Yorsfi Zocavid.?Last night the guests at Brown's and the National were highly gratified by the appearance of a corps of juveuife Zouaves to drill before them. Their movements were very regularly performed and excited the surprise of many old soldiers who saw them. After their drill in Brown's a collection was made to furn'sh tliem a complete nutflt. By sjwclal renuest they went to ttie avenue front, to drill for the gMtlOration of tbe lady gnests, who desired to see them Here an 'jflcienf policeman (tbe same who wanted to know \?h-re lVonu's office was when he was ins de it, sometime ago) walked up sud told tlietn lo leave, or he would take them to the. uuard bouaefor blockading the sidewalk. Another ofJ1> er. not of the police, told him hi* duty.

The bold guardsman insisted, and ilien the information was given him that if be touched one of those boys It would heat bis peril He didn't take any to the guardhouse, but beard the l?rt?e. company around express contempt for his conduct.
