It was at first proposed to i>osti>one the dedication in eonse | quence of the weather; but inasmuch a* the : superintendent, Mr. Horner, had made all his I preparations for the banquet, and as the meni , hers generally favored no postponement on ae [ count of the weather, it was determined at j least to hold the festival to-day and this even | ing. and should the weather prove unpropitious to-morrow to postpone the second day's festival to the next fair dav. o Third l.fKiHlntite A<*Hembly.

Editor Star ?I see the question of taxing church property very widely discussed through the press, and it seems the "people have finally come to the conclusion that it is gross injustice to make others who have nothing whatever to do w ith that kind or property, pay tbe taxes for it. < >ur Christian brethren who profess to care more for the life which is to come, and there lore are not so much interested in the goods of thi# life, certainly should be the last to seek to accumulate riches at the expense of others, and the first to see the unchristianitv of compelling others to pay their bills for them, thereby of fending directly the principle laid down bv their master and law giver, namely: "I>ounto "others as you would others should do unto you." That is the sentiment if not the exact words. With the same, and I might sav even more right, our brethren, the Masons, 0?ld Fellows, and other charitable societies could claim that their tem ples. their halls, should be tax free, and the butilen be borne by others, as they are practical Christians, providing as tbev do tor willows and orphans, and relying merely on their own re sources and means, raised among themselves without soliciting the help and contribution of others, as some of the church organizations do, to -upport their hospitals, infant asylums, etc.. whereby m fact the public provides the mean* and they have the absolute control. But what would l>e said of the benevolent associations should they make such a demand ot our Chris tian brethren? If a number of i>ersons, sav forty or fifty, under the lead of a new reformer", concluded to start a new society and erect a building, called church, for the purpose of car rying on therein their own peculiar perform ances, be they religious or otherwise, why should they not pay their own expenses ami bear their own burdens as othersdo, and how in the name of Christianity can they bring it In harmony with their consciences to compel others to pay the bill for theii peculiar enjoy ment.

There was considerably more than a hogshead of whitewash used in arriving at said conclu sion. The report, likethe board, wm colored to suit the circumstances."?Capital. The fire commissioners have come to no such conclusion. There was an investigation by the commissioners not as to any charge of ?'incom petency displayed at the Michler place fire," but as to the delay in calling out the fire depart ment for that conflagration, and the facts were re|?orted to the board, who approved the rejxirt of their committee. Had there been incompe tency in using the means and appliances of the department for extinguishing fires when the companies did arrive, the entire row would have been destroyed. Such a fire does not go out of itself whether the wind is blowing or not. As a sufferer by the fire, the editor or the Caintal is to be excused if he cannot look at the m itter dispassionately As no colored men have any thing to do with the lire-alarm, the reravks of the Caj ital about color hardly fit the case.

Editor Star:?A long and elaborate piece of i-me fiction, evidently prepared by wine bone banter, to frighten the directors of toe Washing ton Market company and make them come down, appeared in O. C. Fom'y't -Sunday Chroni cle. If the writer ha<I presented one single fact or even accurately rehashed the old ami worn out slanders against the market company, which were expostd and nailed as falsehoods by the report of their investigating committee made to : the District legislature August 12th, lt*71, he might have claimed immunity for sandwitching > in the mass of misrepresentation contained in ' the article referred to. While recompiling ttie ; right of an independent press to strive to correct I abuses which injuriously affect their patrons, I deny, in behalf of the market company, all and singular every essential representation contained i in this unwarranted and libelous attack upon i the directors and managers of the Washington Market company. A large majority of the stockholders, as well as the directors of this company, are not only citizens of Washington, but are among the heaviest taxpayers in the District. AreM.G. Emery, president of the Washington Market company, T. C. Connolly, Hallet Kilbourn, Moses Kellv. R. B. Clark, Hugh Coyle, Caleb Cushing, W. E. Chandler and S. S. 'Sinoot. di rectors, strangers to the citizens of Washing ton T Are they men who would be likely to per petrate a fraud or over-tax the people wno purchase food at the market? In order to an swer these last questions I have hastily drawn off the figures to show the public the ex*ct financial condition of the company so far as receipts an<1 expenditures on account of rent ?1 of the stalls from the new market sheds th it were erected after the fire up to the 31st of last De cember Total amount of rental received from all sources during the year 1X71, 942.632.4:?.

It will thus be seen tl at during this time, and for over two years, the stockholders of the market company received no dividends, and had actually used over *10,000 of the money paid in on the origi nal stock to give the public and tin; dealers I temporary accommodations l.y building tem porary structures, after the "old market w*s burned, and instead of haying assessed and collected t>ne dollar from of stalls or stands to pay towards the construc tion of the new buildings, the total receipts up to the present time, alter de ducting rental due the District, local taxes and ri nning expenses, would not reimburse the construction f und tor money drawn from it as before stated. The stockholders paid in 9100,000 in cash, when they subscribed for their stock. They then issued coupon hondson notes and raised 9100,000 more. The Treasurer has received from bonus on account of sales of stalls and stands up to this time about *:?4,000, while the market company has a floating indebted ness which will make the total cash expendi tures nearly 9^50o,i*o0, jj) erecting what is ad mitted by every impartial and tair minded per son, including strangers from every part of the country to be the largest and best retail market in the t'nited States, if not in the world. The market company reluctantly yielded to the District authorities under the "recent act of Con gress the entire front land secure*I to them by their charter for ninety-nine vears. The land thus surrendered to "the District authorities would probably produce when fully improved an annual income of 920,000 or 930,000: yet dividing the land ui>oii the basis ot the valuation fixed by the A*?essor?. the District authorities, under the recent act ot Congress, get this entire valuable frontage by allowing the market company about *12,000 a year upon their rental, or, what would be the interest on about *150,000; whereas every one acquainted with the value of real estate would value thjs immense frontage of over 500 feet at more than twice that sum. In regard to the transfer of the city's interest in what is known as the City Hall buildings to the U. S., 1 cannn see that any harm can {tossibly come to the city, as the gentlemen comi*osing the com mittee who recently fixed the valuation of that property, are supposed to be quite as loval ami devoted to the present "regime" as the pro prietor of Fort y's Suwlay Ckrvnicle can possibly aspire to be. The statement made in the article referred to, that the root of the market was in a leaky condition, is equally as false as either of his other assertions. The roofs of the market build ings are of the mast substantial character, and bave never leaked at all since they were built. In the designs for the market, prepared by the architect. In order to give perfect ventilation ventilator windows, working upon iron pivots, were placed in the ventilators of each building. It has been found that during a driving storm, with heavy winds, the rain forces itself through the spaces which are necessary to allow the win dows to partially revolve, which causes a drip ping near the center of the building during these heavy storms. This, however, only occurs during a heavy wind and driving rain storm. In order, however, to obviate this annoyance, double rows of heavy tin S|>outing are being cut in and placed on the inside of the ventilators, which catch this water and return it through a small aperture to the outside of the roof. This unusual precaution has been adopted by the com pany to avoid all grounds of complaint, and the entire work will be completed in afewdays. The discreditable and cowardly rehash in regard to the falling of a portion of the 9th street wall during a heavy gale, and before the mortar had had time to harden, was malicious in the ex treme, as the writer well knew. If he knew anything about the matter he knew that every particle of the wall that was jarred by that which fell was taken down, and that the whole was rebuilt under the directions of Mr. Diggs, one of the very best builders in the city, and in the most substantial manner; and I here chal lenge the writer of the article to select any three responsible builders or architects to ex amine the eutire market structure, and if they do not pronounce it one of the best and m >st substantially-built buildings of this class in the I'nited States, I will publicly, and in the newspapers, acknowledge the correctness of his statements. If they do report these buildings of the most substantial character as I have be fore stated, coaiiiu:. Jececcy should require ttie writer to apologise to the entire cominuuity as well as to the market company for his gross and unwarranted misrepresentations. The market company are anxious to secure a reduction ot the rental on the stalls and stands in the m ir ket just as fast as they can do so and pay tUe city lor the supi>ort of the poor, the local tax js. and running expenses, and secure 8 or 10 per cent, on the amount actually invested in th se market buildings. To &.? who complied with the regulations of the company and paid their quarterly rental in advance at the commence ment of the present quarter, the market com panv made a reduction of 10 per cent., ami hone as soon as the stalls are nearly all itermanenilv occnpled, to be able to make a still further re duction. The present rental, as fixed by the District authorities and the market company timier the law of Congress, is much leas than in almost any of the large cities in this country, and I suspect that if some men claiming to be respect able, would pay the market dealers when their bills fall due, or at least as promptly a? the poor laborers do, there would be less com plaint of high prices of market products In conclusion, I desire to say that as the mar ket company, under the recent act of Congress, accepted the terms offered them by the District authorities, and transferred the entire front portion of their land to the District. I cannot possibly see what interest the market company can have in the wis of the city's buildings or in the action of the legislature In reference to the appropriations of money to improve the valuable land thus acquired without any ex penditure on the part of the district, as under the present arrangement they have nothing whatever to do with any buildings here after to be erected, and Instead or de siring to secure the triangle, handsomely fitted np at the carrer of 9th street and Penn sylvania a venae. All of the directors of the market oompaay concurred in the opinion that the Louisiana avenue line, between gth andotti streets, was perhaps more preferable for build ing purposes than the Pennsylvania avenue line.
