DAILY EVENING STAB. [From the Semi-Weekly Jiewa.] Thb Omnibus Lm*.~"And what can you tay about the Omnibus Line?" says one. Well, I can tell you, friend, what can be said about the line of omnibuses run ning between the Navy Yard and Sixth street. There was a time when that line of stages was eagerly sought for by the weary pedestrian, but now it is different, and why ? Because the proprietors of the line have grown tired of obliging persons. And even leaving favors out of the question, who would patronize a line of stages that, if the weather is a little disagreeably are housed in their respective places at sundown ? Why I, for one, should not. Now it is a fact, that many persons have had to take Shank's mare, and proceed to the city thereon, because there was no stage to convey them thither, and I myself was at the stand near the Navy Yard gate one evening, before 7 o'clock, and there was no stage in which to ride to the city. Now I think if the proprietors of the line would be a ...

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: ?+? ? MONDAY, MARCH 14, 1853. Punishment of Crime. The editor of the Mobile Tribune, allud ing to the growing laxit y of public opinion with regard to the punishment of criminals, days: "There are in the law so many corners to turn, that great crimes may evade punish ment, if the criminal have the means to employ the best legal aid in his behalf. Somehow this has become so notorious a belief as to give immunity to evil doers.? first, we see everywhere in the criminal records of the country the bold and habit ual enemy of society almost invariably es caping. This breeds in a bad man indif ference to legal penalties. It makes them so little terrible to him that he never doubts his escape from them. Then, secondly, there seems to be in all cities a class com posed of people who do nothing else, under the plea of philanthropy, but help these pests to escape retribution. A man is no sooner condemned to death than these peo ple swarm around him, and, forgetting t...

DAILY EVENING STAB. a . | , i ? ? , tastings OF t UNcu. A Rehearsing Clergy.?It seems that in Boston the American public do not counte nance the clergy if they attend concerts. Now, many of the clergy wanted to hear Madame Sontag; and Madame Sontag, like a good lady-like creature as she is, wanted to be heard by the clergy. IIow was this to be managed ? How should the German nightingale trill, and jug jug to the church blackbirds ? Why, Madame invited them all to a "rehearsaland the casuists went. The iniquity, it seems, is in the real con 'ceit; but there can be no sin in the rehear sal of the wickedness.

EVENING STAR. ~~ WASHINGTON: ?+?? TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 1853. The Interests of WaslUn&ton. "What are they! Clearly they are to im prove the city as much as possible, and thus render it a desirable residence. There was a time when it seemed doubt ful whether the capitol of the nation would be continued at Washington. But that time has past. The establishment of the compromise of the Constitution, the large sums expended on the government property here, the increase of the travelling and mail facilities of the country, atd the stretching of the magnectic telegraph from and to all the principle points of business, have settled the question forever, that while the North American Kepublic stands, Washington will be its capital. Thi3 being so, it becomes our citizens to realize the importance of their position, and come up to the full measure of their respon sibilities. What are those reponsibilities ? Among them may be named the following: 1. The health of the city. 2. Its cleanliness. ...

DAILY EVENING STAR. An English paper thinks it the duty of tee-totallers to get the duty off tea total ly JpQ?" The scholar who "fell into a reverie' last week, was immediately taken out, and it is said will recover. Understand what you are writing about, and write so you can be understood ?the easier, the better. Some queer fellow has defined love as "a prodigal desire on the part of a young inan to pay some young woman's board." jyg^The individual who broke the ice with his first stump speech, was drowned in ap plause. A wise man values himself upon the score of virture, and not of opinion; and thinks himself neither better nor worse for what others say of him.

travelling case to be taken into a room at the inn. "Do you stop here, sir ?" asked the coach man. "Yes, for the present. I have a little business to do here as well as at Mount rath." The gentleman having given the usual gratuity to the guard and coachman, and also a slip of paper to Dempsey, which he directed him to give the host at Moun trath, passed into the inn; the coach drove on, and I never saw him again. Dempsey having pocketed the shilling,, looked at the paper with some curiosity, in which, to say the truth, we all shared.

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON : J THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 1853. W?b>ler Abroad. In the California papers there is a state ment that the new9 of the death of Daniel Webster was received in Honolulu, (Sand wich Inslands,) on the 11th of December. It filled his many friends and admirers there with profound regret, and immediately called forth a notice from E. H. Allen, the American consul, informing the American shipmasters in port of the melancholy fact, and requesting them to set their flags at half-mast, as an expression of respect to his memory. There were nearly seventy ships in the harbor of Honolulu at the time, on all which the American ensign was half-mast. On shore, also, the same proud flag was hung in mourning, and suspended from various public places. What a tribute is this to American greatness? In a late English paper we noticed an account of the manner in which the notice of the death of Wellington, was received in Ind'.a. The troops were must ered, the pennons lowered, signa...
