LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. As Agc?l>? ?t thi ?aiTH?o*l*:i ?Tbe Smithsonian Institution is soon to possess a new and highly interesting feature, viz: a marine aquarium, or as it is sometimes termed, a "r>arlor fl?h pond.*' bein^ a gia^s rasr or tank of salt wa ler. containing a collc? tiou of mariuc plauts aud animals. The tank has a marble floor and glass sides, l'pon the flnor is deposited a foundation of sand and j>ebhle?, and upon this is placd rock-work disposed in grottoes and miniature rnrerns, where such marine animals as avoid the light can shelter themselves. Points of the rook are allowed to projrrt atiove (he water to recomino d-ite the amphibia when they choo. c to takv an airing. J*ea-wred and other marine plants are set o.it in miniature forests. and then the ?ra w iter having been introduced, the equariutn is ready for its occupants. Not the least interesting feature of the aquarium is the maimer in whir a earh department is made to minister to the wants of the others, inan endless circle of good offices. Taking sdvantageof the known fart that plants im mcsrd in water and exposed to the action of light throw . fl oxygen gas, an English naturalist by the name of Warrington tried the experiment of snp plving axygen to fish in a glass cloln; by the in troduction of growing plants This succeeded; but, after a time, green vegetatiou began to accu mulate on the sides of the vessel, f-otn the decay rf the leaves of the plants. To remedy this, .Mr. Warrington placed snails?first pond snails, and afterwards marine snails, or peiiwinkles?in the water, which, feeding gte-dily on the decaying vegetable matter, restored all to a healthv state; and. moreover, produced an abundance of eggs; which were devoured eagerly by the fish, and were apoarently their natural food. Thus a per fect equilibrium we* established; the plants sup ply ing the oxygen for the animals, and the latter acting as *eavet>?;?*rs to purify the water to make it habitable for the plants. Within a few years the study of marine plants and animals has grown to be a mania in England; and. from an article in the New Yoris Evening P"-.t. Is abont to become so in this country. The Pc?t notices sonar interesting experimenting made the late season at one of the leading watering place*, by a mere school girl, who was theowi.er of an aquarium, and whose custom it was to cull from tl.e ru? ks and sands whatever specimens of an.uta! or vegetable life might add to its attract iveness. While thus superintending her minia ture submarine garden and disposing effectively th?- different features of its scenery, sue had in addition to her skill iu submarine laadscane gar dening. acquired a minute acquaintance with the botany and zoology of her diminutive museum X shepherd enuld hardly know more of his sheep than she of the tiltv herd under her care. All tbe.r habits, their time* of eating and sleeping, and those strange metamorphoses?tb- capricious disguise of insect life?wuich have so puzzled naturalists, were perfectly familiar to her. and when she moved those "silent flocks*'from place to place with her slender gla** tnbe, tliey tnanl f~^t< d not the least disturbance or displeasure; in deed, they seemed so well acquainted with their kind gnaidian as to recognise her steps as she entered the room, and even the timorous minnow would, on her approach to the aquarium, swim hp toward her, and put his nose to the surface as ir expecting something from her hand. The Post ;>tates that the managers of the Amer ican Museum in that city, anticipating the popu lar taste, are about to ex hi bit not le?-s turn twenty aquaria on a large soate, both salt water and fre>h, ami with* very variety of fish, inolluscas, zoophytes as well as sub-aqueous-plants. The cu.zc.is"of Washington, too, through the good otti e.-. of Prof H? nry, will soon have an oppor tn:rty of seeing a most interesting and instructive exhibition of tuis nature The tank is, we be lie\e, completed, or nearly so, and a .Mr Stimp sou, of Boston, a gentlem. n wcil qualified by study and experience, has been engaged to pro cure the requisite plants, animals, rocks, sea water. Ac. A Cextral Xatioxai Race CovR = Bat Wash ington, D. C., is recommended by a coriespond ent of Porter's Spirit of the Times. He urges that this city possesses every advantage in point of locality, and with its growing population, as well as the increasing interest being here felt in Turf performances, a eou e could be established wl.Tch the North, Eolith. Kast and West, would patronise. and in time feel proud of. He adds; " There is al'eudy a course, lately laid ??if, on | tbe Virginia shore. opposite to Washington. I w?s postal at the tune it was laid oh ; audi tbliik a better soil for the purpose could not have beeu ^elected in the f?tate. A Jockey Club is also being fo-med in Washington, at this time If. now. trie Southern Club would only come for ward aud lend them a helping hand, such an In ten could be formed as we all d"*ire. " We want a spot where we can meet the horses of the North, without having all of the travel on our side; and I would say to the South, which Is more deeply interested in this ma tier, take hold of tbe scheme at once, in good curue?t. aud de ft- mine that it shall be carried through.*' ACCTPEXT XEAR THE FoCR-MtLE RlS ?Y>S tCidiy evening, two l;;ds. sixteen years of age, named Wm Gibson and David Bannister, were gunning near the Four-Mile Run. when becom frit? tireil, they lay d-.wri on the grass to rest, lit a tew moments young Gilrson sprang up to shoot a crow that was parsing over, but not l**in'? suffi ciently near h?? returned to his companion bannis ter. holding the gun in his hand, aud was uncock ing the piece when the hammer slipped from his hand, the guu went oil', aud discharged its con tents into tie ri_ht hip of Bannister, inflicting a terrible wound Young Gibson instantly ran to the house of Mr. Frazier. a mile distant, and ob tained a carriage, with which l;e returned and took Bannister to his home. The wounds are considered of a dangerous r haracter, aud but ft;at hopes a;e eule.tained of his recovery.

Biakistoue responded feelingly, and in so doing referred to the revolutionary history of Maiyland. She was active iu the darkest hour of that period, and the lineal descendants of those -who served at Valley Forge were now residents of Leonardtown, honored, respected and beloved by ail. lie was proud to be known as a.Mary lander.

He thankfully ac cepted tb* cane thus tendered ; he would ever preserve it. as a memento of friendship, and as coining froin consecrated ground it should never be raised in anger except against his country's enemies, and then he pledged his word it should no longer be a "still club." He was followed by Wm J. Martin, Esq , who referred in eloquent terms to the day and hour. Afierwatds, with Witbers's Hand, the excur sionists proceeded to serenade their warm-hearted friends, aud at 12 o'clock bade adieu to them and started for i'lucy Point, which was reached about 2 o'clock p. m.

This is the oldest volunteer inilitaiy company in the District ot Columbia. It was or ganized in Septeml?er, l^Tfi, and the history of its organization is rather |>eculiar. Iu the Summer of lsiS. the dir ctnrs of the Washington and Hal - tiino.e Railroad Company extended an invitation to the volunteer companies of the city of Balti more to visit the Federal city. At that time, in the three cities of the District, there was not a single military company to receive the expected visitors; accordingly, a few patriotic gentlemen, among them John Mills, now at the head of our municipal guard, went around, and, iu the space of three weeks, h?d obtained the signatures of forty-five men toward the formation of a new company. These men were organized under Capt. John A. Blake; 1st Lieut Richard France, '2d Lieut. Wm. 11 Mauvo, and ad Lieut John Mills They were uniformed and accoutertd, and made their tl st parade on the 12th of September ot that vear. in just three weeks after the lirst signature was obtained. Since that time the company has passed through many changes of officers. hut has always maintained its character istic excellence as a military company, and is to day. perhaps, the best-drilled volunteer military organization in the District. They have, since th*ir formation, buried twenty-one members in uniform. Their officers and m?n a e all of them gentleman cf high standing in the commu nity. ? The District Survivors of the war of 1P12. in the course of their parade on Saturday, paid their respects to Secretaries Cass. Floyd, and Toutey, by whom they were coidiallv received. Gen. Cass in allusion to the day?the twelfth of September, said: ?'tientlemen. this is the twelfth of September. On the 10th of September, forty-three years ago then in command of the Northwestern army?I w t* sitting in my tent, a postman rode up with a letter to me; 1 broke the seal. What do you think tuat letter contained.' It announced the glorious truth, which will forever be inscribed on the brightest pages of our country's history: 'We have met the enemy and they are ours,' /rom Ol iver II. Perrv. This news spread like lightning, and sent a thrill throughout the entire army,such as it is impossible to conceive. Then came the glorio.is news from Baltimore This added to The gen'-ral enthusiasm and patriotic ardor of the American forces.'' ??
