LECriTEE Oil THE CHINESE BLVOLU TlO.f. A lecture upon this subject was deliv ered by Rer. C. A. Washburn, on Wed nesday evening last, at the Smithsonian Institution, an abstract of which we give below. By some accident the gas ! could not be lighted, and it was feared that the lecture would have to be post poned. By the aid of candies, however, j the forces of darkness were held in I check, and the orator proceeded. By the time the lecture was half finished, the hosts of darkness were put to Hight, j and the house was thoroughly lighted. The lecture was a fine one, equal to that 1 of the eloquent .Fletcher on Brazil. I In commencing, he rapidly ran over I much of the history of China, showing < that this nation haa remained entirelv ] isolated froiy all intercourse with foreign I Powers till 1245, when they were con- I quered by the Tartars; but they were I soon driven out, and the Ming dynasty i ascended the throne. < But they, in turn, were displaced by < the Mantchoux, the E^stftb '1 artars, who < have held the throne tver since. Among t the Emperors of that race, several have i been renowned for much energy and sa gacity, and one, if their history is true, was equal to Charlemrgne. On con quering the kingdom, the Mantchoux r inflicted upon the people insults that to this day are looked upon as most igno- t miniuus; and now, though they have t accustomed themselves to their burden, j they hate the conquerors with all their [ former virulence. In fact, the people t have never been subdued thoroughly, and effort* have often been made to throw off j the yoke that so much galls them. Se- f cret societies have been known to exist g for a long time, whose sole objtct has been to concert measures against their * rulers ; and though many of tiitir chiefs i have been punished, they still cojtinued 1 to plot. The whole country has con- 1 tained the smouldering sparks of rebel- i lion only waiting an opportunity and a t leader, when the merest breeze would \ fan t hese sparks into a flame. The leader, ] opportunity, and exciting circumstances j has been found, and we see the result. i He now described the leader of this ( revolution as having been born of poor i parents. When young, he was a good ? student; and as he grew older his dispo- i sition became morbid. At twenty-four ] years old he was afflicted bv a long sick- < ucss, during which time he conceived i that he had received orders to extirpate < certain demons, and in his delirium he I was constantly battling with them. On ( recovering, his former madness returned i and continued until until he was thirty- l three, when he met with some books left 1 by an American Missionary. Upon read- i ing these he asserted that he had obtained < the key to his visions?the demou he waa commanded to cast out was idolatry, and i the person commanding him Divinity, j Shortly after, he professed Christianity, i baptized himself, and commenced preach- i ing. Ere long he had gathered around i him a large number of followers, and < then, like Mahomed, he conceived the i idea of attempting political revolution, i Like Mahomed, he received fresh re vela- i tiou as to the course he should pursue, i and Foon, like him again, was at the head of a large army. , The means employed by him to raise this immense force was his wire working on the two moat powerful elements of the character of any people?patriotism and religious enthusiasm. He asserted that he was the lineal de scendant of the last of the Ming dynasty: also that he was the Son of God, sent by them to deliver China from the Mant- < choux rule. This auuouncement called forth all the ardor in Chinese organism; the Mings were the last of their own sovereigns, and they, too, firmly believed their Emperor the Son of Heaven and the brother of the Suu. Thus the cunning man, while ha was preaching a new faith and overthrowing the idols they had so long worshipped, interwove with this new faiih all their prejudices and intense patriotism. The old Uuth?Buddhism? they care nothing fur; it has last ?us char acteristic ftaturts, and has sunk to the lowest buiijouery, and they would glad ly exchange it for a tangible faith that they can respect.

As yet, Pekin is ui - touched, and the Mnperor is safe, but he is despoiled of the best part of his no* ??ions. One great element of their success is the corps of preachers in their service, whose duty it is to excite the people to a crusade against idolatry and the M.??t choux, by rehearsing to them the wrongs they suffer from them, and setting before ihein the glory thatairaits the liberator* of the country. Thus multitudes of re ligious and political enthusiasts join the army. I Tai-ping-wang is a man of great sa gacity and cunning, He knows the points by which he can best secure andi hold the affections of the people, and he avail* himself of it. The idea used by the subtle Louis Napoleon, when he a/ turned the grey ovcrcoat and cocked hat ofhi8 illustrious uncle, is carried oct much more fully by this pretender, tit has so costumed his army, assumed such j ceremonials, and so regulated his staff that the men of letters say it is an exact copy of the appearance of the Court of the last King fcmp<*ror. The people are thus reminded of their departed power, and more easily excited to attempt to re' gain it Mr. W. concluded by reviewing the probible success of the revolution anil the benefits which would accrue to the! world should it triumph. He thought I the late edict agaiust "foreign devils'" would not have been issued had not the English and Americans in that countn laid themselves liable to the suspicion of favoring the imperial cause. The libtr U principle which started with this movement will not be entirely lest?but will act like leaven, till they are felt from me end of the nation to the other. The :ountry will be aroused from its apathy, ind innovations meet with a more favo rable reception than ever before THS FAITHFUL FA8TOB II? must prrach c'w? Go.pcl in family circl<? m nariy tannine* wiii nt v?-r b* ar it. It is a great mistake (says a writer in he Vermont Chronicle) that a good pas or will not be likely to be an able' ?reacher. True, his sermons may not I je learned essays, as is true of much hat is called "able preaching," but if udged by the gospel standard of able preaching they will so. This accounts or their signal success. God blesses | inch men. A faithful pastor hai a powor over his) >eoplc that can never I* gained by preach ? ng only, no matter how able it may be. Ie is known in every family and beloved. The poor, the sick, the children of eor ?ow, the widow and fatherless know his I read and voice. Both are music to hearts that know little of cheer besides. Ie knows tke name of every boy and i jirl in the range cf h?? labors. If there 5 an anxious sinner, he finds it out, and | inds many he would never have known, f he had not gone to them. Those who cannot go to church, he comforts and ittends the aged down to their graves. Many that otherwise would never have entered his fine meeting bonse, or hare regarded the minister as too proud to some and sec them in their humble cot tages, or farm homes, have their preju iices removed, and become his warmest! Friends, and are brought to Christ. But r?r that visit he might have preached all the able sermons he could have written, rod they would have been none tlie bet-1 ter for them. The fact is, the gospel must be carried, in the living voice of a minister, to many a house, or the families will never have I it. Multitudes in all our towns will never be reached by the pulpit. In sight of our church, they will no more come to the gospel than the heathen n.v Lions will, and will as certainly perish if the cup of salvation is not carried to them. Even then, many of both will dash it from them, but not all. A man who is now a worthy member of the Congregational chureh of has frequently said to his pastor, 44 If you had not come to my house, and con versed with uie there, you might have preached till I was dead, but I should never have gone to hear you. I supposed you wtre a proud man till you came to see me. J hated ministers and church members, for they never took any notice of me When you took so much pains to come to my house, and was so familiar, I thought you cared for me, and 'every woM went to my heart. You are tbe first mininster that ever cam# to my house. I had no idea that a wretch lilu me could ever become a Christian, lor years ago I had abandoned myself to despair, and was going, with all my fcmily, to hell, and I knew it. My hone was a hell every dsy. But when you encouraged me, that so vile a man as I might eome to Christ, I felt a resolution moving in my breast to try. three weeks my sins crushed me down. At JastI gave all trp- and east myself ou Christ as undone, and he spoke peace t? 7 soul. From that moment the power my habits was broken, and 1 have been in a new world. All this I owe, under (9od, to your visit. Thanks to God for such a minister?" '1 his man lired far hack in the moun tains, four miles frtxo the Tillage. Two iargs churches, tor nearly half a cantury hid existed in the town : able ministers had settled there: and yet this man, torn in the town, the father of ten chil dren, at this time nearly sixty Y*ar? of age, had nercr beard a sermon, had never read the Bible, h t children bad nercr been led to the Sabbath s^kk>I. and ha-dly knew of such a think as the Ssbbnh; he hfd been a miserable drunk ard from his youth?poor, profane, de graded, dishonest, and despised. This man and his wife became praying people, erccted the family aliar. learned like children the words of God, taught thair little ones to kneel with them, to say their prayer*, ?nd ftar God: hs immedi ately clothed hirase f and family, took a pew in the church, and himself and wifs are now among the most esteemed mem bers. Ecropbax Emigration.?The Emper or Napoleon has just issued a decree reg ulating the system of emigration to and from French ports. Its prorisions are cnlishUncd and liberal. Every facility is afforded to German and other foreign emigrants passing through France to transatlantic ports, by the exemption of Ibeir hsggaec from examination at the frontier, and certain modifications are made in tbeir favor in the passport sys tem,- which will relieve them from a Et deal of annoyance and difficulty. grant vessels are placed by it under severe regulations, as regards space, clean liness. ventila'ion. quality and sufficien cy of provis:ons, and the number of pas sengers allowed to be tak?n on board. Gubocb Statistics ?It has been cal culated that the cost of washing linen that tnr.'ht just as well be worn fwodtjs loogtr, amounts to enough in this coun try te more tbau defray the expenses of the American board of Foreign missions. The expanses of buttons worn on the backs of our coats where they are of no earthly use, is fully equal to the support of our Orphan Asylums. The value of tails to dress coats, (of no value in reality fir warmth or conveni ence ) is actually greater than the coats of our exccllt-nt system of common schools. 5^T*A Havana letter states that the new battalion of Catadores are armed with Minnie rifles, in the use of which, it is staled, they have made great progress.
