The station is situated on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, some quarter of a mile from its junction with the Manassas Gap Road. There is no regular depot, but a rudely constructed building answers the purpose at present.

Washington items. --A Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, under date of Sept. 12, says: The new metropolitan police, to the number of one hundred and five, went on duty for the first time last night.

They were taken before Justice Donn, who committed both to jail to await a hearing. On Tuesday, after the flag presentation by Gov. Curtin, three members of the Lochanan Rifle Guards, Seventh Pennsylvania (reserve) Regiment, were examining a pistol, when it was accidentally discharged, and one of the men, named Mathew Roche, was instantly killed.

A bull run-off affair. --The train on the Central Railroad which left this city at 11 o'clock on Wednesday morning last, came in contact with a bull on the track about 120 miles from the city, by which the engine was thrown from the track and much damaged.--The evening trains, both from Macon and Savannah, were detained until eight o'clock yesterday morning, by which time the workmen had erected a temporary track around the damaged locomotive, which could not be immediately moved.
