EVENING STAR. ' local intelligence. Bn.4t?> or Alderue.v?The Board met at the u-ual hour, yesterday afternoon, eight members present. In the temporary absence of the President. (Mr. Clark,) the Board w;is called to order by the Vice President, (Mr. Pearson ) The fallowing communication was received from the Major: {ientlrm'n : The melancholy news ha* reached this city announcing the death of the lion James Meacham, of Vermont, and I deem It a duty to the memory of the deceased to communicate tho fact to you, because be baa ever proved himself a warm friend of our city. Mr Meacham was, during the session of "Cnrgress Isst past, the chairman of the Committee on the District of Columbia, and in that capacity exhibited nn enlarged and philosophic mind, which was particular dis played in the unusual interest be manifested , in our public school ayttem and the efforts he made to enlarge iuemeans cf usefulness I have thought it eminently proper that the corporate authorities cf Washington should have some opportunity presented to thciu of expressing their sense of the great lo?s our city has sustained in the demise of this good and truly great man. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, W B Maori dek The communication was referred to a spccial committee consisting of Messrs. Smith, Kufl and Moore. Bills for the relief of Peter Little, Robert Downing, and John Hammond were parsed. Mr Huff, from school committee, presented a new bill (to supply the place of the one vetoed by tbe Mayor) in relation to the ap pointment of sub assistant teachers of the public schools, and to equalize tho salaries of teachors in the male primary school?; which was pamd. A bill was passed appropriating f.>r paying the expenses of the special election in the Sixth Ward. Mr. Smith introduced a resolution allowing W C Manaban the use of the Centre Market space for a circus company; adopted. A bill making an appropriation for the re lief of Henrietta Shryer pissed; also a bill for the relief of Joseph Ratcliffc. Mr Mooro called up the general appropria tion bill- Mr M addresseuthe B >ard at some Icrgth. coai^ndiijg that tho rejection of a nom inee of the Mayor by the Board of AlJormen did rot oat off the salary of such nominee, and fortified his positions by citing from the de ci.-ions of the m*st eminent judicial authorities Mr- M proceeded to define what constituted a session of tbe Councils and what a recess i'wo years ai?o, ho said, nominations were male by Mr. f >wers which were rejected by the Board, were renominated by M.iyor T , and fii.ally confirmed by the Beard ; and then no objection was made to payiiig tbe salaries He concluded by expressing tho opinion that the M-iyor bad not acted beyond law and pre cident. Mr Busey followed, arguing that tbe ad journment of tho Board from one week to another did not constitute a recess. Accord ing to the interpretation of tbe gentleman (Mr M>ore) tbe rejecting power ?>f the Board was perfectly nugatory it the Mayor could con tinue a rejected nominee in office Mr Busey offered resolutions of inquiry ad dressed to the Corporation Attorney, as t>> what constitute an officer of the Corporation' Whether the interval between the regular meetings on each Monday, after tbe 4th Mon day in June annually, authorized by a law of tbe Corporation, constitutes a recess in tho sense in whi/n it is employed in the charter, and if so, does not any office which may be fi.ltd by the appointment of the Mayor during such re ess *? unul the end of tho ensuing session become vacant unless such appoint ment shall be nominated to the Board of Al dermen 14 at the then ensuing session," and if the offi;e thus becomes vacant can it agaio be filled without the consent of the B^ard of Al dermen ' In the event of a nomination by the M^jor, ?nd the rejection of the same by the Board of Aldermei, and a Repetition of the s.itne from week to week is the Corpora tion bound for the payment of tbe salary to s.?id nominee ? Does a nomination by tbe Mayor entitle any person to the salary affixe 1 to the office to which he may be nominated ' Tae resolutions of inquiry, alter some de bate, were adopted. Resolutions in relation to the death of Hon J icies Meacham were receive! from the lower Board and adopted JOIST MClTlXa. The two Boards now ao.-e nbltd in joint meeting for the election of Notice Magistrates. Mr Bu?ey oficred the following resolution, which was adapted: R*tolvtJ, That in tbe opinion of the joint meeting any Justice of the Peace who may be elected to ;hc < ffice of Police Magistrate by the Board of Aldermen and Common Council in joint meeting assembled, becomes incompe tent t<> discharge tbe duties of the office of Pc? lice M?gistr*te at the expiration of his com mission as a Justice of the Peace, unless it shall have been renewed prior to or at tLe time of iu expiration, ai.d that to render him again competent to discharge tbe duties of the office of Poiice M tgialiate ho must be re-elect ed by the Board of Aldfermen and Common Council in j int meetiog assembled. The ballot for Pa lice Magistrate in the First distiict having been tiiken, it was announced by the tellers (Messrs Busey and Jefferson) that Samuel Drury had received 15 voles, J->hn Jones 4, blank 7; and S.<muel Drury was accordingly declared elected In tne Sec-nu district, Paul Stevens, jr., received 16 votes, aod John D.

A Libel Scit ?We learn that a warrant was is-utd, yes??rlay, by Justice Qoddard, against Mcssis Butll A Blanch&rd, charging tbe? w?tb libe.mg Marshal J D. Hoover in a ttiijpLlet publirncd by them headed " The il.ir g of Thorn a* Keating - An Address from tie Irubaien of Washington city to the Cii *er? ot the United btate* " The pamphlet Marshal Hoover with having p icked a jury in the Herbert case favorable to the I?i- utr Mr Buc-1! appeared before Juslice '?

The Coart met at the usual hour this morn ing, and the trial of Sullivan, charged with the murder of Kohrman, was resumed. The District Attorney opened for the United State?, and was fallowed by Mr Martin for the dcfence Dr. Johnson Eliot testiSed to having exam ined the body of Kohrman at Beckert's, near the Park, on the 5ih of July ; he had found a wotiT-.d on the back of deceased made by some sharp instrument, which had ovidently pro duced death in a short time ; witness described the direction and appoarance of the wound ; deceased wua a medium oiied man, age about 35 years. A. E. L. Keese testified to bearing a cry of murder at the affray where Kohrman was killed, and that on going to stop the fighting he saw something glitter which ho took to be a knife; duponeut went to the bar room to get a pistol, and on his way thither, looking side ways, saw Sullivan')) arm give Kohrman a thrust; thought it was Sullivan's arm which gave the thrust from the clothes worn by Sul livan; saw no knife At that time Upon tho conclusion of Mr. Keese's testi mony 3. lleismau was called to the stand, but being unable to give hut evidence in English an interpreter was ndt for, and the Court took a recess After the recess this witness was examine 1 through an interpreter, and was on the stand as our report closed. National Thkatrk.?Thore was a large gathering last night of our theatre-going peo- 1 pie to welcome the return of the Florence? from their triumphant career on the other sido of the Atlantic It too often happens that American actors of talont are not recog nized at their true value at homo until they receive the stamp of Old World approbation ; hut this cannot bo said in viow of the enthu siastic reception now given to Mr. and Mr? Florence, since every body knows that they were universal favorites throughout our wide Union prior to their departure for Europe. However, considering the severe ordeal American actors are oompelled to p?ss before English audiences, and in running the gaunt jet of criticism no way? kindly predisposed towards American talent, It is naturally a matter of pride to tho friends of Mr. and Mrs. Florcnca that they have not only disarmed criticism, but oompelled tho warmest admira tion while ou the London boards and wherever they appeared during thnir tour Th* bill offered by them to-night Is a re markable rich one, as will be seen by the ad vertisement in another column, and cannot F-iil to give satisfaction. Mst.ancholy Accipest - Aboutfivo o'clock in Sunday afternoon, a youth named John Tuoll was drowned whilo crossing the Eastern Branch, opposite the Navy Yard Tuell, with uther boys in a boat, was sitting in the stern iti Jhe boat, and falling in the water back wards is supposed to bn*e got entangled in the prasa at the bottom of tho river, as he did not rise to the surface again, and as the body has not yet been recovered. Store Ereakimg ?On Sunday night the grocery store of Mr. R. Knight, in the Sev enth Ward, was entered and robbed of money and some ?oods; and last night tbe store of Mr John Hickey, on Seventh street, was robbed of various articles The robbery of Mr Knight's store was perpetrated, it is 'up posed, by boys, and that upon Mr. Hhkey * -tore by a colored man. None of the thieves have been arrested. As Omission ?An error crept into tbe com plimentary card of C"nim >d^re Forrest, from the heads of the different departments of the Washington Naw Yard, recently published in the Star We refer to the omission of the name of our fellow-citixen, Mr. Theodore Frcibus, who, having been c "tiled on to that cud. t inned it. The mistake occurred ere it reached our hand and was evidently the result only of an error in copying tho original paper. Pearce Uadlet, arrested on charge of as saulting and beating James Hiser on Sunday night, was dismissed yosterday, the evidence being insufficient to oonvict him. iiiser is improving. ? The examination into the firemen's late difficulties took place yesterday afternoon at the Mayor's office, but no decision was ren dered, we believe, by the Mayor.
