CITY INTELLIGENCE. I0 ADDITIONAL LOCAI, ITEMS SEE INSIDB TAOE1. CHRISTBIAS EVE ANJ CHRISTMAS DAY. A ereat number of our peoplewhen others Bpke , to ti.em of tl.e terrible din and born. LiowirjH hlcli would continence before duslc nSbnBHtmas ev. dubiously shook their beads, and gave utterance to the one monosyllable Law" As if tberela lay thepower to subdue the rampant and malicious spirits of the old and young, who had purchased tholr long tin horns weeks ago, in anticipation of this one event, Christmas Kve. True It is, an ordinance was promulgated by our municipal legislators, and ienled by his Honor the Mayor, but sluce there were but six bundred policeman to maintain it and about four or 11 veithousaud youngsters to break it, the result is at once evident. And so, before - six o'clock on that ail Im portant evening, like tocsins awakening their fceveral camps, the borns sounded, and trie crowds commenced to parade, headed by shrill llfes, and deafening kettles, and rattling drums, unci loud shouts, until the streets and highways Itemed with uiftiord wuion no nu ol July ouuUI rival. There were more clubs In masiiutrade VHXa tit strati tUfttt UftYe been seen lot si THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, year.a dreased in every conceivable variety of cost time, whose rhlpf fnrtr. seemed to be tooause side spllttlnR IniiKhter and untold merriment. Chesnut, Klnlith, and Hecond streets were nsps rlally (dlH)honorM by these Itinerant bti'ls. Horns (wtTs blown in all their old-lime fre qut'iiry, and some innocent and unknowing old yen t n more tdan once completely knocked ofl bis leet and laid low by some dreadful and nlinost snpeinatuiHl shriek In bis ear. Tue crowd was so K'eat and moved no rapidly on Chennot st i eet, i hnt eighteen thousand passed a plvon point In one hour. On TUKKday afternoon the ofDoe of the Home Missionary Htoletv, In North alreet, near Fifth, was literally beaelaed by the poor seeking food snd fuel, while others of our benevolent instl tullotis were kept no leas busy In dealing out rations, clothltiy, Ac, to the destitute who In their poverty and almost starvation eould know no Christmas Joy. Yesterday, its usual, all the pnbllo offlies were closeo", and the streets were thronged from early morning all lhroui?h thedav, and promenaders would have maintained their, march the greater part of the evening, had not a disngreeahle rain driven them within doors. The Catholic churches commenced their celebration of the festival at the early hour of five A. M., t which time Immense congrega tions SNKembled in all thechrrches. Holemn Htftb Mass was celebrated, tbe Te Oevm chaunt cd.and the ChrlHtmna anthem and hymn were given with much ell'ect. Indeed, the music In the Catholic churehesof this city wasa marked and prominent feature of the celebration of the dsy, lor which the different choirs made credit able preparations. The Orand Mass of Hummel, No. 2, was splendidly sung at HU Augtisliue's Charon, under the direction of H. O. Thunder, superior vocal talent participating in the rendition of the splendid work an essential precaution, ty-the-by, to its success. Klifht Key. Bishop Wood celebrated I'ontiUcal High Mams at the Cathedral, where Hummol's Miss was also performed, n ceo in pun led by the Uermanla Orchestra. The npaclous edl lice was filled by a large congregation, and the main altar was splendidly illuminated, and Morally and other wise decorated. The Assistant Priest, the In aeon and sub-Denoon of the Mass, the Dea cons, and the other ecclesiastical delernious were clad lu rich and magnificent vestments, anil, when the tapers were all lighted, the scene presented was magnificently grund. At the other cimrahes splendid music was given by the prominent choirs, amongst them being the following, who sang respectively the Grand Masses named: Ht. Patrick's, Vou Weber, No. 2, nndar the di rection of Marcus F. Aledo; Ht. Michael's, Mo r art, No. 2, under the direction of T. U. llarklus; Ht, Peter's, Hcheldermayer, No. 1, under the di rection of A. Hertel; St. Mary's, a Mass com- Sosd by the director, Angelo K. Dos Santos; t. Philip's. Mozart, No. 13, under the direction of Henry T. Rochell; Ht, Joseph's, the same composition under the direction of VV. A. New land; Bt. Vincent de Paul (Oermautown), Uacln, No. 8, under the direoilon ol James O'Neill. At the Northern Home for Friendless Chil dren and the Associated Home for Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans, Twenty-third and Brown streets, interesting Christmas festivities took place on Christ tnas afternoon, commencing at 2'4 o'clock. Hinging and recitations by the children; addresses by several speakers; and an extra dinner was served np for the children. The public attended in large numbers. The exercises at the Bedford Mission were none of the letist Important in the city. At 12 o'clock the little ones, with eyes sp trkllng In anticipation of what was coming, were as sembled in tbe chapel, and after devotional ex ercises, under the direction of itev. J. D. XiOng, they hurried upstairs, where huge piles of rousted turkeys, and plates enough for each, filled full of goodies which they had hardly kuown before, and Christmas trees, hanging full of presents, were ready to receive them. This was one of the most Interesting of the Christmas celebrations In the city, and no doubt the kind ladles and gentlemen who were the movers in it were wished many and many a hearty "Merry Christmas" by the little ones Whose hearts they had cheered. In Camden, services of an Interesting char scler were held In the Broadway Methodist Episcopal Church, by the Sunday School, con sls'lng of singing by the children, addresses by the i'utdor, U. A. Cbalker, and Mr. Stltes, after whicii Santa Claus appeared In their midst, stripped the Christmas tree.and distributed the good things it contained among the children. A set of silver napkin rings was at the same time presented to tbe Pastor.au an appreciation of Lis services In this church and Sunday School. This is one of the most flourishing Sunday Schools in our sister city, and did well their part last evening. Fires. About 9 o'clock last night a fire occurred in the dwelling No. 1708 Coxe street. Tbe house Is the ono formerly occupied by the late Samuel P. Fearon, ex-Chief of the Fire Department, and is owned by Mr. Maule, lumber merchant. It Is occupied by Mrs. Miller, an old lady, and a Mr, Simon, wife, and child, Last evening, one of the ladles in the house went into a bed-room, which-overlooks tho rear of tbe dwelling, and setting down the candle she had been carrying, did some work, and then came out, locking the door, and, it is said, leit tbe candle burning. Soou after the flames were seen issuing from the place, having burnt right down through tbe fl jor. The alarm was sounded, but before the steamers eould get at work, the llames had made considerable headway, driving some of the inmates out en deshabille, while an old lady bad to be taken from a third story window. The loss Is about 11200. About 4 o'clock yesterday morning a Are oc curred In the telegraph-room attached to the .New York depot, al Thirty-first and Market streets, aud burnt up tbe operator's coat, hat, etc., and did other damage to tbe amount Of $200. Yesterday afternoon, at 2'4 o clock, a still In tbe coal oil works of William L. Klkins & Co., Fiftieth street and Peuusylvania Hailrond, ex ploded, setting the surrounding property on fire. The destruction to property was not great, although the dense cloud of smoke which arose seemed to Indicate a serious conflagration. A "Joah" om tub Tone;. On Christmas evening about 9 o'clock an officer, while walk ing bis beat on Twelfth street, between South and Hhippen, discovered a man leaning against tbe chimney of a bouse In that viclulty and more than that, this man stood out openly, audaciously taking a coup d'ceil of tbe sur rounding premises. Tbe Idea "burglar" at oace presented Itself to the mind of the offi cial, who, with great Intent on bagging his game, called bis brother officers to the number of six, and when they bad surrounded the premises, cutting oil' every place and point of egress, and stood with brandished clubs and revolvers drawn, ready to annihilate that bur glarious individual did he attempt resistance, demanded bis immediate surrender; yet be fuzed down npon them with still greater auda city. '-Wait till I draw a bead on Mm," cried une of the officials, and he did so, fired his re volver, and down came the man, bounding from the eaveson to the sidewalk. Quick they tried to relieve bim from bis palu, and one F lulled open his vest, shoved bis hand beneath t, and lo found bim to be a man of straw, and nothing more ! Peut Larcenies.

Henry Honohne and Bernard Parr, young sters, between the ages of fourteen and seven teen, were arrested on Washington avenue for twisting the necks of a number of plump geese on Buck road, tbe day previous. Alduruiaa Mink commuted them. James Carpenter, with a degree of coolness and audacity that was a matter of comment lor some time, went into Koofke's lager beer saloon, at Twelfth and Poplar streets, on Tues day last, and picked up a quarter barrel of beer, and before the eyes of the assembled Teutons, gallantly walked oir, but not far, for he was arrested, and committed by Alderman Massy, Bold Robbebt. About 8 o'clock on Christ mrseve, a man purchased some trivial article atScbwarz'i fancy toy store. No. 1000 Chesnut street, and handed the salesman a bill to take tbe amount out.

Washington, Dec. 28, General Grant has just had completed for bis private residence a splendid oil painting, nine feet high by seven feet wide, containing por traits ol the General, Mrs. Graul, and their four children. The scene Is cast In a wood. General Grant is represented standing erect, dressed in Lis full uniform. Mrs. Grant is silting on a rus tic bench, with little U. 8. Grant, Jr., at her side, and in the rear is Fred, the West Point ca dets with hli gray jacket, assisting his sister Nellie, who Is seated on her little pony.

WASHINGTON AFFAIRS. The Bt. Tbontu I'arcbsis- Internal Revenue Matters, Kle. From th N. Y. Herald of this morning. BT. THOMAS ANTICIPATED OBSTACLES IN THB WAT OF PIRFECTIMO TUB FURCUASI. Washington, Dec. 25. The anticipated diffi culty in securing the appropriation ot funds by tbe llouse ot Representatives necessary to con summate the purchase of Si. Thomas appears to be not the only obstacle in the way of the United stales perfecting the acquisition of that island. From a gentleman recently arrived from 8t. Thomas I learn that, as tbe time approaches for the people to determine by tbeir suffrages whether the island shall remain under the juris diction of Denmark or be transferred to the Uoited Slates, the inclination to allow them selves to remain as they are grows stronger. This feeling is not tbe result of any hostile sentiments towards our institutions, but a desire to avoid Ibe hish rates of our port duties. As is known, the ouly stippoit of the present sparse population of St. Tuoruus is its trade wltb ths adjacent inlands aloDg the Spanish Main. The geographical position of the i.laud renders it convenient of access to vessels passing to and fro in tho great highway of commerce between North and South America. Tbe preceat customs about one and a half per cent, ad valorem being .of so small an amount, obviates entirely the necessity of warehouses, and precludes any inducement to fraud. Undet the present system the merchants aie conleut and able to do a profitable business, and they fear tbolr trade would be entirely ruined by an increase of duties. It is thought by thoso well advised that it will be necessary to satisfy the traders of the island, who arc the most influential portion of the population, by some special les-islation to suit tbe duties of the island to the circum stances of the trade. By not making these provisions, they think the population, from a thriving commercial peoplt, wi 1 be reduced to a few officers necessary to administer the Gov ernment, and tbe requisite laborers to coal ships upon tbeir arrival, while the business will be confined to the few merchants require I tosutply the bhippiug and a trau&ieut popula tion. INTERNAL REVENUE MATTERS. There is some excitement hero among the Internal Revenue official, caused by tue an nouncement that Mr. Wise well had an -assurance that be would receive tbe appointment to the office of Commissioner ot Interifal Revenue. It is rumored that Mr. Wise well has a remark ably large and influential endorsement. Many weu known and wealthy New Knplaoders and Western men are ptessing his claims, aud there seems to be very little question about his con firmation if the President should send his name to the Senate, which is not yet quite so certain. It is said that the whole movement is one in the Chase interest, and many of those who have endorsed the claims of tho ap plicant -are active and zealous partisans of the Chief Justice, and are anxious to see him fill the position now occupied by Mr. Johniton in the White House. Together with active aLd influential politicians, Mr. Wise well, it is said, has also received the support of the most wealthy distillers in the country, and tbe President, during the past week, expressed his astonishment at tbe interest manifested in securing an appointment to an office of which the salary is uJy $5u00 or f G000 a year. It is, however, in reality a political movement in the interest of Mr. Chase, and some curious developments may be looked for within the next few weeks. There are many rjmors afloat respecliug Mr. . Wlsewell's lortuer transactions with the Revenue Depart ment, and more especially his proposed whisky speculation. The Commissioner, it is alleged, at one time gave a permit to remove a large quantity of whisk; Iroin bond on papers which were not either transportation or redistillation bonds. This transaction came to tbe knowledge of Mr. Wlsewell, who, it is said, immediately waited on tbe Commissioner and asked permis sion to remove a quantity of whisky from bond on papers similar to those referred to. The Commissioner is reported to have refused the pern.it, whereupon rumor asserts that Mr. Wisewell said he had a right to insist on the permit being grauted, as a similar permit had been granted before. This led the Commis sioner to examine more closely the papers Which had previously been presented. Finding t tie m to bo illegal, he immediately notified the recipient of the permit of tbe fact, and at the same time refused U grant Mr. Wisewell a per mit on papers of a similar character. Such, it is alleged, is tbe history of Mr. Wisuwell's abor tive attempt to embark in the whisky trade, AN INDIANA HORROR A Thief Thrive Hnar and Literally Hoasted to Hxtract at Confr sslou, From (ha Chicago Tribune, Dec. 23. On last Thursday the police authorities of this city received a desputcu troin Elk hurt, Indiana, setting forth the fact tbat ou the previous day a guu store in that village had been feloniously entered, and robbod of several valuable fowliug pieces. The weapons were minutely described, and the matter was giveu into the bands of De tective Kelly. This vigilant officer immediately proceeded to work up the matter. During his peiambnlatious anion the pawnshops be espied one of the guns desorloed, which bad been sold but a moment before. This led to tbe discovery bt tbe thief, aud before night the latter was t sconced in tbe armory, The came of the lu dividual is John Seymour. Ou the following day a oobstable from Elkuvt t&e prisoner la charge and convoy! Mm. .JECEMBER 26, 1867. seen of his depredations. The village to tnt. ' to is one of unusunl quiet, and hence rrferrea -tions had been made for the recep no prepare Tisnncr. For the want of a jail, tlon of tbe v Hotted a room in a hotel, at the Seymour wa a. constable was placed in tbe door of which th. m. During the night the capacity of eentliK --uo a peaceful slum tired "entry fell n of blissful unconscious bcr. Whilo In this stale . -red the apartment ness two men quietly fnU. -.rirp. It appears and took tbe prisoner inchv "Villtam Collins that one of tbe party, named v -iluable gun' had some time previously lost a v that Sv and at the time of the thelt stupcctev. - itidlvl. mour was guilty of the act. The o'.he. rapn dual was a friend of Collins. Tbe two n(j proceeded to the woods with their cbarae, v .'. deliberately placing a rop about rnours neck, told him that be must otlhjr confess where he had deposited the gun, which they believed Le bad stolen, or die. lie answered them with blasphemy and vulgar epithets. Thereupon the rope was drawn, aud Seymour dancled between heaven and earth. When he had hung but a lew moments the rope broke. Rut he had scarcely time to recover from the eovere choking when he wai again drawn up, but with no better success. Tbe cord Spain gave way. Neat the men dug a pit in the ground beneath the tree, and therein built a roaring lire. They tuen doubled the rope, placed it again about Seymour's neck, and gave him a last opportunity to make a confession. lie still refused, and a moment after be hung from a stout limb by a strong cord, immediately over a blazing fire. In another moment he was literally ablaze, snd then be. gave token by looks and Bicns that be was ready to confess, lie was immediately cut down, con siderably the worse lor the fire, and then he made a full confession, besides designating the locality where tho gun had been bidden. He was then returned to the hotel, and ntrain placed in tli e room he had previously occupied, and Anally the vigilant constable was shaken lrom his slumber, and soundly abused for not attending to bis business. His entire story certainly sounds very strange, yet every fact mentioned is literally true. RAILROAD LINES. JDEXN8YLYANIA.

TbePrrsleleDt v'nl General Grant yesterday both spent their Clu.'',tmft' t home with. 4helr families. The Preside1 dd. not leave the Whlt House all day. His Frlv'4' Secretary, Colonel Moore, accompanied by IIu1 C. E. Creecy, of the Treasury Department, hve gone to North Carolina to spend a week In gaitnln. The city Is shockingly doll. The nen-resldenlff Lava nearly all gone home, and at the Departcwnt and the President's Beceptlon at the WAtto llouse this a. u. very few persons were prese.trt and scarcely any business was transacted. The War Department wus closed to visitor promptly at twelve, but Secretary MeCulloch In sists upon bis employes remaining the full num ber of hours, which causes much dissatisfaction amoDg them, especially when they see tha crowds of War Department clerks promenading the streets. The day is warm and spring-like, and so ardent Is the sun that the shady side of the street is the most comfortable , lor pro menaders. Statistics on flic in the Treasury Department show that tbe cost of maintaining the detective force on land to prevent smuggling amounted to about $20,000 durirg the laatjcal year, and the estimated value of tbe goods seized by them for violation of the revenue laws during tha same period amounted to $1,268,000, besides between $200,000 and $300,000 assessed upon offenders as fines and penalties. The revenue cutter service, on the other band, cobt the Government over twelve hundred thoa sand dollars during the last fiscal year, and the estimated value of the seizures made amounted to only about twenty-three thousand dollars. It is likely some important reformation in the latter branch of the service will be made, for, as at present organized it costs the Government large earns of money annually, without render ing much service In return.
