Local Intelligence. .. ^ Eblioious Movxmsxt ?An effort it bains made in the Protestant Episcopal Churches Id this District, the object or whioh ia to diffuse the teachings and charities of the Church mora extensively than ia now dona to individ ual* and localitiaa in thii District Wa, \fj request, publish tba following "an peal for tha church," which fullj sets forth lha benefits to be accomplished, aod tha means to be employed: ?ue-eeus ?'For tha purpose of providing for aaited aod systematic effort, tha Convention of the Diocese, two yw? tinea, enacted the eaooo far the maintenance and extension of religious worship and instruction. In accordance with 1 this canon, central committees have been ap* J pointed, whose operation!, coextensive with | tha Diocese, are excited to farther the objects of missions, education, and the publication of boofca and tracts. Local committees, acting subordinate!j for the same objects, have been I ? appointed In the sevsril counties of the Dio oere and tn tha District of Columbia. The lo cal oommlttees are composed of all the clergy men* and three laymen from each parish. I The duties with which the oommittee, in this 1 District, isoharged. are? | u First. To provide one or more miasionaries I who will seek out the poor, the ignorant, and the ainful, and proffer to their acceptance the gospel of salvation. I " Sooood To establish schools for the teach ing and training of tboee children who are new growing up in ignorance and vice. And " Third. To distribute Bibles and other hooks and publications for the instruction of the ig norant. *' These objects commend themselves to the favorable consideration of every good citizen; | but especially. It is believed, will every friend of religion hail in this movement tbe mani-1 festation of a desire, on the part of the Church, I tn be engaged In the fulfilment of her great mission. To jtrtaek th? Gospnl to the poor, I and will be amiou to extend his influence and his aid in furtherance of the good design <4 Wishing to bring this subject to the aUen-1 tioo of the people, and desiring fo invoke the cooperation and kind sympathies of all who j may be induced to aid its progress, the oom miuee have determined on inviting the I ehnrches in this District to a meeting, at I which the objects of the organization will be I set forth in addresses to be delivered on the I occasion, and motives will be presented f or I efficient action to all who de>ire to see the in-1 floe nee of ohureh teachings carried to thai homes of the destitute and noglccted. | " Accordingly the committee give notice, I that a public meeting will be holden at Trial* I ty Church, on the evening of Tuesday, the I 6th day of June, at 8 o'clock, on whioh occa-1 ?ion the objects of the organisation will bel more fully detailed, and at which time, n col-1 lection ia aid of thoee objects will be taken up. " It is earnestly hoped that there will be a general attendance from all the churches in the District, and that all will be prepared to give a literal contention. For to earry out successfully, the objecta contemplated, much effort and much self-devotion, and mush money will be required But when Chria tians are engaged in co operating with their Divine Master in the high and holy work of ex ending the gospel and kingdom of their Lord and Saviour Jegus Christ, selfish considerations are apt to be absorbed in kind and generous charity, which is most blesaed when most disinterested." Finn?It is our unpleasant duty to record the occurrence cf another fire?from all that we can learn, the work of an incendiary. Last night, between 11 and 11' /clock, flames were seen issuing from the two atory brick building on the corner of Eleventh and B streets, occupied, one part of is by Mr. bum mers as a feed atore, and Mr. John Pettibone as an offioe for the sale of ice. and the other by Mr. Drew as a dyeing establishment. The lire, in a very few minutes, extended to the brick house on Eleventh 8treet?the upper part in the occupancy of Mr J. D. Free, car penter, and the lower in that of Mr. Driver, turner. These buildings, we learn, were tbe property of Mr. George Hnszel Adams The flames next swept to a brick-nogged bi ilding. In the aame range, belonging to and occupied by Alfred Lee. a colored man. aa a hay de pository. The respective tenants of tbe prem ises each sustained a considerable loss, which, in addition to tbe destruction of the housed, cannot, we presume belerstban three thousand dollars; and, it ia said, there wasn ? insurance en any of the property We may here state that this is the fourth time that Mr. Pettibono has been buret out during the last two years But for the efforts of the fire companies, the deetru:tion would, d>ubtless, have been con siderably greater, as several tenements ia the immediate vicinity were in imminent danger of total deflagration. As it was. they sus-1 tained injury, which n hundred dollars may repair. Some inconvenience was experienced in the engines getting close to the scene of conflagration, owing to the obstruction in the atreet?the lumber piles The Franklin Fire Company, first on the ground, were tbe last to ! leave it; they remained at work until a late hour this morning; a circumstance worthy ol especial mention. Since writing the above, we learn that Mr. Ad^itiS had icade applioation to several insur ance* companies, but that they refused to in sure his house* on account of the combustible character of their contents His loss, we learn, is at least fifteen hundred doliara. Arrival of Gcaso Shi?# ?The ngrieultu rai community in this immediate neighbor hood will be gratified to learn that our fellow eitisea, Mr Fitshugh Coyle, has just received direet from the Chinca Islands, two cargoes of Peruvian guano, per ships " Leland" and ??

That done, the largest class ahips ean reach cur whar .es without difficulty or detention. MauRiaeE.?We were one of the large num ber of peraona aasembled at Wesley Chapel, yesterday afternoon, to witnei3 a marria^o ceremony; Mr J 11 Daniel, the leader ot the , choir of that eburch, conducting to the altar Miss Mary Wheeler, and Kev.

In compliment to tbe happy pair, the choir sung with fine effect, the ?' Bridal Chorus." The twain took the four-and-a-half train of cars for a wedding tour. . Pcslic MEETi*G.?-There was a large and animated political cdeft'.rng at Bail's Cross +>oads, yesterday afternoon, where, for some hours, ike questions of the day were debated by French S. Evans, E?q , andCapt Carring ton, of Washington city, and Capt. F. M C.

The religions ceremonies take place between eight and eleven o'clock in the morning, Mr Hermon, of this oity, officiating. There are about twenty members attached to the congregation. The Jews throughout Use world celebrate this great event. Assaclt aid Riot?Yesterday morning a young woman who was in tha National Mon ument fquare. looking for a cow whioh had been placed there, was assaalted by several lads, who were encouraged in their indecent conduct by two older head* One of the boys was arrested yesterday by offioer Stewait, and held to bail for ooort by Justice Ciark. W? were informed this morning that the older ones had left in the cars. The lndeoenoyof the behavior of the party is surely worthy of punishment, a*?d we think the ol'ier ones should reeeiTe it. The Race, yesterday, ore* tha Columbia ' Coarse in Alexandria county, was a very fine one. A large company was present, and the track was in exoellentr- order. T'ue race was a single dash of a mile for *300, between Mr. J. P. New by'? sorrel horse Loudon and King A Co.'s bay filly. They get off well, the horae slightly in the lead for half a mile, when the mare passed him and kept a'nead ail the way home, being preesed to the girth by the horse until the olose of the race. Time, 1:51]. j We understand that theiw is to be another race there between the sa'jae animals on Sat urday afternoon next. Trimyixo the TRBFi? "We noticed this morning workmen in the pnblic service trim ming the trees along Pennsylvania avenue; and we mention this for the purpose of saying, in connection, that those healthful, refresh ing, and beautiful street ornaments, are prop* erly appreciated by the Government authori ties, and worthy of their especial oare. Night Drills.?Most of the companies at tached to the volunteer regiment are endea voring to perfect themselves in military more ments. Each night in the week some of the corps are on drill in the streets, and attract a great deal of attention. Last night the Ameri can Rifles attracted quite a crowd to the ave nue near Seventh street, to witness their move ments in the rifle drill. The Ballet TRorra.?Several days ago we stated that Sheldon's Ballet Troupe had left the ctiy for " parts unknown," forgetting to "pay the printer;" and now deem it an of justice to state that the agent has come for ward and discharged his pecuniary obligations 'to this office for servioes rendered in the line of advertising. The Boo he Rifles leave the city this af ternoon on a -rand military and civic excur sion down to the White Honse. A brass and s.ring bhnd have been engaged for the occa sion. Dancing, sociality, good oheer, and fe male beauty are among the attractions. The Cor cert this evening, by the Marine Band, at the Presidents' Grounds, will doubt less be largely attended; the weather being pleasant, add such performances not being in the least abated in popularity. Bcxker Hill.?The enterprising proprietor of the beautiful diorama of the battle of Bun ker llill will exhibit it at the Odd Fellows' Hall, Navy Yard, to morrow night. Fast Driviso.?This morning. Geo. White, colored, was fined five dollars and cos's by Justice Morsell, for violating the city law against fast driving. Watch Rettrm.?The docket presented a clean sheet this morning, and there were no occupants of the lower sleeping apartment. CITY BAnRLGN. To wander forth and listen to those harmonic* sweet and dulcet symphonies with which the Presi dent regales hu vi-iters every Saturday afternoon, constrain us to call up that palmy period when "Music, heavenly Maid, was young." Alt who par ticipate in such festive assemblages should know that proper attire in a matter of vital importance The discreet and thoughtful are aware that no ar rangement of dress is effective, unless in connexion with one of Bitt &. Hop*!**' superb and delicate White Beavers or French Feltt; the latter they have imported directly from Paris, for the particular pur pose of gratifying their numerous patrons. rJ heir stick of fine furni hing fabrics, various and cheap, is second to none in Washington. They rigidly ad vocate quick sale* at small gain ;, and through such proceedure are empowered to tell superior goods at much less than is ordinarily demanded by most firms in the same trade. They are always prepared to greet their friends at the old Stand, corner of Penn. avenue and Sixth street. Uood, as a poet, created many enthusiastic ad mirers, and ois u Sor.g of the Shirt" will always awaken the most lively interest, but H. O. Hood, No. 418 Pennsylvania avenue, is continually receiv in? the most artistic Jewelry, embracing the whole extent of plain and ornamental goeds. His choice st,*ck ot Gold and Silver Watches, from the lowest to the highest grades, are well worth an examina tion. Whatever shapes the wealth of Uolconda or California assume, they can always be found at his store at the most reduced rates. Eco*ovy is a principle of acti~# wbieh, d ,enm_ ciously adhered to, is productive of the most bril liant success in every avocation of life. Bicit apd W.

His arrangements with New York and Philadelphia auction houses are such as to place in con stant receipt of many desirable goods, much below the regular rales. Scmvek is already diffusing her ple&sing and glo rious influences. H?r fragrant breath is on the gale The approximating maturity of sweet flowers, the blithe and joyous carol of the feathered psalmist, as he defls his old and assumes a new and more beauteous attire, proclaim the early advent of gen tle, balmy, sprightly Summer. To pursue the ex amplesso strikingly afforded by contemplati ng the matchless operations of uature, we should be pre. pared t j greet the delectable season, so shortly to bud into vigorous life, with a proper regard for its re quirements. Therefore, it becomes Uie bounden duty oi tvciy r?gbt minded man who has not as yet j paid bis complimei.ts to Messrs. Wiesekfeld & Co to repair forthwith to their palace Store, and secure a suit ot their cheap and tasteful summer apparel Messrs. W. Sl Co. are obliging and gentlemanly in their deportment, and are enabled, through their ex tended and extending facilities, to gratify the mo*t fastidious at extremely low rates. It seems like surplusage to ad j, in tbis connection, that they can be found at the Odeon Hall, corner street and Pa. avenue. Another DnrcTT Keiter m the Tombs Stabbed ?It is not many daya ago that a deputy keeper in the City Prison was aovere ly wounded by a mmoonfined on oharga of murder, and yesterday Robert Cunningham, another ot the assistant keepers, met with a similar fate, at the hands of John Allerton, detained to answer a cemplsint far assault and battery Allerton was looked up two or three days ago, sine* which time he haa become partially deranged, and in that condition yes terday paraded the foarth corrider, flourish ing an open dirk-knife, which he retained in his posiession after arreft Mr. Cunningham, thinking to take the weapon from Allerton, followed him to his cell, the door of which .1 ha opened, when the l?tt?r rmshed at the depu ty, and stabbed him In the thigh, inflicting ft d*ep and severe wound, but not neoeseanly dangerous in ita character ' Cunningham then grappled with the desperate man, and in hit efforts to rescue the knife, the long sharp blade was driven through hit right hand, sev ering some of the arteries and penetrating al most to the bone. Thii wound is oonaidered the most dangerous of the two. Assistance was at onoe procured, and Allerton was com pelled to surrender. The dangerous weapon wfti ftt onoe taken from him, and the prisoner safely confined in a cell, where he will do no fjrtherharm.
