When the audience had gathered in the le3ture room, the band rang out its most jubilant strain*. as the Pres ident of the Institu'e all the officers, and the various committee* ascended the platform. Prof Henry then made a short address, after which the prize a *?r? awarded. A copy <f the addra'S ??' requsstcd by unanimous vote of the assembly, and will be published at an early day ; otherwise, we rhould as usual have given a report cf it in to day's issue In regard to the prizes, and the recipients of them, we must refer uur readers to the morning papers, as their reporters wore al lowed to copy the list befnre they were given out, but under promise 'hat they should rot be published until the close The rime privilege was accorded to us. but we deemed It useless to avail ourselves of it, as the more irg is.-ue wculd make the whole sufficiently p iblic The exhibition bail vras also crowded, and wLen the exercises in the upper hall were concluded, the scene presented a dense mass of human beings, moving round in a ceaseless promenade, while ?7ery prominent point and mil the recesses w?rs occupied with spectators 'I he pianos were ihtmpcd mott unmercifully, one yourg man especially, with a very shiney hat, seeming to tako especially delight in ex tracting " Few Cays" and " Jordan am a hard load to travel," fr. in the various instruments on exhibition, lie has been indefatigable in his attendance, and ha. thundered ou< " Pew days" in every variety of style and move ment?largo, adagio, cndmte, nlI*gre>to, sllegro, pres'issira , aCvtuoso, dolorand brilliant? with the varying degrees of force f'om pianissimo to fortisaimc?'?

There was not much cf a display by the left hand, probably being ignorant of ounte;point but the right made up for a'l deficiencies Mow that the fair ii over, we hope the pianos and pianists may t>e allowed a breathing spell?at lenet for a "few days." There was singing by ladies, too, which may be summed up in one brief sentence?good, bad. and indifferent There can be no doubt, however, but the arrfy of female loveliness exceeded any public display in Washington for a long time. Everybody, too, seemed to be in the b*st humor, and smiles and jokes ware the only current coin in thai va.t assem blage homo mad wags circulated .? rum.r that Tenth street bridge had broken down, drowning seven men?very eeverily This caused no alarm, h wever being in'euded as a gentle hint lh.*t our city lather* would do well to have an eye to that soma Tenth street ?nidge, by puttirg d cent steps on either side ? >f it At a later hen- th.^n usual the fair broke up, and thus ended iho second exhibi tion of the Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute Improvements.?Tbi< city has lanj suffered for the want of suitable halls for lectures and concerts, Ac Lately several halls havo been erected, acd their owners havo found tbat they have m3da profitable investments Lut durit g the past winter every eligible hall has been occupied, and others would have been engaged could they have been had This has been noticed by < ur enterprising tnwnsinin, Mr Kich&rd Ilill, who La.- nca-Iy finished a buildirg on the Avenue next to the Star office which will contain the finest ha 1 in the city. The new ball occupies the entire secotd floor, is 50 by 80 leet. will bo lighted *ith gas, and an eye has been bad *.o its aiapt ition to music; i: having been construote 1 on the hints on ac cou?tic* given in the Smithsonian lecture room lb? fl>or is so constructed as to make it a fine ball room, while its fixtures for ssata will render it one of our most eomf ortable lec ture rooms. Tbe lower part of tbe buildirg is divided for two 5tore.r. These are fine loca tions for bu?inerS. anl if fitted up in a? fine a style as our right hard neighbors, Hill us A Hits, have fitted np taeir establishment, will do much toward making this sit.e of the Ave nue as fashior able as the other. The dim?n siots of these stores are 23 by >0 feet. Tbe ba?.k part cf Mr. Hill's nt* but'ding wo have leased as a press room, as there is not sufficient room for our fre operitioru in the Star btilding* jproi'cr.
