We hoar it ru mored that two recruiting officers of the Con federate army are in the city, and have been quite busy for a fan days past in enlisting and send ing off a number of men to the South. If they will only confine their business to such persons as they have heretofore, our citizens will have no canse for regret. So far, we believe some twonty or thirty have enlisted, who, we appre hend, will wish themselves back before many days. As to their character, many of their names have been frequently upon our magis trates' dockets, and, if we mistake not, for aomo of them Indictments are pending in our Crim inal Court. Parades. Company I, Second Dragoons, commanded by Captain William T. Magruder, were ont yesterday .morning on parade, ana presented, es they usually do, a very fine ap pearance. " During the morning they were ex ercised in the cavalry tactics, and performed many intricate movements in an excellent man ner, before quite a large number of spectators on the Monument grounds. Captain Griffin's Light Battery during tho day also paraded through some of our princi ple streets, executing on their route several mancouvres in a superior manner, notwithstand ing they were much pressed for room. Steamer Mokticello. Tho steamer Mon ticello arrived at the Western wharves on Mon day, with a large freight. Her list of consignees is very large, numbering one hundred and twenty, among whom are nearly all of our prin cipal business men. We regret that we are not able to publish it to-day. She sailed again yes terday for New York, with a very good freight, including about z,uuu barrels ot nour. A New PirER. By the advertisement in another column, it will be seen that a now weekly paper, to be styled the Sunday Morning Chronicle, under the proprietorship of James Sheridan & Co., is about to be started in this city. There is always room for a good paper, anil, from our knowledge of those engaged in this enterprise, we have every reason to be lieve that this will be such a one. Cektre Market. Tho market yesterday preseuted quite a lively appearance. There was a decided improvement in both quantity and quality, und purchasers were quite nu lueiuus. Owing to the high wiuds which have, pre ailed of late, the supply of fish is rather more scarce than is wont at this season of tho year; but should tne present lino leather con tinue, wo may soon expect to find them very plentiful. Easter Bali.. Companies A and B, Wash ington Light Iufantry, are making great prep arations for their Eistor Ball, which comes off at their new armory, next Monday evening.

Yesterday afternoon, tho fu neral of Private Burns, of tho Marine Corps, who died on tho evening previous, took place from tho Marine barracks. The remains were covered with the American flag, and wero fol lowed to their last resting-place by tho mem bers of his company, preceded by a corporal's guard and martial music. Private Burns, it will be remembered, was one of the marines who were wounded at the " Bloody Monday " riot on Seventh street, somo lour years since. A Mistake. About half past seven o'clock last eveniuc, a funny mistako occurred at the Guardhouse, As tho guards were gathering, preparatory to going on duty for tho night, two gentlemen, wnu uuaiuua me pince iut mu Theatre, walked uo to the euards, and re marked, " Well, boys, what's tho play to night ? " One ot the guards answered, tout lliey were up to any kind of play that might come up. They entered the magistrate's room, one of them going through tho building, while tho other stopped at the j ustico's desk, nnd repeated his inquiry. He was there answered that tho " Sea of Ice" was to be produced at the Theatre, but an afterpiece would be performed there in the morning. By this time the ex ploring gentleman had returned, and raado the other aware of their mistake, when a hearty laugh ensued, after which they wero directed to tho Theatre. NriiANCE.

The Chronicle will bo entirely Independent of party politics, although stiongly devoted to the union or tnese states, uur object will be to furnish the reading public such a newspaper as, while filling up the vacuum created by the ab sence of a medium of news on the. first day of the week, will contain nothing inconsistent with the Sabbath, and nothlDg calculated to wound the sensibilities of those who cntertiin a just prejudice against the reckless and Indecent char acter of some of the Sunday papers of the great cities.

Communications have already been received from a number of distinguished writers, North and South, whose names will be duly announced in the first number of the Cbron 1 le. We have also engiged the best talent for the collection of nens up to 12 o'clock on Satur day night, Including the action of the various Departments, the current events of tho city and District, telegraphic dispatches from all parts of tho Union, etc. The Chronicle will be served to subscribers at one dollar and fifty cents per annum, payable in advance.
