' At soiiie of the landings the fishermen, disgust ed with their luck, are cutting out already, and di icharginjf their bands. The Stony Point land ing. worked by Dearborn Johnson and John Gib son" of this citv. ha?, it is believed, been the most jtoceesaful station on the river.

The boys get the '-eats" 11 frw? gratis and for nothing," skin them and sell {ht 111 ^driving quite a trade thereat) at sixpence the string. Here are half-hogsheads containing eels, which have been trapped in barrels lowered froin the wharves The trap Is verv simple, consisting of a cask pierced with augur holes and baited inside with H^h offal The live eels we see here will be sold to the restaurant keepers and the dead ones will be pickled, barreled up and sent to Annapo lis to be ii?ed as bait for crab.^ and ?? snappers." The tlsh offal in the river attracts other custom r ? besides eels. White sea-gulls and black ?rows fraternize in feasting upon this floating carrion. dipping for it like so many swallows. In that group of purchasers we not ire not a few harp-looking Baltimore hucksters, distinguish able l>y their blue wool knit jackets. Washing ton hueksterdom is also adequately represented, a id there iof course, keen competition for good bargains.

We hasten on board the boat for Washing ton. which, however, does not start until twenty live minutes after her advertised time, and for that period we are kept in range of the detestable odor. Finally, the irregularity of the river boats is something' to be complained of on other grounds; and the line which shall try the experi ment of keeping punctual time will be sure to get the monopoly of patronage.

Messrs. Downs and Howard, in going their rounds discovered two persons skulking around the tower part of the yard, to whom they immediately gave chase, and one of whom they caught as he was in the act of climbing the wall. Thethieve* had succeeded in collecting together some seventy-flve pounds of copper and brass cuttings from the ordnance, or some other depaitment of the yard. The per son <-ati,;ht, whose name is Kane, proves to be an old offender, he having been caught at the same game on a former occasion mid let off by the aptein. who did not desire to prosecute him a.s he had been previously employed in the yard i..e name of his companion he'gave as Joe Wil liams. who is well known to the police of this city as a loafer and F.nglish Hill hullv. The of ficers are looking for him. and will nndoubt over haul him before they give up the chise. Kane wa he:d to hail by Justice Cull to answer at the next term of the Criminal Court. The copper and brass cuttings are worth some fifty cents pe. pound outside the yard, and hence tbe trade of Mealing it would be an immensely profitable one and well followed, were it not for the vigilance of the watchmen who guard the stores of the yard. _____ Mail Letti.vgs.?The following mail lettings (miscellaneous routes) announced at the General Post Offi? e on Saturday, are of District interest: .

Dahlgreen Is being rapidly completed at our Navy ^ard. ller equipment store# are daily expected from Norfolk, per steamer Water Witch, and by the 1st of June next she will be ready for service. One of the new improved pivot guns of Lieut. Dahlgreen is on board of her now, and is a formidable-looking instrument enough There are to be Ave of thowe guns on board on the ship, and thev so arranged a* to be used on either side, as may be required. She is to cruise along the coast, and visit the several naval ports In the S?Thf Minnesota equipments are being consum mated as rapidlv as possible ; her immense sheet anchor is already done, and goes to Norfolk this week when the Minnesota will proceed to Nor folk to receive her armament and provisions. She is expected to justify the most sanguine calcula tions as to her sailing and other capabilities, and r those who know say thatjshe has no superior in the Navv. The Fulton is nearly ready for orders, having been thoroughly overhauled and put in excellent ?ea trim; her engines have been faithfully exam ined and repaired, her old boilers taken out and supplied by new ones made in our Navy Yard for the purpose; her hull ha* been new caulked and sheathed, and part of the deck planking has been new laid. By the first of June she will be ready to receive liar armament, which is to be supplied from this Yard. The New Boiler Shop has been begun, and workmen are excavati ng for the foundation, which is being laid as fast as the work of excavation will permit. When completed this building will be capable of turning out a vast deal of heavy work, and thereby save to the Department the cost of transportation. Bkll Bcots for Califok.ua.?At the Navy Yard, the hands in the boiler shop are busily em ployed in fllliugan order for bell buoys for the dangerous places along the coast of California. These buoys are constructed of sheet Iron similar to that used in the manufacture of steamer boilers, and have a large bell attached, which, by con i tinual ringing, warns the mariner who has lost his whereabouts through the density of the fog or other cause, of his dangerous proximity to the rocky shore. Resisting an Officer.?On Saturday Johan na Meader and Mary Pblllippi were held to bail for Court by Justice Goddard for an assault on Amos Hunt, a constable, in the discharge of his duty.

Bogus Coin.?Well executed counterfeit quar ter dollars are in circulation in Wanhington.

Georgetown, April '17,1857. A little boy, about eight years of age, son of the Rev. Dr. Murray, of the Methodist Protestant church, was run over by an omnibus (not one of the Union line) on Saturday afternoon. It appears that he was crossing the street in company with another small boy, and while the driver was try ing to escape his companion, one of the wheels of the coach came in contact with little Murray, knocking him down and passing over his legs. Notwithstanding the flesh about the parts that came in contact with the wheel is badly brui ;ed and somewhat lacerated, we are pleased to luarn that none of his boner were broken. We are as sured, by persons who witnessed it, that it was purely the result of accident, and tliat no blame whatever can be attributed to the driver. It is now confidently predicted by persons en gaged in the management of the work, that the repairs at Dam No. 5. on our canal, will be suffi ciently far advanced by this day week. May 4th. to admit of the water being let on, and the passage of boats. Other persons, traders upon the canal, say by the 10th of May. As blind Jack said by his supper, "We had much rather see it, than hear tell oi it." Our friends, Amy and Shinn. are great fellows for doing things right. During the dull season they turned their attention to enlarging their premises, and other facilities for manufacturing and bottling their unsurpassed Summer drinks, and are now better prepared than they ever have for furnishing their numerous customers with everything in theirlineof a quality unsurpassed by that of any establishment in the Union. As a proof that Amy 4 Shinn do things up right, they have never failed to carry oft the medals, or high est awards of honor from every Fair at which they have exhibited their drinks. The supply of fish at our wharves has become rather more'plentiful, and prices have slightly declined. Shad were selling yesterday and this morning at SUal'2 per 100, and herrings at **a9 per l,0tffi. Some of the lower landings, we learn, are taking ax many as 1,300 to2,000 shad at a haul. The barque Win. Chase, Captain Dorry, from Porto Rico, with a cargo of sugar and molasses for the Messrs. Dodge, is below, and will proba bly be up to-day or to-morrow. We saw the cap tain this morning, looking as rosy and apparently as buovant in spirits as a boy. \ Small sales of flour since our last, at $6.50 for standard super. No change in giain. S.

Soir.Bi-ji?NoTaSros* Ca?ck?I* it Tsrr* It is stated that Prof Bacon. ??f Boston, said ih a lertureat the Medical College, that the saceharum of the Sorghum, or Chinene Sugar Cane, is not cane sugar, but what is well known as grape sugar or glucose?the same kind of sweet Mih stance that isobtain<-d by boiling starch in diluted sulphuric acid ; and that its sweetening nro|ier ties are not half equal to cane sugar. He said that glucose had often iieen manufactured from potatoes in Europe, and used to adulterate cane sugar. The sugars from beets, maple trees, corn-stalks and sugar cane appear to be alike, and naturally Inclined to granulate in solid hard <-ryst.il. while grape sugar is more inclined to remain in a soft mass, without granulating, and is much weaker in saccliaruin. though rich as a food. We should like to know whether Professor Bacon is correct alx>ut the statement that this new sugar plant will not produce cane sugar It is an iiupmtant questiou. Chemical.?Professor Guyot, of Cambridge, intends to publish an exposition of the creation of the universe upon the basiaof nebular hypothecs, embracing the eternal fire theory as on* that can be sustained. It is not contended that the evi dence in favor of the centre of the earth heing a mass of lire is of a positive nature, as in that ca^c the reasoning would cease to be hypothetical. But the evidence for the affirmative iaregarded aa accumulative, and to such a degree that it has Ix-eu considered by a vast majority of the scien tific world xs almost conclusive. Even admitting what is alleged as the cause of the high tempera ture of springs and mines, it i '? argued that it by no means follows that to the same origin may be t'aced the source of the fire poured from the Iww els of the earth. Prof l>oremus is of the opinion that the crnst of the earth must have l?een formed by the cooling process, and that the metals, being exceedingly dense, must abound more largely deep down than near the surface. The whole eartn is four or fire times as dense as water, while the crust is only two and a half times ; therefore the interior must consist of metals which aro eight, ten. twenty, or even more times as dense as water.
