OX THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE. Although passing quietly through the streets, our citizens were sufficiently on the ?/*i n>? to be aware of the approach of the procession, and everywhere along the line of progress the side walks. windows and balconies were crowded with Npectators, while at various points flags were dung out. and .handkerchiefs waved to welcome the visitors AT THE wniTE HOCSE.

The President was not aware of the proposed visit of the excursiouists at so early an hour; but on the Information reaching him. at the Soldiers' Home, his Summer retreat, he set out for the city and on his arrival met the several members of the Cabinet, and then, accompanied by Mayor Ma groder. they proceeded to the South grounds, where the scattered grouj? immediately swarmed about the Chief Magistrate, and then commenced such a hat d-shaking as only Western men are capable of administering, and which wj? kept up until the large party had filed past the Presi dent and tendered their cordial digital courtesies. The President, who, by the way, looks vastly im proved by his stay at Ins pleasant rural retreat, appeared in excellent spirits and sustained his otdeal as if enuowed w ith muscle* of Iron.

Georgetown, takes : place in the College grounds to-morrow (See advertisement ) De\th of Mb Robert Farnham ?The sad intelligence re&rhed this city yesterday afternoon of llir shocking death of Mill. old an?l fWpeJi'rt citizen. Mr Farnham left Washington yesterday ui??ru? ing, in thc^,', o'clock train. with two daughters and a sou for a summer tour to Long Branch, I.ake George, Burlington, Montreal, and tbe White M ouu'.ain*. and seemed to anticipate the trip with great pleasure. Fii*nds who saw him at the car* remarked that he was in better than his usual spirits. It appears that 011 reaching the sideling at Staunton, a few miles this side of Wilmington, Del., the train was waiting for the express train to pass, and that Mr. Farnham got out and went into the station-house, where lie stood for a slum time converging with some ladies. As the ex press train, however, approached within about one hundred yards of the station-house lie sud denly walked out on the track towards the com ing train, appaiently in deep thought. Rev. Septimus Tustiu ami others observing the danger of his position, shouted to hiui to save himself, and he looked up, but the express train approaching at the rate of forty inil?n an hour, was close iijkiii him. and he received a blow upon the breast from the bumper of the engine which broke several of his ribs, and whirling him around threw him with such violence against the other train as to break his neck The engineer gave the usual warning by sounding the whistle, but it w.?s impossible to stop the train seasonably. Mr. Farnham was near-sighted, and it is sup j posed was not aware of the approach of the ex j press train. The accident happened at 2.^ p. til. ' The threechildren of the deceased, two daughters i of 14 and lt> years of age, and a son of 12, were , left in the greatest distress, and were taken iu charge by Rev Mr. Tustiu. Mr. Jordan Murray, of Wilmington. Delaware, (formerly of this city,) on lieing apprized of the sad affair. took charge of the remains until the arrival of Mr. Blancnard of this city, (connected with Mr. Farnham iu business,) when the bodv having been packed in ice. was placed in charge of a Wilmington undertaker, and returned to this | city, reaching here by the 0 o'clock train this I morning. Mr. Farnham was a man of remarkably me ! thodicnl business habits, and previous to starting i on this trip, had left his papers and business in Cerfect oider. His demise will make a wide lank in the business and other circles in which he has moved. Fatal Accident.?Another of those distie<* ing accident*, resulting from the careless hand ling of fire-arms, took place yesterday, by which an estimable young man was instantly huriicd to another world. About 6 o'clock yesterday evening, Win. Rich ardson, a printer?a nephew of Mr. Win. Carey Jones?went to the room of his friend. Albert Bargie, and in spoit picked up a revolver, knife, I and single-barreled pistol, and flourishing them ' in the air advanced upon Mr. Bargie, reciting some mock heroic verses from one of the poets, lie elevated the revolver in the direction of Mr. B. who attempted to get hold of it, and in so doing the pistol was accidently exploded, the >>;tl 1 tak i nig effect in Richardson's stomach, and in less than half an hour he was a corpse. i These facts were stated before Justice Donn by Mr. A C. Watkins, who was piesent at the time. The most perfect good feeling existed l?etweeu the two youug men. as was proven by the concur rent testimony of Mr. Watkins, Mess is Charles P. Di mi try and P B. Foster. The young men had made arrangement* to lodge at Mr. Fill's, in order that they might be frequently together, and Mr. Ricliaidson had that afternoon left his former residence to occupy a loom at Mr. Fill**. Mr. Bargie appeared toln- greatly disln-sscd by the calamity, and anxiously awaited an examina tion. lie was waited on by .Messrs Ward and Sessford, of the Auxiliary Guaid, and went with i them to the central guard house, where the ex amination wa> held by Justice Donn?W.
