American Female Moral Reform Society* rTIn? >un?U ?f this *icuiii uuiiivcieary ixicciiuk ul """ "vv#v*j took place in Allen street Presbyteiian church Tuee day evening, the Rev. Makcus Smith presiding. / platform was erected in front of the pulpit, upoi which were several ministers and a number of in fluential supporters of the society. A prayer havinf been offered up by the Rev. S. IIoks, the following hymn, composed for the occasion, was sung in t very pleasing style by a select choir Once more we litt the banner Of white robed Purity, And raise our glad Hosannah To Thee, our God, to Thee. Thy favor and thy bloiaing Have led us on our way, And still thy smiles possessing, We're met again to-day. Our cause shall never " languish," Though "vice and folly reign, While many a heart in anguish, Is weeping o'er the slain " Thou, gracious King of Heaven, Wilt mark, with thine own hand, The aouls whoso sighs are given Tor sin* that mar the land. Ere long, thy voice uplifted Shall plead with Sovereign power, Kor just commands resisted, And all thy foes shall cower. The mandate has been wiitten, And spread o'er land and sea? The wicked shall he smitten, And ceaso their revelry. O ! haste the glorious dawning, Thou Advocate above ; Of that thrice blessed morning, When all shall know tliy love ? Heaven echo back thy praises - And all shall bend the knee, And every note earth raise*, Be bolines* to Thee. The Rev. Dr. Green, of Upper Canada read th< Treasurer's Report. Front this it appeared that tin receipts of ih?* past year had been $7,150 20; th? expenditures $6,369 32; leaving a balance on hant ot $780 88. The reverend gentleman also read t certificate from an auditor as to the correctness o the accounts, and speaking very highly of the man ner in which the Society's books were kept, the] evidencing great accuracy and fidelity. The Rev. E. Weed read the Annual Report ? This document commenced by an expression of re gret that all the good that was desirable had no been accomplished; hut that still the Society wa progressing and prospering, and there had been ai increase ol friends and supporters during the pas year. Alter stating the origin and progress of tin Society up to the last year, it stated that durin; that period upwards ot 290,000 publicationi had bsen distributed, being upwards of 24,00< a month, together with 99,000 tracts, and 5000 lSmt publications. A very complimentary tribute o respect was paid to the late Mrs. Prior, who ha< been an active supporter of the Society for man] years. It then proceeded to state that the Commit tee had deemed it necessary to establish a Registt; office in connection with the Society, and which wa found of preat benefit. There had been tome mitapprt henaion in relation to this branch of the Society. It wa< thought by lotnc perron* that thia office only supplier *uch set vants as haul been reclaimed to the path of virtue It was quite the opposite to this. There harl been 63 calls at this office during the past year, and many bm found Christian home* through it* means?forty parent had been found for orphan*, or such as were worse o! than orphans. By the auxiliary branches of the Sociut; great good had been effected ; 993 garments, 100 pair of shoes, and several article* of bedding had been distri butod. The Visiting Committee had also effected mucl good, and several cases of the recovery of many wh< were thought to have been lost, had been accomplished but yet they had occasion frequently to weep over th< wreck of virtue, and their efforts had been strongly d vected to save the young Two Reverend gentlemen ha! been appointed as agents during the past year, on of whom had visited upwards of thirty Auxiliar Societies. Of the Bethel Department, an equally satisfar tory r?]>ort was made ; 1933 vessels had been visited an publications and tracts distributed among the crews. Th Committee congratulated the Society on the higher tun of virtue which had been assumed by the judges, juriei and lawyers during the past year. The New Jersey L? gislature had enacted some very wholesome statutes dui ing that time, and the New York Legislature had give: a very favorable hearing to similar measures. The Ner England States were pursuing a similar course : and fror correspondence they (earned that the subject of moral ri form was exciting considerable attention in London ; an that petitions to the British Legislature had been prosente praying for enaotments in support of such an object, an that Dr. Wardlaw had been severely attacked in con*< quenee of hi* publications on this subject in this city The utility of such societies could not now be questionec The Registry ottice, in particular, had done much goo in protecting the innocent and directing the virtuoui The report concluded by congratulating the members c the society on its flourishing condition, and calling upo them to continue their exertions in the cause. The Rev. W. \V. Evarti, of New York, then addrasse the meeting " On the moral dignity of the Moral Refon Enterprise," in a very eloquent speech, and was listens to throughout with the greatest attention. The reveren gentleman forcibly directed the attention of the meetin to the great claims this society had upon them, inasmuc as it was instituted to protect them, their wives, childrei and sisters from a set of beings who were worse than mu: derers?and particularly to protect those who csuld n< protect themselves?the poorer classes. The reveren Sentlemen cited several cases wherein the society h? one much good in rescuing the young and innocent. Another original hymn having been sung by the choi The Rev. E. T. Tatlok, of Boston, was announced t address the meeting on the subject of the " Exposures < Seamen on Land," but the subject escaped the gentlcmai and he scarcely ever touched upon it, to the evident disaj joint ment of a number of seamen wise were present, an who no doub* came for the express purpose of hearing th gentleman treat on this matter. An invitation was then given to such ladies present n were not member* of the Society to meet the cemmitte this d8y, at 3 o'clock, when they might have a better 0] portunity of understanding the proceedings aad objects < the Society. A collection was made on behalf of the Society, a bent diction offered, and the meeting broke up. The Kaatern New York Abolitionist*' meeting. These fanatics met at the Apollo Rooms in gret numbers yesterday forenoon. There were ver ? few negroes present, and the whole affair went o quietly and rather tamely. After prayer by Dr. Milnor, it vim announced that t the recording secretary of the society was not presen they would require tn elect another pro tem. Mr. B. V Oooilwin was then nominated to fill the office, and Mi Dresser to be assistant secretary. At this point of the pri ceedings, a Mr. Clarke got up and said that he had con posed some lines which he desired to sing far the edification; he also intended to compose appropriai music and nave it arranged to the words, and he doubts not that it would be sung in every family, and be found I aid their unanimity and zeal in this goou cause. After tb song, which was listened to with great Christian patienc the secretary read *he report, which occupied nearly a hour, and was, of course, too voluminous to insert. It set forth the position of New York, the great influent it exerted as the great emporium of the nation ; it glanct at the doings in Albany in relation to slavery movemen for past years, and denounced in nervous and punge language the conduct of political parties, both whigs an demccra'i; their dishonesty .their falseness and baseness 1 attending more to the fabrication of political capital out i this great cause, than for the sake of the great principl< it involved. The whigs were branded as open enemies the domocrats as false friends. They had got in the htal a number of ministers of religion, whose opposition to tb anti-slavery party showed that they were specially deli gated by the enemy of righteousness ta oppose and at noy this good cause A passage of the report is worth giving literally, I showing the very unenviable notoriety, and not at all d< sirable reputation of a publication or two, one of whir. ? sets up to be the greet gun of whig*, Kourierism, and ph losophy, and, as the devil would have it, according to th , following extract, no iriend to Liberty er fair play The report suys? " Tlio whig and democratic politicians are great ohsti clea to our progress. As able and energetic jiolitlcian* ? our nation commauds, arc within our bounds; and ever artifice, however base, is resorted to in order to defeat tb plans and efforts of the Abolitionists. The mostcontemp ihle and illiberal treatment has horn received from th Alnany Kvening Journal.' and (the " New York Tr limn- iin luurnai nil not to representing AJ) litionists a* connected with the Democratic party; an use their influence! to promote the election of their cand date* to office, while at the lame moment every Intrigi is re?ortcd to, to aednre the Abolitionists to vote for Whi eandidatea. As a aample of the low mean) of the " Jou nal" we give the following:? After the issuing of yoi circular by your correanonding aociety, in relation to tl immorality of Henry Clay, it became neceaaary to mal some ahow of'opjteaitlon. Among other expedient*, gentleman connected with the Whig pre** wrote a circ lar, of which the following ia a copy ? NoTicr.?A 'DiacLAiMaajMThe colored inhabitants tho city of Alhany wouldTake thia method of stating the public that they had no hand in getting up tho inl moua hand hill circulatod about town, calling a mei ing nt Centre market, and signed by Abel Brow and wholly discountenanced aid denounce the who proceeding, believing it calculated not only to I 'ore their cause, hut to inaligate riot, disorder, ai bloodshed. Let the sin, then, rest upon the man who h taken the responsibility of thus inflaming the puhl mind. We trust our colored brethren will refrain from i tending the meeting ' This circular was got up in hni lulls and handed about the city and published in the wh journals as the voice of the colored people. The Jllbn, Konitis Journal hat lately revived and published tf s ime old circular, nnd attempted to palm it off upon tl public a* the honest expression of the colored people | E NE M Albany, while it w?i written by a Whir writer for [the "( pre**, and without the knowledgeof hall a dozen of the eolored people in the city. he gcrupuloua and faithful ic this journal, that the account of the arrnat and trial of a free woman ai a alave, could find no place in 'It* column*, ha A auttlcient reason for thia muat, perhaps, be found in the .. tact that the Sheriff who arrested her, as a slave, was a ?' whig?the lawyers who joined hands with the woman- he hunters tor the sake of gain, were whig*?the judges on the bench were whig*. The falso and ungenerous attack J? on Mr. (toodwin a lew days back, is only equalled by the pc Journal's meanness in refusing to insert a reply. ' The Tribune commenced under promise* indicative of more honesty, lu agents appealed to a christian com- W munity fur support, under the solemn promise that it jjj would be open to freu discussion upon all questions of morality and political economy, and that nothing should be inserted in its columns of a pernicious influence on the (j| public mind. But what are the facts 7 A sample of its free discussion may be seen in their ungenerous, their un- m manly course, in relation to the proceedings of the Home la League Convention. The speech of Alvin Stewart, F.sq. was after repeated requests for insertion thrown under the table. A few months since the speech of the Hon. Cassius 10 M. Clay was mutilated, aud those parts approving of the gt liberty party rejected. Another evidence of free discus- til sion. The Junius tracts on Political Abolition, was pub- U( lished in that concern, and recommended by the editors ol the " Tribune." That tract was an open and violent apology for the continuance of American slavery : and was designed to corrupt and bewilder thu public mind, and cl bring it into harmonious support ol a slaveholder. The doctrine of the tract is fully,uttributable to the whig party. hi Numerous other artifices have been here plotted aud sus- S taineil by the editors of that sheet, such as the recommen- pt da ion and approval ol J C. Calhoun for the Secretaryship sj ?thu calumny poured on the principal abolitionists?the ^ support of a slavuocrat for the Tiesidency, Ike. Indeed, -yi the " Tribune" has done more to vitiate the moials ot the ., nation by its advocacy of one for thu liigheat office in ttie gift of the American people, who is an openly immoral w and vicious man. This departure from truth on the part of the " Tribune," should place it in public estimation at where it hos so long labored to placo its neighbor the w " Herald," to wit?where it shall merit the honest con- re dernnationof an outraged communityj(. When the ll'port was half read, Mr. Clarke get up and ' sang another song, but whether the key of the air was on m B flat or C natural, Mr C did not say. The secretary, '? considerably refreshed by the rest and music, again re- lV (turned the perusal of the report, but was again interrupted "> by a gentleman, who arose to congratulate the audience at - and himself that he was alive and kicking alter his mirac- hi ? ulous escape Irom an attack, which we understood him to ^ - say was on the day previous, at un annexation meeting a, J After very warm fehcitaiious on the part of the audience |J( , in many different ways, such as hems, oUps, cheers, kc. I the report was finished. It denounced H Clay, entered at . large into the details of the indictment against Abel " Browne for a libel on H Clay, Thurlow Weed, kc , in 8> ' which Clay was denounced a? a liar, gambler, awindler, cl man-stealer, robber and murderer. It announced the pro- it - gress of the abolition vote, in seme counties doubled, jc in some increased to the extent of eight fold.? ci t It recommended the employment of agents to disseminate f.( s the abolition tenets, the establishment of a Journal in this . city to he the chief organ of the party, and the adoption . of every means to bring about such a change that " liber ty " would not be an unmeaning word on the S1 .tute 1 J book. (Applause.) ' i Mr Ooodwks then said a few words about the it i objects ot their associ- i, in order that sum. % ho m i t a J not thoroughly uude 1 it, should be informed on e te > matter. A converse of rather a confused and unint l( f resting character, a! .t the disposal of the report took j place, which ended placing it on the table ns a "test ? book for the speukei " previous to committing it to tke ' business committee. ,l( The indefatigable Mr. Clarke here mounted tl latform ni and in Mganner which showed he was v. sang tl a a song about a "Blind Little Boy," by A U.iiley. Mr. 'f !" Clarke closed a sketch of the subject hi w 1 stating that he should compose an air. ai 1 the song set to music, that all might buy ai. every place ; and concluded with saying, " 1. 3 ace that the door is shut, and kept closed." J' J After the long, the President introduced Mr. Kiili.t, '* who said that he thought that he had a heart teo lull lor " 'I humanity, and was not unaccui-tomed to take an active o p part in puhlic affairs. lie saw a few days ago the meet- it 1 lng for the annexation of Texas?ho saw the irati'nld [r I- there erected, and men climbing up on it?the scrambling ? 1 of the crowd?the general disorder, and one man killed. 0 They had not humanity enr ugh to take the dying man up, suid two hours elapsed before he was taken care of '* ? (Sensation.) The next morning In saw those who were ' bearing him along staggering and reeling with intoxica- " d tion lie stepned forward and helped to convey him to s< e the hospital, lie would not dwell on the scenes of tuy mult observable at that meeting, at which some of the ' speakers were hardly able to get in a word. There was, d he was sorry to say, something ol that kind seen in that e house lately, and it gave him pain to say it It was e blamed on the liberty party, hut hoped they would not > see it to-day. He was sure it came from the same quar'er t > as the scenes he had noticed in the Tark, and that rhey 0 i- would have more of it. (Applause.) d Mr. Nevis, of Ohio, next addressed the meeting. He o v lelt that every right m.tided man would delight in joining H| n in any effort In aid ol our common humanity. Nothing v s- was more interesting for the.moralist as that cause which d had for its object thu improvement of the human species, d Mr. N. entered into a discussion of the prnclples or slave- 11 d ry ; held that it was untenable in morals ami indefensible K ? as on general grounds. lie attacked the mode adopted in ' lis defence, as a sort of special pleading by which he could n 1 with equal success support the most enormous crimes? fj d bigamy?(which by the way, Mr. N. said wax common in the south) duelling, aud even murder. In the Pfovi- _ >1 dence of (Jod an individual was visited with his displea- " n sure or the reverse, according to the principles that govern him ; and aw would this country and any other which c d supported slavery, be visited with God's curse. (Apn plause.) He contrasted the condition and standing ol the H d south with that of the north even at present, and showed si d that in every good work, noble institution, commercial ii g enternrize, mechanical skill, political talent, and above v h all, deep religious sentiment and sound principle, the 1, north was, beyond comparison, superior. He said that r when the mind becamo impregnated, with the accursed ^ >t doctrines of slavery, it was prone to' any vice and error; n d and secure against no(fallacy. The pro slavery man had v id no Arm position, and might be driven to any absurdity ; but that the elements of freedom were at work over the j( ir earth, and that great struggle which in Ireland, Scotland, , o and (over the earth, was heaving the bosom of society, ^ >1 would triumph as sure as there was truth and error, right (| i, and wrong. p Mr. Sioxr. was the next speaker. The question ol ), d slavery, lie thought, was a remarkubly besetting question. c ib (Laughter.) He was in Philadelphia lately, where he f, neard several sets of speeches on the annexation of Texus ^ is to this country, or rather the annexation of this cotintiy e to Texas. (Loud laughter ) The first meeting was rather t] p- opposed to the annexation of Texas ; but would rather t )f upon the whole, go for Texas than have any thing to do with the abolitionists ; in fact, it was not their wish to be ii- considered honest people ; but were like the members of Congress,if they had a word for liberty, a sentence for liu- f( slavery What could they think of men who heVl a tiling ? to ho good and had, right and wrong, who lived in a sort , of half way house called neutrality f Why they showed ? it themaelvea to be neither more nor less than n sort ol miildline proper Joalt (Loud laughter and applause)? . * Thuy talked about a territory that the best geographers ot fi the country knew little of, and the introduction of six (j States into the Union that would, as they said, he the means of ultimately abolishing slavery. Now such a re- , 11 mark coming lrom pro slavery- men, would go for aliout 5 what it was worth, and he looked upon it as a great joke. ( ' Thenext meeting he was nt, was something larger than that r- to which hospvke; 'it was an out and out Tyler meeting, ? 3 and the same honest miaous were assigned for the inea- , ? sure. The third was a Van Btiren meeting. They urged r as one of the strongest reasons (or the measure, that the ( slaves in the Southern States were making such wonder. f fill progress in making shoes,and even ships,thatjit became , ;o absolutely necossary to remove them to Texas to give the J ie good people of New England a chance to live (Laughter) ^ " Mr. 8. continued to describe the other meeting as about in is good an annexation one as the present. He censured the conduct of the Babtist Triennial Convention, which, y '* by a vote of 120 to 70, declared that they had no business 'd with the discussion of the question whether a slaveholder " was competent or not to the Miuistry; we might as well ' say the same of a thief who could exclaim, good (iod, or P good devil (laughter), and sail round the circle. Mr S r afforded great amusement, und was loudly applauded. d Mr. Baisatna was loudly called upon, and presented g ' himself; his speech was not long, but terse and energetic. y 'i He urged them to do their duty at the ballot nox, which y I? would he more effectual than all their preaching, praying, ie and moral suasion. He told a very pathetic case oi an aged ' slave, who ha<l nursed him and tendered his youthful 1 ? years; who, on his return to the south to emancipate his ' "laves, recognised him with most affectionate regard, and f ' inspired him to swear (if a solemn oath was in any cause " justifiable) by the eternal (foil, everlasting enmity against t b slavery. Mr B , in showing that he r/ould no further oc- |< cupy the time, announced another speaker, and turned , ie round with great energy of manner to tender his hand to f u bald clergyman, from Albany, who made a long address. This speaker, whosejnamu,we did not distinctly hear, ' ' made sonic capital points in his speech, which elicited ' is great aiipriib.ition He called upon tbe press to report the '< i' proceedings and have the courage to do good He put 1 ie them in mimlof theprou-l coti'iuestsol theAmeiicanKagle t- over the British Lion ; and invoked them by such gloie lions associations to wi|>e off the loul blot of slavery from i- tbe Union. He paid a high tribute of praise to Daniel o- Webster, denounced J. C. (.ulhonn, declared that a Moody j id Southern war was in embryo ; and that lmt for the bayII onet* cl the half-and-half men of the North, the colored ie people ef the South wotilJ right themselves. He besought ig them to watch well the coming election ; there were por litical devils and they were commanded to cost out devils, r (Laughter) Me said the people of the North were very r ie guilty : prayed them to come out like Mr. Brisbane and r te I Alvin Clay, and asiert the glory of the country. " a | Mr. Clskki. got up to sing another song | before he u ? rumniriiv/cu, ?whi? w? *? > |;iu|iuicn u l UIHTHUU IOT Others Mid it should be. deferred. Mr. Clako said c of lie was willing to proceed to accept the cash, and If ho c to thought that the song he was about to sing would increase J ra the money,he would spare no pains, hi hu had much want ' * of it. n, The meeting shortly after disperseil n.

Rockwell, m Broadu ay, under the Astor House, of about $15,DUO worth of jewelry, escaped . from the City Prison yesterday, about 1J o'clock, by pass- | ing out of the large gate on Franklin street, by the aid of the keys that belong to it, which were obtained from the cell where they were kept by some mysterious means yet unexplained. This is the first escape made since Mr. Fallon has been appointed keeper, and it is to be regretted that on the eve of his honorable retirement from oitice such a transaction such have transpired through the neglrct or misconduct of any of his deputy keepers, if II Is to be attributed to such a source. He has, as will ba seen by advertisement, ottered a reward of $100 lor his apprehension. We understand that Hoppy had made arrangements through his Counsel, with Justice Taylor and the District Attorney to deliver up a large amount ol the stolen proparty to Messrs Rockwell, on conditions of his ri lease, and that yesterday, the day he escaped, was the time fixed for such delivery. As soon as Justice Taylor ascertained that Hoppy had escaped, he repaired to the Lower Police, when Justice Pahsrm transitu red the examination he was about com. meneiDg into his charge, as Justice Taylor had been the committing magistrate in the case. The following is the substance of the testimony taken last evening : ? Malachi Fallen, keeper of the ptiton, testifies that the prison* r was committed on the 1 It Is of April, I8M, to tin: city prison on a charge oi grand lnireny and burglary, in eutering and robbing the jew elry store of the Messrs ltockwell, under the Aator House in Uroudway. On the 13th, a note was received Iroin Justice Taylor, requesting deponent not to admit any person to seu ih,- prisoner except otlicer GUbert flays and Mctlrsth ami wife of pri .oner These directions were given to K?uuri Kearnin, the Deputy keeper of the corridor, wno ban chutgc ol prisoner, but they were not strictly obeyed Deponent lias never known prironer to attempt any n;> arm ol escape but about half past ten o'clock on Tuesday nip' 1 Remind Conlsn, the nigbt watch came to deponent autieho whs in the rear of the prison on Elm-street and suid that he supposed that somebody had attempted to get in or out of the iron grating gate leading to the watch Louse, as u key was found broken in the lock. Deponent went lo the watch house and found a piece of a key in the lock but could net get it out The lock was taken off and a false key found in it which was broken off at the wards. The gate is accessible from tlie piison on the inside, and front the entrance to the watchhouse and street on the outside, and a person could have introduced their hands through the gratings of the door, whilo standing on the outsido. and opened it. Deponunt did not see prisoner this morn iug, but went down town on some business at 10 o'clock, and on his return about halt past 1 o'clock, lie ascertained that prisoner had escaped. Deponent has no knowledge of the manner in which prisoner escaped. Kearnin, one of the deputy kee|>crs, had rhaige ot the corridor on which the prisoner was confined. It was the duty of Kearnin to have remained at the city prison until 3 o'clock in the afternoon, but he has not been back since hall post 1 o'clock. Roiikrt Donneli., one of the deputy keepers, testified that he and Samuel Allen hud charge of the first or basement tier, and that lie was there until between half pasf 12 and 1 o'clock, when he went to dinner.

The cant heing the name as belore ; and having at the proper tune fully discussed the merits of music and execution, it only remains to nay that we found the name excellency and correctness which made it thr opera of the first season. Horghcse, who apjieared to be a little nervous during her sortita, recovered herself in the following duet, in which she displayed her wonted brilliancy and bravourr ; her recitatives were very emphatically given, and all her other pieces were delivered with an invariably fervid expression. The beautiful part of Edgaro, which is lull of earnest feeling and demands at the hands of the singer, something more than mere skill of vocalization, was uncommonly wull sustained by Perozzi, who never sung better than last evening, and proved himself fully equal to the required capacity fur expressing the varied emotions of deep yassion, particularly in the duct pitoiiu it itawt riwr, auu m m?r muwurt u vera Viitantt." Vttlielliua, who ha* yielded to the dictates ol common sense and sell interest, re-ajitwured before the public in lus role of Arturo. He was well received, and sung with his usual spirit and taste. The chorueses acquitted themselves verv well, hm well as the orchestra, barring an occasional dragging of time and roughness in the accompaniments. The next opera is the Puritani, in which Murium will make his debut as Riccardo, formerly in the hands of Ma|occhi. Amusements. Tux Pkt Theatre ol all others is now the Chat ham.
