National Democratic Association.?The
Association had another meeting last night, at
Parker's Hall, wi:n Capt James Maguire in
the cbair, and Mr. W. M. Wallington acting as
secretary.
The Association transacted no business, ex
cept to admit new members, and W. H. Brea
ton, Wm. Stansbury, H H. Hazard, Sampson
P. Moses, and Samuel Grimes were proposed
and elected.
Mr. Lyons propos-'d Mr Thos. S. McNeiras
a member.
Tbe Chair suggested tbat gentlemen as soon
as elected ought to come up and pay their dues
and sign the constitution. He was opposed to
entertaining propositions for members other
wise.
Mr. Lyons said Mr. McNeir was not present,
and wonld not be ibis evening.
Tbe Cbair then would not entertain tbe mo
tion for bis election.
Mr. Lyons excepted to tbe ruling, and ap
pealed from the decision of the Chair. He held
tbat it had been the custom to elect members
and let tbem pay their dues afterwards. They
bad to be elected before they could sign the
constitution.
Mr. Lyons demanded to have his question
put, and bave the matter tested. [At tbis time
there was some confusion in the ball, and those
present began to gather around the platform.]
Mr. Samnel Mills here stepped forward and
paid 9*.' for Mr. McNeir.
Mr. Lyons.?1 call for a vote on my motion.
The chair?Never mind; it's all settled now,
the money is paid.
Mr. Lyon?No, sir: I object. I want the
question tested [Confusion and cries of ques
tion.]
Voice.?I nominate Mr. John Hodgson.
The chair?Mr. John Hodgson is nominated.
All in favor of his election?
Mr. Lyon.?Mr. President, I call for a vote
on my motion. [Excitement,]
Voice.?I move we adjourn.
Mr. Lyon.?Mr. Chairman, I have the lloor.
1 demand a vote.
Tbe cbair?Ob, that matter is all settled.
rConfusion and noise.] All In favor of Mr.
Hodgson's election say aye: all opposed, no.
Mr. Bodgaon is elected. The gentleman will
please come forward and pay bis two dollars.
[Renewed excitement and confusion, amid
which some one nominated Mr. Robert H.
Boswell ]
The chair.?Is he present 1
The proposer.?No, sir, and he will not be.
I want to test this question.
[Cries of question, question, motions to ad
lourn, Ac, amid rnuc-b excitement.]
Some one wanted to know what constituted
a member.
The cbair decided it was tbe two dollars and
tbat no motion tot membership could be en
tertained unless candidates were present to
pay and sign the constitution.
The decision of the chair was again appealed
from, and the secretary was asked to read the
clause of tbe constitution referring to the sub
ject.
The Secretary read as follows :
"Section 5. Any citizen of the United States
who is a qualiled voter in any of tbe States or
Territories may be proposed for membership
in tbis association at any of its public meetings.
If ne objection is road- be sball be regarded as
having been elected at once. But if objected
to the nomination shall lie over till the next
regular or special meeting, at which time a vote
of three-tourths shall be necessary to elect him.
An initiation fee of two dol'ars in all cases to
complete tbe qualifications for membership.
Corresponding members and honorary mem
bers may also be elected by the Association at
a general or special meetlnir."
Amid a great deal of confusion tbe Cbair
managed at last to mage himself beard, and
put the question thus:
All in lavor of abrogating this article ot the
constitution will say aye.
Voices?No, no, that is not tbe question. It is
whether the chair's construction ot tbe clause
is correct.
Tbe question was finally put and the chair
was not sustained in bis decisions.
Mr. Jobn Boutz was nominated.
The chair.?Come on now with your names;
any can be members whether they pay money
or not.
Mr. Bont? was elected,las were also a Mr.
Busbell and Mr. Henry Turpin, and then tbe
meeting adjourned to take a drink upon the in
vitation of one of the members.
M2KTING in the Fifth Ward.?Last even
ing a meeting of the Demo rats of the Fifth
Ward was held in tbe building at tbe corner of
Pennsylvania avenue and 3d street east, for the
purpose ot forming an association to unite with
ihe National Democratic Association In cele
brating the 17th of September; but owing to
some unknown cause there were but few who
assembled?less than fifty.
The meeting was called to order by Mr. A.
Dodge, on-whose motion Mr. Thompson Van
Riswick was called to the chair, and Mr. B. F.
Beers appointed secretary. Afterfr^ading the
call tor tbe meeting, a committee, composed of
Messrs. A. Dodge, Thomas Wells, and John W.
Meade, were appointed to draft a constitution
lor the asssociation.
Mr. Dodge moved that a committee of five be
appointed to gei up transparencies und make
arrangements for attending tbe meeting.
Mr. Jobn W. Meade mo ved that the committee
have power to collect money from the Demo
crats ot tbe ward.
Some one in tbe back part of the room sug
gested tbat transparencies had better be dis
pensed with, as these were not ordinary times,
and some might be offended. In times past
transparencies were often tbe source of mirth,
but there was no telling, in these days of excite
ment, but tbat a simple inscription on a trans
parency might raise a row, and he expressed
the hope tbat they wonld be abandoned.
Mr. Dodge thought that anything tbey (the
Democracy) might do would insnlt tbe Repub
licans, and there was no necessity for doing
away with transparencies to suit them, because
tbey were as mad ai they could be anyhow,
and he believed that It was as well to die lor a
sheep as a lamb.
Tbe motion to appoint a committee of arrange
ments was adopted, and Messrs. Isaac Beers,
Jobn Doely, Jobn W. Meade, Tboraas Wells,
and John O'Donnel, were appointed; and the
meeting adjourned to Tuesday evening next.

PBOFBP80R Alexander Wolowski has re
opened his rooms for a new class for singing
and pianoforte course. From the established
reputation of Professor Wolowski's new sys
tem of instruction, and particularly the extraor
?linary promptness of bringing out voices and
rerderine them po?-erful and flexible, we feel
no apprehension of his success, particularly as
tbe Professor is opening new singing classes on
very moderate terms, to enable the public in
penerai to be I eueflted by his stiy in our
Metropolis. Professor Wolowski is also ready
to receive those ladies and gentlemen who
wonld like to become artists er professors, and
will give al? .1 harmony lessona. His residence
is No. 4P5 E street, between Pennsvlvania
avenue and ICth street, above J. N. Callan's
Drug Store. _
Excitement at the Tneater.?At Ford's
Theater, last night, after a round of applanse
had been given to Mr Florence, he stepped
forward and requested the audience to ??give
Oen. Sherman aronnd.as news had just been
received tbat be had entered Atlanta with his
victorious army." The audience immediately
rose, and cheered so vociferously that some
time elapsed before the play could proceed.
The enthusiasm was so great that many left the
house, too much excited at the glorious news
to sit still to witness the remainder of the per
formance.
Pic-Nic on Monday.?On Monday next (af
ternoon and evening) tbe Osage Tribe of the
order of Red Men, will give a pic-nic at 7th
street Park. The committee is an excellent
one and tbeir names are a sufficient guaran
tee that no pains will be spared to make the
entertainment a most delightful one.
Closed.?A cotemporary says that the
Smithsonian library will be closed for a month
while the librarian is ?" absent from the city."
It might aa well be permanently closed for all
the use it is to the public at large.
