LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Thb Abrbst or Chabpbstieb ?Weywter day gave an accoant of the well-managod pursuit and arrest of Charpentier, the princi pal iD the great railway fraud in France, aud since bare learned some additional particulars. Mr. Knight, of this city, the gentleman who detected and arrested Charpentier, prior to leaving New York eity in pursuit of the adroit fugitive, armed himself with a warrant from Justice Osborne and also with one of the ad mirable executed photographs?or rather Tal botypes, upon pasteboart. of Charpentier, du plicates of which had been sent from France to assist the police officers in identifying him. This portrait, however, Mr. Knight found of little or no service in consequence <>f toe ffac tual manner in which Charpentier contnvod to disguise his appearance by shaving off his whiskers, cropping his light-colored hair short, and dyeing it a jet black. His French accent, however, and the polish of his manners, at onee betrayed him on his arrest. Charpentier on leaving New York mr.de various doubles, taking different disguises at each turn, and finally assumed that of a com mon laborer upon the farm of a person by the name of Qatfield, some three miles below Can terbury, and in the neighborbotfti of New burgh Here he imagined himself secure, aud great was his surprise on being summoned from his bed to deliver himself into the hands of justice. For two or three days previous to the arrest, Mr Knight, who unaided, had followed the fugitive through fell bis doublings and dis fuises with unerring directness was concaaled n the woods in thevicinity of this farm hous*, watohing to be sure of his man. Upon the night of the arrest, having formed his plans, he engaged the services of two Newburgh offi cers, without letting them into the secret of the party to be arrested, though their curiosi ty was naturally highly excited, and tboy ventured numerous conjectures, at one time supposing it to be a seduction case, at another a burglary, and then that it might be con nected with the great French robbery, which idea they, however, rejected as improbable. About half-past nine o'clock at night. Mr. Knight with the officers drove past the farm house in a wagon which they left at some d<s tance in the shade of a fence, and then re turned to the house. Leaving the officers out side to prevent an esoape, Mr. Knight knocked at the door, and enquired for a person con cealed there. The man who appeared at tLs door denied the presence of any such person in his house. Mr. Knight thereupon took a can dle from the hands of a little girl who stood in the passage, and proceeded to examine the house, and in the second room he entered found Charpentier snugly esconced under the blan kets, with a handkerchief tied about hi* head after the French manner. Mr Knight arrett ed him as stated yesterday, hand-cuffed Litn and took him to the wagon, and then the party started for Newburgh, taking care as they re passed the farm house with the wagon, to be well provided with arms in ease of an attempt at rescue. No such attempt was made, how ever, and if the prisoner had any confederates about the premises they were doubtless par alysed by the unexpectedness of the descent. We have already described the solitary j our ney of Mr Knight t> New York city with bis prisoner, and his arrival there in the dead of night. One of the New York papers would seem t? intimate that Mr. Knight treated his prisoner with severity in leaving biin hand-cuffed sit the Sixth Ward station house; but we learn that Mr. Knight pr< posed to remove tho hand cuff", and that they were retained at the express gug gestion of Captain Dowling, for the geater se curity of the prisoner Sj far from treating Charpentier uukindly, Mr. K. gave every j-os sible attention to his comfort, and while wait ing for the train on crossing the river at New burgh, had a fire built for his accommodation and abundant refreshments provided Having lodged his prisoner in the hands of the officers, the next movement of Mr Koight was to secure a deposite of concealed val uables, of the whereabouts of which Mr. Knight had obtained a clue before leaving New York in pursuit of Charpentier. but which had not been followed up lest it might alarm the con federates and interfere with the successful pur suit of the fugitive It had been arranged that immediately upon the arrest of Charpentier, information should be conveyed by telegraph to New York city, and that a search should then be made for tiie property. In eonsequence of the arrest hav ing been made at night, it was impossible to telegraph the fact, and consequently Mr. Knight hurried through to New \ ork as rap idly as possible with his prisoner, to prevent the alarm being given to those implicated, and took prompt measures >n his arrival to have a search made before an opportunity was afforded to the confederates to secure the secreted property This property, some $21, 000 in value, was found in a small soldered tin box, enclosed in a wooden box about a foot square, buried under the brick flagging of a cellar in the basementof house No. 11^7, West Sixteenth street, occupied by a house carpenter named Frederick Couvet. Tha box containing the valuables was further protected and concealed by a couplc of tons of coal Mr. Knight, in his plans and their success ful development for ihe apprehension of Char pentier and the discovery of the property, relied entirely upon bis own resources, with the single exception of the aid afforded him by the Newburgh officers at the tarm hou.-e. Maxwkll's.?We hare recently visited the original Ladies' Cloak and Mantilla Emporium of Maxwell A Brother, No 328 Pennsylvania avenue, and was agieeably surprised to s?j? their very extensive assortment ol? those beau tiful garments We feel contideut that they are now displaying as great a variety of this description of ladies' wrappings a.* any iiousa south of New York, ana at very moderato prices ; and they are in constant receipt of all the novelties in that branch of their trade Their advertisement, enumerating many of their new styles, may be found iu the Star On their first floor tboy exhibit a large stock (f embroideries, ribbons, lace good;, ladies' dress trimmings, Ac , Ac. The ladies will surely call and make their purchases in gomi season. Democratic Msbtiru at Lai-rbl Factory. We learn that the Jackson Democratic Asso ciation are making extensive arrangements to attend the Democratic meeting at Laurel Fac tory on the 30th inst. Hound trip tickets will be issued by the railroad company at a bmall price, and it is expected that a large crowd will go to the meeting. A committee of twenty one was appointed to make all arrangements and we have no doubt that it will be one of the largest meetings ever held in that neighbor hood. We trust that the Democracy will turn out in their strength. Tea Baltimore Fair.?The Clipper of this morning says : " The exhibition at the llall of the Maryland Institute still continues to at tract increasing crowds of visitors, in the evenings tne various rooms, aa well as the great LI ill, being actually packed with people moving in slow streams among ihe varied die play of art and usefulness The fine weather and the great number of strangers in the city have both contributed to swell their numbeia. Indeed, no small part of the attraction are visitors themselves. The Blues Band enlieeu the afternoons as well as th? evenings with their excellent performances, whieh are evi dently, as they ought to be, highly relished and appreciated." Arrestee ? Yesterday, officer Kimball suc ceeded iu arresting a man named Charles Evartts, who was charged with being con cerned in the larceny of a number of sheep, the property of Chester Wallbridge, and valued at about one hundred dollars. He was taken before Juttijo Birch, who held him to security in five hundred dollars for a further hearing. __ Alarm or Finn.? Last night, about eight o'olock, the fir? bells sounded an alarm, and some of the companies were called out, but the alarm proving to have origiuaUd from ft bonfire in tbe western part ot' the city the companies returned to their quarters.

Medical Lecture ?We had not space in our yesterday evening's issue to notice the in uro Juctory lecture delivered by Professor J. 12. Morgan at the medical department of George own College, in this city, on Monday evenfng last. 11 ia audience was composed of the stu lents of the College and a brilliant ussern ?lage of ladies and gentlemen, comprising much ol the talent and elite of the city. Tbe ecture is spoken of as able production, and we regret that we have not a synopsis of it for publication. This Medical College is now one Jry mo3t Prom'3'n6 institutions of thecoun l mtrd States Warrants ?We learn from ?ouie of our most energetic justices of the peace, that warrants issued in petty criminal cases are not as promptly served as heretofore The warrants issued in cases of riots, threats, as saults, Ao , are numerous, but few have been returned. Moit of such warrants returned as yet have been served by the city police, the county constables as far as possible docliuing to act when they can do so without making themselves liable to impeachment, as by act of Congress no fees are allowed in cases of this lescription. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Georgetown, Oct. 22, 1859. An unusual amount of life and activity ia every where visible along our wharves und Water street at this time. We have rarely, if ever, seen such large quantities of merchan dise coming in any previous fall as there is this. Every where, from the Aqueduct to the eastern terminus of the wharvos, all ia life and activity. Coal companies, millers, mer chants of every class, bolh flour, groceries, lumber and wood, the eo jpers, carts anddraya all appear busy Such a thing ai an idle in dividual among either of the above classes, or vehicle of any kind, is hard to find. It is gratilying, too, to see that business bouses of almost every description in thia locality have considerably increased during the last few years, and the cry ia still they come. In a few days more we are to have opened, by two of our enterprising young citizens, another wholesale grocery and commission house on a pretty extensive scale. These are certainly encouraging signs of returning prosperity i et lack we one tbiog, cot only to increase, but to enable us to hold on to what we have. The construction of our railroad and the deep ening of our channel are actually indispenaa l>Ic, and the sooner we, as a community, re solve to made a vigorous and determined effort to secure the benefits which would cer tainly result from these improvements the better it will be for us. Fears are entertained that the schooner B. F. Reeves, Capt. Shaw, has been lost She suilel Irom Salem, Mass , in Angust, with a carg-> of blaster for Messrs. Morgan A Rhine hart When last heard from, she had put into Morristown in a leaky condition, and tears are entertained tbat she was loat in the heavy storm which occurred in September. Quite an interesting protracted meeting ia now going on at the West Georgetown Metho dist churc h under the pastoral charge of tke Rev Mr Gotwalk East night, our venerable fell >w citisen, the Rev. Mr Cooper, preached for them one of his usually solemn and telling discourses discourses; and the Rev B.
