with some few exceptions, was very adequately sustained. To-night, Mr. Forrest takes the part of Hamlet. There has been a great deal of dis cussion as to the merit* of Mr. F.'s perform ance of this strictly ihtellectual character, and we apprehend that the public curiosity will lead to another very full house to-night. Crimmal Court ?On Saturday, Richard Maryman was found guilty of malicious mis chief; sentenced to two months in jail. Ne groes Lewis Travers and Guss Travers were found guilty; two months in jail. Samuel Posey, free negro, assault with intent to com mit a rape on Elixa Chase, was found guilty of an assault only ; sentcnccd to five months in jail.

Mr. Editor : Sir?A complimentary card, which appeared in your paper of last week, clearly showing us that we havo gentlemen among us who appreciate music (as we hum* bly think) of a high order, having been kindly and readily met by the lady and gentleiran, Miss Clara Kean and Mr. Camoens, accom panied by Prof. Foertschon the piano I only hope that it will bo cheerfully met by a full hou.^e this evening. There are two or threa pieces I would mention I should like a repe tition of, if agreeable: The romanza from 4'Robert II Diavolo," "Man the life-boat,"' by Henry Ru?scll, and "Then you'll remember me," by Balfe ; Prof, l'oertsch would oblige us with a repetition of his sdo, "An Italian Serenade,*' by Alfred Jaell, and if the mus'12 of "Old Mad Tom"' can be had Mr. Camoens would oblige us by singing it; and it Miss Koan would favor us wiih " I've been roam ing," we should feel still more obliged.
