This is owing to the fact that each and every of the city's volunteer c m panies is exerting itself to outdo the others in the magnificence of its display on the occa ?Ion, and i a doing its share otherwise to reader t the most remarkable entertainment f the season We presume there wilt be full three thousand ladies and gentlemeo present, the twxee beiog even more crowded with delighted spectators than the floor with gay and happv 1aB?Tr?i P* ? now arranged, is decidedly the ball-room of Washington, bain* taken all in all, inferior for effect and diapl.f' to no other ball-room in America. -W?' 8eV8raI days ago, alluded to tha unlawful assemblages of boys in vancus parts of the city, and of their annoyances to our peaceful community, and sf^ke of the mudoiogs of certain lads in the neighborhood of Marsichusetts avenuo and Third street. On Saturday night, while a' posse of the Auxiliary Guard were out on duty in that vicinity, their attention was di rected to the riotous proceedings of the juv eniles, and so they made a desccnt on them capturing four (one half) of the guilty parties! and brought them to the watoh house; where they were required t-> give eecurity for their fature good behavior. When the parties were arrested, one of them had a bottle of spiritu ous liquor, with which be was exceedingly re luctant to part. We mention this to show u> parents and guardians the danger to which their children or wards are exposed by asso ciations euch as that to which we have just re ferred. ' We repeat, that good morals are not pro moted by suffering boys to run about at night The arrest of these lads should serve as a warning to all others, as we learn that the po lice are resolved to check such disturbances without respect to party. ' Cabibb .^kbbhadebs ?The citisens of the Second and Third Wards justly complain of Ings and howling, and arousing sleepers to listen to the long continued discord !

That at an early hour last night was caused by the burning of a stable in the public alley north of Pennsyl vaaia avenue, and between Four and a-half and Sixth streets The stable was owned by Mr J.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE GtoRssTOWB, May 2l, 1866. Another audden aad unexpected death oc. curred in oar eity yesterday morning or Satur day night. Mr. John Clarkson, an English man by birth, but for the last twenty odd yeara a citisen of this country, and for several yeara watchman at the Pioneer Cotten Fac tory, where he aerved with fidelity, waa found dead ia the factory at an early hour yeaterday morning. An inquest waa held over the body by ooroner Woodward, aad the following ver dict rendered : That the deceased being watoh man at the Pioneer Cotton Faotory in George town, did, on the 19th of May, 1865 go to the faotory, as waa hie uaual practice, at the cus tomary time, (8 o'clock;) that he left the fao tory and returned again abont 9 o'clock intox-1 ioated, and not coming home at his uaaal time, yesterday morning, bia wife went to tbe fac tory, where ahe found him lying on the floor dead, having fallen off the chair, and the jary believe from the evidence that hla death waa cauaed by apoplexy, auperinduoed by intem perance . Before coming to oar city in the employ of Mr Willaon, Mr Clarkson resided in Balti more, where, we learn, hie remaina will be taken to-day for interment. We learn that the ladiea of Chriat (Episco pal) cburoh have in contemplation the holding of a grand fair or festival early in the ensuing month The canal packet line to the Point of Rocks ii daily becoming mora popular.
