The members of the Chapel held a fair at the Church during last week, by which tljey eb?ared upward of *WK>?qnlte a handsome sum for the loeality. This sum is to be applied towards de fraying the ex]>en*es of building -the church The members being anxious to pay the debt still owing the builder, invited some, of the good am ateur performer* of Washington to Wye a Con cert at the ncW Church, which Is still Unfinished inside; and. accordingly, a Concert was adver tised for Thursday (last) night; and several friends of the Church, to the number of a dozen or more ladies and gentlemen, proceeded yester day evening from this city, to Hunter Chapel, to lend their voice* to this laudable object. At the new Church all wa? dark wbfn the party arrived; U having rained during the day, and those living near the place concluding that the affair would be postponed. Very toon, however, lights ap peared, and messengers were dispatched to hi rbrm the neighbors that the singers had arrived; and soon aftwward the audience l>egan to drop in by twos and threes', until quite a crowd had coltectrd together. The lady concertixers in the mean time retired to the Church gallery, where they filled up the interim with the usnal tying up of tbeir Imu k hair, and adjustment of drapery The male performers remained outside and smo ked cigars, while several persons interested in the Church, were busllv engaged in removing various reminiscences of the late Fair, In shape of crockery, iabMfs, doll babies, etc At half-past 8 tho concert began, the preacher having just previously announced from the stage that the audience who had cot in without tne usual form of depositing a 25 cent piece at the door would be expected to pay their money. A hat vai passed round, and the requisite right to hear the concert being obtained by the audience, the performances we.e opened by the national hymn?"Let every heart rejoice and sing,"? which was very well rendered by the dozen or so singers, with the help of a big and little fiddle and a diminutive ruelodeon. Several* los. duet", quartettes, Ac , were performed in very good style indeed, considering the circumstance*. At the close of the performance, the Choir re ceived a kind invitation to adjourn to the hous<* of Mrs. General Hunter and partake of a lunch, which they accepted Arrived at the hospitable mansion of Mrs H ., the com|>any were treated to coffee, hot rolls, broiled hain, cold ditto, pickled oysters, corned beef, fresh butter, (such as we don't buy in the Washington market,) various kinds .of ?ind, in short, almost cverythingin the wTJ^df eatables to tempt the apjxitite, p^viously sfiarj>eni^ty>y a jolting ride over a rough road, and augmented by the recent performances In the church. While doing jus tice to the tempting viands spread before ns. we could not help thinking, if tliat was excellent Mr*. Hunter's idea of a lunch, what must her dinners l>c ? Bidding adieu to the kind-hearted hostess,the partv started homewards, and during the lide to the city the fun and good humor was universal. Borer.?The press gets bored In more ways than cau be enumerated in a hurry, by all sorts of people, who a*k and expect answers to every conceivable question. The Associated Press tel egraphic agents are particularly the victims of these people of an inquisitorial turn of mind Their ofli-e in Washington, on the night of the Baltimore election, was the scene of somecuriou.s incidents, one of which we give i?elow. Tlie gentlemanly auent, whose time on occa sions of that kind is far more precious than gold to niin, had just received a dispatch of vital im portance to parties living in Richmond, Va., who were anxiously waiting at the office iu that eity to receive it. He had just written it out, and j starting full-tilt for the Southern otticc. was met on the threshold of his door by Air Bore-em, who asked, with a countenance expressive of the | liveliest curiosity, " What's the news from Bal timore V' " Nothing sir, of importance," said the polite functionary. " Isn't there T that strange.': said Bore-em ; " 1 was just told some astonishing news about the carryings-on in that city. No truth in it, eh ?" " W nat was it, sir, if 1 may be so bi Id ?" '?Why Sell-em just told me that the Know Nothings had just murdered an Anti in the most brutal manner, and had cut oil his head, which they had stuck on a pole, and were marching in procession about town with. No truth in it, hey?" *? I have received no such intelligence,said the a^ent; "excuse me sir, 1 have an important matter to attend to, and?" " Ha ! what is it; anything 'bout the riots, say, what's?" '? Really sir, it Is a private matter," said the a^ent disappearing down the stairway, " and you must excuse me.*' " Say," continued Bore-em, " can't you let a fellow know what it is?" And the man of curiosity followed on, intent on finding the. matter out, and probably succeed ed?over the left! The ayent desires us to say that he distributes his intelligence to none but those who patronize I bis cthce and pay for telegraphic information The city newspapers do this, and they get all the news of public interest from other cities through hiiu; and he recommends that the large family of boies who take up so much of his time, when busy in his otfiee. subscribe to a daily pape.", and pav for it, and then read it. I'retty good advice. Tub Rivkr ?Arrived at the Long Bridge, yes terday, a large load of piles, to be used in the re pairs now going oil there. At Riley's wh.trf, schr. Chief, Capt.
