EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. T>? Editoe or tu Truth it itill indus triously engaged in bis patriotic effort! to ben efit this country and "the rest of mankind " He indeed wields" the pen of a ready writer " and is brimfnl of benevolence. We would not disturb the harm6ny of his sentences by a sin gle unauthorised grammatical correction, but give the following proclamation, as we re ceived i^and in all its freshness, to the world. Id the first place, ha thus graphically refers to ? **JO*TI I* Til LAST PRESIDENTIAL CAM PAIGN, making us the organ of his lucubrations : To The Editor of the Star : Sib : I haveing labored to elect Genl Frank lin Pierce President, and fortold that he would obtain from M to 38 States, I felt proud when I read the following in the New York Herald of Monday, November 15, 1852: " But, in reference to the cabinet, and in ? reference to the home policy, the appointment policy, and the vast and paramount foreign responsibilities of the paw admininistration, we hare got a word or two say. Let it suffice our readers just now that all the antecedents of General Pierce are in his favor?that he is a man of talents, experience, ability, saga city, and common sense, in a high degree; that, from all sources of information, we may rely upon him in full faith and confidence ; that he contemplates the tremendous task be fore him as a sacred mission assigned him to perform, and with that careful deliberation of a man resolved to perform it to the best of his abilities. ' TIB EDITOR THANKS GO I) ! For it Corrisponded with the Opinion of the Hon. E. Burke, who had said That he had known Genl Pierce for years, and that he was a high toned Gentleman, a man of integrity and honor, and I thanked God for it. As I do when any Rood has happened Or is about to be Confered Upon Our beloved Country. THS EDITOR CALLS SERIOUS ATTENTION TO WHAT HE HAS TO SAT, AXD LAUDS THE PRESIDENT. FtUow (citizen*. I now a*k your serious attention t*> what I here say. What has Pres ident Franklin Pierce done that displeases you ? Have you any grievances that he has not redressed, which was in his provence to do so. ia accordence with his sworn oath, to up hold the Constitution and laws of the United Stages of America ? Or do any von believe that he has violated his oath of office ? If so, when, and wh*re? Or under what Circum stances has he proved false to that Solom Oath. That each President of the United States is bound to take before he enters upon the duties of the President. HIS CONTINUED VINDICATION OF THE PRESI DENT?A KIND WORD POE THE CABINET. Then if he has not, what has he done to offend you? Is it in choosing such a man u James Guthrie Secretary of the Treasury, That had lived and acted in his own State so as to obtain the commendation of his Political oponanta. when they saw he was improperly assailed7 Or that of James C. Dobbin for Sec of the Navy, who has done more to elevate our Navy than any other since the time cf Washington? Or Jeff Davis as Sec of war who will yet pr^re himself as he did at the Battle of Beun^rista, CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNICATION OP GEN. TATLOB TO THE EDITOR OP THE TRUTH. Of whom Genl Taylor said |y Mr Rob ertson it was hi* timely aid that gained the day, had Col. Davis not come up as be did all would have been lost." So future ages will say if it was not for the firmness of Hon Jefl Davis our army would have regained behind the age. i SOMETHING ABOUT THE GOLDEN GOOSE?15 WHAT COESISTS THE HAPPINESS OP MAN. The People of the United States, would have been the Golden Goose, for the Wicked Na tions to pluck. But, being forewarned, Wt ft fort armed? hence we will be prepared for any emergency that may arise, at home Or abroad. As a Seeker after The Truth, be heveing that in The Truth is the happiness ol man, aud that in the happiness of man ia the Chief glory of God, coarosTus the lovers op the union. I desire to Say to you, my friends and fel low Citisons Throughout Our Holy Uniou and the world, That you have nothing to feai in the way of a district ion to Our National 01 Countrie's rights. WEO ALONE WERE COGNISANT OP THE WRITING OP THIS PRONUECIAMENTO ! And I here Say, and write The Truth wher I tell you, I write this article unbeknown t< any ene but my God, who has said, you shal ?ot speak evil of the ruler of the People. A PATRIOTIC APPEAL ! ?

Drovers* Rest ?It win he seen, by refer ence to aa advertisement in our columns that the sales-dsy at Drovers' Rest has been changed from Wednesday to Friday; the new arrangement to commence en the twenty fourth instant?or, two weeks from yester day. This is by eon?ent of the drovers and butchers attending the markets in our vicinity, as a change in the day of the Laitimore cattle market has recently been made, and with a ?lew to a regular and set time for the transac toons. n?t be generally known that most, if c't a. I t tbe beef consumed in this city, is purchased at DroveiC Rent, on the hoof; there lv>re it mo*t b# regarded u aa important mart. ?^^sent?The ^aia of cart which started from this eity yesterday at it o'clock, p. m , Sit which *fcem a When Vkto! nZTmS*9 ***** ? *>Ullock r.nfrT ? bottom, which cait one , if. . #U1 from the track, and smashed *ad Wlt*r PlP? that place. The train, however, paa*?f on about three ^ left the irJQred on the I con#n??t,oa made in time With the western train "Bow* Around."?There ?u a denie crowd at Odd Fellows' Hill, lost night, on the occasion of Mr. Floyd's benefit. The perform* anees, m usual, were laughably entertaining; and in thu oonneotion wa include the render ing, by Mr. AdaaM, of the new eong, first pro duced by the popular actress, Mrs. Florence, of "Bobbin around." He appeared in the oostume of a female?dark frock, white apron, and a eoal-scuttle shaped bonnet of extraord inary dimensions, which he constantly kept 44 bobbin around." We perceived no peculiar merits in the song Itself, though the manner and style of the singinf elicited lone-oontinucd applause. The hilarity was epidemio, and there was a oontinuaT " bobbin around" of heads caused by the laughter explosions. We doubt not there will be a similar exhibition of 44 bobbin around" this evening, as another at tractive programme is presented. The "Black Statue" afforded very much merriment, and a quaint old codger charac terised it as a 41 side-splitting machine;" and to say the least, he was about half-right But those who have any doubts on the subject can be convinced for themselves, as it is to be re peated to-night. " Yellow Fever at Washington"?Don't bb Alarmed !?Some of our exohange papers have oopied the following paragraph, wl lich appeared in the Washington Union of Tuesday morning : " It was reported yesterday that one or two cases of yellow fever had occurred in the im mediate vicinity of our Navy Yard. It is quite likely that has been, or, what is more likely, will be the case. The direct communication between Portsmouth and Washington is fre quent, and, as no quarantine regulations ex ist here, there is nothing to prevent the intro duction of this justly-dreaded scourge into our city." Lest the above may occasion unnecessary alarm, we deem it proper to state that " the report" of the existence of yellow fever in the immediate vicinity of the Navy Yard, is con tradicted by the surgeon of tho y*rd, as we have been oredibly informed. There is no direct communication between Washington and Portsmouth, although persons have, du ring the past week, been arriving here by the way of Baltimore, where they undergo a strict examination by the health uffiocrs. The Sunset, yesterday, was truly a rich scene, inspiring all admirers of the works of nature who beheld it with inexpressible de light. One as lovely has not been seen in this latitude during the present season. At fiTst, the western hoiison wore a delicate pink as pect, then gradually assumed a deeper shade, until that portion of the heavens were illu minated with, as it were, a curve of living fire; while above floated light clouds, of ruddy hue, forming a pleasant contrast with the blue and pearly vapor, with which they slowly mingled. The effect on the landscape was indeed beau tiful?the reflection of the retiring sun impart ing to objects within the range ot its influence a roseate hue. We leave to the poet the de light of a minute description and the effort to express the pleasureable emotions of the heart which the sccue inspired. The Market Laws.?Wefunderetand that the authorities have determined on the " strict enforcement of the market laws ;" at least an officer of standing said so. It is a fact that many cases can be made under those laws? cases that might have been attended to long since. We believe those empowered to act in thesu ca$es can do their duty without tear; and we heard a hope expressed by several in the market, that prejudices would be laid aside and the law executed without favor or respect to persons. The German Yagers will make their 44 grand civic and military excursion" tojthe White Houso on Monday next. They have heretofore rendered their pleasuro trips de jightful to all who participated in them, and it is therefore fair to presume that they will not be "found wanting" (like him of antiquity who was " weighed in the balances") on this occasion. As Weber's cotillon band has been engaged, there will of course be not a little 44 bobbin around" in the dance, of which our > Qerman friends are so fond. The Depot Disturbances.?Justice Batfs, yesterday, disposed of a number of cases of disorderly conduct at the Railroad Depot Uaskmen had been charged with leaving their horses to obtain passengers in the office ouild ing when the cars arrived. Daniel McGinnls, John Butler, James Lynch and Robert Mc Pherson were ordered to pay the fine and costs. They did nut object to the execution ot the laws. ?? Dangbrocs Sport.?There was shown to us ' by a gentleman, a ball which had been fired at a man's house, and which passed through ' one side; breaking a tea-pot on the table at which the family were sitting, and lodging in the wall on the opposite side. Thi* is rather [ close for eomfort; and we would advise persons , who wish to practise target firing, to go out i ride the eity limits, or select a spot where life ?ad property will not be endangered by suoh amateur sport ?? [COMMUNICATED. r Rev. Dr. Tbasdale.?We learn that this eloquent and popular divine, pastor of the Thirteenth street Baptist Church, has returned from his visit to the South, and will be in bis own pulpit to-morrow morning and evening, ) when his many friends will have the pleasure i of hearing his discourses. i This new enterprise is rapidly approaching t completion, and bids fair to be one among our i most beautiful church edifices.

At an election held at the poor and work house, by the trustees, on Tuesday last, Mr. Duffy, the present superintendent of the es tablishment, was re-elected for the year end ing August 1, 1860, and JJr. ff. Magruder was elected attending physician. The Georgetown Advooate of this morning contains the proclamation of Mayor Addisou, ordering the election to fill the vacancy in the Board of Aldermen to be held on next Thurs day, the 16th instant. Thursday will, doubt less, suit mu:h better than Friday, the 17th, the day first named; insomuch as the camp meeting in Montgomery will commence on the 17th, and doubtless many voters who are right on the 44 goofce question" will leave with the company on Thursday evening. The public generally would thank some per son who is skilled in Egyptian caricatures or Chinese jugglery, to inform them what means the strips of paper which were strewn about all the principal streets of our city under cover of the darkness of last night, with the words "Now a days" printed upon them. Probably it if the election returns from Louis ville. The fine barque William Ohase. Capt. Dory, is daily expected from St. Thomas with a cargo of sugars for the Messrs. Dodge. Our market was literally flooded this morn ing with fine fruits, vegetables, Ao., at prices as reasonable for the most of them as could be desired. The offering of beef eattle at Drover's Rest this week was small, not equal to the demand; about 100 head (all that was offered) were *4d at S3.62ia$4.62* per 100 lbs. grass, equal to $7 25a$9.25 nett, being an inorease of 25 cents per 100 over last week's pik.

This is a con siderable falling off from last year. The railroads terminating here are pressing on their business as vigorously as ever. Mr. McWilliams, a large contractor on the Alexan dria, London and Hampshire railroad, has re cently landed a large number of spades, picks, barrows, Ac., for hi* work. The "Madison, locomotive, just received on the Orange aud Alexandria road, is undergoing repairs. The schooner Black Monster has laded a new loco motive for the Central road. Quarantine was yesterday established at Jones' Point?W. 5. Gregory, M. D , health officer; Capt. Joseph C. Moore, assistant. The owners of the steamer George Page have entered into an arrangement With the Orange and Alexandria Railroad Company, by which the steamer is to run in connexion with the railroad, and at intermediate hours. Captain James Guy is, we learn, to take charge under the new arrangement, which will commonce as soon as the contractor, Mr. H. R. Brad shaw. has finished the slip between Cameron and Queen streets, whioh the Company have engaged. Next Thursday the ladies engaged in the Friendship Fire Company Fair held their pre liminary meeting at Sarepta Hall. A writer in the Gazette, of this morning, says that he has conclusive evidence that the body recently found opposite Alexandria is neither that of Dr. Grant nor Dr. Thompson, both of whom left Princo Georges safely. Ami. A Sword ron the King'of the Sandwich Lblands.?We have been phown a beautiful sword, just completed by Messrs. Baldwin & Co., manafacturersof jewelry of this city, for Ivamehameha, King of the Sandwich Islands. It is certainly a very beautiful specimen of mechanical skill, executed at the order of the Prime Minister, who is aow in th?? country, after the drawings and specifications of the King himself, and is intended to be used only on State occasions. It is made in the form of a metallic composition, riohly gilt by electro magnctism, and decorated through the1 whole , length with a vine which grows luxuriously on the Sandwich islands; near the top is en graved the coat of arms of the king, bearing it motto in the native language?"Ua Mac Ka kaokaainai ka pono. '"The life of the land is dedicated forever to righteousness." The hilt is gracefully curved, and heavily studded with precious stones including rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and carbuncles, and bears also the initial of the king. It is alto gether a rich and beautiful piece of bijouterie. Newark Daily Advertiser. tyThe Sultan's favorite dwarf, a man about forty years old. and three feet high, a lew years ago took a notion to marry, and ap plied to tho Sultan for a wife. The Sulfctn gave him permission to go into his harem, and t ike the one whom he could kins. The dwarf, like all other men. was ambitious to have n i >ug wife.

A Man Who cocld Help Himself.?A wri ter in the Christian Witness says of the late Bishop Griawold that one man in a thousand ever gave so little trouble to his friends.
