F. R.

Oen'l E. O Carrlngton waa present and ad dreased the meeting upon the resolutions propoaed by htm at tbe meeting in the Third Ward on Monday night He aald It bad been atated by misrbevlous and traltoroua people that the people of tbe South bate the people of the North, and the people of the North hate tbe South. The ac cuaatloy were false io bla belief. Tbe great ma as of the people of both sectlona were frienda and wanted to be frlenda. but are misled by unscrupu loua and bad men. The great heart or the Amer ican nation beats to tbe mualc of tbe Union, and he irmly believed that a great Union like oura could not be diasolved. It ia tbe duty of our people to cberiah peace and peaceful relatlona, but he apoke upon tbe authority of Waahlngton when he aaid in time of peace prepare for war War ia alaeady begun, to far as one little rebellous Stfltp If TKa 1?? ? .. v~u? ? a u? UU|| ui uur i iiiuii una been trampled in the dust by a horde of traitors, and threats have been made of an armed Invaalon of our beloved city to prevent the Inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. Snail we, aa citizens of the Federal Capital, suffer our homes to be desecrated by th'ese ruHians; or shall we rather prepare our selves to resist Invasion, come from what quarter it may? If we must have war, let us be prepared to meet it. The people of the South say that the people of the North are not thalr friends. It Is not so; the great mass of the people all over this land love one another Why should they be otherwise than friends* The history of the country proves the people of the North and of the South to be equally brave, generous and patriotic; and no man but a coward or a fool would charge upon either section the want of courage True courage is Inherent In the whole American heart; and the same prin ciples which characterise the people of the South are in the people of the North. Virginia is m??u, <smu jimiy >u, ui oer mutinous ions; so may Massachusetts be. Virginia may boast of her hero statesman?the Illustrious Washington? hut who wu 11 but a son of Massachusetts that discovered In Washington these high attainments which ?o eminently qualified him for the poaltlon he held aa commander-in-chief of the army of the Revolution ? Who was It but a son of Mas sachusetts that, having discovered those eminent qualities of the Father of bla Country, urged his appointment as commander-in-chief of the Amer ican Army? Show me a great man in the South and I'll show you another in the North The peo ple of this country are all one in reference to the great qualities which characterize a great nation. It has been threatened that a mob of lawless men are to come here and attempt to resist the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. Shall we. as citizens In wb<>se honor is confided the saf?ty of the nation's Chief Magistrate, permit such a thrsat to pass unregarded; or shall we stand up like men to defend our homes from the da?t?rHiir It ia said, tauntingly, of our northern brethren, that tbey are coward*. No man but a coward, a traitor and a fool, will utter so foul a slander on a brave and generous people. We must prepare ourselves to resist any mob, no matter from whence they cam?. This is the purpose of organization Don't wait to be enrolled In the militia 1 abhor and denounce this Infernal doctrine of secession, which threatens to sacrifice our beloved country. Better sacrifice whole hecatombs of rebels, wLo defy and set .it naught theauthority of the Federal Uoveriimt-nt, than sacrifice on? principle involv ing the perpetuity of our beloved Union. Gen.

Iline K.icb officer on being elected received three hearty cbeert from the crowd, and wat called upon for a speech. The speeches were more re markable for point than flourish. Mr. Kelly said. In response to the call, that he was much obliged for the honor conferred upon hiiu; that he was not a man for tpeechet, but that when the hour of danger arrived he would not be found wanting Mr Herbert said?''Soldiers! I never talk; but if you want me, I'm thar." [Cheers and laugh ter ] Dr Jewell said he was astonished at tbe honor which had been conferred upon bim. lie ?ni? tbere t? act at a private If we have got to fight, (which he sincereiv hoped we ihould not have to do.) he should be found fighting for tbe Union.

The election of Sergeant* was postponed until tbe next meeting of the company. The meeting tben adjourned, to meet at Stott'a Hall ou Friday night next Lkctcrk 05 Roam a5T> Dridoes ?The third lecture of Prof Fairman Kogers, of the Univer sity of Pennsylvania, was delivered at the Smith sonian Institution on Monday night. Having treated in the preceding lectures upon roads as a means of communication, tbe lecturer now took up the subject of bridges, works which form an important part of ail roads, and especial lv of thf la ?..?4.1 " ' 1 _ , m .u- ? a uiv/uiimiiiivuo " v ?? i ?i i t -> m* are structures Xn span springs or chasms AM rich ftructure* may be divided Into two general classes ?beams and arches. The stability of struc tures depend* upon the resisting power of the materials composing them The general laws governing the stability of structure! may be de duced from a dts usslon of observations and ex periments on various forms of structure, the nu merical data from careful experiments. When a stick or beam ts fastened at one end, as Into a wall, and a weight is applied to the other end, It will first bend, and finally. If suffi cient weight be applied, will break. If the load Is slight, it will regain its original form when the lo d is removed; if it is very heavy the beam will take a permanent set, which injnres its strength, even though it will not be broken. Galileo, who early speculated upon the matter, thought that in this case the beam became ex tended by the weight, but J*mes Hemoiil. who Investigated it more thoroughly, showed that the upper fibres were extended and the lower ones compressed, and at a line near the centre which he called the neutral axis, they were neither com pressed nor extended The lecturer then showed by diagrams that with any weight the deflectfon or binding of a hoi m in<t?*?s?<l * - " *' ** * " .... iu piu|n>ruon to IDC CUOt Of ITS 1 length, and diminished In proportion to the 1 wtJth and to the cub* of the depth; so that if we wish to make a beam stifl we must increase the I depth in preference to the width This is the < reason why the floor joists of hoiis^saari> always set on the edge, and not on the flat'side The strength of a beam follows the same general laws, i but not exactly In the same proportions A beam i fastened at one end and loadea at the other need 1 not be so deep at the frse end as at the other, but i may be tapered off without loss of strength or i stlffaeaa A beam supported at both enas and < loaded In th? mlitHI. m?? ?1 ' * ? -* ?~ w pivtnrny uuntiurrra as if it were fattened in the middle and loaded at the ends, and tben Its form will be that of two single beam* joined end to end, the middle por tion being the deepest With a given weight of material the beam Is stronger as the material is placed further from the neutral axis or towards the top and bottom of the beam, since tben each particle acts with the greatest effect. The strongest form of section Is therefore this 3 , where the material is disposed in two flanges, connected by a thin web In a hollow cylinder, such as a straw, which Is subjected to strains from all sides, all the material Is at the edge and there is none whatever at the neutral axis. In a beam supported at theends the upper flange Is compressed and the lower extended, and the size of each will depend upon the reslstaqfe of the material to compression or extension. Mr Hodgklnson's experiments have shown that in a PMt frnn K**nr* IK* !?*?? 1 * 1 * ?, mv ?wwci uau^r auuia nave SIX tlmt-a the section of the upper one: and recent ex periment! give for wrought iron Deams an upper rather larger than the lower one. A ver tical or shearing strain near the point* of aupport waa first pointed out by Dr Young, and tta im portance la now generally recognized, f Drawings of various forms of beams were ahown Illustrating the different points above noticed ] Wrought Iron girders are frequently for convenience made of several parts riveted together, but they act as If made In one solid niece, in very large bsims, such as the side of a large bridge, the web or ver tical ptate will be very large, and that portion of it near the neutral axis will do but little work; therefore it will be better to replace it by an open work structure if poaaible. thus saving ma terial Thia can be dene by wnat la technically termed framing the web?that is, making it of plects so fitted together that thev shall perforin tbr same office aa the solid web The triangle la the only straight-aided fivure the form of cannot be altered without changing tbe length of the tides If we arrange a right ancle triangle, fur instance, with one aide fastened firmly to a wall, one aide horizontal and the third aide run ning downward from the end of the horizontal aide to the bottom of the vertical one, tbe end of the horizontal aide cannot (ink down under tbe action of a weight unleaa tbe inclined side be come! horter, wblcb It cannot do If the material i* ?ufflcientty restating.

The Justice advised her to get in officer of the Seventh Ward, where she live*, to go with her and demand the bed It Is an act that does not come under the bead of larceny le gally, but the poor woinan'sstatement excited the sympathy and co-operation of those in the office.
