Several bindings were unroofed, tre?s. signs end fences Mr*re blown down, tbe flags along the avenue whi pped Into ribbons, and the flag recently hoisted on the National Monument was torn to pieces by tbe wind. All tbe efforts of H D. Morgan, the waicnrain, and assistants, could not prevent the accldeat, tbe halyards having parted si tbt flag wan being lowered, and it was thus left to tbe int-rey of tbe elements Tbe Society have thus redeemed their pledge to hoist the Star Spangled banner on the Monument, and regret exceedingly that an unavoidable accident hat caused tbe experiment to be so brief and unsuccessful. It was almost a miracle that the fire which broke out on Seventh street did no further damage than it did, as it was in a densely settled locality, and the gale was at its hight. The telegraph wires were seriously atfected bv the gale, and Co'iifiiunication with tbe South was aim est entirely suspended.

H. Sbre?ea, In 5eTent* street, between H and I atreet* Tbe high wind then blowing caused tbe flamea to anread with great rapidity, and in a few minutes the entire building waa on fire A large number of boraea and carriage* were to the atable at the time, and were at once removed oat of barm'a way. All tbe fire compantea ware aoon on tbe apot, but their united effurta were required to keep tbe flamea from apr>-ading to tbe contlguoua building a, and in a brief pace the stable, mtp tbe walla, waa reduced to aahea. Tbia iatbe third time Mr Shrevea atable has l>een dtatroyed by Bre^within tbe laat ten years The paint shop of Mr. John A norland and tbe framv carriage bouse attached to tbe (table of Mr. Howard. ndjolnlMg, were torn down by the Hook and Ladder Company.which preven'ed in a great measure the spread of tbe tire to the adjacent honsfs. Mr. P. T hyson bad a considerable lot of general stores stowed awiy in Mr. Howard's carriage house, which wers saved. The amount of propertydmroyed is $4,000,covered, however, by an Insurance. The fire at Shreves' stable was the work of an Incendiary, and it is suspected that a colored boy who was accused of being concerned with the former destruction of Mr Sbrevet' stables, is the pnrty It will be remembered that on the former occasion one of tbe colored boys was convicted and s^nt to the penitentiary, and the other acquitted Tbe suspicion now recta on this one, wno ii i? rumored was seen coining out of the stable just before tjje fire wss discovered. m Mb Ed t?i : ? Last night, at the large fire on Seventh street, there was no water thrown on the fire until the flame* bad nearly consumed the bouse, though the Potomac prater runs in front, in rear, and to the "right and left" of It. Why was this? t will tell you. Over a year ago, the City Councils pasfd a law to erect fire-plugs on Seventh tr-'et and Pennsylvania avenue, and this law has not been carrIM out because the Water Registrar and Purveyor are at loggerheads. Those official!- wilh th? MtifAf ?? J ? ?v/ y VI , ui t kU WC lUCUtCU iur tfce treat losses which have occurred at the fires on Pennsylvania avenue and Seventh street. We, the citizens and tax-pavers, have to suffer from tbe quarrels of those officials. There has been great neglect on the part of the city officials in reaping tbe benefits of the abundance of water at our dispcul. Tbe firemen got water from plugs over a square from the fire, and there was not enough hose to any one of tbe companies to reach the front of the fire. If we had one or two steam ( Are engines we could put a more speedy stop to tbe tirts. but tbe committee on fire engines in the lower board of the Council, generally bury such n>eful bills in the "tomb of the Capulets," or jump down on them like a "duck on a June oug." or "snap them up wus than a snappen tur m ii mku umciuiciDDOt oe oi more benefit to tbe city than they are, we should put tome there who will be. Fourth Ward. Valc* or Rial Fstatk iw Waihitoios.? In tbe*e piping bard times, when every property-bolder In Washington feels that bis little bouse and lot would not bring half Its value under the hammer, it Is proper toVxhibit the other aide of the question. YesUrday Messrs "Cleary & Green sold at auction, under a decree of the Circuit Court, a house and lot situated on Massachusetts avenue, between Fourth and Fifth it*., for f6T5. Tbe assessed value of the property on the books of the Corporation, under tbe late high assessment, is 9096?only $-20 higher than wliat it sold for to satisfy a court judgment. This is the ?,.t ?i ?i??? - - u ? i?iicu me vi reai estate in iuis city since tbe Presidential election. Theat&k ?Perhaps the most flkclnatlng novel of the last live years la the French tale entitled "Tee Romance of a Poor Young Man." Of course the play-wright* snapped eagerly at It, and the graphic story w*s B|>eedlly dramatized and put on the stage, where it met with an extraordinary success, running every night for a wbole season, we believe To-night this play will be brought out at the Theater, with Mr. 8;>thern as "Maxime," the hero of the story Uelng his benefit night, it Is to be presumed tbat toe produces the choicest selection of his rrjitrioir*, and the public may look for a tiue entertainment Indeed. Tax Casal ?Tbe canal was dry this morning. and tbe boats which have been lying at the wharvn since tbe cloae of the trading season, were fast frozen In the mud This Is no unusual circumstance, for after every long continued gale from the northwest tbe water in the canal is low; but this morning the bottom was more apparent than at any time this season.

Bates & Biothkr, ?oap and candle manufacturers, G street, were relieved of half a dozen boxes of candles last night. They were worth ab-nit ?25. and were taken from the upper story and let down from the porch by some very careless thief, who left a few odd candles on bis track through the yard as be traveled towards the rear fence.

The Peace Co.xgkbss after their vlstt to the President yesterday, returned to Willarda', and siibft-qnentlv proceeded In a body to the Capitol. The strictest precautions are taken to keep the doing* of the Convention from the public eye; the reason assigned for such a course being to prevent outside pressure, particularly from the otker Congress which meets at the other end of Pennsylvania avenue. Giinatiow* College ?The rumors with regard to the Georgetown College are all <>f the most fabulous character. A very few Southern students have been withdrawn oy their parents and uuardlana, whose fears f jr the peace of Wash* Ington ou the 4th of March, as laid down in the programme of the Richruona Enquirer, had been excited.
