Pic-Nic.?The Hucksters' Association give
a plc-nic at Washington Park this afternoon
and evening. This in their third pic-nic, and
those preceding it have been pleasant parties.
Robp.krt and Rbcovbry op tiib Monet.?
Tuesday afternoon, a discharged soldier named
John Slavin, in company with a man named
Wm. Lacey, went into a bouse kept by Mrs.
Elizabeth Smith, on I street south, bet ween ^th
and 9th streets, wbere, besides those named,
he met a woman named Kate McCormick, and
two men, George Shafer and Smith. Here the
whole party got on a drunk, and after dark
Slavin was put out by the others. Word was
sent to the station house, and officers Pullin
and Maxwell arrested Slavin, and took the
above parties to the station house. Slavin com
plained that four hundred dollars had been
stolen from him, and the entire party was
searched, and nothing being found, they were
placed in the cells. Yesterday morning they
were brought o*t before Justice Boswell, and
they were taken singly in a private room,
where they were stripped and searched, and
the officers were about giving up all hopes of
recovering the money, when one of the officers
noticed that one side of Lacey's mouth had a
suspicious bulge, and making him open it,
two of the missing one hundred dollar bills
were found. Being thus far successful, Miss
Kate was subjected to a third search, and the
remaining notes wece found by officer Pulliu
in a most extraordinary portion of her person,
from whence they were taken. Justice Bos
well committed Lacey and the girl to jail, and
dismissed the others
?.Thb Washington Asylum.?The commis
sioners of this institution, Dr. Newman and
Messrs. McDeviti. and Slater, yesterday after
noon officially made an inspection of it. The
poorbouse and workhouse were found in ex
cellent condition. The small-pox hospital has
no inmates.
There are now 72 convicts in the workhouse
department and over 200 paupers in the poor
department, a greater number than ever before
at tbis reason.
But one death too'k place last week.
With commendable foresight, the commis
sioners purchased and stored their entire win
ter stock of fuel for the institution, thereby sa
ving a large amount of money.
Credit is due to Mr. Josiah Adams, the in
tendant; Mrs Adams, the mitron: Dr. S. A. H.
McKim, the physician, and Mr. Tyrrell, the
gardener.
In accordance with the resolutions of onr
Councils to repair and paint the guttering and
roof of the Asylum, Mr. J. F. Hodgson took
the measurement for the work: and it cannot
be done too soon.
An Excellent Idba.?The Boston Adver
tiser announces that tin labels have been fas
tened to some of the principal trees on the Com
mon in that city, indicating the popular and
the scientific names thereof. It adds: ??We
are not aware to whose good sense we are in
debted for the idea, which is a goqd one, and
will tend, let us hope, to indnce more minute
attention to some of the most magnificent
trees that grow. We venture toassert that not
one in ten of our citizens can tell the difference
between an Englieh and an American elm, or
between a white and a black ash, or even be
tween the tulip tree and the linden. They now
have an opportunity to study arboriculture to
some slight extent, as they promenande in this
charming locality."
This idaa could be adopted with much pro
priety in the public grounds of Washington,
especially the Smithsonian grounds. Will not
Prof. Henry give the suggestion consideration!

meeting proposed to be held by the Democracy
of this city, on the 17th of September next, met
last evening at the rooms of the National
Democratic Association, but effected nothing?
the committee concluding that it would be un
wise to agree npon anything definite until after
the meeting of the Chicago Convention. A

were submitted, but not aereed to for tie
Teason above a-sigued?their applicability

Rev. Mr. Swope, of Martinsburg, Va. Rev.
Mr. Thrush has been called home by the sick
ness of some of his members at McKendree.
The camp will break np on Friday.

lar Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Florence will be the

Florences will be followed throughout the

before the public.
iNgrBST.?Yesterday, Coroner Woodward
held an inquest in view of the body of a new
born mulatto infant, which was found in a
gutter on L, between 21st and 22d streets west.
The jury decided that the infant cajte to its
