EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ?.T5\ tATK El ,CTI?? Fn vrns.-Mr Ferdi of tW W ,n^ab<>r of th? l?wer Board W.rrf kf??n Couuncils for the Sccond Ward, publishes in this morning s Intelli eXPiaD5?7 ?f the *1 b.mself and the rest of the minority of the . r on Monday afternoon last. on tb? re port of the election committee on the F..urth Ward Section c?>?e, from which we make the follow ing extract: W hen the report and resolution of the com mittee on elections was read I requeued the ?? the Board to make a statement; which having been allowed. I said that, at the request of one of the contestants <?f the Fourth ?? *rd. I presented their protect* at the first meeting of the Board ; that I had. for the most part abstained from actively advising them in relation to their esse, since it did not become me to art as an advocate in a rise in which I would have to act as judge; but that I had in formed one of the contestants that it was re quisite to follow up their protests and the list* of rejected voters, voters alleged to be voted illegally, .tc with affidavit* that would e^ tablish the fact; that I had taken no further steps in the matter until I heard it was ? lat ter of newspaper announcement that the com mittee on elections hai met at the Ci'v Hall and the contestants fc.id not appeared, when I waited on Mr Kennedy to inquire if the affi davits were not before the committee, whi in formed me that they had been loaned to M n J? ft0A1Vtabl53h his ri*ht " ?e*t in thc B ?ard of Aldermen, and that he (Mr. Kenr.edy\ supposed they were the common property of the two Boards. Mud therefore had not deemed j.ny iihiTr *?,tion nuccM*ry on his part; tiiat I told him the papers were tho propertv of the Board in which they were filed ; that tho re sult of the conversation was a letter I had that day received from Mr Kennedy, which, with the permission of the Board, I would read. | The fctar of Tuesday last contained this letter ,he P^eedings of the Board ?En ] V> heu I came to that part of it which expressed ? doubt of justice being Jonc the contestants, Mr. Davis objected to the further readii.c of the letter as disrespectful to the Board Some colloquy ensued, in which I said I did not ap prove or endorse that portion of the letter ana some of the members of the majority asked that the letter might be read to it* con clusion, which was eventually allowed to be done. 1 then moved a resolution directing the Secretary to request, in behalf of oU? B. ajd. from the Board of Aldermen, all the j<ffi lavits presented in the last named Board in relation to the late election in the Fourth Ward; which resolution was dccided to be out '? ?*d?r. I then moved a temporary suspen sion of action on the committee's report and resolution with a view that my resolution a<k ing for the loan of the papers"might bo acted on. This motion was rejected. Some further remarks were made, and, Mr Aberfs motion to postpone till Monday next having been re jected, the question recuried on the resolution offered by the Committee on Elections, when I proposed. us an amendment, to insert after the word Resolved" the following 'Theeon testauts having tailod to come forward with the neces.-ar^r affidavits to prove their title to their seats. A modification wa* suggested of Mying "proof" instead of affidavits." which I accented The necessary Verbal al teration not being male, this change caused the tautological reading of the amendment which appears in your paper. I was not in favor of the report of the committee, and am Mire I did not say so. At the close of the de bate or conversation I remarked that I had been prepared to defend the right of tho coc testant* to their ^eats if they had produced evidence Left-re the Board to show that enough votes of naturalized or other citizen to change the result had been offered and refused but that, as they ha I failed to do so, 1 had no a.tcrnative but to vote lor the resolution off-T d rj the Committee on Elections, viz., that Mesm.

UE0RO ETOWN CORK ESPON DENCE. Georgetown, July 2rt. 1855. Notwithstanding the succession of retreat ing showers with which we have been favored. the weather continues oppressively warm Our city, however, continues unusually healthy for the season; and. thus far, but few of our citizens have left for any of tho summer re treats or watering places to what ha* generally gone during the heat of summer heretofore? preferring, we presume, to endure the beat and remain at home, where they know it to nearly always healthy, to going where the mercury does not range s-? high, and run the risk of being injured instead of benefited Business upon our canal continues unu-uall v slack. The farmers, and others whoso bu*t ness is in any manner c mnected with it. ar. too much occupied with the securing and get ting out their wheat, small grain. Ac., and in other farming operations, to turn their atten tion to anything else. Business along our wharves also is rather sla.-k About the sec ond week in August, however, we anticipate f perfect rush upon the canal, a real flood tid? of produce of every kind will then c^mn.en setting into our maikct, which will give an impetii- to business ujn?n the river. We are happy to say that our enternr'-i.-^ ni'-rclia-it and millers are all prepared for it. and will enter into it with bright anticipations of reap ing a golden harvest a- the reward of tbeii labors As a large body of men were going uo the cai al on the packet boat to tne Urea* r ill on Tuesday night, to work on the Washington aqueuuet, when opposite the mill of Mr. W 11.

Tho b<?dy wa* recoverc1 by Mr. Frizzle early yes terday morning. but up to tne time of closing this letter no inque.-t has been held over it It is stiil lying in the water in the canal, mar the residence of Mr. Ftizzle. Our mills have a.i commenced griadii g again The supply of wheat, h iwever, i? too limited to enable cither of them to do a full business, the arrivals being confi.jeu wholly to tae wagon tiale; and as the genoral impression is tha* fl"Ur must soon considerably decline in price, all the wheat received is converted into fl -ur immediately, and disposed of as soon as possi ble. The stock of flour in our market Continue unu-ually light, amounting altogether to only a few hundred barrel-!, consequently tb<- sab are small, and confined wholly t? the ret ui tiaie.
