Imanufacture of anchors is one of the heaviest branches ??f the business of the Navy Yard A cieat deal of work is done for the Brooklyn. Navy ? ard and other stathuis. The principal. Mr. John Tucker is one of the first mechanics in the ronn 7;,# . con,l,,rr" '?"* business in an able and skillful manner. The Blmrksmitk Shop?Here the men are forir ing out ail kinds ol work for the uses of the yard: and also making (Lain cable to supply th* require meats of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This building is Nome hundreds ot feet in extent, and fliled with forges which are all actively employed The Miioke engendered t.y this as well as several other '?ranches of the work, is carried out of the linild ing by means of tlues which convey it off under if round to the smoke stack of the new boiler shop whence it escapes to the open air at a great dis tance from the ground. This branch is supcrin jeuUed by Mr. James Tucker, who is an excellent mechanic and thoroughly understands every de tail of his busiucss. r/t* A*tc Alar hi He S*op, which is in course of erection, will, when completed, occupy a space of ground some feet in extent, and forming three * i." v. fiuare The steam engine? for the use ??f this building, when completed, will be of great power, and are all made by the workmen of our ?wn yard No portion of the machinery except the heavy castings is to be brought from abroad J*he principal business of the old machine shop is ai Ike present time the preparatiou of machinery to complete the new one. At tkr Boiltr Shop the new boilers of the steam frigate Fulton, which is under repairs here, have just been completed and are now being put into net under the direction of Chief KngineeV Hunt 1 tie construction of sheet-iron buoys for the Iie parriueiit is at present going on to a' considerable c-xU nt hi this division of the yard. At lk< Iron Foundry shells are casting for the Ordnance Department aud machinery for the new Machine ?hop. lie Ordnance iJntiding presents a lively as pect The famous Daldgreen howitzers are lie in" made, as also various other engines of human de struction The machinery for manufacturing bul lets, and also tnat used for making percussion ? aps is a great novelty. Ike Laboratory.?Tue visitor is here initiated ?nto the various means employed by civilized governments to blow up their enemies. The manufacture and loading of fuse for " sheil" and other purposes, is an interesting feature of this department. I'aper of considerable thickness is ? ut into narrow strips, on one side of which melted glue is spread : they are then rolled on an iroi?. <jir, which varies in size according to the ? -ta!Te rp?u\nt?" af,t'r becoming completely dr\. these little hollow rolls of paper are placed in an upright position under the filling machine; the fulminate ? then poured in, arid by turning a liorLZontal wheel a steel instrument is shot down, which forces the loading into the fuse so hard that it becomes perfectly solid. The amount of pressure required In the loading process is most exactly determined by the machine When the wheel is turned down to the proper point, a coni jKHind lever is socoiiuected with the loadin*' rod as to fiy up at the instant a small hammer strikes a little bell in the top of the machine, giving the -ignal. The fuse, after being thus loaded, are marked with black stripe* on the outside to .udieate the length of time which they are de signed to burn ; afterwa-ds they are sealed up in I hick paper package*, to the outside of which a . oafing of varnish is applied, making them ini pervious to wet. The only fire allowed in this building is a small spirit lamp, just sufficient to keep the glue of the fuse maker in a liquid state ; this lamp is surrounded on all sides by wafer! and. if disturbed in the least, would be instantly extinguished All this precaution is demanded, ?'ii account of the combustible nature of the mate rial used in this department. The Mar Mine for Cap Loading is also worthy of notice, and also the process of varnishing the interior of the cap after the loading has been pressed in, which is so arranged as to deposit a Miiall drop of varnish over the blading, thus pro tecting it from dampness. Mr John Clapham. tl?e intelligent and careful i.ead <?f the laboratory Works, is a man well skilled in his profession, and one of the kindest i>( men to those in h;s employ.

Howard, bore onward to the reali zation of those promised enjoyments, al>out forty gentlemen of the metropolis, and right well and merrily were their expectations gratified The day was bright and charming, and could not have bwen more auspicious, had it been made ex press! v for the occasion: every heart seemed to Vat in unison with its charming influence*; fun and frolic, tempered with discriminating moder ation. prevailed throughout the party; and even our venerable friend Otterback. whom every one was rejoiced to see present, looked rosy and gay as if lie were " a boy again. The dinner was superb?reck*reht?the ever-to be-remembered and never-to-be-forgotten plank shad being the principlal feature of attraction. Those who have enjoyed this finny delicacy, fresh ' from the waters of the Potomac, need not be told what it is: those who have not must let their ol i factories lx- regaled by its sweet fumes, and their palates be touched by the luscious morsel, before they can form an adequate conception of its vir tues. How some of the company on the occasion I referred to. appreciated the luxury, may be iu 1 ferred from the fact that three dishes containing two plank shad each, very suddenly and myste riously disappeared from our vicinity at table; I but the invstery was completely unravelled when we cast a furtive glance upon'the enlarged aud comprehensive rotundity of a good-natured fat friend who sat opposite, and who was going it at | the rate of 4.40 on the plank skad. After dinner we rambled along shore, and loi ! tered awhile with our old friend Burke, to wit i ness a seine haul. He has about sixty-flve hands i employed, but, in consequence of the backward I ness of the season, has not yet gotten fairly under w?v The average hauls during the past week have been about 200 shad and 100 herring each. About the close of the present week, the opera : tions at this fishing shore will, It is expected, be ? in full blast. At 5% o'clock our party left for home, reaching ! the Washington wharf about twilight. A genial | shower having, in the meantime cooled the at mosphere. ana a beauteous rainbow spanned the river. Nature thus fitly crowning the pleasures of a day which will linger among the cherished memories of those who were so fortunate as to participate in them. ???1? Easter Sismt.?1The weather yesterday, was most disagreeable, being cold, cloudy, and with some rain falling, vet the church attendance was 1 unusually large,'lie services l<eing the joyous ones ! appertaining to Easter Sunday. At the Episcopal Churches the Interest of the occasion was enhanced by the singing of the grand 'Te Deum" ?>y the choirs, and the harmo nious tones of the "Easter Anthem*' were given , forth in the Presbyterian and Lutheran Hou>es of I Worship with all the fervor and enthusiasm of I deartfelt devotion. i At the Catholic Churches the olwervances were ; of a very interesting character. At St Matthews, the sermon wasfiom the Gos ; pe*j of the day. "He is risen, He is not here." and was listened to with marked attention by the crowds of worshippers assembled. j " Haydn's Grand Third Mass"' was also per ; formed by the Choir, under the direction of Prof. ! p. \ Crouch, with assistance from the German , Society of Vocalists belonging to this city, and ! accompanied by a full orchestral force. I This mass, one of the greatest musical achieve j meats of the author, was rendered in a most effec : live manner. The exquisite bass solo, the ?? Qui Tollis." sung by Prof. Crouch, was a truly feel ing and passionate rendering of the conception of the great composer. In the '-Gloria in excelsis." Mrs. C. Young sustained the high reputation she has so long enjoyed for rapid, yet distinct, vocali zation. In the ?? Benedictus" the author seems to have combined in a most exquisite manner nil of the musical graces; the solo, sung by Miss Annie Meleher. w.is rendered with remarkable correct : ness and finish. In the closing of the part the heavy chorus. es|?ecially 'he bass aud soprano parts*, were exceedingly well sustained. '? The Agnus Dei.*' contralto solo, by M'dlle Dc Boye. ' was performed in a sweet and tasteful manner, j appropriate to the theme. The opening solo by Mrs. Young in the " Donna ! Nobis" (which is a bewitching and passionate , production) was a rich musical treat to all. The i orchestra )>erformed their work nobly. Nor must we fail to notice the remarkable abil I ity with which the organ was handled by Mr. 1 Caulfleld. The vocal choir consisted of 46 voices 1 and the oichestia of 29 pieces, besides the power ful organ. Conductor and principal Bass. P. i Nicholas Crouch ; First Soprano, Mrs. C. Young; I Leading Violin, Mr. Wagner; Organist, J. B. i Caulfleld: Ol>oe, (from Philadelphia.) Mr. A. ; W Kellner. At St Patrick's ehurch Weber's Mass was per formed in a style which reflects high credit on Mr. Williams aiul the various members of the j choir. The solos of Miss Murray. Miss Ander ! son and Mrs. Franklin were sung with taste and ! feeling. The fervid and touching simplicity of I the "Agnus Dei*' was rendered by Mrs F ina manner to challenge the admiration of the mus ical ear. The Easter Hymn, which is usually sung at the close of the service on this day, was effective and appropriate. Prof. S C. Fiartscli presided at the organ with usual ability.
