EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: |t I ? WS-' TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1853. Tike Exhibition. Tne opening on Thursday of the first exhi bition of the Metropolitan Mechanics' Institute will be a happy era in the annals of this city. The association itself, and the ener gy of its first movements, is emphatically American, and typical of the vigorous pro gress which marks our Republic. Without even waiting for a charter from Gongress, it has sprung into life and activity, resem bling the fabulous creation of Minerva? fully armed?from the brain of Olympian Jove, although it only possesses the pacific attribute of the wise Gediess. The following paragraphs from the circu lar issued by the Institute, fully explain some of the many advantages of the Exhi bition?the time and the place: "The Committee believe that the city of Washington possesses certain advantages for holding such an exhibition, which are worthy of the consideration of exhibitors throughout the country.

DAILY EVENING STAR. The Kew York Express publishes a list of the wages paid to workmen at Sidney, Australia, at the latest dates. The prices range for mechanics from $1.50 to $2.50 per day ; brickmakers command the highest remuneration. $4.50 to $5 per day, aud draymen, who receive $2.50 to $3.75 are next. This shows that an erroueous im pression has prevailed in raising the rates of Australian compensation to the California rule. The wages paid to the several trades are, indeed, on an averege, not much in ad vance of those that are now paid in our own cities. The prices of provisions there are not, however, near so high as in California. In one respect, the Express remarks, Aus tj alia will have the advantage of California. It is one of the finest agricultural countries in the world, and when it has the requisite population to develop its resources will be atle to feed itself. Meanwhile it is drawing lbrgely on England and the United States, and will probably continue to do so for ...

What I* WmUfdl We rn Thursday expressed a hope that, * ere loi>g? the stalwart mecbauics of the lan? would assume their proper position in the social scale. To do this, they must not only move shoulder to shoulder in orgauized ac tion, but each one must individually seek to improve bimsetf. Not that mechanics are now d?ficient in intellectual attainments, but tkey should (to quote from the Pennryl ranian) make their trade a study. Each one should seek improvement by the study of bis peculiar branch of mechanism, and by the achievements of bis mind, as well as the labor of bis hands, exalt his occupation and benefit himself. Some of the most emi nent men in the country or the world, were those who, in the scientific investigations of their business, brought to light facts which are now acknowledged to have worked our great and useful reforms. In former times mechanics rose to the bighe9t positions in the land, and filled...

Of the many amusing anecdotes of this eccentric man of Roanoke, we do not believe the following was ever in print: He was through a part of Virginia in which he was unacquainted?during the meantime, he stopped during the night at an Inn nesr the forks of the road. The inn keeper was ? fine old gentleman, and no * " .. :j - doubt one of the first families of the Old Dominion. Knowing who his distinguished guest was, he endeavored during the even ing to draw him into conversation, but failed in all his efforts. But in the morning when Mr. Randolph was ready to start, he called for his bill, which, on being presented, wss paid. The landlord, still anxious to have some coversation with him, he began as follows: "Which way are you travelling, Mr. Ran dolph ?" "3ir 1" said Mr. Randolph, with a look of displeasure. "I asked," said the landlord, "which way are you travelling ?" "Have I paid you my bill ?" "Yes." "Do I owe you anything more ?" "No....
