LOCAL 1NTELL1GENCE. METBOrOLITA* MkCHJIMCI' IjtSTITCTE.?A meeting of the Board of Managers of the Metro polian Mechanics' Institute wan held last night at the Aldermen's Room, City Hall, President T lT Walter, la the Chair. The report of the Superintendent, (Mr. Stans i>urv.) of the late exhibition was read by Mr. Walter. After which Mr. J T. Mitchel made some complimentary remark* on the unexceptionable manner In which Mr. Stansbnry had performed hi* arduous duties. and offered a resolution ten dering the thanks of the Association to that gen tleman ; which resolution was unanimously adopted. ' Mr Stan?burv. from the building committee, made the following report, accompanied by a memorial proposed to be presented to the City Councils: 1 To th* B^trrl of Management of tke M'tropol * mm Institute: The committee on the building lieg leave to report that immediately nfter their appointment they proceeded to perform the duty assigned to I hem by th^ resolution of the Board, to take into consideration the best mode of pro viding the Institute with a suitable building. They have held a meeting of the members, at which the whole subject has besn freely dis missed , and by the kind permission of the Mayor they have been allowed to inspect the plans for a I market-house, submitted to the Corporation, i which plans embrace a provision for the wants of 1 the Institute. Without discussing the relative merits of these plans, the committee would observe that the one presented by Win. II. Ranlett. Ksq., and ap proved by the Councils, seems, with such slight modifications as they could suggest as would only enhance its architectural effect, to possess all the requisites necessary for the purposes of the Insti tute. The committee, however, do not propose now to report or endorse any particular plan, but rec ommend to the Board to simply test the sense of the incoming City Councils, by presenting for their consideration the memorial wnich the com mittee appends as a part of the report. Should the connection prayed for be granted, the commit tee have little doubt, as they state in the memo rial. that it would l>e easy to devise a plan which would be satisfactory to both parties. By order of the Committee. Trtos L*. Walter, Chairman. Chas. F Stajssbcrt. Sec'y. MIXOItAL. T<? the honorable tke Board of Aldermen and Common Council of Ike city of Washington: The memorial of the undersigned, officers and directors of the Metropolitan Mechanics' Insti tute. respectfully represents that, about live years igo, a large number of the citizens of Washing ton organized themselves into an association for the promotion of the mechanic and useful arts, under the title of the '? Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute;"' that they adopted a constitution and bv-laws. and selected a boaid of officers and di rectors. who, with their successors, haveconduct c.l the affairs of the association from that time to the present. That, shortly after the organization, they an nounced their intention to hold an exhibition of works of American industry, in this city, which purpose they carried into successful execution in February arid March. 1K>3, by holding an exhibi tion in the great hall of the east wing of the Pat ent Office. That sa'd exhibition was not only well attended by exhibitors but was so liberally patronized l>v the public that a profit of several thousand dollars was realized by the Institute. That this money was principally devoted, un der the direction of the predecessors of your me morialists. to the establishment of a School of liesign. which was attended by a large number of pupils, whose rapid progress was a subject of great congratulation, and proved that such a school was a public want, which was urgently felt by the community. That it was and is a part of the plan of this in- ( etitatioa to establKh not only a school of design In the elementary principles of those sciences which lay at the foundation of the practical pur suits of life, and an acquaintance with which is so essential to the intelligent mechanic; but that owing to the want of means this part of theorigin al plan has never been attempted. Neither was the Institute able to succeed in the establishment of a library and reading room, as the expense was greater than they felt justified in incurring. That the Institute held a second exhibition in 1865 at the Smithsonian Institution, but that notwith st tnding the large attendance and liberal receipts t:.e expenses were not inet by about $T,nno. That 'he third exhibition was held in March of the present year, and although the nr.inber of con tributors was greater than at any former period, and the receipts larger, no balance has ?>een left available for the operations of the Institute. The undersigned state these facts to show that they have l**en unable to carry out the great lead i i,; aims of the institution successfully, liecause tbey have been obliged, at all their exhibitions thus far. to expend large sums for temporary ac commodations which had to be renewed at an equal expense at every succeeding exhibition. They have sunk, in this way, since the organi zation of the Institute, a sum of about IHO.UU). , which, as lias Ixren already correctly observed in the last report of the Superintendent?"would have been sufficient tobuildalibraryand reading room. a lecture hall and ample accommodations for the various classes contemplated by the Con stitution." . The undersigned are convinced from the expe rience of other cities. and from their own obser vation of facts in the history of this Institute, that there is in this District population of the proper character, to support liberally an institution like the one they are now endeavoring to establish on a permanent basis. Citizeus of Washington and the District are with thein in this endeavor; and deeming the institution one of public importance and value, d??ely bearing upon the prosperity of the city, they feel just)fled in approaching your honorable body for the purpuse of asking your assistance and co-operaticn in carrying out the plans which they have formed for giving it permanence. They feel satisfied that all that is required t<? a'.ve permanency to the agency which has already been set in operation with such beneficial effect is a suitable building for the accommodation of its si hools lecture room, library, reading room, and exhibitions Such a building they believe might be erected by the subscription of their fellow citizens, provided the plans could be brought out under suitable ausplcesand with a sufficient guar antee of its being promptly and properly executed. ^ our memorialists, after careful consideration and consultation, have concluded that the most feasible plan is to unite their interests with those of the Corporation and the public by building the hall of the Institute in connection with the new market house so long and so generally de sired bv the inhabitants of this city In what way this might l?e done, your tnemo rialists do not now propose to suggest, convinced that should your honorable lx>dv deem the enter prise worthy of your patronage It would be satis fa? twry to lx>th r>artie>. The object of the present memorial is simply to a-k that your hono'ab'e Itody will take the mat ter into consideration, and should the general plan meet your approbation, authorize a con sultation on your part with a committee on the paxt of the Institute for the purpose of ascertain ing the best mode in which the proposed object may be accomplished And your memorialists, as in duty bound, will even pray T I" Walter. President. Cm. F. Wood, Vice President. Mr Walters here entered into a short explana tion of the proposed plan for anew market-house by Mr Kanlett It was. said Mr. W., the idea of the Board to let the Corporation build the first story of the market-house, which consists of five principal divisions and then for the Institute to come in and build the second story for their own purpose* The plan had been decided to be too large by the committee, and it was suggested to ; get the Co. (toration to take off the two outside ' div -ions of the uuper story which would greatly | feduce the cost of building, and I* a much more >?eautiful architectural composition. The group i would l>e more pyramidal, and suit the purposes ? f the Corporation to the letter ; or let the Corpo- 1 ration go on and build the first story of the whole plan, and the Institute could then build on the three principal f onts. and then would have a room the most beautiful and giand in the world for the exhibitions of the Institute. The room would l?e iWU feet long and 75 wide, and wou'd have on its front division ten additional rooms The large hall would be surrounded with gal leries, and would make the grandest hall for the exhibitions of the Institute, and for public concerts, ever seen in the world. Mr J I, Clubb observed that the musical peo ple of Washington were about forming an associ ation of the professional and amateur musicians, for the purpose of building a hall for the use of the sever;; 1 musical associations of the city, and they would no doubt cheerfully and cordially co operate with the Board in the proposed plan, should the hall be adapted to musical purposes. Www remarks were made by Mr. Mitchell, in relation to the manner in which the proposition of a combination should be laid before the City Councils; and then the memorial was referred back to the building committee, with instruc tion* to do with it as they might aeem proper in relation to Its presentation to the two Boards of the City Councils. Mr Mitchell presented the bill of Geo. ft Thos. | Parker, which had been referred to the commit tee on finance ; which was accepted,?as was aiso t he bill of Jacob kleiber. of 93 50, for lighting the Aldermen*' room. | Mr. Mitchell moved that when the Bonrd ad- > journ thev adjourn to meet on the first Thursday night in June; carried. And then the Board adjourned. Cosce?t or the Fdcitb Dutiict School. We have only space to-day to call attention to the sdvertisement of this concert, to come off on Tuesday night next. We know, f-om personal otmervation. that the Fourth Dist.ict (Island) M'hool contains a remarkable amount of musical talent, and we have no little curiosity to note its d-v?-lopment under the judicious teachership of a gentleman so admirably qualified for his position a* is Mr. Glenroy.

I have the honor to be *ir, your most obedient servant, ^ C. Dorwin, ~ United States Consul. To his Honor, the Mayor of Washington, D C. Patent Office Improvements.?The north front extension of the Patent Office is beginning to give evidence of rapid progress towards com pletion. The foundation works are being put down with due regard to the immense weight of stone which will be placed upon them in the erec tion of the walls. The western portico is being kept somewhat back on account of the scarcity of the supply of stone wo'k. The granite stairway in the rear is in course of construct ion, and will be a master piece of stone masonry when completed. The new exhibition hall is some three hundred feet i n extent by fifty broad, and entirely clear from any obstruction. No columns or other mechanical ap pliances are apparent: the ceiling being support ed by the iron roof. The floor tlfinC, which s of white and black marble, (mosaic.) will l?e all set by a month hence. So large and fine a hall as this will not be found elsewhere in the I'nited States. The Public Ground*.?Lately, various per sons have been committing dep-edations upon the grounds of the Smithsonian Institution which have required the interference of the Captain of the auxiliary guard as a check. Mr. J. B Frere, a guard detailed for duty at that post, saw a num ber of persons harvesting grass there yesterday without authority, and arrested one of them who proved to be least at fault, and was dismissed on his giving information which may lead to the arrest of the more guilty parties. Some years ago a high official functionary was seen on a gunning expedition for blue birds and robins in the Capitol grounds, and more recently a lad prepared himself with hook and line to catch gold fish in the basins at the Capitol, both under the impression that being public property anyone had a right to enjoy it. But both we-e taught differently by the police, and lessons will soon be given to others. The Body of an Infant, supposed to have l?een murdered by its mother, was disinterred this morning by officer Keese, and the mother taken before Justice Goddard The case was dismissed, however, a* there was no evidence of the child having coine to its end by any foul means. Its mother, a poor Irish wo man. not having the means to provide a coffin, had buried it in the fragment of a cradle which, with other circumstances had occasioned some surmises. An inquest will be held on the body. An Excursion.?We learn that George Mat tingly, Esq., in behalf of the Southern Steamboat Company, has invited the Mayor, Councils, and other officers of the Corporation of Washington to an excursion down the river, to start from the new wharf, foot of O street south, on Tuesday next, at ft# o'clock n. m., provided with an ex cellent band of music and refreshments for the ample entertainment of the excursionists. Election of Officers.?At a regular meet ing of the Washington Atheneum, last night, the following gentlemen were chosen officers of the Association for the ensuing term : President, J no. N. Oliver; Vice President, Benjamin B Foster; Secretary, F. Renahan; Assistant Secretary, W. C. Murdoch; Financial Secretary, Jas. H Reed ; Treasurer, T J. D. Beck. Geese and Duces.?John Davis and Benjamin Thorn, boys, were arrested yesterday by Officer King, on a charge of stealing geese and duck?, the property of John Miller. They were dis missed t>y Justice Ilollingshead. Benj. Luckett was arrested upon a similar charge ; but, for want of evidence, was dismissed by Justice Walter. Mcxdei'i May Festival No. 3.?Among the beautiful performances at Munder's second festi val on Tuesday night were those of the Misses Dunnington, Miss Florence Carter. Miss Alabama | Clare, and the t^ueen. Miss M.Sheckels. The Masters Callan and Towers also performed their parts to the especial admiration of the assem blage. Alarm.?Between band 10 o'clock last night an alarm of fire was created, which spread through th?- city in a few minuUs. and caused a rush of the firemen and others towards the eastern part of the city. The alarm appears to have been occasioned by the burning of brush. I I.i the Court of Claims, since our last issue, Mr Blair ha* concluded hi* argument for the liovernment in the case of Jonas P. Levy, and Mr Reverdy Johnson closed on behalf of the claimant, and the case was submitted. Sale of the National Hotel Furniture ? By the advertisement in another column it will be seen that the furniture of the National Hotel, comprising the complete fittings up of some four hundred rooms, will be sold at auction by J.
