LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Capt Josarn B T**e, the founder of this pa P*'?The Fventng Star- and since the 3d of July, 1-^3. the manager of it* financial affairs, died at h'a re* denee on M street, of a pulmonary affec tion, which had been gradually waiting him. aw*y t?r tour year* past.^ No man was better known to the present generation of the cttlioM of W ashlngton, for no other intODg them? though making no pretensions ? waa more noted for active business haMts and substantial use fulness in hia sphere. In ali of hia doling* with every one. he waa strictly an upright man and took no thought of aught but the coMclen tious discharge of hia duties to hia fkmlly, his friends, and the community A? a husband, fa ther, eon, and friend, his death will leave a void in many hearts that no change* of life through out time, can All. He Herd a bright example of the value to society of true public spirit, probity, Industry, and temperance in all things; and. dy ing. has left behind him a consequent reputation which should be a consolation to his widow and two orphans, so mournfully bereaved In hia death. His end was calm and peaceful. For thirty-six hours before it transpired, be was nw?r?of Its approach; and, after receiving the consolations of the religion of Christ, the Re deemer of arranged his worldly affairs with as much equanimity as though in perfect health.^He was a native of this city, and was aged thirty-nine years and nine monthiD His fuueral la to take place on Friday next, at2 p m , from bis late residence (on M street, near the corner of Tenth) from whence his earthly remains will be escorted to their final resting place bv the Washington Light Infantry and the odd Fellows, and his friends and those of his family, who are invtbd to attend. We shall rarely look upos bis like again. < haioi o? Jvdji Ckawfokd io THI Gba.ND Jc?Y?Subjoined we give the charge of Judge Crawford, delivered at the opening of the March term, and a copy of which was solicited by the jury for publication : OemtltmtH of Ike Uritm>J Jury: A very short vacation brings the different branches of this tri bunal to their several duties. Ah each sLall ren der the appropriate service, so will be the result of ?wir combined endeavor If the proper-pint Is the animating motive of all who are officially engaged here; if we are resuectivAy determined. "?. , a" niay be practicable, to reach every one who ha* been guilty of a crime, without thinking of men or looking to consequences, and sedulous ly pursue this object, we may reasonably hope that oar efforts to promote the public welfare will not lie f u it less I have, therefore, remarked, on occasions like tne present, that the certainty of punishment baa i 1 *'ro,|K?r restraining influence on those viciously inclined than the severity of ttie pen alties visited upon convicts. This observation experieu.-e seemed to justify; but the recent de clension in moral*?not greater, and I think not so great, here as elsewhere, but lamentably growing worse?seems to warrant the opinion, that to certainty should be add-d increased -rri'J' ^ combination of remedial agents ia railed for by the circuinstauces of the day; and, perhaps, this union of tbe chief means for re pressing crime may be found to operate more beneficially than either separately, which, how ever used, have been less effectual hitherto than all good men could desire. This conviction has pressed itself so conclu sively upon tbe Court that It has been ac ed upon wherever there was discretion. The punishment award*d throughout tbe last term, were more se vere than I had thought my duty theretofore required me to make them. especially in relation to riotous conduct and drunken brawls with the use of fire-arms or other deadly weapons, which baa become alarmingly prevalent, and in which It la a matter or deep regret that the principal p?irti^*ipant* are youth or Ypry youn^ men?gome of Whom are now expiating their graceless and wicked conduct in thejailand penitentiary The 1 will pursue the name course for (he future, and those who subject themselves to the disci pline of this tribunal, may be assured that if they wu1 perversely and wickedly continue or rail into the evil courses of life, that are so de structive to themselves and injurious to society, they shall be to feel the weight of thelaw's condemnation, even, in canes which call for it to the utmost limit to which legal authority will warrant the Court in giving. What, if they re flect at all, these young delinquents can promise themselve* in tbe ruture, or how or by what rea son parent*, who are ma nlyculpable.can just try their ivegrt-ct or duty to their ofl?pring, it is d'tli cult even to imagine The ruin or their sons and the wretchedness and disgrace or themselves are the certain rate of both. ' ?Jh.!re l,>!",tt-of n"0'*1* apparent through out tbe world. A ou can scarcely look into a newspaper without meeting notices of embezzle ments of funds, by those who have been en trusted with the safe keeping and disbursement of money In banking and other Institutions, *,UnM ia ,b* ev*T day transac t.onsof their business Men who, In long lives, and by supposed honorable conduct, made fo? themselves enviable reputations, and been re garded a? deserving or the fullest confidence, have been discovered in the pecuniary, manufac turing, and merrantile walks-and even in the religious?to be utterly unworthy of trust; and not to have fallen by a siugle act or dereliction, but to have beeu corrupt for longer or shorter pe ? i?ds or time?thus manifesting deliberate trans gression that shocks the moral sense of mankind a d bodes no good to us in years to come If the recent development* of fraud shall result In holding men to stricter accountability and a persistent observance of integrity it "'??We oflVt to the pecuniary*revoi? Vvl1 whieb ha* ?>fO"tfht about these disclosu.ea , ben V?u that those for whom you had a right to expect most have fallen away and sunk Into disrepute and contempt, you may calculate with reasonable certainty upon the moral taint ' running down through others who are less for tunate in a worldly sense, who have smaller stakes In the social relations of lire, who have fewer props to keep them erect, who have not received tbe advantages or education, and. worse than all, who b;ive not felt the rest.aining arm of home InBuenres. nor have had the benefit of parental or guardian guidance In their approach i? "4*n,r"nc? "Pon the . age of manhood. JNeglect in this particular is the proliflc source of on me, and the broad highway to the peniten tiary and an Ignominious death. II id associa tions lead Immediately to intemperance, and that emboldens to the commission of every sin which is still further prompUd by the united a? t!on of the bad and the thoughtless. Force and violence are sought to be substituted for tbe laws of the land and it behooves all gocd men and especially tho?e wo<>. like you ati-.l me, are entrusted with r*?wer, that we may subserve the best interests of the community by holding up a- examples to others tho>e who shall be proved to he justly amenable to the law, to be particu larly vigilant to do mir whole duty. While the crying sH-nce of the passing time is the one just d welt upon, there are not wantiii" others o! which more or fewer always en n?e the attention of (irand Juries, and among the com plaints that shall be present*d to you, some will probably be found that the public have little or uo interest in These will, of course, be the sub jects of investigation, but it is respectfully sub mitted that if you shall think (bey do not concern society, and that no good will follow their pros ecution b? fore the petit jury they should be dis missed The cases f|jit Will lie brought to your notice will be, accoidiug to ja%t experience, in large p.opo-tioa not remarkable for deep atrocity, nor yet free r.oni the dark stain of crimes Such aie the violation* of the rights of property by simple theft as d.stioguished from biiiglary, robbery, and the like high off. -mcs, and violent attacks en the person without endangering life, or limb, or female purity. I b?se, in the geueial, you Will be able to dispose of satisfactorily to your own conscience* and public justice without much difficulty, exercising only the diligent scrutiny, which should be invoked in every case. Other charges of a mixed < La acter, such as making and passing counterfoil money, forgery, and oi; taiuing money a-id other property by false p;e tences. will require, u-.t H different rule of a? tion but a more laborious examination or the compli cation of circumstances H which those who per jvetrate these offences seek immunity the penalty of the law. 7 Of the great crimes which go beyond those re ferred to, and may, in their consequences, even reach 'he lives of the partl> s accused, it is neces sary to say only a word. On the perpetration of ?ucb acta, ana the announcement of their commission opinions ate expressed of their atro city; these are, however, but the testimony of worth and virtue against vice, and to tbe neces sity of upboldiug society by the stern infliction of whatever punishments aieotdained for ascer tained guilt The forming of opinions under all the responsibilities of official duty, and the mak ing of declsious that must t>e followed by fixed legal c??iiseqoenc? s. are or a different and very grave character. They mu?t be pr ceded by the most rigid scrutiny, conducted calmly and cielio eia'tly as cautiously as they are important and as fl inty as justice demands Sucb considera tion, I am confident, such charges, should they be made, will ret ieve from you Permit me, in conclution, gentlemen of the tirand Juiy. to suggest that your service at this term be in^de as short as a proper discharge of the duties it imposes will allow Chimijul Cotkt ?To-day, tbe Court met at tbe usual hour, and after the calling of tbe O. and Jury tbe witnesses in tbe case of the United Htales r?.

There are several new varie ties of axalias and of acacias, of the latter a fine specimen of the ncana -pubtsrtnx The display of ever-blooming carnations Is a noticeable one. In roses the collection is particularly rich?some two hundred specimen* of choice varieties hav ing been recently nrocured for it by Dr. Blake. The inexperienced observer might well be excused for en wing Mr. Watt his vocation amid all tbr** )x?autifnl plant* and flowers, and vet we imagine that the ceaseless vigilance and labor required in his business would discourage most people undertaking It. Should the temperature fall suddenly in the night, and this often hap pens in our climate. Mr. Watt must spring from his bed and hasten to look after his plants. In many other occupations what is not done one day can be done the next, but not so with him. for a il ^"\'Ld.t0 t.b''ir w*nt"i for ? ?'?Kle day, would l>e death to the flowers and perhaps to the parent stems. So when others seek rest or plea sure, we may count upon seeing Mr. W. at his P?*t; and. judging by his sunny countenance and cheerful air, his love for his catling makes it a pleasure for him to follow it, with all its exae tions. . w Baltimore Axkcal Co.xfbrbjicb ?'This large and respectable body of the Methodist Episco pal clergy met this morning, at 9 o'cloc"-, in Wesley Chapel, comer of Fifth and F sts.
