Re: by night or by the evening
We only use that construction for "by day" and "by night". We don't apply it to other, shorter times of day (morning, afternoon, evening, dusk, dawn, twilight, sunrise, sunset etc).

I have to write a report on Tuesday, but I have to write it by the evening because I'm going out for dinner with my sister.
Here, "by the evening" means "before evening arrives".
