EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. * TbbOtbra?"Ci'idbkblla."?The Pyne A Harrison Opera Company, after a week s ab sence, reappeared at the National last even ing to a crowded aad fashionable audience Mis* Louisa Pyne was m charming and bril liant as ever ; although she bad traveled from Richmond during the daj, her voice had lost cone of its ail very ?weetnesa, and she warbled through the rolt of Kaiarina with all the rue and grace of ber own native " Sky Lark." Mr Harrison waa also in excellent tune, and gave the air of "Ob, whisper!" charmingly. This evening, the far-famed fairy opera of " Cinderella" will be given with new and splendid scenery, dreaaes, tricks, and transfor mations. Id addition to the talent of the Pyne A Harrison Opera Troupe, Mr Ford has se lected from his Baltimore and Richmond com pany the most available and talented portion of lady and gentlemen artists to give full ef feet to the successful production of this favor ite opera, amongst whom are our old friends, Mr- J- Jefferson, Miss E. Morant, Madames Chapman. Germon, and other ladies and gen tlemen necessary to the perfect ensemble of the opera. In spite of the unfavorable weather, the b?x office was crowded this morning with ap plicants for seats, and we hare no doubt but the National will be crowded this evening to its utmost capacity. As HrvBLB Lodger ?On Monday night a respectable looking man, an Italian, was di rected to the guard hou3e for lodging. He was on hia way to aome place where be could be employed and remunerated for his services. When no one was thinking of himfNind the attention of those present was attracted in a different direction* he knelt beside the bench In the prisoner's dock, and remained, appa rently, in prayer a few momenta; then arose, stretched himself upon the bench, and was soon quietly slumbering upon his hard couch. How different his condition from those who were locked in the cells below. Angry with themselves and all the world, "their mouths filled with cursing," calling upon their crea tor to conjign them to eternal flames, they raved through the eight. That poor man, despite his poverty, could be happy and com mune with his God ; ask his protection, and sleep quietly till the day dawned. Railroad Discrimination against Wash ington?A writer in a morning paper calls attention to the arrangement of trains on the Washington branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, as discriminating unjustly against this city Passengers from the way stations cannot reach this city before lli o'clock, a. m., and must leave at 3 o'clock, p m , unless they would pass the night here, while from the same stations they can reach Baltimore at 8 o'clock or 10 J o'clock a m , and return at 9i a. m. or 3 p. m The Rail roal Company should ccrtainly afford, if pos sible, as much accommodation to passengers visiting Washington as to those visiting Balti more. There is a growing population along this end of the road, whoee custom belongs properly to this city. Thb Leap Year Partv at Harmont Hall. With the triumphant success of the ladies for the second time in the getting up and man agement of a ball we suppose the leap year movement may be considered fairly inaugur ated. The party at Harmony Hall last night was a fine affair undoubtedly, and establishes beyond all cavil the fact of the capability of the ladies to carry out such an undertaking as it should be done. We learn that the ladies have now in band the project of a grand leap year pic-nic at Arlington. We guarantee that it will be a model pic-nic ; in fact, the model of models? a model by which hereafter all modelers of model pic-nics shall model their models. Hur rah for leap year, and the ladies ? Dknj ?Those little shanties, kept by white men. where ignorant colored persons are per mitted to assemble, and gamole and drink, an 1 are robbed of their littio earnings, are not entirely broken up. A number yet re main to be operated upon by the police, who, in connection with the auxiliary guard, have done much to les*en the number. It is a pity that the keepers of there places are not always caught at the s.-iir.e time with the gangs of col ored persons who are taken from their houses The penalty tor permitting EO, ABC, LSD, faro, rolly-poly. shuffle-board, equality table, or other device, to be set up. kept, or maintained in his bou?4 out house, Ac , is fifty dollars for every day so kept up and maintained. f NriSASCBS.?The B? ard of Health has is sued its circular, giving information relative to the disposal of slops. Ac. This has been widely circulated, and we presume that few housekeepers are unacquainted with the law. For the benefit of some persons who are not, we mention that piling fish offal in the streets or gutters, or casting refuse iiquid* from dye houses or other places, in the streets or gut ters. is a i?enal offence under the Corporation laws. Several acts of this sort have been mentioned to us. and this information is given in the hope that it will prevent their repeti tion. Thb Botanic Garden.?Our readers cannot pass a more agreeable hour than by a visit to the Government Botanic Garden. The worthy superintendent, Mr. Smith, takes pleasure in explaining to each visiter the history of the plants under hia supervision. That most rare and beautiful flower, on eidiumyapilio (but terfly flower) is now in full bloom, and will so continue for about six days longer, and we have no doubt that many of our lady readers will avail themselves of the opportunity to view it within that time, it befng the only specimen in the United States. MrsiiBK s Grand Mat Ball.?The unpro pitious weather to-day has not had the effect of damping the enthusiasm of the little folks and others interested in the grand ball to night , and it is p -sitively to come off, " weath er or no!" On all sides we see notes of preparation, and indications of a fresh tri umph for Professor M. " Sic transit gloria Munder !" which, being translated, means that Munder's glory of last year can only be surpassed by ths sp lendor of his present achievement. Attempt at Incendiarism.?An attempt was made last night between 9 and 10 o'clock, t/> fire some wuod sheds in the rear of the buildings on the south side of Massachusetts avenue, between Sixth and Seventh streets It was discovered by the residents in the neighborhood in time to prevent any serious damage to the property. Centre Mareet?The very unpleasant weather did not prevent a full attendance of dealers in the various branches of the market this morning. Under the roof umbrellas were used as well as outside. In its present condi. tion the market is certainly very unpleasant for all those who have business there. Tee Gas dipbiccltt which was laid before Juatice D. Smith a few days since, is likely to be taken to the Circuit Court by petition. The friecda of the gas company and gaa consumers appear to be equally anxious to see the ques tions in controversy settled. The amount sued for by Mr. Doniphan was SI2 80. BEAfTirrL Paper Hangings, Ac.?Our friend Markriter, No. 600 Seventh street, has, we see. got in a fine new stock of paper hang ings. window shades and curtains, shade trim ming*, piotare cord and taasela, and all that class cf articles. We know Mr. Markriter to be a fair reliable man to deal with, and ad vise cur roaders to give him a call. OvtkTER*, Crabs, Ac ?A daily arrange ment with Norfolk and Rappahannock pack ets, and from Annapolis by Railroad, for Pickled Oysters, and Soft and llaid Shell Crabs, warranted perfectly fresh, at Drake's Restaurant, south east corner E and Seventh atree'a ?? Hctchinson A Mi-nro have received a rioh assortment of wreaths suitable for the ap proaching May festivals Their establishment h No. 310 Pennsylvania avenue, between Ninth and Teath streets. Cot rt cr Claims.?Yesterday, Albert Pike, Esq , of Arkansas, made an argument in fav or of a rehearing^ in the caso of J. K. Rogers vs. the United States, in which au adverse decision has been given. Adjourned. Arbisted ?The ?hief of Police, with Offi cer Handy, yeaterday arreeted Lawrence Cen roy, who is charged with atealing the prison keys firom the Deputy Sheriff at Norfolk, Vir ginia, and 11 berating two of his prisoner?, lie wns committed to jail by Justice Hollingshead to await a requisition. Justice llollmgshead also disposed of tho following cases : Jno. Clark, assault and bat tery ; Lizzie Brown. George Tompkins, and Edmonia Brown, threats aad assaults ; secu rity for peace. Wesley Burke, assaulting his wife : security for peace. Riotous Gathering?Last night a sort of a bail was given by a party residing in that portion of the Fourth Ward known as Swamp pudle. A fight was excited by the females and Captain Whisky, and the oonsequeoce was the exposure of some porsons who we shall not name, they not having been arrested. The fun of last night will not compare with their regrets to-day, they knowing that their friends and relatives ace aware of their presence in that rintou??ang of dangerous men and aban doned women. The Battery Taken.?Yesterday, Officers Parkham and Norwood made a descent upon a locality in the Second Ward, known as the Battery, and arrested Elizabeth Walker, who was taksn before Justice Offut and ordered to give security for peace towards Ann E. Miles. Emma Hamilton, and Cora Stewart; and bail to appear at court for an assault and battery in the magistrate's office on a witness who ap Ei a red against her Cora Stewart, Sarah irst, and Emma Hamilton, ordered to give security for peace. Lavinia Goddard was ar rested and dismissed. Supreme Coort.?Yesterday, Lucius N. Bangs, Esq., of New York, was admitted an attorney and counsellor of this court. No. 98. Wm B. Culbertson, appellant, t*.t. the steamer Southern Belle, Henry B. Shaw et al . claimants. This cause was argued by Hon. S. F- Vinton and Hon. J. P. Benjamin for the appellant, and by Hon. J. J. Critten den for tne appellees. Adjourned. Nominations ?At the mooting held last night at Coombs' Hall, of oitiiens of the Third Ward, the following nominations were mads for the City Councils: For Alderman?John H. Goddard ; Couneilmen?Lambert Tree, L. A. Gobright, and Dr. John Bogan; Assessor? G. T. Langlcy. Foot Race.?Last night,(about d o'clock, a race came off between two hackmen on Sixth street, near the Avenue. The wager was "drinks for tho crowd," but it came near be ing paid off in blows. Tbe presence of the Guards on that beat prevented a collision. Firemen's Parade ?Last night several companies of firemen wero parading. Between 9 and 10 o'clock the procession passed through the Capitol grounds, with music and torch lights. They appeared to be companies from the eastern wards. Wm. Connor was arrested yesterday, and held to bail for court by Justice Daniel Smith. He is charged with breaking into the stall in the Centre market. Watch Returns.?John Dandridge, col., assault and battery, jail; swearing and dis orderly conduct, ordered to pay Sll 41 fine and costs ; James Butler, col , disorderly con duct, S6 44 fine and costs; James Bowie, col., do.; Maria Dillon, drunk and stopping per sons on the streets, security for better beha vior, and 51 45 costs. [communicated. School Examination.?We have just re turned from the annual examination of the school of Mr. J Mattern. numbering one hun dred pupils, and we add our testimony that it was most interesting and satisfactory. The various branohes in which they were exam amined are, reading, penmanship, arithmetic, composition, grammar, natural philosophy, morality, geography, music, drawing, history, and declamation, in all of which they acquit ted themselves in a highly creditable manner; and the more so as they were examined in both English and German. This youthful seminary is hardly more than a year and a half in existence, and judging from what has been accomplished in this short time, we are warranted toprcdict for it a glo rious future. Connected as it is with the Ger man Evangelical Church Society, whose pas tor and members take a deep interest in its welfare, it must prosper. Advantages are af forded by this institution whioh we do not easily find elsewhere. The only suggestion we have to msks is that the worthy and indefatigable tutor should have an assistant in the arduous labors which he performs, and we hope he will soon have that aid. Civis.
