EVENING STAR. "local intelligence. Tbi Wells Childreh.?Thia little couple announce their benefit for to-night, at Odd Fellows' Hall, and prelent a truly attractive programme. In their circular, copied of which Uve been scattered broadcast, they remind the public that, " proud &* they are of the ap .jause they have received, and grateful as ihey *re for it, they have still other want* and H^res which they feel sure the good and gen erous people of Washington will not withhold.' * Willie is eight, and hi* sinter Ed th six year* of age, yet, through their comparatively tiny pi 1*8, they discourse the sweetest tones of vo , cal melody, delighting all listeners. who have been not a few, during their reeent perform ances in this metropolis. Edith will sing to night " Comin' thro the Rye" and the "Bird Song,'' a la Jenny Lind; and Willie " The Dying Girl," and with his sister the popular duet " When a little farm we keep." 'm The Kunkel troupe will, in addition to their other comicalities, perform the new and side splitting farce of the " Blaek Statue, or King of Clubs." But we would appeal to thn public on behalf ' of the Wells children, who say in their circu lar " they are hut little folks, and have no wealth but their reputation as good children, and the gifts which nature has kindly bestowed upon them. They have been engaged by the Kunkel troupe by way of variety to the concert per formances, and with a view to the gratifica tion ot the public. To be fully appreciated these " little folks" must be seen and heard. They decidedly possess much musical talent, and render their songs with much archness tod cunning powers of mimicry. SorRCES or Dajigbr.?If we mistake not, there is a law prohibiting, under penalty, the tkrowiug of water-melon and cantaleup rinds, and sue 11 like refuse of fruit, in the footways, as. by stepping on the slippery fragments, fBisons are liable to be thrown down, and per aps crippled for life In fact, wo are Ac quainted with nn elderly lady, who w&s thus ? ripped, and broke her leg. some years ago, frtu the effect of which accident she is still a sufferer; and we frequently hear of persons suddenly falling to the earth from such causes. If the law has no terrors for those who thus dispose of the useless parts of the fruit which they consume, we appeal to them in the name of humanity to throw them into the street, provided they select public places for the in dulgence of their appetites. This may appear to be a trifling subject to some folks, but it axumes a grave aspect when considered in connection with barked ankles, broken legs, and injured spine. PoarsMoiTH axd Uosport Mechanics.?Wc learn that not more than one-fourth, or four hundfed, of the entire number of mechanics attached to the Gosport navy yard, are now employed at th->se public works; the others having left that vicinity on account of the prev alence of the yellow fever. And about the x fan.e proportion of mechanics engaged else where. remain. They who have fled to health ful parts of the country, we are gratified to learn, have, for the most part, sucoeeded in obtaining employment at the various branches of their necessary and honorabie craft. These in Washington have nearly all been provided lor. in this respect; an oveut which is calcu t lated to cheer their hearts, under the depress ing circumstances which induced them to quit their permanent homes, for a season, whieh, we trust, will be brief, as we aro sincereiy hopeful that the ravages of the pestilence will soon cease to exist. A Mistake.?The captain of a vessel lying st Alexandria, while paying his men yester day made a mistake by giving each one a month's wages more than he was entitled to. The men were soon missed, and the captain discovering his error immediately followed them to this city, where he obtained the assis tance of the police officers and the auxiliary guard. After searching all the localities where they were likely to rendezvous, they were found, two at the steamboat wharf, preparing to depart in the steamer Columbia, and three at the railroad station, waiting to leave in the ears this morning. The captain's money was recovered, and the men (all colored) were dis tni.ved. The uneasiness of the captain is more easily imagined than described. All the offi cer*. it should be stated to their praise, refused any compensation whatever for their services; the man evidently being poor. Praise Gardens.?A happy comnany as sembled last evening at the Spring Gardens, (late Favier's harden.) on the corner of Twen tieth and M streets, for a turn at dancing un der the influence of the balmy atmosphere which graced the night. Weber's brars band disc urred the music for the occasion, attract ^ iog thither a large crowd of the votaries of the divine art. who lingered on the surrounding hills and plateaus, tor hours, in crowds. Real ly. Lightbecker has filled up his establish ment?saloons, walks in the groves, dancing rooms, and bowers?with great taste, affording all that pleasure seekers, of a moonlight night <*an desire. The Spring Gardens are destined to grow rapidly in favor with all who love in' noeent recreation, especially when the moor complacently aids music in soothing the strifes ambition, and cares of humanity. Pkrso*? T rave lino to or from Capitol Hill dark nigBw* should provide themselve! either with a guide or a lantern, in order tr guard against an obstruction to pedestrianisiu in the vicinity of the souniwe<t corner of the Capitol extension. The impeiiuueki to loco fuocinn consists of a huge pile of dirt; but. ?<, far as we are capable of judging, it possesses no architectural t'urm nor beauty. It may, per haps. be moulded into shape to serve the pur j>ese if an observatory, for aught we know to 'he contrary, or, perhaps, the dirt is ihero deposited us a speoiman uf the original earthy formation. But whatever may be the object the pile and its exhibition, persons who prefer their legs, for moving purposes, to horseflesh, are in danger of embracing their mother dirt in a manner which, to say the least, would be more disagreeable than pleasant! A Ri'Lt OF THE CorRT ?We have heir* of ? rule of the court which is not generally known, but which is followed by the captain of the aux iliary guard in all eases of consequence. A lawyer of this eity, who is well able to risk his property for the security of others, applied to the captain this morning for the release of a woman who is in jail for keeping a disorderly house. He asked the captain tor a release, and offered himself as security'; but the cap lain politely told him that he would take ?? no liml of the law'' fur that purpose. The legal gentleman acknowledged the propriety of the rule, and left the office as good uaturedly as he came. The captain says that his reason for adopting this rule of the court will be un derstood by all who are connected with the ixi.-sness of that tribunal. Where's the Law 7?This question has been asked several times within a few days, when the power of the Commissioners of the Asylum was a subject of discussion. Many of our citizens doubt the right of the Commis lioners to release persons committed to the work house for violations of the Corporation Taws. We do not intend to enter into the dis cussion, but direct those who are interested to section second of " An act for the government of th?* Washington Asylum." approved April 3, 1M7. The powers and duties of the Com missioners are there laid down. Mkla.vcholt Case.?Recently, a woman was sent to the work house for disorderly be havior and profanity. The prosecuting wit GtU this morning applied to the committing magistrate for her reiea?e, telling a piteous story of the death of the woman's sister, whieh occurred last night. A coffin was pro cured at the expense of the corporation, ami due arrangements made for the burial. The familv are miserable indeed, and, though de based, are supported by the charity of their neighbor* Johx Wai.ke*. one of Washington city's old ? nd popular butchers who went to California #cme time agj, has returned and re-estab lished himself in his old businoss, at his old stand in the market, and the old meat store at the corner of Seventh and I> streets, where ha ' jrill ba 4'on hand to meet and serve his <nen Is and the public with the choicest of articles in the meat lint PrwpoLOflY. ? A correspondent complains that the pump At the corner of Thirteenth and D streets ha3 been cut of repair far the last three weeks, which has compelled the neigh bors of that vicinity to go two or three square? to procurc the water necc^sary for family use. This announcement should be sufficient to the Commissioner of the Second Ward to hare the pump put in proper working order. We would respectfully repeat what we have heretofore said on this subject, namely: that complaints ought to be made to the mayor in all ca?e* of dereliction of duty on the part of his subordinate officers. Health or Washington.?The number of I interment* in this city for the month of July is 165. Of the deaths, 61 were of white males; 65 of females; oolored males, 13; females, 16; I sex not reported, 10.

It was not until after we had dispatched our letter of yesterday for the Star office, that we learned definitely that Mr. Mitchell had posi tively declined the nomination tendered him by the Know Nothings for the vacant seat in the Board of Aldermen. From all we can learn, we think it likely there has been no little trouble in the camp among the disciples of "Sam" in their efforts to concentrate their forces upon a candidate for the above men tioned post. A meeting was to have been held last night for the purpose of making ano ther effort to secure a candidate. What the result was, we have not yet learned. We think it likely that no nomination was made ; had thero beon. it would have been known outsido before this. Let not the friends of Mr. Beall, however, be deceived and fail to go to the polls and vote by any supposed divi sions among, or failure upon the part of their opponents to nominate a candidate. One thing is certain, they (the Know Nothings) will not support Mr. ?., and sifter all it may turn out that there is some seheme about the matter in tended to divert the anti-Know Nothings from polling their full strength. Verbum sap. The revival at the west Georgetown Metho dist Church, under the pastoral charge of Mr. Speaks, is still progressing. Meetings of a very solemn and interesting character are held nightly, which are attended by large and at tentive congregations. A considerable num ber ha? already been added lo the member ship. A new Sunday racc-course has recently been established on some of the streets in th< eastern part of our oity. On Sunday before last, some eight or ten hackJ from Washing ton, on their return from a funeral, (we are sorry to admit it,) ran a ra;e down Green street. Nearly the whole length of it, the horse? were run at full speed by their cruel drivers, each of which applied the whip to the dumb animals with an unsparing bana. The scene for a while w.ts truly frightful. Not only were the lives and limbs of those in the vehicles at the time endangered, but those of the multitude of children who are generally about the crossings of the streets in this por tion of the city on nn afternoon On last Sab bath, the s-ame disgraceful sport was repeated on the same street by parties on horseback. We have been requested to say that aov amount o( money, however small, left with ouf fellow citizen" W. II. Edes. Esq.. will be forwarded with'-ut delay to relieve the tuffer ers at Portsmouth and Norfolk. One benevo lent gentleman commenced the good work this morning, and wc hope that hundred? of other* will go and do likewise, so that a handsome amount may speedily bo raised for the relief of our distressed and suffering fellow-country men. The flour market remains quiet and but little doing; small sales at ^Va^N 25 Wheat is beginning t,o cone in more plenty, and mil lers appear less anxious to purchase to any ex tent at the present prices.

Spectator Singular Suicide <>v a Bov.?Much excite ment was caused on Friday evening at Eighth and Vine streets, by the discovery that a boy only thirteen years of age named Albert Mi gran, living with his uncle, A. Roidot, drug gist. southwest corner of the streets just men tioned, had committed suicide. About six o'clock tho body of the boy was found seated in the outhouse, in the rear of the premises, with one o? his suspenders about his neck. Life wps extinct. It was supposed that the youth had tied the suspender about his ncck. and pulled upou the ends until he was stran gled. He had been missing about ten minutes when the b<-dy was discovered, and hopes were entertained that animation could be restored. But efforts to that effect were of no avail. The deceased 7a" in th~ habit of committing acts of foolish daring, ana iiu friends beliivc thn* the act was intended as a mere bravado, al though it proved fatal. Coroner Dclavan held an inquest upon the body, and a verdict of " suiciae by strangling" was rendered.?Phil. TJnr*k American, Monday. The Pickpockets at<* u^wr,; % rich harvest at Saratoga just now. Beside large number* of gold watches and jewelry missing, one cT the boarders at one of the first class hotels had his wallet takun from his pocket, while bath ing. containing $8,000. to ruuoyer which he offers, in one of the New York city paper*, >).M0 reward.

Tho police are 011 their trail, however, and may be expected to make some interesting exposures and discoveries in the course of a few days. Accidents at the Navy Yard?Three ac cidents occurred in the Navy Yard on Satur day. Charles Breckridge, a spar maker, had his foot crushed; a man named Coilius had his head and spine injured by the falling of a der rick, and a carpenter, whose name could not be ascertained, while at work on the steamer Niagara fell from her bow, making a descent of about fifty feet. He was seriously injured, and it is thought ho cannot survive ? JV. Y. Stut. Another Hecriitisg Cahb at Boston ? Joseph VVagner whs arraignei befog; the Uni ted States Commissioner at Boston, on Satur day, on a charge of eulisting soldiors for the British army. Ho was discharged on tho ground that the crime, ii'oomuiitted, came un der the jurisdiction of New York. He was immediately re-arrested and will be *ent to New York. The complaint was made by two men, who went as tar as Boston, but refused to go to Halifax. Oil for Locomotives.?The Albany Knick erbocker says that during the month of May forty-nine locomotives on the Central Railroad used up over a thousand gallons of oil. This is equal to ten hhds. This oil costs about S2 per gallons?which shows that to keep a loco motive properly greased for cue single month uses up about ^40 worth of oil. ? | y The late Dr. Chapman, of Philadelphia, was walking in the streets, and a hater's cart, driven furiously, was about to run him down.

Beers A Co : Gents?Consider ations <#daty to the iiUlcted alone prompt m? to send you thin voluntary testimonial to the great value of llCarter,s Spanish Mixturefor that almost incurable disease, Scrofula. Without being disposed or deeming It neoewary 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 >hyslclans had been exhausted and all 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 Is adapted to all constitutions, or that It will afford the same relief In all cases; for, of course, 1 can know nothing about that?but of what I have seen of the effects, I would not hesitate to use it, in any and every case of Scrofula, with persons for whom 1 felt an interest, or over whom I could exercise influence or control.
