EVENING STAR. L0CAL INTELLIGENCE. SCIMCB ard IT. Mission -Lecture before the 1oung Men i Christian Association last night at the Smithsonian Institute, by Dr L H Steiner . ' 3 He commenced by speaking of the value of truth, the March made for it by true s'uients and the suoeets thej met with, compared with the liuht found by superficial observers He thought the term science sadly misapplied when given to the art of a Hyer and a Sul livan, or to the useful or any other arts for these arte are the truths of science practical iaed for use Science ects as the vivifyirg ?gent, the idea which requires mechanical ap pliances to adopt it to our wants; but thoegh thoee appliances are wanting for ages, yet this idea is not lees real though ideal, because it is an emanation from trath itself. At last the idea becomes actualiied by means of talent is applied to a practical purpose, and becomes the basis of a useful art Thns it is seen that sconce is rather the mother than the elder sis ter of the useful arts. The discovery of principles, and their appli cation long afterwards to some now indi?pen sable art. proves the axiom that "the discov ery of no scientific principle is to be consider ed of minor importance, although ages may intervene before its utility may be shown to the world." Science is that form of knowledge which seeks out the elementary principles of things eollecs the leading truths underlying all' other knowledge and is the basis of all the useful art: it is attractive to this utilitarian age. because it enables us to achieve results that can at once be applied to the uses of life It is also attractive because adapted to the inquisitive nature of the mind Labor is the lot of man. and science shows the way in which that labor can be performed to the best advantage. Science opens the way for the cultivation of I philosophy and poetry It furnishes the phi losopher with thore facts from which the in dicative method selects the prevailing spirit, and throwing ir into a finished and perfected form, rounds off our knowledge with the ivrn ?f?th iilh# P?*trJ?f science pre sents itself in all her varied forms ; alchemy paints and flavors the lily ; steam is the type of the age, the symbol of strength and gentle ness ; and a far better idea of vigor and en ergy than was presented by the aneient con ception ef the Titian poets ; see these poetic relation* in science, and are beginning to pre fer them to the eld personifications, as more beautiful and true. The mission of science is to aid man in ?olv iog all the physical problems which connect his relations to the world around him, and to be subservient to religion as a means cf sub itantiatmg and confirming the great truths which are embodied in the revealed word ? ST?.:;*** Pbi,090Ph7< ?*,p?fficially cultivated, leads from God; but when taken in large draughts leads to Him " The histo v >f science proves this, seen in the eases of geology and astronomy. Superficially viewed they have seemed to eome in contact with re ligion, upon further knowledge they agree with and eonfirm religious truth. Wo can safely ascribe the atta?ks on a newly discov ered science to ignorance of the science itself Further knowledge will show where the error lies. and the perfect accordance of science and Tsllgion. Sometimes the same apparent anti-religious position is assumed in the opening of a branch cf science. which may be seised on by the artful and turned so as to give scope to a Isititudmarian view with regard to religion taai result in the boldest infidelity. Then science, jealous of her own reputation for revercnce to religion, raises up one cf her own sons, equips with prop:r weapons, and sejds him to exterminate the traitors in her camp. He may come froiu the higher walks of life, but morelikvly f.em h humble station?frori the quarry, a. a Hugh Miller, a chosen knight f do battle for science in her glorious mission on earth By such means she strips infidelity of the robes it has stolen from her own abode and leaves it expostd in its true and naked deformity to the acorn of the world. Tna Win or Contributions.?In all next week contribution# will be received to the great exhibition of the products of the skill, taite. ingenuity, and industry of the Amer ican people, at tho Smithsonian Institution, iu this city. This exhibition, as we have here tofore remarked: has been gotten up by the Metropolitan Mechanic*" Institute under the management, of Mr lhrm;is C. Connolly su perintendent, and we are well assured that it will prove a display of great magnificence. >iot wnly the main hall of the edifice, but nearly the whole lower range, together with a portion of the upper part, will be devoted to the purposes of the exhibition At night on seme special occasions, the entire edifice will be brii.iantly illuminated, end even in some of the towers there will, at times, be colored and drummed lights Music will be well provided , the contributions of instruments are numerous and a band will always be present. Tfce machinery department will comprise a large number cf exceedingly interesting in ventions. and there will be ample steam power for tfcelr propulsion We shall marvel much if any portion of our feJlow-citiiens shall be found indifferent to this great enterprise It Is for the benefit of the whole public, and we regard its encouragement by all means in our power as the daty of every ci:isen A New CocNTEH/aiT. ? The Baltimore American of this morning says: "we were yesterday shown a counterfeit $5 note of the Farmers and Mechanics Bank of Frederick, Md . whieh so little resembles the genuine note that thee would be no danger of its being taken by those familiar with the is sues of the bank The counterfeit has a vig nette of the ooat rf arms of Pennsylvania, two horses rampau', Ac . with the motto "Virtue Liberty and Independence " On the left is a figure of a female holding a sheaf of wheat in her hand and oa the right a female head wreathed with grapes Thomas W Morgan :s gvten as Prandent. and W.

The genuine note is of very plain at nearanoe, with a centre via- ( nette of Xeptui.e and Amphithrite, with the tea and a vessel in the distance. There is ' also a small figure on the left of a female holding in her hands the soales of Justice whilst at her feet ia a portrait of Washington' Ihe paper of the counterfeit has a bluish tinge, wuilst that of the genuine Das a yellow tinge A number of theee notes have been in circulation in Baltimore for several weeks past. ^lLLaans Uors ?We understand that the regular mgkts for "parlor hope" at Wizards have been changed to other nights in the week, and there will be none there this evening We ltarn that this change is made to keep out, as lar as possible, the large ncmber of "out 'lders who attend the heps. tritkaut %nv\ta~ in such large numbers as to exclude the gueits ef the house.

JobnM. Hung Th* Sbvbwth Lbcttrb oh Vbobtatiow, waa delivered by Prof. Gray, on Monday night, at the Smithaonian, and >u devoted to the his tory of the Flower and the Fruit. He commenced by saying that all the or gans of the flower and fruit are is some wav robeement te the production the protect^ of the seed. The relatione between the blos som and vegetation was firat cooaidered A s branches are evolved from buds, ao are blos soms and leaf-buds, and flower-buda are often much alike in their earlier atagea 8om >times flower-buda are turnad into leaf buda The petals, Ae , are familiarly called the " Ieavea ot the bloMom, thua recognising an analogy between them and the ordinary Ieavea, and therefore between the whole flower end the branch Inconsequence of this. It waa next notloed i that flowers accord with branches in their pe tition ; flower buds Always arising from the ?sme point* that leaf-buds do, via: from the exils of the leaven, er the summit of the stem , or branches, giving origin to two modes of arrangement of flowers in oloaters, a simple ! 1 *w. answering to that which flxea the position i of the leave* and branches in vegetation, also 1 fixe* the position of every blossom, assigns to i ? ?ch cluster its shape and character, and in- 1 dicates the precise order in whieh the bios- ' soma are to expand i ! he struoture of these organs was explained; ] the petals, stamens, and platila ahown to be modifications of leaves, the whole flower there- 1 fore a sort of branch with a very short axis. The gradual and complete tranaition of leaves . of the calyx Into petala, and of petals into ? stamens waa shown in the bloaaom of the ! water-lily. J In illustration of the doctrine that all parts 1 of the flower answer to leaves on the branch, ! the various forma of the leaf were passed in review, showing that when any speoial offiae ' is to be fulfilled in the plant, nature does not create a new r-rgan. but adopts the ooinmon - organ, the leaf, and adapts it to tha office it is i to fill Thu* they are seen in the seed leaves, J in the tendrils of the pea and gonrd, and in * the bod scales, which, in mcst trees and J shrubs. closely enwrap and protect the tender , tips of the shoots in t' a winter, So, in the * blossom, they are leav< \dapted to still other \ conditions which comp< - the envelopes of the flower or appear as s nens. which contain the yellow fertilising i ?der called pollen; { while other leaves folt^d inwardly, and their 1 edges united, form pistils, the united margins ' of the transformed leaf bearing ovules, which after fertilization by the pollen applied to the atigma. have an embryo formed within, and thus become seeds. j _ The change takes place at a very early pe- t riod, when all the parts of the forming bud are nearly similar; but what answers to, and 1 might ba*e been developed as an actual leaf, 1 takes a different mode of development, and becomes a stamen or a pistil. A parallel ' case was mentioned in soology. The compar- ^ ative anatomist reoegnises the arm of man in ? the fore arm of the monkey, the fore leg of the cat, dog, ox. Ao , modified in the details to suit the peculiar conditions of each particular " animal ; and recognises it no leas in the fore limb of the bat, where it serves the purpose of ' a wing; in the two wir*gs of birds; in the fin ! like arm of whales and dolphins, and in the pectoral fin of the fish These are all homol ogous partB; so are all the organs of the flowor; and, havii.g no ona general came to embrace them all, the leaf, being the earliest and the most universal form, ia naturally taken as the type, and all the others regarded as modifications Toe lecturer then considered the symmetry of the flower, and the prevalence of the num bers 3 and 5?either the one or tha other of ) these numbers usually running through tha i whole blossom?and stated that the foundation t for this waa to be found in the arrangement of ' the leaves on tho stem, which was fixed in each spscies by a p-ecise mathematical law. ' He thea touched upon the disguisal of this symmetry in many blossoms by the union of various contiguous parts, and upun deviations I from symmetry through the abortion or sup- 1 pression of cortain parts this was illus- 1 tratcd by referring to cases where parts wbioh exist In the flower are suppressed in the fruit, as in the fruit of the beech and the acorn, 1 where only one seed is found at maturity, ' though there are always si x rudimentary seeds \ in each ; istil Only one of them grows and ripens; the other fire are abortive cr sup- ( pressed with perfect regularity. Several i gTades of simplified forms of the fl >wer were then exhibited, elaslng with the blossoms of the pine and apruce, as the most simple of tree flowers ; one kind of these flowers con- J ristin^ of a single stamen alone ; the other, i of a pistil alone; and this pistil being a flat scale or open reduced leaf, bearing a pair of I ovules or seeds on its inner face, directly ex- ( posed to the air, and to the pollen from the 1 stamens, which acts upon it directly. The aetion of the pollen and the formation J of the embryo was then briefly adverted to As the embryo is formed, the ovule beeomes a seed ; and the pistil, with whatever may be connected with it, becomes the fruit. Tha principal modifications of the fruit were then illustrated, beginning with the simple pod. , nut, or berry, or stone fruit, such as the ober ry and peach, ar.d passing te the more com plex fruits. such as raspberries, strawberries, tracing their analogies with the fruits of the rose, quince, apple, Ac., and closing with il lustrations of fruits which result from the union of a great many flowers in ona mars; such as those ot the mulberry, pine apple, bread-fruit, the flg. and mnny others. ^ krsek s Sitper.?Mos' of the readers of the Star remember tte case of Charles Wer ner. tried under the Corporation law. known as "the liquor law," upon which an appeal was taken to the Circuit Court. Upon the de ciiion of the Court, Mr. Werner made a bet with several friends, and losing the bet, be gained the suit Last night, he invited bis f i:nds to a supper at his house. He had pre pared everything in excellent style, with plen ty of it. A section of the National Crass Band was there, under the lead of Chas. Bergman, and of eour?e there was good music A lively company, good jokes, all helping to pass the evening merrily. We heard one of our old citiiens express the wish that Charley would always be as successful when he had bats on the isiue. Th* Sbcoro Grabi> Ball.?We learn that the proprietor of the National Hotel intends, on the evening of next Thursday week, to give his second grand ball and auppar. Extensive arrangements are being made to make this o le of the finest affairs of the kind that ever c^ae off in tbe Metropolitan oily. Tbb Wooprull Ann Sblpbb Casb ? Judg men* has not been rendered in this oaae, and le' hi jus ice deeido as ha will, it is con fl dciitly expected that an appeal will be takan from bis deoision, and tha case oarried belere tha Circuit Court Consequently some months will elapse before the case is settled. It is a teat case | A Nbw Fibb Compaby ?Wa learn that a number of young men held a meeting laat night, in the First Ward, to take the prelum > nary atepa toward the organisation of a new hoee company. Wa have not heard what measurea were adopted but we have no doubt of the suocess of the undertaking, as the young men of that ward are of the ' go-ahead'' sort. Tbb Abpbior Qiartbt Bard intend giving a concert at Odd Fellows' Hall, on Wednesday evening next. The lovers i f fine singing will have aa opportunity to enjoy a treat on this occasion, as this band are justly ranked among the best singers in our city. Hbllbx. thb Cokjubbr, baa engaged Iron Hall, wbieb he intends to fix up In a gorgeous manner, in which to give his wonderful exhi? bitions. ?? Criminal Court ?This Court adjourned this morning until Saturday. The jury in theea?e of McNaney is still out If they should agTaa. they will bring in a sealed verdict. Watch Rbtlrbs ? There were no oaaea for trial at the guard-house this morning. The streets were quiet, and the guards had but little tr. do but keep moving in order to be comfortable. T~7?
