Mr. Chapln offered a resolution upon the same subject. I he joint resolution of the Aldermen was taken up. Mr Easbv thought the resolution would have the effect to defeat the bill entirely, if It had any.

He had no dcubt that a man who had been convicted in the crim inal court would not scruple to insert his own and other name* ia such a connection, which be be lieved to be the fact now. Mesars Emerson and Wilson were in favor of a specification of the objectionable features. Air.

Licit*! ?Last Bight, Rev. Mr. Lord delivered the first of hiscoune of lectures on the Representa tives of Modem Civilization The subjectof last evening was Michael Angelo and Art. Angelo waa born In 1474, of illuatrloua parents, who opposed all his wishes and aspirations ron nceted with his art, considering nothing worthy of stientlon exc-pt the art of war, medir lue, the ology, or some of the professions He was a rag ged. stern m&n. nurtured in the school of sorrow and adversity, and isolated because Superior to all around him. ' He was a firm believer in the ells teacr or a personal Dtitv, and it Was bta rtflicbt to work out the majrstic'lloamentsof the prophets and boljr men of God. In hiin waacombined a perfect knowledge of tbe three highest arta: pai nt ing, sculpture and architecture, each of which waa developed to the fullest extent. He wns not only a creator but a reproducer, and the Gothic, the Byrantine, the Roman, and Grecian styles of architecture were all worked out In their harnio nlous perfections. H Is statues were noted for their majesty and grandeur, and this waa carried to such a degree that at the age of eighty, when musing upon hia worka, particularly the oattle of Hercules with the Centaurs, executed when he was but eighteen years old, oe regretted that be bad not (given hla attention whollyto sculpture Art only flourished when commercial enterprise was prosperous. The men who accumulated treasure in commerce and trade sought to embel lish their palaces and gardens, and aculpture made progress as its need was felt and taste be came refined. Ills works were not suggestive of demoralization or paganism, but were exalting snd instructive. His gorgeous frescoing, bis ma jestic statues, and his unrivaled architecture have challenged the admiration of the whole world; and though his paintings, his statues, and his columns may crumble away, the influence for Sood which he exerted upon mankind, and the leas he represented in the sublime rreatlona of his lofty Intellect, will continue to exist as long as (ktf nillaM aiinrwvsl ^ sv ri4<?>? iH?>?u|.pvii true U1IITCISO VII UUU.
