t 5 EVENING STAR. # local intelligence. Relief fob the Yellow Fever Scffer ?The clerks and other employes of the War Department hare contributed 570 75 for the relief of the afflicted in Norfolk and Porte mouth, and the funds hare been remitted by M<?srs Chubb Brothers, banker?, who have forwarded from this city in all 5975, and hope to increase the sum very much more. We learn that, in addition to other contrib utions, the clerks in the office of the Clerk of ] the United States House of Representatives hare contributed 5300; and two officers of the >rmy have each given SI00 for the same char itable purpose. Mrs. C. S. Jones, of Washington, hu gone to the infected oities to nurse the sick, wishing to be employed wherever she can be of the most service. The Rev. Joseph Asehewanden. of Trinity Church, Georgetown, leaves to-day for the in fected district. ? . A Seilpcl Juvenile Dbiveb?This morn ing. the horse attached to the carriage of Mrs. Randall, who resides in the First Ward, wm ,eeen running on the Avenue, at a fearful speed, voward the Capitol. That lady and two of her children were in the vehicle?a boy, about 'line years of age, acting as the driver. It was an exciting scene, but the little fellow ex hibted a remarkable degree of calmness, hold ing the ribands with the skill which attaches to a veteran Jehu. Away flew the horse?the spectators meantime breathless with appre hension of fatal consequences. He kept clear <?f all encumbrances on the way until he reached the vicinity of Sixth street, when he turned the horse on a pile of bricks, which, like a barricade, checked its further progress. While speaking of the heroism of the lad, it is no less gratifying to add, that though a wheel of the vehicle was shattered, the pas sengers escaped without damage other than that attendant on the fear excited by the dan gerous occurrence. The Noctcbjtal Minstrel.?Several com munications have appeared in the Star, speak ing in extravagant terms of the vocal proper ties of one of our cititens; the writers regarding him as altogether incognito, and soliciting Additional treats of his melody, which they compare to that of Mario, Salvi, Rosi. Beue ' detti, and other famed vocalists. A friend of our>. who is capable of judging in the pre mises, says that any one who wants to know the mirstrel can very easily became acquaint ed with him, as he is not addicted to *? dodg ing," whatever may be his habits of modesty; and that he certainly has a very fine and pow erful voice which just suits " the balmy sum mer nights" of our metropolis, but that airs other than operatic gems," better suit his .artistic powers. Not the Man.?A week or two ago we no ticed a communication in a New York paper, to the effect that the mutilated human body recently found in Prince George's county, Maryland, was probably that of Mr. Gantt, xwho was represented as having been loose in his expression of free soil or abolition notions, and that, therefore, it was reasonable to pre lum* he had been murdered in consequence? ? an imputation or suspicion contemptible as it was unjust. But Mr. Gantt has put at rest the foal calumny, by writing to the New York Herald to inform the public that he is not the man who was found murdered in our neigh boring eonnty of Maryland ; and surely he osght to know, uuless it can be proved 41 that he is a liar and the truth is not in him ! " i ??The Campbells are Coming"?not a drove of those faithful animals, so valuable for travelling purposes ia the East, and which ?et ao good an example to the toper in abstain ing for daysfrom drink. but44 the Campbells," wbo. for eleven years past, have been travers ing the country, and delighting the inhabi tants with their fine vocal and instrumental music, and other performances characteristic of Ethiopian bands. Dr F. A. Jones, the courteous and popular agent, is in town, mak ing preparations for the advent of the troupe. It will be seen, by reference to the advertise ment. that they will commence their series of diversions next Monday night, at Odd Fellowi' Hall During this season of dullness, the Camp bells will be welcome. Paid Fire Department.?Many of our citi E?ns favor such an organisation, but we do recollect of its ever having been seriously brought to the attention of ue Municipal Fa thers To show the working of the system in Providence, Rhode Island?and one fact is jrorth a doien speculations or theoriee?we 5tate. it appears from the report of the chief engineer that, under the voluntary system there were, from March I, 1853, to February 1?. 1854. twelve months, 138 fires and alarms, with an average loss of $347.764 ; under the naid system. 52 fires and alarms, and a loss of $5-5 "Ml The contrast carries with it a com ment on which all tax-paying cititens should )>nder.

La Ave. one of the most importent cases in this districb sinoe it k ~ became the seat of the Supreme Government of the United States. It is th&t of Joseph Heard an Englisman a K N, swearing his life against the Editor of the Truth after abu.-eing him since 1850 and doing things That no good allien would attempt?he is now about'to try again to deprive him of his Liberty as he and his associates in Crime did on June 13, 1851. Let every friend of The Truth come to Capt. Cfoddardb and see for themselves ! James Rubersion Editor of the Truth. * The Harvest?Messrs. John McKillop k Co , of the Commercial Agency. Baltimore, in the pamphlet whioh they nave recently issued, concerning the crops in different counties of Maryland, Virginia, and several of the south ern and western States, say, while speaking ?f the District of Columbia, ??there are rt Grted to be 18,000 acres under cultivation. ie wheat erop is estimated at 23,160 bushple, ?nd corn bO.OOO bunhela?an increase of one U*ird dace 1850 ; rye, 4,500 bushels?increase nearly one-fifth; oats, 10 000 bushels, or nearly ene-fourth increase ; tobacco about 9.000 lbs., r cr almost one-sixth more than 1850. The hay I bar vest is likely to yield 2,4U0 tons, or nearly tme-fourth increase over 1H50." Jcvexilh Incendiaries?Several of our t'titenj, who have farms uear the city, have ?*?n very much troubled and put to expense ?y the burning of their barn*, stables, poultry ?ou>?<. Ac., by incendiaries, believed to be ??y? or young men residing in thecity. They have now laid a plan which will 4< kill or cure s<>me of those young vandals. They have failed to obtain satisfaction by the law for want of testimony. Hereafter, they ex ? ? that the evidence of the dead incendiary 4 will be sufficient, especially if he r in the ict of firing property A few deaths of this 1 kind will be apt to destroy the 44 committee system ' OrncER A. E L Kebsr arrested a man named Thomas Broderick on Monday last, at the railroad station, as Brcderick was prepar ing to depart in the cars. He was taken be fore Justioe Goddard. where he was charged with assaulting Wm. O'Sullivan and breaking # ??ifl leg on the evening of the 231 of July. The wound w<j inflicted by a blow with an ordi nary chair. Broderick was held to b il in the sum of 5 00 for his appearance at the Criminal Court. The Water Works.?A number of gentle men. members of the Baltimore City Councils, were in this city yesterday They came hither, it is said, officially to obtain certain informa ~tion relating to the water-works in the course of construction by the Government. The ob ject of their visit we learn was not fully ac complished. and they departed with the inten tion of returning ia a few days. Di?Tr*BiNc the Peace?Timothy Shan non and Thoe. Lynch, were arrested yesterday for disturbing the peace of a neighborhood by Addling and dancing. Those little dances are the only amusemenUof a large nudiber of I laboring men and law-abiding citizens But when they annoy a neighborhood, and become } obnoxious, they are taken notiee of by the po lice. Justice Bates held the parties to secu rity for peace. ?-? The Camp Meeting in Montgomery county, Xd., closed this morning. It proved to be a jfry pleasant and profitable one Estmtaisiikxt.?We with pleasure call the attention of the public to the entertain ment advertised by the Sabbath-school of the Sixth Presbyterian Church. This is the first of a series that will be given during the fall and winter, and we can assure those who majr attend them that they will not only be grati fied, but improved and edified We nave heard the Rev. Mason Noble, the builder and projector of this edifice and congregation, ^Pe*k in glowing terms of tbe improvement made by the youth of this Sabbath-school, and of the influence which he trusted they were destined to exercise for good over the minda of the youth of that locality and elsewhere. He entered heartily into these entertainments, enoouraging and approving them by his presence and ad vice. and, since his departure from his native ?land, other ministers of the gospel, who have been present at tbe recitations, have given them their approval and support. The church is situated at the corner of Maryland avenue and Sixth street, Island. We would remark. en pa*sant, that the Rev. Mr Helfenstein, of Pennsylvania, will supply the pulpit of this church for a limited perkxl. * Mama a Potu.?Last night a man, appa rently sober, applied for lodging at the cen tral guard home, lie waa shown to a cham ber in the lower range, where in the course of the night he bogan to show symptoms of mania a potu. His fears were excited, and he re quested to be placed in a cell that did not have two doors, as he was fearful that Mr. Harper would get into him. He also saw rep tiles of frightful forms crawling on the floor. The keeper stood by him to banish his fears, and this morning be appeared well enough to depart. Rarider, who was sent to jail, charged with assaulting nnd beating his wife, has been re leased at her request. She thinks that the blow she received from him has not seriously injured her, and she does not wish to Drose cute her husband. He is a kind husband, but when under the influence of liquor he becomes quarrelsome. Justice Bates held him to se curity. Excursion.?The German Evangelical Lu theran congregation design a pleasant trip to the Great Falls of the Potomac, on Monday next, in order to aid them in the erection of their church in the Seventh Ward. Apart from the laudable object of the congregation, the lovers of wild and beautiful scenery cannot fail to be gratified with the excursion proposed. A Fight.?Yesterday afternoon, two huck sters got into a fight at tbe Centre Market, and one of them was pretty severely handled by his opponent?his lip split, his face much bruised, and his clothing soiled with blood. The parties were arrested by officer Bushei and taken before a magistrate, who held them to security for peace.
