Corrt*po?dtn't of tk* Star Gtoi?ETow>i, Jan 9,1%*. We regret exceedingly to learn that our es teemed fellow-citizen, Capt Geo. F D? la Rurhe. draughtsman in the Naval Rureau. was stricken down on Mondav uight with an attack of paral\ ? sis, and is now lyln^' at bis residence on \\ a?b ington street in a very critical condition He is under the skilful treatment of i)r Grafton Tyler We are informed this morning that there is but little if auv hope of his recovery. His Affliction is thought to be lb? result of excessive labor. An error occurred iu our letter of yesterday which we deem it light and propt-r to correct John Waters. F.mJ , wa> elected Inspector of Salted Provisions ^nd Gaug?*r of Spirituous l.iquo s, and Wm Laird, sr , K?q . Clerk to the Co po'ation. We ai*o omitted to mention that Mr. John Silence was elected Chimney Sweep We hope that other correspondents who are in the habit of appropriating our items to their own u?e, as in this case, will also make tbe aecesnary co'rectiou. Our attention has just been called to an item in the local columns cf tbe Washington States of December 30, in wbl> b tbe writer doe* great in justice to our city by the perpetration of a most intolerable falsehood The writer says . " We are uiformed fiom sources entitled to be lief, that the small pox i* raging with fatal viru lence in certain portions of Georgetown and the First Ward of Washington It is currently ru mored that iu thefo"mcr place i wenty-flve Itodie* dving from this d<*ease have been lntei red by a simile undertaker." We caie not from whom the writer obtained h's Information, we unhesitatingly proclaim the whole statement, so far ** our city is concerned, a ba*e fabrication, m<inufa<-tured doubtless for the e*pie>s purpo*e of injuring tbe rade of our city, by producing an unnecessary alarm in the minds of the country people, and as destitute ia the main of truth as'tbe author wa* of a knowl edge of tbe matter at?oiit which be wa* writing at "tie time he penned I'. VN e have alluded to this matter mice before, and should not notice it ag-'in but for tbe purpose of contradicting the forego!ug fabncsllon. We hsve taken some pain* to ascertain tbe real faru in tbe case, aud can aasu e the pubii st large that there have not been over twelve c**e* of small po* in our eitv. eight of which prav.d fatal?five white and three colo-ed person*?and the same number of caws of varioloid. At the pre^ot time, we fe? 1 satisfied there is not a case of small pox in the town. There may however, lie one o- two of varioloid, ia ita mildest form If the writer of the article complained of should think proper to doubt our statement*, we can substantiate all we have *aid by certificate* from the physicians and undertaker* of our city We now rej?e*t our former statement, that per sons from the country, ar anywhere viae, nerd sp Erehend no danuer in coming into our city. Our usiness is *nch as to take u* daily Into almoat every part of tbe town; consequently, we bave h?d a fair opportunity to learn tbe res I fart* in the ease; and. a* we have tiefore *ald. having no selflsh motives to gratify, we bare no disposition o' Inducement to misrepresent the facts. f NOTICK All perwHi* indebted to ate, either i?y notes, paat dues, due biila.or of-a noeoants.sre hereb) suliha>< mat 1 shall ex^eot tbem to sar i?? osah oa of brfors th? 1st of Janus'?.
