All kinds of Fourth of July fire works have been cheap this year, and probably never before was as much powder burned in this locality. The cannon crackers were bigger and louder than ever before, the "devil shooters" more numerous and more devilish, the candles and rocketb of later and Improved patterns, while the Chine? have brought on a tremendous noisy invention and some one has fouud a method of throwing colored lights by the bushel. It only re mains for a genius to furnish a machine that will show in brilliant colors the sound waves of "Yankee Doodle," "America," etc , while the music floats through the air as each wave glows in fire.

Trum the moment the cable caught lire a vollyof sounds like the firing in the thickest battle broke loose. To add to this, bunches of tbfse new-fangled Chinese crackers were tossed upon the street. The crowd in creased and danced among the zig-zagging fire that spurted first from one side, then from another. The heathens in the second story windows jumpd back and forth and chattered amid a constant rain of firo that lit up weirdly their strange features and grotesque garb At the same time there was a constant batting or echoes from the tall buddings near which the Chinese laundry opposite poured forth rockets, fire ballsand crackerfe, and som enterprising American ontlie next square was hurling colored lights into the air by the cart load AT THE MONUMENTAL SHAFT.

Tlie one hundred and nineteenth anni versary of the birth of the American Re public was duly celebrated in Washington yesterday Patriotic societies and Young America vied with each other in tlie effort to keep green the memory of the lleto liitionary fathers, and while powder was burned upon the one hand, there was an equally enthusiastic greeting upon the other from gifted orators and bands of music asembled to do homage to the freest uation on the globo The regular programme, as heretofore published in The Times, called for an old tune celebration by the two societies who trace the genealogy of their mcmber&iup back to Valley Forge, Ticonderoga, and the Continental Congress, to say nothing of Blinker Hill; aud a due observance, also, by the organization of the Oldest In linbitauts, besides the exercises had uuder other auspices. It maybe said Uiat all that was advertised came to pass ou schedule tune MARCH TO THE MONUMENT. Marshaled under the direction of Mr Albion K. Fams and under the escort of the "Washington Light Infantry, numbering eighty men, the Patriotic Sons of the Revolution and Its companion society, the Sons of the American Revolution, marched from Hie Arlington Hotel to the "Washington monument to paj due tribute, according to programme, to the day and occasion. Tlie j had the Marine Band at their head, and were accompanied by representatives of the Society of Hie Cincinnati and or the Society of the Colonial "Wais, re spectively. At the monument other so cieties, including tlie lady auxiliary or ganizations, were assembled. There were many distinguished people in line, including Admiral Greer, Gen. D T. Stanley, Gen. T C. A'lccent, Gen II. G. Gib-jon, Gen. Stanton, and Gen Breckin ridge, and not of least consideration in the list was the venerable George "Wash ington Ball, a lineal descendant of the Father of His Country, whose enfeebled condition prevented him from taking his place jn the ranks on foot, bur who could not forego the pleasure of participation in the 119th event. The Sonb were all in civilian dress, but each wore upon his coat lapel the insignia of the society he represented, and a mam moth edition of "Old Glory" was borne at the head of the line. They marched from the Arlington to the Monument grounds in as straight a course as could be (elected, and but little time was consumed in the transfer, tho band, meanwhile, discoursing the standard American airs. IMPRESSIVE CEREMONIES. The programme previously prepared was duly observed, including the colonial salute by Battery A, of the National Guard. The Declaration of Independence was read, ac cording to the time-honored custom, by Mr. Harry Bulkley, and eloquent, able addreses were delivered by Mr. Henry E. Davis, Gen. Breckinridge, and Hon. John Goodo, these being preceded by a Fpinted speech by Mr. Ernest "Wilkinson, the selected chairman of tlie committee of arrangements. Gen. Joseph C. Breckinridge was chosen to preside, and upon taking charge spoke in his characteristically eloquent way of the work which the two societies arc Lot only seeking to accomplish, but which they are actually accomplishing in foster ing patriotism and love of country.

The Oldest Inhabitants, true to their traditions and customs, met in their rooms at the Corcoran Building, nnd observed a programme which, though brief, was pa triotic throughout, and equal to the day and occasion. The exeicises opened with an address by President Marbury, included the singing of "America" and "Auld Lang Syne," and were closed with an oraUon by Capt. E It McKean. President Marbury referred to the events of the past 3 ear, recalled briefly those who had been with-them at the lastanminl gath ering, but who had since passed beyond the mystic vale, and dealt in reminiscences and business details. The president introduced the speaker of the day, Capt. McKean, whose appear ance was warmly applauded. The speaker introduced an analogy between the birth of the Savior and the birth of the Itepublic. He said "The birth of Christ nearly nineteen hundred years ago heralded 'peace on earth, good will to men;' the birth of the republic, one hundred and iinetecn jcars ago, ex emplified the same beneficent idea Christ recogni7ed and taught the individuality of man; this republic is the only government on earth thatrecognizesthatsaineindividunlity. "Truth and justice with the 01 en Bible constituted the corner-stone of liLerty. Tlio open Bible aud popular education go .hand in hand, and are the bulwai ks of the repub lic. We should cherish both with jealous care." Capt. McKean advocated the abolition or the United States Senate and the electoi al college. He said the time was once when the people were proud or the Senate, and sent their best men to it as J heir representatives; but now it was different. He described that body as the hot-bed of corruption, aud wlt'i a few exceptions its members are elected because thej have more mcjnej than charac ter, or to look after trusts or combines. The speaker thought this country should interfere in behalf of Cuba, and he would have one of the admirals of the navy to pJant th" Stars and StnpasonMoro Cast lean tkn Cuba under tho sheltering wmgs of the "United Stales. Col. J. M. Cutt3 read the declaration st independence, to which the society listened with interest. The society re-elected its officers, as fol lows: President, John Marbury; vice presi dents, J. D. Hendley, C. W. Bennett, J. S. Kern, T. II. Langley, Jnines Pilling, B. C. Wright, JosephPrather.F. W.Brandenburg, J.W Clark, William Beron.J.H. Thompson, N. D. Lnrnor; recording secretary, J. M. Cults; corresponding secretary, J. T. Howard; treasurer, Robert Ball, marshal, J. A. Wmeberger. The vacancy in the list of vice presidents, occasioned by the death of Col.

The Tnkoma Park patriots celebrated the Fourth on a magnificent scale Under the nuspicies of the Public Welfare Asso ciation a fine programme was prepared, and the skillful manner in which it was earned out reflected great credit on all concerned. The exercises opened nt 10 o'clock in the morning with prajer by the Rev. John Van Ness". Major S S.

The officer who had labonou-Jj- entered the common-placeeventsand occurrcncesof his life, whicll are now full of interest to us. was in Sullivan's brigade and stationed near the banks of the Susquehanna.

Ex Major Thomas R. Martin and Marion Dorian, esq , made splendid addresses, dwelling on the importance of inculcating patriotic principles in the nimds of the children. This finished the regular programme, but tho crowd broke out into cries for Founder B. II. Warner, and after some little skirmishing this gentleman was found, and, blushing like a school girl, led to the platform by two strong, stalwart Kensingtonians He had his revenge, how ever, for it happened that the two Con ductors were candidates for town offices, and Mr. Warner began such a fusilade of fun and nonsense upon these and a few other local lights that they were kept 1 biinv hidnur behind umbrellas and tree trunks, much to the amusement of their friends. SCORED THEM UNMERCIFULLY. Finally, after one or two atrociously hard lulling lo c licks, these persons beat a precipitate retreat, while Mr Warner, after a few moments of sober, sensible talk, was conducted in Lonor to his seat in the improvised amphitheater. The woods rang with tlie inspiriting notes of martial music rendered bv Donch's orchestra. One of the most enjoyable features of the programme was contrib uted by the veteran actor, Charles B. Hanford, who drew inspiration from the beautj of the place and recited, as he never did before, that masterpiece bj Drake, "The American Flag." The Rev. Jaiues T Marshall, who is a direct descendant or BeUej Ross, who fashioned with her own plump fingers the first Stars and Stripes, was introduced by Mr "Warner A magnificent pj rotechnic display, which the residents of Kensington boast of as surpa&smg anj thing ever seen in the Dis trict, took place at night.

The Veteran Volunteer Firemen cele brated the Fourth in the usual quiet way at the headquarters, cornor U nnd Nineteenth streets northwest. The programme was the same as that carried out on many sim ilar occasions, and consisted of an informal gathenng of the old-timera, who spent the morning in an interchange of high water throwing stories. The chief object of interest and attrac tion yesterday was the old bell, which in years gone by hungin the Northern Liberties engine house. It belonged to old Columbia No 1 engine,and was loaned tlio Veterans by tlie Disfuct Commissioners a short time ago The old hand engino ,too, is. a cunositj', but it is cared lor now just as well as in tlie dajs when it was their great est pitde The old machine is kept m first class order aud as. bright as a silver dollar. Since the disbanding of the volunteers in 3 8G4: the old engine was sold in tho South. Accidentally Mr. James Reagan came across, it about three j-ears ago and it was purchased for the Vetera us. Among the mosthighlj--prl7.edandgreatly cherished relics of the old times at head quarters are the clothes worn bj Berrfamin Greenough. who was run over and killed by the engine in 1854, while on his way to a fire.
