Hobacb Gbbblbt at th* Smithsonian?Laat ntght Horace Greeley delivered tbe fifth lecture ef tbe courae before the Washington Lecture Aaeoclatlon, at the Smltbaonian. Tbe hall waa denselv crowded. At 8 o'clock, with Mr. Greeley, there appeared upon tbe platform Preeldeat Lincoln. Secretary Chaae, Speaker Grow, Senatore King, Wllaon. and Pomeroy; Messrs Stevena, Aldrlch, Lovejoy, Hutchlns, and Edwards, of the Houae of Representative?; Col. d'Utassy, of tbe Garibaldi Guarda, and other personages of more or leee note. In commencing, the lecturer pleasautly remarked that he waa a peculiar Institution, not yet naturalized here, but hoped the time waa not far dlstsnt when be would be able to bold dlacuaaion farther South A nation, he aaid. la not an * arbitrary construction It lanot made, but grows Thev are aometlmea formed by offiete or aboota from emplree, but oftenerare the reault of growth and aggregation After noticing the origin, progress and probable destiny of European natlona, tbe apeaker aeked are we Americana one people? A single nation divided for a time * Or two hostile rivals which no statesmanship can harmonize. He held that we are unmistakaoly a single nation by the common elements of race, language, religion, history, geography, topography and government. Our government la not simply a bond or alliance from which any one of the parties may at pleasure withdraw, but a constitution from whose authority none can retire without the conaent of all. The Conatitutlon makes ua one people, and although every loyal man feels Individual pride In tbe wellfare and Independence of hie own State, ret be Is proudest to cherish tbe name that designates him an American. Paealng from the aoutbern doctrine of "State's rlghta" and their contempt for the " Yankees," and dwelling for a time upon the baneful influences of slavery, whleh he esteemed to be the most horrible legacy of evil tbe paet baa bequeathed to tbe present age, tbe apeaker turned to the national struggle. The whole difficulty bad rtisen from the question of alavery extension. Slave lawa make slave Territories, slave Territories make , slave States, and a tern resistance la required to prevent universal bondage. Yet this resiatanee need never have afforded cause for a separation. The North was willing and anzloua to join In an equitable and constitutional adjustment, but tbe South drew tbe sword to resist a peaceable arrangement Tbe election of 1900 was not the cause, but tbe opportunity of secession and the Union Is now to be restored either upon the basis of tbe new Ideas of tbe South or upon tbe old ones of our fathers. The greatest evils that can befall us is compromises. We would sink low in the scale of nations by a separation; bat he was for liberty with tbe Union aa our fathers made it, but for liberty with or without the Union. Com prom'se Is impossible One or the other would be compelled to sacrifice its principles, and It would establish a most dangerous precedent, giving a bounty for rebellion, and inspiring every minority to revolt. We must emerge from thia struggle easentially free; and though there may be slavery, yet tbe Union must never again pander to the sggrandlzement of slavery. The weakness of the nation In the preeent struggle is a fa'.lure to look tbe enemy In tbe eye, and that enemy ie slavery. It had caused the rebellion, and should meet a traitor's doom. Tbe nation of 1874, he predicted, would be a nation of freemen, and though devastated and scarred by war, ana may be sunk to tbe level of Sweden and Brazil among the Powers of the earth, we shall never a**ia become tbe apologists of human bondage. The moral results of the war woald prove ausptclous and enduring, and the succeeding age win be virtuous and true. We have already emerged from the self-coocelt of yesterday, which made an American abroad the synonym of swaggering bluster. We shall never agaia stand aa proudly, be struck so bard, or fall so low. Concluding with an eloquent picture of tbe peaceful prosperity and national advancement to succeed this war, the speaker received the eonCtulatloas of his friends upon tbe stage amid hearty applause of tbe audience, which lingered some tloia, appareatly dealrous of bearing a word from Mm of the distinguished statesmen preeent. Chiminal Covnr.?Yesterday, Patrick Cusick, soldier, Indicted for resisting officer Buell, was found guilty and sentenced to Imprisonment in the Jail for a period of six months, and to pay a fine of SI John Mahoney and John Nevens, indicted for committing an nseaultand battery with Intent to kill officer Shakespeare, were found guilty of sn assault sad battery only.

An offutr ?ko?ts a f>rwait ?There wu great excitement on Pa avenue yesterday afternoon, which resulted from the (hooting of a soldier by an officer. The facta In the esse seem to be, that John C. Halter, a bugler la company E,4th U S Cavalry, (which company ) now performing provost-guard duty on Pa avenue.) waa coming up that thoroughfare ftom the direction of the Cipltol, about 3 o'clofck ih the afternoon. He had nearly reached the corner of Sixth street, when the young and spirited horse on which he waa riding, shied at some buffalo robes hanging In front of Hunt k. Goodwin's store, which Is a few doors east of the National Hotel Halter, although a young man, Is an old soldier, having aerved In the cavalry nine years. He entered the service at the age of thirteen, and la no* therefore twenty-two years old. with his expedience he Is of course sn excellent horseman. and when his steed exhibited signs of fear, he at one* determined to familiarize the animal with the object of ita alarm He quietly proceeded to urge his horse towards the robes, ana his skilful management of the animal soon attracted a large number of spectators. In msneuvering his horse, he brought It In contact with another which was standing in front of the store A man at this moment approached him, and ordered him to ride on and go about his business. Halter turned bla head and answered in a pleaaant manner that he was one of the Provost Guard, and did not know the person speaking (who waa not in uniform) or what right he he had to order him (Halter) away. After a few mors worda had paased Halter turned awav, and was riding towards Seventh street, walking his horse. He had nearly reached the corner of Sixth street when the person who had Interfered with him called to him twice to stop, which he did not do, but proceeded along very leisurely up the Avenue. The officer, as he waa now presumed to be, ordered the soldier a third time to atop, and no attention being paid to tbe command, he drew a revolver and flred, tbe ball entering Halter's back, a little to tbe left of the aplne, and just above the waist. The wounded man convufalvely placed bla hand upon the spot where tbe ball entered, exclaiming, "I'm shot"' He waa helped off his horse by some of the bystandera, and conveyed Into Stott's drug store, and from thence In a back to the office of Dr. Dove, on Four-and-a-half street, who, at tbe time, was absent. From Dr. Dove'a office, he was conveyed to the Government hospital on Fifth street, where his wound waa attended to by Dr. White. Upon probing the wound It was found that tbe ball could not be reached, It having pursued an upward course after entering the body. Tbe officer who flred the shot was Captain (lately promoted from a lieutenancy) Thomas Turner, of the 4th infantry. He was arrested by Patrolmrn Wilson and Morgan.who were pasting at the time of the shooting They at once took him before tbe Superintendent of police. Patrolman Leach soon after went to the superintendent's office with an order from Captain Steele officer of the Provost Guard at the Central Guardhouse, for the arrest of Capt. Turner, but found he had been | released. Patrolman Leach then returned tbe order to Captain Steele, so that It might >v> given to some one who could identify Captain Turner. That officer was rearrested by the military laat night, and Is said to be under gusrd at bis quarters Tip whole occurrence was witnessed by a great number of our citizens, so that it will not be difficult to get at the facts of the case Halter s condition is very critical this morning, and it la feared tbat tbe wound will prove to be a fatal one. The officers of his regiment say tbat he was one of the best men In the corps?sober, bonret, Intelligent, and reliable Tbat in nine | vears' service he was never charged with any offer.se, an?l was never placed under gmrd They also state that be la one of tbe best horaemen in the country It was this accomplishment to which be probably owes his wound, as Captain Turner alleges that he ordered Halter away In consequence of the crowd he had collect* d It is stated tbat Captain Turner represented himself to be an officer of the provost guard to Halier, when he ordered him off, and that he (Turner) had on at the time a military overcoat without a cape, and a military cap. Capt Thomas Turner was not a graduate of the west Point Military Academy, but was appointed a Lieutenant of the 4th infantry (regular army) from civil life, having served well aa an officer of the three monthe volunteers. He is a son of Capt Robert Turner, U S. N. P S?Since writing tbe above the following affidavit has been made In this caae before Justice Donn: Mr. Robert M Baam. of Baltimore, appeared before Justice Donn and made oath that on tbe 3d Instant he was on Pennsylvania avenue near the corner of Sixth street, at or about 2 o'clock, ft. m , when a man named John C. Halter, dressed n soldier's apparel, was riding a spirited horse, and waa coaxing him up to a buffalo robe, or which he appeared shy, which attracted a number of people's sttention, when an ofllcer, said to be Captain Turner, of ths regular service, csme up and spoke to the soldier, when tbe soldier wheeled and walked his horse off some fifteen yards, when the officer halloed to him to stop; the young man turned bis hesd snd was Instantly shot through tbe bsck by the officer. He did not fall, but was removed from his horse by tbe bystanders: that front all witness saw of the transaction, snd he saw the whole of It, he thinks the shot was unprovoked on the part of the soldier. Lost his Balascb ?Yesterday, sn old gentleman, from the vicinity of Laurel Factory, Md., while squatted, for some purpose, upon the stone wall bordering the canal, near the market house, lost his equilibrium and tumbled backwar ds Into the water. Fortunately, the water was not deep, and the old msn floundered about In the mud for a time In a style that would have done credit to a^ymnaat. until rescued by those whom his shouts had called to tbe spot. When found he was quite exhausted, and was alternately shouting and praying in fervid style, but when taken Into tbe guard house and restorea to warmth and comfort, the pious sentiments so freely expressed in the canal, melted away under the genial Influence of the fire and " bitters" (administered to him,) and as be proceeded to button his water-logged netherments, he fell Into s train of promiscuous "cussIn." exceedingly creditable to hta Prince George's county education and experience?a oounty equally famous, as everybody knows, for hard swearlag and hard whisky.
