LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Naty Ya*d Matters ?A long neglected and much-needed Improvement ha* at length been begun, ami I* being prosecuted towards comple tion inside the yard?namely, theextenslon of the ?astern wall from It* present terminustotfce FMt ern Branch channel. The workmen engaged in 4h?- < xecuthm of the work are driving Iti* piles .ihil -etting the eaj?s for the extended foundation <?( the wall. A good n*rt of the foundation has already been laid, inn ?orae two-thirds of the piles are driven That portion of the yard left ?'j|*wed so lon? will be shortly enclosed and se cure. The old steam engine house, on East Dock, has l?rn moved over near the Ordnance department, to be g??i1 as a ?ti>re room for cement, lime, and other ordnance stores. Th?* Naval store Is the scene of great activity, by i-ason of the constantly increasing amount of arnv/ls of naval stofes, which keep the clerks, ir?}>ectors ajid other olHcials about tne establish ment closely looking after them. The new mach'nc shop is completed with the exception of a portion of the roofing, which woik meu are busily engaged in finishing up. The heavv machinery is now l>eing removed from the old sljop to the new. and in a short space of time the hands will also be transferred. It is much larger and better fitted for htttvy work than the ?>idone. and Is really a nolde building- It will repay the visitor who n?av chance to diop in and inspect the ponderous machinery which has been erected, of a size capable of finishing up any thing that may be requires! in the way of heavy work for our war ships or steamers. In the tank shop the men are engaged in con structing various kinds of ship-taiiks and other work for the other vards^which is sent off a* fast *S manufactured The <%pper-rolling mill is in full operation, rolling cut sheath and bolt copper for the other yards The new shot and shell house. In the west portion of the yard. is going up as fast as the work will permit, and will short* ly be completed. That ol?l target, which has occupied a conspic uous position in the Eastern Branch for so long a time, and has been the recipient of so many shell, shot, and other missiles from the practised gun it-r* at the Oriluauce depnrtjueut, has been re moved to give way to a new one. which is being built of new Material and is designed to stand the heavy hanging it is exposed to at the hands of the gun-practicians at the yard. The nre, which destroyed the house of Martin King, Esq.; a few nights ago, at the Navy Yard, :s said to nave been the first heavy fire which has occurred at the Navy Yard for eighteen vears. The novel if was so great to the Navy Yard ladies that they came running to the spot, as we have it /min a credible eye witness, to the number of It on i seven to eight hundred, many of them, in their haste, forgetting their crinolinian arrange ment*, and presenting u rather picturesque ap pearwnee, by the glare of the flames. Alter the firv had been suhav.ed the firemen were uiuuiS ? entlv treated to refreshments by Dr. Dove, Capt. outli, Tuoirias Champion, Francis Jenkins,and '?ther?, Wbo vied with each other in demonstra line tbHr gratitude to the hardy firemen. Mr. John Baltimore, a watchman inside the Navy Yard, by his single-handed efforts, on the first ?Lx vMfery of the fire, succeeded in saving the lives of all the family of Mr Warner, who lived in a part of the house. All the members of Mr. Warner's family are very deaf, and wonld inev MaWy have perished in the fiames, but for the conduct of Mr. B who beat down the door, ?nd succeeded in arousing them just in tUiie to <?wpr the falling roof. The Navy Yard mechanics are anxiously wait ing to learn the disposition of the new slnops-of war, for the building of which Congress last year m.Kle a heavy appropriation. The commiUru keep dark, but the nope is strong among the men iLdt the building of one of the said sloops will be assigned to the Washington Navy Yard. We hope they will get what they desire, for there are no belfr ship carpenters or machinists than can be found any day in our Navy Yard.

The heavy r.-ins last night kept the disorderly characters confined to their haunts. . Teeth or American* ?American Dentists have won for themselves here and in Europe an enviable repntation. Abroad they are par excel tare, recognized at the head of the profession, and sought for, naturally, in the same way that we would look to a French cook for a good din ner, to an Italian for a good song, to a German for good lager bier, to an Englishman for good roast beef, and an Irishman for good roast pota toes?which the latter unfortunately cannot pro cure. But it is melancholy to reflect that the American disease of over application to business, among other causes, is indirectly sapping our health in this respect, as well as others. A wri ter In the Tribune truthfully remarks : " Unquestionably, the strength and soundness of the teeth of the Americans are below those of Europeans We do not claim any immaculate ex cellence for those of the latter, but compared with the former, they are better. If there were any proof wanting to verify this proposition, it would be found in the proverbial excellence of American denttsts. Here, first the profession w.m fully connected with the study of mcdiclne and surgery, and the beautiful mystery of arrest ing the decay of the ivoryportals of tne stomach recognized as a speciality of snrgery. The cause of the inferiority of American teeth, and the m?nns of giving them due strength, should occu py the attention of every parent, and every one whose age has placed him beyond parents care. SpiBiTCALts*?The Boston Courier, which has been doing good service in citing the folly and dangers of those who adhere to modern ideas of spiritual developments, now says, in explana tion of soma peculiar phenomenon, that ''there are men and women, doubtless, who write these communications from the dead, honestly believ ing that the spirits seize their arms and guide their hands. It is not difficult to acquire this faenlty. The experiment was tried, by a philo sophical thinker, with remarkable results. Scrib bling incoherently for a few days, while his mind was at the same time occupying Itself with a train of connected thoughts, he arrived at a point when his hand moved rapidly over the paper, writing sentences, paragraphs, and whole pages, of which lie had no recollection after the writing was com pleted It la not very sifpr'sing that persons I who "fell Into this habit, ana who are ignorant of | the abnormal action of the mind, should fancy themselves under the influence of spirits external to themselves. But when they find the utter futility of those supposed communications, It in surprising they do not begin to suspect the fal lacy of their belief." A Strajk.? s>krpkst.?Last week, says the Pd'shnrg Daily Union, a g-ntleman residing at California, a small village on the Monongahela river, in Washington county, Pa., discovered in the cellar of Mr. James P. Bailos, a serpent, or something very much resembling that reptile, which, upon close investigation, proved to be composed of animalculae, or myriads of little worms, adhering together by a glutinous sub l stance, and forming the head, bodv and tail of a serjient. in complete symmetry. The snake wns about eighteen inches in length, of a lightish green appearance, and was able to move slowly over the ground. The insects, although adher ing together with considerable pertinac ity, were not difficult to detach, and thousands of them were observable upon the ground in full life and vigor. The Wkstkrs Costixk.nt the Oldest.? The Christiau Examiner, In speaking of some scientific observations made by Professor Peirce, of Cambridge, says: ?' From ?comparison of the forms of the con tinents. Professor Peirce also draws the order of their ophea^nl, showing, for instance, that the Western Continent is older than Europe, and that the Gulf Stream, daring the second day of crea tion, caused the great variety of outline in that coiitiuent." According to the above theory, America Is in the ?? OJd World" and Europe in the New, ex actly reversing our common order of speech. Modern Eloqi'ixci.?A correspondent of the Boston Courier gives the following extract from a sermon recently delivered by a Professor of Harvard University, and asks if students are safe when exposed to such language : ? '? Viewing the subject from the esoteric stand point ot Christian exegetecial analysis, and ag glutinating the polsvntlieticalectoblasbM'f homo geneous asceticism, we perceive at once the abso lute individuality of this entity; while from that other ?taiidpoint of incredulous syntbesle, which characterize the Xenocratic hierarchy of the Jews, we are constantly impressed with the precisely anliperintatic quality thereof." ITT" A man named Grover has been arrested in Denmark. Me., for causing the death of a little daughter of John Blake. Blake's do;; barked at Grover, and he shot the anirual close by the child who was frightened into spasms, and died iu con soquence a fortnight afterwa'd. ?7* A young German woman In Philadelphia named Anna MHster, who was swindling the poorer people a few days since by pretending to lie a daughter of God and the sister of Christ, will be remembered by our readers. Her trial has ended, aud she is acquitted of the charge of conspiracy to defraud, but oidercd to pay the co?ts. ? * JO* A large rattle-snake was caught in Vir ginia a few davs since, and confined in a cage. A cat which had forfeited her right to existence by Mndry depredations among chickens, wa< sentenced to go in on a visit to his snakeship. Of court* a fl?ht took place, which is described as luring terrific. When it ended both animals were dead. Whisky making seems to be the most profitable bus mess carried on in Koutucky.
