EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE^ Prof. Hesrtos Acoustics.?At the Albany Scientific Convention on Thursday, Professor Henry, of tbis city, read a paper on the Acous tics oj Publii Buildings ; a subject which he treated with great success at the meetiog in Washington and Providence, lie reviewed very succinctly the peculiarities of indent architecture, and held that every vestige of 9*4 architecture should be preserved with awpnious care lie then proceeded to treat of modern edifices. While the principles of sound, be said, have been studied with eare for a half century, these principles have bat rarely been applied to the construction of rooms intended for public purposes. What is wanted is, a combination of Kientific knowl edge, the results of careful investigation, till the highest practical skill in determining the question of the application of acoustic prin ciples to public buildings becomes necessary to institute experiments J>uch experiments have b?-en tried under his direction. One experi inent proved that the voice, while a pers >n reads a book in an open field, in the ordinary t ue. is heard distinctly in front to a distance ct 10U feet, at the side to a distance of 75, and in the rear to the distance of 30 feet, in ex perimenting on practical acoustics, it is, there t. re, necessary to place the speaker opposite a wall, and to note the distance at which he ceases to take cognisance of the reflection of the sound of bis voice. A wall lined with thin board will produce a reflection loud, bat short A steel wall will produce the highest degree of resonance; ?o will a wall of glass. The principles of acoustics thus laid down have been applied with success in the con st ruction of the new lecture room in the Smith sonian Institute A Committee, of whiob Prof. Henry wiw the hob, was charged with the duty of making this apartment as nearly f er fect as a public room could be. The original jdan was modified; the lower floor was for saken because of the heavy pillars which studded it. and an upper room was selected, into which a portion of the towors was thrown, so a? to break up the sound. The speaker stands upnn the rostrum in much the same p .sition he would occupy if he stood in the iLuuth of a trumpet, and the rays of souod go from his lips straight forward, undiverted by 8Dk1?s >0 the building The room is 100 feet by so. and fan-shaped, with a gallery in horse fh^e forir. and a smaller gallery behlnl. in either of these latter you may hear the slight est whisker from the stage The walls are slate and piaster. Cautio* to Sportsvm ?Our bird-shooters in the excitement of the sport seem to forget the section of a late act of Congress, which rta-is as follows: ?'Sue. 2 And be it further mactr-l, That it shall not be lawful for any person or persons to ride, drive, or lead any horse, mule, or other animal over the wooden part of the upper Eastern Branch or Benning's bridge at a faster gait than a walk , or to discharge any gun or fire-arm on or under the said bridge, or from the causeway leading thereto; and all person violatirg either of the provisions of this section shall forfeit and pay. for each and every such offence. a penalty of not more thin ten nor less than five dollars, to be recovered is the name of the United States before any magistrate in the c??untv of W ashington and District of Co lumbia. the money when collected to be handed over to the levy court, and by them applied to such repair? and improvements of the road leading to the bridge as from time to time may be required." We learn that the necessity for the passage of this act was urgent; that at times the gun firing upon the bri Ige was to continuous as to eloui the bridge and causeway with the smoko of powder, and that horses passing the bridge have been so startled by the firing as to crouch to the gr>un 1 trembling with excessive fright. All good citizens will see the necessity of the law and the propriety of complying with it in good faith. ? ' Crihiwai Court.?This morning, Daniel O Keefe wa? found guilty of petty larceny and sentenced to eighteen months' imprison ment in jail Carrington for defence The trial of William Sullivan, charged with the murder of Caspar Kohrman. was entered upon, and up to the time our report closed the following jurors had been obtained : John Scrivener, Eno<*h Moreland, Thomas J.

Attempt it Ixccxdi arum.?Saturday Bight, some malicious person attempted to burn the frauae dwelling house on the corner of Twenty-fourth street and New Hampshire av- j enue by kindling a fire between the weather boards atd studding of the building The Lou?? was occupied by an old colored woman, who had in her care a sick female at the time the attemit was made. It was discovered and extinguished before serious damage was done. A Successful Excursion ? As an evidence of fublic appreciation of a rightly-conducted excursit-u, we arc g!ad to record the fact that over seven hundred tickets TjT the Central Lodge ex<*u--i >n had been sold this m >rnin^' prior to tbe departure of the first boat Many mure were doubtl^-j suld ou board th-a boat, aud for tho afternoon trip.

The injured man was ?ery unwell this morning, and was unable t> aiscnoe the assaulting party. Disorderly ? \esterday, a fight occurred n Tweluh, near Q street, between a number of ycu: g men who met at that spot The dis graceful scene attracted a large number of citizen* to that neighborhood.

What is io the wind ? A Pbikteh i* a Scrap* ?The St. Louis Republican tolla a atory of a printer, well known to the oraft, who wae recently found "locked up" in the apartments of a lady, at one of the hotels in that city. The lady hid a husband, who, suspecting the "devil'' was "subbing'' at his "case," broke into the room, where ha was furnished with a "proof' of their guilt. Tba printer, however, had a "shooting stick," one barrel of which he dis charged at the enregad husband, and thpn fled. The "leaded matter," fortunately, did no injury to the "form" of the husband, who, after giving 'chase" for a short distance, re turned to his room, satisfied that his domestic happiness was knocked into "pi." The oraft generally consider it "matter' that cannot be ? justified," and that the guilty fellow ought to "distribute" himself as wide as possible.
