Bchlbb?Among the incidents of the war in lta effects on this city is the establishment on Pennsylvania avenue over Wall ft. Stephens', between Ninth and Tenth streets, of a branch of Buhler'sfamous restaurant at the corner of Broadway and Eighth avenue, New Vork city. For twelve years past we have known Bubler'a house in New York as tbe establishment frequented by tbe famous gourmets there whilom accustomed to continental gastronomy, and are free to sav that we have never seen its equal. Already Buhler's Washington establishment (which be superintends in person) is constantly thronged with guests, so far principally French and German officers from New York and neighboring States, who have been his patrons in Gotham We can aafely say that if our fellow-ritlzens who like exquisite cookery will pay him a visit they will enjoy there such dinners and suppers as are rarely Indeed to be found elsewhere this side of Paris A member of the noted New York bouse of Wellker?importers of Rhine and other German and French wines?Is Buhler's partner here, and dispenses at very reasonable prices much finer wines of those descriptions than were previously obtainable in tbe Federal Metropolis No bar Is kept in the bo<ise, their wines and liquors being ke^t for sale to tbe patrons of their sumptuous Mubdbb is tbi Sbvbnth Wabd ?This morning, patrolmen Campbell and McCauley, of the Seventh Ward police, discovered the body of a colored woman named Rachel Turner lying In Lambell's old ship yard, foot of Ninth street south. She was dead, and from the faet that blood was discovered in several places around, and her frock torn as if in a scuffle, and a wound under the right eye, the officers suspected foul play, although she was a woman of intemperate nabits, and when found the side of her face was lying in the water. Her residence was in the notorious locality known to the police for years past as Desmond's Alley, between Ninth and Tenth and K and F streets south The patrolmen went directly to her house, and there discovered blood on the floor, and they arrested all in the house and that adjoining, and carried them before J ustlce Strattou There was evidence of a q uarrel and fight In the house of deceased last night, and without further testimony, tbe magistrate, to secure ths witnesses, and. if possible, tbe prlncl pals, committed all to jail to awatt tbe verdict of the coroner's inquest, not yet made Tbe parties are all colored. Of those In the bouse, tbe names are : James Douglas, Noah Shields, Lemuel Harris, MaryF Wheeler, Susan Anderson, and Eliza Lee. The witnesses, from the next house, are: Alfred Topbam, James Turner, Mary Brown, Mary E. Fitzbugb. Hobriblk Accident ?A Member of the District Volunteers Crusk'd by the Cars ?Last Friday night a horrible accident occurred just beyond tbe station at Bladensburg, on the Baltimore and Washington Rallrosd, by which private Drury, of Captain Clarks's company, was instantly killed. Drury was stationed to guard tbe track, and while on duty was Induced to drink freely?stupefying him to such a degree that while sitting upon the track h? was unconscious of tb<* spproach of the evening train, although warned by the shouts of his comrades. Tbe engineer saw him, whistled down bresks, reversed his engine, and by shouts endeavored to arouse tbe man, but In vain; the cow-catcher striking blm and completely tearing him to pieces, scattering fragments of bis body along tbe track. The remains of tbe unfortunate young man were gathered up by bis comrades snd decently Interred at their own expense In a neighboring burial ground. Drury was a young man about eighteen years of age, and resided across the Eastern Branch. This occurrence Is rendered more lamentable, from the fact that tbe deceased was not addicted to drinking, and was neyer known to be intoxicated before. Kmo's National Cibcus ?This entire establishment has removed to Georgetown, and will perform for three days, on the lot corner of West and Green streets. Tbe whole of the forces will appear, Including tbe champion leaper, Tom King, and Messrs Gardiner ana Kennedy, clowna. Frank Wbittaker, Wm. Klncade, Jas. Ward, F.

Mad'lle Marie, Miss Virginia, Miss Elolse, the child rider, and Madame Camllle will all participate In the performance that will be given both afternoon and evening In tbe course of two wesks tbe new Amphltbeater In this city will be completed, and then the management of King'a National Clrcua will produce an entertainment that will, we are assured, surpass anything of the kind ever given In the Metropolis.
