I Mat Militaby Pabadb.?The Wash mgton Light Infantry (that old, sterling, and popular company) this morning, in accord ance with previous arrangements, assembled I at their armory, and thence proceeded to the I Monument grounds, where they pitched their tents for the day. They were well snpplied I with military equipsge-tents. stools, Ao., in cloding cooking apparatus; in fact, every thing to serve their purposes, and render their temporary encampment comfortable. vy&puin John l. Davis, the recently-elected I commander of the infantry," made his first ap pearance in that capacity, and looked well as an officer ? The President's Mounted Guard have been ordered to meet at their armory at half-past - o clock .his a.ternoon, for the purpose of es- I oortitg the Infantry home, taking up the line of march at 3 o cloak. j The National Guard, Cart.

Tbb Mat Festival To Nigbt ?We scarce ly need call the attention of our District rea ders to the graBd May festival to take place to niifht?that of Profesaor Cocheu, at Caru si's saloon, which has been celebrated for siml lar delightful entertainments given there, at least since our boy days. The May festivals are realiy gay fairs; daneiog fairs, at which thousands of the children of the city are an nually displayed They are taken and go there, of alt ages, from the infant in the arms to adoles;nce, and thousands of parents and other grown triends attend, all, as are the children, deeked in gay attire. May flowers blasaall present with their fragrant and life inspiring influence, adding, in tha profusion with which they are provided by managers and guests, a halo of freshness and joyousness to the scene, which is indescribable on paper. They are children's balls and until midnight the floors are* mainly appropriated to them; the happy little things capering around as few others than unsophisticated children can. Af terwards their seniors take their places and keep up the merry danee and graceful waits until the small hours of the morning. Reader, if ycu have never seen a May festi val in Washington be sure to attend the festi val to night. The President, his Cabinet, all foreign Ministers in Washington, and all American publio functionaries military and naval officers included, who are in this city, are usually present there, adding greatly to the animeii^n and beauty of the scene lhe festival of to night promises to be even supe rior in its attractions to any of its predeces sors Sodtbbbb Kailboap Cobtbbtiob ?

An ImonN ooneourse of both HXH attended the aolemn and lm posing ceremonies at St. Patrick's Charob, yesterday morning, in commemoration of tbe dNMN ef ita lata esteemed and venerated ftutor. The eburoh was appropriately draped n the sable weeds of mourning. and the choir ohaunted the most ioIiiud and Impressive sa cred airs. Rev Mr. O'Toole officiated at the altar, assisted by Rev. Mr Donelan, of St. Matthews, and Rev. Mr. Lawrence, of St. Pe ter*, as deecen and sub?deacon. Reversnls Messrs Boyle, of St. Patriek'e, Blox. of St. Mary's, Alexandria, and Hoban, ot George* town College, were also within the sanctuary. A very beautiful, eloquent. and impressive en logj was pronouncea by Rev. Bernard Ma guire, President of Georgetown College. The reverend gentleman teleoted as his text a pas sage from the sesond epistle of Paul to Timo thy, oontained in the 4th chapter and 8 b verse: ?'I have fought the good fight; my course is run," Ac.

These were the prominent points upon whioh the reverend speaker dwelt with an eloqueaoe and a pathos which drew the silent tear from many an eye in the vast con gregation. At the clese of the mass, all tha clergy Joined in singing a re quiem. Tobacco Spittiho.?A correspondent has furnished us with a communication on this subjeot, complaining of the injury done to bis neat and handsomely furnished domicile by tobaooo spi Iters. As a remedy for the evil he proposes to establish a spitting school, with out. however, taking out a patent for tbe in vention. But we will let him tell his own story, in part, the articlo bcicg too long for publication entire. In speaking of a visitor he says: " Time and aga'n have I delicately shoved the spittoon toward him; but he evidently thinks it murh easier to hit the white mantle, bright stove, broad oarpet, or tall bureau. Once I provided a square yard of sine-sheet ing. putting the spittoon on its centor, and quietly asked him and his imitators to please use it. This they strove hard to do. (not aim ing at the otbor targets more than say once a minute each.) but with what success you will properly understand when I assure you that after their departure I measured their rhots wrh the tongs, and found that the 1 scatterieg' averaged two and a hall to three feet from the ' bull's eye,' while as to the number that en tirely missed tbe sine target, and by how tar, I could not determine, fur the stains thereof had so blended with those aimed at the man tle, stove and bureau, I could not say which of them had beou aimed at the spittoon. " I am now searching for an extra sized ' bathing mat,' which 1 propose filling vri.h sand, having spouts running out to the several chairs of Manlins A Co.; and until the<e ar. rangemen's are completed I must sorrowfully, ihough firmly, be 4 not at home' to those for whom I am preparing '-Meanwhile, and before the 'mat* be* cones flooded and my carpets, Ac., ruined, not to mention rummer odors, I come to my pro position, which is, that one of tbe b hoys who (like Alexander's pea showman) cau spit through the eye of a needle, at ten feet, for a wa?er, should set up a sohcol for the teaching of Manlius and others how to spit at a mark? beginning with a tan rat target and corning down in easy g-ades, through a series of waeii. tubs and kettles, to tbe common spittoon. By way of encouraging his pupils in tha d?light? ful task of learning how to shoot, be might offer premiumiof pound-twists of ? cavendish,' or for extraordinary merit pig tails of'Jenry Lic-d ' By doing all this he will much oblige me, for I shall thereby save not only ray fur niture. nut conserve the good order of my rooms, as well as nave my own little fl'i-ro of the 'weed/of which, in a delicate and ra tional way, I am moderately fond." Public Concerts?A Suggestion.?As the time for the performance of the Marine Band,' at the President's and the Capitol grounds, has nearly arrived, a correspondent suggests I that a new arrangement be made by the proper authorities?namely : instead of play* ing twice a week in the afternoon, once at eac'~. place, the band commence at the Capi* ! tul about 7 o'clock in tha evening, the music to be continued till half past 8 or 9 o'clock; and so at the President's grounds every Sat* urday evening only. Tho reasons for this suggestion Are elsu'ly these: Heretofore tbe concerts have takeu place at too early an hour for physical com* j fort, and at a time when mechanics, merchants, and others, are engaged in their business pur suit*, and therefore cannot attend. During the week there are excursions for which, he says, the Marine Band should always have the opportunity of entering into engagement* for that purpose. And Saturday evening is named, in order te afford persons who have no other time tbe privilege of participating in the pleasures of the free oonoert, and tha< promenade in the lovely publio grounds. They commence on Wednesday afternoon next at the Capitol. A Society for Reading aed Spearing Foreign Languages.?We notioe with pleas ure the formation of a society in this oity, whose aim and objeet is the cultivation of the mind by reading and refined intercourse. Standard works of the most eminent authors, and Journals from England, Franoe and Ger many, as well as the principal newspapers of the United States, have been provided for. The cfficees selected by the member** of the association are, we understand, A. Hofer. President; J. C. Kretschmar, Secretary; ana L. Siebert, Treasurer. Accident ?To-day, a small yellow boy was shockingly wi,undid in the eye, by an arrow, tbe bead tipped with tin; his oompanlon, a white lad, his jr , accidentally letting slip his bowstriDg They were playing together on Ju* diciary Square. The occurrence, as we learn from a gentleman who witnessed it, was ap parently accidental Tbe wounded boy was taken to the Washington Infirmary, where bis eye was examined, but the physician oannnt yet say whether he will lode his sight. It should prove a warning to those who play with bows and arrows. Cirr Politics ?The following is a list of those elected last night at the meeting of the anti-Kncw Nothings of the Seventh Ward, at Potomao Hall, as delegates to the approach ing anti-Know Nothing city oonventionfor the nomination of candidates for City Collectur, Register, and Surveyor, on the first Monday of next month?June: Simuel Pumphrey, Samuel Taylor, Alex.
