LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. (ilCTCIt AT TBI Smithsonian ? Last nl<jht was the occasion of a very Instructive and lnter? mating lecture at the Smithsonian Institution, by Prof Felton. of Cambridge. Mw . on ??Mmlern Greece." The audience *??< large and appre ciative. and the discourse apparently smve gene ral satisfai lion Itehmd the sjwtker were hunt; a numi?er of lar<??? painting* representing various ??t'jert* of note in Athens Among tbe*? we ob ?eiv?d one showing one side of the pirscnt citv. with the Acropolis. one ol the Acropolis as it was supposed to have app?.ved during the reign Ol Pericles. one ol the Acropolis as it appeared in l-.1l, and a large outline imp of the ancient city. llefore commencing his lectuie. Professor F. briefly ilev rilicd these and st.ited some of the most proiniuent historical farts in theirconnec tion . remarking that when his subject was an nounced, be had not expected the opportunity of delivering more than one lecture in this city, and therefore was unable to dwell at length on the ancient history of Greece during the present dis course. Accordingly he f, 11 compelled to pa-s topic bv. and confine himself to the pie.-ent cord It ion c-f that classic country. Those of his hearer* who h ive rend Hyron. un derstand the feelings awakened in the mind of that great poet by his first visit lo Greece, rightly culled t lie ?? hi11 ii - place of the .11 Is and sciences lie w:i< !? d to look upon the inhabitants as a de generate rare, destitute of ambition or a desire tor national freedom and "lory. In his beautiful poem the ?? Giaour" he re< ords his thoughts The iff turc: here a leiiylli) extract fiom the " liiaonr'' iu whb b occurs the well known line: '? ' Tis Greece, but living Greece 110 more " Byron's llrst visit to Greece was in Ht], and on his return home in the fall of that year he wrote and published this poem. He subsequently, however, 1 hanged his mind in re^-a d to the Greeks, when he visited their country again iu I-HI, for be then discovered that there still re. main* d among them some r.f tL;it spirit which had renderttl their land illustrious in the olden time. They wereabont preparing for the attempt to remove ihesjailing yoke laid u|>onthem by ttie Tutks, and in l-*2l the revolnt:on broke not and ton?inu<-d until hh. During this struggle IJ. ron was aijain in the coniitry, and by his presence ?i id fortunes aided the valiant llellatiaus in their ? libit to frte their couutry from the tyranny of tbeir barbarian rulers. It was 011 that soil, in the inidst of bis useful ness. that he was struck down by the hand ol death in ISO, and in his decease ti'csic lo?t a noble patron and warm friend. The Grecians felt this, and soared 110 pains to do honor to bis memor\. and airplay the atbetion they enter tained lor him. T'ror F related various circum stances attending the death ol this ^rcat uiaa. and dcscribcd the discourse pronounced over him, and the funeral ceremonies attending the delivciy ol his remains into the chaige of his daiii. hter. ?? sue h honors IIIion to her heroes paid, And pcT-. ful slept the mighty Hector's shade." He then noted briefly the changes which have befallen Greece. With what shocking barliari ties she was visited by the Turks ; how the wtst ern European powers'finally lnte;fered, and how a treaty was submitted to the Greeks which pro. vided that they should have a separate govern ment extending over a small, and the hast de sirable portion of their territory, and inclndinvf only -onte of the {?.?*Uit??or lO.COO.ttP.i of the>r people; bow they rejected this preposition indignantly; and bow the difficulties were at last adm-ded. and the government vested 111 Leo pold. King of Belgium. This monarch, ho* evtr. 1 esigned shortly afterwards, a> he relused ?o liecjme the instrument for the oppression of th'< inhabitants of that ill-fated country. The gox-erniuent was afterwards carried on by President Podistro tor several yea's, ami finally a throne was established by the'powers of West ern Kurope, who placed upon it Prince t>tbo. of Bavaria, under whose administration the coun try Las since remained. The present condition of Greece furnished the theme for the remaining part of the discourse, and the lecturer dwelt with peculiar pleasuie on rhe eii oina^em-nt which public education re ceives from the nobility. These interested them selves personally In the prosperity of the schools, and entunrated the scholar* to undivided etlorts to attain proficiency in learning, t In the death of on? lady, a teacher, the .Minister of Mate, wro ? an official letter of coiul ilenre to family, fo whom a gratuitous annuity was afterward-i al lowed. He concluded l>y displaying n book, now the pr??perty ot the Smithsonian, which was made at the suggestion of a yount* lady of Ciete, for the World's Fair at Pari*. It < ontains plates illus trative of classic localities in Greece, and wild flowers are pressed in the leaves. It is a llia^nif ceat a If sir in every respect, and was awarded a prize medal The buy at whose suggestion it was made. had. through her own exeitions. ac quired a thorough education, and bad studinl Alahomil:* dan law for the pnrpo-eof endeavor ing fo reclaim her father's fortunes, which the Turkish government had confiscated because the owner part ic ipaiid in revolution.
