All the indication* for the put month or two hare pointed to a remarkable influx of ?ititers at inauguration time, bat wo prerame faw W ashingtonians anticipated such a poor iog in apon nt from all quarters as the Uit twenty-four hoari has exhibited. Probably oar hotel sod boarding-house keepers, as well aa private citiiens, were never before ealled apon to exeroiae each desperate ingenuity in the eoonomical packing of their Bueets for the night as hu happened since [onday. Georgetown and Alexandria have abaorbed a portion of the inauguration Tit* Iters until tcniey, when, apparently, the en tire population of these neighboring cities, aa well aa their guesta, contribute to swell the immense tide of 'human life now pouring through the streets of Washington Fresh arrivals have a warmed in this morn iag by every avenue of approach and be every conveya nee?cars, steamboats,. omnibuss?s, frivate carriagea. on horseback?and numbers ave come from the country no ineonsiderable distance on foot We hear of two enthusiaa tic young Pennsylvanians who have walked sixty mile* to be present at the inauguration of a son of the Keystone 8tate as President of the United States ! Some such spirit seems to have animated numbers of others who are here to see the inauguration at no small de gree of personal sacrifice and inoonvenience, to say nothing of the chances in the crowded condition ot the city of literally " having no place to lay their heads" at night. MOYBMBBTg THIS *0**1*9. The day epened moat auspiciously, with bright skies ltd a deliciously bland atmoc phere, all the more enjtyable ior its contrast to the blustering disagreeable weather of the past two daya, and which threatened, had it continued, VTdetract in no small degree from the enj>yment of the Inauguration ceremon' . Through the night tfte city was alive with the blase ?>f rockets, the movements of ball goers, the bnstle at the Capitol, (Congress be ing in seaaion all night,) the march of military companies, and the weary tramp on the side walk* of thouaands of visitors unable to obtain lodgings, and who managed a< they could to keep themselves warm by walking about the streets. With the rising of the sun the numerons military companies, delegations and associa tions designing to take part in the procession began to move towards their various points of rendeivous, and this movement thongh but a prelude of the great pageant of the day was sufficient to deluge the sidewalks and house fronts with spectators Among the earlier movements was that of the magnifloent Burgess Corps of Albany, New York, on a visit to Senator Seward. SCX.NB AT THD C1TT ? ALL. Patient groups of spectators oocupied the City Hall steps from an early hoar this morn ing. and the windows overlooking Judiciary Square were filled with city belles and hand some country cousins. Not a few country wagons were drawn up by the curb-stones, filled with substantial Montgomery couoty farmers and their families, and uot a few Prince George bucks pranced around upon horseback, exhibiting witching feats of boruc maasbip before the admiring eyes of the lodie? oa the City Hall steps. The military portion of the procession was orgatised at the City Hall under the com mand of Gen Quitman, commanding the Vol unteer Regiment of the district, and shortly after eleven o'oloek a m , took np,its line of march to join the civic portion of the proces sion, by the way of Louisiana avenaa, Penn sylvania avenue, Thirteenth street, G street, and Fourteenth street to New York avenue along which the civio array was extended with its right resting on Fifteenth street The Marshals, Assistant Marshals and Aids in the morning aiaembted at the residenoe of the Marshal in chief, as follows : Marshals Gen Jchn A Quitman, commanding the mil itarv; Capt Daniel Rateliffe, Capt HB Tyler Dr A Y P Garnett, Dr Wm Jones Major A 0 P Nicholson, Major J N Barker.

TBI SIDEWALKS The sidewalks presented now a most pictu resque and animated moving panorama, the figures in which were composed, not only of representatives of every diversified stripe of national character, but which was not un rparsely sprinkled with the people of almost every nation upon the face of tbe earth. The American element was of cour?e largely in the predominant and in its many sided character afforded a sight quite as well worth seeing as tbe brilliant procession. It was not diifiault to pick out the prim Bos tonian in his milk and molasses colored cloth gaiters, and bis clean pale face, with its Great Britainous side whispers; or the New Yorker in his light colored overcoat, aad with his un disguised look of di^arage.ent of aa inau gural procession, as compared with a Broad* way display ; or tha Pbiladelphian in bis gold rimmed spectacles, and with his carefully brushed teeth, fairly glistening in tha sun shine ; or the Baltyuorean, distinguished by tbe more than brotherly love with whioh he promenaded arm in arm with some Washing ton chum ; or the gallant Virginian, devoting his attention exclusively to the pretty ladei a: the windows and balconies and equally re gardless of the procession, or the oounter d?ning which the inoommoded crowd show ered upon him for damming up the current of motion by bis up gasing halts ; or the South* Western in his yellow bat, unable to enjoy tbe oceaeion thoroughly through the constantly recurring necessity of finding some opening amongst the conglomeration of legs where to deposite the fl *>d of tobacco juice, with which his cheeks were distended Our Washington notability, Beau Hlokman, was, of course, circulating aoout in the crowd, "ringing" his way gracefully through and ef fecting small loet'S from his lieges The great original ? Boquet Man" was on hand, and moreover a host of bogus imitators, including even a colored boquet man. There were boys running about thrusting into every body's hands invitations to " take meals at all hours," or to ?? visit the wild men of Borneo," or the 14 sheep with nine legs," or 44 the Buch anan ox," or *4 the fat woman 22 years'of age and weighing 540 pounds," or to buy 44 Frank Leslie's Pictorial/' THB LIBEBTT POLS AND MINIATUBB SHIP.

The car on which the pole was borne was decorated with various emblems and devices. Peace, War. Commerce, Art, Agriculture. Mecbaa iim, the Fine Arts, and the Aborigine, were all portrayed on the several panels of the car in graceful, artistic style, a living representa tive of the Genius of America surmounting the whole On the rear panel of tbe car waa imprinted the noble sentiment of the President elect, that *4 Labor is tbe foundation of the wealth of every country " A gorgeous liberty cap crowned the summit of the pole, from which was gaily floating in the breete a bril liant American flag, thirty feet in length, at a height of seventy feet This beautiful orna ment was constructed by the mechanics of the Navy Yard, under the direction of the ener getio Rainbow The handsome miniature ship ?* Constitution/' drawn also by six richly ca parisoned horses, and constructed by our Navy 1 ard friends, was likewise the 44 observed of all observers " She was full rigged and equipped, bearing a formidable-loosing bat aianned by several youth* dressed in sailor costume, and bore the Union Jack and two American ensigns.

The President's Reception or Chablei town Citt Guards.?We bod no room yester day for a detailed account of the viait of the Charlestown (Mass ) City Guard to President Pierce, which was full of interest. We there fore toke from the Union its brief and well arranged aynopsis of what then and there took place. ?'The ' Charlestown City Guard.' Captain W. W. Pierce, paraded to visit the President, and elicited warm encomiums as they marched down Pennsylvania avenue, their fine band ied by P S Gilmore?playing ?Rogera' Quick Step' and other popular airs Arriving in front of the White House, the company stacked arms, and marched into the Eart Room, where they formed in line. Soon the President (at tended by Col Green, ol Boston ; Dr Loring, of Salem ; Hon. Albert Currier, of Newbury port; and other Massachusetts gentlemen) en tered the room, and was introduced by Dr. C F. McDonald, of this city, to Capt Pierce, who said : Mr President : I thank you for myself, and for the i ffi jers and members of the corps under my command, for the opportunity you have been pleased to afford us to pay our res pects to you on this occasion. "We represent a portion of the citiien sol diery of the republic?an organisation the history of whose glorious past inspires its members with a patriotic aevotion to their oountry, aud an unalterable attachment to the Union of the States it is our good for tuno to reside in the place where the first great baitle of the revolution was fought Its hal lowed battle ground constantly reminds us of the sacrifices and oost of this Union, and we adjoin the metropolis of New England, the commercial emporium of a community thriv ing and prosperous under the advantages of this good government in such a manner as to daily imprets us with the knowledge of its prioeleas value 4'We have eome this long distance from our homes, most of us treading for the firft time this common territory of our Union, to join iu the honors to be paid on the occasion of the Inanguratlon of tae President who is to sue ceed you We hope, by an interchange of sen timent with our brother soldiers, and our fel low-citiiens from all parts of the country, to impress them, and more strongly oonfirm our own judgment und opinion, that the bond of this Union is so firmly cemented in the patri otic hearts of our oountrymen, that it cbb never be broken. Again, sir, I thank you for the pleasure af forded us by this occasion ; and permit me, in behalf of my oomrades, to express to you their earnest desire that, as you are about to resign the high trust you have honorably sustained and to soon retire to private life in your own New England home, you and your estimable laly may enjoy long-continued years of health, prosperity, aud happiness. President Pierce made a brief yet felicitous reply, expressing his gratification ot wel ooming to the Metropolis a company of citizen soldiers coming from New England, and com manded by one bearing hi? own name. They oame from Banker Hill?a home that must inspire them with patriotism, and with cour age, and with discipline. He regretted that a pressure of official business deprived him of an opportunity to pass more time with them, but mus?, content himself with taking each member of the corps by the hand. t ? j The President then passed down the linel ( shaking hands as he passed along; aud on his return to the right, he introduced General Shields to the corps, and then retired. Soon aiterwarda the line was re-formed before the bite House, and the company, opening ranka, paid a salute, the bond playing "Home, oweet Hone." ??? Thi Yodxq Guard, of Richmond, arrived yesterday afternoon, hoving been detained at Atjuia Creek since Monday on account of the low water iu the Potomac; (through the high wind of Monday,) and where they were in rather an unpleasant fix, without eatables drinkables or sleepables.

By the bles sing of Providence, we as a people again breathe freely and healthfully and look al ready hopefully to our country 's future And to be remembered at a time like this by the very humblest of our brethren and comrades, and to be told by them that our Association, bearing as it does the honored name of Jack son, and adopting for its motto his patriotic sentiment that 1 the Union must and ahall be preserved,' was true and faithful to its duty in the trying times through which we have so lately passed, would be joyfully accepted a* more than an equivalent for the little aid ii rendered, in producing the result which this day sends a thrill of delight throughout the length and breadth of ouf land, and rtjoioes every patriotic heart, whether Demociai or ? n>g But to be so remembered and told by you < f Philadelphia, by you, the worthy de scendants of that gallant race ot men in whose very midiit the Declaration of Independence was, planned and published to an adorning world , by you who, without disparagement to any, may be justly said to have done the best and hardest service in our late contest, and to receive from such as you the beautiful token you have this day presented, in recog nition and appreciation of the humble efforts of our Association, is, indeed, an honor and distinction far, very far, beyond its poor de serving; still it gratefully accepts this evi denae of your regard, and begs l?ave to assure you that, however little it has yet deserved the high honor you have conferred, it will strive bird to prove worthy of it in timo to come. Henceforth, I trust, i s rallying cry will, in the language of the illustrious Web ster, be 1 Union and Liberty, now and forever one and inseparable,' and should danger again menace that Union, and summon ail patriots to do buttle for its defence and pre servation, the remembrance of this day and this scene will nerve the heart and strengthen the arm of thoso for whom I now speak, and 1 hesitate not to assure you that the Jackson Democratic Association w< 11 carry tho banner you have entrusted to its keeping !n triumph I through tho thickest of tho fight, or perish iii the attempt " The supper provided by Potentini, partaken of soon after the presentation ceremonies, was superbly -et out indeed, and won for that ex perienced caterer the warmest approbation.

Ma Justice Dunn dome rok *!! | Last evening, at about 9 o'clock, while our well known fellow-citixen, Justice Donn, was 1 engaged in conversation in the great hall of the National Hotel, a skrimmage occurred among half a dozen young gentlemen, who were " carrying on" with a leetle too much inauguration in their heads, in the bar room nard by Mr Justice Donn, as in duty bound, of course, rushed promptly to the scene of the disturbance to command and enforce the , Whi,e thul "gaged iu the discharge of his duty, ho felt the hand of a scoundrel in his pocket, and of course seised him An ac complice, standing ready for such emergen cies, immediately tipped Mr Justice Donn a "single touch of science' between his "wink ers," which, makii g the fire flash from them, caused him to relax hi* grip on the villain who, not having the fear ot the law before his eyes, had ventured to rob our usually so effi cient functionary thereof. Though there was no lack of policemen around, both the rasoals managed to escape in the melee, ere Mr. Jus tice Denn had sufficiently recovered from tho surprise occasioned by tho adroit way in which the thing was done, to identify them The pocket book thus lost by Mr. Justice Donn contained a trifle of $20 Aloral.?Officer.? of the law on the lay for pickpockets should be as careful asotherfolks not to carry arouad with them, into such crowds as are in overy public place in Wash iegton just now, more money than will buy a segar. Thi Charlrstowx City Guard* left Charleatown on Saturday the 23th ult at 1 0 clock, p in , on their way to Washington, marching through the principal streets of Bos ton and receiving the commendations and cheers of large numbers of their fellow citi zens and friends en route. They proceeded to New York via Lowell, where they were en tertained by the Watson Light Guard of that placa. They arrived at New York at 10 o'c'ock a m , on Sunday, and left at ? p m. lor Baltimore. On their arrival there, they were met by a delegation of the officers of the several military companies of that place Mid escorted to their quarters at the Gilmore House.

After an hour or twy spent at the Guard s quarters very pleasantly, they were escorted to the depot en route for Washington, where they were received by companies of the Distriot volunteers and es corted to their quarters on Capitol Hill.

The Grand Inauguration Ball To-Night. A sit g.o glance at theaba'l room in Judiciary square ae completed serves to show what may be anticipated when it is brilliantly lit ?P filled with the thousands who purpose visiting it to night. The floor, which is of course always an im port ant feature of a ball-room, is a creditable job to the contractor and to the Superintend ent, Mr. Job Angus. The superb chandeliers, VT?? V1? manafrctory of Cornelius and Baker. Philadelphia, will diffuse a flood of softened light through the spacious hall One of these is probably the finest chandelier in the United states. \Y hen these are lit up in cor janc'.ion 7 h the mvriads of gas jets, the eflect may be expected to he almost magical. The gas arrange men is are by Miller and Cunningham of this city. The decorations by Messrs Jo seph Kecso, Handy andllavis, present a beau 'lful appearance even by daylight, and their heightened brilliancy by gas light, can well be imagined. The ceiling is of a pure white ground, stud ded with golden Btars, and the wall decora tions are of the national red, white and blue Ihe adjoining rooms in the City llall have been fitted up to sff.ord the amplest f acilities | f?r ladies as dressing rooms, and a covered carriage way will enable ladies to alight and enter protected from the weather. The management has, in fact, made extra ordinary exertions to secure each guest every possible enjoyment and convenienoe. The hall is spacious, cheerful, and every way adapted to its purpose ; the music engaged is to be the best cotillon music procurable in this city and in Baltimore, and the supper to be supplied by Gautier will be amplo in uuan tiU and excellent in quality. Not often in a life time either will the visitors have an op portunity of seeing so many distinguished personages collected as on to night This ball will indeed be the crowning feature of the In auguration . lux Metropolitan Mechanics' Ixsti tct* ?The exhibition of the Mechanics In stitute was atteuded last night by an immense throng of people, mostly strangers The quiet I and attention which characterized the sjene evidenced the gratification and pleasure which the exhibition afforded thoae preeent. Ihe pleasure of the sccne was enhanced about 10 o'clock by a Tigit of the Burgess Guard of Albany, N Y., accompanied by Dodsworth's celebrated brass cornet band, and escorted by 'he Greys cf our city, Capt Lem Towers While they were partaking of the hospitalitHs of the attending escort the band gave a rich little concert ia such stjle as Dodsworth's band is so justly celebrated for, and the en cores of the audience testified their gratifica tion in a high degree To night the exhibition will be visi-ed by the \oung Guard of Richmond, accompanied by a band from that city. ! The SriRiT-DRc* Concert ?Mr Wm F. Palmer's Grand Prominade Coucert, af er tho style of those of the celebrated Jul lien in London, which isxo come off to-morrow night in the grand ball recently erected in Ju iieiary Square, will bo a great entertainment. Mr. Palmer's spirit-drum, which, being suspended from the ceiling in sight of all, plays iu own part in concert pieces without human intei vention, is to be a wonderful feature The tickets are but 25 cent*. Only think of that! . The Invitation (ladies' ticket) of the Grand Inauguration Ball is a beautiful speci. men of engraving indeed. Embellished with a fine portrait of Mr. Bnobanan. and with an elegantly turned arch, upon the oolumns of which are inscribed the names of the Sta'es and the Territories; the whole presents a pio tare worth of preservation.

A most bountiful en- I tertainment ba>l been prepared and every ar rangement made that couid conduce ti the pleasure of t'uoir friends, but from tomo cir cumstance unforeseen their viiiting brother firemen did not arrive. An Object or Interest.?We would say to those visiting our city at this time that Phil briok's Gift Book Store under Heater's Hotel, is a plan that will interest every intelligent mind, besides the gratification of knowing that you receive nearly double for wbat you invest in beautiful and choice presents. Arsault ? Last night, about 11 o'clock! a young man named Peck was knocked in the bead by a stone thrown by tome one, to our intormer unknown. Mr of this city. kindly picked up Mr Peck and gave him all the attention in his power. We learn that Peck is not dangerously Irjured. briciAL^ Notices, Houses and Rooms far ?cent, Auction Sales, and a number of ether advertisements of interest, will be found on the first and fourth pages cf to-day's Star.
