EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The Late Railroad Accident ou the Cam* den and Amboy railroad *u equally as terri* ble u at Irat reported bj telegraph ; the count* bj mail not in tho least extenuating the dre&dfal results. Mr. Dennis O'Kane. from Georgetown Col lege, D. C , had his thigh fractured, and was dreadfully bruised about the body. His head .and face were, it is represented, swollen in a frightful manner; but notwithstanding all this, the unfortunate man did not lose his usual flow of good spirits. Then ho was called upon he said : "I thank God I am not worn?please corer up my feet, as the flie? annoy me much, and go attend to those who are more in want of your assistance." We stated yesterday that Com. Smith, the chief of the Bureau of Docks and Yards (Uni ted States Navy) was rather badly injured ; that Mrs. Smith was likewise injured, and her colored servant w >man. Catharine Brown, killed. Also, that D*. Whelan. the chief of the navy bureau of Medicine and Surgery, re ceived a lacerated wound of the thigh. But the most melancholy (District) part of the nar rative is to be repeated: Dr. Boyce died ohortly after he was extricated from the ruins; his in juries being of t frightful character liis daugh ter Emma, a chanjir.g young lady of twenty two died shortly after her leg was amputated. Mr. Harry Rush of Georgetown, is, too, among the dead. We hear that little hope of the re covery of Mrs. Boyce can be entertained. Tho two younger children of Capt. Boyce escaped comparatively uninjured. Dr. Wheel iiu. though greatly contused and bruised, and gifforing from a severe laceration of the thigh, assisted in the operations being performed on bis fellow sufferers more hurt than himself. Ststematic Plan or Relief.?At a meet ing of the Merchant's Exchange, held at their rooms last night, the following named gentle men were appointed to solicit subscriptions in behalf of the Norfolk and Portsmouth suffer .ers First Ward?J.

Am Elk Hcnt ?Yesterday morning, at About 3 a. m . the hounds of Mr. Talbert, re aiding on the Eastern Branch, near this city, snuffed the soent of one of the beautiful elks kept by Clark Mills, the artist, on his fariu near Bladensburg, that had got away in some manner. The chaso then began, and the animal was hunted some thirty miles over the country by the dogs, awaking all sleepers within a mile of the route of the chase, and inducing sportsmen to join in it in considerable numbers. Their impression was that his elk' ship was a wonderfully fine buck that had es caped from the grounds of some unknown gentleman. In the course of the morning the animal was brought at bay by the dogs, after having croseed over (jvam) the eastern branch of the Potomac, from the Prince George's county. Md., side, and was shot, we regr? t to write, by the four or five hunters who were in at the death. A hind-quarter weighed, when dressed, *2 pounds ! A pretty animal that? as large as a fair sized horse?to be hunted by grown up men. for a buck, because it was graced with horns! Relief.?We learn that Trinity Church (Protestant Episcopal) of this city, has con tributed $116 for the relief of the Norfolk and Portsmouth yellow fever sufferers. Th^ employees of the Pension office have contributed Slrtl 50 and deposited the iame With Chubb Brothers for transmission. We are glad to learn that the committees appointed last night by the Merchants' Ex change for collecting funds for the Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers, have commenced their benevolent work, and are meeting with good success. Long Walk after a Short Ridb.?A young gentleman, who resides a short distance in the country, being desirous of seeing the perform ances at tho circus, ordered fcis horse to be hitched to a wagon, an l in [company with a young lady came to the city. * After the 44 last act, he went to look fjr his vehicle, but it was among the missing. The pair started for home, after deciding that it would be folly to " wait for the wagon." Four miles is a short drive, but a long walk in a desolate country. Fast Drinking.? In a conversation la*t night, a gentleman stated that a person named had been in the habit of drinking prodigious quantities of brandy day after day during six months; and he had seen him drink " twenty glasses before breakfast." We thought tuis went a little ahead of the lager beer man. for the beer u.an died, and the performer of this astonishiig fe_t is still alive. Coli kbia Hosb Company.?At a meeting of the Columbia H->se Company. No. 2. held on the 23d of August, the following officers were c.ected : President, F McDermott; Vice Presi dent, (who also acta as captain of the hose.) H. C. Purdy; Secretary. L. Lunelle ; Treasurer, John Purdy, sr.; First Assistant, Chas. Rob inson; ?Second Assistant, Thomas Dowell. The Campbell Mis.steels, after completing a successful series of concerts and comic per formances in Washington, are going to amuse our neighbors of Alexandria, Va , this and to morrow evening We bespeak for them the patronage of that public, confident that their efforts to please wiil be, jn a high degree, ?uo cessful. The Boone Club gave their second grand soiree at the Spriog Gardens yesterday even ing. To the music of Scott's brass and string band the large and happy company amused themselves with dancing Refreshments and supper were furnished by an expcricnocd ca terer, and mirth ruled the hour. Joe Pkntland's Trocpe opened for exhibi tion in Centre Market square last night, and their extensive pavilion was full of delighted visitors. The performances were excellent and much applauded. They will oontinue their performances to-day and to-morrow, perform ing in the afternoon and night. Mammoth Canteloupe.?Mr Butts exhibi ted in the Northern Liberties Market, this mor r.ing, a cantcloupe weighing thirty and a half poundsli attra:te<i general attention; for well it might. It was a whopper. [COMMl'NICATED. The Filtht Fever Breeding Streets ? Thanks, many thanks to you, Mr. Editor, for Jrour kind attention to the welfaro of your fel ow citizens. I trust y?;u will be rewarded in some substantial iraaner for sounding the tocsin in the ears ot our slumbering sity au thorities I havo been a resident of the me tropolis many yean, and I have nerer known our city to be m so filthy and neglected a con dition. Should the breath of the pestilence te wafted to us from the afflicted towns of Nor folk and Portsmouth, which may God forbid, it will find ample sympathy in the polluted at mosphere of the metropolis. In pawing down I street, near Sixteenth, a few steps from the ros-denco of the Secretarv of State, I counted etght piles of filth, which had been thrown up from the gutter of a grocery store, and left basking in the sun for nearly or quite a week. While all the cities in the Union are taking the necessary precautionary measure* to se cure the health ef the people, ours seems to be left to its own destiny. Our oity authorities may have very kind intentions towards their constituents, but their executive abilities, in this department of duty, ara certainly very feeble t Cms. Augufc* 30 18?S. ?
