W ASM NGTON OlTT AND TmIKOS. Th? 44 dlstaU ces," which hare ho loug characterized Wusbingtou us " magnificent," arc fast fading away, for although the public buildings remain in the same positions, and of course the relative distance of each is pre cisely the same it ever was, such has beeu the march of improvement, that the 44 barren wastes" which comprised the " space between" iu the time of John Randolph, and which 44 lent enchantment to the vie .v," have been swallowed up. The east and the west ends hare approached each other, and though standing upon the steps of the Capi tol, and looking up the broad Avenue towards the President's Mansion, the beholder is compelled to exclaim 44 magnificent," it is not the 44 distance," alone which enehauts his view, but the order, cleanliness, licauty, and harmony which every where prevail. Pennsylvania avenue is, without doubt, Che noblest thoroughfare in the world, and Washing ton city I toasts one for each of the States of the Union, equally grand, and destined to be come equally beautiful. Maryland avenue, south of the Tanai, already contests the palm with the former, and certainly, as a residence, is much to be preferred. The 41 magnificent" appropriations which have from time to time beeu made by Congress for erecting, extending and improving the public buildings, and for beautifying and ornamenting the public park", reservations and avenues, have given impulse to private capitalists and induced them to employ their surplus capital in the purchaae and improvement of property all over the city, so that with the munificence of the United States on the one hand, and the enterprise oi citizens on the other, the Metropolis of the American nation, may be said to be looking forward to, and approaching the distinguished destiny marked out for her by her great founder, the lather of the Republic. The great and absorbing subject uow, is the extra session of Congress, aud the object for which members were fo summarily summoned together ugain, after a session of nearly nine months. important as is the passage of the bill providing for the support of the Army, and disastrous as would be the result of its failure, according to the message oi President Pierce, upon the officers and Boldiers, and upon residents of the frontier towns, the possibility, not to say probability, of such an ??vent, does not fright our citizens from their pro priety ; on the contrary, they appear to be in the full enjoyment of all their faculties, and manifest, a disposition to make the most of them. After the bluster of the previous day, the calm of yesterday wns the more' appreciable, and the ladies who were confined ou that day appeared in full regalia upon the Avenue, in the public grounds, and in the galleries of the two Houses of Congress. No event occurred to mar the harmony or to dis turb the peace of the city. The gentlemanly Chief of Police, whom we visit daily, informed that there had been no occasion for arrests, and ex pressed his gratification thereat, iu which we most heartily joined him. Telegr^phir despatches have been received by Northern members of Congress encouraging them to stand firm by the Kansas restriction bill. Grand Kkpi'ksion.?Central Lodge No. 1, Inde pendent Order of Odd Fellows, gives its first ex cursion to the White House on Monday next. This Order is one of the most useful and noble institu tions in this Christian land. It has done much to ward the amelioration of the condition of man. It. has cherished the widow, educated the orphan, relieved the wants of the needy, succored the dis tressed, and brought happiness and content to many a checrless fireside. It has caused the heart, of the widow to rejoice, in that it has saved their children from the iufluence of vicious example, and placed them in positions of usefulness, and in the road to honor and distinction. Verily, a gen eration shall rise up and call her blessed. Odd Fellows are Roing to give an excursion on Monday. See advertisement. Parcelmno ore thk Ofkicks.?Wo are inform ed that the Fremountebanks of this city are already distributing the offices among themselves.

French considers the Marshals-hip as safe for himself, and Clepliane and Goodloe will be thankful for small favors. Saiuiatii School Union.?The next regular meeting of the Island Sunday School Union, will be held in the Sixth Church, corner of Maryland avenue and Sixth street, on the third Monday eve ning in September, the 15th of that month. On this occasion, the following hymn will be sung by all the schools: OUlt.DRKX's UOSANNA. Children of Jerusalem Sane the praise of Jesus' name; Children, loo, of later days, Join to sing the Saviour's praise. Chorus?Hark! hark! hark! While infant voicei Bing, Loud hosannaa to our king. We have often heard and read What the royal psalmist'said: Babes and sucklings' artless lays, Shall proclaim the Saviour's praise. Chorus?Hark! Ac.
