Washington Monument. 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 Monument ? 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 complete it! 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 our citizens. [?7* Thanks to Taylor & Maury for Harper's Magazine for June. It is a number of great variety. That French Paste of De Holland's which T. & M. have for their customers is one of the best ar ticles of the kind we have ever used. Editors ought to be good judges in such cases. Mr. Jan^s, the British Consul at Nor folk, gave a dinner on Taesd ay in honor of the birth-day of Quocj Victoria. Pleasant Scene. 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. Examiner?T. R. Peale, to vacancy by resignation of H. B. Renwick. Assistant Examiner?Alfred Herbert, in place of Peale, promoted. Clerk?Jas. T. Fales, in place of C. F. Stansbury. Temporary Clerk?Doct. Holt.

Call, and imbibe. Virginia Election. The following is the result of the elec 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 elected. Third, John S. Caskie, dem., is chosen by about 300 majority. Fourth, W. 0. Goode, dem., is elected ! by a large majoritv. Fifth, John T. Wootten, w., leads the ticket as far as heard from. Result doubt ful. Sixth, Powell, dem., is doubtless re elected. 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. _ Gen. G. K. Lewis, the celebrated Ran- j ger, is a candidate for Congress in i Texas. The laborers in the employ of the Phila delphia, Wilmington and Baltimore rail road companies, are on a strike. Strawberries are becoming abundant, and in consequence cheap. A sea tigress, weighing six hundred pounds, has arrived in Baltimore.

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 vention to be held for the purpose of nominating suitable candidates for the various corporate ofacers, &c. On montion, Mathfw Butler was called to the chair, and B. F. Morsell appointed secretary. 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 mocratic Convention soon to assemble; 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. On motion, it was recommended to the various \\ ards to hold the convention on Saturday evening, the 28th inst, at the Common Council chamber in the Citv Hall. 7 On motion, it was ordered that the proceedings of the meeting be published in the Union and Star.
