EVENING STAR. ! LOCAL AFFAIRS. Mitts Native Group.?We have repeat edly spoken in the Star of the progress made by our countryman, Clark Mills, in his American works of art. Some of j our articles have been copied into papers | in other cities as magnetic telegraph dis patches, and without giving us the least credit. But that is matter we will make all square by and bye. Our present object is again to call the attention of the public to the artistic group of statuary in contemplation by Mr. Mills. That eminent artist has al ready gathered the principal animals of his group, which will embrace a buffalo, a deer, two wild horses, and two Indians, mounted, armed, and in pursuit of the game. The statue is to be of colossal dimensions, and the apex will be from fifty to seventy feet from the ground. It is designed to perpetuate, in bronze or native stone, these memorials of our country. The finger of time is constantly des troying the pictures, ungravings, casts, and modern mementos of th...

EVENING STAR. Chinese Love Letter. "We tfbink we might safely venture on ? that perhaps not half-a-do2en? if ?ny?of our readers have ever seen a genuine Chinese love-letter. We have, tfcough. Recently, in Ainoy, a marriage was concluded between a son of the an cient family of "Tan" and a daughter of the equally old and respectable house of "0," and the annexed productions, we are assured, are literal translations of the letters that passed on the occasion between the fathers of the young couple. Her* we have the proposal of the father of the bridegroom: "The ashamed young brother, sur named Tan, named Su, with washed head makes obeisance, and writes this letter to the greatly virtuous and humble gentle man whose surname is 0, old teacher, great man, and presents it at the foot of the gallery.

EVENING STAR. LOCAL AFFAIES. Handiwork of Abolitionists.?Any of our | -citizens who will take the trouble to walk j through and around our city, can see what the skinflint abolitionists of the North are doing for us. There was a time when it was possible to preserve order among the negro portion of the popula tion of A\ ashington ; but then the groat majority of that portion were slaves.? Now, since Mrs. Stowe and her compatri ots, Solomon Northrup and Fred Doug lass, have been exciting the free negroes ot the North to " action," and someof our resident " philanthropists" have been ac ting as agents in that " holy cause," our city has been rapi llv filling un with drunken, worthless, * filthy, gambling,1 thieving free negroes from'the North, or runaways from the South. Impudence is a virtue, so considered by their secret j backers; and it is no unusual thing to hear of negroes insulting white ladies in our streets. rJ his city is the neutral ground upon which the abolitionist and so...

EVENING STAR More Horrid Murders. It has become our painful duty to give an account of two, and we presume three, new murders committed in this county. On the afternoon of Tuesday last, a man by the name of George Lake, a clock and watch repairer, residing in the town of La Grange, brutally murdered two of his children, aged two and four years, by chopping them almost in pieces with an axe ; he also knocked his wife down, and struck her on the head with the axe, wounding her so seriously that there is no chance for her recovery. As nearly as we can get the facts, they are as fol lows : He first knocked down his wife with the axe, and then struck her a blow with it on the head ; he next seized the oldest child, and dashed it on the door sill with a force probably sufficient to kill it, and then with the axe cut it horribly, almost in pieces ; then went up stairs and seized the youngest child, which he threw out of the window, and chopped it as he did the other, with the axe, renderin...

The Republic asks, Is the country con tent with the progress of the Administra te { and, as usual, very complacently answers its own question. In doing this its editor remarks: " But let not the Administration or its friends deceive themselves.

LOCAL AFFAIES. Important Arrest.?Last evening was a busy one with the police department cf Washington. The news having been re ceived here that a man named Joshua Anderson, of this place, had killed a negro in Williamsport, Md , the police officers were soon under the impression that he would return here before attempt ing an escape to any other part of the country. The Auxiliary Guard took the matter in hand, under the orders of Cap tain Birch. Early this morning, Messrs. Frere and Cox, of the Guard, reported themselves with the accused in custody. He was captured near Bladensburg, Md., and was no doubt about to make an at tempt to escape to one of the Northern States.

LOCAL AFFAISS. Arrest and Commitment.?After consid erable labor, the police officers have ob 1 tained what they consider the end of the string that leads to the unravelling of the mystery of house-burning in this city.? On Wednesday night, two young men named Richard Jones and Richard West, were arrested and taken before Captain Birch, charged with an attempt to set fire to the Northern Market house. Both the young men were immediately committed to jail for a further examination, which, we understand, will take place to day.? The detection of the persons who have been the leaders in the recent acts of in cendiarism in this city, will be hailed with joy by all. In different portions ot our city, property holders through fear of those villains, have been obliged to act as friends to them. Several have b en bailed by persons who have acknowledged that if it were not for fear of the destruction of their property, they would have let the offenders go to prison.
