EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE A Littlr Bit or Sport was enjoyed, an evening or two since. in the neighborhood of Stvertn and D streets, of an innocent nature, and which, in the absence of news of a more Interesting character, may as well be now re litff J : In the first nlace. we have a friend, whom we .hall call George; a whole-souled fellow, whose heart it always touched with feelings of urmpathy for the distressed, and particular!/ ii he concerned for the temperance cause, and repeatedly tnake9 sacrifices of ease to comfort the poor ?irunkard. and contributes of his lim ited uieans to that end. Unostentatiously, he Crf.Tms the part of the good Samaritan, hav g the reward of a clean conscience, though not the applause of the world, which he does not seek. Another teetotaller, whom we shall call Jake, being fatigued by the summer's heat, a> well hj business U>il, lay dawn to rest near the place where the temperance society holds its meetings. and was snoozing hwhj comfortably, when Samuel, for the purpose of having a little bit of sport, at th* expense of George's g>?<d nature and zeal in the temperance causc. panting at Jake, said : "Here s an unf<-rtu r nate fellow here, drunk: it will not do to 1-t hiui remain here, for the Auxiliary Guard, inr.ybe, will come along, after awhile, seize hiin and take him to the watch-loathe, where he will be exposed the next morning. and his Mine will get into the Star, to the mortifica tion of himself, as well as that of his relatives. Let us arou-e him. and take him home." This in enough for George; he was. as ever, pre pare"! to render kind offices. So Samuel and i*eorge awakened the sleeper, each sizing an hrm and lifting him to his feet. Jake took fire at this interference with hi.- slumber, and demanded the cause of theirconduct. 44 Come, come." said George. i4 none of your nonsense. lH> ti-u know that you're drunk, and thnt you ate liable to be dragged to the watch-house * Don't be foolish. We'll take you home.'* But I don't want to go. and I consider your offer imj>ertinent." iespocded Jake. ?? Let inu go ' So saying, he broke loose from the tw.> having him in charge, and was in the act of assuming a belligerent attitude, showing a sign ot fight, when Samuel, considering that the joke had been carried far enough, explain ed the whole matter to George, and the par ties. n- w understanding one another, (all hoing temperance men. ) joined in a hearty chorus of laughter. so loud as to alarm some nervously affected ladies and gentlemen who, at the tune, happened U> be posing along in that immediate locality TEsrERDAT was emphatically a -swinger," the-un shining in full power, and affecting with debility sweltering humanity. A native cf and fresh from the torrid zone, we fancy, had one been in the midst of us, would not hare complained of the coolnes% of the weather! Pcdostrianism here, aa in Phila delphia, where the quicksilver mounted to { the figures between yii and degrees of the thermometer, was a perspiring agony, and all manner of work many times ardu< us us u-ual We say nothing about horseflesh, further than this: that, whore they were al lowed to have their cwn way. they merely sauntered along; but we pitied the animais driven by ?4 fast young men." and the Jehus of the omnibus liue. At half-past 3 o'clock in the afternoon, there was a violent blow of wind. which, lilt ing np the loose dirt from the thoroughfares, wreathed it into dense clouds, and with them obscured this fair metropolis Every one abroad at that time was in a situation to swc.l low a peek of the earthy particles before his time ; but a heavy shower fortunately came to his relief, and, in the curs* of a very few minutes, drove down the dust clouds to their appropriate level, and moistened the material to the consistency of mud. Anon, the sun again showed his unwelcome, glowing face, piercing with his beam." more fiercely than before, as if refreshed for the work by the shower which hud just fallen on eub-solary things. In the evening, continuing late in the night heavy peals of thunder, accompanied by fla?h I ing? of broad-sheeted lightning, terrified the nervous ones, while the lovers of the grand and the Solemnly imputing found in the reve lations of nature much to admire. After the demonstrations ot yesterday after noon and the night, we have a renewal of hot weather, a fact mournful to relate, and ex cessively unpleasant to experience. Privart Schools.?The senior division of the male primary school of the First District, under the cire of Mrs. Rodier. was examined a few days since. The exerci-es of the pupils exhibited marked improvement since last year. To meutal arithmetic, especially, in this &ch<?ol as we Lave observed in others, increased atten tion has been given, and the thoroughness of t&e drilling, ard the facility with which diffi cult problems are worked out mentally, would do credit to much older institutions in the best northern schools. This school is subjected to the d Had vantage of being kept in a damp ai.d imperfectly lighted and ventilated apartment, while another division of the school u taught la the same room, which nece?sarily prevents the attainment f that perfection in order and discipline which w? have seat) in a few of the other schools 1 he interest in the teaoher and the school was shown by the attendance of a large number of ,?ther teachers, by many of the parent", and several of the trustees, and the facratary of the board. Coirt of CLAIMS-?Among the more inter esting proceeding" of this tribunal, yesterday afternoon, was the announcement of the fol lowing ruie as having been adopted by the Court: " At ih? time of filing the petition, or al any time afterward* the petitioner may. if he choi.se. file a brief of the legal points and au thorities on which he relief to maintain his oase and the solicitor snail within a reason able time thereafter, file a brief in answer thereto The case shall then be entered ou a separate docket, to be called the law docket, and the cases thereon w.il be taken up and disj>#ed of in their order." HThe Court was not in *"?slon to-day, owing to the sickness of Judge Gilchrist The Exci rsio* YtdTERi'AT.?The frlonda of the ladies ard gentlemen who went with the Oond Will Club on their excursion, yesterday afternoon, felt ? ?mewhat anxious for their safety when the . torui came on. soon after their departure from the city, and passed "ff in the direction in which they had gone. We learu frtiin one of the excursionists that they expe rienced only some few heavy gusts of wind as the boat Beared the spot selected for landing on the river W.th liiis exception the party cxperieare l no inc mvenience, but spent the time very pleas intly and wero much gratified w.th to,! tri|i They returned to the city at ar. early hour of the night. Pic Xic.-?Tne schtdars and teachers at tached to the Methodist Protectant Sabbath fcchool uu .Ninth street, went t:? one of the pleai-ant proves near the city on Wedne day morning last, where they sjwi.t the entire day in pleasant, harmless sport. There were many ladies and gentlemen present, who were highly gratified with the entertainments of the day. of which the performances of the excellent choir attached to the church constituted no email item The company returned iu the evening, wull delighted with the pic nic. Criminal Coirt.?Henrietta Sheiriok. con victed of j>etty larceny, stealing a nuiall sum of money trom Wm. K Fowler; sentenced to five months imprisonment in jail John Browa. found guilty of stealing a coat and pantal'Mjn* from George S.

As ?wue of thoee spurious pieces may find their Way hither, our uitisens should be on their piard ?_ Waica K*tvr>? ?tfiais mis morning A Mad Duo ?In yesterday's Star we called the Attention of the municipal authorities to the fact that, now the hot weather has fairly ?et in. rabid dogaare likely to beoome rangers in our eity ; and stated that one w?e killed, not long age, on H near Twelfth street Since which time we have been informed, from a re liable source, that a storekeeper on Pernsyl vania avenue, ye&tcrday, discovered symptoms of madness in a beautiful little spaniel, kept for a year past as a pet on his premises. The animal was in the front store at the time, and it became necessary to close the doors, and for the persons in the room to leap on the counters for safety. as the '? poor dog Tray" was snap ping at everything within his reach. In a short time he became perfectly rabid, and was shot with a pistol handed in through the window We publish these details, in the hope of indu cing our fellow-citiien9. one and all, to be very careful of proximity at this season to dogs ex hibiting any peculiarities of conduct whatever. We yesterday published an extract from the Columbian Magazine for 1789, prescribing treatment for that fearful madness, and now, with a view to beuefiu humanity, copy the following article, which we find going the rounds of the newspapers: 44 It is said that in every instanco where a person is bitten by a mad dog, small pustules ni.tke their appearance sooner or later on the under side of the tongue, but generally in from six to nine days. These pustules must be opened with a sharp-pointed instrument, as they are too tough to break of themselves; and the matter must be discharged and spit out, or it will be reabsorbed, which reab9orp tl'Hi is said to cause the paroxisms termed hy drophobia. The above is the substance of a communication which appeared in the Now Orleans Tropic some yeais since from the pen of a Southern physician, who says : " In 1832 I was culled to visit a negro woman who had been bitten by a mad dog. and by pursuing the treatment here laid down I was KuccesstgJI iu curing her This course is the s?me thai was recommended by Prof Marochitti, of Moscow, in 1820, and proved effectual, and my first intimation of this mode was from an English magazine published forty years ago, containing a communication from a gentleman recently returned from Tartary, where mad dogs are common and this method of treatment u-ual and successful." lit.o Catching?The officers were out at sr. e:?rly hour this morning attending to that very unpleasant portion of their duty which calls tLem to take up hog3 found running at large in the streets, to the Work-house. Wo learn that s large number were caged this morning by officer Wollard. The owners of the nui wals usually murmur against the officers: but thoy should remember that it is not their fault, but their duty. The Rclbers.?I'p to this morning, not withstanding the activity of our city and county officers, no arrests have been made of person9 connected with the late burglaries and attempt* at burglary in this city. It is evi dent that iho game has|hecn carried on by skilful thieves. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Georgetown, July 20. 1855. lhe annual examination of Mr. Bowen's Academy closed yesterday While it was pro gressing. quite a number of tho patrons and friends of the school were in attendance, all of whom manifested r? lively interest in the exor cises.

At the close of the distribution of premiums, Master John Gillis. on behalf of his school mates. came forward and presented Mr Bowen with a beautiful walking-cane, manufactured of ebony, mounted with a heavy gold head, handsomely chased, with the following ? in scription engraved upon it: ?' Presented to P Bowen by his pupils. July 19, 1855." Thi9 scene was quith affecting. Little Master Gil lis was so much overcome by the recollection that ties of a very affecting character, that he could only give rent to the emotion? that heaved his breast in falling tears. Mr B re ceived the handsome present in a very affec tionate ar-d feeling addr-ss to liis young friends. As he was to leave tho sch<?ol room, he received from your city a package, nicely s aled. Upon opening it, he found it to con tiin a heavy and costly gold pencil, with the following note 44 Will Mr. Bowen accept the enclosed as a token of affection from his young friend and pupil, J. G. Turnbull. July 19. 1S55." Upon the whole, we may safely say that n more interesting school examination never came under our observation. The examination of the Georgetown School (male department) came off yesterday after no-n M.ivor Addison, and several of the members of the Board of Guardian? and of the City Councils were present, together with a lar^e company of the parents of the pupils and friends of the sehool. At the close of the examination, premiums were awarded by Mayor Addison to most of the pupils. The female department was examined on Wednes day afternoon. A tremendous st.-rm of wind, rain, lightning and thunder passed over our city yesterday afternoon, about three o'clock, doing consider* able damage to fruit and ornamental shade trees: tho wind also stripped off nearly the the whole of the roofing of Forrest Hall and a part of the roof of the carpenters' shop of Mr Semmes, adjoining the Phosnix Planing Mill, nnd blew down one of the gables of a house now in course of erection for Mr. John Cameron, on Prospect street. The news from the North yesterday has com pletely unsettled the wheat market, and caused a considerable decline in prices.

Without being disposed or deeming it necessary to go into the particulars of the case, I can say that the astonishing results that have been pro duced by the use of that medicine on a member of ray own family, and under my own observation and superintendence, after the skill of the best physicians had been exhausted and ell the usual remedies had failed, fully justify me in recom mending Its use to all who' may be suffering from that dreadful malady. I do not mean to say that It 1s adapted to all constitutions, or that It will afford the same relief inallca?es; for, of course, 1 can know nothing about that?but of what I have seen of the effects. 1 would not hesitate to use It, in any and everv case of Scrofula, with persons for whoin I felt an Interest, or over whom I could exercise Influence or control.
