Mr. I*ord lectured at the ?mitbaonian last night on Bacon aad Phllcaophy The lecturer denounced aa unjoat the worda of Pope, in vrblch Bacon had been handed down aa the "VTlaest, brightest. mtatHtt of mankind," together with the description a of Lord* Macaulay -nd Cninpbetl, which repteaent him as being the -Judus lemriot of the levente-nth century. Bacon bi eminent ra a lawyer, statesman, and phlloao ' ^ hrr, and until hia Ignoble fall there was nothing lo 'm peach hia honor or integrity. We received the liveliest impression of hia character when be Wsbut a youth at the Court of Elizabeth. He waa "noted, as a courtier, for hia wit, politeness, and love of truth, and, in after years, when he occupied high posltlona in the government, whenever his nrin'.^n waa asked concerning anv atat* nnllrv h? Would Invariably advocate the aide of truth, even though it was in direct oppoaitloa to the wishes of the Queen At the age of ten he forsook the gayety of the pa tare to atudy tbe cause* of a celebrated echo In tbe vicinity. At thirteen he wni sent to Cam bridge, and at sixteen was so disgusted with its pedantry and learned dullness, that he left it and took up alone tbe task of mastering the mysterle* of knowledge At nineteen he was found smong tbe philosophers snd learned men of the day, a vo-ithful competitor for the prise of dis'lnction. lie studied law at Lincoln's Inn. and mastered *verv lejjal technicality, fobjecta which he always hated.) and at the same time was deeply versed In proaeand poetry. He was made Queen's Coun sellor at an earlv aije, and when forty-seven was *lev?*d Chancellor, from which he soon became I-nrd High Chancellor. His corruption as judge was no greater than that of his cotemnoraries. but hi* adv?rs?rv fnk? through envy and vtndictlveness, blasted Li* rep utation Either Bacon or Buckingham had to fall, and Kim; James was mean euo'igh to sacri flre th? Chancellor to save his favorite. His bribery was no greater than that of his associates, ?i d it was no wonder that he fell In with the customs of the a?e, practices no worse then those rt city fathers .Vi.o give out contracts to scoundrel friends. I'he lertnrer defended Baron from the assaults that had been made upon his integrity and private character, and considertd the attacks of Lis co temporaries and historian as being the result of malice and an inability to appreciate the man.

Tr* !*AtatiATio* Ball Room ?The contract for the erection of the building In which to hold the onion Inauguration ball has been awarded to Mt~mrt Angus A. Lewis. The building is to be built In rear of the City Hall, and to run parallel with that building. The length of the dancing saloon is to be 250 feet, and the width 80 feet Ad joining this, and opening Immediately Into it, Is to be the supper room, which Is of the name lenzth. The bight of the danrinfe saloon will be *J2 f-et, and the main entrance thereto through the Yestibule of the City Hall Opposite the entrance door Is the orchestra. It baa not yet bern de termined in what manner the interior of tbe hall room shall be furnished, the question of drapery and hangings not yet being settled. The Common Council chamber and the rourt room of the City nan are to be the ladles'and gentlemen'sdressing rooms, the entrance to them from the ball room being by a stairway and through the Urge rear windows. The time being snort it which to complete the work, It will be commenced on next Motidav morning, and will furnish a short job for some 75 to 100 sarpenters. Messrs. Angus A Lewis have determined, if practicable, to employ an equal number of hands from each of the seven wards of the city In the execution of the work, so as to average the employment Airly. R eohoa.hzati<>h or Tim Constitutional Ocaid*?This company, composed principally of residents of the Third Ward, assembled oh Friday evening for the purpose of reorganising. Mr Dell wu elected 1st Lieut; Mr. Cavanaugn, 24 Lieut ; Mr. West Scott, 3d Lieut. These gentlemen thanked tbe company for the honor conferred. In neat and appropriate addresses, which were loudly applauded. The reason for the reorganization of the com piny is, that a lsrge number of persons beinc desirous of tnininir company, toe officer! elected on a previous occa c sion resigned, 10 a* to afford an opportunity to the new members to vote for officer*. A rommu nlration was receivrd from Captain Edward C. Carrinjjton, Inviting the company to join the Union Regiment; which was declined. This company now numbers seventy odd member*, and continue to receive accessions nightly. At a late hour the meeting adjourned, with three cheers for the nrwly-elected officers, three cheers for the Constitution and the Union, and three for Gen. Scott. A $irncrLTY oocurred last night in the hall of the National Hotel, between the Hon. Mr. Kel logJ|, of Illinois, and Mr?jMedill, editorial cor respondent of the Chicago Tribune, in which the latter received t.tine pretty severe blows about the head and face before the bv-standers could Inter pose successfully. The affair, it appears, grew out of what Mr. K considered personal remarks about him. in the Washington correspondence of the paper above mentioned, in regard to his late course in the House of Representatives with ref erence to the national troubles Last night the >?uinn?iuc .isuoDii. ana Mr. iveilogg requested Medill to itep aside with him, as be alleges, to remonstrate with him about the matter, and try to brine about an understanding. Medill refused to enter Into any explanations, and evinced 110 dispo sition to accord the interview sought by K., who tLereupon administered the blows above noted; and thus tfce matter ended. Rocqh Btrglakh ?Last night, the offices of Messrs Coyle A Uro. and McLenn, lumber mer chants, Canal street, near Thirteenth, were broken into and the desks ransacked, papers scattered over the Door and papers destroyed. AttheM?*srs Coyle's the entry was made by bursting ? panel from the door. A lot of pap?rs were piled upon the desk and saturated with oil, and set Are to, probably for light. A coat belonging to Mr A Coyle, and anothT belonging to the foreman. w?-re stolen The scamps bespattered the wall with Ink. and battered the iron safes to get In, showing th*t their object was money. Not suc ceeding, they departed after scrawling their ral lying cry?l,Oh, y?,u Night Owls!''?in large characters upon the wall. This is the third re ceut attempt upon this office. At Mr. McLean's, they entered by forcing the lock, scattered and destroyed his papers, but did uo other damage.
