LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. 6r*DAT at tii Pshitsstubt ?We were present on Sunday last, at a religious servioe of much interest, being nothing less than that held on each Sabbath at the chapel of the penitentiary for the benefltof the convicts. On entering the ehapel shortly before 10 o'clock, a. m , we found the male prisoner? gathered at the penitentiary library for the purpose of exchanging the books taken oat the previous Sabbath for others. These books, we learn from Mr. Thornley, are sought for with great eagerce&a by the convicts, and indeed the worn and thumbed condition of the volumes show . that they have been in constant use. Wo trust that the recommendation of the Warden (in bis report) for the expenditure of a few hun dred dollars for the purchase of additional books will be earned out. As the convicts re ceived their books they retired to their seats, and each was soon busy with his volume ; the guard mounted upon a raised seat, meantime keeping supervision over them with a watch ful eye The male prisoners, black and white, were separated right and left, and the female pris oners were hidden from view by a cloth screen. TMs screen seems of doubtful utility, serving it would appear only to pique feminine cu riosity, as it has been pierced with holes in numerable by fair fingernails, to enable their owters to solace themselves with an occasional peep at the lords of creation. The services were commenced with prayer by the chaplain of the institution, Rev. R R. Richards, whhh was followed by a hymn sung?and well sung by the convict choir. The singing was led and mainly sustained by colored convicts, who entered upon the ser vices with the same zealous unction which usually characterises the religious exercises of colorad congregations. The white convicts on the other side of the aisle preserved external decorum, but exhib ited at the same time a callous apathy. A portion of scripture was next read which was followed by another hymn The sermon was delivered by Rev. J. E. Parker, of the Michigan (Methodist) Confer ference, and was a plain practical teaohing; well adapted to the comprehension of the au dien-e The text was from the parable of tha rich man? 12th chapter of Lake, 16th verse. The three points commented upon by the preachcr were?1st. Mags discontentment with his position in life ; 21 The folly of t ie rceans adopted by him to better his condition ; 3d The disappointments resulting therefrom. A more attentive congregation we never saw. To be sure there were no distractions in the shape of late comers, operatic singers or new bonnets ; almost perfect silence reigned, and the gTim uniformity of the parti-colored pris on dress afforded nothing for the eye to dwell upon. After the sermon the convicts spent some time in sieging, and were then drawn into line and marched to their dinner. The meal on this occasion consisted of bread, boiled beets, corned beef, and black tea. The beets wore grown upjQ the grounds of the penitentiary, And are substituted occasionally as a change of diet from the usual allowance of potatoes Dinner over, the prisoners were drawn up into line again ; after which the guards passed down the ranks, passing their hand.: rapidly over the person of each convict to ascertain if any weapons were concealed upon them. This done, the prisoners were marohed to their cells and locked in for the day. A tremendous roaring, jarring and banging stunned the looker-on, for a season, while the convicts were tramping along the wooden gal leries. followed by the guards locking and barring the cell doors with a crash Then again all was silent; and on peering into the dusky recesses ot the cells the prisoners were *een reclining on their cots, examining the books procured from the library One convict alone was confined to bis bed through irdifposition, and the physician seemed ioubttul if be were aot aharaming ill ness C <nsidering the locality of the peni tentiary the good health of the convicts for the year past is remarkable. Oar visit confirmed us in the opinion ex pressed cn another occasion, that the prisoners are attended to by the officers with all care and humanity consistent with security and the requirements of the law. Hotel Robbbribs ?The recent robbery of one or two guests in a Washington hotel re minds uj of the duty of cautioning hotel boarders everywhere of the necessity of com plying with the now invariable rule of all sacli establishments, as well as the law, which makes their proprietors responsible for no valuables stolsa, unless the regulation of the hoase in that connection has been strictly complied with. That regulation notifies the guest that to fix such responsibility on the proprietor, he must deposit in the office all viluables which, left unguarded, will be likely to tempt hotel thieves to commit bur glaries or larcenies. Experienced hotel thieves will enter a locked room, open a locked trunk and be off in safety, in two minutes at most. Not one in twenty suoh robbers are caught, and not once in a hundred times are valuables apirited away by them recovered So long as hotel guests will leave valuables in trunks, in defiance to proprietors' printed notices to the contrary, just so long will the former be heavy losers by their want of due caution The fault by no means lies with the hotels, but alone with their careless >>t obstinate guests.

Officers May and Deggea undertook to arrest a gaog of persons for disorderly conduct in the First Ward. The officers had to contend against the crowd, and, in order to secure the prison ers, called on " all good eituens" to assist them- Tbe bystanders seemed to appreciate that such u *it!e did not apply to them, and not only refused to aid the officers in the dis charge of their duties, but used language tending t? excite the prisoners Officer May bad his coat torn off, but succeeded in arrest ing D'jck D rsett, and Officer Degges secured Coarles Garcia. They gave security for a further hoaring. The refusal of the citizens will be laid before the Grand Jury.
