EVENING STAR WASHINGTON: 4*. TUESDAY, MARCH 8, 1853. The Secret of Business. It is related of a certain ancient orator that every time he rose in the Roman Sen ate he would begin his speech thus: kiDt lenda est Carthago/" "Carthage must be Jestroyed!" Whatever might be the subject under de bate? whatever might be the hour ? or whatever the place in which he rose, the commencement of the old statesman was al > 'ays the same : " This, I say, Romans ! Carthage must e destroyed!" And history relates that such was the ef ?';ct of this constant repetition on the People :nd Senate of Rome, that an expedition was itted out against the Carthaginians, and Jarthage was destroyed. The orator car ded his point. The great enemy of the loman Republic was put down?at least for he present. This is our text this evening. Now for the application. It is this: People of Washington! If you would prosper in busi ness?advertise! Would you prosper in jusiness, people of Washington ? Adver tise ! Advertis...

DAILY EVENING STAR. Ready Wit.?Bartholomew Willard (ealled "Barty" for short) was a queer customer, once very we)! known in the Northern part yi" Vermont, for liis careless, vagabond hab its, ready wit, and-remarkable facility for extempore rhyming. Sitting one day in a village store, among a crowd of idlers, who gathered about Lim on his arrival, the mer chant asked Earty why he always wore that shocking bud hat ? Barty replied it was simply because he was unable to buy a j new one. "Come," said ihe merchant, ''make j me a good rhyme on the hat immediately, without stopping, and I'll give you the best castor in the store." Whereupou Barty threw his old tile upon the tloor, and began: Then; lies my oi l hat. And pray what of that ? 'Tis us good as the re.st of my raiment. !f I buy ine a better, Yoiv:I make me jour debtor, And fce:.d iao lO jail for iLe payment!

DAILY EVENING STAR. Singular Phesomenoh.?A severe sn?w storm, accompanied by lightning, occurred in a part of Maine on the 13th ult. A cor respondent of the Gardiner (Me.) Fountain, A writing from Harbor, Mt. Desert, de scribes the storm, as it appeared there, as awful and sublime. A thunder cloud passed over the place, which, for terrific appearance, exceeded anything ever witnessed there. The correspondent adds: The lightning was of a pale color, and sometimes appeared like balls of fire, coming in through windows and doors, ?nd down the chimneys, while the houses trembled and shock to their very foundations. Mrs. E. Holden was near a window, wind ing up a clock ; a ball of fire came in through a window and struck her hand, which be numbed her hand and arm. She then, with all in the house, retreated into the entr^. Another flush succeeded, and in the room from which they had retired, resembling a volume of fire, whirling round and producing a crackling noise. A similar appearance ...

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: ? THURSDAY, MARCH 10, 1863. Pacific Railroad* There is do national object in wliich the citizens of Washington really haVe a deeper personal interest than tht construction of a government highway to the Pacific. In | some respect it depends on the location and use of that thoroughfare of the nation, whether or not Washington continues to be the national metropolis. If the Pacific slope is really neglected?the actual watts of the people in that quarter of the Republic are not promptly attended to as far as the gov ernment here has it in its power to supply them?it is clear that we shall have serious trouble in the whole of our far western possessions.

To which the Captain replied : "Mr. Comstock, jest you go for'ard and 'tend to your part of the skuner, and I'll tend to mine!" Mr. Comstock went " for'ard" in high dudgeon and halloed out: " Coys, see that 'are mud-hook all clear for lettin' go!" "Ay, ay, sir?all clear!" "Let go, then," said he.

Oh! the unfeeling wretch I 44We never applied for an officc, and do not expect to annoy Gen. Pierce in the pre mises. But we may, nevertheless, give our democratic friends a few hints as to the best mode of procedure.

The new President was eected to attend to the interests of the peo p'e, and not the least important, if not the first of them, is to see that all patriots who voted for him, are properly supplied with fat offices, as the first duty of a victorious Gen eral on entering a captured city, is to see i-iat his troops are comfortably quartered.

DAILY EVEfflXG STAR. SONG OF 1 HE DECANTER.

I placed it in the window where the blast was blowing free, and fancied that its pale mouth sang the queerest strains to me, 'They tell me-puny conquerors! the Plague has slain his ten, and war his hundred thousands of the very best of men; but I,' 'tT.fas thus the bottle spake : 'but I have conquered moie than all your fa mous conquerors, so feared and famed of yore.
