DAILY EVENING STAR. Stoclctou'* Jtmyy Reform Bkftl. This very important measure is now be f re the Senate. We huve several times al luded to it. and again submit some of its outlines, as we find them detailed by one of our contemporaries: "Among other things, this bill proposes to abolish the intermediate grade of Passed Midshipman and Master, and what is bet ter, making promotions according to merit instead of seniority. We regari this a splen did feature because calculated to excite em u'ation in deeds of noble daring and enter prise. We are in favor of opening the path oi glory and honor to all. In our country ail men are considered free and equal, and if the common sailor can by intelligence and bravery fit himself for promotion, we see no reason why he should be kept down; ?h hough we dou t not that every one loves his country, we believe that there is a vast difference between fighting for honor, and twelve dollars a month.

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1853. Publie Executions. We have repeatedly called the attention of our readers to the morbid taste of a cer tain class of society who delight in witness ing the hanging of criminals in public. The recent action of Congress on the sub ject, whereby all public executions will be hereafter abolished has met with our cordial approval; and we are happy to perceive that it is very generally commended by the press of all parties. Our well-conducted cotemporary, the Rich mond Republican, whose spirited pages we always open with pleasure, makes the fol lowing remarks on this subject: " Congress has enacted a law, carrying out views long urged by this paper against the public execution of criminals. It has provided that the sentence of death shal hereafter be carried into effect, in the Dis trict of Columbia, within the walls of some prisen in the District, or within a yard of enclosure adjoining such prison. None but the necessary officers of ...

DAILY EVENING STAR. A Queer Card Table.?A subscriber in Pennsylvania sends us the following, for which he vouches: "Some years since, business calling me to New Orleans, I found myself one evening steaming it *Iown the Mississippi. The night was raw and un pleasant ; and not having much else to do, most of the passengers betook themselves to card playing. The boat being much 'crowded, all the tables, etc., were soon seized upon ; and although everything available was finally pressed into the ser vice, quite a number were obliged to wait for ethers to become tired. One party, however, I observed, who seemed deter mined to find a place somewhere. Their at tention was at length attracted to the ple thoric form of apparently a Methodist clergyman, who, extended upon several chairs, was peacefully slumbering. Quietly drawing up a stool on either side of him, they ?went to work. The game was single-handed euchre, and as the points were scored with chalk upon the sleeper's coat, it soon pr...

All classes of socie ty are interested in originating and contin uing a sound, healthy circulating medium. The thousands of dollars that have been lost in Washington?inainly among those of our harl-working population who could illy afford to lose their money?would have long since paid all the extra expense now required to meet and supply the public de mand for a convenient and safe currency.

DAILY EVENING STAB. Meagher, the Irish Patriot. The Boston Chronicle gives a very pleasing sketch of .the visit of Meagher to the Pil grim Cit}, and of his lecture there before one of the associations. The subject of the lecture was " Henry Grattan and the Irish Volunteers," and it Was treated in a manner to attract much ? interest from every hearer. We shall attempt no abstract of it. The story of Grattan, his early neglect of the profession to which he was brought up for solitary musings, and , his intense devotion to his country, were faithfully and poetically described. The history of Ireland's degradation and subser viency to England, up to the time of the saccess of the revolution in America was briefly sketched, and the lecturer dwelt upon and painted in vivid colors the situation of affairs when the volunteers, with Grattan as their leader, had the control of her destiny in their own hands. Up to this point, the lecturer proceeded somewhat in detail, and he told of the re fu...

that night, he turned about and drove back to the burying ground. " Now," said Jake, " I think the best thing I can do, for all concerned, is to put Polly Gray back where she belongs, and there let h r rest." Accordingly Jake went to work and open ed the grave again, carried the corpse and replaced it as well as he could, and filled up the grave and rounded it off in good or der. Ho then took his horses and chaise and returned home, well satisfied with his night's work. The next morning, some time before sun rise, and before any one was stirring in the neighborhood, Joe and Rufus were at the old buryisg ground. They went round the inclosure, went to the tree where they had fastened ths horse, and looked on every side, but discovered nothing. They went through the gate, and across to the grave which they opened or thought they had opened the night before. The grave looked all right, as though it had not been touched since the funeral. They could see nothing of the horse or chaise, nn...

Incidents stran^ ger than fiction, aud more beautiful because true.* A few weeks since at a class meet ing in a neighboring city, a pious ship mas ter told his experience, and how he became converted.

Well, when I was in Talchauana, having my ship repair ed, I received a note from some busy body, telling me that my wife was faithless; that she was bewitched by a young man, who was to her almost a husband. I did not be lieve the letter, but still I was almost crazy. At last I thought the story might be true, and the hope of revenge recalled me to my senses.
