A telegraphic dispatch from Louisville, Ky., July 13, say<: ? The B"aid of Trustees of the Public School)* of this city have dismissed several teachers of foreign birth with Catholic proclivities." and it b added, "their action has occasioned much feeling, and incite with general condemnation en the part of the members of the old Whig party. Thi> reminds us of the fact that when tho Kn< w N"thing!* of Philadelphia succeeded to p?'wer. they pursued a coursc similar to the above, but the public indignation demanded the restoration *?f the teachtrs who were dis jni.-.-cd merely because they worshipped God accordingU> th? ir own inclinations; a heinous fin. in the opinion of tho new regulators of religion aud American politico. In Baltimore time after, a movement wa.-* made to cffcot like ?>l ject?'. bnt the board of scr.*w>l trustees happened to have, at that time, the discretion to atav their hands from the ioAu-lioa of such injustice. Th?- hoarl of school trustees of Washington have n'>t. as y?.t, been guilty of proscription of tcochcrs for the reasons which have influenced rut bleat bigotf of oth^r cities. New Wmiat. of a fine quality, begins to come to the Alexandria market. It is, how ever, rather too damp for grinding. A faithful dog. belonging to the coach man of a banker, iu^ Rome, recently picked up a package in the ytrcct, which proved to con tain four diamond studs, presented by the Queen to one of the officers of her house, on a visit to that city, for the recovery of which he had offered QN) reward. At Att*active Novelty.?Wc understand that a gentleman connected with tho Cunard line of steamer^, at the earnest solicitations of *cveral of hi.* friends in Boston, has brought out a new and elegant "Hansom Cab," with a suitable harness, and that it will shortly make its appearance for hire in our streets. It attracted an admiring crowd wherever iU stopped Every one who has enjoyed either in Xtiverpool, London or Paris, the eomfort of these truly sensible and convenient vehicles, will be pleased to anticipate the revolution in public conveyances, particularly for short dis tances, and mpid driving, which this event -will be almost sure to effect among us. These cabs have nearly superseded all other livery vehicles in the cities of England and France, and we feci assured from personal experience of their superiority, that their introduction will become general here also, a? soon as the public become acquainted with their many ad ?antog^s,- over existing modea of conveyance. WASHINGTON 1TEWS AlfD GOSSIP. Coal for Locomotives.?The experience of I the past year has demonstrated the fact, that I Cumberland coal must very speedily take, cn- I tirclv. the place of wood for burning in 1>>co- I motives, wherever it is possible to transport it, I except under an enormous expense- It is well I known to our readers, generally, that the Bal- I timore and^Ohio Railroad Company, long since, I discarded wood for this coal, laying far more I convenient for their use than for that of any other railroad corporation in the country. But. I within the last year, it has been tried in New England, New York, and elsewhere, with a*- I tonishing and perfectly satisfactory results. 1 On the Boston and Lowell Railroad, the saving I in the cost of the fuel has been found to be I about fifty per cent., and the managers of the I Norwich and Worcester Railroad report that a locomotive using it will accomplish in the I year as much work as when burning wood. I and do it, too, at a cost of one thousand and I twenty dollars per annum less for fuel. The locomotives of the Hudson RiverRailroad con sumed in 1854 nearly 5200,000 worth of wood. I or some 40.000 cords, and its managers now estimate that had they used Cumberland coal I instead, the same amount of work would have been done at three-fifths the expenditure for pine wood. The cost of the wood used in the joconiotives on the Hudson River and New York Central Railroads is from S3 to S6 00 per cord. It is, therefore, reduced to a certainty that nearly all the locomotives built hereafter for u.-e on the Atlantic coast railroads, will be I constructed with their boilers and furnacesar- I ranged to use coal as fuel. This extra and large demand which will I spring up for Cumberland coal will, of course, I increase the value of all the lands in the re- I gion of country in which the mines lie. This I extra demand will, we take it for granted, in- I spirit those charged with the construction of the (Virginia.) Alexandria. Loudon and Uamp- I shire railroad, which is at present designed to I be constructed no further than the great Hampshire ecal fields, which lie for mining as well as for transportation, when this railroad shall be fini-hed. much better than the Cum berland coal fields, of which they form an ex tension; the coal in them being, in all respect.", identical in its qualities and characteristics I with that from tfle mines. j The cost of this railroad, when finished, will not reach more than a fifth of the cost of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad to the Cum berland mines, and it will be much straightcr. I and have much easier grades, all of which J facts will, of course, enable the company to I transport the coal profitably to Alexandria at much lower freights than arc necessarily I charged by the Baltimore A Ohio Railroad I Company, for transportation between Cumber- I land and the commercial capitol of Maryland. I This Hampshire road. too. is being constructed I through the very finest portion of Northern I Virginia, where lands are destined to rise rap- I idly in value, the want of means of commani- I c:ition with the great markets of the land I having, until this time, kept their value quite I low comparatively. We note the progress of I this great enterprise and the so-rapidly in- I creasing demand for the description of coal I which it is designed to open to the use of the I world, with equal interest. ! Unpaid Letters?It is surprising that, in spite of the well published requirement of I pre-payinent on all letters mailed, the col lee tion of letters detained for non-payment con- I tinues to average from 5 to 10 a day at our Post Office. i I We arc informed by Mr. A. Schucking (an j attorney and agent of this city) that, iaconse- I quence of the loss of a valuable letter to him self in the New York post office, by reason of non-payment of postage, the idea was suggested to him. to make it a business to advise parties to I whom letters detained are addressed, by eireu- I larot the fact, offering to pay and forward! them upon their enclosing tcu cents in postage | stamps or money. He ha? earned the thank? of many recipients I in this city. But the matter having been mis- I apprehended in some quarters for a bogus af fair, we are requested to make this statement, I in order to remedy such conception. With reference to the so stupid practice of failing to pre-pay letters with the law on the subject standing as it does, the New York Courier and Enquirer says: "The Post Okkick.?Complaints are fre-I queutly inadc of the failure of letters to reach I their destination; but it will be found that generally the failure or delay arises from ti e errors or want of caution on the part of the writers. We frequently receive letters from I places having names similar to towns in other I States, and without the particular State beiiig I named in which the writer lives. This is even I a frequent fault among bankers, who should I of all classes, be explicit in their address. We I observe uumng the advertised letters at Buf- I falo, re tat tit/I Jor wuut ojptejxiyment of post- I tree, letters for one of the banks in this city. I This is no doubt a frequent neglect, and tool much caution cannot be observed in having I the writer's card or address distinctly printed I on his envelopes, so that in case the postage is I accidentally not prepaid, the Postmaster may I know whom to uotify of the omission.'* I We arc informed at the Post Office Depart j mcnt. that it is the duty of deputy postmasters to forward as addressed all post-paid letters to I which a three cent stamp, or greater fraction of the jKjptage due upon them, may be affixed, even though they may be addressed to Cali- I fornia ; but to treat letters on which a cent stamp may be affixed, as if they were wholly unpaid. ; ? The Threatened Indian War.?The accounts received in Washington from the frontier with reference to the purposes, the whereabouts and the means of the Sioux and other bands of In dians, that would be openly hostile if they dared to be. arc somewhat contradictory. One mail bring* a report rendering it almost certain that General Harney's little army will have bloody work on their hands, while in two or three day- newsofan opposite character reach es u*. The only certain conclusion that we can draw from those advices is, that the au thorization of the four new regiments has been most fortunate to all on the frontier entitled to the protection of the Government of the Uni ted States; all accounts agreeing in represent ing that the news of the preparations which have thus been made to give due protection to the frontier, has had a salutary influence on the minds ot most of the tribes disposed to be i hostile at this time. The Conntry.?The region surrounding this city never looked brighter, thriftier, and more lovely than at this particular season. Sea sonable rains have more than repaired the in jury done to the labor of the husbandman by the drought which afflicted us up to nearly the beginning of June. They came in time to make the wheat crop much more remunerative than usual, and tn biing all the summer vegetables to j* i fre tion. as well as to make the c.>rn (In dian) leiaajkably liuviaul up tv title Line. All nature around us wears its richest and most genial smiles. It does us good to look not only on the profusion of source^ of com fort and plenty, which nature and the hand <?f man are just now producing from bountiful mother earth prr/mnd Washington ; but also on tho air of contentment, if not unalloyed hap piness, which are worn on the countenances of all one meets in a ride, borrowing their aspect as it were, from the smiling fields, cool dells, and waving woods by which they are sur rounded. We, as a people, have, indeed, much to be thankful for, though those who do not avail themselves of the opportunity for seeing na turo and the busy world in their most fasci nating conditions?that is ,in the highly c ulti vated environs of a city like ours?are certainly losing among the very best of the blessings of Providence by which they are just now sur rounded. ?

Samuel Ivinsey, of the 1st Regiment of U. S. artillery, who came to Washington from Fort Mcllcnry on the 3d instant with the light battery of his regimsnt, died this morning at the residence of Mr s. James Hoban, (the sisterof Capt. Win. II. French. U. S. A., who commands at Fort Mcllcnry,) in this city. Ho was prostrated by the typhoid fever, at the quarters of the company, on Pennsylvania avenue, and was promptly removed, to be under the kind care of the family of Mrs. II. His remains leave the city this afternoon, accompanied by big parents, for their residence in Bristol, R. I. Tho Commissioner of Pensions ?Shis gen tleman. Hon. Loren P. Waldo, returned to this city last night, and has, we hear, definitely determined to accept the position of a judge of the Supreme Court of Connecticut, to which he wa.s recently elected by the State Legislature. He expects to retire from efficc h^: about the first of next month. The regrets of a large circle of friends will accompany him. He has made more character as an Executive officer than was ever achieved by any other gentlc ii.m, in the same length of time, in tho em ployment of the Government, in this city. Generel A. C. Dodge.?Mr- Perry has writ ten to friends in this city, saying that the Spanish ministry are exceedingly pleased with (?en. Dodge, whoso frankness, courtcsy, and intelligence thus favorably impress them. Wc notice the receipt of the letter, to which we r fer above, with peculiar pleasure, because it bears out all we have said of General D. in refutation of the absurd and malicious efforts of a portion of the press to create the impres sion that he is a inero illiterate and vaunting western bore. A Mistake.?It is not true, as represented, that the Russian Government have refused permission to Major Mordccai and Capt. Mc Clelland (officers of the U. S. Army, despatched by this Government to the scat of war for pro fessional observation) to pass to Scbaatopol. They have been kindly received and have bad e ery possible facility afforded to them by the Russian authorities. The Government^ here ha* full information of the facts. Cel. John H. Whoelor, U. S.
