Washisgios at Day Break.?Rise from your
couches, ye sluggards ; forth on a flue morning
and look at your city, while its inhabitants sire
nearly all asleep. Far away in the east tlie horizon
is colored with a reddish hue from the suu " behind
tlie scenes," casting a glow upon the cb uds above,
the trees and houses and public buildings below,
which i* truly grand. But who is up at this time to
sec this sublime scene. Scarcely one person is me!
in a Ion; walk, and he (for never is it a woman) is
plodding on to his labor. You look at the dv*-'Dings
to see if there is any life in them. The *iate:^
mansion is cold and checrlcss, but turn your eyes to
tt.e lowly cot, and smoke is miking its lively way
up mtc the sombre clouds. The ?' gude wife" i*
i ooking breakfast for her husband, so that lie m y
begin ni? work in time; and if you peer into tin
cabin yon will see some happy, healthy children,
j laying about the floor, perhaps i faithful dog .their
?' boon companion.'' That early .-moke is an un
erring sign ot industry; while its absence, be it in
hall or hovel, is significant of tlie reverse. To tlie
westwaril all is darkness, or what might be called
mori ing twiliebt; to the north, the saw - ; to tlie
sonth,a few streaks of light; but to the east, a rl-n^i
Klorv. Altogether the surrounding view isni?st i.i
winii);, while the Iitrli, bracing breeze, stirs out's
Hood and maker- the limbs move with a vigorous
ai.d health-promoting in -uon, while the xppetn
begins to sharpen, l^eseiitly the rays of the mn
Uightiy lightens the whole sky, the eastern dome ol
the Cajitol brightens, and, when
M Yonder comes the glorious king of day
Rejoicing in the east,"
and So! fully appears, that same side of the Capitol
is turned into silver. A few persons begir. to move
ab'>?t Ihe smoke rites from the lordly mansions,
carts, wagon*, and ot er *ehicles rumble through
tlie streets, you return with lively step, alter taking ;
a cool crangh* of water at the Capitol fountain, and
l?w?k over tlie awakening city, and then a be l
steak, a broiled chicken, a bowl ot coffee, *.c., Stc , |
are, in tlie polite language ot the day, ?? not hard to i
take."
Fi jueal o? a Firf.xam.?Ye?terday afternoon
the Northern Liberties and Franklin Fire Cotnpa
nies followed to the grave the remains of Alexander
Forrest, late an oflieer of the flr?t named company,
the meuibers ui which turned out in immense iiuni
bers to pay the last token of respect to liis memory.
The Franklin also paraded largely, and many friends
of the deceased, not firemen, fi led u^the lengthy
cortep . Koefien's tmnd was engaged for the occa
sion, and played appropriate strains in their usual
talented manner. The procession moved through
the Aver ue to the Congressional Cemetery, where
the bo<ly was interred with solemn ceremonies, the
Kev. A. (5 Corf?thers, of the Fifth Presbyterian
f hurch, cfficiating. Tlie li? arse was attended by
eight pall hearers, dressed in the uniform of tin
fii rthern Liberties.and the procession was inch je
of Messrs. Ji hn Goj'dard, Jr., and E. G. F.vans.
Marshals, also m the Northern l-iberties diess. The
Itanners were in ne umin^, and altogether ihe pro
resnitn madf an imposing appearance. Ketumin"
the Northern Liberties escorted the Franklin mem
bers to their engine house, soon alter which boili
companies were dismissed.
Make a Note or it.? Persons going to Baltimore
had as well " make a note of it," that ou iandmg
l*o?n the car* they wiil find " Murphy's New De|Mii
House," near by, where a short snack may be had
when iu a hurry, and a good meal at leisure. Hie
eatings. ?.<?., are of ihe best, but his sugar ?ured

American Hotel. ,
Tho Hon. Wni Wilkins was elected Presi
dent, aud on his taking the chair he proceeded
to speak for more than an hour, sustaining the
principles of the Nebraska bill, and glorifying
the action ol the Government in the Greytnwn
affair. He denounced in burning language
I the doctrine8 of the K> ow Nothings, and said
thiir success would bring disgrace atid ruiu
u^on Ihq country. His remarks were given'
with much warmth; and copluuiing in an elo- ;
queat strain he said, the Federal and State
constitution guarantee civil sod religious lib
erty He then referred to the patriotic eer
viees ?f foreigners in tbe war of the reiOflCon,
and in the late war with Mexioo. He argued
that if the Know Nothing* succeeded. no reli
gious sect would be safe?the next attar the
Catholic the Hebrew would be proscribed, than
probably, tbe Unitarians, and following them
the Methodist*, and Qod only know* who next.
No ordinary crisis, he said, with hi* age and
his infirmities would have brought him before
the people; but his devotion to the institutions
and the welfare of his country imperatively
demanded of bim that be should raise hie
feeble voice against such dangerous and ini
quitous principles as were proclaimed by tbasa
calling themselves Know Nothings.
The venerable speaker, completely exhaust
e i closed his sveech amidst the moet enthus!
a.tio and deafening cheers.
Judge Sbaler followed after him. and ia now

others are j et to speak.

?M-eech defining his position, and oppose 1 tbe
Nebraska iniquity and other acta of President
i'lerce s administration The oonetitution he
made bis platfoitn. and he would accord to
every one the liberty of worshiping according
to the dictates of his own conscience; and
whilst he yielded this in all sincerity toothers,
he c! ai mod the same right for himself. He re
pelled the slanders Uiade against him which
asserted that his opinions were contrary tq the
ris^hts guaranteed by the constitution, and
concluded by opposing any division of the
school fund.
The meeting, after being addressed by other
?peakers, adopted strong anti-Nebraska res
olutions. 7
