At the meeting held on Thursday night week, an amendment to the constitution was adopted, authorizing the addition of two members <> said rommittee from each ward of the city; three additional membtys from the lieorgetown association, nnd a like number from the Wash ington (ierinan association. Mettlngi of the ward associations were held ad interim. at which the additional member* were nominated, and the principal object of the meeting on Thursday night was to consider said nominations The meeting having been called to order, some preliminary business was gone through with, .- fter which the chair announced that the next "UJiiirw in i>rurr wm iuc cirivivn 01 uiemorrs w 'be sssoriatlon whoif nominations had bjfn re ceived at the previous meeting.

Mr Scanlan's case disposed of, the reports of nominations to the executive committee from the various wards. Georgetown and the German As ociatioii, authorized by the amendment to the constitution at the last meeting. were called for. They were reported a* follows: Nomine** from the First Ward?James Kellr, Frederick T. Wilson. Second Ward?J P. Hil ton, W. Blanchard Third Ward?A C. Rich ards, M Ward Fourth Ward?T.

Krzyanowskl ^ecret^ry Clephane desired to know if Mr. Welnen, oue of the nominees from the Fifth Ward, was a member of thia Association * If not, he could not be elected to thU Executive Com mittee Mr J H Wise had no objection to these men whose name* had been sent forward from the Fifth Ward, but he did not think they had been properly elected. He did not know until to-night ibat such a meeting had been held in the Fifth Ward, aud he now learned that there were but five members of the Fifth Ward Association present at that meeting. It bad been understood that the Fifth Ward Association would meet here to night and elect two nominees to the Executive Committer Mr Henshaw said he was not at the meeting h!m?"lf. and could say nothing about the election not beiu;; a proper one. They did him the honor to put his nime on the committee, and he sup jK-sed it was all right The meeting had been regularlycal.ed. and if any did not attend through ignorance that it was to be held, it was their own fault. He supposed tha' if a man was a member of a ward association, he wa? competent to serve on this Executive Committer Mr Clephane ?"Not under tl?e constitution, which s?\s th'it no man can be a member of this onimittee who is uot a memt>er of this Associa tion. The call was not made to the ward associ ations, but to the members of thla Association residing in the several wards, to elect these candi dates for the Executive Committee " Mr. Henshaw?The gentleman has refreshed my recollection about the matter, and I am better posted than 1 was before i am infsrmed bv a Kentlemap by tny side, that the call wai made by all tbe members of tbe republican party. Mr J U Wise said it was bis understanding of tbe case, that In order to be on tbe executive com iiilttee a inan mu?t belong to this Association; and b? moved tbat tbe nominations from tbe Flftn Ward be laid on tbe table till the n-it meeting, and tbat tbe Fifth Ward Association be requested to meet here next Thursday ni^bt, and make their nominations. Mr Hensbaw.?I am Informed tbat Welsaen was balloted Into this Association; but tbat tbe Fifth Ward Association was organized just at tbat time, and be paid bis Initiation fee to that Asso ciation The question was taken on Wise's motion, and carried. Mr Bacon now o&e'ed a resolution rescinding ?bt amendment to tbe constitution adopted at tbe last meeting, and appointing a committee to make preparations for tbe inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. The Chair decided that a pnrt of the resolution contemplated a further amendment of the constl union, ana therefore the whole mint He over till tbe next meeting, under the rule*. 11 wu tben naTrd that the secretary be empow ered to rut the vote of the Association for tbe ad dit unal members to tbe executive committee sent up from tbe varloas wards, from Georgetown and from tbe Germatf Association. Somebody moved to lay tbe whole subject on tbe table for oue week. .Mr J. A. Wise?Mr President, I move that? [Cries of "Order," "order," " bah !"] Mr Bigier ?1 move to lay that last motion on the table. [Laughter] J A Wise.?f move to amend the motion to lay on tbe table for one week, so as to postpone the election of these additional committeemen for four weeks [daughterand hisses ] Mr. McNair wanted te know why tbe constitu tion had been amended, and what was the object of th.s increase of tue executive committee ? The Chair did not think It was Its duty, or any pert of its duty, to enter into explanations at this time ot tbe object of the aaociatlon at a former mertan1 in ?tniv tK? rAnaiittitiAn M'r'Vc Nair.?But the chair Las juit explained other matter* rue Chair ?Yea; it ia the duty of the ebatr to ?s;<lain and deflae questions of order, but not to Ko Into an explanation of the aort the gentleman requires Mr McNalr attempted to go on, but waa moat peremp?or1ally coughed, sneezed, laughed, aud hooted down. The question waa then put on the motion to lay the motion to poatpone one week on the table, ai d carried unanimously. The question then returned on the motion U empower the aecretary to caat the ballot of tbe as sociation for the additional executive committee men, and was lost by a large vote Mr. Bacon now moved that tbe aaaociation pro ceed to vote for the additional executive commit tee-men, and that la doing so the secretary to call tbe roll alphabetical.y, beginning with the lettti A. and checking off recti name as called, other wise we might as well submit the vote to a street rabble It would be Impossible to ie:rtember the names of all tbe men te be voted for, aad thia wai the only way to overcome tbe difficulty Secretary Clephane sug^eated that as tbe Asao cunon naa Juax postponed tne election of mem Ur? from one ward, and decided to go on to Uu r ertlon at otber* by ballot, why not postpone all of them till the next meet**?. and antborizt the Serretary to prepare printed ballota, an that every nan could aee and know what he waa voting upon and whom he wat voting for. Mr. A. Hunt thought morn time would be waatod by delay. The Chair ronld read oat the nominee* from the Firat Ward, and they could be balloted on, (there were only two namti from each ward, and everybody would remember that many,) and ao on, till all are elecWd Let the Chair read out the nominee* from the Firat Ward, -?.l 19 ?k ~ anu u lucrc wa? nu u'tjauu 11, v??vr upuu turiii, and then ro on through the whole Mr. McNalr, who had been watching hi* op portunity for some time to edge in a word, here interposed, and aaid that he had had great diffi culty always in trying to speak in this Associ ation He never could speak two minutes at any one time without being interrupted. He had never hsd a chance to speak, except on last Thursday night; he was afraid he never would have a chance to speak here?the chances In his opinion were very doub'ful [Laughter.] He thought the suggestions of the secretary to post pone very good ones. He wanted to inquire into this amendment to ths constitution He did not understand it, and therefore thought it must be an important matter; particularly as the Chair at his reques'. had refused to explain It. [Here the noise making elements present commenced to hiss, cough, cry '-order," "order," etc., and Mr. McNalr began to grow exasperated.] Continuing, be said that he bad heard that (he executive committee was totv* enlarged; that they proposed to elect one another. He hoped the don trine of you tickle me and I'll fickle you," did not prevail in this association ? [Here the confu sion sis'imed a more portentious form, and Mr. McNalr began to realize that his remarks were far from agreeable to the assembled republican?.] Mr. Higler rose to a point of order. Under a rule or me association no man coma speak longer than lire minutes at a time (Confusion and cries of " Order, lio on. Sit down. Pitch in Leatber lunts, Stop him, Order, Order, Wade in," etc ) McNalr, with the thermometer of his temper at 212, Farenhelt. exclaimed that he was continually interrupted and insulted by a parcel of youngsters who were remarkable for more brass than brains. (' Go on, Hit >m again ") They had better not do it any more, (laughter.) for If they did he should excoriate them to tbat extent Mr. KrvKinowski.?Mr. President, Is the gen tleman a member of this assoctatlen ' Mr. McNalr. explosively.?You sit down, ?ir. (Screan.s of laughter and cries of " Stop, Oo on, Order. Order.") Mr. Mcltalr drew himself up to bis full height, and casting a withering glance of concentrated rage upon bis opponents, trai about to go on when Mr Clephane rose to a point of order. The mo tion was to postpone the ballot, and the gentleman whs not speaking to the question Mr A Hunt?Mr President, 1 think It would he well to Inquire who has charge of the insane aHKo ^* /???? 1 vi tuv i/io?i iv.1 vt wiu iiiwio . y uuoi a ui iaiiH u vci f which continued for some time, in the midst of which Mr. McNair sent Mme lightning tn every direction at if to search out the indi vidual who tad ottered the obnoxious remark ) Gentlemen, said he, you are all disgracing your selves Mr. Hunt was going on all the while to explain his motion to proceed to ballot,when Mr McNair's eye fell upan him Mr. McS'air ?"I want to know what that man's name is " [Roar* of laughUr ] Mr. Hunt proceeded, and McNair pushing his devious way through the crowd at last reached his side Mr. McNair (indignantly) to Hunt?"What la your n >me, sir ?" Mr Hunt (snappishly) to McNair ?"My name is Hunt, sir." Mr McNair. (awfullv.)?''Did vou allude to me just now, sir?'' .Mr Hnnt. (savagely )?"I did not, iir." Mr. McNair, (forgivingly )?"I am satisfied, sir." Finally, the Chair, which had laughed itself black In the face, succeeded In recovering its voice, and calling the house to order, announced that the point of Clepbene was well taken, and .Mr McNair must dry up. Mr McNair exclaimed, In a voice of deep exas peration. that debate was stifled in this Associa tion. and then dried up The question was then taken on the motion of Mr. Hunt, to lay the motion to postpone on the table; and It was carried. On motion by Mr. J. H. Wise, the Fifth Ward Association was authorized to retire to another room and elect nominees for the proposed enlarged Executive Committee. They did so Pending the action of the Fifth Warders below, a motion was made to go on with tVe balloting, pursuant to Mr. Hunt's proposition 11 _ t n nut a 41 * * ? a 1 ? - i?ir j. i 11 uiun siawu iiidi lasi ioursaay n!gm he had voted for this amendment to the constitu tion, believing it to be a good measure. Since that time he tad been led to believe that the ?fleet of it would be to confute matters in this Associa tion. From what be had seen to-night he was confirmed In the belittf that its eflect would he to make confusion worse confounded. At one who had voted in the affirmative on the amendment, he now moved to reconsider the vote by whir.h that amendment was adopted He had the honor to be one of the candidates for the enlarged com mittee, but thought that tbe committee wa* large enough already, and to increase it would create tbe necessity for a sub-committee to do tbe work H v should, helieving as be now did. vote against every man nomiuated for a place on this commit tee mr uuvaii luou^Di me proposition ouioi omer Mr Huntconcurred in the view* of Mr. Hilton, and in order to fix the matter hoped that as neither Georgetown nor the German Association was re presented in tb? committee, one memlter wnuld lie added from each of th?se association*, and the rest of the amendment to the constitution be re eluded Mr. Deeble (one of the candidates from George town) move;l t? lay the motion of Mr Hilton ou the table. Mr Hilton said be had 110 thought or wish to exclude the two last named associations from the committee, and egreed to the proposition of Mr. Hunt. Afier some confused debate resecting the power of the association to rescind its lormer action at a subsequent meeting without notice h iving been duly given at the former meeting. It was decided that such proceeding was within the rules, and accordingly the motion of .Mr. Heebie, to lay Mr. Hilton's motion 011 the table, was lost Mr. Krivzrinowsk't bore deilned bis views with reference to the rl?h?* of foreign-born citizen* in this association. If they bad no rights here, they h id them with the representatives of tbe nation. The constitution of this association had been amended so much that if th'-y went on a few weeks more in the same way, there would not be anv of the original document left. He thought their object was to benefit the party,and not indi viduals He u*ed to ljeiong to a secret |>olitical party where the members used to pledge them selves and ail they heid d>ar on eartli to the jjtkkI of tneir country. Thev did not think of them selves. Let those who are deserving have some voice in the matter, and let u* rot quarrel with one another. Dr. Watrrs moved tbe previous question on Mr. Hilton's motion, which shut oiT further de bs te. The main question was then put and carried, and the vote on the Abnwxious amendment was reconsidered. Mr. Breed now wanted to know what efl'ect that had upon Georgetown a d the Germans Mr. Hunt said It was no reflection unon them, and that the amendment Iwing now nefore tbe au?.K lanon, couia oe amended so as to Include one member from each of those associations, which be presumed would be Katisfartory to all! TLe question now recurred upon tbe adoption of tbe amendment. Mr Hilton moved to lay that question on the table, and called the previous question; carried. A great number of motions and proposition* of various kinds were made, and some confusion and conflict of opinion was manifested. Meantime tbe Fifth Warders had been Axing up tbelr atUirs below, and now returned, and were very much surprised to learn tbat the action the Association, white they were absent, bad ren dered tbelr labor fruitless Feeling pretty queerly, they could scarcely help manifesting tbat senti meut In their faces, and some tall "snickering" occurred In the ball, as tbelr secretary pro tern. proceeded to the president's table with tbe record of tbe meeting of bis Aasoclatlon duly spread upon paper; and this cachlnatorv feeling was in no way dlminSibMi hi h#? th? v ? secretary. amid cries of "Too late," "too late, old boy." At laat the secretary moved to open tbe amend ment again, ?o thai tbe Georgetown Association and tbe German Aaaoclatlon could eacb add one member, and no more, to the executive committee, and then let tbe rest of the amendment allde. This proposition was finally agreed to. Mr Blgler said the wide awakes were a sepa rate organization from this, and they ought also to be represented on the executive committee. Mr. Kryianowakl reminded Mr. Blgler that the Germans had also a wide-awake association. [Laughter ] Mr. Wood wanted to know bow the wards were represented In this executive committee as now constituted. He was Informed that there was now one member from each ward, one from George town. and one from the German aaaoclatlon, and that the officers of this association, consisting of one president, two vlc? presidents, one secretary, and one treasurer, were tx ojficio members. Something was said about the officers being all residents of tbe Third Wsrd, and that In conse quence. the ward In queatlon was tolerably well re|*CTCui?ii in (Be CommlUM A slight skirmish, the precise nature of which our reporter could not well understand, grew out of thia question, and Mr. Wood announced his i Intention to present an amendment to tbe consti tution at tbe next meeting, cutting off all officers of the association from the executive committee t Mr. Breed offered a resolution provldli%( for a f speaker at all future meetings of tbe assoclstion to i address them for one hour upon republican prin ciples; laid over under the rule.

[Cries of44 O?," jro then!"] The Secretary said tbcre was a resolution which hid b?en handed up to the deak, upon which ac tion was rt-quired. [Cries of Read It "J The Secretary read as follows : Whereas, we have been credibly Informed that certain mechanics and laborers who were em ployed on the works at Fort Sumtr. and who were aupportlng thrroselve* and famillta out of Government moneys, deserUd that liovernriient when called npon In the hour of trial; therefore, Ktfohed, That said mechanics and laborers uv> vmj (UIIIJI Ul U.W llljjrilliuur, l)UI Of nerve the conaemnatlpn of all men devoted to that Union which wai raised by the patriotic bonds of Jefi'erson and Adams, cemented by the crimson tide that flowed on the fields of Hnnker IiiU Camden and Yorktown, and matured by the strong hand of Jackson, the eloquence of Clay, and the oratorical Webster Mr Hilton thought the resolution a floe flourish of words, upon paper He could not undertake to pass ceniure upon those men, who had so good an example set them by the Federal Gov ernment Mr. Breed hoped the resolution would be adopted. It was in the tone and spirit of a resolution be had offered here two weeks ago, and he believed that this Association now dared to vote upon a question they had not dared to vote upon then. The Chair stated that he should certainly like to know more of the facta than was apparent in the resolution before voting upon it. The resolution was tabled. Adjourned. Fast Dat.?Services in tAe Capitol.?Yesterday having been set apart for fasting and prayer, the Chaplain of the House of Representatives deliver ed a discourse suitable to the occasion. At an early hour the floor and galleries of the Hall were occupied by a dense crowd, and by two o'clock (the hour for worship) the doorways and passages were completely obstructed. Rev. Dr. Gurlv openad the exercises with prayer and reading of the first nineteen verses of the ninth chapter of Daniel, upon which the Chaplain based his re marks. Before entering upon his discourse he alluded to an editorial in the Constitution of that morning, reflecting upon him, and said that he was a partizan, neither In Church nor !*tate, but that he regarded the performance of his duty to God and society of vastly more Importance than the Chaplaincy, or any oflice on earth. In his dis course he alluded to our peace, prosperity, and happiness two months ago, and attributed our present difficulties to those antichrists, who for getful of time or eternity, were striving to sppro nropriate to their own use and evil ends, all the benefits and emoluments of our Government. He felt thankful that no blood had yet been shed, and said if Mr Buchanan had no other merit he should be blessed for delaying, If not averting, Iko 1 - * ? .UV |/iuau< VI i avri uai uiuuu. lUCfp^K CT QTCW a moit vivid picture of our former prosperity,and future desolation if the work of treason was con summated, and implored the enemies of our gov ernment to desist -from their traitorous assaults. While all Europe, China, Japan, and even the nvage islands of the sea would grieve over our downfall, and many of tbem were now earnestly striving to restore pea'.e and harmony, we who are most interested are rushing on to inevitable destruction. Our onlv hope of a perpetuity of our arts, our sciences, our religion or our eiistence, as a people, was based upon tbe maintenance of the Federal I'nlon. He denied the assertion that the North hated the South, but that the union meetings held all over the land and the fact that the whole nation was at that time praying for peace and brotbrrly love, was a must positive proof of the affection of one section for another He deprecntedjthe madness of men who would sutiVr tue imaginary interests of four millions to override aud efleet the utter destruction of the happiness of this great and glorious nation He portrayed in eloquent terms the bloodshed, an archy, and destruction we were bringing down upon us, and closed with an invocation for divine guidance and assistance. Rev. Dr Samson concluded the services with prayer and benediction. During the discourse but very few could refrain from tears, and when the reverend speaker re ferred to tbe supplanting of the "stars and stripes by tbe pitiful palmetto," the pent up emotions of the congregation manifested in * of applause, that would have swelled Into a per fect *U>rni h id not a recollection of the time and place checked It. Several times during the dis course tbe feeling was so Intense that Tt seemed almost impossible for the congregation to restrain themselves It was a matter of comment tnat so few members were present, and mativ thought their absence rather significant of Indltt'erenre-on th*lr part In regard to the pres?nt s'.ite of affairs. The day was more universally observed than on any similar occasion ever known h?re. and tbe services at various churches were of remarkable solemnity and liupresaiveneas To thc Pcbmc.?Whereas, the militia it the District is not organized, and threats have be?n made that the President elect shall not be Inau gurated in Washington, and there is reason there fore to apprehend that on the 4th of March next our cltv may* be made the scene of riot, violence, anil bloodshed : And whereas, the undersigned believes that the honor of the nation, and our cltv demands that tbe President elect shall be Inaugurated in the National Metropolis, and that the young men of Washington city are deter mined not to_de?ert their Lomes In the hour of danger, but tcTitiaintaln their ground and defend their families and friends, in the Union and on the side of the Constitution and the laws: There fore, the undersigned earnestly Invites all who concur with hiin in opinion, and who are not now connected with some military company, to jmn wuu mm in lorming a temporary military organization, with the view of prffrvin;* peace and <>rd#t In our midst on the 4th of March next, or whenever the emergency requires it?and for that purpose to unite wlth'the volunteer compa nies of our eitv, which have, in a spirit of gal lantry and patriotism worthy of our Imitation, pledged themselves to the cause of the I'nion, the Constitution, and the laws It is proper tu state that I take tblt step after consultation with friends in whom i have the greatest confidence.
