LOCAL NEWS. The Aduhe?* or Robxxt Ovld, ? q , itrom the Auk*i ofColcmsias Collsoe on Tn*ti4ay viming tact, was founded upon a letter attributed to Lord Macauley, written to Mr. H. S. Randal', the American historian of Jefferson, upon the aubject ?f Government. In his preliminary n* marks, tbe *penk?*r alluded to the subject of this letter, characterizing it as one fall of warning and affording text for profound and anxious reflection. Lord Macaulev is no me:in authority bo man In o r century ha* more profonndfy studied the theory and practical working of consr.tuttor* He baa chronicled with admiration every pi>r'^ar advtnre In his own government, ewr fight of t:?e people wrung from reluctant power Neither the man nor hi* opinions can be vh *t!ed down the wind with a sneer, nor angry personalties. nor vehement recriminating attacks upon tlie form of government of his own country, break the forre of his words. He mu?t he answered by grave and solemn argument If be be rgbt, no people are aa much interested Ih the d'scovery as we If no? to u?. it is a matter of life and death to ourcbi idren an?l onr children1* children Next after the truth on which the eternal welfare of man depends, nothing can be ao % important as tlr. j solemn subjei t. whic h involves no* only the study of those charters i u which your rights and duties are defined, but also of man, bis nature, his. rights, his duties, the good and evil that re in him. his reason, infirmities, vices, his phvslfal. intellectual, and moral canaeltlj* win'* It la the momentous question, whatever may he the form of government, whether freedom can exist where majorities recogni/e only rights and not dutiea Octrrnment la decreed of fiod, and the decree la enforced by a aanrtlon ao cogent, that the race of man must periah If It be not obeyed But who shall exercise the powers of government, and what shall be the mode and mensure of their authority, are mattera which He leaves to man to decide for himself. That he exercise care to decide wisely is a duty which he owes, not more to himself than to others, and most of all to his Maker. No pa'Ucular form of iiovernment is of divine appointment; but it ia the decree of Heaven, stamped in the nature of man, that government of some sort there shall be; as Prof Lieber says "Government of some sort ia aboriginal with man; It ia no voluntary association; no contrivance of art; no invention of suffering; no work of contract by indiv'.duala who previously li?ed out of It; no nereaaarv *vil- no ill humanity which will be cured bv time and civilization; no accidental thing: no institution above, and se j>ar*te form of society; it la a form and faculty of mankind. It Is the glory of nisn " Government nr.'it necessarily conform itself to circumstances, and to changes in the condition and character of th* people. It is to their adaptation to the character, habits, and wants of the people that the be*t institutions owe all their value It is impossible that tbe same government which is best for a horde of poor and Ignorant barbarians, can he best for an enll"hteued, refined, and prosperous community The goviV* IKA ? m * ...... ... ~H,vu ?u?

Lords, and Comrnans of Euglind, as it stood tu the reiifn of the Third Edward, could uot now be endured for a day bv the English people. To spt-ak of any form of government therefore, as b*ing abstrjrtedly the best, is only to utter folly The best form of government for one people or one a^e, may be the very worst for auother people or another age Even when a government is once formed, suitable tr the conditions of a people, it the nart of wisdom t? m?k?

Teat policy Las wa n aud Hjja'n saved her from the terrors of political and social revolutions It is also undeniably true that most if not all thes*r.tn her constitution were purchased by her own people The Inviolability of property has been toe lever of her liberties Concessions, grants, charters, liberties, all were bought by advances of money. The retention hi the bands of the representatives of the people of the power of uuuuu, mm uer iroui despotism. France, on tbe otter band, by denying concessions, and Insisting upon a form of government totally unskilled t*> the condition of a people living in tbe blaze of civilization, precipitated herself into her memorable revolution Time, attended in iU progress by civilization and refinement, had cLauged the individual Frenchman, but had paMed on without touching the organization of the government. The stern feudalism of Charletiia^ue ex sted in giariug contrast with the literature of the times of Louis XIV. The speaker then went on to speak of tbe exactions of tbe King and nobles to pamper the lazy pomp of a corrupt Court, of their failure to afford protection or guidance to the people; of the spiritual teachers of tbote time* degenerating religion into a ceremonial?"a repetition in the cathedral of tbe tiantnmitne of th? thmtwi''? _ | W -Oiiu V/* lUCi X own disbelief in and failure to practice what they taught, while they forgot not to receive the wages whtch were wrung from the bony band of penury and waat; of the noblesse, who. not content with exemption from burthensome taxation, rioted in the immunities of an old feudalism until, stripped of thetr estates by tbeir extravagaucies, ttev fell back upon the largesses of a corrupt Court, whose extortions equalled their own excesses Thus the Government became a rank, glaring imposture?a machinery of fraud, hypocrisy and cruelty. For centurits had these abuses iit-en carried on, and sovereign and nobles bf*n heaping up wrath against the day of wrath, which it length came in the mightyrushinv wind and e^rthqu:?k'*. wnlch swept not only along the roofs and oatii?-:uents of the imperial fabric, but rent >-aiiiid~r ita foundations ana scattered abroad Its Lat-d materials. The truth was again proclaimed. that? ' There la a point In misery. wLicli. making the oppressed man Regardless of Ma own fate, make* him, too, I Lord of the oppressor." There mmt l>e conformity between government an<l society The revolutions of States have generally been but the violent exhibitions of the action of this great law. Government and society are ao lntim iWy connected that the former is ?rer made responsible for the latter. If society has its esger and pressing wants, government must mee* them, or if tt fail* to do so, from want of power or disposition, it Is made the ODen I f point of attack, and the work of demolition'begins there. Government is not the noble aqu? luct that plants its firm feet beneath the to rent and stride* the waV-rs like a master, defying their rage; it is rather the frail bark that g..e's forth "to play familiar with old ocean's hoary locks,"' and is wrecked when the tempest Is abroad While, as republicans and believers in the theory of free ^governments, wr *rv ready to recognize the truth of what 1 have advance!, when applied to despotisnift and even monarchal governtnruts, we s^cm t > l?e singularly averse ti> their application to free constitutions There never was a more terrible or fetal mistake In a country where much land is unappropriated, the task* of government are few and simple, and of easy exec utiou When, bowcver. the vast domain has become appro:.nail ted and peopled, then the political actiuu of ^ov __ -.n<4 k. ? ?: - J # - rrnuinifc itm. auu wjsuuui Oi 1X8 HrlICiUr<f I and administration is put to the test.

The more numerous class, whatever It may be, w.<nU fn-1 it far more convenient and ( rtalnlv far safer to redxes* a fanned grievance, or perpetrate * wrong through tbe ballot box. than to resort to the revolutionary pike. The security of such a proceeding would lead to its frequent repetition One would be but the precursor of a greater, until the plundered minority would seek Its refuge beneath the |>rotectiou of the strong arm of despotism If the machinery of a free government be but a contrivance for ascertaining the wishes of the majority, what Is the result when that majority goaded by want or impelled by criminal lusts, are bent on robbery T W hat Is tbe ballot box tlieu. but the instrument of wrong T W Uen the popular heart becomes corrupt?when duty Is considered a word of imposture and cousc ence a bugbear?when u,e barr er of scruple is rudely torn away, the ballot-box itself become* ik* WI>- ?nan#? ftf tvraniiw ^-- ?? ft"" ? -/-?? ?

And if in our own times, in view of the licentious turbulence that seems to have seised upon our people, there is a necessity for further restraints and additional authority, we are false to the character of freemen, unless we impose them.

Incs*i>iary Firs?About 8 o'clock last night. t*ro men were seen to jump from a window of one of tbree newly-finished, unoccupied two-story brick houses owned by Mr. John Reed, situated in Eleventh street west, between O and P itreets north A few minutes later a tire burst out of the house, which spead so rapidly that in a few momenta it rnmmnni/?#M wifK *K<? ???? w ..... ... .... .v % "vv* mtu >uv v/? u^l ?wu houin. and all three of them were rapidly destroyed bv the flimti It also communicated to five two-story frames adjoining on the south, own'd by Mr C.

Mr Reed is Insured for 81,HO lu the North American Company, and loses over and above that amount some 81X10. Mr. Richardson loses some 81,200 over and above an insurance of $2,500 in the Mutual Company. The only water available, beyond that taken in buckets from a pump near by, was a limited supply from an adjacent brick yard, which was soon exhausted, and the engines in consequence rendered useless The severest loss is sustained by the occupants, who lost nt-ariy everything they had except the clothes on their backs, the heat being no Intense as to prevent any successful effort at saving their goods Imitatiki* Solomon Northrup?Citizens of the District will easily perceive the similarity between tbe following case and that of the author of "Fourteen Years fii Slavery." Mr. J. Frizzell yesterday noticed the strange conduct of two white and a colored man who were lurking about in the country around tke Chain Bridge, and suspected them of tampering with slaves He made an nrrangc-roent by which be succeeded in capturing all three. al>out three miles from the bridge; but one (Win. Beniamin, who it appears is the principal,) broke loose, and escaped Fred. Axter (white) and the negro (George Armstrong) were secured and brought to Washington The bearing of the two indicated their northern training and education. The negro claimed to be a native of JeftVrson county, NY; said he came passenger in a propeller to Baltimore, and had allowed Lis two companions to otter him for sile in Baltimore and near Beltsville; claims to be free born. He is certainly an educated darkey, lu bis dis 1 j i? *-? * * - - - - * * euwc ut nuuiu uc va?t-u ior a iong*uoat tiana in his working clothes He replied to the question, "Wby did you want to be sold?" that where he came from, it was difficult for a colored man to live from hand to mouth, and the little he had seen Induced bim to wish for a life in the South; he would be glad of the change ' His comrade (Axter) was perfectly mute, neither speaking nor beinx spoken to The negro wai the spokesman, and was as communicative as could be desired. He is a stout black fellow; young, apparently not much over *21; has a slight cast in his eyes, and wou d make a line hand in any field. His answers were all regarded as designed to mislead his captors, who suspect tbat be and his party are connected with the underground railroad Justice Donti committed both to jail toawiita further hearing. Criminal Court?After our report closed yesterday, Elizabeth Davis (colored) was tried in two cases for larceny in stealing articles from Sidney and Henry DeCamp, and convicted She 11/4 BOH /?*?/>??! *' " " w ciguurtru mourns in the county jail. Charles Peres (Mexican) was tried on a charge of grand larceny, in stealing a number of gold coin* from James VV . Brown. The jury found a verdict of guilty, and he was sentenced to two years in the penitentiary. To-4ny.~The case of the United Stitesagt. Jas. Mnntz. for assault and battery on William C. Newton, was tried The jury had not returned a verdict when our report closed. The court then took up the case of the United States agt. Martin Kin?, for the larceny of chickens of the value of *10. This case was pending when our rej?ort closed. Carrying Matters too Far?Yesterday, J no. Schmidt was rearrested for assaulting and beating Augusta Schmidt, his wife. It appeared that after giving security in the case we mentioned, he returned to the house where his wife resides and repeated the assault Justice Johnson immediately committed him; and detective officer Parham was on the way to jail with him, wb"n, meeting a friend, the prisoner gave the required bail. Mrs Klotsbach made oath that she wa* that Mn. Schmidt would set fire to her property. Her frars were based on the declaration of Mrs. Schmidt, that rather than let her husband have her furniture she would burn it up The peace bond was not required in this case. Mrs. Schmidt accused Mrs Klotsbach of profanity in the street. A warrant was issued and the ca?e taken before Squire Donn. who ordered her to pay ?1.94 line and cost* The parties all live iu the same house. Mrs Klotsbach is Mrs. Schmidt's landlady.

Mr Editor : Are we to have no public celebration on our National Anniversary?no oration, no public reading of the Declaration of Independence? no military parade.' Why is this so' You, as well as myself, who have lived our whole lifetime in this our native city, and have witnessed in other days the celebration of our National Birthday with so much display and so much eclat, must feel mortified that tLat day will pass away almost without the tiring of a gun The influence of the Star is very great, as you well know Make the suggestion, and my word for it the old-line city boys will be up ana doing It is not too late.
