TH r ? NO. 5870. THE FOURTH OF JULY IN NEW YORK CITY. AMUSEMENTS, ACCIDENTS, AND INCIDENTS. TBS MILITARY DISPLAY. Acc., Arc., Arc. Another anniversary of the glorious, mr to bn r#Xnembered Fourth of July, 177ft. has passed Id Now Tork id all ot,t the land ?tho day upon which the representative* of the thirteen Slates in Gomtres* assembled. d-*ctared their freedom aud independenoe?a declaration which the providence of God. the bravery ?f American cltiiens. and the consummate wisdom of George Washington, made good against the greatest power on Oarth. This is a day which no true American can ever forget to celebrate, and no man with the spirit of freedom in liia heart (no matter what oountry has given him birth.) enn regard with any other feeling than that of reverence and re-pect. There is no class of naturalised citizens who are aieh enthusiastic celebrants ot the day as the Irish and the Germans, who, by contrast with '' fatherland,'' know how to appreciate the liberty, fraternity, aud equality that reign in this, " the adopted home of the biave and the land of the free." The ancleuts marked in the caleudar their lucky days with chalk, and their unlucky days with charcoal. Destiny has singled out of time the Fourth of July as the " bright particular star" of the political firmament, that sheds its holy light upon all nations and peoples who are struggling for freedom, and win, lor dial priori*** jewel, are wining to pleige their Urea, tbeif fortune*. and thrir sacred honor " It I* meet, right, and thr boundrn duty of every cltiien, to do hanor to this national festival. and to transmit thr legac/to hi* childrrn ai thrir dearest privilege, in order that they may baud it down to thrir chil lr?n for all generations. It i* a wholesome custom to keep up thr celebration of Indcprnd< nee Day It* indnruce is imbibed by thr infant with it* mother'* milk; it ' grows with hi* growth nnd strengthen* with hi* Strength," till it i* fully developed In hi* manhood, and ha ataud* proudly en ?t. the moat Independent human being on thr face ot' Qod'a earth. It i* no wonder that thia is a nation of *'>Miera, for scarcely ?an tba boy lisp thr word* - fourth of July," till br burn* with enthusiasm to commemorate it by thr explotion of gunpowder. " Thr child ia lather to the Biau." and make* the future hero. Heldom haa thr return of that day passed off wi h greater icUt than yesterday, it* seventy fourth anniversary, from sunset on the evening of the third, till thr morning of the fifth, there was no intermission of the rattle of firework* and the pealing ol firearms, from thr tiny pistol to tbn motion s roar. independent of the exhibitions ordered by the nuihoritie*. which will be found uudcr their proper hi .-ids. Large numbers remained up nil night on tbe 3J, in order to bo sirring with the sun on the 4th.
