Removal of the Mines?Prelimi? nary arrangements for the removal ol the submarine mines iu tbe Potomac river were be^un on Saturday, and in a few days the actual work of takine. them up will be commenced. In the meantime it is necessary to prepare boats for the work, to select a place to which the mines can be removed and stored, and numerous other details. The work of removing the mines is in charge of the Engineer Department of the War Department. Col. Allen, in charge of that branch here, says that the mine? in the Potomac will be taken up early this week, perhaps Tues? day. It was decided by the War De? partment to take up and preserve them, as they may be needed again in the near future. In tbe meantime vessels are permitted to pass through the mined districts at all hours without re? strictions, so long as they can find the buoyed chaunel. Any deviation from the narrow path indicated by the buoys however, is likely- to send them to de? struction, and they take the chances at their own risk. Miss robinson.?Tee Baltimore American of yesterday says: "The por? trait on the society page tc-day is that of Miss Josephine V. Robinson. Miss Robinson has been selected as a maid of honor, representing tbe E;ghth dis? trict of Virginia, in the next annual con? vention this week of the Confederate Society at Atlanta, Ga. Miss Robinson lives in Alexandria, Va, being the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John P. Rob? inson. Her beauty of face and form are only exceeded by a sweet disposi? tion and a winsome nature, tbat causes even those not of an opinion tbnt she is the prettiest girl in town to call her a lovely girl, intellectual and well-equip? ped in every way to fu'lill all those things of a social nature that may be exacted of her at Atlanta aud lie before her in after life." Miss Robinson is now on her way to Atlanta where her beauty, grace and wit will doubtless win her new laurels. Yesterday was another hot Sun lay. and many people kept within doors in consequence. The mercury in the thermometer forged its way beyond the ninety mark and the excessive hu? midity rendered man and beast uncom? fortable. There was more than an average of strangers in the city not? withstanding, and numbers of soldiers speut most of the day here. The churches had slim congregations, es? pecially at tbe night services. Between nine aud ten o'clock at night the heavens became sg'ow with lightning and the rumbling t hunder gave promise of a welcome shower. There was, however, oulv a slieht sprinkle?not enough to lay'the dust?and after the subsidence of a refreshing breeze the ^titling atmosphere resumed its sway aud the uight throughout was sultry.

Kellev, who has been the driver of the Washington Blowing Company's delivery wngon iu this city for many months, has accepted a simi ! ? position with the Consumer's Brew? ing Company of Roselvo.

Assaulted by Strangers.?Herbert and Arthur Pudlips, two ycuug white men living on south Fairfax street, were beset and badly beaten by three s'rangers about 5 o'clock Saturday af? ternoon. The assailed parties were ly inc under a tree*, near the intersection of Franklin and Royal streets, where they were approached by the three men, and, they claim, without provoca? tion, were unmercifully assaulted. One . of the Phillips boys ri csived a severe i wound near the left eye, and bis broth? er was badly beaten ou his head. The police were notified but wh.-n they reached the scene the strangers had vanished. They are supposed to be Washingtonians, and it i3 presumed they boarded a north bound train at Washington or Payne streets. Tre fit;bt occasioned considerable excite? ment on south Royal street and a larce crowd gathered. A younc man named Charles Quayle followed the assailants some distance with the hope of meeting an officer and having the straDgers ar- J rested, but be having but one leg could ' not keep up with them and they soon ran beyond his ranee of vision. i'olicr doubt.?Mayor G.

THE SPANI8H PRISONERS. Admiral Cervera, the recent com? mander of the Spanish eqnadron which was destroyed off Santiago, and about 40 Spanish officers were taken to An? napolis1, Md., Saturday, and now are prisoners of war within the precincts of the United States naval academy. The officers were put on parole and have the liberty of the grounds and city. Admiral Cervera and eight or ten of his officers attended mass yes? terday at St. Mary's Catholic Church. In the brief sermon that followed the mass the preacher made only a slight reference to the "strangers within our gates," asking for them the comforts of reliuion and thp prayers of his parish? ioners. At this all the visitors bowed their beads reverently. Capt. Eulate, of the Vizcaya, is the only one of the officers who has thus far refused to sign the parole pledge. His reason for it is that Admiral Cervera was only required to give a verbal promise and that his (Eulate'?) rank entitles him to the same privilege. The au? thorities have no doubt that the matter will be amicably arranged and that the scruples of the gallant officer may be overcome. Annapolis, Md., July 15?The Spanish prisoners confined at the Naval Academy were in the city to-day mak? ing purchases of clothing and other articles. Admiral Cervera was among those who visited the city and was ap? parently interested in what he saw. They are permitted to be auayfrrm the Naval Academy from S p. m., until sundowu. They are not allowed to leave the city limits. Boh Moore, of La Fayette, Ind., says that for constipation he has foond DeWitt 8 Little Ktrly Risors to be perfect. They never gripe.
