EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE Rinsf or tub Norfolk ard Portsmouth bcrrtRKRS.?We think it it safe to state that between five an-1 six thousand dollars, per haps fuliy the last named suiu, hare been sub scribed in Washington for that humane pur pose. Although this may be regarded by s?-roe pers< ns as small, we believe it is as large a3, tf not larger than, that thus far contributed bv any other city, in proportion to populatioo. More than three fourtns of this amount have been voluntarily tendered, while the remain der has been collected through responsibly ap pointed ward committees, who, we know, have not eallcd u?on our citizens at large, at their private residences. Many persons would read ily contribute a portion of their substance to whomsoever, properly accredited, would pre sent himself. We doubt not that ten thousand doM;m could be made to form the aggregate amount of subscriptions, in the course of a week. We repeat, the city has not been thoroughly caoviwwd; as it should have been erenow. "But it is not t<?o late to commence that work, so imperatively demanded by tho distressing circumstances which surround the sufferer* in the fever-infected districts. Our news columns of to-day oontaiu additional particulars?sickening details?of the dreadful ravages of the disease. No one can read them without having hia sympathies intensely ex cited. and his feelings of generosity "fully aroused. There are more than fifty churches in our city; the ministers of which, if they would all go to work, could collect, within three days, at least a thousand dollars, in the aggregate. Within a period of that many weeks, more than that amount has frequently been raised to build a church for the saving of souls. And is it not reasonable to suppose that as much cmld be collected to save humtnlife, in the manner we sngeest ? Aid is needed l?ow?at onct ' The cost of providing food, and the necessary attendance and e&re of the sick, and otherwise distressed, involves an expense of at least tw? thousand dollars a day in Norfolk and Portsmouth. Bence the necessity of renewed, systematic ac tion on the part of not only our own, but citi zens of other localities. Public Soiiools?Tho Trustees met last evening- Present?Dr. C'has. W. Davi*. chair man; Messrs. Dickinson, Bacon, Polk, McKim, Peters. AtLee. Knight. And Pearson. Mr. Farley was elected teacher of male pri mary school, fourth district, vice J. Smith Thomson promoted. Much of tho time of the meeting wa.? occu pied in the consideration of a draft of the an nual report, and various suggestions were made in regard to it, and it was then recom mitted. The following are tho rules adopted in re gard to school hours : " T'ue morning session of tho public schools thill commence at Hi o'clock a. n., ard close at 12 m., except during the months of Novem ber. December. January, and February, when the session shall commence at 9 a. ia. " The afternoon session shall commence at li o'clock an J cl?>se at 4 J p. m.. except during the months of November. December. January and February, when tlie session shall be closcd at 3) p. m. '? A recess of ten minutes may be allowed each session." The secretary was requested to inform the teachers that it would be expected that the rules in regard to hours and text books would be carefully observed by them in all respects; otherwise it w^uld furnish cause for immediate removal. A report was received from Mr. Pearson in relation to the late examination of applicants for teachersnips : which, on motion of Mr. At Lee was accepted. Bills for rent and salaries were ordered to I o raid by the trta-u or when approved by one Trustee. On motion of Mr. Pearson, it was resolved that the teachers shall incur no bills for the care of their respective school re-ems between the months of May and October inclusive; also that the secretary should provide each school with a Worcester's Dictionary. On motion of Mr. AtLee, it was resolved that no transfers of pupils shall be mcde dur ing the last six months of the school year. The Buard then adjourned till Wednesday next. ??? Thb Elk Burt again ?We arc informed by Mr Clark Mills that his elk. killed so wantonly a few days riuce by hunters, ac explained in tho Star, had not been absent fv>r a length of time, as represented tou?. near where the affair took place, but was on his premises and before his doer as usual on the evening before the oc currence : and further, that nu the animal's neck was a leather collar three inches broad, that could be seen almost as far as the animal itself. These facts adds to the atrooity and wantoness of the act. The elk was brought here at a heavy ex pose by Mr. Mills to serve a3 a model for a portion of a national statue he is preparing to execute. The loss t?< him is very great, and we take it for granted that he will prosecute those concerned in bringing it (the loss) upon him. should they be worth a snit at law. A*?i dote.?We recollect an anecdote of the late Rev. Spencer 11. Cone, (the most dis tinguished Baptist clergyman of the dny who recently died in New \ork) which amused us many years ago. and may now be repeated. It is"well known that he wa* a player of ju venile tragedy before he became a minister of the gospel. Seeing a foiiner theatrical friend, the veteran wag and comedian, ''Old Jeffer son.'' at chureh, while he was preaching, shortly after he took holy orders, and on the next day, meeting the latters little daughter. J afterward* Mr#. Anderson, long an actrcw of am*,) he inquired wl it her father said of bis ? ?rmon. The child at ;wered. naivedy enough, *' Why, Mr. Cone, Pa says that when yvti played you preached, but now y<,u preach, you play." Skrii>C8C'hab6i:.?ThismrmingMr C. Leh man was arrested by officer llaady, and taken to the guard-Louse, where ho was accused of stealing chickens from a butcher's stall ia the Centre market. At the examination of the witnesses, the evidence was considered suffi cient to justify Captain birch in holding Mr. Lehman to security fur court. Tho prisoner has always sustained an excellent character far honesty, and feels that this ia a severe blight upen his good name. SninAT Law.?The police officers havo been at wurk again enforcing the city law against selling intoxicating liquors on Sunday. The fine for this off ice is not less than ten dol lars. It can also be punished by the criminal court, and #ome of the efhoers threaten that if the practice is not stopped, th?-y will carry the cases to that tribunal Prbtab atioss.?Notwithstanding there are to many vi.-ilors in Washington, nearly all the hotels are un lcrgoing repairs anl refitting for the approaching season. Workmen are very busy in order to be ready at the preper time. From these preparations wo judge tnere will be Accommodations fur all who may visit Washington. At present mo.-t of the hotels ?re entertaining many strangers, many of whom intend to remain m.t.l after the openi: g of Congress Mb. Robrbt J.

He sustained a compound fracture of the right leg, and at last accounts was doing well. Fibk ard Costs.?John Fanth was accused, before Justice Bates this morning, of violating the Sunday law, by selling liauor to various persons, lie asked a trial, ana when the wit nesses were produced, there wad positive proof of the act. lie admitted the truth of the state ments, and was ordered to pay tho fine and cost*. ?? Thb Certbb Mannar was well supplied wi'h meats, vegetables, and orchard fruits this morning The prices were about the samo as at our last quotations. It oontinues to be a matter of regret that the country people arc tot provided with suitable accommodations. Thb Cori bit, yesterday afternoon, by the Marine Band on the Capitol grounds, was but thinly attended, as compared with former oc casions. The teaaou for outdoor concerts is jfccajrlj over M\rketkrs. every night Wore market day, are,much troubled by gang' of worthies! men arid boys, * ho lounge about their stands, and seek every opportunity to pilfer their fruit, vegetable*, chickens, and oven ??>m?tim?s their money. Some more efficient protection than as at present provided should be afforded these worthy people, who, after coming a long dU tance, are prevented from taking the hour's rest they so much need before commencing the busy duties of the day.

Georgetown, Sept. 6. 1855. Up to the time of closing this letter, our elec tion is moving on very quietly. Mr. Jas. God dard was, last night, nominated by the Know Nothing?, instead of Mr. Godey, whom it was supposed would be tho candidate. Mr. God dard is one of our most enterprising mechan ics, and would doubtless make a very excel lent member; but from present indications we think he will be completely overwhelmed, and totally routed by the superiority (in point of numbers) of the English or civil and religious forces As we remarked, on a former occa sion. the nnti-Kr.ow Nothings are wide awake, tnoroughly aroused, and quite sanguine of electing their candidate (Mr. English) by a decided majority. Capt. Brown and R. P. Dodge, Esq., arc getting the timber in place for tho construction of the wharves which they intend to use as a coal depot. The work will probably be com pleted by tho early part of the ensuing spring, when the company which ha* leased them will commence operations in good earnest. A.
