LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tn* V?LL9W Fetus.?We learn from a Sntieman thoroughly acquainted with the its, that the yellow fever w confined to cer tain localities in Goeport. Portamouth, and Nor folk The cases in the last named city are, for the gmter part, of persons who hare (led thither from the irst named, taking with them the ?eeds of. the disease in their own persons Much distress is needlessly added to the con sternation on the part of individuals ftyi from the infected cities, by oppcesaive Quran tine regulations of neighboring ports, as well as of thoee to whioh there is water communi cation from Portsmouth, Goeport, and Norfolk There was but little panic in the last named city until the quarantine regulations were so geaernDr adopted. They who leave the scenes of the disease hare in their possession certifi cate* from their home physicians, to the effect they have not been rick, hare no symptoms of sickness. hare no siekness in their nunilles, nor are they from the infected localities. Not withstanding this, they are for honrs detained on board of vessels, densely crowded, (the tarn, in all eases, not of the most wholesome description,) and subjected to the exercise of a degree of patienee. which, in connection with the anxiety to land, are not calculated to re ( store calmness, but actually excite fever. We object not to the citizens of any State or neighborhood resorting to every means in their power, compatible with humanity, to preserve the public health, and to exclude yellow fever; but, in view of the circumstances we have stated, we think that there is, in very many esses, needless detention of passengers.

Washington. Aug. 13, 1855. The Riot at the steamboat wharf last week has been examined into by Justices Morsell *nd Goddard. and it is probable that those persons who have been named as connected with it, will all be discharged ? r held to secu rity for peace. In the case of Joseph Birch examined by Justice Goddani, the evidence oniy justified the magistrate in holding him to security for peace, which was done. In the case of J. W. Birch, before Justice Morsell, it was shown that the accused waa acting in the discharge of his duty as a member of the auxil iary guard, trying to prevent an attack upon a gentlemsn frvni Virginia who was at the wharf. Justice Morsell dismissed ths ease. There are other cases for trial, and the par ties are to appear. There was evidence of a riot; bat it appeared that the instigators had eaiaped, and the peacemakers been arrested. The evidence was m> cinfased that it was diffi cult for the Justice to decide who waa present or who absent. CLAiwi.fo a Small Rmwabd.?The National Intelligencer of this morning contains the fol lowing paragraph: , " A negro boy, near the Patent Office, on flinth street, yesterday hastened to overtake n lady, whom he asked if she had not lost something Placing her hand where her wstch should have been, she hastily replied, 4 Yes; let me see what you have found V ?

QuAnAXTisu ?The Board of Health of our si*er city, Alexandria, has established quar th?

Dr William B. Gregory is the health officer, and Capt. George Dearborn assistant, the latter in the place of Capt. J. C. Moore. declined. Baltimore has also established strict quar antine, with a view to the prevention oi the introduction of the yellow fever from certain Southern porta; so have Philadelphia. Wil mington, Bel., New York, and other seaports, North and South. Fall op Ice?This morning, the front wheels of an ice wagon became detached, on Pennsylvania avenue, near Eleventh street, and down came the precious and seasonable freight. The driver walked off his horses, with the two wheeis dangling at the animals' heels, leaving the remainder of the wreck be iiuid him. Half a dusen of the future states men or soldiers of the Republic?for the youths ?t this country soon learn their civic and a*ht ing duties?were not alow in invading the Wagon. and amusing themaehea therein. Male juveniles have the facility of adaptive them selvee to almost any cireumataoeee. specially to thoee which can be turned to amusement purposes. The misfortune of the ice man waa to them a source of pleasure. ^LH?*?*? riLis.?^)n Friday night sev eral boys were detected by the officers in at feodanoe at Odd Fellows' Hall, climbing up to the windows of the saloon, in order to erjoy the performances of the Kunkel Opera T-oupe One little fellow, having gained the height, was just i? the act of poppi^ in. when heswa; unexpectedly reminded by a tipstaff that he could not intrude.

Etiquette.?a case was tried before the Criminal Court on Saturday, in which Jam?4 Thompson, the prosecuting witness, charged two others with committing an assault upon bim, at a meeting of the American Protestant Association, at Temperance Temple, last week. The facts io the case, as elicited before tl e Court are us follows : Thompson, who was a ' member of the Society, attended the meetit;^ and made application for a card of withdrawal. The request of Thompson was at once complied ? with by the Association, when he endeavored to leave the room without observing the rult s of the Society. The officer at the door ob serving that he did not conform to the rule?, refused to allow him to pass out until he ad dressed the chairs, whereupon Thompson cre ated a disturb ana# in the meeting. The pie siding officer then requested the defendants tu conduct Thompson through the outposts, whish they d i in a manner not altogether to bis liking. The Court t-xhoneratua the d< fer.dants, remarking that Thompson deserved the treatment be received for violating the etiquette of the Association.?Bait. Amer. A Sao Talc.?a man named Barnabas Bates, picked up in our streets, in a state of intoxication, tells a sorry story of hU life.

He was tempted to buy a lottery ticket; and 1 n< w his wife, children and farm are ail gone 1 His wife is in her grave, his children married and settled away from^ him, and his farm squandered for lottery tickets. He expressed 1 to Chief Morgan entire indifference as to his fate?for all bis property was cone, and life 1 was indifferent to him. " Yet, said be, '? I 1 blame no one?it was all my own fault?i brought this on myself. I am sixty-six years old, and have not much longer to stay." The old man's end experience has a lesson for thoee who will listen to it.?Albany Regis ter, 10th. iy A mother of one of the Grenadier Guards at tbe Crimea, having written a touching and tearful letter to her son, such as a mother would naturally write, received the following letter in reply, signed Joshua Priestly, of the Grenadier Guards: 411 don't want to see any more crying let ters come to the Crimea from you. Tboae that I have received I have put into my rifle, after loading it, and have fired them at the Rus sians, because you appear to have a strong dislike to them If yon had seen as many killed as I have, you would not have as many weak ideas as you have; besides being present when the shot, shell, and musketry were firing , past and ringing round you, bursting and killing hundreds on your right hand and on ' your left, and yourself kept firing until the sweat streamed from you." It is after this fashion that war destroys the j better nature of man The mother in thisifase is mure to be respected than the soldier. Hours op Labor ?The last Legislature paased a law fixing a day's labor at ten hour*, unless it should be otherwia* agreed by spe- j cial contract, and we learn from the Norwich Courier that the factory bands in the eastern part of the State are availing themselves of tbe [ law to compel their employers to accept ten i hours as a day's work At Willimantic, tbe i hands demand eleven hours a day, or five days ; and nine hours on Saturday. At North Wind ham, tbe bauds demand ten houro a day. and , i the employers offer them eleven. The factories there have been idle a week. Tbe ootton fac tory at Korwieh Falls is partially suspended lor the s*ine cause, and otner smaller factories are affected the same way.?New Haven Jour nal and Ctrurier.

The news by the steamer bound to New York could be antici pated several days, and by that stopping at Halifax tea or eleven hours. The eost of the Halifax despatch of foreign news, received once a fortnight, is not much under $30,000 per annum. Ax Enormous Mass.?We understand that the Cliff Mine has shown a mass of pure cop per which has been computed to contain five hundred tons. Two hundred tons have al ready been taken off the mass. There are about five hundred tons of masses in right be sides this. The company are about cutting a shaft through to another veiu which has been discovered, and is said to be much richer than the one wbich they have been working. The effect of this upou the stock cannot but act fa vorably, and we hear that holders are confi dent that prices will reach three hundred dol lars per share and no sellers at that.?Lak e St yr ,*or Journal. c* "One ounce of the celebrated percussion or fulmonating powder is said to be mora than enough for charging a thousand caps. In ch urging the caps the fulminate is mixed with a quarter of itj weight of water and half its weight of gunpowder, and the whole is theu ground together with a wooden mitfler upon a marble slab.
