SATURDAY JULY 4, 1857.! Independence Day. To-day, the 4th of July, 1857, is tlie 81st Anniversary of the birth-day of A- 1 merican Independence. On the 4ih of July, 1770, the greatest event, but one, j recorded in the world's history, took j ^lace, and we cannot recur to it without! our heart being filled from its deepest recesses to its utmost and overflowing capacity, with the greatest emotions of gratitude and grateful acknowledgements, and why should not every American man ifest the deepest desiic to see this Anni-j versary pay its annual visits, to adinouish us that another Anniversary of pur Independence Day has arrived. Eighty-one years ago, the Fathers of the Republic, in council, assembled, after due deliberation, made the wise decision that the American "colonies were, and of right ought to be, free and independent State?." On that day our country embraced within its limits thirteen States, extending along the sca-coast and the vast domain of the W est where the controlling power in the country is settling itself, was then an unexplored wildderness. The contrast is indeed most favorable to the iudoinita1 le energj of the American nation, and affords a striking argument as to the better adaptation t<> a Republican form ol government, lo the promotion of a people's improvement, to all that constitutes their greatness and glory. The irain of thought into which the mind of the American is most naturally led, upon the recurrence of this National S.ibbath, carries him back to its origin, and the condition of our country then, as contrasted with its present high position, among the nations of the earth. I he present high character we enjoy among the nations of the earth, the great degree, of eminence we have attained in all the arts and refinement? of civilized lilc, in ; all the elements which consiitute a nation j great, pronounce the experiment of the capacity of man for its 'self-government, successful beyond all dispute. As descendents of such noble ancestors, and as heirs of such a dearly purchased legacy, it becomes us, in memory of their many virtues, to observe the 4ihj of July, a day which they have rendered immortal by their action, and around which cluster so many sacred associa-, lions, as a National Sabbath, on which ; day, all, of whatever party or sect, should; lay aside his parttzan prejudices and sec* ( tanan views, and unite in celebrating the day on which our Independence was de- j clared. May the recurrence of anothd 4th ol July find us still in our career ol glory and prosperity, the various Slates of our Confederacy still in the bonds of Union, and the discordant elements which have endangered, and still endangers, our existance as a Nation, scatter in the winds. Accident. Whilst Mr. Georoe Beckham, of Harper's Ferry, and Mr. B. B. Washington, of Winchester, were proceeding from this place, on Wednesday evening, the 1st inst., in a two-horse vehicle, and when about one mile beyond lvrrneysville, one of ike wheels came ofl", frightening the horses and ran down an embankment, throwing out the inmates and severely fracturing 3n arm ot Mr. Beckham. Mr. Washington was dragged several hundred yards before he became disentangled Irom the vehicle, and miraculously without sustaining any injury. The vehicle was demolished. They returned to this place when Mr. B. had his wound satisfactorily treated. This was certainly a remarkable escape from serious if not fatal injury- injury- juryWager House. Mr J. P. A. Entler has become proprietor of the Old U. S. Hotel, Harper s Ferry, situated on the Baltimore & Ohio Kail Road, and having renovated the whole concern, it may well be classed as one of the best eating houses on the road, as e\idenced by the universal expression of the passengers on the cars. Much prejudice has heretofore existed against the Hotel, but from the improvements made in the whole interior ol ihe house, together with the indefatigable exertions of the host and his assistants, the "Wager House" will gain a reputation equal to any of the best Rati Road Eating Honnes. Mr. Entler gives his entire attention to ilie wants and comforts of his guests. Passenger? from Baltimore, the Baltimore an?l P?okei>buig railroad, now Itsai h ?>t. houfs in *4^ hums1.

For the Register. Examination of Mr. John S. Pierce s School. Mr. Editor.? The sixth scholastic year and twelfth session of this Institute has( just closed, and its termination has con(erred additional honors upon those which the Principal has won in preceding years. As a Southern establishment of instruc- J tion, we point to it with pride, as a suitable place ? having all the essential facilities for the intellectual training of our fair Southern girls, and chivalrous sons oi the soil. On Thursday the 25th nit., the examination commenced and was taken up entirely in examining the pupils in the various studies, among which we perceive some new studies introduced by Mr. Pierce, viz : Zoology, Geology, Physical Geography, Philology, and Constitution of the IT ni ted Stales, for the oldei scholars. We were not present then, but understand from one who was, that the achulars acquitted themselves honorably and the examination gave entire satisfaction to those present. On Friday we had the priviledge and; pleasure ol being "on hand," and it. alfords lis infinite pleasure to state that we were much pleased w ith the exercises ? it was a rich, rare treat that we enjoyed, and Relieve we echo the opinions ol all present when we say every one was highly^ gratified. The day was occupied exclusively wiih the reading of compositions and declamation. The compositions were on divers subjects, well written, and speaks abundantly for their authors. They weie all, ftitbout exception, good ; but there are a few that claim and deserve special notice. Foremost among them is one written by Mi^s Alice Lambright. Having no particular subject to treat upon her "Thoughts" ? the very best theme she could possible have chosen ? were beautifully and comprehensively portrayed. It was her first ellort, and the innocent, child-like style and diction was really charming, which, lake it all in all, was decidedly the best composition produced, and it was received wall great | applause and approbation. The next which pleased us much and tjave universal satisfaction, was Miss1 Cieme McEndrke's "Visit to remarkable places." Her tin me was treated in a sprightly w,iv, while she essayed* to elevate (he remarkable places ol our own jountrv with iho-e of classic Home. In J he choice of her subject she displayed commendable .Republican taste. It was eceived with marked applause. Miss Anna Parkan's "Natuie" was a jeauiiful essay, and nicely conceived. It; was tieatid with great care and skill, and somewhat poetical. She* displayed powers of fine imagination, and a talent for writitig. Her essay was rather lengthy, i but she will be readily excused, because i every one knows theie is an abundance j of lood for imagination, and a i tch fund of intellectual speculation in looking up from "Nature unto Nature's God." It was received with demonstiations of approval. There are others w hose compositions claim otir observance, but we must be excused lor want of time and space. x\lter the reading of the compositions, (which was done by Mr. Pierce, but ve think should have been done by the writer's themselves) the oratorical part ol the exercises by the boys, came off. This part of the exl ibiiion was ecrtainly, as much as the rest, a credit to the scholars and their teacher. It has never been our pleasure to li>ten to better declamations from persons so young. Especially gratifying were the speeches of A. R. Boteler, Jr., E. I. Lke, Jr., S. M. Hamtramck and C. T. Boteler. A better or more graceful dt livery than that of these young gentlemen, we never saw. Mr. Lee, Jr., displays much talent as a debator and speaker ; and A. K. Boteler, Jr., proves himself to be a worthy son ol a noble sire. Id the evening ilic Soiree or musical portion of ilie exercises came ofl* under ihe care and direction of Miss Boylan, Mr. P erceV learned and dccomplishtd assistant. This pait of ihe examination was magnificent and pleasing ? llie young | ladies having acquitted themselves nobly, winning ihe admiration and applause ol all present. The songs were exquisitely .sunn, and the music well executed. Bei ? /? ? t I ing peculiarly fond of music we feel constrained to particularize a little in thiq department of the Institution. It is not our intention to flatter, Mr. Editor, or to give prai>e where it is not meiited, and we feel confident that we speak the sentiments of every one of that audience when we say thai Miss Genie McEndrbk's voice and execution were exquisite and beautiful beyond expression. In "Robert Le Diable" and "Ernani Involaini," the tone and sweetness were, now, like the full echo of a deep toned bell, and then, like the gentle, plaintive note of a harp string. Whilst the pure, gushing melody filled the room, "not a sound was heard" but that of the sweet song bv the sweet-looking singer ; j even the little children present were charmed into silence. Miss McEndree sings with much taste, force and skill, evincing a thorough knowledge of the beautiful science of music, i here were no prizes awarded for excellence in this departmenu but if there had been we are sure Miss McE. would have received the highest premium, for truly she was the cantatrict of the evening. Miss Ellie Harper also sang some sweet songs in a very fascinating man-! ner. "Maggie by my side" was creditably sung, and received witn demonstrations of delight. Miss Harper sang with great precision and taste ; the tones ofher voice were as sweet and gentle as the breeze in early summer. ! Alits Mary Line warbled a melody as sweetly am! softly as to impress one with the idea that her voice was all made up of love tones. We speak of her "Native Land" son g, which was sung with feeling and spirit, and produced the most charming sensations. We admire Miss Line's style of singing very much ; and her songs were listened to with delight and received with demonstrations of plea- j sure. Miss M. Chaplain sang a sweet song with ease and unaffectedness ; and her ( performance appeared to give a vast deal of pleasure. There are others who merit our notice, but the lateness of the hour when we ar- ! rived at the gay and festive scene prevents us from speaking of them as we desire much to do. Every song and piece of music performed elicited the highest encomiums of praise and applause from an appreciative audience. Truly, M iss Boylan may feel a just pride in the proficiency of some of her pupils. An occasion of this kind is always fraught wiili interest to the community in which it is located ; and teachers, parents and pupils look to it with joy and anticipation ; and we can safely assert that Air. Pierce's last examination gave entire satisfaction to all concerned, which reflect immense credit upon him and his assistant. Mr. P. is not an old fogy that sticks to old rules and text books, but he keeps pace with the age and every new j discovery on science and teaming he seeks after and adopts in his school, so that his scholars may have the benefits of the latest discoveiy. A pnir of corporals and a file of soldiers from '.he Light-Infantry honored and adorned the occasion by their appearance in unifoim. REPORTER. Don't Give, the New Cent to the Baby. ? A line little girl, the daughter of James Cragies of the Seventh ward, 3wallowed one of the new cents on Monday, to the great dismay of the parents. Suitable temedies facilitated the passage of the i dirty little coin, which saw day-light just I fourteen hours afterwards. The same physician who put this eagle through has a child under his care in Williamsburg , who swallowed one of the new cents a- ; bout a week since. All emetics and purnatives have thus far proved useless. The] patient sutlers immensely from giddiness and nervous irritability. The new cent is a bad plaything for children. ? N. i ork Times. Decided against Governm<nt.? 'Y\w case of the United States against the City | Bank of Columbus, Ohio, involving the sum of $100,000, which it was claimed the bank sgreed to transmit from New York to New Orleans for Government, while Hon. Thomas Corwin was Secreta-i ry of the treasury, but which was alleged to have been used by the Columbus In- j surance Company, was tried in the United States Court at Cincinnati, last week, and resulted in a verdict in favor of the bank against the Government. This was the third trial of the case, the jurits on the two former trials having disagreed. East Pennsylvania Railroad. -Ground was broken on Thursday, the 18th ult., for the construction of the East Pennsylvania Railroad, about six miles east of Heading, from which place westward the I>ebanon Valley Kailroad ? which will be finished in about four months ? will give this toad connection with the Pennsylvania Central, the Northern Central ? which connects with the Sunbury and Erie Railroad and with Baltimore ? and with the Cumberland valley Kailroad, which it is proposed to connect with the Baltimore and Ohio Kailroad at Martinsburg, Va. The Cumberland Coal and Iron Com-j pany recently purchased one hundred ca- 1 nal boats of the Erie Canal Company, in- 1 tended to be put on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, for the use of the Cumber-: land Coinp;tny in the transportation of coal io Alexandra. Forty-seven of these boats were brought around to Alexandria, when it was discovered that they were all too wide by three inches to pass the: lock-gates. Murderers Executed. ? St Lous, June 20. ? John Lapoint, for the murder of Robert Wheaton, Israel Shoultz for shooting John Inham, and Jacob Woesi in, for killing his wife, were executed in the jail yaid in thi9 city yesterday, and at Edwardsville, III., George W. Sharpe and John Johnson were hung for the murder of Barth. A Wholesale Business in Lost Babies. ? Sunday last being a warm and pleasant day the babies were all out sunning in New York, nearly 100 of them straved away from their mammas apron siring ana got lost. But all were oun and restored to their homes before night by the police and its telegraph, extending from station to station. Meeting.? The Virginia Republican savs that a very interesting meeting is going on in the Methodist Episcopal Church in Martinsburg, under the pastoral charge of Rev. John H. Landstreet. On Sabbath week, twenty persons connected themselves with the church on probation, and twelve received the ordinance of Babtism. The meeting is still in progress, and the altar is crowded nightly, \* ith seekers of religion, We see it is aUtcd in one of our up country exchange^Hlit there is a man in the county of Floyd.
