evening star. WASHINGTON CITY: THURSDAY AFTERNOON, JLNE 2. 1P5. . [^Communications intended for publica tion in tho Evening Star mu3t be accompa nied with the name of the author. Continued Increase of the Star. It is certainly with feelings of undis sembled pride and pleasure that we find ourselves sble to announce the continued and steady increase of our paper. The growth of its list has been constant and regular: and of late, the demand for copies has been and continues to be beyond our most sanguine expectations. Some of our " respectable six-penny" neighbors would be quite surprised if we were to show them the route books of our car riers. All that we want now is a permanent increase of advertising patronage. Ad vertisements, it is well known, are the life-blood of every paper, especially an in dependent one, like ours, that lias no par ty but the party of the people to depend upon. We are glad to find, however, that this party is sufficiently numerous and powerful to answer all...

EVENING STAR. Great Blessings and Little Troubles. Did you ever meet with any body who was not ready to tell you some little trouble? Are we not all too quick to think and talk evil ? Though the tide of mercy rolls in ten thousand blessings, we stand on the shore and weep, because a little worthless weed has floated beyond our reach. What was the weed worth? Nothing save the fictitious value of possession.? Close by anchors the great ship of God's bounty" and we own large shares in its exhaustless cargo. * Each moment the busy angels ascend and descend its mighty sides, and bring treasures to our very feet. Here comes one with broad sunshine, through which we see the ever changing loveliness of the eternal hills. Another brings glorious health. Pure water sparkles in her cnrstal goblet: its taste, its hue, sweeter, more brilliant,' than the pampering wing of fretful sick ness. Another lays a beautiful tyabe ]n our j arms, stirring the heart's deep fountains j with a new and deliciou...

A friend has handed us a copy of the first number, first volume, of the "Wash ington Expositor, and Independent Polit ical and Literary,Gazette," issued in this city in 1830. The paper is a curiosity in its way. We cannot please our readers better than by making a few extracts from its columns. Among its articles are adver tisements of the "Baltimore lines of Stage Coaches," in which the "Opposition Steel Spring Coaches" are announced to leave Washington at 5 o'clock in the morning, so as to reach Baltimore "before the heat of the sun becomes so oppressive, as to make the ride uncomfortable." The boat for Alexandria, (of which there was but one,) made three trips down and three up during the day. A boat left "every day at m. for Fredericksburg and Richmond. Fare, 38,75."

Convict Labor.?There is one subject that we think the present administration would do well to consider: that is, the course pursued in the United States pri son in this city. Many worthy mechanics have often ex pressed the opinion that it is not right that they w ho have served years of honra ble apprenticeship should have the value of their labor decreased by the government employing convicts to do the work which the honest man ought to do. Is there no way of employing convicts except in mak ing shoes, boots, carriages,etc. Is ii right that the product of the convict's labor should be offered in the market where honest men are selling ? Was it intended that the product of the convicts' labor should be a source of revenue to the gov ernment ? It may be asked, upon ...

The recent election in this city has aided to produce one good result?the in creased conviction among our people that our representation should be brought to bear more directly in Congress. The idea lias too long prevailed with regard to Washington that it is nothing but a Gov cr,nnetit Pauper? receiving great pecuni ary benefits from the National Legislature, but giving back none in return. Now we rcject this idea altogether, as not iy absurd in theory but as false iu fact. It is true that a large amount of money is annually appropriated here by our law-makers in the Capitol, but it is equally true that only a moiety of the whole sum is distributed in this city. Washington gives to the Executive, to the Departments, to Congress, to the Su preme Court of the United States, a variety of local ...
