EVENING STAR LOCAL ENTSLLIGENCE. Th? Portsmouth a*i> Norfolk ftiprRR*R?. At a meeting held in Hampton. Elisabeth city eounty. V*-, on the 3d instant, com pored of cititcns of town and county, and of Noifolk nnd Portsmouth, temporarily sojourning in Hampton, the following nam?d gentlemen were appointed a committee to proceed to Washington and make known to the President the objects and desires of the meeting : Rev' J. C. McCabe, of Hampton; Hon. C. W. Newton, of Norfolk; P. F Ferguson, Esq., of Norfolk; Dr. R. G. Banks, of Hampton; Capt. R B. Wright, of Norfolk; W. H Peters, Esq , of Portsmouth; Capt. Jas. Hicks, of Nor folk; R. A. Worrell, Esq.. of do.; Dr P P Clements, of do.; Dr. J. J. Simpkins. of do.; A. W. Jones, Esq . of Hampton; Hon. F. Mal lory, of Norfolk; Wm. C Bcnthall, Esq . of do.; Col. Chas. K Mallory, of Hampton; Hon. Joseph Segar, of do.; Hon. W. N. McKinnoy, of Norfolk; C W. Grandy, Esq., do. This committee reached Washington yeater day morning, and immediately sought an in terview with the President, which was grn. t- 1 Without delay; and were introduced hy Dr. MjmkiQs. The Rev. John C. McCabe, of jfcpton, chairman of the Committee, ad Vwd the President as follows : ?'We appear before you, sir, as the representa tives of a sorrowing, suffering, disease-stricken, and death-smitten people, a committee ap pointed at a meeting held in the town of 11 ampton on yesterday, composed of a number of the citisens of No4folk, Portsmouth, and Hampton, to wait upon the President of the United States, and the appropriate Heads of Departments, to ask that relief which the aw ful exigencies of tho case require, and which the resolutions we now submit, most respect fully ask. As chairman of that committee, I am somewhit anticipated in my remarks by the appalling facts which must each day reach tha ear* of your Excellency, as borne upon the winze of the telegraph or through the medium of the public prints; and yet, sir, startling and terrible as are each dav's official reports from Norfolk and Portsmouth of the progress of the yellow fever in tho:e cities, tfcey fall far and fearfully short of the awful reality. Nor folk and Portsmouth pre now, sir, but little more than vast charncl houses, and their un buried lead are, percl ?nce, at this moment, attracting the keen sci it of the ravening vul tures Thousands of t le people of those de voted cities, have fid, panic stricken ; and, would to God, the rr-t had flowa. Had it been so, sir. we would have been spared the recital of this tale of woe, and yon Excellency the pain of listening to a siory whoso burthen ii desolation and death. Mr. President, phy sicians are falling at the;r pos- i; nurses are dying at bedside? ; and the minister ? of the Cross of Christ. a5 they 3tand at the couehr* ot the sick and dying, are struck down ? ? Dumb and shivering ' ? Business is almost cntiiely suspended iu loth cities. The city of Norfolk hs? but a nominal government, and nearly every private * dwelling is converted into a mort house, and from almost every chamber comes out a wail? for death is there. The remaining population ?f these ;eemine?y doomed cities are too feeble and too few to give efficient help to tho sick ard the suffering; and ere long un'e>? Gcd stay the de5troycr. and the strong ai m of man in power, be stre :hed forth in their bchali, the total depopulation of those pi a e?, by death, must be the result, and the Genius oi Desolation will sit in ghastly and gloomy tri umph, sole master of their ports and marts The resolutions which we herewith present, will t > some extent explain, what it i' vre de sire. and we submit them, in a just a*vl abi ding confidence, that a' a iufcn. and as the Chi f Magistrate of the couutry. ia the welfare of every section whereof we believe you lVeJ an interest, you wPI sugg^t ard afford that relief which must be immediate to be avail Sole." To which the President responded in a bricl but feeling manner. lie expre^ed the mo . heartfelt sympathy for the unfoitunate suf feiers in Norfolk and Portsmouth, seated that the subjc:t hal cau?cd him much anxious con sideration. and induct d him to ^ shorten his visit to Virginia, s^ni ha3tcn his return to Washington, indulging the hoys that some m?le of relief might be afforded by the inter vention of the Federal Government; and con clc led by Rearing the committee tuat he would co-operat2 with them in any legitimate action that might he determined upon. The President then entered in o an unr; - rerved convention with the members of the committee, in which tho practicability c various plans wa? discussed. The committee retired with an invitation from the President to call at 8 o'clock in the evening. The committee met the President at tho time appoint d, and were to have a final audieuce this morning at 10 o'clock, when he would be able to decide upon something definite. The committee waited on the President this morning; for an account of which see our ' Washington News column*. They then took their leave, impressed with the t'aet that the failure of their mission, *o far as the obtaining cf Old Point was concerned, was not owing to an indisposition on the part of the President to do all that could bo d >ne by him to relievo the distressed of the citizens of Port-mouth. Previous to the committee leaving the Pres idential Mansion, the Preiident pla ;cd in their hands the sum of ?375, being a tcsond contri bution from him-elf and the members of his Cabinet for the relief of tho sick and suffering; and stated that b;s piivata pur.3 was open at all times for the relief of the distres ed. The President alt-o a -urcd tho committeo tint the Washington Navy Yard would be thrown open to all the workmen who are now herefr-m Norfolk and Portsmouth who aie desirous of employment?that is, in thoce de partment* of tne yard where work can be sound for them There are about thirty berCj who will be benefited by this order. Th? Fc*beal or Jroox Crasch took place yesterday afternoon, from bis late residence on Capitol Hill. A large number of citixons was in attendance on the exercises, including the bench and the bar of the several courts, the President of the United States, Hon. Caleb Cashing the Attorney General, and the Hon. Erastus Brooks, a son-in-Kw of the deceased. The address uf the Rev. William Furnace, of the Unitarian church, Philadelphia, was ap propriate, eloquent, and impressive. Tne following named gentleman aoted as pall-bearers : Messrs. Jamc3 Adams, R. C. Weightman, R. S.Coxe, James M Carlisle, William Rodin, and John Marbury. Ou the conclusion of the funeral services, many of the persons present approachcd to take a parting look at the remains of the pure and upright judge ; and we were thus privileged among the number. As in life the counte nance of the deceased was serene, irradiated with intelligence and benevolence, so in death he lay as if in peaceful slumber?no distortion of the nerves; no rcpulsiveness such as fre auently induces the spectator to hurry from le scene. Conscious of an honorable, virtu ous life, ike grave had. doubtless, no terrors for him; and hence with calmness he sunk into the eternal rest Mr Anthony Buchly, the undertaker, su perintended the funeral, in his usually polite out prompt manner, having made careful prc Iarations for that duty. The coffin, it may ere be observed, is maht?gtny, covered with fice black cloth, the studs and handles, of sil ver. The breastplate, of the same material, bore the inscription: " William Cranch ; born July 17, 176V; died September 1, lftSa.'' The interior of the coffin was neatly lined with folds of white satin. The funeral cortege was large, and the re mains vvru cvnveyed to -he Congressional Cemetery, where they were deposited in the family vault. Aid rou the SnrrERaas?The amount pa!? in last night by committees recently appointed by tho Merchants' Exchange is $1,S?2 50. The First Ward ha* not yet been beard from, and about five collectors from the other wards have to report. It is expected that at lea?t SI,600 will be raised, through the agency of these committees, for the relief of th?; sufferers of Norfolk and Portsmouth. Messrs S Bacon, William Todd, and Wm. F. Bayly, were ap pointed a committee to take char.^o of the money, and attend to its final disbursement bet wee a those cities. All tk~. tueiuhar* of tbe committee.* who have not yet given an account ^>f thfir lab rs are requested to rej>ort to .iny Vi?c vf the above ttajucd geutltfuca. " ; ?

Scrofula. Wlthont being disposed or deeming It necessary to go into the particulars of the case, I can say th^t the astonishing results that have been pro duced by the use or that medicine on a member or uiy own family, and under my own observation and superintendence, alter the skill of the best physicians had been exhausted and all the usual remedies had failed, fully justify me in recom mending its use to nil who may be suffering from that dreadful inalady. I do not mean to say that It is adapted to all constitutions, or that it will afford the same relief in aii cases; for, of course, I can know nothing about that?but of what I have seen of the effects, I would not hesitate to use it, in any and every cose of Scrofula, with persons for whom l felt an interest, or over whom I could exercise Influence or control. Respectfully, yours, Jno. M. Botts. iLT The Greatest Medical Discevery t( the age Is A YKR'S CATHARTIC PILLS. They don't help complaints, but they cure them One Box has cured Dyspepsia Three boxes have cured the wor*t cases of Scrof via. Two boxes have cured Erysipelas. One box always cures the Jaundice. Three hexes are sure to cleanse the system from Boils?often less than one does it. Two boxes have completely cured the worst of ulcers on the legs. tSmall doses seldom fail to cure the Piles. One dotoe cures the headache arising from afoul stomach. Strong doses often repeated expel every worm froiu the body. They should be given to children who are always, more or lea* afflicted with this scourge. As a gentle Physic they have no equal. One box curea derangement of the liver. Haifa bex cures a cold. They purify the blood, and thus strike at the foundation of every disease. As a Dinner Pill there is not an equal in the world. They are purely vegetable and can do no harm, but do accomplish an unaccountable amount ef good. F-ennred by DR J . C.
