The Anti-Know Nothings of the Seventh Ward rallied last night in numbers?despite the mud?at their rendezvous, corner of Maryland av enue and Seventh street. Esputa's cornet band opened the programme with a beautiful composition of Esputa's owu? "The Katie Stelle Polka." Robert Ould. Esq., of Georgetown, was called to the stand, and he proceeded with characteristic vigor and no little humor to rap Know-Nothing ism over the knuckles for its sins and blunders, past and present. In reference to the impudent {?retensioo of exclusive Americanism put forth by he Know Nothings he claimed that the only true American party in this country is that which has jjiven to us the ric h pastures of Texas ; the gold en sands of California; the undisputed possession of the broad extent of territory which reaches from the shores of the Atlantic to the Pacific; and has spread the fame of our national banner over the whole world Mr. Ould, in conclusion, urged the voters of ^he Seventh Ward to com * out in their strength on Monday next, and put the finishing sod on the grave of Know Nothinglsni. Mr J amps F Haliday then took the stand, and In nome animated remarks urged the duty of all good citizens to crush forever the discordant in fluences which for three years past have been the fruitful cause of political and personal discord. He did not wish to say anything to disparage the gentlemen who had been chosen by the opposite party to carry on the business of the city, but they had been tried and found wanting, and the affairs of the Corporation were in a situation de manding an immediate and efiective change of policy Mr H A. Cook, of Mississippi, then took the stand, and Sam*' got another mauling in his hands, especially in view of that worthy s man agement of the National Monument. He was succeeded by Major Flood, who in the courseof his remarks repelled, with no littlevigor and indignation, the charge made against him of being a Mormon, and similar malicious accusa tions. E B. Robinson. Esq , then came foiward and administered a scorching rebuke to tbe unman nerly opponents of the meeting who had under taken to interrupt it in its discussion of public principle* I'pon the conclusion of Mr. Robinson's remarks the meeting adjourned In the best of spirits for the election of Monday. Rivee Matters ?The gilling operations are nearly all suspended for the season. The total S?ie ^-ripts of fish at the steamboat wharf were three of shad, brought up by the Thos. Collver.
