Editor / Star; I am a member of the Washington Lecture Association. I hare paid my fee of membership, attended the lec'urea, (I do not ait on the platform.) applauded when pleased and kept alienee when displeased I joined the Association for the purpose of aiding in affording to the citizens of waabington a svrles of lectures rarled In style and subject^ political, scientific, iit?r?r? I *m ant!-alarerv In feellnir. and desired to see the principle established that even that?to some?odious topic could be discussed In the Capital of the nation But I did not expect that the Association would be perverted to the promulgation of that doctrine to tbe almost entire exclusion of fill other subjects. The temrerajice question Is a good, moral, and Important one But should we therefore In a literery association secure lecturers who run every topic Into that channel* We are Informed that the course proper has been completed In fact, we have given one lecture over. In which the tlck??-holders were highly edtllsd and the lecturer extensively advtrtistd hi* profession. We hav also a second -ecture announced from Rev Geo B Cheever. I have listened In vain for a call for a meeting of the full a?soc!atlon to listen to a report from the executive committee and devise plans for the future As 1 have do other way to reach the officers of the association, I would crave, through your columns, the privilege of asking them some question*. By what authority do they prolong or continue the ?ourse of lectures* Bv what warrant do they engage for a second lecture Mr. Cheever " or any other man," and pay for the name out of ths funds of the association without first consulting the association? For one I protest against this assumption of power on their part, and especially against the ro-engagement of a man who vaun'Inglv proclilmed that " he was ashsmed of the name of American," and who vlllified his country when abroad, and whose every breath at home Is laden with abuse of the Government, the Administration and our commanding generals; who has no words of encouragement in the hour of peril but interminable harangues of blt>r ina n A Parian r?

Its repugnance to the sentiments of most of thoae who officially assemble htre is of Itself deemed adequate ground for Its discontinuance.
