The anniversary meeting of the Evangelical Society was held Tuesday evening at (lie church corner of Lafujrette Place, a most aristocratic neighborhood. Ihe church, which is a beautiful structure of chaste and elegant simplicity, was quite tilled and crowded by the elite of the aristocracy of the silk stocking ward, but with a largo sprinkling of old dowagerlike looking ladies, and without any admixture of plebeians. It might have been more animated, and there certainly would have been a greater amount of beauty present, had there been u few of the democratic beauties present. These however were all present at the Tabenacle to celebrate the anniversary of the New York and American Sunday School Union. The audience here certainly did look rich and well to do in the world, hut wanted that earnest look of dcvotednesH which we generally lhnl among the religions of the lower orders, and appeared to belong to the order of those who think that religion is merely a matter of form to thctn.? That it is all well enough for poor, wicked, per<>ns?hut for them who lend a sober life, and don't gel drunk, it is not necessary, and they are sale enough if they go to church and set the example to tho?e be low them in station, who do not lead such good and holy lives as they do. The Honorable Thkodokk Fkki.inuupysen, presided, and the meeting was opened by singing that beautiful psalm, commencing ' The Heavens Per)are thy glory. Lord." And the delivery of a beautiful and impressive nmvAr Kv tli^ If Avitron/l \If Umwomnt.' ??? I. ~, .... 111 'I""" he most especially implored the blearing of God to rest upon the Olficers of the Society, and upon all their acts. The lion. Mr. Fkei.ini;iicysk.\ having made n few remarks explanatory of the nature and objects ot the society, and stated that Mr. Chester would read the Treasurer's reportMr. Chester read the di lie rent amounts which had been contributed by various towns. The following towns contributed the sums opposite thcni: Brooklyn, $590; Boston, $134t>; Baltimore, $1410; New York, $2,17.4; City Washington, $58, making, with what was received from others, a total of $'15,703. Among the items of expenditure, was a charge of $91 for discounting, and upwards of$ 1,900 for the Itev. Mr. Kirk's salary. The total sum extended was $15,275, leaving a balance in treasury of Jj'457 49. 'ihe report of the executive committee was then read by the Hcv. E. M. Kirk. It stated that the Committee had reason to believe that there were a larger number of persons readers of the Bible than at any other time since the fall of Adam. It regret- , ted the removal of their late Chairman, S. \'. 8. Wilder, from the city? and with reference to the labors of the Society, it stated that the total number of persons employed bv the society in distributing the Scriptures in Vranee was not far short of 200, almost all of whom had been converted from Human Catholicism. It stated that since lHlSthe Bible Society in France had distributed 2,072.514 Bibles. It referred to the successful labors of the Evangelists employed by the society, to the cause of education, which had been assisted by the society, and to the circulation of tracts, and made a powerful appeal to the sympathies of the members of the society on behalf of Francs. It then proceeded to review the efforts of this society in Switzerland. Spain, tiermany and Sweden, (where he stated that one of their missionaries, the Hev. Mr. Scott, had been niueh persecuted on account of misrepresentations of his principles. Canada was referred to, and the miserable state of u portion of the population was aeplored. not one in fifteen beiiur able to r.-sul <?r write, ft concluded by ending for iiicrcMicd subscription. and by some solf-gratulation for the share the members hud in forwarding the cause of religion. The chairman then introducd the Rev. Mr. CHvEvra.who said, the idea of the Foreign K.vangelical Society, scarcely evei enters my mind, without my feeling assured of the downfall and destruction of Antichrist. It will be the natural consequence of the field it occupies. The boauti. ful ellipse of territory surrounding the Mediterranean Sen, containing the I'aradise of Kartli, if there can be a Paradise in its fallen state, is shared tietweeu the two chief forms of Antichrist, Popery and Muhommedanism. Any ctlorts made by man for tlieir overthrow is prcjxisterous; it must proceed from the Lord and the Church. It rests upon the predictiousof the apostle " whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of hii mouth, and the brightness of his coming." This intimates no half way, in the downfall of Poprrv. This prediction, however, display* no symptoms of blood, of the application of the rack and the torture. Home people sup|wse that the soil where Its chief seat is. contains the means for the destruction of |>ope. | ry by the burning of Rome ; but no. it is to be the simple agency of the word of Cod. It will be sutticient for us to l dw ell on one simple leisson. and that is, reliance on the | word of God. This is lioth trite and conunoji. some w ill perhaps exclaim. Ho it is. but of all subject* it is perhaps the most imporlaut, and I am reminded that subjects the highest and most Jmpo-taut, are laid aside for a wlioic generation, because they are regarded as a matter of course. 1 sometimes think this is because we place too little reliance 011 the word of God, and the renron of this is. because wa have had too little experience of the power of divine truth. I am sure if we relied more on the word ol I Fx!, we should go forth as l.uther from the Church, and the vast system ol error would die. New forms of Romanism would die as toon as born. I repeat, we have too little trust in tJod, and this is shown by the spirit which would excuse the atioeinus iniquity of the war of F.ngland against China, and its war* in India, >>l> the ground that it was thconlv means of obtaining an entrance to those liatious?of obtaining access for the (d ispel. They don't believe Ood has made Ins word powerful enough, thRt it is dependent upon political circtmistnnce?, instead of it being totally and entirely independdiriiU They forget that, lei the position be w hat it may, the nergy of C Kid's word is superior to it. But we an- not tnoridy to advocate the cause of Christ, in the May day of religion, when a< Hunj an, ill his Pilgrim's Progress s .ys, " she w inks in her glass slippers." It is, how "ver. seldom we Icel that electric, lilc-pving touch, which our souls can only receive from the hand of the Author of our being. We need a new Baptism from the word of liod. We are nreutoiiual to to use the word of thai as an external lamp, rather than au internal fountain, and it is for this reason that so much of the piety of the nge is ineffectual. Trees in the midst of the forest after the) nre rotten to the core, oftener stand by the strength mid thickness of the bark ; so the sanctity of lunns will keep the church in the position, and giseit the appearance of life, long after the spirit of religion has departed. A grant ndinirnhle, and distinguished writer has said, that to carry the feelings of childhood to the power of manhood, to combine thu child's feelings of wonder and tuoonishmeut w i'.b the experience ol years, is the characteris tic of genius. 80 it is in religion, to carry the feeling* of res cent conversion on to the experience of the aged christian. What a liappv case is that! This is power ! thi* is faith ! This is what bnxtvr experienced, and if we could call him up. he w oul t say this w as Fluny mi's secret. It will not make a preacher learned, but it will make him aloqneut, and he would certainly be the mean* of winning soul* to <>od. If thi* spirit makes it* appeoranrr in the south of F.urojie, and we have the assuraur.r of (iod that it will, then the antique structure ol Romanism will fall to the ground like ice palaces of the yviutcr before the summer's sun. We must look for the uprising of Luther* fivin among the I'riosls of Rome, and they will be bright and burning tight* and examples, for there i? a sriirit an I cuer gy in those converted from error to truth, seldom or never loiind in those educated in the truth frum their youth up. We shall y et sec such a race of reformers rise up. We are sure of it. The President It. en iol r? t..e?.t lb- ll-e 11- n. - who said. it must have struck many of those who have l>oen present or engaged in 'he anniversary of this society, that it has the almost universal suffrage of those w ho have ( en to the settle of i(? operations, and have learned to love religion at home. It was when I w as in those land* mentions! in the report that I learne.l to love this institution, and that I vowed to advocate its cause and carry forward its purposes, fan one look ujon such a multitude as are pressed to the dust beneath the strong arm of power; ami is it not enough to swell our hearts with sympathy, and enusa us to ask is there no relief I When w r look hack to the age of the Apostles sic (lid the church was rhararteri/.ed by unity of purpose'' and simplicity af trust." They hail but one purpose, and that w as to save the world. I rejoiee at tha (empathy evinced for distant Innds. It ia this which mark* the great triumph preparing for freedom and truth. The apostles used simplicity in iheir manner of converting the world. They had no great machinery to carry with them. They I mated to the word of (Jod and the mediation of Jesus Idhrist, applied hv the power of the Holy (Jhoat. They aught that the doctrine of the cross alone had powor I io save. Clod has said his word should not return to him void, and I trust on tha blessing uf God on our proceedings.

Anniversary of thr American Home Missionary Not-let y. Tin* sixteenth anniversary of litis valuable institution was held on Wednesday evening in the Tubernacle. The house was almost us much crowded as in the forenoon, 011 occasion of the meeting of the Tract Society. As usual, the ladies, old and young, fair and passable, formed by fur the largest port ton of the audience. The accommodations for the reliorters were as miserable us they ever were on any former occasion at the Tabernacle, and that is saying a good deal. The table ut which they had to write was situated at a corner of the plutform on the floor of the building, and at quite a remote point from the speakers. The consequence wag, that it was at times utterly impossible to catch a word, and li was wiui me grcaiem uiincuuy inai our reporter was enabled lo oatcli any of the speakers.

Tht'Crenl Fourth Act of the Annual RoII^IousDi'ama In the City of New York?The !illth Anniversary of the Bible Society? * Another Great Gathering at the Tabernacle* \VV hari nnfahprcmm.lnr on.l * tlit* Tabernacle yesterday. The body of the building presented pretty ntuch the same scene that it did on Wednesday; that is, it was literally (illed with females?but they were much older than those who attended the Tract Society meeting. The young und handsour* females present on Wednesday looked like tract distributors ; the ladies present to-day looked more like bible distributors ; and what was a little singular, a very large propor tion of those present were evidently widows, being clad in deep mourning. And intermingled with this immense mass of women there were not twenty men in all. Tlte crowd was not near so great as at the Tract Society meeting; die scats in the gallery were only two thirds filled ; and there were very few persons in the seats under the galleries. The attendance of clergymen was very slim compared to former years; and when the officers of the society entered and took their seats, the remainder of the seats on the platform were not half full. Many clergymen came in, however, quite late, and of course had to make a great fuss in getting to a seat, rather than take a seat in the lowest places under the galleries. All this should he corrected. < 'n the platform were Dr. Brownleo, the president of Yale College, Mr. Frelinghuyscn, Dr. Bethuue, the Ne-torian Bishop, Mar Yuhiinnan, and the Persian Missionary, Mr. Perkins. The Bishop, with his unique dress, and majestic heard, was, as usual, quite u lion, and its lie sat close to the front of the platform, he was an object of considerable interest to the ladies, and not a little to the men. lie wore , his turban, formed of a large shawl twisted round Ins head with it large tail of red cloth behind. The Chair was taken by John Cotton Smith, presid ait of the Society, und lie was supported by some J si < <?r ciaht of the Vice Presidents. , The following was the order of exercises. The meeting was opened at ten o'clock precisely 1 by the reading of the third chapter of the Epistle to ] tin* Hebrews by the Kev. Dr. Lvell. , The President of the society, John Cotton Smith, r of Sharon, Connecticut, read an address, which it j was impossible far the reporters to hear, as their i table was u long way behind the siieaker, und he ? uddressed the audience in a low tone ot voice. 1 Mr. llvnt* read an abstract of the Treasurer's re- * pott, which stuted tliut there was a balance of of ?531.41 due to the Treasurer at the commencement of the year; that tlvt ??ti>ciid;tiire bud been $1X1,64!) . 70. and receipts $134,367;04, leaving a balance due to the Treasurer of 1 a.. . -.1 !... - < ? on aimuaii <;i iu- 111111.1^11 pii-j'Ull WUN r*MU l?_V ?

There have J also been 67 new auxiliary societies, one of which is in Texas, and another in the Sandwich Island*, , added to the society. The receipt* of the society exceed those 0f the previous year by $15, 406, ni- \ though the depressed state of business, and Inch J rate of exchange, had rendered remittances dini- ' cult, the affair* of tlie society were most eneou- 1 raising. The number of bibles and testaments I print d was 276.000, an increase over last year of ItM.OOt). The number issued was 237,000, an increase of 106,001). The total number issued since the formation of the society wns :t,052.000. s large proportion ol which iiad gone to the new Mtnfe* in the West. The library <?l the society consists of upwards of lOOO volumes of valuable works, and includes one t.siin copy of the Scriptures, printed in the year 1176, shortly nfier the discovery of printing. It also contained nine bildcs older than the edition of King James printed in 1611. Most of these volumes have been benefactions and bequest* to the society. Stereotype plates have likewise been cast of the whole of the New Testament and Hook of Psnlntsfor the printing of books lor the use of the blind. ' he lite members are allowed two copies of the Scripture* nnnnally for distribution, and the lite directors fi\e for the same purpose The society has employ*! ten travelling agents durim' 'he whole year, .aid four others for a part of the ^ear. To Maine 8,000 1 lible*and Testaments have been sent, and $2,012 received. 'To Vermont S.OttO volumes sent, and ?'2,004 received. To Connecticut, 4,700 volumes, ? i,n,| $6,001 received.

The directors had anticipated that the receipt* of the society would have enabled tliein to >ay all these, but #'3),till only has been paid in difvr'cnt proportions among them, leaving more than ane half unpaid. This has been occasioned by the receipts of the last half year not having equalled those of the first half, instead of exceeding, as it generally does, and the directors had anticipated it would. The report concludes by the expression of t!l> gratification ol the inaiiaiiers thai ?ai inneli [mil been done, but regretted they had not been able to perform more.

IlA'STHIJltN, w)lOH|>oke !IH tollowH: I l ite for the purpose of moving the adoption of the Reports, an abstract of which you huvo heard reml, and that t lie printed ami circulated under the direction ot the Board ot Manager*, i will not begin by making any n|?lugy relative to my hav ing to address \ uu, or by expresshug a u iih that it bad fallen into alder hands than mine to move this resolution. I am glad of the opportunity atford"d me of rising and addressing a few words to this august lsxembly. I am gla.1 of the opportunity 1 have of expressing the unaltered attachment I have felt to [Ins institution, the llihlc Society , ever since it vv as foundL-d. Iliad the high and blessed privilege of standing on lie platform and addressing the Society when quite a youth, and soon after 1 had received ordiiiutioii into holy irdi-rs from the hands of the bishop of my church. Now, with the lapse of years, I stand lielmi; you again to assure run that my attachmont and confidence is strengthened with even year that passe*. Truly, 1 do seem to love lie Bible Society more and more every y cur of its existsace, anil unless, indeed, there should lie some indications ?but the possibility of which I doubt?of unsoundness in ihe principles on which it is founded appear, I shall perserere, and shall continue to give my confidence and sup. port to this noble charity to the latest moment of my hie. I think all < christians, and till protestunts ought to love the Bible Society. The fact of its existence gives prnmittunce to the great prutcstant principle thut the Uihlo is the sole rind only- rule of practice for man. Where u Christian goes forth in this blessed work, he has the assurance ol this hook, which we believe we hav c good authority for believing to be the word of God, that God has put therein rob s to guide man to what they should believe and do. It contains all that is bindingon the human conscience. It is our all and in all. In these days, Mr. I'rciideut. w hen it is the fashion to place that revaience we are bound tq pay to the volume of inspiration lower than we have been ueetistutiiod to pay since the great Reformation?it seems of much more importance that sueh institutions as tit's should exist throughout the world, and that the principles on w hirh it is formed should be brought forvv ard. As an Episcopalian, sir. I feel an immeasurable depth ot ibligaticiu to this society, which is spreading the principles contained in the 39th article of my beloved church, tad which is, that the holy script urn contains nil that is accessary to the salvation of man, and that whatever is tot Contained in them is not requisite to the salvation of nan. (Applause.) Mr. President, another ground why We should love the Bible Society, is because it docs not online the circulation of that blessed volume to any one :btireh, and by this union of .Christians we can accomplish no results which could not lie accomplished by nn\ single-handed influence w hatever. Just let his audience all to mind the vast results which have been accomplishM bv the Bible Society ill the ;o years since its ftrn establishment. Can j on conceive, by any possibility, that any single-handed effort and isolated attempts could have jrcom pusneu or ornugni io ]>uks sum vast results ? i just i'Sst inv eye ov i;r the southern portion ol this vast cm iiicnt, then over the northern portion, travcrs. tin an anil extend my view over tin'face of 1 rope ! tin Tost expanse ot Asia, look at tli ?*\:< >: llunsia, view tli" vast plains ol i. > i wi'j. tin most K'niitiful anil interesting s of tie eirth, and yet the inhabitants m o the lowest depths of degradation, both tm> and spiritual, mil then view the extensive and nun "its Islands of tin West, and I ask myself, I n-k v mid voti without Union, union u hieh is strength might, and power, have accomplished the vast results ? lithe Society bus done I There are times when one thought will cross my inind and take strong hold?and perlia]* it is the ease with But 1 have often thought when at anniversaries like this, what would those Martyrs of blessed memory, who Were burnt at the stake for maintaining the truths by Which wu benefit?what would these .Martyrs have felt, could they have been gifted with the power of looking thtough the successive centuries and seen the distribution of the volume which contains Klernal Life, by the means ol this Society. This, Mr. 1'rosidcnt, was the greut object of those Reformers. It was to put the Bible in the hauds of the people in their native tongue. Luther said he should toil in vain, his labors were nought until he had translated the Bible nhil placed it in the bunds of the common people as a weapon from the armory of God. Wicklitl'e said he had done nothing till he had translated the Bible. And the utmost that these great men eould do would lie to spread the Bible within the narrow limits ol their own countrv. And oh ! how often must their noble minils have wandered with anxiety to other climes and to other nation s. But to comeback to the idea with wliic h I started, I say, how would those great und noble men have felt if they Could have lookw I down aid have hailed with gratitude if they could see it, the effects which by union, by the iiguucy of translators, by the complicated and vast yet simple machinery of this society lime been accomplished, that it lias carried to every clime and to every shore the blessed gospel of Christ, I am thankful Mr. President, that there lias been no diininution'in the confidence reposed in the principles of this institution hv the concourse assembled and the whole world. In Kngland there is a parallel ins itution. I was pleased to learn that although they had from causes which prevailed there Imt'not here, lost some member! belonging to the Church of Kngland, v et their lo?s bad been more than made up by accessions from the Church of Kngland. I am glial to perceive from the rri>ort which has been read thnt notwithstanding the storm w hich has sw ept over the commercial horizon, the receipts have been larger than they were the preculing year. I wish also the audience to attend to the f.tct that the auxiliaries?the right arm ol the Institution, nre three fold more numerous tliun they were lust year. It looks like increased confidence In this'Society. What can wodeduce from Uiis I that the Society is likely to perish I The Bible Society never can perish!? It is too God-like ! No Society v hich spreads the word ol God ran perish ! We may, sir, I think, reasonably look forw ard that on this institution w ill he rained dow n smiles from heaven, and the crown of benediction. 1 conclude by moving the adoption of this resolution :? Kc?olvcil, That the report, an abstrnrt of which hut been road be printed and circulated under the direction oi the managers. Mr. Bri HASAN, the British f'ousul, rose and taid?It is quite unexpected that I stand here, and have the honor to address you. It was not notilied to me before mv arrival, tli at I should be privileged to second this resolution. I w ill merely diri-et the attention of the meeting to the litenil fulfilment of prophecy. It has been said. I w ill make the dumb to speak, and the blind to see. And surely, ncHording to the rejiort, we lind that the blind do read the word of God. I second. Sir, the adoption of the resolution a hich has been read. The resolution was then put, and carried unanimously. Dr. Kain rose and said I might, Sir, proceed to make ipologics to you. I might say that 1 was unaccustomed o public speaking; I might say that it ui not two hours linre 1 v, as informed I was to nddri >s this august audience, rius society commenced in ISOI; since then, a w hole golerntion has passod away. True, there are persons in the X'orld who then existed, but the number of deaths since hat time hus equalled the population of the whole vorld. If the population of the world is MM nillions, then has that number passed into the iresence of their maker. How thrilling must tie the ilea that we must stand before our Maker with these KX) nillions face to face.

'1 he success w hicli we claim for the Bible is ow ing to the promise of Him w ho gave it, that it will not return to him void, hut accomplish that v. hereunto he sent it,and that is the regeneration of the world. And to estimate the progress of the gospel we must go farther than the easual or sceptical observer. Ile must go to its first annunciation by Jesus of Nazareth, and trace its onw ard ami triumphant progress throughout all succeeding ages, and in every luml, doKpitc of every obstacle and every opposition.

And, sir, if u e u oulil see the sumn success attend our Republic, which has hitherto shone upon it, we must remain firm and steadfast in our attachment to the Bible, and the God of the Bilde.
