Prksxntatiox or a Ba>*ir?Spreches, ttc?There was a goodly number present at the regular meeting of the Jackson Democratic Association, last evening, at their hall on Pennsylvania avenue, between Fourand-a-half and Sixth streets. After the transaction f the usual. RreJUSlWX.tNtf>ttP. son. who was in the room, to place in possession of the Association the large and magnificent banner, which had been presented to the old Jackson Democratic Association on the 14th of March, 1?57, by the Twelfth Ward Democratic Club of PhilnHplnhlii mnA arKUk ??*?* K?? J ? Ll . J *.u*vu UHU UCCU j/IBCCU IU UII (Mr Robinson's) hand* for preservation. The Chair stated that there was no immediate business before the Association, and he should be pleased to receive this valuable gift then, if it be the pleasure of Mr. Robinson. The banner was then brought in, and placed near the Chair's table, when Mr. Robinson came forward and spoke as follows: SPEECH OF XI. &OBl?tSO!Y. Fellow-citliens: This banner I conceive myself to have been the custodian of for the last four year*. 1 was made tbe prominent individual through whose hands it was brought to the city, to be presentM by Senator Bialer to tbs Jackson Democratic Association. Under present circumstances, it Is necessary that it should be placed in the hands of those who are true and faithful to the representative element of the distinguished name which itbears [Applause ] Believing sincerely, dim ironi me uouoin oi my heart, that those gentlemen who have responded to the nomination of Mr Breckinridge, as set upon great, h'gh, and constitutional provision, are the true representatives of the old Jackson Democratic Association, 1 therefore entrust it to your keepings [Applause j 1 believe as firmly as 1 believe I am standing In your presence, that if the illustrious sage of the Hermitage were still alive, and in the full vigor of bis life, that he would be with that portion cf our countrymen which is for an equality of the States [Applause ] I regret, as much as any one possibly could, the schisms which have taken place in this great party, which has ruled so successfully for su?h a length of time the internal and foreign afftirs of this glorloui and happy Government. But such thlrnr* mn?i >>- I mutation* of life, with partita as well as individuals. And whether you are successful or not In this campaign, this banner should be a nucleus arouud which again the good old party can rally with pure hands and honest hearts. [Applause.] 1 have always been, through the whole course of my life, warm and ardent in all my attachments. and 1 know that sometimes my warmth of character leads me to little rash nets, but all my feelings and sentiments ar? bas?d upon a great cardinal principle?a love of my country, her honor, her glorv, and her prosperity [Applause ] And believing as I do, firmly and sincerely, that the representative element which assembled In Baltimore and nominated Mr. Breckinridge reflects the true, constitutional, genuine and honest sentiments of the democratic party, as they were Interpreted by the illustrious Jetterson, and conserved and brought Into full vigor by Madison and Jackson, and also that this association is the true representative type of that great element of the great democratic party, I, therefore, as a democrat, as a man who has never faltered from ItaM down to the present day,who has never supported or cast a vote for any other than one who was the representative of the great element of this Gov ernment, I place It In your banda, hoping that, whether we are aucceMful or not. It will be a tropliy In the archivesof our political history; and tbat It will be placed In the haoda of tboae who will preserve It and keep it until It may be meful la after time 1 hope that wben tbia aaaociation, as It represents by name the Jackaon Aaaociatiou, If It alionld diasoive, this banner Should be again placed In the kands of Mr. McNerhany, to preserve it; or if the aaaociation malntalna its preaent organization. I hope It will keep and preserve It. [Applause ] The preaident of the aaaociation (Dr. Boyle) then replied, In the following befitting term*: THI fKESIDKJIT'8 KMroSHK. In the name and in behalf of the Jackson Democratic Aaaociation, over which 1 have the honor to pres'rte, I receive at the handa of my eloquent friend tbia beautiful banner, presented by the Twelfth Ward Democratic Clnb of Philadelphia r?r* 1t"r ~ o 11 iiu ui i'i aibu. i.ot) uj wmcn D6 Has been the custodian ever aince. Cold indeed would be the heart and dead the sensibilities that would not respond to a testimonial like thia, so chaste and elegant In design, but above all telling us in every wave of Its proud folds that our efforts In behalf of our great cause? the cause of our common country?are not without the sympathy of our friends, and especially the democracy of the old association [Applause ] Dear are such notes *f encouragement to men engaged in an earnest struggle. They nerve the ariu, invigorate the mind, stir the heart, and spur them on to renewed and incrtastd exertion. Allow me. then, in the name of the Association to thank you r>r thia beautiful banner, and assure you that it will lie chtrisbt-d and protected by e>ch member of the Jackson Democratic Association. And I earnestly hope and firmly believe mat ai no distant aay it will wave lu triumph over our head*, not merely for the success of our principles, though they be immutable as truth lself; not merely for the triumph of the true democratic party though It li the only party that has any just claim* to the suffrages of the patriot; nor yet because of the elevation of our gallant standard-bearers, Breckinridge and Lane, to the higheat offices of the nation?the proudest positions in the world; but that our beloved country, undismayed by the black cloud that loomed so fearfully on itfroqp the North, unseduced by the doc? trine of squatter sovereignty, looking smilingly with ita Januaface both North and ?outh, Is saved, at least for a period, from discord and anarchy, dismemberment ana ruin. [Applause ] This Interesting ceremony oleing concluded, eloquent and able spec ches were made by the Hon Johu M. Landrum, of La , and Mr. R. Crawford, of Pa Kach of the speakers stated that the Breckln-s -i r ? ** * * riugc umuuic bvuiimucc ui new * or* uniy waited for overturn from the Douglas-Bell-Everett party to unite in the support of the joint electoral ticket. They were sure that such would result in the election of either Mr. Breckinridge by the House or Mr Lane by the Senate. The Breckinridge party intended to make the Douglas-Bell ticket the instrument by which they would again ride into power. The speakers were loudly applauded. A* Ominocs Notice ?This morning a colored man who lives in the same quarters with white persons, found upon his door the following notice, which he thought sufficiently alarming to place la the bands of the police.

Riot at thi Pah*.?Yesterday afternoon a I most disgraceful scene occurred at the Park, 1 where the Washington Rifle* were enjoying a j Sic nic. After a long search we have failed to ] iscover any one who can give a definite account of its origin, and the most plausible witne?s we have consulted says it began imperceptibly in a plus of whisky, and grew suddenly Into a gt-neral row between the troops and citizens who were there. One young inm named Williams was badly cut on the bead and face with a sword bayonet, and others were beaten and bruised Officer Suit, who, with Guardsman Edmonson, was detailed to preserve the p?*ac?, made an arrest, and while taking his prisoner away was at- i tacked, and slightly wounded with a sword. He j let go his first prisoner to arrest the assailant, and j was set upon oy a number with bayonets. &c.. and he could not secure bis prisoner. Suit and Edmonson, it is said, called for the aid of the officers of tbe corps in securing the man, but no aid was afforded them. Several persons were hurt during tbe riot, whose name* are not given, but who will probably make themselves known when the arrests are made of the parties who can be Identified. A gentleman who saw tbe afffclr noticed particularly the men who were most active in it, with the intention of testifying at the proper time. He says it was the most outrageous scene be ever witnessed. Suit and his partner tried hard to restore peace and arrest the guilty, but the excitement was too great to effect anything in such a crowd. He took tbe right course - marked the principals and will secure their arrest. Violent Octkagk.?We hnr that on Thursday, as the wagon of Mr. Joahua Pelrce was on its return from our market, sometime between one and two o'clock, at about a quarter of a mfle noith of the Columbian College, it was attacked by three young men who had been seen loitering about awhile previous. Jerry, Mr. P.'s marketman, well known to many of our citizens as very civil and orderly, was forced from the wagon, knocked down, and very severely beaten, recel vi ng thev were fortunately interrupted by the approach of Mr. Dennison in blswauon. As heturned into the lane they in great haste jumped over a high picket fence and fled through a corntMd. leaving the man in a state of insensibility on the ground. We understand that a suitable reward Is offered for the apprehension of the perpetrators of this outrage, strong suspicions are nad that it was done by persons who have been sometime under the watch of our police as living by plunder about our city. Accident to Mrs. L. W. Bates, in Baltimore ?The Sun of this morning says: 41 Yesterday afternoon a Dainful accident Mr* Hate*. wife of the Rev. Mr. Batea, No 10 Aisquith street.

The Union Company was in no condition to render efficient service, as they stand in need of m?ny things to make their apparatus available in case of Ore. But the Franklin Company did turn out, and bv their active use of their nose and suction saved several families from b*ing turned into the streets, as but for them the fire would certainly have spread The I'nion Company does not lack willingness and ability, but the means to work with. tt> v....w o ?> ? - a ii a il A 1 ilMAL IX I V la RS O.l faradk ? i DSl plrit?d and superior drilled corps of our city, tlie National Rifles, Capt Schai-ffer, were on parade yesterday afternoon In their neat fatigue uniform, accompanied by the Marine Band There were forty-threeouton this occasion; and as they moved along our principal streets they attracted great attention, and frequently elicited the applause of the crowd surrounding them by the admirable skill with Which they went through the various evolutions peculiar to'their system of drill.

Shoxt Watir for a Few Hours.?In consequence of a break in the twelve-inch main in the vicinity of the reservoir above Georgetown, the water supply Is temporarily cut off from the two cities. \V e learn tnat this Inconvenience will probably cease this sfternoon, and that tbe flow of water may probably be reestablished some time betwesn three and six o:clock Those wbo bave ! boilers connected with water-mains must take | proper precautions to guard against accidents.
