EVENING STAR. ""local intelligence. Cosoressioral Proceedings or District Interest.?In the Senate, yesterday, a com munication was received from the Commis sioner of Public Buildings, made in com pliance with a resolution of the 5th ult., di recting that officer to ascertain and report to the Senate at what price certain lots belong ing to private individuals could be purchased within certain named limits; and directing bim also, where he may tbink the sum asked is excessive, to note the amount of that ex cess in his report. The Commissioner gives a detailed state ment of all the lots and parts of lots in squares >'os. 575 and 576, and in reservation 12?show ing the number of square feet in each lot, the value per foot, the assessed value, the value of improvements on each, and the estimated va'ue. The Commissioner informs us that a quin quennial assessment is required of every de ecription of property; each assessor, before entering on his duties, to take an oath to be governed by what, according to his best judg ment, shall be the cash value of the property at the time of assessment; that the last assess ment was made two years ago, and that the average increase of the value since that pe riod, be learns from competent judges, has risen about fifty per oent. The estimated value of all the lots in squares 57d and 576 and in reservation 12 is S379 259 ; the price demanded is 5604,382 Twenty seven owners ef property In these squares and reservation fix the above valuation, and sev enteen other owners have signed a paper agreeing to the passage of a law for the con demnation of property under the usual form" This document was referred to the Commit tee on the District of Columbia and ordered to be printed In the House, a communication was re ceived from the First Comptroller of the Treasury, containing the information called for by the resolution of the 17th instant, re questing "the Secretary of the Treasury toin lorm the House what amount of money has been paid from the National Treasury for costs in criminal cases and on warrants to prevent breaches of the peace in the District of Colum bia for the year ending March 30, 1855, and whether, ia his opinion, any legislation is necessary to protect the Treasury against un just claims on account of such costs." [The Comptroller says that inasmuch as the 1'nited States Marshal, whose duty it is to disburse the amount required for legal charges attendant upon the administration of justice in the District of Columbia, renders his ac counts semi-annually for the terms ending reipectively on the 3'Kh of June and the 3lst of December the entire year of 1855 is select ed, as the information cannot be given for the period designated in the resolution.

Middleton A Beall was entered by burglars, and a small amount of money stolen. They effected an entrance by forcing the basement door with a butcher's clcaver, and climbed into the store through a trap door This was .1 bold undertaking. The store is situated on Pennsylvania avenue, immediately opposite the National Hotel, and the robbers selected an hour of the night when crowds of persons are moving about in that vicinity. Thecleaver used to force the door was left in the store, and had not been identified this morning. About 2 o'clock the store of Mr. Stewart, corner of Twelfth and H streets, was entered, but the robbers were frightened off by a m?n who was sleeping in an adjoining room. At this plaee they forced a padlock on the out side and a .'tore lock on the inside of the door. They overhauled the desk and money drawer, but obtained nothing for their pains National Theatre.?Mr. Wallack will ap pear to-night for the third and last time in his new historical drama of " The Iron Mask."

We would again Iask for the ladies tho patronage never hereto fore refused them Trial ?Yesterday, John Hodgkin was triod before Justice Smith on a charge of assault and battery on L W Butte. It was charged that Mr liodgkin struck Mr Butts on the head with a weapon known as a " billy." The de fence showed that Butts had drawn his hand over Hodgkin:s face several times, and had been told by Hodgkin if he repeated the act be wculd " knock him in the head." Justice Smith dismissed the case on tho ground thac Butts had committed the first assault. False Alarms.?Two alarms of fire were given last night, both false, and given proba bly to excite a collision between fire compa nies. Two attempts were made to get up riots, one in the First Ward the other in the Second The promptness of the guards and police officers prevented any serious conse quences. Watchman Mockabce arrested a man who appeared to be a little too anxious for a row, and in the scuffle lost his short club, the watchman's weapon. The prisoner got away and the crowd dispersed. Assault a?d Batter v.?Yesterday, a little afair occurred near the National Hotel which called fur the interference of an officer.
