evening star. local intelligence. Largb Ca?ti:*??Thursday afternoon, the heavy casting intended for the water gate? of the Washington Aqueduct, was made at El lis's founder/, on Ohio avenue, between 13th and Hth streets. The casting is twenty-two I feet in length, and weighs about nine thous and pounds The metal was melted and Kurei in in about one hour and three fourths. lis is believed to be the largest casting ever made in this District, except in the N avyY ard. A few days since a very handsome portable Saw and Grist Mill, with an engine of twenty horse power, was completed by the Bllis Brothers, and shipped for the owner, who re fides in Georgia It is of curious construe tion, and can be taken apart, refitted, and set to work in one hour We understand that this enterprising firm has, in additien to other work, turned out no less than twelve steam engines of different liies the last year, one of which, now nearly ready, is to stand in the large grist-mill of Messrs. Duncanson and Coltman on Ohio av enue near Twelfth street; it is of eighty-horse power, and will compare favorably with any engine of the kind in the country. The sue cess of those gentlemen gives satisfaction to all good oitiieos of Washington, and affords employment for a very large number of flrst clasa mechanics Persons wanting castings from the site of a needle upward, and machine work of any description, can be accommo dated by the Ellis's at the shortest notice.

Somrthtyig Ntw.?Curiosity prompted us to visit the establishment of Messrs Maxwell A Bro., J2S Pennsylvania avenue, and we were agreeably surprised at the extensive variety of their stock of spring and summer Mantil las, of New York and Parisian designs, their secord story being entirely devoted to that branch of their trade, and having the exclu sive agency for this city, of an extensive New York importer and manufacturer of those beautiful garments, are thus enabled to keep up a eonstant supply of all the rare novelties in that line throughout the season Their Srand opening is advertised to take place on [onday next, April 7th, and we bespeak for them a rush of customers, as their patrons can rely upon finding every class of Mantillas at prices ranging from 53 to 530 each. See their advertisement for a list of their new styles On their first floor they exhibit also their usual variety of embroideries, ribbons, lace g >ods, ladies dresa trimmings, Ac., Ac. Call and see them Bcbglaby ?This miming between one o'clock and day light the rooms of the Com missioner of Indian Affairs, on E street, were entered from one of the parlor windows on the street. The burglar paased through the par lor to the sleeping apartment, where the fath er of the red man was reposing, and bore off the entire suit of clothes which the Commis sioner had thrown off on retiring?and in ad dition, an overcoat and an extra vest which fell in the way of the robber. A single $5 gold piece was in the vest pocket, bat a wal let containing some very valuable papers, to the Commissioner, but of no use to any other person, wds in the pantaloons pocket, and is therefore in the possession of the burglar. The Commissioner expresses the opinion that this wallet and aome few private letters which were in his coat pocket, being of no use to the burglar, will probably be returned to him. Jitvbnile Gangs.?What can be done with the little fellow* composing the gangs of 41 Terriers." "Bricks," "Mije," Ac 7 It aj pears that their parents oannot or will not restrain them The officers dislike to arrest them, and if arretted it is very painful to the magistrates to send them to prison, where they mix with skillful thieves and old offenders. Cannot something be done to save those little boys, and prevent the increase of crime. Dur ing the pact year little complaint has been heard of those feliows; but they are banding again, and, of course, houses kave been stoned, children who will not associate with them beaten, and hen roosts, money drawers, and market wagons robbed. It is now time to be gin with them. But where must they go7 The company of old thieves will never reform them, and there is no prison where they can be kept to themselves, and taught to be useful.

Market Thieves ?This morning two boys named Andrew alias John Jones, and William Jeanes, were arrested for being concerned in stealing from Mrs Ann Miller, a pocket book containing a seven dollar note, a five dollar gold piece, and several one dollar pieces, and a quantity of small change not recollected ? Another party had not been arrested. The lady tried, but could find no officer to bear her complaints until the party had separated.? Jeans and Jones were taken by officer F. King, and sent to jail by Captain Birch.? These boys were evidently " old hands," and were itinerating. A Successful "Raisb "?A stationary en gine of some two or three tons weight, was elevated yesterday to its position on the top of the Capitol in about an hour's time, without accident, under the superintendence of Mr Robert Sleight. A large number of spectators watched its progress through the air to its diszy landing place. The engine is designed to lower the stone and materials of the old dome, and to raise the castings Ac., for the new one. The Ball of the American Hook and Lad der Company on Thursday evening next, should not be forgotten by terpsichoreans, or th? lovers of the fair sex, as an evening of un alloyed pleasure will be enjoyed by all present. With the " American*' boys will '? The bright and youthful daneirs meet, With laughing lips and wlng'd feet." Breaches op the Peace.?Yesterday, sev eral very respectable ladies and their bus bands were held to security for peace, by the Justices of the Peace. Threats and loud talks caused them to fear each other, and to prevent a general row this course was pur frued. The day previous several femtlcs were held to security by Justice Offutt. The arrests of all were made mostly by officers Stoddard and Parham. Centre Market ?This morning there was quite a crowd of purchasers, and a supply of provisions about sufficient for them. The gangways were often blocked up by the crowds. It was suggested that the inconveni ence caused by these crowds might be in part prevented if ladies would hold their meetings just outside the market line on sale days, or leave their baskets in the scale house till their conversations were ended. Qcite a crowd was collectcd yesterday in front of the Naval Monument in the Capitol E rounds, gating at some gutta pereha mail ags, which were floating in the water, the design of the inventor being to demonstrate their capability of protecting mails from wet A placard affixed to the railing explained them to be " Allen's mail bags, full of papers.'' Kidwell's Ice ?We learn that the north em dealers in ice, owing to the unusual mild ness of the past winter, design increasing the rates for ice this summer, in view of its anti cipated scarcity. Those who expect to want the article, had therefore better contract with Mr Kidwell fer their summer supplies, before prices go up. Sec advertisement. NlisA5Ces ?Several gentlemen have asked us to call the attention of the proper authori ties to certain lots that might be prevented from becoming nuisances if attended to in time* We'presume the authorities know all about those lots as they have been complained of before. Highway Robbery ?A gentleman was knocked down a few nights since on the Cap itol llill, aLd a gold watch valued at $90 was stolen from him His cries for help was heard by the guards, who ran to bis relief, but the villains, four in number, hearing them ap proach. decamped auddenly, taking with them the watch. Identified.?This morning, two axes, con stituting a portion of the goods stolen by Bar ton and Moody, who were convicted at the late term of the Criminal Court, and sentenc ed to the Penitentiary, were ilentified by Mrs. Duvall as her property. Grace Church Fair ? To-nigLt is the la?t night of this interesting festiva', and will doubtless be fully attended, as everybody must wish to purchase some memento to recall the delightful hours spent here during the continuance of the fair. Wood and Coal ?During the past week the merchants on the canal have been receiv ing wood and coal ,to replenish their stock. If the water continues at its present depth a week or two longer, the supply will be suffioi ent for present use Our Georgetown readers will find matter of interest in the advertisement of Mr. Hiram Wri^ht. A ride behind a fast horse, in a good carriage, is one of the luxuries of existence, and we should say that Mr. Wright is just the man to enable one to attain such a desirable good thing. Fire ?The alarm last night was caused by a brilliant light in the direction of Rockville. It may have been caused by burning wooda, and has originated several alarms. The fire men were out, but returned to their engine houses after a long run in the direction of the light. The City Dispatch, we hear, ia working to a charm, enabling correspondents to send Tet ters and obtain answers with almost telegraph ic oelerity. Such an enterprise has been very much needed here, and we are glad to fee it brought into successful operation. Grand Ball ok the Terpsichore Club.?
