' The c>air was t .ken by the Hon. Tiikodork Frxlino. I hi ??t >, the President of the Society. A hacred air was thei played i a goo J style on the organ, after which the Hev. Dr Vale, (wo believe,) offered up an appropriate prayer. VV W. Chester, Esq., the Treasurer, then read his re. port, from which it appeared, that the finances of tho Society were in a very prosperous condition- the receipts having been during the past year about $1S,000. The Hev. Dr. Baiao next read the Secretary's report. It was. ai these documents always are,too long and prosy. It would be much more judicious if a synopsis merely of these reports would be presented at the annual meetings. The report referred in complimentary terms to the aux. ilinry societies, and particularly alluded to the Baltimore Ladies' Association. Several individual families, in various parts of the Union, each support a colportmr during the ) par. or the winter campaign of five months Several instances of individaal zeal in the cause ol the society were enumerated. One young gentleman in Philadelphia, after bearing a sermon preached by Dr. Bfeird, had sent a valuable diamond ring and breast pin to be sold ia Paris, and the proceeds appropriated to the object of the society. The penonntl of the society consisted of about eighty individuals, stationed in vatkiui parts of the Enrep -an country, England, France, Belgium, Italy, and Switzerland. [At this stage of the proceedings Colonel Stone was seen making slowly up the middle of the aisle. He forced his way up to the Ireiil of the platform with characteristic modesty, aud after subjecting a number of ladiei and gentlemen on the front seat to considerable inconve ni -nee,he squatted himsellin oneof the most comfortable seats he could select ] The report went on to detail in a very interesting manner the success of the society, and concluded by an earnest appeal io its supporters to continue their exertions. A piece of music was then sung by the choir. The Keveoend Dr. Bacon, of New Haven, Connecticut, moved the adoption of the report. The iact that is Christianity was in conflict with irreligion and idliJelinty and paganism, for the dominion ot the world. The spirit of propagandism was arraying itself in that contest; already bad the conflict commenced botween two opposing farms of Christianity?so called? and the two opposing elements are everywhere in the fi-Id, marshalling and encountering each other.? What were those opposing forms T The names Popery and Protestantism did not sufficiently uescribe these two editions of Christianity ?one of which must he the devil's edition, revised and amended by the author. Ho would look rather to the essence of the two systems. The idea of the one was organizaJTumty. Its name implied that? universal uniformity. That was the cornerstone. The idea of the other was individual responsibility. In the one system the individual was worth no more than the a >1 tier iu an army. He counts, and is food for powder. But in th" other every man was the patriot who lights on his own hook. In the one the individual stood alone be1 jre the cross, and no church?ro organization?no priesthood?no human intercessor had any thing to do with him in his intercourse with the one Qod and Father of all. The one was a Christianity of multiplied observances and ceremonies?of salvation by works. The other was the worship of God, without human interference?salvation free, without sacrifice or priest. This said to the question* u What must I do to be saved Repent. The other said, " Do penance"?a wilful falsification of the Holy Book. There was no truth in langw >gf. il there was any such meaning in the Word of God. To the question ' How may I bo saved J" tho spiritual Christianity said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ." What said the other 7 Fast, and yet you needn't last too much. (Laugh ) Pay the priest, and if he don't save you, he run'the risk, not you. (Laughter.) The on is a re'i^ion orfor.tt, the other of spirit. One is the leligion of tra Irion, the other ol written revelation from G 'd. The tra.litfo i hr eight down a dead form, the other living foul. And look at the affinities of the two ! The one. uu'?r the ihudow of its cathedral, sought to sustain . mouldering krone* and institutions which had outlived theiriijie Tno oth.tr war with liberty and progress? the freedom ol the human race. The one taught the ind vi.'"ilto sir his yroyers and m 3 ke the sign of the cross. P. it tb" other to cned the rational and intelligent being. It tic-ran by cn'lgtti?r?i3g indiriltial mind, and so it ill m is'ed (he pis-tet It would not rest until it put in o'h hinds of all th" Word of God, and therofoxe i't alfi .ilies were with Irtodom and the liber y of men. Theie a:e the systems now in conflict.? Heretofore,they h id suit w?re, divided Christendom, and ha t c,mien ledoniy on t ?e frontiers. The one had been among the Teu'o its nations of Europe ; theother among the nations Speaking languages founded in the Latin tonguo Bui hourwai It now with England? What was the grea'q uestion tlmt agitated that iand 7 It was this virry one ti> which h- tan l dMnmon. In this country , too, it was thp gre?t c? uroversy of all controversies?

He was a'ck at the half rioter tautism of this country. If Popery were fashionable, they would be surprised at the crowds that would flock to it. He was not afraid of the importation ot priests from abroad, or the roaring in of funds to build splendid cathedrals, did not frighten him much. He had no tsar of the progress of Popery. It never Lad progressed and it never would, home people, ignorant of history, of the Bit'll- and of Romanism as it is, might go over to it ; but lie had no fear lor the lower classes if they get their children educated. The R -v. Dr. Asa mi. of this city, next made a rather pr.?sy speech, and after the singing of a hymn by the choir, the audience dispersed. Conversion of the World, Tuesday, 4- P. M., at the Pearl street Church. The Convention on this important subject met accord, ing to programme. Whether it was set down in the bills or not, we cannot say, but the Convention apent the first half hour in the sua in front of the Church. The doors w ere then opened, the aexton having at last arrived, and the Convention adjourned to the inside of the Church. We aro sorry to aay that the meeting was rather thinly atti-uded. considering the importance ol the subject. Bkrjsmik F. Bctlks, Esq., moved that Mr. Horace Holden take the Chair. The question was taken, and carried. The Rev. Mr. Choulct was appointed Secretary of the mooting, which wu opened with prayer by Dr. Bacon, of New Haven. A paper, on the following anbject, "Scheme for the action of the Convention," wai then read. The subjects touched upon weretheae :? I. The Spirit of Mission*. a. Prayer of Faith, with reference to the Conversion of the World. Tne inadequacy of the means at present employed to convert the world for many generations. 4 The necessity ol Christian Mission, to the accomplishment of the great work of converting 30,000,000 ul heathens. a. The principles of action in evangelizing the world. 0 Kvangelical labor lor the destitute. The number ol laborers must be increased. 7. The practicability and duty ol Christians to evangelize the world during the present generation. The atiove paper w as then submitted to the Convention. Mr U -tler stated the great object for which the Convention was convened. It wai to unite the churchea in thr great work of converting tha world, and to let each denomination know ita proportion of the work assigned to it?alao, to Interchange views?concert measures?and send up their prayers together to the Throne of Grace Alter some iHrther re orlts, Mr. Biti.er produced several letters which bsd been addressed to the Rev. Geo. It Cheever, the former Ser.retary of the Convention. The fl-#t one was from a Missionary at Constantinople. This letter pretested a very favorable view of the state and progress of religion thioughout almost every part of the world. Denmark, Sweden. Scotland, fcr. It contained words of hope and cheering encouragement to the church. Thenext letter was from the Rev. Mr. Dwightof Constantinople.

Important from Washington?Final Arrangement*, We have very late and important news from Washington,which developesthe arrangements of Captain Tyler and his Cabinet,that may stand good during the present week. We will not answer, however, for next week, or any day thereafter. It seems,then,that Captain Robert Tyler in a letter to Mr. Towle, the new Naval Officer, says among other things laying down the "law and gospel" for New York, that "the long agony it ootr; Mr. IVebster retire* next tctrk." This, we believe, is the substance of his despatch, but it indicates that Captain Tyler and his administration, have determined at last to sr'iI on the democratic tack, till they put about ship. The other arrangements are also nearly made, and are nearly as followsMr. Webster retires on Monday to Marshfield, as an honorary member of the cabinet, to catch fish and make chowder during ths summer, and to study Jefferson's principles under the superintendence of Captain Robert Tyler, who certifies to his good conduct. About the month of August it is expected that the British Cabinet will send over Lord Brougham, and Sir John Macgregor of the Colonial Depart, ment, as commissioners for arranging the terms of a new commercial treaty. On their arrival Captain Tyler intends to appoint Daniel Webster and John C. Calhoun Commissioners on the part of the United States for a like purpose. The commission will be opened in Washington in December, there to discuss, arrange and settle the terms of a grand commercial treaty, that will be a leading movement in the general establishment of free trade throughout the world. The French ministry has also indicated the same purpose, and will follow in ths footsteps of England. Ss much for that point. Mr. Legare will be Se creiary ot State?some pure democrat Attorney General?Judge Upshur will go to France?Mr. Cushing go to China?and a general movement made throughout the country to catch the " young democracie,"as they catch flies along shore, by a liberal use of molasses, laid out in proper places,and in proper quantities. A general removal is also to be made of all the suspected officials in all the large cities?Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and elsewhere. For New Haven, orders passed through yesterdaj, for the removal of S. Miles, Marcus Merriman, Jr , T. Lester, and Eli Mix, from the Custom House of that city, and the appointment in their places of the following Tyler men:?Anson Colt, William H. Jones, and Ira Merwin. The Boston Custom House and Post Office will r.lso be thoroughly whitewashed and ventilated in a week. This news is all true as gospel, and highly important. Captain Tyler and the " old guard" are determined to cut up the democracy root and branch, and to be the next President in spite of fate. Success to him. Office Seekers in Washing ton.?Tha degrading spectacle is presented to the American people ol the Presidential mansion actually besieged by a set of " office beggars." We learn that scarcely a car arrives at the scat of government without a greater or lesx "delegation" of self-styled " representatives" of the " democracy" of this and other cities, who immediately repair to the White House, and present their "bills" for the geiting up of some "picayune'' meeting, with resolutions laudatory of the President, and defamatory of his cabinet and tried fripnria It is our "purpose to give the history of some of these ] patriotic gentlemen, and we are much deceived if they do not cut a queer figure in print. "We have still an abiding trust that the President will be on his guard against these sinister deputations. Not a man among them applies to him under this garb, who has not been effectually cast off by the democratic party, which he pretends to represent. If our advice is worth any thing to the President, we say to him?before you trust these new convorts, be sure you know the men. The Abolition Anniversary.?From among the other anniversaries, we particularly call the attention of our readers to the "ravings" of this body of wild fanatics, for we can call them by no other name. j In their meeting yesterday, one of their speakers ] declared that to carry out their purposes they would trample under fool both the constitution and the church. This is madness of the very worst kind, and indicates most conclusively that abolitionism in the north is on its last legs. Such violence and folly, such absurdity, such blasphemy almost, can inspire nothing hut contempt and detestation. The south need never be afraid of abolition as it is now developing itself among us. It is perfectly crazy?perfectly impotent?p rfecily harmless, and completely contemptible. At the last election they could not raise 200 votes in a population of nearly 300,000. The Hurricane in the Chamber of Commerce ? The election for the new officers of the Chamber of Commerce promises to blow a hurricane?a bit of an earthquake, and two-thirds of a volcano. The Mount Etna of Castle Garden is a mere lighted segar (one of Henrique's best) to this business. Messrs Goodhue, M'Cracken, and others, ara the candidates of the "drab-gaiter party," and cracking work it will be. Who the "eel-skins" take up we have not heard,but eels are slippery, sliding,smooth articles, and we should not be surprised if they ilid into office all standing. Perhaps the election may determine the doctrines of free trade anct perpetual motion for n century?and, again, perhaps it may not. Tweedledum and twcedledee never did fit so before or since. Intent to Poison on board a United States Ship or Vessel, no Crime.?This seeming offence nuniiim mw ana gooa morals, in not provided tor oy the Crimes Act, or any law? of the United States. It ian moat siugularomission, and scarcely credible; yet we have the authority of Judge Belts for saying that such is the fact. Should a person be actually poisoned, then there arp law? to reach the case, and punish the offender; hut there is no law to punish an attempt to poison. It is in this view of the case, that the Icllow, John Christian, lately cent home from Bab in for an attempt to poison Captain Stanhope, is to be discharged from custody, as there is no law to reach his case. It is very remarkable. Accident.?Tuesday afternoon n .sail boat coming through llurlgale, containing five ["ersons, Ch|?ized, and two were drowned. " Docroa Manlky."?In our reporter's accouat of Abby Kelly's speech, delivered at Columbian Hall, virnuu eirrei, on r naay evening i&si, mere wa3 an allusion made to a " Doctor Munley," which was supposed by some to refer to Dr. Manley of this city. This is altogether a mistake. We happen to know Dr. Manley well, and a more excellent, worthy and respectable man, in all the relations ot private and professional life, does not exist. He has no connection?nor takes any part in politics, abolition, or any like subject. His whole energies ere devoted to his profession, of which he is as distinguished an ornament as any man in New York. The Dr. Manley referred to in the report is a southern clergyman?a doctor of divinity, and violently opposed to abolition. Mr. Carr, Ex Consui. to Tangiers ?Mr. T. N Carr, formerly U. S. Consul at Tangiers, in the empire of Morocco, has published an able and conclusive defence of his conduct in reply to certain charges made against his official conduct while he was in the service of his country in Africa.1 These charges appeared recently in a letter from Genoa, published in tne Tribune, and is supposed to have been written by Mr. Lester, the U. S. Conc.i .1 r...n;oku^ modore Morgan, then at that port. Mr. Carr has conclusively es ablished by the evidence of every European.Consul at Tangiers, that his conduct had been on all occasions, manly, appropriate and becoming an American functionary. The difficulty grew out of the gross insolence, and religious prejudices of the Moors, who must be chastised periodically to keep them in decent manners. There is now some reason for believing that the proceedings of Commodore Morgan who was sent to arrange the affair, were not taken with wisdom or discretion. At all events, Mr. Carr stands before his country and the world, perfectly sustained in the whole course of his official or private conduct during the residence in Tangiers. Assembling of the New Boards. At an early hour yesterday morning all the avenues to the entrance ol the Board of Aldermen's room were crowded with anxious spectators, who appeared to have had the ridiculous supposition that all could crowd into the small space occupied by visiters in the lobby ef the room. The arrangements for the pre. servation of order by the officers were entirely inefficient, and when the doors were opened at twelve o'clock there was a perfect rush,jam, slam,mash and crash, and in went Mayor, Aldermen, reporters,office seekers, office holders, loafers,and spongers, mixed up with a few pickpockets and handkerchief twitchers. The lobbies of the reom and teats for spectators were filled in an instant, and order be. ing restored, Mayor Moaais ascended the speaker's seat, and said that he had been sworn into office by the First Judge ol the County and Recorder of the city, and was therefore 1 now prepared to execute that duty for the members of thn rirtut-.l 1 The Aldermen were then called up in trioa, and after ' signing the roll, Old Hays handed them the book, and the 1 Mayor delivered the following oath of ottice 1 " Yon promise to support the constitution of the United States and the State of New York, and faithfully to discharge the dnties of the office of Aldermen according to 1 the best of your abilities, so help you Ood." The members having been sworn, the roll was called, ' and the following gentlemen answered to their names : 1 1st ward E.B.Clayton, 10th ward E. F. Purdy, 1 3nd " C. 8.

Alderman Lee nominated Elijah F. Purdy. Alderman Scoles nominated Caleb 8. Woodhull. < Aldermen Waterman and Scoles were appointed tellers. ] The ballot resulted as follows : Elijah F. Purdy, 13 Caleb 8. Woodhull 4 Blank 1 Alderman Purdv was then declared elected President of the Board, and Aldermen Woodhull and Brevoort appointed to accompany him to the chair. Alderman Poanv took his seat and returned thanks for < the compliment conferred npon him, in the following pertinent speech Oeittleiseiv or the Boabd or Aldermen:? Accept my acknowledgments for the honor you confer on me by calling me to preside over your deliberations. It were deing injustice to my feelings, should I omit the em- 1 pression of my warm gratitude for the proof of confidence < you have now beatowed upon me. In accepting thia honorable station, I would feel a greater diffidence did I not entertain a just reliance on your aid and indulgence in the discharge of its responsible duties. If punctuality in attendance, intended impartiality in decision, and honesty of purpose, are essential to the station you assign me, I may so far anticipate vour approval, and that of our constituents, for the faithful performance of its functions. Tha various and important duties entrusted to our care by ] the people we represent, demtnd our deliberate and , righteous consideration, and I assure you here fn the { outset of my earnest co-operation in every measure that , may tend to a more rigid economy in the expenditure of , the public moneys, and the stricteat accountability of the ] public agents. He then asked the further pleasure of the Board. | AlJarman Lie then nominated Samuel J.Willis as Clerk i of the Board, which was canied unanimously. ' He also nominated David T. Valentine aa Assistant ( Clerk?carried unanimously. t Alderman HsTrisLDlthen moved that Charles King | be removed from the office of Printer to the Board of Ai- j dermen, which was adopted without adiasenting voice. ] He then nominated Levi D Slamm for the vacancy. t Alderman Scolv.i nominated John I. Mumford. and followed the nomination with a fsw remarks, alluding to an 1 article in the New York Standard attacking Alderman < Purdy?on concluding, , Alderman Puanv remarked, looking at Coles, the collector of the Standard, who stood against the pillar opposite, that he was ready to answer that gentleman or hia master at anv time or place, at a future period. The ballot resulted as follows:? Tor Levi D. Slamm 11 " John I Mumford 6 " Blank I Jacob Ha vs was then nominated as Sergeant-at-Arm* of the Board which waa carried by a unanimous vote. The usual committee waa then appointed to inform the Board of AMiatanU and the Mayor that the Board waa ready to proceed to business. The rules of the previous Board were then adopted, for striking out that clause in the first section making it necessary for the President of the Board to be always present before the Board can he called to order Aldermen WiTtiMis then moved to repeal that portion of the ordinance vesting the power of appointing the Watchmen with the Captains of the Watch and the Joint Committee on Police, and restoring the same to the Mayor and Captainsof the Watch, as previously existed before the Whigs came into power last spring. Alderman Bcolbs opposed the repeal of the ordinance, and asked where were the evils that had sprung up in '.he change?ii any, he desired to know,'what tney were. Alderman Tiliol- replied that he thought,as the Mayor was at the bead of the Police, the appointment* of the watch should rest, to a certain extent, with him. H* could net say that any evila had sprung up from this change, nor could he say that any benefit had been derived from it Alderman Wat&msaiv said there waa a reason in frvor of the old plan of appointment,as the watchmen were then under the jurisdiction of the Mayor, who could keep an eye to those in place and rectify evils and non-performance of duty, which could rarely if ever be discovered by a committee of this Common Council, who were in no way brought into immediate connection with police duties. Aldermen 8coi.es rose a third time, and the President reminded him that the rule* prevented member from peaking three times on one subject. The question was then taken on the repeal of the ordinance, which was adopted by a 'vote or IS to 4 Alderman Clayton, of the First Ward, voting in tho affirmative The ordinance was then sent to the Board of Assistants for concurrence. Restoration of Office of Sergeant of the Afore.?AUlrrman Wats.rmav then moved that the ordinance abolishing the office of First Marshal or Sergeant of the Mace, be repealed, end the office restored as before the whigs came into power. Alderman Clayton moved to lay on the table, which was lost. The question was than taken and carried by a vote of 10 to 3. Alderman Clayton nnd Dvnnino asked to be excused from voting, being new members. Alderman Las. moved that a committee be appointed to examine into the conduct of the Inspectors of Flection of the Fourth District of the 16th Ward, for refuting to make rernrn ?t me proper penon.

Whilat waiting there he was accosted by one of the Burners, who are on the watch for the unsuspecting, who soon pumped him as to his whereabouts, ana finding he was from the country, soon made a plant. He commenced by asking him the time of day. Bob pulls out a watch he had 'paid $30 for, when the sharper pulls out a gold one, and wants to trade. They soon close the bargain by Bob's giving $12 to boot. Bob then hastens to his friends to show his prize, and asks the value, when, to his surprise he finds his gold watch is a regular shave, and not worth $5. Greatly enraged at the cheat practised on him, he sallies out, bent on turning the tables on some one. With this intent he visits the scene of his former adventures, and soon finds a customer who wants to buy a watch, and they soon close a bargain for $75. Now he hopes to recover the ground he had lost in his friend's estimation, and hastens to htm with the news, and expatiates on the trade he has been driving, and how fast he put nround the corner for fear the man would repent of his bargain and call him back ; but, alas! on showing the money it was of the Globe iBank, New York?not worth one cent. Not content, but hoping still to better his fortune, he tries to pass them on a tradesman, and gets kicked out of the ttore, and bids fair to figure before the Police as a passer of fraudulent money.
