Wi . *PProPri*te banners, and under tee maishalship c f their teachers, severally rreoeeded to the Smithsonian Institution; the ecture room of which building had generous ly boon granted for the oonvocation of the happy juveniles. But, unfo tunately, snJ evidently to the disappointment of the last arrivals, all of them could not enter the ball; it baring been previously crowded by upward of twenty five hmn ?/Jimor? f(jrtuna,? predecessors? >he fl.or, the gallery, and even theside room?; so, more than a thousand litUe ones were un avoidaUy excluded from a participation in the in enor in* creating exercises, and had to amuse themselves, as best they could, on the beautiful grounds ' 'lhe ball presented a rich, bright and lovelv spectacle. Iha denso crowd of girls and boys; tuo former nearly all dreaped in white?the emh'ern of runty-and adorned with flowera and ribands of various colors; and the boys neatly apparelled in white pantaloons and b.aak j ?okets, for the greater part, and all. apparently, bearing in their hands bcqneta of Floras choicest beauties; together wlh the youthful throng, contributed a scene doubtless &s delightful to the juveniles as to the adult witnes es of the iuipo?ing asseinbltga. The president of the day was Thomas U. al .er, Esq ; and on the platform were the mimstersof the churches to wh oh the schools !h.*l!Sn aCJ attachcd. together with the officers of the Sunday School Union.

Another hymn and prayer, and the doxel opy, concluded the servioes, when the assem blage withdrew, the children returning, in aJu-irabie order, to their various school h'jusfca. where they were regularly dismissed. Altogether, there waa never before, per haps, au?h a fine Sabbath school celebration in this city. It reflects the highest credit on a?i the persons therein concerned, while it speaks well in behalf the good morala of the metropolu of the republic. The Ball.?The regimental ball last night was the mcs: magnificent one we ever attended in V\ asbirgton. the scene being more gorgeous and exciting than one can imagine who was not present The open act of the eveninjr presented a tableau that struck all with sur pri3e and admiration As the ourtaia slowly rose, three tents were seen in the ba:k ground surrounded with volunteers in brilliant uni forms laving around them with arms in their hands, the great tent of General Washington forming the centre of the pioture The pro cess! n was then immediately formed, and beadeJ by the whole staff of the regiment with the venerable George Washington Park Custia, suf ported on either aide by Col. Uickey and Lieut Col Riley, marched around the hall; the ataff ateppitg for a time in the Wash ington tent as though holding a eouncil vf war. Hundreds of our young and gallant volunteers each with a beautiful gi,l 0n his arm, joined in thia proceasion, the ladies ad iing even more than the flashing uniformi in making up the sum total of tho brilliancy ct the scene Shortly afterwards the loung ing volunteers aro.e. ttruck the tents, and laid aside their arms, and the dancing commenced ani was kept np until daylight. Weber's and Pros peri's bands formed the huge and accomplished orchestra. The hall and boiea were crowded, fioujands being present, and every body was delighted There wero per haps five hundred present in uniform, and as mauy gentlemen in oiritens dress, while quite a thousand of the fair rex of Wushinj'ton graccd tbii delightful occasion Psof. Man ner assisted by our enterprising fellon-citiien, Mr. John T. Lvans, of iho Moun'td (Juardsj managed affairs on the floor, where every thing went . ft meat happily. We have no space in which to mention tho name* of tha diatioguisked ladib.1* and gentlemen who were present, who formed a legicn in themselves. May we aoon have such another ball in Wash ington to be thus chronicled. Thb Exccrsiow a?D Pic IIic of the Alter lcua Club, which took plaoe yesterdty after noon, waa one of the beat arranged and best conduc ed paitiea ever gotten up, in which the club tally sust<t'ned their well-earned reputa tion. 1 he j ?yi'ul party, composed of nearly two hundred of the beiles and beaua cf the city left Washington about half-past two o'clock, in the steamer George Washington, and soon, to ths exoellent music of Scott'a cotillon band " tripped it on the light fantastic toe," which was kept op until their arrival at the White llooee. lhe saloon of the Pavilion was tben filled by thoae who partioipatcd in the dancing, while others roamed around the ahoro to wit neea the fhhermen in their labor of capturing the finny tribe; and thus the afternoon wa* pleasantly passed until the annoanoement of ?upper, which, I y the way, was famished in Columbua's beat style. After thia the dancing, in which the participants appeared fully to enjoy themselves, wai renewed and continued until the hour of departure.

It now happens, however, that the quantity required to be used in tbe construction of the various buildings now in progress in Washington is so great as t9 make the application of all the water to be tbua commanded necessary to that end. Bo the Commissioner of tbe Publie Buildings has applied to the Secretary of the Interior for permission to shut off all the braneb pipes of individuals, hotel keepers, and others, and has been authorized to do so. after girirg those interested sufficient notice to enable them to make arrangement! for obtaining a supply elsewhere. ?? Moonlight Exccbsios?To morrow after noon, the Boone Rifle oorps, accompanied bj such of our oitisens ?? are fond of each enter tainmenti and who intend availing them selves of this oocasion, will leave this oity, on board the steamer George Washington, for a grand military and civic moonlight ezoursien, proceeding as far down tbe ritar as the White House. The advertisement in another oolumn furnishes the particulars. The oommlttee have made the most extensive arrangements to ren der this excursion one of the meat pleasant of the season, and we doubt not they will fully redeem their pledge.
