EVENING STAR. ~LQCAL intelligence. I Tib Mo.nthlt Niitiio of the Teaohers' Association took place on Saturday at- the Smithsonian Inetitutioo. The attecdance of teachers, public and private and of both sexes, waa full- The duties of the chair were ably discharged by the Preaident of the Associa tion After the reading of the minutea bj the Secretary, a aeriea of questions for diaeoaaion, offered at the prior meeting, were taken up, spoken to, and disposed of. Busmen next in order waa an essay on introducing the ?tudy of the Constitution and Laws of the United Stated into common achoola. It waa a consid erably long and carefully prepared paper, by Mr S. Y. AtLee. exhibiting much research and meritorious industry It gave rise to several highly interesting speeches from dif ferent members, wherein more than one of the problems anxiously asking solution from our family, city, State and General Governments were stated end discussed. It seemed to be the prevailing idea that the mere learning of the provisions of the Conatitution by youth is insufficient to remedy their fast increasing dis orderliness and iosubordinatior, especially in the larger towns and cities. But one method that could be depended on for insuring a sen sibly general compliance with the require menta of positive law and duty to country ap peared to be left; that is to say, the cultivation of the moral serse, the allegiance to God, and to country and law through Him Lack of reverence is the glaring evil with our youth; they praetically act as if nothing ia greater, wiser, or better than themselves. They show little or no sens* of responsibility, and rush at an immature age into all the indulgences granted in other towns and oountries only to mature years. By some of the speakers it seemed to be thought that the boys were so bad because they had bad examples in the men?not only the men in ordinary walka of life, tut legislators, councillors, and states men. No matter what the cause or what the remedy of the evils complained of, the speak ers all yeemed to acknowledge their existence and deeply to deplore them. A vote of thanks was riven to Mr. AtLee for his able addreaa.? bitifligmeur. ?? A CarTURB.?Saturday night, the auxiliary guirds of the F.fth Ward beats made a de scent ui*>n a house kept by Kobert Cross, where Cross and a crowd of colored per* ns wero found gambling When the guards made the discovery one of thera was sent to call in tha guards of the adjoining beat, while an other watched the house. When they all bad arrived they consulted about a plan to get in without giving the alarm to those inside. Tho officer who had been watching the hcuse uad noticed a large dog on the premises, and Le, a . ling upon the hint, managed to get up a very tolerable imitation of the pawing cf a dog upon the door. One of the eolored p?-r sins inside inquired " Who's dat scratching" Cross replied, u It's the dog ; let him in." A young man, named R. Pumpbrey, opened the door, and thereupon all the guards walked in. Crass extinguished the light and escapcd. Pumphrey waa caught outside by a gentleman who happened near by. Tbe others were taken in the house, and confined in the guard bouse until yesterday morning, when./hey were disposed of according to law. Horse Thief Arrested ?A few nights zioee Mr Archibald White, residing in the vi cinity of this city, had a valuable horse taken trom his stable. From some circumstances Mr. While suspected that the thief would take tne horse to Baltimore for sale, and accord ingly on Saturday last he visited tbat city and engaged the services of officers Pierson and McKinley who commenced a search and short ly discovered the horse in the possession of a gentleman in Old Town, who bad purchased him for the sum of $140, and who gave the of Seers such a description of the party who sold him the horse as enabled them to trace him to a groggery upon tbe Point, where he was spending toe proceeds of the sale in a drinking frcli'- All but *3 of the amount was recovered upf'C the person of this man. who when taken before Justice Durham gave his name as Jacob Bierbaugb. He c ^nfessud the theft, and ctate 1 as a provocation that Mr. White had refused to trust him for three bu.-hcls of wheat Jus ti:e Durham committed h m t" await the action of the authorities of this District. ?* l\?wELCO*m Visitors ?Saturday morniDg a number of very fashionably dressed young men were noticed walking through the Centre 31arket, displaying their gold chains pins and nogs in a manner that attracted universal at tention. Frequent inquiries were made as to their names and residences, but no satisfac tory ar.swer could be given until a delegation of the city police was observed following close on their heels. It was then whispered that they were ?? swells" from Philadelphia, on tbe lookout for' green uns." They have not been heard of since Saturday afternoon, when, it is supposed. they left the city to keep out of the reach of our police. Serious Affair?Friday night, a Mr. Jas. Scrivener had a leg broken by falling from the steps of a bouse in the Second Ward. He had been drinking, and stopped at tbe house to light a cigar, when he was seised by a man and thrown from the steps. The fractured limb was set, and he was doing as well as could be expected until last night, when he was at tagged with delirium, and became so vi olent that it was necessary to call in the Guards '?n tbat beat to prevent his doing damage to himself Tbey secured him, and have, by tares, remained with him until this morning, f^rivener's friends are arranging to remove him to the infirmary. Pr >faeity 15 tbe Strbet. ? Yesterday e?ec:nj. a colored woman created considera ble disturbance in tbe Second Ward by using rn st profane an l indecent language. Watch inin Norwood arrested her, and several colored persons who were near volunteered to become witnesses against her. When tbey arrived at the guarl hou-'e Mr. Norwood arrested all of them and put all in tbn cells, charging them with the Mmt offence, it appearing that they had been guilty of the same disorderly and ir. it* ent behavior. They were retained till this morning, and disposed of by the police magistrate officiating. Political Discussion at Colbsvillb.? The discussion, on Saturday, at Colesrille, be tween Messrs Cluskey and McCutehen, of this city, drew together a large assemblage at that point. The debate was opened by Mr. Clus key, who occupied three quarters of an hour, and was followed by Mr. McCutcben, who 'poke for the same length of time Mr. Clus key agiln took the stand, and treated Fill morei?m to such a mauling that Mr. McCut en evidently gave the cause up as "past I raying for." and did not attempt a reply. A New Coach Factory ?Tbe new coach making establishment of Mr. Thos. I.

Doulin and Matthew Wilson discovered a beautiful lake, five and one half miles in circumference, in Sibley county, township 14. On Saturday Oct. 4, a large number of persons eollected to gether and gave the lake the name of " Lako Washington." Shocking Occurrescb.?The Wolfborougb (N U ) Pioneer says that on Thursday night a Mrs. Fulton, who is said to be deranged, drowned ber little girl, about one year old, iu a small stream, putting a rock upon the body to keep it under. She then went to a neigh bor's Douae, told the family what she had doae, and requested them to go and take the body out lest the face might be disfigured by lying in the water. A Pbbilocs Rit>k ?A journeyman hatter, residing about half a mim ti m Plainfield, while going lrom that place to his home, on Saturday night, being on the track at the time an extra coal train was going up the Central railroad, was caught by the cow-catcher, and after several unsuccessful attempts to not it y the engineer of bis whereabouts, ne arrived in Somerville He kept his courage up with the idea that the train would stop at some inter mediate station, but it being merely a conl train he was obliged to go all the way through. His leg was broken, and it is a miracle that he was not instantly killed.? Trenton (N. ./.) American. Incident at a Camp Meeting.?One aftrr noon, during " reliai >us services," and while a " preacher was in fall blast." in the middle of an exhortation, a pious looking ''brother" ?'epped up to the ''stand" orpulpit, and after telling the.preacher to " hold up" for a mo ment, made the following announcement, in a clear, ringing tone, but with the usual Meth od istie a 1 twang: "Sister Stevens ia in tent No 49 ; and if brother Roberts ia on the ground she wants the key of her trunk!" Brother Roberts immediately arose and proceeded to the tent of sister Stevens and the preacher re sumed his exhortations as if nothing unusual had happened. Yankee Locomotion.?The London Times, in an articlc on " Yankee Locomotion," says : Whenever you see him, the Yankee, he is going over ground as fast as he can And whatever the motion be. whether pleasure or profit, it is the same. In Europe, he is a pale and breathless sightseer, always in rapid transition, as if a ghost were pursuing him, insatiably accumulating etages, as if his life depended on the sum total at the end of the week.
