He complained of the neglect of Congress to help the city of Washington in the work of educating the poor.

There are, aa you are aware, a class of men who dealre for themselves no improvement and who lack the energy to attain to it. and who are as much opposed to it In others as in the:r own ndvancement, and only through the existence of a petty jealousy characteristic of a narrow mind, which is as contemptible as it is usual with such ss your correspondent. The fact of the case is, that there is a young company just beginning to bloom out into the proportions of a full and well drilled and well bred organisation of men. who, by their energies and unremitting endeavors to have an exception to the "poor apology for military" in this city, have excited the envy of some of the more sensitive of (I suppose) a certain com pany 01 inianiry, who see clearly now, tbat to have any place among good soldier) they moat pay greater attention to their tactics, which seems quite sufficient cauae for the envious sl .ir intended only for the National Rities contained in his comma licati on. The writer of this, in company with an honorable member of Congress, arin-in-arm walked to the Monument Grounds to witness (unexpectedly) the finest exhibition of th* perfec tion and b?-aiity of Hardee's Manual, evolutions and skirmishing, that it was ever bis good fortune to witness.

A Military Mas. Washington, July 24tb, I860. A Nick Place.?Mr. Editor; Judiciary Square north of the City Hall, presents some features which are, no doubt, considered all right by the economical and tasteful official wbo operates as the Chief Magistrate of this city. Had not those features existed for a long time it might be supI po???d that the health commissioners had designated that spot as one of the depositaries for the gleanings, offkl, and garbage of the ward. As the Mayor passes through the building, and looks lrmu me winaow lacing north, no doubt be adJ mlrfi tbe beauty of those handsomely constructed wooden ornaments, that architectural pile of rubbish and cobble stones, which look* as If it were plied up for use at the second precinct of the fourth ward In election emergencies. Those handsome duck pools, and sweet-scented hog mires and | cattle licks, so conducive to health, as well as being ornamental in the position they occupy. It Is a shame that these things are allowed to remain thus The Chief of Police executes the law with regard to swine and geese going at large, it is said. This may well be disputed, when every day flocks of geese and droves of pigs are swimming and wallowing in mud and water under his nose. It is true that officers go out to the outskirts to take up this kind of property of the poor, but why not begin at the City Hall? About a year ago a bill was passed by the councils for the draining of that lot; tbe members of the boards thought it a good move) tbe then chairman of the improvement committee thoughtthe condition of the square shameful. But, although the bill passed, and was ?nnrnv?d Aiif 1.1. J r ^ , wv?. t,v mttJVl tas never thought properto have the work done. It is to he hoped that before the iron railing 1* set round the square, the pig* and geese will be driven out and the pudoles filled. They have paddled and wallowea in corporation favor long enough.
