to-day. Mood at & degrees above lero.
Fibswobx9 os tck Focbt*.?We under
stand that the President hu, thit morning,
directed a display of fireworks, on the 4th in
stant, from National Monument point, direct
ly in the rear of President's Boose. The lim
ited time given for preparation will not rllow
as elaborate a display as has been sees op some
formeroccasions; bat the exhibition will, we
doubt not, be pleasing and satisfactory. The
grounds in tbe rau of the President's Uoase
will, we suppose, bo open.
Thb Globioc< Forem ?To morrow's d?wn
ushers in the stvntty-tigkik. annivereory of
tbe declaration of an idea that has awakened
tbe world to thoughts and deeds of Liberty.
The day is one of highest pride to the Ameri
can citizen, whose soul is aroused toconsidera
tions of its importance, and who loves the
country and the glorioa* flag that the doings
of that day produced Where has its influence
not spread ? It sends its ensign to all coun
tries, and is respected and honored every
where. The last triumph was in breaking
the close locke i se?Is of Japan, and opening
the ports of thai bidden country to Ameriean
commerce and?Freedom! Yes, o??
for wherever the flag of oar Union fl?a s, it
carries with it the principle of Freedom!
In Washington, the day is to be observed by
some Oi" the military?why not by all. we can
not divine?and several excursion parties, as
may be seen per advertisement, intend doing
all honors 'o the great ocsasion.
On Saturday wo notioed the companies and
the eXCUMonists who have made ample ar
rangements for a grand series of jubilees.
Bat we much regret t hat there ie not a regular
city celebration-such as the people had o!
oli when all who pleased assembled around
the pi* form, listened to words of patriotic
eWqueoeo aid there were "none to make
them afraid '' Such is still the influence of
Independence day, and we have only to hope
tha: all who celebrate it may enjoy themselves
to their heart's oontent.

What a Sailor Will Do ?While in Balti
jB>re a few days ago. we had occasion to visit
Fell's Point tne part of tha', city where men
>t go dtwn to the sea in ships.'' The whole
place, and the minds of ycung and old are
redolent of sailordom. the women all being
the lasses that love the sailor, and the men so
many water-bred creatures. This feeling is
infused into the boys, and we had an opportu
nity of observing it in a rather curious way.
In passing, we saw two yot-ng sea dogs fighting
and separated them, not without some diffi
cult v. for they cursed each other's ?? timbers''
is round - sailor talk " Each stood off. seeing
that they could not fist it out, and fought
with bard words. After exhausting tbe vo
cabulary of abuse about each other, they
turned to reflections on the character of fa
thers. brothers. Ac , in which the little boy,
we think, got the advantage.
Big Boy?I saw a man hugging your sister.
Little Boy?What of that; she s going to
msrry him- Bah!
Big Boy?Yes, and I saw a sailor kissing
your m th*r.
Iuttle Bo y?Thnt's nothing; a sailor will kiss
any boy's mother
This was a sockdol!oger; the big boy rolled
off; the little boy crowed, and the crowd laugh
ed at the idea of the boy in regard to what a
sailor will do? iis* utiy boy's mothtr.
Thb Washisgtos Mojumejt?Editors of
the Star: 1 have suggested to several of the
clerk# tha" we evince our veneration for the
Father of his Country by contributing, on the
4th of July, our compensation for that day. I
towards the completion of the monument in
course of erection to his memory, and each one
heartily consents to the proposition, if tbe
clerks generally will unite in it Will you
teggMt s me plan by which the proposition
may be laid before them ? The sum would be
hands- me if this arrangement can be effected.
July 3,1?54. AClbbk.
We give the scheme the benefit of an inser
tion in <.ur wi iely-resd local columns, that
those interested may ret their wit* to work to
devise a proper plan to carry out its object.
The Bs^r Monopoly ?The Star expressed
some viftwj last week in regard to tbe monopoly
of speculators in beef. To our own n jtions we
have tbe endorsement of the Philadelphia
bntcheTs who have entered into an agreement
not to purchase beet cattle at ihe high rates
which have been demanded In a notice by
them thej< say:?We are induced to enter
iatdgtaese arrang? men's beeauso tr< know
that there ij n -t ?uen a so ?rci:y of cattle in the
country as to justify any su?h prices, and they
are only su-tained by speculators buying them
np and pu ting them out of market. ' They
also re ommend the people to refuse to buy
betf a' all until prices are lower, and express
the hope of finally breaking up the schemes ol
Uef speculators.
Hor ?Ti'rr is DxMAsn ?Tho report having
been widely circulated that there have been
*vernl cases of cholera in Washington, every
youngster appears to be filling a bottle with
Kme preventive. fr?m "gin and Jamestown'
v> "old e igniac." The effect of the preven
tives upon different patients was quite evident
ycsteiday?m^ny being scarcely able to walk
ap >n tho pavement without running against
bouses or stepping into the gutters Persons
should be car. ful how they physio themselves
Too much of the preventive may result as
fatally as the disease
&abbath Breaking ?Yeo'erday. there were
Miner 'Us gmgs of blacks and buys in vai ious
of the city engaged in posting up their
pennies in tha old-f*shi >ned games of " cent
acta, and tossing pennies. Aneff?rt is about
to be made to break up this practice, and if
laecitit ns liviug near the gaming grounds
will add a little asiistauce to their complaints,
the plan may succeed
Xoi?t akd Covrusio*.?On Saturday night,
c tijens of almost every porion of the city
were disturbed by the yells and cries of drunk
? men and boys. At this lime tne heat of
the wither is sufficient to oppress us ; but
when tumult and riot are added, there can be
litt.e sleep tor the weary.

of gtllant ycung meu have started on a fish

colvr* eyeing maidens, charming music, and
whole souls to celebrate tbe Fourth. A plea
unt time awaits them, no doubt, and a happy
retain is tbe wish of many friends.
A St auBSTioa. ?We would suggest to the
Police M igistrates that it woald be proper for
theui to remain in their offices on tbe 4tn. We
kaow ot bat one or two Magistrates who ha\ e

THE FOUB MILE RACE AT FEW YOEK.
The four mile contest forthe olub purse of
#2000, over the National course, New York,
which came off on Saturday last, and which
was announced with sueh a great flourish of
trumpets, appears to have been a one-aided
affair from the start-got up by the knowing
ones to fleece the outsidera. The two horses.
Highlander and Di Clapperton, were in tip-top
condition, and the betting was done at 100 to
5 in favor of the former. The following report
of the race appears in the New York Herald:
?Th# horses were started beau
tifully, Di Clapperton taking the lead. She
ran three lengths in front around the upper
turn, which she maintained all the way round
both going very slowly, and came up the home
itretch, passing the *tand in 2:08i. They did
oot change their positions until they reached '
the back stretch, when Highlander fell a little !
farther behind. On the lower turn he ran to !
within a length of her. and in that way they i
passed the stand the second time. inl:59J ?- 1
They now began to increase their speed, and !
joing round the upper turn, Highlander'went i
sloaar to the mare. On the back stretch he '
ook sides with her, and they ran together to '
:he Mansion House, when Highlander wa.< '
.aken harder in band, and tbe mare woot awa^ 1
rom him in length, which she kept around ihe
ower turn and up the home stretch to the
itand, making ihe third mile in 1:55, amid
nuch applause from the delighted thousands
ind the unsophisticated were confident that Di
irould win On the last mile, Highlander kept ;
pretty close to the mare, until opposite the i
Mansion House he ran in front of her, leading !
i length around the lower turn and to thu'
stand, making the last mile in 1:54, and the '
beat in 7:57.
Second Heat.?The rider of Di Clappertoi, ! .
was changed, and a white boy substituted !
for the darkey. The hordes went off mot*.' \
rapidly than they did before, Di leading thre- ?
length j around the upper turn, and at least i
ux down the back stieich Highlander, how
sver, ran a little faster on the luwer turn, and 1
S?t *>thin a couple of lengths of the mare a- J 1
the passed toe stand. lime of first mile j J
l.ODj. There was scarcely any deviation ii ' *
their position during the next mile, Di passic
tbe stand th ee lengths ahead ia 1.54j O,
tbe third mile they kept as before, going th.
round in 1:55i. The cheering now was lout;
?nd vehemeut, and thuaeemed toexcite Higl -
lander and accelerate his pace. He tan u- '
rery close to tbe mare around the upper tur
and down the back stretch, until opposite tL. ''
