EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY; MONDAY AFTERN?OPI ieptrmber 3. S7IEIT OT THE MOBNING PEESS. The Inttlligenrer, discoursing upon what it Characterises as " The Raven Cry," says: "Many ;of th? Northern newspapers that come to rs contain carl fully-selected and well di-pLycd quotations from the speeches and wiUirgs of over-sanguine politicians in the i$ on hi, declaratory of the fact that the Fede ral U nion ciay, shall, or will be destroyed at an early day. or, indeed, at the very first op ortune moment. By a singular coincidence many Southern newspapers present to our no tice iu like manner the declarations, potential and indicative, of certain politicians of the NortA to the same effect. We trust that the millions of our countrymen whom the sombre rdictions of these same prophets could not times past affcct will not now yield their faith thr >ugh their fears, to the wail of the biru of evil omen. ,. , '? There has never been a time sinee the birth of our government in which more general pros perity existed than at present, nor a time lu which the political and diplomatic affairs of the nation wero more manifestly susceptible ?f peaceful and mutually advantageous ar rangement. That thero is contention between the North and the South, is very true. But when wa? there not contention between the JS'ortn and the South ? That each party men aces the other with angry threatening*, is true. But when has cither party entirely refrained from such menaces? That there are prescrip tive issues before the National Legislature, in relation to the organization of Territories and the reception of States and Territories into the Union, is also true. But when have such is sues cot been in prospect?" The Union is delighted with the resolutions drawn up by its senior editor, Judge A. 0. P. Nicholson, and adopted at a Democratic meet ing in Columbia, Tcnc. They are, doubtless, excellent things in their way ; but, between the public and oursclf, we confess to a grow ing want of respect for party piatforms adopted at any political meeting.- We have hardly ever known an occasion wherein they could bo violated to the temporary advantage of any one, in which they have not been thrown aside as 44 good-enough Morgans" only for the cir cum.tances in which they were so solemnly fworu to. The Union also notices tl.e fact t>-at tho recent New York Know Nothing State c- nvcation repudiated the already celebrated twelfth section of 4' the Philadelphia plat form, ' and that the ex-Revs. C. Edwards Lester and C. C. Bnrr?-pur nolile fratri !? were the bright particular stars of the enter t^inmect. WASHINGTON NEWS AND Q08SIP. The Farmers.?We question much whether the growers of produce?vegetables, fruits, Ac.?for the Washington markets will realize c.uch m re money during this year, of unex ampled abundance, than in the last, of unex ampled scarcity and failure of such crops. Their profit?increased profit?of the season is to result almist altogether in what their iibnndaDec at home may enable them to save of money otherwse to be paid out for the support i>f their families, and in the muoh greater ac -cumulation of domostic fertilisers resultingfrvm the refuse of their greater abundance of things T*'s:d. ^ eiy few vegetables and fruits are now worth in Washington more than the cost of Lrmgiag them to market. Cabbages, such as svld readily Ia*t year at frcm twelvo and a half ?u twenty-five cents per head, now sell slowly at from two t? four cents per head ; tomatoes will rot bring an average of twelve and a ha.1! ccnts per biuhel to the grower; peach.s not more tkaa tweotjr-five cent.- per bushel; aver age cantaloupe# from two to three cents each, and watermelons from six to eight cents each; cikra finds no sale, nor do we find that other articles, usually raised on market garden farm?, command prices more likely to stimu late the grower to send marketer and team a dozen miles in the hope of realising anything in th:s city as the result (in money) of his sea son's labor and investment of capital. We Lave piactical knowledge of the subject knowing, to our cost, the truth of what we say above. The parties favored through this tu perabundanee of Nature's bounty, are the city con cmers and the retailers who buy from first hands. Theirs, and theirs only, is the p-rent. This state of things enables families ^disp-.sed to live as they should for health's ?ake at this season of the year, pretty much on fiuits and vegetables,) greatly to economize their household expenses, and in that way it raav benefit a vciy large class of our fellow c:..i.ess of ^ a hingtcn ; though we fear that a (American) want of system in fur bishing the table must result in the loss ol this jrreat advantage on the part of thousand* who ahou'.d avail themselves of it. Gr-fc* Cry and Little Wool.?We place no colMmco whatever in the shouting of the Erclieh orcr their pretended victory at Swea" berg. V>"c recollect that when they sacked the undefended city of Ksrtch, under Sir George Brown, disgracing the character of civilised w&rfaru by their atrocities then and there committed, they set up just such another cry of tiiumph, as a precursor to their disas trous and overwhelming defeat before Sebas topul, under the same Sir tieorge Br,wn, a week afUrwnrds. In this case, their pretence of having actually accomplished something at Sweaborg is evidently hollow and false. Swea borg is merely a cluster of little islands, on which mo defences of the up;>roachos to llel fcingfvrs are erected, llelaingfors is the city, which is strongly fortified, and contains the great Russian navy-yard and depot ia that quarter. Sweaborg is a cluster of littio and unin;pe>rtant suburban villages on little islands, in which there could have been no other tlov err.iaent property than the armament and ammunition for the fortifications to defend the approaches k> the city to which we refer above These villages and their contents were dt. iirvyed by the British fleet, firing fire-works (r^cketr, shell*. Ac.,) fr?m a distance of three miles, and, of course. frim without the range even of the guns of the Sweaborg works, with in the cover of which nothing appears to have bee n harmed. It striken us tha' all tho blatherskiting over this Swsaborg affair amounts simply to an tffort to give eclat to Victoria's visit to Napo leon?to nothing more whatever. They un derstand humbug on that side of the A'lvnio to a charm. Barnum himself is not a " priming'' to them. Dirty Paws.?Among the distinctive habits of too many of the people of the Gnited States one that is ?pt to mark an American abroad quickly to the eye of an inhabitant of the Old World-is the vulgarity ot fingering gems of sculpture and paintings. Some Americans are not content with viewing a piece of art? with feasting their eyes upon a master-piece? but they must fe*l it with their finger*. One of this class has cot satisfied himself of its uieiits until, if it is a bust, he has stained the marble with the filth of his greasy paws or dirtier kids. If a painting, he will use the muddy end of his umbrella to illu Urate its points. Indeed, ladies will, at time?, take the parasol wet from their lips, ani rub it thought lessly over a cktf d?oetirre that has cost years of genius and labor. Those finely executed marble heads of Columbus, Americus, and Lamartino, in the President's bouse, have been thus shamofully vandalized by dirty fingered vulgarians. But what's the use of wasting ink! This is a free country; and every citizen, of the class to which wc refer: will eDjoy this peculiar American luxury of rubbing his fingers over tho chin and nose of a parian marble bust, upon which not evon the dust of a parlor Ought to be allowed to settle. The Death of Mr?. Commodore Joseph ?mitfl.?The demise of thia estimable lady, so '"Dg a resident of this city, shortly after the dreadful railroad catastrophe in which she was a sufferer to the extent of being bruised and shocked by the concussion, was not unex pected to her large circle of friends here, who knew that the condition of her health was not such as to justify the hope that she could sur vive the excitement and derangement of the nerve us system consequent upon being in a car wherein many of the passengers were killed and others mangled. She diel iu the Naval Hospital in Philadelphia, on Saturday, having been taken to the rcsideccc of its com mander, a family friend, when able to leave Burlington. Her remains wero taken to Oak Hill Cemetery this morning, followed by a large concourse of mourting friends, who previously attended the funeral services over her remains at St. John's Church. The Recent Catastrophe.?The following suggestions, for which wc are indebted to a friend, possess great force, and should be pon dered over by all interested ii* the manage ment of railroads : The papers are censuring the Camden and Am boy Railroad Company lor not having pro vided a double track. It is justeersure upon u road connecting tho two greatest cities ot' the continent, aud carrying the great stream oi tr*ve.l between the North and South. This particular accident might have been avoided had there hive been u double track at this point, bul the only, security against these- accidents at cross-roads is an inflexible rule that the railro.'vd crossing shall always b?; over or under a bridge. The money to be paid by this railroad company in damages to its property aud to the sulierers, or their heirs, would euffic3 to raise every road which crosses abo.e, or sink it belww the level of the rail road. In Franae, no railroad is allowed to cross a country road at the same level. Necessity compels canals to make this arrangement. ll a wise regard for thoir otii interests, and for Uie safety of their passengers, will not induce ; ail roads t# adopt the same means of safety, let the States or CoLgress enforco it by legis lation, and for this purpose let the public prcs> take the matter in hand, and c ill for legisla tion to secure our iiv?^ by woll-fenucd road and .brilge crossings. Then there will be un end to the mnning over of cattle ai d wagons. September 1, 1655. M. C M. Dead.?Our fellow-citizens, though they will not be surprised to hear of tho death of the late venerable Win. Cranch, Chief Ju lgo of th< Circuit Court, ar.d Judge of the District Coutt for tho District of Columbia, will with cntiie unanimity mourn him a- a great, learned, and good man departed. Weqnostioa whether, take him all in all, he had a superior on the bench in tbis country while in the possession of all hU faculties, though for a short time past extreme old age had incapacitated him froi. the dis charge of the duties of his Judgeships. No man ever possessed more of the contdencc of hi. fellow-citizens one and all; having been, foi half a century and more, looked up to in the District of Columbia as the very embodiment of legal learning, practical senso, and stein integrity of purpose. For interesting partic ulars concerning thi? Sid event, see thQ Star's local column?. The Return of the President, which took place on Saturday, after we went to press, has rreatly enlivened the politicians in this city, who had bccome shockingly dull during his short absence. There are several important posts to be filled, none of which are of more interest to our district readers than that made vacant by the death of the late venerable Chief Justice of the U. S. Court for the Dis trict of Columbia. As is very natural, this community feel intense intore^t in that partic ular appointment. We doubt not, the Presi dent will select some gentleman of well estab lished personal and judicial character, tho roughly competent in all respects not only to command the confidence of the citizens of the District, without distinction of party, but to administer the law hero as well a# it h ad ministered in any State of the American Union. Public lands Reserved for Railroads, &c. Land* which have been reserved to the United States in acts granting lands to States for rail road improvements, where the minimum was more than $1 2a per acre at the date of the passago of the graduation act of 4tu August. 1864, are not subject to the operation of said act. It has, however, been held by the 6en eral Land Oflice, that, where entries of said lands have been permittsd at local land offi ses, at the graduated prices, in virtue of valid pre emption claims under the act of 27th March, 1854, the said entries may be confirmed upon tho claimants making the additional payments to the receiver of public moneys required to perfect the same at $1 25 per a:rc. An Important Removal and Appointment. We understand that the President removed, se me days ago, Major Richard P. Hammond, Collector of the Port of San Francisco, and ap pointed the Hon. Milton S. Latham, a mem ber of the last House of Representatives, in his stead. Mr Latham, by-the-by, came within eight votes of obtaining the nomination for Governor by the last California Democratic State Convention. The cause of this changc has not yet been made known. We take it for granted that it could not have been political, as Major H. was himself an appointee of the present Administration. Temporary Clerks Appointed.?Mr. S. G. Jamieson ufS. C., was appointed on tha 1st of September, and Mr. John C. Morrison, of Ala., on the 81 of September, to temporary (M,2U0 per annum) clerkships in the Pension bureau. Appointed.?The President has appointed B Squire Cottrell, Esq., United States Com mercial Agent at San Juan, Nicaragau, vice Joseph W. Fubens, removed. J[J?

There is no abatement in the number of r ises, of yellow fever either in Norfolk or !*ortfmon?h, and the disease appears to be on ' io The number of deaths reported ? not so great as for the corresponding peiiod ? f the week previous, though tho private ac >unta represent them as much greater, and mplain that all are not reported. The following deaths have occurred since ir last report: Mrs. Eliza Cunningham, Wm. Ballance, Irs. Murphy, Nathaniel Hill, Mrs. King. Mrs. > Gayle, J. Lichenstein, Dr. Thomas Consta e, Mr. Moore, Joseph Tatem, Miss ernith, t u of Wm. A. Woodward, Mrs. Captain c:arke, John Andrews, Mrs. L. Stolt, Miss otser, servant of L.

Mr. Dibrcll, R. R. Dove, Mr. Ferrett, 'ua. Pannell. The number of now eases daily is truly ' arming, a id it is stated there are now twelve < indred cases in Norfolk ! The weather appears to favor the progress f tho epidcmic. During the night a cold, 'iarp wind sweeps over the city; this is suc ?tded in the morning by a dense, dry. sultry ''mnsphere, which is most oppressive to the elings The sun, too, is very hot during the vy, adding not a little to the general uuilats* ' which the citizens complain. The showers vliioh occasionally visit them appear freighted ith mischief, as the disease always assumes )w violence after their occurrencc. The superintendent of the Richmond and otcrsburg railroad has written to Norfolk " ad Portsmouth, offering free passage in the reamer Augusta to all persons who may wish > leave those afflicted cities, and whose lim ?'ed means have prevented their doing so hcre i >fore. In Portsmouth, if any change has taken lace in the disease sinco our last account, it is : r the worse. A letter states the disease has assumed a ? tore malignant character, the patients dying l a few hours after the disease makes its ap ; aarance. There will be fewer new cases hero, as the number how undor treatment is . bout one thousand, and thero are few left v ho have not had it. The following is the list of deaths which ive occurred in Portsmouth since the 27th of August, published in the Transcript of Friday: Aug. 28th ?James Hanrah?n. Mrs. Burhan, 'rp.

Doctor School field is out and doing service; Mrs. School field, who has been ill, is now doing >vell, and ii convalescent. Dr. Trugicn's death creates unu;ual regret a' Port ;mouth. He was a young physician of brilliant promise. His funeral took place ..t 'he Presbyterian church, the Rev. Mr Handy i fficiating. Kev. Vernon Eskrid^c, ehaplain in the U. Navy, is said to be doing efficient scrvice in Portsmouth. Private letters from Portsmouth speak high ly of tho efficient services rendered by Mr. Kobert Copeland, who left this city some tin-e since to assist in nursing the sick. So success ful has he been with the cases committed to hs charge, that he is now styled "Doctor, and his services are much in demand in New town, where he is laboring. Dr. \ an Patten, of this city, has signified his intention of giving his receipts for extract i ig teeth to the amount of 520 to tho Norfolk sufferers. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. G*obgbtow?, Sept. 3. 1855. The serious loss our city ha3 sustained in the premature death of our excellent fellow-citi zjn, Capt. m. M. Boyce, and his amiable wife and daughter, continues to be the chief t >pic of conversation among all classes of our :.tizcns, and every one seems to deplore deep ly their untimely and appallii.g fate. The Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers also have a large lhareof the sympathies of ?>ur comrnu ni y, and many a sincere prayer ascends to Heaven daily from honest, devoted, christian hearts that tho plague, which has so severely ? iHicted the people of tho^e places, may bo staid. A collection was taken up yesterday in the Dumbarton street Methodist church to aid them ; tho amount wo have not as yet learned. I p to Saturday the collections in our city had r *acned at least $1,000. Too much praise can n t be awarded Messrs. W. H. Edes, A. II. Piekrell, and others, for their efforts to secure ai l in behalf of their suffering fellow country men. Wo heard a responsible individual say on ? aturday that his bid for doing the guttering on a certain street in our city was one hundred per cent, leas per yard, and for paving the loot ways three and a half cents per yard less, than that of individual who obtained tho con tract. If this statement bo true?and wo have no reason to doubt it?thcro must be a -crow loose somewhere. Tho election to fill the vacancy in the George town Board of Common Council wiil be hold 0 i Thursday, the 6th inst. This election will, iuubtlcss, be much more exciting thau the l:>at, and will, more than likely, bring out the ontiro strength of the town. Matter? of vital importance depend upon the result. We there fore suppose that no voter who teela a deep in t rest in our future prosperity as a cominun n ty will feel at liberty to 8uffer it to go by le 1 iult. The general impression is, that W. H. Gcdepr will lie the candidate of the Know Nothings, and Henry King the candidate of the anties. At the sale of sugars bv E. S. Wright, on I rulay, at the wharf of F. A A. H.

The attendance wa? large and the bidding spirited. The offerings of beef cattle at Drovers' Rest Inst week amounted to over 300 head, nearly all of which were taken at S3 37JaS4.37i on the hoof, equal to 56.75aSS.75 net?a decline <>f 2ic. from the previous week's prices. Old sheep 52 50aS3.50 per head, a decline of 50o. i or head from tho previous week's prices. Limbs, S1.75aS3 per head. Our flour market this morning is unsettled a id drooping. Up to the present time sales h tve been confined nearly entirely to the man u a, ture of our City Mills?whioh, owing to tie Quality, is generally held something above s andard prices. This, however, declined du iag the last week from 37$ to 50 cents per bar rel. And the general impression among our leading dealers is, that as soon as navigation noon our canal is fully resumed, (which will litely occur some time this week,) and it (lour) begins to arrive in anything like large quantities, that prices will come down imme iliatel v to $8 if not lower. Extra brands was offered on Saturday at $8 50, but found no purchaser Held nominally at $8 37i a $8 50. Wheat als* declined towards the close of the week about ten cents per bushel.
