A Beautiful Store ?Hilbus k Hits have
opened their new and beautiful muiic store in
the " Star Buildings," on the corner of Penn
sylvania avenue and Eleventh street. It is
handsomely fitted up, having a front built by
Baldwin A Brothers in imitation ef brown
stone, with large French piste glass in the
windows and doors, which gives the exterior
a fine appearance. The oounters, shelves, and
wood work of the interior are of rose-wood
color, highly polished and tastefully orna
mented by William B. Tode A Brother. The
interior is beautifully adorned by handsomely
frescoed paper,and busts and engravings of the
most eminent musicians and composers. The
baok windows are beautifully curtained, and
the whole of the large floor covered with Brus
sels carpet from the warehouse of Claggett &
bod son. The back part of the store is orna
mented by an immense mirror from the store
house of Francis Lamb, Esq. The gas fixtures
have been neatly and substantially put up by
workmen from the Eagle Works of Captain
Keese. Upon the whole, we do not remember
having seen a more handsome store than this.
Messrs. Hilbus 4 Uitz keep the only exclu
sive music store in Washington. They keep
on hand the best musical publications and
musical instruments in the country. Their
establishment is a credit to Washington.
Benefit or the Franklin Fire Cokpant.
At the National Theatre, on Thursday evening
last, through the courtesy and liberality of
Mr. George Kunkel, manager of Eunkel's
'Nightingale Opera Troupe, a complimentary
btBtftt was tendered to the Franklin Company
?one of the most efficient fire organisations in
our midst?which came off in a manner high
ly satisfactory to all concerned, and from which
the company realized some thirty or forty
dollars. Since that time, the President has
received the following, which speaks for itself:
Washington, Dec. 8,1854.
Dear Sir: Mr Winder, the proprietor of the
National Theatre, being desirious of testifying
his appreciation of the useful, arduous, and
disinterested labors of the firemen, directed
me, when he left the city, to hand you, in his
behalf, twenty-five dollars towards the benefit
of the Franklin Fire Company, which came off
at the theatre last night. Enclosed please
find a check for that amount.
Very respectfully, yeur obedient servant,
Chas. H. Winder.
C. J. Canfield, Esq ,
President Franklin Fire Company.
This is as it should be. We believe there
is no class of our citizens who deserve better
of the community than our firemen; and we
rejoice whenever we see a spirit manifested
on the part of the public to encourage them.
The company have held a meeting and adopt
ed a series of resolutions thanking Mr. Winder
for bis liberal donation.

Rxv. Charles A Davis.?We have been
informed that Mr. Davis has resigned his ap
pointment as a clerk in the General Land
Office, and has been received into the Virginia
Annual Conference of the Methodist Episco
pal Church South. Mr. D has been ap
pointed to the charge of Trinity Church in
the city of Richmond, Va. Mr D. is a native
of this city where he is well known and highly
esteemed He has been for many years the
President of the Board of Commi.sioners of
the Washington Asylum and the Secretary of
the Trustees of Publio Schools. He is an elo
quent divine, and will, beyond doubt, prove
a useful minister.
As Mr. Davis is a member of our Board of
Councilmen, ho, of course, resigns his seat;
whieh creates a vacancy in the Board.
Western Wilds.?The first exhibition of
Stanley's Western Wilds, since its return to
this city, takes place to-night, at Odd Fellows'
Hall. Though its former exhibitions here
were attended by crowds, yet cr A?ds are still
desirous to see it, as well those who were be
fore thus gratified as those who had not the
opportunity, for, unlike most other panoramas,
this will bear frequent looking at. The scenes
were all carefully painted on the spot, by an
artist eminent in such representations Mem
bers of Congress will be interested, as the pan
orama shows the nature of the country through
which the Northern Railroad route to the Pa
cific is destined to pass.
Foot Race against Tub.?On Saturday
last a race was run, on Twelfth street, in the
Seventh Ward, against time, by a person living
in the vicinity, which brought together quite
a company of young people to see the sport.
We were informed by one of the jadges that
the race was for a bet of $30 ; the runner to
win if he ran one hundred yards in ten sec
onds. The race was not accomplished in time
?so the judges decided?but as there appears
to be some difference of opinion about it, we
shall leave the interested to settle the matter.
There was a large amount in side bets.
Corn Songs?The Captain of the Guard in
forms us that several parties of young gentle
men, who bear respectable characters, were
out late last night singing "corn songs," and
making night hideous in the Seventh Ward.
Another party murdered a fishing song in the
First Ward, at a late hour, singing in this
"i tliought I hi aril John Mollis t-ay?
Wind away, boy*, wind away;
You catch uo fi?h you get no pay?
Wiiiii away, boys, wind away."
If they are caught at this sport again, they
will certainly be "jugged." Look out, boys!
Pcnished at last ?Last eight the ohief of
the police with a number of officers and aux
iliary guards made a descent upon the gang
that usually congregates in front of Asbury
Chapel, a church belonging to a society of
colored Methodists. These people have been
told of the risk they were running by their
behavior, but they would neither take advice
from the churoh nor the police. The result is
that their fun has cost them dearly. It's an
old saying that "they who dance must pay the
Travel over the Long BriAgr.?An old
friend of the Star having noticed the great
number of vehicles ef various kinds that pa?s
over the Long Bridge daily, took upon himself
to count the load3 of wood that passed on Sat
urday last. The result of bis count was one
hundred and one loads. This was a small
day with our country friends, usually the num
ber is much larger. The provision carts and
wagons that come to Washington by this route,
we are told, would nearly double this count.
A Naw Suction.?We learn that the Frank
lin tire Company will receive from Baltimore
to morrow morning, their new suction, recently
built by Ives, of that place. At two o'clock,
p. m , the Franklin have resolved to give
thair new " mersheen" a trial at the space in
front of the Bank of Washington. His Honor
the Mayor, the Boards of Aldermen and Com
mon Councils, have been invited, and are ex
pected to be present on the occasion.

is drawing large numbers to see it, at the ex
hibition room, 41 street, who express them
selves highly delighted with their visits.

Dowling, well known to most of the old cor-,

his friends we state that he died in the In
firmary, after a painful illness, and was
buried on Saturday last.
A Call Accepted.?The Rev. Mr. Cum
mings, of Richmond, Va., has resigned the
rectorship of St. James's ohurch in that oity,
and aecepted a call in this city.

Ice breakers have been at work upon our |
Canal ever since Saturday morning, and hopes
are entertained that the ice has been sufficient
ly broken to permit a large number of boats
laden with coal, floor, Ac., that were detained
upon the eight mile level and at other points,
to reach our market either to-day or to-mor
ro v. The weather has moderated very much,
and is this morning comparatively mild, and
the ice thawing quite rapidly.
Another one of those disgraceful exhibitions,
a stone battle, between a party of youths of
Georgetown and Washington, came off yester
day afternoon at the Rook Creek or Bridge
street bridge. Is there no means that can be
applied to break up these disgraceful scenes
90 annoying and dangerous to passers by. We
learn also that a fight occurred near the same
plape, about 8 o'clook, yesterday evening, in
which knives were used, and some of the par
ties were badly out
Ho for New York !?Bollard's excursion
starts (at Forrest Hall) this evening at 7i .
o'clock. Almost every one in our city intends |
visiting this wonderful work of art. We be
speak for him a crowded auditory.
We saw this morning the model of an in
vention, by Mr. Henry Burrows, for oleansing
wheat of garlic. If this invention answers
the purpose for which it is intended, it cer
tainly will be of inestimable value to the
manufacturers of flour.
In the absence of a supply of fiour in our
market, the last steamer's news has had no
effeot upon the prices, which are steady at
$3.50 for superfine and $8.75 for extra brands.
Owing to the closing of navigation the supply
of all kinds of grain is very limited. Wheat,
$1.80a$1.85 for red, $1.85a$l.90 for white; a
