The proeewion of the Graft, with regalia, banners. Ac., was imposing, though from the heat of the weather it was not so large as had been anticipated. The exercise s at the Smithsoni a n Institute were opened with prayer by the Qrand Chaplain, which was followed by an address by Her Byron Sunderland. The orator, in sketching the rise and progress of Masonry, spoke of other secret institutions, whieh, founded on a wrong basis, had per ished, while Masonry, by force of inherent truth, had maintained its vitality in full vigor. A vivid picture of the process of initiating the neophyte into the Rosicrucian mysteries as detailed in Bulwer's " Zanoni ' was riven. The grand aims of Masonry were mentioned, and it was urged that such a system cannot be dangerous to the three other great sys tems?the family, the state, and the church? but is auxiliary to them. In enumerating the long list of the great and the good who have been connected with this institution, it was stated that Washington was a Mason ; the Generals of the Revolution were Masons ; four-fifths of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were Masons; Jefferson, Franklin, Lafayette, Jackson, and Clay were Masons. The speaker then took up, seriatim, the va rious objections to Masonry ; that it is monas tic, latitudinarian, exclusive, dangerous, se cret, Ac , and disposed of them most happily and conclusively The address was throughout a beautiful effort, and on its conclusion the orator was warmly congratulated by the veteran Senator from Michigan, Gen Cass Afi impressive prayer by Rev. Mr. Hol mean, of Grrce Church, concluded the exer cises at the Institute ; after which the proces sion was re-formed and marched to- the Odd Fellows' Hall, where they partook of a ban quet. ?? An Obstinate Customer ?Yesterday, Mr. Burch of the Auxiliary Guard arrested a col ored man named W J. Payne, and with the assistance of Officer Plowman and others took him before Justice Smith Payne was charged with two cases of assault and battery, and also disturbing the family of Mr. Dyer. His head had been cut in the first attack which he made on bis wife, she having struck him with a fiat iron in the scuffle. The Justice committed him to jail. Getting him to jail was the hardest work He resisted, and was thrown on his back; the twitches were placed on bis wrists, but without effect; the officers dragged him till they were tired ; he wouldn't get up One officer, finding that the strength of the other* was failing, seited a cane, and I two or three smart raps on the shins of the I prisoner had more effect than all their per I suasion and previous efforts. The prisoner I agreed to walk the remaining distance, not caring to try another application of the cane He was a very powerful man, and his obsti I nate resistance of the officers attracted a large I crowd around them.

A friend of the Hon Lewis D Campbell in forms the readers of the Intelligencer in yes terday morning's paper, that he, Mr. C., when he proceeded to address the Whig meeting on Saturday night last, said that he would not speak if there was any objection made ; nnd that whatever opposition was manifested at first, there was none which reached Mr. C's ear when he commenced. Now Mr. C or his friend could not have failed to bear the hisses, in which the writer of this, as an Old Line Whig, participated, which greeted every call of Mr. C 's name by his Know Nothing friends. And if Mr. C. made such deference in words to the rights of the Old Line Whigs who not being members of an;' other party or organi sation alone legitimately composed the Whig meeting, as his fr*end claims for him. the writer did not hear him ; being with others busily engaged in loudly objecting; which he continued to do after Mr. U. npreared, and for which the Know Nothings raised the cry of?put him (the undersigned) out. The fact that the meeting was one of Old Lftie Whigs only (tho public not being in vited) for the purpose of consulting and ad vising as to the best course to pursue in the ensuing Presidential election, and further, the fact that memt :rs of the Know Nothing party and the Union Association were objected to as participators by the Whigs, and were not allowed to serve as the secretary or on the committee, ought to have been enough to have informed Mr. C., who proclaimed himself a Know Nothing, that he was alike an intruder, being: called on only by the Know Nothings and Black Republicans, to speak.
