The convenient family carriage, with the span of horses attached, procured as a gift to the President elect by several citizens of Boston and other parts of New England, wore formally presented to him this morn ing at Willard's Hotel. Mr. Willard hoisted the American flag in honor of the event. Quite a number of the people assembled in front of the hotel to admire the vehicle, and the fine animals that drew it.

DAILY EVENING STAR. Why Didn't he Weah Spectacles ??A ? *? Detroit paper is guilty of the following story ?>f an accident which happened to a near Mghted gentleman at a ball in that city.? He waited upon his partner to a seat after a " love of a polka," when he espied the embroidered edge of a supposed handker chief at the feet of his divinity. He hastily seized it, when the "Fy, fy, sir!" of the lady informed him that he was taking improper liberties with the scollops of her jupon. There is considerable truth in the f allowing, though who evtr knew a woman to be guided in such matters by anything bat her own perverse will? Nevertheless, we give it, and hope it will benefit them: "Marrying Drunkards.?Young ladies or more elderly women, who contemplate marrying at all, as most ladies do, ought to r-fleet seriously, that in forming family re lu tions the drinking habit must be excluded, ?vi* misery, shame, and disgrace are inevita ble.

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1853. - The Wuhlngton Statue. In a handsomely written letter on the iui?ject of the statue of Washington, voted by Congress. George W. Lewis of Westmore il J, Virginia, makes some very appropri ate suggestions. He says: " The cordial spirit and dispatch with which the House of Representatives mani fested its purpose to carry, at length, into effect the resolution of 1783, adds to the pleasure which the event occasions, and re deems Congress in a great degree from the rej roach which has so long attached to it f'?r not fulfilling the obligatiou to which the nation was committed seventy years ago!11 Mr. Lewis refers with point to the fact (h it 4,the nation, in its aggregate charac ; ~r as a federal republic, sees at this moment ?4ie feeble and struggling efforts of a private asecciation of individuals to rear a monu ment to Washington, of dimensions com surate with his exalted greatness, with j'i?ent inactivity, if not positive indiffer en...

DAILY EVENING STAB. A Story with Horns. The following anecdote from the New Hampshire Telegraph is too goo d to be lost: Many years ago there was in the eastern part of Massachusetts a worthy old D. D., and although he was an eminently benevo lent man and a good christian, yet it must be confessed that he loved ajoke much bet ter than even the most inveterate jokers.? It was before church organs were much in use, it so happened that the choir of the church had recently purchased a doi ble bass viol. Not far from the church was a large pasture, and in it a huge town bull. < >ne hot Sabbath in the summer, he got out of the pasture and came bellowing up the street. About the church there wa^ plenty of untrodden grass, green and good, and Mr. Bull stopped to try the quality, perchance to ascertain if its location had improved its i ' ilavor, at any rate the reverend doctor was ia the midst of his sermon, when? i4Boo-woo-woo," went the bull. The doctor paused, looked up at the sing...

DAILY EVENING STAB. Revolution In Fashion. The correspondents at Paris declare that there is a social revolution going on there in respect to fashions. As Paris reigns <over America, we suppose the rebellion will extend hither presently. Says the clever correspondent of the Boston Atlas: Even the cravat, which traces its gemealo /*ical shelf as far back as 1836, and is bowed double with years, turns as white as a sheet on every ball night. "By fcaint Louis, Sacre ventre grit," said a young Legitimist nobleman, near me the other night at the ? pera, "the cravat won t last even so long si3 the empire." Although ladies refuse, with the obstinacy common to their sex, to turn to the short waisted dresses of 1812, they have taken the venerable anti-revolutionary fashion of pow dering the hair with perfumed flour; and I think I shall have to chronicle, before the 1 iavcs again appear on the trees in the < Lamps Elysee, hair powder is iudispensible to every lady who wishes to be comme...
