LOCAL 1WTBLL18EWCE. T?* Xtw Dont ?Stnco the work on the new dome bu boon returned great progress baa born made by tbo bricklayers and iron workers. The wall has been filled up between tbo heavy east 1roa brackets to the top, and some of the plinth* forming the base of Ihe heavy iron columns have l>een fitted in place ready to receive the columns. The immense pilasters have begun to arrive at the works from the manufactory; and prepara tions are being iirwie to commence putting them up by the first of neit week. As fast as they go up, the columns will follow, and before the sea son closes, there will be a sufficient number of them up to give the spectator an idea of the grand proportions of the dome when it i* completed. The drawings for the first section are about com pleted, and will furnish a sufficient amount of ' woj-k to occupy the hands through the next en tiro working season. It is expected that the drawings will go into the hands of the founders some time next week. The wall on which rests the massive weight of iron composiag the dome, is laid In hydraulic cement, which, when dried, becomes as hard as the brick itself, and between every other course of brick lock strips of sheet iron are taid in the wall and lapped at Ihe ends to prevent any possibility of the work crackta?u or ?threading apart It is estimated that when the Ironwork is all put up, the weight wblch will rest on the wall will be on* hundred pounds to the square Inch, scarcely a tithe of what It is ca pable of bearing. The corridors to connect the wings with the main building are being ereeled with all convenient dispatch. The second story of the walls is more than one half erected, and the marble workers are called into active requisi tion to trim and place the blocks in their appro priate places. i ? Tax River ?Early this morning a great flight of wild pigeons were seen extending over the river, and the Virginia shore, as far as the eye could reach Sportsmen were out in all direc tions, popping away at them, and many were shot. They first made their appearance on the Virginia side of the river above <?eorgetown.and took a course across to the Washington side; v hen near Alexandria, fairl)Wlarkening the at mosphere by their numbers. They finally disap peared, going in the direction of the Eastern briatb.

"The salary attached to the office,*' he says, '? is utterly inadequate to afford a comfortable home for my family at Washington, while in at tendance on the Court there, and to pay my other necessary expenses There has not been one year since I was in office that I have not expended my entire private income, and some years I have ex* reeded il; and certainly you will agree that at Washington 1 have not lived extravagantly. In. deed I have lived in such a way as neither my family nor myself have ever been accustomed to; and I must be allowed to think In such a way as is not consistent with the dignity of the office 1 Lave held." This is rather appalling intelligence to those lu Washington who kmre to live somehow on a dol lar a day or lew.

Th? meeting of our cltliens at Forrest Hall laat night, called for the purpose of dlscnaetng the propriety of oar Corporation subscribing ?906,000 to the stork of the Alexandria, Loudoun and Hampshire railroad, wax tolerably well attended, Jos N. Fearson, Esq., wu nailed to the chair, and Jenkin Thomas, Esq., appointed secretary. The proposition was advocated at aeme length by R. Otild, Esq., of ourclty. and Mtun. McKen ne and Funsten, of Alexandria, and opposed by MetMra. A. Ilyde. Dr. Mann, and Chas. Stitnmer. At 10^ o'clock, on motion of \V. H. Tenny, F.sq., tlie meeting adjourned to meet at the name Saee on next Monday evening at 7 o'clock, when r Tenny has consented to address the voters of the town in favor of the enterprise. From present indications, and we hare taken some pains to post ourself upon the subject, we think it more than likely that the proposition will be carried by at least a two-third vote, if any thing like a full vote of the town shall be pollen. We regard this project as one of vital import ance to the future prosperity of (ieorgetown, and think it is the solemn duty of every man who may desire to nee Georgetown take her proper po sition among the comineicial cities of the Union, to consider the matter well before they cast their votes against this project. We have endured the iron reign of eld fogyism, we think, just about long enough A most villanous piece of conduct was perpe trated by a parrel of colored youths, near the cor ner of Montgomery and Dumbarton streets, on Wednesday night last The partieis alluded to made a violent assault on a young white man by the name of Williams, with stones, several of which struck him about the head, inflicting some two or three dati?rrous wounds lie was taken to his home, where he lay in a state of insensibil ity for some thirty-*!* hours. He was, however, by the skiifnl treatment of Dr. Riley, restored to conscionsness. and was yesterday afternoon considered out of danger. j The captain of the canal boat Tifl'av City, ! while in a state of intoxication, fell ott' the stoiie i wall at the canal bridge, near the collector's otflce, yesterday afternoon, and injured himself auite seriously. When taken up, the blood was flowing profusely. lie was taken on board his boat, where he was attended by Dr. Ritchie We would inform 44 Ites'' that we obtained our information about the accident to the Mott Bedell at the Long Bridge from the Captain. If the accident really occurred as 44 Ites" says it did, we regret having charged the drawkeerer with neg ligence. If, nowever, such was the fact, It would have been an easy matter for the drawkeeper to have informed the Captain of the cause of the accident while in conversation with him. His failure to do so naturally led the Captain to be lieve that he was either absent from hia post or asleep. We sincerely hope the police will be on the lookout to-morrow evening when the butter wa gons shall commence arriving on High street. Pemons living in the neighborhood and many of thedealers have complained long and loud against the practice of having on every Sabbath afternoon and ?-vening a regular market at the above men tioned point for the sale of butter, eggs, chickens, Ac. There is a law of the Corporation imposing a tine upon all found engaged in it, and we hope it will be enforced. Business upon the canal continues quite brisk, confined chiefly to eel. Since our report of Wednesday 41 boats in all have arrived ; 37 from Cumberland with coal, and 7 from other points with flour, grain, limestone, Ac The receipts of tolls at I he Georgetown Collec tor's office for the week ending to-day will amount to about S3.000 The following vessels have been loaded with coal at Ray's docks since our last report: Schr.
