So also, has Mrs. Pieree, at No. 494 Eleventh street, between Pennsyl vania avenne aad E street, whose spring mil linery is such as to set the mouths of half the ?ex in Washington to watering. Nor should we forget the new assortment which is to be found in the so fashionable establishment of Mrs. L Davidson, at No. 303 Pa. avenue, be tween Ninth and Tenth streets, where one will Me any quantity and styies of loves of fancy hats, French flowers, ribbon and strew b jc ncts. Ac., Mrs J.

Pictceks ?Mr. Editor: Having observed the announcement in ycur widely spread jiarnal of the arrival from England of original water color pictures 1 was induced to pay a visit to the store ot M?s*r* Tayl. r and Maury. During a tour in Fnrope 1 was a frequent vis iter to the va-iocs picture gallorics, and mora especially at the (zhibitiou of the societies of painters of water colors in London, who have attained great perfection in this art. it was therefore refreshing to look on the pictures recently received in cur ci'y. afcar so long an absence from those galleries, where I have lin gered in silent admiration cf the effects pro duced by the modern school of painters But to see it was a matter cf suprii-e to find that out of ihe eiiht pictures at Messrs. Taylor A Maury's, only one should have been sold. I belie?e, however, that it is the want of means lather *han the dc!ire to purchase. I would inggest that in order to affjrd an opportunity to seme of car citizces to bccome pesse sor?, that they be put up at raffia Sueh means are often rasor'ed to, and are not conti.iered pro judicial to the artist's reputation. 1 know of several who accord me in the proposi tion.

C ondition of Capt. Dorry and Jjaryue Wm. Chase?Appointment on Caval?Inspec tions of Flour?Markets, \t. ? Geokoetowx, April 7,1855. We regret to learn :hat the family and friends cf Capt. Dorry, of the barque Win Chase, are quite uneasy about his condition. When the vessel struck on Hog Island, tears were euter tertained that sho would go to pieces, and the clothing, Ac , of the crew, together with the provisions were landed on the Island, and while the crew were eDga^ed assisting in get tirS her off, the Captain who had been con fined to the cabin sick for ssv^al days before tho accident went on shoro to take care of them. After the vessel wa3 got off. it was found im practicable to return fer him, consequently he was left on the Island, sick and enfeebled, where he had no kind of shelter from Saturday until Sunday afternoon, the time of the mail ing of the last dispatch from Norfolk. Wt also learn that parties in Norfolk, who had entered into a written contract to get the baik off tor fcS.GCO, after they had reached the Island, attempted to take the advantage of the captain's situation, and refused to render any assistance until he signed a second contract agreeing to give them some $4 000 and 20 fer cent, on the cargo. We presume, how ever, that the last contract wiil be of no effect that the parties will have to abide by the terms of the first. Since our last notice of the accident, we have learnod that some thirty to firry hogsheads (sugar and molasses) of the cargo had to be thrown overboard. The last hea-ing from the bark she was in Norfolk. eloarn from Mr. Lamby, the superintend cnt. that there are about one hundred and forty bands now employed on the Washington aque duct, and that everything is moving on finely. Harris Baa ton has been appointed si<reri?. tondent on the lower ?eotion of the Chesape ike and Ohio canal, in the p!ace of Mr. Limbv resigned. Rev. John Lacaian has engaged a dwelling houso in our city, where be intends to reside d uring his presiding Eldership of the Potomac district. The inspections of flour in our city for tie quarter ending March 31, amounted to 54,501 barren; 1,104 half barrels; and 189 barrels corn mjal; total, 55.242 barrels. About 35,000 barrels of this was inspected in the month of march. The Rev. llenry glicer and his family have left for Baltimore. It must be very gratifying to the old gentleman's feelings to know that be carries with him the universal good wi-hes and kind regards of the people among whom he ha* resided for several years past. List n:g!it and the night before, we were lavored with refreshing showers of rain, which niust prove very beneficial to the surrounding farms and gardens.

Oar paper of yesterday contained, under the teie^Taphio bead, a dispatch New York* communicating ecretal important item*, which were brought by the steamer Baltic. 6he ar rived at that pgrt on Friday with one week's later adrioe* from Europe. We, this morning, received the details, but do not find them to acoord, in interest, with the glowing head-lines and heavy capitals whioh preface them in the newspapers repub lishing the intelligence. The following is in addition to what we pub lished yesterday: THE VIENNA CONFERENCE. The first of the four pointi which hss been unanimously agreed to by the Vienna Con ference, reads as follows: The abolition of the exclusive protectorate of Russia in Moldavia and Wallaohia, and the privileges accorded to those provisoes by the Sultan, thus being placed* under the guarantee of the Five Powers. A dispatch from Vienna dated Friday even ing says : The Conference is progressing most favorably, ihe second point was either set tled to day, or will tie to-morrow. The Emperor has given strong evidence of his design to abide by the plans of his father, and that be will make no concessions. Ru mors are current of a new basis of arrange ment, including the freedom of the Black Sea. opening of the Danube, and the erection of Turkish forts, As , in Asia. TURKEY. The Porte has determined to maintain un diminished its sovereignty over the Darda nelles and protests against any of the Chris tians in the empire being placed under any foreign protection.
