local intelligence. A NlTIO^iL jKUlClVlAT WabHISuTOM ? The subject of the establishment of such an in stitution?all thing* are Institutions " now a' day**'?Is attracting even more attention among turfites abroad t ban at home, as much as It is dis cussed among our friends prone to be seen of afternoon* behind fast 'unit far out on Fourteenth street A correspondent of ?' Porter's Spirit of the Tinie*"* places the snbject in a light wherein It shonld command attention from all here?as follow*: " D P." O* A XATtOSAL JOCMT CLC? AT WASH I*GTOX. W.vsBisaro* City, Oct. 19. Gkxti.kmkx : Public attention has been fre quently directed to the importance of having a *? Jockey Clnb"' established at this place XV bet her we shall succeed in gettlngone, Is rather problematical; but ! sincerely hope we never shall have an institution of that kina unless it be one of the very first class. Let us have no Jockey Club at all unless we caa have such a one as would !>e creditable to tho nation, and a proml neut embellishment of the Federal .Metropolis. Having long ago most reluctantly abandoned all hope of ever seeing such a club here, I ven tured to advocate the early establishment of a well regulated racing organization at Richmond And I must now say, in all candor, that my only hope, in that regard, still lingers around that time-honored racing locality. But I am, nevertheless, confident that w? have la this cltv and its vicinity all the materials requisite for sncli '? a Jockey Club*' as I* impera tively demanded by the Spirit of the Times. It may tie of rather questionable propriety to use the names of distinguished gentlemen in this couuertion; but a* it has been already done by others. 1 feel impelled to follow the example, for once only. If such gentlemen as Col. W. W Core ran, Gen. George Gibson. Benjamin Ogle Tayloe, Esq , and other prominent re*idents in private life.and ?otters of vreat otfii ial distinction. would take the matter iu hand. we would very soon have a Club the like of which has never existed in this coun try. 1 do not mean that the whole burden of the undertaking should fall upou their shoulders They would at once attract powerful and most 4oogeaiat auxiliaries by scores and hundreds. The very title of the accomplished and wealthy circles of Maryland and Virginia would come to their aid. and by their counsels and contributions make th? whole euterprl.se anything hut burden some or oppressive. Should a meeting of such gentlemen ever l>e in vited. thev could not do a better thing than to consult I h living. Esq , of South Carolina He could give them suggestions and advice that would be absolutely invaluable. Indeed, if he would consent to take the position, they could not do a better thing than to make hiin their perma nent Serretary, tocouduct their correspondence, and to have charge of all matters of detail, and the curreiit and constantly accumulating business Of theClnb placed in his experienced and accom plished hands He would preserve its affairs in a sonnd and intelligible condition, and keep the Association out of a world of trouble. It must be kept in mind that 1 am talking about 4,a national institution," of real magni tude, of enduring basis, and to be inherently and exclusively under thecontrolof grntltmin. Such a Club would require a capital of uot less than fifty thousand dollars to begin with A suitable tract of land would have to be purchas ed, and graded projwrly. There must be an ap propriate cluli-bouse. public and private stands, a::d all such fixtures and appointments as would conduce to the comfort, and comport with the presence of thousands of refined ladies and ac complished gentlemen. Vulgarity and ruffian ism would, of course, be excluded from the in cioaure. and no scene* permitted that could shock parity or taste. What would be the results of such an institu tion as that? One great point gained would be legitimate horse-racing. Taking, it for granted ttML4Le purses and stakes would I* of the most attractive character, we would have contending nags of the best blood and speed from ail the ra ciifj regions of the I'nited States. At each of these race meetings, we should have in this city, on a week's visit, not less than five thousand strangers of wvalth and respectability. How much money would such a congregation as that leave in the pockets of the people of this metro polis.' Certainly not less than ?50.UM); and how much more, "the tall son of York" alone can tell. How much money could the .Messrs. Brown and the Messrs. Willard afford to subscribe to an institution which would cram their mammoth hotels with ladle* and gentlemen of the very first class* How much could our prominent mer chants subscribe, when, at least once or twice a year, their stores would be aim *t emptied by the ? ash demands of thousands of strangers from the contiguous ncighliorboods. IIow many people do you think could lie con gregated in Washington, on the occasion of a match race of four miles and repeat, between two of the l?est nags to be chosen in England and the I nited states? fifty thousand atrungers, of the right grit, would swarm in upon ns and leave twice as many dollars behind them. Does any body wish a letter paying institution than that* Everybody knows that great national matches a>e now absolutely unavoidable. The war has 1-eguu. I u to this time it has been nothing but American defeats. That very fact will only give rcuewed vigor and Intensity of determination to the American forces. The result will be the es tablishment of a |?ermanent American stable in England, and a permanent British stable in the United States. In this chivairic and noble con tention the population of both countries will in tensely sympathize: and we shall have snch rac ing excitements as the world has never yet be held. We shall have r? se; ie? of return matches, ai.d a sncre^sion of victories and defeats, until legitimate horse-racing shall become, as it ought to be, one of the most glorious American institu tions Seeing all these things, as I certainly do, 1 must vet < autTidiy confess that I see not even one tayof ti.ipe that iA' ?? timat American J??ckey Club*' will be located within fifty miles of Washington city* You may readily admit that innumerable local, so> national, and even political consid eration Indicate this as ike spot where these great ? ontoU should < ome ofl', but they are all power less in its behalf. it is immaterial how much glorious sport we would enjoy, or how much bard money We would make bv having the Club here; it i.s little less than fatuity to hope for it. D. P. Tan River ?The duck season comes on apace. The gunners about the Long Bridge begin to do quite a flourishing business, bringing up every d iy fine specimens of excellent river fowl. Yes te,day, Cap! Stewart had the good luck to take in the course of the day's sho. ting several pairs of s ijierior can vas backs, together with a Targe ii'imlier of blue wing. Arrived at Riley's wharf schooner Joanna, Hand, Phil id -lp.iia, 175 tons coal for Warder A Stewart. At Alexandria, the ship Zephyr, Capt King, is ne.,rlv ready L?r clearance. She will be hauled out into the stream on Monday next, and will be tow-d down the river by the steamtug Guy She goe* to New Orleans. The boats miming between Washington and Alexaod:ia are very much annoyed by IkiimIs of rowdies who p?aa d*ilv lietween the two cities Ea'ly this wet w a pa;ty of five nice young men weut f.om our city lo Alexandria on the Page, and took a turn through the Alexandria market, \* here th?*y purchased a l<rge piece of raw beef, which they cut into slices and came on board rating like so many savages. The engineer sug gested to thcru that the lunch would be much more palatable if thev were to cook it a little; srhereupou he was taken up very sharply by the party, who advised blm tu eat his meat as he lik?*d if and not interfere with their in<>deof feed ing The engineer, observing demonstrations of a hostile character about them, **came down " It is supposed they eat their meat raw thus, after the fa?b;ou of prize fighters, to " Improve their !uu*? le.*' The operations on the Washington and Alex andra Railroad are going on kwiftly under the auspice* of Col French We learn to-day that the track has l>een all relayed, except about a mile, which will be completed so as to allow the passage of trains in aiiout fifteen days. The road is to be in first rate order, and it Is expected that a brisk travel will, during the coming winter, re|>ay the h*-avy outlay which has been occasioned by the rcpaiis. ? What it Costs to Ktitr a Dog?Justice Mc K?*nna, of the Fifth district, deserves a gold medal for his rigid enforcement of the dog law The reeord for the past few days show the fol lowing cases of persons fined: Charles Hicks, for harboring a doo without pay ing a license tbrrefor; being the lowest amount within the law, fined. $5 5h Tobias Simpson 5 5h Beu Newton ... 5M James Gunt 5 58 James Howard i5 M.

Ofr Uoxbat irnus, Novemlier*. the United Clnb, eoinposrd of a fine, gentlemanly set of youag fellows, gives its first annual ball at Island Hall Srhad does tlx* catering Look out for the ball of the United Club A N?m to Co!mirs Br ?Whether Justly or injustly the new Are company known an the 'States Hon**," I?eai4 a particularly hard name about town, we have beard of a rather amusing Illustration of the terrorism prevailing in regard to It: The other day a German friend of our*~-? right good fellow, but who looks a long time at his inonev before spending It foolishly?was ap proached in his restaorant by a young man, with the remark? "I would lik?, sir, to sell you a ticket for our ball '? "Nein ? Neln! I don't got no money to give away?don't never go to der balls !>? "But," persisted the yonng 'an, "I reckon you'll help the States Hose, won't yon?" A change came over the face of the Teutonic Boniface ''Oh! der Staats Hose,'' he gasped, dropping his hand into his pocket the same tune, "oh. yes, I help der Staats Hose ?" and the dol lar far a ticket was fished np and passed over with the greatest promptness He says, though, he "didn t go to der ball for all dat!" The Gajhj of Pickpocket* spoken of >? the Star, a few days since, as having passed through Washington on their way to Richmond, seem to be reaping a rich harvest in that city. The Rich mond Dispatch says that on Wednesday Col. Eppea, et Petersburg, had his pocket picked of at the Fair. A lady lost her porteuionnaie, and a gentleman's pocket, containing S050, was cut out by a thief in the crowd outside of the grounds. A young man. who registered bis name as Cbas Cornell, from Washington, was detected on Wednesday niubt. at the Central Hotel, iu the act of picking the pocket of Mr. Jesse Bond ley, of Goochland county. After disgorging his plunder, he was taken to the upper station house. Real Estate.?On Tuesday, A.

Smith. On Thursday, by the same, Lots D and E, in square No 33?, on Tenth, between P streets and It node Island avenue, for 12 cents per foot, to T. Putney. Lot 3, in square 7S1, for 12 cents per foot, to Timothy McCarthy. J. C.

A Number of vagabond pedlars are hawking their trash about town, and the unwary need a remiuder lest they get victimized in purchasing ??at a bargain " One of these fellows called at the honse of Mr. T. J . Forrest, a day ortwosince, stating thai he had been sent there by a neighbor to sell some of his stove varnish. M s. Forrest then stnt to enquire of the neighbor if she would recommend the varnish, and the reply was that the man was an impostor, as he had not been seen there. The scamp vented hi* rage at being detected, in a tiiade of abu?e, and left to seek other fit-Ids of operation. Fines for Pkofajtl* Language.?'The old law of Maryland requires all magistrates to impose a fine on any person giving utterance to profane language in their presence; the fines thus im posed to be collected, and paid over to the Levy Court. It would seem that the provision of the law has been very much neglected heretofore, but the treasurer of the Levy Court (N. Callan, E^q ,) received yesterday Irom Justice John H Clark, the sum of six dollars thus collected, which that gentleman has very promptly paid over to the proper depository. Street Improvement.?A five-foot sewer is being constructed in Thirteenth street, from G to the main sewer in E, under the direction of the Street Commissioner. The ground was opened on last Tuesday, and considerable progress has been made already with the excavation, The sum of S3,>10(1. we believe, was appropriated for this work, and it will require a similar appro priation to complete it. Di?r?ARr,KD.?Yesterday, Matilda Smith, eol ored, who some days ago was arrested by Officer Suit as a fugitive slave, and committed to jail, was discharged by Justice Smith, she having given bond for her apiiearance at the Circuit Court on her petition for freedom. She is the same who was at the North for al>out five years, and was arrested by the officer on her return. Goxe to Work.?This morning seven of those strangers, who have been stopping at the guard house during a week past, on the pretence that they intended leaving the c.itv immediately if they couldn't tiud work, were sent to the work house for ninety days each, as vagrauts. Bt the fiie, yesterday, at C. W. Mitchell's Coal Olfif-e, the books of Mr. W. Stone were con sumed, which were deposited there while Mr. S. was settling his late business.
