Baf.timore, July 6.—1 he glorious anniversa
ry of the birtli of freedom, was announced in Bal
timore at day-break by the ringing of bells, firing
of cannon and o'her testimonies of joy and grati
tude. The sound of the first gun was a signal for
the display of the flags from (he shipping and til
the public places in and about the city. A -ree.tblv
to the arrangements of the committee appointed on
| the occasion, the citizens of all ages, sexes a ,d con
ditions, assembled at an early hour of the morning
in the area in fieri! of the riuatre, Holliday street*
where suitable arrangements hachbeen made fo. con
ducting the interesting ceremonies of '.he law , i,,.
decorations of the platfoim or st-.ge which Ld been
some days previously erected in front ol the Thea
tre, were arranged iftcr 12 o’clock on Sunday night,
so that Monday morning, the fourth of July pre
sented a work apparently of magic. E.ght lo*t<
pilasters supported an entablature of sixty feet iii
length ; in the centre of which list, raised upon
i pinnelled blocking, was plac ed an eagle, with 'he
colours of the United States, arranged after the
fashion of rays from either side, the whole forming
a beautiful and appropria'e military trophy. Deep
sunken pannels in the pilasters contained the fasces
and bet ween the neck, mouldings and the capitaU
were civic wreaths. The pilasters were placet!
double, and over each pair, the bust of Washing
ton, Lafayette, Adams, or Jackson broke
the sameness of the upper part of the entablature,
and were admirably relieved against the theatie be
hind. Oier the centre opening was the motto,
“ Our Country, right or wrong!" inscribed in a
sunken pannel; and to the right of it was inscrilted
in similar characters, “ The Land of the Free ”
and to the left, “ The Home of the Brave." In
deed the general effect was striking in the highest
degree, and the talent and industry of the commit
tee superintending the erection of the platform and
the arrangements of the decorations, cannot be toe
highly praised.
In front of the Theatre tavern, adjoining was
I painting of the Battle of a North Point, decorated
with wreaths of flowers.
Upon the platform scats were placed for tht
accommodation of those whom the committee hat
invited to be present on the occasion. This invi
tation embraced the Officers and Soldiers of tin
Revolutionary War, and the members of the Soci
' ty of Cincinnati; the Major General and Brigadiei
Generals of the Third Division and their respectivi
Staffs; Field and S’affOfficers of the Militia of Bal
timore engaged in the late war, and Otficers ant
’ Soldiers who were wounded in the defence o
1 Baltimore; the United States’ civil, naval an<
military Officers; Otficers, civil, naval and inilitar’
! of foreign states: civil and YTilitarv Ofln A.
| state of Maryland; Members of Congress and o
; the state Legislature; Judge of the several Courts
'(Mayor and City Council; Reverend Clergy an<
aged Citizens; the Regents and Professors of tin
University of Maryland
In the rear of the rentre of the platform, wa:
’ stationed the excellent band of music attached tr
' Fort M’Henry, by whom a number of p.ilriotii
airs were performed.
. ’rite ceremonies of the day were opened by i
Prayer to the Throne of Grade, by the Reverent
| S. Eecleston, abounding in eloquent and appropri
ate sentiments, and delivered with all the fervoi
and piety of the Christian and the patriot.
The duty of reading the Declaration of Indepen
dence, was performed in a highly creditable mannci
! by Win. F. Small, E>q. who prefaced the reading
by some excellent introductory remarks.
The Orator of the day, Peter H. Cruse, E-qr.
j then arose and delivered an address fraught with
talent, eloquence and patriotism, and listened to
with delight by all who had the pleasure ot'being
; within the sound of his voice. Indeed the per
1 formances of all the gentlemen were worthy oi
themselves— worthy of the great occasion which
called them forth; and we are gratified to learn thai
the committee have applied for copies of tht
Prayer and Addresses, for the purpose of pubiica
t ion.
At eleven o’clock several of ihe Churches werr
opened for Divine Worship, and were filled by
those who preferred to observe the day by rcligioii
thanksgiving end praise. A number ol military
corps and private parties of citizens dined together,
•nd testified their feeli ips by the utterance of ap
propriate toasts and sentiments. In the evening w<
observed that the Museum was brilliantly and taste
fully illuminated, and decorated with a transparent
painti.-g of Washington.
W e regret to be obliged to note a melancholy
accident which occurred during thffday. A pro
mising young man named William Rust, met witl
an untimely death by accidentally falling into th«
river from a boat—he was drowned notwithetnndiiq
the utmost exertions were made to leecue him.

Washington, July 6.—The anniversary o

with much glee on Monday last, by public ceremo

different places in the city and i>s environs.

which were four and twenty states, repre-ented by
so many pretty femMe scliol rs, which formed part
ot the procession, being followed in it by his male
scholars, some of them yaimed and habited as the

On arriving at and en'ering the Represent, lives*

Alter the ceremonies at theCcpi’ol, the mansion
of the President was brown wide cm for the
reception of those whom friendship, re pect, or
curiosity, attracted thither. An immense con

Alexandria, D. C. July 6.—Considering the
verv o..ott time which was atfoidcd tie p trioiic
“ young men” w ho undertook, w ith such praise
worthy alacrity, to make the ncrevsary arrange
ments, the Fourth ot July has seidoin been observ
ed with as much credit to our town as on Mo dav.
Tlie young men determined at their meeting, held
befoie, on a public procession, and selected a highly
respectable commit tee of arrangements ior tht pur
pose ot giving invitations to the different sociriics,
and w hich were generally complied wi h m a high
ly creditable manner; and to the respectable and
patriotic officers and members of the" Hibernian
Society," particularly, much credit is due lor their
attention and display on the occasion—more espe
cially too as it has been formed but very little over
a year. The Washington Society, composed of
the oldest and u ost worthy of our inhabitants urr
etl out well, as usual, and claim, too, the thanks of
their routhful friends for their polite compliance oa
the occasion.
Early in the morning, capt. Williams, with
Ins accustomed promptitude, announced irom the
mou h of his “ big guns,” over old Potomac’s bo
som, that radiated Sol was smiling in all hism des’y
upon the Fiftieth Anniversary of American In
A li.tle after tlie appointed hour the procession
began to form; and soon moved in ihe prescribed
order up Cameron street to Washington street, down
Washington to King street, down King to Pi;t
street, thence to S'. Paul's church.
As the procession moved under the splendid
arch, erected, at the time, in honor of Lafayette’s
visit to our town, and which still stands another
evidence of the patriotic spirit of tlie youth of our
place, the numerous and excellent band ol music at
tached to the military struck up, in handsome style,
the enlivening aid patriotic air of” Hail Columbia.*'
At church, utter such of the procession and the
military as could be conveniently accommodated had
entered, the itev. E. Harrison commenced the
performances by a very appropriate and pathetic
I prayer. Edit. It. Belcher,esq. then re ,d, in an
f audible tone, the Declaration of Independence,
I which he prefaced with a few pertinent and sensi
■ ble remarks. Franck Pcvmv .... _
• rose and delivered, in a neat and animated style, a
I moderate and creditable oration. The whole was
; concluded by a short prayer from the Rev. Dr
I WiLMr.it—previous to which a collection v/h*
■ made for the benefit of the Colonization Society;
and wc will digress a little here from our narrative
i just to observe, that we cannot conceive of a wiser
. plan for promoting the great national object in view
: than this. Surely, when we are rejoicing and
) offering up prayers for our own happiness, is the
i j meet >irne that we should manifest our charity fer
I I an unfortunate and degraded specie* of our rare.
| The procession returned from church in the order
in which it moved.
After the procession had dispersed, the “ L i
Fayette Infantry” under capt. Jamikson, accom
panied by the band, escorted the mayor, the orator
the reader of the Declaration of Independence and
the committee of arrangement* to Hroom Latin a
beau.tful wooded spot in the vicinity of the town
and on an elevated brow of the Potomac, where a
dinner was prepared for the occasion.
Several other dinners were given, at which, ns it
ever should be, on this day, nought else but hilarity
and harmony prevailed. *
The committee of arrangement who acted on the
ceremonies of the day, were Jacob .Morgan, P.
