Aid to the ArrncTED ?The workmen in the employ of Prevost, Winter A Company, upon the Capitol extension and the Patent Of* fice, have subscribed the nam of $176 for the relief of the distressed at Norfolk and Ports mouth. On their own account they added $190. the entire amount to be divided equally between the two citie3. The mouey will be lorwa^ed without delay to the sufferers for whose relief it was constituted. In the lan guage of the National Intelligencer, 44 it pre sents not gold from the treasure of the wealthy, but that which has been earned in the awc.it of the brow of each of the donors. It is the offering of men who are ever among the fore ui 'jt i>i acta of beneficence, and upon whom the reliance of their country may be reposed with confidence in every hour of need and every trying emergency.'' We leurn that the congregation of St Mat t^e,T 8 Church contributed yestorday the sum of S325 for the ?ame charitable olj^t; ex kibiting a lovely feature of Christian sympathy for the afflicted. The aggregate amouit col lected at the Washington navy yard is SS95.87. t A Duel, we are told ?On Saturday night two you'ig men. and one who might have been their parent, entered the trial room of the guard house rather hastily, and anxiously in quired if the Captain was in. Being answered iu the negative, the e:der geotlemaH remarked that his companions were desirous of prevent ing a duel between two of their friends The c&ailenge had parsed, and a hostile meet ing would certainly take place if the law did not interfere to prevent it. Justice Morsell was sent for and arrived; but he discovered that the witnesses hi?d gone in search of him The Justice wait-d and had a short conversa tion with the o'derly gentleman, who also re tired shortly after hi* conversation ctased. Tl e witnesses have not yet returned to the guard house, and, it is supposed, never will be caught in that trap again. One of them made a remark, rather incautiously, which, if it had been ma Je on oath before a magistrate, would have given all the parties to the affair an op portunity to l<-arn a trade under the instiuc tion .?f certain United States agents. If we mistake not, all the parties to an "affair of honor' in this District are liable to indictment unier the Congressional anti-ducling law. It is geuerally believed by thoso acquainted with what took place on Saturday night, that more wine than blood will be spilled in the settlement of the difficulty. The Excursion to Piney Point, on Thurs day last, of the American Riflemen, was one of the most pleasant and delightful of the sea son, as we learn from one of the party?every thing passing i ff most agreeably, and reflect ing much credit upon the committee of arrange ments who got jp the programme for the day's enjoyment The fine steamer Baltimore. Cant. Reynolds, carried the party down, ai riving at the Point in six hour.-1 and three-quarters from Washington. On airiving they dispersed to amuse tLoin^lvcs. ca;h to his taste, some in fishing and bathing, Ac., while others ke^t up the dance, the fine pavilion being filled with the votaries of Terpsichore. The party re mained at the Point until a late hour in the afternoon. On their passage up the bo:?t was overtaken by a storm when near the LoWer Cedar Point light-boat, the rain falling in tor rents and compelling the boat to com *-u- and remain so for about u half an hour. They ar rived safe at home about 12 o'clock at night, highly pieased with their trip, and exjire-^ing the:r ^.probation of the manner in whi-h everything was coi.ducted. Tho companies represented were the National Ou <rd, B^.n-i Jltiles, Piesi-i?nt's M >ui;ted Guard, M >nto0Ji ?ry uaards, anu other* not reoollc.ted. Col Joe Shillisgton ? Our ctuemc-d and enterprising tellow citizen, wbu is now making the tour of Europe, is, according to the latest private accounts, enjoying himself finely ; vis iting the principal cities, and participating in all the enjoymeLt? compatible with bisgallant but modest character. We take this <pportu nily to siy we doubt the rumor that tho main object of his visit t<? 41 father-land was to get himself a wife. as (whether with justice or not we cannot s .j, it hi-.s all along been renorted that he was m.tde an unwilling c iptive'to the charm < of a fair Washingtoman beforo he left the city. Time, however, will ver fy or cou tudLt the assertion. As our friend Joe is observant of men and things, we may anticipate that he will enable us. on his return, to present to the public some of bis notes of travel, including his items taken in the camp of tno Allies beforo Sebastopol! The Camp Meeting on the Bladensburg Gir^u i was largely attended yesterday ; not a tew people from this city and the surrounding neighborhood being present. The roads ail uuy were lined with vehicles, arid especially was th.s the cuoc on the return, in the evening. Ihe handsome, tushionai le carriage the ordi nal y bugcy, aa*l the rough couutry wagon, were alike called into requisition by the're spective passengers. Some gentlemen, with fast teams, exhibited tha running properties of their nags, to the shame or mortifij-ition, perhaps, of those were compolle 1, owing to their invalid h Tie fl^sh, to jog uloug at a slow Sace. The rain falling in th?. evening put a ainper on the camp congregation, so far as outside exercises were concerned. The Columbia:* Baptist Association, re cently in sesiion iu Alexandria, adjourned, on Saturday to meet next August with the Pleasant Vale Church, Virgiaia. Previous to the adjournment, they held an especial seas-.n of pr.?yer in behalf of the yel low fever eufler?rs fn Portsmouth and Nor folk?the services being deeply solemn and impressive. Forty-two dollars were collected from among the ministers, although many of the delegates had '.eft for their homed.

Moke Aid.?The collections taken up yes terday at fee. Matthew s Catholic church, we are gratified to learn, amounted to 5323 46. Considering the numerous calls made for the same purple iB every quarter of the city, and toe number of person? out of town, this amount speaks wed for the liberality of the conirieza tion at M.

Their Sistors of charity are maligned; they send them to thd very home oi the cUumnijAtor to l*bor in their <3*11 log ofUbor nud mercy.

One week sinse the Sunday collection; at St. Patrick's chuich, in this city, amounted to J26u for the benefit of the yellow fever suf ferers at Norfolk and Portsmouth, and yester day. as we have paid $325 wero raised f ?r the sanne A.urpcse. Probably nearly as much more was co!!ccted in the othei Catholic ehur "he of the District. Thii is as it should be.

Treatment or Yellow Feyx* -Wecheer fully publish the following communication froiu the late steward of the steamer Fremont having confidence in the statement of tbe writer: . Washington, August 27, 1855. r: Editor: I would recommend, by your rrinission, a simple remedy for yellow fever, wad steward of tbe steamer Fremont, and on tbe trip from New York to California we put iato Rio Janeiro for coal. We were detained there fifteen days, and during that time we had several cases of yellow fever. There was no doctor on board, but we had a very fine medicine chest. Knowing that sailors were hardy and strong men, I gave them a double dose; for example, tw large wine glares of caster oil, and one tot, or half a gill of brandy; then wrapped them with two or three blanket?, and they were well men in three or four day*. I would advise persons who have not tbe fewr, la the infected districts, to take a simple or common dose of oastor oil and brandy, mixed, which will be found to bo one of the best pre unlives of yellow fever. I have so much confidence in this remedy, that I would wil lingly adventure to Norfolk to-morrow, in the first boat. Yours, respectfully, James Wormlit.

The steamer Qrisaba arrived at New Or leans on Saturday, with dates from Vera Cruz to the 23d inst. Santa Anna left the City of Mexico on th* 8th mat., with an escort of 2,500 men, and Signed his abdication at Perote. He embarked on the 17th inst., at Vera Cruz for Havana. Two days after he left Mexico seven or eight hundred of his escort revolted; killing one or two of their officers. They then joined the in surgents. The Alvarei platform has been adopted. Gen. Carre is provisional President of Mexico, and La Vega commander-in-chief of the army All the State prisoners had been liberated. A mob bad guttod a large number of houses, including that of Santa Anna's mother-in-law. The appointment of Seuor Vidal, as minis ter to the United States (who comes a passen ger in the Orizaba) is revoked. A fight occurred at Vera Cruz between two revolted battalions and a regiment that con tinued faithful to banta Anna. The former were beaten and left in the mountains. Fif teen or twenty were killed before order was restored. Two Week Later from California. The United States mail steamship, George Law arrived in New York on Saturday, bring ings California mails of August 1, #1,245 616 in treasure on freight, and 442 passengers, all in fcood health. hostile operations at pktrupaclowski. The most important views relates to the oper ations of the allied fleets of the northwest coast. They con&itted of eight war ve-sel. and steamers. and arrived off Petropaulow ski, on the 15th day of May, but the garri son had already left for the Amoor river, in the Russia frigate Aurora, corvette Dwina and two merchant vessels. The escape of the gar rison was was a master stroko on tho part of the Russians, who availed themselves of a dense fog which set in on the night of the 17th ?d April, and so eluded the English war steam- j < r> Encounter (screw; of 14 guns, and Bara counter (side wheel; of 6 guns, which had been blockading the harbor for fifty dav* previous. The orders to evacuate were re ceived from tho Russiau head quarters in Si beria uu anchoring in the harbor, a detachment was sent on shore by the commanders of the fleets Rear Adiuirar Bruce, of the English, and Rear Admirar Fourichon (a ncwly-ap pointed an'l^sxceedingly energetic man of only forty-five yars of age,) of tho Frenoh. Th.-y landed an 1 tounil tho town deserted, save by about ono hundred Kamsohatka dogs, a French naturalized American, and two Americans, wh) raised the stars and stripes over their bouses when the forces landed, claiming that as the russians had abandoned the place and left it to them, they were the possessors of the soil. These men are engaged in trading, and are represented as doing a good business The dogs are in a starving condition, and followed tho invaders about town for bits of biscuit. One of them was brought away by Commander Ro-encoat, of the Obligado. The parties wero divided into companies, who proceeded to burn, blow up and destroj ihe arsenals, storehouses and all government buil m.gs. >,* >t a vestige of any public work was left standing, exccpt the hospital, which, witu the church and dwellings of the poorer tk*se? *nb&hitants, was left untouched. I he inhabitants commenced deserting the place shortly alter tbe garrison embarked. Accompanied by tho authorities, thev started on or about the 20th of April teward Tcbinsk; but tbe Governor's wife being enciente the tlignt continued only to the small fishing vil lage of Avuche, some twenty miles inland. The following day after the arrival of the Allie? the destruction of the fortification commenocd. Those were fascines constructed of immense logs?the walls being sixteen feet inthicktCa. Such was their strength they re-i ted *11 efforts for come time, and were linal y r:ited to the ground by the agency of powdor. It appears that tho policy of the Ru-si\n Government had charged rather sud denly in this matter. After thu battle of last year, orlers came for strengthening the forts, an I though at that time ?ueh a resistance was made as to repel its as3ailauts, there being but one t'er of guns, it was ordered to increase it to a double tier. The destroyers found embrasures for 51 guns of heavy calibre. Why this sudden change of policy took place, may perhaps, be explained by that on which the "Russians hare always a^ted?of retiring into the interior from their invaders, and avoiding docisive engagements. This time, however, they have made nothing by the movement, and with the increased streagth of the pla^e, it would seem that they might have m. de a moro obstinate resistance than before. The fleets did not leave the plnce until the demolition was complete. The fleets have gone to oruise for the present am >ug the Aleutian inlands and wiilprobab'y look in at Sitka. An English and a French squadron have proceeded by the China S ia to the mouth of tho Atnoor river, where, the dis patch eays, there will soon be severe fighting. There are about ten ships of war in these fleet#, which wi u'd be j >ined by the steamer Bri.-^k, now at l'ctropaulowski The line-of-batt!c <hip Monarch is the flag ship of tho English fleet.
