About halt' past three o'clock in the afternoon the ex wwire dixcLnrge of gunpowder began to produce a con ? detsble cbaugc in the weather. Dark clouds gathered M ihe heavens, and soon a thick, heavy and drenching ya.n shower poured down npon the city, making pad havoc f light coats, bonnets, hats and clothing generally, and throwing a considerable damper on patriotism.

The celebration was, therefore, renewed with increased ardor, and when night set In every tking was in splendid condition for the tiro works.

Fair weather is a necessary concomitant of a grand wamtarv review, and in this respect our citizens were par Mddirly favored cb tho Fourth. The sun shone forth through a clear sky, an<l his rays enmo down on U-rra firnia w ith sufficient forco to male; everything appear pleasant. Indeed, w e could not have desired more pleasant weather. Early iu the morning the air reverberated with ihe stratus ot mart at music attending the various military companies and regiments in their marchings and ouiitermarebiugs. iu from their uriuorics to the 9tVtsion Parade Ground iu Fourteenth street, where a genera) review took place iu presence of His Excellency Governor E. P. Morgan. As we stated before, the parade ground was in Fourteenth street, tho right of the military column resting on Broadway. When I nil the troops of the division hail arrived at the proper place n' ce it mustered thirteen regiments of all arms at the service, ami extending over one half of a mile in length. Tho temporary headquarters of Governor Morgan and LtaC were at th? Metropolitan Hotel, from whence they were escorted by the excellent Washington Gray I Trsep, Capt. J. M Yarlan. ills Excellency and staff, in IU11 un.form, arrived in Union square shortly after eight 'clock A. M., and were announced by tho usual gibernatarial salute of twenty one guns, flred by a detachment of the Fourth regiment of urliilery, under the command of Lieut. Pninrrll. At other joints tho military ceremonies were truly ^aad. and tho subject well worthy tho attention of an artud. fbo windows and baUoulos of tho Union Place Hotel, Everett House, Clarendon Hotel, and the palatial residences in Union square, aud Fourteenth Street, were filled with tho fair form- oi'a countless number of tho beauty and fashion of the metropolis ; the piebeams aud the loss favored of our citizens contented themselves by taking n sidewalk view of the proceedings, acd thermal! boys and the l>:g boys appropriated tho Shade trees and lampposti to themselves, from which they might v.luce* the whole affair. The Union pork, gvern verdure, and the fountain la its ceutro in full peration, throwing up its n-arkllng pis of puro GVoton; Um Hags ou tho bouses, the inspiring music of the military bands, mid the shouts of tho spectators, gave the affair %atVe a character.

The cblcfh, sachems and warriors ef Tammany were Summoned to Assemble in the Great Wigwam at twelve o'clock, to participate iu tbe celebration or tbe Fourth? be order of exercises being announced us music by Slielton', Brass Band, tho select pieces being Washington's March,''"Hail Columbia," and "the Star Spangled Banner"?an address by Grand Sarhem James Conner?tho reading of tbe Declarat ion of Independence by Brother John T. ITofftnan, and an address by Brother John Cochrane. From twelve o'clock till one the band discoursed muslo from tho balcony, from which also a number of the "governing classes" amused themselves by ehovrer ing fire crackers and torpedoes on tho passers by; but at tbe latter hour the attendance of "chlcfc, sachems and warriors" was exceedingly slim Eijah F. Purdy was there?the War Horse of the'democracy?so was John Cochrane, its dramatic orator, and so was Prince John Van Bnrrn, its punster and Joker In ordinary. The Sheriff, John Kelly, came in helor* tbe proceeding* commenced. Tbero were also present W. D. Kennedy, D. E. Pels van, Deputy Sheriff* Dunlap and Cornell and Douglas Taylor. The only federal officer whose presence wo oh served was Aneon Derrick. The slim attendance was accounted for by the fact that the usual supply of liquid* and solids, w hich has been from time Immemorial an accompaniment of Fourth of July celebrations at Tammany, was not forthcoming. Was it that tbe office holders will uot pay up their assessments, and that, therefore, the funds of tbe society are at a low ebb, or that It was deemed advisable to avoid tho unseemly rush to tho retesbmriit room that oa> always characterized Mich occasions? We culiool Ray Perhaps both these rcafODB may have had their tnilue ice. Either of th< m was siifilrient. But the refr?Hhments were not on hand, and neither were the warriors. There were probably home hundred persons present all told, but they did not lock very wurlike, nor evince any high degree of interest in the proceed lugs. A platform wa- raised at tho north >ad of the room, with a desk, table and seme chairs, fhr the use of tbe Facbems. The only decorations in the ha I onus is tod of four retire tor.- and a statuette of Andrew Jacksou. 1 A sachem, with a ruby velvet bell and tho medal of 1 the order attached to it around his uock, read one of tho 1 by laws or the society providing for the duo observance ol tbe "glorious Fourth." I Brother Joua T. Hurru wearing a blue silk belt with red borders, read that "firing of glitter ng generalises^ the Declarat ion of hidcpetid -nee. speech of hon. john cocttbavk. The Hon. Jon* Cocbkob was then Introduced, and v.aa greeted w ith three cheers. He spoke as follows:?Bro tbers of the Columbian Order. 1 appear before you quite unpr< i*red, and perhaps unequal to Mo solemnity and magnitude of the occasion which invites my address.

That waa the achievement of party acting t fbintly in lie Inoeptioa. determinedly In its course, until, t culminating la the proud net of a declaratory independence, ] it atood irmly in Ha (bll proportioaa before the world? ( the great party of freedom in the United States. (Ap- < pfaiose.) Bat yet ltwaa not at that period, my brothers, that the ofltoea of party became man determined and effectual than at any other liam. Success had boen achieved. Our frnstam had bona established. Tho go- , vernment was to ha est la saottna, and then, when re- . lleved from the preanre of a common peril, w as it that men's differences at opinion on minor and governmental points began to work out tho diet tact loos and lines which prevailed between parts of the land. On one side wore 1 ranged those who, not conceding the full power of the people to govern themselves, stare tho disciples and advocates of a 8truag government?a governmcn t of consolidation, which should rest the power and control in tho hands of a few, who, by talent, ability, superior virtue, or artificial accident, might be entitled to, or had secured the high privilege or the admtamrstioD of public affairs. On the other side, however, there were thoec who, with full confidence In the Integrity of human nature un I in its competency for self-government,affirmed, and ultimately established, the broad principle of the right and pow er of the people to govern themselves, f Applause ) Here you perceive the origin ef perties, which most always exist under a jo polar govern m rat. On tho one side were J 'hose who,fiom human interests,human desires and am- < hitlers, contended far a strong, oanaolldated government; . n the other ride wore those who, with ninre general and aib< iir ? ndencieft, declared that sovereignty should be I permitted to remain where It originated? w*h the p-oplo themselves?and that as often as power was exhausted. so often should power return to its source, and that at limited periods thry who had been invali d w ith Ihe representation of this popular sovereignty should return and give an account ot their at- wardship to tho people from whom it sprang. On the one side, therefore, you bad at that time the great federal [>arty?a pnrty ineluding within its ranks honest, upright, able and patriotic men?men who had in the field and in the cabinet been instrumental in achieving the liberties of tho country; men w hose names are, even at this day, synonymous with ibe glories of the American republic. (Applause.) But it was against men of that description, or such pure motive and such lofty Intellect, that the great disciple of liberty and democracy lifted his protest and levelled his most forcible propositions, ft was trAinnt those men that Thomas Jefferson arraved him svU and tbe /rent republican pwty of the age?not tho repfiblit an party of 1960. moving through dark and de vinos courses under the obscurity of night, but the republican party of tbe eighteenth century .moving upwards inwards that light in which rejoiced the flight of the then proud emblem of our independence, the American Kagle, upending Itself through the falaomo air, and claiming that they who had achieved independence were able, competent, and determined to sustain and support It. From that period to the prescut, It wore needless for me to attempt to show that tho country has boon 1 maintained and preserved by party?not only bv party, but by the democratic party alone? ( Bravo, bravo,'' (Y<?m a patriotic offlco bolder)? 1 a party whose ereed rests simply on the right of the peo- i pic to govern themselves, a party which draws Its first principles of Ibith from those lines that were read hare thin morning that all government Is derivod from the consent of the governed. No matter under what different i phases Ihnt party may have appeared at different periods ( of its existence,"no matter who may have been its temporal y leader, no mutter what tho duclivity or descent 1 which destiny had prepared tbr it, under all tts aspects ( slid with every change, that party, true to its principles, . moved rteaol'y forward?steadily forward In support of lumi ?

In brief, | ttierefore, brothers, I have row explained toyou tbe < dices of party in the support and eonttn>ian<'e or our in- 1 si Motions 1 have shown to you that in all the career of t this country it has been prodmod and accelerated by the | instrumentality of this one glorious and undivided party. Therefore is it lha I say now , at tbia period of my re- ' matks, that the juncture of present affairs Is pregnant i w Mb mat*cr Importance and of deep deliberation to , every man?pntri ., citizen, alien, native or adopted, in* ClOThS ULtT town* VIMS OV* Burs*.

Both resolutions were adopted. RT.M.tHKS OF ITON. JOHN" KKI.LT. Mr. JoHJi K> my in response to repeated calls, came for ward and spoke briefly. How, ho asked, did they fin themselves now In this old building dedicated to tho de mocratic part) ? They found themselves a divided party. But although they should be beaten in this contest, tba would not be the prostration of the democratic party. There would be a regeneration of that noble party, which Me ted from the beginning of the government, and would exist to the end. (Bravo.) He hoped they would al sustain the regular organization of tho party. (Applause. Sbphen A. Douglas had not been his own choice hi cause he foresaw the very evils that had resulted from his nomination;but Mr. Douglas was now the regular can-' didate of the democratic party?(cheers)?and any opposition that might be offered to him was a factious one. for ever; one would admit that the government would bo as safe iu his hands aa .a the hands of any other man named for the Pr> sidoncy. He trusted in nod tliat this dissension would bo settled bofere the election; but if not, it was their duty to stand by the nominee of tho party, on every coneideration. (Bravo.) They still bad a party, and even should Jbey be beaten in the contest, the mere abstraction that divided them now would soon bo obliterated from their memories, and the great democratic party would go on aa before. ( Three cheers for John Kelly"). This ended the exercises, and the meeting broke np. The address that was to have been delivered by Mr. James Connor was postponed till the occasion of his inauguration as Grand Sachem, some weeks hence. THE CORPORATION REGATTA. Amongst the other things provided by tho city authorities for the proper celebration of the Fourth was the anDual regatta, and, in point of interest, it was no way behind anything that took place before In our waters. Two large barges were provided?one by the members of the Comm<m Council, and another by the members of the Xew York Regatta Club. Both bargea were very tastefully decorated with bunting of all descriptions, and, with the crowded and pleased passengers, formed quite an interesting picture. At about twelve o'clock the two barges were towed out into the stream, at about a distance of 400 feet from the shore, and tbero anchored so as to enable the guests to have a good view of the coming regatta. On board the rvimmon Council barge they had Robertson's band, which helped very much to enliven the scene, by playhig |at short Intervals some of the most fashionable and in<plritlng airs. On both of tho barges they had a collation fur the'guests; but there appeared to be a general omplaint of the small quantity of edibles, whilo. thero rcre plenty of drinks to bo obtained on all sides. A peron who obtained a sandwich was considered e.Ttrcmoly urtunate, and thero were many w bo went hungry all the ay. The of the Battery attracted unusual attenion, on account of its crow ded state. Tram one end to he other there was nothing to bo se?n but human beings, ind the estimate made by those who were judges of the lumber of persons gathered on the Battery to view tho egatta was nearly twenty thousand. Tho neighboring wrra rrcm-.l**! w Jh nnnnlev nil mxious to witness Um races and lo cheer on their farorttee. The only drawback to the day's amusement was tba itorm that sprang up, and helped to dampen tbo ardor ol ill In moro than on? sense. Those in the judges' boat rem exposed to it all, and bad to patiently sit and ircatlier the storm, which instod ibr nearly half an hour, rbc small awning orar the boat, instead of serving as a protection to thoao beneath, only gathered the rain, and :hen deposited it with force upon tbo unfortunates below, flow ever, nobody forgot that it was tho glorious Fourth, and becomingly boro it with a fortitude worthy of the day: tnd when the can again shone out, and the ra^os, which rereinterrupted for a short time, wero o ninuoJ, every>ody forgot the drenching they got, and ail was again exitcment and good h'tmor. The scene on the Battery when It com m-meed to rain ras amusing in the extreme. The thousands who had lathered thero Bed hefbre the storm. Men, women and ihlldren could be seen flying at all points to some place of tafety, and in five minutee after the ra.u commenced there were scarcely one hundred people left on the ground. But scarcely had the rain nbs.dej when the Buttery was again all life, and no one would Lave imagined that anything unpleasant had oooirred. The scene in the bay was well worth se? leg, and ft rmod a picture that New York alone could produce. There were steamer* loaded down with pas ngoM. some of them almost bent down to the guards; there were excursion boats, private boats, i>hing parties, kef. and everything that would Coat was pressed into service. The shipping was gayly decorated with flags, and the Harriet lane had strings of flags fore and aft, and presented quite a pleasing aspect. The Illustrated papers had artists on the Common Council barge, who took sketches of the d Rereut races, and there was nun gentleman a ho had an apparatus for taking instantaneous pictures. The excitement on ail Bides was intense, and at the clese of the regatta ill expressed themselves pleased w.tb the dgys entsrv?<nmen!. THE WICTJt.

' decision of the judges as to the winrer of the racewu withheld, and they agreed to arrange the matter at thi Washington Hotel as soon as the balance or tho race was over. This was agreed to by all par tic., and the last or the race was commenced. The tifth race was thon begun, and proYOd tho most exciting or the day. It was lor the championship of the cull boats, and the follow lng were the entries made:? Thomas Jeflerson, length, lid reel. Joseph A. Gardner, length M root. Star of the West, length 25 foet. Oscar Teed, length 26 feet. Theodore 0 ravin. Annie, length 24 feet. Japan, e, length 201'eet. Get Along. Unknown. They started well, and came In at the first round as follows Oscar Teed, Japanee. Thomas JcficrsoD, Joseph A. Gardner, Star or the West, Annie, Theodore Gravin, Get Along, Unknown. On the second and winning round tho boats taking prises were as follows:? Oscar Teed, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Gravis. The first prize was $100, Uw second $50 and the third $25. This concluded the day's amusement, and the Judges adjourned to the Wa-hington Hotel to award the prizes. The following gentlemen anted as judges on the occasion, and tbclr word was law:? J. Sherman Brownell, 7-achariah Voorhies, Jas. U. Welsh, William II. Bultcel, John Hall, Thomas Byrnes, fydney Dorian. Alter the second prize bad boon given to the rightful owner, the case of the disputed (bur oared race was taken up, and after some little deba o anil a greatjdeal of bod fceiiinr. the matter was finally post pined for arrangement until yr-terdav evening at "eight o'clock. Some of tho crew of one of the boats accuse one of the crew of another with putting an oar through their boat; but we could not possibly arrive at any safe conclusion at to the merits of the case; but for tho sake of fair dealing and honesty, we hope the charge is groundless, and that an examination may set all things right. The judges or the regatta held a special meeting last ev.mlng, at the Washington Hotel, So. 1 Broadway, to decide upon what boats won the fourth race, some trouble having risen in consequence of tho stake boat having drifted during the storm, and on the day of tho race tho judges were unable to determine exactly who were entitled to the prizes. There was also a charge mudo by the crew of the Judge Voorbies, of Brooklyn, against the F. 3. Wood, of Xcwburg. of striking an oar through the bottom of their boat, and sinking bcr, but the Judges left that matter to be settled by tho club..and confined themselves merely to the decision of the race. After some little debate they decided to award the prizes to the boats as they came in. which was as follow ,.?The Unexpected first, the Charles McCay second, and the Stranger, of Poughkcopsio, third. The derivion of the judges deemed satisfactory by all. and tho meeting broke up with cheers for the judges and the reporters of the press. The judges have sot a day apart for the we of the sailboats, and bAve changed toe eonrao to be *a' >d. The race will take place, wether pt ruutting, ?w te n M>ui<l?y afternooc at two o'clock, and the course w ill be round Kills Island, instead of round the take boat*. The length of the course was four mites ".he boats started at a signal from the Judges boat, gotuz north U> a stakeboat, anchored in a line with pier 4,.North river, turning from cast to west: from Ihcoce south, psastn - on the west side of the judges' boat to a stakeboat, ancltored in a line with pier 1, Ea?t rIvor, and Governor s Island, turning l'ltm west to east, from thence, pacing between the judges' boat and the Battery, going once more around the same course without stopping. Ihe arrangements of the barge, 4c., were under a committee composed of some of the members of the Board of Aldermen and the Board of Oouncilmeu, and it will be only dohig them justice to say that everything was conducted in as orderly and peaoeable a manner as anybody could desire, nothing occurring to mar the pleasure of the day. if we may except the shower of rain. Taken on the whole. It was a sueoeea, and served to enhance still further in the minds of the people the glorious Fourth, ai d to impress upon them the necessity of always celebrating it in the most joyous manner.
