LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. At*>rr Do<j? ?It Is estimated that there are ii?>w in the city of Washington not less than three thousand Jive hundred dogs , au increase since 1350 of at least fifteen hundred No other city in the country of it* size can, it is believed, show anything like such imposing canine statistics, and their accuracy might readily be questioned were It not a matter of notoriety that in hundreds of households in the northern portion of the citv, First Ward, Island, Nan Vara, and Capitol Hfll the dogs outnumber the family two to one. It is no uncommon thing to see six, eight, or ten, and sometimes as high as fifteen dogs attached to the premises of some poverty-stricken white or col ored man. who can scarce find his family in bread, and where quite apparently 44 things are going to the dogs." It is doubtless within the recollection of the municipal officers how a pauper lately, on being sent to the poor-house, was fol lowed thither by his stren faithful dogs. A gentleman, whose name, were we at liberty to give it. would tie a guarantee that he would rather understate than overstate a fact, assures us that on a fine moonlight night latelv he counted no less than ninety-turee dogs trotting past his door, in single file, apparently on some forav. This was on the Island, where the dogs not only abound, hot where they are formidable from their close affiliation, training in packs and congrega ting nightly in vast assemblages, where, seating themselves in a circle, on their haunches, and elevating their noses perpendicularly, they howl to i oncert for many hours together. The howling of <o many does affects the stran ger unpleasantly, even disturbing his slumbers, but Is not considered disagreeable by residents: and. indeed, we are told that Seventh Warders, moving into neighborhoods more sparsely popu lated with dogs, have so missed the familiar yelpings as to pass sleepless nights, and have been compelled either to return or to colonize large numbers of dogs on their premises?such is the force of habit: With such an army of " curs of all degree"' at large unmuzzled it is inevitable that more or less ?ersous will Ije bitten this season, and aceordin*' y we give the following 44 KKCIPE FOR TBI BtTK OP A MAD OOO. "Take oystersbells, burn to a lime, pulverize and sift through a pice of gauze; take two heaped tablespoons-full of the sifted lime and mix with eggs to the consistency of batter or cream; fry this in a pan with a piece of fresh butter or some sweet-oil. This cake to be eaten in the morning, and nothing of food or drink to be taken for six hours afterwards" We have, we must conies*. no particular faith in this or any other remedy for hydrophobia, but it may lie a consolation to the doomed ones to know that they are having the benefit of all the chance*. Should the City Councils by any chance put seasonable (temporary) restrictions upon the dogs, and the municipal officers enforce them, of course the necessity for the recipe will be done away with. The Rivkii.?The western draw of the Long Bridge was raised this morning to allow the sleepers to be laid for the iron rollers. The travel will be suspended until Saturday, when the work will lie so far advanced as to allow its resump tion. The steamer Maryland. Capt Mitchell, arrived fiom Norfolk yesterday, at 3 o'clock p. m. She was detained beyond time. lieing compelled to >topat almost every river landing to takeon board passengers. This fact auguis well for the success of the line. On her passage up. she passed in the mouth of the river the packet schooner Hamilton, t'roin New York for Georgetown; she has proba bly ere this reached Alexandria, where she will discharge part of her cargo. The steamer Powhatan left the wharf at nine o'clock, with the '? Still Club" excursionists to l?eonardtown. She had on board an excellent cotillon band and a large number of passengers, and some of the prettiest of our Washington girls. No doubt, from the appearance of certain boxes and baskets which weat on board the l*o?t just before she started, her passengers will be well cared for We learn, this morning, that the cause of the fight among the down-river excursionists yester day was, that at the White House some two or three men went into the river to bathe without putting themselves to the inconvenience of seek ing a retired place for their purpose. The ladies present were naturally very indignant, and were determined not to let such a breach of decorum go unpunished: they accordingly Instigated the fight, and that the punishment should be well ad ministered cheerfully lent their assistance,bring ing fists, feet, and their fair finger nails to l>ear?n the cause of decency and good morals, which was thus triumphantly sustained The steamer Page this morning took down more than a hundrul passengers en rose for the Springs The George Washington went this inorniii" to Georgetown to take the Dumbarton stieet Metho dist Episcopal Choiron an excursion to the White House and the Fort, where they will pass the day in the usual manner. Tit* Di*cove*t or Washisctox City ?At the Capitol we have the picture of DeSoto dis covering the Mississippi, but on the easel of Stanley, the artist, may be seen a painting of an historical subject nearer home. Wing the discov ery oT Washington?or rather its site?by Captain John Smith, who, it Is well known, was the first white voyager up the Potomac, and was the first white niau.tliat set foot on these shores. Smith is represented in this picture as in the net of making a landing with his party on the Potomac shore, at the foot of Kighth street a place which probability and tradition Indicates as reailv the point where he touched on his arri val at the intersection of the Potomac and Ana cost in. In conference with the redoubtable voyager is neen a party of native Indians, consisting of Counsellors. Priests and Chiefs, painted with inat truthfulness to nature which distinguishes this artist's representation of the aboriginal. We recoguize too the magnificent down-river view presented at this point, which is one of the finest on the river. Green leaf s Point is represented as covered with shrubbery, in accordance with a theorv enter tained by old citizens, well qualified to judge, that this point of laud took its name not from au Individual, but from the fact of its being covered with a luxuriant vegetation. In support of this theory Is brought fetward the fact that in the '-Washington Gazette," of 1796?the first paper iuiblished here?the place is spoken of as i-(freeH ?*/Puiut. ' It was at that time public propertv and consequently could not have been identified with the person who was afterwards the owner of much of the land in that vicinity, and whose name, according to popular belief thereby became attached to it. This picture is being executed to the order of nue of our tn..st eminent citizens, who has. In ad dition to his other good works, done much to en roitrage American artists to illustrate home seenery and subjects. i*ME Natiomai. abe.\a.?Rladensburg is fast losing its bloody honors and Washington is as suming them. \ eslerday two belligerent Alex andrians came to this Hty to settle their differen re-. and, selecting a spot in the Smithsonian grounds, hammered each other to their hearts' content. The Auxiliary Guards started in that direction to arrest them'; but ere they reached the spot, the flsticuflWs had settled their affair of honor, and were walking amicably away arm in arm. They were perfectly sober; and. previous to the fight, genteelly dressed ; but, as might l?e supposed, emerged from the conflict with their costume* considerably disarranged. After all a fight with nature's weapons is not so utterly in defensible as one wiilt the murderous pistol or bowie, but, pray gentlemen, have you no vacant ground in the vicinity of Alexandria appropriate to such affairs * Please don't desecrate our beau tiful Smithsonian grouuds. FtcHTiSii Crowd ?Yesterday, Francis Davis, Virglnia Topping and Margaret Johnson, colored ladies, 14 peeled "and went into a regular fight. They were arrested by Officer Cooper, and sent to the workhouse for 90 days each. On their way down they undert.x.k to thrash the otficers. Suit and Cooper, who had them in custody. This was a gauie n which allcouid take part, and they found the oflhers w.-re most expert at it. After a few lessons, pugilistic, they were induced to go quietly along ?

The opinion of the members seemed to be Very generally in favor of the report, and it was adopted by a large majority.

Criminal Co vmt .?Yesterday the riot caw at Gerbardl'n was np before the Court, and the fol lowing jnry w?a empanelled upon It: Thomas D. Laruer, James B. Ho] mead, N. Boyd Brook*, <i. D Spencer, William B Sothoron, John B. Da vidson. Horatio Nater, Samuel Hansen, Patrick G. Murray, Tbodore Meade, Nathan Hammond and James Espy * Messrs RatcliflV and Martin appeared for de fence. The evidence elicited wa? much the same as that brought out upon the trial of Gerhardt for the homicide of Shoult. The case was submitted without argument, and the jury, after a short ab sence returned a verdict of guilty on the second count in the indictment?that of an aflrav. The Court called the accused parties, WilliamYaylor, John Hall and Frank Elliot up, and. sentenced them to imprisonment in the county jail for a term of three months and to pay a fine of *>10 each. The Court then adjourned. This morning, the case of Robert Cross, in dicted for assault and battery with intent to kill Officer Thomas H Robinson, of the Sixth Police District, on the 30th day of June, 1957, was taken up. Chilton and Martin for defence. In consequence of the illness of Judge Craw ford. the Court did not yet to business before 11 o'clock The following are the names of the jurors who sit in the case, viz : Messrs. Abraham Butler. A. Lewis Newton, Oeo. M. Sothoron.Thos. J. Wil liams, \Vm Van Riswick, James Fulalove, ?< raphiin Masi, Thos. D. l.arner, B E. Getting*. James M. Taylor. James Barnes, Ed. II. Edelin. The witnesses for the United States called are Messrs Wm. Harper, Bernhard Donellv, J as. H Suit. Franklin Bl khard, Dr. Dnhatro 1. Charles Frankenburj;er and Cant. Baggot. l-'or the de fence thev are Messrs. Bemegious Burch, Chas. Painter, John H Wise, Frederick Plaster. Sonny Stewart, Jesse Jenkins, and Franklin Birkheaa. Mr. Key opened for the United States, giving in briel' a history of the case, stating that the ac cused had drawn a pistol and shot dangerously the officer who was in the execution of his duty in arresting the defendant, then a fugitive from justice. He was followed on the part of the defence by Mr. Chilton, who said that he admitted that, iu a cursory view of the case as stated by the coun sel for the United States, it would soem that the defendant had a poor ca?e; lieexpectcd, however, from the knowledge of some facts of which he had been apprized, and which he expected to prove, to make out a case for his client. The charge against the prisoner was that of shooting an officer in the discbarge of his duty; he said the shooting was nothing, but the intention to kill was the main point; that unless the jury could tind facts in tne evidence to show the intention to kill, they could not bring in a verdict against the defendant on the charge; that the prisoner, when the officers attempted to arrest him, asked them to show their authority for making the ar rest; that they refused to do so; and that, under these circumstances, the defendent resisted them they not showing any authority, the warrant call ing* for his arrest then being a mile oti' in the hands of another officer, and who was the only proper officer to make the arrest. Mr. C. is now speaking us this report closes. The Excvrsion Row Yesterday.?There are various reports in circulation as to the occasion of the atfray at the steamboat wharf Monday, of which one is given in our river report, and another is that it originated all al>ont a pitcher of milk which one person snatched from another, and which discourtesy was resented by a blow at the time, and afterwards caused the great row. Of the following facts we are assured by an e\e witness. The aff ay took place, not upon the boat, but at the Washington wharf upon the ar rival of the first return boat at (i o'clock. p m. But four members of the Western Hose coinpany we;e present, (the remainder of the company be ing at the White House.) and they, though they exerted themselves to the utmost, were unable to stop the tight. Not one of the parties with whom the difficulty originated belonged to the Western Hose company. We learn that this company (Western Hose) have resolved to enter upon a full investigation rf the matter, and to bring the parties criminated, whoever they may be. to justice. Beware ! Mad Doss Aboct '?Two mad dogs were killed in this city to-day?one in the vicin ity of the Northern Market, and the other in the rear of Mr. Wm. Tucker's Tailoring establish ment. on Pennsylvania avenue, between Four and-a-half and Sixth streets The latter was a pet dog but showed such unmistakable symptoms of hydrophobia, that its owner was compelled to have it killed It is feared that these dogs may have bitten a number of others. Carelessness.?Property owners who leave their doors and shutters insecurely fastened can only blame themselves if they sufl'er loss. Last night, the attention of persons passing was at tracted to a store where the shutters of the win dow had l?een so carelessly ple.oed that one had fallen out upon the sidewalk, and the rest were leaning out so that a touch would have thrown them down.

The exhibition passed off very creditablv to both the teacher and his pupils; the boyrs one and all, who participated in the exerefnes, ar quitted themselves to the entire satisfaction of the entire audience, who frequently gave evideuce ot their appreciation of the efforts of the you ng ora t ?rs by loud and low; applause At the clo>e of the exercises a large number ot handsome premiums (books' were bestowed upon the most proficient among the boys, as well as those whose course during the year had been characterized by good conduct.

Esq , after which tbe School was enter tained by Mayor Crawtord in a abort but pleasing ad.tress, and they were dismissed until the fi-st Monday in September. Probably it is proper to inform our citizens that 011 Friday the 3d Inst, a message was transmitted by Mayor Crawtord to tbe City Councils, asking an appropriation to <-l<aa*e and lime tbe streets, and to d>*stroy the thistles. Ac . on the vacent lots and elsewhere, but owing to the press of busi ness aud other causes the Councils have uot acted upon the subject. The Mayor ha* wisely condemned the canal bridge immediately on the west side of the mar ket. and oidered it to lie cloned This is tbe bridge to the rotten aud unsafe condition of which the attention of the canal company ha* been so often called through the columns of tbe Istar. We hope the cannf company will take immediate ?tejis to rebuild it, as the absence ot a safe passa ble bridge at this point subject* the public to tuucb inconvenience. For Ihe last two day* our lower wharves have present.-d quite a lively appearance with rivet and bay craft discharging cargoes of coal, wood lumtier. Ac . to W H. Godey A Co . IMckson.
