The lower river was clear of large craft. Tbe regular trips of the Maryland, ander tbe efficient direction of Capt. Mitchell, are daily growing more popular with people who desire to visit the various summer resort* on the lower river and Bay The attractions of these trips to Norfolk, and the vaiious landings thereabouts, are very great at this season of the year. Ocean View, nine miles below Norfolk, is a delightful place, and presents a universal round of amuse ments to the excursionist. Excellent drives, lr*t rate hotel accommodations; delightful bathsj the tallest kind of fishing, with the necessary appli ances for tbe pupils of Sir lsaak Walton; and every cqoc<- i vable accommodation to gratify the iltk, the healthy, and the indiflerent, are plenti fully provided; and the climate is gloriously sa Lohrious. Persons wishing to get out of town for a few days, and to enjoy the greatest amonnt of fun in the shortest space of time, cannot do bet ter than to patronise our friend Capt. Mitchell and his substantial boat. Arrived at Riley'* wharf schooner Alida. Capt. Caabery, from Philadelphia, with lot) tons of coal for ? Chapln.

Tub WiiiiHiO!) Astlv* ? Abont seventy nine workhouse and poorhouse people are here crowded together in the old small-pox hospital and a temporary workhouse erected since the great Are wbich destroyed the old workhouse; but with all the inconveniences attendant upon the disastrous fire, Mr. tjueen manages to keep the paupers comfortably accommodated. The farm is in excellent condition, and exhibits care on the part of the gardener, Mr. King. The corn, pota toes, parsnips, cabbages, tomatoes, egg plants, and in fact every thiug which was planted in the Spring, has brought forth in so great abundance that it U found difficult to dispose of the large amount of vegetables and fruits which have grown on the place. The land, which is not nat urally of the proper sort for gardening purposes, has been so well tilled by Mr. King that, in the quantity and quality which it produces, It is sec ?pd to none in the vicinity of Washington. i Tnder tbe present management, the workhouse apartment nas been productive of a constantly increasing revenue to the Corporation. The amount of money returned to the Corporation for the present quarter, ending :llst inst . will be up wards of four hundred dollars; and the sum total of this year's product, over and above the expen ses of the Asylum will be upward of sixteen bun* dred dollars, this will be about double tbe amount of any previous year's product. Everything about tbe management of the farm gives evidence of thrifty industry on the part of all concerned; and the Intendant is an hourly visitor to the rooms of the poorhouse inmates, aud watches over them with the solicitude of a parent. The aSairs of the Asylum could not be under more Industrious and economical offi< *r* than Mr. i^ueen and his skil ful assistant, Mr. King. Thk YotrvG Mn'? Chbistiaji Assoctatio*.? The rooms of this association, at the northeast corner of Pennsylvania avenue and Tenth street, are open every day from 0 a. m. to 10 p. m , and strangers and citizens are always welcome. La dies who are regular teachers in any of the mis sion schools are entitled to the use of the library, free of expense, on Wednesday afternoons. The library contains nearly 3,000 volumes, and the reading-room is provided with the leading re views and papers. Annual subscription S*2 in advance. At a meeting of the association on Mondav evening they pasted a resolution offering tbe dif ferent literary associations of the city tbe use of their library and reading-room for 81 per mem ber per annum, provided that at least S10 be sub scribed by each association. Tbe association have in operation In the city three mission Sunday schools : No. 1. on O street. t>etween Fifth and Sixth ; No. 2, at the corner of Massai husetts avenue and Second street; and No. 3, at tbe rooms of the association, on the corner of Pennsylvania avenue and Tenth street. The hour for holding these schools is 3 o'clock p. m. Tbe a'sociations have a meeting and Bible class at their rooms every Sunday afternoon at 5 o'clock. Thi Light I.nfa.itry Committee of Arrange ments are stirring about " fixing things'' for the excursion to Norfoik*n Friday; and meantime there is a general buzz of preparation about town on the part of those designing to participate in this vastly pleasant affair In fact, as long as the Infantry exists as a company it has only to an nounce a ball or excursion to set everybody on the 9*? cir?. and to secure a full attendance. This the members may count on for all coming time. To our Norfolk and Portsmouth friends we can commend the Infantry as accomplished gentle men. as well as gallant soldiers. We admonish them. too. that some of our prettiest Washington girls are going down on this excursion, and the Elizabeth river belle*, beautiful as they unques tionably are, must look to their laurels. A Small Champagke Pabtt.?The house on P street, formerly occupied by the Hon. John Quincy Adams, Is being put in repair by the present owner, Mr. Johnton, and the bouse is In charge of the contractor. Mr. Henderson, who, when the workmen are not engaged upon it, locks U and keeps the keys Yesterday, while the house was locked during tbe temporary al?sence of the workmen, those notorious individuals, John Doe and Richard Roe, forced an entrance to the build ing, and getting in the wine cellar, decided to pan* the day in a retired, quiet champagne drink ing. without songs or toasts. The happy pair indulged so freely that they got too drunk to move, and in that condition were found and taken before Justlce'Smlth. who committed them both to jail for house-breaking. They are not strangers to our police. The M P. Camp Mbeti so, at Monrovia, Fred erick county, Md., has been largely attended, we hear, and tbe exercises have been highly interest ing.

Th* Election Riots.?The New Vork Tri bune has a communication from a writer In this elty, upon the election riots, to which article es pecial attention is called by the editor, as being from "an intelligent and impartial correspond ent." "It Is clear," the Tribune says, "from oar correspondent's review of the testimony, that the Pings were by no means the only, and perhaps ?ot the most heinous trangreseors on that occa sion." The Tribune s correspondent evidently sym pathise* with those he defends, so there Is no drawing sound conclusions from what lie writes. Two First-class Candidates for a term at " the farm" were brought up at the Guard-house this morning. The younger one was in for the first time, having heen picked up by the Guards while laboring under a lit of mania a potu, or, as the officers expressed It, he " Lad the snakes after hiin." The other was T.ncius Culver, an old staler, well known at the farm, and whose right to a long term was indisputable.

As the time Is rapidly approaching when school teachers generally will have to resume their la bors in " teaching young ideas how to shoot," it may not be out of place for us to call the attention of the readers of the Star, both at home and abroad, to the superior facilities which are offered by the various institutions of learning in our cltv for the education of children, male or female, and to the excellent opportunity now olfered to any competent conductor of a first-class female semi nary to secure an Institution of the kind, which has for many years ranked high as one well wor thy the patronage of the public. By reference to another column, it will be seen that the extensive buildings situated on Washington street, in one of the moat beautiful and healthy parts of our city and for many years occupied by Miss Lydia tnglish as a seminary, is for sale or rent. For many years this was one of the most prosperous and popular establishments of the kind in this section of country; and we believe that all that is necessary to render it such again, is a competent corps of teachers who will, with proper discip line, d> vote tberuselves to their business. The location Is certainly an excellent one, being ele vated and healthy, and supplied with ample ground.*, well shaded, for recreation, to say noth ing of the extensive and well-adapted buildings The duties of the Mathematical and Classical Academy of Mr. P. A. Bowen will be resumed on the 7th of September. Of the character for effic iency and usefulness of this institution we need lay nothing. Mr. Howeii's unprecedented success as a teacher of youth, and the almost un bounded popularity of Lis academy is a sufficient recommendation aud guarantee to those who may intrust him with the education of their sons, that no pains will be spared to properlycultivate both their mind*and morals. Clinton Academy, formerly under the direction of the Rev. T. W. Simpson, will also be opened on the 7th of September. This heretofore very popular school has been taken by Mr. George Arnold, SI.A. This gentleman is from Balti more, where he has for several years been en gaged in the instruction of youth, in connection with one of the most efficient teachers in that city, Mr J A. Morgan, principal of the Light Strei-t Institute. Heroine, among us with the strongest kind of recommendations, both at home and from elsewhere Parents desirous of securing the ser vices of a first-rate teacher for their sons will do well to examine his circulars and advertisement in another column. Thedutiesof Mrs. Gen. Wheeler's Montgomery Street Academy for young ladies will In? resumed on Tuesday, September 1st.

The advance in black teas. Oolongs, since last December, has been fifteen cents per pound: and Young Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced au advance of one huiidred per cent, over !a*t season's dosing priccs. "It will thus lie seen that the strong and rapid advance in the toa market has been the result of short supplv and active demand ; but when if is con sidered that we may hear at au? moment ol the en tire suspension ol shipments at Siianshai, and. in fact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war, a!l live ports of entry lu Chin?i, will proliably lie placed under strict blockade, it would not be surprising to see Teas at a tuucii higher figure than they have yet attained."
