n EVENING STAR. Local Intelligence. Til Great Foar.snr Case ? Yesterday, ift?r we went to preas, it was definitely asctr taiacd that much " paper" which had lately b?en pot upon many partite by Col. Lewis Littlepage Taj lor. of Missisaippi, for some jitri paat a elerk in the office of the First Comptroller of the Treaanry wm forged. On Saturday night last suspicion was fin*, a roused, and the forger left the ci'y clandestinely on Monday mornirg it ia supposed. It waaonly yoaterday. however, that the fact of his crime wa? definitely ascertain*}. The forged paper oensisted of many of his own motea purporting to be endorsed by tha Hon. Jefferson Davis, and other paper purporting to b? orders from e'.erka on tha disbursing agents of the bureaa to which each ia attached, for their salaries-? drawn in advance of tha time when dae It is supposed by some that the amount of his forgeriea ia aa 1 ar<<? as twenty or thirty thou tend dollars. This we do not believe, as after dae inquiry, we cannot bear of more than five thousand dollars, and not definitely of that amount. Twee, y or thirty persona, moaey-lendars. clerks, meaeengers, and oon fidirg friends are the victims?essentially con fidence men. That is, men of more confidence in human nature than ragaci y in business transaction. As thfy all appear to have a horror of being known as thos* thus " taken in and dona for," we refrain frcra publishing the list The forger is very respectably connected in Miajissippi. and has a family here?a wife and aaven or eight children, for whom all among us feel deeply, indeed, as no oae is more ds eervedly beleved than the lady in question in her cirole of frionds. He (Taylor) ia a men of intelligence, and heretofore atood very fair, though atwaya bearing the reputation of being heedleea and thrift.cs in money mattera Be looka to be from forty to forty .five years of age, ia about five feet tun or eleven iaches tall, atout built, with florid complexion, blue oyer, and thin brown hair, and wore, on elo; in* from Washington, abort whiskera He is aaid to have been seendrnck in Baltimore, rn Mend ay evening last. Gambling is alleged as the cause of his crimes. It has brought miny men of more firmness, promise, and original character than Le?ia Littlepage Taylor, before him, to the commission cf as bad deeds The anteroom of the Secretary of War pre stated a lugubrious scene, shortly before aooa tc-day. there boing half a dozen of Tay 1or'f vk'.iins seated around, awaiting the op portunity to veiify the endorsement of Gene ral Davis, if possible. "We understand that be pronounces all such paper bearing hia name to be forgeriea P S. From what we learn before g iing to press, we ahall not be surprised if Taylor's forgeriea amount to quite $15,010. Musical Artists ir Washirqto*?The eorrespeodent in this city of the New York Masieal World and Times, writes to that paper in tha following eulogistic manner of artista among us, whi-n certainly argnea well for the advancement ani improved state of musical taste ia our midst: " It ra rem irkibl# what a sodden accession t>\. oily has had lately of accomplished musi t aa.

Tm* Am Know Nothwq Tickit ?oe Ra visort CoDiriaws.?We understand that the member* of the Board of Alderman who ara oppoeed to the party in power in the Councils, have determined among themselves to support the following ticket for revieorv coilflsrs of the District laws, to be elected under the act of the last session of Congress so frequently referred to in the 8tsr, vis: James M. Car lisle, Philip R Fend all, Walter Lenox, Pater Force, aad Charles Abert. ? W* published, some days ago, the list whleh the Know Nothing members of both boards hare agreed to eupport, vis: Jos. H. Bradley, K. C. CarriosloD, John 11. MoCalla, Sam. Sbelon, and Josiah F. Polk. The two tickets beiog now befjre the public, our fellow oitisens ean judge for themselves as to their respective qualifl nations, for most of them are generally well known here A< a matter of course the Know Nothing ticket will be elected, inasmuch as that party are overwhelmingly in the majority in joint meet ing of the Washington Councils. Maekbt Thieves ? Several days ago we stated that the covered stand of Mr. Caldwell, at the Centre Market, was broken open, and half a desen hams stolen therefrom, bat whtah property was afterwards found in the street, the thief being so narrowly eyed by the watch men as to cause him to run away from his booty; and we now have to announce that, since that time, the lccker of Mr. Wilson, the butcher, was broken open, aai a pair of Sal ter's spring balances abstracted The loser offers a reward, as appears by an advertise ment in another column of the Star. We frequently hear of larcenies in the Centre Market such as the stealing of baskets filled with domestic produoe One one occasion, while a lady was purchasing beef, her basket, containing her kutter, (worth $1 75,) together with the kettle, was slilv removed by an in genius rogue who escaptd detection. We conceive it to be our duty to suggest to our readers that they b > watchful while makirg their purchases, for there are always prowlers in the Centre Market " seekiog" for that whioh " they may devour." Ciactrit CouaT ?In this court, yesterday, the case of James Gr. Barry, of St. Louis, egainst James Adams, administrator of the estate of Thomas Law, deceased, was tried and brought ta a conclusion. As we understand the matter, it appears that in 1828, Mr. Barry advance*! Mr Law $250, in part payment for a lot in Washington. Mr. Law being on the eve of going to the Springs, instructed his b.-other E lmund to give Mr. Barry a perfect deed on the payment of the additional $100, which would comprise the entire stipulated price for the property. It did not appear in evidenoe, on the trial. | that Mr. Barry ever offered to pay this last niuiad au <'Unc. and the action was brought to recover the $250 whioh had boon given to Mr Thomas Law. The court instructed the jury that if they believed that Mr Law did not hold a title to tho land, it was not necessary for Mr. Barry to show that he had c(Tared the $100 to Mr. Ed mund Law, or that a title deed had been prof fered to Mr. Barry. The jury rrrJcreJ n verdict for Mr. Barry, ramely. to r? - v?r tho $250, with interest from the j-ir 1S2S to this time, whioh latter amounts to about $-100. Stono and Morgan for Barry, a :d Carlisle for Adams.
