They were h<*re jalned by these schools, and then this large body of scholars marched to Pennsylvania avenue, and thence to Seventh street, to tne Smithsonian Institution. They attracted a great deal of attention a* thev passea along Long before the arrival of the procession p-rsons began to repair to the Smithsonian building, so that when the schools arrived they found almost every available seat assigned for the audience.

Mr. Miller, who had recently returned from a tour of 4,000 miles in the Southwest, gave a glowing account of the proap?cta of Bell and Kvcrett In that region. The Club received an accession of about twenty members during the evening, and the proceedings were of the mast spirited order. The meeting then adjourned. Thi Potomac Water Works ?Capt. H. W.

Mr Tayloe, being absent by reason of ill heath. Dr. Clayton took the chair It being announced that the Hon Mr. Maynard. M C . of Tennessee. was in town, a committee waa appointed to wait upon that gentleman, and invite him to address the club In a few ininutea thereafter, Mr Maynard entered the hall, and waa greeted with three enthusiastic cheers He then addrrased the club in a forcible and impressive manner, assuring them I a w ? a i? ?* -- * mmm iu i rnnwe ana V irginia all was right, and that hla Information from the whole South was of the most cheering character He commented at aome length 01 the probable eflect of the electlr n of Lincoln, which he regarded aa liable to subject our Constitution to a strain to which it had never yet been submitted. Alluding to the republican party, be quoted from a speech of Hon. Henry Winter Davis, of Md., made three years ago, In which that gentleman, in allusion to the same party, asked with (great significance, "Why cumbers It the ground?" What earthly use was there fur such a party? Whatever necessity there may have been in lti56 for such a party, in the opinion of a portion of the Northern people. th?re certa nlv was noue now. Mr Maynard was warmly applauded throughout his speech, which was throughout interesting and impressive, and delivered with his usual propriety and clearness Mr W ins low M Watson then offered a series of resolutions, embodying a tribute of respect to th? eminent public services snA n..u.u mr mimaie?nair a million. But that is of much Irss consequence than tlie prompt and proper execution of the work. But the water from the Potomac will he"obtained and brought through the city for an amount within that sum? though it it said that titere will not be enough left to complete the great reservoir. The Cabin Jobn Creek bridge, over which the water is to be brought from the Potomac, is now to be completed. and will be one of the greatest triumphs of architecture and engineering skill anywhere found in the world This magnificent work will be quite bidden from public view by the difficulty of access to it. An appropriation will, therefore, it is hoped, be made for the construction of a good carriage road to the bridge, and. when this shall be done, Washington mav boast of a drive equal, in reapect to beautiful and romantic scenery, to any in the country. ritprblica* Meeting Last Nioht.?In accordan< e wil public notice the Republican Association met at their * Wigwam'" last evening, and among other preliminary business transacted, was th<? nattanrf -? ?* - * * *! ? , v. a>ci vi revolutions MTrrely censuring the Commissioner of Public Buildings for refusing |>ermission to the Republican# to e-ect a Liberty Pole.

The Association adjourned to meet on Saturday evening next for the purj>ose of org^izing a glee club and listening to a speech from Mr J J. Coombs, who is about to leave the city to stump the west during the campaign. We understand that a person from Occoqnan, Prince William county, Va , was present at this meeting. and made a brief statement relative to the di ttteulty consequent on the erection of the Lincoln pole at that nlare n? ?????? j ..v vuiu uia |>viuntai ff lends tLere bad at first detertn i ned to protect the pole at all hazards; but inasmuch aa military bad been ordered to Orcoquan, under the command of Gen Hunion, (who though he had declared his purpose to protect life and property, had said he did not regard the pole as such,) they stw any attempt at defence would be uselew. and therefore intended to submit to this O'ltnire, es he styled it, though much against his will. \Vashi*gtos Mkthodists asd thk Niw Chaptrk?The Baltimore Christian Advocate publishes the proceedings of a meeting of the laity | of MtKendree Chapel, In this city, held on tte '?th inst , In reference to the action of the late General Conference upon the slavery question. At this meeting a preamble and resolutions were adopted and ordered to be published in the Church paper. The resolutions are couched in veru nite language, and u repudiate and condemn the entire action of the General Conference " They regard the newchapUr "null and void:" condemn the installation ?.f ' ultra-abolitionists'' as editor* of all the Church periodical* for general I circulation; determine not to follow tbeir crusade against the old discipline, and approve the courae of Dr. Bond, editor of the Baltimore Christian Advocate. We have been informed by members of the other Chapels' societies that the opinions of most of them, not expressed as vet by general meetings, will be expressed by written protests, signed ov the members of the societies The new chapter does not affect all the Methodist churches ?only those who are attached to the Methodist Episcopal churches adhering to the old General Conference after the former division. The Southern Methodist Episcopal Church was the result of the former agitation of the slavery question The Methodist Protestant Church has nothing to do with this controversy. Their discipline does not admit or a baili for a sUvery controversy An attempt wm made to Introduce the subject in a late General Conference, but tbe Dositlve determination of the Conference not to t>e disturbed by it gave the friend* of the idea an opportunity to withdraw, which they did, and stand by themselves In the western SUtes.

With thts exception the Intelligencer has been published regularly for sixty years.

Editor Star: My attention baa only just now been called to the enclosed piece,which appeared In your very widely-circulated paper some time back, but which I hope It la not too late for the complainant to throw some light on.

To your numerous readers in Howard and Montgomery counties this explanation is altogether unneresairy, as the facts are so well known to each and every one of them, (and many would rejoice if he proceeds of this great sale would be appropriated to the liquidation of many large ana ol d Judgments,) but for the benefit of others who have seen this piece, which was imposed on your reporter, I drein it just to myself and others to show what an Immense pecuniary loss we have sustained in this valuable family of negroes Yours, respectfully, Thos.
