EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Thi Jfitioiu Hotbl sicknoas seems to be attracting great attention through the conn try. The 5?w York Herald says; " IJ" eddkioa to other victims from the D?i ?00 of KM kind Imbibed in Washington, we learn that George Clifford, Esq , a lawyer of thi. city, fa very ill from the JSm? states that he was taken within a few hours after having drank freely of the watar. ** Among other aufferera la Petar Coopar, Esq., who, however, is gradually recovering from the effects of tha disease. He atataa that there warei over one handrad oocnpanta of tha hotel at tha time ha waa attacked, and that ?Vwfr?Ii6a y/!1, W9n 8>,**d wUh Nlne?? within twenty four hours. Ho noticed that in the main hall an offenaive smell existod, wblcb was the only peculiarity that attracted I attention The attack commenced with distress of the stomach, nausea and vomiting, accompanied with or fallowed by a severe and debilitating diarrhoea. At timea the dis charges were so frequent as to occor several timaa in an hoar, and were frequently attend ed with severe tenesmus. "Mr. Cyras W Field alao suffered severely 'with the disease, and although enfeebled by tha severe purging, hia abdomen retained un usual fulnesa and tension. Mr Coopar stated that some of bis acquaintances had diad from the effects of the disease. As Mr. Field re quired proper raat, his physicians thought a sea voyage would prove advantageoua to him. flense be sailed ia the Persia ?We believe Mr. Wilson G. Hunt, with sev eral other citisens of New York, were saffor era to a greater or less extent. "What was tha nature of the poison which afliatad ao large a number of people in such a brief period of time? We have no idea tint it did or could prooaed from foul air, other wi*' the symptoms would not have been of suoh sodden and uniform development in such a variety of constitutions. It was no doubt a poison of some kind introduced at the hotel either by accident or design. From all the rymptoms of the attacked some respectable physicians of this eity do not hesitate to pr - nouace them to be of an arsenical character, or such as would be likely to be produced by the action of arsenic, taken to a certain ex tent into the system. ?' Let the apothecaries in Washington be ex amined, to know whether they have sold poi son for salts of tarter, or other substanoes to the hotel employ*#, and let confectioners, ba kere, and milkmen be examined Milk may (though not at this season probable) be render ed poisonous by the food of cattle. The aodi ments of tha water tanks should also be ana lysed Such widespread suffering surely de mands at the hands of the Washington au thorities the most thorough investigation." The Newark Daily Advertiser of the 13th instant, rays: 44 Several persons from Newark, while at Washington recently, partook of the water at tho National Hotel whieh had been poisoned by the rats, and were made very sick thereby, one lady so badly that her life has been de spaired of. Cue or two deaths have already occurred, and it is truly providential that all war* not killed from its affect/. The Roe neater Union says it learns from a private source, that Hon. 0. B Mattaaon, is not expected to recover from the attack of the rat epidemic from which he waf suffering when he returned to Utica from Wssiirgton. The editor of the New York Day Book, who was at the National Hotel at the time of the inauguration, rejects the cat theory, and sums up a careful artiole reviewing the whole case, as follows: " Horace F. Day, Esq., ?s now lying very low in this city, lie was a boarder thera, and no doubt is affected precisely as Mrs. Adams A daughter of Senator James is also very sick and under the charge of Dr Marcy. Dr. Leon has several patients, including a chitd of the writer, who ia very low. That we have all bean poisoned by some substance daily ad miniaterad to us in the food, ia beyond a ques tion. What the substance waa, how, or b7 whom administered, remains a mystery. The proprietors of the house, we are satisfied, have used every effort and means in their power to find out tha cause of this widespread infliction, but in vain To them it is as profound a mvi ta rv as to any ia the land a he Daily Jacksonian. of Newark, says: *' Among the individuals suffering from a sojourn at tha National Hotel, Washington, is our fellow-citisoo, Gol Hamilton, editor of the Sussex Herald He came on with us from Trenton on Friday forenoon, on his way horn*. He has loet flesh wonderfully, and is still suf fering from deranged bowels, producing inces sant diarrhoea that it seems impossible to check, and that weakens and emaciates him very much He says of forty that partook of a special banquet at tha National, every one was taken down, and arc still suffering. The New York Express a!ks, "why in al most every oaae sickness results only after, partaking of food? ' and adds : "The mias ma hypothesis infers bad air only,?but it does not appear that tha servants and other employees of tha establishment, who must have been breathing that air constantly, have shared the mysterious sickness which has overtaken the guests at tha public table. Tais is a curious circumstance, and one which the public would be much obliged to the Board of Health?or some learned medical authority?to explain." Very easily explained, Mr Expressthe "circumstance'' may be "curious/' but Is not true In fact, the servants of the hotel were taken dv>wn so rapidly by tha sickness that a guest of the bouse (snd one of the safferets; says that he had six different servants waitiag ujon him in sueceeew* ia as many hours ; one after another being attacked in turn Pockit ricxino?A FsMALa Operator.? Catharine Carthaus, a fashionably dreesed, { good-looking young woman, was yesterday ar rested by OScer Bos? for picking the pcckct of Mrs. James Bow en, whose store at the cor ner of Sixthstreet and Massachusetts avenue, ahe entered on pretence of examining somo goods. She cave security for her appearance at Court The mcney was reooverea. Cath arine is from Baltimore, and has been opera ting ia this city as an omnibus thief, io com pany with a confederate named Mary Keseler. A Co??isro*D*5T calls attention to the condition of the sewer on the south aide of Pennsylvania avenue, nearly oppoeite the Na tional Hotel, and which is in so Altby a con dition, aa to make it a great nuisance in that neighborhood. The city authorities will doubtless give it an oierhaullng Wacsb a Italia. ?Wo take pleasure in an nouncing that the sucoeas attending this mar itorloaa exhibition has induced the mansger la stay in our aity one week mere Arrange ments have been made with several a-socia tiocs and schools to attend on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons when Big Vivaldi will introdaoe bis L liiputian Family.

Gardiner k Place, of Twelfth street, near the canal, exhibit a very beautiful buggy carriage at the Fair, remarkable aot more for the akill of Ita aorkmanahip than for the graoe and convenience of its design. As a light mmmer wagon, it is indeed, in all respects, a model in its way. Policx ?

He proved by one ef bis workmen that the articles (which ha ad mitted he beWeved to ba stolen; war* left near his premises bj a colored man without the knowledge of >aid Mekag, and at x<igkt ware placed in his shop. The articlea identified belonged to the family of Mr S. Par tar, and ware delivered to him after the investigation. J L Smith and Wm. J. Martin, Eoqs., for defence John B fftflliday, John Parry and Joseph Somcrs. were arrested by Officers Kemble and King, U 8. Police Officers Norwood of the auxiliary guard, and Wataon of the city po lice, for fraudulently combining with others to obtain money by batting on a game called " monte, or three -card triok," and with hav inf, in said combination obtained tha sum of tan dollara from a man named Ulrieh Banff It waa proven that the g-?me was conducted in tha open air at or near Page's wharf. Offl oers Kemble and Norwood having been in formed that the game waa in progress, pro ceeded in a carriage to tlaa scene of action, and on their way met four persona, who after wards proved to be the men they were in pur suit of. The officers immediately returned, when a foot race took p!aoe. The fancy men having the start, preceded the pursuers, and made tracks for the oity. A portion of them entered a gambling house on Pennsylvania avenue ; the others took reftige in a house of ill-fame kept by a woman earned Elisabeth Golden in Long Alley, from whose domicil they were routed and took refuge uninvited in the dwelling cf Mr. W. H. Falkner, Penn sylvania avenue, from whiob dwelling they were taken by the officer?, and after hearing all the evidence, the Justice committed them to jail for trial before the Criminal Court. John Perry was soon after bailed out by Denton 8. Porter, who qualified that he waa in possession of sufficient property to justify in the sum of $266. In the train of these gamblers, at the mag istrates offiee, we noticed some youths, the sons of respectable gray haired citizens, who would shudder at the intimation that their children were in familiar aaaociation with i inch characters Washington oity is unfor tunately infested with more than its share of gamblers and genteel swindlers, and parents should oxeroise active vigilance in ascertain ing the character of the persons with whr-m their children associate The National Hotel Siceeess. ? Tbe Mayor and sub committee of tbe Board of ilealth concluded their investigations lrst night, and will report the cause of the sick nesi at the National to be what we original !y suggested?? e , defective sewerage, tbe s'ench-lrap at the corner of Sixth street and the avenue holding the foul air and throwing it back upon the hotel. It was stated before tbe examiners, by a guest of tbe house, that he had stopped at the house at three different times during t'be sickness ; that be recovered from a slight attack on his first visit, and on his next visit took the precaution to eat and drink elsewhere, merely lodging in the house, bat was attacked more violently than before. Ue is now again stopping in the house, in per fect health, but sleeps with his chamber win dow open and with a fire burning in the room.

Inaugural Humbuo?Some of oar fossil old fogies grumble terribly about the energy dis played by Shillington, the great bookseller and news agent in this city, in selling views of the Capitol and Pennsylvania avenue, as | they appeared on inauguration day, whioh were engraved a few hours in advance, and published in Leslie's Illustrated Paper. We admit that in these few houra, tbe Capitol mifht have been burned and Pennsylvania avenue might have been rendered impassable for tbe President elect by the croud of country subscribers who preferred making an invest ment in Leslie's magnifioent Illustrated Pa per, rather than call upon the Editor of tbe Weekly Grumbler to pay up for stale report* of medical proceedings a week old, or disin terred relies from the past But for tbe infor mation of the publio, we would state that Mr. Shillington has received the third number of ] Leslie's paper ocntaining numerous illustra tions of the inauguration.
