LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tai Teachers' Associarioi.?After our re port closed Saturday, it wm? Rtsolred. That a convention of th? teachers of the District be held on Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday morning, 'December l?th, IWth and 19th. That the convention organize with chairman and secretary ou Thursday night, and have a lec ture. with the leport of the committee on the city school statistic*. That on Friday there be a discussion on the condition and demands of the cause of education In this District from 7 to II o'clock a in ; at It o'clock a. m ,a lecture; to he followed by a dis cussion. That on Friday night there be a lecture, with a discussion. Tbnf on Satnrday, at 9 o'clock a. m , there be a discussion on the teacher's profession, and on the National Teachers' Association ; at II a. m., a lecture, with a discussion. This report was adopted, and the committee continued for further action. it was stated by members of the committee that arrangement* were being made with several dis tinguished gentlemen for lectures on the occasion of ttui convention. Mr. Loom is, from the proper committe, an nounced that, at the next regular meeting of the association, the president. Mr O C. Wight, would read an es*ay on ' The mutual relations, duties and the obligations of teachers and pa rents." On motion, the association adjourned to meet again ou the first Saturday of December. Rowdtisw Rahpaxt.?The services of the police are imperatively required about the wharf, at the fo<>t of Seventh street, occupied by the George Page. Not long since we had occasion to record a shooting affair there, and so soon again it is our duty to ?all the attention of the city authorities to conduct there equally repre hensible. On Friday evening last, while the Page wu at the wharf waiting for the mail and through passengers, an individual, said to be named T. Thomas, and to be the keeper of a drinking house in the vicinity, was parading in front of the boat's pier, cursing, swearing and threatening lit kill the Captain or any one else belonging to tbe boat who should dare to put foot on shore. We learned on the boat that the Canta-n had collected fare or toll fiom three indi viduals who were in company with this man. on a previous trip, in the course of the day. from Alexandria He wxs evidently intoxicated, and piepared to essay to carry out his threat had Capt Price left the boat. U is the imperative duty of the police to keep a sharp look out at that landing, more especially while the boat's last trip continues to be made after dark; for landing at an out-of-the-way point and being the last steamboat trip made from Al exandria m the course of thejday, ii now rarely happens tLat the Page fails to bring back to Wash ington at 7 p. in., more or less drunken and des perate rowdies returning from annoying our neighbors of Alexandria The Police.?Having l>een onrself a witness to the facts set forth in the following communica tion. we cheerfully add our testimony to that of the unknown writer.?Ep. Mr. Ei/itor: As the sins of omission on the part of our police have, for some time past, lieeu most wantonly paraded before the public, it be comes an agreeable duty to record an instance which, coming under our personal observation, more than satisfied us of their promptness and efficiency. We allude to the occasion of the re turns of the Baltimore election on Wednesday night last. From intimations received durini; the day. and from the conduct and liearing of some of the characters who composed the crowd assembled at and al>out the corner of the National Hotel on that night, we were lead to fear a most serious disturbance We found the police in full force, and active, vigilant and determined. The first symptoms of disorder weie at once sup pressed,?and suppressed with a promptness and decision which, doubtless, intimidated the row die* who were eager for a muss." Hence it was the night passed ?IT quietly, and the crowd dispersed without riot or serious disorder. A feeling of justice prompts me to give this testimonial, and the same feeling will, I hope, induce you to give it a place in the Star, with a request that the Charleston .Mercury should copy.

Circuit Cocrt ?The case of Jones rt. Der mott still occupies the Court The examination of tbe witnesses is drawing to a close, to the great joy of all concerned. It is probable that tbe case will !* closed and ready for argument during the present week. This morning,ou opening the Court, Mr. Cbas. Lee Jones, on leave, presented the case of John A Menekeim e*.

Assault .?The rowdies appear to have changed their field of operations to the out skirts of the city, with tbe ex pet tat ion of com mitting their cowardly and brutal acts with im punity, out of reach of tbe officers. Yesterday afteruoon. a gang of rowdies attacked the dwell ing of a German family near Pierce's mill, throw ing stones and filing pistols into the house. One of the occupants (a German) was wounded in the leg With a bail. Officers Suit, Mcllenry and Ross, after a long run. came in sight of tbe gang, who fletf as soon a> they saw tbe offirers.

A Virginias Victimized.?On Saturday, a gentleman from Virginia met with a young mm of pleasing address, and an acquaintance havintj somehow sprung up between tbein, they took a walk together to the Capitol grounds. While there a well dressed person approached them and exhibited a curiously constructed box. and in short proceeded to try on the old trick a/ the " box game." The Virginian gentleman's companion Inti mated to him. in a whisper, that he knew the secret of the box, and proceeded to offer a bet to the owner that he could open It. He offered a draft of S3U0 as a stake.. This draft the l>ox holder declined accepting as a stake, and moved off Tbe Virginian's friend then urged him to loan him S*.}0 to bet, 4?Mt bein*^ a dead-sure thing,' and be would repay him at the hotel.

The eighteenth annual meeting of (be Female Union Benevolent Society, was held In Bridge street Presbyterian Church, yesterday afternoon. The annual report of the Society was read by the Rev. H. Suter The report is one of considerable Interest not only to the Society, but the commu nity at large. The author, Miss Hellen L. Stew art, seems to be perfectly familiar with all the past operations of the Society, and to be fully alive to the many difficulties to be encountered In their labors of love, in the future. She dis cusser in a masterly style, and in our opinion completely refutes all the objection* wbicn have beretofore'been put forth against the operations of the Society, by those Individuals who are al ways ready to croak, and urge all sorts of flimsy and ridiculous objections whenever an appeal, no matter how touching, is made to them in behalf of the poor. Tiie report states that the Society diily realizes the necessity of a House of Refuge, especially for boys, and a honu' of employment for friendless young females, when out of employment, and particularly for the aged, helpless, and totally destitute, and widows and orphans. The state of their treasury has, however, never permitted them even to think of procuring such desirable asylums, having never been sufficient to enable them to do more than meet the many and press ing wants of those who are mainly dependent upon them for sustenance during the more in clement seasons of the year. It also states that the Trustees of the Poor could aid the Society greatly by removing the dissipated and intem perate to the work or alms house. This portion of the report closes With the following language: "The Society, though meeting with difficulties at every step, and apprehending from the pres sure of the times an increase of their beneficiaries the coming winter, have resolutely determined not to relinquish their united action, remember ing that 'in union there is strength,' and prompted by the animating inotto 'never give up the ship,' they have again launched their little bark, newly freighted with kind feelings, once more upon the waters of life, christened anew by the tears of sympathy, the 4 Speedwell,9 and with the heart cht-ering motto 4 God bless you* Inscribed upon their banner, and her sails tilled by the breezes of cheerlulVo-operation, they fear not the ebbing or flowing of the tide of popular opinion. But with faith as her pilot, ana hope and duty her oarsmen, she will still glide onward witu the rurrent. We shall gladly welcome every little rill of love that may flow into and swell our treasury, thus enabling us to enlarge the operations of our lienevolence. reviving and enriching, as we move onward in the course of duty, many desolate and cheerless scenes in nature by dropping here and there, wherever the soil of the human heart may be found prepared for their reception, the seeds of divine truth, and thus save many of God's poor, abject and tempest-tossed little ones from sinking beneath the bitter waves of adversity and dispair. In consequence of there being no regular report of thii operations of the society made last year, its receipts and expenditures for the two years arc embraced ill this report, and are as follows : Amount of receipts from November, 1*53, to No vember, l*jfl,$<7<il "-'l; expended during the same l>eiiod, !*)>??!?
