Thla charge grew out of a vialt by the defendant to the lager beer house of Joseph Oerbardt. on tbe 4th of March inat , to collect a bill, (ierhardt denied that be owed the [money, and ordered tbe defendant to leave his bouae, and caught hold of him and pushed him Into the street, where a number of membera of tbe German Riiles, taking std?a with Oerbardt, pitched into Wigles and beat him pretty severely.

Last night an interesting meeting wsa held in tbe old Trinity church, at which tbe condition and wanta of the Indiana were plainly act forth, and their wrongs narrated As this meeting was only preliminary one to a course of lectures, the ipwMM wm rather brief, the time being chiefly occupied In singing and recitation* from Longfellow's " Hiawatha," by ** Larooqua,'.' the wife of Ked Feather," of the Penobscot Indians Larocq<ia's musical power* are of a high order, and her recitation of '-* The Death of Minnehaha" was most affecting. Sixth Rieixtsi.-'The oficera of this regiment are drilling with great regularity, and rapidly putting themselves in condition to take charge of their several commands. They have engaged the services of Sergeant Burklef, of the U. 8. M C., wbo spares no pains to put them on a "war footing." They drill again to-night, at the old place Compact C, W. L I , Capt.

VMIT OV THE Mount Vl**ON GuA.&IMY?terday, the Mount Vernon Guards, of Alexandria, visited our city, and attracted no little attention as they paraded through our atreeta. The company numbers fifty men. rank and file, with the following officers 8. H. Deranghan. Captain; in si. Doiiui, w. illl? and Chirles Javins, 1st, 'id and 3d Lieutenants; Kdw'd Fields, Quartermaster, and J Rudd. Knsign. The company bad yesterday morning been presented with a handsome stand of colon by the ladiea of Alexandria, and were out celebrating the twentieth anniversary of their organization. After marching tome time they proceeded to call upon M. Snyder, Eaq , (their first captain,) who,appearing upon the piazza, said : Mount Vernon Guards: 1 am proud to hail you as natives of the Old Dominion?to tee you enrolled under the star spangled banner of our glorious nation. It is upwards of twenty years since the organization of your corps, the nearest company of citizen soldiery to that hallowed spot where rest the remains of the Father of our Country. You could have adopted a no more appropriate name for your corps, and 1 hope that you will guard with jealous watchfulness that hallowed tomb. I am proud of your appearance this day, and I remember with pleasure the happy time when I was your captain, and you wrre visited by the Executive of the nation. I President Tyler,) the Secretary of War, the Secretary of the Navy, Gen. Scott, and other* I only regret that I was not sooner notified of your Intended visit; and nothing would have afforded me more plessure than to have presented you to the Executive to-day bad I been apprised of your coming, but as I did not receive the dispatch until 1 o clock it was impossible for me to notify the Executive of your arrival. With the leave of you, Captain, I will now take chargeof the company. The company then entered the houK, where refreshments had been prepared, and all joined heartily in doing justice t# the good things before them. During Captain Snyder's remarks, one of the company, overcome by fatigue, swooned and fell to the ground, but was soon restored to consciousness by his comrades. After spending some tima in the enjoyment of Capt. Snyder's .hospitalities, the corps marched down the avenue, and went through, In a creditable style, their various military evolutions before a large crowd collected on the sidewalks and balconies The company then proceeded down to Seventh street, where they took leave of the crowd and left for Alexandria. how thk students employ thkmsslves at Georgetown College ?We find tbe following in the Memphis Avalanche of the '21st in?t. Georgetown College, March 4, Iffii.

We, the students, after witnessing tbe otatorical gestures of Abe Lincoln in the Inaugural Address, in which he evidently menaces the Southerners with coercion, became so disgusted with him and hit threats, that we returned to tbe College, and resolved to burn th? old rustic In etflay. About a dozen of us arranged his simulaerun dextrously that, in truth, it really battered him \\ e then marched in a mournful procession to a pott, (used principally to consume efiigies.) and there w? hoisted him to tbe height of about twenty feet, where hit frail garment* floated to the biecze as the American flag, was wont to do. which he and hit band of Republicant have to lgnomiuioutly defiled and trampled und?r foot. We applied the match, and lmmeA at-1,7 fl-? - ' >-.1 ' uuiuca mac iu a ?rcai ungiii, owm^w the turpentine with which it was saturated, and amid yells, equaled only by Indians et a war dance, we proposed three groans for the veteran rail-splitter which mad* the very earth tremble. After which three deafening cheers were given for Jefl Davis and the Southern Confederacy. The towering frame of Old Abe was soon consumed by the ravaging flames. We then departed, only regretting that it was not the original. A Student. Theater?The great spectacle drama, "The Sea of Ice," went ofl' llnely last night, and the applause of the spectators was elicited almost momentarily by the beauty of the scenery, the excellent mechanical ettects, and the thrilling points of the well enncted drama. JeflVrson played the part of "Earabas" with qui?-t effectiveness, and though a very diQ'erent performance from the wild burlesque of " Mazeppa," for instance, it yet abounded in touches of masterly humor, which served immensely to relieve the tension upon the faculties produced by the thrilling excitement of the drama. me paru utea by the members of the stock company were performed with average ability; and the brilliant music prepared by Withers and performed by the excellent orchestra was not the least noticeable feature of the evening. To-night the play Is to be repeated, and the reader will find some special announcements relating thereto in another column. Capt. M?okrdkr'? ravalry commend was out this morning In the Monument grounds, whtre they went through a number of movements in tine style, to Hie gratification of a goodly number of spectators whom the company attracted thither.

Magruder is famous for his choice selections, elegant styles and low prices; but his present oiler will take the town by wtorm. Those who have lately called on Magruder have been sent on their way rejoicing; and we say, to ladla, niiss-s. men and boys, together with the rest of mankind, take a look at his superb stock.

Washington, March 25.?Minister Corwin intends leaving for Mexico by the steamer Tennessee, on the 1st of April, from New Orleans The only news we have to-day from Fort Sumter is a dispatch from Charleston, which says.? " The stars and stripes are still visible from tkt ramparts of Sumter?no evacuation yrf." The rumors ana statements are so contradictory that nothing can be depended upon with regard to ths time the evacuation i* to Lit* nlare Th?w < ?.> evident desire on the part of the Administration to be in no hurry about it; in other words, to keep up the heavy war expenditure of the Confederacy, estimated at 825.000 per day, for watching Major Anderson, who would never trouble them if they should not trouble him. I understand that letters have been received here from an officer of Fort Sumter, dated on Thursday evening, which makes no mention of any intended evacuation. The subject is not even alluded to, though this may not be intentional, as it might be Improper to disclose the character of Instructions from Washington. One of these letters was addressed to the wife of the officer, and no allusion made to an anticipated early meeting, or any change in his location. However, It is said, but I cannot vouch for the truth of the rumor, that instructions in relation to an early evacuation were sent to Major Anderson by a special messenger on Saturday, who was expected to reach Charleston this evening. Several leading republicans In the confidence of the Administration have to-day expressed themselves in favor of the partial recognition of the Confederated States?so that they may test the experiment of separate Government to the full bent of their inclinations True the President u? iiu (w?n iu iccu^hkc lucir separate independence, but they propose and intimate that the President favors the project that no obstacle be thrown In their way except the appointment of certain agents to prevent the smuggling of foreign goods into the States bv railroads and river boats, and such negotiations with the Commissioners as may result in a truce to await the action of the next Congress, and a mutual agreement to prevent smuggling.
