I.OCAI. NEWS. jj^Tm 9*** publishes the List of Letter* remaining in the Washington City Poet Office under the provisions of the Uw directing them to be printed In the newspaper having the largest circulation within the delivery of the office. Its tot* dally circulation Is more than double that of any other Dally printed la the District of Co'umbla. l^r Though Tux Staji Is printed on the festasl sKcra press In itse south of Baltimore, Its edition Is so large as to require It to be put to press at as early hour; Advertisements, therefore, should be sent In before 14 o'clock m.; otherwise they may o? appear until the next day. m m m Nones?District of Columbia Advertisements le be Inserted in the Baltimobb Sr* are received at and forwarded from The Stab Office. Tm* Abmt Hospitals ?The Institution known as theC-s*reet Hospital Is located in two brick buildings (No 360 and the next house on the east), both formerly occupied as dwellings. They are between the Exchange Hotel and Four-and-a-half street These houses sre, in our Judgment, entirely unsuitable for hospital purposes, for various reasons. They are separated from each other by a vacant lot; they are in a crowded locality; the Internal arrangements are bad; the rooms arc small, dark, and badly ventilated, those of the lower floor of the house on the east, especially. The hospital Is for regulars exclusively, and is in cbsrge of Dr 8 H Holden. who seems to have made the moot of the buildings and tbelr surroundings, and by judicious management to have compensated In ? degree for some of the disadvantage we have enumerated The rules for the conduct of the establishment are framed with due regard for the well being of the patients, and are rigidly enforced. At the time of our visit yesterday there were seventy patients in the hospital, mostly cases of sickness. We saw no cases of typhoid fev^r. but many were suffering from acute rheumatism After the battle of Stone Bridge a great many wouuded soldiers were brought In, and the hospital at one time contained over WO patients. Most of the wounded belonged to Griffin's and Rlckett's batteries, which It Is well known did terrible execution, but suffered severely. Most of tbe wounded men have recovered, ana a fvw days since many convalescents were sent to Annapolis. We saw here two men belonging to Rlckett's battery?one of whom bad been shot In the right side, the bullet passing through the chest and out at the left breast; and the other who bad been shot in the neck, the ball passing through the body and out under the shoulder blade, and both were clear of fever and doing well. They complained of a little soreness about the chest, but with that exception s?tmed to be In excellent health. These cases, snd In fact our whole experience In the Hospitals, demonstrates tbe fallacy of tbe popular Idea that gun shot wounds about tbe bead and chest are generally fatal, while wounds In the lower part of the person are not so dangerous We had falleu into the same error, but have now come to a different conclusion Many hopeful cast* of soldiers wounded in tbe bead, neck, and cheat, we saw, but of those wouuded in tbe abdomen and small of the back?and these were many sach In tbe battle?we saw none. The pstlents here, as a geneial thing, seem to be very cheerful aud communicative The floors are clesn, the bed clothing unexceptionable, and the attendants prompt and faithful. We w- re less pleased with the kitcher thau at the other b'spltals It ii small, and tbe s ove. although of mammoth proportions, Is hardly sufficient to accommodate the wants of a hundred men If the hospital here is to be a permanent one. there ought to be a range constructed of capacity enough to furnish meals punctually to the Inmates We lutend no reflection on the officers in charge Our visits to the hospitals were made without prejudice f< r or against the management of either or any of tbein, ard we have been fully convlnccd of one thing, and that is that the officers bereand at tbe other hospitals are doing all in their power for tbe welfare of the patients with the means at their commaud. That Is evident to the most | casual observer, and is proved by the mortality list here and elsewhere Tbe hospital was opened on the 14th day of February last, and out of % patients admitted In February and March, 31 in April, 68 in May, 85 > In June, 95 In July, and 70 In August to this date, making 3f7 altogether, only 4 have died. That Mess House, again?We tman the Government mess house, corner of H andTweuty-second streets, la tbe First Ward, where a man was stabbed, as stated in yesterday's Star, It is aptly named, for there seems to be a "mess" or "muss'' there all the time We are Informed that there was a continuous row there yesterday, from 41 ruddy dawn" till " dewy eve ;" but a close observer, who marked tbe Intervals, says that Is not so; but there were ?tg4x distinct lights In tbe course of the day, "only a little over the average number," he added Tbe usual style of salutation to residents in tbe neighborhood, from those who pass once or twice a day, is: "Well, how many musses slnc? I went by lsst?" in a skirmish yesterday morning, Thos Riley struck Pat McCaullff on the head, iuat above the ear, with a stone, Inflicting an ugly wound, and for a little while Pat was a ' know nothing;" but be soon recovered. As the sun declined, and captain whisky got fairly to work, tbe engagement became general, snd It became necessary to send for tbe military Contrary to custom, a squad of regulars appeared without a commissioned officer at their head, and are said to have behaved worse 'ban] the rioters,who had quieted down when tbe squad came. Tbe soldiers,we are informed, all seemed j to be more or lee* Intoxicated, and the sergeant acted In a violent manner, and Anally ordered his men to charge on tbe crowd at tbe corner; which they did, clearing the pavement in a short timel They then went into tbe mess bouse, dragged a Baltimore ambulance driver from the table, beating him over the head with a musket, arrested six others?Innocent and guilty?and marched to tbe guardhouse with the prisoners, pretty well satisfled with tbelr evening's entertainment If, as the men sllege, the trouble Is because some of them want to draw their rations, let thsm draw them, snd rid tbe neighborhood of a nuisance. The experiment Is worth trying, anyhow, on tbe good old principle of "Anything for a quiet life." l{UALiricATio!<s voB Officbbs ?'The Board recently appointed for tbe examination of volunteer and army officers have resolved upon a standard of qualifications as follows: " Field officers must understand all that Is required of company officers, and also be sble to answer questions regarding evolutions of line, proper conjuncture, the elements of military engineering. tbe circumstances under which the use of field artillery Is proper, and other such collateral Interrogations as the Board of Examiners think proper to propose. " Company officers must answer orally and cor- I rectiy all questions on the manner of Instructing recruits; the use of the manual of arms, the school of the soldiers, tbe position of commissioned and non-commissioned officers In line and battalion movements " It has been suggested to us that whatever examination Is made under this regulation should be entered upon st once In the case of the District regiment now forming, ss when the officers hsve once successfully passed tbe ordeal men will enlist under them with confidtnce. Something Wboks.?TbeschoonerS G. King, which arrived here on Tuesday last, was, as is usual, boarded by Collector J. P. Hilton, who demanded to see her papers Two manifests were produced?one from Baltimore to Richmond, and one from Richmond to Baltimore, both dated April id. but neither properly signed. Tbe officers gave a very unsatisfactory explanation of the movements of tbe vessel, and the matter was referred to tbe Treasury Department. Since Mr Hilton's action in this esse his office on F street bss been broken Into, and his papers looked over, evidently not for plunder, as nothing was taken If the burglars were looking for the papers to relation to the G. S. King they were on the wrong track, as said paper* were not to be found there. A Dmciri Ofbbation, spccbsstvl ?Tbe I generous friends and acqualtances of Mr. J. Fleming, an aged and respectable cltlten, have been rejoiced to see him upon tbe street Mr. Fleming has for a long time been sffltcted with the loss of sight, by cataract Recently, Dr tftone performed the delicate surgical operation of removing tbe cataract from one of his eyes, which enables tbe old gentleman to move about The sight is vet weak, but Improving, snd It ls^ioped that an operation upon the other eye will perfectly restore bis vision Tb eatbb ?Undoubtedly, tbe best piece of acting lately seen In this city was that last night by Bland hd of tbe operatic comedy of "A Roland for an O ;?er ' Bland's 'Sir Msrk Chase" was delight U,,l good, as wss tbe "Fixture" of JHr P?'ker, end tbe "Alfred Blgblyer" of P-Williams, wh e delicious Mrs Henri, aa "Marls Dsrllngb?n," was tbe life of her side of tbe houie ben "A R .tend far an Oliver" Is performed again eder Manager Bland, "may we be there to s^g , Kir im sv a Wei,s ?Joseph Hartt,awatchman st the Government stables In tbe First Ward, wb'le sMempttn* to secures refectory mule yesterday, reoetved a kick on tbe head from tbe mruly brute wM<-t, knocked blm senseless His bead was badly rat over the ear . and when br was taken beano It was supposed ha was fatally la* Jnred, bet be Is quite comfortable this morning (BP Wbi?l?

Itahoald have read: " Wltnea ?aw Murphy'a coat afire from a ptatol ahot "] The examination of wltne?es on the part of the proeecutton and defense closed yesterday. The jury in the afternoon vialted the acene of the homicide. To-day.?The Court after examination of the lnatructlons prayed for by the District Attorney and counsel for toe defence, gave to this Jury substantially the aame instructions as were given to the jury at the former trial. When our report cloaed, Mr Carrlngton waa summing up the case on the part of the prosecution, ana waa alluding to Mr. Bradley's comments on his opening speech. The Jail Casks.?The ease* of Thomas Hitchcock and J. h. Gant, prisoners arrested by the troops in Virginia, were to come up before Justlce Donn to-day. Hitchcock la charged with shooting Federal picket*, hunting down Union men, and other offences. Lieut McLean, of 2d cavalry, waa present and made a statement of the charges: but by some mishap the witnesses did not arrive, ana the case Is continued for a full hearing. Gant was arrested bv Lieut. Waite, of the 6th Maine regiment, near Lewlnsvllle. Gant positively refused the oath of allegiance, and was sent to this city for trial. Ilia bouse Is said to be the resort of the rebels. This case is alao continued for other evidence, which could not be obtained to-day. Commissions!s or Police?The President has appointed the following gentlemen Commissioners of Police for the District of Columbia, onder the act of August 6, 1861: Richard Wallach, Joseph F. Brown, and Zenaa Bobbins, of Washington city; William H. Tenney, of Georgetown ; and Savles J. Bowen, of Washington county, D C They are requeated to meet at the Aldermen'a Chamber on Monday next, to orf anise and proceed to business The Mayors of Vasblngton and Georgetown are tx officio members of the Board. What Their Comrades Sat.?We hear from different camps that the utmost Indignation Is expressed by our soldiers generally at the conduct of the mutinous men of the Highland and Second Maine Regiments, who, by their disgraceful and unsoldlerly course, have shown their want of patriotism at a time when every true man is desirous of serving his country at every personal sacrifice. As one of the soldiers expressed It, with rough energy :?"These d?d sneaks should go down in history on the same page with Benedict Arnold and the Fourth Pennsylvania Regiment." Appeared ?Yesterday, Col. Willis A. Gorman, of the First Minnesota Regiment, against whom the writ of habeas corpus was Issued, as mentioned in yesterday's Star, appeared before Judge Catron, in chambers, and purged himself o? the contempt supposed by his failure to appear at 12 o'clock Wednesday, whirh was followed by the Issue of an attachment. The final bearing was set for Monday next, the 19'h Instant, In IT. S Supreme Court room, upon which occasion L. M. Stanton, Esq., will appear for Col. Gorman. Fire ?Yesterday afternoon about five o'clock, an alarm of fire was caused by the discovery of smoke Issuing froin a frame structure attached to the dwelling of Mr. Whiting, of the Pension Bureau, at the corner of F and Ninth streets The fire was extinguished by the prompt use of the fire plugs, by persons near at the time. The building is the property of Mr C Wood, and was but slightly damaged It is thought the place waa fired by some person. The Provost Guard ?At the station house last niybt the cells were again filled with prisoners brought in by the provost guard, under the established rules for the preservation of order In the city. A large number of soldiers, who had overstaid their time or were absent from quarters without permission, were brought In, to be retured to their regimental officers" Sent to Jail ?George Miller was arrested on Wednesday, byord?*r of Lieut.Colonel I Wistar, fur selling liquor to soldiers.
