A**sst*d amd Committed ?Lest Saturday Bight, four colored boys were brought to the guard-hcuae by watchmen Mockbeeand Stat ley. They are oharged with assaulting and attempting to rab a Mr Coxson on the Satur day night previous on M street north. Their names are Frank Bell, George Wilson, John Hansen, alias Mann, and Danl Hall. Some of the evidence agaisst them is very positive, showing that Mr C was struek on the head with a piece of marble, and when down one cf the%illaias went to him and searched him Not getting prtbaby what he wanted, be turned and stamped upen Mr C. and won: off The injured man then dragged himself to a poreh near by, arid laid down upon it. We are told that Mr. Coxsen is still unable to get out Captain Birch sent the negroes to jail for a further hearing Captcr* cf a Stronghold.?On Saturday sight, two brothers, named Cusick, invade i the premises of a man named Shrhan, on Four-atd a-haJf street, near English hill, and, while he waa in bed, made a brutal a'-tack upon him The heroes then retreated to tbeir own domicil, and barricaded the doors as a measure of safety. Justice Donn, between 12 and 1 o'clock, hearing of the outrage, pro cared the assistance of four or five members of the auxiliary guard, and went to the "cas tle." They in vain knocked for admittance; the brothers in their fortress refusing to sur render. The besiegers failing to gain ingress by quiet means, proceeded to force open the door, in which effort they, after much toil, succeeded, making use of billets of wood for that purpose. The assailants finding them selves surrounded by the invaders, inglo riously surrendered. Justice Dcnn committed the brothers Cusick to jail to await trial. [COU1ID5ICAT1D St Vincent's Orphan Asticm ?The citi aens ef Washington are generally interested, more or less, in all ita institutions for charity, and in none have they taken deeper interest than in the Orphan Asylum, fctsnded many J ears since by the venerable patriarch. Father latthews, who was looked upon, indeed, as a ?4 father" by all Christians of this community, without distinction, as waa sufficiently mani fested by the universal respect paid to, and oonfidence reposed in bim, not only by his own flock, but by the clergy and laity of other denominations. Tfcis Institution, called " St Vincent's Orphan Asylum," was deer to his heart, and while in health and vigor, was the object of his unceasing ca-e and solici tude, and in death was remembered, as tho<e alone can remember whose heart and soul are governed by pure cbarity. It ia understood that he bequeathed to this institution, sub stantial evidences cf hii paternal and undy ing leva and solicitude for its welfare, exten aion, and perpetuity Ilis bequest ia under atood as having specified his donations sepa rately to the ftmait branch and to the male braneh. It is well known to the community of Wash ington, that some years since there was a flourishing male branch of this Asylum, where about fifty orphan boys were eupported and educated and a large number of day scholars of tender age were taught the usual branches of a plain education, which male branch was interrupted, for the time being only, by the withdrawal of thws who had it in charge. It will also be remembered, that ia the autumn of 1853 Father Matthews and the other tros* tees of St Vincent's Orphan Asylum, pub lished their det^mination to eolleet funds and re-establish male branch, and it was again re established under the charge of the '?Christian Brothers," who had already ool. lected several erphan beys and a day school of several hundred scholars. But these Chris tian Brothers have been withdrawn from their engagements with the truftees of 3t. Vin cent s Orphan Asylum, to the detriment of charity and distress of the orphan and widow, and 'he male branch of the Asylum again in terrupted, as it was in 1845, by cuutes beyond the control of tfis trustees. Bat a law of Con grass and the feelings and sympathies of the people of thi* community being warmly in its favor, it is devoutly to be hoped that it will be renewed with vigor, for the reoolleotions of the past The sympathies of theoharitable paople of Washington, and more especially those of the flock of the venerated Father Mat thews, by whom it was founded, will never , consent to the annihilation or destruction of j this truly christian and Catholio chari'y.' The excellent provision already made for the care and protection of orphan girls by the noble edifice corstructed by the trustees of that asylum, is a sufficient guaranty of what they can again do for the poor orphan boys, with tea blessing of God and the support and en couragement of the good people of this com inanity, who have had no reason or oaase to withdraw tbelr confidence from the charitable gentlemsn having the care and control of St. v iacen; ? Orphan Asylum. Bernard. Robbing a Fbiend ?Yesterday, officer Busber arretted a man named John Clepard, who was charged with stealing $25 from a poor fisherman, named Daniel Quail, who had been working at Cawood's landing, and was returning home with his wages. Clepard was with him. and Quail waa his friend before he was robbed. Clepard had no money, and Quail'a money was his pay for his work during the fishing season Quail's loss troubled him very much, and all who beard the circum stance* sympathised with him. Justice Bates sent Clepard to jail to await a requisition from iht Governor of Virginia. T? Policb ?We received, this morning, at the office of the 5th District Polios, the list of arrests made by officer Wise of that distriot. last week It is a long list, and presents a var.ety of caiee under the oriminal, as well as the corporation laws.

Britton, were arrested for fighting in the street, by eoonty officers S< vwart and Norwood. They were taken oetore Justice Waona'l. who held both to security for peace. They immediately ap plied to a polico magistrate and obtained a warrant for the arrest of Mr Stewart, charging him with swearing in the ttreet This 1> a oorj -.ration case, and the penalty if found gailty, is a fine The complainants think that fern about is fair play."

Mat Ball ?Mr. Carnal will give his May Ball to morrow night at his Saloon. This gentleman was the first, we believe, who in iroduoed such festivals in euroitv. lie has taught more than one generation the polite art of dancing. His former scholars, as well as others, will, doubtless, be therein large array, and a delightful entertainment may be antlol* pated. ? ? Discordant ?A young man named Robert Cro;s was arrested on Friday last by officer Wise, and committed lo jail in default of se curity by Justice Bates. He is oharged with upsetting an organ grinder and breahing his instrument. The offence caused considerable discussion out doors; many persons arguing that the aot was meritorious.

Mr. Editor: I bad the happiness of being present at the two grand May Festivals late y given in Washington, and wish to give pab ieity to my opinion conoerning them With Prof Munder's I was highly pleased; but with M. Cocheu's I was far more than pleased i ?I was delighted. One dance in particular was admired, not only by me, but by all pres ent of refined taste I refer to the 4 Minuet ?le la Cour and Gavot de Vestrys " This danoe cxcels anything I ever witnessed in my life, and the manner in wbioh it was exeouted t.y a Master axd Miss of M. Cocheu's school. hsfB-s description. They were loudly and deservedly applauded by the very fashionable und refined company present. This dance waa the favorite at the polished court of Louis XVI, of France, and held its rank supreme in all fashionable reunions as the most finished in its graceful and beautiful movements, which can be but conducive to a noble and easy deportment in the dancers. I never saw it danoed before, but have be-ird many stately dames of old giving glowing de scriptions cf it. M Cocheu has again intro duced this dan:e inte society, and I hope ere long to see it assume that rank it held at Louis's court in all the fashionable soirees, balls in our country. This, however, was not the only dance wor thy of praiw. The caohucha, Bohemian polka, <fco., but in mj haste I had omitted to mention the nymphs garland dance; all were admi rable dances, and were admirably executed The latter (nymphs garland dance) deserves more than a paasing notioe It was executed by six misses, one ot whom represented the roguish boy Cupid, who, with bow and ar rows, watched for an opportunity to pieroe the hearts of the lovely nymphs. It was a perfect allegoric representation, and made one fancy himself in fairy lands, or living in the times of Virgil and Ovid, and that he ac tually beheld the fabled divinities of old. The prima donna of this dance executed her solos with much elegance and graee, and elicited the loud and frequent bursts of ap plause so justly due herself and instructor. Ere ooncluaing, I must beg of M Cocheu that he will give a repetition of his delightful Festival, and thus afford to many persons, whose engagements prevented them from be ing present last Tuesday evening, an opportu nity to witness those delightful tableaux and of juding for themselves.
