Trinity Ckurik ?In the morning the Rev. Dr Butler, rector, discoursed from 1st Epiatle of John 5.*2t?4 Little children, keep yourselves from idols." Idolatry, properly so called, attributed to things and persons th< powers and properties which belong to God alone, and rendered to them the affection, homage, and service which belong alone to Him. But the devotion to any earthly * good or pleasure is likewise called idolatry. One is properly and tbe other metaphorically so. In both cases every man bestowed upon tbe creature the love and the reverence due to tbe creator In the one case he says to the object of his devotion. - Be thou mv God," and in the other he says " Be thou iastead of God." They did not understand St John to limit his caution exclusively to the one species of idolatry. He then proceeded to warn his brethrsn against this latter description of idolatry, viz: the consecration of all their powers and affections to earthly things.

The examination throughout proved to be pleasing and most satisfactory, giving conclusive evidence of ability, close application, and attention on the part of their highly accomplished teacher, who may well feel a conscious pride in her success in teaching '-the young Idea how to shoot." This is a most interesting school, composed (with but two or three exceptions) of pretty little, bright-eyed, cheerful, and well-beLaved girls, ranging in age from 6 to 13 years The proficiency of these little girls in the studv of vocal music, under the supervision of Prof Daniel, (who was present on this occasion,) is indeed most remarkable?the precision and accuracy with which they kept time, the strength and sweetness of voice among such young children, was well calculated to excite surprise and astonishment If parents of children who have not yet availed themselves of Prof Daniel's services, could have been present to hear the little girls and boys of Primary No. 4 sing so sweetly on examination day, they would certainly do so now. What accomplishment Is more aeslrable for young ladles than that of possessing a good knowledge of music? The examining trustee took occasion at the close of the exercises to congratulate the children upon the satisfactory manner In which they had acquitted themselves, and the teacher for the success that bad crowncd her labors, and then Introduce >>? c ? u- ?* >.<. .?ir r.iullger. who expressed himself highly gratified with tbe examination, and especially pleased with the singing- He concluded with some Interesting remarks, addressed to tbe children, which stemed to be well received, and highly gratifying to them.

Thi Hot*ls ?Since Friday, and up to thit morning, onr principal hotels have be?n at thoroughly crowded with ttrangert as during any week preceding the inauguration of a President of the United States.

Yesterday, a large number left in the special train, but the rrowd did not appear to dimintab TbW morning the exodua was more general, and the ball* and porticoes of the hotels were comparatively desert<d. Yesterday was devoted to the discussion of the fitness of planks for the platform, and of various < <indidMrs to stand thereon. The delegates, of courae^Tiad little to do with these public dis -uaaions, they were generally participated in by the "bone and sinew'' who were attracted to the hotels by the crowds of gueats.

The building wa? erected by the issue of stock, and waa valu?d at about #1,000, over three fonrtU? of which b-longed to Mr. Win Rlgglee, and on Tuesday next the property waa to be sold. The circumstances throughout indicate the willful act of an incendiary. It was not insured. Although it Is said to be the doty of the police to go to all flrrs. riots, fce , for the preservation of the peace and protection of property, a riot occurred immediately In front of the President's Mansion, and thougn It continued for some time, yet not a policeman was seen to venture within striking distance; at least no arrests were made that we could hear of.

"Our Tommy." '-Kveryiwdy's Tommv," aiid bis "lady lw" in Washington.

It Is nevtrtheless true. I Vegetables and flruits so produced are daily sold in the different markets of the city as first quality, evidenced by their large dimensions, when In reality they are not fit to to eaten by man or beast; strong in taste, aud unhealthful In the highest degree, inducing bowel complaints and the ' numerous diseases attendant upon a vitiated state of the blood. I think of but one remedy, and that is for tbe city authorities to leqaire that it ; shall be mixed with earth at leaattwo years before being sold for use If the evil be not remedied speedily, the inhabitants of the city win probably experience ravages of death unsurpassed by any city on the continent, especially among Ha infantile population. ^Vim. 8** Notici In anothat column or a Mr, commencing to morrow at Langley, Fairfax county, Va , for the benefit of the Method ?t Epltcapal Church Booth at that place.
