It is to be hoped that the regular hours will be strictlv adhered to, as the voice of the whole tiaveling community of the two cities is unani mous on that point, and the two lines will ex perience many advantages from such an arrange ment if the public once is brought to understand that they can pass between the Uvocities at stated times. 1'ainfcl Accident.?Saturday, a voting man named John Boswell, employed in Draper A Truman's planing and saw mill, on Twelfth St., near the bridge, had his hand cut through, sev ering the bones and tL-sh to the iiiin lea on the bark.

A physician was im mediately sent for, and all that could be done for his relief was done, and he was removed to his home on Seventh street, near ??. The physician is of opinlou that the hand may be saved.

The city was remarkably quiet yesterday.

Correiptn lentt ?/ Tkt Star. Gioigiiows, Oct. 5, 1867. Things and matters generally in and about our ccul docks this morning presents quite a lively appearance. Coal boats from Cumberland con tinue steadily to arrive. We learn from a captain just ariived, that there Is, in the neighborhood of dam number fire, a very large number of boats, probably one hundred, duwnward bound. Their progress is very slow owing to the continued de ficiency of water At the present time, there is about fonr feet on the Wiiliaiusnnrt and dam number four levels. Consequently all boats draw ing over that amount are unable to move, and those drawing that amount pet along very slowly, and only by attaching three or four team* to one boat. Every captain we have conversed with upon the snbjeet. are lond in their com plaints against the superintendents upon the ca nal lying between Harper'* Ferry and Williams port. Since our last the following vessels have been loaded with coal for eastern ports : At Ray's Dock. schr Wm L. Marev, Buck, ?1 tons, to Providence; do Brave, Marshall, 'J41 tons, toN. l oik. At the Borden Mining Company's Dock, schooner Mary Patterson, with 3tU tons, for Bos ton. The same gentleman who was knocked down and robbed near the Roundtops. as noticed in the Star one day last week, was assailed again on Saturday night, near the Bridge street bridge, doubtless by the same gang of villains who com mitted the foul deed i#?fore mentioned. After some effort he escaped from his assailants and nea over into our city, hallooing for help, whith er the ruffians pursued. Fortunately for him. however, his cries attracted a portion of the night watch, who hastened to his assistance, and suc ceeded in one of the parties, named John Carr. He was taken to the wateb house, and yesterday morning before Justice R White, ?who held him to bail for his appearance before the Criminal Court. The railroad question which i? to be determined by a vole of our citizens on th?? 13th inst . doe* not as yet seem to attract the first particle of attention No one st ems to take any interest in the matter W e would again suggest the propriety of a public meeting of nurcltizens, and that the movers in the matter enlighten us npon the subject, that all mav vofe understandiugly. It is certainly a matter of too much impor :e to acted upon hastily or in a careless manner. Give us lijrht upon the subject. 1 Our river wharves this morning presented quite an animated appearance.
