evening Star. lOCAl INTELLIGENCE. A<mv?RSABY Mkktim ?Th? third anni Ttr *ry tnee'ing of the Washington City Young XtD ? Christian Association csme off at the -auhsonian 00 Tuesdsy evening last, the 6th lad In order to give the reports of the oft carswe have been obliged to defer the pro ceedings to this late hoar. The services were opened with prayer by Jchn Berg, of Baltimore; after which toe retiring preeldent, Z Richards, K?q de livered hi* ?aiedietory address. This wae fel lowed by the reports of the librarian, treasu rer. and corresponding secretary, and the introduction of the president elect, 0. 0. "Wight, Bsq yrom tbese reports we leant that the asso ciation has. among other things, establish*! a Sunday school in a destitute part of the city, which is attended by nearly ona hundred pu pils; also, a weekly Bible class for young men ?t their rooms, which is well attended. During the last year. 148 names have been added to the list f-f members, making in ail about 4C0. During the past year, 433 books have been Added to the library, making in all 1,473; there are also 863 unbound magasines. Ac., and 224 pamphlets, making a total of 2.550 books, Ac , now in the library. In the past year 2,935 names bare been registered in the risi'ors' books, showing an increase of 1,524 ever the preceding year. The reeaipts of the year amount to $80j< 52. made up of dues, do nation*. Ac The expenses for the same time were $858 72?thus leaving the association in debted to the treasurer for a small sum, which will soon be paid. A eonferation has been f >rmed by the asso ciations of the United States and tha Prov inces There are now 343 associations in oper ation throughout Christendom. After a few appropriate remarks by the Fres dent elect, the orator of the ''ocasicn, Kev Jas A Duncan of th:s Citv. was intro duced and delivered an addrr?"worthy him self and the oocasio*. an ttract of which we give. Mr Duncan *?tm>^eDOe<j remarking that the idea most -t,reCede the act. The idea which preoed'jd tbe formation of tbe Young Men a ^u^stian Association evidently was that ot 'usefulness. The founders caught the spin'. of Christianity, and the Bible planted :o their hearts and minds tbe impulse that preceded this organisation. This is a guaran tee of success But the ide~ of the As'ocia tion should be the idea of each member I therefore propose to you as a motto, both for the Association and its membar individually? ' Make yourself lutful and you will sue r**d To be useful is to rightly answer the de mands made on us by the laws cf Qod and our own social happiness, Isefulncss do?o not neperd on place or rank, but is the duty of all, and real life opens a field already white unto the harvest Look over the field of life; have the wante of all men been met ? Are all tears wiped awaj 7 Do hearts no longer blcai ? Does vioe no longnr lead her victim? forth to the sacrifice ' Is there naught elsa to do but rest? No; human happiness is still in jsop ardy, and socie'y still needs men of honest, generous sentiments and useful labors. Though, in this land, we are exempt from many evils common in other countries, there is still room for the most active beneficence <'ur very privileges and immunities impose treat responsibilities upon us. In the enihu tiasin a?d daring of American li:?, there is a great artna for usefulness. Men of praotical wirdooi are the only ones capable of giving ".be conservatism necessary to our pros^eritj; they guide the ship of Stare in the true chan nel, when without th?m tbe hunicane of party strife would hurry her ou to the breakers and leave ber a shipwreck This it the age for the practical man; use fnl. honest Ubor. in any department, is at a premium, distinction md power are the gifts labor bestows on its devotees. Every one should aim to be useful in every day life; it can be done without the loss of any of the moments devoted to butiness. Every man cannot be a Howard; but every man whether in the workshop, coin tin g-rx>m. or office, can be advancing the public good without inter fering at all with his daily avocations. The man in steady, honest employ, is not an inert material, but an active, positive force. Tha vary existence of honesty, integrity, and in dustry does good. One of the chief hinderances to usefulness in this age is the haste used in despatching every kind of business, whether for ourselves or others. This is an age of huny, no matter if the he use is half built, you are in a hurry; no matter if the cars do run off, you are in a hurry, and so is the news that everybody is in a hurry to read. The printer reads the bur riedly writteu letter in a hurry, and so prints it wrong in a hurry, and harnes '.be newsboy with it to the office, where it is in the great hurry sent in the wrong direstion. Our young men hurry through their oducation, (?) hurry into business, ana in iheir hurry to make a fortune, lose sight of truth, forget duty and become worthless. A thoughtful man, though delighted with the progress of the age, cannot fail to notice that this bust* Is injurious to many valuable interests of eoeiety He spoke of the growing disposition to com bine tCbrt in almost every department, and thought the tendency should be guarded and guided, lie did not think with some, ttjpt it savors of a want of individual independence ; but that it might be made tbe most resistless source in the triumph of truth. In this field friendships are formed, and moral and intel lectual strength eoncentraftd Here can piety, energy, and resolution of character be felt in all its vigor To be useful, we must be sternly true An unreliable man is a burden few like to have attacLed to their engagements We must %lso be diligent, we must n'>t waste time, talect, money or opportunity ; all have the meant to augment their own usefulness; instruction is not cot fined to college walls, but oan be gath- 1 ered from all sources; it is not needful to use fulnc?s that you be a genius, nor ia it a proof of dullness that you are not; though not gifted with splendid talents, you may still cast your mite into tha treasury of human hap pineee. Genius may fascinate, but fascination is not usefulness Ureat talent must be ap plied to a good purpose, or it will advance wrong; it eannot be inaotive. Talent occu pies its right position and its highest elevation when identified with the best interests of man. But the possession of great talent involves a fearful responsibility. The parable of the talents is often reversed ; he who has ten tal ents more often misapplies or covers them than he who has but ot>e When 1 say, " be useful and you will suc ceed.' 1 do ?ot say that only the useful will reach the flattering places ef transient honor, but 1 do say, thai none but the useful will resch an enviable fame tie is not sucoessful who merely heaps up treaaure If the sordid pssnon for wealth be the germ, the tree will be evil, and tbe fruit of u long life's toil will be as bitter as the apples of the Dead Sea. Success has as many meanings as meu have objects oT pursuit Some have one meaning, and others have a d ffarent one But the meaning we preler is not so muoh tha attain ment ot that which is desired as that whieh ought to be. It is to secure our own bappinans ? nd that ef our fellows as far as wa can. This does Let prevent prosperity o^ivancement; for the useful must finally att9 tha honor of the grod. Mm need not fear that they will not be ap preciated if tfce mine contains gold, some one will find it out; too many glasses are sweeping ? he horison for a star of any magnitude or value to escape notice Men of taleat have ?l;ed having gained but little honor; hut if we examine Uteir idiosyncracies, we will find that they bad but little sympathy with tbe real in. 'erests ol men ' Be tsefhl. and you will suc ceed To show the truth of this statement, he com Eed the life of Johu Shore, afterwards Lord nmouth, with that of the brilliant Richard B. Sheridan, and applied the comparison to the illustration of his subject with much ability lie concluded by addressing the AsMoiation in commendation of the c<>or. a thus far, and urged ihtmto still further endeavor.

VL8 w,thout making the strictest in^uirv abou? the person so soliciting A yoUng and very interes'Jr.g little girl, between the age of eight and nine, called upon one of our citi LtUrf h* for h" beae^ol?nce, and asked his aid in the way of some wood, stating that her mother was in great distress At ter ?king her several questions, to all of which she gave ready replies, the gentlem?n was ?o welljMaae 1 with the apparent tru:hof her 'tat^^ents that he took her address and at once ordered the wooi to her mother's resi dence Prior U her leaving he requested a gentleman who was presentduring this inter view, to take her to a grocery store, where some generous person had lefi orders to dis pense a certain amount of tea, coffee, sugar, Ac to all who were indigent and needed them On his way thither with the young girl, his WeJ? wor1*ed uP?n by observing the pitiful covering to her feet, and ho at once took her into a shoe-store, and purohased a pair of shoes for her. On reaching the grooerv the gentleman who brought her there, and the recommenda tion of the donor of the wood, both of whom TrVui t0/h# 1ore k?*P?r. the several W,#r? onc* fnrnished her, with a few additional ones, as a present for himself. Now for the sequel The first person applied to for aid, desirous of ascertaining the aotual oon ditrna of thu oase. requested a friend to go and make some additional investigation Accord ingly, he started upon his errand, and pre vious to calting upen the address given him, he called up*n some of the neighbors to make seme inquiries respecting her, when he was told that -h-iy Uaf plenty of means; that the woman, represented to be the mother of this girl washer sister; that she had $600 loaned out to a person in this city, f?r which she de rived regular interest, and that she bad funds J th* bank. After this, the gentleman's deputy made a oall at the house, which wa? answered by a young lady, dreesed in elegant style, wttn a gold watch and chain encircling ner neck, and which, on inquiring her name, be found to be a sister of the mendicant The house waa neatly furnished, and on looking into the yard, he observed a good supply of wood Thus, it will be seen, how neoessaryit is to exercise the utmost vigilance; for the gen tlemen here spoken of are men of great pru denee, and yet they were deoeived.
