W0'? ??r readers will join heartily in tbe following words of welcome, addressed by a contributor to Miss Louisa Pyne : To the Engluh Nijfhtingali, Kits Louisa Pyne bt h clay pKiris. Thou art roonefrom a stranger clime, sweet bird! Thou art come from a sfanger clime; And thy Joyous ?t;r.ln Brings back again Bright dreams of tbe summer time ! Thou has left tbv dear old Island-home Wltb tlie proudest of triumphs won - And tn?u almest bright, For a heavenller flight In the land of the setting sun " A wond'rons charm Is thine, sweet bl d ! A wond rous cbarm is thine; To warm this clod With the Are of God By harmony all divine! ??TViled Iong i? ^ Sorgeom strain, *111 we've dreampi of the happier sphere ; And we joyed to feel That Heaven'? bright seal Hath still left its impress here. Now (he cold win'er time hasccme, sweet bl'd ' And thou'It M7 to thy native clime : But thy thrilling strain Shall yet remain With drenns of the olden time ? Washington D. C. Toi Plank Road ?Mr Editor The peti tion presented by Mr. Pearce. of Maryland, in the Senate, last week, from citizens of Mont gomery county, asking that Congress might purchase tbe interests of the stockholders in the plank road and make it a free avenue from the district line to tbe centre or the city of Washington, is one of those measures that ap peal directly to the interests of every one re siding here. It is well known that the toll on this road is exorbitantly high, and yet not too much so to give its stockholders more than 6 per cent, upon their investments, so that it a~ts as a tariff upon the necessaries of life brought by the fanners of Montgomery to our markets, and makes living double a? hi^'h as it would he it no toll was collected. It seems to me that all the leading roads from the ad jacent counties, within the limits cf the Dis trict, should bo as free from all obstructions to trade as the streets or avenues of the city ; for, in fact, when we look at the city and county of Washington they are no more nor less than a community identical in interests, and living under the fostering care of the General Gov ernment The purchase of this road will in volve an outlay of not more than $20,000, if so much ; whilo the benefits to trade, and the consequent reduction on the price of market provisions will more than compensate for its expenditure a hundredfold annuallv. A Farvir. Vitriol Throwirs.?Mr. Editor: Please inform the public that these shameless mis craants are at their malevolent work in this city. Whether the criminals are from abroad, or the crime has found a class of scoundrels here who are pleased with its r.oveltv, it is difficult to say. But my purpose is fulfilled in calling attention to the fact, for the knowl edge of which I a in indebted to an honorable member of the House frcm North Carolina, who told me that a lady, who wag an inm .te cf the samo boarding hr.use with himself had her dress ruined Friday night by this damn able practice. U We can add to the above, that on Saturday night a lady, in passing from Seveuth to Tentb street, on the avenue, had a valuable cloak and dress destroyed in this manner. Duel at Silver Spring.?Messrs. Stodwell and Lee, lawyers of Lunenburg County, Va., on Friday afternoon last proceeded to'Silver Spring, Montgomery County, Md., accompa niedby ilons. Messrs Bocock, Keitt, Gocde, and Cap?. Carrie, of South Carolina, to settle a personal difficulty according to the so-called code of honor After settling the prelimina ries the principals exchanged three shots, all faiLng to take effect upon the persons of the antagonists. At this point of tbe proceedings Messrs Bocock. Keitt, Qoede, and Carrie stepped forw lrd and induced the parties to return to the cify, stating their conviction th at the matter could bo "honorably adjusted with out a farther meeting. i A89AGE Thieves,?During last week the Aaxniay Guards were on the look out for the thieves who h ive arrived in this city to oper ate among the crowd expected to le here during the week of the inauguration. They succeeded in several instan.es in preventing robberies in various parts of the city, though in some instances the thieves were successful. We mentioned that Major C. S. Wailach's residence hud been entered and robbed. In less than a week after that announcement two attempts were made at the same place, but the thieves escaped. At tbe hotel* great caie is taken by the propiietors to prevent the sue cestui operatioLa of thieves. Ihe GaruTing StoRV.?It was reported to the Auxiliary Guard on Saturday night that a gentleman had been garoted ai d robbed on C, Between Fonr-and a half and Sixth streets The statement was. a party of young men rushed upon the person, threw a rope around his neck, and straok him on the head with a sand bag, which stunned him, and then they robbed him. The report is doubtless a hoax, as, on striot inquiry, the Guards are unable to ascertain that any such occurrence took place. It is true that many persons are now in Washington who would do such an aof, but they have kept remarkably still during the la?t week. ?? Disokderlt ?Friday night, the auxiliary guard were called to a hou^e in an alley be tween Tnirdand Foui-and-a-hal:' streets, near Maryland avenue, where there was u, disor derly gathering of colored persons. It ap peareu that a child had died soiae davs sin^o in that h<>u?e. and the mother has beon drunk all the time ^inee; and the party was gather ed to watch by the child, which hi.s not yet been buried All hands had been drunk and diAyrlely The guards ltf; persons to take charge of the corpse and the drunken mother during the night. The Wrong Box.?1 uesday night, a wan dering harpist was sent by some mischievous scamp to the central guard bouse as a place where he would be likely to make money. Ho walked into the trial room where a number of the guard were waiting roll call, and congrat ulating himself upon so large an audience struck up in fine style Happening to cast his eyes npon the rack he saw tbe threatening display of handcuffs, spontons, Ac., and with out to stopping to ask for pay he shouldered his instrument and traveled, never onoe look ing behind until he had gained the street. Washington Athenecm ?The following gentlemen have been elected officers of this at SDciation for the ensuing teim: President, Jno. T. Williams; \ ice do , John N. Oliveij Re cording Secretary, A Beckwith; Assistant do , Theo. F Anders)n; Financial do , James 11 lie*J; Treasurer, L. B Dixon. In tbe discus sions which occur at the regular weekly meet ings much spirit and ability is displayed. On Thursday night, as wo left the room, the policy of the acquisition of Cuba was being discussed in a manner to highly interest the large company present. Gooi'S Recovered.?About the 7th init. a gentleman named Laurow was robbed of a double barreled gun and other articles of valu*. He made his complaint to watohman Nirwood, who obtained the assistance of oiiioer Kimball, and they Eueceeded in recovering the gun. A man named Richards had pawned it with a pawnbroker named Hetburg Rich ards was arrested and held for trial on Wednes day next at 4 p. in , before Justice Donn. F0ITP0.sehe.NT OF THE DtBCT of Dan Ru E Owing to the condition of the river at Havre de Grace, this gentleman found it impossible to get his stock of imported horses, mules and pertormers on iu time to cpen this evening in eonsequenee the performance will be post poned until Wednesday next, when this popu lar Jester will positively appear Mr. Rice's agent arrived this morning and Mr R will oomo on to night.

They were taken befure Justice Donn, who held them to security to keep the peace.

Price 25 cents. math Taulks Turned.?In tho police reports of last week, published in the Star, it should have appeared that Mrs. Halo, on the same day ohanged her boarding bouse ; after which Mrs Chetein, having missed a gold pencil, shawl, and sundry other articles, also a smail aura of money, and from the circumstances of her having seen her pencil in the trunk of said II?*le, she procured fn>m Justice Donu a search warrant to examine her roir.i and truuks in her new boarding boa?e Officer* King and IMggott perf -rmed said service, and found a portion of the goods wLich were lost. Mrs. Hale made a proposal to Mrs. Chetein for a compromise of the matter, whioh wjs partially effected, and promised to make a statement in the Star for tbe purposes of coun teracting the former publication. A stop wa9 ?ut to the compromise by the officers taking Irs. Hale and the stolen articles before Jus tice Donn, when an investigation took place on the night of the 12th inst . after which she was held to appear at the next Criminal Court in the turn of S300 From all the matter as brought to light before the Justice, there is no doubt that Mrs Chetein is entirely exonerated from the charge, as made, of stealing the S170, and that strong doubts exist that Mrs If ale met with the lo-:s as detailed by her, more particularly as on the recent ch.irge consider able amount of gold was found iu her trucks # Watch Returns ?Ramb'e Williams, firing pistol in tho street; fined 55 ar.d cost.

TELEGRAPH NEWS. FROM THE ASSOCIA TED riiESS. ADDITIONAL FOEEIGN INTELLIGENCE VY THE EUROPA. A despatch from Constantinople, dated Jan utry 19th, announces that the British steam er? had evacuated the Isle of Serpenta. European affairs generally were in a slate of quietude, and the main interest was cen tered in the Persian question. THE PtRSIAH OirncnLTT. With regard to the reported Persian subinis sion, Lord Stafford telegraphs that Per'ia sub mit? on general ground?, and not because of the capture of Bushire. The detail? of the capture of the latter place had been received at Bombay. Th? British ships arrived cff Bushire <n the 2tfth of November, and after some corres pondence sent ashore a copy of the declara tion of war. The next day. December 4'h, they took possession of the Island of Karrack, unopposed On the Rth of December the Brit ish troops landed near Bushire; the next morn ing they advanced twu brigades along the coast toward the town The shipa in the meantime were shelling the fort, tho garitson of which were soon dislodged, eight hundred of whom took up a new position to oppose the British advance. After some preliminary skirmishing the British drove the enemy back upon the fjrt, whence they attempted to escape, but the re treat was prevented by tho British rifles sea ward, and the cavairy landward. The enemy were not Persian, but Arabe. TLey lort throe chiefs and a large number of men. The Britiah loss was 3S Bnshiro was then summoned to surrender, hut the summons was refused. Finally, after a bombardment of four hours they yielded. The governor, commander and (.ffi:er, re ported to be ministers of war, were made pris oner? Bushire has been proclaimed to bo British territory and a free port. The city was quiet, but there are ugly rumors of the abominable conduct of the British after the capitulation. THE (.UIKKIX WAR The details of China news confirm the tele graphic acoonnts The f;vctories were burnt by ihe Chinese, the tliincs bursting out sim ultaneously in kll directions AM attempts if the seamen and marines to stop the fire were fruitless It ra^ed all ight *Dd t > the steam er's sailing. Messrs. D.int A Co's premises were first to go, then followed by the whole of Piiushurg heng Tho Iinj. erial and indeed all tho hong.-' were de-troyed The only houses untouched when the steamer left were those of the British consulate, Au gustine Heard and II. Jardine, Matheson ?fc Co., Turner ?& Co , one or two in the New English lion?, Kusatl ?fc Co , in the Swedish hong, and^Vetmore ?t Co, in the Imperial hong. But it wa* dcubtful whether they would ultimately escape. The Agra, Oriental and Mercantile banks wero on tiro, and there was no h^pesof savii g them. Admiral Seymour withdrew his men into the garden, the only refugo 1 aft for for f doners. The Admiral's future steps were un known. There wa* litt'.o doubt, hTwevcr, thd Canton would no longer be spared The d:.-oharg? of shells and rockets had al ready commenced. The L'.i;d? n Times Ilong Kong correspond ence dated December 1j, says: ,?On the loth November, Captain i'ote, of the I* S. si p Portsmouth, was on the way from Wnainpoa to Canton in tho ship's pinnace for the pu: p se of withdrawing the American marines stationed in the foreign factories, when, in passing the Barrier Forts, the boat was fired at hy the Chinese and was obliged to put back to Whampoa, notwithstanding that the Amer ican flie was flying at the time and was also waved from the boat, so that there mu?t be no mistake The American men-of-war, Porti rnouth find Levant, moved up the river and bombarded the fort?, which the Chinese de fended bravely, replying with a well-directed Cre, killing two men and wounding others, tnd doini: some damage to the vessels. Comwt dore Armstrong then wrote to the Viceroy demanding an apology within twenty-feur h>ur?. The reply bein^ unsatisfactory, the Americans at once proceeded to take the forts whtf h they have ?iuce destroyed. In this service several lives were lost. Since this took place, "Yeh*' has written to the American authorities to say that their flag shall be respected, and that it was entirely a mistake that led to the misunderstand! ag There arc jet one <-rtwo small points at issue, but wo understand that the Americans will accept this apology, and withdraw from Can ton. . ? The plenipotentiaries and naval command ers in-cbief of Great Britain and America huve held a conference on Canton, but thero have been no results of importance arrived at. The China Mail of tho 11th snys that the Amoricans met with a latal accident ia com pletii f* the destruction of the barrier lorts? oce of the mines exploded, through the care lessness of a seaman, killicg him and two of his comrades, nnd wour.diug six other*. The Portsmouth and Levant had returned to Whampoa. A despatch says t'ae French had destroyed dome forts. GREAT BRITAIM The London Morning Herald persis s in its statements of an attempted reconstruction the Cabinet by an infusion of the Aberdeen party. The London Post, the government organ, as serts that tho statements of the Herald are unfounded", and that it has gme hopelessly mad. It was, however, generally believed that some such reconstruction was being negotiated among the party. The principal merchants of Liverpool have presented an address to Sir John McNeil and Sir Tulloeh, being the only acknowledgment yet given for their report upon the Crime* mismanagement. The firtt meeting of the Mercantile Law Re firm Conference to k place in London L >rd lire ugh am presided, ar,d duieg'.tes from the principal cities attended A deputation was appointed to call upon Lord Palmerston re_ specting the Bankrupt Laws. The subject of a Tribunal of Commerce was referred to a committee. The working men of London have formed ereigra'ing companies on a lar*e scaie t-j Can ada und Australia. The ticket-of-leave convicts had held a pub lic meeting in London, on the cnll of Henry Mayhew The meeting was favorable to tick ets of leave being gO'.id only in the colonies. All the prisoners in tho case of the recent mutiny < n board the ship Bogert had been liberated except Campbell, the second mate, who is held on the charge ol' sh<M)ting ITALT. From Naples accounts are deplorable Ter ror reigus throughout the capital and king dom. Arrests continue iuces^untly. A prie?t has attempted to assassinate tne Archbishon &f Mitera whiie he was giving his benedic tion to the people. The Archbishop was wounded, and a canon, who attempted to pro tect him, was shot dead by the assassin. IliC LATEST BY IKL^uHAPU TO LIV ERPOOL Paris, Friday.?The Court tf Cessation having rejected Verger's appeal yesterdav, tho assassin was executed this morning He was yreatly distre sel, and it was fvuod neces sary to carry him to the scaffold.
