The City Council of Harper's Perry held a -p?:iAl meeting on Monday last. relative to the a proaohlng oelebration Among the pro ceedings, It was resolved to extend to the oiti ieni end military of Baltimore and Washing ton a most cordial invitation to visit their town opon the 4th of Jnly next. It was far ther resolved, that the Mayor, Recorder, and t'.<? members of the Covneil constitute a com mittee to receive, in an appropriate manner, the oitiiens and military of Baltimore and Washington, on their arrival. Harper's Perry is one of the most romantio spots in the world, and every one who can make it convenient should survey its beauties. Jefferson said that its natural soenery would amply repay a visit across the Atlantio. Why should our citisens go abroad when such at tractions are preionted at home. and at far less expense? Mhiy of o'li-friends will resort thither on the fourth of July, should the railroad com paey provide lor the issuing of round trip tickets at reasonable prioes, as has been done on the line from Baltimore to Harper s Perry. A Testimonial ?Professor Alex Dimitrv, formerly of Louisiana, and now a resident *oi this citv, has oonoluded, before tbe students of Georgetown College, a course of twelve Iec turw on the subjeot of tbe "Civilisation of An cient Greece ? Of the character of the litem ry production, it does not become us to pro nounce an opinion; but the fnet of its highly interesting character is sufficiently expressed by the aot of the students themselves, who, several days ago, in appreciation of his classi cal eff rts, presen-ed him with a silver pitcher, elegantly and elaborately chased, bearing a suitable m-cription. The testimonial took him by surprise Tho presentation as well as the acceptance speech was chaste and eloquent. l'fl* Editor or the Trpth, Aqai!?!-A .
