In the spring of 1-57, and gave his experience in hunting lodgInga In Kngland and the practices of the nobUs there He would advise all Americana to take a title with them when they propose to vlalt John BuU, for be ia fond of titles. He went on to describe the weather, which, whea it rained onlv three times per week, was conaidered fine, lie thought the weather had much to do with the digestion, and attributed many of the habits of the English to the aoftnrsa of the atmosphere. He then drew a compari son between a buaineaaman of Broadway and ' one of England. While one went to hia buaineaa In a kind of dog-trot, the other would go at hia . leisure. It ?eemed to him aa if Americana were got up on the high pressure principle, and It was good for 'Item that they were all able to blow off I jjasenough to save their bodiea from burating. Tk?

On presenting his letters to a gentl< man be was almost dlacouraged by what seemed to be a ebilly reception; but waa agreeably sarprlied at hi* treatment afterwards. He waa told that certain attentions would be paid blm. and the Kng liahman not only performed all that te prom- | taed to do, but more. The key to gain John Bull's hospitality Is civility. In Parliament tbe debates are quite different from debates In this country. There, as soon ss a member rise* to apeak he commences to stammer, and as he proceeds be Is greeted with cries of 'bear, bear." When he fir?t FMirt th? n' Parliament be did not know what the "hear, hear,*' meant, bnt he never wii able to tell at what part of the debate he wan to And the ''(train of eloquence" to which be supposed the " hear, hear," to refer. He found all tbe member* who were unfavorable to America were very defective In tb?lr delivery, according to our notion*, while those favorably disposed 'o us seemed to have adopted our style or speaking. Mr fflilburn concluded by describing his vl?lt to Thomas Carlyle, and the agreeable manner in which he was received in comparison to his receptions by ?th-r personages. During the torture, the frequent happv hits, both at the English habits and our own, were greeted with applauae. Smtthsokiak Lkctckb?Last evening a large audience listened to tbe first lecture of Professor Falrinan Rogers, of Philadelphia, on "The Glaciers " The lecturer was aided In his explanations by a series of drawings and paintings, by which tbe audience were able to understand the subject folly. Mr. Rnvera romm?iM'?l h? abMns tt>?* ? central part of Knrope the lead was high, and la bwltxerland there were 96 peaks which were 1J.UJ0 feet above the level ot the ocean. In the vallie* of theae mountains the mow la perpetual, and If nature bad not deviled the meant of carryIngeff some of this mow bv these ft lacier*, the mountains would constantly Increase In height. He continued by describing the general appearance of the glaciers, one of which was some fourteen miles ia length and from one-half to one-anda-half miles In width The thickness of thlsglacier w?i estimated at from seven to ten hundred fret. Th's glacier, whose upper portion rested above the snow line and whose lower part rested below the line, flowed down the valley at the rate of some twenty Inches per day In the central portion The sides do not move so fast as the center on account of tbelr friction against the sides of the valley through which it flows The color of these glaciers were generally a green of about (be same shade as the water In our northern lakes. It bad generally been supposed that the Ice was o brittle that it would not flow; yet it was otherwise Aa It flows down the mountains of Switzerland it seems to be of the consistency of thick mud The lecturer noticed the various theories In regard to the movements of the glacier. As tt flows down In some places there are innumerable crevices. while in others tbev were closed He thought that this was owing tothefhet of thee lacier passing over projectloaa In the bottom of the valley la Its descent.

A ?la5die?Yeaterday the auaptclona of the Fwntb Ward patrolmen were excited by the utemerit of a colored man named Bell that a whit* woman named Manr Sheban save birth to a cLlid at?ls bouse last week; that the child was taken away by a man named Wm O'Brien, and was alive when taken away. The patrolmen thought that probably this might be the Infant found by the soldier last Sunday. O'Brien was last night arrested for a violation of the license law, and was also questioned abeut the child He said that the child was dead and he took It to bury It, and could show the place where he buried it He was this morning plaoeu In custody of Patrol mm n Haanaa to go and tod the grave A girl named Patsy Oo*k (white) stated thsttbe child was certainly dead, and tbat when carried away it had turned Mae The fact was as O'Brien stated It The Infant was burled In the old St. Prt r's burls! ground, was probably two days old when it died, and Bell dug the grave. Since i be matter was Investigated Hell haa not been aw i. He abould be punished for his attempt to da this Injury to O'Brien. The lafhnt before Its death was named Wm. Sbehan.
