THE EVENING STAR GRANT. Aengstreet Protecting the Daavllle Rail read. , , _ [Correspondence of the Cbroulcle.J Nbab FaTBBBBuae, S?pt. ?, 7 a. nv?Tues day afternoon, a body of ?W colored troops w/ere coming from City Point, and had to croes tbe Prince George Court-House road, when they became visible to in* rebel gunner?. Two 3_-pounder? opened upon these men. This was the eignal for general outbreak, and iu lees man five minutes' time the front, occupied by Hancock and Birney, was abl?se. iWore the ? o.ored troops passed this point, two ot the nnmber were severely wounded. A battery la front of the 2d division of tue 2d corps made some excellent practice. Almost every shot frena these guns exploded In the embrasures of lb? rebel work?. Tbe remnant of the 7th Indiana regiment of volunteers leaves Here for home to-morrow. The sommander of thi? regiment, Col. drover, wa- captured in the Wilderness.and was among the Union officers placed under Are at Charles ten At orsi he was believed to have been ?lain. Yeeterday morning he returned to his eommand just in time to go home with it. This regiment formerly belonged to the-id brigade of the 4th division, 5th corps, but was lately transferred to General Bragg'e brigade. The officers and men were greatly attached to their old command. Last night most ofthe officers ef the 2d brigade assembled at the camp of the 7tb indiana to bid them farewell, prior to their departure in the miming. Rain is again falling. The past two or three day? have been uncomfortably warm, and a slight shower would not be objected to. When it fill? tbe trenches with water, the men find it very oncomfortable. Ixnigstreet's corps just ?ame from tbe valley, and moved on to the Danville railroad last night. Deserters came in and said great excitement existed in Petersburg yesterday, "nd tbat great fears were enter tained for this road. lOugstreet commands all the troops cent to protect the Danville road. _R. H. McBbidb. ?Crniore Fact isPhymolooy, ifTrub.?a Memphis paper relates the following account of a remarkable phenomenon: Wonders never cease! and the greatest ever heard ot in these modern times has inst come to our knowledge from entirely reliable au thority It fu 11 y disproves the wisdom of Solo mon when be proclaimed that "there was noth ing new under the son." The facts, as related to us. are: "About two weeks ago, the wife of ? market gardener, residing at Eagle Point, in this city, gave birth to twins, which Instead of being provided witb the head and features of ? the human form divine,'' had each th? head and neck of a snake.' Below the head and sboolrlers the children were of natural and eeitiely form?from the shoulders up, they pre sented' the horrible shape and characteristics of tbe r-erpent! Immediately after their birth, ? consultation of physicians was held, at which lt was very properly decide*! to bleed tbe monster to death, which was accordmglv one. What disposition was made of the bodies we have not learned. The cause as signed fer this iu???.? natunc is, that several months ago, shortly after the woman became entient', her husband playfully threw a snake's head into her face, which so frightened her that the ??-?u? assumed the horrible shape into which they were brought into the world. A SrooBPTiOB.?The "Universe" calls the aient.on of tbe Irish population to a practice existing in New York, of publishing with Irish death r or ices the part of Ireland from whi? h tbe eceas ?<'. came. The Irish being emigrants and settled in all parts of this country, have relatives and friends in all part?*, and thou sands of them have the same name. An Irish death advertisement, therefore, which does not contain the particular connty and the parish of the deceased, is greatly deficient. In fact, such an advertisement is of no value whateverout. side tbe immediate circle of the dead person. It eavs: ??We earnestly urge on Irish people hereto ebeerve the New York custom in their death advertisements. No extra expense ia incurred by doing so. Respect for the feelings ol friends, reepe t for the dead, and respect for the green ?Id I-land of the Saints, and in this thing re ligion is largely concerned) require the obser vance of it. An incomplete death advertise ment is unworthy even of a dog. Everything tbat is personal when the grave is at hand should be fully intelligible." Ninv Frebch Ibon-Clads.?A Toulon let ter of the 54th of June says: "Experiments have been made here dnrlng the lest few daye with a new kind of iron-clad gucboats, with improvements which enable them to move ata rapid rate on land as well as on water. These ?mall vessels sit very low in the water, and have on the decken iron-clad shelter pierced wi'hsix portholes and eighteen embrasures. As they pan be taken to pieces in af?w hours and divided into eighteen blocks- including the tbe engine, these gunboats could, if required, engage in a naval combat off the coast of Prov ence with a speed of eight knote, then be taken to pieces, and having been carried away by the railway be readv to fight again off tbe coasts of the .Atlantic in thirty.six hours, after crossing the whole or France. If this new engine of war had existed during the Italian campaign, Mantua and Peachiera might have been cap tured almost without a blow,and Venice might Bave Been a miniature iron-clad fleet naviga ting her lagoons." ? BssxtrAL ?RBAMEBTS.?A few days ago a liti'.- airi bad a bunch of artificialgrapee given to fcer. After amusing herself with the toy,she gave ?it to a playmate of ner own age, who presently picked a grape off th? bnnch, and sucked it. The next day she was a corpse. An eminent physician who analyzed tbe plaything deposed that ten of the grapes yielded three grain? ot arsenic of copper?a deadly poison? and that each vine leaf on the bnnch contained enough to kill a child. Another child's cup board, in which its toys were kept, was lined with green paper. Tbe poor little thing sick ened and died, obviously from the effects of poison mysteriously imbibed. Dr. I-etberby analyzed the paper-hanging of the cupboard, and found that a piece of it only six inches square contained nearly thirteen grains of the deadly compound, enough to kill two grown up persons.?London Inquirer. Impobtast t? Coal ??~???e?.?.?The United States Circuit Conrt at Philadelphia, bave decided that the weight of a ton of coal is 2,210 pounds instead of-,boo pounds. Tbejudge ruled that a company of grocers might as well meet and agree to reduce the number of ounces in a pound, and make tbe emaller number the standard of a pound for their customers, as for coal dealers to agree that the weight of a ton aball be2,0()0 pounds, and furnish that amount to their customers.
