EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tat Pcbli* Mketisg, <>n Saturday ?ftjH* at the City Hal!, wa* organiied by call iDK the Mayor of Wanhiujjton to the Chair, ana the appointment of Colonel W. F. Young . oc wThJ Rer. Mi. GurUy, by invitation, ad dre*sed the Throne ot <?race , when Mr D. Radcliffe. after a few forcible and ei-qucnt rowrk". .submitted the following resolution, which wa adopted : Resole f. That a permanent committee ol one wmii from each ward be appointed by the Chair for the purple of devising some t.ian for the relief of our suffering friend? at Norfolk and Portsmouth ; and that said com mittee have power to appoint sub-committecs to obtain contribution? in money and such other things of our fellow-citiiena a# may be necessary in the premises ; and that the who.c be under the management and direction of eiid permanent committee ; and that said per manent committee shall continue m existence as long as the occasion of its appointment -tiuil iThe chairman appointed the following-named ?>ntleman to compose the general committee: irst Ward, William T. Dove; Second Ward, J. H Riley; Third Ward, Daniel Ratchffe; Fourth Ward, Samuel Bacon; Fifth Ward, John P. Ingle; Sixth Ward, Robert Clarke; Seventh Ward, M. B. Randolph. On motion the Mayor was appointed chairman of th.s committee. Dr Joseph N Seboolfield having been called on to address the meeting, said that his wife and himself had just recovered from the yel low fever, and bad come to her home to re.-t for a few days to recruit their exhausted health and strength; but it was his purpose to return on Tuesday to share the labors and the sor rows of hi? afflicted friends awl neighbors in Portsmouth, lie bas:ily depicted sorrowing rcenes of distress and death to which he had been an eye-witness, and heartily approved the appointment of a j^rmanent relief com mittee ; sayir.g in conclusion, ?' the fuvor now appears to be abating, now that it lacks mate rial to operate upon ; but the end is not vet. Many who have left their homes, deceived by the apparent dcclinc in the disease, or driven into th?* jaws of death by the destitution that they may elsewhere experience, will prema turely return to Portsmouth during the ap proaching forty, or even sixty days and you may then lind mush for the hand of charity to perform" A subscription paper was passed round, and liberal contributions were mado. Alde rman J. P. Pepper offered the following resolution , Rt.uJcea, That it is the decided opinion of this meeting that an appropriation of ??, made by ths corporate authorities of this city out of the general fund, would meet the cor dial approbation of the citizens of this city for the relief of the sufferers at Norfolk and Ports mouth. Mi Jacob Gideon moved to li'.l the blank with the ?um of five thousand dollar.*, whijh was agreed to, and the resolution was adopted; acd. ou motion of Mr. Ratcliff?, a commistee of three was ordered to present the tnbjcct of the foregoing rce-jlutiuu to tUecity authorities, when the following gentlemen were appointed: Messrs. Pepper, Pleas.ints, aud Gideon. The Mayor remarked that he presumed the question would be asked: " Where is the mo ney to como from?" to which Mr. Jacob Gideon promptly responded, " Let tho Coun cils vote the money. and I II guarantee the funds shall be immediately forthcoming.' After further proceeding-", it was resolved that the pastors of the several churches of the city be requested to take up collations iu n?d of this cause; and that the ladie->ol the city be invited tj lend their aid in soliciting money and clothing.

The committee are requested to meet to morrow morning at the Mayor's office, at 12 o'clock. The aicciunt thus l'ar piid in is 512?, al though tthor sums have been subscribed. The IlAi kiik* ?This is the day sot apart by the hack men of Washington for their con tribution to the fund for the relief of the Nor folk and Portsmouth sufferers. The propo sition, voluntarily made by them, Is not only creditable to them as a class, but honorable to them as individuals, especially as they are now passing through the dullest season of the year. It is uot too late, we trust, to urge on our citizzus the luxury of an extra ride, or. if some people have not leisure for mch a recre ation. the handing of the fare to the men who have thus generously stepped forth to aid the afflicted. They will not legreta trifie toward e cause which eloquently appeals to the better feelings of tumauity. The hackmen, doubt less, want a large collection, and wish to set an example which shall be followed by persons engaged in similar bu.-iness throughout the country We may here say that iu no city of the Union is there a more orderly accommodating and honest ela*s of men employed in hacking, and it is with pride wo thus speak. There fore, ye considerate and generous soul, help on this day to gladden their hearts, while ye in directly contribute to a n>ble cause?that of humanity. R ailp-Oad Accii>k*t ?On Saturday evening, as the last train from Baltimore to Washington was passing H..n->ver ?witch, twelve miles from the first named city the engine struck a ball and threw it from the tra -k. Tho aaiina], stunned by the blow, immediately fell back between the wheels of the baggage cars, and removed it, with another car, entirely from the rails, which were partially torn up by tho force of the displaced wheels. It is due to state that as soon as the cows were perceived on the track, lupwardsof fifty ards ahead) the whistle was blowt and the reak immediately put down, but th i proxim ity of the train to the animals rende red a col lision inevitable. The first news which we received of the oc currence, wa? on Saturday evening, tho loco motive haviug arrived here alone, for a traiu of eats in which to transport the passengers to this eity. They arrived between twelve and one o'clock at night. It aff >rds us pleasure to state that no person was injured, although the conductor made a narrtw escape fiom the baggage car. A Rr.\vaed or Oxk Hi nuked Dollies, it will be seen by an advertisement in to-day's Star, will bo paid by Mr. A H. Maikland for each information as will enable him to find his father, who, a week ago, left his residence in this city, and since which time he has heard pothing concerning him Washington Light Infantry.?Thie steil lag old corps, which, for nearly twenty years, ha* upheld the honor and reputation of the city, and been the nucleus around which the existing regiment bo* been formed, have com pleted their arrangements for the celebration of the twentieth anniversary on the 11th inst., and it is expected will parade with full r;inks on that day to receive from the hands of Jonah D. Hoover, Esq., marshal of the Uniiod (States, a magnificent ting, the gift of a number of our public spirited citizens We have been afforded a view of this flag, and can assure our readers that it is a beauti ful one, exceeding in size any we have yet seen in our city It is a simple American flag, made of rich silk ; tbe polo is of lancewoo.l, surmounted by a sper, and decorated with silver. It is a worthy tribute to the liberality of the donors, as well as a high compliment to the company. The company is now in a flourishing condi tion, and it is hoped that, under the auspices of its present worthy commander, James Y. Davis, it will soon resume its station of being the " crack corps" of this city. This company have a very fine set of tents, which, we learn, they intend to offer to the refugees from Norfolk and Portsmouth, to be used by them in forming the village of canvas recently commenced near Hampton. A Good Example.?A small lad this morn ing called at our offico, and left a twenty-five cent piece, saying he wished it to be adacd to the fund lor the relief of the Norfolk and Portsmouth sufferers. It was all he had, and (though of comparative insignificant value) was, thrs circumstance considered, truly a no ble contribution, and indicated a generous spirit?a heart 41 to feel for otbors' woes.'' Now, as there are mai.y boys and girls simi larly disposed, we shall take great pleasure in receiving what they have to give, no matter what may be the surai?as well as the contri butions of adults?and place the money in proper hands for transmission to the fever-in fected districts. Liberal Response.?Ihe hands employed on the Washington aqueduct contributed, on Friday, the sum of two hundred and fifty dol lars for the Portsmouth and Norfolk "ufferer.. Some who receive but a dollar a day for their honest toil, as laborers, contributed, each, three dollars to that philanthropic object. The mere announcement of this fact cariies with it a commentary in the highest degree eulo gistic of those poor but generous laborers. Mr. Robert J. Lawrenson died on Satur day, from the injuries received on the Stoning ton railroad. The intelligence is well calcu lated to afflict his many friends, who loved him for his manly virtues. He was thirty-two years of age, and has left a widow and four children. His remains arrived in Washington this morning under the charge of his father, Air. James Lawrenson. The funeral will take place from Wesley Chapel this afternoon a*. 4 o'clock. Collections for the Virginia Suffer ers.?Notice W3.-5 givon by the rector of St. John's church. Rev. Smith Pyne, on Sunday, the second of September, that the collections of the month would be devoted to the relief of the sufferers in Norfolk and Portsmouth. On that day, the collections amounted to 530, and, on the r.inth inst int. to $120 03 ; thus far $150 03; which sum has been sent to Balti more to purchase supplies for the above nainod cities. Yesterday the Wesley Chapel congregation contributed a little over two hundred dollars To show what may be done in a small way, Messrs. Thomas O. Hills and W. M. Leishuar started, at nine o'clock this mcrning, a twen ty-five cent subscription, and before jnoon col li ctod thirty dollars. They will rcceive a like amount from any one, at the Washington store, Louisiana avenue, between Eighta and Ninth streets. More Aio ?Messrs. Renter 1 Dubant, the energetic proprietors of the Washington II ill restaurant, who have already contributed lib erally, desiroufcOt' giving further aid to the afflicted pe .pic of Norfolk and Portsmouth; they therefore proj?030 to devote the entiro re ceipts , not nett profits, of the establishment, to-morrow, for that purpose. Their entire force, Lumbering some fit teen persons, have volunteered iheir services for that occasion. Military Visit and Parade Postponed.? We team that in view <?l the death of the mother of Mr John A. Washington, the pro prietor of M >unt Vernon, the fifty-third regi ment cf Maryland volunteers will defer their visit thither t> a future occasion, to far, therefore, as our mili'ary is concerned, there will be no order issued for their parade on the afternoon of the twelfth instant, a - c mteni plated. A Musician Dead.?Raphael R. Friay, for nineteen years leader of the Marine Rund, has departed this life. The obituary notice in to day? paper stata* the timo of his burial, lie was respected a.* a man j.os?essed of noble, generous traits of character, and deservedly enjoyed a high reputation as a musician. Casip-Mletixg ?Colored folks held acamp xuetiing near Soagg's plu^o, yesterday. Theie was a large attendance of persons, both white and black, from this city and the surroundii g country. Wc learn that a disturbani-s took place on the ground between two individual! one white anil the other colored, and that tie latter was severely cut by the former. Some CoNtemptidlk Vestige of Humanity entire I the Methodist Protestant church, Ninth street, on sSuturday night or Sunday morning, and not only stole the books out of the choir, but left traces of hiacharacter which assimilate him to the lowe.-t order of biutes. The Alarm, last night, causing the ringing of the bells, tho cry of " fire ! tiro !" the haul ing out of the machines, and the confusion su.h as is consequent on such occasions, was occasioned by a bonfire in the First Ward. IIksbt Dunbar, colored, has been cent to jail by Juaticc llollirgshcad, charged with ctssling a watch from Mrs. Letmate. Watch Returns.?Caroline Usht-r, fugitive slave, sent to jail; G. W. Gaines, profanity, fine and costs; Daniel Diggs, drunk and dis orderly, workhouso thirty days; Ann Cah<e and Susan Matticgly, vagrancy, each work house thirty days. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Georgetown, Sept. 10, 1855. The little cxcitement consequent upon our election on Thursday has nearly died away. The victorious party seem to bear tbe blush ing honors of their brilliant victory with all becoming modesty, and tho defeated with as much patience as could be expected under the trying circumstances. Now and then we hear a laughable and biting joke about the matter which &ecms to be enjoyed by tho moderate Of both parties. Among them, we will notice two. Ou Friday, as we were going along, ono of our functionaries requested us to inform the public that tbe good people of Georgetown had formed such an excellent opinion of "Sam," (over the left,) and knowing him to be a Yankee by birth and raising, they feasted him s:) high on corn bread and molasses on Thursday, as to bring on a violent attack of cholera morbus, and although he had to nt ter.d him, during his illness, skilful doctors of the intellect, of law, and physic, the poor fel low expired, in great agony, about 0 o'clock at ti^ht. Another wag swore he was not dead; that he saw him ubout sunset going at light ning speed in the direction of Rockville, with his boots run down at the heel, coat and hat gone-, covered all over with sweat and dust, ; wearing eternal vengeance against the light of all Stars, annoying bells, (Beall,) Kings, and En<rli.-h. Fare thee well, Sammy ! Aa individual by the name of Kenedy, a laborer at the Washington Aqueduct, was muriered on Thursday la<t. Before he died, he cha-jrt'd two persons with being the perpe trat< >r? of the foul deed. They have been ar rested u*.d lodged in the jail at Rockville, Mi., and will be examined upon the charge before a Magistrate's Court to-lay. The fracas which led to this sad result, originated at one of the many luw gnggeries which have been bleated in the neighborhood of the work. We learn from one of the clerks at the Water Work*: (at the Great Falls,) that the hands employed upon it, contributed on Fridav la.t $2o0 for the reliet ot the Norfolk and Ports iaoath sufferers. Soma of the laborers who r>ceive only $1 per day for their hard ser vice*. contributed tu high as $3 a piece. Our citizens generally will doubtlew l>e pleased to learn that our former highly es teemed fellow citixen. the Rev Thos. Sewall. now atationed in Winchester, Va., will preach in the Dumbarton street Methodist church, on to-morrow, (Tuesday) evening, at 71 o'clock. The flour market closed on Saturday, with a letter feeling than had been visible in it daring the week, and with a slight advance in pricca over our quotations on that day. Small sales at S7.75aS7.87i, as in quality. Buyers offer freely the first named price for standard extra superfine brands, but holders are asking S7.87?, at which price buyer? do not seem anx ious to purchare to any extent.
