t LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Th* AsTLr* f6* thb Dbaf, Dttmb Blibd. An exhibition of the pupil* of the Columbian Institution took place in the old ball of the House of Representatives last evening, and was, per haps, one of the most interesting afialrs of the kind that has ever occurred In this city. The concourse of citizen* and strangers in attendance was sufficiently largr to crowd the hall so that numbers were unable to find seats In this cop. nertion we may mention the fact that the thanks of those present .irv due to Messrs. Ja*. Owner and James I. Wright, for their exertions to In i r?-nse the nccotnmodations. The meeting was caliert to order by Hon. Amos Keadall. President of the Board of Trustees of the Asvluin. after which the Rev. Mr. damson offered an eloquent and appropriate prayer. Mr. Kendall then introduced the principal teacher in th* Asylum, Edward M Gallauaet, Esq., who delivered * very interesting address. He commenced by remarking that the educa tion of deaf mntes'and the blind, unknown in America at the commencement of the present century, is now so general that any argument to prove its feasibilirv i* uncalled for. The spirit of bigoted incredulity which chilled the hearts of the pioneers J has given place to a hearty sympathy and en-operation with all well directed endeavors to ameliorate the condition of the tin (fortn*alri and there is now scarce a State in this Confederacy which does not in~>ke liberal provi sion for those of its children to Whom the senses ot sight or hearing are denied. Foe many centuries after the Saviour had loosed the tongues of the dumb, and opened the ears of the deaf and the eye* of the blind, the children of silence and darkness remained nncared for. They were horn, and they lived and died, and thus, generation after generation, was their brief history written. Without education, social priv ileges. or legal rights?without sympathy in this world, or hope in that to come?they entered upon and passed off from the stage of human ac tion Faintly at tlrst the light from the sun of intelligence dawned upon them on the other side o* the Atlantic; and not until years after many portions of Europe had been blessed by the slowly diffusing Wains was there an attempt made to introduce the benign rays to our own shores. Forty years ago a little band of mutes gathered around their teacher in a neighborhood ha d by the quiet wafers of the broad Connecti cut, and gazed wonderinglv at the lessons of wisdom which fell from his expressive Angers The speaker proceeded to recount the history of this education in the United States, alluding especially to the astonishing rapidity with which schools were multiplied. State after State took the matter up. and in rapid succession pronounced the sacred '? Ej<kphatto thecloset! ears with in theit borders. He also noticed the Introduction of the instruc tion of the blind. Not thirty years ago, said he, the philanthropic Howe opened, In the Old Bay State. with six pupils, the first school in this country for the instruction of the blind. .Now, upwards of a score of similar institutions are es tablished. and, by the facilities they afford, nine hundred young immortalswho.se natural eyes are cl'>?*d have vividly displayed to their mental vision the beauties of the Gospel and the price less treasures of science* Of so recent date is the introduction of these systems of t duration, that Home of the pioneers in the work are yet in the vigorous exercise of all their 'acuities, and still eng*grd in the labor, vet the feasibility of 'he subject is so thoroughly tested that they have been permitted to witness its permanent estab lishment in the land. Under its influence pupils have been instructed and are now useful members of society. And yet. he added, while the despotic Governments of Europe have for years ministered to their un fortunates , while public and private charity Lave freely lavished their bounty in every enlight ened nation on the deaf, dumb and blind, while the care of these has become in our own land a vital portion of our system of popular education; while millions of dollars have been expended by the several States to secure for these classes con venient buildings, and thousands are annually appropriated for their support; whila even the General Government has opened its coft'-rs and made generous appropriation to aid the State in ?titutions ; and while Congress has munificently provided for the sick, maimed, infirm and iu sane in the District of Columbia, the sun of the year just closed, first dawned on a portion of our common country, where the deaf, the dumb and the blind were permitted to grow up in utter ig norance, and that portion, too, is under the espe cial care of our National I egislature ! But. thank Heaven, within the past year be nevolent men have associated for Ihe purpose of remedying this neglect, and by their energy and the aid received from last Congress, have suc ceeded in establishing an institution, which in the few months of its existence has, to some ex tent, fulfilled the benevolent designs of its found ers. Mr G desired his auditors to remember that the great object of such institutions is not to afljrd an asylum wher* these unfortunate classes may be maintained as paupers at public cost during theirlives, but to nttliemselves toconUnd successfully in the tattle of life, and take honor able positions side bv side with those whopos ?ess the use of all their faculties. As the efforts already made for their reclamation from a condi tion of normal imliecility have been sosuccessful, he deemed it unnecessary to detail the course of training, *e., and proc eeded to consider the matter in a pecuniary light. The number of pu pils graduated frcm institutions in this country is altout and the average cost of instructing and maintaining them is estimated at ?lsti per annum. The average period ailotl*d for each to remain at school is six-and-a-half years; thus the cost of educating these 3.0011 has exceeded S:l, 500,Mill. The amounts expended on lands, build ings, Ac., about 91,500.01 Ml, should not enter into the estimate, since they are permanent invest ments. and, by the rise in value of real estate.the property is worth more now than when first ap propriated The rigid and unavmpathizingecon omist may say, Why expend this vast amount on classes comprising so smalt a proportion of the community * Besides the cogent humanitarian reasons to be given in reply, the sneaker urged that if left un educated, the blind, deaf and dumb must be necessarily consigned to paii|>?ris!n. wnile, with education, they can become .>clf-?upporting. Af ter ?3,500.000 have been expended on them the 3.000 grad-iateil pupils ab.tve alluded to have ceased to t>e dependent and become productive. Averaging their ages at vents, and the cost of supporting each at *?Mi per annum, and we have an aggiegate of *?.loo,o?:o as the sum their main tenance would have c??st when destitute of edu cation. Thus the amount saved through their instruction is shown to be as follows :?Add to the cost of their maintenance in the institution per annum as the expense of supportiug them from infancy up to the age of fifteen years, and the whole cost of taking care of and educating the 3,U<*i until they became competent to provide for themselves will 1m- *5,?5M.(iOO. Therefore, the country by providing for their education is already actually the gainer of nearly 92.500 1100. Mr. G. closed his address with an earnest ap ical to Cougress and to the people of the District o aid the Columbia Institution far the instruc tion of the deaf, dumb and blind. The burthen of sustaining it lias become too heavy for the noble few through whose perseverance and gen erosity it was established, and unless assistance shall be obtained from some quarter, it must sink. On the conclusion of the address, a blind pupil perfo rrei a sacred air* n ihe piano, accompanied with singing by her fellow blind pupils. This part of the exercises was succeeded by the deaf and dumb pupils being respectively ? -tiled out on the floor at.d representing by signs various natural phenomena, the passions, Ac. Among the si^ns given by them, at the request of a teacher, Mr Jas. Dennison. (who is lik? wise a mute.) were those representing love, hate, fear, terror, the son. snow, the sea, anger, vanity, humility, courage, and angels. Several of the pupils then took their places on the stand, where they wrote a iiumlier of words on the blackboard. To show that they under stand written language numerous requests for 'bein to perform certain acts were written on the blackboard by the teacher, ai.d the pupils whose names were seveially written, complied correct ly. Three of the more advanced were then as signed subjects on which they constructed sen tences, written ou the blackboard. In every in stance the s-ntences were conclusively evident ?hat they fully understood both the subjects ex pressed and the words they wrote. At this stage of the proceedings the principal announced that Mr. John Carl.n, a deaf mute from New York, bad ju?t arrivd in the city, and he \* as brought upon the stand for the purpose of making a '-speech" to the audience by signs, which Mr. G interpreted Mr Carlinwas stated to be oue of the first mute* educate d iu this coun try. He is now a miniature portrait painter, of considerable skill, and amply competent to earu a livelihood. On being introduced, he represented that he had arrived in the city this evening, and bavin-' only heard of this exhibition after reaching here, was entirely unprepared to make an address. ||e| however, felt a deep interest in the instruction of the deaf and dumb, aud especially in this insti tution He expressed gieat solicitude in its wel fare, and the hope that Congress will extend to It the aid which it tequires, aud which the noble purp ses for which it Is designed so eminently deserve He then alluded to the little chiid'en among the pupils, and expressed a concern that they should be favoied with that geneioiw char ity which shall enable theui to gaiu the advanta ges of education Ater compilm a ing Mr Gailaudet, the teach er, quite highly, Mr C begged to be excused from further remarks.and retiied from the stand Another brief musical entertainment was given by the blind scholars, after which ore of their number wa? called upon the stand, and read s portion vt .H? ripturf, from a volume p, listed With raised clters. Tnis scholar was a gi?l, perhaps, of eleven years of age, aud she lead with Wuu derful flu-ney. A still younger scholar was also introduced, and she re-ad off a portion of Scripture with great apparent facility. I'he blind schotars then joined in singing the P<>xoi<>gy, after whlck the audience was dlS teliMCd u^# the reeelpt from the pub mher, Mr. Wm. H.

On Monday, a perturbed looking Individual made his appearance In the Capitol rotundo, and inquired anxiously for Judye Douglas, with whom, he said, he had business of importance that would not admit of delay. His language, at wj" *"?Nciently coherent to induce the offl cer on duty to lend an ear to the inquiry; but a r^r ^?addressed ?o the anxious ma'n. showed him to be as "mad as a March hare ' nHPr,K 'T*! that hi" na,,,e Ferdinand, ??nd hough at present residing in the fishy town he.,wa" of r(iyal and w .s u'i!?i descendant from that Ferdinand of Spain 1? 4? wi,h the discovery of America.

Corrf*pondfnr$ of tke Star. 8ioisitowr, Jan. 22, 1958 The Concert of our young friend*, the pupils of the Methodist Sabbath School, last night, was certainly a very interesting and praiseworthy affair of the kind, more than satisfactory to the friends and teachers of the school. Thespacloul Church edifice was crowded nearly to a jam. There could not have been far short of eigbt|hun dred to one thousand persons in attendance; and, as an evidence of the estimate placed upon the performances by the large auditory, the pro gramme bad not been more than half eotten through with, before the pastor of tbe church, Mr. Brown, was requested to secure a repetition of it this evening, which was consented to by Mr J. A. White, the leader, and the pupils It will, therefore, be repeated a^ain this evening, commencing at 7,f o'clock, and the school have determined that tue entire proceeds shall be pre sented to Mr. Brook, the very worthy old gentle man who has served the congregation as sexton for more than fifty-two years, without any inter mission. Mr. Hunter will again preside at the piano, and Mr. J. II. Wilson, O. Godey, and Misses C. White and Uodey, will repeat the so los and duets sung last night. This is recom mendation enough for this part of the Concert. The children have established their own reputa tion?go and bear them. Our voting friend. Mr. James A. White, has certainty got himself quite a name among the young folks?and many of the old ones too?and has entitled himself to the lasting gratitude of the parents of the children who attend this school. We would advise those in want of fuel to pay attention to the advertisement of Mr. M. L. Wil liams. He has a flne stock of tbe article, and of excellent quality, and oilers to sell bargains Give him a call. There is still considerable quantities of pork of superior quality coming in by \ragons, from the upper counties of Virginia.
