L*ctw** bt Ralph Waldo Emiksox?Mr. Emerson had a large audience laat night on the occasion of bit lecture before the Association, and on bis mounting the platform there was a general movement to get-a look at the Seer of Concord. Personally be is very much a Yankee seer?long-limbed, long-featured, lank-bairr-d, slab sided, keen-eyed, turn-down collared; and , is by no manner of means the mind's ideal of the distinguished thinker and essayist Mr Emerion commenced by remarking upon tbe d'ffl?ulfy of precisely defining civilization, and proceeded to treat upon the modes by which nations make progress Commerce is a great civiilzer Road-building Is a great promoter of civilization. Another step, Is the change In a community from war and pasturage to agriculture. Tbe post sfllc?; a cheap press; division of labor; multiplication of the arts of peace; tbe right position of woman in society, were all texts of civilization. Tbe lecturer had thought that it vu a suflcient definition of civilization to term It tbe Influence of good women. Climate haa something to do with civilization. Where the now fall* there civil freedom prevail*. In hot climates men are selfish, grasping, cruel There had been exceptional cases of noble rarea of men in equatorial regions, as in Egypt and Arabia. Deep morality la an esaential condition of high clvi"ty Man brings into hi* service the various element*, as In tbe use of the water fall, tbe force of gravitation, electricity, Ac ; and tbev wi!l always do his service faithfully so long a* they are employed t* Ik' direction tkey trartl A* oar handa tbns relv on tbe elements, cur poli'lca *bould rely npon principles, and we shall have elements at hand to do tur work, if used In the direction thev too are moving. We can also thus harness evil elements to work for good. We can tax the pleasant vtcea What a gain would It be were whisky end rum taxed up to the point of prohibition! Tohacco and opium have very W?*d backs, and will support armies, If properly taxed. Tbe test of civilization In a country la not ita census or its yield of cropa, but tbe hind of men It turns out Personal liberty, aneedy justice, secure tenor of landa, Ac., were vlt2l elements of civilization The lecturer proceeded with an animated tribute to tbe nobilltv of labor, and charged against tbe lnatltutloa of slavery that it makea labor a disgrace We bad long endeavored to bold two states of civilization together, the feudal one of the slave Sta'es, and tbe progressive one of the free State*. Why not extend the higher state of civilization over the whole? Ia not civilization heroic, active, having a will? We live in a new und exceptional age America wh a word that In bis even meant opportunity. The Government had been reproached for unwillingness to strike blows and adopt measures which, in its judgment, was calculated to make peace Impossible; but he had no fear of the result. As, when two schoolboys set in punishment to beat each other, they commence with light sportive blown, but as their anger mounts, end in giving each otner a sound trouncing; so the blows in this case would harden as the contest went on. There were compensations growing out of the calamities of the times. We shall abate somewhat of our national vanity. The American eagle must hereafter be less of a peacock. Everybody studies economy now. The war s-?arches character, and has develoDed an as tonisblne nationality. It had brought out not merely the effeminate sentimentalist, but the rough democrat, who hatea abolition but secesaicn more. There la a healthier tone physically throughout the country In tbeae war times; the bllla of mortality are smaller; there are less fevers, consumptions, and dyspepsias where there la so much electricity. Nature sympathizes, boys are barn! Bat the war goes on groping for some broader, more catholic frinciplea. At last we shall hare to come to emanrlpation, with compensation to ioyal citizens, as the only platf'rm. Emancipation is the demand of civilization. The moment emancipation la declared, the army of the enemy la destroyed, as it must scatter and hasten home to look after the alavea The war, be trusted, is to heal a deeper wound than It makea. It 1* to rid us of that acepticlsm that doea not believe In prlnclplea, but in material success Morality la the real object of all gorernmeot. end we want a country in wmcu vac practice 01 rascality mail not pay. Ia conclusion. he expressed the conviction that victory will foil where It ought to fell. Mr. Rmerson la too large-minded and philosophically tolerant to elicit the hearty applause of the admlrera of Cheever and aome others of the course, but his lecture was listened to with thorough attention, and a general expression of regret wss msnifested that he seemed to fael it Incumbent upon him to keep within the hour.

The fare on those roeds is not to exceed five cents a passenger, and the roads are to be subject to the municipal regulation of the cities of Washington and Georgetown, and be liable to taxation as other real estate and personal property are. Ten per centum of the gross receipts for fares la to be paid over to the cities of Georgetown and Washington, In proportion to the relative population cf the two cities, to be applied exclual vely to the support of free public schools; and, while that per centum ahall be duly paid, the realty of the road la to be exempt from any other taxation.

Mr. Grimes made an explanation yesterday, stating that the bl.l did not create a close corporation. It authorised nine commissioners to open books, and when th? company was formed tbe duties of those commissioners would cease. He bad sought to obtain the names of gentlemen who bad the confidence of the community and who were well known here. Among other names that were Inserted was that of Mr. Peter H. Watson, at present the Third Assistant Secretary of War. All tbe names were Inserted on his own resnonsl billty, without conference with any body. Knowing Mr. \Va toon's reputation be saw fit to Include that gentleman's name among the commissioners, but Mr Watson protest? against bis name being retained, for tbe reason that he has never been a corporator In any company, and has never b?en interested in any job or speculation of any kind, and he deslret that his name should be strlck n oat. Criminal Court.?Yesterday, in the case of Edward Magee, tried for the larceny of <90 from Wm. Taussig. Mr. Utermehle, counsel for def-nw, ay reed u> submit tbe case without argument, which was agreed to by the District Attorney; ana the jury brought in a verdict of acquittal. Patrick McCarthy, indicted for an assault and battery, with intent to kill, on Henry Douglas, was aconltted John Doe was tried and found guilty of assault and battery on Frederick Holzier. [Thus It will be seen that John Doe, who figures in the law books and in ejectment suits in the Circuit Court In connection with Richard Roe, Is no longer a mvth, but has at last been found and convicted ] The Court proceeded to sentence Albert Contner, who was convicted a few days since of man. slaughter, having killed John Bremllneln a brawl In Prather'salley. The prisoner is a very young man, with a frank, open, and rather handsome countenance, and with nothing in his appearance to denote the hardened criminal. The Court, in passing sentence, spoke in a feeling and Impressive manner to the prisoner, and referred to the f?ct disclosed by the testimony of two highly re* pec table gentlemen that he (the a % ? -? ? - " prisoner j La a a gooaitna wormy ratter, and ai at cave bad excellent moral training, all of which be (the prisoner) bad forgotten or thrown aside when be came to tblscity. The evidence elicited tbe fact that be bad descended to the lowest depths of degradation, and was almost out of tbe pale of humanity and civtliz ition, that he and another young man were living with two women of the vilest character in a house which had no other furniture than a table, a stove and a few chairs, without beds and with no glass in tbe windows; and that all slept together In a room ten feet square, thus assimilating themselves to tbe bessts or tbe Held; that la this place, and In a diipute about the person of one of these wome.i, who was drunk at tue time, and should In tbls state have excited tbe disgust of any man with a sense of decency and propriety left, the prisoner shst a fellow creature, causing his death. In view of tbe fact that the prisoner was in bis own house, and other facts disclosed In evidence, the Court thought tbe verdict of manslaughter a very proper ont, ana me prisoner was sentenced to imprisonment In the penitentiary for eight year*, commencing from and after the Oth day of February. The Court stated that this time?until the Oth instant?waa granted to allow the prisoner to see bis parents Henry Burke, colored, was then arraigned, charged with an assault and battery with Intent to kill on Alfred Thomas, also colored, having cut him very badly with a razor, which case was la progress when the court adjourned.
