L0CAL INTELLIGENCE. \ Afffat?This morning, about 8 o'clock- Mr J Mc ^eod Murphy, formerly of the Navv, now a civil engineer, employed by the Government at the Brooklyn Nary Yard, entered th* fnom occupied by Hon Daniel E Sickle*, (at H ,'lards' Hotel.) who was awakened by a knock mi the door. and rising from bed. opened it on be. informed by a servant that a gentleman de sired to see him (Mr. Sl< kles ) Onentering the room. Mr. Murphy, announcing his intention to be to settle with Mr. S., drew off to strike at him (und.es.sed) with the butt of a small rawhide he carried; which was caught and wrest ed from him by Mr. Sickles, who struck him three or four rapid blows with the whip. In the n,raa time. Mr. Murphy struck Mr. Sickles a se vere b>ow in the face, with a ring. key. or some thing that cut him severely, without doing him a ?e'-ous injury. The* were alone in the room, and struggled there for some time, until Mr Sickles, having his assailant by the throat, relinquished bis hold and turned him out of the room, previously unlocking the ?t?or which he (Sickles) had locked imme ?Intelv after Mr. Murphy nished into it evidently with a host.le purpose We hear that there had been. In the course of the week, a correspondence between these parties, relative to alleged efforts of Mr. Sickles to induce the appointment of another in place of Mr. Mur phy. ending in a challenge from the latter,which was declined on the grouud that the circumstan ces on which it was predicated did not justify its acceptance. MkSTIXO OF THK MERCHANTS' Association. Pursuant to a call of the Secretary, a meeting of the Association was held last night, at the rooms over the Savings* Bank. The Secretary not being present, Mr. Thomas J. Fisher was elected Sec retary pro um. Mr. Wall stated the object of the meeting; which was. to endeavor to do away with the erroneous prejudice at present existing abroad in relation to the late sickness at the National Hotel, lie said that the feeling had gone all over the country that the hotel sickness was contagious, and that thecitvof Washington was infected with a general epidemic. That these rumors were groundless there could be no doubt. The business interests of the city were deeply involved by these u|?rts. The report of the Boardof Health in re 1. it ton to the matter bad been set at naught by the )>re?.s of the eitv. and the public journals of the whole country were teeming with marvellous and frightful rumors of the most ridiculous character. It was high time that the matter was investigated, in order to restore to the country confidence and assurance of safety in visiting the city. Mr. IK>dson pointed out the way to bring about the desired effect, which was to inform the pub lic abroad of the present healthy condition of the ? lty. to show that the late disease was confined t on rely within the National Hotel. Medical opinions were expressed by Dr*. Du h.tutel. Anliscl. and Breed. |?r. Breed uave ?' his opinion that the cause of the late disease was atmospheric, and might break out again, being caused by the foul air of the sewers. It. although suppressed for a time, mi^ht break out In the middle of summer. He r?< ouiitieiidcd a further investigation. Dr. Dull tun 1 rejected the idea of the rcappear ain e of the disease in very strong terms. After considerable dilute the following resolu tion was passed : K*?+iV'd, That a committee of three l>e ap pointed to draft such resolutions in regatd to the National Hotel sit kness a- they m*y deem neces sary. and have them publi -hud in the newspapers of the city Messrs W. Wall, Ja-. B Dcd on. and S P Franklin were appointed to serve on the coiuuwt i?c . and the meeting adjourned. l ios the River?There is no news of im portance from the Potomac this morning. The : is covered with drift wood, brought down bv the t1?cd occasioned by the late rains. The river shores are lined with persons who have left their usual occupation for the more profitable one ? ?f wood fishing. If the shad ami herring yield i? a failure, there is an abnndanee of drift wood to-day. The current is rushing past the Long Hridge with great velocity, and there is prospcct ? f its continuing this way for several days- The eld authorities in such matters, say that this freshet will be the signal for a general cutting out of the fishermen. The current sends the drift wood through the nets carrying them away The surface of the water is black with this rubbish. ^ esterday evening a sloop came up to the Wash ington draw of the Long Bridge, with ?00 btish ? !s of wheat, for the use of the new tlour mill of Messrs. Colt man A Duncanson. The stockholders of the Washington and Alex andria Steamboat Company went down to the White House to-day, accompanied by several of the Corporation officials. invited guests, and oth er-. on a grand shad plank party.

Yocxg Miss' Christian Association.?On the *Jlst of May the Fourth Annual Convention of Young Mens' Christian Associations of the Tnited States and British Provinces will beheld at Rich mond, Ya. The Association in this city elected delegates to this meeting last evening. The num ber of representatives was fixed at ten, although more than that nuuit>er were chosen, as it is probable all will not I* likely to go. The names of those elected are as follows : Wm J. Hh*e*.

Mietiss i2i TiiK First Ward ?A large meet ing of the citizens of the First Ward, opposed to the Know Nothing party, was held last evening in the ball of the Western Hose company to make ii'Minnations for an Alderman and Councilman.

The Water Won**.?At the office of Capta>n Meigs more than loO contractors have sent in bids for the several branches of the new Water Works. The amount of capital which they represent is es t mated at f lU.hWMK*) There is every prospect that the works will progress during the coming "iimmer far beyond general exnertati??n.

A Mulloy, National Musical Association ?1The after noon session yesterday was taken up by the Con vention in singing the principal choruses of the cantata, entitled the " Haymakers, composed by Prof. Geo. F. Root. The practice of the?e cho ruses wm corn in ued up to the time of adjourn ment. Previously, however, to the choral prac tice the Association was drilled in the exercises of the singing school. The lecturer gave some examples of style illustrating In a happy and ef fectual manner the subjects under consideration. The Evening Session met at 8 o'clock, some two hundred members being present, and a large and brilliant audience of spectators, who seemed to enjoy the entertainment vastly. Examples in chanting and the general rules to be observed in the proper rendition of church chanting were given, and the Convention took up the choruses in the ?? Haymakers.'' and continued in the prac tice of the various choruses up to 10 o'clock. This morntng the session was occupied pretty mu?h in tHe same manner. Prof. Root gave some examples of musical composition, showing tne proper adaptation of music to the words in a way to bring *ut the true sense of the poet. That style of church music which is denominated pretty, without being at all appropriate to the theme, was contrasted, with great effect, with the true and simple adaptation of the feeling of the poet to the music. The Convention will give a closing concert to morrow night, at the Smithsonian Institution, which will, no doubt, be a brilliant affhir. Circuit Court?Judges Dunlop and Merrick. King r.t. Kirkley?This was an application made by a colored woman named King to have the in dentures cancelled, which were made to the de fendant by Justices Donn and Goddard of her two sons, by and with the consent of their father a few weeksbeforehisdecea.se, he joining in said in dentures and becoming a party thereto. Mr. Car rington. who appeared for the petitioner, asked for the cancelling of the indentures on the ground, tlrst, that the tith section of the law granting the power to Justices of the Peace in the recess of the Orphan's Court to bind out apprentices, requires that the parent in thirty days thereafter shall en dorse his or her approval in said indentures, other wise the indentures are void; said indentures failing to have said endorsement. The Court over ruled this point, on the ground that the father joining in the indenture, obviated the necessity of the endorsement. Mr. Carrington then brought witnesses to prove that Kirkley When he had said boys indented to hiiu, made an agreement to pav to their father about the sum of 9250, all of which he has failed to pay, and that the indentures require that thev shall be taught the business of bricklaying and plastering, and to receive good treatment, instead of which'he has l?cen derelict in every particular, not being engaged in any business, and unable to comply with the terms of the indentures. In this view of the case the indentures were can celled. A MEETING OF THE ItoARDOF MANAGERS OF the Washington National Monument Soci ety was held yesterday afternoon, at the room of their Secretary, City Hall. Although the meet ing had been duly advertised in the city papers by the Secretary, there was no quorum. Tne fol lowing memlxTit were present : Messrs. Magru der. Knight, Kllis and Folk The members con versed about various matters for some time, and finally Mr. Kniglit was dispzt hc4 to the office of the Treasurer, Mr McCalla witha view of bring ing that gentleman into the meeting in older to make a quorum After Mr. K departed on his errand to the Trea surer, those present,werefavored with some lugu brious remaiks by Judge Ellis, who presides over the Washington Monument Association, the Organ newspaper, and other hopeful enter prises. The Judge seemed to feel particularly bilious in view of the manner in which the ?? variety press" of the city have overhauled the doings of the Monument Board; but his sentiments were ex pressed with so much more bitterness than clear ness, that it was not easy to say precisely what he was driving at. Half an hour passed away in this manner, when Mayor Magtuder made* the motion to adjourn to next Tuesday evening at 5 o'clock p. m.; which motion was carried. The Monument still remains unfinished. Gaszynski's May Festival came off last night, at the Washington Assembly Rooms, in delightful style, indeed. In the brilliant gather ing we noticed not a few of the most prominent and fashionable personages of the city, many of them gratified spectators of the proficiency of their own children who have been pupils of Prof. Gaszynski. At eight o'clock the graceful May Queen, Miss Blanche Kearney, of Georgetown, was crowned, and the children"' fancy dances entered upon. The costumes of the performers were most rich and tasteful, and were carried out with great ac curacy of detail. The following dances were admirably done, indeed, and in several instances the p? formers were literally showered with boquets by their admirers: Tne Cracovienne, Miss Guthrie; Pan dedeux. Misses Josephine and Christie Maynard ; I?a Saltarella. Miss Alice Poulton; the Craco vienne, Miss Nellie Maynard; the Highland Fling. Master E. Wilson; the Medley Dance, Miss Mary Vischer; the Cachuca, Miss Mary McGuire. In the course of the evening, F.sputa (whose fine l?and furnished the evening's music) exe cuted in admirable style a solo on the 8ax? horn from the opera of " Lucia." Hard Party.?About three o'clock yesterday a party of four persons, apparently intoxicated, were seen by officer Keese stoning a colored man who wis painting a house in the First Ward. He went to Justice Drnry's and obtained the aid of police officer Daw Upon their return the rioters came out of a grocery store kept by Mrs. O'Keefe. One of them, named l'arris, took up a bundle of brooms, and the proprietress supposing he was going off with thern, seized hola of the brooms One of the gang thereupon took a stone weighing near thirteen pound*, and struck her on the head a severe blow The officer* pursued them and ar rested one of them named Dennis Magee; another was so closely followed to the Rock Creek shore by officer Keese that he threw off his coat ami es caped bv taking t*> swimming over. In the pock ets of this coat the officer found six heavy stones, being, literally, a '-pocket full of rocks." l'ar ris, who went to Justice Drury's office to see how his fr+eod Magee fared on his trial, was hauled up on his own account and held to bail for Court. ^ A Jar in the Collector's Office.?Yester day morning, we hear. Mr. W.J Donoho, the city tax clerk, on entering his room at the City Hall, found thetax t>ooks for l->5#? missing, and having o< casjon to use thein he repaired toths Collector's office where thev had been taken, and in a respect ful manner applied for the books, saying that it was proper they should 1* in his office, wl>ere ac cess could be had to them with all the requisite facilities. General McCalla thereupon picked up a huge piir of office tonirs and brandishing them vigor ously proclaimed that whoever took the books from him must do so by superior force. Mr Donoho calmly advised his heated assail ant not to use the tongs, and after a season the?e fireside indispensable* came down, but not on the tax clerk's head The matter rest* here. The Collector retains the books, and claims the right so to do up to the 1st of J uly, we believe. Cotrt or Claim*.?To-day?all the Judges being present?Hon Richard Brodhead.of Penn sylvania. and Henri Hcrrisse, of South Carolina, were admitted as attorneys of this Court. Judge Gilchrist delivered adverse opinions in the following cases. Viz: Of Henry J. Smith; Philip Lamay; Joseph Stokeley ; Arnold Harris, administrator of Armstrong; and Ellen Martin. The case of Richard L. Page, administrator, was then taken up, and Mr. Thompson opened the argument on the part of the claimant, in which he was engaged as the Star went to press. Orhway's Eolians, at Odd Fellows' Hall, have placed themselves at the height of popular regard here. Excellent as vocalists, and inimita ble as humorists, and moreover keeping always within the bounds of good taste, they are des tined to make hosts of friends in Washington. It is just the entertainment now needed here. The Hall was crowded last night and night before. We are sorry to -learn from the accomplished leader, Mr Ordway, that his company can per form here but five nights, as they have important engagements elsewhere A Hopeful Movement.?The children and youths of l lie city have lately formed a Temper ance Society, which meets on Sunday afternoons, at 5 o'clock, at the rooms of the Young Men's Christian Association. The officers elected for the next three months, are : T. Edwin Brown, President; Francis Gudgin, Vice President; J. Edw'd Smith, Secretary; and Henry Gass, Treas urer. Arrangements are now being made for a great public meeting of the children in favor of Tem perance. A* (4r?fortunate Stranger.?Last evening, a woman, having an infant in her arms and a small boy walking by her side, was wandering about the streets looking for her brother, John Graham, a saddler. Being unable to find him she took her children to the guard-house, and was permitted to remain there until this morning. She coines from Ohio, gives her name as Rosa McMahon, and is 32 years of age If her brother will Inquire of Captain Mills or Justice Goddard he will hear more about her. Th? Bcrdell Murder.?Our readers who wish to get the history of the great trial of Eckel and M s. Cunningham for the murder of Bnrdell w?H do well to send to Shillington's at once and make arrangements for the New York Daily Her ald. that lieing the only fiaiier which will contain a full report of the trial, Shlllington rereires the New York daily paper* every evening at 7 o'clock MECHANICS' INSTITUTE AND THE MaREET ? Last night at a meeting ef the building committee of the Metropolitan Mechanic's Institute the sub ject of their new hall was discussed, and the opinion appeared to be generally expressed that for the good of the city a* well as the Institute, tbo best plan would be to build the hall in con nection with the proposed new Centre Market. This expression of opinion may probably induce our City Fathers to put an end to delay and re move the present shabby market, and commence the erection of a more suitable building. Government Improvement.?'The grading of New Jersey avenue, for which an appropriation of ?7,000 was made by the last Congress, was commenced this morning.
