Jefferson, Madison, aud Monroe in the establishment here of a national insti tution. and the sanguines hopes which are now entertained that under the newly-elected and able corps of professors, with a president at its head who has a national reputation, that the institution will now receive the patronage and support of the citizens of Washington.

The Cami' Meeting.?As a matter of course thousands of our fellow citizens will visit the camp meeting which is to commence to-mor row afternoon in a forest on the lands of Col. William Minor, iu Alexandria county, Vu. The distance is about Hi miles from the Vir ginia end of the long bridge, and the road is jut n-'W in capital order. A more convenient way to get there, (if some enterprising person would run a liuc of carriages from the Virginia end of the acqucduct at Georgetown to the camp ground, a distance of four miles,) would be to take the omnibus to Georgetown, then walk from the stand over the aqueduct to the starting point of the proposed line of coaches. We understand that quite a number of renowned Methodist Protestant Divines are to be in attendance, and that some fifty family and boarding tents are already being prepared; among them, tents for nearly all the families in the county attached to the denomination. For the benefit of those disposed to attend for a frolic, of whom, unfortunately, there are always too many in all cities, we have to say that the police regulations for the week arc in in very efficient hands, indeed ; while the country people in that particular locality (C>oney) are famous for having long been abou t?"> very ugliest customers that a stranger bent on a row can manage to pick up. Cauip meetings have been held in their neighbor hood almost annually for at least fifty years past, and while their courtesy aud hospitality to viritiug strangers who respect themselves and the rights of others is unbounded, they rarely fail to leave a lasting mark on the car ca?c of every wight who manages to render his presence on or near the camp ground a very decided nuisance. A word for the wise should be sufficient. We make these remarks in this connection, in order to save whole hides f?>r our city '? fast uns'' ambitious of going to camp meetings "on a bust." It should be remembered that when they feci called on thus to protect their wives, children, relatives and friends from insult and annoyance, they do it in companies of from twenty to one hun dred strong. We recollect one occasion on which some half a dozen city rowdies iusulted a young lady by lewd jesting in her hearing; wnen her male relatives to the number of thirty or forty, almost tore them to pieces be fore 'they could be persuaded by the elders of the large family kith on the ground, to let them go. Two of the party are maimed from that rencontre to this day, though it occurred years ago. We know that those having the meeting in charge will be glad to see all from a distance who may attend with proper ends in view. Cori'oratio* Cases.?Mary Hog, drunk, lying hi the streets. This woman would not givo her name, and Justice Bates committed her under the nauio of Mary Hog, from her "wallowing in the mireworkhouse thirty days J- Allen, keeping a dog without license; fined $?> and costs. Timothy Shannon, selling liquor on Sunday ; fined $20 and cost*. An appeal *?s takeu ia tliu catc. Compliment to Jcdge Waldo.?Yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, interesting proceedings were witnessed in the Pension Office; the clerks and other persons employed in that bu reau having assembled to pay a deserved com pliment to Judge Waldo, in the presentation to him of a service of silver plate, consisting of six solid pieces, namely : A coffee pot. two ten pots, cream ewer, and slop bowl, wcighinc 20ft ounces, and costing S400. It is entirely plain, having no ornaments except at the l'eet. edges, and top, which are exquisitely chased, giving an elegant relief to trie whole. This beautiful present has been manufactured to order by M. W. Gait A Brother, of this city The first-named piece bears the following in scription : A memento of respect and friend ship from the clerks and other gentlemen in the Pension Office to the lion Loren P Waldo upon his retirement from office. Washington, August I. 1855. Mr. John Itnbb made the presentation si?ec eh, and was replied to in terms equally apposite and eloquent by the respcetcd recipient "f the honor. Jivenile Dishonesty.?Yesterday. !i.b\v, b 'tween seven and eight years of nge, offered to sell to a son of Capt. Lullay, who is about ihe lame size as himself, a piece of cali o, worth, probably, five or six dollars, for the sum of six and a (juarler cents! Another son, four years the senior of his brother, witnessing the proceedings, r.' once seized the good.-, which he carried to his father. The lad who hal offered the article for sale immediately tied, but. afterwards his broihcr cainc to the Captain's elder son and demanded the calico, saying if he did not surrender it he would be killed with a knife! Comment on these pro ce dir.^s arc unnecessary, as they sufficiently ??how a state of moial depravity painful to every reflecting mind. The bov to whom we first allude doubtless acquired ihe go.?ls dis honestly, and it may not be the first case <1 the kind with him. Capt. Lullay ha* been seeking to find the owner of the stolen article, and left it at this office for reclamation. The Exclusion of the National ari? to-morrow (Thursday) to Piney Point, ? oilers attraction to all classes?the invalid, business man. young and old, lad and lass."' The steamer Mount Vernon will convey the excur sionists ti> the Point, where they will remain a sufficient time to enable them to enjoy the delights of a pure salt water bath, feast on the aquatic delicacies, or mingle in the giddy mazes of the dance, to the excellent mus'e of l'rosperi's fine baud. The boat will leave the wharf at 7 o'clock, and return to the city by 1U o'clock at night. Another Excursion to C\pk Ma\ .?In or der to accommodate a number of persons who could not obtain tickets last Saturday, and many from Alexandria, who were too late for the cars, the Excursion is to be repeated. Passengers will leave the station in thiscity in the 4i o'clock train of cars, and return at ?'? o'clock Monday morning. The number of tickets is limited to fifty, and only >1 is charged for the round trip. The advertise ment in our columns furnishes the particular.* of the contemplated excursion. Stealing.?Ann Barnes was arrested by of ficer W ise for stealing a pocket book contain ing eight dollars. Justice Craudell held her to security for her appearancc at the next term of the Criminal Court. George Smith was also arretted by the same officer for stealing a quantity of beef-teaks, pies. fuel, and soap, lie was held to security tor a further hearing The Kcnkels are Coming'?This old and p >pular corps of Ethiopian serenaders eoutcm pi ite visiting eur city during the coming week, is will be seen by reference to our advertising co'umns.

Mr. Eoitor : Allow me, through the col iiMns of your paper, to correct an imprc-sion that the card of Messrs. Baldwin A Nenniug :s ealfulated to produce upon the citizens who ie? l interested in the subject of which they *pcak; On the Mftth of July, they published in th'j National Intelligencer a card, in which ih y object (as they profess great injustice would be done them) to the use of their plan f>r the erection of a Western Market upon what they choose to designate a hill-side; that it never was intended to be built upon -u -h a -ite, for it wu> drawn for a level mark. t. ami therefore could not be built upon that .?lie. N<w, in answer to that part of their c?r l. I will say the plan never was theirs, for it was furnished to them by the committee appointed by the Corporation, and they merely prepared the working plan according to the directions of said committee. Admitting that the plan was theirs, the bidders would like to bo in formed by the gentlemen, if it was not to be ( is they slate) built upon what they choose to designate the hill-side, where was it to In built ' for when they were invited to bid for tho erection of the said market that site only w:.s named to them The hill-side spoken of was adopted by joint resolution of the Boards of Aldermen and Common Council eight months before the above plan was arranged 1 think Messrs. Baldwin A Nenning have placed themselves in a dilemma, for if the plan w;;s not of their own origin, why undertake to tli.im it' If it was, why should architects, who profess to be catering something new in their line for the community, draw a plan right months after the site had been adopted wi oily unfit for the place designated by the joi.it resolution of the two Boards and ap proved by the Mayor ? The hill-side so much condemned by the above-named geutlciucn w;.s selected tor the very reason that the de scent was what the citizens supposed was needed about a market, that the gutters adja n .it thereto might be kept clean by the show er.- of rain, and not too flat, as many of the gu'ters are around our different markets. I w ill close bv simply stating that the fall of the great hill side is twenty inches to the one hun dred feet, or five inches to every twenty-five l'eit?-upposcd to be not too much by one who is not interested further than the Jt Public Goon. \vy To Mother*nnd Women Generally.?
