t:V KNING STAR. Local Intelligence. The Circts ?The pig t.^ee, lut sight, wiu a greet affair in lis way, tome twenty g*ntl* m?n of Washington (as annoutised from the stage) were the contestant* There was rcally great sport in it, and for fifteen minutes the house waa kept in such a roar over it as one rarely hears even at a circus. Piggy's tail be* ing well greased, andlpiggy being very heavy and Strong, catching him and holding him tarned oat to be very different things, indeed The gmtlnmn entered into the spirit of the ?port decidedly, tumbling over each other re peatedly, in their eagerness to distinguish themselves in the novel contact. The dancing (1. a. jigging) was not very spirited, and went off rather flat. The horse manship and other exe cues by the company proper, however, amply made up for the de ficiencies of those with blackened faces. Nothing of the kind superior to the riding and athetotic exercises of this company were ever s*enhere. M ile Rosa, as usual, was greeted with unceasing and unbounded applause. The little ladie is a very witch in her way; riding, dancing, and singing with equal grace and su periority over all others of her sex who appear In the ring in this country To night is the last night of the season. Everything that the oompany can do to render the evening's entertainment pleasant to those attending will of course be done. The contest for thasplendid banjo will be a very exciting one, a? well aa the dancing contest, other and superior dancers having entered for the prise To orown all, a Washington city clewn ap pears for the first time in " the ring," and rumor says that he is actually no other than an ex member of Congress Well Execctbd Portraits ?We recently ?njoyed the pleasure of seeing portraits of General Cats, Senator Reward. General Cush. ing. General Houston, Ex-President Tyler and one or two distinguished persons executed by a young artist from New York. Mr. Carpenter, who had a studio in this oity last winter. He is now executing a second piotureof President Pierce, a profile picture, having not long since painted one of that gentleman for some person in New York. The pictures to whish we refer above, are remarkable works, inasmuch as while they are ail singularly striking like nesses, they are not only executed meet skil fully, but have a lifo-like appearance rarely to be found on eanvass. Understanding that they will shortly be deposited for a time at Taylor A Maury's, now really the Wash ington temple of fine arts, so far as paintings are concerted, we advise all Washington admirers of portrait painting to call there and see them. Fasnt Morast ?This lady's rendering of Pauline, in the Lady cf Lyons, last evening, at I run Hall, waa fifl% acting in all tho pas sionate pas?igea of the text and character. She did not, however, please us so well in the more genuinely feminine scenes incident to the piece. Yet whatever we may think of her comprehension and rendition of the part, the taste of the large and really critical audi ence appeared to be exceedingly gratified, judging from the frequent rounds of applause bestowed upon her. lo-night she playa Mrs. Hallar, in t&e Stranger, and Lady Elizabeth Freelove, in Charles Eemble's capital petite comedy of A day after the Wedding. Ihe character of Mrs. Haller, it will be remem bered, is one of extreme pathos throughout? one in which, therefore, she must make a very gTeat impression, as the peculiar characteiis ties of her style are pathoa and passion. We trust a lull house will patronize her this even ing. as we are very sure that our playgoers oan find no more agreeable entertainment than Iron Hall will afford on this occasion. Criminal Cotp.t?Pharnella Skinker and Delia Uasel were this morning placed on trial chargad with having, about two weeks ago, poisoned Cassy Williams and others of her household. Mr Lasky appeared for the de fence, and Mr Woodward for the United Stater Mrs. Williams testified that, a week before the poisoning, ahe had a difficulty with Delia Hasel, her next door neighbor, on which occa sion the latter ran after her with a bottle, ex claiming. " Let me kill the She afterwards sail ahe wouid have satisfaction, even if she went to the penitentiary for it. The poison, as we have heretofore stated, was put on meat, in the yard of Mrs. Williams, and of which food Mrs. Williams and others of her tamilj partook the next morning. All the parties made sick by the drug have recovered their usual health. The trial was progressing when we left. Ornambstal Paistimg.?We have seen some beautiful specimens of painting, executed by Messrs Varneliand Man kins, whose place of business is on Louisiana avenue, between Sixth and Seventh streets. They have recently painted a number of the United States coats of arms far the fctate Department, to be for warded to our Consult abroad, to indicate their business offices The representation of the American eagle is handsomely delineated, and the lettering is in the highest degree creditable to the artists We with pleasure refer to the work of those gentlemen, in order to inform the public where they can have ex aeuted ornamental painting in all of its branches. ??? Vaccination ?Some weeks ago, the Mayor of Washington directed the several ward phy sicians to perform the act of vaccination on the "out-door poor" who had not yet received it. This courae was taken in view of tha J prevalence of small-pox ia other cities, and rom an apprehension that the dreadful con tagion might extend to Washington. Other clajaea of the community had the means of at tending to their own health, hence the atten tion of the Mayor to that which we have men tioned. Fire ?Last night between the hours of ten and eleven, a fire broke out in the dwelling of Mr. Joseph Cross, in the Seventh Ward, which entirely destroyed the building. The greater part of the furniture was saved by the exer tions o( the neighbors. The fire broke out when the male members of the family were away, and before they could return and be of any assistance the dwelling was destroyed. We have not heard what the loss will amount to, but it will fall heavily upon Mr. Cross, who is an industrious and respectable citnen. Improving?Many of our wcrthy and in dustrious mechanics are opening their spring work in earnest In every section of our oity, neat and comfortable houses are being erected, and by the industry of the mechanic and laborer. It will be a gratification to all to sea tha " waste places ' built up that there may be dwellings enough for the pocr ani the rich The Jackson Llillisg Association is the name of a society to be added to the list of those of a similar character now existing in this District. Its proceedings are to be trans acted in the German language, in order to afford persons who do not as well anderstand the Anglo-American an opportunity to under stand fully all its movements and purposes. Arrsst ?Officors Wise and Simonds have arrested four youths, who are accused of rob' bing the fair oi the Mechanic's Inatitate. The artioles taken were jewelry, a gun, Ac. The gun was found, and the jewelry has been traced to where they had traded it away. The boys were taken before Captain Bireh, who held them to bail for coart, and they are now waiting the action of the grand jury. Drparturr ?The beautiful automaton sing ing bird has closed his levees at Uilbus A Hits's, and gone to New Yoik for exhibition until the remaining ohancas are disposed of No leas than three thousand persons have vis ited the little songster since bis sojourn in the music store of Jlilbus A Hits. Ban Bors ?We hear many complaints from persona living iu the Seventh Ward, of gangs of boys who rove afcout the Islands stoning houses, breaking windows, doors, A;. The Captain of tbe Guard would do well to direct tome of his men to the neighborhood of 4i street below F, where the children appear to delight in this tort of mischief.

[commubicatbd. Ma. Editor:?We were heppj to notice some remarks in your paper, a few evenings since, upon the cultivation of taate, calling 1 the attention of yo?r readers to the water color paintings now exhibiting and for sale at Taylor A Maury's book store We are glad of any effort to bring this class of paintings into notice; oil painting having always had the prefereooe iu this eountry; while In the old country, where art has been both culti vated and cherished for so many yeets, the preference has been given to water color paint ing. Any one, at all acquainted wirh art knows how much more difficult it is to rroduce a fin? effect with water colors, than with oils. Id tho one case, great oare is requisite to give a clear transparent effeot to the picture, as is the case with those of Philip'., which are fine specimens of the art; while in the other, if the true effect is not produoed by the first effort, it may easily be* corrected by repaint ing, or by painting the whole out, whioh can not be done with water colors. Great care, as well as a high degree of knowledge in the mixing of the colors is also necessary, to pro duce the right tint, and when once produced, a skilful hand and a well cultivated eye only, can put those tints upon paper, to produce the proper effect. Some effort has been made in our city, to cultivate a taate in this department among the young, and we were happy to notioe some fine specimens of their work at the late Me chanics' Exhibition in this city. Why no notice was taken of them, or premiums award ed to the producers of these works, we aro quite ignorant; but hope our citizens will not long remain inactive upon this subjeot We also observed that no notice was taken of the productions of the School cf Design, connected with the Institute. If the Institute wishes to encourage art, and bring their school into notioe and repute, it could not have been more ineffectually done, than by awarding pre mium-! to works of all other institutions, and neglecting even to notice the productions of their own. We hope something will be dose to correct! this state of affairs, and that those who have it m charge will see that the school is p.oper y encouraged and brought before the public X. Watch Rrtcrbb ?

Newspapers and telegraphic despatches "rom every section daily bring to us the an nouncement of such occurences. Humble, ob scure, as well as prominent members of society are their own victims; and the means of self destruction are generally well contrived, so as to insure the dreadful pu'poses. In our own city within the last fortnight there have been two death by suicide In the one case, a rude knife, and in the othera gun, were the fatal instruments. Water, poison, the rope, fire-arms, the steel, in fact whatever will check the warm life-current, are the means to effeot the 6hooking end. Nor are the causes fewer than the implements of death. Col McCluag. the daelist, committed sui cide on the 26th inst. at Jackson, Mississippi. While tha southern telegraph wires bring us this intelligence, from another direction?Eos ton?we learn, by a similar means of commu nication, that yesterday Ihomas J. Hooper, the paying teller of the Merchants' Bank, hunghimse.f in the cellar of that institution. It is oertainly painful te hear cf so many oases of self-destr 'ion Life, at best, is not so long that it need be shortened by extraordi nary means, in advance of the certain decay of nature. Anti Tobaceo It appears from the reports of the proceed ings of the Massachusetts House of Represen tatives that the use of the hall was requested to enable a gentleman from Fitchburg to there deliver a free lecture on the injurious effects of tobaeoo upon the mind, body, and morals? to say nothing about the injurious effects of tho weed on clean floors and nice carpets. The application was disagreed to, without a eount. A wo weeks ago, the Rev. Mr. Cadden, a member of the Baltimore Methodist Confer ence, in vain appealed to his olerical brethren to meet him at a specified place to form an anti-tobacco society; but the next day he came into the conference room, and abandoned his prcject in despair So it appears that le jislators a^)d preachers will indulge in their fine cut, oavendisbi "rough-and-ready," ? Jenny Lind,'' and all the other varieties of chewing tobaoco, and smoke their Havanes, or pipes tillod with the American vegetable. To surrender the use of tobaoco would be to 'ignore" a prominent Ameriaan characteris tic The chewing and smoking of the article comes to the male gender in this oonntry as naturally as Yankee courage and a knowledge of fire arms. * PCBLIC DoCUMBBTS ABD PUBLIC PBIBTIBG. The newspapers in every direction are pub lishing an article from the Rome (N Y ) Sen tinel. stating that one and a half tons of Con gressional documents are iying in the Prst Office-at that place for the Hon. Caleb Lyon; and that others are daily expected. "What a member of Congress oosts'* is the imposing heading of the artiole The printing of the late Congress will cost, it is said, two hundred thousand dollars, and therefore it is no matter of wonder that mem bers of Congress are so plentifully provided with documents, many of which are fur distri bution amoDg the people. Though the amount of money appropriated for this purpose is large, it is better to expend it even for printing than to permit unprinci pled schemers to abstraot it from the treasury without a corresponding benefit to the people. Babb Mabia ? The Philadelphia North .American in speaking of the proceedings of the Pennsylvania Legislature, says that Bank oharters are granted with an apparent reck lessness and immoderation which have not in a great while been equalled in that State.
