LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Notes os thi Kxcra?io* or thi Washiko tok Lt?ht Tsfa stey to Richmond. V*., Fkb ?Weir* indebted to one of the excursion ists for the following rich and racy description of the trip of the Infantry By the tall "cunning" raised in Petersburg, Norfolk. and other places, It would seem that the military and other visitors were treated in the shabbiest manner at Rich mond : Left Washington on Sunday at 12 m in the steamer Baltimore, in company with the German * agers. Masons, and a good share of citizens our compaay numbering thirty-one muskets, six officers, W it hers' Brass Band of twelve perform ers and two attendants. Dress parade uniforms, knapaack*. and In other respects In creditable condition, Steaming down the river, encountered a good deal of ice; boat lurching and careening; raid to have bad much more wa ter in the bold than was considered necessary for (ulawl '"^ing fo eat, except a few snacks car ried by the members, most of us supposing a dinner would be served on board; was Informed we could obtalu such acceptables at Ashland, of rourae must stand it like men. At Aquia Creek, by 6 p m ; glad to be relieved of the steamer? who tried its hardest to produce a sensation something akin to sea sickness Got into the cars after straggling into some four or five.which wore not for the special accommodation of tbe military; got seated and congratulated ourselvee on tbe now pleasant prospect of keeping our equilibrium Cars started, found we were s.tdly disappointed, as they kept up a constant rollin ;, tossing, lifting, and. with all. a deafening ra< fe et, the whole getting ahead of the steamer by 25 per cent; but we took it coolly. The speed of the cars was also a subject worth noticing; at times we were driving along at the rate of ten miles an boar; then, by the way of giving us time to re gain our breath*, we crept along at a pretty good rfog-frof Arrived at Fredericksburg, got a drink ?of water?very dry People of this place ap pear to be agreeable; thankful for civilities Off again At Ashland, gong agoing, niggers also: plenty to eat; first regular meal for fourteen hour*. Ofl again; happy to hear Richmond is only sixteen miles off Disgusted with railroads and steamboats generally Richmond at last; the word Is passed from car to car. Anticipation exceedingly lively; ' battalion to escort us to uuarters ' "good quarters, plain fare, and a sol dier s welcome,'* such weie the arrangements that would be made for us; we expected it; we told our friends in Washington of tbe pleasant times we would have; otherwise we would have done our own arranging At the terminus of the railroad in Broad street, % past II p m ; sorry to have kept our Richmond fiiends up half the night to escort us to uuarters; looked out of the cars, through the darkness, could discern some thing of a crowd. Thought tbe military would receive us in military manner; did not notice particularly any great ado; cheering, Ac., com mon. as a welcome to a stranger company. Too much engaged in getting our military toggle in order to notice anything of that sort; out of the cars; Yagers on the right of us; Virginia Rifles (German) acting as escort, to them we return our sincere thanks for that and many othercivilities Arrived at our quarters; Strang- place, not accus tomed to such arrangements; looks like a re spectable butcher stall, with plenty of books to bang up one's self without any extra exertion; we are supposed to lie horses by our entertainers, as tbe floor is nicely covered with an extra quantity of straw thrown aronud and covered with cotton, at the centre some nicely-i?at;ged straw; these were intended, doubtle**, to l?e occupied by tbe company officers \N e noticed the absence of some very needful articles to complete our estab lishment, vli: pitchforks, currycombs, brushes, and buckets. Mine boat, tbe landlord, in shirt sleeves welcomed us ts our quarters with a lew words, which were understood easily. The State furnished tbe straw, Are, and gas; for board e?tch man would pay per diem *II2j{ To say we were taken all aback, surprised, bewildered, Ac. would be but the truth. It was too ricb. and we soon determined upon taking care of ouiselves in the best possible manner. Up went tbe merry laugb as some one was tumbled into tbe straw no exceptions; in went landlord, officers, and men; then tbe dance, gymnasium, war speeches; lor, at times, we imagined ourselves bound on a war tramp, declared our independence of Rich mond, toasts to the capital of the nation, 'o tbe nation generally?but excepted Richmond?to a merry time, and we had it. Thus passed tbe night. Morning came; rambled about; came near getting lost; no guides, committees of any thing in tbe usual way, to show us about town Appeared ipon parade, tfcecreditof the Wash ington military not impaired by oar general ap pearanee; marched in overcoats; snow, backed by a cutting north wind, came driving at us at an angle of 35 degrees; iniul and slush, four inches de?-p,was abundant. Good long march; of course, aH Richmond must see the great procession. It was an immense affair?a just tribute to the mem ory of him whose name is dear to bis country men, and may it ever find honor, respect and ven eratlou at their hands. Further details are un necessary. Rich and racy incidents abounded It forms a chapter in our lives not readily effaced Our thanks are tendered, with sincerity and all respect, to the Yagers and their whole-souled captain; also, to theVirginia Rifles German), and to Washingtonians generally, as we clanned togother, went together, and saw a merry time in company. We returned home Wednesany morn ing at 5 a m .bearing,as mementoes of the grand inauguration, a photograph of our quarters, a curry-comb and an old horse-brush, which will be suspended in our Armory for inspection by the public on parade days. la Til* CiacviT Coukt, yesterday, tbeca<eof \N m \ an R'swick ri John Van Riswick, Rich'd Wallach and Samuel Byington. was decided by the jury for the plaintiff, and the damages award ed were the sum of 31.098 07.

Father Kroes. pastor of St. Mary's Catholic church, and by several ladies who humanely performed vari ous needful office* for the criminal. As the time of execution drew nsar, she wa<* robed in a whit* dress, with cap and gloves to match, and saw and conversed with a number of persons who had come to receive ber last messages in relation t* her husband and children, and as to the disposal of her body after death. She expressed a horror of having tier remains fall into toe hands of the medical fraternity, and had sent a message to her husband, requesting htm to have her buried out of the reach of the doctors. Mr. Wm. Garey, a friend of the deceased Mrs. Hall, caine into the room and informed ber that her husband refused lo have anything to do with her, either before or after her execution She expressed no surprise or emotion at this, but tequested Mr. Garey to have two of her children, who had never received the rite of baptism, baptised in the Catholic faith; which request Mr. G. readily promised to comply with. She expressed a desire to have the truth known as to the commission of th? crime for which she Wit* now to suffr.. Had she not been drunk, ac cording to her own statement, she would never have committed the dreadful crime. She spoke feelingly of her late mistress, and said she had always been kind and good towards all her ser vants, and that the sentence of the Court was just '? Hlocd for blood," said she, '-is right and just, and 1 ain satisfied with the sentence, and willing to die for my sin." She seemed very anxious to Lave the newspapers contradict several false reports that had gone out as coming from her, with regard to the cruelties of her late mistress towards her; she denied ever having accused her master or mistress of harsh treat ment of herself, and repeated in the presence of several witnesses the assertion that they never treated her beyond hei deserts. She refused to give any cine as to who furnished her with the wlii??key, a bottle nearly full of which she had drank on the mornin? of the murder, saying that It would do no good to tell, and might effect much harm A few minutes previous to 1*2^ o'clock, she was conducted by the Sheriff and accompanied by her confessor from her room in the jail to the jail vard. her aims having been previously pin ioned; a die of the military with innsk-ts, but in citizens' dies*. guarded her passage from thejail door to the scaffold steps, which she ascended with singular firmness and self-possession; when on the platform she was seated in a chair, with her feet resting on the fatal trap-door, and Kev. Father Kroes, her confessor, addressed thecrowd which lined thejail walls, and the few specta tors who had l?een admitted inside the yard, (con sisting of the mil tary, various members of the newspaper press, and of the medical profession, with memWrs of the county court, and the jail officers) saying that she had made every confes sion which was requir?d by the true Church; ttiat shedi.d in full confession of faith in that Church and was resigned and happy. The Sheriff. Mr. Sangster, now adjusted the rope around her neck, bringing the knot under the left car; her feet were bound together, and her white robe pinned about them; a white C ^com pletely covering her head and face, was placed on and securely fastened; and a cord l?eing at tached to the fall prop which sustained the ttap in its place, its other end in the grasp of the Sheriff's officer, the criminal was made to stand up; and. at the signal, which was the dropping of a piece of white paper from the hands of the She: iff, the cord was drawn, the trap ell, and a sudden plunge was followed by the IIrial strug gles of the victim, which were terrible to behold. During all this tune the utmost silence and de corum was maintained by the crowd of spectators who thickly lined the jail walls, the neighboring trees and house tops. Two of the military, over come by the spectacle, fainted, and were carried away from the scene. The lx)dv allowed to hang for eleven min utes, and was then cut down and subjected to a galvanic test by the physicians present, which proved life to be extinct, and only had the effect to cause a slight twitching of the muscles of the fare. It was then placed in the coffin, a simple box, constructed or pine nlank, and shortly after wards nailed up An Lour or two afterwards the coffin was placed in the possession of an un dertaker, and by him taken off and buried. The repoiter takes this opportunity to express in the name of the **tar. bis gratitude to Sheriff Sangster, and to Capt. Baker of the Thos. Coll yer, for kindnesses and facilities affoided him.

In the Iron Foundery, on last Friday, was cast an Immense cylinder, a portion of the proposed Hydrostatic Machine for the new Marine Rail way. This cylinder Is twenty-two feet In length, with a bore of twenty inches in the clear, and weighs seven tons. The Marine Railway, when finished, will be a vast addition to the facilities of the Navy Department in this Yard. The Toll Gate Casks.?For some time past there has existed a misunderstanding between the Rockville Turnpike Road Company and trav elers upon the road, the latter claiming that they would pay no toll on account of the defective condition of the road. This state of things has resulted in a ilot at the Seventh street toll gate, and assaults have been committed upon the toll gatherer and sev eral who were called to bis assistance. Warrants were served upon Messrs. John T Davies, Thou. Davies, Henry Gifting* and James Barnes, by county officers Martin and Piggott, and they yes terday appeared before Justice Murphy fur trial, and were held to bail for their appearance at the March term of the Criminal Court.

MINIATURES takeu and set in Breastpin*, Lock* s.fto .by ROBERT SANDS, fa l?-f Pa. ava.. bat. nth and 9th ata, G E ORGETOWN. Clrniy?a<?K? ?/ r*s SMr. Georgetown, Feb 26. 1^50 We have frequently, of late, seen oar city stock quoted in different quarters at 4 to 10 per cent below par, and for the life of us we have not as yet be?n able to ascertain any good reason why it should not range as high as any six percent, stock in the country. When compared with the general wealth and business of the town, our public debt Is as small, tf not less, than that of almost any city of the same size and amount of trade In this section, and nearly one-fourth of what may be strictly considered our Corporation debt has already been absorbed by the sinking fund, and is now held by the commissioners of

that fund for the use and benefit of the Corpora tion. So far as we are informed at this time we have no floating debt, the luteiest upon the stock Is invariably met promptly, and besides all this, we doubt whether there is now to be found in the District five hundred dollars worth of the stock which could be purchased for less than one hundred cents on the dollar The a flairs of our Corporation generally were never in a more encouraging condition, and from present indica tions we incline to the ltelief that the general special tax can next year safely be reduced from 70 to 60 cents on the #100 The flrst of the new coaches (the R R. Craw ford) of our enterprising friend Vanderwerken's Union Line was placed upon the route yesterday. It is certainly a magnificent coach, and reflects credit, not only on the proprietor but the skilful mechanics who constructed it. A number of others will be ready for service next week. We would'advise one and alt of the Star's readers, who wish to hear a real eloquent dis course. and at the same time assist in relieving the needy and distressed, to go to-morrow morn ing, at 10 o'clock, and listen to Rev B A Ma guire, at Trinity church.
