EVENING STAR. LOCAL IHHI1IOEHCB. v^t* Fltis? Artillery?The following communication from the chairman of the com mittee of arrangements for the national cele bration of the Fourth, has reference to the failure of thie troop to join the procession. He corrects our misapprehension as to the circum lunces under whien they were ordered hither, which arose from the iact that we knew that there were previously no United States troops ia Washington to fire the usual national salute cd the occasion. The question left in issue i" roly that of the propriety of permitting the troops of the United States to participate in tie affair, after one portion of our fellow-citi ijd? had determined to make it a party affair by getting up a rival celebration tone attended by thoae who act with them politically We lake it for granted that this wa? the only rea son why the Secretary of War countermanded the order which we now understand to have been given before the Know Nothings pub lished their purpoee of getting up a celebra tion of their own. Mr. Editor In your paper of this evening you say; ?'The United States Flying Artillery, that had been ordered to Washington to file the usual national salute at noon, did not take any other part in the ceremonies of the day, as had been -expected by those concerned in making the PRrrangement.? for the national celebration. A f standing army regulation makes it the duty of i United States troops, wherever they may be and however engaged, at noon of the Fourth of July to fire a military salute in honor of the occasion. As there are no United States troops or seamen here accustomed to manage field pieces or other cannon, the Light Artillery were ordered on from Fort M"Henry for th'it duty, which they performed Many of otii fellow-citizen* seemed much disappointed be cause they failed to join in the pnve^aion. It N struck us as highly improper that they should do so, as our Know Nothing fellow-citizens having determined to have u celebration of their own. tho original one wa? necessarily at tended by but one political party All pervuis of discretion will at once perceive the impro triety of ordering or permitting troops of the ti.el Sa:os to participate in anything smacking ot political party Upon reading this paragraph one is necessa rily led to the conclusion, that the United States Flying Artillery was ordered here solely to fire a saint* at noon because there were no I tr^-ps or seamen in our city competent to per form such a duty ; and that the committee of arrangements for the celebration of tho na tionall anniversary had introduced those troops into their programme without authority Injustice to the committee of arrangements I deen? it incumbent on mo to aasert, moat pos * sitivtly, that the.-?? troops were orde red to the city of Washington solely to participate with the citizen* in the celebration of the 4th ot ?^uly, and for no other purpoe?*?they did not come here either to hie <* calute at m?on, us is customary, or "on a trip of pleasure"?and that the eommitteo of arrangements were fully authorized to include them in the programme. L and fire morning. no^.n. and night. Why thia k.ffu not done. others. who can. may answer W If (when application wa- made I'.w the Artil lery to be ordered to thin city for the purposes mentioned' the request of the committee bad f been refused, or even if the committee had , been apprised earlier than 9 o'clock p. m . on the 3d inst . that the artillery would not unite in the celebration and give the salutes, they would have made other provisions, and they would have been saved much trouble and no little mortification I shall not attempt to counteract your views in regard to the propriety of Inited States troops uniting with civilians, iu celebrating the iourth of July, or upon the army reg-nla new* on this subject?but this I must say. that it would have been tar moru agreeable to ? the committee to have been made nwaro ol these opinions and regulations before they were induced to believe the United State* FS'ng Ar?ill?rp would ui.ite in the procession t I \wiaim, in making tUf statement, any dis I r?*pe<?t. or a desire t<. impute improper Motiv L to any one My ?fcyaet 1- to SMIMt the ini'or W ence? to lie drawn from tho paragraph in your T paper, and, at the same time justify my ' fellow citizens. a- well as myself, in the pait wa have enacted in endeavoring to celebrate our National Annivrrsury ina national mar. i ner, without refereu?*e or re^pevt to individuals or to party Hoping you will receive what I havo said, in the spirit in which it is meant, I am very respectfully. yauTS, 4c , Taos.

After giving three cheers for the American tl&g, the ?oeekers, the committee of arrangements, and tie proprietor of the grove, Mr Kibbey, the meeting was dismissed with the benediction; and about sun- lown. the school returned to the city delighted with th.ir happy trip.

Flying Artillery Exercises ? Between six and sf-ven o'clock yefterdty evening wut ?tirring and an exciting time on the Washing ton National Monument ground* It having been announced that the United States Artillery would there manoeuvre, seve ral thousands of persons?men, women, and children, of both sexes and nearly all ages? were duly in attendance. The base of the Monument was thick with human beings, who had there taken their positions to be out of harm's way. and the roofs of the small frame building? on the premises were crowded with men and boys, from which elevation they had a fine view of the exciting and novel military evolutions on the beautiful and level green spread out before them. All were evidently highly delighted with the activity and accuracy with which the difficult and novel drill was performed. Three rounds of the battery of four brass pieces were repeat edly fired within a minute; while during the next, the gun? and those who manoeuvred them were borne a way and placed in position, some distanco from the scene of the last cannonade, and again, with wonderful celerity, made ready tor action. The horses, as well a* the men. seemed perfectly to understand the sounds of the bu?te, by which, in addition to tho voice j of the commander, the movements were con t -oiled. Tho boys, and men. ?jo, who had gathered near the tiring parties, stimulated by curiosity to gt t a good and satisfactory view, were again and again compelled to scamper, as the horses ^!.<l ttiuir artillery, and human attachments, flew from ?>ne part of the grounds to another, ?u the performance of their evolutions But tor the ieg activity of the last named descrip tion of lookers-on, some accident might have occurred, for in peace a* well as in war orders in the military department must be obeyed; and therefore the artillery dashed on, accord ing to the command, unmindful of human ob structions. Every b?nly was doubtless convinced of the raie efficiency of an aimy wing of the charac ter of the flying artillery The dreadful exe cution by this means during the Mexican cam paign lias placed it among the most successful means tor destroying life. As the design of war is to kill people by wholesale, (however much we may deprecate such appalling conflicts,) the purpose can be ? fleetuaily accompli hed. on a fair field, by the artillery, who fly from point to point, selecting their own mark- for the fury of their big guns The corps is under the command ol Lieut Me. hai.t, und numbers seventy-five man.

After forming in line, the children and teachers marched from their new churcb down Pennsylvania avenue to Seventeenth street, and thin proceeded direct to the rounds formerly ov ned and occupied by Gen. an Ness, but uow owned by the hospitable Mr. Green, of the Warrenton Springs, whfi opened his hviirt. his house. anJ all his prem ise.- to the lull and free enjoyment of the school This ieeim.il tho more grateful, be c ? u-e arrangements had heen made to spend tha day at Kaloiama. but which were de ranged by a celebrati >n of another charactei on those ground* The exeicises of the dav were attended thioughout with very happy interest, and all seemed to enjoy themselves very much. ?
