The Rivkh ?At the mouth of tbecanal off 17th street, three lumber schooners arrived yesterday, heavily laden. ^ estetdav evening the fishermen at Hunter's fishing grounds, below Arlington, in hauling for perch, rock, Jcc., brought up eight large shad At Riley s Wharf?Arrived schrs Emma .'ane and Wm Shear, from Port Walthall, with 150 ami I'Jti tons of coal for the gas company. At Stone tc Magmder's wharf?Arrived schr Samosef. from Salisbury, witb40 000 feet of lum ber for S Norment Between five and 6 o'clock yesterday evening, the main steam pipe of tbe engine at Van Ri? wi'-k's planing mill exploded, but without doing any further damage than destroying some of the surrouiiding machinery. The preparations for'opening Water street du ring the coming Summer, creates tbe necessity for removing several buildings which now stand in ILp 1 \ n* ot said street tODthfr location*, am on" which is Van Riswick's mill, which the propri etor is making arrangements to remove, and re build at a convenient place contiguous, with ex tensive improvements. At 'he Aipria Creek fishing landing yesterday, Mr rbecker the proprietor. in hauling for win ter lish. brought up one hundred of the finest shad ever canght at that point, some of wMch measured eighteen inches lit length, and w.-re very fat. ? Helow, there are the nv st encouraging pros pects for a tine nnd prcfitable fishing season; a id active preparations are being made. A bout one week ago, a colored professor of the art pugilistic, named Wm Vincent, who is said to have been Tom Hyer's trainer, in the early days of that worthy, passed through Washing ton to Alexandria, where he made arrangements for a sparring exhibition to come otl there. He then got on In-a d the steamer Page to return to W ashington t'u t Price, in passing around to collect the fare from the passengers came across V ioccitj ami Lin Irpp pApr* as u*nal The man made reply that be did not choose to show his papers, and pulling out a dime and t wo coppers, said, as he held them forth, that that wa* all tbe free papei* be chose to show Capt. Price informed him that tbe law compelled bun to cause the f,ee papers ?.f any colored man, passing out of the State or Virginia, to be exhib ited. or said colored man must be vouched for by some responsible white man To all this the darkey still remained inditt.*rent. and when the boat reached the landing, he endeavored to go ashore, but was prevented by Capt Price. He then hauled off and struck the Captain Iwo heavy b ows, wbic.h bad the effect to disable him, but several of tbe deck hands sprang upon tbeMiow and secured bim, after some trouble, and locked him up in the hold. He was taken to Alexan dra, and there arrested, and taken before a ma gistrate, who heard tbe evidence of the Captain and the hands, and sentenced the prisoner to re ceive thirty-nine lashes on the bare back, pay a fine or and give security that he would never ccme into the State of Virginia again The puu isbment was inflicted on last Sunday morning. The Uvio.i Pit a y km Meetings ?The great religious awakening o! IrS- is felt in Washing ton, though without the feverish excitement tbat has characterized its manifestations in some other parts of the country. At Rev l)r J C. Smith's Church, 9tb street, yesterday even'ng, a Union Piayer-meeting was held, which lasted one boil', and was attended by more people than there were seats in the house to accommodate. At tbe sa cred a I tar were the R?-v. Clergy of the city; all differences of opinion, and all petty sectional jealouse* apparently forgotten. The exercises consisted of prayer, singing, and exhortation, interspersed with the reading cf letters and ex tracts in relation to the revivals now going on at the North; and a deep interest se-in-d to pervade the entire congregation in relation to all those matters. Prominent among those at the altar were the Rev Mr Smith, Rev. Mr. Graabury, Dr Gurley, Rev Mr Sampson. Rev. Mr Finkfe and others: and seveiai lay brethren joined in tbe interesting exercises The hour being thus con sumed. Rev Dr. Smith addressed some excel lent words or exhortation to those around bim and then read the hymn commencing '?J ust as I am. without a plea, O Lamb of Ood, I come to Thee," in which the whole congregation joined, and the meeting closed with tbe lienediction.

(iioMiiuwi, March 23, IS? The religious feeling which has been abroad la different parts of the country for some time past, ban reached our city, and a union prayer meeting was beld Testerday aflernon in the M P. Church, on Congress street. There was a large congregation, composed of almost all de nominations in attendance, and quite a solemn feeling appeared to pervad* the entire congrega tion. These meetings will be held in the same church every afternoon this week, commencing a quarter before 5, and closing a quarter before 6 o'clock. We learn that Potomac (Masonic) Lodge has pnrcha?ed the eligibly located property on High street, near Bridge, now occupied by Samuel McKnight, Esq., where they intend, at an early day, to erect a handsome hall. An individual, by the name of Archibald Brown, applied at tire watch-house last nigbt for lodging, and wa* taken in and placed in one of the cells, where he was found this moruiug dead. Coroner Woodwa d held an iuquest over the body, and the jury rendered the following ver dict: "Hethe said Archibald Brown, came to the watch-house, In Georgetown, on the night of the '?id of March, 1858, for a lodging, and In the morning was found dead in the cell of said watch-house; and, from the evidence, the jury believe bis death was caused by dissipation and exposure. The last two years of his life, be was a vagrant, and had no visible means of supjiort." We mav have something more to say about this mutter and place hereafter. S. QEOEOKTOWJ ADVERTI8EMT8.
