L0CAL INTELLIGENCE. The Rite*.?The Georgetown correspondent of the Star,"' in bis letter of yesterday, gives an account of an accident to the schooner Molt Be dell, while passing through the southern draw of the Long-bridge on her way to that port, wLirh throws considerable Manic on the draw keeper. aud very unjustlv so 'Spectator' should thoroughly post himself as to the facts pitching in so strongly to the Injury of a fajtbfnl servant of the public The truth is a* follows : The Belle Haven, as stated. was towing the Matt Bedell to Georgetown. and the draw-kevpers re reiving timely warning of her approach com menced to open the draw, on one side the draw opened as usual, and Mr. Leach, the keeper, after opening his side, and looking out to see if all was iignt, was astonished to And the other side about one-half rolled hack He instantly gave warn ing to the approaching vessel, and next proceed ed~ to investigate the cause of the mishap On looking at the slip, it was found that one of thw rails ?f the carriage was broken of! and cocked up. and the wheel had run against the obstruc tion, and stuck fast. The vessel being quite near ran agarn?t the slip before shecould be hauled up, and was slightly injured in her lower rigging The rail breaking just at the moment when the draw was being opened, no blame can be attach ed to any one in the matter. Mr. Leach sent im mediately to tli? iron founders for a new casting, which is being laid down to-day in place of the old one. This morning * dense fog lay over the river, and up tu 9 o'clock the mail boat bad not made her usual appearance at the wharf She was due ?t 4 o'clock this morning. Neither of the steam bota* plying between our city and Alexandria had left their respective wharves up to the hour sta ted above; and the fog seeming determined to resist all the uiist dispelling efforts of old Sol, Lugged the river's surface with an appearance of resolute resistance, which put that luminary ef fectually out of countenance for a period of seve ral hours Some four men, belonging about the wharves, came up the river this morning from a day's skirting at "Hog Island." bringing, as the re sult of their labors.7 dozen or'.olan. 12 partridges, 1J woodcocks. I pheasant and three pair of blue wing. ? There are some Jti> long boats now plying on the river bctweeu the thiee cities and various points on the*bores, their trade I?eing principally confined to the tiansportation of wood. some Jew t>eing engages! in conveying sand and lumber. The amount of cord wixkI which comes up the river during nin? mouths of the year contradicts the notion that fuel is getting scarce on the Po tomac. The l>oats coiue from out the numerous river creek* in Heel*, and dispense the fuel iu all directions, not more than one-half of which comes up the river As one passes down the river large piles of split w.kmI are seen at the mouth of every creek, corded up for the northern marke* Vesaels take it to Baltimore, Pbiladel rhia. New Y oik. and even to Boston iu returning rom the District cities. On yesterday some 3Uf co-ds of wood arrived in our city canal from the lower river during the day. Othfllo's Occcpatiox Go.ik?The Wash ington wood sawyers will have to hunt up other occupations. The Messrs. Gait A Brother, coal and wood dealers, have purchased the right of ashington for one of Bonner A Cowover's pat ent wood-sawing and splitting machines, which they have set up in the building adjoining the tlour mill of Mess's Duncanson & Coltuian, when they have it in full operation, sawing and splitting through hard knots with th? facility of a table knife through a GosLen cheese, requiring the constant attention of two men at each saw to satisfy its c.avings This machine^ like every other improvement to which steam is made sub servient, tends to cheapen the price of wood, and has many concomitant advantages The cord of pine wood of the ordinary length of four feet, costs, to have it cut by the ordinary process. G2k cents per cut: that is. if sawed twice it will cost *1 Vo |H?rcord, and extra pay for having it badly split, to say nothing of the impracticable piecc's one always buys of which no use can b? made. So the cord of wood costing W) will cost 81.25 for sawing and an extra dollar for splitting?ma king the cost of purchase and preparation amount tu ?T *5 per cord The machine performs the work in much bet ter style a' a saving of seventy-five cents per cord Besides the saviug in price the purchaser receives good wood free from knots, everr stick of which can be used in the stove. One man at the ?w. with a boy to feed the splitting machine, can prena'e. In the ordinary working day, fifteen cords of wood for the stove. The wood passes trom the machine to a conductor which conveys it to the second story of tue building, from whence It is d'opped by means of a trap-door into the c .rts to be hauled away. The Messrs Gait in tend to ose this machine exclusively forthelrown customers, and on the cash principle entirely. The machine is driven by a fifteen-horse-power engine from the inaiiufactory of Messrs Ellis & Brother.

Corrttptmienct ?/ Tkt Star. Giokgxtowx, Oct. 9, 1857. An article in a New York journal relative to the high prices demanded for the necessaries of life is very applicable to the state of affairs in our city at the present time There isoneexcuse to be found for onr dealers, however, that cannot be pleaded to the same extent for any other com munity Three-fourths of the paper currency of the District is. and has been for many years, of a depreciated character. Tradesmen, therefore, Sener&lly have l>?en compelled by necessity to enip.rid rather more than reasonable profits upon their goods to enable them, without loss, to meet the rates of discount upon the depredated fund* when exchanging it fur bankable paper. At the present time this difficulty bears with almost crushing force upon all classes of our citizens, j There is a remedy, however, which we think might be applied that would certainly rid us of the evil, and tend in no small degree to reduce the exorbitant prices which are in many instances charged for the necessaries of life. At least, would strip all who might endeavor to keep up the present rates of prices of all excuse for pur suing siirh a course. Let the dealers, and the people generally, resolve that the)' will receive the notes of no bank for anything more than they will command in gold and silver. The matter 1 will at once be equalized. The mechanic and laboring portion or the community will not be requited to pav ten per cent, more (the difference between Virginia money and gold and silver) for the necessa'ies of life, because retailers could afford to sell for the ten per cent, less profit. If this course was generally adopted, we verily l?o lieve that it would require but a very short time to give us a much better currency than we now have, and reduce the various articles of living to a much lower rateof prices than we are now pay ing We are pleased to learn that Mr. J. McIIenry Holliugsworth, the former efficient assistant col . lector of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal office in our city, was yesterday elected collector, to (ill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr. Win. Mathews. Mr. TI has heretofore served in several important positions elsewhere, with great satisfaction to those whom he served, and credit to himself, lie was a lieutenent of volunteers during the war with Mexico; was one of the del egates that foiined tlie constitution of California in ls|!>, and afterwards l>earer of despatches from Bri"adier General Kiley, then military governor of California, to Adjutant General K. Jones, in Washington. In these despatches General Hiley, when speaking of Mr. II.. uses the following language: "Mr Ilollingsworth has proved him self a faithful and trustworthy officer, ami merits in evety respect the confidence of the Govern ment." We have no doubt but that the atl'airs of the otlice to which he has been elccted will be managed witli prudencc and fidelity. ?>. ? - ? ? ? ? ? - The Ship J. t'. Thayer. CorieiyoHdtHce oJ~ The Star.
