LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CiiMintL CoriT.-When otir report closed on Saturday the Court*was engaged in the second trial of Joseph Gerhardt for the homicide of II. Schoulte; the witnesses for the prosecution were being examined with a view to elicit, if possible, any further facts in relation to the cause* which led to the death of the unfortunate Schoulte. Nothing material, however, wm brought out, in addition to the fact* given before the court in the former trial. The evidence for the prosecution being closed the defence commenced tbeirexamination,which wan pretty nearly the same as given before. Mr Morgan called several witnesses for the de fence who bad been on the Iury in the other trial, with a view to discredit the evidence of several of the witnesses for the prosecution in confound ing their statements witn those made in the pre vious trial No material contradictions were, however, shown. The evidence for the defence was the same as that given before, with the exception of some new testimony which was otfered. Lieut. Smoir, new witness, sworn.?Belongs to the coast survey; was comiug home from his of fice about three o'clock on the day of the affray: was passing by the house of the defendant, ana saw three or four men. who were very drunk, standing on the side walk in front of Gerbardt's house; another man. apparently belonging to the i>arty, was standing in the bar-room door, and reckoning to the party outside to come in and pay for their drinks; they were swearing that ttiey had paid; witness thought they were In a ripe state for a spree and avoided them in pass ing. going ont near the edge of the pavement, to ?pass as far from them as it was possible; got s.-Hie ninety feet by this house, and saw acolored man, who was calling to some companion beyond the party; he was naturally looking towards the drunken party, as the man he was railing to was beyond them; witness thought to stop the negro, thinking that if he went by the party, who were ready to pitch into any one, they would attack him; the negro did not hear witness tell him to stop, but witness looked to see the attack, which he was sure would be made; he was not mista ken; the party caught the negro as he was pass ing by and tieat him shamefully, striking aiul kx king him in a brutal and shameful manner. Witness then passed on, and when he got over the canal bridge, going from the place, he heard the report of a pistol; uid not go bark to see what was done; thought it was natural, from the state the parties were in, that pistols would be tired. Tnis was all the ncwevidence presented by the defence, and the case was closed Mr. Key, for the prosecution, addressed the jury at some length and with great ability, en deavoring to impress upon the ntiuds of the jury the alleged fact tnat the tiriug 011 the part of the defendant wan not in self-defence; that the evi dence of the defence, going to snow justliable shooting 011 his part, was not sufficiently clear in his mind, and was not, he felt sure, in the tuind of the jury to justify an acquittal. Mr. Key wus followed by Mr. Morgan for the defence, who made a warm appeal to the jury in behalf of the defendant, and or the position in which he found himself, for having vindicated his honor and the sacred rights of his household against a mob of riotous aud frenzied men. wlio bad att: ?korf'with brutal and murderous malice the wife of his bosoin. and by so doing had caus. ed the untimely death of the defendant's friend and companion. Mr. M. contended that there could never be a clearer case of justiliable homi cide than this, and asked at the hands of the jury the verdict which should send his client back to his family. Mr. M closed, and Mr. Key stated that he had said all that he Intended to say upon the matter, and stated to the jury that it was their duty to bring in a veidict of some kind, that the court expected them todo so, and urged upon them the necessity of trying to come loan agreement in the case. The case was then given to the jury, who re tired to consider upon their verdict. The court transacted some unimportant busi ness, and finally adjourned, nothing in the mean time having been.heard fiom the absent jury. This morning the Court met at the usual hour. The iury in the case Jos. Gerhardt brought in a sealed verdict of not guilty. The Court then took up the case of John Kelly, charged with assault and battery on Thos. Thorn on the 7th day of July, 1337. Verdict, not guilty. The Court then took up the case of Thomas Harper, indicted for larceny, in two cases, of di vers articles cf goods, the property of I.ewis Paine and Thomas T. Sparrow. 011 the'1st day of July, 1*57 Verdict, not guilty. The next case which came up was that of Eliz abeth Fddin^ton, alias Edinburg. (free colored.) charged with ? assault and battery on Adeline Smith (also colored) on theitth day of June last. Adeline Smith testified that on the day in ques tion she sent her son Abraham Smith to the ta kers. and soon afterwards she heard Abraham scream; she ran out and saw the defendant beat ing him; she then ran up aud caught the defend ant. and asked her why she did not come to her (witness) and not beat the child; the defendant leplied that she had a right to beat the child for it had struck her'child; witness replied that had it not l>een that the Lord had changed her soul ^ ?he would seraph the defendant under her feet; that the defendant then struck and bit witness 011 the wrist and beat her in the face Rebecca Thome was sworn for the defense, and teat J if-d to the effect that the attack was com r SMSlleM by Adeline Smith; that she pushed the <t?Cetodaiit off, and then the defendant struck Ade t * ?#;" she heard Adeliue say if the Lord had not T< eknnged her soul she would *rhru\rt the defend ant under her feet; this was about all she knew about it. The esse was given to the jury, who found a verdict of not guilty. The NoIthiix Market ?This fine little mar ket place, established for the benefit of the rcd dentsof the northern portion of thecity, basgrown considerably In importance in a short time, und*r the proper management and the energetic opera tions of the dealers who occupy stands there in . It has also become a source of revenue to the Corporation, as the Clerk's account of the annual renting of stalls on the 1st inst., will show In this market there are r.?> vegetable stalls, be * aide* accommodation* for country dealers, and 42 ~ iRItchers stalls.and these at the last renting yieldf d *? ove-J3.UW; the year previous the yield was a little over 97MJ. showing au increase in value of about S2.UUJ. Theentire annual expense to be deducted from this is Srbifi, including the Clerk's pay and the expense of cleaning the market This market is lighted with gas inside at the expense of the dealers. The sales days are Mondays. Wednesdays and Fridays, and a short market Saturday nights. The attendance is always very good, and we are assured by Mr G. D. Spencer, the excellent Clerk of the market, that the preser vation of order is so carefully attended to by all the dealers aud citizens who attend there," and who seem to delight in making it a quiet aud or derly market, that he was obliged to solicit the interference of the police in only a single instance in the past twelve months. Tut Tvrxeksaxd the Maxsxschor.?Dear reader, did you hear a play pc-formed all iu Ger man ? We did on Friday night, and were vastly entertained. not that we understood a word of what was said, but the acting was sufficiently good to give us a clue to the plot as it was evolved The "Singer Society"' opened with a beautiful chorus. 44 The Morning Greeting," by Marshuer; then came an amusing farce, 44 Humorous Stu dies," well performed by Messrs. Keinken. Wal decker, Lahayire, Ackmann. Rndenlx.-rg, Hubner and Gretchen, of the Dramatic branch of the Tur ner corps.?*0 well performed, in foet, that we could readily have supposed them to be profes sional adepts. Between the piece* the Manner chor sang "The Fatherland." after which was performed '-Our Cousin from Bremen," with the richest comic effect. Afterwards, the quar tette 4* The sun is rising' was sung so well as to demand a repetition ; and the succeeding chorus 44 My Native Mountain*," by Christian, was warmly applaud**!. The performance* concluded with the lively waltz andquadrille upon the part of the andience at large Really *0 successful ww the evening's entertainment, that we cannot well gee bow the performers can avoid favoring their friends with more of the same sort. This atf.iir. we omitted to say, took place at the Assembly Booms. The River ?With the exception of the repairs at the west end of the Long Bridge, there is nothing doing on the river. At the eastern draw things are dull enough; the draw-keepers and other people employed thereabouts are having plenty of leisure. At Gait 4 \ uunj s wharf, arrived schooner Hoxaiina, Capt Mr*?re. from. Havre-de-Grace with 1^0 tons of coal for S H. Young At same whaif. schooner Merchant, Capt Geo. Philips, Lanrell, Del with lumbei. not consigned' At Riley's wbail. schooner Wm 5 Rviand Capt l'ollejr. from Port Walthall, with^-4 (ons cf cjai for the Gas Company. The steamer Columbia landed at Riley's wharf this morning a large cargoof merchandise for the city dealers, consisting of pig iron, molasses, whisky, bacon, sugar, coffee, etc The steamer George Washington went up to Georgetown this morning to take on boaid the members of the Western Hose Company for an excursiou to the White House. Attempt to Bvr* the Cmtii Ma?e*t ? Saturday night, between 1*2 and 1 o'clock, an a - tempt was made to set fire to some stands In the t entre Market fcy placing cotton cloths l>etween the boaids and setting tire to them. The guard on duty at the Central Station, going the round of the market, saw the Hre before it had burned eoough to do damage It was extinguished With out difficulty ? Gas Light Compart ?We are requested to Mate for the benefit of our readers who own stock fn this Company, that the semi-annual dividend of five per ceut. will be paid on Jind after the 15tb inst , jut usnal. at the offit e of the Gas Light Company, No 514 Eleventh street Ox Wib!tt<Mt next, remember, the Still Cub start on their excursion to Lconurdtown. Pwieptng Machine.?At lOo'clock this morn* Ing a trial of King & Hyneman's street sweeping machine was made on the avenue, opposite the Centre Market. Quite a number of property owners, merchants and others were present to witness the trial, which clearly proved the rattle of the invention and its adaptation to the pur poses proposed. The proprietors expected that the street would hare been sprinkled In the morning in order that there should be as liule dust as possible. They engaged horses and dri vers, and expected that the harness would have been sufficient for the purpose ; but the trial was interrupted by the breaking of the harness, it being old and unfit for the work; and the street was dry and consequently the brushes stirred up considerable dust. It was evident that the ma chine can dc the work, and do it well. The work of street sweeping is done at night, after the merchants have closed their stores. In connection with the sweeping machine another is used for sprinkling ; that has not been brought here, but should a contract be made with the pro prietors, that will be put into operation also. The trial, notwithstanding the unfavorable circum stances. seemed to satisfy those who witnessed it that machines of that kind could be employed ad vantageously upon the paved streets in Washing ton. As we write the proprietors are awaiting the arrival of a better set of narness. It was expected that Mr. Hyneman, one of the patentees, would lie in Washington to superin tend the trial, but he did not arrive. Robbkrt and Arrest.?About 2 o'clock Sun day morning, information was given to Captain Mills of the suspicious movements of an indi vidual seen lurking in the passage under the Dexter House, leading from Seventh to Eighth street. Capt. Mills and Officer Wollard started in pursuit of this person, and traced him to an upper room of an unoccupied house in the rear of the 44 Arcade," on D street, between Eighth and Ninth, whvre the suspected party was arrested, and with him was found JPvilO worth of goods, cassiineres, silks. &c., stolen from the store of R. W. Carter. In the thief was recognized an old offender; a colored man named John Butler alia% John Wil liams. He was taken before Justice Wanyh, who committed him for a further hearing before Justice Smith. Butler has been in the hands of Captain Mills on two previous occasions, once for breaking into the Dexter House, and recently for assaulting and beating a boy. Mr. Carter is unable to ascertain the exact amount of his loss, but supposes it to have been to the value ot double what lias been recovered. Among the goods yet missing are tine silk handkerchiefs, silk gloves, cashmere shawls, silk half hose and other valuable articles. Attempt at Suicide.?Much excitement was created al?out 11 o'clock last night, In the neigh borhood of Eighth and 1 streets, north, by the shrieks of females, and on inquiry as to the cause it was ascertained that a young man, 22 years of age, named Asbury Ueardon, a bricklayer by tiade, had attempted to end his life by taking laudanum. l)r. Uuhamcl was summoned and tin proper remedies were promptly enough applied to save the life of the youii" man. The motive for the rash deed is not known, but it is said he had previously announced his deter mination to kill himself within two weeks. Yesterday Mormxu, Rev. G. W. Sampson, of the E street Baptist Church, delivered a very impressive discourse upon the sudden decease of ex-Secretary Marcv, taking for his text Eccles. 9th chapter and 3d verse. 4' For all this I con sidered in my heart even to declare all this ; that the righteous and the wise and their woilcs are iu the bands of God; no man knowcth either love or hatred by all that is before liiin." This dis couise we believe is to be published, a general desire having been expressed to that effect. At the Distribution of Premiums at the Academy of the Visitation. Mount I)e Sales, in Baltimore, on Wednesday last, Miss Elizabeth King of this city received the second award for honsekeeping; she also received first academic honors. Awards were also made to Miss Mary Harrington, Miss Agnes Cleary, Miss Anna Mohuu, Miss Georgianna Siinms. Miss Mary Roach and Miss Julia Colt, all ot this city.

They will re main in this city during Tuesday and Wednes day. John II. Shook, Esq., a young memt?er of the bar. of Richmond, has consented to accom pany them as spokesman. Warm.?This morning, a pair of young colored individuals, by way of settling an account which had been standing between them, had a fight in the northern part of the Fourth Ward Hard knocks, a roll iu the dust, and profuse perspira tion ended the matter for the present, both of them admitting that the weather was most too warm to permit a filial settlement. The R ev>. Henry Stanley, who has lately resigned the rectorship of Ascension Church, (Episcopal.) delivered his farewell sermon yes terday morning. Baptism.?Rev. Gustavus Brown, of the Sec ond Colored Baptist Church, baptized four per sons yesterday in the waters of the Potomac.

The latest news from Mr. Stone, the superin tendent of the work of repair upon canal dain No. 5, is that the work will be sufficiently advanced for the letting on the water and the passage of boats, about the'Aith inst. Not so, however, with some other portions, the culvert near Berlin has. we learn, again been carried away or seriously damaged. which will tend to prevent the re sumption of navigation for some leu days to two weeks. The steamer George Washington left here this morning with the Western Hose Company and a large number of excursionists, en route to the White House Pavilion to spend the day. To morrow afternoon the exhibition of the se nior department of the male department of the Georgetown 'school, under the airection of Mr. W H. Craig, comes olf at Forrest Hall.

I state<l that 1 would convince any man who would apply to ma for the tacts, that a most vilianous im position has been carried on lu tbis citv and other tlaoes, where certain Liglitning-n?d Points hare een out up. That the Points referred to were coin posiHi of some soft alloy, resembling pewter, aud which melts at the temperature of lead. Mr. J. B. Olcott takes it upon himself t<> answer to the above facts, and says he does Hot pnt up Pewter Points. It is a truthful say iug, that "murder will out," and, unfortunately, for this Mr. O. has told on himself. And, like Jill in the old ditty, when Jack fell down and broke hi* head, he in a fright made a misstep ami came tumbling after. He certainly cannot blame me for ins tiad luck, for I had not said one word aUiut hiin ; and if he never puts up another rod, it will In) iiecuuse he has defined his position, and not on account of any exposure from me. My Circular refers to no one in particular; but if the coat ahoald fat any one let turn put it on. j} 10-3t ,N, H. RHOAIW, 4591> Itreet, I AUCTION SALE8. TO-DAY fr TO-MORROW MORNING.
