National Thbatre.?The thrilling nation al drama of 44 Horse Shoe Robinson,'' will be performed to-night for the third time. Great pains have beeu taken in putting thia piece properly on the stage, with a most powerful cast, and effective accessories of scenery, ccs tumes, and appointments. The incident* which illustrate the suffering and the daring achieve ments of the Southern partisan leaders, in the War of Revolution, are of a most exoiting character, and create nightly a degree of en thusiasm rarely surpassed in the performanoe of any plaT. The performances commence with <( Robert Macaire," in which Jefferson will be apt to make something of the richly comical part of " Jacques Strop." More Young Rogues?Last night Officer Wollard arrested a little boy named Win, Harrod. f?>r being concerned in' breaking into tnd robbing various stalls in the market houses. This little fellow is about eleven years of age ; but we are informed that this is not his first appearance before a magis trate upon charges of this description. If we remember rightly, he was in the county jail during the last term ef the Criminal Court The witness against him is a little b ?y about bis age, who describes the attempts made to enter different stalls, and thq robbery of Ham I ilton's stall, and the variety stand in tie upper market. Ho also described the persons woo were engaged in the robbery with Har I rod. Harrod was sent to jail. Court ow Claims ? Yesterday, Shattuck Hartwell, Esq., of Cincinnati, was appointed a commissioner to take testimony to be used in I thia court. Charles W Blincoe, Esq., of Alexandria, was admitted to practise as an attorney of this I court. 1 The argument in the case of Jacob Bigelow, I administrator of Caznau, vs. the United I Statese, was resumed in behalf of government I by the Solicitor, who was followed, in favor of I claimants, by Hon. Reverdy Johnson, who I concluded his remarks, and the case was sub I mitted for the decision of the court. Adjourn I ad. Stealing a*i> Arrest.?Yesterday a col I ored man named Joe Jenkins, was arrested by I Officer Davidson for receiving stolen goods ; I and Mrs. Curtis a white woman for stealing I them from Mrs. Dillon, by whom she hed been I employed. The examination of these case*, I before Justice Daniel Smith disclosed a degree I of degradation rarely known iu this commu I nity The details are not proper for publica tion. and we will only say th^t both were seat J to jail by Justice Smith. Robeurv.?A young man went to the guard house last night, and stutod that he had been robbed while iu the city. He described tho person he had suspected, and be learned by telegraph that the thief had been arrested in Maryland. He was awaiting a re<inisition, but was doubtful whether he had money enough to pay for his lodgings while in the city Upon searching bis pockets he wil lingly enough withdrew his request for lodg ing in the guard room, and departed to search for a more comfortable chamber. I The Exercises at Mundcr's Festival last I night were beautifully performed, and we can I only regret that the driving rain prevented 1 many fiorn attending who were designing so | to do, and who were thus deprived of what all who were present must have felt to be a great pleasure The tight of so many beautiful children collected together wasdelighful in it s - If, but more bo, when, a* on this occasion they performed the graceful evolutions of the even lsg dressed in costnmes of cheerful yet deli cate colors appropriate to the bright gay spring-time. Decoying and Kidnapping.?A colored wo man named W innie Jefferson was arrested last night as an acccssory to the decoying away and kidnapping of a young colorod girl named Hope Ann Hotnesbury. Witnesses were ex amined who stated that a kind of courtship was carried on by the young girl and a certain white man, who, it was said, was the com panion of a fugitive married woman a few weeks since. The girl and this man left the city iu a buggy, and Winnie was charged with decoying her off. The case was laid over for the present ??? Seventh Ward Anti-Know Nothing Meet* ing.?Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather, Potomac Hail was crowded lastuiglt by the voters of tho Seventh Ward. Speeches wore made by Samuel G. Flood, Eiq , Dr. Wui, B. Magruder, and F. McNerhany, Esq., and received with great applause. Many oi our Know Nothing friends were present, and we irust will profit by the wholesome truths which were told tLem by the several speaker?. What was the Cause ??Last night, a short time previous to the attempt to burn Mr Hunsberger's stable, cries and screams, ap parently from a female, were beard in tho vi cinity It alarmed the neighbors, who went out of their houses to ascertain the cause A short time after the fire broke out and was extinguished. Was this screaming to attract attention from the spot ? or, was it caused by some drunkard whipping his wif?, us on a former occasion ? Firkman's Fusibral.?We notice this morn ing that the tlags on the engine houaus belong ing to the Fire Department, were half ina?ted as a token nf respect to the memory of Mr. Benjamin Grenup, who came to bis death by the accident on Monday night last. Mr. Grenup was a young gentleman who was high ly esteemed by a very large circle of acquaint ances in Washington He was a member of the Columbia Fire Company.

It was discovered and extinguished before serious damage wao done. About 11 o'clock, a stable situated on Eight near, L stroet, and belonging to Mr. Adams was burned by some incendiary. The horse and carriage was saved. The loss is not very heavy. Thk gbhtlkuan who called on Charles H. Anderson two weeks since for important pa pers belonging to Charles Mahon, Esq.. can procure tho same by calling on Mr. Anderson with McSpedon A Baker, Stationers, 4Q2 D street, between Sixth and Seventh. * Qakboq* says that the most ignominious death possible, for an aspiring young hero, who is panting to writ* his name high upon thesoroll of fame, is to be shot by mistake for a wild turkey.
