EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The Regatta, which is announced for Wed nesday. the 8th instant, promises to be a bril liant "affair. The following boats constitute the contestants for the prize. namely: Know Ifolhing. of the Navy Ynrd ; Will Watch, Gen eral Jackson, Know Nothing of Alexandria, Martha. Skipper, and Lady Gay Spanker In order to render the arrangements com plete. the boats entered for the match will *:.?rt precisely at 9 o'clock, and the steamer Mount Vernon, which has been engaged for the accommodation of those who desire to wit' ness the sport, will follow shortly thereafter, in proper time to witness the entire chase; round trip tickets to and from Alexandria, fifty cents. We learn that a large number of bets have been made, including one of five hundred dol lars. between the Know Nothing, built at the Washington Navy Yard, and the W ill Watch, ?hc latter the winning boat of last year. There is a good deal of cxcitement relative to the contemplated regatta, as it will be the largest known to our citizens, and on the Po tomac river. We anticipate the attendance of thousands of persons to witness tho innocent and stirring sport. Cahp Meeting.?The attendance at the e imp ground of the Methodist Protestants, on Sunday. was large, person* from the three neighboring cities resorting thither, either to participate in the religious observances, or from motives of curiosity. We are sorry to have to add that no little rowdyism was manifested on the road from Ball's Cross Roads up to the Camp ground. Little tents were pitched on the road side for the sale of fire-water, and were liberally pat ruuized by those who went to the meeting lor a spree The consequence was, that there were sundry fights, from which blacked eyes, bloody noses, and barked shins were the re mits. With one exception all was quiet and orderly on the Camp ground, and the visitors wore remarkably attentive to the interesting and imposing services. We hear that meas ures were to-day taken to cause the indictment, in Alexandria. ?>f every person who can be identified in cuttiug up shindies, yesterday, on the road or in the vicinity of the religious as semblage. Serves 'em right! L*rgk Fcsrral ?A friend, who wis in Alexandria, Virginia, yesterday afternoon, informed us that he there witnessed some of the proceeding* attending the death of a col ored person They who followed tho remains to the grave composed a procession extending the length of three squ ires of streets, and it is estimated that at least a thousand colored persons were in the line (including a benevo lent society of females) though at the time rain was heuvily falling. ?>ur informant says that they were all remarkably well dressed, and that never bef>re had he witnessed a more orderly funeral, in which either whites or blacks took a part. This was in a slave comnunity. The spectacle was well calcu lated to give the lie to the Munchausen mis representations of mawkish *4 philanthropists," UKallcd, at the North, concerning the colored population of the slaveholdir.g States. Non-Residents ?Now that tho officers of the police department appenr to be executing laws which have been so seldom enforced that few of our citizens kn< w of their existence, we think we shill serve them by calling their at tention tosectiou 11 of the act approved May 31, 1*>27. entitled ?? an act concerning free negroes, mulattoes. and slavos." Pers >ns who wish to hire servants, should be cautious that they do n >t make theuirelves liable to the fine imp sod in this section of thelsiw. Free colored per sons coming to thi> city have to comply with the law betore they can be legally employed 1 y at.y citizen. Ma;iy < fiend against this law ignorantlv. Waylaid and Beaten.?Yesterday four gentlemen in a hack reluming from the camp meeting were waylaid ou the road, their horses stopped, acd an att ick in wle upon them in the carriage. One of the gentlemen. Mi 8ewll, wa* badly beaten ; the party attacked another. Mr Ellsworth, who was struck hi the lueuth with the handle of a whip. TLe at tacking party appeared to have a particular desire to injure him. one of them crying. " kill him' kill him !" Mr. Ellsworth made his es cape by displaying his agility. The name.-of the attacking party are known, we are ii:e formed, and proper measures will be resorted to by the waylai l to bring them all before the court in the county where the offence was committed. The Ktskels open their series of concerts acd other entertainments at Odd Fellows' Hail, this evening A talented, respectable, and funny set of fellows they are; delighting au ditors with their melouy, and making that popilar place of amusement ring with shouts ff excessive laughter. There is no more pop ular troupe anywhere than the Kunkels, a reputation which they deserve as much ou ac count of their private, gentlemanly bearing, as for their varied talent. The public, conse quently. appreciate th'in and are always de lighted to have them in their midst, especially jluring dull times. The Yellow Fevek?We learn that during the past week about fifty persons arrived in this city from Portsm outh. Ooeport, and Nor folk. to avoid the yellow lover now prevalent at those places It is said that a few individ uals, who theie contracted the disease, have died iu Now York Philadelphia, and Balti more, respectively. All persons arriving at these cities and Richmond are examiued by the proper quarantine or health officers, and their physical condition severally certified. Thi* is with a view tu guard the public against the possibility of contagion. The Boose Clib will give their first grand s iree and pic-nic at Spring Gardens, formerly occupied by A Favier, situated ou M street, between .Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets, to-morrow, commencing at four o'clock in the afternoon Tickets, admitting a gentleman and ladies, fifty cents. The committee are determined to admit no improper persons to the grounds in order that the entertainment may be of unalloyed pleasure to the friends ami patron- of the club. We d??ubt not that all the participants will have a g?*>d time. The Cosceet of tho Marine Band, on tho President's grounds, on Saturday afternoon, was largely attended; but before the last pa triotic tune, usual on such occasions, was play ed. the company separated; the tlouls gath* r ing in blackness, portending rain, and warn ing the mu.-ic-loviug promenades that, if tiiey tarried much longer, they would be subject to a drenching, like that which those at the Cap itol grounds, on Wednesday afternoon, so dis agreeably experienced. Cape May Exitrsw*.?In another portion of t??-day's Star we give the particulars of the accident to the Steamer General McDonald, on Saturday night. It was a relief to the friends ot the party of fifty who left ih scity on Satur day afternoon to join iu the excursion, to learn that they were not on board <it the time of the s*d occurrence, they being at Newcastle, awa.ting the arrival of the ste.nnboat. Almost a Fire?On Saturday night the gxrds disp.ayeiin the window of the millinery establishment on Pennsylvania avenue, south fide, between F.?ur and-a-half and Sixth sts., accidentally took fire, and caused some little excitement for a time in that neighborhood. The flames were extinguished before any con siderable loss was suffered by the proprietress. Heavy Rains.?On Saturday evening be tween eight and nine o clock, we were visited with raius, the heaviest, perhaps, o4" the sea Son . and on Sunday afternoon, there was a re sumption of the liberal outpouring of the clouds Notwithstanding, the temper ittue hasnU been very sensibly cooled Fire.?The alarm of fire ab<>ut 12 o'clock on Saturday night, was caused by the discov ery of lire in a building near the Circle, in the First Ward, belonging to Mrs Mickum. The flames were fortunately extinguished in time to prevent mu 'b damage being done.

As bad as this may appear, there are other features still more revolting. The great demand for vegetables Jo supply the rapilly increasing population has sorely troubled some of our gardeners, as they have to pay from thirty-seven to fiftv ceuCs per load for stable manure. On experi ment however, it has been ascertained that night soil will produce more and larger veget ables than other manure, and, inconsequence there is a great demand for the article; s<> much so that some streets are almost unpayable from the stench exhaling from the deposit* therein or near by. This t-bould be remedied by se eding a remote pla-e of depo-it, where fami lies will not be daily reminded of the great discovery in horticulture, or they will become so disgusted with the continual stench th .t their stomachs will revo!t at the very idea. 1? it not possible to go back to the good old plan a:.d use of stable manure to cnrich the ground for vegetables to bo consumed by man. and to use the other article-on the meadows in order grow hay for h >rse.s cows, Ac. ?

Extraordinary Case ?John Blattner and Louisa Koch were brought down to the poli.-e otfice last evening, from their residence at tne corner of Ninth street and Lafayette avenue, having been arrested for the ill-treatimnt and attempt to starve a little son of Blattner. a?ed eight or nine years, calling himself Eranx Blattner. It appears that the mother of the boy died a -hort time since, leaving by will all her prop erty, consisting of a small share of real estate to little Franc. Shortly after the death, the woman, Louisa Koch, was brought up to the house and took up her residence with Blatt ner. It was then determined by the man and woman to get Franz out of the way, and se cure the real estate for themselves. The way to accomplish tnij villainous purj?ose was to starve hitn to death. Accordingly, he was fastened up in a room with his hands tied behind his back, where, at the time of his discovery, he had been con fined for tbe space of two days, without having h id a morsel to eat or drink. He would proba bly have suffered a horriblo death had it not have been for the watchfulness of the persons living in the neighborhood, who, suspecting the case, informed the police, ard had the house entered and searched. Little Franz wa overjoyed at his release. Blattner and his par-imour were lodged in the calaboose, and will be dealt with as they deserve to-day. It i* difficult to imagine a nr>re unnatural or inhuman case.?$t. Louis JJrmucrat, August 1. Heirs of John Smith Wanted.-The cool erf thing we have encountered this hot seasm is a notice in the Philadelphia Bulletin, adver tising for t he heirs ot John Smith. It is stated that one John Smith, who was born, says a contemporary, in 1697, and died in 1806, (whioh would make the said John 109 years of a*e at the time of his death,) loft a snug little fortune o: . 2, ?0,000, for whioh heirs are now wanted. It is sai I mat a meeting of the Smiths, inter ested in this fortune, i? arranged to come off in August, at a point near Philadelphia. It is believed that, except the Persian army under Xerxes, tl.e worldhas not seen *o large an assem bly as ti:o call upon the Smiths will bring to gether. The question of supplying such a mul titude, is already beginning to excite serious apprehensions. Our Philadelphia contempo rary does well, however, in warning tbe Smiths not to bs too sanguine of making their fortunes at the proposed convention. It is estimated, that it all the Smiths attend, and the two mil lions and a half aie divided equally among them., each individual Smith will receive about half a dollar.?Riehmnd Dispatrh.
