Mr At Lee. before reeommg his seat, jelled up Mr * ? Jefferson, of the City C ,uncils Mr Jefferson expressed bis embarrassment in replying to the call, as from the nature of his avocations, setting up or translating other people s thought*, he was never presumed to hare any thoughts of bis own. Mr J notwithstanding bis modest disclaimer, pro ceeded to give some very telling and appro pnateoff haad remark* in the oourte of which, he urged that the man who prepares imself t > be a good practical printer, is prepared for other positions in lift. He ru going to be raeh enough on thia occasion to break the rule against divulging State secret* and tell them that if he had not been himself a practical printer, he should not now occupy a place in the State Department. Maj. Ben Perley Poore?Who is not a ?? poor Cr/," but baa given the world a proof that is a 44 pearl of great prise" by his wheel barrow exploit, which his fellow craftsmen re gard as nonpar ul. The Major responded in his happiest styla, making some sharp hits at those members of Congress who treated the press disparagingly in a late debate : told some capital stories, and kept the assemblage in the beet of humon while he was on his lew The Bookbinders of Washington?We greet the presence of some of them here as an xndex that they are still bound to u* bj clasp* of fraternal feeling. Responded to by the President of the Book binders' Association; aad by J. C.

Claxton?Though temporarily away from his stand, we still find him sitting with us on our festive occasions: " May kin shadow never be less;M and long may he wave. Mr. Ciaxton rose and produced a speech, which he averred he had found on his way to the festival, and which he presumed some typo had prepared for delivery on the ocoa* sion. and had lost it on the way. Mr. Claxbon proceeding to read it, it turned out to be a very good one, and muih sympathy was ex pressed for the unfortunate loser by the com pany. L A Gob right, Esq.?An apt ili/tstrattott of what the prrst and the trltgraph together oan do : May be continue to go Irrght in his ure. ful career. Mr. Gobright said be had not been so for tunate as bis iriend Claxton in finding any body's speech, but if any one had a speech which they did not mean to use, be would be obliged to them for the loan of it. Mr. G. proceeded to give tome interesting reminif* cencies of past celebrations of the Society. James English. E<q.?Upright as a man, ac complished as a printer, be is a proof that even in Washington 44 Worth makes the man, and want of it the fellow." Responded to briefly and humorously bv Mr English Maj McNeir?The Nestor of the typographi cal profession, and the accomplished editor: Long may his presence encourage the younger members of the craft to imitate hi? worthy ex ample. Major McNeir, in response, expressed the gratification it gave him to meet the members of a Society which he had long held in high estimation lie claimed to have given to the Society one of its distinguished member?, the lamented W. W. Curran. Thos. C Connolly?The schoolmaster, prin ter, editor and agriculturalist. May he suc ceed best in his last undertaking Mr Cjnnolly, having in brief but felicitous terms responded to this sentiment, read an ode, written for the occasion by Thomas S Donoho, Esq , which was received with great applause. ?lames F. Haliiay?An ex-President of the Columbia Typographical Society He has never failed to deserve the confidence reposed in him by hi? fellow craftsmen. Mr Haliday in responding to this sentiment paid a touching aud beautifully conceived tribute to the memory of cherished members of the Society who have passed from Earth. In allusion to the rapid flight of tine he said he had hoped to pass for a young man on this occasion, but hardly thought it worth his while to attempt it, now that he saw an old appren tice of his (Mr. Beltl presiding at the head of the tahle. S. W Glenn, Esq.?The printer turned player: Having left tae box or stars, may he prove a star to the boxis. Mr. Glenn proposed in lieu of a speech to give a Dutch story, wh;ch he proceeded to do in his usual irreeistahle maimer. A number of spirited volunteer toast? were given, for which we have not space to day. A number of songs capitally sung by Mr. tilenn, Mr Clark. Mr. AtLee, Mr. Penman and other? added infinitely to the zest of the entertainment The festivities were continued until mid night with unabated enjiyment The Supper was indeed a perfect success, passing off with net a single occurrence calcu lated to interrupt the felieity of the occasiou. Smxtbsosias l.BCTi'BES ?The lecture of Friday night wa* by Prof Benjamin Peirce, of Cambridge, Mas? ; subject: ' The National Univer?e, considered as a machine, as a work of art, and as the manifest work of God :* being the first of a series upon "Potential Physics." The audience was a large one, and we no ticed not a few of the juveniles, who hrive listened s'j delightedly to the humorous, anec dotal lectures of Dr Morris upon Entomology, and who we guess were taken a little aback by the scholar like and slightly transcendental effort of Professor Peirce We heard one llt'le ten-year old ask his maternal parent if 44 po tential physics" was ,4 castor oil and such f" Premising that we cannot expect from the geometer those graces of wit and sentimeut which charm a popular audience, Prof Peirce went on to say, that these are in nature the three worlds of science, poetry and religion ; that while there are narrow-minded men is each who have no life but in the world they live in, there are others?8-ieotifi; men poets, and holy men of God, who can rise to a s?nso of the claims of the others In the actual world we find no arbitrary division of the three. Every where we eee inter mingled development of science, marks of beauty, motives to devotion. This union of intellect, religion ar.d beauty is shown in mythology; which, (mythology) despise it as we will, affords the strongest argument for natural theology that can be found. The vedas of the despised Hindoos, those old books, written ? thousand years before the time of Moses, recognised the existence of a Supreme Bsing, who was the Soul of the un;vt?r-e, all* wise, all power's! and existing through all time. The lecturer proceeded to read numerous extracts from tho Hindoo Vrdas in corrobora tion of this sta ement That this was an an terior revelation is die-proved by the clear, striking defects found mixed op with these passages Thus an almost Pantheistic belief was expressed in these b.ooks ; a belief in our absorption in Deity after death. The antiquity of the Vedas is proved by the fact of the men tion m them of the polar star. In all ancient literature no reference is made to a polar star till you go back to the time of the pyramids. It is not mentioned once even in the Old Testa ment In fact there was no polar star from 2 500 years before the birth of Christ until ab?>ut three centuries ago Twenty-five or thirty five hundred years before the birth of Christ there w*s a polar star (not the present polar star) and as this star is mentioned in the Vedas they must have been written at least one thousand jears before the time of Moees The facts connected with the histjry of this belief in one God and its declension first to the worship of light, aad finally to the worship of various idols, were deemed of importance by the lecturer in showing the true bearing of ihe first chapter if Genesis. The scientific teachings of this chapter were of comparatively li:tle value to its religiojs teaohin^s At the tiiue M *es wrote, the Jews were in bondage, and naturally had imbibed from the idola'rous Egyptians views antago nistic to the true belief: aud the aim of Moses was to bring them back to the true belief. The Egyptians worshipped light. Their three highest deities were Morning. Evening, and the Sun Naturally, Moses taught that light was not an object of worship, for God created it Did not Moses, in speaking of 41 Morning and Evening." have especial reference to the Egyptian gods? The firmament, the earth, the ocean, the sun, the moon, all worshipped under different names by the pagans, were all . declared by Moses to have been created by God, and were consequently not objects of worship.
