TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 2s.
Those who leavo tho city during tho sum
mer can have the Gazeite mailed to them for
any length of time, and the address changed a;
often as desired. The subscription price is 5U ct>
per mouth, or at that rate for a greator or lesi
For this section fair weather, wiuds generally
easterly, slight? banges in temperature.
The Regatta.?The coming regatta bids
fair to be the event of the season, as the
various committees have been untiring in
their efforts to make the occasion one
worthy of "tho day we celebrate," aud our
noble Potomac, with the numerous crews,
in their handsome and various boating cos
l times, gaily gliding to and fro upon its
broad bosom, will be a spectacle long to be
remembered by those, who will be fortunate
enough to be present on this glorious day.
The commodious wharves of the Pioneer
Mills have been engaged for the occasion,
and will be supplied with ample seating ca?
pacity to accommodate a large concourse of
spectators; and, as the ditlerent races will
begin opposite the blutls, and end at a stake
opposite the boat house of the Old Domin?
ion Club, there will be no better stand on
the entire river front, as it will in ad?
dition be shaded, early iu the evening,by the
towering building. To assist the boat club
of our city iu defraying the expenses of en?
tertaining the visiting crews in royai style,
worthy of the well-known hospitality of our
good old town, an admission fee to the
wharves, of twenty-live cents, will be
charged; ami which, should tho day prove
to be a fair one, will stand in no comparison
with the amouut of enjoyment obtained.
The races will begin at 2:30 p. tn., but. as a
great deal of pleasure may be had in antici?
pation, aud in witnessing the preparations
for the races, as well as the preparatory
trials of skill of the dillerent oarsmen, we
would advise all to be on hand earlier, und
thus obtain the full measure of enjoyment,
as well ad a comfortable aud prominent
seat. After the races, a grand excursion to
.Marshull Hall will be given, where the
prizes will be distributed, aud a good time
bad generally. A full programme will be
published in due time, aud ready for
distribution on the day of the regatta.
We bad the pleaniire of beiug Bbown one
of the hamLuuie club badges, especially
gotten up for the occasion. A broad red,
white and blue ?ilk ribbon, with a neat gold
lassal at the bottom, and otherwise orna?
mented, with "Did Dominion Boat Club,
Alexandria, V*a." printed in gold letters on
its surface, are tho principal features of the
badge, which, by mean.-, of a pin, securely
inserted, may be fasteued to the dress or
coat, aud as every one, so desiring, may
wear this beautiful souvenir of the festive
occasion, doubtless they will be iu great
demand. The prize medals, for which sev?
eral eastern manufacturers have competed,
reflect great credit upon our native skill,
and as they will he on exhibition by to-mor?
row, in the store wiudow of Mr. 11. C.
Acton, their designer, it will be unneces
.-ary to describe them here. Two tugs have
been chartered, one for the use of the
referees, aud the other for the press. As it
is the purpose of the "Old Dominion," to
eclipse all former State regattas on this oc?
casion, and as the club will therefore neces?
sarily be at heavy expense, a committee
will wait upon the public spirited citizens,
to solicit such aid, as they may be willing
to lend; and as every one is more or less in?
terested in the leputatior. of our citv, and
would wish its gue?ls to leave with plensaut
remembrances of their visit, it is expected
that the cilizeus will respond in their usual
liberal manner, and thus make the Fourth a
day long to be remembered with pride and
pleasure by the entire community. The
crew of the University Sctiool club, of
Petersburg, uie expected here aj early as
to morrow, by the 11:7 A. a: F. train.

We have been fortunate enough to secure another great bargain lot of
That we are retailing at about one half of their wholesale value. In
this lot of goods are a large number of outside sizes and extra lengths.
These are very fine and unusually good values. Remember the ex?
tra sizes and extra lengths. Next look at the
and you will see that there is not the slightest necessity for any one
being without neat, pretty and serviceable suits.
OUR WHITE GOODS
stock is complete in all numbers and is so varied in style, quality and
price that almost every one can Gnd something to suit them, In this
department we have left a few WHITE ROBES that we are closing
out at extremely low prices.
There is one thing to which we wish to call especial attention, and
that is the entirely new
PINE WOOL CARPET
which is made exclusively from the long leaf or needle of the pine tree
of North Carolina. It is a clean, healthy, sale, durable and cheap floor
covering, especially adapted to the requirements of hotels, steamboats,
ollices, hallways, staircases, dining rooms and all places where constant
use makes durability a necessity. We will take pleasure in showing
the testimonials from prominent banks, hotels, armories and others
that are now using it.
We also have an extra good stock of MATTINGS, and in fact the
entire stock is unusually good for the season.
