The lec ture was of course an sole one and commanded the entire attention of tbe audience. Tbe speaker commenced by saying that a thou sand volumes doubtless have already been written respecting tlf great civil war wbtcb has deluged onr ctunuj, aud a thousand more will be written, and. if well written, read. Tne American war is destined to exert a lann r and more beneficial in fluence on the world tban any other that baa ever occurred; and the speaker thought that it ought to he studied calmly snd candidly, and bo hoped that while be should not try to make it a theme for tbe entertainment of bis aoilcncs, they would give him the credit of lacing a broad and lair view.

Both the comparative and absolute conditions of educated democracy are the safeguards of the Government. The result of our war has nobly demonstrated the value of popular in telligence. lb'* country was apprised into the war unarmed, her head vacillating and powerless, while her enemy was long before prepared. Its leader able anr. firm In his purpose ; yet tao peo ple wen* on with Ihe calmness of consciona latent strength, resolved to triumph oyer their as sailants.

Female clerks in Wuhlncton, The number of female employee in the Treasury Department has become so great, and many of them are so inefficient, that the question of making a clean sweep of them la undergoing serious discussion at Washington. A great many, propably the majority owe their appointments not to their merits or rapacity, but to the solicitation of friends, and a gnat many more to the mere fact that they are women, and dependent «<n their own exertions for support. In so fur as women have anything done for them in the Government service which would not be done for men. or are kept in places which men would fill better, it is simply an abuse, which would assume monstrous proportions whenever women were admitted to the bal lot. If women are to he “emancipated " (at-d we think they ought to he), they must take the hardens as well as the privileges of active free life. If marriage Is to cease to be their vocation any more than men's, they must compete on exactly equal terms with men in all employments and occupations; and the time has come for this rnlc to be faithfully remembered and rigidly enforced. The state of things, we may add, in the Treasury Department, if there be any foun dation 'for prevailing rumors, has not been of a kind to encourage an extension of the eystom of employing women in large num bers In public offices.—.VW'on. !Bsrrl«Mi<s Tlcer Hunt, IFrom the Next York C: Jren, December 15.1 The most vigorous am! pertinacious light against the “ tlcer” ever made In this coun try came off on Wednesday night last.
