Aw Importer.?One evening last week, a C ?rson dressed as a military offiaer recorded is name at Willard's Hotel as Le Chevalier M. do Ma*i and stated that he wished to have a room The proprietors hid already refused several applications that day, ewing to their house being full; whereupon he stated he had tho rtcommen<iaiion of the Astor House, N. Y., to them, but whioh he omitted to produce, 'ihe Messrs. Willard being well known for their hospitality, aLd desirous to accommodate a stranger thus commended to them, secured him a room at Mrs Cochran'a, where be stayed a couple of days, living in tho best style, or dering his wines, Ac. The day after he ar rived bete, he called upon Mr. Anderson, a boot end shoemaker on the Avenue, and tried on a pair of boots, which he kept, and order*l a pair of gaiters and opera boots to be brought to his toom that evening, when be Wuuid pay foe the whole. Mr A. accordingly went there at the hour appointed, when, after having tried them on, and expressed him?elt pleased, bo asked Mr A. if he could change a $50 bili, to which he replied he conld not, but wou!d go and get change, but no bill was ever shown He then said he would go down and two if be could ebtain change, tut returned without any lie then told Mr A to eall en Monday morning, when he would p*y him, but Mr A suspected all was notr ght; he took op the gaiter shoeb and pumps, ani said he would bring them with him on that day ; ho oould not got possession of the boots, as the Chevalier had them on hit feet Eirly on Sunday morning, whilst all were asleep, bo aroee, broke open the front door, and loft He loft a letter on his table addressed to the lady of the bonee, regretting that he could not have n personal interview with her before leaving, but that he was unexpectedly called away to join a ship lying at Boston. The following is a description of this swindler : height &bout 6 foot 11 inohes, age 25, had cn a military eloak. gold epaulet on hia right shoulder, a star en his breast, a black silk band over his loft oyo, his waist encircled with a military sash, such as is usually worn by officers of the Froneh army Tnu Fain hut night was well filled, not withstanding the unpropitious state of the weather The gas teemed inclined to with bold its assistance in bringing out the beauties of the exhibition, but the energy of the em* pioyees forced it to perform its office, after a delay of some twenty minutes. The gentle manly Superintendent, Mr. Thos. C. Connolly, was indefatigable in bis endeavors to make visitors cheerful and comfortable ; music, both vocal and instrumental, lent its charms to Us varying scene, and the gay laugh, flashing eyes, and joyous faces of the >ouog of both ecxee. tola of many happy hearts now enjoy ing tho heyday of youth. Ihe Boon children were present, and favored the company with ? couple of songs. A party of gentlemen, also, wfco we wore informed were members of the Philharmonic Society, sang several glees, which were received with applause Professor beheel accompanied tbem on the fine parlor oegan deposited by ?rben, of New York. At 10 ?'ctook the band struck up the closing patriotie air, the beys wheeled into line, keeping time with noisy tread to tho martial strains, and in n short time the vast audience had departed; bait the merry laugh wns wafted backed by the wind, and seemed to linger around the turrets and towers of the noble building. TnuaraiCAL.?The Union of tnis mornitg saya : -We do not know whether tho fault i* in the theatrical world, or in the world of Washington, bnt we do know that, after adver tising tor a stock company for the National Theatre in one of the New York papers for several days, the looked?for response c ime not. With one exception, the four theatres in Baltimore are indifferently supported, and it is n matter of notoriety that the theatrical bu?ine?s is overdone in New Yorlfc Philade ? pbia, nnd Boston It teems strange that with a surfeited market in these cities, the failure already noticed should have taxen pace; for Washington can and would afford a remunerac tive support to a properly oendacted theatre.

ArticUt at ths Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute. It inour intention, nnder thia heading, from day to day, as space will permit, to give a description of the many useful, ingeneous and excellent articles on exhibition Throughout the Fair thia inventive geuins of Ameriaan art and skill may be seen, and a short deli neation thereof oannot fail to interest tho reader. Carriages.?Wm P. Hook has on exhibi-, tion a beautiful phaeton, whioh in point of woikiuanship, will fairly challenge comparison with any manufac urer in the United States There is no extravagance about it, but is both neat and elegant, and i< admirably adapted to the use of a gentleman of fortuno It uiusl be understood that this carriage was not got un especially for display at the Fair, since it is only one.of a large number that he bos man ufactured during the past year, and which is plaeod there as a sample of the style of work that he produces. Hia show room, on 1) street between ?:h and 10tb,is well wortty a visit, lhere will be found a large stock and the ? greateit variety cf carriages, of the moat sn I P? structure, all of which have been built on hia extensive premises. J ?Mr Joseph F Hodgson makes i a fine display of tin ware and stoves, both of| his own and northern manufacture Tie superior excellence of his own handiwork is aPPttrent, a superficial examination of the I diflereni articles being sufficient to convince one of that fact. He has beautiful coffee and tea pota, tbe surface figurod with various de \ icm, which, as far as weight and appearmice go, will readily pass for silver. A very unique article, which he styles a Yankee nutmeg grater, attracted the particular attention of I the lady visitors, sereral declaring they must purchase it. We noticed, also, that while tbe depositora generally have their wares labeled ?Hands Off." Mr H has placed cards around his p.ace with the inscription "Hands On!" an invitation to criticise as olisely as one pleases Magnetic Soap, hrfccts, Hair OH, \e ? On the left hand entranoe into the Hall, there ia^ a moat attractive atand, which is surrounded nightly by the ladies. It belongs to E M> Clain, of Philadelphia. His newly invented extracts surpass any tfcing of the kind yet produoed, and cannot fail to beeome popular His magnetic soap is so universally fa use, it having received the premium so often at the different fairs, that it is unnecessary to dilate upon it And his vegetable hair oil and com pound for tbe teeth are articles that uo ladies toilette is oomplete without. ? ? ? ?? f * Pabib Aucaxxxsta tbis Wixtbr ?Paris is not as gay as usual thia winter?ao writ# ] American friends there?but neverthalaaa it is notaombre. 1 he English Ambassador, Lord Crowley, lately oj ened part of his great rooms I to an infant party, when the Frenoh, English and Ameriean children were gathered together to the number of some four or five hundred.
