A Ore for thf. IIfaimifk ?A correspon dent has kindly furnished us with the follow Jteeipt for the headache : ? The present extreme beat of the summer has caused considerable debility in tho ner t. us >y?tem, especially with the female sex. pausing that most painful disease, ''head ache For its immediate relief, take a piece of red blotting paper, (such as is u^d in the public departments.) fold four or five folds, in tiie sufficient to cover the whole of the part effected, dip it in a basin of ice water, and np plj it, pressed close to the head. As it ver readily absorbs water, it also evaj>oratc<? ac cordingly. and with the hand repeat the cold water?the paper remaining?every five min nates. and soon till the pain ceases, which will be at the farthest time, half an hour The great power of the paper is, that in the evapo ration of the water, it absorbs the heat from tbe head, which results in quick relief Depend upon it, this is no hoax. The FrxfRAL or MaJoR Nicholrox took flsee yesterday afternoon from his late resi dence on Capitol llill. The religion services were performed by Rev Smith Pyne. Ilia re main* were followed to the t? mb by a large number ot triends and acquaintances, both in private and public carriages; there were also in the cortege officers of the army and navy, and a full company of marines under tho com mand of (.apt.

Professor F. Sckla^ Living ox the River.?A great many of ear young mechanics, who find it almost im possible to work during the hot season, make up small parties, who hire boats and go to shady spots on the river to enjoy themselves Catfish feasts appear to be their favori e meals! at is fun for them to strip off their shoos and ?t?ekingv and wade to the flats at low tide and by tee ling am-ngthe tall grass to fiud the laige black-backed fish, fresh and pure, in Mmbcrs sufficient for their sustenance. Care lessness frequently sickens these novel fisher men. and they are forced to return to the c;i.y before they wished to leave their pleasant company. To spend the days agreeably is very easy, if a little attention is paid to the oU rules of Ixaak Walton's club, "Keep in the shade; hide the bottle where you never eia find it; and don t try to eat more than J-B want." ?The Sabbath School of the Meth edi-t Episcopal Church South had a pic nic ye.-terday. at Arlington, that delightful place of *umuicr resort They were joined by the ppiboi a kindred institution, of Alexandria, Virginia A \ery pleasant time was paused by all who were present on the occasion. The hospitable proprietor. G. W P.

(This ?crtainly a w holesome police regulation, and for the sake of the olfactory organs of the citizens living in certain thickly-settled local ities. we sincerely hope it will be rigidly en forced. | Mr. Myers presented the memorial of D.

Mr. Myers, from the committee on claims, reported back the Aldermen's bill appropri ating S2?.o0 for the benefit of J. M. Botelcr passed.

The following gentlemen have been elected officers of the Rough and Ready Club for the ensuing year: J. M. Palmer, president; T. S. Black nun. vice president; George Moore, sec retary; Jr. M- Clements, treasurer. We have been requested to say that the s earner Alice C. Price.

At well, conductor on the Warrenton stem of the Ohio and Alexandria railroad, was coupling two cars together, he fell between, and wa? so mangled that he died in a short time. His remains were brought to our city by a committee of Warrenton gentlemen, and on yesterday his remains were committed to the tomb, a detachment of the liydraulion Fire Company acting as pall bearers. Mr. A. was a young man of some twenty-two years, of kind and accommodating disposition. During j-oine months of his life he resided at the Wash ington navy yard, where he leaves many friends. Yesterday. some of the gearing of the Pio neer mills machinery took fire. The alarm was quickly given, but long before our fire men could arrive the danger wa# over. The alarm of fire on Thursday ni^ht was caused by the light of a conflagration in the direction of Washington. The storm, on Thursday night, was one of the heaviest ever known in this section. Houses w? re unroofed, fences blown down, trees up rooted, ;md great damage done to the growing corn. The barn of Mr. Roberts. Cameron Mills, was partially destroyed The residenue ofti D Fowle, at Burgundy, ami Felix Rich ard-'. ?t Valincia, and Col. B S. Ashley, on Patiick street, were struck by lightning. The Methodist Episcopal Church south Sab batb-school took u fine excursion, yesterday, to Arlington Springs. Arrived there, they united wnh their Washington friends, and spent a most pleasant day. The I. 0. U. B. of M junt Vernon Band give another of their pleasant excursions to Arling ton next Monday. The Young Catholics' Friend Society of Alexandria are about to build a fine hall over the present St. John's academy. We learn that the building is to be so constructed as have under the same roof a fine Sunday-school room, a chapel for the children, and a hall, library. Ac., (jt the Young,Catholic's Friend Society.
