-EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Tnr Kxow-Nothing Procksmo* left the City JI :ill for Knl>rHin.i shortly after 9 a. in , >esterdav. there to celebrate the day. Three military companies led the van?the Marion J?nd American Rifles of Baltimore, and the American Kiilcs of this city; all of whom made * very soldierly appearance They were fol lowed by the Union and Perseverance Fire t 'mpanie- among whom were apparently mingled inenil>ers of other fire companies; a doxen carriages, carrying their orator and reader. c : uni; tee of arrangements, Ac.; and then came a body of Know-Nothing citiiens of Washington, Georgetown, Alexandria. Bla densburg, Ac . of all age*, from extreme youth up. numbering, a* they turned from Pennsyl vania avenue up 15th street, 710. The "Baby Waker" brought up the rear They left Washington in fine leather; but of course got as ' streaked'' as they returned, by the ram, as their fellow-citixene who remained here? I be feather* and bright habiliment* of the militaiy looking, on their returns like the gaudy pluriftge of rooster* after a hard sLower, which the case with the other procession. On the avenue, thoy paid the labors of the ?ditor of the Star in behalf of the trv? prin ciples of the constitution?civil ar?d religion? liberty and equality?the Veiy high compli ment of gr ?aning from nre eu 1 of their line of unadorned Know Nothings to the other, as they parsed l>;.m riding down in the opinieite direction.

Wise earned for him at their html.*, on the memor able evening before Browns* hotel. The groauers were lair specimens of :Le class of persons in this region who admit the soft iua peachmeut of Know Nothingism. We are well content that the ttnfcitiatc:!shall form un opinion of the sort of people among us wLo ''go the whole Know N-thing *? swine " from the appearance, and conduct in the pr> cession of the mass of its members; though here and there we recogrited the countenanee of persons whose 44 Americanism " has not yet bee ome so intense as to induce them openly to Ret at defiance the rule of common dccen-.y and self-respect by which everv person rcallr lit to be intrusted with the sacred privilege* of American citizenship, is expected to be gov erned under our system, which is founded on the idea that all under its influence are com petent for self-government. We noticed in this procession a very discon solate bald eagle, anon looking down at its claws, as though sadly disconsolate at being forced to remain identified (by thong;.) even for a brief period, with such a cause. As he paased us, he appeared anxious to get away, and exceedingly iu >rtified at being forcibly com pelled, by his guardian at that end. to add tho pretencc of hie slorious symbolism, to the bud get of false pretences of which Know Nothing ism is made up. _ The advertised proceedings took place at Kaiorama. where Know-Nothing political mo rality. respect for the rights of others and pe culiar patriotism. were also duly enforced in im promptu speeches from the Rev. F. S. Evans. E- C. Carrington, e.-q., Mr. Jno. G.Wilmot, of Baltimore, and perhaps others. It is to be regretted that some one failed to Tead the Constitution of the United States after tha reading of the Platform; as in such close juxtaposition, the reading of the latter would have been l'k.-ly to have opened the eyes of tl % misguided men among them really actuated by disinterested and patriotic sentiments, to comprehend that the- ^elfish. office-seeking, and Unprincipled persona who are leading them astray, have impend on them a political faith, antagonistic in every respect to the principles for which our revolutionary fathers fought, bled, and died. P. S. Our talented, amiable, and ingenuous neighbor has not yet informed the world what Platform it was that wis read on this occasion; whether the Abolition Platform of Massachu setts Kn'-w-Noihingi-m, the ultra pro-slavery Platform of Georgia Know-Nothingism. or the \ersic?n of our in isrhbor's conductor s two-horse act. put forth at Philadelphia.

(4th inrtant,) the fire works prepared at the Nary Yard and Arsenal Tor exhibition in the evening were somewhat damaged by the rain, but more by the mois ture of the atmosphere, (the extoi t of which cannot y.t be known,) and the preparations for firing them, already undertaken, were dis continued for a few days, when such as are found, or can be made fit. will be fired in Mon ument square, of which as good notico will be given as possible. Respectfully, Jonx Cleves SruvE*, Lieutenant of Ordnance in charge. Washington Arsenal, July 5, 1S55. Dids't see the Fireworks.?Last evening, a* early a- half-past seven o'clock, parties of m-n. women and ehildren-not few in num ber?wended their way to the vicinity of the mail, on the south side of the President s house, m order to secure commanding positions for seeing the fireworks, which, as it had been announced m the Star, were to be displayed on that occasion, in honor of the nation's at. niversary. The most extensive pyrotechnic arrangement; had been male for ttie purpose, u..d lie. Q3 th' public anxiety on that subject Icnc-ylvania avenue, and all the street* leading to toe Mte selected for the brilliant sj>ecta<.le. were, ior an hour or in?re, densely crowd*-1 with human beings, on their jovous way thither, and, among the thousands upon ? h-'usands oi the p mulace, were very many juveniles; some in the arms, ,-there in hand earn ag<>s. and not a few cloie to "mama's npron string.'' '? liurry on. my dear, you hcp the people crowding n there," remarked an 44 anxious mother to her tender offspring. 4'Oh, yes. I never see il'o hig rukets ar.d squabs; and arc they going to set em afire right off. mother ? "Yea, dear." - Oh, my ! " re spond-d fhr male juvenile, in a tono of sur pri-e. 1 he remainder of the conversation was last to us, as a gwntl^.nan, in white p~nf\ vitli a lady on each arm. and five or six of the fair sex in ? saaiu com pi ny, crowded leaving the atfeotiooute mother &bd the moussitive lad lur in the background. Everybody seemed to be in a hurry, a* if the fireworks were to occupy but five "minutes in the grand explosion. ? P\ rotcchnicj was the prominent theme, and the apptarakco of the frame-work (standing "ut in bold relief on the mail) to which the rirpective pices were to bo attached for rev* olm.onary, oblique, horizontal, and perpen dicular combustion, r.pparently heightened the anxiety which was so con.-picutusly manifested. A lively, elegant lime they all had, in antici pation ! As wo arproached the eastern gate opening to the President's grounds, we heard some one, who proved to be a regular of the company of Li/ht Artillery, say, -No fireworks to-night, ladies and gentlemen." "In consequence ol the inclemency of the weather," gruffly re sponded a burly old gentleman of low stature. . sncient aud venerabb lady leaning on his arm, recci\ed the sad intelligence with such a shock as caused her to exclaim : "Good Lord ! after our lor.g walk, ioo." Tho news ?<?on spread in the crowd of persons at that time lor ing au entrance int .? the grounds, and toe werd went from mouth to mouth, *4 No fire-works postponed!" The r.iore inquisi tive inquired a? to the previse time the fire werks would be -setoff/' This information i;ot being in tLe possession of the persons who were interrogated on the subject, th<*y re spectfully referred the inquirers to the officer* having the fir -works in charge. .S) soon as the postpone iner t of the pyrotech* nic display b<;c;?mc generally known, vity many perstus -j.-wiy retraced their steps home ward. while olheis pressed into the grounds in the direction oi the fountain, where th^ Marine Band w?_rc discoursing most excellent music. The mdody compensated, in part, for the absence of the lire-works, which latter, a it will be seen by an article in to-day's paper, will be ,4 burnt on some future occasion. Accident ?Ye.'teid.y afternoon, four little boys, troni five to fifteen years of age. were playing^wkh a -iaitridgc which Inul been ob tained, it i* <aid, fr^.u one of the U!rig;!zi:ics ??f th: a.ti lery corps, winra they were preparing to fire the salute at 12 o'cloJk. One ot tho boys laid the cartiidgc on the pave merit and applied a match to it. The othoi gathered round to see it explode. Supposing the fire had been extinguiohed, the lad pre pared to apply another match, the smaller leaning over t<> sec it done, when the ]>owder expi red, severely burning three, and singing the fourth. They were taken to their homes or dwellings near by on Thirteenth-and-a-half street, where ail that could be done for their relief wa? performed. The screams of one of the little sufferers could bo heard by persons on the oppo.-ite fide ot the >treet. although the house was closed at the time. The eldest b.,y. f?n ot Mr. A. Roux. i> the le;i>t injured; a son of Air It. Frere. is burnt in the face and under hi- chin. It i: probable he would have been killed but for the pu.-ition of his hat. which saved him from the lore- of the powder. The other lads are brothers, tons of a gentle nan residing near the Sinittaionian Institution building. They are dangerously, if not fatally injured. While writing, we have been in famed that the younger of those brothers died this morning at Lw ? o'clock. Pic Nil h of the .Seniors.?Yesterdav was i>io day selected by many of our citizens for the enjoyment of every -pecies of fun. Pic Nics and txeurd >:is were so numerous that it would require a mammoth sheet t?. publish tiit detail, of one-tlnrd of them. Every kind of conveyance was in d. maud; coaches, wagons, horses, steamboats, n-hooneis, scows and fkiff-. all in teivice at excellent prices. >? e regret tnat many ot our triends were so completely ducked, especially ladies, though wc think we have rcas n to rejoice tnat none were drowned in the tremendous storm. We navo heard ol but one accident which hap p;ntd t> any of the parties out. We were u Id that a party that went to the Great Falls 1 st a valuable horse by drowning; how the accident occurred wc have not been informed. A run.b-r of the companies returned to this city about d'ir?:, -? 11 apparently delighted with their sThij ts. ^i ' joking one another about the coU'iiti m of their ? good clothes." T'avgkrocs Assault.?Yesterday, three - 'or,,d persons mad ; n attack upon another named Tho:'. ltuiler, who, although he is dan geru'is! v wound >1. appears to be happy t'. at he escaped with his iife. Three attacked him. and iw.j held him while the third went cooly ti? work at his face ? nd throat with a rough looking pocket-knife. The wound upon his throat w..u!l h.ive been fatal, had he been c! >ser to the knife, us it began at the back of hi-1 ii ek n. i continued rou:-d over the jugular arteiv, as if th?- intention were to sever the h? ad from the bo<ly. The next cut be^an on the ehetk. near the ear. the knife penetrating thp.ugh the cheek into the tongue, inflicting an ugly wound from the beginning tc the month. Butler vas taken to the iufinnary to receive surgical attention. Two of the party. Jack li 'lloumn and C. Tasker. were arrested by officer handy, r.nd carried before Captain Birch, who sent them to jail. A Veterax"' Wheel?TheUnited States artille;y comnady, now in Washington, is, a? is well known, of tliat description of force which did su< h marked and wonderful flecu tion during the Mexican campaign.

The Ethiopian Troi t*e again perform at Odd Fellow? Hall this e vet ing 'Iheir per formauccj will doubtless amuse, aa the band comprises some of the most tale. U*! of tbftt dvtvripuvn vl mel /UiUi oxid [ua St. Mathrwr Scan at School?The chil dren of St. Mathew's Sunday school, superin tended by their reverend pastor. Father Jas. IVuelao, and oilier?, duly celebrated tbe great anniversary of American independence. The company assembled in a remote and shady place in the forest, about two miles from the city, to manil'eet that republican spirit which lias. at nil time*, characterized that youthful b:ind. The leaders tcft nothing undone to pro mote the happiness and comfort of all assem bled there. It was edifying to witness the de corum and regularity so we! I preserved throughout the entire occasion. The grnccful ress and ea^e with which the young ladies and their companions moved through tho merry dance was no less worthy of admiration. Un fortunately the rain falling very heavy dis Eer^ed the pirtv at an early hour, father kirn-Ian exerted himself unsparingly to shel ter the many who bad not where to t ike refuge, and thus expose I himself for the benefited his little ones. Were it not for this disappoint ment the affair promised to be exceedingly pleasant one. Sabbath School Celebration.?The Wcs l*y Chapel Sabbrth School spent yesterday in Berry 5 woods. hen the rain commenced falling, the children scam|K-red to the (Jlcn wh?1 Cemetery, where a number of them luund shelter in the sexton'squarters. Those of th? Ryland Chapi I were at Roche's spring, and ll.-d from the pelting of the stnrin to tin barn on the iireiafscs. Tho children of Mc Kendrec Sabbath School had their sport spoiled at Gales' woods. The pupils of the church of which tbe Rev. A. ?J. Carothera. is the pastor, enjoyed themselves in Ivibbey's w.ods. The riiin was the only bar to the en joyment oi tho -little people. ' many of whom had their clothe* drenchcd. We have heard of no other Sunday Schools who repaired to the woods for their lourth of July enjoyuients. Ejq?* \\ e arc compelled to omit to-day. owing to the pressure on our columns, our George town letter, giving particulars of the celebra tion of the fourth o, July, aid other matte.a of importance to th^ general reader. The following paragraph is selected from the com munication of our correspondent: " The fl >ur market remains very quiet, with but litMe doing; held this morning at $9.50 a Ml. 4 5 for standard brands. No grain arriving. Siles of new wheat to arrive ucxl week at >1.87i for prime chaff, red. Com would not command over "rd. The Market.?We have seen our principal market better supplied on many occasions than it was this morning, and prices lower. Now that there is an indication of excellent crops, itc hope that priccs will return to the old livin* rates.

One young man wa-< shot, and died in half an hour. Several others were injured by shot and stones, but none dangerously. A most j intense excitement followed. The police have arrested some 24 turners. There is no sufficient excuse for the use of 1 pistols by tho turner?, and public opinion is decidedly against the action of the turners.
