EVENING STAR. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Fireworks Exbiiition !?We understand from Lieut. Symraes, in charge of the fire works. that they have been sufficiently repair* d to be exhibited tcuigkt, commencing at y p. m But in order to obviate universal dis appointment in some degree, thre4 successive, shots from a six pound gun at 7 p. m. will an nounce the postponement till the next evening (and soon till they are fired) in case the rain should again disable them (If the three guns nre not fired at 7 p. m., of course there is no postponement.) Some of tlio pieces are pro bably damaged, and it is presumed all are more or lew injured, for whicn the public will, of course, make due allowance. The display may be seen from the President's Mansion, cut undoubtedly the best stand-point is be tween the monument and bridge. It is hoped ?the public will keep clear of the dangerous premises on which tne fireworks are immedi ately located. PROGRAMME OF FIREWORK*.

The Promenade Concert.?Owing to the rain which had very recently ceased, the promenade concert on Saturday afternoon in the public grounds immediately south of the Executive mansion was not as well attended as usual, though a large concourse of Indies, .gentlemen, and children with their nurses, were present. The air was delightfully ccol, and a bracing breeze was blowing, which seemed not only to give life and vigor to the ?company on the ground, but to inspirit the Marine Band, which was out in all its strength, to extra exertions. The pieces for the occa sion were happily chosen as follows vi* : Hail Columbia. Morning Star Polka, Grand Quickstep Medley, Ro^e Lee, Mary Blane, Overture Fra Diavola, Cora Memoria (flute? {?iccolo?solo,) M.?nte Blanc Polka, Medley, Citty Dear, Anty Stowe. Kathleen Mavour neen W altz. My home, my home, my happy home, in quickstep time. The band excelled on this occasion any of their previous performances in the public grounds and were listened to mnch more atten tively than usual. During the performance of the variations on the beautiful theme Cora Memoria, a beautiful set. indeed, all present remained fixed in their several positions. the music completely overcoming the many in ducements to stroll around. Young Frederick Proaperi proved himself, in his execution on the piccolo of those variations, one of the veiy finest performers in the country on that de lightful and so effective instrument in concert when played by a master performer. The *hole arrangement of the piece was beautiful, and should be published, the accompaniiuc * being in capital taste, indeed. Union Academy.?This institution, which is located on the corner of New York Avenue and Fourteenth street, under the superintend ence of Mr. Z. Richards, an indofatigable and successful instructer, celebrated the close of the scholastic year on Friday evening by a public distribution of premiums. The heavy Tain which occurred aoout the time appointed for the commencement of the exercises prevent ed the attendance of many who would other wise have been present. The unfavorable weather was not, however, sufficient to dampen the ardor ot the pupils, particularly the suc cessful competitors for tho rewards of merit, who received their several prizes with joyful hearts and iiniling countenances. The exer cises of the female department of this acade my, under the care of Mrs. Richards, consis ting of the reading of comj>ositions and the distribution of premiums, took place in tl* ?aftercom. Both branches of tne academy were closed by appropriate remarks from the teachers, and will re-open on the first Monday is September next. Georgetown Collegk.?The annual com mencement of this institution is to take plac? to-morrow, commencing at nine o'clock in the morning. The Marine Band will be in atten dance, and performance twenty pieces, under the direction of the leader, Professor Scaln? among them the following named popular airs: Overture?Fra Diavalo; Modley?On tfco banks of th? Guadalquivir ; Schronbrunner Walts; Cavatina from the opera of Ernani; French Horn Solo; L'Kco du Mont Blanc Polka ; Medley?Kathleen Mnvourneen?ded icated to F it her M iguire by the leader of the band; Le Duetto Terzetto e Duetto, from the opera of Ernani; Le tre Noxze Schottisch; Evening Star Walt*; Medley?My home, my happy Some ; Jeuny Lind's Song. The mem bers of the graduating class of the College will deliver lectures on various subjects of moral philosophy this afternoon, commencing at five ? clock. The exercises will bo open to the public on both occasions. The Pcfils of tub Washington Seminary made a beautiful appearance as they marched through our streets tnis morning, accompanied by Prosperi's band. The boys were uniformly clad in white pantaloons, black jackets and fiat caps, wearing badges and sashes, indica tive of the several classes to which they be long. The stars and stripes and other banners were carried in procession. The faculty walked in the rear. They proceeded to Carusi's Saloon, where many ot the pupils delivered speeches and dialogues before the crowded auditory, acquit ting t htm selves creditably. Our limits pre vent us from publishing the pr??gramme. The address of Richard W. Clarke, E?q., to the students, was highly appropriate and elo quent The band played during the intervals of the declamation. The distribution of premiums concluded the ?xercisee. . The Rev. Mr. Folla.isbee preached a ser mon in W esley Chapel, yesterday morning, his argument being to prove that a"day has been set apart for a general judgment. He acquitted himself with credit. This young gentleman is a native of Wash ington. and is a member of the Texas Confer ence of Methodists. He appears to be in deli cate health, and this mav have superinduced hi? return hither, in the hope of improving it, ?f M agsin to revisit the scenes of his childhood, around which cluster so many heart touching memories. Distribj tio* of pRsmmg among the T>uptU of St. Vincent's Day School and Asy lum, announced to take place on Tuesday, ?***' w* have been requested to state, been postponed until Wednesday morning, the 10th Jnitiiul, at nine o'clock, in order to afford the ^ institution an opportunity of at tending the commencement oi Georgetown Col leg#, which li tu take place t^owrrow imn. ?? Ptblic Schools.?Tho Board of Trustees met last Saturday evening; present.?Dr. Chas. W. Davis, chairman, Messrs. Dickinson, Ba con, Magrudor, Hanson, AtLee, Knight, and Pearson. Letters of application for teacherships were received from Mis* Bradley and Mr. Farley; which were read and referred. Leave of absence was given to Mrs. Coale in consequcncc of sickness. Miss Campbell's resignation was received and aoceptea, and the sab-board of the first district authorized to fill the vacancy tempo rarily. Tbo sub-board of the first district ?u also authorized to make the necessary arrange ments for the ocoupancv of the new school house recently purchased, aud to give the cus tomary notice to the trustees of the Potomac QmmL The several sub-boards were instructed to make the customary arrangements for the de livery of the annual addresses. On motion of Mr. AtLee the 48th rule was amended so as to read : '?The teachers are required and directed to read selections from the Bibles presented by the American Bible Society, without note or comment, in their respective sohool?, as an opening exercise." The following resolution, on motion of Mr. Hanson, was presented and laid on tho table, to up for consideration at the next meeting : '?Whenever a pupil, in nny one of the pub lie schools, shall have been absent five days in any one month, unless such absence bo occa sioned by the sickness of such pupil, or by the presence of a contagious disease in the family to which the family belongs, it shall be the duty of the teacher to strike the name of the pupil from the roll of the school, nnd such pu pil, after being so suspended, shall not again be considered a candidate for admission till the commencement of the following scholastic year " The object of the rule is to prevent the loss and waste of school-time by the unnecessary absence of the pupils, and to make room for pupils who will attend school regularly. Tho teachers report that from one-quarter to one fifth of the school-time is lost by the staying away of the pupils, whilo a large number, who want to be admitted, are daily refused admis sion. At the present moment there arc one hundred and eighty-two pupils applying in vain for admission, all but eleven of whom are in tl*e third and fourth districts. The usual monthly reports, with one excep tion, were received. The following list of books was ordered to bo usod from the commencement of the next scholastic year: ron PRIMARY SCHOOLS. Holy Bible. ? Swan's Spelling Books, Nos. 1, 2, 3. Swan's Headers, Nos. 1, 2, 3. Swan's Grammar School Keader. Payson and Dunscomb's Writing Books. Perkins's Primary Arithmetic.

Pleasure in prospect.?It will be seen, by tcrence to our advertising columns, that the '.excursion of the American Friendship Associ ation to the White House, will take place to morrow; the Steamer Thomas Collyer, whijh has been engaged for the occasion, leaving the wharves of Washington, Georgetown, and Al exandria, in the morning, at the hours named. Prosperi's band has been engaged, a fact which doubtless will be gratifying to those who love to dance. The good things of the season will be served by a popular caterer. The weather promising to be extremely pleasant, will heigh ten the enjoyment. The G?kx1 Will Club have chartered the Steamer Georce Washington, rnd will givo their first grand "Moonlight Excursion and Pic-Nio" at the White House pavilion on Thursday, the 19th instant; and they have, following the fashion and consulting the taste of the times, engaged a superior brass and string band for the occasion. The Western Hose Company announce their Grand Firemen's and Civic Moonlight Excur sion. in the Steamer George Washington, for Monday afternoon, the 231 of July. Fisher's band has been engaged. The inembersof "Our Club," of Georgetown, announce a Grand Pic-Nic and Excursion down the Potomac, on or about tho 16th of the pres ent month. "The M^rry Bachelors" intend having a Grand Pic-Nic at the White House on the 26th instant. HoKRin.?This morning, while wo wero sit ting in a police office, a gentleman caino in very much excited, and asked for a warrant to search the house of a w<>man named Ann Padgett, situated in that section of the city usually designated as Swamp-j>oodle. The gentleman has a daughter thirteen years old. and she left his house last Saturday night, and had not returned. Upon inquiry for ner this morning, a young man told him that he had seen her at that house. The parent made his statement to the Justice in the presence of several gentlemen who were no doubt favora ble to "Lyueh law" in such cases, and would willingly have united to deal justice to both parties concerned in the attempt to ruin the child; but which should be most severely dealt with, the receiver or the enticer, it is hard to determine. Funeral Sermon.?Yesterdav morning, a sermon was delivered in the Methodist Pro testant Church, Ninth street, by tho pastor, Rev. P. L. Wilson, uj?on the death of Mrs. G. A. Davis, late an exemplary member of that society. The reverend gentleman selected as his text the first clause of the 21st verse of the third chapter of the Epistle to the Phil lipians. This discourse was such a one as should produce the effect intended. Rid of all unnecessary display, it was a pulpit effort more nearly approaching our iUeas of the preaching of primitive Methodist ministers whose labors wore so successful Mrs. Thompson, of Ohio, delivered a lec ture on the subject of total abstinence, in Tern ft ranee Hall., last night, before a large asscrn ly. Her remarks, as we learn from a gen Uoman who was present, were well received by the auditory, and the manner of delivery, as well as the incidents of the discourse, cred itable to the lady, who, impressed with the solemn duty of warning the public of the bad effoets of intemperance, has spoken in many places, with, as it is to be hoped, profit to those Waom she designed to benefit. The Criminal Court was engaged, this mor ning, in the trial of George Raglan, colored, charged with the murder of an hostler, named Fitzpatriek, towards the close of last May, Mr. Key for the United States, and Messrs. Ratcliffe and Maury for the defence. A Tribe or Red Men, a benevolent associa tion, and composed of members of German birth, paraded this morning, proceeding to the Gardens between the Navy Yard aad the Cougre?.'ional cemetery, there to spend the day The pKxaiDEsr of the United States, togeth er with Mrs. Pierce, returned to the citv oiy Saturday night, ixvm then visit tv C'jpc May Tho?. Butler.?We learn that this colored man who was 00 badly maimed 00 the 4th inat . by three others, is rapidly recovering. The attending physician in a statement before Captain Birch this morning, said, that the woand upon his free was healing kindly; and the weapon which made this wound, had. at the same time reached his tongue and split it nearly in half. Indians About!?Six Indians, including a squaw with her papoose, arrived this morning, with the iutentionof seeing Washington. They are from Arkansas, and are dressed in their wild forest costume. Securitt for Peace.?W W. Williamson, threats of violence to officer Mulloy ; security for peace, by Justice Bates. Michacl Harri son, assault; do. Fclly Co**iTTEn.?Ellen Jackson and Thornton Kendall, colored, were fully commit ted to jail for trial, for stabbing Robert Sumby with a butcher knife. [COMlfO'ICATEO. Mr. Editor: Permit an admirer of this City of Magnificent Distances'' to direct the early attention of tho " City Fathers " through one of the rays of the " Evening Star,'' whose brightness and brilliancy is reflected in every nook and crcvicc of tho Metropolis, and whose influence is felt and appreciated likewise, to |ho existence of a groat and serious nuisance, in the very heart of our beautiful city. It is this?on the line of Pennsylvania avenue, both sides of the pavement, between Stott A Co.'s drug store and Seventh street, may be seen standing from morning to night quite a number of furniture wagons, carts, Ac. Whether it has been made a publio stand for vehicles of this description by a municipal regulation or not. I cannot say ; but if such is the fact, its immediate repeal should be made, and some more suitable spot appropriated to their use. Bi hold here, in the very centre of the Metrop olis, on its principal thoroughfare, and prom enade for your " fair ones," may be seen con stantly a number of wagons, carts, drivers, horses. Ac., standing, and by the animals an offal is accumulutcd from day to day, which is permitted to remain, and increase in mag nitude, with the heat from the sun pouring down upon it incessantly, thereby producing an effluvia of tho most noxious character, to be inhaled by all passers-by, your " fair ones not excepted, if, indeed, it does not produce disease. To add to tho picture, at times may be seen tho various drivers, (the greater portion of whom are of a sable com plexion,) some in their shirt sleeves, standing in groups on the pavement, discussing sub jects not of the most refined character, nor in the most classic nor chaste language, and at other times engaged in wrestling, and pugilis tic feats of the " Poole " school, thereby ob structing the thoroughfare to the great annoy ance of all pedestrians. So very objectionable has this nuisance become, that many prome naders, especially of the "fairer portion,*' unless absolute necessity requires it, will not pass below Seventh street to the Capitol, ex pressly to avoid it. and consequently the mer cantile portion of the community on the ave nue, east of Seventh street, are seriously af fected by it. Let us all sincerely pray for an early abolishment of this great nuisance. Yours, Ac., Hal. Watcii Returns.?Wm. Cross, building fire in the streets; costs. Levi Aigner, Mi chael Dickinson, JacobMerrett andJohnOber. profanity; fine and costs. Thos. Woodward, out after hours; dismissed. Ann Green, drunk; dismissed. A Cari> to the Public.?It has been charged against mo by the Know Nothings of the city, and of the Seventh Ward particularly, {hat I furnished the editor of the Star with the list of names of the ancient city of Nineveh. I have taken every opportunity to deny the cor rectness of the report, and even gone so far as to get a certificate from the editor of that paper, denying that I furnished him with the list, but it seems nothing will satisfy them. So far as I am concerned in tho matter, I feel it iny duty, under the circumstances, to place myself in a proner light before the community in regard to these charges. 1^ therefore state that I never upon any oc casion whatever, had any conversation with the editor of the Star upon the subject, nor did I ever furnish him {or any one) with any list of names of any society, as his certificate will show. In making this statement, permit me further to state that I feel it a duty I owe to myself, to my family, as well as to the public, to say that from this time my conncction with the Order of Know Nothings is at an end. I cannot consent to remain any longer with a party that would seek to do me so much injustice. They have threatened mo with violence, and heaped upon me volumes'of abuse, and that of the most vulgar kind. They have gone so far as to at tempt to assassinate me when I was in a strangs tiwn, and that at the midnight hour; but thanks to some kind friends, they were prevented; they havo also, within the last few days, in this city, made a similar attempt. This, cer tainly. is a free country, where every man has the right to express his political sentiments. I therefore, under the present circumstances, and as an American citizen, claim such right; and so long as I have life I will maintain it Know Nothingitm to the contrary notwith standing. I stand onco more upon tho broad platform of the Constitution of the United States, hoping that many others, like myself, may take the same stand, and come out from a party that would seek to do so much wrong in this our country.
