LOCAL intelligence. Baltimore M E.Cosmssci.-Wben our ^port cloaed yesterday, Rev Mr Phelps was addressing tbe conference in advocacy of the -flotations which he Lad :nt:oduc? 4 in a former ' 1'nn for tbe establishment of a weekly raligl *ut |(,urna! to be pub! ?bed in Baltimore. nnd^r t&e direction of tbe two confereiue* After ma king ? powerful appeal In favor of tbe project, be down, aud wss followed by grv James Sewell, who stated that his coa troversies were always with controversy itself; ,. wa4 always conceded that religious quarrels were the ino?t irreligious quarrel* in the world K^v Mr Wilsou liad to-day thought he bad touitd two gentlemen who were just tbe men for (be editor# of tbi? |aper; for himself be thought une of the*e men w.mld not do; one of tbem was toohtry, and tbe other was too britrf?both bad jrtTeti in tbis? meetihit specimens of their abili ties., and he thought it would not do to have fbem at tbe editorial fable. If tbis (taper should be ordered, and we were assailed, we must de tend ourselves. and thereby get up a religious a-vuutent which would lead to quarrels. Let us tff aod conquer by love It would conquer every thing h?l ,b'' devil. This paper might do good; Ult ibey must get very religious editors. Re* Mr. My era followed, saying that, when tfcls project wa!? first started, he had been in favor of It; but. from the rej?ort which had been re reived. K was apparent that we bad got to sup port tbe burden alone. The Fast Baltimore Con ference Lad drawn away from the idea very de t idfdlv. They had in their deliberations very foollv laid the whole matter on the table. The speaker thought it best to defer this matter until tbe next General Conference. He proposed that, as tbe minds of all bad been made up, they now take tbe sense of the conference at once upon tbe lubject. This proposition was afterward with drawn and the subject left open for further dis cussion. and thereupon the conference wax ad dressed by Rev John I.. Gilbert, who took very decided ground in favor of tbe project of starting a paper at ooce He did not like the idea of a controver sial paper; he did not so understand this project. In tbe midst of this controversial warfare, if we bad such a paper as Is now proposed, we could, throngb it* columns, let our true position be known to those who weie in a state of doubt aa to it. Rev George Brooks stated it as his opinion, that it was our duty to our people and to our God to furnish the church with this paper. It would be heartily sustained, and would effect just the work required He should vote for this paper, hoping it would meet the requirements of the Conference Rev. X. J. B. Morgan also, In a somewhat lengthy and very able manner, advocated tbe proposed "Christian Advi? ate." Their people -wanted information, and by its means could l>e informed of their position. There was a general dearib In the bounds of tbis Conference of reli gious literature. Let tbe work go on and at once Tbe establishment of this paper would directly tend to the increased circulation of their books There were but few books adopted to the wants of the people In circulation, and the reason was they did not know of them. If this paper were to !*? established it would inform those in want of the proper books of light oil re ligious subjects and of consequence I no ease the circulation of religious books an hundied told. Rev Mr. Cleitun stated that, as one of tbe com mittee who had reported on the pending resolu tions, he felt it his duty to speak. As to the pro posed character of the paper, the committee did not propose to give It a controversial character It was not the committee's purpose to provoke controversy; the controversy Was already pro voktd, and it was with a view to its allayment mat the proposed paper was to be established They would send out their paper, in oider that jjoua-toned religious reading may pervade the inindsof their people; they must purify tbe moral ?'.moBphere, a d their project must and would fi.evail. Of all the religious pipers now pub i.hed in tbe country, which one was a proper exponent of the platform ou which they stood* Not one This paper was intended strictly a* a rrligious paper, lor family distribution; and the speaker believ,-d the Conference* bad the ability and en- rgy to conduct it successfully. Tbe speaker here suspended his remarks for a motion fnr adjournment. The Chair announced the committee on the af fairs of the Metropolitan Church, a* follows: Rev E. R.Veecb, Rev. E.N. Brown, and Rev E F Btisey. Tm Conference then adjourned, after the Dox oiogf, and benediction by Rev. Norval WUson. roriTH DAT. Tbe Conference was opened with religious ex ercises by Rev Mr. Myers.

Tbe Conference then went into tbe election of Local preachers to Eiders Orders, wbich busi ness was occupying the attention of the session when our report closed. Licrcaa.?A very Instructive lecture was de livered before a large and attentive audience at the Smithsonian Institution on Wednesday eve ning by Rev J. H. Mcllvaioe, of Rochester, N. Y. The subject was "Comparative Philology in some of its bearings on Ktnnologv, nnd embra cing some account of the Sanscrit and Persiau Arrowhead languages." The lectuier, how ever. referred only to so much of bis sub ject as concerns the Sanscrit language, barely touching upon Its ethnological relations. He commenced with a geographical description of India, aud advanced the opinion tbat in that laud was tbe location of tbe terrestial paradise In i which our first parents were placed by the Crea tor. He quoted several authors who argue this belief with considerable zeal, and one of them asserts tbat the description given by Moses of the river which watered the Garden of Eden Is an exact description of the Beram pootra river of India. Be this as it may.said the lectarer, there is no doubt that India is tbe birthplace of the Sanscrit lanuua^e and of many of the arts and scieuces of civilized life. The great antiquity of the Sanscrit language, which surpasses that of any other language now extant, was alluded to, and the lecturer said It could be traced hack to the time of Moses, and how much farther be knew not These evidences of its antiquity consist not only in the date of writings still in existence, but also in the amonnt of Sancrlt literature, wbich greatly exceeds in volume that of any other language, although the art of printing has never been applied to It until within the present century. Some of the works in Sanscrit are the result of the united labor* of several successive authors, arid upwards of a century of time was probably required for their completion. The Sanscrit literature, too, em braces every variety of subject now known In the world i f letters, and long before tbe Germans were in existence, tbe subtleties of metaphysics were understood and voluminously written about by tbe sages of India They invented the syllo gism, too, if it can be called an invention, long centuries bvfore Aristotle lived and wrote. After some further general remarks tbe lecturer proceeded with a detailed description of the Sanscrit language. The alphabet, he said, is called tbe " L>eva Nagarl," probably from the fact tLat " Nagail" was the name of the city wherein it first originated. It contains forty eight distinct characters or letters, each of which have a never-varying and arbitrary sound or power. There are also four other letters belong ing to the language, which are inute when stand ing alone, but when combined tbey have pecu liar sounds, or rather their power is such as to modify tbe sounds of other letters with which they combine Of the forty-eight distinct char acters forty-four are us< d to represent consonant and four to represent vowel sounds. But, be*ide these, from eleven letters of tbe alphabet a e formed eleven others, the powers of which vary somewhat, but a^e still analogous to those from which they are derived. And, again, from the whole alphatiet there are different modifications of the sounds and power* of letters, depending upon their combination with other letters, from which one hundred and sixty-two new characters are eliminated. One peculiarity of this antique language is tbat there are 110 divisions of the woids in a line. A European professor has recently endeavored to obviate the difficulty of learning tbe language which ari*es from tbi* fact by introducing spaces between the words, but the lecturer contended that in so doing he destroys tbe genius and eu phony of the language. In the Sanscrit language tke final letter of one word and tbe commencing letter of another word depend on e?ch other; ihe rule being that ''when dissimilar cousooarits oc cur successively they *hall l?e assimilated." This the lecturer illustrated by writing " big dog" on the blackboard. The rule of the Trau scrit. applied to these words, would render ne cessary tbe assimilation of the sounds of "g" in "bij?" and "d" in dog,*' and the combined words would read "bigjog." In the case with the vowels a similar rule is obsei ved. When a word ending in long "o" is followed by one commencing with "a." the "o" is resolved back to its elements "au;" and tbe "u" is fuither re solved to Its primitive form of "v;" hence the combination is written "oca" instead of "oa." This peculiarity exists, tbe lecturer said, in no other language, except to a slight extent in the Welsh or Celtic. To it is to be attributed tbe euphony of the Sanscrit tongue. The lecturer expressed tbe opinion tbat too much attention has been paid to euphony in tbe construction of the Sanscrit to render it valuable as a medium for tbe conveyance of thought. Thk Fcmkral of Capt. Joseph B Tat* was very largely attended yesterday despite the wea ther, which was the most disagreeable of the season. Tbe religious services at the bouse were conducted by Rev. Dr. Hall, of the church of the Epiphany, who attended tbe deceased in bis last boms The preacher gave an interesting and attesting account of bis later interviews with the departed?of the patient resignation with which the sufferer bore his pains?of the calmness with which be arranged his worldly afi'ai r*, and of tbe childlike attention and sim plicity with which he received religions teach ings. and prepared himself for bis departure to another world. Upon the conclusion of the exercises at the house a most touching scene was presented In the agonized leave-taking by the widow and or phans of the remains of the beloved deceased, and there was not a dry eye in the assemblage. The members of the Light Infantry company and Odd Fellows then passed by the side 01 the coffin to bestow a last mouruful glance upon the pafc> yet pleasant features of the dead. The escort, consisting of the Infantry, Capt Davis, with Wither'* Band, and Central Lod</e and Columbia Encampment, I. O O. F., under tbe marshalsbip of John W. Hodgson, and with Weber's Band, was formed into line, and tbe long funeral procession pioceeded on its way to the Congressional Burying-grouud. passing down Tenth st eetaud along the avenue. At tbe grave, after tbe Episcopal service bail been performed by tbe Rev. Mr. Hall, Chaplain Martiu Johnson, of Cential Lodge, performed the funeral rites of tbe Odd Fellows, and tbe vollies of tbe Infantry over tbe grave concluded tbe mournful cremo nies, and tbe lamented one was left "In tbe deep stillness of tbat dreamy state of sleep." Tbe funeral arrangements, we should add, were conducted in tbe most satisfactory manner by the undertaker, Mr. Anthony Bucbly.
