I -a . _ r* .r A* Elderlv Ge.vti.kman 15 Trouble?A - ?t-antry gentleman, some 70 years of ago, ar rived in this city on Monday last, and at night took a stroll to see the town. He accidentally fot in company with some finely dressed, agree able young ladies on the street, who cheerfully accepted his invitation to see them safe home, and whea arrived there, be as cheerfully ac cented their invitation to walk in. On this elderly gentleman's return to his lodgings he ascertained that his money was missing The services of Officer Norwood were brought into requisition, who afterconsiderable search found the house where this elderiy gentleman had viaited. and the proprietress, though denying the robbery, offered to disgorge the money rather than the reputation of her house should be injured by any further prosecution of the affair. The elderly gentleman being of a modest unobtrusive turn seemed willing, and even anxious, not to be called into court as a witness lie accordingly accepted the offer and the case was dismissed. Doing Incindiart Attempts ? OnSatur day night last, an attempt was made to fire the he use of Capt Maddox at Glenallen, near Georgetown, by a person who was lircovered entering the bouse over the roof ot the shed, i>ut who made hisescape precipitately on being , ietected. It would appear that this person must hate been familiar with the premises, as the watch-dogs made no outcry as they would h-ve d< ne had he been a stranger. On Sun night the attempt was renewed, and more eucat -fully. The cellar was entered, and Aritfe tar and light wood a fire was started, whieu consumed the stairway and a portion of th# hou?c, and filled the building with a suffo cating smoke w hich, however, served toawaken the sleeping family and to enable them to ^make their escape By the most strenuous exertions of Capt. Maddox and his neighbors the flames were finally extinguished, a ta?k of no small difficulty, considering that it was constructed of inllamable yellow pine. SxrrRirr for Coirt.?Young Uolbrook, one of the party charged with riot at Ger bardt's saloon on the 15tb ult , gave bail be fore Justice llollingshead yesterday for his ap at the December term of thecriminal court. Th* United States.?Dr Spencer's " Uni ted States"1 is destined to take high rank among tho histories of our country. It is really on# of the best historical productions of the present age, and already enjoys the reputation of a standard work. Mr. Ban croft, our great historian, it is true, is more Shilosophical and elaborate than Dr. Spencer. esides this, the work of the former, compris ing some seven volumes, is at too high a cost for the generality of readers. Dr. Spencer supplies the desideratum by giving us a great national work, from the earliest period in tho history of the United States to the present time, complete in two volumes, quarto. The publishers, Martin. Johnson A Co., are issuing this history in semi-monthly parts, at 25 cents each, thus throwing it within the reach of all. Each number is illustrated with fine steel en gravings. * National Theatre ? By tho announcement in another column, it will be seen that the present excellent company performing at the National make their farewell bow to us to night. Their performances havo been so sat isfactory during their stay that we would gladly see much more of them, but as such a stay would, we presume, interfere with the programme of novelties to be carried out in regular course by the enterprising manage ment, we must e'en make the most of to-night's treat, and then bid adieu to the accomplished artistes. The bill offered to-night is Evadne and Paul Pry. The Called Meeting. ? The Mayor has callod a meeting of both board* of the city councils for this afternoon. The virulence of the party feeling of the majority in the board of Aldermen is so great, that they not only refuse to appropriate for the payment of the salaries, Ao., due the various officers of tho corporation, but to pass tho necessary appro Snations of money due contractors, workmen, c , for cleaning the streets. In fact, their factiousness has thus well nigh brought the machinery of the city government to a stand still ; and if continued much longer, must cause a suspension of all the corporation con tracts and other business operations. The Turners now in this city claim to bo the genuine convention of the association, au thorized by the convention at Buffalo in 1855. Since that convention soma members have been expelled, who, in order to oreate a dis sension, circulated a report among the dele gates that they were liable to be robbed and murdered should they assemble in this city. Some of the delegates, frightened by this ridiculous suggestion, have gone to Pittsburg to hold a meeting. The main body are, how ever, assembled here, and their convention will be fully organised to-day. The Highlanders' Trip.?The Highland ers had a delightful excursion, indoed, yester day, to the Great Falls of the Potomac. The attendance of interesting and agreeable las sies was large, as well as of tho male friends of the gallant company. It is said the flirta tions on board the canal boat, the scrambling over the picturesque rocks, and the poetic walks in the umbrageous evergreens, resulted in at least half a doxen matches, soon to come off. Reynolds, of the El Dorado, as caterer, acquitted himself to the entire satisfaction of those present, as he always does on such oc casions Malicious Mischief.?Yesterday afternoon two young men created a disturbance on the Avenue near Sixth street, which caused the assembling of a very great crowd. They had been ejected from a restaurant for some cause, and when on tho pavement, they commenced destroying the furniture belonging to Mr. J. Downs, auctioneer. One of them. J. Knight, was arrested and held to bail for court by Justice Dwnn. The citizens were obliged to send for a police officer and a member of the Auxiliary Guard to mako the arrest. Wm. II. Palmer ?It will bo perceivod by an advertisement that this accomplished pianist and instructor in musis having re turned from his late trip to the North, pro poses shortly to commence his fall professional campaign. We need say nothing of his capa city as a teacher of music, his success in this community having been, perhaps, unprece dented iu the history of musical instruction in this country. Sportsmen who for pleasure and gain havo been watching the tides in tho creeks and marshes along the Potomac, have bad an early season. Many who hunt ortolan for the res taurants, have left this city to try their skill in localities loss frequented. These are so many skilful amateurs in Washington that the regular punners find it difficult to make their wages on the Anacostia, Potomac, and the creeks in the neighborhood. Take Partners for the cotillon party of the Empire Club, this evening, at tho Armory, on Louisiana avenue, between Sixth and Soventh streets. A fine time may be expected, the Empire boys being noted for tho excellence of their arrangements for tho pleasure of their friends, ana for the good order kept at their parties. ??

Fillmore and Donelson Great Song Book, only 10 eents, for sale at A. Adamfon's, Sev enth street, opposite to the Post Office. * Watch Returns.?During the last two nights there have been no oases for trial in the Central Guard-house. Lodgers now begin to occupy the cells, the cool weather obliging them to seek shelter from the night air. The lodgers are generally from other cities, and some of them have made the Washington workhouse their winter residence for yoars past. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. . Georgetown, September 3, 1856. Col. Jacob, of Bellville, Illinois, tho gentle man who has leased the Union hotel, has reachcd our oity, and is going to work in good earnest, making the necessary preparations for opening this old and formerly popular es tablishmcnt. From all we can learn of the character of the Colonel, he is the very man for such an establishment, and we havn't a doubt but under his management tho old Union will again become what it once was, one of the most popular publio houses and de sirable retreats for the weary traveler this District can afford. We know of nothing ex cept the Metropolitan railroad, which is more needed in our city at this time than a well regulated hotel It is rumored that an extensive coal com Eany, now located at Locust Point, Baltimore, as leased the Lonaconing Company's docks, where they intend soon to commence operations. Georgetown is the natural outlet for this ar t'cle of trade, (Cumberlandcoal,) and the fact that it can be transported from the mines to northern markets at considerable less expense by tnnahippiog it at IBs point, will ere long | satisfy other companies, now located elso where, that it will be greatly to their interest to establish themselves at Georgetown, where the facilities for carrying on such a business are unsurpassed anywhere in the Union Tho general hoalth of our oity continues ex cellent. Its elevated position, the unusually cleanly condition of oar streets, and the salu brious and healthy atmosphere which sur rounds us, rendors Georgetown peculiarly de sirable A3 a place of residence, especially during the summer and fall months. The fire which ocourred in tho dwelling of Capt. Maddox, as noticed in the Star of yes terday, damaged the premises to the amount of some $500. We understand that it was the work of an incendiary. Persons who were loitering about the place on tho day before arc suspeoted of being the authors of the vil lainous deed. The M. C. Meigs returned with her cargo of pleasure seekers (the Highlanders excursion) about twelvo o'clock last night. Our antici pations of yesterday in regard to the trip was fully met. Notwithstanding tho immense 1 crowd, every thing passed off in the most agreeable manner, not a cross word, or any accident occurred during the day to mar the peace of any. Capt. W.XI. Ritter is the very man to manage excursions. We learn that everything connected with tho Fairfax camp-meeting, now going on, is moving finely. Excellent order is maintained, and good feeling seems to pervade the whole camp, with a fine prospect of much good being accomplished Flour, this morning, is firm, with sales at $6.50aS6 621 for standard brands; stock and receipts light Wheat?
