py All recommendations for office, or com
munications of a private character, and in
tended for individual benefit, must be paid
for before insertion, or payment guarantied
by some responsible person.
|3T Communications intended for publica
tion in the Evening Star must be accompa
nied with the name of the author.
A correspondent, addressing us through
the post office, says:
" Suppose you suggest to some one who
has the right to act, that in order to let
the Metropolis compete with the States,
there be placed at each of the wards, on
the day of election, a small box, so that
whenever a person deposits his vote, he
can, at the same time, deposit his mite
towards the completion of the Washing
ton Monument. There is no one, no
matter how poor, who will not be willing
to lend his aid. Suggest this though
your valuable little sheet, and oblige one
who contributed in Kentucky."
We most cheerfully adopt this sugges
tion of our correspondent, and promptly
give it the benefit of our circulation. Of
its practicability, there seems no doubt.
The plan described has been carried out
in nearly all the States, and with en
couraging success. In some of the New
England States several hundred dollars
were collected on the days of elections.
By all means let this excellent plan be
faithfully carried out in Washington.
What more fitting place is there in all
our country for leading the way in gener
ous contributions to the Washington
It is a rule, we believe, with some pa
triotic, literary and benevolent societies,
never to make application for funds
abroad, until they have done all they
could do at home. On this ground, they
have applied with more confidence and
success to the public at large. Tried by
this standard, how would Washington
appear ? Have we done all we could here
for the noble structure that bears the
honored name of the founder of our city?
If not, with what propriety can we call
on the several States ? How can we con
gratulate the different commonwealths,
societies, orders and associations in their
generous contributions to this great na
tional work, if our own memorials are j
unworthy the great object in view ?
Let these questions be properly an
swered by all our voters at the next mu
nicipal election. No one has a right to
ask to be excused from contributing to
such a cause in such a city. Shame on
the American who is willing to see' the
Washington monument go up, without
contributing as much as he is able to
Who will see that these Washington
Monument boxes are furnished and placed
at the polls? Who will label them, and
direct to them the attention of every voter?
Remember what our great father has done
for us, and hasten to finish this national
monument to his memory!
Fine Situation.?We had the pleasure |
of visiting yesterday evening the elegant
and commodious mansion recently fitted
up by Mr. George Miller, on Grcenleaf's
Point. It stands in a commanding posi
tion near the banks of the Potomac, and
the views from its various windows are
beautiful to behold. It would be a great
benefit to that part of the city if Mr.
Miller would occupy that spacious esta
blishment, and open there a Public Gar
den. There is a great want of such a
place of recreation in Washington. If
Mr. Miller will take hold of the matter,
and the press will keep it before the
public, he could not fail to succeed.
Very Attentive.?The young gentle
men in Washington are worthy of the
highest praise for their general attention
to customers. We do not know of any
city that equals them in this respect.
This tribute is unsolicited. TV e render
it because we sincerely believe it to be
due to a large and meritorious class of
[?7* Thanks to Taylor & Maury for
Harper's Magazine for June. It is a

Mr. Jan^s, the British Consul at Nor
folk, gave a dinner on Taesd ay in honor
of the birth-day of Quocj Victoria.
One of the most delightful occasions we
have witnessed among our public schools
took place at Island Hall last night. It
was the May festival of the school of Miss
Middle ton, one of the most successful
teachcrs of the Seventh Ward. The hall
was crowded, the children were dressed
beautifully, the floral decorations were
splendid, the addresses were all appropri
ately delivered, and all retired delighted
with the scene.
The accomplished young Miss who per
sonated the May Queen acted her part to
perfection, as did each one of the fair clus
ter of her maids of honor.
Much credit is due to Mrs. Ilinton, of
another school on the Island, for the in
troduction of these pleasant reunions.?
We hope she will continue to carry them
out on every occasion. They please the
children" and interest parents in the good
cause of education.
Appointments.?The following appoint
ments have been made by the Commis
sioner of Patents:
S. T. Shugert, chief clerk, in place of
Gen. R. C. Weightman, to take effect on
the 1st of June.

resignation of H. B. Renwick.

tion in this State, as far as received :
First district, Hon. T. H. Bayly, dem.,
for Congress, had no opposition.
Second district, Millson, dem., is re
Third, John S. Caskie, dem., is chosen

ticket as far as heard from. Result doubt
Sixth, Powell, dem., is doubtless re
Seventh, Edgar Snowden, w., is 142
ahead of Smith, dem., with five counties
to hear from. Result doubtful, with the
chances in favor of Smith.
In the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 13th dis
tricts there was no serious opposition to
the democratic candidates.
For the legislature, the whigs gain 4
members ; the democrats one.
Reduction of Postage.?Bv an official
notice, says the Union of this morning, it
will be observed that the Postmaster
General, availing himself of the authority
contained in a provision of the postage
act of 3d March, 1851, has ordered a
reduction in the rate of postage on pam
phlets and magazines sent to or received
from foreign countries, which cannot fail
.to be highly acceptable both to the press
and to the public generally. By said
act, which is still partially in force with
reference to foreign countries, the rates
are numerous and complicated?varying
according to distance and the weight of
the article conveyed. For instance, ac
cording to this act, the price per ounce
on printed matter to the continent of Eu
rope is four cents an ounce, and to coun
tries distant over 3,500 miles the charge
is raised to five cents an ounce. These
rates, it is needless to say, are little less
than prohibitory. The order, therefore,
not only greatly reduces the postage on
pamphlets and periodicals; but what is
equally desirable, it fixes a simple and
uniform rate to foreign countries of two
cents an ounce as the price in all cases,
except as therein mentioned.

In pursuance of a determination at a
previous meeting, a meeting of the Demo
cracy of the Fourth Ward was held at
the City Hall last evening, for the purpose
of appointing delegates to a general con

nominating suitable candidates for the
various corporate ofacers, &c.

The following gentlemen appointed del
egates to the general convention, viz:
Geo M. Phillips, Francis McNerhaney,
William H. Thomas, Benjamin F. Morsell,
and Jackson Edmonston.
On motion of Mr. McNerhaney, a com
mittee was appointed to draft suitable
resolution when Messrs. McNerhany, Geo.
W. Phillips, and P. B. Key were appoint
ed the committee; which committee re
ported the following resolutions, which
were unanimously adopted:
"Whereas, in the opinion of this meeting,
the time has arrived when the issue should
be made whether Democracy?now in the
ascendant in a vast majority of the States
or Whiggery, now defunct" and we hope
forever buried, in most of them?shall pre
vail at the Metropolis of the nation. And
whereas, we believe that the Democratic
party needs only to be thoroughly organ
ized here to be gloriously triumphant as
it is elsewhere?therefore,
Resolved, That we, the Democracy of
the Fourth Ward, will in the ensuing elec
tion for municipal officers, support with
all our zeal, with all our might, with all
oui enthusiasm, such candidates as mav
be presented for our suffrages by the De

and the delegates appointed by this meet
ing are hereby instructed to vote only for
the nomination of such men as are known
to be true and unswerving Democrats.

THERE is not a doubt but many a life is
saved by the refreshing effects produced
from a glass of C. COLUMBUS'S PURE ICE

in its operatiods, it gives strength and appe

which defy the enervating influences of the

of the finest tastes to be superior to any made
