EVENING STAR LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The Cajb or Herbert.?At ten o'clock to day, the prisoner being brought in and hia c antel being in attendance. Judge Criwf' ri read the following decision npon the applies tion for the release of the prisoner upon a writ of habeas corpus. Mr Du Boi?, the minister from the Netherlands, did not appear. In re Philemon T. Herbert on Habeas Corpus. The testimony adduced at the hearing on the writ of habeas corpus directing the mar shal of the District of Columbia to bring the body of Philemon T. Herbert before mo cn Saturday last, has been the subject in connec tion of the law arising thereon of as full con sideration as the intervening time will allow. I was strongly impressed by the evidence as it was detailed, and the reflection of which I have sought aid, instead of damaging that impression has strengthened the conviction er. tertuiued when the evidence was closed. I abstain from giving the reasons for tha con viction arrived at. Why, must bo obvious. In any view which a jury enn take of the evi dence under proper instructions from the Couit as to the law, it is quite clear to my mind that n conviction of murder should not take place. If the evidence had left room for debate whether the prisoner was guilty of murder or manslaughter, or was eulitlcd to acquittal, al though the ground for such debate might have been slight, I should have remanded him to prison. In relation to the two last branches of enquiry just stated, via : Whether a charge of uan alaug'nter can be maintained or the defendant should be discharged, there is contradictory testimony, and not only contradictory, but utterly irreconcilable; and it is not for the Court, but a jury, to say what of that testi mony they will credit, and to what the weight of evidence which may be adduced cn a trial shall point When a matter of fact is in volved, the Court should bail or remand ; to dischnrge, would be for the Court to try and decide the truth of the fact for which a person may be committed, instead of a jury, l'eters do r'tTs Law of Bail, 522-3, Ac. The order of the Court is, that the prisoner enter into a recognisance, with ore or more pood surety or sureties, in the lum of ten thousand dollars, conditioned for his appear ance at the next term of the Criminal Court of tho District cf Columbia, to be holden on the third Monday of June next, to answer to the charge of manslaughter of Thomas Keat ing. and not to depart from the jurisdiction of the Court without the leave thereof, and on his failure to do so. that he be remanded to the jail of Washington county, District of Co lumbia. Joseph H Berret and James Owner were received as bail, and the prisoner was set at liberty. Sahbath School Celebrate*?This morn ing the Sabbath schools attached t) the Pro testant churchesof this city assembled for their annual celebration, and was undoubtedly tho largest gathering of little children ever wit nessed in this District. It was found neces sary to chauge the arrangements made at first, in order that all the schools might part?ke in the celebration. It wa* intended that tw> divisions should be mad<>, one to proceed, j f ter the assemblage in the Smithsonian grounds, to the E Street Baptist church, tho other to the First Presbyterian church, on Four and-a half street; but after both of those churches wer* crowded, it was found that several schools were outside The FirstCon^regationalchurch or Fifth street was then opened, and the re maining schools conducted thither by the marshals. It was designed that the Rev. Drs. Murray of Georgetown, and Gurly should address the schools, but that arrangement was ehanged, ??nd those reverend gentlemen addressed the divifrkm at the Presbyterian Churcb, and Rev. Messrs Hodges and Griswold to that at the Baptist Church; and the acb?H>Is at the Con* gregati.ral church were addressed by a gen tleman whose name we did not learn Esputaund Weber, witn their splendid brars banji. helped to make up the procession, and enlivened it with appropriate musio, skilfully performed. An attempt was made to obtain the actual number of children in tho proces sion, but it was a failure, the crowd upon the sidewalk frequently confusing those engaged. The police officers, under the direction of John Davis. E?q , the Chief of Police, ren dered good service by preventing the hacks, omnibuses, and horses from breaking through the lines. The Homicide.?We are informed by M-j r Graham. of California, one of the witnesses examined for the defence on Friday evening last, in the case of P. T. Hertert, chargci witb killing Thomas Keating, that our report of a portion of his testimony is incorrect. Thus, no report him as having said that "He (Herbert) is a quiet and peaceable man. ex cept when a little aroused by passion;" whereas he said Ijp4'4 He is a quiet and peaceable man. When insulted, or bit pas sion* aroused, he would defend himself like itier men." Mij Graham also informs u* that Mr. Gar diner sajs that cur report of his testimony Is incorrect, where we say that he said " Go away, a damned scoundrel, or he would kill him Whereas, he said instead thereof? Go away, a damned scoundrel, or get me some breakfast." yoi? ?The reporter very cheerfully gives these gentlemen the benefit of their state ment. but after referring to his notes is in clined t rely upon his versiou; however the public present at the time the testimony was given can decide. His purpose certainly was t > give a scrupulously accurate report of the evidence - The Sea or Ice : or, A Moturr's Prater great moral drama, to eminently sue r"?:ul in other cities, will be produced at the National Tueatre to-morrow evening. We under-tacd gre v. preparations have been made f r i - production. at.d it may be expected to ?'jrpa<u a&y soenic and dramatic pr>Juction ever pr duced in this city The cast is a fine ne, embracing the names of the entire com pany?Mr. Boniface as Carlos, the adventurer, as per!"'i-med by him in Baltimore with great I ra,*?

We doubt not, an overwLelming housa will greet this new drama t- m rrow evening : the theatre being closed t -night for the purpose of rehearsing the Sea of Ioe. Careless Driving ?Saturday afternoon, Col H. Nay lor was placed in considerable ranger, wnle sitting in his buggy, by the careless driving of the coachman of a hotel. N was Just preparing to start from C 'treet. near Sixth, where he had been attend ing to business, when the coach was driven rapidly to his buggy, and the wheel of the t'h, catching the skaft of his carriage, his " r*e was thrown, and but for the assistance icniered by persons near by, Col. N would ave been severely injured The driver did t stop, but kept on, dragging the buggy a -t.ort distance with the coach This habit of driving bo rapidly and carelessly is indulged in by drivers, both public and private Pe destrians lives are endangered by it. and it is an offence against the laws of the Corporation Fumsti ?Yesterday, the river shore and the wharves, were reported to by number* ot men and boys who were anxious to spend the day in tithing for minnows Rods and lines were in demand, and frequent inquiries were mide for places 4,to get the best bait." In tte afternoon the amateurs returned to the c'ty. very few having as many fish as they could carry. ?-? % The Maiyilla Emporium.?Maxwell 1 Bro. are again in receipt of new style Mantillas.

None of thom were serious, all Jr***' ^ intemperance, and settled by the oflteerft at-d auxiliary guard without much uim-u'iy 1 nr. J MESTow.t So? iett give their annual rr-:: ;r c?"?u:emorat-m of the landing of . a,. m fc athers, at Kuj t il ,tel, on Tues day tt'.ch.ug. To the. Editor of the Union : Sir: You will greatly oblige as by giving the following an insertion in yoar issue of this evening : In tbe local columns of the "Organ" is the following : 4> Mr. Smith was in favor of discharging tbe defend not. and Mr Birch for committing him " This is entirely ineorroct, and unauthorised. The report in the "Evening Star" is substan tially correct. "Organ" will please correct. Yours, very respectfully, Da.vikl Smith, Jas. H. Birch. Washisgto.v, May 10, 185ft Tbe judgment reads thus : "After a careful examination of the evi dence, we feel it to be duty we owe, alike to tbe defendant and the government, that tbe onds of justice may be fully mot. to send the matter to the criminal court of this District. That tribunal we conceive to be the proper one to grant or refuse the application of the defendant for a discharge. As to tbe applica tion for bail, we are divided in opinion, and we therefore commit the defendant to the custody of the marshal until he be discharged by due course of law."?Union of Saturday evening.

TELEGRAPHIC BTBW* FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BY HOl'SK PRINTING TELEORAPH. ARRIVAL OF THE ATLANTIC. FOL K DATS LATER FROM El'ROFB. Nsw York, May 12?The Collins mail steamer Atlantic hu arrived. bringing foir days later European sew*. She left Liver pool on the 30th April. The Canard iteuitr Asia arrived out on Monday the 28th The principal feature of the news of the week is the publication of theefiijlel treaty of peace ; together with three appended oonven ttons ; the first baring referenoe to the paeaage of the Dardanelles ; the aeeond arranging the details of the naval force In the Black Sea; and the third declaring that the Aland Islands sha.! remain unfortified. Also an important declaration of maritime law, via : abolishing privateering?that a neutral flag is to protect the cargo, except when contraband, and neu tral gt.eds under an enemy 'a flag arc to be ex euij't from capture. Ihe treaty is precisely the same a* received by the laH sieamor. The mining articles five and six relate to the general tmnesty and exchange of prisoner*, and seven and eight ^ivc Turkey admiasion into the European po litical system. and secure European arbitra tion in case of dispute with her l'cace has been formally proclaimed. Important meetings of the political partlea in Parliament presage trouble to Lord Pal merston. Ttie Parliamentary Blue Book has been pub lished, containing all the Central American documents. There is nothing elso of striking interest. [SBCOWD DISPATCH ] The missing articles of the treaty ore to the following effect : Art 5th Grants a full and entire amneaty to tbo.-e their subjects who may have Leen com promised by any participation whatever in the events of tbe war in favor of the enemy ; and ?t i.-. expressly understood that thia amneaty shall extend to tbe subject# of each belligerent power who may have continued during tbe war to be employed in the service of or the other belligerents. Art. 6. Declare? that the prisonera of war shall be immediately given up on either aide. Art 7. Declares that the Sublime Parte shall be admitted to participate in the adven ture* of the publio law and xystem of Europe. 1 heir majesties engage each on his own part to respect the independence and integrity of t je Ottoman empire, and guarantee in oon> moii a striot observance of that engagement; and will, in consequence, consider any eet tending to its violation ad a question ox gen eral interest. Article bib says if there should arise be tween toe Sublime Porte and one er more of the other signing powera any misunderstand i ? which might endanger the maintenance of their relations, the Sublime Porte and each o. su<*h powers, before having reeource to force, shail afford the other contracting par* t.es an opportunity of preventing such ex tremity by means of their mediation The following additional article has been rendered imperative by the necessity of trans p)rtirg troops from the seat of war, but it was evidently an afterthought consequent upon a suddenly suggested difficulty. AdoitI''H4L and Iraisitokt Artjclb ? 1 tie stipulations of tbe convention respecting the Straits of the Dardanelles, signed thia day, shall not be applicable to veaeels of war em ployed by the belligerent powera for the evac uation by sea of the territories occupied by their armies ; but said stipulations ahell re sume thtir entire effect as soon aa the evaoaa tion shall be term nated.
