L0CAL INTELLIGENCE. MtRTi^a or thi Me Ms kb* or m* Pakish or ?:T Patrice.?A meeting of the members of SI. Patrick'* church was held ywterday afternoon. I o'clock. to make preliminary arrangements for the erectiou of a cnurch on the site of the present one Mr. Richard Clark called the meeting to order, and ?tated that, as it was of a business character, It was thought that a lay member should occupy the Chair He nominated Mr. Francis Mohun for that office Mcmm Hugh B Sweeny and Wm. II. Ward were appointed Secretaries. The Rev. Mr. O'Toole stated, briefly, the ob irft of the meeting, which was to take the pre liminary step* towards the erection of the new church liuilaing. It had been talked of a long time; even before it had been his good fortune to lw among them as a pastor, it had been the desire of the parish to erect the church. They were now assembled together to take the preliminary steps to this end. lie looked to this meeting as begin ning the good work, by the grace of God; and he hoped that each and every man present would f-om this time devote his energies to its accom plishment. He said that he had received the en couragement of the Bishop of this diocese to go ?41. as soon a< there was a sufficient amount sub set, bed to keep the work going one working sea son without coming to a stop. He stated that plans had been made l?y Mr. Long. of Baltimore, and it was necessary todeter mine whether they would adopt them or not. Further postponement of the work was entirely unnecessary. The first step was to provide "the sinews of war,*' and as soon as the amount neces sary to ltegin the work with had tieen subscribed a commencement would be made. He desired the members to make up their minds from that hour as to the amount thev would give, and the precis# time when thev would contribute. It had *>een the cherished object of the late lamented Father Mathews to see a lieautiful church erected on the site of St. Patrick's, and he believed that the idea of a grand and imposing cdiflce would lie realised by adopting the plan of Mr. Long. It had been estimated that five years would ??lapse before the building would be completed, ami be thought that it could lie done in that time with proper perseverance on the part of those in terested in it. Mr. Richard Clarke spoke of the lieneflts which the people of the metropolis would derive from the building of this structure He thought that this was an anspicious time to commence the work, and moved that a committee of five per sons be appointed to draw up resolutions expres sive of the sense of the meeting In relation to the new cdiflce; carried. The Chair appointed Messrs Rich'd H. Clarke, pr. A Sims. G. Savage. G. Knnis. and Jno F. C'ovle, ?o serve on that committee. The committer withdrew for the purpose of de lib.-.ation, and after heing absent a short time re turned. and Mr. Clark, from the committee, re ported the following preambleaud resolutions: Whereas, our venerated pastor, the very Rever end St. William Matthews, has left to the parish a large and beautiful site for a church, and every dars experience more clearly proves the necessity of increased church accommodations for this pop ulous and ever growing congregation : and where as. further, we have the cordial approbation of our most Reverend Archbishop, and it should be our honest pride to erect a church that will be becoming tnc perpetual historic grandeur of our holy faith. Its stcadv dignified progress in this free country, and while at the same time it will l?e in keepfng with the well sustained efforts of the whole country to adorn our Federal Metropo lis. lie it fi'tolrnl. That the present is a propitious time to liegin our efforts for the new church, and we freely, one and all. collectively and individually, pledge ourselves to aid the undertaking to the 1?-?.t of our power, by our money and by our iu fluence. contributing' ourselves and solicit^^ and enrouraging all to contribute. ?J That in the circumstances alluded to in which we now stand, it is necessary and expedient to prepare for the erecting of a large and beautiful ti<?tnic church: that the design already submitted ?jives general satisfaction, both as to size and style, aud that Lewis L. Long. Esq , the architect, i> hereby requested to present, with the least pos sible delay, an accurate estimate of the cost of erection, in order to enable us to determine fiually in relation to the design 3. That, in the ineantim?. it is necessary to be gin at once this indispensable work of pioviding funds, and for that purpose, having entire confi dence in the real and energy of our pastors, under the guidance of our mott Rev. Archbishop, we lespectfully invito the Reverend Pastors of the Parish, to open, this very day. a subscription 1st. and a committee of seven gentlemen be ap pointed to aid them in collecting in the Parish and City of Washington. 4. Thai a permanent committee of three be ap pointed. whose business it shall lie to receive ail the moneys collected, deposit them in liank, and publish a quarterly statement of receipts aud ex penditures. 5. And that these resolutions lie published in all the city papers, and the Baltimore Catholic Mirror. The resolutions were unanimously approved and adopted Mr. W a'd moved that the pastors of St. Pat rick's Church be instructed to appoint the several committee* which were called tor by the resolu tions. So ordered. The Secretary drew up a subscription paper, and those present crowded around with eager ness to contribute for the good work. The fol lowing amounts were subscribed: James C?den. ni.UUl; Gregory Ennis, 500 for five years, *100 annually: W E. Stublis. 500 do.; Wm. H. Wa.d, 300 do.; II. B Sweeny,5U0do.; (?eo Savage, ,300 do.: J F Coyle, 500 do ; J. F. Boone. oO?? dc.; O. Leddy. 500 do.; R. H. Clarke ??iO. 50 aunually;*F. Mohun. 530 do.: a number of others for SIMM * Also, several for ISO and small er amounts to be paid annually, until the comple tion of the church. The total amount contributed yesterday was f7.1J6 ?5. The River?The upper fishings were doing a pretty fair business yesterday. The Jackson ? ity landings yielded on one tide yesterday morn ing upwards of one thousand shad. The canal boat which was lost at the western draw last week, went down head foremost, and her cargo of lime shiftiug to her bows, sent her head into the inud, while her stern is sticking out of the water at low tide, and directly in the way of vessels that may pass through the day. It is supposed that the steamboat Columbia will not l>e at^le to get through the draw this morning on her customary trip up from Alexandria in conse quence. Yesterday, a longlioat. in passing up through the Georgetown channel, ran against one of the broken piers, aud stove a large hole in her side, just at her water line. She was finally got olf Without further damage Arhv?ni schr Diamond State. Carey, at Harvey A Co's wharf, from Port Richuiond. with llif tons fcard coal, for Messrs. Harvey A Co.

This morning, the steamer Mount Vernon took pa't of the excursionists of the congregation of M Mathews' church to the White House Pavil ion The crowd was so great that there was no r'??m for the Sunday School children, and the Thomas Collycr chartered by the committee ?>f arrangements to take the reniainder of the jiarty. The Mount Vernou took on hoard about JW (jiown persons and started ofl. and about :130 bo>s and girls went down in the Collycr. The t>rocessiou came down to the wharf preceded by Weber's band, and the happy faces of the chil dren indicated the anticipated pleasure of the trip lit a manner more plainly than words could have expressed. A' Alexandria there wa* no arrival of fish this morning. Yesterday shad were sold at SI I iter 1..Mid red. and herring were all taken at $10 jier thousand, leaving the m irket entirely mtsupplied. Capt Gibson caught on one tide yesterday, at 5ioney Point landing. rt.Uio shad and lO.tfljO her ring. which he sold at the Alexandria wharf at the above prices. A Musical Fe\t. Indeed?We hear that a very alttactive entertainment is now in rehearsal at the Academy of Music; Rossini's Stabat Ma ter ami Handel's 3th Oratorio, which are to be Itroduccd in the lecture rooin of the Smithsonian institution, on the l??th of May. by over two hun dred performers, embracing Mr. Crouch,conduc tor, Mr Caulfleid. pianist, Mrs. Young, Miss D-Hoye. Miss Melcher. Miss French. Mr. KgloJ. stem, and all the members of St. Matthew's choir, assisted by the German Singers' Club, and and orchestra of forty musicians. To dwell upon the tieauties of the music selected, and the merits of the performers, would be superfluous. All our read rs. wImi can possibly do so. will doubt less |;o and judge for themselves. The it:\? Catholic Cmcbch.?The plans of Mr. Lewis L. Long f<?r the proposed uew Church to erected on the site of H. Patrick's, comer of Mrh and F streets, are spread out at the wonts adjoining the Chnrch. The new cdiflce will oc ? upy a spare of ground couiprising 33.8feU square feet. Tne clear length of the nave being *211 feet, and Ns feet wide, and the extent of the transept 174 feet, and # feet wide The height of the ? edingof the main body of the Church is 85 feet. The roaf of the dome will extend much higher. The extreme altitude of the front elevation is 312 feet. The building will ?eat. when completed, ??.?00 persons The stvle of architecture is of pure Gothic. Horse Stialik.?Yasterday, a man named Crandell Hawley was arrested by Police Officer Watson for stealing a ho'se belonging to Mr NV. Stone. Hawley was taken before Justice tiod d.t d. and was by him committed to jail for trial n< I ?>urt The horse was valued at f*?00. and Was found in the stable where the prisoner was taken. I The Proposed Ship Canal on Jahii'i Creek?Some day* ago we noticed the proposed extension of the present Arsenal grounds in this city, ?"d for which object Congress at its last sw *lo? passed an appropriation for the purchase of all the ground* extending from the present Arsenal wall to P street south, and from the Potomac river to James's creek. In connection with the above improvements something was said about i pro posed ship canal np James's creek. In replv to several communications en the subject of this canal, its course and size, we reply that the propoul of Major Bell in relation to this improve ment Ts to follow the line of James's c reek, which ' runs in a very nearly direct line to where it inter | sects the city canal at the junction of F street south and Virginia avenue. He propones to make this canal at least twenty feet deep and sixty feet in width. This arrangement would, If carried out, restore the city canal to its original direction as laid i down on the old city maps. An appropriation was made by Congress last winter of ij.oUU for a flood gate to be put down at the mouth of this creek. This was done with a view to draining the creek, and if possible to prevent the decay or vegetable matter, which gives rise to that poison ous miasma so productive of chills and fever all along the marsh, and extending even past the Capitol to the neighborhood of English Hill, and as far as the residence of Judge Douglas. The draining of this creek will produce a change in some degree t>eneficlal to that district, but much more so would the proposed canal. In the first case the etfect would be only partial, in the last it would be complete. Kvery'tide would carry off down the river channel the putrid outpourings of the city sewers, which now to a great extenT re main, and poison the air, which perhaps one half of the citizens of Washington is compelled to breathe daily during the warm season. The proposed flond-gate at the mouth of the creek will be so arranged as to open at the ebb tide and close at its flood. The river water will thus be prevented from passing up into thecreek, and every ebb will carrv out into the river all that has accumulated behind the dim. That these improvements will have most bene ficial results is shown by the already increased activity in real estate transactions and building operations in the Seventh Ward. Washington Cemeteries.?The following list of burial places in and about the city was furnished by a gentleman whose position affords him an opportunity of knowing their locatious and owneri. Several of them are seldom used I and little known : The East Methodist, or Ebenezer burial ground, 1 is situated in the Sixth Ward, opposite the Con ! gressional Cemetery. It is the property of Ebe nezer Station. The West Methodist,or Found'y burial ground, between Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets west, near W street, belongs to Foundry Station. German Lutheran, between fourth and Fifth street* east, and G and II noith, to the German Lutheran Society. German Catholic, between north Capitol and First streets east, and O and P north, to the Ger man Catholic church on Fifth street. Congressional burial ground, near the Navy Yard, to Christ church. Sixth Ward. Ulenwood Cemetery, l>eyond the boundary on north Capitol street, belongs to a company. St. IVWs,lietween Fourth and Fifth streets east, and II and 1 north, to St. Peter's (Catholic) church. St. Patrick's, )>etween First and Second streets j west, bevond north Boundary street, to St. Pat rick's (Catholic) church. St Mathew's, between Thirteenth and Four teenth street* west, and U and V north, to St. Mathew's (Catholic) church Eastern Cemetery, between Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets east, and II and 1 north, to the Corporation. Western,or Holmead's burial ground, between Nineteenth and Twentietl*?treets west,and Sand T north, to the Corporation. The old Methodist, between Twelfth and Thir teenth streets east, and 1 and Boundary. Marine burial ground, east of Congressional Cemetery, near the Navy Yard; Government. Washington Asylum, or Potter's Field, in the Asylum Square; Corporation St John s. (old,) between Twelfth and Thir teenth streets west, and R and S north, to St. John's (Episcopal) church. Hartnoneon, oetween Fifth and Sixth streets west, and S and Boundary ; colored company. Free Young Men's, between Twelfth and Thir teenth streets west, and V and W ; colored com I pany. Bnrial ground for colored persons, between Sixteenth and Seventeenth streets east, and C and D south. Various societies own lots in burial grounds in the adjoining counties, but have no burial grounds in their own names. Map of Washington.?Really one of the most valuable articles that has lately met our eye is a specimen number of a map of this city, by Mr. Boschke of the Coast Survey, and for which Mr. , Bobn, the well known bookseller at the Capitol, | is getting subscriptions. Nothing like this map has yet been got up of this city as regards beauty of execution, and a minute accuracy of detail of every particular of streets, lanes, water courses, elevations, depres sions. land marks, boundaries. A c Think of the value to the property holder of a map which shows in addition to the public build ings. the location of every dwelling house, out building and improved lot in the city of Wash ington, and moreover of the suburbs for some distance out! The river surroundings are also laid down, and in fact the inap seem* to be a l complete daguerreotype of the city and its sur < roundings. It is moreover sold at a price which 1 places it within the reach of all. The amount of . labor requisite to get up such a map is almost | frightful to think of, anu how it can be made to pay expenses at the price for which it is sold is ; more tnan we can guess. However, Mr. Bohn undertakes to do it, so it is his own lookout, and if he ruins himself by selling his maps lower than he can afford he must not blame us or the purchasers. FroiTiVE Slaves. ? Within the past week, quite a number of fugitive slaves have been ar rested by the auxiliary guard and police officers ; and it is quite certain that there are agents of the underground railroad at work in the adjoining counties of Maryland and Virginia. Of the first lot, six in number, three were arrested by Watch* ( man Horner, and the other three by Horner, as sisted by Officer W ollard. They belongto a Mr. I Geary, of Anne Arundel county. Md. The next I lot. of three, belonging to Mr. Sullivan, of Vir ginia. were tak?*n by Police Officer Williamson, Watchn?en Gill and Sessford. Watchmen Homer and Klonfer arrested another slave, belonging to I Mrs. Bell, of Marylhnd. Three others, belonging to C. B. Calvert, of Prince George county. Md , were arrested by Watchmen Donnelly and Dove, i Thewe were provided with ehanges of clothing, and were armed with pistols and knives for re 1 sistance; but the watchmen, by the rapidity of their descent upon the fugitives, prevented tneir using the weapons. Transfer op Voters.?We give the follow ing extract from the "Act to provide for the regis j trattonof all persons in the city of Washington ! subject to the school tax, and for other purposes," as of interest to many of our readers at this time : ??Sec. 6. And be it further enacted, That no part of this act shall be so construed as to prohibit the Register from transfering the name of any person on the list of any Ward, or precinct of a ward, froui that to anotoer Ward; he making an entry on the list to what Ward, or precinct of the Ward, said person may be so transferred ; and it is hereby made his duty to make the said transfer, and upon refusal to do so he shall l?e liable to a flue of not less than twenty nor more than fifty dollars; provided it shall be done five days prior to the day of election." The Moncment to Stuart Holland ?We have received a communication signed '? A B. C." inquiring '-what has become of the subscrip tion list for the purpose of erecting a monument to the memory of the lamented Stuart Holland' It will l>e remembered that he sank with the wreck of the Arctic, enveloped in the smoke of the last minute gun." Our correspondent adds: " I never saw Stuart Holland, nor have I the honor of an acquaintance with any memljer of his i bereaved family; but his noble conduct in that fatal hour is still fresh, and. as a testimonial of j my sympathy with his ufflictcd friends and rela 1 tives, and admiration of his gallant conduct in striving to the last moment to save the ill-fated . ship, I desire to add my inite to this praiseworthy ; object."

Mr. Henry Myers, of Rich mond, is now on the ground making every prepa ration in his power lor the entertainment of the ? pilgrims.' " Monsieur Tonson come aoain !?It will be seen by the advertiseinent in another column of this day's issue that the adjourned meeting of the Board of Managers of the Washington Monn ment Society takes place to-morrow afternoon at 5 o'clock, and there will no doubt be a full atten dance of the members, inasmuch as by motion of Mr. Magruder, at the last meeting, the Secretary was directed to serve every member with a writ ten notice of the meeting, and there is every rea son to believe that that functionary has fulfilled his instructions to the letter.

About the time when the congregation was assembling at Trinity Church one of the boys shot a ball into a frame building where a number of children were playing, fortunately without injuring any ofthrm. Mid, Filth axd Stagnant Water.?The condition of the southeast corner of Market Space requires the attention of those whose duty It is to remove such unhealthy accumulations.
