LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. RxarxcT to tbk Bravi ?At ?lx o'clock Iaat nitfht, * 1st* number of officers of the Nary ?ad Marine corps met at the Washington Club Rooms to take measure* to pay a fitting trlbuff of respect toCapt. Hermlon. The rh-iirvrat occupied by C om mod ore Shii brick. and Captain.* Rogers and Page were ap pointed secretaries. Commodore S.,on taking the cbalr. announced the purpose of the meeting in some touching re marks They had beer, called together, be said, to express to the country, and particularly to Ibe bereaved family of the deceased, our heartfelt sympathy for the loss of a valuable officer, the lamented Herndon The public papers have already given us an account of the clrcumstanc<*s of this great calamity. We know that Captain Jlerndon left Havana on the sth of the present month with about six hundred passengers on board t>n tl^e 11th he encountered one of those jj ile* which are frequent at this season.and which, on this occasion. Wcame a hurricane, against ?which he contended, usin^ all the resources of our profession When he saw that tbe fatal ?vent wa* inevitable, he met it with lirmness, his first care being for the helpless women and chil dren. Having accomplished this, and when other "wave men felt that they could now make provision for their own escape, he. like Paliiiurti*, with unaltered mood, chose rather certain death than abniidoume it of his post. No human eye witnessed how hefeced the king or terrors The hand of the Aim ghtv has drawn a veil over the Anal scene; but we who knew him know as well a* if we Imd *een It that he met his death with manly Ifrin ami humbl" submission. It is not far me to pronounce his eulogy?that will be d'-ne by tbe pen of talent and the tongue of elo ?iM-nce. The gifted historian, some future oupef, will write his name on the brightest pasp of our naval history It only remain* for us to psy our tribute ot friendship to the memory of the noltlf brave. Captain Jeukins moved that a committee appoiuted by tIk; Chair to draft resolutions ex ? pressive of the sense of the meeting?agreed to; and tbe Chair appointed Captain Attains, Co!. Harris, Purser IVBree. Dr. Clymer, Commander Jenkins, and l.ieut Woodhnll. The committee, after retiring for a few mo menta, retuniflffc with the following resolution*, which woe daammouslr adopted : ' The officers of the navy and marine corps, brought together at the seat of government by va Tious duties, have felt themselves impelled by a ?eomrnou impulse to give some public expression to th? deep and sincere feelings of grief, of sym pathy, and of piofe**ionnl pride, with which they have received the intelligence of the untime ly fate of their late brother officer, Commander \V illiam la wis Herndon. ??In this they arc far from being actuated by the mere sense 01 proprieties or conventional usage. They feel, one and all, the grief and the sympathy which belong to so sad an occasion; bi 11 > them?to those who were bound to him by ties of bloi'd and nature, and to the country, whose faithful soldier and servant he was?there i* a noble and sublime consolation, ar.d an exam pic worthy of all emulation, in the picture of bis btojc descent into hi* ocean grave, in the con acloMsne a '.hat his last duty as a sailor, a, and a Christian had been performed: therefore, 4 Resolvtd, That we, the officers here present, otter to the memory of our late brother the heart felt tribute of our highest approbation, our un feigned sorrow, and the hope that any of us, placed in tbe same trying circumstance*, may be readv to follow so noble an example of fortitude and humanity. " Resolrtd, That a monument be erected at the Naval Academy, Annapolis, commemorative of the circumstances of his death, not only as due to his memory, but to incite to imitation o'f bis noble conduct, and that a committee of seven be ap pointed by the chairman to carry the resolution lato prompt effect. 44 Ktsol. That, whilewe proff-r to tbe widow and daughter our heartfeIt condolence and the as surance of our readiness to maintain in deed the sympathy which we have endeavored to express in 1eord*. we indulge tbe hope that the wives and daughters of all of our professional brethren will co-operate with us in contributing to tbeiu that material aid of which they have been bereft in the Kms of onr lamented brother officer. ?? . Thstacopy of the p'oceedings and of the resolve* of this meeting be transmitted by the chairman to tbe ttereaved family.'* Captaia Adams moved that tbe Chair appoint a committee of seven to carry the second resolution Into p-oper effect, and that the president of this meeting be chairman of that committee ; agreed t<>, ard the Chair appointed Capt . Adams, Col Harris. Purser Lie Bree. Dr. Clymer, Commander Jenkins. Lt. Woodhull. and Commander Steed man And 011 motion the meeting adjourned. Thi River ?The excitement about tbe mys terioaR batteauman and his box. of which men tion was made In onr columns yesterd iy. con tinues on the increase About dark the ai^bt before last. Mr C., tbe wharf keeper at Pace's wharf, saw from that point a man In a batteau leave the ship-yard and proceed across the river iu a mysterious manner. He could not see from the distance at which be stotid. what was in tbe boat; and after our article of yesterday appeared he proceeded to consult with .Mr. B , and last night they proceeded, In company with several gentlemea who were interested in the matter, to cross the liver. Mr. B. being certain that be could point out the spot where the man had laid by on the night of the removal of the article Anslostnn l*land After crossing the river to ?'Gravelly Run,they instituted a strict search for any indications which would ue likely to lead to a discovery ; but after a long search they were obliged togive it up. feeling very much chagrined at their disappointment, not, however, l?efore they found in the long grass 011 the shore of the creek the prints where a lioat bad landed among the thick bushes, but nothing far I he. could lie ascertained with regard to this uha<;romit;tble affair. This morning Mr. II. called at the house of the batteaumaii ami inquired for him, but re ceived the answer from bis wife, who is a very e*t.iiiabJe woman, that her hustuind had gone d wn lite river for a wet k She see mi d very much excited when questioned a* to what busi ness had led to his going away, a* lie is a man w ho L* to lie fonnd at his home when hot em ployed at the wharf, and gave eva*ive auswers to all such interneratorie* as to the cause for bis a invitee. He is believed by many peisous tu lie ? ooceaied somewhere about his premises. Tbe r onjectures aw to what was in the much-talked-of box are a* various as the changes in the wind N'lrip persons believe that it contained a portion ? >f the jewelry stolen from Mr. Adam, ol Alex andria. recently; while others think it contained portions of dead Indies from some dissecliug r?om in Georgetown, and which the man has been employed to convey away.

Justice McKenna w;i* then called in and tais person, who gave his name as Michael Kel ley (probably a fictitious name) was fined *5 and costs.

The police are still actively engaged in ferreting out the robliers, and hope tl?ey may yet be able to recover more of the stolrii pioperty The story about th?* parties being known, and that they could not be arrested, like many other exaggerated reports connected with the alf tir, is without foundatiou ?Atts<iii Irta UaZ'tlr. ??

Ellis, then editor of the '? Organ.'* was so indignant thereat, that be regaled hissub *cril>?r* with two or three col urn nn of editorial matter, complaining of the disingenuous attack. Had Mr. Ellis recollected this incident in his pe snnal biography, he would not have written the letter which was printer! in Mr. Fen ton's pa per last Wednesday. Tbe remembrance of the pain he felt, until that misconstruction had been rectified, would have withdrawn him from a sition which, in the first interval of reflection. he will regret having assumed If his purpose was to propitiate a certain class c?f clients by dis playing, in that communication, his adroitness in suppressing or perverting facts, it is the best rrofessional advertisement be could have issued pity his condition; fo? he seems to have reached that deplorable climacteric, when the mind has lost either the desire or the ability to discrimi nate between truth nnd error. The facts, in relation to the draft from Ala bama, are simply as follow; On or about the 'Jtitb of last August, a draft 011 New \ ork, drawn payable to my order at agent. Ac,, was rereived by me in a letter. I endorsed it as agent. Ac., and it was cashed by the Rank of Washington. Now, what else ought I to have done? It was drawn to my order as agent, and my signature alone could give it negotiable value. Had I |>aid the proceeds to the Boaid after the Hank had cashed it, they would not have telegraphed to New York to protest the draft, but it would have been sucked up. quietly, into tbat vortex whence there is no regurgitation Hut. suppose 1 had taken that course! Even while 1 record the fancy my goose quill gapes wider with merriment, and a beautiful emeraidine hue seeins to suffuse my eye. I affected no concealment of what 1 had done, and without delay mailed the letter, which hid contained the draft, to Vespasian Ellis, Esq , the 1st Vice President of the Hoard, with the fol lowing note: Mr. Ellis?Dear Sir: The annexed communi cation, enclosing a sight check for *40, was re ceived yesterday. 1 have placed the proceeds of the draft of forty dollars to tne credit of the Board on account of the balance due to me for salary un paid. Very respectfully, 8. Y. AtLki. August *21, 1H57. Mr. Ellis never answered this note; and I sup posed, of course, that my proceeding met with the approbation of the Boaid. Mr. Ellis, in his late letter in the American, dame* that anv bal ance was due to me. Such special pleading or quibbling for the purpose of suggesting odium on a fellow-citizen is as ''ungenerous" as the al legations against himself by the Virginia editor, and shows the desperate strait to which he is re duced in his vindication of the Hoard. He heard the report frequently read, In which the balance due to me was stated by a committee specially appointed lo examine my accounts. Hut he is technical enough to deny anything, eveu that Flournov is Governor of V irginia If the Board were displeased, why was 1 not ad vised of their objection ? Why have they allowed a whole month to pass away, and then', without the slightest premonition to me, make it a topic for the newspapers ? If, as one of the surviving quorum, open and decorous dealing was not al lowable, why for the sake of lang svne, and in accordance with his duty towardsa Knight Com fianion of the valiant and magnanimous order of he Unfinished Monument, did he not give me timely warning of tbe approaching danger? Verily St Paul well taught the Corinthians that "evil communications corrupt good manners," and the majority of the Monument Board of 1855 have, by a seasonable withdrawal from contaminating in fluences. manifested a saving faith in the oracle of Tarsus. My resignation as Secretary of the Society was sent to the second Vice President of the Board on the 30th of May, and I have reason to believe that it wits duly referred to the Boa-d: but, up to the present moment, I have received no official no tice that it was accepted. How can the delay be justified? When 1 was elected to inv predeces sor's vacancy 1 was duly made acquainted with the order of the Board, and the piiblic were ad vised thereof through the Organ, edited by the flr-Jt Vice President. The country was thus, at least semi-officially, informed that communica tion to the Board was to be m id", thereafter, through a Dew channel, and this fact was more pirticularly inculcated In numerous subsequent publications. If similar precautions were neglected by the Board after m<j resignation had been transmuted, t iev in ust abide by tbe consequences of their own and they cannot now claim advantage of their own wrong. 1 have never been absent from the city since the first of June, so that there can be no excuse for not serving due notice upon ine Neither has tl ? public been notified by tbe Board of my resigna tion, and of the name of mv successor Howean tbe Hoard explain such remissness? I did not. however, forget their interests, and was. for two or three weeks in June, industriously engaged in discharging certain duties imposed upon me by that body. At the adjourned regular meeting of Tuesday, May 12th las:, the following resolution was adopted: '? H- <olvtd, That the Secretary make out in writing anycharges he may have to make against the Board,'" and, at the ensuing .special meeting of the 21st; my prompt compliance with said res olution was demanded " I lost no time in preparing for my task : but circumstances forred ni*-into resignation before I could lay the result of my labors before the Boaid. I, nevertheless, fulfilled the obligations imposed upon me, and my report was published lo the Stalest and consisted of five charges, viz : that ? 1. Tbe Board bnd perverted the organization whose a flairs they had l?eeii administering to partisan and sectarian purpose*. 15. That they have grossly neglected the inter ests of the Society. 3. That Jhey bavo not kept a fair record of their proceedings. 4. That they have permitted tbe T eisurer to dime^aid, without reproof, his official duty, as set forth in the Constitution of the Society. !i. That they have, niter ascertaining a discrep ancy in tbe flsc'il transactions of au employee or employees of the Society, suspended final pro ceedings; and thus connived at irregularities involving tbe loss of funds, intrusted with |k cullar solemnity, to the enstod/of the Bo nd. I sustained these charges, a* well as I could, from official records; and. as the Board listened t and uttered no sign of dissent, I congratulated I myself that I had, for once, given that querulous quorum unanimous satisfaction. Hut, since Mr. Ellis has entered his appearance as a;torney u for self and associates," soin-: of my late specifica tions may be controverted. It ought to b*i an easy thing for him to do so, for as he wields a quintuple weapon he can spare a pen a piece for the. several charges I see, by Mr. Ellis's letter in the American?a title, by tne way, " eontainine ?? atrocious and nn vnmittgntid ntlMmny"?that said draft has been, by order of the Hoard, protested, and may probably be put in suit! The threat does not in the feast startle me. although four-fifths of the '? sur viving quorum" are at'orueys and couu.sellers at law. In conclusion, I would recommend Mr. Ellis to cease vexing tbe public ear with his cracked "Organ." and, in conjunction with his associates, go to work and finish the Monument by the 22d day of February, l&V.
