Ths Municipal Elections. In a few days more our citizens will be called upon to cast their ballots for their local government officers. This is a duty o ? at all times important, but especially so at the present time. Our city is entering oil a career of prosperity which it has never before known.

The Gardiner Case.?After the conclu sion of the District Attorney's very able address to the jury, the counsel for the defence submitted the case without argu ment. This move cut Mr. May off from the closing of the case. Many persons had determined to lose a day or two to hear this learned gentleman address the ury, and the disappointment is very uTeat. Many reasons are suggested bv the citizens for the move on the part of the defendant s counsel; but the lawyers have their reasons and we very much doubt whether they will express them to any . ne not connected with their business. 1 he jury retired to their room about 2 ??'clock yesterday: since which time many statements have been made as to how they stand. We have no right to know, nor has any one else, until the jury reports to the court. All the rumors may be set down as nothing. We can know not...

EVENING STAR. Donxegtis Opera in Soston. An enthusiastic friend of ours and his . wife, having become so carried away with the furor awakened by attending two nights at the opera, that it is the hardest thing in the world for them to restrain their disposition?the more so, because they are both proficients in music. The other morning, while ordering his dinner, the butcher?a sedate man?was surprised to hear our friend shout out, with most emphatic enunciation:? " "What will you take For that ere steak?" The butcher winked at his partner, and answered with an air of composure "A shillin\ sir but it was evident that our friend was down in the day-book of his estimation as a lunatic.

Our Criminal Court.?The Gardiner Case which was given to the jury on Friday last, has caused a vast deal to be said respecting our Criminal Court.? Indeed some have gone too far entirely with their expressions, and have made assertions for which there is no founda tion. In all this long and wearisome trial, in which the greatest skill of able ! lawyers has been exerted with a view to cblain decisions from the court to favor this or that side, mistifying thi* authority ml strengthening that, arguing hour af er hour, and day after day, it is not wonderful that both sides should at times be disappointed.

Some of our friends have probably thought that in our municipal programme of Saturday last, we laid out quite a large field of labor for the city fathers about to be chosen by the people. But we entreat them to remember the excellent practical motto ofone of the best men that ever lived ?William Carey, of India?"Expect great things : attempt great things." It is the high province of the eagle to aim at the sun. It is only your "mousing owl," or prowling bat, that is satisfied with flying on the low grounds of selfish and sluggish indifference.

The Sabbath, School Festival.?It is sel dom that the streets of any city have presented a more animated spectacle than appeared yesterday during the turn out of the Sabbath Schools of Washington.? There could not have been less than four thousand children in procession at one time, while on the Capitol grounds the whole assembly must have numbered at least four times as many. The music j and banners, the neat dresses of the juve- j nile, with their handsome boquets in their hands, their cheerful faces, as they marced along the broad avenues to their place of meeting, the aspect of the throng, as it gathered in the grove under the shadow of the Houses of Congress and the fulds of the Star Spangled Banner, all gave a zest to the occasion which those who witnessed it, could not fail to enjoy. The arrangements appear to have been all well made; and had ...

Monopolies of all kinds are detestable ; but none are more so than those which control the necessaries of life. Monopo lies of bread, meat, grain, fuel, and arti cles of such descriptions, are always odi ous ; but the most detestable of all is a monopoly of water. It is almost equal to a monopoly of the air we breathe. We doubt not there are some wretches crawl ing over the face of the earth, who, hav ing monopolized as much as was within their grasp, of lands, and stocks, and the ataffc of life, would buy up all the air, if they could, and sell it out at so much a mouthful!
