The first shad that have ben seen in the upper river this spring were taken at Hunter s landing yesterday, when a haul was m*d>- which brought to shore two very fine ones.

He says tbat believing that veneration for the memory of Washington sleeps only, he trusts that be people will not wholly ignore the cause and object Let each one but spare a mite, the loss of which he will not feel, and the sum total of so many millions received through the thousand offices will go far towards enabling the Society t? th* inin^ndt'H worlr *nrt tn rnmnUt* tbe imposing structure. He, therefore, respectfully request* outgoing postmasters to commend the system to tbelr successors, and the incoming to imitate the laudable example of their predecessors who have made collections, and in cases where the latter have not responded and put up box a, to have them erectad, and to forward such contributions, however small, to the Superintendent ?A wedding is an entertainment that always "draws" whether the times are fiuah or ty^htj and when the bappy candidates for mstnroony have a wide circle or frienda, and the affair comes off in church, the pressure is occasionally tremendous, u was the case last night at Ryland Chapel, where fortunate Mr. George C.

Instead of standing in the gateway as usual, when tbe prisoners puss up to their rooms, double locked It. and had guards called, & to be ready In casr the anticipated demonstration should be made. The prisoners manifested no little dlscomfitment on finding their plot dlscov- ' ered and frustrated, and of course had to feive It up for that time: but on Investigating tbe matter further, the Warden discovered that the prisoners \ had provided for a possible discovery, aud were to make the attempt the next morning (Sunday) on being marched from the prison yard to the J chapel. ' In the Impossibility of ascertaining thefull extent of tbe plot, and In order to make sure of his j ground, the warden addressed a note to Major Ramsay, commandant at tbe Arsenal, stating tbe J ftcta, and requesting him to have a force of the ITnit#-d Statin tropins rpa t\ xr ir? r ? ? bould be required The Major replied, tendering such assistance as tbe wnrden might desire at a moment * warning.
