The Clifton .Camp Meeting. ?Captain
Eldridge, the U. S. Internal officer, whose au
thority Was resisted and dtlicd at the Northern
Methodists camp meeting, at Clifton, on Wed
nesday, says that she ciuip ground looked, to
him, more like an illicit distillery than a cunip
meeting, and less like a religious assemblage
than any place he ever eaw. To the contrary,
a letter from the camp meeting, in the Wash
iugton Republican, signed K , says : "The
camp meeting continues with increasing inter
est,and bids fair to prove the most successful ef
fort of the church held in this vicinity for years.
The leading spirits ot the camp are zealous,
godly men, fully alive to the great work they
have undertaken, and they are laboring hard
for the salvation of anils. Already, as the fruit
of their good work, seventeen penitents arc
asking prayers and seeking God, and several
conversions are annouoced. Services are held
at all hours of the day, and holiness is a
prominent theme in all the preaching. Chil
dreDs' meetings are held at 2:30 p. m., and are
conducted by prominent Suuuay school workers,
who take delight in instructing the little ones
iu the rudiments of Christian faith, and they
have always orderly and attentive listeners.
Experience meetings and ladies' prayer meet
ings are also of daily occurrence, and from both
of ihem there are marked resulis The atten
dance thus far has been excellent, and the ut
most harmony among the managers, tenters and
visitors is apparent. In fact, there has not
been the slightest incident of an unpleasant
character aince camp opened."
St. Asaph Street Railroad Track.?It
is understood that the enduing of the City
Council to be held to night hus been called for
the purpose of receiving the report of the Com
mittee un Streets, to whom wa9 referred a no
tification that the Alexandria and Washington
Railroad Company proposed changing the po
sition of their track on St. Asaph street, be
tween K'Og and Cameron, and that the com
mittee will merely report the opinion of the
acting Corporation Attorney, to whom the sub
ject was submitted, aDd which, as heretofore
stated in the Gazette, decides that the railroad
company has the right to make the proposed
change. Should the change be made it is the
intention of tho company, who have extended
their lease of the property now occupied by
them as their depot, to improve that property
and c reot a handsome shed there, ho that pas
sengers will have a covercd way extending
from the building to the train, and can step
from the sidewalk to the platforms of the cars.
It is stated, however, that even should the
City Council give its consent to the alteration,
some of the property-owners on the street will
apply immediately for an injunction to prevent
the execution of the necessary work.

ing commercial operations here. His plan is

Excitement on a Railroad Tratn. ? Yes
terday afteruoon, while the three o'clock loca]
train was on its way to this city from Washing
ton, a colored man, whose misbehavior had at
tracted the attention of the train hands, struck
a child ot Mr. Ed. Norris who, with iis parents,
was also a passenirer. Hardly, however, had
the blow been iLflicted, ere Mr. Morris, who
was silting near by, sprang from his seat aud
struck the ruffian such a blow on the face as to
break his nose, send blood in every direction,
aud sprawl hiui upon the floor of the car. 01'
course the greatest excitement at once prevailed
amoou the ladies, lor the affair took place in
the car, and the train being stopped several < f
them got off and some ran into thestuokiig
car, but as there were no further hosti'i: ie?,
they were induced to refUme their seats aud

Mr. J. Blodget Brittou, the projector of the
Mineral Bureau to be established here, aud
who, for a time, will give it his personal super
vision, has appointed a young gentK iUHi:,wl,ose
collegiate and scientific studies w:ll qualify him
for the position,as superintendent of the speci
men room at a salary of $500 per am un, who
will, as soon as desired, euter upou the duties
of his office. Mr. Britton in a note says:?
"In making the selection I thought it best to
have an entire stranger, young, m.'igetic. of
good edueatiou aud ability, whose personal
character could be well vouched for, and who
would uot himself uudertake to speculate or
join with any others iu speculation. In my
views I believe the railroad companies will fully
concur, and the sclectiou L have made, I think,
will give the fullest satisfaction."
Mistake Discovered too Late.?A
stranger entered the bar-room ot the Mansion
House yesterday, the pcrsouific t.ion of' distress
aud with tears streaming down his cheek.-.
When asked by the polite and gentlemanly
manager of the room the cause of his woe, he
replied that his life had been a series of mis
takes, but that he had ju.->t discovered the
greatest one he had ever made. (Jontinuiug,
he said he had beeu eugaeed to be married to
a beautiful and accomplished young lady, but
that a month ago, fearing he could uot sup
port her, on account of the high price ot liv
ing, he had broken off the engagement, and
that now, when too late, he had found out,
from pricing the watermelons, eantelopes and
peaches on his way from the wlftrf to the ho
tel, that he could have supported her very
handsomely.

look something like him.
