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.

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.

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 :

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.

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.

Eastern Affair*.
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.

. 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 '

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
