This Jocbmymks Bakkb*.?Tbe journeymen bakers of the city of Washington held a pic-nlc at Loettler's City Garden yesterday afternoon, and previous to going there marched through the principal streets, preceded by Eiputa'a new band, | who wore their handsome n'w uniforms, which looked exceedingly well. The associated bakers wore light shirts trimmed with blue, and black ^uamu urai wane aprons, winch gave them something of the appearance of a society of Free Masons. Behind tue procession two colored men led two white horses, harness* d to a light wagon, in which was an Immense loaf of bread, decorated with petite flags and wreaths of flowers, which attracted universal attention and wonder. The loaf was at least six feet in length, and of proportionate circumference, and excited great speculatton aa to the manner in which it was baked. The afternoon proved unfavorable for the bakeTS on account 01 the rain, which began to fall shortly after thev paraded, and continued through the night, but they doubtless managed to nave a lively time beneath the ample shelter of Loefller'a as] eons.

Thb Gabibaldi Festival, held at the Park, Seventh street, on Monday last, was very numerously attended by those of our citizens who sympathize with the cause of Garibaldi and hla followers in Italy.

Thi Smithsonian.?A very great number of strangers have visited the Smithsonian Museum this summer In addition to the many curlos'.tles arriving at the Smithsonian. the aquariums now exhibit subjects of considerable curiosity. The large aquarium at the south door of the Museum contains a young alligator, sent herefrom Georgia; a very fine specimen, now about four feet long, and very healthy. He is visited by numbers of visitors daily, and 1s a great curiosity to persons who have never seen any of his tribe. He is fed regularly, and,may possibly live to attain his full size He has an astonishing appetite for toads, grasshoppers. 4c., and his meals afford diversion lor his keepers and those who mav b? nwni In the small aquarium In tbe east wing of the Museum are two living specimens of an animal known us the conger, brought from tbe marshes of Georgia They are curiosities in thia latituds, aid attract much attention. They have the appearance of the common eel, with tbe exception < f two legs and feet similar to those of the lizard The name by which they are called at the Institution is cyrin, or cyrene. The Rain.?Yesterday afternoon our citizens were anticipating a refreshing shower that would coot tbe atmosphere and give opportunity for sweet and invigorating sleep at night. Light showers fell at Intervals during the day; but shower was reserved till nigbt,when, about eight 'clock, the rain descended In torrents, accompanied by heavy thunder and vivid lightning,which continued without cessation about half an hour? oversowing tbe gutters, choking the sewer traps with rubbish, and at various points covering the footwalks with mud and sand Th? aioners of Improvements were at work early tbia morning, with workmen, removing obstruction* from tbe footways, gotten and aewer traps,which were deposited by tbe torrent falling from tbe northern ridge into tbe sewer mouths on PennaylYanla avenue. Tbe rala extended a considerable diatance into tbe aurroundlng country, and will leave the groves in a very unfavorable condition for tbe pic-nic and pleasure parties intending to visit them to-day.

My first communication was simply In defense of the 41 poor apology for military/' questioning the military capacity of your correspondent to set himself up to judge in such matters, and in judging not to notice what was commendable in other corps ?f this city apart from one corps. My other object was to relieve toe Infantry of the groundless charge of il'.-feeling towards the Nationals; but as your correspondent appears so very rapid la jumping at conclusions, without cartfally scanning his ground for his information, 1 will again reply to him, and in doing so will leave our Washington military and take op the broader and more important field of the 4< supremacy" of wtll trained armies and our achievements,over which your correspondent becomes glorious, indulging In such strains as the following u When was that battle fought on land and sea In which the Americans did not show their surrtmnty ' Have not our armies tvtr been victorious'" ice ; and be concludes that 44 Another Military Man" has not read our history, or he is a sore-headed "Hingli.K ?, ' 6 nouuiUll I U.C. A? the greater part of bis communication la filled with this subject, we will open the lids of our history with a view of pointing out the continuous erroneous conclusion of your correspondent. He write* prettily, and we will tee whether there is the same absence of substance as unfortunately has marked bis other communications. Now we come to the " supremacy" of European armies over our own forces, (we use the term forces, as in time of war we necessarily employ volunteer and militia troops in addition to our small Army.) The Mexican war will not figure, as there were no European troops to fieht in it, and we take up the war of the Revolution, through which our sires fought under the most discouraging and adverse circumstances. Now, we lost in lb s war with the well-trained and disciplined troops of Britain?1. Bunker Hill; 2. Quebec; 3. Long Isl um, i. run >i Moinuion; ,*>. K randy wine; 6. firrmantown; 7. Charleston; 8. Camden. Now bow these battles were lost any American can satisfy himself by looking at our history. 1 am simply answering the assertions of your correspondent ns marked above. We will now take the war of lbl'2 with these same troops of Britain?1. Detroit; it. Ciueenitown Heights; 3 Frencbtown; 4. Burligton Bay; 5. Bladensburg. Certainly we hava lost some battles, your correspondent's assertion to the contrary notwithstanding. Now, for these defeats what constitutes our Army, our volunteers, our militia, the discredit is common, and in our victories the glory is common Your correspondent did not possibly comprehend the Idea of "Another Military .nan" In speaking of tvelltraintd, disciplintd troops, and connecting that with the "supremacy." There innni?Hiff<r?n? in numbers when we* give the French army 4l!0 000 men and place it alongside of our Army of 16,0t>0 men There is tome difference in these 410.tOO men fresh from the plains of Italy, and stationed in great military depots engaged in the training of armies, and our 16.000 men, cut up in frag, ments stationed along our frontiers keeping our Indians in place Is the opportunity allowed our Army to train for the work of armits as afforded tbe French army? Your correspondent is like many of our people who believe in the invincibility of our arms. The Wars of Independence and ISI'i do not prove this, as victory did not nerch upon our banners in every battle on land, ana 1 am under tbe opinion that our fathers and hires belonged to a hardier race and timo than wa ? *?'

In what way won id your correspondent meet such an emergency, supposing Kngland and France were to invade ns suddenly?

Then the only available troops to unite with what '"regulars" we could collect, would be the uniformed volunteer corps, who would have to act on the defensive until other forces were collected.

Remember the onward, rapid march of the French Army from Turin to the Claius of Solferlno. That ground was disputed V the professional and trained soldiers of Austria. With iis, our troop* would be fresh from the walks of the civilian.

L I Ch*ap Sympathy.?Mr. Editor: The question suggests itself to the minds of many, whether the imbble that came with a vagrant woman to the Widows' and Orphans' Home at a very late hour on last Saturday night, and knocked outrageously to get her in, (some of whom had interfered before night, not for her sake, for they said they knew nothing about the matter, but for the sake of houses of ill-fame, adjicent, where they fouivi ber getting up an excitement,) would not, if they bad as much regard lor her ns they pretended, have ofiVred her a night's lodging, instead of trying to compel the Institution to take her, when she had lived in it several weeks, although she had not been admitted as an inmate, but only taken in for one night to save her from laying out, and bad often been requested to go. and then repeat* dlv ordered away, but had staid dfllantlv and had broken in after being locked out; arid moreover wan ttnallv sent away In time to get to a good place before night, where the could have good wages and lignt work. It has been found at the Institution, as others have found on whom she bung, until she was almoat or quite driven away, that ?he will not work, although she Is well and hearty, as long as she can possibly geta living in any way without; and she has even boasted that her tongue can support her. It may be added that some who were at flrst deceived by her, Lave since changed their minds, as all fair minded persons will, on learning the truth. F A.
