LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ThkOiisisal Pla* or Wasmixotox Citt. In the extensive and curious collection of Col Force, is a file of the old " Gazette of the United States," published in Philadelphia. and through his kindness *f are euable-d togive tbefollowing article of interest in relation to the early history of the city It is from the Gazette of Jan. I, 17ft!: yeie City ?/ Waik**gto?. The following description is annexed to the plan of the City of Washington, in the IHstrict of Columbia, as sent to Congress by the President some days ago: Plan of the city intended for the permanent seat of t!i?* Government of the United states, pro jected agreeably to the direction of the Presi dent of the Uuited states, in pursuance of an Act of Congress passed on the l(?th of July. 17SH?, ?? establishing the permanent seat on the banks of the Potowmack."' By Peter Charles L'En fant. Observation^ Explanatory of the Plan. I. Tn<! position* of the different grand edifice*, and for the several grand squares or areas of dif ferent shapes as they are lain down, were first de termined on the most advantageous ground, com manding the most extensive prospects, and the better susceptible of such improvements as the various interests of the several objects may re quire. II. Lines or avenues of direct communication have been devised to connect the separate and most distant objects with the principals, and to preserve throughout the whole a reciprocity of sight at the same time. Attention has been paid | to tbe pasting of ihose leading avenues over the most favorable ground for prospect and conveni ence. 111 North and south lines intersected by others ruuning d.ie east and west, make the distribution cf the city into streets, squares, Ac., and those liaes have been so combined as to meet at certain given points with those diverging avenues so as to form on the spaces '? first determined" the dif ferent sqnnres or areas, which ye all proportioned in magn itude to the number of avenues leading to then. BrtadtK of the Streets. Every grand transverse avenue, andeven^prin eipal divergent one?such as the communication from the President's house to the Congress house, &.c., are 100 feet la breadth, and thus divided : Feet. 10 feet foe pavement on each side is tit) 30 '* of gravel walk, planted with trees on each side <>') w in the middle for carriage so 160 The other street* are of the following dimen sions, Tiz: Those leading to the public buildings or mar ket* 130 Others 110?P0 Tn order to execute the above plan, Mr. Ellicott drew a true meridian line by celestial observa tion, which passes through the area intended for the Congress house; this~line be crossed by ano ther du?? east and west, and which passes through the same area. These lines were accurately mea sured and made the basis on which the whole plan was executed. He ran all the lines by a transit instrument, and determined the acute an gles by actual measurement, and left nothing to the uncertainty of the compass. Reference*. A The equestrian figure of George Washing ton. a monument voted iu 17S1 by the late Conti nental Oougress. B. An historic column?also intended for a mile or itinerary column, from whose station (at a mile from the'Federal house) all distances and pi ices through the Contiueut are to be calculated C. A Naval Itinerary column, proposed to l>e erected to celebrate the first rise of a Navy, trtid to stand a ready monument to perpetuate its pro gress and arnievements * D. A Church intended for national purposes, such as public prayer, thanksgivings, funeral orations, Ac., and assigned to the special use of no particular sect or denomination, but equally open to all. It will likewise be a proper shelter for such monuments as were voted by the late Continental Congress, for those heroes who fell in the cause of liberty, and for such others as may hereafter be decreed by the voice of a grateful na tion. E. E, E, E, E. Five grand fountains, intended with a constant spout of water. N . B ?There are within the limit* of the springs twenty-five good springs of excellent water, abundantly supplied in the driest season of the year F A Grand cascade formed of the waters of the sources of the Tiber G. G. Public walk, being a square of 1 ,'JtiC' feet, through which carriages may ascend to the upper square of the Federal House. H A grand avenue. 4<*> feet in breadth and alioutainile in length, bordered with gardens ending in a slope from the houses on e? h side; this avenue leads to the monument A, and con nects the Congress garden with the I President's park, and the K Well impioved field, being a part of the walk from the President's house of about 1,*<U0 feet in breadth and three-fourths of mile in length. Every lot deep colored red, with green plats, des ignating some of the situations which command the most agreeable prospects. and which are b calculated for spacious nouses and gardens, such as may accommodate foreign ministers, Ac. L. Around this square, and along the M Av? nue from the two bndges to the Federal House, the pavements on each side will pass under an arch*d way, nnde' whose cover shops will be most conveniently and agreeably situated; this street is 106 feet in breadth and a mile long. Tb? llfteeu squares colored yellow arc pro|?osed to be divided among the several States of the Union, for eat h of them to improve, or subscrilie a sum additional to the value of the land for that purpoKe. and 'he improvements round the squares to be completed iu a limited time The centre of each square will admit of statues, columns, obelisks, or anv other oinamwiits. such as the different states may choose to erect, to pe petuate not only the memory of such irdlviduals whose councils or military achievements were conspicuous in giving liberty and independence to this country, but those whose usefulness hath rendered them worthy of imitation, to invite the youth of succeeding generation* to tread iu the paths of those sa^e* or heroet. whom their coun tiy have thought proper to celebrate. The situation of those square* is such that they are the most advantageously seen fiom each other, and as equal!/ distributed over the whole city district, and counected by spacious avenues round the grand Federal improvements, and as contigu ous to thein. and at the same time as eq-rally dis tant from each other as circum*'ancew would ad mit. The settlements round these squares must soon become connected. The mode of taking possession of and improv ing the whole District at fl'st. must leave to pos terity a grand idea of the patriotic interest which prmnotM it. The small spaces colored are intended for the use of all religious denominations, on which they are to erect places of worship, and are proposed to be allotted to them in the manner as those col ored yellow are to the different States in the V nion; but no burying ground will be admitted within the limits of the city, an appropriation, being intended for that purpose without. N B There area number of squares or areas unappropriated, and in situations proper for col leges and academies, of which every society, whose objert i* national, may be accommodated. Every house within the city will stand square on the streets, and every lot on the divergent avenues will run square with thnir fronts on the most acute an_le; will not incisure less than C6 feet, and may well be above 110 Some of the streets running north and south and east and west are about 1.2U0 poles, and the trans verse street* l,JL0 poles Latitude of Congress House, .'t- 53 N , long. 00.

A Theatre for Washington.?Jfr. Editor: 1 he question is often asked nowadays by stran gers.visiting VVaahington why we have no thea tre; but it is never satisfactorily answered It is certainly very singular that the capitol city of a country which has made rapid progress in the fine arts, and which has produced men of the highest order of talent as musicians, painters, sc ulptors. Ac., should not have a single theatre much less an opera house, or a building devoted to the exhibition of paintings; however, 1 under stand that this last desideratum is likely to be 0,|?piifdfw long. ' e" years ago there was some apology for such a State of things, and yet a better one existed, as we bad the National and Adelphi theatres; while at ditt'erent periods before tliat time Cams!"* Saloon and the Assembly Rooms were temples of the drama. Now, however, when Washington has increased so much in population, and when there is mare wealth among her citizens, we have nothing of the kind. Apropos of this, I would remark that the change is not from any improve ment in the city morals, as old inhabitants of the place will bear me out in saying; but it p o< eeds from other causes I hope not from a want of ap preeiation of the drama. This winter, doubtless, we shall have the tal ented raniairtce, Miss Juliana May, with us; but should she desire to app?yr in opera in her native city, and supported by an opera troupe, there woind be no building suitable for their perform ances And vet a theatre of the proper dimen sions for \\ ashington. which I imagine would be of about the size of Burton's, in New York, (not an immense barn like the old National, nor a chicken-coop like the Adelphi,) could be erected at moderate expense, somewhere upon or near the Avenue. Indeed, it is not even necessary to do this, as s< m ^ of the buildings which we tUnnly have might easily 1* altered to suit theatrical purposes, the one called the Assembly Rooms for instance, which was erected for a theatre, and the location of which is tolerably good, would answer very well, if the two stories w-ee thrown Into one, as was the case originally. F Military.?It Is the intention, as we have already stated, of the National Grays, second company of the regiment of volunteers, as at pres ent organized, to change their uniform, but the organization will remain as before. This corps is next in age to the Washington Light Infantry and when tir>.t organized was commanded by Capt Doughty, and was called the Washington 1,!tv fiuard. iirid the uniform was very costly and beautiful. The corps was afterwards uatned the National Blues, and was commanded by Capt L J Middleton, then by Capt. F A Tucker, next by Capt. P. F. Bacon During the latter's term the uniform was changed, and the corps named the National Grays. Capt. Bacon resigned, and the command was given to Capt. L Towers, the present commander. The corps expects to make their next parade with increased ranks and in their new unifo'in. Oi'i friend; residing on the Island in the re gion of Twelfth st.cel. complain of the way the west side of that street Is appropriated by the drl\ersof fast horses, and coal carts, Instead of the paved street, which is the proper driving ground. They iirmiy believe that the west foot way from the canal along the public souare, was constructed for the use of foot passengers, and they cannot understand why it has become the common property of the drivers of the aforesaid horses and carts. Yesterday evening the stream of carriages which went racing down the foot way thereabouts, caused no little consternation to several females, who were obliged to take the middle of the street to avoid being run over. The complainants ask us to call the attention of the jio!ice to these facts, and ask them to see that the quiet passengers, who cannot afford horses as a means of locomotion, have the privilege of en joying their walks with less peril.

Pendleton, last night, J The Tc??.?The first race over the new court* ?t Jackson City cams off yesterday afternoon In the presence of an Immense throng of spectators. The crowd began to assemble soon after 18 o'clock, m., and the stream of carriages and foot passen Long Bridge was continuous and augmented up to 4 o'clock, p m. course was heavy from recent laying down out well suited otherwise to the wants of the sporting public, though rather too narrow for more than three horses in carriages. The spec tators, on arriving at the grounds, mostly settled themselves around the judges7 stand, from which, o!i a line stretched across over the track to the spectator's stand, wa? suspended two silver cups, the prizes to be contended for. The contestants for the first cups were Buffalo, entered by J.Cook; Winzer, by H Birch; and bay colt Fanny, by J. Price, of Alexandria. At hair-past three o'clock, the horses came on the ground, their blankets were thrown off, and they were trotted up and down the track by stable boy*, while the jnd^r* were busily in their stand in drawing lots for iiosition of the horses on the track. The result of the drawing gave the W inzer colt the inside tf\ck, the bay Fanny the next, and Buffalo the outside The first effort at a start failed on account of Bufialo, who behaved somewhat obstreperously. The second trial was similar to the first, except that the colt Fanny would not wait for the word to go, but insisted on disregarding all rules of racing propriety, and daahed forward several lengths ahead Her driver brought her up; and, the third efl'ort proving more successful, tne start was made amid the cries of the crowd, to "Stop, K?> g? on, stop," Sc.c. The .race was mile heats, and the best in three to pull down the cup. The horses were off, Fanny taking the lead, and Buf falo close behind her, while W inzer came close on Bufialo Bufialo soon broke up. and Winzer passed him, flying, and bore hard on Fanny, who continued to stick to her pace, without evincing the slightest disposition to break. Winzer and Buffalo broke frequently on the out-stretch, and could not be got down until Fanny had passed over the first half mile, and was turning into the homestretch; then both Winzer and Butfalo came well up to the scratch, doing their best to recover the ground they had lost; but it was too late, and Fanny came past the stand, furiously fast, some ui/,yar<*M n advauceof Winzer, and leaving Buffalo who Lad got into a hard gallop soon after striking the home-stretch?some eighty yards In the rear. The judges gave the heat to ranny?time. 3 minutes t> seconds. The second heat the horses all got a fair start, and were near neighbors during the first half of the heat, but Fanny led off beautifully, and bets on her were frequent and heavy; she seemed from this moment to be the favorite, and she kept her pace steadily, never breaking up once, while Bufialo, who is very hard to beat when he can be kept down to his work, was breaking frequently, and was passed again on the home stretch by Y\ inzer, who came up pretty close on Fanny. The second heat was finished up in three minutes and nine seconds, Fanny being the winner by about the same distance as on the previous heat 1 he judges awarded the first prize to Fanny, making the two Leats in seven minutes and fif teen seconds. It is impossible to judge of the qualities of a horse over such a road as the new track, as all three of the horses entered would have made, on any well-beaten track, much better time. The second race was made in road wagons, two mile heats and repeat. The horses entered were Old Buck, entered by lieo. Smith ; Bufialo by Allen Dorsey; Sea Breeze by J, Cook; ami Henry by W K. Cleaver. 3 The judges drew for position, and Sea Breeze got the inside, Henry second, Bufialo third, and Oid Buck fourth. The horses were In better training, and the drivers had more control over them than durin" the first race. They were called up and came past the track in good condition, Buffalo about one length behind, but reaching out well, and several heavy bets were made upon him The horses, for the first quarter of a mile kept well together, Sea Breeze taking the had, and Old Buck pushing him hard, while Henry and Buffa lo were well up in the rear. Soon, however, the two latter hoises broke, Bufialo l>ehaving very badly, and giving his driver considerable trouble. Henry was managed more easily, being brou?bt down soon, but not until S?-a Bieezc and Old Buck were past the first half, with Sea Breeze still leading. The contest for the first mile was now between the last two horses, and it was de cided in favor of Sea Breeze, who never broke her pace, while Old Buck on the home stretch went ott again and could not be brou,rht down to his work until Sea Breeze was pas? the stand. The first mile was done by Sea Breeze in U: la and the second mile was pretty much the same thin.', Sea Breeze keening the lead and making the round in 3:11. The first heat was given to Sea Breeze?time 6:5<?. After some twenty minutes the horses were called up for the second heat. The start was a very fine one, Sea Breeze leading oft again, with Old Buck nearly up with hnu; Henry and Buffalo falling back soon after the first quarter was passed which position they held for the remainder of the heat. Bufialo broke up again, as usual, and Hen ry wtnt by him before the home stretih was reached. Sea Breeze and Old Buck reached the home stretch together, but Old Buck soon after broke badly, and Sea Breeze came past the stand some forty yards in advance, and made the heat in 6:40. Sea Breeze received the cup amid the loud ap plause of the crowd, and the race was over. Con siderable money exchanged hands during the af ternoon. After the crowd had partly dispersed a small race was run by a well known butter merchant of Washington, assisted by a certain newspaper re porter, and a Pennsylvania Dutchman. The par ties started very fair in a heavy carryall?weight of carriage and the three drivers 73<J lbs. The mile was made in nineteen minutes and three seconds. Old Pennsylvania never breaking his fast walk during the drive, notwithstanding the application of sundry frequent and well bestowed cuts with a cooked bean pole from an adjoining corn-field, and sundry deep and earnest anathemas applied to his carcase generally. Washington Inscra.nik Company. ? The stockholders of this Company, on Monday las', manifested their confidence in the management of its attaint by re-electing all the members of the old Board of Directors. The President and Sec retary were also re-elected at the meeting of the Board the next day. Congress, in granting a charter to this compa ny, introduced in it a clause making the private fortunes of the stockholders liable for all debrs that should be created by the Cor|x>ratiou. The o|ieralion of this is to add immensely to the se curity of those holding their policies, as the stockholders numlier among tnem some of our most successful and wealthy merchants, mechan ics, and others.
