Do Nothings ' ia this city; and now have to state that there is an organisation of them, as ap pear! from the following notice, which has been sent to n.i lor publication, and paid for a* an advertisement: ?? Nonce.?The members of the Do Nothing Hc,ciety are mnuested to attend a special meet ing, to be held at the Park Hotel, Juno 12, at erven o'clock, p m By order of Ut Horbtcamp, June 11?It* Secretary." M o take the liberty of placing this notice car local column, with a view of insuring its perusal by all who are interested in the ob ject! and aim* of the organisation. Centre Market was plentifully supplied with all the good things of the season ; but it required a very small basket to carry away a dollar's worth of tho vegetable and animal productions, so temptingly displayed The prices were not only exorbitantly high, es heretofore, but uniform; and, therefore, a trotting round the market premises with a view of finding reduced rates, was futile. Beef, fifteen, and mutton and lamb twelve and-a-half cents a pound; strawberries from twelve to twenty contsaquart; string beans fifty, and green peaB thirty seven and a half csnts a peck ; butter the last named sum per pound, and eg*? twenty two cents a dosen. The misfortune in that the appetite oannot be contracted or accommodated te the prioes. The quality of the articles purohased, how ever, accords with the length of the purse. Tin Mkrtino to Night ?It should be rec ollected that there is to be a meeting to night of the 1'nion Association, at Harmony Hall, where all who were defrauded of their right to vote in the late municipal election, and, indeed, all anti Know Nothings among us, aro invited to be present Thk Ujciow Gcarps ?The first grand mili tary and civic excursion of the Union Guards will take place on Thursday next. By refer ence to the advertisement in another oolumn, it will be 6een that two b^ats have been en gaged for the occasion. The famous White House is to be the scene of tho pic nic and the beautiful Potomac of the moonlight excursion. Stock Sale ?Yesterday afternoon, Mc Ouire. auctioneer, sold at his rooms $25,000 worth cf Chesapeake and Ohio Canal pre ferred bonds, at 33i, to Messrs. Burke and Herbert, brokers of Alexandria, Virginia. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE GEORQETOTrx, June 12,1855. Yesterday, the schooner William Henry, Bailey, from Baltimore, with a cargo of salt to James A. Magruder. of cur city, in attempt ing to get 'hrough the draw in the Long Bridge, ran on a snag wbioh was concealed from view on one of the s des of the draw, and damsgel her bottom to such an extent that aha sunk in a few minutes. The salt will be a total loss, but the vessel, we presumo, will be raided again, a* we learn that the oaptain succeeded in running her cn the fiatd before she went down This is another proof, strong as holy writ, rf the great injustice done to tho people of Georgetown by the continuation of this outrageous obstruction to their eomtnerce. This ac^ilent of itself, to eay nothing of the multitude of a lee* magnitude which a*e con stantly o:curring, and the continual difficul ties, delays, and annoyances that this bridge imposes on vessels generally, will be sufficient tj deter many from trading to our wharves, particularly if the obstruction is suffered to continue wiiero it is; and if they oorisent to como at all, it wi>! bo only upon condition that cur merchants submit to additional bur dens in the shape of extra freights, which, of course, would be a drawback to the general trade of our city. We doubt vwry much whether there can be found in the Union an other community who would have submitted to such a grftiance wi.h the same degree of pa'ience as the people of Georgetown have to this, for the last half century. We learn that a brother of Mr. Riggft. of the firm of Ri^gs A Co , ha.i purchased the beautiful property upon our heights, formerly owned by the late Col. George C Washington, for $17.dOO. Also, that Major Scott has dig pos?;d of his pre pertv known as the cedars, and for many years the residence of the late C<*1. John Ccx who was Mayor of Georgetown for twenty odd years, for $10,000 This is also a lovely spot for a private residence, being situated in one of tho most quietaud healthy parts of our city, immediately upen its northwest border. Our poople lave become "great'' for excur sions ; ecaicoly a week elapses that one or more does not leave our wharves. Yesterday a party left cn board the steamor George Washington, in company with an excursion from your city, for the White House pavilion, and to morrow morning the steamer George Page, Capt. Rither, leaves at 8 o'clock, with another for Fort Washington, vii: the Sabbath School of the Methodist Churoh. Mr Amos Hunt, who resides on Capitol Hill, wo learn, was yesterday appointed by the directors, agent for the Potomac Fire Insur ance Company f?,r your city. Flour he'd at $10 871 for shipping brands; no sales except in a small way to home traJe. Wbuat?but lirtle arriving; held at $2 40a $2 45 for red and $2 o0:*$2 55 for white. Corn $1 03a$l 10 for whito and yellow. SriCTATOB. Griay Day's Wobk ?We learn from the f Miners Journal that on the 18th day of April last eight thousand four hundred and five tons of coal in 1,73ft car3 were weighed on one of Fairbar.k's Track Scales in use by the Mir.e Hill (Pa ) Railroad company, which is about one thousan i tons more than was ever weighed in a singlo day before. About one-third of the time was not occupied, which would give the capacity of the scales for % constant day's work at about twelve thousand tons The scale is about the longest ever made by the Messrs Fairbanks, and probably the lougest in the world, it being one hundred and twelve feet longer than an ordinary "city lot," and capable of receiving and weighing at once, and with a fc<Dgle weigh beam, a train of eleven cats loaded with ceal. rryns booflano's cki.kb rated grrman bit TKSrf.?Weak, nerroua, depressed In spirits, and a prey to Innumerable mental, *? well im phytic*! evils, the ?!? tlm to <1**! ens'.s, i?
