EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. * RxLtir to the Sufferers bt Yellow Fkvkr?We learn that the *Assistant Post masters General and Clerks of that Depart ment bare mbscribed $65; the Sixth Auditor's bureau $130; that of the First Comptroller of the Treasury, S62; persons employed io and about the Capitol, Capitol grounds, and Capi tol extension, S100, and other sums, of $100 and upward have been promptly forwarded to the authorities of the infected cities, for dis bursement. We were informed, on application to Messrs. Chubb Brothers, that the total amount which they hare received is $386 All the sums sub scribed are- not paid in. In the Nary Depart ment building $120 50 were subscribed. Chubb Brothers have remitted $375. The banking-house of Messrs. Chubb Bro thers will continue to receive and forward contributions for the laudable purpose of re lieving the distressed. The offices of the 44 Union" and the " Intel ligencer," and the banking-house of Sweeney A Kitten house have alto nees designated as depositories of such gift". All the collections taken up in St. Patrick's Church, ou F street, on Sunday next, the 19th instant, at the several hours of service?6. 7 and 10 a. m , and 4 p. m.?are to be applied to the relief of the sufferers. A Duel Prevented.?Last night inforrna* tion was given to the polioe of this city that, from circumstances of recent occurrence, there wis reason to behove that arrangements were making or were made for ? duel between the flaii. Chas. J Faulkner End Col. Boteler, the opposing candidates in the Harper's Ferry district, at the late Congressional election in Virginia. Toe gentleman who lodged the in formation is related to one of the parties and die political friend of the other. His state ment was clear and free from the least par ticle of prejudice for or against either gentle man. Warrants were immediately issued, and Captain Birch, of' the Auxiliary Guard, J. Davis, Chief of Police, with officers Allen, Handy and Boss went in search of the par ties. Col. Boteler was found at the Kirkwocd House in company with his friends, Messrs. S trot her and Donnell; Mr. Faulkner at Wil lard's Hotel, where he baa been Stopping. They were conducted to the guard house, where an examination took place before Jus tice Morsell; during which the principals were separated ; the one being in the retiring rt?>m. while the other was in the trial room. Both appeared to be very much disappointed at the intt rt'erence The testimony does not show that a challenge was tendered or accepted ; but the suspicious circumstances were con sidered sufficient to require security of the Krties that no such affair should take place. e no demanded by the Justice was five thousand dollars each. Col. Alexander Pro vost became the security of Mr. Faulkner, and Mr. George Plant for Col. Boteler. The bond requires that they shall not fight a duel in this District, nor leave it for that purpose. The E.vcampxext?It is hoped that others of the volunteer corps of this city will join the gallant and ambitious National Guard in their encampment on the lands of Col. Hickey. about two miles north of Washington, on the 12th of September. Surely our citizen sol diery have spirit and good taste enough to make this encampment a grand affair, going off with very decided eclat. If four or five of the crack volunteer companies of the city would join hands in this matter, (and it could be done with the greatest possible ease and comfort and pleasure to all,) they would ac complish themselves more in the art of the soldier, in two days steady drilling as a bat talion. than in two years' night di#lmg. such as almoet alone forms their drill when not camping on a similar excursion. Such a camp as we suggest would be visited by thousands of our fellow-citiiens, ir.cluding nearly all the youth and beauty of the federal metropo lis. Surely such inducements as we describe above should prove sufficient to draw out a very handsome array of the military of Washington on this interesting occasion. Characteristic Geserositt?We stated, yesterday, that in additiou to the contribu? tion* of Mr George Kunkel, and others of his troupe, for the relief of the Virginia sufferers by the yellow fever, a benefit would, as wo were informed, be given at the Holliday street theatre for the same worthy object We now learn, from the Baltimore papers, that during the progress of the public meeting in that city vesterday, a letter was received from Mr. John T. Ford, manager of that theatre, tendering. od behalf of the lessees of the establishment (Messrs. Ruukel. Ford, and Floyd) the entire receipt" of the performance next Monday night, for which occasion Mr. and Mrs. Charles How ard have kindly volunteered their services. It is needless to say anything in praise of this noblo offer?so characteristic of the worthy proprietors. 44No*a or Torm Bills. Sir."?The other day the well known, quiet, and courteous dis tributor of handbills for public exhibitions, was ordered out of a store, with the rude re mark of 44 None of your bills, sir." 44 It's for the concert to-night," rejoined the distributor. ?? I don't care if it is; none of your bills, sir." The distributor accordingly retired ; and af terward said to a friend that he had been en gaged in this business for twenty years, and that never before had one of his bills been re fused. Merchants have always accepted them, either Cor the purpose of reading the pro gramme, or making use of them for wrapping pap?r In other words they have, with this solitary exception, always been 44 honored at sipkt." For Camp.?It is said that at least one hund red persons have left, or are about leaving this city, for the Me'hodist camp meeting which commences in Montgomery county. Maryland, to-night. Although the distance from Wash ington is seventeen miles, we bear that all the available horse-flesh has been engaged to transport visitors thither on Sunday next.

[communicated. Shall we have a Town Clock??To the citizens of Washington : Mr. Editor?Per mit an old resident of Washington, and a sub scriber to your paper, to oc upy a little space in your columns that be may say something to the citizens in reference to a public benefit that may accrue to them by the least exertion aud sacrifice on their part. Wo speak of a Town Clock. The subject has been often brought to the notice of our citizens, but the enterprise, for the time being, abandoned from the want of a suitable place to deposit the works. This difficulty is. we hope to show, or soon will be, removed. Wh;le on Thirteenth street a few days ago, we noticed the progress being made in the erection and completion of the Baptist Church. The immense timbers on which workmen were engaged in plining, mortising, and making every preparation ne cessary to a heavy frame work, led us to in quire for what purpose it was intended, and were informed, that it is the intention of the enterprising building committee to place upon their large aud commodious bouse a steeple oae hundred and sixty feet high from the base of the church, in which will be placed a large bell weighing 2.163 jtounds. A room for a clock will be prepared, and the proper circles left in the sleeple for four dial plates. These dials will correspond iu di imet- r to the circles (7i feet.) and will be eleva.ed sixty feet above the le/elof the street, and over one hundred and fifty feet above the Avenue. They will be plainly seen upon the Avenue, at all the Departments, and. indeed, iu every elevated position in the city. The striking of the clock could bo heard dis tinctly at the Capitol, Island. Northern Liber ties, and Georgetown, thus being beneficial to every portion of the city. It is, we under hand the desire of the building committee to place a cloik in this steeple, and we know ol' no bett- r position. We trust that what efforts may b_- put forth in reference to the acoom- , p lsnineut of this desirable object will meet with the hearty and substantial approval of tiie citizens. This is the only city of ai.y note i;i the Ui i' n that is without a Town Clwk. and the question is?shall we have one 7 You have now an opportunity to decide. Let your decision be?yes ! and to that decision add. *henca<led upon, a liberal subscription. It is a public benefit?not a sectional interest; but of this, it is unnecessary to say anything. f)r we would insult your common sense were we to attempt to convince y#u of this.

J Watch Returns.?Tb< mas Phillips, drur.k, di rni^-ed ; Edward Murphy, whipping hia wife, dismissed. Accident from Somnambulism.?A few nights since a lady residing in Washington street met with a serious accident while in a state of somnambulism. She had no knowl edge that she ever arose from her bed while a-ieep, nor did any of the persons in the house know that she was a somnambulist, though tney had frequently heard voices in the night time for which tney could not account, but all of which has now been explained. On the night in question she took her child about a year and a h.ilf old out of bed. and descended the stairs and went out to the safe for some thing to eat. The table had already been set for breakfast the next morning, and she put the food on it, after which she treated herself and child to a hearty ineil. Without remo ving any of the dishes she leturned to her bed rouin. laid the child down and again started down stairs. As she descended she came into contact with a swinging window sash which awoke her, and without knowing where she was stepped forward and fell headlong to the foot of the stairs. One of her arms was bro ken by the fall, and she received a severe oontusion on the frontal bone, which however fortunately did not prove of a serious charac ter. The noise created by the fall awoke some of the members of the family, who im mediately got up, supposing that the hou^e had been entered by robbers, when the un fortunate lady was fouud on the floor and in a a state of insensibility. She soon recovered but could not tell how she came in that condi tion. Medical aid was called and the wounds attended to, the fracture proving only the small bone of the fore arm. She subsequent ly remembered and recited what she called a dream, in which she thought she had tikeu the child and gone to dinner. On several oc casions previously the food put away at night was found to be much less, and the domestic of the family was suspected of the theft, though the lady herself always took charge of the keys It was fortunate that she did not fall the first time she wont down or the child would in all probability have been killed.?

Soon those who had eaten the fish be gan 10 die, and in a few days fifteen perspns had expired, and many more were fatally hick, and numbers dying every day.
