H or ?About twelve o'clock last night a party of f*.ur persons went to the Vulcan House, oil Pennsylvania avenue, near Sixth street, and be haved Sn a very disorderly manner, evidently trying to create a riot. The proprietor requested them to leave, but they refused and comment ed a political discussion.'but failing to draw the company into that, one of th?'in ottered to wrestle with any man in the room, ??coll ir and elbow."' No one accepted th?- challenge. I)ne went to the bar and struck at the barkeeper with a cane, when Air Joseph Davidson took the cane from him and remonstrated against his behavior, lie ? hen struck Mr. Davidson in the mouth, and Mr. I), turned upon and punished him severely with ? he cane A general fight was the result; two of the rioters ran off', and two, Wm Hughes and Michael Jones staid and were awfiil'y h aten , Jones so badly that this morning lie was entirely blind Hughes and Jones were arrested by watchmen Donaldson and Donnelly, and Mr Davidson also went with the officers to the guaid house. After a hearing this morning Justice Clarkdis missed Mr Davidson and commitUd Hughes ami Jones to jail for Court. Ckmrk M\aatr ?The heavy rain yesle da. prevented the attendance of many country deal ers, but the hucksters presented n very good s ipply at their stands in 'he slod* A fine lot < f pork was offered at the M^ales, and poultry was offered in tbe sheds and fom I lie wagons. The prices were tbe same as on Saturday last. Good ofder prevailed throughout the liia.ket during the hours of sale Co uat or Claims Yfstrrpay?Mr. Ely re sumed and concluded the argument for tbe claim ant in the case of Mary W. Thompson, and the case was submitted Mr Blair ir?omed th*- argument in the case of lohn 1. Wirt, and on concluding, the Court ad journed. Thi Theatbk ?The new Washington theatre of Messrs. Stuart and Bourclcault has been open sufficiently long to admit of forming a fair judg-; ment not only of Its merits, but its prospect* It is sufficiently large for the accommodation gen erally of our play-goers with comfort and conve nience, and yet not so large a* that perhaps a hundred dollars per night must be thrown away on it, on account of it* too greit size, as wa.* the case with the late National. On Saturday night last the audience numbered rerhaps nine hun dred, all of whoni were comfortably and agree ably situated Each succeeding night show* progress made in the work of its appropriate em bellishment and Unish Last night, for instance, we noticed the first appearance of the beautiful drop curtain promised, which as a work of art is a gem rarely seen in such a position. The w?r* of embellishing the front or the dress circle and lighting it, as well as the proscenium, has been | pushed on with rapidity of late, and in capital taste. The vaudeville company, as well as the ballet dancers, have fairly won their way in the good opinion of the Washington public. Miss Polly Marshall and Dawson l^ive already become prime favorites herej they are >?oth capital performers, and uever fail to give entire satisfaction. Miss Marshall is unsurpassed in genteel and eccentric rotnedy in this country, while Mr. Dawson as an eccentric and low comedian has not had his equal in this city since the days of the elder Jef ferson. His re? arkable discrimination and just appreciation of tlie difference between genuine wit, and buffoonery* and the care he manifests in eschewing the latter, while he makes the most of the cnjsicity of his parts for the exhibition of the former, mark him for a cultivated gentleman, capable, at all times, of appreciating the fact that here, in proportion to the number of his au dience*, he plays before more persons who go to the Theatre for an intellectual treat, than in any other American citv. We cannot in justice omit to add that the stage management is fii more perfect than anything of the sort we have had in Washington since the days of Wood and Warren?which not a few of the Star's readers will remember with pleasure, indued. Every person appearing upon the atage of this establishment is neat, and careful in the rendition not only of his and her " business," but in entirely appropriate costume and appearance, which, here, adds greatly to the popularity of so ;h entertainments. The ballet troupe, too, continue nightly to win 'more and more app'ause. TJjough the stage is too *m.ill to permit such n danseuse at> Rolla to Ik* seen to gieatest advantage, her illimitable grace and agility have fairly captivated ail ; and her movements, directed to please a cultivated audience, never fail to be rewatded with a gen eral enthusiastic appreciation. In her last dance of last evening?the "Carnival of Venice "?her exquisite poses and movement* fairly carried the house by storm, fom its commencement to the i nd?as on the Saturday night before, when she tlrst appeared in it in the Federal Metropolis. Her corps of assistants, too. win such praise as was never bestowed heie before upon the chorus and assistants of a ballet troupe. Though Paul Brillant is confessedly the best male dancer now in this country, he never appeared t> such ad vantage as when surrounded bv the nimble, ele gant and graceful troupe of fairy forms who al ternately float and fly around him now. as it were. On the whole, the enterprise may already be written down a triumphant succe-? To-night, as the bill shows, a new vaudeville, a* well n* a new ballet, will be peifpriutd. ?rrRr>n Cocitr?Monday?Thos.

It Thi Columbia Lodge Festival.?Odd Fel '?Ws Bill was crammed 1 ist night, despite the weather, and had the day been fine, the manager* would have been put to their wits' end to accom modate a tenth part of their guest!* As ft wax, it required the most economical packing on the paa of these active and ubiquitous gentleman to find for the rush of visitors. However, ev*' was ill such capttal humor that it was ni>t difficult to induce them to accommodate * ."Itf 1 c'rr"tnstances; and from the i?ct that the crowd was not appreciably dimin ished at four o'clock this morning. It may well be supposed that the enjoyment of the occasion a "ood deal ahead of the discomforts. Next nme, though, that Columbia Lodge gives a Fes tival. we advise them to roof in Judiciary Square, on the mall; for no single room in th? eitv has ac commodation for all who are disposed to attend. Excellent addresses we made by the Rev J C Granberry and the Hon. Reulwu K. Fen ton, of ?New York. Mr. Oranlterry, after reciting the good works of the order, which, though not him self h member, he hail Witnessed, proceeded to define the relationship sustained by Christianity to such orders as these, and demonstrated con clusively that there is 110 possible conflict or rivalry between Christianity and Odd Fellow ship. but that the latter receiv.s its light from the former as does the earth from the glorious orb of day. Mr bis address, also urged that Odd F ellowship, which, in the fullness of time, will fiaternize all mankind, is based upon the Bible, and that its morality is that of the Bible. After the addresses, the eighteen orphan chil dren under the care of Columbia l.odge were made very happy by the reception of various * 1 ;w>0^s) jewelry, Ac., and the presentation or which was madeb? Grand Master J. R Piper. The programme embraced a variety of other in teresting particulars. There was some excellent vocal music by an amateur quartette party, ac companied by Prof. Foertseh upon one of Ellis's grand pianos; Withers' liand contributed their quota of enlivening instrumental music; and the committee occupied themselves during the in terstices of the performance iu furnishing a pro fuse and excellent supply of refreshments, one item of which deserves special notice, viz the truly delicious Ice cream furnished bv Ridenour Dancing was entered upon after the other ex.-r e m*. and was kept up with undiminished zest tut the cock crew this morning. Altogether this I-esfivil was one of the most truly enjoyable aflairs of the sort ever experienced in Wasltiii" ton. _____ ^ As*aclt Fih'ng Pistols?George Fd wards and Wm Delaway were arrested to-day for a general assault and tiring of pistols a' Simpson's Restaurant this morning.
