Children, however, heretofore, are, for the greater part, (offerers fie knees, especially those who are undergoing, we mav say, the trial of their first or aeoond year of life. Parents know better than other people the descriptions of ailment to which they are subjected. The mortality, too, amon? that class of human beings is greater by far lhaa among adults. But this has always been, and doubtless ever will be, the ease, without to circumstances which cannot to well known to our citiiens, that since fhe appearance of the yellow ffcverin Ports mouth, Goeport, and Norfolk, several hundreds of the inhabitants of those places hare come hither to escape the effects of the pestilence but their presence in the midst of us occasions alarm that we can discover, nor should it. for before they left they were duly examined by physicians, and, too, underwent a similar process by officer? ef quarantine, and on each eeeasion received, severally, certificates of their healthy condition. If any deaths have among the visitors they are attributable to causes other than yellow fever. After inquiry, we cannot discover that fatal ulte axe traceable to that source. first grand excursion and pie nic of the George Washington Club will take place to scene of their festivities the White House. Scott's cotillon baud been engaged, an announcement equivalent to saying, Ladies and gentlemen, you will have the best of musi-j ftr the ment of danciag." The Club pledge themselves that no pains nor expense shall be spared to make this one of the best excursions of the pledge which we believe they have the ability to redeem. And, en Thursday next, there is to be an excursion to Fort Washington and the White House, for the benefit of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Capitol Hill. A band of good music will be in attendance, but wo cannot promise there will be dancing, for the entertainment is gotten up by church folks, whoso disciple does not sanction such diversions; but, oa the oontrary, forbids them to the membors of that denomination of Christians. We doubt not the excursion will bu of the most pleasant character, gratifying its patrons, while they will, in return for their enjoyment, be indirectly contributing to a laudable religious en. tanrisa. The next on the list is that of the Franklin Fire Company, which will take plaoe to-morrow week (the 22i of August.) Tney, toe. will Mop at the White House pavilion to enjoy their pienie; and they ''pledge themselves that no trouble nor expense will be spaied to make this one of the plea-ant, gay, and recherche exsunions of the A celebrated cotillon band has been engaged for the occasion. The Franklin members always enter heart and soul into everything they undertake, whether a ball, a fire, or a picnic. They belong to the "go-ahead" independent order, of which all who are acquainted with their history know. Success to them in this their enterprise. The last, though not least, in the programme of pleasure excursions, is that of the American Riflemen to Piuey Point, on Thursday, tho 23d instant, the fine steamer Baltimore having been chartered to convey the party down; and to prevent a large crowd being in attendaitpe, the number of tickets has been limited. Good music has been engaged for the occasion; und, indeed, every arrangement has been entered into to make the trip both comfortable and pleasant. A Good is stated, and without doubt truthfully, that 44 the appearance of yellow fever in Portsmouth, the Council of that town has expended five thousand dollars for the sufferers, and their funds and reseuices are well nigh out." The citizons of iuchmond. and of other plaoes, we are gratified to perceive, arc contributing of their substance for the relief of sufferers by the yellow fever in Portsmouth and Norfolk. In the languago of the Dispatch, it is all-important which is to be done should bedonequickI'dthe lick are 3ufferiagfor the necessaries ot life, as well as for nurses, which can only be "I at exorbitant prices." followin6 communication appeared in the National Intelligencer of this morning, a good example, which should find many imitators To the One whose experience has taught him the worth of friendship the hour of trial, sends you ten dollars tor the relief of those who suffer privation in the 41 infected region" of Norfolk and Portsmouth. Tours, with great respect, C. Washington, August 13, 1855. Revebsb Last night, a party of tour young gentlemen, who were determined Mn mme fun?" Pnt on the habiliments of Cift. Whisky's army," and passed through the city in a carriage drawn by a aingio horse, laeir sport consisted in hallooing at different and persons. They moved along safely enough till on Thirteenth street, near where a new building is in process of erection. Thev commenced their shouts at the residents about there, but were checked suddenly by driving Into a large pile of bricks lying in the street. The horse was thrown and considerably injured. The young gentlemen escapod with whole bones, but were awfully 44 cut down" by having to obtain assistance from the very persons they were trying to tantalise. I vTEatSTi.No night, a fellow, 44 pretty well in for it," found in the market making a speech to a whisky flask, which he had placed on the bcnch in front of bun. He argued, that the fla--k waa ungrateful. because, during the heat of the day, he had provided for it, and kept it lull, and then, at that late hour of the night, when he most wanted a drink, the flask refused to yield a single drop. He declared, with an oatti, that the flask deserved to have its neck broken and was about to inflict that punishment on the ungrateful bottle when he was seised by Officer Wollard, and confined in the guardhouse. He was disehargod this morning with a lecture from tho officer in charge. The little aeticlb used by the Auxiliary Guard to secure disorderly und dangerous persons, excites aotne curiosity among those who have never seen it. a quiet it is strange that desperate rowdies go to prison willingly with men whom they bate, and only making threats which are seldom notieed bv tae guard. It is all in that 44 little a small cord about twelve inches in lergth with a stick about two inches long at each end As soon as the guard finds that his prisoner is about to resist, hu seizes his arm, and I putting the cord around nis wrist turns the slicks until the cord is closely twisted to the skin The prisoner will go quietly then, as attempt at resistance causcs a sensation Mmilar to pulling the arm from the body.

In many of the articles there waj a reduction of pnoea. as compered with those of the former irket day. The average 44 asking" for twenty-five cents a peclL, and Irish potatoes the same. The array of cabbage was gratifyiug to the lovers of that de- i acription of vegetable, boiled, as well as the devatees of saur-kraut. The market uccomo- 1 datious are entirely too contracted. The wagons of dealers extended as far westward as Eleventh street. person stole a pair of window shades recently from the establishment of Mr. D. Moore, upholsterer. They were valued at five dollars. A lady went into Mr. Moore's establishment to purchase the articles necessary to hang the shades, aad Mr. Mjore at once identified bis property. Upon tae case being examined into before Justice Goddard, it appeared that the shades Bad been purchased from a colored person for seventyfive cents. The case was dismissed, Mr. Moore retaining his goods, and the purchaser losing the money the paid for the old tailor, who is daily engaged near the public reservation, opposite Centre market, knitting cotton covers for good example of industry to employed in the unotabie business of spinning street yuro! A correspondent asks. Is it not necessary, and would it not be a proper precaution for the city authorities here, to order quarantine in relation to all vessels coming from Norfolk, New Orleans, and St. Thomas r' and rdds, "The security of the health of our city against the pestilence that is desolating Norfolk and Portsmouth, is the duty of thoee in authority, as far as they hare the means. The temporary interruption to business would be no consideration, compared with the risk of introducing the fever by negldbt of all proper We remark, that persons coming hither from the infected cities are quarantined at either Baltimore or Alexandria; and henoe there does not acem to be a necessity for smeh sanitary regulations as applicable to Washington. It would be proper, however, for the board of health and the ward physicians to pay especial attention to the subject to whieh reference is made, and, in conjunction with the city authorities, to devise means for the removal of the as filthy streets and alleys? which never fail to invite the yellow fever, and other pestilences. Confidencb iv THi Sunday night a female was taken to the guard house for keeping a disorderly house. She was ordered to give security for appcannoe at Court. She sent for her frionds, ana they oame, when she tried to induce them to "go her security." They were afraid to venture. Her last argument with one was that "if the jury finds me guilty, I know by experience that the Court will only sentence me to pay a small fine and I can go right out of Court." The argument was uo( strong enough, and the unfortunate madam was sent to jail. The corner stone of a now German Reformed Church, on Four-and-a-half street, between Maryland and Virginia avenues, in the Seventh Ward, was yesterday afternoon. The Masonic fraternity performed the ceremonies usual on such occasions Several addresses, in German and English, were delivered and the services generally were of an interesting character. Black Swab will bo performed by the Kunkel Opera Troupe to-night, at Odd Fellows' Hall. In addition to the usual variety of fun, burlesque, and melody, the song of Hans and Katarina, as sung by S. W. Glenn thirty nights in succession, in will be tendered ou this occasion. The talented and popular Wells children will sing several songs Not a Editor: I have understood that the Star has announced me as a indidatc for the Board of Aldermen of this town, at the election for a member of said Board, to come off on Thursday next.

Maquire, President of Georgetown College, Daniel Lynch, James Clark, and Shelly, will take (at Trinity Church) the last vows preparatory to becoming full of the order of Jesuits. Tho ccremonies will doubtless be not only solemn and impressive, but of a very interesting nature. Since the closing out of their stock of old wheat, Messrs. Boyce A Taylor have been actively engaged supplying their extensive flouring mills with new machinery. The old water wheels have been substituted by new ones on a larger scale, and many other portions of the old machinery has been removed to make way for new of the most approved order. About the first of the ensuing week, they expect to cominenoe operations again. Our election, which comes off on Thursday, for one member of the Board of Aldermen, begins to aUract considerable attention. From the present st ite of feeling, we think that the vote pulled will be quite Urge. It is suffi ciently settled that. G. W. Beall will be the anti, and Judson Mitchell the Know Nothing candidates.

The Young Bachelors' Association, with their friends, spent yesterday at Arlington most pleasantly, dancing, swinging, ringing, and strolling. The whole party enjoyed themselves to the utmost. For awhile the rain operated as a damper upon the festivity, but soon the sun smiled out again and the temporary discomfiture was forgotten. Abe police authorities and some of our pie seeui to be at loggerheads about the management of town affairs, and the morning papers teem with suggestions and raphes. The objectors the there is I negitot, and the officials set out through the same organ, that the negleclPis on the part of those who do not inform the authorities of such matters as they desire to see attended to. The inoendiary attempts, on Satuiday night latt, which were unsuccessful, have created considerable excitement here. M0Gouneg.1l'* restaurant, on Cameron street; the oarpentershop of Man kins Fadely, on Fairfax street, and a dwelling on Cameron street, were all tired; but by the vigilance of our night-watch every attempt whs toiled. This shows the fine working of our new district The camp-meeting of the Methodist Church, at Union camp-ground, eommences next Thursday. A large number of river craft came up yesterday, which, added to tho large vessels al ready here, give our harbor a fine appear unce. Ami. t'yRusgia averages about eight souls to a square mile, Fracce 170, and England 230. py Notices have been given of Intended application to the next Legislature of Pennsylvania for an increase of the banking capital of that State of over twenty-tight millions of A New York Courier and Enquirer sjys: We learn that one cf the most prominent shipbuilders of this city was engaged, about two weeks ago, in looking about lor timber to use in building a man-of-war for the Russian Government. Since that tiin-j he has suspsuded operations, and declines purchasing timber tnat is offered to him. The contract under which the frigate was to be built required that the should be delivered at a Kussiju port. We are not informed whether the design has been abandoned by direction of i the Russian Government, or whether the contractor, despairing of his ability to perform the clause in the contract above mentioned, has adopted this course to save himself from the loss resulting from having ship lying idle but iu either case, the fast that the worit has been suspended, aud perhaps altogether Abandoned, Is rifoifloant. Tmc of has (he following upon tha treatment of the siok at the hospital at Portsmouth The U. 8.

These patients are put into well ventilated rooms, on clean beds and mattresses, and have the skill and unremitting' attention of Dr. Minor, the surgeon at the hospital, and his assistants, Passed Assistant Surgeon Harrison Assistant Surgeon Steele, of the Three of the Sisters of Charity, from St. Joseph's. and from this city, are also in attendance on the sick, rendering tbeir valuable aid in the cause of humanity. We are glad to learn that Dr. John Schoolfleld, chairman of the Portsmouth sanitary committee, who has been undor treatment at the hospiial is getting better." The report for the 24 hours ending at 2 p. m. on the lOlh shows 17 new cases and 4 deaths In the city, and 2 new cases and 7 deaths in the hospital. From Portsmouth we hare no official report, owing, no doubt, to the faot that the chairman of the sanitary committee is down with the fever. Flour Richmond (Va.) American learns that 300 bbls. of flour were sold for shipment on Saturday, at prices ranging from $9 to 59 12i. Keeping a Past New Orleans Delta tells of a young man who stole $11,000 from his employer, and then fled to Havana, and concludes the statement with th's significant remark: He went often to the Lake with, a Fast Horse." What a sermon might be written from that text! The number of snake stories in the papers this year is quite unparalleled The last we saw was in tho Trumbull Democrat, of the 28th which said: On last Tuesday morning Mrs. Edwards, wife of William Edwards, living near Mercer, while making the bed in which her children had slept the previous night, found coiled up at the foot of it a very large black snake. He looked up though he had had a good night's rest, and when awakened showed some anxiety to get up. He was dispatched immediately. Real letter from Paris An individual, condemned some time ago to ten years' hard labor for robbing a church, having served out his time, and having, by good conduot, recovered his reputation, was last week married, at tho ago of sixty, to a girl of eightoen. Hardly had they retired fbr ihe night, when a scream was heard and the bride fainted. She had seen upon her husband's shoulder, in deeply branded the horrible words "sacrilege." When she recovered her senses, it was found she had lost her- reason." CT Letter from Hen. Jehn Miser Botts, ef Virginia. Rtchkoho, July 9,1855. Messrs. Wm. S.

Without being disposed or deeming it necessary to go into the particulars of the case, I can say that the astonishing results that have been produced by the use of that medicine on a member of my own family, and under my own observation and superintendence, after the skill of physicians had been exhausted and all the usual remedies had fciiled. fully justify me in recommending its use to all who may be suffering from that dreadful malady. I do not mean to say that it is adapted to all constitutions, or that it will afford the same relief In all cases; for, of course, 1 can know nothing about of what 1 have seen of the I would not hesitate to use it, In any and every case of Scrofula, with persons for whom I felt an Interest, or over whom 1 could exercise Influence or control.
