LOCAL NEWS. AMUSEMENTS TO-NIGHT. Grovrr'r Theater ? Mr. b. W. Glenn, who Mu managed Grover's Theater for a week or two put, takes a benefit to-night, and will appear In the amusing character of "Haver sack." in the "OldGuard." GeorgeO.Charles, Belle Lmelle, and others of the company will alse appear. Caktkrburt. ? Another performance of song:, dance and Ethiopian eccentricity will be given to-night. WobTht of attwttiok.?On Monday night a communication from tbe commissioners of the H?ylnni and poor bouse was transferred to tbe Hoard of Aldermen relative to making the asvlum and womnoune remunerative by com pelling tbe inmates to labor. The commissioners say that In the law made lor tbe government of the asylum it is a fund amental principle that employment must be provided tor ail persons in the asylum capable of ary spei ies of labor In order to carry out the law it is requisite that someone of the com missioners shall be authorized to apply funds impropriated by the corporation for tbe asy lum to pnr.hase raw materials, majhin^ry, tools and implement?, and to dispose or all artici. sroade np, wove, spun, knitted, picked, cr otherwise prepared. The commissioners believe this could he dene with much advantage to the cjrpora tion It is 1? year-* since the law was passed, and it is in effect a dead letter, when if properly carried out ?5<>,UGO might have been realized by workbouse labor Trie name of workhouse as applied to the institution is a misnomer and the inmates spend their time in idleness, plotting mischief. To carry out the recommendations of the Commissioners it will be requisite to have one of thtm designated to give his whole time to the superintendence of the work, with such additional remuneration as would be proper, kand there is no doubt that the Corporation "wonid be larg-ly a gainer by the arrangement. Wot only could a large sum be gained by the labor, but ttie prisoners themselves would be benefitted by being kept out of idleness. More over, it would have the effect to keep away a host of la/zaroni w ho hate work and patronize the almshouse only so long a3 they can be boarded and lodged in idleness. This swarm of vagrants have b?en a terrible burden upoa the Corporation, and by pntting them to hard work ?s last as tbey reach tbe almshouse they -would beareafter give that institution a wide berth The communication of the Commissioners ?was referred to the asylnm committee, which will, we trust, give the matter early attention. War Department Rifles.?The above is k'he title of the regiment compos'd of clerks from the different bureaus of the War Depart ment. The regiment is composed of good ma teria], and will undoubtedly make a fine ap pearance, and be of great service to the Gov ernment in case of an emergency. The men have been armed, uniformed and equipped in all respects similar to a regiment in the field? the nniform consisting of a dark blue blouse, light blue pants (like those of the Veteran Re serve Corps 1, and army regulation caps. The ?flkers have beer commissioned by the Secre 'tary of War, but services rendered under the appointment are to be without pay or rations, and the regiment has been organized under the *mmed.ate supervision of Brigadier General James B. Fry, Provost Marshal General U. S. A. The men composing this regiment have been sworn into the'service of the United Sta'es for the term of three years, and it is under stood that tbe Secretary of War has orderei the erection of a suitable building tobeus^d a.1- an armory. Tbe following are tbe officersCapt. Sim'l Iiar.a. l?th U. S. intantrv. Colonel; Captain Franklin H. Barroll, 2d U. S. infantry, Lieut. Colonel; Capt. Geo. E. Scott, V. R. c.. Major; Surgeon J. H. Baxter, U.S. Vols., Surgeon: Jjieut. Ale*. A C. Klaucke, Adjutant; Lieut. C A McLaughlin, Quartermaster. Cojitaxns.?Co. A, B. W. l>oud; Co. B, H. E. .Scott; Co. C, N. T Hartshorn; Co. D, H. Doug lass; Co. E, J H. Edson: Co. F, L. L. James: Co. (J. R. A. Hills: Co. H, G. C. Putnam: Co. I, J. T. Usher; Co. K A. B Butts. The regiment drills for one hour every after noon, Snndays excepted, in the grounds be tween the War Department and the President's House. LArcEwr Cases.?On Wednesday evening, Henson Jackson, colored, complained at the V nth precinct station that he had been robbed cf a five dollar bill by W. White and George Urent. colored, and they were arrested by of ficer A-hton, who took them before Justice Jieswell. It appeared that the three were in a bouse where the accu-ed were playing cards, and during the game Brent stated that he had ?Jost ?3. White proposed that all should be searched, and several submitted to the opera tion, but Jackson refused, at the same time laying a five dollar note on the table, which Brent pocketed. The Justice held Brent to se curity for court and dismissed White. On the same evening, a colored boy (Daniel . JJncklev) was arrested by officer Barker for ?robbing the mcnev drawer of Wm. Fagan of 97.55. and he was taken before Justice Bos well, v hocommwieu him to jail for court. The money bad been carried to a stable and hid m the hay, where it wa? found by Mr. Fagan. The Mod* of Canise Slaughter?The use of strychnine by the police in the killing of dogs found running at large without being muzz ed, as required by law, has been pro hibited by ihe city authorities. The Superin tendent of Police has therefore detailed two men in each ward to 6hoot such animals. The order v as issued Tuesday, and on that night the Fourth Ward officers tested their skill in tbe use of fowling-pieces by shooting twenty five dogs. If the men detailed in other pre *.4ucts are as successful as the Fourth Ward punters, tbe cartmen emploved by the Corpo Tation will be kept busy for a few days. From the number of dogs yet running at large un muzzled, it would appear that their owners are rather anxious than otherwise to get rid of their v orthleiis curs. The Riot Casb.?Yesterday morning, while tbe trial of the parties charged with participat ing in the riot, near Branch Hospital, on Thursday, in which Robert Stroupe,rtih Penn sylvania cavalry, was killed, was progressing before Justice Cull, the military authorities ? In a measure aba'ed the nuisance, by pulling down two of the shanties near the scene of not, one ol \*hich was occupied bv Mrs. Ann Thompson. Subsequently officers Shelton, Crraut, and Br> nran arrested Mrs. Thompson and Richard O'Kieff, the former for selling without license and to soldiers, and the last ' ?amed for selling to soldiers, and they were froth fined $20 each by Justice Cull. I Im><? Shooting.?Oflicer Walling and Shel ion have oeen detailed to destroy dogs at large in the Sixth Ward, and are rapidly extermi nating the canines who have not the wire muz ale over their smellers. On Wednesday after noon, in the prosecution of their business, tbey abot a dog on the corner of East Capitol and tto streets. A Capt. Cambell here abused the officers for the act, and while so engaged, his dog showed itself on the street, and being un. muzzled, was also shot, and this enraged the Captain np to tbe boiling point, and he became ?o disorderly that he was arrested and taken before Justice Cull, who fined him *2.5(1, and txplaired the law on the subject. R*r r.riTTOG at tub Navy-Yard.?The officers at the Navy-Yard are using more cau tion in shipping men for the Navy, and con sequently tbe number accepted is smaller than formerly ; nevertheless, the average number per day is about twelve accepted. There is but one clerk employed in shipping men, and frcm the number offering he finds it almost impossible to attend to all. At present able tfodied men are received as substitutes, but boys are only taken as volunteers. During the last tw o or three weeks over 2<>0 have been ?hipped. Af?AL LT*D.?Thursday afternoon, as Henry Dott her. a soldier, was passing up 4* street, B- land > three other soldiers, N. H. Douglas, ruev Lynch aiid Wm.

They are exceedingly agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all other tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant is required. They purify, etrengten anil invigorate. They create a healthy appetite. They 9re?.an antidote to a change of >> ater and diet. They overcome effects of dissipation and late hours. They strengthen the system aud enliven the mind. They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers. They purify the breath and acidity of the stomach. Tbtycure Dypcpsia and Constipation, They cure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera Morbus. They cure Liver Complaint an 1 Nervous Head-? ache. They make the weaK strong, the languid bril liant, and are exhausted nature's great-restorer.

For particulars, sec circulars and testimonials around each bottle. Beware of impostors. Examine every bottle. See that it has D. 8. Barnes' signature on our pri vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate engraving on side label. See that our bottle is not refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy any per-on to match the taste or character of our goods. Any per.-ou pretending to sell Plantation Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an importer. We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person imitating this bottle, or Billing any other material therein, whether called Plantation Bitters or net, is a criminal under the U. 8. Law, and will be so prosecuted by us. We already have our eye on tl^o patties re-fllling our bottles, ice., who will succeed in getting themeelTes into close quarters. The demand for Drake's Plantation Bittera from ladies, clergymen, merchants, Ac., is perfectly incredible. The simple trial of a bottle is the evidence we pre sent of their worth and superiority.
