L 0 f AL INTELLIGENCE. Os * t. atk visit to the n-ighborhood of the (anal Mwrfii 12th an<l llth streets. ?t were fl^li^hl'd to witness the activity and enterprise exhibited in that locality It would scarcely he believed by some of our citizens (many "f whom recolle? t thin place only a* a marsh and fishing ground) that it is now < overed with workshop*, mill* manufactories, Ac.; ami where, we f>e lie?r, there is more laltor mid productive capital employed than in any other pait of the District, of tbe same area To give an idea of the improve ments. in part, wr note, first: Coyle A Brother lias an extensive lumber yard, connected with which l? a large Planing, tonguiiig. and grooving machine (Beardsley's patent) driven by a thirty five horse-power steam engine; next, we have the old-established firm of Ager A McLaln.en M(NI in the same business, with a thirty-live norse steam engine The*e gentlemen were among the pioneers of this neigh1>orhood, having built their factory for makiiij; sa>h, floors. A.c., upon a pile foundation. Adjoining, we have the s?e.?m engine and machine establishment of F.11I* A Brother?connected with which is done all kinds of castings, some of which we observed at the door ; and the character of which, we under stand. will compare with any done in this coun try In looking through this bee-hive of iridns t-v. we noticed an extension of their casting shop ? o double the sue of it* former dimensions. Fur ther on, at a distance of fifty yards, we come to tl.e beautiful and capacious flour and grain mill of Coltman A Duncanson. This mill is driven by an elghtf-hor?e power steam engine, runs six pair of burrs, and is doing an excellent business. I'o give a full d'-ftcuption of this alone, would occupy a much longer time than we have to-day. Adjoining this mill Is the new concern of Tru- i man A Draper. driven by a beautiful engine, the one. we believe, that kept in motion the machine- I iy at the late .Mechanics Institute Fair. Here is, indeed, a most complete shop for making mould ings. doors, sash, and all kinds of sawing, plan ing, and fine ornamental work, used for build ings?done !n a most incredible short space of Ume by machinery. .Next, we have the carpen ter shop of Ham t. driven by steam, as we are informed. While, to add still more to the fac'il ? ties of the place, we have our old friend, Com missioner Wise, with his steam-dredging ina i hine. raising a wagon load of inud from the bed of the canal every minute, and depositing it U|K>n scows built for the purpose?to witness the per Ject operation of which was worth our stroll. In f.* t, nothing lias given us more pleasure, as a cit izen of Washington, than to liehold these unmis r <kable evidences of the steady advance of our city. * Yocxg Men's Christian Association ?The regular monthly meeting was held on Monday evening at the rooms.

It was stated by The president that not a dollar of ?he funds of the assoc iation bad ever been paid f> defray traveling or other expenses of delegates to i onveiitions. The list of members was read and corrected preparatory to publication in the annual report for l-.'rfi. which had not l?een printed l?eforc for j ant of funds. The report of the committee on periodicals was | adopted. It was decided to *iit>scrit>e for the ! New York Observer, to be sent to the Kdinburgh | Vonug Men's Association. In exchange for a val- j '?aide r?:ij>er published there c alled 4*News of the ? "hnrcnes Several new paj?ers were added to th" list of those now taken at the reading room, and the d? termination was expressed to make this feature of the association more attractive than ever. Mr Langdon then addressed the meeting, giv ing an exceedingly interesting account of his visit to ?he V<?nng Men's Christian Associations in <jr*?at Britain and Ireland. Fiance, Prussia. Bel gium Holland, Switzerland. Ac Kverywhere he iMd i>een received with the greatest attention ^?id kiiidness, and had derived much valuable information respecting their o|>erations. The Hoard of Managers met after the adjourn meiit of the A-?coe lation. and elected several new members, and also elected It T Morsell, Ksq , recording secretary, in place of Mr. Ott, who ft ^.gned on account of other engagements. The River.?Since the completion of the re pairs on the Long-bridge, the travel over it has bten immense. The farmers, along the adjacent i "unties of Virginia, are pressing forward with their plentiful c rops for the market; and the con s- iiieuce, it is hoped, will be a corresponding fall in the prices of vegetables.

Hold Yor r Hoa'c !"'?Some of our ofiicers, we learn, do not always choose to enforce the laws relative to harks and hackmen because, in their opinion !he provisions are unnecessarily se vere. This, we should think, wasa point for the law-makers to dec ide and not for the enforcers The 7th Sect ion of the law of IrPJ requires that the di.ver ??shall sit ou his seat, or stand near there to. with the reins in his hands." The violations of this law are persistent and are seldom noticed. Yesterday, a colored man, T. Bush, was arrested for such violation, and was fined si and costs. The otfl< er making the arrest was averse to doin? ' but the complaint was made and he had no aH ter native. Another driver.

J. At LkabT five thousand persous should l>e on hand to participate in the Columbia Lodge ex ? uniion to come off Tuesday, the 4th of August. Ante-mortem Examination.?Some time *S?> if will be remembered, a singular case ram* up In the Richmond. Va , Courts, in which a youn/ man named Lipscomb sued another young man named Thos. Linton, for breach of promise. Linton, it seems, wan of such remarkably fem inine appearance that his friend* easily persuaded Lipscomb that h? w*? a female in disguise, and so enamored did he become of Linton as to ask and receive a promise of marriage, which, of course, the latter was unable to fulfil. But on attempting to explain why he could not "come to time th** fond "lovyer'' wouldn't believe a word of it. and full in the belief that bis enamorata was a woman, and nothing short, he sued for breach of promise. The case cieatcd no little excite ment in Richmond. An examination by five experienced physicians was ordered by the court, so that there should be no possibility of mistake, and they reported that Linton was undoubtedly a man; so Lipscomb lost both his ladye-love and bis lawsuit. Linton has recently arrived iu this city, and snch was his womanish appearance that suspi cion was created as to his Hex. and the Guards were about to arrest him, and would have done so but for the interference of a person who knew the young man Last night Linton again got into trouble, through falling into the hands of a party of young men who believed him to be sailing under false colors, and were al>out to have an ex amination to test the matter. A gentleman cog nizant of the history of Linton happened to be present, and upon his representation Lintou was set free. Feminine lieanty would seem to be anything but a desirable gift for a man. Improvement at the Arsenal ?Major Bell has just had completed in the Arsenal Grounds a great improvement in the way of a mammoth cistern, capable of ront.ilning some 30.000 gallons of w.ifer. Its site is in the centre of the Ground*, and at their highest elevation. The cistern is constructed in the most substantial manner, the bottom being composed of two layers of flag stones, each of six inches thickness, making one foot of solid stone masonry On this foundation is laid, in cement, two tiers of brick. The foun dation thus constructed can never give way. The sides are built up with care, and are coated over both inside aud outside with several coats of im perishable composite, making the structure im pregnable against all attacks of frost or other de structive agents. The water which supplies this cistern comes from the slate roof of the main arsenal building, and is conveyed to the cistern by means of two water pipes attached to the drop snout of the roof. The amount of water obtain able from the above roof in one year amounts to Ilr.OOl) gallons, or almost four times the amount necessary to till it. It is arranged with an escape valve, which, when the water rises above the re quired height in the cistern. Is forced open and throws oil' the superabundant supply without detriment to the cistern. The water in the cistern is kept pure and cool by a running stream around its base, and protected from the admission of all impurities by the capital arrangement of its top elevation ; is adapteu to every use about the quar ters of the officers and soldiers, and far superior to the stale pump water which comes from the low. marshy wells about the place Cextrk Market ?The supply morning this morning was ample and of good quality.

I'nder the superintendence of the Commissioner of Pub lic Buildings the grounds are now bein;; laid oil ami graded; the grade will be an inclined plane from the surrounding streets toward the line of the canal, with flag runs at proper distances to carry oil' the water. The whole Armory Square is to be surveyed and planted with beautiful sil ver maple shade trees this Fall. The grading will be completed by the first of Octot>er; and the space contained within the grounds will l>e suffi ciently large for Light Artillery practice. The improvements which are being made are calcu lated to beautify and adorn that portion of our city, which has always ticen too much neglected. The new Armory building Is undergoing a fin ishing process, under the active superintendence of Major Bell. The exterior portion is now re ceiving a toat of paint, at the hands of Messrs. O'Brien A Scott, while the inside work is being rapidly closed up; the carpenters' work Is nearly all done, aud the workmen expect to have the building completed, inside and outside, by the first day of Octolier next The new building has three principal floors, and is arranged so as to furnish the very best accommodations for our volunteer military.

The practice of the above named physician^ is de voted exclusively to treating Diseases of the Tin oat and lames l>v .Medicated Inhalation. The success which has attended their mode of treatment sinoe its ml redact ion into the I "it i ted States, has been gratifying in the extreme. It has demonstrated, that not only can Catarrh, Bronchitis, Asthma, and Granular Sore Throat, lie permanent!) cured by this means, hnt that. Consumption in oil its stages, is per fectly amenable to treatment. By Inhalation the remedies are brought indirect contact with the diseased organ, and the stomach (always over taxed in these diseases* is spared th? infliction of Ihmiik drugged, without any earthly benefit arising from such useless practice. This mode of treatment is so rational, so simple, so sci entific. anil at the prime tune, so efficacious, that the day cannot l?e far distant, when it u ill l>e universally adopted by the Medical Profession,as ilie only an chor of safety in a ciassof maladies which have hith erto set ai nought human means. That the old practice does nothing for Consump tion, is well known. Tins has been proved by its universal failure: and, while its advocates cannot point to a single t ase of recovery under its inf - enc,e,every town, ever, viliago, where tiiepnict.ce of Inhalation has been used. Iiears testimony to its inestimable value in restoring the most desperate cases to perfect health. Nor is there any thins sur prising in this. Why should Consumption be nn in curahle disease when tiio natural tendency ol tuber cle is towards health? The simple leason is, that heretofore there has been no method devised of reaching the seat of the disease; but tins difficulty is now overcome, and Consumption becomes no more fatal than other serious maladies.
