Local Intelligence. Franklin Biilding Association?There %aa a very large number of pereona of all callings present at Temperance Hall last night, at the organ: ration of this new associa tion, and a great deal of enthusiasm was taac ifested. The meeting was opened bj John S Hollingshead. Esq . being called to the chair, and T. M Hansou to act as secretary. After the transaction of some other preliminary basi nets. a constitution was adop'ed ; after which, on motion, a committee of fire was appointed by the Chair to nominate the officer* prescribed by the constitution, who, after retiring awhile retorted and made their report, and the lol lowing < ffiiers were elected for one year, the term of serv'Oe to commence from the first Monday in April next: President?Henry Barron.

Dyer, ZM Penn>-ylvania avenue, and at T. M ilan s n s, 512 Seventh street, where the lists will regain until the first Monday in April. The Theatre?The representation of the '?Serious Family" and "Kaising the Wind," at Iron Hall, last night, went iff capitally. The company improve nightly, as they be come better acquainted with the houso and Washington audiences. Mr. Weaver seems to have taken our hints kindly, inasmuch as hi* Aminidab was performed on thi? occasion with much better tact-5 than on Saturday night last The audience testified their gratification (if y times in the course of the evening, and left tho house, one and all, in moat excellent humor. To night, they play "Kill or Cure" arid ' Follies of a Night/' two atandard pieces. Mrs Walcott. who sustains ^ier talented hus band very effectively, indeed, makes her fi at appearance here cn this occasion, and will, doubtless, be excellently well received As east, the public may rely on it, both the pieces to be repreaented to night will be well worth teeing, tor they suit the oompany exactly. We anticipate that besides Mr. and Mrs Walcott, Mr Weaver, Miss Howard, Miss Tyson, and Mefsrs. Norton and Newton will make great hits in these two favorite pieces The Mei.hahic'8 Ihstitdte?We invite the attention of ail who carry on mechanical or manufacturing business in Washington, Georgetown, aod Alexandria, to the conve nience for their business wi?h each other afforded by the new exchange room which tho Mechanic's Exchange Association of Washing ton have caused to be hited up on D street, in the Bank of Washington building. Already they ire beginning to resort there to arrange contracts with each other, and to obtain the multifarious information concerning the cxact condition of business in which they are inter wed. most readily to to obtained through a free interchange of views and tacts among themselves We advise all our master me chani-'s who desire to avail themselves of .i'l tho means within their reach, to the end of conducting their business to tho very best pc sible advantage, to apply without delay for admission into that association. Cincerellv?The circus was well attended last night a large and fashionable audience being present. J he spectacle of "Cinderella" was received wih rapturous applause, each if its many beautiful and interesting points be ing eheered aa it should have been The horsemanship of a!I the performers who ap peared in the course of the evening was re ceived. as usual. ?ith great favor, as well as the fea's of agility and proleeaional skill for which the c mpany of Myers and MaJigjn baa ao high a reputation. Their representation, this afternoon, should be well attended, a* at this time this estab lishment, on Wednesday aod Saturday after noons, is the only place of emusement open for the children ot the city. To-night, they of course play again. A Dl.?Af.REEARLE AND DASr.ERoCS PaVK ment ?The pavement on the north side cf 1) street, between Eighth and Ninth, has. for many months past, been in a condition render* ing it hardly passable without plunging over shoe top in mud and wate-r in bad wea'het" It ia proper to put up with such a condition of thing) for a reasonable time while building may be going on; but not for three or foor times aa long aa would be necessary with or dinary diligence to complete the work. A dcten citixens have aaked us on as many dif fereut occasions to cail the attention of the corporation authorities to this nuisance as we Duw do. our patience being, like theirs, ex haoated. Tee El Djru?o Uocse.?We invite atten tion to the advert i-emeiit of Mr. Reynolds, (late of WiHard'*,) who has opened one of the finest he uses in tbia city. We have tried him. and knew what edibles, drinkables, and amokables he can fu-nish. and take pleasure in letting our friei.ds know ot it. Besidea the eating ealoon. he has fitted up the seoond atory for supplying fuppers for any sized party, from two to fifty The fitting up cf the rooms are such as every one would like? easy quiet, and comfortable The reason we like Reynold's, is that one can get there whatever ;.md of one wants at short Bo t ice Catgut Again?Uilliam Vmberfield and Michael Murpfcy, who broke j til on Monday night last, were caught yesterday by '.'fficer Keese an l Watchman Ward, who started in pursuit of them as so'n as they were misled They were tound about twelve miles fiom here on ite Fairfax road, in company with a farmer, to whom they had represented them selves carpenters, unl who bad employed them as ?uch. Mucn credit i* due the officers who ap| rehended them for their perseverance in the search.

Tie Navt Yard To-night.?Mr Heller's entertainment at tKid Fellows' ilall. to-night, U; judge fr<>m the programme i ffered. will be one ot the best ever given in 'his city.

ON the liih day ol March, 1&5.1,an advertisenient tha~ my i;>M>ds had been distrained aud would be sold at public auction for rent One George E. Kirk, appeared iu the Evening Star. As such an adver tise r.ient, i! unexplained, would have the tendency to injiiie my credit, w hicii is my only fortune, and only means of supporting my family, I make the fol lowing statement: ? iu the 1st day of Au>.'iu-t. 1854, I entered tnu? an agreement to lease, lor liveyea>s,from Geo. E. Kirk the part of lot No. ?, iu Square No 437, and preui i.-es, tor ,?t4(K) per annum. Mr. Kirk on his pan agreeing to furnish a new planing Machine am! ali its fixtures, at his c st, and have them finished fully tor uai within two months from said 1st Ati^ut , 1K.VI. This Mr. Kirk failed to do. The 9aid ma chine was not tinish<-d and httel up for use for two months after the time'specified. This was a great loss to me. The planing machine was worth more than all the machinery ?>n the premises. Mr. Kirfc further :tgreed to build a buck shop on said ground, move and set all the machinery, and put them in ^oivj luiining order, at his own cost and exjiens . Mr K.rk liaa entirely failed to perform his part ?t agreement, ami ? el demanded of me the payment o! the full rent of ?400 per annum, lor a n old ehop without root oi glairs in the windows, or shutters to keep out tin cold. It i? impossible lor a iy one to work in the shop in r uny weuiher, or to keep any thing dry. A cannot carry on business in the tho|i in iu present condition. I think when Mr. K. wi i?b* the matter well in Ins mind lus conscience will not let liiui charge me as much rent (or an old shop that is m a manner worth nothing, as I have iiad t ? pay for a new ? ne. It Mr. K. had demanded ! of me i small and just rent, I would have settled it with him, notwithstanding the failure to comply with his agreement. J. \V.
