Among other beautiful flag* and itanners Hunt; out in honor of the day. we note one of Seventh street, befwcen G and H, bearing on one side the inscription, ?'God save the Union,'* and on the other, " We are for the Union " The large flag suspended across the avenue at Simpson's restaurant, and bearing the Inscription "The Union, Now and Forever,'1 attracted much attention The square below this was liberally sprinkled with flags; and, Indeed, theavenue was gay from one end to the other with the Stars and Stripes. FLAG FRESENTATIOHS. There were several flag presentations daring the day, Including that oy Messrs. Wall A. Stephens to the Infantry Battalion. POLICI ARRANGEMENT*.

It was an tmpoa stbiilty, almost. when inarching by the flank, to break Intocolnmn of companies, or even platoon*, on account of tbe carriages, carta, wagons, dra vs. Ac , which were crowded Into the street. The police should bare taken care that tbe streets were clear of ail sack Impedimenta on tbe line of march. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS All tbe public offices. banks, and Northern market were closed. Tbe Navy Yard was open for such workmen as did not wish to lose time. A feature of the day was the peripatetic boy- I venders of " New Union Songs," aa large lettered placarda opon their breasts announced. By the market-bouse, the City Hall, and other points, the street-sellers of pig's feet, gingerbread, and other holiday luxuries, were out with their tables, and were surrounded by crowds, especially of country folks, wbo thus satisfied hunger at a cheap rate. THE SALUTES. At 3 o'clock, Immediately after the dlsminlon of the parade, a salute of thlrty>four guns, In honor of tbe day, was fired bv the batteries at tba followl 111?

THE FARADE OF GOVERNMENT TROOPS COMKS OFF THIS AFTERNOON. We hear that the order directing the V. 9. force* here not to parade to-dav. mentioned above, was changed at noon, so that they are to parade at three o'clock this afternoon TO-NTOHT. The anniversary will be celebrated to-night by a Union l?at 1 of the Federal Rlflea, at Franklin Hall, an entertainment bv the Infantry battalion at Coomba' Hall, and a military and civic ball of Company A, National Gu ird bittillon, and an rxtra bill of entertainment at the Theatre. Doubt less many of the pleasure-seekers of the night will commence with the Theatre and afterwards visit the balls in turn. Wiowaji ? Last night, the Republican AsmcI ation of the city turned out as usual in creat force for their weekly meeting. The president of the association, B B. French, Esq.. was in the chair. The secretary read the minutes of the last meet ing, containing, amongst other things, an account i?f how a resolution had been introduced at that entirely disapproving ot the name of a prominent republican in the Metropolitan police bill now pending before Congress, aud bow the same reso lution had been laid on the table.

Secretary Clephane stated that the President elect would arrive here next Saturday at 4 o'clock p m. It his been suggested that this Association take some special action with reference to his arrival. The executive committee have consulted with Mr. Lincoln's friends, and bv their advice (in which the executive committee entirely con cur) have determined to let the reception of Mr. Lincoln be tendered as is usual on such occasion*, and as has been done all along bis route hltber, by the local authorities. Therefore, Mr. Lincoln will be received on his arrival here by the Mayor and City Councils; and It is recommended thst this Associstion be present only as citizens, and not as republicans. [Applause, and cries of ' Good "J Mr. Pangborn, of Boston, made s speech to the Association, and was followed by Judge Kllgore, of Indiana. Mr K remarked upon the course of members of Congress from the border slave State*, In accu sing the republican party of being the sole au thors of the present difficulties They cry out that they are for the Union and the Constitution, but say If tha mw Administration shall attempt to preserve this Union which they pretend to love so well; thst if steps shall be taken by Mr. Lincoln to enforce the laws of the whole country, they will look upon It as a declaration of war, and will go off wltn their sister States that have seceeded, sod resist him.

As the gentlemen stepped upon the stage suc cessively, and received their diplomas, they were greeted with rounds of applause, differing in vehemence according to the section of the country represented. When the students from South Carolina ascended the stage the applause from the secession squad present was particularly noisy, rendering the woros of the President Dtrfectlv Inaudible. Dr Samson said that time would not admit of his delivering an address upon the occassion. and In a few word* bid farewell to tbe claaa He ex pressed a Lope that tbe bond of sympathy between them would strengthen and endure, and finally bind tbe Union In a mutual bond of peace and harmony.

Yesterday afternoon, the Ad;t>us' Kxpress agents delivered to the Hon. J. Holt, Secretary of War, a small box, consigned it Klngsville, South Carolina, to them, for him. Its sides were pierced with holes. Not knowing from whom It came, or what Its contents were, Mr. H. declined receiving It.
