"IhSTmiCT Al'WRV?MILITARY1 DtHPLAT^ At the late session of CongTeu, it will be ree ?IHeted. the ram of thirty thousand dollars was appropriated to enable the Secretary of War to oaase to be eons true red on suoh ri'a, r in a central position on the public grounds, in the city of Washington, m may be w'ected bv the President of the Unite4 States. aatiit. able building for the oare iad preservation of the OTdnance, arms, and accoutrements of the United States, required for the use of the vol anteers and militia of the District of Columbia, and for thi care and pre?jrvaiion of the mili tary trophies ef tho revolutionary and other wan. and for the deposite of newly-invented and model arms, for the military service, the "*'.d ordnance and arms, and the building, to be used by the volunteers and militia of the District of Columbia, under such regulations M may be prescribed by the President of the United State*. To day was set apart for the parade and re view of the regiment of the District of Coluin bia, and for the breaking of ground for the proposed new edifice, which for many years has been a> much needed in this Metropolis as is well known not oaly to our own private1 citisens but to public men who have given the subject the lea*t consideration. Ihe weather was delightful, dear, and just auch as would have been selected for the oo j casion, probably, could the participants in the ceremonies have made their own eelecti">n The various military companies, exoept the Washington Light Inf-ntry. under the c? m. mind of Col. Hickey?accompanied by his staff oBrers, Lieut Col. Riley, Major Key worth, Major Bacon, (acting as aljutanb,) Quartermaster MeCulIom. aod Sergeant Mor gan?formed at the City Hall at half past 11 o'clock ; thence formed in line, and marched down Indiana avenue to Third street, and to Pennsylvania avenue, proceeding to the Presi dent's House, where they pas-ed in review before the President of the United States. The arms of the military glittered in the bright sunlizht; the various flags were borne aloft in a group, and the differently colored and ornamental uniforms afforded a striking contract, one to another, rendering the rcene indeed, beautiful. The Marine Band per formed, meanwhile, an air appropriate to the oeeasion, ueder the direction of Professor Scala, and led by the drum-major, Mr. McGreavy. Immense crowds witnessed the review, and many were the praises bestowed by the populace, not only on the imposing ap pearance of the regiment, but their fine and orderly military movements. We felt proud that we had eo effective a militia force in our metropolis, that description of troops on w*? ich we must mainly depend for our protection in times of actual war The review being completed, the legion left the President's grounds, on its way to the site for the proposed District armory, the southern or B street side of that portion of the Mall between Sixth and Seventh streets; and as it passed our offi:e, the Marine Band was play ing a medley in fine style, which we afterward learned waa called the " Evening Star Quick step.'* Qrounl was rubeequently broken for the armory, but the President of the United States wjb not present, owing, it is said, to business engagements which he could n.t neglect. Thb German Brotbers. of this city, a be nevolent association, paraded our streets to day in company with Gcothe Ledge, of Balti more, who arrived by the morning train of cars, bringing with th-m Volandt'a braes band, (of eighteen instruments.) and led by Aug Volandt himself No especial ; raise of the music need be expressed by the writer cf this paragraph, ; s the band '? bit w its owu trumpet" to the delight of all acditors The larger part of the Brothers wore red collars, while others including the officers were attired in regain similar to that of the Patriarchs in Odd Fellowship Sevoral beau tiful banners were displayed in thepro~ea--ioo; and altogether, it waa quite a handsome par ade and creditable to tne fraternity, united for purpoeee of human benefaction. We learn that the Brothers of this city will dine their vLitera. and, generally, extend to th?m suoh a welcome and hospitality aa wi!l ever bo remembered among the incidents of firm and undeviating friendship. Grand Entertainment is Prospect ?We lenrn thai Mr. Henry C Jar.ett, the efficient and enterprising manager of the Baltimore Museum, has engaged the National Theatre, in this city, for next Monday evening, June 4, and intends presenting to the citizens of Wash ington, Alexandria, and Georgetown, the g-and speotacle of ''Aladdin, or the Wonder ful Lamp." To d j this he will necessarily be at a Deary expecse. as he will hive to convey hither at least six y performers. The piece has been flayed sixty two consec utive nights in Baltimore. As the company will remain but one night in Washington, a crowded house may be anticipated, aotwith standing there will then be prevailing no doubt, much municipal election excitement. The piece will be performed in the same atjle as produced in Baltimore, with the grand march of the female warriors?the processions, combats, tableaux and machinery beicg cf the mo?t beautiful description Thb German Tcrnbrs ?Washington was in pleasant excitement to day, and not a few of our citizens devoted the time to holiday, &irtb, and display In addition to the pro cessions of the military and the German Brothers, and thalr subsequent exercises, the Turners, one hundred and twenty strong, ac ccmpanied by about twenty visitors from Bal timore, paraded cur streets, with banners and Fischer's band of music Their uniform is plain but nea:?Thita pantaloons and sicks, with flexible hats. They marched for an hour or more and then proceeded to Carroll's Gar den. near the navy yard, on the road lead ing to the Congree>i >na; Cemetery This af ternoon they are to have a pic nie at that pop ular (with the Germicz. place of summer re tort, and a concert and performances in g; m nasties?Mr Braun being the leader of the last-named exerobes The entire oompany is unler the presidency of Mr Gerheart. They will, no doubt, have a pleasant time, pa they, of all people, know hew to enjoy themselvea socially ? Mat Festival ?On Saturday last, we pub liahed a brief, and. as we auppoaed, compli mentary account of the May festival, at Tem perance Hall, on Priday night, by the pupils of Primary School. No. 1, District No 2. under the charge cf Miss Elisabeth Persona; but, it seems, that our notiee has not been received by some of the friends of that lady and of the school, in a spirit corresponding to that in which it was written namely, tbatof kindneea; for which we are sorry. But the erior is net our own We presume that we have too much gallantry to " attack the teacher," as a correspondent chargea. and know as well as he does the measure of respect that ahould always be aeeorded to the fair, and eapaoiaily to the eatimable lady in question. Femalb Kiotbhs ?Yesterday morning as many persons were going to church, two wo men, Bridget Curt.a an-t Mrs. McMaban got into a fight on 10th ne.tr E street, and at tracted much attenti n by the man er in which thej u-ed their tonguea, fipgera and nails.

Faib in Georgetown ?In the notice of the Fair to be held at Forrest Hall, commencing the 28th instant, (to day.) it was not stated that Forrest Hall was in Georgetown. It was an oversight, but presume every reader of the Star must have known where the Hall is sit. nated Firks ?The alarm of firo Saturday night was caused by the burning of a house on the tow path of the oanal above Georgerown.
