EVENING STAR. A portion of the Marino Band were engaged' fur tbe oooasion, an J, in tho internals of the piorciaea, porformod some of tb^r choice and lively pioeea Several colored inOi^duaia, clad in whit# jackets and aproc^ were busy in "handing roani ice antj other delicacies. uj three or f?"^r fe?nai? servants were employed J? \ refreshment room, where the two or uiroo ssbool trustees and other gentlemen wore privately regaled, we presume. Not having been among the iavited guests, (in fact none of the pre** was thus honored,) and presuming that the entertainment was select, we could not overcome oar natural dif fidence by as intrusion. We do not, however, oomplain of this, out merely mention our po sition a? explanatory cf an ab>enco of further details of the festival which wa* prolific of so mach joy to the juveniles and the compara tively lew adult* who v. ero privileged to wit noes the exercises. Our notice is voluntary, and onr praise of the entertainment?at least so mach of it as we witnessed?sincero. Grand Military Display ? Oa Monday morning, the regiment of the volunteer militia of the District of Columbia will parsdn for exercise and inspection, in accordance with the general order, heretofore issued from head Juarters. The legion will bo reviewed by Lie resident of tho United States and the Secre tary of War, and doubtless admiied by thoas and* of onr citizens, who, as ever, are partial to military displays. The boys are not invited to bo present, as it is presumed they will a: tend without formal importunity ! Ground is to bo broken, on that day, for tho erection of a suitable buLding tor the care and preservation of the ordnance, arms, and acquirements of the volunteers ar.d militia of the Distriot of Colombia, and of the military trophies of the revolutionary and other wars, and for the deposite of newly-invented and model arms for the military service, toward the building of whieh proposed armory tho late Congresr appropriated thirty thousand dollars. It wi!? ba located on the public grounds in the Seventh Ward. Tax Coscert, by the Marine Band, this evening at the President's grounds, will doubt ..<as bo largely attended; the weather being beautiful, and the love of instrumental melody not having abated in this community. The offeota of music are incalculable, toothing oven " tho savage," according to tho fancy or the personal observation of the poet, and cer tainly promotive of happiness to the civilized and enlightened portion of humanitv. Some of the losers cf money on the result of the late Virginia election might, in all proba bility. be oheered in their despondency by tho portormancs of the following | ieces. which will constitute the programme: Grand Quick ?tep, Fra Diavolo Overture. Dillj Day Quick step. Grand Terzetto, Duetto in Ernani ; Evening Star Wal .z : As I view these Scenes ?o Charming, from the opera of Scnambula, horn solo; L'Eco da Monte Blanc Polka; Few Days Quickstep, arranged for the Marine Band by the leader and conduotor, F. bcala. Watch Retcrss ? Our city has loea re markably qaiet every night daring tbe past week. Even the excitement caueed by the ?lection in Virginia has not been snfficient to draw oar people from the path of rectitude. There haa been some little contention; but a kind word of adrice has settled every misun derstanding. No political controversy has cre ated a riot as yet. and wo believe oar citizsns bate U}o mach good ?ea?e to permit it to do ao. Oar day and night police ccrtainij de serve credit for tho manner in which they have performed thoir duties as gentlomcn end officers, of there has been no necessity to record a tingle United States or Corporation case at the guard house since the 2'Jth iost.

The Gazette says '-the returns are highly favorable to the success of the Ameri can ticket."
