At a givea signal he commenced hia peril* oat performance, and walked ilowlj forward, beariog in his hands a h* aneitg pole some fifteen feet in length The crowd, which hot a moment before was quite uproarious, sad danly became hushed and still, and all gated with breathless attention on the daring gy mast. a# be cautiously advatced step by s< - p The interest of the va?t assembly at t'ris time was intense, and man; of the wemen a.erted their faces, fearful that snj moment be might be dashed headlong to the pavement below When he arrived at the middle of the street, he stopped, as if irresolute, and stood bal ancing himself for % tew moments At this a murmur pa>sed through the crowd, 4 He is fallirg,' 'he is falling.' accompanied with con* aider.) c!e excitement; but. suddenly ohaDging his position, he did down tad sat on the rope, whereupon tlVa crowd sent up a wild 'hurrah' in compliment o his adroitness After gy rating feed circamgyratir g for some time, he regained hi? foctho'd, and succeeded in gaining the other side of the street without farther difficulty, on reaehiu ;-which he was greeted with loud and long continued cheering from the vast assemblage in the street below. After waiting for some time in vain, to see if the performance would be repeated, the crowd slowly dispersed " Look cut for thsm, Messrs. Police ? Every Sunday afternoon, of late, we are credibly informei, a very mischievous and noisy gang of colored boys of all ages are ac customed to cocgregate around the corner cf 15th and M streets, to the annojanceof the neighborhood, and more especially of the congregation of the linicn Bethel Church, located just there They play ball on Sunday aftemooo, screamiog and swearing at ?* the top of their bent," and on Monday night they amused themselves by entering the church ai.d creating disturbances so ;-s at times to inter rupt the swi-ee. There are two disreputable grop shops, we also hear, in that vicinity, open night and day, Sunday included, where any and all serts of people can buy very bad rum. some of their customers being boys of the gang above de scribe]. We have every re.ieon to place corfi lance in these facts, and thus ask the aid of the police in putting a stop to this state of things in that qi?ter. The Close op tub Fair ?This h the last day of the season, ?.nd today we take our last look at many of the curiosities and ia ?entiona that have so long satiated our won der-loving appetite.

If the weather bo pro pitious we expect to see the beauty of our city well represented there We are much gratified to learn that the Beard have voted to pay the expenses of the ltteMr. Wbitely incurred in G:t ng up his per fumery case at the Fair. Sioxor Severo Stkisi ?This gantlcman is about to establish in Waihington perma. cently fer the purfofe of giving instructions in vocal music.

Wasbiscto* Moxc'ient.- The Washington correspondent of the Baltimare Sun, in ye* terday s paper, thus notices the troubles at the Monument : " Considerable sensation is produced here by the forcible ejec'ment o? the superintend en: of the Wathiugton Monument by order of the new trustees The incumbent held his post under the appointment of the < Id Bo.nrd, which was lately superseded by the eleotion of a Know Xothirg board The people of the country who h^ve contributed to tbis work have a right to expect, that it *?ill be properly conducted, no matter who ms>y be the mana gers Iheiutject is now undergoing an inves tigation by the grand jury.

This ii evidence of the bealtby state of the real estate market in eur city, which, in view of the recent liberal appropriation hy Con gress to carry on atd perfect the introduction of pure water into our city, must cause real e*tate 10 rise in every section thereof.

Last night a colored man, named llenry Lawience, quarrelled with bis wife, and struck her with a large pi'eber, catting her head badly. He w;uld probably have d^ne ber greater damage if be had act been prevented by some one present. He was sent to jail this morning by Justica M jrsell. Svorisg Houses.?The neighborhood of C and Third streets has been greatly annoyed for acme time paat by a cumber of boys, white and solored, who run about from door to door, Iullit* bells, rapping on the doors ard win. ows, howling, screaming, and d >iug all they can to vex tbe neighbors. Two cjlored boys were arrested list night for stoniog a house on Third street, and narrowly escaped a whip ping this morning at the guard h*u^e They were released on security, but their case is a warning to other bjys in mat neighborhood.

Qoon Orricaus ?The offijers of tha Hfth District police appear to hare considerable work to do, and we are plos^ed to say they attend to it.

Georgetown, March 14,1855 We learn from a rouble souroe that the President and director of the Metropolitan R.ailroad have resolved to put under contract, immediately, some trenty miles of the woik. The bids have been placed in the hand? of a committee, conaistlng of the engineer, pre?i dent, Capt. Boyce and H. C. Mathews, with authority to contract with those who bids are most reliable and favorable to the company S) the work will certainly be coiftmenced be-1 fore the first of May. Our Corporation, and all other subscribers to the stock may, there fore. calculate on having to meet the second instalment on tueir subscriptions some time du-ir.g the ensuing summer, to enable the rt-crk when once ^commenced to go on without interruption. We have beard several nerions who have, probably, been fearful that the work would never be commenced, intimate their intention to foifeit the first instalment, ? which they have paid, and meet no more of' their subscription to the stcck From decisions of oourts heretofore made in similar cases, wo think all such will find themselves mistaken in their calculations The law regards ali such subscribers a? parties to a binding contract from which there is no escape but by oomplying with the terms. A<1 knew the natnre of the contract before they entered into it, and they are bound to meet this as much as any other honoit obligation. The law, wo think, will satisfy them of this lact.
