J. v ? M N(t STAR. Local Intelligenoo. Ciara<teristic?Mr J?dm Mahersends ^ ?be toHow.rg of?*r >ct?ru;.o and really in teresting communication: I long since "uggested to tbe Com misj inner 0f Public Buildings (then Mij r N ' icd) to give me one avenue a year, graded and carbrd. tnd one mite iu leng h, to <mprove iiorMcnl tarally What a ei j would you fcave bad, oad this sugge<t'on been Carried oat? Yoa ???uld n * have tweuty-one arenas, in the heart of the c ty. with the reservations a* well ,f tfae streets, all planted ana improved ; y es and jour Ci y liall too. inside and outside of the grounds. beautifully planted ; a fountain in the centre of each reservation. and a statue of each of the Presidents facing east. All reservations, according to my plan, should hare eighteen inches of a foundation in the siear. a granite coping of six inches, with a wr tight irun paling to prevent dust and other filth from accumulating as at present, and also dogs and hogs from rooting up and destroying the grounds. Each lamp, according to my plan was to have been placed therein, and to be '?o ieet higher than those in tbe street. I is for inclosing and improviijg all tbe reser rations I have planted twelve already ; but they are not inclossd I hope to live to see all cf them completed- l'he water-works are not far off, and I hop* we will live to enjoy the bentfi' ot' them If we do not, our off-pricg will. From the width of our streets, reserva tions and pavements, in my opinion, we will se-pasa Lk .d-.n r ,Parts in beauty as a city. All dow depenls upon good generalship T >o fa?; or too ?low will out do in instating the reservations Commence right, and we wid cever be wrong I hope you will notice that some of them very small. Tbe pavements are wide All dwellings take off seven feet for porches or steps. It I had that space in add: hod for all of the reservations it would add five feet on each side of them. Tiey would then appear much larger. In this view some may differ from me ; but it U tor the benefi of all. I am going ahead witk a!! the reservations; the Commissioner says I am right " Bat,'' says he, " Maner, the citiaens ask too mush ; tbe appropriations are limited. Do the beet you can io plea-e them What gives more general sa'.isfac ion than planting avenues with trees and improv ing reservations? Had I my way, it would have been dene long since. There were more tree> planted this spring and last fall than for the last ten yeats This sprin planting wil> speak for itsolf Avenues and raserva tiocs have beea set out with twelve hundred ornamental trees And here let me say that this is the first time that any Ccmmsssioner of Public Buildings had backed me in my Old m?u plant trees and build houses at the age?: seventy or eighty, not for themselves bat fo: their children I am the oldest gar decer in the United States; so told! ?9 I am fifty one years a gardener. I think it is almost time i should know some thing about it. I have been forty years in the country Jackson did not send for me without knowing who I was I ?m tweny one >ea-.? in this city During this time I had not one professional gardner in my etnp oy sient?all laboring men I made them wfca they are?handy and useful. I hope to plant twenty thousand tress, before I die, to im prove and or: ament the cuy cailed after the rather of his Country. What spot more dp serving of it ? I hops to see the City of Wash iegton surpassing the world. I helped to m-ke it and I am willing to die for it. James Maher, the public gudaner. never had a leare of atoeiioe and did not lose one day to tbe year by sickness f r the last twenty-one years; eighteen days nok. the balance on duty I lived under the administration of eight Pre': dents ande-ght Commissioners Of the former, four are deal; of the latte*, seven. May they resi in peace. Jambs Maher, Public Uardener. 41 Have a Cake '?some nice ones," said an e'.ierly woman, thrusting her basket in the fa.e of a boy ou Penasylvania avenue, the ether day The looked into the basket with a wistful eye. and then thrust his band into his pocket as if fueling f??r a c?nt, which migh*. perhaps be there lounJ Disappointed in his searca. he was in the act of turning away, the woman still insisting up n his taking a cake The boy, thus importuned, accordingly took the best 1 >okicg one (if. indeed there was any choice,) and was about taking the sec*nd bite, when the dealer checked him, saving. *? Pay me tor the cake " The juvenile, with an air of surprise, responded,?44 Didn't you beg me to take a cake7 " Yes," said the woman. 44 but I didn't give it to yon for noth ing; I expected you to pay for it ' 44 Then take your stale cake ." he exclaimed, at the same time flinging the gingerbread into her basket. and making use of language whioh did no' argue favorably in behalf of bis morals It is unnecessary to say the parties were not particularly pleased with each other's conduct. False Alarm asd a Lose Res.?About half-past eight e'eloek, la-t night, the beiis sounded an alarm of fire, and the engines, as usual in such cases, were hauled out The light was in the d:re?tion of the Military Asy lum. Thitherward the Northern Liberties company with two pieces of apparatus, ran. taking the Seventh st> ee: route While on the way, they were informed by several per sons in responsa to thiir inquiries, that a building or two wera enveloped with fl tmes This stimulated the-n onward. Soeh infor mation, however, could not be obtained even at the toll-gate The light 'till loomed, ard, tbe company gathering fresh strength, the arpn. ratus wai drawn up tbe hill, but nor wi h<,ut severe labor Vim that standpoint, the company lo- ked. net on burniig houses, but on crackling and inflamed b ush-wood! So they retraced their steps, regretting of course that tbe false statement on the way had de ceived and unnecessarily faligner! them The run to the scene ard the wilk from it, covered a line if six or seven miles.
