EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE IIeroks ii Peace are not (infrequently f >und to be cowards in War, and men, apparent ly selfish in time* of general health^ are dis e^vercd to be self-sacrificing in the hour of dreadful trial, when perti'enoe prevails, and the hearts of the bravest rink with apprehen sion. The trnth of this assertion has often been demonstrated during the prevalence of the yellow fever at Portsmouth, as we learn from private sources. A gentleman who had the reputation of being haughty, not (according to those who foim their estimate of individual character in the abeeoee of proper data) caring for the welfare cfhis fellow citiiens, moved by the distress ? pound him, at once devoted himself to the ofiet* of humanity, and, by every means in k>? power, administered to the rick and the djir/;. and even procured the deceased as de cent burial as circumstances would admit. They who farmed so poor an opinion of b's characteristic? had led ! Ue is now receiving the " love and thanks of man and woman.' Adversity develope3 real worth. Colonel Watts, the President of the City Councils of Portsmouth, has taken a large seheol-bouse. well locat< i for ventilation, and to that place has removed the children who have been deprived of their parents by the yellow fever, and appointed such superintend ents as will care for them during this time of rbeir distiess. A* OrriciAL Oeatoe.?Yesterday officer James Little, well known to our citisens as one ?f the comical geniuses of Washington, Vrhen in the act of executing a search warrant in the Seventh Ward, was opposed by a lady, who objected to his entering a certain room. Jimmy begged, but to no purpose; his fair opponent w.v in no humor to permit his entry. Jimmy reasoned, but she was inflexible. At last he took another mode. Assuming an attitude that would serve as a model for the study of some of oar law student*, he delivered the follow ing eloquent speech: "Maaam Were the combined powers ol Erubus led on by Pluto himself between me and that door, I would make my way through fifty times their stop, and enter that room. The law. Madam, commands only where it <>an compel therefore be pleased to stand out of my way." Jimmy says '-the lady fuc cubed" Accident.?We learn from the National In telligencer of this morning that Mr. Jaoob Hull, of Prince George's county, Md., (wh<i ha? been a sojourner in this city for several months past.) wv? thrown from his buggy ;< few miles out on the Seventh street road, on Sunday afternoon, and sustained very severe, though, we believe, not dangerous injuries His right leg was broken below the knee, and he has some internal hurt which may possibly prova to be the fracture of one or more of hi* ^ ribs. Mr Hall weighs nearly three hundred pounds. and there is of course greater difficul' ty iu determining the precise nature and ex tent of his wounds than in ordinary cases. Ht , was brought to the Washington Infirmary im mediately after the occurrence of the accident where he will remain in faithful aud skilful handi uiitil his recovery. A Touch or the Lash.?Yesterday, a young man hired a very fine team from the keeper ol a livery stable, and, after taking acompanioc in with him, went "bobbin round-' the city. His style ot driving nut suiting the owner, he &ent a messenger to request the return of hi; horses and carriage. The young man consid ered the request insulting, and made some threats against t'ue person who was the bearei of the request, his female companion urging him to carry Jhem out on the spot. In th( afternoon the team was returned to the stable where the messenger was sitting. The youm inau attempted to punish him there, but aftei a few unsuccessful attempts to strike hii cool, deliberate opponert. he found it neetvsarj to make a sudden and rapid retreat because o the skill with which n horsewhip was used bj the opposing hand. Ax Orcas Grinder, who was preparing t' nerenade the folks in the Centre Market, waj started from his position by a police officer this morning. The itinerant musician thei went to the Avenue, where, in a short time lie cracked U ^vther a large crowd, composec mainly of children; but he did not auoceed ii extracting fr in them a large number of pen ? nics. which, in this season of plenty, the ju veuiles expend for fruit and small beer. W< have always noticed that the monkey elicit more admiration than the melody; whicl either chows a love for toology paramount t< that for the music, or an admiration of th* tricks of the animal as being indicative ofmor merit than the mere turning of a crank afte the manner of the man at a grindstone.

His system is admira bly adapted to taat tnorough development an< severe discipline of the mind necessary to se cure the great objects of female education. A Grievous Nuisance.?Wo are informet that the alley iu the square bounded by Nintl and Tenth and E and F streets, and east of thi run, is in a condition most likely to breet cholera within a very short time. Vain effort have been made to induce tiome of the Corpo ration officers to have it cleaned, and to pre vent any such future accumulation of filth a; exists there. The B<:aid of Health are re spectfuliy requested to look at the premises as there are many poor negro families sur rounding it. who would go off like chaff wer< a pestilence to break out there. Bad Practice?We bad a complaint laid before us, this morning, by a gentleman wh< had suffered in the outward man by a partial application of the hydropathic system?name ly, a douche- from an upper window?the occu pant of the chamber emptying her slops on those below without respect to persons; thus showing no partiality in tier medical ministra tions. To say the least, (aud we, too, speak from experience.) we are not particularly fa vorable to that mode ot treatment. Job* T Russell, indicted for forgery, ar.d confined in jail since the last term of tne crimi nal court oi this District, appeared before hu honor, Judge Crawford, by habea* corpus, yea Unlay, attended by his counsel, Colonel M Thompson, and gave bail iu the sum of one thousand dollars for his appearance at the next term of the criminal oourt, and was there upon released frcrn custody. Cettee Market ?Another fine and exten sive display of fruit**, vegetables, am' meats this unrning, the priees about the unc as those of Saturday. Our preference is, that if any persons are to break their legj, the indi viduals who persist in throwing refuse fruit, such as canteloupe and watermelon rinds, on the footways, may be the victims. We fre quently hear of marketers being tripped by t&e slippery fragments. Tee Okpiai.?The Hoard of Managers of the Washington City Protestant.

It is sa;d that over $1,000 have been sub scribed by the persons employed in tlie Wash ington Navy Yard At a gue<3, we think wc may safely say that about $2,500 hare been already stobsciibcd, in this city, for the relief of the sufferers. Tee Alarm of Fire, last evening, about 8 o'clock, wa? cau ~d by the burning of gome ra^s, old papers, Ac., in a house on. Pennsyl vania avenue, between Third and Four-?nd-a half streets.

Joe Pentland intends visiting Washington with his Circus troupe, and will perform on the 30th and 31st of August, and the first of September. Joe is the popular clown to his own troupe, and is a host in hLaaelf. The es tablishment h^s been supplied with entirely new and brilliant equipments.

During the last few days, business on Water street and along our wharves has presented a much more encouraging, and lively appear ance than it lias for several months past. The number of vessels loading and unloading has been very considerable. The fine flouring mills of Messrs. Boyce A Taylor, Wilson, Ray A Bro., Edes A Lyons are all getting in full blast again, and the extensive cotton factory of Mr. mlson, (the Pioneer,) with tho multi tude of industrious operatives resembles a bee hive in mid summer. The iron furnace ol Poor A Co., is also in full blast, giving em ployment to a number of worthy operatives. The contract for furnishing the atone for the Treasury extension has been awarded to Mr. Dennis O'Neal, of our city. A portion of tb? stone will be brought from the Port Deposil quarries, and the balance from Mr. O'Neal'i quarries upon the Potomac. We would inform '4 Justice," of the Organ and Georgetown Advocate, that we alway. smell a rat when we see his tail; or, in othei words, judge of the character of a correspond ent by the language he uses, and always make it a point never to run a muck with an indi vidual whose head and heart aro both m bias?ed by corrupt principles, or the firs! named member, so downright Know Nothing ish (naturally, we mean,) in its character, a' to preclude the possibility of his couching a short communication in decent language. Jus tice is burned at the result of the election? that's all. As an evidence of the superiority of the Evening Star as an advertising medium, ft . I gentleman residing in our city had a want in serted yesterday, and this morning he hat been completely besieged with applicants eve: since he reached bis place of business; an<i when we left, they were still coming. We learn from the camp meeting in Mont gomcry county, that every thing conncjtcvj with it is moving on quietly and harmoniously The number of persons in attendance is verj large, and the pr ^pects for doing good is en couraging. A considerable number of oui Methodist friends contemplate attending tht meeting rear Bla.lensburg, which commcnce< on the 24th instant. Tbe following vessels arrived at ourwharvc; yesterday : Barque Wm. Chase, Dorry, St Thomas, to F. A A. 11. Dodge; Brig Fidelia Hicks, New York, to F. A A. H. Dodge; steamer Columbia. Harper.

Corn, none offering, would command Days Spectator. The Yellow Fever. We have but little additional news froa Norfolk or Portsmouth concerning the fever. The fever is raging in Norfolk with fearfu' rapidity, and many deaths are occurring there among the high and the low. In Norfolk, Capt. Freeman and R. C. Bar clay are reported dead. Benj. W. Palmer, Purser's clerk in the Gosport navy yard, it also dead. About twenty new cases were reported in Portsmouth on Saturday, a large proportion of which were colored persons. Among the sick, are Newton Ashton, Dr. Cocke, and Capt. George Chambers. Dr. J. N. Schoolfield and Mr. John Emer son of the Virginia Bank, are recovering. The destitute little children, (about 30 in number,) who have lost their parents by the pestilence, are snugly quartered at the Acade my Building, being kindly nursed and oared for. In addition to the Sisters,'' a number of charitable ladies had arrived at Norfolk to assist in nursing the sick; and nurses are still in demand. A merchant from Norfolk, dircct from Port mouth by the Seaboard and Petersburg Rail roads, brings the latest tidings from Norfolk aad Portsmouth, and they are of a truly mel ancholy character. He states there was no abatement of fever whatever. The general impression seemed to be that it was rather on the increase at both places. . From Hampton, we learn that Mrs. Segar's (from the infected district in Norfolk) was the only case of yelluw fever that has occurred there: reports to the contrary notwithstanding. Mrs. S. has entirely recovered. A correspondent of the Petersburg Express writes as follows: 41 About four-fifths of our white population, are scattered abroad in every direction, and those who remain are rapidly falling before the Fell Destroyer. God only knows what will be the end. Every relation I have, and nearly all my friends are gone. Gladly, most gladly, would I leave, but I cannot and will not desert our citizens in their distress " The Petersburg Democrat publishes the following letter from Norfolk, dated the 17th instant: "Provisions have become scarce; Meal, i3.50 per bushel. There is no butter in mar ket, and Baltimore corn beef can be obtained from only one house in the city ; in fact, sup plies of ail kinds have been cut off, and no mar ket carts dare approach our city ; for dread of violence from tueir neighbors in the country.
