% EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Alakm ?When the intelligence reached this city, yesterday afternoon, that a terrible accident had occurred on the Philadelphia and New York railroad?an account of wbich will be found in another part of the Star much anxiety ?u manifested on the part of many of our eitisens for the safety of friends whom they supposed might at that time be travelling on the road. It was not, however, until a Tate hour of the night?after ten o'clock?that the particulars were received, and thev were confined, principally, to the agents tor the public press. We notice in the list of the killed, Harry Rush, of Georgetown College; and among the wounded, Dr. Whelan, of the bureau of Mediciae and Survey, and Dennis 0. Kane, of Washington. Those are the only persons specified in the ? -?I-graphic 'ie.-patches as belonging to this neighborhood, though, doubtless, there are , friends r f others of the killed and of tho wounded residing hereabout, who are deeply distressed in consequence of tho sad eTent . while the publio at large must be painfully f affected at the intelligence. rTai Litest Dodge ? A certain young gen tleman, being rather lively last night, got into company of his liking, and went with them to a hoi Je where liquor is sold at a very low price. He had some money, and of course was the " fastest man in the ring." A friend hap pening to see in what a dangerous fix he had placed himself, went to bis father and gave him notice where his promising son could be found. T he father anned himself with a hone whip. and started for him; but as he was about entering the front door, the son, who had been told of his father's approach, left by the back door. Off went the youngster in a kind of trot ihat indicated an affection of the feet and ankles, or a top-heaviness which might bare been caused by a heavy load of pine-top. The father was cloee to him, and the horsewhip was singing a song that could not be mistaken The youngster took a sudden notion and made a dodge into the canal. The old gentleman stood and looked at the youngster a moment, and then exclaimed: " Jake, you may get drowned as fast you please: but if I oatoh you in old J.'s grog-shop. I'll give you !" The young man, after a struggle in the gas tar, succecded in reaching the opposite shore, fully determined to take a licking rather than use the same means again to escape from his indignant father. \oc5fl Max's Christian Association.? We have received tlrn second annual report of this association, embracing the reports of the president, corresponding secretary, treasurer acd librarian, together with the u<<me8 of offi cers, committees, etc. It appears from this report that, during the rait year, one hundred and fifty-four mem bars have been added to the association, and that two hundred and eighteen have renewed their membership by paying the annual fee ; the present number of volumes in the Library is about fifteen hundred. Much practical good has been accomplished, especially in the establishment of mission Sunday schools, visit ing the sick, and affording such relief as the necessitous within the range of the operations of the association required. Good News !?We were informed this morn ing that the business of limeing the gutters in the Second Ward has actually been com menced ! If the article is sufficiently strong and scattered in liberal quantities, it may eat up some of the reeking filth in that part of tho city. We would gladly hope that other sec tii*!* of Washington may be similarly (retted. Perhaps the removal of putrid substance* frcm the streets and alleys is neglected for fear of stirring up a stench that would prove intoler able! Although we have censured the city authorities for their indificrence to this irn Ertant subject, we will most cheerfully?jubi atly, if necessary?accord the proper credit p for evidence of a love of cleanliness on the part of ail ooncerned in the execution of the Corporation statutes regarding health. Toe Band.?We bad began to think that the Marine Band, which has always been considered one of the most excellent in the country, had of late deteriorated?the music tame and spiritless, exciting but little pleasure *?'Vto*PP,au??~~bot yesterday at the grounds of the Capitol it fully sustained its old reputa tion, and our ears were regaled with some as fine martial and operatic inusio as we have ever listened to. We suppose the master of the ISand has himself become aware of the apathy of his listeners, and has wakened up to the necessity of improvement. Let him not f.acken his sea]. W ith the privilege of select Ing the best musicians that offer, there i< every re<\son why the Band should be equal, if not superior to any in the United States. Wo.i t Do trejr Dvtt.?The hear, of dirt in ninth street, between li and F, oc asion d ' by deepening a well, still remains, diminished, ncwerer, by the remoral of two cartloads of the ma*s, which must so far be taken as the compliance ot the commissioner with his prom we made, gome eight or ten days ago to tho neighbor*, to remove the whole h*ap It keep* th*?. vicinity needlessly muddy in bad weather, and is at all umes a nuisance,'for the continued existence of which there is no excuse whatever. This matter was duly re ^r;ed to the Mayor some days ago, and those interested have no higher authority to which ?appeal. * I?, baajtp roa a Sharper?A man very jndch in want of elothing for his feet, went lato a store in the Seventh Ward and asked <^wlixini Bome ^ The lady eompaed, and the man coolly put two paire into his i-ocket and prepared for a sudden de P?rture. The l*dy jUat ? c<x>lij took ^ ?*n uj tie oollar and pulled the articles from nw pocket, and ordered him to leave forthwith, lbe man was astonished, but a survey of the lady si face and frame proved to his satisfac ti- n that he Jud better go off suddenly, as Were was strength and determination in that saop sufficient to insure him a good thi ashing. ?.*!kQL.,CT,1> ~T*10,e of our ei*i*?na residing la the lower part of the Seventh Ward, near tbe line of the canal, complain that they are neglected by the oorporate authorities. They are sadly deficient in pumps, and many of t^ein Lave to walk several squares to obtain pure drinking wtter This should not be, and ??sy means of okUining this ao-muob needed necessary of life should be afforded them. ? k ^'S^borhood is rapidly improving, and the value of real estate would be atili more ^creased by a plentiful supply of good pumps. First Guard Pic Nic or tdr Me C*a*ical Clpr will take place next Wednes VTafr .**. Arlington Springs. Fischer's brass string band has been engaged for the oc, and at that popular resort there are fine accommodations for daneing. Refresh ments will be provided; and nothing which can contribute to the enjoyment of the com |tBBJ Will be neglected by the enterprising roung gentlemen, who offer to the lovers of Innocent pleasure the luxury of one of the best pic-nics of the seaaon. Cort?**latbd Relief?Tbe Mhrcharts. There u to be a general meeting of the mem bers of the Merchants' Exchange, to-night, at their rooms, over the Washington Savings Bank, to take measures having iD TieW relief of the Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers. This movement is highly creditable to the large and respectable society of merchants, and we doubt BoC that they will present a contribution wor thy of their class of business. Mammoth Citccxrers.?We this morning saw some fine specimens of this vegetable, from the residence of George T. Massey. ?sq. Bach m easured rot less than sixteen inches m let /th, and at tbo thicker part elevon and a half inches in circumferenv.'?.' Two of them had grown together, longitudinally. The skin or rind was dark yellow, and the meat ap proaching milky whiteness. The fruit was Arm and of fine quality, and quite a cariosity. The ExcrBSiov or tbb St. Matthew's Sabbatb School, yesterday, to the White House, was largely attended Nothing what ever occurred to mar the festivities ; and inuo eent sport, such as swinging and racing by the children, filled ap the measure of the day's fxyoyseat of the juveniles. ?t . Watch ! Watch !? Last night a young man a " leetle tea'd," came rushing up Four-a half street at a late hour hallooing for the watoh. A young gentleman, supposing that something dreadful had occurred, stopped him. asked what was the matter? The stranger replied by a stunning outcry of wateh! and turning to his questioner told him he had been badly beaten on Maryland avenue, and*he the watch to tske the villains in charge. The gentleman suspicionlng that the stranger was contending with the " man-with-the-poker," directed him to the corner when tho guards usually stop; but unluckily they had just left to inspect another part of their beat. It is very unpleasant for any one to manage a man in such a condition. And though the guards would have performed their duty, they dislike the job as much as other people. Am to to Norfolk axd Portsmouth Sut febeus ? Metropolis Lodge, I. 0. 0. F.. of Annapolis, Md., has contributed $30 for that purpose, and deposited the same with Chubb Brothers for transmission. The employees of the Bureau of the Fourth Auditor of the Trea ury hare subscribed $38 in aid of the Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers. There are comparatively very few persons em ployed in that office. Joe Pxhtlaxd's Circcs Company made its first appearance in Washington this morning, and attracted considerable attention. The band of musicians attached to the troupe is excellent, the horses and ponies very hand some, and there can be no doubt that the per* formers will be well paid for their visit to the city. They have pitched their spacious tent upon the ground in the Centre Market space, recently occupied by a similar establishment. Thomas Baltimore, a colored man, was taken before Justice Bates this morning, and accused by his wife of disturbing the peace, threatening her life, breaking her furniture, and otherwise annoying and abusing her. Tom has been in the habit of binding h.s children to persons for the purpose of getting him out of difficulty; but he fell into strange hands this time, and his old game failed, lie was sent to jail for court. Thb Cektre Market was as well supplied as usual, this morning, with vegetables, fruit, Ac. The farms and gardens in the vicinity of the eity send an abundance of excellent pro visions, which are sold at moderate prices. It id to be regretted that good comfortable stands are not provided for the farmers. Fightimo ii* thb Strebts.?C~ H. Hines and Patrick Boyle were arrested yesterday add taken before Justice Bates for fighting in the streets. Hines gave seevrity for peace, and Boyle was sent to jail in default of securi ty. Watch Returss?John Rowe, disorderly in market; fine and costs. Ellen Dumphrey, drunk and disorderly; do. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Georqetown, August 30,1855. The sad intelligence which reached us thb morning from the scene of the railroad disas ter. nsar Burlington, informing us that Cap tain Boyce, of the United States Coast Survey, and his wife were among the killed, and his two daughters among the wounded, has cast a gloom over our entire city. Captain Boyce was one of our most useful and benevolent citiiens. was one of the firm of Boyce A Tay lor, and was universally respected by all who knew him. His loss will truly be a serious one to our city. Up toth* present time no period has been fixed for tho election to fill the vacancy in our Board of Common Council. Our own impres sion is, that the object of the delay is for the purpose of securing, if possible, two objects, which we have heretofore hinted at. We think, however, we may address to those who , cause the delay the language of the old revo lutionary General, " You no catch asleep a , weasel." Our citizens are wide awake and well ported and guarded to be surrounded or taken by surprise again. Edward 5. Wright, auctioneer, sold the other day a lot fronting 42 feet on Water street, and i running back to the channel of the river, to Dr. W. H. Grimes for $2,640. This same prop erty was sold some two or three years since for SI 700 We regret exceedingly to be compelled to request somo of the subscribers to the Star in our city to be more prompt in paying their ' qpbscriptions. I he publisher expects the agent to be prompt in his payments, and the only way for him to do so is for subscribers to be prompt in meeting their subscriptions when oalled upon. In our notioe, a few days sinoe, of the va rious milling establishments in and contiguous to our city, we unintentionally omitted that of Messrs. Berry A White. These gentlemen are generally among the foremost in turning out an article of flour that would do no discredit to any market or inspector's auger?no, not even to that of old George or his very efficient assistant Clabaugh. No change in the prices of flour or grain since our report of yesterday. Spectatob. ALEXANDRIA CORRESPONDENCE. Alexandria, Aug. 30,1855. Our City Councils, on the evening of Tuesday, elected Dr. T. Winston Physician to the Poor, vice Dr. J. B. Edmonds, deceased. The re* maining business was of no general interest.^ The bigamy case, which for some days past has attacted much attention among our people, was settled, at least for the preeent, by the dismissal, yesterday, by Justice Ramsay, of Mn. Dudley, the accused party. So far as we can learn, the amount collected in our city for the sufferers of the fever-stricken cities below, amounts to upwards of five hun dred dollars. Some of the committees, how ever, have Qot reported, and the final sum* ming up will doubtless exhibit a large inorease upon that sum. The Second Ward collection, up to this morn ing, amounts to $232. Joe Pentland's circus, which amused our people yesterday afternoon and night, took up its line of march before day this morning. To-morrow night the Campbell Minstrels give an entertaiuinent at Liberty Hall. The travel cn our railroads grows daily. Yesterday, a tremendous crowd of passengers oaiiie over the line. The camp-meeting at Union camp draws nigh its close, after the performance of a good work, ^t the Methodist Protestant Churoh in our city, also, the religious revival has given tweuty-five converts to the ohuroh. Yesterday, at the wharf, flour was dull at $8 50, though selling readily at $8,374; wheat, red $1.70; white $1.80; corn aotive at 80a86o. Am. ADDITIONAL FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE BY TUE CANADA. We yesterdsy published a brief telegraphio dispatch, giving a few of the items from Eu rope, brought by the steamer Canada, which arrived at Halifax yesterday morning, and are now enabled to furnish additional intelligence : The Rufsian fleet at Sweaborg was not de stroyed, but the damage done tne place was most disastrous. An immense conflagration was caused by the bombardment, whioh raged for forty-five hours, destroying storehouses, magazines, arsenals, Ac The various powder magazines in the place blew up, together with other military stores, projectiles, Ac. The despatches of the French and English Admirals, do not say any thing about the Rus sian ships at Sweaborg The allies lost no lives in the engagement, and only two officers and thirty men belonging to the English fleet were wounded. The French exaoed with about the same number of woundea. Swea borg. however, did not surrender, notwith standing the terrible blow the allies claim to have iuflioted upon it. THE CRIMEA. Very important news from the Crimea had been reoeived at London. Early on the mor ning of the 16th the Russian army under Gen. Liprandi attacked tho line nf the Allies en the Tcbernaja. The Russians wero 60,0(/0 strong, and the battle lasted for three hours, proving a most sanguinary contest. The Sar dinians fought most bravely with the Allier, and repelled the Russians with terrible loss. Four or five thousand Russians were killed and 400 were taken prisoners. The low of Alliee wau bat small. The Russians were in complete retreat when the French reserve came up. Omer Pacha bad raeeivea orders to return to the Crimea instead of going to Asia. A St. Petersburg dispatch sajs that Qorts chakoff has received orders to sink the Kus sian fleet if Sebastopol falls. THK SECRET EXPEDITION. The London Morning post, the ministerial paper says that it had reason to expect stirring and, hitherto, unexpected news from the Cri mea. This is supposed to refer to the great secrtt expedition. FROM ASIA. The latest accounts from Asia Minor say that Kara has been completely invested by the Russians, and the first parallel opened ; and that all communications with Eneroum had been stopped. Turkey is sending reinforcements to the aid of Ears. DENMARK^. It is reported that the Danish Admiral, Mourier, has gone to Paris to ask the advice atid assistance of the Emperor touching the differences existing between Denmark and the United States concerning the Sound duties. Denmark fears that the United States will commence hostilities bv taking possession of the Danish West India Islands. FRANCE. . Wednesday, the 15th, being the fete, of Na poleon, was a holiday on the Bourse. The festival was celebrated at the theatres, with illuminations, Ac., and tbe commutation of the sentences of 2,000 prisoners. Immense preparations were made for the reception of Queen Victoria, whom the Em peror went to meet at Boulonge on Tuesday. The Empress would not be present at the re ception. Ex President Fillmore was introduced to the Emperor by Minister Mason. ITALY. Something has been said of a Congress of atatesmen to meet at Vienna to settle the af fairs of Italy, but this is not likely to be car ried into effect at present. The statement that a concordat between F ranee and the Iloly See existed is contra dicted. The Italian government is offering every ob stacle to the recruiting of the British Italian legion. RUSSIA. It is reported that tbe commissariat of the southern Russian provinces had declared that it is impossible to provision more men than are now in the Crimea, consequently no fur ther reinforcements will be sent there at pre sent. AUSTRIA. Negotiations continue between London,Paris, and Vienna respecting Austria's continued oc cupation of tbe Principalities. The London paper? say that the negotiations have arrived at the point of a trifle treaty, binding France, England, and Austria not to conclude an arrangement separately with Rus sia. ENGLAND. Her Majesty Queen Victoria, escorted by six ships of war, crossed the British channel to Boulogne on the 17th, on her long-contem plated visit to France. The wheat pressing forward to market bt ^ms to embarrass the western roads, whose frt ight equipage will soon be fully employed. The Illinois Central Road ba* found it neces sary to order three hundred more freight cars. A large amount of wheat has already reached Chicago from the southern section of the road.

Wagosb for Australia.?A Pittsburg man lracturing house has just sent I) Australia a Urge lot of their own make of wagons, to sup ply order from an Australian company. The order will, it is said, be renewed to the same firm every month. 1CT The Greatest Medical Discovery ?( the age Is AVER'S CATHARTIC PILLS. They don't help complaints, but they cure them One Box haa cured Dyspepsia Three boxes have cured the wont cases of ttorof ?la ?' Two boxes have cured Erysipelss. One box always cures the Jaundice. Three boxes are sure to cleanse tbe system from Boils?often less than one does it. Two boxes have completely cured the worst of uleers on thele^s. Small doses seldom fell to cure the PL'es. One dose cures the headache arising from afoul stomach. Strong doses often repeated expel every worm from the body. They should be given to children who are always, more or less afflicted with this scotrrge. Au a gentle Physic they have no equal. Oae box cures derangement of the liver. Haifa box cures a cold. They purify tbe blood, and thus strike at the foundation of every disease. An a Dinner Pill there Is not an equal in the world. They are purely vegetable and can do no harm, but do accomplish au unaccountable amount of good. Prepared by DR. J. C. AVER, Lowell, Mass., and Hold by every respectable druggist. Sold by Z D.

It Is qow fenerallv admitted by our best physicians, that oeal difficulties can only be successfully treated by local applications. This practice has been Sursued from the first with respect to external in animation and corrosions, and we see not why diseases of the fnroat and lungs may not be treated In tbe saine manner; we believe they may. In this variable climate of ours, where lung and throat complaints have become so prevalent and rife, we earnestly recommend to the public, and to ike affiictrd t specially, to avail themselves of Dr. Curtis'* remedy ?[one who has tried it.] See advertisement in this paper.
