Several Fierce Barks asd a Growl imme diately collected, this morning, a largo crowd near the corner of Eleventh street and Penn. Avenue. A party of boys, white and black, with their fishing apparatus; a negro man with a wuodon leg, a dozen or more of men in their ^ shirtsleeves, and several women, together with not a few citizens, were huddled together. Clerks issued from their places of business, and everybody appeared to be intensely alarmed Local items being scarce, we. too. with ft view of picking up one of these desirable articles *^ired ;o the kcbc, hut arrived just jw the crowd, as well as two dogs, which had pro duced the commotion, were separating It appeared that the canines had merely stopped on the w;iy to amuse themselves by a rencontrt ? and as *uch affair* are always welcome to a part of the inhabitant* of any city, no wonder need be expressed that the exhibition was fruitful of interest. The juvenile judges of dog-flesh nnd canine courage learnedly pronounced their opinion on the conflict, as usual on such occasions Behold what a Mate a little fire kindleth ! or, id other word**, how slight a ccusc a large crowd. Mirage ?A correspondent requests us to i whether any of our numerous readers saw the mirage on the afternoon of Monday, the 2d of July. It was seen by several persons from an elevated position in the First Ward, about half an hour before sunset, all the trees and hills to the north, northwest, and west of the City and Qeorgetown had disappeared, and in their accustomed place wound tho Potomac with the sail and steamboats, the Arsenal point, tho long bridge; in short the river was reversed, all the southern and oastern part of the District was reflected in the northern and eastern. The afternoon was clear, but tho sky was covered with fleeting clouds obscur ing the sun. yet leaving a brightness in the air. Cbcrch night at half-past eleven o'clock. Grace Church, the neat little wooden building, in which the Protestant Episcopal Society in the Seventh Ward met f >r worship, was discovered to be burning. The alarm was immediately given, ard the firemen sneedilr repaired to the spot. The lames w??re extinguished, and the building } iraved from entire destruction, but was much damaged. We are requested by an officer of some distinction to say that the firemen f-cn ? trallii deserve credit for what they performed where there was such a scarcity of water. This fire was doubtless the act of some prison deserving incendiary. DA.fOERovs MA.fiAc ? Martha Twine, a free Oolored woman, was sent to the county jail, , yesterday, by Justice Clark as a dangerous maniac. She believes that she is a slave, and I wants to get her free papers. It only requires a negative to excite her. and she becomes dan gerous. Sho has attempted to injure her children, and fear that she might destroy them induced her husband and friends to try to get her received into the infirmary or asylum. Not being successful, they applied to Justice Clark, w!io sent her to jail. Officer Fanning had to tlan his course nicely in order to carry her to jail without trouble. , Peoprrtv Sale.?Yesterday afternoon.

Havinc heard a rumor on the street that mercury had been extracted from the body 0f a sick man in the form of quicksilver, and being anxious to witness such an experiment, we accompanied I>.x;tore Youmans and Seltzer, the operators yesterday for the purpose of judging fjr ourse i ? truth of the statement. We found Mr Jacob Hymrod, the patient, KUnS? the18outl^, rrt of the oit^ been afflicted with the chronic rheumatism for the last ten years, lying upon tho bed in an en feebled state. who told us that ho had horeto J.l . eVery .k,ind of medical treatment without success. Ho had swallowed during his sickness vast quantities of mercury in the shape of calomel and blue pills, from the effects of u u Ja<1 near,7 lost the u?e of his limbs, ile showed us a globule of quicksilver lareer than a good si*ed pea, which he said hail been gathered from the bottom of tho electric bath in which he had been placed. | He had been seated upon a metallic stool in an insulated tine bath, well coated with paint, an* his feet immersed in acidulated water The galvanic battery was then applied, and the positive polo held in the hands of tho pa | tient, the negative pole being iu the bath. It is claimed that the power of the electricity upon the system is such as to eradicate every metallic substance; and by means of the wire it is deposited in the bottom of the tub It requires some twenty-four hours for the globules to collect themselves, so as to be perceptible to the naked eye, when they may be seen bv thousands clinging to the sides and bottom o"f the bath. We were informed by tho doctors that three drachms of quicksilver had already been taken from tho patient; who, together with his friends and relatives present, confirmed tho statement. Although this pumping quicksilver out of tho body of a man by the means of a galvanic battery may seem strange, and smell a little of humbug, we trust our scientific and medical men will net pass the experiment without u thorough investigation. ? Columbus (Ohio) Journal. Death Caused by a Cobpse ? A sad acci dent happened timo ago in a farm house near Liberty, Missouri. The mistress of the house became ill one morniug. having. acct>rd ing to jyuiptoms, received an attack of chole ra. Her husband had left the house at day brvak, and her only daughter, who was then with her, sent for a physician. After a few hours the latter arrived, but was already at the door received by the sobbing girl with the cry "She is dead! ' He was conducted into the room where the corpse lay, examined it, and directed the daughter not to allow the in terment until twenty-four hours had elapsed. He hnd searcely done when the corp-e nodded significantly. The daughter saw this motion, and was so horrified that she fell down dead on the spot. It is a well known fact that per sons who die of cholera retain the warmth of the blo4?d tor a long time, and frequently alarm by.-tanders by contraction of the muscles. When the p?H>r farmer came home in tho i ve iling he found nothing but corpses. The do> tor, however, had to suffer most, he had to leave the State. Hazabpous AoYEHTrBE.?A gentleman of scientific attainment*, recently pas.?rd through Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, on his way by the route of Governor Stevens' railroad survey to Eort Union, on the Upper Missouri river, a distance of seven hundred miles, all of which he designed to traverse solitary and alone, taking no supplies with him, and relying solely ujx?n his gun and his skill as a hunter f?r the means of subsistence on his journey, lie travels on foot, drawing in a small hand cart his meagre outfits, consisting of a gun, ammunition, blank books, pen, ink, paper, and sciontific instruments. In this manner he proposes to acquaint himself thoroughly with the topography of tho country, its cli m*te? geological characteristics, etc , making a complete examination as he proceeds, and transferring the results of his observations to hi* blank books.

("1 GAUTIER has the honor of announcing it J? has become a "fixed fact" that the prepara tion which he submitted to his friends ana pa trons a short time since, under the denomination of Sparkling Sugar, is the best substitute for the instantaneous preparation of Soda Water ever of fered to the public. The reports of the Agents for its sale in ditferent sections of the country, all say it has been received with universal favor, and con cur in the opinion that the Soda Water prepared from the Sparkling Sugar is not only a most Inno cent, pleasant and agreeable summer beverage, equal i n all respects to that from the most approved fountain, but in many Instances positively oenefl cial and healthful. It is warmly commended by the most eminent medical faculty of the North, West and South, and in fact wherever they have had an opportunity of testing its qualities. C. GAUTIER will not resort to the usual mode of putting his preparation. It requires nosuch ad ventitious aid. It carrieB with it its own recom mendation, and let it once have a trial, and he ventures to say no family will lie without it at this season of the year In addition to its intrinsic qualities, the SPARKLING SUGAR is cheap and within the means of all to purchase. A glass of Soda Water prepared from it, is cheaper than if purchased at the fountain. To travelers mid suinnler excursionists theSpark ling Sugar will be found a most admirable "torn pagnon de voyage," it being put up in small glass jars, which can be carried aoout the person with out Inconvenience, and whether In the parlor, chamber, steamboat, or railroad car, if cool water can be had, a delicious glass of Soda Water can be instantaneously prepared. The Siiarkling Sugar is flavored with Lemon, Ginger, Vanilla, Strawberry, Sarsaparilla, and the usual variety of Sirups at the l*ist Soda Fountains. C.
