EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Attempted Suicide.?Yesterday afternoon, about three o clook, an individual named Win fjptj. a cabinet-maker, resiling in the Sev er th Ward, under the excitement of brain that follows excessive drinking, applied for rtrvchnina at the drug store of Mr. Dyson, at th?*?' rner of Pennsylvania avenue and Iweifth rtreet, with an iutiroation that his purpose to destroy his life. On being refused he IrK the store with oaths and imprecation^on the head of the druggist, and, proceeding d- #n to the drug store of the young Messrs. Ford, on the corner below, he changed his manner entirely, asking calmly, and so as to create no suspicion of his purpose, for an t unce of laudanum, which he purchased. On getting out of the store, ne hastily drew the cork aud swallowed the contents of the vial. Fortunately, one of the proprietors of the ?t re observed him, and sprang out after h m following him into Mr. Adams's R^stau rai-t near by, where he had taken a seat in one of the boxes. He (the druggist) informed tb-*e presort what Espy had done, and with their assistance, took him by main force back Into the drug store, where Mr. Ford, instant ly ?eading for medical aid, also attempted to tfjrce down bis throat emetics, which Espy re sisted, refusing to swallow them. Drs. Berry and Force soon arrived, and made Various efforts to compel him to take emetics, or to submit to the operation of the stomach pump, against which he struggled with a suc cess truly remarkable, considering the physi cal forre employed to save his life. Late in th* afternoon the drowsiness consequent on the laudanum in him conquered his faculty of re sistance. and the physicians applied the sto mach pump- by means of which so much of the poison was extracted from him that he be gan to revive after they had given up almost all hope of saving him. Getting him on his feet again, they and their assistant bystanders next kept him in motion against his will, until all danger was passed. His case was man aged with skill and perseverance, reflecting th^ highest credit on tne physicians called in, a- above described. Mr. Ford, too, by his {resence of mind and erergy, notwithstanding is youth, placed the case within the reach of the skill of hose gentlemen. A delay of ten minutes on bis part might have rendered Es pey's recovery past hope. Mirper ?On Thursday, the 6th of Septem ber, a drunken quarrel took place in a grog tfc p, established just beyond the Great Falls, fur ibe puipose of selling liquor to the Gov ernment bands employed on the aqueduct. Micnael Kennedy was beaten. He left the groggery in company with three other men, and, being drunk, fell in the woods, hurting himself severely. He was left by his compan a ions to sleep off the effects of the liquor. This I was about 2 p. m. Oa Wednesday, about I a m . he was seen without his cap, endeavor f ir.g to make his way to the Great Falls, where I he had been employed, and complaining of at pain and injury. He was assisted to the ? lubbers' quarters, where, in about an hour, he died. A post mortem examination showed that he was severely bruised; and thus, under one of the bruises on the abdomen, there was a rupture of one of the intestines. The coro ner's jurj found that he came to his death by violence. Hagh ard John Bruniham were arrested and examined on the charge of having caused his death. They were taken, after examina tioa. to Rockville, to which place the magis trate adjourned the ca-e. Tbe wounded man, it-aid. before his death, declared that he lad been waylaid in the woods and knocked down. There is a myrtery about the case The evidence showed clearly that he bad been struck and knocked down in the grog-shop, lut the person to whom Kennedy male his dying declaration was not pre.-tent at the in que>t, and perhaps his mind may have been ? n:u>ed. and he may have confounded the beati g in the gTog-shop with tho supposed subsequent attack in the woods. This is one more victim to the avarice which Sets up these grog shops to tempt a set ol workmen who are peaceable and industrious, when sober into such a*ts when maddened b^ liquor. Tho grog-shop is kept by a Mr Thrift. City Councils?in the B^ard of Aldermen yt.-terday afternoon.

This iuvolves a mistake; as the business of the police is to ar ro.?t persons who place such disgusting filth in the street?not to remove it; which is the work of the Ward Commissioners. We are satisfied, however, that the number of labor ers and teams accorded to the commissioners by the council tor this purpose, is wholly insuf ficient at this season.

[communicated. A Youxg Bachelor Defends the Ladies. " Whatever hypocrite* austerely talk Of purity and place and innocence. Defaming as impure what (Jod declare* pu*e." Milton. The comments, Mr. Editor, of " Old Bache lor," in your paper of the 8th., upon the buh ject of ladies' skirte, recall to my mind a per tinent reminiscence. When Mr. Kellogg some years since, was first exhibiting Power's exquisite work, the Greek Slave, I accompanied a fair and pure hearted creature to s?jc this thing of beauty. We stood spell-bound and silent, gating upon the modest beauties, the chaste voluptuous ness of the seemingly animated marble, as it slowly revolved upon its pedestal. Many brave men and fair women were there, high toned and refined, and all were silent?all thoughts were chaste, for " to the pure all things are pure,'' much more the pure itself. Presently the stillness was broken, and my at tention attracted by tho flabby, silken, fussy important entry of two coarse-featured, though not unhandsome women, (accompanied each hy a flashy beau.) who swooped down the aisle towanis where stood the statue. Deeply concerned in looking around to see who ob served their jewelry, and who admired them selves, they did not see the statue until brought to by the railing around it, and in front of Mademoiselle Sara and myself. No sooner, however, had thev beheld it, than they bid tbeir faces behind gaudy fans, their pimply foreheads flushing with the glow of outraged modesty; while, with virtuous indignation, the elder said, ''Come, Lisa, had'nt we better leave ?" "Indeed ha I we!" So off they flounced, highly ineenscd. M ile Sara, the pure, the intellectual and refined, looked into my face so honestly, as, with delicate finger upheld, she said: i%Honi soiquoi mal y pense ' People see green .through green spectaclos " That was all. Now, is not your correspondent, who cannot see a lovely woman lift her skirts upon the street crossings without clamping the act a? " shameless immodesty." in the lame category with my frouiy prudes ? Or, to be less senous and more racy in style, as I am in thought, if he not ; but never mind ; this article is too long already So, with with a hope that, despite old bachelors. I may yet again, and often, enjov the refined pleasure of seeing a fine turned ancle and arcning foot, I remain, dear sir. . A Yoiho Bachelor. September 9. |( OMMINICATEO. Messrs. Editors : I have just received from Primary School No. 2, second district, Miss L. H Randolph, teacher, $5.50 for the sufferers. This money they desire to be appropriated to the orphans made by the plague. I hope th:s noble example will be imitated by all the schools. It will be an appropriate and glorious tribute from the little ones of this city to the orphaned hearts of Norfolk and Portsmouth. Carry your mites, children, to your teachers, small as they may be; the good Master, who, in the day of his earthly pilgrimage loved and blessed little children, will not despise them.
