A City Railroad.?During the last Congress a petition was presented to each house, asking tor the privilege of constructing a railroad from Georgetown to the navy yard, through Pennsyl vania avenue and other streets of this city; but, like the great -mass of other railroad schemes, it was not acted upon. But it is now revived. The petitioners, representing themselves to be " owners of property and residents in the District of Columbia," approve the project of Messrs. George W. Yerby, Horace M. Dewey, Epbraim Schutt, and John L. Brown, and Bet forth their be lief that " a cheap, easy, and commodious mode of travelling from one extremity of the city to the other, and into Georgetown, is indispensably ne cessary to its growth and development;" that "by laying the new style of grooved rail, similar to that used in our northern cities, and by the use of light, neat, and well-finished cars, which move noise lessly and steadily along our street, which is the admiration of all, it will be improved both in utility and appearnnce, and uoobstruction can be caused to vehicles, either crossing or running parallel with the rails, which, in fact, are nothing more than so much iron pavement, lying even with the surface of the stone pavement alougside. The entire space occupied by the double track would not ex ceed fifteen feet, and the width of the aveitue, being one hundred and sixteeu feet between the curbstones, leaves a space over one hundred feet lor carriages to pass a car. The advantages of such a road are stated ; the fare between the two points not to exceed six and a quarter cents for each passenger. There is to be horse, not steam power for propelling the cars. Such is a brief outline of the petition, and objects which the company propose to accomplish. The city councils of both Washington and Georgetown have been petitioned in relation to this subject, and on Thursday night committees of those bodies met at the Union Hotel, in George town, to examine the plans of the contemplated railroad; after which they partook of a collation. The subject meets with some favor, but to what extent.we are not advised. It is certainly one of interest, and therefore our citizens should take the matter into serious consideration. We believe it rests with Congrts* to accord the extraordinary privilege asked by the railroad projectors, al though the city councils have likewise been peti tioned with reference to the desired grant. Modification of the Rates of Postage.?The bill recently reported by Mr. Olds, in the House of Representatives, provides: 1. That trom and after the thirtieth day of Juue next, in lieu of the rates of postage now es tablished by law. there shall he charged: For every single letter in manuscript, or paper of any kind in which information shall be asked for or communicated in writing, or by marks or signs, conveyed in the mail for any distance between places in the United States not exceeding three thousand miles, three cents; and for any distance exceeding three thousand miles, six cents. 2. For every such single letter or paper, when conveyed wholly or in part by sea, and to or from a foreign country, for any distance over twenty five hundred miles, twenty cents; and for any dis tance under twenty-five hundred miles, tencents; (excepting, however, in all cases, where such postages have been or shall be adjusted at differ ent rates by postal treaty or convention already concluded or hereafter to be made;) and for a double letter, there shall be charged double the Tates above specified; and for a treble letter, treble those rates; and for a quadruple letter, quadruple those rates; and every letter or parcel not ex needing half an ounce in weight, shall be deemed a single letter; and every additional weight ot half an ounce or additional weight of less than half an ounce shall be charged >fith an ad ditional single postage; and upon all letters, pas sing through or in the mail of the United States, the postages as above specified shall be prepaid; and all drop-letters, or letters placed in any post office not for transmission through the mail, but /or delivery only, shall be charged with postage at the rate of one cent each; and all letters which shall hereafter be advertised as remaining over, or uncalled for, in any post office, shall be charged with one cent each in addition to the regular postage, both to be accounted for as other pur chases now arc. 3. All acts or parts of acts which come in con flict with the provisions of this art are to be re pealed. The Variete?The " Corsicau Brothers."? On Thursday night last,"the Variete was well filled, notwithstanding the inclemency ot the weather, to wituess the first representation of the " Corsi ean Brothers.". The audience felt themselves fully compensated for braving the storm. The mysterious character of the plot and its thrilling incidents, Goodall's delineations of Corsican kind ness ond vengeance, the tableaux, the scenery and costumes, combined to make it the best perform ance of the season. We would suggest, however, the propriety of adding a farce or burletta in ad dition, as it seemed to us that some of the scenes were drawn out to an unreasonable length to oc cupy the usual time of performance. The " Corsican Brothers" will be presented to night for the last time. Rev. ISKm. H. Mllburu, the chaplain of the House of Representatives, was advertised to jle. liver a lecture last night at Hope Chapel, New York, on " Young America," before the Mercantile Library Association. The Hon. F. P. Stanton, of Tennessee, is announced for a lecture at the same place on the 3d of February, his subject being: The Navy of the United States." The Gardiner Case.?The evidence for the (prosecution having been concluded on Thursday, the counsel for the defence opened their side of the ?question yesterday. The court has been occupied nearly eight weeks with this case, which will not probably be concluded before the first of April next, il then. " Prize Poems."?We notice that two of the one hundred and one disappointed poetic Con testants for the Latham five-hundred dollar-prize, have printed their patriotic effusions for the public perusul. While the one charges twenty-five cents a copy, the other only asks a dime. Plour.?The recent arrival of the Atlantic from Kurope brirtgs intelligence that flour has taken another rise nf two shillings in the barrel. As a consequence, the price of the article in our mar ket immediately increased accordingly. DIED. In the 70th year of her ag?, at her residence In George^ town. District of Columbia, on the :kl day of the presen month, Mrs. MARTHA JKKFKU80N WAOOAMAN, relict ?of the late Thomas Waggaman, the last of the daughters .of Governor John Tyler, late of (Irtenway, Charles coun ty, Virginia, and sister of ex-President Tyler. fhe survived moet of those, who, during the lifetime of her Other, knew her aa the presiding genius over the hos pitalities of Urcenway, and over the bright and intellectu al circle, which, msdc up of vUltors from all parts of the Mate,assembled around Its table and its hearth; but the few who still survive will hear of her death with pain. Her life, after leaving the paternal mansion, was che JurreB and direroitM ; but she sustained nil the trials of fa with a firmness more than that of a Roman matron. Her latter rears were passed happily and in comfort, un til the pestilence, which dnring the past season prevailed at New Orleans, struck down a beloved son. of which city be was an enterprising young merchant. The blow was too severe for her already attenuated frain* to support, and the mother has joined her child in another world. (She died la the full confidence of a glorious Immortality. On Thursday morning, at the residence of Mr. T. Wortb Ington, 13th street, Mr. KOUKK W. WILCOX, In the 2Ut year of his age.

The steamship Louisiana, at New Orleans on the 17th, brought Galveston dates to the 13th instunt. A private letter from San Patricio to a gentle man ol this city states that a great fight took place at the Round lake, near the town of San 1 uiricio, on the 30th of last month. It seems that 1 utnek Hart had killed Henderson Miller in a light, m the mouth of September last, and a writ was issued lor him. He at first evaded the civil authorities, but at length resisted them. The sheriff having heard that Hart was at McFall's a brother-in-law's, where he was fortified, sum moned fifteen men to go aud take him ; but when they arrived at the house of McFall, aud ordered Hart to surrender, he replied, "come and take me; and then he and his friends fired their guns upon the sherd's party, who retreated to a corral or pen, took a position there, and sent to town for supplies for a regular siege. Hart and his party fired on the sheriffs parly all d"y-without effect, and after dark the house I o Met* all took lire,and the kherifl"? party cbartred upon it, when Haft and his friends lied, firiug their guns upon the sheriffs party, who returned the lire, which killed McFall, severely wounded uucbauan, aud slightly wounded Hart in the I head, who made his escape. Antonio Sanches, one of the sheriffs party was killed, and Saui. Miller was slightly wounded. Miller and Hart are brothers-in-law. ? ^u.nuf- wr'''n8 the above, we see a communication in the V ictoria Advocate on the above affair, differ ing in some important particulars from the above account. The writer of this says there were one killed and three woundedon Hart's side, and on the sheriffs side four Mexicans killed and four or five1 wounded. We have reason to believe that this is exaggerated, as the above letter is from a gentle man of veracity, and in a position to know all the facts. The trial of the filibusters is still in progress in the united Stales district court. So far as it has proceeded, Caravajal, Mason, and McLean have been discharged. Wheat's case was continued upon his own recognisance, which leaves a few others yet upon the docket. We would suggest to our worthy friend, the l^iited States district at torney, to enter a nolle prosequi as to these, as he should be satisfied by this that nothing can be gained by a further prosecution, unless it be his own five dollars per day. Snow fell to the depth of four inches at Nacog doches on the VOth ultimo. The storm extended to a number of the neighboring counties. The convent at Galveston was much damaged by fire on the 12th instant. Detention at Erie of Locomotives for Weat era Railroads.?The conduct of the Erie people I is injuring not only the business of New York and , Ohio, to say nothing of the annoyaflce to those who are obliged to travel over the Erie isthmus, anil of the large number who are deterred from starting at all, ?^ut it is very seriously damaginga large number ot western railroads, who have locomotives wait ing in this city, at Dunkirk, and State line, all ready for transportation, and only awaiting a' settlement of the gauge difficulties. Kasson's locomotive ex press has twenty engines and tenders waiting transportation, belonging to the following com panies : Erie and Cleveland.railroad company.^ 2 Cleveland and Toledo 1 1 Cleveland and Pittsburgh !.!!!!!!! 1 Chicago and Rock Island ?J Lexington and Frankfort 1 Illinois and Iowa j Illinois Central 4 Chicago and Aurora.. ..!'!!!!!!! 1 Ohio and Pennslvania.. j Cleveland and Erie !.!!!! l Ohio and Mississippi 1 Total 20 Thus it will be seen that th'e elfect of the law less proceedings of the people of Erie, is not con fined to railroads in New York anu Ohio, but is felt by new roads throughout the west and south west, and cannot but entail upou them very heavy pecuniary losses .?Buffalo Commercial of'24t/i. Ait Unknown Island.?The British brig Cha tham was lately wrecked on an island in the Pa-1 cihc, hitherto undiscovered. The captain gives an account of the adventures of himself and crew thus: " We were distributed among the people of the island, where we spent a most wretched night, ex pecting to be speared every moment. The next morning commenced our naturalization. We were all drawn together aud nrmed with spears, and marched ofT to the north end of the island, as we supposed, to be there sacrificed to their gods, for they have many ; but the training ended well, and we were each taken to our respective houses again. For several days this training was carried on, differing only as their modes of worship differ, according to which of the gods they worship. We then found that we were considered supreme be ings, and that we had nothing to fear as long as they thought so. The natives worship idols, de parted spirits of their own race, and have gods men, or a species of Pagan priests, among them selves, whom they worship on particular occa sions." Death of a Girl from|Hydropbobia.?A girl named Susan R. Thompson, daughter of Mr. Ephraim B. Thompson, of Halifax, died at the Mas sachusetts general hospital, yesterday, of hydro phobia. She was bitten by a mad dog a few days since, and was thought to be recovering, when sud denly the symptoms returned with redoubled fury, nnd she died the most excruciating of deaths. She was seven years old. It is a notable matter that there .is no known treatment for this terrible dis ease that can btS depended upou; while nature, unassisted, sometimes effects a cure. [Hoston Bee, Jan. 23. Fatal Chastisement of a School Boy.?On Saturday, the body of the son of the late Malachi Wilson, esq., of Dnnvers, was brought home a corpse from the school at South Windham, in Con necticut, where he went to complete his educa tion, since the death of his father. We knew him as a good-looking healthy boy, of the age of 17 years. We learn, from the friends of the family i and their pysician/that his death was probably oc-1 casioned by injuries received under the chastise ment of his tenche(. A man who will treat a child in this way, under'any circumstances, is not fit to have the government of children.?Salem Gazette. Execution of W arrcn Wood.?Warren Wood the murderer of Williams, the pedlar, was hung in' the jail yard in Catskill, January 20, at a quarter be fore one o clock. He made a long address, in which he charged some of the witnesses with perjury. He confessed that he shot Williams, but protested that lie did not know what he was doing at the time. After the address, he prayed fervently forscverel minutes. Religious services were then performed by Rev. Mr. Noble, of the Episcopal, and Rev. Mr. Hall, of the Methodist Church. 1 he sheriff then pulled the cord, and the unfortu nate man was launched into eternity. He strug gled slightly, but was pronounced dead in about ten minutes. A New York Estimate of Bostonians.?Dion Bourcicault,at the conclusion of his lecture last evening, which was the last of a very interesting scries, took occasion to give an account of the impressions which a New York confidant had en deavored to instil in his mind with regard to Bos tonians. "The Boston people," said the New \orker, "are austere critics, and you must be cautious in approaching them. They are a seri ous people, and never laugh unless the law is 011 their side. They are immense thinkers?in fact they take off their coats to think." The lecturer said he had found them to be quite the reverse? indeed, indulgent and liberal?and gave it as his opinion that there was a stronger prejudice in XSew lork against Boston than there was in Eng land against all America.?Boston Courier.

There is but little definite intelligence to add to the important advices per Niagara. It ia con tinued that on December 30th a part of the allied lleet entered the Blaclt sea, having been prevented from entering before by tempestuous weather. Up to the last dates the Russian ambassadors had not withdrawn from London or Paris. M. Kis selel', the Russian ambassador at Paris, had slated that he would await further instructions from his government. The report that the Turks had stormed Karakal although probable, was nov continued. From Asia we have the letter-writers" accounts of previous affairs, but not a word of later news. The Russians had warned their shipping not to venture out of their ports unless under the pro tection of a convoy. Convoys are to be organized to different trading ports. The pasha of Egypt, on hearing of the affair at Sinopc, immediately ordered the equipment of 0 fi igates, J corvettes, and 3 brigs to replace those lost. It is confirmed that the Wallachian peasantry are in insurrection. Lord Dudly Stuart had au interview with the sultan, relative to employing Pole# in the Turkish service. It ia reported that the British charge had re sumed negotiations with Persia. The Persiaus at Teheran had broken out iu tumult against the Russians. . From Vienna it is stated, with seeming authen ticity, that Austria had asked Russia if she would consent to a European protectorate over the christians in Turkey. To this the czar replied that he would consent to no interference whatever between himself and Turkey. On the Danube very little was doing, owing to the weather. There had, however, been three slight affairs; one between a Turkish forage escort and the Cossaeks, another a sally from Sistowa, and a third an action between a Russian steamer and two gun-boats and the shore batteries on the Danube, in all ol which the Turks were victo rious. The King of Belgium has sent an autograph letter to Napoleon by a special messenger, on the subject of war prospects. The contents have not transpired, but it is supposed to be a new device of the czar to gain time, or as a bona Jide proposal from Belgium. France had called out an addi J tional contingent of 80,000 men to replace the 70,000 destined for Turkey. Prussia was concerting a course of action witb Sweden aud Denmark, in view of the comintr war. The Russian sailors on leave of absence had ' been ordered to return by the 1st of March. A letter lroin Christiana states that Norway had de termined to fit out a squadron of twelve ships, in view of approaching events. Little sympathy for Russia exists among the Norwegians. Spain. The Marquis of Turgot had b?en appointed grand officer of the Legion Honor,-it was supposed on account of Soule wounding him. Young Soule had published a long letter, ex plaining his difficulty with the Duke of Alba. India and China. The overland mail brings Calcutta dates of De cember 6. The news from Burmah was contra dictory, but war was reported to have broken out and the Burmese had recaptured Pegu. The Russians were reported at Khova. Trade in India was fair. Shanghai dates of the 19th state that tha insur gents bad evacuated Amoy, and that the imperial ists had perpetrated a horrible massacre there. England. The enormous rise in the price of food had caused serious apprehensions of riots among the laboring classes. Bread riots had already com menced in parts of Devonshire. At Topham mobs of women threatened the bakers inconse quence of their raising the price of bread. At Crediton also, mobs of men, women, and children pamded the streets and attacked the bakers' shops, breaking their doors and windows. The market people were also molested, and their produce kicked about the streets. The police were unablo to put down the disturbance, but after the report spread that the troops were coming quiet was re stored. The steamer Sarah Sands, from Portland, ar rived at Liverpool on the 10th. The steamer Charity was to sail on the 16th for Portland. Liberia.
