EVENING STAR, LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tbe Fevbb I*fbctbd TJISTRIC TS .?Ports mouth is situated on the ?outhwest side of the Elisabeth river; End at the commencement of the fever the population was about twelve thousand. Qosport is s?ath of P nrtsmouth, a marsh. a third ot - mile iu length, intervening, and thai locallj separating the two. The population was about two thousand. Thej are under the sama municipal government. The navy yard. it is well known, is at Gospott. The epidemic first appeared in Gosport. having been brought thither by the steamship Ben Franklin from St. Thomas, and the first case occurring on the 2oth of June last, and the second case on the 4th of July, and the third case about the 20th of July. Since that time it has bt en spreading, although the physician.- are generally i greed that it is not contajrious The opinion of Drs. Stone and Pennistoo, of New Orleans, is, that the number ?t deaths is smaller in proportivjn to population, in Portsmouth and Norfolk, than that in New Orleans In Portsmouth and Gosport, there are not now more than one thousand whites, or one out of every thirteen or fourteen of the permanent resident popula tion : yet there are from twelve to fourteen death/ and, <>n an average, fifteen new cases, daily. it should be stated th u, beside Gosport, a loc-'litj. known a.- Newtown, is near the first named : and this, too, is within the municipal government of P*>rti?notith. Norfolk is <>a tho northeast side of the river, about three-fourths of a mile frvm Portsmouth. I That entire seetiou of country is few ground The business portion of Norfolk is usually overflowed twice a year?during the equinoc tial gate?. The newspapers have represented j that cases of yellow tever have originated there; and a< to Gosport, person* have, in that locality, contracted the disease, and after ward spread themselves over Portsmouth aud the adjacent country. Many individual- who have left Portsmouth and Norfolk are living in bnrns, loghouses, Ay., (which will eventually produce a great deal of aitkness,) not a tew of tuem without bedding, a* ;ueh articles cannot be obtained?nothing of the kind b?ing alloyed be taken from either of the above-named cities. The result of all this is. that some of those who fled hive returned, preferring to meet the fever or death rather than, away from the scenes of the in fection, to linger out a miserable existence Wo may sUle, in this connection, that the want of pnysicians is severely felt?only three ot th; medical profession in tbeee cities being able to attend to their duties. Two have died; while others are down with the fever. Nortukr.s Lisffr!?About haLf-pa&i seven o'clock, last night, the northern portion of the Leavens was illuminated with tne hue of ire, which gradually shifted toward (he oast; commencing, apparently, out Tenth and dis appearing at Four-and-a-half street. The at tention ot our citisens was dirt cted to the phe nomenon, which some of them concluded must be the aurora boreal is, while others thought that it is not late enough in the season for such natural displays. Beside, the opirion was gravely pronounced that the reflection partook too much of the hue of fire But the engine-bells were sounded, and the machines haaled out, and dragged as nearly as possible iu the direction of the light, out Seventh st. The parties, however, returned after half an hour s absence, and one of them reported that ?hey lean ed from a countryman on his way to market, the reflection in the clouds was caused by the burniug of a barn or tarm hou^e three oi four miles distant from the city. This fact beii.g made known, of eoor.-e the opinion of the aurora borealis was surrendered. Siuce writing the above, we learned th-t Mother's barn, containing a considerable quantity of grain, situated above the toll-gate, on the plank r>ad, wm destroyed by tire. SrccESt or thk Allies.?Yesterday a por tion of the Fifth Ward was iu commotion be cause of the combined attac k ot the forces of the city police and th?- county constabulary in the performance of duty, upon a house whieh ba<i hitherto been considered impregnable. The assauit was led by officer Little, who suc ceeded in obtaining admission by a strategem. As seoa a-j lite onjcc-ts of the officer: were known, a sudden attack of the inmates forced them to evacuate "der ouse'" very suddenly. Officers Wise and Simmds now went to the assistance of the county officers, and a scene ??nsued which we have not space to de.-eribe : but 14 Sebastopol'* was uke >, and the garrison carried away prisoners to Batesvillc. The offices engaged iu to- c<>ufiici, touched with charity, interfered in favor of tbo prisoners, and instead ot being held to bail for court, whkh c?>uld have been done, they were or dered to give security t? keep the peace, with whi h requuemest tney complied. Fie* asd Watbb.?Between twelve and one one o'clock this morning the fire bells sounded an alarm. A reel belonging to ono of the en gine companies wat hauled out, and dragged along by two persons only, in the direction of Georgetown, where, we learn, was the indica tion of a raging fire?a tence, it is said, being in a bias? ; but of ccurse this was not, at the time of the alarm, known to the couple of fire men, who, in tueir commendable seal to save their neighbor's property from tire, had ven tu:ed out iu the heavy raiu which was then descending The result was. they returned to their h'-mes dripping wet, for umbrellas are useless articles to the fraternity of which they are worthy members Fir ia Distekt.?Jno.

The oase of John Rariden may po-sibly prove to be much more serious than be ima ines. In the conflict with his wife he struck er with a stick, we are informed, and she is sj injured as to render a postponement of the trial neceseary iu order to obtain the principal witness.

Ami ALong Drive.?A paper in Indiana county, Pennsylvania chronicles the passage through the Iv.wu of Indiana of Mr. J.

They looked remarkably fine, consid ering that the had bocn on the road since the first of April, a little over four months from the time of being started. In viow of our nu merous aleauLohips and sail vessels plying be tween New Orleans and the North, and ot .the various lines of railway leading to tho West and Southwest. it is singular that these cattle should be taken such an overland route. MtftBBOOu Aristocrapt.?Tho Newbury* port Herald, alluding to the growing extrava gance in the United Mates, says: 11 There is not a country in the world where the people are becoming so extravagant in their mode of dress and living as in the United States. It is one of the worst signs of the tiua?s. The habits of this mushroom aris to racy ar$ really disgusting. How it looks to sco boys sporting diamonds by the thousand dollars worth at a time, whose fathers were accustomed to wheelbarrows, and whose chil dren are pretty certain to be in tho workhouse. And girls, eilly simpering things, weighed down with jewels and bracelets, whose motheis broke their backs at the washing-tub, scout ing floors and picking oakum- The real sob* atuntiul aristocracy never indulge in such lop penes and fooleries."
