EVENING STAR.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.
SrsnAv Snow Sturm No 3.?Washiag
tonians were surprised on rising yesterday
morning?s>me agreeably and some disagree
ably?by finding the earth olad in a bran new
white mantle <>f snow, in place of the rather
tattered, milk and molasses colored ono she
wore on Saturday night. Some rubbed their
eyes, thinking it all ? confounded unpleasant
dream, and addressed themselves to sleep
?gain, hoping that broad daylight would have
something better in store than a third succes
sive snowy Sabbath; but morning past. and
noon, and evening. and .-till the flakes fell,
and this morning they are 41 at it again," a?
if from confirmed habit they didn t know when
to st 'p S<> we in*y cxpect another sleighing
carnival, and the unfortunate horses will catch
it again, and the suffering poor must endure
another reason of suffering and privation. A
fiesh call is now made u)>on the sympathies of
the charitable. There are probably five
thousand p?op!c in this city depending on
their day labor support at occuj atious which
are suspended temj>orariIy by the weather.
Do not leave the needy to be cared for at this
time by the t ity council*, or by charitable as
sociations What i? wanted is, discriminating
individual charity (live out all your little
jobs, suen as washir.g. sewing, scrubbing,

shoteling snow in front of his house this morn

thousand dollars, while some poor wretches,

meal for a month, stood shivering on the
corner, shovel in hands waiting for a job.

Poor Po5To?The readers of the Star have,
doubtless, come across the wonderful story of
the B?.>st'n dog, Ponto. who committed suicide
by throwing himself upon the railroad track
through mortification at having been whipped
for stealing meat.
At a '? circle'' of canine spiritualists, held
the other night in the rear of the Star Build
ings, the shade of Ponto appeared, and, in a
series of tremendous raps, denounced the
Above-mentioned report a.- a gross lihol up >n
his f*ir fame. He admits the suicide, but d<
nies the me.it It was simply an aflair of the
aflections ; having been betrayed by the la ly
dog of hi-1 choice, the fairest but most fickle of
her sex. he had, in a lit of desperation, re
S 'ted to put au end to the existence which
had now become a burden to him Edit ors
who have unwittingly given currency to the
slander, will, a? an act of justice to Ponto, cir
culate the contradiction
Members ok Congress, public speakers,

As operations ara confinod wholly to honie

little grain of any kind arriving, prices remain
unchanged. fcpRCTATOR
Norfolk and P> rtsmoi th.?Tho Peterr
burg Express learn.* thai these cities, in their
commercial and mechanic tl interests at least,
seem to have recovered almost entirely from
the effects of the late pestilence. The streets
of Norfolk, especially, are thronged from morn
ing till night with it-- active and busy citizens,
whilo a largo sprinkling of visitors is observa
ble, in the continually moving crowd. Not
withstanding the unfavorable sca-on of the
year, and particularly the oold and inclement
weather, the uier<"arttlo community appear to
be doing well, and the mechanical pursuits
flourishing. Tho number of vessels now in
tho harbor is very large, many of them, no
doubt, attracted thither by the pro-poet of
ready and heavy freights. The ice has blocked
up many of the navigable streams, and. there
by, the commerce of tho place has been some
w'aat cramped. York river i.< navigable only
to the junction of tho l'amunkey and Matta
poni, James river is closed below City Point,
and of course the smaller stream? aro impassi
ble.
. BoiUr Lunte-l ?An explosion occurred on
High street Portsmouth, on Saturday, which
was near proving sloily tragic The engine
" Romulu51'' having just brought in a freight
train from Carolina, and being detached, was
moving slowly backwards, when her boiler
bursted with a deafening noise. Fortunately,
however, there was no injury to life or limb.
Mr. l>orsey, the engineer, escaped most mirac
ulously, being at hi- post at the moment of the
casualty.
Shorting Ai riilrvt.?Mr John Taylor, of
Norfolk, was very badly injured on Friday at
the Navy Yard. One of his hand? was caught
between a steam grinding stone and tho
frame work on which it was running at a
rapid rate, and mangled in a most dreadful
manner
ly Another incendiary attempt was made
on Friday nieht to destroy Cain's Hotel, at
Norfolk ; the fire was discovered by the watch
men on duty and extinguished without the
assistance of the engines
