"W ashingtgs of Old?Water ?We all know
Washington as it is now, with its magnificent
buildirgs, its abundance of tree?", its thicken
ing of dwellings, and leant oj miter. Mr.
Andrew Lilicoit, in 171*3. said: "No place has
g o ?ter advantages of water, either for the
8Ui't?y 'he city ?r for cleaning the streets,
than this gi??ur?d He speaks cf tbo head
witers of Kuck Creek, but especially refers to
the water of the Potomac, above :he Great
}? alls, fourteen miles from tbe city, whijh is
one hundred acd eight feet higher than tide
water. ? Tbia watrr, ' he says, "may not only
be carried wTer llie highestground in the city,
but, if necessary, over the tops of the houses.'"
The Schuylkill of Philadelphia, the Croton of
H rc:k. the Coshituate of Boston, and Jones'
Falls of Baltimore, supplying those citie*,
fall far behind the capacity of our Great Fal's,
and yet we are actually suffering for tbe want
of water.
But of that enough has been said, and we
therefore 'ecur to our reminiscences, only rt
mirking that we hope that amendment
providing for the water-works $500,000,
may prevail in both Houses. As to Washing
ton of old. wo find that on '-the 15th day of
April, 1791, the Hon. Daniel Carroll and Dr.
D.ivid Stuart superintended the filing of the
first corner-stone of the District of Columbia,
at Jones's Point, nenr Alexandria, where it
was laid with all the Masonic ceremonies
usual at that time." We quote from Var
num's book on the seat of Government, which
"The proceedings in reference to the opening
of a national city, appear to have awakened
much interest in all parts of the country. In
an extra number cf the Herald, published at
Philadelphia, on the 4th January, 1795, we
find a long article, setting forth the general
plaa, and, more particularly, the designs for
improving the mall It commence thus;
*' 'To found a city, in the centre of the
lljited States, for the purpose of making it the
depository of the acts of the Union, and the
sanctuarv of the laws, which must, one day,
rule all North America, is a grand and com
prehensive idea, which has already become,
with propriety, the object of public respect. |
In reflecting on the importance of the Union, !
and e n the advantages which it secures to all
tJtie inhabitants of the United States, collec
tively, or to individuals, where is there an
American who does not see, in the establish
ment of a Federal town, a natural means for
confirming forever that valuablo connection,
to which the nation is indebted for liberation
from the British yoke? The Federal city,
situated in the centrc of the United States, is
a temple erected to liberty; nnd towards this
edifice will the wishes and expectations of all
true friends of their country be incessantly
directed. The city of Washington, consideied
under such important points of view, could not
be calculated on a small scale; its extent, the
disposition of its avenues and public squares.
?hoald all correspond with the magnitude of
the objcct for which it was intended?and we
need only cs-st our eyes upon tbe situation and
plan of the city, to recognize in them the com
preben?ive genius of the President, to whom
the direction of the business has been com
mitted by Congress. ' "
On the 18th of September, 1793, the south
east corner stone of the north wing of the Cap
itol was laid by General Washington. Here
was about the origin of Washington City, its
present character fully justifying the predi
ti ins of its founders, with the single exception
of its supply of pure and wholesome water, so
much ni.>eded for public as well as private pur
" Hack, Sir ! Hack, Madam !"?This i* the
annoying cry from some imprudent hackmen,
who yell the words into person's ears, including
lad:es. in a most deafening manner. At the
railroad depot theevil is almost insupportable,
the din of their voices making the plaee hideous
with harsh sounds. Now, we would ask in all
kindness to tbe hackmen, what is the use of
this noisy mode of doing business ? Do they
get any more to do byn? On the contrary,
do they not lose by this species of annoyance
to travelers? We have known persons refuse
taking a hack altogether on account of the
clamor raised by these noisy competitors.
Mary pas? the contestants by, and seek some
quiet, well behaved driver, whom they en
gage to convey them to their destination, ra
ther than endure the ear-piercing voices of
these vociferous Jehus. If they wish to do
more business they Bbould avoid the practice
altogether, and not ack any person if they want
a hack, which is not only useless but foolish,
because any person wanting a hack will go to
the hackman without these lung cracking in
vitations. In other words, if a gentleman or
lady wants to hire a hack, cannot they ask for
it; and if they den t want to hire, what is the
use of bailing at them. "Hack, sir! b^ck,
madam !" and calling for them to go this ho
tel or that. A little less noise and more pa
tienoe is recommended in a frieudly way to
these competitors of the whip. They will
make by our advice.
Etiquette for Ox*ibusses.?A cynical
old bachelor, as " Ites " of the Baltimore
Argus presumes, furnishes the following code
of etiquette for omnibusse3, which perhaps may
pocsibly be useful here, in tho good city of
"It seems by long established practice, to
be understood that it is polite for ladies to
crowd into an omnibos, no matter how strong
and healthy they may be, and no matter Low
many fatigued and even sick of the other sex
they may turn out. It is poli:e, if courteously
told that the cmnibus is fall, to answer sharp
ly that you must have a seat, and to fix your
eyes immediately on the most bashful man
present, and so force him to give up his seat.
It is polite, when five of you are on one side,
to spread out your dresses, so as to prevent the
sixth passenger from obtaining a seat. It is
polite to put your child next to you, so as to
oocupy two seats, yet, when you get out, to pay
only for yourself. It is polite not to look for
your money till you have stopped the coach,
and then to keep every body waiting for five
minutes, or till you have hunted up the change.
It is polite to pull the strap without cessation
till the impetus of the coach ceases, no matter
how much it may hurt the driver. It is poite
never to have anything less than a gold dollar,
so as to force the driver to change it, though
silver is worth three per cent. It is polite to
bring a basket of marketing in the coaeh with
you; to plant it vigorously on some one scorns;
and to rub the greasj- meat, in passing in and
out, on this one's silk dress, and that one's
cloth overcoat And it is particularly polite
to bring a shad in with you. so that the stench
of it may fill the eoach, and tbe scales be rub
bed off by its flapping against your neighbor,
to the great saving of the labor of youroook.
" But we must not forget what is polite fur
the driver. It is polite f*r him, when the lady
pulls the strap, to stop the coach in the middle
of tbe street, instead of drawing up to the curb
stone. or pausing at a crossing, especially when
the mud is half a foot deep. It Is polite for
him, when a child looses one of its pennies in
the straw, to keep the door tightly closed, till
the tears of the little creature, or the impa
tience of the passengers induce some person to
advance the copper. It is polite always to
stop the eoaeb. when a person hails it, even
though there are twenty inside and four on
the steps behind It i3 polite to race, at top
bpeed, when an opposiiiun is on. It is polite
to give short sixpences in change to passengers,
yet decline to take them for more than five
cents; and it is equally polite to pass split
tickets, yet refuse to receive them again.
Finally, it is polite to allow drunken men to
get in, and turn a deaf ear to all remonstrances
thereupon" ???
? Let Pat alosk for a* Answer "?A few
evenings ago a number of gentlemen were in
company, who proved to be nearly all of for
eign birth, when one "to the manor born" ob
served to another of the same sort" "You and
I, Captain, are the only Americans present."
An Irishman^ sprung up rather indignantly
and said-?'No,sir, we are all Americans"
Another one, however, capped the climax by
a unique speech. He said, addressing himself
to the two, "Yes, :entleaien, we are all Ameri
cans; and what's more than that, you came to
America a-crying, and without a shirt to your
backs, while we came to this blessed land of
liberty a laughing, with clothes on our bodies
and money in our pockets, glad to get rid of
the tyrants that oppressed us in the land of
our birth." A burst of laughter followed this
ebulition of Hibernian feeiing, in whL-h all
joined most heartily?and none more than the
two fritnds so quaintly addressed
Kesisti5u Officers.?Last night a row
oocurred on Capitol Hill, in which a number
of men and women were ergaged. Mr. Thomp
son, one of the guard, entered the house alone
for tbe purpoee of restoring peaee, when he
wa* severely handled by the rioters. Thos
Fi tiger aid, Julia Fitzgerald, and Mary Lynch,
were taken to the guard house, and this morn
ing sect to jail in default of seourity for court.
Co*CEiLi5G a Neoro.?Mrs. Roberta Knox
ville. quite a handsome widow woman, w?g ar
rest*! last night and taken to the guardhouse
for concealing a fugitive glare. The negro wag
found in a chimney in her house, while hi*
shoes and hat were discovered in her bed room'
When in the guard house and she fcund that
she would have to stay all night, she begged to
be confined in the ccll with the negro She
plead hard for an immediate final hearing, and
showed herself to be a very ''strong-minded
woman.' But her efforts failed, and she was
sent to jail to ba finally disposed of.
Ho! for 1'iney Pom.?'To-morrow after
noon at a quarter of four o'clock, the Georee
? Rshiogton leaves her wharf for a trip of two
nights and one day, with fine opportunities
for salt-water bathing, and other health-pro
moting exercises. In view of tho difficulty of
getting accommodations at the Pavilion, on
account of the number boarding there, the
boat supplies eating, drinking, and sleeping
arrangements in abundance. See advertise
ment for particulars, and if you really want
to hare a fine pleasure trip, try this one. in
care of tho experienced and obliging com
mander, the gallant Captain Job Cordon.
No Cholera Here.?One of our local report
ers yesterday remarked in the Star, that
there had been two or three cases of cholera
in Washington this season. Doubtless he
meant cboler* morbus, and not Asiatic
cholera, ot which there has been none in
this city this summer, so far. We make
a correction of thij slip of the pen thus
promptly, in order to prevent misrepresen
tation concerning the health of Washington
from going abroad
Philharuoxic Society.?This society had
a delightful rohearsal last evening, at their
rooms in Temperance Hall. The choruses
from several favorite and popular operas were
sung with much spirit and fine effect A trio
from the opera of Belasario?-Life has no
power"?was most charmingly and sweetly
sang, eliciting tho applause of the fortunate
listeners. Professor Fcertsch presided at tho
piano, and by his brilliant and animated play,
ing added much interest to the exercises of the
Detention of the Cars.?The oars from
Baltimore due at 7 o'clock last evening, did
not come in till near 8 o'olock, having been
detained in Baltimore waiting for the Phila
delphia connection. What occurred to detain
the latter we could not learn, but judge that
the cause was of no serious character.
Committed for Court.?Mrs. Sarah A.
Gordon, who was charged with ill-treating a
colored child, had a hearing yesterday before
Justice Donn. In addition to the Bevere whip
ping*, it was stated by a witness that she fas
tened the child's hands above its head and
left it in that position the entire night. It
turns out that the child was not bound to her,
as she at first stated. She being unable to
give security to appear at Court, the Justice
63nt her to jail.
Robbery.?'Two men last night entered a
cottage on 9th street, expecting, no doubt, to
find something more valuable than merely two
plated candlesticks ! The lady will be better
prepared for a call of the kind, as there will
be "pistols for two," without tho coffee.
Recovered.?We learn that the body of the
young man who was drowned near the Navy
Yard on Wednesday afternoon, was recovered
yesterday morning. It was identified as Mr.
Goorge Bell, who had been sailing in a boat
that afternoon and was drownod by the boat
being capsized by a sudden squall.
Appointment.?His honor the Mayor has
appointed Mr. R M. Downer ns one of the
Auxilliary Gaurd. in place of Hanson Ridgc
way, who resigned to take another place.
Beware of Imposters.?The public aro
cautioned against giving money to a female of
rather email statue, dressed in black, who i3
soliciting money for tho purpose of burying
a poor woman whose husband is dead, leaving
two or moro orphan children. She always
mentions the names of some persons of stand
ing in the community that has contributed.
The case is so urgent as to induce unsuspect
ing persons to give money for a supposed lauda
ble object. The writer of this notice has been
| called upon twico in ono week by the same
female and tho same story told each time
When reminded of the first appeal for charity,
(which was cheerfully responded to) she posi
tively denied, sayiDg it must havo been some
ether person.
Watch Returns.?Julia Bell, freo negress,
vagrant; work house 60 days. Betsy Robert
son, do, do. Julia Fitzgorald, disorderly; jail.
Mary Lynch, resisting officers; do. Robert
Edwards, colored, suspicious circumstances;
dismissed. Chas. McDonald, drunk, lying on
the commons; work house 60 days. Thomas
Fitzgerald, disorderly; jail.
Hot Weather in the Mountain Regions.
A correspondent of the Boston Journal wri
ting from tho town of Bethlehem, N. H ,
h is eighteen miles from the White Moun
tain notch, and nine from the Franconia notch,
says: "The thermometer stood July 4th, at
94; the 20th, at 96; and the 22d, 99 degrees in
the shade. The 22d was the hottest day wo
have had for over ten years."
Drought.?A severe drought is prevailing in
some pai'ts of New Hampshire. The Lebanon
(N. H ) Whig says that "unless terminated
speedily by copious rains it will prove ruin
ous to some kiLda of crops."
Paragraphs similar to the above we find ia
a large number of our exchangee from the
Middle and Western States. ?
Death or a Veteran.?Mr. John Thomas,
Bailmaker, the man (or rather boy) who put
the first stitch in the frigate Constitution's
sails, died at Cohasset, Mass., on the 15th inst.,

Lundy's Lane, and also another one in the
country's service elsewhere.
