I? VKNING STAR. Local Intelligence. The Comxercemeut ? Aa announoed, the commencement of the Medical Department cf Georgetown College came off last night. Ser. vices were to have been opened by Dr. How ard ; bat he had no sooner made his appear ance than be was called out, we suppose professionally, and did not make his appear* anee dariog the exerciscs. 1IU place *aj supplied by one of bia colleague? After a few pertinent remarks, tbe Preai dent of the College conferred the deg ee of Doctor in Medicine on the following gradu ates : Jofeph C K. Clarke, of Missouri ; Jo seph A. mitb, of Maryland; Lewis Saur, of the District of Columbia ; James Grey Jewell of Mississppi; J. Elward Willett, of Mary land, Charles R Oueen, of the District of Colombia; Joshua V. D Middleton, of tbe the District of Columbia; 0 A Dailey, of Washington City, and Michael K. Shyne, of Washington City After an appropriate piece of mnsio, Prof J. M Snyder, delivered the annual addresj to the graduating class. He commenced by speaking of the idea entertained by some, that the reception of a diploma obviated the necessity of more study. This he pronounced erroneous?the phjsician should oontinue his study wbile be continued to practice; to be u"ll ?ersed in tbe healing art. one must have all the knowledge possible of chemistry, philoso phy, botany, and tbe soience* pertaining to mind and body?to attain any one of these was tbe work of a life time A knowledge of the languages, ancient and modern, though not indisponsible, would be of immense use to the physician, as be would then have access to un translated works of great value to him?there fore he advi>ed the graduates to turn their attention, among other things, to the classics In treating upon the tendency of the age to charlatanism, he reminded the class that ihey had become sworn enemies to quackery. Bat be also told them that they should not oppose it by violence or denunciatory language, but by perseverance in the true course, and by fraternal intercourse nraong themselves This would allow tbe public to deoide between them, and "they will judge you by your works.'' In speaking of tbe duties of the phjsician to bis patient, he inculcated the utmost kind ness. and then spoke in eloquent terms of tbe confidence often reposed in the family phy sician, and advised > he most inviolable secrecy under any and every circumstance. He spoke of the high rank in society often accorded the profeesion, and conjured them to preaetve by an uprght conduct the dignity of their cloth and the reputation of their Alma Mater Prof Snyder spoke for about three quarters of an hour, and concluded ty wishing tbe young doc'ors God-speed in t5eir profession. The exercise* were now cloaed by muaio. du riag which the class received the congratula tions of their friends. The Arrest ok Yolhg Earls.?It turns out that there was a mistake in tbe arrest of John Earle. of the First Ward, (noticed in our police report yesterday,) for stealing a wach It seems that he and the owner of the watch. E S. Farson, were very intimate, and that Earle was in the habit cf taking his watch and wearing it at his pleasure. They were both intoxicated at the time, and he was arrested by Mr. Marion Fenwick, (the keeper of the restaurantin which the sffair took place.) who witnessed the ast. without knowing that they wore in the babit of using tbe watch indiscriminately. Farson was too much intoxicated to make the ezpla nation before the committing magistrate that night. However, next morning, when the matter was before the grand jary, tbe expla nations then and there made, caused the com* plaint against Earle to bo instantly dismissed. More Light?It is a sin and a shame that this city is so pocrly supplied with light. Las; night when everything was of one color? when it was as black as Krebus, as tbe ace of spades, as a stack of black cat?, or any other classical figure?the gas lights looked more like ''dips than anything else. It was so dark at the foot of one cf the lamp p:sts that a man could not see the time of night by his '?gold watch and chain " What is tbe mat ter ' Is tbe strength uf tbe gas in tbe strong ?cent? We propose chat tbe proper authori ties give us less odor and more light. " Joxadab."?The second representation of this piece, by the members of Geo Washing ton Tent. No. 2.

The first representation was well attended, and all who were there are Joud in praise of the efforts of the youths to please in their respective parts, and also of the riece itself. They will be assi. ted in tbe singing by a number of interesting little girls Go all who can, and encourage these youths in their laudable undertaking. Ihportast Case ? On Wednesday evening last, the case of the United States vs. T. S. J. Johnson. charged with false pretenses, c .me up before Justice Clark. Mr. Morgan ap peared for the Government, and Mr J. 11. Bradley for the defence. The evidence was not sufii :ient to justify the magistrate in de manding bail, and the case was dismissed. The c*ae presents some interesting and im'>nr tant points to wholesale merchants. The charge was biuught by a Philadelphia mer chant we are given to understand Death ?Tbe venerable Isaac U.

Arrejt or a Blacksmith Shop.?Last night the guards picked up a portable forge and bellows, Queen's patent, which was found on the street and rather out of place. It was ta ken to tbe guard house, ana there identified as the property of Mr. Haskin's, who took care that it should not be sent down. Large Fi srral ?Yescerday Mr Jeremiah Sullivan, an old citisen cf Washington, was carried to his final resting place The funeral proceeaion was large, and *w composed of many of cur oldest ritisens Mr. Sullivan was a stone eutter. and the society, to which be belonged, was out in a body, wearing their small blue badge.
