kvkntnq st"a r. 1 Local Intelligence. The Firbmkr's Parade Ybstrrdat ? Washington may well be proud of her firemen as thej displayed themselves yesterday A finer body of young men never turned ont on a ?imilar occasion This 1* sajing much for them, as all the papers of the Northern cities portray the capabilities of their respective fire departments in glowing colors The oc casion was an honorable one: that of formally welcoming into the department tba new Western Hoae Company. We are an old fireman, and cannot hear a machine's bell tingle without "snorting," at it were. We hare seen the fire departments of every con siderable city in the Union on parade, from Portland to Galveston. Yet we have never Seen a more promising company than this Western Hose, of Washington City, on their first parade They are, for the most part, quite yoang men, healthy, manly, active, intel gent, and emphatically American in their ap pearance. Their uniform is neat and appro priate ; and they seem to enter upon their new duties with a desire to be of service to their fellow-chitons in time of danger and need, such as we have rarely seen displayed by men in their poeition. In the parade, the Teteran franklin seemed to be father of the flock ; that ompany being for the most part, composed of men of maturer years than their compeers Among the incidents yesterday, was the presentation to the Western Hose, by the Franklin Fire Company, of a superb wreath of flowers, arranged on a silk ground; Mr. Robert E Doyle, the President of the Frank lin, accempanying the gift with a brief bat appropriate speech, which was replied to, in felicitoas terms, on behalf of the Western Hese, by Mr. Higgles. The procession, after leaving the Northern Liberties engine house, where we left them in giving our account yesterday, proceeded, ac cording to the programme, to the railroad depot, where the Western Hose Company re ceived their hose carriage, a beautiful article, as well as of substantial construction, judging by its appearance Thence they marched to the Columbia engine honse, where Professor Dimitry, in the absence of the president of the company, Capt. J A. Tait, (who was cat soldiering) welcomed the firemen in an elo quent address They then partook of a sump tuous collation. Resuming the line of march, the procession parsed op Pennsylvania Avenue and visited Georgetown. In addition to the collation by the Colum bia Fire Company, the firemen were similarly entertained by the Northern Liberties the Union, the Western Ilcse Company, and the Vigilant Mr Philip Mackey received the Northern Liberties, at the St. Charles on his own account. We were pleaded with the fraternal feeling manifested by the different companies, one toward another. Cheers were given when passing the respective engine houses, and the belli were rang in token of good fellowship, which, we fervently trust, may ever character ise the noble firemen We most not forget to mention that Mi's , Rosina Wheeler, on the night preceding the firemen s grand display, presented the Perse verance Engine C<>mT>3ny with an elegant wreath of flower* to adorn their apparatus lhe firemen were in motion until nearly sun down. Gratifying as were their proceedings, they were dcubtlsss fatigued by the day's pe; formacces The May Festival, last night, given by Professor Cocheu. at Carusi's Saloon, was, in deed, of an interesting and gratifying char* ac er. The rcom was handsomely adorned with flowers and evergreens, and the seats were so arranged that every one present had as fine an opportunity as cculd have been do sired for witnessing the performances, as laid ? down in the programme The yonrg lady j who bad been selected for the " Queen of; May" wm prevented froai a; peering and as { suming the re^al honor, owing to a family j affliction; but, a substitute was procured within a short uotice, in the person of a ladj frr.m the country. J he ceremonies were of the usual description on socb occasions, and afforded much delight, especially to the juve niles. who were there in large numbers, ac companied by their adul? relatives and friends. A more ehe?rful, beautiful spectacle has sel dom been witnessed within those time-hon ored walls. The coronation being concluded, varioasfan. cy dances were performed by Mone Cochcu's pupils, including the Nymph's uarland Dance, by six Misses, and a Grand Fancy Masourka, by sixteen Misees ; a regular set of cotillons were danced by the scholars when the entire floor was thrown open to the eompany present. It ia almost needless to say that many ladies and gentlemen participated in the innocent and healthful amusement, to the fine music of the band in attendance. Our limits. to.day. will not permit us to ex. tend the account of this grand May festival ; but. in brief, it was a general remark that the dancing of Mens Cocheus pupils was not only creditable to them, but to their teacher, and speaks well for his capacity to instruct in that popular art. Everybody seemed to be satis fied delighted with the festival?looker** on as well as participants in the dance Nothing whatever occurred to mar the festivities Tea Light Isfajtrt Escaxpxest ?We mentioned, yesterday, that this old and popu lar corps had encamped cn the Washington Monument grounds. Yesterday afternoon, at four o clock, the National Gaard marched to the tented scene, and were received in the regular military style by the Infantry; Capt. J auiei Y. Davis directing the conferring of the honors. The two corps were then dismissed, when the guests were handsomely entertained by the Infantry. The festivities were inter rupted by the sounding of the bagle of the President's Mounted Jaards. Capt Peck; when the other two companies formed in a line and received the Mounted Gaard; and the usaai oourtesies were interchanged The National Guard then filed off and marched into the city, and the Mounted Guard remained. The latter and the Infantry, among other amuse ments. indulged in dancing on the greeu, to the masic of the drum and fife A large number of pers ons were present to witness the proceediogs. The President's Mounted Guard escorted the Washington Light Infantry to their armo ry, when the two companies were severally dismissed, much gratified with the May day proceedings Mr Ehbeh's Orgaxh?The chapel orgAn, which wis exhibited at the last iair of tt^ Metropolitan Mechanics Institute, in thiscit^ has been sold to the convent of Mount de Sales, near Catonsville, Maryland; the price $500. It will be recollected that Mr Erbec, the man ufacturer, received at that fair a silver medal, a high compliment justly deserved by him; for his instrnmen's have a wide reputation for their unrivalled ex:el!ence The organ made u.?eof in the Trinity church, cf thiscity is from hi? extensive establishment It wa* purchase 1 it, ls33. and played upon in xv ??fcington for the first time at a sacred con cert Tae instrument has just been overhauled and repaired by a gentleman connected with Mr Erben's establishment, and is now in first rata order an l as good as new.

The prop erty advertised for it in the Star oomprises a collection of Wanhington lots, such aj was never befoie offered at aootion in this oity. Loca tions, it will be peroeived by the catalogue, are to be found in all parts of tbe city, and the property is offered by bona fide holders, with the determination t* sell at whatever price it will bring. Id no oity in the Union is property increasing in valne upon a more solid basis than in this city, and no better ic? vestment can be made anywhere in real es tate than here, daring the " present tight times" for money. ?

Mr Davis is an old craftsman, thoroughly con versant with his business, and has laid in a stock of goods in hia line, such as never was ?urpacsed in Washington, fie has employed workmen, too, inferior to none in the District of Columbia. We advise all whose walls want renovating to give him a call Amti-Kkow Nothings ?A meeting of the Union Association, composed of both Whigs and Democrats opposed to the Know Nothings, held a meeting last night, at Harmony llall.

It is truly entitled to the patronage of the public. The Marine Band will play at tbe Capitol ground this afternoon, commencing an hour before sun-set. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE Georgetown, May 2, 1855. Many of our people especially the juveniles seemed disposed yesterday to enter heartily into tbe celebration of the advent of mother of ro3es, May. At the Ladies Academy, at the Convent cf the Visita'ion, the festivities throughout the day were of the most pleasing character. The firemen's procession was quite large, and all the external paraphernalia, ap paratus, aiu'crm, musie, &z., was really beau tiful We are pleased to learn that tbe canal packet, Congress, is being liberally patronized On the 7th inst . she will be drawn off tbe route for a few days, to convcy to Cumberland tho officers and directors of the Canal Com pany, and State's agents (of Maryland) on their t*'Ur of in?pection. We learn from one of the directors ct the company, th*t an invi tation was extended to tho Governor and Comptroller of Maryland to accompany them, but declined in consequcnco of a preso cf State business Forrest Hall was w*li filled last evening to hear the lecture of ibe Indian chief, Maung wu daus. and see the exhibition by him and his company. Business upon our canal looks rather dull this morning. This is owing to the fact that most persons rending along the line, and many engaged upon it, are engaged in their farming operations We have been requested to say that the Rev. Mr Cummins, of your oity. will preach a Fermon to the young men, of our city, in St John's Church, on Thursday evening next, at 8 o'clock. From every direction we continue to receive the most cheering accounts of tbe growing wheat crops. If nothing unforeseen should befall it, tho yield, from all we can gather, premises to be one cf the largest ever known in this section of country. We also learn that the young frail never loeked more healthy or uromised a more abundaut yield No change in flour or grain market. Fish are <iuite pl^n'y ?t our wharves tbis morning.

Last night the Democracy assembled en mosse at the Lyceum llall, S Buckingban. President ef the association, presiding. Mr Skinner, of Augusta, entertained the large auditory for one hour and a half with a bril liant and effective address, citing Clay against Flturnoy, and demanding of the Whigs which was the best authority. Col. fiunton, of Prince William, next spoke most eloquently, and after some remarks from a gentleman of the valley, G. W. Brent, eeq , of Alexandria, made a brilliant appeal to the Democratic partv. The meeting ckaed with three checrs for the Democratic standard bearers. Tbe American party also held a public meeting, which was attended by large cum bers Mr Mitchell and F. S.
