EVENING STAR Celebration of the Fourth of July in 8ant Fe, Hew Mexico. [Correspondence of the Evening Star.) Susta Fa, Julj 26, 18*5. Mr. Editor : It is iny purpose to give you notice of the colebration of tho 4th of July i this far distant and secluded portion of 01 Union. Tho performances of the day wei conducted in a beautiful and imposing mat ner. No accidents, no disorder, no fights, n drunkenness or bad onduot occurred to ma the pleasures of the day or entertainment* < the evening. The Masons were out in regalia, and, heade by the brass band of Col. Fauntleroy's regi ment, they man.bed from the lodge ro.?m t the Plaza, in iront of the Governor's pal act Tho band made tho welkin ring with rich noU of sweet harmony; and as we looked alof and saw the stars and stripes fluttering in th breeze at the top of the flag-staff, wo te!t tba we had aoountry, a matchless republican, fre country ! A handful of Americans as we si.r in the midst of seventy thousand Mexicaff?, a yet unfamiliar with our history and institu tiona?surrounded by hostile and plunderinj tribes of untrained savages, and ^cumingl] forgotten in our interests and welfare by th< Government of the United States?yet on thl day the glorious reminiscenccs ot the pa?* an< blessed hopos of the future came throngioj upon us with redoubled vigor. The procession was formed a few minute before twelve o'clock, under the direction o Mr. Elias Brevort, marshal of the day, an< consisted of Hon. David Meriwether, Gover nor; lion. Wm. M. H. Davis, Secretary of th Territory; Hon. ? Deavenport, and Hon Perry E. Brocchus; the members of the Ma sonic lodgo. and the military officers from va rious parts of the Territory; the speaker oi the day, and tho citizens genera-ly?Ameri cans and Mexicans. At 12 o'clock, in., the proccssion marchet around the Public Plaza, and tho usual salut< was fired; after which tho whole body entere* the court-house, where the band played sev eral national airs in flno style. The Declara tion of Independence was then read in thi Spanish language by Mr. Charles P. Clever an l a neat, elegant and pitriotic speech wai delivered in tho Spanish by a native New Mexican. Don Nicholas Quintana ; after whicl the Declaration of Independent was read in English by the Hon. Perry E. Brocohus. who prefaced it with a few beautiful, eloquent, and appropriate remarks, a copy of which! through the politeness of Judge Brocchus, I enclose for publication. Remarks of the Hon. Petry E. Brocchus, before. reading the Declaration of Inde pendence. I his day seventy-nine years ago. the sun which now shines upon a happy nation ol American freemen, emitted it* rays upon au injured and oppressed people?a Sparta;' few, who, resigning for a season, the pursuits ol peace for those of war, determined to write with their blood the charter of their liberties. \\ hat the holy Scriptures were to the spir itual salvation of a fallen world, in the mana cles of human depravity, such was the Decla ration of American Independence to the tem poral solvation of mankind in tho cha'ns oi political bondage. Both were consocrated by precious blood?the one by streams drawn from the veins of a crucified Redeemer?the other by a crimson flood from the hearts of martyrs in the cause of human right*. The one points, with the finger of faith, to a fairer land and brighter clime beyond these subluna ry scenes?the other, by the light of hope, guides the patriot's oye to the distant future j to luxuriate in the countless, priceless bless ings to be enjoyed by the remote posterity of the free. Tho one has eternity for the dura tion ot its benefactions?the other, in its be I nignaut influence on the human race, will be bounded only by eternity, and have its end only when time shall be no more. Tho tnc. written by the inspiration of divinity, has God for its author?the other, written by the inspiration of liberty, has for its author the genius of universal freedom. Assembled as we aro to commemorate the day on which the mom of freedom dawned upon our land, it is well for us t-) turn our eyes. our minds, our hearts to this sacred de claration of the freo?to this illustrious and enduring charter of a glorious and inalienable inheritance. From every line, and every word, we may imbibe the sweet and ennobling inspirations of wisdom, justice, moderation, and virtue. At each annual return of the day, which declared for us a station and a name amongst the nations of the earth, let us press it fondly to our bosoms. While we admire aad revere its great and h ?ly pruo^pts, let us imitate and rival the sublime example of it3 immortal Iramers. Then, the freemen of America, whether upon the ocean-shore where their banner wad unfurled, or here, where it now proudly float* in the midst of the wilder ness, will have the proud satisfaction of seeing the American eagle not ouly shadow r.nd pro tect, with its wings, our owu beloved *and, but bear, in its mighty talons, this great charter of human freedom throughout the Universe, to irr&diato, to gladden, and emancipate the world. While we now read it in tho language in which it was first written, on the hemisphere on which it was fiist promulgated, and vith the reveronco in which it was first conceived, so, ero long, may it be read ia every language, heard in every land, and reverenced by all mankind ! After the reading of the Dec'aration of In dependence, tho audience was entertained with an oration from the Hon. J. Houghton, whiuh done hc-jr to tho speaker and the oc casion. Tho speaker was frequently inter rupted with bursts of applause, but tho length of the oration forbids us copying the whole ot it; but as a specimen of its eloquence and beauty, wo givo you a few passages, which impressed themselves upon our memory with unusual force. The speaker said, apeaking of the Constitution: "Progress, prosperity, greatness?all that wo aro. all that we hopo to be, we owe to that great gift of our fathers, that great band of union and compromise?the constitution. Our gratitude for it should be heartfelt and endu ring. _ Thrice, thrice has sectional prejudice, fanaticism, and guilty personal ambition as sailed it, and amidst the stormy strife thrice ha? this sacred edifice seemed tottering to its fall; but the people, the people have always been true to it, and rallied around it, and thus far on in our history, amid the fury of the darkest political commotion, men for the time and the ocoa&ion have been able to say to the tempest, " Peace, be still." "Through all the din of party strife, of fanatical aud guilty personal ambition, the flag of our Union still floats aafe and pure, not one stripe erased, not one star obscured." Our wide-spread domin ions kiss the shores of either ocean, the sails of our commerce catch the breeze of every sea. Our navy rides the wave equally respected with the proudest of the world. Our army everywhere present on our boundless frontier whether in civilized or savage war, never ceases to acquire fresh laurels. Such are our causes of selt gratulation on this the seventy ninth anniversary of our independence." Tho following band of efficera participated in the celebration of the day: John Garland, Col. 8 inf., Brer. Brig. Gen. Thcs. I. x auutleroy, Ool. 1st Dragoon# Dixon L. Miles, Lieut. Col. 3d Infantry.

USING A WHOLE EGG. A friend told us a story, a few daji sinoe, illustrating the free, generous character of the Ir;.-h. which we consider two good to be loet and therefore gir? it to our readers : Our friend's wifo being in delicate health it was resolved that a girl should be procured to do the housework, that the lady might hare an opportunity to recorer her health and spirits. After risiting an intelligence office for two or three mornings, a fine buxom lass of about twenty years of age, but six months from swate Ireland, was selected and instructed as to the duties that wc uld be expected of her. Now. then.' says the lady, 44 pour the grund coffee into the pot, then pcur in the hot water, and after a few minutes boiling, put in one-half of an egg ao;" and the lady illui trated each description by demonstration 4* lou understand, don't you ?" says the lady! . ^Qdade I do, mum. was the response, * bile the coffee, grind in the wather, and dhrop in the half of an egg. Isn't that it mum ?'* " All right," replied the lady. ? Now, then, to-morrow morning we'll see how well you re member it " To-morrow morning came, and the eoffee was as good as could be expected. The third morning came, and to the astonishment of our friend and wife, the coffee was undrinkable, and nauseating; eren the odor of it was sick ening. Bridget was called, and queationed as follows: ' 44 Bridget, did yon first put the ground cof fee in the pot ?" " Indade I did, mum." " Did you then pour in the hot water V* " Sure I did." " How long did you let it boil ? 44 Fire minutes, mum." 44 What did you do then?" 441 put in the egg. mum." "??* " you the other morning?'' ?? ?lj, to tell the ttiruth mum," says Bnd get, giving her garments a hitch with her brawny hands, "to tell ye the thruth. I would nor put m the half of the egg, as re tould me, but toe egg was a bad one, and I tbouzht ye wouldn t mind about leaping the half of it, and so I dhropped in the critter as it was!" The Aged Lover.?44 N?> longer a lorer!*' exclaimed an aged patriarch; 4' ah ! you mis take mo if you think age has blotted out my ,,art_. ?,U<iuSh fall orer a brow all wrinkled and a cheek all furrowed, yet I am a lorer still. I lore the beauty of the maiden s blush, the soft tint of flowers, the singing of birds, and. abore all, the silrery lau^h oi a child. I lore the ?tar-like mea dows where the buttercups grow, with almost the ?ame enthusiasm as when, with mr ring lets flying loose in the wind and my "cap in hiiud, rears ago, I chased the painted butter fly. I lore yon aged dame. Look at her. He* face is careworn, but it has erer held a smile for me Oiten hare I tbared the bitter cup of sorrow with her?and, so shared, it seemed almost sweet. Years of sickness hare stolen the freshness of life; but, like the faded rose, the perfume of her lore is il:her than when in the full bloom of youth and maturity To gether we hare placed flowers in the case ments, and folded hands of the dead ' to gether wept orer little grarcs. Through sun shine and storm we bare clung together; and now she sits with her knittingThor oap quaint ly trilled, the old-styled kerchief crossed white and prim, aboro the he ?rt that has beat sj long and truly for me, the dim blue eye that shrinkingly front the glad day; the sun light, throwing her a parting farowell, kisses her brow, and leares upon its faint traoery of wrinkles angelio radiance. I see, though no one else can. the bright, glad young faee that won me first, shine through those withered features, and the growing lore of forty years thrills my heart till the tears com?. Say not again I can no longer be a lirer. Though this fona be bowed, God implanted eternal lore within. Lat tho ear be deaf, the eye blind, hands palsied, the limba withered, the brain clouded, yet the heart, the true heart, may hold such wealth of lore, that all the power of death and the rictcrious grare shall not be able to put out its quenchless flame." -*Ier:ted PrMSHaiST ?A few days since we noticed the arrest of a young man named Wm. Surr on tho charge of indecently assault in? a Httle thirteen years, named Alice hnowles. The case came up for trial before the Criminal Court on Saturday, when tic prosecutrix stated the facts as they oc curred. She stated that the was at tbo house of a man named Berry, from whom she had been taking lessons on the piano, and that Surr, who boarded in the house of Berry, entered the parlor where she wax alone, and took liberties of a disgraceful char acter with her. While giring this testimony she was much affected and had the sympathy of nearly erery person in the o^urt room. An e ffort was male to prove that she was a girl of equivocal character, but it utterly failed, as the witness KiMnmoned for that purpose stated that he nerer knew an impropriety of which she was guilty. Upon tho whole atatement of the case the court ordered him to be impria oned for sixty days and pay a fine and coats of $32 32 Surr is a native of Virginia, though he has lived for some time past in Zanesvii'e Ohio, coming to this city only some two or three weeks since. Though the punishment for the offence was exemplary, it was gener ally thought to be just.?Bait. Awterit Fightings ow EqrAt. Teres.?Judge A., a celebrated duellist, who had lost his leg, and who was known to be a dead shot, challenged Col. D., a gentleman of great humor and at tainments. The friends tried to prerent the meeting, but to no effect. The parties met om the ground, when Col. D. was asked if he was ready. 4*No," he replied. 14 What are yoo W2 ;t'.Lg for, then ?" inquired Judge A.'s sec ond/7. Why, air," said Col. K., 441 hare hare sent my boy into tho woods to hunt a beo gum to put my leg in, for I don't intend to gire the judge any adrantage orer me. Ton see he has a wooden leg !" The whole party roared with laughter, and the thing was so ridiculous that it broke up the fight. Ool. D. was afterwards told that it would rink hie reputation. "Well," he replied, "it can't sink me lower than a bullet caa." 4 But,*' urged his friends. 4'the papers will be filled about you." " Well," said ne,441 would ra ther fill fifty papers than one cofln" No onf ever troubled the Colonel star that.
