LOCAL 1 INTELLIGENCE. Tin Richmond Cl'?to*-H<iC*e Robbkbt.? The Richmond Whig of yesterday ?"?V* : rh* rnmmtiioii ol William Somerville, c\xo-z ?& with burglariously entering tbecuMom hou*e, arid *te?iing money then from. was com before the Hu?lin^ Court yesterday An e*ltao?dinary episode occurred during the p-n-'res* of the investigation. Officer Bos.*, of \\ i?hiii?t?ii. In bin testimony, explanatory of the confession ?f Somerville. stated that he ap nro4< bed the prisoner. nearthe Powhatan IIouse, wtiil** he w:ii in e?i*tndy of Hffl'"*' Morni, and iu*tead of Ixtinji repulsed with a frown, a# he expected, he was greeted with a ?mile of recog n'non by the prisoner. They shook hands, wuked lo -.he Courl-IIouse steps, and witness remarked that they (the officer*) had mcf with tfuod lurk that Ptilling had shown where the money had ?>een serreted. and that some tlfteen thousand dollars had heen recovered Somer ville then voluntarily Mid that he had t*een led Into the ?rrape by Pulling?that it was hi* tlrst oflence, Ac.. Ac. The questiou was a^ked by Judge Crnmp. prisoner's roamrl: ? Did you not say to Somerville in effect, after apprizing him of the recovery of the money, that you knew all. and he Lad Iwter make a clean breast of it*' Officer Hos* emphalically and positively denied having made such a remark, or anything approaching to it ?? Officer Morris, of the Richmond police, wa> then examined lie deposed that after the r? cog nition between Hoss and Sou.erville, and the re mark about the finding of the money. Boss con tinued the conversation by saving to Somerville that Pilling H<i l imformtd h>m that this was the tirst robbery in which he?Soinerville?had been engaged, that bis ($.'*) wife was sick at Charles ton", etc , and if it was all true. he. Boss, was was very sorry for hiin The witness was then proceeding to detail a further confession ntade bv Somerville at the jail, when he was checked by Judge Crump, who objected to the evidence a* inadmissible, on the ground that Boss had employed ?' solicitations'' to influence the pris oner. and induce a confession from him He ad diessed the Court for some time in support of this proposition, and incidentally discharged an unparalleled vollev of invective against officer Boss , at least, it b** uever been our fortune to he.tr a more scathing and merciless excoriation. He charged him with wilful. deliberate.false hood, in stating that Somerville had himself dis ? losed facts, which were communicated by r,> Somrmll' .(if Officer Morris is to lie believed ) as information received by Boss from Pulling. The C ourt overruled the motion to exclude the further testimony of Officer Morris, and he then completed his deposition, stating nothing in ad dition to the facts already in possession of our leaders The Couit then adjourned until 10 o clock, a. in , to day. The N iw IIorsE Hall?An extra force of hands are now employed in the new House Hall. ;n constructing the Speaker's seat, and the desks of the clerks and reporter*, which are being made of Italian and Tennessee marble, and are of the ni*>st exquisite and elaborate workmanship. The hall fi?*?r is being car|>eted by J. Thompson, up holsterer. The carpet is of American manufac ture, and comes from Boston: it is of appropriate pattern and color*, conforming to the general c haracter of the room. The gallery seats are being grained, in imitation of mahogany Spe cimens of the beautiful bronze railing for the side stairways have just armed at the receiver's office from Messrs Cornelius A Baker, of Philadelphia; they are placed in the new agricultural commit tee room The Speaker's retiring room is to be th* great feature <>f the new south wing; it is to be finished of iron entirely. The pier* of the eastern porticoes are com menced. and considerable progress has been n.ade in their construction. The connecting cor r dors advance upward with due speed If i? in tended to have the south corridor completed for the use of the member*, in passing from the old Capitol to this wing, during the coming session The heavy iron plates composing the exterior eoruice of the new Dome liegin to arrive; the iron work for this part of tb<- dome is done by Messr*. Brl>ee A Co., of New York, and is executed in their usual style of excellence. Fi*s o> Capitol II ill ?A tire broke out yes terday afternoon, ah "lit 2 o'clock, in an alley leading from B street, Capitol Hill, iu two brick stable*, belonging to Mr J . I'nderwoodand Col. Butler, which were filled with coals in the base ment and hav in the loft* They were consumed to the walls tcefor* the Columbia Kire Company, which, a* usual, was on the spot with great promptness could arrive. They proceeded, how ever, to sxtinguish the tlames, thereby preventing the fire from communicating to any of the sur rounding buildings The origin of the fire is not known.out it is supposed to be the work of an incendiary. Suspicion attaches to a black cart driver, who Is employed by some contractor for street grading, and ha* li.id use of the stables for sometime past. After the fire had Wen extin gii*hed. the meinliers of the Company were in vited by Capt. Dunninv'ton to his house, where they partook of such hospitalities a* the sudden ness of the occasion would admit of The Com pany then adjourned to the east Capitol grounds, where some time was spent by them in testing the forcing capacities of their neat little auction. CtBt rii Cocki ?During yesterday the Court w.i* engaged as u?nal in the case of Jones against Ixrmott The instructions prayed for by Mr. Brent, counsel for defence, having oeen granted, a* stated in yesterday's issue, the argument was gone into, ou the part of the plaintiff, by M r Maury. who spoke m the case al>out an hour and a half, and was followed by Mr. Brent for de fence. who addressed the Court for one hour ?inor to their adjournment, but did not conclude l?:? argument. This morning the Court met at the usual hour, aud Mr. Bicnt took up the subject where it had l?en dropped. He was rugaged in addresaiug the Couit when this report closed. It is understood that, when Mr. Brent'* argu ment closes, lie will I* followed by Mr. Carlisle /or idaintitT. who will close the case. It is not likely, however, that it will get to the jury be i .re some time to-morrow \o doubt the closing up of the matter, which has been so long pro tracted. will be a great relief to all concerned.

The blow stunned litin for a moment, and as he was staggering and atraut to fall, he was seized from behind bv some one, who clasped him aroui.d the at ins and held him up while a uuiiil>er of the parly beat hirn with billies, and cutoff his .right ear with a knife While in this condition he was lobbed of his pocket book, containing ?Hf>.

To the accustomed Washington ball-goers we need not say a word more, but to sfanj'ers ai.d to those just coining upon the scene of action we will just drop the hint that the In fantry annual ball is invariably looked forwad to. and remembered afterward, as tk' ball of the year ' Prior to the opening of the tall, the Com pany will go through various regular and fancy maneuvers and the manual of arms. Not a few of our leaders will remember what an inteiest i:ig feature of the Infantry's last annual ball was this drill. Withers' lull band has l>??en engaged for the occasion.

J a k RJiT t s Mammoth Railroad Excursion to-morrow night to Baltimore (and Burton) bids fair.to drain the city of its population, for It is beyond human nature to resist the opportunity to make the round trip to Baltimore for ?l 50. es pecially when it includes an opportunity to see such an actor as Burton in four of his l>est char acters. He will appear as ??Toodle*;"' ' Megrim" in "Blue Devils;*' and as "Joe Baggs'' and "Madame Vander pints" in ''Wanted One Thou sand Milliners." Henry C. Jarrett, the manager and originator of this novel trip, must certainly l>e voted a public benefactor.

Accident from Gunpowder?Sunday night several little l?oy* in the Fifth Ward were amus ing themselves by tiring a toy cannon, and burn ing miniature trains of gunjiowder. Two of them, sons of Mr Hooj?er, were burned by the unexpected explosion of the powder while they were standing over it. Their clothing, hair, faces and caps were bu- ned?a warning to the n ami others not to meddle with such dangerous articles The powder was obtained by a lad, who, thoughtlessly, gave it to the little fellows to use. Caught Ar. vis.?Jim Clagett. a darkie well known to the Police and Guards for his mischie vous pranks and diso'derly liehavior. and who has managed to escape from the workhouse three times within a few months, was caught again l.ist night by the Special Police, under the Cap tain of the Auxiliary Guard, and this morning was sent back to his old quarters, to serve out his old turns, with an addition ofOodaysfor his dis orderly behavior last night.

We barn that one of the main object* of the Convention is to secure, If possi ble, afternoon sessions of the schools. We regret to say that, for some time past, we have discovered a reckless and lawless spirit raaiufestiiitf itself anion;; many of the young men, youths and boys, of our town. It Is far from !*? m^an uncommon thing to see manyof this class, during the early hours of the night, prowling about the streets?either wholly or party intoxi cated?rendering night hideous with their vul garity and disgusting yells. The practice ../car rying deadly weapons is also becoming too com mon, we I hi uk, for the good of society; and the sooner our Corporate authorities take the mutter in hand and enact a stringent law for the sup pression of these serious and growing vices, the better it will be for the community Against selling intoxicating drinks to iiMiiors. we believe there has for many years been stand ing on the records of the Corporation a pretty stringent law; but we incline to the belief that it has become a dead letter, from the fact that not withstanding it is repeatedly violated, we have yet to hear of the lirst instance in which the law has been enforced. Those who sell deadly weapons to either youths or boys, we regard as being more culpable and guilty of a more serious offence against society than the violators of the law before mentioned, and ought to lie held to a rigid accountability by every parent and good citizen in the community. Cases have come to our knowledge during the last day or two where the venders of dangetous and deadly weapons i^e disposed of them to boys ten or twelve years old. Such conduct we regard as perfect outrage ous, and unless they desist in the future, we i?u hfsitatingly say that their names should be given to the public. The public should take.sueh steps as would compel I hem to desist from such con duct in the future, or else scout them from the community hi which they are sowing the seeds for so luaiiv serious evils. We sincerely hope that our corporate authori ties^ I take the matter in band, and put a stop o it, by enacting some such law as they now have in force in our sister city, and also one im posuig a heavy penalty upon the venders of tire arms and other daiigeious weapons, for seiliii" 'hem to minors I'uless something of the kind IS speedily done, our town will, we fear, soon be, oiue the battle-ground for other rowdy spi.its than thiise we already have among as: and Cod knows wc are tormented with too many, by far, a -eady 1 heJaws now in force in Washington will deter sik h spirits from their villany in th.it cit\. and we have reason to fear that our streets will besought as the place, by contending or rival parties, to settle their piques and animosi ties and they may soon become disgraced by such scenes as have frequently of late been en Actea in that city and in other quarters We have been requested to call the attention of our city authorities to the fact that in one or two places the water flows over the road leading to the Little F alls Biidge, and miles* some provi sion is made to remedy the matter before cold weather sets in, ice may form at these points suf ficient to cause kuiiu serious accident, and involve our Corporation in heavy damages "b00""" Einbark Dor,olio, Philadelphia, to Hyde & Davidson, Alott Bedell. .V w \ oik. to I eter Berry; schooner Southerner.
