EVENING STAR. ?.nr,AL INTELLIGENCE. Rbttrn to Wim? Qtabtbbs ?There are certain beings who endeavor to act the part of trae philosophers by making 44 a rirtus of a necessity " Too poor to keep house, and not sufficiently well off in cnh to quarter at * regular boarding bouse?and not postering such a respectability of appearance as would ccminand an invitation to dinner !?they "live by tbeir wita," and, in*ead of Anding fault with their food, are glad to procure merely the means of subsistence from any source whatsoever. They da not turn up their noses at a smoked chicken or an overdone potato! In the rammer time, some of these persons, for the benefit of tbeir health, visit the coun try?the pure air and the fresh fruits being among the rwTal attractions. They make their beds in clover-fields or in baruhouses. and have the happiness to be aroused from tbeir slumbers by ths music of birds?thus blend ing the rapport of the animal with the love of the haraaneous outpourings of the feathered chorister!. The few who remain in the city, less fond of nature's orchestral arrangements, and being less poetic, resort to the lumber yards, converting the premises into huge chambers, and during tne day take a sitstd in the market-house or on some retired hilN side Let politicians wrangle, and merchants engage in stimulatiag traffic, these loafers are indifferent They will live in Issiness, and nobody oan reform tbem from the errors of their ways Since tbe coming of eool weather, we notice that a Dumber of the ruralixers have returned to this city, and the first thing they did wa4 to call at the watch-house, where they have a kind of prescriptive right to the cells. There they obtain lodgings without expense, but gratuitous breakfast is not included in the rules of that establishment! And here we may say, for the benefit of similar character! yet abroad, that the stove has been put up and the apartments comfortably heated. A visit to tbe watch-house, anv morning^ will afford an opportunity to see the descrip tion of persons who resort thither for theii night's repose. ?? National Theatre?Tbe final concert of Strakosch'scompany transpires to-night, when Parodi?splendid, fascinating, whose name is the synonyme of enjoyment, and whose ores* enee is redolent of toe spirit of melody?sings, a* the promiuest brilliant amongst a selection of vocal gems, oar soul stirring national song, " The Star Spangled Banner," an effort whiehi we gather from our exchanges throughout th# country, has. wherever sang, evoked tho un? mistakable applause of active sympathy. Ti? berini, of whom a New York paper says, " hS has no equal in the eoncertgroom," announces several of tbe leading arias Trom the most p pular operas Bernardi, Strakosch, xnd brilliant little Pan! Jullien, present other adieus in a programme which cannot fail of being remembered with abiding delight. Assault and Battsry with Intbmt t| Kill?Yesterday, Officer Ross arrested two colored individuals. Win Chase and Jame| Garner on the charge of assault and battorji with intent to kill Puilip llughes They werf taken before Justice 11 ollingshead, who sent them to iail for trial, in two oases each, at the December term of the Criminal Court. It appears that a number of colored person! have formed an association for the purpose of 41 sitting up with the body'' wheo any of theif acquaintances have died, llughes's wife died, and this committee went to the wake. In the course of the Dight, the watchers be? came rather too noisy, and Hughes undertook to dismiss them, when the attack wa9 mads on him. and his jaw broken in two places/ The chairman of the committee, or the " Capi tain," as they call him, was not in a conditio* 11 restrain them. SERENADE!??OSD, BAD, AND INDIFFERENT. Many of our love-strickea musical amateur! have availed themselves of the fiue nights, lately, to compliment their fair acquaintances by serenades. Some of these achievements have been performed in creditable style, but in too many instances, alas! the music ha! been of that description which puts the teeth on edge, startles the nervous, sets dogs te barking and children to crying, causes ths neighbors to call the watch and kick up a row generally ! We hear that in one instance ths berenaded parties have expressed a particular desire thst the serenade should not be re* peated They consider ths music a most grafc? ifying compliment and a treat of a high or? der, but in future would prefer to take ths will for the deed, as there is a sick child it the house. ?-? Pink Coaklby, a bla^k man, seems deter* mined to do bis part toward supplying the po* lice with business No sooner out of a scrape* or out of jail, than he again conducts himself in such a way as to oocasion a constabulary visitation, and t return to that blue-washed institution, from tbe windows of which a fins view is obtained of the scenery and improve* ments in that neighborhood This morning Pink amused himself by assaulting and bat tering somebody. He is not a tetotaler. that ! certain. Officer Cooper arrested him, and hs was committed to jail by justice Donn An' other policeman was at the time waiting to arrest Pink, in case be had been dismissed from the former chaage. , Fob Requisition.?The colored man Geo. Lee, who was committed to jail for a bearing by Justice Donu, was brought out for triad yesterday, and it was shown that he had beea concerned in the robbery of a gentleman ia Montgomery county, Maryland, where he ob? taioed *185 and a silver watch About ninety four dollars were recovered, he having dis posed of the remainder Lee was committed to await a requisition from the Governor of Maryland. - Cob ?*cr s Isqubst ?Yesterday afternoon an ioquert held iu a house near the canal be* tween Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets west, over the body ot a colored man named John Harris who died suddenly yesterday. It was shown that be had been subject to hemorrhage of the lung?, and from the appearance of ths body it was believed that was tho cause rf death, and tbe jury returned a verdict accords ingly. Dan Rice s obbat siow will exhibit in this city to morrow and Saturday?for these two days only.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. GBonaBTCWft, Sept. 25,1856. Quite an extensive revival of religion has been going on in the Methodist church atTen allytown under the pastoral charge of the Rev. Mr. (Jotwalt. The altar is nightly thronged with soekersof religion, and the num ber of converts have been quite numerous. Mr. Wm. Holding, a very respectable atd aged citisen of our city, and well known throughout the District, died yesterday morn in^nf an attack of paralysis. Frust in considerable quantities made its appearance this morning in and round about our citj. We have never, in all our experience, seen so much betting upon elections as there is now going on Almost every knowing one you meet with, of all parties, seems to have some thing to risk upon the result, or upon some particular State. The Democrats have been betting freely upon Maryland?that Fillmore will not carry four States, and against large odds upon the final result. Mr. Joseph F. Birch had both of his hands badly burned last night, while saving one of his children from injury by fire. A lamp had been oarelessly left sitting upon the floor, and as the child was passing by it, the flame was communicated to its outer clothing. Fortu nately, however, its dangerous situation was discovered by Mr. B to save it from any in jury The flour market continues rather inactive. There seems to be hut little speculative de mand.
