EVENING STAR. ^^(^I^nfraLIJCrENCE. A F?ATtR* of Natcwl History.?Yes U^Xt'ln,th? ?ieinity of the Centre trittii Tu * u ? ^heeP were Pe?we?bly )??gil .h?rmmg nobody, - a lean, **- dog rushed from the sidewalk into the street, and, with a remarkable degreu of fritkiness. bejjan to bark, in sharp tones, at a matronly-looking ewe, which was lingering in the rear. At fir*t, no notice Was taken of hi? intrusion and his noise; but, as if determined to produce an excitement, he rushed into the flock, continuing to bark, meanwhile, as if his YOval petionuances were designed for the amusement of bis unwilling quadruped audi tors. He then skipped to the rear, and re newed bis attack on the aforesaid matronly looking ewe, which now sent forth an earnest and truly emphatio " bah !" All the sheep, upward of a hundred of thorn, this note having been mounded, turned round, not one alter another, but precisely at the samo time, and di rected at the " lean, lank" dog a volley of 41 bah. bahs all looking at him with intense earnestness, aa much as tj say, " You mis chi?TO?s canine, how dare you intrude into tae midst of nn. disturbing our peace ? You black rascal, what hann have wc done that you thus molest us * You ought to be ashamed of yourtelf 4 Bah ' bah !" and those sounds" Sere continued in full and loud chorus, until it dog, aa if really abashed, took to his legs and flew away as fasta* they could carry him. The sheep, having rid themselves of the black, ?? ugly customer. quietly turned round, aa systematically as a company of soldier*, and resumed the 41 even tenor of their way." A Lars* Party or Persons, enough to compose a good-sited village?for it is said there were from five to eight hundred of them? left this city yesterday morning on the excur sion projected by the National Guard, to Piney Point, they having chartered the swift and oomflQpdious mail steamer, the Mount Vernon, for their purpose. According to ?rhs programme, the party wore p ax rue at the point at an early hour, re maining there several hours, and returning to the city at twelve o'clock at night; bat a: one o'clock yesterday afternoon, they were only thirty miles belo^ Alexandria, or one third of the distance only to the Point. Tba poat was, as may be supposed, uncomfortably crowded, and therefore made but slow head way, contrary to her leputation for swiftness. About 150 persons left the boat at Alexandria and the White House, and returned to Wash ington by another mode of conveyance. All Safe!?Tha excursion of the National Guards, which left this city yesterday morn ing, at7i o'clock,returned at 10 minutes before 12 o'clock m. to-day. The steamer Teached Piney Point at 81 o'clock, where the company remained until 20 minutes after 12 o'olockthis morning, and arriving at the time above-men JJoned?no accident of any kind occurring. Tn Theatre?Artists and workmen are busy in fitting up the National Theatre for the fall and winter season?, our play-going i'ellow citiiens will be glad to learn. Lamb, the ac complished scene-painter, has the decorations in cnarge. The lighting of the whole interior is being re-arranged, with a great increase of its volume The drop is to be renewed and the proceniumi much altered, and forty entire scenes (new) are to be added. This last addition will make it better furnished with scenery than any other theatre in the country. The owner appears determined to make it worthy of the Federal Metroi-o'is of the Union. We forgot to mention above that it is to have an entire new and hand some front, in imitation ol' browa ft .re Haifa dogen managers are sail to have inti mated 4 wieh to take the house for the ap proaching session of Congress, though, as yet, we understand, the proprietor has not closed with either of them. Y Exccesion to the White House.?The Montgomery Guards, yesterday, had their an nual excursion to this favorite place, and, not withstanding the unfavorable appearance of the weather, the fast steamer Guorgu Wash ington was filled with ladies ami gentleman from Georgetown and Washington, Fischer's 1 and was in attendance, and discussed their sweetest music. On the arrival of the com pany at the White House they found a large company present, who hud started early in tne morning on the stcuroer Mount Vernon on un excursion to Piney Point, but who bad changed their minds and landed there. Everything passed off harmoniously, and the party en joyed themselves very happily in dancing and other amusements. A number of member* of other military companies were in attendance. Altogether this was one of the most pleasant excursions of the season. The company, on their return, arrived at Washington about ten %. m., all highly pleased and gratified, and without anything nucurring to mar their plea sure. Goods Identified.?We stated on Wednes day that a boy, between seven and eight years of age, offered to ?ell to a son of Captain Lul lay, about the same site a? himself, a piece of calico, for the small sum of rix and a i^uarter cents, and that another soa, four years iho se nior of his brother, wicnes.dog the proceed seised the goods, which he carried to his fatner, the latter leaving them at the Star office for reclamation. And yesterday we re corded another similar instance; a bundle > f calico being offered for sale to a lady for twenty-five cents ! The cheapness of the arti cle induced her to suspect that it was stolen, and she therefore placed it in the hands of of ieer Wollard, who left it to be claimed by the owner at the office of Justice Smith. We learned this morning that these pieces of calico have been identified; the one belonging to White A Sons, and the other to James L. White, merchant*. They were evidently stolen frem those gentlemen. Tie Boat Elizabeth was missed yesterday from the place where she is usually kept. In formation was given to the owner. Mr. J Rey nolds, who instantly started ii eearch of her. She was found near Georgetown last night; her sai!s torn, and the boat otherwise injured The sailing party who bad possession of her are known, and the manner of obtaining pos session has also been statwd to tbe owner. Al though this way of obtaining boats L not law fa!, still be does not wish to prosecSt* when the punishment would fall heavily on connexion* ?f tbe parties concerned. Riot?On Monday night one of those dis graceful riots, so common among unlawful jfttherings where liquor ha* the control, came off in the northern part of Tenth street, better known as Negro Hill. One of the pers -ns con cerned was stabbed three times during the fight. Officers Fanning and Stewart have ar retted seven of tbe combatants, who have been bald to bail for ^ further hearing. Ail those arrested are colored persons, and the wounded man we bear is not dangerously injured. Arristeo o> Suspicion?James Gibbs. a Stranger in Washington, was arrested ' last pight by Messrs Bell and Dyer, of tbe aux iliary guard, on suspicion of beiDg the person who entered Mr T. H Havener's house the night previous. Tbe uireuinstauces being in sufficient to justify the commitment for court, be was discharged this morning with a severe lecture, after promising immediate immigra tion froaa this burg NriSANCEi.?We are frequently receiving communications, compUii.in^ of the filthy con dition of the streets. A correspondent want? to know what has become of the garbage cart*, to take away accumulated slop*, which, for want of means of rumoval, are thrown into the streets ; thus increasing tbe cause* of disea>e. Acting withoit a Precept ?Cas.^y Butler was takes before Justice Clark yesterday for Jtearchiftg the dwelling cf Eliza Clark, and Whipping one of her children, Lossy being unin.e to produce proof of authority tor her conduct, was held to security for pcaee. The OrricEas of the central wards of the city were euforeing the hog law this morning. are informed that they were successful in arresting a number of fine animals, which w?re seat to tbe workbowse to be di*po*ed of *s the law directs. A riout occurred last night in the Fifth Ward between a man well known in that vi ?t?ity and a female. Warrants ware issued "?r e parties, but we have not hsard the re sult. Capb Mat Exccasion?They who desire to enjoy a pleasant and a cheap trip to Cape May, (four dollars the round trip.) will not fiilt?> remember that the exeurtnn will take place to-morrow afternoon, the passenger* starring from tho Washington railroad station in the half-past four o'clock train of cars. They will be con re jed to that popular wateringpU^e from Newoaa'.le, Del., in the swift and double-en C'ne steamer General McDonall. Tho nuai !r of tickets is positively limited to fifty, so far as relates to tnc passengers from this city. We donbt not the participants will hare a good time, and be enabled to return to Washington at six o'clock on Monday morning.

'?Baldwin ? Nenning, Architect?." Nobody will derive from these wordsthat we object to tho site of the market (hill site) upon which it is to be built, but very much to th* making of all those parts which the plans ami mutual understanding do designate as hori zontal ones. The plans were drawn on a level line, on the special order of the proper author ities; and how to adapt them to the prese .t line is an ea?v matter, not to be discussed in these lines.

Strofula. Without beingdisposed or deeming it necessary to go into the particulars of the case, I can sav that the astonishing results that have been pro duced by the use of that medicine on a member of my own family, and under my own observation and superintendence, after the skill of the bfst physicians had been exhausted and ail thi* 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 is adapted to all constitutions, or that it will afford the same relief in all cases; for, of course, I can know nothing about that?but of what I have seen cf the effects. I would not hesitate to use it, in any and every case of Scrofula, with persons for whom I felt an interest, or over whom I could exercise induenre or control. Respectfully, yours, jno. M. Botts.
