EVENING star. local, intelligence. Mor* a?-tt thr Important Arrests or WA-iUHSfO* BrROLARS A!*r> IXCRU DIARIES \n hoar after the Star was worked off yester j,r Officer Bos?. suspecting John E Bailey, ? coaiu'ult of the eounty, trom his habits ,,f intimacy with the prisoners, (the circuu. ??ances of whose arrest we published yester VJT 1 arrested him (B ) for participation in the bar?I?ry a* Forrest's shoe store on the night before- Bailey, on being questioned, admitted hi# connection with the act and the gai>g in their many crimes, and implicated young De Biine. whr, working and sleeping in Hare ?et zrtritg shop next door to Forrest's, bad been ^rcployed by the latter to watch in order to jijcover who it was that had been time and agaia plundering his store. It will be recol lected that according to Demaine's story, pub lished in the Star of yesterday, he had con ned himself behind a pile of leather on not being to ^is pistol when, as he said, tedweoveicd the robbers in the honse. A rltnk or two of the partition between Forrest's *nd litre's premises had been removed or fixed so as to be movable, with Forrest's KDowled?e, the better to enable Demaine to witch F. s store Through this aperture Nay ]or escaped into Hare s back shop, where he hadcrcuehed down on being alarmed by the entrance of the officers. He was seized by Forrest, it will be recollected, there, feigning ti> be very drunk and unable to know how he got there. Bailey denied that any of the stolen ?<.od* were at his house, though due search of bis premises brought to light a considerable quantity, among tbem beii.g a portion of the proceeds of the robbery of Forrest's shoe store, of Michael Hoffer s jewelry store, of Hinton's merchant tailor's store, and others, that bare been identified John H. Ray had been Naylor's partner in tht coach blacksmithing business, and was, at the time, working at the business for Naylor. So also was Henry Crogan, who boarded for ^>me two-and-a-balf years with Naylor, but when arrested, was boarding with John H. Ray On searching Henry Crogan in the guard house yesterday morning, an over coat and dress-coat, proceeds of the Hinton robbery, were found on him A burglar's pecaliar match was found in his pocket Jchn li Kay bad on a pair of pantaloons made of cloth stolen when Eckloff's tailor shop was robbed. On searching him, a revolver was found on him ; and, as he was being conveyed to jail, shavings, such, we hear, as were used in t&e preparation to fire Dr Hoffar's dcnlnt office, "(over Forrest's and Hares) dropped fr m fcia pocket They (John H Kay and Henry Crogan) admitted that testimony en< -ugh had. even at that time, been found against tbem, to send tbem to the penitentiary for a term of years, and said that they had con federates who were still at large, but refused to tell who they were, on the principle of 4* honor among thieves " Both made light of their position, and intimated that they did not care for the punishment impending ever tbem. They are all of the gmg sus pected of the patriotic work of destroying the Pope's stone, not long since?Washington Nsylor being credited as one of the chief ac tor* in that exploit. He is now Vice Presi dent of the Know Nothing Council of the Sec ond Ward of this city, and a member of their Grand Council, we regret to hear. At our last municipal election, be was ono of the Know Nothing challengers at the Second Ward polls, and has long assumed, indeed, to be a!m at the head and front of their active organization in the Ward. His prominent connection with " the Order," of course gives great pain to respectable men among us in it. It. however, goes to show its dangerous ten dency in the matter of giving position, through the peculiarities cf the organization, to bad men; and also in generating the association of bad men for the perpetration of crime, as we have often labored to explain. Neither Washington Naylor nor his bail were on hand at 6 p. m yesterday afternoon at ihe guard house. At about a. m. he was seen in a buggy seated by Hammack. bis bail, it is said, heading in the direction of the farm in Montgomery county, Maryland, near the District line, where, it was thought, he would seek a temporary refuge, at least. This buggy story is not true, as we explain below. Hammack returned alone to the stable (Nay lor's; with the horse and buggy about lip ui. yesterday. When the gang who were last convicted of arson were being sought by the officers, they suspected that one of them?Streaks?was at this same farm. At night, officers Boss an.l Barnaclo, went thither to search fcr him. They were refused permission to do so, Officer Barnaclo tells us. because they had no war rant that was operative in the State of Mary land Officer B. tells us further, that while watching to arrest Streaks on that occasion, he heard a lad or young man in the house check Streaks, us the latter was aboct to descend to the ground by a ladder; telling him not to do so, as ?' Barnaclo was at its foot and Bjss at the front door." Some months after that occurrence. Officer Barnaclo arrested Streaks in Alexandria county, Va , on the tow-path of the canal He turned State's evidence on his ass*elates, and through his testimony some of them were conricted and are now serving out their term in the District penitentiary. When he turned State's evidence he admitted to Offi cer Barnaclo th-t ho w?*s in the house at the farm when Mr Boss and himself were de feated in the effort to arrest him there All these facts should be known to this com munity. as they boar on their future safety from ?rwn and burglary. So wo, therefore, uiake them public. If ever a public officer earned the gratitude of a community, it is Officer Boss, on this occasion. His prompt ar re-t of Bailey and young Demuine, and his successful eflorts to get at tne bottom of all the operation? of the gang, having secured the tes timony necessary to the entire exposure of the villains and their prompt punishment. It was previously questionable in our mind whether they could have been held for a greater crime than receivingstolengoods, and waetherHenry Crogan could have been held at all. B-jth the day and night police, however, deserve great credit for their labors yesterday?Chief Davis, Officer* Getting!. Wise, Simonds. Martin, Alleu and Lian iy, as well as all the night police force being very active in securing the goods stolen Mr Kckloff, of the night police, first suggested th? policy of promptly searching the hoase of J hn H Kay on leurning from Hammack that he had last seen Washington Naylor on the Light before in his tHammuck'a) drinking hju;?, ineompany with John H. Kay and Henry Cr gau. Bailey was made a constable for the county aboutnine months ago Washing'on Naylor, when found at John H. Kay s, shortly after being discharged on bail, ?as engaged in secreting stolen goods under the house, which accounts for bis crawling out from under it. when be made off. We are satisfied that Hammack did not carry off W ashicgum Naylor in his buggy yes terday , nut that the person who went ui> with him to the farm was a different man. Wash ington Naylor went up to the farm by a dif ferent road, where it was admitted to the -ffcers?Allen, Getting*, Wise, Simonds, Mar tin. and Watchman Moccabee, who reached there ab ut midnight?that Washington had 1-een there in the course of the day Not being officers of the State of Maryland, they f joli no; search the house, and being c> mpelled to leave, they returned to the city before day ttii morning Washington Naylor is said to b*ve been seen at the farm as late as sunset. The shoes on Bailey, when arrested, were i<itUjfied by Mr Forrest as his property, and in his shirt bosom was found a diamond pin, ?upposed by the police to have been stolen *fcen Mrs. Taggart's house was fired. It is ?n the hands oi Oflk-er Boss for identification. Demaine, when arrested, were panta "?jds, identified as the property of Mr Hin i and shoes, identified as Forrest's prop erty Last night.

John Towers, Mayor. Parodi's Concert ?It was once a matter of serious complaint to a musical critic that a certain artist of whom he was desirous of writing was so uniformly excellent in the per formance of every part that there was liter ally nothing left but an opportunity for such praise as had already been lavished to super fluity. Such is, indeed, the case with Parodi. She needs ao praiie?the extreme attractive t ess of her concerts, the excellent selection of pieccs, which can be seen in another column. Her incredibly extensive musical reportoire, her talented assistants, and her own miracu lous vocal and dramatic powers, are known to the world. It is needless to state that her concert on Tuesday evening, will be ascrowded as it can be. since we have been informed that the demand for places is enthusiastic, and that we shall witness an array of beauty and fashion almost without precedent. But why is this to be the only concert7 Mu.-t it be so ' Can we not be gratified in hearing our great national song, 44 The Star Spangled Banner," in which she is unsurpassed ? Wanted?A Lover.?Written on the fly leaf of a popular novel in the Alexandria (Va .) Library is the following in a delicate hand : 44 My character is a fac simile of , ex cepting the noble traits of her-!; if there is any in mine, lovo may bring it out?but it has never been tried. No one ever loved me. though she had innumerable trials, not so many as I; she was loved before she was seventeen, and I am nineteen. If any one would love me, be it who it may?I will cherish their love. So help me God." Come up to Washington, dear We wouldn't givo two straws for the beaux of Alexandria it' they allow the natural want you express to go unsatisfied. We have lots of young men here who would gladly love you, and thank you too. Come up by the first boat, and take your pick of the eligible your.e men, com mencing, of course, in the Star office.

S. Patent office buildi.igs. They were mostly strangers in Washington, and desirod to see all that was beautiful and curious. Such visiters are paid well by a visit to those splendid halls. Tnere is enough there to attract the student and in ventor, and the time of such men is never misspent there. The Ball of the American Hook and Lad der Company, on Thursday night, was largely attended, and everything was conducted in the very best manner, the committee fully redeoming their promise. 4' Fairy forms, now here, now there, Hover'd like children of the air," and dancing was kept up until the early hours cf the morn admonished the gay throng of the time to separate.

Serenade ?Last evening a band of musi cians were serenading at various parts cf the city . They performed finely, and the ladies for whom the compliment was intended, were uo doubt pleased with it. A bugle solo per formed by one of the band, attracted the at tention of many very able musicians. Centre Market was crowded this morning, a number of dealers from the country around were there, and all supplied with fresh vege tables, and obtaining good priccs for them The butcher, fish, and hay markets all sup plied and crowded with purchasers.
