EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Sevate Proceeding* or District Inter est ?In the Senate, yesterday, Mr. Thomp son Introduced the following resolution, which was adopted : KesoLvfd, That the Committee for the Dis trict of Colombia inquire into the expediency of receding to the State of Maryland George town and all that part of the District of Co lumbia which lies west of Rock Creek, upon such terms and conditions as will secure to Georgetown an amount of money equal to that whieh was appropriated for the benefit of Alexandria while it was a part of the ter ritory of the Distrit *- of Columbia; and that said committee have leave to report by bill or otherwise. Mr. Brown asked the Senate to indulge him by proceeding te the consideration of tbe bills on the calendar relating to tbe concerns of the District of Columbia, contending that if not disposed of at once they would be likely to be delayed or perhape lost for want of time The motion having been agreed to, tbe fol lowing bills were considered and passed : A bill to incorporate the ?' Apothecaries' Association of the District of Columbia." A bill to relievo the Corporation of George town from the payment of bills for making roads west of Rock Creek. A bill to provide for the public instruction of youth in primary schools throughout the county of Washington, in the District of Co lumbia, without the limits of the citiei of Washiagtou and Georgetown. The bill to provide for improving the har boT of Georgetown, in the District of Colum bia, was next taken up; when Mr. Hunter objected to its consideration, on the ground that it was of the same class of bill* as those relating to river and harbor im provements, and should not be considered when the Senate was so thinly attended. Mr Brown was understood to say that the bill did not come within that elass, as he would be prepared to show at the proper time; but he would not object to its postponement to a future day. Thb Pa!t<>rawa at Iroit Hall was pretty well attended last evening, but had not so large an audience as we have frequently seen attend similar exhibitions of far less merit The artist deserves crowded bouses. Japan was unrolled last night, and from the quiet attention of the audience, with due applause, we judge it gave general satisfaction. These scries of pictures, though not so elaborate in the details of the manners, customs, Ac., of the Japanese, as those of China and of the Chinese, still the scenic effect is unusually good, and they eonvey a faithful exposition of the negotiations of the treaty of amity con ducted and successfully concluded by Com. Perry, and are remarkably pleasing and in teresting. China it exhibited to-nigbt, and Japan to-morrow afternoon and evening, and as both these panoramas are fully endorsed for their truthfulness by Com Perry, Bayard Taylor, end other distinguished travellers, as well as highly lauded for their artistic merit by artists and connoisseurs of New York and this city. We hope and predict for the exhibition a golden harvest. Indian Delegations ? Jao. W Grey Eyes, J. 8 Bearskin, and Joel Walker, of the Wy andott tribe of Indians, accompanied by Gen. J. W. Whitfield, of Kansas, arrived in this eity yesterday on business with the Govern ment, and have taken lodgings at Brawns' Hotel. Hole-in-the-day, chief of theChippe was in Minnesota, arrived here last night In addition to those named there are other del ations of Indian chiefs in this city to transact usiness tor their tribes with the Department. Generally these delegations are composed of educated men who stand high in the estiina< urn of their people. A Niw Ca ptai5.?At a meeting of the Washington Highlanders held last evening at their armory, Mr John Watt, the efficient superintendent of tbe Executive grounds, wai unanimously elccted Captain of the company in room of Captain John Bain resigned Cap tain W att has long been one of the most ac tive and efficient members of tbe corps They part with Captain Bain with regret, as by his urbaaity and attention to bis duties he won the regard of all the Highlanders. We lea ax that Rev. Mr. Haskell, tbe Eastor of tbe Western Presbyterian Church, as returned from his tour to raise funds for the completion of his church edifice, and that be will resume public worship with his twice afflicted congregation on next Sabbath in the lecture-room of their partially-demolished church. Tbe fractured tower has been so re moved as to preclude all danger to either the Sabbath school or the worshipping assembly. Mr. Sheklee, of Pennsylvania, whose horses were stolen from him some time since, and recovered in Virginia, by Officer Kimball, of this city, started with his property for Chester County this morning. His horses were valued at $450. The party accused of stealing them, is in jail in Baltimore, and will probably have a further hearing to day on the arrival of Mr. Sneeler. Whig Meeting.?We have been requested by several of our resident Whigs, with the advice and concurrence of a number of Whig members of C&ngre&s, to invite a meeting or the Whigs of tbe District of Columbia at 8 o'clock on Saturday evening, tbe 2Lst instant, at the Washington Assembly Rooms, (Copp s Saloon,) for the purpose of consulting on the course which their duty to their country and their party prescribes to them in the approach ing presidential contest. Mr. J. F. C. OrriTT, who was burned by a accident at the mass meeting on Wednes day night, is still in such a condition that fears ar* entertained of the loss of sight. We are informed that the right eye may be saved, but fur the left there is little hope. The young man is an industrious, good citisen, and highly esteemed by all who know him. Thk affair between Mrs. Frit* and Mr. and Mrs Bruoks, mentioned in the Star yes terday, grew out of an altercation among some children Mrs. F threw water on them, and for this she was held to security for peace. She being afraid of Mr. Brooks and bis wife, had them held for peace. There was no fight between them. ~ Kcnxel's Original Ofera Troupe, it will be seen by reference to our advertising ool umas, commence a series of their entertain ments at the National Theatres on Monday night next This will be good news, no doubt, to our music-loving, as well as fun-loving cit izens, with whom this troupe are deservedly popular. ? Justice D. Smith was kept busy yesterday with tbe examination of the following cases : < Assa Ann Harris, Wm. Brooks, Martha Jor dan, and Puk Slater, threats, security for peace. James Muiqaeo*. and John McPher sob, breach of peaoe , do. Seven boys were examined on a charge of riot, and they were all dismissed Come, why will you suffer all the illsof bed bags, cockroaches, moths, ants, and every other species of insects when Lyon's Magnetic Pewder will surely rid your house of all such pestilence.

The Property Holders in the northern portion of the eity are preparing to petition the Mayor and Councils for a number of spe cial police for day and night serviee in that section of tbe city. Their reasons for this eourse are sufficient to satisfy thinking men of tbe necessity for such an addition to the pelice foree. ??

We regret to not be able to Dime positively the person with whom this capital idea originated, nevertheless, if we do not err in oar judg ment, we might almost assure the reader that this enterprise is about to be oarried out bj the eminent artist who for the past six months ha? conducted the calinary department of the Messrs. Willards' Hotel, and who was former ly proprietor of the Nanoleon hotel, Hoboken, which was the resort of the fashionable society of New York. He is the artist to whom we rendered a juat tribute in our paper of the 6th of February, 1856, for the splendid and mag nifioent supper which the Messrs. Willard pre sented to their guests on that oocasion. (See our issue of th".. date ) Should this capital idea be realised, the First Ward may be proud of possessing an establishment of the first or der, and one whioh will compare with any of the kind in Europe or Amerioa. It* ADDITIONAL FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE BY THE AMERICA AT HAL IFAl. The steamship Proponts, with the new sub marine telegraph cable, which is to cross the Qulf of St. Lawrenoa and connect Newfound land with Cape Breton, sailed from London on the 2d of June The cable will be laid down during the present month, and will form the first link in tho London and New York Submarine Telegraph line, which it is confi dently anticipated here will be in successful operation between London and New York within twelve or eighteen months. The important insurance suit?The New York, Newfoundland, and London Telegraph Company, vs. Lloyd's Insurance Company, London, has been settled, upon very advan tageous terms to the Telegraph Company. AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. Lord Palmerston replied to D'laraeli's in quiry as to American affairs, in the following terms: Lord Palmerston said : I am unable to give any definite answer to the question with which the honorable Baronet concluded his state ment, namely: "What particular steps had been taken during the last few weeks to ob tain an answer from the American Govern ment with regard to the subject of arbitration on the Central American question? ' I can only say this, that the American Gov ernment have made fully aware of that offer having been made on the part of her Majes ty 's Government, and we have not thought it nccessary, as yet topress, in any special man ner, for a reply. With regard to the goneral tenor of the Honorable Baronet's observations, I quite agree with him, that in the present state of things between the two governments, it would be inexpedient if the opinion of the Government was to be expressed I have no hesitation in saying that I feel the interests of the country and the prospects of the per manent maintenance of amicable relations between this country and the United States, would be best promoted by the continuation of that forbearance, that judicious forbear ance, which the House has hitherto shown Upon other occasions of somewhat similar character, when questions of importance were pending in reference to the last war, or to the negotiations by which it was concluded, this House haa acted in a manner most honorable to its judgment, by abstaining from throwing any possible difficulties in the way of the Government, by entering into premature dis cussion of such questions The questions now pending may be of a very grave character, and I hope, I sincerely hope, and not without good reason, that these discussions may ter minate without any interruption to the peace able relations between the two countries. [Hear, hear.] Whatever cause there may be for collision, it is to be hoped that the good sense on both sides of the water may prevent any unneces sary collision; but certainly discussiun in this House which must be productive of a conflict of opinion?some too much upon one side and some too much upon the other?eould not fail to be attended with injurious results Now, I may be permitted, when upon my legs to refer, though I am not quite sure whether tbe Honorable Baronet alluded to it. to a question put yesterday, whether Mr. Cramp ton had retired from Washington ? I stated that we had indirectly receired information that such was the case. I learn from nay noble friend at the head of the Foreign De partment, that the information came by the Cunard steamer which left Halifax on the 22d I of May Yesterday evening there was another packet from New York wbich left there on the 24th This packet did not bring any con firmation of the report of the 22d We are therefore not in possession of any < fi nal in formation on the subject. [Hear, hear ] ITALY. A Paris dispatch states that the notes pre sented by France and Austria to the Neapoli tan Government arc nearly identical No re forms are positively indicated by name but the general tone is urgent and prcsging. Aus tria objects to foreign active interference, and hints that the present crisis has been planned by Sardinia, stating, however, that Austria has no desire to interfere with the liberal in stitutions of Sardinia France, however, hints at an intervention should an outbreak take place in Naples or Sicily. In the British Par liament, Lord Clarendon has consented to pro duce the papers addressed by Sardinia to the Conference, and gave as his opinion that be fore the close of the session there must be a discussion upon tho affairs of Italy. He added that he had reason to believe thai France and Austriu were desirous of removing the troops as soon as possible from the Italian territory The Piedinootese Chamber of Deputies has presented General Marmora with an acre of valuable building land within the city of Turin. GREECE. The King of Greece has asked the Infanta of Spain in marriage for the heir to the Greek throne, and a favorable answer had been given by Spain. King Otho was about to set out for Germany. RUSSIA. The Ctar has made tbe following diplomatic appointments ' M Budberg, Embassador at Berlin, to Vienna, replaced at Berlin by Ba ron Brunow; Prince Dolgorouski, formerly Minister of War, Embassador to Paris, and Count Creptowiioh, Embassador to London. The Central Committee of the Polish De mocracy have published a protest against the terms on which the Csar granted an amnesty to Polish refugees. They assert that in taking up arms for their national independence in 1830, they fulfilled a duty?not anything to be pardoned?and they could not now, with out renouncing their country's claims, accept the title of pardoned rebels |^C?a|ks, Brenchitis.?Brown'a Bren CHIAL THSOCIIEft are a* hnillltr aa ' lioaaatiold word*" la Boeton tKiaM few af oar cttiaana wlio are afflicted with ?By troubleof tbe langi hare failed to avail tbeinaelven of Uii favo im an* thoroughly tested upaclflr.
