EVENING STAR. 1QCAL IHTELLIGEBCE. THE WEEKLY STAB Of to-day contains sixteen columns of Wash ington news and gossip, five oolamna of local items, numerous fine tales, sketches, political and personal item*, poetical brilliant*. Ac , Ac , with full details of all the foreign and domestic news of the week. Individuals who are plodding along the dustj track of life without subscribing to the Weekly Star, have no manner of idea what a fund of happiness they are missing. Terms tl 25 per year; single numbers three cents ??? Swibdlibo ?A lot of bogus white men have been swindling poor, ignorant, colored persons by foigning themselves to be members of the guard or police officers A abort time since an attempt was made to swindle a col ored msn oat of ten dollars by a man who purred a fnlse warrant upon him The man ? ffered to stand trial, and the sharp, finding h id too smart, sneaked away. A few nights ago a gang arrested a colored female, and took her toward the guard-house; she gave tbeui all the money she had, and they let her go. She was again taken by another of these gangs, but her money being all gone they let her go. Another person went into a colored woman'a house and took a member of the family out for bo offence whatever. We are requested by the guard to say that none of these persons belong to thi * gnard or the pres ent poliee force. The guards wish it to be kaown that they have no power to claim or receive fines from any offender The police cannot take a fine unless upon the order of a magistrate, and must give a receipt therefor. Any colored person sought thus to be imposed upon by worthless scoundrels, should prompt* ly report the facts, with names, to this office, and we will take measures to bring them to punishment. Corbowiro Babies ? An amusing incident occurred a few days since in Sixth street. A gentleman and lady wore blessed with a beau tiful child, of about a year old, which attract ed so much attention from the neighbors, that the young ladies opposite frequently sont over * t<> borrow tho baby " After being obliged to s-end for the child several times, Mr. ??, on coming home to dinner, got out of temper on finding it gone as usual. " Here, Jane, ' said he, addressing the nurse, "go over to the Misses , and get the baby ! give them my compliments, and tell them I wish they'd get a baby of their own, and not bo obliged to borrow." ? A Trip worth Tinss -We see that the congregation of Qrace church, (Rev A. Hol mead, rector,) Island, encouraged by the great success attending their late excursion for the benefit of their Sunday school library, have now arranged for a moonlight excursion to the White House, on Tuesday, Aug 19 The fine steamer George Waehington has been engaged to take the party down, a band of music en gaged, and in other departments the samo pains have been taken aa heretofore to secure the comfort, safety, and happiness of the oom pany Tbe price of tickets' ia put so low, too, that it ise/noat cheaper going than staying at home?to say nothing of the new stack of Lealth and spirits to be attained by the trip. Germab Democrats.?-The Germania Club held a very interesting meetinsr last night in the large hall of Coombi's Building, on the avenue, near Tenth street. The nail was crowded with Democrats who appeared to be earnestlyjengaged in the cause. Several able addre?*es were delivered by prominent mem bers of the party After the meeting ad journed the club formed in line, and marched in procession to tbe Capitol, and thence, by way of Maryland avenue and Four-and-a-half street, to their club-rooms. Espata's band was with tbe procession, and performed sev eral excellent quicksteps. Pilfejubo?The dealers in fruits, Ac , in the markets, find it requisite to be watchful to prevent boys and men lrom robbing them night sad day. Frequently large numbers of melons, pears, peaches and apples, .are taken from the marketers while the dealers are pre paring their stands Beys are frequently caught, but Bre let go by the marketers ot. aooeunt of the email value of the articles taken at one timr. Some of the dealers are getting tired of thede petty thefts, and have determined to prosecute the pilferers when ever taken in the act. Imdbpbbdbbt Police.?We would oall the especial attention of oar readers, here and throughout the Union, to the advertisement in another column of the newly established police firm of John Davis, W. A. Boss, John son Simonds, A. K. Allen and John H. Wise. We apprehend that five more efficient men in the department in which they advertise their services can hardly be found in the eountry. Their office, in the building occupied by Jus tice Hnliingshead, is central and convenient, and they can be found there at any hour from 7 a. in. to 12 p m. A Superior Instrument ?Any effort to elevate the character of our church musio de serves warm appreciation, and wc accordingly congratulate the " Assembly Church," of which Rev Mr Carothers is tbe worthy pas tor, upon the acquirement of a fine toned new organ from the well known establisnment of Erben, of New York Prof. Dennis has been engaged as organist, and tbe new organ will be brought into service under his practised hand on to-morrow.

The machinery for unloading eoal boats at the docks of the Lonaconing company, was tried yesterday, and acted like a charm. The most sanguine expectations of the designor, Mr. Duvall, and those present to witness the trial, were fully realized. So perfect is every arrangement in oonneotion with the large cyl inders which pass through the aqueduot and the bottom of the boats, and through which the coal is discharged while unloading, that a number of gentlemen passed up through, ?ur round o> I by water without receiving the first drop upon their clothing. By this process it l< believed that boats can bo unloaded in much less than one half the time usually consumed by the machinery in general use We under stand that this company anticipate, when they K' i W?7i receivinS shipping about four hundred thousand tons of coal per annum. The Swanton company is also driving an activo business. s Business upon our canal this week has been T*?, 4B?th,the number of arrivals end the receipt of tolls shows a very consider able increase over last week. Number of arrivals seventy-six. Sixty of these were from Cumberland, bringing about 6,000 tons Oi coals, six with flour, and the remainder with lime stone, Ac. The reoeipts at the George town Collector's office, for the same period amounts to about *5,000. ? ' The offerings of beef cattle at Drover's Rest yesterday amounted to only 170 head.

The political campaign seems just now at a stand, as though a truoe had been concluded between the parties that commenced the cam paign with so inuoh spirit.

A remarkable illustration of faith in prayer is presented in the case of (Jeorge Rapp, the founder of the Communists in Bea ver oounty, Pennsylvania. He came to Pitts burg about the first year of the settlement of the community at Old Harmony, to obtain some necessaries. The crop was in the ground and promised well, but the means of the com munity were exhausted, some debts already incurred, and these things must be had on credit This was bluntly refused, the scheme was thought chimerical, snd merchants would risk no more. The founder was in distress. the community must have the articles or sufrcr want His' sole resource was prayer, and four times during that night he rose from hie bed to pray. In the morning, as is said, wituout farther solicitation, the merchants came and offered the goods on the terms ask ?d That was the last great strait of the so cfety. POLITICAL ITEMS Johnson, heretofore one of the most FIT Tl Kdow things in the State of Ken tucky, has come out for " Buck and Breck " MissouriGovernor eleot of Missouri, is a Delawarean by birth, and for merly lived near Smyrna. A great gathering of the "unterrifled De 3?re*?? Th.^r BriUln' Connecticut took place on Thursday evening last. Crowds of people came in from the surrounding town? and it is estimated that all of seven thousand persons were present Speeches were made by Messrs Hateh, Johnson. and Sirens wh?* remarkswere received with enthusiastic nT plause. p" The "Rev. Dr. Tyng," of Philadelphia, who has been braying sectional polities from the sacred deek to the diagust of his hearers is not the Rev. Stephen II Tyng. D D of St George's Chureh, New York, wh ose com mand tog tongue and pen have the homage of even rivals and opponents, a*d whose influ ence in the religions sphere is confessedly, at this date, second tc that of no living man The Philadelphia Tjng is the ignoble son of ? worthy sire. The Louisville Courier, speaking of the re cent elections in Kentucky, says: "It is the height of folly for Know Nothings to pretend that there was no issue in the contest. They made a test vote wherever they could, and have been s'gnally worsted everywhere LmI *'n.te.r allowed the Democracy only two judicial districts. The Democrats have ear ned ten out of the thirteen This, we say again, 13 but a foretaste of November." Jt is said that in Berks county, Pa ?that old Democratic stronghold, which has always been good for four or five thousand Democratic majority there is not a Fremont man to be found in all its borders, and that a reward of one thousand dollars has been offered for the man who will acknowledge himself in favor oi the Wooly Horse candidato. The whole snr face of the county has been traveled over, and cot a man to claim tho reward. There was, says the Albany Argus, a fusion of know Nothings and Republicans in the re cent State election in Iowa, which cannot be sustained in the national contest. The success of this coalition is no argument against a Democratic triumph in the State in the fall. 1 he vote that was recently united against the Democratic party will be divided between r lilmore and Fremont in November, and a Democratic plurality will be almost a matter of course. u,lSTBFertr and A*uc f "red.?Hostetter's BI1TKR8 hare proven themselves to t* of great Tiine in I f#^?a *&ne.
