About 8 o'clock, the Bell and Everett Club of this city, cumbering about'200 persona, marched from their headquarters <>n Seventh street to the steamboat Nnding, wli-rc they took passage on the ?team?-r Phenix. They were accompanied by Withers' excellent band, which discoursed various stirring airs. Sometime previous to the arrival of the procession, a large number had repaired to the boat, where also in waiting was t'rosperi's band The members of the Clnb wore suspended from a button hole of the coat by a piece of blue ribbon a neat little galvanized medal, on one side of which was inscribed the words '-John Bell, the Union Candidate for the Presidency, and on ths reverse side "The Constitution and the Uuion, now and forever " In the proctssion were Y>orne two AmerictB cusigns, above one of which floated a streamer having printed on the one side. In large characters, the inscription. "TheConstitution, the Union, and the enforcement of the laws," and on the <'*i,er, '-Bell and Kverett. the Union cand!H?t?? " On the upper end of the same pole was a mxia.ll bell, arranged *o that the slightest motion of the pole would cause It to jingle The hour of starting having arrived, the boat moved oil' from the landing amid the loud huzzas of those gathered on the wharves, which was heartily responded to by thoae on the boat The band now struck up a patriotic air. and tbe )>oat, by this time fairly started, sped on its way m-ijt-sticsily down the bosom of the noble Potomac, hearing on its deck and in * its saloons young men and old, some of the latter of whom could not have been leas than eighty years of age Ttese venerable old gentlemen were apparently deeoly Interested in the cause which they espoused, and seemed to take as much pride in displaying the little inedal in the button-hole of theircoat. as if it had been awarded them for some deed of valor or valuable service On tbe passage down, the Thenix stopped at Alexandria, to take those on board who lmrf h*??n unable to go on the steamer Gipsey, which had left a short while before Beyond Alexandria, crafts of numerous kinds were fallen in with, plying their way to the designated locality Among others was the packet Flying Cloud, from Georgetown, engaged to bring the Bell and Kvere?t Club of that city. Thus far everything had gone on pleasantly and without cause for dissatisfaction or disquiet to any; but on arriving at the mouth of Piscataway creek, near Fort Washington, where the lilpsey was to meet the Phenix after ita (tilpsey's) first trip to Farmington. and convey the passengers up the creek, (the Phenix being too large a steamer W. n.-cm I1IT nianuw !?I refill. ) JjreiU inCOnveDlrnc? was experienced For fear the Glpsey might not be able to ascend the stream if too large a number were placed on her, It was deemed advisable by the committee to engage the Flying Cloud, which was at the time (tossing near, to convey a portion of them This, it was thought, would without doubt prevent the possibility of b?lng grounded on account of the Gipsev drawiug too much waV-r But It was soon discovered that, even with the limited number on l>oard. in consequence of the low slate of the tide it was lm|tt*4lble for tne boat to make any headway. All were now In a quandary as to what course to pursue. The Flving Cloud bad left with its pasaengers.and in all protiability would not return until evening, unless speedily sent for. Accordingly several small craft were hailed, that information of their condition might be sent to Farmlngton; but all refused to approach the steamer, alleging as a cause that they were afraid of being sunk by a too great number getting in; and each craft perx ltpd In this refittttI ?* ? were made them. Seeing no prospect of reaching Farmington until near 3 o'clock, if they remained on the Oipsey. a? the tide would not riae to a sufficient height before that hour, a request waa made of the pilot (who waa acting as captain in the place of that officer, who was detained at Alexandria through sickness) to allow them the use of the small boat belonging to the steamer This be absolutely refused to do. stating that, as now tbeyiwere on the boat, they would have to remain there until the tidecame up, or themselves secure other means of conveyance. They appealed to him. stating that several of the speakers were on the boat, and it was necetnry for them to reach Farmingtoa at an early hour, and further, in addition to the boat's hiding intolerably warm, on account of its compactness there was no drinking water other than tbe warm river water, with no ice to cool it. The pilot was unmoved by this appeal, aud flrinly adhered to bis determination The committee then resolved to aasuine the responsibility. and take the boat; butonsearch being !lisd?- for oars none ronld h?* found and nn thli project had to be given up. By this time the Flying Cloud," having heard through some of those In the smaller craft which had reached Farmington. of the condition of the "Glpsey," w-* s'-en heaving in sight. Thia of course put an end t<> the Tarioua projects which had been concrived of reaching ttie pla^e of destination otherwise than in the " Gipiey." It was not long before the Flying Cloud" was along sideand filled with pa??engers. The " Gipaey," b?-ing relieved of a portion of its weight, was enabled to ascend the stream, together with the packet On reaching the shore thev were greeted by a round of tbree hearty cheers, and all, on leaving the boats, immediately formed into line, and under the Inspiring music of tbe different bands, proceeded to the place arranged for the meeting. Tbe place selected for the purpose was a shady pot, near the shore, where a refreshing breeze from the river waa constantly enjoyed On arriv Ing there, we found the shore lined with vehicles of every description, and a horse tied to almost every tree ia the vicinity. The stage was tastefully decorated with dags of various descriptions, aud seats provided for the accommodation uf the crowd The fair s?x, though not numerously, ? was well represented in the persons of some of the lovliest of --Old Prince George's" daughters. After the execution of several national airs by the bauds in attendance, the mreting was organized by the election of Dr J H.
