This invocation, from the songs of Morris, was said and sung, was echoed and re-ecboed around the corner of Fourteenth street and Pennsylvania arenue yesterday afternoon, with an unwonted depth of feeling. The woodman appealed to was busily engaged In cutting down In his prime, and with all his leafy honors clinging to him, the noble and symmetrical sycamore that has, for so long sheltered the cullers at the popular estab Ushmcnt of Cozzesa, the Wine Merchant, and Ki dwell, tho Chemist, from the sum mer's sun. The woodman, in obedience to tho orders of officials who are straightening and improving our thoroughfares, turned n deaf ear to all appeals. In vain was Mo Rim sentimental sung, " Woodman, spare that tree'" chanted In all its variations. The more they begged huu to "spare," the more ten-Btrikes he made upon tho base of tho big sycamore, severing root after root, below the surface of the ground which had been digged away, until it Ml with a crash that was re sponded to with a sigh by all who witnessed the seeming sacrilege. Some said tho noblo treo uttered a groan as the last ligament that bound it to tho earth was sobered, but, be this as H may, we are assured that lost night, during the pauses f ne raD' which wept fitfully upon its J.Tlntf leaves, It was heard to soliloquise as follows' so li Log vr AIm ' alas ' Is not tay fate c. cruel one ? I care not for the threadbare jokes of stupid witlings who, In passing, tell me to pack up my trunk and leate, who ask derisively why I didn't barl at the fellow who felled me, who cry out, twig the old button-ball chap guess he wont biaack out quite so proudly as he has done ' "No, I do not feci cut up by the feeble sarcasm of siuh sap heads Tho only toler ably willy thing I heard from them all was a remark of Coikns', that I could now af ford to give Bkal IIii kxih a chip, But I feel that my fate is a hard one.

And It was my only am bltton to extend my umbrage, to magnify my shade through many years for the benefit of the cltlsens of the capital. Oh Washing ton ' Washington ' that gohbleth the pro flip, and fleeceth those that are sent unto thee, have I not gathered thy children beneath my wings' But ye hare laid me low me of whom the questton was never axe-ed "Why cumbereth he the ground V 'I could give many Interesting reminis cences, and disclose many secrets, wero there any to hear me.

Standing near mo In groups they have sometimes con ferred with the lobby, confiding to each other awful secrets that I have locked up In my trunk, and which will now be lost to the world forever. Others, too, hare stood there concocting plans that made all my limbs shiver. I have heard the mysterious confabs of thieves and rlllains of every degree of tur pitude. I bare often heard the "correspon dents" from Newspaper Row, tired with their day and night labor, comparing notes before going home upon the unthankfulness and un profitableness of their labor; and, oh, how often have I heard the colloquies of all classes who stopped occasionally within my area wound up with the exolamatlon 'Come, let's go and take another drink " 'Within the last fire years I have heard much, too much, from the dark plotters against the Government that protected them. Even a tree Is shocked by such treason as has been whispered at midnight under my branches! I am a Union tree. If I had allowed a part of my branches to secede, either from the south side or the north, how soon would those branches hare withered, and how would my handsome form have been distorted and crippled And now that the tree of liberty has survived the treason that assailed It, I had been happy to have lived to see the banners of peace waving over the land, and to hare stood until I had wasted away piecemeal, instead of being cut down ingloriously and cast into the fire that boils the bacon and cabbage of those who once sought my shelter to escape the heat Re flect, oh thou that passeth by. that such Is life in Washington'" orriciAL.)

The Great Dock Race The Algonquin liciunc 10 touiinut ins Tnai, The creat dock trial between the Wlnooskl and Algonquin was brought to a summary termination yesteraay Dy me reiusai oi mt Dlckerson to allow the Algonquin to com plete the ninety-six hours trial on account of alleged untairness ana violation oi tne agree ment by the engineers of the Wlnooskl. Con sequently at ten minutes past two o'clock yesterday afternoon the engine of the Al gonquin was stopped, alter sue naa com pleted 63,252 revolutions. Mr. Dickerron's friends claim that he Is justified in refusing to pursue the trial further, as one of the ar ticles of agreement was that the throttle valve of the Wlnooskl should remain open This was done, but the Winooskt's engineers used a stop ralte, which Mr. Dlckerson in sists to all intents and purposes is a throttle alve in the manner In which It is used. The engineers of the Wlnooskl allege that there Is no unfairness on their part, that it is perfectly legal for them to use the stop-valve, as this simple arrangement performs the very same duty as the complicated cut-off of Mr. Dlckerson. They also insist that within two hours of the stoppage of the Algonquin's en gine the Wlnooskl had gained two hundred and thirty-six turns on her opponent, aud over eight hundred the previous twenty-four hours. The Wlnooskl still continues to run the ninety-six hours as originally Intended. Last evening she was running splendidly, making fully fifteen revolutions of her wheels per minute.

In the South Carolina Legislature yesterday Governor Perry submitted the re port of the commissioners appointed by the convention to prepare a system of laws adapted to the new state of affairs. The report embraces a bill regulating tho domestlo relations of former slaves, a bill preliminary to legislation induced by the emancipation of slaves, and a code for the regulation of labor and the protection and government of the colored population In the State. These were ordered to be printed, and will be considered to-morrow. Resolutions were adopted appointing a committee to collect, under oath, all evi dence of unconstitutional seizures of cotton or other private property since the war, to be laid before President Johnson. The colored people of Missouri, through a State executive committee, have issued an address to the people of the State, asking for such laws as will give them the right to vote. They ask It as essential to the security and enjoyment of the rights conferred upon them by emancipation, as true and loyal citizens of the United States, and as men who have defended and maintained the Government In the field of battle. They say they do not ask for social equality, for that depends upon higher than human laws. They aver their willingness to submit to any tests and re strictions that aro required of whites, but they think that political rights and franchises should no longer depend upon color alone. They propose to organise as a party, and to employ speakers, Issue appeals, and In every proper way press their claims upon the peo ple of tho State, and they solicit contribu tions in aid of this object.

Alixakdria Items The Vircima Stats Journal of last evening has the following Items : tieavy Kooocry ine noose oi Joan uorsimau, who resides In the neighborhood of Pine Farm, waa entered on Thursday night by two scoun drels, and who, oo meeting one of Mr. Uorst man's sons, knocked him down and maltreated him In a cruel manner. They then effected an entrance Into the bed-room where Mrs. Uorst man and two of her daughters were sleeping, and carried off a chest containing about fS.Ouo Id gold and silver, after having thrown some Cayenne pepper Into the eyes or the ladles. Mr. llorit man has offered a reward of 300 for the appre hension of the thieves. The connty In that neighborhood Is reported to be Infested with highwaymen of a most desperate character, who bare committed numerous depredations during the last few weeks. The case has been reported to the police of Washington, who are said to be on the track of the robbers. More Lieht.li the gentlemen constitu ting the Alexandria Oas Company did not hear an Irreproachable character for honesty aud re spectability, we should be Induced to suspicion that they.have entered Into a conspiracy wlthoar taieves ana rooners, to exungaisn me street lamps every dark night after seven o'clock, to enable them to ply their avocations with greater facility. On Thursday night hardly a single lamp was lit on Prince street, and very few ou King and other streets There have been so many rob beries committed during the last few weeks that people who are obliged to be oat lats at night would feel a great deal more secure on their homeward route where they could see a street lamp burning.
