EVENING STAR. "local intelligence. * National Theatre.?We think if our oiki xen* WPre really aware of the fine histrionic Ueat aff >rded at the National during the en gagement of Mr. Wallack, they would not permit the bad weather to prevent their ughtly attendance. The unpleasant weather last night kept many of our theatre-goers ???y. but those present expressed the great est delight, not only at the remarkably fine delineation of the character of Leon by Mr. Wallack, hut at the general excellence of the performance of ?' The Iron Mask." by the en tire company. This play may with truth be called " intensely interesting," though not of the clap trap order usually so designated. To-night will be presented Colley Cibher's adaptation of Shak?peare's Richard Third, and the opportunity afforded of seeing this gTeat play fr<>m the uomutilated text ought to secure a full house. The French dancers will appear, and Mr J. Jefferson will perform his *uie-splitting part of Jack Cabbage. A Scggestios.?We presume that to-night, and every night this week, there will be any i number of good sort of people with more or le?s loose silver burning in their pockets, who will be moving listlessly about our streets seeking for amusement and excitement, and who alter throwing away their surplus dimes on objects worse than useless, will return to their homes, not hilf satisfied with the way they hare spent time and money. To such we would suggest the capital conscience satis * fying plan of visiting the Fair now held by the ladies of the Sixth street (Inland) Presbyterian Church ; there let them purchase a few of the beautiful articles offered for sale, and having spent a delightful evening they can march home, proudly perpendicular, and retire to their virtuous pillows, conscious of having done a g*od deed. Selah ! I.ipias Delegations.?Eight chiefs of the Ottawa and Pottawatomie Indians have ar rived in this city, accompanied by the Ksv. J J. Jones, their pastor, and and Mr. J. W. Barrow, interpreter. The following list of their names we obtain from the register of Wren's-Hotel, C street, where they are stop ping: Ottawa delegation : Kom-Chaw, Sbaw-Pun dar, Pah tee; Pottawattomies : White-Skin, Maw-bau-so, Mo ti (alias) Bottle, Sc-ko-uk, Me-shuck-ke-yan. They are noble representatives of the sons of the forest, and have been delegated by their tribes in Kansas Territory to transact business with the Government 1'o-day they are vis iting various places of interest in the city. The Couisg Mat Ball of Professor Mun d?r is creating a general stir of expectation and preparation amongst the little folks, and indeed among " the children of a largar frowth," fur those who have had any taste eretofore of that delightful affair, a May ball, as got up by Prof M ,can hardly be ex t pected to remain passive under the irresist ible attractions held out by the May ball for ]Si6. The remarkably brilliant May ball given by Prof Munder at the National Theatre last year, is still fresh in the recollection of all who were present, and affords a fair guar antee of the ability of this gentleman to carry out the extensive and beautiful programme promised for the coming ball. ColstebfeitCois ?For several weeks past, Officer Hi rrover has been engaged in trying to discover the persons engageu in circulating the counterfeit gold coin which has been pa.-?ci upon various merchants und others in thu' ity. The counterfeit coin is calculated to deceive any one We have ?etn men, who are constantly engaged in handling money, aililn^ly accept it when offered, by way of a test by the otficcr. It purp'-rt- to be of tb?s coinage of 1843?is in excellent imitation of the genuine, and it u ?aid that ihcie is a l'.rge amount circu lating in the District. Escape of a Pbi-o\?b?Yesterday Thog Ferguson, a colored tn:in was arrested by Offi cer W D Bell on a charge of stealing bacon. After a hearing before Justice Hollingshcad Ferguson was committed for trial at the Crimi nal Court. On the way to jail Ferguson leap ed from the buzgy in wnich he was riding with the officer, andhis leg caught in the wheel. He was dragged -"me distar.ee in that fix, but the officer not wishing to break his leg stopped I the horse, and the prisoner cscaped CiitrviT Coikt.?The case now uiider con sideration by this court is a snit against the United States Marshal of this District, and brought by Dyne, Biddle, Kays McKenney, and Hazard, men who were tried by court martial for an tffcace upon the high seas, and c dfined in the penitentiary in this city. They were subsequently pardoned by the Preoi dent, and they now sue for damages, contend ing that their imprisonment was illegal. The court had not decided the case this morning. Delegates ?The following gentlemen were . selected at a meeting of the voters of the Fourth Ward, held on the evening of the 21st mst . as delegates to the Anti-Know Nothing Mayoralty Convention: Dr. William Jones, Hugh B Sweeney, Win H Thomas. Michael W. Ciuskey, Elij?h Elmonston. At the same meeting a committee of ten was appointed to nominate, to an adjourned meeting, buitable candidates to represent the Ward in the Boards of Aldermen and Common Council. Biggbr Loaves Waxted.?Our bakers are respectfully reminded that tlour is now worth only about half the price it commanded a few months ago, and it would immensely delight our bread consumers to see the size of loaves keep ?(>me sort of proportion to the lessening price What Washington baker will imraoi talite himself, earn the gratitude of our citi aens. and make his everlasting fortune by es tablishing himself on the big loaf platform ? Who speaks first? Tux Potomac Soap Stose Compart is about commencing operations. The object of the Company is to work extensive quarries of Soap Stone or Steatite, which are situated immedi ately upon the Potomac river, 4i miles west of 'ie..rgetown, in Fairfax county, Virginia, and one half mile above the dam and feeder of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The speci mens of stone exhibited from the quarry are said to be very superior. The Yagers?This fine company of our German citizens, commanded by Captain brhwarzman. is making extensive prepara ti n? for a grand pic nic and target firing in May next at Beckert's, on the Seventh street road near the Park. This company is noted for the success of their undertakings, and we freiiet, if their intention is to make this a gr ?ndjaffair, they will succeed, labor and ex pense being no obstacles in their way. SrpREMB Court.?Yesterday?No. 93. Sol omon S M isters .t Son, plaintiffs in error, is. Frederick L. Barreda A Brother. The argu ment in this cause was commenced by Hon. K Johnson for the plaintiffs in error, and c ntinued by Messrs. Carlisle and Bradley for tee defendants in error. Adjourned. Ar*y A Sbui* are preparing, it will be seen b; tne advertisement in another column, to rpen the summer campaign with spirit. Their literal water, porter, ale, champagne cider, me?d. A j., arc articles too well and favorably known to need any special recommendation. The announcement that they are prepared to sti llj orders is sufficient.

After long stadj to find a reason for this Bidden inoreaae. ?ome of the officers have decided tbat in the hurrj of business some merchant has seut a barrel of good whiskj to Fiab Town, and the fighting whisky has fallen to toe jpp.re of these unfortunate parties. The remarkable quietude of the wharves seems to favor this impression. Orphans' Fair.?As to-night will be the last Right of this enterprise for a most praise worthy object, it is confidently anticipated that it will be largely attended and well pat roni led?even more so than it has been yet. fto one, go all' It must positively close to night, as the Saloon is required for other pur poses. ?
