LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Th* Riv*? ?At the long bridge the country people keep up the marrh of travel, bringing tc tb?<ity the pr?di?cts of their corn and wheat and pig ?tyea- The real old fasbloued mulf team* begin to arrive from fhr-off counties with nork and boga-head-cheeaa. A curioua sight It la to see I'acle Toby astride of a high mountain ol desd hogs. wbwb are piled Into a wagon which resembles more an ola fashioned fishing atoop than anything else. to which la attached from six to ten raw-boned disconsolate mule*, driving . arefulty over the bridge.his bUck face expressing alternate grins of delight at the prospect of a real visit to the city, and daep apprehension thai some accident will befal tin- draw of the bridge, and precipitate his porcine cargo into the muddy tide below. Any one who watches Toby's face for a moment can read aa plain as print that all hit little personal earning.-, for the last twelve months are stowed away In one corner of that wagon. and that the little cash which he expects to receive from his peck and a half of beans, his shoat. and d'ied peaches, will be invested in a dollar a half arr-ord"on for himself, and a blazing cotton handkerchief for Aunt Dolly, his eountry wife The river looks dark, muddy, and very wet. and a thick grave-yard fog spreads over its sur face About the wharves oysters abound Sotne2,0W) bushels are atowed awav lit the pungas which surround Riley's wharf, and the buyers are plentv. Thereare no late arrivals of coal at the wharves The Collyer brought up, on her 9 o'clock trip this morning, 100 bbls of apples, which came over the Orange and Alexandria Railroad yester day The Washington and Alexandria Railroad did not resume travel on Monday as was confidently expected, some little clearing np on the track, which It was necessary to have done, being the cans** The cars will be running, however, In a day or two. At Alexandria, business was dull, and no ar rivals of vessels worth noting. The Great Southern Mail was transferred to the river route on the 1st instant, and work* most successfully, not a failure ro make the regular connections has been experience! thus far, not withstanding the heavy fog* which have pre vailed during the jmst two weeks The railroad track l?etween Richmond and Fredericksburg has l>e*?n relaid, with heavy rail, to within a few miles of the latter city, and cost ing tl?e company some Sl-iO.UiO. and the rent of the route is to be lelaitl at a cost of some SloO.iHKi more. Some ?*?> tons of iron have arrived at Aqma Creek within a few days, for the railroad im provements. The steamer Powhatan has been put in com plete repair, and will be brought to the Compa ny's wharf to-morrow; she will not, however, be put in service until the river becomes frozen. CucciT Cocit.?In the case of A. E. L. Keese. to show cause why he should not be dis missed from hia office, was pending when our re port closed yesterday, the Court decided that Ke?-*e should be suspended for the space of six months, for demanding a reward for the appre hension of parties while knowiug their wherea bouts. The Court averred that when a reward was offered for the apprehension of fugitives from justice, an officer might with propriety receive such proposed lewanl as an incentive to dili gence on bis part. The case in question was where the defendant bad found tbefugitivesfrom justice, and placed them in a position where be could lav his hand* ou them at any time; after which he went to the party interested in the ar rest of the fugitives and said ?'what will you yive for the arrest of >aid partie*?'' The reply fixes the amount; and, on the instant, the officer inide reply that he had the prisoners. The prin cipal then refused to pay the reward, and a ma gistrate's decision compelled him subsequently to pay it to the officer. An appeal was taken, and the Court reversed the magistrate's decision, and inmosed all the costs of Court upon the offi cer. The Court deemed it necessary to make an example of the officer in question, although, as befoie stated, a reward had been offered; but, at the same time, in consideration of his previous good character and energy in ferreting out crimi nals, in many instances, they made the punish ment as light as possible. The Stav.xtox Traoedt.?The body of Wil liam Mullins. the unfortunate man who was shct at Staunton. Va , on the lltb Inst., was on Mon day evening, brought to the residence of his mother on Seventh street. The agonizing cries of the bereaved mother and widow were affecting In the extreme. Mnllins, it will be remembered, was found dead, on Saturday night iast. near the house of Dr. Daniel Downey, the Catholic priest In charge of the church at Staunton. An inqaest was "held and the jury returned a verdict that the deceased was killed by a pistol or gun shot fired by Daniel Downey, who was forthwith committed to jail, together with four witness#-* who were in the Lous*; at the time the affair took place. Downey confesses that he shot Mnllins, but says the deed was committed in self defence. He has a bruise on Lis forehead, showing that he received a blow. When Dr. Downey was found, after the shoot ing. be was lying in his bouse stupified from the effects of laudanum and spirits he had taken, and his mind is now in such an excited state that it Is considered unsafe to allow any one to converse with Lin* We learn that It wa* stated in Staunton on Sat urday night that the deceased had sednced a girl, and that in an interview with him Dr Downey endeavored to induce him to marry her Thia led to an altercation, which terminated in the deaiti of Mullins Cimisil CuriT ?After our report cloned yesterday the ca*e of the United States vs. George Crouse, for assault and battery on John W Hil lery. with iutent to kill, which was then pend ing. was closed, and the Jury returned a verdict of guilty an indicted Lemuel Harris was then called up on a charge of assanlt on Alfred Carter. This case was sub mitted to the Court and bis Honor, npon bear ing the testimony of the prosecuting witness, and ia view of the fact tha; the defendant had alieady been in jail three months, sentenced him to be further imprisoned in the county jail for a space of tbree weeks and pay a fine of f I George English, alias Marian Cond, was then brought up for ait assault and battery on Andrew l.an?well This case was also submitted to th? Court, and English was sentenced to lie impri soned in the county jail one month, and pay a fine of S5 Crouse was nor sentenced; the Court reserving Lis sentence until the pending motion f?r a new tiial in the i asc of Jacob W . Powers shall have be*-n decided. Tunt motion is to be argued before his Honor in a day or two. The Court heie adjourned To-day the Court met at IO o'clock, and the ra*e of Wiilaiu W ilson was taken np, in which the defendant wjs charged with assault and battery on Michael Bowlin, with "iutent to kill, ou tb?- first day of last June The assault grew out of the electiou riots in the Seventh Ward, at the lost June election Cartlngton and Rooker for the defence. The case was concluded ? ud given to tne Jury as our report closed Mm. Philbbicx's Giit Sales, at 176 Pennsyl vania avenue, are in the full tide of successful operation The public properly appreciate the giarefil liberality of a trader who. after selling to his customer a sterling book of poetry, philoso phy. travels, romance, biography or science, to adorn and in?t-uct his mind, accompanies the sale by a splendid gratuity to ornament hia or her person, in the shape of a watch, bracelet, pair of ? leeve-buttons, or some other equally ricn gift. Such a bounty f??r customers argues an expansive and liberal spirit, and of course brings them in throngs Remember, Mr. Pbilbrick dispenses jewels of the first water for the mind, at a most ? rasonable ratv. and jewels for the person, with out money and without price, as an accompani ment A little cash invested at his establishment Is like striking two blows with oue stone. It Siscvlar Case ?In the returns from the east ern lock-up is the name of James Butler, a slave, on suspicion of larceny The case was tried Wfore Justice Cull, and the evidence against the prisoner Was suffi. lent to justify his punishment. By law a slave cannot lie punished except by con sent of his master, and the punishment iii lieu is a designated number of stripes. The order was issued, but when the officer stripped the prisoner to apply the lash, he found his back so filled wtli gun-shot that it would tie iiupotMibte to strike him without punishing him unmerci fully. The fact was stated to the Justice, who dismissed the case He Was shot while engaged lu other mischievous pranks Sipr:.we Coirt, > ksterdat.?John B Bris bin. fl*q , of Minnesota, was admitted an attor ney and counsellor of this Court. .N'os 4 audi*.
