NEW YORK HERAXD. New York, Monday, November 14, Ml. The Baropcan Hews. New* from Europe ' <tii a month Later than be fore received, may n< be uourly expected, the Britannia being over due at Boston. A Hint for tkc NewcBoyi:' A number of News-Boys behaved very impro perly yesterday in the uei&hborhood of this office, and gave considerable annoyance to persons look ing at the bulletin. We give them only one hint. If they do not behave themselves with strict pro priety, we shall prohibit the sale of any copies of the Herald to any News-Boy, and give the whole monopoly of supplying the public in this city to the regular carriers. The Kecent Election?Its various Results During the last week we have received a variety of returns from different parts of the country, suffi cient to enable us to ascertain that Polk and Dal las are elected over Clay and Frelinghuysen by a majority of nearly two to one of the electoral vote; and yet it is highly probable from the complexion of the returnswe have received,that it isby a minori ty of the popular vote throughout the country com pared with all the votes east against them. We have partial returns from the remotest ex trwi. ties of the republic?from Maine to Louisiana? and judging according to the best lights we have, we have constructed the following table, indica tive of the peculiar character of the election jutt passed, and the singular closeness of the contest:?

They may vary to some considerable extent the statements now presented in the table just given, but we doubt whether there will be any great variation so ns to change the aggregate character ol the general re Bult. It will be seen from these returns that although Mr. Polk is elected by a majority of nearly two to one over Mr. Clay, in the electoral vote, yet he will probably ba 15,000 of the populur vote behind the aggregate vote cast for Clay and Birney united. This would make him.what is strictly termed a " minority President." " Yet it is no less true, that even if the great State of New York had gone for Mr. Clay, Mr. Polk would have been elected with out it. For it is a singular fact that nearly the whole of the valley ol the Mississippi, with the exception of Kentucky and Ohio?under the immediate personal influence of Mr. Clay and his friends?has gone for Mr. Polk by a large popu lar majority. Then again in the Southern States, with the exception of North Carolina, all have been carried by Mr. Polk. In the central States, he only loses Maryland, Delaware and New Jer sey, while he carries with him New York and Pv '.asyr.'aniu. n?. .u. Engknd formation of States, although he is in the minority in the popular vote there. These results present an extraordinary state of facte, which will give rise to a variety of reflections in the mind of every independent man. One of the first things which strikes us is the glaring evidence thus presented to us of the mistaken confidence, the folly, the weakness, and the absurdities of the friends of Mr. Clay during the last summer and throughout the contest. They seemed to be utterly ignorant of their position during the who'e of the canvass; for it is a memorable fact, that one of the most popular of their journalists?Horace Greeley?actually estimated the vote of the State of New York at a majority of 20,000 for Mr. Clay, and this at a time when the contest was at its hot test, and the extraordinary formation and progress of the ?? liberty party" Blared him full in the face. That might have forced upon hun a very different conjecture. We are not surprised that fthe whig journal* throughout the country are lamenting w ith the extremity of pathos the defeat of Mr. C'ay, and wonderingwhat has caused it, and can scarcely real ize the fact that such a distinguished Btatcsrnan hits been def eated by such an obscure personage as Jas. K Polk of Tennessee. They must look upon their own arrogance, folly and absurdity, as the cause of this' humiliating defeat. During the last summer, when this journal, iiidependant as it was and is, of all ridiculous persona) or political influences,calmly and resolutely pointid out to the whig party their ^position, what was the return we received from these journals and these politicians? Why we were denounced with the extremes! violence a* being a lotofoco in disguise-as being purchased by the locoloco party?as being in the pay of the locofoco party, and as being actuated by mercenary motives in all our staten.entB ! Who has come out the most accurate and faithful in all his statements nov^l During the whole of that contest we fear lessly to!d the whigs, and told the whole country the position of things, and every thing has come out as we predicted. Mr. Clay?one of the most distinguished men that this country has yet pro duced?although he may have some defects ol character?has been defeated by the folly, the ar rogance, and impudence of his own friends and hi? own party. He hat been dettroyed by whig journal urn?by turh journal itm at you find in Mr New York Tribune, the New York Courier and Enquirer, the Boston Atlas, the Richmond Whig, the Louisville Journal, and the Albany Evening Journal-papers with a greater disregard of truth, justice, honesty and moderation than these, never existed. Now they are weeping aud wailing and gnashing their teeth. But they have doue the deed. 1 heir lamentations are vain and futile. With the returns of this contest before them? with all the evidences of their folly before them how are these journalists now eugaged ? Instead of extracting wisdom from the folly of the past, they are beginning already to peipetuate fresh ab surdities, and to commit new follies. In the nudat of a prosperity that will Mt tl|P Khemrfl o| trading politicians at defiance, and lay all panic makers on their backs, they are striving to get up a panic in business, and to proscribe the poorer clantes of society because ihey exercised thrir right of suffrage as they chose ? Some are for repealing the naturalization laws, because a portion of the naturalized citizens voted' against them ; others are for all species of proscrip tion against those who opposed them. We nee indeed, on all hands, amongst these whig journal ists, the same folly, the same absurdity, the same falsehood, the same licentiousness which led to their late deieat, and which must inevitably lead to similar disastrous results hereafter. The victo ry of the democracy has been won by the skin of its teeth, yet we doubt whether the whigs can avail themselves of their singular position and strong forces to recover power iq 1848 ?

One of the most uurioua that we have recently, seem is that exer cised against one Lewis Chamberlain who keepB a barber's shop in Broadway. It seems that like all other barbers, he has his shop open on Sunday lor the accommodation of the public, and on one occasion he happened to sell a tooth-brush or some such fifty-cent article. For this heinous offence against the corporation laws he was fined two dol lars for selling goods on Sunday, and took the re ceipt as follows:? 0oooeoooooooooooooooooooo0 ? New Yohk, June 13th, 1844. ? o No *?? o lieceivrd of Lewi* Chamberlain the lum of " two dollars in settlement ol complaint against ? him for a violation of a Corporation Ordinance ? ? iu selling goods on a Sunder. 2 " S.

On another occasion his awning happened to be 1 few inches beyond the limit prescribed, and he was fined two dollais and an half for that gross violation of the law,for which he received the fol lowing receipt ()0.0 00000000000000000000000 o Nxw Yobk, Sept. 18, 1844. ? ? No. 619. 0 Received of L Chamberlain the sum of two ? dollars and fllty cents in settlement of com- ? plaint against him for ? violation of a Curpo ration Ordinance, in encumbering walk with ? the wing of an awning. Sept. 13 0 ? S. SAMMONS, ? 0 $2 60 Corporation Attorney. ? ?oooooooooooooooooooooooc? It seems this is a very profitable business for the corporation officials. One of the receipts, as, we perceive, numbers " 220,' and the other "519," and we have seen others as high as nearly "1000.' There must, it is clear, be a very pretty penny made by carrying these ordinances into operation. The "dim ui 11 10, mm (milieu 141 IwlltMoala urrn, be singled out as objects of annoyance and fine, whilst others, guilty of permitting the greatest nuisances, are allowed to go scot free. Thus, in many of the streets, large heaps of oyster-shells, and ashes, and other filthy obstructions are allow ed to remain in front ef cellars and houses, without the slightest attention being paid to complaints against those who commit the nuisance. It would be much more to the credit of these corporation officials if, instead of pouncing upon poor barbers lor selling a tooth-brush on a Sunday, they would remove from the public streets the accumulated filth of three or four months. The Catholics of Boston and their Organs. ?Wk perceive that a meeting of the Catholics of Boston was held the other day, for the purpose of repudiating an article which appeared in a paper called the Pilot generally regarded as their organ, and which had ' < i "/lgerly seized upon and turn ed to their disadvantage by the whig party in that city. It was attempted to be shown by the Boiton Courier, from the article in question, that the Iiieh 'Jatholics did not love America, and that they voted just as their priests directed them. The first of these assertions is utterly ridiculous. Iu no country under hi aven is there so general and deep regard for every thing American as in Ireland. In almost every family there 19 a sympathy for Ame rica, arising from the tenderest associations con nected with relatives who have adopted this coun try as their home, and also from that ardent love for liberty aud free institutions which is so charac teristic of the Irish heart. As for the influence of the Catholic priesthood in this country over the political action of their people, it is about equal to that exercised by any other clergy. In some rare instances?sudi as that of Bishop Hughes?the priests may have attempted to control the political opinions of their flocks; but that game in not likely to be related hereafter, and the very indignant terms in which the Boston Catholics disclaim the imputation alleged against them, will be re-echoed by all their intelligent countrymen throughout the Union. Michigan Election.?The majority for Polk will be a'jout 3,300, purchance a little,over. The democratic candidates for Congress are all elect ed 1 McClclUnd, Hunt and Chlpman. The demo crate have carried every senatorial district, choos ing the whole nine senators elect, which will make that branch of the legislature unanimously demo cratic for the next year. As far as heard from, forty-one democrats and four whigs are elected to the House of Representatives. Districts which elflct eight representatives are to be heard from, which may give the whiga three or four more. From Grenada.?The Star, Captain IV'-rson, atrived Inst night, bringing accounts to the HJ ult. We learn that an arrangement haa been entered into with the Governor of Rio Hsche, to permit vessels to lay at that port ten days, provided thev do not land any part of their cargoes. Masters of vessels are required to have a correct manifest of every article on board, and any neglect to comply wiih thi* requisition, even in the minutest particu lar, renders the vessel liable to full port-charges, and hUo to seizure. From St. Jauo.?By the arrival of the Curlew, Cdpt. Crowell, we have received later intelligence. The disastrous gale of the ?'>th and flth ult., passed over St. J ago without doing any damage. Accounts trom Trinidad state that several houses had been blown down at that place, and that the shipping in the port sustained considerable injury. The crops, also, suffered much. Produce of all kinds was very scarce ; freights low, and business dull. The American Consul died on the 6th October. From Malaoa.?By the John Brewer, Capt. Far ren, arrived yesterday from Malaga, we have a few days later intelligence. The IT. S. vessels which were expected there to aid in raising the steamer Missour.' from her present position, had not arrived, but were hourly looked for at Gibraltar. Indian Summer.?Yesterday wan one of the loveliest days we have ever experienced. mmmmrnamfrimmmmmmamJvm?Mag-JLJ_.iJi.jaj Or. W?'? tiMtnr* Uitnlfhi ?* "H< W*i*f *? on tins Invocation df the St. Peter's was densely crowded last night* and probably one-third of the audience consisted ol Protestants Tiiis wan greatly owing to the publica tion in the Herald of the Doctor's introductory lecture, which excited universal interett. The subject of lbs lecture last night til the " Invoca tiou of the Saints," tlic text being that passage in Paul'* Kpistle to the CorintbUns, in which he exhorts them as " wi?f men," to " floe from idols." Dr. Pise began by saying that it wa? his intmtion to appeal from the daci lion of the late Episcopal Convention in Philadelphia, which accused Catholics ol idolatry In addre??lng their prayers to tne Saints?he would appeal to the wisdom and candor of his audience?to the history of the ?ast?to the primitive fathers of the church?and more loipoitant and higher than the Holy Scriptures. The church of llome, he maintained, had universally warned and exhorted the faithful again.t the tin of idolatry, and had affixed to that sin the severest penalties. In discus sing the subject of the Invocation of Saints, he would en deavor to answertwo questions-and that first, what that invocation was not?and secondly, what it was. In the invocition of Saints, Catholics did not mem, as was falsely asserted by some, to elevate the Saints into dtmi gods,to clothe them with the attribute* of deity TheSainU were merely creatures, and possessed only the ordinary attributes of humanity, lu order to show what was meant by proving to thorn, he referred te the csterhism of the Council of Trent, as trinslated by Profenar D -novnn, of the Royal College ol Maynooth, and read the passage bearing ou thia point, in which it is declared that to (KmI alone is the prayer tf the lalthful addressed tor the bless ings which bo has promised, whilst the saint* were merely entreated to intercede with Gwl iu support ol thole prayers Then Dr. Pi*e went on to answer the questions ?" Can tha saints hear u.tP' and, secondly, " It no, doe* prajer to tln-m for their intercession derogate from the mediation of Jesus Christ?" That the Saints cannot hear the prayers of the faithful he asserted was utterly in-apable of proof- that they do hear them, was capable demonstration This he then endeavored to show from the fact that the prophets ?* ?W uwalilxd. by special manifestations ol divine favor,to know not only what was to come to pa*s long after their death, but what wi*i trans piring at a irstance from thein wliiut they were on earth. Ha lust need several instances of this, and then passed on to the paiable of the richaan, who in torment b.lield Lazarus in Abraham's bosom. and called on Abraham to send someone to relieve him, asnBiirding eviJonce that the Saints knew what was going in on earth, and could be properly addressed in prayer. 1 hen he went onto argue that as the devil was possessed the power of going about all aver the earth, and tempting every owe, why could not the Saints be fitted with the uower of hearing the faithful and ministering to them?? Dr. P. next went on to vindicate the mac*ice of invoking the S?iuts from the charge of depreciation Ol the inter cession of Christ. Ho contended that tho prayors of the Saints only were askod for, and just in tho same way as were those of the faithful on earth, and concluded by quotiug passages fioiu the fathers iu vindication or the practice. We understood Dr. Pise to intimate that he would resume the argument on next Sunday eve ning. Divine Service at St, John's Cliurcli on 1 cs terday?Large and Pashlonabls Congrega tion?Good Clergyman?Good Text, and Good Preaching. A highly fashionable congregation attended di viue service at this Church on yesterday. The Church is one of those religious edifices mthis city, built upon a model and style of architecture which has given so high a reputation to our city for its public buildings. The exterior af this beautiful edifice is bold and majestic?of pure Gothic construction?and stands out, when viewed in the distance, amongst the groupes of our noble public buildings, a conspicu ous and attractive object for the admiration ol the tourist. The interior is chaste and simple?built upon the model of St. Paul's. Five pillars at either side sapport the galleries. The pulpit is placed in front, and a superb organ?which, during the ser vice, lent its rich and powerful tones?with an ex cellent accompaniment fram the orchestra gave much effect to the ceremony. The en trance of the building is fitted up in a style of costly magnificence, though of extremely simple design, which showed the immense wealth of the corporation under whose auspiceB and control it was first projected and now flourishes.' The congregation is highly fashionable, and the services accord with the doctrines ol the Epibcopa lian Protestant form of worship, being a branch of the Trinity Church congregation. Dr Wainwright presides over the congregation, tmd his high and acknowledged reputation ns a good clergymen? aim dir. pun (?iiii??uv|7 .i>w viiw. ;.j ?u- ?? . and impressive discourse delivered by him, breathed more of the pure spirit of the gospel, and of that meek compliance with those solemn injunctions laid down by our Divine Master, and inculcating chari ty, which should characterize every sect of Chris tains, than any we have latterly heard. The Rev. Doctor took his stand upon the broad platform of revealed Christianity, and while he held that man, endowed with reaaonj and gifted with free-will, was generally the architect of his own spiritual distresses, he did not take that narrow-minded or sectarian view which many of our modern preach ers adhere to, ?nd such as would close the doors of salvation in the face of those who do not belong to their congregation. The Rev. Dr. Waiuwright, after the delivery of the service, preached a very excellent Sermon, Taking his t<xt from 6th chap of Hosca, v. 4. O Ephrai m, what ahull I do unt > thee ? 0 Judith, what shall I do uiUo thee I for your foodiuti it an a meriting cloud, and ut the early dtw it goe h away. Concerning the Jews en h people the words of the gospel were spoken, nod notwithstanding ah tU>< manifes tations of God's power a^d all the tokens of hi* loving ^oodnots towards tha Jews, still they w re never grate iul. They were constantly drawn into the idolatries of the surrounding nations, and never were grateful to the Lord. Some ?t them might have felt a transitory tion of relig.ous awe and leverence for their God i but it was like the morning light that passoth away, or like the morning cloud which tinged the eastern skie* and passed tlittingly|away, leaving no trace behind, or like the early new cf the morning that blowetli away before the breath of the passing breoru. There was much instability and inconstancy in religion in the present day, and law con formed ta the precepts ot the focpil. Many, however, made frequent resolves to change their habits and modes of life and lead u life of religion ; but it was like the Jews of old, it was transitory and evanescent, and they still peisistad in pui*uirg tho wrong. When arrested by the land ol sickness and thrown upon tha couoh of the sick man, they would then feci remorse ; but alter health r> turned, their pious resolves faded with the glory of the morning sun, and they would relapse not their firmer errors?and such were the early Jews Every ona who heard him should acknowledge that this wai tha prevailing error in every Christian community. The aid ?f tho intellectual powers was essential to advance t';ieint?iests uf true religion ; and the affections must ga ther round in order to produce the change which is re quisite in thuse characters which are maiked by instabil ity in religion. Sometimes there were fits of penitence and wild starts of devotion ; but ther was no deep, no abidiug constancy of devotion?no dependence upon their eoarsa, to compel them to continue In the paths they had just entered. There was no stability to ho found amougst | such men?and the luvool' their God passelh away ; the bnds ware put forth?but they did not tome to mutufity. j Self-denial was th"> great source of thev religions ; and unless men possessed tho gift of self-dcnisl, tliey could not have true religion in theii hesrtr. When the bright and beauteous beams of the sun shone forth and illumina ted the universe?when the worldly affairs of man went well with him?an 1 the truths of the Gorpel appeared to give a transl ory gli am of comfort to his spirit, which passed away with tho breath of the morning, it waa not then that he should stand forth, but it was when the clouds and storm threatened destruction, that man was bound to stand firth, and so in relation to their religion The Saviour dwelt much onthu neccsaity of self-denial in preaching to hi? disciples, and it was the chief road to salvation. Th? Rev'd. Dr. after delivering a very impres sive discourse, concluded, whea the congrfgation separated. Italian Opera -The Italian Opera re-opens po sitively this evening, ut Palmo's, with a new and most brilliant opera, in which the two principal roles will be filled by Signora Pico and Signor Sanqnirico. The opera was originally composed by Ricci, for Pasta, in order to display her striking and brilliant peculiarities. Pasta's voice was a m>.'ZZ9-8oprano, somewhat contralto, of a quality like that of Signora Pico; and we have no doubt this evening's entertainment will be delicious. The brilliancy of the house itself will be one of the features of this opening. On such nn occasion all the ilitt of the city will be there, and the scene will be radiant with beauty and fashion. Historical Society.?The fortieth anniversary of this interesting and respectable body will be celebrated on Wednesday next. There is to be a procession nnd an oration in the afternoon, and a grand dinner in the evening, at the "New York Hotel," up town. John Q. Adams has signified his intention of being present, and the occasion will bring together many of our literati. There is a good deal of anxiety, also, to learn something of the ruitine of the new caravansary at the west end, so that the whole afl'air will be very interesting. Foreign Mails.?The steamship Hibernia left Boston on .Saturday for Liverpool with forty-one pavengers and a large mail. flfvnmm MtH-BMif SMMy RlgtUti'ibee. tare rMterdftjr~Wfcat ttod Can and Cannot CrcnU?Love, Ui? true Heaven, both Here and Hereafter, The rejected Elder of the Mormons ofNauvoo, once one of their most powerful leaden, lion been tor the past week in thia city and neighborhood, giving lectures on the Mormon faith, with the ob ject of getting up a church and aect entirely on his own hook. The place appointed for the delivery of hi* lecture yesterday was the large room of the "Deutsche^ Bierhouse,"at the junction of Houston and First streets, near avenue A, where the Native American party of the 17th ward have of late held their meetings, and where many Germans resident in the neighborhood frequently assemble to have their singing parties. The emblems of the other different occupants of the room hung around, and gave it a somewhat singular or unusual appearance for a place of worship. About the time mentioned lor tlie delivery of the lecture, half-past ten o'clock, there were assembled three old ladies, two younger ones, three little girls, ten male adults, and one little boy; these were afterwards increased by about as many more at the close of the service. It was near upon eleven o'clock ere the Elder, accom panied by a friend, made his appearance. He is a tall, stout, elderly, gentlemanly looking man, apparently about sixty years ol age, hollow

mouthed, having lost his front teeth. His delivery is rather indistinct and low, and very rapid; at other times quite as loud, rais ing his voice to the highest pitch. He is evidently a person but of limited education', one at least that despises the common form by which such as this is generally'denoted; very disjointed in his matter, so as almost to defy knowing what particular ob ject his subject had reference to. He used his left hand us il he was pumping violently, every now and then assiiting with the light; and hitting the dettk so violently with one cr both as to make eve ry thing on it spring upwards to a considerable height, and keeping tho3o near him from napping if inclined. Having nioutUcJ tho rojlrum at the lower end of the room, in company with the person with whom he entered, and another, the latter read a hyma in such astyle, that it sounded as if he was on horsebeck, going at an ambling pace ; this was sung to one oi those tunes which was so popular mnong the different political parties during the re cent election in thia city, principnlly by the Elder's companion, who made up for any want of sweet ness ol voice by strength of lungs. This was suc ceeded by a brief rambling extemporaneous prayer by the Bame person, chiefly consisting of various texts of scripture, dovetailed into one another, in many instances, not with the best possible taste or judgement. Alter this,Elder lligdon stood up and announced that the subject of his address would be found bb follows "Jind (lit father of circumcision to tliem who are not of Iht circumcision only, hut who aho walk in the tle)>i of that faith of o-r father Abraham which he hail, bting yet uncir cumcised," #c. Rom. v. 12?46, included There never wai before or since the day* ol St. Taul a person ao amply able to diacuas the great and important principles laid down iu the words Just read, as tit. ran) himself. There was never a man of such extensive know ledge, familiar with all the subjects which was necessary to have a correct view of the religion of heaven ; or one that could so well imprint thia knowledge on the mind ot his fellow man. He was not alone content wi h the mere matter of fact, but sought to carry the mind back as far as the human mind was capable of going-as far as human intelligence was possible to be led. In his attempt to do this he led man to contemplate as far back as the very be ginning of all things?even to meditate upon what existed belore this worl 1 was created?the plans upon whioh the kingdom of heaven was base) On this question no one ever gave uh as much information as Paul aid?no, not one. It is true that some of the other Apostles informs us of their natural acquaintance with heaven, but St. Paul received bit information diiectly from the Lord himself? the only true aource from which such knowledge could come. In the days of 8t. Paul thure existed a very singular controversy in the world which gave rise to the words ol (lie t<xt. The Jews had a notion, which 1 believe many of them have at the present time, as the descendants of A bra. Iiam. that they were theonly race hat would enjoy salva tion-that they were the rightful heirs to all things on hereafter, it ?... u.. point thk?t B. jPaul contested iv/ith them. Now much on this mibject may be traced in the writings and doings oi some of the other Apostles, but it was Paul; alone who could elucidate tue'matter. Now, the words of the test clearly said, particularly in the 13th verse, " For the wo mi?o that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham or his seed, through tho law, but through the righteousness of faith." Now it was clear that all would inherit this salvation that was looked for by the (Jews that this Salvation did not arise oui of good works, or was' ot a lineal descent, but consisted of luith in the Lord Jesus ' hrist. No man ever was orever could bo saved by works i f righteousness, nor by the offerings of bulls, /oats or any thing elae, or by lineal descent from Abraham, Mose* or any of the patriarchs that ever existed, or ever would exist. Paul himtelf once had the same notion as the Jews; but he hail a vision of heaven which cleared his eyes. Now thia difficulty existed with the Jew* whe ther they could this salvation as the seed ofAbra ham, or whether it wes necessery for them to turn to Christ to obtain it. It was to show them the latter that caused Paul to write thu Eplstlt from which the text was taken?to show them that all, no matter of what seed generation, tiibe, or a?ct, if they had faith in the Lord Jesus, thty would inherit this salvation. This was bringing th : point to it* legitimate issue, and iu doing so gjos back to tho very foundation of the notion that it was handed down by descent to tho end of time. Paul shewed that it could not be handed ('own by the Priest, bood, lor they required sacrifices lor their own sins? there.ore, they could not give it to others ; oven Abra hum could not receive it from Meichiza.'.eck the Priest then hcv whs it possible for salvation to come from Abra ham by descent, and snvethem/ It was Paul's object to get tiiem to fix their minds on a few unchangeable truths Ho went tiack and showed what man got by this belie! from the beginning of life to the close ot it, when he win laid in the silent tomb, and he evidenced that it was the design of Ood, from the very foundation of the of the world, to save nil men by tho sacrifice of bis Son Now a very curious question aroie out ol this which i am Inclined to a<k and that was-what Ood himself could do for the salvation of the world Now it is evident that every thing was intended for this salvation, and all that Ood could, can, or will do, was for this purpose He formed man like himself, and set him in this world not to be destroyed but to be saved ; it appears evident to me that Ood could not carry Adam farther than where he placed him, and then what could Adam do towards his own salvation was another question. I now wish to say something of creative power. What was it ? It la im possible to malto nothing out of nothing?we had no ac count of it?it was the formation of matter, and endowing it with apirit, and bringing them up together. This was the key to unlock the whrle of the matter-tb? making of spirit and matter subservient to each other. Now what did philosophy teach us on this subject 7 Ood could not make himself out of nothing, no could he exist wi>h out creative power. What created Ood would go on creating other spirits, therefore it was impossible that creative power could exist independent of salvation vlatter and spirit were in their very natures ao opposej to each other, and if these alone existed in heaven i? would not be a very good place; and if they existed alone on earth, it would be a still worse world. Now what was it that made tho most harmony in this world 1 It was the ties which bind man to mur The object ol heaven wv.s to put things together and bind them in har mony. Now I want to to Ik of heaven a great deal, and 1 will aay something of it Even if Jehovah did make things out of nothing, it would not make the slightest difference : it would be no more than one of you makint a mill Salvation was the objcct of it, to save us at last That there is a necessity for sin, to all who studied the matter, it muitbe evident ; and Paul himself says. Where sin is, there grace much more abounds " The truth ol this I wish you to leel as I have done. Kv'ery one tha comes on this earth come* alike. There is not one particle of difference in u* ; and we ar? af erward?, in u great degree, formed by the circumatancea by which we are surrounded. Now let us see what are these circum stances Let us look at the conduct of the fsther and mother when their first born is plsced in their arm* ; what ii thia emotion?ae* how they hoar it toth?*ir kCn,ii' " 4 y k*' a" ir *"the Pow?''* of hell snd earth should not separate them ; yet. thia feeling did not exist a few minutes before. What a change is this that circum. ?tance has made our nature. Now what is it that makes human Wings happy-it was in loving and bekg loveJ loving as Ood loved his only son. It was of thif that the Kingdom ol Ood.wes formed-one of his principal com mands was "to love the Lord thy Ood with all your sou I and thy neighbor as thy self" Love was heaven-hatred wai hen-one brought all happiness-the other misery an.l death Then what is to become of salvation 7 The government of heaven was very similar to that of earth in that which makes man happy. To do tbis he will suf fer more than what ten thousand scourges would inflict On i. previous occasion I have told you what our natural relations would do far us, and to test thematter 1 will onlv ask parents who have lost their dearest offsprings if thev have even forgotten them ? No. What would mist of lis aive to take by the hand a departed father or a learest mother. II you had ?ny other feeling yon would be worse than the brutes that perish, and Oo<t never intended to make you such-or that heaven should ever he occupied with such persons. No, if such was the ease, I for one have no wish to go to such a niece N ijv let ns look a little further back to those who origi" "ally existed ; and we find them to be the Father, Son and Holy Ohost or Spirit. Now, what was the Katbsr' My ohja t has b?en to show that he was the Creator und *o M.ow what be could no' do ; also that sin could nover <iamn a man. Muo coulJ only understand these tlunes ns he saw nnd felt. It was through the suffering of the Son ol Ood, that he reached the high position he holds in heaven, and it was by suffering he went to his eternal home ; and we must suffer in a somew. at similar way to enjoy tha like felicity and have every faith in Christ Sin must come in the world to perftct our salvation and one cannot come without the other: Ood cannot bring ^out without If. If Oo<i|brought Adam on Hiis earth a sinful creature, he would not have the power to check it ( there/are, Christ said he would da it by stiff ring for man, and did suffer as man nsvar stiff iired belore or since.

Agreeably to an anonymous announcement in some of the papers, a meeting of a few of the me dical gentlemen of this city took place at the Hos pital, on Saturday last, for the purpose of adopting appropriate measures for the erection of a monu ment to the memory of the late Dr. Forry, the learned and philosophic author of the treatise on the "Clima'e of the United States." Dr. Kbawci* occupied the chair, and Dr. Griacom oftt. ciated an Secretary. , , . ... The Chaisman, alter the meeting had been called to order, aaid :-Oentlemen : Thiameeting ha* had it* origin in the private coaaultatlon of a few friend* of the late Dr. Ferry, who regarded hi* eminent *ervice* in the cau*e ot m.tdical scieuce a* worthy of ?ome lasting and grate ful memorial. You are all, I believe, well acquainted with bia extraordinary merit* He died young,but tew nave left a greater legacy behind. Hi* remarkable industry and research, together with peculiar intellectual talent*,ena bled him to devote hirself with aignel aucce* to a depart ment of medical icience of va*t importance to the whole world. Hi* woikonthe olimate ot thia country i* an inva luable accauioa to eur literature On hia character a* a man, it is not necessary ior me to dwell It wa* worthy of tbe *incere*t regard of all who can appreciate the modesty of true ganiu* and the excellence of virtue. It i* indeed our du y to give some cuitable testimonial of our ie*ptct t ?r our departed friend, and our aense ol hia eminent ser* vice* in the oauae of sci.uce and htimanity. 1 shall be happy to hear the luggeition* of uny of the gentlemen preaent relative to the manner in which our view* can be best carried out. Dr. Hosack then read a paper wnich had been pre viously diawn up, containing resolutions to the effect that the member* ef the profession be requested to wear c ape far thirty day*?that a gentleman be selected to uronounco an eulogium on the character and labor* of hi. Kony?and that a committee be appointed to effect The erection of a monument to hia memory in Greenwood Cemetery. , , , These resolutions were put and carried. Several gen tleman were named a* qualified to pronounee the eulo gium : but the (election of the perion waa deferred. It wa* then moved that a committee of five be appointed on the erection of the monument The Chairman suggested that the number wa* too amall. _ _ A gentleman (a particular friend of the late Dr. t oiTy) than suggested that, in order to effect the desired object with as much expedition, and in as satisfactory a manner a* poMible, the committee should consist oi the profes sional gentlemen present (only a dozen) with power to add to their number. The larger the committee, the more honorable it would be to the departed, a* well as more satisfactory to the profession at large. The Chairma* wea In favor of the suggestion. Dr. Ricita?Oh! no. What is every t>odj '* business I* nobody's business. Tbe committee must be amall. It wea finally agreed that tbe Committee should conaict of nine, and the peraons to compoae it were then *e lected, consisting of the medicel atiendjnts of the Hospi tal, and oneortwo others. It wa* then luggrated by Dr. Detmold that thia Com mittee should report progres* at a subsequent meeting, to which the profession generally would be invited. Dr Rkk* wa* opposed entirely to the suggestion of Dr. ^^Jr^HousTora concurred with Dr. Detmold, and sup posed that, a* a matter of course, the Committee would report at their earliest convenience, at a public meeting. It apoeared to him that every i>ossible facility should be afforded for procuring a very general co operation in the proposed work. He was a* alow to know what rational objection could be urged egain*t the usual course of pro cedure. It would be at least onlv discovering due refprct to the feeling* and judgment of the numeroua friend* of Dr. Forry to *ubmit to them the plan proposed for the erection of a monument to his memory, before thev would be called on to contribute toward* it. The tmall nesa of the present meeting wa* an additional reason for calling another at a suitable time in order to hear the re port of the committee. Several oi the gentlemen of the committee, whoae name* we did not leain, were quite opposed to thi* It would not do-it would defeat their objeot?they mu*t be left quite untrammelled?*urely the matter might be aalely Uft to the discretion of the Committee. It wa* then moved by one of the Committee, and se conded by mother, that the whole bnaiutra be left en tirely to them. The resolution wa* put and carried, and the meeting adjourned. It is to be regretted that the usual secret, bung ling and miserable machinery of a petty clique, whioh has hitherto rhsracterized every movement of the medical profession in this city, was not dis pensed with on an occasion like the present. Had the meeting been got up properly, it would have been large and respectable in every sense ol the term, and the committee appointed to carry into effect the praiseworthy design of perpetuating the name and labore of Dr. Forry, by a suitable monu ment, W'juld have embraced the names of all the distinguished professional men in the city, instead of consisting of a few, who, in consequence of ap pearing to their brethren in the character of a little self-constituted clique, will not be so likely to carry out their object in a satisfactory manner. Profes sional jealousy had surely little to fear in permit ?ing a general and liberal expression of esteem lor 'he elevated character and distinguished services of a dead brother. It is due to the distinguished tnd liberal-minded physician who presided at this ?neeting, that he discovered himself to be free from the narrow and selfish views of the majority of the individual who were present. The PKDr.sTRiAN Contest.?The footrace which is expected to take place to-day, weather permit ting, uppearsto be the &ll-excitiug subject at pre sent; the sporting class of both countries taking a ^reat interest in it. It is said that the two pede. ? trians from England have greatly improved since -.he last race, and that it will not be at all surpris ing if they should be more successful on this occa sion than on the former. They are, when in good condition, thought to be two of the beBt pedestrians in England, having followed the business for years past. Gildersleeve has never ran but two races in public, and could, without doubt, much improve ay lengtraining; it will, however, require great strength and endurance to beat him. For the benefit of our readers who may not have received our paper yesterday, we repeat the sub stance of the arrangements made torfctheloccasion: The first race to take place is a race of three mtlrs lor a purse of #200?#50 to the second in the race. This race will take place at half-past one o'clock, at which time the pedestrians must be ready at the ringing of the bell. For this race, the following persons have entered to start:?William Fowl, J. P. Taylor, Ely Parker, Thomas Green halgh, Stephen Morgan, Wm. Carles, Edward Brown, Lewis Edwards, Ambrose Jackson, John Steeprock. Out of these some six or seven are certain to start for it "There is very little doing in the bet ting way on this race ; the field is the favorite 100 to 75 : 50 to 100 on Greenhalgh, if he goes for it; :I0 to 100 on lily Parker, the Indian, and the same un Win. Fowl and Ambrose Jackson ; the latter and the Indian against the field ; or Greenhalgh ?tnd the Indians, with the previous proviso as re spects the former: 5 to 1 taken on the Indian igainst the the field ; 100 to 75 t!;c three mi let is done within !i0 minutes ; 2 to 1 it is not done in 15 minutes. The second race is for a purse of $1200, to run ten miles, for which the following persons have entered tneir names to start No. 1?John Gildersleeve. 3?John Birlow, ) The two pedestrian*, late 3-Thomas Greenhalgh, J from England. 4-J.P. Taylor, No. 8-Thoma* McCabe, 6-John Underbill, 9-J. L T. Smith, 6-Wm. Carle*, 10-Thoma* Hyan, 7?Jame* Uradley, 11?John Steeprock, Indian. In addition to these, there is one name omitted, that of Thomas Jackson. This race will take place at half past 2 o'clock . For this race about eight, perhaps nine will start?the field is the favorite at about pre vious odds; Gildersleeve and Harlow were against each other,with a considerable number of bnckert; five to one offered, to be taken on Steeprock against the field; eight to one, against any other*. Among the outsiders McCabe, Corles. and Taylor appear to have the advantage in the betting as to taking one of the pri7.*s ; ten to two the ten miles is not done in filtv-three minute*; ten to three it is not done in fifty-four, ami t?.n to four it is not done tn fifty-five; even it is done within 57$. Various ugly rumors have been afloat for the last day or two, but we believe without any foundation. We judge as we hope, that the best man will win?So be it The pedestrians will be distinguished by their se veral numbers, which must be worn in a conspicu ous place?to start at the tap of the bell. At every three minutes from the start, the bell will be struck as follows i?Three times when the pedestriM should be at the half mile, and six times nl the mile, allowing each mile to be done in six minutes. Each pedestrian will be allowed two persons to assist them while running. Mimical T?f.~Rvmi ib the throM ?m1 tgooiiw of' defeat, the poetictl inspiration does not deaert the whigs, and the loeofoco minstrels are more lively than ever. We have seen a number of effu sion* on both sides siace the termination of the great conflict, some of them pretty good, and other* nther indifferent. The bett we have seen are the following?the first from the whig muse, the other from the locofoco:? He la not Fallen. Not fallen ! No! as well the tall And pillared Allegheny fall? Ai well Ohio's giant's tide Roll backward on Its mighty track, As he, Columbia's hope sua pride. The slandered and the sorely tried, In his triumphant course turn back. He is not fsllen ! Seek to bind The cbainless and unbidden wind ; Oppose the torrent's headlong course, And turn aside the whirlwind's force ; But deem ye not the mighty mbid Will oower before the blast of hate. Or quail at dark and causeless ill; For though all else be desolate, It stoops not from its high estate? A Marias 'mid the ruin still. He is not fallen ! Every breeze That wanders o'er Columbia's bosom, From wild Penobscot's forest trees, From ocean's shore, from inlaid seas, Orwhetethe rich Nlagnslia's blossom Floats, snow-like, on the sultry wind, Is bearing onward to his ear, A homage to his lofty mind? A meed the fallen never find, A praise which patriots only hear. Star of the West! A million eye* Are turning gladly onto him ; The shrine of old idolatries Before his kindling light grow dim '. And men awake as lrom a dream, Or meteors dazsling to betray; And bow before his purer beam, The earnest of a better day. All hail! The hour is hastening on When, vainly tried by Slander** flame, Columbia nhsll behold her son Unhaimed without a laurel gone, As from the dimes of Babylon The angel guarded trial came! The Slander shall be ailent then, His Fpell shall leave the minds ol men, And higher glory wait upen Tbo Western Patriot's luture lame. IFrom the Hartford Times.] The Lsst Procession. Methought at eventide I paused, One cold November day, Where dry and grim an " ash-pole" stood, Like ghost beside the way ; When on miae ear a wail arose, And slowly o'er mine eye, With solemn tread a lengthened train, In funeral gui*e, swept by. First, with a face whose depth of gloom Ambition's blight had cast, The " Mill-boy of the Slashes" moved The chieftest mourner past; And then to soothe his rising grief, With sympathetic tear, With solemn air, so meek biM good. Walked Frelinghuysen near. With " branding-iron" in each hand. From his far travels come, Vuiolaced in his deep despair, Stalked " Roorback," dark and glum, And sadly leaning on bis arm, His old and tender flame, In all her weeds of woe arrayed, The " Widow Bringhart" came. Then " Oeneral Edwards and hi* son," That" estimable" pair, Marched 'midst a troop of '' juveniles," And dandies with long hair; While dolorous upon the breeze, All wheezingly and wide, Like his own windy bellows, the " Poughkeepsie biacksanith" sighed. And then that " cnacl? expressly built," And decked with silk and gold, The great "embodiment" to bear, With sullen motion rolled ; And as along the dusky way Its darkening course it kept, Beside it, with bis Clay " Tribune," Poor Greeley walked and wept. Then thronged a long and dismal hast, A thousand men or more, And each upon a frowzy rag A scurvy motto bore ; And colporteurt, with " Junius" tracts, A crushing, weary load, Bent down with weariness and woo, Iu sad procession trode. And sorely on hit wounded calf, With teardrops in hi* eye, The great god-father of the " whig*," Th' immortal Webb, limped by. A doleful dirge Joe Hoxie sang Amidat that sorrowing train, And "glee clubs"and "Clay minstrels" Joined The melancholy strain. And thus they passed in long array, At evening's sombre hour And grief was heavy on each heart, With its o'ermastering power: For broken, " busted," " gone to pot," Exploded, vanished, fleu, The great whig paity was no more?
