Mr. Malloy objected to the amendment, and argued at length to ahow that the plan proposed by Mr. 8. would operate disadvantageous]v and unfavorably, and would delay the voting Mr Shepherd explained that he wltbed the Kno pie established that no one who Is unwilg to take the oath of allegiance to the constitution and government is lit to enjoy the privileges It guaranties, either of voting or filling the ofilces Fealty to our government ahould be one of the greatest qualifications In the exercise of tnese funetlona.

YovNa Max's Christian Association?The regular monthly and annual meeting of this asso< elation was held at the room* last evening, and wu opened witb prayer by Rev. Dr. Stevenson, aecretary of tbe American Tract Society. Tbe president, in order, presented and read an Interesting report for the month now cloeed. It states that tbe regular, ordinary operations of the association have received due and constant attention. The rooms have been materially Improved by tbe erection, without the actual payment ot. money by tbe association, of a neat partition, securing Ingress and egress to and from tbe read* ing room and library wltbout passing thrcugh tbe large hall of the association. The board of managers recently, on recommendation. established the principle that as a Christian association It was not only proper but clearly tbelr doty to see that the reading room be furnished, at the cost of the association, In order that such supply may be prompt snd reliable, with one paper and one periodical, which shall be recognized as tbe proper representation of each denomination united In the association; and In pursuance of this rule a number of religious papers, In addition to tbe large number otherwise received, have been ordered to tbelr files. A number of other papers and additional periodicals of tbe very highest character have also been placed on file or pledged by Individual members of the board, and a most commendable spirit manifested. Through the public spirit of members of Congress, and the courtesy of the postmasters of the Senate and House, a considerable number of dally /I I ^ ? J >11 _ t ? m 41.' ucwvpapcia nvm uibwcih auu ui>Mli pirilOI IDf country. In addition to those heretofore received, have been placed, aa they arrive, on the flies. In tbe several department*, then, of religious weeklies, of periodtcala, religious, literary and scientific, and of newspapers, the reading roam has recently received very valuable addition*. The board of managers at the last meeting ale? resolved to have published 1,000 coplea of the forthcoming report, together with a somewhat extended summary of that for the preceding year; the bad economy of not publishing a report at tbe clone of the last year having been so manifest as to leave no doubt of the wisdom of this course. The missionary so long sought for bv the Association, has arrived, In the parson of Rev. C. P. Lyford. of Steuben, Oneida county, N. who rp 4rhp<l (hie ritv on th? #?-w*nlrtr of A*? of the month, and entered upon the work on the morning of the 2d. This work he has since prosecuted dally, and with unsparing zeal. He has prea - bed the gospel once, twice, thrice, and even four tim?a a day, to those who otherwise could not have heard it; he has visited our mission schools, and has addressed words of encouragement to both teachers and scholars; he has distributed copies of the sacred scriptures as furnished by the American and Washington city Bible Societies: be has also distributed In large I numbers the religious tracts and papers, and the appropriate little book, as furnished by or purchased of the American Tract Society, the publishing establishment of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Boston Tract Society, and the Massachusetts Sabbath School Society Tbe present depository of the Assocation is, for the present, at Mr. Ballantyne's store, No 49H Seventh street, where those who would aid in this important work are requested to leave their names and donations. The following resolution, connected with this same general work, adopted at the last meeting of the Association, has been brought to the attention of tbe *uperintendents of divisions, but no definite arrangement has yet been made: "Resolved, That this meeting refer to the superintendents of divisions for tSeir consideration the subject of establishing without delay a lodging houae or home for newt boyi and other* of the same class." Mission Sunday Schools.?Two are In n lccestful operation, one at the corner of 91xth and N streets, meeting at 3K o'clock p. m.; the other on First street east and B street south, meeting at 3 o'clock Both these schools, especially that at the corner of Sixth and N,are particularly in want of reliable male teachers. Tne Fourth, or Western school, 1s still suspended for want of a room Cannot one be built 7 A member of the Association will furnish a suitable lot, for along aeries of veara, without other cost than the payment of the taxes The pra>er meeting at 7 o'clock each Saturday evening and the Htbllcal lecture immediately afterwards, Is to be regarded as a permanent institution of the Association, and both members and friends are cordially Invited. The pecuniary condition of the Association though without means that might be raott advantageously applied to extend its usefulness, Is yet tree from special embarrassment. One cbtireh during the last month has made a contribution of *65 SO, and three life members have been constituted After the adoption of an amendment to the constitution providing an Assistant Recording Secretary, ana the transaction of some other business, an election was Leld for officers for the ensuing year, which resulted as follows: President, Henry Beard; Vice Presidents, J H. Bradley, Jr., C. E. Uttermuehle, O. C. Wight, 8. E. Middleton, Moses Kelly, Treasurer, R T. Morsell; Corresponding Secretary, O. H Norton; Recording Secretary/Samuel McElwee, jr: Assistant Rec'g Secretary, J. C Clayton; Librarian. 8 W Stacy; Register, N Du liois; pirectors, O Knight, B. H Stlnemetz, J 8 Slater, J. H Fowle.

The following resolution waa unanimously adopted, and appropriately responded to by the retiring President: Rttolvtd, That tfie thanks of this Association are due, and are hereby tendered, to Mitchel H. Miller, Eaq , for the very efficient, untiring aad zealod* discharge of his datlea aa President of the Association during the past year. A committee?consisting of the retiring President, the incoming President, and Mr. O. C. | Wight?was appointed to make arrangement* for the anniversary, on the evening of the third Monday of April ensuing. During the evening, very Interesting and impressive remarks were made by Rev Dr Pterson, of Kentucky; Rev. Dr. Stevenson, of New York; Rev. C P Lyford, the missionary of the atlon; Rev. H. W. Read, of thla city; Samuel Fisher, Esq , of Cincinnati, and several members.
