KVTNINO STAR. ^OCAL LKTKLLIQENufr. r J HiiBWT A*n Kbatijg Cas*.?Long Arc the hour assigned for the opening of h Criminal Court (11 a. in.) the court room ? pr>wded. in anticipation of the opening Vtfce trial of P T Herbert, charged with the ?rder of Thomas Keating. At twenty min ?* ra5t eleven a m., Herbert was brought u> /- in the jail and placed in the prisoner's ye was speedily surrounded by his r rtds andoounsel Mr Wm Carey Jones d ex-Oo* McDougal, of California, stepped *ver the railing and Mated themselves in the Lt by the prisoner The court room was found 00 oppressive in , , i, .uenee of the heat and crowd, that it was f und necessary to bring in carpenter# to take wn the blinds and throw open the great ->hern window, and an officer was stationed 3, the window to prevent the crowd from 00 .gpving the position. Messrs Bradley, Ratcliffe, and Hon. Percy Walker appeared for the defence, and the District Attorney for the United States. Xhe names of the following witnesses were called for the United States : Thos. Broduck, jthn Edbrigbt. Charles Quinn, Jerry Rior dan. Michael Dougherty, G. De Venois, Mi chael Carroll, Patrick Keating, John Redig, Francis A Maynard, James Quinn, Dr Thos Miller. Dr Frederic Warren of Mass., Henry \ Wiilard, John Riely. The indictment being read to the prisoner, be answered " not guilty" in a low, but firm tone . The calling a jury was then entered upon, and the regular panel having been exhausted, it wm found that but five jurors had been fworn. viz : Edward M. Edehn, John T. Brad ley John Scribner, Enoch Moreland, John tessford, jr , the balance not being qualified, 1 either through having formed orexpressed an opinion, or lacking the property qualification, or were challenged peremptorily by counsel. Those disqualified or challenged on the reg ular panel were Benedict Miburn, Rexin Beck, Archibald R. Quantrill, Thomas Sylvester, Thomas Lundy. Samnel T Drury, Samuel Phillips, John S. Devlin. Thomas J. Davis, William Clary, Samuel McKnight, Henry (1. Murray, Thomas E. Baden, James B Hol mead. Leonidas Bowen. Joseph S. Worthing ton, William A. Kennedy, Geo D. Spencer, Jacob Harsh man, Geo. Harvey, John W. Ott, David W. Oyster, Alexander M. Smith, Aaron Devine. Up to the time of going to press no acces giwLS have been made to those already sworn upon the jury, and it is probable that consid able time will be occupied in the attempt to cmpannol a jury. Thb Lxamisatioji of Wm. Sullivan and John Kg^leston, for killing C W. Bell alias Casper Kohrrran, was commenced this morn ing. at about noon, before Justice Dan'l Smith and John H. Ooddard. Mr. Martin, attorney at law, appeared for Sullivan. There was a large crowd around the prison windows, ap parently interested in the proceedings in pro gress there. At 20 minutes to 12, Eggleston and Sullivan were brought into the room. The witnesses for the United States were removed to the passage, away from the trial room. George Beckert sworn ?In the evening about 8 o'clock, four or five men came to the window and asked for something to drink ; afterwards heard swearing and slapping with hands; I went out and saw one with a knife ; outside the hou*e ; saw some one have some thing ; thought it was a knife; don't know who bad it; some one of the party said to me you are the one that struck tnat follow ; after 1 went in the house, looked out the window and some one threw a tumbler at me; after this Keese said the Captain is cut; saw him lying on the floor bleeding; don't know who done it: thought Sullivan was in the bar room ; there was no fight in there previously ; did not see Bell till he was cut. Germans to be examined, Mr. B. Shadd was sworn as interpreter. Conrad Eost sworn.?The first he saw was those men (Eggleston and Sullivan) with others coming in; one kicked up a fuss out side the house, one man (Myers) was knocked down, and then jumped upon by the whole party and beat, they then want to the window and threw glasses at Beckert on the inside; Sullivan was the last of the party who left; he had a light in his hand, and was about to throw it into Beckert's house; he did not, however, but set it down ; after he set the candle down he left the window and went toward Captain Bell, who was standing with his baek t?? the window, at about ten feet off; be came to Bell and struck him in the back; Sullivan did it; he bad something in his hand, it looked like a knife; is sure it was Sullivan; Sullivan came behiud Bell; was about ten feet from Bell; Bell turned and went into the passage; saw Bell after he was struck; did'nt hear Bell speak after; did'nt speak when he w;is struck: saw no one standing near Sulli van or Bell; Sullivan had all his clothes on ; ^ioue of Sullivan's party were near at the time; two Germans, beside himself, near by. The person who struck Bell came back to the house, a^ked for his hat; couldn't iden tify any of theothers of tho party; can partic ularize Sullivan, bocause he was at the win dow before the act; Sullivan went and talked with others ; I went to Bell and put my hand on him ; the party who came in were lighting with Myers and Thoma; learned their names afterward. A E. L. Keeso sworn.?Was employed on the 4th inst , by Beckert, to preserve order; when I got there Capt. Bell was standing at the door receiving tickets; stayed there until near eight o'clock; everything was quiet ex cept a slight skirmish at about seven o'clock ; saw Isaiah Stewart, Daniel Stewart, Jiggle eton, Sullivan, Ranggy Junes, and Eslin, sit ting behind the music stand; Jones was very drunk, and some one put him on the table behind the stand to sleep; asked the Captain how they got in, and if they paid; told the Germans to keep away from them that they were in liquor and likely to raise a fuss; about half-past eight o'clock Eggleiton asked me what time it was: I looked at my watch and told him; noticed Wm. Thoma there with a little stick in his hand ; Sullivan jerked it out of his hand; that created a difficulty, and Sul livan was about to strike Thoma. [Here we were forced to close our report, Mr. Keese still being on the witness' stand. | At one o'clock a large number of witnesses were to be examined, and the hearing likely to occupy the entire afternoon. The Gas Light Compart?Tbis compary is now organized, as follows : President and Trea-urer, George W Rig^s; Secretary in charge of office. Ac , Jos. F. Brown ; Manag ing Foreman, or Superintendent, Wm Bond. Uf Mr. Riggs' high character, energy, and liberality, it is unnecessary to speak in this community, and a better selection for the re sponsible position could not havo been made. Mr Brown has been Secretary of the Board of Directors for many years, and is one of the largest stockholders of the company. He possesses tho peculiar talents required for the management of the office concerns, and we hazard the prediction that in a few months the affairs ot the company will show a very material improvement in more respects than one. Mr. Bond has been for twenty-nine ^ears connected with the gas light company of Bal timore?for the last dozen years as managing foreman, and is thoroughly acquainted with the gas business in every department, and we are much mii-taken if, under his superinten dency. the city will again be buried in Cim merian darkness, as it was last April, from, as we believe, the want of knowledge or at tention on the part of the then superintendent We learn that one of the directors, Col. Free man, late of the army, (a very large stock holder.) has been giving much of his time and peculiar qualifications frr the business to wards sycteui&tuing the affairs of the company in every department, and w? are confident both the company and public will soon expe rience material improvement'' from his labors. The Board have declared a dividend of five per cent (one dollar per share) on the par value of the stock, out of the earnings of the company for the last j>ix months, payable on the lith inst. Thi* i? destined very shortly to be the m< st valuable stock iu the country, and we recommend our citizens ?ho have money to invest to purchase at once an in terest in the company. Watch Retirss.?W.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Georgetown, July 9.1350. Notwithstanding the very unfavorable state of tho weather yesterday, the spacious hall at k -ir TjT College was crowded by a brilliant and intelligent audience, composed of citizens of the District and from the sur rounding country, to witness tho exercises of the annual commencement. The young or ators, one and all, acquitted themselves in a manner which perfectly delighted their hear ers, and was creditable to their Alma Mater. Among the speeches which elicited loud and universal applause was the " Battle of Iena." by John F Marrion ; " Genius Developed by Circumstanoes," by Harry B tutree. A. B ? and " Fort Christina," byJas.D Dougherty' The last-named speaker, though of Celtic parents, done no discredit to the character he assumed, viz : the Dutchman ; and kept his bearers completely convulsed with laughter during the entire delivery of his speech. The valedictory, by John Rieckelmaun, was ex cellent, and proved tbe author to be a youne man of no ordinary calibre of mind and talent The annual address of the Philodemic Society, yrru j Alemong> was also excellent. The degree of A. M was conferred on the .ollowing?Michael D Dimetry, of Louisiana; Lugene Casserly, of California ; Harvey Bau tree, of the District of Columbia; Manuel Garciade Zumga, Uraguay; R. H. Gardener, of Maryland ; Jas. M Spellissey, of Ireland ; F. Waters of Kentucky; George H Dyer, of Maryland; and Joseph H. Blandford, of Maryland. The degree of M D. was conferred on Ja?. V i0rdan> ?f Vir2in?a ; Francis S. Barberin, of the District of Columbia ; Charles Gerard of France ; John Malone, of Ireland, and C. M Hammett, of Maryland. The degree of A B. was conferred on John Rieckelmann. of Ohio, and John F. Callan, of the District of Columbia. Handsome gold medals were awarded four of the students in the class pursuing the sec ond course of philosophy. A note was received from President Pierce apologising for his inability, in consequence of the inclemency of the weather and press of official business, to be present, as was expect ed. and informing them of his regrets at tbe unexpected disappointment A very lar^e number of very handsome premiums were dis tribotcd among the more proficient pupils by the Rev. M. CTGill. Among the guests we noticcd Secretaries Campbell and McClelland At an election for Directors of the Farmers and Mechanics' Bank, held on Monday, Col. m Doughty was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Dr 0 M Linthioum ibis .Bank has declared a dividend of six per cent, for the last six months On the above named day Col. B. Ogle Taloe as elected a Director in the Metropolitan Kailroad company, in tho place of John T Towers, Esq. One of the most remarkable illustrations of the noble qualities of the Newfoundland dog came under my observation yesterday morn ing. During the previous night, his compan ion, a small terrier, bad been killed by one of the police. The Newfoundland, having missed him in the morning, went in search of him. and, finding his old playfellow and com panion dead in the street, he quietly laid him self down by him, where he remained patiently watching for several hours, every few minutes touching him gently with one of his fore paws, as it trying to rouse bim up, and then car essing him affectionately by licking him about the head and mouth. Tbeoonduct of this poor dumb animal was truly touching, and might serve to teach many a rational being now in our midst|a useful lesson. All surrounding nature seems to berejoioicg this morning in the beneficial effects cfthe re freshing showers of yesterday Flour has considerably advanced ; and hold ers are firm this morning at Sft.75a$7 for good standard brands. No sales of wheat since our last upon which we could have reliable quo tations. Corn 4oa5()c for yellow and white. Spectator. The Difficulty- Settlkp ?It is said that John Van Buren is about to wed the only daughter of the late John C. Calhoun ? Post. " The only daughter of the late John C. Calhoun" will hardly thank the newspapers for giving her two husbands at once. "Prince John" must defer his pretentions until the Hon. Mr Clemson, of Maryland, shall have " shuffled off this mortal coil " before he can even have " a showing" with the brilliant, accomplished and dignified matron referred to in the above paragraph.?Boston Cottrier. If the papers should happen to subtitute "tho only daughter of the late Gov. McDuffie," it might settle tho difficulty. We have some doubts, however, as to the propriety of parad ing such matters before thepublic eye.?Penn sylvanian. Then why do you parade them ? More Camels for Texas ?The United States steamship Surprise, now lying at the Navy Yard, is to be sent again in a few weeks for a reinforcement to the stock of camels brought in by her on bur last trip, and landed in Texas for tbe United States Government uses. It has been found that the experiment succeeds admirably, and that for the transfer of the United States stores across the plains of Texas tbe camel is perfectly fitted, and withstands the soil and climate of the country without any difficulty. Thus far only thirty five have been brought. It is intended in the next trip to bring fifty.?N. Y. Times. IV A young man named Crittenden was taken into eustody on Saturday last while at tempting to pass a forged check for the sum of >525 at the bank of \ irginia, Richmond.
