Mr. D Hepburn, builder, has put up. on Mary land avenue. between Ninth and Tenth streets, Island, this Spring, two large three-story bricks, both of which have been rented already. Mr. T. H. Barron, builder, is erecting for Mrs. Kali, ou the site of the former residence of Mr. Pairo, on Boundary street, a large addition to the main house. The enlargement embraces, raising of the old walU of the main wing and an addi tion to tb? rear, giving the form of an L to the whole structure. Mr. Kickhneffer, of the firm of Riggs ft Co., is building a large private residence in the First W?|*. which will call for an expenditure of some 9'.5,000, the construction of which is under the superintendence of Messrs. fvdmuason ft Plant, builders. On Pennsylvania avenue, between Third and J^our-and-a-half streets, the property which was purchased last year by 8. Fowler, for S?*,ti00. is ueing improved.

These, except they are to have mastic fronts, are to be completed in a similar manner lo the dwelling* pi Messrs. Berret and Arnold. Rivkr News.?The water ha* fallen very con siderably since yesterday. The current is less rapid, and things look more favorable with re: pect to the winding up of the fishing operations along the shores Yesterday evening, as the steam tug Wide Awake was towing a canal boat loaded w it h lime stone from th*- Georgetown channel dowu through the western draw of the Long Bridge she inadea lurch, and sent the lime stone boat one side, when she ran foul of one of the piers of the bridge and smashed up. She sunk immediately,and is now at the bottom of the channel in soine *21 feet of water. The owners intend to bring suit against the Captain of the Wide Awake, for damage* for | a Hedged carelessness* on his part.

Yesterday, at the Sveamore Landings, below Holland's Point, Mr. Clark caught l.*W shad at one haul. The general impression this morning i* that to diy will be tbe best tishing day of the season; the water is just right?so say the old hands?for large hauls The south breeze is collecting the fish to gether. and those who have not cut out anticipate a brisk business inconsequence. We shall see. At Alexandria this looming shad were selling at Sll and <12. and hefting at $10.50. Many ves sels arrived yesterday, but brought few fish. Exccnsio* to Moist Veb*ox.?^The mem bers of the National Musical Convention, many of whom are from distant States, determined, be fore returning to their respective homes, after the session of the Convention was concluded, to visit Mount \ ernon: and their tripyesteiday will long be remembered with unmiugled satisfaction bv ail who were able to join the party. The day was bright and i<eawtiful. with just breeze enough to prevent the heat of the sun from being oppres sive, and as some of the gentlemen had sent a |>iano-forte on Iwjard the Thomas Collyer. for the occasion, and others took their instruments with them, there was no lack of music, l>oth vocal and instrumental. We were especially pleased with some of the pieces for piano, violin and flute, which were performed in a very beautiful man ner. On account of the tide it was deemed best t<> go down to the White House Pavilion before stopping at Mount Vernon; and while there. after several of the ladies and gentlemen had enjoyed some healthful exercise in the bowling alley, din ner was served, and then the party repaired airain on board the boat. b On arriving at Mount Varnon they gathered aronnd the sacred spot where repose the mortal remains of the ??

Among the new contributions to this excellent f ollection of works of art we notice two pictures . *?f great merit?one of them by Johnson of this city, the portrait of a child, full length, in pastile, a most exfluisite production, radiant with nature, beauty and life ; the other is a painting in oil. bv W.

This is one of Mr. Washington's best pictures, and thouglf evidently having been painted rapidlv. g:ve? evidence of the artist's superior genius and rapid progress. It is a work of great merit. We also notice among the recent contributions, several large sixe miniatures on ivory, by H B Hounetheau. of Charleston. 8. C. ' These are aioong tbe best miniatures we have seen: one of ?fa?tn is a half length likeness of Napoleon, or rather Gen Bouneparte. |t is from a picture, it is presumed. painted about the time of his cam paign in Egypt.

The Concert or thi Union Choie Associa tion, last night, supported by nucha powerful auxiliary as the National Musical Association, was a rar? musical treat, indeed. The opening chorus, " Let every heart rejoice and sing." was a good commencement, and by its powerful crash of song afforded a suitable introduction to the deliciously-rendered quartette, "Softly, lightly, sweetly sing,'' by Messrs. Irving. Glenroy, Wight and Manson. 44 Our native song," by Mr. Root, was clamorously encored, but Mr. R.. with a touch of that quiet humor by which he 1s dis tinguished, admonished the audience that, the programme being a long one, any repetition of pieces would compel an omission of some of the good things set down for performance. Mr. R. Han taken occasion, more than once during hi* stay, to rebuke, in a good-humored way, the senseless habit of demanding a repetition of almost every piece as performed, for which he deserves the hearty thanks of a long-suffering community. The solo 44 How lovely IsZion." was well ren dered by Miss F. Gurley, as was 44 Salut a la France' by Miss T. A. Daniels. Then followed one of the gems of the evening, '-There's music in the air,*' a quartette, sung in admirable har mony by Messrs. Irving, Dawson, Loo mis and Perkins. Next came the 44 Una voce poca fa," sung by Miss Beach, a young lady of much mu sical promise, and the development of whoae talent we watch with interest, as exhibited from time to time. Mr. J. Hodgson then gave 44The White 8quall" with fine effect. The succeeding chorus, 44 How beautiful arc the mountains," was sting with good harmony and time. The song 44 The wild flowers soon will shed their bloom" ' was given by Miss Hall, a young lady possessing a voice of great natural richness. Mr Root then announced a New England home song, 44 Never forget the dear ones," which was sung by Messrs Root, T. E. Perkins and G. B. Loomis with a feeling and taste that rendered an encore inevitable. The delight and surprise of the audience would doubtless have been height ened had it been aware that this delicious har mony was composed by Mr. Root only yesterday afternoon, while on the trip to Mount Vernon, and was sung without rehearsal. The jubilate chorus and semi-chorus which came next, was as a whole the beat executed piece of the evening. The duet from Norma, sung by Mis* Daniels, was an acceptable performance of an arduous un dertaking. The chorus and echo u Light-hearted are we," went off brilliantly, and the viecho" (composed of two ladies and two gentlemen) was loudly applauded on its return to the room 44 The Happy Muleteer" was pleasingly rendeied by Miss L J. Daniels, though badly adapted to her soprano voice Miss Hall, a young lady of Baltimore, sang ?? who'll have me," and the au dience one and all insisted on "having her"? sing it again ! The performances ended with the closing por tion of Root's cantata of 44 The Haymakers," and in this was particularly noticeable the pure, rich .soprano of Miss Anna King. Sir. Boot then made a handsome valedictory, and the Convention finally broke up. and a general h-md-shakin^ and leave-taking ensued The Assoriation will meet next on the first Tuesday in May, 1858.

Lxtensive Robbeet.?Yesterday afternoon. a room in Browns' Hotel, occupied by Mr. /. N. Aronson. of New York, was entered by thieves, and twenty-five gold watches, the lowest in value 850. the rest ranging from that to ?200; sixty gold chains, average value 820, and other articles of jewelry, the whole amounting to 82,.300 or S3,00<> in value, were stolen. Th<* owner had been on a tour through the South, for the purpose of disposing of a stock val ued at near 850,000, and was on his return with the goods he had not sold. The information was immediately given to the clerk, who, with all the aid he coulci obtain, com menced a search for the goods, but up to this wri ting no certain trace of them had been discov C It is probable that this gentleman was followed by hawks from his starting in New York, to his arrival in Washington. No blame can attach to the proprietors of the hotel, wh? have done all they possibly could to ferret out the perpetrators of the robbery. ? The National Hotel Disease.?The New York Herald thinks that the Academy of Medi cine of that city, in its discussion the other eve ning '? gave the quietus to the enormous humbug that the late National Hotel disease at Washing ton was the result of a dastardlv attempt to poison Mr. Buchanan The stinking sewers, venting their deadly exhalation into znd all over the house, will, or ought to, account for the malady and solve the mystery to the satisfaction of all sensible people. That any human being could entertain such a diabolical and venomous hatred of Mr Buchanan as to risk his death by poison, involving the lives of hundreds of unoflending people?men, women and children?passes all bounds of credulity We have no doubt that Mr. Buchanan, in hl> election as President, and since, has had fewer enemies and more universally the good wishes of all paities and all sorts of men, than aiiy other President since the time of Mon roe." Permits ?Circumstances, we hear?probably the abuse of privileges granted, by some colored person., without respect for themselves?have re sulted in orders to the police to enforce the law requiring every such person to be provided with a pa?* if out after 10 p. in., even when attending bails, parties, fairs, concerts.

The new Dome Is beginning to assume quite an appearance of substantial beauty. The heavy iron bracket* which form the base, on which the lofty superstructure will rest, to the number of 74, are Workmen are engaged at the new wings, in setting the tiling in the principal corridors Some of this tiling Is of superb finish, and is well worth the attention of the visitor. The design* of the tiling are various, and of great artistic baauty. The beautiful iron gallery fronts are far ad vanced towards completion. The excavations for the foundation of the corri dors to connect the two wings are completed, and the foundations are being rapidly laid. .

Editor Star : I enjoyed the happy, delightful, and intellectual musical meeting Thursday night at the Academy of Music, corner of Eleventh st. and Pennsylvania avenue, conducted by Professor F. N. Crouch. The opening lecture, delivered by the Profrssor, was most happy, ana delivered in a manner worthy of all praise ; lieinp upon the rise, progress and science of Mnsir. The trnth hil remarks a* reaper ts the too often met with ap probation of "negro melodies," we hope will have their due elfect. The bill brought forth some most beautiful voices, two, if not more, of the ladies 'possessing excellent baritones. The selections were excellent, and we find it difficult to make distinction. but a few gems we will mention : '-The Gentle Lark," Ac.; Duett uTeach the Nightingale," ' The Widow to her Child," '?The \Vedding Bells," ''Una voce poco fa." The manner in which the young lady rendered this trial song, is deserving of all praise. Mr. Jones' bass song of the ' Sexton," was excellent. In fact all were good, and*well carried through. Less merriment t>y some of the softer sex present on this occasion would have lieen in better taste. Wishing all success to the Professor's enterprise, I remain Yours, respectfully, B. May 7th, 1857. ?? Washington to have a GymsAStc*.?We notice among the new features in the way of city improvements, a Gymnasium, which is being es tablished in the buildings of Messrs. Haslup & Wecden, corner of Ninth street and Louisiana avenue, by Prof. L. W. Shattuck, of New York. Mr. S. has rented the upper story of the building known as Yernon Hall, which he is fitting up for the above purpose. The manufacture of the necessary apparatus for the manly exercise?such as parallel bars, horizontal ladders, spring boards, f ulling W? i^ht', etc.?are being ui n? by Messrs. lunt X Douophaii, and reflect nigh credit on the skill of those gentlemen. Prof. S. intends soon to establish in the northern poition of our city a similar institution for ladies, to be nnder the di rection of Mrs. Shattuck. Something of this kind has been needed for a long time in our city, and, if conducted properly, will l>e of infinite service to clerks, and people of sedentary habits gener ally.

Munder's late May Festival, though upon a most disagreeable night, was a miracle of bril liancy ; what it will prove on tnis occasion, if the night be fair, can well be imagined. Metropolitan Mechanics1 Institute ?TLe building committee met last night in the Mayor's office, at the City Hall, and the matterof a build ing site was freely discussed, the committee having the advantage of examining the proposed Centre Market plans deposited in that office. \ sub-committee of four, who meet Monday ni"ht next, was appointed to examine the plans fully and report to the general committee on Tuesday night. Thus far the Corporation has taken no steps in the matter, the subject being discussed only the institute committee. Robbery.?On Thursday morning, as a lady from the country was standing in front of the auc tion stand, at the corner of 9th street and Pennsyl vania avenue, she had her pocket picked by some adroit thief, of her porte inonnaie, which con tained Sl?50 in cash, and a note of hand for SOW A colored man. who stood by, was sus pected of the theft, and accordingly an officer was ] called, who arrested him, and took him to the guardhouse. Whether he had taken thepoite monnaie or not, could not be ascertained, but on searching his person nothing was found to justify his detention, and he was accordingly discharged. The Much anics' Fire Company of Louisville, Ky., is coming to pay the Washington tlremen a visit. The company is expected by the latter part of the present month ; while here they will be the guests of the Columbia boys, and that is sufficient guaranty that their stay will be a pleasant one. Ordway's Eolians have yielded to the pres sure of public demand, and will give one more concert (to-night) prior to their departure for the West The merits of the company is established, and the announcement that they are to perform is suf ficient to fill the house.
