EVENING STAR. Local Intelligence. Bad Bots ?It is always a source of regret for us to speak of the misconduct of juveniles. Morals are never improved by boys congre gating at night. The younger ones do not ftil to be influenced by their older associates, and mischief is most always predominant. In ad dition to the annoyances whioh they ocoasicn te the residents in the immediate neighbor hood of their disreputable operations, they aoquire bad habits which seriously affect their growing years for fatnre usefulness Would that the rising generation could appreciate their present advantages for mental and such other instruction as would fit them for honor able positions in Moiety in the time to come While we are far from eaying that boys who congregate in the manner to which we have referred 11 will come to no good," we do nain tain in the language of Scripture, that "evil communications conupt go?d manners."? Henoe the danger In addition to juvenile delinqu^nces hereto fore mentioned, a gang of boys have been in the habit of meeting in the vicinity of Massa chusetts avenue and Ihird street On Sunday last they amused themselves by whittling peo ple s porches and indulging in conversations and vociferations not indicative of decent training. Several nights ago they took twen;v empty barrels from a trader and made a bon fire ef them; and in addition to this they stole a grocer's till and its contents. On Wednes day night the Auxi iary Ouard put the party to an iaglorious flight; and the same fate a aiti all similar disturbers of the peaee and wrong-doers. More dbliobttul Mcsic.?Hilbus A Hits's Music Store was last evening again the soene of a rich and rare treat to the lovers of really good and classic music. Quite a large num ber of appreciating lovers of mcsic were pre sent, listening with undivided attention to the beautiful and correct rendering of Mendel ssohn and Beethoven by M'lle De Boye and Professor Ahrend. The Grand Sonata in D, by Mendelaeohn, lor piano and violincello, was oertainly executed in a most masterly manner by the accomplished artists. Pro fessor Ahrend also favored those present with a most charming Fantasie of Servais on a theme of Beethoven. Only one regret was ut tered by those present and that was, that so few had an opportunity of participating in such an exquisite treat. There was some talk among those present to get up a rub scription concert for the worthy artistes, which, if successful, would no doubt give general sat isfaction at the present too dormant state of classio music in our midst. Thk PruDtr Laws.?Much of the quiet which prevails in Washington on the Sabbath is to be attributed to the law which prohibits the sale of spirituous liquors on that day. But there are persons who, in eonsequecoe of the statute. All their bottle* on Saturday night, 10 as not to be without their supplies on the Lord's Day; and, occasionally, a violator of the law is apprehended and brought to jus tice. In tome of the police districts it is strictly enforced and but little, if any favor is shown to the transgressors Ihe fines are about the same in all cases, and are generally superceded; but, after the expiration of six months, the fines are oollect cd. if the offenders are able to pay, if not, the Ecpsrceders are liable Highwatma* Arrested?While Mr John Higgias was riding between Bladensburg and Beltsville on Thursday evening, a German, wh-tse uame was subsequently ascertained to be Albert Enneris. stopped him, and rreeented a pistel at his breast, demanding bis money. Fortunately. the pistol missed fire Mr. llig gins descended fnm his vehicle and inflicted several blows on the highwajman. who. es j teeming " discretion to "be the better part of valor," took to bis heels He was pursued j and overtaken near Bladensburg. and com mitted to jail to a?ait trial. Americcs Cltb ?Ihe grand moonlight ex cursion and pic nic of the Americus Club, to the White House Pavilion, will take placc on Monday. The Club promise that no pains nor expense shall be spared on their part to give general satisfaction to those who may honor them with their company; a piedge, which, judging from the past, they will fully redeem. The steamer George Washington, which is to convey the party down, will net toach at the Navy Yard in oon sequence cf the nuruber of . vessels unloading there, and the Club give no tice that they will receive their friends from that point at the Wa-hington wharf Hard Fight.?Last night, either fight oc curred in the Sixth Ward, in which about fif teen persons were engaged, and several were wounded The disturbance originated be tween some strangers and several young men residing at the Xavy Yard Mr Andrew French was stabbed and badly injured; but whether hii wounds will prove fatal cannot yet be determined Mr James Dart was se verely eat over the eyes, but it is thought bis wounds can be healed without injury to his sight. We sincerely regret that our usually I quiet, industrious, and valuable citiiens of toe Sixth Ward shoold be se aggrevatod aa to j engage in such scenes. tbe Cibcctt Cocrt yesterday adjourned until this day two weeks, when the question will come before it for decision, whether per sons of foreign birth, naturalised since the 30th of December last, can V6te at the ensuing municipal election?there being a law which requires the registry of names on the poll list six month* preceding the election The decision given last year was to the effect that those who were liable to registry at the proper time, but whose names bad been omitted, were entitled to vote; according to whioh de cision, several hundreds voted Nbw Modb or Collect mo ?Yesterday a ease was brought before Justice Clark that attracted the attention of those employed as oollectors. A gentleman engaged in busi ness in this city had a bill against one of his customers who told him that if he wanted to Est any of it be must " grab it" when he saw im with it. Tue creditor happening to see bis debtor with several dolla'i, came the ' grab game," which so offended the debtor that be we>.t and bad * warrant issued fcr the collector The oase was heard, and will prob ably be dismissed. A NritiHCB ?On the south aide of D, be tween Ninth and Tenth streets, we observe a large block of stone, prepared apparently for building purposes, lying in the middle of the sidewalk where, we learn, it has been allowed to remain for some months past The street, at this point, is a dark one, and such an ebstsu ele to nocturnal pedestrians is calculated to . produce accidents of a serious character. * Indeed, one. we understand, has already oc curred The proper authorities should see that such obstructions are not allowed to exist.

Mr Editor:?Can you inform me what is the law as regards the use of profane language I while a Magistrate's oourt is in session. More especially %eh?n the parties attempt an as \s iult on each, other. The resson I ask is, I that while ? jury were in session a few days I ago a learned judge and one of oar distia I gaished lawyers were opposite attorneys, I quite a fracas occurred, severe oaths were used and chairs raised to assault each other, while the Magistrate and one of our high Po lice functionaries being present no at'empt was made to put a stop to it; and had it not been for one of the jurymen there would have been quite a serious affair. I, as one of the J jury, ask to be enlightened upen the subject, it being my opinion that imprisonment and fine are the penalties. By inserting this, and giving your opinion you will oblige one of your earliest subscribers. Eighth Street. Washirgtor, May 14th, 1855.
