L<m:AL INTKLMOENCE. Thk IVniBtS Vi?ito?s ? After some hour* spcn* by our visitor. ye.stei day. in examining va rious t> of interest about town, and in the ^joynfllt of private hospitalities, the scattered party wa- re-mustered for the? TKir to M??r*r viwojt. At two oVI?ck, tho excursionists. ncc-impanied by numbers of WMbiiigtoiiiHiiH. assembled on board the lieor^e Washington. an<l weie soon oil on tbc broad bo>om of the Iwauliful Potomac. The trip down w?* characterised by ;?real good fieliiir; and friendship on th*1 part of all ton* ?' in d?the Mayor, together with the members of the City Councils* and the coinmittee.s, doing ? vervthing In their power to make the trip a pleasant one to tno *tranger visitors; and from the remark* of gratification and pleasure of those la dns and gentlemen comprising the party, we should judge the efforts were not unsuccess ful. Purine th* trip down, the excursionists were regaled with crackers, cheese. and ice water. ? here being neither time nor room on board the lioat for more extended hospitalities. The various t uids played, alternately, some beautiful popular airs, giving to the occasion a lively and agreeable ? irn. The du ks of the little steamer were crowd t d to an extent that was productive of some close n> king, there being upward* of 5UU persons on l oard l'hi.s fa< t. however, did not interfere with ?hi general harmony which prevailed, and all of the vi?if>rs seemed. by their jovial merriment, to I>e largely par?i? ip.itnig in the universal satisfac t ion. Arrived at the shore of the Washington estate, ? he party dwmliai k< il and made rapid strides up ? he winding paih to the lomh. The laugh and iwst now hushed, and with faces expressive of re spc< t amounting to the most profound veneration for the memory of the great Revolutionary Chief tain, the excursionists gathered around thespo* where all that is earthly of the out e great man now in the silence of death. The Mariut Band, led by l'rc>f. J.

Nearly every visitot bioke a small twig from the overhanging woodbine, which clusters rouud ? he tomb, and the paity then prtx eedetl to the Vernon Mansion, which was. as usual, thrown open i'or their reception The visitors, after remaining here for some time, taking a stroll through ihe gardens and the M.rrounding grounds, and gathering from every bush a sprig, or from the pebbly ground a me to l?eever afterwards treasured up by ibem '.w a reminiscence of the occasion, left the house ?vi?h many expressions of regret at the shortness of 'he visit. At the tomb, in reluming to the ltoat the party nil stood for .?i>\\* moments grouped around the vault while a dagnerreoti pe of them was taken by Prof. \imnio, of W hitehurst"* bailey They thru proceeded to the boat ami in a few moments were oB again for Washington.

In the follow letter, received from the Rev.Sep J timus 1 ustin, will l>c found some further partlcu ; iars in regard to the sho:king death ol Mr Farn ham: Wilmington. Delaware. July 21, 1-37. Editor of the Star:?Having recovered in a measure front the shock, though not the sadness, occasioned by the sudden death of our worthy fellow-citizen, Mr. Robert Farnham, I hasten, as an eye-witness, to give you the details of that melancholy event. A more striking illustration of the deceptive character of human hope- and e*|?eetations can scarcely be imagined. Mr. Farn ham left W ashington on Monday morning last in company with his two daughters and his son, a lad of perhaps twelve years of age, with a view of spending a portion of the summer in traveling for recreation and amusement. Aliout 2 o'clock on Monday the train going .\orth turned aside at Ihe Man ton station, six or eight miles from Wil mi.igton, to make way for tli** Kxnress train "oln"' lo (lie South. As is usual in socu tase-s of tem porary delay, a number of gpiitleme-n, Mr F among the number, got out of the cars ai.,1 I0ii e-red about, wailing for the signal to resume their places. But a few moment elapsed, and the shrill whistle of the Express, followed by the stern mandate of the conductor, " All aboard " soon brought the stragglers back to their s ts. I occupiod a seat in the last ear. and happening to ook out of the window, saw Mr. F. walkiii" de liberately ,?n the track, and in the direct ion of the I.xpress tra;n, but apparently not conscious of his proximity to the rapidly advancing engine. I called to him at the top of my voice ?* to escape lor his iife, wlivreupon he made a sprin" to ward^ the car in which I sat. but it was too Tate riie cow-catcher tripped up his feet, and hurled ii.iii with teuitic violence against the other train I lie Express train pursued its course unconscious ot what happened, and our train began to niu^e The sad intelligence soon readied the engineer. the motion ol the tr?iin was i>roi!t(>tly irrcsteil. All. 1*. s body Wa< found on the spa< e lietween the two track*, with tiie face uppermost, and the hands somewhat elevated and elene lied. One of the msscngers tenderly raised the head and bathed the fai e in cold water, but the tide of life had ceased to flow. His children, whom lie had left but a few moments before full of hope and joy. gathered around I be lift-less remains of their lather, and presented such a picture of an"ulsli as |i h,,,*. never to witness again. We pro, eeded to Wilmington wilh the corpse, wheie it was properly cared for, and much .sympathy was shown by thecitizensof that beautiful city forthe bereaved and siititicn children. At lio clock last night, the corpse was placed in the car under the i art' of Mr. Ulanchaicl, who. in obcdiruct to & telegraphic despatch, had started from W ashiii" ton to Wilmington. W ith the sequel of this rad story you aie already but too familiar.
