Batabd TatioI's I.tCTtnt'? Last Pridoy evening Bayard Taylor delivered tbe third lecture of the season before tbe Washington Lecture Association, at the Smithsonian, npon 'The American People. Socially and Politically." Previous to the lecture, several patriotic airs were performed by the band of the Eleventh Maine. Apologizing f>r a brief delay, and the absence of his manuscript in consequence of a rall-oad detention, Mr Tarlor commenced his lecture by relating an anecdote of a servant, who. riding In her mlatress' csrrlave, exclaimed, "Oh! that 1 could stand by the roadside and see myself pass by " It would be much better for us If w* could thus be actors and witnesses of our own deed< At this time, when our Government Is breu<>ht to Its severest test, It Is best for us to consider our own condition dispassionately and thoroughly. We sre a sensitive, thin-skinned people, eireedIngly Jealous of our reputation, and are apt to*be chagrined at tbe slightest disparaging criticism In the Infancy of our Government, the social system of the American people was almost exsctly similar to that of England, but since that time there has been a great transformation, and we are now entirely different In. that respect from tbe mother country. We have tbe peculitwlty of changing tbe character of all who ceme to our * shores, la their babita, language, religion, and even their physiognomy, the Influx of foreigners working no change upon us, So great la our own magnetic Influence. But notwithstanding all this our social relations are extrenely limited. In Europe, where there are different and distinct ? grades of society, there Is more social freedom than with us. In some portions of this eountrv a m*n's standing In society is^ measured by his wealth, In others by bis religion or political sentiments, In some eltie* by the street he lives in, while there sre many place* In which education and refinement Wo.)id of Itself tell against tbe possessor We are too tender upen tbe subject ef Individual wealth, aud frequently debar ourselves from much pleasure and enjoyment in our attempts to appear wealthier than we really are An Englishman will frankly state tbe amount of bis Income, sud give bis pecuniary inability as a reason for not indulging In a luxury; tbe German will not besltntetorldeln atblrd clastfcar; andtbe freeebman will dine on a biscuit and dance to tbe operatic air as be shakes his empty pockets; while tne American with gnawing hunger will tell yon be has ju?t di ned Bnt tbe America' ? are not penurious; snd If we sre s money-msking people we are almo a money-spending and a money-giving people, whose charity and benevolence is knowu throughout tbe world We are not Independent enongb In our thought". t*i: all w our newspapers and leaders to do our thinking. ^s a people we are extremely exrilaltleaud notorloualy fickle. We are exceedingly tender with retjard to tbe opinions of foreigner?; and while professing not to rare what others think, the first question we a?k the stranger Is. " What do you think of onr country We thus psy too mucb attention to the opinion of other nations, and snow too much self-rsons-lonsnes*. The sp'rlt of democracy here rules too much tne Federal authority. In our early dava, as a people, our President could bold t??ck and rule tbe people; but now, if any attempt Is made to prevent treason and guard against danger. 11 is loofced upon WlUi jealoiwy *+ * danifrrmis assumption of power.
