EVENING STAR. Local Intelligence. liica* or Rtrcr.e ?Several years ago, en terprising and philanthropic gentlemen or thii city offered to contribute liberally toward the erection of a house of refuge for juvenile or fendtrs, and the city councils appointed a committee to inquire into the matter, with a Yifw to tho esUoliihotBt of rich to mituu tion. But no plan was agreed upon; nor do we know that the committee even made a re port to the councils in relation to this im portant subject. However, the necessity for a house of refuge, or correction, still exists. It sometimes hap pens that small boys are detected in the aot of stealing, and, on account of their tender yean, grand juries dismiss the charges preferred egaicst them The boys, escaping punishment, ere thus again free to repeat their dishonest practices aad other improprieties, whioh should not be suffered to eaoape strong legal condem nation Oociionally, a boy is tried, eonvicted. And. for want of a reformatory school, is sent to jail, where his association must be with hardened sinners, who never fail to further vitiate him Besides, we h^ve often seen boys committed to the workhouse for petty offenets or as vag rants. At the last-named place, everybody knows that it is an improper receptacle for Juveniles. For want of a house of correction, a certain father has placed his two sons, one of them 11 years old and the other younger, in the marine oorps. as musicians, he being unable to re ?train them. They were frequently detected In lareenies, and wonld have been sent to jail but for the sympathy of the court. A house of refage in their case would have beea a blessing At the present time, there is a young girl in jail, eonvieted of malicious mischief, sentenced to six months' imprisonment; and a youth for attempting to break into a store, in George town. was likewise sent to that prison to serve for three years Now, if we had a house of refage. the last named might be reformed, and beeome useful and creditable members of Society. And so of others of the eharaoier to whioh we have referred. We trust that the humane lovers of their kind, will take some action with a view to the establishment of such an institution. No one can doubt that much good would be accom plished by it; and that many erring ones, under proper advice and treatment, would be taught such wholesome le.-.-ons as would pre pare them to discharge the honorable and use ful duties of life. Easter Scsday ?A more beautiful day thaa yesterday cculd not have been desired by even the most tastidcus. The atmosphere was wholly unobjectionable; the sky cleat; and the bright sun gladdened the face of na ture butreoently washed with copious showers. It was lovely, charming, ealm, presenting a strong oontras. to the preceding Sabbath, when the sharp, piercing wind?moaning, whistling, and hissing?gathered up the superabundance of loose earthy particles, and spread them, in rapidly chasing dust-clouds, over our beauti ful metropolis; thus rendering out-door pedes trianism as unpleasant as yesterday was de lightful Religious services, appropriate to Easter Sunday, were per termed in the various churches of this city; that day being observed throughout Christendom as the anniversary of the resurrection of the Saviour from the tomb?regarded as truly an important event to the believer in the Sacred Revelation, as there on depend their picsent religious comfort and the hopes of a perpetually joyous heme beyond the tomb. Thousands of persons, yesterday morning, between six ani eight o'olock, communed at the several Catholio churches in our city. The congregations of the Protestant Episcopal ekurehes were likewise largely attested, and the holy eommunion was also therein adminis tered In fact, the day was honored in all of the churches of Wsuhington. It may be of interest to many of cu" readers to learn that the early Christians celebrated Easter upon the same day on which the Jews kept the Passover, understanding by the lamb whioh was sacrificed at the fustival, Jeaus, who suffered for mankind. A dispute in re gard to the day having arisen between the churches, it wa<? finally settled by the Coun cil of Nice. A. D 526, that the feast should be held on the Sundty following the first full moon after the vernal equinox, and not on the same day with the Jews. The earliest possi ble day upon which Easter can fall, in any yea* is the 221 of March. It happened up>n this day in 1818, bat according to calculations cannot happen again so early until the year 2,286 The lateit possible day upon which it can ooeur is the 26th of April. Easter Balls.?The lovers of dancing must not forget that there are to be two balls to-night; one under the auspices of tbe Colum- j bia Fire Company, at Jackson Ilall, and the other under those of the Washington Yagers. Fine cotillm music has been engaged for the joyous occasion, Professor Weber furnishing the bands. The balls of those companies have formerly been admirably conducted and largely attend ed, a?d there is every probability that those of to-ni^ht will be thronged with hundreds of participants, including, of course, a full pro portion of fair ones, without whose presence there would be but little enjoyment. Whiskt Fux.?We mentioned, a day or two since, the arrest, snd trial before Justice Clark, of a Frenchman for entering the dwellings of respectable citisans, in the Seoond Ward, stating that ha was dissrssed, with tbe consent of the complainants, after he became sober He had hardly got awav from the magistrate's c&jo before he was linked to his bottle, and at night was taken before Capt. Birch, drunk end disorderly. The unfortunate fellow oould neither speak nor understand English, and oould not give his name. lie was again dis charged, when sober. It is a pity that he can sot aee what poor fun there is in the whisky bottle. ? - Disturbing r s l to iocs wonsnip ?Theprao tioe of young men and boys, of colleo'ing about the doors of ohurches, obstructing the entrances. u?ing profaae and indecent lan guage. is attracting the attention of the police It is an evil that should be abated. The col ored churebes alone do no: have to complain, for many nuisances of the sort are created about the most popular houses of worship in Washington. We are g!*d to see tbe o{Users directing their attention to ;hose violations of the law. Daegerocs Persons ?The police of our city have peraors of this description to man ege sometimes, but they are mostly str ingers. Last night an Italian, who is of reoent impor tation, wi< arrested by 0(fi:er Allen, for did* turbing the peace, lie is man of siaall statue, but reauired several men much larger than himself to subdue him. He was required to give security, which w is given by a gentleman oa condition of his leaving the city. Fraa Alarms ?On Saturday, about mid night, there was a fire alarm, the bells were niug, snd the engine companies were out, but the latter did not proceed to tbe scene of con flagration It was too far off, being in Alex andria, where a stable was burntdown. There was also an alarm yesterday, about 1 o'clock, ? but no fire The machines were probably hauled oat for sport Rav. P. L Wilsoji?This talented young minister commenced his term yesterday at the Niath street Methodist Protestant church. His discourse was of a kind calculated to de light the intelligent and thoughtful bearer, and delivered in a pleasing style. We are of ?pinion he will be popular in this city. Dog Fiea-rua ?This morning a lad was arrested for setting dogs to fighting, and taken to the guard house, where he was ordered to Ky the fine imposed by tbe corporation law is is a nuisance that is frequently oreated in our streets ; but it is costly sport if it falls jfrWT the notice of the police.

As a matter of oourse they will be greeted with a full house, the universal ae companyment of tbeir so amuting and agree able exhibitions in Washington oity. They are at this time second to no other burlesque opera troupe in the country. Prairie on Firs '.?Those terrible fires are s.metimes tbe result of accident, and some time" of design; firing the prairie being one of the moles of Indian warfare. They occur when the grass is dry in autumn, traveling with the wind, and with almost equal velocity, driving hunters atd the animals of the prairie before it in alarm. A representation of one of thore scenes, painted on canvass, in the aeries cf Stanley's Western Wilds, o&n be seen at Odd Fellows' Hall to-night. The Rkv. Dr. Orville Drwby preached a sermon ycserday to a large congregation in the Unitarian ohuroh of this Oity; and the Kev. Dr. Thomas B.

Methodism?Markets. Qkosortowr, April 9,1855. Rev. Mr. Brooke, of the Methodist Episco pal Churoh, delivered an eloquent discourse, last night, on the fuVjeot of "Methodism." The congregation was quite large, and all seemed pleased at the manner in which he handled the subject. The flour market is unsettled at pricos ranging from 19.87i to $10 for standard brands. Wheat is held at $2 42 for white, and $2.36 for red, as in quality. Spectator. ALEXANDRIA CORRESPONDENCE. Election?'Easter?Fire?Amustrrunts. Alexandria, April 9, 1855. The polls for the election of four Overaeera of the Poor, opened at the Council Chamber this morning. Up to the time of closing my letter, but few votes had been polled, and little interest manifested. Yeiterday, Easter Sunday, was celebrated with appropriate ceremonies in tbe Catholic and P otestant Epis -opal Churches. On the night of Saturday, a large stable in the rear of Judge Nealo's residence, was dis covered to bo on fire, notwithstanding the un tiring efforts of our gallant firemen it was burned to the ground Littlo is stirrin^of general interest. George Kunkel and his inimitable troupe will be hera | this week, and nest Monday tho Diorama of { tho Battle of Bunker Bill opens at Liberty Hall. Ami. Fighting in the Crimea. The latest foreign advices, by the Baltic, embrace the details of the coup de m%in as it ii called, executed by tbe Frenoh in the night between the 23i and 24th of February. Gen. Canrobert admi'B that the French loss was considerable, "but not in proportion to the dinger of this nocturnal combat," where, he says, "the soldiers were exposed until they re turned to tbe tranches, to the fire of the ar tillery of the town." The French, it is stated, were badly whipped. The Journal do St Petersburg publishes a Russian version cf the attack upon the ad vanced redoubt on the night of the 23d of Feb ruary. It is as follows: ? To complete tee bulletin from the Crimea re lati/e to the attack upon tbe Sclenghinok re doubt on tbe night between the 11th and 12th, (231 aud 24th) of February, we give the fol lowing details of that affair. extracted from the report of Gen. Ostea Sac ken, dated 15;h of February, (27th) addressed to tbe late Com mander-in chief of the forces in the Crimea: Towards the evening of the 23d the troops destined to complete tho construction of tbe re doubt, commenced on tbe preceding night, were placed as 1'oliows:? Tho regiment of infantry Selenghinck with in the redoubt; the fourth battalion at ths works; the 2d and 3i in the interior of the in trenchments. and tbe first in tbe fosse. Tbe batalions of the infantry regiment Volbynia were advanced to protect the works vis: the 4th in columns of companies beyond the placing* made in front of the redoubt, the ' kt and 2d on tbe right of tbe redoubt, and the 3d on the left, inoolumns of attack. At two ia the morning after the moon had gone down, which bad up to that hour bril liantly lighted up the ground, dismounted Cossacks of battalion No. 8 of tbe Black Sea, who occupied the secret post* in front of our placings. gave notice that the enemy's oolumns were forming in front of the trenchrs. At tbe same moment tho chain formed of the 10:h and 11th companies of muske'eers of the Vol hynian regiment opened a sharp and well maintained fire, and Maj Gen. Khroustcheff, who commanded the two regiments, advanced tbe first and second battalions of the Volby nians, who ware under arms to the right of the redcubt; but perceiving that the enemy, who had penetrated through thespaoe between the second and third battalion, was already at tacking the redoubt, be made tbe two first bat talions turn sharp round to the left and fall upon the flank and rear cf the enemy's col umns, while a band-to hand combat had al. ready commenced in the fosse. The enemy were immediately thrown into disorder, leav ing the fosse fail of dead men. At the same time tho third battalion of the 12th company of muaketesrs of the Volbjnian regiment, who were on tUo left flank, drove back tbe attack of another column, which bad advanced more to the left of the redoubt. Major General Kroutsohcff profiting by this advantage, ordered to sound the oharge. The brave Yolhynians, under his personal com mand, advanced rapidly, putting to the point of the bayonet tbe Zouaves and marines who endeavored to opposo them The struggle lasted for tome time, but the Russian bayonet ultimately prevailed, and the enemy fled in disorder to their trenches Meantime Colonel Sabaschlnsky, with the 1st battalion of tbe Selengbinsk regiment, ad vanced rapidly to support his brothers in arms The 4th company of Grenadiers, tho 10th company, and a detachment of the 11th oom pany of the Velhynian musketeers, joined bim under the oommand of Col Svistchevsky. lhese troops hastened through the path made by the sappers, and defeated a Ffaochoolumn in the ravine, that was advancing to support the Zouaves. _ , .v Twice the enemy attempted to renew the attack, but each time was driven baok with leas to the trenches After an hour s combat at the point of tbe bayonet, during which the Russian drummsrs never ceascd to beat the charge, the enemy waa compelled to retreat, leaving In omr power more than 100 killed, ftoMDg whom were eight to ftUt ? Iom of th? enemy ?u not under 600 men, for during their retreat they were exposed to the heavy Are of the neighboring button*, and of the BtQtmera Vladimir, Chorsonese, and Gro inonosseta, anchored in the roadstead On our tide we had 05 men killed, 5 subal terns and 230 men wounded. The Cincinnati Biota The Baltimore American of Saturday laat Myar "The ani venal oondemation of the riotoui proseedingi by whioh the ballot boxes were broken open and the contents destroyed, shows a commendable popular repentance, but Itean neither reoall to life those who have been slain upon that oooasion, nor can it obliterate the stain upon the charaoter of our institutions, which is now speeding over the world with all the rapidity of steam and lightning. The resolutions of the American order condemn the violence, and attribute it to the diahonw ty of oertain gamblers who destroyed the bal ljtstosave their bets. They also oondemn the {riots in the most unequivocal manner, and repudiate suoh of the members as were con cerned in it We cannot see that the Ger mans could have done otherwise under the circumstances than to resent the assaolts made upon tham. They have, moreover, sur> rendered their oannon, and manifested a dis position to keep the peaoe." Abrican Troops for the Foreigs Legios. ?Tha Halifax Chroniclo of April 1st sayr.
