LOXIAL MWS. -- - - Miitixo- or tut. Republican Associa tion. The' Republican Association held Its regular weekly meeting at the W'irwam last night, which was largely attended. In the ab encei of the President and both the Vice Presidents, Mr. A. 0. Richards was called to the chair. After the reading of the minutes, the fol lowing gentlemen wcro , elected members of the Association! W. B. Williamson, John Ma son, 0. Alexander, D. C. Hlckey, and P. Lu cas. The consideration of the election of Mr. J. Fisher, which had been Dostnoned from the preceding meeting, was further deferred until next Thursday night. It being announced thattbero were several Republicans from the city of Baltimore pres ent in the room, the Chair stated that this As sociation would be very glad to hear some thing from them. A brotherly feeling existed between them. The Republicans o( both cities knew what it was to acknowledge that they wero such. Mr. Forrest, of Baltimore, In response, re marked that he would occupy the attention of the Association but a few minutes. As had been stated, there were a few Republicans iu the city of Baltimore, and it was not an easy matter urba a Republican there, either. But notwithstanding the opposition they had had to encounter, they had gone on progressing, and had gatherea recruits every year. It was not his object, at this time, to say anything in behalf of Republican principles : they were already well versed In them, hohad no doubt; and he believed that, by a judi cious administration of tho affairs of Govern ment, the Republican party would predominate for many years to come. As for Maryland, its interests wero indissolubly connected with the Union. She would never leave it. There was onlv ono thins at work now which was tending to drag her out, and that was the fact that the time was anDroachinir when those who have held the offices for a long number of years past must secede from them. The Bell and Everett men were bere in this city, asking that the offices should be given to them ; they knew that withont this patronage they could not hope to carry the State next November. But he had just been to see the President in relation to the matter, and he bad stated that no appointments would be mads other than that of Republicans, where it was possible. Great applause. He had also been to see the members of the Cabinet, and they had each and all promised the same thing. Continued applause. Calls for speeches from tho Baltimore dele gation beinir continued. Mr. Bovle, of that city. took the floor. Be stated that he had, witli others, como to this city today, to impress upon the minds of the President and his Cab inet that none but Republicans Bhonld be placed on guard. The Republicans of Balti more had waded through storms, thick and thin ; in every move they had been checkmated. And now that tho President of their choice had been elected and inaugurated, they had been told that they mutt surrenderthe offices to their opponents, or they would secede. As a Baltimore Republican, ho would here assert that the Republicans of that city and of tho State of Maryland wero daily gaining ground, and adding 50 or 60 names to their list every night. If, by the action of the Administration, they were properly taken care of, Baltimore would give 8,000 votes for tho Republican nominees next November. Mr. Smith, of Baltimore, was ' loudly called for, but excused himself from speaking at this time on account of indisposition. Mr. Wilkins desired to know at what time the committee appointed to examine the books of the Secretary, would be able to report. The Secretary stated that the reason of the committee not being able to report, was because he had not been able, as yet, to put the books iu proper order. Ue would do so, however, at the earliest opportunity. On motion of the Secretary, the vote by which Mr. C. Ullman was rejected at the last meeting was reconsidered. Mr. Krzyzanowski nsked loave to withdraw the name of Mr. Ullman. There being no objection, the namo was withdrawn. The Association then adjourned. Parades and Drills. Yesterday appeared to be a gala day among the military. In tho morning the Light Battery statioued in the First Ward went through a driU in the Mon ument grounds, to the gratification of a large number ol interested spectators One of the artillery companies acting as in fantry marched out to Franklin square, and gave the citizens of that section of the city an opportunity to witness their proficiency in the military ait. The President's Mounted Guard, Captain Owen, had their weekly drill at the Columbian armory, and, under the instruction of Sergeant Johnson, second dragoons, proved themselves opt scholars in tho cavalry tactics. At night, tho 'Georgetown Mounted Guard, Captain Stewart, paraded our streets, and on the avenuo executed a number of evolutions in a very creditable manner. Tbo Potomac Light Infantry, Captain Me Kenney of Georgetown, about 9 o'clock, gave an exhibition in the skirmish drill, iu the pres ence of a Urge number of spectators, iu front of the President's House. They went through their drill in a highly creditable manner. The Carrington Home Guard, Captain God dard, also of Georgetown, also paid our city a visit last night. Their regular marching and soldierly bearing were much admired. Our own now company, the Constitutional Guard, Captain Degges, made their first public dress drill last night. They have, for some time past, neen unuer mo luairuuuuu ui t?vi- Scaut Charles Sherwood, of the Metropolitan .ifles, and of their own gallant commander. Their drill last night proves that they have been apt scholars, and reflected the highest credit upon tho new corps. Serenade. Hon. Carl Schurz, who was yes terday confirmed as U. S.. Miuister to Spain, was bereuaueu ai nis rooms ai iuo ueriuamu Hotel, on C street, last evening, by a number of his German fellow-citizens, with Weber's Band. On account of indisposition, Mr. Schurz was unable to appear and respond to the compliment. Beacthol Penmaxsiiii'. We notice in the hall of Willards' Hotel a superb piece of pen manship by Prof. Lulby, of Switzerland, which is' well worthy of inspection. It is enclosed in a handsome frame, and represents the past and present of the United Stales. In the ceutre is an admirable likeness of Washington, and around it are likenesses of Adams. Jefferson, Calhoun, Clay, Webster, Fulton, and others of America's favorito men. Around the border are the coats of arms of tho different States, be low each of which is the date of settlement, admission into the Union, and other epochs in their history. In various porlion of the work are miniature scenes of American history. Over the likenesses are the words of Webster, ' Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable," and also the motto of Jackson, " The Federal Uuion, it must aud shall be pre served." Tho work so much resembles an on- graving, that a close inspection is necessary lo remove the impression. Presidential Dinner. Pres'dent Lincoln last evening entertained the members of the Cabinet and their families by a sumptuous din ner at tho White Houso. Death or Mrs. Crawford. Mrs. Crawford, wife of Judge Thomas Hartley Crawford, of tho District of Columbia Criminal Court, died on Wednesday night, about 12 o'clock, at tho residence of the Judge on F street, between Sixth and Seventh streets. Her funoral will take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon. y The Sardinian Minister. On Wednesday, Chevalier Bertinatti, who lor some years past has represented the Government of Sardinia in this country, as consul general and chare.6 d'affaires, presented his credentials to the Pres ident as minister resident of that kingdom. He accompanied the presentation with a few ap propriate remarks, expressive of his pleasure at being introduced to the new Administra tion as a minister of his Government, and the wishes of his sovereign for the prosperity of the United states, and ot Mis determination to endeavor to merit all the benevolent esteem which he had on more than one occasion been the recipieut of from this Government. The President briefly responded, congratulating tho new miuister upon the high position held by his Government in the scale ot nations, aud re questing him to assure his sovereign that his good wishes fur our country are reciprocated bv us for his. and that it should be our con stant care to maintain the friendly relations,!!. now existing betweeu tho two nations.

In tho col lision, the sloop s skitf was run over and sunk. Concert.
