Wasmib?to!Tb Birthday ?This being the natal day of the ( til Patherof our Republic, our streets were early crowded by well-drensed end pleasant looking people to observe the pageantry of oar handsome military, who pa raded on thi? occasion. The morning opened bright end glorious, end reminded as more of ? balmj spring day than that of winter. The dsy wu ushered in by the firing of national sal ales at the Navy Yard, end whioh wu re pealed at mid day, and will be continued at 1 o'clock, the first company we of the George Washington Rifles, Cept. Chase, a new oorps, jast formed, who were proceeding on their march to the Presi J}"?1?11 10 P?7 their r??P??t3 to the Chief Magistrate. They numbered twenty three muskets, and are a fine-looking body of young man. The National Guards, Captain ?l. ' ' force, numbering no less than fifty men. They were aocompanied by F. A. Proeperi's new band, which discoursed most excellent music. At the hour of going to press we had not oome across any other ?orpa, but understood that the Montgomery Guards, as well as the Asaerican Kifles, were out en parade. Many other companies are celebrating the day in banquets, where fall honors will be done to the immortal Washing ion. The Scott Guards, by invitation, have gone to Georgetown College. Thus, it will be sees, there is no lack of patriotism on the part of our eitiaen soldiers to do reTerenoe to the father of our common country. Hahlet To-Nigbt?From present appear ances the National Theatre will be filled to night by an intelligent and fashionable audi tory to witness Mr. Murdoch's personation of Hamlet. We look upon this as his best char acter. I m partial critics say he has no superior in this part. With Mmrdcch in tragedy and Jefferson in comedy, we will have an enter tainment such as has seldom been presented to a Washington audienoe. Tib Faib last evening was crowded to its utmost capacity. The music printing estab lishment of Messrs. Uilbus A Hiti, the sewing machine of Mr. Jewelle, the organ accompa niment of Prof. Scheel to the glee singing by a number of male voices, and the piano play lng of Profs. J. C. Fotrtsch and B. F. Denni* attracting general attention. Many persons ?ttracted to a peculiarly made spur, the handiwork of Mr. H. Semken, and deposited Mr. John F. Clark. The advantage whioh this spur has over all others is its complete adap tation to any sised boot heel, its security against loss, and the entire avoidance of pain aad inconvenience attend*nt upon fastening the common spar. We refer to our advertise ing columns for a full description cf this valu able and important improvement. Th? Cotillon Partt ?A few nights sinoe. a number of our yeung friends had a cotillon party in a school house in the northern part of the city. No care was taken to have a door keeper, and the consequence waa, hats, caps, coats, 4c., were missed in the morning Most of the eoats have been returned to tbe owners, ba; who returned them is not known. Last night, a lad named Stoops, was arrested by officer Barnaclo, as one of tbe parties who took the goods, and taken to the guard house He will be tried this morning; but it is thought nothing will be done with him, as the entire act appeared to be more with a desire to tease the young men, than to rob them of their clothing. Sttbdt Bsgoars ?-We believe there is a law regulating commitments to the workhouse that reauires " persons found begging or urank in or about the streets, shall, on information before any police justioe of the peace, upon the oath or affirmation of a creditr ble eitiaen. be required to enter into security for their good behavior for tbe space of six calendar months, and to indemnify the Corporation against any charge for their support." We hive been requested several times lately to call the attention of the police to a number of sturdy beggars who are hanging about the markets and other public places, reaxing per sons for money who are no better able to work for it than themselves. The police can do nothing without information given to them under oath. foor Eacb.?Yesterday, an exciting race, from Seventh to Tenth street, took place be tween officers Coze, Kimball, Burr, Allen, Weeterfleld, and Reese, after a colored man named Wm. Prindle, who had knocked down a woman by striking her with a stone, hurting her badly. It was se exciting a race that bets were about being made, when Reese left the list and took to his horae; be soon arrested him on Louisana avenue, near Tenth street Prindle was taken before Justice Do an. who sent him to jail for oourt. Chinese Block. ? The managers of the Washington National Monument Society hav ing received a letter from New York, inform ing them that the ship Panama has arrived at that port, bringing a block ef granite from Shanghai, five feet in length, two and a half feet in breadth, and ten inches in thickness to be deposited in the Washington National Monument It bears an inscription in Chi nees characters, and is a contribution from the American missionaries in that far-off coun try. Now is thb Time !?The automaton singing bird, now at the ilusic depot of Messrs Ililbus A Hits, can be seen and heard by all desiring to po<pfss themselves of this truly magnifioent and wonderful work of art. Its value is set down at $1,600, and four superior geld, dia amond ornamented watches, are also to be plaoed in the raffle, making five prises and en!y two hundred chanees. The high standing in the oommumty of Messrs HUbus A Hitais aisufficient guarantee cf the fairness whioh will characterise the proceedings. ?J?"Wr A, P"1**? -Edward A.

Though this club' is its infancy, from toe go-ahead prosperity of "Yoong America," they promise their under taking shall not be wanting in anything to make every one enjoy themselves. Locejaw ? We regret to learn that Mr. McCatherran, who was hurt a short time since by an aocident in the Navy Yard, is lying in a very critical situation.

Article* at the Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute. It is our intention, under this heading, from I day to day, as space will permit, to give a description of the many useful, ingeneoua and excellent articles on exhibition. Throughout) the Fair this inventive genius of American art and skill may be seen, and a short deli-1 ncation thereof cannot fail to interest the ] reader. Millin?ry, tye ?London and Paris hashith-1 er to monopolised the merit in this department, but more especially in respeol to ladies' hats | and head dresses. But we question if either . of those great cities could surpass the rich and new style of bonnets and bead dresaes, whioh Mrs. M. L. Davidson, 303 Pennsylvania! avenue, has now on exhibition at the if air. Oar Washington ladies are supposed to bel some judges in this matter, and as an evidence of this, we are given to understand that the whole of the articles in the case have already been purchased by residents in this city. They | may truly be oalled home manufacture, hav ing entirely been made on Mrs. D.'s premises. Ladies atudying taste and economy will de-1 rive pleasure from making a call there. Messrs. Editors: Observing the notice in yesterday'a Star, of the speoimens of oard and I ornamental writing at the exhibition rooms of | the Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute bv Mr. Riehardson, I am reminded of the finely ar-1 tistic samples of penmanahip deposited there by Prof. J.

As an amateur oard writer, Prof. H. has few equaia, either in the variety of atylea er neat- j neas of execution. It is exceedingly gratify ing to his numerous friends, and all admirers I of genius resident among us, to see with what oredit his work eustains itself in that trulyj creditable exhibition. t riT14 The Mormon" is the name of a new paper started in New York.
