The Georgetown College Cadets at the Wbite llot'SE ?Tho Cadets on the occasion of their late parade in this city visited the ex ecutive mansion, where they had an interest ing interview with President Pierce. The Ca dets having formed in single column in the rast room, the captain of the company, Cbas. B Kenney of Pittsburg. Pa , addressed the President in eloquent terms commencing a3 follow* Mr. President: On the part of the George town College Cadets and the noble insti ution which they represent here, in this chamber, the ?cere of so many exhibitions of American feeling and of American patriotism, hallowed too by the constant presence of America's no blest pride, I tender you the assurance of our earnest regard aud esteem My own emotions at this moment, standing in the presence of him wh<>m from car mother's knee we arc tinght to regard with rcverenco and awe, wouli indeed silence my tongue, had I not an honorable, a high and sacred duty to perform When an institution which some of the most brilliant scholars in our country, tho most pro found philosophers and sagest statesmen are pr-<ud to call their " Alma Mater," has select ed evet to unworthy a representative of her sentiments, be is at once entitled to your kind attention, he spcak3 what even the noblest ruler if men might be proud to hear and to deserve?the commendations of tho good. You here before you hearts young and ardent, glowing with the purest love of their country; congregated, too, from the very ex treiuitiei <f this mighty, indissoluble, Union, a communion of States in tho communion of their children, from the frowning forests of Maine to the glittering soil of California, tho " Sjhj Magna Altera Roma," all in ono mmd. and with voice testifying their affec tion for yourself, and their admiration of the manner in which you have discharged tte awful duties of your offi *e. We are not sol diers by profession ; but we find in the exer cise of the sjldier an agreeable ^and prohta- ' ble amusement, and to this we are the more incited when we reflect that the brightest, the noblest names that adorn the pages of our country's history, have been alike distin guished in the cabinet and in the field. But in tho names of all those you see around you, and in the narno of that venerable institution which we love, wnile we express our high ap preciation of your conduct as a statesman, wo cannot omit tne earnest mention of our thanks, deep and sincere, for the particular interest you have manifested in the A/m>t muter of our choice Alluding gracefully to the eminent public services of the President in piloting the ship of stato eu<*essfully through the furious po litical tempests which lately beset her, he cl )#ei as f>llows : 41 In the name of our company, then, I thank you for the truly Amorioan and consti tutional manner in which you have adminis tered justice to all ; I thank you in the naine of the Faculty of Georgetown College, who know h-.w to cppreciate worth and pay a will ing tribute to virtue; I thank you in the Dime of all the young and glowing hearts you :ee arouud you, in which the memory of this day will be fresh as now when yuu, per haps. will have been called to a higher and purer reward for your generous and patriotic labors ; I thank you in the name ot uiy na tive. noble Keystone Stat?, the bulwark of a nation s safety and her hopes, that has stamped the seal of her approbation upon your public acts with more than two hundred and thirty thousand of her freemen's votes: I thank j' u in the name of every true-hearted Amer ican eitizen who cherishes tho union and pros perity of uur eoax'in country. And when > rj will have retired from the glory and carcs tf so mighty a G -vert;meet?when, amid ihe beauty and grandeur of naturo which make the Grauits State tho '* Switzerland" of Amer ica, your uuirauimtied spirit will find new and purer springs of pleasuro and delight? oh ' remember still the depth and ein:criiy of our regard, remember that you have a monu ment more enduring than brass, xu-ro lasting th ?n marble, in tho undjiog, eternal grati tuJe of y-.ur countrymen." Upoa the conclusion of Mr. Kenny's re marks, tho President replied, happily and np j ropriately, to the effect that though the Ca dets represented d.fferent sections of country, they were still united in feeling, that no geo graphical lines could divide the interests and hearts of Americans. No blow could be struck at one section of the country, without injuring the section from whieh it originated. lie complimented the company cn their ap pearance, and referred to the benefits of citi zen soldiery; of the prodigies of valor per formed by volunteers on the Celds of Mexico, all of which resulted from the habitual use of arm?. In concluding, the Presi lent -poke in terms cf high regard A the institution represented by the Cadets, and of its honored President On leaving the White House, the ('adets proceeded to the Washington Seminary, where they partook oi a conation prepared by Gau tier Speeches were made and sentiment* were offered by Messrs. Cboi:e of S Carolina, 0 Flynn of Michigan, Lancaster of Pa , iiill of Maryland, and Xeale of Md. At about half past 1 the Cadets started from thn Seminary on the r march homeward, de lighted with their conplimcn'.ary and hospi tab'emeptnns The Clbci it Court jecterday had before it a case of considerable interest, us involving the legality of the principle upon which build ing associations are for the most part founded. It came up on a prayer for an injunction to restrain the Potomac Building Association of this city from selling the house of John John son for a failure to comply with the regula tions of said association, of which he is a mem ber The sale is resisted on tho ground that the proceedings under which the association d spenses its accommodations are usurious, to whkh it is replied, on the other hand, that the biddings are Lvt of tho nature of loans, but are partnership transactions The caso is still before the Court ?Intelligmcer. CmcciT Cr-t ET.?Yesterday, the Court was engaged in the hearing of a case under the fugitive slave law. the first tried in this Court. A slave ran away fr in Virginia and was taken here, and wa- claimed under the law by K. W. iianter. who produced certificates ? f his right fr m a Court in Virginia. After hearing the evidence, and tne arguments of Mr Maury for the claimant, and C. S Wal lach for defendant, tho Court decided that under tne law the certificates of the Courts in Virginia were sufficient, aud it was not for tnis Court to g<? behind those certificates t) i' te.re into the freedom of the defendant, lie clave was re uandsd to the claimant A9.iai lts, Ae ?Jameo Wallan was arrested v*st*rday for assaulting and beating Thomas Wtlel TLe case was laid befoie Justice l>oun who, in consequence ot the inability of the pr seeutiug witness to appear, held the accused t > security for a further hearing. Jeremiah Connell was also arrested by Officer Yeatman for an assault and battery on Mi chael Cr nin, and Edward Fitzgeral for threat* of violence ; both were held to security for peace by Justice Donn The last mentioned cases grew out of a raffle for a stoic. A IisALTiriL 1mstelme>'t.?One of the fine*; toned and must exqaisitely finished Piano- we ever had the goou fortune to behold if now to be seen at M^tzorott's music store.

Fike Alarm.?Last night, about twelve o clock, an ulars uf lire was caused by the "ppearanea of a light in tLe direction of the Potomac ri*er. The alarui w is Bounded, but w is not generally regarded by the firemen, who looked upon it as a mischievous trick. Thalberq'b Concerts ?By the advertise ment in another column it ^1 be seen tbat this, perhaps the greatest offiiving pianists, who hu been electrifying the musical circles of New York and Philadelphia, will give two grand concerts in this ciiy on Tuesday and Saturday evenings, December 16th and 20th. Tbe Philadelphia North American says ' " The immense throngs of the best people in the city, which have rushed te his ooncerts, hare gone there to listen to playing which they know to be unequalled. Put at the same time time it would be unjust not to attribute a por tion of the suocess ot these conoerts lo the real ly brilliant vocalism of the y<">ung American prima, Madame De Wilhorst." National Theater ?Mr E Booth appears to night as Brutus, in Howard Payne's ster ling tragedy of that name. Mr. S. E. Brown takes the part of Titus, F. Hamilton that of Sextus, 11 A.

The performances conclude with a laugbablo farce To morrow night, the complimentary bene* fit to Mr Bftuth takes place Criminal Court.?The following cases were disposed of in this court yesterday : James Hays, colored, assault: guilty?sentenced to two months in jail and fined $1.

Centre Market.?The unfavorable state of the weather prevented the attendance of m?ny dealers in the principal market, and the supply wad not as plentiful as usual. The new pavement on the east front of the market has been finished, and the repair ol that on tho north front is in progress. Suppbrt Places ?Ice formed on the side walks last night, ar.d this mcrning several aged persons fell upon it while going to or from the market, if citizens would take seasonable precautions to remove ice on the pavements in front of their houses, many serious accidents might bo prevented during the winter.

Grace Church Fair ?In planning your evening's amusement don't forget this most agreeable resort. That was a superb " hop" at Munder's Academy last night.

Georgetown, Dec. 11, 1856. From all that wo can lcain, tho full opinion of Attorney Genoral Curbing upon the merits of tho poll tax and suffrage bill, is now in tfc? hands of tbe special committee of the Council to whom the wholo subject was referred sev eral weeks since, anl final action upon the subject will doubtless bo tak*u by tho Coun cils to morrow evening. It is more than likely that an ordinance will ho passed providing for the establishment of two or more election precincts, and for submitting tho remaiivng portions of the act of Congress to the voters of tho town for their decision at tho next gen eral election. The attention of the citizens of tho eastoru part of our city is called to the Eastern market of Mr Donaldson, advertised in another column.

The cold, howover, has considerably moderated, and hopes arc entertained that navigation upon the river and canal will con tinue open for some time to come.
