FVJRNTNO ST ATT LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Mertimt; of Solmbrs?A**ctJ*>T* or Talli"i kahh, Ac ?At the re<*ent meeting of the Association of the Soldier* of IS! 2 for the District of Colombia, a letter was presented \>y Capt De la Roche, which vu written by the celebrated M Tallerand, representing himself as a store-keeper while located in the Vetted Elates. Dr Caldwell remarked: Mr. President, (Col Seaton, preaident of the aasodatlon, in the chair,] the mention of the name of Talley, rand reminda me of an aaecdote of that cele brated man. which, as it would apply to this association, I will relate. It is this : When Karl <*rey was Prime Minister of England. Talleyrand was the representative of France at that Coort On o*c occasion be predicted that the then ministry of England wonld not live long. When the reason for this pragmat ical prediction was demanded of the wiley and witty ronrtier, he replied?" It was because it wss so 'rn'v-headed." A large majority of the soldiers of 1812 have pas.-ed away, and the rest have nearly rearhed that age intim nt?d in the Scriptures a? the portion of life allowed to roan, seventy years ) A few more years and none of them will be left PTLreaam.?Quite alarge amount of build* mg materials have been stolen from new building* in parts of the city during this win* t#r. It is a game that has been practised a long time by juvenile thieves in the employ of elder ones The materials are generally sto len is parcels ao small that the punishment for the offence, when the parties are taken, is very light, and frequently they are permitted to escape a trial at court on account of their youth. There should be a place suitable for the correction of these apprentices in crime. Arr**tep.?This morning, officers William son and Fanning arrested three colored boys William Laney, Wm. Woodley, and Charles Brown?for breaking into t*ie store of Mrs Davey, corner of Fourteenth and F streets, on Friday night last, and stealing a lot of fancy articles, magical instruments, toys, Ac. They were taken before Justice Stevens, where the two first (being slaves) were hell for their owners, and Brown (being a free negro) was committed to jail for court. A portion of the goods was recover*!. Teeth.? All teeth made upon metallic plates are woll known to be injurious to the system They have been the cause of nervous irritability, paralysis, soreness of the throat, neuralgic pains, and dyspepsia But for teeth entirely free from these effects, and per fect in all and evcrv re'prct, Loomi?'s irn rrcved sets, made wholly of pure and in.Ie t>?ru;tib!e porcelain, may be implicitly relied upon, as hundreds will affirm who hare given up their eold plates for them?nnd also that fheir health is much improved since doing so Hamdsome amo Deserved Compliment ?
