The finarces of the association ?re not in so good a condition a* is desirable, though stiict economy has been aimed at iu expenditure.-, and the Treasurer has labored indefatig*b!y. The hope is expressed that the pecuniary con cerns ot the society will soon bo satisfactorily arranged The library has received an addition of some two hundred volumes, making it? present number about seventeen hundred volumes. There has been a gratifying increase in the visits to the rooms List year there were re ported 2,72<i recorded visit.*.

Upon concluding his report, Mr. Wight in troduced his successor to the Presidency of the Association, Mr Win J. Rhee*, who followed in a few remarks expressive of his sense of the honor conferred upon him, and of the respon sibilities involved, and then introduced to the audience Rev John C McCabe, of Baltimore. Mr. M)Cab? announced tue suijeot of Lis lecture to be lieniu*?its misfortunes and infirmities " Without going into a critical disquisition upon the naturc>,f genius it migh* be defined in genera! terms as the highest at tribute and point of mental po*er. Touching briefly upon the characteristics of art and taste as relating to genius, the speaker ea terod upon the more immediate subject of his lecture That m^ny errors accompany the cireerof men of genius was admitted, and it was doubtless wisely arranged thus to aff>rd a check to the pride of human intellect. The lives of men of genius thus marked were passed in review?of Chatterton, that marvel ous boy. poisessing all the elements ?nd attri butes of true geniU3, an infidel at sixteen and a suicide at eighteen ; of that nobleman of nature. Robert Burns, with a muse bold and vigorous as his native streams, and beautiful as the ft owers of bis native mountains, yet with faults too glaring to be denied, and who was doomed, through neglect, to end a life glo rified with conscious genius in quarrelirg with smugglers and gauging liquor barrels; of Cowper. tender, innocent ani confiding, with wit and humors' will, yet the victim forye-ara of the saddest melancholy?a species of reli gious insanity -and whose dying moments were eaioittered by a dread of eternnl punishment; of Byrcn; son of a profligate fither, of an ill tempered mother, who was crossed in his first love, and whose first literary eff ort was bitterly assailed by the critics, and who, uni.appy in marriage, chafed and goaded in spirit tied from home and country, and with health nd genius impaired by excesses, died among strangers; of Shelley, that aristocrat >>7 birth and y ? t firm believer in the nobiity of nun, that angel touched by lunacy, who lived in a storm ot bis own creation and [erished in ? storm raised by bis God ; of that strange an l won derful man of our own times, mighty in his weakness and weak in h s might, that modem Prr metheu-i chained to the reck of hi* malady that chili of sorrow and fcotg, Edgar. A. P-?e. Of these names, linked as they are with frail ties and follies, l'oe seemed to oombine the in firmities of all the rest Misfortune seemed to mark bim from the cradle to the grave. He rever krew a mother's Ijvc Like the Wandering Jew, his: j rit was continually cry ing for *urcea>a if ?>rrow He has gone to his grave but too recently to have his place assigned him. but his " Raven," had he written nothing else, would waft bim on its wings aero s the gull of oblivion It was a sad hour for Edgar A Poe when be selected a Griswo'.d for a biographer. This work, in its revengeful spirit, was contrasted by the lec turer with tbe generous tribute paid to poor Poe by bis benefactress, Prances S. Osgood, now gone down to the grave The lecturer claimed that we should treat tenderly the infirmities of such men. How different might their fate and career have been under more favorable circuinttanccs We should take int? consideration the morbid condition of literary men brought on by ex cessive application?of sinking spirits suggeet ingstimulants, bringing their train of evils. The moral urged by the lecturer in conclu sion was that, \ irtue?moral worth?not Ge nius is tbe true imoaorialiser. We must ad mire Genius, we must love, almost adore the Benefactor 'tenius is th? panoplied giant ; Moral Worth is the white robed angel.

At that meeting there were present more than four persons, of whom were citizens?no police officer being present. And although the meeting wa^ very small comparing in point of numbers with similar meetings in the Fourth and F;fth Wards, ret there were a chairman and secretary ap. po'.ntca, and n resolution passed asking the Counsils to make a liberal appropriation for the poor (f the entire city There will bo a committee also appointed to collect funds to be^distributed amongst the poor of tho Ward Xhe Second Ward has always taken good care of its poor as well as its polities, and for many years has been foremost in its charities, not only at home, but for sufferers abroad. ?our article was so ex'remely uncharitable, exceptionable asd uncalled for, that I thought it but sheer justice to notice it, and place the matter right before the public.

Dr. Cummings, of Trinity church, ad dressed the meeting, and a remark by him at tributing the invention of the title of " Libe ria" to President Latrobe brought out that gentleman in a pleasant disclaimer, who ex plained tho part he reallv had in the matter while in the law office of tien.
