MlHi* EVENING STAR. A G20D ORGAX WELL DESCRIBED In the progress of these ske ches, I shall have somewhat to say on the sub ject of organs. Be it understood, r.cw evor, that 1 lay uo claim to any artistic knowledge of their nature whether me chanical or musical, and do not speak in the capacity of a critic. But I havo an inborn paitiality in this direction. To roc, when a boy, the organ loft of the parish church had the same attractions that belfry and bell-rope is said to have possessed in the eyes of the youthful John Bunyan. Quite naturally, then, my attention was directed to the obser vation and study of this most sublime of instruments, as found, in their excel lence, among the churches and cathedrals of the Old W orld. My lirst experience of organ playing abroad was in ??ublin. Iu the shabbiest and vilest portion of that ancient city corresponding to the parish ol St. Giles, ini London, or the Five Points in New \ork, stands the fine old cathedral of St. Patrick. Imposing and grand in its ex terior, its interior is damp and gloomy always, partaking, in spite of all efforts to the Contrary, of the decay and dtso la'ion that reigns around it. Bat incloseu within the oaken gallery above the choir, like the diamond in the toad's head, i. an organ of most mellow and delicious lone. Tradition saith it was seized among the spoils of the celebrated Spanish Ar mada, and presented by j;ood Queen Boss to her loyal sutjects in Dublin, a-, a mar k cf o-pccial regard. It was deigned, no doubt, by the boastful Philip, to lead i:i the Te Deum for his victory. Two hun died years time has blackene . its casing to the hue of ebony, and corroded the last particle of ornament lrom its pipe*, till it presents a front like the portals c: Newgate. But a uiai velous beauty it hath in its voice; as though it joined to Sax>:t strength the soft voluptuousness of iti Moorish origin, and had merged all as perities from being much tossed in ships, as good wine is mellowed in a voyagt i through southern seas. | 1 was fortunate in that I wa^ present 1 on a festival d?y in the calendar, when | the impressive choral service of the E:ig | iish Church was per formed by a choir of [ twenty-four ma'e voices. On this occa sion the noble organ put forth its full j powers. It boasts none of the em be 1 | iishments of modern structure: no rc ; duplication and coupling of registers? nr I swell?no sesquialteta, and ctemono and vox humano stops. Its chief glory is in its solemn di?pasons, pouring forth an aval a nee cfseuud which moves on evenly, majestically, religiously, the very em bodiment ot praise to God. It is said of this instrument that the music lovine George III. offered 110,000 pounds to have it removed to England, but without success. Of its precise size, its age, and place of birth, I cannot speak with au thority. 'i he wonder is, that in all its vicissitudes on sea and land, and the de cay and damp endured for centuries in its ill-conditioned abode here, it still holds, to all appearance, its pristine vigor.

AMERICAN INVENTION IN G3E*CE A plan has been set ou foot for form ing a depository of American manufac tures and inventions, in relation to which an address to the manufacturers and inventors of this country will be found in another part of this paper. The Greeks are a race remarkable fur quickness and* activity of intellect be yond almost an}' nation in the world. They are now in a state of rapid intel leclual progress, and the advance th.-y have made in ctvil z*ti< n and knovl*Jge since they shook oil* the yoke tf thr Turks, is wonderful. With their ready apprehension, and their facility in adopt ing improvements made by other na tions there is no doubt that many of the inventions of American ingenuity which arc applied by us with such success in the useful &i is, would be instantly do mesticated ia Greece, tf they were but to becoire known to such of its people as { osscss a turn for mechanics. Grecce, though an old countr}-, is in seme re spects Si new one, and has many of the wants which are flit here. She has cities to found, houses, churches am! civil edifices yet to erect, bridges to throw over streams, canals to cut. rail ways to construct, wharves to build, and moles and breakwaters to make for the harbors of her extensive coast. 1 he want of these works is urgent, the hands to prepare them are few, and the means are scanty. Greece is, therefore, in need of labor-saving machines, in need of all the appliances which in our country per form such tasks with the least exertion of labor and the leas: expenditure of money. We have among us a worthy citizen of Grecce, Mr. Evangel rdes who has taken great interest in this subject, tad who has charged himself with the task of con veying to Greece the specimens of Ameri can manufacture and invention which shall be contributed to the dejxwitory of Athens. There are first to be sent to the American Institute iu this city, and then they w ill be transported to Grecce. Many persons in this country engaged in manufactures and in the production of machinery have expressed their satis faction at steing this project started, and a determination to aid it so far as might bs in their power. We hop; the de pository will, through the friend y zeal of this class of men, be so richly en dowed as to prove creditable to our country.?A>ir York Evening Post. fBEEKAS0H8 IU TURKEY Although freemasonry has for more than thirty years been generally supported to exist among the Mahommedans, and ; traces ol it were found in Turkey by the Russian ctttws after the c&mpiign of THE WEEKLY STAR.

It a-pears now to U proved beyond all doubt that the Tur kish brothers who exercise their masonic duties, under the name of Dervishes, are to all intents and purposes the same as our own order of freemasons, with but very htt.e dillerenot in the customs and ceremonies, and making use of exactly the same sigrs, words, and grips, to rt? cognize each other. The Turkish free masons appear to be in a more elevate! suteof cmhxatioa than is usual amongst the Orientals generally; their views of region are far higher than those imposed by Islamism; they reject polygamy, con tenting themselves with one single wife, and at the masonic banquets the women appear unveiled-a striking proof of the mutual confidence the mascnic brtthren repose in each other.

ATTACK CP ILtPHilirs CH THEIS The Manchester (England) Giardun slates that during the visit of a mer.auL ne to that town lately, Samuel IlarrisJn, -0 years of age, who had been the keep er of the elephants for the last two \ ears, after the closing of the menagerie was drinking with some relatives from a dis tance. and it is supposed that, ha vine stayed he had been locked out at his lodgings, and (doubtless in a state of considerable intoxication) had thought of the straw in the den of the elephants as a preferable l*d to any he could find elsewhere, under the tfrcumstances. VV hether in the attempt to accomplish his purpose after getting into the den he had taken the straw from or otherwise irritated the animals, cannot at present be known, but it is conjectured that he disturbed them, and that in the dark taking the intruder fcr a strauger, they both attacked liiui, beat, and trampled upon him wuh such fury that his cries of -murder!" at three o'clock in the morning called together several police officers, who knocked up Mr. and Mrs. homonds, the proprietors, who slept in a traveling caravan forming one of the car nages of the menagerie. They rose, got a lfght, an i on reaching the elephants* dm found the keeper stretched on the fl>or, and so much bruised and cru.shed by the ponderous animals, as to be quite insensible, moaning piteeusly. None of the police officers dared to en ter the den: ao Mr. and Mrs. Edminds went in. and gradually drew the crushed .ratue of 1 ue pooi* fellow to the edge of the den floor, whence the police trans fei red h*m to a shutter, and he was borne to the Manchester Infirmary. Besides oth^r severe internal injuries, two of his ribs wtre broken, but with care it was hoped that he might recover, and be able to jcave the Infirmary in some four or jive weeks. The elephants are two per forming females, "cow and calf," the young one being about half-grown, and both usually good tempered and plavful. Llephunts are, however, suhjeot to "sud den paroxysms of furv, in which they attack even those be.t known to them and two others seme years ago suddenly at Licked Mr. Wombwdl, jr.. and killed ii:m. Llarrison himself fa/s thai he had got into the den aad had laid down on the straw, when the larger elephant, weighing 70 cwt. lying down to rast, came with its we:ght upon him, and, ts he says, "he heaid his ribs crack with the enormous pressure." lie denies that he was at all attacked, and says it was purely accidental.
