BrastaTancn Daro-r.?Pew are aware of tbe Immense amount of provisions dally arriving In t oar city, or of the eitenslve arrangements made < for the protection and storage of supplies. Hon- | dreda have flocked to tbe railway depot to wit- i neaa the arrivals of freight, unconscious of the ex- c lstence of another depot Into which more is pour- < Ing daily than arrives by rail in a week. Tbe I receiving depot for supplies is located at the i Western Wharves, whereabout twenty very large store houaea have been erected and filled, while ? a score of workmen are erecting others aa rapidly < as possible, yet unable to meet tbe pressing de- a mand for atormge room Tbeee buildings are 1 Hied ap at the rate of one and two a day, while a i vest amount of barreled b*ef, pork, Ac., In long a tiers are protected by boards laid over the top. s Notwithstanding the facllltle* for unloading ve* el* here, there are nearly half a dozen constantly waiting their turn, and tug* are pufHng around palling the ves*el* about In a remarkably frlakey manner Thla place la the receiving depot for the ratlona of the troopa here, toeetbe. with oats, bay, and other appurtenance* of military operations. There are here over 3,000,000 ratlona, of which there are 19 (>00 barrels of flour, 9.000 barrela of beef, 3.000 barrels of pork, 500.000 pounds of eoflee, 500 000 pounds of sugar, and 1,500,000 pounds of bread, with hominy, cracker*, vinegar, candle*, soap, etc., In proportion. Immense cargoes of bay and oata are dally arriving, and the yard la thronged with teams loading for the respec tl re camps. Seven large iron boilers are kept buay boiling meat for the troop* arriving at the depot and other place* prior to their permanent location in camp. Several large schooners are discharging Ice Just below the storehouses for the hospitals snd camp*, and three or four coal vessels add to tbe forrest of masts and rigging at the wharve* Notwithstanding the enormous amount of provisions collected here, there Is little or no waste, much le?* than at the railway depot, and visitor 1* struck with the order and system with which everything Is done. There is little f the shouting and confuaion usually among temmsters, and contrary to the custom elsewhere, when a bale of bav or sack of oats is set down It remslns there until removed by the proper authorities. A Dovbl* Rckawat.?The team of horses in a ocvernmeni wsgon ran away near tenaiiyxown yesterday evening after dark, and frightened ! Mother team which they passed Both came ] from Tenallytown at foil speed?It is nearly two , miles, bat ' dowa hill" all the way?and dash>d down High street, in Georgetown, at a fearful < pace, scattering everything in their way The first one turned off at First s*reet, but waa brought to a stand by aome obstruction, before going far , Tbe driver and one horse were missing, and neither horse nor driver had "turned up" last night at a late hour The wagon and remaining horses sustained no damage of any consequence. | The second team continued Itacourae to the corner of High street, the driver keeping his seat and preserving hia presence of mind. Finding their speed Increasing, he pulled his horses towards Tenney's corner, where they just grazed the lamp post, and the wngon struck the drinking hydrant, which brought the team to a stand attlt. The ' damage to the wagon waa alight, but the hydrant J was knocked out of place and considerably dam- ' aged The escape of the driver was miraculous, and his management is deserving of praise Two or three omnlbnaes were on the stand, and but for the sctivlty of Mr. LiKlejohn in hurrying them . off when he saw the runaway approaching, there might have been considerable damage. Thi Lincoln Cavalet ?The Bait. American, In noticing the Lincoln Cavalry, says: Tb* command numbers 1,500 men, of whom only 900 arrived yesterday, one company of the regiment being In Washington. The uniform consists of dark-blue cloth jacketa and pantaloona, both trimmed with yel.ow cord, and a regulation bat. The regiment is composed of Americans. Irish men and German*, who are all hirdv men. i Tbe oSrera of the regiment, so far a? they have been appointed, are Col. Andrew J. MrReynolda, J Lieut. Col Count Afoltkl, Adjutant Jason BattersJy, Chaplain Rev. Dr. Cbaa. Relgbley, Surgeon C. Elliott, Quartermaster E. H. Bailey, Ald-deCamp P. C Adams, and Captains Ogle, Hawkins. Todd. Sternes, Bennet, Stoacb, Haurand i and Bhackleford Look out fok th? Bogus Viddibs.?The public la cautioned to beware of female Impostera, In tbe garb of mourning, going from door to door asking alms, and helping themselves to whatever they can carry with tbem conveniently. They have no doubt by thta time laid In a supply of elotblng, groceries and prraerres for the coming winter, ! anticipation of hard timea They are i rather ladylike In appearance; very talkative, and I exceedingly troublesome to get rid of when once admitted As the elder Weller remarked : " Bewail of the vldders." Sosi Oni to TBI Ekxxt ?The New York Times of yesterday says that " Surgeon Ganaelen, formerly in charge of the Union Hospital at Georgetown, has resigned. He obtained leave of absence, and went directly to Secesh by way of Niagara Falla, at which place he wrote bis resignation, and forwarded It to ths Department. He Is a native of Virginia and asalgna as a reason that he will lose his property in that State if he continues longer in the service of the Government." We have not been able to ascertain the truth of ths statement. Assault.?Last night, about 8 o'clock, a man was seeo to (trite another, at the corner of Seventh street and Louisiana avenue Tbe latter called for the watch.when his assailant started at a race-horse gait up Seventh street, and disappeared so suddenly that tbe county constables (nottbe watch.) who were close after him, could not identify him, as he turned into a street where the light of the stores would not expose him to view. Dmop Litths j?r?r bs Pbb-paid.?It does not seem to be generally understood tbat the law now requires drop letters to be pre-paid by a penny stamp, and consequently letters thus unpaid are coatinnally finding their war to the dead-letter ettce Postmaster Clephanej of this city, has paid tbe drop-letter postage on numerous letters out of his own pocket, rather than inconvenience the senders, but of course he cannot be expected to continue this outlay. Rilbasks?William Fallen, Benitmln Fallen, John Thomas, David King, and John Heyser, (colored,) who were taken from various vessels ??n the river, who were attempting to run th? blockade, were yesterday released from jail, where they have been confined, at tbe Instance of the District Attorney. Cbablbs Wbbmbb, a member of Capt Geary's company of Col. Young's regiment of cavalry, who, It was rumored, bad his leg shot off by a cannon shot In a sktrmlah over the river, was brought to the city yesterday, end taken to tbe Infirmary tie had his leg fractured by tbe kick of a horse. rbttbnid ?Tbe Sturges Rifle corps having returned from their visit to Old Point, where, they went as sn esrort to the mutineers who were i seat down to tbe Rip Raps, have resumed their former duties under the Provost Marahal, as the guard st tbe central station.
